Barb McQuade on the Secret Merrick Garland Memo
"Everybody's freaking out over the, you know, I guess secret Garland Merrick Garland memo, right? That is sites bars demand to flag the AG at the agency's investigating a presidential candidate. Am I wrong not to freak out? Because you know me, I'm prone to freak out. But yeah, no one will ever accuse you of not freaking out enough. But thank you. I think this is not a freak out moment. This is really, you know, I object to a lot of what William Barr did as attorney general. He did a lot of bad things in wrong things. I don't think it's wrong to say the boss should know if you're going to open an investigation on a political candidate for president. You should know. If you could have a prosecutor go off, either because they're rogue, but more likely just because, you know, they got excited about something that they see. And the attorney general should know about that. That's all. That's all it says. So I don't think this is something to freak out about. In fact, I think it's just good management.
Barb McQuade Explains Why There Are More and More Jan. 6 Witnesses
"We were just talking off air as a prosecutor. One of the things because we keep saying, oh my God, could this hearing be pushed too? Because you think keep saying more evidence, more bombshell, more witnesses. We were saying, we're sort of like, stop committing crimes. So we can wrap this up, right? I mean, part of it is a prosecutor is good news for you, right? Yeah, you know, there's so many crimes you can't keep up. They keep committing new ones, right? No, I think though Stephanie is a really interesting observation that America kind of gets to see in the light of day. This happens to prosecutors all the time. You think you're close to the end. It's why supervisors are always saying ones that investigation going to get wrapped up and you're like, I think next week, but then next week you put in a witness and they tell you about 5 more and you think shoot, I can't ignore these other 5 witnesses. They might number one. Tell me something more incriminating. Additional crimes, additional evidence, or exonerating. And that's a part of that the Justice Department has to worry about too, which is, I don't want any surprise witnesses. I don't want any Perry Mason moments for somebody, the courtroom doors burst open and someone walks in and says, I'm the one who did it. You know, you've got to talk to everybody. And so it's what causes delays, even though when you think you're done, you're usually not done because there's always one more person to talk to. And so another important point, though, Stephanie is knowing when you are done. And so a good supervisor of prosecutors is like a good kindergarten teacher. You know what you're doing in your finger painting and they keep wanting to add more and more and more. At some point, the teacher has to say, you know what? It's done. I'm going to take this away from you and post it on the wall so you can see it because it looks great. Supervisors need to do it to prosecutors as well because there's always one more witness you want to talk to.
Jen Kirkman's Ivana Conspiracy
"I just want to talk about a conspiracy theories with you because you said just the fact that he managed to write something nice makes me think he had her off. Okay, I'm just saying the day before he and their kids are supposed to give a deposition for all their climbing in New York. I'm just saying, I'm not saying, well, here's the thing. I mean, it's such a statement about how crazy our news media is and everything is that we don't even know what to believe. And I really was joking. I don't think he had her killed, but I would the thing is she wasn't going to be testifying. The kids were, but I could see him doing something stupid. Like, having someone killed because it would push the thing back one week. He thinks so small that he's like with a death will push it back when maybe available.

The Inspiring Story of Raido GM Barb Yoder
"General manager of the radio station that carries our show in the Tampa Bay Area, really our flagship station since I live in Florida now full time, barb yoder is a pretty amazing woman. She's the general manager of AMH 60 the answer she runs the cluster of Salem radio stations in the Tampa Bay, saint Pete Clearwater region. And she's a pretty remarkable woman. She's a cancer survivor. And as somebody who has followed her for years and worked with her, that was pretty tough for all of us, not to mention what she went through, and yet she beat it. And when she beat cancer, the journey she was on was inspirational to anyone who knows her because being the strong person of faith that she is, she never, ever expressed any doubt or reluctance to embrace the idea that God had this that God was in control no matter what the outcome God had this. And you know that about people of faith, you know that deeply spiritual believers. Understand that no matter what adversity you face, God has this. It may not be the outcome you want, maybe it will. And thank God in barb yoder's case, it was exactly the outcome that we had all been praying for. She beat it, she is fit and healthy and ever smiling and a great presence in my life.

Rep. Gallagher Proposes Bill to Get Americans From Afghanistan
"Going over the reaction to the president's scurrilous and and cowardly announcement that we are leaving americans behind he's got the changes mind congressman mike. Gallagher took to the floor of the house yesterday. cut number eighteen. Thank you madam speaker. I rise today to urge defeated the previous question so that we can consider my bill five zero seven one to ensure no americans are left behind in afghanistan over the past week. We've all seen the horrifying images coming out of kabul babies being passed over barbed wire two year olds trampled to death bodies falling from c. Seventeen these pictures are now forever painted onto american history and they don't depict the orderly withdrawal that the president promised these are instead portrait of chaos of tragedy and dishonor and yet the administration assures us they plan for every contingency was the plan for america to give billions of dollars worth of us military equipment to the taliban was the plan to put terrorists. Effectively in charge of security around the kabul airport. Was the plan to leave over. Ten thousand american citizens stranded behind enemy lines madam speaker. If this was the plan a plan to surrender so incompetently and on such ignominious terms then our country can't withstand any more of this administration's plants. It's time for this body. This congress to act to hold the administration accountable and save
Psaki Claims It's 'Irresponsible' to Say Americans 'Are Stranded' in Afghanistan
"Is what our allies think of. A singapore prime minister lee in a joint press conference with comma harris yesterday reports that this cut nineteen countries how collisions and take positions and they have to make agree calculations and adjusted that positions from time to time. Sometimes it can be done smoothly sometimes. Hey cops sometimes as things go awry and take time to put things go. Awry of very diplomatic. Way of saying kabul is food and the jen psaki. The pressure is getting to her question by peter. Doocy a famous clip already cut number eleven. The president likes to say. America is that his policies have americans getting beat up by the taliban and atkins handing babies over barbed wire pendants. Is that when he said what. The president meant is that we are going to continue to lead in the world including being the leaders and evacuating not just our afghan partners. Not just american citizens but also our allies and we have done that by evacuating approximately forty two thousand people over the last month that is americans leading that is our men and women and our military leading on the ground securing the airport after the afghans fleet and didn't secure the airport and ensuring that we are taking care of our partners as we promised to notice. She's blaming the afghans for fleeing the airport. The airport was allegedly the place that the united states decided secure secure after abandoning them. Then came the quote. That's going to live for a long time. Cut number ten presents sense that most of the criticism is not of leaving afghanistan. It's the way that he has ordered it to happen. By pulling the troops before getting these americans who are now stranded this he says of that. First of all irresponsible say americans are stranded. They are not. We are committed to bringing american to wanna come home. We are in touch with them via phone via text via email via any way that we can possibly reach. American people stranded.

"Us attorney and law professor university of michigan. Barb mcquaid barb. Before the break we were talking criminal predication and Some of the hints. I feel that the department of justice may have dropped last week now. I didn't drop them to drop hints. But this is you know the normal work you know workings of of the department of justice but the sort of indicate that they might be looking at this or at least willing to look at this in a criminal investigative way and that is first of all. They said they weren't going to invoke executive privilege over former doj officials which is huge for an 'institutionalised like merrick garland to allow to happen. And then dropped the the notes from richard donahue of the call. That trump made to. Jeffrey rosen acting attorney general and then of course the mo brooks decision and that decision i think had kind of i thought it was bigger news than the mainstream media. Portrayed it to be because you know it said in there. Hey first of all it was a campaign rally so you can't be certified but if even if it's not that the court should certify this because instigating an attack on the capital cannot be part of the job of a congressman or any federal employees and. I thought that that was a huge shot across the bow to anybody. Working in government at the time of the department of justice saying we aren't backing you on this because if the allegations and swallows lawsuit or true you instigated attack on the capital and that can't be part of your job or protected by speech or debate or whatever you know you. Can't you can't do that you can't you can't try to kill your boss as part of your job simply can't be the case now so those sort of all kind of tell me either one. The doj is allowing congress to fully investigate this and get the truth out there or two. They might be thinking about it as well or at least they're willing to. I don't know what do you read from. All of these tea leaves. We got last week from department. Yeah i agree that there was a lot of encouragement from those things. I mean one. You're right it is extraordinary to say. There will be no executive privilege when it comes to the january. Six insurrection and they said it was just extraordinary. And even if ordinarily It may apply to some of these deliberations they had ruled that members of doj and trump administration. You may go forward And provide unrestricted testimony. Well it's interesting and it made me chuckle. A little bit about it is it was it was issued in such a positive way as if all these people are just dying to tell their story and good good news. You provide unrestricted testimony as opposed to saying. Hey forget about thinking about Executive privilege as a shield. Here you need to share the truth about what happened so i thought that was encouraging. I don't know if signals anything other than what they said was for congressional committees who are trying to figure out what happened it certainly well for the january six committee that wants to learn what happened but you are right in that if it applies there it also will apply in any grand jury proceedings for criminal investigations so that is a very important and interesting development. The other i think when you talk about the mo brooks matter You know you can't help but notice the parallels between him and donald trump and so the swallow lawsuit names notches mo brooks but also donald trump and others and The idea that it is not within the scope of one's federal employment to participate in the campaign activity or certainly to incite violence is going to apply equally to donald trump. He's not going to be able to hide behind that same argument as he did in the aegina gerald defamation lawsuit some real about face i think for the justice department But here's how they distinguish them they say presidents do have to give public works and so when he gives public remarks about aging caroline claims that she's lying that is protected. I it was interesting to in the mo brooks decision. How many times they said. Here's when we do certify even in extreme cases and they all their examples were defamation cases. And i was like Is that kind of you. Sort of trying to explain to us why the aging carroll case came out the way it was and then they even said you can sometimes even commit a crime. And we will certify and step in as the defendant in your case if you're crime is ancillary to one of your duties but you the burdens on you to prove that but in no world is instigating an attack on the capital or a campaign rally fall into into that scope. Thought that was. I thought that was a very interesting point that they made. But presumably the dc. Us attorney would be looking at all all of this. I think so. I think when it is Rises to this level. I would have to think that the attorney general deputy.
"barb" Discussed on The Bechdel Cast
"Edgar singing a song which goes something along the lines of seagulls in the sand. Can you hear my prayer and it. Oh my god it's funny. The best part of the movie. I think it's great. Yeah there's this has been mentioned so far but there are multiple musical number of in this film It's not a music all but it is music inclusive. Yeah 'cause there's a big that big number when they first got the hotel and then they find out at the motel songwriter. A number is exactly the right term for it is a number. It is a show stopper fifteen minutes in during wand ruse like mid western moulin. Rouge it's really is like so fun to see like just see what people do if they have enough money to do whatever they think is funny because then just very much feels like what this movie is. It's like wow. We could actually get a budget. Do what like the weirdest shit we can think of grape yup So edgar sings his song. Which is my favorite part of the movie. I listen to it on. Repeat this morning Meanwhile barb and star are pretending to have forgotten all about edgar from the night before but they secretly both want to see him again. so first. Barb sneaks out to go talk to him but then she realizes that her and anger aren't really meant to be and she values her friendship with star more than a man so she goes back to her and stars room but then star goes out to meet up with edgar has a very similar if not identical conversation to the one that barb and at girgis had but then he and star have sex which is a secret. that star keeps from barb. I do love that. Does that like barbas. Such a champion. She's like. I can't do this like i need to respect my friend and then stars like I only twice. Yeah i like. I feel like we skipped over. The they also talk to each other in the threesome. Because that was a brave yet is like they had sex together. The first night the reference effects it was. I thought that was kind of an interesting aspect of the day. Portrayed it as kind of a no big deal is so yeah. They move on immediately like left to. You would not know that they fucked each other and never comes up again right there. Just normalizing having threesomes with your friends. Meanwhile sharon's associate a spy by the name of darley buckle played by damon wayans junior contacks edgar to assist him. I love that i love. The scene wither on the phone. Seen is my favorite. I think is. I know i have to go. He's great and then back at sharon's layer. She explains her backstory to yoyo. Which is that. When she was young her family moved to vista del mar where she was bullied for her pale skin and then after an incident which like utterly humiliated her caused her father to suffer a heart attack and die and caused her mother to leave her. Anti-god launched onto a disney cruise ship out of a cannon Sharon vowed to seek revenge on all of the residents of vista del mar hence this big revenge plot as a child. She very much. It's like full on wednesday. Addams nick very. Yeah yeah i. I have some things to say about all of that. I was curious. We're to talk about that. Yeah yeah yeah. Yeah we'll get there Meanwhile star sneaks off to spend more time with edgar and then while that's happening. Barb is doing a bunch of fun stuff that she and star were supposed to do together. They both feel really bad about lying to each other. And then barb finds out about stars love affair with edgar and edgar is about to like call off the whole mosquito plan because he's falling out of love with sharon and in love with star but anyone who's in kristen wig's body he right. I feel like we to to be fair. That feels like what a lot of us do like you know for me. It's not kirsten wig's body but it's like some unkempt man with a beard him out he's got a type you've got ta yup. But then. Sharon convinces edgar that barbara starr are spies. And the he needs to kill them. Meanwhile barbara starr confronted each other about lying but then edgar comes in and ties them up. And then sharon abducts them. Alligators are about to eat them. But they managed to escape with the help of their coup. Lots which if you're not familiar and you haven't seen the movie first of all go see the movie but there are these like very slowly capri type pants that are like very skirt and shorts. Mixed together base yeah. I didn't know that that's what those were called until this movie. Go by many names. Maybe yeah i think i'm going to buy some. I mean they can truly save your life as we see in this movie. One of my favorite bechtol test passes of this movie was kristen. Wig telling the other creston wig to jump off a cliff. It's it was a very feminist moment of the film. Incredible so then. They run off to stop the mosquito attack but ono. Sharon had already triggered the receiver to attract all the mosquitoes. So then they fight with sharon in the middle of the ocean the mosquitoes attack sharon and then barbara star are brought safely back to land by trish the water spirit lady who they had brought up on their flight who is played by reba mcentire and then sharon shows backup with like all these mosquito bites but then she learns the power of friendship and she becomes friends with all of the residents of vista del mar and then barbara star get their shimmer back and they ride a banana boat together and that's the end of the movie love it so let's take a quick break and then we will come back to discuss.

The threat of domestic attacks here in washington clear january six and indirection of the us capital then again friday the killing of a capital police officer.

It looks terrible to have the big of our democracy surrounded by razor wire and national guard troops the temporary outer barbed wire barrier came down leaving.

Barb and Star Go to Vista Del Mar
"Me to talk about barbara star. Is rachel sign a staff writer for the new yorker. Hey rachel her so thanks for joining me for this one. I really was excited to talk about this one with you because you wrote something about it a little view in appreciation of it for the new yorker that i really love and i felt really tapped into some of the things that are special about this movie. I'm going to read a tiny bit of it back to you. Maybe that can inspire conversation so this comes early in what you're writing about it when you talk about the transition from what i would think of as the setup the first twenty minutes or so where we beat barbara starr in their hometown of soft rot nebraska and how it then it then transitions to town of title of vista del. Mar in florida. And so you're right. There solid jokes from the get-go but it's not clear right away. What the movie is up to our. Wigan molo denizens of los angeles where they first met as part of the l. Sketch comedy troupe. The groundlings taking the piss out of flyover over forties then skipping ahead of bit is talking about the the that transition you say but as barbara starr unfolds. It's quirky heroines fuel. Less and less like stand ins for certain kind of tj maxx shopper. Instead the film goes for something far more specific and silly loving often lovely. Where so many comedies are either retreads old ideas or feel designed by committee to hit newsy talking points. Barbara starr is the rare film. That feels sue generous in both conceit an execution barbara starr or such finely drawn characters that they could be nobody else but themselves so that really spoke to me and exactly what i love about this movie and this was going to frame it to you. Is that this movie gets compared a lot to bridesmaids which of course was written by the the co writers and co stars of this movie and malone christian wig and another movie that sprung to mind was spy which is this wild sort of a spoof of james bond films. That's also a female friendship bonding movie with incredible performances by melissa mccarthy and rose byrne i love both bridesmaids an spy but i found this movie far more original than either one and in a way more exciting i mean i can see why bridesmaids changed comedy history. It's an important movie. it's still a very funny movie. But this sui generis quality that you point to i think is is so much more vibrant in this movie which really could only have come out of the imaginations of these two women who are friends in real
Bill is back to make Washington, DC 51st state — still faces high hurdle in Senate
"The license plates for D C. Residents read in big, bold letters and taxation without representation. It's a rallying cry against D. C is the lack of direct voting power in the U. S. Congress as NPR's Barbara Sprint reports. Statehood advocates are hopeful that what was once seen as a liberal pipe dream is now gaining traction. 30 years ago, delegate Eleanor Holmes Norton first introduced a bill for Washington D. C. Statehood. She's back at it, and this time, she says, it feels different. We've gotten off of the wish list, too. On approach of a new reality. Norton says she's encouraged by national polls that suggest growing support for statehood and the record number of co sponsors. The House legislation and its Senate counterpart, have Her bill, which strength the size of the federal district and admit the remaining area as the nation's 51st state. But Republicans stand universally opposed, arguing it would take a constitutional amendment to admit D. C as a state. Here's Georgia Congressman Jody Hice during today's House oversight hearing, the Democratic Party attempting a political power grab of obtaining more senators, that's entirely what this is all about. That phrase power grab is a constant and GOP messaging on statehood, referring to the fact that the district votes overwhelmingly for Democrats and would likely elect two Democratic senators. But Norton tells NPR that at its core statehood is not about politics while we're looking for is equality with other Americans, especially since we pay the highest federal taxes per capita in the United States, she notes that D C has a population of over 700,000 residents larger than Wyoming and Vermont. Last year when the House first past Norton's bill, Republican Senator Tom Cotton of Arkansas, dismissed that point. Wyoming is a well rounded working class state. New state of Washington would not be. It was a barb that stung many residents in the district, including business owner Deana Dorsey Calloway. You can't see me, but I'm having an emotional reaction. The eyes are watering probably hear my voice quivering of it, because Just it's disgusting. It's you're a sure of an entire population of people here in Washington, advocates argue statehood is also a civil rights issue, as most of DC's residents are minorities. We do believe this is one of the most important racial justice fights of our time that stash a Rhodes, campaign manager of 51 for 51, a statehood campaign from our perspective, leaving 700,000 mostly black and brown residents without a vote in Congress is racism. D C. Residents pay federal taxes and serve in the military but have no voting Congress. This is an injustice and honestly a stain on American democracy. Norton's bill is all but guaranteed passage in the House. There's broad support from Democrats in the Senate and the White House. But there's a road block. The Senate has a big brick wall in front of its called the Filibusters that house bills are passing and slamming right into. That's Ellie's up Nick of Fix our Senate, a campaign focused on eliminating the legislative filibuster, which requires a 60 senator threshold to advance most bills. Not all Senate Democrats are on board with eliminating the maneuver, arguing it's meant to protect the minority party. But unless that brick wall is eliminated or changed, D C statehood goes back to being on the Democratic wish list.

What Happened To Berlin After the Second World War?
"The end of world war two signaled and unsure future for the defeated germany. Between the alta and potsdam peace conferences it was decided to split germany into four allied zones the eastern part of the country going to the soviet union to control and the western parts going to the united states britain and eventually france west germany was technically the boondocks republik deutschland or federal republic of germany and east germany was the jewish democratic republic german democratic republic or gd are despite berlin sitting entirely in the eastern part of the country. And i constantly have to remind myself. That berlin was nowhere near the east west divide. The city was also divided into similar zones. The mere existence of west berlin a conspicuously capital city deep within the communist east germany quote stuck like a bone in the soviet throat according to soviet leader nikita khrushchev so tenuous where the relations between the east and west that russia began plotting to drive the us britain and france out of berlin for good in nineteen forty eight. A soviet blockade of west berlin was set up blocking off all rail and road access in an effort to starve the western allies out of the city. In one of the most dramatic standoffs in the history of the cold war the berlin blockade saw the us and its allies supplying their sectors of the city from the air known as the berlin airlift. The allied nations flew in more than two point. Three million tons of food fuel and other supplies over the course of a year until the soviets finally gave up an the blockade things. Were relatively calm for a while. But in the late nineteen fifties. The soviets noticed a trend. Developing people saw how life on the capitalist side was recovering faster than life on the communist side. Not to mention there were a lot fewer spies keeping tabs on regular folks on the western side and people began to emigrate. This was especially true of doctors. Scientists and skilled professionals resulting in a serious brain drain in the east got worse year. Over year khrushchev ordered the east german government to stop the flow of emigrants for good on the night of the twelfth nineteen sixty one in one night barbed wire barriers blockade and even some sections of brick and mortar wall were constructed. It was later reinforced multiple times to become an impenetrable twelve footer. Three point seven meter high concrete wall. Roughly one hundred miles or one hundred and sixty one kilometer. Long complete with no-man's-land. Landmines guard dogs guard towers and checkpoints the relatively fluid border which had until that point allowed some sixty thousand east germans to commute daily to good paying jobs in the west visit. Family and friends attend soccer games and so on was gone with no warning. Whatever side of the border you went to sleep on on august twelve. That was where you stayed for the next twenty eight years. This opposing structure didn't stop people from trying to make a great escape to the west. Roughly one hundred and seventy one people. Some of them defecting soviet soldiers lost their lives trying to cross the border but over five thousand more succeeded and some of them got really creative with it but the first person to cross that foreboding line just hopped over it when the wall was three days old much of it was not actually a wall at all but sections of barb wire fence though with soldiers and police to enforce it one of those was eighteen year old. Conrad shuman stationed at the corner of bernauer. Stresa and opener stresa. He might have been young but he could tell which way the wind was blowing. He wanted out of the gdr like now he pays his feet nervously while chain smoking and occasionally pushing down the barbed wire coil. It was only two feet high. While the other guards were distracted by a gathering crowd shuman swapped out his loaded. Submachine gun for an unloaded and therefore lighter one at four. Pm shoe inflict away. His cigarette took a running start and deathly leapt over the barrier dropping. His gun and just leaving it. As he was whisked into a waiting west german police car a west german journalist captured the leap to freedom in what would become one of the most famous images of the wall until nineteen eighty nine. The west loves shuman but many of the people he left behind considered him to be a lowly traitor even after he was reunited with his family after the fall of the wall a generation later many people still shunned him as a deserter. Shuman was the first soldier from the national people's army to escape. But it's estimated that twenty seven hundred east. German soldiers and policemen followed his example. If someone had turned your home into a prison then you should treat it like a prison and start digging a tunnel in nineteen sixty four thirty students from west berlin spent several months digging a four hundred and seventy six foot or one hundred and forty five meter long tunnel tell people in the east escape one assumes they had to crawl to freedom because the tunnel was only about three feet high less than forty eight hours after it was finished the stasi the german border patrol discovered it but not before fifty seven men women and children had managed to escape. Which i assume is why. It's referred to as tunnel fifty seven

"barb" Discussed on The Best of Stuff
"That's GonNa make a difference our I. We're back so there are again many different varieties of barbed wire and and one book that is that is often mentioned in In writings about the history of barbed wire is a book that was published in. Nineteen seventy seven titled the barbed-wire Able Mess Bombed B O B B by Jack Glover Post and seventy seven and I think earlier as well and I think maybe the edition. I was looking. At least from seventy seven and it contains illustrations of seven hundred and thirty four different steel barbed wire knots including things like scutts wooden block and the Shin round line locked bar and I if you if you can find a copy of this or just find some images of pages a from this book. It's pretty fascinating. Because they're they're neat little illustrations and it just really drives home the diversity that went into envisioning all the ways that you could create a barb out of out of metal wiring. It's amazing how much human imagination went into lengths of wire. That can hurt you now. A particularly nasty variation on all this is we mentioned razor-wire briefly earlier or Concertina wire which is either the same or very similar depending on. How specific you get in your barbed-wire terminology. I thought Concertina wire had to do with like how it was coiled. Yeah Yeah Yeah. So but sometimes the words are sometimes people say. Constantine wire which is just a perversion of the term but But in these are really getting into anti barbed-wire varieties you usually see used in military penal or border settings the the development in widespread use of this sort of why are really goes back to the first and Second World Wars where they were used in trench warfare environments and other fortifications. Yeah and this does seem to be a change over time that like on. Most of the messaging about barbed-wire is As krell points out this culture versus nature thing it's humankind versus the untamed animal world. And you're putting these barriers in place to keep the animals in her. Keep the animals out especially over the course of the twentieth century. Barbed wire is it. Takes a much darker turn and we see it more and more deployed specifically for uses on humans to keep the humans. Enter to keep the humans out. Yeah absolutely now one. Oh we mentioned earlier about masculinity in the marketing and acceptance of barbed wire one huge fact of the American West. Was that while farmers were very much in favor of barbed wire cattleman. Were not because what does it do? When you start throwing up miles and miles of barbed wire fencing well it disrupts the open grazing lands and It prevents cattle and horses From from moving around freely or know from prevents cowboys from moving across the great distances and on top of that cattle and horses could get pretty messed up in barbed wire. I mean. That's that's one thing that is often kind of skimmed over in in the marketing material Is that is that the stuff can really cut up an animal or a human and and put them in some pretty you know. Put them in dire shape. Well I think that's specifically a lot of the early. Advertising was trying to be misleading. That's why it kept emphasizing. The Thorn it was. I think it was trying to suggest your animals will not get hurt. They just You know it will just deter them. We're strategically deploying something that they would otherwise encounter naturally. Yeah but that's not really quite the case so cattleman did not really take kindly to barbed wire for a long time. It was also apparently decried by Texans is not only cruel in alien to the culture of the open range but also as As krell points out quote a Yankee scheme to benefit the industrial north. Okay which I don't know I mean you can. You can certainly understand that point of view right because look at some of the places. It's coming from so some of the birthplaces of the barb wire industry you could easily see. It's like well. This is some stuff that's made up north and they're bringing it down here and they're just selling it to all these farmers and it just cutting up our land and so this is a this is like a whole part of of You know sort of wild west history did wasn't that familiar with but cattleman would sometimes get fed up with it and they'd go and they they just cut down like miles of barbed wire fencing sometimes as part of masked gangs working at night and these mass gangs sometimes even had cool gang titles and then the at first was illegal fencing but then they would also use These vigilante powers against legal fencing as well and in terms of just sort of the humane humane aspect of barbed wire. You had varieties of more humane wire designs that were rolled out the idea being that will be easier for cattle to To to be freed from them of some one variety I was looking at in particular had blocks of wood that were inset in the wire as well but this ended up not really taking off and I imagine a big part of it is that just more factoring required either on the industrial end or on the farmers end and therefore just wasn't Wasn't picked up. Easier to stick with the crueler product in this case. Also Krell points out that the use of barbed wire against humans and animals led to a micro industry of barbed wire ligaments in any skeptics such as silver pine healing oil or Dr Cox limits in antiseptic among others. Basically you know kind of snake oil esque or mental. They may have done some good. Put the healing power of Dr Cox's on your barbed-wire but reynolds will be healthy is ever exactly but I mean it really shows you like there was there. Were enough people in animals getting cut up by this stuff that there was a like a side industry of selling specialized wants to deal with all those cuts to humans and livestock. Yeah totally and as long as we're talking about the cultural impact I mean obviously barbed-wire to be seen as one of the most iconic technologies symbolizing the brutal conquest of the North American continent from From the native peoples who live there. Yeah this is where. Apparently the name the devil's rope comes from is one of the The names for it to that was used by the native peoples of North America. Some of the Plains Tribes Devil's rope you. Yeah and speaking to of the of the precolonial a west normally humans and domestic herds that were impacted but also the American Bison. Which of course more famously suffered from over hunting hunted to the brink of extinction but also this ever expanding use of barbed wire also cut them off from vital grazing and watering areas. So while the story of the invention of barbed wire is an interesting one. It's hard not to be left When you think about the impact of this technology left with a pretty depressing landscape yeah yeah and it. It does literally make a landscape look depressing the at least the more you think about it again. Barbed wires something especially grown up around around it you can. You can take it for granted especially if it is not used so much against your you you know if it's used sort of used against livestock against You know people in an outlying group that you're not a part of perhaps you can. You can be blind to its impact as well but for the most part. It's it's not an invention that I would really classify in the good category However a couple of examples of Of OF USES FOR BARBED-WIRE. Both of which surprise me The the first of which is that while barbed wire couldn't transmit a signal as well as traditional telephone wire. Which is insulated copper wiring You still saw this case in the early nineteen thirties where rural farmers were some of the early adopters of this new technology of telephone lines. And for a few years they would. They were actually using barbed wire Because they had to build out their own telephone collectives and without access to easy access to that insulated copper wire access to the to the barbed wire string the barbed-wire instead which is which is interesting. Wonder what this call sounded like probably pretty rough? Probably Ju just just clear enough to get by and this is just a few years before then it was replaced and also at that point the farmers when no longer required destroying their own wiring. Now more surprising use though was multiple cases that came across off in which barbed wire is being used for science. So you have a great many studies that utilize strands of barbed wire usually. It's like a single strand to study. Bear populations so basically what you have is a situation where researchers will use single strands of barbed wire to obtain. I samples from wild bear populations for DNA testing and this also entails. Bathing them a little bit. Which according to Tom Dixon of Montana outdoors? This would be a bottle that contains quote year-old a year-old fermented mix of cow blood and fish guts which to human is pretty disgusting but to bear. Nice worth checking out. So yeah this is this is fascinating so the idea of course is not to to hurt the bear and really not even necessarily to scrape into its skin but to catch some of its for example for armor that Like a black bear has an its body? So the the barrel. Come to check out the bait and when it does so the The barbs on the barbed-wire will catch some of the for and pull it free then. Researchers were able to use that for You look at the DNA and use it to understand You know basically the shape of wild bear populations so we can. At least we can put that then another check under the positive uses of barbed wire in in world. History away of caring bear populations. I like it. Yeah but there's all half so to. This is the only example there multiple so fun to play with. Is it wire Kinda? I don't know when I was a kid. A backyard wrestler. We played no no not not for. It's kind of cool. Whip around and stuff. Oh well I guess I don't know well it's fun to play with in the same way that like a good sticks one to play with. Well I don't here's thing. I do remember like kids when I was a kid in Newfoundland Canada. The other kids the older kids the dangerous kids were into two things. Michael Jackson Those read a leather jackets. Michael Jackson really. Yeah those very popular and then everybody was making. They're like a mace out of a stick of wood that had nails driven through it So you know. There was like Lord of the flies. I guess. Sounds like an eighty s movie. Yeah it was. It was the eighties. Were they on rollerblades. Now because the roads were were all gravel where I was. I don't know what you would have done with rollerblade there but I don't remember there being a lot of barbed wire around. If there had been I'm sure they would have wrapped it around their makeshift melee weapon. Do they answer the Lord humongous they? I'm sure they knew Lord humongous he was. I think he was pretty popular at the time. Yeah I think that would have been the window for me encountering people playing with barbed wire for the most part. I think I was always like a little wary of it because when I would encounter barbed wire either is either. There was a very good chance that WHO's either like super rusty and therefore kind of Iki or it might be electrified and therefore I really don't WanNa touch it. Of course there's another feature we didn't even mention about bar pliers that strong properly then you can put an electric current through it Which adds to its Effectiveness Yeah and I think in some cases use it like especially in ranching or livestock control. Whatever places where you would once have barbed-wire have been replaced mostly with electric because if you have an electric current going through it and you need not have actual barbs because you have electric barbs but it will come back to what I said earlier is that I think that our attitudes toward barbed-wire they're gonNa really revolve around our own experience in like the area in which we encountered it so I'd love to hear from listeners. Out there like what how? How do you interact with barbed wire like what is what comes to mind when you think of barbed wire and to? What extent is it influenced by the way it is used in your rural setting in your urban setting His as it's used in prison environment or border environments or used in in in in Warfare Fortifications et CETERA. I'd love to hear from everybody on these on these points in the meantime if you want to check out other episode of invention including the episode we did on walls for example you can head on over to invention pod.

If there had been I'm sure they would have wrapped it around their makeshift. Melee weapons. Do they answer the Lord humongous? They I'm sure they knew Lord humongous. He was I think he was pretty popular at the time. But yeah. I think that would have been the window for me. Encountering people playing with barbed wire for the most part I think I was always like a little wary of it, because when I would encounter barbed wire, either is either a good chances, either like super rusty. And therefore kind of. or it might be electrified and therefore I really don't WanNA touch. It actresses another feature. We didn't even mention about bar players that strong properly then you can put an electric current through it, which adds to its effectiveness. Yeah, and I think in some cases use it like especially in ranching or livestock control whatever the places where you would wanna have barbed-wire have been replaced mostly with electric fencing, because if you have an electric current going through, and you need not have actual barbs because you. You Have Electric Barbs but I will come back to what I said earlier is that I think that our attitudes toward wire? They're going to really revolve around our own experience in the area in which we encountered it so love to hear from listeners out there like what how how you interact with barbed wire like what is what comes to mind when you think of barbed wire, and to what extent is it influenced by the way it is used in your rural setting urban setting. Is accused used in. Prison environments or border environments or Used in. Warfare Fortifications, etcetera I'd love to hear from everybody on these on these points in the meantime.

"And every stage after like a good neighbor state. Farm is there are. We're back so there are many different varieties of barbed wire and one book. That is that is often mentioned in In writings about the history of barbed wire is a book to push published in. Nineteen seventy seven titled the Bob Dwyer Bible. That's bombed by Jack. Glover Post and seventy seven and I think earlier as well. I think maybe the edition. I was looking at this. From seventy seven and it contains illustrations of seven hundred and thirty four different steel barbed wire knots including things like scutts wooden block and the Shin Round Line Lock Bar and if you if you can find a copy of this or just find some images of pages from this book. It's pretty fascinating. Because they're they're neat little illustrations and it just really drives home the diversity that went into envisioning all the ways that you could create a barb out of Out of metal wiring. It's amazing how much human imagination went into lengths of wire. That can hurt you. Yeah now a particularly nasty variation on all this is we mentioned razor wire briefly earlier or concertina wire which is either the same or very similar depending on. How specific you get in your barbed-wire terminology. I felt concertina-wire had to do with like how it was coiled. Yeah Yeah Yeah. So but sometimes the words are sometimes people say. Constantine wire which is just a perversion of the term. Oh but But in these were really getting into anti human barbed-wire varieties they usually see used in military penal or border settings the development and widespread use of this sort of wire really goes back to the first and Second World Wars where they were used in trench warfare environments and other fortifications. Yeah and this does seem to be a change over time. That like early on most of the messaging about barbed-wire is as Krell points out this culture versus nature thing it's humankind versus the untamed animal world. And you're putting these barriers in place to keep the animals in or keep the animals out especially over the course of the twentieth century. Barbed wire is it. Takes a much darker turns. We see more and more deployed specifically for uses on humans to keep the humans. Enter to keep the humans out. Yeah absolutely now one. We mentioned earlier about like masculinity in the marketing and acceptance of Barb Wire. One huge fact of the American West was that while farmers were very much in favor of barbed wire cattleman. Were not because what does it do when you start throwing up. Miles and miles of barbed wire fencing well it disrupts the open grazing lands and it prevents cattle horses from from moving around freely. Or you know from CAL. Prevents Cowboy from moving across great distances and on top of that cattle horses could get pretty messed up in barbed wire. I mean that's that's one thing that is often kind of a skimmed over in in the marketing material. Is that is that stuff can really cut up animal or a human and And and put them in some pretty you know. Put them in dire shape. Well I think that's specifically a lot of the early. Advertising was trying to be misleading. That's why it kept emphasizing. The Thorn it was I think it was trying to suggest your animals will not get hurt. They they will just you know it will deter them. We're just strategically deploying something that they would otherwise encounter naturally. Yeah but that's not really quite the case So cattleman did not really take kindly to barbed wire for a very long time. It was also apparently decried by Texans is not only cruel and alien to the culture of the open range but also as As krell points out quote a Yankee scheme to benefit the industrial north. Okay which I don't know I mean you can. You can certainly understand that point of view right because look at some of the places. It's coming from so some of the birthplaces of the barb wire industry you could easily see. It's like well. This is some stuff that's made up north and bring it down here and they're just selling it to all these farmers and it just cutting up our land and so this is this is like a whole part of of You know sort of wild west history did wasn't that familiar with but cattleman would would sometimes get fed up with it and they'd go in. They'd they just cut down like miles of bar blurred Vincent sometimes as part of masked gangs working at night and these mass gangs sometimes even had cool gang titles and then the at first it was illegal fencing but then they would also use the these vigilante powers against legal fencing as well and in terms of just sort of the humane inhumane aspect of barbed wire. You had varieties of more humane. Barb designs that were rolled out the idea. Being it'll be easier for cattle to to to be freed from them. some One variety I was looking at in particular had blocks of wood that were inset in the wire as well but this ended up not really taking off and I imagine a big part of it is that just more manufacturing required either on the industrial end or on the farmers end and therefore it just wasn't Wasn't picked up easier to stick with the crueler product in this case also points out that the use of barbed wire against humans and animals led to a micro industry of barbed wire ligaments in antiseptics such as silver pine healing. Oil or Dr Cox Ligaments in antiseptic among others. Basically like kind of snake oil esque or they may have done some good. Put the healing power of Dr Cox's on your barbed-wire but reynolds will be healthy is ever exactly but I mean it really shows you like there was there. Were enough people and animals getting cut up by this stuff that there was a like a side industry of selling specialized ointments to deal with all of those cuts to humans and livestock. Yeah totally and as long as we're talking about the cultural impact. I mean obviously Barbed-wire think came to be seen as one of the most iconic technologies symbolizing the brutal conquest of the North American continent from from the native peoples. Who lived there? Yeah this is where. Apparently the name of the Devil's rope comes from one of the The name for it That was used by the native peoples of North America. Some of the Plains Tribes Devil's rope. Yeah Yeah and speaking to of the of the precolonial You know a West not only humans and domestic herds that were impacted but also the American Bison which of course more famously suffered from over hunting hunted to the brink of extinction but also this ever expanding use of barbed wire also cut them off from vital grazing and watering areas so while the story of the invention of barbed wire is an interesting one. It's hard not to be left When you just think about the impact of this technology left with a pretty depressing landscape yeah yeah it it. It does literally make a landscape look depressing at least the more you think about it again. Barbed something especially. If you've grown up around it you can. You can take it for granted especially if it is not used so much against your you know if it's used sort of used against livestock or against You know people in an outline group that you're not a part of perhaps you can. You can be blind to its impact as well but yes if for the most part. It's it's not an invention that I would really classify in the good category however a couple of examples of of of uses for barb wire both of which surprised me the first of which is that while barbed wire couldn't transmit a signal as well as traditional telephone wire. Which is you know insulated copper wiring. You still saw this case in the early nineteen thirties. Where rural farmers were some of the early adopters of this new technology of virtanen telephone lines? And for a few years they would. They were actually using barb wire because they had to build out their own telephone collectives and Without access to easy access to that insulated copper. Wire they had access to the to the barbed wire destroying the barbed-wire instead which is which is interesting. Wonder what this call sounded like probably pretty rough? Probably Ju just just clear enough to get by. And then this is just a few years before then it was replaced and also at that point of farmers when no longer required to string their own wiring a more surprising use the multiple cases that came across off in which barbed wire has been used for science. So you have a great many studies that utilized strands of barbed wire usually. It's like a single strand to study. Bear populations so basically what you have is a situation where researchers will use single strands of barbed wire to obtain. I samples from wild bear populations for DNA testing and this also entails aiding them a little bit. Which according to. Tom Dixon of Montana outdoors. This would be a bottle that contains quote year old. A year-old fermented mix of cow blood and fish guts which to a human is pretty disgusting but to a bear. Nice worth checking out so this is this is fascinating so the idea of course is to to hurt the bear a really not even necessarily to scrape into its skin but to catch some of. It's for this ample further armor that Like a black bear. Hasn't it's body so the the barrel to check out the bait and when it does so the The barbs on the barb wire will catch some of the for and pull it free and then researchers were able to use that for a look at the DNA and use it to understand You know basically the shape of wild bear populations so we can. At least we can put that then another check under the positive uses of barbed wire in world history away of caring for beer populations. But that's all half have to. Those are the only examples also fun to play with barbed wire when I was a kid. Backyard wrestlers not. Not Not. I I don't know it was just like Kinda cool. Whip around and stuff. Oh well I guess I don't know where it's fun to play with in the same way. That like a good sticks fun to play with. Well you know I don't here's the thing. I do remember like kids when when I was a kid in Newfoundland Canada. The other kids the older kids. The dangerous kids were into To thanks Michael Jackson. Read leather jackets like Michael Jackson really. Yeah those were very popular and then everybody was making. They were making like a like a mace out of a stick of wood that had nails driven through it so You know just lower the flies. I guess sounds like an eighties movie. Yeah it was. It was the eighty S. Were they on rollerblades. Now because the the roads were were all gravel where I was. I don't know what you would have done with rollerblade there but I don't remember there being a lot of barbed wire around. If there had been I'm sure they would have wrapped it around their makeshift Melee weapons do they answer the Lord humongous they. I'm sure they knew Lord humongous he was. I think he was pretty popular at the time. But Yeah I think that would have been the window for me encountering people playing with barbed wire for the most part. I think I was always like a little wary of it because when I would encounter barbed wire either is either a there was a very good chances either like super rusty and therefore kind of or it might be electrified and therefore. I really don't WanNA touch it actresses. There's another feature. We didn't even mention about bar players that strong properly. Then you can put an electric current through it Which adds to its effectiveness. Yeah and I think in some cases use it like especially in ranching or livestock control. Whatever the places where you would wanNA have barbed-wire have been replaced. Mostly with electric fencing.

"Which could be used to keep an animal from pressing against defense? And so all three of them looked at this idea of roses like a long Wooden Dowell with barbs on it. All three of them independently had the idea that it would make more sense to do the same thing. But put the barbs on a length of wire instead of a wooden rod and then all three set to work trying to acquire a patent and glidden just happened to turn out the big winner of this long and acrimonious dispute. But I think it's funny that like they're all fighting. They're fighting each other and like they all basically got the idea from this other guy But they just all had the insight that wire would work better than than a wooden rod but at some point the defeated inventor Jacob Hayes. Shoe you know who lost this Intellectual Property Battle to Joseph Glidden. He wrote a poem called. Be As happy as you can that is quoted in Krell's book the so good this life is not all sunshine as barbed fence. Scalpers have found the crosses they bear are heavy and under them lies no crown and while they're seeking the roses the thorns full off. They scan yet let them though they're wounded be as happy as they can. It's like the Bobby Fuller four as letter dance of barbed wire and in this. We do have the the the the the crown of Christ imagery as well absolutely but what comes out of this. Is that glidden version of barbed wire is probably correctly understood to be the progenitor of most existing types of barbed-wire today. Yeah in summary of vehicle It is accurate to say that barbed wire quote was born in France independently conceived in the Eastern States of America New Jersey Ohio in New York and grew up on the prairies plains. Where for different reasons farmers especially and later ranchers increasingly defensing are. We're going to take a break but when we come back. We will continue to discuss. Barb wire and we'll even get into one or two examples of barb wire used in a way that we might Well describe.

"Fence like cyclone fencing, etc.. To to make it difficult to climb over right, so you WANNA put fencing around all the trees in your city or something you put this on top of the fence around all the trees beautiful, but after this there were more Frenchman to follow with ideas for barbed wire. There was another guy named Louis Francois Jean who was awarded a patent in April. Eighteen, sixty five zero five years later, was awarded a patent for barbed-wire of a kind of different design. Here the fence. Fence would consist of double twisted wire with diamond shaped barbs made out of flat pieces of sheet metal. So this isn't. This isn't going to be a little like poker. Sticking out like thorns, this is going to be more like sharp flat pieces of metal embedded in the wire as it goes along to the little diamond shaped blades. Yeah, one of the really interesting things to come out of researching. This episode was just how many different types of barbed wire have been devised. It's. It's amazing, and we'll get more into some of the variety as we go here I mean I think there were hundreds just between like eighteen, sixty, seven and eighteen seventy four. Yeah, so later patent was filed by a brick manufacturer from Brittany in out not to be confusing. If you don't know Brittany is in western France in Britain Brittany in western France and this guy was named Gilbert Lard this was granted in August, eighteen, sixty seven, and it was forgive Lords Brigade Sean which describes fence composed of Ron, says Oh, my my French, failing me here, Rhonda's artificial meaning, artificial thorns would be things that would be quote caught between three strands of intertwined wire. This brings to mind a description that that Krell shares he's he discusses the powerful WASHBURN and melon manufacturing company out of Massachusetts, which was a big, a major producer of barbed wire, and of course, a major marketer of liar, they put out some some gloriously over the top descriptions of of barbed wire, the perfect fence and one of the quotes from the perfect fence is quote. The steel barb is nothing more than a thorn, the spur the animal instantly. Instantly retreat from and thereafter carefully avoids yes, it is compared to Thorne again and again emphasis on the natural about the natural nature, the naturalness of the Thorn Michael Kelly of new. York, who received a patent for a barbed wire design on February eleventh eighteen sixty eight rights of his invention quote my invention relates to imparting defenses of wire character, approximating to that of a thorn hedge. I prefer to designate the fence, so produced as a thorny fence. You know you re these arguments in in what could be more natural. You're not making something grossly artificial in industrial. No, you're. You're taking something that the world does naturally that vegetation does naturally just applying it. A little more towards your specific aim. Yeah, I wonder if aggressor Battleplan was anticipating somebody like me. WHO's horrified by the idea of a barbed wire fence around every tree? Because when he's talking about his proposal for Tree Guards, he writes that they quote maybe of double ribbon wire, which allows the addition of small wire points, and when these ribbons are twisted together, the wire points Bristle in every direction and spikes, imitating thorn branches. He's just saying it's like another part of the trees just like a plant. Yeah, you could well imagine him today. Saying naturally trees grow upward and in reach towards the heavens. Why not also help transmit wireless signals telephone? What could be more natural uh-huh, but it's funny I mean, and we're not even really the surface of all the different marketing materials and patents and advertisements and everything that described barbed-wire as a thorn. They were obsessed with this idea that it's just like a thorn Bush is just like a Brier, and I wonder if I wonder where a lot of these comparisons are coming from I think some of it must be coming from like trying to make it seem more humane, more natural less like some kind of gross metal claw. That's invading your environment right and then Some of the literature touts really just pressing. Just how? Culture it is how essential it is to have. Fencing fencing is the thing that separates us from the savages. Right which you know as as Krell points out just sitting. There is steeped in the language of of European colonists, yes, and crow also shows these advertisements from the time that that sort of envisioned barbed wire as the demarcation line of kind of controlled Arcadia, where he where he would depict people walking along lanes, where they would be surrounded by beautiful plants, and then also just like Menagerie of animals, all mixed together like elephants. And camels and horses and dogs and stuff all in the same pins, but they're all separated from these lanes by this elegant, looking barbed wire, and so it's like a I don't know it's it it. It enforces this theme of like man vs beast and humankind versus nature, and we can tame it and put it in the box and control it with these artificial with these industrial thorns, the thorns of human ingenuity. There there's one point for Creil is dealing with this this illustration by one of the the barbed wire. Masters Are A of a of a cow, trying to eat an apple, but is prevented from reaching that apple in this you know otherwise you know a pristine garden environment by barbed wire fencing. Then to the garden of Eden, and the and the you know the the the tree of knowledge of good and evil and so forth. which which is maybe a bit of a stretch, but but still I like the argument. If we just had one of those three guards in the garden, there wouldn't have been a fall right, yeah! The fences order, and and in the opposite of order chaos right so maybe we should take a quick break, and then we come back. We can explore.

"When. I updated my calendar for April. It was stark white. They're not a color on it. Because nobody was going anywhere looked at my oldest. He was in the kitchen. Wasn't he at the time She's a she's finishing her junior In college and I said Katie. This is most depressing calendar. I've ever seen and she said mom. We should look up all those random national holidays and put one on every day and I was like. Oh totally I said. And we'll take a picture and they have a whole series of stay at Home Holiday. So yes every day this month We have found a little something to celebrate and we have posted a picture today. April twenty four. Th is national pigs in a blanket day so after my height as made in a blanket for me and the kids love pigs in a blanket day. But there's there's actually a national holiday for every single day all we had you know what most days we actually had choices to make believe it or not. I'm not sure I'm not sure how I feel about that. Yeah it's ridiculous it'd be perfectly honest it's ridiculous but it's been a little something fun for us to look forward to and what's cracking me up as I've had a number of my friends like if I don't text vita post something You know before a certain time of the day I'll have Some friends will tech looking for your State Home Holidays Post. It's always makes me smile and I feel like I gotta keep it going. Do you think that something? You can sustain all year. Oh Gosh no I'm really. I actually wasn't hope I didn't WanNa do it. Past April I've had people ask me if I would keep doing it that. Maybe I'll keep doing it until the stay at home. Order is lifted. Both my Gosh I. I feel like maybe. That's already an instagram account. That maybe does that everyday already. Yeah somebody somewhere. I'm sure it could be. Yeah let's talk about so also in your instagram on occasion. There's some stuff in there Cooking Yeah Oh yeah you make your own Pasta. Just pretty incredible. I do make my own Pasta Yeah so I've got some Italian risk my mom's Parents came over on the boat to the peak though actually wasn't on my big literally over on the boat and I when I was growing up one of my jobs every week was to go to my great aunt. Mary House and Clean Her house and basically keep her company And she taught me how to speak Italian of which I don't remember a single word badly Though she has taught me how to cook so I do remember that And they do. I make my own sauce from scratch and make no scratch I'm pretty brave in the kitchen so I will try just about anything And and Yeah. I like to think that During this whole stay at home my family is still eating. Pretty well so What's your favorite dish? Oh that's a very good question. it definitely. GonNa be in the Italian line of things. It might be making grilled pizza. I make my own from scratch at the door. The sauce So yeah I really like that. And then I've got a My aunt called it Noodles Romano. I've got a pasta dish with basically a cream Based off that I'll make with seafood. That's always that they hit around here as well sounds delicious. I don't I don't know how to make any just now getting into the cooking Thing so I knew occasionally I'll ask you something and you give me so much information and it feels very overwhelming and you go simple. It's easy one step at a time. Chris it's just like anything else one time and our customers by so I WANNA ask you. Do you have favorite Member Gosh there's a I mean there's there's always a ton of memory Some of them are Of the after hours variety Maybe it'd be some explaining Seattle's that happened. They won't name any names. Caffeine might have happened there and cost to sit down. I will there have been. Oh Yeah you might as you might have been. Yeah Gosh but I. It's funny I mean I eat meeting has its own Energy at its and its own style and I love going to different hosts and getting to see different campuses and different work environments and you know some of them certainly stick out as being pretty amazing places to get to visit I feel like macy's campus is probably If not at the top of my list certainly towards the top of my list that campus. It's amazing. There's a place that's like to be able to go work out at before we have our meeting. Yeah no kidding the Kevin Yeah Yeah. They can't is beautiful but even like You know just even the different campuses that are that are downtown or the different areas of places that we that we get to be and the communities that we get to see experience. You know one of the things. I really liked it. We started doing last year. Is Our our care initiative Which because again like I said I love to travel. I like to get to different areas in different places and the fact that And even idea inspired by you and the fact that we get to go to these communities now we get to do some community service. While we're there I think it's been great you know like when you're in DC UM last fall and we're literally two blocks from the Capitol building so we're right in the heart of you know everything I got to go work out on The National Mall every morning that we were there and yet we walked less than ten minutes in the other direction and we were in that historic Homeless shelter and that one yeah Oh Gosh it was a man's been shelter for minute reservoir? It was yeah is it mentioned a bit remember. I think they said it started in the civil war And we We turn the beds. We there's something like three hundred some odd that's a night For folks in that shelter and we were able to sort of flip those. Yeah Yeah we've got some pretty fun experiences like that. I always remember Working next Jerry and the food pantry in Chicago when he very probably sorted all the peanut butter true it was a lot of it was a lot of peanut butter but yeah. I really like those emissions That we get to do but I would have to say probably and you know certainly doesn't hurt that it was within the past year but probably I would say to my ten favorites Memories and were meeting experiences. would have to be our meeting that we got to do an Orlando That was a lot of fun. It was fun that our second night dinner. We handed everybody Gift Card and let loose at epcot to eat around the world as they as they will And I that night I can with any anybody who listening knows. Roger Coker wasn't remember at the time. Great Big Guy. He kind of looks like a really tall Santa Claus. I think it does. He's going hard just like Santa. That's for sure sure.

It's because of the people because the people involved in career crossroads care so much about the community that they want to do things like hosted dinner redwood forest for people that wasn't that was any sort of magic that we pulled off that was because we have a community of people that genuinely care about each other and if there's one thing I can say is like an overwhelming memory for me.

"barb" Discussed on Daily Sales Tips
"You're listening to the daily sales tips podcast. And I'm your host Scott Ingram today. We're celebrating International Women's Day. And hopefully, you've been enjoying the amazing women in sales. We've been featuring all week long, highlighting barb GIO Manco and the work. She's done today was an absolute no brainer. And I'll tell you. Why barb heads up social centered selling and is the founder of the women in sales hub online community. Her mission is to ignite sales transformation and her book. The new handshake sales meets social media was the first book written about social selling and the need for sellers to adapt to a modern buyer who expects more an outspoken advocate for women in sales. Barb created and hosts the conversations with women and sales podcast, the only one of its kind dedicated to becoming the best resource in the world for female sales professionals in a word. She's pretty dang amazing. But I'll let you hear that for yourself. All right. Let's get to the sales tip message, really matters. And if you want to know, why prospects, ignore you. Well, I'm gonna tell you this is one area. I believe that if sellers focus more attention on getting this, right? You would have a lot more success reaching your targeted prospects. Because you know, what that's the number one complaint. I hear from sales people actually is that they struggle to get their targeted prospects to respond to them. And there is a reason for that. Your message matters today more than it ever has the struggle doesn't have to be real. It's not how you are trying to engage your prospects. Whether it's Email the phone Lincoln in mail could be your newsletter. It's what you say in your message. If you insist on doing what you've always done, the struggle is gonna feel like a very painful reality for you. What you need to understand is that thousands upon thousands of emails or flooding in boxes of people that you and other sales people are approaching every day every week every month. Every quarter every year. It happens the same with phone calls, and why is that happening likely? Your sales leader has a KPI that says you need to make x number of phone calls and send X number of emails. So that's what you do you. Make the calls send the emails often sacrificing quality at the expense of quantity to hit that goal. I talked to hundreds of decision makers in companies all over the world. And they all tell me the same thing they receive hundreds and hundreds of emails and phone calls from strangers with something to sell seriously. Is it any wonder nobody picks up the phone or response to any of the voice mails or emails? But they might if and they say they would if you make the message about them. So personalization scale is something that's talked. A lot about personalization is not saying something nice and enrolling into the same old sales pitch. Here are few of my personalization tips breach industry that you serve determined one two three main challenges that industry. Is facing for each company inside that industry that you are targeting. Look to see what one two three trends UC on the horizon are that targeted decision makers, maybe don't know about or should know about or do know about and don't know what to do next free decision making role. You're looking for insights that you can lead with to demonstrate in that first interaction that, you know, a little bit about the buyer and their business, and that you are the rep who can really bring some value to the table you need to ditch. The pitch buyers are interested in talking to sellers who can help solve business problems. They can't solve on their own initially. They don't care about the product features or have time for your product demo. They need to know that you can bring some business value to the table. That's the kind of approach that leads the buyer say, yes. To a meeting with you.
