"Okay. So I'm not a big drinker, but I feel like when you're in a local place like that, it just makes it all the more special. Excellent. Anybody who comes to Amsterdam will definitely already have their must see sites. I just hope that I've given you some more things to think about in different ways that you can see this magical city so that you can actually get a good feel for it and that you will want to come back and see it all over again. You are standing at the prettiest spot in the Amsterdam, where are you standing? What are you looking up? I'm going to go with my spot because I call it my spot. I can find it on Google today. I was very mad. Somebody put it on Google. It's on hair and grats. And I think it's called nice place to sit on Google. I can't remember the cross canal. I'll give it to you for the show notes if that happens. Okay. It looks through a bunch of the bridges, so it is at the end of another canal that comes in perpendicular. And so you have the canal boats going past you, and then they'll be boats coming towards you and you're just feel like you're watching the whole world and it's my absolute favorite spot. It's so beautiful. Excellent. Canal houses, bridges, water, it's perfect. One thing that makes you laugh and say only in Amsterdam. People carrying a ton of stuff on their bike. Sure. From refrigerators to chairs to tables to Christmas trees to 5 kids. I really get the feeling like only an Amsterdam. Only an Amsterdam or a third world country. It's really funny. You'd see that in Southeast Asia, but not so much in London or some place like that. I guess because I travel mostly in Europe, I guess it just makes me feel very much like Amsterdam..

"I'm a very bad person to do touristy things where I live. But I am trying to get there. We have a thing called the museum card in Amsterdam. Another one. So I keep saying, I'm gonna get it. I'm gonna see all the museums so that I can properly explain these to people. Well, in the secret church, I'm talking about our lord in the attic basically was when Protestantism became the dominant religion there was still some freedom of religion and so you were allowed to have a Catholic Church, but it wasn't, it couldn't be very obvious. And different regions in Europe had different rules at different times. And this is a not a secret church in the sense that nobody knew about it is my impression, but in the sense that it was not obvious that it was a church. Yeah, and I feel like it very much goes with the way the Dutch live their life here. It's like out of sight out of mind. If it doesn't bother people, it's not that big of a deal. I mean, that's a generalization, of course, but it's kind of a nice thing. You don't have super nosy people. People kind of keep to themselves, but they're so friendly. There's just so many things that kind of falls into the Dutch lifestyle that you may actually notice when you come to visit. We can drink in the park, but if you're drunk in the park, that's a totally different story. Right. Nobody's gonna stop you for having a bottle of wine in the park with your picnic, but you start being loud, you're dancing around your running around with dogs and screaming and causing a ruckus and the police might have something to say about it. When one thing I'm curious about and we made reference to the red light district, which is I haven't been to. Not necessarily my scene. You missed it somehow. Not not a pot smoker..

"That's why I think you could easily do that all in a day and get a really nice overview. Okay. And then if we go outside of Amsterdam and get really outside, you could go to Rotterdam. Which I recommend because it's funny in the Netherlands when you live here. There's a big rivalry between Amsterdam and Rotterdam. Okay. I don't know where that comes from. It might be soccer for all I know. 'cause it probably is, we each have our own team. But it was actually mostly destroyed in the war. Right. And so the architecture is very different. The culture is very different. They have different kinds of food that is from there. It's just a very unique place. The port of Rotterdam is one of the biggest ports in Europe, if it's not the biggest. It's just a totally different vibe. So you can easily take the train there for a day. You can of course stay the night if you prefer that. But they have food tours. They have bike tours, and I would actually recommend a bike tour there. Okay. Just to get a real feel for what it's like in a city city because it does feel more modern, that kind of a thing. And it's just so different. I don't have as many words because I'm like, people are like, I'm better than my Amsterdam. I'm like, okay. Well, you say, for instance, that the food is different. When you're in Rotterdam, you really ought to try the they have something called a capsule on, which we do have here in Amsterdam, but I capped salon was invented in Rotterdam and that is the craziest dish. It is like shawarma on top of fries with what else is there. Cheese and oh gosh, what else is in a salad? Gouda or Gouda cheese depending on your pronunciation here. Yeah. I'm sorry, that's right. I don't Gouda is very, yeah, it's American, so that's what they say here if they're talking to Americans usually anyway. Right. But yeah, it's just this massive food. It feels like more urban I think is what they would say because it feels more like a city than Amsterdam does. So it feels a little bit more grungy, a little bit more real, a little bit more energy. Okay. But worth seeing as much as I love Amsterdam, it's not the one and only thing to see. Okay. Or experience. And by the way, it is the largest port in Europe. It is the largest port in Europe, yay. In the history have you met my friend? The.

"And then you have markin, which you have to work a little bit more to get to. But that's an old fishing village, beautiful green houses. And if you want to go a little bit more inland and get kind of a different perspective from the water, one of my favorites is a little tiny little town called Brooklyn waterland. Okay. And it's on the way to those places. So you could stop there first and do a quick little walkthrough. And then hop back on the bus and head north. And it's just magical almost. And I don't know Dutch, but it sounds like we're saying Brooke in waterland and that's almost exactly how it's spelled. So we're in a watery place right on a brook. It's one of the more picturesque places, which is okay. Saying something considering they're all very picturesque and it's just, again, it's not gonna take you very long. This is just to kind of get you out there and to try something different. And I think you know if the town eat them, right? That you tease. And that's also in that area. So you can kind of combine a lot of little trips into one big day trip. And before you get back, you can stop at in Amsterdam Nord. And that's where I live. I live in on the other side of the water from central station. And a lot of people when they come to Nord, they go to NDS, M and that's where you have all the street art. Oh, okay. And it's absolutely beautiful. It's where they used to make boats. Maybe beautiful's not the right word, but it's very striking because it's very industrial, lots of color. People love to take photos there any time you're there. There's a photo shoot going on, at least one or two. It's just very interesting and they have a street art museum up there..

"So a lot of people will tell you to just walk the canals, which you should absolutely do. But if you go to the neighborhood of the you're done, which is right outside of the main canal ring, Amsterdam's main city center has a few kind of like U shaped canals and in between the very big one and the smaller one, the smaller ones called prints and grat, there's this great neighborhood cover you are done, where the Anne Frank house is and then it goes outward. It's such a beautiful area that people don't tend to walk around, which is kind of crazy considering how close it is to the famous Anne Frank museum. And you can just have the streets to yourself and see the stunning architecture. There's little canals back there. And it's just so peaceful and I feel like you actually feel the city. Instead of just being sightseeing and you mentioned the Anne Frank house, so we should probably mention what we're talking about. I think a lot of people, if not, most of the listeners know that we're talking about the house where on Frank and her family hid from the Nazis in World War II, I have not seen the inside because I did not plan ahead and there's a big line going out the door and we did not wait. Any tricks to getting in and seeing the unfriend house? Book very early. As soon as you know that you're coming to Amsterdam book early. They have a great online system. You can show up the day of, of course, after 2021, I don't know how they're gonna do it, but they did start letting people in if you didn't have a ticket after a certain time and the day I think that was 3 o'clock. But I wouldn't count on that. So book early is the best advice I can give. If you can't get into the Anne Frank house for any reason, there are other Jewish museums on the other side of the city on the east side of the city. And they are definitely worth going to, whether or not you do visit the Anne Frank house. But if you aren't able to, it's a good spot to go so that you can still understand that history and get a little bit of that. Okay. But you brought us to this neighborhood, not just for that, but also are we going to do in the udon? Yeah, so it looks like Jordan except with two as and Jays and Dutch are more like a ya kind of sound. On the edge of the you're done, you'll have the norder marked, which is on Saturdays and it is an amazing little market. And there's so many good things to eat there and right on the edge of that is going to be wrinkle, which is the world famous Dutch apple pie. It is like the one place that visitors know to get Dutch apple pie. I'll be honest, I didn't even know Dutch apple pie was a thing. Yes. Okay. I'm not sure I feel like I'm maybe mistaken, but I do feel like it is the precursor to the American apple pie. That might be worth it. Okay. Looking up, but it's a little bit different. It has a different kind of top to it..

I think a lot of people have a lot of preconceived notions about Amsterdam in regards to maybe sin city kind of things.

Her speed impressed fellow passenger a biology teacher and he got her place training with the boys track and field team at school.

"One has ever seen tarinah source walk. Still movies like jurassic park have guessed how fast it would have done that now. Scientists have used the skeleton of t. Rex to model the bio mechanics of the animals stride and they've estimated its dreaded at a leisurely pace on par with humans. Ostriches elephants and giraffes. And it's not just limited to those animals. Horses gazelles news. Turns out that actually. Most animals don't tend to walk. Superfast pasha von beyeler is a movement. Scientists had variety university in amsterdam. His team studied the skeleton of not. Rex housed in a dutch museum. The specimen nicknamed tricks is exceptionally well preserved. So they were able to. How ligaments would have attached to and linked to the animal's tail bones. Those ligaments they would've acted like rubber bands and the researchers used mathematical modeling to study. How they would have given the tail bounce as the t. rex. The animal could have taken advantage of that natural bouncy rhythm to save energy as it moved that is basically resonance you get more movement for less effort if you choose to correct rhythm at which you do things so that helped estimate the beat which t rex would have pounded its feet but to determine speed. They still needed to know how far each step was and to do that. We found fossilized track way of a slightly smaller through sword. Skilled it up to the size of our t. rex and that gives you a step length. Multiple is step length by step rhythm and you get a speed of one point two eight meters per second or about two point nine miles per hour. The results were published by the royal society. Von bildt says he's seen a lot of headlines stating that humans could have outpaced t rex. Not so he says. Once the animal started running. I guess we should be glad that there's a lot of time between us and t-rex

"Yeah have all those like titles you know yes her like a headlines Yes. Yes. So. Funny after her death, her body was brought back to New York City where she was buried in her spirit might have come along with it, but we'll get more into that later. Now, switching gears back to the new Amsterdam once the Great Depression hit in nineteen, twenty nine, the theater started to decline and really failed to gain any traction it ended up sitting empty and deteriorating for sixty years. Oh Dang. Like just completely empty falling to ruin like it's wild. Looks see here's no one. Bought it the whole time? No. Even after the depression day I know it's it's surprising to say the least in nineteen ninety-three though Disney theatrical group signed a ninety nine year lease on the theatre and refurbish it over two years ninety nine year lease. And first of all, what first of all, I have to acknowledge that I can't I'm sorry I'm sorry it's so annoying. How can we stop I'm sure I have to acknowledge that it's an ninety nine year lease. Yeah. That's wild that is I mean I make sense I thought honestly before my research I thought that Disney. Oh, I prepped today's script by the way. Clear Anyway. So I thought does he actually owned the new Amsterdam, but it turns out it's a ninety nine year lease. anyways Oh, I was GONNA. Say if you look at pictures of the new Amsterdam before the renovation, it is rough like it looks like the quintessential haunted leader. Yeah. Well, sitting there for sixty years. No literally it. Yeah, and on the new ems website, they will report a quote about like the history and they say to describe the disarray that it was left in over over six years they write. This is their website. They say quote the boxes on either side of her procedure had been torn out the ceiling had collapsed and years of rain and snow had. Deposited over two feet of standing water in the basement mushrooms. The size of dinner plates were growing throughout the house and once spectacular murals and sculptures were marred beyond recognition. It took a team of over four hundred expert engineers, plasterers, painters, and technicians to restore the theatre back to her original glory and quote. Wow mushrooms the size of dinner plates that's crazy. Can you imagine how he was water smoke Nineteen ninety-three. Okay. Well how yeah. That's wild I'm just like shocked that it it was such. An iconic theater was just sitting there for so long literally the House of like the Ziegfeld follies. Yeah. How does that like how is that not? Why as to say, how is that not like preserved by the government but then I remembered that the government. Darts. anyways. So the theater finally reopened in Nineteen ninety-seven and after the premiere of the Disney animated film Hercules which I thought was kind of fun. The Disney people out there at a concert version of King David Disney opened the stage version version of the king that November, and then it ran all the way up until I am pretty sure. Okay. Yeah. So that's the VIBE. That's the history of. Pretty cool history..

So her now married relationship with Jack, Jack Pickford was said to be pretty tumultuous slash probably toxic and in nineteen twenty, they decided to take a second honeymoon in Paris. Late One night. Got It what. Is Good for them. Late One night slash early morning in Paris. All of Jack came home after night on the town they're both drunk and all of couldn't sleep. So she went to the bathroom to find a quote unquote sleeping solution. But what she actually ended up drinking was a bottle of Jackson Mercury, chloride that. What is that? it's that does not sound good. It's literally like liquid mercury and it was actually okay we. She just thought it was for Jack, Pickford. S. T.. S. and so this like they use it as I think it was like mainly topical like a topical cream for his STD's that he got from definitely not olive. and She just drank it. Yeah because I duNno medicine bottles. I. Guess just like label property properly I guess I duNno tank anyway. So that's what happened and the tragedy quickly became one of Broadway's first scandals. Was It really an accident was murder suicide the rumors flew as papers of the time describing the couple they wildest brats whoever stirred the stardust of Broadway. And I say that's a direct quote. Literally, the the there is a quote in my research has appeared multiple times says that the couple was described as the guest wildest brats ever stirred the stardust of Broadway.

That stars you But for folks who don't remember, don't know. Tell us what happened then. Well, we, me and my two friends. We've decided to European trip together. We met up in Amsterdam were there for about three days. Then we decided to take a train to Paris. And I was a lot of things that you know. Put us in that time and place coincidences or fate, I guess. And we were on the train for about two or three hours. Spencer and Anthony. My two friends were asleep and I was on the window seat messaging. Some friends back home. I heard Ah! Gunshot breaking glass didn't really know what to think of it. In a train employees and running away from the noise of a full sprint. So I looked back. He was running away from and there was a shirtless man within a 47. I knew immediately what was going on inside Death behind the seat. Spencer, my friend on aisle. Woke up and saw what I was looking at. So I hit him on the shoulder basically said, Let's go. He ran at the guy tackled him. I caught up to him and long story short. Basically, I beat him over the head with his gun while my friend choked him unconscious. And then your life changed. Talk about what happened after that. Well after that. I mean, it kind of turned into international story over just a matter of a few days came home, did a bunch of interviews. Uh, we got the French Legion of Honor as well. We did desk with stars we did. The show wants to be a millionaire. We wrote a book about what happened. Shortly after the book we met, finished with that kind of Ah. After party for an event that we did we started talking to him and kind of joke that he maybe should do the movie about it. He said. Send me a book. You never know what you're followed up, sent him a book. He agreed to do the movie about us and then we film the movie and I came out February of 18. I believe And then Ah! Around that time, I actually met my state senator on a plane and talked politics and agreed on most everything, and he encouraged me to look at politics is a way to continue to fight for what we believe in. And I mean, honestly, the more I learned the anger I got. I mean, this congressional district is the poorest in Oregon, and I mean again in 33 years, I think our Democrat incumbent would Have enough power or seniority to change that for us, and he just hasn't How much does the difference of a difference does it make for you? A guy who's not run for Congress before. As you're out there on the trail, Clinton's would made that the daring decision to star the three of you in the movie as yourselves. So when people see you, they've seen you on TV. They know this famous story. They may not remember the name Alek Skarlatos. But when you start telling yourself, they know who you are, that's got to make a difference and give you an advantage against a guy that has over 30 years in Congress. And all the lobbyists money all the D C. Money that's gotta help. Oh, I'm sure it does. But I mean, that's not why I'm running and I think that that's People aren't gonna vote for me just because I was in a clinic Eastern movie. I mean, it's the end of today. We're running on the issues like timber industry and proper force management and getting people back to work and turning the economy around for southwestern Oregon. Things that Peter DeFazio of the Democratic Committee has ignored for the last 33 years, and people are really upset with him, and they're looking for a change. And I mean, this is just the Classic story of a career politician that hasn't done anything for his district in too long, and people are looking for a change, and hopefully I can bring about that change for them. I urge our listeners wherever you are sending money..
