Here's how to support and celebrate Seattle's first-ever Black Restaurant Week

"There Seattle restaurant week and how this works is hundreds of restaurants in the city participate. They have a special three course menu with a set price, And this is all designed to lower diners in But this week is Black Restaurant Week, which is also a marketing campaign to encourage people to eat and black owned rest. Drawn. But the founders of Black Restaurant week which they're based in Houston, actually, but they have expanded out to the whole country, said that a lot of restaurants that are owned by black people don't have these fancy menus and three course menus, so they were always being left out. So I spoke with Reginald Robinson. He owns Alphas, Louisiana, Cajun seasoning and spices in tents, and he decided to open his Alien store because he's from New Orleans. And he couldn't find any of the foods and products that he misses. Red beans and rice are greens, Po boys, catfish, We have alligator. We have the stuff called Boo Dan. We have crawfish and everything in our story is have that Louisiana brand to it. Gonna top sellers is familiar at being because you know, everybody On Mondays they cooked red beings down in Louisiana just to start. Thing they do. Sometimes we even bring blueberry ice cream here. Anyone down south Texas, Louisiana, Mississippi, your eyes light up. People be like, Oh, my God, you have bluebell. So Fallon Farrell, who is one of the founders of Black Restaurant week, she says, Because it's systemic racism, it could be harder for a black person to get a bank loan when they're opening a restaurant. The issued in our community is that a lot of businesses a started with people's personal savings credit cards. Usually when they do get loans. They have higher interest rates, so they just don't have that financial will go room. It's really sustained major hits to a business and so you know, a lot of them really weren't able to get the first round of P P p loans and She says, because of the marketing that happens when they do black restaurant week. They really do bring new customers. And I think last year the average ourselves increases about 30% most businesses. CIA, increasing their social media following us well And then when we talk about ongoing business opportunities, people call us all the time. They because all the time about like, Hey, we're hosting a food truck festival. Give me your list of black on food trucks, You know, so it just creates ongoing business opportunity. So the cool thing is, we kind of talked businesses like Welcome to the network because we're always able to push back our opportunities for you. So I thought to Reginald about if he wants to be identified as a black owned business, you know, at this point, there are a lot of women who say I don't want to be the best female stuff. Can I just be the best chef and I wondered if Reginald just wanted to be a business. Until people realized that you know everybody's equal. You may have to do that so we can get attention. But my whole dream is that you just treat black restaurants just like you a tree. Another restaurant. People don't believe it. But as black owned business, you have to go that extra mile. Just to prove what other people don't have to go through, and that's my dream and hopes one day did. We don't have to do that. It is black History month. That's why I thought that it would be a great opportunity to do this story. I don't have it online yet. But in about an hour if listeners go to my northwest dot com slash Rachel Bell, you can find a directory of black businesses in the region on Deacon Go. We don't support local businesses because they all need your money right now.

Why Do Things Seem Scary In The Dark?

"This is but why a podcast for curious kids from from public radio. I'm the host of the show. Jane lindholm on this podcast. We take your questions about anything really anything and we find interesting. People help offer you some answers. Sometimes your questions are easily answered by someone with just the right knowledge. They are questions with fact based answers like why are some eggs brown and some white or green or blue. We've tackled that question and the answer is really interesting but sometimes your questions don't have precise answers. Sometimes there are many answers or none. Even sometimes we need to find people who can offer you advice or their opinion or maybe just a new perspective. That's the kind of question and topic we're tackling today. A lot of you have been sending us questions about something that makes you scared. My name is scout. i am eight years old. I live in air massachusetts. My question is why do you think seem more scary in the dark even though they are the same things you see when it's light by my name is logan from jericho vermont. I'm five years old and my question is why do people have fear of dark. Hi my name is the nineteen years old. They with celtic can't for me. Why am i the the see what i mean. That's a tricky thing to answer. So we're going to tackle this in two ways today later in the episode. We'll go for a hike in the dark with a wildlife biologist. To get a sense of the things you can learn from going out into the darkness and to answer non-scary questions about how animals see at night but first we thought we'd talk to someone who not only shared the fear of the dark that some of you have when he was a child but who has embraced fear and made writing scary books his job. I am dental hambur. I am best known for books that i write the name. Lemonade stick it specifically the thirteen volumes. A series of unfortunate events. You also wrote a block a really lovely picture book about a fear of the dark. I did yes. I think it's funds right picture books about things we might otherwise be afraid of. So i've written the picture book about words. My most recent picture book is about a swarm of bees and then there is the dark which is about being afraid of the dark. So let's tackle some of the questions that our listeners have for you here and about their own. Existential fear of the dark surly moneymatters. Truman and i live in bethlehem pennsylvania. My name is don need. I live in saint. John's barre vermont ever gopi and on to know why people are scared of the dark wires. Swim people afraid of the dark upgrade up to dr the question that everybody has why. Why are we afraid of the dark and i think the short answer is because the dark terrifying. Oh good thanks for putting us at for most of us are visual senses very important to us and when that visual senses take it away it can be extremely disorienting. And so if we're used to seeing something and measuring our way through the world physically and emotionally with the blessing of site which most of us are lucky enough to have in form or another it being taken away is very terrifying and also it allows the brain wander and then your brain wanders to things that might not otherwise occur to you so if you're walking through your house in the daytime you think to yourself. I wonder if someone has somehow let an alligator in that has underneath the sofa and it's waiting to get to get me you would never think high noon but in the middle of the night. If you wake up you need a glass of water or the opposite. The first thing that will occur to you as i'm wondering what horrible beast has somehow very silently gotten its way into my otherwise harmless home that example sprang to mind awfully quickly. Maybe you have had similar fears yourself. Of course yes. I have a creaky wooden floor. Near where i sleep and when i walk on it in the middle of the night i can assume that the creeks are covering up the talons or the smacking of lips or something else that some terrible creature is Is grateful for the camouflage.

Incredible swimmers will be in the boat coming near one in the almost do like a a dolphin dolphin. Jump at the to walk over and death roll themselves back into the water. They get so scared of being around human. Oh okay by. The by researchers have studied the death roll behavior and i just spent way too long reading two thousand seven journal of experimental biology article titled death role of the alligator mechanics of twist feeding in water and involved a slow motion video of a few dozen baby alligators. Who had wooden coffee. stir sticks at. I'm gonna to your money that they were stolen from starbucks but they were taped to their baby gator tales to figure out that when they roll the arms i guess they have arms and legs talk in like a figure skater spinning like a top and their tails angle out like an l. also. The paper said spinning mechanism that can tear apart large prey by subjecting the tissue to torsion all stresses animals and their tissues. It continues are week in torsion. Which if you just pictured an animal or being shredded in a bog right now. You're not alone if you are alone. please hug yourself and actually tell me a little bit about their diet. If you don't mind kylie caramba. Elena reynolds both wanted to know about diet. Noah sullivan wanders know are the picky eaters. Bailey wanted to ask has evolution affected what they eat and a ton of people and gb samantha. Heineke monica and l. Mccall all wanna first time question. Oscar be asked.

Who has apparently asked people giving swamped boat tours.

And then the lasso is tied off to either a tree or a steak And so they're able to just kind of like hide in the water or go onto land once they get trapped. But that's when you're like doing it. It's very simple surprisingly. It's kind of a bigger scale operation as maybe like a lizard last suing in the field. Exactly right it's literally yes. One hundred percent is literally like they just go through. The lasso tightens up. Once they get the bay. You know there should be some kind of rube goldberg where that triggers.

How This Bitcoin Rally Is Different From 2017-2018

"One month ago. That coin was it about eleven thousand five hundred dollars and today it's flirting with eighteen thousand dollars and even when as high as eighteen thousand four hundred dollars and wednesday based on that. Hi there were only four days in bitcoin history when the price was higher and yet back then that increase was fueled by the initial coin offering craze in this breathless media coverage an issue runners. A lot less fanfare barely talking about it. So what would you say makes this increase in the price. Different from what we saw in late. Two thousand seventeen in early twenty yeah. There's a few things that are completely different this time. Around endogenously. the markets the structure of the market is totally different and the market infrastructure has evolved and changed dramatically. That's obviously our focus is a fondest financial market Structure and i can tell you that it is completely different this time around. It's much more mature. It's more sophisticated There's just more financial products available and there's more tools that qualified accredited large investors can use to get exposure. So that's you know it's one side which is just practically in infrastructurally speaking it's easier to get exposure to the market today And you know that looks a lot more mature and just generally speaking financial plumbing. His is more functional time around and then of course extra you have real macroeconomic tailwinds which are driving serious alligators towards allocators. Sorry towards the asset like real names and commodity investing the hedge fund world a global macro names who obviously we've heard them expressing a positive view of the price that latter element probably gets a little bit more attention. I'd say the former. Those dodges factors also very critical. I can't say that our current appreciation or rally is directly attributable to that. But it certainly means that we have the capacity onboard much more capital in a shorter period of time. And the other thing that i would mention as you say is that bitcoin was kind of being used as a flow through asset for retail investors primarily to get exposure to isos onto tokens and to trade sort of long 'til on some of these offshore exchanges and bitcoin was their entrance into the market. So a lot of the allocation of bitcoin was really transient. And that's partly why. I think we saw so much reflexively in the price and it's rally was not very enduring back in two thousand seventeen now. Of course the backdrop is different. There's last mania. This fewer new tokens launching. I think the regulators generally discouraging people from launching new isos in the manner that they didn't twenty seventeen and so bitcoin isn't being used in that capacity anymore. So you know it's easy to look at the price chart and see passes prologue. You know what's different today. I think if you look a bit deeper you look at the nature of the market. It really is dramatically different. So you did briefly. Mention the pandemic. And i'm sure this is kind of hard to quantify but i just wondered you know how big do you think. The impact of the pandemic has been on the rise of the bitcoin price this year. Well i wouldn't say directly affected but indirectly for sure. I mean first of all. Bitcoin is kind of a d. Materialized natively digital asset like a lot of those companies that are very sort of capital light. That did very well. During the pandemic era said bitcoin also benefited from that in terms of physical infrastructure. But it's completely distributed doesn't really rely. It's not interfered with by the pandemic directly and then on a more direct basis. I would say the action of central banks to the crisis is probably the big phenomenon. That's fueling bitcoin here. We're seeing people like to say on. Precedent really unprecedented monetary action. Someone say the sort of degeneration of the current sort of monetary orthodoxy. M one that measure of money supply and the us is growing at forty percent. Annualized right now. So we're seeing the monetary aggregates skyrocket in more so than not because you know quantitative easing money issuance. It doesn't necessarily have an impact on cpr prices and the real economy but we are seeing calls for more direct stimulus directly into the economy. Which would presumably be more inflationary in nature. Which would make it into the real economy which was not the case with previous bounce of qb so if that is the case if we have another six or twelve months of lockdown. I think we could really start to see a political demand for direct issuance. Issued in a kind of a fiscal capacity. And many believed that that could be natively more inflationary and of course as a hard asset and an asset with no monetary discretion. Bitcoin is something that people look to as an alternative in that circumstance so really remains to be determined whether get inflation or not but certainly the specter of inflation is looming. And i think that's part of the reason people are taking

I think the regulators generally discouraging people from launching new isos in the manner that they didn't twenty seventeen and so bitcoin isn't being used in that capacity anymore. So you know it's easy to look at the price chart and see passes prologue. You know what's different today. I think if you look a bit deeper you look at the nature of the market. It really is dramatically different. So you did briefly. Mention the pandemic. And i'm sure this is kind of hard to quantify but i just wondered you know how big do you think. The impact of the pandemic has been on the rise of the bitcoin price this year. Well i wouldn't say directly affected but indirectly for sure. I mean first of all. Bitcoin is kind of a d. Materialized natively digital asset like a lot of those companies that are very sort of capital light. That did very well. During the pandemic era said bitcoin also benefited from that in terms of physical infrastructure. But it's completely distributed doesn't really rely. It's not interfered with by the pandemic directly and then on a more direct basis. I would say the action of central banks to the crisis is probably the big phenomenon. That's fueling bitcoin here. We're seeing people like to say on. Precedent really unprecedented monetary action. Someone say the sort of degeneration of the current sort of monetary orthodoxy. M one that measure of money supply and the us is growing at forty percent. Annualized right now. So we're seeing the monetary aggregates skyrocket in more so than not because you know quantitative easing money issuance. It doesn't necessarily have an impact on cpr prices and the real economy but we are seeing calls for more direct stimulus directly into the economy. Which would presumably be more inflationary in nature. Which would make it into the real economy which was not the case with previous

Storylines from Roland Garros 2020

"Everyone John, we're up here in this week's sports illustrated tennis podcast late Wednesday night we have reached the round of four. We've reached the semi. Draws so Jamie and I will talk some tennis from Roland Garros and. We would try to keep it sufficiently general. So the school be absolutely by the time you're listening Jamie how are you? I'm good. How are you from a little little cold but no complaints it's been spin. French Open like no other, it's been an interesting interesting time so far but you know the the good news is Kobe hasn't really become the story, and if we're talking about the chilly weather and not a global pandemic, that's a win in itself. In here, we are at the business end of our second major in four weeks. You're cold or office cold. I think some other players are cold I think joke just cold I've seen a lot of PARKAS. I actually double check the weather temperature today because I said, how cold is it? Really there people are inferred jackets and you know Winter Winter Parkas I think some people look like they're going skiing. Is it really that cold I? Mean you're you have survived many New York winters what's going on? Oh boy I'll say a few things. One of them is that whatever the temperature is it is that an accurate indicator is has that sort of British chill where you're. Just coal to the bones. You know I mean obviously for for athletes it's it's different. You're running around your your body's warming up than stopping as rob pointed out I think some of this is just what people are accustomed to. There's a part of me that doesn't mind it. You know we we played tennis in extreme conditions or extreme heat must failure I think it probably speaks well of the sport that same players that win when it's one hundred twenty degrees or winning when it's forty nine degrees. I would say that I think this has had a bit of an impact, not so much on the level of play but I don't think the caliber of play has dropped because everybody is. Dressed like they're going skiing I think it hasn't changed the mood in the vibe and we've got Novakova did and it's it's just funny how these tournament sort of change as they progress but there there is not been as far as i. can tell a whole lot of Kobe fear doesn't seem to be much of the talk it doesn't come up much in press conferences. Does, players like Daniel Collins shoot it down, but it's been if this is not the French Open that people are used to and I thought at the US Open the apparel manufacturers missed a golden opportunity not to do more with the surface area of these masks. Why not put a? Cough alligator or Nike swoosh mask, and here it's time to show off the winter gear in the Lacoste and Nike. And Adidas Park aware because as soon as the vitamins you've seen like as soon as the players. Get done leaving the court they as a record it Patrick of did it they all put on Ski Jack So It's been a twist on the tournament but again I mean. For the last six months you and I have been talking about. Bubbles and pandemics, and how are we going to get athletes from all over the world? Into into a common spot. And the fact that the talk has been a lot about. Tennis and conditions and scheduling and doubles and singles in wide open draws. And not about players tested positive I think is a good sign. For sure. I wanted to ask you I was reading and piece by CPS ignore and he he said that you know it was about the handshakes in about, of course, how they're really not happening anymore the racket touch. is now has now replaced it, and so I actually thought twenty because in the past few matches, we've actually seen some players after you know after the match in in the t match, he did it and there was some others where you know. They go to the night in a do this very strange hesitant high five or maybe there is a little bit of an embrace and course you sit there and you cringe and you say, oh no, they're touching each other amino they're so close I talk about Kobe and all this What is Of the players talked about the handshake what about you just watching? On my end I feel like You know a lot of after really great matches long matches. It's nice to see two opponents kind of embrace each other or just kind of you know pat each other on the back for for a hard-fought match and we don't see that what what are your thoughts on on just the lack of handshakes in this cova time. Yeah. You see handshakes like if you have. I have this thing where like I'll watch an old movie your you'll cringe and say, no social distance, oh. Yes. This was a bill before March of twenty twenty. So, yeah you see these these. Sort of belly paths or the even the on the shoulder at the you know the net you know I, mean I always loved the handshake I recited would've tennis is nice quirks. You spend hours battling with this opponent, and then the very first person you bake human contact with is that same opponent When Ron Swanson say about handshakes after the for dry and. In three seconds or something like that it's it's great. Now I mean the racket tap is a little bit strange in some players are are not even doing that other players are as as you know, there are have been a couple of exceptions. Dominant team seems to be a a serial offender which probably ultimately speaks well of him and it has has actually gone gone the hand I. He did what after the US Open finally did there were some some contact against Schwartzman I. Don't know I feel at some level you've been. You've been hitting a sweaty tennis ball back and forth for three hours at your opponent is touch. you know none of us are perfectly convicted and our Kobe protocol and the same person who watches groceries is. Also holding the poll on the subway. Think I think we all have a inconsistencies. I have to think if you've been using the same tennis ball as as another opponent and your bodily fluid is getting on that same tennis ball I don't know if you brush palms at the net for a second to is that really so bad but yeah. I mean there are a lot of sort of jarring little twists I mean the lack of a crowd I think has been especially acute here in France especially when French players have taken the court because often the the fans try to impose themselves on the match here Dan. Is it really happening? it'll be interesting to see what stays in what doesn't I mean if I never see another ball kid and all towel again, that's that's probably a good thing It's very strange doing a courtside interviewed a math. It'll be interesting to see I mean I think we're already sort of looking to twenty twenty, one I suspect there will be him shakes at the twenty twenty one Australian Open because the players will of quarantine for two weeks and essentially what what I'm wants the players were there. And test negative in are in this this quarantine situations that they they don't even have to wear masks

Why are humpback whales getting stuck in rivers?

"Say the least as it's the first known instance of this happening. The first little these animals up to as much as twenty kilometers up a river up in the northern territory and USTRALIA dissipated pitchy here we're talking murky muddy waters and so when I first saw the picture of Humpback Whale, which is an oceanic spacey's in this murky water, it was something that was a phenomenal thing thought sydney-based marine scientist Vanessa at PIRATA. Now, two of the whales is thought have since swam back out to sea but at least one remains in the river and the worries if stranded in the shallow water, is it going to be able to get out? So the main reason that the probably in there is well, I should point out this has never happened before, but maybe one of the animals took. A wrong turn and ended up in this area thumbed back wiles generally in the Kimberley region, which is northwest of Australia H. and every year to breed and have their babies, and now say time to be hitting Beck South dant Antarctica where they're going to spend the summer fading. Let's hope that this one reminding while has the opportunity to do just that being a. Tidal River is rather different to being in the sea. So how might the whale be doing? Do you sound to to listen and to vocalise to talk about now this whale because in on Acre located may be reliant on visual cues. So simply having a little look around or trying to say where there's a space to soon that's that site side there's a whole. Number of things that would probably be going through this wiles mind and without ends Promo fighting it'll putting a human spin on it on show that this animal might be doing circles or at least on. Friday. There'll be a tame going up just to have another look at it just to say what it's doing and to see if it's made any progression in its movements. strumming is a real risk and up in the Northern Hemisphere Southampton University's Clive. Truman, told me why this is dangerous for a whale watch would want to be supporting with the weight of the organs and the way to the animal. So when it strands that can compress the lungs and undamaged into Logan's same time if a while is stuck and tide is coming in and out almost paradox. Can Drown because it can lift itself off of the the bite can then water can get into the blowhole and drown. So what tools to scientists have available to encourage twelve plus meet away? Oh, to do anything, there's a couple of examples that I could run through one being creating a physical barrier with farts. So the animal was simply move away with type in some cases that hasn't worked in the past where the animal is simply gone onto bites you could use acoustics such as banging on physically banging on vessels, which is really nice for a while some have suggested using kilowatt playback sounds, which is the Predator of the humpback whales but again, a Lotta, these are potentially guttering juice stress our. Expert, team will have to y out what options are potentially going to be put on the table to see if it's worth inducing these kinds of reactions to then have a favorable result, which would be the animal turning directions and heading out to say as the name of the river suggests the whale isn't the only thing in east alligator river. Clive again. It folktales of fantastic animals extremely intimidating, but probably not a risk to sixteen major adult humpback whale unless again the whale is stranded, and if the world is stranded and stuck than, you could imagine the talk dolls could pies an additional risk.

Here are the winners of the 2020 Ig Nobel Prizes to make you laugh, then think

"The Twenty Twenty Ige Nobel Prize winners were announced last night the ignoble prizes to achievements that. First make people laugh. Then make them think the prizes are intended to celebrate the unusual honor the imaginative and spur people's interest in science medicine and technology and quote. A. Common Misconception about the ignoble prizes is that they're like the razzies you know making fun of things for being bad. But as they say on their website quote, we're honoring achievements that make people laugh and then think good achievements can also be odd funny and even absurd. So combat achievements a lot of good science gets attacked because of its absurdity and a lot of bad science gets revered despite its absurdity and quote. This year, the award ceremony was held only online but fun fact for you the ceremony while always in person prior to this year has also been streamed online every single year since nineteen, ninety, five making it. One of the very first events to be streamed live online. Improbable research who runs the prize thinks that it may have been the first ever event streamed live online was. Not a music concert, which is pretty cool and now without further ADO, here's a rundown of the twenty twenty winners, the Acoustics. Prize. went to a multinational team that basically had an alligator inhale a bunch of helium with the high pitched effect you'd anticipate so that they could study how alligators communicate the psychology prize went to a North American, team who came up with a method to. Identify, narcissists based on their eyebrow movements. The Peace Prize actually went to the governments, of India and Pakistan. For quote, having their diplomats surreptitiously ring each other's doorbells in the middle of the night and then run away before anyone had a chance to answer the door and quotes and next up the physics prize went to a team who wanted to see what happens to an earthworm. When you vibrate at high frequencies, some of these I think make a lot more sense view actually dive into the paper ignoble does a really good job of describing them in the weirdest most intriguing ways possible. The Economics Prize was awarded to the team who tried to quote quantify the relationship between different countries, national income inequality, and the average amount of mouth to mouth kissing and quote. The management. Prize went to a team of professional Chinese hitmen who conducted a hit by having. So many of them pay the other one to do it with less and less money each time that eventually no one was murdered. The. Prize was awarded to Richard vetter for collecting evidence that Entomologists Aka people who study insects or indeed scared of spiders. Are Not Insects. Now, the medicine prize went to a Dutch and Belgian team for diagnosing missile phony A-. And this is one I remember seen in the headlines about when the research was published because I super identify with it missile phony is Stress at hearing other people make chewing sounds end quotes. The materials science prize sounds completely bazaar and pointless until you understand that this British and American team are archaeologists who were trying to prove something about an artifact that had been found. They won the prize for quote showing that knives manufactured from frozen human feces do not work well and quotes. And finally the Second Prize winner of the year to be more ripped from the headlines than based on academic papers. The Medical Education Prize was awarded to Jay Your Bolsonaro of Brazil. Boris. Johnson of the United Kingdom. Never Injure mody of India Andrea Manual Lopez Obrador of Mexico. Alexander Lukashenko of Belarus, Donald Trump of the USA or John of Turkey Vladimir Putin of Russia and govern Guli Berdymukhamedov of Turkmenistan. For quote using the covid nineteen viral pandemic to teach the world that politicians can have a more immediate effect on life and death. Then scientists and doctors can end quote. Wow. Yeah I mean scientists are pretty fed up. You might have seen that scientific American actually endorsed a candidate for president for the very first time in their one hundred and seventy five year history because among other points. Trump's rejection of evidence in public health measures have been catastrophic in the US and quotes

An Excerpt from the book Flirting with Darkness by Ben Courson

"An excerpt from the book flirting with darkness. Ben. Carson. Weapon number three, the magic number of greatness. I got to a point in my struggle with depression where something needed needed to change must suffering. So badly, I finally decided to do something about it. The ten thousand hour rule saved my life. His Book Outliers Malcolm Glad well demonstrated that to be truly greeted anything. You have to put in ten thousand hours of practice. People such as world chess champion Bobby. Fischer businessman Bill Joy, and IBM founder Bill Gates are among the many examples. Glad. While gives of people who excelled because they accelerated they focused and worked hard and gave at least ten thousand hours to becoming the best at what they did. Glad will show that whether you want to be a fiction writer or master criminal. Hockey player or a pianist ten thousand hours was the magic number of greatness. Bent my mind to that goal is a writer Manspeaker. A resolved to stop wasting my energies, processing psychological trauma and to go on a diametrically opposed direction. Instead of disappearing over why dreams weren't coming to pass, I decided to commit myself to working my fingers to the bone to ensure they did. Psychologists, John Hayes quote looked at how long it took the best composers of all time to create their first grey work. He found that nobody including Mozarts was a child prodigy had produced a piece of work of any significance until about ten years after they had I, taken music no amount of innate talent even in a field of genius such as music could overcome the years of practice necessary to Korea work someone may be talented. They may be lucky but they still have to go through ten years of practice in order to become a master and quote. When Churchill came to power during World War Two he said this as he was being inaugurated into office as prime. Minister quote. I. Offer you nothing save blood, toil tears, and sweat and quo. Lecture Chill Ready to go to battle anew, the path will be difficult PROC- ready to claim own finest hour. Getting better stars, which is getting off your tuition in doing something. So I did. My goal was to become a writer and a speaker put in the needed hours. My nearly worked myself to death, but it was infinitely better than brooding found the effort. Cathartic in fulfilling my spirit's began to lift. I figured I had two options number one either get discouraged that my dreams were not coming pass or number to spend the effort of getting prepared for when they did. Legendary preacher Charles spurgeon advised students to stop worrying about when they would get their shot at speaking and concentrate instead on their ability, and they'll let God take the opportunity in other words quit fretting over the how and focus on the what I took these words to heart and focused on my skill set as I improved my craft, our English word amateur comes from a French Italian an line route which means to love an obvious works when he loves the process and it feels good a professional is someone who worked seven days a week whether he feels like it or not. Today. My TV show hope generation is on twenty different networks more than one hundred and eighty countries and radio shows heard on more than four hundred stations daily. I get to speak in stadiums and arenas. My quote unquote overnight success came through hours of hard work. How you'll spend your ten thousand hours may be different from how I spend mind but you'll find as I did a clear focus and a way of getting off the existential treadmill of despair, transform your life but the age of twenty one, the average American has put ten thousand hours of practice into computer and video games when I use those hours for something more productive. How hard you hustle in the darkness determines how brightly you shine in the spotlight. To prepare for speaking to people I got really good at lecturing my furniture. My chairs were my captive audience I remember that Billy Graham. One said he got his start by preaching to alligators before he preached in stadiums. You have to start with a small stuff and work your way up. So I took every opportunity that presented itself. I spoke to classes of little kids and homeless shelters at old folks, homes, and to student clubs I volunteered to take the opportunities. Others turned down, I got lots of practice. When other speakers turned an organization or church down my said, yes I did this I several years Only the small minded person will refuse the small task for me if I had an audience of four people those enough to get some more practice to put in some more hours toward my ten thousand our goal. Jesus said that if you're faithful and a few small things, you'll be given responsibility over bigger ones Matthew Twenty five that sound good to me. Yes sometimes I did feel like surface the tragic here of Greek mythology who had to roll a boulder of a hill only to see roll back down then roll it back up again only for it to roll back down again repeatedly, I'll stubborn in my pursuit it was a great weapon against despair to keep working in spite of how I felt, which puts me in the mind of a scene from Tolkien's the Lord of the Rings in the First Book of that trilogy the Fellowship of the Ring, a band of warriors is commission travel to the ends of the Earth to destroy the evil ring of power by casting it into mount doom. During their long journey. Gandalf who was their leader was thought to be killed in the minds of Maurya in response airborne stepped up to lead the band in his stead amid his grief and despair he cried out farewell Gandalf what hope have we with you then he turned to the fellowship and said, we must do without hope let us gird ourselves and weep no more come. We have a long road. Like that trek to mount doom healing is usually a long journey. We normally don't start feeling better overnight sometimes, we must go on when we feel absolutely no hope. Our quest leads down a winding path and his sometimes fraught with trolls and Goblins and all manner of Dr Treasures. But psychological heroism is possible in such journey is were taking like Eric Gordon Frodo my set my foot upon my own path out of depression I gave them my flirtation with darkness and began to tread the road toward a grand purpose and it worked after many many years. The Dreams I had begun to despair finally came true new ones came into sight, but it all began by putting one foot in front of the other. If you allow yourself to just sit around and partly catatonic state stuffing yourself with junk food is a form of therapy and watching callous hours of television. You'll probably never start feeling better. But I. Tell You that you get off the couch and venture into the world to do something toward your goals. Things will start to change in your heart and mind if you pull yourself out of bed and get going on your dreams, that's how you'll will begin the journey to healing your broken spirit.

Interview with Thriller Writer Andrew Allan - burst 1

"Hi. Everyone may guest is the author of the wall Asher Thriller series you also right to grind house hulk. We've gotten talked about. He is an infomercial writer and director is also into wild cope movies making them I believe. And runs a website called daily. Grind House Dot. com I guess today's Andrew. Allan. Hi Andrew. Thanks for being here. It's Sure thing I love your resume I mean you're you're by it was fascinating to me because I love sill as well as books I assumed that you were infomerrcial rendered director before you started writing books. Yes. Yeah I, my career is little bit weird in the sense that I went to film school and then I, broke two commercials while I was working on developing movies and I ended up getting a job at the home shopping network, which is based here in Saint Pete Florida and. It's bizarre. Everyone presumes it is, but it was really great experience and I learned how to do a lot of things including sell on TV and that often into doing infomercials, which is selling on TV so and I have to say I love it as ridiculous as it sounds I it's great profession. Sounds. Really cool actually. What made you decide to do infomercials and what prompted you to start writing books? Money prompted me to start doing infomercials. Is You know we all need it. We all like it. But three Oris was. Like I said, I. Learned to basically sell on television when as at. and. That is a natural transition into infomercials and when I decided Lake Age San. I knew I wanted to make my writing or sorry make my living still riding in. If, directing producing commercials. In what was great about infomercials was at a Niche. So instead of just saying, Hey, I'M A. Commercial writer and there's ten thousand other people are competing with. I said been infomercial right better and maybe ten people on meeting with. So now I can like authentically say one of the top it from our show writers world and I've got a ton of experience done thousands of commercials in the ask aid and all that sort of stuff so. It's great and that's how that came to be the reason I started writing books. was because I I remember reasons when I was creatively frustrated had been making movies had been writing screenplays in. which were fun and some of them got made some of them did. But all of them required collaboration and I had reached a point where I didn't really want to collaborate anymore. At least for a while, I needed a break. And that's even on projects that I absolutely loved movie that was aching with my best friend and. Even then like we would get into arguments and about I just needed a break from that. So I wanted to do something on my own and that's when I decided to write a book had a story. Kind of kicking around that I'd never been able to turn into a script. I finally figured out how to make that work in book form, which was the first of Asher took and. Took it from there, the other the other part of that story is. I was actually reading a book by. A very famous author that we all know who I'm not GONNA name and Not to sound Eric and I thought it was terrible house like a weight. and. I actually caught myself saying I could do better. And? You know a very arrogant thing to save for someone who's never. But I decided to see if I could back up. And I think I did. unbelie speaking I didn't think I was right. Funny because a lot of writers actually do start offers those kinds of thoughts I do this. Anyway it wasn't even looking down at the writing it was in fact. The looking at the idea of being writer was more like this story is not entertaining be and. I know enough about story structure from screen plays and things like that. where I could look at this and say, really was about me thinking this guy should be doing a lot better for albig their name is and how much money. Yeah. You points for originality on coming up with a protagonist is infomercial writer. Director. But I see that you've drawn from your own background or at least I assume you have. Tell US little about wall. Ask How is it? He gets into the kinds of situations that would lead to thriller. Series. What I had to figure out. As. He is comes from my background. I did go down the road of right now and that's because. As confident as I was writing commercials in his confident as was writing movies I had no confidence whatsoever writing a book so I figured I ought to. Rely on everything that I could get off the so. And then plus the idea. Of Him being an infamous rider was intriguing. You know. I. Like all of us had written read million books about cops and lawyers and soldiers, detectives and reporters. That's great. People are probably doing it better than me. So let me try something completely different. And I worked at it worked because I think wall what I like about wall. What I like about these books is that he has to rely persuasion to kind of get by doesn't mean he's not physical. There's a lot of action in the books and But. But he is a true amateur sleuth who has nothing to do with. Justice and basically starts out he lives on the Rainbow River, which is a real. River Donnellan Florida about two hours north where I. In he's he's in the river because data's friend's house by the water and finds his friend dead on the Bank of the river. With an alligator in the process of Jim up. But it's clear that the alligator did not kill him so. One thing leads to another and the villain in the story overplays its hand. And attempts to kill. Walt. And it becomes very clear that he has to do. Something a balance it's no. A- paranoid. It's legitimate in in the Diet figuring out. took. Let's see you also, right. Does poke at the series also correct. Those books like you fun. Grind House. I I. Guess. Okay so Basically the Grind House was forty second street movie theaters in the Sixties Seventies in eight Times Square. And They Kinda just show like all the really gross horror movies the karate movies, all kinds of stuff you know movies that were generally looked down upon, but also provided extremely visceral thrill. And I love those movies I think they're A. A love cult movies, and so my grind house pulse series is basically me coming up with ideas for grind house movies, it putting them at goes. It's different than like the wall Asher stuff is war. Thriller Mystery Thriller Suspense Ryan How's Paul is pushed things over the edge a little bit more. you know there's more violence and there's You know just like you'd see in those insane movies and they're really they're. Their books of movies I would love to see. Yeah Yeah. You. Should check public domain deserves some really crazy things that you probably already know that. That's for sure. Oh my gosh. If you receive Nanos hands a fate. Badly. I had yes. Oh my God. That's all say about that. There's some movies that are just so bad. You have to see them. That's one of them. Well, that's a little part of my resume I produced Herschell, Gordon Lewis's last movie. Own Donahue Herschel is he's the guy.

Really sort of rabbit story. There was a slight. Subtle hints. To where it could go beyond that story. Then after I thought about it and I liked the process and I thought the book went well and I didn't get demolished by reviews as like yeah I'll continue the so. As it exists now there's a three book. Arc. Where each is a complete story of their full length novels, but the villain is the same in the three of them. The Antagonists Casino tag is more of a secret organisation kind of thing than just one person specifically. So there's arc with that and then in between each novel. I, I wrote an Avella. And those are side stories, featuring walt and some of the same characters from the boat but not related to that big overarching story. So. Just kind of Nice it's sort of like a breather in between, but you still get to spend time with the characters. That's cool. Yeah. Most of those are. Rooted in the fact that. Waltz basically best friend up on the river where he lives. Dining digi who is actually a criminal biker.

So go back to the wide shot. The alligator. Is the exact same color is the outfit of the guy who's holding alligator or cross him? Like it literally just blends in it becomes him. It becomes him. It was almost an onset quitter until I realized oh was holding alligator I doesn't read. But if you put them in a blue outfit, it would read just fine. And if you put him in a red outfit would read out pattern. Almost anything. But you the wardrobe person picked out so what happened is the wardrobe. Yes. Everybody in the engineer booth. We're just like, where's it? He alligators. I thought that was a throwaway line about an alligator that we never saw at the screen. I never saw. I never noticed. There was an alligator. I thought that was just a throwaway joke at the end not only the alligator the exact same color of the material of the pants and top that the alligator long-sleeve long pants. Wrangler is holding him. But because the guys were in a hat. That's like kind of the color the alligators belly. And the way goes across and the shadow and everything it looks like it's just. It looks like a chameleon chameleon just blending in with with its background with so many other things to look at its competing against fifteen other things anyway. All right. So there's a version in life where you go. Look, we didn't have enough money to get a blue or red out or or whatever that ain't then that's just a person goes I'm going to go.

It's just this weird confluence of things that happened. This is why this is horrible execution. This is what drives me nuts. This is what I would have arguments with people all the time where here's however argument goes get all right? Alligator guy. I forgot to say you gotta go get. And then somebody goes what's wrong with alligator outfit? And then I go to alligator navigator doesn't read on the thing yet. Well, no, we researched it Wrangler. Knicks outfit looks good. That's that's the discussion. I go. I'm not saying, it's good or bad picture alligator. Right. Right. And then and then somebody and then at some point somebody else would enter and go, I don't think it's a big deal. I'd go get out now things deal, but we have a choice, and we can we can we can fix it easily. Yes. The alligator looks like it is one with the alligator Wrangler. My god. How come nobody at that level notice? That said anything had thoughts about it is insane. He's up on. Podium dart. Stuff. So everyone sucks at their job. Right. That is that we've learned from this.

But it wasn't like a big one like this. I used to walk down the street, and he's the lab because people on the other side would walk across the other side of the street walking down the street. So like on a leash. Of course, he did. Bringing up and hugs. His dad would do right now that I hear it does sound a little bit weird. My dad's not a really weird person and chill. Now that I remember him telling me had a pet alligator I'm going to ask more about that dig into that. Right. And I'm sure the alligator loved living Rhode Island in the winter. Let's go for a walk. I don't know if there's different kinds of alligators don't grow because it wasn't like a six foot alligator is probably more like a foot and a half type alligators. Eight oh now, I'm gonna have to dig into that. You know, how old your dad was we had it? Well before I was born. I think when he was like a kid like teen like an older teenager. Oh, it sounds weird now, and it just sounds more weird because of this clip and how bizarre that is. I never thought about it. I I'll be curious if if he was a teenager if it helped him get girls that he had alligator. Lou alligator now. He is old back then it's like, it'd be like the fifties sixties. Yeah.

I don't see many alligators in my office. We reported I guess three weeks ago four weeks ago about this alligator and his owner, Sean Casey, we're victims from their house in the alligator I believe was removed from his I don't know where the alligators. Now, we're gonna find out in just a second because he has retained the the services of jungle law attorney, Lawrence, Sierra and in woods. Hey, guys. How're you doing good? How are you doing? Thanks for having a phone. We really appreciate it. So your your practice revolves around exotic pets is that correct? Yeah. We do a lot of we do a lot of pro Bono work for the animal community in Kansas City. And we focus a lot on exotic animals, you really wouldn't think there's many exotic animals in Kansas City in the middle of the mid west. But you'd be surprised how many calls we get regarding instances like this. But isn't that against the law? Aren't you helping them break the law? Well, we're not actually helping them break the law because actually outside of Kansas City, you're allowed to have certain exotic animals so for an example with catfish here. Mr. Casey, if he would relocate about twenty miles outside of Kansas City, he could have catfish back and live happily ever after with him. We'll we'll talk about catfish and just a couple of seconds here. We would it be safe to say that this alligator though is the first alligator that you've represented in Kansas City or at all. It might be our second alligators or actually a third third fourth alligator. But the prior one had three of them that we worked out a deal with. But yeah, this'll be our second. So go ahead, Lauren. What you tell them about. It's funny because because of who we are because we're named young Eloise. I think that animal owners not just in Kansas City, but pretty much anywhere when they hear about us. They automatically think that were the law firm that fits with what they have and they reach out to us. And obviously what we care about the most is the animals are going to end up in the best situation possible. Sometimes that isn't always what the client necessarily want. So it can be a tough challenge. But in the case of catfish catfish is owner was actually a really wonderful owner not abusive or anything like that. He was very caring. And so we were fortunate that this had a happy ending. Okay. So let's talk a little bit about catfish. Who is a obviously in alligator how much does catfish way right now. Little about twenty-five who. He's not a small full grown almost eight feet long. He's a serious animal and he's had a diet of chicken, nuggets chicken mcnuggets. I believe or something like that. Because he only likes chicken mcnuggets.

Hey, hey, y'all do you put D put shipping containers on the sheet? I go on the ship. And then you ship them across the ocean on the ship. So the ship so races over the pack. Everything up. They put the cars and all the pit deer in the shipping container right there at the racetrack. Tim mcflynn is like the car chief his job is to go in there and make sure that everything the checklist. Everything's in the thing he gets into think they shut it. In all he can think you he's pounding on the door. Nobody can hear him that all he can think is hearing is that they're going to load this thing up on the ship. And it was like six seven weeks is going to take to get this stuff back to North Carolina. And he's thinking they're open this thing up and find a couple of race cars and a skeleton in a fire.

"There is a lot of around in my town right now. And frankly, the town doesn't even let you plant fruit trees in the boulevards anymore. Because like no one picks the fruit and it just sits there and get stinky. Then the squirrels eat it and they get drunk, and then they are crazy squirrels and wait. What will the fruit for Mets on the ground and the squirrels eat it, and they get shut up squirrels, do not get drunk off of ground fruit do they do? And it happens to bats to bat can get drunk. No, no. Evidently a thing drunk fruit score that happened on naked and afraid to where this guy was really hungry and he needed to eat food. And so he ate some rotten food and he got, he got really drunk or he added hadn't eaten them like two days. So he didn't get that drunk. He didn't, but he didn't need a lot of alcohol that fruit to make them get a little tipsy. And to be clear. I only know this because I was told this by Hannah heart. I do not watch decadent afraid. Yeah, that seems like something that somebody who watches naked and afraid would say. I put naked and afraid and turtles all the way down. And so I felt like I had to watch it episode of it. Yeah, and but I watched it. I watched it after I wrote the scene, you know, yes, you do, and I watched the show and I was like, yeah, no, it's pretty much what I expected. I mean, they really do cover it in the title. Yeah, some people who are pretty afraid. Imagine it. Pause Paul's the apple question just for a second, heck, so that we can imagine together the pitch meeting which naked and afraid was created, c, walk into the Discovery Channel and you're like, yeah, we got a few shows. We want to pitch you. One is about alligator hunters in New Orleans. It's called a alligator town and they're like, alligator Tommy, it sounds good. It's not great. And then you're like, okay, our other show is called naked and afraid. Discovery Channel, people are just like, here is a pile of money. Yeah, you know what we need to do with that with bigoted afraid is get some people to sign some disclaimers and put them in situations where they might die. I don't know what the law is here going back to the apples, but I do think that somebody's gotta eat them and if it's not you, it's going to be drunk squirrels. I'm not super worried about the public health problem of drunk squirrels. I'm a little worried about kin trespassing onto someone else's land, eat someone else's apples, especially if there's an army in, they're like, that's not. Yeah, I would. I would knock on the door and say, hey, can I pick some of your apples or eat something or ground apples the squirrels don't get drunk or alternately just let it go. Which reminds me John that this podcast is brought to you by naked in a freight naked into frayed this week on. Covering man and a woman are uncomfortable in the in the woods, get bit by bugs of bunch..
