ICYMI: Daily Harvest Is Crumbling

In the past month, customers of the meal delivery service Daily Harvest have been suffering from gastrointestinal distress after eating the company’s French Lentil + Leek Crumbles, and some have even required surgery. The company is currently investigating the cause of these medical issues but has yet to find anything conclusive. On today’s show, [Rachelle] (https://twitter.com/heyydnae) and [Madison] (https://twitter.com/4evrmalone) speak to [Luke Pearson] (https://www.instagram.com/lukewesleypearson/) , an influencer who received the product in a PR package from Daily Harvest and has since had to have his gallbladder removed. They discuss his medical journey, what it was like finding a community online that was also suffering from these problems, and how it’s affected his future plans for brand partnerships. This podcast is produced by Daniel Schroeder, Rachelle Hampton, and Madison Malone Kircher. Learn more about your ad choices. Visit [megaphone.fm/adchoices] (https://megaphone.fm/adchoices) ...

Decoder Ring: The Sideways Effect

In 2004, the indie flick Sideways was released in just four theaters, but it had a big impact, earning five Oscar nominations and $110 million worldwide. “I thought it was just going to be a nice little comedy,” filmmaker Alexander Payne tells us. Instead, the movie became known for something else so notable that it has a name: The Sideways Effect.  In this episode, we explore all the outsized effects of this one little movie on the huge wine industry. Did a single line of dialogue really tank merlot sales for decades? Did an ode to pinot noir jumpstart demand for this expensive grape? Did Paul Giamatti’s sad sack character change our relationship to yet another wine, one that was barely mentioned in the film? Today on Decoder Ring, all of these questions and this one: Is it long past time to start drinking merlot? Some of the voices in this episode include [Laura Lippmann] (https://mobile.twitter.com/lauramlippman) , crime novelist; Tim Farrell, wine buyer for [Brooklyn Wine Exchange] (https://www.brooklynwineexchange.com/) ; [Rex Pickett] (https://mobile.twitter.com/rexpickett) , novelist and author of ‘Sideways,’ [Alexander Payne] (https://www.imdb.com/name/nm0668247/) , director, screenwriter, and producer; Jeff Bundschu, owner of [Gundlach Bundschu] (https://www.gunbun.com/) ; [Steve Cuellar] (https://sbe.sonoma.edu/about/faculty/steven-cuellar-phd) , professor of economics at Sonoma State University; and Kathy Joseph, owner of [Fiddlehead Cellars] (http://www.fiddleheadcellars.com/about.html) . We also mention Travis Lybbert’s paper corroborating the “Sideways Effect,” which you can find [here] (https://www.cambridge.org/core/journals/journal-of-wine-economics/article/abs/sideways-supply-response-in-california-winegrapes/FE14CECD927047BD0582207D77F1B09E) . Decoder Ring is written and produced by Willa Paskin. This episode was produced by Elizabeth Nakano.
