Thanks, Y’all. Two Years of Ballotin with Paul Tuell; Gratitude with Erin Jones


Thanks. Really, I am thankful to you for sticking around for the 229th episode of the Rusty Satellite Show on Thanksgiving weekend. I invited a couple of good friends to be on this week’s show with me.

First up is Paul Tuell, founder of Ballotin Chocolate Whiskey, who welcomed me in his Jeffersontown office where I saw a warehouse full of product. Paul, a former Brown-Forman exec, says the brand is performing better than expected since its launch, and that there are some big things ahead. Plus, he told me about some new cocktails – the Sleigh Ride and Elf on a Shelf, that you can order from your favorite bartender.

Erin Jones joined me in the studio after spending most of the last 24 hours in the hospital with her six-year-old son, who managed to run into an immovable object going full speed running away from a girl. Erin, who regularly suggests guests for the show, is planning a big Thanksgiving at home and has a busy December ahead.

In the news, Erin and I discuss the disgusting principal at Manual High School, whose days in that post are numbered after several allegations of racism and, well, making inappropriate comments to students. We also discuss the sweeping sage of sexual misconduct allegations and how it affects the workplace. On a lighter note, I’ve got a rosy prediction for Saturday big football game between the Cards and Cats.

It all goes well with turkey, so enjoy listening to the show this weekend.
