I talked to so many people already particularly the young people Who just see no opportunity They have no work and now they've lost everything so they really have nothing to lose And they see migrating as the quickest way to be able to help to their families to rebuild and recoup everything. They've lost the united states government. has limited at least under the trump administration migration from many of these countries at the same time it's ass many central american countries to help it with its asylum policies Has the us. Government sent any aid to these countries as they struggle to deal with the blows from these hurricanes the lack of leadership from the us Following these crisis is really shocking. There's been no word from the state department or from the white house other than us aid which is down here. Most recently after i iota they designated seventeen million dollars through the region half of which is going to honduras and then also the. Us military base. Don't here has been a source of of rescue missions which has definitely been very helpful but seventeen million dollars when we're talking about billions and billions dollars damage and really in nine hundred ninety eight when hurricane mitch hit which was the worst natural disaster in central america to date it was. Us leadership that mobilized support from the global community and that is completely lacking at this point. president-elect biden has expressed is concerned and support for the region. So there's hope that when he takes office he will take that traditional leadership role of the. Us to help one of its neighbors. I'll be watching to see how this pans out.

How To Be An Anti-Casteist

"Warner. We started talking about cast with Lauren Freyer. This is Lauren NPR's India correspondent who started thinking about cast and race in part because of an initiative at NPR to track the diversity of sources. This is something we all know do including this podcast. We will note how many women were putting on the air, how many people of Color and other demographic stats I see my company trying to better represent America with the voices we put on the air and I'm looking at my own sourcing and I get too much credit. Every voice I bring to the airwaves from India as a person of color check the box you know that's diversity from my boss' point of view but I'm looking at different types of diversity in India and thinking. CAST. You see it in India when it comes to. Arranged marriages, dating APPS, you see it in real estate I mean there are subtle ways in which landlords choose tenants and signal to tenants. That certain cats are welcome or not welcome. There is no uncontroversial way to talk about cast and even the words we use are fraud. You're going to hear people in this story talk about upper caste and lower caste. We're GONNA try to avoid those hierarchies and say dominant cast at oppressed caste oppression is a strong term, but it definitely applies here. This is oppression that's gone back centuries. It was really amplified by the British. So British colonists came in and gave Brahmins privileges elevated them and exploited this power differential between the BRAHMINS and other castes and when Indians won their independence in nineteen forty seven, they wrote a constitution that acknowledges that oppression and lays out bold measures to try to fix it affirmative action programs to place dollars in government jobs to play dollars, its top universities, and all of that exists in India still today. But despite all of this dalits in India face so much violence disproportionate violence Daulat women are raped more than women of other Castes Dalit men get lynched for falling in love with dominant caste woman lauren knew she wanted to find out peoples cast to make sure she was hearing from variety of voices including people who don't always get access to speak. But. This broad a new problem. How actually do you find out? SOMEONE'S CAST? So Good question. How does one person Oh you're cast light it is not like you have a color which gives away your identity. Same Cornelia says, sometimes, it's easy. You just read someone's cast by their surname sometimes you cannot hide and how about your real surname is it easy to hide your? Name doesn't go my cost us a k. that this wife immediately when I only seven, they will ask me whole willing come from which part of the state you come from. There had to ask a follow up question. If you can't tell by surname, you can ask about someone's neighborhood are also tried to be clever I come from Hyderabad slow from Hyderabad. It's the city of nine million people all casts are there. So that's the people are not satisfied if you do named. So what they do is no, no. No. I'm not talking about with city you come from willow would your parents which relates Came from Sam keeps dodging the real question might played into used to stay in Bombay. Can. Actually before that, my father used to work. So he was daily. You just keep naming, cities. Because that is the facts also, then they will. They will understand that I'm playing around to the. Sam Doesn't want to reveal his cast because most of his Indian coworkers from dominant castes in fact, the overwhelming majority of south, Asians in America from dominant castes. They're often the ones with the resources and access to get here. The other portion usually people ask is already which. Because Brahman Salvage. Aliens. If you say. If you are in. Indian Austin Indian to find overcast he would say. Which stadium by Bertha, by choice and. The tricky thing about this is that a CO worker could be overhearing this entire conversation. is still have no clue what they're really talking about. They will not even the people were very active about this. In always discrimination and all they might have not heard about cast at all. One person who has written about this hidden code it's Sora. John. Day He's a scholar at Harvard and he wrote a book called cast matters I am A. Child of a former landless labourer and someone who is to clean toilet. into the houses of the dominant caste people.

One, hundred percent of the moment I met her but then she made she confirmed it when she went in to boost the demo song out that's what I was like, Oh yes. This is the star. Is there somebody that you've met that you've been like I don't know and you kind of passed on them and then you saw couple years later they blew up shit my I wasn't right that day YEP and every day I'd be like Damn. How did I miss that one but it was great. Oh, really well, no I'm with you I agree with wheat so. The what was your first introduction to drink you? You heard me song and you're like, nope, not going to have it. Now no actually this was before. Years before I even met Drake I had his name cardinal official and he was also from Canada and Cardi brought me a mix tape that he did before the Was the best I ever had. Yeah. So she she played me to mix tape but at the time he didn't sow obviously anything like you sound today because he sounded more like a Eminem type rapper at that time you know what I mean and my mind I'm like as adult rapper but desert someone out that kind of style was super similar and was very like it wasn't original enough for me. Okay. Yeah. I mean you know looking back on it that probably cost you tens of millions of dollars that socks. You catch them all and you're not really can't. You really can't You could say predict someone's growth because everyone grows differently and boy that boy because I mean even I? Think there was a moment where Sylvia Rhone thought that trey songz going to be bigger than drake you know no one's extent dissipated drake's growing the way it grew like right now he's probably one of my favorite rappers if I had to pick one yeah that's that's wild that you've that that is like your coaching tree almost is that you've got lady Gaga and all those people that have. Followed you long what what type of mentor ship to provide to them to help them reach that star status. Well, it's more. So just kind of polishing and in like injecting the confidence in what they already have because you really can't like I always I always disagree when people say well, they can make people off or I made your because you wouldn't be who you are always believed that people have natural. Talents and you've got to help them discover that talent within themselves. Because once they get that confident, then they can man this show positive that you never even saw was even there know not. I, mean that was kind of hinders artist from gin to that place is that lack of fearlessness and that lack of confidence I think the momaday acquired blows, two parts, men, sky's limit as to how far they can go. Talk Real quick about your city that you're building. You're building a futures futuristic city in Africa that has its own crypto currency called ACORN. Did you this whole thing because a coin is just like the perfect name for crypto currency. Your I got to build a criminal currency might as well build the city around bat whereas it. Is. Almost in that order. Almost in that order. So I got involved in crypto currency back in two, thousand, thirteen, fourteen when I met brought peers at the time he was one of the biggest bitcoin holder and he's is very influential in bitcoin world considered to be one of the founders of you know a group of other founders but he's like super impactful in that space and a guy named Ken Rakowski. Rep. Actually. Introduced me to him. So He kinda school me to what it was. How was moving at the time I saw how digital payments were growing really fast. Can they work because they were already doing it in Africa you know but they had in recent in America yet to that level. So I kind of already understood the concept but then when he walked me through the Process. Of How bitcoin work back in and then you know McGinley the idea of what all blockchain met and how would actually reach you know was impactful to the platform itself. That's what I was like Oh this is the solution for Africa. So I said I got to create my own African coin. So I called it the a coin for African coin it gets so hat. Happens Yeah Yeah. I was like. This was meant for me. This is perfect. Mean it all kind rolled together but then you have a coin, you all in mine is a utilization. Utilization Coin. So I have to have some you could utilize it towards right. You can't have a coin and you can't spend it or you can't use it towards anything of value. So Mile Ideas I want the token is not only entrepreneurs all throughout Africa and the and the resources of Africa already has to give but someone everyday basic everyday life. We start to realize that you can go to certain parts of villages and people using their. Cell, phone minutes s constantly like they will go in and buy some fish and then transfer like maybe ten minutes of cell phone minutes for the purchase of that. That's how crazy and how you could say how. Confident, they were of the local dollar. So that's what I said. Okay. We need to create not only the a point where we want to create what we now call the Atomic Swat where you can actually take your cell phone minutes and you can actually convert those to actually coins spill real currency and when you travel outside of Africa those Acorns, you'll have and hold the same value. Tomek swap has just bad, ass very cool. So it's Yes I really like it house the city going, where are you at in terms of the building of the city in four like sold city was it took about five years materialized where we are today It's an eight billion dollar project But then we had brought it down to a six billion dollar project just last month, we were able to secure the six billion dollars for the city. So now we have everything in order including the master. Plan to city and come January. Of Two thousand, twenty, one, we start construction. So first phase in which will be in three phases tenure project first phases. The first years will you'll be able to after the first phase of the first building project you'll be able to fly into the city have fun work and play by twenty, twenty, four hold where the plan I mean like you talk about dreaming big eight, billion dollars is more than six.

"My whose back is Mark Jackson Mark Jackson is back. So the Bulls fired Jim Boylan on Friday which I gotta give a shout out to Jim Boylan, because as terrible of a coach that he is and he is truly truly terrible like never has anyone been less qualified for a job than Jim Boylan I still miss him because he's on this podcast. Yes that's true. No billy is more qualified be on this podcast Jim. Boylan, was to coach NBA team. That's bold statement IQ Jim Boylan. I'm. Going to miss him still because of his quotes about soul quotes about growth plates, his random timeouts the time that he burned all his time out with like six minutes left in the fourth quarter the time he did hockey shifts the time that he had the bulls do a practice after back to back and then the team had mutiny, and then he had a leadership committee what about the time card at time cardis there's so many most i. do you want to just say one quote that? Sums up the essence of Jim Boylan forgot about this I thought retreat on my timeline in. Two Thousand Nineteen he must have I. don't know where he was or what was going on why I guess. I know what was going on earthquake Jim Boylan talking about earthquakes said I just think it's awesome. The power of nature to think that subject can move that building that much it's on spiring to me. That just tells you what he is. He Jim Boylan would there would be an earthquake and you just stand underneath the building being like watches building top. That's GONNA. Die I like that he's fascinated by nature. It's like that insane clown Sasha Song about magnets like holy. People don't take time to think about nature small miracles but Jimmy does Jimbo. Jimbo fired I don't know who the Bulls are going to hire, but also the Pelicans fired Alvin gentry. So Mark Jackson is now going to be talked about and I. Think I heard it correctly that he said Zion was his rookie of the year. Over the weekend, which is awesome because it's just such a she'll move by a guy who's been calling Zion fat all year to then how the Pelicans Fire Alvin gentry and him being like this. Zion. Kid He's good. Listen Mark Jackson knows how to get a job. And keep a job usually that's one thing that he's very, very good at I. Think he I think Mark Jackson is realized that the longer he stays announcing the like someone's going to be like, Hey, we should probably be done with Marceca's announcer. Yeah. So he knows that it's time to get a job as a coach I hope to God it's not with the Bulls, but I do hope to God it is. With the Pelicans because I'd love to just watch that Bruins I on and everyone would be like what the fuck and will win an NBA title the minute Mark Jackson Fire. Right. This is how this dog brains in America work. We see somebody on TV long enough talking about a sport and we think that they are capable now of coaching I don't think anyone high love. Jackson's Cape. Oh he's started started to convince people. He's going to get a job though. No that doesn't mean anyone thinks he's capable that just means it's in the front office or just going with a name, right? That's what I'm saying. Yeah. But that they know he's not but that's that's what we think is like we see somebody on TV enough and they become an expert. You Forget. Jackson assembled that Golden State Warriors same yes. Kevin Durant would not have a ring if it weren't for March really did he he he he put in the culture that ended up winning yup? Those. Titles. You're WHO's back Lacrosse. Okay I, who El, just very Chris Hogan just signed with the jets.

We sent me to worse than they functioning so tired I was like losing days and was just like anyway, but I'm. I'm on the last week and week. Now I'm going to be on vacation. For two weeks family and just like unplugged. were, catching some a breath of fresh air But it's been it's been heavy in. It's interesting because. Like yesterday well. My sister came in town Smithsonian hurl families. Let's say. I hate. I don't want to ever be the person misses a party because of work, so I have to part of the party. Something like doing all this stuff like making sure. There and I guess they my daughter Bertha, but they all went to roaring springs. This is a big water park here for her birthday. Mike I can't miss that so. Waking up like five in the morning from five till noon, getting basically wholefood workday, and they took off with them, worrying springs till like eight o'clock at night we got back and and then it went from eight till two thirty in the morning, so we're two shifts that day plus the ship the kids. It's like sleep is basically I got to get rid. Something only can get rid of a sleek Mike in fun. Family I can read projects that pull out sleep and get rid of it. which you can't do for too long. But now it's Tuesday. Fat Tuesday and Wednesday for me to go, and and getting all the new coaching modules that are going to be launching next week at all done, and then plus I have three event, which is a virtual event, which means I'm only when they're speaking, so I've got a dozen or so presentation. I'm working on their. Needless to say it is a lot. The, the burden is heavy, but the good news is is like it's almost like this week to be able to unplug speak. So we're GONNA talk about those shortcuts 'cause like in the process of. Moving forward fast I can't. I for. Right 'cause. There's everything done. Like it's impossible so yet. Look for shortcuts and so one icing about this whole like I don't know. Maybe it's bad, but say for me. It's like I tried everything like. Prepaid. Plan I just. Like just in time production like like everything, get unjust in time. It doesn't get done early ever like it never has my life I never got homework done until the minute delay right I never got projects that because like. Because if it's like if I planet to advance and all time to think and then like. The greatest comes when you're under pressure and stress. Discovering these shortcuts, and so yesterday got back and waterpark sitting there. It's like eight o'clock nine o'clock nine and my bad start working on the modules again. It's like I. Don't think it's done in time and I'm thinking like. How can I short? How short this looking for the shortcut right? And then like appeared in a shortcut in this situation was whose? whose products and whose content whose courses license to shortcut I'm doing and all sounds like. Oh, my gosh, like there was this modulated create probably would I mean realistically to create the whole thing, and it would have been good, but I don't know if could have been great. And I was like Oh. My Gosh, some in our community whose create something. That's great. As they can shortcut like could I wonder if she'd be willing to let me licenses so I called it up on through boxer Mike. Hey I need a a quick favor would be would license. Mean you're tired course, and and within about fifteen is we figured out a deal and a structure today I'm wearing her money, and she sent him your course and like I'm going to be playing that into the the training to fill this gap, and what's crazy is like like it. Just shortcut to me week like I just bought myself a week back. That would've had to figure out somewhere on the boat. It Lake. How that word anyway, but I bought myself a week back. And the reality is was she created was so much better than harder created like it's already man make looking at the stuff that she's sending over this way better than what I would have done she so much more detail, oriented and and And just everything's more thought through. Bet like it was just like it was a shortcut shortcuts. Save me a week worth of time. It saved me So much stress and anxiety and and then it actually to better myself, and so got me thinking like man whereas short cutting things. I'm looking at now everything. I'm doing right now in this in this window like he cannot do. What can I give some like? What's the? What's the things that working I work a shortcut? Was Licensing. Course and licensing content, and in this morning of three other people that I K, you Jimmy Product I can license or coarser. I can license teaches concept that you know better than I do can license it, and the people are sending me stuff like I'm speaking on my process.

"Hello Words nerds welcome to another episode of the dictionary. Podcast the one where the guy is saying. Stuff with all the words and the definitions. This first word is Bertha B. E. R. T. H. A. It is a noun from eighteen forty to a wide round collar covering the shoulders. This is French birth from birth with a capital B which means Bertha with a capital B. So it's probably the name. Oh that was a specific person Bertha. Who died in seven eighty three? No no one at the beginning of that not seventeen. Eighty three seven eight three That was a long time ago and she was the queen of the Franks so she probably wore this thing Which there is a picture of this wide round collar covering the shoulders Looks kind of fancy so she probably wore one and they said hey. We're going to call that Bertha all right now. We have Bertillon System Capital B. E. R. T. I L. L. O. N. Second Words System Noun from eighteen ninety three a system for identifying persons based on bodily measurements photographs and notation of data as markings color and thumb line impressions Big Data. This is from bear Alon who died in nineteen fourteen and was a French criminologist while sure. Of course then. The definition makes a lot more sense now now. We have barrel B. E. R. Y. L. is a Noun from the thirteenth century. A mineral consisting of silicate of beryllium and aluminum of great hardness that occurs in colorless hexagonal prism when pure and in various colors as green blue yellow or pink when not pure that is valued as a source of gems and that is the principal source of beryllium long definition. You know what I realized recently is that I don't I think of every single definition In this book is one sentence. Correct me if I'm wrong but I'm pretty sure that they've written it in such a way that it can just be one sentence. That's kind of interesting okay. This is From Middle French Baril from Latin Barillas from Greek Bariloche which means Which is a back formation from bear which means barrel and that is of Indo Aryan origin and is akin to the Perak read word Varela or Viloria couple ways to break that word and that means barrel. Now we have beryllium. It is a noun from circa eighteen. Forty seven a steel gray light. Strong Brittle toxic developed metallic element used chiefly as a hardening agent in alloys. And then it says to see the element table. Well there were a whole lot of adjectives that describe that steel gray light strong brittle toxic development and metallic that was seven seven adjectives but a couple of them seem to conflict strong and brittle interesting. Okay we have beseech. This is a verb from the twelfth century. Transitive is I one to beg for urgently anxiously number two to request earnestly synonym is employer. Now we have integrative to make supplication and then we have a synonym. It is the word. Beg B E G. Beseechingly is an adverb now. We have been seem B. E. S. E. E. This is an inch transitive. It's a verb from the thirteenth century. Starting with transitive. It is archaic to be fitting or becoming and now the transitive is also at archaic to be suit. Suitable to synonym is befit next. We have beset. It is a verb from before the twelfth century and I think we just have transitive one to set or stood with or as if with ornaments number two synonyms are trouble and harass as in inflation besets. The economy three to set upon synonym is a sale as in the settlers were beset by savages. Three beat to him in synonym is surround. Be Sentiment is a noun and that is good for that. Next is be setting adjective from sixteen thirty four constantly. Present or attacking. Synonym is obsessive. Now we have be shrewd it is a verb transitive verb from the fourteenth century. It is especially southern also archaic and we have this in an curse. I am going to put a curse on you I am going to be shrew you. Yeah that's weird next we have beside. It is a preposition from the thirteenth century. It is the I form one a by the side of synonym. No Sin not sending him as in walk beside me. One be in comparison with one see on a par with number. Two Synonym is besides number three not relevant to as in beside the point. Well I usually put an S. At the end I would say besides the point I guess it depends on the context beside oneself means in a state of extreme excitement. Ooh I'm so excited them beside myself with excitement that I get to read this book to. You all right now. We have the second form of beside. It is an adverb from the fourteenth century. One IS ARCHAIC. Synonym is nearby. Number Two is also archaic. Synonym is besides with this. That is our next word. Besides I form preposition. From the fourteenth century one synonyms are other than and accept as in no one besides US number two together with as in a decision that besides being practical is morally right. What an interesting example. Now we have the second form of besides advert from fifteen sixty four one as well. Synonym is also number. Two synonyms are moreover and furthermore.

I am I hang up. I was sitting on the whole seat. You just sit on the edge okay. I'm ready will. Laikipia is best known to us as the principality that Vlad the impaler Inspiration for Dracula ruled over in the mid fifteenth century but it also has the distinction of being a region with the the shortest rule on Record Petrou.

At the time we'll AK- was in a state of civil war whereas numerous families vied leadership plus it was fending off attacks from the Ottoman Empire and poor Petru third. who was both great grandson? And you great great nephew to Vlad. The impaler inherited the position from his father. Mugniyah the third who was too ill to lead lead but under tremendous pressure from numerous sources had through the third abdicated. The position as soon as he could sign the document to do so later Louis lists would support after the third as rightful ruler. Even though Petra showed no signs of interest in ruling was in fact it's locked safely away in another another powerful families prison. Now you're arbitrary rule.

I'm going through this optimistic faced such a dull one. I've kind of forgotten what it was about. Honestly at this point it's about the it was it was about about the pretender to the throne. Who is thought to have been technically the ruler of Valencia for twelve minutes signs of the caver? That's the EH twelve minutes I slow for. He signed the paper. Didn't want to be He abdicated but he had a mob of people who still wanted him to be the ruler. Mhm Jar by this audio podcast.

He has a record of the shortest reign. And that's only assuming fuming that you count it as being a legitimate rain and a lot of people don't because he essentially abdicated. Shortly after his father had also abdicated the throne so the revolution of eighteen thirty recall but that was That was the basis from which I drew inspiration And Yes yes. who had the vampire bid in?

"Heat gets to her. Willie they leave L. A.. But they get captured in Texas right. That's right and She This just examiner piece describes her reaction as being outraged innocence. Righteous indignation is would. I like to say And she really became a kind of a darling in the public eye because of Kinda like Bonnie and Clyde you know again that that whole the idea that victim blaming that we're talking about where people worship baddies because they they're looked at as like Robin Hood esque figures even though they're really kind of just in from themselves else. Yeah Yeah exactly. So this is where we see a very interesting twist. Bertha becomes a celebrity of sorts when they are arrested in Texas Bertha is acquitted and Willie is found guilty in a trial that it is surrounded by the Paparazzi and lookie Loos and so on. The judge apparently had a tough time forcing his way through the crowd to reach the bench. Willie goes up to San Quentin for a bit and Bertha's story spreads across San Francisco which leads Men Name Ned foster to make an introduction. You see Ned foster saw an opportunity in Bertha's strange celebrity or strange moment they would call it in the Pr Biz and and he said. Hey you're great you know Connery or whatever but why not check out showbiz an so bertha ends up doing this story a one woman show For this with this guy. The bailed out of jail in Texas. Yeah he's basically like a A promoter odor of sorts like a showman And they launch a booking at the Woodward's garden and eighteen thousand people came and to see her Her story where she kind of presented herself as the victim in kind of like an epic poem. My guess called the Confidence Glean would you like to would you bless us with a Reading Man oh shall we okay so inven- grasping men panther glittering entering gold. And find their bonanza in me. Is it wicked to show up. How badly their sold and the rogues that men can sometimes be think they lost a little bit of the meter at the end but you see what they're doing yeah romanticizing? They're they're doing exactly what we just cried. The very top of this show Selling that image even even further which I think is Almost another act of con artistry in itself Yes creed agreed and she Gets booked tat the Bella Union so now instead of getting booked by police. She's getting booked by promoters. Yeah and this is a big deal because at the time the Bell Union is the most popular venue for music in San Francisco News. Great Way at the San Francisco Examiner puts this. She discovered her. Lack of talent was no barrier to popular. Well we we can relate to that. Can we be a little a little too easily. She was paired with the of course the world famous OOFTA goofed the Personal favourite yeah. I'm sure we're all familiar with goofy But just in case someone's been living under a rock all these years Noel. Who could you tell us a little bit about goofed? Gupta he was like a barbary coast. which would be like a pirate situation? Right yeah And he is his stick was that he was a human punching bag And they would do these. Boxing matches were staged and She would knock him out. You know Mike Tyson punchout style and then then Decided to take it a step further and add a little humor and foster thought it'd be really cute to cast them in any version of Romeo and Juliet. Oh I should amend this real quick the barbary coast that they're referring to is a red light district in San Francisco. Snap okay so they. They're pirates of a sort. But the the made that we need to know about this guy. Is that sexy pirates You know a it depends on what you're into something out there for everyone and in Francisco's a big town. I mean it's all on the table incident in San Francisco. Red Light district. They say that is what they say. But the most important thing to know about this guy. This barbary coast character. Fifty fifty is that he literally made a living by letting people beat the SNOT. Got Out of him for money That's a weird. That's a weird gig to meet. You know what that feels like. That feels like an occupation. Someone would have in a French. Art House. Film assured does yeah. You've seen that film Casey. You know I can't think of any French. Art House films off the top of my head. However there's a unrealized harmony? Korean project called fight harm where he went out on the street with a hidden camera and just tried to go people into beating the crap out of him wow okay and he filmed like two or three fights. I think he ended up in jail. One time and And then decided the film was like impossible to complete because he was going to be dead by the time Senator Casey on the case always always. Today I learned something. What do you know about about your neighbors? What do they want? Who Do they love? Are they good neighbors to you. Are you a good neighbor to them. Neighbors are people live close to each other. They're able to talk with each other and be with each. And that's what you and Mr Rogers invited each of us to be his neighbor in his neighborhood. We learned how to be kind how to respect each other. He told us he liked us. Just that's the way we are. I'm Carla Wallace host of a new podcast called finding fred from iheartmedia and fatherly. I'm curious about how the spirit of Mister Roger's neighborhood can help us figure out how to be good neighbors in a world. That so often seems chaotic and violent and divided. That you have lots of neighbors that you play with the checkout finding Fred on the iheartradio APP apple podcasts or wherever you listen yes so it turns out this show is a hit and soon birth is going on tour across the West Coast host and she also has an open invitation to any men in the audience to try to wrestle her and she generally knocks them out. Yeah Yeah I mean. She's the heavy no pun intended. Oh yeah he'll he'll is better the heels the bad guy in wrestling okay. Yeah that makes sense yeah. She's you know she's the big ticket day got so she's a little beyond. She's in very NICI and way she she. She is beyond good and evil of wrestling. GotTa stop with these needs references anyhow. There's one more twist love. I don't even really a twist. Because it's what we kind of expected her to do. She tells her manager that our suitcase has a false bottom. So it's got a hidden compartment in that compartment. She says contains ten thousand dollars worth of Canadian bonds and thousands of dollars in jewelry. She says you handle handle the sale for me and they negotiate over the next few days how to move these Johnson this jewelry and while they're doing that Bertha is repeatedly borrowing in just small sums of money from her manager from foster. Yeah so the guy that gave her a new lease on life the ability to kind of go straight she ultimately totally betrayed him. Yeah Yeah Con. Sound you big time. So he agrees that he'll payer sixteen hundred dollars for the trunk but before doing so he sneaks into her room and their air foster discovers that the false bottom was itself false. It was a fake fake bottom so she burned that bridge. Looks like she earned a lot of bridges but to her. She said that she didn't care about the money she made. From the CON- jobs. She said she gave it away to needy people but the records show that was also a lie like many con artists. She just robbed everyone she could and she kept as much as she could. And you know all through this research I was like Gosh I wanNA see. This is a movie and it's It could be a possibility one of my favorite comedians. And from one of the only podcast that I listen to How did this get made Paul? Scheer has been seriously considering turning this into film He refers to her as a bad ass con woman who was not conventionally attractive and then he cites the New York Times referring to her As Bertha is a stout gross looking woman. And it's difficult to imagine how she succeeded in snaring so many victims by appeal to their confidence I for one would love love to see Paul Scheer Tackle tackle this film agreed and I know that we are all collectively on the edge of our seats here wondering if we can hear more about fifty goofy who I would like to see played by Willem Dafoe In this in this film one hundred percent He was born in Berlin. His name was burkhart. Got Bored Berlin as Leonard. Or Leon bore chart. That's right and really became part of the San Francisco Vaudeville scene starting at eight hundred eighty four.

We tried to get inspiration from all over Mexico and found and exhibits in that Moselle, their the popularity Mexico City, and they had an exhibit specifically of the history of glass in Mexico. We found very beautiful a lot of working puffy carry bottles in a lot of work in the traditional handing grading method of Pepita at Beata, meaning small seeds. Yes, we took that idea and work with a local Mexican bottle producer to produce a antique decanters, but may modern and all of these done by hand in addition to the glass itself, which has this Pepita engraving on it's also each hand signed can you describe that because we're a small batch producer?

But can you describe the guy they plant and how you make use of it? Most people think that I got as cactus is not a cactus. A sexually belongs to the sickle and family, and he's actually closely related to the leelee. It's really a very noble plant in Latin. It means admire -able and noble and the plant is a plant that takes eight to twelve years in average to be ready to be harvested, and what you're looking for in the plant is you're looking to keep to harvest your plans when they have the most concentration of sugar reduction in the heart of the plants, and then you ferment that and and or you take the sap from that heart. That's correct. You said it takes eight to ten years for the plant to grow. And that's why it's my understanding a lot of tequila have other sugars in it because the harvesters don't wanna wait eight to ten years, and yet your tequila has only the garbage sugar. Yeah. I mean, we only produce one hundred percent tug Ave, we are going on the route of producing very small batches that have ex- very strict attention to detail to be able to stand on the shelf with categories that have been in the luxury segment for very long time. Incidentally, the flowers of the plant are pollinated by a bat. Can you explain that? There's the plant is pretty incredible. It has a diversity of ways of reproduction the plant actually clones itself from its route and grossly Hoiles that then grow around the plants, and you wait on average one or two years to actually take the willow and then planted in anew field that is most traditional way of in our category of actually reproducing the plants. If you let the plant grow, it's stem, which is a fifteen to twenty feet long stem that grows very beautiful white flower at the end, those that is that is a planned us pollinated by bots. Do you have a guy plant in your apartment? I don't have an I've tried it. But the plant released looking for the right temperature one of the most important factors is a night time climates because he's a MAC type plant that does it for to this at nighttime.

"Bertha now identify as a trans man most of the time i just want to blend in and fly under the radar without people knowing that i'm trans unlucky enough to have had access to hormones as well as top surgery so i look mail and pass as one when i walk around in society most of the time people have no idea that i'm trans which feels safe and empowering to me in my personal relationships i much more open my close friends can pretty much asked me anything and i encourage it they've asked me all sorts of questions i've even shown a couple dick picks to my closest friends the most important thing is that i already have a relationship with them and trust that they are being genuine if i don't have a trusting relationship with someone in the asked me personal questions i'm much less likely to answer if someone comes off as aggressive or creepy i'll say that i'm not comfortable with the question and we'll tell them to look to the internet for the answer when it comes to sex i'm very comfortable with my body and the parts i have if we have a connection and might get physical with each other that would be a good time to ask about my body and honestly that's really the only time someone needs to know that information i've had some really amusing experiences where the person is totally into my body and have had amazing sacks i've also had some ridiculous experiences that have turned me off completely from a person these are some examples of really bad questions i've got non dating websites will you show me that pussy o kind of plumbing oh have you had the surgery all of these make my stomach turn.

"bertha" Discussed on Harry Potter and the Sacred Text

"Civic casper before we end thing conversation i'm just curious if you see something engendered around the fact that nobody is going to look for bertha ends i'm wondering f lido bagman is signaling some sort of masculinity of leg cingress win like people either find their way back or they don't and i'm curious if she were a man if he would have sent people out to look for her you know there is a conversation last summer about why it is that when blonde white women go missing it becomes like national news but when women of color go missing you can just never hear about it and i think that again it's about assumptions of like will culturally this makes sense for this kind of person to disappear and how untrue that is and how incredibly bigoted and dangerous and violent those racial engendered assumptions are the cultural assumptions that we make about each other based on completely arbitrary things like race and gender have such catastrophic impact and again i just really think if we had been looking for bertha jerkins faster it is entirely possible the volta more would not have been able to rise again if we were to question our own assumptions as a society and when we look away from certain crimes against certain people i think we would be able to interrupt cycles that impact all of us so much earlier and we should be doing these things for their own sakes we should be looking for birth that to look for birth and not because it also impacts men and we should be carrying about women of color disappearing because they are humans not because it impacts white people but the fact that we don't see our fates is intrinsically linked to one another.
