Bradford :

And I had one ready today, I was gonna do something here. It was like, Oh, yeah, baby.

Steve:

Are you practicing in the shower? Or in a week long process?

Bradford :

Well, I have not been practicing in the shower. And I actually just thought of how that would go. And if my husband heard me in the shower, like, Oh, yeah, baby, he would probably suspect I was doing something pretty bad.

Steve:

People are freaking out about this kind of

Unknown:

I love that

Bradford :

it's it's insane. I mean, where's the line? So you know I'm a male I'm clearly a male you're a female you're clearly a female and I get it there are people out there that don't identify as either and that's okay but that doesn't mean that Mr. Mr. potatohead go away because if Mr. or Mrs. Potato Head do go away guess what I'm so Mr. And you're still a missus they exist and therefore they can have Potato Heads that do as well.

Steve:

They're still there right? They're just making the box a potato head now right that's it

Raylene:

you know and Originally there was just a Mr. Potato Head

Steve:

true. And then some broad complained probably in the 40s and 50s probably gonna have frickin Mrs. Potato and see I'm just kidding I don't write I don't

Raylene:

well did you know that originally it didn't even come with the plastic potato it was just the parts and you were supposed to provide your own potato

Bradford :

you know what I always thought would be really hilarious. was like a dirty potato headset where like he had like a scrotum and like it needs a penis penis attachment

Raylene:

right then you could call him Mr. Potato Head

Steve:

otherwise is the kid would never use that truly I Mr. Potato Head you would be bringing that peanuts around and leaving the places

Bradford :

right because like mom I think I put it in the right place and it's like in Mrs. Potato Heads mouth and mom's like medication. Yes, that's the right place.

Steve:

I reacted that like oh come on Really? And then I like thought about it. I'm like, do I care now what Mr. potatohead has called them like nope, nope. And if so if one less person is offended by than whatever, I don't care true. I really don't

Raylene:

I really don't care who gets offended by check? That's that's how we're different like one less person gets offended then great. No, I'm just

Steve:

designed to be like a unisex potato and that was it then I totally understand people freaking out I suppose. Yeah, this is just a marketing campaign because now we're talking about

Raylene:

that's what I think of everything now. Every single time I hear things come out. And I'm like that's 100% they're just doing it for the market

Steve:

and they just gave on Jemima is the new name. It's like something milling company or something like that. Yeah, the hell happened there really

Raylene:

well. It was offensive. Well, they're showing her as a housekeeper

Steve:

I guess I'm more concerned with what the new name was. I was like what the hell it was it was so it was like so strange. I can't remember what it is like something company.

Raylene:

Yeah, somebody's leaving the mailing something like whatever their original actual company name was or whatever that is.

Bradford :

syrup. It's magical powder and that box because that is the best pancake mix. We're also doing doors companies who don't sponsor us so sorry, best quick but that that is like the pancake mix. That's the best hands down.

Raylene:

I don't use pancake mix, but what I can say is every single thing you make with best quick tastes like best quick, like you know that there is no

Steve:

question. They are very proud of the product and they're like, yo, if you're gonna use us, you're gonna taste us and everything exactly.

Raylene:

Your biscuits are gonna take like best quick and your pancakes are gonna taste like best quick and your waffles are gonna taste like best quick. Your pie crusts are gonna take

Unknown:

Yeah,

Raylene:

I can't even recall the last time I purchased either of those items, right?

Bradford :

The only time I purchased best quick was they came out with something new and I was like, Ooh, I'm gonna try this. It's like this little jug with the powder and you just add water, shake it and then you pour the pancakes out and I was like wow, groovy very convenient, but at the same time tastes like shit still. So

Steve:

those things never seem to truly work the way they're designed now.

Raylene:

I don't think you guys are shaking it hard enough. I think maybe you're just used to being a little more gentle.

Steve:

That rotation down trust Yes,

Raylene:

I know. But I think you might be meaning more gentle than it requires.

Steve:

I mean, not gonna speak for Bradford but I could I got the vibe off him. Oh, yeah, no, he's no gentle shaker at all.

Bradford :

Not whatsoever I guess like we're gonna shake these up here. We're gonna do it the right

Steve:

way. You are more than welcome to sponsor though and you will be the greatest thing that's ever been created.

Raylene:

Exactly. All of a sudden me like love this quick.

Steve:

I'm always shaking alone at home and Pisco right in the kitchen.

Bradford :

I can see the future episode now.

Raylene:

I did like the when they had the shakeout, the shake alone pancakes because it was easy for the kids or whatever, but I just don't like pancakes. I know. I know. It is. Some people are so upset about I just don't I like waffles. What's the difference? How they're cooked. waffles. The same mix waffles. waffles are crunchy that like they have a crunchy outside made on two different machines. Exactly.

Bradford :

And it depends. My waffle machine makes them very like

Steve:

I don't think you're making waffles, right? We've just covered this quick and the waffle maker. They're not coming out the way they're supposed to.

Raylene:

So we've got some fun topics Is there a specific thing one should say when someone knocks on a public bathroom door and and let's also talk about the the amount of width of those doors we can like actually accidentally make eye contact with somebody sitting for safety purposes. carpool lane driver found to be using a mannequin passenger and like that's not new. Like that's an old trick. And Taylor Swift slams Netflix show Ginny in Georgia for a sexist joke about her dating history.

Steve:

Someone is with someone with as much money as this girl has. She is always complaining about something and she will sue your ass too. So if you never hear from us again.

Raylene:

Well, let me let me just tell you right now. Congratulations, Taylor. You just made Jenny in Georgia, the most popular show on Netflix. Nobody ever fucking heard of before you started complaining about a

Steve:

time today that I'm recording their name on to whatever you call recording now, right? If she's freaking out about some like one little tiny Joe free

Raylene:

advertising.

Bradford :

Well, she wants to make sure there's no blank spaces.

Steve:

That can't be the only one you know,

Raylene:

I mean, I don't know if her Netflix will ever ever ever get back together. Right? I

Steve:

feel left out because I can't use any Taylor Swift songs to make a joke.

Bradford :

I mean, whenever we're talking about the best quick, she's got that shake it off.

Unknown:

She should just shake it off.

Raylene:

She should. Right? It's not that big a deal. And I think she literally used the word slut shaming and I'm like, I don't think that slut shaming anymore.

Steve:

Everybody is hookah line was you go through more guys. They

Raylene:

Taylor Swift.

Steve:

Like it's not even that creative of a joke.

Raylene:

They just say Yeah. And that's it. It was a it was a cheap, inexpensive joke. She

Steve:

said some line like oh, my throwback to 2010 where we attack strong women or whatever like that. half your fucking songs about breaking up with dudes right? To break up. You got to go find a new one, right? And you keep breaking up and breaking up and breaking. So

Bradford :

here's the very analytical people do they look at data, okay, we can look back at her life and be like, okay, breakup, breakup, breakup, breakup, breakup, breakup, breakup, breakup, breakup, breakup, and we added it all up. And that statement was true, just because she doesn't like to hear it. It's true, sister, you've had a lot of men.

Raylene:

Yeah. Well, I mean, so was Adele. I mean, Adele's ex sued her because she wrote breakup songs about him. He fucking lost, obviously. But I mean, that's what you write songs about what you know,

Steve:

Taylor Swift made more money over the past two years, two years in a row has now made more money than anybody else that does her job, then that's close. She made $200 million. The next closest person is Kanye West and the rock at like 80 and 90, like this girl is above everybody else. So if you want to cash in 200 million, maybe someone's going to do a little joke I got about along the way like

Raylene:

and she she literally just She should have just been like haha

Bradford :

right like let it go

Raylene:

like leave it you know great job but why does she need to make every single thing into a federal

Steve:

what it is is she doesn't have a deck so she a long time ago she helps her through some lawsuits out and she felt like what it was like to like slam your dick on the fucking table and ever since then she's just been hammering everybody she's she sued a lot of people a couple of them justly just just to be fair

Unknown:

by radio guy. Yeah,

Steve:

he totally does totally deserve every time you turn around. I feel like oh my god, she's fighting with this person. And that person. I think she just wants to remind people like, Don't you dare touch me? I'm fucking Taylor Swift. You know, it's just weird to me.

Raylene:

Also, what I find weird is when she got sued because someone said that she copied their logo for her fearless album. And I was like, Taylor Swift doesn't have to copy anything from anyone but she still

Unknown:

could have troglodyte.

Bradford :

She still cut and I don't think Taylor says that also.

Unknown:

She Yes, she didn't design it. Oh, of course not. She writes the songs. So

Steve:

I'm just surprised that you would it just shows that to me it shows a really weak thin skin. Yes,

Raylene:

that's that's exactly what I said. I rolled my eyes I was like, Are you fucking kidding me?

Steve:

I mean, if it was like, oh, Taylor Oh, you're a slot like Taylor Swift. I could get it right. But it's still fame like you're on a pedestal and you have all these extra benefits right from being way up there. You're also getting get shit thrown at you every once in a while because we can see you right? You're easy to hit but then you got to have a good arm to hit someone on the pedestal way up there.

Raylene:

And she's all about not punching down beat you up there. We punch it up. Yeah,

Steve:

right. Over songs right now we're going want number one again, all of our re recorded songs which I call a cash grab, I know the backstory right you're trying to stick it to the old you know scooter and all that and the licensing and all that

Unknown:

and you probably deserve it

Steve:

so just go roll in the money that you've got you're doing the same magic trick you did 10 years ago you're cashing on all the money now you're picking fights with some Jenny and Jenny What the hell is that? And of Georgia Ginny I

Raylene:

think I literally mentioned this on the last episode any time anybody tries to do a boycott or or something like this that's literally free advertising. I never heard of this show except I've heard of it three times today

Steve:

Marjorie green lady, the the Senator from Georgia that everyone's freaking out about her tweets. No mainstream only like a regular real politician person would know she is but now we attacked her which is deserving. I mean, she said some gross things, but like at the same time, we launched her to a level of fame. Right? She never would have touched if we just ignored it. So the

Raylene:

morning like AOC the

Steve:

more people attack people they just get bigger and stronger for some reason. Fucking universe.

Raylene:

That's how I felt about AOC as a regular just some swords

Steve:

though.

Raylene:

Right? But I mean, when she everybody they pushed her so I'm like normally a junior entry level senator, whatever she is, they would ignore her. But they were like, Oh, look at her. She used to be a bartender. Let's watch her we're gonna blow up every single thing she says baba baba baba and then she

Steve:

slices people. I mean, I I see some quotes for her. And I'm like, why are you people still poking her even if it's deserving? Why have you not like Joe Manchin that he Unfortunately for him? He is a politician that doesn't exist anymore. He's a centrist doesn't survive in politics anymore. You have to be on the left to the right. Right. Her and him went out at the other day. I don't remember the exact back and forth, but it's like Joe, Joe, you really gonna take on AOC on Twitter dude, right? Like, do you even know how to log into Twitter and she shredded him up? I felt really bad.

Raylene:

Like, you're gonna mess with a 29 year old Puerto Rican from New York. What the fuck is wrong with you?

Steve:

Unless you are also a Puerto Rican from New York. That's always and I

Raylene:

feel bad because I actually have no idea what her nationality is. But I just like I like for the record. I

Steve:

went with Raylene in case she is incorrect. I

Raylene:

apologize. I don't know what but I mean, I figured the New York and you know has

Steve:

the passion that it Yeah. unbridled. Like,

Bradford :

right. I would never get into a fight with her. You're absolutely right. She's Yeah, she's but so to that point, though. They probably thought initially right? Like, here's, here's a here's a freshman, which I normally don't pick on. The difference between her and other freshmen is that she was so far to the left, that I think they felt threatened by her because she just had these in their minds crazy ideas that she was bringing. And they saw also how she got elected a waitress from nowhere. That's elected.

Steve:

It was all grassroots, right?

Bradford :

So that's, that's where the intimidation comes from. That's where it's like,

Steve:

that was also including,

Raylene:

they were I don't think they were intimidated. I thought they thought it was ridiculous. This this woman who had never had a house or a kid or like any of the things that you kind of think you need to have an opinion on how to run the damn

Steve:

country. And that's what I mean. This is the debate for another time. But that's what I always say about there's so much money in politics. We need to find a way to wear a regular person to run in politics, even low level you've got a wealthy person.

Unknown:

I respect that she won. I don't like AOC working in New York City whose bartender was much harder than we just say we now see that

Steve:

have like what she has, like Wow, she's a powerhouse but you would miss out on that waitress or bartender with the great ideas and the great passion because that girl can't afford to run right office and you got to start low to work your way up. So that's a lot of money over time. It just that is like I said, it's another discussion for another time, but we were missing out so many great ideas and people because only the rich and wealthy are able to run unless you have backing from another rich guy but the story the end of the day is someone with a lot of money is involved somewhere with every election that exists

Raylene:

for sure. That's pretty much how everything is run over that. Can we can we cancel that instead of Dr. Seuss and Mr. potatohead cancelled Taylor Swift No.

Unknown:

Good luck with that one.

Raylene:

I have a feeling she's probably solid for the rest of her life carpool lane driver found using a mannequin passenger and I'm not surprised by that at all.

Steve:

This guy wouldn't far though. I mean, like he they put there in California. They even put like a makeup to make them look old.

Unknown:

Right. And a COVID mask is here. And if you're that close

Steve:

to a mannequin, and you can't tell that it's a mannequin to where it's like, Whoa, wrinkled up. Whoa, that was a fake person. He had wrinkles and crow's feet. Like if you're that close, you know it's a mannequin,

Bradford :

right? You know, when the person stomps on the brakes by accident, and instead of the mannequin mean, like, still like smiling that's a problem

Unknown:

or just forward. Oh my god, I

Steve:

just like imagine like we all understand the carpool like okay, yeah, you put it in there right? Crazy, but you had to do it before you left her house right? Yeah, so you drive thru at Dunkin

Unknown:

right get him a coffee and weird

Steve:

Oh my god, that guy with the mannequins back and you don't know he's going in the carpool lane. I would you know, when you have like an awkward situation, at least for me. I always like to alert the public of it. So I feel more comfortable with it. Instead of people going like oh my god, you see that? shitstain on his shirt. I'm like, Hi shit myself, everybody. Like that's not a real thing. That's a very extreme example. So for him, I just wonder like I'm picturing that what is your life before the carpool lane? I bet

Raylene:

time when they were smart and then wonder where the fuck they can get a mannequin

Steve:

actually is a great way you know ever killing somebody or doing some weird shit with mannequins. Like Jim what's up with the mannequin? Were you carrying a body last night? No, dude, it's for the carpool lane. I got a bunch of mannequins,

Bradford :

but also that that brings the question how beneficial is the carpooling you're gonna go to that extent to put a mannequin it's California

Raylene:

I'm sure it's very, very

Steve:

so as you get someone going slow and for at least in Hartford, that's the only place we have it in Connecticut. And other times I'm on now Mike.

Bradford :

Are you really the only times that I've ever been in that lane? The person in front of me is lower than

Steve:

go on that little like NASCAR level? I wouldn't think

Raylene:

I've seen so many cops pull up. I've seen it like I swear every single time I've been in Hartford. I've seen somebody do that. I've seen cops pull people are

Steve:

not the proof that they are not out to protect and serve. They are enforcing the carpool lane. Yeah,

Raylene:

no, they're out there to collect that money.

Steve:

As long as the car in front of you isn't going slow. I don't give a shit. How many people are in your car. Have one or 100 I don't care. I'm in the carpool lane. Why do we need police? carpooling,

Bradford :

I got pulled over. I be like, Officer, I am not alone. I have a split personality. Let me introduce you to Daniel.

Steve:

That's called a 72 whole

Unknown:

five

Steve:

I'm like a real math person when I can't figure out logic I like trying to turn to like stupid things. So like, I would like to do the math on how much time am I saving in this carpool lane compared to if I got caught alone right? What is the ticket? So now like we always think our time is only valuable while we're at work? like I always do that. I'm like oh, I gotta do I gotta go clean my car it's gonna take me four hours are gonna pay someone 50 bucks to deal it was my time worth four hours while What am I getting paid compared to spending you know only 50 bucks over four hours so I wonder what the ticket is? Because if it's like 100 bucks we caught once a month once every two months. You get to save 10 hours a week driving is that not worth $100.10 hour the $10 an hour

Raylene:

Yeah, I wonder sick time I wonder if they double it or whatever if they catch you more than once like all right, right every time it's got to go up

Steve:

this guy's like really known as mannequin Marvin like mannequin marvins been spotted again.

Bradford :

Right? What do you do when you get caught with a mannequin? That's got to be a heftier find they're like,

Steve:

Oh, wait, wouldn't you rather the only reason someone has a mannequin in the car that they are using it for the carpool lane? Like every other explanation is way sketchier than Oh, I just use it for the carpool lane.

Bradford :

I was just wondering like, I wonder how many guys have tried to use the blow up doll I'd be like I'm going to a gay bachelor party and we couldn't afford a stripper. So I got this blow up doll here. And

Raylene:

and we're in a hurry. So

Steve:

there is a dual purpose to the blow up. gives you the extra instead of the by the more realistic looking

Raylene:

exactly. Now if you just close her damn mouth, that's the

Steve:

you know those cheap balloons have that like the mylar balloons have that, like that seam along the edge. Yeah, I always think that's like what the vagina is of like a blow up doll.

Unknown:

Oh my god.

Steve:

Plastic razor blade.

Raylene:

Oh, it's probably just one of those handheld masturbation sleeves stuck up inside.

Steve:

I don't know I'm not hating on anybody that wants to like go out and get 30 employees and their thing your your world is different literally because women, women, women are complicated creatures. They need a lot of tools for me. I mastered this shit A long time ago. And the way it works is just fine and dandy with Mary. This

Raylene:

is what the Boy Scouts use. This is where I'm the best Boy Scout in the room.

Steve:

The weeble scout.

Raylene:

That's right, Weebles wobble, but they don't fall down. Okay, so finally, what do you say when you are inside a public restroom and someone knocks on the door?

Steve:

I brought this to everyone's attention because I've had this debate multiple times. Why do I have to say anything? The door is locked, and light is on?

Unknown:

Good point.

Steve:

If you jiggle the handle, why the fuck do I need to tell you? I'm in here? Well, it's

Bradford :

a public bathroom and it's locked because sometimes they close bathrooms. And what's to say that the person wasn't taking like the most epic dump and they passed out?

Steve:

Well then wait five to 10 minutes and then knock. Like I know people do drugs and that could be an issue. Right? But it's like, wait a few minutes and right and really have anyone that should be saying something? Why the fuck should I be saying something? You're the one that disturbed my shit. You're the one jigglin door now I'm all stressed out that someone's waiting outside the door and I'm trying to take a dump at a gas station.

Raylene:

So what you're admitting is that you're a public pooper. No, I

Steve:

know when I have to there's only select place

Unknown:

I'm with you there all places have a gas station those

Steve:

Home Depot uses their real Thailand shit. Like if you walk in there you look at the four seasons. It's beautiful bathrooms.

Raylene:

I'm the one the one I go to is just like a regular bathroom with the metal star. Where's

Steve:

your public bathroom? like where do you go?

Raylene:

I will go when I have to go. I will literally shit in the woods if I have to. I'm not picky.

Unknown:

I will choose anywhere

Raylene:

Honest to God I was in New York. No.

Unknown:

I mean, I mean,

Steve:

I actually had someone told me a story. I don't

Raylene:

poop anywhere on purpose. But when my body knocks and says

Steve:

now you're now you're now at 95 and you get that press junket you know you have a 510 Dunkin five to 10 minute window and you can choose a public one it's probably

Raylene:

gonna be a Dunkin because there's going to be one within 20 minutes you're missing.

Unknown:

Or Starbucks

Steve:

you guys you guys are amateurs I used to work on the road all the time that that is those are some of the most frequently used bathrooms ever you can't enjoy. The thing is it's not about cleanliness for me. I just want to poop and peace man. I don't want to hear someone out there. I don't want to hear someone in Washington. I just want to be relaxed and easy in my thing. So Home Depot's, you know works great to hotels. Yeah, they're kind of jerks about it sometimes, but I use this trick I've used it a couple times is you just tell them you have a room, right? If you're not gonna ask. Excuse me. Do you have a room? Yeah, I just got to use a bathroom real quick. I'll be right back and then just walk the fuck out the door and just leave. Those are some of the nicest clean bathroom you ever get. No one's coming in the movie theater. That one's hard to sneak into. Right? But you got to think about like where? Where's the nice where is it nice public bathroom Home Depot. Shout out to Home Depot. You guys kill it with

Bradford :

the Canady. Snakes aren't too bad like 95 going. That's not true.

Raylene:

They're disgusting. Yeah, no, they they actually was too easy. It

Unknown:

was right up there.

Raylene:

Swinging ahead. There was one of my friends husbands. His job was to clean the restrooms in all of the 95 corridor bathrooms and those

Steve:

are the ones where like the showers and stuff

Raylene:

now just the regular the regular bout and not they were down to once a week they cut them back to once a week and she was Yeah, that's all they wanted to they wanted to just pay them to come in once a week and clean the bathrooms and it was like okay, a pressure

Steve:

washer.

Raylene:

I don't know once I see at my age I don't get a lot of a decision time My body is like time to go now. Now

Steve:

I actually use this topic on the radio because it's a great like we're a local radio station so it's a great local topic to have on the radio because ever get to talk about their places to go and you're like help everybody out. I had someone literally call I don't know if they're there are a series and I don't know how you would even make this up. They said that like you they're in a situation where they had no choice and they were on the highway. They pulled off on the side of the road pooped in one of their socks. Oh, and then launched their sock into the woods. All right, and I get that's what Bradford is doing is he's doing that. Like that.

Raylene:

I don't know that I have a solid enough aim to actually hit us in And at that point i'm not sure it's gonna stay in Assad. I'm

Steve:

not gonna lie when the story was told to me I was like Oh gross and then once I thought about the pleasure of spinning that sock above your head, and just getting that perfect timing where it releases right in front and just hear it crashing through the trees, and just that thought of it landing would just be

Bradford :

my lobbies is that I would release it at the wrong time and it would hit a police officer. ladder and the cops windshield wipers would be like

Raylene:

rolled over to see if you were okay.

And so if you eat too much sugar your body just like I don't know converts the entire thing to liquid and and then you're just like, shit, I'm gonna die. And yeah, so I don't fit in a sock.

Or do I bring it in with me because I'm going to go in there and there's a really nice winery, but they don't have a place to put my handbag so it's gonna have so I have to put it on the floor. It's a legitimate thing because a lot of women I mean, I don't have a bag. I got nice handbags I pay hundreds of dollars for my handbags. I don't want to sit down on the floor in a nasty bathroom. Right? And so when I go into a nice place and there's not a hook for my handbag, I get annoyed

Unknown:

thought you were gonna miss the podcast. I was grocery shopping. And it was rough. I had to run all over town to get everything on my list. And I got elbow dropped by a little old lady over a pack of toilet paper. I don't see what's so great about shopping. It's a pain. That's because you're doing it wrong.

Raylene:

I did all my shopping while we were on the last commercial break. And most of it will be here by the time the show was over. See

Unknown:

what how did you manage that? Did you get yourself a personal shopper?

Raylene:

Nope. Even better. instacart. Instead of having to play separate orders at every store, I can place one order for all my favorites from a variety of local grocery stores on instacart. And they'll be delivered to my doorstep in as fast as an hour. They even let you know when your favorite items go on sale. Sweet.

Unknown:

Exactly. He's always traveling, you know, Lucky guy. We're just jealous. Yeah, true.

Bradford :

I am just that's what it boils down to.

Raylene:

So we've got our special guest in studio today someone that I've actually known for a while. And this is Angela Adam. She is the executive director of the greater Norwich Area Chamber of Commerce for the last eight years. She's also a volleyball coach and a mom and she's engaged to the sexiest Santa's in the greater Norwich area. You should probably not let them listen to this because it'll go to thinking about it. Oh, yeah. I just remember when you guys got engaged. I was like, oh

Unknown:

my god.

Bradford :

Can we tell that story real quick, that might provide some like, background cuz when people hear that she's married to the sexy Santa if I don't know, thinking

Raylene:

right or going to be tall and gorgeous. And sometimes he dresses Santa. I mean, do you guys roleplay with Santa? Are you at sexy, naughty elf?

Unknown:

I try to be sexy,

Bradford :

though, how that like what what event was that? That that

Unknown:

was actually at our annual meeting last year. And there was about 300 and over 300 people there? Yeah. I wasn't even sure if I was gonna propose. I'll be honest with you. I had it. I had a slide. I proposed to him. I want to hear the story. Yeah, so I wasn't sure he the last year we were talking about it. And I'm always like, I don't know, I don't know, you know, and so I'm always kind of hanging them on on a thread there. And then I was like, in December, I was like we need to commit to commit. So I'm talking all these women at this. We had like a wine and cheese party and I invited some women and I'm like, Listen, you know we do and so much for everybody else. We don't do enough for ourselves, we need to start committing to commit committed metta taking care of ourselves. One of the things that I realized in January is that I wasn't actually committing to myself or anybody around me and my immediate circle because I'm always working more is committing myself to others in volleyball and such. So I decided, you know what, I might do this. I didn't tell anybody my daughters or my parents or their I didn't tell anybody Bradford do Kathy knew from the chamber because I had heard you know, just to get the camera out. And I said I might do this, but I'm not sure. So I was panicking. And so Bradford was my sound guy and he was actually my What else would what what else? Were

Raylene:

you gay best friend?

Unknown:

confidant like you, girlfriend. You

Steve:

got this? You wouldn't be that person. Oh,

Unknown:

yeah. Yeah. So the I had one slide that just said, Will you marry and then I had to word me crossed out us. And then

Steve:

were you doing like a presentation to the room?

Unknown:

I had to do a whole presentation to the room. So we had a hole I really want

Steve:

to know cuz I live in a world of segways. How did you segue from the presentation to the proposal.

Unknown:

I don't even remember I

Bradford :

was kind of going through the slide. She's like, so we just want to thank you all for coming to another great annual meeting. And oh, yeah.

Steve:

Will you marry me up there?

Bradford :

And then a picture of her daughter and the dogs right because it's us, right? Yeah. So it's like marrying the family. Right? And he, and like everyone was like if this guy says no, that fucker dead, so he was like, yeah.

Steve:

Cena died last night.

Unknown:

This is all I see, I see Craig, they're looking at me and we have this thing you know, he says, you know, what the fuck, you know, like with this lips, right? He's He's not saying anything, but he's looking at me and I'm like, Uh huh. And I didn't know what to do. And then he had my friend Mary and my daughter looking at each other and my mom going Did you know Did you know? They're all yelling? I see one person in the back standing up with their arms way up in the air. I see another person to my right. She's like, Oh, she's crying. I tell I'm like Bradford turn it down, take it down. And he puts it back up and he takes it down. I'm like, I don't even know what to do anymore. So then I kind of so then they made him get up and he didn't know what to do. He didn't know what I was joking.

Steve:

So I think Santa would wouldn't be so nervous in this situation.

Unknown:

Well, no, he was because it's me. You know, like, he would do something like,

Steve:

never gonna dream of the day he gets proposed.

Unknown:

shock. I know. And especially for me, because I can't commit to anything like I commit once I commit like even coming here. It's like, I couldn't have actually said no to Bradford to begin with or any help with this guy. Yes, he did. And it was just one of those things. So I was so did he come up? And he's like, Are you serious? Are you just fucking with me? He goes, What the hell and I was like, I don't know. I was like, just go with the flow is like, but he and I are just there was no. Like, at that moment, as I look. And I'm going, you know, like, it was so funny. So and then, I don't know, I saw stuff afterwards. Like, I didn't want to watch anything. And then I saw I saw the two guys it was Roy and Rob from Fox was they were at the same table and I'm watching them laughing hitting each other laughing hands over the face because Craig's just sitting there and he didn't know what he didn't know how to react.

Steve:

Because I really think that's gonna happen to us.

Unknown:

No. Oh, and, and but I had a lot of women go up and be like, you know, the whole girl power and I'm going to propose to my, my boyfriend. And I'm like, I don't know if that's

Steve:

the Spice Girls on my way down the stage

Unknown:

if you want to be mad.

Raylene:

propose, okay. He said yes, though, right? Of course. Yes.

Unknown:

I wasn't worried that he was gonna say no, at all. I was just like, get up. Dude. I'm standing up here by myself. And

Raylene:

I'm just a girl on a stage asking a guy in front of every fucking body to make

Steve:

me that's such a taboo thing. But like when we think about it is but what like when you tell the story. It's like a really romantic like, sweet way to somebody when you went to the jeweler like did you have Did you have a ring to be like, Did you get

Unknown:

on the knee? No. Well, no, he I actually had gotten him just a regular ring at a Renaissance Fair spinner ring. Yeah, the ones that you know, keep busy. And I actually was going to give them that, but then I couldn't find it.

Steve:

could not get away with this.

Unknown:

Wait, he was actually late getting to the annual meeting because he was trying to find his rig that I stole.

Raylene:

I actually saw the proposal on Facebook because somebody had posted the video and I was at home in my office going. Oh my god. I was like, so excited for you guys. Thank

Unknown:

you. I didn't even know the video was out there.

Raylene:

Yeah, well, I saw it somewhere. I don't know who posted it. But I was besotted with the proposal, and the two of you. So let's go back to business. So what does a chamber do? What is a chamber of commerce?

Unknown:

Well, okay, so we've been around for hundreds and hundreds and hundreds of years, but basically, was the

Raylene:

American Revolution. But

Unknown:

basically, we're the voice of business. Okay, so that's just putting it very mildly. You know, we're a membership organization, as there's a lot of membership organizations out there. But the Chamber of Commerce is a business where the voice of businesses, you know, we help you to get out there to get your name out there to collaborate with the different events. So you and I were talking we were talking before this and you had gone to different events, but there's different events and when you should actually be doing business.

Steve:

I've been the chili Cook Off with you and Bradford. That's where I met you both. So I've like that's a great question from Raylene as I've always seen the chamber out, but I think a lot of people just don't really know what they do

Unknown:

know. So as far as like, say something like a blood drive, you know, that's helping the sponsors that's helping two different businesses to help sponsor an event for our community. That's great. I'm

Steve:

not gonna lie.

Unknown:

Yeah, so the radio station heartleaf CPR, I mean, there's, there's so many different sponsors that don't know how to get their name out there. And it shows that they're connected to the community. And that's just one event, a chili Cook Off way to bring the community get together. And then it also helps businesses to be able to put up your boots, right? Because we're at how else are they going to do they have to actually do all the work we do all the work for them as far as community events, you know, we help to collaborate that but we also are the voice to help with businesses to help with any legislative issues. And so what we do is we help to be the voice for that chamber to help get there to get their voices out there in front of our representatives. Now, whether it's the state senators or their representative, or the town representatives as such, so, you know, we host different legislative breakfast, you know, we help to get cbia here and have our businesses talk to him and say, Listen, I am a small business and I had these issues. This past year, obviously, we've had a lot of different issues because of the pandemic

Steve:

and it's I know it's your turn Bradford, but it's it's designed to help small businesses or at least localized businesses like it's not like Walmart comes in and they hit up the Chamber of Commerce.

Unknown:

No, it's it helps all sorts of business. We have 525 members within the chamber. Okay, legit legit members. Okay. So but they're connected with you know, one of our members is Foxwoods and other one is Mohegan Sun. Other one is back as their huge, you know, in our area, but they're huge, right? But how do you get their voice out? You know, you know, that they're a casino and such, but how do you get them connected with the smaller businesses in the area and let them know that they're there so we help them to connect they actually are very big supporters of our Healthy Living festival, you know, the Mohegan Sun Tribal Health Department. And so it's in Foxwoods and stuff there at our rock, the docks events, you know, so again, it's bringing larger companies smaller businesses in the area and they're trying to connect not only with their community but with each other. So you know, our business after hours I haven't seen you at our business after business after I allowed

Steve:

to go I'm not really got my

Raylene:

you can go as a guest,

Steve:

you will think of a professional I'm really not I'm just

Raylene:

anyway, I think pretty much anybody can go as a guest, right? You don't have to have a business, you don't have to be a guest. It's

Steve:

the name tag thing, that's a turn off.

Raylene:

Well, well, you don't want to be identified. name tags awkward.

Steve:

You don't want to be labeled Oh, like attention. So

Unknown:

these types of events,

Raylene:

you don't have to stick it to yourself.

Bradford :

Yeah, they're, they're made for networking. So it helps to know the person's name. I think the the name tags have some value there. But you know, how can how can people who are not business owners, so just general, everyday average people, how can they benefit from the resources that the chamber can provide to their community?

Unknown:

Well, looking at our events that we have in the community events, that's one of them. We also have different social media pages and different resources that are out there to help them as well so they can go to our website and we have different resources on the website, you know, especially now with the pandemic we have a lot of resources with that you know what really connected and I'm very proud of this moment last year we had to rock the docks Okay, so obviously we're in a pandemic, what do we do we can't have the rock the docks at our normal place which is at Howard brown Park because of the area you know, you can't control the crowd you can't make sure you're following

Steve:

no this is like the fireworks no Fourth of July what is what is the rock the docks

Unknown:

the rock? the docks is a six week concert series that we host of Yes. So it's Wednesdays at our brown Park. Yeah. So it's and then on Fridays is our acoustic

Raylene:

also you're not allowed to sing in Connecticut right now. So there's that yeah.

Unknown:

So that's true. So um, so we would instead of just you know getting rid of the event like a lot of people did you know they canceled all their vans what we did was we you know, I moved it over to dad stadium so dad stayed in my control the crowd nice yeah,

Steve:

it's a bigger location, it's

Unknown:

a bigger location. So people can spread out I maxed it out of 500 people I actually had to turn people away because people want to hear music right. And you know, we had two rows in front two rows and back four rows and four seats in between so it was very challenging. However, the reason why I'm saying I loved it is because I've been running the event, I don't know eight years and seven years and everybody just thinks that I'm Angie from the radio station or I manage the camera guide literally people stop me at the supermarket be like Aren't you aren't you that girl? The camera girl from that from the rocket I'm like yeah, that's me. I mean, you know but i and introduce myself you know, Angela great an ordinary Chamber of Commerce and you know, in all our sponsors, and they still think I'm Angie from you know, whatever radio station, somebody from the block, just tell,

Steve:

just tell them Jamie 107 so

Unknown:

there you go. cooler if I was actually that person, but I'm like no, I'm just answered. You are that cool? No one can be purple. She's beautiful. But you are that cool.

Raylene:

You've always been cool

Steve:

to check her out at 530 in the morning. I know she filled in for me about two weeks ago and I'm sure there's some shit thrown around. out there.

Raylene:

Oh, I need to talk to pebbles about how I can fill in for you right.

Steve:

In a big Darla not big shoes to fill. Angela what I've gotten from it because I asked like and Raylene, same question like what does the chamber do? What I hear is we bring the community you connect the community with local businesses so that they see that so what is the really like if I was a business, what is the I guess it's kind of the same question but it's almost like the mission statement of the charity, non charity started the chamber. Because what you guys do, it takes time it takes money and takes a lot of extra stuff to put on a concert like that there's a lot of moving pieces, what is really the ultimate goal of the chamber? Is it to benefit the business of small businesses? Or is it to connect the community to the businesses or the goal is it to

Unknown:

the entirety, the entirety, it's, we help I help a lot of small business, we help a lot of small businesses on many different ways. So we help them where I don't know all the answers, I surround myself with all the smart people, you know, with all the smart organizations, you know, we work very closely with organizations such as the waves, and Women's Business Development Corporation, Small Business Association, score sector, and all those organizations to help them to grow their business, we also work with a lot of different we help them to collaborate and what is what what what are we going to help them to, to accomplish? What is their goal, you know, so I look at each individual business, and they come up to me as whether it's Bradford, you know, coming up to me and saying, I don't know how to get my name out there. I don't know how to market and so we're gonna connect him with the tools that he needs in order to grow his business. So it could be marketing, you know, you could sign up with us and only use us to be on our website as a referral. Right? So somebody calls me up and says, I just need a referral for XYZ for cleaning. You know, they don't want to be they don't want to go to a networking events, they don't need to be there a small mom and pop, I don't have time, right? They don't have the staffing for restaurants. So we're going to be the voice for that restaurant, they're going to say Where can I go to get this and this and so I'm going to connect them and we're going to show them all the different, you know, restaurants in the area, we hold Restaurant Week, it doesn't there's no cost to the restaurants to do Restaurant Week. So we're going to be that marketing tool. And then we're going to utilize the resources the talking about Restaurant Week, I could come on here and talk about Restaurant Week and all the businesses that are there and what type of food they have and such. I'm going to go on your you know, these podcasts, I'm going to go on to radio stations, we're going to send out through sponsors through the larger the bigger companies that are within the chamber. And that's the key that the larger businesses that are in our chamber you had mentioned earlier, like why would a large business you know, why would a corporate business there are some corporate businesses that don't believe in joining the chamber and don't believe in community support?

Steve:

Well, you made a great example of the casinos. Now they're gigantic Fox's mahican are huge. They

Unknown:

don't technically, they're so

Steve:

bright gold to the way everybody lives, all the jobs that the people go there for to for them to be seen in the community is a really important thing, even though they are a gigantic Corporation. Yeah,

Bradford :

it says there and your directory. So no matter where you are listening from, I'm sure even in California, for example, your chambers probably have the same thing. If you're in need of a service, right? It's important to support local. So if you need something, support a local business, check with your local chamber, see if they have a directory first quick example of that, we're in the midst of looking for a home, my my spouse, and I and so we went to the chamber directory. And we found our closing attorney, we found our real estate agent, we found everybody on the chamber directory and I chose to go specifically with chamber members, because there's a special connection there. All of those members are really great people and they're good at what they do. And so by going on those directories, you're finding quality people that can help you accomplish the jobs or the missions that you're trying to do. So you know, definitely check out those directories because

Unknown:

it's it's a tizzy. Yeah, as far as what you were looking for, you found everybody in the directory and I was talking about this.

Raylene:

Yeah, I was, um, I've lived in a lot of different places. And everywhere I go, I joined the Chamber of Commerce. And I recommend if you're moving to a new area, connect with the Chamber of Commerce, that way, you'll have a directory of your attorneys and you know, who's going to serve as your pool and what the restaurants are and what's going on and get on their Community Calendar because they really are community organizations that benefit business now, and I'm remiss in that I haven't joined this one

Steve:

just to be the you know,

Raylene:

but I also know most people on the chicken bird so

Unknown:

I was gonna say with you, so it's whether it's this membership organization or other ones, you know, the Women's Business, networker, you know, the BMI is the all those rotaries the we're all connected we're all connected so what I tell people I've actually turned people away You know what, they're not quite ready they're not quite ready for the chamber yet because they don't even have a business plan. So I'm going to point them to the right direction to say what is your business plan what why do you want to join the chamber you know, so what is your purpose about joining I don't want them to waste money you know, and but any type of membership organization that you feel connected to and you feel comfortable and safe in and you know, when you can really kind of come out of your shell, that's where you start you know, so you start with all those organizations that I just mentioned, most of them are involved in the chamber you know, so they have their own organization and they they are you know, trying to get membership to them but how do they get membership You know, that's going to be pertinent to whatever their

Steve:

that that that kind of I'm, I'm a naturally cynical person. So you kind of answered a lot of the question there. So if I if I move like Raylene said I moved to a new town I'm gonna check out the Chamber of Commerce and see the list. Me being a cynical person, I'm like, Oh, well that well, Jim is just brother in law's with Alex. And they're just friends. And that's why these are just like the To Do people in the town kind of like working together. Now I know that's not the case, because what we just learned here, but again, if I'm a I don't nothing about the chamber, I'm gonna be like, Oh, well, these just must be just like everyone just washing each other's hands here. So if I, if I went down that list, the eight is the list and I saw it. What does that really represent? comparative? I'm the cynical person, how would you explain to me that list? Because I i'm not saying it is? And I know it isn't. But what does it mean for those members to be on the list? Because you just said they had to go. It's not just like, Hey, I'm joining like, you really have to be right for the chamber. So what does it take to get on that list? And why does it make it like those are the people you should be working with in the community and

Unknown:

listening to the people out there and listening to the referrals that are coming back to me, you know, so that's one thing. So if you call up the Chamber of Commerce, and you are you called me up, and you say, Angela, I need this, you know, I'm going to be honest with you, because I'm going to make sure that you're going to get the right people I'm going to still give you I'm going to give you a list, but then I'm also going to give you what who with the referrals and it isn't about you know, you have to trust who you're asking or asking that you shouldn't ask me, you know, so if you're if you're going to ask somebody a question, you're going to you hope that they're going to give you the most honest answer I'm going to say these are these are the cleaning services within the company. This is why I'm recommending them these are some referrals that they've I've seen and this is the feedback and then I'm going to then you're going to have to make your choice just like you do in any service that you do.

Steve:

So it's really a community service more than a business service way to where I guess I should work better that you the Chamber of Commerce exists to benefit the community not just make local businesses as much money as possible.

Raylene:

I think we're funny. All right. Well, I mean, we're at a,

Steve:

we're at a time. Yeah, why

Raylene:

didn't Why didn't time Hey, everybody, make sure you go to undebatable dot show. Sign up for Patreon. Because you want to hear the shit. I mean, if you think the shit we say on air is funny, you should hear what we say when we're not on air after

Steve:

we're done. We're kind of wind drunk. And me and Bradford are asking questions about periods.

Unknown:

That was so good. And there

Steve:

is a video about a week and then Bradford went into like, how guys like gay guys like hook up with each other like how they find the attraction. And that was ultimately fascinating.

Bradford :

The gaydar experience

Steve:

again, Hey, remember thinking about as the week went on, but I drink? What the hell was that conference, we

Bradford :

have a video on our Patreon page, which shows Steve and I learning how to insert a tampon into

Steve:

our thing that cotton will get caught. Right? But it's all explained in the video. Yeah.

Bradford :

But you've got to become a Patreon member to see that

Steve:

liquid moving against brick shame to be friction, like a friend

Raylene:

Bradford, I have a question for you because I just interviewed a guy named Joe cork on my podcast stand up comedy sex ed. And he's Have you ever heard of him? First of all? Okay, she's huge on Tick tock, because he said you don't have to be gay to have anal sex with a man. Yeah. Which I agree with? No, because the only thing that makes you gay is being gay. But he also wrote a book where he talks about there's the tops and bottoms. But there's also sides. I'm sorry, just when you run out of energy.

Steve:

Now that's my move.

Raylene:

He said there's an entire,

Steve:

like, yo, top and bottom are too much. We'll just lay on this side, I can move a hip. No,

Raylene:

he literally said that there are a number of gay men a percentage of gay men who never have any sort of penetration and they are not tops or bottoms or decides to do everything else. Like figurative

Steve:

side. So I didn't need to do that stuff.

Bradford :

Right? I am so confused if I ever dated one of those dates. See the door real quick? Well, I

Raylene:

mean, yeah,

Steve:

everybody wants action. You got to commit to one of the three.

Raylene:

Right? So you should listen to my episode next week, because it's not out yet. But it will be next week. Wow, sides.

Steve:

He's a real side dude.

Unknown:

He's excited Dude,

Raylene:

that his side hustle. It might be he's actually a doctor. He's a psychotherapist and I did not ask him that much running out of stuff but he told me all kinds of stuff like how gay guys you know like he said, heterosexual couples flirt and gay guys cruise. Yeah, I think it'd be cool I didn't know that there was a separate thing it's a separate thing cruising

Steve:

there's so many weird insecure guys out there that like if they would hear that would freak out for some reason. I think it would be an amazing thing for straight dudes to listen to two guys talk about how they go out and pick up guys because you know what? I bet it's the same thing we just replaced the word guys yeah with girls and nothing and when you brought that up last week I was literally like oh my god I have so many I didn't realize I have so many quiet like I'm literally not in a weird like oh how do you do I'm like really like oh my god I didn't realize there's so many actual questions I

Bradford :

have is straight guy I'm a very straight gay so what that means is that I don't really fit the mold of a gay So first of all, I believe in monogamy. I mean, you look pretty gay to me. I know like I'm double jointed my I've got scoliosis there's nothing straight about me but I am literally

Steve:

your double jointed yes and scoliosis he's like son of a bitch No, he

Bradford :

was like there's nothing straight about you that is so freaking cool. Yeah, no but like yeah I'm like monogamous which is super strange with gays because they don't really like to commit they like to play so when one

Raylene:

of my guys arguing for the gay marriage if you just want to

Bradford :

but they want to marry but then they still want to you know

Steve:

for lovers like oh rad for it that's why we

Raylene:

polyamory that's what they're into that right?

Steve:

Yeah. Settle down.

Raylene:

Yeah. Non monogamous polyamorous.

Bradford :

So I do more of the flirting than the cruising kind of thing. Yeah, I like to conserve my fuel. It's up to them to change.

Raylene:

I just I just love learning new shit. Like I would never in a million years ever thought you know, like, everybody's like, well, if you're gay you about sex. And apparently that's not true.

Bradford :

I'm gay. And I learned something today. So

Steve:

I mean, like my middle school girlfriends. What is that? Would they touch my deck through my pants once or twice?

Raylene:

Hey, so my title of my book when I write it is going to be called The Lost Art of the dry hump. And that's basically when that

Steve:

It's you know what the you know what the true art of it is knowing when to stop because I don't know about your physiology. Oh,

Raylene:

yeah, no, we're we'll stop and we're done.

Steve:

If you do that for too long, the front of you ain't working for at least three to four days.

Raylene:

Yeah, well, I mean, but for women, we'll just we'll just finish and be like, that was a great kissing session. Bye. Was it bad teacher when Justin Timberlake did that?

Steve:

Oh, I was picturing a whole different with

Unknown:

Cameron D is

Steve:

like Timberlake,

Raylene:

and he's like, Oh, abans everybody, and everybody's like, oh, haha. And I'm like, but I mean, it does though.

Steve:

You know what's funny about being a guy in America and a rich white guy in America. It took a Britney Spears documentary 20 years later for us to go Wow, he was just trying to bang her because she was a virgin. away. And we forgot you like fucked over Janet Jackson that whole process to it took 20 years to have not being this sexy, Mr. Famous for us to be like, yeah, that guy's kind of a douchebag it's really weird that for a white man in America, you have to be out of fame for us to be like, Yeah, fuck that guy. Still JT chillin in his arms. He was that guy. That's why that didn't happen to him in Gen AB. Yeah, blonde.

Raylene:

I mean, let's be real. 20 years ago, nobody was blaming white guys for anything. And now we realize

Steve:

and every kid from age 10 to 14 that's a boy was like, thanks for the free Teddy JT.

Raylene:

I'm not I'm not sure if Janet Jackson is 35 year old Teddy sagging out of her thing was

Steve:

looking for one of my few like conspiracy theories. That is a marketing campaign that 100% horribly bad

Raylene:

100% there's no way that was accidental. You'll practice

Steve:

that goddamn day. 500 times you didn't have a bulb fall out by accident. That was all planned. 100% just did not work out the way we expect. Yeah,

Raylene:

no, we everybody that was that was the beginning of being able to rewind. So that was the that is still the most rewound moment in history.

Steve:

Two years ago, we had Shakira and JLo were too sexy. Then we had the Janet Jackson boob. I think if we blended them together, that would be the perfect controversy.

Raylene:

Right? Also, that was a really great I didn't think either one of them were too sexy. I think there were exactly in the amount of sexy we're allowed to fucking be.
