This week on The Morning After, solo-host Jessie Kiefer starts the show off in style with a crazy tale from the Front of House. Soon after, she welcomes Dr. Dave Ores to the program. Dr. Dave (as many of his patients call him) provides medical care for the uninsured in the NYC area and runs the Restaurant Worker's Health Care Cooperative (RWHCC) as well as the Fresh Start Tattoo Removal Program. With the RWHCC currently servicing restaurants in New York City, Philadelphia, and New Orleans, he talks to Jessie about providing free or discounted health care to all restaurant employees. He goes on to explain that each month the restaurant contributes money into a common fund based on its number of employees and in return, their workers can see Dr. Dave for any kind of health concern they might have. Prevention is key! Tune in for a very informative episode and to find out how to help Dr. Dave's cause. This program was sponsored by Heritage Foods USA.

"For healthcare, you want nonprofit because it's a different mission statement. In a nonprofit corporation, the mission statement... is to provide as much care as possible with whatever resources you have." [11:31]

"The reason why it (RWHCC) costs so little is because... you only pay money when something happens. With your private, for profit, insurance, if you pay them $1600 a month, they just keep it. If you don't get sick for 10 years, you don't get that back." [19:15]

"If you have nonprofit medicine, you have to make it function well." [23:31]

This week on Eating Disorder, the guys welcome the "edibles" expert, Chef Payton Curry, to the program. Seeking to train people to properly medicate using marijuana in their everyday food and cooking, Payton makes points on why this practice should be more widely recognized and why the opinion of marijuana should change for the better. Though the majority of the legislation throughout the country prohibits a restaurant like Payton's Brat Haus in Scottsdale, AZ to sell infused food, the chef has led many cooking classes centered around the green ingredient. With a goal to help rather than get the masses high, he also instructs on how to use the marijuana plant to soothe pain and irritation in a lotion form, for example. Tune in for a rousing discussion and learn a little more about alternative uses for marijuana. This program was sponsored by Heritage Foods USA.

"It's not about making chocolate brownies, and the world's strongest cookies. It's about helping people and making things that are good for them." [13:02]"

"It's about providing alternatives to big, corporate medicine." [13:46]

"You can make a great flour out of hemp, since 90% of America now has gluten-intolerance." [32:08]

This week on Snacky Tunes, Greg and guest co-host Carter Adams open the show with the musical stylings of Jonny Lam and then welcome Butcher Tom Mylan from The Meat Hook located in Brooklyn, NY. Hot off the release of The Meat Hook Meat Book, Tom talks about his inspiration behind authoring the cookbook and all that goes into the cookbook process. Greg highlights a part of The Meat Hook Meat Book that teaches the reader about the importance of knife skills, especially considering the horrific tale that Tom shares with the crew. Also speaking on the ethics of red meat, Tom gives his take on the timely issue along with up and coming cuts of meat. Later in the program, Greg and Carter talk with Jonny Lam and his band about playing country music and how Jonny has made his mark in the music scene by being an amazing pedal steel guitar player. Tune in for a meaty show with great live music. This program was sponsored by Heritage Foods USA.

"In the United States, there's maybe 10 well-recognized cuts of steak; probably less, actually. In our shop we have like 20." [21:49]

"I think that you'll be seeing more hare in probably 5 or 6 years, maybe sooner." [28:15]

"Chefs will look through the price sheet and see what is dirt cheap; a couple years ago it was ox tails, short ribs, pig tails, pig heads. I think that the only territory left is probably beef shank." [29:43]

-- Tom Mylan on Snacky Tunes

"I feel like there's probably less than 20 pedal steel guitar players in New York." [40:31]
