Today’s West Coast Cookbook & Speakeasy Podcast for our especially special Daily Special, River City Hash Mondays is now available on the Spreaker Player!
Starting off in the Bistro Cafe, the Supreme Court’s ruling on the Security Exchange Commission case could ‘upend government as we know it.’
Then, on the rest of the menu, even though DeSantis’ lawyers admitted his personally-drawn gerrymander map violated the state constitution by diminishing Black votes, the Florida First District Court of Appeal ruled it’s all good, he had to; a Wisconsin man plead guilty to firebombing the office of a prominent anti-abortion group last year; and, a Barbie doll honoring Cherokee Nation leader Wilma Mankiller is met with mixed emotions.
After the break, we move to the Chef’s Table where Vice President Kamala Harris engaged in a speed round of diplomatic talks with Arab leaders while also negotiating at the COP28; and, a former American diplomat who served as US ambassador to Bolivia has been arrested in a long-running FBI counterintelligence investigation, accused of being a secret agent for Cuba.
All that and more, on West Coast Cookbook & Speakeasy with Chef de Cuisine Justice Putnam.
“A lovely dish repurposed for your gourmet delight.”
- Chef Justice Putnam
Question: Who is your audience? What are you here for?
Answer: Tribal Alliances, Heart-felt Convictions, Passionate Reason, Random Abandon, Sustainable Civility and a kiss; to comfort the sad and the mad Ones; the Ones roaming the International section of the American Supermarket at night; or roaming the neglected streets looking for an angry malaprop to sink their teeth into; the Ones who seek without seeking and learn as much as they teach; the Ones who embrace and kiss and embrace again; the Ones who sing the song of the city and the ballads of the forest; the Ones who chant the rhythm of the sea and hum the melody of the desert; the Ones who sing the prayer of Her name and Her name is the World. Yes, those are the Ones. -- JP
