My name's Matt Landry and filling in from five with this news, and we need to get the dirt from our friend Elizabeth. Recently. Cities live this morning, you guy? I'm not used to talking to you on this platform. Elizabeth. What a fun surprise school really love it. This is so great. Well, it's nice to be with you guys on this. Fine Monday morning, and I just want to start with some really sweet nice news, which is that Katherine Schwarzenegger and Chris Pratt have welcomed their first child together s O. They had their baby and we knew that this was going to happen. Chris Pratt said recently that she was about to pop, which I don't know. Sometimes when people say that's a little much I don't like it. I know I'm just an extra sensitive pregnant person. No, it's not cool that you're not a balloon. People are like are they're twins in there? That's also just want you to No, wait. So sit down. Say that. Oh, yeah, right. Like there must be twins in there. And you're like, really? Oh, no, no, no. Whatever next, they're not worth your time moving. So this is Katherine Schwarzenegger's first child and Chris's second child. He and his ex wife on a Ferris have a son. Jack Andi. These two got married in June of 2019. And, um, this is Arnold Schwarzenegger's and Maria Shriver's first grandchild. Oh, right, right, just the 1st 1 at the house. It was the 1st 1 out of also they seem to be really happy and You know, Get ready to go, guys. Here you go. Oh, my gosh. Wow. And the reality is having a baby during the pandemic. I know that you have some new family members in your household Ideo family through new babies. Two new babies so far have shown up in the last month. They just keep coming. And Yeah, they did pretty well. I mean, I think we're luckier here in Minnesota. If you're in California area in New York, it's a lot different. I mean, everybody I know in California is like it's a struggle, right? I mean, we weren't able to go into the hospital. To visit my sisters when they just had their babies over the last few weeks, But their spouses were able to be in there. No problem, and they got really amazing care and all of that, so they were feeling really good about it. That's one of the populations that I am just thinking about all the time these days is we, You know, talk about the news than what's going on, and I just it just breaks my heart. I know that that these family members of folks who need that, you know, intensive care, whatever it might be, for whatever situation, baby, your cove it or who knows you can't go be there with them. You know that critical moment, and it just It just really hurts that and the folks in our long term care facilities. It really makes me that feeling of isolation that we kind of thought at the beginning. Oh, maybe it'll just go on for a few weeks. And now it's been months than months. I have a friend who posts like a daily little journal on social media about what her family has been doing since the pandemic, and she started it essentially since Minnesota. Enacted the stay at home order, I believe was the first was like when they said Okay, this is what we're gonna work. She's going to post about this. And the other days. She posted day 1 45 You know, And I just I read the number like four times a day. 1 40 year like this can't be right. This is some kind of a typo or God's Wow. Yeah, that's so I know we all dive down a deep black hole of time. No idea what I think We're all taking it day by day. We're doing our best to just kind of limit our scope because we have to just focus on the here and now because you know, we can't plan anything, and I just don't know, And then you lose sight of the big picture. I know just how many days it's been. It's been so many days. I do want to tell you about Rachel Ray's house in upstate New York. This is making headlines today that a fire just completely ravaged the place. It looks so terrible. So she's on Lake Luzern and images show flames shooting through the roof of the home. So spokesperson for Rachel Ray says she was not injured. She, her husband and their dog Bella are safe, but the house is damaged and they don't know took yet to what extent and she's been working there. I mean, that's where she's been. Producing segments for her daytime talk show. Looks like I love the Rachel Ray. That's just not all in makeup, and I mean she's always kind of genuine. But it's even more so now. Yeah, I haven't watched the her shows. Then she started doing it from home. But I could imagine that her show would be one that would really translate beautifully her being at home and might even end up Being better That way. You can beam or yourself that she's always fabulous. But you know, when you're at your own catching at home, you know, you just gotta let loose a little bit and I know I need to start to boy. 2020. No one is immune to 2020. Even Rachel Ray, is that credible? You know, I wonder what happened. Scary stuff. Okay. Brooklyn. Beckham is wearing a gold band on his finger. Weeks after proposing to his fiance, Nikola Pelts. Do you know of anyone? We're in a heterosexual relationship. The guy wears an engagement ring too well in love that we have one set of friends who did this. Where he weren't engagement ring to do you really? I think it's great. Yeah, it's like it's a sign like back off. He's taken. That's adorable. Don't even think about it. I mean, that ring symbolizes that my whole.
COVID-19 Vaccine Ethics: Who Gets It First and Other Issues
"US government's. Warp speed is ambitiously trying to create test and licensed vaccine for covid nineteen in less than a year compared to the five to ten years typically needed for a new vaccine. The program is borrowing strategies from a crash effort undertaken in the nineteen fifties against polio. Arthur caplan was seven years old when that paralytic disease which had been terrifying parents nationwide came to his town. Last. People. In America. Get. Polio in the Boston outbreak of nineteen, fifty seven, that's where I'm from. Saw Kids in our loans on kids die in the floor. It's one of the reasons I got interested in medical ethics. The Polio vaccine developed in the fifties it saved millions of lives and brought us tantalizingly close to eradicating the disease altogether. But in the haste to produce them researchers and manufacturers occasionally made mistakes and crossed ethical boundaries. Experimental vaccines were tested on intellectually disabled children, for example, as well as millions of people in the Belgian Congo and the Soviet Union who were not given the option for informed consent that today we consider indispensable. Medical ethics come a long way in the past sixty, five years. The World Health Organization has already set up a working group on ethics and Kobe Nineteen of which Kaplan is a member. They have started thinking through many of the tough questions ahead as companies race to test experimental vaccines, and we hope eventually ramp up manufacturing of those who succeed to billions of doses. Worldwide these questions include how can we make sure vaccine trials don't exploit people or enroll too few participants from black native Latino communities who are disproportionately sickened been killed by this disease who will get approved vaccines I and who will pay for them and what if anything should we do about vaccines being sold on the black market? The most immediate questions involve large-scale clinical trials those trials will take months to produce results. Can says, one reason is if I give you the experimental vaccine. Then, I have to wait for the. Virus in nature to infect me to see whether I'm going to do better than a group that didn't get vaccine usually have a placebo control group were you don't give them an active agent and you sort of monitor one against the other. If, you're waiting for natural infectivity with Kobe we have a problem because the Degree to which the becoming infect is very slow. So you'll notice that people are starting to recruit subjects for trials right now in hot spots, they may be looking at Brazil. They may be looking at Atlanta it could be looking at a region of the country that has. A A big outbreak. But at the same time, morally we have to try and tell people who sign up for vaccination studies they should not get themselves infected. So it's a sort of moral catch twenty two, you can't really. Encourage people to be reckless and get themselves. In fact, an the problem is you're probably not going to take sicker people because it makes it difficult to assess whether a vaccine is causing an adverse event or an underlying illnesses causing events. Most of the people who come into these big vaccine trials are healthy volunteer still they're younger. Is An effort underway. In the NIH sponsor trials to try and get more diversity ethnicity and race but a lack of transparency in who is being selected for the vaccine trials has raised concerns that historically underrepresented communities may once again be overlooked. Kaplan says that the preference for healthy volunteers is also one of the reasons that vaccine testers probably won't turn to one otherwise logical place to recruit participants prisons where corona virus has been running rampant, you can't use a vulnerable population because you worry that they can't consent. They're gonNA try and say I'll do it because they want to get out of jail or get parole the other main reason why Is prison populations usually have two or three underlying diseases. I know MTV everybody's at the gym looks such Arnold Schwarzenegger. But in fact, hepatitis HIV drug abuse is a bunch of reasons why they're not a best subjects for for any beginning studies

"But that's kind of how we decided. Obviously, I don't really know what could come I'm like I'm very open to anything. At the end of the day I will do what ever is best for our baby. So that's kind of mentality I have. We'll see in and when you say like You know there's a lot of different opinions out there. It's you have to do with the right thing is for you there in most situations, there's not really a right or wrong. It's what's GonNa make you feel most comfortable and what's going to? Help. You able to get through the birthing process because anxiety is something that's slows birth down it does like help prevent you from opening up and it is really hard and I've seen that because I work as birth I've seen that a lot of births where. We're women. Can't have a hard time dilating because they're in pain and they're fighting it and their bodies tents, and then they get up and they dilate so quickly and ready to give birth you. There's no right way to do it. Yeah that makes me feel better because obviously I don't want to do anything that's not good for the baby and knock like my main concern. But yeah, that that is a good perspective 'cause I. Just I definitely get that way i. get very anxious especially when it comes to thing about things about like fellow and safety I'm very much like worst case scenario type is needed like I, need that like that. But I just I feel like. I I end. There's just so many unknown. I'm you'll to. That's amazing that you have. So you have a lot of experience in that area. I'm sure that's helped with like. You going into that yourself? Yeah. It's helped a lot. I think mostly just because I know all of my options across the board you know and I know everything that I could ask for or. You know or request or anything like that. So. Yeah, it's fun I would recommend if you feel like you're going to be anxious. Make the hospital room homeys. So bring requested the lights be damned bring led candle set them up maybe a diffuser, make a playlist, bring a pillow from home and just try to make that environment because if the hospital lights are on and it's bright and their staff coming in and out of your room that only that's more anxiety. But if you have, you know a picture from your honeymoon with your husband setup and some of your favorite songs playing and the lights are dim with led candles. Or blanket or a pillow from home that like helps create that. Okay. I'm in my comfort zone I can relax or release here you know and just kind of make it smooth transition from home to hospital. At is so smart in probably. So helpful. So thank you were saying I honestly didn't even really think I mean I. Guess I figured you could bring stuff but like I probably wouldn't unless said that I'd be like Oh that people would think that is crazy like no, I can't do that. No, it's not crazy at all. At all I would definitely I mean, obviously talk to your doctor most hospitals don't have a problem with that I mean obviously lighting real candles, I yeah. No I think that would help, and that's how I mean I I'm just hoping that I can just Keep it very call. My husband is the best. He's literally the most chill person ever like no matter what's going on you can always keep his composure in like be calm and I'm not as much like I'm you're going to have to buy like person which he will be but yeah, that's I'm very like that's the only thing that I'm like I guess I just don't know how it's GonNa be because obviously this is my first time and And birth for everybody is so different. So it's not like I can even really like can hear other people in their experiences, but it doesn't necessarily mean that that's what it's to be like you so. Excited nervous that probably the one thing that I've been the most like I think the most about. Just I can't even really wrap my brain around I'm like it hasn't happened yet no snap. Comes right. Like there's a human inside of you that's going to come out of you and you're now responsible for. It will come that is what is happening. It's such. It's such a crazy thought you're like, how is that going to happen, but it does and millions and millions of people have done this forever. So it's like it obviously happens it works everything goes how it should but it is a crazy about yeah I think that that's one conversation. I always look at my husband I'm like we're going to be parents like. I always like I'm just a kid myself link how? How am I? I'm like, wait a minute like what? What and it's also crazy to think like we already kind of our lighten the baby. That's GONNA come out like in there so it's just it's so bizarre to think about it like eventually, and I'm sure it's even crazier for you because I mean you're further along so you like. Feel things you feel you feel a hand it's like those are the same fee insane had that you will be like raising now. So crazy. It is there's an APP on my phone that shows you the exact size of the baby's hand is right now and. Your. Olivia Joe What it looks like on the screen. And today I, just took it and I. I was showing my mom I'm like look that's like the size of the foot that's in me like. Crazy. So? Oh it's so cute. It's like, oh, I just started feeling her move like eighty two weeks ago in it's been Lee best like I have to say his calm I mean I wouldn't say I've been super stressful like any sort of like worries are wonders the second you can kill them moving it just feels so you just feel so much more palm about it because I'm like okay there you are. You're there you're in here moving around like it just like it's such a nice thing to feel I'm sure as they get bigger in there like picking your rib cage like no, I'm good without that. Movement in there. Yeah. Yeah. It's it definitely helps with the connecting and bonding and everything to absolutely. So do you guys have any names picked out? We're having such a hard time. We had a lot of ways picked out which I actually kind of like some boy names for girl names to like kind of like just like. Gender neutral names. So we're seeing if any that we loved the boys like Kinda Crossover, but we're having a hard time also were both very much like we don't want to pick a name until we see her So I feel like we're going to try to have a list of reaffirmed names that we light and then the side once we see her like I don't think we can go and like totally. But then at the same time I hear people like show like give birth have a listening and then pick something totally different. So we're kind of open to that and realize that a lot of it will be based off her when we see her in Asia like she. Looks like I don't know. And that's fun because then. Nobody will know her name until.

So I'm in Utah things have been a little bit things have started to be a little bit more lax here for the past couple of weeks. But definitely, for my first trimester, it was like I wasn't seeing anybody. An honestly I don't think the only thing I think that was different was as far as like my appointments go like Sam could come to the appointments with me come to the ultrasound I it does and I could like. Him updated in that way. So that was the only thing I felt like it was a little bit different also like we did a gender reveal and I only have my immediate family there I definitely would have had friends and. But then when you think about it at the end of the day, like those are the people I care about the most and I'm grateful that I could even just be with them. So it's interesting. I think now that I'm like actually showing I have like I can wear like outfits show my bum. I think I'll start silly matt a little bit more like you said, 'cause. Yeah.

I'm sure and I mean you're even closer than I am so it's probably something you think about yeah absolutely. We've thought about it a lot. Did you have an idea of did you have an inkling of what the gender of your baby was going to be where you like I really feel like it's a boy I really feel like it's girl before you found out. So, I wouldn't say there's an inkling like me and my husband were pretty much ninety nine percent convinced that we are having a boy like. There was no doubt in our mind. It was just was a boy and when we walked off the cannons. Pink Confetti, we both for like. Oh. We were so thrown off and so is Mike my family and it just was so weird because we were so convinced it was a boy I don't really I mean we have a couple reasons like Sam's family. All of the boys in the accused on the excited have at least three boys before they get a girl like it's just very boy heavy. So, we just I just have always assumed like that's what it's going to be like for us like I was always worried that maybe we wouldn't get a girl. So should have a girl on our first one unlike amazing but we were so thrown off like I've never been more shocked in my life I don't think about anything it was just so we're just so silly because it's like, of course, it could totally enrolled why were and so For some reason, we both are just like Oh. Yeah boy. So we weren't even like doing the going into the gender realized This is fun but like I'm not like it's not GonNa, throw me off and then a girl. So that's so exciting. We don't know. I mean is this your? Do you have other kids? No this is my first. But yeah, we decided to wait I know. The weightings been hard but. I have my. So. Ninety nine percent of our family. So all of his family of my family think a boy and I'm like that's why it's GonNa be a girl. She's GonNa come out and surprise us and he got y'all gonna be girl now. Experience you ready for what you don't expect. I honestly, I think I'm going to be shocked either way like. 'cause my husband is convinced he's GonNa. Have all girls so which I mean, he'd be the Best Girl Dad. Ever and Like I know I feel like since everything's a boy girl I'm going to be surprised. But if I have a boy I'm also going to be surprised. Yeah either H. that's so fun though, wow, you guys have great self control like I talked about that was like. Really I just I know myself I would not be able to control it like I would be like. Just, all the. Impressed and that is GonNa be so fun you're to give birth and then be like wait what? I need. I'm excited for you guys. Wish, I could be I mean native second or third baby I could do it. Maybe yeah I think it's also easier after you have a boy and a girl because it's like I already have girl stuff have boy stuff. So this can be a surprise you know. Exactly you're like, then you don't have to worry about going out and buying anything. Yeah. Well, he had to kind of talk me into it. He really really wanted to be a surprise. He's like there's so few surprises left in the world and like. This'll be the greatest surprise ever. So he does he kind of had to talk me into it and there's a couple times.

Fresh update on "arnold" discussed on Babes and Babies
"Was still kind of in that phase of Arina. Panic or are we just Kinda is this just like any other flu? So it was like the week or two before that it was kind of like, okay. Like we we didn't know until like maybe we won't do anymore shows or maybe they'll start canceling but it wasn't quite. To the point yet where we were like, Oh, we're for sure getting sent home. We're going into a long quarantine. So I remember taking the tests and having a show that night and shows all that week and then about five days after taking the tests, we get a call and they cancelled all of our meet-and-greet. They're like everything we're not going to meet and greets anymore because every day you would be taking pictures with one hundred, fifty to two hundred people. So we're like, okay yeah, that makes sense and then. About two days after that a called, we are just sending you home tomorrow. This is your last show tonight. I mean, we really got the news about an hour before going on stage for our last show. So it was. So. Fast. So crazy I mean at the time like I've known as pregnant for about a week now and at the time I was like, okay this is honestly kind of a blessing in disguise for me personally as far as like. It could be very dangerous for me to be 'cause I would have been on the road for another month doing the tour I'm like I don't know how I'm going to be feeling over the next little bit and with sickness and everything. So it was kind of a blessing in disguise for me to be sent home but then obviously, it's been so terrifying in its a lot in like. So devastating for so many people that it didn't really feel like that. But at the same time like I look back and I think it worked out very well timing wise for me Yeah definitely. In your first trimester. I'll have you tell us about yours, but you'd mentioned I mean you didn't feel very well. So that's not a bad time to be home. Oh, exactly. I mean here's the thing I know myself in no matter what I was feeling like if I was still on tour I would just do I'd be fine at get through it I would push through like. Just. A dancers mentality you get hurt you have performance to still do it. You just jam the pain so I definitely would have made it but it wasn't a bad time for me to literally be forced to be home stay in my house with my husband's not go anywhere like I didn't really feel like going anywhere anyway. So it Kinda was like a good time and it also was a good time for me to kind of. Realize that like that's okay that it's okay to slow down it's okay to not have like a crazy busy schedule always be traveling working and it helped me sort of get accustomed to that which I think is important because obviously after have our baby, I'm not gonNA be able to do every single work thing that comes up and I'm glad that I had that time sort of like sit with myself and be like, okay like mentally it is totally okay for me to have this day and just wrote my baby and that was was a hard transition but at the same time I, think. It was really good me. Yeah. Yeah. For sure we're going to take a quick break to talk about right now you can say fifteen hundred dollars or more a year by using policy genius to compare life. Insurance. Policies. When you're shopping for a policy that could last decade or more those savings really start at up we don't I recently went on this journey. We're thinking a lot about our futures and just trying to be smart and we're like we should probably get life insurance and there was tons of information out there. But going to policy genius DOT COM was so easy they make it. Such a seamless process for you. So I'm going to tell.

Three months ago I was like waking up in the middle of the night. Like does it suck, you know. And, and then had to work through so like what am I afraid of? And then finally I got a place like you know what I'm so excited for to be out and I'm so excited for people to read it and I'm excited here. What hits? What doesn't what like I'm just excited? Yeah, it's like I'm ready. Yeah, and by the way it's so normal as a creator. Especially I mean as an author. No matter how many books right you still are like you vacillate between. I think this is pretty good and oh. Oh, my gosh is is total garbage. What was I think? And it's been it. That's the wild thing. It's such a solo process for so long right like you and a couple of editors like. Sammy and my mom a year you know. And then it's just like you with these words for so long, and now it's GonNa be very public experience, the android like shocking, but also like by by the last week of waiting for it to be out by. Let's just gut. Let's deal. Yet and I'm ready and I'm like so happy. It's in the world and I just I just feel so proud of it in so west at about. So the buckets about okay, so you'll know this because we've been friends for so long I wanted to write a book for. Just one of those people like fifteen right like I, WanNa. Write a book and we were at happy. Hour. Like probably five years ago, you're looking at me like worldwide. Why don't you want yeah like I, don't. In I. Think Realizing I'm not sure what I had to say I'm not sure what I wanted to say. Just wanted to write a book, which is not the best place to right from. And then I went through the season of. coming out of leaving, everything is sort of. To pursue something, different of facing so many fears, I had in what many finally wanNA write. That story was realizing actually how universal was so going through this experience of I. Don't want to be true to who I am. Because that will disrupt too many people around me. And for people who don't know your story I know you've been on the podcast several times for people who don't know you what what was disruptive about who you were. Yes, so I was a a group in the church, and then I was a pastor to mega church. And then I discovered more about my own sexuality through meeting. My now wife, who was then my best friend. Use All right through that and in in that right coming out. That was not a place where it's okay to be gay. And not only that specific place, but the culture I grew up in like the church culture. The church seen in when you work at a church. It's not just your job, right? It's your friends. It's your family. It's your networks like I remember thinking if I don't work here. Can I work with a Christian College I e so workout if I can't work there camera, the other Christian College I used to go to like my whole network and world. And then deeper than that, my identity was really tied to believing certain things in in going to church on Sunday and knowing that God had a plan in it was a specific plan and and I was gonNA. Step outside of that in so like layers on my heirs of disrupting probably every structure in my life to the point and so that's. Part of what I wanted to write, because none of that was easy. Right in this life now that I'm. Grateful, for in could never have imagined. Life could be good, and I'm my marriage in this family were creating but it was so hard. It was so hard to get there and. Yeah and it felt it felt singular. Felt like I'm a mega church pastor who came out in and disrupted my whole life and is very specific. In at the same time. Highlight got messages like when we came out publicly. From people who had gotten divorced from people who have gotten pregnant before they're married people grip in the church and started realizing this common. Narrative and I was like. Wow, that is so that means so much to me what they're saying from like a different story. Absolutely nothing I started realize like. Oh, my gosh is is more universal truths. Happening here like more people should be allowed to to face this this reality and be true what they feel like they're. They need

Her our land by another white Christian male. You're invincible. Had the right and you're entitled to it. All and I have hundreds of years of that behavior that I have to break inside of he as it applies to. My own personal behavior is let alone how on acting public way. Oh. I'm immensely grateful for that honesty and I'm and I'm immensely grateful that you wrote this book. That can really give us some of that history. Some of that data help us look in the mirror in ways that feel clarifying and also. Illuminating where we go from here because to me. I think a lot of people ask me when we have conversations as well. Doesn't that feel heavy? No To me. It feels inspiring to me. It feels illuminating to me. The entire point of being alive is to learn and dig deeper and evolve and grow and I. think that this is really. The most important kind of evolution us as a as a society right now you know we've got to be able to look into our past in order to move into a new kind of future, so I am so excited for the book to come out I'm so excited for the listeners to get to read it and I can't wait.

"Do I do to be a part of something bigger than myself, and so from that moment in Washington DC when I stood on stage, look down at SC. Millions pink hats. And then later that day came to a television screen grid. Every city around the world was blown away by it to happen as past Saturday when I was doing virtual workshop, and I kept the zoom rsvp, the Zoom runes are only one hundred people, and like seven hundred women tried to live in and to participate in a conversation about white women, holding white women account of all, and what that means in so again everybody hopes is thumping differently today and we had access to. Information and we're more connected than we've ever been. So there's a huge opportunity and I genuinely believe it's a very short window like as in a couple of years like a single digit amount of years for us to actually hold the frontline and keep pushing forward. told the frontline and continue to push feels like a really really important. Call to action that resonates very deeply with me. Yeah, and I think one of the things that one of the ideas that I've been wrestling last, and as I try to answer a lot of these women in these conversations when they say things like I'm not sure what I'm supposed to do. I think that we all need to be looking for frontlines in places where we haven't traditionally so civic engagement for decades and generations have been voting calling your senator in recent years in in the sixties marching donating to different organizations, but to me. That's like so super obvious like next, please. What's the real work and? I'm calling. My reader and women who look like me and had similar life experiences to me in this country is juicy. We can find new frontlines to do. Civic were which isn't like. Oh. Let me go find another preschool to do not a fundraiser for yet. That's important, do it, but it's really hold ourselves accountable in examine our biases examine how we're making excuses for institutions or the men, the men in our life Out very much, thinking about our behaviors and our thoughts. As relates to the most marginalized as relates tour insecurities, as it relates to our role in world to though that's where the front lines are. As I always say it's probably at your front lines in a room with you. Okay, so we're talking today, and and you're in a place of perspective on the systems that we all partake in whether consciously or unconsciously. Where did this kind of passion for change and the desire to fight for others? Come from was. Was this in you? Always you know was was ten-year-old Jenna. Out There? Banging pots and pans. You know trying to call attention to social issues. Yeah, so there was this book I had I had trouble reading I. Was Eleven and for context for those listeners who are in the education space the. Average reader starts at around five or six. So I couldn't read for a while, so it was really passionate about finding other ways to engage and. Participate in subjects in school and there was this book. Is titled Three Hundred Sixty five ways to make the to save the world or to make the world better is some sort of environmental book, and it was like a brick in your toilet to displace a certain percentage of water, because it's like every twits. If you flashed on, it's extending water right. That you're being the. Pack that plastic thing that whole hands together until I would like I was doing. That destroyed a couple. The toilets because the brick idea doesn't actually make sense because bridges, clay dissolves and destroys toilets, which my father won't let me forget, but there were she like all these things you can do this to save the rainforest like that was the big thing when I was a kid with saving the rain. When can we just go back to saving the rain forest and so yeah, it was, and I do think a lot about why I was so obsessive about so many of those things because I don't I don't see it reflected in a lot of my immediate world, but. There's definitely a calling to. The resembling appalling that pulled me to a place of you've got some work to do here. I felt that to that that National Geographic. VHS. Of six videos, I watched the one on the rainforest. I think until the. Tape burned through. And I and I just I was inconsolable about the fact that it was being cut down on my parents. You know would just look at me with those sort of horror. Of what do we do with this child? Who Won't stop crying about these treat? Right, so yeah I. Feel that very deeply. To be clear like I do order. Online and I do have locked boxes shopping my front door and so in holding myself accountable. I'm not necessarily protecting the way that I would like to I. Mean I think again? We haven't really designed a world that. Makes it easy for us and as humans we need to create systems that make it simpler to live better an in better communion with the planet, and we just do because we can't. We can't be you know filling our toilets with bricks. As remember being very annoyed with you doing that. What? What were your parents like? Where did you grow up? What was what was kind of the the world around you I was. I had a very average suburban child I grew up outside via to an architect and a nurse, and I had a lot of officials, sports and I came from a huge family knew, and we spend our summers together at the Beach House, and that was always really important, because I knew that no matter what happened the I'd always have a couch that I could sleep on. There was always out safe so. mistake denied of extended families and I. Guess they're couches. Always let me jump. Off slightly more speak class and my parents I. Think probably you the same way with just like Oh. That's huge. Three R S. I guess we'll get her some tropical birds. For her birthday or like it wasn't they didn't and then when I was in high school. I decided that I needed to see more of the world. My Mom said it was always like you're a caged tiger array.

Bill Noble on Garden Design
"Now. You were not a garden designer. Then and here you came to this place, and there's views of mountains and feels, and it feels like a big open place, but. You weren't a garden designer. SORTA figured out how to make a plan. And you speak about in the book about measuring the House and measuring the distance to things and kind of drawing and taking photos and kind of pinning up that and some inspiration on almost like a mood board to get started like you know to figure out what you were going to do, yes. Yes I came here not as a gardener. But I felt that I needed to learn really quickly. And and the way I learned was that. I had been farming and. As I. Tell Maybe in the book I made. Five thousand dollars at it. My first year felt great, and I made five thousand dollars at farming my last year and I'd had enough. And I landed a seasonal job restoring a half miles worth of white, pine and hemlock hedges at the Saint God's national historic site, in Cornish, which was the garden of Augustus Saint Gaudens and was part of an artist colony that included architects, landscape, architects and artists. Like Gerald Plot and Ellen Shipman And I really immersed myself. In the Garden Gardens, but it, but then in learning about the gardens that those artists had made. A really came to gardening? As an art form I. And then I had to learn. How to draw. and. Deal with hard scape, which still not very good at. but the National Park. Service was great about supporting. It staff. By providing training and I spent a couple years running down to Boston to Cambridge to the Radcliffe Institute and to the Arnold Arboretum and guarding the woods and learning the trade there. Okay, I'm applying it. on the job at Saint Gaudens and here and in some of the other Corner Gardens. I see so. One of my favorite parts of the book, besides all those big leafed plants in that was seventy foot, long border or something. It's just magnificent. Is that you make a list in the book that I find especially helpful I think you call it guiding principles and and I know this was after the fact because you started making the garden in nearly thirty years ago or twenty years ago, and you wrote the book just recently, but but it's good for those of US making Gardener Getting Ready to find tuna. Revise our gardens to think about guiding principle so is this something like this sort of self assessment? What do I really care about? Is this something you do with clients when you first visit there places? If the let me get away with it, yes! And, sometimes, sometimes more successfully than than others. Yeah I don't have a form. That I had a a client, but I I WANNA. I as a designer WANNA be able to understand the context. The built context, the living context the landscape context. And the social context as well as how the Oman Gardner is going to use the US the space use the garden, and what their what their goals

NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell says "we were wrong" amid protests
"Twenty NFL commissioner Roger Goodell is issued a statement on the video saying that the NFL was wrong for not listening to players who have been protesting against police brutality but the player who started the protests and got the most notice Colin Kaepernick is still not on any NFL team Carol Lee Scott west talked about it with Chris Arnold from one oh five three the fan I wish it was a simple solution to all of this but the world is very complicated and the NFL and Colin Capra Nick are quite similar to where Major League Baseball is with his players union sports fans would love to see baseball this summer you think it would be an easy thing to do yet the union and the baseball owners they don't trust each other and that's where the NFL is with calling cabinet it was it would seem okay the NFL based on what Roger Goodell's video was all about they understand the protest they understand that the players what they tried to do peacefully M. and draw attention to police brutality but the leader of the message S. issues with the NFL and the NFL has issues with him they tried to answer JZ basically they tried to split the baby but although JZ had alignment with Colin Capra Nick they didn't work this thing out before JZ Gadda bar with the NFL so does more distrust then there was the opportunity for Capra Nick to have a tryout different teams wanted to test the water maybe try him out and may be added to a roster because of the mistrust on both sides that was a disaster and you can think of point on both sides but most people don't know the entire
Economic Fallout From COVID-19 Is Hard On Landlords Too
"Explored the uncertainty from a lot of different perspectives and nothing can feel more destabilizing. The Not knowing if you're going to be able to make your rent next month we've heard on this show about how much renters who've lost income from the current crisis are struggling today. We're going to hear from the other side of that relationship. The landlord my name is Marilyn. Jim I am a small mom and pop landlord in Seattle with my husband We live in a triplex with our children and our tenants. Our House was built as a single family home in nineteen twelve by an Irish immigrant. Who had eighteen children and so? It's a good sized home sometime. In the past it was divided into a triplex. They both have day jobs but they rely on the rental income they get from several properties around the city. You know my husband will be the guy who's pushing the lawnmower so our tenants know us get to know us very well. They see us. They know that our family lives here. And and You know it's it's very much a personal up close up front relationship but that relationship has taken on a new sense of gravity since the financial crisis triggered by the pandemic all. Her tenants paid late in April and then in. May One of her tenants couldn't come up with the money at all. We came to the table with some ideas of what we could do to help. Meet them in the middle and we've come up with a plan that will take us through the next two months and then we're going to check in again in June and reassess but you know my husband and I have also had the conversation of ultimately. How long is this going to last? How long can we last? They're worried because they don't have a lot of extra money on reserve to float their mortgages if their tenants can't pay. We're not hoarding money here. And so we don't have a large cushion to tap into to get through something like this or mortgage lender is only allowing three months of forbearance and they want full repayment. At the end of free months it's hard for us to think. How are we going to get through if Are Tenants get to the point? Where there are no longer able to pay. Npr correspondent. Chris. Arnold has been looking into the dilemma that Maryland yet and many small landlords find themselves in right now and he joins us. Hey Chris Rachel so what stood out to you in Maryland Story. Will I think a lot of people are in the situation? And th there's all kinds of landlords out there and I think people tend to think about landlords is like big mean faceless corporations or you know as people rubbing their hands together wanting the money but there's just a lot of mom and POPs who were regular people and they wanna keep good tenants and they want to help them but they do depend upon this rental income right because they're not be corporations. They got bills to pay to like their mortgage and Congress mandated help for homeowners and that includes small landlords like Maryland. Were in exactly the situation and so when you play the interview for me. The the big red blinking alarm light that I heard in it was. She said that her lender told her that if she skipped payments she have to pay them all back in just a few months in this giant lump sum doesn't make any sense in this crisis in this kind of big balloon. Payment thing is is absolutely not the way that this is supposed to work. Okay so how is it supposed to work but good question So we should say that this is four home loans that our government back so by Fannie Mae or Freddie Mac and a lot of people don't even realize that their home mortgages backed by the government and somebody but seventy five percent of all homeless in the country are and so as Maryland's I checked and experts at. I've talked to say that for the vast majority of people who were struggling financially in this outbreak for them the rules say that they should make payments again when they're able to and it should be the same monthly payment their payments should not go up no big crazy. Lump sum payments should just get moved to the back and of the loan term. Okay so if it's a thirty year loan now. It's a thirty year loan plus say six months of missed payments on the back end. If these are the rules Chris Wise Maryland hearing something different and can Marilyn just push back yes she absolutely can and I've talked to borrowers who have done that. And sometimes they get a much better answer. And here's what's been going on. And after a lot of initial confusion. The Mortgage Bankers Association says that the companies are dealing with this much. Better this better information out there but the current system has a complicated set of rules and it relies on on lenders. Who've got like call center workers working from home they have to interpret this complicated set of rules properly and borrowers are sort of at the mercy of their lenders getting this right and arguably. It's not really going that well for a lot of people look at what. Maryland's going getting all SPAN INFORMATION. So that's why there are growing calls from Congress to fix this. I talked to Steve. Sharp with the nonprofit National Consumer Law Center. It's so important. We believe for Congress to step in and clearly state through law that for folks who have covid nineteen forbearance the real default should be putting their mortgage payments at the end of the lowe. Okay so just make that. The default make it automatic. So there's confusion the payments. Just go on the back end right and and some members of Congress do WANNA do this. There's a bipartisan group of State Attorneys General who were pushing for this to the CEO of a mortgage company. I talked to likes the idea and I actually called up and talked to Maryland and her husband again and I. Currently they're using their tenants security deposit and the last month's rent to sort of make up some of the difference of the rent that they're not able to pay but that's not going to be able to go on for too much longer and Maryland said look at mean having the certainty of this default option would make them much more comfortable skipping mortgage payments so that they could afford to be more flexible with with their tenants. Yeah because then. We wouldn't even need to be talking about drawing down from the money that they already put on deposit with us you know we could leave that untouched We would definitely have a whole lot more flexibility to to really see you know if if they are drawing from their savings. Maybe they don't need to do
Diving Deep with Melissa Joan Hart
"I would love to just kind of start off talking about. I mean you've kind of been in the limelight for most of your life. Now you've been behind a screen and I'd love to hear Maybe how that has affected you. Would you let your boys do acting if they wanted to get into it? Just kind of love to hear your story a little bit. You know the thing is. I didn't know any other childhood right. My childhood was I had a fairly normal childhood where I grew up with my parents siblings on a Dead End Street Long Island walking to school every morning riding my bike valet classes. Because my parents couldn't take me because were too many children in our house. and But I also auditioned ended. Theater ended commercials and stuff like that so I think it was a little bit short of the way anybody else would take take a hobby seriously if somebody was a major soccer player at school and doing really well with that or if someone was gymnast and be being pulled out of school at the time for certain events started Nowadays everyone does travel. I don't travel was a big thing when I was growing up. But like you know missing. School for work was kind of odd but it was what I knew and everyone else had a lot of questions about it and I got very embarrassed about that kind of thing but Yeah but time I was like thirteen I was on Clarisa or maybe fourteen but not a lot of people had cable so my my kind of well growing up I was known as the rice krispies girl I was known as the Arnold Bright Girl like all these commercials I would do. Or if someone's parents let them watch me on the equalizer or they happened to see me on Saturday night. Live or I let a bunch of girlfriends come see me play ones but most of the time when I was doing a lot of theatre in my early middle school days nobody knew I was doing big FYODOR. Nobody they just knew I was going out at night. They had no idea at I was I was doing. You know a big play with big names and all this other stuff so And then Clarisa happened and while I was on a TV show filming in Orlando. I wasn't in Hollywood. I wasn't going to Red Carpet. Wasn't part of the whole scene circuit and then the show is on cable wasn't like a lot of people had it until later so really that's show became popular very slowly. Nickelodeon knew that there was good numbers behind it but as far as being recognized on the street it happened and I was living in New York City where nobody looks at your face anyway. Often keeps going. You know once in a while I would get stopped on the street in my teen years and I'd be kind of like flabbergasted by it and annoyed by it was weird. I don't know them but they're pretending they know me you know and and then Sabrina happened. We moved to La. I was twenty you know and I was a little more prepared and ready for it and so you know I feel like in a sense. I had a pretty normal childhood. Really until ninth grade and then ninth grade but you know teen years or was weird anyway kind of happy to get out of the high school setting away from peer pressure. I had a few friends but didn't really have group and felt like feel like I belonged which I think a lot of middle schools do so when I was around adults and working I felt very safe. I felt very accepted as long as I was. Nice to everyone It didn't matter what I wore. What music I liked who I dated. None of the adults care about that. Yeah so I learned very quickly that like L. Like how middle schoolers. They're mean to me because I were the wrong shoes with my outfit or desma. Mahir read for a play or something you know. And I'm like you know these adults are just like just be dumping ass right like as long as I was nice and I think that's sort of why I learned very early to like on a sat like you. You WanNa be professionally one. Do Your job you Wanna hit your mark in. It doesn't matter if you're the star or not like everyone has to behave themselves in a certain way. You don't get to be a diva because your names the one on the idol in your face. The one they're using to promote it like doesn't am.

It was devastating not only had John Andrei been arrested on one of the very last legs of his journey to New York but the secret documents had been discovered. Those papers were on route to Washington once Washington received them him. Arnold's treason would be revealed. Arnold told Peggy what had happened. She crumbled into his arms weeping but she was crying not so much for her husband has for her beloved monarchy as for Arnold. He had to accept up several things in very short order. If he was to escape with his life I there would be no surrender at West Point. He would never verbier the hero of Britain who ended the American Revolutionary War second he needed to escape immediately if he wanted to avoid the gallows which would require piggies help and equally tragically for the greedy man there would be no twenty thousand pound. Reward Arnold Begged Peggy to act as if all was well until general Washington came to Robinson House with the news of Arnold's betrayal when that happened she should delay Washington as much as possible by fainting total shock and horror at her husband's behavior. Peggy agreed agreed without a moment to spare arnold leaped onto his horse in spurred at into a gallop ignoring his pain legs. He wrote down to his personal dock where he threw himself onto his private barge in ordered his boatmen to paddle South Arnold told them to row until they reached the H. M.

Andre would still be a free man the invasion would still be on and Benedict Arnold would be about to get his blood money but that wasn't the case after what seemed like forever. Benedict Arnold's barge pulled up alongside ride the HMS Vulture after boarding he demanded that Robinson pull up the anchor and immediately sale for New York City as they sailed towards Manhattan Arnold had time to ponder the consequences of his failure. His handler was under arrest and likely to be executed. His family was in mortal. Danger is only hope remaining alive himself was because the British she had already accepted his defection. It was a matter of strict British policy never to turn over a deserter to his former army the deck of the HMS Filter Benedict Arnold began to formulate a public relations strategy. If he couldn't save his plan or his riches at least perhaps he could save his family and his reputation he could tell the world that he wasn't a simple turn coat that he had only wanted to end the war he wrote a letter to George Washington insisting that Peggy was innocent cintas any wrongdoing and should be conducted safely back to her family and Philadelphia. This was perhaps the only selfless act of Arnold's owns life after absolving peggy to Washington. He feared that he would never see her or their seven month old son Edward again they would grow up in the house. Peggy's father who hated Benedict Arnold at least they would be alive and safe as Arnold wrote those words Peggy was covering his escape with a prize winning fit of apparent psychosis at one point according to valiant ambition. She pretended to hallucinate that there was a hot iron on our head and only George Washington could remove it when Washington tried to do you just that she accused him of being an impostor bent on murdering Edward although it's impossible to know if peggy actually was hallucinating. It's most likely she was an exceptional actress doing just what she promised her husband distracting the general for as long as possible after the vulture arrived in New York City Benedict received an officer's commission in the British Army though the plan to turn turnover west point was ultimately unsuccessful. General Henry Clinton was convinced enough of Arnold's efforts to reward him with six thousand British pounds but he wouldn't be retiring rich as he had planned Clinton Expected Arnold a fight with all his might for the British army and truly earn his officer's commission meanwhile John Andrei spent the following weeks in prison and become a celebrity his own guards found him charming and his valet became so attached to him that he wept upon learning that Andrei would soon be hanged on October second seventeen eighty eighty Andrei was executed. He faced his death bravely. According to observers five days later on October seventh seventeen nineteen eighty benedict arnold published an open letter in the British loyalist paper the Royal Gazette titled Letter to the inhabitants of America the attempts to recast his treason as a patriotic selfless act on old wrote in part I affect no disguise and therefore frankly declare that I had determined to retain my arms and command for an opportunity to surrender them to Great Britain.

Smith had the opportunity Eddie to help one of his personal heroes he was quick to agree and even promised to send his family on a short vacation so that Arnold could we'd have some privacy one can only imagine what Mrs Smith said when her husband proposed that she traveled twenty five miles north to fishkill for a few you days so that a relative stranger could borrow her house nevertheless she ultimately did travel north and the house was vacated. Arnold now had a secure site for his rendezvous with Andrei. It's unclear exactly how the British learned where Arnold could be found but he must have succeeded in sending some kind of coded message on September sixteenth the HMS S. Volker Anchor just a few miles south of the Smith residence on September Seventeenth Arnold was at West Point in the company of several all continental officers when received an urgent letter from British Colonel Beverley Robinson Robinson told Arnold where the vulture was docked and requested a private meeting under a flag of truce this was it the meeting with Andre was on he'd have an opportunity to pass secret plans for West Point's defenses to his handler they would discuss the invasion and most importantly to arnold they talk about their one remaining point of disagreement regarding money on despite agreeing to the twenty thousand pound payments. Should the plan succeed Zied Clinton hadn't budged on the six thousand pounds if the plan failed and Arnold still wanted ten thousand pounds regardless according to valiant ambition to keep up appearances in front of the other officers Arnold promised to confer with George Washington to be four meeting Colonel Robinson. The commander in chief was nearby on his way to Hartford Connecticut. Washington's proximity was is no accident. Benedict Arnold hope to give General Clinton the opportunity to attack while Washington was near West Point giving the British British a shot at capturing the commander in chief. If they got Washington it would surely end the war making Benedict Arnold Donald a British hero as one might expect journal. Washington reacted to the news of Robinson's visit with concern he suggested that Arnold delay the meeting and send a message to the authorities in New York state to find out if there might be anything on tord about the visit then Washington boarded his boat to cross the Hudson as soon as Washington's back was turned arnold road off to Robinson House to collect his secret documents and prepare to rendezvous with the HMS Vulture.

Arnold thanked thanked his aid for the feedback Vereker rewrote the letter with more formal wording and sent it off but he couldn't outwit his boss entirely before before the post was handed off to a messenger Arnold hit another letter in the bundle in the second hidden letter he revealed a potent and sacred George Washington would return to West Point on Saturday September Twenty Third Arnold New General Clinton Britain would love to capture West Point and Washington in one day but he didn't know if the British were willing to invade when the beloved commander. You're in chief in residence. Clinton's still wanted to capture three thousand American soldiers not kill them given Washington's popularity clarity his presence might ensure his troops would fight to the death either way.

"Now back to the story on August twenty four th seventeen eighty thirty nine year turncoat Benedict Arnold received the long awaited letter from his British Handler Adjutant General John Andrei it had been nearly a month on the since their last correspondents in Arnold was beginning to worry that the plan was off despite the fact that he'd already gained command of West Point and begun to sabotage the fort. If the plan fell through Arnold was sure he'd eventually be found out and killed unless the British won the war some other way I after decoding the missive he learned that British General Henry Clinton had reacted with enthusiasm Husiac to Arnold's proposal and even agreed to a twenty thousand pound bounty for the surrender of West Point. He requested only Arnold Guarantee. The capture of three thousand soldiers during the invasion arnold was happy to stop dispersing the fort soldiers to other posts. It was less work for him and less suspicious to keep them at the base. Now with all parties agreed on terms. It was time to talk specifics planning the British invasion was far too sensitive to be done in letters arnold would have to see the John Andrei in person and not that Arnold especially wanted to see his counterpart. Andrei was young handsome air dight charming. Everyone met Arnold was an acquired taste. Even for his closest friends Benedict Arnold was still still bitter about being passed over for promotion to Major General at age thirty five John Andrei had risen to the rank of adjutant general at age thirty not not to mention the danger meeting at an American fort would put them both in if anyone recognized Andrei as a high ranking British British officer and saw him speaking to Arnold they might both be arrested on the spot nevertheless arnold bit the bullet and on August thirtieth seventeen eighty ask Connecticut Assemblyman William Herron to deliver a coded letter to the British on the pretense announced that it was a business matter he needed to communicate to a British merchant herron was suspicious and instead of delivering a letter he brought it back to Connecticut where he handed it over to one general Parsons Parsons who is now in Arnold old old role as head of the Connecticut militia simply ignored it although he recognized that it was written in code he assumed that Arnold was was in a secret business deal parsons new Benedict Arnold as a war hero and considered the idea that he might be disloyal ridiculous. LS Parsons wrote here off as Paranoid Benedict Arnold never even knew about this narrow escape four days later on September Third Arnold got another opportunity to send a letter to the British Mrs McCarthy. The wife of a prisoner of war was traveling south and agreed to take a letter into the city this second message found and it's recipient. John Andre opened the letter to find a carefully crafted insult from Benedict Arnold camouflaged as a strategic plan. Dan Arnold suggested that Andre traveled to west point in disguise as a spy named John Anderson Arnold it had even gone so far as to notify soldiers at nearby outposts that they should expect an informant named John Anderson and that he he was to be conveyed to the commander but John Andrei wasn't a man who could be easily disguised. He was known and despised despised for his cruelty on the battlefield. According to valiant ambition Andrei once ordered his soldiers to run down a fleeing defenseless defenseless group of American soldiers with their bayonets. Few survivors would remember John Andreas face forever. Andres ferocity in battle made him a favorite of General Clinton a brutal man himself. Clinton refused even consider Arnold Arnold's risky suggestion that John Andrei travel in disguise instead Clinton proposed that on dray where his own uniform and carry a white flag according to military convention an enemy soldier waving a flag of truce must not be fired upon on that's been the case since at least the second punic war which ended in two zero one. BC few military traditions are as is universal and far reaching even today. The use of a white flag is protected by the Geneva Convention traveling under a White Flag John Andrei would be safe that meant coming up with a cover story that would allow Arnold aboard a British ship displaying being a white flag without arousing suspicion enter Beverley Robinson Build Arnold's west point home and already one the few British officers trusted by Henry Clinton with a secret plan to take West Point Robinson could ask for a meeting with American General Arnold regarding the status of his property on the Hudson. John dray would accompany him. It may seem a little bit strange for an enemy combatant to request an update on his property while it's occupied by an opposing general but among those who'd grown up in the colonies both British loyalists and continental soldiers hope that the war would soon end and when it did presumably gentlemen like Robinson would have their the property restored to them. Clinton and Andrei can post a carefully worded letter Arnold politely declining his suggestion that Andrei disguise himself as John Anderson instead at noon on Monday September eleventh the they instructed him to meet Robinson at Dobbs Ferry on the east bank of the Hudson. This landing was in the neutral ground and would be a safe safe place for all parties to speak Arnold was reluctant to accept this change this meant he would have to cross the river which which was a dangerous task in itself from Man. Without healthy legs ended men's sparking suspicion in one of his boatmen if he wanted his twenty thousand pound reward. What choice did he have so on September eleventh seventeen eighty thirty nine your old benedict arnold boarded his barge and set off for Dobbs ferry this required sneaking out of the house without alerting varick but arnold managed to depart while his aide was occupied. He was eager to discuss the surrender especially because it would give him another another chance to confirm how much money he was to receive and win but almost as soon as he left the dock. Arnold old was forced to turn back British gunboats were patrolling the Hudson River as was often the case generally they just exchanged fire with American vessels off the shore of the neutral ground but upon seeing the American general alone on his personal barge they turn their guns on him nearly blowing arnold out of the water arnold swiftly returned to the American controlled West shore with his heart heart pounding in his chest. It was the closest he'd come to death on the water. Since the battle of Valco island in October of seventeen seventy six there was no way he could make his rendezvous with Andrei now and no way to send the British a message Benedict Arnold Arnold spent the rest of the day with his boat pacing up and down the West Shore. He hoped that the British officers would realize he couldn't cross and sail over over to the American controlled side of the river to meet him when darkness fell without any apparent attempt at crossing by Andrei Arnold grew the angry and scornful. He vowed that he would never again be the one to put himself in mortal danger just for a meeting he was already taking the greater risk by betraying his country but unbeknownst Arnold General Clinton had recognized the different strategy would have to be employed for a meeting on September Fourteenth Clinton revealed the West Point Plan to British Admiral George Rodney Name and enlisted the help of his fleet. It was it calculated risk. Double agents were everywhere but the time for swift action was at hand and Clinton believed he could trust Rodney Clinton sent Andrei and Robinson out to meet Arnold together again but this time aboard the H M s vulture one of Rodney's sixteen gun sloops as it happened September September fourteenth seventeen eighty was also the date of Benedict Arnold reunion with his wife and infant son Edward Hagey had traveled live from Philadelphia and was eager to see your husband after so many weeks of separation rather than wait to meet at Robinson House. The couple met at the home. Tom Joshua Heads Smith the naive attorney to whom Benedict Arnold was introduced by Robert. How the thirty one year olds home overlooked hammer straw straw bay located on the Hudson River about sixteen miles south of west point despite the peculiar features of their relationship their their age difference Peggy's political agenda and their looming debt peggy and Benedict Arnold were an affectionate couple especially with their first child child now smiling and babbling on Peggy's lap.

"Against the Court Martial proceedings after Paul. If he were to remain valuable spy he would have to retain the trust of his fellow continental soldiers more than that he would have to to regain a responsible position in the army. Although Benedict Arnold was still unable to walk he was forced to travel to Middlebrook Brooke New Jersey for his trial there he discovered a moment of irony Henry Clinton John Andrei Superior Officer and the very man Arnold was secretly trying to help head launched an offensive that call George Washington away from his duties in the military justice system. The Court Martial was postponed indefinitely Clinton had inadvertently prevented Arnold from being able to spy for Clinton Arnold returned home in June of seventeen seventy nine with nothing to show for his trip upon opening joining his mail. He discovered a coded letter that did little to improve his mood. John Andre had suddenly refused to make any strong wrong promises regarding payment not only that his letter tactfully made reference to Benedict Arnold diminished level of value to the British war effort due to his poor reputation. It's unclear if the British had vetted arnold before agreeing to work with him an only just now discovered arnold woes regardless while the British were still willing to make use of Arnold. They certainly weren't going to to pay in advance. Andrei wrote than Arnold would need to secure a conspicuous command and orchestrate the surrender of of several thousand soldiers at that point he would receive two guineas for each man who surrendered or about three hundred and thirty six dollars in today's currency of course Andrei must have been well aware that this was an impossible task for the badly injured arnold he he wasn't fit to serve much less to command a force of thousands Arnold took the letter exactly as it was intended as a stinging rebuke. Luke meant to make him feel old useless and unwanted Andrea must have been deeply offended by Arnold's arrogant reply demanding manning more firm assurances of financial compensation although John Andrei had a great deal of respect for Peggy. He wasn't taking very well tour blustering husband. Perhaps it bothered him. That Arnold was so clearly a greedy mercenary rather than a heartfelt defender vendor of the monarchy like himself arnold in the heat of anger scribbled out another letter to John. Andrei using Joseph Stands Berry again is a currier Arnold response was delivered to the head of British intelligence immediately but but when John Andrei decoded the letter he found that it was merely a shopping list for various types of cloth and ribbon piggy shopping list presumably presumably the message was clear. I may have things to say but I have nothing to tell you even though he was still massively in debt thanks to the loan he had taken out to win. Over Peggy's father Arnold refused to take Andre slight lying coming down had he been younger and more able bodied man he might have challenged the British spy to dual instead. He traded an insult assault for an insult predictably. This message caused a breakdown in communication between Andre Arnold which which in turn caused considerable worry for Peggy. She badly wanted her husband to follow through on his promise to spy for the British. Her anxiety only became worse when midway through the year. Hegi learned that she was pregnant. It didn't exactly come comes a shock. A couple had a very active sex life which arnold used to brag about in letters to his male friends but the timing was is less than ideal with Arnold still facing a court martial and potentially jeopardizing his status as a new spy by insulting John Day. Hey the expanding family was in danger of total insolvency hagey again. N. begged her husband to give Andrey some information that would help general Clinton but as seventeen seventy nine dragged on the prideful Arnold refused to reopen the lines of communication in December of seventeen seventy nine benedict Arnold's Donald Court Martial finally began this preceding was all about his attempts to profit from his position as commander of Philadelphia though Oh he was guilty of several of the charges. None of them were terribly serious. He was in no danger of lengthy incarceration or execution representing himself. Benedict Arnold mounted a spirited defence that focused almost entirely on how much he'd sacrificed for the country entry. He eloquently told the panel about the blood he had shed. He wobbled on his badly injured legs inspiring pity he ranted and raved about the dangers endured. It was a feeble attempt to gain unadulterated sympathy in in January of seventeen eighty thirty nine year old benedict arnold was cleared of all but two charges the improper issuing a pass to a a friendship and the use of government wagons for personal purposes. His sentence would be a public reprimand. Although this was a very positive outcome arnold was furious. He unsuccessfully demanded that the public reprimand be dropped. It was a particularly securely stinging punishment because the reprimand was to come from George Washington himself steaming and Ashamed Benedict Benedict Arnold went home to his pregnant wife in puttered around the house. He spent much of his time numbing his injured leg with opium and alcohol. Hegi soon distracted him from his misery by giving birth to a baby boy in March of seventeen eighty at at age thirty nine. Benedict Arnold was a father for the fourth time he had no means of supporting this child having served since seventeen seventy ninety. Five is an unpaid officer in the continental army. He and Peggy were forced to move into a small home owned by Peggy's father so that they could rent doubt Arnold's larger home and use the rental income to support themselves in April of seventeen eighty. The promised reprimand demand was finally published. Washington called Arnold conduct peculiarly reprehensible as well as imprudent and improper proper but as Washington publicly chastise arnold he was also to arnold surprise writing a private letter to arnold contradicting the very reprimand in it. Washington exhorted Arnold to exhibit a new those noble qualities which have placed you on the list of our most valued commanders. I will myself furnish you so far. Is it be in my power with the opportunities for regaining leaning the esteem of your country. It was an unexpected boon coming. Just when Arnold was at his lowest. The commander commander-in-chief was personally willing to provide him with new opportunities arnold mentally skipped over the part about exhibiting more positive positive character traits in his own mind. Washington had promised him a huge favor and arnold knew exactly what he wanted over the long months of waiting I for his trial and then for the reprimand he'd had plenty of time to think about and how he was going to be useful to the British without the use of his legs he certainly couldn't lead a large company of soldiers in the battle as has Andrei had suggested in their last terse correspondence but he could command of Fort and he knew just the right the one located in New York state West Point was the crown jewel of Washington's defensive strategy adage heavily fortified in strategically located along the Hudson River West Point was crucial to prevent the British from splitting the New England colonies from the Middle Colonies Arnold handing the Ford over would be a true prize John Andrei in General Henry Clinton Arnold knew it would take some work to convince Washington. He was suited for the command at West Point. It required Washington to replace the current Commander Commander Robert. How after planting the seed in Washington Arnold reopened his correspondence with John Andrei writing as if the command was already his as he waited for both responses. Arnold redoubled his efforts to get his legs to work again his old musket. Injury didn't bother him quite so much anymore these days with a little practice he managed to even get back on a horse. This however had an unfortunate side effect arnold briefly convinced Washington that he was ready for field duty over his own objections. Arnold was ordered to command the left wing of a defending force in New York on August. I seventeen eighty eighty he'd be fighting alongside Washington and his men just like old times but he'd be far from West Point and the attack Washington was expecting would come from Henry Clinton. The Very General Arnold was trying to help lucky for arnold the offensive offensive was called off at the last minute as if in sympathy to Arnold for depriving him of another chance at battle George Washington added a postscript to his general orders on August third reading simply arnold will take command of the garrison at West Point even though he'd been begging for this appointment for months reading the words came as a total shock finally benedict arnold had the resolution to all his financial problems in his hands if he could just turn west point over the British he'd never want for money again and all he had to do in exchange was betray. His countrymen countryman his comrades in arms and his nation..

"Coming up Benedict Arnold because his work as a spy now back to the story sorry on May fifth seventeen seventy nine thirty eight year old. Benedict Arnold begged his old friend George Washington to to help him bring to an end the investigation of his abuses of power while serving as Governor General of Philadelphia but by the time he wrote to Washington Shington Deep Down Arnold had already passed his breaking point he was in terrible physical pain and crushing debt his his eighteen year old wife Peggy urged him to give up on American independence and support the British army. She told him it was the only way to bring the revolutionary war to an end just a few days after writing his pleading letter to Washington Arnold took his wife's advice in send for an emissary who could convey a message to British captain John. Dre The man Arnold chose for this secret task was thirty seven year old seller of fine China and author of monarchist poetry named Joseph Stains Berry stands burien Arnold. I met at Arnold House though a secluded place might have been preferred Arnold's inability to walk presented an insurmountable obstacle in terms of travel pleasing Peggy Greatly Arnold Brag too stands berry about how many of the revolution secrets he knew he told stands berry he would gladly share those secrets but at a cost he you need to know if the British were serious about holding onto the colonies and if so how much would this information be worth to them mm-hmm Peggy was a true believer in monarchy but arnold was just tired of sacrificing his body and his pride for no reward. He was an opportunist not an ideologue. He wanted to know exactly what he beginning out of turning turning his coat he sent Joseph Stands Berea Way to look into the answers to his two questions sooner than he expected. Arnold received saved a reply. It was even better than Arnold had hoped John Andre wrote that the British would be more than generous in compensating compensating arnold for any useful information he could provide. Andrei went on to say that if Arnold could help the British Army May defeat a large body of continental soldiers Britain's generosity in that case would exceed even his most sanguine hopes hopes and if the newly minted spy should be discovered and have to flee the British would provide him safe escape to Britain written there he would be received with a hero's welcome for the first time in many years. Arnold felt felt. He was being shown the deference he deserved though the compliments were coming from an enemy state. They were like a bomb to arnold aggrieved grieved soul. It was the kind of answer he had so often hoped for from George Washington and yet had never received and of course there were the promises of money as much as benedict arnold wanted to please peggy and to receive some long-overdue overdue respect his greatest motivation to betray his comrades was financial gain after shutting down his mercantile business miss and spending his entire fortune to support himself while serving in the army benedict was ready to become financially stable once more but before arnold could get paid for his spying. He had to learn a whole new set of skills he he couldn't risk treasonous messages falling into the wrong hands. Luckily John Andre was something of an expert in codes in fact he just been promoted head of British intelligence for the American colonies in his very first letter to Benedict Arnold John established to secret message could use to communicate a book cipher and the use of invisible ink. Andrei instructed Arnold Arnold to choose any commonly available lengthy book for the book cipher then to write a message in Book Code Arnold would simply locate the words words he wanted to use in the book instead of writing words he would inscribe a new Miracle Code identifying the location of the desired word and for instance. If the word soldiers appeared on page thirty seven line nineteen word five of the reference Book Arnold would right thirty-seven nineteen five to reference that word according to Jennifer Wilcox Administrator at at the National Security Administration's national cryptologic museum book codes were very common around the time of the American Revolution Wilcox Fox goes on to state that such codes can provide excellent security if the sender and the receiver each have access to the same edition of the Book Book and the book contains many of the necessary words the only drawback these messages take a very long time time to decipher and if desired word is missing from the book and even more Cumbersome Code must be used to spell it out letter by letter Wilcox writes that Arnold and Andre initially used a method by which arnold would cross out the final number in a new miracle code they crossed out number would indicate that the reader should seek out the letter rather than the word corresponding with that number for instance if Arnold wanted to write Saratoga but that word wasn't found in his book he might use the cross outnumber code to refer for the reader to the s in Muscat the A in alcohol and so on and so forth however this proved incredibly cumbersome cumbersome the pair quickly switched to using a dictionary as their decoding book to ensure that they would have every word they could possibly need wilcox notes that dictionaries were easier to use book ciphers because they contained many words listed alphabetically however the use of the dictionary also made book ciphers easier to break even today book ciphers are fairly secure way to transmit secret information just as long as the message isn't intercepted by someone who knows what book you're using although it's more often seen in movies he's not in real life these days this old revolutionary spies trick stands the test of time but John Andrei wasn't wasn't ready to trust just one method of of the station with Benedict's top secret information instead. He suggested protecting their code in three three ways hagey would write letters ostensibly to a relative about an elderly friends health between the lines of Peggy's is letters Arnold would write his book coded messages in invisible ink then on the upper right hand side of the paper Arnold Arnold per andres orders wrote a key to the proper method of making the invisible ink appear either an F for fire or an a for acid shoot a message get intercepted even a fellow spy who could figure out the book code might be stymied by the invisible ink eh or a spy who could reveal invisible ink might be unable to decipher the book code the Americans also used invisible ink in their our own spying but it's unclear whether or not benedict arnold was aware of this according to historian Christie mccracken author of prisoners. There's lovers and spies some of the compounds used to make invisible ink over time have included Archer all the silver salt of a protein mixture sure iron chloride and lead acetate. We don't know exactly which inks Benedict Arnold used but any acidic fruit juice or vinegar vinegar can also be used as invisible ink when backed against the wall. Even human urine will do after these impoverished. I invisible inks have dried ironing the paper or putting it into a hot oven will reveal its message. Invisible ink continued to play Arolla in serious espionage even after the revolutionary war today most people think of invisible ink as the sort of thing you see in child's let's kit of magic tricks but for Benedict Arnold and later for soldiers in World War One it was the height of espionage technology eh but no matter which method of Code Benedict Arnold used he wanted even stronger assurances of compensation nations from John Andrei according to historian the th-annual Philbrick book valiant ambition Arnold wrote Andrei saying I will expect some certainty revenue equivalent to the risk in service don. He then added with his typical dramatic flair. I cannot cannot promise success. I will deserve it to prove his value. As a spy arnold also included several items of confidential information about continental troop movements and points of potential weakness in the American army for instance. He revealed that the outpost at Charleston South Carolina was too low on supplies to fend off any possible British attack. Thanks in part part to the Information Arnold provided the British army was able to besiege Charleston for six weeks. When the Americans surrendered on May twelfth seventeen eighty it proved to be a decisive victory for the British they now controlled the best harbor in the southern colonies and could began again increasing their military presence from Georgia to Virginia by night Arnold wrote out his secret messages suggest Andrei about American activities but by day he was still in the midst of defending himself.

"The only thing that lifted his spirits. I was eighteen year old Peggy shippen the stunning and brilliant daughter of Edward Shippen a former judge rumor to secretly support poured the British monarchy ever since the death of his first wife Benedict Arnold had preferred to court women far younger than himself and had had been rebuffed by several teen girls. Peggy on the other hand appeared to return his interest. Arnold was elated by September of seventeen seventy eight. He was writing her elaborate. Love letters again sometimes plagiarizing his own previous writings writings to other women despite her family's. Politics Arnold was sure that Peggy was the one for him by Peggy's father Edward Shippen didn't consider the destitute thirty-seven-year-old Governor General and appropriate match for his daughter. Arnold couldn't erase his career career as a continental officer but he could change his bank balance. Arnold began to do things he never would have done before four like uses command Philadelphia to purchase huge amounts of goods to resell before other traders could buy them up. His scheme was quickly discovered and an investigation was opened. The Brazen Arnold didn't let that get in his way arnold knew that if he didn't didn't make enough money to win Edwards blessing Peggy might be married off to someone else whether she liked it or not slowly arnold began to change his financial fortunes while continuing to court the teenaged peggy as they got to know each other she begin to whisper in his ear about the advantages of the monarchy arnold did his best to ignore Peggy's conspiratorial talk but it wasn't long before the consequences for his financial schemes would soon have him listening to what she had to say. By the beginning of seventeen seventy nine arnold's former colleagues were talking about court-martialing him for his abuse of power at Philadelphia Benedict thought this was absurd. He was a war hero sure he was guilty of most of the charges but it wasn't such a serious crime to warrant prosecution arnold felt disrespected betrayed and humiliated by the continental army for me. It was getting harder and harder to disagree with Peggy's praise of the monarchy she often reminded her now fiance that he'd been richer and happier before the war imagine how happy would be if the crown was back in power on. April eighth seventeen seventy nine benedict arnold and Peggy shippen were married laying out enough money to win over her father had required abuses of the power so great he was in danger of being thrown in a military prison he'd taken out an outrageously large loan in order to buy I mansion but in the end Arnold God what he wanted most Peggy playgie hagey didn't have what she wanted most she wanted to see monarchy returned what she's still considered the British colonies and and soon Arnold's health gave her some unexpected leverage weeks after the marriage thirty eight year old arnold came down with a a horrific case of gout in his right leg between that and the lingering musket injury on the left side he couldn't bear wait long enough off to walk at all with her husband disabled under ongoing investigation and now rarely leaving the house. Hagi had plenty any of time to press her case. She knew that if benedict agreed to spy for the British he could potentially turn the tide of the war as well as change his financial situation. She urged him to reach out to a British officer. She knew John Andrei not yet. Thirty Andre was a rising star in the British army as an adjutant general. He was a close confidant of the former British commander in chief General Henry Clinton Andrei spoke. Four languages had a gift for art and entertain friends by composing posing comedic verse on the spot. Peggy adored him. He had often been a guest in her father's home when she was a young girl before the war broke doubt. Hagi couldn't think of a more persuasive man to make her case for monarchy than Andrei. Even the cantankerous arnold wouldn't be immune to andres charms on May fifth seventeen seventy nine. Benedict Arnold was wracked with a fit of guilt. He knew that his wife's arguments were wearing him down his own skepticism about the American experiment was bubbling to the surface office. He fought back daily urges to do as his wife said contact John Andrei to mention he was still deeply in in debt. Perhaps espionage paid better than the army peggy hidden mentioned that a few times too but if Arnold took his wife's advice he'd be risking more than just money a former governor general caught betraying his country wouldn't just be investigated investigated. He'd be convicted and executed. Arnold did what he always done when he was truly really desperate he wrote to George Washington on May fifth seventeen seventy nine. He entreated the commander in chief to please bring his long impending court martial to a prompt resolution writing if your Excellency thinks me criminal for Heaven's sake let me be immediately he tried and if found guilty executed he went on to complain having made every sacrifice of fortune and blood and become cripple in the service of my country. I little expected to meet the ungrateful returns I received of my countrymen. He'd he'd waited too long to write confined to his home and suffering with constant pain. Arnold could think of nothing but the unfairness ernest of his own position. Peggy's promises kept ringing in his ears. He would be free if the British one he would be enrich again. If the British won the British would appreciate him unlike his supposed friends in the continental army deep down down. He knew that nothing Washington could say would make a difference Arnold no longer respected his old comrade in arms and no longer under believed in there once shared 'cause so before Washington could even reply Arnold took the step he could would never take back. He agreed to betray his country.

It wasn't long before Arnold was forced to admit defeat. He ordered all five live of his troops remaining vessels to run themselves ground on the shore. After the boats were grounded the men jumped out in mounted a ground defense from the cliffs above the beach in the battle that ensued Benedict Arnold gave an order that cost the life of his good friend Lieutenant Ephraim Goldsmith already severely wounded in the battle on the lake.

The loss was significant but the continental army ultimately succeeded in turning the British back before they could recapture for Ticonderoga despite his lauded courage Jim Wong his superior officers the battle ironically resulted in arnold making even more enemies though he was aware of the controversy surrounding his tactics Benedict Arnold expected he would soon be promoted to the rank of major general. It seemed like an obvious choice at the time he had the best record in the army and the most experienced he was second in command end of the highly successful northern branch of the army and he was a favorite of General George Washington so confident was he that in early seventeen nineteen seventy seven arnold commissioned a Taylor to produce a major general's uniform but not only did Benedict Arnold not received a promotion he soon learned that five lower ranking officers were promoted to major-general ahead of them already ready feeling frustrated with his status in the army arnold complained bitterly to George Washington himself in one letter. Arnold called all the non-promotion very civil way of requesting. My resignation Washington insisted that this wasn't the case and wrote back with many compliments for his old friend he even attempted to intercede with continental Congress in urge Arnold's promotion but was was overruled Arnold had friends in high places but he had enemies in even higher ones on September nineteenth breath of seventeen seventy seven Benjamin Lincoln replaced Benedict Arnold as second in command of the Northern Army. It was an enormous a slight to make matters worse. The order came from General Horatio Gates a longtime friend and mentor of Arnold's when the battle of Saratoga broke out on October. Seven seventeen seventy seven arnold was no longer an officer in the northern army in fact he was alone in a nearby farmhouse and extremely drunk. Some sources say he was also high on opium which he sometimes used as painkiller yet as soon as he heard the gunfire arnold settled his horse and rode owed into battle. Though he was no longer their commander many of the men still admired arnold for his courage at Ticonderoga Quebec and the battle of alcorn island he mustered up a company willing to follow him into the heat of the fray. The Battle of Saratoga was brutal and Dan bloody just after Sunset Arnold led a group of riflemen charge against a cluster of Hessen or German auxiliary troops groups as smoke swirled in the smell of gunpowder burned his nostrils Arnold galloped towards the enemy as if he thought himself self immortal suddenly a musket ball struck arnold again this time in his left thigh it passed through his femur and killed his horse. Arnold's bone was shattered sending splinters into the muscle and soft tissue of his thigh Arnold Arnold had to fight to convince the army's doctors not amputate they fully expected him to die of infection after refusing amputation but arnold clung to life the pain in his leg was severe everyone but arnold himself knew that this disability was likely catastrophic impermanent but he insisted that he would return to battle and soon in May of seventeen seventy eight benedict arnold was finally promoted but because of the late date of his promotion the five less experienced men promoted earlier would remain officially his seniors humiliated. Benedict Arnold fell into into a depression but one month later as the British formally withdrew from Philadelphia Washington saw this as an opportunity he to make things right with Arnold Washington ordered his old comrade the military command Philadelphia making him a Governor General Arnold should have been overjoyed but by this time he was simply ready for the war to be over.

"arnold" Discussed on Tony the Movie Guy
"So it's only fitting this episode is being a couple months in the making and eat, and I really appreciate it because you drove all the way down here to to LA to do the show with me today. We've got our whiskey with us. We've got us cigars. This is a spotlight episode on the one and only on old Schwarznegger Onny who I mean, look, I grew up on on, you know, Omni sly. So to Stallone, Bruce Willis kind of those what my boys growing up in the eighties and nineties. I love the guy and maybe he's faded a little bit in the loss years we're gonna get into. This is going to be a deep dive episode. People seem to really like these where we do a spotlight on director or an actress or an actor. So you chose Arnold Schwarzenegger. I'm all for it. That's what we're going to do with this episode. Let's make it happen. You know, Arnold really is the one. Guy that represents the American dream and its fullest, and he's not even American. About it because he was able to come here from a different country, not only make it in one industry, a second industry and a third industry, and then keep going. It's spectacular to see what he's able to do for himself, and then the Poor's amazing films he's allowed us to grow up on that such the point. I didn't even think about the. I mean, he is literally Mosterd competitive wrestling. He has Mosterd acting. I mean, he has and he's Mosterd politics. It's nuts. It's unbelievable. Well, competitive bodybuilding from the standpoint of competitive bodybuilding? Yes. And if you look at the golden era of bodybuilding, he was the one that put it on the map, so not only his personality this charm, but he had a physique that was second to none. You have these guys winning Mr. Olympia mister universe and number of times over. But he had four, five, six years in a row where nobody could touch him. And when you look at his history past just in bodybuilding, he was a legend and into move in from that into acting and then into politics. It blows my mind. Sometimes what he's been able to do. He's truly a self made man. Yeah, and it's awesome because I told you pumping iron, which is very famous documentary about that is like the only thing of his, I think I haven't seen we're going to talk about it. Don't worry cause. So off format is we're gonna go through his entire body of work from start to finish because that's what we do here at Tony, the movie guy, we go all in. It's a deep dive so ready to pump dope. I'm ready to pump you up. All right, that's do it. Okay, good. So what I want to go through and we're going to stop this goes way back to like the fricken sixties. So some of these early ones I'm not going to have to comment on as we get to the ones that were we know in love with can have a lot more to say. So, yeah, he he came from Austria over to America, right? Yeah, funny fact. I mean, his father was a gentleman that actually was part of the from what I understand the Nazi army. So he actually this? Yes. And it's while he never committed any atrocities, but you can tell. If you fall Arnie's. Life and his storyline almost he distanced himself from his father over time reportedly never attended his funeral when he passed away. So we can look at coming from that upbringing. His father was a police chief for Austria at the time and during World War Two when unbelievable things were happening right? And to see this man not only a transition from that upbringing and finding his love with weightlifting and his outlet with weightlifting, and then to move into America from there after he became famous in bodybuilding is quite a story. His also at so fine about Arnie. I speak about him like he's like my buddy because I grew up with him. He's the every man. The guy could sit down, have a beer with and talk anything right, talk trash, talk, whatever. And you can just have a good time with the guy over a beer, a nice gar and enjoy your time with them. Just like you would any of your bar buddies your beer buddy. Anybody at all. It's a, he's your every man and a true self made man in that way. It's nuts because he's being in my life as as far back as I remember..
