Salem SVP Phil Boyce: Salem Produced '2000 Mules' Because Hollywood Wouldn't
"We should acknowledge the 800 pound elephant in the room here. The reason we're the exact we've executive produced it and we're putting it on the platform that we have is because movie theaters by and large, Hollywood, the beast as I call it the machine, the mainstream media, they don't want to touch this thing with a ten foot pole. They don't want the American public to know what they did. And they never thought the American public would know what they did. They never thought anybody would produce a documentary exposing what they did. So yes, we have to see the movie. We have to here's the thing. We're not going to go Biden out of office. I don't think ever. The voters might be able to do that. But we do want to make sure that the next election is not capable of seeing this kind of fraud. So it was a couple of months ago that Chuck Schumer passed a bill in the Senate or tried to pass a bill in the Senate to turn the elections over to the feds. Why? So they could control them and they could pull this stunt again. Fortunately, it voted down 52 to 48 because Manchin and sinema voted with the Republicans. But that's how close it was to letting them do it again. We can not let them do it again because if we do, there'll be no Republican ever elected again.
Joy Reid Resorts to Calling Elon Musk Racist
"Check out joy Reid. The thing is the only enjoyment they get out of being in this town square is being able to harass people, being able to attack people. There was a time when people had the double hashtags around their names because they were Jewish and right wingers were saying get in the oven anytime you made any benign comment on Twitter. They attacked women. The misogyny was crazy on Twitter for a while. Elon Musk, I guess he, you know, he misses the old South Africa in the 80s. He wants that back. Elon Musk misses the old South Africa from the 80s. He's pro apartheid right joy. He's a racist. That's all they got. It's all they got. And the irony of that bitter vicious, nasty, vitriolic woman. Claiming that conservatives want Twitter so we can attack people, she is the pit bulldog of MSNBC.

Have We Been Overly Worried About the Russians? Robert Wilkie Explains
"Have we been overly worried about the bear? Well, we have done this traditionally. I mean, we made them out to be ten foot tall. And they're not in the British MOD confirms that. They've been reporting to parliament that Russian tankers are just getting out and walking away. Leaving their vehicles. This is stunning. Actually leaving their vehicles for the Ukrainians to pick up. So what you're describing is the incompetence of the Russian force. The United States Great Britain and France and Canada and Australia. And the Israelis. Practice combined arms operation. You just don't, you just don't train with infantry. You train with artillery, you train with air. And you combine those assets. I mean, an American approach to this would have been to destroy every anti aircraft system. Every airfield. Before the first before the first tank, let's go back to gulf one. So golf one, we had a couple of days of bombing that incapacitated the Iraqi military. And then 99 days. Before the combat troops deployed, we had 90 let's go back in time. I remember I was watching it on CNN. 99 days of utter air supremacy before we rolled the tanks, which meant once they rolled, it was, it was what it was like a two day war. But you know, this is not new for the Russian slash Soviets. I mean, there's a great Eisenhower story. He's engaged in small talk with Marshall zhukov. At the Berlin victory parade, and Eisenhower was trying to get from him, how did you get through those minefields? Minefields that were miles and depths. Yes. So quickly.

Performance Coach Daniel Back on Advancing Methods in Jump Training for Athletes
"For young athletes who are wanting to jump to get sports like volleyball right. That's jumped base. But what do you think about the me. This is off the rails bit about the plan questions but something like that for young athletes like. There's obviously the training right but like something like lower dogs or a sport the way you make it a sport. What are your thoughts on that. I love it. And i do think there is a superiority. There compared to yet destroying touch the ram touched the backboard one. Just because it's more fun to to have success in the training right but then also there's this this component of it's not like a workout right. Where it's i've i've had this run. Training athletes honored kind of look at everything they're doing. I think they should get some junk reps in in going up hitting the vertex is just not as fun as dunking. you know. it's not. And i think just having that bond even that kind of creative like ideas based like oh this or i'm gonna i'm gonna try to don't one leg or whatever like having that kind of fun created environment. Deathly makes a difference for yet. Just motor learning side of things in the motivation side of things. Like yeah definitely like in the one on one training transacts like view just talent someone to go hit the vertex. Let's like let's say ten foot for ten times you know just not. This is not as good so. Yeah i definitely love the low rim dunking approach. Yeah even four people not small players. Yes i agree i. I was watching my some neighbor kids in the backyard. They have an adjustable hoop and they put it down like you know. These kids are like ten and eleven. They put it down to like. I don't know five six feet and they're trying to dump it out just thinking to myself. This is where it all starts. Non-judgmental it's and i think about the non-judgmental too. I mean i. I beat myself up. Training for years in the sense like l. ahead was the rim it's like am i getting higher on the rim. Am i not a good day. Was this a bad day. Even back when i was sixteen or seventeen and able to start dunking and things. That would be like you walk in the gym jimmy. You're not feeling it's like. Aw man but if you can have a rim and it's eight and you can just try to do something new or something. Then it's fun again. And it's i think for developmental as makes so much sense
Keeping Kids Safe Around Water this Summer
"After you've had this experience what do you wish you would have done differently. I think leads really well into our second takeaway here. That was a great question in. You're exactly right so easy to just say. Oh well i was watch my kids. I mean i was on the couch. Though he was sitting on the couch. You know ten feet away from me. The room was filled with people young. Since read this line that everybody is watching the pool. The nobody's watching the pool and is usually the settings when it happens from there is a big people when we were just sort of all busy like just cleaning up in things in and it was so fast but the second takeaway. But i wish we'd really known with levi that we should have had layers of protection in place since toddlers most often drown when they aren't expected water. Those layers are so important looking back. There were so many things that we should have done differently. It was really hate to call it because there's nothing perfect about it but the perfect storm in a sense. The first layer of protection supervision. We weren't supervising and we were all in the room tons of supervision. Too much supervision. I guess really so but that layer failed. We did not see him. Slip out that back door. The door could have been dead bolted. It wasn't could have been door alarm but again we were on vacation. These more things that that we had now. Of course i could have even ordered portable amazon. Fifteen dollars brought them with could have asked my husband go sit on the balcony it till we go crap hunting. We didn't even realize. We thought kids john when they were swimming so it wasn't like something that was like really on our radar and going back to the supervision. Bet so what you're saying there is when there's all the adults watching. None of the adults are watching right. So when you're swimming when you're around water you need to have one adult that is in charge of watching one child or designated the toddler because otherwise you think everybody's watching the children s. This cannot be emphasized enough during the transition tons. I'm not even talking about when you're swimming. It is when you go inside to eat lunch. It is when you go inside for the birthday party to open the presence. It is when you're packing up the car. When the cookout is over and the two year old one all stories these are all the parents i know are the stories it. You're packing up. The car from the fourth of july cookout and the three year olds somehow makes her way back to the pool from the front yard where you thought they were helping. Load the stuff in the car. This is when it is happening

The Shocking Day I Flashed a Crowd of Churchgoers
"Our story. This week is from sarah. Paris who you'll find on medium dot com and here is the shocking day. I flashed a crowd of churchgoers. And this isn't even my most embarassing moment. How did i find myself soaking wet and naked from the waist down in front of a church crowd. Did i traumatized scores of little kids. In grandma's it's a long story and yes most likely here's my tale of woe. Thunder roared through a heavy sky. I sped down winding country lanes panicked. We wouldn't arrive on time. My friend grace and i were running late to church and she barked our countdown time from the passenger seat. Five minutes dude. We're still a few miles away. She screamed god. Still hasn't given me the stop time. Talent i'm going as fast as i can. It was the july after college graduation. My college roommates and i had decided to share one less carefree summer together. We played all summer each of us working part time and in vain clinging to the last vestiges of young adulthood. They were all three weeks away from heading out for various graduate schools. I was leaving to spend a year in. Amsterdam are worry free. Summer was spent embarking on adventures playing at the beach and sleeping in until noon. We talked about church but so far had bailed every week grace and i were the only ones going. We're both lazy on sunday morning. But we'd commit it. The church was thirteen miles away from our summer house and the last service began at eleven. Am we didn't walk out the door until ten forty five am. The sky wept as i pulled into the crowded parking lot at ten fifty nine. We laughed about our mature adult like behavior and found a parking spot. In another state. I realized distance from parking space to church was easily a thousand miles. The rain was blinding. And we didn't have an umbrella between us. Let's just blow it off this week. I suggested but i knew we couldn't. We dressed up for god after all we gathered our things made makeshift head coverings out of our jackets and sprinted from the car in one hand. I clutched both my jacket. And my giant norma's keychain my bible and purse were death gripped in the other hand. Grace only carried her jacket. At least seventeen feet of rain had fallen in the time. It took me to park. Grace i mustered our courage and ran at the same time. We were about ten feet away from the swarm. Faithful and responsible umbrella owning congregants who are reaching the churches front door. We swam to join the crowd. My soaked clothes weighing an extra hundred pounds and stuck to my buddy beamed with my love for god as i faced a possible drowning. Death for him are tears of laughter mixed with the rain and i could barely see. Suddenly i noticed that my wrap around skirt felt a bit loose and then gray shrieked with a new menacing laughter. She was pointing at me and covering her mouth. A cool breeze roared my backside before i realized what had happened. My hipster rap around pencil skirt was down around my ankles. My bright pink bikini. Briefs were on display for all of god's people and we were still thirty people back from entering the church. Foyer i exclaimed oh my grace help me. Grace replied is only close. Friends can way she said. Between bursts of giggles she turned to the family behind. Me over. ear is no one should have to see this. I had nowhere to put my belongings and struggled to pull up my skirt. please help grace. I pleaded. I need to savor this moment. I wondered if she was possessed by now. Most of the people surrounding us striptease a nervous. Dad laughed a grandmother. Told me i should feel ashamed of myself. And a mother with her two young sons. Put her hands over. There is finally graced. Took my stuff allowed me to pull up my sopping dirty skirt sitting through the service friend. She smiled. I narrowed my eyes and shot lasers at her. We walked into the back of the crowded service and those in the rows ahead of us turned and stared. I heard two women behind us. Whisper to each other. What is wrong with that girl. I prayed for a dark cave to crawl into. The god doesn't always answer prayers. In the ways we desire the judgment of stranger sent ways of heat through my otherwise shivering body. You can stay. Told grace. But i'm going. We snuck out and trudged back to the car. I can't wait to tell everyone. My compassionate friend said when my mortification wore off. I only regretted that i hadn't shouted. You're welcome on my way out of the service. A few years later grace introduced me to her fiancee's hunter sarah the skirt list wonder. I've heard all about you. He laughed and clapped. My back. neat responded to this day. I still have a hard time making eye contact with hunter again. My church strip-tease barely cracks my top five embarrassing moments so whenever you dur public humiliation i hope you'll recall my pink bikini briefs and i hope you'll realize that you're not alone.

We're not real sure We did send out a message to him letting them know that the show is about to start so he may come on after a while Or he may still be tied up doing a other crazy studying that he's got going on on some different topics. Ooh yeah so. We don't know for sure if he's going to show up so We've got an interesting topic. That rick came up with tonight which deals with angels and demons so rick quantity start us off with what you want us to talk about. Eddie how he. How are you tonight my man. I heard you had a pretty busy day in. And you got drug through the past year and over the hills dales and things my god i was dealing with horses and introducing a new horse and that was fun Got drug all over the place and it was i you know. There's no way i. I was about to overpower this guy. But yeah he took me for a little ride. And i don't mean a right while i was sitting on them. I mean a ride. All hanging onto a lead as he dragged me across the yard and trying to get it the other horse so that was fun and interesting in a realized at that point in time that he was not he was not cut he was were in good shape and hanging there. I mean it was. So i asked my god i have taken. Some aleve and i'm sitting here is extremely sore and drinking a diet coke trying to recuperate. I guess you could say because. I feel like i've been rode hard. Put up with so. Yeah yeah hey sony. Doing my day was not as as fantastic as yours. It was eventful but not. Yeah yeah i. I'm pretty well. Out of the old west this indian has hung up his Bareback waste well. My bareback ways Led me through all kinds of interesting brush and shrubbery and That ten foot lead. I had was not long enough. I can tell you that long. Yeah but i was just trying to stay out of stay out of reach of his back legs and hooves and That was pretty much. All i can do and just kind of go skiing i come up. I come up with tonight's subject tonight Because we're in the middle well not in the middle. We are at the beginning of a very interesting case. And it has to be dealing with the person that is dealing with maybe a demonte kennedy or it may be We don't know what it is right now but it is. It may be just an oppression. We don't know but what got me on. This subject was the fact that this individual was very religious. I mean she's been in. She's eighty nine years old. Eddie wow and has been in religion for all of her life basically and as she talked an as. She told me about her experiences in the church she was talking about the angels and the demons about what they were taught and what angels meant her and want the dark side as far as anything like that meant to her. And it it really. It really hit home with me. Because i can see the sincerity in her heart. I could see sincerity in her eyes. Because she's having to deal with this and as we sit there and talked and everything. I thought too while this is so pertinent of an ideal and a topic in today's world because it says i picked up some information from dr robert jeffress and he's a phd scholar dealing and the theologian the questions and theology. And everything else like that. He says it's a tragic mistake to assume because something is not visible it is not real very true and that really hit me hard when i read that and it just really hit me because we are i mean he gives he is an analogy of like you know consider electricity. Okay it's invisible but stick your finger in the socket and you'll quickly discover the reality of electricity absolutely and so it is and so it is with the angels and demons. We live in a spiritual world. Eddie i know that our show. Paranormal electrical is is all about that. But i know that we get caught up sometimes in the semantics and the analytical part of what we're doing and everything and it really through curb ball at me eddie. When we started talking about her belief and some of her friends belief in angels and demons and i heard both sides. I'm hearing both sides next to be go over again and talk with her again. And do i'm gonna do some. Edp work and things like that. But you know. I got to studying about this and i thought what an interesting topic because maybe there's a lot of people out there that have had experience with angels and demons and the difference between the two is like night and day
Walmart's use of TikTok will likely continue, even if deal with Oracle falls apart
"Well. I'm sure glad we wasted all of our time worrying about this a few months ago. Sources are saying that the trump administration plan to force the sale of tiktok to a group including oracle and walmart has been shelved indefinitely quoting the wall street journal. Discussions have continued between representatives of bytedance and us national security officials. The people said those discussions have centred on data security and ways to prevent the information tiktok collects on american users from being accessed by the chinese government. They said but no imminent decision on how to resolve the issues. Surrounding tiktok is expected as the biden administration determines its own response to the potential security risks posed by chinese tech companies collection of data quote. We plan to develop a comprehensive approach to securing. Us data that addresses the full range of threats. We face national. Security council spokeswoman. Emily this includes the risk posed by chinese apps and other software that operate in the us in the coming months we expect to review specific cases in light of ak- prehensile understanding of the risks. We face and quote so that definitely sounds like they're kind of sweeping under the rug. What i can't figure out from this whole mess is was it always kabuki theatre at least for the smart money like did everyone that mattered know that this was just gonna blow over eventually anyway and that's why you didn't see big players wanting to touch it with a ten foot pole. They basically just let the unlikely rubes of oracle and walmart. Step up to play the mark until the jig was up. It certainly seems like that was the case now. In retrospect

Think some people find it interesting to see old stuff. Yeah. Totally like a museum slash fundraiser. There you go. Poll Rolling IT GETS TEN FOOT POLE DOT COM okay. Yeah get some unique swag. You know some unique a ten foot pole history. That's awesome. Yeah I think that's how the music business has gone like the music is out there kind of easy to get now for anybody in quick download and everything but the but the things that people really get interested in or the collectibles, and so that's why you see like vinyl. We've got so many different colors and things because some people want to be the only one who has all these colors and you know there's there's like a a UK distributor that has a special vinyl variant and. The Belgium that does and. So? I think that sort of thing there's basically fewer people buying music these days but the people who are buying like really interested in getting something unique. So I'm hoping no one by my old shirts and guitars. Yeah. All I'm I'm almost positive someone will. I don't see why they wouldn't die hard fans for sure are there's also there are physical copies of simmer down available as well. Right? Oh. Yeah Yeah. If you go to ten foot pole dot com, it's it's all they're like they're skateboard decks as well as December down right now we're calling pre orders but I think as of today, it's like just four days away. So the full release should be out. So it should be available. It was kind of you know it's painful like the amount of time it takes. To be manufactured, right I think I think I proved the mastering of simmer down July fifth and then October ninth was basically the date we decided was the safe date so that people preordered it we would have vinyl by October ninth for sure..

"So for better or worse we we we made the switch and there's a lot more details involved. But over the end of the day, you know at the end of the day, we lost a good chunk of our audience just because like any band that changes a singer, you know there was a camp that's just like you know then the red album was so loved in and you know so people really newest for that record and and you know maybe half our audience was excited and then from then on, we built new audience from people who liked the new records and So I kinda. Still I still felt like there were some people that left that Maybe, didn't know that I was the songwriter too and that that you know they might have thought that with him leading kind of lost the that element of it. So I I try to emphasize that to that. You know if you liked the song old man, that is my song and all the songs that ten foot pole does for the most part almost all of our our my songs and it's it's only natural for me to sing it but still every once in a while someone says some kind of review that hurts my feelings. One on escalating quickly like this is like twenty five years later, whatever said something like this is like a karaoke singer seeing ten foot pole. and. One that was twenty five years ago and to know Karaoke singer like. my song. I wrote it. Yeah. It's natural that sing it. It's more like Edna, swab singing. The Natalie. IMBRUGLIA song. What's Torn Oh yes. Yes. That huge hit song torn. A lot of people didn't know that it was. That it was an edna swap song. Raynham. So. Regardless I I I just keep going and some people like it, and some people don't I just feel like if I just keep writing new staff and try to make it interesting that that there will be You know people who like it will gravitate toward it, and at this point, it's really more just about getting people to to listen like. Especially, like simmer down like I feel like it's I feel like it's a quality product. But how do you get people to listen to your music? There's literally millions of bands out there. So Well Luckily Luckily you Kinda have that. Of of having those those routes, you know way back when and the skate punk scene and I think that'll only not only help you out even though this is an acoustic record and I think this record is really well done. I was really impressed with the production and everything it's. It's got a nice. Not overly polished sound to it. It's still has some of the you know that rawness in it, but it's also is just all around pleasing to the ears least I found any way account as kind of satisfies if if you're wanting to listen to something punk, but you're also wanting to listen to something a little easier on the ears you know. It's kind of a nice hybrid of of both of those things. Glad you like it I. I think like my acoustic show is a lot more raw is alive and was a lot more like fast. But then I found once I started doing demos and stuff I found that when I really played it aggressively the way I do live it's fun to have that live energy. But for the Sonics Edit like an acoustic guitar generally just doesn't sound good if you bash it like if you're really. There's a lot of string noise and and you know things get out pitch and it. It's just not pleasing to the ear and so even though..

"Skate punk that evolved in the nineties was Kinda directly down the path of where we were like scared straight started out in Seamy valley in we were We were invited to be on hardcore record, which was an Oxford core of on mystic records. They get a compilation of oxnard banks that really it was kind of Ventura. County in and because we were friends and head toward and done backyard parties advance ill repute in. Played the bands were considered part of that scene were like aggression and Dr no and Stolac Thirteen and and they were all pretty melodic a false confessions that they were all singing. It wasn't it wasn't screaming and so. The nineties punk that followed that I think was it basically was just a little more melodic, a little more musical faster more technical drums for the most part but I don't think it was a radical departure like for for us between scared straight and ten foot pole was literally just a name change it wasn't. It wasn't any kind of conscious music change at all like the swill album that we did was just. It was just kind of on the cusp of were that music evolution was going. Now I think it's pretty gradual. My opinion the reason we changed the name. was that scared straight In the eighty s had been on mystic records and mystic head was kind of famous for doing Kinda shady stuff They. We made a record are only full album I didn't think was ever done I went and recorded it for a couple of days and I thought they were just scratched guitar tracks and I. Thought Scott had done scratch vocal tracks and And then I didn't hear anything and also I was in a music store in Berkeley. And I saw scared straight you drink you drive you die and I was like well, that's Kinda. Terrible people stole our band name and then I looked like Scott. Radinsky.

"Box. Talk about the inspiration about for your recipes. So are like are they. Turkey inspired or also talk about like. What's the blight is creating something from nothing like a whole new recipe for a brand so? I also are Tennessee. Whiskey is definitely inspired by my time at while Turkey it's a very similar mash bill And then the reason I used that for my vodka was simply because I already had three whiskeys mash bills to juggle a really didn't need a fourth one in so that one and we experiment. We tasted made sure that actually worked. But that's where that thought process even start. It was just. I don't need another Nashville. So let's hope that this one working. Fortunately it did testing on the still out there or did you have. That was yeah. No that was. My trial was the system out there so it was very big trial. Could not sleep at night. It was awful panicking. Well we thought we had it and my boss was panicking because you know this is his baby. It's his legacy and so there's no need to try a different Nashville. So we went and did something completely different and put them side by side and the Tennessee whiskey Mash Bill. Wyman that man. I ended up with fifty gallons of one hundred ninety two proof vodka that I couldn't use anything in. I mean you can use it in clean something. Well you probably cleaned still was it. We actually decided to put it in barrels which Vaca has flavor so. It really didn't do a whole lot. But it gave us an opportunity to experiment with it and so one of them. We actually put coffee beans in the barrel and it turned out beautifully so we actually released a one off. It's a lot easier to those one offs when you have a meteorological we can do it. This one. This time. Nothing ever goes the waste. No it doesn't you have to be able to get your money back somehow. And so we were able to salvage. You don't want to call it a mistake because it wasn't we intentionally made that vodka but we couldn't release it as a Barca we had So it was just trying to to save it and it gave me a chance to have a little bit of fun be creative and do something unique and so you know it's like change your mentality or mindset coming from somewhere like target like don't don't mess it up till like we're going to hurt me. This is plagiarized. It definitely is more fun Knowing that there's a little bit more wiggle room. You know inconsistencies. When you're this small can actually be a good thing In so yeah anytime we did. Have you know something happened? That ended up meaning that the mash wasn't exactly like it was supposed to be. We've been able to make the most of it and and just come up with something unique in spinoff In the different product called absolutely. So I'M GONNA lift the Bourbon up next kind of go to that so kind of again. Run US through the Bourbon here You know if you WANNA share the match bill. If you can't share them Nashville I mean Lord knows there's so many people out there that are like oh. We don't share a mash bill even though it's so weird because you can tell them. Nashville and it's just like if you make it at one distillery. It's then you make the same exact match another silly it's GonNa be too. I mean it doesn't really matter at the other day so this is our healing station. Bourbon and it is a high-rise Bourbon. So it's fifty two percent corn. That's how it's high and forty four percent rye as a high. That's a high high right. And it's I love Rye whisky. So that's why I love this Mash Bells. It's kind of a happy balance. The spiciness character to we do violet at one hundred proof as well. Well well done and this one cinnamon I'm big fan of this big fan of the right here so this is actually the base of the taty too so we use this exact same liquid in the Taty Currently what's in? That bottle is actually produced in Indiana So as I said earlier on they knew we wanted the taty. I opened while that required a two year old minimum two year old Bourbon. We weren't ready. We didn't have this building ready to go inside. They took our recipe are yeast barrels and went up to Indiana in. It's when they were still doing custom mash bills as time and had them make a couple rounds of of Bourbon for us and then it was aging so well this is five and a half years old. At this point who's aging while that we decided to use some of it as just a bourbon and not just for the taty while CEOS like this this does not taste like it would be like a two or three year old. I mean this is fantastic. That's yeah that's the five and a half years at this point. Yeah absolutely I mean it. Kind of gives a lot of those flavors. It's like What's that one candy that you always talk about? How Tamale? Oh yes I can get that on like red hots a little bit too Some of that. So it's fantastic. Yeah it's got a great viscosity to for Jews. Even five years old a lot of depth and a love the spice. Oh it's like it sticks with you. It has very good In so at this point you know you're all are producing a lot more of your own. Bourbon now correct. Yes yes we produce three different MASH BILLS. That are all currently aging. Leave our Tennessee. Whiskey which is seventy percent corn thirteen Ri- until percent malted barley and the oldest of. That actually just turned three. The beginning of twenty twenty And then the next one on that is also a high rise Bourbon so it's fifty two corn forty four percent rye and then we also have a wheat whiskey which is eighty three percent wheat with want to go with a wheat. Whiskey. Because I'm I'm a fan of like Bernheim right. I actually like Bernheim wheat whiskey. But you don't see a whole lot of offerings on the market today so kind of talking about your exactly why we want tell you workout and not everyone likes a high bourbon. Sometimes that's too hot for somebody to spicy can be a really nice intro to the category and a plenty of people who say they don't like whiskey and it's largely because they just end up getting started with something that super bowl super strong and so just kinda punches him in the face whereas if you can have a wheat whiskey it can maybe help introduce them to it or approachable exactly. It's a little more delicate like any delicate up. Oh Gosh we're GONNA come back from that one now. Talk about the barrels. So like did you have say so. Unlike what charge you on. What kind of you know Dan Fortunately we kind of our agreement anyway. They they kinda when I started wanted to do a number four char. That's my favorite char. So there was no disagreement on that But one thing they did want to do is our Parent company had some Timberland in West Tennessee and had a lot of white oak on that property. And so the first. African. How many barrels saying was close thousand barrels worth actually came from Canal property? Well that's pretty cool in so the call staves. Actually we use all the stage. CaN'T USE FOR BARRELS. We actually re purposed and we've Half tasting staves where we put the glasses. Those are from canal property. Our elevator is wrapped in those bad staves. So how does that work? Do you like sweet. I mean they're taking the would they didn't obviously probably had a coup bridge is their cooper that will be like rule except your wood and they do okay. I didn't know that now I did. You know that won't do now. Yeah get mad at me for telling people they can do more business. You really think they're doing lumberjacks out there. We'll go ahead and chop down. Trees lugging back to Missouri River. GonNa you're gonNA AGEM IT so they asked. That was coal We now just make sure that our would does come from West Tennessee so we do. WanNa trying keep regional. What's the what's the idea of trying to keep it? Regional is a just pride. Is it like do you really think there's a flavor to it like what let's see? Somebody definitely is pride for just really proud to be. You know West Tennessee. That's Kentucky Kinda now. I'll and a few years pride because the Tennessee whiskey trail. We're the only distillery on the west region in so we WANNA play up the West Tennessee part of our brand. Because it's it's very legitimate and we're the only ones But also the whole terror wire par. You know we've had distilleries experiments with trees and does it really affect the the flavor in the end and had absolutely does and so by lease guaranteeing that's coming from the same region where hopefully getting a more consistent barrel I mean? Do you think you find that it's going to be consistently harder to do that as a scale comes where you're like okay. There's only so much land that we can. We can take trees from a little nervous about it. I really am especially think about the way. The State of Tennessee is. There's not a whole lot further west than us or sure it your yes so I'm a little nervous Texas if not. It's thirty minutes back to Arkansas. Like the water. You gotTa keep going there a couple of exits. I think a lot exit one. We've done it before we were actually coming to Memphis and we missed the exit one and we drove him over the bridge. And we're like on Shirley it's gotTA in Mississippi. Big Horrors Like Sixteen. Not Submissive Sixty miles. But it's like you gotta drive like sixteen miles across and then make your way back. You're like don't make that mistake again. Yes yes always get off exit one and then you know you're daydreaming when when you come to exit one makes you. Google maps is on like the loudest setting possible. Then you'd never you're never gonNA miss it. It's so another question that I always had in Mexico. We talked about it a little bit when we were doing the tour. But I said let's say for the podcast talk about the rooster. Yes so we have a thirteen foot. Tall Rooster on our array of So back to that Dominic taty bottle though we talked about on that original label there are two little chickens on it and I don't think anyone really paid any attention to the chickens until someone was who didn't even work for the company saw the bottle and pointed at the chickens and said those are dominic or roosters in everyone in the room. Just kind of had this moment of. Oh My Gosh. Dominic Dominic or chickens holy. Crap this is. This is why they're on the bottle So they decided that needed to be a brand element going forward and we had a couple of different Iterations of the rooster and how much we were going to use them. Even when I came on board we had you know. Were playing with the idea of making sure super prominent on the back about all There was some back and forth on whether or not they wanted to continue to do that. And US. Girls fought for it Because we thought the rooster was a fantastic thing to include in the brand in so we incorporate him in pretty much every aspect rebounds roaming around. Do you ever rooster around here here. Early conversations about wanting to put a chicken coop on a rooftop patio. That'd be cool when fresh eggs when I pointed out then that they would have to take care of the roosters. They're like no yes. Yes can take themselves rooster. Grew a little bit different. I've been to key west. They take care of themselves. Pretty well down there but I tell you what six. Am comes off early after night on Duval Street. Orr's neighbors like the roosters fair point. See I would think that that meeting room and somebody says like Oh these are the dominant roosters or whatever I'd be looking over like how do you know this like he was a country? Boy was a country. Boy It was a farmer and so he knew what they were And it turns out that they are. I believe they're the oldest breed of chicken in America in so it kind of made sense that you know you'd see him on things from before prohibition and like I said we kind of fell in love with him and he's named Niko now he does have Nico after Dominico. Oh and so yeah. We incorporated him on everything. If you look at the honey bo-bottle he's actually got his claw on honey bell fruit and then for our Gen. We decided to swap out the shot glass for Martini. Okay actually before we get to the last one..
"ten feet" Discussed on Bourbon Pursuit
"And so when I joined the team said that's the you know we're GonNa make that until Iraq said absolutely and so they were actually still developing it so actually got to be a part of the development of that product. I didn't come up with the initial thought but I I got to where it is today. Marcia just picked up and yes smelling it. I'm smelling it and yeah you can. You can make the second one yes is. It's pretty hard to miss it. I it's definitely an is. You're using all natural fruits and everything inside of it so we actually ended up having to go with natural extracts so in developing it we were using the real fruit but when we did the math to scale it up to full production we realized we needed about twenty tonnes. Oh it's a lot of appeal. Not even the the meat. We just needed the peel. And it just was wasteful. It wasn't practical so we kind of had to alter our pass on that one. Yeah that's a tough one for. It'll get madame dangerously delicious. It's really good vodka. The vodka pursue coming coming coming in okay so so you had the idea of doing the vision so I guess we're we're already kind of like jumping ahead here a little bit so the the phone call comes you take it. You have it. I'm to swimming like offer letter rolls in and your next step was to Memphis. The team see their the building because they did at least owned the building. Nothing was in it But they wanted to make sure that I fit with on the team in so came down and actually timed it with The International Barbecue Festival. Not a bad time to be here not at all. It was my first time in Memphis ever and so to get to see it at such a fun time in my first night Memphis. They actually took me down to the festival and so I got to experience that. And if you've never seen it you've gotta come down for it it's insane But then I they actually also got me tickets to a grizzlies game too. And it was a playoff game so they made sure I got experienced at its best. Maybe a night on Beale street as well. There's a little bit of that and a little bit of. Yeah it's always palm building all really always end up their roots into feels street awesome so then you fell in love with the city in figuring it. Okay well time to turn in my Blueblood card here and actually become a Tennessee's so how how. How did that transition go? I mean what's your family? Say Today? Excommunicate you my brother was furious because he had just moved back to Lexington a year before we moved so he was so mad that I was leaving But other than that they my parents who do this is what I want to do. You know I think they would have liked to have seen me staying Kentucky new that opportunities there were a lot lot slimmer than elsewhere so I think they always knew I was going to moving away. Well six hours apart. I mean it's really not bad. I mean we did it this morning together for him. You do that. You know you let your driver take care of it. I take a nap and then for you know it and you wake up in your there there as long as I don't wear orange my family's okay. Oh I think I can wear blue here and be okay sneaky solid. I don't say coach Cal Right now and also showed up. We still love our Tennessee. Volunteers that are out there that our listeners so absolutely no no no hatred on that and okay so let's let's go ahead and shoot up a little bit here so now you are. You're into the role and kind of talk about the whole process. Because I know that we had kind of talked about the very beginning of maybe the family wanted to. Just start sourcing first. And then bottling and then it Kinda snowballed kind of talk about that and then also kind of within the family history of like what they wanted to do too. Yes Oh back in. I think it's twenty thirteen when the idea of bringing back dominic kind start it and originally. They really did think. Oh we'll just by h product and we'll just bottle which is exactly what our founder did before prohibition yeah what was the original Dominic I guess what was their business model like so our parent company Deacon Alley and company was founded in eighteen sixty six and shortly thereafter? They added a whiskey line to it so they had fruit distribution they had beer distribution and then also some whiskey and they would just source barrels. We have Letters that show that they bought from Cincinnati. Ohio and Indiana and Kentucky in would bring it down and just down. The street from the distillery is where their facility was and they would just ball it under the dominant brand name In also firmed the records. We see that they actually bottled Under under a couple of different labels and then also distribute it other brands In the state of Tennessee as well so the distributor the they did a lot. I know one thing that you had mentioned is that he kinda liked copied a model from his parents or something like that where like fruit distribution is at was a domino Nico. When I moved to Memphis actually worked for his uncle who had a fruit business and then a couple years later is when he decided to start his own business. Doing very similar things. Fruit must be hot right. It must be hot. That if you gotta be you gotta gotta satisfy the quench for fruit. Well in the late eighteen hundreds and I'm sure they weren't growing honey for or whether distributed somehow probably didn't have ways of keep it fresh for a year either right. It's one of those things it's like. It's like bananas. You get them in their bad in a week and can get. They've gotTA figure out a way to make bananas last longer by now. Just don't buy as many maybe that so I that's true so what happened to the ultimately happened to the business. Why did it today? prohibition pit in Sao like every you know most brands they had to stop production and stop selling. Fortunately Deacon Alien Company continued it's been in continuous opera sense so they were civil to continue the beer later on they were able to continue the fruits But our founder passed away before prohibition ended in so unfortunately when it was repealed. There really wasn't anyone who is super interested in bringing it back And so the business continued on and they had an Anheuser Busch distributorship here in Memphis is one of the biggest ones in the region. They had a food. Division is well both of those got sold off by two thousand ten in so in two thousand thirteen. Our President Chris Junior found a bottle of dominic taty was a product that was part of the original portfolio and it was still full instill wax sealed and a light bulb. Went off of. This is how we get back to Memphis. This is. This is what I'm GONNA do. Where was the family at at the time so the office is still located in downtown Memphis Day just at that point had business ventures outside of the city and investments outside of the city? And so he wanted to get back into his hometown and have an active business in the city. And so he decided to bring dominic back and the Dominic Taty is what started it. All decided crack that bottle open and have Juice analyzed out in California and we took that analysis and created our Memphis taty. So why why the name Taty do do you know like we're originally. Oh I know what Taty is but you know this is this is a this is a full bottle. It's not just like you know it's mixed with like you know honey and tea like RTD's before it's Day ready to tells you this because actually all the ads for Dominic. Taty said just serve over cracked ice so they didn't even necessarily is once you exactly unfortunately no records as to what was in the toddy. We have no idea why he actually called a toddy for the time and by to pay cash to we just stuck with the name. Oh I gotcha okay and this is the Taty here that is bourbon steep with cinnamon. Clove Black Pepper. Cardamom and citrus peel. Okay well I'M GONNA pick it up real quick because it you can pick it out of the lineup. Because this little hazy right yeah. There's sugar in their. You'll taste the original bottle or just offer analysis. I believe one person was brave enough to taste it. I didn't do. They survive it. Yes yes 'cause. They used fresh fruit at the time. From what we can tell what happens to fresh fruit over time. I mean I would imagine like what was black. Oh Yeah I can imagine that because the sale was like was there can be something. That point. Is Bacteria runamuck. You can see anything in it. Yeah it reminds me of fall like sit on a Hay Bale and ride around wagon from for fall festival and get good. Get your get your Straw. Bale out kind of sit on it and Yup. Yeah exactly exactly what it tastes so was the was the Taty. The first idea of this is the first product that we also want to come out with it as like an darker liquid. Yeah we knew. We wanted to launch with that product. The vodkas really were just there to help carry us through while whiskey aged sounds like the story of every other story out today. One gotTa make it happen. Making whisky is expensive. It is it is and so how long to the point where you know because I would imagine you're alternating the days still and and then you've got basically you're mashing in one day and then you got you know you're you're trying to still in another. So what was the? What was the schedule of like? Okay this is the days that we can pump out vodka. This is the days that we can do our whiskey. What did that look like? So basically you So we do actually made with our Tennessee. Whiskey mashed bill in so that kind of helped as far as just laying down product. We were able to just firm it near Mash ferment. That whiskey and then after the fact we could decide. Did it go in a barrel or did we still it further to turn it into our Baca But really it was just a juggling act. Of course this loft wherein right now was our original storage space while it's limited space so I also knew I only had so much time before I needed the next warehouse and so we were actually distilling less than our capacity. Because I need it gives us time to finish our warehouse so we were pretty much just trying to lay down as much whisky as we could but give us time anyway in so finding holes in the schedule to produce the vodkas to preach the tidy to bottle everything was actually a really easy just because we didn't have the space to be able to make whiskey every day anyway. Yeah talk about the design. It's a beautiful facility like did you. Did you know what you wanted or did you have to outside help to kind of tell you? What was the design? Who can who came up with a design. It was eighteen so we worked with a group HERE IN MEMPHIS called L. K. That helped us with of our interior design work in that extended to even like our equipment lay out as well because we knew from day. One we want this to be a place you could do tours and see everything and so they wanted it to be beautiful as well as functional and so it was designed team saying. Oh let's make it look this way and then me having to say no. That's not how piping works. Let's come up with a different solution to reality. Yes yes. Let's get this thing functional. Yeah so it was definitely a teamwork what came first that or You know like getting vendome in here to figure out like this is what the stills are going to look like. This is where the the mashed green match are going to be. They had actually already started talking independent before I even got on board To where my first day on the job we actually hit the road and went up to Louisville. And.
