Episode 91: The Garden Fresh Gourmet Interview

Show Notes:
Recorded Wednesday, December 3 2008 (9:30 PM - 12:00 AM) at Zodiac Racquet Club, Southgate MI
    “We interview Jack Aronson, the CEO of Garden Fresh Gourmet and the man behind Margaritaville chips & salsa; followed by a discussion of our favorite food-related Buffett songs.  (Special Guest: Jack Aronson.  Also appearing: Cindy.)

    00:18 - our recording coincided with the airing of CBS’s 2008 Victoria’s Secret
Fashion Show
.  Obviously our attentions were divided.
    01:24 - Schmoe and Mike will be seeing Grace Potter on December 11 at The Magic Bag in Ferndale
    02:02 - Cindy’s back.  But more importantly, she had my next beer with her
    03:07 - I don’t want to tell tales out of school, but Hud can be one gassy sonofabitch
    05:09 - Jimmy’s Outer Banks Diary
    05:41 - Realkiteboarding.com
    05:58 - a reference to the auto industry bailout.  Specifically, the second appearance before Congress of the Big 3 CEOs (December 4th and 5th), when, bending to public will, they eschewed their corporate jets and caravaned to Washington DC in hybrid vehicles
    06:26 - Schmoe’s first overtures for an interview date back to February 20 2008
    06:40 - Garden Fresh Gourmet
    06:43 - Margaritaville Foods | Margaritaville Salsa
    07:14 - the interview was recorded on Tuesday, November 25 at 4:30 PM (EST)
    16:44 - Westborn Fruit Market
    18:51 - our, arguably, first coolest interview is contained in Episode 37
    22:22 - Podschmoe.com
    22:59 - our iTunes link
    23:36 - Dickens Village, from Department 56
    23:48 - and it’s at this point right here that Garden Fresh Gourmet starts rethinking about dealing with us ever again
    27:12 - see 26:48 of Episode 90
    28:55 - Detroit Hoedown, sponsored by WYCD 99.5 FM
    31:01 - Seinfeld: “The Junior Mint” Season 4 Episode 20 (or try this Wikipedia link)
    31:13 - Schmoe would like to point out how it was Johnny Carson who used to joke there is only one fruitcake in the world, which people have been re-gifting for years
    31:30 - blah blah blah Episode 78 blah blah
    33:08 - James played wallyball with the guys but did not stay for the podcast.  He and Schmoe were late in arriving to the recording room, causing Hud to joke that James was giving Schmoe a towel-down and powder.
    33:59 - Greg is referring to the song from 30:40, not the song from 32:11
    34:55 - Tomorrow Never Dies was released December 19 1997 in the US
    35:19 - an inside joke.  Greg had been bragging about getting tickets to the Rose Bowl, but unbeknownst to him Hud, Schmoe, and Mike also went — and didn't let Greg know until afterward. For the record, U of M beat Washington St: 21-16.
    35:45 - I was mouthing “Margaritaville” and “Cheeseburger” to prompt Cindy
    37:04 - Schmoe has mentioned this Lone Palm story before (midway through Episode 61) but we left it in just for Hud's punchline
    38:54 - Cracker Barrel
    39:27 - this sentence will be replaced when I remember in which episode we dogged Schmoe

  1. Still bitter about the fact the no one even tried to contact me while in Pasadenda. Some lame excuse about not having a phone, bad service, not knowing a number. For some reason all three thought it would be funnier to tell me in March than try to get ahold of me that day. Petty on my part? Yes, but once-in-a-lifetime opportunities are just that.

    BTW Mic, way to work the magic on these episodes.

    As they say, it’s not MagIC without MIC.
