Kangaroos with Puppy Dog Eyes
"Let's say you have a dog or maybe you're watching a friends pop. You have a treat in your hand so you have the dogs attention. Then you put the treat into a dog you proof box and let them figure it out. What do you think the dog will do. If you're a dog owner you probably know spike or spot or miss fluffy will probably try in vain for a while but soon they'll probably turn back to you with those puppy dog eyes with a look. That's both hurt. Why would you make it so hard for them. After all and pleading that it turns out is a sophisticated. Cognitive phenomenon called referential. Communication is an attempt to shift the humans attention towards the problem and dogs as it turns out. Aren't the only species who can do this in two thousand and three on garin biologist named adam mcclatchy tested this ability with an experiment. He gathered handful of dogs. And a group of wolves. Both groups of canine had been hand-raised from birth by people in much the same way. He put a piece of food inside of that doggy proof. Box the wolves kept trying and failing to get the food inside and we already know what the dogs did alan. Miguel ag- animal cognition researcher at the city. University of hong kong wanted to push this test further. He wanted to move beyond dogs versus wolves. The discussions of those papers in the discussion depresses oil about them. Being domesticated closely by humans. He thinks that there's more to the story. What if animals don't to be domesticated but instead simply need to be socialized. Maybe it's not. The dogs are especially social but instead that wolves are just especially stubborn so we came along in two thousand sixteen. I did the goats and showed that. Actually it's probably general domestic animal thing. It's nothing do being domesticated as a companion animal in a new study. He's gone even further enter. Kangaroos and kangaroos generally haven't been used for any of that sort of research. I think most people emailed them and suggested. Oh you know this problem solving tests with australia. Kangaroos thought i kind of mad or some really eccentric scientist mc elegant rounded up a group of marsupials from three different zoos and sanctuaries in all he tested three different species kangaroo island kangaroos eastern grey kangaroos and red kangaroos of eleven animals tested. Ten of -em past turning their gaze back to mcculloch yet and of the ten who turned to look at him nine. Kangaroos actively shifted their gaze between the box in the human the results were published in december in the journal. Biology letters this domestication hypothesis for all these behaviors. We've over relied on it. And i'm not saying that you know. Kangaroos are just as good as dogs. Are anything like that. But i'm saying the cognitive capabilities of wild animals that are habituated to humans have probably been underestimated. Mcgilla elegant says that it's not enough to study domesticates in their wild counterparts like dogs and wolves. That's why he decided to try kangaroos which were never domesticated. You can't use the effects of domestication on animal. behavior animal ignition by only studying domesticated. I mean it sounds pretty simple but it's important so you need to see what the other ones are capable of doing. If they're used to being around people michaela gets says that the pouched marsupials offer up a whole new set of possibilities for understanding the evolution of social cognition and he's now turned his attention to yet another unexpected species the asian water buffalo.
Don't You Want Somebody to Take Care of You?
"Okay so you just got a couple of questions. We're going to get into that okay. Yeah totally i'm nora. Mcnerney in this is terrible. Thanks for asking. And that was gina and when we get into it. We're going to be continuing the conversation that we've been having about care with gina story is a story about a lot of complicated emotions about the long tail effects of being thrust into a caregiver role when you're still a person who needs a lot of care a child but this complicated story starts in a really simple place when genus parents met and fell in love They were summer fling. Was like maybe nineteen sixty nine thousand. Nine hundred seventy vietnam war was going on. I think there was like a lot of looking for a better life. Like you know like wanting something good and they dated over that summer and then they were married by like the day after christmas that same year. So my sense is that they were kind of idealists like they were looking for some sort of happily ever after and for awhile. Genus parents found it. My mom was a homemaker and my dad was kind of a rising star in the computer science world. he was an academic. He was teaching at georgia tech in atlanta. Which is where. I grew up and so early. Memories are that you know my mom cooked and was crafty and volunteered with the pta. My mom really loved to so she loved to bake. She's a beautiful woman and my dad was very intellectual. Like i remember him reading like not totally age appropriate books to read allison wonderland to me at an age when i didn't fully understand what's going on there so much in that book didn't understand but i loved the fact that he would read that to me and he would sit down and explain to me. How telephones work and he liked teaching me about prime numbers and stuff like that at a very young age i think he just really enjoyed sharing that aspect of himself with me. He liked kind of dissecting things and thinking about things and asking questions. And that's something that. I've carried with me into adulthood. He kind of taught me how to dig deep and think about stuff that you might not otherwise. Think about gina was the second of three children. Her older brother is named allan just like a sweet sweet kid like he loved playing with matchbox cars and he would line them up. We would watch movies a lot together like he loved watching lassie and old yeller and stuff like that. If it involves a kid in a dog he could watch a movie. Five times in a row of my mom lead up every single time. He said he would laugh at every part like it was the first time you ever heard it or ever saw it and same with music. You know at some point in our childhood somebody gave them like one of those yellow sony walkman and a bunch of tapes and he would walk around the house with like headphones on and plane his tapes and singing and his very loud very slurred speech. That was like the happiest. Alan loved country music bing crosby. He loved christmas music all year round. It was just gina in allen until their little brother andrew was born. Andrew came along and i felt like almost like he was my baby from the beginning and like i think i recognized from a young age that he was like my ally and my playmates. He was you know a playmate that i interacted with. He was very imaginative. And we do the things that kids do where you like lineup. All your stuffed animals and teach them school or we would do these toy. Parades down the hallway and like throughout the whole house. Where readers just like lineup. Every single toy we own and then just like march like it was a production. The genus relationships with andrew and with allen were different because allen andrew with different. I was aware from a very very young age that i do things at allen. Couldn't i was three years younger than him. He and i kind of learned how to walk around the same time he could talk but his speech was really slurred. And so i knew from a very young age that like a lot of people didn't understand what he was saying. But i did like i kind of interpreted for him a lot especially in public so i think there was an awareness on that level lake. He's older than me. But i think i always felt older than him like. I knew that he had a lot of medical stuff. That was very mysterious. He had some seizures and would have to be rushed to the hospital so i i was very aware that like he needed a lot and there was something wrong.
The inside story of the Iranian attack on Al Asad Airbase
"General Frank Mackenzie, commander of US forces in the Middle East, monitored the attack from his headquarters in Tampa, Florida. Walking into this small room off his main operation Center, where he could talk directly to the only two people above him in the chain of command. They bring in secretary defense and a little bit later they brought in the president to this conversation. We're listening to the reports of the missiles flying. You ever been on one like this? I've never been on one like this, where real missiles being fired at our forces and where I thought the risks were so high Iranian attack on al Assad was in retaliation for a stunning US operation. President Trump ordered six nights earlier, a drone strike, which killed Iran's most powerful general Qassim Suleimani. The blood of many Americans is on the hands of the same salamoni. He was this close to an indispensable man as you could find inside Iran, where he went violin. And death followed during the American occupation of Iraq. Sulamani had orchestrated attacks which killed more than 600. U. S troops and, according to Mackenzie, He was planning to do it again. We saw intelligence reports where the same cell Amani was moving various attacks, dreams forward against our forces in Iraq against our embassy and against other bases there. With the imminent perhaps an hour's, perhaps in days, probably not weeks. Until then, the USAID shied away from going after Sulamani for fear, killing such a high ranking government official. Would only provoke Mauritanian attacks. I never take killing anyone is a zone easy decision, but I think the risk of not acting in this case Outweigh the risks of acting So yes, I was good with the decision on January 3rd of last year on airport security camera recorded. Sulamani is arrival in Baghdad on a commercial flight from Damascus. Kensi was watching from a different angle. You have the drones overhead. Do you see him Healthy? Yes, yes. As soon Money's entourage pulled away from the plane. McKenzie gave the kill order to the commander controlling the drones. And then I said, Take your shot when you got it. Missile slammed into both vehicles simultaneously. There's no backslapping. There's no cheering because now I have to prepare to deal with the consequences. The action, General Mackenzie was sure Iran would retaliate, but he didn't know how and neither for awhile. Did the Iranians. I believe they went into a period of this organization because they had lost the officer. Who really spoke up and shaped everything up and told them what they were gonna do. So he's kind of ominous silence. It was a very ominous silence. And what was the first sign that Iran might really be thinking of her? Ballistic missile attack, they began to move their ballistic missiles. The attack was just hours away. When major Alan Johnson got the word. Iran's most powerful weapons were aiming for al Assad. My intelligence officer pulled me aside and Basically said, Sir, I've got some bad news for you. What's up? We have information that Iran is fueling 27 medium range ballistic missiles in their intention is the level this base And we may not survive. This was a completely different threat. Lieutenant Colonel Jim Garland commanded an army battalion at Al Asad. Sprawling air base about 120 miles west of Baghdad, where the U. S operated scores of helicopters, drones and other aircraft. Did the base have any defense against ballistic missiles now, sir? It was such a unprecedented threat. I don't think it was ever calculated. S o the capability to, uh, prevent a ballistic missile attack. It wasn't there. Did you have a plan for what to do? Way came up with the plan. The only real defense against ballistic missile attack is to get out of harm's way.

And in the meantime Alan what have you been up to recently? Well just in time for the last episode. I have removed the audio noise that was plaguing my system and also doubled my speed on my desktop PC. Wow. Is this the same fix for both? It was it was one fix that did both things. It turns out I use ethernet over power adapters tp-link devices off because my office is like the complete opposite end of the house from the internet connection and to get it here. I didn't run ethernet. I just use ethernet over power and I've been using it for years and there's Bob Background like crackle for a while and I couldn't pinpoint what it was and I thought it was cables crossing over or something like that. And also the internet in this room is 50% of what it should be like a nice day for like hundred hundred and ten Meg or something. I get 4850 something like that. And when the kids are out one day, I unplugged loads of things and Shuffle things around and it turned out it was off the ethernet over power device, which has a through socket was plugged into a four-way thing and I moved it. So it's plugged directly in the wall magically met audio problem goes away a my internet is now twice as fast. That's all I did. The only thing that changed was me moving the ethernet over power socket to be plugged directly in the wall. Suddenly everything faster and better well great. Well, I'm glad you got that done in time for one recording. Sorry joke not in or even up to I have been playing Hotshot racing with my dog. Ends on that their Internet. It's a good game. This is a driving game. I imagine it is. I think I may have mentioned it earlier in the year, but it's having a bit of a Revival at the motion. It's a low poly retro arcade style racer available on Steam and you can play it under proton. And now now I'm not working for you know, the Christmas break. I was looking to have some fun. So I've started hosting some Linux game nights and this is the game. We're playing at the moment doing an excellent Romper around the tracks and can people watch you playing even if they don't want to play they can I've started a second YouTube channel just for playing games on Linux and it's all streamed there and everyone loves playing along with me has a voice in the room and it's a real group effort. And in fact, some of the others are streaming as well. So you can even own overlay multiple angles of the game being played at home. I'm brilliant and
Audio Branding and Marketing with Audioburst founder and CEO Amir Hirsh
"How can brands or marketers. Get involved in audio in your mind. You're at the forefront of where audio is going some curious where you think people should be getting involved so i like to think about it as Two types of activities. They should be included in thinking about it. As let's bit in in order and on audio okay. When i thought about in all your means they should start placing their message their brand their marketing activity within the audio dimension itself. So either if they can do it. Then i recommend produce their own podcast upload their own content so much like they've invested in creating blogs before in order to deliver the directly their message with no intermittent intimate in in between they should create a podcast where they can add their own voice in story through it. Because people would like to listen about your company if they're going to start in investigating into your product and they wanna hear about it and as audio breasts and others are gonna make all your more accessible and searchable you want your clips in your story to be heard than to be included so within the audio by producing it or by exactly like what we're doing right now being interviewed by making sure that your product is exposed to podcasters lead casses review. Your product. understand what you're doing interview you place your message within the stream of audio because it's going to be extremely popular and that's where people are going to learn and get information and would like to hear about your brand okay. That's the first level that they can do. The second is what i consider the on audio as audio becomes more and more popular more emotional people become more connected with it. It creates an opportunity to sponsor all your to support audio so and they don't have to appear in the content itself but they can place their brand around it in sponsoring playlist sponsoring podcast. Creating an audio event within their of third party of curation of content is relevant to their vertical and the topic but brought to you by this or that. So let's say that i'm an. We'll go back to the automotive industry. Let's emma brandon wants to emphasize car safety and safe a driving than perhaps i created this audio event of curation with podcasters around it or existing onto the we've selected and connected and we recommend our customers to listen to that kind of content all brought to you by my brand as an example saying goes for the running shoes same. We'll go for any other brand marketer that wants to create that brand affinity between their brand and the topic and the content that they're potential customers care about. That's the on audio marketing. So you don't have to produce it an appearance in it you can just curate. It and you can create stories around the be the content. Dj of your customer. That's the kind of refill and marketing activities can do around audio and it reminds me. I've said this before on the show but it reminds me of Frankly like going way back in time when there were only three or four. Tv stations and the advertisers or sponsors were more intimately involved in not just being on on air so to speak sponsoring or or helping but they many times helped to craft the program itself and the being in the show so to speak or in audio and there's elements to that i think based on what you described it. I mean it's just a much bigger ecosystem to play in now and so many more different applications to do it. But i think you nailed it in terms of like just being in the program in the audio or surrounding yourself around or on the audio. It's kind of an interesting way to break it apart.
Audio finds its power in its ability to follow you around throughout the day without interrupting your activities
"I mean some amazing amazing platform that you're building from online news sites to encourage experiences to while on the go to your point. I mean i think that is the power of audio is that it can pretty much follow you throughout your day without interrupting. Whatever it is that you need to be doing at that moment in time or where you need to be going. that's amazing. It's an accompanying experience. Even casual mobile games. So right now. They're silent in most cases. Well you know were playing and spending some time on the fuel free minutes of ours. I can listen to gossip or interesting trivia facts. While i play you know my lil an undisclosed. They'll games i'm relaxing with.
The Power of Audio with Audioburst founder and CEO Amir Hirsh
"Historically it's becoming more and more accessible but how can audio be more accessible so when we started audio your we analyzed. How come we as a personal fans of podcasts in your content and radio content as well thought that there's always all the answer that you want and all the content exists out there. How come he doesn't pick up on the internet. The hukou doesn't pick up on the new digital world and age the same as text and video n. there were several challenges that we've analyze and found them that what we've built around in order to solve his that audio in many aspects is not very easily discoverable. So you can't search audio. You can't came on your. You can't share argue a lot of the times. The audio content was one hour or forty. Five minute long of podcasts or radio show now is very accessible. You can't search for it. You can't look for specific clip or area that you'd like to listen instead of listening fully immersed into the whole show and you couldn't share any of it so what we've done in audio versus that we've built an ai engine that listens to vast amount of audio content. Have it be podcasts. Radio online videos that pretty much became slide with the audio content behind it and in an essence does three actions wanted analyzed it and cut it into short clips so we were able to take a long form show and cut it into the individual items that conversations the topics the questions that happened within it allowing users to get into specific point than sample what they're looking for the second is that we've index each clip that the we call burst we've added as much as possible transcriptions keywords entities source time a mood analytics number of speakers. There's plenty of dimensions that we've added to each clip like that so we'll be able to find it afterwards when the user can't and then we've added that delivery mechanism. Api layer and then on top of it as decay an imitable player for the web and libraries for and android to allow the different products and the different places where users are today to add an embiid audio layer to their products the main essence and misses that we wanted to do an auburn while making acceptable is making it extremely easy for products to add an audio layer and our dimension to what they're offering to their clients and to their users instead of asking the uses to come look for audio summer to come download an app or look for it online. We said no. I want the to be able to listen to their podcasts. Within the running up on the websites to be able to add the audio interview of the person mentioned within the article in the article itself and available that way. We're working on integration with podcasts. Search and audio playlist to be added to automotive to oem's and tier one. So when we drive. I want the or your car to greet you. Good morning. Allen here's the Traffic report and here's what happened in the news. And by the way. I know that you asked about tesla stock last night. Now i'm sorry a couple of days ago here is a couple of Analyst talking about it. That i've found over the night while you were sleeping. That kind of mechanism makes audio is easy and accessible to users wherever they are whenever they are just a touch away or command away or click away and that's the mission that we've done in august and it's quite the future picture. Frankly it's happening today. Alan i gotta tell you so. No no i know. I know it's it's amazing to me. I know you've you've been spending a ton of time building the tech in the meta data structures to make that possible and you talked about a few of the potential customers or ecosystem that you operate in like the news aggregate or the even the automotive industry. Can you go a little deeper for me. Like tell me a little bit more about like where audio burst operates today and like what are some additional use cases where you see your technology fitting in happy to one you remember. We started this conversation with you calling me crazy so i still need to convince you whether you know or futuristic or it's happening today. We were lucky enough happy enough to have multiple great partners invest in our company and work with us hand in hand to build this future. Earth with juristic thing. So you'll see among our investors for example samsung and hyundai and denso giants from the mobile and consumer electronics through the automotive and media world. That have joined with us in this effort to make this happen and that was an incredible. That is an incredible journey for us to do. Other birds today is live and via our player in. Api's and as decays in our have added all your to mobile apps such as flipboard the news break to websites of variety sizes of styles of and topics verticals with our impeccable player. And i think on the automotive that you said sounds of fridge ristic we have a few not live yet but few sees that we're working with leading oem's fortunately i'm not allowed to disclose on unique playlists to be added to their infotainment system to search engine behind voice activation. So you'll say hey name your Favorite car what's the latest on president by then or what's going on with the dallas cowboys or howled the markets of behaving today and you know the for time-to-time some of the existing voice activation will give you a robotic answer. A some clipper what auburn is offering them to dan. The what we're doing with them is the will provide you with the latest clip from professionally produced provider of the content from experts in the media world from the analysts from the best radio stations. Or podcast that will really give you an answer that you'll enjoy listening to that. You can stay focused on that you can listen for you know a few minutes of enrichment content while you dr. So and companies that were working with that are adding the sinking ability into smart earbuds. So you can do it in your car when you jog on when you run either from your app from earbud itself. These are exciting times. I can tell you. In the beginning. It took companies and customers of our some time to adapt and understand the message that we've done but twenty twenty really opened their eyes and saw how much the uses are dying to get talk content and podcasts and user errors. The case every brandon every company out there all of a sudden can become an audio media world and audio media provider. Because they don't need to be worrying about that layer they just add this became we handle everything for them and delight their users. It's pretty. I mean it's amazing. What the infrastructure that you've built behind the scenes if you will of these different applications at frankly proliferation i guess of where it could show up. I mean some amazing amazing platform that you're building from online news sites to encourage experiences to while on the go to your point. I mean i think that is the power of audio is that it can pretty much follow you throughout your day without interrupting. Whatever it is that you need to be doing at that moment in time or where you need to be going. that's amazing.

"That song still in there. It belongs okay. Good question good question. Good question john and samantha. Basic answer is no ended. The day the best song wins and it will win and insist direct. There was a song that we we changed. Radically between london and new york and i was happier with what we had london. The director was happier with what we had new york but it worked was fine so at the end of the day. I just go. Okay now. I do have saw try. Your boy was cut from a latte.

How Poor Food Choices Lead to Depression
"I'm caroline hudson and a registered and licensed citation for many years and over these years. I have seen firsthand the impact. The foods people eat have on their body and of course their brain health so last week car us started the show with a great quote from dr. Alan are gay. He's the author of nutritional medicine. That's really a science nutrition reference book for physicians and healthcare practitioners. Here's what he wrote. And i quote big macs lead to zantac which leads to prozac so if you jin tier that quote last week i'm going to go into a little more detail about that. So eating big macs making poor food choices. Time and time again often leads to digestive problems gastrointestinal problems which will most likely require some kind of digestive medication. such as an tech or prior lasek. Nexium practice said. Tom's you know we all hear about those right. So taking any of these digestive medications often leads to an inability to break down or digest your protein and that's going to result in a deficiency of amino acids and you need amino acids to actually make neuro transmitters. Those are those you know. Feel good brain transmitters especially serotonin and deficiency of serotonin can actually bring on depression and may eventually bring about a need for an anti depressant. Prescription like prozac. So being a dietitian again for over years. I've had the opportunity to observe the impact that process food diet has had on the decline of people's health both the health of their body and the health of their brain
Filling the archives with stories from Black Silicon Valley
"We talked last week about how the stories of lack inventors were literally left out of the history books. Documenting the early internet now. A story about preserving that history in late twenty nineteen archivists from stanford university met in fremont california with over a dozen black engineers and entrepreneurs who had been working in the tech industry for decades. One of them was. Danny allan also been first engineering. Professors say some people in this class. That don't belong five of us thirty so actually wound up hating engineering. While to become an engineer. Alan worked as an engineer for bank of america and the electric power research institute in palo alto. He's now the vice president of global diversity and inclusion at sap labs stanford was interviewing allan and others for a new archive dedicated to the history of black people. Working in silicon valley henry low would helped build stanford silicon valley archive as a curator at the university. And he had realize that the stories of allen and others at that meeting were missing from the university's records to realize that there are substantial communities successful people who've not been fully represented. The archive is a. You know a bit of a shock. It's kind of sad disappointing. That that were at this position. But you very grateful to be be in a situation where i can try to respond to it though it had been inspired by kathy cotton. A longtime silicon valley recruiter turned archivist. She saw that. No one was telling the stories of the many black engineers and software developers. She knew were important to. The tech. industry's success. So
Are Donovan Mitchell and the Jazz True Contenders?
"So tony. Let's start this story during last year's playoffs done mitchell and jamal murray have this epic battle in the nba. Bubble shot clock down to four. Mitchell has millsaps. Automobile three took three and returns the staredown ton of matchel clutch. Three pointer for the jazz. Eventually mitchell jazz fall in dramatic fashion a game. Seven two seconds ago for the winter. Tell us about donovan. Mitchell after that loss of known donovan. Pretty well in the four years. He's been with the johnson. I don't think i've seen him data emotional in the post game. There's so many things. I just feel like we could did and we didn't and i think that's just where the hurt really comes because quite frankly i don't i give them credit but i feel like we kind of eased off the gas. You have to remember the jazz at a be in the second half of game five which was supposed to be oppose out game for them to do more and this won't happen again is extremely down and he just basically said. We're not losing in the first round of the playoffs anymore. This ain't the end. This ain't this is just the beginning man. This is just the just the beginning. And i'm ready to go. Who begin right now and so once. The cameras were gone and donovan. Mitchell was back home in utah. How how did he spend. This off. season is funny. Because i talked to somebody close to donovan mitchell about this a couple of weeks ago and one thing he said was donovan was on the phone with people like literally. You know two or three days after the season Sam less workout. You know the thing about donovan. He's a guy that goes out and he works on his craft resolutely. And you know. I think that not only. Did he work on his craft during the offseason but after that the rest of the jazz from person one person fifteen worked on their craft under all season as well. Well let's bring it forward to this year. How did mitchell in the jazz start off. The current season they started off on four and with two really bad losses unforced turnover passing out an equal. Don't runaway league beasley. They lost the minnesota timberwolves at home. In the second game of the season they will blown out and outclassed in brooklyn nets team did james harden because they hadn't traded for them and they didn't have durant is everywhere. Count it at one but rudy rudy. Did show back up on the screen and brooklyn's play it with alan at the energy so basically re irving at a bunch of role players that blasted the jazz in new york. You know jazz nation on the fan base was kind of going crazy. The jazz a couple of games where they look like world-beater. They had a couple of games where they look really back. And tony. I wanted to ask you about this moment. That happened on live television a few weeks ago. That was really widely discussed. It started at halftime of jazz. Pelicans game when the tnt broadcast crew was discussing the game. My question to the panel. Donovan mitchell is that the point of superstardom where he can take you there. Or he's still all star status. He needs to be so go. Third option really. Yes yeah i feel like it. No talent to do it. He's a great score. Grew there but if he's not score. What else can you do. And when the game ended shack starts interviewing donovan mitchell. Who's still on the court right after the jazz victory. Yeah and he says. I said tonight. That you are one of my favorite players. But you don't have what it takes to get to the next level as central purpose on wednesday to hear what you have to say about that. I that's it i mean. What were your thoughts when you first saw that exchange so the irony of the whole thing is that the actual conversation was fair. That part of the conversation that happened at halftime that part was fair. We know the donovan. Vigil is a dynamic offensive player. We know that he is a star. We know that he is an all star. Caliber guy for him to be a superstar. He has to round out his game and do everything he's got to defend. He's got a rebound. These got make plays for others. What wasn't fair is shaquille. O'neal saying hey. I don't think that you have what it takes to get to the next level as a player. And i just wanted you to hear that. What's your reaction. And i felt bad for about donovan. Because he was really dominant in that went over to pelicans he didn't deserve to be blindsided like up on live television and frankly he handled it as about as well as you handle something like that. My rookie year norms gonna get better mood. I do wonder cuba. The look on his face. Kind of indicated that he wasn't happy you know about the question but at the same time he's always been a person that knows how to express himself. I think he's a guy that's kinda. Learn how to lockout the proverbial outside noise and kind of focus on what he has to do and i think a desk one of the reasons why he's improved so much as a player.

Interview With Dr. Stephen Porges
"Doctor porges. Are you there. i'm here yeah. I want to gush about you for a second because i am a giant fan of your work and the observations that you brought to light. I thought it was time we took your material to the public. Which i know is going to be a little bit of a task because it's very physiological and very technical but this is the future. Are we off line. No we're on. We're on the rock. I know it sounds like i'm not talking. Okay then go ahead and gosh yes. Dr borjas develop. Something called the polly vega theory. And it is that may not be a term that is immediately apparent what it means everybody. But he basically has shown how a part of our central nervous system that has been ignored for longtime or at least marginalized. Maybe at the core of understanding. How i describe this. How are emotional. Landscapes work I i came to work. Dr portas through alan shore. I may humble disciple of his work and his his work informed. Everything i do and he is backed by the Will be on in a couple of episodes to talk to you about his work But he has been able to show you know how the emotional landscape is built how the self is built and how this is a a. We've missed the fact that this is a bodily based experience and that the auto onomic nervous system sort of breaks accelerator of our system has been marginalized in our understanding of this thing. We call motions and feelings. Is that a good way to sort of bring it start actually going if you don't mind me dancing in spring it I actually Realized i finally realized that you were trained as an internist. And what i would say is to start this. I would say that. What i do is really the interface between internal medicine and psychiatry. Yes so You should find yourself feeling very much at home. With the linkage of the on a nommik nervous system to behavioral mental health disorders will and it. Maybe that's why you ended up in addiction medicine too. Because that's a similar crossroad You know it's it's very much you know medical. There's a lot of medical stuff going on. It's there's neurobiology that's completely out of whack there's interpersonal there's dynamic issues psychiatric issues but ultimately it is about the body and the body's relation to the brain and that is something that i think has been when people talk for instance talk. I'm getting off topic completely right away here but whenever hear people talking about you know Computers or artificial intelligence. I think wait a minute. Humans have this all other thing that they're embedded in that informed so much of what they're experiencing maybe it's all of what they're experiencing but it also informs what they're thinking how they remember things and how they process information. It's why there's things like intuition and why we have insights those actually our bodies creating those those sorts of moments. I suspect well. We are biological. I mean that's what we are and whatever we do whether it's art or music or social interactions. It's really based on our biology. And this tends to be you know marginalized this importance and as you've already realized that we live in a world that is very i'll use the term cognitive centric or cle biased. It's being the same thing that this little part of the brain that deals with our awareness and our alertness in our consciousness is the major role of our brain and it's not really To help our body run and the way. Our body is functioning also feedback and provides porto's of accessibility to different mental competencies. Well let's try to talk about the vagus nerve and what you observe to talk about the poly vegas theory. I by the way gave a lecture at the usc university southern california. I know where you are. You're at dr professor of psychiatry university of north carolina By the way you can find more information at steven porges. Pr ge's dot com and the book. Which will be on. Our website is the poly bagel theory. gave a lecture not university of southern carolina near you. The university of southern california which is our usc and I tried to tip toe into your material. It was interesting because I do think. I do use it so much. In terms of helping people understand. Emotional regulation and inter subjective experiences. And they were pretty receptive. I even wrote an exam question about it which is about basic theory based in a national in a format that we're all accustomed to talk about what you observe how you got into this. Well i i'll talk about the history of getting into it in a moment but i The theory is extraordinarily logically based. But it's also intuitive. So now you have this balance between really deep science and the history of neuro anatomy off the allergy in the study of evolution on one side and the other side. The intuition of it this is this is how we feel that we act and when you put those layers together suddenly demystify. The unusual experiences people have had especially those who have been traumatized health issues. how i got into. This is really backwards. I think We all get into things that interest us about feelings and trying to understand our our body but we often go into profession so i started off in psychology and i was interested in physiological markers or parallels of psychological processes with kind of a dream that you could put electrodes on people and you Understand a lot about them without talking to them okay so you could understand A lot about their physiological states. And as i started to do my work and this is actually several decades ago i started to ask more serious questions not Simply where there correlates or relationships between ordinary activity and talking to prophecies or emotional states

We are going to be going on Hiatus off for a couple of months at the beginning of next year to give us and all of you are break. So Martin, would you like to explain what's going to happen with our patreon while we're off? Yes, so the first thing that's going off. And is there will be a payment taken on January 1st or whatever, you know, the first week of January is and that will be the money that we use to pay for the team member production costs, but then we will pause patreon taking money for a boon to podcast until we return or if indeed we return that and because you know, we haven't had our career yet and decided if we're going to do this again, but we will be pausing the patrian whilst we're off the air great. So yes, if you're subscribed and you'll continue to support us then continue to be subscribed. We won't take your money without giving you podcasts. And in the meantime, Alan what have you been up to recently? Well just in time for the exhaust episode. I have removed the audio noise that was plaguing my system and also doubled my speed on my desktop PC. Wow. Is this the same fix for Bose? It was it was one fix that did both things. It turns out I use ethernet over power adapters tp-link devices because my office is like the complete opposite end of the house from the internet connection and to get it here. I didn't run ethernet. I just use ethernet over power and I've been using it for years and there's been this background like crackle for a while and I couldn't pinpoint what it was and I thought it was cables crossing over or something like that. And also the internet in this room is 50% of what it should be. I get paid for like hundred hundred and ten Meg or something that I get home forty eight fifty something like that. And when the kids are out one day, I unplugged loads of things and Shuffle things around and it turned out it was the ethernet over power device which has a through socket was plugged into a four-way thing and I moved it. So it's plugged directly in the wall. Magically the audio problem goes away and my internet is now twice as fast off. That's all I did was. The only thing that changed was me moving the ethernet over power socket to be plugged directly in the wall. Suddenly. Everything's faster and better. Wow, great. Well, I'm glad you got that down time for one recording. Sorry Joe Martin what we even up to I have been playing Hotshot racing with my friends on that their Internet. It's a good game. This is a driving game. I imagine it is. I think I may have mentioned it earlier in the year, but it's having a bit of a Revival at the moment. It's a low poly retro arcade style game racer available on Steam and you can play it under proton. And now now I'm not working for you know, the Christmas break. I was looking to have some fun so long I've started hosting some Linux game nights and this is the game. We're playing at the moment doing an excellent romp around the tracks and can people watch you playing even if they don't want to play they can wage. I've started a second YouTube channel just for playing games on Linux and it's all streamed there and everyone who's playing along with me has a voice in the room and it's a group effort. And in fact, some of the others are streaming as well. So you can even own overlay multiple angles of the game being played at the same time brilliant. And with that let's get on with the show you as it's the last show of the year. We thought we would have a big fight respective on all of the good news that happened in 2020. So let's begin back in episode one or the 24th of March Martin. What good news did you find? I was delighted by Alain running. The urban too long will paper World Cup and Hardy heroine being voted as the all-time favorite a bun to desktop wallpaper who would possibly have seen that result coming off but what transpired is I did a bit of archaeology and we dug up the original artwork for that and we were able to reproduce a 4K version which was included in the focal fossa. LTS release later in the year nice brilliant and speaking of that LTS release. We had more good news in a purple. Yes, indeed April was of course the release of the the focal fossa LTS release and you know, I think for Alan as much as for me, you know, this is a landmark for us off. The LTS is a very important but you know personally this was my first time around being, you know engineering

The past six months everything's And I miss I. Miss. My kids were with a real faces. As is the looking, isn't it? If a living backwards world right now where if you go into a bank? Not Wearing a mask. rested. It's Everything's backwards and upside it says, we're living in a science fiction movie. It is. We are in our own Topi in future. This is bizarre. That was Zombie rb movie in the Aliens Very Very Small and the the enemy. We don't know whether alive or dead. We have no idea. We have an enemy that we that we don't rule businesses. Zombie. Movie it is or this is all a simulation over living in some type of weird computer simulation and that we completely lack the awareness every we study eastern philosophy that's that's without without the word computer. That's exactly what the. Nets exactly what it is a really interesting way to put it. So I did read your book and it was such a it's not at all. I don't know what I expected, but it was. Really Great unafraid spiritual journey web these stories that in the beginning. As you read further, I feel like at least I started to understand overall kind of arc of spiritual journey. There's just so many things that I'm so excited to talk to you about from. Meditation to Eastern Philosophy. Is. But it it it definitely as someone who's been practicing translator meditation for I don't know a few years now. You have I have Yeah Yeah I'm sure it's hopeful ready immeasurably in this past six months it does I mean it is it is sometimes it's hard to get going a little bit because you even point out in the book start to meditate, and then your mind is just flooded with chatter. And, it seems like. This particularly the journey of the performer, the comedic performer, it feels like a lot of our lives path. Is just silencing the name. In our heads and all time would you say that that has been a large part of your journey? You say another word well, I just mean like. Anxiety you know like. Thought Patterns obsessive thoughts negative thoughts You know self sabotage wanting to you know like too much awareness I mean is it Has that sort of been too much awareness of the wrong thing. Exactly. Yes. WHOA. What. A Mole I've heard this from several when I hear the same information from three completely disparaged sources I started thinking well, maybe something Then I it's like watching looking three dots that gives you the idea of what a circle as and then you find the sort of connecting go through that's going on continuing the are. Does that make sense? Absolutely. But what? I. Hear from several when I have heard from many sources of. The question is I've heard for many sources of. This is it is that ninety eight percents of the thoughts that you thought today. That you thought yesterday that you're not having original thoughts committee, your head, you just re. Was Hamster Hamster wheeling the same material that you did yesterday? And once you realize that when you start paying attention to that than. What I had to do as I said, this is a nightmare gotta get off this and that was part of the thing that led me to the exploration which continues. Now. Because it seems like it when you were young, it started with therapy and. And then it kind of transitioned into therapy, but also more eastern philosophy and spirituality meditation and. There was a constant journey inward, but it also felt like you were trying to dislodge something like some level of discomfort with yourself. Some general discomfort and Sort of realizing that's kind of a lifelong process. Particularly if you start recognizing that what they say it all he's in philosophy was beginning all this was business could be at the end. which is comforting. If you believe it or if you know what I mean, there's a difference between I talk about that a lot in the book with the difference between belief knowing something knowing something is actually scary something. I wanted. To be true. It isn't necessarily right. But I. I knew early on how I knew I don't know but I knew that there was something wrong with me and it wasn't the world was may I had to fix it? There was a sense one once I got told. Three people in my late twenties that I hadn't seen this guy addressed soon I said well, maybe maybe. Three people told me this. Maybe it's a good idea to wanted somebody and find out what the hell's going.

Okay so you know he did was an Eddie Murphy Yeah you had people you had Gilbert you head Eddie Murphy your head but I think it was up against the the to what was I. Also think that you didn't have at the helm With all due respect to Jean de Manian lawn was a genius lawn. This show long was very very funny. Lauren had taste lawn. Lawn was a comedy technician to a great extent. That wasn't in jeans Wheelhouse so even if you had a staff of writers and you head very capable actors. You didn't have anybody at the helm who could put it all together. The way worn dead also. I always thought it was like if when friends who was the top show on the air. If you change the entire cast. Yeah yeah sure. The only time that ever worked is when the first Darren died and B weird unaccepted. You just like the other guy everybody a new Marilyn Munster to those in those days. You know it's sweet Allen to the way you write about. Snl In the book. It's in the early part of the book you talking about going. Snl Forty Gilbert. Was there too short here each other? I think right behind Gilbert. Yeah but a sweet the way you talk about how well first of all your your heart goes. You're thinking about the people who weren't there you were killed and John and Dave Wilson. Yeah you look around and you're back to where you were then so I looked at it through those is Tom populated by now. You know People who are deceased. So like the director Dave Wilson and Michael O'Donoghue Gilda John. Of course or sergeant who is going mentor you know? He was the Now Herb was still there when you did the show. Right Gilbert. I don't remember herb sergeant dill. Yeah he may have been older man Gavin full share. He was a he was a much much less so Alan but a mentor to me. As well and later the greatest but lovely just lovely man gave me some great gigs. Yeah he was Yeah a legendary man and He had produced a remember. That was the week that was of course he produced that he wrote for presidents. You wrote for president. Every tied woken to know herbs. Sajjan was to be two degrees of separation from the world.

"Good morning Derek good morning Alan I am calling because I have something I call a union grass is growing up in the lawn that their little patches of it because so and so where is the great Satan brought it all yet this is already three or four inches up and it has a little of the ball but at the bottom if you were trying to get up but it has also apparently a lots and lots of the a teeny little boxes if you do you have it's impossible to get a mall is there some product I could be a and he used to kill that the yes there is now if you are going to dig it you can get almost all the bulbs if you dig a little broadly within you gonna be left with a big hole in the lawn guy go around filling up all these goals it is new grass has on it a waxy coating so it tends to shed weed killers make some just run right down specially on that narrow of foliage there are two things you can do we've been here all right we'll work on onion grass I would add some additional turbo spreader sticker with it which will make it stick better to the grass the onion grass well what is that you're saying you would use with the turbo T. U. R. B. O. it's a spreader sticker makes it stick to the foliage see it adds some of that okay and is that a the name of a particular product if you go in the store and buy yes okay it's a bond right product okay and would that be something I felt like you put that on before you close on the heels no you you makes it you make yeah you put it put you know a glug just one glove in with the because there's some in there already so you just put a little more in with the with their world for okay but there's something else you can do before you spray the onion grass it helps to to destroy that waxy coating on the onion grass and you can easily do that just by rubbing your shoe your soul live issue over the on the grass Laura Lee before you spray please go there and drag your shoe across the awning grass and that will destroy the waxy coating and it will ruin the onion grass so we can better absorb your we've been around for okay my neighbor also mentioned she thought there was some products that contain vinegar that you could use that would take care of that do you have any idea what that is or some mix of faults that occur I don't think vinegars gonna kill it vinegar may burn the top off of it but I don't think vinegars gonna kill it okay he added it was something that contain vinegar out of some combination of chemicals including vinegar but I you know the name of it or any well they're they're featuring these products now for people who want to be totally organic but organic we control is very very very difficult and not entirely effective and onion grass is one of the toughest weeds we have in the lawn so why wouldn't fool around with any vinegar product okay sorry good I have one other question we have rather Denton and as families have turned to hail green and some of them of turn that you know yellow look yellow or yellowish and is there something I can use yeah well you can feed it with your cottonseed meal fertilizer but I also would put some iron sulfate down iron sulfate okay good and that's that although all of those products are available and a well stocked garden center okay sorry good thank you very nine I think you're in good shape all right great thanks a lot take care bye bye okay let me mention the best grass seeds I know of the Chesapeake valley grass seeds a Maryland company blending for Maryland using the grass seeds that come out the highest in the Marilyn trials not a nationwide company blending for some kind of average you've got your vitality which is threefold turf type issues blended together blue tag certified by the state of Maryland and you won't often find blue tag certified seed around zero percent weeds and it is available all this has to be valley seats are available at the three A. stores now they've got Jake great this is the is the dash AC I have every you mainly because it has a high percentage of hard fescue hard fescue is a more expensive seed but I have known loans that were totally neglected for years and the hard fescue it really has taken over and survive so for shade you need a good amount of hard fescue if you look at you have a shade seed you won't find it in there because it is more expensive what using Chesapeake valley sees they are competitively priced the seeds that do not have the hard fescue in and I'll tell you a little secret the reason why the hard fescue is in such amount in your shade may is because I asked them to put it in there and they agreed and while what a great shade seeds and of course they have their sound in shade mixed together for India where you've got areas you're not quite sure what's going on with let's go next to Forest Hill what's that didn't work hello hi Todd Hey you doing doing okay what can help you with well real quick I've got winter agonized thank a lot of ground cover and it's in a shaded area little bit of shade is there anything you recommend that I can put on there just to give it a little booster should I leave it alone what would give it a little shot maybe a little I I would think you could use organically mill organized or you can use plant trust land plus okay land trust all right just throw that in there yes because the actinides Nobel's all that stuff is just spreading like crazy is doing great but I thought I'd give it a little shot of something one other thing those people that listen to the program that have bluebird boxes believe me right now is the time if you've taken the effort to put a bluebird box up go out make sure it's clean from any debris or any other little mice living in it or anything like that because this is the month that they're coming with the scouts looking for places to nest this year I know the our season in my yard yeah they actually sitting on top of the of the of the house stood trying to chase away everybody else is common well you know they're so gentle and they're they're not an aggressive bird other birds can sometimes take a box and you have to keep an eye on him and just make sure that if there are there are you don't want to see another bird command you to do going to clean that mess out and get it back ready so a blue bottle take it live Preciado you're reminding us of that no problem all right you take care you do the best you can buddy all right bye bye okay let me mention my favorite tree service quality work at a great price licensed and insured a cut above four one oh nine eight four zero four six nine let's go next to Cornwall New York morning Maryam good morning Ellen how are you this morning I'm doing okay good Ellen so I'm calling about a tree in my yard is a connoisseur it might be possible but I'm not sure and it doesn't it's a lot of trouble years it has not been doing too well it's about sixty feet tall and then there are quite a few years many decades and until it's been a couple years ago it looks much healthier than it does now the branches seem to stand out there Gregory and the very small branches with the needles are attentive group mostly rather than fort point more two zero more to above and order up and and I was wondering if you have any suggestions on how I could go about researching what to do to treat it or to have a tree service come in and look at it in person it's not in danger of falling but of course I am concerned that it is in a weakened state that you know it it might cause any of my clothes problem with the storm right you probably have a disease that is going around killing loses in the areas it's called needle cast again needle cast only okay okay and it's is it started out with the blue spruces and it starts at the base and it worked its way up also I suggest you ask the tree service if you have needle cast and if you do just have to create a plant any more school okay no need okay in all orders adult content I have never actually fertilized it it may have been fertilized years ago but so I had we haven't been doing anything of that nature it is a nail care should I try to see it in some way you can certainly features with plant trust okay all right okay all right very good okay Ellen I have one other question I have coupled amaryllis here one in particular in his bloom twice and the blues of course stated but on the second go into the second round two of the four blossoms has a small green bowl will look like soldiers behind the flower which of course is no dried up and so when I was hitting the the the flowers I know not to green though they were on the other two of the four blows I didn't you know what they are as those are C. during the winter those are seed seed pods Bob okay that are about to form and they will take strength from the bulb growing amaryllis from seeds can be done but it takes about seven years to get in trouble okay so you probably don't want to fool around with it she just cut him off so to cut them off and they're not they don't need to stay there or just cut them off to take a break from the ball all right okay thank you very much Alan appreciate it you're very welcome okay all right bye bye okay let's see here I want to mention again what's going on if a so they're fully stocked with all the things you need to take care of your lawn and the plants are starting to come in a nice selection of early perennials came in this week in Edgewater and they're all twenty percent off including the hellebores and I do recommend you buy hellebores whenever in bloom so you're sure you get you know the previous ones and the winter blooming jasmine which is a low growing shrubs that I mentioned are only twenty percent of all twenty percent off in all three aces in Milwaukee tonight let's go next to track good morning Beverly good morning many years ago I planted what's called I think of spring

So it's it's or being being cleared of leukemia. Because you have a window that you could possibly get leukemia in that ten year window. And I'm still in that window but I'm I was like a year out after Chemo. Well a few months after Chemo when I had the oh so remission. Tech technically begins when that window N. I C.. But I wasn't in Chemo in recovery. Getting checked and stuff but technically. Because there's there's a high chance of it coming back or something else or going into another part of your body. They give that long Wendo and I have been out of Chemo for a few months when I had the meltdown and then WAKEUP call that you need to address. Yeah Yeah I went to the hospital for a while and then I went into therapy. And that's actually where I found on my psychiatrist for connecting me to my rabbi. So it was sort of a full circle thing but it was a it was a it was a rough rough roughly two years there where I was pretty much out of commission so there wasn't a lot of dating but there was a lot of sex mistakes. Sure you gotTA gotTa have. Aplenty affects mistakes. And then after that it was so interesting meeting Michael because like I've been another long term relationships and they all kind of started this way way. Where like there's never any discussion of a relationship? It just sort of happened. Yeah it just happens it just becomes that even him moving in. It wasn't a big conversation about like is. Are we ready. Are we at that place. It was just like this makes sense and I really don't WanNa drive across town kept like let's do this and it's it's worked but has the experience that you I mean you. You lived a life that most of us. We'll never even experience before hopefully but yeah before even getting into this relationship with Michael did how did it a change your approach to Ta- dating. Yeah my I mean my go-to thing for when anything bad happens is at least. It's not cancer which is like a real Downer for a lot of people I get but I also like being that person so I think in a weird way I used to be really affected by. I dating failures before cancer and I mean I think with anybody. Anyone who has had a traumatic thing happened in their life. That dramatic thing is often the touchtone one in which you look to for solace like you look to for putting things into perspective that things don't spiral out of control and I don't have another blind meltdown down at the ARC light. And it is a touchdown it still like. It still was A. It wasn't easy because I couldn't connect with anyone and but I often can't connect with people like I can't like I couldn't communicate necessarily what I was feeling because in some weird way I had had this I think possibly arrogant perception that they're not going to understand how I'm feeling anyway or anything that I've done or gone through or whatever and and I just didn't want the questions so a Lotta Times I would just either self sabotage a relationship or dating thing or I would just do it for the sacks and go and really I think some self destructive paths. Yeah I had a lot of self destructive. I traveled a lot. I perform Berlin. Oddly enough and I would go there and get into a lot the trouble and yeah I just did a lot of really self destructive things through therapy I calm down and figured out a few things awesome. Yeah can we get Berlin anecdote. Sure I got robbed in Berlin. We're getting a blowjob. I remember what didn't dig deeper. The go-to story for that I was I was on. I just gone over there. This is like maybe a year after two years after Chemo and and I had I had gone over there for a show and because I used to do this tour group where like we were performed for American students universities and in Europe up and you just shake lots of jewelry yeah dynasty jewellery over here and and I had had I went out and had some fun. You know drank a little too much and I went to one of the famous dark rooms at the bars and Berlin bars and I went down and I'm not. I'm not very cool of a person like in just not cool Like you don't look at me and think cool like you look at me. Well I mean but you know what I mean like. I don't go in and I'm not like I don't have the gear or like the facial hair. I had a beard for Awhile Network for me but it just didn't work. I'm just not that person and so I couldn't meet anyone the way other people were meeting them. Do you know what I mean. Like coming up in a really intensely sexual way or whatever so I met this one person who who is standing near me and I literally said You WanNa like that was my pick up line and it worked and I was in a corner and he was blowing me and and I and then all of a sudden all these other guys came over and I was like I'm cool. I felt really cool. And then we went to a private space base and then afterwards I went up to buy him a drink. Gentlemen and I didn't have my. I didn't have any money like I had. Nothing had nothing and I was like and I had my wallet but like I didn't have my id or anything. So I didn't either get into bars and Berlin and I am paranoid Roydon. Leave all my stuff at the hotels where only money with me and business cards. I had business cards and I go back downstairs thinking maybe it fell out of my pocket or maybe something happened during the blow job and I just see I used to have these business cards with my face on it with a microphone was old school. Like stupid comedy business cards and I just see a sea of my face smiling a bat me where someone clearly took out. My Wallet took out my money. Put my wallet back in my pants that were on the ground like my pants were like at my that my ankles and and Yeah I got robbed and do you think that he was part of. Uh maybe it was worth it if so it was a great hookup but like I mean. And if if if he was part of it he really put out so like earned it in a way sort of. Yeah I mean I think like I don't think he was involved because I don't I wouldn't do anal for something that is like the action if the robberies already happened I wouldn't continue it and go do anal unless you're really into me much possible. Yeah it's a beautiful note to end tender. Tell people where they can find you. Yeah I'm H Allen Scott on everything and you can go to latter-day Ju Dot Com for the film People listen to Oh yes we're worse. Go with my podcast I do. With eleazer and Brent Sullivan to very funny. Pass this coming of this fucking well. We haven't had Brent yet. You haven't got to work on that. He's very good. He's he's awesome very intelligent to crack that Shell. Don't ask them to take a shirt off. Never thing he's never knew showed up to a pool party of mine in a black black sweater and jeans. Yep Yeah that's that's been solid like I'm excited about. Yeah and I love Elliott. Who will take a sort off? Because I've seen him take everything. Well no you won't take everything off unless he's a certain situation you know what there's something I really want to settle with Elliott that you can. I'll say this person but it only occurred to me after after the fact that he he did this podcast. We talked a lot about stuff that you talk about on the on the on on your show gay instagram influencers Sir. Yes all of that and and him. You know considering being surprised that he was dating someone because he can never considered himself sort of one of the handsome 's and then shortly after that podcast episode came out. I saw him at a party and I was with with my friend Diana and she never met Elliot before and I was like Oh you you just heard him and she goes. Yeah and then I I. I saw the picture they posted a view with because Elliott's is is ripped. He has like a full like eight-pack. Yeah and she was like very surprising. Varies apprising whatever. Elliot said to me later like could your friend be little less surprised about what I was. I totally get it and I never explained it and followed up with him but I'm like. Oh no she what she didn't mean like. Oh I never thought you would have she her introduction to him was hearing on the podcast and the way he described himself and then she saw picture of images psycho. He's Hot I think. That's sometimes the disconnect and I have a heated disagreement over the intention action of words. And how oftentimes like for example if on Grindr someone messages you and they say hello and you're not interested in that person. What is the follow all through? Do you say sorry type. Good luck or do you just ignore and just let it not even engaged so that there's no pretense of of of interest and I'm of of the latter camp I think don't engage. Don't give any hint of any interest at all send. The same message stings a lot less things a lot less whereas Elliott just things. You GotTa be Nice. You have to be nice and you have to acknowledge if someone communicates with view that communication you are. You're you deserve a communication back and I am of the type you don't deserve anything now are owed nothing. Also your approach is nicer. Yes yeah I think so and so this person and I I can. I've experienced this with Elliot to before where you know it's it's about the it's about words. Then how the perception of those words and how we take those words in and And that's a very common theme very funny theme with an Elliott which is is what which is why he heard it and I only realized later. Oh she was only saying that because she had she heard the way that you described yourself on your podcast and they saw a picture. Sure view after that but I will say Brenton Elliott our pussies insofar as they can't take any they won't look at comments. They hate criticism whereas I like get off on it. I know that I can be problematic and that sort of the role that we play on the podcast is that I am the more queer one. I'm the more flamboyant one. I'm the more out out there. and Elliott is sort of in the middle area of sort of being in the Gay World Kinda hating gay world sometimes and Brench basically.
"alan i" Discussed on Homophilia
"I think at one point like there was there was lots of sort of tension between the two and it's not unlikely that a kid. She takes a piece of pineapple from his bowl that he had as a treat. He gets angry because he has a history of being angry at her. He takes the closest thing a flashlight he hits on the head she passes out or or heated. Probably doesn't I I think that at the time he didn't know that he killed her right. Yeah allegedly I think that he hit her she passed out he went. He told his parents his parents than did the horrible. I allegedly. Maybe did the horrible things that happened to her. After that incident right. Yeah so it was not a small foreign faction nope it was not a small foreign faction and I solved the case years ago. I was telling people for years. Follow the fruit. Follow the fruit. no-one believe believe me I studied the case meticulously and then finally. CBS also home. My friend Gayle King solved when I have believed forever to be what happened and now with Laura Richards and Jim Colucci of real quick profile foul. And how come is anyone going after the brother. Well I mean no because there's nothing they can do Colorado Law. You have to be ten years old in order to be convicted of a crime and to be able to commit the crime under under under Colorado Law and he was nine and a half really not even I think he was just shy of being ten at the time of the crime so no the only thing that potentially surely probably could happen. And I don't even know what the statute of limitations are is possible involvement by the father. But the I'm obsessed with it. That's my favorite murder. They did interview interview him a couple years ago. Dr Phil and Dr. Yeah and the odd thing with Dr Phil is the lawyer for. Dr Phil is also the lawyer for the father. So that's how that all got connected. So That's how Dr Phil got the interview and it's like. How is this an unbiased interview? If your lawyer is the one who set it up like your lawyer protects you and then he gets you the center and so with Doctor Phil's approach I'm here to exonerate this essentially. Yeah when it's like you don't you can't really do that right. You're not unbiased you have taken this. Yeah yeah here's kind of a creepy. I mean obviously it was a creepy interview kind of had. Here's just a weird. I mean. He's Kinda hot though in that. Like strangle you kinda way like. He's he's like hot like you know he's GonNa be weird in bed. You know what I mean you know. He's probably going to Um mm something strange whisper like I really want cheerios. You're random or maybe by or pineapple the street mill apple in itself. I love yes. I'm not a dairy person so it's also various setting. Looks like or duplex brother. kind of I mean that's not. That's not a great picture of him. He does have an unfortunate smile. Close mouths look more like murderer. Yeah yeah allegedly. You don't WanNa get okay. Were you obsessed with the Shawn Hornbeck kidnapping in Saint Louis. Oh yes I was. I was too because it was down the street from my home yet. Where my house where? We're both from Saint. Louis where are you from Kirk Kirkwood. You're both in Kirkwood officially okay. Yeah but that's what I thought because I I remember talking about that previously. Well okay so it was this kid and I guess he disappeared in like ninety one. Let's say yeah something like that. He's twelve or thirteen. It was a town called Corkwood. He was younger than that I think he was he was a teenager when he got foul. Right yeah so yes so he he disappeared. It was in Kirkwood. Where where there's a proper main street and there's like a train station Nice cream stores? Yeah and so he disappeared and there were signs that whole summer home signs wanted to get involved. It was all all over the news. It was all over them but there are lots of kids going missing around that time in St Louis so this kid was found. How many like eight years later? Yes something like that because the kid had like similar situation missing yeah not in Kirkwood in like southern Missouri. Like near the boot Hill I think and the kid had been missing for like a couple the weeks and the boy was who sean who had been kidnapped for years. They found a little boy. And then they found sean the same brought back to the house where and he had been like the place where he had been kept was a quarter mile away from his home. Yeah and he like. I mean you could would probably make a case that it was Stockholm Syndrome. I recently watched the Oprah interview that they gave after after he was found and he talked about sitting. There was a website that they they made to find him and he messaged his father on the website. Not Saying it was him but saying something like do you still think he's alive or something like the kid messages father he had access to the Internet. He was playing games. He could go outside. He could do all these things so you can make a case that it was Stockholm Syndrome. Essentially terrified what would happen to him and I didn't go into details about what happened to him but I think you can probably assume what happened and and the kid just lived for years but then there was something when the new kid was brought brought in it shifted in something in this kid and I think there was this protection that the other kids Sean was doing for the Little Kid and and the Guy who was the kidnapper. He was the local pizza guy at emails on Kirkwood road. Yep Pizza how he made my pizza. I ate his pizza for title on Pizza. Especially most is so polarizing topic but yes it is delicious by it. Even if it's Ki- Kidnapper Bob Child Predator problematic. Yeah but it's still delicious. It is still delicious with the garlic cheeseburger and now now that kid is like you know he's probably thirty up by now. Yeah Yeah and and he's just you know kind of gotten back to normal life. He seemed even after he was found fairly level fairly. LEVEL-HEADED I mean. Yeah the Oprah interview you can watch it on Youtube because I did. He seemed after the kidnapping after he was. He was very close with his father. You could. He kept looking to his father father in the interview. You could definitely tell there was an emotional attachment. That he after being found was latching himself to his father and he and his father in the interview. There was a lot of sort of taking care of each other are making this case but he seemed fine and I'm thinking like after a kidnapping something that that long of a kidnapping I'd be a mess. Yeah Yeah you know my probably look great. I probably within he did look he looked good. He wasn't handsome kid and I'm sure he's a very handsome man. I mean I go back to Missouri quite often to see my family or to perform or whatever and I there is something about that like you know now soft belly Missouri Man. Who just you know? He voted for trump. But you just want it. Jesus Christ. He's on twitter. He is he is. He's on the handsome can't yes he is. He Looks Very Oh. This is an old picture. He Yeah I WANNA make sure you remember who I am. I think there's even an organization that they have now to help with other kids that have gone missing and stuff. There was a recent case Jason Missouri. I forget her name. You would remember Angeles something. It was an early ninety. She was reported missing and and then they found her body and she was like tied to to a tree in Saint Charles. Yeah and she was barely alive but she had been there for days and then she eventually died and they just found her killer or her rapist. I guess eventually killer Through DNA later while we're on this very topic. Have you seen that Sandy Hook at. We're recording this day. Oh describe I refuse used to watch it. You really should is that. It's by the group the the Organization Sandy Hook Promise and it's it is a looks like a target target back to school. Add these caller folders really helped me organize my homework. Whatever and then it's like the school where this like peppy back to school will add is being filmed? There's a shooting they'd like but the kids don't break the the rhythm of the Ad Really. It's just it's fun it. We're looking from boulders. All No it's just it's I don't WanNA spoil too much but it's like it's it's all about stuff that they bought for back to school and and I it how they have to use it in an actual. It's I don't enjoy just watch it shootings do I would not as much as I should should but it does occur to me sometimes when I like when I'm in a packed theater asked by myself like Oh this would be the perfect place. We are stuck here. I'm on edge liquid especially because of for some reason the Walmart shooting really hit me and shop a lot and I I find talking with with Michael. My boyfriend fully go about this. We were at Disneyland or something and like I find myself like on edge especially if I hear a noise or something like that. I'm very much because I am always ready for the killer. I think that's probably part of it but also like I think because there's been such a frequency of mass shootings recently that like in public spaces. I feel aware of it. I feel aware that like something could happen. Like I'm not necessarily looking for like where I would block them. My boyfriend's like you can't control it. If it happens it happens like you can't think about it. But it's also like when I'm at target or whatever I do especially like if I go to the target in Burbank banker. For some reason. I feel like the far out of Los Angeles the more. I'm scared for like something could happen. I don't know I mean that's probably barely should he have to say but I I. It's all these these pockets outside l.. A. Where you might as well be in like southern Ohio. I mean you know. Trump didn't didn't win sort of Orange County but like he came close and it was. Hillary was the first Democrat in a long time to win. Orange County presidential candidate and like if I go anywhere outside outside of La for anything and because of promoting the movie and stuff and going to a lot of synagogues and stuff outside of Los Angeles..
