Hello and welcome to Red Pill Revolution, my name is Austin Adams, and today we have a jam packed episode for you guys covering the wildest and most controversial topics of the last week. First. We gotta get this one outta the way cuz it's kind of a big one. is discussing Alec Baldwin's recent charge of involuntary manslaughter in the tragic, horrific death of Helena Hutchins. If you could recall on the set of Russ, we'll be diving into all the details of that case and examining his role in the absolutely preventable tragedy that occurred. After that, we will be discussing the recent arrest of teenage climate activist Greta Thunberg will be exposing the truth behind her recent so-called arrest and examining her role in the larger globalist agenda. We'll also be discussing the recent controversies surrounding Philadelphia Flyers defenseman Ivan Prove. And his decision to sit out during a warmup skate that involved wearing a gay pride themed hockey jersey. And, uh, he did so due to his religious beliefs and he got interviewed and it was, it was pretty interesting. We'll also be discussing stephen Crowder, I'm sure you have heard of him, as well as the Daily Wire, ran by uh, Ben Shapiro. Um, basically incentivizing their creators to walk the line of big tech censorship in order to maintain their contracted. Which is obviously concerning if you're somebody who is interested in following influencers who are also interested in freedom of speech, right? I if you don't, if, if you have to be weary of speaking your actual opinion when you're one of these little single largest influencers in the space and you have to follow the guidelines of YouTube or fear getting doctor pay. That's an issue, right? So, so we'll discuss that. We'll see. I, I have some differing opinions on the, the matter. I have some differing opinions on who was right, who was wrong. I don't think it's a clear cut answer but I will discuss where I think Stephen Crowder went wrong, where I think the Daily wire is going wrong, and talk about some of the interviews that I listened to surrounding this. Uh, Candace Owen spoke out about this. Basically, every single person from the Daily Wire spoke out about this, and Stephen Crowder has just been. Off on social media about it. So we'll talk about that. And then finally we'll be discussing the recent controversy surrounding actress Jamie Lee Curtis, and her display of a unbelievably disturbing piece of art that she posted that was in the background of a picture she posted on Instagram, which was showing a dead child inside of a suitcase hanging from the wall. In her office it's just so, so disturbing to me how consistently this is coming up, right? How, how often we're seeing these depictions popping up in these wildly successful people's, uh, backgrounds and in their houses, and, you know, we'll talk about all of it. Welcome to Red Pill Revolution. My name is Austin Adams. Red Pill Revolution started out with me, realizing everything that I knew, everything that I believed, everything I interpreted about my life is through the lens of the information I was spoonfed as a child. Religion, politics, history, conspiracies, Hollywood medicine, money, food, all of it. Everything we know was tactfully written to influence your decisions and your view on reality by those in power. Now I'm on a mission, a mission to retrain and reeducate myself to find the true reality of what is behind that curtain. And I'm taking your ass with me. Welcome to the Revolution. All right, to everyone's surprise, finally. Alec Baldwin is facing justice for his role in the tragic and preventable death of Helena Hutchins on the set of his movie. Rust. Prosecutors have actually announced that Baldwin will be charged with involuntary manslaughter and absolutely rightfully so. Recent findings show that Baldwin. Ammunition, live ammunition that was found on the set, mixed with fake ones, uh, with empty rounds. And then the rest of the film crew, basically they, what they found was to have a. Extremely consistent pattern of criminal disregard for safety, which resulted in the death of Hutchins. Now, Baldwin's not the only one who's actually being tried here and has been charged with these things. The armorer onset has also been charged, but we'll get to that in just a minute. The maximum punishment that Alec Baldwin can get out of this is five years. That's the maximum punish. And on, you know, obviously even if he gets the maximum punishment, he's gonna serve two years at some BS celebrity prison where he gets to have his cell phone and watch TV all day. Like it's, it's terrible to think that that is what they're going to give him is the maximum of five years. He literally shh, pointed a weapon on set without checking it, without any proper regard for the safety of firearm. And pulled the trigger, pointing it directly at this woman, which resulted in her death. That's willful negligence. So the fact that five years is all they're talking about at this point is disgusting to me, and it only shows that if somebody else was, in this case, if there was a be like a, a, a, a bunch of buddies filming a, a. Documentary together, and as a result, one got shot and killed on set. You bet your ass if they're not Alec Baldwin, they're getting more serious charges than this. Absolutely positive. They're getting more serious charges in this. And the only reason that this is happening this way is because it's a mainstream set of a movie and it's Alec Baldwin, right? I hope for the family of, of Helena Hutchins that, you know, he actually gets convicted of this, which will be, you know, kind of a stretch given how much money is gonna go behind his legal defense. But along with Alec Baldwin, the film's Armorer who is in charge of weapons on the side, Hannah Guterres Reid will also face two counts of involuntary manslaughter. According to New Mexico First Judicial District Attorney Mary Carmack Al. I think that's how you pronounce her name, Altaz. A L T W I E S. Okay. The first assistant director, David Halls, has also been charged with neglect, with negligent use of a deadly weapon, which is likely to lead to six months of probation. This also goes to show that basically the entire crew had some way, shape, or form involvement in this, and then there is so many steps that should have been taken to where this should have been prevented. Right. There's no reason at all that this should have. But the person who pulled the trigger has a maximum potential sentence of five years now. Baldwin's attorney Luke Nikas, has released a statement claiming that his decision distorts Helena HUD's tragic death and represents a terrible miscarriage of justice, according to them right bs. But let's be real. The only miscarriage of justice here is that Baldwin will face only five. . Right? That's the, literally the only, the only thing that's wrong about this, uh, the only thing that's wrong about the judicial system in this case is not that they're trying Alec Baldwin, it's that they're only going to give him five years when he murdered this woman, a wife, right? Somebody who has loved ones waiting at home for them every single day. And this man's going to get five years and she gets put six feet in the. Now, Baldwin's attorney claims that Baldwin had no reason to believe that there was a live bullet in the gun, but obviously that's no excuse for not checking when you're the one actually pulling the trigger. Right? Baldwin relied on the professionals with whom he worked with, is what the, the quote says here. Um, but at the end of the day, he's the one pulling the trigger. He's the one with the weapon. He's the one who is pointing it in her direction and fir. Anybody, anybody with any sort of firearms experience or firearms training, and you bet your ass that you should go through firearms training. If you're constantly holding weapons in all of these films would've checked that weapon would've had, at the very least. At the very least, been there when it was loaded. Right. And, and, and, and the bigger question here is why was there any live ammunition on the set to. What was the purpose of that? Why would there be any reason for there to be live ammunition on the set? No reason. No reason at all that that should have been the case. Involuntary manslaughter is a fourth degree felony and is normally punishable by up to 18 months behind bars and a $5,000 fine, but a firearm enhancement. Now that would've been terrible, obviously if you just got 18 months, but because of a firearm enhancement on the charges, it could make the crime punishable by a mandatory sentence of five years in jail. Now, mandatory is a nice thing to hear there, right? This is the least that he obviously deserves for doing. Uh, Helena Hutchins family actually came out in support of this. They said that they support them actively engaging in going after him for these charges five years is, is a slap on the wrist. Now, if you recall, like, I don't know, it was a, on the one year anniversary of him shooting her like as if there should be any anniversary there, Alec Baldwin posted on social media and commented, like had the caption that said one year ago today with a picture of her face super. Like almost like it was like her birthday or something like one year ago. Today I married my wife. No. One year ago. Today you shot a woman and killed her in front of you. Could you imagine being on this set? Could you imagine watching this gun go off and this woman die in front of you while on a movie set? How tragic for everybody on the set to have to have witnessed that and he's sitting here posting on Instagram as if it was. Birthday party or something like one year ago today, and then said nothing about it. He got roasted, absolutely roasted in the comments for posting that, uh, but he stuck to his guns on it. He's, he's, uh, just a weird, weird character. Weird character, I don't see how they don't convict him for this with everything that's happened here. And again, like I said, just to set an example here, just to set an example, right? Make sure that everybody involved from now on, I don't know, maybe check the ammunition before you fire it as somebody on the film crew. The next thing we're gonna discuss here is going to. To the surprise of absolutely nobody, Greta Thornberg pretended to be arrested during a protest against the expansion of a coal mine in Germany. As many of you already know, a video of the incident surfaced recently went like crazy on social media. I know I saw all over Twitter on almost every single post where Greta went on there. You know, boasted about how she was there and how the police came. And, uh, all of these news networks came in and were like, Greta Thornberg, arrested. Greta Thornberg arrested. And then , the very first comment on every single one of the news channels was the video of her. And if you haven't seen the video, you gotta go watch. It was a video of her while these two cops were around her holding her there for pictures, like as if this was a, a, a meet and. and then there's all these pictures that go around of her being like held like she's a seven year old child by her parents playing, you know, when you would like get thrown around, like sitting there with this smug little smirk on her mouth. She knew what she was doing, so did her team. Right. She knew where they were going. It's, it's no coincidence that there was an entire media team there to capture this. At some random rally in Germany. Right? Yeah. Probably not a coincidence. Right. Let's, and, and this is the thing about Greta Thornberg. She's not some innocent little child, right? Who wants to save the world. No, she, she's a pawn. She's a pawn being used by a larger global agenda by, by mainstream news corporations, by people like the World Economic Forum elites, all of those major conglomerates out there that are using her as a face and this recently, this recent arrest is just literally just another example of her and her, you know, social media teams and, and, and videographers manipulation for their own gain. Right? Attention, attention, attention. Right. And there's probably no coincidence that it happened while the World Economic Forum meeting was actually going on. So anyways, in, in the video. Greta's participating in like what it says they call a sit-in right before being pulled away from police. But what's even crazier is the fact that later she's seen when she's being, like all these pictures came out of her being pulled by the police and then she's seen smiling and posing for, for the photographers while being held by the police officers. And then one of the police officers actually looks at her and goes, I didn't know you were famous. Can I get a selfie? Hm. Yeah, she wasn't getting arrested. She was taking another five minutes of fame to put on Twitter. Just like her, her back and forth banter with, with Andrew Tate. Right. And, and let's not forget here that the police actually came out and stated that Thornberg was not formally arrested and was just taken to a police fan and they had to take her ID and get her contact information. She was not. , right? She wasn't put in cuffs and thrown in the German jail. Like I said, seems a little bit too convenient to me that you have how many, how many random col, like how many like rallies are there on a daily basis and how many times are there there unbelievable amounts of media coverage. Sit-in with 50 people at it right now. There was a video that went around of like these cops sprinting from one side of the other and just like mowing over some of these protestors. And then later they're taking selfies with Greta. Right? Like why? Why didn't they like tackle her like an outside linebacker like that? That's the video we wanted to see, but the video that we got was probably even better because it. Showing you a peak behind the curtain of what's actually going on here right now. Maybe the police weren't in. . Right. But there was enough, there was enough evidence here to show that, that they at least partook and were not, had, had not had any intention. And the mainstream media came out and ran with it. Right. Every tweet from every mainstream media company was talking about how she got arrested. No, she did not. She took a photo with cops, with, and, and got carried in the mud like a, like a little baby. So stupid and so. You see that and, and this is almost everything she's done, has been a publicity stunt, right? All of her speeches are written for her. All of her back and forth banter on Twitter is ran by a PR team. All of these things that she's doing is not by her own free will. She has a team behind her that is pushing her. And if you wanna know who's probably behind that team, rewind and listen to what I just talked about with the World Economic Forum and all of these political and business elites going, coming out and talking about how we should be eating bug. During the World Economic Forum meeting last week, right. It's, it's very, very evident that Greta Thornberg is playing a game and they're using the media to their advantage to. Keep this conversation going, right? They're using a literal child who, on her own Twitter page claims to be autistic. Like maybe, maybe not the, the forefront, you know, intellectual leader that we're looking for on, on the, the science behind potential changing of our global atmosphere and rising tides. like what is her, what is her actual, like, what are her credentials Did. Is she a scientist? There's literally no credentials that Greta Thornberg has to actually be in the, the position. And I say Thornberg because that's her damn name in whatever part of the, the metaverse that I come from because it was never Thunberg until the last two weeks. I promise you, I talked about this with Andrew TA thing. I know 100% it is the Bernstein Bears and it is gre. Thornberg, 100%. I am from the universe where it is. Thornberg, not Thunberg. Thunberg. How stupid. Anyways. Now we know. Right now we know 100% we see through all of the lies in the manipulation, right? This is not about saving the planet. This is about control and power. This is about raising the conversation of the World Economic Forum elites. This is about you stopping eating meat and starting to eat bugs. This is about you changing your vehicle from a vehicle that you can get gas and put it into the vehicle and drive wherever the hell you want, and changing that into an electric vehicle that they can turn off at a moment's. They don't want you driving a 1990 Jeep Wrangler. They want you driving a Tesla because they can press a button and now you have no transportation because you said something they didn't like on Twitter. This is about social credit scores, right? This is about your personal carbon footprint and obviously this publicity stunt. Was all in an effort to put her name back in the news after the injured Tate thing within a week or two. Like you think it's any coincidence that she's back in the news a week and a two later, right? Of course not. You think it's any coincidence that there happened to be a ton of journalists there waiting to take pictures and photos and videos of her Only at the right times? Besides the one angle that we got where we actually saw that it was a photo op, right? Like. Crazy. Crazy. All right. The next thing we're gonna discuss after this is going to be Jamie Lee Curtis, and her creepy, weird little art that she had on her wall.

Alright, now the next thing is going to be that Jamie Lee Curtis has been caught with a unbelievably disturbing piece of art on her wall depicting a dead child in a suit. Hanging from a canvas in her office in a post on Instagram that was just in the background that she obviously did not realize that she had posted until a bunch of people commented on it, screenshotted it, and then she deleted it immediately. That is right, folks. The Freaky Friday mom is a bit more freaky than we originally Anticip. The art piece in question appears to be a child contorted, like a naked child contorted who looks to be dead or sleeping stuffed inside of a suitcase. Hmm. Makes you wonder a little bit if Jamie Lee Curtis has the same interior decorator as Tony Podesta and Jeffrey Epstein, because if you go look back at some of the photos that they had, it was just as. Right Now, my question around all of this is, who the hell are these artists? How much did this woman pay for this piece of disturbing art? And why do these artists think that people wanna purchase this in the first place, especially at a high price tag to somebody like Jamie Lee Curtis or Tony Podesta or Jeffrey Epstein. All of these people worth millions of dollars. There's no coincidences here, right? No coincidences at all that all these rich and powerful people have weird, sadistic, violent, and sexual art on their walls, right? So there's a market for it, right? Who are these artists? Is what we should be really going after too, right? Is not only the celebrity that did it and purchased the art and put it on their wall and posted a picture of it on, I. But also the artist who decided to draw this and sell it to them, like, don't just go after the celebrity, go after the artist. Let's, let's absolutely find out who these artists were. Who are the artists that Tony Podesta was purchasing his, his artwork from? How about Jeffrey Epstein? How about Jamie Lee Curtis? Let's figure that out. Let's find it out. Who were the artists? That did this, and then we start going after them too. It shouldn't just be about the celebrity who purchased it. It should be about the creator of art because that's who we need to question. What makes you believe that somebody out there wants to spend $27,000 or 220,000, however the hell much money you guys spend on this stupid piece of art depicting a dead, naked child in a suitcase? And why do you think that people want to buy. . Right? That seems to be a pretty good question to me. Right? Not only are we talking about the celebrities, but we're also talking about the artists. That should be a topic of conversation and this immediately on the backs of the Balenciaga situation, right? Immediately. Right. It's like this, this, this, it, it promotes and normalizes the sexualization of children in child. Right. It, it, it raises sincere questions about like, why, why are all these people in, in positions of power promoting that? Why would they want to stare at that every day when I walk into my office at work, the last thing I want on the wall when I'm having a business meeting is a painting of a naked child dead in a suitcase. Who would want that over their desk in their. and then who's stupid enough to post a picture of it on Instagram, , apparently Jamie Lee Curtis. Right? And, and, and I guarantee you she is a holier than thou liberal pointing at everybody but herself and their actions for, for, you know, being what's wrong with humanity, right? No surprises. If that's the case. Now, I don't know if that's a hundred percent the case, but I would not be surprised at all. And Jamie Lee Curtis has not even come out and addressed this at all. She hasn't responded to this. She hasn't talked to any news outlets, none of it. You know what she did? She silenced the comments on Instagram. That's what she did. All she did was get rid of comments. I don't even want to hear from you about my dead child sexualized artwork on the wall in a suitcase. Don't wanna hear. right now. Now, there's an interesting correlation if you wanna dive a little bit deeper into the meaning of art, which is why most people purchase it. What does it make you feel when you look at it, right? How does it make you feel? Some art makes you feel happy. Some art makes you, you know, look deeper into yourself and, and, and, or motivated or, you know, whatever those feelings are. Sad, mad, happy, right? Whatever that is, right? That's what art's supposed to do is drive. What emotion is this driving? Right? But back to the fact that she literally just didn't say a word about it, has yet to say a word about it, and then just disables comments cuz she doesn't want to hear about you being upset that she has a naked child on her wall in a suitcase appearing dead. Right. It, it's, it, it, and here's the problem that I have with this. Absolutely nothing happened with Balenciaga. Right? There was a couple weeks of outrage. Now I hope that their brand plummets and continues to plummet. I think that there's definitely been a little bit of a movement behind looking at people who are buying Balenciaga and promoting it and, and, understanding that this is what they do, right? This is what they're, they, a lot of their artwork that they want to call it entailed these little subtweeting of child exploitation or sa satanism or Right. Whatever it was. Right? So, so, so we, in the same way that you see Kanye just get literally ripped apart and canceled, I guarantee you nobody's doing that to Jamie Lee Curtis. I don't think she's gonna lose her. Chase sapphire. , do you? Probably not. Right. So I, it's sad to see that there's not been more of a conversation around it. Right. And, and, and some people are outraged and some people are talking about it. But if she still gets work after this, like why would anybody wanna be associated with that? right? Who, who are these artists? Why? You know, the fact that she's not even talking about it, right? Not even responding to this. She doesn't even feel the need to, to, to, to put a statement out. Right? So, moving on now, the next thing we're gonna talk about, there's been a ton of controversy surrounding the Philadelphia Flyers and their defenseman, Ivan Prove. Provera, I think I'm saying that right. All right. For those of you who don't know, Provera basically declined to go out during the warmup skates before the game where the team was being made to wear, uh, pride jerseys, like, uh, rainbow pride, gay pride jerseys. Okay. Kind of a weird thing to have your team do in the first place. Um, but the reason that he didn't do it wasn't because he hates gay people. Right? The reason he doesn't do it, he did it, didn't do it, was because he is intolerant of other people, right? He, that's not the, that's not the case. He came out and said that the reason that he didn't want to do it was because of his religious beliefs. When asked about his religious beliefs, he said that he was a Russian Orthodox Christian. Okay. And they were just like pressing him, pressing him, pressing him at this news conference and he's like, if you have any hockey questions, I'm happy to answer them, but I, I don't see the point in me continuing to answer these questions right now. Obviously you guys know this. I'm a big proponent in the First Amendment, and that obviously includes the freedom of religion, right? That's kind of a big one in the United States here, right? The National Hockey League, the United States National Hockey League. . Right? It's a fundamental right now, often overlooked in today's world and undervalued in our society, but he has every right to live in practices of religion as he sees he has every right to decline to wear a pride jersey if that's what he wants to do. Right? And he's did it so respectfully. Like he, he, he didn't come out and condemn gay people and say that he didn't agree with it or the, the trans community. He didn't do any. . All he said was, it's for my religious reasons, I don't feel like wearing it. And he was just getting torn to shreds. Right. He was getting condemned. People were calling for him to be punished and to be fined. Right. A bunch of like crazy left, uh, news organizations were condemning him saying that he should have even gotten like a million dollar fine from the flyers and, and it's, it's crazy. He has absolutely every right to make a personal decision based on. Religious beliefs, and he should not be punished for that at all. Right. It's, IM, it's important to note, right? Like I already said, he, he, he showed no ill will at all towards the gay community, towards the LGBTQ plus Element P community. All he said was he made a personal decision based on his religious beliefs, and he stated that he respects everybody. He did. He didn't come out and condemn anyone, anybody. , right? All he said was, I, it's just not my thing. I'm not gonna go out there and, and, and promote that actively. And he shouldn't have to. He's not a show pony. He's an athlete. He's not an actor. He's not a a a, a brand ambassador. He got paid millions of dollars to go play hockey, not to go pay, play political games for the Philadelphia Flyers organization. And what's funny about this is you see the reaction and where nobody wants the NHL to be. The NHL the last three to four years has gotten extremely woke, right? I grew up playing hockey since I was three years old, till I was 18. I did pretty good. I played triple A hockey, uh, in, in, you know, a very, very competitive area growing up and. You know, the, the hockey community was always generally right leaning, I would say. Um, it was generally in, in more higher income areas, which has an association there. But, but it was never, like, it was never used. The NHL was never used in the same way the NBA was being used. It was never used in the same way. The NFL even like with, with, uh, what's his name? All the football players Right. Kneeling during the national anthem. That wasn't happening in the nhl Right? They weren't playing the political games. And, and recently, you know, the, the, the NHLs Twitter is like, uh, or for a while at least I know it was like a, a pride flag in the background. Like . I saw something from the Babylon bee that says, if Ivan Pavlov said , that, that if he wanted to, If he wanted to promote gay pride, he would've played soccer It was like the greatest, the Babylon Bead does not miss, not once, almost everything they post is just unbelievable. Um, alright. Let's see what else we got here. Oh yeah, his jersey sold out completely right. His number nine Jersey sold out on, on the online NHL shop and the fanatic store. Worldwide after he, he did this, right? So it goes to show you that there are many, many people out there that share his beliefs and share the value of, you know, share in believing the value of religious freedom in the right to personal choice, right? Politics should stay outta sports. There's no reason for it. Athletes should absolutely not be punished for making personal decisions based on their political, religious, uh, ideological beliefs, philosophical beliefs, none of it, right? I'm quite proud of the community for standing up and showing that with their dollars, right? Nobody was, nobody was, you know, at least from that perspective, like maybe some media companies and stuff were calling for him to get fined, but as, as a consumer base, the, the hockey community rallied around him and obviously showed with their money that they don't care for your pride. Jerseys in warmups. You got the wrong. Guys. Right? This is not the n l this is not the nba, right? And apparently this isn't the, uh, you know, , the World Cup of Soccer. Um, anyways, and as a reminder, the Supreme Court ruled seven to two. Right when you were called back in 2018, the Supreme Court ruled in favor of the baker when it came to baking a cape for a gay couple around, around their religious beliefs. Supreme Court ruled seven to two overwhelmingly in favor of the baker to express its political beliefs, even in a business context. . Right. And this isn't even for him, a business context. If I, I, I promise you it does not say that he has to wear gay pride jerseys in his warmups, in his contract with the Philadelphia Flyers Right? I, I would be very, very surprised if that was the case, right? I, I'm pretty sure that's not, not what would've ended up being in his contract. Now, the next time they signed somebody, it might be after this happened, although they'll lose out on the Jersey sales, which would probably. . They don't care about that. They care about looking woke to the companies who are buying advertisements from them. Right? And that's the bigger problem with this. They're not even concerned about their base anymore. They're not concerned about what people want to consume because I promise you, a vast majority of the NHL consumer base is not liberal. Majority of the players who grew up playing hockey, at least in the United States, are not liberal. You're not going to find an Antifa member on basically any of the NHL teams. You're not gonna find somebody with a Black Lives Matter sticker on the back of their car, like I said, on very, very few NHL players cars. Right? It's not a liberal sport per se. Not definitely not as much as the NBA or the nfl, right? They, they're trying to make it that way so they can play ball with these big corporations who want them. , right? I don't know who owns the NHL at this point, but I wouldn't be surprised if it was Disney. So anyways, I'm glad to see that that was the outcome, at least, right? I'm very happy to see that people spoke with their dollars and made this happen in this way where there was a positive outcome for him, right? I hope he got some royalties out of those jerseys. At the very least, . All right, the next thing we're gonna. Is going to be, um, Stephen Crowder and The Daily Wire. All right. In the world of conservative entertainment, uh, there has been rising tensions between two of the biggest players in the game. That is Stephen Crowder and the Daily Wire. The Daily Wire being. Owned, or at least ran, you know, the, the face of the Daily Wire is Ben Shapiro, right? You have people like Candace Owens, you have, you know, uh, Clavin, you have, uh, Brett Cooper, you have, you know, all of the mainstream, the largest influencers in the conservative space come from or are some way associated with Daily Wire. The few that aren't are like Tim Pool. And that's about it. Stephen Crowder, right? Those are like the two really, really big, huge, massive platforms that aren't in some way associated with the Daily Wire, which I think is awesome. I think it's really cool what the daily wire's trying to do with the Daily Wire plus. Coming out with movies with people like Gina Carrano, right? There's so much positivity coming out of there that I was like, really disappointed to see this come up, right? This, this, this is not a conversation I want to take a side in, right? I'm, I'm in full support of the Daily Wire. I really like Ben Shapiro's content. I love Jordan Peterson. You know, Brett Cooper's great her, her social media content and everything. Top notch. Uh, Candace Owens obviously one of the most intelligent and, and well-spoken people in the conservative space. Uh, the list goes on, right? Uh, the, the, what is the woman documentary? All of it. All of it, all of it is incredible stuff. So, and been a fan of Steven Crowded for quite some time. I love his content and his comedy, everything. So like, this is not something where I really wanna like, wear a jersey in this. Now I have opinions about all of it, and I'm gonna tell you all of them. , uh, but it hurts me to have to even, you know, choose sites here. I'm not exactly doing, but I'll tell you what I find wrong and right with both sides of the argument. And you can distinguish for yourself what you think my total overarching beliefs are. But I don't think I have a exact side that I believe in here anyways. So this week, Stephen Crowder came out and publicly accused the daily wire of designing their influencer's contracts to tow the line of big tech censorship policies, or at the very least, have to. Have their pay be docked for every single violation against them, right? So if you have a YouTube platform and you get demonetized, if you have a Facebook and you get a strike against you from YouTube or a, uh, demonetized from Facebook, or you get a violation from Instagram, every single one of those things has a like stepping percentage that you lose of your income as a result of being demonetized. Right now, I think there's. Something to be said about that, and we'll get into that in just a moment. But, we'll, let's go on. Um, in a video posted on his channel, Crowder stated that Big tech is in bed with Big con, big con being conservative, right? So talking about the Daily wire, daily wire's obviously the biggest conservative platform out there, right? So, and he went on to criticize. An offer that he received from the Daily Wire without specifically naming the company right sees the next day. The Daily Wire ceo, Jeremy Boring, posted a response video in which he confirmed that the company had initially offered Crowder a whopping $50 million contract, but also claimed that Crowder was misrepresent, had misrepresented what was in the. Right. Boring. Also denied that Daily Wire was working with big tech companies to censor conservative voices and stated that the company has also been a victim of big tax alleged censorship, obviously with all the people that you're talking about here. Right. So, um, he read the contract verbatim, right? That, uh, boring is is the, uh, ex or president or vice president of the Daily Wire, right? He, he was, um, and, and this is the, like one of the bigger problems here is that Crowder is like friends with these people and. Came out in this big like gotcha moment and re released a recording that he had a conversation with. Boring and boring. Said something about, it sounded to me like the discussion went like this. Like they were talking about how Crowder had a problem with the clause in the contract. And it wasn't a contract, it was a term sheet. And the difference between the term sheet and the contract is that one's binding and to be signed, the term sheet is to start the negotiations, right? So in the term sheet that they originally gave to Crowder, which generally ends. Causing negotiations, not, you know, recorded phone calls in released social media stuff. Uh, the term sheet said, you know what, those stepping down demonetization percentages were for his pay of that 50 million if he got demonetized on any of those platforms or strikes or whatever. Right. , and that's the problem with this, is that those strikes mean that you have to watch what you say. Right now there is a part of the Daily Wire, the Daily Wire Plus that's coming out where you can kind of negate that issue, right? The, the hope is that they replace YouTube with the Daily Wire Plus, I would assume, right? And in that case, hopefully they wouldn't have to, to watch their mouths and their opinions. But at the very least what happens is the Daily Wire takes on these smaller. Influencers and brings them up through their platform, right? That's the idea at least. So they take these contracts, they give them to the person, they pay them a salary, and then they take ownership of all of their content, right? All of the videos, all the podcasts, uh, per, you know, cost and advertisements and space, and they give you a salary, let you grow your brand, and then, you know, eventually your contract needs to be renewed. And hopefully you can, you know, renew it at a really, Millions of dollar contract like they were offering Crowder to begin with. And so where Crowder had a problem with that is he felt like if they're doing the same thing to up and coming influencers, right? Saying that, you know, what about that young person that they're gonna be hiring to bring up through the ranks And you know, if they're gonna be, you know, have to watch everything they say and, and or fear of getting their percentages paid because people were like kind of pissed that he was even upset when they're offering him 50 million over four. Crowder went back and asked for 140 million in a pretty interesting way of negotiation. Tried to get them to immediately triple the amount that they were offering him. Um, but anyway, so that was the term sheet. That was what he had a problem with. And then he came out and said, you know, in, released a recording, right, Crowder. Basically said that, uh, the, the feud started with these two figures when the large scared divisions, right? The, while Crowder accuses them of betraying conservative principles, right? The, the, the principle of freedom of speech, of not holding back what you're thinking and, and, and not having to give into big tech censorship right now. despite the tensions of the disagreement, right? I think the biggest thing here needs to be the freedom of speech aspect, right? We, we need to maintain on the right side, at least to the anti left side of things, the anti woke liberal ideology, that freedom of speech above. All right? So I get Crowder's point in that. I get why he came out and had a problem with this, but I don't get his approach in the way. He recorded a phone call with a friend and then released this gotcha clip. What the clip said. Stephen Crowder recorded the clip, and in the clip you see them kind of discussing the, the thing that I just talked about, which is the docking of pay based on percentages and, and if you get a violation from social media platforms and Crowder released a clip of him talking about, of boring talking. How they go about that salary way and say, you know, that's how we do it. We bring them on and they're wage slaves and they can grow their brand and build a following and then go off and, and be famous basically. Right? That's what we do. We bring them on, give 'em a salary if we think that they can make great content, and then we let them flourish later. Uh, you know, we, we allow them to, to build a platform while making. at the same time instead of out here bootstrapping it like you, boy, trying to make it happen without anybody. So, Crowder released the clip of him saying wage slaves. He like slowed it down a bunch of times, wage slaves, word slaves, and, and, and it was, it was supposed to be this big Got you moment. Now I understand what he means by wage slave. Wage slave is not like this ridiculously insulting term. It just means that you are slave to the wages that you're making in order to make your bills. Right. I understand that concept. It's not this like crazy, you know? Idea that like Crowder was trying to play to his base and make it seem like boring was insulting all of these influencers on, on these types of salary contracts. I don't really see much wrong with what he said in the recording. I don't at all. I don't see any reason that it should have been this big gotcha moment. I don't see any reason that Crowder should have thought this was gonna like drive a ton of interest in, in his debate with these people. Right. So I, I don't agree with it. It seems wrong to me that Crowder and to begin with was recording a phone call with somebody he considered a friend, you know, boring. Came out and said in the tweet like, I, if I recorded it, I would've released the part where we talked about his kids and buying and how Christmas went and buying diapers for his nephew or son or something like that. Right? He's, he's basically saying like, man, , uh, I feel stupid because he was recording my phone calls all along, right? And these negotiations had happened like months ago. It wasn't like this was a super recent thing. And what Tim Poole found out live while on an episode with Candace Owens discussing this, was that from one of his audience members commenting was that. The big, you know, say like what the, whatever the URL that he had, like say no to Big Con or something like that.com that he registered, was registered 12 days before the negotiations like fell through or so before something happened that caused him to make this move. So what that led to everybody to believe is that this was calculated, right? That was like Candace Owen's position was that, you know, he's only doing this to make money. She called him a bad person. She said that, you know, he, he burned all these bridges with all these people and, and now he's like off on an island on his own. And now he's trying to build a following on his own platform because everybody said no to him at the amount of money that he was asking for the 140 million over four years or whatever. So understandable. That seems frustrating to me. That seems like kind of shady, that you would record a conversation with somebody you considered a friend if that's what happened, and then kind of weird for him to play this like gotcha clip that kind of really didn't have much to do with the actual, uh, negotiations that he had problems with. It seemed to me like he would've been better off coming out and actually having a discussion about how bad the contract clause. The cause of the right or libertarian movements that are happening right now. Because if I have to fear YouTube's strikes for my family to be fed, then I have to watch what I'm saying. every single time I speak on, on the microphone. Right? And that changes the way that if, if it's a, if you're making a hundred thousand dollars a year or $200,000 a year or whatever, Brett Cooper, or somebody who's newer like that is making a few hundred thousand dollars, I would assume that that money is important to you. If you're gonna get docked 20% of your pay, that's gonna significantly impact you. Or two, you could get down to like only 20% of your pay if you get demonetized on several. So if you're making like $200,000, $400,000 a year and you get docked 80% of that, then you're making what, like 40 grand like. Would be atrocious. Right. $80,000 a year for the type of work that they're doing and the breach that they have. Like that's crazy. And so I get that right. It makes sense that there would be, you know, some type of push towards trying to have these contracts not include something about YouTube censorship or Instagram violations or anything like that. I also get that the Daily Wire is a business who is expecting the monetization of their shows to pay for the salary of the person who they're paying to own their content of, right? So it is definitely an incentive to self-censor on one side of it. And the second side of it is, From a business perspective, it's only, it's kind of like a necessary evil in today's world, at least until the Daily Wire Plus gets to where it needs to be, to where it's generating enough revenue to pay for influencers to come in and build an audience specifically on their platform, and not the ones like YouTube, Instagram, Facebook, TikTok, all of that, right? So I see both sides. . I don't know who's in the right and who's in the wrong. I do know that I don't necessarily agree with the way that Stephen Crowder came out and did this like gotcha moment recording. I don't think that that was really the right move, especially if you're, if he was a friend. Right. And, and, and I also kind of disagree with the way that he burned all these bridges in hopes of building. His own platform because the whole movement that ever that is going on here, freedom of speech, freedom of choice, freedom of religion, right? The, the political movement that we're hoping for is the anti woke, anti-censorship movement, right? And, and so on one side of it, again, I get why this would be frustrating for somebody to negotiating a contract, trying to make this movement move along and be better, right? But I also get the business perspective of the daily wire. I don't know. I'd be interested to see what you guys think, you know, comment, whatever on the videos here. You know, comment on YouTube. Uh, speaking of YouTube, go join the YouTube. If you're not on the YouTube, I post the video episodes every single week. Right. You can go to my Link Tree, any of the social medias, you can go to the sub. It will all be linked on their red pill revolution.dot com or red pill revolution.co. I will be updating the website here over the next week or two and we'll be starting to put out articles and blog posts and news articles that we're, uh, I'm going to be writing up for you guys and distributing them through the subs deck as well. So make sure you sign up. All right. Now, as far as this situation goes, I don't think this is good for the free speech movement, although Brett Cooper did come out and say, That, you know, Brett Cooper's, I think 22, 21, 22, um, phenomenal. Really like her content. She does a great, great job at, uh, obviously, like she's, she's very, very sharp. Um, her content on social media is, is very well done. Her lives, everything. She does a really good job at it. You know, all almo, all of the influencers at the Daily Wire are, are like top notch. And so that's why I don't think that this is, this is. right? This overall like tension. Now this is probably the most drama we've had in the Conservative party, at least since like Trump was in office. So it is, it is, uh, an interesting time to be, you know, not on the left side of things. Uh, but Brett Cooper came out and said that this was not in her contract because o one thing that came to Owen said is that she had a problem with the fact. Steven Crowder specifically talked about young and upcoming influencers, and there's only one , young and upcoming influencer. And that's Brett Cooper, right? She's 22, 21, 22 years old. Um, maybe 23, I don't know. But right around there. And she's, you know, had she said, which is crazy to me that she had like 7,000 followers last year at this time. And now she has millions, which like, you know, daily. Call you, boy. I'll jump on there. Take Steven crowd's place. , and, uh, yeah, I'll, I'll, if you wanna pay me, uh, 50 million, I'll be happy to, to, to, I won't even talk about anything that you don't want me to talk about. I won't even bring it up. I won't. I'll, I'll try not to blink. I'll, uh, I, I'll, I'll, I'll do whatever you want. Just, just for 50 million. That's fine. I guess I'll do it. So Daley Wire, call your boy. I'm happy to take the 50 million contract and I'll censor myself some from literally saying anything you want me to, I'm happy to do it. Happy to do it. Call me up, you know, Austin Red pill revolution.co. Send me an email. Uh, anyways, but seriously, uh, Brett Cooper said that this was not in her. She said that, you know, and that was something Candace Owens kind of took issue with, was that he was specifically kind of alluding to her contract and, and she came out in a live video yesterday and said, that's not in my contract. I sounds like she negotiated out of it actually. Uh, which it also seems like Crowder could have actually negotiated his way out of it like many of these other people did. Um, but chose to, I don't know, do what he did instead. , but it doesn't seem like all of the people on the Daily Wire actually have that sort of clause in there. So is it in all of the new ones? Maybe. I don't know. I don't know. But it, it is definitely not a good look if we're trying to promote freedom of speech, if you're having to have your influencer self censor. Right? Uh, but for 50 million, eh, maybe anyways, that. Is what I got for you guys. Thank you so much for listening. Go ahead over to red pill revolution.dot com. I will actually be posting articles about each one of these topics this week. Um, I'll be sending them out in the ck I will be, uh, sending out the, the podcast companion. Over the next day or two.

It's a Fairbanks Friday edition of the Locked On FLORIDA Panthers Podcast, as Nick Fairbanks(@Prudentia0) joins Armando Velez(@Mandoman12) to discuss the Panthers win over the Canadiens 6-2 at the Bell Center, where the Panthers scored 5 goals in the second period(4 on the Power play), after consistently dominating the zone time in period 1 and missing the net(and shots getting blocked) in the first period. The Panthers take advantage of the Canadiens' 3 Bench Minors in the 2nd period as well, and the Cats were living in the dirty areas all night. The Panthers faced some adversity early as they lost Sergei Bobrovsky to injury and in came Calder Cup Champion Alex Lyon who went 23/25 on the night. Panthers also lost Eric Staal in the first period after an interference from Former Panther D Mike Matheson(which there was not penalty called) as well. The game got really chippy in the 3rd period as both penalty boxes were full, with a combined 90 PIM on the night, with multiple fights and misconducts.

Full Hour | Today, Dom led off the Dom Giordano Program by discussing the updates around Philadelphia Flyer Ivan Provorov, who went viral after refusing to wear a LGBT Pride jersey in pre-game warmups, using his Russian Orthodox religion as a defense, which triggers the Left. Then, Dom tells that Alec Baldwin has been charged in the shooting death of a crew member on his film, Rust, which gives him reason to play back a time when Baldwin worked as a host for 1210WPHT. Then, Dom tells about an Inquirer article reporting on the crime situation on the campus of St. Joseph's which targets gun violence and poverty, again failing to lay any blame at the feet of progressive policies employed by Philadelphia politicians. Also, Dom previews an appearance coming up from Jim Worthington, who recently received his first settlement as he fights to protect his reputation from falsities spewed center around his role in the January 6th riot on Capitol Hill.

My first memory of pro football was Super Bowl 22. I picked the Broncos to win, and, even though they didn't win, I followed them from that point on.John Elway was (and is) my favorite player. I have played as the Broncos on Tecmo Bowl, Tecmo Bowl Super Bowl, Madden, and 2K Sports. I fondly remember the moments when the Broncos won Super Bowls 32 and 33.Around this time, the Oilers came to Tennessee. I was hooked. I finally had a team just down the road from my hometown of Bon Aqua. Oiler (and later Titans) mania hit this area. Jerseys, hats, footballs, merchandise, and several autographs later, I'm a Titans fan through and through. It's the dedication, the love, and the passion for football that helps me realize that football is family. Each fan base has a story, a history, and a love for their team. That's what I want to talk about each and every podcast.You can follow me @jeremy_mcfarlin. Message me if you want to share your reasons why your football team is family.

Argentina plays France today in the 2022 World Cup final. The U.S. team bowed out on December 3 when they went down 3-1 to the Netherlands. But soccer, it turns out, has a long history in the United States, thanks to its popularity among immigrant workers from European countries. From 1927 to 1935, the United States Communist Party (CPUSA) established the Labor Sport Union, a coalition of worker athletic clubs, primarily located in the urban Northeast and Midwest. The CPUSA's 1925 sport manifesto emphasized that sports should be used as a medium for class struggle and even to create “proletarian fighting units against militarism and fascism.” One of their successful sporting accomplishments was the Workers' Soccer Association, or WSA, which organized leagues in New York City, Chicago, Detroit, Cleveland, Philadelphia, and Pittsburgh. This communist soccer league played two seasons per year and competed for city, regional, and national championships. On today's show, history professor Gabe Logan recounts the history of the Workers' Soccer Association and explains an overlooked aspect of U.S. soccer that intersected political ideology, labor, and athletics.

Have I mentioned that knitting is my favorite winter activity? Things have slowed down and I can have some time to catch up on my knitting projects. The garden has been put to bed. I'm still making cheese, butter and yogurt, but canning is done for the season. I have even gotten all the frozen fruit out of the freezer from this past spring and made the promised cherry and blueberry jams. For the first time, I made brandied figs. This and so much more coming up in this podcast episode. But first . . . Welcome to all the new listeners and a hearty holiday season welcome back to the veteran homestead-loving regulars who stop by the FarmCast for every episode. Thank you, thank you, thank you. I appreciate you all so much. Let's get on with some homestead updates. Our Virginia Homestead Life Updates Let's talk about the animals first. We love all of our animals. What would our homestead be without our animals? Pretty boring, don't you think? Cows Finally, we have good news on the bovine front. We believe that all of the cows are now bred. Glory Be to God. Natural breeding is superior by far. We have one calf scheduled for birth on March 5th 2023. Then the next two will be around the 16th of July. Then the bull comes along and we have six that will give birth between August 4th and September 4th. Here is the run down. Princess Princess is a lovely purebred A2A2 Jersey heifer, soon to be cow, giving birth to that first calf around the 5th of March. We used sexed AI semen for her so her calf will be 50% Jersey and 50% Normande and likely a girl, a heifer. She looks great and we are anticipating great genetics in her calf. She is small and so is her mom. Not quite miniature Jerseys, but close. Rosie is her mom and in her first lactation cycle she was giving us about three gallons of milk per day. We will expect a similar amount from Princess. We plan on selling her in the future as we move to a 100% registered Normande herd. Keep your ears open about when she comes up for sale as she will make a fantastic milk cow for some lucky family. Rosie Speaking of Rosie, she is in the second group of two giving birth in near the middle of July. Rosie is also a registered A2A2 Jersey. She was bred via AI to the bull Fullblood French bull Jacaranda. The semen was unsexed so the gender of her calf will be a surprise. This calf will also be 50% Jersey and 50% Normande. We will be keeping heifer calves that are 50% Normande, but like her daughter, Rosie will come up for sale sometime in the near future. Ginger Ginger is the second animal giving birth in mid-July. She is 75% percent Normande. That means she is not recognized as purebred, but her offspring will be as their percentage will be high enough to meet the minimum standard. The sire is also the Fullblood French bull Jacaranda. Ferdinand's Offspring The last group of six are all bred via Ferdinand. You will recall that he is the Guernsey bull that we purchased a couple of months ago. He did his job well. In one month, two hormonal cycles, he has impregnated all of our remaining cows and heifers. At least it appears so as of this recording. I'm not sure if we will be able to registered his offspring as 50% Normande. I'll have to check on that. Violet, Virginia and Wanda are all purebred Normandes but it may not be enough for proper registration. We shall see. Butter is a registered A2A2 Jersey. And the last two, Molly and Cookie are mostly but not registered Jersey cows. Though they are also A2A2. We will be keeping Molly as she does have 25% Normande genetics, but Butter and Cookie will also be moving on to another family. In the end, four of our cows will be up for sale in the next year or two. They are all great animals, but again, we are building a 100% Normande herd. Each year we will probably move out a couple more as we slowly inch toward our preferred genetic goals. Nickel We have Nickel waiting in the wings to get big enough to be our breeding bull. Ferdinand will have one more round of breeding our cows and then we will also sell him. As you can tell, he is a great bull and will be a wonderful addition to someone's herd. After that, Nickel will be our herd bull for a couple of years. And we will continue using AI as we can to improve the herd genetics. Scott is coming on board as our primary AI technician. Scott's AI Training This is a really great piece of news that I have to share. I mentioned in the last podcst that the idea was for Scott to be able attend an AI workshop and learn to do the procedure himself. Hallelujah, he was able to attend an AI tech training session just a couple of weeks ago. It was literally only an hour away and we made it happen so he could attend. He now knows the basics of how it is done and what challenges he may face. And we have lots of cows for him to practice on as he builds his skill. The first day he came home a little frustrated with his lack of skill. According to him, it is much harder than it looks from the outside. On the second day of the training session, he got the hang of it and all that is left now is for him to practice. The very next time that any of our cows get bred, Scott will be trying out his new skills. That is months and months from now but we are both excited about the prospects of being able to use AI much more effectively. We will share how that goes when we get there. The timing of this training session was truly a Blessing from God. Mack, Finn and Charlotte Now on to the livestock guardian dogs. There is not much to say here. I am still feeling so blessed that Finn returned after six months of roaming the countryside. We are still treating an infection in his left eye. It is a stubborn infection. Sometimes his eye is clear and then it will cloud up again. Just today we aggressively upped the amount of antibiotic cream we are using in that eye to see if we can knock out that infection once and for all. Otherwise, he is putting on weight and is very happy to be home. There was an early escape and one a day or so ago that was my fault for letting him loose with an open gate, but he is still with us. Charlotte is going along just fine. Sometimes she tolerates me petting her and sometimes still she won't let me near her. I just go along and pet her when I can. She is a great dog and I love her so much. Both Finn and Charlotte are currently with the sheep and the goat doelings. There are a couple of calves in there as well. I forgot to talk about Jill and Penny. Jill is currently up for sale if you know of anyone looking for a young heifer calf. We will be keeping Penny. She is 50% Jersey and 50% Normande. All is well in that pasture for the moment. Mack is with the cows. They don't really need him, but what else are we going to do with him. At some point, I would like to see all of the dogs and animals together. I'm not sure that will ever happen. We will always have heifer calves that need to be kept away from the bull and/or vise versa, but bull is kept away from the cows/heifer calves. And then there are ewe lambs and doelings that need to be kept away from the breeding ram and buck. I'm pretty sure we will always have two groups of animals. The best I can hope for is that all the of animals and dogs will eventually become interchangeable. At the moment I don't trust the large animals with Finn and Charlotte and I don't trust the small animals with Mack. So, there you have it. This may be our standard operating procedure going forward. I'll keep you posted. Kiko Goats Now for a little update on the goats. Things are going fairly well in that area. I have managed to tame all of the goats a fair bit. They will follow me anywhere if they think there might be a treat at the end of the road. All are growing nicely. It will be another two months before the girls can meet up with the boy. Lian and Amys are with the sheep and Rhuarc is right next door in the lower garden with a ram lamb as a companion. As soon as the girls are old enough, these two boys will be able to join the main group of sheep and goat girls. Sheep Several ewes are looking quite plump. I expect that we will have lambs in January or February. Not the best time of year, but I have found that these Katahdin sheep are really good moms and the lambs are generally hardy even in winter. If the weather is particularly bad, we can take them to shelter. Otherwise, this breed is very used to giving birth out in the pasture, even in the winter. I have heard of several breeders that specifically breed for birthing in January and February as they are looking for their lambs to reach market size by the time November rolls around and the various religious groups are looking for lamb and goat for their feasts. We may look at that market as well. Otherwise, we like to keep ours all the way up to the 12th month of growth. I'll keep you posted, but the sheep have dogs protecting them at the moment and I expect that we will actually have lambs soon and that we will be able to raise them to market weight without predators running off with them. At least that is the current expectation. Chickens The last animals to discuss are the chickens. Last time I mentioned that Mack had made mincemeat of one of the hens. We still have all of the rest of the hens and roosters. Just a few days ago, we added six new hens to the flock. One of our herd share members had more chickens than she wanted and she gifted us these hens. We are not sure whether they are Cinnamon queens or Rhode Island reds. Either way, they are providing us a couple more eggs a day. Of the eleven others that we have, we were getting 2 or 3 eggs per day. We added half as many hens but doubled our egg production. Now we are getting 5 or 6 eggs per day. Go figure. I don't know if I mentioned that I am looking at perhaps changing my mind of what breed of chickens that we raise. There are always good logical reasons for the breeds we choose for any given animal. However, the literature seems to be flawed on the chicken breeds I chose. I expected way more eggs from the American Bresse and Black Copper Marans. And it seems that the traditional Rhode Island reds are just better at producing eggs. I'll have to look it up. It may be that they are primarily egg producers and not a dual breed chicken. In the end, I may just give up on the whole dual breed idea for chickens. I'm really in it for the eggs. We just don't eat that much chicken so the meat is not a really big deal. That's for another day. In the spring we will do some incubations and hatch out some birds and see where we go from there. In the end, we may just have mutt chickens and forget about trying to raise specific breeds. Right now, as long as they lay lots of eggs, I don't really care. Creamery Let's move on that huge creamery project. Where do we stand with that? All of the floors are complete. As I mentioned in the last podcast, Scott was racing the clock to get that done. The temperature-sensitive nature of the glue and grout were driving that carriage. He made it. There were a few cold days where he had to wait, but in the end, he got it done. There are a few details he is working on for the pull box covers, but other than that, the floors are complete. Next up is the electrical. And of course, the plumbing. That is still looming large in my mind. I don't know how he will do it, but I do know that he will make it happen. It's just who he is as a person. At the moment he is moving his attention to fixing fences in the back fields. There is a good bit of standing hay back there but trees on the fences need to be cleared and those fences repaired. Another task on his calendar is gathering up pine wood for the wood stove this winter. For the past two winters we have not used the wood stove as other priorities and factors interfered with the collecting of wood. This year should be the time that we get back on track with using wood for fuel in the winter and getting that electric bill back down to a reasonable cost. Especially at this time in our economy when prices are rising. These tasks will take away from the time he has in the creamery. But I'm pretty sure we are still on track for USDA certification sometime in the spring or summer. Knitting, Cheesemaking, and Other Milk Products I want to talk a little bit about cheesemaking and other milk products before getting into my knitting projects. Cheesemaking Because we have had so much problem getting cows pregnant, we are currently planning to milk the cows as long as we can before drying them up for birthing their calves. Normally, that would be about a one-year cycle. This time, it's going to be nearly a year-and-a-half. Their milk production will continue to decline over time. And the cold of winter will also decrease milk production. These are additional days of learning and having new trials of which we have yet to have. Currently, the cows are still producing enough for herd share milk and for me to make cheese. I'm perfecting my techniques in cheesemaking and trying a couple of new ideas to improve flavor. We shall see in a few months if my efforts have paid off. Additionally, I'm still making yogurt a couple of times per week and butter every other week or so. It's a bit of a different winter experience to still be dealing with milk after the end of November, but it seems to be working out great for both Scott and myself. So far. I'm happy to continue the creative art of dealing with dairy products. Knitting My favorite winter pastime is knitting. In the summer it's all about the garden – planting, weeding, harvesting, canning and so on. But in the winter, things slow down and I get to take a break. What do I do with all that free time? Well, to be honest, there isn't that much free time. I just do a lot of stuff that was put off because I was in the garden and in the kitchen for every hour of every day in the summer. It's so funny that I have these knitting projects that sit for months on end without any progress whatsoever. Then winter comes and I can work on them. Do I get them finished? I guess it depends on the project. Victorian Newborn Set Knitting Pattern The one I'm going to talk about today is a really beautiful baby layette. It has a blanket, bonnet, booties and sweater. I've been working on the blanket for some time. It is a Victorian themed pattern. Lacy edges and cream or off-white base color. The contrast color is burgundy. I'll put a picture on the Locals platform and maybe I can work one in on the website. Perhaps I'll make it the featured photo on this podcast. Yeah, that could work. I started working on this at least two years ago. It is the most difficult project that I have ever done. First it was all about getting the pattern correct. I must have started over at least four times. That was the first year. The second year (and when I speak of years, remember that it is a few months in the winter) – The second year, it was all about starting the lacy edge. I have taken out that part at least six times. It was late last winter when I discovered that the pattern I was trying to use was flawed. Recreating the Pattern Here's that little story. As I get older, it is harder for me to read small print. And the pattern that I was using was already a year or more old and the pages stuck together and the print was mangled. So, what did I do? Well, I searched on line to try and find a “clean” copy of that pattern. I did find one. It was great for the “rosebud pattern”. It is the main theme in all of the pieces. But when it came to putting the rest of the pieces together, that pattern was a disaster. So, what do I do now? On the evening that I made the discovery that it was the pattern that was flawed and not my knitting skills, I set out to recreate the pattern from the original. And so I did. I spent about an hour in Microsoft Word. (Okay, it may have been more than an hour. At this point, I have no idea. I just know I needed the pattern to work.) I typed out every single instruction, every detail. Then I proof-read what I had typed. It all seemed to make sense. I still have the original just in case I made a mistake. I can go back with my magnifying glass and see if I can decipher what the actual instruction is supposed to be. However, I am pretty confident that I got it right. There is a pattern to patterns and I could see it clearly. After all, I had created it over and over again, incorrectly. So when I saw the correct instruction it made perfect sense. My Greatest Achievement Now to my greatest achievement so far. I've never been successful in making joins look natural. My work has always looked sloppy. But not this time. As I got started once again on this new adventure, I could clearly see the pattern this time. I could clearly see that it was working. I finished the first end of the blanket using a stitch I had never done before. But the instructions were clear and it worked the very first time. Yippee!! That's not the greatest achievement. No the greatest achievement was picking up the stitches on the starting edge of that blanket. YouTube helped me out. I watched a couple of videos on how it is done. In the past I just did the best I could with the instructions which read “pick up and knit X number of stitches. I don't know why it never occurred to me that there was an actual method to make it work smoothly. So, I watched these videos and gave their suggestions a try. Lo and behold, I created a seam that looks unbelievable. The top is just a continuation of the knitting. The bottom has to be created as if it is a continuation. Finishing the First Piece of the Project I never knew I could do such good work. I can't wait to start up the sides. I've already watched that video and I will watch it again before I start on the sides. First, I have to finish the bottom. And I have every confidence that I will make it look just as awesome as the top. Take a look at the picture to see what I am creating. This will be the most awesome knitting project I have ever done. Did I mention it was the hardest thing I have ever attempted? It is going to give me confidence to make the other really complicated pieces. That sweater, hat and booties are waiting in the wings. Now, in closing, I must mention that once I finish these difficult pieces that I already have in progress, I'm going to switch to making hat, scarf, mitten sets to give to the homeless. It's going to be my new mission for quite some time. These are simpler projects, but with a great deal more purpose. I have all of this yarn and patterns for Afghans and such that I have collected over the years. If you are a knitter, you know exactly what I'm talking about. Large Afghans are a lot of work and, when finished, I can only give it to one person. For the same amount of time and yarn, I can make something useful for those in need, several somethings in fact. I don't really know how many hats, mittens and scarves will come out of the vast amount of yarn in my closet. But I'm going to find out. There you have it and that is the end of my knitting story for this podcast. Take a look at the pictures of my current project on our Locals platform. That's peaceful heart farm DOT locals DOT com.

This week I recount my recent trip to Girona, Spain with Trek Travel. Our knowledgeable guides took us on a 5 day adventure throughout the region exposing us to Girona's plentiful and diverse gravel. As a bonus, we were able to connect with a number of local cycling brands contributing to Girona's reputation as the hub of European cycling. Trek Travel Support the Podcast Join The Ridership Automated Transcription, please excuse the typos: Girona Gravel Live [00:00:00] Craig Dalton: Hello, and welcome to the gravel ride podcast, where we go deep on the sport of gravel cycling through in-depth interviews with product designers, event organizers and athletes. Who are pioneering the sport I'm your host, Craig Dalton, a lifelong cyclist who discovered gravel cycling back in 2016 and made all the mistakes you don't need to make. I approach each episode as a beginner down, unlock all the knowledge you need to become a great gravel cyclist. This week on the show, I'm releasing some recordings I did during the tractor on a gravel tour. I participated in, in November. It was a great trip. I encourage you to check it out on Trek's website and I appreciate Trek's support in getting the over there to have this wonderful experience. With my friend. Was able to sit down with our guides as well as some other members of the Jarana cycling community. To give you a flavor for this wonderful cycling city. I hope you enjoy and let's dive right in Day 1 [00:00:56] Craig Dalton: Right here we are, day one, Trek Gerona Gravel tour here in Gerona, Spain here in the hotel. Nord got set up on my Trek demo bike. Not the one you'd expect for these gravel trips, but it turns out the gravel roads here in Gerona are pretty smooth and you don't need the big wide tires that I typically ride at home. So we're riding a 35 C Pirelli tire on these Damani bikes. The great thing was, Sent them over. My fit measurements had everything dialed, so it was just some quick adjustments Right before the ride. Today we did about 25 miles today as a shakeout ride. Riding along, essentially along the river, out and back on either side of the river, which a lot of fun. We got into some single track. Super smooth. Not a lot of elevation today. That's gonna come tomorrow where I'm excited that we're riding off to the Mediterranean. So great first day. Great intro. The guides. Rafa and Mickey are awesome. Mickey's a local here in Jerron and Rafa's from London. Bringing a little bit of international flavor to the trip. We've got a group of about six of us, so it's pretty easy to keep people together. I've got two friends from San Francisco along for the ride, so that is a joy and a pleasure. More later in the week, and I'll get some commentary, a little bit more specifics about the writing from Mickey Rafa along the way to to give you an idea about what to expect. It's a five day experience here in the Jonah Gravel tour. They've got some other options I think, coming online next year, but super excited for the days to come as the mileage is gonna creep up, and I'm told the technicality is gonna creep up as well. So super excited for that. We'll see how these 35 C tires on the demos go, but I'm confident we've got the right equipment for the job. Day 2 [00:02:50] Craig Dalton: Okay, so on day two of the Trek Gerona gravel tour today, we did about 60 miles of gravel, about 1800 feet of climbing on our way to the Mediterranean beach, the Mediterranean Ocean. We started in Gerona and followed the prominent river all the way to the east. Surprisingly, the whole ride, we were on gravel roads, beautiful gravel. Started out getting outta town on some small paths right next to the river. Some real fun single track to wake you up and then onto some amazing roads through forests. There's a lot of forests here. We were told that the trees that were being planted there were for the paper industry. They were super beautiful tall trees and lined in rows, and we just weaved throughout them until 29 kilometers later. We met the van, the Trek travel van, and our second guide Mickey, who had water refills and food and everything we needed for the second half of our ride out there to the coast where we went through orchards, basically this incredibly smooth gravel road. Very, very little car traffic. I think maybe we saw a few, maybe three vehicles out there the whole day, but super pleasant ride. Relatively flat for 60 miles, only 1800 feet of climbing. We got to the ocean to meet Mickey in the van again. Had an amazing lunch and a few of us decided we were gonna jump into the. It wasn't exactly warm, but it wasn't unpleasant. It was so fun to kind of get off the gravel bike in the middle of your ride and go for a swim and play around. And one of the riders, James, my friend from San Francisco, took a nap on the beach while we were in the water and we had to rouse him to get him back on the bike for our 45 kilometer return home. Adding up to, as I said, 60 miles and no idea why I'm converting miles to kilometers and vice versa. Including them in the same sentences. But anyway, I'm a bit groggy from the ride. The legs are taken a little bit to get used to it, but it's been amazing. The town's been amazing. We, we spent sunset at, on the wall here in Jerome, next to the big church, and you can see the purities and the sun was setting right over the pys. Pretty incredible Second day. Getting ready for the third day, which I guess is a little bit more technical. I'll get some of the guides on to describe some of the terrain, excuse me, that we're going through and we'll see how the legs hold up. Day 3 [00:05:29] Craig Dalton: Day three of our Jer gravel cycling tour with track travel. Today was a little bit more technical, especially with the 35 Sea Tires. We got out into some rolling farm roads and definitely off into some single track and double track. That was pretty amazing, the first 30 K or so, rolling farm roads. Just a little bit punchier than we've been experiencing. A little bit looser gravel in most cases. But nothing too technical on the. 30 K of the ride. We had this amazing stop at Ro Roca corba cycling, a new 17th century Chateau kind of building that's being converted into a cycling. Kind of lodge and Airbnb pretty amazing. They took the kind of areas that used to house the cattle underneath the building and made them into kind of the bike room and a little cafe. It's a super like rustic arc, arc ceilings beautiful stonework on the grounds. This beautiful old building, it's being renovated by a couple professional cyclists, ones who's already retired, and one who's in the Women's Pro tour today. So that was really special. Kind of get to tour that facility and definitely something. It's about 30 kilometers outside of. Jer. So kind of an interesting place to stay. You know, the ideal might be stay in Gerona for, you know, four or five days and then go out there for three or four days, or two or three days to just get a little bit of different starting point. It's a little closer to closer to some of the climbs particularly for the roadies. So, you know, if you're interested in getting out and hitting some of those climbs and having a little less distance in your legs from Gerona, that's a good option. Once we left there, the riding got a little bit more technical through some farms. Took a lot of single track. Some punchier climbs actually reminds me of what I recently experienced at, at big sugar in Arkansas. Kind of loose gravel, the sense definitely some loose gravel pushed the technical capabilities. Clearly. Track is the, has done a really good job of making roots that are gonna explore different areas of your gravel cycling ability again today. Was definitely on the more technical side, particularly if you were a newer rider of which we had at least one in today's ride. And you know, you could. Some of them were, some of the dissents were definitely making them think, but everybody went through fabulously. We even got to stop at the property, which my one of the guides fathers owned, and I'll get him on to talk about that a little bit. But it was great being able to reminisce with him and he learned to swim up there. His father owned a restaurants, a typical Catalan food restaurant in this really beautiful building, which was kind of cool to see. Then we rolled back into, I'm always looking at the GPS and amazed that, you know, we could be within seven kilometers of Jerome and still in these amazing forests and woods, riding gravel, basically all the way back into town. So another great day out there. It's interesting how they've explored. The first day was kind of getting to know your bike a little bit. Second day was that long. Ride out to the beach. Not very technical. Beautiful, beautiful gravel roads today being more technical, and we'll see what the next two days have to bring us. Day 4 [00:08:46] Craig Dalton: All right. Day four, Gerona gravel. Definitely woke up feeling a little tired, not gonna lie. Fourth day riding in a row with some big climbs. Yesterday. Got a massage yesterday afternoon, which was awesome and quite affordable here in Gerona, which was a bonus. Got up this morning, got the bikes ready. We got the route loaded up. We were riding through the fields. Kesier de Las Selva known for the cork. It's cork production. So they actually, it was kind of interesting. They, the trees kind of about five feet kind of from the ground up. Five feet they chop and that's the cork that they used to make cork bottles, flooring, everything. So that was super cool to see. We continued rolling through some dirt roads through there, through the mountain range of Lis gravis. Then we tackled a famous road climb called Santa Aea, known as the George hie Climb for Local. This was awesome. I mean, I know we're here to talk about gravel and the gravel was great that first half of the morning, but that road climb was spectacular as well. I kind of felt like it was a bonus, obviously, like we signed up for a gravel trip, but to be able to do kind of a famous climb, road climb was amazing. It was great gradient, fantastic descent. Right at the bottom of it, we turned up another dirt road and had a a 12 K climb to lunch. Great climb kind of loose. Actually more similar to riding I do at home than the first couple of days. So that was interesting. Got up to a church where Salvador Dolly was married, had some lunch, then we dropped down the kind of backside of that climb. But before we got to the bottom in Jer, we took another hard right and got into a trail system right above. Rode some steep descents through and down back into town. Those steep descents were very much like mount ta. You know, maybe 12, 15% grade going down and loose. A lot of fun. I discovered by the time I got back to town that I managed to cut the sidewall of my. But fortunately the sealant held and it was all good for me to roll back into town. We dropped a few people off and ended up going on an extended loop, a pretty vicious climb on the extended loop they call extended loops for the avid riders. My legs were screaming at me, but it was a, it was a lot of fun. We were kind of just, again, in that same area going up into the ELs Angels climb area. Steep dirt climbs pretty loose. We grinded that climb for a while, but the descent was a hell of a lot of fun. Pretty gentle loose rock, but pretty easy to handle at speed. Fun. Coming back into the town the way that route did was a lot of fun. It really felt like you were kind of entering a village, not downtown gerona like we've done in some other, the the entrances back into town. Anyway, another great day out there for day four. Super fun, super varied. The team has done a really good job of kind of making each day feel different and like many areas around the world, kind of directionally where you head outta town, the, the dirt and the gravel. Has just a different feel to it. So it's been fun to explore. We've got one more day on the official tour, and then I've got an extra day here. So we're gonna do a sixth day of riding where I think we'll head back out to the Mediterranean Ocean. Cuz how, how cool is that? Day 5 [00:12:17] Craig Dalton: All right. Day five of the Jarana. The gravel tour with truck travel, bit of a shorter day, as most of the clients were leaving today, it's the end of the official tour. So our guides took us on a really fun kind of single tracky tour through a different part of the surrounding area that we hadn't visited before. Lots of fun. Just kind of a great community day where we got to interact with the other riders a bit, and the writing wasn't too challenging nor too long as the ideal schedule had you back by noon and getting checked out of the hotel. Fortunately, we don't have to leave today. So we decided at least a few of us who were staying on a couple extra days to go out and climb the LA angels. Road climb again. We had such a good time. The day before on that climb, we thought it'd be fun to go back up. And we had some energy in our legs and a little bit of time in the afternoon to go tackle that. So we said goodbye to the other members of our tour group and our guides and headed off on a road loop. It was great. We talked about the climb a bit the other day. Just a fun group. Growed climb we saw a bunch of pros climbing up at which was always fun got to the top crews back down and put another day behind us in the books Day 6 and 7 [00:13:31] Craig Dalton: All right. Well, the official tour from track is over at day five. We had a couple extra days on our hands over in Gerona and you better believe we wanted to go out there and ride Mickey. One of our guides that you'll hear from later in this broadcast was nice enough to share. Another route. Out to the coast for us. So we really enjoyed that ride out to the coast, just super satisfying to kind of hit the Mediterranean. I shouldn't come back. Over to Gerona, but he had us go over some great trails on the way out and then a really, really fun road climb. Just gradual great fun descent down into the Mediterranean. You got to the top and you could see the ocean just super satisfying. We sat around in a cafe for gosh. Probably an hour and a half, just drinking some teas and coffees and having some snacks. We were having a great time, but we realized we needed to head back to Gerona. And Mickey's rude had us go through some similar type of terrain that we were on in our coastal roots, a few days back, those nice long flat undulating gravel trails that seemed to be pervasive in this area. So we're super appreciative of Mickey. Sharing one of his favorite routes that he loves to do with his friends, with us. So we could get another big day. You know, on the bike. I'll move on to day seven. As I'm recording this after the fact day seven, we didn't have a bunch of time left. So we decided we were going to basically revisit the route from day one, some of that nice single track and double track along by the river, it was actually fun without the group with just two of us remaining on the bikes, the kind of rip the single track a little bit harder. We were comfortable with the bikes. We'd been on them for seven days at that point. So really fun to just kind of rip the single track and nail it a little bit harder. Knowing that we could go as hard as we wanted because we had an overnight in Barcelona and then we were going to be on a plane saying a sad goodbye to Gerona. Overall. It was a fantastic trip. Jarana is a very special community. There's a reason why so many cyclists flock there it's clear whether you're a gravel cyclist road cyclist, or even mountain biker that there's ample terrain every direction outside of Jarana. And then the town itself is just really special, special. Between the old world, the old town roads and the city. City walls, the church walls. It was just a really great experience. Our guides from track were phenomenal and I wanted to introduce you to them. So I've recorded some tracks. That'll play immediately after this commentary. So you can get to know Mickey and Rafa, who were our guides throughout the week for track travel. I also was able to capture a little bit of audio from a few different sources. We talked a little bit about Roca Corp, but cycling. Both the 17th century Villa that's being converted into a cycling Airbnb, as well as there's Roca, Corbus cycling clothing, which was founded by a gentleman by the name of a test who's happening to be opening his store this month in Jarana. So it was able to get him on the mic. I had Andrew from the Airbnb. Cycling house. And then also Oscar from Castelli Castelli just opened up a flagship community store in Gerona that week we were there as well. We witnessed a number of group rides going out from the facility. So it was great to hear what Castelli's perspective was for opening that facility. And I was surprised to learn it had. Had little to do with selling. Jerseys and clothing and bib shorts, as you would imagine, and everything to do with promoting the cycling community and creating yet another hub. In Jarana for cyclists. Which brings us back to why you should all go to Jarana. As i just mentioned it's a great place to go and i highly recommend it and i hope you enjoyed this overview of my experience there. With that said let's jump right into those conversations Rapha - Trek Travel Guide [00:17:33] Craig Dalton: Okay, can I get your name and what you do with Trek? [00:17:36] Rapha: My name is Rafael and I'm a second [00:17:38] Craig Dalton: guide for Trek Travel. And [00:17:40] Rapha: where are you from? Well that's a good question cuz originally from the Philippines grew up for most of my life, 20 years in London and now anywhere in Europe. So I'm a resident of France, but I gotta find a place to live , so. [00:17:54] Craig Dalton: And how long have you been guiding for truck [00:17:56] Rapha: travel? This will be my fifth year now, guiding for truck. [00:17:59] Craig Dalton: And what does that look like? Are you always based here in Jer or are you all over the place? We, we [00:18:03] Rapha: sort of congregate here in the beginning of the year and then come back at the end of the year, but in between, we're all over [00:18:09] Craig Dalton: Europe. And are you leading, I know Trek Travel has got many, many road tours. Probably a lesser degree of gravel tours. Are you leading trips on the road and gravel [00:18:21] Rapha: for now? Yeah, and we're, we're starting off gravel next year and so it's a mainly road for the beginning. Next year we're gonna bring in unpaved which is gonna be a whole gravel series. So we have a whole unit of bikes just traveling throughout Europe, and it's gonna be exciting for next year. Yeah, [00:18:37] Craig Dalton: it's exciting. I heard, I heard from the, the extended team that you're gonna really build out the gravel experiences for next year, which is great. I think if my experience in Jerome with the gravel tour is any indication there's gonna be a lot of magical trips across Europe, helping riders discover gravel all over the. [00:18:56] Rapha: Yeah, absolutely. I mean, I do a lot of the road tours and I'll see just a patch of undiscovered area and I'm thinking, Hey, where does that go? Or I'll be traveling along the hills and in between you're gonna see these gravel patches of fires and you just want to go and explore. And essentially that's what the guides that went into design these trips or, or want to do, they want to do that. They want to find out those roads. Where does it lead to? Can I connect these dots and see the town and where am I gonna. [00:19:25] Craig Dalton: Yeah, I think it's one of the things I've talked about on the podcast a lot, just the power of local knowledge as we're following the GPX files or following you guys' guides through Jer here. You know, there's a lot of nuance, a lot of little trails that you can pop onto that would be easy to miss if you just sort of saw a heat map of the area. You might just choose the carriage way instead of the the nice trails. So it's really cool and important. I. To have guides that are local to kind of pick apart the best of the best for us to ride on. [00:19:57] Rapha: Yeah, I mean this is what we do. We, this is what we do for fun. So on our time off whilst we do a lot of road riding for work on our time off, we want to go out there and ride gravel. And so this is why we get to know the places. We live around here and in the places that we research gravel all we're doing is just riding and riding and riding and then through. Time, just knowledge. You build up tracks in your head and you wanna put that onto design and then maybe create a trip around it. Find a hotel, find a restaurant, the best restaurants, best hotels to stay and yeah, it's awesome. [00:20:30] Craig Dalton: Yeah, I feel that way. Whenever anybody comes to Marin County, I just wanna show them the best of the best and not the most obvious trails, but the, the ones only the locals know. Yeah. [00:20:41] Rapha: You, you wanna share it? I mean, it's, its more fun riding a gravel. It's more fun with people, friends and random people that you meet up on [00:20:48] Craig Dalton: trails as well. Yeah. When we were, when we first arrived during the week and you were giving an overview, you were talking about kind of the progression of roots that we'd be doing during the week. I thought it was very interesting, like the thoughtfulness in, in how you guys conceived of the roots and the, the relative challenges, whether they be distance or technic. Can you talk about, you know, if someone's come coming into one of the spring trips for the Trek Travel Corona gravel tour, what would how would you describe it? [00:21:16] Rapha: Well, so, well, there was no brief in the beginning, so actually when we rode this, For the research we rode 500 kilometers in five days and it looked like a picture of a lung with all the trees of just dead ends. But once we put it all together, we decided to, okay. Day one is a bit of an introduction. Let's get you used to the surfaces, the mixed surfaces, but we're gonna keep it flat. And on the second day we're gonna add on a little bit of distance just to make sure you have endurance for grab, because it's a lot of work. You know, you're doing a lot of cadence. Mind work as well, trying to figure out what's coming up. And then day three we add technicality. Now we're having multi services, soft sand, big rocks, technical climbs, and technical descents, which, you know, your wheels dig in, you gotta react to it. And then we put all of that together for the fourth day where you. Pick up all the skills you've had and we put it all in a fourth day for you to enjoy. Yeah. Right [00:22:11] Craig Dalton: on. And can you talk about the bikes that people are offered for this [00:22:15] Rapha: trip? Okay. For this trip, we are currently running Damani 2019 s SL seven. So it has gravel wheels on it for 35 millimeter. And it's just fun. That's what it is. So it's, it's not an all out gravel. It tests your limits on this ride and you get electronic shifting. So when you really need that gear on those technical climbs, you're gonna get it. Of course you're gonna prepare for it, but you're gonna get, get the gears. Yeah. When [00:22:39] Craig Dalton: I first saw that, that was the bike spec, I mean, it almost immediately had me thinking of more the trails that we took out to the coast when the carriageway, the, the, you know, the reclaimed rail line. Right. But at the end of the day, like now, four days into this, You're pushing the limits of these bikes and it's been a hell of a lot of fun. I mean, it, I really do think it's one of, it is kind of a perfect bike for this situation because it did everything you needed to do if you were ever on the road, it felt snappy and lively and it could withstand some of the abuse we were putting it through today. [00:23:11] Rapha: Absolutely. Yeah. I mean, these, these can do rock gardens and slick rock on, on good terrain. Good. These bikes are perfect around your owner. Of course, you know, you can always go wider. You can get flat bars and you go, world is your oyster. When it comes to gravel. I mean, you ask anybody what is gravel to you and they'll give you a million answers depending on who you're talking to. So every, everyone's got their preferences, and next year, you know, who knows? We have Wider checkpoints next year and it's it's gonna cater up to 50 mil tires and it's gonna be amazing. So we have sneak preview, we have a few in the warehouse at the moment in, and we can't wait for next [00:23:48] Craig Dalton: year at a checkpoint. Yeah, I think it, I mean, the checkpoint's obviously like gonna be a little bit more versatile and you can imagine the opportunity if you have a rider on day one that's seeming a little nervous. Maybe you spec it with a 40 to begin with and maybe you swap out the wheels and maybe you put him or her on 50 millimeters just to give them additional comfort. And who knows, maybe it's even for day four, we put you on 50 millimeters cuz we know it's gonna be kind of more challenging, technically speaking. [00:24:17] Rapha: Yeah, I mean, absolutely. We're gonna, as guides, you know, we're gonna test write these. We have a few in now and we're gonna have fun and check it out. So to checkpoint with all this capabil. It's gonna be more forgiving and hopefully you'll get more people coming in and not be so scared about gravel and check it out and try, try something different from [00:24:37] Craig Dalton: road riding. Yeah, for sure. As someone who didn't grow up in gerona, what have been some of your favorite things that you've discovered in town? [00:24:43] Rapha: Oh, you know what? Last night was probably one of the best nights ever because it was random. Mickey invited me down to the cast Telluride, and we did a Night Gravel, which is absolutely epic. Like, it's add just a different layer of difficulty, not seeing too far around and the group dynamic and you know, getting to know people and. Absolute blast. [00:25:04] Craig Dalton: Yeah, we were more than a little jealous that we didn't have lights with us and our legs were probably cooked enough that we shouldn't go for another eye, but we probably would've been excited to do so. Craig, maybe next time we're gonna invite you around. Exactly. Outside of Jer, since you've done Trek travel trips in a bunch of different places, what would be like one other trip that you'd recommend? Gravel or road? Either way. Oh, that's, [00:25:26] Rapha: it's like choosing between your children really. Like I adore all the trips and, but for me, this. The classic climb of the Alps. It's so stunning. It's beautiful and it's challenging. That's one of my favorite trips. And what, [00:25:39] Craig Dalton: what classic climbs, if you can recall, some of 'em are on that [00:25:43] Rapha: trip. Yeah. Yeah. So I mean, we start in a place LA Luce and the first ride you're doing quarter cord Qure. Okay. And, sorry, my mistake. Yeah. Qure. And it's a, it's a first. Already you're getting like 1500 meters of elevation in a 55 kilometer ride. So it's just day one and you're already getting straight up, okay, we're here to climb and we're gonna go all out the whole week. Nice. Of course, we, we do the epic outdoors at the end trip, sort of the icing of the cake and so that's the last climb of the, [00:26:20] Craig Dalton: of the trip. Yeah. It's certainly nice for anybody who's been watching the tour to come over and knock off any one of those climbs that are bucket list. [00:26:27] Rapha: Yeah, it is, it is a backless trip. I was fortunate, fortunate enough to climb outdoors on the TDF day in 2022, and the atmosphere there is unbelievable. Just the, the crowd cheering you on it, it just gives you an extra beat and you are just hammering up the hill just because of the people cheering you on. It's absolutely epic. And then of course you get more quieter climbs. So Wears is a great climb, but like Holyland. It's not celebrated enough for just Serenity, and it's, it's still challenging. It's 21 kilometers and but it's a good, it's a good time. Yeah. It's underrated my opinion. Amazing. My favorite call. [00:27:05] Craig Dalton: Awesome. I love your passion for it, . Thank you. Cool. And I, again, I wanted to thank you for all your help this week. It's been great getting to know you and riding with you. If it's, if it's unclear in anything we've said before, Each day we've had one of these guys riding with us and so one person's in the van and we've got one person on a bike with us. So we've had good camaraderie and lots of miles to get to know one another. So thanks again for everything [00:27:28] Rapha: this week. Thank you to, to you guys. Cause without you we wouldn't be here. And it's an absolute pleasure to be guiding you around here and it's so fun just doing own gravel. Cheers. Thank you. Miqui [00:27:38] Craig Dalton: All right, sir, can I get your name and what you do for truck travel? [00:27:42] Miqui: Yeah, so my name is Mickey Mic Reta, and I'm one of the guides of the truck travel ju gravel. [00:27:50] Craig Dalton: And not only are you one of the guides, you're a local here [00:27:52] Miqui: in Gerran. Yeah, I'm local. I'm born and raised in Gerran and I'm very happy to have you guys here in Gerona. Let's, let's [00:28:01] Craig Dalton: actually start with that. You've been in Gerona your whole life as you just. What's it been like growing up here? How has the town changed and as cycling has become more of a hub, how has it been infused into Gerona culture? [00:28:14] Miqui: So I would say cycling has always been a part of Ger. I remember as a kid going to a bunch of mountain bike races with my brother, probably. I did my mountain bike race, my first one when I was like six years old. And then, After that, it's just, it's been growing like crazy and I remember probably about eight years ago as one, it just went insane. Like all the pros started moving here and somehow it created a community that is just like a magnet for all the cyclists anywhere in the world up until the point that now I would say Juran is the cycling capital of the. [00:28:55] Craig Dalton: What is it about the roads and trails around here that you think attracted them people to gerona? Obviously, you've given us a great sample these five days of what the gravel has been like, and it's been spectacular. We've touched on some of these roads. I'd just like to hear in your words, why do you think everybody's coming here? [00:29:14] Miqui: So I would say Jona has everything you are looking for in. Or anything related to cycling? The weather is good all year round. It's true we have a rainy season, which lasts for a couple weeks or a month. We have a very few weeks in summer, which is very hot in very few weeks in winter, which is very cold. But the rest of the year is incredible. It has an. Endless options of road riding. If you wanna ride to the peer, you can, it's a long ride, but you can actually do it if you wanna ride from ju to the coast and do a nice short loop, short-ish you can do it if, yeah, I would say in ju you could be riding for almost a month and you would never repeat a single ride. [00:29:58] Craig Dalton: Yeah, I believe it. I mean, just from sampling it for this week. Yeah, for sure. And I mean, I think it's great that you've. Flat options. You've got hilly options. I think today we were up on kind of the local climb you would probably do after [00:30:12] Miqui: work. Yeah. You guys were up on Los Angeleses, which. I feel like it's just incredible to have a climb like that starting at three kilometers from the center of Una and yeah, it's, it's a long climb. It's about 10 kilometers and on top you get views of the purines. You get views of the ocean, well, the sea. Yeah. I feel like we are very lucky [00:30:33] Craig Dalton: in here. Yeah. Yeah. I feel like it's like probably one of those climbs that every local athlete knows their exact time to the top. Yeah. [00:30:41] Miqui: I would say that. People's fitness, you always ask, what's their time of Los Angeles ? [00:30:47] Craig Dalton: Yeah. That'll tell you if you're a compatible rider with them. So let's talk about the, the Trek Jer Gravel tour. I think you had a hand in a lot of the mapping, being a local and figuring out all the roots. How did you go about kind of, I always say whether it's an event organizer or a tour, it's almost like a love letter to your community and your trails, right? You're. You've got guests coming in from out of the country or out of the area and you wanna show them the best of the best. How did you go about thinking about the, the trails and roads we were [00:31:17] Miqui: on? The thing about this trip is that I had, I had to think that I couldn't make it super intense cuz sometimes we are taking guests at not super experienced on, on gravel riding or they just come from the. So I couldn't make a trip very technical, but as you guys saw, we have a few avid options after the look we do every day, which are a little more technical. But yeah, I feel like I, I was really happy when they actually said, Hey Mickey, do you want to give us a hand with this trip? Because, It's Una, I'm, I'm, that's where I started riding and I love grow riding, so actually my favorite ride of the trip is the one where we go to the coast. So we start in Una. It's super flat. We actually did on an incredible day. It was super sunny and we stop at the at the sea and yeah, we have lunch by the sea. Then after you guys went for a little swim and then we brought back to Una, we tried to stop at the brewer, which was unfortunately close that day. But yeah, I just think it's, I was very happy when Trek Travel said, Hey, do you wanna give us a [00:32:23] Craig Dalton: hand on this? Yeah. It's interesting. I think it's, it's sort of, you know, I imagine Trek travel draws a lot of road athletes Yeah. Onto their trips. So I think it is very approachable, but definitely had moments where you needed some skill. Not, you know, I think for more experienced gravel riders, riders, there was, there was no fear. It was just fun and exhilaration. But for a couple of the newer rider, When they were going down the looser descents, they were probably a little bit scared but exhilarated when they got to the bottom. Yeah. [00:32:54] Miqui: I don't think it's, it's nothing crazy. We haven't put anything on this trip, which would be like dangerous or scary for like total beginners. We've had intellectual, we, we classify rider in four levels, four being the, the most expert. And we've had people on this trip, they're like level twos and they've. They've loved the descents, they love the writing. Yeah. I think it's, it's got a great balance of hardcore and not hardcore, so. Yeah. [00:33:23] Craig Dalton: Yeah, it's super interesting. I mean, we, we sort of weave through the farmlands and into little villages, and it's been a real pleasure to kind of pop out of some woods and go through some, you know, 17th century sanctuary buildings and then back out onto some trails. It's, it's super fun. So, [00:33:39] Miqui: and that's the thing about Juran, right? So everyone, Toronto is for road cycling, but as a local, I'm a hundred percent sure that there is actually a lot more gravel riding than there is road riding in Toronto. Yeah, I [00:33:56] Craig Dalton: believe you. I mean, I think within four kilometers of town every day we've been on the dirt. Yeah. [00:34:01] Miqui: The extension of like farm roads and Yeah, just unpaved roads. I mean, I'm not talking about single track, I'm just talking. Real, what I like to call the real gravel, which is smooth and fast. [00:34:15] Craig Dalton: Yeah. You were telling me about that railroad line that used to go from the Yeah. The sea to the purities, and now it's all a gravel road. Yeah, [00:34:23] Miqui: so I would say it's about 50 years ago when they removed the, the train line, the, well, the railway, which there was a train that went from sun follow g. Which is one of the towns on the coast. And then it run all the way up to Ola and now yeah, they just remove the whole railway and they lay gravel on it and it's just an incredible, it's, it's actually a bike path, so on the weekend it's gonna be full of kids on bikes and yeah, the extension to the Villa Verde, which that it's included on the Villa Verde, is just incredible. How [00:35:02] Craig Dalton: many kilometers do you think that that trail. It's over a hundred kilometers. That's amazing. I mean, to be able to cruise, I mean, and relatively flat presumably, until it gets to the purity side. Yeah. It's [00:35:14] Miqui: totally flat. But since a train used to Yeah. Be on it, so they made sure it was super flat [00:35:20] Craig Dalton: for it. Yeah. Miles and miles and miles. Going back to the community in Ger, what are some of your favorite kind of, if a cyclist is coming to town, what are some of the go-to businesses they should [00:35:30] Miqui: visit? So if a cyclist comes in, ger, I would say most people, they would come here for about at least a week. So you're gonna have time to visit all of them, which they are all a hundred percent worth visiting. But there is a couple of places. You should a hundred percent go see if you're here for a short period of time. One of them being a coffee shop called La Fabrica, which it's only open in the mornings and lunch, so it's, it's the perfect place to brunch. Yeah. [00:36:05] Craig Dalton: Quick aside, I literally ran into someone I know, know from the United States today, and they told us to go have brunch at [00:36:13] Miqui: Left Africa Till Africa is owned by Christian Mayer and Amber Mayer. He was, well, he's a, he's a former, Yeah, they were the pioneers in Una, so they were the first ones to open a coffee shop, only focused for cyclist, of course, for everyone. And now it has become like a super great, like it's, it's a tourist attraction right now, but that's what kind of triggered the whole cycling movement in Joran. Okay. [00:36:41] Craig Dalton: So La Africa, and what's the [00:36:42] Miqui: second one? La Africa. They also have another coffee shop, which is only for. Which LA Fabric is more like brunch and food. The other coffee shop is called Espresso Mafia, which is one meal walking from La Fabrica, and that's basically where Christian roast the coffee and then you can drink it at Espresso Mafia. And then another place you should go visit in general, well, mid January. Trek and track travel. It's opening the first track store in the world, which is gonna have truck travel inside of it. And with a rental fleet, we are going to be the biggest, as in space, we're gonna have the biggest bike shop in ju, which it's pretty exciting. [00:37:29] Craig Dalton: Yeah, that's really exciting. And then finally, what's one sort of cultural place within Jerron that a tourist should visit? [00:37:36] Miqui: The whole old town itself. If you go to Juna, I highly recommend getting a walking tour of the Old Town because you're really gonna see what our culture is here and how it was in the past. And everything around the old town is just, it's just incredible. [00:37:55] Craig Dalton: Yeah. That's fun. You recommended we go up onto the wall for sunset. Yeah. And we've, we missed it the first night. The second night we, we made it up. We may have had to like randomly climb over a fence to make it there in time because we couldn't find the way up. But we got there and it was spectacular with view. Is that the purities that you're looking at out there? Yeah. You [00:38:14] Miqui: get to see Purees, you get to see a bunch of things and yeah, there is a restaurant called Aro. Which is in one of the steps. Well, there's like, Juna has 200 million cathedrals, but in one of them. On the stairs there is a restaurant called , which they actually film Game of Thrones there. And the terrace of the restaurant, it's actually on a little like flat section it has on those stairs. And I think it's a really cool location. [00:38:45] Craig Dalton: That's super. Cool. Well, thank you so much for coming on. Thank you so much for all the hospitality this week. It's been great to getting to know you and the local terrain [00:38:55] Miqui: here. Yeah. Thank you guys for coming. Girona Cycling Friends [00:38:57] Andrew - RocaCorba: All right. Can I let me get your name and let me know where we're at. What's this beautiful place? So my name is Edward Green. I'm the guest, the general manager slash I don't know what, at Rocka Culpa cycling. So we are a cycling tourism business just outside of Jer Corona in a town called Bans. We are based on a 17th century Catalan estate, or Maia as it is in Catalan. And we are basically trying to be a boutique hotel with some villas attached, which is exclusively for cyclists, road, gravel, mountain. Whatever you enjoy on two wheels is, is what we wanna do. And how far away from Ger are we? So we are currently 18 kilometers from Gerona, or 10 or 11 miles depending. Country. And about a 30 to 45 minute ride depending on, on how you get to us. Can you describe where we are in, in the villa right now? So we're downstairs basically in what used to be the old like area for the animals. So we've got some troughs around us, but we've done huge renovations to basically create our cycling dungeon down here. So we've got beautiful old vaulted Catalan ceiling. Rustic concrete floors, beautiful stone work, and then cycling history all around us with some beautiful frames. Cycling jerseys. Good coffee from the rocket espresso machine. Everything you can need for a good cycling stay. And what time of year is best to come here? Pretty much all, all year. To be honest. I don't think there's necessarily a bad month anymore, like December and Januarys tends to be quite quiet, but we see strong gravel riding in October, November, and the rest of the year is a lot of road riding. Summer is quite warm, so unless you like waking up early, probably avoid summer a little bit. But like June and September, October, probably buffer the. I'll note when you said strong gravel riding, you looked right at exactly a hundred percent. You are the epitome of what we see in November. . Tell us a little bit about the rest of the. So we are on 37 hectares and it's basically an old, what was an old family estate of the Campier family. The estate dates back to the 17th century, so 1673, and it was with the same family until 2018 when we took it over to create. What we want to create is basically cycling paradise all you need in one place. Out in the countryside, but close to Gerrin. And how many rooms do you have available here? So currently we're at eight rooms, but we'll be at 13 by April next year. So we're currently in the process literally starting today, which is very exciting of putting in five beautiful unsweet rooms in this main can poly manor house, partially they'll have views over down towards the lake onto some vineyards, but also into the courtyard and just generally over the rolling hills of, of Jerome. And tell us a little bit about the village. So just on our doorstep, we have the town of Olas which has a beautiful lake in it. It's where they had the rowing for the 92 Barcelona Olympic. It's a great place for like active people, for families, et cetera. But there's a lot of rowing. A lot of of the British university teams come out and train here. A lot of the national teams come and train as well, but generally just a fantastic place to be. Good quality of life and just down to earth and authentic. Amazing. And how do people find out about staying here? So if you have a look on Rocka coba cycling.cc, you'll find us and you can kind of do anything from there. Or if you are enjoy climbing, just Google Rocka Coba, you'll find the climb, and then you'll find us and the clothing. Amazing. Thank you. Perfect. That was great. [00:42:14] Oscar - Castilli: Okay. Can I get your name? Hi, my name is Oscar. And Oscar. Where are we standing today? Well, today we are in the, the first flag shipper store in the, in the war from Costelli here in Una. And what's the plan for the store? What are you trying to do with the community here? Well, una, you know, is the Jamaica for for European cyclists, I think all over the world. So, right now Castelli store, it's coming to. The big cycling club in Giona and well, why not in Spain? Nice. And we, we rolled by here last night and there was a big group ride going out on the gravel. Yeah. We have almost 40 people doing the full moon ride. It was amazing. So always we keep a surprise for all the riders. We stop in a food truck in the middle of the forest with fire. Some dinner and and beer. So it was super fun. That's amazing. And if someone's coming to Jerone to, to visit, do you have a calendar of events that they can look at? Yeah, they can, they can follow us on our Instagram and yeah, you can check. So, but every week we have a ride, so, and 2023, especially now it's coming a low season for the weather, but from February. So it's coming. A lot of events. Yeah. Amazing. Thanks Oscar, and congratulations on opening the new Castelli store. Yeah, big pleasure. Thanks for coming. [00:43:30] Mattias - Rococorba Clothing: All right. Right. Can you tell me your name and your shop? Mattias from Roco, COBA Clothing, Giron Mattias. Tell us a little bit about the brand. Yeah, it's a brand. It started in 2017 in the top of the mountain of Roco Coba. It's a very famous climb here in Giron, and I decided to, to put a food truck up there and to start at the same time closing brand called Roca corba. And yes, five years. Later. I just opened a new shop in GI selling all my stuff, selling online, gold wide, and really happy too. Have, what are some of the products that you sell? I sell Jersey t-shirts, shorts accessories, bags, Macs, beat ons. A lot of things sucks. Yeah. Amazing. These jerseys I see on the wall are beautiful, very colorful, very expressive. What inspires you and the, the designs? Yeah. Yeah. Right now I have like more or less 50, 60 different designs and I inspir it from everywhere. My slogan is cycling apparel inspired by the rob because we have so many different landscapes or different places and always I, I have inspired inspiration in the. In our region. Yeah. And when is the shop opening up? I hope next Thursday it will be open. Now it's ready and I have to do some things, little things, but next Thursday, big opening here in J in the center. Amazing. I'm excited. We got a preview. We are able to pick up some of your lovely clothing. You said you, you're available worldwide. Where can people find you on the. Yeah, we can find in ro.com. We have online shop with all the products and we we ship worldwide. Amazing. Thank you. Thank you. Pleasure, . [00:45:22] Craig Dalton: So that's going to do it for this first international version of the gravel ride podcast. I've been talking and dreaming about international gravel travel for some time. So I was super excited to have this opportunity with track travel. To explore Durona with their Gravel cycling tour. It was amazing trip. As I said before, I highly encourage you to check it out. As Raffa mentioned. They're unveiling a whole new series of gravel adventures for 2023. So they're really leaning into this gravel travel concept. What I loved about it was that unlike a gravel event where you might be focused on. Simply one ride when you visit somewhere amazing. Here. We were able to focus on riding every single day and there was no one ride that we needed to save ourselves for to get across the finish line. It was really about. Exploring as much as our legs could handle. I wasn't as fit as I had normally been when I've gone over to Europe in the, in the past, but it was still an amazing trip, still an amazing experience that I highly, highly recommend.
