How to stop multi-tasking (mostly)
"Jerry Lewis v wave dead seditious incur Kobe also Amy wine-house, Johnny cash and more disgrace them to rock and roll true crime podcast stories about musicians getting away with murder and behaving. Very badly is available now posted by me. Jake Brennan, you can listen to disgrace of heart radio app, apple podcasts, or wherever you get your podcasts. Good morning. This is Laura welcome to the before breakfast podcast. Today's tip is to stop multitasking. Well, mostly one of the most common questions. I get asked the talks what I think about multitasking, my answer is that it depends. Most of us understand multitasking doing two or more things at once by that definition. It's both innocuous and inevitable. My guess is that your doing something else? While listening to this podcast driving making your coffee getting dressed exercising waiting for the bus. And that's fine. You're also multitasking if you exercise with the friend make dinner with your spouse talk with your kids while driving all of these are great ways to spend time. No complaints from me there where we get in trouble with multitasking is when we're doing two things that require the same kind of attention at the same time. You know, what I mean checking your texts while someone is trying to talk with you answering emails while you're on a conference, call writing a report while monitoring slacker instant messages, look, I know it's tempting we all have so much to do avoiding Email entirely during an hour long conference. Call can seem like a huge waste of time. And yet we're never really doing two things like answering Email and listening to a call at once or tagging our attention back and forth between the two or losing time on every switch. So it's inefficient and the danger is that we're not paying attention to the right thing at the right time. I know this has happened to me I will. Mitt that. Sometimes if I'm on a call, and it's running long, I will look at my inbox inevitably. I missed the question, then the person is saying, and what do you think about that Laura? And I either have to embarrass myself by asking the person to repeat the question or I flubbed through an answer that has nothing to do with the matter at hand or stuff like this. It's really hard to rely on willpower. I mean, your inbox is right there. Instead, I think the best answer is to be very careful about scheduling yourself into stuff that will make multitasking tempting in other words, if you know, you're going to be able to check Email while you're on a call ask if you really need to be on that call maybe the Genda is too vague. Maybe there are too many people maybe you can send around quick Email. Instead, you might also change the format. I know I'm doing a lot more videoconferences these days because everyone pays more attention when they can see each other's faces. And if you think about it and are distracted world. Attention really is the ultimate sign of respect. Challenge yourself today, the pay full attention to whatever you've chosen to see if you can convert some calls to video chat or to keep your phone in a death during a meeting, I promise you'll feel more engage which actually makes work feel more pleasant. In the meantime, this is Laura thanks for listening. And here's to making the most of our time. Hey, everybody. I'd love to hear from you. You can send me your tips your questions or anything else.

THE 27 CLUB
"Welcome to a new episode of what really happened produced by Dwayne, the rock Johnson, Danny Garcia, Brian, Goertz, and cadence. Thirteen. Now our show is only as good as our listeners. Y'all fact check me provide new insight, give your opinions and to become a contributor, simply go to Jenks pod dot com. Slash contributors or call four one, three, four, seven one, two, nine, seven, five. Thank you for being a listener and voice for the podcast. In the last few years NFL star, Aaron, Hernandez, musician, and rapper freight. Oh, Santana, k, pop star, Kim, Jong young all died at twenty seven years old upon their death. Many publications made a point of saying that they joined a special club a special club. You may ask, well, picture, perhaps somewhere in heaven, six positions, they're at a private club. They're in different parts of the large elegant living room that offers fine dining, a wall of interesting in wide ranging literature and obviously comfortable expensive sofas and shares near the entrance is Amy wine house. She's focused while writing in her notepad which isn't a surprise. If you watch the documentary, Amy, you'll see a scene in which she is inside a studio, writing the lyrics for her back to black album. Unlike many pop stars of her era. Wine-house for this critically acclaimed album co wrote only four of the songs and herself wrote the rest of the album. This led to five Grammies in two thousand and eight tying the record at the time for most wins by a female artist in one night in two thousand one wine-house house died of alcohol poisoning. She was twenty seven years old on the other side of the room is Brian Jones from the Rolling Stones. It's hard to see him because there are a variety of instruments surrounding him. He seems like a mechanic obsessed with his tools, the sitter saxophone, oboe, and a dulcimer a Falk instrument which few know of and apparently dates back to the early nineteenth century where it was used somewhere in the Appalachian mountains. Bill Wyman, bass guitarist, further Rolling Stones. Once said, Brian Jones formed the band. He chose the members. He named the band in nineteen sixty-nine. Brian Jones drowned in a swimming pool at his home while under the influence of. Drugs. He was dead at twenty seven years old quietly working away with a companion in the middle of this lavish room is Jim Morrison. Jim would rather be in a corner or one side of the room like the others, but space is limited. Jim says to his friend, hey, listen, I don't know how to write songs. Got these words in my head and the only way I can remember them is with melodies Jim finds a quieter side room and sings a cappella. A song like crystal ship has a complicated melody, but Jim sings it and his fellow musician says, holy shit, wait a minute, f, sharp. Let's do that. Jim couldn't play a chord on any instrument, but he had this orchestra in his head. Morrison is considered one of the greatest singers in rock recorded six studio albums with his band, the doors and is well known for his poetry Morrison's. Death was likely from congestive heart failure while in a bathtub. Some have disputed this for different reasons, including there is no. Oh, autopsy done and changing stories from those who were around him at the time when he died in nineteen seventy-one Rolling Stones headline didn't mention his music. Instead, it said James Douglas Morrison, poet dead at twenty-seven. Unlike anyone else at this private club, Kirk Cobain has wandered up onto the second floor and discovered. There was an easel that was intended to be highbrow decoration for the prestigious club, but Cobain didn't consider this found it to be a waste of a perfectly usable easel and got to work. His painting is coming together. It will be extraordinary. Kurt was a prolific artist and frontman of nirvana considered one of the greatest bands of all time in nineteen Ninety-four four, he committed suicide. He was twenty seven years old. Janice Joplin is hard to see it. I, she also has found a corner, but there's a group of people as it turns out, mentors surrounding her job. Pleine was self taught listening and studying Billie holiday Otis, Redding and endless others Joplin admired Bessie Smith so much. She paid for tombstone to be erected where Smith is unmarked. Grave had been Joplin has been called the first lady and Queen of rock and roll. Sure means one of the top selling musicians in US history in one thousand nine hundred seventy. She died of a heroin, overdose. She was twenty seven years old. He may be alone and not talking anyone, but Jimi Hendrix is easy to spot with blue velvet pants and a shiny red top with an oversized. Well, perfectly oversized scarf. He isn't surrounded by people like Joplin, but a variety of strings. When Hendrix was about twelve years old. He was with his younger brother, Leon clearing the garage, Leon remembered. There was a ukulele. It had one string, and that's where Jimmy started. He took it one string and when he wanted to. Change notes. He tighten and loosen it, and that's how he started to make music. He said, wow, I get the whole range on one string. It was like Jimmy could just about play anything on one string here music, and he learned it. Music has a spirit and Jimmy felt that spirit. The rock and Roll Hall fame describes Hendrix as arguably the greatest instrumentalist in the history of rock music Rolling Stone has considered him the greatest artists of all time in one thousand nine hundred seventy sleeping medication caused an accidental overdose. He was twenty seven years old. These are the six musicians in the club all six tragically dead at twenty seven years old. They have become known as the main members of the twenty seven club. In fact, they are part of a larger club of which there is at least fifty members. Fifty musicians who have all died at twenty seven years old author Howard soon. NHS has written by fees on Bob Dylan, Amy wine house, Charles Bukowski and is author of the book twenty-seven a history of the twenty seven club Howard cataloged three thousand four hundred sixty three people between nineteen o eight and two thousand twelve all cheating. Notoriety in popular music. He sorted out at what age each person died. The oldest person was a hundred and five years old and the youngest was fifteen twenty nine individuals died at twenty five years old thirty individuals died at twenty six years old. Suddenly at twenty seven years old fifty died when twenty eight years old. The number of deaths goes back down to thirty two and a twenty nine years old thirty four deaths. That means the average age of death in the two years before twenty seven and after twenty-seven is just over thirty artists, but at twenty seven years. Old. It is nearly twice the number. There have been books and documentaries examining the twenty seven club even studies in academic papers. Many of looked at this and considered the club a curse. There are endless theories. Why? Those at twenty seven years old seemed to die at an unusually high rate. I wanna know what really happened. For years. I thought a lot about this twenty seven club. I pitched a scripted series HBO about eight years ago in a documentary series to a few production companies only a year or so ago. If you go online, you'll see endless articles about it. When this term the twenty seven club actually started is unknown. It seems to have taken off by the media and public at large after Kurt Cobain died. It is reported that his mother said, I told him not to join that stupid club. However, whether she was referring to others who had died at twenty seven or was referring to potential suicides in the family is unknown. Author, Charles r cross said Hendrix Morrison and Joplin all were at least lucky enough to die before the internet entertainment tonight, and people magazine it wasn't until Kirk Cobain took his own life in nineteen Ninety-four that the idea of the twenty seven club arrived in the popular zeitgeist. Cockbain suicide set off a worldwide media onslaught, and Cobain's mother added to the launch of the club concept, much of the coverage of this club focuses on six of the most famous musicians who died at twenty seven. The six. I mentioned earlier here in order of when they died, Brian Jones, Jimi Hendrix, Janice Joplin, Jim Morrison, Kurt cobaine, and Amy wine house when studying all six, there are interesting similarities outside of just their age. One genius in his early days. Jim Morrison was certainly known for his good looks is what many of us imagined when talking about a rockstar, moody, sexy, scandalous noted for taking a piss wherever he wanted as a result. Morrison's brains were sometimes overlooked for my young age. She loved poetry history, philosophy unit. When he graduated high school, he asked his parents if they'd get. him. The works of Nici. A genius is considered somebody with an IQ above. One forty. Morrison is reported to have an IQ level of about one hundred forty nine, Amy wine house was a bookworm at a young age reading literature, ranging from catch twenty two to art Spiegelman's Maus wine house was a spelling bee champion and advanced mathematics. This genius or at very least incredible intellect, and creativity is clear with each member of this club. The second similarity, divorce or traumatic experiences with parents. Amy wine house was nine years old. When her parents split Kirk, Cobain was also nine years old. When his parents divorced. He wrote on his bedroom wall. I hate mom, I hate dad, dad hates mom. Mom hates dad. Kurt was ultimately sent to live with his cousins eventually becoming virtually homeless when Jimi Hendrix was fifteen years old. Old, his mom died behind a bar after collapsing. His dad wouldn't let Jimmy go to the funeral. Jim Morrison's, father, an army guy was always moving. And Jim wrote about wanting to kill his dad and refuse to ever see him in Brian Jones's Lee teens, his parents were so sick of his lifestyle. He came home one night to find his suitcase. In the driveway, said, Pat Andrews girlfriend of Brian's and mother to one of his children. The one thing Brian wanted was first father more so than his mother to say, Brian, I'm proud of you. The third similarity, a family history of mental health issues. This is tough because to this day, people are afraid of talking about their own mental health issues and any history of this in once family still faces the stigma that comes along with it. Family records, oftentimes avoid whatever the reality was according to Howard soons his book about the twenty seven club. There was a history of odd behavior. And violent death and Kirk Cobain's extended family on his mother's side. Kurtz great grandfather died in a mental hospital of a self inflicted stab wound on his father's side. Kurtz great-grandfather, a county sheriff died in bizarre circumstances. Reaching for a cigarette. He dislodged his pistol which fell to the ground went off and shot him dead to of sheriff cobaine sons chose suicide by gunshot Jim Morrison, Janice Joplin, and Jimi Hendrix families all had a history of alcoholism. The fourth similarity, each individual showed signs of severe mental health issues. Several people in Brian Jones's life believed he had bipolar disorder, also known as manic depression. Linda Lawrence, who had a child with Brian said, the parents thought he was just a bad child. He was a sick human being that needed comfort and love. While in highschool aiming wine house was asking her mother who was. A pharmacist why she felt depressed. Wine house began taking medication later in life. She would take the anti anxiety medication. LeBron a drug Janice Joplin used for similar reasons, Joplin herself. Once wrote in a letter, I wanna be happy. So fucking bad at seven years old. Kerr Cockbain was considered hyperactive and put on Ritalin.

You need to start building a ring of security around your home. Just go to ring dot com. Slash w. r. h. that's ring dot com. Slash w. r. h.. The fifth similarity drugs and alcohol. Kerr, Cockbain and Janice Joplin were addicted to heroin Hendrix used LSD cocaine, in a means more. Sin used LSD mescaline amphetamines and many believe died of an accidental heroin, overdose all drank to excess and all smoked a lot of weed. I spoke with Charles r cross author of the New York Times bestselling book, heavier than heaven. The definitive two thousand one biography of Kirk Cobain. He also wrote room full of mirrors a biography on Jimi Hendrix cross is one of the top music journalists in the world. He pointed out that it's important to not get lost in certain narratives and remember the nuance and layers in people's lives not to mention the facts. Many people talk about Jimi Hendrix and they talk about his life as it is the life of a drug addict. I think that's really overstating it because I think his accessibility in the. Availability of any of these drugs, and in fact, is ability to pay for them really only would have even come up in the last year and a half of his life to Charles point. I don't want to make it seem like these musicians lives are somehow exactly the same. We are talking about unique artists, but there is without a doubt, similarities, the six similarity that I want to bring up all six seemed to have felt trapped for significant portions of their lives, and it certainly sucks to be trapped. Imagine that feeling, but being an artist when your entire livelihood centers around expression, Kirk Cobain, chronicle this feeling throughout his childhood in a small town, a hundred miles south west of Seattle Hendrix, felt trapped as his family moved frequently. Also around the Seattle area Joplin hated her high school so much. She go onto say, they laughed me out of class out of town and out of state when Jimmy. Hendrix, finally could leave home. He desperately wanted to play music, but instead felt forced to join the army. He'd send letters to his father, pleading for him to send over his Petar like other musicians when Hendrix did reach fame. He felt audiences trapping him to only performing the songs they had come to love for Jimmy. There was also race, Charles r, cross added. You know, Jimmy just simply could not be accepted in African American radio lack stations in America with not play him, and he felt to some degree betrayed by that at the same time, he was trapped within a worldwide rock culture, and everybody wanted to hear purple haze and here in Sweden on the electric guitar. Jimmy wasn't as interested in that last and most important. All six were extremely talented. I think what was amazing about Jimmy for himself awareness is that music was away for him to. Express themselves emotionally. He wasn't a big talker. He wasn't somebody who sat down and said, hey, I've got a lot going on. Listen to me talk about this. He wasn't very analytical about himself. And yet at the same time, once you put a guitar in his hand, he was able to then use music to kind of create this picture of his emotion. Jimmy said that he saw music colors. I truly think he was a musical genius and like some of the grey classical composers. He was in some ways touched by what he was able to create what he was able to actually do with this instrument. You know he was smarter than people want to remember. There are several other similarities. Each have been reported to have premonitions about their own untimely death. Each had run ins with the law, each rose to fame relatively quickly in some cases extraordinarily quickly and each had complicated relationships with lovers. Why do these similarities matter? We'll get there, but I, it's important to note that in addition to the musicians of the twenty-seven club, there are also world renown artists who have died at twenty-seven. Perhaps the most celebrated artist of his generation was John Michel Basquiat who died at twenty-seven like many others in this club. He died of a drug. Overdose also came from a small town move frequently as a child and showed signs of brilliance at eleven years old. He was fluent in Spanish, French and English, and could read very techs in these respective languages at thirteen years old. His mother committed him to a mental institution at fifteen years old. His father left his son on the streets. His rise to fame was quick at just twenty four years old. He appeared on the cover of the New York Times magazine in a feature titled new, our new money, the marketing of an American artist. There are also those who have died or had several mental health issues that appear to fit a breaking point right around twenty seven years old at twenty-six Britney Spears infamously, went to rehab only to leave a day later and shave her head in front of cameras, and thus the world heath ledger died when he was Twenty-eight. His former wife said for as long as I'd known him, he had bouts with insomnia. He had too much energy. His mind was turning turning turning, always turning. I'm sort of hesitant to talk about the following. But if we're going to do an episode on this twenty-seven club, it doesn't take a lot of searching around or reading different books to see why those who believe in supernatural or mystical forces. Have really latched onto something unexplainable happening at twenty-seven according to certain mystic and Christian theologies. The number twenty seven is known as the death number twenty-seven is a lunar symbol of the divine light. Ancient Greek philosophy in a complex system that used numbers to explain the universe proposed that twenty-seven represented the process of the soul being reabsorbed into its creator in the Bible's book of Genesis. God creates humans in the twenty seventh verse in Buddhist philosophy, twenty seven is the highest level of spiritual taint accounting for leap years and measuring a year as three hundred sixty five and a quarter days. There are thirty one million, five hundred fifty, seven thousand six hundred seconds in a year. The some of those numbers is twenty-seven. But at what point can retake any number and begin to assign some sort of larger meaning to it. I'm not doubting the importance of astrology. Or numerology right now for this portion, I'm going from fact checking to an opinion, but I think there's a massive reach to start drawing correlations between the meanings of twenty-seven. And these people dying at twenty seven years old with the help of Jonathan Harris and others I could now talk forever about twenty-seven. The diameter of the moon is point two, seven, two times that of earth approximately twenty seven percent. The atomic weight of Aluminum's only stable isotope is twenty-seven according to hang sh- way. It's good luck to have twenty-seven identical coins at home in baseball. Each team has twenty-seven outs twenty-seven is a perfect cube three by three by three. The English alphabet contains twenty six characters. In the seventh century, European monks invented the white space character between words and the alphabet. Now contains twenty seven characters. I'm thirty two years old while writing this which means I've lived for two hundred and eighty six thousand five hundred twenty seven hours. If I was reading this in the federated states Micronesia, otherwise, not twenty-seven. The more I studied numbers and understood the thinking behind supernatural or mystical forces the more I found myself thinking, well, twenty-seven is certainly a number with a lot of meetings behind it. Twenty seven is the age. These individuals died, but just simply pointing this out is about all you can do trying to connect. The two feels forced. It is forced. It reminds me of the danger of conspiracy theories. You see different things going on and attempt without facts to connect them. Let's say you're looking at a piece of paper and there are two dots. One dot represents people dying at twenty seven and the other dot represents the meanings of the number twenty seven, but I'm doing right now is trying to create a line that connects these two dots, but that's all I'm doing. Trying opposed to explanations that we've talked about explanations which can cause an early death drugs and alcohol, family history of mental health issue. Use fame depression or lack of support. There is a line connecting those dots and the dots of those who have died at twenty seven years old. If you're interested in exploring this further, there is plenty of reading out there on the meaning behind twenty-seven. And any correlations this may have, but not for me. And with all this information, I took a deep breath and went back to the drawing board. So as many of you know, I'm really proud to have some great sponsors this year for our podcast.

When doing research for each episode, I always try to remind myself and I know mocked me if you think this is cheesy, but I try to remind myself of the George Orwell quote to see what is in front of one's nose needs constant struggle. Maybe this happens in your life when you've been preparing for some big event. And then when the special day comes, you've realized what's the address again, what my wearing? Did I get a gift, an oversight of the most obvious form a few days ago. I was in a cab home from psychiatry point of all things when I thought. All right, are twenty-seven club episode is coming up. Is there anything I missing? One component I began harping on is something that's been on my mind this whole time, and that is the word club in the twenty seven club. I was somewhere in the mid seventies in central park. When I looked up the word to make a long story short, generally speaking club is a good thing to be a part of a sports club, a book club, a dance. Club, there's exceptions like anything, but generally speaking, you wanna be in a club, the twenty seven club sounds like this to at least for me. It doesn't just sound like something special, but something you'd want to be in. And then I thought, well, maybe it's an ode to these great musicians. If you're going to die at a young age, this is an impressive group to be with, but then it kind of hit me in all likelihood, the last thing these six members would ever want to be a part of some sort of club. We're talking about world-class rebels, individual thinkers, these were artists who were the least likely people to ever join any type of club far more seriously and less of me participating is proof that these musicians didn't wanna be a part of this club. We know this because they asked oftentimes pled for help help for their depression, mood swings, drug habits, help from their own family and friends. If there is such a twenty-seven club, they add. Actively were hoping not to be a part of it. If you haven't seen the kademi award winning documentary on any wine house called Amy, I'd highly recommend it. It's directed by Asif Kapadia while researching this episode of the podcast. And after we watching the film and going down the rabbit hole of reading more about us process while working on the movie, I came across the below quote also is talking about one of Amy's most well known songs titled rehab before getting to this quote for those that don't know, Amy song was a smash hit. The catch is part of the song which you could literally hear people singing along to when walking down the street was they tried to make me go to rehab. And I said, no, no, no. I remember exactly where I was. When I first heard this song, Chelsea New York twenty third street. I felt weird like, yeah, I don't know a better word than that feeling weird when listening, maybe it's my own struggles with mental health. But wine houses song quite clearly is about a person saying. They should be getting help, but aren't however, like most, I can't say this stop me from listening to the song instead I did so endlessly director Asif Kapadia in the interview, I read said the following about Amy's thoughts. I don't think she liked the song. It's dark and it's a cry for help. I think she was surprised. It became a hit. The trouble was already there, but that's when it really kicked off that song becomes, I think the thing that she hated people wanted her to sing it and she singing it with a drink. In her hand, it's a cry for help every time she says, no, she saying yes. Oh shit. I thought in retrospect I was or I am part of the problem. I was one of many celebrating a song about a person badly hurting and pleading for help. So I tracked down also on Twitter, asked if he could semi his Email, he was kind enough to respond in. I emailed him. I set up a time and called him for an interview. But off in the kindest way, possible said he wouldn't take part. I'm not quoting him, but he was okay with me, relaying his thoughts from the notes I took while respo- his reason for not wanting to be part of the podcast was simple and left me wondering why I was doing this episode at all. Awesome. Has made it a rule of his not to talk about the quote unquote twenty-seven club. He believes this concept has somehow made it seem like it's cool to be an artist and diet twenty-seven. When in reality, it's obviously horrific. Any reference to the club, even if well, intentioned will further the romanticizing of this fake club that is simply put tragic. I'm not kidding that when he told me this, I was kind of angry myself. I felt terrible. If you do is simple. Google search of the twenty seven club, you'll get photos that don't show the reality of each musician's death at twenty-seven. Instead, you see cartoons. Or paintings of the six musicians hanging out in heaven or talking over a card game or seated as if that the last supper you see photos of them like they're in the Brady bunch smiling smoking or playing music being part of a club incensio celebration. Exactly. Like how I started this episode, she'll music the group hanging out focused on artwork. I now really was part of the problem. I thought of forgetting about this episode and doing something else. I want to take a quick break to thank one of our great partners who really make this podcast possible as many of you know, I spend most of my time working. I don't really like to do much else reading writing recording. Repeat. So what happens when this is the case, you don't really get furniture. I lived two years. This is true. I live two years in an apartment once with only a mattress. No fridge, no rug. No girlfriend anyway, my current place. Well, something wildly unexpected happened now.

Slash w. r. h. to get fifty dollars off your first purchase of one hundred dollars or more. I thought of forgetting about this episode and doing something else, but I I wanted to spend a bit more time going through my research. I came across the work of Diana Theodora Kenny. Dr. Kenny has a degree in pretty much everything. She's primarily a psychologist and researcher as well as professor at the university of Sydney. Dr. Kenny is the author of over two hundred publications including seven books. She was curious about this twenty-seven club and did her own study with a few colleagues. Dr Kenny used over two hundred sources and studied over eleven thousand pop musicians from nineteen fifty to twenty fourteen her findings. Well, if anything, perhaps there should be a fifty six club. Eddie rabbit, Tammy Wynette Mimi Farina, Johnny Ramone Chris Ledoux van smokey Hampton and Charles baby Tate. All died at fifty six in terms of that twenty. Seven year old bump according to Dr Kenny study. One point two percent of the over eleven thousand musicians in her study died at twenty six years old. One point four percent died at twenty eight. And one point three percent died at twenty seven. So again, one point, two percent at twenty six years old. One point, four percent at twenty eight years old. And one point, three percent at twenty seven years old different studies on this have had different outcomes. But I do believe that the more focused and the more precise the study, the results are the twenty-seven isn't really all that different. Even Howard soons would go onto explain the limits of his own study so opposed to moving forward. I took another step back and looked at the years. The main six had died, Brian Jones, Jimi Hendrix, Janice Joplin, and Jim Morrison, all died between nineteen sixty nine and nineteen seventy-one. That's four of these six. Members dying over the course of two years. In fact, Hendrix Joplin died within two weeks of each other. So what was happening during that time period? Singers, like Frank Sinatra and Tom Jones were at the peak of their careers during the nineteen sixties and sold millions of records. It was the second half of the decade which saw the emergence of rock music, including psychedelic rock. Michael Hicks, author of sixties rock garage psychedelic, and other satisfactions defines the John Jonah as one which excavates and enhances the mind, altering experiences of psychedelic drugs. Most notably LSD. This music was personal and introspective for one of the first times in pop culture history, the masses were talking about suffering and pain. Musicians were exploring their subconscious more and using drugs to do so us editions and record company saw that the. Doug culture sold people, particularly young people, loved it. It was celebrated. There was the human being during the winter of sixty seven and that summer was the summer of love and all reached historic heights during the nineteen sixty nine Woodstock festival. With that in mind, it's not so hard to believe that during this time four of the most famous rock and roll musicians died in their late twenties while enormously popular. It wasn't until twenty years later that his concept of a twenty-seven club came up. Again. This was in one thousand nine hundred four when Cobain committed suicide Kurt had a history of mental health issues and so does family he had attempted suicide before turning twenty-seven. It seems to me it was a convenient and easy way to put him a unique and brilliant artist into this twenty-seven club. This constructed group. Of course, the term found itself again on the headlines of papers. Around the world when Amy wine-house died about fifteen years later, what is perhaps less exciting to talk about an examine is why musicians and artists are dying at this relatively young age. And if there's anything to be done as it turns out I've learned there is research that shows how our perception of the late twenties is misunderstood or at least was misunderstood by me until the last eighteen months. While I thought of a twenty seven year old as a fully formed adult research shows. Otherwise with the help of Heather Sherman, I reached out to Dr Robert McIntyre, a professor of psychiatry and pharmacology at the university of Toronto and head of the mood disorders psychopharmacology unit at the University Health network. The old notion that we had in neuro science or brain science for a long time was that, you know, after you go through your adolescence in reach early adulthood, the brain have. There's the brain that you're stuck with and we've moved away from that very outdated anachronistic notion to a more comprehensive, coherent Egmore scientific. The informed notion that the brain really is this plastic mutable, changeable organism Dr McIntyre added, but even your mid twenties, for example, early thirties, there's still the capacity to generate from early progenitor or early sort of undifferentiated cells brain cells. These brain cells are not just sort of a hearing, but they're also a functioning. So these are new mature adult brain cells that have a functional relevance to people. When it comes to drugs, we'd has a bigger effect on our minds than previously thought. We know the cannabis exposure, specifically THC gnawing in developing brain can be highly toxic, can induce psychosis in those who I've risk. But typically in the. A younger brain that is people under the age of twenty five still on the age of twenty. What Dr Kenny did find in our research was that pop artists lifespans were up to twenty five years shorter than the average American accidental death rates were between five and ten times greater suicide rates were between two and seven times greater and homicide rates were up to eight times greater than the US population after publishing her study, Dr Kenny concluded. This is clear evidence that all is not well in pop music land. Why is the so the pop music scene fails to provide boundaries and to model and expect acceptable behavior? It actually does the reverse. It valorize is outrageous behavior and the acting out of aggressive, sexual and destructive impulses. The most of a stair only live out in fantasy the music industry needs to consider these findings to discover ways of recognizing and assisting young musicians. Distress at the very least those who make their livings from these young people need to learn to recognize early signs of emotional distress, crisis, depression, and suicide -ality, and to put some support systems in place to provide the necessary assistance and care in regards to Jimmy's death in those around him, Charles r cross said he didn't have a one person kinda checking up on him in the end. Both Jimmy's managers are dead. Now, you know there's no, you know, really way to say it other than to some degree to me, death ends up being the responsibility of his managers. I think that ultimately ends up being a lot of the story of rock history. Many times these stars are using drugs. The managers are well aware of it and Jimmy case in all likelihood, one of his managers, Michael Jeffries was probably supplying drugs to Jimmy at times that gave him a level of control. Jim. Death. In some ways we blame on the manager. If you're a rock manager, the worst thing you can do is let your client die. And sadly, that ends up being the case in more than a few of these rock. Lots ultimately, I've discovered that there isn't any club. What you do have is six artists who were faced with a great deal of success and turmoil in a very short period of time. They also faced fame drug and alcohol addiction money, or at least people with money, a lack of foundational support the trappings that can come with being an artist and all of this. Well, their brains were still forming. When you look at this infamous club, four of these main members died over the course of only two years during a time period in which drugs were rampant and largely celebrated. Unlike us of who directed the documentary on Amy wine house. I clearly opted to talk about the twenty seven club. I don't think there is the right approach. There's a larger debate to be had about whether or not addressing this club helps or hurt the cause of addressing the larger problem. It only takes a very quick search to see that Rolling Stone magazine BBC the Washington Post and endless other respectable news outlets to fairly obscure blogs have written at length about this term and its members without also mentioning the terms flaws, oftentimes getting lost in some sort of romanticised recounting of those who've passed for now. I don't think there are enough voices pointing out why this term is in fact, offensive and has nothing to do with a PC culture. It has to do with facts, not adding up and being sensitive. When we talk about mental health issues and alcohol IX or drug addicts, would I think would be a step in the right direction is to bring attention to this because to this day. When you hear about a public figure who dies at twenty seven years old, you'll read headlines that they are joining a club, but that is not what really happened. Next week on what really happened. The nine hundred ninety four. The president of Russia Boris Yeltsin was discovered by the secret service in Washington DC on Pennsylvania Avenue. He was extremely drunk wearing only underwear yelling for CAD and demanding pizza. President Clinton would do his best to help his friend President Yeltsin with his drinking problems. But in the decades since the American and Russian relationship has taken severe turns that's next week on what really happened.

Our oldest appeals, Rebecca Robes says Marvin Gaye. Donald Glover. He. I could see that I think Marvin Gaye was kind of tall or maybe he's just tall in my mind. I can never tell how tall celebrities are. It's always a shot semi. You know he was six one donald. Glover is he's kind of a short stuff in the out. Yeah, I think. So He's He's listed as five nine. That means he's five seven. Are we saying that that a lot of like singers short the you went to the Rock Hall of fame and the. Like children's clothes. Yeah. Where rare is the Billy Corgan?

Let me see here. Becca Lou says, do the actors need to sing that? Makes it slightly harder I mean you know it's usually better if you're not lip sync in my opinion, Catherine Reitman is Amy Wine House Donald Glover if were taller see there. but she'll go with Michael Jordan. Now, I think Donald Glover. And then Cara. Delve in in. As Madonna. Who are these people horrid. Binge. And how do you spell any of their names? Oh well I, do know. Against Pretty. Amount model actress and. Singer. She looks like Madonna enough. I mean castle. She's prettier than Madonna she's scattered real smoky I situation going on. Like. Oh she's.

Top van pal, Jennifer mudge the monster says Marvin Gaye. Ali if he can sing Amy House. Aubrey Plaza. Woo. I'll. Be. I'll be I'll love Aubrey Plaza but. I've never seen her do anything like that. Let's say she can't. So it's so funny. It's sort of become like of the new thing that like you know actors playing Do their own singing. That's that's much more of a modern development. Yeah, used to be all lip Lipson all the time. Yeah. I think it's just because that shit doesn't fly anymore with audience until he just doesn't look good does not look it not a good look and then for my Donna imaging boots, I could see that.

Don was on one of our old pals says Don cheadle for Marvin Gaye. Well. He's pretty great macy Williams for amy wine, house, and Kristen Bell. As Madonna.

He had pretty woman that's a movie that just still resonates I think with a lot of people. especially, especially, ladies very good movie. Of its time no. I'll probably haven't seen a heavy which one. Pretty woman. You know that's one of those ones that have probably seen like little snippets of enough to complete the full run of the movie but I've never liked sat through pretty woman You probably wouldn't like it I might why? Why do you think that about me chuck I I have very click taste it's I know but it's not very Noli it's I don't know I sent the fact that you figured out what that is whatever that means I don't like meet a bucks don't put baby in the corner I'd that's from a movie to that probably wouldn't like all right no go watch pretty woman. I. WanNa next week Dan. I want hear your view a pretty woman a segment called knoll reviews pretty woman. Oh that's great. I love this. All right yes I'm in. Start calling you out on your bullshit streaming. I. Refused to pay even a dollar for this piece of. Pay You back for pretty one week inexpensive. All right, fair. I don't expense any of the movies I should do that. I probably spend three hundred dollars a year on work movie. She's need to get that back. All right. Now, we're GONNA finish up with the little stream this we haven't done that in a little while I am just very quickly I'm watching high maintenance is my late night show As you know sometimes late night before I, go to bed like a thirty minute show of something and that has varied over the years and Almost. enemy watching high maintenance. It's the best show ever and still are that you don't watch it because it's so you even though apparently, I don't even know who you are. You know I am chuck for more podcast from iheartradio visited. Or wherever you listen to your. The first few episodes and I was into and I just fell off because there's other stuff but I really do want to watch I. Know People are quite fond of it. I am surprised that you have fallen off that show. That's a tough show to fall off a bye. Okay. Okay. That ambulance. But you know it's just real life man the successes. Hold for ambulance it's whole. I meant it. It's coming for me. No, you see me on the floor Oh. God. No I'm sorry I'm looking at this I'm looking at Google's. So dark is great. It's If if you haven't watched, don't know about it out there and listener land, it's German show on net flicks You have a version that you can watch the subtitled or dubbed. Please watch the subtitled version because that's the only way to go apparently the dubbed version they been changed the dialogue to try to get match and so if you want the real deal one, the subtitle version it is great it is very indeed dark it's got a very creepy awesome score it is about time travel and missing children and different timelines and different eras in. It is very, very convoluted and a bit tough to follow you have to dig in and do your homework. And really pay attention. If you're going to get into dark and I will say this, there's a website that one of the crushers termi onto from Netflix's official site where you can kind of chart the family tree of all these characters and how they interact and the different versions of the different characters from different areas really really really helps and You can do it by episode so it doesn't spoil anything so. Check it out. It's great. emily and I are you know have been into watching very fair through the pandemic because it's helped a lot to watch this light comedy stuff. But for some reason, dark is doing it for us right now even though it's super super dark. I'll get back into a nice recommendation. The leftovers chuck. No and that is one that is on my list to to do one day. It's fucking awesome. It's. Too dark like I mean not I don't know I just mean it's sort of one of those loss d type shows the central mystery. There's a lot of things that take me a minute to figure out but this one actually really delivers and it's got a lot of humor, a lot of drama and a lot of like amazing performances and I I just loved every minute and it's one of the rare shows that just gets better like the second season is better than the first season the third season's better than the second season. And there's three I think there's three total. Yes. Yeah. There are three seasons of dark as well, and the one of the reasons I decided to watch it was because when the finale came out, it was roundly lauded as one of the more. Satisfying wrap-ups for these kinds of shows, and you gotta stick the landing and apparently they stick the landing. So can't wait can't wait. We're barreling through it. We're almost done with season actually. All, right that's it for me know unless you want talk about something you've been watching lately Let's see. No I have been watching vice principals on HBO. Max, and so I just I. Think it's amazing. I I I know that vibe that Danny McBride thing isn't for everybody. And it certainly remaining spirited but God, it's for me I love these pounding down. I didn't finish righteous gemstones, but I'm going to get back into but this one I binged it in like a week or so and yacking Walton Goggin do is like. maniacal southern kind of like, oh, he's. He's one of the best F bombers in movies. He says the Word Fuck. Like better. He rivals Sam Jackson. I think yeah and his his fuck kary. fucking. Are, now, it's an art really. Is Marc Maron is really good. He's a Georgia guy he's a champion Hog Holler you talk about that American I don't think so but he had a really interesting childhood he did he'd like a terry gross or something and he's apparently a champion Hog Holler, which is basically when you go soo and then the. Come running and that's called the Hog Dole have you really know? Have you run a trot line? Can you skin? I can't do any of those shit. You couldn't pay me to skin a buck gross. A joke. I don't even like doing it in red, dead redemption I sure. Did you see that update that broke everything now? It's back to normal. It was pretty funny. They issued an update. Do that literally broke the game like? Horses were hovering and flying around nods Larry. Videos. All kinds of videoclips it's hysterical like it was literally unplayable and you know, Rockstar they don't even usually issue statements but they issued one finally were like we understand something's wrong for some players not like we completely fucked everything up and then they completely pulled the update a few days later, which is a really big deal like usually companies don't do that. They'll tryin patch it or fix it and they're like Let's just forget this happened for now. That's very funny. That is pretty funny. All, right. That's it for me. I. AM.

Very much people with shopowners or shop employs when you walk in. They greet you they say Hello on young Hocine and the say it usually allowed strident tone. And I thought I was saying whatever the proper response was. And so I walk in these people say Hello. And then I would say I would do my bit increase in which I do not speak. And then they were switched to English and ask me if I needed help if it needs a look for anything, and I thought, okay, sure, my Crean's, admittedly, garbage. It wasn't until I was driving back rose writing back to the airport when the cabdriver asked me had I learned any Crean's like, oh, yeah. Yeah. I know this this and when people say Hello, I say this the any stops. And he goes, oh, man. You haven't been doing that? Have you said, you know, what that means? So what?

But when you say on a roll like that seems a little blue Ben seems a little blue. I'm sorry. Yeah. We went blue limb. Blue you never go blue. When she go blue. We should just do the episode. So yeah, it's kind of an unconventional war hero about us. And his particular flavor of bad assery involved singlehandedly, largely singlehandedly fending off a wave. Of Chinese forces.

He was watching the British forces in the allies take on access powers. This inspired him. He joined the army in nineteen forty five which means that he just barely missed the conflicts of World War Two. Yeah. He was part of an admittedly like game of thrones ask sounding order called the Black Watch Royal Highland regiments. And then as was his wish he ended up joining the king's own Scottish borders. Ears. And that is the outfit that he served with in Korea. The king's own Scottish borderers does sound like a bad name. Really does you know so Bill big Bill goes to the Korean peninsula to take part in the Korean war? What's the Korean war? Great question. The Korean war is this back and forth struggle that has not yet officially ended which is crazy was a ceasefire. And they have you know, they have consistently not fired. But there was no formal peace treaty. And it was a war that had so many ideological underpinnings because it was essentially this conflict between communism and capitalism and the United States got involved because it was they looked at it as very much a war against the forces of communism's ideological war. And then the in China has always been a staunch supporter of North Korea. And even though that. Makes for some funny bedfellows with us in China relationship with them, and that's one of the reasons we can't just go in to North Korea and mess things up because that would totally torpedo our relationship with China. We can't have that. Yes. This was a proxy war. Also called a limited war wherein the superpowers of the world picked a third country. So that they were way g actual war each other soil, and they fought their war there. Terrible terrible thing for the people who live in that third country. Right. So this war began June twenty fifth nineteen fifty and it went back and forth for a time. The South Korean forces were on the precipice of losing this struggle in October of nineteen fifty hundreds of thousands of Chinese soldiers entered the border and the capital of Korea Seoul would change hands. What four times during the struggle? Yeah. What is the thirty eighth parallel? Ben. That's a great question. The thirty eighth parallel existed originally as the boundary between the Soviet and American occupation zones in Japan, but in nineteen forty eight it also became the boundary between the Democratic People's Republic of Korea DPRK, aka North Korea, and the are okay or South Korea at the time, as you know, they both claim to be the legitimate governments of the entire peninsula. And this this changed a little bit when they signed their armistice agreement in nineteen fifty three. But we'll we'll get into that later. The important part is as as we established that the thirty eighth parallel is where things reached a stalemate, right? Enter big Bill, speak Mun. He's twenty four years old. He's full of them vigor, bright eyed, bushy tailed and third. Sti to serve his country. So as he said he volunteers in Korea, and when he is volunteering to engage in this conflict. It's still very much anyone's game going back and forth. Soul is being captured recaptured and he transfers to was the name of that group. You mentioned earlier the king's own Scottish borderers to he transfers to them expressly to join the fight in Korea. He wants to see actual field service. And boy does he ever because nine hundred fifty one speak men's battalion was up defending position on Marianne sawn in Korea. And that is when six thousand Chinese soldiers laid siege. And we're trying to remove them from that position and takeover. No, no. I have some great news for you. You know, how you're always.

The defending talian is coming under increasingly aggressive in dangerous, mortar fire and artillery, and that is followed by a wave of Chinese troops advancing from their positions. They attack the Commonwealth trenches and by little bit before six in the morning, five forty five or so the sides of entered malay- hand to hand combat. Yeah, I'm confused about this. So why were they doing hand to hand combat? Why weren't they shooting at each other? Because they got close enough to sue the the mortar fire, and the artillery it smack in the tar out of the Commonwealth troops got while. They're on the defensive the soldiers are getting close enough to this trench warfare. It's essentially going over the top kind of situation. Right, right. So. So they couldn't shoot from you know, from like a a rifle position an individual walking position. You can't shoot into the trench easily that makes sense. So when we say hand to hand we are talking largely about I mean that just that there's fists involved there's hand-grenades involve knives. There's chucking any thing that you can get your hands on involved in that becomes a big part of the story. So fry big Bill speak Mun is prepping hand-grenades when he hears a message over the radio saying that two groups have been overrun two platoons and that the ridge may fall into enemy hands. So he gets the band back together. Gathers up whomever is closest to hands out grenades and says, let's go and there's this quote in an article from the independent that has speak speaking describing the scene like this. He says it was hand to hand. There was no time to pull back. The bolt of the rifle. It was November the ground was hard so grenades bounced and did damage initially think of like a video game called borderlands where you could get different Mods for your grenades and one of them made them like bouncing grenades. So they would like literally bounce off of things and then explode continuously. I know this is not kind of scifi situation. That's here. What would that? Why would a bouncing grenade? Do more damage. I'm trying to picture that because it only blows up once. So I guess we're speculating would say that the bounce puts in a different position. You know, sorta like kidding hitting a cool trick shot on a pool table. Maybe it gets makes go farther to you can literally nounce off the ground is cold and frozen. You could bounce it off. And then it would go farther. Yes. And if you're just chucking tons of them than it would just creat absolute havoc. So he's got his group of six men who have joined him in collecting piles of grenades and throwing them right at the enemy forces. It's important to say that speak Mun does this on his own initiative. He's not ordered to do. So he gets hit in the leg because wars ugly nasty dangerous thing, but he keeps fighting any holds back the Chinese forces long enough for those platoons that were overrun to vacuum. Their wounded any keeps going we'll never know how long he would keep going. He didn't stop until he was directly ordered to get his leg looked at. But in the meantime, when they ran of grenades, he started just grabbing whatever he could get his hands on and in these days the troops were allowed to have some beers. They had a whole kind of pile of empty beer bottles. And he. Was able to kind of create a diversion just by hurling beer bottles at the oncoming opposition. And probably didn't actually kill anybody hurt anybody too badly. But it certainly would have been annoying and certainly would have caused a distraction. Right. I mean, it's the thought that counts. Absolutely reminds me of that story we did about the Americans throwing potatoes at a u boat. Yep. Yep. That really happened. It was it was perhaps exaggerated in later Retailing's. But it did happen. There's there's a great article of war history. Online by Jeff Edwards about this story about big Bill speak men, and it confirms that he did indeed through these beer bottles. This this story gets a little bit exaggerated. Sometimes because you'll hear people say that he just started throwing everything he could grenades. Beer, bottles. Empty rash? Intends? Pencils small woodland creatures kitchen? Silverware cricket bats and his own. Well, will edit this for the air his own blink meaty fist that comes from the great website bad ass of the week dot com, which I highly highly highly recommend he did through more than grenades and more than beer bottles to through ration tins threw stones and this did work the press loved this. By the way, they started calling Bill speak men the beer bottle V C. And I don't know. I don't know if you saw this partial, he hated that nickname. What is seeming? That's a big part of the story to that's the Victorian cross. I yes, the Victorian cross CT also little bit about that. Yeah. Victorian crosses the highest military honor in in the United Kingdom. It is a warded for unparalleled bravery in the heat of battle and was first awarded in eighteen fifty seven by Queen Victoria. She presented them to sixty two soldiers. In front of about one hundred thousand people at Hyde Park, and it is gone on to remain the highest military honor that one can receive and Bill speak men got it right away. Because this story caught the public's imagination. He really was incredibly brave and hear him talk about it. He's like, yeah. You know, it was just doing what I was trying to do. So. Yeah, it's it's rarified air. Indeed, the medals been awarded one thousand three hundred fifty eight times, but only fifteen medals have been awarded since World War Two. And if I'm not mistaken, this would have been the first VC to be awarded by the current Queen Queen Elizabeth the second. Yes, that's correct. So he loved his country loved being of VC recipient. He did not care in any shape form or fashion to be referred to as the beer bottle VC because he thought it. Made the army look bad. He thought the implication people would get from this was that he and his colleagues were drinking on the job. And they weren't weird. Fact, you know, what they use the beer for? No, they used it to cool down gun barrels. Apparently, I didn't know that. I did not know that either I still I mean, if you are listening, and you or one of your relatives was in the Korean war or associated with it. Let us know if that's true because it sounds like a convenient excuse, you know, what I mean? Sorry, Sarge we're not this beers. And for drinking these guns just get so gosh darn hot. It's true though, Ben they do get pretty hot. And you know, these kind of situations require thinking on your feet using what you have around as evidenced by this whole situation which made him one of the national hero, basically. And he returned back to his home town of altruism in Cheshire, and he was beloved there was a parade for him. Before he got home people had like cleaned his house for him. And he was treated very differently, and he didn't particularly care for it. He did not adjust very well to life as a civilian and he reenlisted pretty quickly. Yeah. Yep. He went on to serve in the army until nineteen sixty seven. He served in the Indonesia confrontation the aid in emergency the Malayan emergency in twenty fifteen. He made a return trip to South Korea along with other veterans of the war. And when he was there he donated his Victoria cross to South Korea. He believed it started there. And he thought it was sensible to leave it there. And I believe he had a replica made that he gave to North Korea. Dizzy, yeah. Yeah. Right. Because you know, you wanna be fair. Technology truth brought to DIKO. Truth. You will certainly send any text your supervisor to your supervisor. What's Janet's fangs? Did she lose that? With a weed whacker? Sint wait. No, no, no truth. It's so easy to switch and save on car insurance at geiko dot com. Janet, I think my phone was hacked or something. Go fifteen minutes could save you fifteen percents or more. What's interesting here is that the Victoria cross he donates the South Korea is not replica, but it is a replacement. You see so many veterans of wars speak men was lauded at the beginning. But later fell on financial hardship. Right. And he sold his original Victoria, cross using the money to put a new roof on his house and only later was given a genuine replacement not to mention that in nineteen sixty eight he was actually given an absolute discharge from the service because he was arrested in Edinburgh for stealing hundred four pounds from a woman's purse. And it was likely only his, you know, lauded military career that kept him out of jail. Right. And he was never really comfortable with this. This. Geraldo ick image wasn't comfortable being a-walking icon. We've got a quote from an interview he did with the BBC around the time. He went to South Korea. He said it started to dawn on me as the days went by stopping in the street. No matter what where you went in altern cham- people were trying to do things for you. I didn't realize why it's got the V C, really. Because I only did what the other guys did we fought? And that's what we're trained to do. So he wasn't into the, you know, the ego boost the hero worship stuff, and she didn't want people to think that he was some raging violent drunk now carousing in careening throughout the Korean war. He was a guy with a job, and he did it as seriously as he could even when that involved throwing rocks and stones and ration tins, which technically depending on whether the tens were empty or full could make this food fight. That's very true. He only just. Recently passed away in June of twenty eighteen at the age of ninety. He had immigrated to South Africa several times and come back, but then ultimately returned to the UK to Chelsea which is where he passed away at the Royal hospital in Chelsea, yes, it's a retirement home nursing home for round three hundred veterans of the British army and with the passing of Bill, speak Mun. We see the end of his story. His his part is small part of the Korean war, which as we record this episode today. Still technically continues the two countries sharing that peninsula and East Asia have not made piece of but it is an eternal hope for the people and the governments of both sides. That was like the safest most diplomatic way to say. I think that's very smart to keep no diplomacy is key here band. Diplomacy is and you've been to South Korea twice. Yeah. Yeah. I am probably going back later this year, actually, really. Yeah. It's the thing. No big fan. All right. I mean, you just find yourself in situations. I guess we'll make sure to bring me another half. That's become our tradition now, do you? Yeah. I'm glad you appreciate very much. So see you gotta go sometime if if you get the chance.

What Happens to Donated Blood?

Very badly is available now posted by me. Jake Brennan, you can listen to disgrace. Then the I heart radio app apple podcasts or wherever you get your podcasts. Welcome to brain stuff from how stuff works. Hey, brain stuff, Lauren Vogel bomb. Here. This episode talks about blood donation. So if that's the kind of thing that makes you go on and skip it, okay? Every two seconds in the United States someone somewhere needs a blood transfusion. And let's face it. Money of us. Don't consider giving blood until there's a major disaster where donations are needed. But just one donation has the potential to save up to three lives. On average. When you donate blood, you provide about one pint that's about half liter of whole blood, which is called a unit of blood and for reference that's about sixteen ounces or the size of a large coffee. But in the US alone. There's a need for almost thirty six thousand units of blood every day. So it's excellent for those who can donate to do. So, but have you ever wondered what actually happens after your blood is drawn for donation where does it go, and how is the process tracked for safety and security? We'll break it down step one is collection. When you donate blood. It's collected a special bag, and luckily, if you test tubes that were developed with an antiquated prevent the blood from clotting each bag and test tube is assigned the same unique ID number to ensure that the collected blood can be properly tracked in eventually labeled then the blood is placed on ice before it sent to the lab for testing. Next the bags and test. Tubes of blood are packaged in boxes specially made to keep blood at the right temperature until it can reach laboratories for step to processing the test tube. Samples are sent off to the lab for testing to be sure the blood is safe and to determine the blood type in the US, the FDA regulates blood testing collection and blood components through center for biologics evaluation and research while that blood is being tested, a blood processing center, verifies receipt of the whole blood sort of like tracking package from post office through delivery. The bloods, ideas checked in at every step of the way. Next, the units of whole blood or separated into specific components. The separation process, which is called component therapy is accomplished by spinning the blood and a centrifuge the heavy red cells fall to the bottom and the blood is divided into trance fusible components red cells platelets and plasma the plasma might even be processed further. For instance, plasma can be separated into crow precipitate called crow for short, which helps control the risk of bleeding by helping blood clot. The red blood cells plasma and platelets are then heat sealed in bags to ensure they remain sterile and the components are stored while they wait for their test results plasma in cryan contain proteins that are pretty stable. So they can be frozen for up to a year negative twenty seven degrees Fahrenheit, that's negative thirty three celsius. Red cells are more delicate and have to be refrigerated, but can be kept for up to forty two days as long as they're held at forty two degrees Fahrenheit that six degrees celsius platelets must be used within five days and are stored at room temperature in agitators that rock them back and forth until they're transfused into a patient. Through all of this. The blood processing center is still tracking the donation including manufacturing data. What centrifuge was used to separate the blood? And what time the work was performed once they get an okay on the blood tests from the lab, the components are ready to be deployed they print labels with information, including the blood type and expiration dates, which they then affixed to the bags if the blood is deemed unsafe during the testing, it's tagged with discard labeled complete the tracking cycle when a hospital or treatment center places in order for blood or plasma components are shipped off in temperature safe boxes when they arrived, the medical staff, double checks them for safety. And finally, they're ready to be transfused into the patient who needs them the entire donation to shipping process can take up to three days, which doesn't seem like a long time. In till there's a major disaster or blood shortage. The American Red Cross says blood supply usually keep up with demand because only about three percent of people eligible to donate actually do. That's why it's such a boon to donate if you can especially if you're a universal donor with type O-negative blood. This can be transfused into any patient with any blood type the American Red Cross estimates about forty five percent of people in the US have typo blood. But the overwhelming majority of those people are positive, which is lucky for them because it means that donated components are more likely to match their common type. But it also means that just seven percent of people are type O-negative that universal donor.

Music: The 27 Club
"The music drifted between the patrons of the Juke and caressed their arms and legs until everyone in the hall stopped opt gyrations they fell into a trance and focused solely on the man playing the guitar. The night was humid and the crowded room only helped to choke the air sweat beat it on their foreheads ads and trickle down their arms but it was not the sweat of a day's labor long forgotten by now it was the sweat of joy they were lucky to glimpse the nomadic rubber Johnson as he serenaded aided them with a perfect balance of somber reflection and energetic riffs. His fingers danced across guitar. If the patrons closed their eyes they would swear a full band was the evening's entertainment but when they open them again they only saw the five foot eight Johnson with his lean frame and distant is his voice screeched and shrank polling at something between them that they didn't know was there polling until the thing came loose like a rotten tooth long aching in the back of their mouths and suddenly the pain was gone. The patrons eyes glazed over tears navigated through the sweat dotted on their cheeks wives reached out and place their hands on their husbands arms and the husband's shoulders relaxed and dropped from there hunched position releasing the weight of sorrow that they had been carrying for months and just like that it was over Johnson thanked his audience and they took to socializing again. Johnson's most recent love interest a woman named Beatrice pushed her way eight through the crowd but when she reached him she dared not embrace him or betray herself lest the wrong pair of eyes report the offense to her husband instead she handed him a bottle of whiskey. You're a bottle that unbeknownst to them both had been prepared by the estranged cuckold so Robert UNCAPPED and drank deep his love of whiskey was near as great as his love of women the next evening the crowd came to the plantation where he was staying to ask him to play but he said he wasn't feeling right three days later he died. They put him in a cheap wooden coffin and buried him under a large pecan tree. He was only twenty seven he had only recorded twenty nine songs but his legacy and the legend of his curse would live on forever. Welcome to the dark side of apar- cast original a show where we will delve into the seedy underbelly of pop culture icons finds and historical events we aim to expose the ugly truth behind cultural moments and public figures we hold most dear proving that there is always more to the story than meets the eye era episode today is unique in that we switching our point of focus for the past eight weeks we dove into the dark side of Hollywood but for our next ten episodes we are going to change gears and look into the dark side of the music industry. The business has especially especially in the last century been synonymous with some of the most sordid aspects of our society from rampant drug use to the exploitative creation of popstars too brutal violence and murder. The industry can be volatile blend dangerous environment today. We're beginning our discussion by looking at the twenty seven club the name given to a group of ultra talented musicians who unfortunately met an early demise at the age of twenty seven by looking at this specific group we aim to give a general overview of the hazardous side of the musical world ben over our ten episodes series. We will continue this exploration uncovering. Some of the most fascinating thing and menacing aspects of the music business will look at the tyrannical and lethal rule of Shug night over death row records Elvis Presley's twisted obsession with death and the physical and emotional abuse inflicted on today's K pop stars ars at podcast. We're grateful for you our listeners you will allow us to do what we love. Let us know how we're doing reach out on facebook and Instagram at par cast and twitter at podcast network and if you enjoy today's episode owed the best way to help us is to leave a five star review wherever you're listening. It really does help us. When Jim Morrison lead singer of the doors they died on July third nineteen seventy-one it marked the fourth time in exactly two years that a twenty seven year old musical superstar died suddenly when Kurt cobain and amy wine house were added it to the list in nineteen ninety four and two thousand eleven the world began to consider if this was more than just a coincidence the group was coined the twenty seven club a colloquial albeit morbid term to classify classify the number of celebrities particularly musicians that died at the age of twenty seven the idea of the twenty-seven club received enough attention that a number of statisticians looked into the mystery? The results swale not necessarily exciting where unsurprising twenty-seven-year-old musicians die slightly more than twenty six year olds and slightly less than twenty eight year olds meaning that about as many musicians die at twenty any seven as you would expect and yet stigma of the club persisted the primary members were too big and too famous their experiences to similar to avoid the temptation of grouping them together Amy wine-house Kurt Cobaine Jim Morrison Jimi Hendrix Janice Joplin Brian Jones and Robert Johnson are the primary members mentioned every one of these musicians was in the prime of their career pioneers hi in years of their industry with enough artistic moxie that it would be no hyperbole to call each and everyone a genius their deaths were tragic. It was as though the world was robbed of performers that had just started to hit the pinnacle of their creative abilities. There's no denying that each of them at the time of their death had incredibly destructive tendencies but if we pulled back the curtain of their lives we revealed that they're more detrimental qualities ladies were exacerbated by the volatile and exploitative nature of the music industry as a whole while there has been no correlation between the age of twenty seven and increased risk of death. There is a correlation between the music industry and early death in general Dr Dianna t Kenny a professor of psychology and music at the University of Sydney found that between nineteen fifty and two thousand fourteen popular musicians average lifespan was up to twenty five years shorter than the General U._S.. Population on top of this she found that deaths from accidents suicides and homicides were several times more more likely for popular musicians. This opens up an uncomfortable reality. The music industry is not only toxic and psychologically taxing. It is also deadly. This is why the twenty seven club stands out as a cultural phenomenon because it highlights the dangers of the music industry the destructive forces and explosive personalities the tempestuous experiment of mixing the most creative and insightful minds our society has to offer with the cold indifference of industry and the emotional taxation of fame and publicity. This forces us to ask a very uncomfortable but fascinating question is the music industry a monster that creates incredibly destructive people or are the most destructive personalities the most attracted to the prospect of creating music to explore this question. We're going to unpack the main seven members members of the twenty-seven club but we are going to do so in a unique way because each of these artists could have several podcasts about them. We've chosen to split our exploration into seven parts in the life for a young musician. These are childhood adolescence the formation of a band love burnout death and afterlife while all seven of these members faced difficulties in each facet facet of their existence by focusing on specific periods for each musician. We aim to show that they're tragedies are somewhat interchangeable and demonstrate. The vice like grip music can have over a person for their entire. Entire lives are first part is childhood and in many ways Jim Morrison was always a child albeit a very intellectual one while Morrison did not particularly have the worst upbringing of the main twenty-seven twenty seven club members it certainly was one of the most influential on his later years. Nothing exemplified this more than an incident in August of nineteen sixty six at the legendary Los Angeles nightclub whisky <unk> go only a year removed from college. A twenty two year old Morrison and his newly formed band called the doors had landed a Gig as the house band. This break carried them for several months and unusual but fortunate start for such a fresh group on August twenty first the doors went through their usual routine playing their elongated psychedelic version of jazz rock while Morrison spouted out his poetic spoken word jargon then they played aide the end a song that lays out the end of some sort of saga in Morrison's life that is until the last verse Morrison in front of Filled Room that included the club's owner Filton Zini Sing zing shouted into the microphone that he wanted to murder his father and have sex with his mother. The stunned crowd reeled and fell silent. They looked at each other wondering how to react wondering what what to do with such intimate information fill Tanzania fired the doors on the spot when pressed on the lyrics of the end in nineteen sixty nine interview with Rolling Stone Morrison at I explained it as just the recreation of the oedipus myth the tragic Greek hero who accidentally murdered his father and marries his mother but then Morrison Strangely backtracked and made the sentiment more personal. He said I could see how it could be goodbye to a kind of childhood. I really don't know I think it sufficiently complex and universal in its imagery that it could be almost anything you want it to be if anything this sounds like inner turmoil that even Morrison didn't understand but where did this turmoil come from Morrison's father. George was a rear admiral in the navy and as a rigid military man the family moved often when he was also rarely home leaving Jim as the oldest child to act as a father figure in the household this created a strange dynamic between Jim and his mother Clara who often fought more like spouses than mother and son but Jim would also act out an incredibly petty and childish ways as an early teen in the mid nineteen fifties he had a penchant for toilet humor and an obnoxious addiction to pranks he would shoot spitballs at strangers pick his nose in public and make lewd remarks. This horrified his polite military parents. One childhood friend asserts that Jim's father often beat him with a belt for 's insurrections insurrections this only harden Jim to punishment and he started to turn his tortuous efforts inward. He started pinning his brother Andy Down for prolonged periods threatening to spit in his mouth he violently he threw rocks at his siblings. One time in response to his mother's attempts at punishment Jim put her in a headlock and held her there until she started to laugh this highlights. The fact that Morrison infrequently faced consequences dances with his charisma he was able to navigate annoyance in favor of laughter while it was relatively harmless. The lack of reprimanding his childhood laid the foundation for Morrison's destructive behavior after it achieved stardom one thing is apparent though Jim felt a great deal of resentment toward both parents in nineteen sixty five as the doors were first becoming a band a twenty one year old Morrison told the rest of the members numbers that he was an orphan ally he maintained for years and when his father called in nineteen sixty six to tell his son that AH music career was a giant mistake. Jim decided it was the last time he would ever talk to his father. This decision on the surface might seem like the brave stance of a creative pioneer with the vision of the future damned be the naysayers who got an his way but in reality it points to a problem that Morrison Morrison and every other member of the twenty seven club suffered from that of detachment Morrison was a lonely person a boy who grew up with an I q of One hundred forty nine in read Nietzsche in his parent's basement whose rebellious various instinct was brushed aside repeatedly and called hopeless his carefree attitude led him to try L._S._D.. And other drugs it was at first a doorway to his creativity but soon led to full blown blown addiction and alcoholism which was a recurring problem with the music industry particularly through the sixties and seventies all sorts of creative open individuals were flocking to the drug scene for creative inspiration Asian with little understanding of the risks or of the fact that the sensitive lonely side of great musicians fundamentally made them more vulnerable to drug addiction. Morris in substance abuse was exacerbated by his childhood hood belief that consequences were not something that applied to him as the doors gained notoriety in the late nineteen sixties Morrison repeatedly displayed abrasive and offensive behaviors at a nineteen sixty seven concert third in new Haven Connecticut police officers caught a drunken morrison sleeping with a groupie backstage not recognizing the singer. The police confronted him but Morrison only responded with aggression. The altercation turned physical when the doors manager finally arrived he clarified who Morrison was police could still arrest him but they could do it. After the show Morrison brushed himself off and haughtily went up to the stage where he he told the entire crowd about the confrontation he started swearing at the police trying to get the crowd to riot the plan failed the lights of the venue came up the officers put Morrison in cuffs and dragged him away officially officially putting him in the history books as the first Rockstar to be arrested on stage but Morrison's antics weren't just aggressive. They were also incredibly immature at a late sixties. He's Party in Hidden Hills Los Angeles producer Paul Rothschild introduced Morrison to the equally famous Janice Joplin the to hit it off that is until Morrison got drunk and started his vulgar Gert Childish Act Joplin rejected him again and again but the inebriated singer was persistent and pestered her until she tried to get away she left the house with Morrison in tow and got in her car. He begged her to stay a little while longer but when she said no once more he reached out and grabbed her by the hair attempting to remove her from the car by force Joplin didn't hesitate rotate she grabbed the bottle of southern comfort she was carrying and bashed it over Morrison's head knocking him out cold as time went on Morrison's drunken tirades only worsened he started to estrange strange himself not just from his friends but from his bandmates says well tired of his destructive and erratic behavior the doors separated ties with Morrison in October of nineteen seventy he eventually Julie migrated to Paris with his girlfriend Pamela Courson on July third nineteen seventy-one Corson found the twenty-seven-year-old Morrison Dead in his bathtub. There was no coronary report and his passing was ruled as heart failure due to excessive drug and alcohol use Morrison left behind peculiar legacy he was revered as a songwriter and poet but remembered for his abrasive childish antics Morrison was never forced to mature at home and was equally prevented from doing so in a music industry that supported and often encouraged his behavior that is as as long as the prophets were coming in. This was the dark reality of all the musicians we are discussing today because of their incredibly rapid success they were never fully capable of dealing with the things that haunted them the most I demons that would lead them all to an early grave coming up. We'll continue our exploration of the tragic lives of the twenty-seven club it can happen quickly. Your car breaks down an unexpected hospital visit a plumbing problem at your house.

She was made fun of for her weight and skin issues which buried her under a mountain of self esteem troubles that would follow her for her whole life in in response. She tried to rebel against social expectations in her own way. She protested racism in Nineteen Fifties Texas. She read the Beats Karaoke burroughs Ginsberg she painted sang in cafes hitchhike to California and back again to Texas. She enrolled at the University of Texas in nineteen sixty two and dropped out in nineteen sixty three after she was voted ugliest man on campus and while she tried to be different and value the idea of a Bohemian lifestyle the taunts the names the difficulties with their own image stuck with her her incredibly low self esteem made her instantly vulnerable to the sixties drug scene being around San Francisco in Nineteen Sixty three at twenty years old and performing in folk clubs to make a living Joplin fell in fast with the underbelly of San Francisco she shot up method reign and some speculate began using heroin as a way to buffer her comedown. Joplin's addiction evolves so quickly that her friends sent her back to Texas where she continued the dance of taking on small time work and dropping in and out of school while trying to maintain a certain level of sobriety but this all changed in nineteen sixty six when at twenty three she was invited to sing for a band called Big Brother and the Holding Company the one problem Elim the band was located in San Francisco a San Francisco that was in full swing with the hippie movement the kool-aid at the grateful dead concerts with spiked with L._S._D.. Record stores openly sold old marijuana and psychedelics Jefferson airplane played Allen Ginsberg wrote. It was virtually the worst place for a recovering addict like Janice Joplin but she was a woman of talent and once the industry recognizes cognizitive talent. It's hard to let go. It's easy to see why Joplin chose this life forever. She had longed to be accepted to be happy but the scars of her negative self image followed her everywhere. Now there were or people that idolized her that needed her never mind that there was a certain emptiness insider that remained unaddressed so Joplin started to adopt a fabricated personality like Jim Morrison she began to tell L. Tall Tales about her upbringing to appease those that thought of her as a rebel and an outcast. She said she was on the streets by the time she was fourteen kicked out by her unfeeling parents instead of allowing the adoration. You know fans to boost her confidence in herself. She gave them somebody else to adore. Entirely all those people could not possibly love the overweight girl from Port Arthur Texas. The problem deepened when her new manager Albert Albert Grossman along with the media began to drive a wedge between her and Big Brother. They told her that her presence was more vibrant than the others her work ethic more intense her magnetism apparent Grossman Grossman pushed her to go solo toward the end of nineteen sixty eight. This choice started the pathway to her demise without the security and support of the band's she began her career with Joplin's performances started to decrease decrease in quality she started to take more heroin and live with the rambunctious recklessness. The critics recognized the slip and began to falter forever leaving the band in the first place it was like the bullies of her youth youth all over again cruelly reminding her of her imperfections for Janice who so desperately wanted to be loved by anyone and everyone this was an incredibly difficult setback one. She never fully overcame came on October. Fourth Nineteen Seventy road manager. John Cook found a twenty seven year old Janice Joplin in her room at the landmark Motor Hotel in Hollywood she had died from a heroin overdose such where the hidden pains of the Music Industry Joplin was pressured to leave her band behind for pursuit of her own star power but what she failed to realize was that her band offered the type of familial support and love she craved it allowed her to mitigate the fame and move past criticism and the band can be incredibly pivotal in the life of trouble musician. This brings us to part three forming the band a task which ultimately brought about the strange demise of Brian Jones Jones is a bit unique among the primary members of the twenty-seven Club in that he was beginning to lose his fame and influence at the time of his death that said it is undeniable that he was instrumental in forming one of the century's most influential bands as a teenager he was a rebel at heart and extremely intelligent however after impregnating several women including married ones Jones quit school and decided to focus fully on music he particularly liked jazz and blues lose. One of his favorite musicians was Robert Johnson the first twenty-seven club member after meeting Keith Richards and Mick Jagger in the early nineteen sixties and forming the rolling stones a name that Jones came up with after a muddy waters song title Jones introduced Richards to Rubber Johnson's unique guitar riffs how this May seem like a simple gesture of sharing music between peers it forever changed the course of Music History Jones and Richard spent hours fawning over Johnson trying to reverse engineer his sound Richard said when I first heard it I said to Brian Who's that Robert Johnson I said Yeah but who's the other guy playing with him because I was hearing two guitars and it took me a long time to realize he was actually doing it all by himself. The pair came up with a signature method of performing. They called Guitar Weaving Away of playing that seamlessly linked the rhythm guitar and the Lead Guitar to the point that it was impossible to tell which was which musically there was no denying Jones talent and innovation on various rolling stones records he played the Slide Guitar Sitar Organ Marimba Recorder Harpsichord Saxophone Oboe and Harmonica his versatility and love of music was exceptional but Jones was deeply troubled. All of the stones were frequent drug users but Jones went above and beyond Anita Pailin Berg who dated Jones from nineteen sixty five to nineteen sixty seven Evan said that in the years of their relationship they took acid frequently. Unfortunately the acid gave Jones horrible nightmares a side effect that did not stop or slow down his intense drug use. This was the hard truth of the music industry of the sixties. Everyone was taking drugs and everyone was so busy taking drugs that nobody was able to stop and look at the people that hurt the most in the case of Brian Jones the rolling Johnstone's only poked and prodded him in a way that made the problem worse from the outset Richards and Mick Jagger were discouraged by the fact that Jones would earn an extra five pounds for gigs. This was largely due to the fact. cajones handled the band's early managerial duties but it planted a seed of resentment that began to grow then one night in nineteen sixty three a lean shaggy blond haired nineteen eighteen year old walked into a club in Richmond England and felt a smile creep across his face as he watched the stones perform the repertoire this band had it the teenager who introduced himself to the six EXP piece Rolling Stones Group as Andrew Luger Oldham made an immediate impact at a g rolling not rolling it will roll off the tongue better acts the piano player and and what do you mean you don't have any songs Keith and Mick you are not to leave that room until you have a tried and true original in terms of the Rolling Stones Success Bringing Oldham on as their manager altered the course of rock history three he was shrewd deliberate and had a fantastic musical ear for Brian Jones though it marked a turning point in his tenure with the band because Richards and Jagger were encouraged to be the primary songwriters. The group drifted away from the type of Blues Jones wanted to play his behavior became erratic. He started to use drugs more often he became more and more absentee from studio sessions and the stones owns instead of seeking help only ignored the issue and played on Jones was a pivotal member of the band his talent for creating unusual sounds was ever important to the stones success and as we've seen already talent often sweeps the artists deepest problems under the rug for years the band continued to grow more volatile Mick Jagger and Keith Richards were arrested in February of nineteen sixty seven forcing using the group to travel to Morocco in an attempt to lay low Anita Pailin Berg Jones's girlfriend of two years Richards and Jones were traveling together planning to rendezvous with the rest of the band in Marrakesh they they were driving to loose France when Jones admitted he didn't feel well he was soon so violently ill that he had to be hospitalized. Helen Berg and Richards continued on and in days were locked in a passionate love affair when Jones finally recovered in reached Morocco it did not take long for him to uncover what had happened but the cold received little sympathy from his bandmates they shrugged then turn their backs as pal Berg moved in with Keith Richards for the remainder of the vacation. Jones responded in the only way he knew how he got high high enough that he didn't notice when the band returned to England Anita need a Pailin Bergen to- abandoning him in Morocco alone. This was the beginning of the unraveling of Brian Jones aband- was supposed to be an intimate bond a group of people that see you at your most creative and emotionally vulnerable title but instead of lending a hand to Jones when he needed support the stones got high on acid and shook their heads from afar judging his erratic behavior a few months later on May Tenth Nineteen Sixty Seven Jones Jones was arrested for possession of marijuana he had a mental breakdown and was treated by Dr Leonard Henry who warned against jail time for Johns Henry said he would go into psychotic depression as he could not possibly stand a stigma of a prison sentence and he might well attempt to injure himself but Jones reckless behavior only continued a year later on May Twenty First Nineteen Sixty eight Jones was again arrested for marijuana possession. It destroyed his chances of obtaining a work visa for the band's next tour in the United States another year of missed practices and drunken drug infused chaos forced the band's hand on June eighth nineteen sixty nine Jones heard a knock at his door. He opened it and found himself looking at the faces he had come to know so well. Over the past seven years ears Charlie Watts Mick Jagger Keith Richards. They asked him to sit down. Jagger tried to break the news lately. It's just that they needed a guitarist to new all the new songs Jones had been skipping out on all the studio sessions Richards did not WanNa beat around the bush. He told Jones that he was out. Jones only nodded as they told him about the compensation he'd continue to receive then the three bandmates stood up to leave their founder behind richards hesitated before he left turn to Jones and said you'll get your act together man less than a month later on on July Third Nineteen sixty-nine Jones body was found at the bottom of his swimming pool at his home in Hartfield East Sussex a coroner found that his inflated organs showed an excess consumption of drugs and alcohol. We'll continue our progress through the life of the troubled musician after this the story of Brian Jones is a sort of warning thing about the dangers of relationships in creative but chaotic industry like music. This type of toxicity is not only seen within bands but in friendships families and love affairs part four of our discussion is about the last of these love for Amy Wine House. This relationship came in the form of a thin pale man covered in tattoos. He nonchalantly entered a small bar in Camden. London called the good mixer. It was two thousand five nearly two years after the release of Amy's critically acclaimed debut album frank though she was reaping the benefits of a strong beginning to her singing career she was was hit with a crushing stint of writer's block which she drowned in daily visits to the good mixer where she spent hours drinking and idly strumming a guitar wine house had little else to do but drink the days away that is until she laid eyes on Blake fielder civil in two thousand five the two felt an instant attraction that soon grew into a volatile relationship over the next year or so amy and Blake took drugs cheated on each other broke up got back together and broke up again when amy started seeing someone else the tumultuous relationship certainly did not help Amy's wellbeing but it did unlock unlocks something in her that had been tucked away for the first time in several years she started to write songs. This brings up an interesting paradox. It seems that in certain cases the same thing that stirs up these as artists deep internal struggles and causes addiction and other mental illnesses also unlocked some of their most powerful creative energy this energy is so strong and draining that unless the artist finds an outlet it threatens to consume them and when amy channel this energy her genius erupted in a recording studio in New York City on October twenty seventh two thousand six back to black came out and took the world by storm critics praised the album hailing wine house for pouring so much honesty soul and emotion in a single work back to black truly shed light on the deep pain White House is felt on a daily basis her struggle between addiction and health her stubborn desire for freedom the intimacy and reluctant acknowledgment of a relationship crumbling to pieces her honesty leaked over the speakers and the <unk> simple retro field derived from the nineteen fifties and sixties paved the way for a new generation of popular music but even though she shared her turmoil and destruction with the world it still lingered within in her perhaps inevitably amy and blake spheres of chaos began to gravitate toward one another again they drank they made love they snorted crack cocaine and eventually Blake introduced amy to heroin after her death he would later lament this decision saying I made the biggest mistake of my life by taking heroin in front of her. I introduced her to heroin crack cocaine gene and self harming the torrent of drug use fueled by her immensely passionate an irresistible love affair began to snowball out of control at first the media found her inebriated antics amusing. They left is amy ridiculed other popstars going as far as to insult Simon Fuller whose company I signed her then after the couple secretly eloped in Miami in May of two thousand seven things took a much darker worker turn in June interview with Spin magazine Wine House began ranting obscenities. She lamented that she cared little for herself. She wasn't a role model. She did not ask for the fame bestowed upon her. Her then when posing for a photograph with a broken Shard of mirror amy turned the glass on herself and carved the words I love Blake into her stomach amy spent spent most of the summer in and out of Rehab for crack and heroin then in August of two thousand seven at around two thirty in the morning hotel guests heard a Ruckus fight coming from one of the hotels most expensive suites. It's suddenly a twenty three year old. Amy Wine House burst out of the room. She looked off tattered in delirious but she ran toward the elevator with a purpose hot on her heels was a bloodied and ravenous twenty four year old man Blake fielder civil amy tore outside into the warm London night afraid delusional panicked. She ran from her husband at full tilt straight in front of an oncoming car. The car are pulled to a stop help me. She said to the group of girls inside. Please help me. They opened the door and let her in quickly taking note of her condition. Her neck was badly bruised. Her arms were covered in blood that trip down on her ballerina shoes. It was now three a m blake with two nasty gashes that dripped down. His cheeks wandered the streets in a daze calling out for his estranged wife by four A._M.. The couple was seen walking hand in hand sharing a laugh with their wounds on full display. The marriage between amy and Blake ended officially in two thousand nine two years years after this incident but love for them like so many other substances was an addiction they were fulfilled by each other. It was a persistent and irresistible longing a desperation. It is a sad tragedy of fate that links this addiction to amy wine houses soulful enriched music. Perhaps it was that one could not exist without the other perhaps talent such as <unk> hers an ability to put honesty and her deepest emotions into art is more of a curse than a gift. Amy wine-house died two years after her divorce on July twenty third two thousand eleven from from alcohol intoxication sadly leaving the world with only two albums to her name but even that was enough to solidify her place as one of the greatest musicians of the new century something our next musician Russian also accomplished within a relatively small window of time but his addiction first and foremost was to the guitar and Jimmy Hendrix could play the crap out of a guitar Hendrix. Drake's is the focus of part of our series burnout but unlike most of the twenty-seven clubs members Jimi Hendrix did not necessarily burn out from years of substance abuse but instead from music abuse from the time he was fifteen years old hendrix would rarely go anywhere without a guitar. It didn't help him much until one day in nineteen sixty six when a beautiful twenty year old model walked into the Cheetah Club in New New York City up on stage was a band a band like any other except for a lean and determined backup guitarist the model a girl named Linda noticed him immediately because he was playing his right handed handed guitar upside down with his left hand. Linda had been around music but she had never seen anything like this before. The man's fingers danced they were emotional and expressive evoking noises. No one else could ever or would ever recreate after the show. She introduced herself. He said his name was Jimmy. She said that Jimmy ought to meet her boyfriend. Keith Keith Yeah Keith Richards he plays the guitar to Richards took to hendrix quickly. He introduced him to several managers and the ex bassist of the animal's Chas Chandler took the young guitarist under his wing Chandler took Hendrix to London. Dan and Hendrix took London by storm his practice and dedication ripped out onto the stage with fury he dazzled audiences by playing complicated riffs with his teeth or with his guitar behind his back. He dressed brightly. He lit things on fire. He had a burning charisma that radiated off the stage and across the United Kingdom and when he caused a sensation at the Monterey pop festival in nineteen sixty seven when his explosive reputation rippled across the United States as well Hendrix was the very definition of an overnight sensation between nineteen sixty seven and nineteen seventy the young musician asserted himself himself as the best rock and Roll Guitar Player in history his style was unique and Funky is swagger was magnetic but by the time Jimi Hendrix was twenty seven he was ready to switch riches focus from touring to writing new music which was why he signed on when his manager Michael Jeffery suggested he build a state of the art studio which would eventually come to be known as Electric Lady Studios. I was the only problem was they needed money and to make money Hendrix needed to tour but Hendrix had spent the better part of three years on the road since one thousand nine hundred sixty seven the Jimi hendrix experience had played four hundred and forty two shows he was totally and utterly exhausted. The trials of such a life on the road are taxing and for Hendrix. It was no different he was tired of playing the same old songs tired fans booing if he tried new ones tired of the new hotel rooms and new cities not to mention fans were upset with what they deemed the music industry's exploitation of the public they they wanted free shows not to have to pay the capitalists for their music. They would frequently go so far as to riot at concerts in protest Hendrix told Jeffrey he just wanted to take some time and write new all songs Jeffrey patted him on the shoulder just one more tour then he could write as many songs as he wanted. The cry of Love Tour started on April Twenty Fifth Nineteen seventy by all accounts. Every every show was a coin flip. Sometimes Jimmy was inebriated to the point of poor performances or wasn't even able to get on stage. Hendrix didn't abuse drugs quite as dramatically as some of the other members of the twenty-seven Club Club but he was known to freely dabble like the rest of the rock and roll scene. He partied often slept around drank heavily took L._S._d.. And heroin after all he was on the road after all the music industry does its best to push you to the limits. In August nineteen seventy the tour headed across the seas to Europe for the Isle of White Festival where we're hendricks and his band performed on the thirty first then it was Stockholm. Gothenburg are who's Copenhagen Berlin and finally a performance at the love and Peace Festival in fehmarn Germany on this segment of the trip hendrix lamented the toll it was taking he eerily told an interviewer that he sacrificed part of his soul every night that he played and that he was not sure he would live to be twenty eight years old. The show in fehmarn Germany on September sixth nineteen seventy went poorly the weather was bad. The crowd was unruly. They booed Hendricks. He snapped back that if they were going to boo they better do it in key it would turn out to be his last live performance ever the band's bassist and Jimmy's longtime friend Brian Cox fell. Ill and the rest of the tour was cancelled. Jimmy traveled able to London where he stayed at the Cumberland Hotel with a twenty five year old German woman named Monica Danamon they drank. They partied then on the morning of September eighteenth. Nineteen Seventy Monaco woke up and twenty-seven-year-old Jimmy did not he had apparently taken as many as nine of Monica sleeping pills a barbiturate called vesper ax was it intentional and no one knows and likely no one will because Monica gave a series of varying frantic accounts of what had happened the night before nobody really knows exactly what happened but we can understand that in his last stays an exhausted Jimi Hendrix was slowing down and becoming increasingly careless something brought about by the things he was forced to do not the things he chose to do. Parts six in our exploration of the twenty seven club is the thing that connects them all death more specifically a young death Kurt Cobaine. Perhaps nailed a truth on the head about the twenty seven club in some of the last words of his suicide note he wrote. I don't have the passion anymore and so remember. It's better to burn out than to fade away. Even from a young age cobaine had an uncomfortable comfortable relationship with suicide. His great grandfather's stabbed himself in a mental hospital and two of his great uncle's committed suicide when he was still a toddler cockbain was even convinced that his uncle Berle did did so in response to Jim Morrison's death. The obsession deepened in nineteen eighty-four when a seventeen year old Kurt made a home movie called Kurt commits bloody suicide complete with a montage of Kurt stabbing and cutting himself with a fake knife it was chilling and prophetic but it also highlighted that even as a teenager Kurt was preoccupied with his own mortality cobain's brief time in the music industry history encompasses a lot of the pains of the other twenty-seven club members he did heroin he felt extreme bouts of loneliness. He both simultaneously desired and resented his fame. His life growing up up was difficult and always hung over him. Cobain was trapped between worlds his entire life. His parents divorced when he was young and he was pulled between his mother and father he found the straight life deplorable rebel but constantly yearned for the stable family he never had he was a shy introvert but an angry passionate performer on stage in nineteen eighty-seven he and his friend Chris Nova sillage decided to start a band the name Nirvana came to him while watching a Buddhist documentary it highlighted the possibility that one could escape the endless cycle of reincarnation one could live in a paradise of nothing nothing. This sounded like bliss occurred in many ways Kurt cobain's life mirrored the life of Amy Wine House but also had a stronger turbulence to it for one the success of Nirvana's nineteen ninety one album. Tom nevermind catapulted the band to the very top of the music world. Even supplanting Michael Jackson on the US billboard two hundred cockbain was dubbed a pseudo prophet of generation X.. He lambasted the baby boomers mercy for squandering the foundations of revolution that had been built on the music of Jimi Hendrix. Jim Morrison the Rolling Stones and Janice Joplin but much like wine house he too found himself often incredibly turbulent relationship when he started dating Courtney love in Nineteen ninety-one the pair used heroin together. They had a daughter Kirk performed all over the world he grew more distant more resentful all of his fame he and Courtney made a suicide pact. He started collecting guns. He bought a house he overdosed multiple times on heroin in the early nineties but cobain's death was faded not to be an accident sure the ban noticed but there was little they could do it seemed Kurt had long ago chosen death as his companion so on April Fifth Nineteen Ninety four in a quiet drug-free free suburb of Seattle twenty-seven-year-old Kurt cobain stuffed himself with a fatal dose of Valium and heroin in scribbled down a suicide note then he stuck a twenty gauge shotgun in his mouth and pulled the trigger. When Kurt's mother Wendy heard the news she said now he's gone and joined that stupid club? I told him not to join that stupid club. She was referencing Morrison Joplin Glenn Hendricks and Jones the media took the quotation and ran with it and thus the myth of the twenty seven club was born but if we want to go back to the real origin of the twenty-seven club we must go back much further in time to the nineteen thirties in Mississippi or a man with a guitar was headed to make a deal with the devil which brings us to part seven the afterlife not much is known about Robert Johnson but one thing can be said of him. He is a legend in fact he borders on mythical the stories about him swirl with inconsistencies Houston season conflicting documentation but the one repeated most often is the story about how he learned the guitar by all accounts Robert Johnson was desperate to play the blues. The only problem problem was he was terrible. He was laughed at and ridiculed in his hometown of Hazel Hirst enough so that he left town with only his guitar on him sometime. Later Johnson came to a crossroads just before for midnight he felt the air shift and thicken until it was uncomfortably hot his forehead beaded with sweat as he watched a large man emerged from the shadows the man Flag Johnson down and told him he had a nice guitar. You know the man said for a small price. I can tune that for you. Johnson's hands shook as he handed over his most precious possession. The shadowy figure turned the knobs this this way and that strumming each string a single time then he handed the guitar back the man turned to walk away but Johnson called after him wait. What was the price? The shadowed figure waited for a moment before he stretched his mouth then revealed a row of unnaturally white demented teeth then the man's spun on his heels and left Johnson at the crossroads Johnson looked at the guitar and without quite understanding what he was doing he picked it up to play a song he was surprised to find his fingers dance across the strings plucking out a vivacious and original tune Johnson thought about running the man down amount but instead he packed his guitar away and hurried back to his hometown he had music to play the myth of Robert Johnson trading his soul to the Devil at the crossroads has survived nearly one hundred years many obviously believe it to be fake but there is some truth to it son House a famous southern Blues Player from the Nineteen Thirties insists that Robert Johnson was a horrible musician position but then after a relatively short disappearance he returned with more talent than anyone there are different theories as to what really happened some believe Johnson's wife died in childbirth and he went on a pilgrimage to mourn and learn the blues others think there was more than one Robert Johnson playing music in the area and the man who is exiled from his hometown wasn't the same man who returned a musical genius what we do have for certain are some recordings and the death certificate showing Robert Johnson's death at twenty seven years of age. The recordings became some of the most important in music history. They influenced the likes of Eric Clapton Robert Plant Keith Richards Brian Jones fleetwood Mac and Bob Dylan his legacy and legend persist which is perhaps the most important takeaway from looking at the twenty seven club though these musicians all died young their words and their art live on the music industry is rife with Mystique with questions of what if with outlandish stories and idolization the current generation always feeds the next there is something immortal about it something divine. Perhaps that is why such volatile personalities are drawn in. They are the ones that no they are a kind of sacrifice to that divine spirit throughout the next nine weeks. We'll continue to excavate the most charged elements of the music industry because in many ways the darkest sides of music do not just survive they thrive revealing some of the deepest and most frightful sides of humanity. Thanks for listening to the dark side of next week. We'll be back to explore the dark side of Jazz. The Devil wasn't the only danger for Blues Stars like Robert Johnson early. Jazz clubs were filled with drugs cons racial stigma and organized crime.

Morning routines. How stay at home. Moms spend their time reviews of sociology books. I discovered that it is a lot more efficient to have clients reaching out to you. Then you reaching out to them the most straightforward way to make that change in direction happen is to become recognized as an expert at something. So how do you become a recognized expert? How do you become the sort of person people seek out some people grow up knowing what specific topics they'll be passionate about than they study those exact topics in school for many of us though. It's not that simple. We have to figure this out to become thought leaders we have to figure out some interesting thoughts, and then we have to build a following around. Those ideas, that's the leadership part my favorite book about how to do. This is dorrie Clark's book stand out Dory is a thought leader on becoming a thought later in her book. She writes that building strong professional reputation is the best way to protect Annan. Vance your career when you recognized by others as an authority in your field clients and employers want to work with you specifically. And if you do lose your job, you're a quick to bounce back becoming an expert doesn't happen overnight. But there are. Some things you can do today, or at least in the next few weeks to get started on becoming more recognized within your field. You can spend some time today thinking about a few questions that Dory recommends asking these questions will help you figure out the most fruitful topics to generate great ideas about for instance, what parts of your feel do you feel most passionate about what topics? Are you a local expert in which Dory defines as not necessarily the best in the world? But better or more knowledgeable than those around. You what aspects of your field? Do you find yourself drawn to always reading those articles? I are going to those sessions at conferences, then ask yourself what questions in these areas you'd really like to see answered in standout Dory explains. That one of the best ways to establish yourself as an expert is to produce some new knowledge that other people can see and share books. Take a lot of time to right. But anyone can write something shorter such as an. Article or a white paper. We competed defines a white paper as an authoritative report or guide that informs readers concisely about a complex issue. I like that word concisely. It means short enough to be doable. So take a few minutes today and think through a question that you'd really like to see answered then think about how you can do original research on this topic dorey suggests a few questions who is knowledgeable in your industry, but doesn't often get asked for their insights or opinions. How can you reach out to them? What on the ground field research, can you conduct in your area of interest who can you visit or interview about their experiences? Is there a hidden good news story in your field that most others aren't aware of or talking about over the next few weeks? He can carve out sixty to ninety minutes twice a week to do your research then for two weeks. Maybe carve out thirty minutes a day for writing just a few words. At a time will get you there. Ideally, your manager will be interested in sharing your research through your organization's channels that will get your name, Android ideas in front of all sorts of people. If you're out on your own you can put your research on your own website or other public platforms and share news of your discoveries through Lincoln and other social media channels. The good news is that when you put things out into the world, you get feedback people engage with the ideas, and then you can refine your ideas and contribute more to the discussion, contributing to the discussion is network defined as establishing connections. And it's a lot more satisfying than handing out business cards at a cocktail party. When people see you have a great idea, they come to you. And that takes a lot less time. Then you going to them. So what are you going to do today to build your expertise and let the world know about it? I'd love to hear your ideas. In the meantime, this is Laura thanks for listening.

Make time for friends

Very badly is available now posted by me. Jake Brennan, you can listen to disgrace of heart radio app, apple podcasts, or wherever you get your podcasts. Good morning. This is Laura welcome to the before breakfast podcast. Today's tip is about how to make more time for friends. Most of our colleagues when we go to work, we see our families when we go home, but getting together with friends can be challenging we're so busy with everything else that they tend to fall to the bottom of the list, and that's too bad. Because friends are a good use of time. Indeed, good friends can make us feel like we have more time a few years ago for my book off the clock. I asked nine hundred busy people to track their time for a day. Then I asked them questions about how they felt about their time. I've found that the people who felt time was most abundant spent a far higher proportion of their time interacting with friends then people who felt time was scarce. And no, it's not because the people who saw friends had less going on people who felt starved for time had just as much leisure time as everyone else, they simply. Spent more of it watching TV or on social media. The correlation was so strong that I formed this theory being social makes time social media kills time. So let's spend more time with friends and less time on social media. Right. I'm sure we could agree that this would be great. But of course, there are reasons we drift toward the screens. When you're building a career and raising a family a lot of your leisure time appears late at night when it's hard to seize or it requires planning ahead or hiring, a sitter or trading off childcare duties with your spouse, your friends are just as busy they face the same challenges. But Twitter is ready anytime, you are that said, I do think that even busy people can make time for friends one option is that you can build what I call relationship planning into your life in an earlier episode of before breakfast, we talked about planning your upcoming weeks on Friday afternoons, I suggested listing. Priorities in three categories. Career relationships self the reason to make three category list is that it reminds you to put something in all three categories. It's hard to make it three category list, and then leave one of the categories blank. This is a good way to nudge yourself to have a more balanced life. Anyway, the relationship category might naturally focus on your spouse or your kids, but I'd challenge you to make a friend activity a priority at least every other week think about who's company you enjoy and which friendships you really value then use this planning time on Friday to reach out and get something on the calendar. It doesn't have to be elaborate phone or video chat can work with someone who doesn't live nearby or you can plan to meet for coffee or lunch. That's how you build relationship planning into your life. But over years of studying people's time, I've realized that the people who spend the most time at their friends tend to structure their lives. So they don't need to plan relationship time. It happens automatically. Here's what I mean. Some things happen once other things fall into the category of recurring events. You don't have to plan them. They just happen over and over. This is neither good or bad on its own. It can be a bad thing with recurring meetings at work people. Keep Trump into that Tuesday morning staff meeting week after week just to report that yet they're still doing their jobs. This meeting has long ceased to earn its place on the calendar. But you keep going because it's there, but the recurring event phenomenon can be a good thing when we're talking about getting together with friends, it's often the planning that's the huge hurdle. I remember one get together. I was trying to plan a few years ago. I sent out a doodle poll we had to move forward. Two months before we could find a time that most people were available, and I kept going back and forth with venue as we looked at different dates. It was a lot of work for one night. And while it was really fun was not something that insp-. To try again soon. Recurring events, though, don't have this problem. If you know that your gang gets together for drinks every Monday night at the same bar. You don't have to plan each Monday, you can go or you cannot go, but people tend to become regulars you start to build your life around. These anchors in your calendar. You promised to pick up the kids on Tuesday. If your spouse will take Monday when your colleagues asked to schedule meeting, you don't suggest Monday at four thirty pm. So if you have a group of friends you'd like to see regularly think about what kind of recurring get together with work. Maybe it's Friday morning breakfast or an early Saturday morning run. Maybe it's the first Thursday of the month book club, or you could volunteer at a food Bank together every other Sunday think about the logistics required to make this happen. Take some time today to work on your calendar. Talk with your spouse, maybe get help from an extended family member or babysitter. But whatever it is he make a habit of it. It's more likely to happen. If you've made a habit of getting together with friends I'd love to hear about it. You can Email me at before breakfast podcast at I heart media dot com.

Questions From The Zeitgeist (ft The Daily Zeitgeist hosts)
"Jerry Lewis v. Wave seditious incur Kobe also Amy wine-house, Johnny cash and more disgrace them rock and roll true crime podcast stories about musicians getting away with murder behaving. Very badly is available now posted by me. Jake Brennan, you can listen to disgrace. Then the I heart radio app apple podcasts or wherever you get your podcasts. I am. Welcome to our podcast Daniel, and or hey, explained the universe. A production of I heart radio in which we take the entire universe slice it up into little pieces and explain every single one to you wanted to time we answer all of your deep and amazing questions about this incredible universe. And we try to make sure that you come away understanding something. So you can sound smart. The next cocktail party you go to with a bunch of physicists today. We have a special episode. We're going to be once again answering listener questions, but not your normal listeners. Not your everyday listeners. That's right. There's a twist today today, we have special listener guests that today, we have the host of the podcast daily guys miles Jack here, and we're going to be asking their questions about the universe about planets about quantum machine guns. That's right. Usually these guys with talking about the daily events what's going on in the world when you should care about. But they also think deeply about the universe. So they are here to talk to us about deep questions about the universe. Very deeply record scratch. Listen. Jack was that. Okay. Sorry. And this is miles. This is what this is my voice, much nicer. Say welcome jacking miles. Thanks. Yes. Tell us a little bit at your podcast, and where it can be will know, it's like it's like a woke morning show you wake up. We'll give you the best news. We have a Jack. And I and a comedian and we just run down the top stories. I have a background in politics. So, you know, talk like, I know what I'm talking about. And then Jack does the funny stuff. Every other every other morning show is sleeping moaning. Problems that are being said. Only only excuse for people. Yeah. But I started the website cracked dot com. And I've been doing this for the past year and a half with miles. It's good time. Pretty cool. So do you guys cover science topics as well? When you talk about the daily, we do if there's something like, I think that's important to humanity or funny. So we'll talk about like, you know, that biomass like insect biomass just decreasing at an alarming rate. But we don't typically get into super heady stuff. Because like if it's like gravitational wave star, Tori, I'm like. Miles can see it. He believes it exists exactly so germs or dinosaurs. Scientology because I can see that building. To OT six operating. I believe it exists. And then you're gonna have to explain the universe Scientology to me someday. Oh, yeah. Do you have a moment? Because I clear actually. Yeah. Great great. I mean, I feel like I guess Z new does have a lot to offer us. But I think this maybe for another show. Yes. That's a different universe. Exactly. Right. But there are Ilian involved. Right. Aren't there? Don't be patronizing alien many different volcanoes. We talked about a move, right? Oh, yeah. We do because I think that navy footage where they said they found like an unidentified. Yeah. That flying object unidentified flying tic TAC. Did you see that? Aliens is never pigeon ising. It's totally a hundred percent. James sounded. So. Yeah. Clean about not being sarcastic are hundred percents. Okay. Did you see that video that tic TAC and thing what did you what do you think? That was. I think it's something crazy. We don't understand. So it is something it's something that was something something definitely not nothing. Just like technology. We're not million could be doesn't have to be like extraterrestrial weird. Not understood. You know, the navy pilot like fighter pilot footage of how they saw that thing just rotating and then like inexplicable celery in different directions. The end the padding on released like at the end of last year before. Yeah. That wasn't just special effects. No. The Pentagon was like all right. We'll declassify this video if you guys want to see it. Yeah. Yeah. Pentagon crowd sourcing. It's intelligence. Internet. Tom long from eighty to help us this out. This is why we invented the internet. Outsource our intelligence exactly to capture the intelligence of the genius of the crowds. Cool. Well, I you guys talk about the daily culture and the guys of of the humanity on a daily basis and imagine something must have questions about the universe about space about the role that humans and an an and our culture. Today. You guys have three questions we're gonna try to run through them in episode today, and they're about planned for mation and quantum machines guns, machines guns and machine guns. Yeah, I wasn't sure if it was a quantum machine gun or a quantum machine gun right gun that shoots. Mechanics into your brain love that works. Yeah. I think I have more simple questions. And then Jack is the one about quantum leap or whatever. Quantity. This show. After all. Definitely. All right. What's where should we start? Oh, let's let's go. Nice and easy. Yeah. Clan. Most of my scientific questions from the and there's a song called fourth chamber that asked the question. Why is the sky blue was water wet the second question doesn't make any sense to me? I one I have always been curious. Why is the sky blue? I love that question. Wise water wet really interesting. It's just too much for my brain to hold, you know, that song particle, man. Yes, man. Yeah. When he's underwater does he get wit? Or does the wire in his debt? Stuff. Yeah. Mine below that as a child, I'm just curious is the version that I understand this guy to be blue true, which is like the ocean. Is that it? I almost it's kind of like a wet wet and water this ocean is blue sort of because this guy's blue, isn't it Daniel, I'm not the scientist. There are those so short answer is the sky's blue. But not because the ocean is blue. Okay. But you're not you're not alone. In that fought I walked around campus at UC Irvine is today, and I asked a bunch of people why the Sky Blues that how scientists figure things. Around. Professor. Three four people. I mean, I have more than four people but three four of them said because the ocean, right. That's I think the misinformation were given like when your parents like the ocean. Ocean matches. So what was your thinking that the ocean is blue and to somehow that's making this cow. And it's just like a something. I never really bothered to think through that. Because half the time when I look at those and like that ain't blue. Whatever all three if you're in the desert like a thousand miles of sandy the skies. Still blue jealousy thing that this guy was like, Ooh, I like that color, right? They're always fighting drop some science. All right. So why is this guy blue well to answer the question wise, anything any color think for moment about what that means to have color? Right. And I think there's a basic misperception like light has lots colors in it. Right. And if something is painted blue, for example, that doesn't mean that it absorbs blue light, it's not like fucking in the blue nece is blue. It's reflecting blue light. Right. So if something like this Kleenex blocks in front of me is blue. It means that the paint on it reflects blue light. And it's absorbing all the other colors. Yeah. And sucks in all the other colors Twi black things get really hot and white things. Don't. Yeah. All the way back, and I know this because the interior of my ninety nine prelude was jet black and in the hot LA heat. I would burn myself on the inside of the car. They miss. Why Jedi is and whatever on twin? We're all white reflect. Yeah. All right. So sky must be blue because reflecting blue light. Right. And in fact, that's true the atmosphere when the light comes from the sun this light from the sun is mostly white is a big mix of colors and she's a tiny bit green. But it's mostly white up to the sun in space. It would be white. Look at the sun, though, directly under astronauts are out there is or do they have like sunglasses sun visor? Yeah. I don't know. That's a great question. I imagined that NASA sends them there was sunglasses. That's very because the blind astronaut would be bad. Right. Right, right. Or the astronauts are just smart enough to not look at the sun and the astronaut sons big hard. And this is why you didn't get into NASA. Every day. Yeah. How long to look at the sun high patch right now. That was from the clips don't use those binoculars. All right. So we got white light hitting me atmosphere. Right. And when when the light it's the atmosphere, you got the different colors and the blue light is the one that wiggles the most highest energy. And so, you know, light is a wave and it wiggles. So the red light wiggles really, slowly and the blue light wiggles, really fast and the blue light bounces off the atmosphere. More than the red light does like little particles atmosphere when the blue light hits them they bounced. It's kind of it's a scattering, right? Doesn't like bounce off back to space. It. It's sort of like. Fear, and then it makes basically glows right? And makes the atmosphere glow. Blue that kind of data. I think of it more like it gets reflected like so you looking up at the sky looking at the sun. Right. Why is there like coming from that part at all it's got reflected so light from the sun hit that part of the atmosphere? And then comes to your is what part of that light is your is the part that got reflected, which is the blue light. Just like if you're looking at a blue wall. It's not glowing rice that doesn't produce lights only reflecting light is reflecting the blue light only right atmospheres the same way. So that means fear reflects the blue light, which is why looks blue. So why does it only reflect blue and not the other colors? Yeah. Because the blue light wiggles more and the atmosphere is made it these little tiny particles, and and the little tiny particles are better at reflecting things that we will more because the wiggles are shorter. And so imagine for example, you like walking across a field field with rocks. Right. If the rocks are really really big then. And you're gonna get bounced around big obstacle. The rocks are really really tiny like you're walking across the beach. Don't even really notice. So the blue lights he's like really big rocks because it wiggles more. It's tiny has gets bounced off them the red light. Just like skips over them like walking over the surface over that. Yeah. And is here. Yeah. Exactly. So red light mostly goes through straight through air. We'll blue like it's bounced is why you see the the blue light in your eyes. When you're looking up at the sky and the size of the Adams up in the atmosphere. It's not like quantum electron level kind of thing. No. It's basically about the the relative sizes of the wiggles and the light and the atmosphere, but in a bigger stuff reflects all light light. Which is why most powders white right because the particles of the powder are pretty big. So they reflect everything but. Atmospheric particles are much much smaller than the powder. You might have in your ninety three prelude, right, for example, sugar and salt the powdered sugar in the backseat of your old car is acting. And so that's why the sky reflects blue light. And also explains why for example, sunsets are not blue. How does that clean it? It's the same Matt Murphy. Right. It's in I understand it. But. Steam smart. I was just trying to see if you know. So yeah, why is this guy? So so if you if you look at the atmosphere, you're seeing reflected light if you look directly the sun don't do that. But if you were to you'd be seeing light directly from the sun or all blues removed, right because the blue light that comes to you directly from the sun gets bounced away. So you're seeing the red or the yellower side of the spectrum. Right. So the blue is removed since Morale's and you see the yellows the reds the oranges. That's why the sun looks yellow in the sky, right? The sun isn't yellow white, right? Looks yellow in the sky through the filter of the at exactly the atmosphere now at sunset you look into a lot more atmosphere because the sun is low in the sky. So it doesn't just a little bit about mis fear. It's skimmed along to a lot of that misfield. So gets like yellow were so yellow looks orange and red and darker Darko. So as like fear like versus just hitting it straight on because it's like that you're getting this curvature the slice atmosphere. Get more and more blue light gets filtered out. And then you get just the red light left, but the whole sky turns pink, or at least half of this guy turns pink. Yeah, that's mostly because of smog. That's because we live in LA. If the sky was perfectly clear, right. Then a sense. It would look more yellow and mostly just around the sun. But then that light that yellowy red light, whatever bounces off of particles in the atmosphere smog, or whatever and that in clouds, and that's what gives you a beautiful sunset, but the color comes from all the blue getting filtered out by the atmosphere does being closer to the equator affect the beauty of the sunset. I don't know. I don't know because they think of like like tropical places that have amazing sense there there really isn't that much pollution this. I feel like the smog is influencing the color of the sunset some curious. If that. Better mood, if you're. Like, oh, my God that's ever like what Cockfield better. That's a physics physical effect. Also, be the Hayes like water, vapor. We'll do that. Also. Oh, gotcha. There's probably more clouds equally at the equation as you embarrass yourself. Let's talk quantum machine. Wow. Hosting. But first, let's take a quick break. Hi, this is Daniel from Daniel and Jorges explain the universe. We have so many unanswered questions about the universe.

I hope you enjoy it. All right moving on, Jack. What's what is your question today? My question is I I would love this year from like your hell, your brain works in explaining the quantum machine-gun theory. It's hard for me to get my simple break. Yes. Jack tried when we were talking about this. He tried to explain it. And I actually just walked away. Did not understand. This single thing is Dr. I have a question about your question. The why are you so fascinated by quantum machine guns? Are you looking to build one reddening with? Thinking about purchasing one EBay, and you want to know if it's real or with. I mean, it's a very so it was a philosophy major. And it's like a very philosophical. I don't know. Like, it's where I was. The ternal high became a philosophy. That's philosophic question. It's like the it gets into, you know, multi verse and all those different things, which it would seem to me would affect just the entire metaphysical reality of. Of the world. So that's why interests me like if if it is real and not just thought experiment. It would seem to be like a a existence of shaping thing. I guess. We can explain what it is. What is he talking? What is it? What is it quantum machine? Gun scene. Done is like a variation on the Schrodinger, cata experiment. I don't that from Silicon Valley. Okay. Hollywood is entertaining. And. Awesome. So the idea there is put something like a particle. That's decaying. We don't know how long it's gonna take to decay put in a box, and then when the particle decays. It kills a cat somehow releases poison or something, and then you can ask the question is the cat dead or is the cat alive inside the box. You can't see it. Right. It's Termine by what that quantum random particle does. And so the idea is you put the particle in the box, and you don't know whether or not it has decayed, which you know, has consequences for the cat. And so because you don't know then you say things like it's both dead and alive because as probably to be both. Okay. So that's the shooting. Park is both doing but doing both things at the same time. If the cats live depends on the particle, then the cads must be also dead, analyzed at the same time. And that's that's actually the heart of the question, which the machine gun example, also is what's going on with quantum mechanics? Like, if a particle can do a or b has probability do Aaron be is it both a and b before you looked or has it chosen one or his universe? Split into one universe where the particles done anyone universe where the particles done be that this limp is explanation is. Create a whole new universe. Max tech. Mark took this the next level. And he said, let's not put cats at risk. Let's put ourselves at risk said, let's put let's build a machine gun with a machine gun. Fires based on what a particle does particle can be spin up or spin down with equal probabilities like a coin flip, right? And if every time you press, the trigger on the machine gun it asks the particle spin up. Our you've been down its been up if it's been down. It doesn't take the particles in charge of the safety which gun pull it you pull the trigger for the particle. If it's doing one thing let you shoot. If it's the other thing, it's a little like Russian roulette right Russian roulette, you put three bullets into six chamber gun, or whatever you spend. It. You have a fifty percent chance of dying right problem with Russian roulette is determined. Once you put them in there, and you spin it. It's either going to be a bullet or an NBA chamber. It's fixed right with quantum machine gun. It's supposed to be truly random like the universe is really. Random. So when you press the button, max tag mart says the universe splits into two one where shoots a bullet and one where doesn't shoot a bullet. And that's the crazy thing is imagining like the universe. Splitting into two universes. So the thought experiment is like you go into short lingers box. Cat. You put yourself in. And you see what happens, but it's more than that. He says now build the gun pointed at yourself and keep pressing the button, what will you here? And his point is you will only hear click. Click. Click click, you'll never hear the gun go off, which you would think would be a one in a billion probability, right? Because if you're multiplying fifty percent fifty percent and gets more and more unlikely that you're not gonna hear the gun go off. But is why does it have life or death though? Just be a light. Happy. Take elephant. Yeah. That's true. I guess. All right. With. I mean, if it was just a light, it, wouldn't you wouldn't see to exist. Right. And the idea is that in there there are nine hundred ninety nine other like if it's one thousand thing there are nine hundred ninety nine other branches of reality and probability where you did die. Right. Because you're you only exist because you are your experience than you are only in the one branch that. Didn't go off essential one one version of the universe. Reg. It doesn't go off. No matter. How many times you click times this some probability for it's never kill. You is somebody who pressed it a million times and had that experience or some version of the universe in which happened. The only one who still awake. And he says, you know, you only ever hear clicks. I think here bunch of clicks. And then eventually you hear a boom. There's this some version of you that can do as many clicks as you want. Right. They seem they both both throwing his cat and quantum machine theory seem like really good ways for you to make physicists who believe in the multi verse like realize that they don't actually believe. Okay. You believe that do this thing. And if you truly believe in it, then you'll never die right because. And I think that was what triggers cat was originally designed to like illustrate the absurdity of quantum theory. Be alive. And. Yeah, do you think is that true? Was that exam? Max smart come up with this example, to like, you know, kind of puts fizzes on the spot. I think he probably came up with his example to sell his book. Pretty well for him. Some universe at the best. Warehouse full of. But you're the philosopher tell me, do you think there's another universe out there where you, you know? It's morning different kind of cereal. I think it's as good as anything I've come up with. On my end or anything ridge at a high or low bar. No, I think it's just a really interesting way to think about things I don't think you necessarily want to think about it. If it's think about it that way, if it's gonna make you behave recklessly if you're going to be like. Like driving them right version. But basically, right. That's that's a complete the experiment is that if you still healing hearing the click you must be in the one universe. Improbable? They're running back and forth across the freeway. Right. Frank version of user vise that for an hour share them for a day summers and gets splat immediately. Do any of these things. Because I mean, the reason that they designed it where the gun goes off based on quantum coin flip is because that's really the only truly like random things. So I mean, you're still on a chain of probability where something is or isn't going to happen unless you are existence is being determined by quantum coin flip, right, which still blows my mind. I mean, I understand quantum mechanics as well. As ever going to still don't understand how something can be truly random. It has to be some mechanism in the universe. That's producing random numbers. But it wouldn't be truly random and not truly random. What's the difference? Truly random means. Not predictable. Right. Not repeatable German than anything doesn't. Well, can depend on something. It can be influenced by but you have a distribution where the random draw is not repeatable not determined by the initial conditions, right? It's not. Magical box. No magical. It's physics. Seems like physics is indistinguishable. Like if we. I mean like violating laws of physics is impossible that would be like Lord of the rings magic. But if you were to call that quantum nugget there that can give you anything at any given time you might you might use the word magic. What did you think you might use the word magic? Yeah. Hey. To show we understand in physics. We don't yet understand. Right right magic. If you like or you can call it, you know, science fiction or whatever. But it was. So what's the other form of randomness? If because you said truly random there's there's really only truly random is pseudo random like your computer can generate random numbers not actually random like you give me a series of random numbers. It'll be the same series every time. So it's not really random, right, right? Algorithm. That someone's created for using things which you know, spread the numbers out, basically. But it's not actually ran the same ask the same computer the same question. It will give you the same string of random numbers or even three and a die is not truly random right because you can freese the result back to some something. You did way back. Right. Whether you decided to put a rabbit, flooding your pocket or not, right? Edging skipped your Scientology meeting. Downgraded. You're right. It's not random chaotic right difficult to predict. So it's a good proxy for Innis. Right. But it is totally determined by. How you rule the die? You roll the dice same way. Every time you're gonna get exactly the same answer. It's impossible to do which is a good proxy for this. But yeah, quantum mechanics is the only true randomness in the universe that we know. And it seems random because we just can't explain it yet. Right. Although there are experiments they've done that basically proved that it's random that is completely completely random. Yeah. They're these crazy experiments, really subtle. The call is about bills inequality correlations between particles where they prove that it can't be determined by the initial conditions at has to be actually random, which is pretty mind. Blowing said that we asked Jack that we? Yeah. Those really that actually was a much better explanation. I don't know. I it. It's so interesting like multi just in general. So like to even think that there are other questions delving into that is the second nother splitting my brain in nine directions again multi bunkers, I mean, that's that's philosophical say bonkers and crazy, but you can't see magic magic. Allow. Negative universe. Bonkers? Like the crazy stuff. We talk about on our show. Like, you know, how do you wrap your head around it huge spinning stars and black holes? Now, let's of his bunkers, even if it's real right? Yeah. But the multi verse is like extra bonkers because imagining like extra universe is being created all this stuff. Just don't I can't. I don't know where to put that in my head version where you are on our show, Jack and miles explain. That's right. I really wanna actually different kind of universe. Well, we we do have a whole episode about the multi and whole opposite about quantum randomness on magic bonkers quantum quantum bunkers. I've ever heard of physics gathering. That sounds like fun game. There's nothing on all the cards. How do I know? I'm winning. All right. So let's get to your last question. But first, let's take our less break. The episode. Jerry Lewis, fifth wife, dead, sit Nancy dead, Kurt cobaine. Also, Courtney love insane Johnny cash. Dick, did I turn abusive and XXX ten Tassio and Amy wine house completely off the rails. Disgrace Lynn is a rock and roll true crime podcast about musicians getting away with murder behaving very badly. This hosted by me Jake Brennan, I grew up in round rock and roll. In the one thing, I know to be absolutely true. Is that real Rockstars parties? Sane more like feral, nurses to animals functioning members of society in this is precisely what makes them so damn entertaining to pot big Marvin Gaye James Brown. John Lennon Jeon stones and the hills. Angels running security and dead kid on the dance floor these stories and more are all waiting for you in disgrace. Listen to disgraced Santa the iheartradio app. Apple podcasts. Wherever you get your podcasts. One last question for you. And it say, it's an epic in scale. It's scale, it's planetary. Yes. It's gigantic. It's by the by the best question you've ever been asked. Yeah. This is some real magic stuff with miles of. Some stretches here. Yeah. Credible. Just put his leg behind his head. Hanging from the ceiling. You wish this was a TV show. I do. You know, I I love space, and I like the crowds. Like, yeah. I've I'm still on my space actually Facebook space, even on my keyboard, gigantic space barred overtakes the rest. But I, you know, just planetary formation is just another not necessarily philosophical thing because that's a physical phenomenon. I'm just curious. Because once I started reading about the Juno prob- that's going around Jupiter. There were some people. I spoke with who worked at J P L who were sort of saying like Jupiter has a lot of secrets or we'll give us a better understanding of planetary formation in this solar system, and I'm sort of like, well, why don't we need? We look at like earth or whatever. So I'm just sort of like that got me thinking like, wow, it's interesting to think they said if we look at planning planetary formation is like a cookbook, we're only seeing the finished product right everything being cooked or baked or whatever the end thing is is like, but with understanding Jupiter will begin to understand the recipe and down the road solar system. Yeah. Or whatever. But I just, but it's interesting to even think, you know, because we live on this physical earth would sweat. You know, what went down really was a magic. Can you say your JP? L when you got interested in. Yeah. Yeah. Because I at the time I just knew that this was a very novel, like just very important experiment. This pro was going out, and it was like months before the first sets of data. We're going to be sent back and everyone was just so like this man, like we really this is the thing like Jupiter really is going to help us understand so much so many other things like, weather and all these other things. So it was just so interesting to me that there was this this planet out there that if we can study a bit more like it's going to it could potentially help us understand many other things that we experience. So that's like, okay. Yeah. I guess planetary formation is is a lot more indepth than merely saying, hey, we're on earth. You know, some stuff started swirling around each other got dense. And then boom. Yeah. That basically answers the question. The answer swirling, boom. You're gonna plan. Here's the recipe. I think that's really interesting question. I think touches on something which is like deepen everybody. Which is we want to understand our history sharing. What went down? How did this come about? And is this unusual like other other solar systems out there that have earth's or is it all Jupiter's Zola's method? All Uranus, right, for example, or all Saturns or something. So it's pretty interesting stuff. And you know, the planets I think one of the interesting things about that. Is that the planets are formed about the same time as the star, right? The whole thing of basically a big mix you start with the big cloud of gas and dust and other stuff that comes from other stars blew up right like rubble out there in space and then gravity gradually pulls it together. And most of the gas gets sucked towards the center. So you get this huge star in the middle. Right. And then the leftovers just sort of swirling around it. Right. Well, what does the gas come in? I why does he ask him? And I it also happens at once, but the gases light gets pulled in towards the center. Yeah. And rushes in faster. I guess because it's it's guests. Well, I think it's equally distributed, but the gas gets sucked into the center faster than the rocks and stuff. So you end up with like a lot of gas the center, which becomes a star. And then you get like, you know, where the gases pulled away you get rocks, which like rocky planets and the outer part, you have still have gas and stuff left over. Which is why you get like big gas giants. Okay. Yeah. So Jupiter's mostly hydrogen and water and that kind of stuff whereas earth, this is not as mostly rock. Right. But basically, it's just gravity right gravity. It takes a long time, but gravity sucks this stuff. Together. You get a big star. And the stuff that's orbiting around it gradually gathered together bounces into each other, and and gravity sticks together. And just sorta gradually pulls everything together. Like, you said like density, boom. My question is why why why do we have planets at all wise and wise in the solar system. Jesus star. Why doesn't everything just get sucked or why aren't planets just asteroid belts? Okay. So two different inches wide. We have plans at all, right? Why didn't everything to get sucked into like when black hole or one-star? Right. Well, there's some things keeping things from falling into the center. Right. And that's just enough spinning right? So the whole, blah when it started with spinning already, and that's been can't go way. Right as angular momentum can't have to be conserved. Can't just can't stop spinning. It's it's not rubbing against anything to slow it down. It's it's space which keeps on spinning somehow you that sound inappropriate. I would have preferred friction Liz environment. Waggling eyebrows. Shirt. History of rubbing inappropriately against just no it's it's out there in space, and there's nothing to slow down this new friction nothing too great to grab onto so it's gonna be keep spinning forever. And so this stuff is moving ends up in orbit. Right. It's like asking why does the moon fall to the earth moving so fast that it doesn't fall keeps going around the earth? Instead of falling earth is an stuff that made the earth is not gonna fall into the sun because moving fast enough when it comes from that initial rotation though. I see. So even though we get the sun. There's still stuff out there spinning around doesn't wanna fall into the sun. Yeah. Exactly. It's moving fast fall into the center too. Good to be the son. Where does it for me to plan? It's like like Jack said some of some of the day's asteroid built like debris, but some of it forms into planets eventually all gathered together like fast forward, the solar system billion years or so and you'll have a smaller number of bigger asteroids. Eventually, all okay. So that's rebel. We'll be a planet. I don't know about one planet, but like will coalesce. Really in billions of years. We could have a new visit in the same way rings turn into moon's. Right. Rings are not a stable situation for a planet really gathered together into moon's. Yeah. Like the earth probably had rings for while after he got hit by some other planet and created all this debris this around that which form the moon probably had some awesome set of rings, which then gathered together into a moon so on its way to having him. Oh, yeah. We don't know. How old the the rings of Saturn are? But we think they're not very old. I mean, they're millions of years. Sure. Sure. But on the solar system, they're pretty young. And so that stuff eventually is going to gather together and form larger objects. Yeah. Okay. Each also each planet got different stuff based on where it was in the solar system. Right. The closer stuff got the rock that are leftover not much gas because they got sucked by the sun. Stephanie outside is mostly gaffe. Like if you look at what's inside Jupiter, right? Crazy, right? Super compressed metallic hydrogen. Right. It's. Yeah. That sounds like a color for new iphone or something. We just call it silver. With the marketing geniuses over fourteen. You often hear Jupiter described as a gas giants people think, oh, it's just a big ball of gas gas, and it's heightened, but it's not in gashes state. Right. Some of it's like solid. So you could land on Jupiter because it's like a metallic hydrogen covered by like an ocean of liquid hydrogen and then gas on top of it. So it has an atmosphere, but there's an ocean liquid hundred. I wouldn't recommend going there with that's pretty nice equipment pretty radiation. Yeah. But there's something solid there to land on I read that. Like these gas plant gas planet out there the rips in ninety nine percent of the mass of the solar system. So it's it's like it's most of our system except for the son of sun is are in these gas giants we out there. Yeah. Exactly. Most of the mass in the socialism's a son. That's like ninety nine percent of that one percent. Most of it's the gas giant planets, right? Because remember the earth is about one tenth of the radius of Jupiter, which is about one tenth the radius of the sun. Right. All right. Right. Right. Yeah. Remember that? I just remember as a kid who like there could be. I don't remember the number. But as I could so many earth's could fit in. This was like, yeah. Right. Miss holton. Third grade. Forget that. Yeah. Volume goes by like the radius cube. So you could read it's only ten times of wider, but you could fit thousand earth into sure thousand Jupiter's into the sun. The. That's a number million billion. Yeah. Cool million a cool mill. Exactly. Yes. You're right. Jupiter's huge. Most of the stuff that's not in the sun is in Jupiter. Gobbled up all the stuff, but we should be grateful right active Jupiter being really big could've saved our lives because asteroids that would destroy earth. Get sucked into Jupiter. Yeah. Exactly. It's acting like a linebacker out there like cleaning out, the solar system got gathering all that stuff. I don't know if you guys remember like twenty years ago, or so there was a huge Commodore enter the solar system and then slammed right into Jupiter. Oh, really? Yeah. Common. Shoemaker-levy was really awesome shoemaker. I remember that. Yeah. Yeah. It's slanted Jupiter. Each piece that hit we got broken twenty pieces mid huge fireball like bigger than the earth. But. But. Us. It would have caused a big wave. We'd probably recording very different. On jupiter. Thank you so much. Do I didn't realize how much of a debt to Jupiter? Yeah. Now have new appreciation for it. So that's the answer to planet for mation is just gravity and stuff. Tuesda that doesn't wanna fall into the sun out. There starts to clump together begin to leftovers, and we get a beautiful earth in would beautiful sunset. Exactly, exactly. And some call that magic. All right. Well, thank you guys for joining us.

Week's guest is Jean picket spotify as global programming head of RB. Child Fan. Are You doing this day corey? I'm plus I've been taking my new car. You earn the writing the. Here again there's a hassle, Hashtag Hashtag new gardener. Okay, I'm really into it. It's amazing how quickly you can fall in love with plant children. Ready No. I have a lot of them. I've given them all names. Of course. My hydrangea trees But we call her Miss Whitney for. Shirt. I have so I have all kinds of plants all kinds of me, but honestly real talk. It's been really therapeutic. I had no idea oprah's been telling US forever. Which I've late, I have PR clouds like it's holding, so are you? I see you have houseplants so Dan i? Have House plants in shadow to our CO worker Neil Lawrence. WHO's the greater essence in other instagram? Feed she if I started out. Her was alive. Her plans light, but we'll talk. She was like she had to get them for his own calls. She needs the creative society out of I'm yet so I'm yet, so she was like okay. These places have plant so I decided you know because this Hashtag by black everything they could be on a black parade, so I went to this blackout nursery. And? Laughing because I asked him, how much was the fate of Victory Acute retriever expensive? He quoted me three hundred dollars Oh. Yeah, I believe so my argue new yard in our home. We didn't have a yard, so they renovated the house, but they didn't do anything to the yard, so we were like Oh wait. We have to create a yard, not a single Bush not A. A tree napping so I bought a tree. Tuesday's but Charleston you cheery to put in a yard that will grow in eventually Shade Street. I'm talking about a little plant. Just for foliage, right? A tree, a tree tree, and they are not cheap. The cutest dreams come with the IT's like fashion. It's like nature's fashion. You wanted to LE- off. Megan grain did not purchase three hundred one. North One hundred twenty five dollar plan. You didn't get I. Didn't know, but I did get a believe is called a rubber plant. I spent forty five editor as a cute and so, but what I'm going to need is a little table to put it out off gotta get like a little flower table editor, little flower table to to give it going back to knees. I wanted to look like knees. Search and tables on anywhere you go. Okay I'm going to do the same by. Now another thing that I do that keeps by. That keeps me like just when I'm on the precipitous of just going over the edge I play a playlist. You Know I. Go to my music. I love music. I. It just immediate the playlist I mean you know we've talked about it. The cleaning one the sad one happy one and it's crazy. Because when we were talking to Jean, it was like I just feel like she's the one doing like. She's the reason that I always these great plans to go. Do and I get so much is version for my own playlist from hers. You know and it was so cool to talk to her black music. Totally cool in what I love chatting her abou is during this whole height of awareness that we're all going through around. Black lives matter spotify. Black lives matter playlist is doing so well, but also what I love about. It is some stuff that I learned in. It's also giving me a chance to educate my daughter to say like no these protests owns know. These are songs that have. A lot of meeting. These are classics. Like may have already of some stuff, but now I have the context and I'm talking about it more. You know it's even funny. Max, was. We're listening. Something came up. It was What's going on? You know we all know we all we all the protests. It's off the times and he said he said. If you really listen to these lyrics, he said this song come out today and it would still. Still have an impact on I. was like is true, so let's kind of these play. This really gotten. It's time to kind of re listening to music with new ears. If you will you know it's interesting that you say that because we English chance to talk about Black Rave which was amazing and I loved it to Bob. We thank you be. Do you do it? She got money okay. Quick instantly I love the lyrics and I was just like. I'm getting my offerings together but. Anyway I still need that arm. Be aren be armed in the middle like I'm really a need John. Levin, or I'm trying to think of who I needed from I. Need Somebody to give us the new Wisconsin on cello. You're in luck. Because John Legend has put out a whole new album is called bigger low. Though I want you after a recording. Go get into it because he has that. No, you know, it's crazy because I can't just I've been spending so much time in my garden I didn't even know Don Johnson album kind of berries, but we'll talk about that later, but what I do love with artists in general, though especially right now is when they're trending. Like when you see like every time I see when Houston trending I lose my mind or when you see Lauryn Hill. The other day was brandy, but I don't you love it? When like your favorite days trend just because? I know and whoever kicked off to like randomly select black celebrities. Just show them love for the day estimates I really that, so if I had to pick who I'm going to, who would it be? For at night, even quietly that when I mean I don't think Eric Dugas in the flowers. Doesn't even have this says like so many people were like waiting for green is all the people know like? We know why we love Erica. I could use an Erica by do twitter appreciation day. I could use Raphael deep twitter appreciation day, who else brandon just got one recently, which is amazing I got one to me you to me. When she called up these friends to just be singing in her house when she deborah Cox Count on me during the pandemic. I'M NOT GONNA lie. I watched that video at least ten times. Times I cried to all of it was exactly what my spirit needed, but the thing about like you guys, you forget to me. It has given us at least thirty number. ONE RADIO HITS LIKE SUMMER R&B no like she I mean she's got so many from bike stranger in my bed to still and I feel like people we know, and will we hear them? We say AMAC got with fabulous so into you, the original like to Mia. Where's appreciation day? Let's do needs it. Let's start. Let's start here, but it got me thinking Charlie. Are Three albums that you can play from beginning to end without stopping. ooh, that's a good one. Most recently in analyst, not recent anymore, but it's one of them anti Riana. True True! That was like start to finish. Like never needed to skip. which your person. My favorite is Mama's gun. I mean start to finish although I do skip over track one mostly I kind of pick up didn't know. Is still counts, but I do play it all the way through easily. That was so good. That was when I was a freshman in college. I think talk more freshmen in the dorms, so I'll say my next album that I could start to finish in. Really it's any album of hers is Chardonnay. Start defending I will say though I find that. I must start with diamond life till I always have to start there. And then ardor start to finish fell I. Know I'M GONNA lose my black woman card for the week for this. I'm not a big Fan, but not in the sense that Yes go park. Thank you for listening girl. It's this is the last episode not like I. Don't let me finish. It's not that I have any problems recite or her music, but I never had the albums and got into that like when Saturday comes on love it but I think i. only know like the lyrics to water to. Okay so he? Not An caused a sound engineer shutout Josh with task or Anthony because we do to avenir jobs, but I'm glad you said that 'cause let me take a quick segue. One reason I love Shoddy, so much is because you know in high school, you know I was in the dmv area. Listen W. H., which is Howard. University's radio station? They I just. We just did a fantastic feature about the creation of the quiet storm. Just the radio you may allow her. Though it was created by Cathy Hughes. The media magnet the media Maven. Okay TV. Want all of that radio, one. And her number. One hosts for the was Melvin Lizzy data few years ago, but ought to say what they did at midnight was they played album? Start to finish and that's how I heard. About his I expand. Our was my twin because I was listening to the quiet storm, I thought I was grown in then except midnight they would play. An album is so that's how it started to fall. That's how I fell in love with Chardonnay. 'cause I 'cause. You're right. I mean I. Probably would not generally gone to album party. Lead I. DON'T DIG Air Yeah because that was. That was my entry to Charlotte and Emerald Talk I think a little bit younger so like I was listening to marry like I'm trying to think of what I was. You know what I mean into Janet like you know what I mean like I 'cause. I know all the gene. Our rooms you know, but but I loved that day in that she comes no I. Don't want me like methods that is I, think example. I Hate, crime. Quick I wanted to get to our big question. We asked you know, but use it. I JUST WANNA sing. You remember that album. I mean hey, hey, hey, you can't. Day, but you also try to cut right to the end of the Rectus No, I tried to kill the podcast. But you know what your to your point. That's what I love about music. It's person right in. which you feel, you feel what you don't you don't and know judgments and lag. I, ask our guest today on show array special question. I asked her. If you could describe yourself in five song, and what would they be in to be clear? Describe yourself not your top five right because we do that all the time like these are the five songs I love. Sing. I love to hear the SU I'm saying if you could describe your s in who you are like who argues in by Psalms. And how much did we have trying to answer that Gauri? We had so much fun all right so as you. Episode I was a little, caught off guard. We weren't ready myself my personal self but Like good nerds, we are yet. I did a little homework prepared. Queen Night, boy! Are you in by songs I? Am that girl by Stevie wonder? Levy Clever Erica Bidoon. Definition by black star. Southern girl by Maze. October song by Amy Wine House. Emma bonus to songs. Are you will rise best feedback? In sugar and spice. By the VANDROSS. meaning. By plus Tucson's. Who Are you? Who are you Charlie? Okay I'M GONNA. Try to get I it's the hardest thing I've ever done. Okay love of my life Erica by do his. You know waving girl love story. Hello is hip. Hop is hip hop Ode to hip hop in love in cute elevate clearly so emotional. Who Whitney Houston, because one like everyone else. I love for her panelists are, but also it's the best again. I'm the most emotional person best friend by brandy in again for the meaning, it's about, but also because I value the friend that I am to myself to women to people. My life and I just feel like I'm the best I love your smile Chinese 'cause y'all gnomes smiling constant. And my bonus obey my bonus to. Corey have his three year grow I. will yet I love for the go court. I do. Sweeping shackle time because I just think that's my best disposition. Right like a sweet person kind like that's my bye-bye and my ex. The other one is isn't she? Lovely by CD. Wonder because that was about his daughter Dad. told me that in that just really became a song that just to me represented daddy daughter Now's such. Daddy's such a daddy's girl, so I know we said five A. Maybe we should tell everybody to do at seven fascists by building possible, but if you can do it in five Hashtag, guest or podcast, who are you in five songs? You can hear Gina's Los next and the great interview that we have. Chug hand. You love. I'm feeling good, because although we've been dealing with a lot a lot as a as a people. I was reminded because I was at a June team celebration in the Parche. Vast up NASA matched up. Master messed up. I heard snow music, and we stood up for just a quick BOP lake and I realized how much use aches. Is lying his ass. It really an full disclosure. The I was in the park. It was a is an event called the layout, and it was the purpose of it is for people to take a moment from protesting from all the saints in just kind of reporting to themselves and as I was there. It made me think about like who also my favorite artist. Who Am I? Some of my favorite people who work music you know, then I remembered that time we had the great moment down in essence festival at the spotify house. Wrap the Hartsdale Speaking like can, we can talk about this. Who Can? Sum Up Using my using black, you like Missouri. And I said we have the. We have to call Medina picket. Global Head of be in Seoul the spotify. Hey imaging. Thank you. Here with our say, are we saying your name because I want to? Thank you can irritate. We've been talking for so long. Charlie are both love music so much I have I worked with you our top to do personally professionally. I love you both in the DMV, Yup Yup. DC. Let me stop as PG county for me I'm just saying girl good. We the area arena. I know last week all about Fort Worth but I did go to high school in PG, county, so I'm representing I as you rep of Corey and. I had soup, but we had to have you on here because I. Personally not at the really enjoy my spotify experience and what I love the most in Charlie contest. This is the ram be playlist, and I hear that was all because of you. Tell us. Nellis. The playlist A. R. E. N. B. E.. y'All. That was genius that would dispelling is genetic you. Thank you, so we launched the plane Louis About five years ago. So this is the fifth year anniversary it last year. At essence, we were celebrating crossing five million followers globally but that is our flagship rb playlist And Yeah. It's it's a pleasure for us to to curate it. You know that's the that's the destination for the top. Performing Hottest. Rb, you know tracks so now. Wait wait you keep saying they they issue. is You write? It's you that's your name. Yeah. Yeah I'm part of the editorial team at spotify, and yes, I do oversee arm. Be So yes, yes, this. The creation of a few heads they got together in. decided to to do this so. Take all the credit for myself by Matt. I love that you can't. Do that every time I opened it up and I see something new on their. Pitcher you just sliding like dropped into play lists like. Let me give this the people. Can See. Like is doing this. She gave me. That's how that's how it goes in my head. That may or may not have A. Tacoma's point like music is like you know. What I, also love is how how wonderfully spotify kind of integrates authorized devices. Listen Google play you know whatever playlist I need in that moment I can't even agree my kitchen unless I'm playing the baker. Right it has. Like I. Don't know why and when that started, but what? I'm pitching ritual, I think. Thing literally young. It's light lack I mean you can hear a song it. It'll take you right back to where you were when you heard it in infantry. That like that's the connection I have with some songs myself you know so now it's it's a beautiful thing before spotify you worked at a number of places, but even before that. Where did you develop this? Love for music is almost love is not even a strong enough word. I mean it's really a passion. Yeah, it's it's like. Blood is my in my veins. well, you know I'm from DC. DC's a musical city. You know, go go you know live music lose. That's what. I. Want. Okay. No but. You know. I grew up around music. And you know my family is musical. You know whether you know it's it's. You know the playing instruments, or even you know just listening I was always around music so and it's always moved me sell even. you know it was a hobby to make playlist and make mix tapes. You know I've always known that I would be involved in music somehow, but I've always also been camera shy. And stagefright so I kinda also knew that You know for me to have a happy life in a successful life I would have to work in music, but in the background. So. That's always been like what my driver has been just following my passion, and following just the the excitement of. Even letting somebody discover a song that I might have heard. You know like that is like the best feeling I've always had. You know growing up like Oh you know this song though you know. That's always been the thing so I went to college at Clark Atlanta, and I'm quoting you see. was there and I started working at the college station, there went on to be one of three as an intern and my first job in the industry with that WGC in DC, which was extra special, because it was the station that I grew up listening to Magin. Feeling I had to be able to actually work there. You know on an end to develop my craft. I literally learned how to program. And and you know to cater to the listeners in into even the part of discovering music like the fact that I was able to sit in on meetings, and there could be a case where it's like Oh okay, this is the single, but we should play this song. Eleven, you know like that kind of you know passionate and what drove me? You know Until after WGC moved to New York. To get the h one and there was programming a channel Kobe one soul. Grow and I Program H, four few years, memory and And and. Talk about a blessing, like I mean just the it was therapeutic for work was therapy. Even doing that, you know. And, once I left there. Also did a little at the video acquisitions for MTV I was in the Viacom. Building for for a long time, and once I left there. It's funny like on my last day of work I was in my office packing up. and. Somebody walked in and just handed me the job opening for my position at spotify. Wow, and they were, and they were literally like here. Here's something for you and I was like look guy seriously happened like that and. It was a crazy time because I wasn't even interested. At the moment I was Kinda I think there was a whole restructure, so I was at a devastated at the time so I was like what do i? Do Do I. Go back to school. Do I change industries? Maybe I should teach. Maybe I should get into law. Maybe I should do all these other things and I took a break. Break for a minute I maybe maybe a few weeks, but these few weeks a month that I kind of took off more people started sending me the same job description, and it was even people that left the company when I did, and they were like one searches, but when they would five it, it was, it was like a family kind of thing and people like no, maybe not maybe not. And then like one day. It was almost like I was forced. To do it by. That was at home, and something told me just just send it in and I. Think being you know a few weeks or two later. I got a call in and got it, and it was the most amazing thing because this was the whole industry at new area that we I didn't know any. Pools for. All the tools yet yep, it the whole journey, and and that's really my point I guess like each job and each physician that I've had has always has always prepared me for the next step. You know me realizing it. Uniform we can talk about your passion all day but I'm curious how you marry a passion. With data because something I was reading your rolling stone interview and you were saying like on Mondays guys get this notice dot of data, and you have to go through it. But how do you marry? Like is what they're saying is hot, but over here this song right here is GonNa. Move this like. How do you marry both of that? It's kind of a a a measure of both gut and data. You know like you. You have your gut, but you can back it up with data. You know and I think that's the. That's the good part about it. When when when you're so passionate about it and you feel like you're an expert. Ben To have something that I told you, but you know in radio though I guess. The data we got was weekly. So that's the biggest difference in the biggest change now in in streaming. It's immediate, so we're able to literally like. You know use use our heart, but you know in real time can see like if we're right quicker. Than than in radio so now you know we all know the moment you fall in love with the song it instant, and so and the first time you hear it right? That thing happens for you when you're 'cause you listen to so much new music you know, and then you get to feel with that moment when you know it's going to be a hit. What is it like for you when you hear a song? How do you like you feel like this? Is Sales Gear Shale? chills like sometimes I I was moved to cry recently over. Isn't a phone is out. It's called I need you? By an artist called Emmanuel. And when I? Know the melody. Melody and lyrics like as soon as it played I think it was just even the watch the music started. He didn't even single word yet. Just hearing the piano I just and I. Don't know if it was like quarantine sensitivities, you know being inside, and and you know all you have to do the self care and make sure where it, so you know I'm probably just in a mental or whatever but I. Think, he would feel it. I mean you have to have a heart? Anyone that has a heart. Shit should feel it, but his voice is in Djelic. It's a beautiful song. It's something about those invalid voices two story court I. Don't think you were in the opposite this moment. You might not have been there, but years ago when Luke James Cain to essence for the first time and he put. His like his Hanno keyboard. Sorry, new, bring Elvin there? He brought his keyboard. He sat down and he saying. Acapella I believe it was I. Want You are one of this heads? It might have been, but he would that range. Yet I. At yes, and I remember like we had I was thinking berries, because like at the end of him singing, I felt myself tearing and I just realized that song be so happy I happy cry, but it wasn't just the song because you know love songs great, but it was like you know we now know. But you did. It right right? They were in the style. I happen to be in the audience. Majini PJ more performance. He called you up from the stage. and. He was like it was Medina that me I began. Was My, Song. And I remember coming into after like. y'All I'm glad you. She was like it was always the one. One at I remember after that moment I went back and listen to it prey on Uber at home at opposite this song. This song I mean it makes me think like I wish it was the bigger song, but then I also like that is not that big, because it makes it more mine or right all right now. Who James Connection I, Dunno, I just love that. You feel that I that you've been blessing anointed to CEO thank you to tap into that with music because music I mean. Heels. If it connects us, you know like like I'll be honest. in Charlie forgive me for having another dnv moment. But route liberal store real short story I moved from Texas to Maryland totally different and coming into. Go Go I was like what is this like I? Didn't I didn't get it like an also Gogo was very masculine. I was I was trying to drums in the and I was like what is happening, but we then had a program A. It was a black fisherman program where they kind of. Did How music from Africa you know now lives in Gogo and when they had those drummers come out, it was like the clouds parted the sea I was like. I know I. Remember sitting in the audience in ninth grade like blue. Oh you know what I mean and I. That about music like. Because when they got I. Guess what I'm trying to say. As you also are educating William late, Lissette spotify, because you guys also give a lot of information right right. Is that the goal? Yes, absolutely you know and also to help. The artists get a better connection with their with their listeners and their users. To drive engagement with them in even to encourage them like with we have this. Tool call spotify for artists and. Artists can go on there. They can make their own profile page. They can submit for play listing, but they can also see their own analytics. You know and I know a lot of artists like to use it in. See about You can see who you are you're you're listening. Audiences but you can also see who they're listening to. A lot of artists can even see you know even whether it's collaboration on a song, or you know show or whatever, and also they're able to see the demographic of whether audiences. So so, they're able to see. I guess once able to go back outside right. They WANNA do. Or something that could say you know what it's people that like me a thousand fans in Houston I can. I can do a show their you know. A uniform you you see I can see that coming to live right because I was gonna say thank God for streaming, because artists get to see how many like these side tracks he, we love because back when you were playing the seedy or the cassette and you just skipped over some of the hastily. Didn't know they were I. Don't know, but now as I go to a concert and I'm like. Quay like when we having Raphael Sadique in when he played Away. They'll railway. We all lost our minds. Everybody's telling you. I thought that was my little secret. Video, but you just didn't feel like it. Was that mainstream I was anybody song though exactly, but when you look at the streams, the streams never lie, and you actually see that showing up artists concert. Play the one. And that helps to I was gonna say I know a few artists. There was one artists that came in and he was talking about. It was an album cut that we had in a playlist and it he saw that it was getting a lot of traction, and he ended up adding it to his settlers, and was like twenty years old, an album cut, and and he even said like that song gets the most reaction. He didn't realize how much people love album cut, you know. It's like a rope guidemap guide. That your fans hearts Ya yeah. Emmy for the catalogue artist. You know like I said for for them to win. They're figuring out a set list. You know you can. You can go and steal like what your fans I. Literally Listening to and which songs you better play. In your concert. Actually you don't to talk to you now about is The black lives matter playlist that you guys have right now because. I was kind of interesting to find out that it was created after Sandra, bland. In? How do you take something that is so horrible you know. but then you turn it into again education. You turned into community and. You turn it into a love letter now to see that it. Keeps growing I I saw some numbers that even June teams like we Charlie and I had a podcast. We'd never heard June teeth major so much in the last right. Right in life. A man and you guys. You know even tap into, but you guys have already done the work. It was more organic and I. Think all the people you know. We work in media of all the companies and tell me like we're doing juicy this year. I'm really only kind of felt a tug for spotify. Because I was like you guys have been doing this. He talked you created curated that in yes. Oh, the black lives matter playlist yet. It's we started right after. The death of Sandra Bland and it was. How could we not? That's really what it what like. We were at work and we couldn't concentrate and end the best thing we could think about to do with music listening to music listening to the songs that resonated with us You know whether it was A hike or or protests on like all right or or black butterfly by Denise Williams but songs that soothed us in an resonated with how we were feeling, and it was, we were made it collaborative people just put the songs in, and we ended up at the end, just liking the body of work that we had and felt like it did cover the emotions of what of what we were feeling and we thought that maybe the users would agree or or or feel feel like we did. It was the therapeutic process, honestly and that's that's really how it started It's it was a slow build. You know like it started in two thousand fifteen. We featured it a few times and up until about two weeks ago, it had forty thousand followers. Now. It has like over eight hundred fifty thousand, so you know even that letting us know like you know. Music is powerful, and and it was resonating, so it touched us, so we knew it would touch others you know, and going back to what you guys are saying about music. Also you know educating spotify using music to educate. A under fifty thousand people. Are here are stories because Blackie been telling stories through music since the beginning and if they're not listening in any other way. That they'll listen to the music and speaking of black people and stories, you know we're seeing which I think is beautiful, so many black men and women now really coming out, and just talking about what it's like to be black in their world in their at their job and you are you know music is still very much a white male for the universe in industry? What is it like to be a black woman on top in the music industry? I wouldn't say on top. Global would nab. Gloat fire far and I. We were going to attack. Africa over the holidays it yeah. A block woman deriving NFL. White male dominated industry difficult. As I'm sure, you can both attest it's. This is a hard industry for us and You know it's not easy. It's not easy, but you know added blessed with great colleagues. You know great managers, a great tribe of people like minded Folks and I think that made a heck of a difference to have encouragement along the way but it's it's hard. It's hard. You have what I think. wentz driven me has been my passion, and just knowing that in my heart. I'm true to myself and I love what I do genuinely so that's been my real driver, but no, it's hard. It's hard. I can imagine and then especially like you know. I'm sure you have not just at spotify, but in general you have artists and different people in like recognizing who are the even the power players you. Your team are controlling. Will we hear you know everybody like Corey said. spotify is is like an addiction. It's literally live by you know and. Explore and find new music for the most part you know. It's like the have that power in black lamb in you know I know it's not always remain is still a struggle. We still have to validate at thoughts and opinions, and in the work is challenging, and it's exhausting. I've tying. I'm tired. We are. Exactly. Pandemic I'm having a meeting than I had before the. It's hard. You know, but again it. What's rewarding is knowing that you know what I never stopped being true to myself in speaking up. You know and I think that's the challenge that we all have week especially now like no, we have to keep fighting. Like as exhausting as it is as much as I I think there's been times where I have said you know what this is is so much is so much and I think I got. Somebody snapped me out of it. It was just like what think about the people coming behind you. And I was like. that. Thing like it is hard, but yeah, we gotta keep going like. It's hard to remember how white the industry is. Because you know Madam and even try you know when we go to events is. What I need people like I know. Your circle of Friends Medina like they're all at the top and to know that there's a whole other layer it. Isn't. But I think it was the main and it reminds reminds me which you just said about you know some of my friends and just might try In that big, instead like behind or beside every successful woman is the tribe is text threat. Of Women. event. You know it's an I think that's what that's. What's help you know I? Mean that's what we need. You know the justice. Tribe of encouragement and the village to keep pushing.
