The Air Force Struggles With Diversity. Can The Space Force Do Any Better?
"The newest branch of the military just promoted its first female three star general. The US Space Force also recently appointed the nation's first all women space operations team. Top space force leaders say gender and racial diversity is a core part of the mission. But his Colorado public Radio's Dan Boyce reports, some female veterans are skeptical. First Lieutenant Kelly McKay serves with the all female Space Operation Squadron stationed at Schriever Air Force Base near Colorado Springs, The squadron command's one of the country's GPS satellites. I obviously never gotten work on all female crew for these were women that I've I wanted to work with their close friends of mine and co workers. The work of the space force is almost entirely digital Space Force members operates satellites and other national space assets from computers down on Earth. Lieutenant McKay says an all female squadron makes a bold statement for the military's news branch. I'm hoping that women will see that they have more opportunities, and they might have realized growing up as long as they're actively seeking out the women to come there. They have a great opportunity to be the the service that leads the way Don Christensen is president of the nonprofit Protect Our Defenders. The group focuses on reducing discrimination in the military. The space force grew out of the Air Force last December, Christensen says It's continuing the airforce tradition of a better gender balance than the other branches. But he worries the space force could continue another worrisome course when it comes to racial disparity there force with worst in analyzing military data Person's sins team found black airman 70% more likely than their white peers to get court martialed or receive other punishments. The air Force is own data shows that trend getting worse in recent years. Nevertheless, in just the last few months a couple of milestones confirmation of the first Black Air Force Academy superintendent and then the first black Air Force chief of staff General Charles Q. Brown Jr. Here's Brown's own candid assessment of the challenges ahead. I can't fix centuries of racism in our country, nor can I fixed decades, discrimination may have impacted members of our Air force. How much to make of these nominations depends on who you talk to.

Yea, we promoted on so don't complain anymore, okay? And we're like, Okay, So what? We want to see his action. What policies? Are you going to drive? What changes? Are you going to drive? She argues the ways to report discrimination in the space force are all inherited from Thie Air Force. And if you don't restructuring I honestly I don't. I'm not sure that you'll be able to restructure. I don't know. I just think they might continue get away with it. Unfortunately. Pacheco says As discrimination charges work their way up the chain of command senior officers often suppress reports to avoid looking bad themselves. They're going to be shaped to encourage honest communication, the space force's chief diversity and inclusion. Officer Carrie Baker says They've already placed heavy emphasis on developing open minded leaders and pushing them to learn about unconscious biases, even to the point where one should be careless enough to Speaks to their leadership about concerns that they have without concern of retribution. Baker says. The space force has targeted outreach initiatives to recruit women and people of color. Keep your eye on us. We're going to make you proud Tanya would nightie professional.

She compares the all female crew to the Tuskegee Airman, Those heralded black fighter pilots from World War two. That was an experiment. But was it sustainable? You know, do we still have that level of diversity? Now? She wonders if the space force doesn't address fundamental challenges involving race and gender.

Maj. John Rain Waters: F16 Deployed & Demo Pilot, USAF Instructor, and 777 Pilot
"Give us a little bit of background just like a quick elevator. Pitch on John. What what have you been known for? What are you doing now? Yeah so I started flying in high school. Got The bug hooked and I wanted to go sir. By countries so best of both worlds is able to go fly in the Air Force has been twelve years flying air force mix from being a t six instructor pilot flying that sixteen and eventually the being. F16 DEMO pilot edges recently transitioned into airlines flying. A triple seven right now. Right on very cool. So let's start at the beginning then so you started flying in highschool tells about where you got the bug and how that love for aviation started. I Group A community. That was just full of aviation a lot of Delta pilots. Round where I live in all our ex air force next navy guys and my neighbor actually took me flying in a piper cub but a day it was like seventy degrees as absolutely beautiful door open when cruising around. I think that was the first Hook I had put in me for aviation. My Dad was a big influence. He wasn't a pilot but he saw it as a great career. Opportunity to kind of push me in that direction and so I was fortunate to have someone who wanted to teach of a friend of mine. Fly His son. He wants you to send out a fly but he wanted to teach them to fly with someone so I was fortunate to be able to be that other person and me and my friend were taught how to fly. My I fly was on September tenth. Two thousand one. So the next day I was is a big moment for so many across the world little in America so when September eleventh happened that really solidified my desire to WanNa go serve and if I go serve while flying two birds with one stone and was fortunate. That's where I put all my effort in high school was to get an ROTC scholarship. Go in and get a pilot slot and then flying air force now. That's amazing I think for me. No connection to nine eleven. I think I took my first flight less than a year after that. So yeah September Eleventh. Two thousand two so wild and crazy now coming up with me. It's almost two decades ago right so there's so many people that you know in op. See Our age no it lifted everyone holderness no it and lived it but you know being the demo pilot going out and talking to kids. Now there's just we now have the first generation of Americans serving in the military who were born after September eleventh. Yeah so is just. It's such a such a big event moment in history for so many people and it's crazy to hear the different stories and then you go dig up my logbook and take a picture of an shared or something because it is kind of wild. I remember another friend of mine that has a similar store to you is working the financial sector nine eleven happened and then he became. He became an air force pilot as well. He ended up in the rapture. But you know he. He felt the call as well so Can you walk us through? What the process for you as like say in high school to get to that point where you're qualifying to be a fighter pilot. I don't know if that's like an acceptable her. But you're obviously shooting for something there. So what's that process like to actually get in a position to be able to do that so for me? I think most people the average is a very long process. They're opposites exceptions to someone who monitoring have their degree in apply saucer training school which is a shorter condensed program and they go off and become a pilot but on average most people commission become officers in the Air Force which you had to offer to be a pilot most people commission through the Air Force Academy which is a four year college military school out in Colorado Springs or through ROTC which is at most universities across the nation. So I did ROTC Georgia Tech. But you start queuing yourself up in high school because you have to be competitive in order to get into. Rotc or get into Air Force Academy so mine started really like eighth ninth grade looking to see whether requirements were in order to get a ROTC scholarship or get into the Air Force Academy which is good. Gpa's good sat be well rounded so be involved in sports or working but they also want to see in those processes of work or your club or sports that over the course of three or four years you go from. Yeah the guy who just joined the group to being the club president or being the team captain. Because they're looking for leadership ability so it really cute up early on and it was a long path just to get ROTC and get into college and then once you get into ROTC or college Air Force Academy. The process kind of starts all over again. Because you're competing with everyone who's shown up at the end of school your junior year. That's really when most people find out what they're going to do in the Air Force. Three years to develop as a leader develop as an officer. Show that you had that potential to serve at a higher level and function at a higher level and then you apply for pilot slot or navigator slaughter intelligence officer. Whatever might be but you've been racked and stacked against your peers. There's a number one. There's a number two. There's a number ten and they all comes down to the needs of the air force so if we need ten pilots great news for that group of ten people but if there's only need to pilots than the top two people get that that's a very broad brush gail but in the end it's a really long process typically in order to get to that point and it's a big investment to write without being guaranteed that you're actually. GonNa get that slot you're putting in years and years of work before you ever know that you're GonNa get pilot

Robert Kolker Discusses 'Hidden Valley Road'
"Us about the Galvin family. Let's start with the parents. Don and Mimi there. The subject of this book Don really lived through the greatest moments of the twentieth century. He was a World War Two veteran and the two of them put down roots in Colorado after the war and raised a family and had twelve children. The twelve children's span the baby boom the. I was born in nineteen forty five and the last in nineteen sixty five and they were known in Colorado Springs. Colorado is sort of a model family. Everybody knew the Galvin's with their twelve children and the oldest was a football star and dated the general's daughter at the Air Force Academy and all of the boys were Jock simplisafe on every hockey game. They played they were sort of legends at the time but nobody really knew that privately. The family was suffering that that in the end six of the twelve children were diagnosed schizophrenia. And it was at a time in America where there was a lot of shame and stigma around mental illness. Even more than there is now where the parents were often blamed and so it was a secret for as long as they keep it a secret and that just lead to more damage and the youngest children in the family really suffered the most from living in that house full of secrets before we get into their stories. It's interesting that you say everyone knew the Galvin's in Colorado Springs. My cousin actually grew up in an air force family in Colorado Springs and had never heard of them and so it might be that. She's she's younger. She's in her forties now. But I'm curious how you came across this family and their story because you're not from Colorado Springs. Yeah their heyday was in the early years of the academy. Right after the academy opened in the mid fifties that was when the family really started to rise up so they were best known in the late fifties. I know about them because the youngest two children the only girls were friends of a friend of mine. And for years. These two sisters Margaret and Lindsey had been talking with one another about the best way to let the world know about their family but they realized they couldn't do it alone. There was a lot about their family. They didn't even know. I mean a lot of these brothers were fifteen or twenty years older than they were and then of course a lot of the medical records. They didn't have access to and a lot of the stories that their parents told they couldn't necessarily verify on their own. A lot of legends going around and in fact they some of the worst things that happened to the family had been kept from them kept secret from them because they were too young when it happened and so finally they decided to turn to an independent journalists to to cover the family independently to take the story wherever it would lead and they were confident in doing this because they felt that the there was scientific value medical value in focusing on this family and they knew that researchers had been talking to them for decades and they wanted to know what those researchers learned as. Well okay all families. Don't get along perfectly. And I imagine a family with twelve children. Probably even more so where they unanimous in their willingness to collaborate with you to answer your questions be interviewed well aside from being completely gobsmacked by the story and and really could not believe all. This happened to one family. I was pretty convinced in the beginning that there couldn't be a book about this because of medical privacy laws that all all it would take was one sibling standing up and saying what you WANNA book about this family no way and then suddenly it would get very impossible so I worked very Slowly and really took it very easy and over several months I would get on the phone. Maybe once a week with different family members saying so you know your sisters are interested in having a book about your family. How does that make you feel and sort of got took the temperature of the entire family and to my amazement everyone was interested in. Everyone was ready including Mimi. The family matriarch who had been so determined to keep everything secret for so long. She was in her nineties. Ready to talk about it too. She died in two thousand seventeen after you interviewed her. And I want to talk about that interview a little bit because as you mentioned earlier at that time schizophrenia was often blamed on mothers. Yes and and so. She was thrilled to be talking about it from a genetic perspective. You know. We're in the Arab genetics. Now so it it made her feel good to be able to say yes. Well now. We know that it couldn't have been bad parenting that it was genetics and so two that part she was happy but she was really part of her survival instinct and part of what made her so functional for so long was that she could really move past a lot of the unpleasantness in her life. So getting here to talk about unpleasant subjects was not easy and of course. I didn't WanNa get a ninety one or ninety two year old to to do anything. I didn't want to traumatize someone who was clearly in such frail health. So what proceeded was me sitting there at the kitchen table with her and her two daughters were at the table too and every time she would try to deflects the conversation. One of her daughter's would go. Oh Mom and and try to kind of cajole her gently back to talk about the unpleasant stuff and eventually she she was able to really open up about some very difficult things and I was really grateful to get that kind of clarity from her. Twelve children is difficult enough. I mean twelve children. Ten of them were boys even if they did not suffer from mental illness even during the baby boom. That's a lot of kids. Why did they have twelve children? I spent a lot of time sort of looking into that question for dom father. He was Catholic and he was looking for a distinguished life and he wanted to to stand out in some way and it made him feel good to be a pattern familias and so it pleased him to have so many children. And then Mimi who was like a lot of women in her generation a little frustrated that she couldn't intellectually really achieve dreams. She really gave up her college education and gave up and he sort of independent life to be a mother and she gave up a life of culture and sophistication moving out to the boonies which is Colorado was in the fifties to her as a sophisticated New Yorker and so she liked the being having a certain amount of notoriety and fame and accomplishment of having such a large family but more than that I think she was binging on family in a way because of a lot of the losses she had had in her life. She had lost her father when she was younger and a scandal he sort of became divorced from the family and she never really had a relationship with him. She now was in a marriage where the husband was increasingly absent. He was a career military guy who really created a life of the mind and was not an active parent like a lot of fathers in that time period and so really having so many children gave her a lot of company and I came to appreciate that aspect of it. So six of these kids. Six of the were ultimately diagnosed with schizophrenia. Which as I understand it typically emerges in adolescence or young adulthood it. Correct me if I'm wrong but we're there earlier signed. How did they first find out about the first child to be diagnosed? They suspect something was wrong. Well five of the six of them really followed that pattern. They were all twenty twenty one twenty two in late adolescence. When they had their first really visible psychotic breaks. There was one peter who was earlier he was fourteen he. There was real trauma right before that happened. He watched his father suffers stroke but the they were warning signs for for some of them for Donald. The oldest son he really was a very troubled teenager despite being out early so successful and so popular and he would do things like smashed dishes while washing the dishes out of rage or be overly almost gratuitously abusive to his younger brothers when he was left to take care of them. There are certain ways that he should have demonstrated that he wasn't connecting with the world in a traditional way in that it's almost like there is a barrier between him and others and that was very visible even in his teenage years. But it only devolved into psychosis. Once he was in college he would do things like run into a bonfire during a PEP rally or be cruel to animals. Th they were difficult moments that suddenly were wakeup calls to him. That something was really wrong and he started going to see therapists and his parents started shopping for a medical opinion. That could keep him in college and keep the family away from scandal.

Google joins Hedera Hashgraphs Governing Council
"Man's. Thank you for joining us today for our listeners. Thank you great to be back. It is great to have you back and for our listeners. Who Haven't heard you on our previous podcast. Can you please give them a quick introduction on Yourself Asher So my name is harmon? I'm one of the CO founders of their Hash craft alongside Dr Leeman Baird We've been working together. Lehman I for twenty six years always in deep tack. The we've done reinforcement learning or machine learning research for the Air Force. We talked computer. Science at the Air Force Academy cybersecurity managed massive software program for the Missile Defense Agency and then decided we wanted to become entrepreneurs and this is our third startup we to prior startups in the space of identity and access management and sold one to Fortune. Five hundred the other private equity and Leman wanted to solve a really hard math problems specifically how you can achieve the limits in terms of security in a consensus algorithm distributed consensus algorithm simultaneous to maximizing performance. How you can do both at the same time. And after of hard work he invented the Hash. Graph which is consensus algorithm like blockchain is a consensus algorithm. Has Graph is an alternative approach that has fantastic properties again both in terms of security and performance and we decided to take that tha market and here. We are years later now with their hash graph. Brilliant end in that one answer. You've athlete answered the next two questions. All I can one so fishing deeper interested. Yeah Yeah I mean I think it will be useful is because one of our typical questions is please define what is blockchain and Like we did in the last podcast if you perhaps could have another go at it and at the same time point out the differences between Blockchain and a hash graph. Why Hash crowd is so much more efficient than Blockchain system sure well blockchain as a term refers to two things it refers to a data structure. Which is a chain of blocks of transactions? And it's very serious just like it sounds in the way it's created and it also the the term also refers to a consensus algorithm that enables a community of of participants each of which that holds a local copy of that chain of blocks to come to agreement or consensus on which block to put next on the top of that chain in their by everyone keeps a consistent chain of blocks and often. It's proof of work. You know the use of a really hard cryptographic puzzle into novel ways that makes it possible for the community to to come to consensus on on which blocks you go on top of of the chain. But it's designed to be slow and it. The use of proof of work causes it to be slow and The the fact that there is a single chain that everyone uses also limiting in terms of its architecture hash graph similarly is a term that refers to both a data structure in this case. It's a graph in the mathematical sense. It's a graph that is whose nodes are or verticals are linked together with Hashes gripped graphically in. So it's a data structure in there's also consensus algorithm. That makes it possible for those that have a copy of the Hash graph to calculate how each other how the other nodes in the network would vote on the order of transactions and so they come to to agreement on the order of transactions that get captured in this in this graph because it's a graph rather than a chain all of the transactions. They're flowing into the network can be processed simultaneously. There is no need for proof of work. This process that slows down blockchain to give the community time to come to agreement. There's no need for any of that and so we've basically eliminated the too constraining factors. Proof of work is no is not there. And it's a graph. Instead of a chain and the result of that is fantastic performance in it's got some great theoretical properties specifically it does achieve the limit in terms of security at something called a synchronous. Byzantine fault tolerance. It's the best one can do and in its novel in those ways Brilliant thank you very much for that and we had actually gymnasts or very recently. Come on our show. He's the CEO of core and he was telling us about how he build his colonel virus tracker using Darah Hash craft for exactly the same properties. You just described now. We've had you on this show for about ten ten eleven months ago. What industries and geographies are we seeing the most adoption of our has graph? Well I wouldn't say that there's geography necessarily. That is adopting. Maybe more than than another and the industry's when thinking about the industries. It's it's also it's more like this. It's not really that there is necessarily one industry. That is adopting faster than another but the way I would sort of segment the market or break it down in terms of what is adopting versus. Not Is that. There are a lot of enterprise use cases that are being presented in that. We're you know we're working on with partners and council members that are kind of boring in nature in some ways. What I find interesting is that while most of the market is looking for a really sexy killer. Commercial consumer focused use case. You know everybody's looking for that killer APP. That is primarily focused on building a big consumer focused use case. Our experience is just the opposite. It's for example as a category just audit based applications where you WANNA take some information in get a consensus time stamp on it and use that in various ways maybe their regulatory related. Maybe you need to be able to to just store information improve that it. It was what you claim. It was on a on a given date. There's just a whole broad range of business to business process optimization focused use cases that I think are the ones that are going to end up being the ones that take the whole market Mainstream or result in its mass adoption. And so that's the distinction that I'm seeing. It's it's not a one particular industry or one geography is more focused on B. Two B. process optimization versus consumer focused applications

"Awful piece of like Sandwich with some like Bologna and cheese. I guess the students started pocketing. The cheese slices and when they got into the stadium at the football games at one point in the game. They'd all start Frisbee ing these cheese slaves when they scored and then it became a huge. No no because the cheese was getting into the field not only that but they would get fine the fine you if you nothing game so I imagine like to comment on the Air Force Academy is not too keen on for cheese. Fine fine spare enough. I think we should do a cheese. Slice scale right. So what is it good? I mean that's a weird scale I would say instead of balls. Replace it with cheese. Crash singles are in a package like by sliding scale twenty. There's twenty slices across crass Dale in a discount in a discount package. So there's twenty four twenty four twenty four you sleep are would you brand give 'em year? I the the cheese the craft single cheese score of the week. I'm GONNA go seventeen. She slices seventy Samedan. What can they improve on? T. Slices I was. I kind of agree but the community college aspect of it where I was not impressed by the architecture. Just the the spires were pretty cool architectures. I think that's fair but I mean I love the people there. Everybody was super nice to us They get a ton of points for the the scenery. Where where it's put is location. Location location location. These mountains are amazing to look at so I would say an above average score thousand bucks. Amen brother all right. Let me start by saying I already thank you know. We'll go with. We'll go with kate him by saying thank you so much to the Two gentlemen who took US around and the three gentlemen at the wings of blue who took a big chunk out of their day all took a chunk out of their Friday afternoon on a long weekend to really give us a first class tour. Vip Vip yes because certainly there are areas that you're not allowed to go as a civilian so we showed up here without anyone guiding us. We wouldn't have been able to see any of the things. We saw yesterday points for hospitals so huge points for hospitality. I will say I'm sorry. I walked away very unimpressed and I texted. I texted my dad. I texted my dad. He's like well. You're coming from the place. It's like a fine wine like find down here. Yanni Air Force two buck chuck from Trader Joe's. We thought that was an accurate. I thought I thought we were going to say the. Let me let me say both served their purpose. Two Buck Chuck can be great. I at twenty four slices. I'll give it to and those two because of the two gentlemen from West Point who founded the school. That's out just another integrity pilots to twenty impressed. Just no way. I wish there ain't GonNa Justice. Suspended West Point half roughly yesterday in an army. Hoodie Lady Bird. Chirp you should. You should have some respect for twenty from the pot. God Sharjah's community college. So what are you GONNA do? That's okay I don't mind your two slices because I am giving Air Force Academy fifty slices of cream. You establish the twenty well. I'm sorry that they exceeded the twenty four slices my friend. Now I feel like the stadium. Fifteen minutes. Half of Falcons stadium with cheese with a money gun but fulla cheese and undershooting cheese by score. I feel about it. I'll give a revised score four cheese slices who to for the two founders Eisenhower and the other gentleman from the class of Nineteen fifty-nine West Point who founded the school one she slice for the Cadet Chapel because it is a very impressive looking chapel and four for the mountains in the background because those look nice four slices for the Air Force for me. I loved again. You're right about the hospitality. Everybody was so nice at the end. A couple of students came with both of you guys. Storms and set alot. People were shouting out at us. People were whispering. You guys like I was a little bit behind you guys. I will say I do like the fact that our show. The military podcast has a presence at the service academies and I feel honored to have that honest I loved. That photo was on the wall. That's at least ten slices zones big cheese around there also. I loved that the Dooley's walking on the Marble Hatheway the greetings. I loved how the dorms you could see all the individuality. I love just walking through them and seeing how goofy they were. I loved it wings of blue was I learned about a new sports thing that I had never before it was awesome getting to like roll around on the role as an dangled from the Dang blurs. And I just the whole thing was just awesome. I love that the Air Force Academy gives the students the freedom to be leaders and that I just I'm so I was. We were leaving. I was like I'm so blowing. These are like these are like the next leader is in our country is really cool to see at this level. Like where they where they hatch where these little eggs. I think it's very clear to say well. Okay does a complete recap of the pod. For Score. Eisai's Kate was wagging her tail all over the Air Force Academy yesterday for as far as my score. I'll give it. I'll give it a nineteen cheese out of twenty four. I think that's I could've done. More with architecture. Agree with brand. I wish that they had the same rules for the doors as the sophomores. I think that you should have two years of being just a vicious boot Going through disappointed in the level of cereal that they had whenever the start a petition to get them by series tossing. Cornflakes Life Special K. They had nothing to brighten up your day. It was like your grandma's Cereal selection right Being down in the basement there fire watch i. I didn't appreciate that. I thought that you can't see you. Don't have view over everything you can get away with a lot of stuff up the discipline their overall give it. Nineteen twenty four. The setting is beautiful and things like that but on a surprise addition because Kate and cons just an egregious lack of respect for the cheese scale that was just newly established. I'm GONNA give them both fire watch. Let's go or well work for tonight. They're gonNA have fire watch. Kate will be doing our two and six cosby doing hours. Three and seven watch and then brand new actually are going to be released from fire. Watch for the next week. You didn't have integrity violation respected the scale regret. I can tell you already. I my only regret about my score. Although it was honest is that went eventually we make it to West Point? Kate is going to be blown away but she's not going to admit it. Just to spite me I will never love West behind case. Caitlyn fucking every kimmy. Can we walk into a divide physical campus and Kate would be like? This is wonderful everything. This is a very special thing everything but with Kademi was the highlight of my trip. Also say one more thing closing that has nothing to do with the academy. I bought my first legal marijuana last night. I was GONNA say. Can we talk a little bit of that? Last night took us to eat dinner. It was Valentine's Day and there's seven of US could spit and checklists producers are here to it's Valentine's Day night and seven of us six dudes and me are like going into all these restaurants in Colorado Springs Table for seven electronic dinner hours. So there's nowhere to go. Qasr takes us to this burger place. That's like like nowhere to sit and I was like. What is this clown doing? Clear what are you doing? You take something. I run down the block. I take the initiative. I I do little scouting I find us a spot that has beers burgers and all that good shit but the only space Walking up we're like a like we're blindly trusting. Check our reading for dinner again. This is probably not gonNA end. Well I find. The only table for us is available in the basement. And it's where comedy shows about to start but like a hyper local real bad comedy so many Colorado Springs specific that went over our heads. Add there. It was pretty bad they come and sit down and I was like and they all start talking like quick note. We can't talk about ten minutes. Rockville to talk anymore through this dinner because a wacky comedy show starting sale there. We go so I stayed in the key to one hundred down to the basement and it was like you know. Actually you do like a pretty good job like there's a bar here like it looked really nice upstairs and then are here and then the product and then all of a sudden some Weirdo takes Mike. How y'all doing I'm sorry? Oh pretty rough two COMEDIANS. And the rest. It was all just silently sitting there eating on Valentine's Day but then after that everybody goes back to the hotel. I go out in adventure on my own and I find. I'm in Colorado. I want to buy marijuana. I've never bought illegally before and I wanted to just to do it so I find this place in manatee springs like fifteen minutes from here. You go in you give your. Id then you go through. And all the products are on the wall and the bud tender comes over to you with a little clipboard. And he's like what are you want and I am such a nerd. I was whispering to him like it was still legal. I was like I'm looking for a little bit. Take back at my hotel would like to do. Marijuana one one. They're allowed to please So I was like I'm flying out on Sunday. I don't WanNA fly Dork Can you just I just need to jail? I don't think that's not Dorky. Which I should manage I should make note. Bring people on this trip where like pay so. It's a coup fight. We bring stuff to the game tomorrow. I was like it is a military base. There is very little chance car gets before you on so I would advise against bring drug like out a wonderful Brownie truffle. Three of them and I take them back to the room. You got three. I thought you only got one. I ate a whole one and then I realized I talked to a friend. Who's having been there like? Maybe you should have done that. That's a lot more than usual so I had about fifteen milligrams at once which normally a five will do me on a gummy anyway. I take a shower I settle in. I had bought a bunch of half price. Valentine's candy I settle in on the bed in my PJ's and Colorado at the mountains in the background and I get is a mother a delight. It was the perfect day so maybe I can't go back into the Air Force Academy as much as I wanted but I'm sure glad I got to experience it. What a treat. Yeah there you go. I think that pretty much sums up our trip here in Colorado will be back with the normal episode back to the rounds back to the stuff that you guys love. Hope you enjoyed our review of the Air Force Academy despite Kate and cons egregious lack of integrity at the end. We appreciate you guys listening. Sound the retreat.

"National champions. Yeah they're like the number one team and they have more championships coming up but then not only at the four guys who jump and do this routine then. The student WHO's a cameraman has to jump out behind them and remain. We still traded their way. They're judged so they win. Competitions is on the video that that student takes while they're flying through the air at hundreds of miles an hour. You could basically be doing the Vince. Carter Rim your arm through the rim and nobody gets it so it doesn't matter. The Guy was on cinematography. It's like the opposite of the Oscars were cinematography that. Like nine thousand nine hundred seventeen one. It's kind of an afterthought but now the cinematography is like the most important part. Because if you don't get out you don't have anything. I thought it was so cool because you could tell they were so excited about it and they love it so much excitement about it. Their excitement about it was contagious. As soon as we walked in we get to the airfield. We go into the building where they do all their like flight stuff. They're parachuting. I'm I don't know the terms for it was like a seven part trips yet. So many things to show we get in there and they have water bottles on these little deaths and presentation ready for us where they show us what they do. These three guys. You're awesome originally thought it was just gonNa be like throwing things like kind of looked at the campus. Let's just get down here. We had to get buzzed into a more secure area to the flight line and we got there. They sat us down in this classroom and they were like. Oh we have a couple of videos and at first my initial response was. I don't want to watch a fucking video great great. It showed us what they were all about and from there. They took us into the next room where they show us. And this stuff that as a Marine. I never saw up close packing their parachutes and then there was the room. Where when you're in gym class as a little kid? Those little squares had the wheels on them. I'm like what are the fanciest one fans. They lay on these on their stomachs. And that's how they practice their moves that they do in the air. It was awesome for us to get down and do a little goofing on those and and I think that the coolest part of this that entire experience of going down there was one the fact that they showed us the videos where they're jumping into NFL Games. They're jumping into all star games. They're jumping at air. Shows anywhere like the the Air Force fly team? They're doing all that. Well let me interrupt you. I just WANNA say I didn't know that they are the demonstration team for the entire air force whereas the other cat amies have teams that are specific to the school and then they have enlisted teams. They represent the entire air force. These are all juniors. The whole team was junior in college. They haven't even got their designation yet but they were telling us that some of them have done twenty five hundred jumps three thousand jumps in college to me if you are. If you're trying to get people to go to the Air Force Academy go to an extreme place like San Diego were X. Games the super popular be like. Hey you can come here. And just show him that board because when we walk into their op section. These guys are juniors and college. They're not even in the military yet. They just go in there and if planes are flying they just put their little name on a board and they fly and they could jump. They don't make any day of the week as long as the weather is fine. As long as they said eighteen knots as long as not blowing hard in eighteen knots they go. They could take a little bus down there. Like I'm jumping out of a plane again today. You ask a question though to you said like how does this prepare you? And how is a separate you from the rest of the cadets and talking about going on the flight line talking about going to the scheduling room it really gives them that operational experience the put them ahead of the game? So that when they get out there to the Whatever unit they go to in the air force there are a step ahead and I love lush lessons in leadership. And that's what these people do you have. I love the fact that at some of the academies at the Academy that. I'm learning about that. You have students that are leading the juniors that are coming in so you have juniors and seniors that are leading the freshman and Sophomore and guiding him. Along the way these people on this team they are so good at jumping and freefalling and doing all that shit that they are the legit instructors and the other branches of service even in the army active duty. You don't become an instructor at jump school to your e seven right deport. Juniors in college crazy was almost all of them. It said they'd never jumped before they got here. Kademi legit three years later. Now they're expert and now they're teaching others. It's really impressive. Yeah they tell us. They took us into the hangar where it was almost like you're attached to a parachute they hit this button all on the strings and the harnesses they pull us up like a about four or five feet off the ground up like legitimately butcher house. You get pulled up like a chainsaw mass for sure. Nancy this is how they teach. The students aren't as you're right. Harnesses Air Force. Guys did some sexy but what they do is for these students. They all come in in the summer. Students have the option any student whether they're going to continue jumping in their careers or not. Any student can sign up in the summer to come in and take this week long class where they learn to own day so they start on Monday by day five. They're jumping by themselves. And one of the most important aspects are the most interesting everywhere. Else you start you start with a tandem jump. Are you start with a slack. Line immediately jumped out of the airplane. Your parachute polls automatically these people. Some of the students here. They're very I. Jump Out of the airplane. It's either all by themselves. And they teach them they go through all the different str- they've never had a serious mishap. And doing this. I was in the Marines. We HAVE THE ROLLOVER TRAINING. And the he'll train where they dump you in the pool and flip the dental. You get a lot of duties so they do the same thing with this where that they pulled us up in the harnesses several feet off the ground and then they shake you. They spin yield screaming at you. So you know what to do if shit goes wrong. You know all the backups. And I think that's such a cool way to train and it's just an branch that I didn't have much experience with so it was super cool to see and also just from the pilots to the the access the freedom and the trust that the academy gives these students to take their own initiative to do these things in their free time awesome. Yeah because they said they'd be on that team you have to give up your Saturday's like you don't have Saturdays but you travel around. They bring instructor with you to take your tests and things like that one of the more interesting aspects of the school could use you here air force you automatically think pilots and planes and things like that and I'm sure a great number of the people who actually go to the school wants to be pilots but one of the guys that we had was saying no like He. He doesn't want to be a pilot. He wanted to get involved in cyber warfare. Because that's the future of warfare or he wants to be one of the first officers in space as for super into space force. I would love to do that. You stay here in Colorado Springs. Nee close by you get to be involved in the next step. And I thought about that. Because I've goofed on the space force primarily just goofing but being a part of the establishment of new branches. Service is I know. We have to have on the PODCAST. I recently the Jerry. I E nine of the Space Force just got brought over from the Air Force and same thing with their new common on or whatever. They're going to call them. And I thought you know what for essentially the rest of the rest of the time until the Space Forces shut down or until America shut down this dudes name is going to be known at BOOT camp. I started major space force. Who First Commandant of the Space Force? It's you who's going to be the first you end up if you leave here in the next year and a half you could be one of the first major people in a branch of service stone into the history. Books is certainly a wild concept to think about. Especially if your Undergrad in college and then you look five years down the road what you might be working on in the Branch Service. Certainly a special opportunity. Yeah it was very cool and also very cool just to be on a campus. That has its own. Airfield is unique on on campus. Where they said that you could see anything from raccoons the bears Moose bear on campus wants. He'll big deal but I just. The campus is so beautiful again. We caught it on a beautiful day but the people all all everybody was so nice. It was funny to hear the greetings of the day. It just kind of took me back. I get so delighted by that. Shit now that I'm like. Oh what a treat when they say like. Fear the reaper when they walked by it got planes all around campus at the quad. I feel like they have on each corner and this is a really really big point. About how many planes they have. They said that's the most busy airfield in the air force that they constantly have gliders up. They have different flight missions. Going up because people are learning the very early stages of flight they have all their parachuters that are constantly going. They said in a week one week. They had over the summer whenever they bring in their boot camp classes and they have the training that happens over the summertime that they did twenty five hundred jumps in the lady. Who was there she? She's a civilian. Who helps wrap the parachutes to choose like cow's fucking insane say the effort but yeah she was raised I and how many jumps Oh me I have like ten thousand jobs. Yeah but there was another guy had two hundred fifty thousand job and you're saying that she did like Like twenty five hundred jumps or something but that but compared to the rest of her family who I was very involved right that she doesn't even come close to the amount of jumps at the rest of her family. Had another thing that I loved. That was really unique. And I'd never heard of this either because I had never heard of the jump team thing but I ask them. I'm like so I didn't see any. Tv's in your dorms. Where do you guys watch like football and stuff on Sundays and like most of us go to are are like Oh your host family and I was like what do you mean host family? Every single student there gets paired to an individual family in the community who becomes their host military could be NOCCO be military. Could BE NOT. It could be just a regular and these. A lot of these are civilian families that volunteer to adopt a student throughout their time through their whole four years or five years or whatever and So they were like. Yeah the one guy like minds. An Army lieutenant colonel and the other guys a. Kim. Mine's a civilian family. But on Sundays the families invite them come have dinner come watch the football games. Come do whatever then. You probably need that to return to being like a human. I think that's so awesome. I of course we did. You did yes. I love that economies. Did that and I think that's such a cool way to can. I just say real quick like overall experience officers honest overall experience watching Kate Gush over everything about the Air Force Academy. It's like that mean loved the Guy. Walking with his girlfriend and he's looking back at the other girl like the other has got to be. I cannot wait to bring you to last night and just blow this place out of the. I think that that's one of the special things why kate fits into the podcast so well is because we have. I have this natural instinct. The Shit on things like if it doesn't have a lot of discipline so does cons cons is GonNa Shit on. Anything IS NOT ARMY AT ALL. And then kate comes in as like the total love bear raping with it. You're like Oh what was lacking discipline. It was was dirty. The Air Force does at the same but one their mission.

"Met with one of the Great Barstool viceroys who runs the Barstool. Air Force Academy Account on Barcelona's are on instagram and it was great. I I didn't I didn't know what to expect but I was kind of. I left with a greater appreciation of what the Air Force Academy I fell in love with the Air Force Academy and all those little all I just. I felt like a ball of love by the time I left and I was ready to reenlist. I want to join the new. Kate was going to feel that way because Kate doesn't hate anything people being. That's the way that was going to go down first of all. I love that we're doing platoon room. The way most military platoon rooms are just a bunch of just the dudes and the gals hanging out with an enormous MIMOSA tower on a patio outside the rockies upon us they do on Saturday. It's really cool because the NHL is playing this game on at Falcon Stadium on the campus. There and we actually got to go right by it and then I mean not only do we get the full tour of the campus which is one of the biggest in the nation biggest. Yeah I was not expecting how enormous that campus is going to be the barstool airforce. We don't want to give his name away. I don't know it's no. It was awesome. Yeah he was awesome. He gave us a full tour of and then he took us down to where the airfield is and the wings of blue guys as soon as we went in. They had water bottle sitting out little desks for us so they compress videos Santa Presentation. They took us around the parachute rooms. We got to see people wrapping up the parachutes. So let's take a step back before we get into all that. Yeah so cons. You had been here before. You're the only one of the group that I've been here before. But it's a little bit different when you come from football and I think that the Air Force Academy Army Navy for people who are sports fans whenever you think of the academy. You don't really think of a lot of the military stuff that goes behind it. You really think of the sports teams forever. So that the most forward facing so you know I've been here. I didn't see any of the stuff ever before so yesterday was as much my first time here at the Air Force Academy as it was yours typically for football game you get off the bus. Go to the stadium and I did say credit me. I did say it would be breathtaking and it. I think did not disappoint as we saw overlooking these mountains nature gorgeous out here but it was very interesting to see the rest of the campus and I it. Well I had never been to any of the academy's like Gone With you to west. Point like I've gone up there like we drove into the parking lot to the game. There was no. I didn't go to the dorm. Didn't do any of that stuff going here. Kind of reset my mindscape of where I'm at with the academies as a whole because like I said growing up you would watch air force would watch army navy play football. You kind of just assume that it's a sports thing going in there yesterday when we pulled in one of the first things that was shocking to me as we pulled into the gate is one. There's NPR's guarding the gate security for people checking ID's and Shit like that. And I thought you know this is like a legit military place where these people are going to school to serve our country in every single person that we walked by in their uniform in civilian attire is doing something to support the country right now starting at eighteen going up to twenty two or whatever there when they graduate to me. I think that that's it's a special kind of feel on campus. I've been on many different campuses. Been too many different tours. On campuses it was different. The different feel was very evident. It definitely almost feels you know. Tell me if I'm off base here but it would. It really does feel like a military base. You see everyone walking around in uniforms people greeting just like you would on a military base people saluting just like you would on a military base so it almost doesn't feel like you're at a college right and that's where. I WANNA Kinda get into it because deep down inside the person that I am is still that seth. Nco When I when we pulled up to the gate I said that it felt like a military base. I was disgusted immediately. Bureau Air Force. People were wearing different uniforms. It was warmer than forty five degrees when we got here. It's much colder now. But they are wearing their night stocking caps. There are those out. Different color beanies different color uniforms. And I'm like what's going on. You always had an aneurysm. Let's let's have just a little bit of decorum please. But as soon as we got in there once our airforce guy COCOM barstool airforce guy. He once he started showing US around your guide. I think I think in my mind. Even I'm guilty of this. I look at the service academies and I'm like these are like the perfect like robot everyone is perfect and they go there and they're like the top of the but it's not so cookie cutter. There was so much personality in everybody we met and they're allowed to still express that they're in my electoral while but like it is. I don't know I think people in their minds most picture it a certain way like like I don't know so black and white but there's a lot of color in this academy. There's so many interesting people. I loved going through the dorms and seeing all the murals just everywhere and learning about the traditions that they have well. Let's just talk about that for a little bit. So the academy the Air Force Academy. It's just like this at Navy and Army as well. Is there broken out? Just like the same military structure structure as if you were in a unit out in the regular military so each unit has unit mascot and they decorate their area in the theme of that Mascot. The murals that you're talking about also oldest dorm room. The the the chairs in that dorm room the air force is using chairs from nineteen call. The Jeffers is sitting in chairs from nineteen. Eighty two in their barracks. Reminding you to yeah. Older is still the old S carpeting. There's a random sync with no mere for no reason in their room. I loved walking through and seeing everybody's set up especially like all the army quotes that were placed among the over. Ormc WE COME to the Air Force Academy and we're walked and that's not hyperbole. He definitely could not get over it. He was talking about the army every five minutes. I couldn't everybody here and you're getting a lot of chirps. Also that was fine. I expected that but everywhere we turn there was a reminder of the army there was quote by General Patton General. Patton never served that they in the air force there was how we should also mention. There was David. Page views Quote on one of the wall. Swamping the Pink Panther wearing eighty second airborne uniform. I really just was taken aback a little bit that. I thought that they would have a little more uniqueness to them not so much of the army culture. They've only been around since nineteen sixty. Do you have plenty of people? Seems like they're the only branch confident. Enough and riles. That they can celebrate. Never seen such a little dick constantly worried about it. The army's always worried. About what other branches thinking. What are they doing? Oh look it up there looking at US. Who gives a fuck campus saw? I know you'll agree with me. I could not get over. How dirty okay. Okay was so old. They're not letting carpet. That's fifty years old K. Got It you can't do anything about that. The clutter that was it was discussed. It was surprising to me. Because you think you hear like the military disciplined and things like that you know I don't I actually don't have a huge problem with it now like if you'd asked me back in the day Oh. I had a huge problem without dirty. Those rooms were and how they are but they are college students. They are kind of going on like a three day weekend so let them have it. But when you have an idea of what a military college a Military Academy you think that everything is lined up. You have everything covered in a line. Everything has its place in every place has. Its home all that Shit. That wasn't the case they give them a little bit more freedom. I don't think it's that way just based on other videos we've seen from West Point and from the Naval Academy this essay. But you still get too personal. It's not like your all robots what I liked about. It was that you can see like. Oh yeah these are. College students to people are going onto tree. They're also college students and this is their college experience so get their dicks you guys but I did love to some aspects of the military disciplined that was the youthful to my staff in north. One of those was very evident. Whenever you're walking through so they're very first years They call them. What Duly Longtime Dooley's played by plane by by wings all in their freshman or call Dooley's and the Dooley's at the Air Force Academy from what we understand. Have by far the strictest of all the rules that are there so everybody kind of gets looser as you go up in rank and and things like that but whenever you get there. You're duly you're going somewhere. Hello you're runnin. Hello you're fucking running. Love that Shit out whenever they told me like. Oh yeah the Dooley's a first year until they graduate and they finish their last exam if they're outside and they're walking on the marble they're running. It might not be a full blown sprint. But you'd better shuffled your flesh photo. You're way off and I love that stuff. They would come by us because it was it was me cake. Cons brand and the two guys that were bringing us oh was one one woman and you had other men that were going there so they would say good afternoon. Ma'am Good Afternoon Gentlemen. And they would continue on with their shut. Everything ask only the Dooley's that had to do it and I love that because deep down in your heart you know. I know from being a former. Pse FORMER LANCE CORPORAL. When you have to give everybody the greeting of the day you do it behind gritted teeth fucking hate doing and you see a bigger group. And you're like God damn it mixed genders here and good afternoon. Ma'am good afternoon. Gentlemen by your leave. Good Morning Sir. You have to say all this again. That's just like the regular military once also loved that they have these huge parade grounds. I mean it's so impressive when you see these massive massive prayed grounds with the mountains in the background and they're all this beautiful slate and then the slate is crisscrossed by like maybe every twenty feet apart these marble stones that lead pathways and the Dooley's also are supposed to stay on the market. Like you know they say. Don't step on the cracks. They can't leave the Craig. They have to stay on the marble as they walk across campus. There's a couple of other things I just really really loved to point out. Though you guys say whatever you want when you walked up and again. The schools built in the fifties you know nineteen fifties architecture. It kind of looked like a community college. It is from the from the visitor's parking lot. It's not impressive. I think that changes once you get down into the Quad I think the starkness of it and the simplicity of it is goes to show. You grew your first background but your secondhand actually go down there. You're like this is pretty substantial so then after we kinda got the cursory view of what the campus look like then. We stepped over and got kind of the meat and potatoes of where we were. What what our experiences was that day. Which is when we went and met with the wings of blue who is the air force parachute team and that really set apart. How different it is from most collegiate experiences. You guys agree. That part blew me away. It's like I was explaining to people last night. He gets like synchronized swimming. But in the air after you jump out of a plane and it's just I never knew that was the thing that existed and they were like. Yeah so like say four guys. Jump out of a plane. They almost do like a dance routine in the air synchronize routine and they're judged on it. It's not almost like it is. It is one hundred and thirty miles an hour. They're falling out of the airplane. They're grabbing hold each other and doing with Jeff complicated synchronized their team has won. Twenty three.

When it's not air venture be sure to check our social media on our website and our online newsletter for for future dates for this for the series so with that of course I guess I'll I'll kick it over to you to kind of ask what we usually ask for the introductory questions for our I guess one of my favorite questions ask because everybody has a story What I made you WanNa fly well for me? As a child growing up I was the child of a World War Two veteran. My Dad worked for a company in which there was is a retired Military Aviator who was the president and CEO of textile the organization being from the South and he was a big collector of military aircraft. And he he shared this collection with the people who work for his organization and so we as kids. We just climb all over a variety of military aircraft and been a little bit older than these other guys I Remember Korea Had Our tendency to visit the local airport just watching it but what the moment that really struck me was when I had my first Ryder t thirty. The three in the backseat. My time is that My choices were go through. ROTC in college or not go to college and be a grunt in the United States are going to be at Phnom and frankly when I went to field training between my sophomore junior year and had that first orientated applied on ever get get visit. Myrtle Beach Airforce Base took off on their forget we broke ground on a cloudy sky and that contrast to the ocean and the white sand. And I said Gosh. Gosh this is what I WANNA do. That was that moment that really struck out for me and I had a great again in front seat and that was that was a magic moment for me. That's awesome How about you Colonel Jill? We're like to point to say that my father who was in the military inspired mutation Taeb restrained to be AAA battery commander so that didn't feel bad but my mother was a navy wave during World War Two and it was a linked trainer operator and she brought with her the navy how to fly manuals and all the things that I just devoured in junior high and high school. I lived on a ranch in central Florida that was in the running line for the navy. Pine Castle air to ground range or GonNa rage and so I could be down there shoveling horse apples or whatever it is that at a ranch boy does it'd be threes and fours and four eight. Five eight vigilantes roaring overhead on looking up and Goya looks like a lot more fun than down here and I did a little investigation allegation and found out that the navy guys running aircraft carrier. And there's no women on carrier knows no beer on the carrier and that that launched launched me on a on a career near fourth. Although my dad wasn't an aviator was on the Coast Guard World War Two timeframe when I was young very young he took me to an EA gathering back when it was in Rockford. And I got my first flight in a gypsy. Moth Open Air. I don't remember eight or nine years old in it's kind of set a spark. My father was always aviation suzy's and then as I was getting into high school I just thought the flight fighters be like the greatest job in the world early in high school. Had I had a cousin that went to the Air Force Academy and I got to thinking I was also the oldest of seven children in the finances of going to college made made a huge difference if the government was sending me to college and I got a chance to be a pilot. Boy that'd be cool owes able to get into the Air Force Academy train their want to go to pilot training and it was just kind of always been my goal to head in that direction. I didn't necessarily have specific specific path but worked out and there. We have how that's awesome. That's really cool. You have an EA if you're early flight and that's pretty wild. It's grown a bit Rockford. We noticed it so we just heard your first experience in an airplane What about the what? What did you was the first plane? Overflowing well following pilot training. No now you just mean like as a kid but as I said in the t thirty three that's an awesome. I fly has an awesome and of course it there in that timeframe There was a program in. ROTC for juniors and sophomores to Get their pilot. License called the flight instruction program and I went through that and of course into the air force and on the pilot training but my first airplane eh operation and was the F. One hundred which kind of an interesting about that as a kid growing up I mentioned that my first flight and the t thirty three was There'll beach airforce. Base happened to be two three fifty four th wing air flying f one hundred's so as a kid. I got a lot of Hans and I never thought that I'd be one of those guys flying the F. One hundred it's an amazing airplane. Yes it is about you. My first light was in a was in a Tri Pacer and my I had a I had a friend in elementary school was interested in aviation as well and my brother and we saved our money and we parents take us out your fort and got a little introductory flight And the next one after that was on my way to the Air Force Academy Outta me. My Kademi lays officer now. This central Florida had a steer men and he put me up in the German to go flying and that open cockpit Pitt. Experience was quite a thrill that is pretty cool at the step up from a Tri Pacer. Quite a bit so we'll talk a little bit about how you guys transitioned into the F. One seventeen program And currently I guess we should start with you since you you were there for pretty early on to keep household about that yes and the late nineteen eighties. I received my backup of it in late late. Nineteen Eighty I was just finishing the eight and fighter weapons school and being reassigned their analysis to be the assistant operations officer in that unit. Something I'd really want to do for some time really looking forward to it but no sooner had I arrived in the squadron and I got a phone phone call from the gentleman I had never met before. who asked me if he could meet me a specific building a specific perfect room at a specific time in several weeks ahead? This guy's name was Bernard Bob Jackson Quite a character in his own right in On the predetermined date and time I arrived air knocks on the door. Door opens about an inch. And I hear this voice is. Are you whittling. I said Yes sir they let me see your ID card slip it through the door. Who knows what's going on the other side he's probably chuckling or whatever but invites me in and we have about three five minute interview that Everything he offered was great but not assured I took him up on his offer. And that's how I joined the unit and made a commitment At that time and two or three months later one of the first in whoops called the initial padres to show up. We didn't have a permanent place to stay. We had a couple of Single wide trailer on on the flight. Line at Nellis Air Force Base and I spent about four and a half five years With the unit I watched it go from obtaining are I eighty seven to become an seven unit the with the as our cover story story Doing Avionics testing and of course I was For whatever reason nothing unique about me because because there were several very talented and capable people in part of that initial Kadre but Colonel Jackson for whatever reason he did elected to Have may be the first operational pilot now. I've had two theories about that. The first is I was expendable. Yeah and so. If it didn't work out nothing was lost but and as it turned out That that was a very unique experience and then of course Being the first operational pilot help check out the next guy and so on and so forth and eventually we received airplanes wanted to time and we checked out people want at the time and by while the intent was by nineteen eighty two to have limited operational operational capability. We simply just didn't the airplanes fast enough because some challenges that they had faced in that process and well how to build it exactly and each airplane was very unique in his own right. What those first few coming up? Because there's a lessons learned very quickly. Adjustments were being made in the Production and June of eighty five rolled around I had basically Evolved into being the Training Squadron Commander and I left the unit about four or five assignments later in August of nineteen ninety. I showed back up on the doorstep So we we had come all the way back to band at one fifty and being the first operational pilot. That's the how we came about my bandit number

And I love you to we've that together with this notion of how we wanna set up our own feedback loops because obviously ever liked tight feedback loop, and I think, in many ways getting tighter feedback loops and life would improve our lives. But in some ways, it's actually really bad. So talk about the cult of the head start in the notion of feedback. Loops in the more general sense. The cult of the head start was this. I started to see. In different domains that the easiest way to give someone in advantage is to teach things they're usually called closed skills, so things that are technique that you can teach very quickly and see an advantage, but those fade out, or they appear to fade out because everybody actually learns them, and then the people that were learning these sort of broader frameworks for skills will surpass those people. But tell me not to if you don't want, but US before what the most surprising study was in the sports, gene. And this question, just prompted what the most surprising study was for range? Okay. The study at the air force academy in the fourth chapter, where I apologies to Danny conman title learning fast and slow. So this study at the air force. The air force has incredible setup for a kind of natural experiment. That you'd never be able to replicate. No lab really. And they wanted to study the impact of teacher quality on math learning among their cadets and every year. A freshman class comes in the air force, and they have to take like three levels of math calculus. One calculus two, and then they go onto more advanced. Man and every year, it's like twenty kids are in in each calculus. One section. They are randomized to professors, and the test scores, and all that end up. Everything the skills, they came in with our randomized across the classes after that class, they all get the same exact test, the tests are graded by groups that just do like a certain questions on no teacher can favor their students. The test is like the whole grade. And then those kids are rerun demised to calculus to same thing..
