Joanna returns just in time to discuss the recent spate of celebrity RTD launches with Adam and Zach. Will these succeed in the same way that many celebrity spirits brands have?

It may seem counterintuitive, but successful founders are often stung by self-doubt, a topic the hosts discussed in this episode, along with Neil Patrick Harris' foray into the RTD cocktail business and an unexpected brand collaboration that's being described as both brilliant and revolting. We also feature the latest edition of Special Ops with Andrew Guard, in which the operations expert shared insights about scaling strategies, how to generate mainstream appeal through flavor and working with non-nutritive sweeteners. Show notes: 0:37: Bev.net, Sprouts Speaks, Target And Tost, Ray Reads IG Comments – John Craven returns to the studio and after a brief chat about his visit to Vermont, the hosts spoke about Outhaus' big news and the founder's bout of imposter syndrome, how sparkling beverage brand TÖST landed a big-time partner, and why Ray isn't a fan of a collaboration between a premium chocolate company and… Velveeta. 27:24: Special Ops with Andrew Guard, Vol. 3 – Andrew Guard of boutique beverage co-packer Right Coast Brands spoke about how founders operating early-stage and emerging businesses can more effectively prepare their brands for scale. He also discussed the link between great flavor and mainstream demand and considerations for working with natural and non-nutritive sweeteners, including monkfruit.

Powell said earlier today that "things had generally gotten better in the banking sector" and that "the banking system is strong and stable." Later that day, shares of PacWest Bank and Western Alliance fell by 30% and 60%, respectively, because they are the next two banks most likely to fail. But while banks are falling apart, the price of gold in USD hit an all-time high. Someone is being dishonest, as the stock price of banks never lies.

Argentina has announced that it will start paying for Chinese imports in yuan instead of dollars to ease the outflow of dollars, relieve dwindling dollar reserves and boost international reserves. This decision comes after Argentina expanded its currency swap with China by $5 billion in November last year, and in April, it aims to pay around $1 billion of Chinese imports in yuan.
Chinese President Xi Jinping spoke to Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky in a one-hour telephone conversation, the first known contact between the two leaders since Russia invaded Ukraine last year. China has refrained from joining the countries that have condemned the invasion, and the official account of the discussion made no mention of "Russia" or "war," instead emphasizing the need for a "political settlement of the Ukrainian crisis," and warning of the danger of nuclear escalation.

Setting the trajectory of your company can often begin with a single pitch. And with just six weeks until BevNET Live Summer 2023 in New York City, the hosts highlighted companies that have built successful and even iconic brands after participating in past editions of the event's New Beverage Showdown competition. They also discussed new and innovative brands discovered at a local meetup event, and why you might be surprised about John Craven's report from a recent visit to Scotland. This episode also features an interview with David Garci-Aguirre, who is the vice president of operations and master miller for Corto Olive, a super-premium brand of extra virgin oil that emphasizes freshness from harvest to plate. Admired by chefs for its commitment to high-quality standards, Corto is part of a new generation of olive oil companies that are attempting to recast the ingredient from an overlooked kitchen staple to one revered for its utility in creating delicious and healthy meals. Show notes: 0:39: VIPs In NYC. Is “Scotch Lag” A Real Thing? Bitter Is Better. And, Our Minds Are Blown. – The show kicks off with a chat about a special benefit for Taste Radio VIPs that will be attending BevNET Live in June, before discussing a recent episode of Community Call that should answer a few questions about a certain beverage competition and John's relative shock at lack of scotch flowing faucets in the U.K. They also sampled a variety of interesting food and beverages, including bitter libations, zero-sugar sausage snacks, an RTD tea sweetened with apple sugar and plant-based scallops. 22:04: Interview: David Garci-Aguirre, VP of Operations and Master Miller, Corto Olive – Garci-Aguirre spoke with Taste Radio editor Ray Latif about his career path from an (almost) professional soccer player to an olive oil expert, why he refers to olive oil as “the one ingredient that farm to table forgot” and why he describes the designation of “extra virgin” as “like getting a D in school.” He also explained how Corto has aligned its business units to consistently produce and package fresh olive oil and how the company communicates the value of its process and standards to its customers.

The Metebelis Two - a Doctor Who podcast
Ben presents to David a crash course in UK comics and all things related to The Star Beast, the 1980s comic serial that started Doctor Who Weekly #19, which was written by Pat Mills and John Wagner, and drawn by Dave Gibbons — all legends of UK comics. Toss in a dash of speculation of how RTD will bring Beep the Meep and the Wrarth Warriors to our television screens, and a sprinkling of speculation about other Marvel universe cross-overs with Doctor Who and there's your podcast! Opening music is "Cartoon Heroes", the 2000 (A.D.) song by Aqua and closing music is "That Beep", the 2008 song by Architecture in Helsinki. We recorded this episode on 16 April 2023.
The world's economic landscape is changing rapidly as the BRICS nations make their mark. In a bold move, the BRICS New Development Bank is ditching the US dollar and offering loans in local currencies, while 19 countries clamor to join the group. This could be the beginning of a seismic shift in the global financial system, with a potential new BRICS currency threatening to shake the dollar's dominance. Don't miss out on the latest developments in this economic revolution – watch now to find out more!
Cann co-founder and CEO Jake Bullock saw entrepreneurship as a way to break free from what he described as the path dependency of corporate life, but more importantly because he wanted “to build something big.” Cann is getting closer to meeting his ambition. Launched in 2019 by Bullock and co-founder Luke Anderson, Cann markets “microdosed social tonics” that are infused with 2mg of THC and 4mg of CBD and marketed as delivering “a perfect, uplifting buzz with a strength similar to a beer or glass of wine” with no hangover. The brand, which also sells an “Unspiked” line, is currently available for purchase in 33 states and throughout Canada. Amid a gradual loosening of cannabis laws in the U.S., Cann has positioned itself as an attractive and accessible option for canna-curious and sober-curious consumers. The brand's cultural relevance is also supported by an A-list roster of celebrity investors, including Gwyneth Paltrow, Kate Hudson, Rosario Dawson and Nina Dobrev, the latter of whom joined the company as a shareholder as part of its $27 million Series A round, which was announced in February 2022. While Cann is the most visible and distributed cannabis-infused drink brand in the U.S., it's still a long way from becoming a household name. What will it take for that to happen and how does Cann build upon its carefully planned foundation? Bullock answered those questions and discussed much more about the brand's ascendancy in this episode. Show notes: 0:43: Interview: Jake Bullock, Co-Founder & CEO, Cann – Bullock met with Taste Radio editor Ray Latif in New York City where they reminisced about Cann's victory in BevNET Live's New Beverage Showdown 17 and how the competition “set the trajectory for the company,” before the entrepreneur discussed a recently bestowed honor from Food & Wine magazine. Bullock also spoke about the importance of community based, on-the-ground education, the regulatory framework for selling cannabis-based beverages, the common issue that links Cann's consumers and why older adults are a key base for the brand. Later, he explained how Cann sits at the intersection of canna- and sober-curious, why he believes buzz gives the brand an edge over non-alcoholic RTD cocktails, how entrepreneurship provided him with “a very expensive education… after college” and what he learned about running a beverage company that he wished he'd known earlier. Bullock also explained why early-stage fundraising is about “finding the one,” the company's scrappy strategy for getting product into celebrities' hands and attracting investment from them, walking a fine line when talking about cannabis as a safer ingredient than alcohol, why he took issue with a 2022 New York Times article about “weed drinks,” how Cann's commitment to innovative advertising and video-based content has paid off and why he believes brands “need an enemy in all marketing.” Brands in this episode: Cann

Flight Through Entirety: A Doctor Who Podcast
This week, we're joined by Adam Richard, shrunk to a microscopic size, and sent on a mission consisting mostly of ruthless moral self-examination. Meanwhile, somewhere else completely, a romcom is taking place. It's Into the Dalek. Notes and links Some of us are old enough to remember the constant television repeats of Fantastic Voyage (1966), in which a small submarine and its crew are shrunk to microscopic size to remove a blood clot from the brain of a scientist who is defecting to the West. The glamorous catsuited assistant to the crew's chief scientist is played by a young Raquel Welch. Richard identifies as the chief influences on this episode Fantastic Voyage and Rob Shearman's Doctor Who episode Dalek. (Which we discuss on Episode 137, To Mainsplain Aliens.) Of course, Peter Capaldi was most well known for his role in Armando Ianucci's political comedy series The Thick of It, in which he played Malcolm Tucker, the Prime Minister's sweary and frankly terrifying political enforcer. Ianucci will go on to create Veep, in which Julia Louis-Dreyfus plays the hapless Vice President of the United States, and Avenue 5, starring Hugh Laurie as the captain of a luxury space cruiser which goes catastrophically off course. Moffat's first sitcom Joking Apart has been mentioned before on the podcast. Its main character also discovers how terrible he is as a person during the course of the first series. Class was a short-lived and ill-fated Doctor Who spinoff, written by Patrick Ness and set at Coal Hill Academy. Peter Capaldi appears as the Doctor in Episode 1, and the season itself is broadcast between Series 9 and Series 10 of Doctor Who. It is cancelled after the first eight-episode run. Trinity Wells, the American newsreader during the first RTD era, does have her very own Big Finish story: Driving Miss Wells by James Goss, which is part of the second Lives of Captain Jack box set, released in 2019.

Brazilian President Lula da Silva has called for BRICS countries to develop an alternative to the dollar in foreign trade, while visiting the New Development Bank in Shanghai. Lula suggested the bank could have its own currency to finance trade relations between Brazil, China and other BRICS nations, arguing that using local currencies would eliminate the need for a third currency and reduce transaction costs.
The financial world may be shifting towards valuing items in gold rather than fiat currency, with gold-backed exchanges potentially becoming the norm. This could remove the need for any one fiat currency to be the world's reserve currency and lead to a focus on sound money exchanges verified on the blockchain. Nate Fisher, my guest today, thinks that people will eventually need tangible evidence of metals in order to restore trust in the global monetary system because he sees a rapid decline in public confidence in governments and central banks. He explains why that is during our conversation in great detail using a powerpoint presentation.

The Federal Reserve has warned that the fallout from the U.S. banking crisis will cause a recession later this year, according to minutes from the March meeting of the Federal Open Market Committee. While Vice Chair for Supervision Michael Barr believes the banking sector "is sound and resilient," staff economists have projected a mild recession starting later this year, with a recovery over the subsequent two years. If they are forcasting a "mild recession" how bad will it really get is the question? Thanks for watching the Mike & Mario Show.

The recent surge in silver premiums has caused the premium of silver eagles to exceed 80% on some online dealers, indicating a sharp increase in demand for this precious metal. According to experts, this surge in demand is a clear indication that investors are turning towards Constitutional money. The increased demand for silver coupled with limited supply could potentially cause major problems in the silver market soon enough. The discussion in this episode of RTD Live Talk sheds light on the reasons behind the rise in silver premiums, including price gouging and limited supply, and highlights the potential implications for investors and consumers in the coming days.

The Arab world is uniting and using oil to change the geopolitical landscape. Arab states are no longer content to play second fiddle to Western powers, accelerating the Great Realignment. Their newfound unity and determination allow them to challenge the US and other G7 nations. Stakes are higher than ever with oil prices rising and the global economy in turmoil. Arab nations are using their oil reserves to gain power and change the world. Will the Western powers be able to withstand this assault and maintain their hold on the global order, or will the Great Realignment bring geopolitical chaos and uncertainty? Time will tell, but the Arab world has thrown down the gauntlet, and the world is watching this high-stakes geopolitical chess game.

Founded by professional athletes, OWYN is rooted in the concept that vegan and allergen-free ingredients are “only what you need” from protein and sports nutrition beverages. But what do challenger businesses need to disrupt legacy categories and outperform the brands in those spaces? According to OWYN CEO Mark Olivieri, great taste and great data. Launched in 2017, OWYN markets a core five-SKU line of RTD protein shakes made with 20 grams of plant-based protein, a “Pro Elite” line made with 35 grams of protein, and zero-sugar meal replacement beverages and protein powders. OWYN debuted as a DTC brand and has since adopted an omnichannel sales strategy emphasizing brick and mortar retail. The shift in focus has paid dividends. OWYN is carried by Kroger, Publix, Target, Walmart and Whole Foods and is outselling protein stalwarts, including Muscle Milk, according to SPINS data. The company is projecting $85 million in 2023 revenue and is on track to generate $350 million by 2025. In this episode, Olivieri, who has risen in OWYN's ranks from SVP of marketing to president and eventually its CEO, discussed the important role that data has played in the brand's growth and trajectory, how the company sources and implements a variety of information and insights into its business strategy, what he attributes to success at driving repeat purchase and how he identifies and evaluates the brand's primary competitors. Show notes: 0:46: Interview: Mark Olivieri, CEO, OWYN – Olivieri sat down with Taste Radio editor Ray Latif at Expo West 2023, where the OWYN CEO explained his belief that “the next billion dollar nutrition beverage brand has been found,” why much of the brand's growth in recent years has taken place under the radar and lessons and from working with large retailers and DSD distributors. He also discussed the company's data strategy and its investment in store level, category and consumer insights and how OWYN attempts to learn from and replicate successful sales, merchandising and marketing initiatives.

A recent summit in Moscow that was ignored by western media that brought together finance ministers from nations in the Shanghai Cooperation Organization security alliance, and discussed the possibility of bringing together various blocks, including the SCO, the CIS, the EAEU, and the BRIC+, into one framework, which could potentially create a mega bloc larger than the G7 and officially usher in the multipolar world. My special guest today is Christ Devonshire-Ellis, who is joining us from Moscow to offer his observations and analysis. During our conversation, he emphasized the importance of the current shift, which is more extensive than we realize.

The BRICS countries are working on creating a new form of currency and may present ideas on its development at the organization's upcoming summit in South Africa, State Duma Deputy Chairman Alexander Babakov said on Thursday. The Eurasian Economic Commission (EEC) headquarters in Moscow is crucial to the multipolar world. The EAEU—Russia, Belarus, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, and Armenia—discusses geoeconomics and its future here. In an interview, Minister of Integration and Macroeconomics Sergey Glazyev and his top economic advisor Dmitry Mityaev discussed a gold- or commodity-based currency that would bypass the US dollar.

In 2023, the BRICS alliance will try to move forward with its expansionist goals, possibly adding a dozen more member states. The G7, on the other hand, will be on the outside of this global reordering. How these two different world orders will affect each other in the coming months and years is still unknown. At the moment, there is a widespread trend toward dedollarization. This is because a number of countries have decided to give up the traditional model of dollar hegemony in favor of independent currency regimes or even trying out asset tokenization schemes backed by precious metals.
The global shift away from the petrodollar system and the United States' protection has led to other nations seeking alternative "sugar daddies" like China and Russia for support. This dedollarization will likely result in a transitional period where gold will serve as a standard, and a new monetary order including a financial and alternative component will be established.

Charles Schwab, which is a 50-year old mainstay in the brokerage industry and one of the largest US banks, is facing risks that have been hiding in plain sight. The current crisis is causing investors to focus on unrealized losses on the company's balance sheet, loaded with long-dated bonds that ballooned to more than $29 billion last year, and higher interest rates that encourage customers to move their cash out of certain accounts that underpin Schwab's business and bolster its bottom line.

The International Monetary Fund (IMF) issues a warning about global financial instability due to banking sector turmoil as rising interest rates put pressure on debts. Concerns that the European banking crisis has caused problems—first with Credit Suisse and now with Deutsche Bank facing liquidity risk—led U.S. Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen to preside over a private meeting of the Financial Stability Oversight Council.
The US banking crisis is worsening, with many regional and smaller institutions requiring financial assistance due to estimated unrealized losses and high borrowing at the Federal Reserve's discount window and from FHL Banks. The failure of Silicon Valley Bank and the actions taken by central banks to boost dollar liquidity, as well as the collaboration of major central banks, suggest that the crisis may be more widespread and pose a risk to the international banking system.

Florida Governor Ron DeSantis who may run for US president as a Republican, has proposed a law that would forbid the use of a national central bank digital currency (CBDC) as legal tender in Florida. According to DeSantis, this move would safeguard Floridian consumers and businesses from the dangers of government-sanctioned surveillance and innovation limitations. DeSantis has also urged other states to follow Florida's lead in implementing similar laws, further cementing his stance as a beacon of technological backwardness.

We learned earlier this month how the non-alcoholic beverage market is growing rapidly not just for hashtag#DryJanuary but overall and throughout the year. One wine store owner I talked to last month said that 38% of people of drinking age are choosing not to consume alcohol or are consuming LESS of it. That is why Lauren Chitwood and her co-founders created the non-alcoholic brand Spiritless. They were three young mothers with eight kids between them who were/are driven entrepreneurs and passionate social drinkers who enjoyed an evening cocktail to wind down from their day. Like most consumers buying their alcohol-free spirits and ready-to-drink (RTD) non-alcoholic canned cocktails, they were "feeling the strain of weekday drinks at work dinners, added calories, and sluggish mornings after a few glasses." Join Lauren and Tracy for #EatingAtAMeeting as they chat about how they started the business, their experience as female founders in the spirits industry, and how low and non-alcoholic beverages are an incredible tool for drinkers and non-drinkers alike.
