"Waist-deep water. We're walking on dry marsh bottom and there's no water at the station wear usually water. Persists drought is decimating. Almost the entire klamath river basin. Some twelve to fifteen thousand square miles an area approaching the size of the entirety of massachusetts and connecticut combined and across those more than nine million acres. Everyone and everything is suffering. This is on point. Magnet chalker bardy and today. We're going to travel downstream from the klamath headwaters to the pacific. And the cautionary tale. It has for everyone about how drought may be permanently changing ways of life. We'll start today with alex. Shorts a reporter in the klamath river basin for herald and news as part of report for america. He joins us from klamath falls oregon. Alex welcome hi. Thanks for having me. Can you first describe a little bit. About what the klamath river basin is like if we were hiking in the basin or or boating or fishing there. What would we see sure. Well it starts it. People sort of call it an upside down river basin sort of in the term that you have a stretched just below the headwaters streams that kind of meanders over flatland. It's pretty shallow. Slow and warm and then it gets progressively wilder as the reaches the coast. So in other you know in other basins. You'd sort of expect water quality impacts to occur near the bottom of the watershed Not the top. So it's sort of flipped around up here And that has some pretty serious implications for water quality in the basin and just ecosystem health in general. But you know you have the upper basin which is mostly high desert and almost all the precipitation here falls as snow in the winter. The lower basin is rugged mountains and even temperate rainforests at some points. Basically bigfoot country In the last few miles of the river even run through the redwoods. And so there's many species found here that exist nowhere else on earth And at some of the most remote country in the lower forty eight i would say it's spectacularly important for all the people who live there and for the ecosystems as you're saying and spectacularly beautiful as well i was reading that it contains some of the largest wetlands west of the mississippi to call the everglades of the west. So tell us What our water conditions like everywhere in the basin so In the upper basin we have a lot of issues with nutrient loading So mostly phosphorus and that contributes to algae outbreaks in upper klamath lake which seriously Degrade the water quality of the lake. that sort of that same water eventually enters the klamath river There's also some reservoirs on the klamath river that are lake concentrated versions of upper klamath lake. That have even worse. Algae outbreaks in a really warm up the water And so that has a consequences for the fish downstream And the you know common thing here. This year is that there's just less water all around And so you know when you have lower water levels and lower flows you have warmer water And more concentrations of those nutrients in all that algae so the impacts of that less water all around is what we're going to try and understand today all along the length of the klamath river but can you. Can you let me know. Let us know alex usually. What does that river. And the basin that it that it drains. What does the all that water make. Possible there sure so. Numerous indigenous tribes have called the base in home since time immemorial and the thing pretty much. They all have in common as fishing so salmon salmon where this huge life force that transporting nutrients throughout the basin but some tribes fish more local species. The cop two which you'll hear more about later But currently there's a the federally recognized tribes include the klamath tribes of oregon which is actually confederation of three ethnic groups in the upper basin the crew tribe in the middle of the basin and the hookah valley and the europe tribes in the lower reaches of the river Tribal members also traditionally hunt birds in game and gathered plants which also depend on water Then you also have farmers in a throughout the basin but The minute about half the farmland lies in the klamath irrigation project which is federal project that was established in nineteen o seven which takes at least or traditionally took at least three hundred thousand acre feet of water a from upper klamath lake in order to water crops like alfalfa potatoes onions mint and was pretty well known for its high quality of crops. But in you know in recent years drought has really damaged. That usually an who's in charge of water-management along the river so that would be the federal bureau of reclamation. There's this sort of half mile stretch Right at the bottom of upper klamath lake where there's a canal that diverts the main canal that diverts water to the klamath project. And then there's also a damn right there that regulates the level of the lake and releases water into the clinton river so that spot is probably the most contentious point in the entire basin every year. A reclamation has to adhere to requirements in biological opinions issued by other federal agencies. That are trying to Protect endangered species in the basin. And in years. Like this where. They're so little water. Even those species are fighting with each other for the war. Okay so alex wurz hang on here for just a second. Because as i mentioned we're gonna try and use this hour as of virtual trip downriver along along the klamath to really understand how.

It's octopus it's octopuses you could say pods but if you're going to step to us on latin plur owl's but it's latin and greek. I'm going to go ahead and ask you to Right into gas station tv. But i want you to focus on easing man's earlier nasa i wanna know that's correct. I mean people think that it's an extension of man man so like wolfman would be correct but no it's it's a family name out there the wolf men's like where are you going for dinner we're going over to the wolfman exactly having casserole casserole dog food casserole says will wolfman or like in a family like if some like if a father was upset with their son because the sun is like i want to be a musician father's like no man's are going back generations were all bricklayers basketball players basketball short. Yeah that's why But we'll man's have always been doing that. That's i don't know that convinced you. Can i ask you guys a question about octopus. yes so we. Obviously they're contemptuous of humans. Mankind disappointed disappointed. Having to fix the problem that we made right they've got a choose the outcomes of our sporting events for us. We can't even do it ourselves. Jesus christ open jars now that they know. How do you think octopuses have similar feelings about other creatures under the sea or do you think they're only really worried about land creatures. I think our live and let live until things get out of hand. I think humans have gotten out of hand then wants things are out of hand there. Live and let die exactly. Joe gans bond shit to push that something mount up regulators. You know they got. They got their fist out there. You're fucking poisoned. Yes yes but so maybe if there are creatures under the sea that also get out of hand Maybe they would also be like all right. We gotta get these shrimp in line. 'cause they're going to ask you this. What do you think after puts us. Think about squids him. They think they're stupid. They're fucking stupid. Compared to octopus his a squid is like a shitty octopus all day long. Yeah how do you. How do you think octopus feel about squids being so much more popular in the appetizer space. Oh yeah that's a good point. I think they're like makes a lotta sense. They're dumb dumb it's delicious. Yeah yeah i think we all know that's a truism when it comes to. I learned that from john taffer. 'cause i watched so much bar rescue. Yeah yeah they may not be smart but they say do you ever think that a A squid goes up to an octopus. He goes hey. Eight legs Guess what. I can chew fucking ink out of my butt and then and then the octopus is like i can turn into a rock. Yeah yeah. I think as soon as the squid goes up as lake Octopus look. I'm going to stop you right there. Whatever you're to say to me just said to me thirty seconds ago. And i didn't molest not time because it's not worth my time. Okay and then. It's like poop senator dole rock and the squids like we're the puck away. Where did it go so much. Better than is quentin tarantino problematic. Still much better. Are you gonna go to the are you gonna. Are you gonna frequent his We got what if a bigfoot had sunglasses boom. we're not even cassia. We don't even have to deal with that. Why does he does. He have extra sensitive. I look cool. We're not even dealing with that other shit. I do have a question about big yours again. Makes for it we've plural is the singular. But that's really my question. Am i the only one who always assumed that it was but one bigfoot on this animal i thought i thought it was like it like one of the things that had one big little. Maybe it's because i'm from the south on a big thing there. But i like in one little foot like dealer be yeah like a regular sized foot and then a big foot. It's up and it's like. Wow well this guy is remarkable. He's got a big foot or like one of those guys who only does upper body exercise but it's lateral foot. Big foot skips right foot day like it should be big. Beat it does. You're right what is wrong. We've been saying this whole time. And i think yeah i think your your initial kind of mishearing of bigfoot or misinterpretation of bigfoot. I guess my issue with that is that like if this guy does have one huge foot in one small foot. Why has he been evading us so easily. He's embarrassed say emotionally. Why exactly what is yeah I don't think he would be so evasive he ad that's true that's true. I'll say this elisa. I'm from a lot closer than you to bigfoot country. I'm from northern california in really only a few hours drive into the bigfoot mountains. I have to. I did not think that big flight had one big flat in one small foot. Though now that i think about that. That could be a possibility. I always just assumed that it was sort of like sort of like if an orca came out of the water in stood on its tail so a single huge foot. Oh okay so you thought it had one big foot but then that was it. Yeah but the end. Jabba jeopardize style see. I don't know that for sure nolan's confirmed it but i've seen photographs. That look real. Do whales have little teeny tiny hair on them because they are mammals. Think so i think they do. Have a little teeny tiny hairs. I think that's part of their classification. So maybe there is some sort of evolutionary path here in what you're describing from oil to bigfoot. Yeah interesting i do. I don't know if this changes things. But i do think the whales only have hair on their nuts. I don't know if there's like changes. Whales are out here swang and nuts. Yeah but it's a very small penises. Right yeah yeah. That's what they say hung. These are huge huge area nuts and this is something like i. I mean. I hear this a lot. Socially so like this the stem on a double cherry. Yeah yeah and honestly see from what i have seen or and or heard a feel like it would not be a tiny. Didn't were it not for the balls. Like i feel like it's almost an optical like if they were like regular or suitable balls you'd be like well that stats are regular rail penis but as it is it's not presented. Well you know. i think. I'm i think i'm putting together the pieces i think i know why dolphins are so smug because they're pitas than wail peter. You have like terrified this..

"That podcast sent me looking to learn more about Holthaus. I soon found that for years he had plotted to shoot the man his sexually assaulted him as a child. Before we dive in a quick warning that this conversation includes references to childhood trauma and sexual assault. Holthaus is revenge scheme wasn't just a fantasy. As he revealed in a 2000 and four article called Stalking the Boogie Man. He had bought a gun, and he had worked out an alibi. His plan was derailed when his parents discovered his childhood journal in which he had written about the attack perpetrated by the son of family friends. At that point hold houses, rape was no longer secret. Instead of killing his monster, Holt has decided to confront him. Holthouse wrote about how his attacker admitted the rape but swore that hold house was his only victim, hoping that was true Hold house did not name his assailant in that first article, but everything changed when he learned that his rapist was in fact, a serial predator. At that point hotel start Another article outing the Boogeyman and named his attacker whole test now sees his childhood trauma as one impetus behind his career as an investigative reporter. He's practiced some pretty guns, so journalism hanging out with street gangs and going undercover with neo Nazis. He also started producing documentaries, including the Amazon Series, Lorena I'm a talking head in that one since I was the first reporter to interview Lorena Bobbitt, but I didn't meet whole test when I sat for that series Holthaus. This newest documentary project is the Blue Series Sask Watch, which came out in April. 1993 whole test had briefly worked on a pot farm in Mendocino County in Northern California. That's Bigfoot country, And while he was there, Holthaus caught wind of a triple homicide. That had been blamed on a Sasquatch. The series follows hold houses, He tries to figure out who really committed the murders. Or if they even happened at all. You know, unmasking bad guys became a theme of your life before you unmasked your bad guy. Yeah, right. I mean, I was I was sexually assaulted when I was seven years old. So I, uh, I I was, um, sort of forced to understand very early on that. That not only is not everybody who they purport to be, but the the world is at least as I saw it from trials. Eyes was a much more dangerous and threatening place than adults were. Leading me to believe this, So I I saw it. And so that's sort of like distrust of authority and distrust of like the veneer of the world. Uh, and the desire to sort of peel it back. That was that was it's obvious to me now, uh, was a real motivators for me. But I wasn't consciously aware of that for the first, you know, 10 years or so that was practicing journalism. You did some very gun. So journalism. You went undercover with skinheads and, uh, you know, took chances. And I thought it was interesting that you you wrote after you published your piece. I'm quoting you. I I found I wasn't comfortable taking the same sort of risks I had been before I started to put more value on my own life than I had before. And that I thought was an interesting turn in the way you felt in the aftermath of unmasking this monster. Yeah, it was sort of expecting after I wrote my piece stalking the boogeyman. Which was about my experiences in childhood sex assault survivor that as expecting, like instant catharsis, and this feeling of like an immense weight being lifted off my mental shoulders, and that's not at all what happened, but I did. I did. It was a couple of things when I started to, like, get a lot of affirmation from fellow survivors. That were applauding me, I guess for my courage, but I didn't feel like it was a courageous act. It just felt to me like writing something that I'd always wanted to write. But after I wrote the piece, I just I got a lot of positive energy back from people that I that I didn't know. And then also in short order, I I fell in love with the woman that would become my wife and for the first time I don't know how to put this. But it's like my life mattered to me and to others in a way that I hadn't been cognizant of. Up to that point. I started to dial back the The amount of risk that I was willing to undertake, or at least the reasons for mistaking. It was no longer sort of like wild and unfocused, like at the risk that started to take them very deliberately, like working undercover and the neo Nazi Underworld, So I still willing to put myself at risk, but it had to be. It had to have a reason beyond just the pure gonzo of it From that. I think I have the sequence a little bit out of order that its continued to do that You were more careful. I mean, you're obviously a planner. It's clear and you know, with respect to that before you wrote the piece. You have spent literal years planning to kill and not like, figuratively. Only planning to literally murder this person like you bought a gun. You got a silencer. I mean, you had the gun tampered with, so that the bullet would not be so easy to trace back to the weapon. Yeah, that's all accurate. Yeah, I was playing around with the I worked at a newspaper at the time, the westward weekly paper that had You know, a card entry security system. So I was playing around with where security cameras were in the building and how I could use that card key entry system to sort of establish that we used to The pretense of an alibi for myself. So you did plan this and then you wrote, And you didn't name the guy in the first piece, But you were then subsequently arrest I think for stalking and I'm just trying to make sure I've got the sequence of events, right? You have it, right? Yeah, The piece came out. It was perhaps, unfortunately titled stalking the Boogie man, and after it came out, his wife filed a criminal complaint and I was arrested for stalking, but nothing significant happened to you in terms of legal repercussions. No, there was a bit of a media storm, and I think the county attorney couldn't dump the case fast enough, and just to be clear at this point. I think he would confronted him and he admitted the assault. But he had claimed you were the only one which It's like, you know, he meant many times that stories I've done. I always say it's always a pattern. It's never one off. It's always always and you ultimately discovered that But maybe in that period it was still the big lie about one time. Who knows why Why did I do this? I don't know that kind of thing. Yeah, and I knew better. I knew better when he was telling me that, but I wanted to believe it. You know, I wanted to believe that I was the only person that he'd ever raped when they were a child. And I was willing to just give him just enough of the benefit of the doubt that I withheld his name in the original essay. Yes, and then ultimately you didn't And you named him. It's just I mean, I guess this is the way the legal system works that, uh, seem to have been of the same that kind of pattern And as you note in your pieces, these people tend to be Extremely active and many, many, many victims, and yet he's outside the reach of the law. Yeah, I mean, I know that I likely here he's probably had dozens of victims by this point. Yeah, he's deep. He's deep into his fifties at this point, so it was like we still active as a predator and likely has, you know around 50 victims, Um Yeah. Terrible, hard knowledge. That's hard knowledge to carry very hard. Yeah, it's hard. When you're about justice and unmasking the monster. The monster gets unmasked. And then the monster keeps walking around the streets, you know? That's right. We're gonna We're gonna do a hard turn to how you go for your You're a journalist. You are investigative journalists and the doctor move into documentaries. I think you appeared. And I, doc about cockfighting. If I've got this right and through that you sort of made a segue into documentaries. Yeah, That's right. Yeah, in 2000 at the time, it was this kid that was in his doing a senior project for film school at University of Southern California. And his dad was good friends with a mentor mine, a writer named Chuck Baden in Tucson..

Yes the bigfoot a spokesperson for the national parks law enforcement. Rangers responded at two. Am the incident involved. A person with a firearm. At one of the parks back country campsites backcountry campsite in kentucky. I'm going to say this was alcohol induced and there no bigfoot involved. That's just my hunch.

On their tent telling them to wake the hell up the couple got up exited their tent and they found a man in his young son approaching and they had guns according to bradman. Explain that something had destroyed the campsite that they were sleeping and that he kept hearing strange sounds so he's going to investigate because this was quote bigfoot country. Yeah that's all. I need to hear and then i'm outta there. You got guns and you're going to investigate something that was walking around in your campsite that you assume with bigfoot okay. Hey we're going to go now. Bigfoot countries so you assume it's a bear you okay. I mean you assume it's a foot and not a bear by bad you okay. You just assume it's bear sir. Have you heard of comes razor. The simplest explanation comes first first. Bears are all over the place man. They're even in florida. I just learned had no idea until the few shows ago. I've had bear encounters while camping at one evening where the bear was so close to my ten while i was sleeping at night then a nearly wet myself right there in the sleeping bag got up in the morning to find. The cooler was smashed. I mean these things. Go through your shit man. They're hungry you. Would you assume it's a bigfoot dummy. Well brad's girlfriend. Claims she heard sounds. The man reportedly showed a couple of his gun told told them if they heard gunshots. They should probably run into him. Yeah and we've been drinking so if you hear gunshots you really want to run right because i don't shoot straight after i've had three bottles of bourbon you know. Hey i'm camping psalm. At least three he. If you hear gunshots you should run brad. And his girlfriend returned to the tent set about five to ten minutes later. They heard the first gunshot. That was one of a few. That's time to pack up and leave backwoods camping in kentucky. The man and his son returned to the couple's ten. We're back here. We are with our guns. We're going to shoot you now. They stated that bigfoot actually emerged from the woods they saw the bigfoot. It approached them so they fired the weapon. Due to the bizarre circumstances brad said he and his girlfriend immediately packed up and left the damn say of course. Of course you did is crazy people with guns an alcohol obviously claiming they saw bigfoot. How the incident remains under investigation by park law enforcement officials. No need no need to investigate guys. Don't spend any more resources on this situation. Just go through the trash of that man and his son where you will find shock on shells and just count the bottles of liquor and case.

It restores it to balance out a home you a static level partner, actually smokable when we weigh when we fight, we smokable of DVD, and that helps mitigate things a lot. That's that's a really important point, cause all joking aside. I mean, the best way that I have ever described CBD for you for myself, especially is it just takes the edge off? You know, it just allows you to be a little bit more receptive to some other ideas. You know some more conversations, your waves or open kind of thing. I mean, that's how I see it. You know, and and and and, you know, to your point about you. I know you're passionate about full spectrum, you know, and I wanted to get into that because I know that there's a lot of products out there. Some of them are CBD. Isolate this, that the other we know if they go to technical, But why full spectrum? So research have actually shown that full spectrum, which is all of the plants, cannabinoids and Turpin's being president is not. It doesn't taper off in effect and a dose dependent way and what that means is isolate on Lee worked up until a certain point say, you take 100 MG of isolates. You feel in effect you could take 200. It's gonna be the same level of effect. It's not going to increase with a full spectrum extract. It increases those dependent Lee so there's no cap on the therapeutic effect. If you take 50 That'll be one thing. If you take 100, you'll have more positive effects. Okay. Thank you. Thank you. It was the time for the midway. So you're just joining us?
