"So that's the second thing. And then that goes with even giving royalties or other percentages, things like that too. Like I've seen people sometimes give royalties and then people who are NFT holders, they get encountered to actually sell NFTs or have other people sell NFTs and then flow price goes down. So you're going to really think about how everything that you do and everything you offer, how that's actually impacting your project as a whole. So that was the second thing. Third thing is so as far as security. So almost, I would say the last 6 or 7 projects that I worked with, they all got hacked. And axie infinity, I didn't work with axiom Fenty, but they got high for about 600 million. I want to say last week or the week before. Now, there are a lot of hackers out there in the community in the NFT community, and so what people don't want to do is just have a very loose process for giving access on their Discord to every month. And if they don't have a company that's going to audit all the processes, especially the minting processes, and I'll give you one example. There was one project recently that got hacked for 600 K, they lost and what they did was they had all the money that was generated from the minting on a hot wallet, meaning on a meta mask. And it didn't need any multi signature to withdraw money from..

"Long-term investors online, can you sell out my NFTs. At that point, I was like, you know, we can obviously give it a go. So we use Twitter ads and we saw that here very, very small. And if the collection in a week. And to me, that was the beginning of understanding, okay, there's obviously a proof of concept where you can run paid ads and just give people interested in a specific NFT project. But I think the major components of advertising when it comes to NFT is just, okay, so understanding who you targeting. So let's say if, for example, one brand is Wall Street farm, they're really focused on people who like busy, busy moms, and busy dads who want to get into the web to read of things. So for them is that a lot of the people who are getting interested in the project is all about people who don't know a ton about NFTs. So they're more like newbies, versus let's say a project that's just very heavily involved with daos and let's say staking, so on and so forth, maybe there are more qualified or more NFT savvy people that are joining that project. So knowing who you're targeting is obviously very important and then just figuring out where they are at and with NFT communities at this point and Twitter is where the most of them are at. So if you're doing Twitter spaces, if you're doing influencer marketing, where you want to take where you actually want to find people is also going to be on Twitter. And then once you have something to show them and you have your messaging correctly, you know who you targeting, then you target them, and then you show them something that's of value to them, you ask them to make a small commitment that could be just joining your wireless without buying anything, and then you give them value in your Discord, you.

"So we no longer want to focus on just taking people to Discord. But the so what we do instead is we have a we create a landing page. We have requirements on it. We say, hey, you've got to follow us on Twitter. You got to join our Discord. And you're going to connect your wallet. So essentially, we know that you're serious to actually buy the NFT added later date. Then once they've done that, then we ask them to just tweet and say, hey, they've done that. They joined essentially our interest list. And then once they've done that, even past that, we give them even more qualification to say, hey, do a bunch of other things, maybe invite friends. So on and so forth, or engage in our disco community, then you become part of our whitelist community. Now, so the focus used to be building Twitter and Discord to eventually get people to become your white listers. Now, we'll just go straight to that. We're just building a whitelist wireless community and large, large wireless community as well. But anyone who is in your Discord and following your Twitter is practically all those people who are very serious about your project. Now, that creates a lot of fomo or creates a lot of hype, but it was also like it gives certainty to the founders of NFT projects that they know they can go into a mint state, knowing that they are actually going to sell out. And so as far as now how we bring the traffic. So I, this is also somewhat controversial. I like to do paid advertising because that's where my background is. I was running ads for public companies as for investor relationship marketing. I was running managing 500 K plus every month. So that's where my background is. That's where I have a lot of knowledge and experience in I brought it to the NFT community as well. I understand there's some people who they think that running paid ads may be involved. It's like a red flag for the NFT community. And I do want to I do want to mention that paid ads came way before NFTs even were they came to the world. The first advertising was literally like in ancient Egypt in 3000 BC, someone was looking for they wrote it on the carved this ad where it was like looking for someone was looking for their slave actually. Obviously years ago. And then in the ad, they said, if you find this person in the described the person as well, said if you define this person, I give you half a coin, half a gold coin. If you actually bring it to my shop, which is the best shop in town for best woven clothes. Then I will give you an entire gold coin. And so he literally just advertised his what we would call shield his actually clothing brand inside that ad that he was looking for for someone. And so ads actually, they have a huge history. They've been doing it any song that you think about any brands that you just wear. If you go outside, you wear a specific brand..

"About how that fits into your strategy I think about if memory serves about 16 deals completed on your watch so far do you anticipate continuing to acquire at roughly that pace and that target size or is there scope for something more transformative Yeah so I'll answer both questions Tom One so redhead was $34 billion We borrowed money in order to do that because we didn't there in cash We'd be down to our current leverage ratios by the end of this year So we've kind of paid down the bulk of what we borrowed for Red Hat Now if I look at the returns there I think 17% annual growth there in the business three and a half billion and change in revenue will be acquired the business well over 5 billion this year So I'd say that's why I think the investor will ensure call that a success Okay Now we did regenerate as you said Ten to 11 billion a year in free cash flow About 6 goes towards the dividend So that leaves us about 5 and change each year And we put about three to four of it to work in acquisitions each year So when I look at that that's the business as usual to extrapolate over three years We said $35 billion in free cash flow you count 18 towards the dividend that leaves you 17 so we could say that's the business as usual And I fully expect to maintain that rate in pace That was arvin Krishna CEO IBM with Bloomberg's Tom Giles at the Bloomberg technology summit And coming up can WarnerMedia get enough people.

Hearing about your civic escapades congrats. On master tier are inspiring. So who quit the game due to ranked anxiety many years ago. I've seen many listeners. Asking you how you overcame it and your advice is just play ranked. It's genuine good response. I've recently been playing games on my days off night. Not quite ready to play it after work. But i'll get there. I don't like the idea of having shitty day of work most days and then coming home. Losing three rankings in a row just to make that bad day even more miserable. I'm not sure if you've covered that before. Do you guys play after work or do you set time aside on days off not saying arvin linked to this email. This is the first one. I've said to you so it's a six months of pent up appreciation ex vengeance. Yes yeah. I think so like kind of from the top. All of us having different opinions. I think that's really good. And that has led us to a lot of good conversations where we've disagreed or start pitching like very different ideas on. How solve a problem that we can. All agree is the problem. I think that's happened a bunch of times. You know crit is a problem right now and so there's like this is one way we can do. This is another way and they're totally different and like being able to discuss. That's always super fun. I think it's really cool that we always come to the best possible conclusion to where we're discussing this sort of thing always it is. I don't think i ever brought up though but like there was a season where like all of us were playing support and i actually role swap because of that was just saying and like i don't think i ever like brought up but i did kind of start like fuck like we're just not really giving as much inside as we could Some thanks we're getting a little circle jerky but like i think. For the most part like over every season we played for the most part. We always played at least two two different roles between the three of us Except for nine from roles between one of us being cold. Yeah i was gonna say. I don't think there's ever been a season where one role has made up. More than fifty percent of my total yam is remembered season nine all three of us plagues and call you. And i are both just spanning al at one point and i was like. Oh this is like melkite support. Yeah i think we're only season or something like that but other than that..

In eighteen sixty six is a volt doro coal out of a half sister talk. Move to me where i remember. It was very impressive. Rising stars by violence respond medallion door so similar family there so we know the cross works there and for photos walking videos cadillac pages in x ray reports. You can go to. Why would furred dot com. So we got the the reporter. Mayors brad from the jockey club last week on. This is in the fall. Numbers projected grab subjective volk routes for twenty twenty two mirrors brad this year as eighteen thousand seven hundred which is another decline the client of five hundred Than the twenty twenty one full crabgrass. Two point six percents. This is the six straight year of decline in the lowest figure since nineteen sixty five on the whole crop was eighteen thousand eight hundred forty six high water mark which seems like jillian years ago in nineteen eighty. Six was fifty one thousand two hundred ninety six. Obviously were never ever going to approach those numbers again but this is obviously a concerning trend for the industry. I think the two the two trends to file. Oh if you want to know about the health of racing small crop and handle handle at least. I think has steadied a bit. You know it was going down for a long time and now it's at le- steadied at around ten billion dollars giver tate's You would obviously like to see that. Grow lisa's not declining. The way it was in the in the past twenty years with all crap continues to go down. This is something that is obviously going to trickle down to the rest of racing smaller field sizes which leads the smaller hand. All you're going to have fewer and fewer owners and end. I think that's hurt. Hurt the structure. Eventually you know. There's some quotes in the story from elliott walden about how the structure will will in the hundred thousand dollar made special ways that are all over. The place will get this trend to go in the other direction. I don't know about all that this seems kind of like a universal thing and it's just going go down and it's just a matter of how much But i wonder if bill hasn't thoughts. Yeah joe lhota thoughts on this. I mean eighteen thousand seven hundred. You're looking at the lowest woke up since nineteen sixty and i say the same thing this year that said any of the ten prior years on paper makes no sense. I mean we just talked about horses. Running for a hundred and thirty. Five thousand dollars maiden races and allowance races at kentucky downs. Her sis- have never been bigger. And if you take purses now versus twenty years ago i mean. They've gone up. they've just exploded. Thanks largely due to game which is where all the downs. Come from so simple economics here. Don't make any sense when the amount of money that is available to horses goes up. You should have more horses instead you get less and less all the time and you know it's interesting elliott walden said but you know maybe these higher purses will start to crack more owners which attract more demand for reading it. That would be the case. Why why hasn't that happened in prior years when purses keep going up right now. I don't have the answer to this. I don't know what's going on the only thing i can think of is. It's i'm sure it's not the top geyser getting squeezed out the top readers. It would seem to be in. It's like talk all about the middle market whether it's the yearling sales whatnot and a twenty five hundred dollars in maryland or something probably really is hard to make go or something like that so i think that's where it's coming from the one. The other thing too is the way racing has justice. I'm not sure it can't. We need less racing. Because if you don't duck less racing those six horsfield become five horsfield's and then all of a sudden the handle keeps going down in versus might go down if the handle goes down and that's one of the problems. This has to racing and one of the reasons why you know it's again the damned if you do damned if you felt of the slot machines reason why there's too much racine is there's twenty racetracks out there. That would be closed if they weren't excuses for having slot or now so let's let's hope though that it levels off at this number. This is sustainable. But get down to fourteen thousand in in seven eight years from now. Something like that is really really scary. Yeah it's That's that is the the elephant in the room is that there's too much racing or vulgar Yeah there's twenty race tracks to But to your point that you know these it was. It was a great story that soon wrote about a lot of great quotes in there. The only thing is i think most of the courts people like bill says who are at the top end of the game. Who aren't really gonna feel the swedes when it comes to declining full craps. They're they're they're mostly guys who you know. Their their salaries are all booked. And you know. They breed andrea mayor as a matter. What every single year. It's the smaller navies our state readers. That are gonna feel the effects of this with with really no business. There was an interesting quote in the story as well From chauncey morris about the lack of export and how other countries i think especially in the far east have become more reliant on their own reading programs res- opposed to american bright orces that they would have been exporting ten twenty years ago so i think that's that's an interesting point as well. This is no longer. I don't think the breeding capital of the world. I think every country that is as as a sustainable racing product has their own breeding product for a program that they can rely on But yeah you know it. Just it eventually gonna trickle down and we already have a problem with fields is this is. This is a blinking red alarm signal. The field sizes are barely over seven. Horses parades in some in some cases the monthly figures there below seven parade which is completely unsustainable and this is not loans to help that You know i just. I wonder if racing really ever addresses these problems in a systemic way. And you know not having that centralised body to do so is a real handicap. And i don't i don't. I'm not an expert on how to rejuvenate full crap like that's that's now my departments way above my pay grade but just i see some of the quotes. That are just kind of you know. Wow this is no big deal. You can't read too much into this. It's not necessarily about this. Year is false Five hundred horses. It's about the trend and the decline handle was going down by this much every year. You would obviously be very very concerned about it. But it's it's it's something that i guess. I know easy fix but it's definitely something to monitor and it's something that's going. It's kind of like a lagging indicator. You know kind of like the. It's we call it. We had cases than hospitalization than the lagging indicator. I think this is one of those things. Where couple years from now when these ordinaries folder on the track. You know you're going to have five feels five and a half six fields as an average and be like well. Why the hell is this happening. Well not enough holes too much racing too many racetracks and i think the the thing is a little bit illusory that now for now and we have the dealings subsidies and we have these teeth. Meet sicker really up or assist overall like that's not going to be the trend to full crop. It's used to go down tedium Brought to you by legacy blood. Stop using that. Fifty years combined experience in the worst business could benefit your program. Give time you're wendy a call. They personally advised on each horse as if they were their own.

Either john green for that matter in that seat. The heating and writers room is presented by keeneland yearling sale. If you haven't noticed keeneland. September is in full swing. Lots of action. We're gonna get to it. And i would as made plans to attend the chemo. September growing sale which goes through next friday september. Twenty four th and you can view the catelli at the world's yearling sale dot com. So we're thrilled to have gaby on this week. She is keen on expert. Both from the sales end the racing side. You on september kicked off. As i mentioned on monday. You've done for booked. One both sessions of book one. Lots of action. I believe thirty horses over seven hundred fifty thousand dollar enough. A bunch of a bunch of million dollar eurowings three the first state of six seven yesterday. The action has really picked up through the end of book. One book two starts tomorrow. I believe after today's day. One of the Tossed to gabby mostly for this. Because she's knows a lot more than me she's on. The ground is acting to me. One of the the overarching dame's of one of the things that i noticed early was justifying how popular justify as you would expect that with a triple crown winner But he's got. I mean seems like everyone that comes in the rain is a huge bidding war for him. And it's it's really exciting to now. Think about seeing forces on track next year is two year old and i'm really excited for him in particular. Because he's a son of stat. Daddy scat daddy was going to be aren't superstar sire. He was probably going to be a legendary generational sira. Unfortunately we've lost him too early so i'm really excited to see him. Carry the flag for stat. Daddy going forward. And i think that's one of the reasons that he so popular. Now the people want that sign of stat daddy early on nonni never is one of the ones. I think that he already has got really really popular. Music coolmore ireland. He started at twenty five thousand euros couple years ago. he's already up four hundred fifty thousand euros steffi. So i think that's a big part of it. Obviously that several crowd is is very attractive for people. But you know these are basically just very very novice layman's Observations gabby has the rail stupid and has been there would have been one of your precious. The first few days gabby obviously prep for the keeneland. September sales starts as soon as the book. Comes out for me back in the catalog and kind of going back to that. You know when. I was looking at the pedigree's you see a lot of justifies. So obviously we've seen a lot of people have confidence Inbreeding to him from the get go. That's why we see them. Show up in book one but also the physical i mean. These horses are absolutely gorgeous. So i think that's what's been really attractive to buyers so far but on top of that we've seen a lot of people come to the sale this year with cheese with the intention of buying those classic pedigrees And obviously we see that with justify him being triple crown winner a bmw woodstock they have a new colts partnership obviously the other partnerships that have been active in years past as well but really paying attention to this classic pedigrees and even the presence of people like yuki mori. You know who are take. He's taking Role his justifies back to japan even mentioned That he thought that they would run well on the turf in japan so i think justify is just hitting many different markets. He's he's I think he's gonna wind up being a pretty versatile stallion as many of these buyers think but overall just the first to the first two sessions of a book one yet. They've been strong in. It's been encouraging to see some new buyers a be the marketplace as well. Yeah i mean that was one of the things that i noticed myself a dark days. Friday move move on dirt older. We got to Starting today and then when you have got to work. But yeah i mean. That's it's the schedule. The format has completely changed this year. And so we had two days of book. One two days of to which begins wednesday thursday. The first dark day is gonna be on friday book. Three starts on saturday and the new sales team. Everybody akin keeneland has incorporated new things this year including the offering of our as which you know horses. That did not sell on monday. Came back and sold on tuesday evening of them dead. So yeah there've been a lot of changes just to add to all the layers of this year sale yet we're gonna talk to the shannon arvin the ceo of human a little bit about the sale and been the thoroughly trends in her early impressions while. But there's i think there's a lot of diversity in terms of our at the top of the list. The first couple of days end buying power. I think gabby makes a good point that i think there have been a lot. I think there are a lot of people that are there this year you can affirm that are there this year. That weren't as involved last year. And just because i think interrupted the sale season enough that people either sent representatives or senate out a little bit more than they normally. What's the and this year the lot. There's a lot of international you mentioned to the. Up mario's their winchell. Thoroughbreds got involved. The other day. I got a one point. Three three five million dollars up into mischief ron winchell. He's been he's been trying to get into mischief That that runs well for a while now and has been able to find ones that you really want to the math for that one was rails farm involved with tabby yesterday Loves topix at one point. Three million dollars on a tap it Just looking at the rest of the buyers may berry farm portland arm. Seahorse siebel spendthrift coolmore. So a lot of diversity at the top of the sale in. It's been really exciting. I think you can speak to this. But how has the feeling ben on the grounds in terms of energy as compared to last year in completely different for obvious reasons. There are a lot of people that were bidding online last year. That couldn't make it to the sale physically. And you know. I think a lot of the international buyers have tried their best to come here to keeneland. They really really really wanna be here. Obviously it's extremely difficult. But caitlin has worked with them and and vice versa to try to get some of these international buyers on the grounds But yeah i would say. The energy is completely different than last year. I think people just didn't really know what to do last year right. It was something that we were developing We're developing covert protocols and procedures and everything just kind of came together in september last year but this year it seems like we have a really good blueprint and were building off of that in just making things a little bit more accessible to buyers just all around but yeah even china horse club. They have a presence here her. I was talking to te'o a couple of days ago and he was really upset that he wasn't able to be at keeneland physically last year and was so excited like he kept on saying over and over again. I'm so excited to physically here this year and obviously they've had a big as sales so far not only from buying a buying standpoint but also a selling standpoint as well so it's just good to see some of those familiar faces back but also the international people coming in and the new buyers. You mentioned jim. Dana bernhardt their new. I mean they're. They're new to partic- near lanes at the september sale. And they already. They came in hot with million dollar horrors And they're really really nice spokesman louisiana's though it's been nice to.

And then that's when the woman said to me that the green card that i brought was fake and my first instinct. When she told me that was to think. I am not mexican because even back then. This was ninety seven whenever anybody said anything about fake papers anything about documentation. The radio the television shows the newspaper said he was all about mexican people. So that was my first instinct was to think i'm not mexican. Which is a horrible thing but again. That's where the power of media is so is so important right back then again. This is ninety seven back then. That was already part of the psyche. That whenever you thought about fake papers or quote unquote legal people lose by mexican people and also. You're a sixteen. I was sixteen. That's kind of started this whole thing and for my grandfather. I confronted him afterwards. Of course and my grandfather said yeah. It's fake you're not supposed to show that to people. And that's when basically the plan that he and my mother and my grandmother had concocted kind of expose itself to me. That's when i found out what their plan was. And so that was over twenty years ago long time ago and i bring that up because yes then there's been no change or resolution in your immigration status. That is such a long period of time to live with that stress and ambiguity. And that's what. I was getting out into the book when i was really interested in the main question i had was. Why might this messed up. Why do i have a hard time having relationships with people why why is it that it seems as if i have created borders walls lake with the way i treat my own friends like i've on thirty eight years old and never had a boyfriend like what is that about. I've never been in a committed relationship with anybody because what was the point. I was going to get deported. I was gonna leave i. I always had this feeling that everything was temporary. Nothing was permanent and so even that that was the way even had sex with people. you know. it's like okay we're done. I'll see you later. What are you still doing here. What am i still doing like get out. It's so interesting hearing you say all this because you also say that coming out as undocumented with such a bigger deal than coming out as gay. Because i think i had the privilege of living where i live you know like i was in mountain view which is what an hour south of san francisco in incredibly accepting family that but then i had a very accepting school. They kind of balance each other out so my catholic filipino families. Like what is this gay thing you're supposed to get married to a woman in. Bu citizen out to the argue that now that have come out the documented thing. I'm trying to understand the gay thing. Because i never really. I'm the hundred percent. I think i went to a gay pride parade. Maybe once in my life not twice. I went to the one in new york too. But i didn't wanna be there like i don't know what gay practice like. I'm still kind of confused by gay pride. Because maybe because i haven't dealt with my in many ways i came out but i came out in two thousand nine hundred ninety nine. It was a few months after the matthew. Shepard killing tragedy. I came out of necessity because if i had not come out as gay then. My grandfather's plan was for me to marry a woman who's a us citizen and try to get my papers that way so coming out that first time was like a way of saying. No one lie was enough. I'm not gonna lie about this. But because i've been in the closet about the undocumented thing i would argue that i'm probably still in the closet about the gaping because i'm still dealing with that like i don't know what that really is for me. There's nothing sense it does.
Model-Based Offline Reinforcement Learning with Aravind Rajeswaran
"All right. everyone. I am on the line with arvin. Roger swaran arvind is a phd student in machine learning and robotics at the university of washington. Arvin welcome to the tuomo podcasts. Thanks famine federal pleasure. I'm really looking forward to our conversation. Motto based offline reinforcement learning is the topic of research papers called morrell motto based off. Find me enforcement learning. That topic has come up quite a bit over the past year or so It's getting quite popular. And i'm really looking forward to digging into your take but before we do. Tell us about your journey and how you came to work in our l. and robotics chip pretty interesting question my undergraduate background. Actually in something completely different. I was mostly doing big statistic and lucrative like chemical engineering as my formal degrees and i took a machine learning class by professor of in back in india and that kind of transformed my perspective on things that essentially had matt very similar to what is used in statistical it so i was able to pick up on it pretty quickly by the obligations. Seemed like really really cool. So i wanted to maybe fever debate and focus more on machine learning. And so that's how i moved into the bronx field of ai and when it started out i had more of a theoretical inclination ben. I started working with my adviser. Professor shawn kakabadze. Who's like an expert in machine learning theory on be discussing like what might be interesting projects topics to work on or we felt was start matz. If the research decide in machine learning deep learning was largely explanative nature so deep learning was already working really well and the gresh any hard. We understand explain. Why deep learning working enforcement learning. What was interesting is that we actually didn't have very good algorithms things. Were actually not working that ball. And there was a very interesting scope to have like an interplay between teary analogous from both develop new algorithms to break very well and also tried to explain why it is working than gain a more fundamental understanding and that sort of been might be at the joining us electric to show board they. Competitively goodra sauce ended the same time having a theoretical bench to my work. Nice nice and as the large focus of your work been on model base are l. in particular or have you explored a wide variety of topics within the space. I see interesting in model based in fort learning relatively recently the i'm i think about my research at least in the last couple of years has been the central question of. How do we make a. How do we create agents that can solve a diverse set of tasks with a modest amount of expedience but each individual dos and this is of course a very broad question that the number of different fields including multi task learning micro. Learning offline learning. And so on that constitutes space of problems that have been thinking about what you think is really cool approach algorithm to make progress on these domains model based startled so i view model based on. That's providing the mic toolkit to make progress on questions related to multitask turning meta learning offline. Learning got got so maybe the best way to go through this is to start from the beginning And have you kind of explain the. I'm curious the way you explain. Model based rl. And if it's you know the extent to which it'll be different from other explanations we've heard here on the show so let's start there. Yes so. I guess maybe i could try to merge some of from model based on offline learning on. What got me working on this project. I'm hopefully doing that. There may be an explanation for what is model based donal on. If you think about firmament a moment blake questions and computer vision are be the questions. There tend to be much more ambitious and interesting than in traditional reinforcement. Learning for example. The questions to be still asking learning are how can we solve a particular tastic pickup. A particular object with the robot solve a particular game with. Ask me more samples as possible. This is very different. From how people phrase digressions and computer vision for example offs kennedy chanukah detector with ten samples can attain got victor with twenty points. That's just not an interesting question. The questions are the how can i identify. What is the object. An image of thousand categories much more broader in scope and much more ambitious daily. Use a lot of will get to make that happen. Mine goal was to try to emulate that in reinforcement joining us. Now if he start thinking about how can an agent which flows in a very complex A kitchen for example. There are so many things that it can do the cabinets they clean bans the setup dishes and so on the dishwasher on the speed of things that the robot can do so much more diverse than what that means is we need to be able to use the data to extract as much information about the world as possible and i believe models are the we accomplish doctor just given a particular state of the wall some either league and explicit stately things that particular joined configurations of the robot throughout the different objects in the armour richard descriptions such as images and video slater scans of assets points to any potential action that the robot can take how would the world evolving change on if you are able to learn such a model it modern sculptures many of the details that want about the world on on the basis of what we learn. We can then downstream from finding and reasoning in order to accomplish necas of interest. So in my mind to go back to your question what is a model. I believe it is. How would the world respond to any changes be made potentially making the former factions
Netflix’s The Devil All the Time
"Netflix, now available for streaming the devil All the time is an ensemble crime drama Little film Noir ish with a bit of the grizzly to it, And it kind of recalls the cone brothers in their blood. Simple Fargo dark, twisted mode, but this has none of their mordant humor and in two hours and You know, 18 minutes, it does meander a bit here and there. Still, I thought it was a good one. Presenting this web of circumstances happened stances consequences that Titan's over the course of three decades, the forties fifties and sixties between two rural towns and a couple of families. One of the towns in Ohio, one of the towns in West Virginia, there a couple hours apart.

And his dogged by tragedy that's almost biblical, and that that carries over to others whose lives were connected in the story, By the way, the role played by Holland. Yes, Spider Man himself. It's his closest you get to a heroic lead in the movie, and this British actor is pretty convincing as a young American from that part of the country. It's like he was bit by a radioactive hillbilly. I mean, really Totally thrilled with Tom Holland. Where can we watch this? The devil all the time? Yeah, it's good stuff.

Novelist Donald Ray Pollock On Factory Work And Finding Fiction Later In Life
"Today's first guest is author Donald Ray Pollock, whose novel the devil all the time has just been made into a new netflix movie premiering next Wednesday. It Stars Tom Holland and Robert Pattinson, and here's a taste in this clip. A young boy has just watched his father pulverized two guys after they made lewd comments about the father's wife, the son's mother. Afterward the father gives his son some advice. You remember what I told you. On. The buzzer gave you. That's what I mean. got. To. Sir. Good sons of bitches out there. One hundred. These that many. Cannonball. In, both the movie and the novel the characters in the devil all the time are driven to extremes whether their fathers and sons, serial killers or preachers. The story begins in the small town of knock him stiff a real place in southern Ohio where Donald Ray pollock grew up. He didn't become a writer until he put in over thirty years at the local paper mill and got sober. But. Once he did start writing. He was noticed quickly receiving both awards and critical. Acclaim. Terry, gross spoke to Donald Ray pollock in twenty eleven when the devil, all the time was first published. Donald, Ray pollock welcome to fresh air. I'd like to start with reading from your new book, the Devil, all the time It's about the second paragraph from the prologue. So would you just set it up for us? What we have here is A young boy's name is Arvin Eugene Russell and he's following behind his father Willard and there and place called knock him stiff and they're going to Willard's prayer logging as a log in the woods where he Wants to communicate with God and So this is where they are. You know early in the morning and their. have finally reached this log. Willard eased himself down on the high side of the law and motion for his son to kneel beside him in the dead soggy leaves unless he had whiskey running through his veins Willard came to the clearing every morning and evening talk to God. Arvin didn't know which was worse the drinking or the praying. As far back, as he could remember, it seemed that his father had faulted devil all the time. Arvin little with the damp pulled his Co. tighter. He wished he were still in bed even school with always miseries was better than this but it was a Saturday and there was no way to get around it. Through the mostly bare trees beyond the cross Arvin could see whisper smoke rising from a few chimneys, half a mile away four hundred or so people lived in, knock him stiff in nineteen, fifty seven nearly all of them connected by blood through one godforsaken clam or another be it lust were necessity or just plain ignorance along with the tar paper shacks and Cinder Block houses the Holler included two general stores and a Church of Christ in Christian Union and joint known throughout the township as the bullpen. Three days before he'd come home with another black I I, don't condone no fighting just for the hell of it but sometimes, you're just too easy going Willard told him that evening then boys might be bigger than you. But the next time one of them starts his stuff, I want you to finish it. Willard was standing on the porch changing out of his work clothes. He handed Arvin Brown pants stiff with dried blood and Greece. He worked in a slaughterhouse in Greenfield and that day sixteen hundred homes had been butchered a new record for RJ Carol meat-packing. Those boy didn't know yet what he wanted to do when he grew up he was pretty sure he didn't WanNa kill pigs for eleven. Let's Donald Ray pollock reading from his new novel, the Devil, all the time. You know in the reading that you did the father tells the sun that the next time. So many beats him up the sun has to fight back and that seems to be. A recurring theme like in the opening story of your collection of short stories, the collections called knock him stiff. The opening sentence reads my father showed me how to hurt a man one August night at the torch in when I was seven years old it was the only thing he was ever any good at. You certainly seem interested in the idea of a father. Kind of indoctrinating a sun on the need to fight back and then egging on to do it even when it's inappropriate. so was is this a story that played out in your life? Well, not so much in my life I. Mean as far as I don't my dad really didn't push me to fight or anything like that. But you know when I was growing up my father and I had a very Uneasy relationship. You've got to understand my dad was born in one, thousand, nine, hundred, thirty he's still alive. You know he's eighty years old and he's still kicking but He was born in. Nineteen thirty grew up in the depression I went to the eighth grade. He was working on the railroad by the time he was sixteen, and then he was in the navy. And, my dad is a very tough. Hard. man Stra very strong man. As and in contrast to that, my mother is very shy kind. Small Bone woman. and. Either fortunately or unfortunately for me, I took after my mother and I believe. When I was a kid, my dad was. Maybe disappointed for not taking after him more. So. You know that's where I guess part of that comes from it and part of it also comes from. Lived in stiff. That's where I grew up and I saw a lot of other fathers who were you know drinkers and hell raisers and they didn't treat their families very well You know maybe they went and worked for a while and. I got enough money to go on another band or whatever, and pretty much left the family to take care of themselves. So, yeah father's have a pretty rough time and my work I just. It's just. You know I'm a father. You know I have a daughter WHO's I'm thirty years old now and I have always felt that I. Wasn't. As good as I could have been. Her mother and I were divorced when she was very young she was like a year old and and I wasn't around that much and. That's probably the best explanation. I can give for why treat father's like I do my work. Were you bullied in school. You said you, you took after your mother who wouldn't hurt a fly. So and if you were bullied, would you fight back? Did you know how to actually I wasn't bullied in school I? Never really had any problems with that and yeah, I. Mean a would fight back if I had to but. That situation you know didn't come about very much probably you know just. No more than any other normal kid you know might face that sort of thing. But. Yeah. I mean I wasn't really interested in Working on cars or farm or anything like that was more of A. I won't call myself a bookworm because we really didn't have that many books but you know I like to read and watch old movies and drawl and stuff like that and My Dad. Just you know he's a very practical man I mean, even today you know his idea of success is. Owning your own farm, starting your own business or something like that and I know that he probably looks on what I'm doing now is. A pretty useless way to spend your life trying to write books. Would you describe what the town of knock him stiff was like when you were growing up well, when I was growing up there it was. You know relocated for us. Ok we'll knock him stiff. is about thirteen miles west of chillicothe Theo, which is you know southern Ohio. It was its own little place. You know there wasn't much else around there but it was a community There were three small general stores and a bar and a church, and probably four hundred, fifty, five, hundred people now I probably was related to. At least half those people. So did you find this nurturing being in a town where half the people in it were related to you or incredibly claustrophobic? I think when I was a kid when I was a kid I was claustrophobic for me. You know I was one of those kids I was always unsatisfied I always wanted to be. Else and somewhere else. And so from a very early age. You know I was thinking about escaping from the hauler. I just Thought that I'd rather be somewhere else are somewhere else. But where you are as in Chile coffee which is. PHILADELPHIA, which is about thirteen miles away like you got out but you didn't go very far. I, really didn't get out I mean that's the weird contradiction of that whole thing you know i. Wanted to escape and them what I finally got my chance or whatever I. I chose to stay I'm out at knock stiff at least once a week even today Ladder parents go to visit. My parents are still alive. You know I have a brother and two sisters and they all live fairly close to there and So I. Think though as far as escape goes what happened with me was I quit high school when I was seventeen. And I went to work in a meat packing plant much like Weller work, Dan? And then when I was eighteen I moved to Florida you know that was going to be I was going to get away that you know by moving to Florida and I was down are working a job in a nursery and I wasn't making much money or anything only been there a few months my dad called and said. Hey, I can get you a job at the paper mail if you come back up here so. I chose to come back. You know the paper Mills Calling it was union job and great benefits and. And I knew you know for a high school dropout that was probably going to be the best job I. Ever got. You had that job for. How many years did you work at the paper mill? I? was there thirty two years and you didn't start writing till you were around fifty or is that is fifth well I'm fifty six now and I started writing when I was forty five. Okay. So how come it took so long did you know? When you weren't writing did you know that you had that in you? Well. You know I'd always been a big reader as I said and I love books. And I think maybe in the back of my mind, you know always thought writing would be a great way to get by in the world and you know, of course, I was very naive about it. The principal reasons for me you know as far as being a writer were one, you were your own boss. To you could do it anywhere. And three, you made lots of money. Wasn't until actually began writing it. I found out. That was a real true. But I. Think you know Sorta like maybe a fantasy that? It was in the back of my mind for a long time. I had a problem with drinking and for a number of years and you know it was one of those fantasies that when you got half loaded and You started daydreaming or whatever it was. One of those things that you thought about right thought about. But it wasn't really. You know I went to school when I was in my thirties I went to college I went to Ohio University and I ended up with a degree in English and You. Know even while I was there though I wasn't thinking about being a writer I never took any writing workshops or anything like that. But then finally when I was forty five my dad retired from the paper mill. And there was just something about watching him retire and go home. and. You know that was you know pretty much the end of his career and it really. Bothered me and I. Just. decided. I had to try something else you know. To some other way to. Spend the rest of my life. So. When you decided, you wanted to learn how to write what did that mean? Any. Writers or anything in for a while I just sort of scribbled and struggled. And then I'd read an interview with a writer and I can't recall her name now or no it was a lady. But she talked about typing out other people's stories as a means of maybe getting closer to them or just learn how to put a story together. and. So I started doing that. Who did you type out? I typed out a lot of different stories I. I was typing out a story at least once a week and that went on for about a year and a half. So John. cheever hemingway. Flannery. O'Connor Richard. Yates Dennis Johnson the you know the list just goes on and on if it was a story that I really liked and it wasn't. Long I, type it out, and then I carry it around with me for a week and you look at over and you know jot notes on stuff like that, and then I'd throw it away and do another one. Typing a story out, just was a much better way for me to see how you know person puts dial together or you know. Moose from one scene to the next that sort of thing. Was it hard for you to find your subject matter as a writer? Well when I first started. Trying to learn how to write. As. I said like maybe I would copy out John cheever story. So then I would try to write my own story about some East Coast suburbanite having unfair. Something like that or maybe I'd write about a re Rita Andrei debut story, and then I'd write about a Catholic priest. and. So I did that for maybe two years or so and it just wasn't working at all for me. and. Then filing maybe at about two and a half years, I wrote a story that's included in the book. Knock him stiff called back teen. And it's a very short story. and. It's about these two losers sitting in a donut shop. And that was the first thing that I had. Written that I thought wasn't too bad. And so then I increasingly started focusing on you know the people that I knew about instead of nurses, lawyers, that sort of thing that I had absolutely no idea. How to write about There's a passage in your new novel that's about a bus driver and the bus drivers father had gotten a certificate from the railroad for not missing a single day of work in twenty years and bus drivers. Mother always held this up as like what you could do. If you really you know were strive and tried to accomplish something when the bus drivers father died the bus driver hope that that certificate would be buried with his father's. We didn't have to look at it anymore, but instead his mother just like. Put It on the wall, display it in the living room. And then the bus driver thinks it wore on you after a while other people's accomplishments. I love that sentence did you ever feel that way I mean he kochman here seems. So relatively small like a good attendance record and not to knock that. But for that to be like, you know the zenith of somebody's life is. You. but did you feel that way that a war on you? Other People's accomplishments? I don't think that I paid so much attention to other people's. Successes or whatever. But I, know that I was aware you know by the time. I was thirty two or so and I've been working at the mail for about fourteen years. And I knew that all the guys that I had come in with you got hired about the same time as mayor guys even much later than that. You know they own their own home. Maybe. They owned a boat and they had two or three vehicles and they were married and had kids and on and on and on. You know in contrast to them. I've been divorced twice. I'd filed bankruptcy when I got sober I was living in this little very small apartment above this garage. Of. Motel Room and I've been living there for about. Four or five years. I owned a black and white TV that my sister had given me and I had this seventy six chevy that had the whole side of smashed in and that was it. You know for fourteen years of working there. That's what I had. And so you know there was that sense I guess of me just being a failure. Wasn't really that I wasn't jealous of those people or anything like that. I, mean I had enough sense to know that you know where I ended up was my own fault. But there was always that that idea in back of my head that. I could have done more you know I could maybe went to college or something you know. I'm sure you know if I'd wanted to go to school when I was eighteen, my dad would try to help me. and. That's not the route that I chose though how has your life changed? Now as a published writer, you have a collection of short stories. You have a new novel you got a thirty five thousand dollars cash prize, the pen, Robert Bingham Award. So, what's different about your life? well, I have a lot more time to just set on the porch and. Smoke and daydream. Think it's a legitimate. Yeah well, at least that's what I tell my wife. But my life hasn't really changed that much I. Mean I get a lot more emails. Now you know that sort of thing, but you know I still live in the same house I still pretty much. You know my daily routine is. I really can't say that it's changed that much. It's a good life and I'm thrilled that you know I've got a publisher and. You know had at least a little bit of success. You know I know a lot of writers out there a lot of writers out there who are much better than I am. And would. Probably give their left arm. To be setting, you know where I'm setting today. Well Donald Ray, pollock thing you so much for talking with us. Terry I appreciate. It. Made my day. Donald Ray pollock speaking to Terry Gross in twenty eleven. The devil all the time a new movie based on his novel of the same name.
"arvin" Discussed on Locations Unknown
"So And I was just getting at the point to foul play. You would have happened in Arvin being an imposing presence. You know it's not GonNa be easy to You'd think if someone was trying to hide the body that investigators would find that sure So it's just another aspect of it. That's kind of puzzling. Two thousand fourteen. Just two thousand fourteen. I apologize so so you guys. Obviously at the memorial you were talking with the locals what what's kind of the theory around town or do people people kind of think foul play as well. That's I think the two theories are either file a Or you know again. Lost his footing. Yeah slipped under some shopper. Brolin I'm Jay has mentioned to. He might have taken a wrong turn. I think as you pointed out in your prior episode there a lot of I am sure he had maps and compass because he was the kind of person but yeah he didn't have GPS and he may have taken a wrong turn or something did he. Did he have any formal kind of survival training or anything that you're aware of not that I'm aware of other than he. was you know an avid hiker current. Pretty well prepared. General Eighty would always you know bring food and have always had plenty of extra supplies like Foil blankets and hand warmers. Whatever sort of? Yeah I mean he was he was more or less living in in that back country. Most of the time anyway like a lot as much of the time. He was more or less living out of his Dan. He was as a you know. A A site hosted a lot of the campgrounds mean he was he was basically announced door guy acting. That's the was the other thing I was gonNA mentioned earlier as far as like you know whether he had a disposition to sort of like disappear or war. Whatever like my my thought has always been like him? Moving to big Sur. was that very. That's how he was getting away from modern life like He. He did it like he did this. Like I think Jason I it some level I admire the way that he sort of just lived this very kind of counter cultural using a camping. Camping wasn't a hobby like that was his life. He lived outdoors ores. And we're doesn't really like it was already an escape is what I'm saying like. Why Scape from your escape? Yeah No. That's a good point. Yeah you you know I. I didn't think of that initially when we're researching Arvin. But he kind of already was kind of living that minimalist lifestyle and now that you guys have said you know kind of what we thought through the research that there is no outward sign that he was depressed or anything so I yeah I think the theory that he was trying to you know get lost is not a plausible theory. well Is there any any anything else about Arben or the disappearance or are there any. Are there any people still that you know. Have family or friends you know. I was still kind of want a year visiting area looking for stuff for film up until this year which was the fifth year some of the people that relived with They were part of a fraternity at San Jose State we would meet in Carmel Valley and have a memorial hike sort of annually at school. Yeah this this year. It didn't happen not really looking for them. It just yeah to share stories and Speculate Yeah No. That's cool. Yeah we see that. With a lot of these people like to come back and Sometimes the family will go through the area looking looking for stuff but a lot of times. It's just remember the the Fun Times Hiking and Well Yeah so is there any anything else about Arvin that you guys would like tell any any funny stories out on the trails with him any any time that you're not surprised you or I just remember For whatever reason there was like a couple of years where it seem like every time we went out we got rained out it definitely would not like want to leave like you definitely like stuck it out but it was kind of. I don't no you just. He was very good humored person out there. I didn't spend nearly as much time as I as Jason did with him. I I really can't think of. I'm not even like four depression. I really can't even think of him being in a bad mood. You just like a super positive optimistic guy. He befriended everybody You know he could mm sit up for hours and hours around fire. Talking he played the harmonica was just like. I don't know just like a person you wanted to be around. Yeah Yeah and yeah. If there wasn't a mean bone in his body my wife said I think he was. You know if he was ever a little sad about something you would pick himself up and move on the morning time In a lot at many many funny stories to share but he was very good natured. Well humored guy just positive super positive and I mean he he would spend a the other thing it was funny is very social show but sometimes he would go on and Dave Pasta retreat. Where you don't speak to another human for ten days so it's not unlike? Yeah I I mean I could see him be out on the trail by himself and you know being happy being alone for a little bit too Yeah that's That's interesting and I and I I think we all know people. I have a couple friends that no matter what you do. They always have a positive attitude So That's interesting about about his. His nature Well guys I really appreciate you coming on to talk about Arvin and his disappearance Yeah I think I really I really like the theory. You guys kind of drilled home about the foul play. I think something unfortunately happens. improbably human related out on the trail and Yeah I I think there's probably some gaps. I I wish we could have talked to the the sheriff from Monterrey county to kind of. I don't even know if they can discuss the case. Because it's I think it's still open shorter But yeah once again thanks for coming on and and really appreciate it. Thanks for doing the story but welcome back everybody and again. Thank you to Jay A.. And Jason for taking the time of your day to do the interview with Mike and give us some of that great feedback in inside INFO onto Arvin. His abilities as a hiker occur and just in-depth explanation your friendships with them. I think it was very insightful and really helped us personally. I can't speak for you Mike. But it helped me personally really rethink about Arvin as a person. I know one of our crazier theories was that he went into wit sack or and he just disgusting uh-huh towns and stuff so this really Kinda obviously changed that perspective because we have more info absolutely as you as you know from the interview I the Ajay and Jason really leaning towards of foul. Play being you know the theory behind what happened Arvin and I. I think I'm really sold sold on that. Based on the fact that you the area that he went back into you know hike is a pretty pretty rowdy area of California based on you know what we were what I was told in the interview. And you know there could have been some type of racial elements or You know he came across a crime or something strange happened up at that cabin but I definitely think it was is foul play because Arvin definitely you know. I can't remember it was. Jason said you know. His escape was moving to big Sur. That was kind of his. You know getting away from society so they didn't think he was going to also want to you know that then afterwards you know. Try to be lost out in the woods so oh sure yeah. It's it's that whole idea of who is a person that we just learned more information on. In addition to all the great things the community in big Sur said about him so I I think I agree with you. I think it solidifies the theory that we weren't pushing so hard the initial episode. But I think yeah I'm with you you and I'm with them. It's it's unfortunately probably foul play and there just hasn't been that full closure of recovery yet. Yeah so Well thank you again for everyone. The tuned in. I know we've been teasing this one for a while. We are going to have a couple of new episodes coming out hopefully before the end of the. You're coming up so stay tuned and like Joe said in the beginning. If you haven't listened to the original Arben Nelson episode check. Check down in the description of this this interview. And you'll see a link to it absolutely and as always if you're hiking camping fishing. Whatever Motrin.
"arvin" Discussed on Locations Unknown
"A criminal investigation or I'm not trying to read too much into. It is just just one of these things really like. Oh you know some black man gets lost in a forest in. It doesn't seem like there's much attention given to it as it was like it was like a a white woman or whatever again. This is just me speculating. But I think it's we're thinking about WanNa take it from there. Sure renew say something like oh go ahead I yeah that yeah. Think about that as well and You know yeah might be some cartel growers back there or something he might have stumbled upon the that might have played into that also You know this the the search and rescue effort did go on for I think. Do you know well over a month after that but Especially on weekends. You know as you mentioned there were helicopters and planes and I think at one point. They had several hundred did search and rescue people one weekend. They made them. Yeah like a big push. I'm kind of figuring that you know he might have had food for a couple of weeks have been able to survived Just on water. which is the most important thing? Yeah but then I think after about a month they sorta through the town may have moved onto other issues. But yeah you know it's it's Kinda sad you know we see this in case after case where there's a real hard push in the beginning and then it kind of case just Kinda you know people forget about it and move on and we did a case and a guy a Paul Miller. You're a Canadian guy. That went missing in Joshua Tree and his family still flies down there and hike the trail that he went missing on trying to find clues. There's something missing and even the Park Service tells us that they'll do trade their training sessions in areas where people have gone missing just out of the you know outside outside chance they may find something but interesting. Yeah it's sad that You know these these cases kind of just you know float off into the ether after a time So I I think that's a really interesting angle that we didn't look at in the original episode of not necessarily fairly may be a racial element. But just it's it's kind of wild back there with some interesting characters and something. Yeah maybe maybe came across A drug dealer a growing something out there as it's really strange they didn't find anything from him. That's one thing I was going to say that you you registered stirred with Rei. I know His friend that he left his stuff with an and the sheriff in Monterey looked up all his gear like what Color Paki had one confined everything not a trace. And that's the really strangest thing. Yeah it's a we see this all the time it's just it's almost like the these people just vanish off off the face of the planet. It just like they're gone. 'cause how how can a search of hundreds of people helicopters canines. You know all all these resources and not find a shoe or a backpacker anything. It's it's puzzling. Did either of you Get contacted did by any of the law enforcement. They're investigating at the time. I did a couple of times I think at the initial Someone from the sheriff's Office has called me just because I was his emergency contact unlike some of his work forms okay And you know just some some basic questions like do. Do you know where he's been. Have you seen them in kind of. Yeah Yeah Pretty Koci so they really at that. Point probably didn't have any any clue what happened to them or yeah still go yeah One thing I we don't know about is At the time of his disappearance did Arvin have any family family in the United States. Yes his sister Zony Lives in Colorado and I actually met her Several months after his disappearance she came out to kind of put his affairs in order. Your take you know his belongings back for his nephew. Her her son so whom he had a good relationship with. I think he wasn't. It was kind of a strange from his sister but he liked. He got along with his nephew. Okay did did Arvin have any any partners. In Big Sur at the time of his disappearance or was he kind of you know kind of Living the bachelor lifestyle. Mostly the bachelor lifestyle. I I know you got a couple of women. Friends that he was Fairly close was too but I don't. I don't think he was in a committed relationship at the time I have heard so I think yeah. Okay Yeah it's just it's interesting to kind of fill in these pieces about arvind and we didn't know before I guess getting into kind of what I think. Everyone probably struggles goes with his. What happened to them? In our episode we covered a lot of different theories including exposure animal attack One of our wild series was foul play involved in the cabin and I know I know you guys kind of you mentioned to me that that probably was a isn't a plausible theory. But you guys know the area and New Arvin what. What do you think happened to him? It is I just want to jump in with one thing and that is in. I think I mean even in recent conversations that Jason in a by had together. I don't know that we've really ruled out the foul play idea It's because it is one. It's one of the theories that explains there being nothing to be found. Yep there there's also we can talk about this too there. There's the unlikely chance that he might have crossed over to the coast side of the highway. And you could you could fall down a cliff and be taken out with all of your stuff never be For for none of that to ever be found again I that feels really unlikely to me that it's a it's a real. Oh big detour. It's possible but you really have to make an effort to get out to the cliffs but I don't know I I think the last time Jesus talking about this week we got a little. We just ended up talking about this idea like what happened at the cab allot enver. And I'm I'm I'm a person who is very curious about like how that was investigated like if the last place that he was seeing was a remote cabin alone like yeah they did they bring out dogs they dig stuff up It just I don't know it feels like a location where you could Do something to somebody and hide them in the I think to speak to what you and Mike and Joe discussed it you know. I think it's Jack in his son. taking off in the helicopter asking him if he wanted to go with. You know they sort of Validation that everything was okay at that time when they took off but use the possibility that someone came along to the cabinet because there aren't many houses out there and perhaps it was trying to break in the guy there that they didn't expect and you know who knows what happened. I think. Yeah Yeah No. That was one of the I think thinking back. That was one of our theories that maybe he was at the cabin when other people were coming out there to maybe burglarize it. I Know Jack was I know. Didn't they make some really expensive violin bows violin bows out there. Yeah so one of the more or plausible theories we had was that you know Arvin was staying there for the neider stopping there for some reason and he just was in the wrong place at the wrong time but you think evidence of that would would have been found in the if if they did an investigation there which I don't no no I try. We tried to get the current sheriff of Monterey County to do an interview. And we're about to get him on and he didn't but it would be really interesting to no if they had you know law enforcement out there to investigate that area But yeah so I think I think knowing that that area is pretty wild back there. I think foul play for me now is becoming the the most likely theory. Sorry Sir I mean it. It's not impossible that he could lose his including Some of the locals that I talked to at his sort of memorial. Yeah party that we had said. Oh yeah he could. You know there's places where he could lose his footing slide under some shopper. I'll not be seeing and then you know as Jane mentioned and just a year or two later there was a very devastating fire that started Kind of wiped out a lot of the area so if there was any evidence it may have gone up. That's a good point. Yeah I If any anything you know clothing or backpacks shoes probably would have gone up in smoke. Can Forest Fire Right. I guess not so. I don't know yeah I don't know yeah. It's a in one question I have for you guys that know the area so if if if something would have happened to him out at the cabin is they're easy access via like could you get four wheelers back there. Even a trucker is it. You GotTa hike in in and out of their use a helicopter. I think he got a hike in. I'm not okay very familiar. I I read a story about Jacqueline's That you know like He. He would walk in when he was younger. You know how many miles from yeah from big Sur but yeah that's you know. He needed medical attention or something outlive. Not and there's no cell phone reception back there at all. Yeah and especially. We're talking two thousand six.
"arvin" Discussed on Locations Unknown
"I think so where he was though. It's when you get east of Sykes hot springs it's it it becomes pretty remote. I think you know it's not for the faint of heart or thin skinned hikers but yeah okay yeah yes it is there. It is pretty vertical in spots to their areas of the trail that are pretty rocky. Okay and and sort of somewhat steep grades there's fairly big like cones and peaks back there. Okay so it definitely definitely. It sounds like the first half of the hike is more you know any your typical day hiker could do but the spot that Arvin kind of pushed into more remote and and probably more for experienced hikers. I think so yes. Okay you know. Giving given all that kind of vocation profile. I'm I'm sure you guys have hiked with Arvin enough to know. Do you think he was prepared to to go out there. The day he went missing or would there been in some reason. You would have been packing light or you know bring water. You know something like that. I don't think so he was pretty. Well prepared Oh yeah in general okay so I think My next question so Jason. You're the one you've known him for decades Jack Aids. Yes one of the things John. I had a really tough time. Researching was kind of past life so and obviously original episode. We had some kind of wild speculation on different theories of why he went missing. Sure and largely driven by We didn't have a very clear. Grasp of you know who Arvin was really as a person kind of much before not I think we know kind of how you is like when he You know months before he went missing. Sure but we don't have a picture of Arvin the person you know decades before you went missing so I don't know if you could fill the listeners. In on in kind of the Arvin that you knew over the decades yeah certainly was happy. Go lucky kind of guy as you described At least the past ask ten years using big Sur ever. Since I've known him a light I met him at San Jose State where he moved from Colorado he originally we attended Colorado State. And just funny aside. My cousin from Chicago met him on the orientation bus. Nineteen eighty-two at Colorado State. His friend drew moved to San Jose to go to San Jose State. He sort of followed and I was friends with One of his roommates where he was living in a large house with a lot of guys as which is how we got to know each other up while we were in college he was a business major and then Shortly shortly after we graduated I was working in adobe where I'm Jay and Arvin was working in printing sales and a sort of a he. He did a little bit of banking and then went into printing sales and decided he didn't like the suit and went to go back to a waiting. Tables also doing fine dining and nice restaurants and then finally decided to kind of Parse down all a lot of his belongings allowing some he had spent several summers working at big Sur various campgrounds and restaurants and decided he liked that lifestyle better being being closer to the woods and the water so he moved everything down there at several apartments. Different places either at the campgrounds sounds where he was working with. Have kind of an international destination. So they're like you know. Kids would come on their gap year and work for a year there so he would live in the apartments at the campgrounds or renting a cottage from someone. Okay what about His Teaching Simpson's take all yes. Excuse me thanks for being that up. Yeah he was. He was also a substitute teacher. He added a credential for so he some weeks he would actually commute During the winter months back to Las Gatos where I was living. Stay with me and then do some substitute teaching during the day. And you like the little kids the most of all but And then go back to big Sur on the weekends during the slow slow part of the air but eventually ended up transitioning all the way down there are and he was taking also classes at Monterey Peninsula College. He was interested in marine biology. And he he went to like a expedition a around around Alaska in measuring the reduced amount of ice. That is up there okay. So it sounds like he's actually he's had a pretty interesting life and It sounds like he's got a lot of different interests. And you know what we were able to read about him. was that kind of like one of those larger than life figures. Catelli for the part of everyone likes them and we didn't read anything. You know anybody saying a bad thing about him. Yeah now how is this. You know the the couple of months leading up to his disappearance. How is his mood or attitude? Around Big Sur. I know everyone's everyone liked him from what we read. Yeah Yeah as far as I know quite well I mean we spoke. I left for a trip to Europe when he in the period when he left for his his his week week long trip. Yeah And we spoke just before that and Yeah I seemed Pretty Normal Arvin even think I saw him a few months before that. Yeah my wife and I took a trip down there and ran into him so is so. There's nothing in a for you to think that he you know anything was going on in his life where he he would you know. Try to go out and no lose himself. I know some of these stories of people going missing and find out down the road that they had you know some kind of hardship in their life and they kind of go out into the wilderness to to not come back Jack. I know that sometimes happens to people but they don't have any reason to think that that's what happened urban. I don't what are you going to say something J.. Oh just yeah and then media comment on on that last question I was going to mention that It had actually been a while since I had seen are in but my girlfriend actually ran into him a few months before he was missing. Okay he he was a like he definitely. Oakland was larger than life. Figure down there and he was a common visitor to Retreats Center down there Essel in there for fifty or sixty years now and yeah they have They open up the hot springs there to the general public every neither really late at night. It's like midnight to one or something when the general public can go you. He was to be found. There are a lot he hung out at Esselin and Last time I'm My girlfriend psalm was a few months before he went missing. He was just there he is hanging out in the tubs. Totally convivial and friendly A. G. said like as happy as she'd ever seen him so that was sort of the last. I don't know Jason may have been over every year that I had personally seizure that he had YOU ASK BE I. I don't have any reason to believe he would have been depressed or had anything going on. That's one thing I've thought a lot about two. And Yeah. He left his wallet in all his belongings with his friend. Jesse and said you. No if if I'm not back by the fourteenth right don't show up to work calling the cavalry I don't I don't think he would have You know he wouldn't have thrown. I wouldn't have been like him to throw that kind of mask over. Yeah disappearing himself. Yeah no yeah. I mean everything that we could find on a kind of echoed. What you guys? Both just said that he seemed like a real happy guy you know. Everyone liked him. No signs of that at least Komo externally and as far as arvin purse himself From either he was a pretty pretty big guy he was over six feet tall. I mean he's not the Kinda guy that's going to get assaulted on a trail. You go down without a fight is kind of what I'm getting at sure. He he was eleven on a fighter for sure but yeah he could but he did have the he had kind of an imposing physical presence for she s. That kind of leads me into my next question. I I can't remember which one of you brought this up. This was something Joan I totally. We didn't even think of at the time but but you said that in the area where Arvin went missing there was there could have been some type of racial element to it. I don't if either of you want to kind of expand on that I probably brought that up I mean I think just It just one thing to be said is like there. Aren't that many black people in in big Sur and there were like you're just like anecdotally a lot of people that if you were to say. Hey you know urbanistic Oh accused the black guy like it was just sort of and they didn't Enron they were saying that in a in a racial way I'm just saying like it was very. It was very obvious it was sort of an obvious fact. Yeah and I think what one of the angled. There's actually a couple of different things I think. As far as this angle goes in one is the area that he went missing missing in It's not exactly deliverance. But it's it's it's pretty wild like there's survivalists lists out there the pot growers there's a actually in that valley between the highway. One in one one JAS media can help me remember this. I think like long nauseam mental road which which connects the two highways. There's actually really Wargames that are conducted. Back there in. It's it's just. It's a real rough and rowdy sort of back country. Yeah Yeah I've got a friend in LA. He was down the street neighbor for me who lived in Monterey for almost twenty years in when I was telling him this story. You just this just Kinda like Hawk Deny Brown he he was just like yeah. You know there's there's just some rough the people back and it just it kind of leads you to wonder like if there could have been some Racially inspired violence is or whatever but the other part that I think a lot about is Sort of the length and depth the investigation. which is which always seemed sort of like weirdly short and shallow? Yeah I mean there was a there was a pretty intense sort of search and rescue effort during the first couple of weeks but it just Kinda fell out of you and then there wasn't there wasn't a lot of coverage about.
"arvin" Discussed on Locations Unknown
"That's available double online and Jay and Jason had a lot of great insights on the location where he went missing what they think happened to them. And just some overall details on what Arvin was like as person before he went missing. So I'm I'm glad we. I'm glad we got this interview. Set that up because I know we If in I'll say right now if you haven't listened to the RV Nelson episode. I would say go back. Listen to it as episode would five sorts. Obviously a while ago took a little bit to get this interview together but Mike You all the credit on coordinating and actually do the interview. I was not pleasant for it but go listen Arvin Nelson episode and then tune into the interview. Because you're going to hear from two very very close. Friends of Arbenz was what one of them was in college with with the room mates and one of them. Yeah one of the guys Arvin in college in his no new for decades and the other guy New Arvin during his time living in California. They both hiked with him a lot so they've been hiking with them. They've been in this area with him before he went missing They weren't neither of them. Were hiking with them on the hype that he went missing but they they had a lotta great insight in Arvin into urban in the case. So yeah it's a it was a great interview is a little hard to coordinate. One of the guys lives in New York and the other guy lives on the west coast so In obviously we live in the Midwest so it was a it was a little tough coordination but we finally finally got everyone together and Got The interview awesome. Then I'll say out without further ADO. Let's send it over to the interview with Jay. Jason I'd like to first of all thank Jason and J. for for agreeing to speak with us on Arvin and before before we get into Arvin and the location. I'd like both of them kind of just to introduce themselves and you know tell us tell us how how you got to know Arvin so when we start with Jason All right. I'm Jason Cellist and I've known Arvin for thirty two years IM- originally met in in College at San Jose State and Yeah we've kind of become closer and closer friends after we left school and it started camping pretty often together and then hiking okay. So you've known him for a long time so yes You'd consider yourself probably a really really close friend of Arvin really close friend. Yeah okay would come to Thanksgiving's dinners at our house and so I'll in J. introduce yourself I'm jail rear and I know Arben through Jason. I met Arben much later In Fishing Arben Friendship Jason. I am also been camping hiking together. Would you say Jason last twenty years or so maybe probably yeah and I'd say that I was with Jason and Arvin on camping trips. I WANNA say like six to eight times over that period. You know wiest the most Made upwards of ten but it was almost always in the geography that we're going to be discussing where disappeared but I know Arben much less closely but I do have that context of having hiked and camped with him with Jason. Okay yes so kind of diving right into the hiking aspects so as both you mentioned. You've you've known Arvin for while hiked with with them lot before we get into you know when he went missing would you say that. He was a pretty experienced hiker. He kind of knew his way around out on the trill Israel. Yes yeah I'd say so. And he knew he knew at least sort of the front side of that trail from big Sur station to Sykes Hot Springs Quite well yeah okay. So the the location that you went missing Was the ventanas wilderness. I know In some of our previous conversations you had mentioned some things about the area that we hadn't thought about before Why don't you go into kind of the terrain what the trail was like in kind of you know some of the things you guys have come across out there in your past hikes? Do WanNA WANNA speak to that Jay. Act Star of a little bit So the the area that He went missing is is. It's it's definitely back country but it's also like fairly well developed and and hiked on. The trails are clear here Except for maybe a has a different opinion on this except for maybe like a few areas. It's not particularly difficult. Michael it's it's got a lot of exposure it's On the inland which is to say like the eastern part of that coastline so the coastline has highway. Run one running right alongside of it. And they're sort of the western side which are the beaches is and you know kind of more popular Large Parks and trails. Edith died is is more more like quote unquote wilderness. But we're we're not talking like you know it's not like super remote. There's your often you know on a day hike. You will ask a lot of people especially on this on this leg were talking. He went A little further out opt in most people do like most people on a day hike or a couple of days. Hike will stay a little more close to the town of Big Sur and he was on a a trail that went a a little further into Basically ends up in Carmel Valley at a at a monastery in there are people that will do And that that hike that are maybe a little more of a serious hiker than your average day. hiker yeah I guess my only other thing before turning over to Jason is that area that in tunnel wilderness over the last decade or so has had multiple Wildfires tires okay. There's been like a lot of you know burned down and then re growth and then burned down end so you get out there and you know there's places that are you know sort of like basically halfway regrows and I mean we can talk about this later but there are some like weird spots like really crazy overgrowth and in sort of like hidden crevasses and stuff that may have played into okay so so if if you were to go off trail it all there could be areas where you might not see a big drop off or if something happened to you and your trail. It might be hard for people on the trail to see you. Potentially yes. There are places where there's like you know. Madryn or whatever in Fairly thick undergrowth despite the fires that he could have slipped down on. Turn not been seen by helicopter or or rescue search and rescue okay. is I can't remember the specific date. He was hiking when you went missing. But how is the weather usually early in that area. Pretty hot and dry it was I think August Sixth Agai- and it if undrivable ears there are large urge swabs they are between Sort of Toss Sahara hot springs. In China. Camp where he departed from where there you might not run into a river stream for quite a while and it does during the day it can be you know. Depending on the summer can be a hundred degrees crowd. So you got to come in with Enough water under. Yes or no that. They're streams that are active and he would he would have known that okay One of the other things we always try to look at these locations nations kind of wildlife Would there have been any type of wildlife that you were Arvin or either of you would have been. You know worried about hiking out there. Is it pretty. You're you're normal wildlife that you'd see anywhere in California I'd say mostly I think maybe the thing thing that just in that area in general or that I think about when I'm out there are snakes more more than like big cats or yeah I think think actually If I I don't know if you remember this Jason by feeling maybe one of the times we were out there navy even with Arben. There was like sign. Lena bore like wild boar. There sure but people don't go out there necessarily expecting to encounter hats bats snakes and okay in bad insects more good. Yeah okay so I mean it sounds like it's a pretty popular the area to hike. I'm assuming the trails are pretty. Well maintained as well. Yeah.

How to Use the Word "Deviate" in a Sentence
"D E. We I. I E T E R treasure hunt game was planned for the employees during a team building drive. Each team was supposed to follow the clues given on the map any team that will deviate from the given path. Would we disqualified team number two completed the task Vela head of others? But was disqualified now, can you guess why will because they deviated from the given route? This means that they did not follow the given fuck instead, they took another route just to ahead of others. Listen carefully. How we can use the word deviate in eight different situations in eight different sentences. Example, number one of eight Arvin was supposed to give a speech duting the office award function on leadership after speaking on leadership for a few minutes. He deviated from the main stopping and began speaking on communication skills. This impacted his promotion. Example, number two of it. The new bugah joint and town was quite popular as it was having Burgos faster than any other restaurant or Kathy. Do you know why I they had a foster v of cooking? Secondly, the staff would never deviate from the cooking and serving process. Example, number three of it. The metro railway construction was causing a lot of disturbance to the people travelling by that route the main road was blocked for construction and a diversion was created for the traffic every one traveling by that road had to deviate from the regular path and take a longer route example number four of it children tend to deviate from any activity that they are doing at a given time hence, MRs Simon main her lessons so interesting that every child would focus on his own activity for a longer time.

The Patil family had planned to go for a safari on the weekend due to heavy rainfall the wildlife century was closed for a few days, hence, they had to deviate from the original plan and visited a beach. Instead, let's see what example number six has in store for us. Everyone in the town was excited to watch the ice skating finance as Joe was presenting the town in this championship. Unfortunately, Joe lost his balance and deviated from the choreography, hence, he couldn't win the championship example, number seven eight. Wash was preparing for her medical entrance exam after of thinning a distinction in HUD, twelve grade. She cleared the examination of it. Good marks. However, she deviated from the medical field and took up architecture. This was because she realized that she was passionate about designing state of the art offices with create interiors. Do you know we are at which example now, we are at example, number eight or fate doc was responsible for supervising the office building construction. It was slated all scheduled to be completed within two years. The construction was halted for a week due to heavy rains. However, his strategy is well and did not deviate from the date of the final handle. Wow.
