Dr. Birx says coronavirus is "extraordinarily widespread" in rural areas
"Into a new month, and Dr Deborah Birks of the White House Corona Virus Task Force warns that were also in a new phase of the pandemic. What we're seeing today is different for March and April. It is extraordinarily rides spread. It's into the rural as equal urban areas and to everybody who lives in a rural area. You are not immune or protected from this virus. Works told CNN that no matter where people live, they should wear a face mask and practice social distancing. Today, President Trump called her pathetic in a tweet. Joining us now is NPR's Eric Whitney, who's keeping an eye on the latest news about covert 19 around the country. Hi, Eric. Hello, Jeremy. We just heard. Dr Burkes mentioned the spread in rural areas give us more details about where we're seeing spikes in rural parts of this country, So I'm based in Montana. It's a mostly rural state and like a lot of rural states, we've had very low numbers until about June. And since then we're seeing our overall case can't grow exponentially. Following rollbacks on restrictions on businesses and visitors. Last week, we saw a construction site at a mountain resort here blow up with more than 100 positive cases. I know there's a people in tourist towns were really concerned about all the out of state plates. They're seeing across many states, their frontline workers they're concerned about being exposed to the virus. Reporter in Tennessee tells me the outbreak there has now moved beyond Nashville and Memphis and become widespread across much of the state. And I think that's also the case in a lot of southern states with high infection rates like Mississippi and Alabama. Still pretty Communist e big spikes in rural places with big meatpacking plants or other agricultural operations where people worked closely together. Jails and prisons are often located in rural areas, and we're seeing spikes there, too, when you mentioned some of the states that are in the south. In fact, six of the top seven states in terms of the new cases are in the south. The other Being California are things starting to level off at all in those states that have seen spikes in recent weeks well, California's daily case count has dropped from a peak on July 25th of more than 10,000 new cases today. About 6400 yesterday. You know that's good news. But it is far from assured that trend will continue in 6400 cases a day is still huge that Khun spawned a lot of new spread. No, Arizona has seen a more sustained drop recently, the state's weekly average of new cases. Has been going down since early July. But health officials in Arizona and even that state's conservative governor Doug Ducey, are not saying that they're out of the woods yet Governor dues He paused his previous plans to continue broad reopening. Hospitals in Arizona have been strained. That's eased a little bit, but it's not over yet. And then, if you look a test positivity rates in many Southern states like Florida and South Carolina, there's they're often in the double digits. Mississippi's test positive the rate is over 20%. Georges is more than 12% in public health officials say that anything over a 5% positivity rate is concerning, so I don't think we can say that things were leveling off in Southern states.

The Best Places in America to Build Wealth By Age
"Yeah. Of the things I love about when we do this show is where show ideas come from right. So obviously a lot of times it comes from the audience sometimes, it comes from something we'll be doing internally. With clients that the wealth management firm but this came from a different place. This whole show was born out of something that you would not think of money got shelby born of. So guys it probably plays out a lot like you think it is around here is that bose office is right next to my? Office and when I come in in the morning I typically I suck all productivity out of the room by going in sitting in one of his chairs and I tell him. So, here's what happened. My daughter is taking a personal finance course and one of the big topics that she had and I was just really incredible is the income tax rate by state and how that impacts as well as the cost of living for rent and other things, and I can still remember the example was San Francisco compared to Portland Oregon, and I'll get into the details later. I was just I told a house like you got to pay attention. This really is an amazing thing on while when you're starting out, you gotta pay attention what tax rates and other things because they really influence. So I was all excited about this idea in abroad a. He of course, pull out. Wait until I turned around and stuck me in the back and then told me this idea was horrible but he did make it better. I give you a lot of credit you you think like I think but you make things. I I think you take it. You bridge the idea into something else because he came up with. Why don't we do this by age of the best places to live because what you're hitting on is different parts of the country have different things, and here's what I didn't realize when we had this conversation 'cause this is probably a month and a half ago. That had this conversation was how current events were going to veer into what we're talking about here because. Just in the last three days Joe. Rogan has announced. He's moving from California to Texas. You hear Tesla is announced. They'll go have a brand new plant that they're going to be building a cyber truck in Texas as well. So you start thinking about, wow, there are things going on and how many articles do we see right now because of what happened with Cova? That people are working from home. Big corporations are announcing. You know what? Maybe we'RE NOT GONNA. Go back to the traditional office based component. We're let you work from wherever I think a lot of people are about to say. If I've a choice. Let me start figuring out what's important to me on the decision making of where I should leave live for Mafia and what I think about brides. We've never actually sat down put pen to, but we actually worked this entire exercise ourselves starting way back in like the early two thousand tins is time figuring out where we want to live like where do we want to put the business where to the families what opportunity to look for? Even, though we had, we didn't have the show pinned at that time. We kind of went through the things that we're going on the show on how you should think about where I live really impacts my financial wellbeing both now and over the long term have you ever noticed corporations will have an entire task force at their job is to figure out where they're going to put it in starting the local communities to essentially bid out, give them tax breaks and other things, and they'll they'll figure out. They'll take the executive teams and figure out where they WANNA live I. Don't think the average American I think most people live where they live because that is close to where they were born family is close to where they went to College A. You know I don't know that people have gone done a deep dive yet spend the entire show. We have so many episodes talking about training your mind to think a certain way thinking about all the tactics to building wealth but one of the most important things is to make sure that you're putting your entire financial empire is rooted in Fertile Soil Yep, and let me give you a perfect example. I lived in Georgia my entire life. Loved it. Now, there's two things that were going on Bo. You are starting to reach a point in your career on new you needed additional opportunities because i. you know the where we lived in an south, Atlanta was just not going to be economically feasible for support me and my family but future advisor wasn't GonNa be the same. So that was then have a special needs daughter Yep. So that kind of the culmination of those things brought together starting to do this research and when I tell people we moved to Nashville after we looked at Naples Florida after we looked at Alfa Reta. George after we looked at Boone North Carolina. I Charleston I mean, we have a whole list of all the different cities we went through and actually pulled up the the data points. People look at me like I have a third, all my head and I'm like, no, this is this was how important this was. So I want to encourage you to think about where you live also a former neighbor who's now back in Chicago. He says his biggest turning point in his career was when he was just a print salesman in Chicago barely you remember these guys from door to door when we were down in south. Atlanta try sell a dismal way to make a living. He took a flyer chance and started doing sells out in California for a technology company changes entire life I mean he's back in Chicago. Now lived in Tennessee for while we have clots. Yeah I think one of the thing that's really interesting Brian is like We're we were talking about this on average personal finance. It was a lot of focus on early part of your career where to decide I want to start my career but this actually permeates through all the different stages of life because what you say we have clients right now that are either at retirement at first retirement or beginning to think about retirement that are starting this process right now figuring okay. This is where I've. Lived my whole life? How do I make the choice of where? I. Want to retire where I want to move to what adjustments I wanna make, and so we're seeing it very practically right now in the lives of real human beings. So don't take for granted where you live because it does have a huge impact I will tell you moving to Nashville we moved here for all those things on that list what we didn't know. Is that when we moved here, we gonNA have access to more creative types have access to people who move out of work video who could do video editing who could do graphics. The fact that we moved to Nashville. has made this business probably we've quadrupled out easily. I mean I don't even know what the past quadruple is toppled is win toppled. Okay. So so I'm just telling you guys if you will change your minds at you might this thing might grow more fruit than you even could put in your

Rep. John Lewis Makes Final Stop in Atlanta
"Rights activist and icon who became a moral force in the United States. Congress will be laid to rest. Today. He's been celebrated in a series of memorials this week and this past Sunday, he received a hero's sendoff in his native state of Alabama. And on Monday, Congressman Lewis was honored in Washington, DC It was an emotional Ceremony with lawmakers. His colleagues Speaker of the House, Nancy Pelosi, played a portion of a speech that Lewis gave to graduates at Emory University in 2014. As young people. You must understand that there are forces that would take us back to another period. But you must know that would mark warned by way made too much progress and we're going to make you some step back. Some delays some disappointment, but you must never give up. I give in. You must keep the faith and keep so eyes on the prize. That is so calling. That is your mission That is tomorrow. Obligation that is oh, man. They get out there and do it getting away. Lewis lay in state in the Capitol Rotunda following the ceremony, making him the first black lawmaker to receive that honor. And today, Congressman Lewis comes home to Atlanta, Georgia. The funeral service is being held at the historic Ebeneezer Baptist Church, where the Reverend Martin Luther King Jr was once co pastor and joining us Now is Emma Hurt. She's a reporter with our member station W. A. B in Atlanta, and she joins us live from outside of Ebeneezer Baptist and Emma describe what it's like there where you are right now. Hi, Emma. Can you hear me? Emma will be joining us shortly. She is outside of Ebenezer Baptist Church. Now let's go to Debbie Elliot. We'll check back in with Emma. And just a few moments. Hi, Debbie. How are you? I am good. I know that you spent a lot of time in Alabama over the weekend. There were several memorials and services. It was quite a scene. Right. You know, I think the thing that stands out the most was was when he was in Selma and his casket was on this horse drawn carriage. And it crossed the Edmund Pettus Bridge, of course, that iconic place where he was met with state troopers and sheriff's deputies who beat him up in a peaceful march for voting rights. Back in 1965 and people had come to sort of witness him make that Symbolic final crossing. Yeah, you've been You've known the congressman for for many years. You spoke with him back in 2015 at that. Edmund Pettus Bridge. Tell us about that. Yes. So this was in advance of 50th anniversary celebrations marking You know, 50 years since the Voting Rights Act passed because of that horrible incident on that bridge. The nation in the world really became aware of the brutality against African Americans who were pushing for equality in the American South. And so I met him there. We stood at the foot of the bridge, and we had a conversation about what it was like back then. And let's listen to a little bit, and he describes what happened on that came before. Beating us. Shrimping with horses. Releasing the tick and I was getting here. A state trooper with the night stick. My legs went from under me. I thought I was going to die. I thought I saw death. He thought he saw death, You know, and this was a moment where he had been that the the sheriff's deputy in the state troopers told them you have to turn back. We're not going to let you march to Montgomery. And they asked to kneel in prayer and as they went to kneel in prayer before they were going to turn back and go back to their churches. They were told. The meeting started. Tell me what's so powerful about that moment in history is that it was it was. It was a time where people were able to see for the first time the brutality. Those images were so powerful. It was labeled bloody Sunday and it sped up the passages you said of the 1965 Voting Rights Act. Debbie will will come back to you a little later to talk more about that. That's NPR's Debbie Elliot. We now have with us in the hurt. She is a reporter with our member station W. Abe in Atlanta, and she's outside of Ebeneezer Baptist Church where services will be held today. And Emma describe for us what it's like for you out there right now what you're seeing. Okay. Hi, Emma. This is Tanya. Can you hear me? Hi. Yeah. Can you hear me? I can I know that. It's It's quite a crowd. Okay? Can you tell us a bit about what you're seeing out there? I'm seeing I'd say about 200 people out here and we've kind of got to groups. We've got the people that are starting to gather at the Jumbotron, which has been set up right outside the church. I'm waiting to watch the service live there. And then we've got a crowd of people who are who are welcoming people as they arrive, welcoming the VIPs on presidential watch. Right now, I would say, waiting waiting for the three former presidents who are going to attend today and speak and the mood here is is really. I mean, it's it's serious, but it's also so joyful. It's about singing, and the stories that people have been telling me are just really powerful stories of how much Congressman Lewis meant to them. How much his message means to them in this time. And how much they want their Children and their grandchildren to make sure to remember him and what he stood for. What's really powerful, a swell about his home state of of his home state of Georgia and the city of Atlanta. Is that so many people felt like they knew him because they met him. You're hearing all of those stories from folks, I'm sure their interactions with him. Ebeneezer Baptist has so much history is I mentioned earlier, Martin looking Junior was a co pastor their share with us the significance of that church. Well, this was this was more Luther King Juniors from church. He grew up in it and was pastor as you said. It was also John Lewis's Home Church, where his wife's funeral was held in 2013. And it's really special. I think for these two figures overlap in this In this part of Atlanta to on Auburn Avenue, which is really the centre of Black Atlanta life, and some would argue the center of the Civil Rights movement and the two figures. I mean yesterday what was so powerful about Congressman Lewis lying in state in the Capitol in Georgia was that this was an honor denied to Dr King when he died. So I spoke to people who said I'm here because of all the people like Dr King who were denied that honor. And here we are giving Congressman Lewis most them may be the most honor. That we can right now. Sure, Let's listen to some of those folks that you spoke with you. It was amazing. It was amazing. All people on the young people. A lot of my friends has passed away. But I remember him from there. So that's why you mentioned This church being in the Hart. I just want to tell you that was Patricia Spicer, who's here, and she was talking about seeing Congressman Lewis speak at the 1963 march on Washington and that that's why his words were so powerful then and grabbed her then and she had to come today. The body of John Lewis was brought to Atlanta yesterday, and as you mentioned, it passed a number of important landmarks in the city. Walk us through. Some of those final landmarks that this journey to finally to Ebeneezer Baptist Church. There were there were quite a few stops because, as you said, Congressman Lewis has been such a presence in his district for, you know, 30 plus years. There was a pause at the Rainbow Crosswalk in Midtown, which you know, celebrates LGBT Q. The LGBTQ community here they passed by his downtown congressional office and a major street here that was renamed after him in the John Lewis Freedom Parkway on DH. It was there was also a big stop at a mural that you, Khun see driving down the interstate that runs through Atlanta. It has a picture of John Lewis and the words hero and, you know, it was really powerful. Tio. Watch him land for the last time in Atlanta and to watch him, you know, make his his final journey around the city. That's Emma hurt. She's a reporter with our member station. W. A. B in Atlanta. Thank you so much. Thank you. We're going to bring in another voice to our conversation. Remembering today the life and legacy of Congressman John Lewis Bishop Leah Daughtry is with us. Now. She's a political organizer and strategist. She ran. The Democratic National Convention is in 2008 in 2016 and she is the presiding prelate of the House of the Lord Churches. And there is perhaps no one better to talk about the intersection of faith in politics in this moment, which is what's so much of John Lewis's life really represents Bishop. Doctor. Thank you for being here. Good morning to you. And thank you very much from including this conversation. I guess I would just start by asking where your thoughts are this morning. Oh, you know, in the it's Ah, it's a powerful day. In the African American tradition. We call this the services home going And so they are mix of sorrow and sadness, but also great joy, particularly when it's someone like Mr Lewis, who has lived his life in such an exemplary way and in keeping with the principles of his faith that we know that he And our tradition. He's going home to be with the creator. And so we rejoice in bed and in the deeply held idea that we will see him again. So the mix of emotions on and I'm looking forward to the servants and being able to worship with those who have gathered To celebrate his life. The the word and his faith came before politics, did it. Not that was with what guided him first? Yes, yes, And I think that's so instructive for all of us who are people of faith. He was deeply guided by the principles of the face that he held so deeply and so closely and though that is what informed him and informed his action. Informed his decision to get involved in the civil rights movement on then to pursue a career in electoral politics. It's because of the ideals of of of our faith of our share faith that God intends for all of us. To live a full and abundant life. It holds us equally ah, in God's eyes and ah, divinely created and therefore in endowed with these Possibilities of being hole and equal. And then we have an obligation to pursue of society that sees us as God. And so for John Lewis that meant getting involved in the civil rights movement. That meant going on the bus boycotts being part of the leadership because it was he was pursuing the principal's off his face. And then in his later life, Of course, he came to Congress again, seeking ways to create a just society, a beloved community that treats all of its citizens equally. That has got had intended them to be he. It was almost a joke near the end of his life. How often he was asked to talk about preaching to chickens as a child on how readily he wanted to share that story, right? It was, he just he reveled in it of the idea of Off the joy he had as a very young man. I mean, eight years old, even sharing what he believed to be the most important important message there, Wass and and it helped him. Negotiate through through Washington. It helped him find ways to communicate with people with whom he disagreed. This's a very important part of his legacy is enough. It is it is, you know it and it tells you how deeply held his faith was. You know in these days, particularly when people are chasing followers, and ah likes and so forth on social Media network to think of this young man who who so loved his face. It was so impassioned by that any audience any Opportunity. He had to share his fate. Even with the chickens, Wass and was a chance to home his craft was a chance to get his ideas out was a chance. The tests, cadences and rhythms of words was a chance to share was the chickens and with those around the pick of the air, the grass the field how passionate he was about things that he believed and then bringing those ideals to Congress and understanding again. The people I help The idea of our faith that God has created a so equal And so if this idea that you don't have to be just like me to be just like me, there's something we have in common with each other. And if we can just talk if we can just be in conversation, we can see each other perhaps here because we may not still agree, but at least The tendency to demonize the unknown goes away lesson diminishes in the conversation. And who could refuse the conversation with Mr Lewis, who could refuse to just sit and talk and listen, and he was as good a listener. As he Waas a conversationalist. So you know, I think the Congress was richer for having him there on the Congress was Richard that his colleagues were Richard for just being able to be in conversation with someone who has deeply held ideal of deeply held conviction and experience. We should point out. Three former presidents are expected to get the memorial today. Bill Clinton. Barack Obama and and George W. Bush. I mean, just exemplifying the way that he he was very firm about what he believed and believed in his party, but he would work with Republicans if it meant Getting getting through the legislation he thought was most important. That's right. I mean, red and blue. These sorts of lines. These artificial divisions that we create among ourselves to categorize each other didn't really existed. Mr Lewis's lexicon. It was all about the humanity of people, and so has admit moving communities forward if admits Getting everybody the rights they deserve. Then he was willing to have the conversation. He was willing to be engaged and involved. And we see that in the folks that are going to speak today that are going to be present today at the tone and the tenor of the service, which he himself Designed. He spoke to his his closest staff. A. Stephen knew his time was shortening and said, who he wanted to be there. And what's the one of the elements of the club is to be what we see. Today is of Mr Lewis's own crafted bishop. Doctor, Can I ask one quick question if you were involved in the ceremony today, Realism putting you on the spot. But is there scripture that you think represents this moment, something you can point to that that carries the weight of history with it, but also Is about hope is about the future. You know, The thing that comes to mind for me is the passage and Hebrews. There's a chapter the faith chapter. We call it. Chapter 11 that talks about all the icons of our faith. Abraham and Sarah and getting and so forth on a long litany and in the middle of verse 13 says these all died in the faith, not having received the promises. But having seen them afar off, and for me that speaks of the hope. That was Mr Lewis's life. He stood on the shoulders of those who went before who didn't see freedom who didn't think the achievement of our civil rights. He followed them and he lived his life in such a way that he advanced the faith. He advance the causes, but he didn't see all of the achievement. And now we come behind him on continue his legacy. So he believed he held these convictions didn't scenes didn't see everything he fought for comes repair, But he still believed he still continue fighting. And henceforth Scripture goes on to say there was laid up for me A crown of righteousness was the Lord. That right? Justo shall give me on that day. And not to me only bought to all those who love disappearing. And so we look forward to seeing the two of us again in the future. Bishop Leah Daughtry. Thank you so much for sharing your reflections with us on this day. Thank you. Yes, very powerful. Let's go now to NPR. Congressional correspondent Kelsey Snell and NPR's senior editor and correspondent on the Washington desk. Ron Elving. Hey, guys. Kelsey. Good morning. We've heard so many powerful tributes from people throughout the country and the world. But But Louis is home state of Georgia. His presence and work had an especially profound. Meaning for his home state of Georgia for his district. Tell us a little bit more about his time there. You know, I am reminded of a couple of really, really standout moments of. I think one of the things that I think about a lot right now is the tribute that that they delivered for Johnny Isakson, who was a Republican senator. Of from Georgia, who retired last year, and in 2019 it was in November. So just just so a bit ago, Johnny Isakson was being was being honored and John Lewis Delivered this speech explaining how they could work together and and how there was an opportunity for anybody to find spaces where they agreed. And then, at the end of his speech, he walked across the Isaacson, who was in bad health and who had had trouble with his spine and said I will come to you brother and walked over and gave him a hug. That was really very much representative of the way. That John Lewis approached, you know, working on problems was what he wanted there to be bipartisanship. He wanted to be the person who came across, walked across and shake somebody's hand gave them a hug and said We can get something done here. He was also the kind of person who, whenever you saw him in the capital. There would be some person some tourist or a constituent who wanted to come and talk to him, and there was always had the time he had the time to tell his story had the time to talk to people about their story. He was extremely generous with his time and his constituents were known to come up to the capital and spent time directly with him. There was never a moment when it team like he was bigger than anybody else. Yeah, it's been Ah, so enriching and so fun over the last week to hear how so many people that I personally no have have met John Lewis, whether it's in Washington whether it's in Atlanta. New York Across the country. People have had a chance to meet him, but also have these intimate one on one conversations with him A CZ. We've learned he never turned anyone away. He was always willing to stop and have those conversations. One of the things that jumps out to me was a story about Congressman Lewis. When Hey, was in his district and he would spend a day doing a job in the district so even way back in the seventies, he would do things like drive a ups truck for a day to get a sense of what his constituents were up against. That is something that so many people feel is that he was of the people. Absolutely, and a lot of members of Congress that I speak to say they learned from that approach. They learned from John Lewis not just from the work that he did in civil rights, but the way he had a relationship with his constituents the way that he continued to speak about issues that meant something to him and then became active in them. I am reminded of the sit in on the House floor. On gun violence. He led House Democrats in a sit in and following. I believe the pulse shooting and they said that this was not a time when they could leave, and then he wanted to be the person who, you know who did the good trouble that he always talks about. He did not want to just be a person talking about it. He wanted to be a person involved in it. And you know so many members of Congress on Democrats and Republicans who felt inspired by that personal connection to his beliefs. The service eyes expected to begin shortly, and about 10 5 or 10 minutes. Ron, I'd love to go through with you what we can expect for today's service. But I want to talk first about Lewis's time as a civil rights activist, part of the movement back in the sixties. We expect to hear a lot about that today during the service, right? Yes, indeed, his life traced if you will, the trajectory of the African American experience over the last 70 80 years in American history. He was one of the group sometimes referred to as the Big Six, of course, beginning with Martin Luther King, whose name will be invoked. Many times today, but also Whitney Young of the National Urban League. Roy Wilkins of the CP. James Farmer of the Congress of regular Racial Equality and a Philip Randolph from the Pullman Porters Union. They were in many respects the Giants. Of the civil rights movement, as it took shape after World War two and rose in the fifties and sixties. Of course, John Lewis was there for most, all of it. He was part of the citizens at lunch counters in Nashville. He was one of the original 13 Freedom riders in 1961 integrating bus travel in the south. He was the youngest speaker on that day in 1963 when the march on Washington for jobs and justice featured Martin Luther King's I have a Dream speech. John Lewis spoke that day was the youngest speaker. He's the last person surviving from the speakers Dyas that day. And then, of course, the 1965 moment we have referenced Many times his beating on the Pettus Bridge. And, of course, his career in Congress, As Kelsey has described and then his links to the Black lives matter movement, which he paid tribute to In death as his cortege was coming to the capital earlier this week and paused on black lives matter Plaza in front of the White House to pay tribute to the movement and the people who are carrying forward his ideals today.

Black Women Deserve More Credit in Civil Rights Movements
"Black women have been the pioneers of so many movements that have changed the world, the Eurasia of black women from the story of these movements is something. We've seen many times throughout American history starting all the way back with the women's suffrage movement. African American women in particular played a significant in sometimes overlooked role at a suffrage movement. There were African American women fighting for suffrage from the beginning you. Know sojourner truth and the time of the civil war I to be Wells Barnett and Mary Church. Terrell, they built a movement that would grow to half a million but they would never find exceptions among mainstream. Selfridge's at that time. Suffrage leaders were actively wooing southern white members to appease the southerners. White suffragettes found it expedient to abandon their black sisters they minimize the presence of black woman in that struggle. Stan seize control of suffrage history, and this multi volume book still dominates the histories and essentially wrote black women out of that. That's right. Black suffragettes were literally written out of the history books by white women in the movements and just look at their faces. It's like they had already seen the future and they were like I'M NOT GONNA get credit for any of this Emma because the truth is certain white feminist heroes worst super-problematic. People, remember them like they were early versions of wonder woman when in reality they were more like the mom from get out. Now, you may not be surprised that these nineteen twenties, Karen's where he gets to accept black women's work but give them credits. But what may surprise you is that black men in the civil rights movement also happy to do a similar thing most women who worked in the movement who were the exit backbone of the civil rights movement were not really known media attention would always be drawn to the men of the movement as they are doing work that Martin, Luther, King's and others but would not necessarily go to women like Ella Baker who was a longtime activist. Who helped to nurture and birth the student movement Diane Nash With the Lead Strategist behind the citizens in Nashville and the freedom writers he played a critical role in organizing the Selma marches. Dorothy height was the Godmother of the civil rights movement. But because she was a woman, she was often off to the side behind the podium behind the scenes she was guiding force at the table when the big six planned the historic march on Washington in nineteen sixty three, the lone woman at a table full of med, yet despite all her efforts height could not convince them that a woman should be allowed to speak at the podium the day of the march come on man this is so messed up. Black Women with the lifeblood of the civil rights movement, and still they got caught blocked by the dudes I. Mean, the Reverend's got half a dozen microphones right there you come break. One of those offer, my girl Dorothy she was a critical part of the group if the vendors were fighting Santa's but they made eye on Manchester from the stands and this just shows you that black women don't just have to deal with racism from the world but oftentimes, they have to deal with the sexism within their own communities and the world at large.

It's kind of been the theme all this year. You know all these big events getting canceled or push back and then canceled and that's what happened here.

If you applied to speak at podcast movement by the way you're going to have to reapply if you WANNA speak virtually at the virtual event. That's I believe October nineteenth yeah, Eighteen, th through the twenty nineth, so they're going to kind of spread it out over ten days, so at shouldn't a burden, too many people with having to take a lot of time off from work. That'll be good. Yeah I was surprised when I saw how long the virtual event is going to go for, but I do think that's good, because most of us including me. I don't really WANNA. Sit on a you know virtual video conference type thing for you know more than. Probably a few hours a day, so spreading it out will make it easier. I think for most people oh. Yeah for sure, and you know I kind of saw this coming of if you notice all of the little, meet upset. podcast movements been having online every time they do it. They use a different technology. So I think they were just testing out the technology to figure out what they want to do for the the virtual full events so. It'll be interesting to see how it all works out I. Hope I hope it goes well. I know podcast is doing one in August. that's all virtual online, so we'll see how these big conferences work in the virtual world. It really is kind of a brave new world for all of US years. We try to figure out. How to do all these things in the wake of a pandemic, it's It's all new stuff. Oh Yeah I. Think L. for the most part. We're getting through it and getting. Getting. Things done that have to be done. You know that are not related directly to the pandemic or all that so. I think I. Think it's good that it's online this year. I, you know I really hope that things get back to where we can get back in person because I haven't traveled since October which is amazing for me usually. I'm on the road. So Anyway Twenty twenty one. They've already scheduled the podcast movement twenty twenty, one for Nashville Tennessee so. That'll be a new venue for them. Usually they're in bigger cities and guess. Nashville is pretty big, but I. don't know I guess I wouldn't mind checking out Nashville. Yeah. It's an interesting location. I. I know, didn't There was another you know media convention was it's The religious broadcasters association I think that Yeah usually habits meetings in Tennessee. Yeah, and RB National Religious Broadcasters. They usually have there's in Tennessee. They had it out in Anaheim one year. But for the most part it's at the same venue. In Nashville, so I know Mackenzie Angelo and todd have all been to that venue for that show, so they'll be familiar with it. Yeah Yeah it's It's an interesting choice. I like that you know podcast movement has. Tried through its history different locations I. think it's good for everybody because you know, it's a travel under abnormal conditions you know is different for everybody. Some people can afford to go farther and if you have it in a different location. If, people want to drive in. They can or whatever the case is, so it's nice that they've. They've tried to have it in different places over the years. Oh, yeah, when they hit Chicago a I drove. Most of the way in took Amtrak in so that was Kinda cool. Nashville kind of on the outside of my one day drive. Limit so we'll see. You know. Who knows. If, I drive it or fly it or Maybe, I'll find a train that goes that way. I don't know we'll see but I kind of look forward to that Rate. Stood, we have here in the news folder. According to macrumors and many many other sources spotify is introducing their video podcasts for more shows. And I know James Crillon over at Pod News. Dot Net was asking them. You know how. How is that GONNA work is to be are astronaut. turns out that no some sort of proprietary. Thing, so basically you have to upload the video right at spotify, and it only goes to spotify, so it's not like a full video podcast, and if you have a video podcast, that is a full normal, RSS, based video podcast still won't work on spotify.

Get to Know Cristina Mittermeier
"Welcome to good night stories rebel girls. I am Sadie from Nashville I'm eight years old and I'm interviewing Cristina. Mittermeier was the narrator of last week's episode of good night's toys for girls. If you haven't heard last week's episode now is a good time to go back and check it out. Christina, would you like to introduce yourself? My name is Christina Mittermeier I am a national geographic photographer I'm the CO founder of see legacy and like Jane Goodall I also love animals. I am the mother of three children. All of whom Love Tyson and they all love stories about Jayne good. Why did you create see legacy? I created see legacy because I wanted photography an adventure to be an invitation for everybody by publishing my phonograph on my stories on social media, everyday I tried to invite people and share what I. Love about the oceans with everybody. What makes you a rebel thorough? What makes me a rebel girl is that? I grew up in the mountains of central Mexico, but my dream was to swim with dolphins. Everybody told me that I couldn't do it. Because this was not for girls, but like chains mother, my mother champion me, and she said if you WanNa, go swim with dolphins, you have to find a way to get to university and become a marine biologist, and that's exactly what I did. When did you first become interested in photography? And can you tell us what type of photography or most interested in when I finish my studies in University to be a marine biologist I realized that our oceans were in a lot of trouble. Pollution overfishing. All of these things were threatening. The ocean and I wanted to help just like Jane wanted to help Tim Pansies. I thought that science was going to be the tool. I could use to help, but I realized that people are more. In learning from stuff that they understand they can see. Photography became the tool that allow me to communicate with many more people about not just help beautiful the oceanus for all the things we can do to help. When I started my career, photographer I wanted to be a nature photographer. Kasai love animals. I soon realized that I really had a lot more talent to tell stories about people, so my photography became a combination of my love of nature and my interest in people, and then a become an underwater photographer so today I use my camera to tell stories about animals in the ocean and the relationship that humans have with the largest ecosystem on our planet our ocean. Photography allowed people all over the world to see the amazing work. Jane was doing with chimpanzees. What's your favorite thing about photography? My favorite thing about photography is that it's a universal language. It is something that we all understand today. We all have cameras in our telephones, and that makes us all photographers is something. We all know how to do really well and so much like photography National Geographic Allow Jane Goodall to share his stories with a very large audience, so to has my camera on my work with National Geographic, allow me to share the story of our oceans and the importance of protecting the largest. On our planet, our ocean. What is it venture? Mean to you? A venture for me is having the courage to step through the of things that I. Don't know yet sometimes that means getting in the water with a whale, or the shark sometimes means getting on stage with the large number of people and speaking in public. The most important thing about my work is that I wanted to be an. An invitation to adventure for everybody the natural world is there for all of us to enjoy and I. Want my work to be an invitation to you. How do you stay positive in the world? That doesn't always care for the environment. The reason I stay positive in a world that doesn't always care for the environment is that I am the mother of three kids their own much older now, but. I want for them to have the kind of planning that I have come to love and enjoy I want them to be able to go out into nature and spend time with wild animals, and to know that they have a future in a living planet, so I have no choice but stay positive. What's one thing? Young rebel girls can do to protect the oceans are oceans are the largest ecosystem on our planet, and we know so little about how they work. So what we need is more girls to go into. The scientists become marine biologist become underwater photographer filmmakers so that together we can tell the story of how beautiful and important our oceans are thanks Christina.
Why Is There a Parthenon in Nashville?
"At first, no one expected the building to last. The Tennessee Centennial Exposition, which was something like a world's fair or Walt Disney world's epcot was held in Nashville in eighteen, ninety seven. It featured a full scale replica of the famous Parthenon from Greece the Plaster Parthenon. This plaster Parthenon which fit in with Nashville's ambition to be the Athens of the South housed an art exhibition over six months one point eight million people visited the exposition small when compared with the twenty, seven million, who turned out for the Chicago world's fair of Eighteen, ninety three, but huge for Nashville which, at the time had a population of one hundred thousand as a nineteen twenty one newspaper put it the general effect of the cream, colored staff structure with the brilliant colors, and the freeze and Gables, so overshadowed all the other buildings that when the exposition was over, the people demanded its preservation, and it became shrine to the residents and visitors of Nashville. But this shrine was not built for the long term by nineteen eighteen. The building had disintegrated so badly that it had to be closed for safety reasons, however, thanks to popular demand. The city decided to rebuild it. Isn't concrete structure in nineteen twenty. The Nashville Parthenon reopened to the public in nineteen thirty one. As with the Greek Parthenon, the columns on the Nashville structure are not completely straight, but have a slight convex curvature called emphasis. The corrects for an optical illusion that makes straight lines appear concave at a distance. The structure is also full friezes carvings, and includes a replica of the famous elgin marbles now known as the Parthenon Marbles. These marble structures were part of the original Parthenon, but were removed by the British earl of. And sold to the British Museum in Eighteen Sixteen, the entire transaction remains a point of dispute between Britain and Greece. And while the original Parthenon is in a ruin, the national version features the complete structure. A builders made educated guesses to fill in the parts. At the time of its reopening in one, thousand, nine, hundred, eighty, one, the only thing missing from this replica Parthenon was a statue of the Greek Goddess Fina. But after twenty years of small contributions from the public via a donation box at the site plus some private funding, there was enough money to commission a forty two foot. That's thirteen meter statue, the same size as the original. Tennessee sculptor Alan require to eight years to finish the mass of work, which was unveiled in nineteen ninety, and features a spear that was crafted with McDonald's flagpole is the sturdy core for twelve years. The statue stood in plain white gypsum cement, but in two thousand and two it was gilded in real gold, although some people have complained that the gilding makes Gaudy, it's actually more historically accurate. Nashville Parthenon still serves as the city's art. Museum and it's permanent. Collection is home to sixty three paintings of nineteenth and twentieth century American artists donated by Nashville businessman and collector James.

"Nashville or out no real surprise. No surprise. It was more just kind of wait and see when this was going to happen. It was almost inevitable. Because of those nine positive corona virus tests now I was told the League did make the decision late last night to withdraw from the competition but they waited until today to announce just because they wanted to realign the groups.

So that's why they waited so long, but this is where we're. At twenty. Four teams left now in the MLS is back. To thing, this makes everyone feeling little more comfortable. It seems like it I think. They've seen the cases with Nashville and with Dallas be contained to only those teams, and you're seeing a little bit more comfort with moving forward with this tournament, because they were able to contain those to only those two teams, and you really seeing that energy, and that excitement to just get back on the field now you've already got two games in the books and you're.

Lady A, formerly Lady Antebellum, sues blues singer Lady A
"We all know the story. Country group Lady Antebellum dropped the antebellum. Decided to go with their nickname Lady A right and they did this just out of in solidarity with the black community because they realized the implications of antebellum and the civil war. And all that stuff felt were trying to do a good thing. Right? So they decided out of respect. They're just goingto go by lady A will. Then this R and B singer named Anita White. Who goes by lady, eh? Mom said, Hey, wait a second. I've been using that name while performing for 20 years. So they end up having this zoom call and we end up seeing some of it in the media, you know, like, Oh, look at them. They're laughing, laughing. Yes. Well, then, Anita Way, lady, eh? Ah, the R and B singer came forward and said OK, once the lawyers got involved, this is when things are starting to break down. Well, now the country group Lady a has filed suit against R and B singer lady, eh? Excuse me yesterday in federal court in Nashville. They've been in a battle over the name Thins announcing, of course, on June 11th that they were dropping the antebellum portion of their name. A few weeks ago, they had thought they had come to an agreement with I need a white lady, eh? Who's been performing under that name. Like I said, for a couple decades, those talks broke down. And now the group's lawyers say that I need a white is trying to keep them from enforcing. The trademark that they registered 10 years ago. Right? They've had a trademark on the name lady, which we didn't know that previously were 10 years. Yes, so she's demanding. $10 million to relinquish her claim to the name. And they're insisting that they wouldn't try to keep her from performing as lady, eh? They just want her to allow them to do the same. Sure, their trademark that they have, right, right. Exactly. So which makes it seem like that would be that's Ah, strong case if you have the trademark as opposed to if you're both just putting your hand and say Wait, we go by that. Wait. No. I have already gone by that. I don't know much about law. But I think that trademarks are a pretty powerful feather toe. Having your cat point. Yeah, and they didn't on under this. I agree. They filed the trademark. Like I said 10 years ago, then it took a year for it to get approved. And then Mrs Miss White. You know, you could say had plenty of opportunity to challenge it. And she never did until this story came out and I just feel bad for everybody.

"nashville" Discussed on Hungry In Nashville
"Of the class and let's get right. Today's topic I wear a hat keeps me warm in the winter and it keeps me warm in the summer when. I'm in a store or restaurant that has its air conditioning said Solo that it feels like a brass toilet seat on the shady side of an iceberg. So imagine how I felt when I walked into a classy restaurant and I'm told I can't get a table unless I checked by hat to hat for. Christ's sake does not like I walked in with an AK forty seven or a horse with diarrhea for some reason. The restaurant thinks it's too good for hats and if customers want to wear a hat go someplace else. We don't want today. We're going to talk about pretentious restaurants. And why they think that all men should be wearing a coat then they give you some little green jacket that doesn't fit. It was probably picked up at a second hand store. And if the guest embarrassed and who wouldn't be that's their problem because the restaurant has its standards and it's more important that those followed even if it makes the paying guest feel unwelcome by now. You know where I come down on the issue so what to others have to say the Huffington Post warning signs that you are in or about to enter a pretentious restaurant. The first is its name. If it's unpronounceable those fuller Shea. Anything hide your wallet. Ambience is a factor. The walls packed with old books. Bad examples of modern art or antics. It's probably a pretentious restaurant. If the menu includes Foams deconstructed anything ingredients. You wouldn't feed the neighbor's cat than the food is over shaft honestly. I been at a restaurant that had a deconstructed B. L. T. Sandwich now. Most of US would call that a salad topped with tomatoes croutons and Bacon but says labeled deconstructed. It costs three dollars more. The next sign of pretentious restaurant is held childlike. It is fried twinkies with C. Salting one lastly look the people around you if the people are wearing two thousand dollar suits or a dripping with jewelry. They're there to be seen not because they believe the food is just that good. It's probably not in twenty sixteen. The New York Post did review of a new restaurant called Guenter seeger. If you wanted to see the menu forget about there isn't one you pay one hundred eighty five dollars per person and you get whatever everyone else is having that night and you pay that money upfront. But it does include tip. You pay another hundred and fifty dollars for a wine pairing but it's difficult to know what wine to order when you don't know what you'll be eating as for the menu you get that as you're going out the door. The restaurant that says closed no surprise there. Then there are. The plates chargers with plates have become passe instead. Our food is served to us on a plank of wood a slate rapid paper or ball jar in London. There's a relatively new restaurant called Muse. The hundred eighty five dollar tasting menu tells you little about what you're going to eat after all. Do you think you know better than the chef what you should eat. The first course in this tin item tasting menu is called always picking. If that doesn't help you understand what you're going to be served. The chef offers this helpful description. Snacks inspired by the season. This stems from the recollections of being in the garden with my mother picking anything that was edible. Oh good random food the rest of the menus pretty much based on the Chefs Childhood Memories. Now we finish up with what is one of the least pretentious restaurants in the world McDonalds. A recent AD in Britain takes a chef's knife to a pretentious restaurant at age says the advert was created by Leo Burnett and reminds viewers. That it's ingredients are also used by other outlets. Put a link to that in the show notes so now when it comes to pretentious restaurants. Pick a place where you like the food. Feel comfortable and know what you'll be eating.

"nashville" Discussed on Hungry In Nashville
"Say Aren't you a smart cookie? The fact that you're listening to this program tells me that you're intelligent curious and ready. Learn new things so take your seat with the rest of the class and let's get right. Today's topic today is all about salt where it comes from how to best use it in the kitchen and cook on a Himalayan Salt Block. We need to start off with a basic fact. All Salt has sea salt. They're faint traces of salt. That were delivered by meteors asteroids. And the like but it's highly unlikely you'll ever taste any of that if you're eating salt. Thank in ocean. Only six percent of all salt produced goes human use. The rest goes for other things including keeping your roads free vice. So what's the deal with restaurants and Stores Selling Sea salt as a specialty item? Those high prices are likely trying to trick you into thinking. You're getting something exotic. You aren't the differences insult our in taste texture and processing. There are two main ways of getting salt. Evaporation and mining evaporation straightforward. You lay out some sea salt. Let The Sun do its thing and what's left to salt and some impurities that will be removed. Salt also comes from mining for heavy equipment is used to carve out the underground salt deposits. This Salta sometimes called rock salt a high. You say if all salt is sea salt than what is it doing underground. What you're seeing is whereas see used to be when you're cooking seasoning is essential. It's important taste the food before putting it in front of your guests so you know whether it needs more salter pepper. It's cooking one. Oh one salt. Nearly always enhances flavor so it becomes a necessity pepper is a spice and that uses optional. The National Center for Biotechnology Information Part of the National Institutes of Health says salt enhances the positive century attribute to food even some otherwise unpalatable foods. I need to pause here to define the DIFFERENCE BETWEEN TASTE AND FLAVOUR. Taste is a scientific term because it can be measured in manipulated. Flavor is a sensory experience. Not that it really matters for our purposes but I'll be using the word flavor to be more precise and so you know whether salt is affecting taste or flavor salt suppresses bitterness and food and enhances savory and sweet flavors it also booth the natural taste of the ingredients since it is a lot less expensive in quality ingredients manufacturers use the hell out of it to boost flavor when you see canned food or anything out of the center the grocery store check the nutrition label and how Sultan the product compares to your daily requirements. Then you those labels to add up all the salt in your daily Diet and it's likely you'll be surprised you'll also better understand what the manufacturer is doing to ramp up the flavor at the expense of the food. You think you're buying when you cook with fresh ingredients. You need much less salt as there's already a lot of flavor in the food you're cardiologists will love you for it. The Food Science folks say that while Salt has an impact on foods flavor it really shines by releasing aromas in the food since much of flavors smell it gives your sniffer more to work with their three main categories of kitchen salt table salt kosher salt and finishing salt. You're familiar with table salt. It's the fine grain salt that usually includes iodine. So you have a healthy thyroid. Kosher salt has larger flakes and does it usually contain additives like iodine. Finishing SALT IS A SPECIALTY ITEM. Troubled salt or smoke. Salt is added just before the dishes served kosher table salt or the primary kitchen salts table salt had better for baking kosher salt is better for cooking dissolves more easily. Food should be salt as they are prepared. If you're cooking up some onions and peppers for another dish. Salt and pepper them before adding it to other ingredients doing this will help each ingredient. Be The best it can be. It would seem this would lead to over-salting but generally does it. If you find that you have over salted something. Dairy is your friend Ed. Milk cream unsalted butter sour cream or other dairy products and those will reduce the intensity of the salt. Now I promise to tell you about pink. Himalayan salt blocks so grab some paper or writing stick. Let's get on with these. Big Salt. Blocks are cooking surface. They don't come from the Himalayas and as you use them. They lose their pink color. Pink comes from crystals of salt that had been mined from areas close to the Himalayas often in Pakistan. It's color comes from trace minerals like magnesium potassium and calcium. These blocks are large heavy expensive and require care win cleaning or cooking on them. They do add some salt to the taste of food but not much. If you're going to use one you'll need the heat. It's slowly but once it gets to the temperature. You need it whole teak for a long time so be careful if you try to grab the saying after dinner is done cleaning his also an issue. You can't use water unless you want to see your large expensive rock dissolve and run down the drain when you want to clean it. Leave the job to clean dry cloth. Greasy foods. Don't pair well. With assault block degrees can slip into crevices. When you use the sewn the next time the grease will expand faster than the stone and create cracks. However you decide to interact with salt. You probably shouldn't eliminate iodized table salt from your diet. I dine is important. And if pregnant women don't get enough their child could be stricken with congenital iodine deficiency syndrome. It's awful known as Cretinism. It's also known as Cretinism. This is a nasty condition that impairs mental and physical development. It's very common around the world and places where iodized salt or other iodine supplements art available last week. I want to mention epsom. Salt which isn't assault at all but a compound of salt and other minerals it can be relaxing bath. But what you probably don't know. Is that EPSOM? Salt CAN HELP. Remove deep splinters. Put a cup of it in your bathroom slid for a Good Soak. The salt will help. Bring the splendor to the surface where you can use tweezers to pull it out so now when it comes to salt. Aren't you a smart cookie? Hungry in Nashville is brought to you by out of my pocket.

You've heard all the stories about being on the road with the band and how it's basically a drunken buccaneer. Well that may be true of some bands on some evenings. But I talk with Richard Jones yesterday and got a much different story. Richard has been a chef touring with many bands. Some of the biggest names in the the business and he told me that daily life on the road isn't like that it's tough work being away from home and the caterers make meals that not only tastes good but create a comfortable atmosphere there.

"Choice of equipment is is important in the tanks from the brew pub. Just weren't going to cut it. That understanding comes from experience and seeing other small breweries make their own mistakes when those mistakes are made good used equipment comes up for sale. Sometimes you've got brewers had outgrow their equipment so that is that's available for sale More Times than not what you have is a Burrito. Worry that fail well. Are you buying those problems. Those production problems with that poorly designed equipment. When you're buying this used equipment? We I mean I I know of a Burrito that really close to him really good folks. They bought a failed brewery in in operated it for a year year and a half minutes now closed. They know enough to identify that there. was maybe some equipment problems but again you know I want to get back to if you're GONNA do an on premise. which is brewery taproom? And it's just basically a big homebrew system. Because you know. Hopefully you're moving your beer fairly quickly. You know the the one mistake that some people make a by two biggest system. Tom And so you know my my tip for anybody that I really my tip for anybody in in any brew if if it's a new atomic newbury's opposed to expansion is plan on brewing. Less beer more often. Not More or less often. Beer is just like milk. It's GONNA to go bad. It has a little longer it has a longer shelf life the mill but not as much as one is much as most people think properly made beer made in n a ten million dollar brewery should last three to four months beer made in a half million dollar. Burri is probably the last three to four weeks depending on how how it's set up you can get longer life if you really aware and you really watch what you're doing you can get along the life out of it but it's always going to be sure Kim believes in brewing less beer more often because it allows the brew master Dubroux Better Peer and catch problems that may affect the taste. Sometimes a problem may mean tossing hundreds of gallons of beer down the drain and no brewer wants to pour beer out but if it doesn't meet Ken Standards. He's more than willing to do it. And does it cry overspill beer now really from my point of view. It does not the feeling that I get is. We dodged a bullet. We found out about it. Our quality controls our quality assurance worked. We found out before it got out in the beyond our control. And we're able to deal with it in by dealing with it. I mean we give it to the Metro Water and sewer department so that's to me. It's a relief and it's not I don't cry over me. I cry over it if it if it somehow got out. I assumed brewers must have labs to make consistent product but it turns out most of them. Don't spend the money and the health inspectors don't care because no pathogens can live in beer air although he's been brewing for quite a while can't believe there are plenty of things to learn and he doesn't miss an opportunity to visit another brewery. It puzzles him. Why more brewers don't stop by to see? His operation. Blackstone is one a lot of awards for its beer and has a great reputation in the industry. But it's rare for another brewer or to drop by and look for fresh ideas as I said he never misses a chance to learn from someone else. And that's what happened when he visited Colorado and got the chance to visit Odell Adele's brewery. I learned Tana stuff walking through that brewery seeing how someone else does it how they solve a particular problem picking the brains reins of of my buddy and in why other people don't do that on a wholesale basis. I don't know but it doesn't seem to happen. That much. Like this is an invitation So you know there's a point at which you you gotta be a little bit careful but But I take any inning. Every opportunity to get an A. Bere- I was At that same same at the same summit in I will use pretty much any method to do this. So Jeff Larson at is the owner of Alaskan brewing doing and he was at the technical summit. And he and Dave Wilson who's his One of the head guys at since it's Alaska it's hard so they weren't flying out same day and I knew that was because I was going to stay in. Do some nosing around hallways wanted to get into avery. which abors got a great tour thing and you can see everything? It's very very immersive In their silty Biden that I wanna down on the floor so to wrap up. Ken has been working for thirty thirty five years pouring a lot of his profit into buying the best ingredients and building quality brewery. What concerns me? Most is the competition from people. Who shouldn't the brewing business so the net result is turning awful? Lot of a lot of customers mean people that are coming into the industry or having some marginally marginally T- marginal too bad beer. We're turning them off. So ultimately we are going to compromise probably a natural growth pattern to any any reasonable business which all that means is. We're going to get back to that because all of this fluff all of this big stuff that we've had based on everybody buddy wanting to get into it's GONNA evaporate go way back to where we should have been to begin with anything else.

"The original plan for Compost Nashville called for it to everything from pickup. To the actual composting but the volume they were getting was too much compost. So the material is now taken elsewhere. Yeah so when we started out we had the desire to do the whole process from start to finish. We tried to compost as well as collect and we learned real quick. That there's a lot that goes into composting properly and into managing the volume that we were receiving so we ended up about six months in partnering with another local business called the compost company. And they're based out of Ashland City Tennessee and so we we started taking everything to them. They process it out there at their facility. You know we have a relationship with them we we pay to give them material and get material back from them and they get a feedstock feedstock from us and it's been a nice symbiotic relationship so we basically just hall at this point. We provide the the access to easily compost. And then we take it to a place as for you that takes care of it. So how does he pay for this GIG. It's a service based business so for residential customer. It's thirty five dollars a month become by once a week make disappear and give them soil back twice a year early spring early fall to use in their gardens and then for commercial customers. The price varies depending on on their volume. People are doing it because they care That's the main motivator for sure and hopefully one day there will be some kind of incentive for restaurants monetarily to participate. Maybe a tax write off. We have a couple of customers that save money commercially because they've reduced their dumpster bills but overall overall waste management republic. They're so large. They're cheaper than us. You know inherently so switching us they can lower that bill a little bit so it's not a complete elite like additional cost as long as they take the time to to to lower their dumpster. Bill there are lots of other composting projects Nashville including the national resources. Assist Defense counsel even some restaurant tours for getting into the act. There's a local restaurant tour. seem persad harassment. It's called meal and she. She has started a not for profit called resource capture and she is working on having a drying aerobic digestion which would be another facility? Zillow that would process organic waste turned into a renewable resource. Actually in her case it would turn out only into finished compost but it would also create Generally compressed natural natural gas or some form of electricity process in the material as well. So there's a lot of things already happening here that the NRDC found very interesting and so that spawned the creation of the Nashville food waste initiative. And so we've been having stakeholder meetings over the past two or three years where the NRDC comes in and helps us from from a grassroots is level. They they've been very adamant about not wanting to come in and tell us what to do because we know our city best and so they've just come in to be kind of guides to help facilitate conversation in here in Nashville order up Beatles passionate about what he does and the story of how he got into it starts in Guatemala. He graduated from college and wanted to learn. Spanish you've figured the best way to do that is to immerse himself in in it. He also learned about poverty and how that impacts families and country with his tour was finished he came back and moved in with musician. Friend in Birmingham Ming Ham. That eventually led him to Nashville twists and turns ensued including the death of one of the people. Who's going to start a composting project and house? Like well what do we do now said Jeremy and this other Guy Mica who ran a company back in Beckton called Maples. Bloom it was Organic Ganic Heart Scape landscaping company him. Jeremy have been buddies for a long time and they had both had this idea for a compost pickup service business and neither one of them had had the time or the energy to start. It and Jeremy reached out to Mike is like hey this guy is moved here to start this business and Phil Phil through. How about this other thing? We've we've been talking about and so we all three got together over lunch. One day and decided start compost Nashville and I was going to be the guy that was doing everything because they they both have fulltime businesses already. So that's how it started in April two thousand fourteen. They both had one customer of their businesses. That was like yeah. I'd pay for that. And so we started with talk to customers paying twenty five dollars a month and I was working a part time job at the Apple Store and started picking up once a week. People's compost in little five five. Gallon pickle buckets in my Toyota Camry so here. We are five years later. Businesses growing and Beatles learned how to run a business. His Passion for the work is pretty he clear but what's the motivation for his customers. I think a lot of them come to because they think it's the right thing to do. And they know it's the the right thing to do and they don't WanNa wait for someone else to do it for them to make it mandated for example like they've had design l.. Wester her other places up North Sea. I think that's a huge part of it I think it's also over the past year and a half two years become much more of a prominent conversation piece as in our culture you know the the. US government said Food Ruction goal fifty percent by twenty thirty. I mean having the country say that this is important to us and And then all these different companies popping up and the different different things like the NRDC in the national food waste initiative and these are happening all over. And I think people kind of knows something's gotTa give And there's a lot of people that have this desire to move back towards a better connection with our food in our land in systems and community and I think this all ties into that so I think there's this bigger movement going on this is a part of and I think people want to see that happen also our young people people in high school and just coming out of college in getting their first jobs. Especially some of these companies here in Nashville. That we've we've seen is like the the demand comes from the people working in the in the business. It's not necessarily from the top down all the time it's like. Hey like these young people care they WANNA see a change and so you know. We'll have the offices we work with came from someone on a green team that was like. Hey we wanna do this and they bring us in we talk and then they run it up the ladder and get it pushed through make it happen earlier. I mentioned that Compos Nashville also picks up waste from homes. It's not available all over the metro area area but a trip to the website will give you the details. It costs about thirty five dollars a month and you get compost back twice a year that you can use in your own garden nor donated the two initiatives that can use the soil. A huge amount of food waste comes in from the consumer like a lot of people buy food that goes bad. Throw move all had it happen. You know you buy that big thing. Yeah of spring lettuce mix or whatever and you have to salads and then you're like crap. I can't eat that fast and I still don't understand to this day. I've never if if someone please let me know the recipe that uses a whole bunch of Cilantro and there are simple things we could do that. Do make a difference. I have a tupperware. A pyrex container container with a LID. That lives under my driver's seat so when I go to a restaurant and I have leftovers I walk out to my car I grab it come back in but my leftovers in it and we're good one of our employees she. She takes around bamboo reusable for knife spoon and then like a little Napkin that she wraps them up in so she doesn't take to go silverware. Plastic little things. You can do to make a big difference because you know it's it starts on the individual level really. I mean we've all gotta data individually decide to make these choices if they're going to spread make a bigger impact so we were finishing up our conversation and I asked beetle. If there's anything else I should. I know I'll give one more. Ask One ask the I ask was to say noto plastic bag. The second ask would be too when you go out to eat any restaurant you go to ask them if they compost. You know one. Just put it on the radar that Oh our customers asked about this. It's important and then to if they say yes telling thank you because right now. They're paying money to do something that they don't have to do. It's much cheaper for them to throw it away and so so it really helps for them to hear that what they do matters to you. You'RE GONNA finish that salad. No I brought my bowl with me just dump it in there anything else. Okay come back soon. Hungry in Nashville is brought to you by out of my pocket productions and his copyrighted twenty nineteen by me.

"I'm Jim grinstead and I'm hungry Nashville. Let's see a study at Harvard University founded in the. US We throw away forty percent of our food. Ooh Yeah you heard me right forty percent. That's one point three billion todd. What's more that food? That's thrown away. Contributes seven percent of the the world's greenhouse gas emissions a some of this food include that left and farmers fields if you're harvesting corn and is the harvesting machine moves through the field. Some ears are going to be missed. There's no value in going back to get it so it's plowed back into the ground before next year's crop is planted but that has the same same problem is putting food into landfills food rots and releases methane gas adding to the problems. We already have with climate change. There are things we can do do. That's where beetle comes into the picture by the way beat elicit is real first name but everyone calls him that so I'll do the same. Well we work with Like I said homes apartments condos and then we also worked with restaurants today at this point we have about seven hundred fifty residential the accounts in about seventy commercial accounts so those are the numbers but as far as like volume of waste. The restaurants produce a lot more material than the residential potential customers in in comparison. So I would say maybe like sixty to seventy percent of our material comes from those restaurants and the rest comes from owners Louis. C. We'd take pre and post consumer so before it goes out to the customer and also wants. It's hit their plate if they don't finish it as something that we can take in compost as well. Every ship has the different level of where that's at different restaurants have different levels of chefs in different qualities and You know there's a lot a lot of waste leftover. It's really the amazing what does get wasted. No no no chef wants to waste food because that's one food that can feed somebody into its money for the for the restaurant. I mean straight out the gate you have all the stuff that's not quote unquote edible like your peelings from your onions. Your potatoes and the parts you cut off the meat that aren't good and the bones loans and coffee grounds for example and then we don't district food waste. We take anything that is organic material. That can be composted so that that soil paper towels IOS Napkins waxed paper boats. That people serve fries in and stuff. Not all restaurants composting but you can see a list of beetles restaurant on customers on his website. Compost Ashfield Dot Org. You could also sign up to have waste picked up to your home in composted but we'll get into that more later. Yes so for restaurants we use mainly sixty five gallon role carts so they're very similar to your your city trash recycling if you live in the Metro area that provides for you beige-and-green cans that you're used to two wheels on the flop top the ones you have at home or ninety six gallon ours or sixty five. So they're they're about two thirds it's the size of those home containers and the reason being is food waste is very heavy when especially when You know concentrated like that so our our bins can a full. Ben Can weigh anywhere from three hundred to four hundred pounds sometimes more so in those bins are necessarily built for that every now and then every now and then we lose a bin but Axel breaks or something because it's not happy with the weight but we provide the restaurants with those and then we usually do a site visit early on and give them suggestions for how to collect material indoors. 'cause there's been typically live outside and we have some solutions we provide but we've found that typically every every chef has you know their kitchen the way they want it and they have a vision for how they WANNA collect that material inside but So they collected somehow inside. And we we do we do sell. Compass will bag liners news that people can put in their standard trash cans. The staff is taking out quote unquote taking out the trash like normal at night. 'cause that's one thing is like especially introducing a new the system into a restaurant or any Brennan anywhere really like the least amount of change that can be involved makes it easier to adopt. 'cause you know in a restaurants nobody likes taking out Trash and so if they have this like big sloppy nasty bucket of food ways to carry out and dump into this been versus just grabbing a bag like normal and taking it out makes. It's easier on them. The frequency varies depending on each restaurant. What their desires? Are you know minimum. Once a week we have a couple of customers that are three times a week. This really depends on their volume and their space situation. You know how many bins can they fit there and so there's a lot of different things that go into consideration with that but twice a week tends to be the standard for most people just because we live in the south. It's hot that stuff. Sit Out for a week can get can get a little little ripe so we usually try to steer people George twice a week just just for convenience factor on making sure that they haven't enjoyable experience with the service..

"Aren't you a smart cookie. The fact that you're listening to this program tells me that get your intelligent curious and ready to learn new things so take your seat with the rest of the class and let's get right to today's topic You've been to restaurants featuring dueling pianos. Make your own von. Doer make your own pancakes. I'm here to tell tell you that you ain't seen nothing today. We're talking about unusual restaurants. Let's start in Hamburg Germany with a restaurant called the roller coaster her there are several of these around the world but not in the US. Here's how it works. You place your order using a digital menu. The chat while your food is being prepared when it's completed the player goes onto one of seventeen lifts where moves on rails and travels throughout the restaurant ending up in front of you. The same happens for others at your table. The restaurant has won several awards but none of them for food. If you want to eat while moving and don't WanNA murder mystery train ride the head to dinner in the sky and event which has been held in forty countries including Las Vegas. When you arrive for dinner you're strapped into a seat at a table several tables tables with other diners in the whole thing sits on a platform which then lifted nearly fourteen stories in the air by a crane chefs serve food from a kitchen on the platform platform while you enjoy drinks and wine? There's even live music from a DJ or performers. I have no idea what it costs to dine on one but I suspect if you have to ask the question question. It's not likely you'll be dining in the friendly skies. Our next restaurant is Odin Warr in Toronto. When you come in the door you order some drinks. Thanks Peruse the menu and place your order. You are then lead into a dining room your lead because the dining room was pitch black. You can't see anything services versus provided by blind or sight impaired staff need to take a Whiz of several will guide you out and back in you can order board drinks and food and for the truly adventurous you could order the chef's choice. You'll have no idea what's going to landed in front of you. Dishes include filet Mignon Vegetable stir-fry shrimp risotto with mushrooms and garlic and much more a three course package costs forty four Canadian dollars. A glass of wine runs about eight fifty. McDonald's now comes up on our list. Here's a flying saucer restaurant in Roswell New Mexico. That's area fifty one territory in Bangkok. You could have dinner at the cabbage in condoms. The original idea for the restaurant was to promote family planning the restaurant guarantees that there will not make you pregnant. There's the black antra trying to New York th- includes black ants and many of its dishes along with other other multilegged creatures. I used to live in Milwaukee and there is a great place to bring out of town friends. It's called the safe house built around the spy thing. The place has winding passageways and lots of out of the way booze to plan your next mission. You'll never find the place unless someone tells you about it. There's only a sandwich board sign. I now front the reads. International Exports Limited inside the doors a desk with the person behind it. You'll need to know the password to get in or go through a series of tests to find out if you're a friendly spy. Yes I know the password but no I'm not going to tell you now. We're going to end with the. Taiwan restaurant called the modern toilet as you've no doubt guest. This is a bathroom themed restaurant. Toront- imagine eating swirled ice cream from a miniature toilet or order a third sub sandwich help out a nice cup of diarrhea cocoa. Food food is served a miniature toilets urinals or whatever bathroom items seem to match the dish personally. I think a great addition to the new would be a hot brown so now when it comes comes to eccentric restaurants. You're smart cookie.

"Say aren't you a smart cookie. The fact that you're listening to this program tells tells me that you're intelligent curious and ready to learn new things so take your seat with the rest of the class and let's get right to today's topic in the wine snob at the table turns up her nose at the cabernet. The self professed foodie complaints that the salad is too bitter. They may be obnoxious but they may be correct at least for their tastes they just might be super. Tasters super tasters or a portion of the population relation that tastes flavors more intensely than the rest of us super tasters make up around twenty five percent of the population and women are more likely to be super tasters than men around fifty percent or average tasters and the rest are non tasters. Those are people who experienced less flavor in food. It all comes down to your tongue in the number of taste buds on it. Those budge the home for taste receptor cells. Your regular run of the mill person has fifteen to thirty five bud into the six millimeter area the tongue super tasters have thirty to sixty and non tasters have fifteen or fewer super tasters can be a pain in the acid picky eaters. They typically don't like bitter foods and stay away from broccoli. Spinach brussels sprouts turnip some bitter greens when they encountered these foods they tend to add salt fat sugar to them and their tastes are all alike. Some won't like that others. Don't like sweets. Super tasters are less is likely to be smokers or overweight. Some super tasters don't like alcohol. The research shows that some some ways are super tasters. It has less has to do with their tastebuds and more the practice and experience they have in tasting wine when chefs are super tasters. It could be a problem for you a lot upscale restaurants don't put salt and pepper on the table believing that the food is left the kitchen properly season. If that chef has not a super taster in you are you'll likely you want salt and pepper if the chef doesn't like it. She should hold her tongue. Research suggests that most chefs are in the high end of medium. There are other downsides sides to being a super taster. They tend to eat fewer vegetables so they don't get those health benefits that also puts them at a higher risk for colon cancer. They have more salted or foods foods and that translates to a higher risk for heart disease. If your kid makes a fuss over some meals it probably has nothing to do with being a super taster or not. Children's taste buds grow less sensitive is age so later in life they may find and even embraced foods. They hated as a child at this point. You're probably probably wondering if you are a super taster not whether you are not depends largely on genetics but there's a test will help you figure it out and i'll put links to some of them. In the show notes votes they most often involved blue food coloring and having someone count the bumps on your tongue. You should do this with good friend and use mouthwash. We're we're told that most of tastes happens in the nose. So how does smell affects super tasters pretty much the same as everyone else smell is important but so is experience.

"You can definitely try out any kind of nut butter that you want here, the all work, I just personally, really love the classic peanut butter chocolate combo. And the reason that we're using coconut oil here. Is that the CB needs to find with something that has a high fat content in order to help absorb into the body so you can actually add the CD to the chocolate, or you can add it later to the nut butter, because Nassar also high in healthy fats? Again is can go into really anything. So just you gotta figure out what you want incorporate to see the in like I mean for a cinnamon rolls. I can mix it in to the DOE. I could also mix it into the sugar that I put in the dough as well as the butter that spread on it, so that it can be incorporated. Five six different things into one dish versus just I just put it in the DOJ, and keep the, the sugar, and the butter, separate and keep that just regular generally the medium dosage for persons fifteen to thirty milligrams. So it's really not that much. It's like let's say quarter of a penny mic marinate with oil so that you could like 'cause meat I mean it does. Have fat, but it's you know, tough so that you could kinda let us sit and so can generate in the beats or do the same thing with vegetables, Brian them. And that's the way it incorporated. There's also different forms of CB that you can use. There's like tinctures which was made of alcohol. There's a CD isolate, which is pretty much pure extracted. There's no ham oils or TC NS, which is pure city and it comes to, like, crystal inform. You just sprinkle it on food. Yeah. It really is that simple. He does very well with that. But it can work elsewhere. In a recipe harvest is part of the lab cana- family, which grows its own crops, and processes them we have to farms in the area. There's one in the Lakers four caria, and then we've have just recently acquired, what is going to be in industry changing property with our plans for it, and it is, actually the largest farm, not just as far as hamper anything goes, but just the largest farm in the state of Tennessee, it's formerly known as grinder switch and about nineteen hundred acres. I believe it has been you. Used for everything from hunting expeditions to crop growing crops. Hay corn soy on and on. And we are going to turn it into the largest farm, and I think in the region, but our farms being lined up the way that they are. And with wear harvest is we are hoping to eventually turn this highway one hundred here in to the him. Highway Kentucky has the bourbon trill. We would like to have the ham highway where we, you know, have tours so people can meet here at harvest have some infused food, and drink. Get on a bus. Go out to the farm. See how it's grown go out to the production facility, which is in Centerville. See how it is produced into its various forms of consuming it, and then back here for, you know, some education class, maybe as more food and drink just I phone with a lot of fun. The fact that, you know, you're going to get a medical benefit on the other. End of while something great tasting, it's much more rewarding. And then just to see on everybody's faces as well. Hungry.

"Come from Hamburg Germany? Well, not so much ground, beef shaped patties did originated Hamburg, but it was called the Hamburg steak and it came without a bun after that your guesses as good as anyone else's as to how hamburgers came into being, there's credible evidence that the Hamburg steak may have been served on a slice of bread there also reports of such thing being served around the same time in Boston in Chicago, there at least four other claims of where and win the hamburger was created. Now, the original was called Hamburg steak, we need to address the issue of steak burgers, those came about in about nineteen twenty and in the nineteen thirties, the steak burger debuted at stake in shakes first location in normal, Illinois. The burger was made up from strip from the T bone steak and sirloin. Most of us know hamburgers because of the Thura of fast food restaurants. That populate ways by the way, the industry doesn't. Like the term fast food it prefers quick service restaurants. I'm not sure who they think they're fooling. But there you are. But back to hamburgers worldwide informal eating out is about a one trillion dollar industry of which seventy five percent is fast food of that seventy five percent. Mcdonald's claims eleven percent that works out to about seventy five hamburgers sold every second in India, cow, meat does a Golder well, with a large portion of the population so you can walk into a McDonalds in India and get the McCurry pan a bread bowl filled with chicken curry in France. You can get a croak Magoo kind of like a croak, Madame around seventy one percent of all beef sold in America's for burgers. And there are an estimated fifty thousand burger joints in the US. The semi you want to make great burgers at home. There's a host of advice on how to do it a great burger starts with great meat. And the recommendation is for eighty percent meat to twenty percent fat go at any leaner than that. And the burger just won't hold together when it comes to seasonings simply salt and pepper seems to be the favourite, soap you should probably stick with that. There are different ways you could make a petty, mostly you grab a chunk of hamburger and flatten it, but don't pack too tightly or it'll be tough. Once you've made the Patty's some advise that you pop them in the fridge for at least fifteen minutes or so, to firm them up. Then there's the question of the dimple, the thinking is that if you use your thumb to press down in the center of the burger creating a dimple than the burger won't rise so much that you can't put all the other stuff on top. When it's time to cook, get a pan. Scorching hot cast iron seems to be the favourite, then dropped the patties into it, then leave them alone. Don't. Press on them. Don't look underneath just give them time to Brown and get a nice crust. When you've got that flipped him over and cook them to your desired level of done this. Now, if you wanna diner hamburger, you should forget nearly everything I just told you when you're ready to make your burgers, roll the meat into little balls drop those into your scorching hot Skillet with butter and garlic than press them down with your spatula, get a really solid crust on them and flip them over regardless of the method. If you wanna cheeseburger, and who wouldn't put the cheese on when you flip the burger, then covered with the stainless steel bowl trap to heat. The cheese will go all melting. So now when it comes to hamburgers, you're a smart cookie.

"Hi, welcome to hungry. Nashville may I take your order. This is the. This is. So you want to go to culinary school, so you can be the next food network star, fat chance Bucko as today's guests will tell you culinary school gives you some basic skills. But where you really learn to cook in the kitchen where you'll put in lots of hours for mediocre pay just to learn from that chef, but you're not done yet. You need to go. Learn under another chef then another, then maybe you could advance the head chef after a few years of that. You may be qualified to open your own restaurant or catering business. My name is Dr Paul Brennan, on the director of the reindeer Rayburn school of culinary arts. Hostile tourism management here at Nashville state community college in Nashville, Tennessee, in addition to a boatload of experience in a PHD Paul has quite the alphabet behind his name. He's a w CMC master chef a certified executive chef and has been certified by the American cool Inari association. He recently was as. Asked by food network do participate at a competition. He hasn't decided yet, he believes those who will succeed are those who are disciplined enough to do the job and don't make excuses for being late or not finishing their work on time as he says the show will still go on detail oriented, extremely Dettori detail, oriented dedicated driven not afraid to work were an industry that, you know, there is a place for everyone in it. Pending on how much money you wanna make kind of drive you towards what's end to go into, if you to work Monday to Friday, seven to three, no nights. No weekends. No holidays. There's a place for you. Are you gonna make the same amount of money who someone who's running the largest hotel in that city? Not even in the same ballpark, usually to get to get paid. Well as cook you need to go into the places that make money, the more money, the facility makes in the food side. Traditionally, hopefully the better you'll get paid usually nightshift pays better than day shift because dinner cost more than breakfast. So, you know, really all depends on quality life in same respect. There is a place for everyone. But this industry is not for everyone. A lot of people come in not realizing what it is. Even if you're considering culinary school, I recommend, go get a part time job and business I because it's not as now what you see on television, that's TV. I related to and parents come in and students come in, you know, like, well, I want to do this. I Mike have you ever been to a restaurant had to wait in the line? And I go, what's the longest wait all couple of hours downtown. I now magin you're the cook in the kitchen. You gotta make all the food for those people that are waiting in line, and it gives them a different perspective. It's almost like being a construction worker. It's hot days are long. You're lifting your polling. There's no such thing as I'm showing up wait around calling out sick. The show doesn't the show goes on, whether you're there or not. So you need to make sure you're there to be able to keep your job, so you have your certificate or degree, lots of experience and finally ready for the big time with all the fame and money that goes with it to make a hundred thousand dollars a year as shot if you're the equivalent of a Tennessee titans football player, the average cook and Nashville is only making around fourteen dollars an hour. The best cooks, the Nashville are probably when you're making on nineteen dollars an hour, a lot of people. I think that they're gonna come to our industry and make a lot of money you can but not in the beginning, it takes time and dedication, it's learning craft even when students come to culinary school. We try to instill in them as we go through the process with them when you come out you're going to be a qualified line cook, not a chef yet. Chefs title, you earn and it takes time to earn it culinary school's gonna give the students Dacian where they come out. They'll have a good skill set. We'll be qualified to going to be a line cook to run the kitchen, you need to know how to work all the stations, plus human resources, fuss profit and loss statements, scheduling marketing, you know, there's a lot of components that you learn as you go through the career that you don't get in school in school will talk about a profit and loss statement when you get out into the business, you're really using real money and real profits in real office. So. So it just takes time and experience. If you don't have the time if you don't have the time in or the experience, chances are you'll get terminated pretty quick because owners are owners own restaurants to make money not to lose money. And if you're losing money for them, you're not gonna have a job very long. Okay. You're not going to get rich. But you'll get a chance to be creative. Right. Recipes and show, the chef what you can do everything. Here's follow the recipe culinary school, in my opinion is very, very much should be in a box. We're teaching how to cut how to saute how to grill to rose things properly, as they get out and get exposed to the different foods, the different cultures two different restaurants, though. Start creating a Rolodex. And that's when I start getting creative on it come to culinary school autumn, think they're creative, but they haven't learned the essence behind how different herbs worked together how this when seasonings react to each other one, you put dry seasons in Chile, proper chilly, from Texas, that win the world championships, tell you, it's a three stage to beginning the middle and right before. Serve at. It doesn't all go into beginning, you know, it's just having to get out there and see it and understand it. And then in time, they'll get creative, I even after with my instructors got to remind them culinary school has nothing to do with creativity. And it's nothing against the students it's just they don't know enough yet some of the stuff like kitchen finals, this week, some of the stuff my instructors will taste if they let the students get creative. You never know you know, we joke all the time from people and can I count one coming come have lunch at the school got ETA's with the Fs and the only way, you know, it's an as the taste and the only new way. No, it's an F is to tasted that he can't spit it out in front of the student. Either way. In addition to knife skills, and basic techniques to instructors, also train the students palette. You don't train a palette you develop it as you grow. I'm it's kind of, like thinking of baby when a baby comes in the world, everything's brand new. So as a as a child grows through Atta leci- in adulthood, they start to see things understand things. Able to decipher. It's the same way with the power. Their palate will grow as they grow the more things they become exposed to the more. They're polit will be used to when we get students and culinary school. They usually have pretty limited palettes because if they're coming out of high school, the probably creature habit. You know, I like cheese pizza or Iowa. No can't cheese on broccoli kind of thing. So when they get out into the industry, you know, as they hopefully go around and work in different cultures in different cities, in different countries, they're exposed to more and more things. And that's how they developed their pallet, if they pretty much stay in one area and work in one kind of restaurant, that's all that's all they're gonna know, but the more they can get out. See tastes. Eat smell feel go to the farm. Try tomato right off the plant verse go into a grocery store at having tomato. It's a completely different experience. There's also another thing that's crucial to being a success in the food business. And when we come back, you'll hear all about it. Doing

"Hi, welcome to Hungary Nashville may I take your order. The goal of this podcast is to introduce you to the people you rarely get to meet, but are important to putting food on your table. The farm is where it all begins today. You'll meet a man who has run bottom few farm in Portland to see for nearly sixty years around two thousand seven he began growing strawberries and rather than harvest his own crop. He opted to let customers pick their own. I'm Ralph cook. Eighty years old been here, all Malala in farming like Idi other business. Things changed a lot over fifty years. He told us the story of what changes he had to make while we were in the bottom view farm restaurant. Well, I was in the dairy business. I I've worked ten years for the post office in Portland and tried to get on gray Dave for years and couldn't follow the agreed that me on in nineteen fifty eight oh sixty nineteen sixty day got on grey day. And then we mill the two thousand and seven. And we sold that part of the farm, and was already doing what we're doing here as just Massana nigh. So we thought it was best maybe to get rid of their in devote, all of our time, this, and the tobacco buyout come along about that time. We got out of that. So I don't know what year we started raising strawberries, but had strawberries, and apples and peaches and blackberries, and blueberries, and we've kinda put a restaurant together here on the farm, and we do weddings and birthday parties. And this kind of stay busy being dairy farmer has its own problems animals need to be fed milked intended, all day, long rain or shine. The techniques used for growing strawberries are skills that must be learned. I went to strawberry association meeting and an Arkansas couple three times to try to learn as much as I could. Could about the strawberries and a meta Mamba naming Jim Goodson from Damascus Arkansas, and he was really helpful. I mean sometimes when you start doing something people view us competitive, and I don't tell you very much. But him being an Arkansas man Tennessee, it didn't seem to matter with him. And, and I don't well I could ever made it without him or not. He really helped me a lot. Ralph said, one of the most important things he learned was which varieties of strawberries to grow stay with Chandler, strawberries. He said, the we never have tried any other variety till this year. We put out some sweet Charles and some camera Rosa's. But you'll wives, he said, the if you're going to try to make money out of them, you need to stick with channels, and that was probably the best advice he ever gave me not be tinkering around with little Bill thing, once the berries are ripe to have to sell quickly, or they will go bad for Ralph surplus berries. Go to nearby nursing homes or those in need farmer in another state had a different idea. He loaded up his truck with. Surplus berries and headed for Portland where he planned to sell them. Cheap server years ago was confronted with strawberries coming from another state year that they had a abundant supply, and they was going to be cheap after the got the Portland, Tennessee. And they said, what are you going to do? Are you going to try to compete with the price? And I said, I can't compete with the price, but I can compete with the taste if you want something good. They, you got gotta stay away from that. If you don't care what you eaten than just go buy something cheap. Ralph has four acres of strawberries that will soon open for pickers to get to this point. He started last year. The type strawberries, we raise, that's, that's the bad part Rutter. It. They're just a one year deal. We set us the last week in September, and then we'll use most of the time, we'll start picking around the twenty fifth of April, which is up Minna days away. And sometimes we have picked strawberries for six weeks. Strawberry is depends on the weather. They don't like real hot weather. Once it gets ninety something degrees. It really makes it hard on them and that'll help them long round the first June, maybe even sooner causes a predict a ninety five year in a day, at the then this soon as though we get rid of the plants work ground and start all over give. Sometimes he'll double crop. The strawberry fields at simply planning another crop. Once the strawberry season is done every few years. He'll move as entire strawberry operation to different land and its place. Ralph. Oh, girl pumpkins, or other things such techniques. Help improve yield and that makes for a good year like this one on notice to well of this morning, a next seven days is still pretty good weather wise, one year. We had a bad freeze. Eighteenth day of April, killed nearly over things. So I've always had the falen if I can get by the fifteenth. I'm pretty good shape and. Looks like now the weather's good though the fifteen. So maybe it'll be good. University

"Hi, welcome to Hungary in Nashville may I take your order. Imagine that you own a distillery and your Brevard is well known and highly respected, a few months ago you released a four year old bourbon and the critics loved it. And that's your problem that a man Ford is high. But you don't have casts a four year old bourbon lying around. It takes time to age when you wanna make money now while demand is at its peak. What do you do? You call today's guest, Jeff hop. Maier-witt Brindamour here in Nashville, Brindamour, which means to toast in Italian really started out as an advisory firm for mergers and acquisitions and the adult beverage base covering wine, spirits distributors. Beer, things like that continues to do that, as well as providing Boca spirits around the globe to different brand owners that we work with sourcing is the business of coming up with spirits tailored to someone's needs. It may be a distillery. That's just starting. Out won't have its own product to sell for several years, or an established to still read that needs more of a specific type of spirit today, we're going to talk mostly about bourbon whiskey, because it's their main business, but Brindamour also sources to Keila Irish whiskey scotch and rum, primarily spirits at benefit from aging. I think they're two elements to the business. One is strategic sourcing, the material and the other is just giving good advice. That's it, where it were a connector, connecting lots of people for lots of the right reasons. I gave the elevator pitch. And I was at a hedge fund or something like that. I would say, we're merger and acquisition group that also does strategic sourcing. The bourbon is up so crazy right now because of the marketplace so that takes a lot of it. And it took a lot of time in focus from us, and it's really easy to close, you know, because he bite me selling and do it in the day doing minutes, the emanate transactions take time to do diligence, and build presentations, and find the right parties on stuff. So I think it's really fun and really cool to be able to deliver on people's dreams. And so when you're able to put together some of those transactions introduce people to the right people can we're not a Bank. We're not a lawyer. We don't you have to go get your own lawyer and get your do your things, but we help and set it up did Kentucky owl which was a big brand, and to be able to deliver to Dixon deadman and his family. The check that they ended up getting at the end and the excitement. And the things they did with it, or, you know, watch some of these families that are risked, everything to get to where they are. Then to be able to just see them pay off the Goma guide. I just paid off my house, or I did this. And I did this is just the best feeling in the world. So that, that to me is, you know, what makes a really fun. Of course. None of that can happen without a marketplace. And like a real estate agent, Jeff helps bring buyers and sellers together. But we generally know what's out there, the sellers, come to us, and say, I've got X could you find a buyer for mayor? Do you know somebody that would take this? And then we reach out to some people that we know are looking for, like, we know today, one of the top three liquor companies in the world is looking for seven hundred thirty barrels of three year old with a specific mash, Bill and it has to be. Five years old by certain month and year to fit into their program. So we get that specific in it, and that kind of gives us a hunting license to put the pieces together and make them work, but on any given day, probably have access to a various ages in various bourbons probably twelve to twelve thousand barrels. I it's not necessarily an our inventory. But we know where it's at you may have heard some words in there that aren't familiar to you. So I'll take a moment to explain a mash Bill is the permitted mix of grains, that will be used to make whisky grains are typically corn ri- weed or barley mixed different combinations. And percentages. The filtered mash is what's used to create the whisky, a Rick houses, where the barreled whiskey is stored the buildings allow air to flow through so barrels get cold in the winter and hot in the summer. The temperature changes move. The whiskey in and out of the wood giving the whiskey. It's color. And flavor timing is also a factor. If a distillery wants to release four year old whiskey, but it doesn't have enough, the whiskey it needs to buy must not only be four years old. But it was crossed that Mark on a specific day or month so it can be mixed with its own stock, as you can imagine the more specific request the higher the price tends on the mash, Bill and the age in which you're looking for. So if you're looking for twelve year old bourbon today could be six thousand dollars a barrel. If you're looking for new make it could be. Sudden under the nine hundred depending on Nashville's. Jeff
