"Andalusian white town kind of look. Yeah, that's right. And as we come outside the cathedral, there's a very beautiful fountain that is the saint Mary's fountain and it's from the 1500s. That fountain is the symbol of the city of baeza. So if you ever see anything about bias, they always have the photo there or it's the symbol of the city. And then just down from there, we've got a very old building that is the university of baeza, and then still a little bit further down the street. We have the palacio of Hubble quinto that used to be the university by far as well. And it's actually the most stunning building and it was a noble man's palace and then it became the university and I believe now it's a high school. But we were told it well, sorry, you're in the other one. I'm in the wrong way. Exactly. Well, there's two parts of the university in one was a palace as well that was built that was given as a wedding gift. And that's the other piece, not the one that's the high school that's now in international university. Yeah. And I still thought that's got to be the prettiest high school I've ever seen. The old university building. But the interesting thing for me was the inscriptions in red on the outside of the university. And I was told something different from what you told me, you filled in some knowledge that I didn't have because we were told that this was graduates of the university, but I got a simplified version. What was I missing? Yeah, so these old inscriptions on the university facade and also these inscriptions are visible in other places, such as Salamanca and in Grenada. We have some on the royal chapel, and basically these are graffiti for people who have graduated from a university in the celebrating and they want to kind of mark the date that they graduated, but rather than it being every single student that graduated, the only people who did that were sons of very prominent people are the wealthy people who are influential people at the time. So it would have been bourgeoisie at the least. And their sons marking their graduation for everybody to see like a public announcement almost, but then it's there for history. So rather than clean it up, they've been left as historical inscriptions, but these are very recent compared to the age of the building. I mean, they're not the 17th century, probably 18th century. Bread. Oh, one thing that we didn't say with the cathedral that's worth going into if you go back into the sacristy of the cathedral, so where they store the vestments, the thing that priests wear and some of those things they have a wonderful old book collection, including some large illustrated music manuscripts that were for the choir because every member of the choir didn't have their own music. It was just too expensive. So a pretty little area in the back of the cathedral worth going into. Excellent. I didn't know about that. There you go. Anything else we should cover in bye. Yes, so in the bias that we need to cover the platter, they constitute Theon. This main square used to be a marketplace, and so it's a large esplanade or a large open space, which is where the car, if you just arrived to buy it, this parking spot around there, and there's a bandstand, and if there's anything going on like the town fair or any special event, it nearly always is on there. And around that area, there are restaurants and bars and terrorists as well and some shops. And it's also worth mentioning because it's the heart of the city center. Excellent. Now you have a couple other spots that you wanted to cover in high end that I have not been to. Yes, that's right. Well, the thing is the province of a high end is quite big, and there's lots of places, but places that I find as a special interest would be, for example, alcala la real. Now alcala real has, you were saying that high end was the border between Christian and Muslim. Kingdoms. Well, alcala real is always been a border town between Granada and Cayenne. And that town has been contested many times over history and sometimes it's been belonging to one province and sometimes to another, and it has a very important fortress, which is called fortress of lamotta. Alcala is on the way to Grenada. The mocha fortress, you can see it for a really like whichever way you come on the road, you can see it's very white and very imposing on the land. And it's a 13th century castle. They always have a lot of things going on there, like they have activities and festivals and in the summer they do like a medieval market and yeah, it's really worthwhile visiting. Alcala la real the actual town. Not just to talk about its castle or its fortress. It is also worthwhile because it's a little bit like a small bay far. They've got some nice architecture. It's very untouched by tourism, locals are there, the food is very good. And in summer, they have a festival where they're doing like nighttime concerts and things like that and yeah, it's an interesting and new visual destination to visit, but usually with a lot of cultural activities, particularly on weekends. And then the last place I would like to mention in high end is banya stay in thena, which is the place where the bull galley more castle is, which is the oldest castle in Europe. And Bulgaria Mara is absolutely impeccably preserved. And when you're in the castle, you can see on one side like the river and the mountains and on the other side you can see the town, and it's.

"All actually have answers. So yeah, go for it. I generally don't want physical things to enter my life anymore. You know, I live in Manhattan. It's not a palace. You know, just casual flex. You live in Manhattan. In New York City, I could be more vague. There isn't a ton of storage. I'm reorging as you can tell by the chair. So I don't usually buy physical music at the end of every year when I make my top ten list. I then go and I pay for all that music in case I have not over the course of the year. So I do buy music every year to support the albums I love. But in I think it was, it was not July. It was June. It was over the summer. I was in Vermont and I went to two LP shops there shout out Ben cesario and the vinyl revolution story. I bought a stack of singles, mostly Madonna singles, things of that nature. Old pop stuff. Nothing new. Nothing from the century, but I spent like a 130 bucks at both stores. Wow. Yeah. They were happy to see me. I bet. Good answer. Okay, here's my answer. I don't actually know if this was early 2021 or late 2020. There is a very hole in the wall used record and CD store near me. I'm not super near me, but like a long walk from my house. And it's very dusty. I don't know if it's open anymore. It's very dusty. It's the lighting cerebral piles and piles and piles of completely disaggregated stuff of all genres all styles and all formats. But every now and again, when I would go in there, you could tell that they had just bought out. You know whether it's like a record store or some DJ's collection because there'd be a cluster of a particular kind of thing. So many years ago, I bought a bunch of very arbitrary rap promo CD singles from the mid 90s, one of which I later sold on discogs for like $90. Are you allowed to are you allowed to say this stuff? I absolutely was not sent to me. Blame the first blame the person who dropped it off at that store. Probably like someone that we work with or no. I definitely I definitely was like scouring those labels to be like, where's the name on them? Because I definitely know this person. But in the most recent trip, they had very clearly either bought out or gotten a dump of Spanish language CDs. Mexican Colombian, et cetera, et cetera. And the covers, they're mostly mixes. They don't look super official. The covers are incredible. So I've got a stack of 8 CDs from them. They were probably about two to $3 each. I'm looking at madrassas, Sony darrows, 2001, looking at es quadron M 19 Columbia, to save, is the name of the albums, a very vibey cover, big vest energy on this uncover. Alcala de la cumbia, dwen they mix two, and this is music of Peru, Argentina and Mexico, la Banda mix from DJ Aztec. Some of these I have listened to some of these I've yet to listen to. It is largely mayhem ish dance adjacent or club adjacent. Cool. Great bye. Truly, I would have bought the entire crate. There were probably two to 300 CDs. And I just, you know, at a certain point, I was just picking based off covers because I didn't recognize any of the names. I look forward to you spending a little bit of your booklet of making a SoundCloud mix out of this. The best of this stuff. Yes. That's every time I take a break from sitting at my desk. I'm gonna walk back to that store and just slowly leach them one or two CDs at a time. And then make us a blend. Yes, absolutely. Sean, there's your answer. I hope that was satisfactory. I hope we pass the vibe check. Moving on, Halsey. Yeah. So Halsey put out a record this year. We have not talked about it on podcast. We have two questions. About the Halsey record, shivani gold and Amanda prevent beam, both essentially asking what we think and Amanda said, I feel like on one episode last year, the consensus was Halsey's close to making a great album, was this it? Also, Halsey is using they them pronouns. If people are not aware, I have an opinion about this, but I'm fairly certain the only opinion that's allowed to be broadcast on podcast is Karen Gans. Karen Gans, Halsey's album, if I can't have love, I want power. That's dark. That's very dark. That's a dark algun title. What's the vibe? It's the album of the year, John. What? It's my number one. It is really. You put a guess that. If we just break it down into its component parts. Okay, yeah, so justify each of those four versions for me. I mean, I'm not going to ask you for your list now because it's too early, and I know you haven't started doing it yet. EST G plus 9. I was gonna say yes CG and Halsey fighting for hardest album of the year. Real fit. Okay, Karen, bring it down, bring it down, 'cause I do, I actually do have lots of walls, rock, and I listen to it, knowing that I was going to have to face this question. Okay, well, I have a couple of points but I'm going to make them briefly and then we can all chat as group, but if we just purely very gracious fancy listen, I'm just trying to conduct this orchestra guys. If we are to break this down to its component parts, what could be more Gans core? Then the sound of this register voice we're calling back to the female fronted pop punk that I enjoyed of the actually Simpson Avril Lavigne variety from the earlier part of this century. Oh, yeah. Glenn did with a darker, often guitar centric, sometimes sense centric, brooding, thudding, fascinating, sonic component. And on top of that, this is a spectacularly sequenced album. You know, that's something that I'm very focused on. I couldn't believe how what was sequenced the first time through. And I've tried to sort of pick up in the middle. I have a couple of favorite songs, and it really, it doesn't even work. I have to go back to the beginning every single time. I honestly think this might.

One of them john was actually my fiance at the time and surveillance expert and i had worked on a uniform or squad for about a year a new case. Pretty well we needed expertise in both cases history and surveillance because john and i were going undercover in order to gather evidence about a man named ted kaczynski so our bus thought canada. John would be perfect because they'll look like a normal couple when they go undercover so sunday afternoon. The day we were set to leave. I started packing. I went down to the basement.

"Web at the Schmidt dot or g'kar. I'm Peter Sagal. A new era began this week with the inauguration of Lady Gaga. I mean, I think I was scrolling Twitter at the same time. Join us for the news quiz from NPR this morning at 11 and W. N. Y C. This is weekend edition from NPR News. I'm Scott Simon. 17 people were executed in the United States and 2020 and three in Donald Trump's final days in office. But the number of executions in the U. S has been in sharp decline since capital punishment was reinstated in 1976. Except in Texas. 570 men and women, more than a third of the number of people put to death since the death penalty returned. Have been put to death in Texas. Reshma, staff writer for the Marshall Project has written a book about the effect of the death penalty. In the lives of those who prosecute sentence and live and die by it. Let the Lord sort them the rise and fall of the death penalty. Reached Yama joins us now from Austin. Thanks so much for being with us. Thank you for having me. No, There's no easy answer to this. But why his Texas stood apart. Do you think it's a complex story? One piece of the puzzle is that the more you carry out executions Theo easier it is to do, and it creates a kind of what one scholar calls a muscle memory, right? More than that. I found that there was a kind of deeper cultural explanation. Whenever I would interview people about the death penalty in Texas, there was sort of make these references to a kind of old frontier myth. Kind of thing You would imagine seeing in a Western movie as a justification for this sort of deep cultural attachment that we have to the punishment. What? Ask about some of the people you're right about. Elsa Alcala, famed prosecutor. A judge on the Court of Appeals respected Republican or used to be Tell us about her experience and how it affected the evolution ever thinking? Sure, she came from a poor family in Kingsville, Texas, and throughout the nineties, she thought the sword waves of urban crime. She sent several men to death row. She learned all of the skills in how to convince Juries. But then Elsa got older, you know, is a very common career path to become a judge. But as she started ruling on the appeals of death row inmates, she started to see sort of problem. Systemic problems sort of across many cases, and that the ways the courts were ruling on these cases were allowing executions that she felt violated the Constitution. I thought that the way in which she came to see all of the problems that marked the system were Illustrative of the way that many Americans have kind of come to turn away from the death penalty and see these larger problems and question whether it's the right punishment for some of these murders. And I won't ask you about Carol Picket Death. House Chaplain worked nearly 100 executions. That's right. So I open the book with a scene in which Pickett was tasked in 1982 with working on executions, and the warden tells him your job is going to be to seduce the emotions of the prisoner. And I found this phrase very troubling and He kind of found this role where, On the one hand he wanted to comfort the man who was going to be executed and sort of give him some peace in his final hours, But at the same time, he knew that in doing that, It would actually make it easier on the system. It would make it so that the prisoner was less likely to fight back to cause some sort of scandal. That would be an embarrassment for the war dinner. The governor, I mean, you talk about Fred Allen, the tie down team. So pick it was part of ultimately a kind of team of executioners. There were men who would come in and strap the body of the man who was going to be executed to the gurney. There was someone else who would drive the body away in a hearse, you know, from the execution chamber, and each of these men had to really kind of reckon with what they were doing. And Fred Allen was an example of someone who really kind of broke down. He eventually went to chaplain Pickett and said, You know, I don't understand why I'm you know, seeing the faces of these people every night and I'm you know, just Bursting into tears and shaking, and there's something truly truly traumatizing about seeing so many deaths. Karla Faye Tucker. Think the name is still known. Committed a horrible crime killed a woman with a pick ax. She said. I'm going to read her words. If my execution is the only thing that can fulfill the demand for restitution and justice, then I accept that. She became very religious. She became if I might put it this way, a wholesome influence. In prison. It raises the question, even for people who who support the death penalty. Is the person being executed the same person who committed the crime. That's right. And in case after case you know, because the appeals last for so long, the person being executed is much older and has come to a certain amount of wisdom about what they did at a younger age. This is assuming there's not a kind of severe mental illness or or something else. But she had transformed so vividly. She appeared on Larry King Live Governor George W. Bush. Although he didn't spare her life through clemency, he admitted openly to being very troubled by her case. There were also interesting dynamics and troubling dynamics around gender that I tried to explore. You know, multiple people told me, I think had it been a black man, for example, who Converted to Christianity and made this sort of public pitch about remorse. It might not have landed quite as spectacularly as dramatically as it did for this white woman. You know, there was a lot going on in that case, and I think that a lot of the ideas evoked by that case sort of started the long march towards the decline and what will Probably eventually be the end of the death penalty in the US, I mean, we we should explain. She was in fact executed. She was executed. Yeah, 1998..
