Take the 405 to the 605 to the 5 to the 10 to the 405 wait, that can't be right. We're here to talk about the history and culture of California and we're not going to take it too seriously!Hosted by Kate Langsdorf and Andy Langsdorf.
Episode 4: The Great State of Jefferson03/12/2018 Duração: 55min
Some Californians don't want to be Californians anymore. They have their flag, capital city, and a whole bunch of county boards of supervisors votes that, to be honest, the rest of California has basically ignored. This week's episode also features our first guest star state: Oregon.
Episode 3: Direct Democracy24/10/2018 Duração: 01h28min
California will put just about any damn thing on the ballot if you can get enough people to sign your petition and $2000 to sink into getting it through the bureaucracy. We talk about all the great forms of direct democracy we have here in California, some of the big time propsitions that have had lasting impact over the years, and introduce ourselves to Dr. John Haynes, one of the wokest rich white guys of the turn of the 20th century. Finally, I am really mad at myself for not working a reference to the Simpsons episode where Lisa fakes her way onto the nightly news by claiming she is against proposition 305 (reduced bus fares for war widows). So, I included it in the links. …Moochin' war widows.
Episode 2: Blue Dolphins and Berry Farms17/10/2018 Duração: 01h06min
When you're a school child in California, 4th grade is the year you learn all about the history of this great state. For some of us, that meant reading Island of the Blue Dolphins and making models of missions out of flour, salt, and water. For others, it meant a trip to one of Orange County's top 3 theme parks for none of the possible fun and all of the mandatory education! Also, the important distinction between the Knott's Calico Mine Train, the Disneyland Mine Train Through Nature's Wonderland, and the Big Thunder Mountain Railroad that replaced the Mine Train Through Nature's Wonderland.
Episode 1: In 'n' Out Burger11/10/2018 Duração: 01h14min
What is a hamburger all about? In n Out was in the news recently when a bunch of people got all salty to learn that they had donated $30,000 to the state GOP. We found their surprise odd, give that the family that owns In n Out are evangelical Christians who print bible verses on their cups. We dive into the history of the chain, peruse the secret menu, and explain the logistical reasons behind the paucity of In n Outs east of Las Vegas. Those are good burgers, Walter.
