New measurements show moon has hazardous radiation levels

"Future explorers to the moon may face ultra hazardous radiation levels. That's the conclusion of a new study published today by a group of Chinese and German scientists. Researchers say astronauts on the moon will be bombarded with what they say is two, possibly three times more radiation than the astronauts aboard the international space station. As a result, they say Cruz will require thick walled shelters for protection. The findings are based on radiation measurements taken by China's lunar lander, which has been operating on the far side of the moon. For 1.5 years.

UC Irvine to test students living on campus weekly for COVID-19

"Irvine says students living on campus for the fall quarter will be tested regularly for the Corona virus about 3600 students are already living there, and another 3500 are set to move in by the end of the month. Under Albert Chang is the medical director of the school's student health Center and tells can next testing might be done once a week or once every other week, depending on what happens. We're doing the nasal swab. A PCR test for our students being protected, asymptomatic students being tested on campus. We're working closely with our own UC and medical centers Laboratory and the turnaround time. As we've told, students may take from 48 to 72 hour. But he says recent test results of students already on campus have come back in about a day about 2700 students have already been tested to, Chang says there have been no positive cases. So far,

US House Democrats Crafting New $2.2 Trillion COVID-19 Relief Package

"House. Democrats are preparing smaller corona virus for the leaf package. All right. So it's a trillion dollars less than their last proposal, but a trillion dollars more than what Republicans are ready to do. So they split. That More, but roughly, so they split the difference source tells us that the two point four trillion dollar package would include enhanced unemployment insurance stimulus checks, small business loans, and aid to airlines, and it says here you can talk to the right or the price tag is still about a trillion dollars more than the Republicans latest offer. But. But thought the skinny deal was something like seven or eight, hundred, billion dollars trillion dollars. Rounding now I think and I. Know They are in Congress Lana rounding lot around rounding going on. In fact, they probably call this isn't there I mean if you're. Just, a couple of hundred billion. So why not round that around? That's right well like we really have to pay. Right it the idea that it looks like they're getting closer together but not really I, mean, they're still talking about a massive difference between the two sides and I don't think there's much chance Manuchehr yesterday they're ready to restart talks but didn't give a timetable for any of that and I don't see how this happens before the election I just don't. Probably not and. I think both it's weird because I think. I mean you saw Goldman Sachs yesterday for for GDP for not the third quarter but for the fourth quarter from six to three. Based on. You know not having prospects for more stimulus so I can tell you that. The election will be over but I think the administration would like six percent a lot more to be able to brag about that although we're going to get that flash number for third quarter which should be. Twenty plus. like two weeks before a week and a half before the election. So you're going to hear how great debt is biggest-ever I guess twenty, three, twenty, four percents we heard from Brian Moynihan yesterday who said that you should have additional aid, but it should be targeted the Democrats in this latest thing that they've put forth still have payments going directly to people you know payments across the board president trump has mentioned that be something he'd be interested in but I think it. Makes a lot of sense and and this is something you would probably hear from most of the Republicans with the smaller in the Senate with the smaller package that they've signed off on the idea of sending a blank check to ever sending a check to everybody regardless of whether or not you've been impacted on this. We'll probably pass the time of needing to do something like that. You need to get it to the businesses into the people who are suffering the most right now. Yes greed agreed.

"The Northwest expect to see fewer cases of the flu this winter. Because most of us are wearing masks at camels, Brian Calvert tells us, you still might want to consider getting that flu shot, Dr Dan gets says. We learn a lot about the flu every season from our friends down under Australia. They've had a very light through season really, because they're masking their social distancing their hand washing. And again there getting vaccinated. You could chance it by saying wearing a mask is enough. But the doctor advises. It's a risk you might not want to take, considering we're in the midst of battling another bad virus that goes by the name covert 19. If you're dealing with two viral infections, your body is now having the mount response on two different fronts space like fighting a war on two fronts.

"And, finally, on today's program off to Paris to get a roundup of a busy few days in the fashion calendar, I'm joined on the line by Dana Thomas Journalist and author of fashion apples the price of fast fashion the future of clothes always good at talking to maybe just bring us up speed quickly on what has what the show is look like I was in Paris a few weeks ago there was much discussion. Where we're going to be world video presentations again, and many brands saying very committed to actually getting models, and of course, journalists and buyers in seats again and having them walk down a catwalk. What happened. Well some of that's happening. There are shows and people are attending. In fact, there's an official French calendar and on the French calendar, it should it tells who is going to be showing like Gabriella Hurston who is going to be digital chanel showing some people are doing digital. Some people are doing both. The same in Milan summer having shows and some are digital and. I don't know who's attending. I saw that Brian boy the the influence Sir is back in Milan and he's thrilled to be back in. Milan. I saw that on his instagram or his twitter feed but I mean, I know that for example, I contribute to the New York Times magazine is a New York Times as a freelancer, and that team is not coming to Paris spending Friedman's reviewing everything from her home in New York. So you know I know that. Americans aren't really aren't allowed to come to Europe anyway. So there's the whole Chinese can't people can't come to. Europe. A lot of people can't travel. So I, think it's mostly people who are in town who are going I was asked to go to some shows in Paris I have no interest going to watch them on digital. Why do you have no interest I'm curious because you're part of this. You know we're all in this together we that we we have to go out and support and a lot of people say the same thing with sporting events as well. Of course, if the if the guidelines are followed, etc you know. These things tend to drift away and become part of the sideline or do you think that the future is digital? We don't need to go to shows anymore even go into shops. I think that know they're pushing it too soon too fast. I. Think you know we don't need to go into shops and or we don't need to go to fashion shows right now. In fact to me, they feel frivolous and not taking what's going on terribly seriously Yes. We need to boast our our morale a bit by sitting next to people who could have the bro The bug and sitting there with a mask on and you can catch union, catch it through your eyes. You know I don't feel like taking that risk I'd rather be safe and I think that's the most important thing right now.

Sustainability with Queer Brown Vegan

"I, say us. It's so lovely to meet you. I'm so glad to be talking to you today. Thank you so much again for having me glad Chris. I'm over the moon as you know because we we're we're super fans like the. Stock you on Instagram we found profile didn't we and I think I just loved title Queer Brown Vegan I thought it was. NEAT and I love the way you present your ideas like it's really colorful and beautifully made I. Think it's a really good thing you're doing that you're. Talking about. Urgent subject but making it kind of. Fascinating and interesting and alive for people not to skating because that's one of the things we've. Talked about like, how do you? Do what you're doing, which is well, what do you? What what would you say? You do tell us what you how you define yourself. I would describe yourself as a queer environmental educated that provides accessible environmental education on content for anyone interested in learning about environmentalism is as you live zero waste. What does that? What does that mean? Zero ways you know for a lot of has a broad term of. The Way to define it but zero waste and lowest to me it looks into higher able to create redesign the way that you view plastic and so understanding it from an individual impact, but also a global impact. So understanding that reducing your waste in different ways but also acknowledging the fact that the plastic crisis is a global environmental justice that is disproportionately harming black indigenous people clerked me globally and now we have countries that. That heavily exploited by colonialism are dealing with the amounts of waste that is usually delivered from countries like the UK and United States with waste where do you know what are you? What are you talking to us from? Los Angeles. Oh I thought you are and I thought you were in Queens New York, is that I recently moved back home grown up but I'll be back in New York and twenty one. Okay. So you're. So you're I in La boy and tell us your story because your upbringing really affected how you have come to this. Place as the career, Brian Vegan doesn't it growing up? My parents had immigrated an one, thousand, nine, hundred, eighty s onto la from Mexico and so we grew up low income living in a way with affordable housing programs or programs that are sponsored by the government and so many of these. In, Los Angeles are known to live in communities are already low income but that are nearby toxic facilities or places that generate noise pollution in some sense in. So my aspects of environmentalism grew at a young age because of like based off survival. So it wasn't necessarily because I thought about being was about others what we have. So have to reuse it and use what I have to, and as I got older I. Started learning about environmentalism making these connections within myself saying like wise the air quality in my neighborhood this way why? What is climate change? How does that interconnect to me and so the older are realizing my own identity great being clear and then I realized the people who usually talk to me or that represented in the environmental spheres We're usually straight white men and so I ask myself like Oh. Is this this is Interesting because I don't see anyone who looks like or comes from a community, and so the ones university I realized the fact that many of the classes were dominated by, of course, white students and not to say that it was bad. But it was to say that there was a lack of diversity representation within those movements in you know having the lack of support having to deal with certain spaces in the environmental field dealing. With Homophobia in like thirty remarks being told to me I realized that that wasn't necessarily space I needed to be an and so leaving after college that's something I want to cultivate it because had I known that there was a educator growing up or had had a mentor like that it would have changed my outlook in environmentalism but instead I had to go through all those hurdles and challenges to unlearn that things that I was taught. To really get to where I'm at today. So you felt that you were being given environmentalism from a very straight white mine ankle and you're like a whole other spectrum out here is. It's interesting that. As. Well, isn't it like do how poverty and like like I remember like growing up like I went to a very smart school wherever and money, and so if you brought in your lunch in a plastic pot, for example, it was kind of considered like you poor. So, there's so much attachment to. What did they do? What did they push wants? Did they went to the school lunches or? Like, yeah, it was just buy something or you know you just go out and buy something whereas like. and. So there's a lot of like use. The is about image know like if I can afford to buy this thing that I can throw away. Of. People. See people striving for that. Almost it's funny. Do you do you think that is I think the idea of consumerism is so ingrained in all of us you know whether would be in our television show our media art magazine anything read it's all about Centrum consumers at a young age even to I remember kids like shaming. We're having thirsted close or even does the fact of like reusing resource that is now seen today as like environmentally-friendly now, which is great to see that shift but back then I, think it's because we ingrained in our own children in our own parents consumerism is a good thing. Yeah well, especially in the say, that's like the kind of the currency celebrity and. Consumers Arctic the to. What degree

Apple stock continues to drop

"We're entering the final stretch of the year in here we all with the five hundred virtually flaps for the year. So far guy in various shows we've talked about various iterations of apple being the king of the market apple being the tell the market appleby and the barometer. Here we are with apple down about fourteen percent. In. The past month. So what does that? Tell you. And I go back to some Steve set a week or so ago that you know he -ticipant at trading down to this or that ninety, five, ninety, six level and I happen to agree with them. One of three that we saw on Monday was a twenty five percent move from peak to trough. But historically, and there is history for this the sell offs of magnitude Annapolis. You've seen anywhere from thirty two to thirty, eight percent and I think you know that ninety five level probably put you right there on the screw so. What it tells me is as much as everybody you know I understand the reason you wanna own apple you just want to close your eyes their here's a stock that's given you many opportunities over the last decade. To get in at meaningfully lower levels than the prior all time high, and in recent past I, mean within the last two years a move from two twenty five, which was at the time it all time high one fifty and a straight line, and then recently I know this is pre split but the move from three twenty, five down to two forty and a straight line. So the stocks given you those opportunities and quite frankly we're on the precipice of exactly that again mill. You know you could two guys point that hundred day moving average is now ninety seven and apple, and you can to a guy just said before you can close your eyes and you've been rewarded with that in the stock for me I think those days are gone. And you'd want dip by as you said before, this is the ultimate buyers barometer. Now you have an upward moving two hundred day it's at eighty, four nine. I'm gone past the ultimate. We really get the sell off that I think we're going to get. That's the level Melissa that's going to be tested in apple and just think about how many people will get gutted in their idea, their brain, their emotions if apple traits to mid eighties that will be terrible for the overall market. Sentiment is is key here Karen especially when you're talking about a lot of retail investors to had gone into the markets in general gone into apple specifically wrote it all the way up and here we are I'm wondering if you think apple is as important a barometer for the market or if there's maybe something else on your screen whether it be a stock you own or not. That is a good tell for you on the market's direction. I think apple is still pretty good on the market's direction. I think long long all the way to the top still long probably by more trades down. If turns on further I. think it still is such an Americana Company and I think that the Nasdaq has obviously moved market up and it's now move the market down I. Still Think it's central to our all of our sentiments very widely owned retail stock as well. So I do think apple is still barometer but I think today I think it was a guy talking early that this fiscal. Floor not being there I think is increasingly important Kudos to Brian Kelly for calling when it really I felt it was very very likely to happen now likely. Yeah.

"Welcome back to another edition of moving to live our ethos movement is a lifestyle notches activity. We tried to interview professionals across the movement spectrum because we understand at the end of the day, anybody who is involved in movement either wants their clients patients or athletes to either move more or move better whether it's to move with less pain or to move more efficiently. Some of our best guests come from recommendations from other guests and a big. Thank you to Andy Gillam who recommended today's guest Lisa McFadden they arresting thing with podcasting is i. now have lineage of three people in a row starting with Brian Gary To. To Doctrine McFadden today hopefully two or three more as far as I can trace it's not who you know is who you know who knows somebody. So Dr McFadden thank you for taking time to talk to moving to live this afternoon. Absolutely thank you for having me. My favorite question I always ask on moving deliver the first one I. Always ask is to get an elevator. You get to talking because the elevators really slow because somebody's pressing all the buttons and they say, so what do you do what your thirty second? Not In a negative way elevator spiel my name is Lisa McFadden and I. I'll man and this one's a Turkey one I wear lots of different hats But yeah so. The way I look at what I do is I really put science into practice whether it's with athletes or with patients and Meyer expertise is in bio mechanics. So I like to used by mechanics to help people move better and then I also liked to inspire whether that's inspiring communities around science or whether that's inspiring. Students through mentorship in education. Right. Now, if I'm correct your in South Dakota. Yes that's correct. I work at Stanford Health See Falls South Dakota. And I know we were chatting a little bit before we started recording and both of us grew up in upstate new. York and I have to be honest I never thought I would end up in Pittsburgh. Pennsylvania, I never thought I would go to Grad School in Alabama and I would imagine that there's an interesting story going all the way from New York state with multiple stops all the way to South Dakota and I would imagine if you're anybody else like anybody else in the movement field is probably a few more stops along the way before you retire. Well, it's funny. I almost ended up in Pittsburgh. Along my way and I've spent some time in Alabama on a couple of different business trip. So it sounds like we've got a similar. Set of journeys But yes I I grew up in upstate New York in a little town called the sweet go not quite as little as where I heard you up. But? Yes. So I grew up on Lake Ontario My Dad was a doctor in I. Always always wanted to be a doctor specifically pediatric Orthopedic Surgeon, and my dad always told me no, you do not He said you really WanNa be an engineer and I said, no, No, no dad engineers are big nerds. And he said you're really good at math and you you have passion for this and I. Really suggest you become an engineer. So I very boldly went to the University of Rochester Pre and applied math saying you're wrong dad. But you know had a had a moment of clarity probably after my first year I did realize and did some self reflection and thought you know the type of. Mother that I wanted to be in the type of you don't grown up that I wanted to be really do not not focus around having call and prioritizing patients, which is absolutely something that you have to do but really being able to have a little bit of flexibility in In my lifestyle and so I finally listen to my father after a long time of not and. decided that I would actually transfer into biomedical engineering where I ended up focusing on bio mechanics as my concentration with minors in mechanical engineering and applied math. throughout my Undergrad I really really enjoyed all of that and so as I started thinking about what was next I started getting really interested in robotics and in two that feel that was emerging back. Then decided that I really wanted to go and get a PhD in that. So I had been at ski resorts I grew up ski racing and I was in Montana with our family on vacation and watched a bunch of ski. Racers who had disabilities whether they were in a sit ski or whether they were missing leg skiing and I was just very inspired I looked at them versus like while they're amazing. They're they're better skiers than I am and then you could see that as soon as they were off the hill where they were excelling the rollout of daily life challenges. So I started getting really interested in prostates wanting to kind of help people that you needed additional help outside of. Being Super, rockstar athletes to help them in their daily lives and so robotics was sort of that pathway for me. My senior design project ended up being a surgical robot and then I ended up getting into Carnegie Mellon at the Robotics Institute which is where I almost went to Grad School and then the University of Utah in my husband and I. Boyfriend at the time looked at each other and said, we should go skiing. So, Kinda took that wildcard robotics institute was number one ended the US at the time but decided to go out to Utah where they had just one anger from the NSF in robotics, and so I was in the bio engineering department and kind of hybrid into mechanical engineering. So I really took courses and had faculty the Committee from both worlds and I was able to do there was. My my PhD was focused on spinal cord injuries and what we were working on with functional electrical stimulation, supporting an array of electrodes and putting them into the peripheral muscles, and then stimulating those and my job was to figure out what the mechanics looked like. So creating models of the limb and then creating control algorithms to figure out how we can control this limbs yet somebody to go from sitting to standing. And to do it in a way that they didn't get tired while they were standing because the way our muscles work. If you contract one all the way, you might get yourself to go into a specific movement but then that muscles eventually wanting to fatigue and you can't can't sustain it. So what does that look like as well?

Hopefully that happens again but writing with anybody else that kind of comedy I mean I can work on a Sitcom I can work on animation with other people but. Unless Iran it and but I would still wind up using those guys like I would probably bring those guys to be in sketches. I would try to hire somebody like Paul after write it with me and Paul Tompkins was still want that sensibility. Yeah. Yeah. I would still want those people. He's he's Hilarious I mean you look at the writers in the performance on that show and it's just an amazing collection of really funny people a bunch of misfits. Fell together Yup Yup. Now, let's see a comedy classic. It is especially for comedy writer like you said, because that's the fine needle to thread where you're making a show that the greater public can laugh at but also is going to be revered by your peers. Right. But when you're making it, you don't know that. But yeah. No. But to a certain extent, ID 'cause I didn't write on the first step or the first. Season guys had written the first four episodes by themselves. So when I came in the second season came in as a fan and came in and going this is like our generations setv right? Really may not be as bigger is mainstream as SNL going to be like doing the funniest smartest stuff out there you know yeah. SCTV's told we can't Oh my God we can't get into see TV right now that's a whole nother. Discussion we should ask Brian though because you just put out a full music album GRANDPA metal. Yes.

But I'll kinda take as long as there's people will let me my book took me almost a year to write the album came out in February earlier starting production in March on these two videos. So, one we finally finished because we did it you know social distancing way we did resume. That came out GRANDPA metal came out last month the single it's really about it specifically after I go after Scotty all the jokes are like old man jokes but it's really about guys my age that are still in the style of music, right but then are stuck in the eighties that won't listen to new. Kinds of heavy metal, they only like maiden and Metallica, and the stuff that we are. Right right yeah. Yeah. kind of this crusty get off my lawn and heavy metal. I saw that you you do a cover of. Take on me a metal cover. So I guess that win escape to criticism. Yeah, well, it came from in Karaoke. Shares and whenever I've done. Karaoke, it's not my favorite thing to do. But when I've done it I, always do it metal style I'll just yell everything right and make everything metal hit the high notes that way. Yeah. Well and you're doing a live show soon, right? Yeah.

"On. Mario? You're on Mario Lopez joining me now and zoom from the office actor. Brian Baumgartner. Welcome back to the show man Nice to see a reo. It's great to see you. Now you were supposed to do this with Ben. Silverman. One of the. Producers of the show who is also doing the podcast with you correct. That's right. So Go ahead. No say so so is this based on the podcast is going to work sometimes you'll get banned sometimes he'll consistently get. Brian. Consistently. Get me yes I. Show up every day as I have for fifteen years but yes, occasionally he'll pop in. Now, he he had the idea and went to spotify about you know there's been a lot talked about written about the office and he wanted us to tell our story, and so he approached me about partnering with them and executive producing with them an oral history of the office. So going back. And when he asked me to partner I was like I dunno, I started thinking about. We haven't found the show in seven years. The last seen that we filmed was seven years ago yet today. It is the most watched show in television isn't that amazing seven years after we finished and so I just had this idea and wanted to explore why like why is this show still resonating and specifically why are eleven year olds twelve year olds thirteen like why is this new audience coming in and why is it cool? Why am I in a Billy Irish sought You know I I saw my fifteen year old nephew with an office t-shirt. The other day I'm like how what? I'd heard any loves it and he was going on but you're right. It's incredibly fascinating and God bless streaming for. For that. Why would why do you think that is if you had to sum it up well I mean we come up with a bunch of theories and I go back. Can I talk to everyone I assembled over one hundred hours of of personal interviews so And Talk to everybody I mean Steve Carell who hasn't really talked about the show since he left now years ago, sat down with me for a number of hours and we talked about it and I think there's a lot of reasons one that never really occurred to me specifically about why it's attractive young kids when we were on right and we. Were struggling. That's the other thing. We tell the story that we were almost dead after six episodes, and then after twelve, we were definitely debt I mean Angela Kinsey tells the story of taking the name plate off of her trailer. 'cause it was we were we were done and we there was an idea I don't remember the number, but it was like. Oh if they're two hundred million people who work in offices in the United States. So if a percentage of them like the show, then we're set but I think what we didn't realize was the attraction of the show to young people I, think one of the reasons is. That the office. is a mirror in some ways to the experience of school you're sitting in class haven't unreasonable boss slash teacher that makes you do unreasonable things at times rules that don't. Don't make any sense..

"Welcome back to the show. Okay so Monday morning. I get back on the phone with Brian Colon in from every song and he says hey so I went into our database. I looked at our Christmas playlist. We have eleven versions of. We wish you a merry Christmas in our database and Brian. Deane's is not among them. What yeah it was really weird on the Friday. He was like I recognize the song and on Monday. He was like. I don't know I guess I made a mistake because it's not there and I'm trying to think of possible reasons why that would happen. And he said that like one of the possibilities is maybe it is in our database is just not coming up in my searches you know. Is there the possibility that something happened with our systems? Something rogue happened and somebody uploaded a song and they got the artists the song title and some other things wrong in the Meta data entry. Sure it's just the whole cascading series of errors that would have to happen to kind of put a Phantom Song in there and get all the data wrong and then just to have ripped it off of Youtube in the first place which is something that we don't do the chances of that happening. It's kind of like a comet hitting a comet over your house right. So that's you know or or you know getting attacked by a shark and Grizzly bear the same day like it's you know it's not impossible and I can't sit here and say that it's impossible but I mean it really. I wrack my brain to think how it would be possible. So what's the other possibility? Well he also said like maybe it was never in our database at all. Maybe someone at a Kroger hacked into their their system and we're playing it off a CD. No but that's said that was as likely to bear attack. Yeah if you're going to hack into your corporate. I like his ability to rate probabilities. Millions according to horrific. If you're going to lake hack into like like when you have read every time had a retail job where it was like canned music and somebody like figure out how to get there and music on it wasn't to play like more seasonal hits like it was to play music that humans light. Listen I am so tired of this demon Martin Standard what. I really wanted to hack into from youtube players. You Merry Christmas so every song. Brian had like one last theory about what might have happened. Which at the time. I found very convincing. Which is then he just had like. Imagine yourself in brine shoes right. At the moment he walked into Kroger. You're in a grocery store a busy time of year. There's a lot of people. There's a lot of noise you know you're hearing bits and pieces. Maybe especially over the store speakers. Which sometimes aren't the best and you know stuff in the challenging environment. If you asked me to put money on it I would say you know this. It was probably a case of the song being this hurt in the store. It's difficult for me to say that I make music myself and it's difficult to say because you you know. If you'd asked me that question I would be one part of Barris. The one point. Maybe a little bit annoyed that you would ask the question in the first place. So he's saying it's like your clients mistake. Yeah what he's saying is like if you're in a circumstance where it's loud where your kids distracting. You like it's possible to miss hear your song and like sure. It's possible that Song Brian is lying to me and like I can't see their database and I have no idea whether he's telling the truth but like what's more likely. Is it more likely that ever song went on Youtube found a version of? We wish you. Merry Christmas. Like twenty-five views ripped it in violation of copyright law. Put it on their playlist to play and Kroger as all over the country and then Brian Deane just happened to walk into one as it was playing or is it more likely that he just misheard. The song like people miss here songs all the time also ever song. Brian told us that there is a version of. We wish you merry Christmas in their system. That does sound a lot like Brian. Deane's and he thinks that that is the likely hope bread. I don't know dude. I still just have a hard time imagining that. A musician would not recognize a song they recorded. I mean if it was an instrumental cover. It would make some sense to me but there was one thing that was nagging at me. Which is like do you remember how? I Talk to Allah. Brian's bandmates yeah one of them. This guy's AC. I asked him directly like. Do you think that Brian just could have misheard? His own song. Anzac was like honestly. Brian has one of the best ears of anybody that I've ever met. His ear is UNCANNY I can't imagine that he would be wrong. Brian like is the person who sends me clips of raised theme from Star Wars next to the emperor's themed show how they're how they're how similar and predicted the end of the Star Wars Movie. At least a little bit Based only on the musical themes from the first doors yes the soundtrack and and business on the recurring. Musical motifs came up with spoilers for the movie. Yeah what a lunatic insane so I just wanted to test Brian's ear like was he actually as good as that claimed he was. Now what you need to know about Brian. Is that beyond just star wars. He's like scores in general. Okay so I. I called up musician Brian and told him whatever song. Brian had told me that they couldn't find a song in the database and at first he was like really questioning himself. Do you think I'm crazy? I'm starting to think I'm crazy. And maybe all I mean a piano version with some drums and a base of We wish you merry Christmas may be sound similar. We aren't sure if you're crazy and we WANNA find out okay. So we have come up with a game that tests. How good you are at recognizing music. Oh Jeez and it will help us understand why you think that it was your song that you heard in the storm. Okay okay since I know that you are John Williams Fan and since Zach specifically mentioned your ability to pick out star wars music. I am going to play some star wars or not star wars music for you. Tell me if if it if it is from star wars or not we go. This is track number one star wars not stores..

"Okay. Yeah this her hip differently right now. See You remember that we? We spoke to a former employee of the install radio network on background. Told me like the company was so desperate for Christmas music that the idea that they would go to Youtube and Grab Bryan. Song was like not insane to them. Brian from ever song did actually confirm the first part of that theory. Which is they are slammed. Every holiday season but also. He told me that this season just keeps getting longer. I remember a study that we read That was testing number Christmas songs and of testing the appetite public appetite for for the very songs that we're talking about the most familiar. Christmas songs and what came back was people you know. Sixty to seventy percent in in in that range of the people in the survey were saying. You can't start early enough you know. It was a little bit of a surprise for us but it's so people will say one thing I think. Think and say well. It's kind of a trope Christmas music. I here in it but deep down inside. They like hearing a little Christmas music and in October. Apparently so if people like to hear the songs around October like how early do you have to start thinking about Christmas? Season programming like what to Wednesday July? That's a whole process. It's it's it's like we we mobilized for war in around August. Yeah so I was starting to feel like I was on the right track and I asked every Song Brian. Hey can I play you musician? Brian's we wish you every Christmas and when I did ever Brian was like Oh yeah I recognize that he recognizes yes. I believe that was part of our Christmas. Mix that we put together I WANNA I WANNA say. The song was probably used within the last two years or so. He said that he was pretty confident that he'd heard this before because they listen to their holiday playlist in the office over the holidays. They eat their own dog food. Yeah basically that's like how Matt Lever was like wanted and one this argument but was like we should have in the bathrooms Gimblett. We should have not premium but free spotify because we should have the experience of listening to ads because listeners. Listen to ads which was like the most. I don't think I've ever disagreed. Philosophically with Matt harder the net decision and every time. I go to the bathroom makes me. But it's idiots mentality don't WANNA go into it. Got New big fight with madly R- about that you did or yeah really. I was like I thought I was crazy. I got into a big fight with him where it's basically like. I don't understand what you're doing this. You're making this a less pleasant place to work while you do that so I felt and he was like in his response was like you. Yelling at me is making this less pleasant place to work. And that's probably right and first of all this is on slack. So I'm not yelling at you very strongly you have a very you have like when you're yelling over dykes. It's very odd yelling slack voice but but I thought that I could move him in any direction but he is so certain that this is a great thing that he's doing the worst is spotify now runs. Ads For reply all Someti- oh so I get to be pooping and hear my own voice it rules. It's like a nightmare from him so bad anyway. They played Christmas including Brian. Deane Song So. I asked Brian from ever Sung. How they got their hands on it. How would ever song end up with programming song like that? I guess I would say I would ask your listeners. If they uploaded the song to Maybe the CD baby You have deals with a number of smaller companies. I don't think that he did. He told me that the only place he really put it up as Youtube. Is that a thing where ever song or in store audio network will look for songs on Youtube. If that was the you know I I don't. I don't believe that we've ever just onto YouTube Now so I would. I would say that I did. They have any CD's made I think they burned their own CDs like they actually just had a town like one of those CD burning towers on their computers and just burned it that way. Yeah that's interesting. I mean I have to look but I can tell you You know just by the way that we work It would have to come through. An aggregate or a hundred percent of our music comes from those aggregate is so Ryan was basically like these aggregated that we work with have just massive massive music libraries. And so it'd be stupidly labor for them to go hunting for new Christmas songs on Youtube. That weren't even in the format that they need them to be into play in the store. It's easier for us to to be provided with a file. That's you know in a in what they call a Kodak compression technology that you're ready to go Sort a little bit of a mystery. Then yeah he was out of town when this when I had this first conversation with him but he said look. I'm going to go back to our office. Check in our database. And then I'll be able to tell you exactly how we got this song so this first interview was on a Friday and he told me to call him back on Monday. And at this point I am super stoked because I'm like we're going to figure out how this song ended up in Kroger after the break. Brian.

"So the first and most obvious thing that I wanted to look into was that Brian said the only place on the Internet he put the song was on Youtube. But he's just one of four members of the band that recorded it so one of those people could have you know published somewhere or given it to someone who worked at the. Macon Kroger so I wanted to like get in touch with his bandmates and I got in touch with this guy. John Who Played Guitar. Played Bass on it. Can you think of any reason why it would be there? I can only attributed to someone's impeccable taste but you weren't like sending you weren't like secretly uploading this to spotify or or sending executives or anything I have. I have a CD tower. That I can. And I think I made about fifty copies gave them out to six or eight people. And that's it and I don't know that I gave it anybody who lives in making and then there was Johnson. Zach Hazak. Yes this is Alex Goldman. How're you doing? And he was like no wasn't me? I did not pass it onto anyone. In fact I was a couple years old lots going on. I'd almost forgotten that we done the project me on this so there was one last possibility. Which is this guy named Miguel? Who played drums on the track but he didn't even remember ever according it in the first place so. I'm pretty sure it wasn't him who leaked it to kroger right okay. So if Brian and his bandmates didn't know how the song ended up at the Kroger. Maybe the people that work at that Kroger might have some idea so I decided to give them a call department. They help you yes. We call the floral department because our belief was that it wouldn't be so busy and they would have a moment's talk. Ooh I like that. Yeah do you know where the music that the that is played over the speakers at Kroger comes from? Oh No I do not. I mean I'm assuming they have their own radio station they use. I mean I really don't then. She transferred me to the customer service desk at her store and they were like. I have no idea where the music comes from is piped in from somewhere so I was like well. It's probably piped in from like Kroger corporate so I decided to call the National Kroger Customer Service Line and they were also like we have no idea. Honestly I'm not sure that they get Pandora. Sure they suffer there. I'm not really sure about it. He didn't know the answer. I started sending emails to people at Kroger Corporate. In the meantime I was just calling Kroger. Employees like all across the country. Just trying to get a sense of how music in the store even works just like would it be possible for some rogue employees to like grab the Oxford and plug in their iphone? There's really no way to do that. Unless you're using the The like the intercom own kind of music. That plays all the time in the store. Yes so there. There's no way for me to adjust like the station. I I can just volume and that's got it also. Pj if you really want to curb employees. Just ask him about the Christmas music you you think of the worst Christmas Music. You've never heard that's like can you give me some examples? Santa Claus and every song it wasn't it wasn't like the song you know. Listen to you. It's the bad cover version by someone you've never heard of. One woman said that one time she was in the store and she heard five different versions of Jingle Bells back toback. Oh can you imagine? It's so painful. Yes there's a lot of room for like jazz. Improvisation and that's either no. You can't really make it your own. Also it was a total long shot but while I had him on the phone I played them Bryan Song to see if they recognized it. Sis familiar to you at all it. Very welcome plate over the holiday but I but then there's this one woman who worked at a kroger in Colorado. Does this ring a bell.

"On? This one is much more confounding because the more I worked on it like the less certain I became the answer and I basically come out the other side believing two contradictory things simultaneously which is absolutely painful for my very linear brain which is incapable of abstraction of any kind. Okay so my hope is if I tell you the story you might be able to help me come closer to understanding where the truth lies okay. I can't promise I will like insightful. Fighting the truth but I'm excited to see if Ivan. Pinon think of this less as a super tech support more as a philosophical journey on the nature of truth all right do you WanNa do you WanNa wear like professor. Jackie tweet out. I was actually thinking about a tiny I was actually thinking in. The tradition of the classic Philosophers Wear Toga and one of those rings of like of like leaves that they wear around their years. Okay what's the story so we heard from a listener named Brian? Deane who got in touch with us just after Christmas. He lives in Savannah Georgia. He works for Gulfstream. The company that makes the airplanes. Hey Brian can you hear me good? How are you and this story actually started a few years ago when Brian got a new piano. Extremely excited about having this piano and to celebrate that I had a couple of friends who play the saxophone and the drums and bass and recording equipment. I said let's do Christmas album Just through the joy of having piano So we recorded a Christmas album in my living room as wholesome friend activity. I know right so that was back in two thousand sixteen and he uploaded it to Youtube. He burned a couple copies for family and friends and he basically forgot about it and then this past Christmas is driving back from a family visits Chicago when his daughter has to p so they stop in. Macon Georgia says about three hours from their house at a kroger because and I didn't realize this brand is like the grocery stores the best place to go back from because no one's ever in the bathrooms love of grocery store bathroom so they get out of the car. They hustle into the grocery store and sort of like midway down the aisle. He stops and looks up. I was in the frozen food department. And they're playing Christmas music. This is December thirty first. He stands there staring at the speaker above him. Because it's playing a version of we wish you a merry Christmas with a piano. Part feels very familiar. The first thought that went through my mind was oh. I thought I made up that piano. Lick on we. You Merry Christmas but I must have stolen it or heard it from somewhere because here it is playing and then as I listened a little more. Oh my God I didn't steal the slick this is me. Brian is convinced that the version that he heard a kroger is the exact one that he made in his living room. So here. And what's going through your mind when you hear yourself on the a speakers at the Kroger. I mean just complete disbelief. Just shock absolute shock but by that point. I had made it to the bathroom so there was literally another guy in there and I couldn't contain myself. You know and bathroom medicate law number one. It was like and I got. I got to say something. This is crazy but I did this in my living room so funny. I think he actually sets up to like well. That's that's cool man. How can this possibly happen that one? I'd be playing there and to literally be there to hear it. It was. It was a bizarre experience so he is hearing his own version of we wish. Merry Christmas and a kroger but he didn't publish it or sell it to Kroger Corporate. Anything like that no okay. Do you want to hear it right here? We go the other thing. You should know that this is number thirty seven of this song on Youtube and at least five of those views are looking at it in preparation for this kind of a jazzy version yet. He's a jazz. I was wondering how you recognize. It was his but I feel like it is actually distinct. Recognize that right okay. So it's like the grocery store is either pirating music off of Youtube or one of his friends stole the music and sold it to the grocery store. I have no idea but right. After he used the bathroom. He rushed over to the customer service desk and it was like what's going on here and they were friendly but just kind of came up with a lean over and yelled to someone else. How do we play music? And they said Oh something like I had to Muzak And I kind of I kind of got the feeling These people. I'm not sure if I'm going to be able to push this with them. What I want it to be. Is that ninety nine percent of the time they just use like some paid for you know legitimate music licensing thing that this one time just like somebody at Kroger just heard this and they loved it so much that they needed to hear it in the store I used to do you know the Mannheim Steamroller Christmas now Mannheim. Steamroller is like a prog rock Christmas stuff. And it's that sounds bad and worse than you can possibly and I used to I. I used to work at a convenience store where they played the the Mannheim Steamroller Christmas album from November to January and it was the worst adventure where they played like this one cassette tape that I swear to God only head Monster Mash and attack of the killer tomatoes both good songs the first two thousand times shore so he asked me to answer two questions for him. The first one obviously is like how did the song get there and the second was like if this song is being piped into Kroger's all over the country he should get the money. Are they do any money and how much they're definitely do some money. You Take People's music and play it right so that was my mission okay..

"That's the same as also in the northeast part of the United States in a in a fictional town yeah so I think you know early on. It was just trying to fall there. Steps a little bit but even before that you know it's just trying to draw as many comics as I could. You know it got really good at drawing like Garfield and I'd love of disease and religious early sketches drawings on the back of jeans jackets for kids in high school and you sold them right. There was a couple of guys you want him. You Know Hey can you aerosmith uh-huh oh God. That's a tough one. I embroidered yes. Yes logo on the back pocket of a pair of jeans. I had yeah yeah. I had those for a really long time. One of my big collection regrets not having kept though I know I know I'm kind of ashamed. Not have that didn't make it in high school portfolio. It's right right now. In College. You had another mentor Ron Menard who was a former editor of the Patriot news. Who advised you to never work for a newspaper. So why is that and then. Why didn't you heed his advice. Yeah I mean he was a he was in editor at the Patriot News in Harrisburg and I interned at the Startup magazine that that he had begun called the Harrisburg city paper or something like that and it went on to become like Harrisburg City magazine so I was doing everything from doing illustrations for undoing some of the paste up work you know this was early days of the computer kind of thing in the thing that Ron was great about was showing me the value working really hard but also the really I mean. Didn't you already get that from Your Dad. I did but but he was showing me in a way that was more aligned with creatively what I was going to be doing. My Dad applied the work ethic thing and then Ron was showing me some of the opportunities that might exist for the talent that I was starting to to show but the cool thing about Ron was that he showed me that like okay at six o'clock. We turn off the lights at the shop and we go home and we celebrate life. You know we you know we would go to have great dinners. We have glass of wine. You know we'd you the race tracks with the whole family kind of thing and it was it was just a kind of celebration of you'd always have music playing in the evening. He played the piano so it was it was kind of really interesting interesting balance between living and working. You know that I hadn't I hadn't really seen before early on in your career. You were doing a lot of work for business magazines and then on the weekends cans you'd disappear into pen and ink drawings in your sketchbook. Would you said lead you to a bit of a split personality some art directors and happened to see see your personal work and that's the type of material that they wanted from you. What was that like for you. At the time. It was really hard me. You were successful one thing desirous of doing something very different. Exactly you know I wasn't happy with the work that I was necessarily doing because it didn't feel like as if I was offering it distinctly as my own voice and the other thing that was real interesting thing was was the types of stories that I was being asked to illustrate. Were nothing like the types of stories that I wanted to be telling with my drawings right so for instance. If I'm doing something about computer you know like a modem or something you know. This is early days as right if I'm doing something like that but then I'm reading the Atlantic and there's this really interesting narrative piece or rolling stone has great feature and it's you know it's it's more like documentary entry style drawing on some level and there's a real kind of emotional component to those essays that I felt was completely lacking in my work a certain point I needed to kind of push a little bit harder and so when I started doing these pen and ink drawings and my sketchbook I started showing them around you know to our directors and friends who were designers that I respected and and you know I wanted opinions and you know Paul Sarah. Someone Leeann chapter was another person I sent some two but it was just xerox copies of black and white line art and with my name on the you know Manila envelope on the outside or something my phone number and I started generating work in that lead to more than you know. As for the style you began to develop Ella you said you found the less you added in the images the more emotionally impactful the pieces became and wondering if you could elaborate on that a little bit how did that simplicity actually create more resonance yes. It took time to get that too. I think a lot of what we're talking about some of that growth that happens. There's an artist you know you you find your visual voice or your stride in a certain point and a lot of it is experimentation a lot of it's failing and I think some of that early work though it was keeping me busy you know it was a lot of just letting the line we're kind of percolate to the top and then just scraping away all the phone you know what I mean of collage or mixed media things a lot of things that I was doing well in in school just a lot of searching right and then once you kind of find that mark it was more like okay okay this feels right and all these other things don't they feel unnecessary on some level and I think for those no my work no that I rarely ever show a kind of emotional feature on the faces of the characters that I draw they tend to be a bit more reserved in in that kind of illustrative device that a lot of people tend to rely on. I think about it more in terms of how close or distant people are from one another the gesture of someone like if someone when has their head down and they're sitting on the edge of bed and the light sir darker colors more muted that is so much more powerful than if you just show tears dropping from the corners of people's is right but it took time to get to that place where I understood that on my work there are very few illustrators that I think are really successful at capturing during that gesture I think your one I think Alison Bechtel is one. We talked about that when she was on the show and Chris ware where you can literally create an emotion with gesture align yeah which is just remarkable yeah. Thanks No. It's those two artists are amazing you know and Chris Rock Star you know and but he's someone that really can it feels emotional. It feels psychological on some but it also is like that vacancy of space not only in just individual frames but in in terms of how he designs a whole page you know he's masterful at it. There's a Swedish filmmaker name. Roy Anderson who's incredible doing. It's a lot of a lot of it. oftentimes is just spacing closer far apart. People are from one another can really define a lot and say a lot about a story without you. Actually having to oversell or Overcook can idea you've been illustrating the New York Times modern love column now for many years disclosure. Here's the first thing I read right now because it's also something you can now read on Fridays. It's pretty much the first thing I'll read in the New York Times on Friday. No matter what after all this time I'm your iconic illustration still captured the essays in the most brilliant of ways. You've described how you don't replicate the writer stories one hundred hundred percent but rather create a parallel story. Is this still your approach yeah yeah. I think you know as an illustrator. You know someone's calling on you to create a universe to create a whole new world for readers or viewers to kind of experience and I think if I was just going to recreate the same story might it'll just take a photograph and I'm not a great photographer. How did you first get the modern love Gig. I would say it's almost ten years. and there were two other illustrators that were doing it before me. Chris Neal was the one who is doing it just before me is amazing amazing love his work. I don't really really know why they switch gears because I thought he was doing a really lovely job but I think because I was an art director ago. You know my sense. Is that art directors you you carry with you the artists that you love working with and that you really enjoy appreciate and I suspect maybe they wanted some kind of change in it on some level but you know that's a question for them. Oh yes now I know you have good working relationships with your editors but do you ever get pushback or feedback from writers in the way that some of the writers writers and editors get pushed back or feedback from readers not as much from the right usually if I if I hear from a writer it's hey thank thank you so much for you know you've captured something or the tone of the piece. You know you really kind of you know you nailed it or something like that. I don't think I've ever received an email from mm. Someone say hey you blew it which you know I'm. I'm grateful that I haven't yet having said that. Readers will reach out and they will say hey. Do you miss this or you might have tried doing this on really the feedback on your illustration. I I read it all respond to all of it because it's super valuable you now. I mean when you're doing something as long as I've been doing this this column you. There is the concern that you kind of get into a routine right or you kind of rely on you know familiar. Thanks so to get that feedback is super valuable. You know and I really appreciate it when when it comes in and we had a there was one a reader who had read a piece yes it has been posted online and oftentimes pieces of personal line prior to them being printed of great and she caught something in a piece and it was about ethnicity and what she caught was something that I had caught but I hadn't I can't remember exactly the ethnicity of of the character in the piece but I tend to do a lot of the work in layers in photoshop the finish work most withdrawn by hand at first but I hadn't turned on one of the layers for skin tones and the reader immediately you know had emailed me and said hey you know this is is this is not right and she was hundred correct and you know I called The Times as soon as I got that email and I said hey we we need to fix this and you know good on the Times they you. You know they did immediately. You know because they recognize this. You know it's important..
