"And bring you the very latest developments. Meantime, new developments of the death of Capitol police officer during the riots in January. The FBI says they've identified a possible suspect that may have had something to do with the death of Officer Brian Sick, Nick. They haven't released the name of that person yet. The FBI says it has video of persons spraying sick Nick and others with bear spray sick. Nick died from unknown injuries the day after possibly a stroke. We do know he wasn't hit in the head with a fire extinguisher, which was initially reported. It's unclear what if any, charges may be filed. Developing now, state senators introduced a bill that would reinstate drug possession laws here in our state. Yesterday, we told you, a state Supreme Court judge ruled the current law as unconstitutional, and that allowed people to have illegal drugs without the intent to sell and puts prior convictions in jeopardy. Currently, right now, you could have controlled substances and not get arrested. It's kinda crazy, so I know that Several states have gone through this very problem before and now it's our turn and we want to fix it right away. Even if this new bill goes through, and it's signed into law by the governor, attorneys could still argue their clients were arrested or convicted on the law that was found unconstitutional..

WIRED Senior Correspondent Adam Rogers Talks about the Wild Tech Built into Perseverance
"So adam. Let's start with a couple of notable things about this rover one. It's collecting and to you. Just wrote a story on wired dot com this week about the cameras on perseverance and how they actually perceive imagery much differently than we do. Tell us about this. And why this is significant for this mission will. there's something almost philosophical. You have to address if you're going to send not people to explore another planet but robots which is you're trying to acquire like sensory information and some of that some of that can be quantified can be sent back as data. You know the numbers for certain for certain analyses that you can send an instrument to do and i. I can talk about some of that but some of it. Is you want to send a robot that can look at stuff that can hear stuff in this case they can sense this world. And then that that information through the sensory organs the mechanical sensor organs the technology. That you send the microphones and the cameras and the sensors instruments and then it has to get home has to get back to us somehow. Us not wired reporters but jet propulsion laboratory and then the whole vast team of humans who process all of that through their own machinery and then it becomes something that they can that they can look at. Its this this. Arc of how data becomes information and then becomes knowledge so we humans send these robots to mars to some extent to learn how to send better robots to mars a lot of the instruments on perseverance. That's the rover that's there now are versions of instruments that went up on other missions and now they kind of the scientists that jpl and are all these universities. Nasa know how to make them work to do more what they wanna do which is to look at their surroundings in ways that that we humans would would. Would i be able to identify easily as looking at stuff to to see things in the colors that human is also see we were standing there and also to look at them multispectral hyperspace literally and other parts of the electric spectrum that human i wouldn't perceive but the eyes of this rover is in scare quotes that i'm making on a on a screen even though this audio medium so that's not helpful at all. The eyes of this rover can see into the little bit into the ultraviolet partway into the infrared. And and also can see x-rays and have an are using a laser project light outward to obliterate some bits of rock. And see what what happens when you do it. And to listen with microphones that that might be more sensitive than human ear. Then all of those things get get reduced transformed or changed in some way into meaningful knowledge so that we can understand more about what what's on this other planet where humans have never been but humans have sent a lot of our stuff. You're saying that each brand has gone up tomorrow. At least the ones that we have had progressively better technology on them with each version. And i think it's kind of interesting that this rover that just went up now. Perseverance is essentially the first rover of the iphone era. Curiosity launched in two thousand eleven and it was designed for a period of five or six seven years before that so the imaging technology on it is very representational of like that time in imaging technology the imaging technology that we have now and the imaging technology that we have on. Perseverance is pardon the pun astronomically better than the tech that we had ten years ago. I mean if you think about like how bad your instagram photos. Were in two thousand eleven. And how fantastic they can be now. You can see just like as far as mobile technology goes and just imaging sensors. The leap has been huge. That's a it's a really interesting observation. I think that's right. Although i will also say that like one of the one of the instruments that i wrote about is called the masked kim z. And so it's this. This binocular camera to cameras linked together left and right eye on top of the tower. That's on the rover so sits up a little. Bit high zina's presume because there was a mass cam on curiosity the z. Has zoom capability and it does a bunch of stuff. It's there to identify targets of interesting scientific potentially interesting scientific value and also to be able to look around and navigation and take pictures and do a whole bunch of other stuff. The the ccd the charge coupled device the optical sensor the to in mass are off the shelf kodak cds and they have the they have in front of them the bear pattern of pixels. The probably gonna get this wrong but like the red green blue. I think that that's that would be familiar. That if you if you could look into your phone you would see it. And then mass games does what. The experiment instrument is take advantage of some capabilities that our phone cameras. Don't really do to do much more. Because because the also can see into the infrared a bit and so if you put the right filters in front of them you can do even more science with them so there is some sense that we send up a camera. That would be the same camera that a lot of people have in their pockets right now sitting on their sitting on their desk. I can get sort of derivative about but there's something important i think in the pictures that are starting to come back already. That include parts of the rover itself and people will describe those as celsius as mars selfie camera taking pictures of itself and and nasa among all agencies is very very good at At its own promotional work saying like. Here's the thing. Here's the picture of the thing we're doing. There are pictures. There's video of the landing which was dramatic but also like the video of the landing. Is there to video of the landing has engineering value but also publicity value. But but i think the calling it. A selfie also includes the recognition of the the. It's not personal because of course it's not a person of the machine hood of the individuality of the humanness of the technology that that we sent that has to do a thing there. That's doing technological work and and seeing mars through a kind of filter that's akin to but slightly different than the filters that if mike if you took that billionaire ticket up tomorrow how you would see through the visor of your of your back suit
Independent Sports Consultant Leon Mann Discusses Racism in Soccer
"So how you take it knowing that this has been something. You've been working on campaigning for ages. Now i mean vegetables. Thank you for me on can share some thoughts and views. It's great to be with both of you You know. I'm big fans of both your work. It's a real honor to be on here but It does what happened last summer. You know it was the realization of the problems that we've been talking about for many many years decades you know in. Shuckers dykes wallet. Back in terms of is what. Show racism. The red card myself. I've been working with campaign. Kick racism out football now known as kick out and guns but this football blacklist together and the black to a major spill around journalism and these conversations have been ongoing around right out week kind of diversify our industry. How do we ensure we see black leaders in our industry and how do we change. Dynamic swiftly and those conversations were incredibly frustrating because that would be a win in the room but it would be a lack of action to follow them So as a result of that we kept on having lots of conversations with barre barre slow progress but what happens in the summer it the game to store to reflect an actually as a community. We'll stood together and said no this is this is not going to continue anymore We cannot sell people treated this way. And we're not going to have this going to stand for. I think the fact that we're ruled on lockdown at the time meant that people were very very focused on this issue and as a result of that It feels like with with moving forward in a in a much more positive direction. in terms of the actions. And i'm you know privy to With the chief executives of lee seung susceptible associations etc and it lonely be judged on the actions. Of course bofill am. I do say this with some kind of kool shen because of twenty years of working on this. But i feel like we're in a place where we can get some real progress made leon as as transformative as twenty twenty has been i. I wanna talk a little bit about the start of couponing of the blacklist. What was you spock. And why kind of given the social challenges of the The last two years you felt the need to do that email as as as you already mentioned it was in and i'm sure you recognize would have been in such a frustrating atmosphere to not. Yeah i mean th th the black this was was born out of you know wanting to do something when type response. I had control over so looking for the kick out. Racism out full. It was a campaign was fantastic. Transitioning into a journalist with the bbc where it was working as a presents when report was great for me as an individual also had freedom to kind of put some actions in place. So i could control and drive myself alongside with my community. So i was as a campaigner meetings with various black people but black people that my friends and family from the black community would never know so when they're talking to me about How did you get get a job in football. And leon how why. Why do we never see any black representation. I said well the dead as many but they are there. So i thought well how do we shine a light on these people to celebrate contribution but also show the next generation of young black men and women. Listen you wanna be a lawyer in football. You can do it because this person has done it. And they're working at this. You want to be working in a major department. You wanna be a doctor. You wanna do all these kinds of jobs. You can't do it because these people have come before you. They all the pioneers that we should be celebrating in a similar way to how we celebrate a pioneering back players in every single position. We should celebrate these people as a way of opening the due to the next generation. Now of course that only works if that comes together with opportunity. Because i can go into community show about look you gamble Look here baltimat- live people arrive adult. It doesn't open Then they'll just turn around and disappearance of industries and just kind of have a relationship with football They will you on the tv or go to gags. So that's the bit. I think we need to work on you. Know in terms of where are the opportunities you know how much what the game is doing to attract retain and develop people bring a different diversity to the game and also not to see as as a charitable act.

Fallout of Texas winter blast
"Good evening. Thank you for joining us. The governor of sexist apologizing and promising answers after a deadly winter storm the deep freeze. Just the start of an ongoing nightmare for residents now. Struggling with shattered pipes in skyrocketing energy. Bill here's abc's tripled. I can't imagine what it's like for you to see it like this is terrible. I've never thinking house. This brianna bolden tells me she could smell the soap rotting wood from outside the front door of her grandmother's house before walking into this is pictures and the memories. They captured all underwater. And this is actually my big lama right here. This is all and that's the past those wife for half a century. Her grandparents filled this home with children and grandchildren home cooked meals. Tiny reminders of a family growing together is a lot of memories at this house. But now this house like so many in texas has been gutted. Helplessly flooded by first hypes last week's historic winter storm on your couch look. The damage is just a fraction of the devastation. in texas. that killed thirty. Two people will take months or years and billions of dollars to clean up. So how did it go so wrong so quickly. Texas has more than enough generating capacity to handle itself. It was just the state of affairs of that equipment and the state of affairs of the management of that equipment. The causes from texas is the only state in the continental us with an independent grid meaning. It does not connect to any other states power source. When that merciless winter weather hid in one of the warmest regions of the country. People crank up their heaters and the energy demand surged when that system shut down. There was nowhere to turn for power. There is no place for the texas grid to go there. Couple small lines extension cords to the east in the west. But that's not enough really to to pick up. A forty percent drop in texas generation and the result was more than three million texas residents in the dark and cold at one point leading many to take drastic measures for running dangerously low on one. So now what we've been doing. All day is actually coming outside getting snow putting it are pods and heaving on our propane grill. Then hypes began to freeze and burst shutting down water treatment plants across the state inning. Almost fifteen million texans would have to toil their water of four. It was safe to drink daily block water. We don't even have the electric reliability council of texas or bur. Kat had long been warned. Its infrastructure was vulnerable to freezing temperatures the state legislature held hearings on this exact issue in twenty eleven. The last time the state experienced major freeze there were numerous hearings hundreds of pages of recommendations but they were all made voluntarily. Nobody actually change the incentives so that the generators would have a financial reason food to weather. Is this week. Several urquhot born members resigned in the wake of this disaster today in virtual urquhot board of directors meeting. The chairwoman acknowledged the pain and suffering of texans her resignation effective after the meeting ended. All of our hearts go out to all of you with head to go without electricity. Heat water not attending and food during frigid temperatures and continue to face the tragic consequences in some cases. The loss of a loved one state leaders have promised an investigation into urquhot handling of the crisis and members of both parties and the governor of rowing to make sure texans are on the hook for those astronomical electric bills at a time when essential services were needed. The most the system broke. You deserve answers. You will get those answers but people brianna bolden are in need of far more immediate solutions. She's facing mounting hardships. Having recently lost her father and grandfather. It sounds like your grandmother doesn't have home insurance right now. She don't she couldn't afford it anymore. Every generation been through this. Is papa really worked hard for this. I'm sorry statewide. There is so much damage from burst. Pipes plumbers can't keep up see the water. We have another one right here. Everardo omega of a plumbing. In houston says he's crews have been working around the clock just as bad. I mean there's necas mad and they're receiving more calls than they can answer this heartbreaking the tell somebody. uk make we broke down here. Twenty five hours plummer andrew mitchell in his family driving all the way from new jersey with a car full of equipment in arts in short supply here for just going to see what we can do to help out texas residents and also converging in texas to help out the cajun navy civilian volunteers known for using their big trucks. Kamal boats for rescues during major storms like hurricane harvey in twenty seventeen. We talked with a lot of people around here who've been they were impacted by hurricane harvey. I dealing with this. A lot of people think that this is worse than a hurricane's coming in we have more. We know what's going to happen with this disaster. We did not know what was coming. Community was not prepared. No one knew what was coming riley at this is marin mckim. She spent the last decade doing aid work in africa. When disaster struck home she was one of the first on the front lines. The cajun navy has gotten quite good quickly setting up distribution sites like this one but with so many people impacted. What's perhaps most useful is their platform and their connections. Cajun navy crowd sources disasters and cajun navias known so once we find the need we start using the social media platform and we put the word out there and people want to help on this day. They're delivering to katy texas home to just over twenty thousand with some areas still under a boil. Water notice

"We are excited to have patrick lane today. Patrick is the director of products at compton. And we've done a few webinars with him in the past he always does a great job providing us updates on come tears certifications so excited to have you back patrick A little bit about his background. He directs the it workforce skills certifications come to you including security plus pen test plus c y plus and casper plus he assisted the us national cyber security alliance also known as the ncsa to create the lockdown. You're logging campaign to promote multi factor. Authentication nationwide us also implemented a wide variety of it projects including an internet and help desk for eleven thousand end users. Patrick is an armed forces. Communications electronics association lifetime member born and raised on us military bases and has authored and co authored multiple books including hack proofing lennox a guide to open source security so a fantastic guests with us today. I'm excited to pass it off to patrick here in just a moment after we review the agenda so today we will touch on what is security plus Patrick talk about the baseline cybersecurity skills. The job roles and growth indicators. We'll talk about the differences between s wise zero six zero one versus the five. Oh one and kind of some of the updates. There will talk about the exam details and then as mentioned i will pass it off to patrick for questions. So feel free to submit those questions using the qna panel At anytime so with that I'm going to go ahead and give give the control over to patrick here to get us started. Thank you everyone. My name is patrick lane. And as thank you for introducing me. I'm the product manager for competition cybersecurity certifications as a director. I work a lot with the industry and within comp tia in to ensure that our exams are meeting the needs of the industry security plus as one of our largest certifications of all comp. Tia in fact. It's our number one certification and so one of the reasons why people are coming to security plus is because of the skills that it offers and the fact that employers are hiring people who have security plus social security plus will help you get a job in it and cybersecurity so when we look at the certification we have to remember that security plus as an entry level certification exam it was released in two thousand two and it's updated every three years it assesses the baseline or core technical skills required to secure networks software hardware devices essentially it teaches you the basics to securing anything that's attached to a network or the internet. It's a broad range of cybersecurity skills as you can imagine. A any skills are used for high performance on the job so people are coming to take security plus because it proves that they can do the job and employers will know that they could get the job done so the it certification in general is very valuable also security plus appears nearly ten percent of all job ads in the united states and right now sixteen percent of the entire workforce has security plus and we have millions of people who have taken our commttiee exams around the globe. In the last three years. There have been a lot of changes in cybersecurity. Probably all aware of the industry continues to grow their continued to be more jobs available. There continued to be not enough people to fill those jobs and in fact in some cases employers are looking to icy certifications employers are looking to it certifications in lieu of a college degree. Four jobs. That are hard to hire for. They would rather hire someone with the bachelor degree and assert if they could but in this day and age or enough phenomenal time of human history.
Could a Jack Eichel Trade Land Him With the Boston Bruins?
"You want to make a safe bet how about you bet every year around this point of the Season where Jack eichel is unhappy with the situation in Buffalo there every year. It's the annual Jack. Eichel is sick of Buffalo story, but probably won't actually get traded. Maybe this is finally the years but Buffalo continues to lose which I don't know why this is a surprise to him at least like just cuz my God what Taylor home exactly like to be I don't know maybe I guess when you're in that moment, you know when you're on that team you think wow, we just got so much better. But in reality you just got a better scoring Winger on one line. Like it's this isn't the NBA where like you acquire a player of Taylor Hall is Cal log. The NBA and it's like why we are a much better team in hockey. It is four lines and you obviously one score is not going to transform whole team. So Jack eichel is reportedly not super pleased with the losing an awful. Oh, I don't blame him that miss that situation looks miserable. So every time this happens the Jack eichel to the Boston Bruins rumors always like to get straightened up baby back wheels turning on that and I I am so here so here for the even though this like will never happen. There's a less than 2% chance. I'll give it a little chance. But but less than 2% chance this ever could actually happen equal to the Bruins, but you you astutely tweeted out Wednesday morning. Give me your best trade package for Jack eichel Chicago which prompted people to give off their best trade packages. Ron Jackson office a lot of compelling offers. I mean hitmon law, this is my favorite go figure Boston gets or Buffalo gets the Evan marinoff skier F boss gets Jacqueline Connor McDavid, and I said, I think the Prof gets more than just McDavid Michael. I think you might get puter off in there too. Well, here's the thing too. I mean Buffalo is in such disorder and disarray that you need not stabilizing presence there someone that's going to bring Authority and stop the shenanigans. So who better than that having that or not graph to correct? What's been going wrong in Buffalo for decades now, you gotta lay down long. That's what he's going to do. Right right down right now. It's a it's a character thing more than talent and that's the team needs so I continually yeah exactly they need a leader. But so that was a great one quart low lands a little does. He know that Evan and Connor are package deal. So that's a no deal in my books. That's fair. That's that's that's a good point. That's always going to send me the Buffalo wage. Thanks, Buffalo Winnipeg or Edmonton. I'm out on

China court orders man to pay wife for housework
"A Chinese man has been ordered to compensate his wife for the housework she did during their marriage. The ruling by the court in Beijing is the first of its kind following the introduction of a new marriage law in China that speak to Carrie Allen. She's the BBC's China media analyst. Carry that start by getting you to tell us a little bit about the law. And why was introduced was it because there was a demand for a change in the law? This is what's known as China's civil code, and it was introduced at the beginning of the year on it included a number of things, but very much said that now a spouse is entitled to seek compensation in a divorce if he or she bears more responsibilities in child raising or caring for elderly relatives, So it is meant to be a kind of equal rights. Law that looks at when people go through divorce discourages them from doing so by making sure that they get fair settlement. So tell us tell us about the ruling in this particular instance, because it's clearly pretty groundbreaking. It is. Yes, this woman whose surname is Wang, she has been successful in she requested financial compensation from her husband or which she was able to do so under this new law. She said that her husband had not shouldered any housework or childcare responsibilities during their five year marriage on she's been she's won the case she's received 50,000 U. N. For five years of unpaid labor. That's roughly around 7700 U. S
Magnets, The Hidden Objects Powering Your Life
"Okay jeff brumfield. Where does our journey into the world of magnetism begin. It begins with a call to carlos. And a guy named tim murphy. They both work at the national high magnetic field laboratory in tallahassee florida. Normally you know. I do research and i learn about things but this time i just i just brought some bar magnets thought i would let you. That's all we do here so they just you know they're bigger and they give us money for it so expensive too. Yeah and they're painted. We paint them. They're so ready for this interview. They were born ready for this interview. These folks work with magnets all day long. Carlos heads the k. Twelve education programs for the lab. Tim is a physicist there. And like carlos was saying earlier they really feel like magnets need respect. I guarantee you that whatever direction you're looking right now unless you're in the wilderness. Right now there's probably a magnet in your line of sight and you just don't know it well and if you're you're in the wilderness you're standing on the biggest magnet that we have which is the earth the earth is a giant magnet with a pole and the south pole and where that magnetism comes from kind of complicated so for today. We're just going to stick to smaller baghdad's like the ones we use in our daily lives. Jeff i'll be honest. I don't really know what makes a magnetic field magnetic field. So how would you describe that which is kind of fascinating. Because you've turned yourself. Into the shortwave fisk there's gaps in my knowledge the only god what is a magnetic field exactly well so magnetic fields like i just said you know based on the field. Actually they're often said to north and the south pole and right opposite poles attract and light poles repel. So magnets can pull each other together. Push each other part in actually magnetism itself is half of fundamental force a called electromagnetism which also includes electric fields. But what i think is really fascinating is aside from gravity. Magnets are really the only fundamental force that we can just experience an encounter on a regular basis right and we can kind of see this magnetism action when we're playing around with magnets and they stick to certain metals right. Yeah yeah i mean the whole metal magnet thing is kinda complicated carlos. Tell you that everybody comes up. I see on. Tv shows all the time even the education tv shows. They say magnets metal. And i'm like no you got it wrong again. There's only three medals of her naturally magnetic iron nickel and cobalt. And what carlos means there is that there are only three medals that be permanent magnets that hold their magnetism forever and never other metals can stick to magnets but then there are a lot of medals. They can't so we just moved to. A new house has a stainless steel fridge. And guess what like all our fridge. Magnets don't work on this fridge anymore. so what makes them materials magnetic and others not so much well it actually all has to do with electrons. Oh our friends the electrons. Of course these are. The negatively charged particles in adams and when they flow they create electricity. That's right and whenever electrons move in in particular when they spin around something they generate a magnetic field as well as an electric field so magnetic fields have to do with spinning electrons exactly so the electrons are spinning around the atom and that makes like a little magnetic field but then in a permanent magnet. What happens is all. The atoms are facing the same direction. Imagine all these atoms lined up in a row and they kinda wanna do what their next neighbor is doing. So if their neighbor is pointed up right there magnetic moment is up than the one next to him says. Hey up is the the direction so they go up as well. So now you end up with a macroscopic magnetic field because all of these atoms are kind of lined up with their magnetic moments so all of these atoms facing the same direction is what creates one. Big magnet exactly. That's how permanent magnets work like the magnet. Cystic to your fridge. All the atoms in that baghdad are lined up in the same way and they make this big magnetic field that polls the magnet against your fridge and keeps it there. But then there's another kind of magnet and tim the guy you just heard there he actually works with this one. It's called an electromagnet for electro magnets. We actually don't care about the spin of the electron what we care about is the
Seeking Refuge On The Open Road
"When we reached bob wells. He was camped out of the grid in his white. Gmc savannah van in the middle of the california desert. Some twenty five years into his experiment in mobile living. How did this whole journey start for you. What was your life like before you discovered this this lifestyle while i was either very very lucky or very unlucky depending on your point of view it was the winter of one thousand nine hundred five. Bob was living in anchorage alaska where he'd worked for over two decades in a union job at safeway saint job. His father had worked until his retirement. At the time bob was going through a divorce and after alimony and child support payments. He says he was no longer making enough to clear his rent. He was desperate and that is when he noticed old beat up box banned for sale on the side of the road for fifteen hundred dollars and he decided he had to go for it. That was all the money. I had left in the bank. But i had to have a place to live and so i bought it and That night through a backpacker. Sleeping bag. Down and i began my van dwelling adventure in the winter and the cold van and i That first night. I cried myself to sleep. I literally cried myself to sleep. Or when you're going through a divorce you you cry yourself to sleep on a pretty regular basis ends but sure just of course greatly compounded here. I was homeless bomb living in a van on the streets. And how much lower can my life get. But bob done a lot of camping in his life and you had to make a small space cozy and after a few weeks eat figured out how to cook and stay warm deal to bed and cabinets used his gym membership to shower. Figured out how to make it sustainable. And the money. He was saving on rent. Meant he didn't feel like he was always on the knife's edge it slowly and subtly shifted from. I despise my life to. This isn't really that bad to hey. Every month i keep the money and put it in my pocket to. I kind of really really liked this. And that's the way it's been every sense. Was it difficult at all to kind of switch. Grand narratives about What trajectory you're supposed to take as a productive member of the economy absolutely it was a traumatic transition you know. We are trained from birth to death. Our purpose in life is to be good productive citizens and so it made me question everything i had done. Exactly what society and told me to do. I'd gotten a job. I wanna house. We'd had kids. I was following the american dream to the best of my skill level and ability. As i could and then i was forced into living what society told me was the life of total failure homeless in the van and for the first time in my life i was happy well that raises a lot of existential questions and when i looked around at all the people i work with work eat sleep. Working sleep work. Eat sleep. I said what society told me it was not true. I've finally found a way. That's happy for me. Let me try to understand that. My life and for the life of others a few years later bob had saved up enough to quit his job at safeway and by supplementing his union pension with seasonal stints as a campground host. He was eventually able to take to the road as a full-time nomad in two thousand five about a decade. After he moved into the van. Bob decided to pay forward. Some of the techniques developed the started a website called cheap. Rv living the serve as a kind of resource for other people interested or in many cases forced to move into a vehicle. I started the sole intent of letting people know there wasn't on alternative. You didn't have to live under the tyranny of the marketplace and the way to do that was to eliminate your biggest cost in life. Which is your housing with cheaply. Live frugally and then you can live well for a long time the site just kinda mosey too long picking up you know few page views here and there in two thousand eight happened. Bob says in the wake of the financial crisis. He was inundated with desperate messages. Have lost my job. I we moved in with my family now. My family is lost their job. Now we're all losing our own. What are we going to do. And that was the question. I got over and over and over again. Even after the economic recovery started to pick up the number of inquiries and page views and people in the community continued to grow. Fueled partly by the rise of social media. Bob started his cheap. Rv living youtube channel in two thousand sixteen and has since become just one of many popular nomad influencers but unlike a lot of the glossier more glamorous content associated with the hashtag van live crowd. Bob's videos are all about helping people struggling to keep their head above water financially and they're filled with the nitty gritty details of living behind the wheel. Today we're gonna talk about heat today. We're gonna talk about taking showers. The topic of today is poop. You can cut your behinds. Not one of them. You want that thing to be clean all the time. Bob also does these little interview profiles of people living in different kinds of vehicles cars to trucks to buses. Welcome back fellow nomads. Today we're going. Meet a new friend of mine. Joe sale load everyone relax. They're really out. There doesn't look like there's a bunch of people out there. Yeah thank you that video for the record. Two point five million views and counting. Bob says his videos have become so popular that he's now making more money than ever before. I think eventually the second break but it gets great reviews on amazon which is why i'm recommending ads in affiliate marketing. Help him bring in over one hundred fifty thousand dollars a year. Bob makes enough to have two full time assistants helping him with his work and because he says he never plans to live in a house again. He makes a very healthy profit. I'm make much more money than i ever thought. I could possibly make in my life. And i live in a van. My expenses are pretty darn low with that extra money. Bob started a nonprofit homes on wheels alliance to support people transitioning into living in their vehicles. They've started to outfit and give vance to people in dire need of a new vehicle. And bob says he saving up to buy a plot of land for an in person resource center. It isn't clear how many people are living on the road at this point. But in two thousand ten when bob started this annual gathering van and car dwellers in the arizona desert called rubber tramp rendezvous it had a few dozen attendees by two thousand and nineteen. They had an estimated ten thousand people show up and as a central node in this growing community. Bob has had a kind of front row seat to the massive disruptions of the past decade. And he's watched as certain demographics have borne the brunt of those changes. It's a surprisingly large female. Contingent older women in their sixties and seventies. When they were girls they were told get married. Stay home raise a family and so they never go up so sturdy and then now they're living on five hundred to eight hundred dollars a month so skirt and he cannot live in this country on five hundred two thousand a month so sturdy and live in house and you just can't do it and so they all desperately needed the solution as well and i told them all. If you move into your plan you can live reasonably well on that. You won't be rich but you won't eating dog food and there's hope bob says he has seen an uptick in views and inquiries about van dwelling over the last year. But so far he says the stimulus checks and the nationwide moratorium on evictions have slowed. The number of new nomads. Still he says as the baby boomers continue to age into social security and as the effects of climate change intensify bob expects the movement towards van life to surge and he sees it is his mission to try to help however he can. I've got a string of lifeboats. And i want to get as many as i can into the lifeboat and i think the hammer blow of two thousand eight really put a crack in people's confidence and i think when you combine that with this cheers a natural disasters and the epidemic. I think people are just going to be abandoning the american dream in droves. That's all i'm trying to do is get people out
A Childhood on the Farm
"So let's jump off from one. Animal will benefit the other to talk about the family so moving to hear you describe this because it reminds me of students taking an environmental science class. And then there's the quiz lit and the flash cards and the phrase kurban sequestered and drew are false. This is learning by doing. And it's absolutely the way. Children learn best using all five senses in the three dimensional world. And you also mentioned joan about the changing of seasons and how the children are accustomed to that and learn the rhythm of that so one animal benefiting the other in your particular described to me that challenges and reward of. Let's start with. Sasha how does she benefit and tax and challenged the rest of the system right. Well i would say. Sasha is our observer and alert system for the families. she's really in tune when somebody's hurt or sick because she's always hyper focused on anything being out of balance essentially if she notices as a change to our rhythm change to our habits. She's the first to say. Why are we doing this or what's wrong about the situation. It's not what we're used to doing. The same goes for on the farm. She's the first one to come running in and say there's an injured goat. There is an injured goat coming into the house and she gets to say that sentence mom. There's an injured goat or or such and such goethe's in heat. We better breed them right now. Oh yes and how does she know about such and such goat well. She's been raised with them since she was born and so she knows their behavior. She knows all of them and their personalities and when they're acting different and with her their heat cycles she's aware that the fall is when they go into heat and she knows that they flagged their tails when they're ready flag their tail. They flagged their tails. Does it mean wave of back and forth her yup and she's smitten with a particular goat. Yes she has. A favourite goat considers it her child the goats name panda and it's an alpine dairy goat. That's funny yup. it's black and white. There is a year where we had a lot of black and white dulling so and they decided to name them all black and white name so there is like orca. Oreo and panda was one of them. Yeah so this is so much fun. This is someone because this is children's imagination applied to a practical purpose because those goats need names. You need to be able to distinguish them when she comes and says that panda is in heat. It's important for you to be able to picture which goat. She's talking about absolutely. She is alert when she comes in with the news on the continuum of excited and enthusiastic veg ing on alarm more panic. What's the tone. I would say it's equally both. I would say that to once she experiences says sees this she comes around in and it's like frantic furious. This is very important. You have to listen to me. So and so is doing this that or the other or so and so's injured and it's just i think it's giddiness that she is able to tell us that. And it's also that she is experiencing what's going on so she is. She's getting both those things going on in her brain at same
The Floor, not the Ceiling: The Supreme Court in 2021
"Welcome back background boroughs. Ashanti here and we have another episode for today. I'm so excited to talk to. Bagnoli gilmore the state media campaigns director for planned parenthood federation of america onion. How're you doing today and doing. Well thank you so much for having me very excited to. Have you very excited to talk about the important work that you do today at planned. Parenthood really diving into the attacks that we've been seeing on reproductive justice reproductive freedom abortion rights and educating our listeners on how they can help fight back before we dive in intrude fashion. We have to know what brought you to this work awesome. Well i am a huge fan of your work and this podcast. I'm really excited to be here a little bit about me. I am in asian american woman. Born and bred in white middle america foreign raised in kansas city missouri. Where i still live today doing this work before coming into reproductive rights work. I was a journalist for ten years. And i think my work is a reporter. Gave me a front row seat to the every day. Impact that policies have on our lives. I was a healthcare reporter and solve the direct line between what happens in our state legislatures. What happens in our city. Councils and how that impacts our daily lives in how we go about it. And in the midwest that also means a very white dominant culture that sets the tone and the conversation and passes policies in that lens and i spent ten years covering those issues and decided to transition into media work for an advocacy organization that i have long admired and loved for the work that we do at our health centers across the country though now i focused on state policies state fights as we call it here at planned. Parenthood and the intersection. Those policies have on our ability to access reproductive healthcare went you said about how white men dominate policy. It's so true. And i want us to talk about what. We're seeing happening at state houses across the country. Most our listeners. Know the bg is one thing that i do my full time. Job is on the president of merge we focus on recruiting and training democratic women to run for office and we've had a huge focus on state houses in making sure that we're getting democratic women in there. I love talking abou nevada. Colorado new mexico all of those states are majority women and their state houses due to emerge alums and we see the impact that women have on the policies that come out and in a lot of the houses though where unfortunately seeing policy that is not the best when it's coming to abortion access so only two months into twenty twenty one were seeing these attacks on reproductive freedom in state houses and this statistic is crazy more than one hundred bills have been introduced in state houses in the past few weeks that target abortion access. There are so many reasons why state legislators are important. But this is one of the main ones hang you tell us about some of the things that are happening. Yeah impact that number continues to grow today when we're talking. That number is up to more than one hundred and eighty anti-abortion bills that have been filed or are pending an in early february. And that's why all. Because i only saw that hundred number last week. Yep we've seen almost another hundred a week. Yup absolutely And over forty. Five percent of those bills are some form of an abortion ban. And so you know. I think we're sitting at a moment where we are staring at an immense amount of opportunity and hope and change because of new presidential administration because of pro reproductive healthcare majority in congress yet our state legislatures do not reflect this reality where policies are made. I believe it is twenty nine states right now where anti-abortion politicians hold majorities twenty nine states over half And we are seeing a targeted attack on reproductive freedom our ability to control our bodies in lives because again this is about power and control. This conversation is rooted in white supremacy and has nothing to do with the health and wellbeing of any person who needs access to health care with really clear about that because that is what you will hear these politicians wax on about right and they'll even coop racial justice movements to talk about you know black babies and abortion end it is all rooted in white supremacy and the real question that we need to answer is who gets power and control of our bodies and our lives and our future right it be the politician predominantly white men or should it be being able to control that and so these are the policies that are getting past at the state level. And they're not just. Abortion bans a lot of these. The majority of these bills are incremental restrictions. That make it harder. Particularly on people with low incomes women people of color emigrants to access reproductive healthcare basic healthcare birth control annual exams cancer screening and of course abortion.
Interview With Bradley Kam
"We have a returning gas brian. Cameo from unstoppable domains and brad. Thanks for joining great. Thanks for Awesome awesome. so we've had you on before for those that maybe missed it. You can go to the reimagine twenty twenty youtube channel Up reimagined twenty two brought cameron and it will populate they're interesting story good stuff there You know for free that. Take a peek out. That i'm having back again. So hopefully we can shed some new light and get some updates in and see what's going on but bradey know what i noticed from. The last discussion is With quite get your journey like into blockchain I've done countless interviews now over the last four months and it'd be It's interesting you know. Love to hear your side and you found out in the rational and how you got into blockchain shore. So i i heard about it from the wired article in two thousand and eleven the rise and fall bitcoin which a lot of people probably heard him read and i remember thinking. Oh this is cool. And that i remember tossing the magazine aside and then nothing about it again. For a couple of years i moved out to san francisco in end of two thousand twelve december. Two thousand twelve to work on marketing tech startup. Six years working on that. But when i moved to san francisco. I moved into this hacker. House called twenty mission Right in the center of the mission district is crazy place a day. After i got there they were shooting horror. Fill there Just to give you kind of an idea of like what the building looks like They didn't need to change the scenery. It was ready to go for the film So there was like a clown getting murdered or something like that right outside my right outside. My door They eventually built it up a little bit. Got a little bit nicer but it was basically. I started by a early bitcoin supporter and essentially everybody. There was some sort of Some sort of a bitcoin enthusiast. The second bitcoin exchange was launched in the basement of the building Trade ill second. Bitcoin exchange in the us. bunch of early meet ups were in the building. The talk was giving talks in or courtyard before theorem. Live was basically everybody that i met when i moved to. San francisco was crypto person. Maybe three weeks. After i got there read the white paper You know maybe rented another couple of times just that first week thought it was one of the most amazing things i've ever heard was a little skeptical about whether or not this could actually work implementation. Wise i'm not ankle so i of needed to trust might eleborate friends. Essentially that this was like real from a tech perspective. They convinced me that it was and reading about it and think about it. Ever since i was more seven years ago. So how is living about pat. I don t twenty mission. It's not there anymore. I don't think right though. There is a lot of phases so a lot of a lot of those early folks in a lotta. Those early crypto folks are have since moved on But it was it was. It was pretty wild in the back in the day. I mean they were doing doing five hundred person. Y- parties with multiple. Dj's going until six am and stuff like that A lot of meet ups. It was amazing. I met so many. Jimmy's metallic was so he's to my. Cto is what was in a hacker house. I don't think he was. I think he might have been twenty mission as well but there was another one. A nearby and metallic was pitching a theory at that time Which kind of blew. Everybody's mind when he was trying to sell tokens and obviously my cto. Now wish he would have awesome. Yeah yes i didn't actually. I didn't get to talk to patel. Bear but it i did a. I was taking this class collection. You in south bay. And i think twenty fifteen and batali gave a talk Talking about a theory. And what. I heard it. It sounded like the most convoluted confusing thing ever. Everybody was like why. What's gas wise there. Gas is that different than ease. The token like it was just so confusing hours. Like is this really. Is this really going to work. It just seems so So bazaars i i didn't i didn't immediately get it. I don't think i'm probably took me another year. After the thing was was live when i started seeing some apps and then finally once i could see apps i was like okay now i get it now. This is a decentralized platform for apps

"If you're a little bit embarrassed and you don't want you know look like a fool in front of your heroes like just keep going eventually. He's going to say yeah. Let's think about this. Let's consider it, but the day we got the lyrics sheet I was in Canada and I called Poo at. They were like Bob Dylan Google. Do you guys and he's in? And I just pictured Bob Dylan sitting on a tour. Typing into like an old typewriter access the Internet. and. I don't think. Did you believe me, I, I told you that. Tell a lot of stories. got. And he came to my office and in like an hour. We just like we just do like work at the desk. To at five hours. To. Thirty minutes. Seventeen minutes. Longer. My theory is longer tastes to do it, but it's not getting the sack you're trying. You're reaching in some. Flow happen naturally. But yet, thank God thank you. Bob, Dylan They care. The year? Years. We have. Guys listening that was exciting. It's the first time we've ever played the songs for anyone so. We Rehearse to actually we actually rehearsed. We're band. We're actually. I got one more Kinda. Hummel Brad for you and guilty pleasure question. What is it like to have the biggest Song Planet Right now? That's the CTO. Very extremely awkward because. This. Questions like this. You know it's okay I, love it, but I would have never thought in years in the million that one that I would have. I mean I've had hit. I've hit records in mind in my twenty two years, but just my biggest song. My career end justice is happening. Be Maturity. Latin so since little. Little strange little awkward when I'm grateful, and it is clearly it opened up doors for those is crossing over so now. No, you say come easy of other smash songs. Committee known it's. It's really like amazing to be part of it and I could say that my wife knows I wasn't really that excited to. Write anything in. Secret like when I don't care I. Really don't WanNa do something usually turns out to be really massive big. Turn like figure out ways how to turn off my feelings and not get my feelings hurt by out here and really mean it, but came from me, not carrying. It's amazing to be a part of that record. Amazing to be part of history I'm really extremely grateful and I. Thank God for Justin in. The. Play and you lose A. Version. Band. So yeah that. Aruna Banjo live from Winston House. He's really build this amazing community on the west side of music, and it was just so cool. To debut our music there, because to be honest as they music creator in an entrepreneur. I live between several worlds. I WanNa build things I want to make things that make money but I also my heart has always been in the live space and I believe that the world of podcasting is going to experience this live boom where people want to hear unique stories unique music in a way that they haven't before in a world where everything is available, twenty, four seven on your phone and everyone's experience are becoming more and more homogenized. This was something different I mean. Maybe when we were starting at I thought this would go over a lot of people's heads, but clearly. To the passionate few who have been following our story, our music, the podcast, and for all the folks that Iheart who have supported it and the brands that have been part of it, I just wanted to say. Thank you to everyone for tuning in the season and I'm. So glad that you were able to discover the story and the album itself is going to be coming out as a bonus package where it's all the eight songs from the episodes plus bonus Zach Brown remix of. Can you hear me now plus? New Beginnings which is a Remix of what we've done for roots, the miniseries, which was one of the first songs Pu, and I ever did, but we have remixed it and put it out for this album. Plus the three songs, you just heard which are live from Winston House very proud of the set of material. We've created and I think people will be really excited and surprised to see what comes next as we. Promote the binge experience of getting people into not only the podcast and re listening or listening to the these episodes for the first time who knows people might listen to music and discover the podcast or the other way around, but the full binge experience of the podcast is available now and Iheart. The record is coming out shortly thereafter with all the songs I just mentioned, plus we are hoping to continue to tell more stories whether it's in the form of books audiobooks, a TV series animation Barron Banjo for for me. This amazing world that I. AM lucky enough to have created alongside poo. Bear Dennis Quaid t-bone Burnett. Bob Dylan and all the amazing writers who worked on season, one Bill Flanagan. Tom Piazza. Jimmy Jelonek and several of the episodes that I wrote alongside Nick, his lotto from detective, just one of the shout, every single person including all the jingle punks helped produce this thing, and it's been an exciting ride, so thank you for everybody who was part of Barrena a Banjo season one.

"Of choice alongside drums and those simple elements almost became this lo fi modern urban mishmash that. I couldn't quite put my finger on but the more we kept on making music for other people. The more I realized that we should be continuing to make music for ourselves several months into slanting landing all of these projects. Every time we would have one we'd record one song for client and one song for us one song for a client one song for us next thing. I know I have six. Or seven songs. Meet t-bone Burnett and start playing him some of this music and he says this is great. We should make a whole album and at which point it validated. What I thought in my mind that Pooh bear is amazing voice but also a true inroad to the past of music end the present and the future. He is all of those things but he's already told his present music and his future music with all of his amazing pop collaborations with every artist imaginable. But we've never seen what who bear. Sounds like when you strip away all of the modern production and you don't pick up these instruments that are coup stick. You know for me. It's about the simplicity of the story and how his voice tells the story so I'm really there as accompaniment and After we got this project together I then scratch my head and I said we have. These great songs took US several years to assemble not only poo bear's music but the production. That we then t-bone for most of the production of the album t-bone improve air never even really met each other. It was like playing telephone talion record. Bits of a song in my airstream and then I would take it to village recorders where t-bone would be working and we would build these tracks up under his production and oversight and then I play the tracks back for Poo bear and I'd say hey what do you think and eventually we all got in a room and realize that there was an amazing project here but we also were missing one crucial piece. Which is the link to all music? In my opinion the Bob Dylan of it all and I asked t-bone whether or not he thought it would be possible for us to get a lost basement. Tape lyric sheet that. Pooh bear could take and do something. Amazing with and I truly thought that connectivity of the worlds of t-bone myself as you know again jingles part of American music history and and there's a huge heritage and through line that goes from the church good Jingle Writers Tin Pan Alley that. Take you all the way to people like you know. Randy Newman Neil diamond. Some of the greatest songwriters of our time really do start in that place and I've always diminished the role of jingles by even having a lackey name like jingle jared but all of these things coming together and then Bob Dylan On top of all of that I realized that there was a unique American musical story that we could tell and I thought of nobody better than Poo bear as a melody and top line person to take something significant like Bob Dylan lyrics and turn it into something brand new and essentially. I'm telling you all this. Because it's a new model for how bands and how music and how storytellers can converge to do things that haven't been done before in the music business and a business that seen it all done at all and every fat in the world I had to look backwards to look forward and a big moment for Us believing this was going to go into something more real than just us. Making songs was the first time we ever played them. Live in this. Special episode is all about Showcasing what that music sounded like the flash point in the genesis at the point where we were performing at Winston House. We didn't know that there was going to be a podcast. We didn't know that it was going to be an album. We just knew that we were having amazing. Time making this music and it was our first showcase to the world to get people interested in what we're doing and I don't even know if we could have ever predicted what would happen Months and months later that it would turn into something much bigger but we did know that there was a high concept idea. Here we did know that we're feeling a little bit of the strain of the politics of American. We want to make an album reflected race class culture and could look backwards and look forwards at the same time so this is Doing our first ever performance at the Winston House. And if you've never been to the Winston House my friend Cory. Maguire is Founder of it and it's an amazing secret little place in Venice where anyone may show up on any given night and perform music in the past. They've had everyone from tiny emerging acts that you've never heard of all the way up to Ed Sheeran and Justin be reforming there. And it's really cool to see music being brought back in a significant way in La especially on the west side because it's typically not known for that And this performance is three songs.

"Everything's different but the same It end of the day. The song has amazing. The Hook has to be hooky and it has to be simple and effective and so for the different genres. It just way more exciting doing you know Americana just because it's something that me coming from my culture in my race you know is kind of like as a kid who looked about look at not being there cool to listen to that or be into that so to be able to to have that in you know really in the nineties sneaking listening to third eye blind and oasis and Nirvana and like sneaking hearing stuff. It may be all love to do something like that in years and years later our fantasy band in on my I could do. Let's sit right now. You know and really but at the same time doing fantasy bed is still like. We're still sensitive still. We still don't want to be whatever even Nossa. A fantasy man is still like our our passion. You know art and to be honest. A lot of the stories that ended up being part of the fantasy story you know. That is our backstory. Everything in the podcast. If you really know the weird things Apu bear and I've done. We shown up at pro bowl riding and Maga country where like a Jewish guy from Toronto. Who SHOWS UP? And he's like what the fuck is this like. Get the hell we we. We went to We went to France where we've been to the marlins like all these little things that are written into the story in the last episode which I won't give away essentially Poo bear story from his documentary. Like when I saw the Red Bull. Doc that the people who directed and produced it created about him. I didn't know anything about poo bear's life except for the fact that he made amazing music. We had a lot of fun together. We hung out and then when I saw that I was so moved by some of the things that it actually happened in life. That got him to where he was that like. Most people don't know much about people who work in music and what it takes to tell stories but you are. You know it's your at least twenty years into the business more three and I didn't realize that you were writing songs you know. Had I known any of this stuff before we actually got together? I probably would approach the our first meeting with a bit more caution and engineer and this and maybe an idea nobody cares but You know the fact that I've been able to do all this cool stuff with poo bear and right into the fiction of what we're doing. I think that's what people have reacted too because I you know it's the first time I've ever done a podcast First Time you've ever done a podcast and I wanted to come in at a level where there was some level of in entertainment with the music some level of education with I love musical history and I over think things but puberty naturally understands the blues and folk music. Those things don't have to be explained to him. It's like I pick guitar and go. Oh you know one three five and all of a sudden. There's this complex melody over it but I think that is why t-bone reacted to it the way he has. That's why the reason why Dylan got involved in this. I think that's the reason why you know. We're sitting next to Dolly part in the white stripes and other very serious is right now if this keeps going on which looks like a will got a season to season three to tell me what you see happening next and what you who you would like to collaborate with dream collaborators. As far as like taking it down the line. If there's anybody I really feel like a cool thing would be able to to work with people who you know a great stat here anymore. That's cool especially in the be able to hear what type vocals we can get our hands on. You know that they haven't been hurt just recordings you're hearing a lot of stuff. Now come out. I mean it happened when Park and Biggie when they passed away like all of a sudden these other records were coming out remixed by artists of the day of fit the sound. That was coming out at that. Time could be an interesting concept. Take those same kind of songs that may be might not have hit the public the way they wanted at the time and taking a fresh approach to him. Now you know like makes fun. We're almost remixing culture. Because it's not even about the music were in history. Inserting ourselves into sister is a little Richard Ronnie Hawkins and just picking parts of history apart. And I. You know when we talking with Dennis Quaid today the the whole concept for me really made sense when I started watching this. Ken Burns Documentary About Country Music. And you'd see a photo of like twenty people and all of a sudden he pulling back and there's two people there that aren't supposed to be there that aren't from that time or that place. That's what Barron Banjar. They show up seeing those pictures. You know what I mean and waving Selena twenty. Walk into the movies that kind of what the thing is. It's like we're hung. There's a little bit of like Is that a quantum leap. That's about it. Yeah bearing Banja Wheel Quantum leap pin and his but also lied about what actually happened in history. I know we're kinda getting limited time. I WANNA ask both of you guys. 'cause jared you play the lead actor really in this. Besides Dennis Banjo you have a big part of your narrating your life guidance through Poo bear your characters a little less involved. How did that come about and were you comfortable or uncomfortable with like the acting. Part of the whole thing You know what I was comfortable with it. Just because is really not a real band and so I wasn't nervous and just because I look at it like that in that way. I don't I protect myself and protect my feelings. You know Sort allowed me to be myself in. I'm bear and just added you know what a little fun man is really like pretending. I didn't get a test as a kid. Really pretend much. I wasn't any toys so now that I have a kid in those Kinda. It's Kinda cool to prepare as an adult and it was. I wanted to make sure that the PU bear or the bear character was also very mysterious where he solves problems through the music and he comes with good advice. It's almost like a fable in my voice again to protect myself in the levels of masking of the story. I just I love Bob Dylan and I know that throughout his career. He's used several voices to sing and actually speak throughout his rap and everything he he. Really Interview Nobel Prize speech. He really is speaking like a liquor. Blackjack dealer from Kansas City. Hit the fifty eight. That's when I was ran away from home when I was a connie like it's all made up. There's nothing that's unreal. So it's a truly in the thirties. Forties and fifties with being Bear Banjo would be this big liar whose adapting to every environment. He's in leagues. Elig says I'm just to go with that voice. I heard him do salon and Dennis. I was very insecure and I was like. What do you think he goes? It's perfectly moronic for what it is that Jay Banjo is which is he's a big liar and he's great any. His voice could change if he was hanging around British people. It might change. If he's hanging around Canadians to write Madonna. She'd come out code people getting richer they become British. Sometimes I haven't been having gotta you five years. Who was like hello and I am I good yeah well thank you guys so much Bearing a Banjo. This has been a little special. Actually I have one last question before we wrap. Would you say is the weirdest thing that's happened since you've known me in terms of like the craziest does door day this interview? Maybe because I know what it is. I don't know if you remember the weirdest thing that ever happened I would probably just say your suit. That's one of the weirdest things will. Would you say that place in Atlanta? You took me to. Oh the Blue Flame. Blue Flame Yeah That was a culture shock for you. That really was and I think I walked in. I didn't have enough information or they're not anything. That's I'm like kind of. I enter every day so I didn't know at the time but that place was I place. It was pretty hard but full circle much like when I met Pu. I didn't Google until the next morning. I didn't Google blue flame till the next morning. Jesus Christ where did you take me to start everything that came under the murder death shooting here? But you must be very hospitable. Everyone's really nice to me this. The cartel Barron Bangles. You know I just want like that was a lot of fun Banjo. Suit has pretty much deserves a podcast of its own. Yes sure if anyone hasn't seen it go take a look at any of the press kits or any of the stories online any visual image. That see what Jared Commission for this band in this this show which you know. We're on join and I thank you guys for sitting down with us here and thank you talking more than you have in this. Thank you blue. Flame address for anyone interested in Atlanta. Is Google Google that? That's a true fictional story going to sponsor season to buy a Yankee hat. And they're either no I did that. That's what I was wearing and someone's like you better take that off. Get taking it off all right anyway. Jared GOOSESTEP POO. Bear continued success. Barron Banjo keep listening. Keep download until your friends share. Get on social media promoted. Make It happen and get prepared for the final episode which is going to blow everyone away especially when you hear what we've been cooking up in the studio and Thank you guys.

"Thing where we do like a basement tape thing and he goes. Oh, yeah, used to work over at Sony. Let me see if I can talk to his manager through some bizarre back, channeling I'm at my codge in Canada and I get a phone call from him and Dylan's manager. Go we google. Jingle punks think is really interesting, but we have questioned about. WHO's. The most established right in the world. What is what do you mean? Where are you now I have billions of St. I said write songs that are questions. What do you mean? Where are you now? The that's his thing and they go, and he goes okay. We'll call you back. They apparently speak to Bob Dylan. WHO had by the way no problem with Jingle punks or Jingle? There was this question. And they call go. He's going to send you an email right now. I get the lyrics and a week later and Pooh. Bear should tell the story because. Various unmoved by a lot of things. Just because he's you know like you. He's he's in. He's that I I am the tourist. This whole project I've never been in a blockbuster movie I've never been in a had a hit. I've created a Jingle Company and when that thing came into focus I put the. Lyrics sheet on poopers desk in front of me goes. Oh, Bob Dylan wrote this I was like Iago's cool twenty minutes later. The songs that's he goes. Yeah, we're done. And then I had to send it back. The T. Bone to had to send it back there and then they're like this is great. Produce it now. What's a song called? That one is gone, but not forgotten, and that is the going to be the final episode of the season on, but not forgotten and that script is a. Script with. Tom Piazza wrote it for Dennis in a leading lady and you did that with resort Zindler. Am I in that one. No. All right I still technically work with dealing. There's a book component coming out to Barrena Banjo. Jared is that something that keeps surprising Dennis once again really. Yeah Yeah Yeah. Work so this is I am I'm all in on the Audio Universe? Here's what I WANNA. Do I want you and I? To have a concept and I want to write it like this, and then I want to transcribe the book based on A. Multiple our conversation I have an idea of where it goes after season one and you know bear. Banjo could show up anywhere. They could show up in Seattle at the Donald as they could. Studio Fifty Four. They can show about studio fifty four. That I'd love to write some new stories with you about that because I feel like. Every oppressing. We've done so far. People are just strangely comparing it also the quantum leap where they just like jump from time to time without meaning it now that we've proved that they actually existed now we can raise some more reggae seventy-seven Jamaica. NWEA haight Ashbury Way Montego Obama, but it's a great way to educate people. I think about music. I love music, history and I look forward to the day that Ken Burns. Does the the nineteen documentary on Mumble rap? We're GONNA get their. Juice world was a talented young man. So lot look forward to in the Barren Banjo universe. Got This. What are we drink in here?

My Lord Golden Harvest of Mason Jar I mean this is the real shit. Excuse me. This is the real stuff Raila Shine! It's definitely sipping Warms the whole body. Yeah Nice. Can I ask you a question Dennis I know you have a vast musical background growing up watching you know playing the killer incredible performance. You play in a band, the sharks. And You've been around music. You're stroman earlier. How did your musicianship help? You kind of I guess t-bone introduced you guys because you guys have a mutual love for certain types of music, but. For Dr Cues Character. was there like a little bit about your past or your love? This music that really attracted you to the character well. I grew up in Texas. In Houston, which is. Very much taxes and cap also western Louisiana. A while there's a kind of a real Gumbo of music that you down there and my dad was also really into Frank Sinatra and Dean Martin. And I had a very wide. Musical Range growing APP that in my house or on the radio and Buzek has always been a part of my life. But acting came along, and that was the path had opened up to me, but music has always been a part of even my acting career in Seoul songs to movies I was a done musical movies and. I mean Steph humble CD's? It burns them great balls of fire the footage that you show me with you and Cowboy Jack Clement and like getting taught by. Louis and that's one of those. That's one of those lucky life. Experience. Guitar. Your Food Guitar Johnny Cash That'd, be fun DA. masterclass on. Charlie chocolate factory moments. You've had the most fascinating existence the people you've met at sometimes you're again with Dr Q. n you in real life. That's kind of the inspiration for you. Tell me things and I had I nodded and I go i. know about that and then go home and Google it because I don't want to seem like. I don't know what I'm talking about, and I'm like Oh my. My God I didn't know that Cowboy Jack Clement. Did this and I didn't know that the Carter Cash family. Oh, I didn't know that you know Tanya. Tucker I. Didn't know any of these things and or Jerry Lee your connection to American. Music is so deep the fact that like Look Lynn this year at the the you know the rhyme in when they did that big tribute. You're up there. With history, but that was like one of those moments because know I didn't belong there. They just him come over I. Just think I'm sitting next low rental and. Of just adored. And idolized and Don't just as the lucky life love it. They say what's the, but I never played I'd never played piano when I got a great balls of fire. I didn't play piano. I. Play Guitar, but I had a year to to learn it and. For twelve hours a day, learning and and Jerry Lee was one of my teachers to like really slow down the licks, and also just being around him a lot. Yup and just worked on the left hand. It's all it is. It's flooding. really right Dennis is. Passion for not only music, but also the intensity of anything he's into at the moment. him committing to it one hundred percent, he would reset by playing a bunch of. These songs on the piano and Dennis is here. I was thinking to myself. Man I worked a six hour day. exhausted. I'm Brentwood tired. Tired. The TV show. And I was like I, bet you and I.

If you haven't listened to Banjo download it now. Listen to the entire season. Whatever's available up? Get caught up here. People turns out that the question was kind of the story was. But, if people are looking to listen to a typical musical episode like you know what you might see on. Broadway or an crazy ex girlfriend? It's now you're going to get here. It's like the music is more like an Easter egg to the actual story, the story being about the music. We're trying to secretly teach people about musical history I have. It's weird because as dumb as I am I do love long form entertainment and learning about the secret history so. DOC, which wasn't even out at the time that we started. This is almost like when you look at one of those Ken Burns photos, and you keep pulling back and all of a sudden Barron Banjo or there. Are Those two guys. Sort of had a hunch, and then the strangest thing happened which we go to south by South West and Connell. WHO's really really smart and Gail who's really really smart goes? Why don't you and Dennis and Pooh bear come to south by open for Tim McGraw Talk About it again the we did in the room with Dennis Talking Poo, and I play a few songs, and it was like this barnum moment where it felt like we were Baron Banjo. Were Banjo it. He's got this letter Jack. He's got whole sues. Jackets suit the toreador outfit. Erbil and spent the money. Yeah! Have a budget I'm. Never known. What is the fray where we get? Hit the Stop Watch. That's it money is stopped spending. The craziest thing about that all like thinking about how surreal it was at that moment at south by we open for Tim. McGraw is one of the biggest country stars in the world and even Tim. Afterwards was like what was that oh? Cool it. Is that what you know? We don't know right and. Is So humble. He shows and I love the moment before we go onstage because everyone's so cool. Denis is like lives in the moment, so it's always ten minutes before we go on stage where I'm starting to actually feel the nerves that he's like. What are we doing here? Remind me. What is this and I? Say? Dennis, we're pitching again, but this time to brands and hoover then goes with me. What do we which project and what are we doing? It doesn't really give me a chance to really get nervous about things. Because then it really is like a circus. We've run this thing like a media. Circus is a new form a new art form I think. Is there an ultimate goal for the PODCAST as a show? Is it a television? Thing is a tour. What do you guys? Should be I think it should be unto itself, and from that can't come things. I think like television shows. If the is enough, interest has an audience so many movies that are made into TV series. Here's one four nine podcast maiden into and guess what became a movie Red headed stranger young. Tommy. Tommy Gesture Sergeant, pepper's had a really bad Nicholson saying yes, and Elton John Version of pinball wizard. That's actually my favorite verse. Kidding. My wrong. Jeez who wrote me these notes I'm sorry. Reference. And we. Like we should go from poly to the Bob Dylan of an awesome. Segue because anything is. That like we always gloss, we glossed over this at south by every now and then someone's like go. Yeah, and Bob Dylan's involved I would like to talk about those while I've known jared about almost ten years now I think, and for Bob Dylan's been him. You're to hear him in weird al which is bizarre, but beautiful fan ballengee. Bromley in Branson Missouri by the way. They all are. Theater town. Okay, you know I just want to know I. Guess First of all. You got to work with your hero. How'd that come about? And can you just sort of breakdown? What the song is that? He wrote as fast as you can. How much time do we have? But right it is reticent. I had this amazing philosophical conversation last week. And I'm not going to get too deep into it. But I. All I will say is that it and I'll give you my philosophical answer. Then I'll give you my little one is Dylan lives in service of the universe? He's not actually you know. There's people who've played in bands with them. There's t-bone. Who's produced music and you can. You can work with this person. You may never meet him. You may never talk to him. You may never and you're like, is it? Is this some sort of idea to like psych people out and. Rolling Thunder View. One of the guitarists was interviewed and they're like. What was it like you know for the time of year when the music I never met them like how well all of that? All of that as Ben True for Jilin throughout his career. The the Mystique of that he brings with things. It's a full commitment to your life in service of the universe, because there are people that are mysterious that exist in different time escapes the new where they can disappear for ten years show for five disappear for ten again like in a weird way every now and then. I always say this even with Poo bear. Sometimes, there's like in a lifetime. There's a few artists that are the beacon of all ideas of the universe whether it was the Beatles. Dylan and you can laugh, but Poobah with with Bieber. Bieber has is the only artists in the world that has like billions of streams off multiple songs. You don't need to like his music, but clearly billions of people do and. And you and your life looks different because of how many people digest what you're doing, and Dylan has been doing that now for holy. Shit since the. What was it the early sixties? Yeah, said to what sixty one two three and we saw last weekend killing it on at eight. Yeah, yeah, and that was something, but the weird thing was. It was like dealing with some. Secret Organization like I. Don't want to say too much because I wanna like. He. His whole thing is obfuscation so. Hey, t-bone I wanNA in this project. It would be really cool if we took a basement tape, song and Pooh bear the biggest topline writer of our time, and I the biggest General Guy Right, or whatever I throw myself in the history, but I just you gotta ask you. Don't get so t-boned goes. That's cool Alaska nothing for for year a year later. Hey, man, what happened with the Dylan. A year later I'm Nashville. I'm at a bar and I meet this Guy John and set. Oh! Jingle Jared Oh yeah I, if you're working with a T. Bone, he's my client and he goes. WHOA. What's going on with that project? It was like well. We're going to wrap it up soon, but I've been trying to get to this like Dylan lyric.

"To this very special episode of Barrena Banjo. This is the making of the PODCAST podcast. This is A conversation with my collaborators Dennis Quaid who you all know from his amazing film Tv and music career. As well as my music collaborator Poo Bear And in case you know him he's worked on some of the biggest songs of all time including all the songs off. Justin Bieber's purpose. Where are you now? What do you mean his d'esposito Remix was a global smash? His ten thousand hours is currently the top country song in the and you worked with Ed Sheeran and Bieber on the last song they did call. That don't care but more To the point he created this amazing Americana Music with me for this project that I really wanted to bring people inside how we got from an extremely interesting but somewhat esoteric idea all the way from it just being a concept album to being what is bearing a Banjo. We start the conversation in my airstream with Dennis Quaid. And then we go across town to Black Star studios where Pooh bear works for us to complete the conversation and talk about the music I hope you all enjoy and we really really appreciate the audience. That is following us on this journey. Thank you so much. And here's our behind the podcast podcast on Berna Banjo..

"As. They drove over a rise in the highway. Prison road game came into view. Father and son became as excited as hounds on the Fox. When the automobile with the strange recording contraption pulled up alongside the road gang. The black men stopped singing. The guard in charge was a tall, red headed man with a half moon cut out of his forehead, he was called Bull Ball and he wore a wide, brimmed yellow hat and walked with the Riverside Sixteen Gauge Shotgun Twenty at the Earth. Approach the car suspiciously. John Lomax explained he was traveling with a recording machine loaned to him by the Smithsonian. Institute, in Washington for the purpose of documenting vernacular songs of Rural America. Bull looked at him like he was trying to decide if he should shoot his tires. More pass win. Young Allen produced a book by his father. Cowboy songs and other frontier ballads. With an introduction by Theodore Roosevelt. Boom all was not impressed. natty Johnson was recorded years later for the low Max archives. He recalled the day he met the father and son. I remember looking over and pool balls standing there y'all was showing them miss. Not Having. You know he doesn't care about some book. I'm not even sure ball knew how to read and then I see the film in the back seat. The Banjo. Any pools out of Shining Watt. Go. With, a silver chain and boy that seemed to do the trick. Boo Ball. You don't like much, but I can tell you like that China. So I'll see him giving you the okay to get out of the call and this Banjo fellow. He's got his guitar route now. He's trying to get us to start backup singing. But everybody's a little bit nervous, not sure. You know. What this is exactly. What's going on? and. That's when the Fella next to me. He starts singing again. And he's got a powerful voice. So the rest of us we. Start joining into. And Banjo. He walks over and he stops. And he goes up to the man with a strong voice and he starts talking to. Real quiet an intense luck. Right by him, so I could hear what he was saying. And I remember he's calling him. Mr Bid. And he's getting agitated. asking. Them have ended up on. Louisiana Rogaine. And this fellow. He's calling bear on. Never forget him. He looks and right in the eye and says back to them. You, must have me mixed up with someone else My name is ledbetter. Banjo held his tongue. He was trying to the situation and mentally rifling through a file of tricks, hoaxes and long cons. Is Instinct and natural inclination was to maintain a poker face in all circumstances, but coming upon his friend chained to the caboose of the Louisiana road gang shook Banjos APLOMB. Bear was calm. He said he had a song. He would like to sing for the aluminium. Recording machine. He whispered some chords to Banjo while the lomax setup there contraption, and then with a hushed audience, a fellow prisoners, and a bull balls, nervous finger on his shotgun, the man called bear by Banjo and Ledbetter by the Guard sang a mournful song of despair. Sometimes I take a great notion. To jump in the river and drown. Chorused counter intuitively by a courteous goodnight Irene goodnight, Irene, I'll see you in my dreams. No one had heard this song before. When it was done, bear gave Banjo and instruction. Get that to the governor and tell them Hoodie. William ledbetter of Angola prison host to gain apart and to pursue a career in lobby arts. Banjo looked at the big man with an expression. It said. I hope you don't. Boo Ball comes over and he says. Okay. That's enough of this and you gotTA. Get Out of here. You got what you want to go on. You gotta go now. And, so Yogi back in the car, and as you're driving off the Fella next to me. He goes out while you're driving by. He says. Go to Shreveport. Firewall to boy don't Finn in street. and. I'm thinking hell. Pool balls not. GonNa like that. Fellow yelling out like that. And I look over at, but he didn't even notice because bull balls looking in his pocket and he's looking mighty upset. Then I see them looking all over because he already can't find his fancy new pocket watch. He's looking on the ground. He's looking everywhere. And it is gone. And he's staring at the car. Driving off in the distance and bull ball is mad as hell. I'll tell you what that time piece must have had a long chain. Well, this is new territory even for J. Banjo. Having. His longtime companion and friend pretend to be someone else. Not Even let non with a wink or nod, as he puts himself, smack, DAB, in one of the most dangerous prisons in the world. kind of feeling for a loop. But only went with their instructions head Louisiana. bums music in Louisiana had been happily described as an embarrassment of riches. Louisiana generated several seminal musical styles and contributed to the development of many other. So when Banjo father and son Lomax made their way to the Red Light district in Saint Paul Bottoms. They moved from honky-tonk two saloons body houses today. Each featuring their own assortment of live music. RAGTIME minstrel. PARLOR BALLADS And this must have blown their verbiage Ma. It was Banjo who spotted a chalkboard on the sidewalk outside a tavern with the inscription. Entertaining Tonight Walter Boyd on. Piano Mouth Organ, box and guitar. The three men entered the tavern, and we're at once overcome by singing voice of authority and great emotion. The man called Walter Boyd Sat on a three legged stool with a twelve string guitar across his lap, clapping his large hands, and stamping his right foot, while hauling yonder comes Ms Rosie how in the world that she no way. She wears her apron way. She wears her clothes umbrella on her shoulder piece of paper in her hand. She come to see the governor. She wants to free her man. The lomax sat there stunned by song after song. Rock island line. Where did you sleep last night? The gallows pole. When the set had ended Banjo followed the man who called himself Walter Boyd into a small back room and introduced himself as a friend of Mr Bear. Boyd was suspicious. Any bears.

"The search for information about this elusive figure has overtaken my musical and sociological study. Every new clue each new testimonial or bit of evidence I uncover adds another piece to the Jigsaw puzzle picture. I am working to assemble Mr Bear and his partner who called himself Jay. Banjo seemed to have been present and even influential at many of the signal events in the history of American vernacular music from Parchman farm to New Orleans from the Bristol sessions. Two sons -TUDIOS for years experts haven't been able to agree on exactly where Barron Banjo should even fit into the neatly categorized world of modern music. The pop up all around history. They're sort of like Kaiser. Soza of the musical world musical ghost stories if you will story Beirne. Banjo isn't just about music. Also about their proximity. History Luckily J.

He saw dollar signs and another day Banjo here. I'm just outside New Orleans. We got some city full gear with technology to bring my songs to the masses. I missed my chance. Back with them. Bristol sessions but the Lomax here now. They've been canvassing the country. This is my chance to make it all the way to the big apple as a showman. I haven't seen bear and some time now. I'm making my way with or without him. Perhaps these tunes are enough to get me signed on merit alone but if not there's always bear if I can track them down timid where could he be?

Where Governor Okay? Allen's papers are kept. I made contact with. Dj Brebner the son of the late governors longtime secretary body Bremner. It was my good fortune that bounty a- bachelor had cared for his father during a long convalescence and committed to memory stories. He heard many times. My father was the governor side every day. Saturdays included and often Sundays as well. I heard him speak a number of times about this character. Mister Banjo who I understand to have been a white man and Mr Bear. Who was a Negro. My father thought it unusual that Mister Banjo appear to defer to Mr Bear when they first came into the Governor's orbit it was assumed. That bad was banjos later. My father said he was quite certain that the lines of authority extended in the other direction. Although in those days in that part of the world is not.

What I believe to be the true story of how Governor Allan came into possession of the record attributed to Walter void.

In the governor's mansion okay. Alan came to be acquainted with John. Lomax the Lomax is people you might WanNa know. If you're trying to digest the story rooted in American Twentieth Century History they were folklorist and the Lomax John and Alan roam the American south making recordings of spirits blues and Folk Music Google. If you can interesting feller share once. I knew that I was able to fill in much more of the story with the invaluable aid of the lomax archive at the American folklife center of the Library of Congress.

Max's recorded non prisoners too and that is how they came to know. The man referred to in their notes as J Banjo.

He said he had heard that the famous song collectors were passing through and wondered if he might see they're recording machine. He explained that he was a musician. Himself an amateur collector of folklore. The Father John. Lomax was annoyed by this fast talking. Stranger Young Allen was amused and showed him the three hundred and fifteen pound uncoated aluminum disc recorder that father and son drove from town to town. Of course luckily for US songs and interviews lomax recorded from that era are available online for anybody to check up. Penny whistle mock.

The older one let that same fellow offer up a tune and that was pretty good. We believe the person he was talking about to be none other than J Banjo. Banjo was confident as could be.

"In telling this story. I've struggled to make sense of Teri. Rasmussen what is he he was likely in okla- hallock? He often looked early unkempt and looking at his various mugshots from over the years. The word that often comes to my mind is arranged. But I think that's probably an oversimplification a lot of what we know about Terry rest Newson suggests he was intelligent and disciplined. Intelligent because of his skills as an electrician because he was fluent in French because it gets think on his feet juggle half dozen false identities and lie his way out of almost every encounter. He had with police disciplined because he never talked. He never let slip his real name in a moment of weakness on a drunken night of all the years. He was on the run even when he was in prison for unsown murder when he had so much information to trade with prosecutors never said a thing. Rasmussen got away with the majority of his crimes as far as I can tell he only ever made two mistakes. One. I understand the other. I don't I understand was when he gave his prince two detectives after soon Jones disappearance, not knowing they'd come back the same day the mistake that makes less sense to me that is maybe the most confusing part of his story is that he let Lisa live. I if if I could ask them that. I'd I'd asked him like why why here's former contra Costa county detective Roxanne grew nine, you know, Lisa. Ultimately was the connection says the connection leases? The miss the mistake that he made goodness keeping her alive in his trail of murder that made that connection from contra Costa to Santa Cruz to San Bernardino to New Hampshire and to where it's gonna lead. I don't know. The mystery of the bear brook murders has taken so many twists and turns over the last three years I've reported on it almost learned not to be surprised by him anymore. But the one twist that does still get to me is the one thing that's never changed even as everything else around. It has the fact that we still don't know who the people found in those barrels are the fact that a whole family is dead. We don't know their names. You may have been wondering why haven't detectives used genetic genealogy twice dente fi the bear brook victims in the same way. They used to identify Lisa the answer is they tried. But there's one big obstacle in the way, the quality of the DNA samples from the victims. I asked Barbara venture about this. She says unlike Lisa's DNA sample DNA from the bear brook victims is severely degraded. They've they've been difficult from the beginning which talking about bodies that were out there exposed to the New Hampshire winters for between five and twenty years with almost no soft tissue remaining by the time. They were discovered forensic. Scientists have been forced to turn to the victim's bones and hair to look for DNA, and they have been able to get some temples taken. So far have retrieved motto Conrail DNA, which is the kind of DNA needed to test for maternal relationships. That's how we know three of the victims are maternally related, but to do, gene. Genealogy you need autosomal DNA, so far they haven't been able to get a clean sample in the victim's bones back Tiriac have apparently infiltrated into the bone. We've done multiple extra extractions, and unfortunately, you typically been heavily contaminated. So when they looked presented with human. What was bacterial that was like two or three percent human and the rest was oh tibia? So for now the bear brook mystery remains just a puzzle that sits just out of reach of the forensic technique it helped to establish a case that continues to move in reverse each new piece of information suggests there may be even more victims a case that has changed so much and yet hasn't at all..
"bear" Discussed on Bear Brook
"Years later when Mark I heard about the barrel discovered on Ed Gallagher's property. It didn't occur to him that Bob might have had anything to do with. In fact, it wasn't until just a few years ago. We New Hampshire cold case. Detectives showed up at his door that he learned. Bob Evans, wasn't his real name. And it's on me until they came in and open that book so picture, Bob Evans. And they mentioned had gala guys in no way. It's blame them. Once you saw that that I asked Mark if looking back there was anything suspicious that Bob Evans said or did or anything he remembers differently now that he knows the whole story. Mark told me about an electrical room that Bob Evans, always kept padlock wouldn't let any of the other workers inside. But worse than the padlocked room or the trips. Mark made Ed Gallagher's property in Allen's down trips or they loaded up. Hold truck beds of debris and dump them on the edge of bear brook state park, all sorts of junk, scrapped parts broken concrete. Maybe even a few fifty five gallon barrels and made that don't remember. Because I remember the truck I brought the stuff up. There was an old. Civil defence truck was dodge. Was a rack body was really long. I remember bringing stuff up there. Now. But I don't remember exactly, you know, everything that was on. Due humour that they could have been in that truck. When I asked this Mark looked up at me with a pain expression on his face, the grimace, he nodded. Yeah. I don't remember..
