"The. Welcome to the ninety rant with your hosts bike Antara. This is the show where we examined society from sarcastic point of view. He likened Saint conversations, this is definitely show for you. Let's get into today's topic. Why Piane people I don't know about you. But I love helping out a friend. That's why I wanna shout out, my friend, Brian Little and his podcast your favorite block it.

And at your favourite, blockhead dot com. Do me a huge favor and listened to Brian show. You'll be entertained, and you'll help out a friend now as I said, let's get into today's topic. There's gonna be some made you're running going on. Because we're scared of things L. No. That's what I scared. A what? I'm certainly not afraid of anything. But they're still going to be a lot of running going on. Why be the ones running? Oh, that's good because I don't really chills I ever high school track meet Mitchell Mitchell's, very first one, you know, what does it has just thinking about how freakin frigid? It's going to be for this track mean in this little tiny track shorts and all this cold weather. That's right. This is the school where the when we're waiting for a lesser last year that girl was warming up in like microscopic shorts. And we were like this a Catholic high school. Why are they wearing that was the entire turned? That's turned out to be the entire team had like postage stamps shorts at a Catholic high school at a Catholic house ladies. Crazy, whoever picked those uniforms is a pervert. Well. Yeah. Kind of makes you think that right? I mean, like these are high school girls, and that's what I always say to men, keyword girls. Not women girls. Right. You have to be over eighteen to be a women like what the bleep. But so Mitchell's gonna kick some butts. That's the moral the store. Yes. He is. We will see out his own, but like he did at the cross country. I. No, pine cones Mitchell. Nobody stay far away from this. Pine cones, dude. So. We've done a pizza show. I don't even I remember even remember what other one, but we did in other food. And I think it was talion restaurants. I do think it was talion down. I think he was Mexican restaurants because I remember talking about maybe it was remember talking about. That place that's on tele-, and it has the restaurant, and then it has the to go restaurant in the same straw supermac stat. Yeah. I remember talking about that. Okay. So that was probably what the second one was now today kind of related to that. But more delicious, the nightly rent taco episode taco addition. That's right. Sponsored by elite podcast agency dot com. Taco night. So we're gonna talk about tacos. How many how many taco though, it's not even Tuesday. How many tacos good thing because we don't release on Tuesdays. We release on Mondays Wednesdays and Fridays. So it will never be Tuesday show, even if it's actually Tuesday, that's the crazy part because we do record on various funky days. And then we put them out in order. Anyway. So we've compiled a list of six fabulous taco locations in southern California six I thought it was six what are they in? No particular order. This is in the order that I remembered them, then you're talk. Oh, taco Naza straight up. Tacos. Tacos. Loci king taco, Jim Boyce. Tacos. Ice. That's a nice list. That's a really good list. So let's just go in that order. Okay. And then when we're done you'll give your top three, and I'll give my top three. Or do you want to just rank them in order from one to six which would you prefer? We can do them in the order their end. No, I'm saying at the end, do we just give our top three? Or do. We rank them in order top three. That's what I thought. It's faster ngs year who cares lawn. I like for other stat who cares who's four five interview hard enough to get one two and three. So I one on the list is sin your taco. All right. You go first. This was officially the first non shitty asking Etienne Mexican food. I had ever send your talk. Oh was. Yeah. You there when I came here. And I told you that the most Mexican food that it exists in Berta is Taco Bell Taco Bell. Yeah. Hey, Taco Bell was voted the best Mexican restaurant in the United States. Come on. Now. Sounds like nited states the rest of the United States and Canada, they're kind of unlock sink. So I have like I have a love for sitting taco because I see that explains it, and I did not realize that. That explains it now does it mystifies me sometimes how much love senior taco a home because you know. I like senior taco, but I like send your taco more because of the people who are there that own it. I think it's delicious. But I don't even think I would put them in my top three out of this list. I don't I don't. I think that their meat tends to be dry, chicken or beef. I think they're salsa is eve their biggest problem with salsa. First of all, they're salsa has wonderful flavor and a kick ass heat their red salsa kicks your ass, but the pro- the problem is that you overpower the taste. The wonderful taste with that heat that just it's like a brush fire in your mouth. I heard you like crazy there. It's kind of overpowers owned then the problem is with the green sauce for me. Is it doesn't have any kick. It has great flavor. And in fact, I'm going to tell you that it's very similar to what the red sauce flavor tastes like, wouldn't you can sense it through the heat? And that's the problem too, much heat. And so I think they that what I started doing and it works. It's half and half mix the two together. And it's like all heavenly it. Kind of tones down the heat and kicks up. The flavor I could put their green salsa on everything like you degreen heath us on every it's so good. Don't get me. Started about the green. We're not talking about that tonight. Is that would be good on tacos? So so you you give what you give you know. We did it a five star scale. What do you give said? Your talk. Oh. I could give six five stars. If I wanted to. I'm gonna give taco for because I do agree with you that sometimes they're a little dry. Okay. And it depends on the time every day, and I'm going to give them a three. Wow. Thinks in your talk owes average. It's three. Who's next on the list? Hold up though. I have a question before you move on. Sure. Are we allowed to have stars his yelp? Yeah. Okay. Second on the list the place. We've only been it's literally anything between zero and five with one tenth increments. So point one point two point three point four point five at cetera. So you could rate someone at three point eight tie solid three taco nozzle. Okay. Let me let me talk about talk on Hausa. I and she talked first about whatever's nameless. Senior talk it's cool because I wanna talk I number three on the list, so taco nozzle was hilarious. But at the time, I'm gonna be honest at the time. I couldn't let it be known to you. How hilarious thought it was? Because at that time not now. But at that time when it came to things of direction you were very sensitive about being teased about the direction. So you said or standing in the field, and you point at this like Walgreens e looking shopping center, and you go found this Mexican food place. And it's just like right over here you point over there. And I, you know, now, I've got it in my head that that's where it is. So I look at the map and like, yeah, that's really close that Sam yet. So we're we're cruising out of the place. We decided it's so close the we're not gonna leave and come back for the parking and try to fight for parking. We're gonna keep our parking spot. We're gonna walk there yet can see we'll shady Tam could thing that we did that because we get to the exit of the parking lot. And we're about to turn. Right to go to where the Walgreens parking lot. And all of a sudden, they go. Hey, there it is right there. And it was literally across the street from where we were like, you could just walk straight line. And you were there. So tell them about the crowd. Well. People who were there told us the crowd was because there was a soccer tournament right across the street. We've since gone there again, and he was almost as busy at like three in the afternoon. Yeah. Pretty I would say about ninety five percent of the same capacity as it was the first day right there. Just wasn't a line. But there was still no tables right anyway. Okay. So we get there and the line there had to be fifty people ahead of us on some lines out the door. And there's also like an express taco stand right next to it like tacos and your line was even bicker. So we're like there the to go only one, which is brilliant. We thought well it has to be good because all the people in line. Are hispanic? That's generally, how you judge if you're going to a place it's going to have good food going Asian Wall. As especially especially where we were, you know, it's in belfry, and there's a lot of Hispanic people that live in that area, and because of Norwalk in that area sort of like, you know, more Hispanic area. It's it's not like, you know, that's the interesting thing Hispanic people in white people are very similar in this respect. We don't usually group group up into like, you know, little Saigon where it's all Vietnamese people or Chinatown, and we don't usually grew up into those things. And I think it's interesting. So yeah, you got to hurry in barbecue. If you go to if you walk into Korean barbecue. And there's a lot of people who are Korean than you know, trust is going to be good. If it's all white people or all all whatever other than the Korean people. Then you're kinda like, well, you're not getting you know, you're not gonna get fed tick Korean by ri- anyway. It's interesting. It's just really interesting. So we waited in line there. Many was pretty decent. They had like free samples while you're waiting, and then we got our food. And it was just freaking amazing. So good. So talk owes were. So so soak it, yeah. And. You know, we. My one gripe with taco nozzle. Other than their kind of is they're sizing of like their sides. You order a small salsa, and you get like a thin like if anyone's ever been to RB's, and they have the little ketchup sauce containers, you get like something about that size. He didn't come only that we ordered a new for the salsa, and then the guacamole was in even smaller container than that. Yeah. The smog. Welcome only. Then go back, and you go. Okay. Next time, we're going to get the large. Holy pooh. It was juice like jarring norm is to the point where you're like. Well, wait a second. If the small was like this one hundred times, bigger, what the hell for the largest twice the price of this mall. And you'd be an idiot not to get the large. And that's my complaint, though, is that it's confusing because then one time we got the medium or somebody got the media. I think Deborah ordered a medium, and it was kind of skimpy. So it's like the small and the medium or sort of like who would buy that. And then they they're tricking you into buying the bigger one and spend in the more money because it becomes the value. And you know, what I can't begrudge them that because it's kind of like, well, it's kind of like if you like we do with our business. If you contact us after hours, and you have to have work done. You're paying the price that it says in the contract, and sometimes it's ten times the hourly rate like it's crazy, but people pay it if it's an emergency. I guess it's the same thing here if you're gonna if you're gonna try to only get a little bit deaf to work just as hard to give you that little bit is to give you that whole big old jug. So they they charge you more and try to push you towards the the volume they make more money, you get more product. It's kind of a win win. I think. And there there's also was good. I give this also a high rating, I thought they were a little bit expensive pricewise in general. Okay. That should definitely be taken into consideration five star rating. It was more than three dollars per taco. Unless you got the combo. Yeah. Yeah. Whereas the first one, listen, you're talk. Oh is like seven fifty four tacos and a drink. Yes. A dollar eighty five or something like that. So to give the let's just we'll just give the price comparison here might as well. So. Yeah. That's a good point. So I would rate them. Three point eight, and I'm gonna tell you that a huge portion of what I didn't give them is because of price. And I think price could be addressed by jesting the damn portion sizes to where they're correct. Yeah. And I think I'm going to give them a three point nine, and yes, I agree with you that a lot of my is because of price and because they're if you're going to call your tacos chicken, dry tacos chicken was equally as dry. You know, have I had a chicken taco there? I don't think you have to be once every time and the beef is this really case delicious. Oh my gosh. Juicy. Love that stuff. So. Okay. So you give it three point nine gave it a three point eight. Yeah. That's good. That's good. So far. I'm averaging three point four. Yeah. And you're averaging point nine five three point nine five. That's great. So we're cooking. So what's the next one? I just love tacos. It's how this goes. So the next one is actually the reason that we've been putting off doing this taco episode for as long as we have straight up tacos. Oh, the car wash taco played. So I tell him I tell him like three months ago, there's a new taco place in Cyprus, and I want to try it. And then he asked me where it is. And I made the mistake of telling him where it was. Stop right there people. We spoke in on this show before about a certain trip to Glendale where in we went to a sandwich shop that we found on yelp high ratings sounded tasty drove all over high heaven in Glendale to get to this place walked to the damn door. And it's like the lobby of a market a supermarket, and I said hell, no, we're not eating here. So why would you think that a place in a car wash would have gotten any different reception for me? So this place appears hold on before you going further. I will go on the record saying. That I'll tell you later whether I was wrong or right? This place. It shows up in the new in the new no hot and nearby section of yelp which I get all these notifications. So you know, I was like okay hot and nearby. It's not actually what it's called. I can't remember. Anyway, good thing. Anyway, it it comes up in the in the that. Okay. And then so or whatever it's called. Yeah. That's shit. And so I go to take a look, and it's got like forty reviews on yelp. And it's only been open for a week. I'm like how the heck do you get so many reviews, maybe it's sketchy like Asian place. We will never mentioned again. And so I watched it. I watched it for for the last few months, and you notice recently, I've started to be like car wash tacos take me to the car wash tacos like a little bit more annoyingly. That's because they're reviews have continued to grow the reviews have been continuing to grow. So person could see it. Anyway, anyway, so tonight, I'm feeling feisty tonight gonna kick you so tonight we finally go. Get gestation tacos. No car wash tacos gestation too. But it's a car wash makes a huge difference. There's also a gas station. There's always a gas station when there's a car wash. There's there's not always a car wash. When there's a gas station. There is not yes issue when there's a car is there a fucking gas station at the car wash you take our car to know there is that's a data to car wash. This is a full service car while full service car every full service car wash. I will correct. My wording every full service car wash. Has gasoline name one that doesn't? Mitchell says it's not full service. Yeah. Actually, it is you pull your car up, and you get out, and they take your car through four you you don't drive through that one Ben through there many times when he used to live. I don't know. So I'm just gonna let you two are not like the one that we go to now where you stay in the car and go through I don't care to me those anyway, whatever the car gas washed tacos stand. What was it called again straight up? Tacos. Say again, straight up Thomas one more time now. So we watch eight up tacos walk in inside place where the heck Allah -fornia heck the tacos on Walker and crescent you're pissing me off talking over me. Actually talking so yourself in between, you know, you're not I am. Anyway, I told people where it was so continue tell them how nice the people were how about I finished. What I was freaking saying for then we can tell them how nice people were walk in. And we're like where the hell's the tacos walked into this weird asked little car wash e lobby massage chairs, and there's a grumpy looking clerk behind like a cash. Register we knew the tacos were there. At least I now the talk smell them. And then I could see that young couple that was sitting right there as we came into the right? And they had tacos I was like there's gotta be tacos here somewhere. But where are the tacos? So we just kept walking we found them, and sir spray painting kind of spray painted the wall made it if you think about it it made it look like a food truck. Yeah. Kind of cool. So the atmosphere. Karawaci? But you agree with me that you really wouldn't want to eat there unless you were getting your car washed at the time, which case you might eat there. Do you want? Do you want? My honest opinion of straight up tacos. I haven't said what I think about it. Yet you go. I well, you get to go first by what you what you ate. Then I say what I ate. And then you get to say what you thought about what you ate. And then I say what I thought about what I ate then we'll move onto the next one. And I get to go first. So now that we're going over the rules like an elementary school classroom. The only settle Get ready to listen. Up a second. You the one who complained that when we go to a restaurant. They have to any rules is setting rules of how I can talk about my talk Ohs. No, we just had those rules in the beginning before we started the episode he discussed I was going to be and you were in paying attention to them. So I just made sure you pay attention to them Nuff said, let's go. Anyway, I had chicken tacos and Trump tacos you had shrimp. Yeah. I don't know. Why thought you had to be on? I two I two into chicken. It'd be I tuned to chicken. Put. But here's a hitting nine chili lime or line chillier, whatever it was or Chilean lime or some crazy ass thing. Like that. How did he get that? How did you get what the taco that? He had see here. That's what they were called online. Oh, so it's basically the same thing. Yes. They're the same thing at the at the place they had a handwritten sign that had steak chicken shrimp. So like the extra descriptive words weren't super necessary. So so I had I had to Achi oh, lay steak ones. And to citrus chicken ones. They were the freakin bomb. They were good. They were tasty. They were very very yummy. Also, the freaking Bob Mitchell's that his the frequent Brom Elizabeth in love with her burrito. That's right. She had a burrito. She goes to the burrito. And this experience at straight up. Tacos makes me want to next time. We're in Glendale just the two of us. Go back to that Italian to market get sandwiches and sit in the car to eat them. No, we're not. Doesn't work. Yes. It does. Yes, it does. They have good one of your biggest problems. I drive. You don't have said I never have to go there. Again, always never have there ever. Again. I can just say. And we just don't go there. Then literally never asked me to pick were having lunch yet. Well, that'd be great too. I just have whatever I want why she makes threats that she doesn't really want to make this sound like I wouldn't always pick. Whatever you want be is every single day. What do you want to have for lunch? I don't know what I what I don't even hungry. We you have to pick. What we have for lunch. That's how the conversation goes every day. Can't pick. Why could pick? If I wanted to do lots of things. But my thing is here's the problem. I'm the guy that if you fed me chicken breast five times a day every day seven days a week three hundred sixty five days a year and then through in some broccoli. And every once in a while a little bit oatmeal or some rice, I could live all year long off that shit. So what does that mean that means that you know, what five felt like it? I could eat arby's every single meal arby's. Did you hear me earlier? Are you hearing what I'm saying? She stopper. That's why I don't pick. Because if I picked y'all would be bored. We had this conversation. It was called. I don't know you pick thousand of the episode don't know the number. But I know that it was called. I don't know you pick. You can put in the search bar on the website yogis podcast network dot com. Put it in there. You'll find it. We've had this conversation before. Yeah. And I told you didn't care if we saved thing every day 'cause I'll take something different for at what you say. This guy gets hired a frigging picking where we go for frigging lunch. Every frigging time ago for lunch. But you do such a good job care of your knees. Eight it it's annoying. And I never tell you whether I like the lunch spot or not I'm aware piss. Me off. But you know, why? If I if I had a real problem with it. No, if I had a real problem with it. I would tell you. So I haven't told you so so that means I don't have a real problem with it. So back to straight up tacos, tell us what you thought about your food just fucking dead. Well, you didn't give it a number. Now, did you you were supposed to go. First you toiling, you're going. I know you were supposed to go first on this one. It's the third one full of his own rules. You know, what I'm gonna cut the audio out of this. And prove you once again to be wrong. Vigil is being feisty. I gave it a four point two nine. Just gave it a flat four, okay. It lost one entire point for car to car wash take that thing out of the car wash. And put it like where which which was that would get a five. I think. Mitchell, slipping, you the bird, I know for no apparent reason, I won't talk and have have what the rating is. I mean, I could handle my microphone for a second. And he could tell us what his rating is since he clearly thinks it was a five. I think if they're doing really well where they are which yelp suggests they are and the number of people ordering on a Wednesday night suggests they are. It was if you could call it busy. It was busy. I think that it won't. And they had like nineteen to go order sitting waiting for like post mates. Like, I think that. Those poor people tacos don't travel super. Well, you gotta get him in go. That's what we did. We went. But I think that they could probably move onto a bigger and better place. They're gonna have to they would do have done. Well. In the Taco Bell location. I can't remember now just remembered. I don't remember the one truck was. But there was a burger truck. I know it was the burnt truck and the dogs Zillah try, and they had burnt zilla as a restaurant, and it was smart on their part because it gave them a place to prepare their food need enough to pay for that. And they don't have to pay so much insurance. It's a lot cheaper. When it's your own business. And yet they were able to still do the food trucks, plural. And have that restaurant and was smart that they teamed up together. All right next on the list. What's next on the goes, look, I talk goes the KYW tacos. The KYW reminds me in its approach of zen. You're talk. Oh. And interestingly enough, I feel as though. I think that the re of the first four have been owned by you know, a family that's run the business for awhile. And you know, period, it's just a family run kind of business. Which means that. Get kind of an odd service. Sometimes the way they present things is kind of odd because somebody got a bug up there. But and decided they're going to do like that one Mexican restaurant that we went to that had all the rules about you know, doing this and doing that and doing the other thing, and you're just like what am I allowed to do? Maybe that'd be easier for you to tell me because there's an awful lot of things. I'm not allowed to do. You know, you just kind of get that kind of protest. You don't get perks for. Yeah. Yeah. Exactly. And you don't get the kind of approach from corporate restaurant because they understand the importance of being consistent. And you you know, what it's not like, they don't actually charge you for that stuff. They just buried in the price how to charge properly as yet his people off, right? So. This place. We've driven past it a million times talked about it every talk about we should go there. We should go there. We should go there. We should go. There finally length there. We've actually been there twice now. And. I think the first time round all I was boring, and I just had like three Carne Asada tacos. And you know, you had Carne Asada chicken you had at least one chicken one. Did I yes? Because your love with the chicken, and you've had all to time we've been there. Next time, you're going to get all three chicken ones. Yeah. You know, why? On fortunately for them. They're beef and their approach are lot like send your taco just dry. But the chicken so good. It's juicy tender. It has flavor I give out a thumbs up. What their chicken we need to tell Adam from the Ataman doctor show about their shaking tacos because he always says their drugs tacos draw like thirty five thousand year rant. But how every single chicken taco in the world is dry, and I tend to agree with him despite liking chicken tacos, a whole lot that places wasn't weren't tried all not even a little bit. Even a hint of dry. Remind me to tell you later about. The dude who sent us a video DM on Instagram. I'll tell you about it later. Anyway, continue as I don't wanna break up our topic. But so I don't know. I think the talk is the KAI. If I was eating all chicken or even their pork. That's right. The one the fourth time I had pork and chicken. And I liked the pork in the chicken. I didn't like the beef as much it was still tasty boost kind of dry, and then the second time you also had be forking chicken. And pork wasn't as good, right? The pork was a little more dry. But the chicken was consistent. So I would next time just have all chicken. And so because of that might get shrimp would because of that I'm gonna give them fish the same kind of smackdown as car wash place. They're going to get a four point. Oh, really? Yes. So I the first time we went I had the pork. And the chicken because I don't really eat beef very often. And then I had like two pork and one chicken because trying to try something new I freaking love the chicken. But the pork was my absolute favorite. And then I was really disappoint. The second time because the pork was kind of kind of the second time and the chicken the tricky, right? The chicken, still fabulous. And what I like is they have like seven or eight different kinds of salsa, and they they don't put any toppings on your tacos, but they have a top bar where you just put like what you want which is perfect for somebody who's kind of picky. Sometimes like me. Shut up. I give them for you are the most picky not picky person. And I mean that exactly how sounds you. You go with the flow. So well that you're picking is doesn't stick out like a sore thumb there are those people that are so picky that you're just like e Gad's I don't wanna go to dinner with them because they're going to be like this. And it's gonna make me uncomfortable. You're not like that. But you're picky enough that it's noticeable that you're picky. Sarah, Crema, Taco Bell. Really bothers me. I know you're hot button or hold button or whatever because they put it all in one giant blog at one end of your burrito. That's because they basically use bitches. It's basically use a spackling gun. The thing is just nasty. I don't mind a little bit of sour cream. But do I really wanted to use all over everything? Why are we talking about talk about or not? Anyway, they're talking aren't even close. We're talking about how although I kind of do talk, but they're not real Taco's. I don't know. Anyway. Anyway, anyway, so I gave it a four and a half. I only gave them a four. So I'm gonna switch. The order talk does the KAI as your favorite so far. What's my favorite been so far? It's tied between talk as the Kiei and join up, Tom and straight up tacos. All right. What's the next one? I'm going to switch the order of. Now, we said we're doing this order were doing, but I wanna talk about one in you'll want to talk about the other one. Okay. Hold on a second half conference with the dog young. So she wants to change the order, and there's only two left. Her reasoning is because she says it's because she wants to talk about one, and I wanna talk about the other. But since I never said what I wanted to talk about the real reason is she wants to talk about one that she won't talk about if we don't switch the order. That's the real reason. So what do you think should we do? It haven't other suggestion. Yogi says do it. Well, other suggestion is that you could just talk decision has been taken care of your case next is Jim voice tacos. And the reason I want to talk about this one because I found them on Instagram, and I was like did he really yes. I thought you found on Facebook. But okay. No. I found them when we first started the website Instagram account. I was following local people in local and cross this page massive cravings that I now. Follow on all of these Graham accounts because I always want to see their stuff they post the most glorious food in the entire world. That's also how I found Hollick. Okay, continue. Okay. So I see this like majestic to Kito thing on my Instagram feet. And there was like six two key does sticking out of like this guacamole heap. You're making me drool assist. So freaking good. And then I go I love Takito. I go to their page. Mitchell likes tuck, he does a lot. So I go to their page, and I tell me where. And they tell me where these this this Takito. Majestic pile is from and I was I came to you. And I was like I want to go to this place. You're like by Disneyland. I don't care. I want to go to this place. Now, we could go to one of those six other ones that are around wanna bet they're also like two dollars per taco cheaper probably because they're not directly across the street from Disneyland. So we go, and this place is he's not kidding on the Disney guarded walk. Whenever it's called. Yeah. And so- parking. He had to like drive around like six times before he found parking in a hotel. And then we finally get in there. And we brought the dog. So I have to wait outside. That's right. Yogi came with us. And so I told you what I wanted. He ordered for me. I remember just having a couple of shredded beef taco shell and a the deep fried them with you know, a meet and everything inside the shell. It's not like they did the shell separately in kicked the beef separately stuck at all together. Right. But it in there. They put lettuce and cheese. And I think even radish was on their remember them having like a lot of super super Mel tease. Yes. I feel about cheese. Yes. I do. So like, I don't know. They were amazing though can was shady because it's right by Disneyland and people who aren't at Disneyland don't really wanna go near Disneyland. But like I went to the location in Bray. I think we'd be a lot happier. It's also wanted Huntington beach. But I I think the one in Huntington beach would be a bigger zoo than the ticketing lead one 'cause I wanna nineteen beaches, right, right on the beach. It's right on. By the bramhall. Think we could always try that. It's not that far. I mean. It's every bit as close as like where we drove to tonight. I mean, that's not that far. Right. Might be a little actual little further Indiana's. No for that. Isn't that? You're right. So I so what did you rate them haven't yet? Okay. I remember having the beef shredded beef, and what I like about the approach of frying it together. Is it seals in the moisture like the shell gets hard. And with the meat being so hot it doesn't use like oil and whatever at the shell. And let's the shell get really rigid. Then the oil and stuff can't make it all soft and good. She that's what usually kills those kind of tacos, you know, and they perfected that like don't get me wrong. There beef was a little bit. You know, the shredded beef is a little bit on the greasy side probably because he was deep fried. Right because it just captured the oil, but the taco was crunchy all the way through and like it. It was a lot to each taco. You got. Yeah. Now when we went the only thing that I was disappointed by is. I couldn't find the Takito thing that I had originally seen on Instagram on the freaking menu. It was there. But maybe when we go to the other one, and I can actually go inside because we want I'll find it who says we won't have, yuck. Well, if we do he'll be in history. Exactly. Yeah. So so that's what I thought about it too. I thought it was really good. It was juicy was tasty crunchy their salsa was kind of. Mediocre? If I'm remembering correctly, my score for them is four point six, and I'm a four point five. Wow. They're my favorites. So far of all these. Wow. And so then the last one on the list is I guess, you're right. I didn't know if you'd want to talk about this one. Specifically, all I knew is I want to check with the other one. Is king taco. Taco. So I had to go first you get to go first. King taco not sure what to say about king. You don't get to talk about the funky. Nachos. It's another. Yeah. It's another. Restaurant styled, Linda, similar fashion to like send your taco and tacos, the KYW there that similar style of place, you know, and kind of fast food, but not really like McDonald's fast-food is, you know, right? Mexican fast food, but with authentic cooking. So, you know, the meaning the quality of the the beef and chicken, and whatever she should little bit lower. But they make up for it with the flavors and things that, you know, infused into and so it's kinda tasty. It's like it's like when I took you to Naga lls, it's like a little bit different. It's not better than but it's different from Taco Bell. We left out. Yeah. But you know, what they're not as good as these. I don't think in the same class. It's like Taco Bell. You know, just like, I think I think honestly, Jim boys. Tacos, kind of fits better with Taco Bell novels etcetera. Yeah. Than it does with all. Street. Tacos conversation that we were having our in. You guys didn't really agree with me then. So maybe changed your mind, or maybe you just wouldn't speak up because I was saying that I don't think it's fair to compare like deep fried tacos. Like Jim boys to St. tacos because you know, what in all honesty. I think probably the overall best tacos the street tacos from the different places like taco Nozoe talk as the KYW send your taco etcetera. Those are the best tacos like for sure. By far the best tacos. Tasty is taco, but. From like flavor explosion experience. Yeah. The deep fried ones just they have a beat or something about the fat. And you know, the oil mixed in there, then like you said the melted cheese. And so it's not fair to compare them. You gotta compare them amongst themselves. And you know, what we just set ourselves up for another episode about tacos 'cause we can we can give our actual top-three based on these ratings. It'll be easy. Right. And then. Come back to another episode, or at least a segment of another episode and talk about. Which hard shell tacos. Where the best ones, you know, the fried which soft show soft tacos were the best ones and come up with a real winner. So I give them. King taco. I haven't heard us running back there anytime soon. I'd say is solid. Two point five. Yeah. They were kind of want. I mean, I remember I got to talk os. And I got like a weird s Casetta thing and like. The Salzone the tacos was spicy. And there was a lot of it. And so I don't remember. Eat taco very much. And like, I'm me I had asked for the sauce on the side. And they didn't listen. Well, I thought about it. Okay. Real quick though. Because because you kind of going to go down a different path, which you can go down. But before we go there I felt like. I felt like I said before that the quality of the meat and stuff wasn't quite there. Ryan than the service was kind of. Service was kind of you know, and that to me was disappointing. And I think I think that their food was actually better than two point five. I mean, the price alone. Were senior taco priced their prices were decent. Yeah. And so they deserve better than a two point five, but they're getting in two point five because you know, it's kind of like home wasn't really mind blowing food and like those nachos receiver weird like you said carrots and cauliflower in that they were weird. And. Service was sorta horrendous. Soared and the, you know, they put you like a bankers line to get through sort of I dunno unusual, strange and uncomfortable. So so two point five for them there at the bottom of the heap is my rating for them. Okay. You brought up the weird. Nachos eyebrow up. The weird case is my rating of them based hundred percent on the two tacos and the service or does the Caissoti factor in everything factors in you eight. I'm going to give them a two point seven. But I was going to give them like a two point one. If the case had he didn't factor. So the case was good. It was it was better than everything else. That we always talk about that. And it's very true people need to understand that point. Just because it brought the rating up merely means it's higher than a two point one by itself. It doesn't mean that. It's good. It could be a two point seven for all. We know. You know what I'm saying? Like, yeah. I don't know that one kind of want want. At least everything wasn't amazing. It was just disappointing. So I think that leaves us both with Jim voice tacos in the lead JIMBO is number one. And both with tacos the second is chi- second than I have tacos third. And I've seen your talk with third. Yup. And I told you DACA, send your taco wouldn't be in my top three. And I was right. I have senior chocolate stalls. You love. Well, I think that's fair. I'm wondering, and I'm gonna have to check into this. But I'm wondering if it's because. Because like I said to you talk owes the KAI day would be I'll be honest. They'd be a two point five if I was just eating the pork or just the beef, and I hadn't had chicken. Okay. So I wonder what would happen to send your taco. If I started eating their chicken, the best time has, you know, who really loves send your taco is you in Deborah. Yeah. Both ether chicken. Yeah. So maybe their chicken is just more consistent because there are tying. It's there are times when their beef is yummy. Don't get me wrong. But unfortunately, more often than not the beef is just kinda well, no one day the one day, Deborah, and I went without you. I don't know where you were why we didn't. Yeah. You weren't coming to us. But. And we we've got there just as they finished making a fresh batch of the chicken sweet hell, it was amazing. Like, it was the best thing I've ever put in my mouth. Yeah. But it's not always like that. It is it does tend to be a little dry side. Joke. I just let go by. And I'm gonna continue to let go by give says cannon. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. I I'm gonna have to give that a shot. So so those are top three on each side. I think that's interesting. How that worked out? We really want to go back to voice we both really liked Jim boys. We both. We both really like Jim boys. We both really liked tacos the KYW. And and it's funny. Look at that. I think in a sense, we can already say we don't even have to have another episode because the best we would we would be an agreement. The best defied talk os was Jim boys. Tacos. What's that? I've never had other deep. Fred tacos. Right. You have the other kind as I've had it like yet. Supermax and what was the other headed? I can't remember, but one of the places that we've talked about here. I had it there too. I know I time a taco Nozoe. I had crispy tacos both times. I had Krispy taught us takanaga hit crispy ones both types. Anyway, good stuff tasty food. But would you agree with what I said originally that? The quality of the salsa. Closely corresponds to the quality of the whatever, I don't think it's all about the salsa. I think it's the sauce because like we had we had those straight up tacos tonight. And my chicken tacos when I put the green sauce on them and made them better. But I still like one thousand percent preferred the ones because the sauce they put on them was like a+. It wasn't salsa. It was like some kind of lame AO stuff. I don't know why you went off on that tangent. Because it's a simple. Yes. Or no question. Do you agree? Yes. Or no. That if they have bad salsa who cares whether the sauces good battering different if they have bad salsa to even list. Do they also have not as good food? All I did was add sauce to salsa I understand, but they're taking unnecessary tangent. No. So do the refused. Disagree with fine dough the Dan effing sauce in there if bad salsa and bad sauce, or what if they have good sauce and bad salsa? I still say they have a regardless they end up having not as good food, and that goes back to proving that it's the salsa not the sauce in my mind. And you're the other way around I think that's funny. You're the other way around on that issue. But I think it's the the saucy part of the taco because the saucy part of sure, but does he with you that makes the taco, and I think it's because I think it's because really good salsa can cover up a multitude of sins when it comes to the beef and the chicken you overcooked the beef a little bit. But you've got some good spicy salsa notices, honestly, I think that's one of the things I like so much about tacos Kiei is because they have so many different kinds of salsa that I just like that avocado cream. They hang your own like pilot on my freaking taco because I think it's so good. Yeah. Yeah. Well, it's like, I we we can do this another time. We'll do breakfast burritos. That'd be one. We'll do at some point. To eat a couple more breakfast for. Yes. But we'll do that. But like the one what is that out boroughs down there near the kids? Mom's house. My favorite. It has good. It has a good breakfast burrito. But here's the thing. Sauce was weird. It's the red salsa and the green sausa- in a certain proportion when you mix them and it something like. One and a half red and like three quarter green. When you put it in there and mix it all up. All my gosh with their bacon their bacon. Breakfast burrito. With a has so much egg on my God. I think there's four eggs in that thing. Probably the new eat that thing. All my gosh. It is so good. And I don't eat the I don't eat the tortilla ninety nine percent of the time. I dec- inter inter sinked impart at their red salsa is disgusting which send that's the majority of what they put on their breakfast burritos. So no, they don't put any sauce on it. You put it on the give you the red. Have you had this also ended already? I never ads also to anything. Except senior. It was really good Mitchell's being discussed as really good, but but we can do breakfast burritos. But that's the thing like being consistent. And you're even there the reason I liked their breakfast burrito. Isn't because of what's on the inside of it's because of the salsa hundred your weird like that you're kind of salsa fiend hundred percent will at true. I I don't really like tortilla chips that much I like the salsa that you eat with the tortilla chips or the guacamole that you eat with the tortilla chips. Yep. Anyway. I have had enough of this topic about tacos well and taco to yield later. He. Good night. Everyone ASTA the Baiba. Thank you for listening to the nightly.

Doing this doing that tournament of droppings doing the podcast. Yeah. So does follow you fifty percents? That's true. But you know, what it's important business. We gotta figure it out. And I think you know, there is a again, we got the Dave Thomas Cup is in the building sitting on the table in front of us. The stakes are established is what is on my kitchen table all year round. You could find another place for it. You choose not to. Oh, cool. I'm saying you could display it tastefully on the put it you can either put into. Amen. Story about it's much much bad this trophy.

But we we're talking about the stakes here. And I mean before the podcast you, and I were texting it moved onto social media. We got to attend to this business. I mean, we had some controversy going on with the two of us. And I really feel like you know, you may have seen this on social media. You may have seen this controversy. That's going on don't know over talking. I'm like we had the two of us were bickering over something. And it seems like you're going to backtrack. What what do you mean? I'm gonna backtrack. We'll tell them what happened. Okay. So here's what happened. We had a bitch wanted to have the Taco Bell taco for tonight's the entry for taco tonight for that to be cheesy Gordeeva crunch, and there was some a great menu item. There was some controversy over whether that qualified as a taco I deferred as we do to the thority figure in this relation in this in this. In this relationship. I have a professional working relationship, and we have someone who kind of functions as a mediator deferred to this individual. And he made a ruling, and then you tried to peel to to the general public teams took it to the people, and they sided with me, they said cheesy Gerda crunch is a fucking taco. Well, we're going to settle it. But you know, I think it settled we're going to sell it. We're going to have to get into it here. We're going to save a qualifies. But no. No. What is? Who is right grew him. Boy. The Commissioner adobo is tournament of champions. Turn it on. You can't turn my microphone. My went over it and tech. So it was big attention. I'm gonna make a brief statement. Afterwards. We'll get into it. Evan Susser states on the toilet longer. Hello and welcome to munch madness tournament of champions mouth of the border alive. Finale. For the crowd noticeably less enthusiastic. For those who don't know me. I am beloved tournament. Commissioner infested. Confessor? His fitting that this show is live in front of the fans because this year has been all about the fans more than once we've turned to you to give your thoughts on how to proceed and that is why Commissioner I'm declaring this year's heart of the champion award to you. Fans it's into the heart of the champion. Yeah. You said champion you fucked it up chomping very close to champion. They're so now, let's get into business. I the matter at hand. Yes. Does the cheesy to crunch count as a taco? There are two chairs at the table between me and mentioned Susser has chosen on a stool behind as long back wall for some reason above you. Okay. As it should be. Mitch believes that should count. Yes. Nick, did not they put it to me. And I said because I think that it's not a tortilla. It's like a different kind of thing that's made. But right, Mitch went rogue. That's right. And he put it to Twitter, and he said. Pulling it up for dramatic our own. We'll just wait a few. The cheese to crunch count to the taco option in the final tonight. No del taco could also have similar menu items counting the tournament skewed question skewed question, and you one I want seventy three percent of the vote. I so not being hit democracy. I also put out a poll, and I said should Mitch get his way with the rules of the tournament of champions because he threw a fit and guess what? You also won that one. So because it's about the fans, I'm deciding it does count. Next. Thank you. Do. Next order of business. On my very well received with here and sit down here. A shut in our there on my very we. Well received appearance earlier in the tournament. Yes. I brought up the issue that some chains have been the collected. And again, I put to vote of the fans God should there. Be a surprise entrant in the finale, we threw out a couple of MOS Baja fresh where it got worse a couple of years. And then the last auction was in and out perito Wendy's taco. And guess what? Baby. That one. And so I have those here with me Jesus Christ tonight. Which I should warn you. I'm bad at making food. But here they are and uses the are enough for everyone. Oh, thank call. So you guys will be able to enjoy those a little bit later. What a nightmare. I don't want to eat this. I'm already so full. I feel I feel terrible. Also, we're going to let these sit for another forty minutes. Did you make these in your car? Did you on my car that better? No with utensils or did you use your fingers? Look, do you want to know the answer to all these questions? I mean made him as offensively as I could. Okay. And involve pulling double doubles and eating a few burgers. Be it. So I want to be crystal clear on the rules. This is another entrant that we are judging against the remaining three that's one by potentially equipped me your thing. It probably will. Okay. It's probably will. Yes. It is. Vehement? Well, I I just want to get to the bottom of the lays you have as well. Because have you have you got an in? There's a survivor theme. Yeah. We always talk about survivor the so I have lays how about that. And also while on the subject, Nick, I see the way you're dressed. It's not big enough. The late fit around head. One for Nicole. Wider. I'm the Probst. You're not the fucking on the Probst on the Probst. God you're though iding over the boring man, foreign guy. Susser before we let you go. I have one question for you in the upcoming sonic, the hedgehog movie. Can you confirm that sticks? The badger has a snowboard race with storm the albatross neck, you'll have to listen to Delhi, boys. Where we'll get into it. All right. Thank you. Everybody say such everybody. Say it's. That too. You got it on your bare skin bears guided like off put around your hoodie. He wanted to get a Tiki torch for me, he was real. I swear that's the truth. He was pushing us we've gotta get a Tiki tour. You would think that a Jewish man in two thousand nineteen would not wanna be flanked by guys like you and me holding Tiki torches. But hey, he was he was all in for it. We really wanted that to happen. Hey, let's introduce our guest. Okay. Let's do it. You know from nailed it and her layers podcast. Why won't you date me? Give it up for Nicole. The way. Kids. You don't. Ripping the hate looking than the Knicks. They might even. They. My phone one. Come over here. Oh boy. You are a hero for agreeing to this. What we had to do prior to this show. And now having to doing a full show with them. How are you feeling right now very full? I ate so much so quickly. Right. And that wasn't part of the challenge. Taking my time. But I was like now put it in your body. I it feels like the end of two thousand one space odyssey, but I was coming out here. Just the lights and everything right? I saw myself as an old, man. I kinda see is baby. I've never seen the movie. We'll really I've never seen anything. I didn't ask you this earlier always saving who you fucking. Apps. Thank you. All right. I have a pseudo. All right. Breaking tonight with. I got my this hungover here fix the Mike situation. She's a sim Nelio give me a hall pass. Nelly by the way, came to the came to tech and then left. She's like go get. I don't give me more than a hall. I think she let you skip school forever. Well, the tournament being what it is. He didn't cut out. He caught that microphone. Really cool. It was fucking awesome. It was like catching the like an ice cream cone by the ice cream part. What's because he cut like that? All let's. You ruined by the cone. Yes. So if he is crazy. Thank you. And you start getting media. I mean, maybe. How do I just this microphone? I don't know, Stu. You're not stupid. I've been my troubles dumbing. No, not at all. Well, okay. I figured it out the turn of the tournament being what it is. They're always twists and turns. And what is going to happen right now, we are eliminating one of these three chains immediately. So here's how this will work. We will count everyone's fucking blown away. Maybe the show will be done a little sooner. We will count down from three to one, and we will say in unison, which of these three chains. Joba poquito moss Taco Bell. We will eliminate right now. And there went to a final two, that's right, which of these three chains. Are we going to condemn to the fate of Mitch do you want to describe what? Yes, tonight, Dennis Leary. The ref. We'll be taking the losers throwing in the ocean for Bruce the shark aka John have you seen that one? No, all right. Have you haven't you haven't seen the referee guessing? No, okay. You haven't seen? Time I'll bring the screen walks the rest. All right, stew hours later. We all watched the replicas audience. Everyone laughed ten times more at that than they did the podcasts. Dennis leary. The ref is gonna throw it into the ocean for Bruce, shark, but. In a twist of events. A famous twist of events. Jason state them comes and kicks the rep into the ocean. In the Meg comes up any the ref and Bruce the shark at everything else too. How? You see the bag? The Meg it was on TV today. Okay. So so this is this is the fate that will await which one we eliminate right now. We'll down from three to one and say it in unison, which of these we feel like is the least deserving of being crowned champion. Wow. Three to one question. Wow. A split decision. Did you both sake? You I did throw it away. I do not like it. I voted Petito moss. Because I thought that you know, by had tonight was was a little better whether the taco, especially what do you have said about another? I'm just thinking about future stuff. You mean like your life in general? I saw myself as star child. Save it for the patriots. Here. Mitch sucking his thumbs Greg for twelve dollars do anything if you don't pay. I am going to start dressing up diapers. Walking around the house. Thank you should. I mean, nothing else was really worked. So far. I think this would be good to be a diaper. Boy. Yeah. Why not what a fun time? You and your cats diaper lake. I would sign up and do what watch me. Yeah. Or text be like just come over. See you live. I would enjoy it like a sexual just in a. That's my friend be very funny. You know what I'll do it? I will do it at some point. If I came over for a Doboy record. And you're on all fours in diaper with a pacifier in bonnet. I would not bat. Walk straight. I'm pretty sure you strip off to reveal. You are also. Finally, feel included. Let's talk about why Cuba got eliminated here with the menu items. We got from Cuba, we got and for the purposes of this. I'll say the say the rules right now this tournament tacos and breeders only sides stay on the sidelines. Drink Gatorade jug, also on the sidelines. One taco in one breed each chain. And for the finale, we all got the same order to go as one to one as possible. Trying to have as much of an even playing field as possible from Cuba. We each got the the gladiator taco this girl's making guy over lettuce. Mexican Caesar dressing salon throw in cotija cheese, and the Brita we got a chicken burrito, which is flour tortillas. Lonzo rice Pinto's caso salsa Verde and shredded lettuce as well as some re regular cheese. What did you guys dislike about the the burrito? And the taco that put it in your your bottom of the threes. I didn't like that case though. I thought it had no flavor. There was too much rice. I truly too much rice. I agree. Yeah. I bit into frowned. I saw it. I was I was there for it. I saw that happen to real big frown. Can I say what you said when you did it you bet and you go. Ooh, I do not like him. That is that's. Him seem weird until you said it. I think Mitch and I just used to hearing that. We both looked up nervously. I also thought this seasoning on the steak or steak steak steak animal over the bacon. Oh, I did. Not. Wow. And that is a problem that is should know when there's bacon in my mouth. Right. I got some. I I definitely got some bacon bits in mind. But it was I'd say a paltry amount. And I will say that. I like that taco taco was better than the bookie Tomas taco had to head by voted for it. The chicken brio agree had too much rice and the case. So yeah, I think just case will just doesn't travel well, which is which is a side issue. But it's a well-made burrito. I think just like a slightly better chip labor Reto. I am. Oh, I mean having had this in japodlay a few different times this month. I'll go Cuba. If I have the option Mitch, what did you think? I just I'm not trying to I'm not I'm not trying to do the thing where I do here. But I took a biting Rio I had a warm piece of lettuce. It's a mumber. So are not trying to point out that thing that you love or whatever. All right. Take it easy. You love hot lettuce close. That's like a thing. Heat up a salad. God, dammit. Really? You get a nice little Caesar salad Natalie opened the. This is a nightmare. There's a running thing that said that I like hot salad. I brought it up. I I think you said I like hot, Sal, there's that is not a quote, you cannot find that in the transcripts of the Doboy episodes that are up on the Doboy Zwick. I dare someone to find it. Somebody has no life, and they will. I don't remember the original context, but you've been bringing it up over and over again, and it's become a thing. Yeah. You don't have to. Yes. Yeah. I was and you did it again tonight. You put it in the fucking burrito. I didn't ask for a hot salad burrito. I asked where conventional breed through some lettuce in there, which is a normal burrito. Like ingredient Boletice is I don't think. So how many Ivy league so many burritos? I've let us in them. Get fucking lettuce out of there. I say that's a fair thing to say that's a fair position to have. I'm not going to fight you on that. But however, it is a conventional breed. There's this area. What you would fight me. I'm just looking for an excuse to take a swing. I don't know who would win. I feel like it would just end with you cuddling on the floor being like us. Oh, sorry. We got another patriotic here. I know I don't think I don't think I would want to hurt. Mitch. And I'd feel bad about it. Fuck I wouldn't want to hurt you physically. I'd feel bad. And so that I heard head Bundy. I don't think I want to hurt you that would scare me. Yes. You could hurt me. Like, you wouldn't feel bad about it? Oh, no. I don't wanna hurt you either saying saying you saying I don't think I would want to hurt. How about Mitch fine there? Yes, I'm sorry for letting Acer conditional. I don't wanna hurt you too bad about hurting. You wanna stump your fucking head? I have a boner. Doc. So that leaves to poquito moss. And taco once. I saw that you were getting harder. I'd be like, I keep punching you. Get into it on never mind. Nicole where do you stand on Mexican food in general? Are you a fan? Oh, I like it would would you put it?

And then I ate what a Jack Allison's many hotdogs, and I was burping it up for like seventeen hours. I need you to take care of your. I'm too much of a coward to do it myself on this competing, by way to death sees Christ. What that brings everyone down. Grimm thing say, well, it's the truth for God's sakes. Anyways. That's a good way to go. Yeah. What's wrong with that? Like if I stop performing. I like moved to newer Red Lobster float around in my pool in each obey bay, biscuits and die. Wow. I think that's the closest you may ever get to it. Right. When people like, whatever you float around pool you eat all day. I'll do that here. I'll cut out the cut out the end parl just do it on earth. So it's like Nick cage and Leaving Las Vegas only instead of booze. It's like apps like you're just having all this Hebei's. Yeah. I've never seen it. It's good. I would put that one for a little further down your, okay, it's not a fun watch. It's depressing. So I watch the ref. I watch the raft before. Then I got real. I shouldn't care. What you why? You gotta watch. Whatever you wanna watch. Okay. Why what's your number one choice number one movie number one movie of all time? Yeah. Oh my God. What a thing to ask me on the spot. I don't know. Ghost? Ghost is great. I love goes straight him watch it all the time. Well, what's your favorite movie? My favorite is goodfellas is my favorite movie, fellas. Harry good. Hey, I for Nick. Because I relate to the robot. Is that what you're saying? Little boys actually thousand years old. These old out of date mecca. That's what you're going to. Yes. No, not really. I was saying that you were trying to argue the locations of being a legal. Oh, Jesus Christ. That's our friend. The show. He's friendly. He's going to be freaked out next time he comes with you. Here's how you set your favorite movie. You word out on the Jess. A is great. But favorite movie of all time. God fuck that's that's a hard top three. Can I say the wall say? Train to train coming at. Scares the hell out of me every time he gets up and runs out of this theater shoots. Like one of the first one of the first movies is a train coming ask and audience got up in. Similar to how this show will go. I got I don't know I'm tempted to say I'm just going to say something Toy Story two. Okay. I like Toy Story. I do like it. I like it. You're trying to be negative. No, I'm not I'm not I know here hero. Come on. Did you did you lose out a lot of work because I know you're normally his stunned. Does not make sense. He's not on camera. Stalwart? Yeah. I don't know. I like, the it's about friendship. It's about friendship. It's like, it's like that movies about friendship. I get to be. And I also like because I like there's a lot of family in about love and stuff, but friendship is a very important relationship, especially as an adult, and I feel like it's not touched on as much. So like the show friends. They're friends. You have no adult friends. You don't hang out with anyone thought it was sitting up here with two of them. What? Oh, what is the last time you with not only, Nicole? But. Outside of a work environment. That's a good question. The man you see every week. Yeah. That's why we don't need to hang out. We see each other frequently. Yeah. Hang out with me. I'll your salad. I know you love case D is how do you feel about the big the big question today? Tacos versus burrito. We're just gonna hang out with me. Will talk. Of course, I will. I I like the hot salad Jogos moving on. What is that soft voice? You were just sorta. So let me get this straight. It's bad. If I don't modulate my voice, it's bad. If I do modulate, my voice just tell me what I should do. Don't think about modulator ever. No, listen, I liked it your lake reverse. Elizabeth homing yourself. Really like you're coming to my level. I like it here. For it. I love her. She's great. We all agree. It was unfair. What happened? Team homes. Tacos versus Britos where do you stand? I like taco because you could get three different kinds and have great time burrito. You're kind of just like married to your very heavy choice. Yeah. You're locked in. It's a strong argument. I'm a taco guy. I don't have a problem with the Brita fans. I think we can live in harmony, I do think that I your argument is very very compelling. It's maybe the winner because just like portion size. You can have more kinds of tacos. And at when I'm like, hey, you put the chicken in this spot and the stake in that spot and the pork in that spot. They look at me like, I'm the fattest woman in America. But I'm like, I just want, you know, different kinds of bites. Right. And then it doesn't ever work out. Wait. So in an individual taco in a burrito in a blogging by rito asked him where I tell them where I want my meat. Yeah. Do it in life too. I don't need to. I I don't need all these. I don't need all these. Why are you so agitated I'm not I'm not a swinger baby. I just need my one. Look breeders are so money, and they don't even know it. I just need my one burrito. One burrito, man. I don't need to swing around with the tacos. You like tacos do like tacos? But I'm not I'm not I don't I don't need to have. If you got a burrito. And you got a good bite. You stay with the good bite. You're not worried about committing. That's what you're saying. No, I commit to the one. I just commit to the one message for future. Mrs Mitchell out there. Mrs mitchell. Nato surnames. Yeah. Shit. How do you like how do you like spicy food? You someone who goes with spicy yourself spice you like spicy nice. I love some heat. A lot of feel something right? Yeah. I've admit you've got you backed off on the spicy up to point this out. I I'm not trying to step to shame you or anything like a part of aging, but people have. People have issues they can't digest things in the same way. Yes. Me too, spicy food. Thankfully as someone who identifies. Something Pete Seeger. I. I I like it retell dysfunctions normal. I can still Faulk that you can't. I'm not saying that I have certain foods. I don't respond to as well anymore. But I think we can still enjoy that. Because it would be hard for me if I couldn't but lost my spice. I. Do it anymore. Can you do dairy? No can't do. I can't do much of anything. I do have a wreck. South. What? Couldn't see as Mitch wiggling that Mike Santa after a wreck tile dysfunction as if he was envious of this hard, Mike, San. Tiles? He's NBS in both hardness and girth. It's not bad. Couldn't just any year of my life. Be good. Just one year a stretch of three hundred and sixty five days where I'm like that was great. Let me say something you are wearing New England Patriots gear had not had to tell. But you're wearing a waste put myself into this. Because that's better. That's what I'm saying. Is like you as as a as a pats die hard because when the when the Super Bowl, isn't that great? Isn't that bring your joy does it the Super Bowl bring enjoy the rest of the year? I woke up about a smile on my face today because at the Super Bowl. I think next year will be good for you. Yeah. Twenty twenty is your year. Oh, you're giving up on twenty nine in. Do you blame me a child will be conceived and then borne before you start here? Here. Maybe one after the show tonight. Right everybody. Let's talk about everyone. If you take a plan b Bill the if you have sex that I don't give birth to that fucking demon child. Take a plan b. Let's talk about bookie Tomas and Taco Bell. So from beginning moss. We kept it simple. We got a classic taco. This is a we went. We went beef with the protein for the taco and chicken with protein for the so the classic taco is is steak fresh corn tortilla fresh salsa, which is more which is a PICO to go by default. And they give you some other sources on the side. The burrito we got was a chicken, flour tortilla. They grill it up crispy, which is which is a delight fresh salsa melted. Jack cheese, fresh Kwok inside, Nicole. Are you frequent Petito eater? Have you had that chain before I have not? And I took some no I wrote bookie Tomas. What are nice chicken burrito, yum, yum? Then I read steak talk. Oh, not enough seasoning. But I liked the taco but not as much as that breed. That was very nice for Rita. Every bite had a trait. I was here for that. Brita not the taco, I agree with delightful burrito with the the cheeses in there in a they throw a lot of it in there and it melts in there. Just just delicious the taco, I feel like that corn tortilla needs a friend needs another one underneath Ed. And I agree with you on the seasoning. Those tacos are built to have to throw your own sauce over in the salsa barring throw your own cilantro and raw onions on there. If you like, but if you have it without those elements, it is a little on the plane side, the I think they could season they're their protein a little bit more. Mitch, what did you think of those that book, you know, moss? We had tonight. It was it traveled a little bit. And it was still good. I like I like I've said this before I the protein is on display here. Yes. Much like me later with Dave Thomas Cup when I'm filling up with my Jack Hewlett all right confirmed. Jack confirmed that you're gonna Jack up the daytime come. That one load for. Oh my God. Awful imagery. Thing. You came up with it. You're free gross. I think that the I think the proteins get I get how just the taco that. It's it's maybe not enough going on for people. But I think it's really quality ingredients it they have great stuff there. I feel like the little hamstrung in the in this tournament because they're tacos are maybe a weak spot on their menu. That's just I'm just again, just Taco Bell. We got. So I think we might have gotten some different Britos Mitch because you're quite insistent on not getting a chicken burrito for yourself at Taco Bell. Yeah. We did get chicken, bro. You did. Okay. 'cause I thought you I thought you throw a fit about that. Look I did. I did there and you'll all agree with me. Why does some things before the tournaments before tonight just in this afternoon? One cheesy crunches weren't allowed insane. I off the bat I did not make that ruling I deferred to the Commissioner even paying attention to the damn tournament this year. He didn't know what was happening. We got to cheesy Gordy crunch type things from from Cadeau and del taco. Yeah. But they didn't have flat bread. I it's a little different second of all your decision to to get chicken burritos from each place is a disadvantage to Taco Bell than anyone else. Agree. Yeah. That's not their main thing. But isn't that part of this? What we're doing here? Like, it's not about getting the very best of the best from each chain. It's finding out how they're able to execute. These these Staples. Right. Isn't that what we're trying to? No. What are we Joe some weird protein from buck and Petito moss? Then they'd have to make sure that they could overcome that. It's like anything we like this is this close to this is close to. I think a player fade. It should have been chose your own protein. That's what it should have been. But we know what you wanna chose. No. He's christ. What it's the truth. Angry. You are. I'll. I'm not mad. I'm happy. Just think about this Super Bowl. There. It is again. I just look I just I thought that they were better off. But I wanna law. Did I did I got three? I got a snake rattles? Got us rattlesnake steak burrito for myself to which I had half. So you got a bonus burrito. Bonus burrito. Do that shit. This is a shredded chicken season rights avacado ranch dressing and real cheddar cheese is what's the menu description which and that was pretty good. It was good. I think it's a good like standard small small breed. I don't know. What nicole? What did you think of that bad? Boy liked it. I didn't hate it out of the three. I thought it was the weakest didn't find it. Yeah. I think I'd agree with you. I think that's that's a spot on a segment, and it's what do you think? I didn't think it was. We thought Cuba was the weakest rancher asked I truly I liked the shredded chicken. But I thought the Kito burrito was better than the strategy breed. I'll say that. And and then I got three cheesy Gordon crunches. Yes. So this is a and to taco Supremes in case Nick did a wanna eat the fuck, and she's a crowd, I ate them item. Both. So this one ended up talking ended up having an advantage at a third tongue a third item in it. So this is all rigged it. So the Taco Bell. Added advantage. You didn't have to eat that. But but he did it was in front of both. No, I only had the easy to crown. They called a Jeep both. I think so I ate so much. Should we judge? I guess you had to burritos. I guess it's fine. If we had tacos, are you gonna judges around saying, what are you going to judge it on the chicken burrito? Okay. All right. I will I will say I will judge it on the cheese or a crutch because that's a real. And it's been made how the country tacos supreme is great and very good. I would I would I would always do the the fuck in. The three does locos fuck and shell instead just because I like that Doritos powder. But this is just what the default shell still great to crunch. I mean, it's it's a stellar menu item. It's really really good. It's just it's just a life all Nicole is gotten before. Yes. What do you think of this one? I think it's fucking love Taco Bell Taco Bell is just a lovely classic. You know, you're in your lift you say, I don't go home. And then they go where do you wanna go talk? Oh bell. And then you're like, put our home. And then you order to light full food. I love Taco Bell. I also love the lift driver. The lift driver guests Taco Bell. I wanna go taco. He knew mmediately. Well, let's before we get to our judgement. Let's taste tester. This Susser Frank. Fuck. I really don't wanna eat bugs flying around it. It's been sitting. It's been sitting here for a while. Oh, Jesus Christ. What happened? What exploded out what the fuck? Okay. So we've got these weird lead. These weirdly made Reito's and tacos, stab some pictures of these. We're doing this. Sometimes I really think you're trying to kill me. This. It's nicole. You don't have to eat this. I'm gonna say that right now. This is I leave this up to your discretion. And I'm going to take a bite. Oh, yeah. I mean. I'm starting. I'm starting with this this Wendy's, spicy chicken taco. I guess is what it is. She's. Off. The mayo is fucking hanging out. I don't even like looking at. And it's it's so colder than room Tam sitting under an ACO. That's not bad. Yeah. I think it's gonna win the Turkey. I think this is. This is good. Oh boy. All right. Let's try this burrito. That was good. Yeah. Now, I'm excited. Genius. I mean this burritos not wrapped. Well, no, it's it's just a tortilla folded around at loosely no attempt at a rapping, I'm grabbing one for myself. This is into. This is. So it's good. It's good. Got in and out fries in there. So it's going to Cal. As well as. These are good that burritos. Good. Yeah. That's a good aspirated. Oh, I'm so happy. Buck. I don't know what to say we we can't give these the Vuk and war, right? Honestly, I think we should they we're really delightful. They were good. We'll look let's do this out should make a burrito. Fucking delicious. Yeah. Absolutely. I mean, it's just taking a in both cases it's taken a good protein. And then putting in a tortilla instead of a bun, of course, it works. When you when you think about it? But what was that golden? Okay. Hey, how about that? These do they get the, golden whistle. What what does that man? No, your podcast more than you. I don't listen to this podcast. Why would I do that? Yeah. Golden whistle. We'd been giving for best chips and salsa. But maybe that's a compromise position. We can award it to such as creations here. Golden whistle. And then that's it. Yeah. They get the golden whistle fine. It gets the golden west the golden whistles now gone. Let's so let's let's sheet over me mind. Let's judge them. I mean their chips. Theirselves options are just getting chips for solid. Let's so let's get to our judgments of Taco Bell and bookie Tomas. So Mitch do you wanna talk through our system here for Nicole? Yes. Okay. Oh god. No. I don't really want you. Okay. I'll talk through it. So we are honoring says much madness as a tribute to March madness, we are honoring a key element who's often unacknowledged in the March madness basketball tournaments the refs and the way. So the way we are using rafts as our metric for judging tacos and Britos tacos get zero to five white stripes and Britos gets five black stripes. If you get ten stripes. That's a full shirt on is yet to achieve. There was a golden whistle for best salsa and chips by the now, it's gone to these monstrosity. So soap Akito midst. You wanna maybe go first to just sort of a to to lead the way with the with your judgment of how these are getting stripes. Okay. All right. All right. Let's break it down for Petito. I I'm gonna go. I really liked. I really liked the protein in the in the in the taco, I'm gonna go three and a half, white stripes three and a half. It's it just it's lacking. Something you always know this about it. It's it's it's good to just mix up. When you get a chicken burrito. You get a steak taco if you get a steak burrito. You're gonna chicken talk. Right. Anything like that? It's good to get a different bites that you were talking about. Yes. I'm not mad everyone that you are talking about. I'm not bad. God. Oh, I hit my Teesta. My teeth. I hit my teeth on the. Oh, don't worry twenty twenty baby. This is happened before she mistake the Mike for a big lollipop. When you wear your diapers and hang out with our cats. You should also be looking Lally. The Muller probe meant nothing. Gronk retired. Rough day. Anyway, Beato gets five black stripes. The burrito I said it multiple times. It's just one of the best burritos there is should have been tournament. Maybe not. Yeah. It's tough. It's tough. But it's it it does a really good job. There's there's also amazing. It's a really really quality place is up and down a lot of time the qual- like you can get a bad Kito story, but can't you anywhere. And then. Taco Bell five white stripes for the cheesy Gordy dacron. That's one of the best fast food. It's one of the best items. There is it's amazing. And then for the strategy chicken burrito, man. I'm gonna go three point seven five. Black stripes. Still get score not happy about this. There's better burritos at Taco Bell. Right. But that's a good showing from one that you thought was maybe subpar. Yeah. It's good. It was good. It was getting good quality burrito. Nicole your thoughts your judgement on some Taco Bell he'd mice. That burrito. Was a real delay? I think I give it five stripes that. Yeah, I really enjoyed it. I think I said I like him. She did she did. She after she said, I don't like him too, the Cobra. And then she said I like him after what it's true, Mitch Mitch. And I both looked over at you saw. Be. And then I think I'd give that taco two stripes. I Wiley it was not for me. I did not like him. And then talk about the data crunch show. I give if I've stride. It made me so happy. Then the burrito. I think I give it three stripe. Speaking of it's it's it's a solid burrito. I wasn't like Gaga for right, but solid. Yeah. Absolutely. A fair assessment there. I will say Kito moss that taco I'm with you two white stripes. It's just like the it's it's like you said these were students it's under seasoned. And I just feel like it needs another tortilla. And they're just the one tortilla gets mushy in doesn't stand up to the moisture the burrito, I'm gonna go. I'm not quite as favorable on it. I thought I thought it was it was great. But I'm not gonna go all the way to five. I'm going to say four and a half. Excuse me, stripes, black stripes, the classic Brita there the Taco Bell. I will say the shredded chicken burrito. Performed better than I expected. I'm also going to give this I'm gonna no, you know, what I'm gonna say three and a quarter, black stripes. Little a little better than average. I would still get a cheeseburger over it which for me is the metric, but the bean-and-cheese breed. I would say is four so three and a quarter. Nothing to sneeze at the criteria. Five white, stripes and kidding. It's great. It's great. It's a home run. What about the tacos supreme? I'd still get the tacos supreme like like four because I I think the I think the one with the rita's loco shell it's five, and I think the one with the conventional shell this four because it's just great sour cream. Does a lot of. All right. Well, so those are Cessna. We have given our stripes. The tournament is ended. None of these chains have have earned a full shirt. But dang one of these will be the winner. Dang. It's time to crown a champion. But for a decision of this magnitude, we can't make it alone. No. So please welcome much madness. Trifle council. That's right walking to stage every month madness. Twenty nineteen. Yes. Your hair looks fabulous. What? On a tree and Susser for some reason. Tony charlene.

Can you imagine because my family was like a healthy family? Right. So wasn't allowed very much of an I think that just kind of carried over except for like the college years, but as of late I haven't actively gone I saw food Inc. Fifteen years ago, then forever was scared away. Hungary that. She's never been to a del taco. That's why our she lives a right by. Really? We just went out to dinner and ordered six different dish.

And I'm going to be. Matt like me, a fellow creature of the Southland spent his life in southern California. How do you feel about these two combatants that remain? Well, you know, I can't say that I've had peaky Tomas. Maybe at all. I don't think I've ever had it. I know not how did never got us here. I don't think I've ever had. I have a college degree.

I am I missing. I'm not a fan of green like this is of the donut ideas the dumbest one 'cause why would you want uncooked better in a donut right uncooked cake in a cape it in batter in blizzards in stuff but it's not in like a molten lava cake is unclear though or new prefer kicked on us or raised over. Let's I would prefer a right and cake batter <hes> in a caked on it is just an uncooked donut. It's crispy cream cake. I know but also I hate a Brownie that had brownie batter in it Brownie Battlefield Brownie yeah however that even work I mean that's not my problem. Whoever I like crispy cream is doing it any way you would make this works in like it shouldn't work <hes> yeah? I'm scared of that the incident somebody's already mentioning Burger King tackle we can bring that is our next news item because we're GONNA be eating it through a straight into it. We'll we'll pause we'll get there. We'll get the news item for me that came up when it was not that it came out but the whole look you're saying in the chat right now. The tacos look good on T._v.. They do good. That's what I find T._V.. Look good on T._v.. Ended I have a lot of TACO sauce but look we'll come. We'll get there so yeah. We'll we have not open these up yet. We don't know we'll slow. We're all finding out together so news. There's Oriole News. Yes I'm excited I am well. I mean because this new or is a new oreo is buttered popcorn Oria. Yeah we had kettle corn which this this makes me wonder. Would you eat a probably a reference a butter flavored oreo yeah in order to fill out and might mutter. I I had dude fried butter at the state asset you just stick of butter. That's true yeah so yes I would enjoy my not. I mean sputter yeah butter popcorn corn though someone asked me if I would eat a glitter up obliterate of butter blizzard and I was like at I think that's just frozen custard. Maybe maybe yeah so hopefully we will have those next week. We just heard about those not able define them for this week but we knew they were having but they apparently hitting stores but not yet made it to the mid West. Yes what we were talking about ice cream though too I have I news there has been well under say that there's a man Dan not me who bought a gallon of ice cream and I think it was maybe a gas station or a convenience store and he went up and the guy the cashier said Wilkie by another one. There's a sale so he went back and he thought as he had this <music> a gallon that he was hit already bought he thought I wanNa do something funny so I don't know if he went live on facebook or if the or if he made a video and upload on facebook but he he opened up the gallon an ice cream and started licking it and put his fingers in it and made it looked like he was putting it back so he upload this just for a laugh he'd paid for it. He wasn't trying to do anything dumb but he he upload this what happened it went viral and the Internet outrage ensued no copy catching what I spur style was one of the copycats snake arrest people are getting a right over the opened up the lid of ice cream lick. It put the bag stuck it back in the freezer in uh-huh. Have you ever seen video. I should be careful of this like have you ever seen a food video but two cups and then been like I really WanNa do this challenge and that I did this the challenge <hes> yet so like this this challenge it like one woman spit in it and <unk> look it up and <hes> yeah it's what's wrong with. What's the news no that's why you may have seen pictures on the Internet this week of locks on the cases ice cream yeah the freezer that say see cashier for assistance because so these fools who are opening up gallons of ice cream licking them putting them back let no good practical joke though on the kind of ice cream that has not only under the lead but like pretty much is there? Really any food that doesn't come in like a tamper evident packaging ice cream some of it you just it's just a carton that you open. There's no plastic seal over some of the brands I guess now so and not allowed to saved from US anyway. We want to get at it. Yes so I'll we also need to mention last week. If you accept so it'd be intern Ben here yeah and that was so nice they haven't here and after the show aw Danny Knight took him out to a buffet and he got a salad so there's no longer than we are. We are back. We're looking for an intern. If you want to like fetch things more banting yes watch it. He was basically see you at the buffet can was like ask me. I'm showing him like these are the deserts over here and he's like I'm GonNa get Sal Ryan. I Yeah I will say this and and this is not an intern Benz Defense Lewis's actually like on your side I took him to Bachan on and he didn't even go and look at the meats he was like. I live in Kansas City. We have plenty of smoke needs. They're not like the high price <music> so many different kinds of things in Vegas. I get me smoke. I can get meets at home. How I'M GONNA get the N._F._l.? Canal let's now as for that is so look out for your ice cream everyone. That's what we're saying this week more news or should the GO-TO experiences not having recovered my experience to to all right. I think we're ready to dive in. These tacos are not getting any day are not these are fresh from Burger. King Burger King has dollar tackle addictive so you're kind of like it already snowing. I know I take him out of the bag and all like they've they smell good. They are clearly labeled Tacos and they're what I expected after binding know how about them okay banana chance that don't have one daughter. She's being the dog for not having fun right now. That's that's like yeah. We'll post pictures on social media as well. I need to take pictures. Yes let me take fiction business. Is I mean it's a dollar but still it's Kinda sad now. I have a question TACO. John's is a dollar when you have tacos days July shower Joe Pacos pens. I would probably prefer soft-shell me too. I like crispy with beef in soft-shell the chicken ally now me like when I think of a crispy Shell Taco I think of the like elementary school horrors when I think of like a soft shell I think of something delicious heart shot to keep from cracking so easily or getting soggy thrown. If someone put the cheese on the bottom end of it makes sense now people are saying these put the S._O._S. and gastrointestinal disorder so I've I been hearing that so like you know we're GONNA WE'RE GONNA keep classy here as there's lettuce in here not a mine and now what you could customize easies where the only options just lettuce and cheese and that's it so I'll put it back with this literally all the lead at I'm not so I had bought <hes> you do have the <unk> Burrito when that was out. I do not not listen. This is Dan within price but tastes better than expected. The shuttle is not bad yeah. No it's actually like Taco meat. Where's the <unk> Burrito was basically <unk>? PATTIES chopped up with all the walker ingredients rolled into a Tortilla. Shell a little bit of like attack it was there. There's not a lot of labor if you like a Taco with seasoning and flavor. You're not gonNA like these. If you're mean you'll feel probably enjoy it because it just like me as you think to yourself. I WANNA tackle that only costs a dollar dollar taste like from a fast-food place. You know what I'm actually. I didn't expect I'm going to recommend these dollar. I think Mexican finish it that I gotta take another picture finish it because I didn't have dinner. We'll just say it doesn't taste like anything but like refried beans and a little bit of their no beans in county better than enough but I'm saying it tastes like refried the answer. That's how like we're the beef is but if anything happens here and we need to excuse ourselves. Let's just saying excuse me I have to go cough from or something I dunno indoor on the chat asked how they compared Taco Bell will good news and bad news for you. We don't have Taco Bell Tacos to compare them to but we do have <hes> we have some Taco bell flavored sunflower seeds that we can compare them to not gonNA Taco flavored potato chips it compare them to. We don't have Jack in the box here so we can't compare them to well. I can't at least you've been to Bosnia. I'M GONNA say the meat here. It is the texture of refried beans. WHOA you're saying that Taco John's Taco bell both have like it's like meet that you will never go? That's that's the difficult term I was looking for ground beef. This meets line. Let on extended Neat Mush. I don't know they did that meets line. If you want good Taco from a restaurant don't get this. If you WANNA fast food TACO getting all your friends want to go to Burger King and you really don't WanNa Burger. It's a book I have to tell you. If you want go to Burger working really don't want a burger if French fries no but please get the APP everyone. I don't eat at Burger King a lot but I was like I'm going there anyway so I got the Mozzarella sticks which are so good and I got Mozzarella sticks but only brought us. macos even if I bought something would not have made it. They're that good. It's been ages but pam when I had them later. Yeah they're really good. Anna had a fifty nine hundred cheeseburger too so so yes so yes. The meat is like case. I'm gonNA open up the smell as smelters. These are new for the summer. Leys has the we I think we had tackled from some other brands but these are crispy Taco flavored potato chips so bs look at the Colorado voter king better than we thought let's see they smell like a Taco. That's like the color of tackle with being a potato chip. They kind of like I can taste. I hate to say this but I can taste more distinct ingredients in the chip than in the Taco Bell after this I can get the tomato because there's only has lettuce cheese cheese and sauce in in the Amer game. Yeah the chip. I'm sure has way more flavors way better than this is what you gotTa do you gotTa Open Up. The TACO. Put some chips in it now that shooting 'cause you're like now. My TACO NOCCO tastes like a Taco because you've added Taco powder. You call it cheating cycle life. Hacking these are pretty damn good. <hes> I Mike I like I said I don't like the crispy Shell Tacos but these as more like crispy Shell Taco yeah like that I remember from my school days than the Burger King fees and I'll say the Burger King Taco is a little soggy but I did bring that from Burger King to here missile at Miami but to do what he had set up everything so to sit but the other chips definitely putting in the TACO crispier these. I think that's the intent I know we make face it all yeah. Can I saw AH camping out and Fed a side note last week. <hes> we played F._M.. Cave with the chips and leave all read we want to marry the Fried Egg Gypsum Danny United side right away like all the time yeah divorce <hes> yeah you know it was like the hangover where you wake up and you're like wait. What did you finish them? No he's still have W got divorced. It's a moment like the leftovers are knowing them. They're still sitting and what his seconds of because they're about their semi go for the books yeah. Let's let's go to the sunflowers. He's now. We don't quite know how we're going to eat season split them out so was at least come from biggs and every bag only a week. I'm sorry I just realized these are Taco Bell. Yes Taco bell topless debris right so we'll start with those within we also so have ranch grinds favorite bacon salt not making big insult and what's interesting is on the back. They all say do flavor Bayer Huge Seeds Double Wolf Labor in collaboration with this one is Jay Bacon lizards this one it's him bound says on the back the original ranch experts and what does the next things that they said about Taco Bell Taco del Taco Bell Taco geniuses geniuses saying she was going to as some of the fried egg ships. I know she saw some this last week. I mean that would have been a little awkward when you had an annulment. You still have engagement party afterwards. The Chad Heather asks if I'm being a little too foods lobby. I don't know what that means. He yes yes. He owns a blanket answer. Yeah never compliment on a hair at just touched up jato lease in Bacon Salt Salt like Bacon is salty that absolutely running. Let's talk about fake insult in shock about these Taco seaver now the flow of them young caught a flaw <hes> is that the seeds are in shells else but their season so it's really only shell right just like when it salted. The seat doesn't salted the shell. Some people eat the shells you know they were just once like not not because it's GONNA scratch. You don't want to be scratched. Those people are called Specialty laboon extra fiber. I mean you can eat glass. If you chew enough you but you shouldn't my grandma's eight cores of apples right might indices there right my great grandmother would choose fresh Schoff. The boat was like I don't understand what the big deals about bananas and then someone tottered appeal and she was like all these things are delicious but she didn't keep eating appeal appeal up in their shoes from Turkey she had never seen a banana hannah-beth four years at a fruit stand on the lower east side of New York back in like the bike early part of the twentieth century. lets her right and so she let people like you gotta welcome to America you gotta try. This thing called the banana good to go. I don't know what the big deal is. What are we thinking about? The flavor of these does not really tackle. It's reminiscent. It's Yuck to suck on the seed. I ev even eaten a whole state of course just like grandma in fact amy. I'm GonNa tell you this on the bag. I'm not even kidding it. Has it says eating instructions crack open shells discarded shells enjoy seat also your math mall so underneath that it's a sunflowers either never recommended for infants or toddlers as guilty choking the threat Leo talk about the flavoring the seats themselves don't have flavor. No you suck on the show which means you don't crack open the shelf. I I think it tastes. It's like like the chip which the Taco not get more sunflower seed than tackle flavor. No sure I mean there's a simpler mostly tackle flavor versus chip. It tastes like you know when you're making taxes and you have some of the only dental little bit of the sauce on it. That's kind of good taste. I think it tastes more like attractive Burger King Taco really neither. I don't not even allowed him like them. Sometimes yes so I don't know and people enjoy the flavor flavored sunflower seeds. I mean salted is find. Do you want to move on from Taco to actually. Can we do the big next. I WANNA put those off. Maybe we'll forget about them. The ranch forget about might know things happen. I'm here all right because the bacon this this could be good. Maybe as a defender of ranch so she's going to have those ranch dressing. But what is your favorite dressing. It's a good question Danny. It depends on the type of salad. It's an Irby or soft lettuce salad at prefer vinaigrette. I'd make pineapple us <hes> on blanking on it now vinaigrette with a Harissa penpal even a back Bay Vinaigrette while you've been talking about dressings. I've been sucking on the seeds. I don't taste any vacant. I get. It's Saltier was gonna like the Taco Bell Taco Bell Saves. You didn't ask my favorite regressing is a condiment. I know better and unlike a hardier salad. My answer was just going to be cool like with iceberg lettuce or the other one. Everybody likes Romaine. Yes thank you add like a thicker sturdier dozen but do you like these bacon. Ships are making the Bay concedes. I want see three can put in the ground baking grows all right. I mean this makes me really want. You know what that's the big consult. I have a picture of this onion. Yeah that's the Bacon salt breaking. These were all like they paid a lot in blanketing now Dan did you see bill typical ones and just <hes> tax by the okay. Actually I'll just smell like hold on after thinking about it I believe I may have you Bryant it yeah in fact <hes> I was in the store today looking for the buttered popcorn orioles and I saw the pop tart cereal yeah I Bryan to that as well. The ad I mean cereals difficult for us to do anyway also pop tart flavors. Okay Brian Okay okay. Can you tell me the grants. Do you get good ranch dressing with a lot of salt in it the ranch Oh yeah it it just tastes like the sunflower seeds Ranson people that like ranch in anything a good is houses a good homemade ramps doesn't there some of the ranch labor finally mowing have these we've had three different kinds of seeds but three different taste like Tacos we could play F._M.. K with the seeds or we could play F._M.. K with the tacos. Let's go with the tackle things because the scenes I feel like don't the flavor isn't punching me in the mouth so I don't really have strong opinions things on the right. Where's the talk of the gut yeah before we move onto that starting over in Arizona's saying they need to leave Orioles alone? They have come up with a lot of Orient and I would say okay to appoint too many. I still enjoy that they are trying new things. I have a question have you had you know when I was a kid a long time ago. They had a little plastic thing with the cracker amendment all like little red plastic spreader. You can spread the cheese crackers. They make that in Oreo. where's the chocolate cooking? It isn't credible green. Would you try that of course. Should we have out on the cloud yeah my not. I was looking that allows like what kind of deal is this. I don't think it would be nearly as good because then part of me was like what if that is a little <hes> like cube of actual oreo cream Komo and then it was like that would be so amazing <hes>. I don't want to know that that exists yeah. It was like this hour's vinyl time like one of two things would happen. It'd be super disappointed or I would just start Downing Oreo cream at data at a rate. That's just even for me on health. Dare burs things in this world but this is what I would say to anyone who does not think they should do. Oreos my only question would be I had yet had this Morio because if if you have and you're still like no okay package of SM Orioles into more disliked it out yeah. Did you like give them a raise. I don't know who it was but I ate like a disproportionate amount yeah you did. I uh I may or may not have rerouted the way I walked past. I don't drink. I know that drink are right now. We were going to F._M.. K. FROLIC with Mary Kill Taco flavored things what one of being an actual attack yes the TACO king the Taegu chips and the Taco flavored sunflower seeds and almost of peanut butter Oreo is need a minute heather.

I'm Reese, and I'm Laurin vocal bomb end today or talking about tacos. I am so excited to talk about Docker and this one goes out to Macy Hilo Macy, a nine year old listener who wrote a letter pointing out the facts that we ridiculously have not than an episode on tacos. Should you a picture of a taco with an arrow SIS? It's a taco to make sure we got the point we did point received this. So thank you may and here you go. Yes. And all other listeners out there if you want us to do a topic really badly apparently just drying than arrow. This is this, and we'll be okay. Got it. And I love tacos. So it didn't take much persuading. Oh, no, no. And actually, it reminded me of when we were in Austin. And like when we first arrived, I was like forget, whatever you're about to do. Does it matter we're going to lunch? We're going to torture. Oh, torchy's. It was near it was we had a Torchy's within walking distance. And for those of you who have not hung out in Texas. It's a local chain on the taco chain and they have a secret menu and everything there is incredibly delicious. Yes. And it was wonderful. And Obama arrived almost immediately after we left that same Torchy's. Yeah. Goodness. We were that close. I'm close. Yeah. Torchy's gosh, why are you not in my face? Right now, free sociation times taco is a hominem for a Japanese word for octopus. And that means that means that there were some really funny mistranslations, or possibly joke translations that happened. Back in the days when most English subtitling of, of Japanese anime was done in distributed by fans. I bet there was, it was pretty great free. Cessation timesheets would be a recurring segment. Oh, yes. Yes, I think that is about just our whole show. New title, idea, anyway, brings us talk question. Tacos. What are they? Well tacos can be a lot of things. But essentially, you're talking about a hand-held rap or more precisely like a fold over consisting of various, proteins, vegetables, and dressings contained by an outer layer of thin cooked circle. Shaped dough that the keeps your, your paws relatively unnecessary relatively relatively depends on how how delicate you are. Yeah. I would not call either of us. No, no, no, no, no. And traditionally that outer layer is a tortilla, which is traditionally, a round unleavened flat bread made of corn Massa, which is a DOE made with a ground up field corn, that's been treated with an Alkali to, to loosen the hull and make it easier to grind. And also make it sticky and more digestible and it this is how you make hominy the treatment process is called a nationalization after a not who Waddell word for comedy, and you can hear all about that in our tamales episode. Yes. Outside of Central America. Wheat flour tortillas are the ones you're more likely to find or or taco dodos, which are golden tacos, which are according tortillas pre shaped into a shell like a U-shaped shell and fried. So they stiffen up give you a good crunch that used to be my preference. Like, and I was the odd one out of my group. Yeah. I always wanted the hard taco. But since moving twit Lanta. No. I've moved onto soft talk. I don't know why this is giving me much pause for thought. I have I have particular crate, most of the time, I want to a soft corn tortilla. But but very occasionally I'm like a want a want that Friday thing. I liked the crunchy crunch, especially with, like still like a total garbage, North American talk with, like ground beef and cheese and lettuce. Yeah. Good. It is. The word taco most likely comes from the Nahuatl word to lock oh, which translates to half or in the middle. Or maybe it comes from ach from the same language meaning flats, or maybe it comes from the Spanish word taco for plug and we'll get into why that might be a little bit later in the history section. Nutrition wise. You know, it's going to vary just as widely, as your tortilla and filling choices can vary a corner flour tortilla. That's grilled instead of fried and filled with a grilled or roasted ingredients, and maybe even of edge terrible. That's, that's a sustaining nutritious snack a few make a meal fried shell fried, fillings, lots of cheese, super fatty, or highly salted fillings. That's, that's in the treat category, I would say, yeah, yeah. Some American fast food chains that offer tacos like Taco Bell have come under fire for their particularly egregious use of fats insults. Like even compared with other fast food chains. That is that sounds something issues. Sure. And I wanted to put into here have y'all seen those, those bus room based like partial meat, substitute products are recipes like a like ground mushrooms, mixed in with ground beef for, for a healthier or more environmentally chill alternative to distract ground beef grumpy for tacos is one of those things that some researchers and the US mushroom council are suggesting would benefit from this application in terms of reducing fat, and sodium content without reducing the consumer's experience. One study, even found the test subjects preferred the lower sodium, forty five percent mushroom taco. Sponsored by the buzzer council. If we look at numbers in the US, we eat an annual four point five billion billion billion Taco's an annual four point five billion taco seasoning, Taco Bell cheese taco kits taco shells though. Those shells with the flat bottom, they don't while over those tacos. Stands in case you don't want the ones with the flat bottoms, and you can put them in the I love I get really excited when I go to a restaurant, and I see that they have taco stands for some reason, it makes me super happy, this kind of specialized devices. Yeah. They bring me choice. Well, taco tricks taco Tuesdays, we will be talking about that later Korean tacos, all sorts of tacos. And we do have some specifically Taco Bell numbers. Yeah. And unfortunately I say, unfortunately. No, I agree taco. Bell was voted America's favorite Mexican restaurant? Much apologies Mexican. Yeah. We would like to personally apologize on behalf of our country. I do have some friends who fricken love it. I don't think they would say it's their favorite Mexican restaurant though. I hope not. But anyway, taco bells. They're two billion a year. And just recently, there was a story of that dude that survived on Taco Bell. Hot sauce packets strapped in his car with his dog. Oh, right now he gets free taco Bill for life. I think correctly. Okay. And I for some reason, I remembered the Diane with Godzilla. I have no idea what that is. Yeah. Perfect. You remember how could you forget the nineteen ninety eight Godzilla Matthew Broderick? Still haven't seen that film. Oh, the soundtrack has P on it time was puff daddy. So they're all very important cultural testaments, but. Peaching Jimmy page produce Andrew just reminded and Hanks's area. Yes. But there was a tie in with Taco Bell, and that Chihuahua. Oh, that was the days of the Chihuahua. Cure Taco Bell jeez, and he was trying to lure Godzilla into a box. I do remember that. I knew you recall. I just had to explain it a little bit. Oh, yeah. Well, hopefully we won't we won't be talking to. But I mean Taco Bell is a whole thing, and we'll we'll get into that a little bit later. We've got some some other history for you. Yes. That is actually Mexican, but I going to get into a quick break for a word from our sponsor. Today's episode is brought to you by thrive market dot com.

And we're back. Thank you sponsor. Yes, thank you. So to start off here. There are a lot of unknowns in the tacos origins. Yes, origin story if you will, according to author, Jeffrey impelled, ser who spent twenty years, traveling the world researching Mexican food. The taco probably wasn't invention of necessity and convenience like a very long time ago yet because this should be separate episode probably, but briefly, let's talk about tortillas. Yes. Which are key in taco formation. They are, as I said earlier, the original tortillas where these corn Massa tortillas by around six thousand BC peoples in Mesoamerica had started to domesticate wild maize, and by around two thousand five hundred BC e they were making Mesa cordo so long time ago. Yes. And the tortillas. So f- goes back to a long time ago at least until fifteen hundred. C E win Montezuma reportedly used the tortilla as a spoon, make sense, men heading off to work would take food wrapped in tortillas with them for lunch when Hernando Cortez arrived in fifteen nineteen to Mexico they found the indigenous peoples, eight flat corn breads, and they named them tortillas to Spanish. Yes. Yes. Brunell de has Kosti you who arrived with Cortez and wrote a true history of the conquest of the new Spain possibly described the first taco party. What? Yeah. And he described tacos stuffed with everything from pork, two locus. Yeah pork. The Spanish, brought pigs with them to the Americas adding pork meat and fat to the culinary scene there. Eighteenth century silver miners in Mexico needed an easy cheap hand held food option in silver mines the word taco referred to charges that they use to get to the or charges of gunpowder wrapped in paper, so kind of talk. Oh, like sure, yes. And like we said at the top that's one of the. Reasons that maybe that's where the word comes from, but the word taco didn't appear in any records until the nineteenth century the nineteenth century. One of the first instances of tacos was tacos. Demon Aero's are minors tacos? The 1891 novel low spend vetoes del Rio for you mentioned tacos and seems to indicate they were already around and Mexico City by that time and with industrialization, and the moving of people into working class neighborhoods, especially in places like Mexico City people moving into the city brought with them foods and cooking styles from their home. So all sorts of foods, were available and melting together. This was the birth of the Tucker, you and not just as a standing restaurant tacos were often sold as street, food, often by women would carry them around in baskets, and just kind of boop. Boop boop amount. Really, we could do an episode on several specific type of Teco's like a taco miniseries. Oh, yeah. You heard about tacos Alpa store in our Schwartz episode at those kind of a little bit later in the nineteen twenties with the migration of Lebanese people to play, blah, and other parts of Mexico. The first mention of taco in the United States took place in nineteen oh, five newspaper article this is around the time when Mexican migrants started making their way to the United States, primarily to work in the mines or on railroads and they brought with them their food like tacos. But other Americans regarded them as lower class food, we talked about this a bit in our Tamale episode tacos were associated with things like the San Antonio, chili queens, which was this group of women who sold foods at festivals to make some extra money with the advent of tourism via railroad in the eighteen eighties business rose enough to warrant nightly sales, and they topped the list of things to do in Mexico tourist described as a food as biting like the of course, the chili queens were sexualize and seen as exotic and. Quote available which added to the allure for tourist back in Mexico. The upper classes had begun gentrifying tacos, newspapers were printing recipes that incorporated, expensive ingredients and European trends like a dessert called tacos decree, Ma that published in nineteen. Oh, eight and L diarrhea del Hogar, which roughly translates to like the household daily or like the newspaper of the home, and depending on how you want to read it, it this recipe called for French-style crepes filled with pastry cream rolled up, like tacos arranged in a pyramid covered in Marang and decorated with strawberries at orange blossoms and violets. Pretty far cry from like taken Molin to work by. Yeah. Yeah. I would say Lori. The nineteen twenty nine cookbook Ramona's Spanish Mexican cookery by Pauline, Wiley Klieman came with six taco into Kita recipes including port tacos. And like every part of the pork liver, kidney, jowls, Liber, said liberal twice because it's that important snout and ears. Yeah. And that was in American cookbook. Yes tacos, went more mainstream here in the states when the children of these first migrants grew up this first wave of migrants. Many of them fault in World War, Two their wages were increasing, and they won't be able to get Mexican food. And it wasn't really there. However, this Mexican food that they came out with was kind of more of a blend. So in the case tacos like using processed in cheap shredded cheese process hamburger meat tomatoes, iceberg lettuce. Kind of how we think of taco like the, you know, fast food American taco today. Absolutely. One of the first uses of small gas powered and electric engines in the nineteen forties. And fifties is making Masa by the nineteen sixties, small tortilla making machines could make tortillas every two seconds. And then we get to insen outta Mexico, which is a port town, and they claim to have invented the fish taco after they opened their large fish market in nineteen fifty eight of for sure. Fish tacos. Existed earlier than that. I mean like thousands of years earlier than that. But also the railroads built in the nineteen teens brought fresh seafood into Mexico City like right when taco culture was booming and fish tacos. Really took off in San Diego in nineteen Eighty-three Ralph review who tried and fell in love with fish tacos, while in Baja Mexico. He he returned home and found he couldn't find them anywhere. So he went back to Bahama Cliquot and went back to his favorite hole in the wall place. And he tried to convince the chef to come back with him to San Diego and open a restaurant together and the chef refused, but he did very kindly in my book, gave Rubio his recipe and Rubio went onto open Rubio's which there. Came to fame as quote home of the fish taco. People from San Diego, please. Write in like that came up many times that the fish taco is so popular in San Diego. Cool. I've been I don't seem to recall being like wow. I think I've ever been Cindy ago. Yeah. It's nice. It's nice during your session in the nineteen fifties in Sanford synth day residents started to sell basket tacos and to this day taco makers on bikes set off in the morning with baskets of tacos and jars of green and red salsa whole thing. Covered with tarp and set up shop outside of universities in offices, which a smart. Oh, absolutely. And it is time to talk about the fast food taco and one, Glenn Bill. Yes that bell. Yup. Of the taco fame, according to bell, the key to the fast food taco was a prefight U-shaped shell, which he claims to have invented in the nineteen fifties. However, patents existed for this very product in the nineteen forties awarded to Mexican restaurant. Jurors Mexican American. Yeah. Yes, my skin cookbooks from that same decade included recipes for making the. As prying up tortillas and bending them into this shape and people were probably doing it even for that. Oh, sure. But yeah. We, we could do a whole dang episode about bell and his business. Because the, the I had to I had to stop I had to stop myself. Yeah, it seems pretty fascinating. But I was like, okay. Later concentrate later, the first Taco Bell opened in nineteen sixty two and the franchise went public in nineteen seventy two and Glen bell started opening them. I throughout L A, but not in Mexican neighborhoods, restaurants with taco in the name, her way to bring in non Mexican Americans for Americanized Mexican food. Yeah. Outside of Taco Bell, which was following in the footsteps of Ray Kroc, McDonald's concept. There were all kinds of fusion's going on in these Anglo taco restaurants. My favorite was a Jewish fusions like kosher pastrami tacos. Oh, wow. Yeah. I have never heard of that. I want to try them. But as fascinating as like delicious sounding as that is, it's, it's really telling of the racism, and classism, that was going on at the time, Los Angeles. Head Reese, aggregated through the nineteen forties and fifties and racial tensions in the sixties were still really high Mexican restaurants, catering to Mexican-Americans avoided using the word taco in their names rights and Taco Bell has never been successful in Mexico, despite numerous tips. Makes makes sense to me. I can't imagine why their race. It's racist caricatures of Mexico's culture, would make Mexicans not like them that much. That's weird. Very strange in the sixties. A few brands brought pre fried taco shells to supermarkets across America. The first del taco opened in California in nineteen sixty four it made one hundred sixty nine dollars which I believe was nine hundred Taco's this a lot. Oh, yeah. And in nineteen sixty nine another thing that popped up a lot for me. The originator of the stray leeann taco, Bill drench is opened in Gold Coast by a Mexican American who had migrated there from what I understand. They kicked off a pretty widespread Australian interest in Mexican food. I don't this is not a sweeping generalization, but I do want to say the worst case ever had in my life. I and Austrailia I ordered the case the DEA and I got iceberg lettuce and cold cheese. Oh, that's not what I think of. Still mad about it. Clearly, I remember thinking, we'll maybe this is like a salad like. Yeah. But clearly, it was not that was just crossed wires. Well, you know in the happens. Oh, sure, sure. And we do have some, some more history for you listeners. But first, we're gonna pause for one more quick break for word from our sponsor. I can't believe that Gerald is presenting the quarterly budget report with finger puppets book, here comes one point seven percent decrease in fixed overhead. Hello, everybody. No, I can't believe how easy it was to save hundreds of dollars on car insurance with gyco. Are you though projected increase in organic Khukri revenue? Believe it. Geico could save you fifteen percent or more on car insurance. And we're back he spots. Yes. Thank you. And we're back with legal drama legal drama about tacos. Oh my goodness. Listers now I love some legal drama at never having seen law and order, I like the more boring kind of real life legal Trump. But to start off the story, I have to admit something to you. I have never heard of taco Jones, taco John's neither have I. Well, apparently, it's a mid west thing, there's four hundred locations based in Wyoming, I opened in nineteen sixty nine and it's one of the largest taco chains in the United States and in nineteen eighty nine they coined the phrase taco Tuesday. This legal drama has to do with taco Tuesday. It does it has everything to do taco Tuesday. They legit registered trademark it. Oh. Oh, god. I love it. So intensely. Yes. Which makes me wonder how they got away with it in the like, oh, movie if you've ever seen it. But yeah, this means that no one else is technically supposed to use that phrase in like an advertising or official capacity, and I'm sure that you can already see the problem here. Yeah. It's a derby pie situation as we like to call it here at savor. Every couple of years, taco, Johnson's out cease and desist letters to small restaurants using that phrase, and they don't care if it makes them look bad or mean on the website. It reads we started it. We've been trademarked it. That's how seriously, we take tacos and twenty sixteen. A spokesperson said it would be quote, unfavorable for them not to protect it. It's part of our DNA taco Tuesday. Is this American institution not to take the chance to talk about it and our story that would go against? We are. This is the stuff movie shabby about. Doc. Oh oh, Tuesdays. But more intrigue here, according to them, the phrase, urgent it from a franchisee in Minnesota in the early eighties who I called it taco Tuesday like the number, but then they have another claim on their very own website that contradicts that clean. This one puts taco Tuesday out of South Dakota in one thousand nine hundred and there's another claim from taco John's that puts it in nine hundred eighty two they can't get their own storing string. Getting worked up. And taco Tuesday goes all the way back to nineteen thirty-three three tacos on Tuesday for fifteen cents in El Paso. But it wasn't really called taco Tuesday. We want to get technical about this whole thing, which apparently everyone does the first recorded instance, of that took place in nineteen seventy three in South Dakota. Another instance, a place in Kansas City in nineteen seventy five. Mexican chain. Baker's drive thru headed taco, Tuesday, special going all the way back to nineteen sixty seven which might have been a one off, but was established by nineteen Seventy-six regularly occurring thing to this day. They advertise taco Tuesdays. Oh, New Jersey's Gregory's restaurant and bar, successfully filed for a trademark on taco Tuesday in nineteen seventy nine so roundabout those parts they own it. We skip ahead to nineteen Ninety-seven, the restaurant tortilla, flats filed a federal lawsuit over the use of the phrase taco, Tuesday at seven. Other restaurants, claiming it was infringement and demanding five million dollars over talking, they settled outside of court good that same year. Talker Tuesday was getting in some legal trouble in Canada, taco time Canada's into to cease, desist to a small Cantina and Calgary for trademarking the phrase. And if we skip ahead to a roundabout now, something similar recently happened in Australia with the sauces fresh mix chain, which sent a cease and desist to two competitors. Over the phrase, man, I never thought that the taco Tuesday would be so so controversial. Yeah. People want ownership of that phrase. And we just throw it about willy nilly million our everyday lives. Pretty important plot. Movie. Yeah. I it's causing potential taco losses. It's true. True. Well, that's the end of the legal drama Packer Tuesday. Meanwhile, meanwhile, wral Martinez often gets credit for opening the first taco truck in nineteen seventy four he took an ice cream truck and flipped it into a taco truck and parked it outside of bars and LA. That is so smart and people loved it enough so that he was able to open a brick and mortar called king taco in six months, and now it's a chain worth. Millions of dollars also started a taco truck trend part of the street food trend in LA, that is now worth billions. Yeah. Yeah. I, I would I would hazard that without the taco truck here in the United States, we would not have gotten the amount of street food checks and general that we now have. Yes, yes, I went to a taco truck festival. Many years back was just like twenty taco truck Slough from Atlanta thing of beauty. In nineteen eighty-five tacos went to Spain. Mexican astronaut follow Maryvale requested tortillas as part of his provision, and you can hear all about this at our space food episode, but tortillas would become the cooked DOE of choice for NASA because it doesn't crumble like risen breads or crackers crumbs can float into instruments, and causal kinds of trouble. Nasa had troubles with tortillas shelf-life, but they wound up he was sitting tortillas for manufacturer that sells to Taco Bell, which had come out with a twelve month shelf, stable product in the nineteen nineties, though, they do say that they use fresh ones for short shorter missions in two thousand seven or two thousand eight I'm not sure which the Nickelodeon, teen sitcom, I Carly featured spaghetti tacos which became a whole thing. Apparently, apparently, if you ask a child who are up a human person who was a child around that time, there are so many recipes for this online. I guess it's just like spaghetti with red sauce stuffed at a fried taco shell but. I've bigly remember that. Yeah, yeah, I don't know. I felt like I should mention it. Something else that we felt like we should mention is Lauren knows everyone in this office knows I've very eager to talk about this just because I found it fascinating. It's pretty cool. All right. Cool ranch. It'll all make sense in a minute. But a lot of you're like, oh boy, I in two thousand nine three years before Taco Bell turned to the big five. Oh, the CEO sent out a company wide requests, calling for submissions to reinvent the crunchy taco, okay? Sort of like the equivalent of a new bread for your sandwich, which other fast food chains are always doing thirty different products were injured for consideration. One stood out above all the others. The submission from frito lay frito lay. Yes. A torito's based talk. It was just an image with the description. I want to put that in there was no actual product. But everyone was like, yes, this thing we must make this thing. And at first they took a standard shell and used a spray gun to cover it with Doritos Nacho cheese play, boring, and they brought it in and two hundred customers tested it out at consensus was pretty much. This is terrible. Oh, yeah. But that didn't stop Taco Bell and the DLT as they call it internally. From launching in twenty twelve and they went on to sell four hundred fifty million, and they made way for the cool Ristori does Lucas tacos. Yeah. They were selling a one million of these things per day when they first came out. Yes. But there was there was some steps in there that brought them to this, this cultural. Yeah. Because it was alarming, and arduous research process. Yes. And the problem was two different types of corn Massa that the products used. They didn't match. The does uses a different one than the taco shells did. And for two years, a team tackled this from all angles structural integrity, seasoning, mechanics, crunch ability. You've all heard that study about Doritos how they found a way to remove the dust right? Like so it wouldn't get on your fingers. But then everyone was like, nah, that's not thereto. That's not to read us experience. People want that. Yeah. The mess. Yeah, and the same was true with the taco, there were forty. Prototype board. Forty people who worked on this project described it as a huge engineering challenge. Okay. Yeah. Because the shells had to be mass produced bendable, but not breakable. Unlike a chip chip can break. Sure. And they can't be seasoned in the same way that flat chip would be either by tumbling them about a rotating, seasoning, barrel become because they would break exactly Taco Bell to make their own season or to solve this problem. Without it the manufacturing facilities would have been filled with a Nacho cheese gas. That is a free that I read at a scientific article everybody. Cheese gas. And this was all done without a contract between frito lay and Taco Bell. They launched without one. And so these tacos entered a few select cities, slowly and people went wild for them. I posting about them right about them, and then the demand increased because they're like, why can't get one of these things. The company quickly realized they'd have to build two plants specifically for these rita's locust taco shells. Yeah. The first week they sold millions. The company saw thirteen percent increase in sales during their second quarter that year and that never happens. Wow. Never. And then after that a contract between the two companies aside. The New York Times talked to a food scientist about this phenomenon of the Doritos taco and we touched a little bit on the signs of snack foods in our Cheetos episode how researchers balance a few sensations, to make snacks, tastier and more credible. And the Doritos taco hits all of them. You got you got flavors balanced just so so that they're salty in pike, but not too strong like they, they don't trade her. What's called sensory specific say shitty, aka you don't go? You know, that's enough of that flavor for now just about done there. You just wanna keep eating it. The scent of cheese and garlic is supposed to trigger to Stella. They contain both lactic institute acids, which trigger saliva production, and they've got dynamic, contrast, which is that, that crispy shell. And then the fatty felling. I've been had one. Have you had one? I felt kind of bad including it. But I I was so fascinated with how long it took. How dedicated they were the science, like those words, I read about, like crunchy Bill. They are people legit. Oh, yeah. Absolutely. Like, really hard like engineers and. Whole teams. It's a. That is like the Americanization of the taco to the oh, all the way all the way up hard. Yeah, it was interesting, though. I actually had to add some of the stuff I put in there because otherwise this whole episode about me, like, did you know this many people worked on a bit annoying everybody in the office for? So moving on a twenty ten article out of the New York Times about the Korean taco because I tried to look into I couldn't find too much specific information about the Korean taco, but it puts one of the first popular US instances at one of my favorite ATL restaurants. I really Hankook Tucker you. Okay. Yeah. Which are some of my favorite fries in the city and I'm still angry that forgot to mention them in our French fries episode. No. Yeah. Very good price. But the place that usually gets the allusive first designator in this country is Koji out of LA the brainchild of ROY Choi. And Mark Mangueira people were making these before this, but they popularized it for sure showing in twenty twelve an MIT grad Hoechst, the internet with his vision of the taco comfor-. This is a quad copter drone that claimed to be in beta testing to deliver tacos straight to your door to consumers, or I mean, I guess, wherever you are really for, for consumers in these in Francisco. Hey area beta was not the right word for it. And it was really just a concept that the designer Sam Simpson was was really taken with and the country was taken as well. I forgot about the taco cop go after. That's fun. Yeah. There's like legal issues with when airspace. And I'm back. Oh deliver and stuff. Yeah. So there have been a few food delivery via a drone stunts, but. Yeah. We're, we're, we're a few years out, I think, in terms of legal definitions of, of flight. Well. If they can get into arguments around taco, Tuesday, we can make thereto slow coast, taco than I believe we can get their day. I don't know if it'll be a good or bad thing. People have insatiable love for taco. Yeah. And, and human, ingenuity when it comes to getting tacos. It's endless. Indeed, indeed. The humble taco. Soaring. Great new height as business base. Well, I guess. Yeah. Yes. Space is higher than a drone. Go. What? I whole concept about a world. Works shifted. Yeah. This ode is just about brings us to the end of our taco episode. Yes. But it brings us to this. Hey. Taco copter taken off. Oh, hook. Rush me wrote. My family is Indian specifically south Indian in origin. And although I was raised in freezing cold, Massachusetts, where the Jack tree couldn't survive a day. If I tried I spent many summers visiting grandparents, and extended family in south India, my maternal grandfather's way of saying, I love you isn't verbal instead to express his affection for me, my brother, and my cousins, he'd bring home and painstakingly cut and clean pounds and pounds and pounds of fruit. Oh, man goes guavas, an entire massive Jack fruit. I'll never forget the first time I saw one my grandfather had put it in the backyard area of his house, and we'll playing indoor tag side note kids, this is why you shouldn't play Jag in the house. I ran into the backyard and hold their your sleep tripped over and landed on it, causing me to have many scratches that looked like I'd been poked by porcupine with very dull. Quilt. I then proceeded to lie down next to it and discover to my amazement that it was the same height as I was that. If I tried I could fully hide, I seek became a theme in my family with Jack foods, one summer when we went on a family reunion of sorts in Kerala, a southern Indian state where you're Jack fruit grows like reads we stayed at a resort with several Jack fruit trees on the property. I was flabbergasted. I'd never seen. A Jack fruit tree in my life. The fruit goes right off the trunk all up and down the tree and looks like bulbous projections instead of a growing off higher branches like the fruit were used to here in America. My cousins ni- played hide and seek on that trip hiding behind an under Jackson until hotel management, notice and freaked out. So heavy that if one of them had broken off the tree and fallen on one of us children, we would have been killed the flavor of ripe Jack fruit is definitely polarizing. It's never reminded me of mango, or pineapple is a lot of people say, but of really, really strong floral smelling. Honey? It has an overpowering, sweet smell almost sickly sweet. But the taste is much more understated. It almost has a generic fruit taste that's sweet and heady with just a touch of tartness at the back end. I love it so much. So that my cousin my brother and I once polish off a twenty kilogram Jack food over the course of a day, but have developed a contact dermatitis to their off. Real meaning that the inside of my mouth and my throat gets highs when eating now. Oh, I still have it cooked candor and ship form though. If you'd like to get your hands on, right. Check fruit. It's definitely possible. My local whole foods store in the Washington, DC area, sells whole fruit and cut pieces of the ripe fruit as well. However, you want to make it easier on yourself. I'd recommend checking out your local Asian markets, especially those that cater to the Indian Vietnamese communities. I've seen the clean defeated right? Pods available for sale at lots of plaza South Korean superstore with locations in the US located in an area with a high Indian population. I've also seen them available as dessert option. My favorite local bond me joint. So I'm gonna keep my eye out. Yeah. I do still have at during ice cream that we really go. We do. We do. Okay. Yes. But a lot of people have written in about the Jack fruit, and I've, I've very much enjoyed it because. Yeah. Like we said, for us, it's kind of been. The radar. Yeah. Yeah. There's, there's at least one Vietnamese grocer I know that we could go check. Ooh. Yeah. Erin wrote when I saw the title for this week's podcast Schwab and euros I excitedly realized I finally had something who value about which to write you. But then you surprised me by already knowing quite a bit about the Halifax don't air, but your lack of reference for garlic. Fingers is a sad sad thing if I could package them up, and send them to you, I would in a minute, I live in New Brunswick, Canada, which is about four hours away from Halifax. So we share their love for donor sauce. And of course, use it in abundance on garlic fingers. But now to the more important question, what is a garlic finger garlic fingers begin as pizza dough usually round, but really any standard pizza shape. It's then coated with garlic butter or sometimes garlic early, and a hearty sprinkling of pizza mozzarella cheese for an additional fee. Many restaurants will add bacon bits. Oh, yeah. They will they are almost universally served as a sort of pizza app. Guitar most all Atlantic Canadian pizza places include garlic fingers in all their combos, garlic fingers are a wonderfully greasy at savory temptation, that I would love to share with the whole world. I did not realize they were regionalism until I was in university, and my out of town, friends were surprised and delighted and quickly obsessed with our favorite pre pizza snack. Sounds amazing. Oh, that does sound amazing. Yeah. Very similar to garlic bread here in the United States or like a like a pizza places garlic bread because it's just pizza dough. But then, like slathered in garlic butter and maybe some geez. It kind of cracks me up. I considered it until reading this. But it's funny how we have like a pre pizza pizza right, right? In addition to this giant flat of dough that I'm about to shovel my face. I'm gonna need some more dough with cheese on. Your pizza sauce. What are we doing? What are we doing like pizza? No argument. Now argument there. That is a topic longtime cutting oh it is. It is. Oh, so many cravings happening right now. All right.

Episode 258: Taco Nation

"All right you're listening bond. I'm Adam Rappaport this week. We built our entire episode around the cover story for our March issue. Called TACO nation got recipes essays graphic in more also rating tacos. It goes up. I is Andrew Martinez who developed a bunch of new recipes for the package. He walks us. The two of them His Duct Kearney says tacos and his pork vulcanized tacos plus he tells us about his foolproof formula for infinite kinds of salsas from chopped and raw to chart in pureed then associate editor Hillary Cadigan Who edited the package? Sits Down with Steven Alvarez professor of Taco literacy at Saint John's University in Queens one note on this segment Alvarez miss identified the name of a particular tacos he mentioned the one with the good chill Loria. It's actually called Delta Mahyco. Finally the writer. Manuel Gonzales. Essay Tacos are mine resistance. There is so much amazing stuff in this package. I urge you to check it out Out The recipes are all on Dot Com right now. The rest of the stories will go up tomorrow and the issue is on stands. All right enjoy the show. Is that a new apron. You have on their record. It is my Mexico City Apron. What what does it? Mexico City Apron entail exactly usually color. So this is my ox blood leather apron which I really like a lot whereas yet There's a shop called one eighty and Canessa and they just have like really cool clothes. Latino shirts really cool designs and I saw this apron hanging in the window was like I need need that for those people who have not been to Mexico City which is a city. I love Can you explain condensed as a neighborhood. It's it's really beautiful It's one one of the hearts of the city. It has a very distinct Style of architecture it's kind of mid parts of the Knesset our mid century. There are a lot really cool. Boutique shops a lot of designers a lot of artists. A lot of really cool new restaurants are opening up in that area but there are a lot of neighborhoods in Mexico. City that are happening right. Aroma is really fun sons Rafael. What is Knesset's welcome as a lot of tree ease a lot of charts and everything? I think people are always surprised when they go to Mexico City they they expect it to be a little more urban and the thing that's really great about Mexico City is that it's it's very tropical and so there are huge huge trees and in big parks. That are almost you can't see through them. It's it's like a tropical rainforest in in some cases I think it was. Somebody's expect more a little bit more like la where there's this concrete sprawl right ram but it feels so much more fertile in verdant As a city with all these neighborhoods and I think if you haven't been to Mexico City I highly recommended. You definitely need to go all right today. We have a big TACO cover story in the march issue by Rick Martinez as well as several other. Contributors there's a a lot about the history of the TACO and places. Get Him. I WANNA focus today a little bit more on the Tacos at you make and what you love about them and how you do it. I want to start with the cover TACO. Okay the Duck Kerr Nita's with radish ESCA Abeche you know got Anita's are my my favorite Taco and it's normally pork and I. I love them so much. It's like it's a textual thing. It's a flavor thing if properly cooked they should be really crispy on the outside and tender and soft on the inside and you know and I feel like people are accustomed accustomed to cut neat does and you know we have recipes on DOT com. Well let's start there and Juliette like Classic Cornelius and I'm with you like I can't resist Karnataka's WanNa see it What is the most classic way to make it? And what does that entail. I mean classic depends on where you are like in parts of Mexico the a AH pork is braised until all of the fat melts and then eventually The liquid evaporates and the the pork fried in its own fat. And so that's what gives you the the soft texture on the inside but then you get the crispy bits outside so as as brazing getting soft and breaking down the Collagen and all that and then it ends up simmering in its own fat and that gives that crispy crispy exterior right so in in the state of Mitchell gun which is in the central part of Mexico. There are these huge copper vats and they will literally put like you. You know almost a whole pig pots. And they're just slow simmered all day until the fat renders and depending on what town you're in There are some towns is like Uraga which they put oranges and cinnamon and herbs. And so you get a much more sort of flavorful and Almost fruity Style of Gedney does then you have other cities or towns like done that are like no. It's Salt Pepper Lard. That's it. I've been to those places porky. Yeah Yeah and I think both styles are equally good. Because you're going to get you're gonNA put sauce on. There are other things that are going to go on it. And if you've got really great quality pork you know it's really nice to taste the pork so when you go to class AT Kearney says place in in Mexico and they've got the big cauldron their simmering away do when people order do they tend to request certain cuts or parts. Yes so you can get a little bit of everything. So what happens is they. They will literally just pull the pork work out of the pot and put it on a board and then just shopping for you and a lot of places will save the ear hole and then people will request pieces of the ear. People request pieces. This is of the cheek and the snout. There's some awful in there as well so you can get that as a cut and then there's the sort of it's kind of like the brisket there's sort of dryer end and then there's the the more moist end. You can request those as well or just give me a little bit of everything chop it all up and put it in Taco dealer's choice. Okay so taking that sort of philosophy to be an approach to Karnataka's how do you then apply that to this. Duck aren't Nita's recipe that you that you created for the magazine. I you know I wanted to change it up. I think the really really amazing thing to me about Tacos in the United States right now is that there are a lot of really amazing. Things happening a lot of Mexican Americans and a lot of immigrants coming into of this country and they're taking their traditional methods and techniques from wherever they came from in Mexico but they're using local ingredients. They're using things that are more accessible to them in whatever location. They're they're in and what's happening is you're getting this really really cool food. It's the food of that they love. But it's got a an American twist on it and that's kind of what my approach was with all of these. You know I I love got Nita's Pork Gut Nita's but I wanted to you know to change it up a little bit and you can already find Rick's double poor Karnataka's rights on dot com just go double pork Anita's and that's what the pork shoulder shoulder and pork belly. Yeah ridiculously good and also like pretty easy. It's like five ingredients. That was the style that was going for. I was like I just want to taste really good pork and have a really great texture so so walk me through this recipe start with. Oh so so. This is basically a play off of a dot com fee. So you know I think a lot of people not no duct coffee and I I love duck and I thought it would be kind of fun to play a kind of riff off of that and I had originally thought you know confeing the duck legs legs in in duck fat. But it's it's expensive and honestly like I also like the idea of the duck and the pork coming together other so I actually just use lard largest pretty cheap so you spend the money on the duck legs I threw in some cinnamon. And some chillier our will and some Some orange ringe and some aromatics and you melt a pork fat. Put that over the The salted cured duck legs and that just slow roast in the oven until it falls off a UH of the bone. So you've got the texture and then of course you need to chat on is worse for cutting the TACO and you've got this amazing duck skin that's been you know slow brazing and and Lard and so you just take that off and give it a little pan fry in a little bit of the The Lard until it's really crispy. It's so good this was my favorite Taco of it. Made the cover and you put them orange in there. There's some clothes and you sort of cinnamon stick you infuse it with those flavorings will. Were you have meat that is that rich and crispy and anxious you then want to balance it with something a little acidic perhaps would you do. They're one of the things that I feel like a lot. A lot of people think of automatically is the onion which obviously exists in Ducati is both in Mexico here but radishes are are used Salat and the great thing about radishes. They cut through a lot of the rich fillings. They give you a little bit of bite. They pair well with chilies. Take acid really well so I wanted to play off of that also. They're really just. They're pretty so I kind of wanted to make a little radish bash. So you've got like the lime juice I've I've got Fresno peppers Because they're beautiful and they're they're a little bit more fruity than a than a Jalapeno. But you still got like that really nice heat and I think they they a pair well with the The duck and all the other airmax that are in there. You throw a curve ball at. I mean I consider a curve instead of CILANTRO. You're going with Tarragon and fresh mint. Herb sort of edition talked me about that. Well again I feel like most people just you know they. They have this association that Salon throw so is Mexican food and the reality is that you know in Mexico. There are so many different kinds of herbs and I've been driving around to markets all over southern and central Mexico and I'm I'm shocked continually shocked at all of these different herbs that are used and a lot of them unfortunately are not available here but the Tarragon Mint that kind of that flavor profile the flavor of Tarragon and the the kind of spiciness of the mint exist in a lot of the herbs that are used down there and so I wanted to mimic that kind of flavor profile. That was one of the reasons why used it. I think it also so might surprise. Some folks who think of Authentic Tacos at you paired the Duck Karnataka's not with the corn Tortilla with a flour Tortilla. Yeah and I know you when the piece when you're talking about good real tacos it all starts with the Tortilla. Yeah we'll talk to me about flour tortillas it is and where we're at right now so you know I grew up in Texas and my my grandmother and my mother made flour tortillas so that was at a time where where you know. You couldn't buy flour Tortillas at the grocery store or not good ones at least not when I actually I in the seventies and early eighties there were just not any the available out. Unfortunately then you started finding them in my. My mother stopped making them. which would stocked a fresh homemade flour tortillas amazing amazing? It's it's got more substance it's got more texture than what you normally find at a grocery store or store by Tortilla. It's a little thicker. And to be honest I didn't like cornered is growing up. Because the only corn Tortillas I had were the store bought and you know so it was my mom's homemade flour or the. The store bought packaged corn. So that to me is what home is that all of our tacos. The breakfast tacos Taco night was always on a flour Tortilla. The only time that we had corn was usually on the night and my mom would make Chilubas and fry the corn tortillas and then she'd layer with beans and choice oh and cheese And it wasn't until I started going to Mexico that you know I was like. Oh this is what a corn Tortilla is when you actually have according took the made from fresh next molest corn different colors different grinds you can actually taste the nuttiness and the toasting us of the of of the corn. I was like this is not anything like I've had and you know and we made the comparison in this piece about you know it's like eating sandwiches which is on you know sliced white bread you know. And all of a sudden you're introduced to Brioche and bulls and sour does and multi grains and. It's it's like Oh my God what what are we missing exactly. I think it was notable right now. In the states I with flour tortillas is that there are so many good like just delicious delicious flour tortillas net now available. We've mentioned the ones by the Kansas City brand caramella which we'll ship them to you. they ones with duck fat or avocado oil here on the New York area. Yeah Vista Hermosa. A great brand talk about the ones at Sonora town the restaurant in L. A.. But you you get a good flour Tortilla. They're translucent almost was transparent they're made with so much rich delicious fat pressed together or the little brown spots. Is there on the grid and it's just like it's almost like when you go to the Chinese restaurant and get Pekan docking at the pancakes. My God. This is amazing. Compared to like those flour ones with a lot of us grew up with at the supermarket and are basically what you get when you got a carafe at the cafeteria. And they're just they're horrible depressing. Yeah and you get the real thing and you're like oh now I get it. Yeah and a lot of people that I have not had good for the as just you know a lot of my friends have said to me. The tortilla is just the device to like get the food in your mouth and and then when you actually taste a real the you know at flour made with like an animal fat or a corn Tortilla made with like fresh corn. It actually has a flavor that complements the filling. And it's it's incredible it changes the the whole Taco. Yeah and we've mentioned in this article that there is a lot of chefs now that are sourcing heirloom corn grinding themselves. Making their own Masa they can then make tortillas from and you know we talked about the ones where he said we said. corn tortillas. You should buy in bulk at three sisters Knicks two mile and Portland Oregon Hawaii Masa in Honolulu Kernel of truth organics in La Yolly Yoli torture. tortil- lereah urea city and Manos Dome as in DC that yeah you Ghulam look it up. See what's in your area. Can you get the like you can go to cattermole out to get the this the flower ones. You Can Vista Hermosa ships. You if you're on the tri-state area there so worth searching out. It's like you you know if you grew up eating pizza like the difference when you get pizza with a really good crust make intr- real flowers and it's just like Oh you don't need all this random toppings on right 'cause the base itself so something you want to focus on. Let me ask you this from in Mexico. City dockery is I should hit up when I'm there. Okay head Luis Gutierrez. I have to go there almost every time I go down. It's it's a complete little hole in the wall. It's probably about the size of this table. So there is a giant pot in the very front of of this Taco stand and in it is lard and and then every cut of meat that they offer and every morning they they heat up the lard they put in the the beef pork although full all and everything just simmers in that same fat and then around midday everything is nice and soft. They'll they'll pull out. You know the piece that you order. They'll cut it up for you. A A lightly dip the Dorothy as in the fat put it on the Komo like kind of fry it up a little bit after they cut your meat they throw that on the Kamal get a little crispy edge on on that. Put a little more more fat on it. In credible seems like fat. Is The key word here. That is a big part of this for years. But you know it's I mean. It carries all the flavor ever. And then you've got this amazing pork fat that has all the flavors of all the different things that have been cooking in it. And so you know when you're hitting is in Mexico City or elsewhere in Mexico Exco what's your what's your drink of choice. Usually I love Aguas mean Homolka is is pretty common and I like it. A Lot in China's is pretty common so the MICA MICA is the high biscuits flower drink. And so it's just high biscuits flower. Water and sugar is rice usually cinnamon or Mexican cinnamon which Pinella sugar sometimes milk product. But you know when you're down there. The fruit is so amazing. And so what the I was our is basically basically just fruit and water And like there's a there's a pineapple called The meal it's a little bitty pineapple meal is honey or Syrup Syrup and it is so incredibly sweet and they just cut it up put it in a blender with water and blended up frothy pineapple. When you go to I have not Mexico as much as you have which is going to the markets and the bounty of fresh? Ripe Fruit is stunned incredible. Yeah and even in the middle of winter I mean you know in the middle of winter. It's seventy degrees in Mexico City right and they're still strawberry stands in high end and pineapple. Let's about another four recipes. We're GONNA talk about two of them in this package. You want to talk about the Vulcan volcano so this is something that was inspired by another duckie in in Mexico City. So there's there's a place called L. Our data and they have an incredible volk on Pastore So I'll pastas very popular in in In Mexico City in in particular It's pork that's put on a trump that That trump is a cooking method. That was brought by the Lebanese and the Iraqis and that migrated into into Mexico. It's a descendant of swarm actually swarm of Euro souvlaki layered on a spit right and so when it got into Mexico. Oh the meat was changed out to pork. And the spices were changed into dried chillies but the cooking method stayed the same so the Vulcan is are also called veto so so basically it's a corn Tortilla that's toasted on a griddle or Kamado until the edges kind of curl up and depending on what part of Mexico your in. They the either resemble a volcano which is done or in northern Mexico where there are a lot of bats they look they resemble about wing of a vampire bat and that's kind of a cooler day a yeah. I think so in northern Mexico. They're they're called Does but in any case to the to the tortillas get crispy or completely crisp said it's it's toasted so they kind of have a very toasted nutty corn flavor and they're completely crispy so you basically it's a slow toast on a on a low heat until l. all the waters evaporated and that's why they pucker up and curl and then the ones that I had were the up a store with a little bit of guests either either guess we'll Hukou. Seo or Kesse Frisco and some cells of editor and and that's a very subtle fresh white cheese yeah exactly. It's it's like a farmer's cheese or kind of like a cross between a Matsunaga and Jack but they're incredible they're absolutely delicious because you get the the the flavor of the toasted corn plus the crunch gives you that texture that you don't get an irregular Taco okay. So let's assuming if you don't have a spit at home. What are we make the meat for that? And that's why I wanted to to make this because you know I'm not in Mexico all the time and so you know and if you're craving up taught it's it's difficult for a lot of people to find it and even Ducati is around New York or whatever cindy you are in America don't always have thrown polls so this is really a much easier version so we are lightly freezing pork shoulder and we are slicing it. Really thin marinated are named freezing is just so to make it easier to slice right we. We've done this technique a couple of times for a cheese steak sandwiches and bogey and I really liked this technique a lot. So it's it mimics a a deli slicer so you basically you put your cut of meat in the freezer for about an hour until it gets really stiff we call for one two pound piece of skinless boneless pork shoulder yeah. Pork shoulder has a lot of flavor. It has a lot of marveling and fat. It can either be really quickly pan-fried which is what I did hear or you can do like long slow braces and it's also pretty economical so you can buy a nice piece freeze it do little really thin. shave slices Take a quick marinade with some What he'll and some dried chillies a little bit of Kyoto? Paste if you can find it which is very you know. That's that's kind of the the the calling card of an episode is the and then you just pan fry it the orange juice and lime juice. Yeah and so once that marinades and you just certain non-stick skillet give it a little pan-fried for a couple of minutes on each side and you've got your up on store. As you mentioned like go years this fits nicely. Sliced thinly. The inauguration of the high heat pretty quick he had a little crispy on the edges but still tender in the middle. Yeah I also didn't want to have anybody to sit at a skillet and Babysit tortillas so you put put on sheet trae in the oven let him go for like I think ten fifteen minutes day. they dehydrate. They crisp up they pucker and Dan. Now you've got your volcanoes so typically most Tacos or if you go to a doctor you often a good one You get your choice of salsas often yup for the home-cooked give me some basic salsa advice. What to do what not to do? You know I think people get really scared about getting it right right and the reality is is that you probably have everything you need for good salsa already in your in your house or your pantry. I think my favorite kind of salsa and a lot of the docket he has do this they make blender sauces so you need some kind of a base which typically is either a tomato or tomato but but you can also use fruit bases which I actually a lot because you know. They had a little bit of sweetness. You can also get like underwrite mangoes which actually is a lot easier a here or pineapple. You just cut that up and that becomes your your base in the BLENDER SALSA I listed out some non-negotiables I think in order to get that salsa flavor. You need a little bit of heat from an onion garlic and then obviously chili s question. So yeah you choose your heating Serano Hobby narrow all which are very accessible in the states as well as other ones Fresno Tyke Haskell etcetera the non-negotiables ables how prevalent is garlic in Mexico and sauces is garlic kind of like a non-negotiable or is that Rick Martinez thing. That's more anything And I think that's probably a little more common in Texas. And maybe some of the northern states generally the further in further and you go It's just GONNA be white onion white onion sort of the choice for a lot of the the salsas but a lot of the blender salsas do put they'll throw in a clove of garlic in there as well and I just feel like it the garlic onion kind of balance each other out. Because you're not putting that much you're probably putting like a quarter of an onion in there and then some herb. You said with assange Roman Parsley Tarragon. Basil we kind of do it as a formula in the magazine. You said you pick a fruit or vegetable or both. I mean tomatoes a fruit as always reminded us that acid sweetness. You get your chilly. Herbs Onion garlic lime juice. Salt blend it. You say. Give some options and you say you can blend it or have a bit more time chop everything into cute little cubes for a Pico de guy. Oh Viper a hand chopped version. Yeah Yeah and then talk about the more charred jarred sauces. I love making Salsas charring things on the grill so like in the summertime when I have access to a grill. I'm out there I'm like just grilling everything But also it's a really great way to coax flavor out of out of season produce so like yesterday. I had a green pineapple bed. Ed Essentially was hard as a rock and didn't have any flavor and didn't want to like the grill so I actually just put the pineapple slices directly on the great of guest stove love. And so you get like the quick charring. It's softened it up and remarkably it actually started. It tastes like pineapple again. It probably brought out the sugar and brought out the sugar. So you get the CARAMEL airmail. You get a little bit of Char it soft and and obviously it was under ripe so wasn't super sweet. But that's actually kind of what you want for. You WanNA little hint of sweetness but not not like something that I've done it before the friend Louis who's from Mexico City originally and just you want also with your tacos. It's not peak season on the east coast with tomatoes ddos and there's nothing worse than trying to make the guy. Oh with under ripe tomatoes. It's just it's sad but you can take some of those same tomatoes Roma Salad Tomatoes and put them in a cast iron skillet in Charleston. Get the ADS is little black in introduces us. Sort of a depth of flavour right. That is not their prior and then throw everything in the blender exact you'd also charge the onion a little bit in Chile. Or what would you do. I usually try and stick with you. Know maybe one or two charred things in one or two Roth okay Just as you have a contrast of fresh and so it's not to smoking right right because after at a certain point it everything is just gets one note like you'll just arguing to taste this char. I've made that mistake most recently. I was like yeah. Yeah then I think what's funny about this package that you worked on not only the recipes the point of view but we have got great essays from Mexican Americans about the importance of Tacos in their life hyphen where to get them sort of put him into cultural context but before we go you got a couple of minutes rick. Pitch US on the book. You're working working on right now. I'm so excited about this. Basically I feel like a lot of people. Think of Mexican food is being tacos and Burritos and Nachos and the country is so big and there's so much coastline and there's so much you know agriculture happening in Mexico and so what I've done done is I bought a car in Mexico City and I'm literally driving to every state in Mexico all thirty one states and just exploring the food and the culture culture in the markets and so the book is going to be a regional Mexican cookbook that highlights the the foods of each different region But in in a much easier and approachable way like. I don't want anybody to have to buy special equipment. I don't want you to have to lake source thirty ingredients from Amazon or specialty Food stores so it's GonNa be the the American grocery store version of these dishes because I'd also like just by ticketing actually go to Mexico neat the mall a couple apple questions. How many miles do you expect to carbon by the time you know done so I am officially halfway done? I've hit sixteen states sixty nine cities and eleven thousand kilometers so I will probably put another eleven thousand on so that all total in miles. We'll probably twelve to fifteen thousand. That's manageable we you know. There will be recipes in the book. How much will the book also sort of a travel guide in terms of where to visit or maybe where to stay those sort of things about each destination each chapter will open up with You know a photo essay and An Essay about the the region itself like. Why is the food this way? Why what are the people like? What does the Geography Lake Back? And I'm going to highlight like the places that I really loved that. I think that people should be visiting and trying to food. There's a particular career restaurant. Make sure you go here when visit. Exactly yeah what is your instagram. It is Rick Underscore Andrew Underscore Martinez. I would highly recommend to the listener to start falling rick. Short of travelling along with you during this journey is so cool not only seeing the food of what you always take amazing. Beautifully naturally lit photos of but the ingredients and the restaurants and the markets and the architecture so much countries so many different vibes and personalities and cultures within that giant country that I think sometimes Americans think of just oh Mexican food right which is such a limited way to think of it and even me like you know I i. I've been in Mexico quite a bit but like they're so many things things like every day is just like some new thing that I I didn't know before and and what's really cool about this book is basically all of the things that I love. Eating eating on. This journey are going to be in the book. That's what I love about. The Ram follow is at. You can sense your enthusiasm as you sort of experience. It's and learn about these new things as you go. Yeah Yeah Okay so you can check out Rick's recipes in in the march issue of Bon apetit. Thanks so much thank Q..

And I am here with Steven Alvarez who teaches a class called Taco literacy at Saint. John's University in Queens his locally known as the TACO professor. So we've got an expert in here today. Stephen I guess my first question is how does does one become a professor of Taco literacy. Oh I guess I asked myself that question all the time and You know it's it's more of like a career trajectory that brought me here. My research was always about Mexican. People mexican-american by background and it just so happened that when I was of course studying about Mexican folks migration and stories that food was always there and I think over time emerged at food became a way for me to think about language family care migration all bound together really to think about the resilience of Mexican communities. So it was sort of a food was always the undercurrent but then it sort of exploded and I realize through food I could reach a lot more people to to get my message out and in terms of humanizing Mexican immigrants so I guess it was a natural trajectory. Just kind of happened that way and you know to be the TACO professor. I mean not working to yeah title you know who taught you like is there their their legions of Taco professors. That came before you this. Are you kind of the first. Her a really have to say it all begins with my family. I mean he begins with the knowledge. It's passed down from my family's bow side my my parents and my grandparents and didn't really appreciate the time it's kind of the thing we're growing up. I think I was ashamed of our food Turning more towards I like the chicken mcnuggets and Yummy stuff that stuff. That was fast food and that kind of appeal and To really reflect on it though once I realized later on in Grad School I met Gustavo Arianna on with another Taco Maestro and I realized there is a whole body of research into Mexican food. Something that I had Harley really thought that folks would consider a place ace of academic study so it really opened my eyes and then I realized there's just so much material so there's a lot of great books about Tacos Taco USA Planet Taco Taco pedia books about tortillas so it really just kind of fit in place and so I think tapping into the different kinds of research out. There really broaden my perspective. Sure okay cool so walk me through the first day of the TACO literacy class. I mean of course we have to introduce the syllabus and y'all have to just kind of sit in together and say hey we're in a class about tacos and we just have to get that out of the way you serve Tacos up the first day actually bring in Tom Unindo Tamra and also candy Tamarin so they can see what the raw product looks like but also with the finished product looks like an Indian practiser instagram. Taking pictures you know the same way they would do a self like twelve different times to get their dimple mixture Tamarind dimple and everything right twenty to notice things right but anyway it's also a way for them to do a little bit of research about Tamarin and how it's migrated across the world and different cuisines and different kinds of strands of the plant. That have emerged over time and it really even looking into the etymology of the word which comes from Arabic it a lot of idea how that moved around because the language in the food or connected together so even though the very beginning. There's some levity about hey we're in Taco class and then you're you're getting go into and then really moving into how this can be critical So I try to bounce the fun to try to keep them amused very hard and also bringing in food to talk about the food and really kind of get hands on with it but also think about how they're trying to write about the food because it really is a writing class okay. What is the lesson that you're like most excited to teach every year? I mean I have a lot of fun where I take students on a Taco tour of planes Nathan and we go to a few different places and we try some of the lesser known tacos. That people don't really know I mean the people know about him but they're more popular here. New York's DOC was out of this Douglas plus settled tacos out of this are sort of the grandfather will understand his tacos bestowed and and this was more. Just describe it. This is the kind of swarm style meet that was brought From Lebanese Immigrants Lebanese Iraqi immigrants to Mexico and well sort of Giro swarm a style later on was adapted to pork and that then became Because it was on a pita bread was a thick dorthy like a flour Tortilla ask for the colloquially Mexican recognize that those Arab Tacos for the immigrants then later on they adapted them well. And that's kind of where the genesis of the talk we understand it is. DOC was out pastor or shepherd style talk Mediterranean influence so even just that for example When speaking with the students find that kind of trajectory in the movement while we're walking on the street in Queens and somebody is carving trump? Oh and we can actually see where that's coming from and in the students by this time because it's usually the end semester treat. They have this kind of very critical vocabulary to speak about corn production of corn. Meeks the mall they can speak about also aspects of trade and trade inequality. So it's it's a lot more than just doctors but talk is the entry the report and I think tacos generally are the entry for a lot of people on when it comes to Mexican food. Yeah Yeah I guess that kind of brings us a lot of what you're teaching. I mean we've got the writing aspect but you're kind of taking them through. You know the history of of tacos. Where do you start for our TACO package the magazine you wrote our time line the tacos in the USA so that was specifically glee about Taco moments here in the states? But I feel like in order to even jump into that time when we need to go back to like okay where did talk come from in the first place just like you asked me about great moments and Taco go history and there's a lot yeah he's hardly four. I mean there's the larger I guess Mesoamerican ancient history where really it's the I don't know as you say the genius invention of the flat bread of the cornea and anything that goes inside the corn Tortilla then some way becomes a Taco but really was just considered how you eat almost like another utensil but really becomes popular. I guess you would say in the first wave and late nineteenth century in Mexico. Where so the legend goes Minors from PACHUCA founder way to Mexico City city and brought along with them of cuisine they were used to now one of the legends is at the origin of the word. TACO is for a stick of dynamite. Where we understand that Kito today So there's that sort of collection of people coming from rural areas and working areas to Mexico City and then the food becomes sort of popularized street food when we see things like Canasta Tacos inbox very mobile food but also a working class class people well later on when folks start arriving to United States around Mexican revolution. Especially you see sort of I guess the second wave and that's when Mexican food really starts entering the United States in larger numbers outside of California and Texas historically and that time you start to see talk was emerging in different places and especially becoming popular in places like California Yeah all throughout and around the the border area but also handfuls of folks making your way up to Chicago to and that second wave is still Mexican. Food hasn't quite made its way into the American palate. It was more popular at the time. Where tamales and Chile we understand surely concurrently? Those are the first mainstream foods around nineteen fifties when we had some fast time Innovation Post War War American bootstraps mentality of late The sit down restaurant the inventions of the U. Fryer So really see the emergence of fast food culture emerging with Mexican can food. He's playing with fire. So this is what we understand today to get the hard shell TACO because it doesn't exist always like that in the natural shop scrape it off to corn. It doesn't doesn't come off hardshell there's no process and then they had to find some people all kinds of mentality and who've NCO Maldonado here New York City was the first one who designed this you contraption for frying the same way like French fry operation would work because too many people burn hats would hurt yourself worse standards and interested development veers the ooh Corden bomb machine or whatever but you know there were some people who are experts at this who are able to just have developed calendar fingers anything but in order to be able to produce produce ten twenty thirty per order had to be a faster way to do this so credit that American innovation I guess but also some people would argue appropriation so the third wave though you start to see happening around well post nineteen seventies were more Mexicans from Mexico begin to arrive up until the eighty s and then well into the nineties and here you can start to see more regional varieties Friday's Mexican food Somewhat serving that idea of the standard Taco which is the Taco Bell kind of Taco. So what was bringing them during to the. US during that time was there. There was the larger geopolitical and social issues but probably the largest one was a Mexican peso crisis in the nineties and also Arguably North American Free Trade Agreement which destabilized a plot of land farmers or sub algae say farmers who had small plots of land subsistence farmers and who could no longer compete with the corn that was being dumped from the United States. It was it's cheaper for them to buy corn and grow their own horn into birthplace of corn Mexico so that that wave brought different people I from rural areas of Mexico Mexico City and that's when Mexico Exeter's city had tremendous growth and a lot of those folks that are coming to places like New York a lot of folks from the state of Kuebler here Employment York. So you know and I would say maybe the fourth way might be where we are now and kind of into the present and we started to see this sort of ubiquitous popularity of Mexican food and Gorman Gourmet Food and even gourmet tacos news and the return to heirloom tortillas. And maybe you know there might be in the future we might say going on. Because I think you've heard breaking this down four and the aspects would say that's the fourth sign and maybe we're looking forward to the fifth song. We'll be a complete Taco revolution in the world would realize that piece happens into Tortilla. Yes I love it here for so yeah and. That's you know this package that we've been working on where it was kind of like suddenly not suddenly because obviously we're hearing about the whole trajectory of how this happened but it feels like now how in the US we always known that Mexico has its own food regions. It's you're gonNA find totally different food in the north and you're gonna find in the south and now it almost feels like we have have our own like Taco regions here in the US. Which I think is part of what makes it so interesting to eat tacos right now like going to Baltimore this weekend? And there's like these amazing macos that you told me about there and I was doing some research and I was like This is one of the fastest growing Mexican populations there. And can you tell me a bit about like what is sort of creating rating these different pockets. I it sounds like you're already practicing. You're talk literacy doing research and learning about the food. You're learning about the history. You're learning about the culture. Most importantly you're learning about the people. Yeah and I think that happens. All Foods There are hard to disassociate because as soon as you decontextualize a food. You remove the human element so with this one way thing thing about this of course exactly right. There's all the regional varieties of Mexican food in Mexico. And that tells you one thing about the migration patterns of folks who come from those regions and where they settle the United States it so in New York. We're able to find Tamales that are wrapped in banana leaves somewhat indication as I will these are folks probably either from Veracruz or maybe they're from Oaxaca but folks from Oaxaca migrate for specific areas a lot of the ways at least sociologists look at this as where There's a wave of migrants who first settled themselves and they sort of reach out to members of their family or social networks. So you'll find very easily here in New York people that come from the entire same hometown and you'll see some times restaurants called Quad Cinco for example where people come from a small town need formed sort of networks of people who Sometimes I end she when United States that might be their first job before they move on and sometimes opened up their own restaurant as well so to really really break it down. And once you realize that the regional varieties are in your town. It also tells you about where people have migrated from and case of New York. It's mostly folks from the region called the mixed tech with him exchequer. So those three states of Oaxaca Guerrero and web La we find a lot of really beautiful indigenous cuisine that has found its way to New York which is also another element of Mexican food. The amount of indigene tea and also the sometimes the resistance indicating that history. What does that mean? What do you mean by this? The best way to think about about this is like the eternal war between flour tortillas and corn tortillas. Yeah where do you stand on both like what do I can't. I have both guy. Of course course my preference because I grew up in southern Arizona and my mom is from Sonora. Is I grew up with flour tortillas. And that's me. It's not so much because I love the flavor. It's more like the feeling and the memory that saver but had tortillas what do you use as the oh well you see. Here's the tree. I mean I love Manteca But also We grew up with crystal L.. Yeah so I mean I'll do go. I would both but I have to be honest I can. I have a month. BECCA thirty I tell. Yeah and it's it's a good thing But the story though about the corn and the flower is away. We think about that when the Spaniards arrived when they conquered indigenous people when you conquer people conquered their language. You conquer their history and you try to conquer honcker their food because you really want them to hopefully assimilate but also be purchasers in the larger market. You were trying to expand in this case week. So the idea for them at least for the Spaniards manage their ideologies. That the reason why we could use because your food. If you like us you'll be like us so this also meant that for example didn't always worked case to try to eradicate corn but it was never going to go away we're people of the corn in Mexico and corn was worshipped and corn was revered in corn grew along with people and a bit large society so so even though there were Spaniards would say they would eat their flour tortillas at night when they had a few maybe two kilos going out for their tea they went out for their tacos. Really really yeah. Of course. Of course they were like everybody else because you can't deny how yummy delicious talk when it's when it's warm truly haven't eating talk constantly in the entire time I've been working on this packaging. I'm not even remotely sick of them. Took literally everyday. Yes I gotta ask you Kinda went through the fifty s period of where Taco's got sort of Americanized here in the US and as he wrote in the timeline there were some perhaps interesting. Shall we say moments where you there was a Taco TV dinner. That came with canned tortillas. which I think your comment on that was no comment? Say Have you ever tried to I only I heard legends about them. I've also heard legends of canned bread. which have can't the modest wasn't one of my finer moments? I was in college. That's the excuse I gave Yeah you know I think the way thinking about this and I think he does a really great job and talk. USA It's a kind of recurring pattern. Where Mexican food somehow somehow gets interpreted by another audience? WHO believes that they can make it better more efficient and more marketable and not always more delicious but actually really sometimes adapted to their needs but unusually market-centred needs so in the fifties where there was a burgeoning I think he I think this is like nineteen fifty s silicon valley? who was the Fast Food start up with southern California. Donald kind of started it all and people were making quick money But it was also. There was a lot of theft from competitors but the big story I think probably goes back to Taco Bell and you know that we have a couple of classes where we talk about talk my class. Yeah I mean you know Sunday conflicted. Because of course a lot of folks have their in their introduction Mexican food through Taco Bell of course and I respect and also even the hard talk eight. It's authentic it exists a real thing. It's American invention by Mexican and Tacos goes way back at any rate so Glenn Bill was trying. His hand added a few different start-up restaurants. Not doing so well doing okay. And he was having a hard time. I'd go selling some burgers and things and he noticed there was this Mexican can restaurant across the way from where he was working restaurants. All the meat loaf cafe still standing Cesar Chavez used to have meetings there he saw the long lines outside the a building and he decided I gotta go see what's going on they were selling Tacos are those that were of course hand fried with a toothpick so a lot of lot of time going into these. You know fast. Food really heavy into Greece the toothpick holding. It's holding it together before using a you fry. It's caused us to remember so you have to remember those two picture in there. Those forget take me to photograph. Yeah there you go. Bell was trying these tacos and you saw there was long lines all the time so he he started like sort of observing them observing or maybe spying and trying to figure out the recipe and going back to his own place and trying to perfect this recipe which is already extensively perfect. I yes but at any great the The movement was. How can I take these? Make them more marketable. Mass produce them and that became his the standard hard shell Taco. Now the question of about whether it's appropriation or innovation Ali that open but I think we stop hotels a pretty good story or recovers an interesting story but Taco Bell of course tells her own story on their website. They don't mention Meatloaf cafe. They don't mention it at all. No of course why yeah interesting so can you. Can you get down crunch rap supreme or is there like two hundred. You know I I mean I grew up. I'm from a very small town in southern Arizona less than ten thousand people and when Taco Bell opened when I was in second grade late eighties my brother got a job right away. He's one of the first employees and we were so excited because we had never been exposed to fast food Mexican food and to me where where I was at that stage I was really and more reverence to KFC at that time. Kentucky Fried Chicken and McDonald's and Burger King more than I was even my own mother's cooking and has a lot to save the kind of internalized allies racism. I had when I grew up to kind of dislike myself and my family but when there was this fast Mexican food where you can even get like their equivalent of happy meals. That kind of made me feel so proud route and it made me also realize that our food could be out there with everybody else's food but as I got older I came to realize a bit more the complexities and I also started turning more towards my family's food because I started becoming a lot more proud of myself and my family my my roots Do further education so now I guess older me I would still tell me like hey like Mexican pizza do it. And now I probably still would say do it but I would do with conscious inc about it. Think about yeah so. Is that sort of the conclusion that your class reaches when you talk about it with them or they have like a debate or anything like I think I think probably the greatest thing that the students takeaway is that they can look at food and they can put a face behind the food and realized food is one thing but it's the stories of people and how we show care and how we we also have food is political and to see that with our closest neighbor to the south has shares a long history of conquest but also migration and just the shared knowledge of ideas and trade. It's really important because especially when not just Mexican immigrants but a lot of immigrants from Central America. These days are being dehumanized to put a human face also puts. It's a human sense to what the urgency of this issue is and we bring about food. What could be more human than that right exactly? Well thank you now. I'm going to go into my rapid fire fire questions which we gotta we gotta do this all right so should we say all time favorite tiger she say top three which you feel. Well well you know actually. Let's just one pick one and you know and it's funny because I got this question once and I couldn't think is like why do I pick one TACO. But then I remember I had this. I'll probably one of my favorite tacos and it's not easy to find here in New York City but it was Taco with this kind of alone meet called she and my family. My father's family is from lower so find seen alot and food in New York City was really league tough but anyway this is a kind of long braised beef fried and then braised and has four different kinds of Chili and then topped on refried fried beans on a flour Tortilla so very different than some of the Llano food but also something that Because when I tasted reminded me of food I had growing up and probably because is the distance of the time it really brought me back. That experience was like really savoring. Yeah did your mom make food that good when you're going yet. Well yes kind of say when I grew up my my mom. My family have five children so at a certain point. My mom was a stay at home. Mom and that's when the everyday flour tortillas stacked up Dorothy Izzo butter all this great stuff then And then she started working. And that's when we started by more tortillas from the Tortilla Factory Dorothea factory at home too but every day though always beans every always uh-huh nevertheless which. What's the name of the place where you get this Taco? Can I go out and find it like as soon as this interview I think right now they actually move. It used to be called Dukla. Yes or no Wednesday and now I believe it's called Las Delicias Mikica and it's in Corona Corona yet junction boulevard. Okay and Yeah Actually Robertson. Ma Maybe writing about it pretty soon because he hasn't you'll audio there about a week ago and we're astounded. Oh Man yes I ever got there first before Robert Right so so what's your favorite Taco type if you had to pick like. Is it pistol or is it. What what would you choose if you just like had to only eat one type of Taco looked for the rest of your life? I know that would be like a fate worse than death. Wow you know I guess because I think about that one again i. I'm sort of conflicted because I'm pretty classic Carne Asada Especially like depending how it's grilled but then also outbound stories kind of like my yard stick to know like arises place all right but usually you know probably if I had to pick one I remember. Aw probably going to go out. Okay oh I said it made him on the record. Let's let's finish. Well actually tumor humor okay best. US City for Takas Woo. Wow well you know I think probably. La Of course but there are some cities cities that are doing. Some really cool things Tucson Arizona Right now they are UNESCO World Heritage Culinary site and that is really exciting because that's also Sonoran food but it's also it's a border city and so there's so much synergy there including the the Sonora style hot dog is one example But there's so many great cities that one city. That's really interesting right now. I've and watching his Dallas. Dallas is doing some incredible really great restaurants Revolver Taco loud is probably one of my favorites reno row house. Did this really speaking about the story. He did Bulbul store on trump. Understand anything like that ladies are octopus tentacles hanging off the sliding door. Yeah Yeah Wild. L. Outer Space People were taking pictures with their kids next to it thing anyway was so delicious and I never had that kind of slow Cook Savory Savory Octopus and it just yeah it was delicious so that kind of stuff is happening in Dallas and Dallas is as a place to really keep your eye on scene. Yeah and you're a big proponent of New York Arctic even though New York New York always gets this reputation as like the tacos suck in New York go to New York for Tacos but like you're here differ right. Of course I in fact I wrote something for eater. That's search if you think that the TACO was in New York Suck. You need to go to Public York. I really say like if you really want to have the the Taco experience in New York City you gotta go the outer boroughs. You GotTa go to Brooklyn. You gotta the Go-to Bronx you gotta go. Staten Island and you definitely got to go to Queens Particular Roosevelt Avenue in Corona. And you will. You'll be happy and we got some. We've got some tough representation of course with L. A.. Would I think we can hold our own here. Yeah that's right you can see out there with rick the other day so if you check out that video they made I think rick was was sent to make tacos plus Sara giant Tacos with the egg in them like a whole chicken egg right Rick I think he's these. Were the biggest tacos. He's ever seen. Yes so what would you compare them to size wise because he was assigned me holding on my hand it is the size of a plate literally is a plate. Ender is rice and sometimes talk with the Chili Relleno and me a slice of pork. Yeah I mean these are a full meal enough himself TACO situates. Yes definitely definitely and I think you know the way you can think of like how. How The New York slice got bigger and bigger competition TACO? Placenta was kind of going through this sort of similar Experience Right now. Yeah okay tacos per se. That's right. Yeah and then final question earliest Taco memory. ooh Well actually. I can tell you the first time I ever tried a Taco with that came with the lime. Soon as you say that you're like tell me more. Yeah it was. I think it was the first time I ever saw a talk. That came with the lime. I was a undergraduate at the University of Arizona and I I had grown up always with talk shows where I was from and I was. Yeah and it was not necessary just a Taco Bell Taco. But it's also oh my mom would make so somebody's in I went to know gala Sonora the nearest border town and we had on the street and they were small flour tortillas years with mesquite grilled Carne Asada. They came with the lime. And I'm like what do I do this. And it just squared on top and I didn't have anything else and it was like this heavenly experience experience and that's actually happened. When I was a freshman in college then it became a thing like I need to find more this closer in Tucson and then I discovered southside Tucson what O'Conner close bouquets and it just became like this Taco renaissance where I was asking my mom a lot of questions about the food she made and I think that was kind of natural curiosity? Now I think about it I I would have been the ideal student for Taco litters. Where was that class? So your opinion on the line on someone once told me that. Like the lime on the talk. They were like no. That's not that's not centric. People don't do the line and I was like is that I mean I mean it's just delicious. Yeah it makes sense to me. Yeah it was on the border and You know that place also put in Sonora. has its own culinary tradition but especially grilled beef and flour or at the top and so for me to have that. It was sort of like the hallmark thing this enormous do and my mom is inert so this was something where I could also certain sort of beginning to see that. No this is good. I've been taught not to lend like myself in this part of my background. But there's something here and it's something that makes me feel good and talk was make you feel good but when you know stocks are something something your people contributed to i. Think the wealth of mankind humankind. Yeah it makes you feel better about yourself. And that's actually something. I do with a lot of the Mexican students I worked because I worked with a a lot of young folks in high schools and middle schools to and really start thinking about how value family how we value care and I think through food is one way we can see the kind of ancestry treat at passes onto us in those stories. I mean we always think about times in our live special occasions food was somehow involved but most importantly the people who were sharing food worth you. We're always going to be there. And that I think is a way for folks are really start to see how this thing of Mexican food for example wants his decontextualize from the people is very dangerous. Yeah yeah well. Let's end on that note. I think And I hope that you check out our taco package where Stephen will bring you through all the key moments of Tacos in American history. And thank you so much Stephen Thank you hello. My name is Manuela Solace and today I'm reading. My Essay Tacos are my resistance. The morning after Donald Trump was elected president. I wrote out a list of things to prepare kids for the coming storm. I included included items such as how to fight with words. which rules are bankable how to break them on notice and how to be the kind of Mexican who people forget his Mexican at all? I realize now three years later that this list and how I conceived of it is flawed born out of fear rather than indignation a desire to hide it from the world's events rather than resist them. If I were to ride out a new list it would be much different and it would start with how to make Tacos us. After the climate strikes and local protests against trump's Muslim bands and is draconian immigration policies after shouting and marching in the streets treats at Lexington Kentucky and Williamstown Massachusetts. Cooking might seem like a weak form of resistance. We're like no foam at all but as far as I'm concerned -cerned teaching my kids how to cook not just any food but Mexican food and not just any Mexican food but the kind of slipshod tex-mex. My mother made me and my sister when we were kids. Might be the strongest form of resistance. I can give them. This food reminds them where they come from who they they are. More importantly to be proud of who they are. Because without this pride resistance kind of sustained resistance we need now is almost impossible to maintain maybe here you could formulate a metaphor the ever-present Taco adaptable crowd-pleasing resilient zillion pliable made with ingredients as simple as beans and rice or as extravagant as scallops or revive fried chicken and gravy or Korean Barbecue and Kimche not folded or data around practically any ingredient and suddenly that combination becomes a Taco. Maybe that's like Mexican to ever present dabble resilient resilient. But if I don't like this they'd roll their eyes or stare blankly. They'd say you're being weird again dad so instead I've decided to teach them to cook. I'm not sure which night lessons began. Maybe the one after trump told representative Alexandria el-Ghazal. Cortez go home. She was born in New York. Maybe the one when we found out a six child died in custody at the border. It's hard to say. Start to bleed together do these nights but on this night we started simply ground beef tackles. The boy was nine on stirring and pouring duty. Stir these beans on the stove for the salt into the become the kitchen. Smells like my mother. Mainland garlic and onions and Camille. I I give my son a wooden spoon in Sean. How to break up the ground beef sizzling in the skillet? The girl chops onions nervous when she grabs the knife. She's Loosey Lucy with it the way that gangly thirteen year olds are prone to be what she doesn't slip perfect teller. She slides them gently into the skillet. The Brown fresh teenagehood. My daughter's very aware of this strange political moment. When we lived in Kentucky she stood up to the fifth grade boys in your classroom practically every day? She argued against cruelty against injustice for protecting the most vulnerable in society immigrants. Refugees refugees of the poor argued so fiercely. The boys began scratching your name off of any list. Founded on whiteboards class rosters. Their way of trying to silence is Paul was a difficult year but not once did she back down or silence herself when it came to what she she believed was right. My son though still in elementary school is not far behind. But I worry that while my kids grabbed the large-scale large-scale problems of this moment in our country's history and are willing to go to the mat for their beliefs. They don't understand. The singular bearing this moment has on them specifically weekly. I worry that they don't realize that. WHAT THE PRESIDENT SAYS ABOUT MEXICANS THAT WE'RE raping drug dealers and thugs them to? I made a mistake for years ago wanting my kids to be the kind of Mexicans people forget a Mexican make make tunnel is one of my favorite things about me about us. Made Konno's are loving Erin full of Grit. We have a dark sense of humor and ability to laugh and cry in the same breath we know how to hustle. The most Mexican thing about me is the food I cook. which is the same food? My mother mother learned to cook from her mother. Did you Mike. It's do this too is my way of telling them. Look people didn't want your great-grandmothers year in some of those same people didn't want your grandmother here and some of those same people don't want us here either but here we still are. This is our food we. We're still us on this particular night. Whichever night it was? The meat is cooked ready after chopping onions. Our daughter made the whack-a-mole doc. Mola in our son started some more. I did the rest. The kids attention spans are limited and they quickly got bored of process the waiting but but when we bring the food to the table they both chime in. We helped we sit and eat when we talk about school. And what we WANNA do this weekend. We talk about things. Make US happy and save we talk about how good these Dhaka's are. We don't talk about trump and that's resistant good to the bone. APETITE FOOD CAST is produced and edited by Emma awards men with additional programming help from Kerry police and at least enemy now.

Your Last Meal With Rachel Belle

Rose McGowan, Taco Bell

"BAIRO SEATTLE. I'm Rachel Bell and this is your last meal a show famous people in the stories behind the foods they love most today on the program. Actor activist and musician rose McGowan. Rose has been in approximately one million movies. She started the TV show charmed, and she was one of the first to speak out about sexual assaults and expose. Harvey Weinstein at the beginning of the me too movement. She also just released her first album planet nine. Rose has been living in London so. She was thrilled when her favorite comfort food finally crossed the pond. They opened a Taco Bell in London. Why. They use black beans not do not mess with the Formula Ego when I was a teenager, my blood type was Taco Bell mild sauce, so it was a complete honored to have Taco bells, PR manager and self-described Taco Bell Historian on the show Matt Prince, is here to talk about everything from the Taco Bell Wedding Chapel in Vegas. The very first Taco Bell that opened in California in nineteen, sixty, two, the gentleman, came up and asked for a Tako. He didn't even know how to pronounce it. That was kind of the overall feeling of of Mexican food in the time. There really wasn't a lot of knowledge. Pronounced on the menu. It's all coming up in the story. GEICO Bell, but first my conversation with rose McGowan. There are TACO. Bell restaurants in twenty six countries outside of the United States, but the only market that they failed in is Mexico which is ironically where our little Taco Bell? Lover chose to write out the pandemic was up and I was like I'm GonNa. Go Beautiful. SIP The quarantine out there, and and pay a third of the rent in Mexico and and I've been coming to Mexico for twenty years, so we are you in Mexico? I'm in Cobo, which is about an hour outside of to loom and it's. Just a lot of Pyramids and jungle and Beautiful! That's bad, Wifi, but other than that. Rose had what many would consider an unorthodox childhood. She was born and raised in Italy, where her dad ran the Italian chapter of children of God. You know we'll call it. A cult what I grew up in, and that has a lot of negative connotations I grew up in a group, called the children of God and certainly did you know later on become quite dangerous and bad, but the original ideology, and why my parents joined, they were. were trying to live a utopian life, but I think ultimately because they come from the system, they couldn't really get free of the system, but the kids were raised including myself in a very interesting way in that we're just raised very differently from for most people kind of hyper educated was reading full books at two and a half I got dumber as the years have gone on. Don't worry, but I used to be very smart kid and. It's something that a lot of people like. Oh, so weird a Europe walls. We're how you live. Frankly according to Rose's memoir, her family left children of God started advocating for sexual relationships between adults and children. Her Dad took the kids and move the family to the United States, but before rose left Italy. It says you were a child model in Ben, beanie and I just love it. It's called Vogue. Bambini isn't that cute very cute and they have a vogue for kids there so stylish in Italy. Yes, but I was a boy, I played like I always had the boy role in my sister, daisy, fluffy, blond hair and blue eyes, so in your pictures I was always like I was holding like flowers, and giving into her, but I always kind of had BICA surly expression on my face. A little bit like this sucks. I might giving daisy flowers looking back I'm like Oh, the cute, little boy! That's what my role was, so it wasn't like because I was a pretty little girl I was A. A child model. I think it was more those pretty boy, and then you came to the US when you were ten landed in Eugene. Talk about your time in Portland and your involvement with the drag community, and then moving to Seattle your whole Pacific Northwest Life Pacific northwest. Life was real. The first place actually landed was a place called gig harbor Washington when I was ten and I had to go to a school I went from a Hippie Commun- to a military school in Washington State Haida very redneck. Redneck kind of area, and that was a really horrible transition, and that's Kinda when I invented my on imaginary friend, which I called planet nine, then new gene was like like I did my first head of acid at the eighth grade dance. A you know in middle school. Someone's like you WanNa. Listen it like sure like hallucinate is until you actually do it. First of all I'm of course than it changed the course of my life. My Mom's husband was like she has the makings of a drug addict. Addict, let's lock her up. So I got locked up. Rehab was supposed to be there for a long time and I was like I kept telling them. You can't addicted hallucinogens first of all, but I didn't even know that yet. They would be like you're a drug addict. People at the Rehab and I'm like no not like your denial like this is so good I cannot get out of this so I scraped, and I ran away with to drag Queens now we recall them Trans Women Trans Girls. But back down there was called drag queens you know. And they became my very fast friends Mike Protectors. loves and and I actually I was homeless by thirteen for almost a year, and though I got really bored of being hungry, tired at the end, I had a lot of fun. It was weird like huckleberry. Finn but drag Queens until I. Mean you grew up in Italy, but you were really young when you left. Do you have a connection to the country and to the food culinary? Like things you remember from when you were a kid? Oh. Yeah, God. I mean I've pretty much lived on just pasta. That was my Jan by when I came to America. I cry because I knew my life as I knew it at least food, wise over because some church lady from the school techniques Danny's than I didn't know if that was now is like what they had pictures of everything native picture of plate, of Spaghetti I very excited and. Speaking, rapid fire Italian I pointed at it, and ordered it, and it came in. It was like one congealed Blob of Yuck. A started to cry so I was like. Never give me to say that said England has terrible food. They need to get it together. Still I that it had changed with Oto lame. Maybe some of the fancier restaurants, but if you're like low key ordering in disgusting I, go to bed, hungry a lot actually I don't know how to cook really well, so I do read Hungary rose. There is no reason to go to bed hungry. There's toast there cereal. There's cheese and crackers. There's apples and peanut butter. Actually I have to confess and Laura is here with. With me recording, so I want to know what what your go to would be for like if it's late at night, and you're hungry, and you don't WanNa Cook anything so last night I was in that position and I didn't WanNa make anything I didn't want to snack on anything unhealthy, because I'd already brushed my teeth, so this was like a real serious snack situations so. I jumped out a can of corn that I had bought for Corentin. You know at the beginning in March when we were teenagers were corn, corn and. This is like one of those things I bought when I thought we had to stock up and dumped a whole. Can of corn and a bowl and I put some butter and Sultan and a eat it in my bed and I felt like it was a very sad snack, but also it was kind of good I love corn. I'm fully on board with. This is on bashing corn fashion. That's basically just popped popcorn. Writer prides. It is a crazy analysis I don't think so I. Think it's actually science so rose next time. You think you're GONNA. Go to bed hungry. Cana corn. Yeah, you heard it here on our. You got endorsements. Fashions. All right. We're GONNA. Take a quick break, but when we come back rose McGowan's last meal. Rose McGowan grew up in Italy, but she moved to the US when she was ten years old, so her last meal is an amalgamation of these two childhoods. It'd be chicken Milanese made in Milan preferably, so it's done right. Sauteed, Spinach, Wisconsin and olive oil, roasted new potatoes. Rosemary all oil and probably a nice. I don't know a guy red wine from a region in Italy that I. Really like the Super Tuscan a great wine but I would also. My alternate one would be Taco Bell to being Britos no onions add sour cream one hard shell, Taco and medium. Pepsi thank you. Okay, I was going to ask you about this because when I was googling around I always Google the person minute interview, and then I add the words food and eating after their name, and the only thing about food that came up for you is Taco Bell over and over again. Yeah, la I mean they have a Taco Bell Hotel. Go on, yes, in Palm Springs California. I'm like I must go there. Day of Taco Bell Room Service is not Mexican food is Taco. Bell's very specifically its own thing and And I I I was not allowed to eat anything like that growing up at all, but when I was homeless, the kids I was running with would eat Taco bell. We'd say we'd turning cans or things like that for the money back for the ten cents, an organ ten cents, and that's when I fell in love a Taco Bell, and it's still like my main comfort food, and in fact I did a documentary called citizen rose its own Amazon, but there's one scene in my ox. Call me. She's like rose. Something really serious was going on in that scene Ronan Farrow and fact, Checker New Yorker. We're telling you that you know your life have been infiltrated by on Israeli, spy data. Steal your book, but she's like honestly rose all I. could focus on was that you are wearing a Taco bell sweatshirt? Did you have to wear a Taco Bell? Sweatshirt on TV. I'm like yes. Yes, I do well. Just you know you know how you can change the background when you're doing zoom meeting. I did yesterday. That made it. Look like I was at Taco Bell. So that is an option for you go, yes. You're out this background thing I don't know why we'll let me do it. It's really annoying. Ask someone. Help I couldn't figure it out either so good. Is that been your? Has that been your order since you were thirteen years old? Yes, and have you tried anything else or did you just cling to that one and you love it forever. Yeah, one time I tried something else and it was that Damn Doritos Loco Taco, and I was like that is so disgusting I'm never doing that. And then finally it was like six months along, and I was like fine I'll try it the only time we got really quite ill from Taco. Bell it just that was too much for my stomach and do you do any of the hot sauces I I like just the hot sauce. Only one packet on each Rita I love this so much, so this is kind of like the highs and lows because your first. First Choice. Is this meal that you'd prefer to have in Italy, and then the second one is any Taco Bell and America does that kind of describe you in any way, high and low person? Yes, exactly, that is really interesting, an astute observation question and I have to say my accountant is like you spend the least amount of money on food of anybody I work with, and I just thought I don't really understand the concept of like spending a lot of money on lavish meals in wine, because it just goes away of course like a nice meal, but If I'm in Italy or somewhere with amazing food, I'll eat a lot, but otherwise I can eat to survive I could take a pill. Not even care like I. don't care. Kanye Lot. I'm one of those people I like candy I like like Lassie Taffy now later. Anything fluorescent I. Really like for her last meal rose McGowan wants either chicken Milanese eaten in Milan with Garlicky, sauteed, spinach and roasted rosemary, new potatoes glass of red wine made in Tuscany or Taco Bell. No onions at center cream, one hard shell, Taco and medium. Pepsi thank you there is something called a third place, so your first place is your home. Your second place is where you work. If you have a job, and then your third place is where you spend your third biggest chunk of time and in Highschool, my third place was Taco Bell, or maybe just the Taco bell parking lot because we would go through the drive through and then just hang out in the parking lot hours. Hours, my friends and I would go to Taco bell almost every day after school and I think it's pretty common to have a standard, or they're just like rose has asked some friends of the show to share their standard Taco bell orders to being burritos sauce, extra cheese, extra onions to beats crunchy TACO. SUPREMES I without fail order the Mexican Pizza Dr Pepper in a true Mexican pizza with light. Meet to Crunchy tacos lots of mild sauce. The burrito easy on the onions and a coke. That was Natalie. Who is one of my high school? Best friends and it's funny. What you think is cool in high school. One of the things that I thought was really cool about. Natalie was that we would go through the drive through we would order. We would eat our food in the parking lot, and then I remember the first time she said this. I thought it was so cool. She said I like to eat and then I like to go back through the drive through and get cinnamon to us for dessert and I thought. This was so classy to do double drive thru now. We're having our second course of desserts. All Right? Let's us to one more recording of Kassy's classic Taco Bell Order. My Standard Order is a number. Ten was one of the Tacos soft-shell instead of hard show. Add tomatoes to the tacos, but do not add sour cream and medium Dr Pepper however in a very very sad turn. TACO bell continued. Combo number ten about one month ago, today, thoughts, prayers and condolences to Cassie as she gets through this emotional time. Last regular Taco Bell Order thank you for asking is left over from my college days. I would get a cheesy to crunch. Add Sour cream and a chicken cassidy, and no green Sauce Cup for water. That's when you were eating inside. And for those of you who don't know I have a sour cream. Addiction and I've always been obsessed with the large metal industrial sour cream gun at Taco bell uses to squirt sour cream all over their food so I talked about this. So often that several years ago, an ex-boyfriend plan to surprise me with one for Hanukkah, but he said that he didn't get it for me. Because it costs more than one hundred dollars, and it seemed like a very expensive joke, and now you don't have to ask me why. We're not a couple anymore. Anyway enough about me and the sour cream gun that I will never own. Let's talk about Taco Bell. I called a Matte Prints Taco Bell Senior Public Relations, manager, and unofficial historian I think back to when I was a little child and asked me what I wanted to be. When I grew up, it was always Taco Bell Historian, so I think of I followed that path pretty well. I used to have a boss. You're at the radio station that I work at new called me Rachel, Taco, Bell and every time I write TACO. Bell is spell. Spell it like my last name. Right TACO. The E. L. L. E. and I'm telling you this. Because Taco bell is named after someone Taco Bell is named after the company's founder Glen Bell Yes so Glen Bell was a pretty, Amazing Guy, an entrepreneur at heart his story. I think we can probably start. When he served in World War Two, he was a marine and he served on the USS, Rochambeau and on that ship he served as. Basically, a cook and a waiter, and so that's really where he learned how to cook. That's where you learn about food supply numbers service. All of those things kind of though he would later help him and producing restaurants after Glen. Bell left the Marines. He came home and opened his first business. A hotdog stand called Bellas. Drive in in San Bernardino the same city where McDonald's opened its first. First restaurant, and he did for a couple of years ended up selling it opened up a new stand that sold hot dogs and hamburgers that stand eventually went onto sell tacos over the course of a couple years it was across the street from a family owned Mexican restaurant and Glenn Really Fell in love with the food and the culture and thing one of the best stories that we've heard from. that he's told that is the first TACO that he sold. He put on the menu for nineteen cents, and the gentleman came up and asked for a Tako. You didn't even know how to pronounce it. That was kind of the overall a feeling of of Mexican food in the time there really wasn't a lot of Jr, so for him to kind of bring it in. In and make it more available with something that he was really passionate about, and and and so he did that, but Matt wants to be clear TACO. Bell is not claiming to serve authentic Mexican cuisine. We try to be really careful to ensure. That were especially now more than ever. This is not of course strict. Mexican cuisine The cheesy Gordy to crunch is not something. Something I believe is going to be making in the family kitchen, and we understand that we want to make sure that we're respectful of that, but I think at the time in one, thousand, nine, hundred, sixty, two, even into the seventies, eighties that for a lot of people was their first foray into Mexican inspired food even up until the seventies, there were actually pronunciations underneath the. The menu items, so you can actually see. It's Taco or Burrito, because again people are not seeing them in a lot of places before, but back to the TACO bell. Timeline Glenn opened a Mexican inspired place, called Taco Tia, and then after a few years he closed that, and he opened up L. Taco, and then he closed that down, and you're like Oh my God. What is he going to open? Taco Bell Than Nineteen Sixty two, he opened up a restaurant called TACO. Bell nineteen sixty five had the first Franchisee, and then it grew from there, but the first restaurant in nineteen, sixty two was about the size of a two car garage Call it numero UNO It was operating in Downey California up until the mid eighty s in the mid eighties. Taco bell left the building and many other restaurants occupied that space over the years until the building was set to be demolished in two thousand fourteen, and we ended up saving the building week before it was to be demolished, and raise the building from its foundation, put her on a flatbed truck, and it from down toward headquarters in Irvine were currently says okay, so earlier rose mentioned the Taco Bell Hotel which is a real thing, but unfortunately it was kind of a one. One off weekend we launched this last year. It was hot. It was in Palm Springs. We had about seventy rooms that we took over at a local hotel and everything from the soap to the wallpaper to the pillows to the pool was themed out Taco Bell and Redone. Re skinned synchronized swimmers with hot sauce packet swimsuits room service was all Taco Bell and we had about I'd say close to four hundred folks come through over the six day period. It's sold out within two minutes by the time we put it up for availability. So that's pretty much beyond say. Levels of sellout times. Get your nails done with Taco Bell. Are you can get fade? Put into your hair which I did and if anyone's wondering and takes about three weeks for a fade to com- completely grow in. So had the Taco Bell Logo Etched in my head for mine daughter's preschool orientation, which was great. The hotel was temporary, but you can always have a Taco Bell. Wedding is true and the Taco Bell Cantina in Los. Vegas you get married in was little as four hours. You can order a Taco bell winning. Winning the menu same way you would cheesy Gordy to crunch and in four hours and little as four hours. You can have the fish be there. You get swag you get. A cinnabon delights cake. You get tacos. Of course. You get Baja blast. You get everything you need to have an amazing wedding. And we launched that, and it did so well that we actually had to expand the space and provide a larger space for the weddings because we ended up doing so many. It's been running now for a one. One say two years and we've done close to two hundred weddings, and it's been pretty spectacular. What is the most popular menu item? Most popular menu item big surprises, just the original crunchy TACO number, two number three are the bean and cheese, Burrito and then the soft Taco is another of the top three beyond the basics. Get into other creativity like the doritos. locos TACO is in the top five as well as things like the cheesy Grenada Crunch, which is my personal favorite. That's my favorite, too. Oh! Oh so good. Will you have to do? Is You have to get a Doritos? locos TACO inside the cheesy. Gordon to crunch. That's the that's the secret. Why am I just finding this out now? Years after I mostly stopped eating fast food. If you have a special off menu order I, want to hear about it. Send me a message on Instagram to your last meal podcasts. Okay time for a break, but when we come back rose shares the reoccurring dream, she has about a particular carbohydrates. We'll be right back. A. A. An actor for decades rose just released her first album called planet nine i. read that you said that you're kind of done with Hollywood rightfully. So after the traumatic experiences that you've had, and you described yourself as a multimedia artist writer and thought leader. Is this kind of a transition to move away from Hollywood? TV, film, absolutely you know, and I think I had to kind of burn it down and destroy it. It before I could be free to be who I wanted to a because I. Remember right around the time. Lindsey Lowe handmaiden album back in the day I was like those right around the time I wanted to make an album when I was like. nope can't because it will not be understood, perceived correctly, and my work I take very seriously, and I put a lot of thought and effort into it and. A lot of complexity goes into it. You know detailed sound design, and all that kind of stuff and I just thought Oh my God will be perceived Lindsay. Lohan or Russell Crowe like an actor that's trying to sing and I'm. I'm not really. I'm trying to offer kind of a more immersive healing experience, definitely not trying to pop star. She named the album planet nine after her childhood. Imaginary friend or I guess Imaginary Planet. You know like when you creating imaginary friend or world. University yourself to live in when you're younger. Younger as life goes on, we tend to kind of forget about it in then six years ago. Astronomers you know, I'm just watching the news and all they found an named it planet, nine and I just thought why, and that's demoted Pluto, even though I think they've put it back because of popular demand, but we all know it's not real planet. Nine is the planet and I know this is a weird jump, but I was like maybe I'm strange, but I was like I need to make music for my planet. And, so that's said about to do. You wrote on the website that you're knocking tore it You're making it more for inexperience, and there are actually instructions on the website. Lay down closer is kind of a meditating process. Can you describe how you want your album to be consumed right? The first consumption I really highly recommend that people do lay on their backs. shut their eyes. Preferably you know in the evening and just get comfortable, and it's thirty eight minutes long. I personally have never been able to meditate twice in twenty years five minutes each time. I can't sit sound makes me more meditative, certain sounds and I just thought I could make a really amazing piece of art that could heal me and dead, and helped me stay sane during some of the hardest times of my life and a a lot of worship public saw. And right now like honestly sitting here on I was like I. Think Now's the time to release planet nine. Because we can't travel outside, we can travel inside. That's deep man. I kinda. Go back to go out on a food. Related note I have dreams about bread, unlike imagine like bread chasing after may like pieces of it. Trying to squish man I start running through the field, and there's like one piece standing up hopping after me, and I look at the crest above that one bread, and now there's all these slices running for me or hoppy. However bread moves. Have you tried to analyze it and think about what it means? No, I think it's Kinda funny because it's actually like not a nightmares much. That is kind of don't get squished, but I tend to have were streams that and have for a long time. I like bread. Maybe that's I once fell asleep with a slice of bread under my pillow, so maybe that's it. Of course that's it. It's infiltrating your dreams, and maybe God is trying to get revenge on you, 'cause it's like stop squashing us in your mouth or we're going to squash you. Yeah, maybe this is the breads revenge.

By that math, Instagram is worth $150B Chipotles Taco Bell-ification. Instagram owns Facebook. Spotifys acquires the Ringer

"Nick this jammed is is next daily. It is Thursday February six. This is the best one yet. We're talking to Tbo y not the best one deadly snack right now who is eating at your scrolling instagram and listening to us on spotify. You're going to see why we think. Okay let's kick it off with spotify. It just announced another earnings report and made another podcast position. time it's acquiring the ringer and it all comes down to creating a gated. Did Guards Liberation Not a secret garden Bruce springsteen making I tried singing that we didn't record that Second Story Jack where we got some particularly wild wild info about instagram turns out. The Graham is twenty five percent of facebook's revenues also. Yeah it's on facebook. Everybody should know that. Now we've got to see eh which is more generous. Yeah instagram or Youtube two subsidiaries that we just learned details about third and final storage. We got she'll Polish. Sales growth. was shockingly shockingly delete. You're you're looking at this thing. Our faces smell like apologised covering the recent barbeque. Oh we're looking at the TACO bell affiliation strategy of of Japan. You're on a pure L.. Your Body after hearing this one. There's a lot of juicy nece now. smackers is the third day of the teaboy the annual awards for businesses. Are we doing a gift bag for this. By the way Jack what kind of a gift bag the Oscars they give you like a rolex a week on a yacht and I think a pilates instructor pretty high gift to get out there and get back. Yeah yesterday winner was CEO in a leading role right and that is going to our friend. Adam Newman of we work. Although Carlos gone from now in Nissan was a close second. He couldn't listen cause the fugitive stuff. But Trust is Carlos. You're up there man now. The Oscars has award for best foreign film. So third third teaboy award is best foreign firms. Yes we've got best foreign firm which company based outside the United States has performed the most. Interestingly over the last night we know what. You're thinking Alibaba Amazon of China. Yep has done that much. They haven't done that much so we didn't include. LVMH luxury retailer. In France. They acquired tiffany. It's true but it's hard to pronounce their French. Lead include that we thought about Ferrari in Italy. It's a pretty high end pretty expensive car. But where's your self driving affordability. When is the thirty two thousand dollars model coming out? Ferrari we didn't include for and finally we considered Lululemon based in Vancouver Canada. And the reason we did choose it is We actually nominated that for something else this week so they were already already nominated for best product and support with family get so far loose so instead we've decided a different set of four nominees for best foreign oriented firm to win the t the first nominee is ab inbev the owner of Budweiser which is based in Leuven. Belgium for Spike Seltzer and other beverage. Innovations second is adidas which is based in probably Ho- Insurance House in Germany who stock has risen sixty percent in the last year and partnered partnered with beyond say. Yes they did for the park line. Third Up is spotify which is based in Stockholm Sweden. Basically for nominated for other reasons. We're we're about to lay out when we cover them in a story today and our forth nominee for best foreign firm is lucky and coffee. Based in China they have tripled the number of stores and six xt the amount of revenue. We really got robotic stairwell trying to be an envelope. I'm going to be an envelope is into heart. You're doing the only good job. snappers vote for best foreign firm at Robin Hood Snacks on twitter. I think we've got a thousand votes two days in a row. Let's make it through. Let's hit our three stores in this net. Daily Bahir Brain Candy. They don't reflect the views of robinhood family. Still live from just so recommending. Any securities is not a research report or investment advice. NATTA offer or sale of a security. That's this next digestive business financial. LLC member FINRA SLASH SIPC our first story spotify. Five just acquired the Ringer Aka the ESPN of the future. That's what spotify calls the ringer. But this is the heart of spotify's gated garden straps love that alliteration interational spotify mid twenties to early thirties. Not Talking about what we mean there key metrics consistently grow at the mid twenties to early thirty percentages year-over-year for users premium subscribers revenues. They rose thirty two percent twenty nine percent and twenty four percent Mitchell. Last quarter mid thirties right. But it still unprofitable just like mid Twenties and early thirties person who is still living in his parent's basement. Let's just put it. That is losing money any impact because it's invested over a half billion dollars in podcast. CEO Daniel Eck apparently a big Ben Shopper when it comes to the acquisition game this. This guy has a serious podcast. Shopping problem doesn't wait for Black Friday. If he sees them audio that he likes he hears it and then he buys. Let's talk about the PODCAST company. spotify has acquired in the past year. Gimblett which is a variety of podcast park cast which is dozens of more true crime and like Horoscope podcasts anchor which which is like a diy podcasting software and now spotify announced yesterday. It acquired the ringer. A media. Company focused on podcasts and sports news sounded by a former Marie. Espn Guy who got kicked at ESPN. Because he was too tough on the portal. NFL He said something. Bad about Roger Goodell also. This is another Boston. Sports Guy. A WHO's a successful sports digital media. Andreas like boss. Dual something must be in the lobster. There Dave Portnoy Bill. Simmons both had successful sales rates now. L. Let's talk about what fascinated jack which is the gated garden strategy. Ours not theirs behind spotify's acquisitions. The gated garden strategy involves showing something beautiful to everyone for free but eventually putting up a gate making people show that also involves the abilities gated garden five times fast. Which Jackie Guard gain? Amy Are capable of doing Bill Simmons. podcast that's the key. podcast of the Ringer Gimblett podcast. Currently you can listen to all of spotify his own podcast and end pretty much anywhere mostly for free. You can listen on Apple. You can listen on breaker. You can listen on Google podcast. You can listen on stitcher. These podcasts are like beautiful chrysanthemums lilacs roses in a pretty garden in the middle of town. Jack we're really biting off the words that are pronounced today. Chrysanthemums these podcast. Cats are like a public good. Anyone can listen on any platform. But here's the things knackers these podcasts. They're not exclusive to spotify yet. Even though spotify owns them. They're not exclusive to spotify. But Nick and I expect a shift by spotify to make these podcasts. That they've acquired available only on spotify doesn't mean they're gonNA charge you for them behind a paywall. It just means you can only get them if you download the spotify. What we're saying is spotify is going to build a gate around that beautiful garden? Wouldn't that you're obsessed with with all the flowers who does like a tulip and they figure enough people have fallen in love sniffing and check out those flowers smell the they will be willing to download the spotify APP in order to keep listening. Trust as on the two so jack what's the takeaway for our buddies over at spotify. But if I could trigger podcast war against Apple Apple Apple and spotify they are the clear number one and number two when it comes to podcasting platform modify just acquired it's espn by the way that's what it referred or two as the ringer. This is the today spotify just acquired the ESPN. What is Apple's response? Are they gonNA maybe by the athletic. Yeah they're going to arm themselves selves with some sports podcast day by the actual. ESPN just like in the video content. Whatever was like I gotta get Seinfeld? I gotta get Seinfield Seinfeld exclusively on my platform. We could be on the dawn of a podcast content war. Some podcasts could end up just on apple and some podcasts could be just on SPA pollock world. We're podcast chew sides for our second storage. Jackie take a photo of me over here. Instagram is way wealthier and allow more more selfish than its cousin. You is that Shaam bribe. It's your real. I like Schaumburg because it's a jeans thing you can wear if you don't like jeans doesn't feel like jeans kind of looks like jeans. Actually that is G. You're aware as photo all right back to the story is instagram being more selfish or is it you to being more generous. Jack and I are having that like Greek philosophical debate over here because we got some fascinating information about instagram is really hard cast we have debated what is the best merger and acquisition of all time. All right we're talking like best value for your money of a number. One candidate is facebook applying instagram in two thousand twelve for one billion dollars. The other option here is google acquiring youtube in two thousand and six for one point. Six billion the third option is the Yankees Acquiring Babe Ruth in one thousand nine thousand nine hundred for one hundred twenty five thousand dollars Babe. Ruth would've loved sack daily. Just want to point that now report from Bloomberg this week confirms to us that Instagram for a billion dollars is definitely the winner. Best Acquis now. snappers this comes to US courtesy of PF w. t. m.. According to people familiar with the matter people those ads that you encounter in your instagram. Feed for like a Casper knockoff. Cough mattress you got to sleep on this thing. All of those ads last year for instagram generated twenty billion dollars of ads the ads that were Pitching v Neck sweaters even though neither of us wants V we next sweaters instagram. Know me better figure it out. More of my data she. That's not my style by the way that twenty billion dollars from instagram. That is a critical number two. No because it is twenty. Five percent of facebook's total revenue right so facebook has his core APP oculus virtual reality had it's got what's most popular messaging thing in the world. Yeah totally and it's got in scrimped and instagram is a quarter of the total revenue against knackers to go back to the acquisition from eight years ago. That was just for one billion dollars. INSTAGRAM was purchased for just one billion dollars and now it's twenty five percent arguably a facebook facebook's worth six hundred a billion so you could argue that instagram is worth one hundred fifty billion and it got acquired for one bill and remember snacker. Jack and I love to hammer this hone. FACEBOOK facebook is an advertising comey. It bakes money basically just on. ATS Now finally instagram. Makes Twenty billion a year in ads for comparison the New York Times arguably the leader in news. They made less than two billion less than one tenth of Instagram last year and that was for both ads and monthly subscription. So Jack what's the takeaway for buddies over it instagram. Youtube is way more generous than instagram. Let's throw up. Your revenue scoreboard here because it appears that instagram twenty billion dollars in revenues news is beating Youtube fifteen billion dollars in revenue sort. It's actually much less close than it actually further behind when you dig a little deeper Youtube Hoop shares a big chunk of that fifteen billion in ad revenue with the video youtube stars on its plateau. snacker let's say Jack Launches a Youtube show of him just pronouncing flower names. Starting with Chrysanthemum. Wacko Jacko done youtube. So the best if he gets one thousand subscribers and at least four thousand hours of viewing for this wonderful wonderful channel he can start making money off of it that shared with him from Youtube. That's right if you hit that threshold if you guys subscribe to Wacko Jacko sniffs Flowers on Bluetooth divided that threshold. Youtube will share ad revenues with me instead. INSTAGRAM keeps all the ad revenues for itself Youtube shares. There's instagram keeps four third and final story. Jack UNWRAP The tinfoil off. Me Over here. Chipotle as sales surged because of Taco bell advocation Chambray is aluminum foil. What do you wear? I'm just happy that it looks like Denim and I don't have to feel done. Let's get back to the TACO Bell. Advocation of triple snacker. We we have a stat for you that Jack and I found fascinating this was from chipotle as quarterly earnings report. which came out yesterday? Same store set with your sales at stores open open at least a year not the new stores with a lot of excitement. Same store sales at AAA rose by thirteen point. Four percent last quarter. That is insane that is nuts. Can we for the food industry into contact. Let's say the average AAA restaurant sold one hundred burritos last year following it this year the average Chabal I sold two hundred and thirteen point. Four buried marinas are good but are they thirteen point four burritos better. You don't get jumps like that. Who'd industry good calcul little growth but thirteen percent? Jack and I thought that's we jumped in snacks and wanted to give you guys a little bit of a comparison here. McDonald's most recent same store sales growth was five point nine percent Russian. Half of triple shake shack was just two percent. AFC Three Percent Pizza Hut was flat. I didn't even move Taco bell four percent target which is just like a retail store store brick and mortar location. They're not really selling fast food. Four point five percent seriously brick and mortar physical stores to jump thirteen point four percent especially in the food industry. That is awesome. We know the GUAC is extra and we're breast now. What's driving this growth is the Taco bell advocation of Cipolla Taco Bell vacation that is using tacky Taco bell strategies to grow fast compared to port lay with Taco bright ones a little bit more premium than the other one's a little more fun than the TACO bells? A little bit more like sweatpants late night swept past show up as you are Chapelle as little bit more like Khakis maybe oppressed these throw a comb through to have chipotle you police more Prince William Taco bells more Prince Harry. They should run with that marketing campaign. The reason behind this Taco Bell vacation of AAA is because of the new man. Incharge has been around for like a year and a half two years nickel is the CEO of AAA he worked at Taco Bell before this. Yeah not like in the kitchen. He was like an executive at Taco and the TACO Cordell affiliation has three key features. I is viral food. Second is freaky convenience and third is crazy marketing okay. So here's how Taco Bell did all three of those first. When it came to viral food doritos locos tacos Dorito part Taco is a viral had? One wants it was at two. AM on Fourteenth Street New York. I don't think you're allowed to have it before seven seven. PM Second Free Convenience late night convenience. At taco bell is like religious. Get this knacker's the status wild twenty percent of all late night fast food eater nationally is he didn't add a Taco bell is incredible envy frozen. Pizza Industry does not like that staff the third and final key to Taco Bell vacation attention is the crazy market and you have a Taco Bell Hotel you have Taco Bell Beach Towels. You had a look like the little hot sauce bell t shirts that they didn't a collaboration hyphen with urban outfitters. With the take so jack what's the takeaway for our buddies over at your Polish your needs to nail the third element of Taco Bell. Chipotle chipotle's latest earnings have shown that they're inc two of those. The first is viral. Harney Sada was a limited time. Meet at triple. Yeah now. It's coming permanent boom. They're looking. I I par if you know of anyone lets you. Poland also came out with a viral food in case Oh Blanco which is Spanish right that stands for white case it stands for white case. And they're they're coming out with more of it they're teasing it at their next viral heights and that was the first like freaky conveniences the second element Taco Bell Foundation. They're adding one hundred fifty two Portland's which is a great name for a drive through lane if your restaurant is called. Basically these are speedy digital or pickups and digital sales police have searched seventy eight percent. You can order off the APP. That's crazy convenient but that that brings us to the third leg of Taco Bell Foundation which is a crazy marketing. Move Your Move Aaa. We're still waiting Jack. In your whip up the takeaways force over there. spotify has acquired the ringer arming themselves with sports. PODCAST for potential podcast. War The gated garden. Your move apple your move. Second-story instagram makes a quarter Of facebook's revenue it's a lot more profitable than youtube and more selfish third and final story chapel has the premium elements of barbeque. ooh But the hacky elements of Taco Bell Gordeeva crenshaw go belva -cation. That's helped sales rise eight freakish thirteen point four percent last quarter now time for our snack. Fact tweeted him by Trevan Deliri- from San Jose California Big Sharks Fan. Youtube was originally meant as a dating site named tune in hookup. Guess you'd like record a video of yourself you know being being yourself this is being yourself yourself being sexy. Staggers Jack unpack. This went after the five in the meantime. If you've got other snack packs tweet them. Are We talk about a strategy shift. I mean they made five billion in revenues last quarter as surveyed punts. Doubt was not doing here. You can't erase what's on the five snacking. Vote for best foreign firm get hired Robin Hood snacks on twitter. Trying to be sexy when you do we'll suit of my always be sexy this is Jack. Nicholson Stock Valley Bob. I own stock Amazon.

Why do you not four hours unhealthy healthy? I and then when I got it depends ironically. It was like how do you feel up? These things called CARBOHYDRATES IN EXODUS. One of the best ways to fill that number. Also you're reaching your carb. Intake from soda is probably not the healthiest thing. Waste but it was difficult interesting. I will only ever drink soda. I'm drinking alcohol. You know like a little Jack and coke or Taco Bell Mountain Dew Baja blast is to. How do you not drink soda though when you eat like fast food and other things like pizza? I have to combine it with a Soda Pepsi or something or Coke Gas bubbles. I Made I can't eat McDonald's without a coke about that advertisers shifts in my head because I'm eating McDonalds I go. I'm going to have water what Yeah Melissa. By the way my cup of Coke has to be like wet on the outside perfectly. Beat it it has to be yes or or or like an ice tea unsweetened. Wow so disciplined. You're a masochist. Why would you do such a thing? I just to make myself feel better about myself. That crazy I drink water with practically everything. Now you're healthy. Yeah I feel weird eating or drinking soda now like last night. It was really really late and everything was closed. So he's got some McDonalds overworking here and he got me a coke and I was like. Oh Yeah I forgot about this with this fucking delicious. I only drink like this much of it in the big ass cops bigalow wasted words like on and I don't drink so it's bad for me and it's like the Guy Downing Hennessy. So true my ass about water and they drink all kinds of shit right while I put this poison in you know. What's amazing though? Is that okay? So let's talk about taking corn. Taking Quan Quan has somehow as a baby. He doesn't like in and out correct not really likes McDonald's. So why the how the fuck did that happen? How are they that good at advertising and branding that the already reached him as a crash? Your Burger. Yeah and then the now the Ranji to give you guys some context. This is what's crazy about. So we know he loves me. Donald Right every time we drive by. He sees the Golden Arches but Madonna gets goes crazy. And when I'm on a diet it's easier for me going in and out and custom order some crazy like four patty and lettuce protein. Yeah and it's on my was get him a meal too so I try to get it as close to start off with what I thought. It'd be tasty for him which it'd be like an animal style. Hamburgers extra sauce in there and just cheese onions but after a couple of times of him eating it on my this is way too. Adult doll for him doesn't care about this and he doesn't go crazy over. Weight does McDonalds which is just simple ketchup mustard pickles. So Annika sprinkle of the onion dissect. Whatever that so I get them that. I can that. Exacting ketchup mustard no spread. And I give them and he'll go like this is drops it on my. What THE FUCK. He knows. Different friends or you noticed. Let's check this out. Do you get happy meals for. You'RE GONNA McDonald's yeah now we do check it out. So I didn't know that Hollidge and the report was the. It was a class about seduction and human sexuality was one was not happy with the classes human sexuality. I get Horny at the McDonalds. I did a report on. How businesses like seduce you knowing and you know as a little kid. You go to McDonald's because you want the happy meal and Manhattan exactly and when you get older you associate being happy and getting this toy with this. You know what I'm saying does seducing my child fucking neighbouring them into didn't feel complete as a kid when you got the happy meal and there was no toy and they're like what the fuck off my toy so then it's like you want the toy and in your in your head and your subconscious right. You're like this cheeseburger makes me feel like. I'm getting a toy Tim. There's a loophole for in this. Okay so in the early nineties. If you guys remember Tim Burton's Batman returns came out and they had a huge McDonalds toy. Put yes and I remember sickest batmobile ever it was it was a sick but it was sad.

Mcdonald's and then getting reminded about how fucking scary them and then parents are getting pissed him dolls while you're selling toys. Yalo that we're a movie where the pain bites guys knows. The Penguin was scary movie by the way to today. One of my favorite. Bur burden movies are movies. Yeah it's crazy because you say that and the only I remember from the movie. Is that scene with the penguin by offering a little kid entry. Where it's like Baby Moses? That's in the canal and they find the fucking baby and it's so disgusting that now in the sewer no the baby give birth to the Penguin. He's so fucking disgusting that they decided to give them throw them in a fucking river. I literally don't remember anything except for that. No Sense. Remember the beginning of the movie. Right where Bruce Wayne sitting in? He's telling you ask swayed sitting in a fucking chair. I don't even know what he's waiting for Brazilians. Just chilling a fucking chair and then all of a sudden the bat symbol goes off and then these gigantic fucking lights on the side of Wayne Manor with Beck singles on them.

38. Real Talk: Everything Is A Test

"Hey come on going to watch the project spoken only way. One Eighty two fifty. What'S UP Andy? For Selah this is the show for the real estate about of the lies the fakeness and delusions of modern society. You welcome motherfucking reality guys today. We've got a real talk episode. Before I get into that I like to remind you of the fee. The fee is just very simple. If you like to show if it makes you ponder Sharia just if it makes you better which is what the point of all of this is I'd ask you share the show. Give us a little share. Please leave us a review on itunes. Please share with your friends and get the word out because dude religious make the world better and that's the truth and speaking of religious story for you guys. I WANNA share This morning was working out with one of my good buddies and He is working real hard to get himself into shape and he's making incredible progress. I'm super proud of him. We started talking and he was explaining to me how he was cursing. The TACO Bell Guides are and let me explain to you the Taco Bell. Gods are the fast food. God's when you are a big dude like I was a big big deal but I'm talking like Oh big dude when I was like three fifty is a very hard to resist the temptations of the Taco Bell. God's okay this is no joke. This is not a laughing matter driving past Taco Bell. When you're a big boy all you big boys no talking about that shit takes power. It takes resistance. You guys half to understand that this is a joke and that the series of this matter is serious. Okay now when I was talking to my buddy we were having this talk. He said you know my fiance's pregnant and she asked me to go to Taco Bell drive-thru and I said I can't I can't do. It is hard. It's hard for me which I understand because this was one of my biggest demons and faults for years and years and years until I figured something out and that's what I want to share with you guys today. I WANNA share with you the little shift in perspective that you can have to help conquer your Taco Bell Devil. Whatever that may be right. We all have things that control us. We all have things that are hard for us to resist some of us. Those things are cookies. Some of US those things are Taco Bell. Some of us. Those things are other things like drugs or alcohol or other more dangerous things. Okay even worse than that we all have temptations but what I wanNA talk to you guys about today's how to see those temptations and overcome them effectively on a consistent basis so back to my story okay. He was venting to me that you know. This is a hard thing for him to continue to stick to the Trish implant and lift and do all these things and have to help his fiancee with some of her pregnancy. Cravings is some of the things that she wants to do. Which is you know everybody's choice about how they want to be themselves. And sometimes we WANNA little snacky snack. And that's just reality but I said to him something real simple I said. Hey Bro let me show you how I defeated these things and it's very simple. It's a very simple concept. Okay because for years and years and years dude. I used to blame my wife right like she baked cookies. She's a good chef. She does all these cookbooks. And all this amazing stuff and I used to get real mad and say. Why are you making this stuff? Why are you making all these cookies and snacks and cakes and cookbooks? And all this shit when I'm sitting here struggling my weight dude like I'm food. Attic is hard for me to not be a big old boy. Okay so I used to get real mad. Her and I'd resent her for doing all this. But then I have perspective switch and this is where my life changed. It really did. It really changed in all areas when I this perspective and the way that I started to look at her cooking is cooking and putting all these wonderful things to eat out in front of me as a challenge and I started to instead of seeing it as something that she was doing. That was making it harder on me. I instead chose to see it as something that I could pass as a test. I could improve by mental toughness. I could improve my discipline. I could become mentally stronger by not putting that cookie in my mouth by not eating. Whatever it is that she has set out by not going through the Taco Bell drive-thru and ordering anything for myself which is exactly what I told my buddy. Hey Man said why. Did you look at it like this? Why don't you look at it like when you drive through the Taco Bell? And you don't order anything or you drive through McDonald's and you don't eat a French fry as a mental victory and deposit that into your Mental Bank of being mentally strong all right. This is the key to you. Not being a slave to all these outside elements that detract from you. Trying to be whatever it is. You're trying to be whatever your goal is see. It's real easy for us as people to put the blame on other people or their decisions or how they impact you but at the end of the day this our responsibility and so when you take control and take responsibility for yourself completely and start to understand that you don't have to eat that cookie and you don't have to get yourself something when you go through the drive through and you don't half to eat what your kids are eating. And you don't have to do any of these things and you actually free to make other choices and not only. Are you free to make choices? It's actually something that can help build you by resisting the temptation. That's in front of your face. Okay and this is a point that a lot of people spend their whole lives trying to get to. It's a place they try to get to act. Remember what it was like to not be able to walk past a cooler full of beer without grabbing one accurate. Remember what it's like to literally not be able to go out to eat because I felt like I had not enough discipline to not order the delicious food that I really wanted to order as opposed to the FOOD THAT FIT my program. I can remember what it was like to feel resentful towards my friends and my family for not supporting my goals but the truth is is that it wasn't a day weren't supporting. Michael's it was that they were living their life and my ego expected them to all realign to support my priorities. Which isn't right and it's not okay. A lot of you guys complain and complain and complain about people not supporting you. And it's not that they don't support you. It said that you have a heightened sense of self-importance and you think that everybody else should live the way that you want them to live when in reality if people wanna he taco bell and cookies and make fucking wonderful shit and that breaks them happy. They should be able to do that. So what are we actually talking about here? What we're talking about is identifying our own lack of discipline and dealing with it so that we no longer have these problems where we can't go to a restaurant or we can't go to a barbecue or we can't go to a social function because we don't lack the discipline to stick to what our plan is and you can apply this concept to any area of your life guys. It's important that you realize why you need to have this shift in perspective because the biggest challenges and obstacles that we all face won't be won or lost over other people or outside influences. They are won and lost amongst ourselves. That's what we're talking about here. What we're talking about isn't defeating Taco Bell or defeating the cookie or defeating the beer. We're talking about defeating ourselves in a good way. It's not always good to defeat yourself. Sometimes it is and when your bitch voice is starting to push you into a place where you are going off track on whatever it is your goal. It could be financial could be fitness. It could be spiritual could be relationship. It could be any different area of life when you start to find yourself getting off track. The reason you're getting off track is not based around the outside circumstances that you blame. It's based around your own weakness that you're not willing to take accountability for right and another perspective. I want you to consider. Is this a lot of you guys train? Your muscles lot of you guys will spend hours a day on emails. You'll dedicated hours upon hours upon hours to all of these different areas of your life you'll go to counselling you'll go see a therapist. You'll go to the gym. You'll do your work. You do all these things that you need to do. But you won't put the practice in on a day by day basis to increase your ability of mental toughness to build that bank account. Okay so instead of looking at all these outside factors as something that is going to beat you start realizing that the only mother fucking thing that beats you as you the only thing that could stop you is you blaming on a fucking Taco Bell. Run or a cookie or somebody else doing something that is that they're doing is really truly weakest. Fuck that's the bottom line and a lot of you guys haven't figured that out yet it's not them. It's not the commercial on TV. It's not the smell when you drive past the restaurant it's done of that shit that your fucking weakness and your own unwillingness to address the problem that is ultimately going to make your life that much better when you build this mental toughness by looking at every little thing as a test of your will and your fortitude and your ability to do what you say. You're going to do even if it's as small as resisting the doughnut in the conference room on Monday morning that everybody else is happy stuff in their fucking faces with when you start to realize that that's an investment in your ability to make the correct choices. Your life is going to get better. There is no question so instead of blaming all these other outside things instead of seeing them as temptations instead of seeing them as something that has power over you realize that you have all the power you have all the say you have all the decision making ability and that mother fucking cookie has no fucking power over you until you give it some. That's the bottom line here. And if you guys start to look at these mental victories as appoint an a place to improve instead of a point in a place to whine and cry and fuck and fail. Your life is going to start to become exactly what you wish it to be. And that's my message for today. Everything is a test everything as an opportunity. If you allow it to be. If you WANNA be a victim you'll be a fucking victim but I'm going to tell you the difference between where you are right now and where you want to be. Is the difference between you seeing these little things as an opportunity to get better or as a crush an attempt to hold you back it sure decision and it makes no fucking difference to me which one you choose but if you truly want it if you truly want what you say you want. Start practicing this method. Everything's an opportunity to resist. Everything's an opportunity to win. I can tell you right now. There is fucking nothing on this planet. That fucking has power over me. Nothing and I'm GonNa tell you what on top of that you have not experienced one ounce of freedom in your fucking life until you get to that point. I can go anywhere anytime anyplace I could travel anywhere. I want to go and my Shit my world is my fucking world and the reason it is is because I conquered this piece of meat and it's something I hope you all do pige ongoing again approaching it.

Based Risley's business model reveals the challenges of delivering highly regulated drugs because don't forget that lesson from seventh grade health class alcohol is a drug but before we jump into all that good stuff, Jack Sunday Funday, not happen right now Jack rose a all day Roseanne no way Jack sons out guns out. Well, if you're alone in the middle of a field but one beach towel, I, guess you. Jack and I can never pull that one off. But airbnb we notice right before the weekend whipped up the party. Ban. Effective August twentieth. If you're booking AIRBNB, you may not host a party at that AIRBNB property and Airbnb says that policy shall remain in place. Indefinitely, seventy three percent of AIRBNB he's already had banned parties per the house rules which are determined by the host of that property. You GotTa say Pearl Lawyer was definitely involved. Well as being of lawyers is now a corporate policy no parties known internally AIRBNB as the Party pooper policy at the old P P P, the other P-. But AIRBNB lawyers we notice didn't do much diligence on the fine print. For this thing, we're trying to figure out like what is a party and all they said was that there are definitely no gatherings allowed of more than sixteen people at me but then they clarified in a terrible way by saying no parties even if fewer than sixteen people. As. Well, so fifteen people, it's fine unless it's a party. So what constitutes a party? How does one define a party Jack and you have chips and no you may not. You may have chips or dip one because if there's both, it's apart Jack can and you have a theme I. Just asked the Judges Airbnb. If there's costumes, it's a party. What if your host Timmy says, please bring your own out anything if the letters B. Y. no on the invitation it's apart. So how old are you mclovin? Old enough for what old enough to party let's hundred stories. Daily Legal Way Food is candy. They don't reflect the views of robinhood families historical information just so we're not recommending any securities. Research or investment advice to offer or sale of a security. Business View. Finance soon, LLC member favors less SIPC. For our first story TACO BELL JUST ANNOUNCE An entirely new store concept it's called go mobile, and it is the next level of convenient vacation in restaurants accuracy you we're thinking we've all got it. It's in the back of the Pantry it's kind of near the OATMEAL. It's the old El Paso Taco seasoning finally used them during this covert nineteen shelter in place. So taco bell sales fell by eight percent last quarter, but here's the wild thing about Taco Bell they also served five million more cars this spring than. They did last year and that's a nice science. So yum brands, which is the company that owns Taco Bell. Its stock is just below its pre covid nineteen. So taco bell's like this, their sales are down but there drive sales are killing it. So they came out with this completely new concept they're calling it go mobile and it comes out in January twenty twenty one this is basically air traffic control by the FAA year book for Nachos Think Laguardia Meets Doritos Locos Taco. Now, this restaurant looks like a small. Square shaped Taco bell surrounded by parking spaces and drive through lanes are basically with just a kitchen inside. Now, there are to drive through lanes, which is like that's marginally better than a one drive through lean operation but nick one of those drive through lanes is like TSA pre check clear. It's reserved for Taco Bell Loyalty members only so years where it gets interesting and why Jack and I found this concept. So fascinated Taco bell is going to know when you're almost at the TACO bell at this knacker's your. TACO BELL APP will alert the restaurant on you're like one point three miles out, and then the manager of the Taco Bells going be like Jessica Jesse. Finish that Burrito put under the heat lamp because they're going to be here in three minutes. Then you get the alert on your phone Supreme Soft Taco party pack for Party of one awaiting your jeep that window three. It's incredible. You get your Supreme Soft Taco party pack without having to touch anything hung because we assume they had those grocery store style doors. Up. Plus Taco. Bell is doubling down on the number of parking spots in the space by like literally having double as many parking spots I. If you don't WanNA run up to Windo- three to pick up the food yourself food does they're going to have those old school bell hops but with I pass suing curbside drop off so you don't even have to get out of the Francie expensive they're going to replace the roller skates with an apple product. There you get to eat in your car and TACO. Bell, does it have to interact with you this Jack Nicholson stock of Apple. The new Taco Bell store concept to talk about it knows dining is dying. So it's all about eating on the go as much as possible. So Jack, what's the takeaway for buddies over at Taco Bell Restaurant chains are leading the greatest jump in convenience innovation ever snacks when it comes to these new TACO bell stores you benefit from all the nose you don't need to wait in line there's no human contact. There's no waiting for your credit card to process and there's no cold. Soggy food because it's been sitting there waiting for what's key is that the stores Taco Bell, they're benefiting from this to all those things. We just said that there's none of that means less wasted time for the restaurant doing slow things and more time cooking the food and getting them into customers Bali. So I say Jack and I are looking at this and we thought chipotle chipotle lanes were like peak restaurant takeout convenience, those drive-thrus that you access only with the APP they are. APP optimized to increase speed and they've boosted sales by ten percent a chipotle locations that have Taco Bell just kicked it up a notch with a drive through that's basically stocking and knows your two and a half miles away. TACO bells go mobile restaurant concept is like passing where the receivers GONNA be. Oh, true. Now, where the receiver is right I, love what you did with that. Now, there is no limit at this point to where we can eliminate friction in the food buying. Process who will be the first to replace those an w roller skating root beer servers with roller skating robots, herber. That's the next step for our second story John Deere's multi-million dollar moolah machines aren't getting enough love in the krone economy they're not getting bought. So we're jumping into its famous waterfall profit chart. All right snacks. If you want to appreciate John, deere, you've gotta look at this the machines they make Jack semi a picture one. It's so big I couldn't even download the PDF Can't handle the size of these tracks. It's a gigantic tractor pulling another gigantic tractor. That's like harvesting millions of kwanzaa. Mika looks like starship enterprise is the kind of thing that lifts with its legs. Now it's back. The John. Deere announced bad news Friday, but it wasn't as bad as expected. Yes. Stock actually ended up jumping five per cent before the weekend. Now, John Deere a man who was born in. Vermont. But a company that's based in Illinois has two divisions agriculture and turf. That's the first division. It's for farmers. Its profits were up the second division is construction and equipment. They sell huge machines to construction companies and prophets were actually way down for that. So Jack and tossed on some overalls and we are jumping in literally snack style to their earnings report to see the waterfall profit chart. Now, the CFO of industrial companies that build physical things they love Greg is waterfall profit chart. Look fancy ties they prefer waterfall charts, waterfall charts I, the instagram bio of every industrial earnings report. Absolutely these things explained the five accounting reasons the prophet change from like last quarter to this quarter for John Deere. They showed that last year second quarter profit, and this year is second quarter profit with all the ups and downs in between that caused the different. The first thing you notice that volume how much they're selling that was way down. John Deere sold way fewer backhoes, way fewer planters, way fewer fertilizers than last year but here's the kicker the prices for all that good stuff those were way up not that many companies make diesel tractors, the size of small planets like John. John Deere had leverage to determine those super high prices. Now, also, there's like three other categories for smaller ups and downs like foreign exchange like how many farmers said my tractor is broken. You need to replace it with new warranties. Then he at the research and development costs because they're trying to whip up like a plant based self driving tractor. So there are ups and downs, but it was mostly downs because it resulted in profits and sales falling by ten percents. You'll look at all that and it's neatly arranged in a waterfall chart that looks like a waterfall and we'll tweet it out. We'll tweet it out. It'll give every former investment banker ptsd not fun. So Jack, what's the takeaway for buddies over at John Deere there is no demand problem going on over John Deere there's an uncertainty problem snacks the pandemic hasn't changed like people's need you know to eat food, right? So John Customers are just as busy planting and harvesting. Tomatoes, now, as they were before covid nineteen, but the difference Jack I've noticed is that there is uncertainty about beak farms have some flexibility when it comes to timing of buying new tractors and buying new equipment air right now, we've got a huge political action in a huge trade war with China. So sales of tractors are down because things are so GD uncertain if you're planning up soybeans beginning of China's GonNa buy them because it tariffs, you don't know how many. Soybeans to plant. So farmers thinking themselves, I could spend two million dollars on a shiny fancy new nice or it could keep it as cash because I don't know what's going to happen tomorrow. It's always treat yourself. So when political international pandemic situations stabilize, we're thinking sales, for John, deere like companies should improve you don't buy a million dollar twenty, five foot tractor when things in the world are in say or maybe you do jack actually seemed like a perfect time. To farmers did last quarter but not as many as the previous line. For our third and final story, we got our Unicorn of the day really the largest alcohol delivery platform in the US. Raised fifty million dollars to show that not all delivery is created equal. So True Jack. Now before we attempt to Jack, got a surprise for you. I. Missed you over the weekend. So I invented a cocktail for you. Mar Tells Rockdale I actually know it's called the Jack Tail and here's what list. Two parts, German Brandy two parts, Seltzer Pampa Moose I love that and one part extra organic maple syrup. Win for the Maple Zahra. I may want for myself to it's called a Nick Rony, but we'll save that for another pot. The perfect amount of maple syrup is always a symbol of maple syrup says, knackers alcohol delivery is basically like the frozen of twenty twenty your favorite local watering hole is closed, but you're wanting to get your drink on is up. So it turns out like January only a measly. Two percent of alcohol sales were actually conducted online and that is expected to climb to twenty percent in just a couple of years, and that's being accelerated by shelter in place cove ninety, which leads us to Boston based drizzly who second quarter sales quintupled and it's now profitable. This is the booze delivery beast who experienced a seven hundred, fifty percent jump in first time users coming to. DRIZLY DOT COM this spring the most innovative thing out of Boston says the hazelnut pump over at Dunkin but here's the shocker about fifty million dollar fundraiser drizzly some of it's going alcohol delivery but a lot of its go into a thing called lantern. That's right. Booze wasn't enough for drizzly. So they also launched a cannabis delivery company drizzly Sonia like forty three different types of calls. Lanterns. Actually selling something called Budi strain of cannabis which apparently tastes like cookies and cream pineapple express is so last year this year it's all about the boot delicious strength cannabis booze and gambling. Those are things that they can't use instant cart to deliver them to you. The executives at Jordache would have a panic attack if they had to start delivering those products. So what separates drizzly? Delivery. APPS is their expertise unregulated regulated consumer products, hot booze gambling products. That's drizzly does and it's only available in thirty three states and it can only add four states a year because it's so complicated to get approval the thing about alcohol and cannabis every state has their own laws. So drizzly has a team of lawyers who need to pass the bar in Kansas before they can sell products you need to pass it like twice up their case in point everything's different every state in Vermont? You can't change beer prices depending on the time of day, which technically means happy hours illegal. It's actually the only flaw of the great state of Vermont. They could remark at this and just say every hour is happy hour. We'll see if they run with it extended happy hour by twenty three hours everybody in the state of Illinois, your doorman consigned for alcohol. But maybe in the State of Montana, you need like idea and someone to verify it for you to make that happen in New York, if you sell liquor, you may not sell food it is completely illegal to cross over those two things got a church and state situation drizzly to navigate it all. So Jack, what's the takeaway for buddies over drizzly to be a successful platform drizzly has to nurture both sides of itself smackers every platform. Has Two sides drizzly has the boost consumers and it has the booze retailers who sell on site. The CEO of drizzly has confessed that they have prioritized the consumer in the past at the detriment of the sellers who are selling the booze. For example, they like optimized your easy way to check out to buy that MS cow, but not the way that the retailers can sell that Moscow on their website. So drizzly promises to make up for it with this next fifty million of funding to make retailers happy and invest in their need. The first use of their fundraise fifty million, they're pouring it into ads need to get the word out to. Buds liquor. Mart that they can boost their sales. If they start selling online through drizzly, they got a nurture both sides drizzly. Jack can you whip the takeaways forced to start the week Taco? Bell knows there's less dining happening in restaurants. So it's optimizing takeout. It's thrown burritos where you're about to be not where you are right now second-story. John Deere sales dipped as some farmers put off new tractor purchases. The problem isn't demand. It's all about uncertainty for our third and final story drizzly specializes in the sticky situation of state by state laws for alcohol and cannabis delivered, but it's made its platform great for consumers. So now it's focusing on the retailers. Now time for our snack fact this one sent in a way across the pond from. Norbert. Zaba in lovely Budapest. Hungary. Every autumn children are allowed to Exchan- ACORNS and chestnuts for Haribo, bears at the Haribo factory in Germany other those gummy worms are fantastic. This was a wonderful tradition started by the founder of Haribo. gummy bears Hans Riegel the first in the nineteen thirties. He wanted all the kids to have an opportunity to enjoy candies regardless of their economic status and anyone can find an acorn. We know what you're thinking why nuts because Hans was actually an avid hunter, which is called a yeager in German and use the nuts to feed the animals on his game reserve. For. He would shoot that forever charming tale with a German component. There is a dash of unpleasant. Before we got happy birthday to Bob grew from Rio Rancho New Mexico Daryl Trade Williams in Gainesville Florida. We got another one from Tibo gator country David Burrito in Orlando Florida happy. Birthday. Ebi Sixty I had David Scottsdale Arizona and to Nicholas Glover in Palm Springs California and Michaela game in San. Jose California and happy. Birthday.

Raft. There will be a gift shop, of course, but also a hair salon, offering taco themed braids and nail art. The bell will open for five days, beginning August night. It'll start accepting reservations. The third week of June Newsweek reports that this is hardly the. First time that Taco Bell is thought outside of its fast food box, among other things it hosts weddings. Yes, weddings at a Taco Bell Cantina in Las Vegas. So what gives it's all about standing out outlandish stunts, like the hotel, create buzz and visitors who are likely to post photos, and social media become brand ambassadors for the multibillion dollar franchise operation brand Bassedas. We might add, who pay for the privilege, Instagram and other social media platforms obviously provide opportunities for brand marketers. But the overwhelming volume of content flashing bias, every day. Also ups, the Antion creativity. It takes more and more extreme tactics to stand out witness, for instance, Domino's, which paid to fix some cities, potholes and arby's, which offered customers a Hawaiian vacation for six dollars or Burger King, one of taco bells biggest competitors which trolled McDonald's by giving away one dollar walkers to customers who ordered their Burger King meal.

It's time for the food court files all right this week for food court files we are going to be talking about Taco Bell Which I am very excited about this is way better than Hamas. I'm basically connoisseur very prepared for this I think Taco Bell should bring Hamas in. That's the worst thing you've ever said that you're hot. Take they were going to bring. Yeah Take Taco Bell Hamas Bowl. That's like a lukewarm ticket. Best you need to put your home in the fruit. All right so we're going to get started. We're going to talk about a a whole bunch of things to talk about. I we're GONNA start off what's what's your order and we're going to start with value menu only so you get like five bucks trae where you going thing with the value menu which I've noticed 'cause I've been Taco bells depends what city you're in on. The prices like urine Roseville. It's like a dollar thirty nine you know you to citrus heights dollar nineteen so you've got to really depend what change you have on you to see which one you're going to go to but if I'm going to go value menu only I'm going to go one to two cheesy beanie Rice Burritos? They're very filling very well priced. And they're going to do the job. I'm always no matter. What even if I'm bailing on a budget or if I found ten bucks in my pocket or something I'm always going to get the triple air NACHO. It's it's my appetizer. I have to have no matter. What even if I'm getting a five dollar box or ten dollars bucks. Always have to have the triple Air Nacho and the third thing I do even though it's like basically pointless because it doesn't fill you up at all you got to get a cheesy roll up. I've always been a cheesy roll up guys like three pieces of cheese and like a mini Tortilla. I don't care I love it. So that's what I wouldn't do if I'm on a budget tyler troy. I see your connoisseur as well because Armenia are very similar with orders. I'm getting the cheesy being race burrito. But I'm getting adding beef and I'm grilling it. Only thirty five cents extra a whole different change of the Burrito way. What Oh yeah. I'm so if you're unaware. The TACO bell has a phenomenal APP. That you can customize everything it's basically the best mobile APP on the entire itunes and Google platforms. You can it shows. You recommended add ons. So here's what most people do when they add onto this. You can grill any burrito. You can make anything supreme. There's so many options you do and it's significantly cheaper. Why are we doing the podcast? We should be on this APP right now. Robert it's been fun guys. Thank you so yeah. I'm getting a cheesy race. Brio grilled abby. If I'm always going to get the tripler notches as well because it's the best deal. It's basically not as day but for a fourth of the cost cheated. Yeah it's cheating. And by the way with the that tomatoes rolling tents and then. I'm getting a Bob last one of those every it with every meal and then. I'm getting a mini chicken case. You not the two right around four ninety seven. Those are a little spicy Spicy Spooky Zach speaking of spicy. Do you remember when they did the ghost pepper Burritos Taco Bell. I sure do. They also did the volcano burritos which were even spicier than the goes pepper. Fast spicier them because I remember getting the volcano sauce. Just as like an add on that was spicer goes pepper because I remember it goes. Pepper was around for like two weeks. And then everyone's like deal. It's not do that. Yeah they also had the reaper. Most recently which is the hottest of them scoble level wise. Which were those were legitimately spicy. That's the first thing from Taco blab gotten like ooh. That's that's a little bit much me Jack. Besides everything on it. What are you going to get when you're on the budget why they covered it? I'm a I'm a cheesy bean and rice burrito guy. I'll always do that and then always do the chips in the NACHO cheese because it's super cheap and it's just like an add on always getting we'll talk about the other thing that always order I I usually just get. That is my add on from that. Because I'm more of a meal gang or maybe the box which will talk about here in a minute. What's in the box in a box cheesy being rice? That's mine? We always get cheesy roll ups for the kids and I always end up eating all of them because the kids don't eat them for whatever reason now. This one's a fringe. It's kind of like inbetween ball and on a budget and I've found ten dollars the beef soft Taco thoughts underrated. I wrote that on my note. I think the beef soft tacos really good. I'd rather have the soft the hard Taco without a doubt. I think the hard Taco just as. I always say too busy for me. I don't like it too lettuce. Yeah I like it as a throw in with the other things like I'm getting a Mexican pizza meal. And they just going to throw it into grinch dog course. We can eat the boxes. They do that because you're not going to wear them by themselves so we gotta get rid of these shows. Put them in the box and not to sound like I'm these same shows that came with a store and I want to sell them pushing the mobile APP but on the mobile APP. You can swap out anything that you don't want so if you don't like the crunchy Taco and you're firing your box you can swap it out for soft Taco or chips and cheese or anything like that. It's basically the best invention of all time. Does it modify the price of the box? It does not. Oh my God. We are learning so much. We wait thirty five episode staff you all. I could have been doing the mobile APP for months. Now Yeah Well. You'd be a lot bigger than you are now too. I don't think that's possible. I was GONNA say. Wow okay shots fired. We've been practice all right anything you want to put it on. Matab ZACH PUT IT. Maybe not put it on. I will split it. What are you going with a you're going to need a small business I WILL. I always go meal when I got like a number cash like if I get by. Come across a twenty dollar bill or whatever that nobody else knows about. I'll go meal I'm I'm a Mexican pizza meal guy mostly because I love the Mexican pizza but it also comes with two extra tacos. Isn't it just a pizza there? It's talk about really Mexican food I think so. I think it's more American than anything else that we have dippy. It's as American as Apple Pie. `Grande now I can make some piecemeal or I'll do crunch wraps supreme meal. That's the other one. Those are my two from GonNa get a meal now. They've been other ones in the past that I've that I've liked but those are the two that I normally go. It's it's it's going to cost a lot and I know it. I really do it but I'm getting the cheesy Burrito crunch every time so good. I'm getting a full chicken Casey dear. That's like the sauce on this chicken case. I don't know what it is or what else and why it's not on everything but it is so good. It's the best. It's absolutely much money for it for what it is but yeah whatever. It costs to get that sauce on anything. It's about four sixty nine if you go to the ones give me input the sauce on it. And and then. I'm getting case reto grilled because you can get real everything and getting not your fries any large Bob last and then being sad for the rest of the day or really happy to your toilets not going to be very happy you will. Can we give a shout at Saga Belfer inventing the case Areso and allowing me to have it? I didn't know that was even an option or thing. I wanted to just meet these people that are the Taco Bell. Labs and they're like all right. We have eight ingredients. What are we coming up with this guys? You know what it was is probably just wasn't in the lab. Probably just one of the people like. Oh my gosh I hate Taco Bell. I work here. I'm going to do this. Wow that was really good. You guys should all do this. Corporate goes to a random talk about you look like you eat four hundred things from Taco bell today. What are you what Creations Steve? What you got back there all right. If I'm anything any team I want I'm GONNA probably go contracts surpreme if I don't go. Five dollar box depends with the five dollar boxes. I'm somewhat picky. Want to go to bill to go. There's no boxes and play. I'M GONNA go. Crunch Rep Supreme. I'm going to get one beef not to cheese to Lupu. Because I don't know with those shows are on the Chiluba but I would sleep in one without a doubt. And I'm GonNa warm up with a triple layer Nacho and I'm going to close it with the cinnamon twist with a large mountain dew. That's if I'm balling on a budget I mean it's not that much probably eleven twelve bucks but I earned she's Chiluba. That's that's too good to here. It's it's definitely top five all time. Yeah I don't even do you remember when Chiluba because remember we got Gordon. Nita's I and I was like well. I guess this is all right. How would say Lupus? We'll take the Gordon deep. Fry that and then give it to him. I Oh yeah okay. We got something here. I didn't do any research but I would say I was about twelve some nineteen maybe two thousand one that you. Lupu came out ish. I don't know I could be wrong. The SON'S ACCURATE. This feels right. Yeah Troy on won't and HE GOT IT I. Let's talk about the box meals next at like eight times. Because I think that's what you have to get one because it's five dollars but we're still getting a meal and I think the only thing you really miss now from the meals which are like eight or nine dollars is the drinks is is that right. Is that the difference between. Yeah that's accurate the Guy Gordon crunch box and it comes with two extra tacos and cinnamon twists and it's just small drinking. It's four dollars cheaper. It's a medium. Drink down a small Paris. I think economists at Taco Bell made a mistake with these back when they are marketing. I think they made a bunch of scientists at five dollars now. They can't go back because no take backs. Yes the best deal in fast food for sure. Well I get to fight out a box and then add triple Agassi. Yeah stupid. Don't do that but yeah I really like. I just don't know how sometimes like some of the meals they come up with. How ARE THEY GONNA fit in the box and they have to have masking tape? I think that's their came plan when they're trying to put the same or just guys with really good at puzzles. Savagery in school where they train. Everybody had a paid like Jenga specialist. Yeah to a five hundred piece puzzle and it's all white. There's I ki- instructions for the guy to put it in the box you get to put Taco a this way Taco to be up the only downside of the box meals as they use these to introduce their new products and then once they're out of the box meals. You have to pay the full price and it's devastating. Now if you have the APP was tyler's Lloyd's I'll have the cheesy roll up and I will substitute for unnaturally zinc. Here's my rewards number. They do ever awards program at the way. I can't wait to download the APP and about three to four minutes all right. Let's talk about some of the items in the past because a couple of these lasted forever and I'm not sure why they went away. I'm sure there's some sort of reasoning for it but coming it a quick moment of sound for the double decker. I mean that's as long as I can be quiet but it was such a good item. That was my Go-to so like you guys I would just like to double deckers. What's and stuff? Yeah the. There's no reason it should be off the menu. Everything that's in it is just a TACO bell staple it's not like there's some special sauces beans a software in a TACO. They have that constantly. It makes devastated. It'd be it was like cross contamination or something motivation. Yeah too many bears the kitchen. That's my favorite thing on that on the menu for something so simple and it was. It's been around forever and they just wanted to crush my soul. There's not a lot other ones that I remember. That are not there because all the ones I like are still there so there anything you oh yeah so. They had a for a little bit of time. It's hoping for your time troy but it was. I'm guessing early eighties. No late night like early to mid nineties. They had a thing called the Chili Cheese burrito which in short was called the Chew Lido and it was basically just a tortilla filled with Chili and cheese. And it was phenomenal. It was the best chilly it was so so good and they had it for. I don't know solid six years. And then all was gone and they never talked about it and every time you ask about it they would never. They said we don't. We don't do that anymore. That makes me sad. It was probably because the Chiluba came in. It might have been the then. You know whether it's a fair trade off I'm not If I have to give up much leader to get Chalupa it's fair. That's good now. The ensure Ito is something that I used to get all the time. And that was just it was basically an inch a Lotta In came in. Its own little tiny box. Tripler NACHO box. It's the tiny little box and they would have like just ungodly amount of melted cheese over the top of it. And there's about a pound sauces. Well there is so much red sauce on it. Very good came with a straw but that went away as well. That was one of heathers favorites. You'd always get that I. I like the thing that they're doing right now. Is they're kind of like ten the ride. The NACHO fries that you want some fries ono can't have them for a month all right now. They're back now. They're seven dollars. I like the five dollar box item. They got me. I'm not I'm not getting the NACHO box. They're they're they're a fringe to they're not value and they're not like Super League overprice that right in the like two dollar range so you're probably GonNa get them. I'm team Nacho for sure. And every time they come I get so excited because I I get notifications from Taco Bell. It tells you when they get products inter out the no. Hey Tyler. We haven't senior a couple days. We got nacho fries. Come on now. I don't know what spices they say. It's Mexican spices that they put on him. But whatever that combination is of in minner Chili powder? It is so good I agree. I think they do a really good job for quote Mexican Food Place. I do really good with French fries. Yeah they're really good. They're a little too potato for veto. But no I. Let's talk about the. Let's talk about Bob. Blast I because it'll lead me into the next one that's there. That was a game changer. It's the best rate. It's something that we obviously love. Because it's half of the half of the contents of a spike special and they just tweaked it now. They did it. They did. Code Red Mountain Dew did which we have a good cook grits. Trae you WanNa tell that Code Red Story? So we're on a plane with my buddy Jordan and my mom goes ahead. Jokes jokes around with them. Goes Hey Jordan. I know you live. Could Red Mountain Dew on the airplane orders? It all excited. And she's like yeah we don't have that and he turned so red fat. It was awesome so we started with that we had a couple of others and then as a Taco bell exclusive. They come up with Bob last which is just like the slightest ever so slight tweak to it. I don't know what's in it or what's different but it's just amazing you had. It's like a tropical mountain dew and it's blue very vibrant blue and it is absolutely delicious. It's exclusive balanced. It's not fair. I wish I could have it every day. I think. That's what makes it so good as the exclusively of it can't get anywhere else. Now that leads me into the freezes blast do a Bob last freeze which is basically a slushy with the Bob last mountain in it but they have other flavors as well. They pimp it during the two to five window. You get two dollar drinks or whatever happy hour happier nice thing is you can go from that happy hour like another happy hour which leads us into the next thing. You like that. Kollek segue folks. No that's what Pablo the Taco Cantina which we recently got downtown. None of us have been. We've read really good things. It's cut out the middleman. Get drunk while you're eating TACO bell if we're at Taco Bell. There's a good chance that we already been drinking so might as well keep the party going and let us drink while we're at Taco absolutely and I think a little more upscale to I feel like the decor is a little better. The chairs are better yet. They actually clean the tables weird. And you can get a revenue Bob last. That's that sounds amazing. And I I want that. That's the dream right there. Well I mean. How many times have you probably done that yourself? Most of the time. You're the passenger in the car. Okay no-one judges are anything that's all we have for food. We're going to. We just wanted to do a quick shout out to does the ad campaigns for Taco Bell. They've just nailed it like since we were kids starting with the Taco Bell Dog. Now the Chihuahua you'll get a Taco bell so easy so simple something. You're always going to remember whether you know what it means and as a kid. It's an adult. I still don't but they used to give away the little stuffed animal. You could push the foot if say this. Slogan is really marketing campaign are and then whoever came up with these two slogans is probably a millionaire living on a beach somewhere but think outside the Bun. It's just classic brilliant top-five ad of all time very good only behind the other person that that came up the idea of fourth meal. It's it's the problem we didn't know we had that had to be solved in. It's it's perfect. It applies to everything the you want on Taco Bell at that time an hour and it checks every box just makes you know some of US feel better to. They've been eating for meals for years. Oh it's OK cool. They just renamed inner to. It's great. I love it everything about it. Now I have some slogans. That didn't make the this is what folks. Taco bell they through these four back to me but I thought that they were good. The first one is Ding Dong Taco on that one didn't make the cut number to save by the Taco Bell. That did not make the cut if you like it shortly put a Taco on it. That one came back and the fourth one TACO baby one more time off for those did not feel Taco for like the word save fees. I'm a big fan of Ding Dong chuckle. That's gotta be. That's why it's considered to be considered. I'm in conversations right now at the AD agency but we'll see you in the TACO bell dog talking to keep the same thing every time I push his foot though. It's ridiculous right. I think that's all we got Taco bell. We're GONNA take a quick back quick break and come back with. Remember that thing man. I'll tell you what Zach. I'm absolutely exhausted. I'm too. I wish with fresh roasted coffee when I get my first roasted coffee. I like to get it from fruit of the BEAN. I love for the Bane is fresh roasted right. After you order. It's not sitting in some warehouse somewhere. Not only that is they. Give a lot back to the community and give back by helping orphans and those affected by human trafficking. Those are do good things helping others getting coffee now. The other cool thing is if you use the Promo Code Spivey finally we have my name as a Promo Code. You get twenty five percent off your first order. That's big news so go ahead go to fruit of the bean and get your coffee today. Hey remember that thing. The Moon Landing Jazz trapper keepers manners. South Sunny D. Yeah I remember those things all right this week for. Remember that thing We're talking about something from are not childhood but it's it could be long enough ago that it was a challenge. We're talking about beer pong this week. One of my favorite games I've ever played should be an Olympic sport should be an Olympic sport. I'd watch that only if they appear in the cups though agreed. Don't go water on the cups. That's not beer. Pong Pong two different things stupid. It's a different game or Dave and buster's I we're going to give a breakdown of what beer pong is if you're not familiar with the game Basically play on two sides of table. Each side has ten Red Solo Cups In the shape of a triangle one in the front four in the back equaling a total of ten cups. The cups are filled with a little bit of water order. Beer depending on the rule your plan will will debate that hair and a little bit You play in two person teams To each side of the table unless it's late at night and there's only two people still away then that's that's a whole nother story later in the subway so so each player gets a ball. If you make it in the cup the other team has to drink either aside beer if you're playing with water or the beer that's in the cup and then you pull the cup out in the first team to make the other Teams Cup. Schooling wins the game. But there's a million different rules everywhere no matter what house. You're out whatever what party. You're at the rules are different. So that's why house rules are so important and we'll kind of go over the rules that the House that we played most at had Zach House. Yeah we had a lot of fun. We took our house rules very seriously and we went through them. Very vigilantly point. New People came over to play. We also wrote them on the whiteboard. That was in the kitchen just so that people knew we weren't making the house rules. Well that's one of the biggest struggles with beer. Pong is that everybody has their unique house rules. And if you go to play somebody else's turf and the rules aren't established you can get because this is a very strategic game. It's almost like chess. And if you get caught without knowing the rules and you lose a devastating so we were very conscious about making sure. Everybody was very aware of our rules at every given time any time someone come up. We had the courtesy to let them know. Hey here's something that you might want to know it's like it's like playing monopoly and then sometimes you'll play and free. Parking is free parking and sometimes you start. There's a pile of money in the middle of every parking. You get all the money. It's just different depending you play with doesn't make the game wrong. Just it's just different. People like to play different ways. I think that would play chess every time you lost a ticket. Drink few imagined end of that. That would be fun. That's a lot of pieces because I'm not very good at chess. I'd be drunk real quick check black all. Let's go through our house rules. Just get everyone on page with what you should be playing because I think these are the best rules. We've played it a lot of different places. I like the way that we had it set up. I thought it was competitive. So first rule elbows behind the edge of the table. Then this lean over the table. Nonsense where you're basically like. Yeah Finger Roll. No running heads star Wilt Chamberlain layup free throws. It's behind the line. That's the rules. We're all short guy so we we don't like it's no. Go go gadget arm now. If you do levels of the table you were at risk of getting a nickname for the rest of your life. Show to Mike cleary WHO I. I don't think I think that's the first time I've ever called him. That he is in. My phone is Johnny elbows and he will forever be known as Johnny elbows. Because he is a habitual cross with the elbow johnny elbows Dr Johnny Elbows Dr Lawrence both DDS. That's how it's a revolves. Let's go back to set up though we put bureau water the cubs. It's very important distinction. We didn't discover the great idea of putting water in cups. The until an embarrassing long amount of time a probably seven to ten years of playing beer pong with just beer every single time in that ball would hit the ground and we'd pick the ball up and just making the cup and then now whatever's on the ground is down your cup and you're drinking ground. We dipped the ball at of water. That's somewhat cleaned. It got did have aside Water Cup. And that's what you gotta do. The the worst part of the night is the next morning when you wake up and see the the Water Cup that is used to clean the balls in there is just organisms their wildlife in those. It is a third veto style. Yeah all right. How many beers are you putting aside when your plan? I know we talked about this a little bit off air. I said the average range would probably be one two three but if you're playing in a large party let's say how many are you putting on a side. Got To two beers. You gotta think about the longevity of the night this beer pong if you're not familiar with a game that lasts hours. It's not a short thing it's not. It's actually very much like monopoly in that. In that way and that you're GONNA be playing this. All night is usually if somebody who doesn't know what is there gonNA jump in and WanNa play so if you're going to be beers aside you're not in it for the long long run you're GONNA run out of Beers quick and then now you're now you're having to get a uber to go to the gas station or something like that so we ever done now. I I'm three beers aside guy but it also depends on how many beers were starting the night with if we've prepared and we aware that we're playing beer pong that night we've got more than enough. Miller lights or cores lights or whatever we got now. That's the thing that's very important type of beer. You're pouring it if you're drinking. Let's say like a log Anita's hype for one. You shouldn't be playing beer pong but for two. You're probably GONNA put to Max. You're having a bad time. The very filling. You better not get hot. And you've basically taking shots of beer for the majority of the night so let's say depending how many games you play so those that haven't played beer pong. Let's say there's two beers combined in your ten cups you and your team mate or each drink five if you lose or close to that if you win only a few cups you drinking almost a whole beer every game and the game's only lasts anywhere depending who's playing from five to ten minutes you're drinking a beer basically every ten minutes and then the game stack quick if know one of the rules of beer pong is if you win you keep playing so if you go on a little winning streak your pound in four or five beers real quick and then our yeah. Oh Real Quick. And then if you're going through decides to beer and a half game and kills very quickly and as as your skill levels slowly diminishes as as the night goes on in your head like everyone else. Conc- slowly increases to a point and then it falls off a cliff like a parabola. I made ten straight. I just missed the table for exact. Wake up all right next house rule past elbows balls back so if each player on the team makes a cup they get the balls back they get another term rather than going to side now that that changes depending where you're playing a played at where you don't get that. I've got it will. I've played to were if you both make it. You get one shot back. That's the we'll talk about it later. That's the tournament rules and look at Camp compromise. I guess I like that and I I like to getting rewarded. Because it's it's not it's rare that happens it usually happens. Maybe once a game. We both made the cup. And you get the balls back. I've seen which is a pretty popular rules. The explosion rule which I think is dumps Israel beer pong if you both make the same cup every single cut that is touching basically ends the game on the first shot and I think that's Bush if you make the middle on Yeah Aka the Amateur Cup. We'll talk about then here so we play when we make same cup. You get three cups. Yeah that's that's normal rules. I think most places I played same cup but to yet the two different ways to play it to some people when you make it they pull the cup. Yeah see we never did. We took the ball out so the ball's bouncing off the ball which is which is you. Do which is normal house rules. But let's say like I said again we're kind of Pippin it but terminate rules. If you make the cup they pull the the cup. You can't make the same one again a lot of different house. It's it's a fun game now. The other rule that we have is. Nba Jam rules. Where if you personally make three in a row you get to shoot you miss. It's the best but you have to. You have to make sure you announce it so if you make one cup your your heating up or no two consecutive so you make one. You're good you make the second one you have to announce that you were heating up or does not count. Does that count as we talked about this allowed? This is a very silly game so good very serious like RPG. Ullivan's about this is fantastic. So yeah if you make two hundred year heating up and then if you make that third one you're on fire and once that turns you shoot till you miss and a game can change very quickly if somebody gets on fire and the thing is too if you're on fire but your team gets balls back yet shoot fire. I always firefighters. Yeah it's like if somebody gets a Birdie when you're playing golf that guy has t I in same rules for for the makes total sense. It's totally At all right and then another normal rule to rewrites so as you're making the cups you're going to get some weird configurations as they're pulling the cups so to make it fair you can rack the Cup design twice during the game and I feel like that's pretty standard. I played somewhere. It's one played somewhere. It's three which is pretty outrageous. One of the major reason you want to do this because the cup stop touching as you start making some cops get pulled and it makes it harder to make them so when you rebuttal or when you react the whole purpose is to get the cups other touching so you have a better chance of making them so for the purpose of speeding up the game so you can get again more games than now bouncing as another very controversial rule. It's for our house rules as soon as the ball touches the table or the cup. You could swatted away. Some not like that now. Most of them. If you bounce it goes and you get two cups. That was are rules. That was the rule but we could block most week a block most house rose. You can't block and then there's somewhere you can't block bounce in just one cup. Bouncing was one of my favorite aspects of European catchable. Sleep in and then you automatically get that in two cups. Somebody else makes it in a bonus. Three or four cups changes the game. I'M GONNA make sure people stay on their toes and then the swatting of balls is the most fun thing in beer pong and especially when people aren't expecting it like you explain the house roles and they come over and they're using. They're doing their big art. Because it gives you a better chance of making it and he just want the ball across the room and you make them go get him in the head and the balls just hovered and Otis Hare. It's fantastic swatting. Is it's such a great. It's like Emily Jimmy Jam we play. It's just huge huge swats. Walgreens goes flying. It's just such a great feeling people look at us and they don't think that we're athletes. But I mean after talking about this. There's no way you can deny that we are without a doubt now. What are the dangers of swatting? Though you could swap one of your own cups over and as soon as that cup falls over that counts a make the team and I'm very guilty of this. I do this way too much is I would swat not just one. It'd usually be two or three cups. 'cause I just aggressively want to off the table just to make a statement and sometimes I statement is about at this game absolutely. I think the I think the last house rule that we have. We've got we've got a couple. We play the troll. If you do not make any cups personally you have to sit under the table during the next game. Shame you gotta put. It's a shame it's a shame it's basically putting on it done tap. Yeah hundred percent now. I have played a game with a double troll. Have you ever played in a game with Dibble troll? I don't I don't think I have. That's that's devastating. You have to just retire at that point. I did want with Justin Timberlake. And who's the other thing was showed a more for that joke. I can't on Andrew there you go you get that. I saved your job. Set you up now. The most I think looking at this the most controversial rule of any party that you go to is the rebuttal. One hundred percent so when the last cup is made no matter there's some games ended automatically but when the last cup is made the other team has a chance to rebut and keep the game going and these are worthy rules. Get Tricky Tyler. You break down some of the different ones. You've seen. Yeah I get these are some of these are controversial because it makes a big difference on what's happening in the game so the biggest rebuttal. Your standard one is that When somebody is basically in the position where they're GONNA lose the game they get a to get to rebut and their move is if you make one cup. They're back in the game and everything continues on but the way we like to play is we don't like to reward people for losing. So if you get a rebuttal sure you can rebut but you have to make every single cup on the field remaining bulliest game over games over yeah. Each player gets a ball. They each shoot till they miss. If they can get all the cups then it goes to an overtime. Three cups is usually over time now. The other rule that we played because there's the possibility of getting multiple cops either two a time or in the same cup if the other team ends in negative cups so if you make the same cup when there's two or one left the game just you don't get a rebuttal. Those another house rule that we may balls back. You have nothing to shoot at game over. We played a fair but harsh game. We don't we. Don't reward losing. We make sure winning celebrated you come with that a game or you're gonNA leave hundred beer and a half in your stomach and not very happy and another rule is when you win. The other team has to drink the beer. That's left in your cups. So let's say they have nine cups leftover. There's they're drinking a lot of beer and we punish especially if he did three beers punisher losing this game and you could literally play one game and drink three beers in five minute period so again as the night goes on the scales. Very if you're losing with nine cups on the other team it was very quick. Yeah you're not putting your name on the list for a little bit. It's getting a race by your partner. Real Quick I. Let's talk about some of the weird or rules that we've seen I've got to written down. One was a weird rule that we came up. That was a house rule. I don't know what to explain the The origination of this rule and then the other one. I've seen just different parties To Minnesota on a work trip and we ended up playing beer pong and they had this real here. It's called Death Cup so if somebody makes the cup you have to drink the beer. But if you're still holding onto that beer and somebody makes it in that beer that you're holding the game stover. I think that's pretty standard but a lot of games. You have to drink beer before you shoot your next shot so again rules we played. That's why we never had death cup. A lot of different like we said a lot of rose. Different houses a lot of different parties. We've been two years and it's fun to you is again knowing these different house rules and you have to. It's you're playing the same game but it's like a different version of the game. It just makes it so it's fresh you can constantly as you can see. There's so many rules that you can adjust and change. It just makes it very versatile fun game. It's like playing the different stadium. Mlb knows big fence out and right you got to change up. The swing hit more line drives. It's just you gotta bring it now. Let's talk about my favorite rule that we invented and I don't know where this came about. I think it was in response to you. I WanNa see we were playing Alex fastpitch. Actually once you explain the role that we're talking about here so this is it's a rule where we basically means. We're very common teammates. We were one of the greatest teams of all time and we took a lot of pride in shaming and embarrassing the teams. We played again so we would be very surgical and had them call out what couple we're going to make and all that so we got a point where we didn't like making the Easy Cup so we'd always go for the Front Cup because it's the hardest. It's the closest there's no margin for error for balances off the table so when we're playing Alex. We made a role that if you make the Front Cup you have to announce you'd say F that Front Cup obviously episode and you have to flip it up without a doubt and it became a spiting every time and if he didn't announce it the Cup didn't count refilled the beer. Put it back up front this silly game games whereas older as human beings why are we talking about it out loud in our thirties? This is great another thing too that we didn't talk about the different when you re rack in the different formations that you had. So there's different ways you can set up the cups that are favourable to you trying to make it and there's some that are just kind of like taunting your team mate so it was kind of talk about some of those formations tyler. What were some of your favorite? Let's so you got down anywhere from three to five cups what were some of the formations you liked so a lot like the stoplights a basically it looks like three cups in a row which I liked. Xm Street shooter alley going for those department. That is Metal Cup. You got two cups touching. So it's a little bit bummer. To Final Code. One of my favorites was always basically a diamond with one on the front nine plus one Democrats when it came we had so many interesting them as the sword. Yeah also known as the Steve Irwin. And then known as the Irwin Common Steve and then finally just the comma and then if you add to its kite. Yeah Yeah. Those are really solid ones. The play buttons going. You get to in a row on the side again. This is the diamond this. This is the these reasons that we're talking about is the reason. This is the best regime Flip Cup all. You're doing to flip and there's not a lot of variables changes flipping this. There's there's so many different ways to make the game exciting and interesting. There's one game that we did play for a couple of weeks. It was a blast. Was Baseball Baseball. Or You could steal. That was a lot of drake. Yeah sidebar sorry back to formations the most disrespectful Iraq all of them. We can't for us on accident talent. I were playing. We made all of the Middle Cups so the only ones left with the three corners of the triangle. Why we didn't rewrite before that we normally would have but I think we're just up by like a million so was just three corners the Bermuda Triangle. We're we're struggling to hit. It was the way the game works is. You're throwing a ball across a table in trying to make an Aqap so when you have three cups. That are distantly separated from each other. It makes your perception Really hard to make it into what? You're trying to go your. There's no leeway no air. Yeah no margin of error at all does not an accident and so if we got up real big we would react into Bermuda triangle note. We're talking about now. Just spread them out like the corners. We're just GONNA make the three hardest shots possible to be you because we don't respect to you all right so another house rule especially Yeah Zach and vetoes house. Was you had to have a team name? And you had to get up on the board to see the order of which you played. It's basically I'M GONNA put my lunch Pale in this box and I'm up next on foursquare. So what are the some of the most creative names that you guys were in that you've seen I've I only had one as at Halloween party house dressed like a lion in my buddy was Luigi. So we're the green lion all night which was fun and like I mentioned before means Zach. Were very common teammates. We probably if I've played a thousand games a beer pong. He's been my partner at least nine hundred of those times and we have a very high wind percentage. We're thinking probably eighty five ninety percent so we were very solid team and because of that you know. We came up with some really good team names. My favorite was blocked by Again that comes from the aggressive manner in which we'd swapped the balls and then the other. I think we use US one more like a road. Name like blocked by Deepak was more. That was our home team. Like we're on our side of the table that we liked at my house but if we traveling we would be three three furious not too fast. Two furious right. We're one more. The best part about the block by debock name was every time we swapped the ball. We above shout as loud as humanly possible. Even if you weren't in the game good years just arrived wasn't going to Swat just yell. We did a Lotta peacocking emphasis on peed. All right. Let's let's cover the. I think we'll just finish with the Reno tournament so we played. I gotTa Tyler Story. We can talk about after the tournament. We'll see the story I and we'll finish with the retirement all right so a lot of games at Zak's house parties and they start anywhere. Once the best buy crew got off work so usually like ten to eleven a little bit of a late start the night of the week. Yeah like Tuesday's we'd start a little later. Nine closers would be off at nine thirty. We start people ten or eleven. We hit a lot of free time back then so anyways they had this beanbag chair thing in their front room and it was probably like two thirty at night. I played a couple of games. I was twenty one mom and I had a few drinks might have been a big Gulp spivey special and I'm this passed out because I was so tired on the beanbag chair. And also I wake up in Tyler's playing one on one to three beers side with this guy that we had just met that night anyway. So it's just the two of them Zach and everyone else that lives there's asleep. I'm asleep on the couch. I think Jordan's sleep on the other couch all sudden. I hear this big racket and all of a sudden tyler wrestling with this guy. All the cups are flying everywhere. The table gets pushed against the wall and they're literally wrestling on the ground. So I get up. I walk in Tyler. Just like on top of this guy and tigers you good so yeah. I'm good and then like they put the table back and they continued to play. I want to say it was like one of the most ridiculous. I'm like am I dr- I might have been dreaming but it was so good passionate game and I'm passionate about it and you get to one re one at the. That's the degenerate hours. You're not playing. It's last call literally games. Basically that's the kind of degenerate your the major takeaway is that I am competitive and I take this game very seriously. Basically all right. Let's finish the Reno Tournament. We'll do a quick because we're go a little long on time here but so for Troy's Bachelor Party Best Party one party one. We went to Reno which was a lot of fun. You'll probably tell that story we've got to do batting practice in the ACC stadium like it was a really cool trip but one of the things that we did one of the night as we played in beer pong tournament and Harris Harris against all the locals that apparently play all the time every night talent. I were where little out of practice this point and it was kind of said this is later on. This is our like our last raw basically five years ago boy yeah. That was a long time ago. But it's still like and that was passed our prime then it. It was in the twilight premiers so we get up there and we played a tournament. I think we played bunny and whoever his partner was but you know yeah and if you hear the music you know we're going to dance as a matter. How out of the game and we came in very confident because again we've got a very long track history almost a decade long of just being phenomenal at this on the first game we did very good. We be bunny and his partner blindsided by the rules though like we finally played. It's like one of those things where you pull out the rules for like no and you're like. Oh that's what we're to do what don't have to say that front. Yeah you can lean over the table you can bounce without blogs you have you can redirect mid turn can. It was wild everything opposite of what we did. And there's no beer in the cups water so we were very confused so when you sign up for this tournament there's anywhere if you've never played in one of these tournaments Twenty to twenty five teams. So it's twenty dollars each to get in but when you do sign up you get two tickets for two pitchers. I say pitchers with quotes around the really like large Soda Cups. Two pitchers of Miller lite. So you can drink those on the side if you want and it's it's pretty good so yeah we did our job. We matchup against our friends the first round who are also in the Bachelor Party. We ended up being about half the teams in the tournament. A pretty good amount of people. So we're feeling here Bachelor Party. We're feeling real good film. Really good we advance to late arounds and we played against one of those local Reno guys that they just do this all the time and we got absolutely flooded. We started hot like we made our first like three filling in the guy just like like a hustler. Yeah just nonchalantly just Made Cup. After Cup Cup. Twenty Bucks a cup or just destroyed a so basically uncle Phil fresh prince when he brings out Hustling Pool. That the ball. So we're feeling a little little down a little upset again. We're very competitive. So I've taken a little hard as upset mad and we look over and our friends our also this this Bachelor Party were just beaming happy and one specifically our friend. Bunny Matt looks at me. And he he it's like he's seven feet tall and he looks at me with this big smile on his face and with his hands he waves and he goes across here from puppy outside the Casino and he goes and I've never been. I don't think I've ever been so mad. My entire life just told story where you tackled and Russell. The Guy at three o'clock in the morning I've that's the story we could tell on. Podcast Oh yeah. Pg version the so he and he just the way he said. It stung like a dagger to me. And I remember the moment like it was yesterday. Oh I hear my nightmares. It was it was devastating in in the way he said it was such pride. It almost ruined the trip for me. Made the trip for me so. I mean it's like you know opposites there but I've played in this tournament a couple times. It's been at different casinos and all that but it's the same people. Every time probably played in five times in the same people win it every week. And it's like regulars against the tourists. They just come and boat race all the tourists. I think the Best I've ever done is Sarah and I. We went three into the double elimination tournament. Sarah I we played a regular first round boat race and then we got three tourists couples in a row in the losers bracket and then we ran into the eventual winner. But I think the best I've ever done one of those bad boys down. We have fun. That was good. I haven't played in a while Zach when it was the most recent time you played beer pong. I think the last time that oh I know that lesson because it might be the last time I even play unless we like. Throw it together like a camping trip or something or for JD partying among? Yeah I think. Jeez you wanted to play beer pong. She's saying on twitter weird. It was at the bunny spouse. Somehow you made up and we're playing beer pong again. Where bunny south to Halloween party? So we're all dressed up. I'm just I'm dressed like Jake from state farm and we're playing and they they were doing water in the cups so we ended you beers I had. I didn't know what we were going to be doing there. So I brought torpedoes with me. Which is the rookie move? Yeah that was bad. I didn't know that was going on. So that's my side beer and we are applying pretty well so we're winning. And I'm like cocky drinking these beers and this is well past my prime of staying Laden. This is joining the yeah. This is Jordan owning. This is Charlie Bob cats owner by Jordan. Yeah and made a couple seger shots and it was a long night long story. Short ended up throwing up heather scarf and no longer allowed to play beer pong so make sense and I kinda don't really want to kind of passed. That point which is set. It was just a fun time of our. I would play in a friendly family type thing but wouldn't go to a party now. We had a good run. I think high school party or anything like that and play. Maybe all right. I think that's all we got for that tyler beer pong such a good game. I wish we were in those times right now. Thanks I talk about this all the time kind like poker. I play poker. If no money was online I just enjoy planet beer. Pong play beer. Pong got left for the game baby without really drinking as much as we used to. Absolutely cut in half beer aside. That's one of my left one of my right right. I think that's all we got four. Remember that thing. We'll take a quick break and we'll come back with sports. Do you like the sweet taste amount do. Do you like your vodka to both inexpensive and flavored. Like melons. Beverage for you. From the minds of the host of the wildly popular podcast that shares. Its name we bring you the Spivey special one part mountain dew three to four parts. Burnett's watermelon vodka. One Hundred Percent Fun. Drink one at your next party or at three. Am playing Halo Three. Please enjoy responsible. Sports with the spivey brothers cubs are good. Get the ball to big country. Generic soccer take all right. That's enough. I'm out of breath all right this week. I sports jog. We are going to be talking about wrestling. Our second sport of the show we get to of men to borderline sports French so we want to talk about wrestling one. I like about wrestling other than like the flying action moves and all that kind of stuff. But it's more like a soap opera but for dudes there's a lot of action stories but it's weird like a soap opera world like this person has amnesia. And then but wrestling's like all right. This guy's an undertaker now and then we just we're just gonNA run with it. Oh yeah and they'll it's the longest running episodic television it's on every single week twice a week live episodes of new episodes incredible and they somehow you know we've been awesome flips along with somebody giving birth to a glove. Glad that came up. It's just one of those things like when we would watch a little. We would hate to miss an episode. Not because we'd missed the matches but we'd miss the plot. I think that's the most important thing. This is fueling this guy now. Okay and they get caught up on it. Wait a minute. This guy's attacking this guy at the hospital even though he was hurt. How's that Dr Lenham? Get in. I think though the reason that I like wrestling so much number one that we talked about was the story lines number two. The signature moves that they have and the way that they sold them and number three obviously was the divas stacy keebler tra- status lead to all of them Messi TV. Those are definite now for signature. Moves in for finishers. If you don't watch a lot of wrestling basically eight all the other moves don't really mean anything never gonNA end a match. Each person has their own little special. Move that only they do. That has some weird name. And that's how the match ends and it's really exciting. And somehow they just keep coming up with new ones even even though they've been doing wrestle wrestling since Abraham Lincoln who is technically in the W. W. fame so I believe it the best matches were when they do finish her and then they kick out another guy does the finish her or the other has to do is finish her again. Because this guy so Tuffy took six finishers get them down. It's called a false finished sweat to really gets you invested because you get excited and then it doesn't happen. It's just such a shock at least all these shocking moments the best part so which Youtube. What are you guys? Favorite finisher moves of all time. Mine would probably have to be stone. Cold Steve Austin stunner. Just because the way he'd hit it it would be so devastating and the way some people would sell like the rockwood hit by flip backwards like three times all dramatically and we hit it so suddenly just again in the match the match instantly be over that part about him and he would just do it out of nowhere. He'd be talking to like say. Vince McMahon or something. I'll sudden stuttered. Fake cheering him with beer out. Great amount who was to be the guy who keep time at the ring and beat the wrath. He didn't care every love it. So like the moves that will come out of nowhere and I like the ones that have the big lead up for. They finish my big lead up. One is the Macho Man Randy savage off the top rope diving elbow because he makes a big show out of it. He climbs up the ropes. He's pointing around the stadium. He's got both arms up all before like this guy is just laying there on the ground. Because I don't even know. What are the moves much even as punch? The guy fell over scoop slam. Yes SCOOP SLAM clothes. And now he's been lying on the ground for ten minutes but then he just flies across that ring. It didn't matter like even he'd be like fifty sixty years old and he's still up on the top rope point into the guy in the upper deck and then doing the elbow drop just elegant. And it's so beautiful. I love that build up and then I like the ones where they just come out of. Nowhere like rainy. Orders Archea but Diamond Dallas page. Did it I? It's the same move but they just come out of like any other move and then you just hit a stunner or eat. Hit the diamond cutter. Whatever everybody goes nuts and then the matches over? He'd show the diamond. I though so you kind of knew it was coming do it afterwards. Depending on how was feeling on the match came out of nowhere he didn't do just didn't really quick. I think my favorite one is another one like really. You're not gonNa just duck was sweet Chin Music Shawn Michaels. He stopping on the ground with his foot like ten fifteen times in the guy man even know where I'm at. Then he just walks right it sweet music but that one is one of the most electrifying and I think this is the sound at me. 'cause you know that that snap and it just. I don't know how did it 'cause I don't. I'm not quite sure how wrestling works. I don't think he's a landing. They hit their thing. Nice these cameras so it sounds like they're hitting a sledgehammer against piece of rock. I like it either way. It's still sitting all right. So we kind of talked about some of the moves Favorite wrestlers trails go with your to my wrestles talked about both of them but heartbreak kid. Shawn Michaels. I think he's cute. You know he's sexy so that I think that song as he's coming in is one of the best entered songs it's up there with some of the other ones. We'll talk about later today. I think that's one of the best intros. Just pretty boy. Finisher sweet music. It's just amazing. My other Guy Got Stone. Cold Tyler kind of talked about him but Austin Three Sixteen drinking beers hitting stunners flipping everybody off getting down on the ground yellow super close. There's nothing like stone cold in a great turn from what he was in. Wcw before it came to WF. He had like long blonde hair when he was in the WCW like we barely remember him doing it and then he comes to the WWF. And then just come up with this concept form. And now he's the beer-drinking Bald Goatee Guy Iconic and it's just it just makes that big turn turns career round like Marquel away. We're going to give you the stupid gimmick where you're an undertaker and then he just does it for the next forty years tyler. Who's your favorite wrestler? Mine are a little less traditional I. I'm a huge fan of Mick Foley I think he is one of the most versatile wrestlers that can be. He mails the promo part. He nails the comedy aspect of wrestling and he is one of the most hardcore wrestlers of all time. He throws tax in the ring and flaming barbed wire. And just P put it body on the line and we'll we'll get some this later talk about a comic moments but the things he is his done in wrestling. D- kill most people so I think he's just awesome 'cause he's all around and then Jericho for longevity him in. Wcw is a cruiserweight was so much fun to watch and then he comes to the wwe mixes huge debut and he just. He was the first undisputed champion. When everybody thought it'd be the rock or stone cold they give to him and he still wrestling. Today's wrestling a w and he was the champion for the first four months there in there and he's still just fantastic. He's he's adapted his career. He's had so many different personas from the list to being cruiserweight. Whitey J I just. He's really versatile as well and great furniture with the the the walls of great move up. Why are you talking about both them and it was? It's mostly further finishers macho man. Randy savage is just like a next level character. Where he's just like super hyped up on whatever he's hyped up on not like the top like ultimate warrior where it's like scary over the top but it's fun over the top. He's got the outrageous costumes. He's got missile is booth with them. He's yelling at me gene and he just got some of those great promos like the cream always rises to the top. It is just. It's so good it wouldn't work with anybody else. He's got that cool voice. He's in Spiderman. I think I think that's the best part of him. I got you three minutes. Love love that and I love that. Diamond Dallas page. I love it that he started when he was thirty. Eight which doesn't make any sense because that's pass where your body should even be able to let it was just like the only person that didn't end up in N. W. O. And WCW carried the whole thing and then now he's like teaching Yoga and get these wrestlers off pain pills. It's it's fantastic. It's a great story and he a cool Dude Dawson and I love the self high five. That's just a great opening first. Second OF SOMEBODY'S WALKING. Music Self High Five. Not as good as the breaking glass of stone. Cold Steve Austin or some of the other ones or the undertaker like now chills. All right. So let's talk about iconic moments here kind of go. We'll start with tyler your to most iconic moments wrestling so for me. I think one of the thing that captures again what we love about wrestling is when HP care when we HPK heartbreak retired ric flair so flair was little much much holderness grease. That'd be like fifty six years old and he's still under wrestle. Vince is trying to get them to like not wrestle anymore and he basically decided to have a retirement match Katie WanNa hpk to be the one that ended his career and they had this really emotional match back and forth. And you know at the very end of it. Hpk before he tunes the ban hits a switch in music he looks at Ric flair and doll genuineness. Miss looks at him and he mounts. You know I love you. I'm sorry and he kicks them punish Pennsylvania's career and I cried night together. I that's what I love wrestling is that it brings out. You get excited in sports and then it just has a social aspect and then other one is when undertaker streak ended. It was one of the things in wrestling. You never thought would happen was twenty one wrestlemanias. He's icon. It was never going to happen. He's never gonNA lose any finally lost brock listener in the means that came out of it of the guy in the crowd just shocked because it was definitely. It's the only time I've ever heard Wrestlemainia. Just make no sound once the once the third neither one. Two three hit just dead silence. Everybody pretty secret to is one of those things like I heard a story. That guy took a took out a loan to put a bed on the undertaker winning. Because it's like a sure thing at that point. And then he looked at the odds like it was like one of those things where like you bet one hundred win ten or whatever and then he kept looking at the odds and it changed a fifty fifty. And he's like oh no not good. What do they know? And then I had heard some of those lines like now. They're not gonNA have do that. Undertaker's the one that's GonNa end Brock's crazy streak but no just stunning. It just absolutely stunning. Zach what do you got to iconic moments? Why I think the two that you see from the one that you see from every debbie w eclipse ever like. It's in the beginning of the INTRO. When you go on the APP it's mankind getting thrown off home so so they had the pay per view for the first time. It's the first time we see it. The cage match has been around forever. Everyone talks about cage matches you climb to the top. If you're superfly Jimmy. Snuka you jump off the top of it or macho man. You chip off the top of it but you claim on that end of it and this is the first time they put a top on it and we're like well. How does this even work? And then they get out of the cage. They claim on top of this. Seems Really Sketchy. And then undertaker just throws mankind off the stop the end of the table and we're just looking around like is he did jeers call of by. God. He's broken in half. You might be dead. It was just incredible. Here's a great spot. It was like perfect landing. There's there's a really small margin of error on that one. How do you practice that? I don't know that you do. Maybe a dummy you just hope. How hard do I push this guy? Because he could easily. I'd that fall is what two thousand feet in the air through a table insane is pretty drowns. GotTa be fired. You're like oh my gosh. I'm climbing on top of this. For what again going back to I love fully the best part of it didn't in the match. He got up and they kept fighting and they went back on top of the cage and he got choke slammed at the top of the cell. A steel chair fell with them and hidden until hard that his tooth burst through his lip. And the stickiness nose wild crazy those such a good match out. The other one for me is so. Nwea was huge ABC. W that's the one that troy now watch most because it was on I there on at the same time. We Love Razor. Ramon we love. We love diesel. And they come over and they're taking over and we'll hulk Hogan's there he's the one that's GonNa stop. This debut invasion any turns bad for the first time like in wrestling. You've got you've got faces and you've got he'll so you've got good guys and bad guys in it's for the most part pretty clear. Hogan had been a good guy for the entire time that he's been in wrestling twenty thirty years like he's always the guy he's always the one that wins he even league schedule him to lose. He's just he has to win. He's that guy and then he turns bad and then the next episode. He's got like a spray painted. Blackbeard things got a BANDANNA. And it's like this is weird but this is awesome at the same time. We have differed feelings on Hulk Hogan in this room right now but he's iconic he just. He played both parts. Well the crowd and what's great about that moment? When connick moment was the crowd again? They'd never thought about the had a process they're throwing trash in the ring. It was incredible. I think that's what made the wrestling's not great. But his his MIC skills and all that other stuff is the reason that he's one of the most payments people. I think we've got a couple hundred. You got a couple. Yeah the two I got is. I don't remember the context of this but when Stone Cold Steve Austin drives down in the milk truck. Just I think it was a ceremony of some sort and is just blowing everyone in the ring up with the milk out of a hose. I think it was McMahon and I have no idea who but added been Kurt Angle of its milk. Yeah because Austin did it with a beer truck I and then when when England's feeding with Austin he came down in the milk and host Austin Down with milk. It's just one of those things I always. This is one of the things I'll always remember. Just Austin is one of the reasons. Why one of my favorites is. He just didn't give you know he just went for it and the other one is just something because Zach said we were more. Wcw growing up than we were W. F. at the time but when Goldberg came in and his entrance and the streaky went on where he didn't lose for forever but my question always was like. Why does he need security would? He's coming into the ring. It just never really made sense to me. Like someone's GonNa go attack him. I don't know he's part of the thing. It just kind of made me feel weird but he remember his first match. I remember watching it. I remember watching it but I don't remember but the spears down no music. Forget the wrestler's name. I remember his his. Finishing move was no laughing matter where he does like a backflip off the top rope. It's like a big fat dude. You more this war that to us. Yeah him he hits him with no laughing matter and Goldberg Kicks. Out after a one count and we're like what who is this guy? And then spear and then he lifts Hugh Morris up and hits him with the Jackhammer any pins on and then he just walks out of the ringers. Like who is this guy? He's my new favorite. They built them up so great and the street it was he did so good. That's just one of the things that streak. That run was just so good definitely good. I let's talk about underrated wrestlers so we went over. Our favorite wrestlers were properly rated some of movement. Probably maybe overrated Let's talk about some of the underrated ones like so to get this to work. You've got the good guys and your bad guys but you gotta do a match every week sometimes twice a week for years and years and years and years so you can't just have your top guys do it over and over again. You gotTa have your like every day matches like the rock can't fight stone cold every week because it doesn't work you've got to build up to these things so let's talk about some of these other guys that are around the kind of put in the work. Put these other guys over and put on some good matches of their own. The mid Carter. Thea that's what makes it work. So I think my favorite again Debbie stubby guy Malingco I don't know if you remember watching him wrestler. He's the most technically sound wrestler out of all of them Basically makes everyone great had some great fights with Ramos Stereo early on in his WWF. Career really made him look good and made some of like who can run and that stuff really stick. It just made a lot of guys look real good and that's what I liked about him like. You said technically perfect He's a trainer. Now which is which is awesome. That makes sense. I liked one of the four horsemen Arn Anderson. So good that guy he just he just didn't know what he's GonNa do but he always. He wrestled well. He did his job and was just a very strong link and the force. It's best mind. Buster in the business just absolutely the way pick up in spin around slamming just so realistic. Us move. It's like what I let's talk about my favorite move that is not an actual wrestling move. And that's booker. T. in the spinner ruining tyler. Tell us about the spinner Rooney. Are we talking about the five five time? So Basically Booker T. rate went through phases. He did king ring for awhile. Yeah he went through. Wcw Booker T. O. The Harlem so good. So good so the spinner. Any basically random does match. For his handle. Finisher he would he would pose on his pump. Push on the ground and then get on his back. Basically do like break dancing. Spend with this helicopter legs and get back up again. It provides nothing wrestling wise. He's not doing any damages opponent. It's pure theatric. And it was just he every time. There's just a such a joy to watch us one. He's up there one of my favorites and I love the announcers this yelling spoon every ten winning another one we have down east kind of. I'd probably say he's average rated by though is cane he kinda under brother shadow a little bit but he never really got what he deserved. Thought he had some great runs though the the fire in the ring. Every time you come in and it's just really great entrance and the mask is to even later on like corporate gain like he puts on good matches. He's really tall. The choke slam works really. Well you know he's just the be reversion undertaker unfortunate basic. That's how they did it. He probably would have been really gonNA give them another gimmick at worked out good for him. I think I think credentials are really underrated wrestler He's actually a really good wrestler. Yeah he's an Olympic gold medalist with a broken frigging neck as he'd sale at time. I think I think his moves. That was just unique. I like I like the way he did things in like. You said he'd nail the comedy angles a lot but unfortunately he happened to be in the same era as the Rock and Stone. Cold so played third fourth fiddle. Those guys and then I always really like gold dust. I just thought he said to unique Weirdo and you know. He didn't fit in the square box than everybody else did. He was basically the Dennis Rodman of professional wrestling. Absolutely you come down and the different video. He'd haven't come down. His move was the shattered dreams where he just get them on the on the roads go kick them right between their legs unique wrestler and. I just thought it was done more with a terrible gimmick than gold. Dust now now. He's a cross dresser from like another planet that's basically is getting another one. That we have down was kind of big for a while. Those Hacksaw Jim Duggan. Oh I ever royal rebel. Winter x Jim duggan carried a big big piece of wood to American flag. He would just run in really great shape now but he still wore like a speedo with the blue disheveled. Long hair beard. He looks like he's been sleeping in his car. That's why I use news. Pretty good wrestler though one of the things about wrestling alleged tag teams. I think there's so many good tag team Zach with some with some of your favorite tag games you guys. The you watched so the bunch of really good ones. The ones my favorite tag teams are the ones where the I only see them. Existing as tag team. So we have a couple that are down there. I think one of my favorite is the road warrior Haagen animal. They've got the spike shoulder pads. They've got the face pain. I don't know either of their names. I only know them in that context. I think One of their sons place professional football major hug yeah the the Greek finisher of the doomsday device. But they just work great together. They have a team up move. They only exist in that realm. They never really had single careers. Just great. Gimmick. I just like people that stick to Gimmick and they just make it work for for as long as they go. I would say my favorite was they had a decent by themselves but the outsiders Holland Nash. They were one of. Wcw again. Because that's what we love but one of the best teams ball time. Oh absolutely I mean you got to talk to you. Wrestlers that are pairing up together. It's how tier wrestlers both grade on the Mike. The toothpick they played the villain role. So perfect then both have fantastic finishers. Yeah and there are a couple of teams like like the brothers destruction another one where you to top tier towns. That are teaming up to make great teams. Some of my favorite tactic were during the area of the TLC era so you the deadly boys edge and Christian and hard ways and I think those those three teams are some of the best taxes in the world for for very nick neak reasons. I think they both probably a lot but they're matches together and like that three year round where they're doing. Tlc matches in going just award each other. It was some of the best tag team wrestling of all time. There's nothing more exciting. Get the table deadly pushing on and saying get the tables so great and click on a random match on a Thursday night. Slick all right. This is where we're going. I love every moment of the powerball may young through a table. Yeah he's a crazy person. Edge Edge spearing. Jeff Hardy when he's dangling from the top of the line came back in the royal rumble. Any push like Sheldon Benjamin and he called him and tell them to go get the tables in the middle of the royal rumble. That was like there Another one the new age outlaws. They were good. Those another one like by themselves weren't really much. I remember really liking the ex at the time but it didn't really aid very well. No you go back and watch it from the clips like open. Oh that's not okay. You can't do any come on black face. At one point in time was wild. It was a little rough but they were very entertaining. The time the only triple eight version that I liked. You don't want another game. Fan Game Fan. I even liked hunter. Hearst Helmsley better than the game where. He's just like a French duke or whatever inherited great feeling a powdered wig on all right. So we've kind of talked about this before but are Mount Rushmore. Who's your four. That's on your Mount Rushmore. We'll start with our guest tyler. Okay mine's pretty boilerplate. Nothing anything crazy. I'm on the Rock in there. I think you know what he did. Inside and outside the ring his longevity is time champion the charisma I think he introduced a lot more mike skills than ever seen before. I got the undertake around there again. He's been doing it for four decades and a high level. Streaky is fantastic. Stone cold for other reasons we mentioned and then I've got Vincent McMahon on my list as well I think he's the fourth I think none of this gets his biggest as without him. The amount of things he does for the wrestling community promoting and making his big as in marketing and making it seriously with stock trading credence. Wbz Network. I think we turned it from a regional thing and then he just started stealing wrestlers which was against all of the rules that they've done forever and like what will now we have local. Now we have Andrea the giant and it turned it into combining them all into one big thing. I think I think he's he's iconic in in. He also was a champion at one point in time. So I think I think he makes list Kind of controversial hot. Take if you will but I think he. He belongs on the Mount Rushmore. That he's too because he gets a lot of credit for making it what it wasn't as big as it is currently even taking over every w and just like I wish the xfl woodwork them. That would have been would have had had. I think I think it was it was it was getting ratings. Yeah I would have been. I hope they get another season of it. But I also have I have undertaken before I have Rick Flair Nice another big merger like he was a nwea wrestler over of other ones but he was the most famous going to that and when they started pulling in the big names in the eighties he was the one of the ones that really carried the brand early on any also wrestled until he was a million years old but he would still be wrestling today if they would let him. But I don't think he's cleared to do it in his promos his daughters in wrestling now but best. He'll just poke in the eye like everything that you know. You just know that. He's the bad guy over the top. You spend ten grand on these elaborate outfits that he wears for two minutes while he's walking down to the ring the limousine ride and kissed deal in just over the top awesome character just great stories throughout and then I got to whole Cogan on their again. He's the reason that it did as well as it did. He carried Wrestlemainia one. Two and three and Mike Nineteen Like all over the place. And he's just like he's kind of thing carried Debussy W for a while. But he's just like he's the most iconic one. He's got a lot of the big moments he's got the fight with Andre the giant. He's got you look back at the clips in the montage on the network. You've got mankind fallen off the Cajun you've got hulk Hogan Slamming under the time and Andre the giant. Those are the two things so his wrestling's not as great as it was probably before he joined the W. w. f. But he's he's an icon of character and he's got to be on the rushmore. I mean kind of piggyback on you guys a lot of the same but I have undertaker. I feel like he's gotta be up there. He cemented in already. Looks like a statue so I mean might as well just put him up there. I got Hulk Hogan I mean if you ask someone. What wrestler do you know the most? I think he'd probably be top answer on a lot of people that are casual. I've got the rock the rock digital huge amount for the WWF. Everything he did brought I think a lot of fans to wrestling and they started watching it because the him especially in the younger age group and then my fourth one is just stone. Cold Steve Austin because I love the and that guy is this is usually what I say. That is good so I think those for. I mean no matter who you put up. They're the ones we've all talked about. They could all be debated. Wrestling is still to this day. One of the most popular things as much as you know some of the people make fun of it for not being real and fake but like Zach said earlier. It's basically a soap opera soap opera each other. Now there's rules in place that they can keep doing it every week every week of the year for years and years and years. So when you're jumping over the ropes to the outside the guy's GonNa catch you so that you don't murder yourself But they're hurting. Theirselves like most of them are addicted to pain pills. And they're they're out of it pretty quick because they're actually hurting each is now the matches or predetermined soap opera than an actual like fight. But it's still super entertaining. They've got at rages costumes and GIMMICKS and yell. None on the mics and making fun of each other. And it's just a lot of fun to watch. It's great about it right now is. There's not a lot of live sports or things going on right now and it's on you know twice a week three times a week and to. Watch NASCAR. Yeah how many times do you watch you know cornhole tournaments on ESPN. So I I love it. They're still still dinner now and just great or anything. I think we'll cut it off there. We probably talk about wrestling for another. Two hours will will save you guys that like to give shadow to fruit of the bean again our sponsor this week great coffee in great t shirts mugs.

Take you may need to upgrade your device when you switch to get full coverage none of what up world welcome to another episode of the Ocho Community Partnership as always with SPN nations bogging. The boys dot com arduous show you know me of of course from bt from humble host on the Ocho it is Friday September thirteenth two thousand nineteen. That's right Friday. The thirteenth named it doesn't feel as right in September always is a little interesting when it lines up in the month of October but fall is kind of starting to get here so I'll give it a pass. Ask you know it's a Friday and so I do Friday night football games here in San Antonio and so it's always got a bit of a fall field to it. I'm not trying to be you know foolish here. Maybe I'm trying to will this into existence. The weather is starting to feel fallish. It's getting into the low eighties that's right here in San Antonio and so that's kind of simply where we are at look. This is our Friday episode so the way we're going to do this throughout the season just so you know we set the table here on the BBC podcast feed by the way make sure you subscribe to the blog of the boys podcast at the very least one episode. I've Dallas cowboys coverage per day also get access to a two-time superbowl champion. Tony Casillas were available on all major podcast platforms. I tunes Apple Devices. Obviously android devices stitcher. You know spotify. Wherever you get your pods we got you covered so make sure you subscribe and give us a rating read review view those things really help but so we'll do give a little brief recap a little opening thoughts on the Thursday night football game at the end of the episode. Will quickly run through our picks for the week straight up. I know there's obviously you know I like picking against the spread but since since we're doing this on Friday things just so we'll just kind of general autzen who we think will win that being said Thursday night's game sucked own my gosh. This was technically the first iteration of Thursday night right football because last week was technically this season opener and so you know the branding is always a little bit different but my goodness. This game was is boring. The Carolina Panthers could not get it done the panthers coming up short falling to the division rival Tampa Bay buccaneers who want twenty twenty two fourteen and I mean I'm not the first person to say this. I think everybody thinks it's something's clearly wrong with Cam Newton in. I tweeted this during the game watching the panthers this season obviously we're only two games in feels a lot like watching the Dallas cowboys last year before Amari Cooper got to town. I was somebody you brought this up to their debut. The Anti Thompson was was a focal point for the cowboys offense. That was a year ago. That was just a year ago ago. The deontay Thompson was a serious part of the game plan and no disrespected the anti but just goes to show how poorly the cowboys had planned for the two thousand eighteen season thankfully they were able to save it but yeah. I mean the kind of feel that way. It's disgusting getting their own to. They have lost nine of their last ten games in a row. That's are not in a row obviously but they've lost nine of their last ten. Ah they've obviously lost these two games start the season. They won the week seventeen game. They played in last season against New Orleans. Although that was kind of a meaningless game for the St. and says they had locked up everything they could so I mean if you don't want to count that they've technically kind of lost. You know what that means. Their last nine true games of I'm serious consequence granted CAM missed a lot of time last season but may in the panthers look bad. If you're listening to the bucks I mean and the bucks looked bad to how Bruce Arians called two timeouts in a row. I mean he Chris Webber this thing and I've said this many times before I don't get the national love for Bruce Arians both but people are all over him all the time because they think it's cool and curses and yours the hats you know whatever and he has all these funds sayings. He's kind of not that agreed coach. I mean again. He called two timeouts in a row and almost cost his team and would have if not for the fact that Ron Rivera was worse. I don't know why the Carolina Panthers or scared to Sneak Cam Newton again. It has to be a health situation but very very very very weird needless to say when it comes to the Dallas Dallas cowboys though obviously they will be looking to get to to Ino and we'll hear all about the stats about probabilities and percentages are making the plops go to Eric cetera assuming the cowboys do we it should be mentioned that on Thursday's episode we did a lot of Hunkin and by we I mean me. Not We as you and me. It was me about how various guys Jonathan on were definitely GonNa Miss.. This game theory is absolutely going to miss this game. I should say it's not one hundred percents certainty Jonathan Missus game but it's at least trending in that direction who knows obviously anything could happen but I thought this was interesting last week. When the redskins played the Philadelphia Eagles they surrendered three replays of over twenty yards now a lot of that had to do with the Sean Jackson so this redskins defense can burn deep. We know that and do you know so again. We're talking. Washington surrendered three place of over twenty yards. Do you know how many plays the cowboys offense head of over twenty yards against the New York giants I mean. Do you really know because the answer. It shocked me when I when I first saw. Obviously we all know the offense did really well last week against the giants but the cowboys had seven plays of over twenty yards seven seven okay so we're talking about an offense. It's capable of some big plays which is still difficult to wrap our brains around going up against the defense that is at the very least through one on game this season susceptible to that. I mean tell me that you can't see Michael Gallup burning the top of the redskins defense the way the Sean Jackson and I'm not saying that Michael gobs the fastest Sean Jackson but you get my point I mean he somebody who can strongly have success in that capacity. I also think it's worth mentioning that over the last decade because you look at all last year lasts two years whatever over the last decade the cowboys have won fourteen games against Washington in general but that's both in Dallas and fourteen out of twenty. That's a lot and Jason Garrett fulltime tenure because that did begin in two thousand eleven they are eleven and five against awesome and obviously they've got to really bad losses from the two thousand twelve season. They did lose last year at Washington. We discussed that already this week but they are six into on the road in in Washington under Jason Garrett and they have scored at least thirty one points in four of their last five games against the redskins. They want all four of those only time they didn't score at least thirty. One was the loss last year so I think when you when you combine all of those things all those ideas all those sort of potentials. If you WANNA WANNA call in that it's arguably likely arguably probable that the cowboys will score at least thirty one points that they will win and that they will get to know I mean those are legitimate trends and legitimate data points now. This is the number of different quarterback. There are going to face in terms of Washington. I I mean think about the number of quarterbacks they've face and in fact I hadn't you know I had some notes from being honest. I did not have this written down so we're going to figure this out together. So in two thousand sixteen the cowboys obviously be the redskins both times and both of those games were quarterback by kirk cousins. We know that in two thousand seventeen both of those games were quarterbacked by Kirk cousins and the second of which was the home game the Thursday after Thanksgiving. I don't remember the exact date on that. Something like November thirtieth but that was twenty seventeen. The cowboys were their color rescuers in the redskins. Were those horrible. Colorado yellow ones and that was the night that Jason witten broke the extra me that Dez Bryant broke the all time receiving touchdowns record for their copies seventy third which ultimately was his last one which is really not cool or not as less. Excuse me that was when he broke. The record is seventy second. He got his last one in New York so I'm all over the place again. That's what happens when you don't have notes. It's Ryan Switzer had a punt return touchdown that night too so I mean again. It was a good game so 2017 game to cowboys got to play Kirk cousins twenty eighteen eighteen game one obviously last season which is the last time they went to Washington. They played Alex Smith that was when they lost and then the redskins came back. At and T. Stadium on Thanksgiving last year and they got to play Cole McCoy. That was the game they want. One of my cooper went off etcetera etcetera etcetera and this Sunday play case keenum the point I'm trying to make and I had this thought but I had to say it out loud because it's a podcast and not my brain is this is the fourth game in a row for the cowboys that they will be playing a different different quarterback and I hadn't really realized that and so sometimes these podcasts really helpful for me because they're how I think so you can look at blog on the boys dot com because I'm definitely going to write about this sometime on Friday so four games in a row against four different quarterbacks. I mean all of them you. If you WANNA call Kirk that kind of journeymen I mean obviously Kirk was still in the beginning of his career in Washington time by Colt McCoy definitely journeyman who at the time of Thanksgiving last year had had had success with the Redskins stadium which is what made that game so nerve wracking and then Alex Smith was a journeyman to a degree last year and obviously case keenum now and you can Honestly maybe even make the assumption that the next time the cowboys play Washington which is the regular season finale that they will play a fifth quarterback. You know different one in a row because it will probably be Dwayne Ryan Haskins because that's a week seventeen. It's probable that Washington obviously won't be a playoff team. We're assuming here and they'll just want to see something from their rookie before they you kind of pack up and go home for the season so I think that's I think that's interesting. You know when you think about the entire run that we're talking about here has been nothing but Dak Prescott under center for the Dallas cowboys so just a feather in your cap tech away. Let's talk about I don't WanNa say the man of the hour but let's talk about somebody that has just been talked about a lot of directly and indirectly about a potential obviously trade that is what the you know rumors swirling. Let's talk about Taco Charlton within as soon as we take a very quick break to hear word from our sponsors with an epic first week of football behind us.

You may need to upgrade your device. When you switch to get full coverage okay so TACO CHARLESTON. Where would it begin so well. The cowboys drafted talk which in in the first round two years ago so tacos in his third season. He has not been active yet so far far on the young two thousand nine hundred campaign now. TACO did look great. I think in preseason I I would use the word grey another a lot of people might not go that far but TACO did look at the very least really good and there were starts even in the preseason okay they're trying to just kind of highlight him and show him off and and sort of prove that he's this guy etc.. They can trade him away. That is unfortunate because there is a lot of logic to not trading away Taco Charleston and here's here it is because there's a lot of people here that and go do what he sucks. I mean I don't want him. Trade him. Get seven hundred graphic. The thing about Taco is is at this point. He's a third year former first round draft. Pick the cowboys or whatever team he is on at season's end will have to decide whether they want to pick up his fifth year option for what would then be twenty twenty one season. I don't think if he's around obviously that the cowboys would do that. I don't know that any of their. NFL team will do that but I think it's smart to do that. Honestly as stupid as that sounds because what if what if he does turn the corner what we saw in the preseason is indicative of this sort of change in in ability I mean to get a star pass rusher if he ever evolved into that for the price of a fifth year option is a lot friendlier friendlier than the price of whatever the market is about what you pay demarcus Lawrence again not send the TACO could get that but you get my point from a fiscal standpoint so there have been rumors about Taco and there's even rumors dating back to last season. Remember right around in when you're talking about Thanksgiving with the Redskins Lago remember that Taco had reportedly really been a healthy scratch in the middle of last season due to needing an attitude adjustment that was the talk back then we wrote about it and so he was not active week one against the giants a healthy scratch which is never a good thing and so I mean is you're going to be active on Sunday. I don't know and and why would he be inactive well. The answer is probably that they're looking to trade him and they don't WanNa get hurt and maybe they're in the middle of offers. Maybe by the time you listen to this. This'll that'd be very posted very very early Friday morning but maybe you know if you're listening Friday afternoon. Who knows I mean. Maybe he has been traded but what I found interesting so we're talking you and I. It's just you and me here. Nobody else we're talking on Friday and on Wednesday Brian brought us an embargo Arcia from DALLAS COWBOYS DOT COM. They do weekly periscope session. I Love Periscope obviously if you've following me for a while but weekly periscope session called almost cowboys that's as part of the so most brand great worked at the digital staff does over at the mothership but so on this week's almost cowboys broadest was talking about you know the the situation with Taco and he said that he thought would be lucky to get a fifth round draft pick from and again that kind of puts in perspective just how big of a whiff this has been and really you know. It's a whiff and it's frustrating. Yes could ahead. TJ Watt whatever do the cowboys have had unbelievable success. You're going to have this and if Tacos the miss hey I mean take your Byron Jones Zack Martin's in your late and vander issues and everything you'll you'll take that track record but something else that brought us out it was that he knew of eighteen that the cow was talking to when it came to a trade for a player he mentioned at a position that could help the cowboys and he specifically said that he wasn't going the team and not depress him on it but obviously there is some sort of talk happening. Which is I mean? Maybe you think it's exciting. Do you think it's fun. Maybe you think it's good if you think that's productive but it does seem like something is in the works. I guess with Taco meat. I guess would be the way I would say Maybe something is trying to be in the works. Maybe something is brewing I don't know I mean that would be probably the way that to characterize it. Given everything going on but TACO for what it's worth because you know me. I love me me some twitter. I'm on the twitter machine at RJ Char Taco head to moments on twitter on Thursday that I found very interesting so the first one wasn't necessarily surly a tweet that he had but it was a like because you didn't always tell them what about Uh tweets that people bike answer Taco liked a tweet on Thursday from somebody who's twitter handle is at cozy burt and the tweet reads are the rumors of wanting to trade Taco true. He looked like he improved. Tackle liked that tweet and maybe he's just liking the portion of it. It says you know he looked like he improved. Whatever but later on Thursday sorta evening TACO tweeted tweeted the waiting game with the the hourglass emojis like the sand hourglass room talking about that you flip upside down the saying goes around he tweeted that which again would imply that he feels like he's waiting and waiting on trade but it does seem seem like I don't know it seems like there's some writing on the wall. That's all I'll say I mean where there's smoke. There's fire we said all the time and it does seem like there's a lot of smoke coming from the idea of Taco Charleston getting traded what position to the cowboys need help edit. It could be targeting. I don't know that's a really fascinating thing to consider and I know right now. When I asked that question you screamed out mean Ca- Fitzpatrick yes it was reported through Thursday night football from ESPN's Chris Mortensen that the Miami Dolphins is are there was kind of a report in UN report as much as that doesn't make sense but it was kind of wishy washy in terms of the dolphins being willing to trade away means if it's Patrick Richard in dude. I mean if you trade Tom Johnson from MINKA FITZPATRICK. Let's do it and let's let's figure out how to get the most out of Minka but I I mean if the if the dolphins are in a true tank sort of situation. Why would they trade Dr Houghton. I mean why it has to make sense and I just I don't know that that does make sense so while Minka would be cool. I do think you would probably be for some sort of defensive back probably a safety. I just don't think you'll be mean guy. I think it'd be some guy a lot of people have never heard of and ultimately they'd just be like you know what we got rid of. TACO and it happened and it is what it is so we'll see. Maybe it happens before. The Washington game happens dafter but we're all on TACO alert before we get out of here. Though for we finish up Friday's episode by the way we will have an episode or planning on having an episode of the 750 go after this in your podcast feed some extra check that out we will have obviously a post game episode of the Ocho. I said Episode Episode Sewed Goodness Gracious of the Ocho on Sunday afternoon because the cowboys do play at noon so we'll all go to bed a little bit earlier than usual and I know I said that my dad would join us yes. I'm that's the plan get him on the post game episode get his thoughts and his reactions to what will obviously be a win in Washington but what else will happen on Sunday. We know that the buccaneers one on Thursday night football now you'll have to go with me here because we're doing podcasts primarily this season obviously not doing as much live streams we used to do and I got a lot of questions about this and I I love deeply. Everyone who asked about this when we used to do our picks on the the live extremes on periscope and facebook live. I brought out a prop right. I mean 'cause that's the Tabar Dude I am. I have props and the prop. Is this tree kind of like a decorative decorative tree of something you would put in like a dentist's office you know with with little designs. I don't know but it's a tree that my mom. Tom gave me a long time ago and I have a bunch not a bunch. I have thirty two many helmets on the ones that fit in the palm of your hand they look like Christmas ornaments on this tree you and I call it the tree of life as long as an. NFL teams helmet is on here have life in the season and so I'll tweet this photo out on Friday with the link to the episode if you catch it that way but so if you know the tree of life just know that we're pulling the helmets the tree of life at this particular moment we're trying to figure got a little bit of a different way to incorporate of the season but this is what we got to so the bucks got the win on Thursday night football moving onto Sunday. We've got chargers and lions. I will take the chargers. I don't believe in the lines if you tie and we won. That's not a good sign which means I will take the Baltimore Ravens over the cardinals. I think has the potential to be a fantasy field game. I am a Murray owner in one league my league of record actually in so. I'm not playing him because I have Tom. Brady eighty and it's good to have Tom Brady. I'll say that but so I will take the chargers over the lions and I will take the ravens over the cardinals. I will go for this one. I really had some trouble with when it came to the Tennessee Titans and Indianapolis Colts. I'm going to go titans. I'm not necessarily I thought it would be high on. The colts holds honestly but I I I have to see a win before I believe in you know Jacoby and frank again and everything not that I don't believe in frank but and you get the picture I was impressed by the titans us we can Cleveland so I will take Tennessee. I will also take Cincinnati over San Francisco. Yeah the all super bowl rematch watch out. Rip John Candy but I mean I know that San Francisco look looked okay last week but I still am not sold. I'm not sold on Jimmy Garoppolo. Oh I am sold on Zach Taylor. I think the bengals get this done. I know that the the line and know that we said this was. GonNa be Kinda straight up but I believe the line. The last I saw was like a half a point in favor of San Francisco. I would take that all day on Cincinnati. Obviously moving on I will take the buffalo bills of the New York the giants. Yeah Oh yeah that's right Josh Allen Time. I think Kobe's Lee scores to he knows how to do that against the giants so I will take Buffalo. I will take the Texans Sen's over the Jaguars for obvious reasons such a bummer that that Nick foles hurt but payment that's football. I will take the Denver Broncos coast over the Chicago bears. I know I've gotten many tweets about how that is not fun for me to say so sorry but I was the Broncos you know I I had a tweet a few months ago that had every quarterback that was drafted since two thousand fourteen and I said how many of these would you take over deck and so many many people said Mitchell trubisky and if Mitchell does not look good on Sunday against Denver and he's playing against Vic Fangio. I mean it's going GONNA be bad. I it's it's going to be bad because bears fans have had a week and a half to stew in that disgusting filth that the bears put out in the season opener so it will be bad but I am taking Denver. I'm obviously taking New England in Miami. I know the Miami thing is what it is but I've taken New England and I'm in one pool where you have have to. I'm sure everyone's Kinda. Done something like this where you have to you. You pick a number of games and you have to pick one. That's kind of your lock of the week. It's worth more points than the others. Patriots are my lock of the week. I will take the Minnesota Vikings over the Green Bay packers. Oh yeah and maybe some of this is trying to will it into existence a little bit but I will take the vikings. I believe leave a little bit in Kirk cousins. I interviewed Kirk full disclosure here three years ago at the Super Bowl and he was just the coolest guy and it was so difficult to root against him when he was still in Washington and so I've it's been a year but I've really wanted him to have success in Minnesota and they came out and had a great opening earning performance against the Falcons last week I just I think that I mean Dalvin. Cook looks so good I just when you've got an offense. It's that loaded with an elite runner and Alan Clark. They still obviously have Adam dealing and Stefan scoured off looks in another trade rumors and things like that but I will take Minnesota and unprepared to be doc. That's probably the one I'm least confident and obviously I'll take the chiefs of the raiders who would not I will take the staff. Steeler seahawks is that one is a little tough for me. I don't see the steelers going onto though I just don't and the fact that the seahawks struggled with the Bengals I'm a little spooked and I'll be honest I so I'm taking the steelers. I'm taking the saints. No sorry I'm taking the rams in the now I'm going to actually I'm going don't saints in the NFC Championship game rematch in Los Angeles but I I just I think this. This one means more to the saints. You know what I mean. We're going to hear all about the thing and it's going to be obnoxious. I will take New Orleans. I will save my couch pick for last obviously which means Sunday night football football is up. I will take the eagles I would be awesome to see the Falcons got a win on football but they look really bad man and so I will take philly on Monday night. Football no SAM darnold that is such a weird story but I'll take the browns and I might actually flip that to my lock of the week just kidding in no the world. Am I more confident in anybody. I am that only the Patriots so I will take the browns and then of course we're taking the cowboys that line by the way on the subject of spreads has has moved a lot. It opened at six points. It was at five earlier in the week I saw it as small as three and a half and that was Lee on Thursday so if you can catch that now I think the cowboys when this thing by double digits at think they get to know and I think that life is really good next week so that about does it four Friday's episode.

Get the free guide crushing the five barriers to growth at nets sweet dot com slash full. It's Wednesday October thirty first happy Halloween walking market Hillary. I'm Chris L with me in studio. Always scary sess Jason that you might introduce me as David pumpkins throws a terrible skit that for some reason is really had a lot of legs on Saturday night. Live is did a whole like animated episode or something. So. We'll get deer. Don't worry. It's earnings polluters. We're going to get to the early. But I will just say I've never seen that that skit on Saturday Night Live so good, but producer, Dan, boy, I were up in New York City, recently, we were at thirty rock thirty Rockefeller Rockefeller plaza and walking around the store where they're selling all of the NBC merchandise. They didn't have a lot of us L stuff, right, Dan. But they did have some David pumpkins. Yeah. They had the original suit that Tom Hanks war for that skit, which I I've never met Tom Hanks, but judging by his clothing size. He's not a large, man. Do you think it was like like it was the actual suit? It was the one he wore. That's what the label said on the thing. I mean, hey, because we're actually cleans that suit. The simpsons. Are we're going to dip into the full mailbag. And last week on Molly full money we were out in Denver. So we broadcast some interviews that we had done previously this week on motley fool money. It's earnings palooza. So no interviews this week. No external gusts. It's just going to be all earnings all the time. So and they'll pot-smoking anymore not anymore. Which is my way of saying. We're not gonna talk about Facebook today, but we will on motley fool money this weekend. Let's start with number ends. Parent company of KFC Pizza Hut. Taco Bell bell voted number one Mexican restaurant in the country. According to the Harris poll recently out the Chippewa. Does stop me. If you've heard this before when it comes to yum brands quarterly results, they were good. Well, no, I was going to say these I mean, third quarter profits and revenue came in higher than expected. The stop me if you've heard this before part was that KFC and Taco Bell made up for the weakness and Pizza Hut Pizza Hut. Yeah. I cannot ignore pizza. I saw something they seem really desperate. They they're I don't know where I saw the I think they were trying to go viral. They put a robot in the back of a pickup truck to supposedly make pizzas is if the robot can gather the ingredients and put them in it sounded like a real gimmick. But that the only thing that could make Pizza Hut pizza worse is if you made it in the back of a pickup truck was this a television commercial, they're promoting I swear it was on. I'm only read like Bloomberg. So it must have been in a news feed. Anyway, but yum did very well. I mean, you you saw the numbers that comp comp at KFC, and it's all twisted up because you got international growth and everything, but it's still strong. It's strong. AFC strong at Taco Bell taco Bell's comp is better than Chipotle as comp comp was all on price increases Taco Bell makes its comp by lowering prices, right or hitting the right the right value points and having people come in for lunch boxes and trying out new things. I don't know how you voted the best Mexican restaurant based now let's at Taco Bell Taco Bell after the marathon. How much were you craving salt and Greece if there'd been a Taco Bell at the finish line. I would have been in there. I, you know, what we'll we'll get to the Marine Corps marathon at the end of the show because I yes at a certain point later, but no not right after the finish line right after the finish line. I was looking to just go home. The little cardboard box had like, melty cheese and tortilla chips in it that I did have. I knew it. So the the comms I mean, you mentioned the international, and that's you know, that's part of the problem that they're facing with Pizza Hut. Because half of their locations are outside the United States and their Pizza Hut is really trying to balance the dining experience with the delivery that people crave. And that's not really working outside the United States. That's why they had you know, say what you want about week contin the United States at least they were positive for Pizza Hut. Yeah. I don't know. Maybe I'm secretly European. I don't get takeout and delivery at all like I can't stand cold food than so pizzas. One of the few things. I would order take out because if it's lukewarm it's not horrible. But. A lot of places. They just don't think the idea of a pizza delivered to you or any food delivered to you. And and not fairly hot is his appetizing. But. Sometimes I wonder if they should just get rid of pizza. Get get rid of that piece and have nothing but good news every quarter. Well, it's a legitimate question. Because we we've certainly seen other restaurant conglomerates spin off or just outright sell one of their brands to you know, Darden restaurants sold Red Lobster few years ago. And they were able to focus a bit more on what they had in their portfolio that worked pizza private equity guys out there completely full of themselves. They would think oh I can do a better job with Pizza Hut. Lot them have a try. Well, but do you think it's too? I mean, they've got eleven thousand locations, it's so bad. Probably can't unpack it. But you're just when you watch the the rest of the business, you just sort of you sorta wish you could see the pure version. I mean, this is this is a pretty good company. Good cash flow. Margins are nice for selling such a low end product again. I compared to Cipolla their earnings were recent as margins. No good. The cop flat. You know, just one of these is selling supposedly higher quality food. The other one is selling the food that people are actually buying well. So it's interesting because now Brian nickel formerly of Taco Bell is now the head of Chippewa, and here's moved. They moved the q to be next to his house out there in California. Yeah. Sich coal as now headquartered a couple of miles from Taco Bell. So here's an interesting stat. It'll be it'll be I'll be curious to see if Brian Nikko can start to pull some of the promotional levers at japodlay that they've been pulling at Taco Bell. Here's a fun stat. This most recent quarter more than one in four orders at Taco Bell included Nacho fries, which was their their latest promotions. So it's like, hey, Satan say what you want about Nacho fries. And I haven't tried them. They move the got people in the door. It's part of their DNA. Kind of surprising surprising menu items in Chipotle as got a few things in the pipeline. They said on their call, but they're never going to be kind of gimmicky and what? Taco Bell has going forward is that the irony is part of why you might go. There you go there, despite the fact that it's Taco Bell, right and Chipotle. I can't really can't really be as playful, you know. And so they have to stick with their food with integrity and nickel. You know? He he sticks with that message in the call. So I don't think they're ever going to get his Gygi with the menu as Taco Bell would actually I a lot of this stock. And I still wonder why whole here's a company that's flatter sales trade trading sixty sometimes earnings, and then you could have Taco Bell doing a better job trading at a much lower multiple. Let's move onto EBay third quarter profits came in a little higher than expected. The stock was up pretty nicely after hours yesterday. And right when the market opened today and it still positive, but it's only about two to three percent. And that I said this EBay shareholder that feels right to me this. Was not. An amazing quarter. I I kind of wonder if e- base growth can anyone see my finger quotes on the podcast. It's an audio podcast is sort of not so so there anymore. I l- I actually like EBay a lot as a consumer. I got bicycle parts there straight from straight from the source. It's much better place to do that than Amazon, and I do a lot of selling of stuff on EBay. But it seems like they kind of have reached most of the market they're going to get and everyone thought it was going to be bad after the pay pal earnings. Apparently, they said he bay not so good for us. It was better than people expected, but still not awesome. And so I think the days of putting EBay into the pile of fast growers that are are worth a high multiple maybe gone for good. The stock is down more than twenty percent over the past year. And so I understand why it's up a little bit today. But it just it's it's hard for me to look at this company and figure out where significant growth is gonna come from. Yeah. It is. Yeah. I mean, there's going to be pressure with goods coming straight from China with it, the cheap male ending from China, which will end soon, thanks to presidential action. Which actually does make some sense. China's not a not a third world developing economy anymore and probably doesn't need super cheap postal rates. So you're not gonna be able to get like seventy sent yoga pants mail to you from China for a quarter anymore, and that is going to probably take something away from EBay. I just think people in general have only like so big at tolerance for you know, what some of us think of as flea bay. I mean when you buy stuff on EBay, I like buying used kids shoes and clothes on their because my kids just gonna wreck on. I know what I need certain items. But you don't go there generally for a high quality experience. Right. And so maybe the maybe they've reached the limit.

From Tom Smith in California, Tom Wright's, just wondering if you had any thoughts on Anheuser-Busch inbev 's announcement that they're cutting their dividend by fifty percent, well, given the yesterday General Electric cut their quarterly dividend by ninety two percent, I suppose by comparison. It doesn't look quite as bad. Yeah. I mean, there's a certain point in time where you got to quit with the borrowing, and especially when borrowing costs are going up and paying it out to people and. Unfortunately, the stocks tend to suffer when that happens for a couple of reasons one is people sour on them individually. But the other is that certain funds indexes indices have to automatically boot stocks outright, when they they pay below a certain level. And so that kind of leads downward pressure. I when we're talking about the show this morning. I'm sort of surprises didn't happen earlier. I remember years ago wondering why everybody was always so excited about Anheuser Busch. Because all I could to me it looked like a company that was just mostly borrowing money and paying dividends. And I remember getting ale a long winded Email from somebody was a lot smarter than I was at least. That's what he told me. Not not in those words. But that was the implication. This smart finance. Well, I guess he was right for like fourteen years of right? So there's certainly wasn't good stretch of time. When as we talked about there was free money forever could cost barring was incredibly cheap. And so you had a lot of companies of a lot of large companies just sort of running the numbers and saying why wouldn't we borrow money when it's this cheap, especially when we can tell that dividend. Yeah. And I guess the competitive dynamic is also going to be different now. Especially in terms of beer, right? I mean years ago we didn't have nearly so much competition in the beer market as you do. Now. Now this small size brands medium brands, and so it's just a different landscape. But in general, I guess the thing is if you're an investor is if you're a hold of a company, that's this is their primary means of kind of financing a dividend increase. Increasing it probably someday that's gonna stop. We talked about under armor the other day and its shares of Under Armour up again today. So it's very close to a fifty two week high making some money still still below where it was two three years ago when we were talking this morning, you're you're sounding a little bearish. I read that report expecting to see something. Awesome. And what I saw was not so great. So people must really have thought they were gonna turn in another stinker. But what I wasn't. Yes, they did. Yeah. I I told I told my colleagues if you had handed me this earnings report the day before and said, you can go ahead and trade on this. I would have traded the wrong way. One hundred eighty percent hundred eighty degrees the wrong way. And I mean, the growth is still flat except for international, right? But even the international growth, isn't what it was flat sales in the US were in a different world now with with the big retail chains. Right. Not being so big and some of them not around anymore, and even Under Armour's online sales were flattish, and and their excuse was well, you know, that's compared to last year. We had a lot of sales last year while you just told me that nobody's going to get growth in your online sales unless you are giving people a discount. That makes me to me. That says your brand is tired too week. It's a clown brand and clown brand, bro. We were talking about that earlier and. I wonder I mean, they've got this marketing strategy to sell certain kinds of stuff at a lower price. But they still want talk about wanting to be a premium brand, and we're going to be a full price brand. And I wonder if people really think of under armor is a full price brand, they talk about, you know, the DNA providing better stuff, and I'm a huge fan of heat gear, by the way, I mean I wear that stuff, but it's super tight. And I want them running in the heat. It actually is better stuff. But a lot of the stuff they sell ceramic infused fabric that you put something on it's supposed to use your body heat to heal your muscles after a hard workout come on come on. We all know that that is absolute crock. So and that's kind of the name of the game. All sports. Performance apparel? A lot of it is salesman ship I, but when you see Lululemon continuing to sell and grow sales at a really high rate, and we're at a huge high in consumer confidence right now under armor is putting in this kind of a performance. What are they going to do if the economy actually turned south and people stop buying stuff? Will you you touched on something with the marketing that dovetails with something I read yesterday, which is in comparing under armor to Nike one of the challenges that Under Armour has or something they and maybe they're working on this. But if you think about Nike there really is an it's yes, Nike is a much more established company. So they've had more time to do this. But it is a much more established brand, and there is sort of an ethos to the overall Nike brand, whereas with under armor, it's almost like under armor is a collection of sub brands. It's if there if. They're going after the running market. It's one thing if they're going after basketball football, whatever, you know. You know, they don't really have sort of a collective brand presence in the way. The nike. Does it feels a little bit that way? And it's sorta scattershot I mean, they're running shoe effort for a while this really flailing, and I guess it does okay now. But you look at what they're selling. And there's not a lot of their their they've. Come up with an acronym or a name hover for you know, their Eva foam, it's just it's just chew foam. You know, and one of the things they did where they were at a disadvantage is you know, and being able to release retro shoes. Right. They weren't around. And I was when I was downloading the call to read it I thought hundred hammers. She just go ahead and like make up a fake retro shoe. And then I read the call, and I see they did that. Made up a fake nineties shoe at sodas a retro. She would. Of course, you sell a small number of them and they sell out, and you get a bunch of free viral marketing out of having sold people this new book and mesh shoe, so I guess good for them. But they're at a disadvantage when that is the kind of place that Nike and Adidas conceal out of growth because they just don't really play in that space is the Marine Corps marathon for you. Speaking of crummy shoes. What were you being sick to your stomach was my retirement marathon? So the last one I'm going to do as far as I know, and my training was I should have been able to run around three from my training paces three hours. Yeah. Today in somebody's thing is making a noise stupid, technology and. I got there and started running, and that's not going to happen. So I was trying to slow down. And I had a hard time. I was looking at my not looking at my watch. But keeping a somewhat hot pace in my knees. That's been bothering me for years was tightness. So then I went up by the time. I finally settled in and was headed for like three twelve ish type time and satisfied with that. Then my guts rebelled on me. And I spent eight miles desperately looking for a porta-john. When you've got the squeegees, you're not running your strongest well as we were. Chatting on our slack channel for runners here at the motley fool is kinda surprising that the Marine Corps marathon, which is so well organized and has Gatorade in water every two miles had an eight mile stretch with. No, I should be fair. Maybe I missed them. Although I was desperately looking for them. And I didn't see that. I did see two porta Johns near the Smithsonian. I don't know if they were for the race. And there was a long line at tourist. So there was no way of stopping the should've let you cut you had a bib on I was gonna run into a restaurant crystal city, but this is kind of part of the fun of a marathon. Right. Like stuff happens. That's doesn't go to plan and you have to get through it. I mean, I still got in three seventeen or just under that, which is fine. So but you had a huge victory. No medical tenth is no medical tent, which was amazing. Thanks to the weather which was about twenty five degrees cooler than the last two weather personally. Whether so thank you to the Marine Corps marathon folks for ranging. Great, weather and not even all that much wind. It wasn't too bad. Although you said the bridge was a little windy or for you. It felt there's there's a bridge for those of you don't on the chorus which is everybody. It's actually very cool because like mild twenty year fallen apart almost everybody's hitting the wall. And then there's this mile and a half of this terrible highway bridge over the river, which is completely desolate. And I love challenges like that in a marathon. You're the one I love that kind of thing. Like, here's where you get. There's no glory here. There's nobody cheering you get to reach down inside. And see if you are really tough enough, you know, and it just felt easier this year, despite the squeegees nice, but. Yeah. No. The the weather definitely helped no medical tent for me. I was about fourteen and a half minutes faster than last year. So that was nice new PR? What was your time four Forty-six four forty so. Yeah. So you were cooling new heels for ninety minutes by the time. I was crossing probably in the bathroom q. At that point in time. It was great my wife and daughter were right at the finish line. So I got to go over and give them a smooch. I decided years ago the first time they came to see me at a marathon. I ran over and give them a kiss that. I would never ever skip them. If I saw them at a race. I would never blow by if I could get to them. I would always go over and give them a kiss because running a marathon is really selfish thing, you train a lot your family pays and the least I could do is at so in my eighty fifth race, I managed also get that done at never skipped it. I felt like that was good nice. So you've done eighty five marathons in your lifetime. So between the two of us we've done. Let me do the math. Eight marathons kudos to the two of us. Not even that many. I know some I know so many lunatics of done hundreds I guarantee you almost everyone listening right now shaking their head not at me at you. Because they're like what eighty five marathons? That's a crazy person. I could still I'm retiring because I'd just rather spend time with my kid. I'm not as fast as I was in two thousand fifteen I was running under three anytime to fifty was my PR, which isn't that great? But it's respectable and I can't do it anymore. So really, I'm just I'm I'm kind of not courageous enough to run slow races. I have more fun when I'm running quickly. So I just rather hang out with my wife and kids so but I'll come and cheer for you. You know, I I don't know if I'm joining you in retirement or not I'm gonna take I'm going to wait for my legs to stop hurting. And then I woke up this morning. And I didn't remember that. I'd run a marathon. So I feel like I'm I'm good. Oh, really? Yeah. Oh, no. I totally remember is still remember now anytime I'm dealing with stairs. I absolutely remember that on Sundays running a marathon. Yeah. Those of you haven't done it. It's it's not going up stairs. It's going downstairs. And you you exceleron guys. Your legs are beat your sh there shredded. And you can't push back. So that gives me a great opportunity to say, thank you to the listeners who have emailed me and hit me up on Twitter. Before and after the race offering support. So thank you very much for that. But you just reminded me that it was two years ago. I had done my first one, and I remember. I go to the medical tent, and then I get home and rest, and and you know, I'm sore. But I'm okay, and I wake up in bed Monday morning, and I'm just lying in bed. I'm looking at my phone, and I have an Email from a listener whose in Europe. And he sends me this Email saying, hey, if you're reading this you've completed your marathon, congratulations. I've done some marathons in my lifetime. And here's a tip used the handrail no-no said here, here's a tip. When you go downstairs walk downstairs backwards. Go go down backwards, and it'll be easier on your legs, and I just sort of made a face when I was like I was like what what is he talking in that hemisphere at work. But I just thought well, I'm not having any trouble with stairs. And then I got out of bed and every muscle in. My legs was screaming at me. And in fact, the next two to three days, I was going downstairs. Backwards much to the delight of my children who are laughing at me. Yeah. It is called delayed onset muscle soreness or domes for a reason it after the race. It's not so bad next day, though, my legs didn't hurt that much this time around. I I was actually a little disappointed. I kind of liked that really sore legs after because then you know, you did someone noxious thing to say I'm so upset that I wasn't in more pain. That's, but that's kind of why you do those. That's what you do them. That's not why I do the longtime ago, I quit taking ibuprofen or anything after a race to try and cut it. I said to my I said to myself like you paid good money for those sore legs. So enjoy it. It's weird. You just turn switch in your head turn that switch. I'll see if I can do that such as and thanks for being here as always people on the program may have interest in stocks. They talked about in the molecule climent formal recommendations for against so buyer stocks based solely on what you hear. That's going. Do it for this edition of market for the show is mixed by Dan Boyd? I'm chris. Thanks for listening. We'll see you tomorrow.

HR 2: Reunited, and it feels so good!

"Saddam with here on. ESPN streaming September Fourth Disney's new movie. Moulin. Available to Disney plus subscribers who unlocked premier access. L. Zia's you, and I have reunited here in the afternoon. Good. It does feel so good There has been a farewell recently. And it's not just keyshawn even though we will have him it at five thirty. He will join us but a farewell from the world. Fast. Food, Taco Bell has announced today it is eliminating five more menu items including the beloved Mexican Pizza. Did you call her beloved? That's what it says here in the store. 'cause. Very, many people beloved it it it it I wasn't a huge fan I'm not a huge Taco Bell Person Anyway. Especially when you live in a town like come la were I can go You know ten minutes from my house. In Harbor City and go to Tacos Galore show or something like that or do we can go to Mexico I mean you can't do that yes, there is that. When I lived in Pasadena. There was A. Great spot it was a truck called Las California tacos. And it was on fair oaks and it was fantastic I used to go there all the time when I lived in Pasadena and there was another place. In Pakistan that was great. I used to go to called last three at tackles. Show like there's a million places here and I feel like Laura is Laura's Laura and I are on the same boat here. We are very much offended by anyone who goes to Taco Bell if you live here in southern cal. To. Be a Latino officially yes. Among Tina. I'm actually looking at the plaque. You guys gave me right now you woke up early. I haven't been to talk building years. Yep. Like I've ever since I moved to La. Seaney Taco Bell just makes me wonder like crash into it and stay stop. What are you doing my spot in Silverlake Diablo's Diablo's had like this pork belly. But a Taco, thing that I used to just just saying in right now after swallow because my mouth watering so I do not care if TACO bill adjust its entire menu I'm not eating that when I e something authentic. Yeah I. Agree. That's just kind of the way it is Laura tell people because I remember. If we I bet you buy open up the phones right now we will have Latino people who will blaspheme and say that Taco Bell is good. I think Manuel from Gardena is like Taco Bell everything I I know I remember that but. I. It was so horrifying shows like what I mean Greg, Liking del Taco, Taco Bell Okay I get it. I don't like Taco Bell. Don't put me in that Taco Bell World. Del Taco the whole story. Up But. Now, more a you're actually not even a fan of King Taco Aching Taco man and I told you, I told the owner that 'cause I know them by a hate now there though people but I don't like King Taco because it's like. It's like a local fast food Taco chain. TACO. Bell, which is a little different. I won't say this though. As much as I'm not a fan of the food, I still love the commercials they get special are excellent. Yeah, right? Yeah. They do get the marketing the marketing. Yeah. That you WANNA was. Eight seven seven seven SPN do you partake in some Taco Bell while living here? Like you'd be, you should be you should get your card revolt, right your southern California cars. Especially you're Latino Card revoked if you are hitting up Taco Bell Eight, seven, seven, seven, ten, ESPN L Z before I went to break and welcome back obviously I was teasing a former Laker rip the organization but specifically, one of the Laker greats in Magic Johnson. Diangelo Russel was on the JJ redick podcast and was. From. Former LAKER number two overall pick the Angela Russell. He was asked if he ever took any of his traits personally and he says quote Hell Yeah bleep only La because Magic Johnson kicked me in my ass on the way out and I didn't understand that I was kinda young and naive to why and what was the point of him doing it that way do you believe the magic did the Angelo wrong in the way he discussed remember it was a lot of we needed leadership and the Point Guard Position Lonzo will provide that it was a lot of shade. There was wasn't shade. It was a spotlight. Okay. Wasn't being subtle about it and he didn't do him wrong. He did him a favor he did him a favor. Because listen. De Ngelo Russell is a talented offensive basketball player I love the fact that he's a lefty. You know like diversity that's diversity I like his confidence now. He didn't work hard and he wasn't a leader. And I'm sorry that issue pulled. With you know, Iggy, Azalea. That doesn't sound like somebody you want to your locker room right and he needed to own up to that in a real way and I, don't think he ever did. So, as much as they might have hurt to be jettisoned out of La there is a reason why you're already on your thirteen, Bra. And it's not because of free agency. Because fourteen by the way, this is fourteen young break, your La Net Brooklyn Ordinance State. Late and now how come on Dog Utah Magic. If magic if you ever say magic, Johnson's name again you better say thank you. That's what you should be saying. Yes, because he actually played really well in Brooklyn, he's an all star Yeah I mean he celebrity all star team he was added later I believe. Yes. Yeah. Which is fine, which is fine which. Resume and listen. I. Certainly. There's an argument. I could have been made that at the end of the day when we think about who he was traded to make room for he's the better player. But and he's probably now has developed into the better leader. So. There is an argument to be made that Magic Johnson traded away the better player to draft a lesser player but it was because of all the things that he was doing as a Laker that magic kinda didn't have a choice I don't believe the Angelo would have been an all-star had he stayed a Laker? I don't believe he would have I, believe he would have worn out his welcome anyway. So be moved early has put a chip on his shoulder and if he uses that to become a better player and become the leader that magic want it, then he should be thanking him for it. He didn't favor eight, seven, seven, seven ESPN do you believe the Angelo would have become an all star here in La do you think it would have worked out? Here a either way eight, seven, seven, seven, ten, ESPN, eight, seven, seven, seven, ten, three, seven, seven, six weeks people that want to weigh in on the dodgers discussion real quick that you miss that are you are you in on the extra innings rule now? Has It grown on you? It's grown on me no all we love it now I'm in no no no you know. Maybe if I was still like on the morning show with. Key, and Travis and I had to get up really early. Maybe I will love it.

Correct and Elza S. and L.'s you didn't hear this part of the conversation I was saying that. Fernandes teach Totti's junior is one of the best players in baseball this year but I'm not putting him top three in the game right now. It's too early to early I mean if he's a top to an MVP candidate, you think it's way too early to make him a top three baseball player this year. This year. Overall the love of God I mean we're. If you want to argue that Greg I, mean. If you just said. Me Hold on you just said Greg he's a top two and L. You agreed top to NL.

I'm kind of piggyback of the other man is not you know you can't compare Taco struggles to Taco bill and I think what Mexicans are love Taco bill so much is because you've got to understand late eighties early nineties you could've walked to the corner talk now we've got them everywhere back. Then you had to drive east delay or something you know Boyle Heights to get. Locals I remember having to drive out there for like an authentic Taco. So we have to settle for Huckabee not so you can't blame us it's not dodgy Finn and twist like all that and plus like you say the marketing was awesome I remember shack even have some little thing going on with them so and keep Tacos is awesome to saw sorry law you can't lacking TACO. Laura it's I. Mean I get it I. Guess It's not authentic like I said but keep with talk the St Louis and historical central for a reason you know. All right buddy. Thank you for the call stay safe stay healthy I where to get the keyshawn here in the second. We'll ask Sean about his Taco his favorite Taco. Spots. In La in a second? Obviously, we'll talk some football. We'll talk some Lakers with him and his PAC twelve news. The PAC twelve could be back playing sports here very soon we'll get to all that key in a second. All right. So Ki Ki is going to join us here. Now key, what is the what are the LEGIT TACO SPOTS IN LA? Give me Keyshawn legit TACO spots in La. Like like street Taco like whatever you want when you hear Tacos what do you think? Where are you running? To. Go. To. I'M GONNA go to Sola Luna. In William. Hill Stars Zana. Okay. Okay. I'm. GonNa go to Tito tacos. In La on benefits and on supposedly in Washington. Sure And then I got then I got some small. Like independent places that I would go to. We'll give aims hook them up. I don't know the name of. They just they just know when you arrive Mr Keyshawn how are you sir? Why are you guys asked that? We were talking about it because we is in the news that Taco Bell decided to take the Mexican pizza off their menu. So that's what got us on. Yeah that data that's not That's not real. Mexican food man. According to some of the Mexicans who've clients so they call it is. Really they defended it. Now. We don't have any verification at their Mexican or not. They just tell us just saying how. Ever eaten a Taco Bell Mexican Pizza. The TACO Supreme Tacos Burritos, Saul cream and onion and a little kameido in it. Yeah. I've done all that but the Taco pieces no man no I haven't done that either but I've done a little elections. A. Little. Chiluba. Oh. Hey key how many games Lakers gonNA GONNA, win the series in. I think they I think they would've cry. Is Picking on the way. He is going to lead the way. Man Stop. Lead that guy alot man I think. At the end of the day. Yeah. I. Think they go. They go away from that philosophy. In the regular season where we tried to play small ball with big. And we got run up and down the court instead of allowing Anthony. Davis Lebron James and Dwight Howard. mcghee. Dominate understand training to for three is not great math but at the end of the day, if you knocking down them to. And you get filed because they can't do anything else with you at the line you hit your free throws. You'RE GONNA get three points out of that. and. So I look for Frank Vogel and that crew to play big ball and let Anthony Davis get on the blocks against you know. Six five six seven type guys that got to try to defend them winkler's. Assuming that the Lakers do easy to dismiss this team that did not look very good for much of the series they just had with okay. See and moves needs to be made. Are you trading harden or are you trading? Westbrook. Who are you going to keep if you had had only one? Now May I ask you who's the coach though right who who's the coach if it's tied Lou and his philosophy is such. That both of those guys coexist coexistent work together. Then you try to keep them If you try to move them. I probably would just move westward. And try and get hardened. Go Back to plan the way he played in okay. See when he wasn't the main focal point in this Mike Dan Tony System he's allowed to shoot the basketball as many times as he's been doing because he's a prolific scored there's no question about it but clearly when he was with Kevin Durant and Westbrook and in part perk in those guys, they played a different style and he was effective at doing that I don't think you can win. A national NBA title with him being the guy that's dropping forty points on your night. Qui Do you believe though that? That this, this series will will force the Lakers to maybe play Anthony Davis more at center because I think that they're there'd they're at their best when he decides to do that and I feel like he seems reluctant at times I mean I don't think it seems I mean he's talked about it but I feel like that. This is a series where we're going to see a lot less Dwight Howard Javale McGee. What do you think? The. I think that's true to a degree but again, we don't WanNA play. Spe- ball, Houston, rockets pay up and down speed of. Temple. And in order to slow the temple you WANNA, put those big on the floor. Now you say, whatever just bring them out and they don't pull the threes. Okay. Well, bring him out because what we can't do like I said before Georgia's go. And play, basketball game the way we did. Several months ago in a regular season when they handed us or lunch, you allow Anthony Davis to be Anthony Davis and I don't think he will be reluctant in a role that he knows that I helped the team win by going on the block tonight you could call it the five you can call it before but put his butt on the block how you Know in in let him go to work on a six seven, six, five type James Harden in in in Pisa Tucker going to be the ones that are going to have to guard you know and what? What what is a sixty seven, seven feet I mean wink fan puts him at eight feet tall maybe ten feet tall like these are small compared to him. Key I I want to switch toppings briefly only because this is a very serious subject to your expertise can really shed some light. There was a professor at George Washington, university. Who was teaching African American history? And apparently for years, she has been pretending to be black, but she's actually just a white woman for the city. Are. We at the point now where that's okay. Sushi she keep her job key should be dismissed because she lied about being black. Okay. Let me ask you this. I don't know all the details. Let me ask you fit. This she lie about being black because she wanted to teach the subject. Or did she or did she? Not Really, know. Her race is she learned through one of those test kits. I. Mean like I I need a little more context. In looks as if she belied in order to get financial support from cultural institutions in order to help her write her book and do her studies as she was building her career. Okay. Now, I'm looking at her. Looking at her Patriot seats, she probably should be removed. Of Her duties at George Washington University. Because she played the system in which you probably shouldn't have. You would've told me that she did it because she really wanted to teach African American studies and and it was. You know she just felt she could identify more than yeah. But if she was doing it for financial gain, then she should probably be fire. You Okay so I just think it's hilarious. She's from Kansas City. Didn't that happen with the lady and nwpp All those. All exactly. Dulles all also you know. But this young lady from from from Gw University does she look? Oh. Okay. So I'm assuming she's a fair skin looking. Woman opposed to a Dorky and like me. She's more Klay Thompson. Draymond. Green. Right. Michael Thompson and Klay Thompson and she is me yet. Yes, this is correct. This is correct. Well she probably should lose their job if she did it for economic gain. Okay enough key speaking of universities PAC twelve the news came out earlier today could return sooner with a partnership allowing the implementation of rapid covid nineteen testing that could be done in fifteen minutes, and there's talk about potentially now playing football even as early as November and hooking up with the big ten, maybe a lining their schedules. How surprised are you about this new development? I'm not totally surprised about it because. They've not always be ongoing research in anything can happen at any given moment. So I'm not surprised by even though they shut it down just because you shut something down doesn't mean it is gone forever I. Mean we see. People. Close things they're going to reopen things and closed the they're going to reopen things going to revisit it I think. Getting everybody all in a tizzy is that. PAC. Twelve in the big ten didn't wait. They just went ahead and did it oppose to waiting it out which I'm fine with? but I'm not fine with keep trying to push the issue playing I just I don't know just. Why don't you? Just Leave it alone till next year man from trauma to play you got all these kids. You jerky need kids around by we're GONNA play. We're not GONNA play. We're GONNA play. We're not GONNA play I. Don't know what we're doing. Like stopping already enough. You know you confusing these kids kids that are opting out to get ready for the NFL. Now, all of a sudden you're GONNA play. This it's too much. If they were to to say, let's go ahead and let's do this. As a parent of a young man who played high school ball, would you let keyshawn junior play this year I probably Would depending on what the guys in the white long jackets with the pins in the pockets tell me which are the doctors, the MD's scientists what are they telling me? What are the long term effects what I need to Kim formation I need to I need to know I don't need to listen to football coaches and athletic directors. I need to talk to the scientists and learn the long-term effects of Kogi nineteen. You know what are the chances I I need more information Now if one of the professors. was discovered pretending to be blackmore's actually Change reminded all. Wait one more time. If one of the professors. Discovered to actually have been white but was pretending to be black all this time. Would that change your mind? Crazy. Stupid. No. I. Wouldn't change my mind for that. I need to know. I need to talk to the people like, docker. Faouzi on these talk to those type of people. You know. In in in learn. LEARN LEARN ABOUT I. More. Messing with you. He's messing with you. You didn't hear. It's the same question. He asked you about the lady at Georgetown GW whatever. I mean look I. I don't know if she'd black white I don't know a professional will be black or white I just know that I need to talk to the doctor. Okay. What they do done deal. Kisha Judson. George the Donald and Lt, granderson. It's okay to play sports spread in terms terms spreaders, in fact, the sports. Well let me tell you something. All you do is talk to germs betters. Now every morning, I listened to that damn show. The where where are you complaining about those germs spreaders you talked to every morning his guests. A, little different. Bit that the. Germ spreader but there's no question about it. But as if you noted, I never include myself in the media. Curry's. Key, we'll talk to you next week man. A. Good teach on Jalen Zubin every morning five nine here on the station. He's going to join US every week at five thirty on Thursdays so. Maybe, we'll switch it around because there may be laker games and stuff like that will have to figure some stuff out l. you and I can talk about the PAC twelve a little bit. We got a short segment coming up plus I've got a movie debate for you. I will ask the audience real quick if you want to line up right now eight, seven, seven, seven, ten years be at eight, seven, seven, seven, three, seven, seven, six, are you with Kishan? That the PAC twelve should just shut it down and not jerk the kids around any more about playing and not playing in this that and the other I want to talk to the audience at Eight, seven, seven, seven, ten ESPN. So we'll do that. We'll take your calls. We got what you need to know all of it coming up in three minutes time for what you need to know. We begin with an NBA game update L Z Granderson, and we have the Boston Celtics and Toronto Raptors tied at eighty five with just under nine minutes to go the gutty little raptors trying to defend their title trying not to go down three zero. What do you make of what you've seen those far while I'm waiting to see what the reps are going to do my friend because pass up a night have been defined by referee blunders as much as great play. Hopefully, they don't get involved in this and we get to see something go down to the wire I. Still Think the Boston Celtics are going to pull this out there just shooting the ball better and eventually you know the the scrapping they Toronto back into is going to run out and they won't have to make some good shots and that's not happening for them tonight. Yeah. It isn't. They've done a better job in the second half of hitting shots. They were putrid in the first half and. Yet Putrid, they've shot twenty one percent in the first half they're up to thirty percent now. So that means they're shooting a little better in the well over twenty one to thirty over a span of a quarter at least a couple more shots you know what I mean. So they're eating about a third of their shots if they can get to thirty five I think they can win but it just they haven't even gotten there. Any of these games those far that's kind of the key place right if if you want to win an NBA game, so we've got that. What is happening in the US? Open. Today that we should keep an eye on. What is happening you'll what is already had happened. What has happened happened was Francis Tearful. Out of Maryland african-american brother. Came back from two down from band down two sets to one came all the way back one in a fifth set and the reason why you want to pay attention to him is because for so long American men have not been able to win a major championship and has been my belief is because we're not sending our best athletes are best athletes in different sports when. You Look at France Chiro Oh you look at somebody could have been a football player, a basketball player chose tennis and the ATHLETICISM is really showing. He had a great run last Australian Open, and hopefully this year he can at least get to the semi-finals of the US Open to give them hope going forward. There you go. All right. Cool. So that's what's going on there. In the NBA Jaama Rant, the rookie of the Year Zion finished third behind Ken Kendrick Nunn. What is your level of surprise there that Young Zion finished third in the vote I'm shocked that the voters actually used their heads and not their hearts. If they were using their hearts. They would at least make Zion second because he's degray story. He's the one one's talking about Blah Blah, Blah Blah Blah. Right your hair told you that the do play like twenty gains. And you can't be rookie of the year. You didn't make it at least half a year. Yeah. No, that's fair. That was the same debate they had during the Joel Embiid your remember Malcolm Brogden won the rookie of the year that year. Now Look Malcolm Brogdon, is a nice player. I think John is legitimately a franchise player. Who Do you think? Let's say they're both healthy. Who Do you think has the the bigger impact John Mirant or Zion? Boy. 'cause the health thing with the big issue because when I see Zion I hear, I see injuries I'M GONNA say Zion's going to have the better career if they're both healthy but I don't believe. Unfortunately, Zion going to be able to stay healthy. Okay. Fair enough look I think that that's a big question, right? I don't think there's any doubt about that. He looked great before they went into the bubble. Then he had to leave the bubble for a family issue and then he looked a little lethargic I thought at times. I was trying to be much kinder than you clearly but he was a little authority. Okay but he towards the end of the stoppage right in March? You could see what everyone else saw God. He was like Whoa you know Oh God. Yeah. But here here's the big concern for me. It's his gate. He has a weird gate and I think it's because he's knock-kneed or he's pigeon toed, and that's going to be wear and tear on your joints. Particularly your knees with that kind of weight in the amount of time that he explodes off the ground. That's the reason concern about his health. Well, that's I mean remember I did the story I did his Christmas game and I. Did the story because I spoke to him about them in theory teaching him to walk differently and run differently and all that stuff. It's gotten a little better. It's not as pronounced as it once was but you're right there. That is absolutely a thing he said to me then during Christmas that it is a thing that they get on him about. So you are one hundred percent right about that. Lastly here the Nintendo switch. I bought one for my daughter last year. To Release Classic Morio Games. Now it's only GonNa be a limited time. You can only buy them from the Nintendo e shop or at retailers until March of twenty twenty one. What is your favorite? Mario Game. DA, man I'm not in my bag on this question really you didn't play Mario Brothers and back in the day. Donkey Kong Donkey Kong Mario game it is. Yeah. I guess there wasn't Mario then yeah donkey Kong is donkey Kong Junior. Oh Donkey Kong Junior. Junior. Yeah. Now you know they have diddy Kong to. Sean Puffy. No not. No did he I think diddy. Kong. is also one of the children I believe if I recall correctly. I actually have gotten back into Mario Games because we get, we get those kind of games from my six year old and we let her play them on the weekends and. which we have like daddy daughter of video game time. Every Saturday and yeah, some of those games. Hard. Harder than they were when I was a kid that's for sure. Yeah you know it's like I don't know at which point I cannot identify which year I stopped playing video games, but this isn't like riding a bike. Zone? No you gotta play by play man. Yeah. Yeah for sure. I think there's any question I still play playstation occasionally I'll play like the sports games. I don't play any of the other games. Like I play to K. I. play bad in occasionally different gangs. You know what I mean like play those kind of games but I don't get to play my own video games very much anymore usually will play with my daughter like I said, every Saturday we set aside like an hour or two and just play, and then that's pretty much it but it is fun. It is fun. For sure that's what you need to know. So. L Z dreaming steps September fourth. Let's not forget Disney's new movie Milan experience the legend of Milan, as she fights to defend her family and the Kingdom of Italy Disney plus subscribers when lock the premier access by the way Clinton Yates will join us at six fifteen and Marc Spears will join us at six forty. Yup so the Big News Marc Spears had the news of Steve Nash going to Brooklyn. We'll talk to him about that will ask them thoughts on the Lakers and the rockets as well. We'll get into the Lakers rockets or Clinton and his thoughts on. The Major League Baseball Trade deadline that happened earlier this week Clinton obviously a huge baseball fan like us. So we'll get a lot of that stuff in with Clinton but the PAC twelve stuff L. Z. Keyshawn said. I'll open up the phones at eight, seven, seven, seven, ten, ESPN, eight, seven, seven, seven, three, seven, seven, six he said, maybe they should stop jerking the kids around about playing not playing maybe they should just forget about it and just move forward. Now Look in theory I agree with him but I think we both impracticality because of the finances right that it's going to be hard to probably make that happen I just think that. As a society we've already crossed that moral threshold is that fair to say Well I mean. It's hard for me to Blaine Right. Conference directors. Kicked can I pause for one second I need to do this read here my apologies i. don't mean to cut you up. Go ahead. I'm sorry. I've guy was saying not as a joke. Back yes. I it's hard for me to put all the blame on conference directors, university presidents, eighties, coaches when you have parents and students themselves also saying we WANNA play. So I think actually by seeing that that gave some of those after mention names or positions of bit of cover if you will because they can from a moral standpoint go hey, they wanNA play like we're not making them play for a revenue they WANNA play and we're trying to honor their wishes. Now we both know that it's not as if they're going to resist. A parent wanting to play or resist students wanting to play and stand up and say, no, not always too much risk or hours. You're not GONNA do that. But I think when you start to see petitions, go around and rallies happening it leased masive feasible to say, Hey, we try to do the right thing but the students and parents they want to take the risk. Yeah. So what do you do in that spot right? It just puts everyone in a compromising position. That's why I wanted to talk to the audience because we all not not all of us but a lot of people listening right have kids, and if you're in that spot, what do you do? You know what I mean like how do you handle it I I've said if it were my kids I'd be like now we're good this year just you know it is what it is. Now because this is the way I look at it if your kid is good enough to play in the pros. It's probably GonNa Happen Anyway you know what I'm saying like I. Mean if they're legitimate like star level type player in college that means that chances are whether it's Basketball or football they're going to get that opportunity in some way shape or form, and I think that scouting is show. More advanced than it's ever been in these professional sports that I think that look it's not say they don't guys don't fall through the cracks or don't fall through the cracks but. For the most part. These. People end up in the right places and look if it's just like they're just a good athlete, but they don't have aspirations to become pros. Then you know what? We we did a whole campaign. Right US here on this station you know. Boss Betty pantsuits came up with it. It was a great job where we talked we did the senior shoutouts right where these poor kids had to deal with the high school situations right and every even college we talk some college kids. So it's it's just it's an unfortunate symptom of the Times right because of what we're dealing with and I think that life isn't always fair and part of being a parent means you got have tough conversations with your kids. Absolutely, and the way life isn't fair. Sometimes, you have to have tough conversation with those parents to correct. As I said, his parents who are also out there saying, Hey, let us play as if they're out there in the fields right and I get it. You know my son was a you know captain of his track team in high school had a division. One scholarship offers to run track I was very much looking forward to see him doing that he chose not to. And I had to grow up and respect his wishes and so I understand you know the idea that you know maybe people feel as if it's always about the students but sometimes it's the parents who are living vicariously through their kids or who just want to see their kids out there. So they can brag they to need to chill out a little bit and go listen. You're not really factoring in all of the risks now if I was a university president. Or if I was a conference president or director I would be turning to my legal team. And having them come through all of the potential pitfalls and I wouldn't make it a moral argument. I wouldn't challenge a whether or not You know parents have a right to protest or students had a right to petition and say we WANNA play I was simply say to my board of directors and trustees that we can expose ourselves this way because according to our legal team, we could be taken to the woodshed at any of these students or anyone who's who's important terms of getting these games you know done. comes down with this virus and becomes ill or ends up with like depreciated lung capacity Heart Elman or you know worse worse things than that. So I would not want kids to play to keyshawn point but my rationale would be more towards the legal ramifications than the moral ones eight, seven, seven, seven, ten ESPN cures to get people's thoughts on that. The other thing we've been discussing have the. Extra inning rules grown on you now L. Z you. They know they have not but why? Other than the morning show thing that you mentioned that now you can watch games but like, is there like a legitimate like baseball reason? You don't like it yeah. It puts pitchers in very difficult positions unfair positions. You know it's like what happened to Kinley. You know it's like. I don't think that it's fair. That you're starters and relievers all get to have nice healthy sort of clean for the most part innings. and. Then all of a sudden. Now, the pitcher who comes in for the twelfth any whatever has to have a guy already second. I just don't think that's fair. It is a little exciting though. I mean it's it's a little exciting. It's a little exciting. I like to see the build up right and part of the building is just trying to get on base. Understand. China's speed up the game but I believe there are other things you can do Georgia speed the game besides putting a man on second, for instance. Put a shot clock on the amount of time that she can scratch yourself and spit him between pitches. By the way Greg is runner that. Second base is that an earned runs that count as an earned run? No that is not an earned run. For the pitcher it just goes across. Okay. So it's like a team earned run S. Anybody's statistics. I don't care about that. Okay. The stats just care about your competitor and you want an opportunity to win. You know like the stats I get the stats especially when it comes to contract time you WANNA be able to say your era was this study other I totally understand that but just wanna a competitive level you want to be in the best place to win and having someone come in on second base doesn't put the pitcher in the best position just to win as a competitor. I mean, well, I think that's fair. There's so many times that relievers especially come in with runners on base all the time like they inherent. The inherent runners all the time. So pitching with the guy on second is really kind of an of earn bed that guy earned that SPA on the base. He wasn't just Jimmy. Totally, agree totally agree with that where you are. You're you're just giving this spot but I do think it does speed up the game and this is in a while it doesn't hurt against your your era or any of your statistics except for wins and losses possibly if you're that great of a relief pitcher and you're pitching in the in the later innings. That's part of your job is holding that guy on second base and making sure that he doesn't get across. Yeah, and again, it just adds an extra layer of intrigue right and well, we always complain about baseball and that's why I'm curious to hear how people feel about it. Now after all this time is that we always hear that baseball's boring and it's just it's not exciting enough. Well, here's an extra layer of excitement and. It's worked out for the dodgers specifically. I believe you've seen it. Yesterday's game is the reason I brought this up because it's like I was adamantly against it l z from the beginning, and now over time it's absolutely grown on me and yesterday I was watching that I was like man this is fun to watch. It also adds an extra layer of strategy to the game and baseball had lost that certainly in the analytics era. It has and listen baseball's gotTA figure something out. Right I. Don't think this is the silver bullet. I wouldn't be opposed to lowering the number of innings anyway. I think that is okay. What I don't want to have happened is that games are decided because you're doing gimmes and that's a Gimme. Say you know. We're going to start this guy on second. That's Gimme, and then you know it's just. I'm not a purist period. I want bet flips I want I want. I want excitement. I want fun. I want music I'm not one of those off my lawn kind owed is no no, you're not. That's why I'm. That's why I'm wondering I was Kinda surprised to be honest that this is the position that you take, but I just don't like the ideal of just putting a guy on on second base because we want to in this game faster. Is there one of the rule changes that you? Liked. What have I liked? Do you like the one where the minimum batters for the for the Pitcher I'm trying to think I'll tell you what am I rule I tell you. Will actually three batters actually find myself not liking a lot of things. About the changes him get off the lawn guy because all you'll do you have become that and owed. I mean you might be you know sneaks up on you. sneaks up on you and I'm trying to think what do I mean do you like all the rule changes? hitter thing like, Oh, I love the Disney hitter I was in on that from the beginning. Not Me. So Weird I. Yeah. Just I don't like the disk because I don't like the fact that alleviate so much pressure from the manager. That's a key part of what a manager does. And they just take that away some uniformity you need some uniformity in the sport. Then have I'll go back the other way and why the designated hitter why not? The other way now, but nobody wants to see pictures, they hit like the I think if you look at the last several years, they average like a buck fifty nobody wants to see somebody in a sport where it's already tough enough to hit like why do you want to add an extra person there who can't hit you know why? Because everybody needs a stephen. Adams on their team. No you were just lamenting Stephen Adams now he's awful. So. Why would you want that because everyone needs one Oh. Lord. I don't feel that eight forty. Forty seconds George Scores One, ninety, nine. Yeah it is. One Oh, one, thousand, nine, Boston thirty, five seconds left as Z pointed out bosses up to. Timely play-by-play Elsie. You know what time? What time is it is time for the rough domestic game time. They did plenty of that last night. Good Laura. Cheese yeah. So Toronto's take time out here and well, it's run the ball so they can either tie it or take the lead year. It's crazy because that first game was a blowout and the last two have been this. It's basically come down to the last possession, which is kind of what I expected the whole series it just hasn't bounds Toronto's way I just feel like as a basketball fan, I want a longer series between these two teams. So I'm I'm openly rooting for Toronto just for that. No No. No I'm with you. I'm with you. I mean I don't WanNA sweep. That's for sure. I. Think these are two really talented teams with individual players that are worth seen. Fred. Vanfleet by the way. Has Really morphed into just a really good basketball player like. Paid thirty, million a year whatever the hell. You know what I'm saying like that's just it. Let's go the phones here Real Quick Marcus in Pasadena what's up? Yeah, hey guys first time caller I. Love Your Show I think have. Actually a position and they take care of a lot of Cova patients. I think the scary thing about cove it is. Is. It's so different. Some people bounce back in the day. Not In a day like in a week and some people, three months out I've thirty, two year old who feel like fifty five and they're still recovering. So we don't really know what happened to these eighteen nineteen years old and I. I don't Know L. D. it said that it gives them cover I. Don't know that it does because they can always go back and say, well, yeah, the parents really wanted them to play. But you didn't tell us every. You hit stuff from us. So I think legally it's still going to come back and bite them on the but it's kind of like. concussions you know you know junior CEO always wanted to go back in the game and so no one question. But it's decades later that they said Oh. Well, we didn't know everything you didn't tell us everything. So I still think there's so much unknown about this league I I think it's it's it's a potential issue in the long run. For Your Points Thank you mark appreciate it. Stay healthy stay safe and thank you for what you do in the medical community we appreciate that. Yeah. Man. There is a lot of unknowns man it is Pretty Wild Chelsea, how all of this stuff. All, my kids. Got Explain what just happened here? Did you see the away? So the game was tied at one a- one. Toronto and Boston Okay Ka Kemba Walker I was careering Kemba Walker was dribbling losing his dribble dribbling around guys and did a behind the back pass in-between four different Toronto Raptors with a back door cut from Daniel, ties their center for a dunk and is now. Point five seconds left on the clock. TORONTO. is taken time out. We'll advance the ball to have court and Boston is half a second away from taking a three games to none lead. But could God that play was just incredible to watch which is too bad because Fred Ben read the person I just talked about hit right hell of a reverse layup in order tension. Should should've gotten a foul call on that to you should have gotten a foul call on that? Absolutely. Right Clinton Yates is going to join us on the other side. We'll ask him about we'll get into the College PAC twelve debate about them. If you're just hearing the news, the PAC twelve has got rapid testing. They've made a deal with the lab and it looks like sports could be coming back sooner. We'll get into that discussion with him. We'll talk baseball with him as well and the Lakers and it. So putting Yates, it's GonNa join us in two minutes. But for less than that, actually a minute.

The Sedano Show (HR 4)

"Sodano show anticommunist ski alan sleep in for george. Thanks again to l z granderson for hanging out the last hour my god elsie that story about the t._h._c. bath bomb is yes. I didn't even know that existed noted. I've seen bath bombs before just like they. They basically weekly turn the the bath water different colors. You know a lot of myrrh scented like you know my daughter. She's eight. She sometimes takes baths with bath bombs. Ed make it clear not see bath bombs just like regular bath by our house us and i had no idea that existed but i guess now that t._h._c. and cannabis has has become such a business you should you should at least expect that pretty much pretty much anything could be turned into a cannabis device or uh-huh mechanism for delivering t._h._c. I got a magic question for you. Sure so magic to me. Was everything that that's why i started watching sports to begin with. I watched an unfortunate. I never saw magic when a championship by the time i started watching magic eighty eight eighty nine right around there. Maybe even a little bit later than that. So magic was my idol and getting an opportunity to you know watch him and that's crazy to think sixty years old today obviously just kind of dawned on me but you saw it start seeing all these. He's highlights on twitter. <hes> who was your is there an athlete that stood out to you i mean literally i got into sports because of magic johnson just in in general <hes> the joy away of watching him play and be in that floor general <hes> but what who who has for me growing up in saint louis it was members of the baseball and then football all cardinals <hes> you know the the arizona cardinals were once the saint louis cardinals and my god they were a just horribly run franchise like they they were in their heyday in saint louis like in the late seventies early to mid eighties. They were every bit as badly run as donald sterling clippers like the absolute lowest cleveland brown can't get worse than that. Oh no no the the bidwell family bill bidwell when it was just him running that thing could put any bad owner to shame but my idols were members of like eighty two world series championship team like ozzie smith and willie mcgee george hendrick or on the saint louis football cardinals guys like neil lomax j._t. Smith or great great wide receiver vice ibrahima their pro bowl. <hes> return her her <hes> e._j. Junior i mean these. These are names aren't gonna mean anything to a lot of the people listening right now but they were awesome but it's a trip. 'cause you know like i mentioned in magic at sixty years old that that's kind of crazy and i remember and i think most laker fans do remember when when magic announce he was going to retire fire you. It's one of those you know listen. I'm not of course. It's a sports moment. It's different than any other. Moment is symbolic moments in this country's history in everything else from a sports perspective. I knew where i was. I knew what i was doing. <hes> it's it's it's surprising i was watching <hes> think it was yesterday yesterday magic in the all star game. They're shown him score against isaiah thomas those last few possessions it takes you back to that moment. Look man i. I actually don't think it's an exaggeration to put it. <unk> azam moment matt magic announcing his diagnosis as something beyond sports. I mean because they're you know obviously there was the element of being h._i._v. Positive and what that meant meant in this country at that moment you know with the the stigma frankly <hes> that was associated with h._i._v. and aids that for me has always felt elt like you know a everyone remembers where they were when they heard j._f._k. Was shot sure like i remember exactly where i was on. I was on u._s._c.'s seized campus. <hes> was my sophomore year. I remember who told me about it is my my friend scott and he actually was wearing a magic johnson jersey when he heard i heard the news and you know this was before twenty four seven news this was before you know social media. You know the internet barely existed so this was one of those things where like people would hear the news gradually like you know on campus the i was among many people who had no idea that this was going on and you know i i got told by my my friend. It just like it felt like the world stopped because even as somebody who had only been living in l._a. At that point you know a year and change and i had not been and a huge n._b._a. Fan or basketball fan it growing up or in high school just because saint louis is not a big basketball city intake long living in l._a. Way to know exactly what magic johnson meant you know in sports but also just to the city i mean it really felt like time stopped. When i heard that i mean i just remember being like wait what and then feeling like my god like magic johnson. He's not gonna survive this. It's <hes> <hes> it's <hes> it's a real when you look back on it and and again. I'm just mentioned it because turned sixty years old. There's all these lists of him. You know putting out these lists top movies as r._&_b. R&b artists everything else. Only thing i can think of is ma'am magic is sixty years old and doesn't understand how do top blacklists can't alphabetized title magic like that's not how it works you. You can't do it like you know. In magic clearly put thought into these lists like you get sixty of them very specific. It's funny. It's funny you were just talking about. It was mentioned. We're we're talking about. What magic educ is doing today and magic probably had that in april when he decided to step down for the lakers. I'm not gonna deal with this. I don't want to do this and we see all these photos of him. Vacationing is on yards and and everything else plank. Oh where was playing got today was at the lakers practice facility when we were down there for u._s._a. So definitely two guys do in two different things yeah and again happy birthday to magic sixty two years old and it has been a truly remarkable life therefore magic johnson coming up lebron. James has been leaning heavily this summer into onto taco tuesday but could he be running into some problems because of the way he's embraced this festivity getting that coming up next so donald show e._s._p._n. L._a. The sodano show indicate manetzky allen's lihua in for george and it is a wednesday but as everybody knows lebron james has been leaning this summer into taco tuesdays. Most most recently lebron actually did the taco taco tuesday down in wanna say akron <hes> with some kids <hes> there were there for <hes> for a foundation event. Yeah the i promise the that's part. The group dedicated a basketball court yep. He's doing continues doing a lot of good work with <hes> with this foundation same one that created that school in akron <hes> <hes> but i was thinking because of some news i saw today that lebron could perhaps be waiting into some problems because of his embrace of taco tuesday one hundred and eleven hundred. It's not that bad one hundred eight tacos and the last study. It's not that but i will say he does need to be careful. He definitely does need to be carefully doesn't go to your honestly out of all the athletes i've ever seen. He is the most like he's a specimen at. You can't even create that in a lab. Do okay especially this past season. I mean ak it's one thing seen from afar but this year get a chance to see him up close or you go to post game and you're seeing him in a locked room like what the hell how. How is this a man. Okay remember lebron on last season. He had the groin injury. Yeah eighteen games and i remember the periods leading up to him eventually taking the court again when he was practicing <hes> but hadn't been cleared and lebron was at this point working himself back into game shape working himself back to the place where everybody felt confident about clearing him and lebron often practices shirtless <hes> and i remember seeing him during a couple of these practices when they let the media in i put a jacket on slider saw lebron practicing shirtless looking ripped and i'm like this is lebron's equivalent right now of dad bob like this lebron looking dad bod'ed right now because he is by his standard disgusts me out of shape letting himself go like at this point and he's still look absolutely sculpted but anyway i was wondering if lebron could potentially find himself hearing from taco john's in in cheyenne wyoming because taco john's thirty years ago actually trademarked the phrase taco taco tuesday was created by. I talk oh john's. They've got a bunch of different taco john's. I guess all over the country. How long ago was this thirty years ago thirty years ago. It hadn't obviously they've been popularized. The same way like it didn't catch on the way taco tuesdays become what it is now but they eventually are. They apparently came up with this thirty years ago. Oh and they are known for getting very aggressively protective of taco tuesday going after people who've used it a recent example campbell. There is a microbrewery called freedoms edge brewing company which is just so wyoming but they actually taco john's went after freedoms edged brewing company because they use the phrase taco tuesday to promote a taco truck. That's outside the brewery on tuesdays wow and they took offense to freedoms edge or really anybody using the phrase taco tuesday. That's why i don't say the term i completely around it and you will get a cease and and desist by the time the show is over. It's felt to me and you guys can tell me if you think i'm wrong. That lebron has been moved towards some type of taco tuesday beal. All like lebron is going to you know in some way monetize his excitement for taco tuesday because he's really made this a thing and and lebron can pretty much brand anything and my concern is the minute. There's an announcement that lebron has worked out some type of deal with either like ortega teigen or you know picante or whoever some type of taco tuesday deal the people from taco. John's are gonna be coming after him because lebron's got deep pockets. Did you see ohio a state what they were trying to do today. The easy trademark the ohio state so school formerly known as ohio state university of seeking trademark on the word the for use on clothing clothing and hats according to the u._s. patent trademark office. I'd just rather have i i i. I don't even get how this stuff works. I think what they're trying to do is just protect tech the use of the in the ohio state for ohio state. No you're every gotta pay for every single time you use the aw now we need to take some taco john's tacos yeah because if they're whack you know what maybe we should. We should try to get somebody from taco john's on on this just just to see like a they do. They plan to go after lebron because it seems like they go after everybody in be like you know. What are they really going to see this protective of taco tuesday taco john's again <hes> they are based in cheyenne wyoming okay. I'm gonna call right now but they soon yeah they've. They've got taco tuesday. They've got different taco john's all over the place and they apparently quite protective of taco tuesday. I feel lebron l._b._j.'s next on their list might be saying it might be setting himself for a little bit of legal problem. I don't worry about training camp in this upcoming preseason schedule if <hes> if if anybody comes after l._b._j. Has nothing to do with basketball. We got issues. He should actually actually just cut out the middleman and just work out some type of endorsement with taco john's the sabbath that actually would not be a bad way to handle this. Just become the taco john's spokesperson. I gotta be honest. I've never heard of this place chain to and i know that i've never even heard of like six of them. Within like twenty minutes of egypt here we're in wyoming wyoming pick that explains a lot explains an awful lot about their situation situation. Are the dot coming up. The dodgers did something last night. During <hes> yesterday i should say during their fifteen one thrashing of the marlins that i think baseball should do more often. I think frankly sports should do more often talk about what that is coming up next donald show u._c._l._a. The creek letter betta data sodano show and kempinski alan sleep in for george and before we get into what the dodgers did last night that i think all all sports should a- adopt we looked up taco john's <hes> website during the break and based on the photos of their tacos and in their burritos which shall we say look very americanized. Look very like mid west style americanized like you know the the the whitest version of tacos imaginable. I don't feel like taco. John's has the right to be this territorial over taco tuesdays. Mike i agree i agree. They have a happy hour but snowfall that consider happy hour it probably in southern california you should not have any type of labelling or claiming that you have taco tuesday according to taco john's did they come up with the phrase. He's happy hour to like. Are we not allowed to say happy hours. No one else allowed to say it. I guess so i mean like you said many can't be taco john they this is a taco joint that serves sides of potato wedges like tater tots taco john you like. I don't feel like this place has earned the right to be this territorial over the phrase taco tuesday. You hear that i think they're trying to wiretap wiretap. We we've offended john taco. John's what is that. Do we know what the sounders when allen came back in just started when he came in. It's better it's much better literally. Hold the headphones. I'd just hold them and hold the plug right there too all right so the dodgers yesterday during their theref- fifteen to one thrashing of the miami marlins it was a great day for will smith he had two home runs <hes> the rookie catcher who's been really really good for the dodgers since getting called up six home runs and all four the dodgers a rookie dustin may recorded his first victory of his big league career. Five and two thirds innings gave up just three hits and one run five strikeouts. The gain got so out of hand dodgers favor that russell martin their backup catcher alan. Keep your hand literally holding this whole thing not move it. Try not to do not focus russell. Martin ended up pitching the ninth inning for the dodgers and he gave up. Just one hit was otherwise cleaning. He's maintained zero point zero zero e._r._a. Because russell martin has pitched three times this season. He's yet to give up a run like i said yesterday it was the only hit he's given up as pitcher and it didn't matter because he induced a double play and the first baseman who caught the aa complete. It was reliever adam caloric. They actually use adam karol eric at first base he he was a acquired by the dodgers at the deadline line. Sports should be like this during garbage time like all sports should be like this. That's how much of a lead the dodgers have in the west west. That's how much a lead. The dodgers had yesterday's game <hes> where they can. They can have russell martin and they could talk what we're gonna have a conversation about russell. Martin should be pitching game three in the n._l. L._c._s. i want all garbage time in all sports to be liked this because this happens in baseball in every now and then like the game is out of hand one way or the other the team. It's up or the team. That's behind will sometimes just as a way of you know either breaking some type of tension or just not wanting to burn an actual pitcher her will throw in like a third string catcher or something like that to pitch. You know it's a very it's a very baseball thing a. k. Are we having so the yankees. Thank you passed eighty games last or last night as well and so did the dodgers is pretty much set up and that's not to say houston's not obviously talented ending. It happened in the n._f._l. But what would that be for baseball if the dodgers and the yankees are playing in the world series come october. I mean i i feel like it's it's starting to come to that. Where the conversation will we'll be and i know we still got plenty of baseball left. But how great would that be if it's the yankees and the dodgers in the world series and that could be very very realistic. I mean i'm telling you it's what baseball wants. I mean this is baseball's. Greatest hope that these two teams just stay on this trajectory and the wanna say the last time and i apologize if i'm incorrect but wants to the last time these these two teams met brooklyn and it's more it's eighty one. I think was the last time it happened. I may be incorrect about that. I don't i don't think it's happened since the eighties i mean certainly for the dodgers they've <hes> last time they won was eighty eight and then they didn't breakthrough again till two thousand seventeen but obviously that i mean that's what baseball once you argues. What baseball needs in baseball needs the two biggest now the rancho or i mean certainly the biggest n._f._l. Franchise franchise and the biggest hail franchise meeting up in the world series. We know with some pretty interesting players stuff like that would be phenomenal for the league beyond the fact that it'd be great for dodger fans. You know it's crazy and and you can probably answer this a lot better than i can. When it comes to baseball but think about how much success the dodgers have i've had over the last few years and it pretty much means nothing if they don't win at all this season i mean it. Is it that simplified. I'm there's because they've already he done. It's not like they were limited in the first round or eliminated in the n._l. C._b._s. or anything that you've been to the world series twice and granted look the series against the astros astros. It's a coin flip either. One of those teams were good enough to win that year and last year. I think boston was by far the best team in baseball if they don't win this year you're literally looking at a franchise china has had incredible success as a failure well especially too. I think in this particular season it really is world series win or bust because at the deadline the dodgers were not as aggressive <hes> in trying to short any even relatives you agree with that or no no. I thought they should've gone for it. I thought that the way why wouldn't they like what what is is it because everyone's chasing them and they just didn't feel like they did. They feel like okay. Why are we going to give up some of these young prospects when we are by far the best team in baseball i when i think it's a combination of thinking that their weaknesses are relatively small and and also believing in these prospects a lot and you know in the case of dust in may he may end up in the rotation during the postseason. There's thoughts that gavin locks could end up. You know called up in september beyond like you know maybe that these guys will end up playing a role in the postseason but also just feeling like their potential is worth way more than a relief pitcher because we ultimately a they would have been going after a guy rightfully vasquez on the pirates and felipe vasquez. I mean mean the pirates. Four philippa vasquez by all accounts wanted a lot and you know you could argue that. There's a there's a stopping point that the dodge jared pat you know like okay. We're not going to go past this point but i think you can also make an argument and arguments. I made at the time that giving up a little bit too much i could have lived with it with the idea of i am trying to make myself as bulletproof as possible. I mean there's no such thing as truly bulletproof but bulletproof is possible possible because i can live with the idea of giving up you know prospect that in a few years would wish was on the team with the idea of i went all all in for this world series more than i'd be able to live with it. The idea of you come up short. I didn't do everything possible. This isn't the best analogy but i'll just say that the lakers if they didn't trade for anthony davis for example right. They didn't trade for a d. Well why did you go get lebron. You know you have to do it right now. If you don't do right now on granted the lakers aren't coming off of two trips to the n._b._a. Finals like the dodgers are two trips to the world series but they left. I think the dodgers left this. They left this hole that if they don't win a world series media and fans will say you had another opportunity. That's the thing come the trade deadline. That's the goal all in and for some reason you know held your cards just because they're they obviously have a reason for it but you would feel like man that's another missed opportunity very sensible front office and to be clear there very well run from incredibly runs even to even to even be an organization that had gone to the world series two years in in a row and you know here we are coming into this season already eighty wins. The numbers speak for themselves. Look there are very measured. Grounded sensible analytical medical front office you know very sober minded thinking very smart and by and large serve them extremely well but like they said in the movie risky business <hes> every now now and then you gotta say what the bleep and this is not a front office with a lot of what the bleep in them and i wonder if ultimately that lack of what the bleep could possibly lead to coming up short again. We'll end up seeing mike. You've got a commercial for taco john's for us. Yes yes the place that owns taco. Don't don't even say taco tuesday because they'll come after you tackle dot com tom that's john that's john for six dollars. Three crispy tackles potato santa twenty yeah turn i can just taste the authenticity like transported. I just came back from mexico a vacation from mexico uh-huh. It says if i just got transported back i'm not a month out commercial. I'm not saying i wasn't aladdin brother but you could've used a lab brother on there. You know that was john. I didn't that all right. That was not one that was that was taco. Ones that always taco john's john is eating a club sandwich right now got a tweet from the dawn at metal hoops had ain't nobody outside middle america going any taco. John's with john's in quotation marks like if that's your commercial again advertising the side of potato wedges with your tacos you you have no right to drink. You have no right to be this territorial over taco tuesdays. I don't care if you came up with it thirty years ago or not go to taco john's. That's right now. Say can i can. I get a sprite sprite diko. We saw the pictures of their str- like their street tacos. I mean forget like the hard shell tacos they they they serve their street tacos like i like mine which are wrong lessons cheese lettuce tomato and she's on their talk and that's what i love guile a little bit us launch on onion then they're they're doing. They're doing wrong actually on their website like street street. Tacos should also be in quotation marks like street tacos quote unquote. We're at the club out here not too long ago need a wife and some friends in crossed the street right here at l._a. Lie there's a taco truck and you know about three in the morning and we got some tacos and i was like hey was lettuce is she. She legalized. She wanted to send me to hell. Go to john what you deserved it. At that moment. You actually did deserve it asking about that was three a m that mike was bowled right. They're saying yeah. Let the more pissed because there was three a._m. More plays a little tipsy. You look you look at that website. I'm sorry like that is that is not tacos. It goes catch up is also why zealous love gauge dhaka stock. Yes marcella sell it. Marcellus my swear by taco john marcellus goes there and worries that it's a little too authentic personas a little concerned about the <hes> the the best minds unbelievable still holding the cord this this is the place that's gonna come after lebron the place. That's eventually going to come after it takes a lot of nervous get you. There reminds me of a couple of months ago. I ended up doing a youtube rabbit hole of remember when bruce willis used to do though seagram's golden wine cooler commercials no or you guys don't remember this just go to youtube type in bruce willis wine cooler and there was this period in the mid to late eighties were bruce willis. Ellis was their pitch man. He did these whole there. Unintentionally hilarious commercials were like he's on a porch singing <hes> using the wine in cool like a mike. There's another one where he's in a bar picking up a then unknown sharon stone <hes> <hes> at a bar using a single seagram's golden wine cooler. The catchphrase was the slogan was there wet and the dry right there. This is a rabbit hole worth investigating soccer weekly coming up next donald show e._s._p._n. L._a.

Munch Madness: Qdoba vs. Del Taco with Matt Apodaca

"This is a head gum podcast. Nineteen sixty four in the Mojave desert town of your California at hackbarth opens a Mexican fast food eatery called CASA del taco hackbarth. The former underling of Taco Bell, founder Glen bell scores. An immediate hit with his nineteen thousand tacos and twenty four cent burgers quickly expanding. The nearby barstool the midpoint between L A in Vegas on interstate fifteen it's high visibility bar sto outlets grow the business to its current prevalence. If not outright dominance in the western United States and in the process hackbarth drops word CASA from the name to create its current nonsensical brand nine hundred ninety nine a copyright dispute. Forces Denver founded fast, casual Mexican outlet Zuma to change its name. The company taps agency.

I was thinking because I had a friend who in elementary school who had chocolate flavored toothpaste, which was disgusting. And it was like like a gimmick. Like, you don't want to eat your tooth. Pinot. I agree. It's nasty. It's disgusting. So you got a molar you gotta get your that Moeller filled in. That's I'm sorry to hear that mobile toothpaste. Not too bad. Yeah.

It's like delayed US CIA because erosion in my gums, and we've actually figured it out. It's from those out towards I always have. I'm a big I'm a big mint, man. I'm always I'm always popping these Alto a habit. I started years ago. I thought it was pretty healthy. Now, I can't even do that. He says it can't use the any anymore. Man Prescott smelling. I know with our diet. Do you know when I was in high school kid? Started to get stomach problems because he ate Alto. It's too much during the day. Wow. Fucked up his stomach. Yeah. That's that's a that can be an issue 'cause you're just getting so much sugar. And I mean, they are loaded with sugar and another kid he he swallowed a mental. And then swallow DIKO can explode. This kid. Yeah. Mitch are guesses writer performer from UC in the podcast, candy dinner. And what's what these homeys talking about? Weezer mad abadaka as here. Matt. Hi, guys. Sorry. I did before I was at your dues. There is you know, it was right there with me up with little little little Bunce for Matt. You're now on the Doboy black. List? I think last time I was here for the double. So I didn't I don't think we had a drop or Heidi host sprint Hidehiko was very exciting. And also watching Nick, do the very energetic intro to the March madness tournament of champions was the only thing I can explain it like if you're walking through like to go visit Hannibal Lecter. It was what one of the other prisoners would be doing. Straight jacket like carving Ottawa rather about a chain restaurant. Man, all those other. That's like such great detail. All those other little little crazy for you get to handle about movies about those guys, but they're there too. Yeah. L there. That's that's manhunter. Do you ever see the Michelman mail when it heard it so good? Oh, I love it. Yeah. I really I really enjoyed it. But that that's it's like a it's in the Hannibal verse in you, and you in the you meet they they did it as ragged red dragon rat Ratner one rattener saw the Ratner. One one's not good. But it's mostly is the same story. Little bit different the Radnor ones. Okay. I saw in the sod in the theater. It's you know, it's okay. Because the cast is good. Yeah. But it's just it's also like it's it's Brett Ratner, you know. He was directed the movie Jack awful, holding shrimp. Cocktail resent. Let's do have been doing fucking Renner. Do rush hour aided the rush hours. Yeah. Those are the restaurants are has made good movies hit say he's he's made the formula work for couples their new Russia. He must not be directing the new. I don't know. I don't know if he's involved at all. So just to be clear you stand with Renner. Okay. The man hunter has a very eighties vibe to it. So it like it it feels very of the time. But I had I told someone to watch it, and they didn't Joe maybe it was Paul rust and Leslie his wife, maybe maybe they didn't. But I loved it. But it is a very like eighty s there's a very eighties my job and makes it creepy or you should check it out. But it's like, do you know who play? It's who plays a brand Cox. It's brian. Yeah. Brian Cox plays Hannibal, great actor, and that's any I've seen of the lambs and no other ones. But for some reason, no everything about. Silence of the lambs rules. That's just that's like one of my favorite movies. Good. God. I want to watch it again middle watch it again in this for. What on silence of the lambs? We're back after this break. Welcome back to double as we just watched the entirety of silence of the lambs turned. It was awkward watching a movie while Nick had an erection. You kept cheering on buffalo. Bill. Did the dance when he did look I've learned it. Kind of a lip sync battle sort of thing. Like thirty thirty seconds before that scene came up. You you yell to everyone tuck time, boy, we didn't know what you were talking about met. You are you have a podcast about weezer your weezer enthusiast aband-. I'm not super familiar with Mitch, you know, a little bit of weezer. I really liked weezer when I was in middle school. I got the blue album. Yeah. Middle school, baby. Getting my first kiss. Listen weezer, dating a girl. I never kissed ever. Practicing on your closed fist the Kelly wheel. And what a bad choice you made. That's that's my first girlfriend Nick Kelly wheel. Oh, boy shouted to Kelly. Yeah. She's probably listening to the podcast probably heard this you probably like, hey, please don't ever mention my name she's living. She's listening to this being like why? Get away. I think she's not in L, A rain. That's the dream. But yeah, but you were saying you were you were into this. The most goes in there. I was I was I was big. I was big. I really liked that was like that rocketed up to like, my my favorite band. And then I remember I got to high school in my my God. My parents always comes over for Christmas. Yes. And my Godfather's Sarah was like a like, hey, listen to that anymore. No. And she's like, yeah. Sure. I gave it a gave it up. But I, but I'm Sam because I do I actually do like that. I never I try to listen to some of the other albums never actually got into. I think that that's the most accessible album. They have I think so. I think so I think if I were to try to convert somebody who hadn't heard weezer before I would give them the blue album because I think top to bottom. It is perfect. I was three when it came out if anyone homeless. I am. As such as a man of a younger generation, how did you get into this? And my mom is young. And so she would play that out. She was like peak age for that album. I think it she was like twenty when that album came out. She was twenty four. Okay. Twenty four. And so she would play it a lot. And my aged your mom than you. I think so no. No, my mom just turned fifty. And you're okay. So yes. Thirty eight. Yeah. I guess I'm twenty eight. So it's about right in the middle right in the middle. Okay. We should do a progression photo. We'd be like who are those losers in that cool woman. She was young. She would play that album a lot. I think I just inherited a lot of her music taste as grew up in just didn't stop. I've seen them. Probably. I've seen them over ten times probably similar to you with Dave Matthews band. Try to see them anytime there in LA, or at least close to it. But they're they're my boys. And I know they've made some really questionable music choices as of late. But it seems like they're having a lot of fun. I'm on a little text read, and we discussed what was better new Dave Matthews or new weezer interest. And I made a playlist. I believe my Carlson made a playlist of Spotify. And we are songs and then with the new album, it was Finally I think everyone gave in was like new day, man. Schooler? I think day Matthews one out there. Both maybe probably both pretty embarrassing. But I don't know. I mean, like weezer is more. I think I think the Africa cover some of that stuff is a little too that. I think that's their biggest single ever. Ever of TOTO song? That's very insane. That is that is because you wait hold on. I I want to compare because you're saying that something off of the new Dave Matthews is better than something. The knew he was gonna pick randomly. What's the new? We I guess I guess nominated new weezer song. I mean, are you are you had to dominate the worst one off the off the worst on the new album? I think is called living in LA. Okay. Weezer living in LA. Okay. Let's play a little bit of living in LA. We'll get a sense. This is going to be good. I'll pick the worst one to. That's. Oh back on a little bit of living in was laughing immediately. Nick, you are you're looking you're like this. You looked confused. I had go is bad weezer. Like, if we did do Chicago with you. I did I did living in LA. I picked living in a way. But it clicked on what I had open which was what I used for this in the Chicago show. I did I did a did everybody. Does anybody know really really know what time it is spoiler for upcoming show. You listen to music so infrequently that it was still the was still the last thing. This thing that we played at our live show three weeks ago. All right here, we go. Here's a little living in LA. It's not playing. This. It's like a mmediately bad. It's like a maroon five signs. I'm sorry. I'm doing this too. Everyone here. Emma use. I'm sorry. That's pretty rough. Mitch what's your nominee from their new album? This is because also capo joy begin could play that one. That is because I was thinking was like she or that girl is you but a samurai cop is you might as well play Sam Reich. I'll play a little Samarai cop Ocho begin the parenthetical. This is better. At least this is an instrument that I understand what it is. That's true. Wow. It's been settled. I mean, I don't even Ari rivers Cuomo. Barry rivers, you gotta go answer to Dave. And he's he's he'll somewhere. Dave Matthews gets a lot of whatever I can't get into this. I can't do there's a lot of back between both bands. Actually, there's a lot of unfair. Call it bullying bullying. Worst bullying that takes place online river. It's about these two straight white men. Why does Dave Matthews himself? Get so much. I'm confused. But like I feel like I'd never hear rivers getting as much as Dave because rivers is very clearly Deeb and Dave acts like he's not. I think the I think people the music Dave Matthews band is like a punching bag and so as as the front man as the guy who named the band after himself. Dave Matthews naturally gonna be the lightning rod there. It's the same reason. Chad Chad Kroeger the bans not named after him. But Chad Kroeger gets all that hate from Nickelback. Detractors, the rest of the band is just as at fault, right? That doesn't track though. Chad crow, it's not Kroger back it's nickel. But that's what I can see that after him frontman. He's the most visible part is the guy who was married Averell Wien. Maybe still is God, I hope so I hope they're still together for the sanctity of marriage. Some marriage work in this crazy world, we we Kelly Whalen, and I forgot sites. Something please Wayland get back with Mitch happily married with children. I believe may leave that other fan started new one with Mitch I have cats. You like litter in your bed man that is a real problem. I have cats too. Just like no matter what they always litter in your bed. Maybe there is a solution to not be gross. I guess, but they track litter this this is a real issue. They track cat struck litter. Fucking everywhere. It's it's annoying. I got I got a room. I think I'm going to get a second roomba. Nick. I think that's my Zaka roomba doing that. Well. We had a new patriots. Bitches room. Wait. So like, it's there's that much litter around and cat, dander and hair, and such they get a lot of just make a lot litterbox is in your bed. Right there. A little boxes the bottom. I've had it installed at the bottom of my bed. So Puppa has to go down. Chamber pot. What's the cat situation at your home? So there weren't as of recently there are three there were for my roommate has two cats. I have two cats what we recently had to put down one of my room. All she was in a ghost, basically, the whole time. She was very sweet very low. Right. But she was just bones and looked like she wished for death every day. Like, it was how old was she? She was nineteen Mary use up their age. Yeah. She was like, I mean, I mean, I won't get into all her problems. But she was just like peeing everywhere and stuff like I don't know where to go anymore. But she was she was really sweet her name is beauty. And she was a real real treat, all ripe beauty. Yeah. Listen be. That's zip two cats in BUSTER zip till twenty two. Wow. And BUSTER was almost twenty. She was she was she was up their age. My guys are like eleven and fifteen they're they're getting up there who your guys what the names their names Hurley and Sawyer like from law. Wow. Yeah. But you know, what you can. See fifteen year old cat, and they can seem completely fine. Yeah. Yes. Sawyer is my terrible. Yeah. He's just like he's mad at me. All the time. He thinks I suck. And he's right. Walling guy. So. I my room floor. It's not hard to get litter out of the bed. He's always saying. You are right. We probably should never admit at these things. Anyone else's my bet. I'll just tell them. It's food crumbs. Eating sand weird. Why not you'll say they'll say, oh, yeah. Eat it. And you'll go, okay. I try to get into Pinkerton, by the way is that the green album Pinkerton is their second on the green completely separate like they have six monochromatic releases at this point subtitled, but being trying to get into pitcher didn't it didn't work. Yeah. That was like the sentiment. I guess for the time it was nineteen Ninety-six. So I was of course, only but five years old. I'll say it is often as I can. But it was like at the time. It was not received well critically or correct? And now it's like one of the album's people say like made the nineties, but I think it's quite good. Some of the lyrics have not aged. Well, because it is very like why doesn't this girl? Like means. Like, okay. Well, that's how you in that twenty four like twenty four thirty now he's fifty now and still calling women girls. Not green. But I have a podcast all about how much I I love them. And I spend a lot of time being like he's weird. But it's cool is the so are you breaking down because you know, we we ran out of things to talk about pretty quickly on Doboy. You we have all of chain restaurants to discuss like are you breaking down individual songs going by you just talking about letting your guests to drive run the zoo is like it's Adam by so right now they have fourteen and there's like I've already recorded like a good chunk of them. But I'm only doing the fourteen now. Oh, wow. Yeah. I'm only doing that. Because I can't commit to doing a full-on like discussion by there's always so much to say about right? I think one particular topic. I'm not gonna go through again, you know. Yeah. But there there's also like some site things that I'm going to talk about in like, I'm going have like a couple of musicians on talk about like their influence and stuff. So I think they're small little things like that's talked about. But I'm not gonna do. I probably won't do more than. Twentieth. Right. Yeah. Nick, who's what was your first June? Remember, I think I'm trying to remember the first music, I got, and I think that it was either a cassette. It's now on all cassette of snows informer, very cool. Equal, you know, semi Soma down the lane them. Wwco massage someone down the lay down next is rolled back. Or it might have been due the Diddy Haber boy by paper do the paper. Boy. Right. It might have been it might have been who who are the two criss cross. Now, they were they were. I think I don't even know if I got them or my sister had them. Now, do you do you mean like a thing you got that wasn't like me asking for music Christmas Christmas morning. I think I got snows informer and do the Diddy by paper. Boy, this is the first cool. These are the I I know I was like in fifth fourth or fifth grade. I'm sure that was back when you get like an at like you'd buy at whole album for one song as there wasn't a way to buy you could buy an individual single. But it was like five bucks in the hostel were cassette single. Yes. They were they were they were both cassettes, the Enin get and then also sorry. Is it get a grip Arrowsmith? Oh, yeah. Get on the cover. Yeah. They had one that was one that was called pump in a bunch of lascivious titles.

But that was a that was when I was a child you played that on a gramophone. I'd and drinking. I know I had a I think I get like I think I got like three tapes also tapes, and I got I remember midnight oil was one of them. I got how could we sleep with our beds are burning that that? Yeah. And then I got I got Janet Jackson rhythm nation. Wow. And then I got what was the other one? I want to say it was a it was a rapper named Candyman. But I can't remember what single was. Yeah. Terrify covered with bees say it again. We'll give up Candyman. Man rapper and before that it was probably for you like internet. Dial up sounds. Listen to doomsday whistles. Okay. Let's see hit single Knockin boots way. And now, we gotta find knocking boots Candyman because I'm sure that's why I bought it. For candy man's Knockin boots came out and looks like nine hundred ninety nineteen eighty-seven rather Candyman Knockin boots here. Well, this this this Jackson. I'm fine. I don't want the playlist the single Jew ago. All right. The album ain't no shame in my game. I remember this now. The Gandhi man is on the prime though. This does not check out for you got to speak up. Oh, yeah. Yeah. This is great. Is this the most music you've ever heard? These little snippets of some. I play video games. News is in the background, turn it off to distract you. Get a grip came out in one thousand ninety three so April nineteen Ninety-three. So I was about probably the fourth grade, maybe and then. I got the cassette of that. Which had like, I think like for on even on the cassette. There was a Larry and eat the rich. I remember the first after the interim, and we play the cassette in my car, and my parents home, I like, we're like, what is our son. What does he get into the Aerosmith is a bunch of Bernie Bros. Arrowsmith is ours with his Elaine band as well barris? 'cause I was that like starting to be my, but you know, what Pink Floyd even when I was like in elementary school to middle school is like a band that? I've liked my entire life. I didn't get into them until I was older. My brother lake got me. Let me borrow dark side of the moon knows. Like, oh, this is cool. This is like psychedelic like I thought it, but I was like teenager that point. God you liked anything psychedelic? Yeah. I like that sort of stuff like that trippy source stuff. I just can't picture tripped out while you're listening to dark side of the moon is room open your eyes. It is. I picture you sitting cross legged on the ground. Besides right behind. With zero THC in your. No, I I like to I'm remembering another Cassetta had very early on. My brother had deathl- deathly birds hysteria, which was a had had some of their biggest singles on it. And I wanted also wanted a death leopard album because I thought like well, my brother gets when I want one too. So I got deaf leopards pyro mania, which did not have the hit singles on it. So it's kind of like at least for me kind of forgettable album. But it just like to look at it. Pyromaniac fire was in the fire was Beavis was going nuts with fire. He was losing his mind over fire fire starter by prodigy. Right. Fire was fire was lit. Oh boy. Fire was lit back in the nineties. Matt you're you're from not just from southern California. But you hail part in part from my hometown of Lakewood, California. Yes, I wanted to talk about well, you talk it. We how much we talk about Quincy on ear not enough. Some equal time for Lakewood at least a little bit. For everyone listening at home bitch is wearing patriots hat and a Boston sweatshirt. Celtics hoodie. Yeah. No, go ahead. Talk about like what I'm just going to go in the other room and take a nap. Stay in here. Might learn something I'm a Lakewood. Yeah. Likewise was a fine to it's a fine place. It's fine. It's going on. Really? It's it's the most interesting attributes is beyond it being the first plan community in the country is kind of the progenitor of tract homes for better or worse that it's right next to Long Beach, which is far more interesting vibrant city. But what was the Lakewood we, touch and there's a little bit when you were here on double. But Doug a little bit about your eating habits growing up in Lakewood, your favorite chains. Yeah. And and specifically I wanna talk about a Mexican food a little bit. But let's let's start with let's start with your favorite food and food from your hometown. Well, so like, I I love islands. And so you're saying in Long Beach. There's the Long Beach town centres. Yes, stone's throw away from where my family with which again, I'm old enough to. Remember when that was built that you'd be nothing. Yeah. Is it just postwar? Yeah. You were there when it was the field where mardi MC fly credit. But it was like I go there a lot. There's a lot of good restaurants there, obviously in and out before we go pass island because I love islands so much I in the rewards club. I get points. They go there for Mahalo Mondays when you get double points. The it's not Mahalo Mondays anymore. They change it to. I think it was what the fuck was. It was something Wednesdays for while. And now they've just got like triple points weeks can really cash into become their points program with their happy hours. You can really make out like a bandit. But. But what is your what is your? What's your favorite thing from Ireland? Well, if I'm feeling frisky. I'm gonna get that that pipeline with on. Oh, yeah. Really good. And also some of that Chile falls off the burger dip in a frying. Danny no problem at all no way. It's getting it's going to get you don't you worry about. Some of it fell on the table table. Suck right off. I like the I think it's is it just called the Hawaiian burger. I think it has pineapple and teriyaki sauce. I think that's the way. I think that's the hula burger. That's like such rock-solid. Right. Where you go. Right. I think that's so good. But I like that. And in recent years, they've expanded their menu to not just have. I think what they used to boast was fined burgers and cold drink rate. And now they have like tacos. And like, I don't know if they have like, I don't think they have like chicken tenders, but they have own their sandwiches tortilla soup. They're pretty good. Yeah. Good. Yeah. I want to add a new tier to table freak floor fanatic. Boy, you got a piece of you got fell on the floor.

What else was weird about Lakewood? They have seen this Matt they have an eatery in Lakewood called humble brand. Yeah. I saw this. That's insane. It's insane. It's fucked up. Thanks. Like something that that Harris whittles invented and they named their restaurant. And it has it's been open for years. It's been open for like five years. So sue them on behalf of the wiggles estate. Yeah. Probably. Yeah. Sandwich. It's called humble brags brags. That's so weird. It's ver-. It's very odd. Because also too it's like, it's such an internet. He sort of phrase that I feel like people in general, the general public isn't going to be aware the average Lakewood citizen is going to know what a humble brag is a stepdad. Dave has no idea. What? He didn't see them tweeting restaurants, so busy because we have to take all this money being like, oh, I see what they're doing. He doesn't understand. I wonder if I should tell the story. I'll I'll tell I won't tell the person who's involved with. We mean, another person everyone will know who it is have the password to Harris's humble brag account and that his was a year after pass away. We were gonna re tweet people who had tweeted out about him passing. We didn't do outs the accounts been corrupted and people. I think it's gone now. Yeah. Like for it's a bummer because that was that was a great, you know, it was a very great idea gotten the guys it became vocabulary word, and it was just like such a great chronicling of people, you know, very bragging in a very specific way. You don't not everybody gets to create a world nominal observation that became like a touchstone. We all know that it, right? Really crazy. Yeah. It was it was it was good to call. It was. He was great a grand. Harris. Yeah, he'd beauty the cat some. But hey, you know, put beauty the cat in the same category. Jose where should we memorializing fucking zip? In the BUSTER. I mention them. Zip AP BUSTER, and John Adams and John Quincy and John Quincy Adams, John Adams, John Hancock and the guy who dropped the bomb on Nagasaki. Most of most of all when you visit Quincy, maybe it will be this year. I'll take you down into the tomb the atoms tomb was very cool Lido. I'll be quite content. Don't you have to walk to? Got like my players put him down at the top affect. They were gonna say there's going to be a Libya's soprano style. Escalator over down at a chair. So Nick down there don't smoke John Quincy Adams bones, an attempt to become smarter. Is that how high is that? Excape they go to a graveyard. He's not buried in the graveyard, and they dig up John they chose. I mean, it's really funny. They chose funny. It is funny, and he smokes John Quincy Adams and then at the end like they don't they bring back. I forget what how exactly it happens. Ben Franklin's ghost appears when they smoke bomb or something. I think so. Yeah. Yeah. Great. I mean frail bots on the theater together. It's got jokes level movie would joke. I think I've said this before it was either this or Jason X that me and frail bought went and watched. And then everyone else went and saw what's what's Anderson's? The Royal Tenenbaums. Gives me the right choice. So let's talk Mexican food a little bit. Because it's been a topic. I wanna talk generally like, how do you? What's your what are your feelings on on Mexican food? And specifically I want to drill down where you stand on the taco versus burrito conundrum. Okay. So this is something I have gone back and forth with quite a bit. Well, my Mexican food thing in general is that like the, you know, the more like hole in the wall e place is always going to be better for sure chain, or whatever we had this place. I did spend a Geordie my life in Lakewood. But I grew up like as a little boy in Downey. And we were we would go to this place called L taco just had a couple of locations. And it was it was really really good. You can get like any anything on that menu is perfect. They made it fresh like just there. And it's like it's like a family that makes this. Yeah. And I find that my what I think is always good in Mexican food is when they do the simple. Things like really really well. So I always judge a Mexican food place by like, if they're rice and beans are good before go to like, the main courses because if that's good the rest of it slaps for sure. But like if that's bad. I'm not going to be super stoked by get something like six like cheese and chill out or something. That's not going to be like to like crazy or you'll ask for a side of rice and beans. Go to your table eat it, and then come back and back that kitchen and be like let me see those being. That guy you call these beams. No, it's always just like, I guess trial. Like like, my first time a place. It'll be let's see what this is all I need is a single being Nick. And then I can judge it just one cut it into then little slice in share it. Yeah. I think. Yeah. The simpler thing like, the the more the more intricate items are gonna be good. If they knock out the easy stuff. I I would go to L taco ally. We would go we were at taco. We were Taco Bell house. But also love I love to del taco growing up. We loved what what is name of. Oh, supermax we used. So. Yes, Mexico's great. This is a Long Beach specific chain. Yeah. Supermax is really good. I loved I think I talked about it on the double thing was called yet. Holy moly was very great also sort of like right at area specific, but other than that like I hit up a lot of the chains. Like, we didn't do like El Torito because like my family's Mexican. So and my mom my mom's Puerto Rican. But she learned how to make like Mexican food. Really good. So we just Steph. All that stuff. And so it was also one of those things where it's like, well, there was a place. I don't know exactly where it is. But it's it's called. What is it's the name of. I can't even I had it in lost it, but it was his place that was very crews. It was called Veracruz. It would go there all the time as a kid, and I would always I was a picky boy. So when I was like four or five years old, I always ask for a hamburger, and they would just make a hamburger with the ground taco meat, and it was really really good. But they kind of sloppy Joe ish. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. And I I as I got older I started to appreciate the Mexican food more. But right. Spots. We would be I used to love. I in in the taco burrito debate. I used to be big on burritos used to really really breed. Right. But I think I think I'm a taco boy. Wow. It's disappointing. Burritos rule us do raw saying, they're both great. I like tacos more. But they're both great. I just eat tacos more. But yeah, I think I can sometimes a burrito. We'll just take me out. Like, I was like, oh, well that I ruined my day so full, but like I could eat like a good amount of tacos and be like, okay. That was that was a regular sized meal. Oh, I went to fish tacos. The other day that place on hillhurst is incredible. I don't know if you've been there before. But it's it's the best fish tacos. They right. The hubris of that name and yet they live up to it. Yeah. Yeah. It's it's if you haven't been I think, it's it's probably the best. I mean, it is the best fish tacos in Los Angeles. I think quite good. The real good a lot of people make arguments Ricky's, I haven't been to Ricky's. I gotta go to Ricky's. I haven't advocates either. I've had I've had best fish tacos for got over decade. But needing those things and they're good. They're really good. They Nick they do live up to their name. Hey, no week ago on Thursday. I went within the week. I thinking thinking we should follow best fish tacos lead and renamed. Oh, boys. Best worst pot. We'll take a break right back with more show. Welcome back to Doboy your with Matt what ACA we are talking much madness 2019 mouth of the border. Here are the rules are competitors. Del taco, Cuba, tacos and Britos only sides stay on the sidelines. Drink the Gatorade jug, also on the sidelines. One taco in one burrito from each chain and eaters choice, go crunchier, soft streamlined or loaded. Whatever protein you want that is up to your individual discretion del taco, we I reviewed actually we only reviewed the one time with Alan Yang on the podcast a member of the golden play club. That's right. Very well. And received a first date Yang back. We're getting Yang back. Love yang. Hashtag gang gang. Yeah. Yeah. Why not everyone every match you want to add to your your gang on here to assure Matt squad who oppa DACA, that's too long. Matt. Pitch one. Yeah. Along the lines of hashtag floor. Fuck. Hashtag met fun. If you're a Matt fuck throw me, a hashtag. And I'll I'll like it say hell, yeah. Reply to hell. Yeah. For every hashtag Matt fuck shit. You better get ready to reply quite a bit a rabbit that his thumbs caught on fire. Cuba. We've not reviewed on the podcast, but in defeated greenborough red burrito in the opening round and has progressed to where it is today. Matt you have not had Q because Mitch and I had never had Cuba. You'd never had it. Right. I don't know if I had or not I don't think that I have we I was I was a Neo fight to it. You've maybe it had it once before you'd never had it before this record never had. This was my second time ever having it like what was your what were your feelings about Cuba going in? And what was your general impression without giving anything away? Well, I mean, my first thoughts were what even is this place? I truly had no frame of reference for it. I looked up the menu online. I was like, oh, this looks like. It looks like a sort of grittier potent a little bit. Like, it looks like they are doing sort of a similar thing. But it looks not fucked up. Ray it looks like they want it to be like cool. It does does have a little bit. Just do it. Yeah. So I I mean. Yeah. Going in through didn't even have a. Flavor in my new it was going to be Mexican food. So I knew that. But I didn't know how it was gonna taste or what was going on. Then you know, what I think I was. I was surprised and you mentioned that you were a Taco Bell family growing up were del taco family. Mitch obviously Taco Bell family on a second. Yes. We were really a Taco Bell fan. Okay. I miss you become a taco. But I am. Hi, Emma, Taco Bell family myself. Family of one. I guess if we did get tacos like fast food goes. I guess like the couple times we did. It was probably right. Then as I got older. I I got it on my own, of course in high school and stuff, but we went to just the two. There was just a couple local Mexican restaurants. Elsa rap. As was the that was my family restaurant. That's where we went. And I was a as a boy, I was afraid to eat anything at it. As about Mexican cuisine seemed foreign to me as a as a scared little white. Boy, I'm many ways, I still am. And Mitch you're not little. But but. But now, I mean, the Mexican food is my I told you this. It's my second second favorite African Italian. Still still has that spot a sucker for good Italian in good red sauce. And so on what can I see a baby? It's a it's a it's an east coast thing. You know what I mean? No, I Gotcha. Great Mexican is probably my favorite food. But I so good gracious. My my number went to towns up there for me. I just went to LA Pergola last night time. And that was insane. That's awesome. What's love her? Let I haven't been there in the same little strip mall that the drying room is overrun. Okay. I spent a lot of time on hillhurst for folks. It's a great food street in Los Angeles. But it's a yeah. Like all all the pasta. There's handmade. Oh, wow. Yeah. In house, it's you should go. Maybe we should go sometime after a record get a nice meal. Spend some extra time to. Talk at each other for five hours when the mice. Oh. I'll tell you. What happens? We look at our phones feet away from each other, particularly look at your phone. Yeah. You look at your phone to we have some nice guy. That I take his pot. I wave at you. When you just look at your phone. You something else? But yeah, you Taco Bell was your allegiance. But you got you did like Dell talk we would get because it was my mom in like my three brothers. And so we would get the del taco fiesta packs. Well, yeah. Which was other which was crunchy tacos and beating cheese burrito for great. You know, it's like ten bucks or something and those are two of their I think they're better menu item. Do they're either budget stuff very very well there. Well, let's let's get into it. Just like I just feel like some of like a like an item on the del taco. We're talk. Oh bellman. It just feels like this. This review may be loaded. Nick. It seems like we've got to del taco guys in here. I'm not gonna he said he would like Taco Bell more. He said he went to. All right. I'm but I'm saying. I didn't know I didn't know anything about Matt's position on Taco Bell versus del taco before. I got him. And he's a ringer. I'm not like you. I'm not trying to book ringers in year one. When you brought John gambling and knowing you didn't like in and out burgers. So he could kick in and out burger out of the turnament. As one of our best episode Burling was great. Oh, you think gambling was a bad? Guess. No. I think it really was a great guest. I think for that. I think you booked him specifically for the purpose of knocking in and out burger out of the terminal. So we had to figure out how to get back in if Mitch that that that ringer episode was good. Maybe maybe this is going to be a classic to maybe it'd be like oh man gambling same sort of tier? Guess we're going to play a Belushi. So let's start with let's start with Cuba because we've covered Cuba before. And then we'll get into del taco. I got the I went to Cuba today. I went for an early lunch. And I got a the the taco got was called the mad rancher. So here's the thing. They have their tacos there, which are all prefab, but they don't have any prefab rita's the Britos or make your own like japodlay. So for me, it's a little disorienting where God I just feel like I would like to have wandering around the restaurant. Help me. I was looking at the menu. I was studying the menu looking for a prefab Brita because they have one that's ready to go. I wanna pick that one. I don't wanna have too much customization to deal with. But I got the mad rancher taco, which is a little chicken guacamole picante ranch lettuce PICO to guy. Oh, cotija cheese suicide of that for memory. Is that the talker? You got it's not. But the menu in front front of me naked. It's got a heat level ranking of one lightning bolt. Yeah. I will say that. It didn't have the lightning bolt. Really did not. I I have some problems with our lightning bolt scale. This was this one on what is your issue? I think they're just tells you it's not spicy. It's one lightning bolt. It doesn't even lightning doesn't even denote heat though. Yeah. That's oh. Yeah. That's not what I was thinking. But that's a great point. Guess what you ever been? Have you ever been ear lightening strike, Nick fire? A fire will happen fine. Things will catch fire from lightning. I think it's kind of an aid to see. But fine. I will say that this this one is my issue with it is that I think even their thing the thing that I had that was raided four hundred dollars. I think was just not that spicy. But that's a common chain problem of the ranch. I actually liked quite a bit here. I was like what is this ranch doing on this taco, but it actually worked really well is one of the nicer elements the girl chicken was good quality, the bacon was Stuttle. I feel like if you're gonna have bacon on a taco. I kind of expected to be more of a presence. But it was kind of overwhelmed by Guangdong Molay. And I don't want get overwhelming at all. No. Yeah. I thought it was. But it was like it was just kind of like a hint of smokiness. You know what? I mean, it kind of sounds like fucking knocked it out of the park. It worked it worked decently. Well, I will say that. But I think a lot of people might see bacon on their expected to be a little bit bake in the urine. And it's not really. Yeah. The dominant flavor there is really the chicken the guac and the ranch again the ranch works. Well, that this was a well done taco the the burrito got. So again, you have to roll your own. I got the ground beef burrito. Bowl your own to roll your own. You're not. Roll up the fucking burrito self roll it. But you have to decide what attributes this Britos going to have. Okay. We'll roll your own sounds and say my own chicken when I went there. You have to roll your own in the in the DD sense. Like, you're rolling care. So cool. Thank you mad at is cool. You're right ground. Beef breed. Oh, I got it with the wheat tortilla, which I liked that they have that. I like tortillas Brown rice Pinto beans case ODI blow three lightning bolts, not spicy regular cheese salsa Verde two lightning bolts, not spicy onions and salon try through on their a good burrito. The there are so many components in here. I was really worried about the structural integrity. This thing the worker did a great job. She she didn't awesome job, assembling it and keeping it intact. There was like a little tiny tear. But it didn't even it was totally fine. This this thing was dynamite. This was good. I just don't like I don't like the ground beef that much and I'm not sure about the ground beef. I got before. I I I told you that was not the best. Yeah. I didn't. I didn't get an intentionally for that reason. But I don't think the ground beef was I think we we can wear that in your evaluation of the place. I think the ground beef was was not the best. But I think the other components were. This was all right and the chips and salsa say I don't love their chips Avenir so-so again, four thunderbolts not very spicy. But it's a decent salsa. It's it's just a little hint of sweetness, which kind of like, what was your what did you guys get with Matt let's start with you. Okay. So for my taco, I got the drunken yard bird, which is grilled chicken guacamole, salsa Verde, salon tro, minced onions and cotija cheese. And I tried for for my order. I tried to do as simple as I could. And as one to one as possible. So this was this was a pretty simple sort of street taco that you would get right. So I I kind of agree with the the one tortilla for the taco. I don't I don't know about that reinforcement nonsense ESTES. Really does his problem with AAA two? 'cause I mean one I mean, I can see how to corn tortillas might be too starchy or something I I can understand that on a sort of mouth feel race back. But if that tacos loaded up with that good good. Who cares? Right. Right. And then, you know, I the the chicken I thought was very tasty that it was very very flavorful in general, and that the salsa Verde that they put on the taco was good. They did not my did post this. My post did not give me any like sites. Also. Well, it was spicy enough. And it wasn't it wasn't crazier. Anything that wasn't my face turn red. And it wasn't. Yeah. Get my head and a pool of water. I will say they are a little stingy with the sides. When I when I asked for one there. They were like they were like, oh, we'll give you one. Okay. This sounds like a this is fake. Okay. This is my first move on. We'll give you this is my first day. You think he's pulling Jacob wolf? For cuba. This is this is not going to say fake news. But this is some fake wider bullshit, right? So fake Jews. It is. It's fake Jews. Not fake choose. It's true. Okay. We'll give you know one. Who are these bullies that you don't I was there? It happened to me. My uncle was there with me. He works at Nintendo says while Luigi is going to be in the new smash brothers. Through. It's a lie. You're lying. You're you heard these like to sort of liberal hipsters? They're saying I wish we can get more as much as we wanted. But under the new rules. It's okay. And then a woman with her child was there and the child up to you and said why is there evil in the world? This. This is all bullshit. People. Why are people lying all the time? You're a liar. I'm not lying. I'm telling you, it was it was a friendly interaction, but they ask for another salsa, and I got only one salsa when to say to you. You get one. They did say that this maybe it was like you can have one sure here's one. I think that's what happened. They ask for an extra one and they were stingy about it. This is say what happened saying I'm guessing they had a corporate policy that they're not supposed to give away too many salt too, many extra salt in what? Well, I'll go and talk to this guy. I want you to go. We will get to the bottom. Okay. We'll after this record. We're going to drive down now. We'll do this on it will count as a record day. You both get to the door and start to cry. In both orders instead fake twos. It's true. It happened. My something a problem. They did have with the taco though. I thought it was tasty. Those very good, but the whole thing to wet that was pretty sloppy. That could be a byproduct of being post me fairness. So it had like maybe like heat condensation within the foil, which I will say was very nicely packed as well. But I thought overall it was a very it was very tasty talk right for my burrito. I did a I did a bean-and-cheese burrito. I went with Brita the vegetarian burrito. I eat meat. But I went being cheese. Thought that's more. That's more playing right? I wanted to do it sort of more plain representation. So that was flour tortilla. No took the rice out to do one to one with the del taco burrito and had black Pinto beans, I gotta say this is an insane order. Yeah. I agree. So I was eating I kind of wanted to replicate the head. I had ordered del taco. I and I got what I would get rang. And so to match the del taco order, I sort of had to do it like a freak write hashtag Matt foot because this this is why GRA gotta beat and cheese burrito at two potent. Yeah, I got it at Joe to for first round this. You just don't do that. All my first rounders were being cheese. It's like a good being Jesus. Thanks. This just isn't the place to do a bean and cheese burrito. Can execute it. Well, I think it's in there. Yeah. That that's sort of my whole thing is like if they could do this great. I'm sure the rest of it. They, you know, add some more ingredients. Let's see how this breed. Oh, hold itself. Together. You know, I will say for being a. So soft and chewy burrito. Oh, yeah. It was it did keep together. Very well. The beans. I prefer in like bean-and-cheese breed. I prefer the beans to be sort of like more like a refi fried mashed sort situations. These are hold being. Yes, they're very tasty. So I didn't mind, but there's something about the mouth feel of loose beans. Too much. It's a similar thing with japodlay, Dale, the they've got them whole beans and there. Some of those squishy bay mash them up. Yeah. Mash them up, but that's very good at that. The cheese is very good. I, you know, this tortilla talk about this tortilla second, I gotta get sheets made out of this thing. This is software. I love it. I was what I wanted to be the beans and cheese inside. I touched did widdly pet. This burrito to see how it fell. And I was like oh, man. This is this is good. Yeah. This is good. But I had eaten like I said before I got to my. To to my order. So I add brunches yesterday. But I only ate half the queue Dogo order heated up the rest of it today, which brings us to our next segment. The leftovers. Well played. Heated up, and it was really good today. It held up. I was it was as if I had eaten it yesterday is the season one of the leftovers. Just your ringtone. My mom was calling coincidence outside wing. It's on Spotify baby. But you know, what I will say it was a really good bean-and-cheese burrito. You had you had I known that the other meats and stuff were as good as they were. I would have sort of gone a little that way. But there's always next time met your thoughts. Your job experience. Nick verse will say Cuba's got I like anything that starts in Q catch my drift. Non. Give them a pass. Or whatever it is whoever Q and maybe on. Just a maybe it's just a computer program. Canoga quincy. Quinton tarantino? Okay. But I got myself to timer taco you guys are complaining about you know, all these tackles they should have to they should have. They should have there should be more than one tortilla. You could get that with the two timer at that time or my first time there. I don't care. I don't care you dead. It again, if you want, I know, I got it buyer got it. It's good. Oh, yes. For another fucking tortilla. Okay. I think it should just come with one by default software. Timer pulled pork. South aroha? Shredded cheese lettuce PICO to guy. Oh in cotija cheese. Crispy, taco wrapped in a flower to your tortillas spread with three cheese. Oh, plus double decker. It's a plus up double decker Nick took a bite into this thing. I thought delta goes and trouble. That's what they think. When I'm in the drive. I think when I'm in the bathroom. That goes. Nixon trouble. This time or was really good. Yeah. I got my post mated. It was hot and fresh even though it is far it's five miles away. I gave good tip, Nick. Fifteen dollars on your credit card. Have my credit card just for just for the tipping situation. And then. And I got a side of salsa Verde. I didn't really poor anything on your actually I just as as was. And it was there was no issue when I got my side of salsa, by the way, just one that didn't happen at all. Well, you didn't go in store. Your on post means they gladly gave me sides of salsa. Well, that guy probably had to deal he'd probably haggle with the the person we end the counter acute Oba you gotta listen to me. My ass is on the line, Mr. posts maze. Gonna shit can get this guy's extra salsa. It's the do Boyd. And Nick that Dhaka was walking tasty. It was a really really good as tasty tackle del taco in trouble. I got myself a grilled adobo chicken burrito. Adobo? Yeah. Cheese, salon tro, sour cream, Pinto beans, flour tortilla, salawah rice, PICO to guy. Oh, salsa Verde in three cheese caso in an aside of the of the Verde SaaS said, the Verde salsa, I got the case on there. Because last time we were there. I was told that the case it was getting the same thing. Neither I only got the case of last time in the context of that time or taco. Yeah. It was it was really it was a good burrito. And was it was really well done job there. I was trying to think of like I should get guac in there. But I felt like guac and caso and sour cream. That's too much of this too much going on at that point. So I I opted out of the guac. I also got myself a large diet coke. And I got myself some chips in case. Oh, a little bit of the chips in case the chips in case. There was no reason to do that. Besides the fact that it was just in her. And I I should've been the fire case. So I still yet to try it. It's not. That's my see. It's good though. But it was it was better than most of the burritos. I get to lay. They did a good job. Yeah. I liked the taco more than I liked the burrito. You had an impressive showing this tournament. It was it was good. It was good. Well, let's get to del taco. So here's what I got. I'm a I'm a del taco fan. I'm not gonna fly or any false flags here. I have a bias towards this chain. This is. But I decided I'm going to order things that I don't normally order because that's part of this exercise. So I got the epic case chicken burrito. This is fresh grilled chicken. Del taco was famous crinkle cut fries. They say in the menu description create case, oh, Blanco cheddar cheese and PICO guy. Oh in there. So it's got fries. In the Breda like, California style burrito. I thought this was quite nice that the fries have a really their Creole. Cut fries are really good. The texture works. Really? Well in the context of wrapped up tortilla their case. Oh is good. I like del taco case. So I think I think it's well done. I don't think they're chicken meat is all that stellar. And usually when I get something like the chicken, the chicken entree, I will get over the chicken a menu item get will be the chicken soft taco because I think it's got enough sauce to kind of. And it's it's small form factor. It kind of compensates for the not great chicken quality. Whereas I think their ground beef and their ground Turkey. You're pretty good. So, but here I think the it suffered a little bit from the being such a gigantic sizable. Protein forward thing it suffered a little bit from the chicken being not that great. That's all the components kinda worked this one definitely benefited because it was also on the drier side so with because of all the fries and starch in their benefited from a throwing a bunch of that that's that hot sauce on their del inferno, which is the hottest one because I also ordered up beyond avocado taco. So here's the issue. They dined in. They actually gave me a regular beyond taco. I didn't send it back because that's what they gave me, and I didn't wanna waste it. But the beyond cut Ataka was vegan. I wanna try it the one they gave me his only vegetarian. So it's beyond beat cheddar cheese lettuce and tomato in crispy shell that's the one that ended up getting beyond meat for people familiar with the term. It's a plant protein that's made with yellow peas a bunch of different oils lime juice oregano Kumon, a bunch of different components on. And it's a pretty good substitute meat. I don't think it's good as impossible. But it's pretty good and it works. Well, I think it works better ground than in a Patty. This is nice. The beyond. I mean, it's just a del taco with beyond meat instead of ground beef. And because it's seasoned. You're basically just getting the texture of it. But just without the flavor. So you're losing a little bit of a something, obviously, you can notice that you can tell it's not beef. But it's still very satisfying in the way that crunchy taco is. And I love the del Taco Bell tacos favorite tacos. So I think this is a great vegetarian option. We didn't. We didn't we barely touched on tips and salsa, which I guess we don't need to until later, but I will say that I forgot to get chips and salsa at the Culver city del taco. So I had to make a separate trip today to just get chips and salsa through like a psycho. But I will say the chips also which comes with people to guy. Oh, and I don't usually get chips there because they always get fries ships. It's also pretty damn good. Matt your thoughts on del taco del taco half a million with the with the chain. You know? So I got something that I always get in. I don't usually tacos at delta. Right. I mean, this was I mean, I did say earlier than. I am a taco boy. But they're they're they're half. Pound cheese burrito. I think is one of my favorite fast food such a Goto, so good. I get out with the red sauce. Green sauce guy, but red sauce works too. And so it's just there's something about it. I think just in terms of like size and value. There's you're not you can't beat it. I. Yeah. Very because it's you can get like two of those and then fill up for less than three dollars. Right crazy. And I really like the refried beans. I always like how the cheese is like just melted enough kind of like it's kind of like almost like pulling apart as you're biding. It's it's still so good in that red sauce is so great the man packeted hot sauces are just phenomenal. I think they're so so good. Yeah. I think the Dell scorch was more flavorful. But it use the Dell inferno. We'll spicier del Scorpio L score show is a weezer song. And it was named after the Hudson. I didn't know that bring it all through. Maybe I'm always freak after all your one thing. Pretty cool. You name a wizard song L score show. But so that burrito eight it right wolf to down. This was lunch. Number two. It was just so so tasty to me, I really liked it. And then for the for the, you know, the taco I got the grilled chicken taco which the menu says freshly grilled marinated chicken savory secret sauce, crisp lettuce and freshly hand graded cheddar cheese in a warm. Flour tortillas that? Now, that's the one I was talking about curious your assessment. So I'd never had this before I. I I I did want something else. I ordered. This is actually not what I ordered. Oh, interesting. So we both. We both had a little mishap with happens at del taco. Does happen a lot. Yeah. So I had actually ordered the chicken grilled Chicken Street, taco avocado and also other little fixings on it. And that I was I ordered the yard bird to sort of be more one to one with that taco. So this is an exactly one, but it's close, and you know, I I don't hate flour tortilla. Tacos. I think that's fine. I just my preferences corn those corns. And, you know, the cheddar cheese, and that it tasted very like. It tasted good. I want to say that tasted good. But it tasted very. White to me like it tastes very American, and it didn't taste like a very authentic like representation of a taco. This is like what I would get at taco at a white friends like families. How's your like chips and salsa is Doritos? It was like, no. It's not right. I think the white girls. My stepdad used to make taco salads for us. And it was always like ground beef lettuce in like Doritos this loud. This is weird. And also, don't you know that I'm Mexican you're being racist? The wider famously is Stony taco. But I I thought it tasted good it tasted. It did taste fresh lettuce was really good all the ingredients individually. Right. We're good. I think that that sauce which I suspect is ranch. Like, it seemed like it was Ranjin quality to me. But I don't know if it's one hundred percent ranches like some sort of their approximate Kremlin. Yeah. I think it's got a little mayo. And it may be. Yeah. So cool making even why? Yeah. Like sort of mayo and cheddar cheese did sort of throw me off a little bit because there's also very like cool cooling ingredient. Right. But I thought it was tasty. And I mean, it went down nice with that. When I added the Dell Scorpio's it it gave it a little extra flavor. That's definitely like that's what I think. Del taco kind of has. I think Jack in the box is kind of similar that they've got their portion of the menu. That's that's bore Mexicans Mexican food actually Jack in the box. It's become a smaller and smaller portion of their menu. But then they've got some stuff that's more like American than some kind of like walks. The line is a little bit more of a hybrid of that. I guess I guess Taco Bell to some degree is a lot like that to some some decidedly on authentic options, Michio. What was your del taco experience? I got the case case oh crunch taco. I read that. I just read the actual product description now sure crunchy taco shell loaded with more of everything you love like more season beef more. Freshly great cheddar cheese, crisp lettuce priced fresh diced tomatoes, the Nestle than a flour tortilla with a layer of creamy case. Oh Blanco in between. So this is I was trying to do. I was trying to mirror. My order. Yeah. I was trying to marry my order as well. And. This is this is definitely del taco answer to the Gorda. It just is. I know exactly what you're saying. When I when I think about like that this tastes like tacos, I would eat like a taco night dinner like, yeah. Even this one which is spruced up that being said, yeah. The ingredients are fresh. Yes. I think I wanted more out of this just because like it seemed like it was like a Taco Bell product. I should tell I should tell everyone as you're you're talking. You're you're holding a del taco Cup and pounding it on the table for emphasis like a judge. Judge Dredd for fucking del taco. Judge fit. It was tasty. It just it just even this. Even this spruced up version was like. It just was kind of like playing sure. But, but but the ingredients were fresh like that that is something that you can tell I think they've improved that at del taco in recent years, the fresher, avocado, fresher, fresher cheese, fresher tomatoes. So I liked it. I enjoyed it. Was it was it was it was pretty good. Nick the burrito. I got you may notice it you may notice the name of it an epic case. Oh, chicken burrito. How that's right epic. Epic caso. Thank you for bringing some enthusiasm to this epic case. Oh, chicken Britos loaded with fresh grilled chicken tacos, famous crinkle cut fries. Creamer, case Blanco hen graded cheddar cheese and handmade pig ago. I did not know that the fries in it. Yeah. When I ordered. I had no idea. I couldn't see I thought it was like I couldn't tell there was rice and beans in this thing. Right. Because they on the big board. You can't really see in the detail of their fries inside of it. That was an issue. I had to go to look up everything. Like, what is that thing? And then I would look online to see what it is poor form by del taco there. I get easy. I should say that I went to the del taco up in Burbank. Because the one by you, sometimes has some issues you went out of your way to go to a different through takes longtime with rain here me, and they fucked up that's a that's a del taco theory about that. And it's that one person only works. This is the one on Glen oaks boulevard. I saw a guy room in there from looks like he was coming from another story behind the counter. I liked it. I like it was. It was good. It was a mess. Here's the thing. Yeah. I don't think that that. I feel like the the what's it called piggy. Oh, yes is just a little out of place there. That's a good point. I didn't touch on that. But then actually it doesn't it your way. Tacos favor. No, I'm not trying to I'm being honest. You get a pocket of Pika guy. What's going on here? Right. Because it is a dry burrito. And you would think like, oh, it's there to add some some moisture, but it doesn't really where I'm out in the mild sausage. I put ice gorge open. Now. I now I just do the mild sauce Scorpio is probably the best sauce there. Yes. And but I liked it. It was the fries Frazer bureau tree. I know that del taco has Good Friday have grapes rice, but put it was. I don't know. I don't know how they didn't here. There was one sticking out of it and looked dead. But we're going to say I was I was just going to say I'm sorry for partly cutting you off there. I don't know if this is the right protein for the fries Brita like they might they might wanna throw some some stake in their some some ground beef. You say that they have poor quality chicken. Because chicken is the thing. I get the most at delta interesting, the chicken, I order things with chicken at the most of anything have you considered? You maybe have poor taste food. I mean, we knew that when we started the podcast as well. I orbited every time and every time I don't like. I like the chicken product. I do I usually do the chicken. The spicy Jack chicken case India. But then again there it's covered up with a bunch of cheese staff. I mean the spikes. But I do the spicy chicken burrito lot. And that's like my go-to burrito. Like, I do like the bean-and-cheese breeder chicken. I do that more than even the the ground beef. Yeah. I do. I think they're I. Yeah. I think that's fair. I guess when I have the chicken in isolation. I don't I don't think it's the best. Like, I don't think is a lot of flavor to it. But yeah. Usually in the context of in the context of these menu items that does work. So the burrito was good. It was kind of honestly, I've had better Taco Bell burritos. Well, of course, you're going to say that. Also, as I left I had accidents popped the trunk to my car. I sat down it was in my hoodie pocket. So my gut opened up the phone. Dr. And all of our recording Quinn was sitting right there in the trunk. Oh, my God in the parking lot parking lot. And it didn't get stolen didn't swipe. Well, there's the thing that's Doboy on us. So I think everyone who went up to steal it saw that. It was dope figured it was just curse. No one would wanna record on it. People kept trying to close the trunk. Tire del taco and Glen oaks boulevard of your trunk pops. Open no-one no-one no-one messed anything. It's nice to know me. There's a lot of garbage in that trunk anyways park, my car and leave all my valuables there. On the honest people, Burbank, California. But yeah, it was good. It was good. Yes, it's close. Let me tell you know, but really came on strong. It's it's judgement time. We gotta decide how we're going to to gauge these chains. And so Matt you've been listening to the turnament, but just a refresher for you. And for our listeners, we're going to judge each of these from zero to ten ref stripes, white stripes represent tacos, black stripes represent burritos. If you get all ten it's a perfect shirt. And we will and then we will award the, golden whistle. That's the best chips and salsa. But we'll start by judging Cuba. In white, stripes and black stripes. Tacos, boxer Britos. Okay. Well, yeah. I really liked that taco. I did say that it was too wet. Yeah. I offered, but you know, I feel like I offered a positives. And criticisms for both a compliment sandwich. Burrito. Someone who's been Rosa for before they're gonna roast you for that post mate. Sog? I'll get it. Drag me haters. Me. See if I care if if you're on team Matt hashtag met fuck if you don't like Matt hashtag fuck met. Oh, no. Yeah. Come at me frigging care. I live for the drag. Be. So I think for the for the for the taco, I'm gonna give give four white stripes. Wow. Yeah. I I liked it quite a bit. And I think for the for the burrito. I think I gotta give it I gotta give it four. Also kid, you have stripes stripes. I might even do floor and a half four and a half a very good score and del taco del taco well for that burrito. I mean, I love that burrito. So much. Yeah. That's an easy five five black stripes live lacks drives. And then for that taco that talk. It was I was fine. But I thought it was a little rough representation, and you know, as the as the lat next guest representation matters. So I'm going to say. Give it a two and a half two and a half. Yeah. That stuff. Wow. Nick did that just sink del taco ship? Here. I go you're both crying. The taco for in for key Joba, I'm gonna give it four and a quarter, white stripes. It was good. The burrito. I will give. Three and three quarters, black stripes. Lau another good score bell taco for the taco. I will give it. Three and three quarter black stripe. I'm sorry. Black stripes. No, white stripe light shapes three three quarters, white stripes. I got it. I got it. And then also in for full transparency I saw had. The came with a large drink until taco. Thank you for saying. It was going to say with my epic burrito. And I got a large coke as well. That was what I was slamming, by the way, speaking Hausa, DIKO, good Belton. I did I put a lot of you know, what the ice melted. Pretty quick get it together. The climate. And then. For the burrito from del taco. I will go. For while stripes. Lau that's a very good score. Cubo her this is booking clo-. It's tight it's neck and neck. We haven't even eroded the golden whistle. Oh, yeah. We gotta get to golden whistle. What we'll we'll touch on that before we get to we render are ultimately judgment, Cuba. The mad rancher taco. I thought was nice. I will just say that. I was nice, and it was solid. It was maybe a little overcomplicated. But I think it was good. I'm going to say this is three and a half white stripes the ground beef burrito. I like the Britto components. I think that the ground beef itself as maybe not their best protein. However, everything else worked like the option of a wheat tortilla. I'm gonna go four black stripes. Wow. Del taco the avocado taco this is really good. And they did they did a very nice job. And I think is meatless taco this is this is a damn good option. I'm gonna say four white stripes the epoch case. Oh, chicken burrito. As epochsc. Oh, it's no Homer's Iliad. However, I will say. It was pretty good. I just I think it's a little dry. I think the Shukan does work all that. Well, with the fries may think Mitch mitch's point the guy was a lot of place, they should rethought. This one a little bit go three black stripes. Wow. Closer to Homer Simpson. Then yet closer to home or city closer to Homer Simpson. The Homer of the classics. Okay. Well, a golden whistle. Oh, my golden whistle. Del taco. I I look at the guy who was not was like pretty good the salsa. They have a lot of options that Kito, but there are fine. But they don't particularly impress me. The chips, I think are much better at del taco. I think that the Cuba chips were kind of. Cocco? Del taco gets Mike, golden whistle. What's your assessment by golden whistle? Go secure Dogo double. Wow. Because guess what? There's a lot of different. There's a lot of different sauces. You have more options you have way more options. Look del Scorpio their packets us. It's the it's very good. Yeah. That's great. But I mean, just because you get you got six different options at Kyoto by you can't help. But you gotta go with it gets the, golden whistle. I don't know if they'll tacos chips are that. Great. I was I was I don't usually get them. And I was impressment. I got no sides have the next time. We get some chips and salsa Matt yet chips and salsa segment from these chains. Yeah. You know? I I like both. But I do think I gotta give the golden whistle to Kyodo. But I do like I like variety I like to dip. I'd like to dip a lot and I like to dip different. Yeah. They can't really compete with that. They they just have the jail there. If you even want to count the sauce packets. Are you getting a little their split decision on the golden whistle? I'm not nervous. What's there to be nervous about that? Your delta echo will go down my del taco. It's our del taco. Everyone gets to enjoy. That deafening. Hell, yeah. From outside. The whole neighborhood joined in okay? So. Oh, it's it's time for a decision. One of these is going to progress to the finale one of these will go down to the loser's bracket and that chance kitchen where potentially the riff then's Leary essentially began to the raft. Dennis leary. Who would then feed it to Bruce the shark jaws? I mean, yeah, he'll be he'll be tossing jaaz his mouth. And meanwhile, one of these chains will stay alive to go to the finale to potentially be fed to Bruce Vallance to punch punch-up Doboy from here spice punchline. So that boys will be better. Okay. We will count down from three hours and the winner of the loser. What are we usually say we've gone back and forth? You saw what are we usually say go back and forth. Okay. We you. Sung says we go back and forth. Don't listen to me asshole. I did the math of it helps you did the math of of which one stripe. Okay. Hold on. Hold that for one second sit on that for one second. And we will we will get that after we were under our verdict. We'll see if it syncs up because I'm curious about that. Thank you. Okay. We'll countdown from three to one. And then we will say our win. Will say the one that's winning at the same time the winner, we're saying we're saying winter we're saying the winner when we finish our countdown starting from three to one Q toba. Oh, yeah. The lines up. Del taco you set. You didn't say anything. I'm shocked. You voted for dive in this in this individual matchup, like del taco more more of a del taco partisan. But I think Yuba did a better job. See mitch? His face. Oh, my voted to heal taco delta. I delta was great. I love del taco in this individual matchup. I think item by item. I think you. Dr yourself in the foot man, why don't you know, I'm having fun for God's sake. You've done it. Now, Nick, I tried to put my biases aside preconceived notions of what what's the early aside? This is the best in this match. I thought that was maybe gonna I was gonna I was gonna because I knew you were gonna in my head. I thought you were going to say del taco. And I thought you were maybe going to say go, and then I was not gonna say anything great Mitch reveal hate insane. What the hell don't on much saying? And then. Thought we'd be the other one shocked on his side of the table here. Mitch didn't say anything about. I was gonna say del taco inside with you. Right. But it's unanimous Q Dobie. Oh, yeah. You shut yourself. You're the one shot yourself in a foot. It's not the only thing. The sheriff. He's saying he shut a load dispatch right out of excitement. Jesus christ. Oh, that's wild. That's crazy. Well, Cuba moving onto the finale. Del taco stays alive and fat chance kitchen perhaps it can scrap its way past bookie Tomas and make its way back into the finale. So we can Taco Bell del taco Bachup. But is not to be on paper. As of this moment. You were saying them at does lineup. Demented lineup. It was close Kito behead twenty four points total. They'll talk at twenty two point two five. So they in two golden whistles to one golden whistle. Yeah. Yes. I didn't even mentioned this when I was talking del taco. I was recently at the oldest location in bar sto. Yes, I've been to that delta. It was cool. It's a great del taco. They'll treat your proper. Then believe it was great isn't your identity that you like delta del taco? We're talking individual manageable fascinating things about you. Which is not a compliment to you. How boring you are as human being like del taco. I like the minions and then I have a wife. That's my personality. I'm Nick I completely shocked. Yeah. Well, completely completely blown away shocked. Well, how do we I mean? I don't to get ahead of it or. Yeah. That chance kitchen, but I kind of I kind of like it's kind of like, it's odd. I think del tacos pretty good. It's got some great dogs. It's gonna be tricky. It's gonna be tricky against Tomasz which does not belong tournament. It's too much of a local chain. Against the spirit of the tournament should've been so the Nells she'd been Moser, I don't want delta off pressure ruby. Del taco is gonna get to the finals. Wow. Really fucked up nigga. Fuck it up. You know, for yourself being honest being truthful by not putting my thumb on the scale. Let's be let's be clear, you were not honest. When you when you said that that guy said you can only have that happened. That was true. You can ask my wife who lives in Canada. Okay. So that. Wow. That was that was a wild wild round exciting of much madness. Twenty nineteen the finale will be out next week. Now, it's time I say we've got a food Steph decide if it's worth putting in your mouth. It's snacker wack, and hey, Mitch we met met Berkovitz in Chicago, Illinois, when we did some shows, they're a lovely, man. And hey, he runs burqas popcorn. You may have seen from NBC nightly news. He gave us some popcorn to review, and we are going to give this a test shop. Now, look, I've I've self identified as a popcorn skeptic. That's another thing about me insane. I contain multitudes insane. I like del taco. I liked the minions. I have a wife, and I don't like popcorn. This is a am also superfan because they all score. So we're gonna try some this. How do you feel about popcorn? I think it's tasty treat. I don't like when it gets in my teeth, yet sucks. That's one of the. I like to get it at the movie theater without added butter. Added butter. It gets too. I'm not trying to get my hands all wet and Rabi theater. I got you. Yeah. No one wants that. That's, yuck. Okay. So this is this comes in a golden sleeve, very very prestigious. And it looks like I've got some some caramel corn in here. I'm going to take a little bit of this. Are they do we know the varieties we got here? I think they're both the same. Oh, this is a billion dollars that that you sung shouting from the other room bring up the description. From the website, man. I do I don't wanna eat right now because I just went to the dentist, and I mean, it looks and I actually I took a bite of this before it has like gold flake side. It little like little goal goal. Plex opulent. This is this is got. We just opened two of these. They were different flavors. It's fair to assume, you know, how yielded Emma? Accidentally. I just want to I just want to yell at wider. Is my falling. Yeah. Pieces. Fuck you. I'm glad I did it. I like this. I'm really jumping into the year. I apologize for that. You could avoid that. Yeah. What's what's what's the fuck? Is that thing that people have that? They can't hear crunching sounds. It can hear those being a baby. Phony AMIS, oh Fonje being a baby or so phony a-? This is a let's see fuck. There's this copy here is so dent on this web air did get warm trying to I'm trying to you're wearing a sweatshirt and doors shut up. I'm trying to read it into the product description of the website. This copy is very let me let me just give you a taste of this. So you can see here how dense and fundamentally and helpful it is in terms of actually figuring out. What the what you're eating billion? Yeah. Yeah. We know. But you know, heart is to get your hands on salt from the Norse gods secret stash and the island of Lezo if that wasn't enough there's real gold on the popcorn to do. You know, it's real gold kings, queens, tycoons fire breathing dragons, the etcetera etcetera etcetera this goes on for two full paragraphs. It's called the most expensive popcorn in the world. And it's caramel corn. It looks like this is caramel corn covered in twenty three karat edible gold flake. Now. I think this is a tasty popcorn now, Nick. Yes. You don't have to take down the him website, for God's sakes. I'm just saying there's a lot of copy. It's hard to see what you're actually eating. Email your friends and tell them, okay. Who's my friend? No. Yeah. Song? He'll take care of it. It's very tasty. It's very good. I. I don't know about gold. Who cares? Always. I feel the same way. It's fun. I mean, I the billion dollar popcorn or whatever. Yeah. I'm sort of. I mean, not to be gross. But I kind of curious how this comes out. The goal log. I think you're gonna go the mog fucking disgusting. Don't try to sell that bad. Boy. I got news. We nick. It's easy for me. This is snacks. Tasty as hell it tastes absolute snack. It taste buttery under the caramel. It doesn't taste like regular caramel corn. There's like a buttery nece to it. That's really really taste. Yeah. We met this guy. Look, we have no allegiance. We have no allegiance the boys. Can't be bought everybody. We don't own this guy. Anyone anything? I would tell you that. This was a whack. Yeah. You're lucky Berkowitz. I think it's I think it's pretty good as popcorn goes. I think I apologize. I can understand caramel corn a little bit more than generic popcorn. Because it's like, okay. This is like a like a little treat. It's a good execution of a caramel corn, which is. And think it's well done. I think the gold does need to be on there. I guess that's the gimmick. But I just had a goal them over the diamond in the MARTINI like, I don't need that. And I think that copy could be a little bit. I'm into the Martine the places will do that. Nobody like it'll be like the, you know, the dollar MARTINI and they've got like an actual diamond in there or they've got like dining Richie rich with the diamond boys lifestyles vary on the up and up. Hold on. This isn't a place frequently this is the kind of thing that you'll look on a website, and they'll be like, the world's most expensive, cocktail and swallow the diamond rich. That come out cold. Versus. Open these two. It's completely different snack. Well, what are what are we gonna do with the we're going to leave him in your apartment and collect dust your nose badmouth agreeing fucking it's ridiculous. Because what it's a double snacker. Guess what we're still doing it review in an old classic. I think Mitch just wanted just wanted to do. So will you we've got some Oreo mega stuff. Here's the thing. We were trying to get the Oreo most stuff which is the one that's like bigger than the mega Steph. Instead, we ended up with a mega stuff. It's the only one we could find a pretty granular difference between the two I guess. He looked at me and he wins. So I had to say so. Yeah. Fucked up, buddy. This is my fault. The mega stuff is. I mean, it's like a step up from the double stuff, but not quite as extreme as the most stuff in terms of having a ton of stuff inside of it. Thanks stuff level breakdown. It's it's it's the third tier of stuff thing about these these overly stuffed Oreos how much fucking creamy need come on get much too much. I don't like this walk really good because it's an Oriole. But it's wack because I read over regular Oriole or a double stuffed Oreo. I've never have almost green pointing the taste of the green too much to me. Yeah. I agree. I've never had it. I've never had it where I've been to the Orioles cream shot out of the sides. Yeah. Yeah. This is this is not I prefer the double stuff in the regular Oreos. I would say is it criticism. I've never gotten a too much cream. I I think it tastes good. I think I liked the way that cream tastes. I just don't know what what level of Crema. Will you be happy? You know, why do we have to have mega? Why do we have to have its I agree? I agree. I'm still going to give it a give it a snack because the Orioles. But if I'm ranking these get the get the regular, the double stuff don't think this is too much very one hundred percent. I was critical of it. I'm giving it a snack to. It's it's great. It's no good. Really good. If this was an Oreo. It'd be cookie would eat. But I think the other ones that for me. It's wack. I've I like the cookie more cookies thing, I agree. I agree hydroxy predates Oreo Oreo is like the Pepsi, but Pepsi's seeded. So how about that Oreo? Oh, it's like it's like a Pepsi was than coke. Yeah. Hydrog still around still around. But you know, like hydroxy needs to make commercial where. Jenner hands on Oreo. Just like a restaurant, we value feedback the feedback. Today's Email comes to us from DC Thomson DC rights. Hey, Nick and Mitch I know both of you are big fans of the Mario universe. Right. So I was wondering what foods you would like to eat from that world, mushrooms. There's little berries. Yo she would eat and Super Mario brothers apiece. Those were Apple's Yoshi was eating are they berries apples? They're apples to they can be maybe they're maybe both for God's sakes. Let's say everybody wins even add Donkey Kong or Zelda to those pixellated those pixel is foods any any any video game foods, you would like to eat anything comes to mind. Matt you're something of a gamer, and yeah, we not said this before I thought I think we've done this. We've covered similar territory, but we've never I don't think we've actually been in the Mario universe. Oh, it has to be Mario we're starting. I think this guy staying very much in the Nintendo sided thing. Zelda? I got an answer for that. Go for it. You know, what I want? I wanna slice of that cake at the end of Mario sixty four. I'd be satisfied that the celebratory cake the rescue cake. It has an occasion to it too. So it's the extra good. It's just for fun. The most satisfying wedge, you could possibly. I'm I'm thinking of the first thing I thought it was those like those big round apple berries that Yoshi. It's all in one gulp. Yeah. He swallows those down. And then he eight of them you lay and another Yoshi is born reduction works. I also, you know, I don't know if Mario creatures are off limits here, I'd like to wrap one of those fish. One of those one of those jumping. Yeah. Those big ole one. Yeah. Probably pretty good. What are those things called? They're not the bloopers the bloopers the squids with those big fish called. Mario big fish. What's that? Oh, achieve cheese. You yeah. I wanna I wanna get cheap. Yeah. I wonder how cheap would be. I think though, I think that'd be all right. And what about shy guy or they man or they animal you're eating. This guy may be fucked. It's like eating JAL. They have jobs. Yeah. You're right. No. That's that's like eating what I think you'd wanna eat what a bullet Bill. I was gonna say I was gonna say poison mushroom from the loss level. Pretty good.

207: Talk O' Bell 5 - Nacho Taco Edition (w/ Betsy Sodaro and Mano Agapion)

"This is a head gum podcast. I might watch some shit heads. Welcome back to another episode of high and mighty. It's me your boy. The number one. Johny joining me as always in the city of my nearly silent goes Arthur gamers, give them a shout-out. Doggy. My neighbors must be confused because it's the middle of the day. And I'm screaming screaming because I don't even know what part this is, but this is like Taco Bell her or five four. Yeah. Because we only talking about Taco Bell even off Mike to keep a lot of our own Taco Bell moments. But on Mike, I think this is the fourth one and my favorite because there's not really a great reason. We got a little we're really threading needle here, by the way, if you don't recognize recognize those voices from podcast in general, you will recognize him for previous mighty episodes. That's Jesse the body Ventura. In the Kool aid man, maybe. Especially your motto. Macchia small always that WWE. Ramon. Razer. He would later just go by Scott hall. When they joined the wwl him and diesel just went by their regular names. That razor Ramon, because there is a lot of cultural appropriation. Early on isn't Latin x at all. I don't know. Scott hale. Hall. All I can't say 'cause my accent. You say. Scott hall home, that was when racial appropriation was fun. And it would be like, oh, this guy is like Greek, we could just say the dream. Played Hakim the African dream the exact same skin tone as me. In his title Ashiq, too, right? She and she was perfect for when like Sargent slaughter, an American soldier disaster. We were like. We were like this. His move is like the camel clutch, and he was a bad guy. Oh my God. Even the positive ones like the positive representation for African Americans and women and stuff like that. You know what I mean? Like Harlem heat was like attack team. It's fucking cool as hell. But they it was kind of weird that, that's what they had to be named CoCo beware was the parrot guy. Representation for creeps in the undertaker. There's oh, creepy presentations peak in wrestling about gold dust. Yes. It's not gay. I don't know what I think is. That's must be he has a brother to brother. I think his dad was a wrestler to I think dust was gay. Two. We see or watch a documentary about gold dust brother was at this UCB WWE show. We did his father was there, and I did a parody of gold dust. Yes. So we will. This is nasty your scared of me for being gay might have been there. I think you might have been. Brawler on Dan black show. Yeah. Mike. That's funny that you're making fun of once again, another weird American mom, where we were like kill the he used. He used gay panic to me. Deserves to get smashed. They made him a salty. He was like a huge salted people. But it was funny because it's like a gay bully. Did he use their homophobia to believe him? America. There's a guy in the I don't know anything that much about wrestling, but Dan black was telling me there's a dune the WWE now who's a he'll. No one likes the bad guy. Because he's very like woke and liberal. And it's kind of like tongue-in-cheek, like, yeah, you'll be like the WWE merchandise store, and you'll cut a promo where he's like you're getting caught up in capitalism. Feeding the machine. Everyone's. Would fucking funny a little tongue in cheek because like he's standing in front of his merch. It's funny ever, get will they ever go so commentary heavy that we get nationalist, Nathan or something. Sure the underlying thing for a lot of these. I think that's happening. Legitimately horny right now. In here. Car smelled so good passenger seat heater was on that. I sat in the car for five more minutes, Instagram storing with you guys on your way. I'm putting it on my laugh. Closer. My no. Smells good. Tortilla cheese. Of it, the faith, Dave fucking. I don't think I could do it. It would fuck be too crazy on a seventy two inch monitor all day. I would never make a good food decision. If the Taco Bell was like edging for a week. Better. Get a fuck. It beefy five layer at the end. So we've been meaning to get together another Taco Bell episode because we won the hit the rattlesnake fry look. So. Tiffany's absolutely discussed. She thinks that you're not supposed to name food after an animal, it's misleading. Creepy animal. That's an awful name the really bad name diamondback fries is better. Make obviously. Longer to brat, like, right process, Nate Tiffany said they could have called them venom fries better better. Colin poisoned fronts. We'll kill you. What's your name of food after a animal that it's not? And it's a. This animal. Get your EKO live. Maybe that's they're covering all their legal bases like poison. They might as well. They might as good for you. You can buy our silence. If you have you sponsored the three of us we'll stop stop talking about our bowels noble noble. Works nuclear fries. Spicy, right. Yeah. Yeah. Nine eleven. Of burrito. That will fall in your stomach cop fully covered by the Saudis. This is the episode that gets me shut down. War on us. Information after you have your nine eleven radio, I love it. But I, I went on the app to use the time as part as part of my conquest for this episode and my, my local, T bell didn't have rattlesnake fries. But then my local bell doesn't have a drive through e strain. So I, I know the warriors a you guys is way better. Usually when I drive through on my way home. The flagship location flagship, the Lexington Hollywood Lexington vine guys. You see modern I there. Eweek. Quick men Gilly. Drove their high one time. And I was like I'm fine. I'm fine. I'm high, but I'm fine. And I bumped a Prius in front of me because there was the calamity of like they're sort of like an intersection moment of when you get in the drive through right ways to get into the drive get as e. We're as e. Disrespectful, animals. Does one in one. No one does one in one closer closer. I'm already they are willing to take. It's shocking, they're literally should kind of put up a full divider. But anyway, but anyway, we were doing that. And I was like, no En-ching. I'm going to be fighting entering in this motherfucker trying to cut the Q to Prius and I was high enough where like I couldn't back up in time. In fact, like, when I tried to back up, I just went oh, I went like forward again because I was now panic. I don't know if I should this story on this bycatch but one time, Tony and I don't Arlene who's awesome. We were very stoned going through a Taco Bell drive-thru, and we like drove past the first window, which is where you pay. It says she like put it in reverse. We had to we pay a he left. Yeah. Yes. So we went to two different taco bells this afternoon, I spent sixty dollars without a delivery fee. So this I just got fucking wanted. I didn't the only thing that I got on the menu that we've never had before are these new Nacho tongue or something came out. I feel only like a week or two ago. So we. I don't even put this episode out for like six months because motto is engulfed in scandal. Nine eleven scandal would be. So should we do a little mini? Boxing here. We got a few things just because I wanted them. Yeah. And I got a ton of things because I wanted them. Yeah, I got random amounts. But I- three two or one of a. I also get the seasonal items or something not so interesting. The watermelon freeze with, like little candy pieces. Watermelon candy freezer visas look like watermelon seeds. Interesting son, jug seeds potato griller. One of those, I got much of a case of deal with just cheese in extra. Baha saw I am not like a hack comic. But like Jack sauce and he was like, what? Extra Jack size, and he's like what peel my, by the way, Arthur is going wild horse. More special order, taser Reto, forgot to get you on right in your ten George horse. I wanna share that get get one, one of these got an impact just because. I got the little bonbons. Here's our pilot sauces. Diablo back. But they lost Verde, as we always just there, I liked Verde is like my third like every third top thing. Okay. So what do we have their this looks to be, what are the soft ones Gordeeva's, she'll lupus, I went with Nacho cheese troopers or their double decker taco. Put something out of its bag. Okay. Some sort of a crunch rap. Bettys favor. Baylor chicken rollers cheesy roller. I think that's what that is. What is this like a regular one? Maybe another one of. Dying. Little numbers. Jesus christ. If you think this is gross, by the way, free shot it off. Now, this is the us just moaning about food. In dirt. You gotta take. We got to be also I got some of the I love the beefy five layer, there's one the ads Fritos. Oh, great. Oh, great. Chalupa. All tax offer business. I love this, another smart chicken and steak. So there is there a burrito or air where the are there is there? There is other bag. Everything is these are three Doritos tacos and great. That's what these are three Doritos tacos and three CG sees. Great. Let me see if I have. CG. See why I'm taking a picture right now. Mark. There's something else here. What in more? I'm going to let me frame out my. Okay, I am. No, no. I want to. For. Doc. Oh, three Nacho tacos. Oh my God. Okay. Without it. If you'd like this makes me. So happy. Oh shit. Yeah. Oh, this log throwing thing that made me. Horny agaybi. That was the renaissance that. Any Sant's fair, the renaissance fair. The go-to that fair in heart me, I would be the fair, I would work at these are the Nacho tacos. I'm going to start where kind of okay that we're pretending is the reason the reason. But I even forgot at the beginning of this episode that's what we were doing. Yeah. The chips are fun in spicy, you guys going to do a SaaS lowest bite. Yeah. I gotta do. Okay. Jitter one. That's yummy. I would I would make this supreme I would add sour cream for future, and then it'd be fucking money. Chips are really good. I wanna know I would do all like nachos bell ground with these tips. Oh, how I'm sure that exists. Right. They've made it like smaller. And that's not a bad thing. They've kind of made it a little, I would call this medium sized. If, if the roll ups are small this medium. Yeah. This is like a taco, soft shell tacos supreme kind of size. What if their menu tiered stuff by size? That'd be interesting. Cheesier because everything is sort of interchangeable. You're like this is under specialties burritos, and it's technically case Rita which is I'm gonna take a sip of this. Watermelon candy shit. Oh, yeah. Let's do it. That's about because that's new that summer. That's fun. That's fun. I can't drink that for real, I will die. But what is the candy little seed, like, oh, I didn't pop one of those Boba. Bobo. I don't think it's because I don't think middle America bucks with Boba. All right. So just so it's like it's a chick lit. So gross, drinking soda chewing bubble gum. Out of it. Holy short spree. Those were really free of that. It's delicious way to ever have anything like this trough probably poorly designed to because it's hard to get a piece of candy through it. I gotta cheesy crunch lineup over here because I couldn't resist very, very resist. Doc. Oh, right. We'll get again good. And yeah. Make it supreme. Ooh, I'm gonna crack into my special order, which, as you guys all know is a case Rato with beans set of meat out of a cadre, ranch, extra Nacho, cheese, grilled well-done. Oh, shit that slower. Oh, yeah. It's the best hack I've ever heard. It's incredible. And I always forget, what it is. When I show up take Griddle I'm gonna try. It's quite. It's quite criminal say I loved the creamy goofiness bell. Labor's just did a really awesome move that made me hard. Some goop popped out of a SIEM in the tortilla, and you did the perfect move. I just getting that on your finger. Just I didn't wanna pass you a dirty gun, you know. Gotta white, my prints off that thing is fucking bomb like that tiff has been dying to find all my. She doesn't love the. She doesn't eat beef anymore, and she has like the chicken from Taco Bell. So I think that being a radio right in her wheelhouse. The beans are great. I really loved the texture, and I think if those, but, like, say it again, everything kind of is soft, but it's not not in a bad way. It's just like there's kind of the soft moment, I'm here for the paste. I'm here the paste flavors and my one of my favorite items. CDC's my favorite item behind his be five L. It's a minute to try to be five Al which is all pastes, the case, it's the case of Reto, but without even rice. That's pretty much the small version of this. Right. And then you get beef in there. Now, I'm doing a classic CG CDC with a mild, which is my favorite combo. Oh, I love mild and hot so much. I can't believe we they got rid of thought that was bullshit. I made in Crutcher Upshur premanent perfect. Do we respect? Oh, yeah. Contracts. You know that's the one thing that's not my favorite. I know. And I hate you for. I don't know. Why just I it's really hard for me to like it. Hold ads. My motto hazer. Stooges steve. Oh, god. All right. I should be like saving somebody's instead of eating eating fully all the way through hard. I do. I like didn't eat today. I knew this was happening. Yes. Same. I did some three PM. I did some anorexia shit. I, I ran three miles, I had just breakfast and some coffee, and it was really fun going through the drive through at, like two thirty felt just like the sun is the perfect place in the sky, where you're like this is like we're out of school like we have the last period off. So let's go to fuck at Taco Bell too. And we used to go to Taco Bell for lunch, like four days a week and high school. It's fucking and we have. And we have. Lunch and dinner before soccer practice. Go play soccer for like two hours so bad. My mom like Taco Bell, and I think I've said this, but like she hates restaurants and she liked Taco Bell. Like she like, makes every restaurant, we've been too, because she likes to cook so much to cook. She likes to roast restaurants being like she is a great cook. So I could get that where she's like this luggage sucks. Yeah. She loved Taco Bell. She loved the bean burrito. She loved the cheesy beans. I want to say, yeah, we never got those, but people fucking love something a little more delicate, and she loved to feel like a delicate woman, even into my family, love Taco Bell because they were like forty nine cents. Uh-huh. When I was that commercial, like it was like twenty thirty forty nine and then later forty nine fifty nine sixty nine oh I love it. I remember when I was in high school. They were forty nine because I could get I ate a ten pack by a week. Week five dollars at five twenty five. I would get a Cup of water and get a fucking ten pack of soft shock goes and eat them in high school. Just like wonder why I had fucking diarrhea decades thing they need to bring back retro packaging because that would be such a hit be. We saw today, the colors are so great. Great. Yeah. Oh, great that like the two the two dimensional. They just need to bring back because everyone will lose their mind. Yeah. We were watching a bunch of commercials today before we came to get pumped. Remember, do you remember? I remember mono didn't the MC hammer one where he jumps off the building. And then his shoot his pants pair shoot him down like floats down. 'cause they're like getting chased down by groupies. I love run up to the roof. Have a moment was dancing. Ray. Even though they're running rabid women, women. Off the roof and their fares you'd him down. That's awesome ridiculous. When he lands like. Baby. Legit to quote. It was so good. There was also one with little Richie Little Richard. I'm mixing up line or little red. Ritchie and Little Richard. Yeah. Where he's on a piano beverage lay in the desert. Oh my God. I'm opening this extra cheesy extra saw. Oh, yeah. Oh before before we go back to talk about commercials. I'm I'm rocking the cool ranch, the Reto logo which we have a couple of over here. Very good. I love them structural integrity goes fast on them. If you let it sit the meat will just funk in soak through the like the bottom is disintegrating, but it's still so good Saudi Reto who thought he'd Arita saga with beef. I will say an issue that's coming up in my extra cheese thing as the unmelted, jeez, I did request grilled well done. But I, I understand there people who are maybe not in love with their jobs, which makes total sense. Yeah, I'm getting a little bit of the string cheese affecting cases which isn't topnotch. I'm sorry. It's not top notch. Yeah. I'll give this cheesy. I don't mind it. You don't because I've known that feeling I think it almost kind of reminds me of talk about like this does taste like taco. I just realized I don't even know if I've been talking into the microphone for like, I'm a professional chew into it, too. Me too. So that's why I keep fucking. On loader loaded loaded. Delicious AAA chicken or just she chicken. And it's awesome. Third vocal. Good one too. That's a good pasty really good. Yeah. Okay. I want to try this, you know what I don't hate the string cheese in the case of the either. Yeah. But I might not ever get a chicken case at the again, I might only get strategies with extra Bajas. Yeah. You went extra cheese, two extra cheese and extra bond to order, extra, Jack guy. Just start. Jacking really fun. When you're in the drive through with Betsy, and they recognize her Dahbi from disjointed that makes happened once, because they were just like deadly happened. One time and they were just like. You are Jabbie. I'm at Taco Bell. Three in the morning. I it affirms that open my mouth up. Yep. After damn, I still love the case of Reto so much you guys. Yeah. You your goop was great. I think this is a AAA chicken loaded griller or someone was gone. When I was going for me, the potato one's my favorite griller. I think it's the chicken, there's potato what's the other one? There's just the cheesy roll up, but that's not really a griller. I think third one in the griller family recommend the potato stuff. Michael Jackson's griller. Going back to CDC another by my heart. Stop for a full minute. I'm going to break, because as you guys know, we always start really high on meth high and then something happens. I'm not there yet, but something happened. Something happens. Our bodies. Doing this to yourself. We say fuck you bodies. Have we ever had a choosy, tra- Lupu crunch? Is that too much, crunchy? I don't think so. I'm not afraid of that much crunch. I can handle the crunch, bro. They want to try that. I think that's a good. That's a good idea this burrito with Fritos in it is pretty damn good. And I don't even really like Fritos but you know what it is on my God will, it's just a different taco. It's like finally something that isn't one of the five taco bells yellow Brown. Yes. Something completely out. You're like, oh, this is a flavor. That is not Taco Bell. Wow. This, this watermelon freezing thing way to sweet. But it is a nice way to punctuate and cleanse the palate melted candy. Yeah. I could see in like high school and college putting vodka nap. Thinking I was the Queen of the world. And when I finish it thinking. Yes. Big. They have to give a bigger straw. Don't wanna roast them, but they gotta give bigger straw. I don't wanna roast you, but, but the straw game is week. We, there's a Chiluba Lupu in front of me. There's oh, I think I did too Chilubas and Nacho cheese, because I was I was trying to fuck with the custom or a little bit. See what I could do the I I'm gonna think about it as Fredo thing, just we stay on the free, right? Yeah. Just so I can stay on the same page. We're not we are. We're we're jumping around Betty. What are you eating another bite of that case deal? With string cheese in a loved drink tea did not disappoint. You have no. Hey. Room. What do you think of the Fritos mono? I always loved that one. Oh, okay. Upgrade it with more cheese or something. Yeah. Yeah. The fear does add something different. Traditional Taco Bell. I have a question. I love the Taco Bell was the chipotle's way of the eighties. I really believe that like there was a moment. We're talking about was like we're fresh. We chop are lettuce we chop tomatoes here. We are a fresh, I still think they are. I think that was a pitch of theirs. Right. Like that sort of thing because you were like, oh, it's beef lettuce and tomato tortilla and tortillas are healthier than burger bonds. Yeah, it was just like Americans have always done that. Where we're like no. It's low main- the Chinese people eat it. It's healthy. We don't that's like a Swedish person being like a bacon cheeseburger like Americans. Yes. Healthy new. Classic American stereotype heading that direction. Not that I give a fuck. I don't know. I think AAA is maintaining still pretty fresh. They're very fresh. I think that's will they'd be forced to Franken Franken food. I don't think they'll ever fuck around with that because I think they're built for their aiming for, like, I think wider might have even said this on one time, but they are aiming to be your offices order, just, like we are harmless, yet, we have four different we have like X amount of different things, we could do, which is not too many guys order from us, we, you can make unhealthy healthy. You can make it vegan. You can make it this you can make it that. And so it's just like it's very like you can make it, you make it that you make lead. And the VM a goes to. Mambo number five. Well, I think that's slim. This. 'cause that's Chris walking. Yeah. There it is mama, number five is Lou bega while this case, a read on what the fuck is that says. I'm opening killer. Leader.

Such a good combo of the supreme, if occasion, though, that always works so lettuce and tomato ad for this specifically to is good because it's a little bit crispy. Oh my God. I love the table of flop here. I've got like a little mini garbage bag. Narrow down narrow stuff down. We should check this other case out. Yeah, that's the chicken when, I think, yeah.

Feels actually it's not even sexual feels like adulterous. Bad after I do it. Like why did you do that? You knew you knew. In a moment, just making a decision based on wanting to come. And then when it's over being like what the fuck where you too. What the blowjobs I don't need to make eye contact with you. Facing away for Betsy Amano this time, we're all just in a corner. I contact during a blowjob. What's your opinion? Gabor's. I like it. But when there's a my mouth, it's hard for me to win. I mean rollback the second one. I. Nice. Yeah. But it doesn't have to be I mean, it doesn't have it doesn't have to be nice. Need it for some reason? I roll like this again. Get sued. Is crossing the debt goes in the mouth. Like Jerry Lewis. I five I'll be five. Okay. So I know two of my items are CG and be five. I'll for sure. No, my third item. I think I have to think outside the box. And I need to pick something that's because those are kind of similar the be five Allan. This sort of similar mouth feel funny. I think they're different or different enough. But I think I need to go like, for the sake of these the only three things I can have. I think I need like palate, cleansing type and I don't know what the answer to that is. Something like a sweet thing, but maybe like a chicken Verde sour cream burrito or that. Yeah, I mine would be case radio. I'll fuck the case does bomb. I love the that's my number one. I here's what we need to talk about real quick. I just wanna 'cause I had when I took a bite you like to add the extra cheese often, the case rito is that it's like we know you like it's just more cheese, cheese and more tortilla. And just gives it that gummier feel which I think we all enjoy. Gummy layer between that's from the outside. Tortilla is so good. I wanna be able to buy toward he is like this. Gummy. They definitely had some Clark Griswold. Motherfucker. This. Stupid storyline from biggest vacation already made cookies last Pat, like a packet of milk drinks. And he's gone bad funny Diablo is. Mike. I want them to win them to go back to more different types of office, that aren't heat. I like mild, the best. I just like the flavor of their saw. Yeah. So to answer your question. Oh, sorry, I'm gonna go. That's your first is case Rita case Orito, crunchy taco supreme. And the naked chicken to Lupu I love so much. That is only limited the fried chicken shell I that's my third. I love that so much so cruel that they take it away for a month, Elliott dude. It's key to do. Kito is like it's almost the same palette, but in Kito, you're aiming to use fat as a source, even Fava's your energy source even more. So you have to enter your body to Kita, genyk state, which is where it's burning fat for fuel instead of carbohydrates. The severe limit your carbohydrates. Even those come from vegetables, what you have to like you eat less vegetables than paleo to or, you know, like you more. But you can't fuck with anything that adds a lot of carbs, keeping your carbs, solo like on extreme versions of the diet, or the original version, that I heard a few years ago you like pee on a stick to see if your body is in ketosis. How what how do you know there's like a steak, there's this test of how your key tones agency to? Yeah, I've not yet one hundred of out every time I know and into my. Got a little scrambled bomb. There's no shame doing what you want to with your body. Okay. Right to choose. All my joy, you're can ever removed at any trimester keel. I really forced her. Mr. Aren't ready? You bad. I would be an awful mother. Okay. What have we? Now we have to sweep things, but have we eaten all the, the salty? Oh, real quick. I went to what's your to. I went to Disneyland last week in the tram going to there. A woman in two kids, I think they were her kids, but she from her backpack pulled out a bunch of Taco Bell them to pound before, and like your coolest lady war. That's a savvy. Fucking mom. It's going to say or fortune, and the kids are probably fucking palm. Fucking. Yeah. Get them then they don't deserve it. Is that potato the potato? Yeah, this is the best griller Hannie. That's the best griller for sure. Betsy just did a classic thumb Bellina, the old dumbly known to see the classic. My order would be the potatoes are underrated. What is your good? Yeah. What's your top three? Contract supreme or else you have to kill someone you know very closely. Oh my God mono it'd be you. Greg traps. Potatoes off taco naked chicken Chiluba interesting. I like can't get enough with soft tacos potatoes in that is I just had that fucking thing is very good. That's yeah. The potatoes break up the mush more than any other. Yeah. More than any other thing at times like the beef just like its own mush? Yeah. Even the chicken and stuff is kind of like its own mush the potato fights back against it more than most. What would be the moment? We're Taco Bell. Does. Like, what's, what's taco bells coke to moment? Do you know what I mean? Like they jumped into the beef recipe or something. I wonder I don't think they can fuck with that. Do you know what Amy? Minds. Yeah. Especially because unlike Domino's nobody's complaining, nobody likes this is shitty. Everyone's like we love it for out is where I feel Domino's had that moment where it's like, wow. Really, don't like our beat the more. I hear pizza. The lesson seems like people I, I appreciate a fuck that ad campaign where you're just like yeah. We are food sucked. We're, we're working on it is so much better. Now. It's more palette for sure. Good. Is there any element in the whole Taco Bell sweet? That you would be like you know what we can revise this, the cheese or the produce or revise the chicken. I think they can go from, like Ashek and being like the cube to being like a little grilled skeet, like just a little bit of like burnt artificial burn, even you know. Yeah, very Oscar. Mayer. Feels like cold cut Turkey. Yeah. You kind of what kind of think that they could do, like just like even like shredded chicken is not maybe not the right answer. But like a slight something that resembles chicken more. That's all. We have steak is it the same with this? I don't touch. I haven't really stakes. Never also like football, no one of those little red. It's or they're like just like they're like, do not order acts steak was a big one. They're like, do not order steak. It comes like in a bag or it's dehydrated. And then we add water to like, make it look more like real estate. Water to make something look, more like steak water more solid. That means it's a little too powdery. Yeah. Exactly. That's. Well, I want also take a moment to address something here, the only we're talking about Domino's. They had the rep that their food, wasn't actually that good taco. Bells rip is the the runs. Run for the border runs for the board. I think that's tied into old, Mexican food stereotypes, what we used to say, right? Used to be like, oh I had Mexican food my stomach. You know commercial business. Delay bathroom and other Cinco domi-. But. Stink. Oh day dump. Stink. Oh did. Ma'am. Loss. Pu pu. But I think I want to clear up that I don't think Taco Bell does fuck up your system. I think I wanted to be clear for both Taco Bell because they're listening. Man will make good commercials. It's just are agreed misuse of Taco Bell is what I want to combat on, because like you don't blame the beer if you vomit after you funnel for. I drink too much. So I just want to say, like when I talk about what taco bells do into my body. I'm not referring to any specific item any specific taste. It's just that it's a food if when we call it pasty, it really does increase the volume in which you could ingest. Yes. Want so many different items. There's not enough there like Pringles taste better every bite. And when you stop your reset yourself. Yeah. Yeah, yeah, it's a truly addictive. We, we are abusing. Are we are Buzek? Using? So I just wanna convey that to Taco Bell. So when you sponsor. Fluid. Taco Bell, please Vons or this podcast that starts with the nine eleven. Good gone down. I aboard are my choice. Starting to realize these stories are coming from. I'm dying over here. We still have some delicious sweets to eat some there was also a cheesy roll up in there that was plagued with the shredded cheese, Itis. If you ask me, didn't it? Maybe it took us a while to record but it also congealed. It'll be. Oh my God. I'm so full. Let's let's pitch. I know we do this every episode, but I think we can do it again. Let's pitch. What Taco Bell foods need to become existing? This could be taking food trend and Taco Bell ising. Should they go into a full flavor? Fusion moment, like a Korean barbecue thing or no? Yeah. That's a good question like a buffalo chicken SoKo could be pretty. Do they have done that? Chicken is rocked like every drill ring cuisine, right? Alabi I m I think that could be something to be explored. But I think I'm like buffalo to out a little bit also I think wings, but I stopped getting like buffalo chicken sandwiches and buffalo.

The Ocho: Taco Charlton gone | Injury talk | On to Miami

"Want to know more about what your favorite Ninjas have on their minds. Check out the American Ninja Warrior podcasts. It's available wherever you get your podcast and it's a great listen for any Ninja Warrior fan none of the in what world welcome to another episode of the Joe presented to you in partnership as always with sp nations blogging the boys dot Com Arja Hayami of course from bt and for my dear as you're humble host on the the Ocho it is Thursday September nineteen Thursday the third day and we're about seventy two hours depending on what you're listening to this away from the Dallas Cowboys beginning their third game of the season. We three is officially here. No more really looking back at we've now. The focus is the Miami Dolphins second home game of the season for the cowboys. If you had not noticed the don't play two consecutive home games at all all season long the only time the cowboys could feasibly play back to back home games bi week seventeen and then if they hosted a playoff game so we'll see about that but but these are these are some good times to be a cowboys fan. You know it's been a really really incredible incredible we just for the NFL in terms of storylines. It's been really somber in terms of the effects of things that have happened. Obviously you've got rothlisburger. Burger being lost with a season because of the elbow issue. You've got drew brees having a hand surgery going to miss about six weeks. You've got minkah. Fitzpatrick traded to the Pittsburgh steelers. You've got jalen. Ramsey wanted to be traded. I mean there's a lot going on it is a lot of people comparing it to the NBA. That's not my MBA from being honest if you're unaware I live in San Antonio Spurs fan we cover the Spurs at Espn San Antonio and so it's generally pretty boring. It's not the NBA that everybody else gets so. It's definitely been kind of a wild week but the focus is kind of settling in now cowboys dolphins. GotTa get to three wins. I should mention. I think I've said it already not this week but Jason Garrett. I'm GONNA write about this at some point later this week. She'll be able to look off for Jason. Garrett can do something on Sunday against the dolphins that he has never done before okay never and I mean actually literally never actually to be he did this once as the team's offensive coordinator back in two thousand seven Yeah my dad and I my dad was our guest here on on the Ocho on Wednesday's episode and so we talked about that two thousand seven season a lot and there's a lot of comparisons to draw between Kellen Moore and Jason Jason Garrett and whatnot but that year the cowboys started off five no before they fell ultimately to the New England Patriots and so technically Jason guys done that before but not what is the head coach the point. I'm making Jason Garrett can start off three no this Sunday as a head coach of the Dallas Cowboys and you think about it. I've I've said this before for many different times and a lot of people have people talking about how the cowboys don't quit on Jason Garrett and you never really see that the only true lost year they've really had was the two thousand fifteen season when Brandon Tony Romo got her and other than that I have only had one other season where they played what was technically a meaningless is game with no play offs online. That was the two thousand seventeen regular season finale in Philadelphia at a win. They had actually the last one that anybody had over over the eventual super bowl fifty to champion Eagles but my point is is that generally jason goods teams are competitive generally more often often than not they go into week seventeen with football meaning something for them and that has always for the most part been the case despite never starting off off three you know so you think about it. Jason Garrett who started off you know one into two and one and still and I know you're thinking like dude. It's just a game I mean. It's you know it's not that big difference. It's a huge difference. I mean think about how many times the cowboys have been short think about the three seasons from two thousand eleven to two thousand thirteen that they they were eight and eight nine those I mean you tell me you add one more windows. I mean you know obviously that changes a lot of things and so I really believe that you know if and when the cowboys do or three no oh conceivably foreign-owned next Sunday in New Orleans I mean that goes a long way. I mean you know and we're getting a little ourselves but my point is. There's some some legitimacy on the line this Sunday for Jason Geared in the Dallas cowboys as they host the Miami Dolphins. It is poetic by the way that you know he would be going for something. He's never achieved as a head coach against the Miami Dolphins. That's the team that is his start as a coach and he really values the time they spent their under. Nick Sabin certainly his longtime friend and so so really really interesting to see what comes to this like. I said it's an exciting time to be a cowboys fan. Wednesday was a big day for the Dallas Cowboys always in a sombre way and there was a lot of chirping about this on twitter. Hopefully we can put into proper context finally after you know it. It felt like you know I it was it felt inevitable for a long time but on Wednesday the Dallas cowboys because they had to elevate Robert Quinn who is returning from his two-game the game suspension they had elevate Quinn did the fifty three man roster. I mean everybody saw this coming back in training camp when Robert Clinton got suspended everybody you're saying well toppled. Charleston just got two more weeks on this team and that's really kind of all this was Taco Charlton finally released by the Dallas Cowboys obviously their first round draft pick just two years ago played in twenty seven games for the cowboys only accumulated four sacks eleven tackles for loss of really big with we if you know people love to throw around the term bust and I mean perhaps that's fair. I'm not about to defend tacos certainly not tacos time as a Dallas Cowboy okay but what I will defend is the front office and not that anybody's really attacking them but you think about what they've done. I tweeted this on Wednesday. Since two thousand ten in the first round specifically Dez Bryant tarrant Smith Mo- clayborn Travis Frederick Zack Martin Byron Jones Zeke Elliott obviously Taco Cocco late and Jewish and then they traded the twenty nine hundred first-round pick for Amari Cooper and people were throwing that tweet out and saying Oh yeah it's it's to Mrs in terms of Mo- clayborn Taco Dude in no universe Mo- clayborn amidst the way tackle Charleston was missing clayborn first of all was regarded by many to be the greatest cornerback back coming out since dion and so I mean the evaluation was universally shared the cowboys when it came to Taco the cowboys. I don't want to say they were alone. Obviously obviously there were other teams that like Taco but they were far more alone in that evaluation. They were in terms of clayborn. The other thing clayborn was a good player for the cowboys. I mean think about two thousand sixteen season that secondary people were really high on clayborn and Brandon Carr wanted to bring them back and he'll pro football. Focus has been green brand new car out of this worldly. It is kind of insane how he's still playing at a high level. Moakley just got hurt a lot. I mean he got got hurt a lot. He had injuries that obviously prevented him from getting on the field and clayborn and literally everybody's Defense Rob Ryan was a defensive coordinator for a defense and he played a part. I mean you know he had a lot of three different events of coordinators early on I mean Yeah clayborn not a bust in that same way but you know Taco we'll see if he's claimed by anybody this really obviously. I think you know a lot and I will say this tacos defense. He never stood a chance in the eyes of cowboys fans and I kind of wrote about that. When we we read about this a blog on the boys forever I mean it. You know you say forever and it's only been two years but from the moment Taco was drafted people however fairly early or unfairly compared him to teach and it did not help Tacos case that watt flourished in that he did not but people constantly constantly the constantly dumped on him with that and that sucks you know I mean that really does suck. I think you've heard Taco through different reports say that he he wants a fair chance and maybe he means something like that. I mean my my overall point is I think the guy was fighting a bit of an uphill battle from the moment the cowboys drafted him twenty eight overall especially because because they did pass on someone like Tj again but it was more than that they passed on Buddha Bakker passed on Kevin King they passed on Ryan Ramczyk and there's a lot of guys that have had success but that's the way the draft works works. I mean it. It's not a predictable thing you make your evaluation. You go with it. You draft and will mcclay is somebody that has kind of made a really good living off of doing and so won miss in a decade. I think those are pretty good odds but but yeah I mean. It is a bummer certainly to to have to move on from. I'm a first round draft pick. Just you know two years in I mean wow you know you this. That's not something the cowboys do but the thing I find particularly really amazing and we're GonNa talk about injuries and stuff kinda heading into the Miami game in a second on the other side of the break but what I find amazing. Is We know that Robert Quinn is coming back for Sunday's game against the dolphins right and there are some reports and Jason Garrett talks about this and has spoken about this so far in a press conference is for the week and he'll probably address it again on Thursday and Friday but there's a really strong possibility it seems like tyrone. Crawford would not be available for the Miami game and it's not a big deal because again it's the dolphins but all that being said I've amazing that the cowboys could conceivably conceivably be down a defensive end and they still would rather release Taco this week. You know what I mean like you. You would imagine and and they would say okay well. You know what we're going to. Have you know we're going to have to deal with Tara not being there this Sunday with the various. Let's just let's just keep talking around one more week. I think that we can play against the dolphins and they'll move on that would make sense right but not they didn't want anything to do with that. They just went ahead and cut him. Now I mean I I find that amazing. Maybe that's about given even who chance to find the new team. I don't know maybe they they would rather the snaps to someone else obviously really like Joe Jackson but you know it is what it is so let's we'll we'll continue the top talking get into the dolphins game in terms of injuries and things like that because this. Xavier Woods thing is very interesting but before we do that we'll take a very quick break to hear award from our sponsors with an epic first week of football behind us.

There was something very very interesting that came up on so most cowboys. One of the fantastic shows that the DOW DOT COM team puts together and bar. See Brand brought us. You know every week do such a great job. I am Broadus said that this was last week that there was a team who the Dallas cowboys. We're talking to when it came to Charleston. Obviously this was before they released him and he was very specific and and we even talked about it here on the Ocho we he was very specific that he wasn't going to name the team because he didn't want to kind of you know ruin the potential of of that trade kind of coming to fruition etc and so he did not name that team so everybody kind of started wonder who is it except what team could be possibly whatever thrown out all sorts of guesses lots of people suggesting the raiders because you know how Jon Gruden can be a lot of people wanted to be the Miami Dolphins because it Minka Fitzpatrick by the way a very quick sidebar on that on the Yahoo Sports. NFL podcast it came out on Wednesday and Wednesday's episode Charles Robinson specifically mentioned that the Dallas cowboys were very interested. That was the verb itchy us they were very interested in Minkah. Fitzpatrick and I have to wonder that I mean the dolphins is obviously are tanking supreme fashion. They must believe that Pittsburgh's not going to be very good with Mason Rudolph. I mean the dolphins I it must have come down into that. I mean that hey we can Pittsburgh's picks going to be higher than Yours Dallas so we're going to take that deal because that would be better but from the way that Charles spoke about you can go listen to it the sports. NFL podcast it's one of the podcasts listened to regularly I could ask that sometimes which ones I listen to. That's one of my go. To's and I thought that if you were wondering wondering the cowboys were very much in on the minkah fitzpatrick sweepstakes but anyway Brian broadest and Garcia did another almost cowboys on Wednesday that the data talk was released and we found out who the team was brought us mentioned it. It was the Houston Texans. That's right the Houston. Texans were the team that was in on top of Charlton are that the cowboys wanted to be an Taco Charleston at least and brought us mentioned that it was a player that we're looking at and one we wrote about this. It'd be a a lot of people suggested Justin read while that makes sense from cowboys angle. I mean if if you're a Dallas of course you flip Taco for Justin read it really does not make sense from Houston's angle. Just read is turned into a fine safety. I don't know why that would have happened. Maybe maybe if it really was just read. I mean it would have had to have been TACO and in a premium pig. Maybe not a first round or anything but it would not have been cheap by any means so I mean it didn't come to fruition obviously so it's ultimately mood it but interesting to note that the Houston Texas where the team interested we'll see if anybody claims Taco if not maybe he just ends up in Houston out right. Maybe he's their plan to replace clowning. I mean I duNNo. Go crazy things happen but but anyway onto Miami and injuries mentioned tarrant Crawford definitely could miss this game if that happens and I'm not worried I really am not and I know that we're all potentially overestimating or underestimating. I should say the dolphins. Maybe they're going to be better than than just absolute salou garbage but I mean the couch are GonNa win and so if you've got a risk guys I mean now is the time to do it and so especially with the New Orleans game after this but Michael Gallup had his surgery seems to be doing fine so you know he's GonNa miss a couple of weeks. I've speculated. I think it makes sense to me. Keep him out until the buy or through the by if you have to but the examiner woods thing okay exam your woods thing is very fascinating because we heard on Tuesday that exists your woods had a high ankle sprain and and you never want to hear that those are some dreaded words in football on in athletics in general and he was potentially going to miss four to six weeks by the way exceeds busy man in right now I bet because we're approaching the serious season finale of big brother you know big times but anyway Jason Garrett was obviously asked about all the injury news and discussion during this press conference on Wednesday and he actually said well. You know I mean He. He might do some stuff in practice at this. You know we'll see what what he might do stuff in practice. What how. How is that possible because we just? We were told that he'd be out four to six weeks. How is he gonNa do something in practice today. which was yesterday if you listen to this on Thursday but so you know there was a report as soon as the exterior was stuff? I came out on Tuesday. The Dallas Morning News I know reported that you know this might not be that serious. After all the cowboys were really optimistic that it wasn't afforded sickening go to go back to Wednesday's episode of almost cowboys beyond giving the Houston Texans bit brought us also mentioned that exude. You're locked not fine. I Yeah I don't want to put words in his mouth or mischaracterize what he said but that you know Brian brought us his words and again brought us the great mentioned that exhibit might only miss a game even tweeted about at that later on Wednesday night so you know if you were concerned about the Xavier Woods thing. I don't think there really is that reason to be all that. You know riled up about it because it definitely definitely does not sound like it's going to be a forty six ping. Maybe it's longer than a week. Maybe he misses both the dolphins and Saint Scans but maybe he's back for Green Bay after that October six and if that's that's the case. I think you avoided something pretty nasty. If that truly is the case if you're woods back the Green Bay game. Let's let's go ahead and toss these two weeks out. Let's say he misses the dolphins and Saints Games so that means you get Xavier Woods back for the packers game for the jets game and for the Eagles game that Eagles game is going to be critical okay yeah. I think we all agree that eagles game could go a long way and the packers went to. I know something my dad mentioned that those games go a long way in determining playoff seeding in determining terminate home field advantage. I mean you just never know those. The packers right now are two in L. as we speak the one. We'll see what happens over the course of the next two weeks to four weeks before we get to both those it's games but if exhibitors back. I think you gotTa feel really good about your chances. If you're the cowboys because you have sort of play making players certainly on defense on your whole tune in general back in full so again right now from an injury perspective. I know it feels like a big week because we got the Michael Gallup News and then the everything happen and now town on crossing and what's going on with Antoine Woods and take on us and is still in concussion protocol. How's that you know even possible. Jason Garrett did say that he's improving at least but overall. I think things are are relatively fine. I mean if you want some perspective on how bad injuries can be go. Go look at the Philadelphia Eagles Injury report from Wednesday because it was literally like a twenty five percent of their team. I mean it is bad. We're only three three the NFL. We say all the time is a battle of attrition. You have to survive almost as much as you have to succeed and so the cowboys you know football's a tough game. They're dealing dealing with some injuries but it is certainly great news to see that Xavier Woods might be back sooner rather than later. you know that that is good news. Good news is good. I think we all appreciate good news but yeah. I mean it. It feels like things are trending in the right direction for this game. It's a new game. Those are always great because you get a chance to watch it and then show for the rest of the afternoon enjoy Sunday night football so this is this feels like feels like we kind of just know how this is going to go right. I was going to beat the dolphins and I mentioned this. I do some radio hits on Wednesdays and I was asked Uh on both shows. What do I wanna see from the cowboys and I think this is a good question to kind of wrap this conversation up with I say this all the time to good teams. beat the crap crap at a bad teams right like if you're if you're an average team then maybe you'll come out you'll beat the dolphins like seventeen to six right. We're all believers. The Dallas cowboys are not an average team. Good teams beat the crap out of bad teams and you look at the New England. Patriots did do the dolphins. It'd been forty three to nothing. I mean you know so what I wanna see from the cowboys on Sunday. I WanNa see them beat the crap out of the dolphins and I will say it's a little bit different because Jason Garrett as we mentioned is less prone to that like he's not somebody who's GonNa be blitzing when he's up by thirty or whatever that's just not the Jason Garrett way but I do think an anticipate zipping that we'll see maybe at twenty five to thirty point victory. I know that would cover the line. That's out right now. I would not take that personally. I'm not that brave but maybe you are so overall as we sit here on Thursday. I think things are GonNa wa. I think there's reason to smile. I think there's reason to be happy and I think there's reason to enjoy the last couple of days before we ultimately do hit the weekend.
