For Episode 43 I had yet another opportunity to reconnect with an old friend that I hadn't spoken to in a long time. Dan Butson played guitar for a handful of Rochester area bands from 1995-2002 before moving to New Orleans. We talk about the bands Dan played guitar in (Initial Doubt, Something Sacred, and a few other locals).  He also talks about his experiences living in New Orleans for most of the last two decades. Some of these include selling records to Trent Reznor and performing at Mardi Gras. We also talk about the music scene in New Orleans, hurricanes, wrestling and plenty of other relevant topics. Towards the end of our discussion, Dan talks briefly about someone named Hollise Murphy that passed away recently tragically due to Covid. There was a piece about him on No Echo recently.

Remember to rate and review GTP in iTunes: Click Here To Rate and Review Case Details: Acclaimed trial lawyer Karen Koehler, also known as the “Velvet Hammer,” discusses how she secured justice for dozens of victims of the Sept. 24, 2015 mass casualty crash involving a defective duck boat -- a World War II vessel turned amphibious vehicle -- and a tour bus full of international students on the Aurora Bridge in Seattle. She held the state of Washington responsible for the dangerous undivided, two-lane highway on which the wreck occurred as well as the Ride the Ducks Seattle and Ride the Ducks International companies for their disregard for safety in maintaining their duck boats.   Click Here to Read/Download the Complete Trial Documents   Guest Bio: In the mid-2000's an opponent told me that other defense attorneys were calling me “The Velvet Hammer™”.   When asked why, he said: because you smile so sweetly while you are hammering us into the ground.  I thought that was funny and adopted the name. Being a lawyer is part of my soul.  My work is part of who I am.  The stories of my clients will never leave me.  The child who could not bear to see his father take his last breath... The son who waved goodbye to his mother as he headed off to school, not realizing that would be the last time he would see her… The teenager on a school trip who woke up to see bones coming out through her skin…  The young man struck down and killed in front of the police who had been ordered not to enter the Mardi Gras riot zone…The siblings who were in the hospital for so long that they had to postpone the funeral for their parents by a year… The eighth grader sitting in the rear passenger seat when the bumper from another car went through the vehicle and into her lovely face… The Boeing worker whose leg was almost torn off from the impact, fragments of bone lying in the street… The maintenance lead burned to death by an acid solution… The widows who created shrines in their bedrooms for their beloved spouses…The sister who saw her baby sister die. So much preventable sorrow. My job is to make sure that wrongdoers are brought to justice and that the lives and losses of my clients are fully honored and respected.  I love my job.

By the 1920s Jackson Square became the center of a vibrant but short-lived bohemia.

Welcome to the Enchanted Ears Podcast, where we discuss anything and everything Disney. This week we have a battle royale between Disneyland and Disney World, but first, we have some news. This week in Disney News, it was Princess Week, and we FINALLY got our first peek into the Splash Mountain redo featuring Tiana! The artwork that will be inspiring the ride shows Tiana and an ultimate Mardi Gras celebration. It's certainly a party we want to be invited to! The NBA experience closed for good at Disney Springs. Disney will be developing a retirement community at Lake Nona. Joe and I already bought a piggy bank to start saving up. And the Spiderman: No Way Home trailer dropped. It seems to have a very different feel than the other Spiderman movies, and the trailer raises more questions than it answers. This week, we take the most popular rides featured in the Magic Kingdom over in Disney World and pit them against their counterparts in Disneyland. The rides are Space Mountain, Big Thunder Mountain, Haunted Mansion, Jungle Cruise, Small World, and Pirates of the Caribbean. We discuss some of the differences between the rides in both parks (there are so many subtle differences). Then we pick our favorites, which is a lot harder than you may think. Thank you so much for tuning in and listening to us blather on about something we both love. Have a magical week!

Garden Update Hoss Garden: There has been a lot of rain here in south Georgia, Greg has been cleaning out a lot of the garden to make room for the next crop. Greg still has the Jing Orange Okra growing, everything else has been extinguished except for the okra and cover crops. Greg is getting excited about starting the fall crops. Lots of transplants coming up but we still have all the rain coming in, Greg plans on using the silage tarp on the plots to get them ready once the rain stops. Raised Beds: Greg and Sheila have pulled up all of the Zinnias, planted Jambalaya Okra, and recently planted some Sweet Dumpling Squash (winter squash). Greg has started some herbs in the greenhouse to transplant into the raised beds when ready. Sheila has also planted 3 different varieties of sunflowers, Sun Spot, Sungold, and Mardi Gras - all dwarf varieties. Questions & Answers Part 1: After Gardening for so Many years and seeing so many different other gardens. If you started your garden all over again, what would you do differently? Greg says, "have smaller garden plots, and we have a goal now to grow our own food all year round. Smaller plots make things so much easier to manage, you can use crop rotation, cover crops, and even give some plots a rest. In smaller plots, you can plant everything in 2 weeks intervals so your plants are ready to harvest at different times, giving you fresh vegetables for a longer period." What are the easiest things to grow for beginning gardeners? Greg says, "Summer Squash is the easiest thing to grow by far, low maturity date not much room for error. During the fall for beginners, the best things to grow would be Radish, beets, and any leafy vegetables (Collards, turnips, and mustards). Something you could try would be Broccoli, it is not the easiest but highly rewarding." What is the correct height I should put my grow lights at? Greg states that the general rule would be 6-10 inches from the top of the plant. What are your favorite blackberry varieties that do have thorns? Greg is not a fan of blackberry varieties with thorns. Years ago, he did a trial with the thorn and thornless to see which one tasted better. There was not a significate difference in the taste. Greg would not recommend anyone growing the ones with thorns. His favorite is the thornless Apache Blackberry. How long should the Hortanova trellis netting last? Greg states that it really depends on how it is stored when you are not using it. He hasn't had one go bad before and has used it for many seasons. I have heard my whole life not to plant rows east to west only north to south. Do you gentlemen have a certain direction that you plant your crops? Greg has never heard of this theory. The main thing he says you would need to worry about is when you create the rows, is erosion. When it rains the way the water runs you want to plant your rows perpendicular to the flow. What would you recommend for a cover crop in raised beds? Greg says, "Summer Cover crops are very limited because they all get pretty good sized and are very hard to extinguish in a raised bed. Buckwheat would be the easiest summer cover crop. Winter cover crops will almost all be fine to be grown in a raised bed, Diakon Radish, mustards, clover almost cover crop." Could field peas be used as a cover crop and tilled into the soil? "Absolutely, Red ripper and iron clay pea. The red ripper pea would be better if you can chop it up in the end. If you have to use a lawnmower or similar to till them down the Iron Clay pea is better.", Greg says. Questions & Answers Part 2: I've heard/ seen a lot about cover crops, but I can't wrap my mind around how to eradicate them when it comes time to plant in the spring. I saw another video you did, where you mowed the cover crops down really short, but what happens after that? "About a month before your spring garden. You want to extinguish the crop which is one of the more difficult thi...

Trigger warning for a long discussion about sexual assault, because this is THAT CHAPTER where Tylin imposes on Mat to the utmost extreme. Today Seth is absent from the recording, and Aradia brings in Gus from Wheel Takes to discuss this infamous scene that generates some of the most hotly contested content in the entire Wheel of Time series. We are not discussing “if” Mat was assaulted, but rather examining how Robert Jordan created a nuanced analysis of sexual assault. After Mat is free to go, he meets up with Nalesean, Birgitte, Beslan and some of his friends, and they go walking through the Festival of Birds, which sounds a bit like Mardi Gras? They are attacked by Darkfriend beggars, then make it to their watching spot for spying on the Kin's base of operations. Mat can't take his mind off of events, and is horrified that Beslean not only knows but approves of Tylin's interest in him. To escape the situation, he randomly follows a Kinswoman, setting in motion the discovery of the Bowl of the Winds, at long last.

Garden Update Greg: Greg has started his seeds for fall in the greenhouse. He has a few different cover crops growing (Black Oil Sunflowers & Sorghum Sudangrass). Greg says that they still have their Jing Orange Okra coming in like crazy, this variety can get a little bit longer than the normal okra varieties but has great flavor and texture. Sheila: Sheila is getting ready to transplant more sunflowers in her raised beds. Sungold, Mardi Gras, and Sun Spot are the 3 different varieties Sheila is starting this go around but will also be planting more every two weeks to keep them blooming well into the fall. She recently tested a theory on soaking seeds. The "seed soaking" theory was to see if it made a difference with germination if you soaked seeds overnight. Jambalaya seeds were soaked in milk, another batch in water, and then none were soaked at all... the conclusion? It did not make a difference if you soak the seeds. If you plant okra seeds in cool soil, you will have problems. We did have the "no soaking" seeds come up in 3 days! Roselle is getting taller and Sheila has had to thin out the garden. Seeds/Product Updates Greg has been in contact with many of the Hoss seed breeders. They say that seed prices will increase over the next year or gardening season and that the breeders' reserve on seed is getting pretty thin. Hoss Tools will be later than normal getting our seeds for the 2022 Spring Season, we should be getting our seeds in around early December. Another interesting topic, Hoss' potting soil supplier has informed Greg that there will be a shortage of potting soil going into 2022. 3 Important Fermenting Tips Cleanliness/ types of equipment - crock vs. jarBrine/Temp/Strength (%of salt by weight in given volume of water)Monitor/Check Daily/Skim off white scum/any mold Recipe Mrs. Hoss' Dill Pickle Recipe (No-Fail Half Sour Dill Pickles) *Makes about 2 Quarts* Ingredients: 4 cups of water2 TBS pickling or fine sea salt1/2 cup distilled white vinegar8 cups whole pickling cucumbers1 dill head or 6 sprigs of fresh dill4 garlic cloves, peeled Step-By-Step: 1.

Sometimes it can be frightening to take a risk or to start something new. Sometimes, it can pay off. Today, Sarah and Preston Lowder join us to share their own experience in starting their own business and leaving careers behind. Sarah and Preston started Lowder Baking Company officially in 2019. Before their official start, they were selling King Cakes during Mardi Gras as a side business. Sarah was a realtor, and Preston was an ICU nurse when they decided to get serious. They started with simple but necessary steps: making a business plan, approaching investors, securing a location, and streamlining their focus. On their journey, some people thought they were crazy. People wondered what business a realtor and nurse had jumping lanes into baking fresh goods in Shreveport, LA? Rather than listen to those who doubted their endeavor, they focused on what they uniquely possessed from their previous careers to set them apart. Preston used his understanding of micro measurements to influence how they bake, by weighing out their ingredients to ensure quality and consistency. Sarah put her social media skills acquired in real estate to work. Even with the pandemic, they were not discouraged. They found ways to pivot and meet the needs of their customers and expand their offerings. Now, two years after starting their business, they have won multiple awards, including the best King Cake in Lousianna in 2020. If you have a dream that you are concerned about taking on, Sarah and Preston have some advice for you. Once you have a plan, commit to going for it. Accept in your mind that you are going all in. Have faith in yourself. You don't have to have it all figured out, just plan as much as you can.

Kathleen tells Paddles that she doesn't think that any of the Queens in her Court would put up with Lindsey's bullsh!t, so anticipates that he will remain single for a while. “GOOD BAD FOOD”: In her quest for new and delicious not-so-nutritious junk food AND in continuing her search for the best Ranch, Kathleen samples Frank's Red Hot Goldfish, which she can't wait to trick her nieces and nephew with the heat. She LOVES her next tasting sauce: Ortega Taco Ranch Taco Sauce, which she vows to take with her to eat Mexican food with her friends Mark and Nicole after the Pubcast is finished. She finishes off this week's tasting menu with Chewy Chips Ahoy with Reese's Peanut Butter Cups, in which she's overcome with the sweetness and vows to give to her mom. She wraps her tasting segment discussing her recent day drinking shenanigans with her friends Raelyn and JB, and Raelyn asking their bartender “Do You Have Any Ranch?” to go with her well-timed fries after a few beers. BRITNEY SPEARS CONSERVATORSHIP DEVELOPMENTS: Kathleen is intrigued with the Britney Spears conservatorship drama, and UPDATES her Termites that Britney recently went on a bizarre rant on social media, referring to herself as a "motherf***ing snake" (referring to her iconic MTV Music Awards performance with a Burmese python). The 39-year-old wore a snakeskin bodysuit in her recent Instagram post, which comes as she prepares to speak out against her father, Jamie Spears, in court amid her conservatorship legal battle. Back in April 2021, Britney asked a judge to permanently end her father's control over her $60M fortune and personal life.JEFF BESOS SPACE AUCTION: As a follow-up to Ep44, Kathleen reads an article updating the progress of Jeff Besos's initial space flight aboard his New Shepard rocket. The richest man in the world is auctioned off a seat on its upcoming first crewed spaceflight in June 2021 for $28 million.The winning bidder will fly to the edge of space with the Amazon founder and his brother Mark on July 20th. Blue Origin advised that New Shepard's first passenger flight will carry four people, including both Bezos brothers, the auction winner and a fourth person to be announced later.INVASION OF THE SUPER TERMITES: All of Kathleen's Termites know that she has a fondness for all things “Termite,” and she laughs as she reads an article out of Israel advising of a “Super Termite” invasion in June 2021. This species has been coined as of the most destructive pests in the world, will eat anything containing cellulose, such as wood, paper, or cardboard, and has also been known to devour copper and lead sheets, plaster, asphalt foam insulation boards, plastics, and even underground power lines.THE AUCTION OF AN INVISIBLE SCULPTURE: Kathleen finishes her beer and laughs at the absurdity of an article detailing the recent auction of an invisible sculpture. Italian artist Salvatore Garau just sold an invisible sculpture for $18,000 USD and the work, titled Io Sono or "I Am," doesn't exist except in the artist's imagination. According to the artist, the sculpture doesn't not exist per se, rather it exists in a vacuum, Newsweek reports. "The vacuum is nothing more than a space full of energy," Garau explained. "And even if we empty it and there is nothing left, according to the Heisenberg uncertainty principle, that 'nothing' has a weight. Therefore, it has an energy that is condensed and transformed into particles, that is, into us." Ummmm, ok. Kathleen moves on to tell the termites her own story of “selling something invisible “ to her grade school nuns when she and her dad crafted an oversized vodka display bottle and an egg to demonstrate the power of vacuum energy. Yes Termites, Mama Termite attempted to demonstrate advanced science to nuns. MYSTERIOUS CANADIAN BRAIN DISEASE: Kathleen reads an article about a mysterious disease impacting a small area in Eastern Canada where 48 people have been struck with a baffling mix of symptoms including insomnia, impaired motor function, and hallucinations such as visions of the dead. Conspiracy theories blamed the illness on everything from cellphone towers to vaccine complications. These are some plots of a mystery that has stumped the medical establishment, attracted the attention of top neurologists, and scared residents of New Brunswick, a province of 770,000. In the past 6 years, dozens have fallen ill from the disease, and 6 people have died.ST LOUIS'S VEILED PROPHET BALL: Kathleen reads an article about St. Louis's Veiled Prophet ball, as it has been in the news lately when actress Ellie Kemper was discovered to have been named the ball's “Queen of Love and Beauty” when she was 19 years of age. Inspired by the Mardi Gras krewes of New Orleans and a character in a then-popular poem, the Veiled Prophet organization was established in response to major labor strikes that shut down the city — and the threat of Black and white workers uniting. The entire process of choosing the “queen” every summer was originally suffused with elaborate ritual: A person would be chosen by a secret board of local elites to anonymously play the role of the Veiled Prophet. The Veiled Prophet would choose a Queen of Love and Beauty from among the elite ball attendees (of course, invitation list to be kept strictly confidential as well) with whom he would dance a “Royal Quadrille” before presenting her with an expensive keepsake such as a tiara or pearls. Often these gifts were so expensive that they became family heirlooms. The ball would be accompanied by a just-as-spectacular parade and fair. In October of 1878, civic elites in St. Louis organized the first parade, which attracted more than 50,000 spectators. Kathleen provides her own commentary around attending the parade with her friends, which she says one of the highlights was that you could bring your own cooler of beer.WHAT TO WATCH THIS WEEK: Kathleen recommends watching “Hacks” on HBO Max.
