That's what inspired p.t. Barnum to get into circus in. Oh wasn't so. Firemen quickly evacuated visitors but anna was in an was being exhibited at the time and she was trapped on an upper floor. The stairs were in flames and she was too large to escape through a window. Firemen were unable to carry her to safety. Because at this point she was about three hundred forty pounds. God because she's very very tall lady so they just blew a hole through the wall. An outside wall was demolished and a crane was called to facilitate her rescue and that must have been absolutely terrifying. Would imagine what what floor was this.

Thumb who was I've seen those pictures.

Each of their size anna swan was visiting a circus in halifax when she was spotted by promoter and she was hired on the spot. And why wouldn't you hire her. Not only was she graceful and intelligent. She was very very huge. This was a production. That martin van buren bates was a part of as well according to the human marvels. Martin van buren bates was charming softspoken and eloquent. He also happened to be nearly eight feet tall. He was known as the kentucky giant all. Yes i remember that guy. I mean not personally. I read about him sure. The giant couple became a touring sensation. And of course they fell in love. Oh on june seventeenth eighteen. Seventy one in saint martin in the fields in london anna and martin married. The two are showered with wedding gifts. Anna's wedding dress was a gift from queen victoria. God yeah it was. A big deal wasn't a hand me down clearly i. I wouldn't imagine. No though. Queen victoria was she was tall right tall. No one no not that tall. She wasn't a giant not physically but now she was a giant when it came to queen. I feel like you're just being contrary to me today. Although i came here for an argument the just being contrary the gigantic couple settled in seville. Ohio where they bought a farm and they had a huge house built bit complete with custom furniture so the main part of the house had fourteen foot ceilings. The doors were extra wide and we're each eight feet tall. The back part of the house was built in average size so the front part was where they lived in did their stuff but the back is where like guests might feel more comfortable because not everything was enormou- would be a bit intimidating. You wanna go over and visit that Tall couple no. No no i. Don't i feel really insignificant. When i'm there their fireplaces terrifying in eighteen seventy two anna gave birth to her first child the little girl weighed eighteen pounds but unfortunately did not survive long after birth. There's your infant mortality. I'm ready. Yep yeah in eighteen seventy nine. The couple had another child. Ah boy and he was the largest newborn ever recorded at twenty three pounds. Nine ounces But sadly he did not survive. Either i feel like a real shit. Yeah you should good The two would sometimes tour for a bit during the summers but they spent most of their remaining years in ohio in their custom home. Quite happily in love. Anna taught sunday school. At the baptist. Church in seville and martin managed his farm in eighteen. Eighty eight one day before her forty second birthday. Anna passed away unexpectedly. They think it was some sort of heart issue. Her husband martin obviously very upset Prepared a monument to his wife atop her grave towers a fifteen foot statue of a goddess. Which is kind of you can see how you know. He thought of hers his.

"What else is creepy happening here. We'll get to that. The rouse simmons. The ship survived only survived for a little while. Now sailing in the lake michigan triangle on november twenty second nineteen twelve the ship and its sixteen crew members along with its captain never made it to their destination on the twenty third of november. The ship was seen flying a distress flag in clear conditions out. I thought you were just going to say the ship was seen flying and i was like holy shit. That would be quite an experience. You nope flying a distress flag but there were no conditions that would cause them to do that as far as weather goes So a rescue ship was put together organized a cinema to find out what was going on. They get out there and there was no sign of the ship anywhere. The ship was delivering christmas trees in. Although they never found the ship they found thousands of christmas trees and the captain's wallet floating near the shoreline on my business decades after it disappeared at scrapie. So it's christmas tree lumber and further loving mermaid. Okay there you go in october. Nineteen seventy-one the rouse. Simmons was found by scuba diver named gordon. Kent bella chard. It was off the coast of two rivers wisconsin. There's no official reason listed as to why the ship went down with. Its yuletide cargo. But they think it's likely combination of winter weather and maybe they had loaded too many christmas trees on the ship and caused it to tip over in october of nineteen twenty one ship called. The roosevelt left high island michigan. It was headed toward benton harbor loaded with lumber in it encountered some sort of disturbance along the way. They're not really sure. What probably weather related. But its remains. Were found forty two miles from milwaukee none of the ships eleven crewmembers wherever accounted for. Their bodies. Remain unrecovered to this day in one thousand nine thirty seven. The cleveland press reported of strange incident in the great lakes triangle. Captain george donner was guiding ship through icy and rough waters and It was april twenty eighth. He wanted to get a couple of hours. A shot is so we went to his cabin. The first mate knocked on the cabin door as they were approaching port washington. It was early on the twenty ninth of april. There was no answer. The door to the captain's quarters was locked so they went to the galley to look for him. He wasn't there no sign of anywhere so they they bust down his door because it was locked from the inside he wasn't in there he disappeared. They they never found his body. They don't know what happened to him. He went into his his quarters. He locked the door and he was never seen again. But you had asked what else has happened besides shipwrecks my obviously missing. Captain listen captain. That's one thing. yes although it is. It is ship related What about airplanes northwest airlines flight. Twenty five o. One in nineteen fifty was flying through the lake michigan triangle. While the airspace over it not you know they were going to new york city or no. They were going from new york city to seattle the plane. reached the east shore of lake michigan just after midnight on june twenty-fourth. The plane's captain whose name was robert c. Lind asked for clearance from air traffic control to descend twenty five hundred feet to avoid a lightning storm. That was brewing over the great lakes. Captain lind Was denied and then the plane vanished. Lind two crew members fifty five passengers also vanished. Whoa that night when the plane disappeared. A local of south haven michigan told reporters that he saw a terrific flash out in the lake. It was a strange light. It was also seen by others. One of them said quote. It was funny light. It looked like the sun when it goes down it only lasted a second and then it was gone. It was the worst commercial airplane disaster of its time. Bits of debris and tragically body parts Floated to the shore in the days and weeks after the airplane disappeared. Now it's assumed it crashed into lake michigan. Obviously because of the storm that it flew into but subsequent searches have resulted in no discovery of the airplane fiction writer. Clive kessler clad hustler. Yeah you like clive kessler. I have okay. He funds a yearly quest to retrieve northwest light. Twenty-five one from its watery grave. Every year he sends out a search team in every year. They come back empty-handed well lake. Michigan is a hundred eighteen miles wide and three hundred seven miles. Long gad's big body of water. Twenty two thousand four hundred six square miles now along with untold numbers of missing ships. And in this last case a plane There was a guy. His name was steven kubacki. And in february of nineteen seventy eight. He was reported missing. He was a student at hope. College had begun a cross country ski expedition but he disappeared. They swept the area looking for him. They discovered a set of footprints that lead right to the eastern shore of lake michigan and then just stopped so of course they thought he probably fell through the ice or something. His skis in his backpack were recovered nearby. Everybody thought well that's what happened. He fell through the ice. But then to everybody's amazement kubacki woke up in a grassy field. Fifteen months later and seven hundred miles east in pittsfield massachusetts. What he had no memory of where he'd been for fifteen months or how. He ended up so far away from home. His memory was that he reached the shore of lake michigan and then he woke up fifteen months later in a grassy field. He refused to discuss the situation. Even after he'd been rescued and to this day he remains silent about what happened. He won't talk about it so nobody knows what happened to the sky and there's speculation that he doesn't even know maybe he remembers but he's not talking about it he doesn't want to talk about. What was his money situation right about. The time that it disappeared was in an unhappy marriage. Tell me about his His business dealings was the gambler. A descendant of seventeenth century insurance conmen now this area also ranks very high with ufo sightings according to w. o. o. d. tv I'm sorry those call letters would there's this so much you could do with that. The i'm sure the wood. Tv news team provides stiff competition. Yeah anyway. They're based out of west michigan According them wisconsin police have been receiving complaints of. Ufo's over lake michigan. Since are you ready for this. Nineteen thirteen oh really in nineteen nineteen. There's a new york times article reporting two colossal balls of fire scene falling into the great lake. Now the paper speculated that they were meteors but other eyewitnesses said at the time they chalked it up to quote metaphysical forces wreaking havoc the sausalito news in california said that the rumblings from the impact were heard as far as south. Bend and laporte indiana. Goodness gracious.

"We had Well we really didn't use all the room we had We pretty much just stayed upstairs all the time but yeah this is a tiny apartment compared to what we're what we're used to even though we didn't use the space before it was nice to know it was there yeah Do i have to say that because we had so much just stuff in that house. Unpacking has started to get weird. I noticed that as as the packing went along got lazier and lazier and Toward the end like their boxes. That aren't even labeled. I found a bag today. That was a real look into our lives. What do you mean. It was like a mickey mouse. Tote bag and inside was scotch. Tape a bunion. Brace and a halloween. Pumpkin carving kit we are downsizing only keeping the necessities like yes obviously have that pumpkin carving kit italian quarter sweet avia absolutely is i want you to imagine that it. September eighth eighteen sixty hours of the dawn. You are on one of those side. Wheel paddle ships. Oh it's it's called the ps lady. Elgin this is fine now. You're coming back from a milwaukee with a bunch of partners and you're sleeping it off k and your ship runs into a another ship sinks. Yeah it was hit by the smaller schooner the augusta which was loaded with heavy lumber and it was headed to chicago and it's also the capital of maine. It is the lady elgin. Second made 'em w beeman Told the chicago tribune at the time. The vessel seemed to pay no attention to us. She struck us just forward. The paddle box at the side tearing off the wheel cutting through the guards and into the cabinet in hall and didn't stop. That's the weird thing. The augusta just kept on sailing to chicago as the lady elgin took on water and sank later. Losers hundreds of sleeping passengers on the over-packed ship Most of them. You know still kind of tipsy doodle from partying the night before where rudely awakened by the ship's crew banging on the doors trying to evacuate people frederick rice who was a steward said quote. Everything that could be done to try to stop. The whole was done. Mattresses were pushed into the whole. The planks were spiked over but to no avail too bad. They didn't have a bag. Full of bunion braces halloween carbon kits. Three hundred people perished oh as a result of this crash including the the captain of the ship is name was jack. Wilson he He spent the last few hours of his life trying to save other passengers. I feel badly now making such late fondness set of this death boat. Oh man yeah how cruel of you to point out the fact that they had no jack lantern carbon since the late seventeenth century. There's been an estimated six to eight thousand ships that have sunk to the bottom of the great lakes with about thirty thousand. Lives lost now some of these ships a good portion of them have mysteriously disappeared without a trace in a relatively confined region of lake michigan. Known bomb bomb bomb as the lake michigan triangle. On my goodness had you heard of this me neither. No the lake michigan triangle. So all kinds of creepy type things happen there. Yeah yeah is that where eels spawn. That's the sargasso sea. That's the bermuda different triangle altogether. Now the three points of this triangle are marked by three different cities on the wisconsin side. There's to on the michigan side. there's a ludington to the north end benton harbor To the south now it's not just shipwrecks but all kinds of weird unexplained phenomena and frightening legends are related to this area and this goes all the way back to the late seventeenth century when a french vessel disappeared. Never to be seen again. This is the first reported shipwreck in the history of the great lakes. The french explorer rene robert ca valley sierra de la salle he commissioned the construction of a ship called laguna fall. Oh the griffin yes. It was a massive ship and it was designed to haul for pelts during the The heyday of you know furring industry. The fur pelt days yup in August sixteen seventy nine liberal set out on its maiden voyage. It was going from niagara to outpost in the straits of mackinac Some historians also say that they were attempting to find a northwest passage to get to china and japan but it really doesn't matter because liberal phone Vanished while traversing the lake michigan triangle. Now salad gotten off the ship. He had departed for the mainland and he sent his crew in six members on the journey. Interesting the ship and the crew never heard from again that to me. Says something fishy is going on. Like some sort of sabotage. Maybe he had dumped too much money into the new shell. Also it was like a sort of insurance. So you're suggesting it was some sort of a late seventeenth century insurance scam all right. Well in two thousand one a researcher. His name was steve lieber Found what he claimed to be gra phones. Bow sprit at the bottom of lake michigan. It was elaborately carved. He claimed With a sculpture of a griffin. A mythical half lion half eagle creature. His findings have not been yet verified. Ha and the rest of the ship has never been recovered or seen again then. In eighteen ninety one there was a ship called. The thomas. thune often sailed with some sister ships between the ports of muskegon and chicago the shipped. Would they were owned by lumber barons. The thomas woon and the rouse. Simmons headed to chicago from muskegon to To transport a load of lumber they got there they dropped the would off. And they both head back to muskegon but a storm was a bruin. And the hamas thune said we're going to keep going anyway whereas the rouse simmons headed back to chicago to wait the storm out. Well when the rouse simmons returned to muskegon it was a couple of days. Later and There was no sign of the thomas. Boone in the harbor. So they're like. Oh the lumber barons that owned that fleet they put up a three hundred dollar reward for information on the whereabouts of the thomas thune but the ship and its seven crew members were never found. They mounted several different search efforts to try to find the crew and the ship it just totally disappeared until two thousand five. Oh wow professional. Recovery diver found the intact remains of the thomas. Hyun was located in the southeastern portion of lake. Michigan and experts. Say that it Looked pretty much like they had just been overwhelmed. By turbulent seas caused by the storm and capsized in the lake michigan triangle. Now so you said that other things happen to you. Know we've talked about several shipwrecks now but you said that other creepy stuff happens it. And so i'm wondering if maybe like is there a lumber and firpo pelts loving band of mermaids. What's what.

"Steven. Johnson joins US now. He is the author of many books many bestselling books including farsighted. And how we got to now but he joins us to talk about. His latest book is called enemy of all mankind. A true story of piracy power and Histories. First Global Manhunt Steven. Thanks for being here but much having me. There are lots of exciting terms just in your title and subtitle alone. I WANNA start with those even though and we'll talk about this. There's a larger story that you want to tell with this book but let's begin with piracy because that's a fun word. What happened on September Eleventh? Sixteen Ninety Five. There's a kind of interesting bleak poetry to the fact that this happened on September eleventh. Basically the events that are at the center of the book is a clash at sea in the Indian Ocean between pilot. Ship led by a very mysterious figure who would become the most notorious criminal in the world. A guy named Henry Avery and a much larger Indian treasure ship whose name was anglicized as the gun sway and the translation of that into English is excessive treasurer or exceeding treasure. So they were being pretty conspicuous with maiming. This vessel in terms of the of treasurer on board and effectively. These two ships confront each other on September eleven sixty ninety five by all rights. The pirate ship should have been easily overpowered but to incredibly unlikely things happen a cannon onboard board that Indian ship explodes because of some kind of malfunctioning design which basically turns cannon into a bomb when it explodes in so instantly. There's this you know. Many people on Indian ship killed the deck catches on fire. And at the same time. The first cannon fire from the pirate ship manages to have this incredibly lucky shot where they split the main mast of the Indian chip in two which effectively disables at in in the water and so the pirates are able to board the ship they pull off this heist that in today's currency we be would be worth as much as one hundred million dollars so it makes one of the most lucrative crime some in the history of crime and triggers a global crisis that reverberates around the world. Okay before we get to that crisis because you would wonder why one active piracy would do that. Just general picture of the piracy problem at that time. I'm always taken aback by the way that pirates are these cute Nara dwells in children's picture books or like Johnny Depp for many people. But that's not what piracy was back. Then what did it looked like? And was this unusual. Well actually one of the origin points to this project for me was years and years ago. I mean something like fifteen years ago. When my kids were very young we went to Disneyworld and we went on the pirates of the Caribbean ride and it was right after nine eleven and I had this on. I was floating down this little canals. That ride songs are being song and everything. That's very Kelly. The that the pirates were the terrorists of the seventeen hundreds and sixteen hundreds right. They were these terrifying figures would show up out of nowhere and burn your village down and attack. The women and people lived in fear of them. Here was three hundred years later. And it's just a kind of a children's story so they'll link between pirates and terrorism. Which is something that runs kind of subtly through enemy of all mankind actually began on that. Disneyworld ride in some ways. But what's historically really important about pirates at this point in history and one of the reasons why this particular story has so much significance. I think is up until this point. There was a very blurry line in terms of the legitimacy of piracy so there was this other class of occupation. That was called being a a private here. And if you were a privateer from all outside appearances you're a pirate attacking other ships and stealing their treasure and doing all these atrocious things that seat. But as long as you weren't attacking if you were a British privateer as long as you weren't attacking British ships. You're within the zone of and people like Francis. Drake a couple of generations before Henry Avery. When often basically we live the life of piracy but then came back to England and was knighted and bought a giant estate and lived a completely legitimate lifestyle. And so in a sense what happens to this period because of crime for reasons we can get into. It's a turning point where the British crown finally has to take a stand against piracy. They have to basically announced to the world that they're not a nation of pirates the way they've been accused to be. Let's talk about what made this pirate attack so noteworthy. Obviously there was the hall but were there other things that made this a big deal at the time. There are a couple of big ones. I is the other element of the crime. This ship that they attacked was a ship that had been doing business and ports of call like Mocha in the red seat but it was also filled with religious pilgrims coming back from Mecca on a whole other level was kind of a Muslim like religious transport vessel as well and among those pilgrims were a significant number of women women in the Royal Court of Aranda. Who was the great grand mogul of India? The last of the moguls and this was an unusual thing. At the time right you would not see a lot of big vessels in sixteen ninety five. That had a significant number of women on board but there are all these female pilgrims on board and so when the pirates attack the guns way they find these women there and number of the pirates rape the women on board. Some of the women commit suicide jumping overboard to avoid being attacked. And so there's this kind of outbreak of the atrocious sexual violence that happens as part of the crime and of course WORD GETS BACK TO WRONGS. Zab that not only has a hundred million dollars of his assets been stolen but members of his extended royal family have been sexually attacked and violated and this all is crucial in terms of geopolitics. Because it's right at a moment in a time where there's a major economic transition happening in the world. There's a chapter in the book called two kinds of treasure and is basically. There are two different ways of making a fortune that are in conflict with each other here. There's a very old way which is represented by Aurangzeb which is have an autocratic dynasty tax year citizens. Sit On that wealth and pass it onto your descendants. That's what every most of the rich people in the world at this point where people who were members of some kind of royal family that had some kind of dynastic wealth. But there's this new way of making money that has just appearing in it comes in the form of this interesting embryonic. New Organization called the multinational publicly traded corporation and that was the east India company. The east India Company was the first company that actually had publicly traded shares. So that people could. Outsiders could invest in the company in those shares could go up or down in value and for the first time people were making money not just through the prophets of the business but through the increase in value of these publicly traded shares and that turned out to be the future. Right dot is how if you look at the one hundred richest people in the world today. The vast majority of them were people who made money because they had traded shares in a company. They found that their parents found it. So in a sense clash between these two massive economic forces and Henry. Avery in his little pirate ship gets right in the middle of it because once. Iran's UB here's that his money has been stolen in women have been raped he threatened to eject the east India company from India which is the main source of their income. They've been trading CALICO and chinse fabrics and so on and if that had happened if they've been thrown out of India the whole course of the British Empire would have been transformed. It's entirely likely that the British Empire would not have formed in in India in the subsequent decades. If the east India company had been injected. So why wasn't it? Attracted rings up puts a number of the employees of the east India Company under house arrest and threatens to execute them and they began a furious letter writing campaign back to London. Saying we have to find the pirate we have to bring him to justice and we have to announce to the world that we are not going to tolerate piracy anymore or else this whole incredibly lucrative business that the country is increasingly dependent on is just going to disappear and so. That's what triggers this global manhunt really the first one in

"Hi David Malls led the post lockdown lessons learned from a sword fighting banker bankrupt and France drama was a financial advisor effectively to the French government. It turned out that law himself. Pretty untrustworthy character have been involved with Julian. Blue Gua- money including the French state economist. Stephen King on how the tragedy of John Lewis. Three hundred years ago is informing decisions today. And how bad bank could help the UK and this lady? I've seen every day since the stars. The lockdown skateboarding around ECHINACEA spoke on the other day she starts rolling around with Brune evening. Standard features right. Osam Fishwick on the creative way some commuting to work along with advice on how to do it motor nationally taken from the evening standard's editorial call them. This is the leader Kuna virus daily for the whole thing. Pick up the newspaper or had to standard Yokota UK slash comet in the moment. How bad banking could be a good idea? Economists were a bit of a different breed in the seventeenth century in the Evening Standard. Coma Stephen King written about John Lewis. Who killed a rival with a sword and Bloomsbury square escaped jail and to cut a long story short went on to bankrupt. France arguably caused a revolution there the name San Shivers down the spine of Manny's modern day economists because what law did in Paris shows the fragility of a country solvency. We'll be talking to Stephen in a moment but the names come up because the UK needs a way to revive struggling economy without endangering its future. One proposal is a bad bank which are notorious call. Things could be a good idea. A bad bank is not a failing financial institution it's the term given to an organization that is set up by government to help other failing firms return to health at the moment the government is extending loans to thousands of small and medium size companies. That would otherwise go bust. However behind the scenes the treasury has also been negotiating much larger bailouts for big companies like airlines and steel makers in return for assistance. The government is considering taking equity stakes as well as making loans so that the tax payers share in the upside if the company recovers the civil servants. Apparently want to repeat the idea. They came up with for our BS and Lloyd's of giving them to an arms length. Government Agency to run so they are free from political interference. That freedom works on paper but not in the real world of democratic politics. The only answer is to make the government ownership as brief as possible. Don't get hung up with talk of making a profit on the sale. We're not out to make a quick buck. We're out to save the economy and get the free market back onto its feet. The Economist Stephen King is with me now steven. You've written an article for the evening standard talking about the financial problems being faced by the U. K. And you've mentioned the lessons from John. Lewis Stephen. How is a banker from three hundred years ago? Relevant the reason why I refer to John Laura. John Law was and financial advisor effectively to the French government. Three hundred years or so ago he came up with a sort of crazy idea that if there were huge investments in Mississippi which was part of the French colonial story. At the time van those investments could pay off significantly with add to the tax base. And the French because grow its way out of its problems and it turned out that law himself as a pretty untrustworthy character have been involved in the jewel in Bloomsbury Square. Having tried for murder had absconded to Europe they became advisor to the French government at the time and unfortunately his scheme to try and make money out of Mississippi. Kind of drowned in the swamps of Mississippi didn't really go very far and often lot of people lost a lot of money including the French state and in particular John Law himself died a pauper. We won't be Kofi as bad as that but when you look at the basic very conservative central bankers and finance ministers and selling as conservative of the small sea and we look around them today. It's all they want his face with the same kinds of problems. John Law phase three hundred years ago. The sense that bills he paid eventually. That debt levels will rise rapidly. No one's quite sure as yet as to how to deal with us. How big is the risk of a lot of bankruptcies in the UK caused by this pandemic? Well the hope is that huge amounts of government. Barring will actually reduce the number of bankruptcies could be a massive hit to GDP in the second quarter of the Sierra. Everyone now colleges but what the government is trying to do quite reasonably I think is to in effect companies into hibernation and the hope is that they can be hybridization game bankrupt then. They can four out at some point later this year next year. Go back to business as usual. Because of the cost associated with that namely that government debt itself rises rapidly particularly the sheriff the national economy and Guess Hibernation with no end. Date must be a concern. Yeah a huge uncertainty event. Jay Powell the chair of the Federal Reserve interview of the weekend really underlining how how uncertain things are because as economists and central bankers. You you know we sort of rely on your economic models to tell you. Roughly speaking where things are heading but of course we're looking now at epidemiological models instead and hopes about vaccines or vaccines. Not Materializing perhaps and so. The outlook is is incredibly uncertain. And of course this term means that businesses themselves might normally be investing given all the help being given in terms of interest rates being very low and all sorts of help from the government and the current circumstances they choose instead not to invest and of course that also means the movies from the long term scarring associated with this crisis. Is this idea of a bad bank. That's being floated about one that takes on the debts of the the worst hit companies. Something that's feasible. The years he won't companies to survive. You really want to tell them you can survivor. Only under the condition that you take them off of debt yourself because of course many companies will say. We'd rather do that so ultimately you have to find a way of getting these debts onto the public sector's balance sheet. The principal really is very straightforward. The government is effectively borrowing from future selves to Safeguard Economic Conditions for future sells more companies. Survive the better things will be so whether you call it a bad bank for whether you simply coordinator. A government bailout. The underlying story will be that government debt will rise much more rapidly norman expansion and of course the the previous occasions. This happens basically drew time and you can read more from Stephen in the evening standard or online at Standard Okuda. Uk next the habits have changed. The office is changing and nine to five is changing lots of people hate community anyway. Features Right Osam Fishwick on the new commute. How are people getting.
