Unwinding Anxiety With Dr. Jud Brewer
"So maybe the best way to launch into this. Is i just define our terms when we're talking about anxiety what are we talking about specifically and how does that differ from other kind of kindred emotions like fear and worry and and the like. Yeah i think that's a great place to start so if you look at i think the dictionary definition of anxiety goes something like feeling of worried nervousness or unease about an imminent event or something with an uncertain outcome It's interesting in that definition. Worry is an interesting word because it can be a noun like this feeling of unease but it can also be a verb. Where i am worrying so i think. Let's bookmark that. And come back to that. Because i think that's a really critical distinction That in both of those can actually the now and can lead to the verb which can feed back to the noun of worrying but looking at it from a scientific standpoint. I think a lot of people. It's exiled was something that's kind of necessary needed for survival. You know especially right now. And that's something that i dove into a lot of my book because i've been really interested with this idea. You know there's this whole idea of performance and i actually haven't found any evidence to support it so let's bookmark that as well and talk about some of these origins here So think of fear as a survival mechanism okay. We've talked before about habits and setting up habits for survival right to remember where food is and to remember where dangerous so these learning mechanisms go way back. You know that could serve the sea slug like this is the oldest learning mechanism known in science positive and negative reinforcement. So if you zoom in on fear as a negatively reinforced behavior fear helps us survive fray think of our ancient ancestors album savannah they are forging for food right. But they don't know if it's dangerous so they're moving from their safe zone their cave out into more of an uncertain space the satnam so their brain naturally goes on high alert to tart. Start to learn things like. Oh there's food go there again. There's danger don't go there again okay. So fear helps us learn where things are safe and where things aren't safe so we can avoid the unsafe places that fear mechanism is is part of the brain and then layered on top of it is a thinking and planning part of the brain neo cortex prefrontal cortex in particular and this is interesting because it helps us survive in a different way. It helps us survive through thinking planning yet. It needs information and preferably accurate information so in this day is a lot of misinformation which gets in the but it also is helpful for it. They have precedent. So when it's going into unchartered territory. It's really hard to think and plan you know like. Oh let's let's go explore saturn. Well we've never done that before so so we've got you got you got to think of a bunch of things and try to approximate. But it'd be much easier if somebody else had explored saturday and wrote a book about it. So do this. Don't do that okay. So the prefrontal cortex think of fear. Help survive the prefrontal cortex survive. But if you pair fear with a lack of certainty right which is what. The prefrontal cortex is trying to help us do is trying to help predict the future based on past experiences if there is no precedent if there's a lack of certainty that fear plus uncertainty leads to anxiety and people think oh anxiety. It's going to help me survive. No right there is no evidence for helping us survive. It makes our thinking and planning bring go off line. And if you think of the extreme form of anxiety panic right which is wildly unthinking behavior. That's that far end of the spectrum of anxiety right. it's an interesting but subtle an important distinction in that it is the uncertainty. That's driving the irrationality right. You can be afraid when you have a certain set of predictable parameters to deal with but when you don't know what you're venturing into that's what provokes anxiety so it kind of extend that what's fascinating about that is. It's not the dire consequence that creates the anxiety. It's the lack of certainty around whether that consequence is going to be dire or not so dire. Yeah absolutely and just to be super clear for your listeners. It's not that fear is a problem right. Fear helps us learn in new situations in particular But fear doesn't have the same neuro chemical Reaction in the brain anxiety like how nero chemically like. How do these two things distinguish themselves. Yeah i don't think all of the industry's been worked out. But i think one way to think about this on a temporal scale so if you look at the timescales you could actually differentiate them pretty well as an example of. Let's say stepping out into the street. So let's say in this day and age when everybody is distracted by their cornell. Well say are weapons of mass distraction. You know everybody's looking at their phone so somebody steps out in the street. It doesn't see the bus coming bearing down on them. They instinctively jump back onto the safety of the sidewalk and say instinctively because this is much faster than our thinking brain. Imagine you look up the bus and go. Is that really going fast enough you know. Is it going to veer splat. Credo no time for that so we jump back onto the safety of the sidewalk and then we have a fear response. All of our our basically our fight or flight response cakes in and says well that was crazy and i to be more precise that fight or flight response is where we get these catecholamines. We get all these basically adrenaline surge. That says hey you gotta you gotta run if you need to if you're not if you're not safe at this point okay but that also helps us have this fear response that says wow. You could have almost gotten killed. You should learn from this. Look both ways relearn what you learned as a kid. The problem is so that's think of that as super rapid. Is that instinctual response. The rapid response is that fear response. But then ideally that drains out of our system and we move on when we've learned right so this is what differentiates eighty is with the anxiety. Maybe we keep replaying it in our head. Oh i could have gotten killed. I'm an idiot. I shouldn't have done that. That is just kind of keeping that fear. Response going chronically naked. Happen for hours days weeks years you know and this is where people you know. It's not like we need a lifetime of psychotherapy for fear response right but what we do. What we do need is the ability to see the difference between a helpful fierce bonds and us literally getting spun out of control because our minds going out of control making us continue to think about it right. And i think we're all experiencing some very ation on those two things over the past you know year whether it's fear or unhealthy anxiety you know amidst a global pandemic and you know our weapons of of mass distraction that are feeding us conflicting about x y and z. I would suspect that you know. This is created an unbelievably robust. Petri dish. For you to really you know immerse yourself in the subject matter in which you are an expert and i know that you know early in the pandemic like last may you were writing pretty extensively about anxiety and how we were you know grappling with how to manage this this crazy shift in all of our lifestyles but here we are almost a year later It would seem to follow that. There's less uncertainty now. Perhaps the same amount of fear but have you seen any kind of differentiation in how your patients or or the population at large is kind of coping with Cova i so i would say there are two main things that i'm noticing both in my clinic and then just at march one is that there is that big spike of while. This is crazy this is really going to be a pandemic as it. Wow this really is a pandemic and then how dangerous is this. How infectious is this. All of that that uncertainty has gone down a little bit and the death rate has gone down when people figured out things like using steroids. To help you know severely ill patients so that part has helped yet. We've seen continual spikes and these are intermittent once we don't know when they're going to happen. With other forms of uncertainty like the variants o of this variant popped up. And now there's and then those things feed a whole 'nother level of uncertainty. We've also seen things that really haven't changed that much. In terms of the uncertainty you know small businesses for example the economy for example. This is totally unprecedented. So everybody is kind of feeling their way through this whether it's a poor small business owner i've seen so many who've just like put their life savings in like just one more just one more month right and then they crash and burn or the. You know the feds are trying to figure out how to prop up the economy without you know throwing us into whatever wild inflation or whatever. That's not my lane. So i don't know but the other piece that i've seen on top of this is how people are coping coping with air quotes. Because you know you've probably heard of a quarantine fifteen and where people have gained weights and people are turning to these short-term coping strategies because they are immediate and you feel good in the moment whether it's drinking drinking has gone up. Actually it's interesting. Drinking has gone up a significant part of the population and some people have just basically cut out there drinking. Probably due to lack of social resources in the usual places that they do so drinking's gone up netflix's had quite a ride. You know social media all these things have gone up as coping mechanisms. That are probably gonna get laid down even harder as negative habits. That people are gonna have. That's gonna give this pandemic along tail and then you know. I think the anxiety piece is going to have an even longer tail summer describing this as the coming. You know epidemic of anxiety
While All Eyes Were On the Covid Relief Bill House Passed Two Other Important Bills
"Congress has been working on plenty of other legislation as well senior video producer. Hannah gaber talked with congress reporter savannah berman to catch us up savannah. You've been on the hill all week and it's pretty much been all is on the covid relief package for very good reason. But that's well on. Its way to becoming law. The democrats are looking good for getting. It passed before the march fourteenth deadline. That they're worried about well. We were all looking at the covid relief. Bill what else did we miss the senate. This week has largely been focused on president. Joe biden one point nine trillion dollar stimulus bill but the house passed two other bills. That people should know about those being the house passing the for the people act which would provide sweeping reforms to protect voter rights and then they also passed. The george floyd justice and policing acts but should usher in a series of police reform measures in the wake of national uprising. Saw summer and protest against police brutality and we saw a lot of support for police reform over the summer and this is also not the first time that the democrats have passed this bill. Isn't that right. Yeah so the. George floyd in policing act was actually passed last year. But senate minority leader mitch mcconnell. Who was the majority leader at the time. Didn't bring it to the floor. And since then we have actually seen support for. Police increased quite a bit in recent months so now that the democrats have a majority in the senate. It's a very slim one. Literally one person vice president khama harris there. Are they gonna be able to get this. Bill passed because this is not a reconciliation bill. They're going to need a two thirds majority for this to become law or at least they're going to need sixty votes to get passed a filibuster rate so are any republicans going to get on board. Yes they would need to have ten republicans. Join all fifty democrats in order for this to pass. But republicans have specifically taking issue with the qualified immunity provisions and the qualified immunity provision is a legal doctrine that showed police officers from being held personally liable in civil court. So republicans are arguing. That people will sue police officers. Try to take legal action against them if they simply disagree with being arrested or something else so. Republicans are arguing. That police officers will no longer be protected and that that is unfair for first responders law enforcement officials but how democrats feel about taking that provision out of the amenable to that kind of a compromise. You know i don't think so. There might be some movement with some of the moderates on in the senate side but progressives like cory booker who has really been the point person for democrats when it comes to policing hasn't been hasn't been wanting to budge on this. So i don't think democrats would be willing to take it out of the bill and for those of us who just absolutely love political fine print. There was also a campaign finance reform. Bill passed in the house this week was there not that is correct so the house also passed the four of the people act. And that's going to look at expanding. The voting poll and seeking to increase. Voter turnout by expanding. Early voting lessening identification requirements allowing same day registration and. It's also going to fight against gerrymandering. Boy this sounds like it is in direct contrast with a case that we are seeing in front of the supreme court this very week. So what do you think is the campaign finance and voter reform. Bill gonna make it through the senate. It faces a lot of the same issues. In the with democrats needing ten senate republicans joining them to break. Gop filibuster and for this act a lot of senate. Republicans dislike it and have actually called terrible. Senate majority senate minority leader mitch. Mcconnell has taken a particular dislike to it and one aspects that they dislike is that it will allow states to establish electronic voter registrations a permit voters to actually register on election day and republicans. Say that it's gonna make verification harder and may lead to an increase voter fraud
Seeking Refuge On The Open Road
"When we reached bob wells. He was camped out of the grid in his white. Gmc savannah van in the middle of the california desert. Some twenty five years into his experiment in mobile living. How did this whole journey start for you. What was your life like before you discovered this this lifestyle while i was either very very lucky or very unlucky depending on your point of view it was the winter of one thousand nine hundred five. Bob was living in anchorage alaska where he'd worked for over two decades in a union job at safeway saint job. His father had worked until his retirement. At the time bob was going through a divorce and after alimony and child support payments. He says he was no longer making enough to clear his rent. He was desperate and that is when he noticed old beat up box banned for sale on the side of the road for fifteen hundred dollars and he decided he had to go for it. That was all the money. I had left in the bank. But i had to have a place to live and so i bought it and That night through a backpacker. Sleeping bag. Down and i began my van dwelling adventure in the winter and the cold van and i That first night. I cried myself to sleep. I literally cried myself to sleep. Or when you're going through a divorce you you cry yourself to sleep on a pretty regular basis ends but sure just of course greatly compounded here. I was homeless bomb living in a van on the streets. And how much lower can my life get. But bob done a lot of camping in his life and you had to make a small space cozy and after a few weeks eat figured out how to cook and stay warm deal to bed and cabinets used his gym membership to shower. Figured out how to make it sustainable. And the money. He was saving on rent. Meant he didn't feel like he was always on the knife's edge it slowly and subtly shifted from. I despise my life to. This isn't really that bad to hey. Every month i keep the money and put it in my pocket to. I kind of really really liked this. And that's the way it's been every sense. Was it difficult at all to kind of switch. Grand narratives about What trajectory you're supposed to take as a productive member of the economy absolutely it was a traumatic transition you know. We are trained from birth to death. Our purpose in life is to be good productive citizens and so it made me question everything i had done. Exactly what society and told me to do. I'd gotten a job. I wanna house. We'd had kids. I was following the american dream to the best of my skill level and ability. As i could and then i was forced into living what society told me was the life of total failure homeless in the van and for the first time in my life i was happy well that raises a lot of existential questions and when i looked around at all the people i work with work eat sleep. Working sleep work. Eat sleep. I said what society told me it was not true. I've finally found a way. That's happy for me. Let me try to understand that. My life and for the life of others a few years later bob had saved up enough to quit his job at safeway and by supplementing his union pension with seasonal stints as a campground host. He was eventually able to take to the road as a full-time nomad in two thousand five about a decade. After he moved into the van. Bob decided to pay forward. Some of the techniques developed the started a website called cheap. Rv living the serve as a kind of resource for other people interested or in many cases forced to move into a vehicle. I started the sole intent of letting people know there wasn't on alternative. You didn't have to live under the tyranny of the marketplace and the way to do that was to eliminate your biggest cost in life. Which is your housing with cheaply. Live frugally and then you can live well for a long time the site just kinda mosey too long picking up you know few page views here and there in two thousand eight happened. Bob says in the wake of the financial crisis. He was inundated with desperate messages. Have lost my job. I we moved in with my family now. My family is lost their job. Now we're all losing our own. What are we going to do. And that was the question. I got over and over and over again. Even after the economic recovery started to pick up the number of inquiries and page views and people in the community continued to grow. Fueled partly by the rise of social media. Bob started his cheap. Rv living youtube channel in two thousand sixteen and has since become just one of many popular nomad influencers but unlike a lot of the glossier more glamorous content associated with the hashtag van live crowd. Bob's videos are all about helping people struggling to keep their head above water financially and they're filled with the nitty gritty details of living behind the wheel. Today we're gonna talk about heat today. We're gonna talk about taking showers. The topic of today is poop. You can cut your behinds. Not one of them. You want that thing to be clean all the time. Bob also does these little interview profiles of people living in different kinds of vehicles cars to trucks to buses. Welcome back fellow nomads. Today we're going. Meet a new friend of mine. Joe sale load everyone relax. They're really out. There doesn't look like there's a bunch of people out there. Yeah thank you that video for the record. Two point five million views and counting. Bob says his videos have become so popular that he's now making more money than ever before. I think eventually the second break but it gets great reviews on amazon which is why i'm recommending ads in affiliate marketing. Help him bring in over one hundred fifty thousand dollars a year. Bob makes enough to have two full time assistants helping him with his work and because he says he never plans to live in a house again. He makes a very healthy profit. I'm make much more money than i ever thought. I could possibly make in my life. And i live in a van. My expenses are pretty darn low with that extra money. Bob started a nonprofit homes on wheels alliance to support people transitioning into living in their vehicles. They've started to outfit and give vance to people in dire need of a new vehicle. And bob says he saving up to buy a plot of land for an in person resource center. It isn't clear how many people are living on the road at this point. But in two thousand ten when bob started this annual gathering van and car dwellers in the arizona desert called rubber tramp rendezvous it had a few dozen attendees by two thousand and nineteen. They had an estimated ten thousand people show up and as a central node in this growing community. Bob has had a kind of front row seat to the massive disruptions of the past decade. And he's watched as certain demographics have borne the brunt of those changes. It's a surprisingly large female. Contingent older women in their sixties and seventies. When they were girls they were told get married. Stay home raise a family and so they never go up so sturdy and then now they're living on five hundred to eight hundred dollars a month so skirt and he cannot live in this country on five hundred two thousand a month so sturdy and live in house and you just can't do it and so they all desperately needed the solution as well and i told them all. If you move into your plan you can live reasonably well on that. You won't be rich but you won't eating dog food and there's hope bob says he has seen an uptick in views and inquiries about van dwelling over the last year. But so far he says the stimulus checks and the nationwide moratorium on evictions have slowed. The number of new nomads. Still he says as the baby boomers continue to age into social security and as the effects of climate change intensify bob expects the movement towards van life to surge and he sees it is his mission to try to help however he can. I've got a string of lifeboats. And i want to get as many as i can into the lifeboat and i think the hammer blow of two thousand eight really put a crack in people's confidence and i think when you combine that with this cheers a natural disasters and the epidemic. I think people are just going to be abandoning the american dream in droves. That's all i'm trying to do is get people out
VP Kamala Harris believes teachers must be prioritized for COVID-19 vaccinations
"We're back now with vice president. Khama harris on the battle to reopen schools. Does she agree with the. Cdc's plan and do teachers need to be vaccinated. I she spoke one on one with savannah. Guthrie let's talk about schools at. We got a lot of parents watching right now. The cdc few days ago finally put out some long awaited guidance on how schools could safely reopen. But here's the thing. They tied it directly to the rate of infection in any given community. And i'm gonna put a map up because if schools were to follow that right now. Ninety percent of the county's ninety percent of the schools would not be able to the cdc's own metric. Was it a mistake for the cdc to connect school reopening to how much infection. There isn't a community. Well let's i say this that in the last four weeks schools are opening every week more schools are opening and it is because we are supplementing. What needs to happen around the vaccinations getting into two states. But also because folks are. We're seeing progress. But what about that. Cdc guidance then that's that's the question. Well so here's the thing. What the cdc. What they have recommended are exactly that recommendations about how to reopen safely if they've been closed how to stay open if they'd been opened and so the recommendations. What again needs to happen. Around social distancing handwashing mask wearing but the point is that we all want our kids to get back to school as quickly as possible and safely as possible. The cdc has said it is not a prerequisite for teachers to be vaccinated for them to go back to school but many teachers are of going back to school. Can you reassure teachers. Who are listening right now that it is safe for them to go back to school even if they are not vaccinated if these public health measures like distancing and masks are being implemented so first of all let me just say this and the president has said it and we're all really clear. Teachers should be priority. Teachers should be a priority. I believe that twenty two states. I believe have prioritized but each is in terms of stating 'cause it's safe for them well. I think that we have to decide if we can put in place safe measures. This is why it's so important. We pass the american rescue plan. It's going to be safe for schools to reopen when we can get our schools. The infrastructure needs like helping them with their ventilation systems helping them create social distancing with with barriers. The things that are necessary to get them back opening a safe way so savannah after that interview. I understand late today. The white house clarified. That's right it's spokesperson. Said the vice president and the president agree. Vaccinations are not a requirement for teachers to return. It is the white preference that teachers get priority but that lester is up to the
The Failed Shangri-La Plaza
"The star studded high production surrealistic musical sitcom shangri la plaza was originally produced as a pilot for b. nineteen ninety ninety one season but for one night only the network decided to air it as a summer fill in on july thirtieth nineteen ninety and that half hour made history. Well kind of in a really weird bad way. So we're gonna talk about the sitcom shangri la plaza. All of the weirdness that occurs around it to talk about cop rock. That was abc. Same year that this came out. It has a very cop rock field. But what is what are your reactions to this the intro. I could not tell you what it was about. If you pay me any amount of money it so abstract i guess and never mind the cheesiness. that's i expect that it's one thousand nine hundred ninety experimental. Things are a little bit weird. I was just saying that. Like i guess seinfeld came and say yeah television at that point but i could not tell. It seemed like a place. Where maybe there's food and abc live. I don't know what is highly. It's hard to tell it's it all began really with nineties. L. a. mall culture shangrila was inspired by that and it was filmed on location in north hollywood strip mall at the corner of vineland and burbank boulevard. In north hollywood california just went for it. This set a strip mall was built on top of an original strip mall which is where the problems really begin. This mall on mall design was the topic of a washington post story in nineteen ninety emmy award winning art director. Jeremy ray elton best known for his work on playhouse was responsible for the set sign. And that's not the only high-calibre name attached this very confused project. Broadway legend terrence man. Who played leads in. Layman's and cat stars as ira bondo machine mechanic who works with his brother. George jeff jaeger lanes musician love interest. John remain in seinfeld. Speaking of seinfeld at the mall's bodyshop. When amy molloy hardin yes jan on the office takes over her shitty husbands donut shop. I think after he dies. Both brothers are instantly. Smitten future smallville. Star nexium sex cult leader. Alice mac a very young l. Plays amy's precocious eight year old daughter in her only on screen acting role jazz. Great carmen lundy plays the donut shops. Only employees savion glover plays a wrapping teen commenting on. What's happening kind of greek chorus style. An oscar nominee. Chris sarandon plays the plazas landlord. It's for something where it's just a pilot of a throwaway like experimental pilot like pretty heavy hitting actors. The show itself was helmed by horror sci fi writer director nick castle. You may know him as the co writer of john. Carpenter's state from new york. And he played michael myers in the original halloween. The composers were craig sapphire or sedan known from his work. On cheers and mark mueller. Who wrote the theme song to duck tales and jennifer pages. Nine hundred ninety eight hit crush it just like there's a lot of talent involved in this project and it just gets lost along the way while working together on projects like the last starfighter tapped the trio discovered. They had a common passion. The three of us loved old musicals. Knicks dad was a choreographer who had done royal wedding and many other movies sephardim says and the opportunity to make a musical finally happened. When cassel's pal jeff sagansky became the head of cbs. He was looking for something new. Some fresh ideas for cbs program lineup castle savannah mueller who themselves the schmaltz kings were creating in la based rock opera and unique written and composed by credit on the pilot the or inspired like i said by the strip malls around the mall culture in the late eighties early nineties. Kind of creating something colorful and also their love of musicals. It's like a hat and a hat on a hat. The pitch to cbs was also pretty weird. The schmaltz kings cleared off sagansky desk and with the keyboard and two speakers. They perform songs from the show in character.
Some Black-Owned Businesses Are Turning To New Banks For Paycheck Protection Loans
"To help keep workers on payrolls. Businesses owned by black and Latino people were often at the back of the line. Those firms often had to wait longer for money, even though many were desperate for financial help. With a new round of business loans in the pipeline. Authorities are now trying to address that disparity as NPR's Scott Horsley reports like a lot of business sellers. Jennifer Kelly's income took a hit last year when the pandemic struck. She's a clinical psychologist near Atlanta, and some of her clients didn't make the adjustment to online or telephone counseling. Kelly, who has two employees applied to her regular bank for a loan under the federal government's Paycheck protection program. But she says the process was frustrating. It's kind of like trying to get the vaccine. They put my name on the list. And there they finally said, Oh, we all have anymore, And we're sorry that first round of P P p loans was exhausted In less than two weeks. Lots of businesses complained that banks were prioritizing their biggest customers. Bones were especially hard to come by in neighborhoods with a lot of black and brown residents When I needed them. They were not available to man, including. I'm not the big business, but I'm a small business and committed like with the fabric of America. When Congress okayed a second round of P P p loans last year, Kelly applied again. This time through a bank 250 miles away in Savannah, Georgia that specializes in working with black own firms. They were very patient through that entire process, and I didn't get approved for the loan, and I do hope that, especially in the small black banks will survive because We need to have those institutions that second bank Kelly worked with. Carver State Bank was founded 94 years ago with the goal of building financial freedom for its African American customers. 80% of its loans go to black owned businesses. Robert James, who sits on the bank's board, says he received P P p applications from around the country most looking for less than $50,000. Most of our applications are very small businesses individually owned gas station in the neighborhood or restaurants are people deserve a lot of credit for the hard work that they're putting in just to make sure that we get help to the customers that need it. The most According to the Federal Reserve Bank of New York. Even before the pandemic, black owned businesses were more than twice as likely beyond shaky financial footing as white owned firms. CEO Janine Jake Oak of the Community Development Bankers Association, says that means the extra time it took for loans to reach those businesses could be costly. They had a lot less cushion to start with, which made them much more vulnerable when the economy went south. Authorities have tried to address the disparity in P P p lending in a number of ways. First they've made more money available. They also gave banks that specialize in minority and low income communities, a head start when the latest round of paycheck protection loans was launched last month. Finally, while the loans were designed to be forgiven, some black borrowers are suspicious, a legacy of the long history of discriminatory lending. So education is also important. Carver States, James says he tried to reassure African American borrowers they can use P p p loans to keep their businesses and communities afloat. I've heard a lot of stories of customers who were eligible for these funds, but didn't trust that there wouldn't be some sort of a catch. Craig Gordon runs a company that provides in home nursing care in Georgia about 30% of his business is on hold right now because many of his customers are wary of letting anyone even a skilled nurse into their home during the pandemic. With Carver States help Gordon's just been approved for a second p p. P loan.

Dr. Fauci: Double-masking makes 'common sense' and is likely more effective
"Get over Fauci. Two masks are better than one that that to me because now we're going to see people in their cars by themselves with two masks on Because found, she said, so. A lot of folks are hearing now about double masking when two masks or trying to get one of those n 95 medical grade masks. Do you believe that that's advisable and makes a difference? You know, it likely does because I mean, this is a physical covering to prevent a droplets and virus to get in. So if you have a physical covering with one layer, you put another layer on. It just makes common sense that it likely would be more effective and that's the reason why you see people either double masking or doing a version. Even in 95. She Savannah.

"I said listen. This guy is nuts. And i just think that he wants me to do something and i don't think i already do just like whatever so. That was their original thought. That we're gonna do a cookbook. Then goes to new york city and he tells david blackie's like listen. Mama's gonna do a cookbook. But i want to write a book and that's basically how it happened. And so you know. I'm paraphrasing obviously but definitely like jonah went to like defend my honor david black. Tell the back off. It comes back down he goes. Oh my god. This guy is gray. Guess what that's so funny but well the good news for your fans is the book does have. It is a memoir with recipes totally. Can you tell us one or two of the recipes. That are i mean. You really have to edit down your recipes. There are only a handful in the book. So they're all meaningful you but can you tell us to that. Really stand out. Oh yeah absolutely. So you know. I'll tell you one for me and i'll tell you one for jonah so for me when it really stands out is Carissa one of the biggest struggles with coming to a different city. One instructors struggles. I found coming to savannah as that. You really have to figure out your network right so if you don't have any connections in the city before you gotta talk to people meet people. We had this wonderful farm call walker farms and she had these beautiful carrizo so every season you know while the first she was open for about two years so by the second year she would have these beautiful rainbow carriage but stems and everything will be tried to figure out how to use them in with the utmost integrity. And i think that that dish was one of the dishes. It was just a very simple carrot sort of starter. Dish roasted took took taps man south verdy out of it and to risk which was one of the sauces that i started to use when i moved to savannah. I never really used arrest in new york city and we tried to pull all the things that the regional sour cream that whatever but it was one of those cell early celebrated dishes by people that were like. Oh this is good like you can get good food here. And so i really. I really liked that dish a lot. We haven't done in a long time but it's one of my favorites another recipe in. It will take you all day long to make it. But i think once you make it. You will be really satisfied. You can eat for two weeks. Let's the sunday gravy recipe and that's very special journal. Because i think that that really is the foundation of how he came to food and why he loves all parts of the industry so his grandmother's recipe and it's about you know fifty five different cuts of meat in so but it's a really beautiful story behind it to did you tweak it at all tweaked it a little bit. But i don't think. I don't think too much it's like we did the audio book. Jonathan i read the audio you did. That's so cool. Yeah but he read this recipe. And i was like looking at my watch. It was so long. I was like okay. Okay okay so it's definitely when you got a plan around but i think what you make it. He's made it a couple of times in it's delicious. Oh that's fun all right. I wanted to ask. How's your team doing. You said that it's it's very different savannah Compared to new york. But i was just curious how. You're keeping their spirits up and how they're doing. I think they've done pretty good. We had a staff meeting today. Side-winds in new york for about two weeks. I just got back. I got back on sunday and were closed until tomorrow. So i haven't really seen the team and we have a staff meeting today and they seem excited. They seem pretty. They seem pretty in tuned. Were hiring so. That's important for us. Because i am going to start to move away from the daily operations of the kitchen and move into more of an executive role which i haven't done yet really. I've been sort of cooking in mopping floors and doing interviews and stuff like that. But i haven't. I haven't actually been able to like look up and see like the bigger picture so hopefully this year. I'll be able to do that a little bit. More focused wait. You slipped in there that you're still mopping floors. I caught the eye and still mopping floors. I mean you know what's nice though. I'll grab a broom and then someone else will grab it out of my hands. So that's good where few years ago they would just like stepovers. We've been up so so that's pretty cool. The world are you. How do you feel about taking on that role and being in the kitchen less. Oh it's scary. It's it's scary. I've been i don't i don't know if it's going to improve my cooking or if it's going to make it from gonna get rusty. It's felt funny when we reopened. I felt like. I was on like roller skates right. Like i was just kind of had the feeling how you run on the treadmill and then you get off in your little. You gotta kinda like your bam. You're you're rosy. What was he. I felt very woozy in the kitchen. And when i used to be able to move around with such efficiency as kind of in their wasting steps in time a little bit so it scares the shit out of me. That i'm not gonna be cooking but i'm hoping that there's a greater good that comes out of it. It's hard to for me to work every day all day in still make time to be creative. And i'm noticing that i need to make space to create and i'm hoping that this will allow me to create some of that space because i just think that when i'm working all the time the anxiety is around finishing these tasks in not around creating something a little bit more tangible for the team so i'm hoping that it opens up some Some space for me to kind of improve. But i'm gonna get rusty and i'm scared of that. Are you still planning on opening additional restaurants like the last time we talked. You had a project in austin in the race go vet still happening. And that's of the reason why. I think i need to staff up the team and not is kind of hand over the reins a little bit a little tiny bit more and so in order for me to make space for austin because that's coming up real quick. Can you tell us about that project. Absolutely so we're we're teaming up with the thompson hotel group going to be in the off of the lobby of the hotel so we have the gray market. That's going to be in austin and we also have version a larger version of our diner bar so at the a there are two essential eating spaces the front bar which was originally a twenty four hour. Diner in the greyhound bus station. We've kind of created a little bit of a cocktail bar slash snack thing. It's been everything from like sandwiches in chicanery. Now you can actually get some of those earlier dishes from the gray in there as a little bit more complete concept. And that's what we're gonna do with the gray dining bar in austin is create more of a cohesive dining experience and then the market is our concept of like well. They meets lunch counter. We can't remark. It's the best so we're excited about that. So yes we started all over again in a couple in a couple of months. We do the same thing we go to. Another city started all over again. Are you excited to learn all about new city totally awesome. Let's amazing alison. I've only been there once. I'm excited to see what we can do there all right. We've a few more minutes. Is that cookbook in the works. Will we ever see a great cookbook. I well abner. Yes yes. But i don't know when you leave me alone i just finished. I don't know when it's funny because Davey bike is still wants me to write a cookbook just ended up the other day. I kid you.

"Family and honestly the white the white demographic of that thought it was great right. The donald writing with great. My writing was good. And then i sent it to my dad. I said the to gabrielle hamilton. I sent to you. Who worked for. I worked for maroon and they were just like this is not right. You know there was there was there was a lack of transparency. From my part there was a from john part. There was a lack of honesty in. I didn't say is much as i needed to say in that book because i was sort of looking at it from while this is john lewis book and i'm just sort of adding to it and i never really took that i never took the concept of it like this is our book. Regardless of how many words. I write his book. This book represents us and then you know after those sensitivities are really had to take a hard look at what my level of ownership is going to be in this book. And i've never written before. I was you know taking on water running restaurant. You know just there all the time. And i didn't want to do it. I didn't want to do anything else. But try to like be successful at this restaurant and i had to take this book seriously so he went the paris which is not a bad place to write. This cleveland bear the beginning of last year. We stayed for about six weeks and we read every single word of the book together twice and we rewrote wrote and rewrote in the structure is still the original structure of it meaning. Jonah writes the manuscript in. I sort of flow in and out of the story and it's almost raises a conversation. Were there have some conversations you hadn't had in real life that you need to have to make that bookwork. Oh absolutely and that was one of the things so we were in about four weeks in paris. Hilton you know It's probably add cry twice. Donald cried about four times. We're just kind of like running through all these different scenarios and the book and one of the things i said was like i told him i blamed him for it. As you wrote a book that our relationship wasn't ready for the you know because we never had those conversations for. We never talked about race. We just assumed we were really you to open a restaurant. In in a segregated greyhound station and had never had a conversation. Well a very sad conversations about race but we've but they've always been on surface right like obviously like. Oh we're we're opening a restaurant in savannah. Savannah is fifty three percent black. I want diversity within the space. We've had conversations like that but really understanding how we felt like how i felt about white men how he felt about black folks in general like having those conversations that friends have been people that you really know like where they're coming from you only have those conversations in your formative years right when lecture intellectual in you're doing these reeds of books surrounding yourself with people who want to have these conversations to enlighten other people are themselves. You're not really necessarily across the table talking about like how the death of a martyr remix me feel right are how you know how this Uprise social justice in the killing of george. Floyd makes me feel right so like all these things started to come out and i think that's the part that we weren't discussing. We weren't discussing the things about race that makes us nervous fray over things about me working with a white man the parts about that. That makes me nervous him. Working with the black woman. Departs about those things that make us nervous because doubts would really starts to expose those inherited racial biases. I think of you to is such a dynamic duo. But i guess you also have to think just when you're opening a restaurant it's not like you're spending a lot of time shooting the shit. You're you're just working constantly you know and you so exhausted when you're the boss and the chef and all of that so i can understand why you weren't you know let's go grab a beer every night after dinner and talk about these very important subjects the suta these conversations take place in paris. What was i guess they to. Your point always started taking place in. You'll see that in the book how these conversations on full throughout our relationship we have been constantly talking about race right but to really talk about those formative examples in your life that mold you as a person like those conversations didn't really happen until we went to paris. How do you feel now that the book is out in the world. I feel good. I feel relieved anxious. I'm curious as what people think i mean. Don't get me wrong. Like a lot of why i cook is to stroke my ego right. I i felt like you know. I really loved being behind the scenes and i felt that was a very quiet child and so i think that cooking is really helped. Build my confidence and interest. I hope that this house to build my confidence do or just might not be down a peg and be like listen. Go back to the drawing board. What do you hope people in general take away from the book but what do you also hope people in the restaurant world. Take away from the book i think. In general i hope people take away that were just to folks trying to figure it out. We came together at a very vulnerable time for the both of us and i think that we nurtured each other. In that time we grew from that. I think so. I hope people take that. We're just normal folks trying to have a conversation and from the restaurant industry. I hope people take away how to communicate with your partnerships. Whether it's the line cook next to you whether it's the front of house manager whether it's your business partner. I hope they take away like it's okay to kind of be vulnerable in asks for what you want because then you know there's no harboring of resentment and what's the worst that can happen. You know if you just sort of like saying well you know what this is. What i want and but you gotta be ready to hear what the other person has to say to now. This is not the book that fans of the gray were expecting. I don't think this book that anybody was expecting. I'm sure like myself. We all thought the first book out of the gray would be a cookbook. Why did you decide to go with this rather than cookbook. So you know it's really interesting. So david black literary agent. I met him at southern food ways. Alliance probably in two thousand fifteen. Is that when we met when you did the when you watch yes. yeah so. We met that year. I thought he was low key aggressive like i was like he was just like you know you know david black. He's a very sincere lovely man. he's a little bit of a close talker is kinda wears his heart on his sleeve. And when you are in a room full of people that you admire and you're trying to create a lunch that sort of commissioned to do like. I really just hope that. My rights isn't overcooked through their big pressure on those on those lunches yon watches because their food. Writers is like who's who of southern cooking is in that room. So here's david black trying to convince me that. Actually do a cookbook. While i'm freaking out about whether or not whether or not might sauce is gonna break you know always the hand pie sound like email addressing like email be the day after and i just came back from the trip and i was like downloading john..

And yeah, I see hard-hearted Hannah is about Pirates house. I did write how I love there was this pizza Choice, which is also still there called Vinnie Van Go-Go's that has amazing pizza. Then I started I broke Johnny Mercer who was born there. He is. That's where the Box. Okay, so you have all these wonderful house has a lot of federalist style or Revival Colonial at just all these gorgeous houses. And you can't or a lot of them. The merger house is one that you can't store but or couldn't anyway Johnny Mercer was born. There. He is. I think I talked with do I do do do hame? I thought I wrote about his great-grandfather. Do do a pretty sure is one of the most prolific. Yep. Your assists ever. He's amazing and definitely know at least a dozen of his songs. I will name just a few Come Rain or Come Shine one for my baby off. Someone's in the kitchen with Dinah. I was just singing that yesterday where you Autumn Leaves hooray for Hollywood Moon River accentuate the positive song Baby It's Cold Outside That Old Black Magic and I come swing Zippity Doo Dah. So yeah, he wrote the lyrics to Thursday or 1500 songs. He was nominated for 19 Oscars and 1/4. He so soft zipadeedoodah wasn't that song in the South? It was a Song of the South Disney watch that as a kid. I believe I did. I kind of remember somebody walking away with the blue bird, but that's what the that's what the the Disney. Brides band was the Disney ride was oh, yeah last Mountain. Yes flush mount which they are doing like with where we're rabbits. Yep, and there were doing that and making it into one of my favorite Disney ones, which is the Princess and the Frog. Oh, that's right. Yeah. Yeah song on the south. I we did watch it. I remember watching it. I would you love to see it now to pick up on all of those racist things again. I think it was Uncle Remus is the black man and you know, he's singing this song having a good time. And then I remember a porch scene with you know, a mani and I don't know I remember all of that, but I think it's next to impossible to see it now in anymore. I don't know if you can search for it on the internet. I imagine Disney have somebody taking the taking that shit down every time they see it. Yeah. Anyway, sorry I interrupted wage. Johnny Mercer. Oh, no, that's that's all I had about that. And then I was going to oh, there's also a National Wildlife Refuge the Savannah National Wildlife Refuge and then I wrote five Municipal Cemetery all gorgeous and I didn't list them cuz I was like, I'm not going to get into them. So I'm glad that you did. Well, I only I only did about Bonaventure. I only need one and I it was a little and I only wrote a little little little little bit about it. Okay pictured and Midnight in the Garden of the yes and the page didn't have time to figure out where it went. But the statue that was on the cover with the girl the bird girl bird girl. They had to move it out of the out of out of the cemetery because it was coming becoming such a wage many people work and tramping over everything. Yeah they did and I don't know where it is now, but I have a framed picture print of it. Oh you do I could have told you twenty years ago I moved. Told you where they put it cuz might have to tell tourists now, which is located in me. The Tallmadge museum is not a thing. I don't know. I know there's a Tom Ridge that I could see basically from any way. Do you have anything else? That's it? No, just kidding almost almost that's it. So the Bonaventure Cemetery is over a hundred acres and I kind of would like went all over the place a look at Chicken in 1762 took it as a plantation John morand. He was buying properties in Savannah as much as like six hundred acres and emu. He named the plantation after his wife Claudia, which is very rare at the time the name of after the white or yeah to name it after a wife. Let's see in 1779. It was used. The land was used as a home. Spittle treating French and Haitian troops from the siege of Savannah in let's see, which is the only battle fight the only battle fought. Yes in Savannah. Wait a minute Bloodshed in battle. I did not know that wait. When was this? 1779? Yes. Okay. Yeah. I wanted to make sure. Okay, you're asking me for History questions Krista. I am very very brave move on your part. So I think it's a hundred and three acres name in 1846. It was a privately owned Cemetery called Evergreen and it was seventy Acres. I believe at the time and it was originally a Plantation before then and then the city of Chicago. Anna bought it in 1907 and it was the fourth of the five cemeteries that the city now owns and it is very popular and lots of tourists go there and it's dead, you know got all the Spanish moss and the trees and the flowers and it's right by the river and has lots of wildlife and nature. So it's it's beautiful. Yeah. There you go. That's all I have. Okay information. It is all of the cemeteries are gorgeous. They're just you know wander through and.

"Pierce's his brother's name was John. I think so too Pierce and Butler. It's like George Bush and George Bush. Yeah. So Pierce M Butler like to gamble and make Risky Business deals and he got into a ton of debt. Obviously, I'm giving sages short version of History here like he got into a ton of death. So a group of Trustees were appointed to handle his assets and they started selling off his some of his properties to pay back his debts and it wasn't enough so they had 2 in 1859 they decided to give I say that in quotes half of his movable property AKA slaves to his brother and five and then sell the other half which became what you were just talking about. But I want to get into a little bit before hand Pierce Butler was married for fifteen years to his wife Fanny Kemble and she was an abolitionist and it is sit in eighty-three. It shows she claimed she didn't know where her husband's wealth came from and she got she said well, so she she found out about the plantations and begged to be weird if they live. You know, what I didn't I didn't have time to go look. Yeah. They didn't they didn't live on a plantation. I'm assuming I I from reading this. I don't think song. They did. Yeah, but I don't know where they lived. I didn't have enough time to go back and like do I actually want to know more about her but so she basically begged to begged him to go see and this month per being an abolitionist was a point of contention in their marriage and eventually eventually led to their led to their divorce. But so in 8938, she was an out to go to the plantations and so she could see what was going on and she wrote about that time that she moved there from 1838 to 1839 pretty extensively and her journals are in her diary or whatever they are called and it was eventually published in 1863, but they were going through divorce and custody battle and Paris wouldn't allow the journals to be published when they were going through this but it eventually dead. Was published as the the Journal of resistance? I'm sorry the Journal of a residence on Georgia Plantation 1838 to 1839. They divorced and forty nine and eighteen forty-nine and I really want so I guess that her record of this time is one of the best recorded histories of how dating school at the time and how they were treated. Yeah, they said so she was appalled. So anyway back to let's see so they divorced in eighteen forty-nine. So she was not a part of the Weeping time. It was ten years after they divorced that this happened. So he was forced to basically sell all his moving property as long so right. Sorry just not even me. Like slaves and everything to furniture and place slips. Yeah so long Leading up to this sale was you know, all the hotels in town were booked and the Bars were full and you know, everyone was they were I think I sent you a picture. I emailed you a picture there were ads taken out for this. You know for this for this great saying, okay. And what is your email emailed you some pictures and there was an ad that was taken out it I didn't have a lot of time to read about the sales specifically off. Okay, but there was a journalist from the north who was sent by the New York Tribune editor and his name was Mortimer Thompson, and he was not there to report on the sale and he used a pseudonym, of course so that he could get close to he the student amused was q k and phalanges Dough sticks, I think he was but he wrote normal name. Yeah, you know and he and he wrote extensively about the auction and the aftermath about it. So this 436 people were auctioned off and a lot of them had been working for so long and had families that were torn apart and but don't worry cuz they were all given a dollar so that's great. So what is it going to do with it off? I don't have much more on it. But I mean that's men women and children. Yeah, so they there is a plaque that is commemorating this and in 2008, Otis Johnson, who is the mayor at the time held a small ceremony song. Placed a plaque and I'll I'll read you what the plaque says. But basically the ceremony consisted of local man handing out dirt from Nigeria that was sprinkled around the marker and the year, you know put water on it and that was pretty much it and I'll read you the black but you know, and then right in the one of the biggest parks and smack dab in the middle. Is this Massachusetts looming forty eight foot tall Monument honoring the Confederate soldiers that died and Forsyth Park and it's just again like it's all it's Jerry much in the news right now. But this is just another another example of the yeah well and it's groups like the daughters of the Confederacy Daughters of the American Confederacy or something. I don't know. They're the ones who raised money to put up all of these statues everywhere. Oh, yes because it went and changed the home. History changed what it was and did you get into them at all or no? I just can't I just kind of briefly read like who? Yeah did the fundraising for the statues and edit it? Just again, it goes into as the United States this country was built by slaves people who were enslaved. I'm sorry. They're not slaves. They are people who were in life and it was taken from Native Americans. So yeah, you know people talk about reparations and and it's and I get that it's a lot and I get that there's a lot that go through in that. Oh, I didn't own space. So I have no part of this but there's a there's a lot that this country needs to.

You know that in the South the pineapple is a stem as a symbol of welcomed Hospitality. I had no idea. Yeah, so you'll see that sometimes in Savannah but in some way or you'll just see a pineapple sometimes in the South. Yeah, sometimes you'll see a seal cities of the song. Sometimes you'll see a pineapple off the grocery store and we're not everybody has in general is a very welcoming City love to have people they love to talk with people dead. Love the tourists. I have not I didn't I when I was working at the Old Town Trolley at The Trolley Stop in City Market, which I I actually looked on Thursday it is still there. Have you always liked have you lived everywhere? Yes, cuz I feel like we do something in your like when I lived there when I worked there when I was there and then there's me and like Boulder Colorado and Los Angeles and I've traveled a little bit but I haven't lived everywhere and I'm kind of thinking that you have and there's a lot more to you that I don't know. Yeah, probably. Well, you know what? I don't like Texas I used to live there. Of course you did but I am really I rooting for Texas this year. I am rooting for a blue Texas this year so that they can become a purple state after them. Yeah. I'm rooting for your Texas. Don't disappoint me. Damn Chris Christie said no do it Texas may be interesting. I tell you let's forget about let's forget about Texas right now and go to Savannah, Georgia. Yes, let's go to Savannah Georgia. So what again you'll be very proud of me last time. I literally had three lines that I wrote down. And yeah and this time I have four pages. So yeah a little bit better. There's a lot of bad a little bit better. Mostly I just woke did I think I only actually did too kind of two things. But maybe agree I did The bonnevier Bonaventure Cemetery. Oh nice A little bit of that and then most of the rest I spent on Pierce Butler and the Weeping time. Oh, yes, and that's pretty much what I did most of everything on I just I have a tiny tiny Thursday. We sing time that I mentioned it and I was going to post I found in Atlantic article on it. Oh, yeah, you'll see the I did see on the blog. I wrote a ton on from that page from that article and again my version of writing a ton and Christmas version of writing a ton. Somehow we both have An hour and yet but I think the thing is too is that I write down what I'm going to say as opposed to just notes. So I think that takes me longer and I don't get as much yeah, you know what I'm saying, very rarely write in complete sentences and I literally right and complete sentences so I my page is like, yeah, so that's why that's why I'm Christa talks more and I talked I always feel so bad and like not the Christa show on Talking Dead. Well, I have to say So, you know our London episode the audio was very off and you so graciously said we should record it because my audio sounded bad. I'm like no good news is that you spoke percent at the time. So we don't need to you sound great. It's good. I am still we can re-record it, but nope it says know so A little note at the beginning. Please excuse sages lack of clear audio. Have a nice day and I recorded it that day on Hindenburg. So I don't know what was That was that was the day that you were experimenting with. I was in the Alcove you were in The Alcove and experimenting with the microphone. Yeah, but I'd used the microphone before. Oh now I think I took out the microphone because I couldn't hear you. And then later I feel about that. It was using the speakers as the microphone but I didn't know that at the time so I couldn't change those settings. Yeah, I'm a pretty nice. That's what it is. I bet. All right. What did you do the history? Yeah, I did the history and I didn't go into too much detail in life history.

How did Vivica Fox Angelina Razek both get covert. It's not funny. It's not funny but it is like, how do they both get it I guess by no means is it funny but I'm just saying I don't want. It's not that I WANNA see the results in the form of test results but I wouldn't be surprised if I were. If that were my job I'd be like, I'm not doing this cove it like you know I would call and say like no, not to be real. But after watching some of the pre show actually to turn it off. I was so uncomfortable and I'll tell you the reason why it's like what the pre show was was just like. awkwardly zooming into nominees homes but like not, it never worked like it was always like it was always like Dylan McDermott's like a bad Wi fi connection and her being like. Oh, you know like back and forth and I was pleasantly surprised by how put together the Emmys work considering what a mess the pre show had been in terms of stuff I mean it should have been one person zooming in with people casually like having silly interviews they didn't need to even call it a red carpet like there isn't a carpet there. One funny thing was that though Co host I guess it was Nina Parker it must have been needed Parker I. don't really I don't know her, but it must have been her if it wasn't Brad said something like she's like bantering with him and she said, well, the biggest star of. Why Because it's all about how good the Wifi connections are with the with the nominees like Oh, my God this show the stakes are low. The stakes have never been lower. The biggest wins last night where watchmen Shits Creek Wifi and WIFI coverage. Exactly and Aby Sherman Palladino is big hat which, of course made a brief appearance. So the hat am I okay. So her hat she weird big hat which he typically wears but then asam screen shot you sent me she had to like a masquerade ball masks on you. Think I know I, don't know. I mean like amy now's the time to be a little more creative put regular masks on them and considering like how it considering, how bad the VM. As were and kind of just how bad. All of the award shows have been. The emmys were shockingly good. Just doing it live whatever it is doing your lives like a source of energy something like something to feed off. Of mistakes happen like Jennifer Ashton coming out having to use the fucking fire extinguisher twice fire that was like delightful. You know what? What if the whole place gone down just kidding I'm just saying like it created an element of excitement that otherwise would not have been there and that kind of pulled the entire show along and like God bless those producers who are like A. Zoom screens all those had they know which zooms to cut to like it was crazy and the only thing that I would have wished for was for longer lingering on celebrities zoom situations because I wanna know what's in our house.

But you know hey doesn't matter I got to show up so I feel like young. Women are going to look at you the way that you looked at as I hope so right now. I'm trying to figure out how to wear that a little bit like it's a little like yeah. We'll take a picture. Yeah Yeah but I'm sort of like what more do I have to give to. That are in that moment because I tried to I just I'm me and I'm sort of laid back but like as I start to talk I started to realize like Oh shit I've been through a lot. Okay we can keep on going like don't interview me just like I will keep on a little quiet up here but I will keep going and going and going and I think that it would be an honor if I was looked at like that would be my. That's like my life goal for sure Cheryl. Did you ever get to go to chase. No sadly I didn't. I don't know how that's possible but I did. I guess I've been slowing down here in Savannah but no but she definitely was an inspiration and for me. I mean you know just. It's not every day a little. Carl opens up bakery. So sing someone that looks like you is. It's really important and so I think for people who hadn't even had never been there. I think just the representation was so important for the industry and you know she wasn't just a just a chef. She wasn't just a shopper restaurateurs. She was an author. She was an art collector. She had a important art collection down there. A lot of it hung in the restaurant still hangs in the restaurant and a real lover of life beyond say she was in beyond video. I don't know if you all know that but like nine I I think what she was ninety three. She was in the video. Giovane any bleach as connection just from some of the work that I've done with the local food chapter down there in organizing leadership so I didn't actually get a chance to meet her. I was able to like facilitate for other young folks to be able to meet her. And so I think the thing for me that kind of stands out. Is this idea the idea of like our torch bearers and as a black woman who is in the food industry of seeing the folks who are poor carrying that torch in so many the active ways. And I think it's one of my friends was like you know. Can we gotta make sure that we we give our elders flowers while they're still alive and so for me that's something that you know this. That reminder of how do we make sure that we're we're honoring the folks who came before and who who blazed the trail and and some of those folks I'm thinking of it's like my mentor. Dr Lenny. Sorenson Dr Jessica Harris like these amazing black women who are like. They're they're riding riding the cookbooks. They're making the food they're telling the stories and they're connecting the people and so for me I can. I can only hope to continue to to give those flowers to those folks while they're still alive and honor them when they pass. Okay we're GONNA do a little speed round so Joanne. You told those who your mentor is Cheryl who is your mentor. My Mentor was my grandmother. She was for some reason. There were a lot of women in my family. We named Queen. I have no idea why they didn't name you that I'm still give you how it skips me. But her name was muddy and she was. I found out recently while she was a slave and she was a pastry cook. Oh so that was. That's pretty powerful for me to realize that. I guess I'm doing what I'm supposed. Oh subduing Kinda.

"We have room over there. You Go giovane unique projects objects absolutely. I'm jumping ahead a little bit but Giovane when I was reading about you and billiard. I read that. It's an African American centennial farm arm. Just since we're talking about farming right now can you turn means so Gillard farms the land that I that I live on with my partner has been in his family since eighteen. Seventy four so Jupiter Gillyard who was born a slave in eighteen twelve like after the civil war made his way down the coast post from South Carolina and staked off about four hundred ninety acres of land. And we're on kind of like that. Last fifty acres and farming retired farming we've always farmed organically and it's challenging especially with the changing landscape with climate and everything you know in the last three years. We've had two major hurricanes. The last major hurricane was probably at the turn of the century so for us us. You know there's there's some conversations that are happening and this is kind of. What's your at the center of the work that I'm doing now? Is this idea around resiliency of finding finding ways to to bounce back you know working with the land. I mean we have one area of land when I first came down in two thousand twelve. That was beautiful and Lush Valley Valley area and we can do events down there. After the last two hurricanes that is mosquito alley and it stays wet it stays flooded and outside of US putting in some dirt and like you know doing some very expensive changes around. They're like we just kind of have to leave it and make sure that we keep it kind of cut short so that you know snakes and stuff like that don't get folks and so knowing that they're there is that change happening is something that I think is important for for all of us to know whether that's eaters or restaurant tours and chef says that you know what worked five ten years ago may not work now oh and for us as farmers you know. I'm I'm a former restaurant owner. We closed down at the end of last year. And which I'm happy About is that for us. You know being down in a small town. We're like okay. We're smart amazing people and the places that would actually pay money. Are the places like Atlanta Savannah Charleston. I can't tell you Santa Cruz. We've had people offers money to like open up our concept in California but down in the south is where the work needs to happen and so we struggle to stay on our land. We we don't have a tractor and so there's a lot of hard work and guess what it's been about one hundred degrees for for me. It's just like let's let's have these conversations about what that looks like and I do a lot of work with seeds and also on the board of directors for seed Savers Exchange. And so I do a lot of work around seat literacy the and seed saving and so you know that's where it starts it starts with your your farmers who are often being displaced starts with the seed and really finding people who who can nurture and grow and you know chefs who can procure and create and make sure that those farmers are thriving and so. I think it's the cyclical oh relationship. That is so important for us to really kind of keep in the the middle of our hearts right now. God bless all the farmers out there. I mean I I know everybody in. The industry thinks that Cheryl what is top of mind these days top of mind for me is taking care of the people that work for me. Health Care Just being able to provide a good limb main for people that are making amazing food. For y'all I mean this should this should be a respectable career in to be able to to get people to want to do this wonderful work but you know just being able to take care of them and also to be able to run your business. That's what's and top of mind. Giovane I know so much as top of mind for you wanting. That's top of mind for me right now. I think what's what's top of mind for me is the idea of the healing that comes from the plea so herbalists and a health and wellness coach in addition to grower and Dan Dan but for me. You know I'm an herb nerd and a ferment nerd. So I do a lot of work with the microbiome and fermented foods and incorporating in southern vegetables into my ferment. And so for me right now. That's kind of what's top of mind. How can people form deeper relationship with? What's on their plate? Whether that's that's you know knowing who your farmer is knowing where your food comes from or how to transform food and to being so much more than you know what it is just coming out off the ground and so for me. I just really super fascinated around different ways to deal with food. I love the nauseous. The three of you but also so for our three speakers. It's really all about sustainability and all definitions of that word humans the land everything Michelle. We didn't get to talk to you about this last night. We said one thing we definitely wanted to talk about. Tonight is a legacy of Leah Chase. I don't know if all of you know that. Name but Leah. Chase passed away on Saturday ninety six years old chef owner of deejays in New Orleans. Just a legend. You know and this one was still cooking i. I don't know if she was still cooking the past year but like she was mean uh-huh. Oh Wow that's awesome..

"So all you bakers out there get ready our last speaker is kate doubtful of the Savannah. Be Company who tells us she's working to save B.'s. Nationwide the body so cates with the because projects and Savannah Company and really we. We really focus on education patients Vietnamese company. So if you've ever been to one of our stores you probably left with way more information about honeybees than ever cared to know and we realized through going through that that it was such an important part to us that we really wanted to start a not for profit and really be able to focus on education as she said the honeybees. These are facing a little bit of a challenge. These days declining populations environmental challenges. And we have this not for profit for two reasons one one. We want to raise awareness about with honeybees going through. We WanNA raise an entire generation who love and protect honeybees. You know when they start working with the honeybees they start caring about the honeybees and just naturally they start wanting to protect the honeybees and the second part to that is we want to help help. A new generation understand sort of the connection of where their food is coming from and how important it is to take care of those sources and Dan to really nurture our environment into really foster the environment that is growing our food so we started the not for profit for five years ago. Oh one of my favorite stories was out of Charleston. First of all it was a challenge. You know a lot of people are afraid of honeybees. When you're younger you have one of your parents terrence or somebody that you trust tell you do not go near the honeybees you? We'll get stung. It will hurt you so constantly. We're battling this the fear of honeybees that we have a garden. It's GonNa be company where we bring children in and adults as well and show them how gentle the honeybees are and they're gone on out to sting you. They're not trying to attack you. They're just doing their thing. So the School Board's obviously very reluctant to let us put beehives in their schools schools around all their Russia's children because obviously it was all go wrong so we had to really do a lot of working with the community Mutiti and with the government there to really show them that we could do this and now we're in five hundred. Schools were in fifty countries. I'm I'm sorry. Fifty states in foreign countries. We're in we're everywhere. So we really proven that this does work and it's a great educational program but with the very first school that we put these high them. It was just talking about it. We had a third grader from Charleston. Collis and he said you know the mosquito truck came through and it killed Oliver honeybees. And if it's bad for the honeybees that can't be good for us and what do we do about it. I was just like it's working. It's amazing though you know we really immediately started to see the effect and we really started to see how important this was. And it's amazing. Students students love the projects. The teachers love the teaching tool. She usually associated with an urban gardening project as well so they will have the students named name the queen they teach all about what's going on in the hive and then the students will start to study sort of the color of the pollen of the beezer bringing in the color color of the pollen that are blooming on the flowers. Start to make that connection between. Oh Hey these. Fruits and vegetables are growing really. Well those are the flowers that the bees were pollinating donating and honey. Bee Hive will pollinate hundreds of thousands of flowers a day so I mean the ripple effect is incredible it produces more viable fruits and seeds. It grows stronger produce. It feeds nuts and all kinds of things that feed the environment that feed the squirrels girls and the birds. And like you know it's an amazing ripple effect when you really start looking into it and we would love to educate you guys to if you want to go out to savannah. Viv Company so we also started realizing that this wasn't just affecting the students it was affecting the community as well children would go and WanNa bring their families in unlike mom. Look what I learned in school. Today can my mom come see. The honeybees cannot come. Show my brothers and sisters would bring him back to Savannah be company and I would give torn thank. You know. These kids didn't hear one thing said and they would bring their family back in literally. Just repeat verbatim every word I had said it was like they are not only listening. They are learning about this little sponges soaking it up and they're excited about it amazing so you know. It's really growing really excited. What about it and it's not just in schools? We've also recently started outreach programs. Justin communities we're in the why here as well but also we have a Video launching on Wednesday were pretty proud of. We found out that in Exuma there were no honeybees on the island. Did anybody see the fire festival documentary. So you know a little bit about exuma. WHO's there's not great infrastructure? The air but once we realized this was four years ago we realized there were no honeybees on the island so we had another really strong amazing woman named Catherine Booker and she runs runs the ECZEMA foundation and million years ago she worked at Savannah Be Company for a very short time so she came to Ted and she said you know we just realized there's no bees here we want to bring bees onto the island so I we just checked double check triple check just to make sure and then we knew we had to bring bees that what were you might free. So are one of the most dangerous to pests for honeybees. Among other problems like the pesticides Herbicides or big problem the Varroa Mite is probably one of the deadliest problems for the hive so we made sure that we found the. SP's speech that we could take down there. We trained very small group very passionate people who had no idea they were gonna be beekeepers very short time later and and so we trained them and it has just grown and grown and now you see honeybees all over the island you know. One of the beekeepers named Ricky. He she has taken the two hives we gave him and turn them into fifty hives. Four years later it is his industry now and he says that everyone calls up the honeyman on island. He's not ricky anymore. He's Honeyman and so this whole community has just adopted the honeybees and their way of life. And it's just so wonderful to see not because it's just kind of a an awakening feel like there's a little bit of a renaissance where everyone's really paying attention now to what they're eating and you know what they're putting on their bodies in their bodies and it's incredible to watch and we just really want to support foster that and educate people on that so as I said before if you guys would like to come out just spirit company tomorrow even we can take you on Honeybee tour. We we go out in the garden. We open the HIVE. Taste the fresh honey. You're literally eating liquid sunshine. It's like the flowers are converting energy from the sign line through the flowers the beezer collecting nectar making honey. And then also something that I love about the honeybee hives. Something that I've learned from them is is. I don't know if you guys know this was all women running the honeybee hive. So there's one queen all the worker bees or female and there's a few drones in the hive. The rules are not extensive is a great example of this community female L. Amazing Women who work together and support each other and it just shows all of them easing things you can accomplish when you're working together together and supporting each other and coming together as one so thank you guys so much for letting me thank you for sharing your story and for all the wonderful work you and.

"Your lake aac cool all right now. I'm a manager. I don't know how to lead people. I've never done leadership training I don't understand costing I don't understand Dan financials. I literally don't understand how to run a business and now I'm in charge of running a business for somebody who owns this business if you're not the owner and a lot is riding on your shoulders. That is a huge amount on a pressure for somebody. That's never been trained to do it. This this business specifically is incredibly complicated. You know if you go into finance you learn you learn one one thing you learn your skill you perform that scale you go into restaurant management or ownership. You have to be a mom you have to be a babysitter. You have to be a leader you. You have to understand financials you have to know how to plunge a toilet. You have to know how to ratchet a think. I learned what a Flange was last week. And I've been doing this for nineteen years. Here's so there's there's so many hats you have to wear and we're not trained in how to wear these hats and I think that we all suffer as a result of that and that happens because because of various reasons and the first is because the bottom line is so small that we cannot afford agribusiness to actually spend the time training people properly the way that we want to. Because if you I'll have extra people on staff every single dollar counts and anyone that's ever run. A restaurant understands like you are looking for savings here. Ten dollar savings there. If you can save one staff half member you were like yes impressing it but you cannot train people in mentor them properly. If that's all you're worried about I knew I'm worried about that all the time. Our Win in New York is fifteen dollars an hour and that just happened in January and I can tell you that Michelle our director of operations over there and I have spent countless hours trying to figure out how to give more it to the staff while paying the required to pay them but also keep the doors open of our restaurant like it's it is so incredibly challenging so one of the things that I've been doing for the past. Couple level of years is financial training for servers and bartenders. That want to become managers. It I think is one of the most important things that super overlooked. This is because we As restaurant owners have notoriously kept our financials so close to our heart and not share them that we don't really allow ourselves to train people. I can't tell you how many restaurants I worked in or how many restaurants have gone to or how many managers hired that have never seen a pl before this is a very valuable part of running a business. You need to understand where your money goes. You need to understand Dan. What every decision you make how that affects your bottom line and how these things work together and get together so we do financial training within our restaurant group? We do financial trading outside outside of our restaurant group and donate a lot of time to financial training to everybody because it's super important. Many bartenders were going into bar. Managers don't know how to cost the cocktail. So you know you make cocktail you put it on the list for twelve dollars and God only knows. Maybe you're not making any money when you factor in all the labor cost so these things are important and this happens through mentor ship. This happens through managers or skilled professionals within the hospitality industry and without the shoddy industry were able to provide us a little bit of time name and a little bit of effort in order to train people how to properly manage business leadership. Coaching is one of the most valuable things that I've experienced in my career. And that's that's another thing that doesn't get taught really to anyone. We are now living in what is called the Post metoo world that means we need to teach people how to treat eight people. It is so ingrained in our in our being how we talk to one another the things that were acceptable fifteen years ago when I was in the restaurant industry when we he's to have innuendo. Fridays are certainly not acceptable today. But we need to train people on what that means and how and how we talk to one another and what is wrong in what is right and that also requires time so I could go on and on and on about the things that we lack in terms of mentor ship and what is required the thing that I really want to touch on because I guarantee you. I'm like already talking for way too long which I am. Sorry the thing that I do want to touch on. Is that what it takes us such a hospitality community talking to one another another coming together taking. If it's one hour a month where we sit together and we start to try and figure out. How can we share this information with not just each other but with our teams teams? Like if you know maybe once a month I take the teams from the local restaurants and I'll do a financial training. Maybe next month some other restaurant does a training that is about empathetic management management. I don't have the answers yet but one of the reasons why I wanted to open a restaurant in Savannah is because the market is smaller. It's exciting people are excited to be here and WanNa grow and I feel like it's it's a great opportunity for us to come together and shape how we want the industry to look instead of you know living necessarily in a place like New York where there's twenty five thousand restaurants and it's like turning a cruise ship like.

"Everybody I'm actually going to put on a timer. Because I can talk forever about this and I feel like I'm GonNa need to check myself at some point so I am co owner of the with Windsor. My business partner right over there and we have the fat radish in New York which has been open for nine years and we are opening our second fat radish in Savannah Vanna. We are super super excited to be in this market for various reasons and one of them is what I want to address today. So I've been in the restaurant turn industry in New York for nineteen years. That's kind of an eternity in New York. And it's it's a tough industry there so I came up in the industry in Newark when it was quite a violent industry industry as all come to understand. Sexual harassment was rampant. Most women were not able to actually grow in their careers in the industry and it was super tough. I made a commitment once. I realized that I loved it and this was going to be the thing that I wanted to do. I made a commitment to continue growing my career in the industry and try to move my way up through management because I saw so many flaws with the environment and I figured that the only way I could attack these flaws was by actually having my own hospitality group. People wouldn't listen to me very very rarely ever listened to and I think that a lot of us women have experienced that in this industry specifically across every industry. We've we've we've learned through the METOO movement. How actually like how severe the the atmosphere of harassment assault and just being looked over has been and I? I'm incredibly excited. And happy that this movement has occurred specifically within our industry it has not only given us a voice but give us an the opportunity to start speaking about other things so we don't now we're in a position after the last few years of us talking about our stories and acknowledging each other stories and coming together understanding understanding what we've all shared together which has been traumatic for most of us myself included but now we have an opportunity to start talking about. How do we solve this problem? Moving forward. We now understand what the problems were. What existed what the environment was and how unhealthy it was and what we need to do? There are so many things things that I've noticed throughout my career that I found troubling mentor. Ship being one of them so in in our industry it's the bottom line is like super tiny eighty. It's very tiny. The cost of running restaurant are incredibly incredibly high in New York especially but pretty much in every market. There's so many unforeseen costs licensing is so incredibly expensive insurance so incredibly expensive and that's not just liability and liquor insurance and all these sorts of things but essentially opening a restaurant and running it is. It's you're lucky if you make a profit at the end of the day. You're lucky if you make eight percent if you're really operating a restaurant well you're making fifteen percent. I mean these. This is really hard and as we all know who are in this industry it takes blood sweat and tears. I know you know that girl. I mean it is exhausting. You work long hours you suffer through it. And that's because because I feel that we don't really have the foundation in order to help people grow within this industry. I'M NOT GONNA say by any means that I have the answers to this but I do feel that. This is a conversation that we need to start hurt having so we collectively as a hospitality community can figure out how to resolve it because it is going to take all of us together. When I was coming up through the industry you know we we and I am sure anyone that's ever worked in a restaurant knows that this happens? You're a server. The manager gets fired or the manager. Doesn't show up to work and suddenly your manager and.

This is our story <hes> family history. Let's get started and on this episode of five minutes in church history. Let's visit the oldest city in georgia savannah when georgia was his majesty's colony savannah was the capital. It's a port city and go on to play a strategic role in both the revolutionary canary in civil wars. It's charming full of history horsedrawn carriages architectural features good food and it's also full of churches so let's talk about the church history of savannah. We start with john wesley. He set sail for georgia. Uh on october fourteen seventeen thirty five. He reached savannah on february eight seventeen thirty six and he would would leave on december twenty second seventeen thirty seven. There is the wesley monument in reynolds square. Savannah has twenty two squares throughout the town and one of them reynolds square has this great monument statue of john wesley and on it are these words my heart's desire for this place is not that it be a famous or rich but that it may be a religious ages colony and then i am sure it cannot fail of the blessing of god but alas wesley did not fare so well himself in the fair city of savannah. He considered his time there a failure and there was the matter of a very complicated court case that ended in a mistrial. Oh the drama well george whitfield fared much better in savannah. He arrived in savannah. The first time on may seven seventeen thirty eight he opened an orphanage called the bethesda orphan house. It's just south of savannah. It opened in seventeen forty forty. One of those twenty two squares is the whitfield square. It's beautiful and it has a gazebo and i'm sure that if whitfield were were alive today he'd be in that gazebo n._b._a. Preaching so we have wesley and we have whitfield and we also have many churches in savannah in christ church which was established by oglethorpe the founder of the colony of georgia in seventeen thirty three. This is where wesley would have preached this. This is where whitfield preached. There's also the first african baptist church it goes back to seventeen seventy four. This church has pews news that were made by slaves and they marked the pews with words that were from an african dialect and it was also part of the underground ground railroad the first african baptist church and then there's independent presbyterian church it was established in seventeen eighteen fifty five by charter of king george the second a fire destroyed the church building in eighteen eighty nine but it was rebuilt. He built as closely as possible to its original design. The marble baptismal font is still there in the church. It survived the the fire. The church has a magnificent pulpit striking breathtaking that is made of mahogany also breathtaking the tall federal windows the granite floors and the corinthian columns woodrow wilson was married in this church in eighteen eighty five five he married a daughter of the church's minister and of course the church has its famous steeple which towers over the city eighty you should go and see it or if you can't make it to savannah you can simply watch the opening scenes of forest gump a feather dances.

"Priority. They would love to talk to people in the state of Utah about your Senator Mitt Romney. But it is Nancy Pelosi day if you've noticed the media, and you've noticed the quivers and Denise shaking and brow. Wiping in the sudden fits of excitement is Nancy Pelosi is once again to be speaker of the house they've invited. People Nancy Pelosi day, bring the kids. Well, you know, the ones that are alive and have survived et cetera being them, we'll have a barbecue of kind of a stem grown fake meat products grown in a laboratory kind of soy tasting tastes a little bit like chicken, but the rubber variety and we're going to celebrate America. Nancy Pelosi's America well to be precise. Now in North America. We don't want to get to jingoistic on Nancy Pelosi day or. As they've now issued a correction really what we ought to look at is the land mass north of South America that'll be our celebration for the day, the north bland mass north of South America. So all of this around the woman whose daughter now, I don't I'm as I'm a father, and I don't know that this would be the praise at want for my daughter, and maybe you, parents, etc. Maybe give your feedback on this. I have thought long and hard about on the day that I depart this earth, hopefully to go to the Lord I envisioned being there with my daughter, and my wife is a hold my hand. And they say goodbye to me, and I have not envisioned looking at my daughter and having her say dad, I've always admired about you that you will cut people's heads off. And they will not know they're bleeding that has not been my aspiration as a father. But that is in fact, what Nancy Pelosi's daughter has says about her she'll cut your head off before, you know, you're bleeding that's high praise from daughter, but isn't that divisive? And what does this mean, by the way for Mitch McConnell and President Obama if? If you were to advise them, what would you be telling them to do because there's some realities in the operating realities is now with the house of representatives run by the cold hearted hands of Nancy Pelosi cut your head off before you're bleeding. Are there deals to be made? Is there anything that we should do or could do in terms of dealmaking? They don't tend to give the president any form of victory as it relates to a wall. That's very very clear and the sticking point for them. It's nothing to do with money. We all know that I've seen the pieces. Oh, yes. Yes. Yes. Fiscal restraint pay as you go as nothing to do with that. The fact of the matter is this would be very much as a listener to my local show said like Chuck Schumer having a grand a thousand bucks in his pocket, and you ask him for something like a buck fifty to go get a Cup of coffee or a couple of bucks for a Cup of coffee. None of its financial, and they all know that. But the operating reality for Nancy Pelosi something else altogether. She is being flanked on her left in. This is interesting. So you have the fake socialist who's going to go up against the other fake socialist, one of them young and a frac- Brooklyn one of them old am demonstrably corrupt. It's Alexandria or cost you TEZ going up against Nancy Pelosi Cortez's says that she is not going to bow down first round. She's gonna take what is this symbolic vote against Nancy Pelosi and on something this actually decent pays you. Go. Your pays you go legislation. Simply means you gotta cut a little bit to spend a little bit. And it is a sign of the times that in the democrat party. You are able to now watch this young upstart pretend Brooklyn, I her dad was actually the CEO is on architecture company was an architect NCO. So the hardscrabble upbringing head to go down and be a bartender to make ends meet that didn't happen quite as much as she'd like you to know. But Nancy Pelosi now has to deal with this left. Flank and. Folks are getting upset. They're getting concerned kid we deal with Nancy Pelosi. Well, let's take some examples from history we've dealt with it before I was part of a team who ran against her. We ran the fire Nancy Pelosi campaign, and I got to confront her staff when we sent them fleeing from the internet that campaign was so successful because she had so unlikable I'll tell you a little inside information out of Washington DC, I chatted with a congresswoman who was on the floor. When Nancy Pelosi was voting for an abortion Bill. Do you did standing in the wings getting ready to vote for more money for abortions? She was feverishly crossing herself. Now, I'm not anybody's judge professor, a priest. But I don't know that crossing yourself feverishly vote for more abortions is the way to go. But the media wiping their brow fits of heavy breathing. Unable to control their thoughts as they envision of Pelosi. Congress. On NBC is it Samantha gun Guthrie or savannah Guthrie? I don't have a TV. So I don't know. So rely on us. Samantha or savannah, savannah Guthrie savannah Guthrie on ABC talking to Nancy Pelosi. NBC you're probably the most powerful women in government. Pelosi says in the United States. Yes, got three. Yes policy. That's true. Guthrie? Do you think about that? And think about what it means. Do you think about that as a personal accomplishment and Pelosi sits back and triangulate and calculates and things. And no, I think of it as responsibility, I don't think of it as an accomplishment, I think of it as a real responsibility. And how we go forward, and what that means in terms of the lives of American working families, and that's more. This doesn't break a glass ceiling. This is breaking a marble ceiling in the Capitol Hill, the United States. No, I don't think it's quite that momentous side note true or false. This is the first congress in which a woman will be seated who married her brother and lived with him for eight years this false question. And if that's true, how is that not made the media? And if that's true is Nancy Pelosi. You're going to be asked about that. Now in a go forward basis. What you wanna do? Well, look number one is stopped the wall because it is. Core promise of the president United States. It is what he ran upon when he came down the stairs. That's what drew the attention. He stepped on a line and stepped on a button that none of the other Republican candidates would ever do. We'll talk later in the show about professional Republicans ye- what that means to me. It means people who if you were to ask them. What do you do for a living say, well, I Republican what's that mean? Well, that's that's what I do. I republican. So what are your principles? Well, it's about Republican. Well, you conservative. Well, if that's if it's say Republican. Yeah. If it's something else, I'm a Republican Trump has been an antidote to that to professional republicanism. And there are in Washington DC little tiny whispers that this Mitt Romney thing. It's time to go. Right ahead and Nancy Pelosi to put in the minds of the American people this choice, but Pelosi intens investigations Pelosi intends shutdowns of the Trump agenda Pelosi intends to do what she can to try to get a personal attack levied against her by the president she intends to drive or draw him out that way and in terms of policy. Does it matter or does it Mitch McConnell sometimes has in his heart? This knee. The American people she made rich cross out on edge Pelosi. We things we can do to move forward. But they're always deals that we ended up not liking, for instance, so-called criminal Justice reform, Bill not high in that. I know the president signed it. Maybe he sees things in it. I don't see I think we're letting the few too many people out of jail, but he had the details. I didn't have the full details. But it ends up being these things that if Nancy Pelosi Mitch McConnell get together. Then we got to turn to the president. So what do you do in that place? If you're advising how do you advise the president to proceed and the media can't hide themselves CNN CNN on their front page. I took screen shot of the graphic Trump's presidency is about to totally change. He's going to face a new level of opposition. He hasn't yet seen. So we have not seen opposition this president who has been opposed more than any president in history has not seen opposition. I failed to believe that another thing. The Democrats intend to do is go after the tax. Returns to the professional Republicans. Some of you want to see the president's tax returns. I happen if they deal. Let's let's go full transparency. Let's do that such repression. Republicans are you afraid to come back and say, oh transparency. That's what you want to tell you. What why don't we do something? We can do right now today. This instant why don't we go ahead and release all the details and all the names on the congressional sexual abuse slush fund? Why don't you? Give us the details on that all of the abusers. What they're accused of. And how much money we spent because all that takes is a signature from Nancy Pelosi since we're gonna go full transparency and wall work in the debate this Bill about tax returns and ten years of prior tax returns. Why don't we do something else? You can all do. What are we disclose? The details of the work your family members have done where they've drawn down a couple hundred grand on your packs running a couple hundred granted per year or three hundred grand per year. Why don't we see an accounting of the work? They actually delivered to these donor. Owners. Why don't we get that transparent? And while we're talking about transparency. Why don't we go ahead and take through some of the records of the attendance of board meeting you and your family have had were you suddenly ended up on the boards of companies and industries about which, you know, little let's have a look at datas the American people. Let's go full transparency. And let's also do this. Why don't we go ahead and release all in any reports on Russia in how the investigation went about? Why don't we go ahead and declassify any and all of this information since you would like to go full transparency aimed at one guy. This is something I'd love to see the profession Republicans. Those are the people who Republican for a living stand up and say we're ready to play the transparency game in the Romney timing. Right next door to Pelosi taking a seat. Look, I can believe that mitt is a good guy in his personal life. And I know this in my judgment. He's a cardboard cutout of a man. He's kind of our Hillary Clinton in a way, he's not corrupt. But I don't think he exists because he's really just a walking amalgamation of the polls Stott Herman in for Rush Limbaugh on the EIB network will get back into your calls. You're listening to the network six.
