"Sports good news right now. The new york knickerbockers are up seventy eight to fifty seven over the detroit pistons if they hold on tonight. The knicks will be over five hundred. What a season. It's been an out of every team right now that we've seen. I am most impressed with the new york. Knicks had eddie. Lee wilkins on with me. A couple of weeks ago and we spoke nick's basketball and what a turn around. The season has been coming into this year the expectations you wanna call limited. You want to call them non existent you ebbing. It was just again. We're coming in. It was going to be another. Disaster is season at the garden. The nice thing is now for some people about two thousand people. You'll be able to travel to madison square garden and see these guys play. And hopefully the fans being in the stands. We'll give him a little lift now. My question for you is taking a look at this roster. Julius randle all star player this year averaging twenty three point four points a game is he legit superstar. Can you build around him. Air the knicks. Not when we let's say season started thought to superstar players away. Are one superstar player away from being an elite team and that all right maybe a little premature. But i think that's where you have to go to and looking at this roster. I mean guys are playing great and then you'll quickly been a godsend for them the first time that we might actually have a legit young point guard in For the new york knicks for a long time. Since maybe charlie ward barrett's been playing a lot better. He seems to be coming into his own. Is he going be at elite player. I don't think so I see barrett as a great. Maybe third fourth player on the team. He's playing much better. He's evolving he's growing Bulak right now you getting what you can add it. How long are you going to be here. Nobody knows Same with a lot of this roster so if you looked and i said it earlier in the season there is about three players that mattered and now we have four with emmanuel quickly. So it's barrett reggie Sorry barrett quigley Obviously lovie toppin. Mitch robinson that is your base. Julius randle of this new york knicks team. And they're playing. Well obviously robinson out for another few weeks Nerlens noel stepping in the injury. Taj gibson right now..

"Or what point did they look to make you know if they don't win this year. Is it a world series or bus for him. Right now is just like them that much. It doesn't exist anymore. In the franchise the way george steinbrenner acting Hal is not how steinbrenner's yet georgia's youngest son who's been writing a team since two thousand eight He he's just not cut from that bowl you you're never going to get a world series or bust mantra okay. It comes out before a season And not playoff. Losses are created equal. you can lose and your manager might not have made any decisions that were backfired and you just got out play or you know you had a you know your three. Starting pitchers three starting got hurt right before the playoffs. And so then you lost so to say oh he could be on. The hot seat can can. I envision a scenario where he is on the hot seat. I can But i think it's very. It's very unlikely to predict in march. Our team might news in the playoffs. And how they affect the manager. You know there's any number of thousand things that could impact team and how they lose and why and why they lost And so you know and it's just you know bottom hal. Steinbrenner loves there and boom by loves aaron. Boone and you know if they win ninety five games and losing the division series. I don't think that's going to change I in latin boom does something that blows into a big public relations nightmare that would force the teams that you know i to make some kind of change and something like that would have nothing to do necessarily baseball. You know i'm talking about something that would baresi organization find difficult. I hard to imagine something that aren't doing could do to cause mass so You know i know. That's been speculated on. And i i i've seen some of that stuff and isn't impossible. Nothing's impossible. I've been doing this too long. To say you know to use a never is an absolute But i would be very very very surprised to see a scenario that would resolve their losing his job after the season. I know i let you go. Get going to give me one player under the radar. That is going to step up or that. We should be looking for this season for the yankees. I don't think he's necessarily an under the radar type of guy but he not been able to to stay healthy. No repeat But i think aaron hicks potentially could have a real big season for the yankees this year. I think he's you know. I think he's going to be able to stay healthy. I think if he does get you know five hundred at bats and he said the other day when we were talking to him if he gets five hundred to six hundred bats and things he'll be thirty plus home run guy And i think that's actually a possibility..

"It's been like we had shutdowns mascot mascot mascot The restaurants here. There's no entertainment going on so when you saw those outbreaks And and it was considering the amount of travel. How many guys are playing are on a major league baseball roster It was amazing that there wasn't a full outbreak. But were these guys. Actually leaving the ballpark and being careful like how was it getting. Because that's what a lot of the talk was. Oh this guy went out you know. Oh i'm in florida.

They followed the guidelines and so You know you had I think it was a oldest chapman. Tested positive coming into camp last year. but then you know he never experienced any symptoms and he joins two or three days after spring training to Started up again early july There's one or two other guys. Obviously the extent the two minor leaguers right off the bat you remember in mid march landed a type positive and and there was a fear that there'd be a widespread. You know wildfire would take off like wildfire across their minor leagues. That never happened So you know. Look i i the the yankee guys and i think the proof is in the the fact that they didn't have any outbreaks did what what was spelled out for them to do And i would say by and large based on the evidence that that was pretty much the case across the sport you heard a lot of complaining about it behind the scenes But you know not one hundred percent but you know i would say percents. Plus of the guys across across the sport Did what they were supposed to that. eric sorry. We're gonna take a quick break. Can you stick around with us for a little while longer.

"Year. I think everyone thinks that's that's inevitable and it probably is Because the players association and the owners are going to go to war over riot things. And i think it's going to be difficult to avoid a work stoppage. But what's always incredible to me. Is that you see. These franchises values skyrocket billions and billions and billions of dollars. And somehow the players don't deserve any of that in terms of the public sphere and that they should just be happy to get paid anything to play a kids game and that is the prevailing attitude when these things are generally talked about. How can you complain about getting pay anything to play kids games because people watch on television and they think it's easy in a way that when they see a great singer perform onstage or they see a great actor performing a movie. They don't watch that it's to do that if suitably they know that they can't for some reason when they watch mcgillion butcher third base. They think 'cause they played in high school that they could make that play. I guarantee you you okay You know i i was. I was a decent summer league player to okay. Whatever mcgowan do is twenty times. The fielder that that i could ever be ceiling a major league baseball.

"Much. I'm going to take questions to be kind of one person. Delphic oracle here. I think I'm going to start with one question. Which is a one niner which said? Murphy's stout organise question mark or to to the question. I have to tab apologize to the question. I belong to an extremely small and advertised a minority in Ireland. I've never taken a drink in my life. Maybe it's as I said it's not visible arch constituency. So I really. I really don't know but you know know I know that you know probably When I was young you know get Guinness always called the White House not not. Murphy's isn't a a great start but I think that you know they used to say which. I'm sure it's nonsense. That Guinness was made out of Liffey. Water all the rationalizations the dubliners had for drinking. And so probably being a DUBLINER I. I'm sure I'd say give us you know. Forty is the greatest challenge facing women today. How has nice small question here? That house world changed for women since you started writing. Well I mean. That's a very a very subjective thing mean I think I I would have said this today. This is a long narrative in Ireland especially Ireland had when I was very young inequitable and notorious legislation against women. I mean women could not sit on a jury in art and when I was twenty less they held property and only two percent of Irish women Held property you women in Ireland were fired from the public service. The day that got married all of that went to the European Court and was changed but I do remember a twenty going home. I joined the movement and saying to my father. Why why can women not not sit on juries? And he was with my mother. My mother was leaned very much towards women and he said why. Do Women want to sit on Juries. So my mother said don't don't worry about your father's answer she said. I was in Paris and Man said to me. Women are too beautiful to vote. You know so French View. Anyway we we. We had come a long journey for thank you. We're to come a long journey in Ireland to have the equality. The United States had for a very long time and did the British hat after the commissions of the Twenties and thirties. And I think understandable reasons for that we were small country. We had had a struggle but if we were against colonnade them we couldn't call an is part of our own. People was not logical. So I I think that the greatest challenge for women strangely enough having settled that the greatest challenge for Women Today in Ireland and I shouldn't speak about anywhere else and I certainly should not speak about. The United States is the challenge of for young men and young women in Ireland. Ireland has become a prosperous country in European terms. And you know one of the things. We most had great phrase that we were community bound together by imaginative possessions. And we were and what we had was not visible in terms of those things but we had those great great great things you know the story and the language and the people and Beyond Price. If we lose those things we will really not have anything else. Becoming a rich city is not really a great idea of Ireland. You know there are plenty of others that are going to be better richer bigger but being arish and holding onto a past that. We never disowned. Even though those people were defenseless they were our own people. If we lose that then we will lose exactly what made us Irish. And so the young man I think women in Ireland have to recognize that in this tide of prosperity. You know we run a risk of losing who we not just what we have but we are and that would be the challenge of that generation. I think and a very different challenge from when we were young. You know this is a interesting says. Is it essential for for young poet? Tha Master Poetic Forms. No is the short answer to that. It's not I mean it's essential for young poet to find their voice. Maybe if you find if you know poetic forms you might feel you have some choices along the way but that's not certain that you won't have them even if you don't so some people do very well. I learned a lot of poetic forms when I was younger. Maybe they gave me a feeling of bit more choice but I ended up probably the same as I would have been so. I don't think anything is necessary for young poet to learn as a piece of knowledge but is essential for young poet to find the voice that part you. They have to do how they find that that. That's different in every culture does it does. In every culture has eight distance that is map apple between writing poems and being a poet and people have to find that for themselves. And every cartwright and I think maybe the you're not going to harm yourself if you learn how to write a villain out but I don't think you're going to solve all your problems either. Many many children and teenagers hide their differences when they are discriminated against or teased. Why do you think encountering? Ntr Your sentiment increased your identification with your heritage as complicated as an interesting question. I went to school in Incorrect when I was six years of age I left artem. My father went to to hang onto was a diplomat and it was a the elephant is time of very strong anti Irish sentiment in the city of London. And of course I hated that as a child though you never know how to identify it and you know the very first date. We went to this school. My sisters myself and we didn't know much about Britain and new enough. I think but but the very first day my sister was asked in class you know why is Henry? The eighth called the eighth and she said because he had a wives so very unpopular. Answer you know the teacher and you know they didn't like I mean if I went back and I think I would take compassionate with that but I didn't at the time and I do remember I use the word event. Which is the artist usage? The English sound and I said you know I am going to do that. And the teacher said to me. You're not in Ireland now and so. I don't know that I would take that to the interesting second part of the question and say you know did it. Make me identify with my heritage. I probably know my heritage but certainly made me decide entity with the British which is one part of it. Which do you feel? Is Most prevalent in your poetry. Lyrical Narrative is very nice paragraph of William hates his essays in which he makes a difference between the British and Irish Poetic tradition as beautiful sentence about British poetry and says you know it is a narrative and contemporary poetry. You know the remembers the Thames Valley. And maybe the Irish more lyric and more in crisis time. I know that generalizations poetry's are very difficult and there's been a very rich traffic between British Nour's poetry on that but probably I think of myself more as a straightforward lyric poet that I would think of myself as an hour so port next question recently presented your poem the death of reason to my students and ask them to compare it to. Yates us the second coming in. What ways do you see yourself continuing the poetic tradition established by Yates and ways? You feel you've departed from it or changed well is by might alone way. My favorite poet and Yates was the person who in many ways Put IRISH POETRY. Set it forward on its path and wrote this great poetry of increasing power even when he felt powerless but he was a high formalist and I do think that ours. Poetry has become a little bit more hybrid more conversational more negotiating with slightly different or more open form from him but he remains the great spirit and the great example but not always a popular poet. And the city was an Anglo Irish. The Irish are not strong on making their writers like that. But but I do remember my father as I said was civil seventy worked in. It house which looks directly out on Stephen's Green. And William. Yates was well known to in deter. She's to always go every day. And Walk and Stephen Screen and my father said to me you know. I used to see he said working and Stephen Screen all the time I said what was that like. He said one of his feet turned in. Was Dublin response. Some William yes. There is one more P. Please explain what it means to make free with the past rather than through sculpture. Why do you write so few dramatic? Monologues I leave maybe one off but I think when you go to the past and reconstructed maybe you do it at risk mu to it and you do it in. Syntax. Thank.

It's a very prosperous modern state. We once were people who who's people left our shores and largely came to your shores. And you know I lived in the United States as a child in New York for for a few years. Three years went when I was twelve and my mother took great care to point out to me the places the wharfs where the Irish had come in from those boats and you know at one point in Ireland as we were on our way to become a modern state. It struck me that we might forget those people or wonder forget those people who left us and went somewhere else and yet those people who some of the best of us were were themselves of great instruction to memory and to example. I didn't think we could or should forget them. And you know I'm the Pori was started by a comment.

"Can of coke her plate of Uncut Fruit Pomegranate. How did I forget it? She could have come home and been safe. An ended the story an all our heartbroken searching but she reached out a hand plucked pomegranate. She put her hand and pulled down the French for apple and the noise of stone and the proof that even in the place of death at the heart of Legend in the midst of rocks full of an shed tears. Ready to be diamonds by the time. The story was told a child can be hungry. I could warn her. There's still a chance. The rain is cold. The road is flint colored. The suburb has cars and cable television. The veil stars are above ground. It is another world but what else can mother give her daughter? But such beautiful rifts. In time if I defer the grief I will diminish the gift. The legend will be hurt as well as mine. She will enter it as I have. She will wake up. She will hold the papery flush skin in her hand and her lips and I will say nothing. The idea of past that history troubled me probably most because when I grew up my mother in many ways was and remains you know my great hero and my mother came from a hot press background in Ireland background which was fortunately becoming rarer even then her mother did indeed die. The woman who died at thirty one died and a fever award in one thousand nine hundred nine and she was her mother's fifth child last child and she was orphaned by that debt was a poor family and her father drowned in the Bay of Biscay and I read a very brief piece of prose after. This develops this a little bit more but my mother was very reluctant to talk about the past and she was very reluctant to to speak about the things that we think of as ordinary family anecdotes. She had very little time for it. But my my grandfather one point did drawn the Baptist guy but before that he was a sea captain here had one of his own ships that he sailed out at the point and I asked my mother about them and she told me this. Just small tiny thing the to know wherever my grandfather's ship docked her mother would go to meet it because she feared the women at the ports so it wasn't a lot of family history but it was something that stuck in my mind. This is a poem. This is a punk lava. Cameo LAVA CAMEO is a broach. That was very common in Victorian Times. Those great fashion for volcanic things and it really was a face kind of cut in lava and cut in the material of destruction. And because of that something about this poem was there for me to question. How much right do we have to go back to the past? How much do we have to go back to the complicated place? Which was the present of other people and yet we long to go back there. We long to know who those people were since we came from them. And this prompts called come in. I like this story. My grandfather was a sea captain. My grandmother always met him when his ship dot? She feared the women at the ports except that it is not a story. More a rumor or folk memory something thrown up once in a random conversation a hint merely if I say woodland lace for her skirt and Crepe for her blouse in the neck of which is pinned a cameo carved out of black volcanic rock and if I make her pace. The coke Docs stopping to take down her power song as a gust catches the Silk Tassels of it. Then consider this. There is a way of making free with the past pastiche of what is real and what is not which can only be justified if you think of it not a sculpture but syntax a structure extrinsic to meaning which uncovers the inner secret of it. She will die at thirty one. In a fever ward he will drown nine years later in the Bay of Biscay they will never even be Sepia and so I put down the Gangplank. Now between the ship on the ground in the story late afternoon has become evening. They kiss once their hands touch briefly. Please look at me. I want to say to her. Show me the obduracy of an art which can arrest profile in the flux of Hell in catastrophe on my mother had as I said no time parts or wherever for my interest in the past or history and she really never spoke to me and accept these very chance from ox-like get another cameo. She never never spoke to me about it. And she lived really blessedly. Narrow says I said was just a great hero of mine and I graded Marta. But Y- time and again. I tried to get her to talk about her own past and she never did but one evening you know. When my children were very small I went down to visit her and she she lived very near us and we were in conversation and then suddenly as if a door sprang open. She told me this totally bizarre story about her grandfather. My great grandfather and I was so taken aback by the story and so may is done I said to her is that true and she said I don't know so but you know I said the story comes with not warning attached to it but nevertheless it represents that huge zone between the past and the history which is just unverifiable in any possible way but I loved the story and here it is. My grandmother came from a family of Miller's sometime after the famine they left the small fishing town of Milford in Donegal hard-pressed as they were they must still have missed the idiot. Synchronicity of their own. Place the Amal Roy Bay in February. Light the main street with its steep. Climb up the side of a hill and they moved east and south to the town of Dundalk and they're the business failed and they moved again to lead. Trim Harsh County where her father? My grandfather was born. It was him that legend Clung and the way I build the legend. Now is the way heard from mother out of rumor. I'm fossil fact and half memory. He was a small man compact and Saturnine in the of many western Irish people. If he was anything like his son who I met for a few hours years ago he had eloquent and strained features and a fine profile and co set. An obstinate is and there was something strained pinched about at all which kept well away from beauty. He grew up in lead trim and sometime in his early manhood. I imagined the early eighteen seventies. He fell in love with a local guard. I know so little about her or about him that I have to become the fictional interventionist here and say that she was of course winning and expressive and true to him and that he loved her stubbornly but the was an obstacle she was a younger sister and in the manner of fables and indeed of the Irish countryside. Her oldest sister was playing and deserving and on no account to be slighted by having the younger girl Mary first so it went around. The parents insisted he should offer his suit to the older sister. They might have offered him inducements. But I doubted the juice moments could only have been local custom and Iron Decorum. The one no dowries. These were poor people reduced in circumstance by difficult century. Utterly vulnerable to the sickness of a heifer or a father exchange the price of wheat they would have brought to bear on him the influence of local opinion and approval. He must marry the older girl that was and he was implacable. He would be the younger one and that was that the younger girl retained love for him and he for her finally not. The story gets quick gets on steady fills with unknown passage of time and event the impasse yielded. Love triumphed and the wedding day was set. I have no documentaries ticket for this. I do have my grandmother's March. Typically but not this one in any case the cold signatures of the witnesses and the SACRISTON could do justice to the amend. The Wedding Day came. It seems safe to imagine a small Greenwich Church and the middle of town and and the weather more than nightly gray and overcast. Maybe the turn out a bit more than usual. Because of the notoriety of the whole thing struggle of wills old gossip curiosity incurred on that account. The Bright Crame dressed in white heavily failed the vows taken and repeated and said by the bride and groom the priest pronounce the men and wife and for a single moment. It must have seemed to him. That some wound of ill luck and misadventure in his own. Life had undergone a miraculous healing. Then he lifted her veil. It was not the facie. Laughed Convention had prevailed. The family had smuggled in the old up paying a girl and he was bound to her by Iron Convention and legality for the rest of his life but they had thirteen children so this a new book is called domestic violence and the title poem has that Pawn and it registers not not just domestic tragedy but also the fever chart in the country of the private and the public in one thousand nine hundred seventies when violence fell on Airland You know we had certainly hoped that our differences would be our strength and they weren't. They divided people and night after night that decade. We saw the worst things of all this mold. Funerals Day after day after day on television. Small Funerals Irish people killing people the nightmare of any country new. We lived at that time in house with two small children. When I went back in this poem you know I I wanted to go back to that moment when you live in a time. Violence and when the private life seems to be a shelter from it but of course. It's not you know. Those things are bound together by terrible and strong bonds domestic violence. It was winter lunar wet at dusk. Pewter seedlings became one night orphans. Please to meet you meet to please. You said the butcher's sign in the window and the village. Everything changed the year that we got married and after that we moved out to the suburbs. How young we were. How ignorant how ready to think the only history was our own and there was a couple who quarreled into the night that voices high and sharp. Nothing is ever entirely right and the lives of those who love each other and in that season suddenly our island broke out. It's old source for or to see. We saw them to. We stood there wondering how the Solta Horizons and the Dublin Hills and the rivers table mountains. Viking marshes we thought we knew had been made to shiver into our ancient twelve by fifteen television which gave him back as gray grayer tears and killings killings killings then moonlight colored funerals. Nothing we sad not then not later fathomed or it is is wrong in the lives of those who hate each other and if the providence of memory is only that remember not a tone and if I can be safe in the week spring light in that kitchen then why is there another kitchen spring light always darkening in it and a woman to a man over and over. What else could we have done? We failed on moment or a moment. Failed US The Times were granted in size and we were small. Why do I write that when I don't believe it we lived? Our lives were happy. State as one children were born and raised here and gone including ours as for that couple. Did we ever find out who they were and did we want to? I think we knew. I think we always knew when to read a poem which I wrote really. It's called an elegy for my mother in which she scarcely appears and it's really about the time of her death. I remembered you know. My mother had as I think. A lot of people had a great love for the domestic implements of kitchen. You know the the wooden clothes horse that you know you stood against the fire and you put tea cloths on. You know the way that you had a singing kettle. Non Electric Cattle and all of those things disappeared. They just went and we have no environmentalism for lost objects. We don't care about them. We replace them and in some ways you know it was those beautiful dumb things that I thought about when my my mother died and she in in some ways had been there champion and I wanted to make a note of that analogy if my mother in which she scarcely appears I knew we had to grieve for the animals along time ago. Weep FOR THEM. Pity them. I knew it was ours. Strange human duty to write their allergies after we arrange their demise. I was young then and able for the paradox. I am older now and ready with the question. What happened to them all? I'm into those old dumb implements which have no is to plead with us like there's no claim to make us like. There's I mean there was a singing kettle. I want to know why no one tagged its neck or ring the tin base of its extinct design or Crouch to hear it's rising Shriek in winter or wrote it down with the birds and that blue sleeves air torn away with the trees that sheltered them and there were brass fire dogs which lay out all evening.

Stefan Krasowski on Visiting All 193 UN Countries
"Steffan Krzyzewski come from Minnesota in the US. I've I just recently gotten to one ninety three. UN countries which is why we're talking today. You bring me back for follow up. But I'm happy to be here I don't remember that comment but I'm glad to have you back and curious to hear a little bit of your final part of the journey and I just wanted overview a couple of different different things to remind the listener Remind us again. Why the love of travel was the catalyst what spurred your love for expiration in discovery like many many in my boat there? There's a collecting background. Where you you get interested in collecting different things and I did not travel much coach growing up? My parents not not active travelers so it was my high school junior year trip to China. We had started studying Chinese Back in fifth grade grade and went to China and traveled around and it was just eye-popping exciting thrilling and so as soon as I could I went to college and University of Pennsylvania Wharton School Philadelphia but spent semesters in Shanghai and Hong Kong and then moved to China right after graduating college. And the you've been in Hong Kong. I arranged at ride classes three days a week and just every every Wednesday night I would head the Shenzhen. See what buster overnight train rain was leaving in hop somewhere new and got addicted traveling in China going every province in in the country. And then step-by-step expanding out to the region and the wider world pulled out of curiosity. You didn't come from travel family. What's your family? Think of what you've done what you've accomplished in the travel world world totally supportive. Do they think you're a little crazy. What's going on when you get together for Thanksgiving? Oh I've got one wonderful parents sand and Brother who's a doctor and a scientist who's WHO's very different although we both Studied Chinese at the the same starting and he studied in China in highschool so my parents Prince of been extremely big about education that they work worked to put put us into the best schools that that we could get ourselves into an and get that environment and Mother reading to me every night Even when I developed an interest in books like James Bond or Tarzan in bucks as a as a first or second grader that would have pretty racy stuff she wouldn't our through and and Be Happy to expose me to to new ideas. A Matt so the circumstances weren't for for them to be traveling a huge amount growing up but they're always been very supportive and and As as both my brother and I got older than the I was living in China my parents did start traveling and in quite a quite a lot of times they visited me. TRAVELLED AROUND DOWN SO my father's a adult of million miler now so it's it's certainly not not anti travel in out of curiosity whose commander and his better yours or your brother. I should hope it's me because I still go back several times a year and actively do stuff with China and he hasn't significantly kept up with it since since going into medical school. I mean I know he did say at the time that Learning Anatomy class was pretty easy Z.. For him when when he had been studying Chinese characters for some time but when he was when he was at his best to you. As far beyond me reading classical Chinese the It's it's it's much more different than than say Latin. It was never a spoken language. The written Classical texts are incredibly hard. Pardon any was brilliant that I can. I can get through the first few sentences of the Dow ditching and and that which is which is hard enough but He was he was way beyond me as scholar. Could use to your brother in and Stephan. What was that inflection point? So you explain how you really were taking advantage of semesters abroad in Hong Kong China the region starting to explore like crazy. What was the moment when you decided to chase when ninety three? What was that light bulb moment? It was. It was somewhere around Azerbaijan Georgia Armenia trip that I took from China on one one of the holiday weeks that that China has an at that point I was had been to just about every country in Asia and and was loving it than in seeing the possibility awesome -bility of doing much more in learning learning about frequent flyer programs which was making some of these possible Places like the caucuses were connected to China. Southern routes in Chai from China and Could use my north west and then later when they became Delta Delta Miles on on these is trips so things that I thought were previously unattainable for time or cost reasons were suddenly feasible and and And I never I never had an interest to be a full time traveler even if I had unlimited resources for that I push myself very hard on trips. The I've I've taken several three week trips Only wash twice longer. Once a four week I think in the that was in Central and west Africa and a five week around the Pacific and I was so exhausted after three weeks of pushing myself that that is the the long term travel all thing wouldn't wouldn't fit for me and and professionally isn't isn't where my interest lies and and certainly not as it is where my marriage marriage would be taking me so the I like short intense trips. It but was there a day where you sat around and counted up the country's on the map happen you saw that you're at fifty or a hundred and then you read an article. What was that final? Push where you said okay. I've done this now. I can do that. There was more of a a different back back to that other by John. Looked at within. The cost was to get to Nakhichevan which is a separate part of other by John that on the Traveler Century Club list as a separate territory and it was it now? It's quite easy to visit in affordable all and more flights at that point it was it was looking that expensive and I decided I'm not going to get addicted to a crazy list like that and subsequently I've ended knocked divide and gotten addicted to that list but it was It wasn't it was it was Wasn't necessarily one day except perhaps perhaps when I got got to eat team more. So that was the last country in Asia that I hadn't been to and did say I went to to all this trouble to get east team or deal with Indonesian and flights which wonderful delightful country in many ways except traveling Logistically is Is One where a lot of things. Don't go to plan and and So once I got to East Timor as I'm going for the UN Stephan. You're last on counting countries actually November of twenty sixteen eighteen. And you're at one hundred eighty six countries at that point. But you didn't finish your you analyst until August of Twenty nineteen in for some travelers. That's a lifetime Some travelers as we know have done all one hundred ninety three during that same time period. So you took your time to finish off the last seven countries I want to focus on four of your final five two of them. I found pretty surprising in two. I didn't so your final countries was Italy. How did Italy early of all countries end up being one of your last countries? There were three that I was saving to the end of Italy Greece and Turkey and and Mainly not not so much animus. I'm really WANNA have a big party or something. It wasn't that it's it's I'm history is my favorite subject fascinated with ancient history. And all of those three are are are so special in central to to world history and world world civilizations that I wanted to to save them to really enjoy lavish in terms of time and and Destinations destinations trips to go. So that that was the original thinking and then What will get into why I got stuck on on a couple of others and so then finally I just? I just couldn't wait. These are wonderful places that I'll visit multiple times in my life but That that that roughly was the idea As well as the flip side is after seeing so many ancient Roman ruins in North Africa. That have this kind of thinking. Why should I go to Italy and see the crowds? But you know that's just that's just one of the ten thousand different things that are fantastic by deadly to to go see show as a history buff. You mentioned Italy Turkey Greece. What's a highlight for you? Visiting those countries by all of all of the above. I mean it's it's just incredible. How you You could pretty pick pick any point on the map and see multiple layers of of incredible history I mean what I. I walked off the plane Lina in Milan. I had booked the trip like a week before last minute and I can only get one one ticket to the last temptation Or the Last Supper or the last supper painting and and I had like an hour and fifteen minutes from touchdown in Milan Malpensa to to getting getting getting in the door picked up a rental car drove as far as I could into the city abandoned the car where other people were illegally. Ugly parks hopped on the subway and guide in and saw that and and So Italy I've really I've really just started. I've been a bit in the North's I've I've seen the Vatican again but I haven't properly visited row. I've been around Sicily different territories in. It's it's just pick your pick your time in history Greece more specifically the ancient In the ancient era I mean I just gets it gets incredible to. You're just driving down the road and you see the road sign Its Tab obeys in the ancient Also known as thieves. And now it's just a a scruffy scruffy town but just pull off the road and spend the night there because these names out of history are incredible and and the answer Turkey Turkey. I took a A road trip from von the famous Lake van in the Armenian Indian churches in the East and drove all the way across the country The the more or less southern route through the Kurdish areas than around the Jian coast and So many eras of history from the first Essentially I city of multi-level housing and that goes back back. Thousands of years all the way up to the modern times. I mean it's just I just couldn't i. I had take UNESCO sites off the list because there's only so many you you can see in a day it's It's incredible and Turkey actually. has this fantastic museum pass system where you can get the countrywide one or you can get one. That's for a week league or are some regional ones arrest Boland's and the prices are so low and every mega site in the countries included. It's it's not like many countries where the tour pass includes everything except the one really must see

K. A. Jesse ins who wore the shoes in a very specific sporting event that we have talked about and episodes past yes we were referring to the nineteen thirty six summer Olympics which were held in Berlin if you check out our earlier episode then you notice the Jesse Owens as a returning guest to our show Jesse Owens was a track and field star and given that the docile brothers were already benefiting from the **** party's use of sports as a propaganda tool they saw the summer Olympics as an opportunity to go into the international sphere and get recognition outside of here is an outside of Germany so they pushed and pushed to get docile shoes on Jesse Owens all they really seem to care about in the Olympics in fact was getting Jesse ins to wear the shoes he did wear docile shoes anyone four gold medals which again if you look at the way the shoes are constructed is crazy because there you're not supposed to use your heel you're just supposed to like do you get a run on your toes and the plan worked Owens for metals gave the company huge amounts of international attention and athletes from all across Europe started making their way to this village hares which is pretty tiny whenever they passed through Germany saying I gotta get a pair of one of those das their brothers shoes yeah and from that the original design we talk about from nineteen twenty eight this one was much improved because it actually left out the metal plate and it had very small islets where the and thin laces which help to reduce the weight of the shoe which was really important for sprinting absolutely in fact instead of either had to get really creative with materials because instead of using that metal plate they used something called vegetable tanned bottom leather or Vash leather in that significantly reduce the weight so really forward thinking design work going into these shoes that continued to carry on specifically with with ID yeah I look a good as we can see neither these guys are perfect but all these innovations in the world of footwear our bodies I want to highlight that because I feel like that's very important adi was the brains of the operation well the at this point their success is bringing them to a more money more problems sort of situation their relationship is becoming strained and as the company is succeeding Germany is inching closer to war and the brothers are experiencing a failure in their relationship one that a huge animosity that extends to their wives their children to their parents there are other siblings because they did have other siblings yeah weirdly both families live together in the same villa which seemed less than ideal considering that every source we've looked into has their wives just fighting like cats and dogs between each other they were not peacemaking not at all and I'm sure that tension carried over into the brothers relationship when you're trying to defend your wife in some sort of spat and take take their side it probably soured relations between the brothers and let's not forget moms in the picture too yeah that's right so in nineteen forty RD gets the call he is asked to serve in the German military and he does for about three months but somehow he is able to get an exemption and you'll hear difference historians speculate that this could have been due to Rudy's effort to may be back in here so he was pulling some strings to get his brother out to go back to the shoe business and we'll probably never know for sure whether he was able to get that exemption due to Rudy but we do know that whatever happens it did not alleviate the tension between the families as as the war kicked into full swing V. tensions between the families got worse and worse until they had a tipping point yeah this is one of the most divisive bits of the story there there are various accounts of this but it is something that comes up repeatedly and supposedly in nineteen forty three when there was an allied air raid on head so the brothers and their families found themselves sharing a bomb shelter and supposedly Adolf made a comment that Rudy was never able to shake because he interpreted as being a direct insult to his family so as the story goes eight off in hearing the sound of the approaching R. A. F. forces Royal Air Force British planes said something to the effect of there come those pig dogs again here come those by the dirty but they're back again exactly two which Rudy heard that as a insult blob that he and his family as they got into the shelter and this was either a misunderstanding or grudge that both brothers would carry throughout their lives a refused to reconcile later that year this nineteen forty three Rudy himself gets called up for military service and at this point she suspects that already had schemes to get him sent to the front to edge him out of the business and he serves from nineteen forty three to nineteen forty five in nineteen forty five Rudy desserts is post in Poland he flees just ahead of the on coming Russian army and she goes back to here so he hurriedly gets a friend of his who is a doctor to declare him unfit for military service due to a frozen foot but then this try frozen foot yeah frozen foot is that like a twisted ankle kind of bites you know what he was in a hurry is that like bone spurs yeah it's just something to make you unable to walk I see and so this doesn't pass muster with the Gestapo the arrest Rudi Dassler for desertion and he blames that on RD two but here's the thing we don't know whether eight off the ostler got his brother purposely sent into military service but we do have pretty compelling circumstantial reports the both RD and his wife snatched autumn yeah I I see I see reference in several places one of which is in a fortune magazine article called the hatred and bitterness behind two of the world's most popular brands by Omar Akhtar to a an American investigative report that was found and that's in fortune right yes that's in fortune and so he's arrested first for dessert is post by the Gestapo and then when he's released by the Gestapo he's arrested by the allies on suspicion of working for the Gestapo and the American investigative report that you mention knoll does give truth to his claims and while he was languishing wasting away in a POW camp it off tonsillar is very hard at work he's rebuilding the business and he is making a killing selling shoes selling quote unquote Jesse and shoes two American soldiers who all know about the legendary summer Olympics and all want to have the shoes and it feels to me ma'am and this is speculating but tell me tell me if you think this is true back this is a really early example of this kind of endorsement culture yeah in sporting goods and and where and any kind of apparel right I I really do feel like this is kind of the model center for that whole thing and this is something that the company would continue to lean heavily into and it would become another sore spot between the brothers as time went on absolutely we should also point out that couldn't find anything about Jesse Owens getting any percentage of sales so I think that was a I think those rough spot for him because you get a made million was a different time right and it was like a cutting edge stuff they were almost like yeah just give me the shoes so I can perform better because other companies weren't making anything that was quite up to this level of innovation right right so these guys at first their personalities complement one another then their relationships became strained now they hate each other a little and a bore one another and they can barely stand each other's presence which is weird because they.

Jesse Anne's who wore the shoes in a very specific sporting event that we have talked about and episodes past yes we were referring to the nineteen thirty six summer Olympics which were held in Berlin if you check out our earlier episode then you notice the Jesse Owens as a returning guest to our show Jesse Owens was a track and field star and given that the docile brothers were already benefiting from the **** party's use of sports as a propaganda tool they saw the summer Olympics as an opportunity to go into the international sphere and get recognition outside of here is an outside of Germany so they push in pushed to get docile shoes on Jesse Owens all they really seem to care about in the Olympics in fact was getting Jesse Owens to wear the shoes he did wear docile issues anyone four gold medals which again if you look at the way the shoes are constructed is crazy because there you're not supposed to use your heel you're just supposed to like do you get a run on your toes and the plan worked Owens four medals gave the company huge amounts of international attention and athletes from all across Europe started making their way to this village hares so which is pretty tiny whenever they passed through Germany saying I gotta get a pair of one of those docile our brother shoes yeah and from that the original design we talked about from nineteen twenty eight this one was much improved because it actually left out the metal plate and it had very small islets where the and thin laces which help to reduce the weight of the issue which was really important for sprinting absolutely in fact instead of you had to get really creative with materials because instead of using that metal plate they used something called vegetable tanned bottom leather or Vash leather in that significantly reduce the weight so really forward thinking design work going into these shoes that continued to carry on specifically with with ID yeah I look again as we can see neither these guys are perfect but all these innovations in the world of footwear our bodies I want to highlight that because I feel like that's very important adi was the brains of the operation well that at this point their success is bringing them to a more money more problems sort of situation their relationship is becoming strained and as the company is succeeding Germany is inching closer to war and the brothers are experiencing a failure in their relationship one that a huge animosity that extends to their wives their children and their parents there are other siblings because they did have other siblings yeah weirdly both families live together in the same villa with seem less than ideal considering that every source we've looked into has their wives just fighting like cats and dogs between each other they were a peacemaker not at all and I'm sure that tension carried over into the brothers relationship when you're trying to defend your wife in some sort of was bad and take take their side it probably soured relations between the brothers and let's not forget moms in the picture too yeah that's right so in nineteen forty RD gets the call he is asked to serve in the German military and he does for about three months but somehow he is able to get an exemption and you'll hear different historians speculate that this could have been due to Rudy's efforts may be back in here so he was pulling some strings to get his brother out to go back to the shoe business and we'll probably never know for sure whether he was able to get that exemption due to Rudy but we do know that whatever happens it did not alleviate the tension between the families as as the war kicked into full swing the tensions between the families got worse and worse until they had a tipping point yeah this is one of the most divisive bits of the story there there are various accounts of this but it is something that comes up repeatedly and supposedly in nineteen forty three when there was an allied air raid on here so the brothers and their families found themselves sharing a bomb shelter and supposedly Adolf made a comment that Rudy was never able to shake because he interpreted as being a direct insult to his family so as the story goes eight off in hearing the sound of the approaching R. A. F. forces Royal Air Force British planes said something to the effect there come those pay dogs again here come those by the dirty but you're back again exactly two which Rudy heard that as a insult blob that he and his family as they got into the shelter and this was either a misunderstanding or grudge that both brothers would carry throughout their lives and refused to reconcile later that year this nineteen forty three Rudy himself gets called up for military service and at this point she suspects that already had schemes to get him sent to the front to edge him out of the business and he serves from nineteen forty three to nineteen forty five in nineteen forty five Rudy deserts his post in Poland he flees just ahead of the on coming Russian army and he goes back to here so he hurriedly gets a friend of his who is a doctor to declare him unfit for military service due to a frozen foot but then this try frozen foot yeah frozen foot is that like a twisted ankle kind of fights you know what he was in a hurry is that like bone spurs yeah it's just something to make you unable to walk I see and so this doesn't pass muster with the Gestapo the arrest Rudi Dassler for desertion and he blames that on RD two but here's the thing we don't know whether eight off das slur got his brother purposely sent into military service but we do have pretty compelling circumstantial reports the both RD and his wife snatched autumn yeah I I see I see reference in several places one of which is in a fortune magazine article called the hatred and bitterness behind two of the world's most popular brands by Omar Akhtar into a an American investigative report that was found and that's in fortune right S. as in fortune and so he's arrested first for dessert is posed by the Gestapo and then when he's released by the Gestapo he's arrested by the allies a suspicion of working for the Gestapo and that American investigative report that you mention knoll does give truth to his claims and while he was languishing wasted away in a POW camp it off tonsillar is very hard at work he's rebuilding the business and he is making a killing selling shoes selling quote unquote Jesse and shoes two American soldiers who all know about the legendary summer Olympics and all want to have the shoes and it feels to me may minimus is speculating but tell me tell me if you think this is true that this is a really early example of this kind of endorsement culture yeah and sporting goods and and where and any kind of apparel right I really do feel like this is kind of the models that are for that whole thing and this is something that the companies would continue to lean heavily into and it would become another sore spot between the brothers as time went on absolutely we should also point out that I couldn't find anything about Jesse Owens getting any percentage of sales so I think that was a I think those rough spot for him because he could have made million was a different time right and it was like cutting edge stuff they were almost like yeah just give me the shoes so I can perform better because other companies weren't making anything that was quite up to this level of innovation right right so these guys at first their personalities complement one another then their relationships became strained now they hate each other a little of and a bore one another and they can barely stand each other's presence which is weird because they still.
