"Post it on a ticket down posted of is that I know the line was it said of an avocado if if the avocado was the year twenty twenty and it was ninety five percent it with a McConnell it's been above a cada all right you know often look towards the new year's with perspective is how it's gonna affect the station in the listener and you know are we on the right boat eight yeah you know I partner with that Robert Lucci who is the program director here and we talk about these things and I told her you know what before twenty twenty it's going to be a good year and I know that sounds strange in the middle of it now but man I do not back off on that for one second I think it's not about pain you know I had a massive surgery at the end of last year where they had to cut me open take stuff out put stuff in knock me out to do it and if I had the perspective that I was being stabbed because it used a knife and then it would have been bad if I had the perspective that things were gonna be taken out of me that might have been bad if I add the perspective of foreign objects being put inside me then that would have been bad but if I had the perspective that this was going to keep me this new kidney was going to keep me off from living off of the machine three or four days a week for three half four hours pop in my perspective changed and this show was is and always will be about the things that I say it is it should be a a respite it should be a sanctuary from the heavy news it should be a sanctuary from politics but I tell you every single week that we come here to talk about food the people that make it the culture behind it and the weight that food plays in our lives and I think it's I think it ties into a lot of things this show will not get into politics but it will get into humanity it will get into culture it will get into these things that we all share that are imperative so I don't want to turn you off I know a lot of people are getting into well why are you on the bandwagon are asking each other waiting on a bandwagon I'll tell you this as a punk rocker growing up as an independent thinker somebody who studied theologies and many theologies as somebody who fancies himself a logician studied logic and reason and is compassionate all these things are intertwining into where my headspace is today and I think that's fair to share with you that so that you know that I'm going through similar things you're going through but I will tell you there is a time to get on the bandwagon I'm sorry but we've made that a pejorative we've made it a pejorative of unity when you think about what a band wagon is it's not a bad thing means everybody is celebrating the music going down the street Schering love and unity and connection so as people tell you not to get on band wagons keep in mind if people didn't get on band wagons there would be no Christianity it started small very small actually talking about a dozen people and with that doesn't people the band wagon was built people got on board and you know what they did they continue to tell people the importance of getting on that bandwagon so when we talk about food today we'll talk about culture we do that every single day don't you're different don't make excuses to turn it off don't make excuses to run from it because it's nothing different than we've done before we shed lights on different cultures here and different people and different ethnicities and the type of food they eat and why it penetrates our very culture in the beauty of the American culture and I've traveled a lot my wife and I travel a lot prior to the Max being born three years ago and one of the things you learn about travel I think was Mark Twain who said you can't be you can't be a bigot if you travel you just really start to see and get opened up two different cultures and you know why it starts with food you got me going to a new culture you go holy crap is that duck face soup or something and you go well I I do like to duck your head you like super let's give it a try you start learning about things as to why that was created if there are certain things on their table as kids in those things build that connection why do you love your grandfather's or grandmother's your mom's your dad's cooking because as a kid it spoke to you it spoke the history of their life that spoke the history of your life and it gave you comfort I'm half breed my dad was an American of Mexican descent my mom S. Scottish English and Irish descent and I'm better for it to me it was great because I got to see different things and god bless my mom for really loving the Latin culture and diving head first into it learning how to cook a to make tortillas by hand all these things by the women and the ladies and the people that were around her in the early days of their marriage because yes here comes the stereotype my mom and dad lived with my dad's mother for two two and a half years or what have you and these things you know made me who I am yes I had mac and cheese absolutely but you know what I have only got soup as well I had homemade tortillas I had all kinds of things might my mom's a chibi Chung as there still one of my very favorite things in the whole wide world we had these foods and through those foods I understand understood and learned more about my father I understood that he even had different palates than I did at the time and food as I've said many times before the word companion the very word companion the report of it his bread companion means one in which you break bread with so I hope you break bread with me today as in every day or they're going to be things that are woven throughout the show absolutely are you gonna have questions as to why I do certain things or have certain gaster talk about black owned businesses of course yeah I hope you do however but as you have those questions please allow me to answer them it's a two way communication here and trust me I haven't always been open to it either so I'm not preaching to anyone I'm learning and I'm kind of excited about it I stand by that this is twenty twenty is going to be a great year as long as our perspective and moving forward in understanding is what's gonna take place and that's something else I told my boss before twenty twenty I said the word that I want to focus on for the station because she and I share those all the time what's the one word we can focus on this year for the station and I told her it was gonna be empathy empathy was the focus for twenty twenty and looking at this year with one out and having to wear masks not for yourself but for others having to stay home not necessarily for yourself for others looking at the black lives matter movement and seeing it not as the rewrite that some people will do like only black lives matter or black lives mattering cop lives don't and all these things that people want to tell you is what being said is what is being said when it's not we're going to gather around the table today we're gonna talk about food we're gonna connect with each other but we're also going to interweave the reality of what's going on I don't want to shut the curtains today I don't want to draw the blinds I don't want to say it's not going on let's talk about food I'm going to tie it through and I hope that you trust me the way you have in the past to make this journey makes sense and to hold me to show my math and explain why I believe what I believe and why these topics are important to food through culture and through people let's get the latest news ranking the calf I knew from.
