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, Trump is blasted for floating a pardon for the Proud Boys.
Then, on the rest of the menu, a Black Alabama high school band director was tased and then arrested after Birmingham police ordered him to end the performance; an Oregon judge will decide whether the gun control law approved by voters last November violates the state’s constitution; and, the Mississippi River is running so low barge companies are limiting their loads, just as farmers want to move their crops downriver.
After the break, we move to the Chef’s Table where a newly discovered letter in the Vatican archives suggests Pope Pius XII may have known about the Holocaust well before previously thought; and, tens of thousands of South Korean teachers rallied for new laws to protect them from abusive parents.
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
