ETH 219: Legends, Locals and Pink Dolphins
"Okay i'm recording. Are you recording esther. Okay great hi everyone. Welcome to the earth to humans. Podcast my name is serena simon's. I'm the senior producer on the podcast and our guest producer on the show. Today is esther no ceo. Ghei esther to go ahead and introduce yourself listeners. Yeah sure i am better than i do. Research in nigeria. I studied birds. I'm also a science writer. That's what they do. That's cool so you know. We were trying to schedule our meeting today. And it's about seven a. m. pacific standard time for me while we're talking and it's about four in the afternoon in nigeria for you so i just think it's it's kinda cool to Just show how far hard you know. Our reach is getting with the podcast. Astor's in nigeria. I'm in california and were able to bring you. You know a cool episodes like this. How's it going over there. In nigeria with the kind of work that you're doing on birt's like what specifically are you working on over there these days. I'm watching on october last year. Steady project on the die in lagos lagoon so this year. I'm looking to look cats. Birds that use or bandwidth so abundance distribution just basic stuff because a about grids in this particular environment. So that's awesome. I'm hoping maybe we'll get a podcast episode about this soon to hopefully and wouldn't you know about the amazon river dolphin before producing this episode. Anything okay before may having to look into it. Because i was going to produce podcasts. Nothing has never heard of them before. No sweetie something new for me day. Well let's get into this episode. I'm really excited for our listeners. To hear it. It's you know recovering This particular endangered species in this really incredibly impacted environment and learning about suzanne and the research that she's doing and i think it's going to be an awesome episode for our listeners. So i hope you enjoy it. So how did you get to hold with. This revived dolphins. So i have been working out with predominantly marine mammals. Mostly mostly dolphins for the past thirty five years and i went to brazil for the first time over twenty years ago and i absolutely fell in love with it and i made two trips pretty quickly back to back. Isn't it was a really long time before. I went down there again and i went down about six years ago and absolutely fell in love all over again and saw these amazon river dolphins again and i just had to know more so i was has gone to different areas where the river dolphins are found and a lot of questions of the local of the local residents in not a lot of people could answer questions about them. Just wear do they go. What do they eat. Do they all hang out together. Just just some general questions that no one could answer for me. So i thought i thought we should find out more about these about these. Animals are really. They're just such amazing creatures and about two years ago they were deemed endangered. So the more questions we can ask and get answered asked. Certainly the better off for the amazon river dolphins. That's exciting yes. I have not stopped going back now for for five years unlikely to tell me. What does your typical daily click will win. When i am in brazil on the amazon we typically get up around six o'clock in the morning and we load up our equipment into the canoe and we head out in search of dolphins. We are typically doing population surveys. When we are out there so that we can start to get an idea of how many river dolphins are in a particular area so we go out into these little nooks and crannies of the river These little small waterways to try to find the river dolphins in than we can count them in while we are doing our counts. We are also taking a lot of photographs because we have a photo. Id catalog and we typically do that. Aren't into the afternoon and we may take a short break and then we head back out and wego until the sun goes down so we're basically looking for and counting dolphins and photographing them all day. Long that sounds very interesting is wonderful. It's wonderful so what fascinates you about the amazon river dolphins. So many things. They are definitely. I think they are the coolest species of dolphin on the entire planet. They there are a lot of really fun. Facts about amazon river dolphins. A lot of people don't even know that they exist and they do. There's a lot of really cool things so they are. They're also called pink record all but one thing that people don't know is that when they are born they are completely gray in as they get older and there are a lot of theories why but they turn pink in they have different Different shades they can be really dark gray and get lighter gray in they can be seen them where they are just a very light pink or a really bright bright pig So that is very cool about them they are also the only dolphin that has two different types of teeth. So you have Dolphins on that. We're most familiar with which the bottlenose dolphins they have cone shaped teeth they Their whole mount is completely filled with cone shaped teeth. And then if you think of some of the smaller porpoises they have spade shaped teeth while the amazon river dolphin has both. They have the cone shaped teeth on the front in the spade shaped teeth in the back in the reason for that is because of their wide varieties of food that they eat so they do eat a lot of fish but down in the amazon they have really big armored catfish Really hard on the outside and dolphins are also known to eat turtles from time to time so they need goes flat teeth so that they can punch armor the catfish or the shells of the turbo. That snout in the front of their faces called the rostrum in the amazon river dolphin. It is extremely long. They also have very large pectoral fins. Which are the fins on either side of their body and they're just enormous. They are enormous. So there's a lot of really really cool things about the amazon river dolphin. So it's been really need to learn more about them so i'm just curious because a Orchid in science communication. I research are also and i walk with a modern research institute. I'm quite new. So i'm just two years in and i have never seen any dolphin will have read about him. You know the ones that even marine environmental. What was the difference holiday different from the marine dolphins. Well they are really different things. So some of the things that i just mentioned Like the pictorial fans and the coloring and the teeth Those are definitely some very big noticeable differences The marine species. Which everybody's most familiar with the tursi. Ops which is. The richest evolve knows dolphin. They are great La segue their life. Even though you can't tell them apart it can be a can be a little bit difficult. They are certainly are gregarious. Species and the amazon river can be too so they are very different in appearance for sure i would say that is there that is the biggest says the biggest difference between the two of them. You said this dolphins are endangered. Right what would you say a stakes. If you know we don't walk to understand them and protect them and you know so what you're saying. Yeah so by. Knowing the health in the status of the amazon river dolphin can really give us a lot of insight information into the amazon rainforest as a whole in. No matter where you are on this planet we all need rainforest without them. This earth is definitely going to collapse and with the amazon river dolphin. There are a number of factors that are stacked against them. So for instance. There is a lot of pollution. There's love plastic in the water. There's a lot of traffic There is habitat destruction in habitat degradation because of illegal mining in damning. That is going on down in south america brazil and some other countries. I'm so there's all these things that are stacked against the amazon river dolphin right from the get go but another thing that the amazon dolphin faces is illegal hunting so there is a fish species of catfish called the period catching up and they use the amazon river dolphin bait to catch fish so they will kill amazon river dolphins with machetes or with harpoons and they will stop them inside of a wooden bait box so that they can catch catfish in naval ship the catfish off to neighboring countries For food and they estimate close to two thousand dolphins being killed annually in just one very small area in once. We start to kill those river. Dolphins that's going to affect the fish population that is going to affect the forest as a whole so we really need to. We really need to do our best. Because we are losing this species this particular species adam alarming rate on your website. Though something about how that you walk look how people learn you. Try to use your believes the wisdom. Can you give a kind of example as to how you checks absolutely so one of the things that we do. Is we go into these riverside communities and we help we help them by bringing in school supplies and things like that so we believe that conservation education is very important so the way that it works in this relationship is that so. The amazon river is enormous. It is so huge gigantic. So one of the things that we can use is just their knowledge of the amazon rainforest and how to navigate it in where we might be able to find a dolphins that we might not be able to find so easily because it is such a vast area in there all these little tiny waterways in ways that you can go through the rainforest. It sounds it. Sounds really funny. But yes we. We take canoe into the into the rainforest in we can find. We can find dolphins in the forest especially during the flood times of the year and we rely on locals for that information And they are always willing to help out but we also explain to them. We like to teach them about why the river dolphins are so important in how it links not only to the other species of other wildlife inside of the amazon rainforest but also how loose back to them to so by creating this relationship between our researchers and the riverside communities. We've been able to develop this really neat relationship In it has really been is really been wonderful because we want to be able to to save the all the wildlife in the rain forest and we do that through education with with the riverside communities. That's interesting so would you say that there has been changes can behavior of the lookout people. She started working. I believe sell. I think i think everything is. It's a little bit of a slow process but that's okay because we want to make sure that that they trust us right in. We trust them or building relationships. Not only with the with the wildlife but with the but with the residents as well in without that trust and without that relationship. We're not going to get very far. So i think it has been slow but they think that they understand why we're there. I think they understand that we are doing good. Not only for the wildlife but for them as well and we are trying to come up with other solutions so for example we don't we don't ever go into an area in. Tell them that they are doing something wrong. Or they are doing something bad and that they need to stop. Part of the whole thing is that we need to provide solutions. And i think that they realize and understand that we are just there to help in not only helped the river dolphins but to help them as well so i think those relationships have definitely gotten a lot stronger over the years In they understand more about just you know reusing items in not using plastics and things like that and just being more cautious with the wildlife And so when we go down there now they are always very excited to tell us stories about where they have seen river dolphins in how many they've seen worth they've seen babies and things like that so it's definitely a slow process but that's okay as long as we are moving forward and making progress which we are. It's definitely what can in conservation needs to be patient absolutely absolutely taint patients patients key. Yes so you said something earlier about how that you always take photographs. 'cause you're trying to make a cutolo. Yes so they vary. All individuals are different. And whether you are talking about smell porpoises or if you're talking about large wales they can all be identified by their fluke by their flukes. Which is the tail at the back. So e every single one is like their own fingerprint. No to dolphins have the exact scene tale so that is one way another way that you can tell Different dolphins apart is from their dorsal fin. But where that becomes a challenge with the amazon river dolphin is they don't really have the traditional dorsal fin that you might see like on the marine species. It's more of a rich. So that makes identifying them using dorsal fin a little more challenging. Because it's not quite there and we can definitely use the flukes but they don't necessarily always bring their flukes up when they do. We do our best to photograph that as quickly as possible because we can definitely identify them using that method but they also vary in their color patterns. Like i was saying so they start gray but then they get pink as they get older but they also become very splotch. -i in there's different patchwork of that population so we take photographs of both sides We take we take as many photographs as we can. Because of is the best way to identify. The i did the individuals so the only compile all of these photographs thousands and thousands of photographs in we will match up in. We know exactly which ones so we have. We have about thirty specific individuals that we can identify and the residents can identify them as well in. It's usually through the color patterns. I'm so we'll be really so. For example we have there's one dolphin Whose name is mitch. mcco And the folks from the riverside. Commune these they know they start to know these individuals and they will be all the tell us. Oh we saw matteo or here. So we're trying to find a particular individual they have become the residents have become pretty invested in it. So it's really neat for them to be a part of it definitely interesting to be able to call one dollars. Yeah it's really neat. Many of them have names. Some of them have few names So they can have. They might have different names from one community to the next in another reason why this photo id. Catalog is can be important because we now know through. These photo idea catalogs that the same dolphin might have two different names. So i might hear a story about dolphin a in this community in mike here story about dolphin beef from a different community. Only find out that it's the exact same dolphin so that's been really that's been very interesting to find out over the year. Salamis this walk. Yes several communities involved. A comedy conveniences talking about we cover an area that is about forty five kilometers so there are several communities that we that we interact with in in in our time down there when we are out in the field doing our research so we make sure to visit all of the different communities in. They've all been wonderful. So you said you have like tall zones photos to analyze. That sounds like you work a lot of work for me for sure. We also have to university interns That that do a lot of that. Do a lot of that work for us. We also collect audio samples so we have hydrophones that we put into the water in we record the sounds of the river dolphins in we have an entire department at at a university. It's eckerd college in florida and the students in the animal behaviour lab. There are going through all those audio recordings in separating it all out in putting it in. They have very distinct software that they use specifically for dolphin calls as much work. I have i could. I could not do it by myself a so. It's very nice that we have. We have not only are board members but we have Board advisors in than we have our interns in then. As i mentioned we have a. We have a whole department at a college. That is that works on different aspects of our project as well in we certainly. We certainly could not do it allowed. Has it been for you having sustained in amazon for a while you know considering that these rural communities covington quite what you're used to know it is it is very different so at home. I live in new orleans louisiana which is very big city with you know when we are not in the pandemic there's always music festivals and thousands of restaurants with really good food in the amazon is very different. It is it is very quiet. It is not it is not populated the way that it is here but i absolutely love it. We in the in our canoe. We pack a hammock. We've pack a hammock and a cooler For some food with some food but we do a lot of fishing out on the river as well. But it's just it's just so peaceful in it so beautiful that i absolutely love it I sleep very well there. But i miss i miss being in the jungle is just. I absolutely love it. So what's the conservation efforts like for the larger ecosystem amazon forest. That's a great question esser in So they are definitely some challenges down. in brazil. there are a lot of great universities. There are a lot of great research centers but if funding is very difficult down there So we work very closely with some of the researchers down in brazil in down down around the amazon which is very nice and we try to support them as as much as we can but one of the things that it's very difficult in terms of laws environmental laws. There are a lot of laws in place to protect the amazon. But those aren't always followed so for example. I did mention The killing of amazon river dolphins i mentioned illegal mining so even though a lot of these things are illegal. It does happen right. There are always illegal activities that are happening but one of the problems down. There is that there just isn't the enforcement so there are not a lot of agents out on the river to be able to find these activities in stop the activities so there are just not just you know the amazon is so huge in there are not enough enforcement agents to to help protect it. They the agent center there. Some of them worked very hard in tirelessly to protect it. But there just aren't enough of that sounds very familiar. That situation is like what we have here. Nigeria i the laws but delaying Theory and played so important to work with the local communities because they can become stewards for the environment that will help. They can help. Save the amazon right there by by protecting it using it properly In also by helping them come up with solutions on on ways to to possibly fish better for example. The pure coaching of we can help them. Find ways to choose aquaculture then that would certainly help save the amazon river dolphin in some cases. So that's why it's so important when the when the law enforcement is not they are for for whatever. The reason may be That's why it's really important. For the for the local communities to to be the protectors of their own ecosystem. Yeah that's important because above from the law enforcement another issue is poverty. People are just trying to make ends meet just trying to provide for their families. That's another situation that you have to take care of. Think about absolutely would be. It would be very easy. Like i said before. You know. we can't go in it. We never do. We never go in and we tell people that they are doing the wrong thing or what they are doing as bad in tell them to stop because if they are trying to feed their family and they have several children and there are a number of families in one community. There has to be a solution right. We can just tell them to not do it because it's raw we have do. We have to explain why there might be a better way to do it. In order to protect all of the wildlife in all the flora and fauna but also give them another another another option in other alternative to what they are doing. We can't just tell them to stop because they still have people to feed in people to live so but by providing different solutions for them. That's that's a big part of it is important for glucose dissolution. That's when you works absolutely. Yeah because if they don't if i always say if the local communities don't believe in this project then there's really no sense i can. I can just go down in count dolphins in in tell people that the numbers are dwindling if if the people don't don't believe in and don't want to help protect the amazon rainforest we're going to lose it all if it starts it starts right there. It starts with them in if we can help provide alternatives while helping save all the different species and beloved amazon dolphin than the nestle. We will do takes. It takes a team when you first win there as working hard look how people will ever had any experience we are had. It ever had any knowledge within needs to conserve this dolphins or i. What was the reaction to these ini show so there are a number of areas on amazon. Where some of the local communities interact with the dolphins and they get into the water and they swim with them. There is actually a legend that they believe that the river dolphins are shaped shifter's and at night they will come out of the water as a handsome man in. He will wear a hat in say that he's wearing a white hat to cover has blowhole and they say that he charms and he seduces the women and then the next morning he is gone and he has been. He has gone off into his enchanted underwater world. And i have found elders in communities. That really truly believe in the legend. I have loved legend. I think it's really need app. And i hope one day to meet to me one of these handsome Out of the water in. Maybe he will take me away to his enchanted world. That would be wonderful but until then there are these stories than they do. Interact with them. And i have met people A couple of years ago. I had always heard different stories They love. they know that i'm there. Come at the dolphin girl all they they know that i'm they are For the river dolphins in so they love telling me things about the rudolph the they love telling stories about them. They love telling me where they saw them. So years ago. I started recording. Some of these stories So some some folks are very very afraid of them. Some of them believe that they are magical Because they like the shape shifter so they think that it is bad luck to harm a river dolphin but then again then there are some other areas where they do hunt and kill them so it's a pretty big range of what people believe about the amazon river dolphin so they were interacting before i got there definitely but then like i said i started asking. All of these flushing. So i have begun to share my own stories with them. And it's really neat. at night. We can sit down and we all have dinner together and we will exchange stories about the wildlife certainly amazon river dolphins. So i think even prior to be getting there. They definitely have different beliefs about the river dolphins and they they have come to know more about them in now i think they are more cautious of them and i think they make more of a note when they see them So they because they tell me these stories and they helped me find them so it has. It has really worked out over the years. I think you'd seen very easy to fool. Mixture you know bringing the science and deluca called understanding. I think it just makes it more robust. You know i mean you're standing. Oh the animals. Yes i agree. That's a very that's a great way to put it is it becomes more. Robots lock that. So what would you say your greatest challenge has. We've tried to conserve the muslim rivaldo. Probably the language i haven't. I did not know any portuguese at all. When i first started going there i have learned an awful lot of it. and continue to learn that and that has probably been the biggest. But you know just Just going in in just being just learning their culture and their way of life in knowing that it is very different from my own. And it how i can best serve the communities and how i can best sir saving the amazon river dolphin through helping them. So it's it's been this kind of delicate balance of learning the language in the culture but they are wonderful wonderful people in they. They have made all the difference in the world for it. So that's been very helpful in the project. I read about People asking a governments to renew immaterial so that the endangered regret. Dolphins can't be was going on. And what is your heating so five years ago. The more time that you speak of is they put a ban on fishing catchinga chinga which There was some video footage that was shown on national. Tv in brazil of some local people killing a amazon river dolphin and it turned out not only. Did they kill the amazon river dolphin but they also found out that it was pregnant so when they showed this video footage on national. Tv it's barked. Just there was outrage in the country. Which was really good. And there was a large push four the government to do something that and they did so they put a five year moratorium on the fishing of pure coaching which was good because it gave the Chinga in also gave the amazon river dolphin. A rust from being hunted and killed. Well that moratorium was. It ended december thirty first of twenty nineteen and what we had hoped from the researchers in the field biologist. We all had hoped that every since everything was in place the moratorium was in place. We had hoped that it would just be extended. There wasn't anything more that needed to happen. They just needed to extend it but what happened was lifted it so starting january first of twenty twenty. It is now legal. It is okay for people to fish. Pier could chinga which means that people are killing amazon river dolphins again and there is another complication with the pure ka ching because there are people who studied that catfish in they are finding very dangerously high levels of mercury and that is a lot caused by a lot of the runoff from the illegal mining. That is happening in the amazon rainforest. So there are a lot of bad things that are happening in now with that moratorium. Not in place anymore. It has it has put those challenges back into place so those of us that are working to save not only the amazon river dolphin by many of the other species in the rain forest. We would like to see that moratorium back in place because even with a moratorium we already talked about how there are not enough agent so a lot of these killings in a lot of the fishing was still happening anyway. Not to the extent without the moratorium but because they didn't have the agents to protect it but now since it is okay for them to do it again It has just really decrease the numbers of the amazon river dolphin fan for the pure coaching. Got and the pair coaching. 'as not safe for people to eat on top of that so It is very very unfortunate that that has happened with the moratorium and we just have to keep fighting to try to get that mar taurean back into place or something similar so that we can make it safe again. So there is a a section that you and suzanne talk about. And this is the part that i knew about Know ahead of this episode. So i really didn't know that much about amazon river dolphins but i did know about the the legend. That's mentioned in the episode where you have the legend that these dolphins come ashore and turn into humans and they have to wear a hat or something to cover the top of their head to disguise their their blowhole. I really really love that legend. It resonates with me so much. There's so much Reverence and respect it. Sounds like from the elders in these communities for these dolphins and so it really ties in not just the buy in with the community and making sure that there are good alternatives when you are trying to change behavior but also that there's Sort of like spiritual and cultural connections. These connections are really important to protecting some of these species to And i just think that that's a really beautiful Connection between all of this between the science and you know the the culture of these people these locals yeah. I won't read about the community. Nigeria so the venerates crocodiles is coastal community and so the title of the article was cordell. The actually really serious about making you cutie. Crocodile day. Define you heavy. I think you have to before is ceremony as Berry new human being and this is because of some of the spiritual connections know that people have they have deep cultural and traditional ties in to those animals so it helps because these people have vested interest in this so it's both helpful to them and to the animals when whoever is coming into maybe study those animals or tried improve conservation you know onto stance distance. You know we have an episode talking about The moratorium on hunting of the amazon river dolphins and name. And you know that sort of does complicate you know. It complicates things and the prospect of their protection in the future. But suzanne still seems incredibly optimistic So can you talk a little bit about that. like how. How do we stay positive when we have so many odds stacked up against us. You know in in this particular environment. It's the amazon river dolphin and the hunting of these dolphins and potentially to their detriment and extinction But how do we stay positive when we we have so many things up against these environments and species of question first of all. I think the approach that she brings tweets and the conservation triple turrets. The collaboration we look house research and education. Those three things walking hand in hand go along so inasmuch as murder is not fair. And things look solve leak dairies. Walk is going on to educate these locales and when people understand some things when people have come to sit up. Okay this is owned good. This is is environment that we don't to destroy. I think when people take it up for themselves and he becomes the own course. If there is no legal protection. I think people can come up with ways off regulates indistinct what is in data just for the people to be willing to wants to this and i think that is the fact that details already been collected so if this lack of material goes on this research come show. That's gary's a difference. Between the years. Wendy was monitoring and years windows And with the data people see that there is a problem. I think he's who help for people to take. Drastic measures did is one of the best arguments. You can't presents thing resentful optimism. People are spitting declarations indeed. Yeah i think. And i think so too i i would agree that there is definitely hope And i i love the idea that even if there isn't legal recourse you know. And there's maybe a lapse in in this for now. That people are still genuinely passionate and once they have all of the information you know and understand the effects of their actions that people do want to change and protect their environments and that the people are genuinely good out there and you know i just think that's a great story so thank you for this episode. Esser i really really enjoyed it. I really excited for suzanne and her research to continue. And i hope we can get an update and esther hopefully will get an update from you and your research and Have you on the show again releasing.

Episode 20 - The Encantado
"Hi there everybody. I'm Logan Lindsay, and this is folk lore on the rocks. Thanks again for joining us everybody and think you have ever back. Everybody back here. Again, good to be back lens. How you doing? I'm doing. Well, how are you doing pretty well we've had well we've had kind of a weird winter kind of some days of like freezing cold and snow up here in Utah. Other times rain a little early for this time of year. But we're on this side of the Rockies. So we're getting all the Pacific weather weird winter. It has been a weird weird winter. It's been. Yeah. Someday snow some days in early spring, but all in all we're getting through it, at least know lately like five feet of snow. Yes. And then all of a sudden budge us know, very annoying, but it's just bought a fat bike and put a big crazy electric motor on it. But don't tell anybody. Yeah. I don't know what you're talking about. It's a stealth by also stinking cool in the snow. It's so writing a regular fat bike in the snow. My hat goes off to anybody. Who's like, I'm going to do it. I'm gonna pedal something with car tires through the snow tires are Jain Norma's. Yeah. Four inches wide there. This is this is quite the cycling podcast. We didn't know that when we started how weird, but then I then I bought an electric motor and installed it on their through a darkened profane ritual. I took out regular bike parts and putting cyborg by parts. Now, it's an incredible monster is what I've made. And it's a good time in the snow is kind of the point. I'm getting to after all of this long and meandering story. I'm glad you're having a good time with it. Yeah. It's it's year round for Logan. As it should be other than that. It's been cold and working on just other weird stuff. But hey, life is good. And we are here ready to go on another journey down to do. Let's really quickly talk about over drinking. Okay. Let's get good and drunk. I then we'll take our boarding passes. Good. So our cocktail this week is the end cantata, oh is also the creature. There were talking about doing doing. So if you were guessing at home, that's there is the cantata, especially if you didn't see the title when you clicked play. That's how I always podcasts. I never each and every titles much more fun that way that's fair. It's an adventure in a mystery all wrapped in one even on non mystery podcasts. It's how I live my life. Tell us about the drink. I yes. So the cantata it is two answers of Kashasa. Like we have last week and our bring us to hands of Hossa one ounce of lime juice and then half an ounce of either crediting or red currant syrup as intially it's there to just kind of make the drink pink. That is because the Incan Tato are pink river dolphins pink river dolphins. We will more about those in a little bit. But the star. Is the perfect drink for this little journey. Now, this just as fruity and sweet as as last week's drink. It does have a slightly different flavor. That Grenadine does add kind of some difference to it. We're not doing right current syrup. So I'm curious, but that would taste like, but it would do the same kind of thing in making pink. Yeah. And Grenadine is a is a good flavor to toss into things. It's a. Let's see one time. I was at I was an Italian restaurant. This was in San Francisco, the steps of Rome in little Italy wonderful spaghetti, and if you they have a huge array of of Italian sodas and very attractive servers. So which is why there which is why anybody goes course. Ladies the the mail. Servers will come to your table, and lift you out of your seat and dance with you in the middle of your, and it's it's you know. Other than it's a very Italian kind of place. Anyway, so I wouldn't Italian soda from very attractive female server. And I said she said what flavor and they said surprise me. And she brought went back, and it was a it was a pink drink, and you the audience at home, we all know, this is Greenwich dean story. So yes, it wasn't fact Grenadine, but which you don't know it's granting it tastes like every other pink fruit. I was thinking that strawberry is at watermelon. What is this? And she says if you can't guess you don't get to dance with me. And so. I finally guest Grenadine, but it was one of those ones that really took some doing. But this is this is a nice addition to the drink. Well, the question is did you get to dance with her? I today, but you know, I I can't keep up with those talion boys. No way, I'm not the dance fool. I used to be Lynn's. I don't believe you. Oh. So yeah, okay. We're heading down to Brazil. We've got drinks in hand. We've got a colorful flowers in our drinks. We're we're flying down over the over the rainforest, and we see we they've got colorful birds, and monkeys and the trees, and their sounds all around we land on the ground. Now, tell us what you're gonna lead our journey your your tour tour guide, so we've landed in Brazil where we going and after that amazing introduction. I'm going to interrupt for seconds. Sorry. And I'm going to do our promo now really fast just really cool soak in the tail okay? So this is like the in-flight entertainment as we're on our way down there. We're watching on our flight. Okay. Before we get to the beautiful rain floors outside of the window. We just looked at the brochure. It's going to be awesome. We're not there yet. We've got just served drinks. We we turn on the promo. And this is what we get perfect. Yeah. So our promo for this week is for a podcast called the crypto naturalist. They are biweekly scripted audio drama that kind of just explorers strange nature as you can kind of tell them the title crypto medalist who on. It's kind of hard to describe it more than that. Without actually just listening to it. But it's really really good. And I think that you should listen. So there's also a poetry section in each of the episodes called hidden Lor, and it's super fantastic. Is it original poetry? Yeah. They have new people submit each episode. It's really cool. And even if you don't end up deciding to listen to the podcast self I really really recommend following them on Twitter because often some of the tweets are are some of the most poignant and beautiful things I've ever read very cool wage war on all fronts. It's wonderful like the whole krypton naturalist experience is just weird and wonderful. And I love it so much. So here is the problem. Jill naturalist bad cast is been described Bob. Ross crust with William tonight, veiled, David Attenborough meets the X files would describe it as a loving nature, just well nature. I can guarantee you've never heard before. Joe features strange creatures unusual locations. Guest poetry and fiction in field reports voiced by people leg addle Refai. Justin mcelroy. Find the crypto naturalist anywhere. You find podcasts. Lauren grip naturalist. And we're back and we're back. They said pretty cool. Yes, he do. So as look inside we are flying in. Yeah. I've got Angra played in my headphones as we as we land. The jungle beats of of Brazilian heavy. Metal just guiding me down there and reminding me that the United while it's very wild and tropical place. It's also got a rich culture that came over from Portugal, and and Europe and Africa and Africa too. So blend those altogether, and you get Brazil. Yeah. So I offer going to start talking about the Amazon Amazonia, which is specifically the name for the Brazilian Amazon and Amazonia the Brazilian Amazon. It comprises permanently half of the entire Amazon basin which is itself distributed over seven entire countries. So. Marcation went out. It went right through the exact. The bee's in itself is about two point seven million square miles. So it's very large and the rainforest is covering about two point one of those entire square miles. So it's very very big the Amazon river itself. It begins in a tiny high lake up in the Andes and the river is about forty three hundred miles long, or if you're Colombina person, it's over ten thousand clouds just a little over ten thousand thousand Cologne. It's bananas. And there's like a thousand tributaries it's branching off all over the place. So some estimates state that within the Amazon they're like approximately a million species of flora and fauna. Oh, yeah. Probably more honest. I concur by with my armchair scientists. It's just so unexplored scientifically that there's just there has to be so much that we don't know. Right. Oh, yeah. And I love that. We're only now just starting to realize the value of some of these things. There's always been bad. Yeah. There's always been a, you know, scientific curiosity and in cataloging new things, but but as we find cures for diseases or things we didn't expect from from plants or animals in these really remote strange places in the world. It just reminds just how precious they are. Absolutely. And we really have to work to make sure that those things stay process because the more the more we find out that these things are useful the more they want to be exploited. So anyway, that's it's a holder tant. Yeah. More quarterbacks cliff acts. Yeah. The Amazon it is a it's, unfortunately, it's it's a part of the world that has been exploited quite a bit very much like when we talked about the group's Lang in Africa. It's it's beautiful rich and natural resources. And it's part of the world that a lot of people have tried to take take advantage of it and exploit I have that we can just maybe not do it as much to that. But I don't I think let's of Bain hope that's a good plan as all of these presidential candidates are coming forth. I think he's got a good idea to toss into the ring do less of the environmental destruction bullshit that we've been doing like green party. I've been riding a bike in February. I'm doing my part. That's fair. That's good. Okay. So more facts about the Amazon river on it holds like a half of the world's river water. The world's river water like a half of it is in this one river, which is crazy. It's a very big river. My brain is wrapping around that. It's gonna take a second. And then the basin like the leafy basin. It's supplies like a tenth of the world's oxygen. Just from this rainforest seems pretty important. Let's not mess with it. I think right. Let me just trop down all these trees, and then suffocate to death because I did it even though I shouldn't have can we get another one of those seems like seems like that's a good thing. Maybe just stay where it is. Yeah. It has a wet season that lasts like half the year. So from December to June, the very rainiest part of that is like March through may where it rains every single day. Sometimes it lasts an like an hour. But there is a downpour everyday. That's kind of. That was makes Florida in July. Abe rains every single day. And it didn't just like sprinkle it like buckets poured from the sky to the rest of the world listeners not to go on another tangent again. But the, but we we don't get super phase by snow snow doesn't impress either. One of us. We're from Utah. We're from the Rockies. However, any substantial amount of rain is like, whoa. What is going on? Yeah. Informative. Happening. Is this cane all those places us big rainstorms? And it's just like, Nope. This is I'm out of my league here. Good need a bigger boat. They're like, oh, this is nothing. Yeah. But when I went to Florida, I didn't I didn't know this. So for me, it was like a everything I own is completely. So this is fantastic. And here's the bonus part. It will never draw. Exactly you walk out of the shower, and you feel like you never left C and a title back. I'd imagine Brazil has has the same relative humidity. It's it's it is a hot, humid place. It is the rainforest. I'd imagine on our little rainforest adventure. We're a little sticky, and that's just comes with the territory most likely, but what we do get is a really fun river adventure. If we go somewhere. So if you if you do end up visiting there is a very good chance that you will see some Amazon river dolphins who we're gonna talk about. All kinds of things lined up of other see on our that mitchum can tell. You can tell me more. I know they're like, I'm pretty sure there's bars. They're boras. There's the dreaded candy ru there's. There's there's there's Blunkett from street fighter and the electric eels that taught him to charge like trinity through his skin sense that we there's a lot of things to see on our Amazon adventure. And we will also find some pink river dolphin the river, south thin. So the Portuguese named for these dolphins is Boto or Boto mellow. I polish is an advanced for my exceptionally poor. Pronunciation of Portuguese words. For me for cheeses, always a language. I've really struggled with. I when I when I listened to it. It's always, oh, well, that's not for me. And it's not that. I dislike it, it's a beautiful language. It just having studied French only somewhat prepared prepares you to read Portuguese doesn't prepare you to speak it at all the reading it makes sense. Because a lot of the root words are very similar, but pronunciations are significantly different. Not the same in the lease. Yeah. So they're called the Boto mellow or we're just going to call them, the Boto Boto, and you may have heard of them as the pink ribbon open like we talked about. So they're pink. We'll talk about that little bit more in a second in how all of that pertains to their biology and everything and we arguments about these dolphins themselves kind of hearkening back to like our Giorgu episode how we started talking about actual juris biter for quite a while. And then we talked about the goon that's kind of what we're gonna do here a little bit because you need to know about these creatures before you can understand the mythology that surrounds them, essentially 'cause this about a real creature. That's that's something that already strikes me as very special about this creature. Absolutely that they are a supernatural interpretation of a very real thing. They didn't come from a cultural route they came from seeing something and accepting. Yes, it is real animal, but the stories still going to continue. Yeah. Cool. Yeah. So the scientific name for the their species is any Jefferson SIS, and it represents an ancient lineage of toothed Wales. It's a freshwater dolphin. That's kind of caught in a mea seen time-warp. Yeah. They got the got out of the water. And they're like, ooh, it's it's not as wet out here. Let's go back in the water this way, and then we don't need legs. But let's keep our pelvis. With the freshwater instead of the water. Anyway, is Geron. Oh Indian word for dolphin apparently in you. Okay. Maybe I don't know. I'm not sure that's I probably should have looked it up. And I didn't sorry I didn't either. And so I will smile not drink my drink. It's named for Jeffrey Saint Hillary who plundered the first zoological specimens from Portugal for Napoleon Bonaparte. Oh, classical plundering. This is old school plundered. That's where the differences part comes from the latter part of the scientific name. So it is the most well-known river dolphin and they have the barges bodies and brains of any freshwater dolphin and that is out of five species of freshwater dolphin. So there's not a ton. But it is the biggest of them. And it's actually it's a pretty big creature the male kind the averaged about seven and a half feet and the largest almost nine feet. Yeah. I saw pictures showed me, and they're bigger than you think they are. Yup. At weirdly pink. There in terms of meters. That's like two point three to two point seven meters. In case, they know have international listeners. So I kinda wanna make sure that point seven meters that's bigger than most walkies. I mean, you're not wrong nine feet tall. Right. Just horizontal instead of vertical. There we go. And they can weigh up to lake seven or sorry. Seven hundred no four hundred pounds. They may have two to four hundred pounds, which is like one hundred eighty one kilograms, and that's on average. So he could go up to like four hundred fifty at the most usually the females. They average around six and a half feet, which is two meters in about two hundred twenty pounds, which is one hundred kilograms so basically in broad terms the males measure slash way between sixteen and fifty five percent more than females. This makes them actually one of the most sexually damore Fiqh cetaceans in of some sexual morphism, right? And it's super unusual for river dolphins actually because the females are generally larger. So the opposite of every other reverb dolphin species. Basically, they can live up to about thirty years as far as we know. There's there's going to be a lot of as far as we know because because they've been somewhat studied. And it's hard to study them actually too because scientists have released vocal time identifying individual dolphins as their coloring changes constantly that would make it really hard challenge. Yeah. Plus on top of it to study them involves. Well, it involves a river trip to the Amazon, which is there's been there's been a lot more study on anthropologically. But that that involves the people surrounding the riverine people not necessarily dolphins. So there should be. I think more studied that happens with these Stephens, it'd be really interesting to find out more. But the majority of studies that we have are the people and their relation to these dolphins. And then general things scientifically about these dolphins most of its operation and some of the stuff we just we just don't know why they do what they do. Or why they look like what they look like anyway. So they can live up to thirty years, and they actually have forty percent more brain capacity than humans do so they're probably like waste murder than us. Make sense of D as most dolphins typically are very intelligent creatures. Probably the most notable thing about them as we've talked about is their usual pink coloring, even I'm curious about that. Is it something from iron in the diet or just an affinity for pink? Or what we don't really know. So they start gray actually when they're young. And then as they age they slowly turn into like a solid or sometimes blotched pink as they get older their final color be influenced by their behavior their location capillary placement. The clarity and the temperature of the water their diet exposure to sunlight, aka we're not really sure. Yeah. Histories that make up pink dolphin. Yes. So and individual dolphins they can range anywhere from mostly grey with some pink spots to almost Flamingo pink. And the the oldest ones they keep lightning in the end up tinging with like white blue gray, the older they get so like a normal adult dolphin in their prime would be pink. Basically, the males are typically pinker than the females and a really fun thing within is. They actually they will flush bright pink when they get excited kind of lake humans blushes. Oh, cool fun. But as the doorbell as that sounds, I honestly find them to be very creepy looking. They are they are a little on the weird side. Very weirdly shaped not at all like, you would expect like in your mind. You picture, you know, like a bottlenose dolphin, right? When you think of a dolphin? That's your image that you have. And these are like lumpy and this weird pink flesh color, that's magical from lavar away because they're pink, and you get closing. You're like this is like flesh colored, and they will you. That's what color you really are. He. Yeah. Like lump of human in the what it's so weird though, very weird and kind of expanding on weirdly shaped like I'm saying, they aren't sleek typical dolphin. They're very stocky with very tiny is have supergiant Mellon like four foreheads and they act as. Lens for their echo location, and their sonar, and they have these long tubular snouts with a bunch of peace in there. And it's creep because they'll open their mouth, and it's I mean dolphins don't have like a whole kind of like how we open our mouth. They have just flesh back there because it will open when they swallow something. And then they don't breathe through their mouths. They brew through their bulls. Right. So it's just a lump of flesh and then their mouth. It's so weird. It's it's just a different layout of the mouth and swallow intaking. And then they have a dorsal Rick rather than dorsal fin. So it's kinda more like a bump rather than an actual fin on their top. I do see that the in these pictures that I'm looking at for the most part, it seems it seems like they are a dolphin that made the conscious decision to lose some weight. That's. That comes from the the idea they probably live in a warmer climate than a lot of other. And then like didn't go to the gym ever. Yeah. Exactly. Yeah. Have the same muscle mass, but less less insulating fat? And that's something. We're used to seeing on dolphins to kind of around them out and make them more sleek and streamlined, and these dolphins just have a lot less of that. But yeah, that they definitely they definitely skipped all of the gym days. The ones that they got the promotional gym membership. And then never went. They went on January second and the number. Yeah. But we still love them. They're still adorable. You know, in the way that all creatures are in their own way. Well, who'd opinion that first seconds. Oh. About them in a little bit here. Love that head bulb. It's very protruding. Like when when they when they surface up to the water, you gets their dorsal bump and then like dorsal ridge. And then you get the top of their melon head is what comes out of the water six. So you get like to bumps and that's the dolphin which is pretty funny, honestly. But another cool thing they have a unique trait of stiff hairs on the end of their snout. So researchers they believe that it's used kind of as sensory organ on the muddy river bottoms, which makes sense. Sure. Yeah. During where water can't be signoff and see things like that very Mark on him fibia NHS, or you know, things like a catfish the just to kind of feel your way through areas where is don't work. So well. Another thing with that. Is they are often seen swimming upside down researchers they aren't sure why again, but it could be to help them. See the bottom of the river better because they have very small eyes, and very plump cheeks that might block their vision. Yeah. So that's possibility. I don't know. Yeah. I think they saw picture of like a flounder in the like, okay, guys. That's our other option is to move to the other side of our body. So let's just how about we learned to swim side down. It works out perfectly. Yeah. They are actually extremely agile creatures. They're very flexible. So unlike other dolphins, they have some unfusions vertebrae in their neck, which means they have like free floating vertebrae, and that means that they can actually turn their head a hundred and eighty degrees, which really cool. It allows them to maneuver around obstacles in the murky river environments. They have very keen eyesight and hearing, and then they also have really large flippers and fins that makes it so that their flippers can actually move in a circular motion. So that they can kind of they can swim for with one flipper while paddling backwards with the other and that lets them turn with more position because other dolphins like in the ocean. They have been entire ocean to just actually physically move around and turn. Whereas these guys aren't a river. They need to be able to. Make smaller movements in in order to turn. They don't have as much room to die. They don't have as much room to go to side to side. You know? So now, if I had to just I just guess and marine biologists may be ready to just just write me, all kinds of male. But really does look like if I if I guess more traditional bottlenose dolphin looks like it's more streamlined for if we were to compare it to like a cross country runner where they're going for long stretches of of straight line and very little turning now, it's just cover cover a lot of lot of miles while the Bodo is a little bit more like a free runner. More like someone who lays on their couch all day. Okay. Okay. Terry creatures compare? You wanna go that that interpretation as well? They they find value in clicker games on their phone that goes to the gym and walks on the treadmill, but just only walk on the treadmill, and it, hey, you know, very slow pace. If you're the kind of person that does that it's better than not walking to these guys they do swim in the you catch prion everything. But at a walking space, you can't expect to look like a ball of bottlenose dolphin anytime. These these aren't the kind of dolphins throw their mass up and do the beautiful jumping things that we see from spinner dolphins or bottlenose dolphins. No. These guys very very rarely if ever go up like leap about the water, and it's never fully breaching. They just don't have the room to dive a lot of reason to most of their action is double the surface aid is very so another another thing with them. And this is going to be a fun conversation is that the males are very sexually aggressive. I was wondering when we talk about dolphins say that like most often species, basically all dolphins are very sexually aggressive creatures male ones per se. That's that's what I've heard I've heard that by human standards. They're pretty. Pretty reagan. Pretty rapi. However dolphins are dolphins are what dolphins are. And I mean, and this is a whole other like became push human culture and cultural norms onto a creature that isn't a human and his appalled in their own way. Right. Like, it's thing. It's just facts. It is what it is. But they are like I said pretty rapi, and they will mate with like dead fish still mate with. Attempt to make with humans, which is creepy. Whatever flotsam and jetsam comes their way. So basically maybe avoid dolphins in the wild. Anyway, back to specifically the Boto often, the female is made with whether or not she is receptive to that meeting. Like if she's like pushing them away, they're like, oh, no. And they can tell this from marks that have happened or people have observed actual meeting and everything there's pretty intense competition for access to the females which it actually indicates sort of a polygamous mating system, which is one male mates with more than one female. But that's unpredictable at this point because very little actually known about their main system other than that mills are very aggressive sexually so. It has kept those this species go and since the miocene so good for them strew. When I I'm wondering if I should say this, but you should so. So in one of the study is that I was reading the posited that mill dolphins engage in homosexual sex. I totally think they probably got like two blowhole, essentially, really, okay, potentially also anal as well. I think but from what I understand that's posited. And then I read another article that they clarified the point with one of the researchers of the original study. And he said that it was because they were saying that there was some sort of penetration of the blowhole, which makes very little sense, actually like anatomically, so they clarified with the original person that did the study, and it was actually that. There wasn't like full penetration. It was just basically for lack of better words just plan around the blowhole. So I believe that. It's like, yes. And no kinda I guess is where that comes from. Behavior. There's a reason animals don't wear pants. They have. Of a different attitude towards sex, the NAS human. With them being sexually aggressive as they are. It does make a lot of sense. And I mean, they are into the only species in the world that engages in homosexual sex or even I'd like to take this opportunity given a after every episode, I get a little session from my mom, Logan. You shouldn't have said that or Logan kind of a press training kind of your modeling. Now, I kind of you know, in modest reflection of a couple minutes ago. And I said, of course, dolphins engage in homosexual not because dolphins are gay. No because animals often will I it's exactly you find a lot in the natural a nature. Just gotta listen to the whole persona. I'll be dig my way out. It's. It's time to. But yeah. So that that's a fun fact for lack of a better. For that. I think it's interesting if the dolphins are into it. It's plenty totally. That's good on that. You know? Except for the rape part. That's not cool except for the rape. He part, and I hope that. No. From my perspective been done to the blowhole. I'm sure that it can it seems tempting but through there. I would imagine that. It's that the muscles. There are strong enough that it wouldn't be a problem. But I'm more mean like the females are. I guess sort of victimized in this regard Lindsay okay in their defense. I'm looking through looking through this Google image search on on the Boto, and there's lots of pictures of the dolphin some cartoony some not then right in the center, there's a product, and it's an, and you know, I realized that listening to Logan read his Google searches is not the most interesting thing. But right the center those pink dolphins pink dolphins in a center. There's a product called Boto lube extreme pressure. And the fact that it exists. I feel like time's your change in for the Boto. You know, there's a little bit of of of carrying about. Boto lube is thing. They can't be all rapi. That's gotta be. That's gotta be true. I believe you. I don't believe you. I believe me. Okay. So now that we've talked about dolphins six let's move on to more of their behavior. Rather than me? I mean what other cryptos logical podcasts bring up the dolphin sex. I don't know we all do maybe I'll cut that other stuff out. But maybe I won't maybe I'll get to know way information. Yeah. We got to talk about dolphins is is to talk about how dolphins exist in ecosystem their overall stores. There's actually behavior is part of their natural state. And to be honest. I mean, objectively I'm not just talking to you particularly on talking to you anybody who ever. Here's this k- magically. You're a dolphin. You're gonna feel pretty sexy. I mean, really if you're. I don't know how you'd fill out one day barely AM. You are a dolphin like feeling kind of sexy now, not necessarily rapi, I guess that's on an individual level. But to be the kind of sexy existence, you know? Agree to disagree. I guess to me it's pretty creepy. Okay. Fair. Phil. Maybe if I was like a very aesthetically pleasing dolphin. Maybe. I'm just used to see them doing flips and stuff those are so cool. And these guys are not that dolphin. That's that's that's the dolphin. I'm thinking echo the dolphin suddenly flipper. Yeah. You're one of those adult dolphin, and and he would very powerful I can see that there's a sexual aspect to that. That being said we big check Mark on we covered the dolphin sex. Okay. They are much more solitary than other dolphins with typical ocean. Dwelling dwelling dolphins, you'll see them in large pods of of a bunch of dolphins together. And that is very much not the case with these guys. They are rarely seen in groups of more than three, and that's usually mother in her calves. So it's pretty atypical to see them gathered together in groups in if they are it's usually for like really food rich areas or sometimes remaining, but like I said, it's very unusual. But despite living in small groups are actually very curious and very outgoing and they frequently interact with humans and even other animals. So a cool thing with these guys is they occasionally form hunting groups with different species, which is really cool. They do. They hunt with to Kuchis, which is another. River dolphin. It looks it looks a lot like a smaller bottlenose dolphin with a pink belly. They're actually, Darlene. They're so cute. And they're about a third of the size of the Boto. A stick a comparison illustration in the show notes. Okay. So you would see these these animals together? Yeah. They occasionally form groups to hunt down like fish or whatever else they eat. If you wanna look the Taku she's up. They are spelled T U C, you X I s I. I still. Nothing like this on. Phonetic in. I highly recommend Google lean them and the Boto, and you can see what I mean this comparison thing, but the cure. She's there so cool there actually there's said to guide shipwrecks to land, and they may even return corpse to agreement family so it can receive a proper burial. They're very very considered really good creatures essentially where the Boto is much more, mischievous borderline pest guess. Yeah. It's an interesting dynamic. It's it's it's just prejudice based on that weird headline out. It's really where like in though. So I can't blame them. But and another creature that they hunt with our giant otters? Not the kind of others. If you're looking up offers, the giant ones are the ones that are actually pretty scary looking honestly. So Google Zion honors to on giant offers. I don't know a whole lot about the the modern ones. But what I do know is the prehistoric offers were terrified probably then. Yeah. They were they were bear sized. And they okay, I'm looking giant otter. So just what you think they are scary river monsters looking as opposed to like that like American abroad, or which is the most adorable thing ever. Yeah. Just just bottled up cute. These guys are like mean. You know, they they they are their territories. The Amazon they have to be tough through these are dire dire. Auditors love because you look at the picture of them at all you'll see our like them, ripping fishes thread in lake blood and guts on their teeth. They're just time. They hold St. still gets. But they kind of have these lake piercing a little bit dead is which I think are the creepiest thing about them. Some scary stuff in the Amazon. Yes, sure. That's like the very tip of the iceberg. So if you happen to visit the Brazilian, Amazon, and you want to go looking for some photos, they are most active during the early morning and the afternoon so say like six AM to nine AM or three pm to four pm. They're very bold and playful, and they're they'll rub up against canoes or they'll grab paddles with their mouth. They just like to tease people. They're not afraid of humans at all. Which is good and bad. It's good for those, you know, playful moments of oh, fun animal. However, the problem is is that anytime animals not afraid from humans. They get close to civilization garbage or something like that dolphins get caught in nets a lot. And so there is there is an abundance of mythology that surrounds these creatures. And honestly, that's why we're talking about them. Right. Yeah. Yeah. It does sound like there's been a lot of interaction with them. If if you are a member of the people live along, the Amazon, your lot of a lot of your source of food and culture. I mean, everything is around the river in the jungle, and well, the the dolphins are part of that are the myths that surround them actually keep them relatively safe, although humans are impacting them, but it's through like pollution or unintentional capture which were there like tangled nets because they're not afraid of boats. So we we are impacting them that way. But they're not actually actively hunted at all their their status is like a benevolent semi divine. Magic being has kind of helped protect them. It's considered extremely bad luck to harm them and even worse luck to eat them. Oh, okay. So they're in the same Cal category with a number of other animals like like the albatross. All right. Good. Luck animal not to be not to be don't you that one exactly? So some myths tell of Bodos turning into beautiful matter women during the night and luring members of the opposite sex down into the river never to return again. It's it's these supernatural women all they do is lead unsuspecting ministry watery deaths sirens. I mean, man. Okay. Another another myth speaks of the spirits of drown people entering into the bodies Voto 's if you go swimming alone, they might whisk you away to a magical underwater world beneath the river, which is called the Kante or something like that. That sounds awesome. Usually when you look at the fantasy other worlds of different places. It's you take the world around them, and you put it into some kind of Fe lens of an older world or something different. And to to imagine. What is created by the people who live in the Amazon, what is their fantastic supernatural world under the waters of the Amazon river when they live in a world. That's so magical and alive already. What is their fantasy version? I mean, so we'll talk about some of my thoughts at least on that a little bit more the end of this coup on so with that. Let's kinda just stop with our facts. We'll get onto the magic of magic cool. So the Incan Dotto are sheep Shifter's, and they live as the Boto Cordero's, which are the pink dolphins that we've just talked about in. In copious amount. The word end cantata means charmed or enchanted or enchanted one Portuguese and Spanish actually from what I understand. I need your interpretation of it is it's got a capsulated song element to it beautiful and enchanted, and then cantata I mean, even look similar so these creatures are very stevia or mischievous. However, you wanna say it, and they're very tempestuous beans there feared new test pissed. If feared in their respected any person who encounters in cantata is touched by its enchantment, the folklore that surrounds these creatures is widespread and persistent among the couple clo. Which are basically the peasants and fisherfolk of the Brazilian Amazon, and they're of mixed African European and indigenous ancestry, so they're the essentially there, the riverine people's the people that live on the Amazon river and stories about the Boto and slash and cantata and get a kind of use that entertainment because in this instance, of what we're talking about. They mean, the same thing it depends on where but some areas have interpretation that all Bodos are an cantatas and some have the interpretation that some but does cantata. So it just depends on where you are. But I digress. Works. Yes. Sometimes we do see that with supernatural creature that inhabits or kind of coexists so closely with a with a natural species things like. Where wolves for example. Okay. Some some wolves. You might see everywhere will most wolves you see are just all our same idea. We never know we never will know. Better. Just kill them all loaf Amal, and let them take over the world. I. Stories about the Boto have been told for decades, right years and years and years and years, and that's great for us. Because then we have many many stories that have been passed down. It's part of it's it's cemented itself. As part of a culture, essentially, like you're talked about a little bit before the end cantata come from a paradise ical underworld called the Kante. There is happiness and there's wealth in the unconscious, but sometimes they desire earthly pleasures of the human world, so often in cantata will fall in love with a human and will kidnap them and take them back to the land of an cantata her end Kante many hybrid children have been born from these affairs. Some of them not the children, but some of the cantata appear as attractive strangers some will appear rather as husbands were lovers. So it could be someone, you know, could be someone that you don't know. They will also capture people that includes children and adults who wander too close to the Emma's on so many Brazilians fused to go the water. If it if it has nothing to do with like their livelihood. You know, Festas hope him saying that right? Stop fiestas because it's Portuguese. So it's Festas carnival. Or festive Unia which is Brazilian celebration in June. They will attract these creatures as they are very musically, gifted they loved dance, and they lifted drink and seduce men and women often resulting in illegitimate children. So if you meet a hint some charming stranger at one of these don't go off with them as you may never come back. Good advice for to anywhere. But I'm sure Brazil mothers will warn warn their children as they go after these festivals. Like, if you made a handsome stranger don't go off with him, which is actually very watch for the webbed feet and actually don't have feet. They don't know. However, their transformation is never fully complete. They will always have a bald spot on the top of their head where its blowhole remains course, can't they can't give up that that that beautiful Pete's just for that reason always keep their head covered usually with like broad brimmed straw hats. And this actually does make sense 'cause like we talked about, but but does don't breathe out of their mouth they breathe out of their blowhole. So why would their mouth disappear if they're transforming makes? Makes somewhere that you can easily cover it. Yeah, they need. So at dusk. The pinks often are or the Butto they'll shape shifts from dolphin into most reports say like tall pill, handsome, young man in white clothing. Some other sources say that women shift to but a lot of them said specifically tall pill, handsome, young man in white clothing. Specifically their metamorphosis from dolphin to human has been witnessed very infrequently. It's always at night once in a while they'll stay too long at a party in the can be seen swiftly running toward the river morphine from human to dolphin. And so before dawn they'll jump into the water and just shift back into being dolphin again. As for the females of this the Bota or the an cantata. They're aggressive females they're outside of cut of the normal passive expectations for females in this area. She's kind of an evil animal woman. She's not. Not a sexual revolutionaries. So she's we see women in our culture. We're like she's very forward. She's very like she knows what she wants. And it's it's totally fine for a woman to be dominant in say, I want this, you know, whereas in this society, it's women are expected to be very passive in that regard. And we we all know that that is kind of a re very very very much the case in most of the world, actually. Yeah. And we're still getting. But, but it is president of culture. So she's viewed as evil or animalistic in this and not not a revolutionary in that on the flip side of that the Bodo stories kind of allow people to express impossible wishes, and they're kind of living outs. Deviance vicariously escapism, you know, through these creatures, but it's still kinda supports the status quo rather than subvert norms and orderly. So it's it's kind of just it's it's a crutch to do what you wanna do without changing anything. Really gotcha. Yeah. Okay. The narrative it kind of provides the opportunity to evade talking about any sort of infidelity or sexual deviance and often, unfortunately, having to take responsibility for abusive actions. What? It's a sensually a very convenient scapegoat. Which I think is likely why myth is still alive. Although the magic part is pretty cool too. And all the enough the scapegoat is next creature? Okay. So some facts, some fun facts more fat more. Facts. But these are cool things about the an Qatada cool things shamans say that it's very breath has power and the sound that it utters gasps can send poison darts flying as if from a blow gun. Don't eat anything that the Boto offer you if you eat it, you'll never come back. So it's kind of that underworld lake Patey. That's a pretty common thing. You hate. He's sorry. Has that? Be very careful. Do not take what is offered. It's nothing. You know that kind of thing. Exactly. Yes. Oh, man. I cannot wait to see the live action Aladdin just saying I can I I loved the Disneyland. Disneyland version. I think I'm I think I'm more excited for somebo to be honest. Just because it's it's Tim Burton. I saw the preview and I cried in the previous. So I already know that already know that this is going to be a problem. Anyway, I digress. Again, some say that, but it was have power over storms, which makes sense. I mean, when weather is so unpredictable you'll want to have like blame it on someone that's controlling it, essentially, whether it's God or a creature or someone being bad. Never. I'd imagine. It's it's both power over storms and also power to stop happening. Flooding if a crop doesn't grow the way you want to it's it's very easy to find something to pin that on instead of just accepting. Well, maybe we live in a place where the weather isn't the same reared how it's like that in three and four. The are said to help those that are drowning removing them from the river, which is pretty cool. I wouldn't be surprised if that's a little bit. In fact, whether it's a benevolent thing, or it's like a weird struggling thing out of my river. Maybe a little bit both or or. Hey, there fellow pink Wigley thing you want a bang might wanna leave the river. Whether or not you're drowning. Just makes it exponentially worse. They are considered friends of fishermen in the Amazon region. So they they help with fishing and they'll see fli conduct canoes during storms, which I think is pretty cool. They have the power to hypnotize humans, which is why humans are irresistibly drawn to the river and take into the an Kante. Apparently, there is a concoction of Yuka. Let's say, yucca, yuca root, flour and dried crush, chili peppers spread over the water at the location of the creature's appearance to break their hold over the human pretty sure. I could be wrong, yucca and chili peppers. I do know that has a very fibrous root, and it can be used for a lot of -plication magin spreading crush chili peppers in the water is really a good idea. I can't couldn't hurt say, yuck. The Cas probably not doing anything. It's just lower would just lump up and sit at the bottom. But I'd imagine the chili peppers. Probably aren't aren't great for the animals live inside river. Maybe. Yeah. But at the same time, I just just a guess I'd imagine it maybe just a lot like sloughs off the surface or something. Yeah. I know if chili powder into a soup, you have to really stir it in to get it to go under the water, but I'm just magically being a fish in this like baffle of chili like hitting your eyes. You know, it would be pretty terrible Beth full of Chile different. Oh, dan. So it's it's not unheard of for an enchanted one or the Boto to to dwell on land on land long-term and typically the lake make a living as a musician, which I kind of see as the the magical aspects that these teachers have and magic that is music or how musicians tend to kind of nomadic -ly wander to make a living. You know, that kind of thing makes sense and the ability to sing a song or tell a story. That's a very special thing in a lot of cultures. That's very supernatural that something I I don't know. The obvious example is the the skulls the warrior poets of the Vikings. They were they were kept in traded like action figures after the battle just so they could tell story it's been a valuable commodity for centuries. Centuries entries, millennia even. So a person who kills about. I'll is always punished they won't succeed in killing anything else. Like, they won't be able to kill fish or game until they are finally restored to health by occur door, someone who's gonna cure them of this ailment that the the Boto has that killing a as cost them. Right. So back onto some more. I guess drawn out facts those were some of my short little cool things about them. But a body parts are used in love terms. It's mainly there is and their genitalia. So holding the eye of about oh, what's hockey to a member of the opposite? Sex is thought to make one highly sexually attractive because no one can resist the Bodos gays because it's enchanting, right? The China Taylor are more powerful, they are dried and ground. And there. Applied to one's own genitalia for either more pleasure or for more Putin. See so this happens with both males and females. They applied the opposite sexes genitalia to their own which is a little bit gross. But you know, it is what it is. Yeah. Yeah. We do see that in a lot of a lot of cultures. And it's not really our place to put a judgment on it. However butchering animals for these this purpose. Just doesn't seem like the best. Use of our time of the the the beautiful animates agree shouldn't be ground up in the Cowboys practice. It's actually tabu in riverine areas. It's more popular along the coast essentially, but it's a friend's extremity of these terms actually showed that these are not from the Butto or the Takuji dolphins. It's not from either of them if they are dolphin origin at all they're from the dolphin from the Atlantic Ocean where they might be other animals entirely like not dolphins at all. So I mean, who's even gonna know right people that are buying these. Well, yeah. When it's. When it's dry. It's not the power that we all have ourselves through some other catalyst to give ourselves confidence. Or I mean, our our brains have an insane amount of power. If we're convinced that something is true Zo. It's. So there's something to be said for that type of thing. I guess, you know, there's a there's a rock that'll Iraq. There are stories that boaters have gone insane after an encounter with an cantata, but typically the creatures don't cause any harm that being said. Other accounts report illness insanity or even death indicated by cantata. So there's very much to sides of the coin to these creatures new off you make eye contact with them, you get Mahato debut show, which is creatures evil eye, and you may become crazy and attempt to jump into the water because the dolphins are calling for you. Or you may have nightmares for the rest of your life. Generally, this can be cured by shaman assume if you didn't drown I. These dolphins can cause illness known as. Judy Judy aria. Yeah. Judy aria Devoto or something. Okay. Sometimes it refers to a specific illness where the dolphin enters wants home at night paralyzes, the occupants, rapes the man or woman, and then leaves jumps into the water and turns back into it often. And then these intrusions are repeated frequently and the victim becomes ill loses their appetite dies. And then it's soul is taken to the bottom of the river to serve as the dolphins concert. It's pretty Ted, exactly. Very Dracula esque. It's revisiting again. And again, saps your strengthened day on. I mean there there are other less drastic types of illness. Also tributed to BOTAS the physical symptoms of dolphin possession or enchantment which like they're like thinner or your lust, your listless, or you're very pale. They will actually suggest hepatitis which is very common. I believe very common often deadly in the Amazon a lot of the a lot of the so-called exotic illnesses that took a lot of explorers. They were mostly just the people not taking care of themselves and being in a strange place or introductions of new illnesses and everything. Yeah. Yeah. New illnesses and things a lot of it is well, you have to be careful when you're out on on on the river, take care of yourself and. We immune system drops down when you get wet and cold and you're eating strange foods. And and I mean, these are also on this is that easily pass among people to or that you're born with you know, I mean, so another few other things they've suggested they have Titus or it could be a name Lia or malaria. These are all very common things in that region. And so it makes sense that there's this unexpected illness that comes about, and you need a reason to pin. Why you're sick, right. So it's a culture bound syndrome. This dude, aria Deba, tow, it's a culture syndrome. Any kind of covers in explains away a multitude of illnesses. Yeah. So this occasionally malevolent nature of the Boto it earns the epithet of sim regatta, which is shameless shameless is a term typically used in Brazil to refer to people as incapable of moral of self valuation. I guess I guess you would say that like narcissistic or someone that acts out a lot. Maybe. Sure. Yeah. Just a never never has that interactive moment. They never know. How? Okay. Is what I'm doing? Okay. Morally sound it isn't a term. That's typically actually used to reference any animals other than humans. But I think that here is kind of a projection of bad human behavior onto a creature due to the shape, shifting nature of the myth. They aren't solely man or animal, and that kind of blurs the line a little bit there in general, the similarity or if you're going for anthropological terms, the ice morphism between human behavior end the kind of shameless photos. It's very obvious. They're kind of a foil for human conduct and the nature of life. So misfortune illness good and bad actions and relationships they can be projections of like intruders that come into your home or people that are oppressing you or that are abusing you. And they're really they're really meant to convey kind of. Capriciousness strangeness of the world at large. And it does seem like that's that's really what it is. It's it's whatever your particular boogeyman is it can be called Boto and injects. Aspects often testicle creatures are cool, especially when they're based on a real animal. They you can see in front of you. I'm a little kind of disturbed that the cantata were and are being used as kind of an easy way to escape or to to skew excuse rape. And abuse. I mean very much like we talked about in our modern folklore couple couple of weeks ago. The part of part of the show is to also look at what people are really afraid of what the real risks are out there if two people, and that's it's not an easy thing to talk about. But I think it's necessary for going to really look at where. On them. Right. And and this this particular story seems like it does have a certain party to evacuate. The dolphins are very actually aggressive and will rape each other. It's an easy high to this kind of they make them again that that perfect scapegoat with added magical lore. But but real human behavior is happening behind the scenes, and I feel like it's not okay. I'm a lot of victims of rape and fatherless children in society is not good. But I also can see how this myth kind of progressed overtime despite the awful subtext. I think it's easier to kind of deal with something on a personal level or to not deal with something kind of honest Seidel level that release sucks in a way that is magical infant tastic in kind of takes away the need to confront things. But that being said, I'm also. Holding a society that isn't mind to standards that are mine, and as an in the probably really have to be flexible in your thinking when it comes to societies that are morally different from, you know, what's acceptable in our own, right? Our society grew in its own way, as did this other society. We don't have all the information and honestly morality is relative. Anyway, especially in a social context, you know. Yeah. Everyone's still figuring things out. All we can do is be kind. Rates. So I was going to use them encounters stories and stuff, but I'm actually not going to tell you I some because there were too many to choose room. There is a ton more about these creatures. And if you want to learn about that and get a bunch of firsthand accounts of them, check out the book dance of the dolphins or tens of the dolphin by Candice later. She's an anthropologist who collected more than two hundred hours of dolphin stories during fourteen months of fieldwork from nineteen eighty to nineteen ninety two it's super good book. And it's a really really good look the culture in this area. And honestly, we have barely scraped the surface of whether is to know here. Yeah. It's a whole other world. And I'm glad that the someone's really put some time into focus to folks. But I think this one is probably the best one. If you're really interested in the cantata specifically. So now, we are at the time of our episode where we talk about alignment. Will be yes, indeed. This is gonna this. We're gonna we're gonna keep this kind of a more regular thing as we as Lindsay, and I venture into our D campaign. She's kind of become a little bit more immersed in in what it means to to have an alignment, I've been watching a challenge ridiculous of critical role. And this is definitely think for me. So let's see where are we gonna put them on the axes? First of all, I kind of think that that's what they are. They are they are chaotic and I wanna put him in chaotic neutral. They actually bet you they're chaotic good. I think it depends categories often misunderstood and often. I think that they in general spare probably actually neutral to evil. But I'm very much leaning more towards troll like specifically neutral, and then just changing via which creature it specifically is, you know, just just like Hugo them of us are good. And some of us are not so good. But these guys are well, also, I'll admit that. I'm taking a somewhat selective view of of which stories are attributed to them in which stories are actually about. I mean, I would just say some have really bad intentions and some have really. Benevolent intentions, right? The ones that are helping you based on that. There's there they could almost be a player character race. Definitely they're less defined by what they are defined. My who watch the next race after like can coups. Or totals is going to be the end. I debate you could play them. It'd be pretty cool. I mean you end up on the spectrum of chaotic for shore. But whether what what you would play there. Definitely up to you. And what decisions you want to make for sure? But. Yeah. But yeah, okay. I can see what I can see where you're putting on there. I think they would probably be a magical beast. They're not aberration deffers are undamaged or shape some sort of magic and hand there. What do you think? No, okay. If you kill one, what is its true form? Probably dolphin probably dolphin to me. I agree. I think they're they're born dolphin. They died often everything else is as you know, ever changing is the Serbian worked fine pre-campaign because they can shift to human than they can walk around there. We just they could it could be interesting. Right. You guys. Let us know. What you think about that? Would you want to play and cantata? Yeah. Yeah. I I think there's something that characters might encounter on a on a river boat section of an adventure. Maybe a side quest. Maybe only one person sees them. And isn't sure if they should tell the party about them. I think they could be used in a lot of different storytelling. Well, first of all great job with that was a lot of fun. Thanks for being our little tour guide, Amazon the end can Tato taste. Really interesting creatures. So I encourage more research into them because there's a lot more out there.

AT#735 - Amazon River Cruise in Peru and Colombia
"Bags back on the road and read. It's real fast. Board tampa traveler episode seven hundred and thirty five today the amateur traveler talks about catfish and caimans jungles and tuk-tuks vs and parana as we take the slow boat on the amazon in peru and colombia. Welcome to the amateur traveler. I'm your host chris christensen. Let's talk about the amazon. I'd like to welcome to the show. Will conway from the baggage. Claim podcast ed. Hey baggage claim dot com. Who's come to talk to us about. The north west amazon will welcome to the show. Thanks for having me. I really appreciate. Where are we talking about specifically. Let's put it on a map here. I her for show. So we're we're talking about a very specific stretch of the amazon rainforest. Really the sun river that takes us from matisse here which is the southeastern most city in columbia all the way down the river and into peru to keep dose which is very large sprawling metropolis in the middle of the amazon rainforest and northeastern Excellent and why should someone go to this part of the world. Why should someone go the amazon. Yeah i think one of the things. I really wanna talk about an advocate for in. This conversation is that. I think the amazon is a lot more accessible than people. Think now. if you're listening to this and you're into things like disneyland in cruises you can imagine that this would necessarily be the rice right fit as as fun as those things can be. But if you're considering a trip to something like thailand or switzerland the amazon has come with this. I think the stigma this imposing almost intimidating quality. That if i go to the amazon i may die. You mean that thing that that thing the piranhas in the snakes in the mysterious river of death that that kind of thing. Yeah yeah pretty much. I think it just ends up getting skipped. I know i came in with a certain level of fear and i ended up finding the amazon a lot more accessible. The people are incredibly warm in courteous and helpful and a whole it took about a day or two to ease into it but once i did i ended up backpacking for about eight months. This was about two weeks. May trip is the most incredible said memories. That i have for my entire trip will tell us more about the itinerary. You have in mind force. Where are we going to start. Yes so we're going to start in the teesta. Which if you think about colombia as a country might new head kind of have a trapezoid block comes from panama over brazil down to peru and ecuador if you really have to zoom in down on a map there's actually this sort of it would be a peninsula except that it's entirely landlocked down in the southeast corner. That stretches all the way down to the amazon river. And that's where the is so. The tci is a small cities like forty fifty thousand people in really stand as like get like an outpost on the edge of the rainforest at first latifa is gonna feel like any traditional small town in columbia. If you've spent much time in colombia to feel similar to that but for context a really warm and inviting but simultaneously this edgy atmosphere. Which will feel similar. But then all the sudden these elements creep in you. Just get this sense that you know. This isn't traditional columbia. Traditional south america. I i'm sort of in this alternative world so i'll give you an example that there's a park in downtown the tc. It's called park sentence. Dead and sentended for twenty two hours out of the day. Looks like any other park in south america kinda got. The plaza are misfield with beautiful fountain in the middle a catholic church off to the side street vendors and men smoking cigars and park benches and then at about four o'clock in the evening you hear the faraway screeching sounds and within five minutes. The sky is entirely black and there are thirty thousand. They're called monk winged parakeets that are screeching and swooping so low that you have to duck because they're weaving in and out. This happens for about two hours every night and then they sort of go to sleep in it. It chills off but the whole city just gets come by the sensation specifically this one park Interesting and you were talking about latisha shown where it is just so people can put it on a map. We're talking about a little panhandle of columbia and that wrangler latisha is basically is where brazil and colombia and peru. all meet. Yeah that's exactly right. You can actually walk into brazil from the teacher and zanu just crossed the line. Depending on the time of the year. Your watch is going to have to go. Go back one or two hours because you've crossed over officially to brazil and then there is this little bow on the amazon river. That houses one lady. Who is working for the colombian government. She's the exit from columbia next door. There's another lady sitting there and she's stamps it into peru. I'm sorry and all of a sudden transition to peru canada. What else are we going to do. Well we're in lucia before we get on the river here. I would highly recommend latifah itself. It's going to be sort of limited in what you can do but there are few things that you can absolutely start latisha. One of them is. I would recommend. I've by the way no relationship with the person. I'm about to say. So i i want to name that going forward because i had a wonderful experience at this hostel called casa de And honestly i had to google that before we had a conversation today. Crispy cause mayhem Louise's hostile and the best ones are right. The best ones are associated with the person who runs it. yeah. I get this unbelievably warm and inviting her. Cinches been running this hostile for decades. And she's in her mid sixties just the sweetest person in my brain. I'm pretty confident that she actually runs of latisha. She seems to know everybody. She's kind of built. This little. take matriarchies issues unbelievable. But she actually helped me in a close friend of mine. Organized tore down the river so there are basically two ways to operate a down. The river towards iquitos one is fast. Boat and one is the slow boat. The fast boat is going to be a bumpy twelve hour ride on a speedboat jetboat. Okay yes japa- it's gonna take you quickly down down the amazon and it stops off once every two hours now. I haven't taken the full way to akitas. But i was on this boat for forty five minutes to our time to go to sort of increasing. We'd distant and remote villages down the amazon river and from there. You can end up with different tour. Guys are gonna take your do different things so one of the most unbelievable things that you can do in the amazon is actually at night. They'll take you out on a small dory and you'll cower down the amazon into these little tributaries and go basically fishing for cannons. Which are these outside two foot long. Alliens yeah exactly exactly and the night. I did it. It was just me and my friend. Jeff rosen irish. Guy met and this guide that we were with. Who is this young guys like tony to twenty three. The sky was blanketed in these really thick clouds and the moon was poking through. The whole world can ahead this silver tint and we're shining flashlights. In every once in a while you'd catch these red is it's a crocodile. Two foot long less intimidating crocodile we slowly approach and then we were terrible at it. A bit submerging. Swim away long before we ever got the. But that was kind of a blast. Can you say fishing for came in. So you're not using a rod and reel. i know no net based got up and then if you are incredibly adventurous and aggressive guide. You're going with your bare hands. But i had no coming for that. Maybe maybe you're going with. Your guide can go for his bare hands. And your best friend can. I wouldn't recommend it through south candidate. Yeah so that. That was unbelievable. One thing you do with rod and reel with a bamboo rod which is kinda fascinating in basically a little bit of twine at the end. Is you go fishing for piranhas. Which is pretty wild okay and if you think about the classic saying about parameters of denver responding to motion this is entirely true. If you're used to normal fishing where you kind of let it set a new out the Real to say you essentially want to trick the fish into believing you're not there with peron. It's the opposite. You bang the bamboo against the surface of the water and try to attract them and they just come swarming in. It's pretty wild okay. And by the way one of the easiest things you can do can there are. There are quite a few of them. Can't going back to the fear that amazon could kill me. Yes maybe i shouldn't have led with rana anything else before we get on the boat here. You're you're taking the slow boat. Yes so we took the slow boat. If we're talking about a lesson right now res- ten days or seven days or two weeks. The sailboats gonna take give for five so the fast boat might be your decision here. I had a wonderful experience on this slow boat. I think there's something to be said for sinking into sort of this experience of having nothing to do except watch the world's most powerful river flow by because that was an unbelievable experience. Now if i quickly google river trips on the amazon. I'm gonna find something where i've got this luxury cabin and it's gonna be five hundred dollars a night and there's going to be probably a steward for my cabin and gourmet meals. We're not talking about that right. We're talking about something more of a backpacker budget. I'm sure somebody could tell you a story about a luxury liner on. I am not a person chris. That's fine so what are we talking about. If you had to describe the boat so where are you sleeping first of all. You don't have the luxury cabin. I wouldn't say there's a single cabin in this boat so the way this this ship is set a think about a a reasonably sized family. But that's gonna be three stories tall big white ferry. The ground floor is transporting goods basically between latisha and keeps us so that floor their big crates a fruit the livestock on our as as welsh's under supplies and things like that and the two floors above that when you enter the boat or completely hollow it just totally empty big open cavernous floors and then you have to buy a hammock in advance. You string up the hammock and that ends up being your sort of home base so me and my friend jeff hung up our hammocks and there. We live four four days on this rusty old ferry that taxes us down the river. It's pretty wild and you have to buy a hammock. If i had my own hammock would just be buying the spot. So you're essentially paying for the spot on the boat. We're not talking about a lot of money here. We're talking about what was the number is i believe. Eighty thousand colombian pesos. Which is going to translate to about twenty bucks twenty five bucks here. S were many days for report about this new housing so pretty much exactly the same as what we were talking about at the five hundred dollars a day. Yeah pretty much the same experience. So that's gonna buy me a place to string my hammock and then meals are on. Top of that meals are included. I wouldn't consider the meals to the phenomenal. I was expecting now. There's also a little snack bar where you can get a cheeseburgers and things like that on the boat. They've bars out there to a little bit of a community. Feel there's music playing. There's all sorts of interesting people. Most of whom are blue collar working class folks from peru colombia brazil who are basically commuting to one or the other city between the teeth indicates us and we talk about meals for some rice and beans and something else. I'm guessing. yeah yes so. If you're familiar with columbia there's a staple dish. In central colombia visit be it's called bendix. Hope heiser when he get to the amazon. It's essentially the same meal then. There hope says essentially just going to be rice and beans and other chicken or beef depending on the situation. On the you're gonna sub that out for fish for fisher. There are a lot of amazing things about the amazon. The food is not one of them not a particular. So yeah you're gonna you're gonna end up on this boat for days. We had four nights and the morning of the fifth day. That experience was at first kind of intense. You end up read. There's nothing to do you on this boat and they're not there to entertain you and not at those rates. They're there to get transportation transport you from it'd be and that's that's really the priority. The experience ends up becoming incred. I found it. Be incredibly like meditative cathartic. In sort of beautiful sense he can sit on the ballot. This ship and the boat is moving so slowly that if you were walking on the shore next to the boat you'd be moving at about the same pace so it's crawling up the amazon when you were going upstream. Yes yes it coming. The other direction understanding is the trip is actually one day shorter. Ever done it that way. But that's because the current so you're on this boat you watch the world go by and the year on this incredibly wide thick muddy river and he end up seeing some wild things. If you said at the ballot this boat for long enough at one point it took me probably twenty minutes tied. Densify what i was looking at there was something swimming next to the boat That was at first. I thought like a bear Wise i thought something of that magnitude about fifteen twenty minutes later. Somebody else came out and i speak very little spanish but it was like kiss and basically he at his head it was a catfish. Catfish decides it a prius mark. It was okay that we're talking about a big animal but then you're just gonna watch these beautiful hereon swoop and little villages go by people motoring down with dory's it's very peaceful very cathartic experience in is the boots vote is gonna stop along the way and pick up and drop off people at different stops. Yes but very infrequently maybe once a day okay and does it then crews at night or does it stay in porter. No we're cruising at night. You're making progress all night long. The thing that's interesting about the night is it often rains in the amazon. That's rainforest better checks out so me and my irish friend. Jeff sat on the dow this ship one night. Light drizzle was coming down and you can see at the treeline than it just goes flat for miles and miles and miles. We're watching this just intense fork light income down in every direction but it was dead silent. You didn't actually hear the lightning. It was just incredibly beautiful experience.

That's h. e. l. p. better help dot com slash traveler and thanks to better help for sponsoring this episode of amateur traveler. So you mentioned going out in fishing for caymans one night. Was that off voters before you got on the boat that was prior to it. So can you kind of did batista and from the tci. Through casa de as and. Louisa did this three day toward down the amazon to what essentially amounted to increasingly remote villages of fifty or a hundred people and it was during the course of that that we did the fishing for both came in and browns and we say downward doing downriver which in this case is to our east yeah yes exactly. So we're talking about a very odd stretch of the river. Where does a kind of curves so. I'm using downriver up river probably in the wrong direction here. But i'm thinking about it in terms of which way we were powering and escape. We're powering towards the kito. Okay up river okay. Yeah yeah my count it. It's so for this part of the trip. We want to bring a good book in a pair of binoculars. What else should i bring with me to get the most out of this part of the trip. You should bring a good book and a pair of binoculars. There isn't a lot else. I would make sure. Your iphone is fully charged and downloaded with every podcast. Every episode of the traveler's. Always have that so exactly exactly so. This is an external power. Brecca might be useful to because you're not having a place to plug in. Your ear is what it sounds like the guy who runs the little snack bar there. Yep has on the boat. we're on. He had one functioning power black. And you would let you plug it in an hour at a time for. I think it was like two thousand colombian pisses fifty cents gannet. You're gonna wanna parabak. I didn't have my phone died before the first night. So i was. I was just reading canada and the end up justice bizarre two. There's this psychological thing that happens. The answer the amazon which start starting the tci. And if you've just flown in from the us say just flew out of phoenix new yorker san jose. You've just come from this. Large metropolis at first latisha is gonna feel like this. Outpost like almost dairy large campsite with motorbikes. But then you go down the river in you end up in these tiny little villages into those folks into you. After two days latisha becomes the big city so the entire world transforms and your relative understanding of scale becomes entirely different in these. Little villages is the dominating factor and people are just working around it. But then you take the boat into a key dose. It's a sprawling metropolis of five hundred thousand people sober context atlanta's like four hundred and ten thousand. I think so. This is a huge city and it has an incredibly odd distinction of being the largest city in the world that is inaccessible by road. So you have to either fly into akitas or you have to vote in the way. We can't get their bicarbonate like could you imagine if you couldn't couldn't drive into at that team's wild then you end up in a keita's which is an absolutely wonderful wonderful city. It has a similar energy to a lot of cities in south america with chew twists. One is the twist i applied to latisha. Which is sort of this. Understanding of the amazon surrounding it in a very serious since in the other is this twist of mysticism or spirituality. Which i i want to identify your listeners. Iquitos is the capital is sort of comes from this long tradition of pre colonial indigenous people in south america who had lean spiritually into iowa. Which is the psychedelic day. Actually they won't call it a drug so if you call drug you'll you'll get a stern look in talking to they call it medicine and their shannon's in the guide these retreats. It's deeply catholic city but that autism is twisted in interconnected with this mysticism that's tied deeply into the surrounding nature. And this ritualistic psychedelic experience. That folks from that part of the world often partaken okay. I would highly recommend iquitos as a jumping off. Point for sort of visit to the natural world in terms of things to do in a key. Does this city is really going to be a launch pad similar to latisha so one of the beautiful things that you can do there is you can go to these. Incredible animal reservations where they essentially rehabilitate wildlife. That's in bad shape for some reason or another that you'll end up first of all learning a ton but also playing with some adorable monkeys. There was one that actually it was so attached to my head that a refused exit. There's a guy guarding the exit is like you know. You can't take the monkey with you right now is like i know that. I think you have to tell the monkey though. He was so when the guard tried to take him off. He actually wrapped his tail. My neck their tails are powerful. Awesome because monkeys like joking and this is monkey island in my in the right place. This is muggy Eastward de las manos useless dillas mona. That's correct there are a couple others that have also heard phenomenal. Things about one of them says amazon rescue center which is just outside of key does and if you go back in the direction of this an indigenous word. I'm going to pronounce terribly but i believe the pronunciation is micro chica monkey sanctuary. That's outside latisha. Okay you want you get into indigenous languages. I can be of no help to you. All actress pronunciation hoping for a lifeline. But not nothing. I would say that the general thrust of the trip is you have these two cities incredibly different and they're separated by essentially two hundred twenty two hundred and thirty miles of river. And you you just recognize again big city in the us or europe or somewhere else. Your sensation is going to be that. We people sorta figured out this whole nature thing and we. We conquered that that on. We're moving on to other things you go to these places and you recognize. There's just a sense of your own. Smallness and when combined with some of the mysticism and spirituality imbued in the culture. Especially in the keith. Does it very difficult not to internalize some of those sensations not to get too metaphysical but one of the big things to come out of the amazon for me was just the sense of smallness that sort of standing on a beach in looking out is absolutely one of the more beautiful experiences that i recommend. Now one question for the the amazon part of it. The river cruises i think about when we talk to people for instance who have done the trans siberian railway. Red road they talk about the first hour. You're looking at it and going. Wow look at all the trees and then then you see trees for a week and there is a somewhat of sameness to the experience. I'm assuming with this. You're going to have moments of wildlife spotting and then a lot of trees am i on the right track. You are exactly right. The level of boredom that comes along with the slow boat that definitely underselling that exists for sure and i'm not trained to save. Boredom is a bad thing in this case for some people that might be a great way to take a break right. Bring good book or bring a good book that happens to be a book about birds or wildlife or something like that and enjoy slowing down and certainly disconnecting even if you have the cellphone charged. You're not gonna be finding a signal. I'm guessing that's all that is absolutely true. And the other element of it is that you're surrounded by people who if you were to just go to deny or go to a big city. You're not to meet quite the same type of people that you know in a big city like lima where sort of oriented around tourism. Sure you're meeting tour guides in your meeting waiters at restaurants. And you're meeting various people like that when you're on this boat you're meeting do. Whoever is coincidentally on this boat at that time and it turns out that those people are wonderful crazy at played poker with ten proven solas with these two guys on this boat for about six hours straight one day and we just laughed and had a great time. You end up and i have no spanish whatsoever. By the way it's just entirely a relationship built around is and whatever language you can come. It's kinda cool that there's some beauty in that too. I think we'll one question would be. It seemed like maybe on a boat like this. That having more spanish would open up to more interaction just because you have some time. Oh that's that undoubtedly true. Okay wish that. I took spanish more seriously in high school especially on this boat. I completely relate to that. I had to learn spanish an adult. 'cause i wasn't smart enough to learn it as a kid. I didn't think spanish to be honest. I didn't think. Spanish would take me anywhere. Because i grew up in an agricultural region. Where spanish was the language of the fields and the younger version of me. Said why do i wanna learn spanish and guess what language i've had i've had to use more often than any other foreign language that i've learned spanish so i'd love to tell the younger me To study his spanish but there any young folks in highschool listening to this there are a couple of subjects. You can ignore in school. I wouldn't recommend language to be one of the ones you ignore it because the end up like me on a weird vote in the middle of the amazon and not be able to talk to anybody and it's a little weird and unfortunate so take them seriously supplies excellent anything else. We want to talk about in terms of the overall itinerary. First of all or things that people should know to do or not to do whether on the strip there is one experience chris. That was a little bit silly. I'm gonna forget the name of it but in akita's there's this area right on the river. That is this interlocking web of lagoons think about venice. They actually call it that. So it's buildings on either side and these these lagoons. There's a tower that goes through those lagoons. You can do it if you want. Didn't have a terrible experience with it. I would recommend just walking down to those and exploring these really intricate interesting. This web of city built into the river. 'cause it's fascinating got and it sounds like that may be the and i'm looking at this trying to know how to pronounce that the kista kushtia own area so i would highly recommend taking a walk through that area but they do. They have tore boats. That take you through venice style. If the guy on the bag sort of thing to sink like venice is not Well i'd pay extra for that. I wouldn't actually recommend that boat is something about it just felt a little gimmicky. Had no real tie into the actual culture of the city. It was just a thing that they were doing to make few bucks on tour so that might be something to stay away from. But i would highly recommend going down to those lagoons because that was that was phenomenal candidate. Anything you all. We talked about bringing a book and bringing Maybe an extra battery for your cell phone anything else. You should pack for this trip. You're not gonna be able to pack it. I don't think you will maybe check the luggage. But you're gonna want more mosquito spray than you cover much mosquito spray. Chrissy bought new life to this point by all of that again and bring it to the it. 'cause it's gonna be a lot. I don't suppose mosquito netting above my hammock on the boat because you're moving even though it doesn't feel like there's wins only. Mosquitoes are not able to stay in one place and the mosquitoes on the boat. Very fortunately are not a serious problem. Yes every every other place. You're going to be under mosquito. Net any reinforced. Very very much for your standing in the prettiest spot. You saw where you standing. What are you looking at. You know where i'm standing. I am on the slow boat coming into keita's at the edge of the amazon so behind you from where we just came there miles and miles and miles as far as the eye can see of Beautiful green lush trees. And then you look ahead where the boat is going and the port of iquitos is actually incredibly colorful. These beautiful pastel houses and buildings for some reason the ferry boats and the barges and everything in the port is very flamboyantly colored sir going to get these green and orange tugboats in these really deep bright red bow. There's something about the monotony of the amazon rainforest. And then this rainbow of colors. You come into the city so that would be. That'd be my pick. Excellent one thing that makes you laugh and say only in the proven amazon. So one thing that's interesting. Keita's is because it's inaccessible by road. There are no cars the way around is going to be. What are essentially rickshaws. But they're basically big motor tricycles with a two person seat on the back. Yeah i would. I would call them tuk-tuks after my time in southeast asia but that same sort of motorcycle rickshaw various attack essentially so only in akito is your only option for transportation. Talk talk and if you had to summarize this trip in just three words. Three words against us unbelievably life-changing excellent excellent and again our guest has been will conway from the baggage claim podcast. Hey baggage claim common. And and will.

I love that special. Shout out to you all. So let's get to the root here. Why did you guys decide to get into the medical sector rate question on my end so I gotta early on? When I was young? My mom is a nurse and she's been so so. I think the job when I was young on my early orders from a stethoscope or something like that so I always had a high the the Healthcare Sector and fast forward to college. I went to Undergrad at university in Massachusetts. And we'll forget this APP a time my sophomore year. My older sister was it in physical therapy school at time can her clinical dot com physical therapy and I hop in the more at there and I said cyst hopped me about the profession Niro but physical therapy and eh conversation. We've talked about the lower ability of the profession within one month week and day work with different patients different ages with different conditions. And that really spoke to me roles will talk about the whole concept of using your hands and your heart and your words to work with others and to help others and that really spoke to me as well and throw their time. I an even started from when I was younger in my conscious. Mind and my subconscious mind. I was falling in love with the whole concept that are placed fourth throughout my whole life. The ball wrestling wrestling cross and played Lacrosse at Umass. His Wild tar-seal cry and then as I talk of US continue to think about moving before I was even realizing vows loving move in and really think of moment it is start to hit me. That movement is one of the most important commodities allies in oh one of the oldest commodities in lives with us for the very beginning and throughout route and a really dictate how we engage with the world and how the world engages with us. How we Ron? How play how dance? We love how we live and is really drew my belief that when one is able to maximize movement capacity and maximize moving capability able to maximize alive so ugly vessels humanistic so much of my work today. Vocationally as based around the transformative power of movements love. That AFO strong message was a great answer. Sir John What about you would look at you into this in this business. So I grew up some Vosa just being active in loving health and wellness growing up playing soccer since I was four sore In love and movement myself and I knew pretty early on whether it was late dinner higher early high school that I didn't want to sit behind a desk ask for my career in and so my parents challenged me to go ahead and look into what I wanted to do when I just whipped up the US news news report article for top job satisfaction and physical therapist is right there so I just combined my love for being active in helping others and to wanting to be a physical therapist and haven't looked back since I decided early high school. I wanted to do this. Love that what a great story guys and you know without a doubt out sounds like you've landed in the right place and so as you've gotten knee deep into the space with your company. Can you share with the listeners. A hot topic that you think needs to be on every medical leaders agenda and how you guys tackling. That question saw thanks which floor at Dinka. What's big on mine? I think whistle big on many health care eaters and organizations Marina. reframe how we look it out. Patients no longer outpatients these passive chess pieces to be moved wrong. They're just taken unite directional way consumers now and patients now. They're active selective than more wear and I think we need to see them assess treat them such and speak to them as such early provide power empower choice around him to choose what they need when they need certain without Oh consultations other industries a Judas well and had been doing this well and other entities and extensions like technology to enhance to do one of this. Well I think there is catching up. Hoke here does have complex tentacles to it. They're not maybe all other industries have. That's where some of the innovation rely for us. That's right. Simplify the sophistication and simplify our product in pricing on away that patients than we start looking at. Moore's consumers that they can palpitation So that's on online much. I think that's going to be more and more healthcare organizations minds as well. So how would you say appreciate those thoughts definitely the the healthcare consumerism becoming more real. Larger Co pays mean more discerning consumers. What are you guys doing at movement acts to help help provide the stem free and cheated? Care Yeah so definitely one of the first getting into it a little bit at the end there is just the cost of healthcare healthcare in the US. And just how much of a problem that is. Definitely something that we're working on and our addressing this is we're just trying to provide the the best care possible. What we're finding is if you go to like a typical private Physical therapy place. You often will the double booked with two or three patients at once. And you're just not gonNA receive individualized care that you deserve and will likely happen. Is You're going to draw out the visits that you need to get better and that's just going to keep driving up. Costs were trying to do is. We're going to provide as much one on one care with highly trained providers fighters so that we can get the patient faster to reduce costs overall improve outcomes as well so now back on that to pay back in one John said Ed until so Last question that is set up to even talk about movement X. in and what we are always like to say so the context of the concept on September the content so the the concept of what we are really starts with the name you know Movement and movement is fundamental value that I talked about earlier maximizing the movement that allows you to maximize your like you know what we sometimes see in the world. There's a bit of resistance to be healthier to be an active so along with so many other institutions nations organizations and just people talking about this one inmate. WanNa make sure that we're encouraging people to be more active in moving. What company does is not just encouraged but enable the people to be more active now than X.? Four we start playing with the whole concept of XS allows you to explore the world around you allow you to experience or Around you and we talk about. XP The intersection of Your Best Movement and your best life me no so understanding of Fundamental Valley than as an organization accompany the next one is building the architecture. Sure around that a fundamental valley and that does what we're doing they're bringing rehab clinicians and patients together on a centralized platform. That's one of the fronts of innovation ovation for a movement X. decentralize platform allows for communication documentation Heyman and scheduling. So we like to say create base efficiency. Tamie backwardness People on both sides of the treatment table The patient and the provider so the patients able to go outside search for what they need. Roberto Contour took empowered choices. Well what's important from. US is creating an environment for providers to help support the Flexible flexibly per the passionate thing inspiration. That got them into physical therapy in the first place into builder Pintail and what this is ultimately about is quality effected experiences were taking the product of physical therapy movement health or occupational therapy and Rehab Medicine to where the patient is where that a product could be more functional whether they're home home whether it was a fitness. Where's the office and to your question of how resolve and we just officially launched a couple months ago so in about April? So we're pretty exciting times but what we're seeing. Thank you so much. What we're seeing is Mission out in it vision and be manifested leaning into these pinpoints fulfilling talking about fundamental values being manifested when a patient has back pain shoulder pain so now they're able to go to our website within twenty four hours forty eight hours and they could be seen the peachy come to their home you know. So how will all the research shows especially on these musco skeletal issues. When able to address a quicker rather rather than later it inhibits the chance for that? It gives you a better chance of But the chance for that to become a chronic issue so Loredana to collaborate that were working on and other fun of point is at best is at this festival has communication collaboration with other disciplines. That specify That inter connectivity. Is I hope. Terrorists best very cool. Cool thanks for walking us through that guys and so in other words You guys are crowd sourcing. PT and providing with that crowd sourcing some price transparency. which is highly needed? I I love that. Were transparency because early on in this me noted early on rexy a cash pay. Eventually we're going to be integrating where insurance right now. We're one of it minimize the overhead and some of the operations. That insurance else. What we believed that front that we could go and offenses because a lot of healthcare? Now is you do pay a copay. But you get your sessions events like that or your care and then a lot of your bill comes three or four five or six months down the road while AH eighty without much understand with this sort of control and personalization up selecting who treat you as a provider and working with that provider to personalize your treatment plan and the scheduling backs and paying Upfront East session or via bundling payment. You have more awareness of of your cost and we think that's very important and what we do to make that makes for the personal abide super bills to outpatients so that they could submit war recede `super billed to their insurance company or pear take cover. Yeah that's pretty cool and another thing that that comes to mind F- Osa John Is. I went to Walgreens the other day and I had like a little thing going on in my shoulder. I had a tough workout. My my my trainer. Kinda beat me up but it was good. It was good and I'm like man I need. I need like one of those little massages Saigo into walgreens and I go to the section. where the little massaging dodging things in the yoga stuff is and I find it? And there's a little like sticker on it. That says you could use your flexible spending account or flexible savings coming. Oh Wow that's cool so I carried in my wallet and I go to the counter and I give it to her and boom Wa so just the thought for you guys. If there's away that you guys could somehow make your offering EPA say approved. This would be a big big motivator for people. I love that I thought special on a cash Ron right yeah yeah I love that thought so much. We talked about that peripherally. Hearing your antidote in your experience I want to bring that back accent herself. In into your point what you just described as also bringing and putting the product and then choice where people are your walgreens so others walgreens Greens or CVS or whether you're yoga studio being able to get the treatment or the ability to schedule a treatment whether virtually platform or the places where you spend your time time and then again not everything needs to be a sixty minute treatment session. It could be twenty thirty minute where we just do. A quick assessment of the functional presentation of Shoulder also served region and maybe it's the RASIC region as well. CIO findings had not treatment at twenty thirty minutes. And while La and could you a quick payment to your Fsi so that's the whole idea. What without company building the construction for that to be possible? I love it not I love. I love the idea you guys and and I think this platform has the opportunity. You'd be very disruptive to the current cost models and lack of efficiency as you've stated in the way that that things are Are organized today. All right so guys. You're at the beginning of your of your journey. But you're making some big strides give us an example of some A setback that you had up to this point remaining with a previous experience that led you to start this company. Take us to that set-back set-back let us know what you learned absolutely so at my first job as a physical therapist I was literally like two hours a day for my ninety day review. Where they it? Just kinda release me and I wouldn't be supervised but I was seeing patients at one time and you can't focused on one of them and then I saw another one was is doing lunges with too much. Weight ended up tweaking quadricep muscle so that that was not ideal. But so certainly I could've been paying more attention and likely would have been able to prevent the situation however looking back on it. I just like zooming out and taking more of a macro approach. I started thinking about just what was going on with having to be responsible for managing three patients at once and there was just an inherent problem with that so so when I heard about the mission of movement acts this year I just absolutely jumped at the chance of hopping on board this wonderful company just to try to change that experience that I can give patients by being able to be put in a situation where I can just provide one on one specialized care for agents. That's awesome man so the opportunities there for you the opportunities there for all patients and listeners a takeaway that you should get after run on some of the things that have been shared today as just that doesn't matter where you're at and where whether you be at the middle of your career the beginning or close to the end and there's always an opportunity for you to take it to the next level and make outcomes better and if Ozan John are an example of just that so I applaud you guys for your your courage now. What about the other side of the coin? You guys have talked to us about a setback about one of your proudest medical leadership moments. You've experienced to date old jump Mira Chimera so some my works also the nonprofit sector saw like you mentioned upfront one of my moments that I was able to be hard up up early on and now I'm just hanging on inspiration by the professional large. Cheer store at the assault on two thousand fifteen did a trip around. The world are in twenty two countries. In eight months ideas a the hope was to create a montage mosaic of Health Service Physical Therapy Rehab Medicine Different cultures around the world get a sense of similarities clarity's of differences and enjoy the the beauty said lie within those and use that to be a better person and to do good in the world so great. That's a thobe a long conversation for a long time. We'll save that for when we meet and have some coffee together. In whore I was in Peru Perot was doing some work in Kielce Peru which is only Amazon River can only approach by boat or by play and while I was in the Amazon Wallas and Karua this one day in a key toes I was taking a boat. Were the service sites. I was on Amazon River taking a boat to the service side and saw as I was on his boat on my way to the service side. This idea that had been in the back of my mind for some time simply shot to the front of it and the idea. Was this what we challenge students. Ten clinicians of the physical therapy profession around the country and around the world to do an act of service on the same day and while we challenge those people newly ACA service share the moments had the images had connections made on mine on social comedian different websites. What made I looked like a need for the boomed within the profession? And what might that look like a need for the preemptive profession to the world at large so one of my co founders on movement Exa. I called him an email him as soon as I got back to the mainland that day about the idea and he would just so positive about it he said not only. Do we have to do you this. Not You know so. We saw other co-founded for Movement Ski Ray and we started this initiative initiative called PD Day of service and two thousand fifteen and the first year we had twenty eight countries participate in all fifty states in the US the second year we have forty two few countries participate in all fifty states in the. US ranch year. We had fifty five countries participate in all fifty states in the US and now we have a not of twenty plus people that work on now and just a friend within a profession that we know no friend of fashion just together daily it served locally community for a global effects. I'm proud to be part of the community now serving around the world. That's awesome and I love that. You're like yeah. I was on the Amazon Amazon River on Mike just Amazon River Man. Then he gets better from there. You guys have done some really great things to create a movement the around the profession of PT's so Something to be proud of congratulations on that and I'd even like to jump in on it. Experience that relates to that Afon Absolute machine he started another non for profit organization called Moon together along with Josh de Ngelo and they the as built a couple of clinics in a day last year right a Phosa year we build a three building. Rehab Clinic second was popular city in. Guatemala no kidding love it so I was fortunate enough to receive an email from Vosa last winter. Asked me to join him. This year. January to the Noaa in Guatemala ought to serve for a week at the clinic they had build and that was without a doubt the proudest medical experience that I've had we are It literally providing physical therapy in its purest form in which the patient was getting the exact care that they needed will not being rushed in and out of the door and it was just absolutely incredible to give this experience to patients when this was likely their first time just encountering another healthcare provider where we could listen to other problems too so empowering just just to see the difference. We could make an forty. I was able to meet the other. Three founders moving X.. With Josh Dangelo Blanquita. I also being on that trip as well that's awesome. There's no doubt you guys are up to some really cool stuff follows Looking at the PD Day of service folks if you're curious go to P. T. Day of service DOT COM. You'll find them. You could find movement acts at movement dash x dot com and No doubt you guys are doing some really fun stuff that is both meaningful and impactful. And that's what we seek to do here. At the outcomes rocket is share the stories of those those who are doing what you all are up to. So why don't you tell us about. I mean no doubt movement acts as the exciting project but within movement acts. Is there something that you want to share the listeners. About what you guys are doing their project or focus or movement exa yet so we launched three markets were Chicago were MDC and were in Portland. lay down the infrastructure the organizations but bringing providers and patients together where it's most functional salon than we always say there's five fronts of innovation nation that we operate by one piece of platform the second piece of people know those are providers and everything and really people really empowering our providers innovating abating payment so Whether people schedule out processions or looking at different up bundling package and things of that nature before a product you know what's been fascinating for me to really think about since I graduated. PT School in two thousand ten and this is not just for PT. This for homecare is really appreciate the whole spectrum of healthcare or art often we focus on the half way in for a person to be injured or sick or hurt especially with professional physical therapy in really much the medicine. Addison not just wait for somebody to be hurt to come to us or to see to see US actually work with people to help optimize you know their system in their body so soul all comes in I see so again. I look at Functional Presentation Structure Presentation his workplace environment. How he's doing what he does whether it's run? Jump play the whole night and based on what he tells me subjectively is I see objectively and based on what the Bulls them talk about trading a precise personalized plan for him. So we're creating program. We have a program called optimize in which they'll be the case in our world also trading us also smaller mode programs or products. Excuse me in which worked with different regions agents Abbadi and then it becomes about hard no different companies organizations again where we can take that directly to their employees. So that's a that stuff that we're cooking in the oven rate muscle in. We're going to go in vertical markets. I mentioned before we go horizontal geographical super exciting and listeners listeners. I just had a chance to go her. To Movement Dash X and Signed up I created an account. It's pretty seamless. You go in and you could see all of the the PT providers that are available licensed and ready to service you. I think you guys should check this out. Movement Dash Dash Axe. Check it out. It's affordable and hey if you WANNA do your part to make healthcare better try this out and consider it your way of doing what's best for healthcare but it's also going to help you if these guys By the time you listen to this podcast show. They'll get their F- as a platform ready so give it a shot right guys. Do you commit to getting this done. I'm committed we're going to look into it today. Allow well whether or not it's done. It may be done in there but you should check it out. Folks love the layout and I love this going guys. Thank you for sharing it getting close to the end of the podcast here. Let's pretend and you and I are building a medical leadership course on what it takes to be successful in PT. Today is the one a- one of these amazing folks At movement axe. So I've got four questions lightning round style and then we'll follow up by your all time favorite book. You ready guess so so maybe we'll do like one on one you choose. So what's the best way to improve healthcare PT outcomes. I think it's taking the time in listening to your patients. There's a quote by infamous physical therapist Robin McKenzie in. He says. Listen to your patient. It will usually tell you the key to resolving their problem if you'll only listen to them. What's the biggest mistake or pitfall to avoid? I think it's becoming complacent and straying from your mission vision values. How do you stay? Relevant event as an organization despite constant change question at eight Akita. Adsell is a polling Paulos from other market or pulling from other markets are industry industry whether they are parallel or perpendicular. Or there's Amazon Uber Airbnb. Or anything you can think of. I always like to say Gretzky has quote. I wouldn't pass the puck where the person was I. Pass it so where the person was going to and That's a mind cinema tower that drives US love that. It's one of my favorites in. What is one of the areas that should drive everything in a health care organization? I'm GonNa Cheat on this a little bit but when I see see what I'm about to say I see them all interconnected. I think one has to be product centric in product building. The greatest options products for a pretty customers one has to be mission driven. I learned from my time. The nonprofit space is Four prophets need to be more like nonprofits in in terms of them being mission driven. Nong prophets needed eight more like four cross when it comes to operation so being missions entering commission driven being customer centric lighting up your customer absolute every single day building. This amazing experience around them Amazon talks about that a lot and then I was key. I think all in districts employees can you do this better as being provider centric you know Really feeding urban in nourishing up providers and elk listens 'cause when they're nurtured when they're supporting when they're unpowered. That's going to lead to better care. That's going to lead to better results. That's going to lead to better everything so as much as you think about. Customer now patients movement actually think about muck providers as well above that. And what would you say your all time. Favorite book is guys mine is called Winter Fortress. It's by Neil bascom. It's not a book about business or health or wellness. Actually it's actually historical novel about a group of soldiers in Norway taking taking over a nuclear power plant that the Japanese had taken over to prevent a nuclear strike. And it's just there's so many overarching undertones tones of just the grit and determination of the soldiers going weeks without eating having asleep in blizzards outside. And just like when I just think about just I. If I'm complaining about Waking Up at six thirty in the morning to go to a meeting or just try to keep building business growing. I just have no reason to complain when compared to what the great. That's a great example. John and I'm a big fan of thinking about business and also a care process process as seasons every one of us will go through different seasons and those that are able to endure the winter will come out on the other side stronger and ahead had the packs. I love that example. The we're definitely going to have to do a copy solve your. Let's do it. My runs Kawamata. Crystals might be look much. Your House and I said to the crowd. I love that book as Alexandra Mawson it. I just love so much about that book when I'm currently reading now. It's a book called peak by Anders Eriksson who talks and Robert coolest. Go right on there. It talks about a delivery practice. You know the right practice. The right of time over X.. Amount of time to achieve mastery Astra so deliberate practice and Glenn will actually base the lot of a good amount of his work from our. The first book of the whole ten thousand hours is face Mater Anders urge research search of heat by in his love. It great recommendation. The syllabus listeners is here for you just go to outcomes rocket dot health slash movement movement ex. You'll be able to find that there along with the transcript links to the resources their websites and all the other things that we discussed in the books. You're you're gonNA find that. Their outcomes rocket dot health slash movement acts John F. Osa before we conclude. I love if you could just share a closing thought for the listeners. And the best way that they could get in touch with you absolutely just in general I think just chasing dreams and embrace being uncomfortable but the aspirations starting a business go. Oh build it want to learn to play an instrument go play it. I just feel like it is so easy in this day and age to become content. Enoch continue to grow and learn. I think we I tend to underestimate the time we have today but over estimate the time we have in our lives there just to paraphrase a quote from Brown. He says the graveyard is the richest place ace on Earth says. There are so many unfulfilled dreams because someone is too afraid to take the first step in carry out their dream so just go out move and do though that brother and then yeah just in terms of contact you me just email. It's John C. R. A. N. D. A. AT movement that x dot com awesome. F- Osa. Yes I love baby. Croat's number on ABS by the Irish poet David White he has a quote. How do you know that your own path? You can't see where it's going that's how you know. And how do you know that you're doing something radical have disappears. That's so is this balance of always having vision but embracing the unknown and living your unique journey and fulfilling your life. That's what my heart and that's on my so often and I there's three cogs and I'll say is a wake-up he's day no your daily joy in pursuade each and every day second second cog. That's my heart off in the the whole concept of lemon life at attention alley in like like Jon said so. I WanNa build something ability thing. The best person for job explained to the boss here. She rather chilled Y. Oh you are. I'm thirty two years now. What I've seen in my thirty two hours is at opportunities? Don't come around the same form twice at the very least they don't come around twice in the same form so when an opportunity comes around the form speech the yet to grab it by its hair tops up every day.

Here the water normally flows out toward the inland but shortly after low tide waves move in the opposite direction and travel upstream and these waves can epic in scale the biggest waves are up to ten feet or three meters tall. This is is a well known example of bore tides also known as tidal bores or just bores and writing them has become a rite of passage for many surfers in the Pacific northwest while this phenomenon has been seen at numerous locales around the world it requires a very specific specific set of conditions but before we dive into those it might be a good idea to go over some basic title science by and large tides are gravity's handiwork due to the gravitational influence of our moon plus the inertia of our movement through space the ocean is always bulging out a bit on opposite sides of the planet while Earth rotates at passes through these tidal bulges that means your favorite seaside beach will experience high tide when it enters each old and low tide as it travels between them.

It's great to be here. It's certainly great to have you on. And it's been such a joy to travel such a tremendous collaborative journey with you. I remember the very first time we met I don't even know how many years ago this was on a linked in group. Probably five or six, I think. Yeah. Yeah. Life is an certainly changed for you since we first met, you know, at that time, you were traveling back and forth to New York City every week. And I know that when we first connected you've joined the American diabetes board just shortly after we met. So we were invited you. That's how we met. I was I was looking for board members. And you said I'm interested in then we joined the board together we had so much fun on that board together. And now you've gone through some really big changes since way back then when you were traveling back and forth to New York City every week. Can you tell us a little bit about it? Because I love stories are transition. I know you do you know, if I kind of look back, I I had been in the corporate world for about thirty five years or so had been climbing up steadily worked for a couple of high. Tech organizations and did some global expansion around the world and one of my clients asked me to come work for him at a major financial institution in New York. And so I made that jump biggest job I ever had. I was managing billion dollars worth of of portfolio of contracts in the information services world, but as you know, the job was in New York. And so I ended up commuting to New York and I left every Sunday morning on the eight o'clock flight to LaGuardia. I lived in the mid town Hilton. They got to know me by my first name, in fact, sometimes I would go back and remind just left, and then I would fly home on Friday night. And after doing that for a year determined a couple of things first of all the culture at at this particular Bank was pretty punitive pretty toxic. You know, the. The scope of the job was was a great job and building a team. But I was on conference calls literally for twelve to fourteen hours a day and on the rare chance that I was in Denver. I would be on calls at four o'clock in the morning. And finally one day. I was you know, in the stress that goes along with that had an effect on my body. And finally after being literally on conference calls for fourteen hours in still in my pajamas from the four o'clock AM, call my husband came up and said to me, just quit. Just quit. Dow will figure it out. So I did because it you know, it was not what I wanted. It wasn't. It wasn't giving me joy. It wasn't. You know, moving me forward. It was did I wasn't it. It was it was just sucking the life right out of me. And you know, it wasn't. I hadn't seen my son in two months and he lives here in Denver. So I just I did I quit cold Turkey with no backup plan, which I would not recommend. Yeah. But for me, it was I just had to sever that relationship in that lifestyle. And then as you know, there's some soul-searching about what I really love what I wanna do and ended up opening my coaching and consulting company. It's been almost four years. Now, if you can believe that, and it's now the most gratifying and satisfying work I've ever done, which is really helping people develop helping. Businesses grow getting over that hump. And I taking me all my years of experience interestingly enough and being certified and being able to put that back into the world and know that when I work with my clients, I make a difference for them every day. Right. And when you made that decision day to leave your job, you didn't know that's set you were gonna go. No. In fact, I had no excuse me. No idea really what I wanted to do next. I just knew that. I think I wanted to be more in control of my life. I wanted it to be at a pace of which was healthy. I wanted to put balance in my life. You know, I've got this wonderful rock of a husband. I've been married to most thirty eight years, and he said that's will figure out and workout together. So don't worry about anything else. Let's just you know, have you decompress? And then take that next step and that Helen was that decompression period. I would say realistically probably two to three months, but then I did spend about the next six months or so working with my inlaws and helping them through their transition. They were both in pretty ill health, and this was about moving them out of their house and getting them on with their lives. So I helped them with that transition while I was still figuring out what I wanted to do. But it so I would say a total of probably about nine to ten months, and what were some of the big Hawes that you took in that pause. And that break in that space for you to just connect again. Right because when you're going at that kind of pace that you were going out, and suddenly you get into this space of there's open space. I mean, first of all that's a shock to the system in itself. And what was that? What what came from that? Ause? I would say that I figured out that I'm really pretty good at a lot of things. So there was some self awareness himself reflection that if I paused and took a look at everything that I had done in my career. It was very well rounded and in all aspects of the business. So you know, when I finally decided to do something with it in the consulting world, I had real world experience to bring to the table and had a lot of things that I could share that some individuals and businesses would know about so I had a really good foundation that all my corporate experience gave me right, right? And then I think the second was that it's okay to have balance, and it's okay. Not to work sixty hours a week. Right. It's okay to work thirty five or forty. It's okay. To take some time and actually go enjoy nature and do that reconnection with your friends, your family nature. Etc. And take that breather. Because then that's kind of what gets you centered again. And then you can make the choices that you wanna make 'cause you're coming from a place of more balance than I just have to get a job or I just have to get that next promotion or you just have to take on that next project. And so the slowing down helped me do the evaluation that I didn't I've never done before. Right. Right. The big Hoffer me and without slowing down. He would have never had that a ha right? I did kept going and probably drove myself right into hospital or right into something else. Because I was I was literally running too hard in the and the health the the ramifications of that, right? We're showing up in my health. Right. Right. And so today, you're doing just wonderful work. That's really making an impact for your clients. And you're also. Doing some amazing work in Peru. And that's really what I want to put a lot of attention on state because this is incredible work that you're doing developing and providing leadership training for executives in administrative teams at a non at a non for profit hospital in Peru. How did this get started? Like, how did that happen? Right. Exactly. Well, I have been on the on board at several hospitals with Cintra health systems here in Colorado. Some of the folks will be familiar with the names porter hospital Littleton hospital in Castlerock hospital. I live in Castlerock and during each of those tours I had always wanted to participate in their mission trips, and these are trips where doctors and nurses, go to different parts of the world and provide surgeries deliver healthcare in a remote environment and really. To help a sustainable relationship happened with the hospital in one of those regions. And so the the hospital that Castlerock started to partner with has been one in Peru in the in the city of Kito switches in the north east part of Peru. It's the largest city that you cannot get to by by road, you either have to fly in or you have to been on a boat and come up the other side of the Amazon river because it sits on one of the major tributaries of the Amazon river just before the border of Peru and Brazil, and so there's a sister hospital. They're called clinic on a stall. And this was because I was now not working in the corporate environment and could choose when I wanted to take my vacation excetera had some space and time in which I could say I'm gonna go on that mission trip. So the. The first one I went on was in June of sixteen and went with a doctor, some fabulous physicians and a few others and got introduced to this wonderful team of people that that are in this nonprofit hospital in a kiddos, and I did some initial communications training because I'm not a nurse. I'm not a doctor. So I wasn't participating in the surgeries that got a chance to do some communication training. And then go with one of our health teams as they were administering healthcare down on the Amazon river, which is just an extraordinary experience in and of itself and with that trip. I also got to go to Costco, and much p two and so do some of those things. Well, evidently, they liked what I did fantasy. Oh said I want you to come back and give us more. So I went back. They got a taste of you. View and they're. Right. And so I went back in February of seventeen ended a whole nother week of training, and the CEO said, okay, you have now given us a taste of what it's like to have leadership development training, which they don't get the the CEO gets some training when she goes to Laima the CFO does in in different places, but the the leadership of hospital does not so Milka is her name. She asked me to come back. Again, you the CEO asked me to come back again. Okay. I met with her in October when she happened to be here in the US. And she said, I want you to develop a leadership training curriculum that everyone of my managers in the hospital can come to as well as I wanted to pull in the doctors that. Work at our hospital, and they work at another regional hospital and help them understand how they can participate in this leadership training. So I did that and was there for ten days in late January of this year built that curriculum had I was doing two classes twice a day. Plus doing these things for the doctors and at the end of this session. I had people come up to me and say you made such a difference in my life. I now know how to communicate better. I know how to how to build leadership within my team. We were all crying there at the end and probably one of the most. That's a good sign. Right. When you you're connected into people at a deeper level. Exactly. And you know, at the end what they said to me was you carry the heart of our hospital with you why you are now and you are now family. So that's how they view me. I've had some of these people. Now in all three classes, I know that physicians by name, and you know, this is a hospital that is taking care of the poorest of the poor within the city of Akito Kito says a little over two million people, but it's very much an impoverished city. You know, the they're they're right there on the Amazon river, and so they get all kinds of things that you wouldn't normally see in the US. And so they they're taking care of each other. And they're taking care of their their people and at the same time, you know, their physicians and doctors and technicians just like we have here, but they don't they don't get anything else around. You know, how do I be a better leader? How do I be a better manager? How do I develop my people? How do we build a strategic plan? Some of these things we take for granted. Right in our businesses here in the US. And so they like me so much that I'm going back again in August. Nice. And I'll be expanding on the leadership curriculum that I built for them before. Let's time a little bit about your leadership curriculum because it's yeah. It's apparently, you know, it's touching people's hearts. So it's it's it's not straight leadership. It is there. Something deeper you're doing here. So share a little bit about that. Well, one of the things I I'm doing, and I was privileged enough to do was I'm certified in this communication and the company that I'm certified with was gracious enough to provide sixty six zero communication assessments. So everybody in the last class, all the managers all the physicians all got to do an assessment, they got to take it in Spanish, it was given back to them in Spanish. And so we started from that standpoint of do, you know, yourself better? Do you have some self awareness that you can gather? And how do you relate that to the other people that you work with? So we started off with that premise, and then we got into really understanding what the qualities of leadership are and whether or not you exhibit those or if you want to exhibit those how do you do that? And so we did some workshops we broke out in groups. So it was really more of the storytelling that went on within the room, and they share with each other. Right. That was helpful. I'm abandoned lever, and storytelling and helping people learn and grow and discover and go deeper, and that's where you're getting. That's what you're hitting the heart right is with the stories, and when people had this self awareness about well, here's how I communicate. And if I am, you know, a very strong in in a strong person. I, you know, I'm very high red in the disco reinterpretation, I'm dominant kind of person. But some of the people on my team are more. More introspective and quiet and process oriented and oh gosh. That explains why we haven't been able to connect those kinds of things came out 'cause we talked through all kinds of situations. And you know, what do you think would happen? If you had this kind of person talking to this kind of person. So without you know, an embarrassing anybody so to speak. We created the story groups so people could could see themselves in situations. And that was like little lightbulbs went on all over because people would say, oh, no wonder, I can't get along with somebody. I haven't approached it right or I haven't been listening. Right. And so those are Hawes really enabled them lots of the managers to them when we got into conversations about how do you grow people? It took on a whole different dynamic. That's lovely. That's so. They came up with their own development processes, and how are we gonna communicate? And how are we going to train differently than than they have before? And then when it came to well, how do we bridge relationships with a lot of these physicians that aren't specifically tied or hospital. But we want them to be that went along way to creating that kind of bond. So that the hospital could be even more successful. I'll tell you one story that was touched me so much. We we had a physician his name is Dr contrary us, and he is a general surgeon. He's a great partner of ours. When we do general surgery down there. He's always in the OR with us. And he has he's from Peru and has a lovely wife who is from Argentina and they met when he was on doing his residency. Well, they're very distinct and different personalities. She's very by rate by very says, she's very outgoing and her husband is very process. Oriented quiet doesn't exude a lot of emotion. And she went through these classes with us because they they kind of opened things up to some of the spouses to and afterwards, she came up to me and hugged me so strong. I thought you know, she's gonna break a rib. And she said, I want you to know you have changed my life. I now know how to talk to my husband for the first time in twelve years. Wow. And we just started crying, and she and she's talking to me in Spanish, and I'm learning Spanish, but she's talking very fast. So, you know, one of the folks is translating and her husband was standing there and her husband actually started to tear up. And he said he said, you know, I now know how to support her and therefore she'll. Support me. So you've made a difference in our lives, and those are kind you don't expect that you kind of expect a business kind of sensib relationships to be affected in changed and all of that. But this was personal at the same time. He's gonna be so much more effective as a physician because his personal is going to be even better. Right. And that's such a beautiful ripple effect to build a create, and we when we do work that makes a difference in people's leadership and communication styles that ripples through to the home and even going home. I mean, just the fact that people can go home feeling better because they've had a better day. You know, in addition to being able to communicate better at home. It's so powerful for that. In what you're talking about here as religious being able to understand. Where people are their gifts are strengths there. Their wave a like to communicate their preferences. So that that you know, you can be more wear high showing up in any given situation. And I really think having that kind of foundation helped in some of the other topics that we got into which was around succession planning and developing leaders, but then it was also about so how do you take a strategic plan, how do you develop one? And then how do you make that connection happen with each of the p each of the persons the individuals that are a part of that team? And then how to teams connect to each other. So it opened up the conversation for people to understand why strategic plan was important even in its simplest forms the plan on. So how are you going to get from point A point B? And what does that look like for your team having? That that fundamental foundation helped those conversations go even further to the point that we're now going to build on them as we go into the aug week NBN a position to talk about. So now, how do you set the goals and expectations that you wanna people? How do you help them succeed in doing that? And how those connect to strategic plan. And then the last part of the curriculum. Coming up is going to be around engagement. Nice. That's my word for them. It's commitment. It's connections. And it's it's how do we how do we have an environment of of fulfilled people? Nice nice. That's all and one of the things you mentioned in your story. Here was that you've actually been in the operating rooms, I know, and the told me some of these stories it's so just back up for a moment as as you, you know, as you your initial. Introduction into Peru into this hospital. You have been going into the surgeries, and and helping an assisting doctors. Yeah. What? Well, let's I started out being having an opportunity to interview some of the patients and their families because some of these patients have come in from all over the river area, and usually with hernias or gallbladders or something of that nature, and these people have hutch fortitude. Some of them have been living in tremendous pain from hernias for ten and twelve years, right? And it wasn't until they were so doubled over and couldn't work that all of a sudden, they would seek medical attention. And so our our surge are surgeons perform about twenty five to twenty seven surgeries in a week of this kind of nature. And so I got a chance to to meet with with folks. And then would literally now, you know, gown up and go into the pre op area and get a chance to meet the patients before they would go in and then. Meet with them when they came out. Well, I was so intrigued by the whole process that I said to Dr contrary doctrine Lundy who were the two-thirds. But you know, I'd really like to sit in on a surgery, and they said sure, so I got to chance to gallon up. You don't have to scrub in like you have to do here in the US, and Dr Lindy explained to me, I'm gonna take this gall bladder out. And he drew me pictures on how to do that. And I'm watching it up on the monitor and he's talking to me. And he said, okay, I went to kinda step up to the field. They added drapes there. But don't touch it look over here. You can see what I'm doing. And he pulls out this gallbladder out of like, an inch incision and says to me, do you wanna cut it open a while the gallbladder after it's out? And I said sure go over to the table. He they hand me a scalpel, and I opened it up. And here's all these gallstones come come out. It was just it was fascinating to me to be able to to do that in watch the orchestration. Which you know, happens in an operating room. Right. But getting a chance to see it. You know that up close and personal. Yeah. And then getting a chance to meet this was a woman getting a chance to meet with her afterwards when she doesn't have any pain anymore and being able to say, you know, I watched you I watched how the doctors worked on you. So these these people are, you know, they're so they're so strong most of them leave the hospital within hours of having their surgery and go back home. And you know, they don't spend the night like we do here. And so there it's a whole different way of being able to support and take care of these of the poorest of the poor on the river and being able to give them, you know, in a sense their life back, so they can go back to work and go on about taking care and feeding their families. And I and I didn't want to lose sight of the impact of you know, all the work that's happening there because that's that's an. Bet you know, that is an effect. What is so impressive here is that? No, yes, you're helping these doctors in these these team members communicate in an strategically plan on all these sorts of things as they're helping this community that really needed help. And. Yeah. And I would tell you the the community health teams, which is a separate team that goes to different villages on the river and administers healthcare. I got a chance to spend a couple of days with them. And this is extremely hard work. So kind of picture this. You're in kind of a kind of a hut. Kind of situation. It's, you know, a hundred degrees outside it's you know, hundred and fifteen percent humidity. There's no air that's moving and you've got four hundred people waiting to see you that have every kind of affliction you can imagine from piranha bytes to bacterial infections from. Taking the water out of the river. Lice scabbies burns from the children being too close to the fire, you know, and these villagers travel by votes or walk sometimes days in advance because they know the doctors coming right? And so just getting a chance to to watch the commitment that our teams have to doing whatever they can for these people was also extrordinary and the living conditions that they live in are just, you know. It hurts. It hurts. When you you you you see these conditions, but at the same time, these people are happy their kids are happy. You know, they just that's that's a life that they don't know any difference about. But they just know that when our teams come we can help them, and we can help them feel better. And that's just also extraordinarily gratifying to know. You're part of the group that has kind of a mission to make a difference in the world. What are you learning from the Peruvians that you didn't know before? Be happy with whatever you have. They are very family oriented. I would say some of them have have great faith. And and and they talk about it that and they administer that. So those are probably the three things. Nice. Nice. And is there a favorite story of someone that has been helped along the way that comes to mind? Yeah. There's another one the first the first surgery, the first patient that I ever met was a was a seven year old boy who had a very large lump under his right arm about the size of a grapefruit and sometimes lumps. Come and go in the in the Amazon basin. Nobody's quite sure. As to why? And his mother brought him in because they couldn't put his arm down. And that was hampering his ability to play and a few other things. So Dr Lundy performed the Olympic to me and took it out. It took him a little bit longer because some things that gotten tied around some of his muscle structure, and I sat with his mother and through a translator tried to calm her down. And you know, because she had never been to a hospital before. And she wasn't sure what was happening to her son. So we tried to explain all of that. And then when it was finished Dr Lundy brought her into post op area and explain to her, and I was standing there holding your hand. And and through a translator that our son refine they got the lump out he was just going to have some stitches. And here's here's what he did. And and she said to him in Spanish, I will pray for you every day of my life because you had saved my son. So again, there's not a dry eye in the house. We're all just crying because she was so thankful that this team would take care of her son. And so. Oh, of course, like every mother you want to go in and make sure your child's. Okay. So we brought her into post up, and he came out of the anesthesia pretty quickly big smile on his face because he looked over his arm and then lump was gone, and this was a seven o'clock surgery and he loved a twelve thirty. Wow. So, you know, his mom his mom took him home that they had a four hour between writing and they little Motech sees and then getting on a boat and going down to the village was going to be a four hour trek back, and he was smiling and happy pictures of them. I look at those every once in a while. And I think well first of all the miracle modern medicine and second of all, you know, the just the graciousness of the physicians to be able to, you know, make a difference in that little boy's life. Right. Right. And you know, me I love to travel. So this, you know, getting into some other remote villages there. What what stands out for you? Spiders. Yes. You know, you have to be prepared for anything when it's so hot, you know, anything about fixing your hair putting your makeup on you know, scratch all of that. Because I know that so you do have to you have to be able to know that you're going into these villages, and you're very much a stranger. And so it's your pro has to be quiet and soft you have to let them, you know, reach out to you. You know, I've got to learn Spanish 'cause I've been working through a translator for all of these classes and everything else, and it's just your they're out of graciousness and gratitude, so style and grace are kind of everything has as you engage with these people, but they are they're so sweet they're so grateful, and you come home thinking, I don't need another thing. I don't need to buy other thing. I don't need to do anything. Because here's a. A group of people that live basically with without anything, and you know, your your thankful that that you were born in the US that you're a US citizen, and you do have things to come home to like you can turn on the your tap, and you have running water and clean. Right. It's bacteria free. So some of those things you take for granted. And so it's for me it's humbling, and it's it's gratitude that I live with it when I come back. That's wonderful. I love that. So what is next? What's what's on the horizon beyond us? We'll be I'll be going back in probably I'll be going back once a year for a while. Okay. That's going to be the intense with Peru would like to go to a couple of the other locations that disorganization goes to which is in Nepal and also in Rwanda nice, and I'm also working with an organization now called prima water filters international. Several of the folks that I traveled with before this one couple has now bought this company, and this is all about clean water. So they have developed a portable Water Filter that you can take anywhere in the world and help people use whatever water source, they have and help it become more clean. So they just distributed filters for families about four hundred villages in in the valley. Ethiopia? We're going to be doing. We're going to gather some information about the opportunity to do that in the Amazon because the the water in the Amazon river is just full of all kinds of things. So I'm working with them and helping them with strategy. And at some point we'll go on a trip. This'll be the probably the hardest trip. I will ever taken either to Ethiopia could be to India could be way down the river in in the Amazon in Peru and really work with a very remote village to help them understand how to use these filters and and drink clean water. So that I'm really excited about as. Well. Absolutely. Absolutely. So that's Primo water filters international. Right. That's correct. And I think their websites Primo filters international. Okay. Okay. Awesome. Thank you. And so where can people learn more about you and your work Marianne? They can. Go to my website, which is WWW dot peak to peak business strategies dot com. All one word you can follow me on Facebook. 'cause I do lots of things and post lots of pictures there either that or you know, and reach out to me, you know, or reach out through you Cammy, but my Email is M L I T T L E R one six at g mail and just start having a conversation. That's awesome. So the final question that I always close with what three pearls of wisdom, can you leave with our audience today? I've been thinking about this, and it's hard to kind of narrow it down to three. But I would say one of them would be be brave and take that risk. Because you know, lots of people are thinking about oh, gosh, I'd really like to do something else differently. Well, just go do it. Life's too short to not focus on what makes you happy. And brings you joy, you know, and I just just to add onto that. Because I think it's I look at what you've done, you know, when since that time when we first mad leaving leaving the job in New York and start in your own organization and now going and doing the this good work that you're doing in Peru and other countries. Did you ever envision? Ago. This is what you'd be doing? No, right right now, not at all. And and being so happy about it. Right. That's what I would be brave. Take that risk. The second one would be to love openly and to embrace slit may come your way. Nice. And the reason I say that is kind of to your point had I not. Slow down and decided to do something else. And take that risk. I would have never been as open to you know, doing something. Like this in Peru. Even though I traveled all over the world. And I had offices that I built all over the world. I never got a chance to give back. And so that's where the love come comes from. How can you be more open from a love perspective to see what comes your way, and you know, may have that human connection. And then I think my last one would be feet disciplined. So once you decide to go the path that you want to go to you got to do the work. And so be disciplined about how you're going to do the work, particularly if it is about working with people or in my case, you know, I make a difference for people. There's work I have to do in order to make sure that I'm as as as prepared as I need to be in and doing the things that I need to do for your client. So you still have to be disciplined about the approach and where you are in your life now. So it is about doing the work. Absolutely. He can't be can't get there without doing the work. So I agree with that one. Well, Marianne this has been such a pleasure. Keep doing the wonderful work. You're doing in the world. It's so exciting to hear your stories.

That's Lore, Folks: Shape-shifters, with Worst Foot Forward
"Bonus fact there are over half a million active podcasts out there. That is a lot of competition. If you're a small podcast or like me. Small modifying my podcast. In addition to myself to find sponsorship thankfully there is pod corn pod. Corn is an easy to use free to set up website that connects usually small businesses with small podcasters. You keep complete control over your show. You decide who you take sponsorship from end who you don't that way you always honor the ears of the audience who have given us some of their time. I'm not sure. I would have ever been able to get sponsors without pod corn which is disappointing. Considering what i spent on that sponsorship masterclass you can get started today in just a few minutes. Go to pod. Corn dot com. That's like popcorn but podcast pod corn dot com for everything that makes people different across the world. There is something that makes us the same. This is called a cultural universal. Cultural universals include things like gender roles jokes death rituals and mythology. It's in that last cultural universal where we make our home. Today we are talking about a particular type of being that crops up everywhere the shape shifter my name's moxy and this is your brain on facts. The most common example in europe and later america is the werewolf accursed man who turns into a bloodthirsty beast under the full moon. The word where wolf comes from the old english rare for man and wolf for wolf. Dvd players and underworld fans. Please resist the urge to correct this to liken throat. Because they're actually different things. It has a parallel etymology from lucan therapists in the greek for wolf and human but it originally applied not to supernatural. Bc's but to people who thought they were supernatural beasts bc's according to the physician galen when people these days present with animals delusions they may be diagnosed with clinical like hanthropy like throats can transform at will and they have a more specific story than where wolves as an institution do in greek mythology lie cone the king of arcadia who got it in his head. That was not as initiatives people believed and that he was just the right guide approve it in the most popular version of the myth like cohn held a ceremony and feast to honor zeus. Zeus showed up. The main dish on the table was the roasted flesh of cones own son. Nick demus scheme being that would eat nikomas thinking it was pork thus proving. He wasn't all knowing turns out he was rather than kill like own. Outright zeus turned him into a wolf and resurrected the prince who then ascended to the throne but where wolves unlike in throats. There are half a dozen underworld films if you need more of that and even though there are many different werewolf legends in many different cultures. We're going to do our best to stay out of europe and away from wolves today as usual much easier said than done. Let's spin the globe around and see where to stop and stop brazil. The home of the boto and can tato the dolphin-shaped shifter of amazon river folklore during the day. The boto one can tato cavorts in the amazon living. It's best pink dolphin life if you've never seen pictures of pink river dolphin there's a link in the show notes. They're sort of mother. Nature meets lisa frank at night though the boto transforms into a handsome young man who seduces girls gets them pregnant and then pops back to his river. Come morning you will see this pattern of behavior repeatedly today the boto and can tato loves a party. They can't resist inviting themselves. So if you're having a get together in the amazon river basin keep a close eye on your single girlfriends because it's really hard to serve a dolphin with a paternity suit. You should be okay if your party is endorsed. Though boto cantatas may look human but they have a distinct tell they retain their blow holes on the back of their heads and will always wear a hat to hide it asking that handsome stranger to take his hat off inside may be the only way to reveal the bodo and cantata renowned for being charming to the point that partygoers will beg them to stay even as morning encroaches and the bowen can tato needs to get back to the water and they aren't one trick dolphins either they have the power to control storms and can transform humans into an cantatas themselves or afflict them with disease or insanity. Most people who live near the amazon won't go near it between dusk and dawn or won't go in the water alone during the daytime because in cantatas are fond of ducting humans. They fall in love with the children born of their dalliances or just anybody near the river. Who looks like they be good company. Kidnapping is a common theme in folklore in general and among sheep shifter's in particular but sometimes it's the shape shifter that gets kidnapped in the waters around the orkney islands off the northeast coast of scotland. Seals are a regular sight their meat blubber and hides have been important resources for the arcadian for centuries. But you must be careful which one you hunt because you never know who is a seal and who is a selke silky have the power to turn into humans and beautiful ones at that. Who liked to dance under the moon or just bask in the sun. There's no consensus among storytellers as to why how or win silky transform. Maybe it's midsummer's eve. Maybe every ninth night. What is commonly told is that the selke doesn't just change from one shape to another like mystique or oto they take off their skins and the skins are the thing sochi's need them to be able to return to their natural seal form if their skin has lost or more likely stolen. The selke is doomed to remain in the human form until the skin can be recovered with a liability like that silky. Try to steer clear of humans most of the time. A sochi man in human form is a handsome creature with an almost magically seductive sway over mortal women and they're not shy about using it. they'll take off their skins. Tuck them away somewhere. Secret and head inland to seek out quote unsatisfied women. Human women can slip into the selke. Dm's too but she must go to the sea at high tide and shed seven tears into the water and the sulky will come should a young woman of a seaside village. Go missing while out on the water. People will say that. Her selke lover had come to collect her silky. Men don't have the market cornered on interspecies romance though sulky women are said to be irresistible. Probably why there are so many stories that follow the same format. A young man sees a beautiful selke in her human form and either by trickery or theft gets a hold of her seal skin trapped on land unable to return home. The silky has no choice but to marry the man remember this mythology wherein like very stories theory little agency for female characters after some years and some children. Someone accidentally tips off the selke on where her skin is. And she's finally able to free herself in some versions. She takes her children with her in others. She runs back to the sea as fast as she can. That's the version of the story. Used in the movie the secret of roan inish which you must see. If you haven't it is a near perfect movie if you like listening to storytellers you get so invested in the story that the character is telling that when it goes back to the main plot. You're like oh yeah. The movie a similar fate befalls the italian dove girl the croatian she wolf the buffalo maidens and algieria in east asia the shirts and skins stories tend to involve birds like the russian swan maiden and the japanese crane life wherein a man marries a woman who is in fact. A crane disguises. A human to make money for the family. The crane woman plucks. Her own feathers to weave silk brocade which the man sells but she becomes increasingly. Ill from doing it when the man discovers the truth of his wife's illness and therefore her identity she flees. She is a ten gu. A shape shifter ubiquitous japanese folklore. That are seen as protectors of the mountains and forests. They live in. Just as with the selby's there are different versions of the story where a young man finds the swan maidens magical robot feathers and. She stuck marrying him and later. One of their children accidentally reveals what's happened for the young men listening. This is not good relationship advice. Don't steal women's clothing to get their attention magical or otherwise speaking of storytelling. You know.

I've just put a couple new designs up at your brain on facts dot com slash merch which ports you over to our t. public page and some of the designs actually turned out the way i envisioned them in. My head will wonders never cease. Japan is also home. To one of the best known of the eastern shape shifter's the kids sunni which means both magical fox spirit and regular old chicken stealing fox fox spirits who transform themselves into women aren't exclusive to the land of the rising sun they can also be found in china where the myth originated as who leaching and korea as chemo traditionally fox spirits are tricksters who shape shifts into beautiful women to seduce men sometimes to drain their life energy to become immortal sometimes just for the laws a man might find himself falling in love at first sight with a gorgeous stranger abandoned his family to be with her only to discover. She's a key suna the fact that they retain their fox tail when in human form is usually what gives them away and when he returns home. It hasn't been a few days or weeks. But many many years in japan and china the fox spirit is a spirit to begin with but in korea the kohima will begin life as normal foxes who gained power as they grow older. They also gain tales one for every hundred years that they live which is no mean feat considering a red fox lucky to make it to five years old. The maximum number of tails seems to be nine no matter how old the could soon as and of course it is the origin of the pokemon nine tails for a lot more information on kids soon as i cannot recommend highly enough the youtube channel. L- infamy lincoln the show notes. Many sulky and kit suny stories. See the mythical beast have children with a human but the children don't seem to be special in any way. Besides that luckily hawaiian legend ty is up at loose end. A beautiful young woman named colle- would bathe in the sea under the light of the moon. One night she caught the eye of komo. Hawaii the king of all sharks. He was so enamored of her that he transformed himself into a human and searched the valleys of the big island for her. They fell in love got married and lived happily until colle- became pregnant before the baby was to be born. The shark king knew he had to return to the sea. I am sure the timing was just a coincidence. And he ordered kelly to give birth alone and to never allow the baby to eat the flesh of any animal. The baby non a uey was born as beautiful as his mother except for a gaping hole on his back like the mouth of fish. Kelly kept her word not to let. Nana you eat meat. But eventually he grew to the age where he would eat with the men rather than the women and of course the men gave him meet this triggered in nana me a ravenous hunger and the fish mouth on his back grew razor sharp teeth. His first taste of meat also awoke in him the ability to change shape and his mother watched in horror as he turned into a shark and swam around in the stream eating everything in sight.

The villagers discovered the great mouth on non a us back and put two and two together. They went after non a ua but he changed into a shark and swam to the island of maui there.

The died not a ua son of komo who i lee king of the sharks on the mainland their stocks a creature so fearful. That people don't like to speak of it. They like it even less when do it. Because we tend to twist their belief system into cheap movie monsters the navajo call them e known lucci with it. He goes on all fours. We call them skin walkers in the navajo culture. A skin walker is a type of harmful witch who has the ability to turn into possess or disguise themselves as an animal the navajo believe there are places where the powers of both good and evil are present and that those powers can be harnessed for either medicine. Men use these powers to heal while others seek to use the power for harm often using human corpses in their magic becoming a skin. Walker comes a high price. They must kill a close family. Member usually a sibling. Typically male these witches walk amongst the unsuspecting tribe during the day and secretly transform under the cover of night most often. They are seen in the form of coyotes. Wolves cougars bears and foxes but can take the shape of any animal. They then where the skins of the animal they transform into hence the name skin walker sometimes they also wore the animal's skull antlers on top of their head which brought them even more power. They choose what animal they turn into depending on the abilities. They need such as speed stealth or just teeth and claws because of this. The navajo considerate taboo. For its members. To wear the pelt of any predatory animal. You can tell if an animal is a skin walker on all fours by looking into their eyes will still look human. But you do so at your own. Peril locking is with a skin walker can let them take possession of your body. They can bring illness death control over animals and even reanimate the dead. The skin walker kills out of greed anger envy or spite it. Also robs graves for personal wealth and to collect much-needed ingredients for black magic. These witches live on the unexpired lives of their victims and they must continually kill to replenish themselves. Those who have talked of their encounters with these evil beings describe a number of ways to noah skin walker is near they might make noises around houses like tapping on windows or banging on walls. People still report seeing skin walkers in modern times often on the roads trying to make them crash their cars in another example of a cultural universal skin walkers and other witches are blamed for hardship and misfortune this was most apparent with the navajos which purge of seventy eight which rose out of a real tragedy after a series of wars against the us army. The navajo were expelled from their land and forced to march to fort sumner in new mexico in what became known as the long walk of the navajo in eighteen sixty four. They're the people suffered bad. Water failed crops. Illness and death reducing their numbers. Dramatically many of the tribes members were said to have turned to shape shifting and black magic to escape the terrible conditions. And can you blame them. The rest of the tribe were convinced that their gods had deserted them after about four years. The government admitted it made a mistake. A surprising change and the melva who were allowed to return to their homeland back home. The conditions improved but they believed the skin walkers were still among them and the accusations and hunting began. The situation came to a head when someone found a collection of which artifacts wrapped in a copy of the treaty of eighteen. Sixty eight forty navajo. People started of being witches were killed in order to restore harmony and balance to the tribe. Skin walkers don't play the navajo exclusively. The neighboring ute believe they have been cursed with skin walkers by the navajo at one time the youth and navajo fought together against their common enemies. However later when the acquired horses from the spanish they began to abduct the navajo and sell them into slavery. Later i war some ute joined forces with kit carson in the military campaign against the navajo. This is what ended in the long walk after the navajo returned home. Skin walkers began to attack the u in repayment for their betrayal. I know. I said we would stay out of europe as much as possible but a little bit of europe has come to us. Welcome ben and jerry from the worst foot forward to tell us about a shape shifter find particularly interesting. Thanks moxie hallo mighty funds of your brain on facts. I hope by the end of my contribution your own hippocampus have shaped shifted. Subtly into an organ with just a few more facts about my favorite arbor real shape shifter now when i think of shape shifter's i tend to imagine oto from star trek. We wolves or that kid at school. Who could seamlessly hang out with any social group but you never saw in any class or my high school was haunted. So i wanted to go off piste and introduce you to a lesser spotted shape shifter. I headed to slavic mythology independently bizarre and other willie pantheon which i can best described as like norse mythology if it'd been filtered through nick cave's brain amongst the slavic gods is a deity called lashing literally he from the forest. The laci sometimes referred to as a tree spirit and other occasions. A- demon god. Some folklore even suggests that his originals may come from humanity. Itself are you saw. Laci is a protector of the forest. The grassland and all the creatures within it while commonly adopting a muscular humanoid shape because even shape shift is a bound by the patriarchy less she is able to assume any likeness and can change in size and height making him. The only overtly telescopic day eighty. There is no account if when he does so. He bellows gogo leche legs now in some tales. He's as tall as mountain when he's in the forest but links to the size of a blade of grass when he steps outside it in others. He's very tall. When far away reduces to the size of a mushroom when he's nearby proof that chroniclers of slavic mythology are amazed delighted and bewildered by the notion of perspective. His default setting is that of an extremely wizened. Old man covered from head to foot with long tangled. Green hair. he has caused is unless he walked. She causes the wind to blow. His skin is rough as the bulk. Betray on because his blood is blue is gonna tinged with that color and this is quite creepy friends his eyebrows eyelashes and white ear all missing and he wears his shoes on the wrong feet on doesn't cast a shadow he seldom seen. That wouldn't surprise you for that. Seems like a cross between an end and bigfoot. but he's often heard whistling laughing and singing on trees or marshes. Which i think we can. All agree is both delightful and sinister at the same time. Typically summing up the atmosphere of forests. That's mushin for sunday afternoon stroll. but if you end up in them after dark a bear is gonna disembowel you. And where you as an you waistcoat now as protect forests marshes leche is sometimes portrayed with horns or surrounded by packs of wolves and bears on. It'd be surprised to know that many mythological creatures has quite the opaque moral code. He's known by some to have a propensity for leading travelers astray in abducting children but his disposition towards humans is more dependent on the attitudes and behaviors of an individual or indeed the local population to a forest. If you kind to the legacy than less you'll give you gifts. In folktales cattle attended for poor peasants and princes guided on my quest to find the correct princess but less she is prone to abducting babies. You've not being baptized or children. Who end the forest to pick berries or fish. My favorite thing about him though is that he has been known to drop into a way. Si- taivon for a visit drinker bucket of vodka and then lead pack of wolves staggering lock into the forest. Now should you find yourself in a forest in eastern europe and be worried. The displeased alexi. Here's what you need to do. You need to make them laugh. Apparently the best way to do that is to take off all your clothes. Put them on backwards and switch your shoes to the wrong feet. I suppose wolf hamad on. Cheap vodka subverted billion slapstick is about your level on its hall lashing is a shape shifter in not just the size of nature but also it's rhythms less.

We're available on spotify issues jeans and all your podcast places buck to what i hope is moxie and not a shape shifter sidling into her podcast empire to take it over. Thanks for listening guys. Thanks guys around. The horn of africa which is ethiopia somalia sudan. Parents warn their children not to talk to strangers not to wander away from the lights of the house at night and to be wary if they think they hear someone calling their name in the darkness where you have wolves you fear where wolves where you have hyenas. You fear wear hyenas. That is of course. The english term used to lump abroad group of foreign concepts into one box we're hyenas can be either human born or hyenas disguising themselves as human transforming at will with the help of a magic stick or sprinkling of ash or being triggered by the smell of human flesh. We're hyenas hunt alone or in groups but they always have an insatiable appetite and a reputation for luring people out of the safety of their homes elsewhere in africa. The were hyena takes on slightly different properties in somalia it transforms itself by rubbing itself with a magic stick at sundown. The sudanese version is considerably more violent and is known for a long lovers after dark in morocco. All wear hyenas are believed to transform every night at sunset and returned to human form at dawn. All these myths share a common thread a fear of the other and of nature's ability to disrupt life for those who don't respect her power hyenas and humans have had an adversarial relationship that dates back to the earliest human presence in africa for millennia cackles of hyenas for his their collective noun have sacked villages like slightly more harry viking killing livestock and even people so naturally this real threat got voted into the very concept of fear. Hyenas are also considered cowardly repulsive for their incorrectly perceived nature as scavengers one early myth originating from the ivory coast describes how the first hyena attempted to convince all the other animals to kill the first man and woman. Fortunately i dog warned. Our ancestors foiling heinous plot and saving humanity growing out of that. The were hyena mythology centers. The idea that they aren't just a threat. But a lowly vile one at that. In some regions this evolved into a means of isolating already marginalized people in ethiopia. In folklore we're hyenas were referred to as vota a term synonymous with the evil eye and connected via a strange twist on the christian creation story with the lower. Uneducated artisan class and blacksmiths in particular. For a time all blacksmiths in ethiopia. Were believed to be buddhas capable of wielding the power of the evil eye to transform into aware hyenas at will this belief still persists in some areas. Which is unfortunate for the tiny minority of jews. Who have worked as blacksmiths. For centuries also known as beta israel the jews of ethiopia weren't allowed to own land or attend school. This left them professions such as blacksmith thing which require no. Formal education don seaman. A scholar of religion at emory university believes that labeling the jewish population of ethiopia as boda was a form of ideological segregation largely by drawing associations between voter and craft creating a seamless. Mythic association and inhibiting the social mobility. That might have been possible. In previous eras further dehumanizing them legend had it that jewish shape shifter's would rob tombs at night in hyena. Form to eat dead bodies and you could still smell a whiff of corpse about them. When they changed back where hyenas ties to the jews of ethiopia has greatly reduced with time. But not because of any particular enlightenment but largely because most ethiopian jews were either forced to convert to christianity or emigrated to israel in the nineteen eighties. And that's where we run out of ideas at least for today. This is normally where i would wrap up. Whatever i t's the show with at the opening. But instead i have a favor to ask. I am gearing up for episode one fifty that thing that i applied for the guinness world record for for most guests segments on a single podcast episode. Still waiting to hear back on that.

Now i love. I love him. Trying to achieve equality with the annihilation of calgary is not successful. That's exactly right in this era where it turns out were never the boss. What's beneath the surface of people miles of the ideas that the finance on history retold welcome to russell brand and did this. I've become very puritanical. That's what happens during the week. Exactly yeah drug addict like people have gotten myself past you end up becoming very judgmental and i'm interested in that because i've had in my life where of a drain can everything else just because i wanted to get really fit for to maybe a tv. Or whatever i personally sometimes fill a slot Boring version of myself. And i don't like saying no with two mates when they said you want come to the pub by find it very difficult gains with the water or something like that. Do you find you find it difficult for years and years. Now so i'm sure you've got very quick of replaced those things latte a one guy or pop we've might cause i now a to tell the truth like once you get deep into it you tend to have friendships bava people that don't drink and even if i do drink or take drugs wouldn't go into an environment where people were drinking taking drugs a lot not because ono i'll drink take drugs far from it just just find it fucking boring when people there and you're on the level they more more intense i mean i can't take this madness i mean this does not it's not for me anymore 'cause i was i suppose you could say lucky enough or wherever to experience like extremes around substance misuse extremes around hedonism around let's sex sexual behavior and all of that i've arrived at portland art just go to amazon to appoint that's not to say i don't crave it because like any of us when the to nazi legitimate celebration and stuff like that is part of you is a pleasure to get out of your head or two in a pleasure is pretty beautiful but if you have a tendency towards addiction your relationship to pleasure has to change you have to stop thinking about things like contentment happiness and that ain't necessary for everyone. Some people can depending out of drug use or alcohol or any form of hedonism. Bob always had to. I guess my life has shown me. I have to be careful around it and ended up in place with a prior. A is spiritually spirituality. Main i mean maybe an awake and connected in myself and in the way i treat other people as well. I don't unconsciously tree of people badly in order to make myself feel good all. Because i'm not thinking about how they might feel as a result of my actions so like the thing that i've been around drugs and alcohol is the law of those behaviors of kind of dropped away. I'm no impervious to him. It very easy for me to get angry or insecure or wherever and start to think. It'd be a good idea to return some of that stuff so in a way. Advocate pre visualization. Life's lamb pre vigilant. The way i think about stuff now but the payoff for is i have relationships with men where most of my relationships with men are now will fit even even my mates that on from like a drug and alcohol background still you know still drink or drugs have have any active crackheads or alcoholics or anything but like in princeton. Just using drinking a normal healthy adult. Why even relationship with them. I would like i like market amount and other mind might have about some bullshit also but i liked to sort of be dealing with the reality of who we are. We're alive we're gonna die. I'm fava. I've got young children. I want to do the best i can. I married response of financial responsibility. I've got love of responsibilities in well here. I need to be present and awake to that stuff. I can't live a non wakened life anymore. that's over for me ernest. Now europe a bind to I'm i didn't feel the need to separate Adapt the same levels of pasta station that you day but i mean i think i do. I'd like to think a little spiritual life Meditate i know full-time sweet property remotest The electrical the daily practice and. Yeah i think food for me. The biggest catalyst for change actually was the sixty days of did on the desert island. Because i i developed a weird thing which is reflected sense of south an days By if you walk into any joke of laughs because everyone's just laughed. And i think comedians Probably very susceptible to this as well. But i'm at all you won't length of the amazon and everyone tells you super tough and then you know that you'll super tough. So that's an extreme version of it but then went to designed man and there was no camera people. There's no there's no nothing on the alleged to be sick on the beach mitch. couldn't work out why was spinning out too much laterally in took a long time to wear this out. I recognised just had no identify. I didn't. I didn't know who i was and because i was so used to doing things in order to manipulate other papers opinion of may not to nagoya She said on the base from gary. Okay i might Person who are up. do. I want to be reliable. Do i wanna be flaky and not to enter stuff. Do i want to always turn up staff. Do i want to be late. Do i want to be honest. Do i want to cheat on people then literally just so. I didn't have a pen or paper annoyingly because it was a on a desert island naked. But i had to memorize list of things i wanted to be like. No one else is going to make this decision for you. It lately up to us to the human being A quite quite interesting thing to go through and we kind of kind of wish an earlier version. That's pretty profound like when we talked before you said about you said about like me in your friends. I think the australian friends and they said like that your ego shop. I can hear you're thinking the same word that we use for. They use for mind. They use for tangled fishing and they also acknowledged the consciousness of the heart and the consciousness of the belly and the and the like in modern in modern. Biology anatomy is recognized that there are neurological sales in the car and neurological. In the heart. There is a type of thinking in commerce or at least awareness that takes place on that level. I also spoke to carlo. Ravelli the physicist who writes a lot in popular science books. You know seven easy fears about science or wherever you know like make physics accessible. He told me this thing. I've been thinking ever since he says on the most of these terms lane into level. Someone off a podcast can understand. He goes on the most basic level of material reality. There is nothing that is objectively stable and set the reality of the mid. the most. The reality of the quantum world is relational things exist in relationship to other things. That's when they become solid as it were real so in a way. Saying there's no really. Oh everything is potential is there. And it's not there and so when you're saying that you found yourself as in sixty days. The island one like a naked and marooned on that one of the psychological state. There is juice in new. There is your stripped relationship. Who are you. Who are any of us without relationship. Who am i. if. I don't have my dog to talk to don't have the people i work. We've done have my family. Don't have the objects in my life. It makes me realize how far. I'm a construct and i love that. Lead you to a point where you said. Well i'm gonna take responsibility in design design who i am. Just abandon an Rarely do that sounds melodramatic. But it wasn't at all it was would be so low. You know you look at this beautiful set for my little cave. And i just don't cat i absolutely don't cata isn't going to get food Was getting zero enjoyment for the timing could have just spiral dan was. Everyone's go. I think the capability of spiralling And then as part of you just goes postpones you up. Doesn't it You can do this. Let's just take a deep breath and hold your hand free this experience and it's scary is having to go into very debt soon cause of your house psychology and addictive therapy last two years year and a half off to the experience went there and and and And that was one of the most transformative periods of my life. And i think i didn't again wasn't jacket or anything like that and it didn't have the same Addiction she's of the people and stuff. But i did feel having lebanon self awareness in life just makes you makes you more honest. Isn't it because. I think seventy people not just not honest to paper but not really honest to themselves because his bits of themselves that they don't really want to explore whenever they think about it going up a cigarette or they never drink late a gun ever by of chocolate or i've probably more easily now. Yes anything i think. Not having distractions was was what was key to sort of to the catholic to change for me on the island because because it was nowhere to hide for it was quite terrifying but equally but pretty powerful this one here. You confronted with the reality of you are it. Sounds amazing and it's not coincidence that sort of a lot of spur spiritual traditions at the esa teric end have a lot of asceticism and denial don't have sex. Don't drink don't take drugs. Donate loads of food. Spend time alone in solitude so that you start hanging gonna minute. This is fucking amazing stuff out. That's not who. I am not able to distract yourself. Continually bayview confined harmony with who you actually are. Obviously what. I'm striving do still. Then you're not like you can have a loving relationship with your children your wife your friends your work with a dependent relationship on if i haven't got this then i'm fucked So you better not leave me. Will you treat me bad because my sense of self is dependent on you. Treat me good. Yeah no absolutely. And i wasn't capable of of a marriage prior to that experience and an uncertainty had never at who knows about kids but had been of having kids in case i just messed the whole thing up and it wasn't overnight when it was on the on but over the course of that period afterwards you know an actress today this now trish himself not not you know not on somebody for example To be a flaky dad who he doesn't spend this time he's got to spend with his his kids to meet them. Humble nice well-rounded human beings So yeah Ready do actually advocate Time on your. I think is a really powerful gutless than in something that so so ready. Anybody does who spends within an hour on the ryan video from the time he was slade said scientists who taught me right. And if you do the chances are that you're you're doing something else. Aren't you driving. We listen to the radio. And so yeah i think it is when people when people got a number trades like which i have not done. They always around by i. Free people start crying and freaking out Let silent retreats of ten days in that are free days in people start to have probably experienced the stuff that you experienced an extreme. Like something hits you. Yeah i mean. I'm not i don't who say the thing is i had to go quite extreme Because because addiction thing. But i i don't i don't want to give up having a busy other. Wanna give united states and going to the pub that spot of of my of my life and When i'm on the fitness benders avoid going to the pope and miss out on Have to so. I think everyone has their little dilemmas in life is to how how best to live life in light purist periods. And then i don't wanna be. I wanna be a little bit love. You is grit in the oyster.

They're going to bring us the story of one leader who fought for the survival of his people. Sam sharansky and bedrose nedim welcome to latino usa and the both of you. You've got this kind of extraordinary situation. Set up you're part of a reporting team. One of you is based in brazil. The other in the united states and you work on stories about indigenous communities in brazil together. So how does this partnership work between the two of you. So i lived in the amazon for a couple of years and the brazilian amazon and through my experiences there i came into contact with rosa and we started working on stories a couple of years ago And that's that's kind of how. It's all flourished. Rosa quinta man. How do your work vis-a-vis working with sam we're no reporter masan year. Our home also studies journalists in. The nfc columba's joe tobacco sobre tavern is article tactical internationalists. So big is saying is they met and they collaborate and they work across the countries these working on on the ground. Doing the work and sam works as an international contact and bidault is doing the day to day so rosa l. No foul portuguese mice. Instead we're going to have you speak spanish. Is that okay okay. All right so you cover issues around indigenous peoples in northern brazil. Most people know that this is where the amazon is that there are incredibly delicate groups of people centuries old who are living and thriving there. So how do you come upon this particular story. Where does it begin geico. Musa dolo me in bailing capital. Deborah don't let yasin terrain in northern brazil lunacy. Crucial and important is amazon. Muscular mukasey hilltop ross. So you travel from berlin. The capital city of batas state in brazil. And you end up going to a town where two very important rivers meet. One is the amazon river and the other one is the top measures river. Wwl not making us a lot of ryota pajamas. Okay wow so you took a boat and traveled down the river for nine hours acupuncture. You gotta duck duckie finally central the loud there but i do monkey in their territorial hundred. Who's all right. Sam so does bedrose. I call you. And he says hey. I've got this story. I went to this place called brian. Monkey it's where the moon do people are from and you're like ok- yeah. Did you know about the mantra cool. Did you know about the money. I actually do. You know about them onto the coup. Because i've studied indigenous issues in brazil for awhile and i've known about their history But the village itself the whole story behind this community was totally unknown to me so when he got a hold of me and said there's this situation in which a number of leaders and important individuals in the medical community under threat as a result of covid nineteen in addition to a number of other threats. It just seemed like the perfect crux of Semi issues so many threats that a people are facing and yet still being able to show signs of resistance and strength so basically. You're saying that the moon who people are survivors. They've been through a lot and have made it to this point. Yeah the miracle. People have been known all throughout the amazon region as warrior. People even prior to portuguese colonization. They've resisted the portuguese all along. This river called the top of choice river that rosa mention for a couple of hundred years and so they obviously were able to survive the threats of disease of enslavement of violence in obviously of cultural oppression. As well all right so you take off and get to brian monje. And what did you see when you got there. These air komo is lukasz concerns you know gasoline sweatshop but of course i was so laying out of any social traditionalist who told you. Uk right and they make a great effort to preserve their culture and their traditions and especially to preserve the land where the village that you visited is located in going so and when you first got to the village you end up meeting a man who turns out to be a very important part of your entire story there. Michelle wu obviously combat cool. A onomic can be full. Elemental nami property nyangoma. Goop mealtime deal. So that's alisyn. Combat wonder coup In his name is a name he was given to him in the medical language By his father in many ways the store that bedrose i reported on revolves around his father. Allison's father amounts you buy at a single another data. Son them who was a longtime leader of the village of private. Among my zeta beam is at lunch. And now the want to the hispanic g castle some. They hit sowell genetic so his father was active in all manner of civil society assuring education territorial rights and health for the community. Like he was the chief. Is that right amancio. Eight komo do no no familiar. Only the vicar. So you know sort of show. Our mutual conflict telecom neither so he wasn't like a chief but for several decades he was defending the community in legal battles for human rights. He was important part of the community. So did you get a chance to meet amancio on the jvm where to trust number for this way. You actually missed meeting him by the time you made it to. Where he lived he had already died from covid yet. A lot of this. Oh sensor systems get him a little more perform solo poetry who are seen a post reporter cloudy and what you came upon was the scene of just profound loss. His son are listen was deeply upset and also his wife claudette and here. She has been playing young woman. Do co. you she sunny couldn he meant boyana. Emma she panajot she panic so that's clogged it. Among those widow and she's grieving for him in the language just to give you some context. It's considered by linguists to be threatened and has been slowly fading away from villages like monkey as more and more and more records become exclusively portuguese-speaking. There are roughly eight thousand speakers of couve just to give you some sense there. Roughly fourteen thousand wounded people people that identify as being one roku in brazil. And those who do speak do generally are not fluent. They're very few who are fully fluent but to understand what amancio meant for his community. It's important to underline one thing. He was all about the language. The language and culture and he led a movement to revitalize the language and indeed to retain important elements of mundul cultural identity. How did he do this. How how was he able to basically revitalize the language this whole kind of return to the roots of the moon who people were no muddier amongst your phone donate where he built a school like gomo gay enemies more like he. He himself built the school. No no for me so that the kick australia lincoln into cosa colonial to year. They know it. So basically what you're saying is that amancio had this vision for the school. And he didn't build himself but he made the team. He brought the team together to build school because he was very upset. And by the way this happens in many indigenous communities right where the children have to leave their territory to go out a into the rest of the world to get educated and then they start losing their traditions endorser therefore remained almost on the will carry on your traditional own recos. So what you're saying to me. Is that in one thousand nine hundred ninety six amancio. After he has this dream he actually makes it happen. He ends up. Bill dina school and one of the biggest issues with the school is that he wants to teach the moon. Dirocco language are number the economy just game wounded oku significant appear and they name the school. I think sam you may have to help me here econ. Bj to know econ be upper. Be beautiful checkbook and that means sam be checkbook is actually an eagle. Yeah that's right. It's a large eagle or hawk. A in the american context and its giant as things are in the amazon right as they are as they are in the amazon and it just has really regal presence icon animal so to name the school it was basically like they were making no mosh to amancio because of the way that he had basically led. This project is that right. That's right the thought of somebody like someone like amancio. Who just like takes on this. This idea to you know save. His language saved the culture ton of fightback back against the massive modernization in brazil. I mean it's huge because brazil has his rich diverse indigenous population. But you know it's not as if the rest of the country is celebrating the indigenous peoples of brazil right. Sam i mean if we if we think about just the magnitude of it. There are three hundred five recognized ethnic groups in brazil and the last census indicated that there about nine hundred thousand indigenous people. So it's a hugely diverse and also a very much part of the mosaic of brazilian society. And and a lot of ways in addition to that there are a lot of threats and much of that has to do with indigenous lands so thirteen percent of the country is officially listed as digits. Land so thirteen percents a huge amount. That size is bigger than the state of alaska. It's enormous and most of that land is located in the amazon right and this of course means that indigenous land is particularly ripe for invasion the threats indigenous groups are constant and unrelenting including up to cultural genocide. You're on the ground in brazil. You know what this looks like. There's another way of understanding this. Which is that is as. Sam said really a fight for the land. So what does that look. Like when selena king caloric value deaconess or in the act while in foley russell preston hollow sodas. It's the government of brazil. International corporations auto explorer sunday moderate cetera torres on activity league. Alice go coronated. They told you it's the ration- of gold and wood and it just is and people want what the moon because have so. Is there a sense of lack of safety. A lot of illegal activity that goes on and the moon roof territory absolutely is a region that has quite a bit of activity that was referred to as getting paid. These are wildcat. Miners comes from the portuguese. Word got empire which is to climb through difficult terrain and these wildcat miners are in search of gold. Okay which has been huge in musical land. These guys are kind of i. Guess the best way to build an analogy would be to compare them to the forty niners of the american west. Which had they had this mentality of getting rich or die trying in terms of trying to prospect for gold which of course often lead them in direct conflict with indigenous people in california and western. Us similar to that in the sense that there's sort of this lawlessness and lack of accountability as a result interactions with indigenous people. What is the government's role in all of this prison. Bolsonaro said he wouldn't demarcate one more centimeter of indigenous land during his campaign for presidency in two thousand eighteen and he's actually repeated that since he's come to power. The threats to the recognition of indigenous territory are huge. Let's not diminish them or trivialize them. But there's also of course all these other factors four station fires rampant wildfires contamination of rivers waterways and soil. Legal land grabs and a whole series of infrastructure projects to quote unquote. developer modernized. The amazon just a series of structural historical problems that face this community among us trying to keep it alive fighting back as has been the tradition of the moon. Luca people and then cove it happens coming up on latino. Usa you have these this idea this concept of a living library. That seems so beautiful. But it's so fragile so ephemeral and away right because just like the flames that are engulfing much of the amazon Those living libraries have also been engulfed in can be engulfed especially during an extremely scary time. Like passing through right. Now stay with us. Not my roy Hey we're back before the break journalists. Sam schramm ski and barrosa. Nitto had taken us to the village of brian among in the amazon river basin. And they were telling us about the mounting threats to the moon lucas the indigenous community that lives there as one of their leaders. A man called amancio fought for the survival of the moon who language and culture a new threat arrived. We now dive back into my conversation with sam and bitter aside as the coronavirus pandemic arrives in pariah. Demong all right. So when did the coronavirus arrive in brian. demong a quandary yigal koby pueblo the amancio. We're nomad year medicare and keno dame sarah kuchar premiere of kasey maso your order processing fellow. So you're saying that. The people from the village started to hear about the first cases back in march and the response from the public health authorities was pretty much absent. In allison's father was the first to pass away from covid nineteen in the village. Assoumani e. Jere kid passo team for me. I feel get him in cars and we're going taiyo camelina yuccas. The day. my father got sick. He says he called him called. Listen and said you know what. I wanna die in my homeland. I wanted to at home. He'll fully prayed key. Arjun shinkyo spider man. Put bessie down among. Co had to wait before seeking help outside the village and that's why these please are So tragic and worse so tragic because the indigenous health agency in brazil basically had a protocol that stated that person you did tweet nine days before getting a covid test and of course in that period of time among so suffered tremendously my jia now on foot would just against ghetto jeremiah. God's dodge jeon is aided by so mile a to helene that history that i saw your mom mcneese in history and has always says here. His dad waited for the test but fairly quickly actually he got quite sick and suddenly had a respiratory attack and selling a very critical state and yet he still hadn't been able to receive cova test so they made him wait nine days even though he knew it seems like he understood that he had covid. I mean that sounds like a crazy kind of protocol and the way in which he must have felt completely alone so barrosa case. Oh this up by espn. As what is that about rosa except own protocol in nick irreparable solely on buddy ds in officer ula. You're telling me that local health authorities took a couple of extra days to arrive in the village to help. A your yeah. You can't do when you see you're out the yet. The sima when the municipality finally requested an ambulance it was already too late. So that's win. A allison's father got really sick. If live at blue moon room when you sit bowed data but braley sitting back and was taken to the municipal hospital and the city of the title right next door to be intimated the hook up your community mental russell party so arlington. Listen told you that not being able to be with. His dad was really the worst thing that he lived through because in many indigenous cultures being surrounded by family. When you're sick is actually seen as an integral part of the healing process. He saw me have. This is what was really revolting. Just repulsive to listen to this idea that his father was taken us hospital. Not a lot was not a lot was told to them. So there is that what's up audio. That was leaked from the tube of municipal hospital. From a physician there dr juliana use leading in added that the dash stone solve this municipality and she recounted her experience in dealing with the early days i suppose of covid nineteen in particularly the emergency situation as it was when the resources weren't available has from asia giveaways officer i daughter goal. The pan is indigenous. Gentlemen amounts yo comes in and the beds are all taking up in the icu. There's enough oxygen and she has to set up an improvised ventilator. Essentially to resuscitate him to keep them alive on sending decisiona cigna health single mojo. Good dad this into you should send a ventilator issue this ecu oxygen stocker bond subway civil saying using komodo call. Now that they saw the proc- more she felt particularly indignant about the way that indigenous patients including amancio were dealt with how they were treated our god. If i latoya gordon scaring roca hoping they'll camille. Who come yellen done. Do not have done. It is how do then those passenger nostra's since users analogy of a giant big rig of like an eighteen wheeler tractor trailer being the pandemic being the covid situation and the doctors or the folks in the hospital trying to change tires on this moving on this accelerating big rig and that's how she felt and she just felt that there is no backing. There is no support from the outside. It begins to feel like they didn't care because amancio was an indigenous person. It's almost like his life had less value. And so what happened. Next infosys quinto That seeking roebuck. What maintain salin once the staff in a two hospital manage to bring up amancio oxygen levels. He was transferred again to a bigger better equipped hospital in the state capital of berlin. And this is what our listen told sam about his father once he was evacuated down for the second time equal dosage as the poisoning. Privacy and we are two days later listens father amounts. You'll pass away inquisivi the post march by and we'll touch base no say on my z. Without his father's situation what his father experienced was really quite traumatic for them and so many people didn't want to go to the hospital anymore. Had a chilling effect on the community. Because i saw how he suffered. He passed so much time there he was hungry. He was thirsty and health situation. That amancio win. Through reminds a lot of indigenous folks of the crises surrounding health that indigenous people have faced for a very long time indeed so it was not just that amancio died. It was the way in which he died. It was the way that he was treated. And all of this has an impact on the village the moon roof village in doses komo reaction or hint there until they amancio in twelve there maria. They were wounded. Who i must wear either on a ciano weekend. You the important national want to. You're saying that it has been devastating that this is a village elder someone who is involved in most of the major decisions involving the community and this is how our listen put it when he spoke to them about his father's death edifice superior to vote up a to know again contra key kickoffs aghia dying coming now the community dodge amount sue had set up all these projects had been such a figurehead. Such an important leader that when alison returned to the village people just. They couldn't say much to. They embraced him but he says not. Physically they braced him in a in an emotional sense. You know who you know news darva. He's of a project kitchen. Food spectrum women dodge. It was very difficult for a lot of folks just to continue on really just to meet in a community setting to continue the political struggles that they're constantly engaged in to dream of new projects to think of the future. Even though there s a-list sandra no komo limb. Onto on majority there is some year history pueblo. One of the people that bidault spoke with while he was in bryant among was this village leader known as Go you bow before his stance. Same day moses and about how the warriors spirit of the moon lukasz tends to come out intensely in the face of adversity epidemics mae. Such be breteche vivo. Canyonstatecu made to cash thing meta view when allie states that at the time of her interview. They're dirty lost. Quite a few members of the community and one of them was of course amancio in other important figures as well and all of these folks including indigenous leaders. Both in dakota territory. Elsewhere have been referred to as living libraries and won't be but decca viva economoy as badge and key on 'em up beta move to grind. This idea of living library is really important because once it's gone it's really hard to pass on the heritage to really pass on the lessons posterity a month. He was one of these libraries and his storehouse of culture and identity and stories and history. That wasn't necessarily passed on. So let's just go back and think about this story we're telling about amancio and while you didn't get a chance to meet him bedrose say you did meet a lot of people who knew amounts unsure who loved him and who are impacted by his legacy. So what did they say. And what is that. Legacy for the people People quality legal they advance. Your is your merger geico. Salo on michael call saluting swing the monster so while bedrose i was not able to meet a month ago he was able to get close to him through the conversations. He had with our his son. Who told him about a month ios final dream. Do you think scoglio modeling to those lingua. Listen describes how. His father had the stream before he passed away. It's a very vivid dream and he said i don't wanna live in a village that doesn't speak them onto language and he's basically said you know what i went to be a village where they only speak on do for that year in. Thank you pull kushner and national pharmaceutical it. It just takes up. But if i'm yearning and listen says to him well how are you going to communicate with us you know. Obviously i listen like many men who don't speak the language fluently and he said well tough luck. You said it like this. You are going out to make do in to speak my language. I won't this show and in. That was what he had decided. He had already taken this decision before passing away. That's powerful thank you so much off. And sam for bringing us the story of the moon new people and amancio and his family and making it real. What the rest of the world is facing in terms of covid. Nobody that we w guy that bill set. And thank you sam. Thank you so much money.

Everybody welcome to another episode of impact theory. I am here with a face. That i think everybody is going to recognize mr matthew mcconaughey. Thank you for joining me man. Good to be here. Don thanks absolutely did. I am super excited. Yearbook was so much fun to listen to the audio book. So i got to hear you performing and doing impressions invoices. I was really into it. I actually had sat down at one point of just going to do a quick fifty minutes. And then i had Other things that i had planned to do sort of in a different sequence and the book sucked me in and i ended up reading it listening to it in almost one shot. It was really fantastic. Thank you thank you. Thank you absolutely man. I love the. You've gotten into what i would refer to as the mindset space. Just know walking people through what you've learned over a pretty extraordinary life and career. What was the though origin behind wanting to the book. I've been threatening to go away and see if those thirty six years of diaries worthy of putting into book form been threatening myself through fifteen years Never had the courage to do it. Figured oh you know what in martyrdom my wife or a good friend will look at those diaries and journals. And if anything's worth sharing they'll share it and that was sort of a sort of chicken in out that idea so maybe it was coming on fifty. Although i'm not a sort of a numerology where i think that got to do things by a certain time but maybe that had something to do with it. I hired gauche rider. I helped me. We had one meeting and then he got pulled from the job by his boss and that was the best gift i could have been given. That was when i said okay. You need to go away my life back me up said yes. Get outta here. Take that treasure chest full journals and go see what you got like enough. I didn't know what it was. What was going to be. I actually thought was going to be much more academic than maybe being And early on the writing process. I remember i had to pull back and just look what you have in let it reveal itself and what selfless stories. People places prescriptions poems. Prayers and a whole lot of bumper stickers. So they're my seven stacks and then the central thing that came out of those was the title of the book green light now one of the. I don't know if you'd call it a bumper sticker or prescription but one of the things that you know pretty early on in the book and seem to inform a lot of the core thesis of the book is the gore vidal quote. Which is style is knowing who you are what you have to say and not giving a down and i thought that was really fantastic it when i think about somebody having this sort of it factor that makes an actor memorable and allows them to stick with people. I mean starting is sort of a completely unknown kid working in a bar where a producer happened to come through. And i think about how you translate that you go into detail about why that quote impacted you so much. What is it about that quote and the idea of knowing yourself that you found so useful. Well what better subject to study than ourselves. What better subject to interrogate investigate daily. What what's the one character that we are never going to get that that we should never get bored with chasing to figure out but also what's the one is also the one character that we can't get away from ourselves. The one person that we can't get rid of so. I have enjoyed and not enjoyed investigating myself through through my life. I write about this in the book. I don't you know to former persons style or to know who we are what we want. That's hard to do. So i have learned to by process of elimination. Get rid of the things that you go with. That is not me or that is just a fad. That's not gonna ever be classic that go that does not feed me That may be for instance. There's certain pursuits we go. Yeah that be an immediate green light. That's just plugged into a battery but that that lights go out because that battery is going to die. That's not truly solar powered green my so how'd style finding those things where we go. Oh that's a solar-powered green. That's that's who i am and who i am not so we figured out who were not. I found that. I was able to figure out who i was by process of elimination. It's also you know. I'd rather be a good man in a nice guy that that that that happens later. That's part of style. You know. I've always said this. I'd rather have an asshole than door. Why because at least i know the asshole stands the dorks trying to be everything to everybody that he thinks they want them to be. I don't want to be really enjoy being around that person. Because i can't trust him and when i've been one i couldn't trust myself so styles also about you know once you do find your frequency on something is go forward if you're a non tyrant and don't ask permission and that's the not giving a damn part. I've found that the world will actually acquiesce can go. Yep i'll give you a green line that green light on that. If you actually go forward and meaning like you're you're going to do it by oko bike rook and not ask permission. There's several stories in the book about not asking permission whether it's stealing the lumber to build a treehouse which is a lot of fun and then one thing that i really liked was when you first came to hollywood and you were staying with the producer and he basically said man you. You seem like you need a job and if you seem like you need a job you're never gonna get one and there's there's something about breaking into hollywood that seems like the most sort of psychological break in where everything else is. It's more of a skill right. Can you do the the counting better. You can get a job in accounting but there really is an intangible thing to breaking into hollywood where people want to watch you. There's just something where the fact that this guy recognized. After spending a night with you in a bar i think in a cab ride home or something where he says about acting taught me about cultivating that the i don't give a damn part and how that trip riding motorcycles in sweden or wherever it was jared up being exactly what you needed so i moved out to hollywood i just a days confused some of ninety two. I go back and graduate from university of texas austin in ninety three. I do a quick stint. Miss texas chainsaw massacre film. And then i drive out you all in two thousand bucks to sleep on the couch of that guy that i met in the bar two years prior who who cast me my first job two thousand dollars on his cows not pay two thousand dollars going go pretty quickly and i'm starting to after about two weeks and i don i need to. Could you give me a meeting with an asia and need to get job and he snaps at me as you read the book. Cusses me out and tells me look. This town smells needy. You're done you. What you need to do is get the hell out of here and go. Do something with your buds. And forget about hollywood. And what you think you need. Anyway i did. I took off with a two buddies. With what little money we had and we motorcycle through europe for six weeks. By the time. I got back. I forgot all about needing agent or oh i need to get a part. I just had great life experience for six weeks and so he then brings it up about a week after goes. You're ready for what and he goes tomorrow morning. We got the meeting with the agent. I'm like oh great. He was right on the money. Because i was able to go into that meeting and be myself involved in that meeting and not be so impressed that i got that meeting. I talk about that in the book. Less impressed more involved It's trick but it works in our life. I mean sometimes if something is number one in our list in gotta have. It only needed a but at times. We don't get it whether that girl or whether it's that friend whatever it is man if you make them the number one thing and you'll have they gotta like well. What else did you go before came to me. You know what i mean. I want somebody who had had their shit together before they came. Came to me a little bit. If i'm your everything then. I'm probably a lot of times. People will go or situations will say no. We don't want you because you need us to bad something about taking that trip to germany got that need out of my mind and the idea of getting a job or agent in hollywood became subliminally number two on my list of priorities just by sheer that kind forgotten about. It wasn't thinking about an autopsy. Well that allow me to relax be involved in a meeting with an agent where they accepted me to then go out on auditions and actually get them. Because i was like. I really want this. But i don't need very there's a big difference in hollywood is is an fame. There's a game in hollywood. It isn't a fair it's not necessarily marriage and there's a game to play and it's better to be better to one it not need it. The idea of confidence. You've got the southern charm. There's no question. And i'm sure you have a certain level of awareness about that. You know one thing that i find so interesting about actors is they're so good at conveying emotion. They understand how they're coming across on that level of self awareness is obviously part of their power when you think about developing self awareness and translating that into confidence is that tied. Do how much preparation you do. You know how do you begin to in your early twenties. Have the kind of confidence where you can walk in with swagger not need it and and you know captivate breida. I mean. i've always been very intentional. I i will say this part of it is don't worry. Don't give a damn about the aware and don't get objective. Don't hop out of yourself and say how being received early the best work i've done and i am very aware of that but then the best work i've done in my career win my heads down the process and it is completely subjective experience. And i don't give them what you think about or what anyone else thinks about it and i sure as hell don't give a damn about the result because i'm in it and i'm so in it that the last day of shooting they yell rap and i go okay. I'll see you tomorrow morning. Tomorrow's work and they go no. It's over like we've finished film shooting wrap. There is no tomorrow then. I'm like become objective for the first time so in many ways and i think especially today not just an enacting a career but all of our careers athletes Everything is with so much room to be objective. What are we on our phone. There's a jumbotron immediate response when we put something out. We may be becoming to objected or measuring tool where giving too much credence to awareness of ohio. Am i perceived. You know kids these days. It's what they put out how it's received if it's got an a thumbs up. They have a good day. It's gotten a thumbs down. They have a bad day so their entire are being in our attitude. And how feel about ourselves. As more reliant. We're letting it be more rely on what other people think about us today than ever before. Isais lean into the subjective. I don't give a damn about what anyone else thinks. I'm done but but i'm gonna chase down and do what the true to me. And then it's time to pop out sometimes and regional reviews or have a look at the jamba. Johner watch that. Watch that performance on playback. It's but but but if you're thinking about the result or thinking of in the third person too early i don't believe you do near as good or true job in the first person subjectively that you could your Your approach i find very intriguing in the book. You talk about these walkabouts that you go on and i. I love that there seems to be a process to what you do versus. If everything just came easily to you it would be far less interesting and far less instructive but in the book. It's i'm trying to explain this to my wife and sister. And i was saying you gotta read this book like. It's actually really fascinating to hear how he has ends up. Having a wet dream that sends him to south america to float naked in the amazon river and in that moment know has these realizations crystallizes in this journal and then he comes back and actually lives them. And that when i think about people trying to come up with their identity trying to create the space to figure out who they are who they're not to your point but they're they're trying to figure that out they don't know how to create that space the the walkabouts driving around in your twenties. You could have just hosted up in hollywood and gotten laid day after day after day so the fact that you were driving around the us floating in the amazon like what's the intention behind that. Yeah well look. After that year. I had in australia where i was. Tell people that story little quickly. The do was absolutely fucking larry's man. I'm glad you found it funny. I think it's hilarious comedy. So so i graduate high school longview texas now. My family which is a high disciplined family. Once you turn eighteen poop freedom no curfew. If you hadn't learned to get not gonna learn. Well i've just graduated high school. I got forty five bucks in my pocket from job. I got i got four handicap holes one eleven days apart last month i got the best of the best and across town. I made straight a.'s. So mom and dad or super happy. I got a car. That's paid for. And i got no curfew and right out of that i decide. I'm going to go away to australia to be an exchange student. It was australia sweden. And i remember writing down my eight year old mine. Sunny beaches elle macphearson english speaking australia. So i head off to australia. And i'm told by this family that i'm live with. We live here beautiful place. We live on the outskirts of sydney. You're gonna love it. Well very quickly done. Meet this family and three hour drive out of sydney which is a bit of an exaggeration but the outskirts are we arrive at this little small home in the middle of the country outside of the town that was population three. Oh five definitely not what. I thought at the outskirts of sydney. Elle macphearson was probably going to be nowhere close unless she was running across the the the the the the ranch land out there and there were no beaches incite They did speak english. Oh one out of three anyway. That year there Was a try. And one for me where i had to find. My identity was forced to go introspective. I had across some very odd dealings and that was valuable but the year is remember where i was coming from all the green lights. I was catching rolling. We'll all of a sudden that was screeching red light halt. I had no car. I had no money ad girlfriend. Nobody's i had no golf clubs. I did have a curfew. And i just had nobody. I could question. So i started. Writing and writing. Letters and lot of people would return those letters because those ledge understand they were getting very heavy and they were long and laborious letters to whoever was reading them in line so i began writing letters to myself. And then i'd write a letter back to myself. Well i'll give you all the details. But i decided to create resistance in my life things that i can overcome daily basically. I didn't know it then. But i was just just to keep my insanity sometimes when we're lost and we're like i don't know what the hell's going on life for me. I began running six miles a day. I decided to come celebrate For the entire year. Become a vegetarian. I'm convinced my calling is to go to south africa after doesn't help free nelson mandela. When i'd run that six miles a day. When i would stay celebrate when i would eat my head of iceberg lettuce with ketchup on it. Because i was a vegetarian. These were little things that i could achieve in the day to give me some force. Okay i did that gave me some sort of sanity but not toes hardly about control like. That's that's a lot of sort of self denial. It's interesting that you chose high disciplined things. Yes we'll you know. Trust i mean. There was a run in there where on friday nights with one bar in town. I would go out and drink a lot. More than i probably should have just to escape it. You know what i mean but during the week i needed these little things go okay. I could check that off my list because the rest of my life is anarchy right now and i don't know to trust what to believe what matters this is weird. I think what's going on. I needed a few things. That okay ran six miles check okay. You didn't eat meat again. You eight less check. You were celebrate again. Check at eight of these little these restrictions to give me some form or give you some sense of structure could just feel my feet on the ground and go. I'm holding my head above water going through this time but at least rope to hold onto and it's these disciplines putting myself anyway. The year was wild and carney A year though. That in hindsight i would not be sitting here talking to you the life i have if i did not have that year because i learned to stick with myself i learned i. I was never gonna pull the parachutes. I'm going back home. Why wilde given a handshake deal and just deal matt that much to you but a handshake deal that much. Admit that my father and the fact that in my gut in when you know at even at even at five thirty when i would leave the dinner table to go back for my nightly ritual. And i'd go back right do these things even then in my gut. Always had a hunch. Wait a minute you finish this out. You finish it up. There's light on the top. Those something you're supposed to learn mcconnell hang would tell myself there's some there's a golden lesson here you don't know what it is but if you stick to it the lesson will be more worthy along you pay your penance saw as a penance. I didn't know what the answer is going to be. The answer was was was incredible. Like i said. I wouldn't be here now without that time. I've been it helped me deal with other crisis after that which. I just didn't even give those crisis. Its credit because they were nothing compared to what. I just gone through So i had skin away and it helped me. That's when i really began writing in earnest. That's what i really came to know myself. Because i had to rely only on myself for the decisions what reality was wasn't and so i came at. That's where i got a great identity. And so if i wouldn't have had that year for instance maybe i would've gone to hollywood and not been able to take those walkabouts when i needed to find my balance. Maybe i would have not known. Hey you need to go off and be with yourself. You need to go through to uncouple times with yourself to come out the other side which always happened for me when i did take those walkabouts. I did come out. The other side shaken hands with myself and going. Hey it's you and you. You're the only person. I can't get rid of so let's big. I had to get along here so those trips away on my own after the australian always about let's go figure out matthew what we're gonna forgive and what we're going to say enough enough about and that diverse in days those trips on my own of always been hell they were. They were not not. I did not join the company. The company was made until i got on the other side and After that usually around tin figure out what. I'm going to forgive what i'm not gonna put up with anymore and then we move on. And all of a sudden i'm jillian accompany and i'm having a good dominant present again recalibrate. There's a a subtle thing. That's happening there that i hope people take away. Which is you knew that. There is something to be extracted from living life. So whether you would agree with the statement that there's power in loneliness. Certainly you were creating situations from which you had the frame of reference. I can extract value from this. How did you get that frame of reference. Like that's so useful. But i don't think most people have that i don't know exactly where where i mean. I would say again to call back that. Australian your where i did not have a choice where i was forced into that situation and solve the green light assets from being alone and quite lonely I do think that there's great value in being alone. And if we are alone and we get bored and we don't like the company ding. May that light go off to say that does not mean we need to pick up our phone to get some attention or go to the bottle to to to to ease the anger or go online to get some feedback. Entertainers a great time. Say no sit here in that discomfort long enough to go okay until you come out the other side of the go on. I'm good with me again. Now it's part of that. I write about what about traveling in general. Ideally you don't go to a place. You i always say that. Don't want to leave a place traveled to until i get to the point of going I could live here. This could be my existence. And soon as i get to that point. Then i'm like okay. You go now i can go. That's the same thing in the personal journeys stick with it to get through the comfortable uncomfortable times until you go. You know what. I can spend time with myself. I could do this do this forever will. Then it's okay to go reengage. Pick up your phone. Go see your friends go have a drink. What have you go. Look for those things that are other relationships in life but hopefully not until. There's great value in not doing that until you go. I'm good with me and me for right now. That's really interesting. Given the context of some of the stories that you tell so. You've got the floating down the amazon river so swimming that that falls in that same camp of i'm gonna be here in what is obviously very different than city. Life that you've been used to. I know you travel to rural africa. It sounded like at one point on have a pretty interesting time there including a wrestling match which is a phenomenal story So when you're there what you're trying to process through is the whatever beef you're having with your self at that moment or is it something about a daily life that involves activity sweating finding away without sort of modern conveniences. What what is the break. The breakthrough is made. I didn't i don't go there going. Oh i'm gonna are gonna work something out it's more about. I'm to put myself in a place where i'm going to be forced to work something out and that goes back to that place you're talking about. It's very hard to find. Sometimes we don't know what it is we're trying to figure out but can we put ourselves a place. That may be very uncomfortable. Where you're gonna go well. I'm going to be forced to. So i go to a place where no one knows. My name does not have any idea that i'm an actor has never seen my face as idea i'm famous does not speak the same language which is another thing to force you on yourself because you get in the socratic dialogue. Could you don't understand we're talking about. And you're then forced to have a scribe that lock your forced to put a pen to paper for your entertainment. And you're forced to quiet times where you're sitting there wishing you go to sleep because it feels like it's ten pm but it's actually only five pm only Times moving so slow this day area. It's uncomfortable. oh okay ten. Twelve days after that. I'm not enjoying the trip. But i know i have a destination. I have a place that i'm going. That's twenty two days away. My flight back is not for another twenty two days. So i'm not going anywhere twenty two days and have arrived and say we're on day tim and i'm going through hell and not enjoy myself on the move i do. I do recommend doing these things when you can break a sweat during them. They'll go lock yourself in a room. Unless you want a pad the walls and put on the helmet chinstrap and mouthguard. I mean take a trip mother. Nature has a big help. It has been for me to go off and then have a journey. Oh i got gotta each day i have. It's a fourteen mile hike to this place. I need to get their Fatigue can very good for us in that way in letting relax in our mind and get some things out and then after the twelve days of not enjoy my company. That's when i usually have some sort of purge wake up and the rest of the trip is just glorious. And that's when the lessons start to come for me anyway. It's that next ten days after. I've gone through the not enjoying my own company. That's when i started. That's when my pinson paper. Writing beautiful stuff truisms things that landed things that i'm learning because i'm being very president but the first tenor just the stuff i'm right and then is you know the the who what where when who what where when hound wise you know to all the questions the the the the mental almost paralysis well after that becomes Now i'm seeing beauty now. I'm seeing poetry in life now. I'm seeing how my actions reverb with with life and it comes back to me in the same way that i gave it out then life becomes a dance and a song And that's when the chips are beautiful but only because it went through the stick with the early penance of it and we didn't have to do that ten days. I wish you could be like okay. I'm here now. it just didn't work. That just never seems to work that way and when you talk about penance basically there's for whatever reason for you for all of us there's something that's hard that we have to get through but if we're willing to do that with sweating whether it's doing the hard emotional work that there are some reward on the other side of that absolutely is great value in that we can deny it. I've denied all the time. Certain things. But i'm sure many of you. I know myself when. I keep denying it comes out eventually and using a very awkward way sometimes in a public space where it's like. Oh man that bubbled over then. I just And i regret it and like you should have gone off and dealt with that on your own before you went out and said i can try to keep it at bay knowing because it gonna come out. It will come out. It will come at awkward the interrelationship you'll take it out on your significant other of friend you'll take it out on the stranger. It'll it'll come out somewhere awkward way in the end you would read it. I have do you think that identity is something. That were You're doing this internal work to uncover who you are or is there a sense of creation uncover or create a great question. Great concept how much uncovering. How much do you create I mean i would say my first gut feelings at those two are part and parcel. What's your uncovering. Because we all have everything in us we did we. All every human has every everything that every other human has in us. Now we have two different. We have different innate abilities to different extents. Some of you know are born with a higher level of an innate ability. then it's almost everyone else has some version of the of the abilities that everyone else has. So i think we are uncovering but let it exposes itself but the creating it is what gives the uncovering what we uncover some form. Because there's there's there's things that i've uncovered that i may go. Oh wow i didn't know you had a talent for that matthew. But i don't pursue it going. No that's i only need four avenues. The four things. I wanna follow through on in my life. That really doesn't fit in one but put that on the side of the little hobby. You know maybe you'll go to just remember. Remember that actually. You know what you're pretty good at conducting an orchestra. But i'm not going to be an orchestra conductor right now. For instance you know what. I mean So it's create. It's uncovering. But then i think the creation is. Where do you channel. It and i know i'm very intentional. I wanna channel if we can if we can channel our innate a bit what. We do have a great innate ability with what we're willing to cultivate work at hustle. I read about learn about keep our eyes open everyday through the world. That's when we can make maybe have a career set of job. That's when maybe we can do something that makes us look forward to. Monday's not everybody. I don't believe everybody can do what they love to do. If everyone just did what they love to do we'd have an extremely high unemployment rate race. You know what i mean. So i have learned to love some things that i didn't like doing I have. I still do things that i don't love to do. But i know t me up for more time to do what. I love later so ideal. I think if you can find your own innate ability and then educate and work your butt off to to to learn more about that and if you can form that into something that is a demand if you can make that something you can supply something to the world that is in demand that maybe the world didn't even know they're demanding should then that's the huntsville.

Guys that's net sweet dot com slash theory g- after take care and be legendary one of the things that i find really inspiring about you and how you move through the world is is that degree of attention looking for those honey spots finding like when you were burning out on being the romcom guy you went cold turkey on that for twenty months or whatever before the next bout of job offers came in and and now have really. Reinvented yourself and obviously stepped into kademi award winning performances. And that is really extraordinary when you think about creating that in being true to yourself and taking that risk to step into the unknown. How do you conceptualize that. So many people get trapped by fame. They get trapped by the success and they're never able to reinvent themselves. There's there's something heart achingly sad about the person who's prime pass them and they didn't reinvent themselves. How were you able to do that. have a whole second set of the highest level of success. Ever and gives me the feeling that you know whether it's chasing being the ministry of culture or whatever whenever you decide that you wanted to move on beyond acting that you would just have a whole 'nother thing how. How did you not get trapped by fame wrote. It was hard because you know. I didn't have the job have is so so happy to be doing what i get to do. But again being less impressive more involved. I had to go wait a minute. This is still very impressive and you can still be respectful of the situation. You're in matthew. And you're a fluent in your you know doing rom coms and you liked doing rom coms and i do. And i did. And i was shirtless on the beach. Yes and those rom coms are paying rent for those houses that i'm running shirtless on the beach for. Yes sir. that is i thank you guilty. Fact at the same time i was like don't feel like i'm growing in my work and my life had at that time have become extremely vital meaning. I just had a newborn son with camilla. Wow the only thing. I have to be now. I was in ears this job that i have held most rev form like fatherhood now i was I was the my emotions the ceiling in the basement of my emotions. The range is so wide. I was laughing louder crying harder. Getting angrier show on more joy having more sadness all across the board all emotions were extremely then they were could be in the work because it's a very compressed emotional ceiling and basement that sort of inherent to rom coms. They have they have to stay within a certain frequency and bounce along the clouds if you hang your hat on humanity or get love his heart or his angry as you might realize in romcom you can sink that ship in the movies. Ovum in romcom. The couple doesn't make back. If you get too mad are too happy. You know what i mean. So i said your life's more vital than you work okay. Well it's got to be one way or the other congratulations bath. You could but can my work challenge the vitality. I'm feeling in my life. So the work. I wanted to do certain scripts i wanted wanted to dallas buyers club at that time others gibbs no contest with a ten foot pole. Most movies all dramatic roles. I wanted they're like god. I won't financial okay. So i can't do what i wanna do. Something to stop doing what have been doing so i stopped doing wrong. 'cause i said no stopped over the first six months of not doing rom coms was doing anything. Only thing that came in was wrong. I said no no. No no no by nothing came in and for fourteen months. Nothing came in. I considered other careers enough. It ever work again. But after twenty months of being gone on branding as a now call it being out of sight not being in your theater or your living room in romcom. Not seeing me shirtless on the beach. I became a new good idea for some of those dramatic roles. Because where's he bid. I don't know i haven't seen him. Where's he been. So i was kind of refound in looked at different. You know it'd be an interesting idea. Would have been an interesting idea for lincoln lawyer years ago but is now gone so it was a recalibration but it was a long and branding phase. I i had to do that for myself. I love doing the rom coms. But i was getting scripts and i felt like i do the same script tomorrow morning and i was like. That's fine but i want something that's gonna make me sweat and my boots. I want some work. That's going to challenge me. Make me go. I'm scared this role for the right reasons. And i can't wait to go attack it and see what i come see. Come up the other side. That's what i was looking for. And i wasn't getting that in the rom coms so i stopped doing those in twenty months later. The roles that i wanted to do that did make me. Do those things came to me. Now why do you pursue things that scare you. Why seek the role of hard because it costs them because it cost comes at a price. It's it's a bit of that line. Pick a fight gets out really fighting this. You can lose it. It's not really you know. Don't it's not really risk unless you lose the fight. I feel more live in them. I have experience in the making of them. I'm nervous every day. I come to work. I feel like when i nail a day and i knocked and i know i did feel yes. I have a measure at the end of the day. Like you set out to do something you prepared for. You had attention and you did it. And maybe even became found some magic in the day that i sleep good knowing that i accomplished that day in building the architecture of a character's arc through story and then if i could put the whole thing together and it comes out the whole one performance turns out to be a beautiful song and original song that character. Then i'm like yes. And i know that i was highly responsible for that. I was not solely responsible but the most responsible for that and that gives me pleasure. That gives me gratification. That makes me feel because me significance. That gives me competence. If i don't pull it off. And i do have a day where i'm like. No you didn't never and it was my fault. I still i would rather with these kind of roles. I can look in the mirror and go so guess is responsible not pull it off you guy in the same way when i go guess. Who's responsible pulling up. I like no one who you and and and it was also again work that challenged the vitality of my life drop dramatic roles allow the actor to have is high. Ceiling is low of a basement from love to hate from happiness to pain as that particular actor wants to bring to it. That's what's inherently beautiful dramas. Okay you're the part. You're playing the role. How does how how are you going to emulate that person through yourself. That is a vital thing that that makes me sweat. That makes me sleep better into the day. That gives me a sense of accomplishment. I'm like yes did what i intended to do. I prepare for was ready. Oh the day didn't go out. I thought it was going to go. But i i called audibles. Along the way enrolled still told the truth on my man. The character that gratification feels good. I love the concept of having to earn your saturday which you talk about in the book. My favorite story from the book around this theme is when you go to africa and you get into the wrestling match. And they're cheering. your name. Doda wasn't outta walk us through that story because the punchline to that story is is a life lesson. I think for all of us. There's a few punch lines. I hope i hit the right one. I just. it's so happily feedback your punchline to you. If if it doesn't come so i go. This was following literally following to the third time. I had this very specific dream. That was third time. I had it in over eight years. The first second time. I had it. I went to peru. In this dream. I was floating down the amazon river on my back wrapped up in anaconda pythons piranhas freshwater sharks etc and the left bank of the river all the way down past the arise in his line with african tribesmen with spears and shields is an eleven second dream. Eleven frames frame brain brain eleven and at the end of it. What those pictures look like. They would be a nightmare. It was a wet dream three different times so the second time. I said whoa okay. There's somebody caught a calling here. I got to follow this chase down the which proof now we get to have it again in ninety nine and i'm a oh jeez i guess this is telling me to go chase down the second half my name now. What's the only other thing. I know in the dream geographically african tribesmen so. I've got to go to africa. Well i decided to go. I didn't go to africa. So i one of my favorite musicians ali farka toure and i've been listening to him. Oh where is he from neiafu. Okay i get a ticket to. Bamako hitchhike nine hours to mopti. Get dropped off. Meet one guy who speaks english Finds a guy to haggle over dinner in the next day. We're on a boat headed up the niger river to late we find him four days later after i find him four days into my trip a mike. Well now we go. Is this that all of my dream was that was i supposed to say well. My guide isa very wiseman. Says i believe there's a place that you will You will remember doubt. It's called the bundy of garner. We go to the dog on country. We go up into boots and we. We hike many days to their familiar to each and each village. You come to we to the The the boundary and chief gum cheaper like what you see in your eyes. He raises and you give him soft handshake. If you know like what drives we keep walking to next village totally chief. That like what he's seeing your is well. We go on the it's beautiful or hiking data these different tribes sleeping on the roof. Each night's beautiful. One day i get to this place. Bid yamato two beautiful village and the top of the mountains there and it split. There's there's there's a muslim third There's an animist third. And there's a christian third and they all live together. Well i've been hiking days a fourteen mile hike and i'm laying there like i did when i would arrive from these hikes. I'm stretching on the ground and working at the days kinks and you know when i would arrive in village. I was sort of the village entertainment because skin was lied out a beard. Who's the traveler so the village to gather round kids in malaysia. There's about thirty. People gathered around and two of these young strapping young african boys or about nineteen start asking. Do put gluten enacted tell china. Look at each said. They challenge me. Yes they they they they. They want to wrestle. Strong white men named outta which is the name of david which became data and he goes day say they are champion wrestlers of the village and a challenge to wrestling match. Here we go out and all of a sudden that. That conversation gathered about fifty villages round all of a sudden while i'm stretching. Look it up at the sky thinking about this challenge village screaming all high pitch screaming. I look up the two boys who challenged me run opposite way. Sprinting villagers laughing and going on will. Why are they laughing because guess who steps up with the two boys me michelle the real champion of the village wrestler so the two boys were talking noise saying they were champions when actually this guy is the real champion tree trunk. Legs burlap bag tied around his waist. No-shirt he stands over me points down at me points to his chest and points over there as a does this. I know that this is a direct challenge. The crowd's going crazy as my heart starts beating. And i'm going like no f. Been way in this year and this year's gone are you kidding me. You will regret not finding out what happened. So i get up stand in front of his chest point to my chest look over there and head that way. Now what. Where am i heading. There's a big dirt pit. The crowd goes crazy now. I've come strong white. Men data and michelle are going to have a match. We're in the middle of the ring. I don't know what the rules are. I don't know if there's hitting. I don't know if there's biting i don't know it does seem to be no weapon. So that's good and but he reached down. He grabbed my waist turned and looked at me to like miriam. I grabbed him by the waist. He puts his other arm down so he told me about the waste with two hands. And i'm old and him by the way were face to face. then he lowers forehead. Digs into my collarbone right here. This clavicle right here digs it in. I do the same. So now our ear to ear hall each other's ways and we're moving down into this position like two bulls in the middle of this dirt. Pit the chief comes over Boats are heading dot grab goes crazy. I realized that dot means ding ding. And we get go and he takes me down. I flip them over my back. I get up take him down. We go around and around. I get slammed. I slam him. He gets me to leg. Lock almost lose my breath and blackout. I come out of it. Get him in a headlock. Offset chief comes in split us up. It's been about probably felt like thirty minutes probably only been like to do that. We stand up. I'm pouring sweat hyperventilating. I had had these tousands are soda my beard at the time two of them are ripped out. I've got blood running down my neck and chest. My knees are bleeding. My ankles are bleeding and again i'm huffing and puffing now mighty. I was in pretty damn good shape at this time. I just come off this film rain of fire. So i was in pretty good shape but still michelle's tree trunk legs and it's just as sturdy rock i look at him not be to sweat glistening sweat but he's happy. The crowd is very happy for some reason. He's not happy. Just don't face looking at me while i'm going. All of a sudden chief goes round two ways two ways head down the clavicle. Here we go. Crowd's going shit ever go bam ding ding. We go around again. Same gone catapult them over my head. He comes down. I come in he leg locks again. We go from headlock. Get him in a boston. Crab he flips me over. All of a sudden chief comes in breaks us up raises both our hands. The crowd is dizzy now frantically screaming michelle runs away now. The crowd's going dow dow dow. And i'm just engulfed by about one hundred villagers. Well i go on that night very happy with my day that i accept the challenge and i think i did pretty good. I mean i sleep that night. I think i've kind of crossed cradle of truth. The northern cross for the first time in the stars in the sky wasn't looking for it revealed. Lay there awake. Saw twenty nine shooting stars. One of those moments where i really felt like tata. I'm in the crato. Love truth this is it. i'm really on it. Which maybe i was. But as i'm thinking this feeling so good about myself really feel like i am now in tune with the one divine one. I'm laying there on top. Was i'm about to go to sleep that night. Feeling so good about myself so high about myself and minos blocks up just bet go sleep. And i had some mucus in my nose so i i sit up a big lougee for better word and go to lodge it off the roof. I forgot that. I had had miskitos net on. So the lewke goes it just splattered across my face. I always do it. And i remember just starting to hal laughter because i was just in the moment like here the chosen one laghi my own face so touche anyway. The next morning we get up to leave and after we get to the edge of the boundary to that village on the way next. Eleven o'clock the next village. Guess who's waiting for me. Michelle doesn't say. A word looks in the eye. And as i crossed the badger to go he looks at me. Walks up. glasmann holds my hand and walk with me eleven miles to the next village. We didn't say a word. Get to the next village sues. I got to the boundary met. The chief got leptin. A slight bow turned around and walked back. I go to isa that night my guide. Let's talk about last night. The wrestling match. I mean i think i did pretty good. He's like oh no doubt. You do vetted better. Everybody believes that michelle too strong. Whiteman named data on his back. In ten seconds you'd better than a good good. Yeah great he goes like a while ago when you so check my name and you big man in this village not because you handle michel but many because you accept the challenge when you accept the challenge you big managers village which also very good wrestle doubt. I said yeah well. Yeah i wrestle. Told her he goes. You know michelle. He's not the only champion. Michelle is champion district and tree village back. Champion wrestler said really. Yes now do you come back. We make money. I went back there unannounced six years later. Michelle had four kids busted hip no wrestling match six years later the next morning after benji motto when i left to go hike to the next village eleven miles away guests who was again waiting for me at the boundary who held my hand and walked me the eleven miles without saying a word to the next village bowed and walk back. Michelle story because it's about accepting the challenge right so win or lose that rocky moment just going the distance that is what matters and you know looking at your life in the way that you've navigated it. It's you really have to read the book to get. How many times over and over and over you do this. Nothing in your life was self evident obvious. Now you came from a wealthy family or hollywood family was the sort of scrappy way. You get the job in the bar in the first place and then obviously earned the respect of people so they introduce you to this guy but then you you know who you are at least at that moment in your life. And so there's that effortlessness the charm to get it but then always accepting the the. What if the big. What if of not taking the work. It could have ended him. You said you actually seriously considered going back and teaching fourth grade or becoming a high school football coach and so when people think about matthew mcconaughey i remember. He used act but now his fourth grade teacher it for you to step into that space. But like i didn't need to leave that space. Because i was okay being high school teacher or the fourth grade teacher. I didn't need to leave the wrestling match. Because i was okay. Losing the wrestling Right it's just like accepting those changes is why you've survived for so long in a business that people faster within the nfl. Well how many times do we think is our i thought. Oh well if i did that. If i became a fourth grade teacher that would be d motion or a d. motive. Move in my life. No wouldn't have been it would not have been. I'm glad i didn't have to do it now. In hindsight but that would not have been a demotion. I would've found certain value. That was gonna fill my soul in that in that role that i was not finding doing the work i was doing in in hollywood so it would not have been a demotion it may have been perceived as one but i look. I've got. I've got friends and trust me. I've done it myself. You know that. Lose a job and then get another but won't take it 'cause it's less salary than maybe the one they had before and all of a sudden find themselves three four five six seven eight years a decade later gone. They're still stuck. They didn't do anything they're still saying. Like nah i'm gonna find that thing i'm gonna you missed a decade man. Just go do that. One that you love to do that. Maybe it was going to pay you less because you at least been building something to that and who knows what that would have led to. Maybe that would lead to something where you're getting paid five times more than you were doing something else. You love even more so lots of times. I say this in the book sometimes. It's not even about what choice. We just make a choice in commit to it and go in dive in because we can look up limbo sucks. We're all limbo now with covid. Limbo sucks but sometimes just go. I i don't know what to do this one. I'm just going to do it if i do this to the best my ability sometimes that lens somebody sees us do that and they come up and they go. You're actually more qualified. You're overqualified for this job. You should be doing that you like. That's what i really liked to do. They'll see it but put ourselves in a position rat because you can look up in days weeks months years can go by you can go. I've been tiptoeing around here not committing to anything for so damn long. I'm missing out. You talk a being in limbo. No your obsession values values in your own life values to pass onto your kids values for us as a society to take away and you gave a commencement speech at your alma mater. That i thought was awesome and if felt a bit like a dry run for the book because so many of the themes carry share two green lights man really really truly first of all. The book is amazing and i i really mean that. The commencement speech was amazing. Some of the values that you talked on i think are so powerful especially right now The world isn't fair. it's never going to be life as an easy. Don't want it to be which i thought was really interesting. You're gonna have to earn your way forward and that we should want it that way. What are some values whether those or others that you think people will get more out of their own life if they embrace that there's a responsibility to freedom and there is freedom in responsibility in that. Earn your way there. We remember the stuff we earn the stuff we experienced more than what the teacher tells us. Or what someone gives us for free. We just do brooklyn proverbial sweat on others mental or physical. Whatever week we've beaten built it we we understand. We felt how we got it how we achieved. It got what we wanted those stick with us whether we forget them intellectually they were written in our lineage and they build resilience and they and they build healthy true optimism. Going forward to know that. Oh no i've i've i've worked with something foreign delayed gratification. Oh their choices. I can make today for myself. That will pay me back later in life mailbox money as we call. Entertainment industry Are there are specific personal choices we can make and they're worth considering look offer hedonism. I'm all for immediate gratification. To sometimes it's like guess. Is halloween candy. Go for cycling to become a habit. Day-to-day there's certain nitra like. Hey guys tonight we're gonna blow it out the walls padded and we got nothing. We're off work on monday. Let's go you know. I mean certain time so. That's okay but there's you know. Where is the selfish joyce the selfless choice whereas what we want actually what we need whereas what. We need actually what we want. Where's the best choice for me. The best choice for wait. Where's the best choice for we the best choice for me. That's the place i believe. The hunt at honeywell's. That's the real place to go forward in trying to find T ourselves up for those great nights in the future and all the simple things. I mean bringing out of really simple. You drink coffee i do. Do you prepare your coffee but in the filter and pour the water in the coffee maker the night before not for myself but ironically do for my wife because your team for what a green light. The next morning caress. She doesn't have to come in and go. Where's that filter genius. Come in and go press the bum. You're giving our gift to yourself. You're making something easier for her. It's a very simple thing but it's a great little simple metaphor their choices. We make if you say right. Now i'm gonna lie cheat and steal to get what i want and i got it. I got an immediate green light for me. That's a battery powered green light. That's not a solar-powered green light. Why because now everywhere. I go i got to look over my shoulder to see if someone's there that i lied cheating stole from and i'm doing that. I'm stealing whose time my time now. i'm not freedom. i'm not free. i don't have the freedom. I didn't create freedom in my future. Because i chose to be making irresponsible act that i left drums reasons. Look my shoulder. In the more things we do to create in our in our future that we got to look over our shoulder the more of our most precious thing. We have in a life time that were stealing from ourselves. So it's not puritanical. it's just like it's actually serve. it's a very selfish choice And i'm a fan of the word selfish. I've read it helped. Redefine it But i believe that there selfish choices we can make that are the most self less their self less choices that we can make. That are the most selfish choices. Those two are not a contradiction and we see them that way Responsibility of freedom and the freedom in responsibility. Life's more than just straight saturday's with as much as you want just is it. We'll see how long it last in that if you really do it you won't last. Hello there we. Responsibility is appreciation of a past. It's building lineage. it's investing in ourselves. It's investing in something. We started to build yesterday that we wanna take into tomorrow. There's response that gives us freedom so to actually have true freedom. We have to take certain we have to be responsible. More responsible for certain things for ourselves who we are constantly investigating interrogating our better selves to say. I'm going to be a little bit better tomorrow. Knowing that we never land. Never we never. There's not not moment. And that is one thing i think we all got to watch. Because we all are so result oriented. Oh if i keep doing this. I'm going to get to that place of pure enlightenment. I'm gonna go tele bullshit. You don't can't be a small ascension of evolution. Yes but there's no tut album. Were always chasing yet and if we can get comfortable and understand and laugh at and and and be ready to work hard the fact that we're all just if we could just say we're all just cheating are laid to the unachievable and that's as good as he gets and that's pretty damn awesome. Bats the honeywell third time. I've said that miss talk. I love that man. Would you say that your book contains the the bulk of the wisdom that you'd wanna pass onto your kids or is there a key concept that didn't make the book that you're trying to instill in them. It's it's definitely in the book. It's not in the book in a form that my kids. Twelve ten and seven need to digest it right now because There's just the way the true stories would raise too many questions where they miss the the actual you know moral of the story you know my my parents still the first four times i got in trouble and in my family get already to get in trouble is getting a woman right was for answering to my name for saying i can't am for saying i hate you to my brother and for lion. There were values instilled in those things. Those words that hurt not the woman i got but if you've gone through life answering to whatever name lion thing going can't do stuff instead of having trouble and hating i that would hurt me. That would've hurt me in my future. Life be who i am i would that would be. Those would be hurtful way for me to go on living life to grow into human. And i think that can apply for for everybody something. We try to steal in our children. I remember this great story. My dad after already. Learn the lesson of don't say can't but forgot the lesson doom. I don't have to do my chores on saturday morning. barlow's mow. The yard weedy cranked law. More three times four times five time trying to put it on show. We'll damn it will start. Go inside a dad saw more he goes molars me. Oh and i knew ravenous. It said that bad word. Can't he did say a word. He got up slowly walked out of the bedroom through the kitchen. The garage around to the back shed with law more was pulled. A few times. Didn't start ailing down. Got screwdriver to fix this gas league where he got the to backup so it was getting gas often. Cranks is running and he walked over to me looked at me kind of lean down on his knees in the us. You see son you just having trouble beautiful. There's right sometimes you know we can't do it ourselves. We have trouble. We can seek help. Someone else can help us do that. So we too we try to instill in our children that same thing. I don't know does they. Can't they don't they're not one hundred. Perfect data try and help them understand. Why can't in hate are actually words than shit thought down. You know what i mean. They're not good for you. They're not good for your future. They don't know if you live hating. Feel like you can't do stuff or lion you're not going to create green lights in your future for yourself. Perfect perfect place to tap out guys. If you haven't already go get. The book is called green lights. it is phenomenal. i highly recommend the audio version. He is amazing and doing all the different voices and stuff guys will love it. Matthew thank you so much for joining me and everybody. If you haven't already be sure to subscribe and until next time my friend's be legendary take care.

He's the second he compliance GonNa Yell at you about the serial stuff so shit all right. Well I've been thinking I'm going back to my ways of thinking because I've got knocked.

Probably probably fourteen hundred I think for you. That's great gas right. No more no less know how you know at least double that if not triple double. I think regardless. I don't know how many words there are in the world. The Lot like over ten thousand anything without. We'RE COUNTING ALL LANGUAGES. No all language. How many words? No I mean just think of how thick at dictionary is. They like each entry so small. Yeah way over ten thousand so you think you'll know thirty five hundred. No I was just saying compared to you. GotTa be at least three four times thinking like what's an actual word unlike Dolphin is not a word like I get. This is where you lost me because listen doff like Cola's not a word. It's in Maine Right. Dolphins don't have little Jimmy swimming around a little Carl's the Kony's partner but if you ever go to like an aquarium and see a dolphin show. Those dolphins do have names and they respond to them. That scrolls that Captured okay. But they're still dolphins. They'll those are those the captured and those are also only doing that for food. This pretty much slaves most are anti. I'm saying is there's no little. Jimmy's down wrestled all their names are thousands so as I said in that sentence names dolphin its name. It's not a word yet. But there's like bottlenose dot like there's different types of dolphins that we've given. What the fuck did you just say to me far those Dolphin bottlenose dolphins? You don't know shit cold gagging. I'm so happy we do with this way now so I can just show you a bottle right. You fucking stupid terrorists looking face. I could be nice so fast. They were be like. Yep He's he's guys. This is a bottlenose Dolphin. Glebe I hate to burst your bubble bats. A doubt as a regular That's Dolphin you know. Dolphins trust the doubtful Amazon River Dolphin. I mean this guy. Looks like an asshole. Image this the psychopath early saw the bottlenose. What are still on the way why that happened. Low says a ball noses thing I open another tab.

Oh Boy Marty Mardi pegues himself at about fourteen hundred I I said I've got to know at least three times as many as as Marty say a mush. You know say all fourteen hundred actually thought about that. I thought about every word I know. Say and aardvark out this chance alphabetically. Shitting me seven hundred. What's good is to two and two is three different words right. Oh Yeah Okay now Marty's GonNa side one of them's a number. That's not playing so much IOS. Know the reason we got on this time that you have my very very smart tweeted l. laid on me daddy look for nail and a haystack. The only reason. Why would a cauterize poop in his cellphone Dolphin Right Like your name is tyler. That's true that is not a word. That's his name but Dolphin. Don't get names in the wild wild. Swimming around is not Jimmy. The Dolphin hanging out. So what how you know. 'cause I know that it's a civilization down there. Don't do names may certainly have names being civil no all enough to rape but not know enough to like differentiate each other day. I'm I know for fact their head talking to make no guy next to you so the name is Welson. They're full of Is Not work. And the reason you came onto that horrifying looking creatures because I told him there bottlenose dolphins. There's the Amazon River Dolphin there. Are you saw by those dolphin?

Know anything on named say if you think. This is like apples. Unnamed not a word right trees water drops snowflakes like. Yeah pretty much. So then you're you're taking out like thousands upon thousands of words thaw in like one who look around the room for work doorknob like things bat. That's that's that but like it's not like like for Frederick the DOORKNOB so like why is that an award and not Dolphin. Because it's just it's always that thing. I don't know bidding answer the question didn't it's always good of your Nov Dolphin. It's not GonNa Change Dow before the butterfly things. The dolphins what happens the dolphins living things that are. Let's go living things Is What like not be worse? I was trying to tell you it becomes smart. I'm reading I'M GONNA read a book and Shit Now. You make me do this book. You'RE GONNA remove. Hello my mother said something about a lawyer that becomes a drug addict seems pretty sick. Tan moby. Dick is a good said Dick. Without without a war of the will the whale so the horse named Moby cannot get real yet. That's what think you should do. Audio Books Mushin read Like let them read you books but then I also think you should be like a voice narrator for audio books. I think living. But you take a detour. It's not the same as the book that's printed like the very first and last words of the book are certainly the ones but now you get. There is very different than the author intended. The middle of the sentence right. Let's let's talk about the sense. I was a period necessary. I'm new the sentence was over. Why did you put him in chapter? Four the college boy here like I don't like this one. Let's go to five as reading like I don't know what's going on Jim. I know feels important. That's I was thinking about that last night to wildlife watching super bad movies a two and a half hours long long right away. We feel connected to these two people at their best friends. By which movie are you get a move will be? Yeah Yeah Super Bad. Like empathic of name Jonah Hill. It's like it's just crazy that I believe it so fast no matter what even though I know like boat. Wow the best friends. Yeah I don't even have to tell US pretty good. What ones picking the other one up from school? I imagine they'd be happy friendly. I hate this Dick. Come up verbally talking about going. Have Z'S ON PORN MEMBERSHIP PALS? Yeah true was just the thought. I'm always impressed. That movies can do the same amount of storytelling. That like a fifteen episode TV season can do in a much shorter amount of time. Yes that also or the towers newbies coming out. How do we not do a mall? A we had also say we can see feel way like it's like okay. People Watch movies. This don't need to be stretched out over fourteen episodes if they wanted to get done in ninety minutes. It'd get done in ninety minutes. Yeah like like a fifteen episode fifteen our show get so big. It needed a movie. They figure out a way to put it in ninety minutes. Every show has that one storyline that everyone was like. We don't need this every show your while story their life right now later this year or just a character who when we have to deal with them for like five minutes where they are moving along. I feel game of thrones had like eight of those. It'd be like don't care get to the next guy I saw. I saw article ranked a hundred people. In game of thrones that were killed a hundred hundred cards that were like low hundred like named character. So this don't include like Arabs Rent Dragon Torch in a city thousands going down. These are a hundred characters with names. I'm like it shows that don't have a hundred characters nonetheless. Kill Hundred Care Right. Did they watch now this? I appreciate. You haven't watched any every right about one. Let I have a friend that like during quarantine he had never seen any of it and just watched it all a couple. When he finished a couple of weeks ago he was like. I don't think it was that bad today today. He called me. It was like I've been thinking about that. Game of thrones and man. I didn't like this so people that have been in from day. One Who jumped in relatively late like me and people who jumped in completely late. Nobody likes it. I think you should watch it because when you're in it when it washing it back to back there no matter what. It's not bad then once you really think about it. Yeah he was like none of the stuff they told us madoff like I told you none of the none of it matters at all so we we interviewed Michael Chavez of the Red Sox the other day for section ten and we asked him just like his favorite shows of all time and he was like man. I got a game of thrones like one or two he put it above breaking bad and I was like what the fuck you talking about. And he was like got an attitude with me for a second and then he was just like well to be fair. I stopped watching after season five. I was like well no shit. You think it's good now is three one. I'm not watching this pretty much. Yeah you wake up the next day. What started thinking about. He was like yeah. I guess if they couldn't finish the job that's GONNA knock it down.

That's wooded on the side of the box the nutrition facts. It gives you only the Serio in the next to it. It gives you the calories with milk. Resin real yeah. Yeah but on your bag of apples. It's not like calories with peanut butter calories and Pie people make it to the dogs. They absolutely make it with milk. Mind I think they do. I think it's I'll say I do think some a little paola though like Oh yeah they're scratching each other's back. There's no doubt about it. But it's definitely it's made with milk in my. Are you guys living in a different world? You'd think mill and on I've never heard of anything. You're the first power. All you ever motherfucker to cross over. I wouldn't rule this out. You'd think milk like I. What are they even brands of milk? Like it's just the yes the though they have different colors yes but yeah there's different brands. I couldn't even name one note brand right now hood gallic as we think is just that like general mills like Hey. Let's collaborate on this one like supreme relive of cereal now. I think like like with anything while. They're like testing something new before it goes to market there like all right. Let's see how quickly the SAGS as you say? And they're like Oh man. This disintegrated instantly when when wet like we can't put this out needs a little bit more a little bit more to it a little bit more structure stability stick to your ribs. You'd think of assholes sitting there that's tasting all these ones out to eat like a whole fucking bowl check. He's like I know how frosted flakes tastes for every box so yes billions of fleets. Where any what you guys are saying is true. I write never stopped you before So you think they make you think they don't even consider it though it's definitely considered but I think they're making it just for the just exactly how it tastes. Dr. Okay the weirdest chasing it with a shot of milk. I think one day someone just put milk in it was like the first day it was the first thing anyone ever did was cereal or maybe somebody was eating cereals. Like this shit is draw. I'M GONNA go cow like the first day relied like pose eating series. Love is really good at one as had built in a cup and drank it while Holy Shit what's it was like the Rhesus commercial. They they tripped and fell into each other. And the serial hit. The milk landed perfectly in the bowl. Rest was history man. Oh that's just crazy minds actually realistic. I think the very first serial was oatmeal and you can only eat that. Shit wet probably. It's drought. O.`Neil oh I literally scream of a very very nice man what's What's the beef Oatmeal Moon? Eaten it around him before a he. Hey freaks out artan unless meal oats do. It's so disgusting it's just wet end. Slap alerted slaps in your mouth. The smell of it makes my week. It's so gross. Mike Brown sugar. It's delicious smell. Smells the last thing. You can chirp about it. I was literally like the lower route on top of your oatmeal couple of blue. Mary's baby. You both sticks to your ribs before your summer soup is both Nice Memorial Day meal suit. The I another media. Fuck face on the box of with a quaker oats guy. That's how long they've been eating that since they would give some to the chickens and then they'd have some themselves what happened to the. I'm just saying back like people who are eating that the people who are eating that was like the fourteen hundreds like they could only eat it wet so cereal has only ever been what I don't I just know Martin's of way that is not true aright. How much would it take to eat? A whole bowl of oatmeal like cereal. Like as big as Obama to take for you honestly if you like a serious number ten grant I really do like. Porridge is the consistency. Because if so I get earth thing but yeah. I agree with that born yesterday. The world's treat is that really have only ever seen in Ori- books here. It's the bad. Yeah grits yeah. Did you see my chicken tweet? Nigel like that well. At least Jesus. I don't know that it's a word like Dolphin. It's just just makes me know that you guys don't walk away tweets only half of a meam. You're here because of your fucking Dolphin tweet and you know what tyler that's true I don't know. Us That's what I'm saying. So we to mutual. How long ago was this with chicken? Tweet I've never heard those words and that would object in dum dum literally at didn't even do it. So either you're still Chan wrong. Certainly on the table that out for us while he finds it do. Forget the told Chicken though I was making chicken cutlets correct so I had the chicken in my hand. And then you have slap it edge and it's like it's full circle sperm chickens dead chickens back into the that's as a full life license chicken. That's a good tweet. I don't know if you worded it. This way. I use a video. Could life urge we? All you ask media thanks now. That's a good one with full circle that yet. That's a good thought. Yeah that's just like mess. Elaborate of slather anything in would it used to be. It's a bizarre thing to do for thought. The chicken was was. I thought the egg was the chickens. Poop aside the tweet. I don't think that's worse. Thought which one do you think came first chicken? I don't really. I never understood this question. One of them had to theoretically coming before the like one of them. One came from the other right heir came from a chicken or the egg turned into a chicken right. Caress like a butterfly. Yes so which one came. I was F. I the turned into a chicken. Was it a chicken I? The headed further delay has to chicken. Where does it come from or it could have been a a fucked up dinosaurs? They'd only one else that drop rates they will never thought of that. The only one else one. Yeah one dinosaur was a little bit smaller than the others and somebody has some hot grease or something and it was just a bad day for him and the resolution. Oh my gosh did you. Guys talk about hubs this when the mind. Yeah now his real bad. I'm prematurely. His that's sad microwaving. Mike leads zero for fifteen seconds. That's gay alley cats. Do the cats love. Microwaves Picturing Garfield just like time. Not Up on my husband fruity pebbles. You know Tommy eaten it with like a fork like what's his terrible at eat cereal. I know he got something He he didn't say the old somebody else in. La Cheerios Cheerios. Gross Sherline Take Jersey. I always children eating cheerios on their little. That little trae you know like savages your door to that. No she's not even close to solid food. How you gotTA wonder wish. He's afraid of just the milk. What chance can you ask her about? The she like is a serial. First thing. I'm GonNa do thank you. I appreciate it will be under desdemona morning proper. Yeah no it's Cheerios are fine. Like honey Eh. Guy Apple cinnamon good an autologous. The frosted ones plain cheerios. Now Rose they had the vision right like they came along. They had a walk so apple cinema could run so didn't necessarily in that sense but now if you're buying plain cheerios now you. I don't know things probably not going to. You've gotTa Heart Prom. Things not going zero. That's your wife coming home from memorial cholesterol as it says it's got vitamin E. Yeah okay one great. This was a fantastic. Do with Andre Germans. Thanks how did he not want to show his face now? No shared our love. That got a callback is also the perfect person to make fun of when the NBA. Any situation who Tony slummy aaliyah relation. Tony Snow doing that. That's one second duck fresca you really think he turned out that now. Don't be an idiot if turned you. Think it was like zero guaranteed dollars. And they're like yeah we'll give you infinity billion with that. You don't think it was offered much. I don't think he got offered hundred and seventy five million dollars like I care because that's literally the thing I keep. Call his friends. Make you believe these fucking Morons WanNa pay me are million. See I kind of because it's like okay. The offer only keeps going up so if he's like I mean I could just wait two months for it to be one eighty five like without doing a single a single thing different. I just need one other quarterback design or just wait so I like I don't think it's that crazy for him to just be like okay. Yeah just keep offering me bigger numbers. I just don't see like he stinks stinks. Blinkist we see Stinky quarterbacks whether you're help blitz he thinks you know me. I'm Abbas very he's put up fine numbers for like several years in a row is consistent. Is clearly the best quarterback in the League? No of course not. It's can you name ten quarterbacks right now better than no. You can't with that that sell. It would be the highest paid quarterback Dave ever have that be the highest ever anyone's around the next year mahomes will bring that. That's what I'm saying. That's how it like. The highest paid is never the best. It's whoever hit free agency recently. That's just how it goes. Whoever goes right after mahomes remember? What draft that Is that like the Baker Lamar. What's more if if John Watson signs like a week after mahomes he'll be is what sounds like the thing with them. They might not ever sign because each of them is going to be like. I can't signed to. He signed whoever whatever that next clan. I think that's the Baker Rosen. All that bakers be like. I want fifty million dollars a year. They're so the market is. That is the more Jacksonville. Say Okay. I want sixty that like anything. Mahomes talent act like. Don't take this yeah Hook. I'm believe they offered it. I don't think I believe he turned it down. I believe that kirk cousins is not good. He's getting like money mush so much but he curses better than deck. He stinks. That's what I'm saying. In Kirk cousins got like eighty five all guaranteed just signed another just because he was available at all it is. You're available and you can play Gordon. Like he's a very average quarterback will pay whatever he wants. Our defense could try a win. Some Games do Teddy Bridgewater. The saint backup last name shouldn't have been a backup but he just got. I think twenty million a year now so it's like you're just perfecto though. Because he was sick as a backup three games he played. That's he's he's a bigger Lamar Jackson. Faster Tom Brady. He's he's got. It all adds for Jason Hills chest. He might like that man. Honestly I think he would like the losers Dak Prescott you think. Tatum Hill was better than Dak Prescott. No see I'm it's one of those you're gonNA look and be like it's eighteen names that you wouldn't take back over and it's like Shit. I guess he is a top ten or twelve. That's how San Now. Did you see the the fifteen thing though of Kick the onsite case to attempts at four thousand fifteen to two thought. It was one known to attemps. That should be third and fifteen then. It should be fourth and twenty five. That's normal thought it was. You'll get one tribe but you had to pick up at least fifteen yards if it's two tries but the chiefs are just cut their punter right now and just signed another receiver. Just like if it's two tries on the first when you get seven now it's fourth and eight or you go right back. You have to get fifteen again. Lewis tweet right now but I'm trying to find it now. I either way clubs today. Received updated playing rules most interested in alternate to the onsite kicked out aloud team. A chance maintain a possession by going for four thousand fifteen hundred twenty five yard line out so it's one insulin what okay next instead of kicking off after late score in the fourth quarter team have the option for one on one of play from its twenty five yard line it would need to gain at least fifteen yards retain possession or the is a regular place that Cheese Blouse. A sixteen yard game is replacing. Like an onside. Kick US kids literally win you the game that we see? How many successful kicked year like four or five? Not Bad if you it with this. We'd have that shattered by like the first month of the season. The chiefs can lillies record of never playing defense. Just no we On kickoff we're just GONNA go eight to nothing. Never leaves the fields over defenders and just if the players don't I liked it they're trying things because I the honest I can. It can go man again successfully. Four Times a year we can go. Yeah I wouldn't Miss Yard sector now kickoffs happy when they changed that more touchback. Good 'cause like the one hundred yard punt return you get like once every four weeks just anywhere were all. I want sick in the giants Raven superbowl though where there were like three touchdowns in thirty seconds because they want him back. That was sick but we already saw that. So it's papers heading and baseball like KFC that Dodo had always likes to be like while we have Bartecko on some run. Listen we gotta we got that home run. We're not gonNA get it again. Realizes were around his best rates right. That's the biggest argument against it. Only met fans want this. Aren't they doing all this year for the proposed season to come back? Aren't they doing an leaks? Breaking News Marty is on top of that all the ages. Did you see that breaking news? Tweeted I did Jared Sarah refuting. It will jar because he'll never jarred says he has lived mation and just doesn't tweet it because he loved my sources. What the fuck point to get done. All it always saw was the e mail will be sent to play okay and that was exactly a red word for word just tweeted. It didn't feel all all the eight I don't. This feels like a very a pandemic had to do with getting all D. H. In there was just somebody who's like this is it's now or never do talk about it for a while like it was going to vote like two years from now whenever the CBI was And it was probably going to get over like brought in so the NFL so this feels like the NBA switching. The schedule around to release on Christmas area like this is the MLB's version like the HD central for everyone right now they are no. It's best for the pandemic you don't want to the pitcher touching the ball and then the bat I it's just business a a fifty man Ross. Expenses No leaks though it just have Shinto Plaza. I didn't think about that like leaves already. Don't get paid anything. That's what do the same amount of people at a horse race. That a baseball game take no fans run. A big urban horses on the baseball game truck can go nine innings and this may add some movement. He was dealing China's again. So we're talking about the amount of people in baseball game. Like if we do fifty man roster zones still be twenty five people roster but coaches and like umpires all that shit all the essential people yet like horse race the jockeys those traders is out to save their. They're running races shits or seeing they match up those. I think it's way less for the horse races. And on the ice being mean smog. People mass less. No I think I really like their trainer like the owner and then everybody else is like owners family friends like Shit light not essential people so yeah I think course be much much. Fewer people lesser fewer. Not As many people look colleague what what's wrong? What's your terrible question. You talking with my win. The Kentucky Derby mic anthem. I mean we've talked to stuff. At least it's interesting has come from earn the debate like we can't have more people in a horse race at a baseball game. Otherwise the corona you know allowed it is happening. Okay of horse racing can happen with the same amount of people there baseball but also you gotta factor in half of the people. There are horses. I don't know how I mean. I know his jumping from animals. But I don't know how like if it's more likely to spread from horse to human vice versa. Baseball Air by touch baseball. There's also there's no like tag plays and horse there's no horses like slide into second rundown. Clayton's you take place twice got the Colorado you just lay the tag on him and he's positive. Listen I know fucking get this thing getting snapped not a thorough from from catcher. I bohm you're out. Guy spits his snuff out whole locker. Room got yes. They've talked about banning. I can't wait to the first person objected for like throwing a fat lip in and spitting a huge wad on the steps. You'RE OUT OF HERE PAL. You're done that's basically bioterrorism you're out of here. Us could get growing. We're banning all do you. What do you mean? You can't just tell people especially baseball players like this is all they have. All they do. They were like fourteen. Or that's the only thing we look forward to. That's it because they play baseball because it looked cool. Yeah they WANNA did. A magic Jordan dipped like on-court. He had a was man. Gus just keeps this tune on the side. Gus just followed them like a referee and spits and gus sketching. Yeah Hinton head not shot in Utah and then turning and making my paying. Husky is cut in their foot. That's rose and we toes cut invading is they? They can't spend on the ice. No why I'd be spitting all over the fucking freeze immediately. Right with scale like slows AB- stills even even better playing barrio cart during like during a think they'd be fine is my point so in between periods and shit like they'll take their their Skates off. They'll take their socks off. And then they'll like cut in between their toes put like a wad of chew in there and it will get into their bloodstream. That way Dutch it's an invasion took a edible patch like the put it on the top of your foot. I was like just feels like how heroin starts very much edible on your show yet. Basically like nicotine Edible and relying on yet like the veins at the top of your foot. I don't know if it's because they're like there's not a lot of skin there but yet we're for whatever reason I guess getting your bloodstream quickest or strongest. Whatever the shit work so. Yeah but if they're taking snuck through they tell me hockey hockey while sport while completely hypothetical you have anymore. Hypothetically hit my la occupy the thing. I'll say hockey is like like jars. Like seventy five years old. Who is the the really tall guy on the Bruins? I is like seven or like six nine or something like that. Yeah he's like like actually like fifty years old Joe Thornton also like fifty years old. They're like I feel like every team has like one like geriatric and it's easily like one of the two most physically demanding sports we have. I just don't know how that keeps slot like how. How does I keep happening like the would you lose in speed? You make up an old man strength. I guess to Lissette like he's not gonNA lose the billion skate. It'll be coming slower. But if they're coming at him you're not gonNA fifty one zero and off his of block. You're not moving him one bit so that you all three of us are getting all the way we give everywhere by far all three of us. Professional athletes is it me but still even like older. People look at their struggle. I'm getting weaker. Yeah do you think that is i? Don't know man is body displays. No good are three of his juice. Durham pandemic let's all Jews during quarantine. Just come out just Jack. I think that I think we decided like two months ago when it started. I don't think we're getting attitude. I don't think there's any rush a you know I really don't. Don't you think we almost hungry much? No I think they're just GONNA have to open it. It's like do you want we've done for two months. Worse has any other country in the world. Did this now lit avid. Seen literally any other be like I need my coffee only US single country. Oh like going nuts. Like us to open Becker doing Florida's open a fifty percent. They're living No math that we gotta be close. Georgia's gotTa be close nonsense. It doesn't make sense that we're all not doing the same thing because people won't fucking listen now. That's the thing I think we would be like out of the woods of everyone listened from the get-go New Zealand's out of the woods because they did a four week complete shutdown. Listen China most people listening and they still had like a second surge. So it's I. I don't think we don't think we can have completely different subject Yen Bill. This question he said. Would you rather drink the water from the TUB After show after someone showers that water or the water from Tuna fish who shower. What are your friends? My close personal friend. Ryota no two creams and strong man. I really my one cannot do tuner juice. That's what I'm saying Tuna Tuna. I'd really show that. Is that the same out? Like eight ounces of both or whatever six now measuring cup to. I don't know because like if I only have to drink the small news Dutt. Those people are s wasted x more questions after the question. I I didn't get your logistics. You're drinking I think I'm with you. Movie Gimme that shower water. I don't want no part. Tuna Fish. Water are then Coley slurp the water the tuner. It's like yeah two ounces versus whole bathtub full that's why fucking asking good with the metric system sorrow. I don't think several Columbia high they like fucking nail down not a single system. That's what by that like NASA. Should we give them too much? We give them to tear down. Get mass idea. Data pay. No we need them. We do need them. But I'll do. We need NASA especially. We haven't been the moon since nineteen seventy two. Yeah no haven't but we give them credit quick sleaze Confirmable what he worked for. Nasa Leah's I know I don't know I just think these professions too much credit even though what they do just because we know they're smart. I think that a lot with an this isn't the best time to go on his rampage. Doctors in or show readings doctors during these doctors. Don't know what the hell they're doing. How's that far? They shifts they. They have like an impossible job a lot of the time where they're just trying to narrow down what you have but a lot of them won't listen. That's my biggest like when I had blood clots. They told me that I tore my acl. And I had to cause a scene in the emergency room because I knew this guy was a fucking hassle and then finally they gave me the blood clot. And they're like Oh yeah big clot and it's like a new shit dude. That how I saw my father after constantly battle them to get like what he wanted done and be so often right. Then get it you get a lot of patients. It's a tough job but sometimes claim the shit ears. You know I believe that. They don't listen for Shit because this they're told that they're smaller than you. There I saw case in seventy eight guy thought he had a blood clot. It was a tornado. You have a tornado. Extra Mara. Another doctor told me you can't walk on a tornado. Seattle and I was like Logan. Magazines split an entire season super bowl onto tornadoes sales and we thought that was the most thing everyone knows to use. Can't cut out early Ranch Kit. You can walk five yeah. No big argument with this was a different different states hospitals and that argument so yes was the doctor. How old was the a blood clot? Acl doctor he wasn't that old hokey. Because I haven't been I was like I feel like Dr to get recertified like drivers. Now Yeah like you if you're a doctor and your seven years. I'm not saying you can't be a doctor anymore. But there have been so many advancements that you were medical school do that you just need a little refresher something every every couple of years. Keep your certification Dr Tom's fucking eighty five and his aides. No I've never heard of it now. Hi Can you imagine being the doctor lists Gulf from Dolphin Sauce bashing doctors? I can't imagine there's ever been a single doctor who's listened to this ship. That's how you new reject me. I'll put in place you're GONNA get one hundred reply from an MD such eighty five.

Garelli is that food's really good fair of just sitting there just just getting berated no not no not at all not in the slightest is bad person. I am not ever only thing I meant to tell you. Guys drifts don't really slowly. I could see that. I think it's too much work for them to sleep. Like the get up and down from standing up all the time Iraq but they only sleep from ten minutes. Two hours a day professional basketball players best player was basketball players. DoN'T SLEEP. They sleep very narrow win when they finish. Finish a game eight.

Fraud talk about the wizards. Oh let's get to it. That's all I think. People want to hear about him on the wizards. Are we doing the Washington Wizards? You went in and fucked jobs. Figure the wizard Gilbert Arenas winning a lottery out of San like three hundred fifty thousand dollars.

That might immediately like one hundred people one hundred people tell you it's the sandwich you'll ever have just like. There's no way it'd be that good and also if Glenn tells me sandwiches good man who knows a good sandwich. It's why they treat him good in there you on the other side of Burgers.

James Light Lebron not about actor I could see Lebron Great With that is voices like Weird Shit. I I don't see Lebron man I'm I'm just judging it off of all the pump up speeches he read those speeches before. That's how he's reciting line. Come on we gotta get this going on come. He's writing. He's writing his when he's reading other people's I think it's easier for them. I hope I get him to fucking Tom. Brady Thousand Twenty one documentary As an ports keep it and I don't I don't like documentaries on people still playing I I. I WANNA like. Forget about them then. They allow remember Tom. Brady's wrong like couple of years when they the the Brady six all about just as draft class and everyone else from his draft class was long dead like that was founded in. You know his ships that he like four years ago. Yeah I don't understand the rush to I don't even know that's the thing is even a documentary or is it just like nine. Tom Brady life lessons that he wants to teach the kids out there. I just can't imagine be interesting last. Dance out right. After Ninety eight you have no context like nothing. Nothing is set in yet like our kids are going to hear about Tom. Brady's Day would like to watch it because they hear about it all the time. Maybe I mean listen. There's a chance he was just like this guy and like five years. It's going to have five of these things. So let's get this out now. Let's get out writing and kind of everything on the books is want this on record. I was whatever that that's why I don't know of excellence. Schefter tweet say is. That's where I found out. It was nine thought nine and I was like. Oh I'm just not interested in it and it's not even on him. There's a lot of athletes. I would not watch a part documentary. That's why it doesn't even say documentary series would've nine part. That's I think it's just like him him talking about like success which may be worse. I'm out yeah way worst. I'll certainly check out one and see what happens. But I'm like when the Jordan thing got announced in they they just showed all people who are going to be talking in it. I was like Oh yeah. I'm all in on that when this came out today. I was just like I feel like I know. Literally every like I never watched Hernandez thing on net flicks live. I lived through that. I knew I'm sure there were things I didn't know but I don't care like I knew most of it. That's all of like if it came out yet they had been recording since two thousand and nine or something like the last dance in like it was like okay made. They had full access but not after the fact. I'm good I will have news. I ain't going to jail for taking money from Duke though you watch that much out. When he got prison Guantanamo Bay. It's just said that he had mixed tape is now pro troops really mahfuza troop design DOT COM K. Course guy was served your country for you to Schmucks Iota. My aunt gladys to so glass still late. Show the seeing the same. Since that day I I realized I can't get excited when I talked enough. That make sense Mardi. I bought something reasonably that when it gets air. I'M GONNA show you reading? We very excited or you're going to yell at me. Sinking all now gone show. You broke my parents face on the other night. They got like a coffee machine. That's a coffee machine. It's a liquid machine or in this one thing. They got Romney the one and then the cops that's like this is a this put it down. It's insane also on lot. They call like that. I think it was like three ninety nine people. That's insane I'm like I don't think it was that much like if you're gonNA getting your money's worth so we're GONNA put juice of my counter. It's unbelievable I would have your house there. Or they have it at their house or wherever there in Florida. Nice me Predator those parts one more time we need to get the fuck Outta. I want to try one before I bought it. You know what I mean because those packets it all comes down to those packets if they're just like all sugar terrible you don't use it a couple times but they think believable the only bad thing is there's no doubles can't. Doodo house if I can alter like the pack is the pack but if I can alter how much liquor are want to counteract it which I mean I still can and will but if I can get you just pour it in poor the actually in there. But it's just cool that just sits on. It's like bullets on the side. Which is stealing. Ella? Rummage Christ. I can't believe like it had never been thought of. I'd never thought of it before. They actually blew my mind. How old's the curate? Like seven years came. Alcohol should went backwards. Somebody should just not do that with coffee. People care way more about coffee than they do alcohol. If they like prohibition and people had to choose alcohol fucking added here for coffee. Beans DECAF will get Whiskey. Outta here. We would never have another alcoholic again. Starbucks would be thriving. Hey it's true for you got what was this. Move no charge because the least charge devices I've ever seen pro. I'd never charged shits. I appreciate I appreciate you reaching the charger. I feel like even a month ago. You let it die absolutely I do. Let things die off It's like Kramer. I like to see like when I'm on. Emi Cossio fardon though for sure it's a little bit a thrill it New York. Awful them well. I don't know gas stations and city. None how where would you put them? What in the city. Where would you fucking but a gas station in floor ever yell it? Some of those parks often said about that city to green. Now there's a couple of churches on Fifteenth Street Marathon. And they're not if they put them on the east west side highway not a lot of them but like before car have to leave. Manhattan to come back and I think about it when I come in from the airport because I'm I just remember thinking like okay. Acid gas stations close to the airport. Then after why I don't see any and I'm like where like if you're just like going into the city that day you've got to get your guest If if you live in the city you you only have a car to leave the city. You don't drive around the city all the time and if you if you don't live in the city you are driving into the city like Queens Hasim Brooklyn Housing Jersey. Hasim maybe expensive to accident. Dana fucking took my car to the city for. He fucking got picket and he goes arche he was. Why so bad. Nothing to do with you. I said you had do. They got the license plate. It's undermining the not like Dana. I know you're paying that you moron. We're KINDA ticket parking. How much is the ticket? Sixty five shit. That's literally on top of hydrant. Switched sides mistreat fire. Engine could do that guys. I'm sorry he's a moron. He's an actual morally sex safety bones rough big living artists twenty five and I don't pay them either sixty for high tech on my you hall once. Schorr didn't pay that an idiot to pay that be the Donald I live live and right that ticket with me man. You think I'm GonNa Pay Shit react. I did something not great. Ill Day I I keep I get hammered with easing pass and there are only three dollars. It's like literally three one thousand nine dollars a swamp I pay for like five months. Two hundred thirty I called I called yesterday. You Know The Times right now or I can't be doing two dollars. I took it down. Team mean that's incredible swinging. What what was the original ticket for? That would be like a toll without easy pass. I got you from two thirty to nineteen. That's pretty my biggest thing with those is like why like no one's that's made up money. Those fees like not like solve like no one's job gets saved because you paid that money you know what I mean like the same nineteen dollars to use the F. I drove the. Didn't the road still going to be there like that. Nineteen dollars should never get higher. Yeah that's so stealing it. Literal Yorkers are working on the Bridgeton gets going in Gara. No no it's make believe. Money and infuriates may mine. Went from the same thing like I. I drove I think was like January and it was like eleven dollars and I didn't pay to light the other day and it had gone up to like thirty. It didn't go to hundred like yours but I was like. I'm not gonNA argue this pay. I thought two hundred with a bit much on school. Excessive I think twenty five fifty seventy five but I'm not sure it gets two hundred but not from nineteen classic thing when you get two tickets like Later than it's like you get an email or something like you owe shithead Watson. Yeah tickets I get on media. It was a pay which was going to pay. I know it never be here again so I'm now. Have you guys ever challenged like a moving violation like speeding ticket? Absolutely never never got one. I almost got arrested because of one way to wait to save the story mood swam thousand detective so I had like Shit. The best would be go like. Have you ever beaten him? I got it reduced but I've no. It wouldn't thrown out. I've gotten one reduced one thrown out one very much upheld on one one and one anywhere. I did Arkin ticket. I might aid because I can. They put it was my car and they had a picture but on the ticket they wrote the wrong license number down and they were like you know what they meant. This is valid. Were two very funny. You just like fucking it. Shut up catchers once I went and it was like someone told me Iran like a red light when it was very clearly green so I think it was just like end of the month quota like I just have to get this ticket out there if you pay if you pay if you don't and you fight it like I'm just GonNa like 'cause it what it would happen is like you would wait out in the hallway like the judge's chamber and I saw like the cop come in and like they called to and then he left and I was like well I know for a fact. That was my cop. I know I couldn't be more sure. That was the guy who pulled me over and they called me and they were just like yeah. He left for the day so any any case. That's his that he already left for just automatically gets dismissed like he forfeits and this is great news. Thank you very huge to leave. I was like I know what this means is big time win for. The McMahon fought at seven hundred dollars speeding ticket or I didn't like it and that's why we fight hundred forty the twenty schools now ninety two now do ninety two in a fifty to fifty. Because I've never seen a speed limit signs as fifty for one. I thought it was a seventy. I was still going very fast but as the guy gave me the ticket. Is there anything we can do opposite? He's like I take speeding very seriously many to challenge it. When I'm walking. He's already there. I was like this guy. He's been here since eight. Am I like no low contender and they lowered it to four hundred and I had to take like defensive driving classes and got no points. That's like this money means nothing. You can cut a seven hundred dollar cost of the tells me you can cut the anything so I told you about that. Though when I was convinced by friend that my car ran on milk NAS. It sounds familiar story. I went eighty twenty because I was convinced. This one button on my gas pedal that you press. It feels like a jolts to call and I convinced the night. Pour milk into it and it makes Kogo faster and he was like starting to believe it. So I fucking rammed it. Eight hundred twenty and the Guy. Putting the backup car. The neighborhood you should be in jail. I was on the Highway Assault Liberty with ninety two but listen. I know kids jumping on a highway. I know soccer ball rolling many days. I can convince so that milk is running my call in Utah. Definitely GonNa let you go of. I was explaining to my friend here. It's again all over your hands. The skim milk in the judge. Cut them off mixture cargo faster now a at boys being boys out and like Amherst is a notorious. They'll just put speed traps everywhere like their whole town thrives off giving college kids take our here. That's they're all economy so coming right off the highway. That's like this big bridge. You go down this big ramp and it's like sixty there and it's fun to Go Down Like Zorro ramp. It's fun and unlike a media like hidden in the trees will have like a thirty five mph side like hidden they don't ever say and one day I was going Like I think it was sixty nine because he was like what pulled me over. He was like if you're going one more mile per hour. This wouldn't just be a speeding ticket. It'd be a felony because it would double the speed limit super super speeder. That's what they call it if you're over so many like if I was doing ninety five instead of ninety two it would been. I think if you're over twenty five over on a two lane or thirty or something something like that. If it's super speeder it's automatically a felony. You go to jail like on the spot. That sounds sick way. Did Not get you go to jail for speeding. You can't superspy if they're like you're being because it's a big. They don't call it superseded. When did you live in Georgia merge ninety two season upon superspeedway and it recommended Georgia before I finished drought convicted at seventy five miles an hour? More on a two lane road or eighty five miles an hour on any row or or highway. So Yeah Probably. Should've superspy suspend your license. They take that very seriously and sounds like you're like just crushing it though quack. Yeah I was linked to work. This is great going to work own. Were speeding. I was literally trying to go work. He was like I don't take too liked it so I was like okay. Nothing government works another. I got pulled over once and I'm glad it happened to me so when I went to high school and college with and I got pulled over for going through a green light and it's one of these things like it's it's a weird road so it's like one of the like if not most of the time it's going to ways like in a green light like both of them are green. You know what I Made. My both both ways can go but this one only my way was green. His was read so he thought I just where I would like. I was stopped so we stopped and then it turned like what kind of psycho stop. I disagree with Red Light Truth. Blow Red Light. Yeah Red Muddy. You can do technically illegal. But we'll get to that if you're on a one way turning onto one way you can take a left on out that's legal. Oh by was crossing on the highway again code used to do that thing where. I I stopped a mill in a section. I put my flashes on saying I don't know what's happening and people get out to help me and like take off but this is this gets you out of wet. Jan like when it's the intersections blocked or something. What's the purpose? No Jim Justice curious. I didn't tell you that jam for Exams Jam. One time was fucked up. I Like I did it in a big intersection and I was on like this. It's not working people It's done. Nobody could go and then of course. A short yellow bus was stuck at an I had. I was like all know. This is where my whole thing's just as the last time I did it smart good. It's very funny when all like all the people I am. Yes very funny when the elderly on their way to the hospital. I think I'm causing everyone to not crash again. Nothing's crashing like stopping the middle of a busy intersection for that. I still have my flashes on. You're right I'm only feel so dumb. The my apologies Martin. We pulled me over and I'm like it was after I was working security so it's like two in the morning. I just want to go back home so I don't even like look up. I just had my license and I've got like my hands here. I'm looking forward and all of a sudden I hear coli. My license doesn't say Coley so I know it's someone who knows me because before barstool too so I look up dowry or not greasing right yeah could be every day in school and so he's like. Oh what are you doing trying to go home? Lamb writing them. It's like did you get this over with I'm pumped. I'm not going to get a ticket here. I assume but also like Levin. Let's move it along and he's just like why did you blow through that Red Light? I was like I didn't know you did. I was like I drive this way every day every day but I wouldn't just be I arrest people like you every day. I was also another car. Went through with me. Why did I've seen COPS pullover to cars before? Why did you only call me over? Who was this move? The other car had multiple people like US pulling me over and so we disguised has got like I know like I'll I'll die knowing I went through green light. Like the fact that he pulled me over his chaos. But if it wasn't someone I knew I would have gotten a ticket for Dr Green Light. Oh Yeah you've been done almost got one for a cops that I was going down the wrong way on a one way and I was like. I'm looking at a stop a working. Stop Lights workweek out of commission. It wasn't like new and not working out like I slowed down at the yellow and went through the green. He was like And he talked to his partner in put the pad away like onto. Green does mean go. He's got no clear state. It'd be a man. Yeah No I. I haven't seen many people pulled over darnall this because I feel like people are speeding. Have you seen the people they drive from New York to La like that's their whole? They tried their name but they draft from New York daily. They're trying to set the record. For how fast they can do it in their. They've done in like thirty hours but they were like pandemic nobody on the road so they hours I think i. I can't think of the name of them but I was like one very wet group to be apart. A Taliban group. That's the elderly people at the Mall. Just Walk Understand. Read more than a year we. They made the twenty eight hundred Mile Journey from New York Los Angeles and Twenty seven hours and twenty five minutes. That's raising a stopped of twenty two minutes. Are they have. Yeah Dan you gotTA BE JUST WEDDING YOURSELF. Just picking out the window. That's insane. Well what good comes they just because once they get there like they send it back to the group? Okay now we gotTa be twenty seven twenty five. I was like that's like a dead bird groups just like we got a better. I would much rather burn group like not even a question. I don't even want to fly from New York to La. No who Dan like. Twenty two minutes of stops. You must stop one place like when eat there? That might be my whole twenty two minutes. Stop and I'm not driving twenty-seven extra hours after how fast these people going out. Let's see new speed record. Let's see where the fuck did you talk about a movie? Let's say they. The record was in two thousand thirteen. Two guys drove an average of ninety eight miles an hour in their twenty eight hour. Fifty minute cannonball run and that's unbeatable and guys broke it by our twenty five minutes. So I'm I'm guessing hundred and five miles an hour for twenty seven straight hours Komo man. I'm I'm just. The people broke it. The new ones because jars from December yet twenty nineteen. Yeah yeah the. They topped out at speeds of more than one ninety. That's will undertake. That shouldn't count. If you're doing it in a g Oh come home and do their civic get like lump. You're doing any miles now the whole time. I WanNa know when ninety. And they're like no. We didn't get stopped at on my Ha- interesting. They should be ratting themselves out. There are one ninety one ninety s and these to look like Dickens. Absolutely feel like this in your hair without being addicted. They averaged one zero three hallway. That's absurd yes so the old record was they averaged ninety eight and they were like. It's pretty much unbeatable in these guys are like we can twenty seven hours and twenty five minutes is pretty from New York tallies just a day is insane airport to like from the time you woke up in the morning to get to the airport like two hours early in New York the time you get to La. Get an uber to your place. That's what like nine or ten night there in Kansas by. Then they'll meet you there. Yeah it's eight hours door full day of work and they're just like not in Pennsylvania. We'll see you know we'll be there tomorrow for breakfast. Don't listen. Most of that trip is Pennsylvania. That's state just keeps going. I can't even imagine I would be still in the state of New York and like as a bad idea yet. I mean this whole thing gets completely thwarted but the smallest bit of traffic one construction. The like if you're just cooking as I do we were making record time but we got to Ohio. Had To stop. But if you do what do you do? Do you? Just stop and turn around. You're not gonNA break the records. So what's your taxable is. Boys almost had a chance. So close ain't flashback. First Class to New York again tomorrow. Believe Jimmy Kimmel's Howdy got to Ohio you make Kansas or something and just if one lane goes to one lane for awhile. What's like the finish line? So is it like you can see. La like what's La's the ending up like La county land with something ocean ocean either. Twenty seven hours is like New York to floor is like twenty four hours. Right Allerton. Democ listen these guys? Doing in thirty minutes can call when it gets. Yeah they were aided by network of spotters driving ahead of them in reporting road conditions as well as the placement of police beanie traps. This is this is. This is cheating. Yeah this isn't i. Don't hold this record at all now. Now I'm curious. These people exist need to one. Ninety is and it's road you don't even like no that's yeah one that is true. That's a big but you have to look at the map. A lot like yeah. Absolutely he can't be doing that in ninety eight one nine. That's that's recklessly jail immediately by themselves as I say. They got like a whole network if they would drive in ahead of them. They've got so people are guessing like okay. Traffic coming up in Kansas take the Nebraska way like their ways used wage to. Oh yeah how probably ways in the car and then the other in a souped up Mercedes. So it's not yeah. I don't hold this record valley at all. That's bullshit where do you think would be the worst stretch to do at night? The the planes. I feel like when you're like flat. I like all that. And you're like Oh my God. I'm seen a building or human and might twelve. I only Trent holding up gas station pizzas so we got twelve hours Muslim. College I did Amherst to to Clemson and I left at night and Pennsylvania was just dark in flat broke Pennsylvania. Horrible it's so bad. It's the biggest state like there's no bigger state than Pennsylvania a realistic. It's a dozen end. Never the drove from New York to Kentucky Woods End Cincinnati was depressing. Listen Cincinnati Cincinnati. Ohio is a state is pretty grim folk. Would state know uplifting things you know? Why did you drafting Kentucky? A wedding? It was terrible and how long hours sixteen I think but that those guys good went home for lunch. A man whose personnel drove was from Alaska to Mississippi for place.

He's like I was doing two hundred eighty seven miles. I got pulled over once. I told the cot where I was going he He gave me an expert on. Yeh let's roll that way. You said you yeah follow me. I don't get classic twitter stories like that obviously not during quarantine but that wasn't even that classic at the time it was like yeah this we'll talk about this for few hours. Of course there's something. Yeah we talk news talk about every day. I don't get how it resides sports in Trade House other new. There shouldn't be any news now. I gotta say to a point where I'm used to just not having sports adding when they co be Like I'm not I've never been used to like nothing eve like. I'm not watching may baseball. But it's on I'm aware and when it comes back I'm going to be like this is where I don't like it. I don't like you're you're lying. If you like art like saying that you're getting used to know sports almost like I forget. What sports are? You liked lots. The Michael Jordan was like that looks like difficult. World's biggest difference. We're we're in a parallel universe to what we're accustomed to suck in black hole and this is what we're at now. Yeah because I the other thing too is like I realize more just because I've been doing social media like for so long that it just became my life to be like. Oh what's on tonight? Oh it's the these are the important games. They're they're these ones. I should like keep a close eye on and just having them taken away like that was freed me up. I don't know what to do. Law was onto us like man. It'd be the first round. Playoff man Lakers be playing the clippers tonight and now. I'm just like they start. The season Back Bay started back.

There's not one thing that doesn't start with these trying times during these times certain times whatever does nothing to do with it where literally talking about cooking French toast but during these times watch out wakes way too much butter in these trying times move ships. That's why out of is going to be a legitimate twenty twenty two before we get it not mentioned at all. I believe like I think we have to have like a fool one. We're GONNA head weird any one at least one sport to do. A complete cycle as normal like basketball's been thrown off baseball's been thrown off. We'll see football's affected but if football has regular and that's the thing they're not going to so that's why I don't know win it'll be we're gonNA need a whole college season a whole something. I don't know when we get I kind of hope. It never goes to the first game. It'd be like we be it's GONNA be like we. WanNa war most Japanese every that I think about Joe Buck being just talking about like showing pictures of people in hospitals and like the sad fox. Pianos play a giant flag over the entire stadium.

It was like a month and a half ago. You have to keep people like you out of out of the gorilla pen but it's the like a month and a half ago. Zoos were like we have to start feeding the animals to the other animals and like I've heard no updates on that so I think they just went ahead and did that articles like we found multiple species that caught this shit and and that was the last. I heard which is usually a bad sign horrible. Because if they fixed it they would be. I tell you a this Cincinnati Zoo. Whatever we're Kobe free. I ain't heard Shit now Leo lying Arab daisy to count our cows not at the zoo mushy everything about that and I think about that probably once a week. It doesn't oh you do.

Write a sentence still say so many things. But it's only like three little words translate for our stupid asses because English has way too many words. doesn't make sense. That's why I don't think it's that meant like I. It's like three hundred thousand all countries.
