Some Asians will return to Uganda. One positive and completely unintended legacy was that he gave Britain one of the most successful migrant groups in its entire history in terms of economic social cultural success. RuPaul rajani. It's kind of made me realize just how resilient the Ugandan Asian community have been not only moving once but twice from India to Uganda from Uganda to wherever they went. Resilience is the word that really comes to mind that they've made such an impact. They have survived so many traumas. For his part, Idi Amin sees out his days in a 15 room house in Jeddah. Alongside his 6th wife and 25 of his children. Living off a $30,000 a month stipend. He really went into retirement. Usually when dictators are deposed, they try to scheme from neighboring countries in the way that a boat he did in order to overthrow the people who overthrew them. I mean, was wholly uninterested in any of that politicking. He seemed quite happy to give up ruling Uganda going to the supermarket going to the mosque hanging out with his kids swimming every day and living on a Saudi government pension. I'm sure they told him no politicking just keep your head down. I'm sure they said that. But many other dictators wouldn't have done it even if they'd agreed with it. The ultimate tin pot tyrant, rabid megalomania, mass murderer becomes a devout and observant Muslim. And also a fruitarian, living on nothing but oranges or so it said. The locals give him a new name doctor Jaffa. He drives around in a white Cadillac, enjoys fishing and watches sport beam viral succession of satellite dishes. My personal preference would have been to have him stand trial, had it been out for the crimes that he committed. I also think that in standing trial, his record being at some in would have raised very many uncomfortable questions. I believe that many people in part today were probably happier that we didn't come back and contest his legacy or try to see his legacy.

"If ever there was a man of peace, archbishop janani Lewin, it is. From his origins in a humble village among the acholi people, he starts out as a teacher. By 1974, he's risen to the very highest position within his church. Archbishop of the metropolitan province of Uganda, Rwanda, Burundi, and boga. In February 1977, archbishop Lewin commits his thoughts to paper. He writes a lengthy considered letter of protest to Idi Amin. Urging him to take pause to bring an end to the senseless cycle of violence. On February the 16th bloom is arrested, alongside two of a men's own cabinet ministers. They had the courage to add their names as signatories. Now they are charged with high treason. They are agents of Milton a bote, it is declared. The men are brought to the plush Nile hotel, where 2000 soldiers and TV cameras await. Laid out on the lawn is a massive cash in weaponry. They alleged arsenal with which the archbishop was set to overthrow Amin. It's the epitome of a kangaroo court. The bemused archbishop dressed in his full clerical regalia is forced to read a confession. When asked what to do with the archbishop and his partners, the scripted cry from the soldiers goes up. Kill them. For about an hour, a civilian read out a letter, which has supposedly written by Milton avete and exile laying out plans with the archbishop to organize an insurrection against ED means regime, the reading out of that letter itself as a remarkable piece of theater, the man who's reading the letter himself had been physically abused, at one point he faints as he's reading the letter. He's so overcome with fear and emotion. The sound recording tells us that a soldier came up behind him and kind of revived him and eventually propped him up back on his feet. Many ugandans are on tenterhooks as to whether Amin will go through at the sentence. Then the next day radio Uganda reports an extraordinary piece of news. Archbishop blew him and the two cabinet ministers have been killed in a car crash. In a remarkable turn of events, as the news reader describes, the three men apparently tried to overpower the driver on their way to the detention center. The car ran off the road during the struggle. It seems a highly convenient outcome to say the least. While the bodies are never released to the public, those that do view them claim that the broken bones and bruises are more consistent with severe beatings than anything arising from this staged accident. Moreover, the corpses are riddled with bullets. The archbishop has been shot in the face. More accurate stories start leaking. Later confirmed by witnesses. After the rally, the three men were carted off to an army barracks, where they were beaten almost to death. Then, some really executed. And the most potent rumor of all. It was Idi Amin, who pulled the trigger personally on the archbishop. Firing the fatal shot. For many ugandans, certainly in the deeply Christian south, the murder of their religious leader is beyond the pale. And that it could come at the direct hand of their own president. Archbishop janani luam will swiftly become a martyr. In present day Uganda, February the 16th is a national day of commemoration. There is a statue dedicated in his honor at London's Westminster Abbey. His death, as a galvanizing influence. There are international boycotts. The U.S. ditches Ugandan coffee and stops supplying the country with oil. Dissident groups abroad are emboldened, and in Tanzania, the Ugandan exiles start to coalesce. Around a far more unified political group, the Uganda national liberation front bizarrely, in 1977. Amin is appointed to the UN human rights commission, which gives him scope for some last ditch moral grandstanding. Big daddy offers to go and kick the bows out of South Africa, which gets a few laughs. He offers his commiserations to Richard Nixon of a Watergate, which gets a few more. In June 1977, there's a sudden panic in the UK. As a mean declared that he is going to drop in on the queen's silver jubilee celebrations. Extraordinary measures are taken to head him off at the airports. Virtually every department sent representatives to a committee for getting rid of him. There were rules of engagement for the army on who they could fire at if he actually landed somewhere. There were rules for what happened if he came in on a commercial airliner. It tied up dozens and dozens of civil servants for about three months. And of course, he never turned up at all. The whole thing was a wind up from the start quite clearly. I mean, as ever, it's just toying with his old foe. He rides it out again. Just. It's right around that time that there's a frost in Brazil, which kills the coffee crop, which sends the price of coffee globally through the roof and which means that in 1977 and 1978, Ugandan coffee farmers and coffee marketing boards enjoy a huge, huge windfall. The Ugandan economy pulled itself out of the recessions of the early 70s and large part because of the successes of the coffee industry in those days a means still has friends. The Eastern Bloc, Arab states continue to supply money and arms. Cuba opens up an embassy in Kampala. But while cash continues to be diverted for military purposes, Uganda is in a sorry state. Financing the army has come at the expense of the nation's education system. Its transport, its infrastructure. Throw in the collapse of the business class, following the Asian expulsion, and Uganda is falling apart. By this point, Amin is said by some to be a functioning alcoholic. Certainly he is a bloated figure, sitting around drinking creme de cacao and nursing bouts of gout. Another rumor puts his crazed mental state down to syphilis. There is one way to revitalize Uganda to rally the people to test his armies metal to relaunch himself, but that is to start a war. This episode is brought to you by CVS.

Bob was loyal to Amin to the end. And when I interviewed him over the years, he would write about how he thought that Amin was essentially doing the best that he could.

"Might happen in his absence. We're in Singapore. It's January 25th, 1971. The Commonwealth summit is winding down. It's been a tense few days with fervent discussion, especially amongst African leaders. Ian Smith and his supporters have unilaterally declared independence for Rhodesia. Britain has begun supplying arms to the apartheid state of South Africa. For once, a majesty the Queen as head of the Commonwealth is not in attendance. It has been deemed prudent for her to keep away. At a swanky 5 star hotel Uganda goes about his business in his new role as world leader. Discussing policy, giving interviews, smiling, looking relaxed, and why not? Yesterday, he issued a secret order directly to the Uganda army barracks in Ginger. They are to arrest, general Idi Amin. Touching back down in Uganda, a boat he assumes he'll be accompanied by the news that Amin is now in jail. He will have avoided the sordid spectacle of having to get involved personally. But then a phone call. In his absence, general Amin, the staged a military coup. Roberte went off to Singapore in January 1971. We know that he wasn't particularly keen ongoing. He left instructions when he left, apparently, that his defense minister, Idi Amin none of that happened in the end, as we know EDM got the jump on the situation and pulled off the coup before the obote government could affect his arrest. A boat is ordered to arrest Amin is received at the Ginger barracks by a man called sergeant Musa. Like a mean, Musa is a northerner. And like I mean, of the kakwa tribe. Sergeant Musa feels he owes loyalty to a fellow tribesman over the president. So he simply hops into an armored car and drives straight over to the home of his commanding officer to inform him of the plot. General amines spent the day Doc shooting at Lake kyoga, 100 miles away. He returns home to find the excited sergeant waiting for him. Many of the soldiers at Ginger come from the same tribal region. The sergeant tells a mean that they have no intention of following a buddy's orders to arrest their beloved general. Indeed, they've been proactive. They have surrounded the armory and seized the capital's main radio station. They broadcast a message. I've decided to take over power from a button and a headache to our fellow soldier, make a general data. It's less of a coup, more of a confirmation. If there is resistance, a rearguard by a few a bottle loyalists, it doesn't last long. In the confusion radio Uganda forgoes its usual programming to play a pop song on a loop for the rest of the day. My boy lollipop by Jamaican singer really small. A few hours later, boy lollipop himself is riding into town at the wheel of his Jeep, tanks rolling in behind him, soldiers crammed on top, smiling, waving. The streets are lined with cheering crowds. The air is one of relief. The hated of bote has been deposed. Amin takes the radio Uganda himself, assuring with great humility that he is just a soldier. There to hold the fort until there are new, free and fair elections. At 30,000 feet over the Pacific, for Milton a boat, there is a stark realization. He can't go home. Amin's troops have also seized antibe airport. His plane is diverted to Tanzania. The 1971 coup is both preemptive and reactive. It's not planned over a long period of time. It is an attempt by his supporters to prevent the disaster that would occur if I mean was arrested and then subsequently presumably the other officers around him are seeing trouble for themselves in their future as well. You have this little constellation of west Nile in nubian officers who essentially seize power overnight and take over the army. It's worth noting because this is not a bunch of senior soldiers. This is our mean and essentially low ranking soldiers. He doesn't command the support of any of the other senior officers in the Uganda army. Some of whom come from different groups and some of them are southerners. And so when they see his power, this tiny little constellation of officers now find themselves in this incredibly precarious position. Well, they've got they've got to decide what's going to happen. I mean, it's going to be the figurehead. They managed to get some other senior and respected civilian administrators to form a cabinet with our means they kind of again improvising. They have this outward appearance to the world of successful military queue but actually what's happened is a tiny handful of officers have said they've taken over. And within the army itself, there are still thousands of soldiers who don't agree with it and aren't on board. So actually, that signals basically another year of conflict within the Ugandan army itself, which is where the sort of patterns of violence and repression really, really escalate and really kick off. Outside the parliament building, the decorations are still up. It's the tail end of the Christmas season. Someone waves a placard, Amin, our Christ. Idi Amin is Uganda's new savior. There is a general sigh of relief on the part of the public. Making all the right noises as leader Amin throws in some early treats. Freedom of religion, lower taxes, prosperity for all, or not alike. I remember, I remember that people cut down the a banana trees and decorated the military trucks and a soldier as we are friendly in those days. We used to have one radio station and one TV station and the TV was in black and white. On my village, the indigenous people may be two or three people had television. But because the other person who had TV had a daughter whom I had gone to boarding school with, I could go and see. So we saw paretti I saw in me. I saw all these soldiers. I saw the love. I saw the embrace, everything. He assumed sworn in at an outdoor ceremony. I will exercise the function of the head of government of the republic of Uganda, so help me God. He declares, with great solemnity. He seems true to his word. His first move is to release all political prisoners, including the head of the Democratic Party, benediction. The man falsely accused of an attempt on a boat his life. I mean, makes him chief justice. Then, a leading army officer, bigger opera lot, an old rival of amines is released. Alongside a sorted began in dignitaries. A mean dismantled the hated GSU, a bot is security service. He reassures his adoring public. Doctor Abbott will come back to Uganda as a citizen of Uganda, but not as a president of the republic of Uganda, he says the over exit a little. He claims that a raid on a boat his house is uncovered a cache of munitions, rocket launches, the works. From his exile in the Tanzanian city of Dar es Salaam, abuti retorts that all I mean will have turned up is 700 books and my underpants. But a bote is old news..

"Kabako is not going to take this lying down. On May 20th, he gives a boat his government ten days to remove themselves from his kingdom. This is a tricky proposition given that Kampala is the capital of the republic as a whole. The kabaka assembles a personal militia to guard himself, and gives the order to eject a boate and Amin from office. Loyalists set up barricades, roadblocks, they wave machetes. It's as if buganda has declared unilateral independence. But the kabaka has played his hand badly. He comes across as someone so in chaos, not upholding order. About a wastes no time in depicting him as a rogue force. A man leading an armed insurrection against the authority of a legal sovereign state. Neither side is backing down. It's a deadlock. But a bote has one more car to play. Just days later, at a Buddhist behest, a column of armored vehicles, winds its way upon of Kampala's 7 hills. Standing up in the lead Jeep is colonel Idi Amin. Preening like a military commander straight out of central casting. He is on his way to kick out the kabaka by fair means or foul. And if he can't take him alive,.

"It's because he's been busy. To the west of Uganda, the jungles are near impenetrable. These remote wilds lie within the territory of the Democratic Republic of Congo. But they are beyond governance. 2000 miles from Congo's own capital Kinshasa. They become renowned as a high dose. All sorts of people can smash themselves away up the Congo river and the myriad tributaries that spring from deep in the unknown. This is a lawless zone, and always has been. Perilous trips up the river in gunboats, provided the inspiration for Joseph Conrad's 1899 novel, heart of darkness, and its later screen interpretation, removed to the jungles of Vietnam, Apocalypse Now. In the mid 1960s, while the real Vietnam War rages. There are armed men camped out in the wilds of the Congo. For there is trouble brewing in Uganda's neighboring state. The old Belgian Congo under the stewardship of king Leopold was an exercise in the most brutal kind of colonial rule. But since 1960, the nation has been independent. It is now the Democratic Republic of the Congo. The DRC control of this fledgling state has been seized in a coup. By a man named Joseph de zira mobutu. And he's not been shy and continuing king Leopold's butchery. Mobutu has been complicit in the execution by firing squad of Congo's first democratically elected prime minister Patrice lumba. Lumba supporters, meanwhile, have retreated to the jungles to gather an army. The young soldiers rallying to the cause call themselves simbas, lions, and theirs is the Simba rebellion. Among revolutionaries, they are a cause celebre. Even Che Guevara has turned up in the jungle with a cohort of Cuban mercenaries in tow. The Simba's preference for left wing ideology is a turn off for potential backers from the west. With fear of Cold War contagion, the United States and old overloads Belgium have instead, backed mobutu, and the army of the DRC as they hunt down the rebels, pushing deep into the jungle after them, bombing their bases. But the DRC government forces a sloppy. In one incident, they attacked two villages which actually lie across the border in Uganda's west Nile district. Idi Amin's home turf. December rebels need arms and fast. Uganda, which had previously taken a measured approach to the conflict. Now has no qualms about supplying them. In late 1964, alongside the governments of Kenya and Tanzania, they agreed to ship in munitions. Though to avoid international controversy, they will do it off the books. Supplying the weaponry for goods rather than cash. It's an exchange that is ripe for exploitation. Idi Amin and Milton abate are about to become embroiled in an old fashioned political scandal. Imagine a new kind of healthcare that's well located. In the heart of friendship heights. Well timed. With convenient appointments. Were your well treated?

The Congo gold crisis, as it will be known, will threaten to end a means political career before it's even begun. The Congolese goal issue was basically about Milton about a mean using the Uganda army to extract mineral wealth from the eastern Congo for their private enrichment. It was an important episode showing how Amin had kind of instrumentalized military power, bote is increasing the obliged in some sense to bend the knee to a means military ambitions. The new parliament building in Kampala, home of the National Assembly is a striking piece of concrete brutalist architecture. In late 1965, there is a fevered buzz echoing around its cavernous holes. A kabaka yuca MP has brought before the National Assembly, an extraordinary piece of information. Back in February, it is revealed. Colonel Idi Amin opened an account with the Ottoman bank. 24 days later, 340,000 Ugandan shillings were deposited into it. More than a man of his rank can earn in a decade. This detail has been uncovered by the Kenyan authorities. They've just seized an illegal shipment of 75 tons of Chinese military hardware, being transported across their territory to Uganda. Not part of any agreed supply plan. A secret investigation probes further. Insights are corroborated by the Simba military commanders in the Congo. Colonel Idi Amin seemingly with a boat is backing. It's not just pocketed cash from an arms sale. He's built a massive smuggling network. He has been selling on weaponry personally in return for shipments of gold, ivory and coffee. He is effectively a rogue arms dealer. And a rather successful one at that. The president will taste it the second, king Freddy, demands an official inquiry. Armed with its damning conclusion, he declares that a boat is complicit in the scandal, and thus illegitimate as prime minister. Uganda is plunged into a huge political crisis. A boaty appears on concerned. He denies any wrongdoing. Conveniently, he dispatches a mean out of town and takes a break himself. But the kabaka, the president is not going to let this slide. In February 1966, with the body away, the issue is put to the floor of the National Assembly. Presented to the House by the cabaca jaca party, it is called the gold allegations motion. A boat and two of his cabinet ministers are directly implicated in a means scam. It is declared. They must go and go now. On his return to the capital, a bode goes on the offensive. The gold allegation is just a shameless began and plot he claims. He commissions an inquiry of his own, and orders the arrest of 5 of the loyalist ministers. He puts troops on the street. On a row, a bottega is further. On March 3rd, he suspends the constitution and the National Assembly. The next day he declares himself president. The.

"To demonstrate firm leadership about a nose there must be a display of brawn to go with his brains. There is an obvious candidate as his enforcer. In 1964, Idi Amin is promoted to colonel. He is now deputy commander of the Ugandan army. I mean, repays the favor immediately. In January that same year, a Ginger, a place he knows well. There is a mutiny brewing. The soldiers in the barracks there are locked in a wage dispute. They're frustrated too at the pace of transition to African leadership. British troops are on standby in Nairobi, prepared to come to a boat his aid. There is also a company of royal marine commandos waiting on an aircraft carrier in the Indian Ocean, just in case. Calling on aid from the old colonial master would be a humiliation. But it could be necessary, given the circumstances. This is make or break for a bote. For their part, the rebels are even holding the minister of the interior, Felix on armor hostage. They force feed in cornmeal, their standard ration to make a point. They then steal his chauffeur driven Mercedes and drive it drunkenly around the parade ground. This is the first real test for independent Uganda. The way it's portrayed today when a mean steps in, the mutiny does not last long. He persuades the men to return to their billets, peacefully. The soldiers pay demands are met. He even requisitions for them a new set of sprung mattresses, rather than the old boards they were forced to sleep on. A mean it is said is a man to whom they are happy to pledge their loyalty. Official records will show that it was not a straightforward as that. And that British troops were summoned anyway. Perception is everything. There are 450 British soldiers who called the rebellion not Idi Amin. Absolutely. Now, idi min was part of these regiments and he proved himself to be supposedly proved himself to be indispensable to quelling the rebellion. I'm not sure precisely what he did or what his role was. But at the end of the mutiny, what ends up happening is a purging and the government responds to days later by dismissing 700 soldiers from the army, several of whom were subsequently detained. In July, 1967, based on what ED Amin had done about creates a military police force under Idi Amin. And then becomes a boat is right hand man. And so Idi Amin remained untouched. You see, so it's not just that he's being rewarded for his violent acts. It's also that his superiors don't know how to get rid of him or to even tame him because. Well, he's the only one who's managed to get to this point. Idi Amin is the iron fist inside a Butte's velvet glove. There are good combination, an adept if odd couple. He is relatable, but at the same time he's not educated. He doesn't walk the walk of the political and economic elites. Really what helps Idi Amin succeed is a kind of it's been referred to in the literature as a peasant cunning. So he's not intelligent. He's not educated. He's not from the elites. But he is shrewd, and that shrewdness I think is coming from having a sense of how true interact and manage with people who the common people. And certainly does help him succeed. It helps him attract followers. It helps him build a base. After starting out as a humble cook, Idi Amin, a tribesman from the remote northwest, already wheels extraordinary power. It has been a phenomenal ascent for someone from a background such as his. But this is only the beginning. Right now, this partnership with Milton a boaty serves Idi Amin's interests. But who's to say how long the arrangement will bear fruit? The bate had better watch his back. All right, listen, if you're the type of person who's always thinking about business ideas, startup ideas, and always thinking about what's the next side hustle that I could spin up. I got a podcast for you. Listen to my first million on Spotify. My co host Shawn and I, we've each started in Seoul, tens of millions of dollars for the businesses, and every week we spit ball new business ideas. These could be a little side hustles that'll make ten grand a month, or maybe big ideas like a $1 billion idea that you could even start tomorrow. So check it out, look up my first million on Spotify. At the same time as navigating the tricky political terrain in the new independent country, prime minister Abbott needs to keep the burgundian royal family on side. Uganda, if you remember, was the ancient kingdom around which the British formed Uganda. The burgundian monarchs that Caracas still carry considerable influence in the countries affairs. The current kabaka, to give him his full name, is sir Edward Frederick William, David wallow gambe, mutebi Luang gula, mutesa the second. Mates at the second for short, or king Freddy, as the British call him. Which is the second is an erudite fellow. A graduate of modern college Cambridge. He's an honorary captain in the grenadier guards, as well as the grand and official channeler of the power of the sun. The queen termite and father of all twins. Quite the array of titles and stylings. It was with the cooperation of mates of the second's father that the British were able to establish to protect in the first place. In return, the British granted buganda certain privileges. But with the arrival of Ugandan independence, this old favoritism no longer applies. The impact of British colonial rule is to draw these very different very diverse linguistic ethnic communities together, more tightly than ever before. It's not that connections didn't exist between them. I think we always want to be careful. We don't want to treat these groups as too static. But what the British colonial project does is it draws new borders and boundaries around these groups of people. And it implants new kinds of institutions onto them. And draws them into these institutions. In the Ugandan case, it's the big powerful stratified kingdoms of the south, who are overwhelmingly the people that the British colonial project collaborates with the vegan are almost benefiting in some ways from the establishment of Uganda. Its name is named after their kingdom. They end up in this very dominant position. This big, powerful, southern kingdom. And therein lies a Buddhist problem. The kabaka conducts himself as if he were king of Uganda as a whole. He's not slow to speak his mind. In 1953, king Freddie was even exiled by the British for a couple of years. After pushing for greater burgundian autonomy. For a small faith fellow is rather self important. A Queen Elizabeth II's coronation at Westminster Abbey. He caused the royal stink at being placed behind the Queen of Tonga and the sultan of Zanzibar in the regal pecking order. Though he's made up for its sense. At the Ugandan independence ceremony in October 1962,.

"People are now free. Doctor Marc Leopold, I don't think there was very much choice. I think the British certainly in Africa had not really prepared for decolonization. The fact that many of the officers in the army resigned and left the KAR rather than getting involved in the transition to independence. They quite clearly had never thought about it. The idea that Africans might rule themselves had not really occurred to certainly the military side of the operation. And then suddenly their faced with a depleted Britain dependent on U.S. aid and the Americans effectively telling Britain to give up the empire. It was in a sense hurried and unprepared for. And in another sense it was far too late and should have been done long before. It certainly would be difficult to justify saying Britain should have kept its African empire longer in order to educate the natives into how to run their country, which was the position taken by some of the British colonial officers at the time. But it certainly true that it was rushed and messy affair. Probably because the people who were doing it didn't want to do it and had been forced into it. The army is now under Ugandan control, albeit with a rump of British officers still entrenched in senior positions. Idi Amin has been divested of the shackles of the colonial military hierarchy. He becomes a captain. In November 1963, he's promoted to major. A year after independence Uganda declares itself a full republic. Though it maintains its Commonwealth membership and keeps the queen as head of state. In name, at least. Despite the optimism, there are evident growing pains in this new independent nation. The new Ugandan leader Milton a boate wants to pursue a policy of africanization. This means repatriating government into Ugandan hands. But it's not running entirely smoothly. Professor Marian mufti. The gravity of how uneven economic and political development had been. In the Ugandan British colony hits home only after the British depart. And the British justified that to themselves by saying, hey, African nationalism is on the rise, and we are giving Africa back to the Africans and we're doing them a good turn so to speak. And let them fend for themselves now. They think they can rule themselves better than we ever did. So let them have it. A polite is only just taken office, but already his position is precarious. It's no surprise that his government is finding independence a challenge. In the absence of the imposed order of colonialism, there is no external force to hold this artificial construct, the republic of Uganda together. Take the west Nile, the region from whence Amin hills. It was only added to colonial Uganda in 1912. It had formerly been part of the Belgian Congo, then the Sudan. The frontiers of the Ugandan protectorate were not finalized until 1926. The country in its present shape has been around for barely 30 years. A mere blip. Of course, the Ugandan people have a shared historical experience. But viewing the peoples of East Africa through a narrow colonial lens is to ignore thousands of years of their story. Before the British arrived, the land we call Uganda was a patchwork quilt of independent kingdoms, as well as independent tribal areas. There have been fierce rivalries sometimes armed conflicts between bogan and bonjoro. Between the west Nile tribes on one side and the Lange and the chole on the other. A few mere decades of British rule were never going to put a stop to that. This new arrangement, Uganda, it feels as one commentator puts it more like an arranged marriage than a genuine love match. But his power relies on his ability to balance out different tribal interests. Uganda is now being run according to a federal system. This means regional voices and political groupings are very significant. The problem in Uganda, like in many other ex colonies is that 70% of the population is occupied in the rural sector. However, they generate only 20% of the growth. Well, that's just problematic. It's problematic well, because how do you generate the kind of economic growth that is required for a ex colony to thrive once the colonial master has removed all of its patronage and removed the defensive capacity of the colony. What you've left behind are simmering identities, people who dislike each other, tremendously. And an economic sector that has been ravaged. About his barely gotten his feet under the desk, but already there are grumblings. As there are elsewhere within the former East African colonies, not least in military circles. We're generally agreed that the colonial project itself brings all kinds of problems and creates all kinds of challenges and has a real negative side at the same time. The speed with which colonialism ends, the process of decolonization is rapid. Uganda has only been a protectorate for some decades. I think abandonment is actually a very useful term to have in mind here, because there is an extent to which this is abandoned. This is this is Britain giving up on a project that had just started in many ways for some of these countries. And whatever the moral questions around it, and these are very important. The long-term effects on nation and state building are undeniably going to be ones that have a damaging effect because you've got institutions that have barely existed for very long. You've got militaries that have only just been formed within which there's only a handful of trained officers that have until now been dominated by British officers who are now gone. So you have extremely unprepared institutions. And this is definitely the case in Uganda..

"Of a multitude of children by 6 official wives, plus assorted mistresses. The number of his offspring is put to conservatively at 35. But his possibly as many as 60. His personal and professional lives are going swimmingly. He is, as one of his army sponsors puts it, an incredible person, who certainly is not mad. Very shrewd, very cunning and a born leader. It's quite a citation. But in the army, there is a glass ceiling. Idi Amin has maximized his potential. He has risen as far as a black African can get within the colonial military structure. He can now progress no further. It will take a fundamental shift in the status quo to change that reality. Before long, that's exactly what will happen..

"More than happy to run with this. At one point, his mom had gotten involved with one particular man in the military and she was older than him. He was, I think, ten, 15 years younger, and so his colleagues, the boyfriend's colleagues in the military started to tease him and say, you're messing around with an older woman. So eventually, he decided that it was in his best interest to leave her because he couldn't handle the blows to his masculinity. And so the rumor that has become a social fact is that a mean smother put some sort of a spell on him and or poisoned him and he died shortly thereafter, so it was, you know, her getting the last word. And so as incidents like this occurred, she gained more and more fame. But I mean, I think definitely did embrace this idea that he came from a powerful background and that his mother had these important powers. Being accused of being a witch sounds like a really dreadful thing from our point of view, but it's also an assertion of power of having access to powerful forces of being able to hurt or help people as he wanted to encourage this kind of speculation is something that increased his strength and the perception of his powers. Aisha is also said to be a purveyor of a west Nile drug, yakan, or lions water. It's a powerful hallucinogen. Later, Idi Amin will be rumored to imbibe it before his big speeches. Others will claim she is a prostitute, or at least a loose woman. In fact, when ayesha's son is born, many dispute the identity of his father. She can only prove the paternity of the newborn, they say, if she undergoes an ancient ritual. She must leave her baby alone on the slopes of mount Nero for four days and nights. Survive, and he is Andreas legitimate offspring. The infant Idi Amin so the story goes endures the ordeal. Not only that, he saved by, a mythical 7 headed serpent. Idi Amin will never forget his roots, and the mysticism of his people. He would always identify with the cacao. He bears their tribal marking, three vertical cuts behind the eyes. The signature one 11s. And he will also identify with his father's religion. According to legend, he will later attend an Islamic school in the nearby city of aroa. Possibly around 1941. He will be acclaimed for reciting koranic verse. It certainly fits a later narrative. I mean enjoyed telling his life story, he told it differently depending on who he was talking to. He inflated or compressed parts of it. He spoke luganda with some considerable facility, which suggests that he did, in fact, spend quite a lot of time around Kampala, even if he wasn't born there. So there's a real value for a mean in telling his story differently depending on who he was talking to and whose loyalty he wished to command in some sense. As a youngster Amin tends to the family goats. He takes ditches good honest work. Though he also has a reputation as a fighter, a bit of a bully. Within Uganda, male west Nile is of a reputation for their stubbornness, their size, a certain macho swagger. Their physical strength. Prejudice towards them is rife. They regarded by southerners as course uncouth. The north is extremely violent. These are people who settle scores by violence. These are people who exact revenge. Now I am not passing judgment on these northern tribes. I'm just saying that was the way of life. And that was perhaps embedded in their social norms. That's the environment that he grows up in. The men in these parts have had to learn to be tough to know how to fight. For throughout history, with the Arab slavers lurking, they're very survival has depended on it. There is, however, a way for such men to turn the hardship they've endured to their advantage. With his particular background, Idi Amin is an ideal candidate for the colonial army. When he joins up, a man will be putting his life on a very different track. One that will lead ultimately to unfettered power. Who knows where Idi Amin would have ended up? Had he never joined the Ugandan military? But, after a chance encountering Kampala, that's just the cause that history will take. It's the late 1930s. By this time it seems Idi Amin has followed his mother south to the ancient kingdom of Uganda. Here, as young as possibly 12, Amin becomes an indentured laborer on an Asian owned sugar plantation. The indignity of the work and the ethnicity of the owners will sow a long held grievance. How long he works on the plantation, we do not know. First reports over the Amiens of bona FIDE young man aged around 18 to 20, find him in more rarefied surroundings, as a coat check attendant at Kampala's imperial hotel. In 1946, while going about his business there, it is said, I mean, comes to the attention of a passing British Army officer. This officer can't help but be drawn to the young man's sense of discipline, and a sheer physical presence. I mean, like barely speak a word of English, but he declares on the spot that he'd like to join the king's African rifles. The officer moles it over. Why not? He's just the sort of chapter regiment is looking for. Especially if he doesn't mind getting his hands dirty. I think recruitment was very, very informal. It wasn't a question of filling in forms and passing an entrance exam. You had to be tall and muscular and Amin was above all else tall and muscular. Throughout the colonial era, there was these marshal myths that persons from the north of the country were taller, beefier, brawnier, fiercer, and so therefore they would make better soldiers. And so there was a deliberate recruitment strategy going way back to the beginning of the king's African rifles that tried to recruit men into the army who would be natural warriors. There were a lot of stereotypical practices that were put into place to encourage men from the north to be even more manly if that's possible. So lots of sporting events and very violent brutal types of competitions to try and cultivate this kind of violent masculinity that would then feed into the kind of military exploits that the colonial government needed them to engage in. Idi Amin has worked his ticket. He's told to hop on board the truck. And so begins our means life in the army. It's not an illustrious start. Amin begins at the emperor of barracks as a laundry worker, then a cook. I don't think he was even trying to prove himself. He just comes from a very, very poor background. And I think his poverty becomes almost an incentive to try and climb up their ranks. Social ranks. And somehow he manages to prove himself to his superiors in the British Army and climb up the ranks, slowly and steadily, at which point.

"Hurricane ida crumpled a major transmission tower. That survived katrina sixteen years ago building infrastructure. That strong enough is hard when the target keeps moving because storms are getting stronger energy consultant alison silverstein says utilities and their regulators can take planning cues from murphy's law. We need to assume that everything possible that could go wrong is going to go wrong. Simultaneously and murphy is always gonna win. President biden's climate plan includes a much bigger role for electricity electric cars. For example cutting carbon footprint says easier with electricity from emission free sources like wind solar and nuclear. But even those have to stand up to extreme weather putting wires underground may seem obvious but engineering professor destiny. Knock at carnegie mellon university says that won't always work in hurricane country where you might have under grounded. The lines to protect them from wind putting them underground makes them more susceptible to flooding knock. Says it's never just one thing that's going to keep the lights. On energy experts. We interviewed agree on a few basic ideas though. They say the grid should be more decentralized so the whole thing doesn't shut down at once. More generation out in communities such as solar power would accomplish that but new orleans utility energy has resisted calls for just that to the frustration of local activists at mit engineering professors. Or up. a mean says not all the fixes are technical. He says power companies also need to become more agile and do more when responding to storms the fact that some utilities are not able to sort of respond immediately is also another kind of failure which is perhaps as drastic as the infrastructure. Failures is assuming outages will happen. Amin says utilities should focus more on dispatching generators even before a storm to make sure important facilities and vulnerable populations get electricity restored as soon as possible. All this cost money that usually ends up in utility bills. Congress is working on major funding through infrastructure bills. That could address some of these issues. There also focused on president. Biden's climate goals including zeroing out greenhouse gas emissions from the power sector by twenty thirty five.

I don't want people's prices to go up at home But somewhere along the path. Somebody's making too much money.

He's had been a guest and commentator amy. Tv shows podcasts. Magazines m practices at the concept of a cardiac longevity is very unpracticed in michigan. Welcome to the show joe. Thank you so much excited to share with the audience. Yeah so i wanted to kind of give out with some background on you. And and how you got into the space because you've kind of gone down a different role than maybe stanford medicine and things teaches. Unfortunately not because of any time in the in the slammer or any problems with my license in a somewhat thoughtful various er- pigeon Course but i grew up in detroit michigan Talking now from the suburb in detroit michigan attended university in ann arbor. Michigan graduated top of my class medical school. But i knew from about a swallow wanted to be a heart moved to dallas moved to kansas city out and training with the best skills and particularly treating heart attacks with angioplasty instead. You have some wonderfully people from australia. New zealand in the my mentor in kansas city was from all actually a dislike from new zealand allah but when visit i'll be of the difference between the do another very different entry but nineteen ninety way before you were born. I imagine or at least run it. I join back in detroit. Michigan big practice. And i was the guy running a night treating sick people coronary Cardiac cath lab artists. But i was even back then very interested in the other part the About our of health which is prevention nutrition. Lifestyles sleep stress. Nutraceutical supplements the whole thing. Much more light perhaps naturopathy and chiropractic. So i was always reading on my own incorporating little tidbits been using coenzyme q ten of people for thirty years my college or and then i'll percolating along as very happy guy got a chance to look down to. The university mentioned developed a preventive cardiology program. But i knew that there was something else that i really had an energy for something else. I mean that was doing wonderful. Things are day is the same thing every day. When wonderful big over i went back to university in two thousand twelve a whole year doing a university based courses integrative cardiology natural gas and pretty much nutrition thing adnan stunning that for decades. But i didn't know all the nutraceutical isn't about chemistry testing and the epa genetics and the protonix and we can use fancy words. I graduated and of course. I say in traditional practice but i ultimately with some thought took a big breath five years ago and says you know what i've done enough cath lab emergencies. That mouse running three hassles on the weekend alone. A great practice. I one focus on prevention and i looked around the country. I could barely find in the united states preventive cardiology practice. That was not attuned to only prescription. Drugs are printing preventive cardiology practices more precision more prescription. I wanted to about more health lifestyle disease reversal. I gleaned from various people what i could kinda created a model. I left the insurance system. You wanna have a sleepless night. As a physician who's always had a whole room full of baylor's and medicare and blue cross as we call in the united states and others and tell people in the city of detroit that is not beverly hills los angeles by a reasonably prosperous busy city with auto industry. But i don't take insurance. I can't even take your insurance them out of the system and launched in five years ago and yes. There's always challenges. My tears thought that maybe. I did. Have alcohol rounds. Drug problem slices. Is he doing all as they didn't understand. It has been the best decision. I don't think would have been as meaningful if i didn't pay the price. All those years of doing traditional medicine I'm respected because know what heart catheterization angioplasty bypass Medications use them when needed by I'm very much dedicate myself as upstream cardiologists. I'm the salmon trying to go upstream. Everybody else is going the other direction. But there's a lot of people out there and you know. I i'm sure for practice that are looking or a different path. They're just tired and they feel tired too many drugs too. Many ten minute appointments with dr the game now. It's a good nurse or a physician since i've provided alternative of time education a different approach. And it's so gratifying. Amin that i'm sixty one years old. I don't know what the word retires.

The difference between a MD and DO Physician with Pediatrician Mona Amin

"You share a little bit about your background and the work that you do. as a pediatrician. Yes so i have been. A general pediatrician for five years. Going on six years. Always in private practice. I've worked in new york city. And now i'm in florida and i love being. A general pediatrician. My goal as an outpatient pediatrician is to help parents downstream and downstream meaning before problems arise before they get issues. I wanna talk about things in the first five years right and for me. It's healthy sleep habits. It's healthy eating habits a positive body image and also approach stress so my platform really tries to look at all of those things. Obviously that's why we're gonna be talking about baby led weaning because i love that concept for creating good eating habits. So that's kind of my background. I m a. Do physician so not. Many people know the difference between md's and so both of us go through the undergraduate work medical school but dio medical school or osteopathic medical school in the united states. We learn the whole body so when we're learning about headaches were also learning about environmental triggers. We're learning about nutrition. We're learning about everything related to a system issue or a problem. And i love the way that we were trained so everything is a whole body system will have we thought about the impacts food can have or the environment or stress to a problem. So it's what we call that whole mind body spirit medicine which i love item partial to deals mainly because i m one when i say that i do seek out does it doesn't mean that i am against. Md's my own husband is an amazing md. But i just find that. The philosophy makes a lot of sense to me especially in general pediatrics and outpatient. They just tend to be more welcoming. The bedside manner is more like this. It's just i love it. So of course i m once. I'm going to be talking like this. But that's basically the difference. And i think that's important for parents to hear a lot of our audiences like some of them are still pregnant like the learning everything they can about babies etc and. I don't think they realize that you have the option. When you're choosing a pediatrician to also consider working with the. Do so. i'm so glad that i connected with you. Because i think you could just tell again like from your instagram and your online persona which is so real like it is a little bit different. I think than what a lot of people would expect from your traditional pediatrician. Yeah and i find that a lot of md's again. This is not empty bashing this is just my understanding of my colleagues. Md's are amazing but they tend to fall into a very will have to do this a certain way versus looking at big picture when that goes pediatrics. Like baby led weaning for example. Right like winning has been around for decades and also in other countries and the ap had to treat a statement saying. Hey okay we support it. If this better the other went so many other countries have been doing it. So i find that a lot of the organizations needs to kind of come into the modern sense of parenting and say okay. What can we do. How can we do this in a safe way. How can we educate parents on safe. Sleep how can we educate parents on eating with baby led weaning so that it meets their desires versus okay. You can't do this. This has never been done before. Because parenting is evolving and we need to evolve with it.

Tips on Breaking Into the Esports Industry w/ESN Editor Justin Amin

"It's just it's Ben here for awhile again, like I said, he started as an intern and now he's really in charge of everything outside of the podcasts, all the articles, all the things that go on that East sports network insight and he's been getting great about it. So that's a little brief about how you broke into the sports industry but just to you, you know as we talk about how to get in does insurance industry that a lot of people wanna be a part of what we're yours started steps like into East sports, and how's it developed over the last year? Well, my starting steps. I started I feel like as the average college student I only graduated college early this year by the way. So I was starting my job while still in college and I think that's a big part for terms of getting internships I started as a college student in their late junior early senior level. Looking into opportunities trying to see what I could find so I did a lot of job hunting a lot of networking. Thanks to collegiate offenses will. So I think. The very start of all of this is taking your own initiative in. Really taking the time to search through all the endless things that are out there. Definitely yeah heart agree on starting the job before you leave school beyond internships it's a great opportunity but just networking in general, you can have a lot of fakes responded to you like Hey I'm a student who wants to work at sports. People are so used to get a weird product pitches and awkward business relations like I'd say like leak did or. Email that they usually ignore those somebody reaches I was just like Hey I'm interested alert about sports usually the response for deposits that networking early starting with looking at opportunities early is really crucial break in this industry. 'cause you can do it straight out of school like edgy levels effect, but there's not even really require for college degree. We're GONNA get into what? Role College plays in the eastwards later on in the show. But I had a very similar experience and thirties or it's right after graduating school at already started doing a little bit of working as worth while I was in school started writing right afterwards and then. Pretty. quickly, nobody ever asked if I had a college degree I did have one but nobody ever really asked in these sports and Once you get some articles published, the ball starts rolling. You can take those articles to another place and just keep going. That's Kinda mind developed justice. You've had a lot more consistent of a career than my first year was I worked for eight companies by I. Did hear that on a previous podcast. You're just going back and forth between all sorts. Yet it was break the game started that I went to Action Ease for its then sport techy hotspot spahis or it's a radio station based in Europe for a second disrupt gaming an or sixteen were their podcast. Football Post. And then hots Bondar say one I. Don't know it was a a whirlwind and I actually do recommend to people break into eastwards to be a freelancer because I wasn't full time for any of those companies and allowed me to be Pretty Nimble in Okay I've worked with these people for a little while like what they're doing here I'm GonNa, go work here I'm going to go take this other opportunity and so I do recommend that to a lot of students that being a freelancer especially if you still have your parents. health insurance to fall back on. It is the biggest drawback of being a freelancer that you don't have health insurance or you don't have the benefits that come with it, and if you have your parents health insurance, actually you get that safety blanket right out of school, and you also get the flexibility to start with a bunch of different schools so as I recommend for sure. Share. A lot of options and it gives you more of your own scheduling and timing pacing. You can choose when you're ready to work. Definitely. But justice took a different path like I. said, there's no one clear path he started with these forces at work and he still works at sports that honestly that consistency is pretty nice and you're allowed to advance through company and learn a lot more when you're in a consistent environment, what's been your favorite part of working for sports network over the years? I think my favorite part and part of it is lucky that we're a small company and one of the leaders here is that I get to choose the WE WANNA run. Like If we want to cover more league of legends content this week maybe because we'll actually do this week world's drawings everything, but I get to be able to choose and shift the focus of where we need to be and where I think we need to improve sometimes it's little more overwatch content. Sometimes, we need to cut the slack and. Out Rainbow six for a little bit but. A lot of options and I like being able to. Help influence lead the company.

Beware of Sex Trafficking Rings - They Are Everywhere

"I want to say something about you talking about things going on the world just how crazy this is. For those who don't know, Roelant is like a child she's like one of our other kids and. Roelant posted on her social media story today. And I just after read it because it to me is like holy cow. This was what she said. And, this was sent from a friend of hers. My sorority sister a GAL named courtney who lives in Nashville has a friend who took a mint from her uber driver the other night it was wrapped up just like a white lifesaver. She started to feel weird. So she text her mom she woke up in a warehouse close to the Nashville. Airport in a sex trafficking ring. Her iphone location was shared with her mother. So the police were able to track her. The Girls Okay and And she's the one who told Courtney what happened so this isn't some friend of a friend of a friend bs this horrific and scary stuff happen. Don't take minutes even if they're wrapped in cellophane as they had as if they hadn't been touched and just don't take anything and. Don't be in an uber by yourself. You know. Thank God this girl is okay physically I'm sure emotionally. Amin. Going, to take a long time for her to heal from this, but how scary is that? It's crazy. It's crazy. I mean in Nashville because people think Oh, you're in Nashville you know it's very say fits. Your small town still. That to me. Is So. Scary. But the good thing was was that the police rebelled attract her because she shared locations with her mother, which is something that our kids have fought back on nosy. You just want to know where I M, etc.. I hope for you parents that are listening that you share this story with with your kids. To know that it's not about being nosy it's about keeping them safe and if your kid out here, if you're a teenager if you're a young adult share your location with someone. So that somebody knows where you are and can get to because folks. Delicious. Be honest this probably saved this girl's life. Because her mother was able to get the police the information to track her phone. It's it's just crazy and and you know I do have you know the locations of our children? And of you and you know my mother and we do all know where each other we're. We're all located. So you know I mean it helps me to sleep at night knowing that I can track and you know if Savannah is out traveling if she even though even those are stuff is booked privately and you know with a car service literally when she they pull up, she takes a picture of the tag on the car. and. She sends me the picture of that and then she puts her location to where I can track it as she's literally going down the highway. So we do stay on top of it as much as we can. But for those of you who are not who don't maybe have a parent or someone that you're sharing your location with take your own safety into your hands. Do not be foolish. Do not be stupid. It's just right. You got one life. Yeah, and it's you know I think we get. We get very comfortable. You know because we're like our we're not in Atlanta or Miami or la where you know these things happen in other places this is right here. I mean you're talking about twenty minutes from where I lay ahead at. A sex trafficking ring twenty minutes from where match children live that to me is scary and the only way that we're going to stop this is we have to continue talking about it. We have to be vigilant and take care of. Each other

"Amina welcome to the show man. So happy to have you. Thank you for having me congratulations on your most recent album limbaugh. How did you approach thinking about creating this album? Is the follow too good for you. I just started about the word legacy a lot more when meeting them both. So I wanted to make something that wasn't just super current to the times of a more. A. Ten years down on. About the title limbo. What does that mean? A lot of people thought it was speaking to the Times that we're in because I know that we're all currently in the. Title for a good year and a half for me I felt like I was stuck between two places from a young man to over. Kind of just figuring it out personally. But I definitely think people are connected with the project although I will say the day drive limbo twitter had a strong reaction to one track in particular becky. In attract, you talk about an interracial relationship with a white girl I kinda the challenges there was also within your family. There are a lot of folks who were kind of bothered by the song I'm curious like did you expect any of the response that you? I think me and my boys off knew that that was going to happen to immediately went into thinking was an ode to White One stories more. So about a black important Oregon stories is about me and middle school it completely woke me up to the Society of Portland what it's like growing up there and and how you look at truth. So I didn't really WANNA. Like shy away from that. You know there's a lot going on in Portland right now just between the uprisings and federal agents snatching protesters off the streets I visited Portland before I got a lot of stairs understand why? What are you making sense of what do you think of what's going on your city right now I'm a bit bitter sweet on it and I said that multiple times because as a black person going important organ, we never felt welcomed. We never felt like the city cater to us more than the scene is a liberal city but has so much racism behind the feds. And the police have so much work to do but the community of Portland, the people protesting and have a lot of work to do as well. People who are on the front lines are the same people kicking out black families out of their neighborhoods and gentrifying held out of these neighborhoods. So they're kicking the black family out but have a black lives matter sign on. Yeah I mean and it's not just Portland is mini CDs across the country that had to kind of do that working and wrecking live the fact that like this isn't something that just kind of crept up out of nowhere I wanNA. Come back to the album of bit. You share how the Becky was something you were thinking about in middle school you know that the subject matter there is there a track on the album that you kind of most cashes where you are right now the track burden? Really shows you where I'm at mentally I just kind of talk about my friends my life would I've been up to.

Travel to Tbilisi and Eastern Georgia

"The traveler. I'm your host Chris. Christensen let's talk about Georgia. I like to welcome back to the show. Tomo and Mexi from food FUN TRAVEL DOT COM who've come to talk to us about the Republic of Georgia's we're gonNA start with intimacy and head east. Tomo it makes me welcome back to the show. Hey thanks as always glad to be on the shore tomorrow makes me Williams. I didn't say your last name. Yes that's not married since we love to see you thank you. I didn't mention that I think because I not used to referring you'd as the same last name and someone makes me. We're on the show once previously in Philippines wherever the Yucatan Mexico you could join. That's right that's right. The more recent episode we have on the Yucatan merita excellent will. Why are we talking about the Republic of Georgia well? We actually moved to Tbilisi about a year ago. It's our third time living here the second time where here. We got married here a few months after that we decided we actually wanted to live here permanently and now we do so. We used to live in Merida Mexico for a while. That's why we talked to you about that a couple of years ago and now we live Tbilisi so when you say permanently. This is permanently from the context of a travel blogger which means more than a couple of months. I think this is more permanent than decisions. Cassia already almost a year and we've got no intention of leaving at this point. And why should someone else come to the Republic of Georgia? I would say the main draw here is firstly. It's quite undiscovered. It's a little bit out of the way for most travelers but it's beginning a huge amount of press internationally recently especially because of the food and the wine. It is the birthplace of wine according to the most recent archaeological evidence. And but yeah and that's eight thousand years old eight thousand years ago. They found pottery stained with wine from eight thousand years ago so at a definitive evidence that it was actually going on. People were making wine and drinking wine interesting. And what kind of itenerary are you going to recommend for US? So obviously there will be some wine to try but there's also a lot of history here because we're right in the e east-meets-west sort of area. We are nestled between the Caspian Sea and Black Sea with Russia to the north and Turkey to the South West and on Mesnier and Azerbaijan to the south and the east. So there's been a huge influence of all these different coaches for the itinerary. We're GONNA start off in the capital Tiblisi and it is quite a big city with a lot of history so this was founded in the fifth century. Ad. So it has been around for a long time. There's lots of different things to see when you fly in on the first day the flights that come in from the US and via Turkey or quite early. Morning arrivals cold yes. So we'd say the first day that you'RE GONNA be here. It's probably going to be a solid half day of recovering and sleeping and then you have like a half day in the afternoon to go out and see some things and then enjoy the evening and then have a secondary Tiblisi. It's quite a fun city and there's a lot to do here day. Three we'd be heading east towards Kakheti. Which is the primary Wine Region? But of course it's also a very historic region that changed hands between different cultures the Persians Arabs. And of course the Jordan's at the moment firstly we'd be heading to the hill town. Well it's a mountain town of Cigna guy the city of La City of love actually a town. But it's very beautiful nestled on a little hilltop with views down the valley and towards the Caucasus Mountains in the distance the next day staying in the wine region and moving too quickly which is right down in the valley. It's like a very central part of the wine region down there where the river valley runs through where the river runs through the Amazon Valley is the name of the valley and then day five heading north through the valley towards to Lavi which is the capital of Kakheti region. Kakheti actually used to be an independent state for a while as well with separate from Georgia. Now it's integrated with Georgia Day six. We'll be heading back towards Tiblisi through Tiblisi. And then there's a number of important historic sites just north of Tiblisi which include the ancient capital before Tiblisi. Which is called mosquito and also hopeless. Which is an ancient cave town slightly to the west of mosquito and also towards. Gori which was the birthplace of Stalin. And this will wind in that area for people who are real wine lovers. You can have some different wine region. They different groups in different regions. Definitely thinks to explore and then heading back on the seventh day towards Tbilisi so that people can catch they're flying out or if people flying out of Kutaisi. Which is the other main airport then heading from gory towards Kutaisi. Which is about a three hour drive so this couple of flexible options bad us the refinery excellent and we'll go back through that in more detail so before we get into that we should say that although it may be undiscovered it's not undiscovered on amateur travellers to other episodes of the first one at least ten years ago and the second one more recently and so we'll put links to those in the show notes and Tillman makes me have listened to the most recent one of those two so some of the things that are mentioned in there they may skip over. We'll see how that works for time but you started us in Tiblisi. Yeah so let's talk about. Maybe doing a walking tour covers some of the attractions. A few of these mentioned in the previous episode. But it's definitely worth mentioning a few of them again just briefly so that people get a general feel for it. Yes I mean generally in Tiblisi. It's this really vibrant city to visit. You can go out almost any time of day or night. And they'll be people out and about doing stuff in a good wholesome way. There's like restaurants that are our opinion as Baas. The repin sort of dining really is a little bit anytime. A food and wine is exceptionally important. Culturally he'll and as I mentioned earlier. It is surrounded by all of these really strong cultures. But when you actually come to Georgia and come to Tbilisi you'll realize just how unique the culture is here as well so there are definitely influences from those other places but it is very very strongly George into the core. They have their own alphabet one of the unique alphabets of the world. Always done that. Okay so some people say that has some similarity to Amin but when you look at it really doesn't lie. The symbols of very very different says a completely unique alphabet and lots of unique words and the way people pronounce stuff tight is one of the hardest languages to learn. For sure will. In one of the things I've always had trouble with with Georgia in on the amateur travellers site is I take every country and I- lump it into a continent and Georgia. I have placed in Europe. But you look at a map and it looks like I don't know what I'm talking about. Yeah exactly I think Georgia in particular would consider themselves Europe and I think visiting. Here's a country. I also would just architecturally and culturally. I would consider it Europe as well definitely like Eastern Europe. But as you said if you look on a map would probably consider it to be Asia. I sometimes have a hard time putting my time zones in I can never find Tiblisi in a time when I'm changing from different countries. It's because it's always like nestled in Asia. But I think I would definitely say Europe and if we head straight south would get to Armenia Iran and Iraq and so Armenia. I would also be one of those that I would put in Europe culturally but Iran Iraq. I was certainly not Oshawa. John is just to the east and Turkeys just to the West. But it's the usual part of Turkey's eight is one of those as you say regions where cultures meet. Yes and I think at least from that perspective. It's because of the Orthodox religion right the Docs Christianity. I founded in Armenia in the fourth century or late third century century earlier than that. Armenia was the first Christian nation the first nation where Christianity became the main religion so it predates Rome becoming Christian in the three hundreds in Georgia was the second country they took on not too long after that. The estimate is somewhere between three nine three twenty six. Ad Different people have different opinions. And that was when Georgia took on the Orthodox religion poorly Al mentioned a little bit about that when we talk about some of the important attractions that relate to that a bit later on.

"Amin Bernie admits it Warren doesn't quite admit it but it's obviously true and she even gets beat up by the left on on her denial of these claims but it's gonna be interesting I five thirty eight dot com released their model of of the entire primary again like people like to beat up on polls but you look at the accuracy of of the poll I mean of the national election they project they projected it almost exactly as far as the popular vote was which is what they were projecting some of the states they missed on and a lot of these forecasters did miss on that but the idea that that polls are worthless is largely a myth I mean a great you know this the polls got about forty five forty six states right the in the popular vote they got it right you know Donald Trump surprised in certain areas in in you know to two point of all reporting shows that even their internal a poll showed that they were not gonna win some of those races and they did so it's not always perfect but it does give you a good idea this is really a perfect though because the polling in primaries and caucuses he's much less reliable than general election polling is harder to do especially a caucus I mean if that what goes on in Iowa where it was in a room trying to convince each other is such a different process you it's really hard to do that and then everything has an effect on everything that comes after it so it you know in Iowa you might say okay Joe Biden's got a thirty percent chance to win Iowa well if he wins Iowa his chances might go from twenty percent in New Hampshire to forty percent in New Hampshire everything whatever happens in I was going to affect all these other races so to try to project all of these things in a row is basically an impossible task and you should know going in that these things can't be perfect but it is an interesting effort they say Joe Biden has a thirty eight percent chance right now to win the majority of delegates for the Democrats and thirty percent chance of winning is obviously he's the favorite bio a pretty wide margin on the other hand there's a sixty two percent chance he doesn't win so there's a much there's a much better chance that he does not win a majority of delegates than that he does which is a is a way that you have to kind of think about this this is a racist really up in the air Sanders twenty three percent Warren thirteen percent chance of winning the majority of delegates delegates judge ten percent all others with exception of all others is when we about one percent chance of people like Bloomberg and down that you have closure the one this is really interesting though is that they say there's a fifteen percent chance no one wins the majority of delegates which means you're probably going in to have just a convention Virginia a fifteen percent chance they plop right now which is significant yeah all right of more coming up.

Venice’s historic flooding blamed on human failure

"The amount of money required to clear the damage done to Venice by the floods earlier. This month may run into billions of euros but some people are claiming the water should never have reached Venice's lagoon let alone put it squares. Palaces and basilica underwater earlier I was joined by Republicans Enrico Franceschini. He explained why the damage could have been simply klay avoided just by raising a barrier to stop the water the barriers is called Moses and resenting biblical about you know because it seems like has been there forever and ever for centuries actually fifty years. We've been talking about it And no solution then not able to make it work which is unbelievable believable because the threat of flooding in Italy has been with US forever. You know people my generation. It was ten years old. We add the Florence flooding funding. And this is something that baby boomer so remember this in nineteen sixty six floors flooding at almost ruined that all day renaissance. NSS masterpieces so since then there's been a fight to save vanished from going under siege and nothing so Moses is a set of floodgates which should act as a barrier in need lagoon town of Georgia and earlier this month when the floods were imminent. There is a request by the the mayor of Georgia to raise the various. But he says he couldn't find anyone willing to do so and as a result he says the water came and and went right into the heart of Venice. How is this allowed to happen? Well this is one version of events of course It's hard to believe that only you a missing person missing technician being there. You could have saved fantasy you know like from like the titanic from the iceberg but The truth is nobody really knows. Our well is Moses. Who'd work it does cost the billions? But he's not completed so they didn't they the idea that the waters climate change will grow more and more severe in the coming decades should be no people from Venison. I and not just the government should do something bigger anchors so can Italy Save Venice or other will it. I mean when there is a will there is a way but Apparently not in Italy. The problem is that immediately we have too many treasures. We we have no business going to us to say we have eighty percent of the world's are maybe he's not eight will be seventy or seventy five but we have a lot and and when we have in one small country Palm Bay the Roman see the we have the coliseum. We have Florence and Venice people take this for granted and and and so they are not Working to save it as another to do. If you'd be one tenth of we have in seriously true. People are as Blase as that that yes I mean. We've all driven round roundabouts in Rome which have in the middle of them a piece of antiquity. That would be breathtaking anywhere else on us but to allow a whole city to find itself at risk and people just shrug their shoulders. Really think of something. Yes the big issue of the a huge ships. That passenger ships has come to events to threaten to to destroy if if the building. There's been several instances like that and this is another case in which nothing has been done. We've been talking in Tokyo now. Apparently the mayor's decided to create a in different point for for the ships to disembark. But yes I know it's it's it's we'd Venice it's masterpiece something unique in the world. But it's for Ethan is also big source of Man. Of course there are people say too many curious to what we're GONNA do but Italy will advance we lose like like Saudi Arabia without oil. You know so so in a way we really have to get our act together. What is it that stopping people to get from getting their act together? Well you wonder under Amin easily is not a reputation for being very efficient country and our governments Seems more preoccupied. You know we'd keeping in power getting money to their side than than to to do something for the country. Unfortunately this is perhaps why we've had sixty governments in six years in our postwar history and the the reports are with reference to Moses the barrier. Is that there was an awful lot of corruption which meant that. The government had to step in and no added problems. How do you sort something out like that? Especially given the urgency of the situation that we're dealing with it's hard to say because different and coalition governments have gained power in Vannes. Any needs to center left center rate known as salt issue known as been completely without any gift Hilton said Story now the latest is Dude GonNa have a referendum advantage to separate the inland part of the CDs which is called semester from the actual island venison the inland people. Maybe think David Enough and the people may be thinking if you can ever Vinnie any sex it the type of bricks the Venetian style may be. They will be able to solve the problem better.

Climate Change And The Housing market

"We're going deep on the housing market. So let me ask you when you bought your house out there in Berkeley. Were you thinking about natural disaster risks. Well yes primarily earthquake risk. Yeah I mean you know if you're in if you're northern California then a among basically the entire west coast you're terrified water quakes. I also terrified earthquakes so I was thinking about that. I did I looked at houses in some other places where I was worried about. Things like floods and sea level rise But I'm a little further from the water. So I'm I should be safe from that barring some horrible horrible climate change outcome but You know obviously now. Wildfires are irrelevant factor here to what's the market it for earthquake insurance like don't get me started on the market for. It's it's a horrible you. It's incredibly expensive in the coverage which is really bad. There's like a California State Program called the California Earthquake Authority which like Kinda backs it but you have to get it to your local lender and Or your insurer and your insurers don't all cover it it's it's a mess we won't go there. I live in East Boston. And I'm surrounded by water and so the first thing I did when we were thinking about buying a house out here was does look up fema flood maps and do our research on flooding We're up on a hill so turns out according to the FEMA maps were in pretty good shape over a hundred year period of time But guess what I found other. Those maps are not so good the I would say the primary learning learning for me from all this Learning that I've been doing around. Climate risk is that FEMA flood maps or not great. Yes it's a real problem and that is part of what we're GONNA be talking about in this show I I watch tell you that I feel pretty good still I mean we are way up on a hill We're we're kind of surrounded by one side on a river. We've got the airport on one side so there's really not a lot of flooding risk for us like there is in other parts of East Boston or just throughout Boston. Really in fact. Mild down the street at the edge of Boston harbor on our side in East Boston through developing these is new condo buildings. He super expensive units that. Sit Right in these special flood hazard areas like even in the FEMA maps that are out out of day. These buildings buildings are in flood hazard areas. 'em He boggles the mind how to these things. Keep getting bill. How are they insured? Who is backing these these buildings and so this week? We are exploring the financial risk of this kind of development and our guest co-authored really deep and important study quantifying the problem in the US housing market and identifying. How banks are shifting? That risk took us the taxpayers our guest is named a meanwhile Assad. He's a professor of applied economics at the Graduate School of business at Hec Montreal Montreal. He joined us from his Montreal office. And show you doug this piece of research up you pass it over to me. And then the subsequent New York Times article that came amount summarizing the research. What compelled you about it? Well I think in my ongoing obsession around understanding climate risk in the ways is that it's playing out. I think one of the things that I'm finding to be interesting and terrifying Is basically like I think. Climate change and the risk of climate. Change is going to cause all these little distortions in our economy. There's just going to be so much of our economy is driven by weather and natural natural disaster and temperature all this different stuff and so I think you could almost look till like any section of the economy apply climate risk lens to it and then say this is GonNa GonNa get. This is going to turn weird. You know in one way or another and one of the areas that I think we're starting to see that play out right now as evidenced by means research is is in the mortgage market and obviously that one carries a particular weight in the United States. Because it was largely the cause of our last financial financial disaster and in fact the players who are involved in that less financial disaster particularly Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac which are you know sort of the US tax payers ars burying the burden of a bunch of mortgages. They appear to be involved This time as well in sort of an inability to price in a risk USC which is basically what happened in financial disaster. Now it may not be the same order of magnitude of a risk that we saw last time around. But it's a good example to to me of one of the ways in which climate change is just going to start to cause these strange little distortions in our economy right so the market for coastal mortgages in the US is worth sixty billion dollars or more per year depending on you know The real estate market and housing construction etc and and the striking thing about this research and other similar findings is that it's not confined just to a small number of coastal properties if you have have significant default rates it can reverberate through communities and potentially the broader housing market and so a lot of people are asking at least in the popular press when they're summarizing this research. Could this be a repeat of the two thousand seventeen thousand eight housing market collapse. That caused a financial crisis. I think the answer is at this point. No Oh because we're talking about a specific slice of the housing market at least when it comes to coastal properties but still there is this reverberation that can happen through these communities. It's not just like a bunch of select houses that are at risk it can actually have a ripple effect yeah. I don't think we know entirely yet. I think you know a means research which which I talked to him about is new and there isn't a whole lot of research on this yet so I think it remains to be determined. Exactly how big the the risk is but it is true not sort of fear monger here. I think it is true that like the numbers that you're talking about the potential losses to the American tax payer. As a result of this you know as it stands today air in the billions probably But maybe not yet at the level of the financial crisis in two thousand seventeen thousand eight which was you know couple orders of magnitude larger than and so. We should overstate it at the same time. This is the beginning right. And we just don't know where this is going to go and I think it's important to this Shaina light on all these little market distortions caused by climate change because that's the only way that we're going to actually adjust as a result and this to me the whole thing about this series stories that we've been doing on climate risk which is step one is understand the risk but then step two is do something about it. Price it in Insure against got it. Plan around it something And so you know we just gotTa make sure that we're doing that whether we are individual citizens or homeowners whether we are business businesspeople or whether we are policymakers even the federal government and so this is just another place where that's needed you guys really bring the walk in this interview. Yeah I mean look. Give me an academic academic paper and let me run. And you've made a huge mistake but no I mean this is really interesting research. And and the the challenge is that it's not it's not easy to say like like with the impacts of climate change on the mortgage market right now that that's hard to measure and so what I mean and his colleagues who wrote the paper figured out was a pretty clever way to try to get it this question which has to do with the relationship between private lenders and Fannie and Freddie and the rules that govern Fannie and Freddie so it's sort of inherently a a little bit wonky but I always think it's really interesting great. Well let's hear your conversation with a meanwhile Saad who's a professor of applied economics at the Graduate Business School. HEC G C Montreal. The study that you're talking about it's called mortgage finance in the face of rising climate risk. Amin thanks so much for being here. Thank thank you so much for your invitation. It's a pleasure. I'm really excited to chat with you about this research that you conducted recently but I think we should start by offering a little bit of context setting for folks who are not deeply embedded in the mortgage market and as fascinated by. Perhaps as you are so what. What is the role of Fannie and Freddie in this market very briefly and what's the sort of what are the restrictions that Fannie and Freddie have that private lenders do not right so prior to the existence of the creation of Fannie and Freddie the banks that were giving mortgages which is needed to have deposits matching deposits of customers on their balance sheet to extend mortgages Now Fannie and Freddie ready to change that that that mechanism because they allowed the banks to sell their mortgages to Fannie and Freddie and shield the commercial banks from The risk of default of households when when households default on their mortgages the lenders are not exposed to the default risk and it provides liquidity to The commercial banks into non-bank lenders so that they can extend many more mortgages than the amount of deposits that they have on their balance sheet and so this process of securitisation that Finian and Freddie enable is allowing lenders to extend many more mortgages than it would otherwise they were created during during the new deal so we're talking about FDR's administration And have been central to enabling households American households to be homeowners so okay so a mortgage lender has sort of two options are broadly. Speaking mortgage lender has two options with alone. They can hold it on their balance sheet or they can offload it to fannie or Freddie and securitise it and so the sort of crux of what the the the question you've been asking is can we see any impact from climate change or specifically from natural disasters on that decision right which mortgages to originate that a lender can offload in which mortgages in a lender originating. Hold yeah absolutely so there's being there was a a major academic work in Two thousand eight a right. After the financial crisis that said that commercial banks were selling their their bad loans to the government sponsored enterprises Fannie and Freddie That word by that worked by Ben Keys at Warton Really showed that The lenders were offloading The uninsurable On observable bad risk onto the balance sheets of Fannie and Freddie now when When we thought about this securitisation process we would we? We also thought that they would offload their bad climate risk That it is if Fannie and Freddie are not cautious in the kinds of mortgages that are purchasing They're purchasing from the commercial lenders commercial lenders that have of a branch network on the ground have loan officers They know The areas in which they're extending loans. Well they may be able all to observe the climate risk of little abellard better than Fannie and Freddie and And then when we we worked more and more on the research search we realized that Fannie and Freddie really didn't have a proper mechanic SOM to assess the sort of climate risk of they were purchasing from the commercial lenders We realized that they were using maps. That were outdated We realized that Fannie and Freddie were not

"The current experiences of the United States should you would think they'd all nations for roll time from allowing celebrities usually entertainers or sports folk loose in the political sphere. It should of course be noted that the US is not not presently unique in succumbing to this fully Ukraine's. President is a comedian Liberia's of football Pakistan's. Prime Minister is a cricketer later. Dozens of lesser offices around the world are held by people who were helped into them buying name recognition acquired in other fields. Well let me tell you something. The answer is clear for the people to win. Politics as usual must lose so things considered it is not that all surprising that a popstar should fancy himself president Uganda Amazon Robert Trigger Alani Santana who performs under the name bobby wine was elected elected to Uganda's parliament in two thousand seventeen he stood as an independent in a by election in Dondo East and one big. I've come the parliament at a very sensitive time. I've just taken an oath to defend resolve and protect the constitution of the Republic Sleep of Uganda and that is going to be my major major goal right now since then wine has positioned himself for the next presidential election due in two thousand and twenty one among the symbols identifying his movement is the red beret worn by whine and his appearance it bears an emblem of of a clenched fist over a map of Uganda and the Motto People Power Our power but not for much longer if a new rule announced by Uganda's the government is observed a useful regulation has been discovered under which it is against the law for civilians to sport military clothing and some units of the Ganden People's defence force notably its military police wear red berries therefore the wearing of the red beret by non soldiers is henceforth punishable by up to five years in the clink. Bobi wine is among those skeptical that this decision is exclusively motivated by a desire to protect the integrity of the Ugandan army's insignia. It is wind said a sham. It is a blatant attempt to suffocate a successful threat to the autocratic status quo. This is pretty obviously correct. It also prompt the interesting question of exactly Walt Uganda's powers that be scared off at which point joint a recap of Uganda's powers that be or more accurately is this area peaceful full in spite of the nobody would start with a piece of Uganda Yoweri Musevenei now seventy five has been president of Uganda since one thousand nine hundred eighty six and plans to run again in two thousand and twenty one by the standards of Ugandan presidents most of any hasn't done a bad job but those standards were set by Idi Amin and Milton Obote both mad and terrible men Mussolini any to his credit played a considerable role in toppling both however as is invariably the case with overstaying and under challenged leaders. Musevenei has become complacent and his government corrupt Transparency International's global corruption index ranks Uganda slightly less bent than as a John which is basically owned by one family and slightly more so than the Central African Republic which is barely governed at all Uganda's population is young young more than three quarters of its people have been born during Musevini's rule and did he is restless certainly sufficiently so to take its chances with sorry pop singer. It's what they bring me. Wine can and claim reasonably that the leap from musician to politician is not in his case a long one. He has been keen campaigner on several issues and many the songs he has recorded in his studio in Cam. What you're a disheveled neighborhood of Kampala have addressed social injustice to the extent that in August he he was charged with intending to alarm annoy or ridicule President Musevini. Yeah this is not the only legal jeopardy presently hanging over wine he also faces charges of incitement to violence and treason and potentially a life sentence. If convicted wine claims that these charges are politically motivated and it would be very far from the first time that Musevini the people acting on his behalf have attempted to arrest opponents into submission invoking article twenty nine of the Constitution. We've got Dante's every citizen the right to assemble and demonstrate we are going to do this peacefully and take me on on the clube wine says he and his supporters. I will continue to wear the red beret. This is arguably a missed opportunity wine cooed by choosing something else. Just striking have have highlighted the silliness of Viennese edict and jettison the baggage associated with this particular item of Hillary in non-military circles. St Red Berry is an almost invariable choice of revolutionary posers and or populist scoundrels from Hugo Chavez in Venezuela to Julius Melena. Amo in South Africa wine would be within his rights admittedly to retort that it costs more of a dash than the disheveled floppy brimmed Bush hat long favored favored by Mussolini and also if it comes to a rap battle on the strength of Musevini's endeavors in this realm wine will up. I'm monocle twenty four amount.

Hit-and-run tactics a mark of North-East Nigeria attackers

"This is Conan Lennon from UN news. Attacks spy, non state armed groups in parts of northeast Nigeria have left relief workers unsure about the extent of needs among some communities. The UN migration agencies top official in the country said on Tuesday chief of mission of the international organization for migration or IM France seller. Asto told you a news is Daniel Johnson about the extremists use of hit and run tactics. And explain what the priorities are now for the eight teams coping with mass displacement and overcrowded protection comes in the last two years within November two now we've seen more than fifty nine thousand people dismiss this is the largest we've seen in the last two years this number of displacement. So it's because of increasing attacks by onset on groups the frequency impacts in the severity in event sophistication of the attacks. When you say sophistication, maybe described the level of military equipment that these non state armed groups have where. Well, what we've seen is that the deployed various mechanisms of war, you know, motorbikes trucks, they are highly mobile tactics. They use these very fast hit and runs in some cases, hold downs for and they hit the town of ran twice in January's. What's the state of run? Now who is in ran under the humanitarian actors such as yourselves, Iowa and others were affected, you'll facilities burned down to the ground. Who is helping the people in run now. Right. So Wren was attack on the fourteenth in twenty seventh of January. The first case one of our guys were shot in the right shoulder as he was trying to run away the other five survived by hiding in septic tank. They didn't try to burn down our compound. They burned down our generated the took two thousand liters of fuel for much Amin. They ransacked the place. The second time we had one person left underground he was displaced across the border. Then come ruin the first six we brought back to my degree the last one that was left on the ground because he wanted to stay with his family, then they last attack. He couldn't stay because. Almost everybody will force out of ran at the moment. I cannot give you any gives because we don't know who's back and ran because there's no humanitarian that is providing support underground. So we don't have is on the ground. The last person we had had to be evacuated last count. What we heard there were a lot of people moving across the border into Cameroon. So how many people are in northeast Nigeria? Are you aware of that latest Figaro or not not really I I don't have the but the millions? No, be frightening. Incredible. Because we have three states that are affected. We have Borno you'll be in Adamawa and millions of people as you can see more than one point eight million have been displaced in their people who almost everybody or affected in one way or another even those in the host communities, what are you appealing for from the government, for example. What are they doing to protect civilians in the northeast from the government, we expect security of all those who've been displaced in you know, to to provide the space that for the humanitarian community to op. For it say space to improve access to those humanitarian community don't have access to because our job is to provide lifesaving intervention. Call on the nonce groups do to open the space to make sure that to not to attack those vulnerable people not to attack those who are individuals. So we calling on everybody to respect the basic human rights of the Nigerian people and those and tell me a little bit about this weather phenomenon. This Hamadan the sand storm that's affecting operations. How does it hamper your humanitarian delivery of aid? And how does it perhaps hamper the military the Nigerian military from overseeing and protecting populations? How much is a natural weather phenomena. It happens via some some years most of it and others in whenever it happens. It prevents us from operate in fluid manner. Tell me more about what it is what it feels like to experience hometown yourself a Hamilton the first time, I experienced that got really sick because it's a cloud of dust hanging over. And prevents humanitarian flights. It prevents helicopters from flying, and it prevent fixed-wing aircraft from flying. So sometimes our humanitarian staff cannot go to far flung area, which are only accessible by helicopter because the helicopters cannot fly. So it limits what we can do doing Hamilton. And there's a very short time period. Sometimes we look we we like meteorologist. We watched it weather on a daily basis to see what window do we have to fly in how fast can we go back. They fool the storm hits exactly.

What does a coffee enema do?

"I promise you that. I would also finish up here with desert so to speak this whole idea of coffee Animas, and I have a whole article on coffee enema, but I get a lot of people ask me about this. I'm going to give you the one. Oh, one in coffee Animas. No, put plenty of links in the show notes for the equipment, you need an article, I wrote on everything, but the idea behind Coffey animus is they have this amazing capacity. To enhance gut parasol SIS gallbladder bile release liberty toxication and their superior to plain water Animas because they have so many more benefits. You've got theobromine the filling PO medic acid caffeine all of these things in coffee travel through the capillary bed of your rectum into your portal vein, and that leads directly to your liver, and when they do that, they dilate blood vessels. They open up the bile ducts, they allow the liver to release bile. And when that happens, it also stimulates an enzyme system in the liver. That increases glutathione your master antioxidant by six hundred to seven hundred percent that glutathione can react with free radicals in the bloodstream, it can render them inert it can enhance both phase one and face to liberty toxication pathways and then face three. These neutralize substance. Get dissolved in the bile released through the bile flow from the liver in the gallbladder pass out through intestinal track. You poop them out that simple. So so here is the one. One on the coffee. I do this once a week on typically on Wednesday mornings a you need a coffee enema kit. Don't get plastic. Get medical grade silicone stainless steel, there's a version Amazon, you can get pulling to the show notes for portability. There's also a special like a what do you call? It glide Amin's glide suppository is like a coffee enema suppository when I'm traveling. I don't carry the Bill buck and everything, but I do with glider, which give me a lot of these same benefits in suppository form. They don't hold a candle to the to the full on coffee enema, but they can do the trick. So you've got your stainless steel bucket. You've got a little clamp that attached to that. With the two that's going to go up your butt. And of course, you want. I shouldn't have to tell this organic coffee. Definitely don't shove pesticides herbicides up your backside.
