Phoebe, Ijeoma Olou, & Phil Robinson Are Doing Their Best
It's crunch time, boos! The 2020 election is coming up. Many of us are scared and stressed and I called on two of the smartest people I know to talk about the issues of the day. Yep, that's right! We have another super sized episode of Black Frasier! So make some popcorn and Lipton iced tea and dig in. First up! Phil and Phoebe break down what exactly he does as a local politician, his career in the non-profit space and, of course, they give each other a hard time because that's what siblings do. Next, Phoebe chats with Ijeoma about local politics in Seattle, defunding the police, and as per usual, she gives us some tools on how to show up more intentionally in our communities. Plus, both Phil and Ijeoma answer some top notch listener questions.  Ijeoma Oluo Details: Twitter/Instagram: @IjeomaOluo Preorder Ijeoma's upcoming book MEDIOCRE: THE DANGEROUS LEGACY OF WHITE MEN : https://bit.ly/3dDteAg State Rep Phil Robinson's Details: Instagram/Twitter: @robinsonforoh Website: https://bit.ly/3ofjdhJ   -- Black Owned Business: Melanin Haircare WEBSITE : https://bit.ly/2IMG9ob INSTAGRAM: https://bit.ly/2IGiBRD TWITTIER: https://bit.ly/3dE9wo1 FACEBOOK: https://bit.ly/3jdh9D1 PINTEREST: https://bit.ly/3jgpgi2 -- SUBSCRIBE to get the latest Black Frasier Episodes: YouTube: https://bit.ly/33yXkBX Apple Podcasts: https://apple.co/3a787Vd Spotify: https://spoti.fi/33FG1PA Google Podcasts: https://bit.ly/33B9Gt9 Stitcher: https://bit.ly/2F241SS iHeart: https://ihr.fm/3kkY8Ah Pandora: https://pdora.co/31z7Ru6 Deezer: https://bit.ly/3gFwpYN Connect with Phoebe Online at: Visit the Phoebe Robinson WEBSITE: https://bit.ly/3kxHrlo Like Phoebe Robinson FACEBOOK: https://bit.ly/3fCjnKg Follow @PhoebeRobinson on TWITTER: https://bit.ly/33DParN Follow Phoebe Robinson on INSTAGRAM: https://bit.ly/3a5xVAT Follow Black Frasier on INSTAGRAM: https://bit.ly/31pKiUC -- About Black Frasier: BLACK FRASIER.

Bake With A Legend
Twenty crimps on your pasty
Pastry Week started off with a challenge to make Cornish Pasties, which put the pressure on poor Marc, because he lives in Cornwall, so therefore apparently his was expected to be much better than everyone else's! Paul even asked how many crimps they should have, but then wasn't quite sure himself! The technical challenge saw them tasked with making an eclair and for all we know Linda is still working up her 864th batch of choux pastry. Finally the showstopper saw the bakers make a caged tart before Paul and Prue handed over a 5th different star baker of the series whilst we were left with only seven bakers in the tent.

IDTT Wine 481: Wine Before and After the Genocide
Zorik Gharibian is the founder of the Zorah winery, in the Vayots Dzor region of southern Armenia. Zorik discusses the long history of wine production in Armenia, referencing evidence that wine was made in Armenia in the Copper Age (about 6,000 years ago). He talks about the grape remnants and clay storage jars that have been found from that time. And he discusses other wine related finds in Armenia, in both the pre-Christian era and later. Zorik then explains why a hundred year gap occured in the dry wine production of Armenia, and he talks about the situation for wine as he found it in Armenia in the late 1990s. Zorik explains his rationale for beginning his own winery in Armenia, and talks about the different winemaking regions of Armenia. He gives special emphasis to the area that he chose to base his production in, Vayots Dzor. He talks about the native grape family of that region, which is known as Areni, and his experiences with planting a new Areni vineyard. That is contrasted with his comments about a much older vineyard of Areni, which he also works with. Both vineyards are own-rooted, as phylloxera is not present in the region. Zorik also talks about the amphora clay containers that housed wine in Armenia in ancient times, and which he uses today as well. He gives his explanation for why he chose to mature his Areni wine in amphora - known as Karas in Armenia - as opposed to wooden barriques. And he relates details about his search to find amphora that were already existing in Armenia and which he could use, as well as to develop production of new amphora there today. He further gives a summary of the drinking habits of his surrounding region in Armenia, and an outlook on what it is like working in Armenia today. This episode also features commentary from: Katherine Moore, Union Square Wines Lee Campbell, Early Mountain Vineyards Conrad Reddick, Monterey Plaza Hotel and Spa
