Kelly Tshibaka: Why Did FTX Support Mitch McConnell?

"So you need support in order to continue to fight to count these ballots and so forth Are you getting any from Mitch McConnell I did not get a support for Mitch McConnell I think we saw I mean this story is still evolving We saw today our mouths drop open as we see that FTX gave over $2 million to McConnell They gave money to Murkowski They gave money to all the Democrats But why is McConnell on that list with all these Democrats and McConnell's Senate leadership fund that worked so hard to tink my campaign and preserve a minority in the Senate when that's not his job His job as leaders to make sure we Republicans have a majority Let me get this straight And I'm a little behind the curve So this crook this FTX guy gave $2 million to the Senate leadership fund McConnell's fund I was sent an article today that said two and a half $1 million from FTX went to Senate leadership fund and we know that McConnell pledged over up to $9 million spent in Alaska I think we still have to see how much the actual receipts were to make sure Murkowski preserved that Tennessee Yeah You got it

Kelly Tshibaka: Lisa Murkowski Was Not Properly Vetted

"In our race we literally had an actress from California come up here change her name pretend to be an Alaskan to try and become our U.S. senator Could you imagine she has dark money funded in everything if we had fallen for that And if it hadn't been exposed in time and read elected a fake person on actress from California funded by dark money to be our next U.S. senator that's how crazy this system is because you don't have parties actually vetting candidates to say this person is legitimate They stand for what we believe and they can run with our name and that's what's actually here worked for Murkowski's advantage She's been thrown out of the Republican Party She's not a member She's been told she can not be a member She can not use the Republican name She's been officially censured It didn't stop her She decided she's going to call herself a Republican anyway We can see from the votes the actual Democrat candidate has only 10% of the vote So where did all those Democrats go They ranked her number one Murkowski's are putative Democrat candidate but she has an R behind her name because in Alaska you can't be a U.S. senator and not be a Republican This really should have been a race between me and the Democrat candidate that Murkowski is on the ballot anyway and that's because of ranked choice election

Kelly Tshibaka: Still Waiting to Find Out Alaska Senator

"What the hell's going on up there We are still waiting to determine the final outcome of the election as you know the actual election was on November 8th I think we have the least amount of votes to count in the 50 states and we will take the longest to count them And a large part of that is because they implemented this ranked choice system that George Soros funded organizations are trying to push throughout the United States There are only two states that have it statewide at this point That's main and Alaska and we know what those two U.S. senators have in common And we're dealing with it for the first time up here in Alaska One of the things that we saw as an effect is one of the lowest voter turnouts that we've seen in decades And unfortunately I think that that has had a real big impact on the results So for ten days or so I was leading substantially over Murkowski and then just here recently it is flipped She has a .7% lead over me the election is not done yet They still have to run the ranked choice algorithm where the fourth and the third place candidates will drop off and depending on who they ranked as their second place in third place preferences That's ultimately going to determine who wins this race So we're still in this fight This could go to a potential recount This could go to people filing lawsuits So I'm asking your listeners for help Please help us at Kelly for AK dot com I don't know what twists and turns will come next but I will need help So Kelly for AK dot com we've also had to pay for staff costs this whole time for doing the ballot observations for weeks now and that's been pretty pricey as well So if you can help I'd appreciate it Kelly for a K dot com

Kathleen Madigan on Why People Have a Personal Connection to Trump

"That's an interesting sociological thing 'cause you play all over the country. What is it? Do you think? What is the personal connection to Donald Trump? I don't know. I don't know why, like one lady in Florida. She was kind of a drunk grandma. You stood up in a balcony and a theater somewhere on the gulf side of Florida and said, Kathleen, I love you and I love Sarah Palin. Don't make fun of her. I had not said a word except Sarah Palin, comma. Now if the lady would have listened, my joke was really about the gist of it is there's no people in Alaska to have more respect for you if you were the game warden than I would if you said you were the governor because there's a lot. It's a lot more dangerous if you're okay. It's a stupid joke. It's silly innocuous. But that lady was so upset because she like, I don't know. I'm like, you can't love me and her. And you're at my show, so I'd pick me if I were you. Which one is it? I don't know what the Trump thing you could do any other Republican, any other Democrat and people do not lose their minds. There's something about I know this is going to sound snotty coastal liberal elite, but an education problem where they're just like, oh, I want people that sound dumb, like me. I just can't. I don't understand what the connection is. I it could go back to the, you know, George Bush, people are like, I'd like to have a beer with him. Right. Well, right. You might want to have a beer with me, but I shouldn't be running anything. I mean, just because I seem fun, which I am. You are that doesn't mean I'm qualified to work at NASA. I don't understand that leap. When people say, I think George Bush seemed fun too. The younger one to have a beer with after golf with a country club. I get it. Right. But what is that next level where I defend him like I would, my brother. It's weird.

Here's Why You Can't Have Ranked Choice Voting

Here's Why You Can't Have Ranked Choice Voting

"Why you can't have ranked choice voting. Is the worst. This is so frustrating. Protect democracy, but allow ranked choice voting. Kelly shabaka, she won the most votes she won a plurality of votes in a four way race with 44%. So she won the race, right, Charlie. Not in Alaska. But she had the most votes. Doesn't matter. You have to get 50 plus one or else or else what? You go to the second round of ranked choice voting. The what? So in Alaska, the way it works, and this was designed and implemented because thanks to project veritas, we know this. Lisa Murkowski put together a coup in Alaska. And basically said that if you do not get 50 plus one, then it goes to the second round. Now, some people say, well, Charlie, to be fair, we're not won his race, but he didn't get more than 50%. Well, that's a runoff system. This is a this is not even allowing for a runoff, which I would support. If there is a runoff now between Murkowski and shabaka, then great. That's fine. Let's do it. Shabaka would win by 20 points. But it would be would it be would have run off with the ranked choice voting again? No, no, no, no. Well, that's the point, is that there isn't. Instead of a runoff, which is annoying but understandable. Right. Because some people say, well, hold on a second. But Georgia. Like Charlie, you know, isn't a runoff system helping you in Georgia. Of course it is. Yes, it is, because Herschel Walker did not get a plurality. We're not going to plurality. The point is this is that this now goes to this goofy algorithmic second and third round, where they have to tabulate the votes, and I'll be very honest. I do not even understand how this is tabulated, where it depends on whether or not people ranked shabaka or if they did a second candidate. Shabaka's hope in this whole tabulation process is that if a vast majority of people only ranked shabaka and left the rest of the ballot completely blank. That's her hope.

How Blake Masters and Kari Lake Can Win Arizona

How Blake Masters and Kari Lake Can Win Arizona

"Steve Cortez, you're optimistic about Arizona. That's fascinating. Tell me why in the case of both Carrie Lake and Blake masters. Yes. Well, in the case of Carrie Lake. I think it's clearer there that there remaining batches of ballots that are outstanding and not Charlie Turk by way did a great job to get into all the details of this. But when you look at it just mathematically in terms of the probability where the remaining votes are, the percentages that she has already accrued in those very jurisdictions and the total outstanding. It's very likely that not only is she going to win, but actually by a reasonably comfortable margin. I don't mean 10%. But I mean, by a few percent. And I think she has made that case quite well herself as have others who have looked deeply into the numbers. Now, it's much less clear on Blake masters. I will admit that. But I'm facing my optimism there, primarily on talking directly to him and to his campaign team. They believe that it's going to be very, very close, but on a similar trajectory in half as Carrie Lake just not as numerically big a margin. I want to say, by the way, speaking of reasons why we underperformed. And again, we're going to take the house, I believe we're going to take the Senate. So there are also reasons to rejoice. But at the same time, it's like an athletic team wins, but didn't play as well as they should have. They should be introspect. Every good coach does that to a team. Okay, you won, but I'm actually going to be across you than if you lost. Because you underperformed. Another reason looking at underperformers. Why is Blake masters in this? This showdown was apparently being a photo finish. A big part of the reason is that Mitch McConnell decided to use his tens of millions of dollars as massive war chests on fights that are ultimately futile, for example, on Doctor Oz in Pennsylvania, a terrible candidate who never should have been our nominee or on the intra Republican Party feud in Alaska rather than giving one penny. He didn't spend anything on Blake masters in Arizona. And even if Blake masters ultimately loses, he clearly was an incredibly effective candidate to come this close and I think he's going to win, but I'm saying even if he were to lose, he has proven that he's an incredibly effective candidate as a newcomer to politics to take on an incumbent well funded senator like Mark Kelly and take him right down to the wire.

Some Conservatives Are in Hiding, Taking the Day Off

"We were having this conversation before we started the program. That it was hard getting a lot of these politicians and the pundits and the pollsters to call in the program today. Yes. So they're all in hiding. They are. That's why. They're all hiding under tables right now. No, and I get it. I get it. And there are even some conservative talk radios that are taking the day off. Yes. I guess for some R and R mental health. But we don't do that. Yeah, we may be nuts, but we're not going to take a mental health day. And the reason why is, you know, we've got to talk about all of this stuff. And it's going to be a tough day. It's a crazy day. It's a weird day. But I just want people to understand this. We're not going to be hiding under the bed. We're going to we're just going to plow through all of this. It was a weird night, and it's we still are waiting for a lot of votes to be counted, and here is the message. I would much rather have a red ripple than a blue wave. Amen. So you can take that for what it's worth, am I shocked that there was not a red tsunami, ladies and gentlemen? Absolutely. No doubt about it. I was looking at the polling data. The two pollsters that we trust the most on this program, they got it wrong. As a matter of fact, just about every pollster got it wrong. But we have a lot of we still have a lot of races out and look this thing is not over yet. There are still our votes to be counted. I'm looking right now at my tally here. You've got Georgia, Alaska, Nevada and Arizona. Those Senate races are still undecided.

Mitch McConnell's Unforgivable Betrayal

"To comment on the Republican establishment as well because I've been pretty upset the last couple of weeks with what I've been seeing, which is a betrayal of amazing candidates across the country that are left to fend for themselves. It's a very serious problem. And we should never forget it. We're not going to know for probably a week, so brace yourself for impact. Georgia, Arizona and Pennsylvania are already telling us that it's going to take a week for us to get election results. So just get ready for that. Remember, you get what you put up with and Brian Kemp and raffensperger and do see an Arizona. We're not bold enough to get the election reform changes necessary. Now I hope there's no fraud. I hope that we overwhelm the fraud. I think we will. I think that Carrie Lake is going to win the governor's race in Arizona. I really do. And so we're fighting right now like crazy to make sure Blake masters wins against the fraud of Mark Kelly, but let me tell you the problem. Blake masters has raised about 15 to $20 million. Mark Kelly has raised $75 million and Mitch McConnell is instead spending money in Alaska to go defeat a great Republican. $9 million has been spent on defeating a Trump endorsed candidate Kelly shabaka, meanwhile, Blake masters is being outspent in Arizona. Meanwhile, he pulled out all the money in New Hampshire with a great candidate Don baldick, and he goes up in the polls and he says, maybe I'll do a million. You see McConnell is not counting votes. He's counting seats. And this is a huge problem. I'm telling you right now, he has betrayed the grassroots of this country and has allowed our candidates and left them on an island. $9 million in Alaska, while our candidates can't raise money while we are being outspent at every single corner in turn. So you ask the question have we done enough with election integrity? No.

Alaska GOP Votes to Censure McConnell for Supporting Lisa Murkowski

"David and I here for our Friday roundup and we wanted to start by talking about, well, a couple of Republicans who need to be called out and the first one of them is Mitch McConnell. And Mitch McConnell is being called out. He's been called out by the Alaska Republican Party. You want to talk about talk about this? Yeah, so I saw this in the news that his leadership pack, the Senate leadership fund, has been running attack ads against shabaka, right? So Kelly shabaka has been on the podcast and she is the choice of the Republican Party of Alaska. She's the Republican nominee. So think about this. Here is the Senate majority leader Republican Mitch McConnell, attacking a Republican in Alaska. Why? Because he wants to help Lisa Murkowski hold dot seat. Yes. Now, Lisa Murkowski is the incumbent, but yes. Lisa Murkowski has run afoul of the Alaska Republican Party. Yes. They have well, they censure her. They did hurt the same thing to her too. Well, after she did after she voted for Trump's impeachment. And so the Alaska Republican Party says here has passed a 49 to 8 resolution. To tell McConnell to back off and you know, Kelly shabaka herself makes a very simple point, which is yeah, so she's like, his intervention in the Alaska race was wasting valuable resources that could go to defeat Democrats in other states. So, but you know what? What you talked about a couple of days ago about McConnell explains it all. McConnell is not really in it for the Republicans, if you think about it. He's really in it for himself

Kelly Tshibaka: A Shift in the Lisa Murkowski Playbook

"Lisa Murkowski endorsed the Democrat running for the House and the Democrat running for the House endorsed Lisa Murkowski Is that correct That's correct So this is a somewhat significant shift in the Murkowski playbook What she typically does is says one thing in Alaska and does the opposite in D.C. So she'll say the Republican lines in Alaska like she ran paid ads up here saying that Joe Biden was coming to grab our guns while she colluded with Biden and McConnell on that extreme gun control legislation and red flag laws and she voted for it and got it through Those are completely against Alaska values even Democrats carry guns in Alaska So she'll say one thing here she'll do the opposite when she gets back to her friend in D.C. But this time she actually just said what she does She's pulling for Pelosi We've got four candidates on our congressional ballot three of them would caucus with the Republicans Every Republican across the country is trying to flip the house because the radical leftist agenda of Nancy Pelosi is hurting everybody and instead Murkowski who puts an R behind her name as polling for the Pelosi agenda There's only one candidate on our ballot who would caucus with Nancy Pelosi and line up with that radical left agenda And that's who Murkowski is putting her weight behind and by extension to your point That's who McConnell's funding We have more dark money in our state flooding this election supporting Mercedes key than either Murkowski or I have spent combined for our campaigns That's how much money is up here right now Trying to preserve the Murkowski monarchy because that's how significantly they can control her vote back in Washington D.C. but we don't want to senator bought bullied in boxed in by the establishment McConnell Biden and Pelosi We want to senator that represents our Alaska voice and values

It started as a grassroots organization of like minded Americans who started out in the states United States of America of the people by the people for the people And the idea that our quote Republican leader is coming in and dominating and domineering over the decisions and the determination of the delegates of the party of Alaska telling us who we have to vote for against our will is extremely offensive

Yeah? That's good though. It's all a team effort. A good meat hall, but you did really well fishing off that. Part of the river and you cut some really nice red salmon. Most kids your age have never caught a salmon, let alone a red like that. So that's pretty cool. Yeah, not many, not many kids get to come to Alaska with their dads. So this is a special trip, isn't it? Very special trip. And your one heck of a card shark we were playing uno flip and let me tell you, hunter is quite the competitor who knows flip. Yep. I will just keep playing and playing. There's a lot of fun though. Yeah. So what are some things to think about for other kids to bring if they're going to come up here and go fishing with their dads? Well, definitely wearing quite a few pairs of coats, pants, shirts because you're going to get wet. And you're going to smell fishy. We all smell fishy after a few days efficient, didn't we? Yeah. Snacks are important, right? Yeah. A lot of snacks. Maybe a book or something to keep you entertained. Definitely have a carry on because you're going to hate it just having a suitcase that you can't get to. Your snacks and your books. Yeah, and for those of you who have never been to Alaska, there's a lot of car time involved as well. And so hunter was a champion did really well. A two flights, one, two and a half hours, one 5. And then two car drives, a three hour car drive and a 5 hour car drive. Yep, and we get to do it all over again when we go home, don't we? All over. Backing him we go. Would you want to stay longer if you get to come again? Yes, I would say I would want to stay longer. What would you want to fish for more if we stayed longer? We might go trolling for some stuff. You want to go trolling in the boat? Maybe go catch some more sockeye.

"alaska" Discussed on How to Live A Fantastic Life

"Yeah. The problem is we are coming into their Woods. We're coming into their nature. So sometimes we surprise them. Well, you know, and that's the big thing about human beings in nature is we are so egocentric. We look at everything from our perspective. And you know, even when Galileo, a couple hundred years ago, looked through the first telescope and he insisted that our planet was not fixed in place that the sun did not revolve around us, but vice versa, and for that scientific fact, he was thrown in jail and imprisoned and made to recant. So that egocentric attitude, I think, pervades human beings, that we are at the center of everything in the animals and the natural world are subservient to us. When anything, we're actually fellow brethren here on spaceship earth. Yes, that's right. So, you know, we certainly lived in the same environment. We tried to do it. And what I think has happened, at least in the last, have we been able to keep the natural parts of it natural. I think that's one of the keys. That's not happening all over the world. Well, Alaska is probably one of the very few places left where nature is more as you said in man is less. And a lot of the reason is, is like you probably experienced on your cruise, the poor towns that the ship's visit are what we call mountain barrier. They are wedged in on a little delta with mountains going straight up around them, so you really can't build on that vertical mount site. So it keeps the population at a minimum, like in Phoenix, Arizona, you know, I go to visit my family and every year it grows about 20 miles. Someday, LA and Phoenix, I think, are going to meet out there in the desert. Just because it's flat in construction. But in Alaska is very challenging geographically and that keeps the human population low. And nature big. Yes. What are your favorite things to do in Alaska when you're going up on a cruise these days? What are your things? Then you tell everybody to take part. Well, I always send them out to the glaciers besides what you can see from the ship. And if people are fit if they're in good shape, one of my favorite things to do is to take them inside the ice. Into an ice cave..

"Hello welcome back to the show. My name is matt. My name is knoll. they called me. Ben we're joined as always with our super producer. Paul mission control deck. And most importantly you are you you are here and that makes this the stuff they don't want you to know we're going on a journey today. Fellow conspiracy realist. We are traveling too far north. We're headed to alaska. We are looking for a town. It's a place you could easily miss unless you knew exactly where you were going and you knew exactly what you're looking for. This is a story of disaster to story of death and some would. Have you believe it is a story of monsters. Today's question what happened to port. Lock alaska before we begin nat knoll. Ed you guys heard of this town before before. We started researching us. I had not when i first came upon the stuffing you know shared it around with everybody. I had never heard of it. I'd never even heard of the peninsula that we're gonna be talking about this. This whole area I i know nothing. I just know. it's frontier. It's alaska and i remember tiny bits of some of the history from. Do you remember that discovery show. That came out a long time ago. Then it was like it was the first fiction show. That discovery was making it was about. Alaska didn't our ceo connel burn has something to do with that back in his discovery days. I think so. I just remember i remember looking quite a bit of alaska around that time and just learning about how you think the american west as it was you know changing and as westerners were moving out to the west like how rough that was but then realizing just how tough it was to exist in alaska in the in those earlier times Seventeen hundred eighteen hundreds even the early nineteen hundreds. Well what was the impetus to settle out. There been like it seemed like so inhospitable was there was it about establishing trade or were there resources to exploit or a combination. Yeah both and then later. It became important and remains important geopolitical barrier during the days of the cold war alaska. Very very close to russia right and so it behooves the us at least in their calculations to have something between their continent and russia. This this place is inhospitable. it is still dangerous. Will probably alluded to this a couple times in today's episode but a few years back paul mission control night traveled to alaska in a believe was the first time for both of us. This was in the production of a show called missing in alaska which also centers around a mystery in the far north and Yeah it's it's very much on the edge of the wild in a way that many residents of the us would be unfamiliar with and would would perhaps find dangerous. But where did you guys travel to when you made the chirp. Yeah we were in anchorage. Alaska that's where that's the one of the easiest places to fly in and we landed there. We were there for about two weeks. And we were gathering gathering footage gathering tape gathering interviews and paul traveled to. I don't want to say too much. Without spoiling this story but paul and our host traveled to a incredibly remote location in alaska on the open ocean and to an island searching for a plane crash. Those are the teasers. The show is available for free on your podcast platform of choice smash that like in. Subscribe button or whatever legal sick days. I guess my my point is you. You guys have personal experience. Just being in alaska though. It is a massive place and specifically On an island so like experiencing the water like the shores and the water and how frigid and how dangerous that can be. Yes so it may surprise people to know that even in the modern day Life in many parts of alaska is at the mercy of nature in the passage of the seasons so there are times where the ocean may simply be a non navigable in certain parts right and there are for instance when we were out working on this. We were racing against time because we had seasoned experts and veterans pilots captains. Who were saying. Look i've been doing this for decades. And if x y z. Don't come together before this season. Then you're gonna have to wait another year and that's just that's just the reality of living with nature in a way that many people don't nowadays because the majority of human beings live in urban areas. But this this sets the stage just going to a very brutal place. Here are the facts. Nowadays port lock or what port lock used to be the site where port lock was located is abandoned. This was once a pretty bustling hive of activity at the very edge of the frontier. It is located as you said matt on very southern edge of something called the kenai peninsula is right in the closest town is a little bitty plays about sixteen miles to the north called sell dove. chaz distinctly nordic quality to the to the name And just to give you an idea of exactly how remote this place is. Sell dough via Only has around three hundred residents there. No roads leading in or out and it can only be reached by a small plane or boat because there's obviously airport so it has to be one of those planes that land on the water. If i'm not mistaken. Yeah and the same really goes for poor chatham or port lock. Where what we're talking about here and if you look at it on a map you guys. It's if it's at the edge of nowhere there's ocean there a few islands right outside of where it is like some tiny little islands. And there's you know some state parks around it and port graham d- and then like you said sedova and that's like that's it. It's it's it's incredible to imagine that people showed up there and started work to create any kind of living quarters or even a business. Yeah and the story already gets a little bit confusing. Because this place was known as port lock and a lot of people outside of alaska outside of this region will refer to it as port lock but people who live in the area often use. The free often used the import chatham interchangeably. That's because portland is located import chatham bay but there's another nearby community called poor chatham additionally there are a ton of places named ports something or other in alaska why this sounds a little weird at first cheers why it is important to remember modern exploration of the area by which we mean after people have been living there for thousands of years modern exploration. The area depended heavily on maritime transportation of resources and people. there were no planes..

"I could see tourists turning these questions over in their minds as they watched the glacier so even though i had not planned to do any reporting i started interviewing people using the only device i had available my phone. I i just think it's a shame that we are losing something pretty precious in pretty different in the world. This is dale singer. She and her family came to alaska on a cruise to celebrate a couple of family birthdays. This was a second trip to mendenhall. She came about nine years ago but the weather was so foggy. she couldn't get a good luck. She felt compelled to come back. I asked dale why she thought. The glacier was retreating global warming whether we like to admit it or not. It's our fault or something we're doing is affecting climate change others are not so sure for some of deals fellow passengers on a cruise. This is a touchy topic. Somebody just said they went to a lecture on the ship and the lecturer did not use the word global warming nor climate change because he didn't want to offend passengers so there are still people who refuse to admit it. I caught up with another tourist. I asked michael bull if he believed climate change was real. No i think there's global climate change. But i question whether it's all due to human interaction with with the earth. Yes you can't deny that the that the climate is changing. Yeah but the the causation of i'm not sold on. Espn our fault. Michael was worried. His tour bus might leave without him so he answered my question about whether the glacier's retreat was caused for alarm standing next to the idling bus. So what's the bad parts of the glacier receiving and you know from what john said to me If it's the rate that which and the earth candidate that makes sense to me but i i think the final story has yet to be written..

"Puffins and the horned puffins. These are charming birds with bold colorful markings on their bills and heads. I mean who doesn't love. Puffins right show me a man. Who doesn't like puffins. And i'll show you a man who really needs to take a good look in the mirror and ask himself. What have i become. When did stop finding joy in the world. Why am i such a miserable wretch and to repeat my earlier. Public service announcement. No bloody penguins in the arctic. Not one no penguins but luckily this lack of penguins is more than made up for by the multitudes of adorable ox so if the marketing geniuses at coca cola had only done their homework they could have made a series of biologically accurate commercials by showing polar bears. Palling around with toughens. Instead of penguins. Moving onto ptarmigan ptarmigan are chicken like birds in the family. Faizy entity chickens themselves are in the same family along with pheasants and turkeys and all of those sorts of guys. Ptarmigan are the sole members of the genus legos. There are only three ptarmigan species in the world. And you'll find them all in alaska. There's the willow ptarmigan rock ptarmigan and white tailed ptarmigan. These birds are superbly adapted for life in cold places. Their plumage is pretty much solid white in winter and their legs are fully feathered all the way down to their toes they also have scales on their toes. That helps spread their weight over the snow. So they have built in snowshoes. They also burrow in snow to keep warm at night or when the weather is especially frigid ptarmigan smolt in spring as the snow melts. They lose their white feathers to become a spec elite mottled brown or gray this makes them really well camouflaged in their shrub or rocky habitats. All three ptarmigan species are urban. And they really love to eat. The buds leaves and twigs of willows. These plump birds are pursued and devoured by a wide range of predators from arctic foxes. Wolverines and polar bears to jeer falcons snowy owls bald eagles and others thus a megan's need for good camouflage in both winter and summer. The willow ptarmigan legos. Legos is common throughout alaska and has a circumpolar distribution. It's actually the state bird of alaska. School kids in alaska voted in nineteen fifty five to choose the willow ptarmigan that was four years before alaska was even officially recognized as the forty ninth state. So i say those kids had their priorities right first. Things first birds are awesome so we better choose a state bird right away. Then we'll worry later about how to become a state and all that. I really love willow ptarmigan. They're good looking birds and they have a lot of personality and the male song is absolutely ridiculous and it's wonderful check this out. This is the song of the male. Willow ptarmigan the first part of the song is given in flight and it finishes as he lands. Tell me this isn't just a fantastic sound era. I i so. That's a little bit of natural history regarding alaska's birds. There's much more we could talk about. As always for example. I could go into the topic of conservation. Alaska's birds face many challenges especially with respect to climate change spoiler alert. It's mostly bad news but we'll have to save all that for another day. I'm trying desperately to keep this episode on the short side. Maybe you've been to alaska and you can remember seeing and hearing some of these wonderful birds. Or if you've never been to alaska. Maybe i've given you a taste of what it's like up there if you're into birds and birding and you also want to see charismatic mega-fauna like musk ox bears moose and wales. I think you'd have a great time exploring alaska. It's an incredible wild clicks. Thanks for listening today and going on a mental journey to alaska with me. I hope you learned something new.

"The birds don't understand each other. They are all just squawking and flapping their wings in frustrating effort to pantomime what they're trying to get across. The vagrant bird ends up as a stranger in a strange land. And who knows if it will ever find. It's way home again stay. Let's take a closer look now at a couple specific groups of birds that live in alaska to keep this episode from going on for hours and hours. I won't dig into every family of birds you'll find in alaska. I'm just going to single out a couple the tar megan's and the ox did he just say auks auks. I've heard there are musk. Oxen alaska is that what he means musk's but those aren't birds. I'm so confused. Yes there are. Musk oxen alaska. As i can attest from having recently seen those shambling beasts up close with my very own eyes they're super cool and their calves are insanely cute. But no i'm not talking about. Musk ox. I'm talking about ox a u. k. 's auks are all the birds in the family l. city these are the buffon's moore's murrelets audits guillemots and other such characters. They're chunky fish eating seabirds. That swim around underwater. Like miniature penguins. They aren't closely related to penguins at all. But they've evolved to have a similar lifestyle and appearance but unlike penguins auks can still fly. I'll do an entire episode on the family. Lcd at some point. But for now. I just want to point out. That alaska is kind of like auk heaven. There are about seventeen species found. They're not too shabby considering. There are only twenty four oc species. In the world these birds nest on alaska's rocky coastlines but spend the rest of the year far out to see the most famous of alaska's species are the tufted..

"And it's super important for the ecosystems of alaska shore birds and waterfowl play vital roles in the food webs of freshwater coastal and tundra ecosystems. They eat ungodly amounts of vegetation and invertebrate biomass. They fertilize the soil and water with their nitrogen. Rich droppings and of course they end up as meals for furry predators like foxes and weasels circle of life. And all that yada. Yada lots of migrant species spend the summer on the tundra or alaska's wetlands these are essential breeding habitats for migrant birds but there are also specific places along migratory pathways that are nearly as important on their long distance. Journeys migrants need to stop to rest and refuel. They do this predictably. In the same places year after year these places are called stopover sites or staging areas for example the copper river delta in south central alaska is an enormous wetland that serves as a stopover site for birds like western sandpiper and done when they stopped to feed on the mudflats of the delta before flying much farther north to their breeding territories. So why is alaska so attractive to migratory birds. Why do they bother flying. All that way to breed in far-flung seemingly desolate landscapes. Why not just stay in the tropics where everything is sort of more pleasant biologist have different hypotheses to explain this but in general it's thought that the habitats of the far north are great places for birds to breed because one there is an explosion of insect life every summer. This superabundance represents tons of food to feed growing chicks too. There's a lot of open space. Which means there might be less competition for nesting and foraging habitat three. The days are super long. So there's plenty of time for courtship nest building and finding food for your insatiable young ones and four compared to more tropical places. Birds breeding in high latitudes may also have fewer predators parasites and diseases to deal with..

"Any endemic species. The answer for alaska is yes. There is a grand total of one endemic bird in alaska and that is mckay's bunting plectrums phoenix hyper boreas. Mckay's bunting is a cute little songbird that lives on only two remote islands in the bering sea. It's a close relative of the snow. Bunting plectrums phoenix nevada. Both species are in the family call. Caridi which also includes the long spurs the ancestors of mckay's bunting were probably snow buntings who found themselves isolated on those islands at the end of the last glacial maximum when the sea level rose and drowned most of the land bridge that once connected eurasia and north america but interestingly most of these birds the mckays buntings fly to mainland alaska in the winter and return to their little islands to breed in summer. So it's not like they're isolated by an inability to fly long distances. Researchers have suggested that mackay's buntings maintain their genetic distinctiveness from snow buntings their closest relatives because the two species breed at different times even where their ranges overlap. We don't know a whole lot about the biology or the behavior of mckay's bunting but it does have one other claim to fame no other north. American songbird has plumage. That's as white as that of the male mckay's bunting it looks like a snowball magically came to life and started flitting around eating seeds and causing mischief. The field like this bird needs a cooler name but the name snow-bunting is already taken. And maybe you've heard of the movement to get rid of honorific bird names. You know birds named after some dude. So instead of mckay's bunting maybe we could go with bleached bunting or blizzard bunting or mcflurry bunting. I don't know something like that. As for the snow. Bunting that species gives us an example of another pattern..

"The trip was super awesome. My group and i explored keanae fjords national park denali national park and the remote region around the town of gnome in the far west in nome we were only about one hundred seventy five miles or two hundred and eighty kilometers from russia some birdsongs that created a sonic backdrop to our adventure in alaska included the song of the gray cheeked thrush and this is the golden crowned sparrow and. Here's the northern water thrush. We heard and saw lots of other great birds on our trip including some species that i had never encountered before for example i got to see my first king eider. Aleutian tern and blue throat. So how about we take a little field trip up to the great state of alaska to learn a few things about the birds. You can find their the low end. Welcome this is the science of birds. Am your host ivan philipson. The science of birds podcast is a lighthearted guided exploration of bird biology for lifelong learners before we dig into today's topic. I want to correct a little error. I made in the last episode. We were talking about the shoe bill in episode thirty and when we got around to reproduction in this species i had a momentary brain short-circuit. I said i was puzzled. Because if only one shoe bill chick per brood survives on average shouldn't issue bill population decline over time. But what i forgot was that duh. Shoe bills typically have multiple broods over the thirty to fifty years that they live if the pairs of shoe bills in population leave behind to offspring on average over their lifetimes. The population should be stable. More or less. I had been thinking in only the very narrow sense of a single breeding event. A single brood. I should have been thinking about the lifetime reproductive success of the breeding shoe bills. I credit an astute listener of this podcast with helping me realize my error..

We also have a huge nares midnights on race out of a lot of people come in for a marathon but they also have kids mile for that and and that happens in june and july. We have the fourth of july. We have a bear paw festival. Those kind of a small local bedroom community of anchorage that has all these fun games for kids and a weekend long us. Well that we have. And then there's another one called forest fair in gird. Which is the anchorage. And that's like it's really fair. That's in embedded in this force there because it's in a rainforest. The trees are really mossy and green and super cool. And they have you know kids can create their own arts and you know make their own alaska like where to take back and maybe work with one of our alaskan natives to make it. Then in august we have our state fair state fairs and palmer and that is just talking about a hometown. Feel to a to a fair. That is the alaska fair and great music. Grow vegetables again out values.

We have something that happens right in downtown every monday. It's called music for the for the little ones so they can bring in local artists and they play music in park at noon for every lunch hour. And there's my after five in town townsquare so there's always something going on in the summertime here which is beautiful. It just sounds like one visit isn't going to be enough. So i think i think i told you through email than the last one of i'll ask one of the four states that have yet to travel to and it sounds like i just need to get out of the mindset that it's going to be a one trip deal it seems like it needs to be multiple trip kind of deal so that's great maitree rob very true that people take up. Say about my gotta wait until eight to go to walk. Gotta wait and it's like why if anything we've learned this year is why wait maybe not make a big big lots of trip i dreamt of maybe make it a smaller portions. You know absolutely well. We've talked a little bit about this and someday seeing. We're not gonna have to talk about this at all hopefully but understanding that we're still in the cove error and that it's affected some of the traditional travel to like we mentioned cruising what covert restrictions are in place that travellers should be aware of when when they're traveling to alaska absolutely and a great resource is the website increase dot net. Because we're constantly keeping it up to davis so far we kind of have the same coleman restrictions starting as we have remained open throughout all of. Its let's start with that for once. Everything started shutting down. We figured out as a state. How can we stay open in a safe manner. And we used to require a the. Pcr cova pest..

I think this is kind of our this movie. We consider goto or they're looking super unique place to say it's called the sheldon chalet. Actually go by helicopter. And you land in dodge stealth amp theater of the nollie. Like you're right there in mount denali. Yeah you're right there on ruth glacier your ten miles from the summit was offered on shape chalet. I think maximum people as pen you have gourmet meals during the day of the aurora of you and you talk about the roy. Viewing there is spectacular. And then you can go snowshoeing ice climbing his hand just depending on what time of year it is so truly spectacular and that's called a sheldon schley and then we have other locally owned lodges such as like within the wild to unique law which is right at the entrance of the locker range and they have been doing tax day which is not a homer so just depends on that mountain where you're looking for that water. Get away with a gourmet chef. She is a renowned chef here and still cook for you and how different lessons there too but then again all the you know outdoor experiences. You want from those. And that's just the name a few. I could go on and on and on. We have lots i always say. What do you want to see your accommodations. There's a lot of people like. Oh i want high end experience. We we say our high end hotels hear more about the experience then the the linens and the fancy table you know stuff yes exactly now getting out door than they experienced even have at different logical. It sounds like if you're going to alaska the name of the place you're staying should have lodged the title. That's just me all of them. Do for you're either going to be larger cabins. Ooh can do a cabinet. And i'm like well. You can have a dry cabin if he really wanted to not have any running water but we also have these amazing beautiful cabins. Have everything you need in this wilderness. That he did. You sounds amazing. Well circling back to cruising for just a second. I know we're still at a standstill with the with the major shifts but has small ship. Cruising has that resumed in alaska. We do have a couple of small ships that will resume. So there's one called on cruise lost and alaska dream cruises that we know we also know lynn blasted going to be operating their cruises as well. Those are kind of the three that we know for sure are operating and or hoping a femoral be attitude that we're just that large ship at the florence porn black owned just not offer with the canadian border in close right with the still gives people an option if they absolutely want to cruise into the a which again just seen some pictures and video of cruising alaska's just looks like a once in a lifetime experience and it is and we do have either if they come and do just land package.
