Hey there Just had a quick silly question All the intro One of the intros. They're the big dude. Bella headed dude. That looks like a georgia fan. Or maybe a player ex player where you grab his cue ball and then you grab his. Who is it fell. A that is who is goldberg. The famous wrestler from from the went to the university of georgia. Oh look for mayor. But i just couldn't put the name to or figure out. Yeah i'm trying. I'm trying to remember a. He played georgia to that. Was we did that in athens a couple years ago maybe two years ago where he was a very famous professional wrestler and the idea was just to come play around. I think the The crew on the show got a little carried. Got a little scared. When i decided to to try to all the guy live on the air. And what's funny is considering the way differential condition differential and strength differential. I mean he literally touched touch my shoulder. And i thought i thought it had did. It had broken guys so strong. It was a little bit scary to think about what i was doing but we had a good time and i i survived it without any marks long. Reach for you to get them to tap head. The craziest thing i did was when i came off the bus. I literally stuck my hand. The camera guy was there and this was this was improvised. I didn't just put my hand up. Shoved the camera guy back and he was in shock that i would do something that aggressive but yeah there it is. I think we're showing it on the screen right now. but Yeah i i. I've got an goldberg over. The years mean bill goldberg. I'm trying to remember. I mean he was a really good player i think he thought maybe he could play professionally but He he he made a very wise movies made hundreds of millions of dollars wrestling. But thanks for asking me. I remember that vividly. Let's check out Who we got here about. Frank is up next. Hey frank go right ahead hi there. Good afternoon i would talk about. Yeah we're doing great franko. What's going on with my sister. Dina was arguing about the quarterback for alabama right. Are you quarterback well. I don't really think that's a. That's a challenging question when we get after this after after spring. I think it's going to be bryce young who i really think separated himself from the rest of the pack. Thanks for the call. Tell dana it's going to be brush. Young adrian is up next. I go right ahead of adrian. You're on the air a paul. You're the region. I pay my cable bill. Bud thank you so much i appreciate. You wanna talk about the pack. You know the conversation you had earlier and to me. They have fallen into that category. Mr irrelevant what. Demographic is the average fan of pack. Pakistan's you you asked me about the sec. Air demographic defense here were passionate the acc the same way but parents. Who are they going to have to think outside the box. Like more non conference games with the rest of the power of and get some more exposure back. Yeah i i don't think it can be done. I mean the only way that it happens is if somehow an oregon breakthrough through or maybe washington or southern cal and it has a magical season. It can happen. I don't see it happening. Tally taking on at ucla. You would think that was maybe a turning point for it comes down to money at advertising and raging if you go back a couple of years. They had chip kelly. They had peterson at washington. I mean it looked like they were really catching up with everyone. And you can't win with helton as your coach. Southern cal he is you need. You need it. Urban meyer or or someone of that shrank when somebody that has marquee. And i'm chip kelly. Ame had better show something this year. I thought he was one of the best coaches around and he has been disaster. Absolutely you know. Look what he's done in oregon and and you know you know who's missing a golden opportunity for mediocrity and being successful jim harbaugh she'd go back to to the pac twelve because he did he get a contract extension. I i wish you. I'll speak for myself in you. I wish we could all be as mediocre as he has and say we are going to pay you. We're gonna pay six or seven million a year and don't don't you worry about anything you don't have to win them. Show up and be rude to the reporters lucky. Do yeah all right. I appreciate it man in. Love your show buddy. Hey thank you thank you very much. We're going to take a break. More of our more of your phone calls at eight five five two four two seven two eight five. Were coming back with much much more. You're listening to the paul finebaum. Show podcast welcome back. We will continue a getting ready for the draft and for the college football season in just a few minutes with more gas right now. Your phone calls and a c- mitch has arrived on the scene. What's up mitch uncle paul. Hey there. are you doing today. Midget a beautiful day and i am happy. To be employed in live share the same as citrus and. I'm happy to have me on on the type of job. But i want to off five bucks now. Fussing with finebaum sounds like the name of a good show. Where do you start. Show out picking davo because he is a wigner you would have to agree with me on that if this was the one and he made a stapler well when i hear his voice i just assume he's whining. I don't even listen to hear what he said. I understood what you're saying about the never say. Never think tablet form. Oh okay well. I officially i officially take back my my calling dabble wigner for for only for today. Yeah because he does agree with. But i wanted to ask okay. Black people so much stock in spring football spring football games. You're playing against your teammate. Here's why mitch. We are football fan. We are we we wait for spring ball and then we wait for the end of spring ball. Some of us Get to go to the games and take our family and we we watch it intensely and other not others watch it on television and it's a game so you know i i'm getting my ultimate point. You're right it doesn't mean anything but it's all we have at the moment. I know if like does for north under yards against it. That doesn't mean he's throw nine hundred yards against alabama no dozen. But that's for another day. Just say that kind of surprises me that people get so wound up. The they found juicer. Star in the spring football they get fired up about that. Mitch the same raisin you get annoyed when i purposely take shots at davos. So you'll call you. Wish there was an muller. Say he's going to leave florida's they'll take pros i don. I would be very wise to go anywhere where he currently is abbas said that if if if if proper in the perfect scenario cain if he were to say no now and in a year from now two years from now any become liar. Well here's why you say that. Mitch because in reality you never know and i say that for this reason dabo sweeney likes this president and he likes his athletic director. He may get a total jerk in their next as the athletic director and he may not like him and the president may change. I ever people go through that in every industry and you understand it and whether you're doing a great job or terrible job if you have a bad boss or horrible ball. Sounds like a movie it. It affects you and you know so you have to head your bets. You never say never. It's a cliche. I hate it. But i don't know if i've ever said it before but nobody's ever asked me so. Nfl teams go. Pay him nine million dollars a year. I don't think he would be that great anywhere in the nfl but it doesn't matter he's not going anywhere for the time being accurate with you on that are actually. I don't think he'd be a good. Nfl anyway you have a good day. Enjoy the rest of the phone calls. And i will talk to you later. Thank you very much. Tom is up next. Hey tom what's going on tape.

Baby, You're A Plastic Bag (with Ian Lockwood)
"Wow unhappy. Our the show where we bitch about all the things we love to hate everything a week. I'm your host Matt Bell By. I'm here in my closet recording far far away from my producer Berry go hi, Mary Hi Matt. How's your quarantine going this week? By I feel like we're in deep enough now. That like nothing has changed cool cool. I started I started like swiping more on the APPS, trying to get back and it's. It's refreshing to get back to my favorite hobby, which is being ignored by men. Super Healthy. I knew I had therapy and I was like. It doesn't help that like my main thing. Is that I get obsessed too quickly and now there's nothing to distract me so. Just GonNa do some great spiraling anyway. Totally, healthy totally normal. How's your week going well? I am leaving the city for a tiny bit to visit some family Alex's family in Boston and New Hampshire so we we've been quarantined. You're gonNA, have some Chowder Yup Yup. We're GONNA. Have some doubt. Claim. You know that's all we're going to do. Let's. About Boston. In order to do that. We Got Cova tests which I can only describe as having a pep smear for your nose beautiful. Well I wish you the best. result. The closest I can get to relate as weighing for my act scores. Applying to college I'm just excited to record from different closet. It's going to be so exciting. Yeah, this corner of my room is disgusting. I really need to start cleaning. Anyway. Let's get into today's episode coming up today, and we're going to kick things off with worse things. I chat about the most ridiculous worse news of the week after that we're diamond deep into fireworks, because it's technically the week after fourth of July and I'm sick of them, okay? And then we've got comedian writer and performer and Lockwood on the pot as our guest complainer, and finally we got our chasers including our new segment through better white people where we highlight anti-racism resources and actions that we can all take, so let's get into. Let's do it. Let's light up the night sky and star that shower. Oh right works things first. Let's talk about the worst news of the week I! Police and Louisiana able to capture a man who dove into a fish tank at a bass shop. Not Not just busy felt like it, but more importantly it because he was celebrating getting two thousand likes on Tiktok I. Mean as someone who grew up going to the shut aquarium, and seeing people go into that central tank with all the sharks and fish and stuff like it does seem like a pretty sick time. I don't feel like nature like nothing underwater. We shouldn't be allowed to get that close to. There's a reason we can't breath underwater, so we shouldn't be there. Is that what you're getting at what I'm saying is? Aquarium should be illegal and buy insurance social bass pro shops. I remember I wasn't a part of the there was some like senior in college and northwestern got banned from going to the aquarium, because some like Frat, Bro through beer bottle into one of the tanks. Sorry that that fish looks like it wanted to party. Yeah what? What's One? Beer GonNa do to a fish okay I. think he'll be fine. He's not driving okay. Anyway. This man whose name is Kevin Wise. Okay irony my Ri-. Your name is your fate your, why is where it's written right into his birth certificate one day, this man will destroy a tank at a bass pro shop. Anyway he plunged into an indoor aquarium at a bass pro shop in Bossier city to follow through on a promise, he made to his followers on Tick Tock. He said if I got two thousand likes I would jump in the tank. I got more than that and I didn't WanNa be a liar. The man he's transparent, he follows through. He sets his goals and he. He doesn't let go of them. You know sure I mean yeah, he. He follow through on his goal. Here's the thing I say. Normalize abandoning your dream. Normalize letting go of bullshit goals. Even it all just say up. Two thousand likes is not enough likes to do something like jump into an aquarium at a bass pro shop. That's fair. The man said, but he will continue to make videos for his followers, but cautioned against doing similar quote spur of the moment pranks. Bertha moments if it'd been literally. Opposite of spur of the moment. You promised you would do it. You said a condition. Like literally moving on next a woman in Florida only in Florida. Is Filing a lawsuit against her neighbor seeking a paternity test for her goat hell yeah. Maury. Maure, this is exactly what we need Maury for. I! Don't know where that man has been I. Don't know if his show is still on, but we need. We need the paternity tests. I didn't even realize paternity tests existed in the real world. I thought they were just on Maury. which is only kind of a joke. Anyway, the woman who's named is Kris with a K. as in Karen is suing her neighbor heather over five Nigerian goats. Need Bella gee-gee. Rosie. Zelda and Margat. Wow al-Qaeda honestly amazing job in naming I mean two of them seemingly are named after Hadeed sisters. And I only barely know what that means. So it's, it's chill, okay? Anyway Kris with a K. as and Karen paid nine hundred dollars for these five goats. I don't really know much about retail value of goats, but that seems like a steal. It does seem like a pretty good deal. Nine hundred dollars for five goats. Yeah, but she made nine hundred dollars for the five goes believing that they were registered with the American dairy. Go Association, which gives them a higher value than unregistered goats. Okay, you gotta get your goats registered people if anybody is listening, and you have some unregistered go roaming around. Just, no, he's not as valuable. Okay, anyway, Heather. The woman who sold the goats, said that the father go was registered, but then the goat association was like actually. We've never even heard of heather before. Not An active member, and so they denied this application to have the five baby goats registered i. don't exactly know what a paternity tests would accomplish in this case. Yeah, what? If that goat had not been registered confirming that that's the goat. Dad wouldn't do anything like what is that solve? That's why I'm confused. I don't know, but I'm not. I'm not a lawyer. Okay, so who fucking knowns I don't even. The fact that there is an entire American dairy association. There are. There is a bureaucracy behind the American goats. Is stunning to me. That is news that is breaking when people say breaking on twitter. Like I haven't read the same thing one hundred thousand times already. You're not breaking shit. Okay, we! We've all seen it. We all got the alert. Fuck off with your breaking. This is breaking news. There's an American dairy. Go Association. Send out the Boltons. Anyway. Next also in Florida. A Pizza Mambo. Yes a restaurant in West Palm. Beach was forced to close for a day last week. Which is already? Why are they even open to begin? With is in Florida like an epicenter right now. Yeah, absolutely, anyway, they were open I guess, but they were forced to close for a day after an inspection by the Florida Department of Business and professional regulation which discovered stashed in the restaurant's freezer in eighty pound dead Iguana. That's a big. Yeah. I don't think I realized how big a Guavas were! Why I don't think they're all that big I guess I didn't know they could get that big I. Don't know I think it's one of those things that they grow however big of area there in sure, this has been science with. An employee of Pizza Mambo told the South Florida Sun Sentinel that the guava was given as a personal gift to the owner. Unclear whether it was alive or dead at the time of gifting. And that it was stored in a separate for either away from the restaurants food, and that they did immediately throw it away after they were informed, it was a violation. I don't really know if you have to be told. You're breaking the the rule to know that you probably shouldn't keep a dead lizard with the rest of your food but I. Don't know who knows what I I. Guess you're. If you're keeping me any anywhere. It's all dead animal. Yeah, what's Pepperoni well? They did say that For some people go on, his are a delicacy in one company does make Guana sausages and Burgers, so maybe these people are fucking innovators and let them experiment for the better of pizza toppings across the nation. A. Guana sausage pizza would be the. Most obvious Florida food pro, probably ever the fact that they're snotty. Guan on every single pizzas served in in in Florida is kind of amazing I agree. An and finally over in the United Kingdom officials at the Queen's official ball balmoral bowel moral a state. This is like her some edge castle in Scotland. Sure Okay I've seen the crown. I know it's happening here. Officials at the Queen's summer. Castle are taking action after locals have taken to shitting and pissing all over the royal property. Down with the monarchy. So, because public toilets are closed during the coronavirus lockdown, some people have taken to blowing their insides out all over the outdoors near busy walkways, and your monuments staff at the fifty thousand Acre property in Aberdeenshire. Sure we're forced to tweet guidance last weekend on where and how visitors should go to the bathroom quote. If you need to P, please do so I just loved it? This is all coming from like at official Royal, account. Don't let me try to accent. This is official declaration of the Queen. If you need to be, please do so at least they me as from lock so streams. If you need to defecate, do so is four ways possible from buildings paths. Echo sees and farm, animals bury feces and shallow replace the term I think you really got it with paths. It went to strap. It went to straighten midwestern British. Yup Anyway people are just shitting and pissing everywhere. pugs open in the UK I. Don't understand I think we're. We are recording this before this coming weekend, but oh. Okay well listen if I had the choice between going to a pub right now or shitting outside of a Royal Castle guests which one I'm choosing. Both That's it for this week's. Whereas things I next we're diving deep. It's Y. fireworks are the worst. Take that Katy. Perry Deep dive deep. Deep Deep. Deep, deep, tidy, tidy, tidy time, the fourth of July has come and gone, but fireworks are still bursting even off. Fireworks should be illegal, literally three hundred sixty five days a year. Okay I'll say it. Fireworks have become a weapon. In new? York and I've ever when I'm sick of it. All I know is that fireworks are the bane of my existence and I i. just I feel like they're they're. They're loud in their stupid. Okay, though the premature ejaculation of visual entertainment, just just all Russian and no pleasure as far as I'm concerned. Katy Perry was actually insulting. You by calling you a firework if I'm being honest because you know what, I'd rather be a plastic bag, useful useful for carrying foodstuffs indestructible refuses to break down for Millennia. That's want to be not a fucking firework. That blows often lasts for three seconds I so we should really rethink that entire song that entire song should have been about plastic bags blowing in the wind. How Dash Insults plastic bags blowing the wind while fireworks out here? Terrorizing people I'm sick of it. So. This is why I hate fireworks I. Am sure I will be the first one to tell you this and I won't be the last, but I just need to get this out of the way nobody nobody wants to see your stupid fireworks video. Nobody ever in the history of both fireworks and visual recording has ever enjoyed a video of fireworks. Even the best video of fireworks is literal garbage, and if I. See even one more instagram story frame of a single firework. Where the firework is the focus of that shot, you will be blocked. I can't take it I. can't take it anymore. I don't care what time of the day I. don't care if you have the best camera. You just peeled off the little plastic from your brand new iphone twenty and it's guy the ability to follow that firework from ground to sky and capture. Everything is glistening spark of it. It's bullshit. Nobody wants to see it. There is no reason for it. The only good thing about fireworks is seeing it in person it. You could argue not on a camera next. People are always. Always like Oh, let's go see the fireworks show in. It's like it's not a fireworks show. Okay, it's Bob the town alcoholic. Who spent this much child? Support payment on a box of explosives and is firing them from the back of his pickup truck. Okay, you're all in danger. This is not a show. This is not entertainment business. Someone's Midlife crisis happening in front of you. My brother used to set off fireworks from our roof and our old house. He's fourteen years older so I was like very little when he would do this. And it truly is some of my scariest moments of my life I was like you should not be doing this because those are not safe and you're doing it off of the roof of our house, yeah! Yeah I should say I should probably say those point towards the beginning, which is, this is all colored by the fact that when I was little, my aunt's boyfriend this was like when I was very little. Nothing's ever good when you're. Anthropoid is involved. Anyone's I. Say this as an aunt who has a boyfriend. Yeah, he had his eyeball blown out from a firecracker. Actually as far as I remember, it wasn't his fault it. They were like at a campground or something someone from across the campground of fired off like one of those small like pop rocket things and it hit him in the eye, so it was like we're never fireworks would happen. My mom would have like a very specific example. Two point two to scare us. So sounds like it work and it worked yeah YEP. but truly I have thought about that for twenty something years. Now. It's brought to the forefront of my brain. And now we have something to talk about in therapy next week. Yup That's the thing though is like most redress. SUBURBIA outside of cities. It's just like most of the firework shows like some dude in his backyard, just putting the town endanger. Also they cost a shit load of money and there over at like five minutes I get more enjoyment of a pint of ice cream than I do from fireworks. I can make that last for hours just riding that way of. Just, peaks and crests of pleasure, eating a pint of ice cream, but fireworks. It's like that. Also yeah, literally, all fireworks are exactly the same. They've been the same year the same. There's been no advancement and firework technology in decades. It's not like you're seeing anything you've never seen before once. You see one firework show. It's like Okay I. Get it I've Seen I've seen them all. Also the fireworks that are supposed to look like shapes never actually look like the shapes that they're supposed to look like sorry. Oh, you went for a cowboy hat. It looks like a Blob, just like the rest of them. Okay, this is a blob show. There is only one time in my whole life where something where a firework looked like something and was extremely successful. Let me just paint the picture really quick so in. IN CHICAGO THIRD OF JULY GROWING UP I'd go to grant park, which is now millennium, Park, and ex RT, which is the radio station would sync up music with the fireworks show I think they work together I'm pretty sure it was not. It doesn't really matter the point is you would turn the radio on, and then you'd watch the fireworks in choreography to the music and one of the songs was drops of Jupiter. And, the firework looked like a planet, and it was the coolest thing. I ever saw with a firework and They can all be cancelled now because we did the best we can. I think I've seen one fireworks show. That was sinked to music the thing about sinking to music is that the the delay from the boom and then when you see the. The lights like that delayed never syncs up with the music, so it's really just the imagery, and then your brain gets confused. Yeah, it's literally the basics of thunder and lightning uh-huh. It doesn't make any fucking sense next. There's always always always some little kid and I. Know this because I. was that Little Kid who was like? Is this the grand finale? Is this the grand finale is best the grand finale? Do. You know what I'm talking about. Absolutely it's it's. It's the fireworks equivalent of. Are we there yet, right? Because there would always be. There's always that moment where there's like a big burst of fireworks and you think it's the end, but were just cock teasing you, which like that kid is annoying, but also the pacing of a fireworks show is almost never good. Yeah, because there's there's only two modes, it's either like one firework or like a thousand of them. Next, perhaps most importantly, they scare dogs. Do you feel you feel good by yourself? Mr Firework the my dog is here shaking and panting and having a dog panic attack. Also you could get your thrills. Is this what you wanted? One winter break in college. I went to Costa Rico with my family, and we were in like a house in the mountains, and there were fireworks going off, and the monkees were fucking screaming. And it was terrifying. Yeah, I think Fourth of July. It must be like peak season for Dog Benadryl Aka Benadryl. Moving on sparklers AK- hand-held fireworks, third, just hot chopsticks. Okay, and you can't even look at them for more than like one second because they that tiny pin of light is just searing into your cornea. There is no part of me that in joys, an activity that is based in fear. So sparklers, not a thing for me because he know what. I'm afraid of very hot fiery things. That I'm holding my hand that get closer to me as it goes on not a thing. I want to drop it, but if I drop it, drop it on my bare foot, and that's not good either also. Like the one thing you want do with sparklers is the one thing you shouldn't or I guess two things one. Put in your mouth and to run with it, and it's like it's just a sharp metal. Stick that's lit on fire. That you probably shouldn't run with. That is the thing though? Is that most most fireworks argest looking at bright light, and it's like okay. Let's face it the only thing I really WanNa do on Fourth of July is get wasted in e Tub of Potato Salad. And you're expecting me to focus on bright blinding flashing lights while my head is swimming, because it's full of alcohol and hot mayonnaise. None of this mixes it doesn't make sense. See Next I. Don't need things to go boom to have a good time. Okay, sometimes, you just want things not to go boom. I would argue that I actually need things not to go boom in order to have a good time. Yeah I came out to have a good time man, I'm honestly. There's too many booms for me right now. Fireworks really are just what teenage boy is fire at one another in the woods, instead of talking about their feelings. That's what they were invented for. Their were invented to blow stuff up so that teenage boys could do that instead of instead of finding out who they really are. Finally the only acceptable scenario for fireworks are fireworks that take the form of a terrifying dragon to scare the hobbits, celebrating Bilbo Baggins, one hundred eleventh birthday, and that set unless you're powerful wizard, who spends his free time terrorizing a bunch of innocent drunk whole people with flaming dragons than stop.

I mean we'll talk about all of the things, but there's a lot of like comedy show slash parties slash underground experimental craziness. Absolutely you know it's twenty twenty things move so fast these days you gotta get the slashes in important two things at once. It's not enough to be multi hyphen it anymore. You have to be a multi slash. Yes, it's very important so I try to bring that energy. Well. We like to start by a by asking. What is one thing you hate that? Everybody else loves. Yes. Okay, bear with me here. Okay, we're in for a ride on. A First Person Shooter Video Games. Okay, okay Not, as controversial as I was expecting I, feel like that is probably right now. Like not a bad thing to. Hey, well, it's because it's so. Are you a Gamer at all? Would you self described as a Gamer? No, the most intense I've gotten is like I missed a couple of days of work because of flappy bird back in twenty thirteen, because I got like it was it was. That's what I have like a very addictive personality, and so prevented myself from getting any type of gaming console in my apartment, because I I literally leave. Yeah, and did you save it on your phone for like years after he took it off the store? That's right well. There are some okay. I can, I can spend literally hours about flappy bird. 'cause they changed it. They changed at one point and made it like way more difficult, and then the guy was like fuck. I hate my own creation and then took it off the APP I know. There was a rumor also that like. Maybe based in Russia and like was hiding from people, and this made him to public, and that's what happened, but I one hundred percent believe that if this had happened anywhere near an election I, absolutely would not have gone out and voted, so it was, it was voter suppression got it. Yes, I agree with that okay, but but first person shooters. Here's the thing. I am I'll admit gay. Yeah Yeah, most of my listeners are stray and. PHOBIC! Yeah so bear with me here. Guys if you could just look past that. I am Gay, and but it took me a really long time, too. So I was not like a child gay I mean I was very obviously a child gay, but not in my own eyes rum, so I was fitting in and I was trying to be a masculine little boy. And I really did enjoy video games as a child and I just noticed that the one thing I could never get into was first person shooters, and so I go to the other masculine little boys, houses and play video games with them, and it was just not only. Was it not something I was interested in that they were interested in. It was just a little thing that sort of other me and made me like different like. Oh, IAN is not good at that went hand in hand with like. A little a little different. You can tell in his voice. And it was like A. Why is not good at these? Why can't he play these? Why can't he fit in? And it was like? Maybe it has to do something with that so i. think a childhood where I was trying to really not feel other and not way out I that was like one I. totally wanted to avoid first person shooters, because they kind of out me in a way right so are we talking like James? Bond type like that I guess I like I, vaguely familiar with. With what was? Like call of duties of the rail right. I dot as the war games. I could never connect with because they I guess they weren't subject matter. I was interested in when the other masculine little boys were yeah I, love saying masculine little boys. Can I keep? Not Allow yeah sure. I feel like the best of the Best Lake Middle Ground Game was any of the like wrestling like wwe game like masculine by Al. also like for the gays had a little rest right right? It's masculine, but also like wwe about like drag for straight people. It is like straight BRO. Drag and I'm up on kind of I'm super obsessed with the the can't be wwe of the eighties, Ray and John seen kind of currently trying to like curb. All of his fans into like being a little more accepting is a very interesting process to watch right right so yeah, first person shooter Games. That is a good one. What Games did you grab it? Besides obviously Yeah, the Campy wwe that I most on you. Absolutely the most beautiful Japanese. RPG's that you could ever you know the ones where I could self insert as the beautiful magical girl character, right? That's me that's. That's me. I can connect with this game. That is bringing up so many memories for me though us like it was so stupid at the lake, certain things were so gender to a weird like. Super Smash Brothers, and it was like God forbid that. You shows like Princess Peach. Whoever liked Kirby Omer. Anybody else. Yeah. It was going to get a con, were you so were you a gay little boy or just a gay adult? Definitely Gaya Dole. I was not yeah. I made that I made that decision. pretty pretty late. no I think I'm the same way it was that like I was certainly a gay trying to everybody else, but not myself and so I I tried to to mask it up, but it never worked now. Yeah, I absolutely envy the men who at fourteen they were like. Oh, I figured I they also absolutely at their own challenges I. Guess Envy isn't Sure Yeah? But I. I wasn't like hiding for myself I just. Had an I had cognitive dissidence and I couldn't figure it out. It was strange No, I I, was same way, and I've gone to like like drag con in New, York, a couple of times, and like to see the kids there who are like flaming in a way that way and I use that word, a lovingly adoring Louis but like I could never. And Yeah, it's great I'm glad I. Put in my years wearing cargo shorts. Caro Georgiades. My my community was to accepting was the problem I like I. I was actually I was born and raised in Calabasas California card. Down and every time I would say gay joke, or or use the word in front of my dad, who is a complete sweetheart. He would like give me a half chuckle. He'd be like. You know if you're gay. That's totally fine. So he would do that. I would get one of those like every month and I just get matter and matter. Each time right became a challenge to not be gay. Yeah I my parents, my mom, especially with pretty similar I remember the one time like she interpreted it as me almost accidentally coming out to her, but she did the same like. You know if you're gay, it's totally fine like I would I would love you or your brother. Whoever I like dismissively said like good to know. And she liked called me later and was like when you said good to know. And it was a whole thing, and I still denied it then it wasn't until like a couple of years after that that I even came out, but yeah. I was like this is, can we? All in good time okay Deborah. We'll get your good to know. Is Sir casting which is kind of even Gayer? If I had meant it not sarcastically. It wouldn't have been game anyway, but yes, so you grew up in California and now you live in new. York Brooklyn New, York, broadcasting live from Sunny Williamsburg. How has it been your house? Your pandemic going? It's been interesting I do live in a studio apartment with my husband. Lovely and we both work at a house that has been interesting but we have a nice little back yard, which is very rare for Brooklyn and outs. Good, that helps a lot, but I found out in this process that I am the only actual introvert of anyone I know okay. In. that is like a thing. I feel like people are learning introverted expert. Actually mean in the past few months. They like the people who thought that they were introverts have started coming out of the woodwork and being like okay. I got to see my friends. I Miss Hugging them and I'm like. We'll get back to you guys right right. No I relate to that I think. Are you absolutely just fucking loving it? Then of like not feeling obligated to show up to anything, honestly kind of it's been. It's been a good few years of like having jobs and working on comedy and. Having socialize and Oh and the politicking of the comedy senior absolutely. And so to just have those concerns. Sort of narrowed down has been really nice for a period. I guess I am starting to be like okay. Let's I mean. I am starting to feel it because. As much of an introvert as I wanna say I am and as much of a not like other gays gay I want to say I am like it's summer I need to go outside and a tank top so yeah. Right right I do feel like all the games that I follow are it's like a survival thing that they're like where we're just going to pretend like the pandemic is over because we have. We have short shorts to show off. We have tank tops to show off just Yeah, that's part of our. That's part of what keeps US alive. What am I to do I? It's why. Yes posing it, online is only I can't get exactly the feedback that I. need you know right exactly. Have you been slutty online inquest? Quarantine made you be slutty online now. I'm actually starting to get back into like feeling. Excited about like swiping on the APPS again. Just it feels like there's more of a prospect of like meeting up with someone like meeting at a park or something like that. which has you know I mean like you meeting up having a having a beverage, not meeting up in a park and behind the bushes. But Yeah I don't know, but it has been because so many of the conversations on these APPs I'm just like I don't. What is the point right now? Yeah, if it's not if it's just to talk to someone insane right and it has everyone's attention. Span is like. Forty eight hours at best so unless you can lockdown impersonate at that time. It's like what is the point any wedding entire relationships beginning to end? Exactly. Yeah, I literally. I have where I feels like. I get to a point. Where like I? We move off the APP we start texting one another, and then it's just like math kind of fizzles and we haven't even met one another. It's strange well. I met my husband on tinder so I would. But those sons of bitches where we're going to give us t shirts. They asked our t search. I reached out to them was like sponsor my wife they gave me they offered t shirts. I didn't even take them. Got You very well could have gotten married in tinder. T shirts. Yeah, I think that that's homophobic, not offering to pay for my entire wedding. Yeah that it's the least that they do for what we put up with. It is funny to me that like Gay Tinder. I guess like straight. Tinder is basically like straight grinder. but gay tinder is very relationship vote. It's like I'm here to meet someone. I, guess so it does feel like the most casual of all of them, but I also feel like so much of it is just like personal experience like there's no ifs like you met your husband on tinder. Obviously you endorse. Endorse alike. You know you had a good experience on it. You meet someone else who like mad at absolute asshole on tender, and they're going to be like guess what everybody on tenders and whole, yes, but truly very hard will and just a reflection of yourself. Yeah, yeah, it's just projection. Yeah, but I wish you luck. I think. It's GonNa go really well in the in the post quarantine world we'll see I can't tell if everybody is going to like come out of quarantine just. Either so hungry for affection that it's just going to be like everybody just going through what another like crazy, or if it's going to be the other way, which is like preparing for the second wave, and like wanting to lock down. Yeah, I, really want my friends to hook up and revealed that they've had like sexual attention the whole time. I think that would be fun. But Yeah I think it's GonNa. Be Crazy I honestly I hope. This isn't too forward, but are you looking to be like a third husband in a group of three husbands? We're always looking to just like Mary another guy. I mean I don't know if I could live in a studio apartment. Okay it's big. Only tinder sponsor is our our wedding, whatever whatever you call the additional the addition of a third spouse, whatever that is oh, no I was about to I can't I was about to think about tiger king, and we can't. We can't. It's passed the. No more I can't do it anymore. Yeah, that story really really came and went it pretty hard pretty fast. We all ended up. We all just completely consumed it and we gotTA. We gotta move to something else. Well! Let's talk about how the album nasty. So tell me this released in quarantine. it actually I, think helped ultimately a lot. Yeah, well, okay, so people have no idea from the beginning. What is the album? So? The album is an EP a five song ep of a comedy pop songs right and this pop is in the style of the music that I really like which is your competitor is's your Arianna Grande Day. You Taylor Swift's absolutely and I just have been performing the songs around New York City for like a year year and a half, and then I just put a lot of hours with my friend and collaborator Dave bowers to turn it into a fully produced sort of professional project and my goal for this sort of musical music comedy. That was both extremely laugh out loud funny to completely couple met myself. And at the same time, yes, at the same time would be something that if you put it on at a house. Party and people in the other room could not hear the lyrics. They would not go. What's this? Somebody. Else, they would be like okay. This is an okay pop song I liked that so that was the project and released during quarantine, and nobody had anything to do so. That kind of helped me out a little bit. Yeah, it is always good if if if you're throwing stuff into the cultural void right now. that. You'RE GONNA. You'RE GONNA. Get an audience, no matter what yeah, and it was especially with the medium because I did a I, did I released one music video and a couple of videos, which is important but I was like. How am I going to get people to listen to music? And surprisingly I worked out pretty well, yeah? Because it was all like produced in quarantine pretty much to right. Just the last bit of it so I was able to the studio before quarantine. which I don't know how it would have been able to do. In that time, but then I had a home music video shoot planned out. With lots of locations and people helping me out with dancing, and then that I couldn't do so I got a little green screen and I set it up at. I made a music video for one of the songs. That has I wanNA say like twenty copies of me doing. Part and that was very fun I. It's been interesting seeing what's been coming out in quarantine. People have been getting very creative. Yeah, we're. What was the name of that video again? So people know to to be able to look it up. That that song is I don't think in parentheses. This is the Club Right Right it tells the saga of young man me who? Is Ready to just sort of? He's been working for the weekend. He's ready to party all night long and dance the night away, but just cannot ever manage to find the club and keeps getting trapped in wacky situations. He's at the pool. He's at the Liberty Bell. He doesn't know what to do. But it does take kind of I. would say give it a listen. It takes kind of a crazy dark turn I. don't want to give it away. but that sort of philosophy for a lot of music is I like to sort of lobue. Serve you up a little joke that I think you'll like for like two minutes, and then at that point be like How about I just go fucking crazy? Let's move to a segment. We call elaborate, which is We have some of your tweets where you've expressed your displeasure of something and I just will have you elaborate on them. You don't use the word hate that often. I Will Andrew on that. Yeah, okay good for you as an individual bad for this segment. So this this might be kind of flat, but good for me. Well, why not? What I'm fascinated by just whether you are just throwing your husband under the bus. That was the tweet about him asking to put on music while he does the dishes, and then he puts on skin-blemishing, the railway cat from the movie cats. I'm fascinated as to whether that is joke, or if it's accurate, and I think either way, it is a cause for concern. It is one hundred percent true. And that is more cause for concern e-eh. Little background on him. He's an Indie film distributor okay, and literally caused movie theaters, and is like I have a small film, and you should give it some screens, which is really neat, and he has slightly contrarian opinions on film in that I don't know what his bar is. He thinks everything is great. and He loved. Cats was obsessed with it. He thought it was a work of. Of. Art like on ironically loved it completely on ironically, and he absolutely parts on skin bushings the railway at all the time and my house I sing along now. It's a bonding experience. You know yeah I had never seen the musical cats before I saw the movie cats for the first time a-, and Yeah I. Mean by the first chorus you know every single word of the songs Kimball shanks the railway lake, so it is. It is hard. Not It's like designed to corrupt your brain immediately. that said as much as I didn't really love cats. I have to put it in my top ten films of all time. I need to have Taylor Swift continue to get acting jobs. It's my favorite thing to entire world. I love another tweet. This was the worst thing ever just happened to me. Do you know what this is? GonNa. Be Wait now. Okay? The worst thing ever just happened to me. I walked into a bathroom stall at my rework as a guy was exiting, and he looked at me and said I warmed it up for you. Yeah, yeah, that's a real Jesus Christ. That happened to me that is. He just went. He gave me like a friendly like hey warmed up for. The we work is. I guess political. The we the we works I've worked in in my life. have been so full of like weird bad men. WHO, crazy thing about, it is that they go even weirder because. I guess usually weird. Bad men exist at the top of power structures, right men, just working for themselves in a we work existed the top of their own independent power structure Ray. That's how they store. That's where they grow those men. Yes, farm for them. Yeah I once saw one of those men just like go to the coffee, Milk Fridge and poor himself. The biggest glass of plane milk I've ever seen at just drink. It was it was I was so proud I was like you're living your truth and I love that for you. Sure like why? Why not great for him I do think one of the cells like the selling points for those types of places is like you know. If you work for yourself, you can socialize with all these other people and it's like I wanNA talk to any of those people. The last people I wanNA, talk to. No I mean I I think any type especially in a men's room and less everybody in there as gay, in which case it's not even a bathroom anymore. It's just an extension of wherever you were to begin. With. Any type of exchange of words is absolutely illegal. Yeah I, hate it! I don't WanNa. Be talked to I just wide. Just want to be left alone. But when they are engaged basis, they are absolutely free for alls. I end sometimes just very friendly. I remember walking into a bathroom at the Eagle in new. York City which is a leather bar and a man you know sitting amongst urinals was like hey, would you like to Piss in my mouth? And I was like no, thank you and he was like. Hey, no problem. I hope you're having a great time tonight and I was like I. Am thank you. Yeah, there's. Level of. I feel like that does not exist anywhere else. Yeah, I, and respect and openness which I love right exactly on that no. Before we let you go. Where can people find you and your work? You can find me on twitter and Instagram at Mr Ian. Lockwood 'em are lockwood because of horrible man who works in Digital, marketing has at in Lockwood and. I- thoughts on him. We'll save it for another time sure. And I would love if people would find me on youtube because I'm doing videos for the songs search, Ian Lockwood Nasty, and you will find my channel amazing. We'll thank you so much. I hope that you and your husband don't want another we'll see. Oh Roy, we're almost there. We're almost at the end of the show, but I our chasers chasers or the good step that helps all the bad shit. Go down easier starting with do better white people where we recommend resources, AK- April good stuff to Take Racism Aka the batch it down Berry. You pick the topic this week. What are we highlighting this week? Our other producer Melissa and I wanted to highlight a mutual aid initiative called wash masks. It's one word wash masks. Their aim is to provide masks for farm workers. Workers in Washington state so a little background. This work is important because a lot of farm workers are migrant workers. The majority are foreign born and identifies land next or Hispanic and they're especially vulnerable during cove and nineteen. Here's some stats. There are some two point four million farm workers in the US and of those two point four million anywhere between forty seven and seventy percent are undocumented, so there are a lot of farm workers who don't have health insurance and their working conditions are certainly not up to the CD standards. So when you take a bite out of your salad, I dunno just think for a second about the working conditions of the people who are picking that food and how you can help, and here's one of the ways you can check out mutual aids like wash masks. You can help them by buying masks and donating them, or if you're crafty and know how to, so you can actually make masks and donate those. Yeah, we can link to that organization and some articles on the subject and our show notes. All, right? Let's get into. The TV were watching this week. Berry, what you've been watching? So I know, you started watching, I may destroy you, but I was a little behind, but now I'm all caught up and Holy Shit. That show is so good. I Know Michaela Choice. Just amazing I love her. I mean like it. The range the range. She has like fucking chewing gum, and now this and the fact that she like both is starring in. In both like she is a powerhouse, and it's such an interesting show and the format, and the pacing of it is unlike anything I've really seen before and I. Just love her, so yeah, that's what I'm watching this week. Nice what about you will? Mine is going to be something that I have not seen as of this recording. Okay, but I will. will be watching it before this episode comes out because it comes out on July third, and that is a Hamilton on Disney plus I am one of really the only single digit New Yorkers who has not seen Hamilton Burr same I am one of those as well I know like almost all of it because I listened to the album, but I'm very. Very excited to actually see it especially considering that Broadway was like guess what we're not coming back for the rest of the year. So when I tell you that I was listening to Haiti's town and just started crying because they realized that like. All of these people aren't going to be able to do what they love and what they're so good at. I'm telling you the truth. Yeah, it'll be interesting to see how like live. Like this get. Like how what happens our our? Our show is going like star being released in this way I i. don't now, but I'm excited to see Hamilton and finally have a visual for what has been in my brain this whole time. What is your non TV? Chaser mine on TV chaser. This week is an episode of thirsted Kit. We've had the CO host spin and Nicole on the show before, but they did. An episode called a dog called REX and I. Know I'm like to three weeks to this but I. Still Maybe maybe people on here are also late to this, and they interview Jason Men's Lucas who of course we love. I don't want to say even much about it because I, just want people to go listen to it, but basically Thursday had done an episode and had talked about Jason Before, and then Jason listened to that episode, and then came on the podcast and talked with them in Nicole, and it is so. I mean it's so funny and so good, and like the amount of blushing that I was doing as a listener. Imagine being Nicole in the scenario like it is I was screaming it was so fun and good, and just a perfect episode so I loved it brought me a lot of joy and super recommend Thursday kit in general, but especially that episode. Oh, yes, remember one of the last restaurants we went to was in La and we saw him recite him and Jon. Hamm freaked out. I freaked. Way More about Jason's Zukas Than I. Did about Jon Hamm Yeah? Yeah well. What's Your Nine TV chaser? Mine is a book. Yeah, it's another book okay. Oh yes. I Read I've been trying to do this thing I'll buy a book and then. I read it absolutely revolutionary. Yeah, not just like I'll buy like four bucks, and I'll actually all of them, not just like by for read one of those, and then by another four, and read one of those that being said my of my overall percent books read to book. Spot is still pretty low. I'm doing my best, but anyway. This book popped up on my feed this week. I think because there was some story maybe this week about the TV rights or something being sold, and I immediately bought it. It came out last year. It's called Red White and royal blue. It was like a major bestseller, so a bunch of people probably already read it, but it's by Casey mcquaid, and and it's just like the perfect summer alike escapist read without giving too much away. It is about the son of the first female president of the United States and he has this rivalry with the prince of England and I don't know. May maybe they fall in love? It is so like almost fan fiction e, but it is better than it I. It's like a fan fiction because it's not about like. Drako and Harry Potter Basically but it's just like so like heartwarming and lovely, and just like a fun naive escapist read highly recommend It made me so happy amazing as Super Gay, and even though pride month is over I'm going to be extra gay a out of spite.

Zealot 38: Jared Leto with Rose Callaghan
"Right fresh from what? I'm calling rehearsal last week because I forgot to record. It's a brave new world unto absolutely marvelous comedian. And I'M GONNA say pop culture savant raise Callahan. Hello rely highlight yes. I am pop culture savant. That's what I let. I feel like I just have too much space in my brain taken up by stupid fats about celebrities and pop cul. I'd say it's just enough. Yes just enough and speaking of pop culture. I've had loads and loads of people sending me an article about the subject today claiming that he is now a cult leader who we talking about. A we talking about jared letter ACTA MUSICIAN. Supposedly a model Guy About town. And he's supposed cult. Jared Leto the Guy who looks. Like someone's bad drawing of Jake Dylan whole yeah. Basic never been a fan personally are a lot of people especially you know when I was young. Girls Light Oh my God jared Leto. But he's never really done it for me. Naar he's got the crappies and also I don't think he's got a sense of humor. He takes himself seriously at. Its ended all NAR so I had to go back and just familiarize myself with what he's done and I will say this is too good things about it one. He's very good ACTA. I'm GonNa give that as a songwriter. He's a fantastic actor and any gives a lot to charity super super rich but yeah because he's really rich. I mean it's like if I gave five dollars to charity right now. It'd probably because of how much how little money I haven't probably percentage wise more than he has given 'cause I'm not sure that jared leto has started a cult but will investigate that pile and the no pile but I think he's on the tipping point and it would just take something like a lead obita charity for to push him so on jared but I feel like he was just a typical like handsome actor guy for a while Bit of a hard like dieted. Everybody I think I didn't engaged to Cameron Diaz says yeah I white so who? She's dated Justin Timberlake and is it. She's still with one of the Madden's and Yeah. I remember that I saw Madden's alike. Baldwin's don't know where the edges are don't know how many there And who's going to be all right? Let's slam through your basic jared and then we'll get onto the cult stuff. I like that. He was born in Bossier City in Louisiana. 'cause like I feel like I could have been born in Bossia overseas. I I wasn't interview. Sorry to cut you off but this It was like an interview with him before he was famous that it was in some like E. entertainment or whatever. They're like an interview from the Archives. Jared LETO and he was getting interviewed outside like a nightclub but there are asking about like the popular dances of the time and he hasn't really strong accent. He's like Oh yeah you know Like the kind of dancing that they do. I didn't realize that was a Louisiana accent. But he's changed his accent on purpose over time and didn't you neely interview him. Yes that is correct It was probably one of my biggest of many professional cups that I've done Do top press record. Well I didn't even get to that point but The the pressing recalled thing. I can say that I did to Ruby rose in grant Smiley grand follies prominent Australian Day Jay and I did an interview with them and then I was like Oh my God and Ruby. Rose was like you didn't press record. Did you never be rise? I didn't anyway so 'cause I used to work in commercial radio so I used to like Interview lots of like bands and pastas and stuff. It was pretty cool and I write scripts for like a radio show But Yeah House. interview Thirty Seconds Tamaz. He's banned turing and then I dislike Ozzy my early twenties and then I just like posted on facebook about it. 'cause like back then we just saw that like Al personal facebook without personal facebook. We can say whatever we wanted on there and just be like released super unprofessional. You ended up basic era of facebook. Waiter slide I'm hungry and then you post that yet. Nothing funny about it just like just complaining. You know say the bitch your like are the ones that are like just do with some people right. Now don't talk about it and then everyone who kebe that kind of shape and you're right you're right. I don't want to talk about it. Just WanNa post about it and got some attention get attention so I posted on Was a cool job. That had now is like. Oh my God. I'm supposed to be interviewing like jared letter tomorrow but like I didn't even care like I was never into him like I. I don't even like jared ladder. Just posted that fired of that and then Auditor not long after my boss comes up in his like Yana Interviewing Jared leto. Tamar anymore and well because I forgot that the publicist that worked for the Record Label. That was looking off the giant Used to work at our company and my facebook friend. She at appreciate that end up being and then I got banned from doing interviews so and so you went straight by T. facebook and just went. Oh my God even more aleve. How much of an asshole? My boss is just annoying and I felt like some probably exciting anecdote like probably up but usually very exciting yet. You more exciting than I was going to interview him and I didn't. I think I learned to listen from that. But I'd like to blame jared leto somehow. I I never stopped right. So born in Bossier in Louisiana and Bossia and it's across the river city Shreveport have they share an all women's flat track Rolla Dhabi tame called the twin city knockers. I mean steady knocked his like I want so alike. I think I need to have a TESA sitting on. It should open thirty seconds to Mars shirts. Really feel proud of where he came from. Yes he was an Ala. A women's sport that's what he would do. That's right jared letter. Why are you dragging your feet on the old Rowley Dhabi? Yeah so he went to art. School like really cool. People like main did and like fine art painting. Fine him or me either but I did and I don't know I think Hedo that he really he. He gravitated towards the film school. Kind of thing. I can imagine him just like hanging out with these unique friends but like tolkien. A lot about all the amazing Jake's is GonNa work on but just getting started in like partying but not really that people would be like. He's amazing because he's attractive because he's yeah he's the hot guy. The Party Smoking Dariz token talking about on. Wa can have another one of my roles. Yeah of course you can have my loss via an always acting stuff so he started in my so called life. Playing Klay dines love interest. He was window. Narodni boyfriend in going to -rupt it which I just think I mean the star of The star of that movie is really the chickens under the bit. So pull pull jared. He's always a supporting act up. I feel like I just. I feel like L. interrupted his one of those movies. Detroit of the like Crazy Hawk. Go and then. She's like Oh. Isn't there a same wishy? Like CAUGHT SOLAR HAIR OFF. One of those is it. Engine DOTS with Angelina. Jolie's in that. Yeah she's Hot and light doing a whole like I'm a crazy hot gale and like oh I'm Gonna I'm crazy. Imminent cut all my hair off with like really blunt seizes but then looks really hot off towards the accident. Oh my God that was I was trying to. I was trying to act out now. I've got an adorable Picot. What's Woopsie I still up to make the hey? He kind of played a member in fight club. He was obliged blunt dude cold angel face which. I'm sure he loved. He played a heroin addict. Requiem for a dream with a really mucky on and he was an American psycho and he's got corn rows in panic room. I don't remember him from that at all so I looked up. Looked him up on the trial and oh he's never looked. Why Shaw Guard and that saying something else there would have been like. Oh my God that was again. Was that like when you could get away with a cultural appropriation. Imogene Lynn. Yeah for that. He won all sorts of awards for playing a Trans Woman in Dallas Buyers Club and then he won all sorts of people calling him decayed in suicides. squad when he played the and it was 'cause he does these hardcore method acting where he loses hates away or he I think to play Heron. He gave up sex for two months and donate so. That's like not giving up sex for a lot of people there like that. Yeah that's like a normal two months yeah but fit fit fit. I've gone full full methods like two months without sex like much. Like normal people like they. Maybe they can't get six for that. Make make giving up edgy. Might Toast for one day. That's a terrible. That's a really. It's a really good analogy. But even on this set of suicide squad. So hey he's idea of method acting was to everyone was supposed to call him. Mr J instead of jared because Jirka and hey played hilarious pranks on people like Sending costs members dead pigs. I know bathes use condoms and live rats. This why and there was. Isn't there a worse thing? The used condoms used condoms. Like what that's not that makes use. That's like a yeah. That's bullying and abuse. This is why actors get away with so much. She like they just all this. So eccentric is like nor that's psycho and no one should have to put up with used condoms being sent to them odds. Yeah I'm just sending you some of my chest up. Jeez because I'm just getting into character. Oh He's a dick yet his dig in. I feel like that says a lot about his personality I I just want to like I mean. He's like he's hooked up with a Lotta people as I said but think like Human Lindsay Lohan will on and off for awhile during a movie together about the that killed John Lennon and she was the love interest on white for that one so all that yeah he looked we'd maybe he wasn't having sex Lens Lindsay Lohan. Really it was. He was method. I'll yet he was just pretending to he was going back to to method. Acting will okay. So I don't know if you saw this dylan sprouse of the sprouse twins that will like childhood tain stocks that had like a Nickelodeon Linsey Lynsey these Dr Sar- He tweeted in late May twenty eighteen. He was like your jared letter now that you've slid into the dams of every female model age age. Twenty five what would you say your success right is and James Gone? You know who is no? He was like the director of like guardians of the galaxy. Okay off and He got cancelled because of saying heaps of problematic she'd on twitter up Yeah he responded with he sought at eighteen on the Internet. So Yeah and then in twenty fifth Dane I think he went on this He he said he took lots of ambient or something and Went on periscope and said jared enough failed school He was like Oh jarred. Rhetoric Sleeps with underage girls and he deleted it light and then also tweet from twenty twelve. He said driving from Vegas trading stories. About what a deep. Jared letter is That Sim stuff. And if you look off line there is kind of a lot of stuff about how jared letter should vein me to a long time yet. It's one of those things that like. Nothing's properly come out but if you go deep into read it in people's comments and stuff is a lot of stuff about him like texting underage girls hooking up with underage. Sorry my instincts on him. Were right but not that. I'm saying if any lawyers listening not that. I'm saying that he did do that. I'm just repeating what other people have said. That's right that's right. Although I will say and I will stand by in court. Jared litters the Dick yes I will. I insist that I will use the defense. All opinion and truth proved that he's not a week and I won't be able to do that. Bring out everything he's ever said and done and the jury be like with us. Sorry Yeah Goodbye. Saline reported in the newspapers. Add as jared leto always a decade. Exactly how this is going to go off. I just thought what's a gay and then I thought of a Rodeo. You know how the gate just slams open and in the bull comes out that but with the Dick all the I was thinking of like a chastity belt but like oh the office probably some really like a kink being young up lighting up. So then he's also seeing is somewhere ida he's actually been doing that for ages like thirty seconds to moths soldered in one thousand nine hundred eight. So that's a long time. That's like over twenty years pain in that band but they ought to get really big they get really big like two thousand five while I started working radio in two thousand and seeks. Yeah those already been around ages. Yes so they're songs will be at that time and they will like in the shots a lot in Australia. And did I remember that like when they started to get big all daddy seconds to Mas? Like don't go on. A bat is not jared letters band thirty seconds Tomasz. Thirty seconds to Mazi really wanted to separate himself from the ban and some things didn't aura. Job Lovett although it does back to the facebook paypal again. It's like guys Just before these interviews dots I just want to remind you that incredibly successful acting careers nothing to do with these band. Please don't mention my incredibly successful acting career at so many things are it's crazy. Yeah can we just focus on these one thing? I'm good at and not my incredibly successful acting career cue. I feel like when they came out that it was kind of like when Michael Romance with like a really big thing and it was sort of emulating. I think they have emulated similar tactics like the. Everything's very themed you nor line by line. Oh yes is a lot of eyeliner. There's a lot of outfits this like. Oh and second military sort of vibe. What like eyeliner hit cuts in the fans code the echelon and like earnings and named after an s will say as we go further into this eight. Bring back a lot of the themes of what they call the albums and the songs code and all that sort of stuff at researching these. I listened to and watched a lot of thirty seconds. Tamaz music video is and I don't want to anymore. I don't WanNa do that again. Ever snow good bad time. For Chew it is acting in the video gratuitous flagrantly gratuitous acting in full like it'll arpund like the whole clip ago for ten minutes and they'll be like an opening scene. It goes three minutes and then they'll be music and then the music will stop and it'll be like what's behind the door. No whatever spooky does not Michael Jackson and he direct so many of them music videos s some short films and under a pseudonym yes which pseudo bathelemy carbons. Because he's a doctor. He's favorite Dr Seuss Book. Oh my God he so Whimsey Cohen Is the five hundred hats of Bartholomew Cubans and people knowing that? It's him that it's just look you guys not focus on the fact that I can wins equal pseudonym climate. Directa as well yes. I'm very good at it but stop going on about it. Yes happens. Is the fake name. The director that just happens to be me etc. Asia in an interview. He said let the for the video for the kill he said it was directed by an insanely obnoxious Danish. Albino named Authonomy Cub. It's an funny also. I looked it up and it takes a lot longer than thirty seconds to get two months to say he's also a obsessed with like space obviously thirty seconds to Mars. The concept keeps coming up He to promote like one of Singles Code Apnea. He sent to space in space. X Dragon Captial Pot of Kaga emission But like I mean they didn't play this song up there. There wasn't like a listening party. There wasn't even anybody on the rocket like God. It wasn't even anyone on the rocket. And they like went to the Kennedy Space Center like for the launch indeed like QNA and stuff. Like I feel like who was doing. The publicity was doing a really good job they have. Whoever is doing? Their publicity is doing an incredible job. He's got a lot of businesses as well and so that the US talking about him being reach. It's kind of the head of fight with. Am I? Because I think I break the contract and they're trying to get out of their contract. Yeah it was a very basic like you're supposed to do five albums for all this money. And then they did three. And we'll like folk you am. I like either. I'm not an expert lawyer but that seems fairly cotton dry yet and record. Companies some ethical behavior in some sort of we earn new behavior. But at the same time. If you break you contract then you're GonNa get you going to get done Less you only have really expensive Liz. Because you're a famous actor millionaire just from that and then I guess you can find it. And he directed a documentary code artifact about the fact he bounced Legal Battle Cup so sorry the whimsical and Hilarious Buffalo. He's got a K. He's got three businesses that I'm aware of one which is called the hive and its digital marketing and social media. And they do all of that. He's consumers digital marketing and social media. Is He's Event Concert and Event Management Company which hold weight inches in wonderland today. Who Do they do events and stuff for me get thirty seconds to Mars right? Thank you for. Yeah Yeah and there's a streaming service that might lead extreme rains concerts and things code tae ask again ask again Who Do they strain these? Tamaz what man. Jared Leto has a good accountant. That's what I am thinking. You can watch exclusively on the streaming service. We owned advertised by these marketing company. We are here and it's a concert promoted by the concert company. We are in Kiel. Soy like invest in a lot. He's a tat Kim. Vesta like Ashton Kucher is also into that stuff now He invested in this company. That people from SPACEX started on to Three Day rockets. Like when he was one of people at like I only a few people in this one hundred and forty million dollars. He's back more than seventy companies in the early stages like slack spotify UBA and snapchat and he's friends with Alon Mosque. Which is not surprising. But we'd if you Google at this like a lot of pictures of them hanging out at parties and like along gives him good advice like he was like. I've gotten really good at saying. Nar lack eyewitness. I witnessed it with E-leong unit and I realized how important that was that we can do so many things. I'm not Special K Thought you could do so many things spot you know. It's important to say nor nor went to stop so that you can like focus on the right things like my incredibly successful acting career. My cult that I'm making he. He also said that Having a band is like a startup which is really waikiki. In like the record companies have venture capitalists. I'm like no. It's just like a business like yeah studying bandies like starting band and also when you do have already have a career and quite a lot of money. It's not at all. Let's start up. It's not like a risk autumn. No table why people think he started a cult because he keeps saying that he started a call and thanks. That's all we have time for the same lack so that it's like they've been dropping clues for ages in the music video a up for closer to the edge. If you watch it on UNSCREENED THREE MINUTES. Fourteen says yes. This is a cult in really big lettuce Directed that video. I'M GONNA say probably bothell Kaban was God also when you watch the music video for closer to the edge or at the stop. There's all these fancy tank of like. I wish everyone could just not fight and like don't regret anything you do. And then like people love that he's hanging out for some reason is lady claiming this. It's such an intense love that is like crazy yum comment by this lady saying that. She's playing the song to husband who is in a coma. This is in two thousand ten and people with the fought like what happened. That's really hectic. And then she did some updates He's awake and then the update which was in January. This year said they no longer to get up but he can so. We walked at his a roller coaster. She he was like fucking played thirty seconds to Mars for me. Two years wallows in Karma and the only way I would listen to it unconscious devastating so I took up that marriage. Countless of climate people have probably had that done to them. So thanks to the divorce. Jared let our. Yeah so okay. So there's this event Naquib Mas Island and they're promoting it and the older peaches alike. Like CAFTANS wipe CAFTANS. Everyone's wearing what and it's not the first time they've done it. It's It's on the Croatian island of abundant upon John Town. But they've done these events before haven't night they. Yeah they started as camp. Mas In Malibu and I think I still run that so an start in two thousand fifteen a bit. Mas Island is the one that had the recent flurry of articles saying We think jared LETO started a cult. But yes so he's been doing this cult shit for ages and so the three day inverted. Commas music festivals. They only band playing is thirty seconds to Mars. Yeah and activities in what is sports in Common Kava Rock and meditate and do Yoga Esi End. We need to also mentioned empty shape. Oh yes only two thousand. Us dollars Elliott shape to run camp. Mas Sorry that was like two grand or something and this has like we should mention as well. That recently Jared letter tweeted that. He was in a silent meditation for twelve days. And he like had just come out of it and he didn't know Corona virus if you might say loan mask you hear stuff exactly should have. You did the ground or like. He's probably should have sent you like smoke signals or something even if you don't have you find on the like. Londono headlong can be silent for as well. I don't think so like someone died in America from Corona on the twenty ninth of February. This was all while he was not at the silent retreat. Meditation place so I feel like he is just not paying attention. Generally or he wanted to a viral he wanted. He wanted to let people know that he'd been in asylum. Like sorry Wasn't just like ours. Sorry in a few nine about like I'm very spiritual Very unfair Jarred For the silent meditation from just from watching fleabag. Anyway definitely I didn't think he comes up with anything himself. A southern railroad it's all borrowed and he doesn't really Beckett up so he anyway we're getting too. I am surprised with Corona virus. That he didn't come out and start saying that it was the five Jay signals. He'll get one of those people. I'm not sure if you've come across them online. It's like the anti vexes ally not not yet it's five Jay signals. He'll come out that soon. I reckon I can only hope because I am going to keep an eye on him from now on a finger yet but so this the next Mars Island in Croatia is I think planned for August this year. Let's say if he has deposed by net but outrageou the Gulf from the website says Mas Island is a three night owning queasy festival experience on a private island in Croatia relaxing restore with Yoga amongst the trees. Take a dip in the Adriatic Sea. What midnight screening will go gaze at the stars and catch to intimate performances by thirty seconds to Mars? Mas Island is an experienced like no other tickets between seventeen hundred and seven thousand dollars. It says it's all inclusive but it Cape saying all the extra sheet you can pay for which is like the definition of not all inclusive and one of the one of Don's tattoos but there's four options tattooed has to be one of the tattoos that dic- which that's that's leaning towards year like coat one of them's like property of Jared Leto on I. Ninety nine dollars nine dollars for triangle. We did line through it. Which is the symbol all. These like SIM Symbol Shit as well. But it's all it's all such empty symbolism as well because I think he likes the shock value in controversy of appearing mystical and Kelty without actually having any background to it. You can do because he started thirty seconds to Mars with his brother Shannon. Who is the drama One of the activities a drum circle with Shannon later asterisk band activity sub- subject to change is a lot as a lot of drama circles. Says I downloaded the schedule Mas Island I've gotta say because you go all the sounds of fire fest elite but it's actually like super well organized and I do respect them for that light in August like. They've already nodded out like a lot of the details. So is there's a lot of activities. It's like kayaking paddle boarding snorkeling. Face painting Sern carving tie-dyed Blah Blah Blah is twenty eight opportunities across the weekend twenty-eight opportunistic kayaking twenty-eight opportunities to do paddleboard Paddle boarding peddling older. Like and then this There's Mas Trivia is one of the events and it's not about moss the planet the Planet Eddie Sickens Tamaz Knowledge in the Maastricht Way. Yeah AT THE PAVILION. Still not seeing seven thousand dollars worth no not at all but then there's like the full thousand dollar package in terms of accommodation like every step up they tell you things that have fate. You didn't that you go hang on what that wasn't included in the lounge area like this doesn't worse than that. You saw like four K. Gets YOU SHED ON SWAYED END ECON? And then the seven K package says the accommodation is completely waterproof and lockable way. What do you mean? The other one's not lockable and it also mentions that some of the inland away from the coastal flooding inside. Sorry sorry can we go back to that? Coastal flooding for a second out on five hundred dollars. We can almost guarantee you weren't get foot rot. Yeah you warned float away into the ocean and drown if you pay more money in. The Phoenix package doesn't have a price. So some of the add on activities or I think it's included in the AI. Pay Price is a buffalo covens limited edition. Print never seen before signed and numbered. You get to go to their soundcheck which amazing you know you get to go to. She'd version of the show. That yeah what the show is light up with less people. There's a private Dna followed by a private opening ceremony with the band. And an exclusive limited edition gift from Jared and Shannon. I don't take the used condom. Yes but it's restart like it's an old one saving it. So it's it's double used face. Fans would actually be like. Oh my God I would pay eight thousand dollars for that use condom. Thank you thank you. John they would they would days private family style. Dining list the meals. It's breakfast lunch. And do know offshore late night food and this and they name all the areas like walk on. Water Harbor and Oblivion Pavilion kings and Queens. Kitchen and kings and Queens. One of the album's songs Zan Medine SPA Forrest Yoga platform on this John. Rise Yoga at six. Am God this is after one. Am carrier key and one. Thirty am stargazing. So that's Hoffa. Now that's intense. He's very organized. Yes like Bain organized by Noti. Annoying Friend A. K. So we're GONNA do Karaoke twenty five minutes Yes I've picked all the songs. They're all thirty. Seconds to Mars. Songs them doing stargazing and then going to bed and we're getting up the yogurt six. Am It actually does sound torturous? Could call would be. You know you have to put yourself through all these difficult. Things like watching a thirty seconds. Mas concert watching another thirty instead. He's like all these pain. I'M GONNA be like such fulfilled person at the end of this. And that's an also now in the in the days of a self-isolation people groups of people being outside. It also sounds illegal and so it all post the pictures from the last month island on the Zealot facebook page. Because that's where you just I this isn't just an island festival This is everyone wearing the same cola and following. Jared LETO ADDRESSES. Jesus around and I. He's really leaning trying to dispel the courtroom is at all. He's trying to generate them and calling yourself a coat makes you cope. He's got his hair out and he's wearing the white long dress Kaftan thing. He's got his arms up like he thinks he's Jesus or lighten audit are. It's like a journey town thing or something. In all these people wearing what and their dislike on my God. Jared is lots of light looking up to this saen and praising the sun in the sky letting three hundred weeks and one guy. Yeah Yeah. Yeah there's like a lot of women and I think a lot of them are younger. So good faith All right let's go through the the yes pile the talk and the question is it a cow the yes pile. He looks like a cult leader. I mean video. Say It looks a bit. Like Courtney Cox did so strong. Take interesting I'll have to throw g dressed up as him for like. The Halloween is amazing. Hey talks a Lotta Shit? Like like cuddly does do. There was one of my favorites and this goes into will talk about the Echelon Unisex as well but when he was asked where the band got a name. He said it's a loose translation from a rare manuscript cold August. A poker fix written by an old harvard. Professor and Harvard Library gets inquiries about these and they see it like they've done in yet. They've done an online post saying okay. This manuscript does not exist. This guy does not exist. It's a really not ready yet. I ended up. Yes he would get away. We sit because it's like. Ooh It's part of mythology like he might have just been lying and got caught out. But it's like is it. Is it part of the game? Shannon litter even put. Well you know we like we like inventing these mythologies but when you look at it you know it's got a whole lot of young people e mailing libraries and that's good all my God. I'm actually Google it it. I quickly good good at is like an Faq section on the Harvard Library website. Like they've had to write these in. Faq Like I just looked this up and it's like have you heard about? I can just imagine the person it have. You ever heard about a thesis titled Anything Along The Lines of August Apocrypha fix near like we have received several inquiries about birth August end the L. Four ninety wing. We assume these references to the BAND THIRTY SECONDS. Tamaz and his explanations. Bama's have offered to the origin of that name which suggests it's based on a inverted Commerce thesis or in manuscript in Omaha professor in the rest of it. He's just going each note. That's funny we have also Switched Out Book and manuscript catalogs there like we have gone to great lengths and it does not exist anyway. It's so funny it's like end up emailing us a link to that on the on the FAC- page. It's so funny that have just got soy. Seek of thirty seconds to Mars for ends asking about it just went look. We'll put it in. Our hotline was just like a recorded message again and inevitably when they hurricane is a a quick flash subliminal message that says finally August fix so they made it out and it seemed like the booklets a couple of days so that just made up the sting but haven't done any is meaningless. Go So they do take money. And Exploit People like occult. Yeah that's that. You're not getting your money's with at Mars Islands and alcohol or drugs alab. They're like it's not a alcohol on the island but you are not allowed to take alcohol fit. That's like I didn't have maybe thirty seconds to Mars without paying off your teats awful. Maybe that's through that it's not a cult that specific beat of evidence because I called Stanton elect to get your high and drunk so they can see some do but others Completely dry but also then just they get people really exhausted which you would be. If you to one thirty stargazing up for yogurt six. Am make sense because that's only like four hours sleep. Okay right and another another thing on the pile. I feel like I'm going to be saying these two therapists at some point but I- trolled through a whole lot of song lyrics and one of them is telling ease in its some cold end of the beginning and the lyrics go. It's the end he today but I will build a new beginning. Take some time find a place and I will start my own religion yet. That's that's a big. Yeah that's that's could not be more like I mean also are accompanied with the yes. This is a cult Rights that is used on lots of like music videos and like on t shirts and stuff. All there's also they have specific Mas Island it's like what happens on. Moss island stays on Moslem Jason's yes then -nificant has learned to come back from Amazon. And that's what I is it. Oh far like the TV show lost something check. Can't remember what happened in that show but it was but I remember. Yeah I'm basically you need. You need to review. Show is but yeah speaking them. They do have they also sale. Yes is a coattail Asia. Yeah I think my favorite of match is is a shirt. And it's got these sort of cartoony picture the illustration of jared with a hood like Jesus cloak thing on and tease coming out of his eyes and four letters on it. Which is W W J Day? What would jared do? Uh Yucky edit like it fair the proof. He has long hair. And a bid. That's the that's the clincher defends. Okay so they called the army yes. It sounds some evidence Well he grew up in Louisiana Wyoming Colorado and Kenya. And so like he leave. Neil like air force places honorable at the born in Bossier city and the time to the Boxtel if force base and then Wyoming has some other air force base and then Colorado like has Colorado Springs all yet. Shane meant and the three other. Us IF we'll spaces one of which hosts an NSA echelon outpost not was where he grew up and get just borrowing stuff not really proved but just something. I found that was interesting. And he's makes losing we original and he said does these hoping makes me think that charities a Dick and they've got these video saying. What is the Chalon? And it just looks like a scientology recruiting video are because it's about being a family and it's a bunch of believers and but he said he wanting to be that he hates the word fan because it just seems so dismissive and he says because we have these cult these family these believers who understand. I see of eating. There was a name to reference them. I think if you think the word fan is dismissive then I don't think you should refer to people as cult members in I think. That's it's less dismissive than Exploitative I think so like I earned these people. Have you forgotten stock into a tweeted thing with crazy fans of anyone before nor but this might be the first time? 'cause there's like belabors like the crazy like tyler with fans of fucking mental yama like a couple of years ago. I tweeted something about Zulia banks and my fucking mentions. Were like fucking crazy after that? End It like you and you'll at ha ha but then I was like getting so I was getting really mad about people. It's just there yet. I in June fans like echelon seems pretty pretty up there yet and I did go on facebook to say if there was an official facebook page. Yeah and it was hard to tell because they are globe Biz Tens and tens of global chapters of the echelon is like a Swedish one and a Russian one is. It's that made me go. Ooh I'm uncomfortable. That's his cheek. That's okay I searched like jarred lettuce name and whatever a thirty seconds to mas on tweet up and then I saw I found the weight and this person said finding at Bolivian. Coup operator and propaganda Daza whose great grandfather also came to power in a coup by the way is part of jared letters cult who has ties with epsteins currently missing in action. Right hand woman Elaine Maxwell. I'm like WHOA. So then I like looked up these persons Twitter account that has like a blue cheek as well. Bolivia Jake and we'll of mentions off. Just like jared letter. Like on my goal jared letter. She's just like obsessed with jared litter photos with jarred Leder I couldn't find any any evidence of delaying maxwell or any of the other stuff but I don't know what that means but it was interesting. Puts it on the pile right conspiracy theory stuff. I think that sought to put it in the call pile as a K. On the no will you. Have you got anything on the yes pile just like a all wearing? What the CAFTANS Bothell me carbons thing that same slot Kelty The fact that he likes to wait Ryan Burrow tied onesies in good climbing in Joshua. Pray now that will. I mean? That's something addicted to use. The advantage of you know like if you compare it to five festival like also organize. Fi. Music peasant. Very disorganized is very well organized. It's well organized to organized. Like I think it super lucrative. That's the thing I reckon Hayes. Just it's like he's redeeming occult. He's he's not. He hasn't inserted anything but he's just he's writing the opening and wouldn't take much yeah. It wouldn't take much for him to just flip the switch. I guess it's like if you're making people do things against their will. Is that what? Which which jared could jared if he told the Sean to put a mosque stick three two s them. Yeah they absolutely would. I'm sure I can think of a better example but as a pinch so on the no pile of is it a coat. I think off any trainings. One is that is no real deterrent to leaving. Yeah you could just you know. Stop buying albums and that would be a considerable relief. I felt like what about getting off the island on a frigging vote to get bit. We can't just leave the island. That's the whole point of islands in main feature is hard to also talks. I tried to fire the island from the mainland. I think about that. He's Higgins Island on a pointing out the ferry yet one of the bright all inclusive things. Just kidding you have to pay extra for the high speed jet boat. The other one takes four hours. Four hours Tamaz Island. The second thing on the no pile is it. It doesn't seem to be an actual beliefs. Jim Except just love the band and believe everything that jarred says and the third thing is that I think jared letters just a week. That's conclusive evidence very conclusive evidence. Thank you I was GONNA has like. I think my one main bit of evidence that it isn't a call is just like I mean. A lot of bans. Just ream the offense. For as much money as they. Can you know what I mean like? This seems like a heightened Extreme version of the main great access. Pasta that you get like when a Popstar does a tour you had. I will sell those things. Now it's not just rock up the white behind the Geoghegan get an autograph. It's like all you pay for the light guy and they actually always call it something fucking stupid as well the Justin Timberlake tour in the mid two thousand the justified all access. Postle what F- finer like Brittany's circus like pod auditor fucking like and then it costs like fifteen hundred dollars but yeah excess Alexis to. Yeah the Brit pit you get in the pit and you get your own cocktail and then you get like main great before the show and you get to like get one. Further and one autograph is just like an hundred dollars. It's like that basically but it's even more expensive. I will add one more thing on the Polish. Well is that just maybe thing that I mean? Coats generally operate in sacred and Norway. That jared would is capable of doing anything in private. Hey He's a narcissist any needs. That attention fought publicist name tension but whale. Like odds Kinda jerk. It's like hiding in plain sight like no. We're not really a coat. Yes made it same jokey enough that it's like all it's not a cult. But that's exactly what he would want you to think because it's so obnoxious. Tom Show I thought I would be show. I would thought it would be no but I just think he's. He's a cult in waiting. He just loves the controversy of I people even discussing it brand of some random. That's a bad cold. I like to look up. Read it for things and I think this reddit thread sums this up a lot like do we have answers. But the red at posts said people who have been to jared. Leto is Mas Island. What was it like and this one comment and read dinner just said Sheet. So a you got and it was eighty percent voted. I mean this other celebrities like August quickly some people that would rather have a Col Brittany Spears and John Legend out. Sign the sheet up today call in a second. Rianne up beyond say Lindsay Lohan Out Bay. Oh I mean. She had that like Greek Beach Club. Which is that like a cult kindle Jenna or kyle whichever one the lip kit. That's basically a cult isn't it I think. The the whole Kardashian Empires pre-accident halfway there. My only random is that jared reckons that offense sent him a seventy e and he posted a picture of it on instagram with the caption. Are you listening? And he reconciled poked. He punched a holiness and tended into a necklace but when he posted the picture a lot of people were responding with. Oh that looks very very much like these really really popular brand of stage prop e you can get out really so. There's a good chance. He just made up a story that a fan had caught there. You're often sent it to him all my God. That's like really lame it's soil so land so he's probably he went to OSCO. Serve like that that Van Golf. He knew what he was doing. He was here he lands on Great. I'm tired of looking at him and listening to him. Jared letter like I hide it in before He ruined my Korea and all these stuff about him and Osu hate him. There's not one good thing I learned about him now. I Rode My. I sprained my muscles. Rolling them yeah so I think anything left to say es I do not like him in a House. I do not like him with a mouse. I do not like him Sam I am. I do not like these boring men. Join a cult thought. Join a cult. It's not a good idea Join Jared Lettuce call. He like he sin idiot and he does like cleanses and stuff and silently. It's not good. It's not healthy just yourself and just meditate but like not in the way that he does but just practice yourself. Habit not not considered letter politics comprehensive. Thank you very very much. You're welcome you've been listening to zealot produced by me Joy Thornley. We've no help from buffalo new covens.

All right ladies and Brian Everts we have here. Is there one of my? I keep saying this is one of my favorite movies I pretty much all these have been leaving my favorite movies This is my favorite David Lynch film.

So the if you're watching, you see the the topic of the episode is, what's the most you've ever done for a laugh and the reason that we bring that up. Is Because of a headline. Out of Bossier city or Bossy a French because it's Louisiana I'm GonNa say Bossier City Louisiana. The. Headline is man jumps into bass pro shop fish tank and swims across as the temperature continues to climb. Sometimes, you just have to cool off quick dip but the fish tank in the middle of a bass pro shop is not the time or the place Tiktok user jumped into the tank after saying he would, if you got two thousand lakes, he got the likes intruder word jumped in another shopper recorded the man swimming posted to facebook at first. She thought it was just a big fish splashing the man ran from the store but was later identified. He's been charged with simple criminal damage after store officials found the tank would have to be emptied and cleaned. Before the pandemic or now This was June twenty-ninth. Mike although asked. All those fish could have gotten exposed to the COVID. So That's more dangerous us when I thought a of the question what I thought about this group I'm I'm thinking that we might have to cut this half an hour but what's the most that you've ever done to get a laugh? What's the biggest thing you've ever done just for laughs? FM Noise. Myself on the Internet like an idiot trying to make people. Can't you know honestly I think have to show comes down to Jamie trying to make people laugh. I really think there's there's part of that. Yeah. Yet. I know for me it. It's not the the more a recent thing. It actually happened in third grade dice arts class, and I, remember this because at the time it was the most trouble era got into my life. I was aiming to be the class clones I knew I was a little nerd engine to make people laugh and remember Aaron heading your time. Your Air Nolan was was like he was trying to be the class clown also Aaron known. So one day in. The at lunch, we were like A. kind of like a bull shit talk off to against one another and make everyone laugh. The favorite. Kind. Eight down. And I'll never forget I said every word under the sun s miss dice. Oh, walked in I told them to suck my fucking nuts. I got I got the reaction I wanted I got all the labs you can imagine but also got my name on the chalkboard with three check marks read. The check marks I. Think you got off light. She happened to walk in here me as they told me the suck my fucking balls. And, I'll never forget that from that moment on realized the pure joy of swearing and why is why is the best thing in the world you're doing it ever since? Plus you change the future for the better to imagine if he wound up class clouded now. Everybody. That's like a flashpoint like alternate timeline. She's. Flying happened. Humor died. For me. For me the biggest biggest thing that I think I want I remember being a part of was the one thing that I got away with and I think pete got in trouble for I think maybe Steve The to was that was put dill zero on her shoulders sticking Mr. AP. Controversies fucking. It was we we talked about this story before it was. Government class. Who's in the class? Jamie Lynn. Jamie was. told the story hey you've. Got In trouble didn't do anything I'm sitting here in the fucking classroom. And we. Wish. You remember we Jamie Sacred Dale, just broke up with his girlfriend was it down to the dumps so we wanted to make up and so you know it was good. It was for a good cause and shame on Mr Walton for reacting the we did I mean, honestly. Shirk overreact like him. Over reaction. From. The look on Pete's face when you fuckers ran away and that it was just leave I looked at one another. Really. That's so eighties. It's so. It's all eighty. At the front, we're dummies to be at the threat. Nineteen Ninety, four eighties, my participation. Here my every like evenings tip movie my participation was all Keith out because I like head his feet. Like. I was at the end. So he can see me I was looking around the corner. I was involved. Absolutely you saw somebody else camera arrears. You saw get somebody else. Maybe. Did what? So. In case anybody's in case anybody who's listening watching and things that I'm Schmuck I was. On the baseball team, I barely made based on the baseball team. I was deathly afraid of coach finding out. So that's really why I didn't just kind of fess up and take the punishment was your coach coach Barker. I. Heard he was. He was he was hurt asked I'm not GonNa lie and honestly I was in so much trouble already that year that I just figured that I'm just GONNA. Take it. I do love it as Grizzly Adams yelling at the two of us. Never. Been in trouble. So I didn't know what look over Pete he just smirking. That's what an eighty guy does. These taking. I've been. I've been getting in trouble since the first grade so It was kind of old hat by then. I remember I was sitting in. Math class senior year. Mrs Achilles. Class. And? Like I have no artistic ability whatsoever. But for whatever reason I started in my notebook instead of paying attention to what she saying because I didn't need the class to graduate I was just trying to impress colleges that rejected me anyway. I started taking a pen, the pen and just drawing a almost identical portrait of Mrs Achilles and my notebook, and I sat in the front seat of the class. And Laurie Bray was sitting behind me and I just remember that I finished my portrait. I was all proud of it and when she turned her back to write on the chalkboard I, held the the notebook up over my head facing behind me so that everybody could see and I just heard. Everybody tried to hold in their laughter. It was more amazing because literally I can't draw to save my life and like if you asked me to sit down and try to draw something, you'd swear that I was like. My left foot. Painting with my feet but. Daniel degrees. Yes. Something like that. Jamie. You GotTa have a million stories I. Mean you're. Going say I mean your? NATORI Down here I don't know I was just thinking one when you're talking about someone's classroom and I WANNA say Steve were you in this class of what was our sociology teacher? Class sociology. At the old. Yeah. The. We. We did that video with any rushing? Water psychology psychology psychology. Very different. Sociology class drawing of the teacher that someone did it was a real nice drawing on with chalk on the show. Of course, I'm laughing already. So might screw a story I remember being fucking bad mood or something like that and coming in and just taking the chalk written for everyone. There's a lot of kids in there even know or because it was a mixture of twelfth. Grade Eleventh Grade, tenth grade was like a mixture of these kids and I drew this huge. Cock coming. Out this. Terrible drying. You know this is a giant long. Dick was big massive mushroom head. That and sat there and all this teacher was fucking Livid Shockingly Nolan gave me up and I was ready for someone just balloons Xueqian. But he was. Over that I can't imagine that is amazing I. Guess let move a stray dog into school. That's pretty. Do you remember. Do, you remember the Leprechaun making love. I'd member what's the leprechaun Did that go I. I forgot what it was I can't forget it because the Irish. It was sophomore year. I was in English class, Mr Louisiana's English class, and all of a sudden I, hear you in the hallway go. Third Time's The charm and then he's just. Walked around. Like ran around in a circle, and then they started humping the floor. Yeah that sounds about. Going into the we've talked about this before going into speakers in all the different classrooms and shit laid back and you were part of the ones response. were. Arrested right now. What the Hell? House again Stevens are you in lockdown again? Yes. Genetic by New, York City to be safe Jimmy you're part of the senior prank though to write or or your own. Me and Paulo Cox Right We. We went. It was like there was a class like some extra curricular thing it schools school is still open and went like eight or eight thirty at night and we in. Paul drove into the girls locker room talk dirty magazines. Clinton pitchers out of like Cox and pussies babies. Every. Other girls locker. Taping them everywhere holds a fucking. She. Got Mad at. There was. Off. Limits and so we did that. We did some vandalism because I remember. ovals polar me one of us took the clock and just ripped it right off the fucking wall. But then we came up the idea. Toothpicks and so we took toothpicks and put them in one whole hallway. Going into the door, take the toothpick and snap it off. Then we took dines and put cement on it and put the dime right there. So cemented so they couldn't get in the classrooms. and. So supposedly. If it's true or not. I don't know some of them were able to pry them off and it was fine. What of on the take the whole lockout and? Think the whole new one thing and I remember Mr Rams called me in the office and neither one of a mere nor Paul gave each other up and yeah, I think we we worked worked pretty well on that one. That's awesome. What's even we weren't even trying to do that for laugh we're just like. Something aired senior senior year, and get near the end of the year. No one's done shit and. My idea was the fucking porn magazines, which is a stupid. Do this. Series around boobs and. Girls. Room. It's the best idea. Was Screw and I did cut out a word screw state. Actually depress earth. Home Phone was repressed check death though. I mean there's there's one recently at work at. There is a leading. Ear On night. The. Last one I'll be this. Dog. there's there's Leah work either had a death in the family or somebody was sick and she was all upset was crying I. felt bad for this land I like this lady and so I was like, okay I'm trying to make her lap. So I just took a bunch of like both like folders and and I had like a a notebook filled with like some some stuff I was working on at work, pile them up his walked by her desk and just completely fell down through the Arab. No reason but it's different when you're in high school because everyone laughs I wasn't getting I get the laugh. I've got a ton of people jump like. Normal, sorry I'll pick that up. He and. What's her name? Laugh Blah. Blah Blah. Shit. -actly. Now I'm sure there's a million other ones just those are the ones that come. Jamie's like. Filing, notebooks, and then there was this date. It's like from goonies and. I remember. We got into a prank war with the girls across the hall in college and. Like they so the doors opened in. So they fill the garbage can full of water, tipped it against the door and the knocked and ran away, and then you open the door in the water just comes rushing into your dorm room which. which started it then and we duct tape them into their room like we went through like three rolls of duct tape just frigging just there's no way that we're getting that. fucking. Got Nervous, like the place was going to catch fire. So we like knocked on the door watch them try to pull it open. Should a screw on their door way right would have been better. And, then like it was wintertime, so there was there was a bridge. Connecting to buildings on campus. So they went in the our rooms really over the roof to that bridge. So they went to the room behind US went out their window and we always had our window open with no screen because always hot as balls in there, and they just made a bunch of snowballs and just started peppering us while we were fucking drinking one night. And so that pissed designed. So we went to the grocery store got. All right. Yeah. Right. Now, it was a good time. Then, we got a bunch of Broccoli and it up into little pieces and we had fistfuls and when their dorm room or there the room was open. We just ran in and just chucked into the deepest corners knowing that they could never get all of it and sure enough. At, least one piece got caught in the heater was baseboard heaters and they just got and just we stunk out the whole room. So we all lands. Awesome. We declared the. Great. Individuals. which what's your story? Good. Know I started thinking about this and I had really old one come back to the ever would have thought about this again if it wasn't for this exercise but. So I went to football game with the I used to hang around with. This kid when I was growing up and he had a big brother ranking dampener ten years older than US right. So he went to the high school football game, we were I was. Third Fourth Randall how old I was I was a kid. And we went there and they hated this one guy couldn't stand guy big varsity football jacket you know and the whole thing. And they're over there talking to, I can see everyone's face you know talking to sky the hates on going to do. I'm going to get a coke and dumped on this guy's head. So I thought this was marvelous idea. So I got the cope in walking over there and I'm looking and I'm I'm going to have to jump to dump this on this guy's head. Maybe. This isn't such a good idea. To jump. The by then. Jumped Slam Dunk on his head. In I just took off toward the bleachers. In I. In and out of people you know next thing I know I'm up in the bleachers really high looking around in the crowd and I don't I see him. Like this. was. Down in the crowd and he gave up and took off eventually. Facing. Absolutely dowse this guy with giant Cobra. Appreciated you do that Oh yeah. He got like a hero's welcome when I went back the older kids not to. Do Anything Man, can I tell you? It's to this day especially working restaurants still one of the things that I remember the most from our high school years was something Pete did as what we went to go visit Jamie at Pizza Hut. We were it was Mardi and Pete was sitting out one side facing us and there was a mother and her kid in the booth behind us and the kid kept jumping. Jumping on. The secrets anymore and as the kid jump Pete Spun scared the kid who felt unsafe. That's the only thing I think of. His he didn't say anything he touched the kid you didn't leave the booth, but he claws chaos. Like Amazing excellent. Still. While you're talking about pizza had stories around. Are Bike prior to make me laugh and then Mike Mike. Right, like almost walked into the back pretty much just this loud noise. Runs out and yells at me. God near funny. That's still laughing. Now, Chris Burnett the McDonald's. Check. It would've made that story so much. God. That's awesome. I remember taking the dough at pizza making it like a huge cock and just A break. Everything. And what did you do with the Doha afterwards It's turned into someone's pizza. This is last week folks. And that's why they're bankrupt now. Is the Special Twister Action Pizza. Script, Triple Decker Pizzas Pizza Hut where like you. It was like hit circle in the middle and it was like two pizzas on top of one another we. WanNa hear this. For us. Bacon in the middle was going to say, do you remember the time? I put so much I had to put it through twice and you guys got it still wron the middle. Like three pounds bacon in the middle of. All. Much. I just wanted to see what would happen. There's a shit making on that thing. Saying. All right might be your last one. Tell. You man like I don't I look back and like all the time that I tried to make people laugh best ones were with you guys. It was like we were all trying to make each other laugh at anything that happened after I left. Webster I did a lot but it was like variation on a theme like. All the best stuff I was like we just be hanging out and trying to do it and they were always like like you guys have these stories. I, always. Jamie's talking about me going there and screaming like it was like some quick thing that I would get everybody to laugh or something lake. Lake Ontario, just don away more. Easily. L. That story. Their story, I took my clothes off and went in Lake has. No. was I can't I can't do that I like going going to perkins in winning catch up on my face just walking you will stables having conversation. Just collapsing on the florist. Honestly that was the problem with this topic I'm like. What is just too much like I? was constantly him how many times did we take our pants off walked around somewhere just to get somebody to laugh young? Stephen I dropped trowel and random my car several Rehana bunch of cars I had no shirt with the seat covering my mandates driving. Up when got back from the Marines Kelly I was bowling on one side of the alley in I think it was Pete Marty was on the other side. And Pete comes running. Over to the drinking fountain fills his mouth looks at us the water pours out of his mouth, and then he does the run like this. Just writes back to the side and we're looking at me like fuck was I'm like are you don't WanNa know. Dying absolutely dying I will say that I will say that there is one that it it doesn't sound like a funny story but it it just sell was I because it was so bizarre and we may mention on the show before, but we were at Marti's house one time. And Marty was to give a little background. Marty was always. Destroying something in his house. I love them to death, but he was always putting a fist through something. Perhaps Pete would put a fish or something I don't know but it would. You be standing. You'd be standing in the basement and all of a sudden somebody would just take take their fists and it up into the ceiling. And during times out of ten, it was Mardi. himself. and. He's like you know God love them and. Then, one time I don't know whether that example is set or something or who actually sparked it. But there four or five of us just unloaded on this bar. And it looked like, Deniro in Goodfellas only like with Oliver Force. In everybody is laughing. I don't just like nonstop for like twenty minutes turning this bar into twigs. That's not the funniest. Thing I can remember I still remember can't coming over to Marty's house and it was either you or heat. Or maybe it was Su. So I don't know someone like. Got Check out the bar on stairs whereas some remodeling around here Jamie. All problem like. Weight 'cause I heard the story that Marty's dad came home and was like, Oh, about time somebody did that or some shit like that like some comment like that and I don't remember that I don't think I don't think we were there when his dad got. Somebody told me that the follow up to that story. But God. Damn. Like like it was absolutely demolished I couldn't believe it. House I I just can't believe he I heard he sold that place. Yeah Mark the garage one time when he tried to park the truck in it. I wouldn't even come a fraction of the way down. You we doing. He's GonNa know he's not gonNA nobody talking about the doors. 'cause he slammed into it didn't they didn't slam. was. Everything was bent not a whack and. He will know all house. White House sold because we got it for them they. Take Place. I guess another one I can think of is taking my pants off during Mulholland falls. Yeah we. See the Mojo and falls was funny and all, but I think executive decision was the better of the two what happened in executive decision? Yeah. I remember that we were at Tinseltown tax theatre opening night we were at almost at the very top in the Middle Oh that was executive session was. Desperate, measures desperate measures with instant Keaton. Sierra. Gets up watched to the aisle in the middle of the movie and all of a sudden you see the red underwear milky white. I'll. which is impressive stadium seating. fucking house and it was hard going up and. Letting loved. These back now my. The movie was awful movie select. Fuck. So many like behold follows was great but there wasn't a ton of. Like two hundred people that was happening. Everything we did was a random active insanity though. Forget these things Steve How about you like flying over chairs during? The Resurrection Tho- I block. Netto. Resurrection and like Steve I ain't good some candy. Like okay. We're just watching SHITTY MOVIE AND STEVE GOES FLYING OVER onto the grabbed his legs like. Sticking Hurt. Movie. Comeback. Louise. Mike with the Fifth Element where Bruce Willis was about to say I love Udura and he's like, don't do it. Don't do. Mike would the GATTY? disgraced. Movie so much. Why Fucker big daddy's? Stupid. Always try to get others I was GONNA, kick out of making others laugh making people smile and yeah. But sometimes you that you'd want to do it yourself laugh like. The. In the back of my car. was never a fun experience for me. I'd love to death the Jamie the back of my car and the second he found out I did like loud noises in the car. Maybe. You can just see. You never want to explode. You never wanted Jamie to find out. You didn't like something because then it'd be like all. Let's poke the bear. You. Of something because when Jamie and I went self Bruno with Michelle. I really think. Half of why Jamie was laughing so hard is because it was making her so unhappy. That didn't get the human all. My. Guests. Right there. have been the funniest because every time we laughed she got so mad. As okay. The the best thing about Michelle means there's so many wonderful things but Michelle loves it when you Fart, like really loud and. Oh my God I like I can make Michelle Laugh like the first twelve times I met her just by farting super. Loud. Remember. What movie did we see a Christmastime? Jamie? Was You In Mike and Mike Fart so bad I had the. Four. That Milk I would you just for Michelle? That's Remember we were. We saw Sunday at Christmas and I remember Mike was home. He might effort was so bad couldn't even sit still smell it. I. Get to get the full effect of what it's like to be out with us in public and somebody like blows ass like that. It's usually quiet and unusually somebody sits goes oh, it's ban over here. Were they break into like very loud historic sister laughter. He's right. Over here. And then you get the fuck out.

Nagara falls they take whip. Shaving cream or whipped cream. Back, yeah. Shaving cream doesn't fucking matter. They make a smiley face on my ass because I was sleeping on my stomach and freaking data with milk duds and then fucking take a towel and just whack the shit out of it and The funny thing is that I didn't fucking wake up through the whole guide. You did week I'll be like well. I was so pissed for the entire ride as. The podcast freezing angry. You bring that podcast easing angrily what the fuck I wasn't angry. pissed me off accused me of being miserable and I'm not. I love you point something out six days alone in a hotel room.

#212: Just Wash Your Hands!
"July, second twenty twenty from alcohol in California this is episode two hundred twelve. Up You can bet on that. Tape. Hi everybody welcome to you can bet on that a podcast for the recreational gambler. Of all and sitting across from me at a safe distance. Is Dr Mike Hello Well? We have been skyping lately during our podcasts to be safe and to be a good example, but we couldn't do it tonight. Could we Dr Mike now no. My daughter's took the IPADS so all the electronics that you would have been able to use to me are out of the house out of the House. And for me to try to walk you through installing skype on your phone and using it, there's any impossible. figure. So we're together again in the studio, but we both have masks on. We're playing it safe for being good citizens, and just so everyone knows marcus sitting across from me. Wearing a shirt that says I'm silently correcting your grammar. And our definitions of silently. Completely opposite. All right well, grammatically correct. Right, but whether I'm really silent or not, that's the. Okay. I just want the truth. That's all I. that's all I. Just don't like the lying. Yeah, I don't like to lie. Yeah, sure. Well, we were very close to getting a bill here in California, that would have legalized sports wagering. There was a bill that was headed to the California Senate Appropriations Committee and it was pulled the day before it was to be voted on due to opposition from tribal casinos, the tribes didn't like the fact that it would immediately allow for online wagering and they didn't like that. It would continue to allow card rooms in California to deal. Deal Nevada style table games with private entities banking. We've talked about this before. The card rooms in California not the full blown tribal casinos. They get away with dealing these games like blackjack like Mississippi. Stud Games like that. They get away with it because they just charge a commission to players and then a separate entity, just a person, a private person acts as bank, and really it's not so much a private person as like these syndicates. Right. So. The casinos didn't like that it didn't really address. What they think is a crime that these card rooms are coming day. Think it's illegal. That's their stance on. They're looking at that way because they WANNA monopoly. They want a monopoly. You know it's funny because they're complaining about that, even the online betting, but they had no problem taking money away from Vegas when they opened when all the Indian casinos got casinos right exact, they had no problem taking. Taking money away from Vegas and now somebody might take a little money away from them by betting online. You know it's just politics and yeah, the typical kind of thing one thing that did surprise us. Though is the proposal that the tribes came out with initially was that sports wagering would be legal, but all wages would have to be made in person at the casinos. They are very scared. That online wagering is going to hurt the bottom line of. Of the brick and mortar casinos and I just don't understand that well, I think somebody who wants to play blackjack craps, or or go to the casino for the bar or the entertainment, or whatever is still going to go. They're not gonna like online sports pet, and then say oh I. Bet enough this week I'm not going to go play crabs. The only thing I can figure is that if they don't allow online wagering that means people who really. Really want to bet on. Sports will go to the Casino, and then they'll spend their money at other games right, and that's their whole motive, but the thing is. That would be great. I'd have no problem with that if they're. Casinos were anywhere near any. That's the thing right. You know because seriously we couldn't go every day. No, it's feasibly not possible just from where they're located right and we actually live closer to casinos than a Lotta people. Say Tribal Casinos because you know those are the full blown ones. Oh Yeah Yeah. I mean for us. It would be a chore, even the go to the closest one which would be Baroni it would still be like twenty minutes to get there twenty minutes to get back in twenty minutes there. Yeah, and that would be best case scenario, and then later in the day. If you wanted to make more bets, you couldn't go right. What's Nice about online is okay. Here's the morning. Games are done now. What am I going to do in the afternoon Games during college football he, we bet more per. If we one more in the. Afternoon, yeah, that's for sure well. The proposals that are now being bandied about would only allow sports betting in person at tribal casinos, not at race tracks. That was another thing too that they didn't like the idea that this original bill would allow it to take place at racetracks as well. We'd have to do it in person that tribal casinos with the possibility of slowly phasing in online wagering over the next few years. In any case, it looks like sports wagering here is farther away than we'd hoped. We were hoping to see something on the ballot in November, and it's looking less likely that that will happen. There is some good news, though if sports wagering is finely legalized here in California chances are very good that real craps and roulette will also be legalized at tribal casinos as part of that legislation tacked onto the bill. So that's good. Another thing that bothers me is there's a lot of ways to think about things. And why doesn't the Casino thank? Hey, we'll have wagering. Online's not going to hurt us because on Saturday of college, football or Sunday, we're going to have a big. Yeah Party. Promote this the heck out of it and we're going to get people here and they'll be doing. They're betting here maybe on Tuesday night. They're not betting right, but on Saturday Sunday. We're going to get him here and we're going to keep them here all day. Yes, there's football games all day, so they'll be betting and they'll probably want to drink and they'll probably want to spend money. Probably go do other, or they'll come with a spouse who's going to? To go off and play other Games xactly I. Mean I just think they're kind of losing out on money here. Well, we're looking at this kind of from our own perspective. We want to be able to bet on sports legally, and we want to be able to do it online, so we don't have to go to the casino, but I agree with you Mike I think in a way. They're shooting themselves in the foot right? Yeah, that's what I think. It's never good to drive business away. I mean even if you think you know in the short run, it might help you in the long run. It's never good to drive business away now. Well as longtime will recall at Harris Southern California, where we often go before the pandemic, they had four craps tables. They weren't always open of course, but generally on a weekend I busy night. They would all four be open and we were disappointed when they reopened that they only had two regular crafts tables. They had also installed a role to win craps table, which is that hybrid machine dealer table, but only two craps tables while we were very pleased when we found out that they were adding third craps table, and in fact when we went out. There are a few weeks ago. They had semi set up. I guess they weren't quite ready to start using it, but it was there the. The chips there on Friday, but on Saturday. I did play on it. Oh, you did okay so I didn't realize that well. Okay so a third table, so we were very pleased with it. Well, that was short live. Because now it turns out. They're gonNA. Bring in another ruling to win table, and that's what's going to go in its place right so we're down again to just two craps. And that definitely came into play this last Saturday. When you and I went, it was a big giveaway, Saturday, and so we figured it would be crowded. You and I had to go up there separately. I was doing some things Outta town, and so we just decided to meet their and you got. Got There first and you aren't even able to get on the table right I waited about an hour, and they were both twenty five dollars tables right right both twenty five dollar tables. They moved the one up to fifty, and still nobody left so I waited about an hour finally, somebody left his seat. And then you were about oral I'd say another hour before you came. And in that our nobody left I. Mean I got the one seat so in the two hour period there was this one became available, and there were a lot of other people waiting Yup, and what I did when I arrived. They actually let me kind of bet with you so I was actually sitting back aways. Aways from the table and I had some chips, and I would just give you chips to bet for me. That actually worked fine I, had no problem with that. Although would have been nice to actually be up in the table and be able to throw the dice, but finally I got in maybe about an hour after that, but yet for most of the night, a fifty dollar table and a twenty five dollar table and they were full. It's so funny because what had happened is they weren't expecting the new role to win table to come. It was GONNA be like some time at the end of July or August. This is what I was told, but for some reason, the manufact- said. We'll have it. There Monday so that Saturday morning. They decide to take the third craps table out now and get all the electrical stuff writing right or put it in Monday and I said to one of the casino managers who was talking to me about Oh. We'll get you on as soon as we can. You know he was being very nice. I said well. Why did you guys take it out now? Why why don't you just wait until Sunday morning? Or Monday morning i. mean this is your busiest night. You need that table an easily. Somebody made a bad decision and I was talking to my wife later, and I'm like. You know just a bad decision like the carpet. Shoot I sure hope they get some more regular craps tables there, but I don't think it's going to happen now. They don't really have the space for it, and they may not have the dealer for it to be honest. Probably a problem, too, but the thing is is it's a craps casino there? Ton of people who WanNa play and maybe what they'll do is the to roll to win. Tables will be five dollar tables, and the other two will be twenty five higher i. think that's what it's going to have to be going forward. Yeah, well, we typically do not speak ill of people that we know on the show. At least of course, we do it privately I. Mean that's just part of being a person, but. If we do talk about somebody poorly. We don't mention their name a dog doggone. It I'm going to mention this guy's name Mike. Okay right. I'm have nothing to do with this. I really feel like I need to call this guy out. Okay. His name is Jay. He's a regular player at Harris Southern. California I'm sure he doesn't listen to the show, but regulars there who do listen to the show. You all know who jay is if you play craps. Kind of a fixture there right, and what's his personality like I? Don't know it's kind of a mixed bag. He's not that great when he drinks. He's not like loud in your face, but he's rude. He's a little coarser. Let's say. Winning strong yeah. So! The other night were out there and Jay is on our table, and the table was getting a Phil. That's when they bring chips to the table. You know when the tables law chips. The security guard brings chips to the table. They count them out and put him there at some casinos. The game will continue during a Phil, but at Harris Southern, California they stop the game so I thought? Okay good. This'll be my chance to go to the restroom so I went to the restroom and I'm in there. And I finish up business and I'm washing my hands, and I see J in there. And he finishes his business walks out, doesn't wash his hands okay? Now that's disgusting enough under normal circumstances, but we're GONNA a pen temic and he's just walking by the sinks. Right right so I go back to the table and I tell the dealers hey I just came some Jaden wash hands i. mean it's the kind of thing where. Maybe I wouldn't have said anything. Under normal circumstances were in a pandemic. I want to to know while you're at a table where you're touching the chips. He's touching yeah, so. So I tell him that there is kind of get wide, and one of the dealers handed him the squirt bottle of the disinfectant for his hands, and he's sort of angrily. Brush them off. Yeah kind of with his hand. I'm not going to do that. Yeah, it's like! Oh, my gosh, absolutely horrendous, so I am calling out j. what a terrible thing to do under these circumstances. Well I've told people patients and people I know there are two things to be learned from this pandemic that I think are the two big take home, things and I wish you'd hear more about this. I hear all kinds of political talk, and all kinds of after sure, but the two things that I think are important. Is Number One when you're sick? Don't go out. Don't get your hair done. The casino don't go to work. Don't go to the market. Don't go to the movies. If you're sick. Just stay home for a couple days and get better, and then you know once you know you're better, and you're not gonNA. Spread anything not just for Corona virus. That's for Flus, whatever colds everything and then number two is wash your hands. People need to wash their hands more. I mean I always have. That's why I'm. A hands are so beat up. I mean my job requires that gesture, but people should just wash their hands a little more, and that would stop the spread of things and somebody walking out of a bathroom in a casino where you touched up without washing. Your hands is pretty inconsiderate. Okay, that's a nice way to put it I'm GonNa put it that way. In a nice way, there's other language. I'd use normally if it was just you and I. And I don't blame you for calling him out, yeah! So that's my take. Okay, yeah, well. You're absolutely right. I mean the handwashing. and. People think Oh. I didn't really do much in the bathroom. It doesn't matter right. This is your opportunity to wash your hands right right? That's it that's. That's my point only opportunity to get to wash your hands what you should be doing right? Yeah, A. Just. Sino had somebody recently that. Touch anything you know. You can just zip my pants I. Don't really have the touch anything and I'm like but your a bathroom. Touch your zipper. You didn't touch anything. All right so at least I got that off my chest. Hey. Thanks to everyone who's been clicking through our Amazon link. Remember whenever you're going to buy something through Amazon. Please go to our page, I. You can bet on that dot com, and click through. Amazon linked towards the top of the page all right. Let's get onto some voice. Mails remember last episode. William was on his way to Horse Shoe Bolger city and he said he would call back with report, so you ready to hear it Mike I do all right Bonnie, Bonnie, here about boys your seat. Here we go. Hey Mark Mike is William for four with a trip for Porch all really enjoyable. Else's trip report so I figured I should give one myself so this was a horseshoe motor city, basically a twenty four hours, and had not play craps in the long long time, especially not fiercely, but after listening to two hundred nine episodes does has I was very ready for a serious crash on. So the good news is after I get my tear credit. multiplier I will be member of the degenerate seven Stars Club. The bad news is they'll probably be a while before I. Can afford fuel or certainly an airline ticket to get to the casino after this crap on. But the quickest overview math were required at the table or not. If you're walking around or playing slots and the tables are pretty crowded even for a week. But okay, so I finally got to the crap table fifteen minimum. Eight, hundred seventy five dollars and thirty four dollars for the small talk I'd never played this bet before I did discover that that is a crusher of if you don't ever hit it because I was playing ten ten ten every time. So I got to the table. Mugabe's rolling. So I waited he hit a couple of points, and then I bought in for thousand, and he hit two points, which is great. I was putting being lazy. Put Twenty five dollars in the past line against the three ships, and I was putting a hundred odds and I would do the same to comebacks if I had that opportunity, so I Beth Martin for the dealers, and they were very appreciative from was what about fifteen? No, it's not about when exactly fifteen shooters without hitting a point. And that didn't go well. My Nestle, thousand or buying long-on gotTA marker for. Two thousand more. Ranch, that pretty quickly and after the. Shooter with no point sort of bumping up my eyes, and my past two, hundred and fifty, maybe two hundred I think only six rate once or twice. And then I had to find two thousand five hundred dollars shift in my pocket. Use those 'cause I kept hearing. You guys say, wait it out for the big role kept trying out for the big role. Problem is four thousand dollars. A big role that happened about I. Don't know probably thirty five forty five minutes. You know I don't mind losing five or ten thousand for a long weekend in. Vegas, that happens a usually. That's what happens. We play a lot, but man four thousand forty five minute crafts. They can't work very off before me, but I. Actually kind of had a good time, but. My sister crafts coaches. Do you have any advice anything else to do differently? I knew I should have only fifteen on the pass line up behind it, but that must take care. What can you do differently when fifteen shooters in a row now able to make a point I? Mean that's I. Don't what else we say this. William. You're beating the odds because you know, somebody should have made a boy. And Mike you and I have talked about this many times where we will lose so much money on a session way more than we would on a typical vegas trip right and it just blows our minds right. Yeah, we go out to Harris for four hours and lose more than we do in a whole week in Vegas and we're like. How in the world is that happened? We're baffled on the way home. And I mean you know it's a nasty ride home? It's hard on Mark So. You got that right? Yeah you did say a while back. The thing about crabs is just being able to survive, and then you get to that role and I. Know What you're saying. Yeah, yeah, it's true. It's just that sometimes. That role doesn't come or you know. Will you make came like ten minutes after you love right I always think that walking away is like Oh God I know I'm going to walk away in ten minutes later. Somebody's. Somebody's GonNa roll six to the fire, and everyone's going to be going home. Happy but me, and it's just the way it is sometimes yup, and all small tall. Yeah, if you're not hitting that, you've even mention how you kind of prefer the fire. Bet because you're not constantly putting money out there, but all small tall. If it's not hitting, it's quite a drain on your will. Yeah, especially on sevens on the come out. Thirty bucks out there to seven. Come Out, you got to replace thirty. You know the fire bed just as there and that's why they got rid of the far right. because. They're making a fortune on the all tall small. Now when it hits, it's great sure and you really feel good and if you happen to. We've had a few times where you know in one session. Somebody's hit them all twice. Yes, yes, and that's great and you feel good about that, but it's way more common to never hit him. Well we'll in congratulations on making seven stars, and the good news is that because of the pandemic Caesar's is extending the eligibility for that to January thirty first twenty, twenty two. Right, so you're going to be seven stars up until that point, so this is really the year to try to get it. Especially, because now I think it's one hundred, twenty, five thousand tear credits is for seven stars, so not quite as many credit, and you get it for longer, and you're going to take advantage of some of the cops and giveaways and stuff that they have no. You know it is something you can use now. Don't lose your shirt. Stars intimate. But if you do have the opportunity, yeah, this is the time to do it. Yeah, definitely all right next up our good friend, Melanie. Hello Mark. Hello, Dr Mike Gets Melanie from Colorado today is June seventeenth and at adm. Colorado Casinos opened with many caveats at safety measures in place. Everyone has to wear masks, employees gamblers people there for the restaurant everyone. It's required when you walk in. They have one entrance that you come in another that you exit. You don't come in the same place, actually the first person to greet me at Amir Star in. Blackhawk asked me if I wanted to sign a petition. Limits and a greater variety of table games, and while I am all for that, his petition was one that people had already signed on a clipboard and I did not want to touch his clipboard pen, so I declined that, but I am all for the idea of it, and maybe we'll get. Dr Mike Out After Maybe this petition will bring about some legislative change. It was line. This asked me by symptoms. I said no th. There was some kind of a thermometer. It also had my picture and there's I. Don't know if they took my picture also. They asked me for my driver's license in my casino. Players Card I gave them those things I. Don't know if that's for contact tracing, or but that was the only casino that asked me for that information I had one other casino asked me if I wanted to be on a contact tracing list. In case, anyone tested positive I thought that was outstanding, so I had my mask on my in ninety five. I spend all day. At work wasn't that different cumbersome for me. Really everyone. We're their masks. Everyone was complaining they had to be and people were great about keeping social distance. At the bars, they are not allowed to serve drinks to people who walk up and like to buy a drink from the bar. You can sit at the bar. Every other machine is turned off and have a drink at the bar there or order one otherwise. You have to order it from cocktail server, so she was one cocktail server and she was running around like. Like crazy. The bartender was super busy because he was also making the drinks including coffee and soda for the restaurant upstairs. Somehow they didn't have drinks, or maybe we're allowed I. Don't know but poor guy. They went from three months off doing nothing to running around like crazy. The cocteau it was like arm hurts so bad from the trae she has the android for. For some tylenol and he had to think about where they put it. Everything was very clean. People were super, friendly and happy to be back together was really fun to be in the Vibe of casino again. Sadly no table games they are going to reevaluate that in three weeks and see if they might open table games, poker traps blackjack, none yet. What up to central. Central City where they maintain that old West Spirit. All those saloons back in the wild west days tried to maintain those furniture does the spirit of the place there was a two thousand nine hundred sixty dollars royal flush progressive. Oh my goodness at the bar, so I sat there and tried to hit that one that was on twenty five cent deuces wild had several. For the royals, anyway, a lot of fun really had a great time. I doubt I will be back until things change substantially, but then I really glad. I got to go back. Have a great time. I have to really truly nothing socially for three whole months I know everyone in the same boat, but it was really fun to hear. Catch up to each other one more thing. I forgot to mention when I went to the last casino I had moved my car which had been out in the sun. It was really hot in my car went up to the casino door. My temperature read one hundred two point six, so he jumped over five degrees from sitting in my hot car for two minutes. She said that's been happening to send me wait a few minutes. Lavin then it was okay and one last thing would. Would interesting part in the bathrooms. There are typically three stalls because these are pretty small casinos. Generally, there's two sinks. They're about three feet apart. One of the things is off, and so I looked up, and there was a sign that said this is off to maintain social distancing, which I totally because only three feet apart. However I'm a little concerned. It is going to discourage people from waiting in line to wash their hands because there's only one thing for the whole bathroom, so. I get it, but I'm not sure about that one. There you go! He was a great time I. CAN'T WE DO? Hey, mark, J was doing huge social distancing from you. I was at the same year into close to the yet. It is kind of funny I. What they probably should do is set up some temporary handwashing stations, maybe right outside the restroom or throughout the casino. I think some casinos are doing that or at least disinfectant stations, but that would be a good way to encourage people to wash your hands more before we get to Melanie's call here, I got to say. My brother told me and I forgot this on her last podcast. That Sam will they have social distancing in the bathrooms? He said every other urinal was blocked. Okay, right, every other stall was blocked off in every other sink was blocked off. So you are far apart now. That's great. I'm thinking. If I'm urinal and I wanted just blurt out I. don't remember eating corn. Pretty loud so the guy. He might not hear you. Abby so far away so far. That actually is I didn't think about that, but that is one of the benefits of all. This social distancing is I don't have to hear you talk as much. Here I think Mike said some and I'm going to ask him to repeat themselves. He ate court I don't get it. Glide Melanie went. It'd be great if Colorado did up there limb. Yeah, so for people who don't know what Melanie was talking about that petition right now. Colorado has a maximum limit of one hundred dollars per wager. That's the maximum you can do on any wager, so the petition was to try to raise that. Yeah, I kind of understand. They're thinking, but people are. GonNa waste their money, and whatever way they deem necessary, so I I'm not for a five thousand dollar limit or something, but you would think a couple thousand. Yeah, sure. No. It would definitely help when it came to poker as well because they'd. Poker tables. You can't go all in if you know you've got more than one hundred dollars in front of you right, so yeah, yeah, it'd be hard to play like you know eight sixteen no limit. Right it'd be a hundred dollar cap on your dollar cab. It'd be Kinda hard. We definitely have heard quite a few stories of people having higher than normal temperatures, because they come from a hot car or just in Las Vegas words hot outside, and you know they're walking in, so that definitely happens every day in my office. Does any take everyone's temperature? We've been having him. Stand outside because our waiting rooms kinda small right so we say just call us when you get here. And she goes out and she gives them the questionnaire. She takes her temperature and we've had people. You know one hundred two. And it's like okay well. Come in and stand in the waiting. They come in. They stand in for thirty seconds then all of a sudden. It's ninety seven point one. They probably got her ID the first place for contact tracing. Yeah, and that's great. uh-huh! Sure there was some problem. Let's say you didn't even use your player card or or they wouldn't take the time if they have everyone's. Upfront. They're ready for reading that is that's the best I've heard great because that is very important and that that's the problem in the United States right now. We don't do enough contact tracing. Close to Europe and stuff. You know the American I think the American philosophy is kind of like you know I have my right to privacy right, and so you're not gonNA. Take my information because you're gonNA use it against me. And I not that I'm against that I kind of agree with that, too, but in this case it is important and I would want to know if there was some out I would to. All right next call. Good Morning Gentlemen this is Corey from Fargo. North Dakota. Back Out Vegas to morrow June nineteenth haven't been there since the Super Bowl in which I did send in Karma donation. You guys and I also was talking about video poker assignment. How my forty trips to Vegas I had only hit four deuces one time while it just happened again this past trip. I was playing. At the Bar, probably sitting there for about four or five hours misleading to my left. Aces and she kept hitting aces hundred bucks hundred bucks two hundred bucks two hundred bucks at a time. I was getting down to my last thirty bucks or something like that and we had a top golf appointment in a couple of a half hour pants, so I hoped it up to buck. Spin. Anyway it was granted. So that was good, and then on the prop some super bowl cash. Waste as much as I. that's on, so that was good. So. The competition for this trip, so expect the same results and I hope to give up. The biggest is like for me. I don't make people that much so I think just fine. Thanks guys. Thanks again. We mentioned his carmen donation on our last episode, so hopefully worked out for him I worried though it seems like when people say are gonNA. Call back and let you know how it goes seems like more often than not on this show Kinda like Williams caller earlier, they call back and didn't go very well. Yeah, well, maybe it's a new. We've turned a new leaf mark man. He'll call back and say oh, my God, another huge win. Okay I hope so. I didn't like people so. I'm assuming he just doesn't like them. Along. Zoom. He doesn't like us. All right. Let's hear from Ayrshire. Hey Mark Dr Mike my name's Astra. I'm calling from New Mexico. I don't know if I've ever heard anyone calling from New Mexico about a casino trip report for you i. went last night, and in New Mexico were still under some pretty heavy restrictions. We have I think two casinos open out of are maybe ten or fifteen I'm really fortunate that I live about within an hour radius. I'm probably about nine casinos. I could go to. This particular one I went last night. The COPS table I'm relatively new player. I'm pretty young and wanted to start out with a few hundred. Thirty to play and table was really cold. I wasn't doing too hot and came off. The craps table decided to play the slot machine for a little while. Came back up to where I had originally started with, and went back to the table, and almost doubled my money, so I got out, while I could sit. Casino is falling pretty much. The same restrictions that you guys have been talking about for the ones in Vegas and in California they have practically grasp between every single slot machine, so people can still use every slot machine. They didn't have intern buff. At the crap table they had everyone why before they called you to come up and play. Of course, there was a wait list with a one casino open. They wiped everything down for you. There were like you said only two dealers and they would alternate being the stick man, but that's twenty to give you a call him I'm a big fan of your podcast and relatively new fan, but I'm big Fan I. Got all my friends into your podcast, and now we We listened on a biweekly basis. Thank you doing what you do, and the hopefully can play my call. Good thanks Asher. Yeah, longtime listeners will know that. Dr Taylor is really our new. Mexico expert although it does seem when he calls in. It's mostly for Las Vegas reports. Quite a bit. Yeah, yeah, yeah! Waiting List for the tables. That's something that we have heard. Some casinos are doing. It is not being done. They're not even making an attempt at Harris Southern California and they probably should at least during certain times I. Don't get that I asked about it, and they said No. No, we don't have list I I? Don't know maybe maybe brings in more controversy than it helps. I guess, but if he's still. Though I mean, but yeah I. Think they should have a list. I mean it'd be easy. Do Easy enough to do. Yeah, maybe we should help. They don't get a list. Only because you know when they see you. There is light up and it's like ooh. Doctor Mike's here. Let's get him. Can't give bumped to the top of the list. Maybe that's the problem. Maybe they think someone WanNa. Pay Us off to. Bump heads drew. We, don't WanNa make Dr Mike Mad. Yeah, that's it. All right next up is our Buddy Ryan. Hey Guys Ryan found Las Vegas just wanted to give you an update on what's going on on some of the local casinos around here? I noticed that they have a lot of these new crap. Machines places where it's kind of like a shoot to win, you know everybody sits around the circle, and everyone has their own screen to bet on, but each person has their own little dice inside a Cuban and so each person's playing their own game, so there's six seats, and then everybody has their own dicing. You play your own game across, but it's just like a mini shoot to win. Also noticed a lot of these casinos here are trying to cut down on the no touch for the chips. So but one casino here has been doing a local casino here. They been basically using roulette chips where you walk up to the table and you cash in and each person being assigned their own color of chips that way another person is never touching your same color, only person that ever touches it as you and the dealer. So you cash in someone gets a paying. Someone gets Brown. Someone gets blue and you know. Show them around, and it's only you and the dealer touching them. Doesn't really make sense to meet because each time the dealers touching each other's chips, and then they're touching different colors, and then they're going back to the person so. It doesn't make sense but I think they're just trying to cut down on the frequent touch not really sure that women, but my first time playing with it on in for five hundred in cash out at a little over four grand because I had a guy. It's all tall small twice in the same. It was a monster Roland I know. He hit. I think four different hard sixes in his first role. It was it was Nice, Dr? Mike would have amazing a lot of money. I made good money, but not quite as much pretty sure he would hard six. Definitely your friend. anyways, I don't know if this new. You guys, but hope it interesting to you Ari guys. Thanks. Ryan actually sent us a follow up email to let us know that station. Casinos in Las Vegas area are no longer rating table game players yeah I saw that boy. Does that make sense at all I? Just don't understand that I. mean all you're GonNa do is chase table game players away I. Mean if you want to be just a slot joint, be just a slot joint eight I even have table games. If you're not gonNA, raise them. Is that their way to make up for LOSSES DURING THEIR CLOSURE Yeah, I don't understand that. 'cause it's going to you. Know who it's going to chase away. Is the bigger better? The heavier gamblers, a regular guy? What differences make I'm going to play forty bucks or something, but some guy who's buying in for five thousand. He wants to get rating is for sure you want some calms Gosh Mike, even lower limit players if I were a lower limit player, I probably wouldn't play there either because I like getting just a free meal or something. It's five dollars free play every week or something right, but sure and most of the station casinos, our local right there local casino. They're locals and they're looking for the like you, said the free meal once a week or you know the free giveaway, or whatever yeah, that doesn't it doesn't make sense. It seems like a bad business model. The me we'll hopefully that will change. What Ryan was saying about the what they're trying out with the chips were they're giving people. What is essentially relationship? So you know Mike. You would only have blue chips I would only have yellow chips. Let the nomination. That's the thing if you're at a craps table, right? You can't do that if you buy in for three thousand dollars. You'RE GONNA have to have some five dollar denominations because maybe your place for. All FIS because that's off is right. When they pay. If I had a thirty dollars six I get thirty five dollars well if I bought him for green shifts. What are they gonNA. Do up it to just give me fifty dollars or. Twenty five I mean neither one is really good for the Casino. Understand, it at other table games. Kind of Stan right, but even at blackjack. How do you do if you're playing a three to two? Yes, sure. Even a sixty five game, right? Anna ultimately it's like Ryan, said okay. Yeah, you're the only one touching those chips along with the dealer, but the dealers touching everyone so. Transmission is broken their. Nets and yeah, we haven't played on those. Crafts machines, but we've seen them at least online I think the. D has them the Strat, but yeah kind of a good way to go if you don't, I'd like that more than than regular bubble crowd bubble especially, if there at a time limit I think you. Have to be a time writer. Because you're not waiting for any other people or anything, so you'd have plenty of time. I'd see now that I might play. Okay, although once again. It's not going to be as much fun because you know hard. Six comes up on that. You're the only one that bet it. Or Bet right because it's only your game now you and I both like this social aspect game, even if it's just socializing with the dealers. Crabs would not be fun for me if I had to pay super strict attention and couldn't turn around and yell as loud as I can into your ear something stupid. Right crafts wouldn't be fine, which luckily I don't have to hear as often now again. Thanks to social distancing. I. Didn't they? Yell something into. Your was pretty loud. Yeah I, don't remember exactly what it was, but I remember it was loud. These mass don't stop I mean. You can still hear me across the Casino. Next call. Hey Mark and Dr Bob. This is Amazon Wally calling in. been playing quite a bit here lately. In Arizona, California and Nevada one thing I noticed is some of the casinos are taking pictures from or not some require mass or not? The question is when I first started posts. Kovin and the casinos opened up. Seem to be hitting quite a bit of jackpots. hit quite a few hand as on video poker. No royal flushes US covert yet, but the question. Is You mentioned on your last podcast that you were a little bit? They haven't been hitting as much here lately. Just wanted to see what everyone else. Else was thoughts. Were you know I hit quite a few ham? As once they opened up and went on the dry spell, a quite a few ear, recently and back on the dry spell again again. Royal flush is a lot of quads with kickers for These the Ham pays, but that's about it. I'll be all doing good. Thanks for what you're doing. Appreciate it have a good. If casinos loosened up at all once they reopened, they could only loosen up their slots. You can't loosen up table games. You can't even loosen up video poker now. You can make the pay tables better on video poker, but if they're class three machines, you can't set them to hit royal flushes or four of a kinds or anything like that more often right, so the only thing would be slots, and that's possible that it's happened, but now with you and me. We've just been on lucky this year. Certainly you can't loosen up a craps table. So I mean you know we're kind of confined to the role? Whatever the Roller I liked it. He goes by Arizona Wally. That's great. Mind Every time I hear the name Wally. I think of crocodile. Dundee because wally was the name of his friend back in Australia. Older Guy Okay and it's been a while, and they called them like wally. Wally from the little area they were. It was like glitter Gulch wasn't glitter goals, but he was something like Negash Glitter Gulch. Wally, when I hear wally. I think Wally Cox which really shows. He was on Hollywood squares he was. He was mister peepers. That was I'm actually too young to remember that, but. He was quite a character actor yet during the sixties and Seventies. Yeah, and then, of course you think of all E. Wally? Yeah, that's what I thought. You were GONNA say. Wally just that old guy from Crocodile Dundee. Favorite part of those movies all right well. If you like Arizona Wally I, know you like Mississippi. He's he's a favorite. He's a favorite. He's a regular here we go. Eight. Martin Dr Mike dismissed the rob with the trip report from Mississippi. There was a couple of weeks ago now. My wife met some rain down there for a couple of nights day. It was actually a first trip. Saying at the Hotel de doesn't real fancy on that side of things, but he got the job done on the gambling aspect of it. The first night gets placed on ten dollars. Cows with very few folks allow. These table actually gets played. Double Hands time pretty much got crushed. Right off the bat there. Is a little rain over to the highland video poker bet crush there as well so we made it a quick nights on night one, but made a strong comeback on day to actually went over to the video poker bar. There found myself actually normally, I've just played quarter video poker, but decided to throw twenty twenty five bucks in the machine. Just give. Give it a go real quick while I was watching a soccer game and actually ended up rolling that twenty five bucks into I think it was a little over eight hundred bucks after get three different kinds, so was definitely one of my bigger wins in a big highlight there, but the trip lost a little back later that night across video poker we introduce. Introduce. Some of our friends to a little bit of gambling my buddies her first trip. She wasn't too impressed with Pie. Gal, but once they get planes in video poker, a little bit more entertaining I guess for a new person of gambling. They're outside of the gambling. The pool set up there. It was really nice. The drinks were reasonably priced. Actually it was. Was a nice changeup from Vegas because there really wasn't any security around or anything else so ingrained that we have from the Casino Bar, the room or anything else. We just kind of wall tried him with no big deal, so it was kind of Nice and relaxing and not too expensive, either the other kind of where the thing for the trip and. Just kind of came upon it as I. was sitting there playing video poker one day, but when the bartender ask for my car, and as I asked for a drink, before even started playing and apparently there and I don't know if it had to do with the Diamond Lounge being closed, but By showing my diamond cars, they were getting a pre drink anytime. I wanted so. I just go up there so from the point that I. realized it through the rest of the trip. I just go up there and tip them every time, but I didn't even have to put money in the machine, so that was a really nice benefit there, too. I'm not sure if that's always the case. But at least it was for now, and so that was a really nice break there so anyway. Great overall trip. It was really nice to get back into the casino and even bring back a little extra money off this, so it's. All the things on. You. Report, yeah, thanks rob, and that's really good information to you know a lot of caesars properties are making up for their laurel, lounges being closed. They used to be called diamond lounges now. They're called Laura, lounges. I in fact Darrell at the seven stars, insider website posted a list of some of the things that casinos are offering seven stars players to make up for what they're missing for. Example at southern California as seven stars members. We got to free buffets every day, and since they're buffet is closed now now. We get a forty dollar food credit each week. So that's the way they're making up for that. But, it's always good to ask what a property might be offering customers to make up for the lounges being closed, so yeah, just especially at the bar say here is your Laura Lounge Open Oh it's not. What are you doing in lieu of it being available to diamond players? Yeah it actually that's great. Just get a free drink for a tip. Yup, and boy ten dollar pi-chao poker at a table with three players maximum. That's fantastic. That's unbelievable really. I. Know it's not making money on that team loud. That's great. That probably is not enough to pay the dealer so again that slow. Although rob did say, he was playing two hands, so maybe play in twenty on each, but still. This is actually the limited number of seats at a table now is great for people who like to play to hands. Oh you can always do. Right sometimes, you're at a table and it's like it's Kinda crowded and you feel like a jerk. If you play two hands, because people are wanting to play and stuff so now it's like Oh. Play, do hand. Yeah, it's Nice. All right next call. Fe Market Duct might this is Alex from Atlanta Georgia. He'll doing well sworn to call and give a brief trip report was finally get out to Harris. Cherokee casino north. Carolina and I lost, but I've never felt so great losing since how they would end a four month drought, not playing. The conditions are pretty good. Everybody's required to wear masks. Whatever it just standing around, or you're playing, so that made me so somewhat safe three people per side of the craps table and three people at the blackjack table. There's no sex dividers, but all in all felt good just wanted to let people know that are contemplating going to Cherokee. They have it pretty much under control. It's not optional. Even though I just heard that all of Caesar's property requiring the masks, so it's a good thing. anyways popular doing well take by your masks now are mandatory for players as well in Las, Vegas. When they first opened, it was encouraged, but optional, and I heard from people who had been there that not very many people were wearing. Right me as far as players staff. All was bedroom. Players were not. Not right and that has changed. People may have heard to Caesar. Palace employees who recently died from the virus, he. I was able to verify Mike we were talking about this last week. He did work at CAESARS palace. He was apparently part of the janitorial staff Oh. So you know this thing is not over right well, and once again as a courtesy, and as a help to your fellow man, you need to cover. Exactly it's all about the other person. Yeah, right and bottom line. That's it bottom line I agree. All right one more call. It's from our good friend Marty. He Market Mike Mardi Foam. Reno with update on gaming during pandemic, so as I mentioned last time I called in all of the dice tables here were only two dealers. Did you base stealers? No stick man what they've now done is they've now added the stick man back on the evening shift on swing shift. They've added them back in I was talking to one of the pitfalls is here and he said that not having a stick man, even though there was only six people at the table. Table was slowing them down when there was a lot of middle action makes sense as those bets are the best for the house. They wanted to speed them back up to the end of the stick back in. So that's number one number two that happened last Friday night at a unnamed casino, but again you can guess there's only doesn't remember so here in Reno that have craps at seven PM at one of the tables. They announced that they were now going to four players per end. You know. I thought that the Gaming Commission mandated only three on land, but I'm happy they did I was actually at the table. At the time. They squeeze it other guy in not really sleeping, but anyway affordable end and we play that way for for hours, and no one said anything I'll go back out this weekend and see if there's still like that looks like there's still three to an end on day shifts and sport or an end on Swe shift at this particular Casino Anyway I'll call you actually love the show, guys. I don't think gaming in Nevada mandated that three was the Max on each side of the craps table I think the casinos had to provide the safety procedures to gaming to get approvals to reopen, and it might be their discretion, but yeah I. Don't think it was a mandate. It is interesting, though Mike, because a couple of weeks ago, you looked at me and you said how long do. Do you think it'll be until they allow four players on each side of the table here southern California and you thought it might have been this last Saturday when they had the big crowds, but it wasn't yeah I was really surprised that people waiting I'm surprised they didn't say okay. Let's slept for aside because you could still be fairly far apart. with four five. No, no, no. You probably could in as long as none of those four people had any complaints. About it, you'd think the Casino would have done that, but they stuck to their guns so proud of him for you think it's still coming though I think it's I. Mean I think it's coming I? Think as well when we talked about that. There hadn't been quite as much of an uprising now. That's true, too, so that kind of has changed things a little so it. It might be a little further off than I think, but at that point I was thinking Oh. You know they'll go a few weeks and if things aren't bad, they'll up to yeah. I could understand it, but I'll tell you even though we don't like the fact that we might not find a spot when we first arrived at the Casino, I love having all that room. You like having that room and I love. It's a fast game Oh. Yes. With all your stupid debts. Dealers used to handling six people, and so some of the less adequate dealers. Let's put it that Nice Way. Pretty, fast, you know you're right. Love that fast game now does that help us probably about? Definitely not until you that right? But I do like it all right well. That's going to wrap it up for this episode. Hey, we WANNA. Thank some people for some pay. PAL donations first of all recurring donations, from Brian and Sarah from Josh from James, and also some donations from Matt from Tennessee he says Karma donation for my wife on her last dental clinical boards this weekend, and for the craps tables on my upcoming trip to Caesar's southern. Indiana July seventeenth. I've decided to parlay every way hit in honor of Dr Mike Sorry Mark Hey. Don't say sorry to me. You play. However you want, so does he had all those hard ways of art? Yeah I hope he's like in your face more. And also a donation from Thomas says thanks for all the work you do on the pod Karma's I'm headed to local east coast casinos for the first time this week. Have a vegas trip planned for early August. Hope still goes through. Yeah, we hope so to Thomas. Thanks very much.

I was a little self conscious. About my grammar. You know that's not true. I don't know there's not much to say mark. We may have baseball we may not. We may have basketball we may not. We may have football we may not. We might have school we might. Not. You know I don't know. Well. We did talk on the last episode about how we would love to go to circa for their opening their casino opening in October, and we are seriously considering that now it'll depend on how things play out, but we're really looking towards those dates now. Yeah, yeah, I was thinking the other day. You know normally I'd be okay. We're going sure, but I can't right now because I don't even know. Know how we're going to go I mean if the governor closes down again or something I mean who knows. Yeah, so as time gets closer, I think by maybe September the end of the summer we'll have a better idea, but I would like to go to that and then. I would like to go in December for the Greg Prep. Yeah, so those are the two things I'm looking for and. Usually, that's the same time as the Rodeo and that's a big deal. That probably won't probably yeah. That's a good point. Yeah, I mean you gotta social distance from all the cattle and horses. Yeah, do that anyway. Just in my everyday life. I tried social distance from bucking broncos. That's that's the thing is social. A good way to live your life. Right or at least where a mask when you're on the. Those babies. All right thanks for listening night. A Sweet mother I love you, Dr Mike.

"Good Thursday morning. I'm Jay Sherman and welcome to your political playbook audio briefings day to day after the show for a message from the Stop the coalition and I mean a Palmer Day one is over and it's hard to encapsulate six hours of hearings in a single headline. We spent the night in the capital chatting up lawmakers AIDS reporters. And here's how insiders or thinking in yesterday and the next eight days of hearings. The six hour hearing presented unique challenges for both parties. Republicans didn't get their first crack at the witnesses is bill Taylor and George Kent. It's about one PM. After the opening statements and forty five minutes from house until chairman. Adam Schiff who also had a solid day members members of both parties. Along with Dem Council. Dan Goldman Democrats. Had we've together what. They believed to be airtight tail. They did so expertly. Interspersed burst with Republicans trying to blow gaping holes in everything they were saying. TV which is usually a boon for Republicans in the trump era seemed to cut against him. This time Kenton Taylor took pains aims to emphasize that they had no allegiance for or against Donald Trump and they were believable according to most every Democrat and Republican we spoke to one of the keys for Democrats was that both with them said linking aid to seemingly political investigations was wrong and unusual. There are few as top level lawmakers and aides both parties are looking at the Republicans performance they dove headfirst down rabbit holes regaling the crowd of millions of viewers with right wing twitter conspiracy theories but they also did a decent job of muddying. The waters confusing the testimony. In Fighting Democrat to withdraw we heard the draw language from many Republicans. Last night it's important to note. Republicans did not change the narrative arc of what Democrats are alleging. They are only saying Democrats. Were relying on witnesses who did not have the firsthand knowledge to make allegations on surprising thing. We heard a few times from people of both parties that the American public simply believes politics and government is dirty at. It's not surprised that the president held up military aid to force an investigation into a political rival to Republican highlights. People are talking about Jim Jordan using the testimony to weave together a narrative about how Taylor was relying on hearsay. Your their star witness Jordan said to tailor alert a bite deplete over and over again on cable network. TV and Devon Nunez criticized ship for his dramatic exaggerated impression of trump on the phone. Call Something Democrats cringe at. Because because it was a rare unforced error by schiff. Undoubtedly the star for Democrats was attorney. Daniel Goldman who had a mastery of material that seems completely foreign to most elected officials Sharp questioning also came from representative. Eric Swallowed California. Who got both witnesses to say they were not never trumpers and representative Joaquin Castro? who tried tried to get tailored to stipulate that attempt to extort country is a crime in and of itself even if it's not successful as NBC's Katy Tur pointed out? One of the Democratic highlights undoubtedly came from Vermont Democratic Representative Peter Walsh Jordan asking for the whistleblower to testify the guy who start at all. He said when Walsh said he welcomed the guy who started it all coming forward. That trump could testify anytime how you could tell. Republicans are still flailing a bit the the GOP keeps talking about how. No one has first-hand information although the administration is blocking almost everyone who has firsthand information the Sunlen hearing which is set for next Wednesday now carries as additional weight. The political donor was the subject of so much of the questioning on Wednesday. Fridays deposition by David Holmes will also be critical homes the counselor for Political Affairs Affairs of the US embassy in Kiev was the Taylor. Aide who overheard the trump sunlen cell phone call. He's a first hand witness to wit. The Washington Post is reporting. The former officials are saying silence called. The trump from kief was a stunning breach of security to New York. Times's Peter Baker made the point that after six hours of testimony. It's not clear any minds were changed or the hearing had penetrated the general public or the people watched riveted like Watergate. The Times is mark. Leibovich also framed the day as a collision of trump's Washington and the old Washington Post also a forward-looking story about how Republican the Senate are considering elongating.

Can you dig to the center of the Earth?
"You're listening to the brains on her sears. About being curious brains on is supported them part by a grant from the National Science Foundation. Hey mark making a little pre show sandwich I see. What will it be today? Triple pickle now not today. I'm going for something much more down to Earth literally what I'm making an Earth Sandwich Earth Sandwich. I never heard of that. It's only two ingredients. I you take a slice of bread. Okay Pretty Standard. Okay now take your bread and put it face down on the floor. G lost me. Why on Earth would you put your bread on the floor? Why on earth? Because it's an earth sandwich of course mark. Are you there habob? Yeah. I'm still at headquarters. Did you make it to the other side of the planet elevator? Took me straight here. I even double checked my compass. Where's Bob Okay? Bob went to the other side of the Earth for the sandwich if he and I stand at opposite ends of the Earth and two slices of bread on the ground at the same time. We'll sandwich the planet boom Earth Sandwich. So Bob somewhere in the ocean. Are you sure right? Bob Is your slice of bread ready. Yup hold on. I have to add some mustard. You mean it's hardly a sandwich without that okay. Ready Okay I'm ACCOUNTA- three but bread on the ground ready one two three sandwich arc Yeah since I'm out here in the ocean my side of the Sandwich. It's a little SOGGY SOGGY. This is only one of so many complex layers textures. I'm really getting a strong earthy flavor. Here trust them molly so much for me. I think I'll stick to peanut butter and Jelly time. Watch out mark. I have a feeling it's still very hot in the middle. You're listening to brains on from American public media. I'm molly bloom. And my co host today is Elijah from Atlanta. Hi Alisha a molly this episode. We're going deep or thinking about our earth's insides and the different layers of the planet beneath our feet in new. Elijah sent us a great question about this. I wanted to know what would happen if you dug a hole to the earth in jump right in his a really interesting question so Elijah. What got you thinking about digging a hole through the earth. I duNno religious here. A lot of things say it. If you do a whole earth you're gonNA end up in China and neither do not nothing. That's true well we're going to learn about that in just a little bit. So what do you think what happened? If there was a whole that went all the way through the earth and you jumped into it. I actually think gravity would be really weird. Because I've been having dreams about it if you jump through it you're gonNA keep on falling until you go to the other side and that's a whole `nother side of gravity pushing in this way so then it's GonNa put you up here. Again's just GonNa keep on going continuously. Wow that is really cool. I love how you thought about that. That's really awesome. So if you could go inside the center of the Earth what would you wanna see diamonds maybe or emeralds diamonds at Emerald to my two minerals? So we're GONNA come back. That whole through. The Earth thought experiment later on in the show before we tunnel through the planet. Let's talk about the layers of the earth. The actually from a new band about these leaders. They're called mantle and sons. Probably never heard of them distill a underground. Here's their debut track talking now We have the I'll live including us. I love it so to recap the earth has four layers in the middle is the inner core than the outer core than the mantle and finally the crust which is the part we live on before we get into your very interesting thought. Experiment Elijah. It's time to answer these listener questions. Hi My name's Lisa. I'm from Denmark but I live in Cambodia. My name is Malachi and I'm from MOORHEAD MINNESOTA my questions how scientists know the thickness of each layer the earth. And how do they know the different layers of the earth? I read that no one's ever been able to dig deeper than the Earth's crust. So my question is how do we know what is below the Earth's crust? Thanks bye? These are great questions right. No one's ever travelled to the core of the earth or even gun crust. So how do we know that? There's a mantle in an inner and outer core. That's thanks to a tool called a size monitor and some very smart scientists. One of these scientists is Ingrid Lehmann. She discovered that the earth had a solid inner core. She called herself the only Danish seismologist. That's Rachel Swaggie. She's a journalist and she wrote a book called Headstrong that profiles fifty two amazing scientists who are women and one of the women. She research for her book was Inga. I stumbled upon this academic paper And found not only that England was an amazing scientists but she discovered the inner core of the Earth. Huge huge thing that we learned about when we're kids and I had never known that she was the one who discovered it in the nineteen twenties Inglewood Working pretty much by yourself. In Denmark seismologists are people who study quakes and movement of the big plates that make up the Earth's crust disco seismic activity? So they're code seismologist. Now Denmark is kind of a funny place to study earthquakes. It's not like California or Japan where there are a lot of earthquakes but England was very excited about seismometers. Cool machines that have the ability to detect seismic waves these waves of shaking energy in the earth sort of like ripples in a pond but through the ground sizes waves to learn more. Inga's setup seismometers all over Denmark Greenland to take measurements of earthquakes. Those measurements are also called data so when an earthquake happens on one side of the world it sends waves through the earth and when scientists forgot how fast or Wigley disarmament waves are egging idea of. What the wave traveled through the get there? It's like imagine a wiggling bowl of Jello. It surfaced would move a lot so you know the Jello is kind of flexible. But if you will go a bowl of solid concrete you see a much less motion service telling you that. Concrete is much more if the earth were uniform on the inside all made up of the same material the waves would travel out in a consistent way and at a consistent speed like the waves in jello scientists noticed that the wave sometimes came from unusual angles or different speeds in Nineteen Sixteen Scientists Beno Gutenberg figured out through this data that the center of the Earth was more like a liquid. Now lucky for Inga or seismic detection network was picking up from the other side of the world in South Asia where there was a lot of seismic action and since Inga was working on her own she could take the huge amount of data coming in and go analyze it at home and she was working really really hard like a lot of scientists do but she was sitting in her back yard surrounded by flowers and whatever else she was growing in the summer and she had these kind of oatmeal boxes shove full with index cards and she'd sit out there in her backyard and go through her data and as she sat among the birds and the flowers going through her notecards. She noticed that some of the data didn't Mesh with this idea of the earth having an entirely liquid core. She was able to see that like. Hey this doesn't look quite right. The wave should be arriving at this philosophy and at this location but every once in a while they're coming in in a different place and so she was kind of a stickler for data. She realized that there were some irregularities and then because of these irregularities she was able to run the numbers and realize hey there's something else in the middle of the earth to there's an inner core as well as an outer core so the outer core is kind of liquid magma and the inner core is solid metal a solid metal core it was a huge discovery and it totally changed our idea of earth. Wade Inga We. Science Sisal Right. On scientists today are still using seismic waves to get a more complete and detailed picture of the earth defining that the Mansell which is the layer of earth just under the crossbar that we live on that mantle was probably more layered and very than we used to think with hitting a new like layers. Oh Earth you are full of surprises and now ended and mark tell you facts about the center of the earth accompanying by heavy metal music. Your score is made up of two parts a liquid outer core and a denser inner core that intercourse is literally have you. It's a solid ball of mostly which is also and that inner core spins around inside the earth but it spins totally independent of how the rest of the planet is spinning so weird and that outer pour the liquid one is so hot parts of it are about his toasty. Ads surface over which is an act and that sorely liquid outer core. That creates the Earth's totally Rad magnetic field and without that magnetic field we'd probably lose view and life as we know it would cease to exist so if you like being alive the earth that was sanded and mark telling you cool facts about the earth's core accompanied by heavy metal music now on with the show Elisha. We've got something else to check out. It's are you ready to hear it. Yes I am. Okay here it is. What is your guess? Feel like sound look something scraping on concrete. Very good guess. While we're going to give you another chance later in the show at a here it and guess again. We're working on an episode all about color and we want to hear from you. We want you to invent a superhero based on color. Captain Fuchsia Super Turquoise Purple Woman. What is your Color Superhero? And what are their superpowers? Senator way brains on dot org slash contact. You can also send US questions. Drawings and mystery sounds as where this question came from. My name is glad and I'm from Seattle and my question is do fishes have tongues. We'll get to the answer in the moment of At the end of this year and will read the most recent list of names to be added to the brains honor roll so keep listening. Welcome back to burn zone. I'm Elijah I'm molly come in. Hey Molly highlights. Hey It's our pal room. He got three but ruby. We're kind of in the middle of an episode. I know but I just had an epiphany ruby. The last time you told me you had an epiphany you told me you finally realized Cilantro isn't just bitter parsley that they're just two different herbs. Look I can't help it if I have spontaneous insights about the world but to your point. This isn't just any random realization. It's an earth PIFF UNIE. It ties in nicely with everything you've been talking about. I promise okay if you say so thanks. I'll make it quick so it all started. Yesterday I was in my sandbox and I started digging. Let me tell you I was really getting into it. I was just going in with the shovel and then my mom came out and said Hey if you dig a hole deep enough you'll end up in China and that made me think. Why do people say that? Have either of you ever heard of this before? Yeah I've heard that phrase and like allies and I were talking about earlier. He told me he's a little skeptical of this phrase. So Elijah what do you think of that phrase if you dig a hole deep enough you'll end up in China I just don't think is true. Well I did some digging of my own the research. Kind not the shovel kind and guess. What China isn't actually the opposite of the United States but isn't China on the other side of the planet. Yes that's true. China is on the other side of the world compared to the US. But it's not the antipodes of the United States in Antwerp owed. What's that an inte- poed is the spot on the other side of the planet? That's the exact opposite of you. So if you were to dig straight down through the earth you'd end up at the antipodes. Antipodes is pretty fun to say anti poed antipodes and doubled depot okay. So you're saying if you doug straight down from the US you wouldn't end up in China exactly if you literally dug through the center of the Earth from nearly any state in the continental United States. You'd actually end up in the middle of the Indian Ocean better. Wear your wetsuit. Maybe bring some flippers too. So the whole digging to China phrase isn't geographically accurate at least for US Americans. It makes sense when you stop and think about it. Actually even though China and the United States are far away from each other. They're both in the northern hemisphere. Which means we're both on the top half of the globe so naturally we can't be sure opposites are opposite would have to be on the bottom half of the globe right like if I had a globe and I took two slices of bread input one on the US. In one on China it wouldn't make an even Earth Sandwich Love meaner sandwich. Yeah that's true to make an earth sandwich. With China your other size of bread would actually need to be an Argentina because Argentina is the antidote of China so if this phrase is not geographically correct. Where did it come from? It's hard to say exactly where and when this thing started but one theory is that it originated back in the eighteen hundreds when this dude Henry Wrote a book called Walden in the book he described man who dug a hole so deep that he could hear pots and pans rattling from China. That was an exaggeration of course but the idea stock there even to towns in Illinois Canton and Peking that were named after Chinese cities because people believe they were the geographic parallels. This phrase is still repeated today in different stories cartoons. Tv shows and movies. So that's Myers piffling digging China's. Just one big old geographical misunderstanding. So if you're planning to dig to the other side of the earth from the US. Just remember to bring your swim goggles thanks. We'll be happy to be here. I think we'll go fix myself in her much now. I hear Bob has a good recipe. See since two windy sandwiches become the new it. Food Good Question Elijah. Are you ready to hear that mystery? Sound one more time. Yes I am all right here. It is okay so last time you heard it. You thought maybe something scraping on concrete. Do you have any other thoughts? No not really okay. Are you ready to hear the answer? Yes please here it is. Hello my name is Lily. And I'm from Idaho Cordray Lane and this is a book in. I'm flipping through the pages so it was flipping through the pages of a book. Have you ever done that before? Yes I read a lot of books. Actually yeah it does kinda sound like dragons only on concrete when you do it that fast. It's a cool sound with brands on Elisha. Let's get back to your question. That's started this whole episode. The one about digging a hole through the earth and jumping in it. We asked producer. Matoco wilhelm to look into this high medica. Hey Elijah what did you find out? Well no one has ever really gotten to try this out but I did find scientist who has dug pretty deep into the earth. We got as far as eight hundred meters into the crest. Yeah so not quite one kilometer Donna. Blackmon is a geologist and she's into rocks below the Earth. Surface that digging that you mentioned. She worked with a team of scientists out on a big vote in the Indian Ocean to do that. They wanted to drill deepest. They could and take samples along the way to see what rocks in the crust were made of. They basically got half a mile into the Earth's crust right into the ocean and technically they drilled that whole rather than digging but that's just across the thinnest part of the Earth's insights right and scientists have drilled holes deeper than the one that Donna mentioned. But they've never made it more than about a third of the way through the crust drilling into the earth takes a bunch of time energy in tools and most expeditions. Eventually run out of at least one of those things turns out. It's really hard to drill through rocks and it gets even harder the deeper that you go. Wow but Donna was game for our thought experiment because it's such a good question so let's imagine that it is possible to dig a hole all the way through our planet Elijah it's up to you. Where should we dig through the earth? Mariana trench the Mariana. Trench is a great choice. So I will have to travel through quite a bit of ocean because the Mariana trench the deepest trench on the earth. And it's out in the Pacific Ocean but then eventually we'll get to the Earth's crust. That's underneath the ocean and overall the crust. That's underneath the ocean is a little different than the crust. It's on land so crest. On land formed when Earth's tectonic plates crashed into each other but the crust underneath the ocean formed when magma oozed out of cracks in Earth surface and then as that magma cooled it became the crust so crust underneath. The ocean is only three to six miles deep whereas crest on land can be more like thirty to forty miles deep. So we'll start out in a really deep part of the Pacific Ocean. Oh Donna has one more suggestion before we jump in the center of the Earth has really high pressure and she says that means our whole might collapse so we should use it which is basically a vertical tunnel to hold our whole open as we go. We're going to have to think about what we want to make that casing with because otherwise we're not going to be able to see the rocks on the way down. Which if you're geologist like me. That's one of the main things you WANNA do. A I definitely want to see the rocks. So let's make that a see-through super strong vertical tunnel. How's your signal? You can still hear us. Yup strong imaginary signal coming through all right ready here. We so as you go down you're GONNA get to the different layers of sediments. The set of go by pretty quickly. Just really really thin skin on the surface. Settlements are kind of rock. So they're part of the crust. Oh and actually mentioned earlier wanting to gems deepen the earth and the crust is where emeralds form. They don't from everywhere in the world just in some parts of the earth because it takes mixture of hot water and just the right chemicals to make them sometimes emeralds also formed when magma which is liquid rock all right so we're moving along in the crest and win the cruise ends. Then we're GONNA get to a really cool interface. Which is the bottom of the crest and the top of the mantle? And so this is a place where there's going to be more all and so you know a little bit of a greenish color to the crystals. All we need is a mineral. That's green kind of like emeralds. But it's lighter to me. It looks more like gift. Grasp became a mineral. So now we're headed through the mantle and this is farther than anyone's ever Doug and you mentioned also wanting to see diamonds if you've got to travel into the earth so this is where diamonds for about one hundred miles beneath earth's surface in the upper mantle area but since this is farther than anyone's ever been you might wonder how we get any diamonds up to us and the answer. Is that the diamonds that we can mind so the diamonds that we can dig for. They got pushed closer to Earth surface by underground eruptions a long time ago. Cool is it just me or is it pretty toasty down here? It definitely is not just you. We're hitting higher temperatures and pressures by the minute. The temperature changes a lot around here but we can expect it to be somewhere between two thousand and seven thousand degrees Fahrenheit. So Pretty dozy hang tight. We're headed to another important spot about eighteen hundred miles below earth surface. And that's where we're GONNA hit. A more. Metallic core material and outer core in fact is going to be molten. So as we look through our clear really strong really temperature prove Casey. We're going to be able to if we take our time and look we're going to be able to see that outer core metallic material actually flowing around us liquid metal then the pressure is just going to get too high and that and that material becomes solid it just can no longer maintain its liquid form and so that's the last layer that we're going to go through to get to the center. Well we made it all the way to the center and now we're going to sit in the center and you know see what it feels like all of a sudden there's no gravity flow a. Yeah so the nomer. Gravity thing that's because gravity is basically went of big heavy thing pulls on you so if you're standing on earth surface but you jump off the ground gravity is what pulls you back down. And that's because Earth's mass which is really really big it kind of wins a tug of war against your mass which is much smaller so even though you resisted gravity to jump up you land back on the afterward instead of floating into space. Oh okay but here in the middle nearest. We're surrounded on all sides by the Earth. So there's half years on our left half years on our right half years above us half the earth below us and the earth on Wednesday pulls on us but so does the earth on the other side and those pulls actually cancel out so that leaves us weightless wow scoring be here. But isn't it time for us to head to the other side okay? That's all admit this plan has a bit of a hitch. I've been imagining like normal. Laws of physics so far and gravity fullest down here but like we said there's no gravity at this center of the Earth. There's no way you're going to be pulled out of the center on your own. You need some help. Oh tricky but we can still imagine a way out of here right. Oh of course. That's a great idea and overall continuing through our whole would just be a backwards version of the journey. We already took so we go back through the solid core then the molten bits and then the mantle and last the crust welcome back to Earth surface. Great to be here. Thanks for taking us on this journey. Monica no problem. Now I'm GONNA go eat an earth sandwich with pickles. I I remember trying to dig a hole when I was maybe ten years old just to see how far I could get an and where I would pop up only got a bite. I think four fate before I hit layer of something very solid and I think that was my first introduction to the layers of the earth that's author and illustrator Oliver Jeffers. He's written a lot of incredible books and one of my favorites is here. We are which was actually just turned into a movie and even though Oliver didn't get too far with his whole he never stopped wondering about the world around us. I am in Belfast. Right now where I grew up I normally live in Brooklyn and I was halfway through year of traveling around the world with my wife and two young children whenever this pandemic struck and so we came back here to be with family but it was really quite striking having traveled to run so much in the last six months just of the different types of landscape that they're wearing and anytime we we'd been somewhere there has been a crack in the author being cliffs or even on a highway driving through where they've clearly blasted rock and you can see the sides just these patterns of the layers just high striking high thin they can be and just how much history has gathered up into those different levels of dust that are just falling on top of each other over the years. The fastness of the Earth both. What's beneath the surface and on? It has always amazed and inspired him a book that I just finished reading was called the body a guide for inhabitants by Bill. Bryson an in. It was a fact. That really struck me as shocking. Our Planet is quite large but there is only a certain amount of places on the planet that can harbor human life. Obviously we can't live at sea. We can't live on the sea so I think seventy percent of the surface of the Earth as water and so it's only the bits of this earth that we can live and it's only in some of the dry bits whenever you exclude all of the bits that are too wet or too high or too arid. According to this Bill Bryson says that there's only four percent of the surface of our planet that is habitable to human life which is shocking shocking thing to consider and human life only exists on our earth in the solar system. So that's GONNA work we're crammed into very small a space. It still feels beg really. This is a small word any astronaut. Who's ever been outer space and looks back at our earth. There is a phenomenon called the overview effect. It is the realization that earth is not divided into countries or even cultures that it is one single super system. Everything is connected everything else whether affects everyone as we're finding I`ts things like viruses affect everyone. It doesn't matter all part of one single system and you cannot see borders from from outer space. I need a project last year. That was an accurately scaled model of the earth and the moon but in this did draw every single border known to man at at that point in on my sculpture but instead of writing the country names I just wrote over and over and over again people live here. People live here. People live here because it's true. This is the only place in the entire universe that people can live. You can find Oliver Jeffers book here. We are at libraries and bookstores and the movie version is now streaming on Apple. Tv plus there are different layers inside the earth. The crust is partly walk on the dentist layer. The next layer is the mantel. It's the biggest layer in center of the earth. There's the inner core in our core. Those are the hottest we've never managed to dig patched verse crust seismic waves from earthquakes doe scientists. What inside of the earth is like but if we did dig a hole all the way through the planet we'd see a lot of full rocks at Super High Temperatures and we end up in a place called the interposed.

Do not have the kind of tongue that we're used to like having the ability to move our tongue around with our musculature. They don't have that. My name is tyranny. Teas and I'm a National Geographic Explorer Marine biologist and independent filmmaker but they do have raised bold in the bottom of their mouth and some of them do some pretty interesting things with one of my favorites fish tongues. Is the OCTA cloth mortgage the name of the group actually translates into Bony Tongues? And they are able to grab their prey hold in their their normal jaws and then eventually shred the pray in their mouth because they have these teeth on their tongue and on the roof of their mouth and they kind of chew with your mouth. Open that raft to invite over for dinner. One of my favorite examples of a fish that uses time like structure would have to be Archer fish contracting the muscles in their kill reach. They can squeeze out the dream of water that can knock prey out of the air. That's pretty cool. Trick me There's nothing fishy about this list. It's time for the brains honor roll.

The Camp Minden Conspiracy
"It was a writing camp at a house in the Hamptons for beyond say, she's walking around with her baby walking from room to room, just listening to what we were working on. I remember Hurrell showed up at the front door. He had like a CD full beats everybody was slinging beats at her. When I remember, I kept getting to the end of the course to look a hill goes here like because it needs another section like the the anthem stadium like everybody screams it. Record it into my phone when I was running like, I'm sitting here panting into the phone. And that was that was it. And she was like, Kratz you, have you have Beyonce's for single like. Like what, what an interesting day that was, I'm Dave Stewart songwriter producer co founder of Eurythmics and co creator, and executive producer of land the show all about the intimate mysterious autumn sowing. Join us for sung lands podcast on iheartradio app. Alert podcast from UFO's to psychic powers and government conspiracies history is riddled with unexplained events. You can turn back now or learn the stuff they don't want you to know a production of iheartradio's, how stuff works. Welcome back to the show. My name is Matt the call me. Then we are joined as always with our super producer, Paul mission control deck, and most importantly, you or you and you are here that makes this stuff, they don't want you to know a quick check in Matt. How's it going? How you doing a dune? Well, you like the fawns over. Yeah. Things. Yes. Things are going. Well, I had this weird hair last night where I notice on the back fence and my property. There's just a ton of junk growing up around the fence through the fence and on its old chain link fence, and it's mostly, like vines of some sort and I just couldn't help it. I just started destroying all the vines and just laughing them out. Chateau. No. Did you serve the earth with salt? I did. Nice nice. I've always wondered sure literal to literally do that. Is that where the expression salt of the earth comes from? Or is that different? I'm not familiar with the demolishing there. Yeah. In this case, it's killing all the stuff that trying to grow out getting more of a scorched earth approach. Yeah. What about you know, checking in? How's it going doing? Well, thanks Ben. I got to piggyback of business trip with the family vacation. I brought my kid with me to New York City. She hung out with her godmother will, I worked, and we had adventures. And it was a lot of fun. Also. And check in that we liked institute applies to you, as well listening. So if you have an event in your life that you would like to, to tell us in your fellow listeners about feel free, you don't have to wait till the episode is over. You can just pause it and give us a call now. We are one eight three three s t d w g k and today we are off to camp. No, not a summer camp. Not a religious camp. None of those sorts of cancer, we're going to a camp that is much more dangerous. We're exploring a genuine literally explosive conspiracy as well as a conspiracy theory. How can both of those exists concurrently? Well, we will tell you inter- camp Mendon. Here are the facts. So there's a place called Webster parish, and solve of US highway eighty near Doyle line, Louisiana between Mendon Louisiana and Bossier or Boissier city, probably Bossier city, Louisiana this thing camp. Mendon is part of a larger compound called the Louisiana army ammunition plant or lap. LA AP. Yeah. In the history of this place goes all the way back the beginning of nineteen thirty nine and the government that is when the government used eminent domain, which you're mentioning off air band. We have yet to do an episode on. I think we might need to correct that they use this concept of eminent domain. To acquire the land before the United States entered World War to get this, this compound is just under fifteen thousand acres originally. It had a couple of different names. It was the Louisiana ordinance plant, or it was called the shell plant alluding to of course, artillery shells. And for the entirety of its time since since it was fully acquired beginning thirty nine going to forty one it has been owned by Sam. But there's an important distinction. It has been operated by private contractors. So back to back to this, this history, right? L A, AP was completed in just eleven months under the direction of a contractor Silas Mason at the time. This was middle of nowhere country. It was. Well, we're family show. It was just east of bumble f-, if you know what I mean. I end there were very few people here. So from a congressional or state pork budget kind of perspective. It makes sense to have this kind of operation there, especially if you're dealing with ordinance or something that might be dangerous. You don't want that in downtown New Orleans, right? Yeah. And it also makes sense of the time that they're that they needed a lot of amunition was right around world. War two. Right. So in may nineteen forty two there were a total of eight production lines that were opened. And then by December nineteen forty four the number of employee's hit its peak at just under eleven thousand ten thousand seven hundred and fifty four. And that was in the month of the battle of the bulge, and is a major operation. Yeah. Well, I mean, think about all the munition that was deployed during that conflict during World War Two we needed a lot of this. They were not. They were certainly not creating all of them emission shy. A good portion of it. And then the plant was deactivated after after the summer of nineteen forty five right with VJ day. But here's a spooky fact this is one of my favorite things from the research this place camp. Mendon in L, A P are used interchangeably. Let's just call it camp. Mend camp. Mendon is built on not one, but nine cemeteries are any of those native American burial grounds? No, no. There may be some people from native American populations buried there. But they were they were rural cemeteries that date through different time periods. And they are now you know, the they got a little bit better treatment than the, the stories. We hear about and things like poltergeist, right? They weren't they weren't just paved over. They are under the care of the US government, so you can see. The existing grave markers. They took out there were these wooden grave markers, right? Which you're not going to hold up very well. And the humid environment of Louisiana. And they were replaced with small concrete slabs. But the thing is the slabs don't have the names of the deceased listed on the markers. They're just slaps. Oh. Which is pretty sad. Right. The cemeteries are Allentown crew. Jim Davis, king Nottingham rain Richardson, Vanoise del Walker and the people who are buried, there, have their dates of birth and death, and maybe a little bit of other information. But the problem is even if you are a descendant and, you know, way your ancestors, buried there you can't visit the grounds to look for the grave. You can't you can't find them by the name. You know what I mean? All right. So, so it is it is the site of nine cemeteries that the public is largely prohibited. From visiting that doesn't have a ton of stuff to do extensively with today's episode but it's weird. It is very weird that somehow through eminent domain, government, just purchased without really realizing it nine cemeteries, they'll the dead, stole your dead, if you if you hard to send it from someone buried in those cemeteries, and their manufacturing munition that steals life. That's wild. Yeah. Maybe, maybe we have an episode in the future on the strangest cemeteries, we've never done that Stewart. Let's do it. I'm keeping count imminent domain. Strangest cemeteries? But anyway, that, that's a little bit of a side note, a we do know that to your point Matt. We see we see production wax, and wane with this with global conflict. Right. The thing is not always open and pumping out bullets twenty four seven it was restored after World War Two during the Korean conflict. Flicked and this was under Remington rand the I'm assuming the company that actually was there producing. Yes. The stuff at the facility, and that was in nineteen fifty one then employment at that time went from roughly zero to five thousand in one thousand nine hundred fifty three or I guess, from zero before nine hundred fifty one then up to five thousand nine hundred fifty three now at campaigned, and there was a metal forging and machining plant area, and it was known as the Y line. Chrome acc- acid, etching facility, the Y line Chroma, key, acid, etching facility. Oh, you'll Kaethe. And it's fun to say even just in, in full, but it manufactured. These specific one fifty five millimeter projectiles. Would that be what kind of weapon, what does that dislike a specific caliber of bullet are, is this, like almost like a larger, but seems lawyer certainly projectiles in my friend, and there are one hundred fifty five millimeters, okay. A quick Google search indicated that these would've fed an em seven seven seven howitzer, which is one of those cannon looking things that are on wheels. Yeah. Yeah. There also I think there. Kind of an all purpose standard at least in NATO. I don't I don't know about on the other side of the curtain at this time as they called it, but yeah, these are these are not for handguns. Or not for handguns that you could actually use is, how are the ones that you have to click click click and get him to go up at an angle, and they shoot the kind of lobbies ordinance and has a nice ark trajectory and then comes down almost like a mortar round. I don't think it's quite a more around, but definitely not something you would fire point blankets, something, you would shoot it and have it arc sounds terrified does, so the plant is again, reactivated during the Vietnam conflict, the Vietnam, war, those timber nineteen sixty one and this time by a different rand, Sperry, rand, and this contractor held it until nineteen seventy five as that conflict was continuing, it produce all kinds of things. Minds flus is shaped charges bombs boosters, demolition blocks. Projectiles. Really all the hits all the things that make humans no longer humans. And during this time there were a couple of things that went wrong facility, a couple of tragic accidental explosions in. Nineteen sixty two and then again in nineteen sixty eight but the show must go on, whether we're talking war Broadway musical. Right. So over the next few decades employment waxed, and waned in this facility, as we said, depending upon the initial needs of the military this, by the way played economic havoc with the local community because this was one of the primary sources of employment for the surrounding area. There are a lot of towns in Mississippi in Louisiana, and even in Alabama, as well where the primary employer is a contractor or a federal agency of some sort used to in a -nother life being close contact with people who would role play for military training in Louisiana, and their job was to act, either, as you know, terrified civilians or belligerent civilians, in case of urban warfare. Reenactments. And it was terrible. They were paid like six bucks an hour on. That's a really important skill does after the war ends. You've got a pretty lucrative career as a reenactor on your hands there. There you go. The Lake City. Quiet pills episode that we did. Yes. Yes. Which I, I was thinking of earlier. That, that's a real thing in that we did. Okay. Those pretty well done. Yeah. Thanks for everyone who wrote in to check on that, because that, while that particular team we don't want to spoil this for you. But while that particular team associated with Lake City quiet pills is largely out of the running now from what we understand. There are multiple other. Let's call them independent operatives independent post military operatives out, there was surprisingly affordable rates. This is not a recommendation to hire them just want you to know that it's a real thing. So anyway, the whole role playing thing that I mentioned is just the show how reliant many rural communities can become on these things. So imagine that the only solid job you can get in your town is making making amunition for the army, and then. The war stops and your job stops. What are you gonna do? You know. So let's fast forward to the president this pattern exist. Right. This waxing. This waning this up and down the frequency and explosions aren't going to stop the show on August. Twenty fourth two thousand six there's another explosion. And this is during a time where the areas run by enough. It creatively named ex-plo Systems inC name had a site that was leased a camp mended. And bombs, there were disassembled and recycled, in theory, this explosion in two thousand six led to the evacuation of six hundred school children nearby. Luckily, there were no injuries or fatalities that time around. However, this was still not the last explosion. Maybe we can eight mission control. Can we throw to a clip here? Moore's us all the sky light up and west just loud. And I wasn't no noise just lit up. And I caught my look to the west and then it the light died down with boys. Hey, what was that? He looked up now the in it lit up again. And then actually we heard the Lyle boom it like a sunset. It was so bright. So what's that guy describing in that clip? Well, he is describing a massive explosion that he saw take place at the plant. In this is the one in two thousand twelve or is that this is this is the one that was it was huge as fifteen million pounds of this stuff called m six propellant in this is again, the ex-plo systems, Inc. The, the company that's operating it. It was. A huge I mean you the way he's talking about it sounds like a nuclear explosion. When you see the old footage of those or maybe one of the ones at a chemical plant in China that I think many of us have probably seen videos of it sounds massive it. And it was it just just rocked camp. Mendon. It shattered windows up to four miles away. And it created a seven thousand foot mushroom, cloud that ended up like the stuff that's in that cloud ended up contaminating much of the surrounding area. We were talking a little about this off air, and I'm no spoilers for anyone. But this is something that really happened reminds me of the turnover incident when which fantastic series on HBO right now, when that explosion took place, people could see it from miles away in the city, and it didn't create a mushroom cloud, but it created this crazy light shining up in the sky, and people were just remarking upon about how beautiful it was very upsetting the way it's portrayed in the show. So the vast majority of people in two thousand twelve and today, and if we're. Being honest anytime after World War Two are going to a quite a mushroom cloud with what a nuclear detonation. So the question immediately becomes what the hell happened in camp Mendon? We'll explore the answers after a word from our sponsor. I can't believe it. That Gerald is presenting the quarterly budget report with finger puppets. Look, here comes one point seven percent decrease in fixed overhead Henault, everybody. No, I can't believe how easy it was to save hundreds of dollars on car insurance. Geico. Are you dope projected increase in organic Khukri revenue? Believe it. Geico could save you fifteen percent or more on car insurance. Here's where it gets crazy. So remember those contractors, we mentioned earlier, that's probably one of the most important points of the first part of our show is that while this is a, a an Uncle Sam production, while Sam is, you know, the studio or whatever the people doing the work are these private contractors. You know, a panoply of rans and number of any other contractors explosives Dems was one of the most prominent. So those of us are hearing this name are starting to put the pieces together, right, ex-plo systems, not the not the most brilliant. The most brilliant creative naming, but like X blow short for explosion. Right. Or maybe exploration. Maybe I'm profiling, but what is slash was explosives. They were a private company, whose primary business operations involved, the demilitarization. Shen of military munitions. And then, of course, selling those things again like the recovered explosive materials, the you'll find an oppor will you'll find. Okay. Let's put it this way, you find munitions that were used in war meant for war, and then you're gonna resell or repurpose those for mining. Okay. All right. So maybe mining, maybe also construction, such as the creation of roadways that cut through mountains, a blast Brocker through or tunnel three rock. Exactly reminding like that you can even magin using it for demolition of something that you need for a house, or for a big facility, something like that. Okay. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. Have you have you guys seen actual demolition in real life? You have had a big one here in town recently the was an alarm building that they took down. And that's the kind of do it from the bottom down. I guess, yeah, I went to a winter see that. And one of our friends of the show producer here named Ramsey was filming it, it was weird. We've met the governor who is dressed like a leather, cowboy at the time it was very, very strange. Also very early in the morning because they don't want to mess up traffic. So he was wearing his demolition outfit, perhaps, though, is it, perhaps it was it. But, but I asked that, I mentioned that just because, you know, these are legitimate uses for this, this kind of substance. Right. You know, there's nothing against the law about demolished and building. They're actually quite a few laws about how to do it correctly and just a little background on, on the substance in question, this m six propellant, it's a military grade explosive. Propellant that's used for triggering firing off heavy artillery, like those howitzers, we were talking about, and it actually comes in bags and these grains, that are different shapes and sizes, and they're very large. They could be up to an inch long and the bags almost picture it as like an explosive beanbag. That's packed in to the bottom of the gun, depending on how far the projectile needs to go. So there's different. They're graded differently for distance. Right. Right. Right. And there are different formulations of propellants. Right in six is only one of these, but the thing about is that this is one of the most common, you know, because it's, it's easier when you manufactured scale, it's easier to manufacture the same thing repeatedly. Right. Rather than a mixed fruit Cup. I should probably lunch. So, so, yes, the US army wanted ex-plo to take all of this unused propellant and to store it, and then resell it, and they're already kind of sitting pretty right, we're paying you. We're paying you millions of dollars for this stuff that we're giving you, you just have to pay to store it. But then you resell. It explosives. Okay. Here's what we're gonna do you to sell it to, to. You know, like that Chicago, poem by Carl Sandburg we're gonna we're going to sell it to the construction workers. We're going to sell it to the, the butchers the hog staggers or whatever of the world and he's a blow something up anyone who needs the blow something up in a lawful way gets get some of this im- six everything must go. So the contract had all the basic requirements, right? Ex-plo needed to document the sale of everything. They needed to certify its compliance with federal law and submit officials certificates to the army's by the book, the way would have to handle any transaction with any hazardous material. Right. Spoiler alert. They did not do that. Not once, not never. So what did they do? Okay. So let's just recap the US army, actually spent eight points. They awarded ex-plo and whenever whenever I hear ex-plo was the what's the second part ex-plo systems. I think that's in Asia's diesel explosive. Nice every time so I'm going to call it explosive from now. Yeah. They gave the awarded exploit eight point six million dollars in contract funds to demilitarize one point three five million propelling charges that contain this m six propel K just to recap. So they didn't do that. What did they do? Okay. It turns out, they entered into a very, very real life conspiracy, which we love here on stuff. They don't want you to know the management of exploit didn't even make an attempt at reselling any of these explosives. Instead, they stockpiled them super weirdly, stockpiling would sees a very generous her. Yeah. Stockpiling makes it sound orderly or labelled. Let's call it hoarded that yes. That's yeah. Airy unsafely, right. Because the bags we've mentioned that contain the six or opened their open to the air, they're laying around and corners. And they're intentionally hidden you know. Like ineptitude of hoarders, where someone says, all right? This pile of papers. This pile of entertainment weekly's from the early nineteen nineties is fine. But I don't want them to know how many dead cats I have. So I'm going to put those in a corner behind the us diapers, which are purpose perfectly respectable things to Ord. So they so they treat these things like dead cats write they hide them in these various corners. They hide them away from the places where they would legally be required to put them. Because officially now these stockpiles do not exist from January twenty ten to November twenty twelve ex-plo ran a con game on the United States of America. They submitted false or tickets to the US army, they were supposed to submit real certificates they, they under cover of nights if we want to be dramatic they transported hazardous waste to facilities where it was legal to store them. And then they stored them, you know, like just tossing bags around into the corner. And some if anything, it's a surprise the stuff didn't explode earlier. And the reason they did it this way is because they were able to continue milking the government for money by, by saying, okay, we've sold this to these people. But, you know, just keep paying these invisible things that we have set up, they even said that they even made up sales just completely said, okay, we sold this to this other company that may or may not exist. Wait a minute. You telling me that a company that has like a name that sounds like it's straight out of like Ideo, Crecy was not only up and up, and then a company called ex-plo core or whatever systems systems was going to make stuff that would go boom, is that what you're telling me? Hang on. Just hang on to. They were not gonna let that stuff go and makes you wonder who they were really going to sell it. Tablet were. They were actually going to do with it, possibly some sort of strange foreign deal with military, militant groups. Right. I'm just conjecturing here. We're going to look into some of that, and it definitely feels like they, they wanted to make more money on it, or they at least should have because that's just more money on top. If you're, you're already got a contract to sell it, and now you're selling it, but that's official with this false certificates are doing right. They're getting paid for nothing what they supposed to decommission it, though, in my misunderstanding ear, like, weren't they supposed to render it inert or get rid of it, like I don't understand. Why were they holding onto capitalism baby? Okay. The Turkey goes through for the gravy. Yeah. D- millage horizon would mean that they remove the propellant from any associated paraphernalia equipment that would make it a weapon of war, right project. Looks like it's like yeah. Maybe it's illegal to sell cars, but it's legal to sell gasoline. Right. That's what makes it. Cargo. So their job is to take the gasoline out of the car and just sell the guess what they did instead was they took the gas out. And then, you know, again, they put it in open bags and threw it in the core top. They said they sold it. It's I mean, it's an laughing because it's ridiculous. It's catch twenty two level idiot, Chrissy level, to, to your point, no kind of stuff. So the expo officials, including vice president of operations guide him William Terry. Right. In addition to making up these sales, they also did not tell the people in these third parties that they that they were allegedly buying this stuff. So these other companies have no idea what the hell's going on. They also had their signatures, forged or fabricated. And then the people at the top of the chain, the executives order, lower level, employees to not only move this stuff, once, but to move it multiple times whenever government officials come around to check in on things. Imagine you get the call and say, okay, we need to move again, like to your appointments. Billions of pounds of explosive propellants. Yeah. And highly dangerous in just continually moving around in this big facility. It just seems like a recipe for disaster. Totally and the and the, the forgery doesn't stop there. This con- game like a lot of con- games is not sustainable over the long term. So it quickly kind of spirals downward, and they have to create more and more. False documents, try to cover up their original alive or their mistake, or their oversight or whatever you wanna call it, depending on how charitable you feel about the human condition as you hear this today. So one other example, would be that they started making fake paperwork for landfills in Louisiana and Arkansas to say that the stuff they did. They did actually ship to landfills was not hazardous. It was a spoiler alert. So all of this added up to you said millions of pounds. That's literally. Seven thousand eight hundred something tons of 'em, six propellant that has just hidden it camp. Mendon and. Eventually they get discovered because of that enormous explosion. And we played that clip to take to take us all back in that in that time and space. You know, imagine where you live with whatever when you hear the word home, whatever you think of when you hear the word home. Imagine one one afternoon. You know, one night, whatever you hear this, you don't even hear a sound the ground beneath, you shakes the windows. Shatter, you hear a ten thousand car alarms? Go off at once. Right, dogs and cats are going crazy. The and then the sky lights up and you see things flying through the sky, which is detailed it becomes very important later. Of course, you think that it's an act of violence. Right. It doesn't feel like an accident. It's a violent act that feels like an act of violence. Hey, I was very well done man. A violent act that feels like inactive violence. Yes. Just so sue. The, the news goes crazy. Right. They're, they're trying to figure out what happened. They're, they're asking all these questions. We'll, we'll bracket that for a second. So let's just go to what the authorities initially set. Captain, Doug Kane who was a spokesman for the state police said that the surprise surprise the, the cause of this massive explosion was all this m-6 propellant used as, as you had noted will in howitzers and other artillery. The pellets are mainly this compressed substance called nitro cellulose. It's also sometimes called gun cotton. Authorities initially said there was a total four hundred fifty tonnes after an investigator looking into that October fifteenth explosion saw cardboard boxes in rows and rows of pallets just chilling behind a building. But then they found more stacked in sheds, and warehouses, and they started trying to move. They started tried to move it, and it wasn't the problem. They had was that Fru minute this hoarding or hiding away of the stuff actually worked legally, they were supposed to put this. In a thing called a storage magazine, and they instead hidden it away because they wanted it to look like they were selling. This stuff stuff is also known as flash paper, you might have heard it referred to as such. So they had they tried to move it back and forth, the thirties, we're trying to move the stuff that hadn't exploded and that is the official narrative, so far. That's the that's what you will hear on the news. That's what you will hear when you read about the, the later court cases and stuff that come about because of this, however, there is more to the story. Some people you see allege the cover up exist. What are we talking about? We'll tell you afterward from our sponsor. This episode is brought to you by the new podcast ephemeral during our stint on this planet of ours. Humans have made a ton of stuff some of it, we treasure some of it. We junk and some of it, we just forget about. So how do you place value on the things that we create what deserves just one more look before vanishes into the past? Well, these are questions that underpin the new podcast, FM rural host Alex Williams, who was a producer on stuff. They don't want you to know for awhile, guys you through a wasteland of things that were just barely saved. And in some cases not saved at all right? How to describe ephemeral? Let's see. It's part history podcast part, sound, collage, eight features interviews with historians, collectors authors, and much much, much more nature. Alex, even interviews his dad in the trailer which in and of itself is like a little mini episode, and it's quite lovely episode piece. Together stories lost to time a missing chapter of American music. History or a decade's worth of original television broadcast, only once. So listen to a federal right now on apple podcasts on the iheartradio app or wherever you listen to podcasts and learn more at a federal duck show. And we're back. So as we said, what we've explored thus far is the official story. That's the thing that comes across the news waves to the, the, the PR, documentation. Let's you know that's what's going on. And that's what goes down in the history books. But guess what, there are other explanations out there, some little more than others? But almost all of them reek of some kind of cover up. There was a foot here, right? Like we said before given that massive mushroom cloud. It's completely understandable. That some people have fear in nuclear detonation, right. For some kind of tack at least, you know. Something went wrong other than an accident, right? And the, the idea of nuclear power terrorism is at the forefront of a lot of people's minds due to active negotiations with the DPRK in the attempt to verify disarm nukes, the concerns of quote unquote, road nukes or suitcase nukes dirty bombs dirty bombs, the dirty bombs, not to be confused with our local dirty birds. Also, sometimes bomb. Sports jokes. So it's interesting because the Shreveport times shortly after this reported a number of what you could call conspiracy theories, or alternative theories, or very least contra eyewitness reports the contradict, the official narrative of, but that article in subsequent related articles appeared to have been scrubbed from the internet. Could not find them even using one of our favorite tools the way back machine. Oh man. I love that thing one article that did survive is pretty fascinating if not. Well, let's present it I for everyone's consideration without commentary. And then maybe we can go back in and pick it apart, a little this comes to us from Joe Quinn, who has writing at op Ed news dot com. So in op Ed news dot com. Joe Quinn reports that folks across Texas, Louisiana Mississippi, saw bright fly. Ashes in the sky. And he described them having seen fireball trails as well. And then in Shreveport, and Shreveport area of northwest Louisiana. A lot of folks heard earthshaking booms that caused houses to rattle in their foundations and windows were broken all throughout Mendon. And so here's a quote from Amy mealy, who was one of the residents who live just a couple of miles from camp Mendon. She genuinely thought that she was being bombed this. That's what she said, I honestly thought we were being bombed and she said it was one of the scariest things that she's ever been through. And, you know, she was like she describes, how she's checking some emails, right? She's about to go to bed. You look your phone or whatever you can do your check your Email make sure. Everything's okay. And she said she had an odd feeling in the pit of her stomach. She said it was quote, like a rolling thunder in the distance and then she said it was getting closer and closer and she said, she felt everything moving with me. I could literally feel it moving toward me. That's a, that's a pretty crazy. Right. And, and that's right before the actual explosion hit, see the chronology becomes interesting here, yet, because dozens of people still from op-ed news. Dozens of people when rights called the Webster parish sheriff's office, as well as the local news station, KSL, a news, twelve and they reported seeing flashes of light in the sky and hearing multiple loud booms that shook houses, the sheriff's office initially stated that there was a quote possibility that a mediator hit the. The ground in the area, the following morning, however they recanted and the parish sheriff at the time, Gary Sexton said that has meant experts told him what people had seen in heard was an underground bunker containing explosives that blew up that late night on October fifteenth, not only was there nothing to see here, but the explosion foot worked exactly as it was designed to do and the use of the phrase designed was somewhat unfortunate for the sheriff's department, at the time, because it left the door open for conjecture Quinn and other people who doubt the official narrative still have questions Quinn puts it this way beautifully. He says, what are the odds that at around the same time as people across three states Mississippi, Texas, Louisiana and hundreds of miles apart? We're seeing what was clearly a meteorite comet fragment burning up the lower earth's atmosphere. A munitions dump would explode at the same time mo- more to the point if a munitions dump did explode, what are the odds that a meteorite or comet fragment that many, I witnesses believe hit the ground in the area would be in no way connected to the explosion? So. Enticing. Tantalizing. Tempting. Right. But we also have to we also have to think about how close the time line can become here. It could seem like a meteor rate depends, some where someone standing and what they're seeing at the time, we talked about this before, with move on and different UFO observations. Right light. Yeah. Light in the atmosphere could be tricky. Yeah. The whole thing is one big Shamlan. And the, the problem is that someone could be far enough away that they see a light but they don't hear a sound or necessarily feel a tremor. Right. Yes. So they could see debris from an explosion launched so high that they feel they're watching a meteor crash, so we could just be the explosion, but. But that hasn't prevented people from say, no, there is a cover up a meteor hit, and then they. That's the thing for me. They blew up a military base. The media did of. I know what you're saying. It's kind of like the Titanic conspiracy when they're the best way to kill the people who don't like the Federal Reserve is to get them on this massive boat under false pretenses. Exactly. Yeah. So it seems if we're exercising autumn's razor here, the idea between the two conspiracies the idea that there's a cover up of a cover up. Right. It seems that maybe the mundane answers, the more accurate one but doesn't make it any less disgusting. In terms of corruption. Luckily, there are two pieces of good news here. I thankfully, no one that we know of was actually injured in this in this, the Bockel and second in a in a rare example of corporate Justice, the higher ups and exploit did end up going to court. So it wasn't just, you know, the way it happens with banks. It wasn't just that the Bank was fined some portion of their profits and was able to write it off as a cost of doing business. The individuals involved actually had legal consequences. If the co owner men named David Alan Smith, who was sixty three years old at the time he was sentenced to fifty five months in prison because of all this each. Yeah. And, and also three years of supervised. I guess what? What does that super supervisor essentially? And. After he was released and he was also find thirty four million dollars. Let's yeah. All the time. Well, this guy, a super rich man. Well, it was almost thirty five million again, he's, he's the co owner of this company. Right. And he was taking part in that conspiracy. We were talking about right of bilking, the government, there's a lot of rings of tra- noble in this story. You know, not to spoiling thing, but it's like it's corruption its cover up its failure to do the right thing to protect the people that live in the vicinity of your facility with very dangerous. Things products at the center product to the center. Yeah. Well, and here's the thing, David Smith. He's not the only guy that went to prison, right? There was William Terry. Right. We mentioned him earlier, he was sentenced to sixty months in prison three years of supervised release and he because he wasn't owner. I guess he was the VP of operations right? Right. He had to pay just under a hundred and fifty thousand in restitution for participate in the criminal conspiracy. And there were three other big names, that also had to take dive. Yeah, there's a director of. Port technology mammoth, Charles Farris Callahan, who was sixty nine from Shreveport. He got twenty four months in the in the clink one year of supervised probation and had to pay two hundred seven thousand five hundred ninety nine bucks in restitution for falsely representing the facts in various documents. Then, of course, you get over to Kenneth Wayne, lampkin, he was the this is his title, m six Demel like as in demolition program manager all about the little snappy. You know, shortening 's. Well, yeah. And he got himself forty five months in prison and three years of that old fun, things revised release or probation. And he was fined, you know, again similarly to William Terry. Right. One hundred and forty nine thousand dollars in restitution and his was for specifically making false statements and last, but not least there was traffic and inventory. Control manager lion. Wayne coons with a K. Who had to go with forty one months in prison. Three years of supervised release, and he got off relatively easily in terms of restitution Iliad to pay ninety two thousand nine hundred twenty one dollars only I mean I don't have that sitting around about you guys. But well it's kind of it's kinda like anchoring on menus, you know, the, the psychological thing where you show people larger price first, and then you get them to forget how high the lowest price thing is. Sure. We could we should go into psychology menus when they've at smart. So these people did actually go. They did go to court. They did get found guilty. It was a real conspiracy. The question for people who are out there, a little more in the fringe of the reporting is whether or not, there was a that was whether or not this conspiracy is a cover up for something else at play. We did not find a ton of evidence for that it seem more like the fog of war. The panic of trying to report things as they're happening. But hey, if you are from the area, and, you know, something else that was amiss at the time we would love to hear from you. And also, if you're not from the area, can you recall any other strange cases like this, in your neck of the global woods, what popped up in the news, only to disappear few days later, like one day, true story longtime listeners remember this one day here in our fair, semi metropolis of Atlanta. A piece of the highway, just collapsed, interstate eighty five and for, for several months afterwards, the story that the local government was pushing was that a homeless person who struggled with substance abuse problems, had set a fire in a shopping cart, and that, that resulted in the bridge collapsed. Yeah. Because stone totally melts, you know with garbage can fires right? Well. Well, I mean, you know, there's Billy's mother propellant down there. They were used burdock piling. Under the bridge. Yeah. He's smart. He'll read recently started an LLC. He was all explo- party Inc. Well, they had to figure out some way to use all those demilitarized ordinance you use it for a nice fireworks display on the downtown Atlanta skyline. It is alias, of course, was bridge. Blowing ten. Yes. Yep. So I, I mean I it's weird because that I five collapse is, is a pretty good example of how quickly these things can pop in and out of the news. So we would be curious to hear your stories or your versions of this, because the, the truth of the matter is now that our biological attention, spans have been surpassed by our technological ability to disseminate stories. So it is difficult. There's an old saying that, you know, you can't keep your eye. You can't watch every falling Sparrow or whatever for humans that's always been difficult. And now it is impossible. So it's quite it's, it's I didn't even possible. It is plausible that some crazy thing happened in like Scranton, Pennsylvania, and only the people in part of Scranton, Pennsylvania, know what went down. We want to hear those stories, and we want to share them with your fellow listeners. Yes, please. Find us all over the place Facebook, Twitter Instagram, you can do all those things caller number one eight three three as TD, w why t k gives us the scoops because we want to we want to spread those two scoops.

That's my county the brand what size scoop, though that's the question you know, they're fairly vague about it. Looks you know, they don't give you the volume out of excuse. Joe this, and they kind of they kind of imply that all other cereals are short scooping. I agree. I agree. And it says actual size underneath the scoop, exactly doesn't actually.
