Your Biggest Hair Dilemmas, Solved With Herbal Essences Spokesperson Bridget Brager

"Yeah. So well, it is the fall now bridget and I feel like our facebook chat room like when we were talking about hair to some of our listeners in there there was a lot of discussion just about like resetting for fall and there was a lot of questions about like these common like dilemmas that we kind of are faced with when we finally take our hair out of. A top not in September and we're looking at her hair condition. So let's get started. We wanted to tackle some of those challenges with you today. So the first one is frizz which I think you know a lot of people can relate to and so first of all, why does it happen and then what is it about like certain hair types being more prone to Frizz than others? Heroines really for us as it becomes more damage and the more damaged hair becomes the more access lunch. So it really sucks up the moisture air the humanity, and that causes the hair shafts swell inching of stand on in and that's Frizz generap. FRIZZ. It's super important to us singer nourishing and moisturizing so that it acts as a barrier which mean he elements in your share mean my hair using residents it's and it's fine by color treatment hair less damage. But for for women with curly hair as their share begins to Pearl, the cuticle lists a little bit national thing happened. So they're from those with Philly hair owned friends. So it's all about really driving moisture into the hair own on keeping minutes. From. Okay. So we're GONNA talk about some hacks, but I like, what's a product that you're loving right now to reduce says I'm a firm believer that you using rations in commissioners is critical. It lays the foundation for your best hairstyle AWA- founder the red carpet fascination in that kind of where it starts in the shower. My absolute. Champion conditioner is the Herbal Essences Allah and Chin Selection. In sulfate free, Aloe is Subaru Charities Alice full of vitamins that by essential moisture is also super good for your scalp. We want to take into consideration how we treat our ourself just like we think about our skin face now it's at. Really interconnected and what about the the temperature of the water because I've heard that if it's hot like if it's too hot, that can bring on the phrase. Is kind of something I always recommend my clients before we are doing on the red carpet just do water minutes after conditioning your hair as cold as it can go right as you can get. The always do that in the salon I'm like, Whoa. The difference right especially after caller you know after you've gotten your done they don't WanNa fit hot water in because the molecule we'll just slip right out and they're doing we're doing everything close you. So that's the basically the number one takeaway here bridget that I'm hearing is like with Frizz it's all about creating that barrier. So that's why the shampoo and conditioner are so important because it's GonNa be closing that cuticle down so you don't get that moisture seeping and I, guess I'm a big Fan of these rapid dry hair towels now I don't know. If I'm using the right but I've heard an they often claim that they prevent for as you think that's the case I do. So the micro fiber towels or Subaru gentle in the way that our traditional cotton towels are not cotton it's six up right and it catches the hair and it can fool they won the hair and also handed can can kind of go right in between where you're cuticle doesn't notice it wants to slap opener lay down or with a minor fiber towel you can get in there with it. Super Gentle on the hair. And it really lays everything down nicely absorbed so much water today were I actually just. Photo unused micro fiber I'll sorry Mike each.

A bunch of trepidation about the big high powered corporate lawyer running this music festival. Yes. Oh how much of that? Did you encounter and like how you get around it or work through it? I still get that. Honestly. A number will be we met a while back in and I think I. Think People were surprised me look I I. Don't know I'm not gonNA stop knocking to try to not be myself. I am what I do to eight. I think I have a decent credibility in what I told people is just in a state of my intent and the core mission is festival and I think that that's going to ring true but I think it did take. It took a couple of years. It took. It took a couple years for people to come to the festival Nazi banners on stage. And they say well, has business model where you see your so-called Businessperson while we takin corporate dollars and we matched that with personal donations, we make sure all the ours are paid. We run a really skinny. Expense side of our business and then we had forty thousand dollars leftover that we donated using organizations in our city that even one hundred dollars is amazing. We donate forty thousand dollars so. But so the point is yeah, there's corporations involved but those corporations are not going to be front and center that if you WanNa be successful in Philly at least in the diy seen that kind of rub going to just says a outsider fan. you need to do things a certain way and I think.

I know. I kinda rose into my question. My next question which was going to be is there any type of? Corporation that you will not allow to be a part of this or is it just like? Hey, if you guys got money will will show you in there. You know that's interesting. Question I mean I haven't crossed that yet..

Cardi B SLAMS Candace Owens After She Calls Her an 'Illiterate Rapper'

"It's blowing up right now. So this is candace owens versus Cardi B. and not just doing this to be silly I. Did they actually got into something kinda substantive here it started when. Canvas was on Ben Shapiro's Sunday special. Let's take look the clip. I completely agree with your assessment about Cardi B. It is one of the biggest insult if Black Americans are not insulted by the fact that Joe Biden who has been hiding in his basement you know for the entire year maiden appear to come up because he was going to do an interview with Cardi B.. We we have nothing better to offer. I. Mean this be tend to. Donald Trump saying I'm going to give no. Interviews, but he came up and he decided to give an interview to Justin Bieber right I mean I wish I actually just be I'm sorry. I know you are a Christian Man I. Don't want to put you in the same boat as Cardi B. but it it would be absurd white America would go what what is this why? Why are you being interviewed by Justin Bieber and it's because you're pandering right? You're pandering you look at Cardi's instagram easy. She has millions of followers and you think. Okay. This is an illiterate person, and if I if I appeal to this a person and she does a group like she literally did in the middle of this interview, they think she's cool. She's hip just by sitting here and and taking this interview walking will vote for me. It's basically saying black people you are stupid. You are dumb and you're so foolish I mean do you think what if she just said in the middle of the interview Joe Biden? Can you name one Cardi B. Album? Not Jimmy favor just one Cardi B. Lyric. He couldn't do it. Of course he's not because he's being handled and they're saying black people like this person this is what they're into, and so here you go talk to her. Okay. So Cardi, b. e. then heard what candy said and she hit back she did a couple of videos I think four videos on instagram shows on camera, but you could hear her talking in the exact quote that she said she's talking about. Canvas she says, she has an identity crisis just because she is black doesn't mean she gives a F- about blacks and you can hear also saying the candidates owns husband George. as part of a group that she like into an upper-class kkk of the UK now first off. I was at Atkinson in Georgia's wedding George a great guy they are a fantastic couple. The wedding was one of the most spectacular weddings I've ever been to and it was just filled. With love and there were black people and white people and there were straight people and gay people and there were Republicans and Democrats, it was it was a truly just a just an absolutely wonderful wedding with with a meeting of Families George comes from an upper class family in the UK. Candice comes from Philly from mostly lower middle class family and that everybody was just dancing and having a great time. So this nonsense from Cardi, B. But anyway, that's what her. Take on what candy said was, and then you know candidates. So she's not just going to sit there and take it. So campus followed up with a couple tweets and I'm going to read to you she said Malcolm X. warned us years ago about the puppetry of interviews like Cardi B. and Joe Biden, he always spoke out against the White Liberal game of using entertainers pawns. This isn't really about you Cardi B. This is about black America Waking Up to Democrat racism. She went on and another tweet to say never listened to a person that has private security but once the public police defended never listened to a millionaire that made it here in America but trashes our country. These Hollywood idols are frauds leading sheep down paths they never took when they discovered success. So so candidates makes what I think are pretty cogent salient points and Cardi B. Then jumps back in. Cardi visas well, paying taxes is something that as much as I hate, it's a reality I will always have to pay but I rather might tax money go to free education than police funding use my money on something useful your president us our tax money to fund is empty camp in ruts. So trump uses his campaign a. Uses the tax money to fund his campaign is that is that right? Well, can't jump back in and said one your tax dollars or ready to go already go to free education. Jesus. That is true to know campaign uses tax dollars for funding. That is illegal that is also true and three defunding police initiatives has led to two hundred percent increases in black men getting shot in inner cities stop supporting black people dying.

Mat Hancock defends "Homophobe and Misogynist" Tony Abbot

"There are reports that Tony Abbott who is Australia's prime minister between two, thousand, thirteen and two, thousand and fifteen is being lined up to work alongside the British International Trade Secretary Liz Truss. The appointments not been made official yet, but it is thought he would take a senior role negotiating Britain's exit from the European Union. However, there have been many objections with those opposed to the appointment claiming that Abbott is unfit to represent the UK due to his views on climate change and pass misogynist homophobic comments, his the Health Minister Matt Hancock being grilled on the matter by skies K. barely we need to have the best experts in the world in that working in that field. And as the former prime, Minister Australia. Obviously. Go huge amounts of experience even if it's a homophobic misogynist. Well I I I I think that that is I I don't think that's. True I Dave I haven't seen. It said he I'm sure you'd have to support some of his comments. He's a homophobe a misogynist well. He's also an expert in trade. Well joining me on the line from camera is Karen Middleton the political correspondent for the Saturday paper listening to that Toko cliff. And, of course, Karen knows a thing or two about Abbott. So is he a misogynist homophobic? Well I wouldn't call him both things, but he certainly has been cold those things in the past he's taking controversial positions and. Alpha Prime Minister Julia Gila misogynist effectively when she gave a now famous speech in the parliament suggesting that that she can take lectures on misogyny from men meaning ashish. And he wasn't in favor of the. Vote we had here in Australia on same sex marriage campaigned strongly against it and and was involved with some. Philly. strenuous an unpleasant protests against the Julia Gillard when she was prime minister in general that had fairly success language in it. So you know they certainly have been controversial positions in a number of people here have strong views for and against Mr Abbott, and we are enjoying the debate from afar that's going on in London.

Max Has NO FEAR FOR THE DEER + Nick Nurse ‘Coaching Clinic’

"That's not a bad shot wasn't a bad shopping to see not it was a bad shot. But how did they beat Philly? Was that a good shot? Just tell me that was was that a Nick nerve-wracking. This is the best coach you can do we need to Coalinga. Is that the best player you go? Okay. So this is what is what I wanted to hear from you mind me getting that. I mean running off the corner going all the way following the way from the three-point line that that was the way you designed. This is where I'm getting that thing. Okay. So then let's talk about that. Then ignorant didn't have a play lined up in that situation or at least we maybe didn't have the the player. Maybe maybe that's it. In my opinion. He said, you know what they figure things out up to this point. I'm going to let them just keep going cuz I have nothing and that's a problem that's off. Can't be that kind of Coach into play. I believe in this situation that Brad Stevens to me and although Nick nurse is the coach of the year. I like Brad Stevens home is a knows better now like next Nur Nick nurses X's and O's I think he is. I think he gets guys in places. They need to be and it has really worked out well for so so I don't I don't necessarily think that yeah, you want some people that call timeout. Okay, you can call timeout but now you give the other team opportunity to self esteem. So if I promise up until you come down to your file before guy gets into the act of shooting Mean there are a bunch of things. You can talk about that. You can't talk about on the flyer. So that's a good point because you if you're Brad Stevens, I'm telling my guys to foul. They needed three follow. Yeah, but they they going to do that. They did not going to do that because they didn't have that opportunity to think about it. They just play what time on the situation you have more time to think about. Absolutely so that maybe it's why Nick nurse doesn't call a time-out init work off. All you were trying to do is get a decent. Look at it three point shot got a decent Loop. Don't miss don't miss out on this one. It's your chance. You know, Cedric Maxwell says go down absolutely had to betonline.ag today and take advantage of all the great signup bonuses betonline.ag your online sportsbooks experts and it now I don't know man. just feel like when it comes down like you say like when it comes out and accessing those late-game situations, I'm taking Brad Stevens over over Nick nurse all day them, but when Nick nurse but some guy told me later on or off. Yeah, some guy told me the other day on the radio from Toronto said Nick nurses by the arrestee was a give him a clinic in coaching. Okay. Oh, I thought that goes but this is my thing with him. This beef with Nick you you played out that situation, right? It didn't pan out obviously depend on welfare. But you know, you played that card whatever it is what it is right off of 20 minutes later. So it was a microphone in your face and you're gonna complain about oh Jason Tatum got their free throw line too many times all the favors. I mean, excuse me, all the referees gave him that one come on and while you're trying to put up there and you're trying to put something in somebody's you're trying to put some because if it's not working you're down to well, you're trying to put your grabbing it whatever you can grab that actually the course of the year. You're trying that your job. Well, you're grabbing it what you can grab it. See I can really hasn't been that guy you know that said, oh my God, there's no way to stop. I'll come David Jaylen Brown has done a nice job. I'm just I sewing being one off. Woman with G acha you gotta yeah, and they haven't really had to double-team. That's true. So, you know what Jaylen brown hair but his defense has been underrated. How about the time that Jaylen Brown? I mean you're talking about quickness thought he ripped off calorie calories was dribbling and it was like stripping. Well, yeah look like look like brown was in The Matrix the way he went across and grabbed the basketball game. Carolina was sent he was going back the other way know when the ball on the floor you you ain't got it no more. I looked at him. Where did it go with so long? I mean, it's been it's been eye-opening to see some of the some of the situations and even now down that bubble people talk about or you know, what's going on with Milwaukee Milwaukee is trademark what they do. They give up three's what does what does Miami like to do? Oh you take the reason you're walking Milwaukee is given that more FAQ. To anybody else. So Miami's Forte there strip is shoot the three. Yeah. So if you ever team does knocking down threes in a regular area off and you you're struggling right now with, you know, Yiannis and Middleton and you know, they play great against the Celtics but they've had a you know, Jonas has been if they use the series honest is going to be exposed again time to time MVP. I agree with that. Well, the biggest reason why I agree with that is because you you got a 27-point performance out of Chris Middleton office and you couldn't make that a win like that's a big. Well somebody else involved in this. Well, that's what I'm saying. You know his Lopez involved. Where is Lopez build out. 1 game? Okay lower game loading again if off on your scores Seventeen eighteen, you're in trouble. Well, we're we're and that's the thing about picking up your teammates like somebody who's like Kimba. Okay. Kimball didn't was barely scored and Marcus fairly score. Yep. You had somebody else that kind of shoulder the load until those guys got it together and you look at blood. So what's blessed done during the series always been a little banged up. So I don't I don't trust them this man. This is obviously I've never been like like that's always in my thing Milwaukee. Yiannis is going to be honest, but I don't trust your boys like your squad is shaky Milton will give you those 30.93 here and there but need to make sure those are wins you can give those up Jerry has travels big man. I really like Miami and new series. I just like their Focus right now, too. Yeah. I totally agree. I think again to see to me, it's Jimmy Butler Factor. Yeah, because they those dudes right now bam alabado guys, like they're they're taking on that same Persona is Jimmy Butler like, you know jumping off. Yeah. I mean Jimmy brother man. I mean he said about when you asked about guests and family come into the bubble was you said he I'm not bringing anybody man. This is a business trip. Wow.

"Like a vet presence about him and I got so many. There's a humble looking out for me like I remember early on. He was telling this when I was still living affiliate.

Yeah he was he was Kinda got. Anybody listening. Doesn't know Chris. Cotton is philly comic who passed recently I didn't know a person but as you can see had impact a lot of people so check out his stomach as his funeral. It was just like over the great center. It was funny because I'm like all the comics spoke to all these great stories and then on the owner of the Raven Lounge he went up and spoke. It was like it. Seemed like you were just rambling. He wasn't talking into the Mike really good so like all. The comics boost gave him the light. So good so who somebody in Philly that you think is underrated. WHO's a comedian in Philly You're a big fan of that. Maybe not a lot of people have heard right now. Like coming up right now The Markets Lavar like I've been a markets. He took him to a few shows. America's We'll go coming up who you Big Fan of nationally nationally Of course the usual guys like Shapiro. Shapiro David David. Craig Yeah. His crowd workers crazy carrot top. Ah Let me see Kevin.

Did you guys like up anyway. So I met him well coming up. Do the houses like this. This is this is more like it was like kind of like a it was like a mom and pop comedy club whereas you really start from open mic level and work your way up. Tahir Liner Soda Person That got me started on to Ray was actually curves mentor to raise the one that introduced cub the Keith Robinson So I just want being around to and then Guy Spain court in spank is is he. It features like you on on the road. So spank was here. Lining their helium. This is two thousand fourteen. So every every time it was a like a hill honor icon a new. I would hang go at their shows to try to gus bites. I just to get that five a minute so I hung out the whole weekend. He was at helium. The do guest spots on every show ended up putting me up and I did good on everyone and We just stayed in touch which one there may be spanked him. Like you sent me one of your tapes. I want to see if I could get you. On a showcase showcase was a week later. I'd get an email like hey anthony. I'm a produce comedy central. Be Putting together show for Kevin Hart and we want you to be on it like literally how to have jumped out at you see holiday I was like I can't believe you won't be like Oh. Let me for my people but it was like even and I still like. They said they wanted me on the show but like things still weren't certain like it was like okay. We're interested so as the things going on like some watching like heaven spanked their instagram. And like they're still on their tour so I hit Oh spank like you. Am Emma definitely on your show. He was like they said. They like your tape I'M GONNA hit them up to see like if things are food for sure so on a Wednesday get a call like the comedy Central People WanNa Conference call like Hey Anthony you're definitely on the show We're GonNa need these things from you. So it was like by their Friday. I had to email them on a copy. Happy in my set that I was going to do and then we were taping that Monday and I couldn't get any stage time that week because I'm telling people I'm doing a show. Kevin hurt but nobody at the club. Believe me off right after I quit bouncing right so I came name the fully desk Sunday. I did the open Mike at Fergus but this was on. Uh April taped on April and Sunday actually happened the B. Wrestlemanias like an like a bunch of the philly com share like huge wrestling with a total right so it was like no comics nokomis Willie only at the open Mike That was a light crow and I just went up and just like I started trying to do my side but nobody was really into it anyway so like I just bombed right so it was. I was bombing with the material. I was supposed to take the next day so I was like man. I'm GonNa just do whatever you're not listening anyway. And so yeah it was like all the only stays on my gut before attempt to show was me bomb and I mean when the actually taping that was amazing. Yeah that was great. Yeah you're gonNA came out better and he's been he's been supportive and yeah yeah. He looked he looked a lot. It's like good. What's on the horizon? What is the goal? What is the goal for for anything more? What is the The dream obviously living. But what is the finish line if you would say so. Both so my goal for this year. I'm about to start turning these colleges and like I'm really going to tighten up my hour. Then I wanNA shoot my our sometime in the next year. Okay and then. I just WanNa from term with these colleges I wanNA build up. I'm building on my FA- my family's with these With the college students. I'm because they're the ones that the main ones the only social media so I want to push you over. The short end on their first impression of what comedy is over the colleges. Then move onto the comedy clubs then move onto theaters and then work my way up to where I'm doing arenas so you're talking about social media. I know I manage and help musical acts so it's so important if I reach out to an agent or a lawyer. The first thing they'll say is how many instagram followers. I have to have any user. Youtube Shit has so. It's the same in the communist effort. Talk about the numbers. That's how it is like the first few meetings I have with. MTV that same situation where it was like Ah To this one. I was still living having a fully. I took a trip up there to have a meeting with them and that was the first thing they asked me like. You're funny but you really don't have a strong Internet presence. That's right so it makes you respect the old school in our music and our guys and the agents and TV people back in the day because they had to trust their instincts and this is an easy job now like if you have one hundred thousand followers than people know is not easy but does the thing to know what the the job on the other side is the age the corporate world who to invest in. They need instincts anywhere. So but that's the thing too they pick these people with the the followers but it doesn't translate views because there's like they throw these people in these movies. TV shows thinking like okay. They got a bunch of all their fathers are gonNA watch like no their followers. He would've just ordering phones all day. They don't want the kids that don't watch watch. TV that don't really spend mind tickets right. Yeah so whereas like a true stand up comedian a true stand up comedian there has one million followers. They're doing arenas versus Internet comic. That broke into stand up. They're just doing comedy club venues. Because does this only a small manor them actually spend money. y'All see Youtube. People who have twenty million dollars. I'll play like the the T.. La here right right. Jose two thousand. But they're not selling dividend different energy. You're not building that like real real famous. The cult of you know I don't like anybody out there is like oh I'll watch him for seven seconds but not for our.

"Inside yeah I mean it's part of the other part is this and I say this when I talked journalism classes you know journalism it's pure sense as a search for the truth reality is a reporter gathers a lot of facts and at a certain point you've got an editor saying when are you going to write that story so you're right the story based on the fact you have today understanding that tomorrow there may be three different pieces of information that skewered changed that story you know you you're not you don't know the absolute truth never do you search for but yeah so that's there is there a difference you feel when you're reporting the story as opposed to just writing for yourself as their defense energy there's a big difference between reporting for the newspaper I'm writing a book when I book it's subjective not object so when I'm writing a book and Ronnie privileged the principal character the book is going to come from his point of view and that's what I'm told the story from now you don't like Ronnie you're not GonNa like the book and I don't know all the answers but this is what he said this is what he testified under oath this is what the government used to make there cases here's who he is and go take it or leave it yeah Halloween the thirty year anniversary of the infamous shooting Dante and Luigi that was officially unsolved corrode I'm guessing you probably have you your own sort of I mean there's been there's been all kinds of documents there's informant debriefings there's enforcement people would you shooting Nikki scarf juniors is having clemson spaghetti with two other guys and a guy carrying a trick or treat one of them Jerry blevins was Jerry was at different you okay so the guy's carrying the trick or treat bag wearing a mask walks in walks up to the table pulls out a I think a Mac nine gun and opens fire on scarf junior hits them six times leaves the restaurant drops the gun and disappears and eh scarf or junior survives the hit amazing ru all yeah in retrospect and I remember talking to some cops right after this happened a few days before that a law enforcement guy the shot he was wearing a vest bulletproof vest and a bullet went under his arm and killed him and they said and here's scarf or sitting at a table take six bullets any walks away gust walked out at a hospital so everything's perspective but anyway the consensus has always been a jewelry moline was shooter that might informants told the feds that and and and law enforcement believes that nobody's ever been charged with that shooting Joe's never been charged there's a there's a tape in which scarf all juniors talking to his father scarf senior in prison in which they basically say it was me that did it in in code but it was really anyway and and scarf or senior says to his son you should take that guy dinner meaning do to him what he Ryan Right Michelle but then but then I talked to joey about this several years later it was always amazing Joey said it could've been me because I was on probation at that time I wasn't allowed out after seven they do I mean but he's a Mesa classic what was what was he like used bobby more for my generation he's the most Popular Boston Philly Joe Fisher Philadelphia mob Joe I would sit down either have a drink with him I have lunch with them and they come away realizing he didn't say anything you didn't tell me thanks very glib he's very always how's your family doing how's your he had two daughters I have two doors how's your daughter's doing the very personable guy talked about sports very well red talked about all government screw ups knew about buddy would never really get into anything and I'm in the classic Joey Line and Dave Schratt wiser from Fox twenty nine got this on film was Brad now the photographer they knew joey very well they were reporting the same time I was ah during their Simpson and after the dot Dan Luigi shooting from prison Nikki scarf oh senior supposedly put a five hundred thousand dollar contract out on always life wanted somebody to kill Joey and Schratt and Brad now driving around South Philly they spot joey get.

Started writing about him at that point ex cop now a bodyguard to the mob boss Blah Blah Blah flatten and I get this phone call from him and he says you seem to have an undue interest in my life I like to talk to you now you know you you you can't say no managed a whole macho world but you can't be writing about this so I said I'm Mitch alongside soon daytime in a public place show used to hang out at the Silver Corn Diner Down Hamilton you should come down and see me we'll have lunch so I told my editor here's where I'm going here so I'm GonNa go see if anything you know the but I go down to see him and he's a very erudite guy and he starts tell me stuff and I'm not sure why but you know he's right on a lot of stuff about checking out and and get to know each other and you know he becomes a source for me and then he keeps saying to me someday you write a book about Me Surani you've told me about gambling extortion brothels that you're running drug dealing of I write about you're going to go to jail and he says don't worry work it out we'll work it out well he already knew he was cooperating was wearing a wire and he was gonna flip so I you know I I should've I think eventually I realized but not in the beginning but yeah that's the that's the only time I other guys we contacted me after he flipped around Ronnie Ronnie passed away two years ago a year ago August in reading and contact with great you know Ronnie didn't go into Witness Protection Ronnie stayed in the area Very very fascinating IRA with I wrote a book the last gangster was about running remember again now these guys around here don't like them because he testified again and that was interesting he testified against him and they call him the fact rat and Ronnie would say where they and where am I right and and I remember after the big trial in Philly I had lunch with the lives of two of the guys who were convicted and winning always have the better perspective on what had been my experience and I'm sitting around and we're talking about Ronnie and about their husbands and and the wife looks at me and says where is he and where's my husband he's free on the street and my husband's in jail and two story I mean that's you know that's the bottom line for them yeah now do you think that there's any of the gangsters from the Angelo Bruno era would recognize the mob at all today is there anything that still similar from I think I think she went over to recognize it 'cause it's still based in South Philadelphia and causes the sun's nephews and cousins Asia or the guys that are involved now I would they would be surprised that is it's not the big moneymaker was back then there aren't as many opportunities I mean look at gambling you got the when you got casino so that they lost a lot of that sports butting is now legal mind everything is is encroached on their their economic engine so what else are you going to go into drugs drugs is a very dangerous thing because one the penalties are higher and to the much larger risks because you're dealing with people who you can't depend on Angelo Bruno didn't want to deal drugs not quasi was morally opposed to drugs but one because you already had gazillion dollars and didn't need it who he didn't trust that segment of the underworld guys are gonNA flip because they're strung out guys are gonNA flip their jammed up or maybe my guys are going to get involved and they're gone they get strung out and then I can't depend on them so it wasn't a moral it was an economic was that a real a dealer dial was like a real thing with look coconut like you know what I mean obviously I'm only going off there was I mean there was in New York I mean when Paul Castellano and Vincent Geraci were running the Gambino and Genovese seacraft families that had an edict you deal drugs and you get caught we're gonNA kill you right but I still did it because there was so much money to be me do you ever when you talked about going to the meeting out in Hamilton when you're going to these meetings are you ever a little bit nervous I kind of got in the back of your head like all right these guys are kind.

"It's a pretty good insightful interview don't forget the review subscribe and rate US wherever you consume your podcast and follow us on social media twitter instagram it had the last word so that helped me a lot right was that surprising you that shift because it used to be keep your mom show you don't come around and within the next generation more flashy Schulman Angelo Brunelli syndrome if you've got a New York is looking what's the point of being a gangster if nobody knows who you are kind of flies in the face of what the Mafia secret society is supposed to be about but but before that did Godfather Godfather to just completely changed sort of the American consciousness when it came to the I think it became a big part of pop culture and I but I think Americans have always had a fascination with the outlaw whether Jesse James Billy the Kid Clyde al capone than nine corleones I mean America has this fascination with the road reports in it operates outside the law there's a certain glamorization of it there's some people who complained that you helped to glorify the mob and the sort of the the dark side of the Italian American experience and talion American yourself like is that something you take personally does that upset you when people make that accusation I've heard it I heard a lot a one really big confrontation at the enquirer one time but I mean my my hold on a second look at somebody showed up when you none of his here's what happened back when John Stanford the mob boss got in big indictment back I think it was ninety four nineteen ninety-four big racketeering case and there were twenty four twenty five defendants and one of the lawyers in the case had gotten fired but had all documents the discovery did this when when when there's a trial the defense attorney gets all the information before trial so it's called discovery a wiretap information affidavits or will that one of the lawyers have gotten fired he was pissed off and he called me over his office any into stack of papers on us and said you know what that is I look at it and I can I borrow that and so I took it all a state Pulls make copies and then the the question that take a weak read through it all and put together a story so I put together the story and I think it was called might have been called mop talker forget it was on Iran on a front page on Sunday and three full pages inside pictures and sidebars and it was really really was was a good story about what this case the anatomy of investigation had wiretap affidavits Wisconsin and It ran on a Sunday and I remember my what iphone are sitting watching the eleven o'clock news to Sunday in October and the top of the news is the Columbus Day parade and my wife says to me anybody's GonNa be pissed off the Columbus Day parade in today's the day this big mops I go into work Monday and we got we got calls from every that sons of Italy and all the groups that they wanted to have a meeting they they were convinced we did it on purpose now I retrospect we probably should have been more aware of where we had the story we wanted to get it in before anybody else so we had this big meeting and were sitting around a table made some of my editors and four five six seven guys from different in American groups on the one guy says to me if this was a black issue you'd be an uncle time you know you are you're an uncle and it went downhill from there and I mean right a- and I understand they could not could not convince them that we didn't do it on purpose right so going forward that was Tober ninety-five going forward I never wrote a mob story on a second Sunday and I was you know it was congressman that but the to get back to the fundamental question I mean it's I understand the sensitivity and I think it's a generation prior to mine and my dad was never like that but I think people in his generation where they went through a lot but I would always say to people that when this would come up that any ethnic group that could give.

legendary figure in our city for sure thank you very much thank you George definitely excited have you on the show you recommended as as we typically do we ask the guests on the show to recommend where they want to eat drink and you recommend despite what is it about this spot that you thought was is so great well I mean Angela Lutts who's the owner and and and runs the places good friend of Mine Angelo has a background he was involved in an organized crime case did his time and is one of the I think one of the great success stories this is a guy who truly has turned things around and Ah runs a really good restaurant he's in the middle of college would is like the South Jersey restaurant Mecca and he's holding his own it's a great place yeah well I WANNA go back with with you and and your story in terms of coming over here you are you're third generation is that my grandparents emigrated from Sicily right now okay so my father was born here and not I'm sexy generation Italian okay and so what are you uh-huh about about their story I mean there was a major that was sort of a major immigration from Sicily at the Early Twentieth Century Right Yeah I mean most of the people that came were four and most of the people that came didn't speak English anyway there's a as a certain irony in all of this one year old let's talk about immigration and here's the irony that I find Johnny I mean I have people in my own family and people in my generation who are very conservative about this and what I say is one hundred years ago would have been our Grandpa our two were being denied because they don't have an education then we'll speak the language they don't bring any skill so what's the point of letting them into the country and that kind of FIS face of work is about this I mean I'm here today my grandfather and grandmother came here and struggle to make it you know my my father was the youngest of seven and the only person to graduate from her school he had three children my brother and my sister all three have college degrees his first two grandchildren might my daughters both have masters degrees the American experience it doesn't happen in day in and and to deny immigrants because they don't have the skills of language lose sight of what America's about so yeah I mean that's a only at ut you know as beautiful I totally definitely appreciate that 'cause it's definitely does seem like we're reliving some stuff we thought we had moved it Jackie yeah we lose sight of who we are where we came from and then the next other is somebody that we should we want to shun it that's not the way this country's supposed to operate you start you you went to Dartmouth and earlier and we're starving for the people that are mothers in Hanover New Hampshire and it snows in October and you don't see the ground the toll make you're from this area right I was born in South Philly grew up in South Jersey yeah and I had a chance to go away to school you know and as I met tournament I I had a chance to go to Lehigh Dartmouth on Canada's same right and since Dartmouth was the furthest away I wanted I wanted to experience being away from home so that's why pick Dortmund and it was a good experience I really I like to play some a much happier now that it's coed when I was there it's a good school and really good at you know what I got out of Dartmouth when I remember going there and one of the professor said you come here and what you do is you learn how to learn it's not what you major in it's done you learn how to learn you take that with you and you know that's what reporting is about is is being a quick study you a lot of different stuff thrown at you and you've got to figure that'd be able to explain it and when I graduated I had I had again it's fortunate this is in the middle of the Vietnam War I had written shoulder playing football and rugby so I failed my physical so I can get a deferment to look for a job and I applied at a small news favor near where I grew up there was an opening for sports writer and since I have played sports the the editor knew me and I got shot and he gave me a try out and I started out as which writer and I spent a year reading high school sports and then kind of that was my journalism school that first newspaper that I went to work for was the Woodbury Times back then now closed unconscious spent four and a half five years there and that was my journalism school I started out as a sportswriter then became a news writer by the time I left I was the city editor so I learned about journalism you move to move to the inquirer and it was pretty quickly that you got put on the Atlantic City within two years I was in I I was in Gloucester County when I was in Trenton but then I got sent to Atlantic City to help with the coverage of the Casino Gambling Referendum in one thousand nine hundred seventy six and I and I was down there for that and then I was down there for the opening of the first I think six casinos spent I probably spent six or seven years in Atlantic City for the inquirer so you were there at the beginning of Atlantic's very the very beginning was air during the referendum and I was there covered resorts international's opening and covered bally's opening Caesar's the first five or six casinos hours every Saturday to make a move into realizing you know obviously the the underworld was a part of that whole gambling situation during the the run up to the referendum there was a lot of debate about was legalized game they always called legalized gaming gambling was legal allies. GimMe going to bring the mob toll annex city well the answer was the mob already wasn't Atlantic City what was it that became part of my coverage and then it just expanded out of there and I'm writing about casinos I'm writing about the industry I'm writing about the ethics I'm writing about the money in an writing about it or is the mob trying to get its hooks into Atlantic City the way it did in Vegas Russian and so I did a lot of that and then Angelo Bruno got killed in one thousand nine hundred and then things changed rapidly F- How'd you get those guys to talk to you in the beginning medium but the more I stayed with the more I become part of the furniture I mean if there's a trial there is a hearing on there and then it's just like covering any other beat right the more you do it the more people get to know you and some of them for whatever reason decide they want to talk to your they want to try to spin right so they could use so you can help for mob guys that's kind of unusual book with I was fortunate that the next generation wise guy seemed to like the attention in one I was I remember covering a couple here he's when I was Atlantic city that he was called to subpoena that testify embry was very polite but we're never say anything Komo no commoner it's nice to see you thank you very much whatever Nikki scarf oh I don't think ever liked me but he would never talk to me what was the next generation guys and it's kind of that John is guys had this American version of the celebrity gangster you know so you get involved in this at a time that's coming right after Godfather and godfather to mhm you think that also changed the way that people viewed the mob as opposed to how I I know we talked about a little bit about how the guys after Godley and and then in the Skinny Joey we're a little bit more into being on camera.

that's fine Branka Andrew Blank Okay we've got Angie Branka owner and chef of saute compared announced that right yep you did all right he's on my name is for Turkey so welcome to the show we opened the restaurant along with husband John what three years ago three and a half years ago yeah two thousand sixteen okay that was a pretty big jump for you you had started in the corporate world and Kinda came into the restaurant Biz with not much restaurant experiences yeah that's exactly right my entire Korea wasn't a carpet wool Jitsu in and I worked for IBM for quite a while a climb up the corporate ladder went all the way up to the corporate data discovered know what I don't quite fit in here decided the restaurant is probably fit in the best and I totally enjoyed it so decided to open a restaurant seems crazy everyone told told me that I lost my mind is going through a crisis or something like that but did you have any restaurant experience I know you're crazy paid off though well I so the thing though as I did know how to cook I didn't know how to cook the cuisine that I grew up with very well sure but lots of people know how to cook looking in running a restaurant or two very different things Yeah I knew exactly what I was getting into I knew to kind of work that's required to run a restaurant I have family members in Malaysia who have run a restaurant street food cards back home and I was a kid ours always helping some of my family members who ran restaurants streets apart and and I under then what kind of work is like so you know the only difference that I had to learn here not so much of the weather running restaurant is this you know the the health poets here and what the Hell Co two have department koets Iraq crecy yeah that pot two and licensing and stuff like that and was good at out I pretty much know how to make the food run the food and how to operate The restaurant which the good thing though about the restaurant that I did come far it is a prettier restaurants if you come in you notice that the service is as if you travel halfway around the world because that's the only service I knew the food is just like you have traveled to Malaysia because that's the only knew how to cook so I wasn't trying to change anything I wasn't trying to adapt to what I think Americans one I just did what I knew and I think that's why I was able to succeed in what I did because there's a restaurant where I came from not what I think Dat America's one I think that's what made it successful is that a tough is that a tough decision though because obviously you're you have to cater to a customer most of your customers are going to be Americans and we're in Philadelphia where people have very strong opinions about things were you at all scared that Oh they might want an American version of Malaysian Food Oh yeah John talked so much about what we might things and and the challenges we might have we had all those challenges we had refers to come par in Malaysia south you know when someone artist Tame the menus will will does in the menus will will be caper six and and we didn't realize that Malaysia most people would be expected to order sticks by the dozen to eat because that's present at the center of the meal when you go to a place that's what you really want eight is a lot of Satay I brought out yesterday twenty thirty six person but when we first opened the doors media realized that that culture doesn't translate here and and other people coming in to order one stick to share with between two people you know a couple and and what will be binding half a stick and sharing a half of the etiquette somebody listening and they don't know what is for to explain it to us Yep sure yeah Satay as marinated Meat I need smaller pieces of me that's really well marinated and spice up sometimes Spicer Chagrin as spices salt and he's always brought on a coconut sharp in Malaysia and and the reason we grew it on coconut shot Choco maybe because it's a natural few that we have in Malaysia but he's also a smokeless chocolate the aroma of Saturday is the whole experience of waiting for your meal as well the Aromas almost like spice incense that enveloping the the restroom on and and also the skewers skuas do not do not have a smokiness to it because we don't use American Woods doesn't have that smoking us in Schaub chocolate enhances the smoke and aroma of spices so that's what Satay is is always easier with peanut sauce and alpina sauces made from scratch edge it's not peanut butter is not a pays is actually kind of like a gravy that you would put on top of Saturday and how we eat satay hard time finding coconut charcoal here the only ones in the US cooking on cooking chocolate imported every year you bring it in from NFS Few batches were from Malaysia. Sometimes we get stuff from India but yeah we it's hard to sausage is so now in the restaurant of F I R right and then how many skewers do I get too many sticks to I get now we found on by five six ten stakes just to just to get the message across you know minimum finds thanks for president with the reasonable way of enjoying satay and not half a state for me you're out of business real fast sharing one st yeah but it was a quick you know we learned a lot of lessons because it was for me it was about how how translate my culture here and it's something that I was not aware of let me first opened our doors because there are a lot of cultural differences is that I took for granted and I just assumed that people would eat the same way I would if I serve this kind of food and I realized that no I mean it's not many people understand how to eat this kind of food the way I would just assume for example Rendong and rice and and we still rise of Lao Lao meat dishes like curries down and vegetable dishes and in Malaysia where we OUGHTA rice plate it is our order ice skate we don't share our rights pates right so everyone orders arise plate for themselves and the Lao which is the protein and vegetables is always charitable dishes we always have to admit the table so we just take a spoonful of that an eat we've made a rice but what I notice you had America without any one explaining to them the rice would be mid off the table and everyone has their own pay rent down off the culture so site then you get a little ruler sound robbing people on the doing things wrong yeah but this is this is the things that I never knew before and it's a cultural difference in and for us to gradually over the last three years trying to explain to customers this we creating a manual for them suggesting flipping suggesting a manual which is true it'd way would approached his food eventually that those you know those kind of where it spread and and customers will bring new friends and they were about the way of eating at a restaurant and over time it has changed but it was challenging so having to sort of is you're sorta tell a story as much as it is to serve the Food I mean you're obviously he obviously had to let people know that this is you just you know people when they think of that region I think probably think more.

We have a highly esteemed guests Craig Lobont from Philadelphia inquires people we say la- band, and I'm really really glad to be here. Thanks. Heavy negotiations. We had do all this secret. Details of the secret location. We're at we had a term I phones in our phones in there. Right. So, you know, part of your life is kind of it's almost like you're in the witness protection program. Yep. Yep. We try we try to remain a pretty pretty low-key. How's that feel because it's gotta be a you have a certain amount of prestige and power, but you're not allowed to to to to you have to have certain level autonomy. Like, what's that like for you? Well, you know, I've been doing this long time and this when I got started being an anonymous critic was standard operating procedure. And you know, you try to go in and out of restaurants to be as unnoticed as possible, you really trying to capture the experience that, you know, a regular reader would have. So you realize very quickly that it's in everybody's interest to try and figure out who you are. So, you know, at at some point, you you do your best you always do your best. And then at some point you gotta live your life and release a small town. Yes. And I live in town, and I'm a family, and then you start having interactions with people at school, and you know. At some you have to create a dividing line for yourself. That's acceptable. You say listen, I'm gonna live life in and be a Philadelphian when by family, and then I'm going to do my job as best as I can. And so, you know, I'm discreet, I take as many precautions as possible, but you know, unless you're going to get plastic surgery regularly. There's only so many things about yourself. You can change on a on a on a weekly monthly basis. Let alone going out, you know, three hundred times a year. So you go out three hundred times a year for work. Yeah. Do you still enjoy going out when you're not working? I love it. It's it's it's become you know, this is a lifestyle job. You know, you really it's journalism. I, you know, and but I work a lot. And, you know, this is my reporting going out to eat and being in restaurants and over a course of time, you know, you it is, you know, very few jobs are built around daily rituals like eating, and if you do it long enough and intensely Nuffie make an part of your. Life. It's it's it's becomes natural and second nature. So I'm just not one of these food predicts who's tired or blase or jaded of you still still excited about doing the worst. Oh excited because I live in such a dynamic and exciting place where there's so much passion. This is coming to sport. Right, right. This is part of blowing up the scene herlie houses going to say not lost since you got here. I mean, I've been here I've been here twenty one years and for the day, I got here. It has just been getting better and more interesting and dynamically changing and growing in in a way that very few. I think beats at the newspaper have consistently seen sort of a a rise in energy and quality and material that I've been I've been sorta blessed with being able to cover. Well, what do you think in able to city to have this boom, what was it that caused Philadelphia to go when you got here ninety eight there was only a handful of restaurants handful of pubs. And now, it's one of the world class. Eating and drinking cities in the country. You know, my theory has always been sort of an economic situation if you look at where Philadelphia is on the east coast between, you know, Washington DC and New York, and for the longest time that was like the chip on our shoulder that was we were overlooked, and that turned out to be really good thing. Because Philadelphia remains in my play in my opinion, the best place to live a city urban exciting urban life on hands down can afford to live here partake. In all the cultural things in Philadelphia has offered the way that you cannot New York City, you cannot in Washington DC in the same way. There's not the same sort of local character and spirit and here into it. There's there's no there's no quiz. Oh, ho Secondly, six months.

Gallagher gallagher. All right. Who was somebody that you've worked with that? Most people like, but they don't know that they're actually kind of an asshole Jay Leno seems like it. I've I've heard him. But he was very mean to to other comics, you know, like all these convicts were real nice to see them. This is over the old days over at the Middle East restaurant when it was upstairs their comedy works. And he was playing there and a lot of comedians wanted to meet him, and he was very mean. And condescending to a lot of really nice guys. Okay. And I saw him backstage a couple of times being mean to like indiscriminate people or something like that.

And it's an always something the same acts that go to New York they'll pass through here this without as much, you know. Yeah. It's it's the beat of the city. It's a little less than New York. But I kind of want that I always kind of wanted me to you know, and it's a little more than Baltimore. So. So. Slowdown. Philly any day over New York any debt, and the mutter museum is something that is very beautiful on everybody should go see that. And you know, they have. They have the original Siamese twins skeletons there. Okay. And so this is my last one because I have to catch the bus like a true for the Delfin. Oh, my would have been on time. Are you doing this to the day you dyers there's there exit plan? You know, I thought about you know, getting out of it. But once it gets in your blood, it's in your blood, and obviously I'll be doing it. You know, when AVI making depends jokes and.

Now's well tweeted about how your legend Dennis Miller recently talked about how your legend. What is it about the legendary wig that has kept you? So that you're you're in some ways it could mean every young comedian Philly has legendary with story. Everyone wants you to see their act. Why is it that you are? I mean, you have lived up to that legendary Monica every comedian Philly loves you. Why do you think that is? I think I come from a big family. So I kind of introduced people to other people who will do them good or or are doing the same thing that they're doing that was one of my main functions at the laugh house was to Cima make these comics assimilate into the world of comedy, you know, people see it in a certain way, and you know, and it looks unattainable. But I I showed them, you know, that it's attainable. I mean, if I can do it anybody can do. And I I saw always pass that along even back in my in my beginning days because a lot of times, the, you know, I had more of a worldview, and a, you know, a family view, and I would I would treat it like that. And I think you know, I think I was able to you know, I I was successful at doing that. I know that because a lot of people went on to bigger and better things, and I knew them from the beginning when they first came in all dough, then go, and I'm to tell jokes know, and this legacy is all about how people remember what you did for me.
