"She paused. But she didn't stop going for the feeder. And I just thought, no, this isn't going to happen. You know that teacher voice is effective. Debbie says she could see it was a mama bear and she could see a cub in the bushes below. You know, they don't want us. They don't want to eat me. They don't want to eat us. They just want their food. So show them all, find yourself a teacher voice. Well, last year, Debbie says she saw a mama bear and her three cubs in that area, but she says this close encounter was a once in a lifetime experience. That's pretty good. She has, I don't know if she's really a teacher, but she's got she's got to teach her voice. Do we all do we all not know that voice? That voice will stop. Get out from there. Your tracks. There it is. Get down, get down from there, right now. Go, go, go. Go. I didn't know. I didn't have that kind of a mom, and I wasn't that kind of a mom. Did any of you have that kind of a mile? Yes, I have that kind of a mom. Yeah. You know, I have never met your mother, but from your descriptions, I could see her with that voice. My mother was much softer than that. I don't think razor voiced that way. Now, my mother was the one that would clench your teeth together and as she's going, it's just like and I'm so sick of you kids not doing anything and I told her to dump. There's dump. And we've been all going to get another wave, here comes all the rampage. But can you hear that teacher voice like you're all lined up and you're going from the classroom to the cafeteria and you're poking the kid in front of you? Anybody stuck and then she comes on with that voice from there talking no talking. Get down. Get down from there right now. Go. Go. Go, go. Pocket down for my. Listen. Good lord. My mom did not have a teacher voice. My mom would be standing in the living room, listening to The Beatles or something on the record player. Smoking a cigarette looking out the window. And instead of the teacher voice, you kids are a disappointment. This is what we would get. Should we take a long drag on her smoke, blow the smoke out and say, sherry, marriage is not what you think it is. You know what I thought you were going to say? I thought you were going to say, that's when she would call her husband and say, we have a visitor outside. Could you deal with it, please? Sure. Oh, no. Oh no. My father didn't deal with anything. No. My mother would catch me to lie. And then she would say this. A liar and a thief go together. And all of a sudden I'd go, what? Now I'm stealing things, too? Just because I told some lie about something in school, but you remembered that line. You remembered that line. That sank in. Yeah, that was effective on her part. All right, if you're going to the mountains, be careful. It's scary out there, evidently. It's bob and sherry. At the pop and cherry show, we love celebrating anniversaries. But there is one anniversary that makes us cringe just a little. Everyone in the pool. That time you accidentally put an SUV into a swimming pool. We're celebrating the anniversary of us putting an SUV in the pool during one of our RV crazy tours. And to commemorate that, we're selling tank tops and t-shirts with a picture of the SUV in the pool to get yours, just go to bob and sherry dot com. Hit the shop tab. You'll make a splash. With a Bobb and cherry SUV in the pool tank top or T-shirt. From bob and sherry, bring whatever you drink and celebrate happy hour. 7 VM eastern live on the bob and sherry Facebook page. Tonight, it's bob and sherry. So I was just sitting here thinking that lady using her teacher voice to scare the bear away. And I think Doc's going to post that up on our Facebook. If you want to see that story, when we first moved out west when I was a little kid, my parents rented a house. We lived in a valley outside of Jackson hole. And it was everything was super duper rural, and they rented a house on the main road that ran through the valley with no neighbors anywhere in sight. There were no other kids to play with. It was just our House and some fields and a barn and the bridger teton national forest and mysterious lights in the sky, which is probably where I got fixated on aliens. And so the first time that my grandmother, my dad's mother, and his sister came to visit us, was a really big deal because they were born and raised in Philly, and they were city people. They had never my grandmother's idea of a trip to the country, was to drive to cape May because that beach was a little less populated than wild border Atlantic City, right? They had no experience of the wilderness, the country, rural, anything. And so they come out to visit and it was probably late September. It was before winter really kicks in because winter and Wyoming back then started before Halloween. So they're visiting and the house that my parents ran it. It was a really cool house. It had a wrap around ports, which is kind of unusual for the west, but it had this wrap around porch and windows that it was really, really nice. And so my grandmother and my aunt are there. And they're all excited to have their cowboy adventure because they've never been out of the big city before. And one of my dad's coworkers, my dad was working as a ranch hand, you know, because he wanted to be a cowboy when he grew up. And so he waited till he had a wife and three small kids, and then moved us to the middle of nowhere so that he could live out his dream. So he gets a job working as a ranch hand. And my dad looked like one of the extras in The Sopranos, so I'm sure that the day he showed up on horseback was a really fun day for the his fellow cowboys. Anyway, one of his ranch hand coworkers knows from my dad that the city folks are visiting. They've never been out of Philadelphia before and this is like a really big deal. So it's nighttime and everyone's in the living room. And the kids had gone to bed. So I only know this story from being told it because I was in bed. And this ranch hand Danny decides to play a little prank on my grandmother and my aunt. So he comes to the house, tiptoes up, and he looks in, climbs up onto the porch and he looks in the window and he sees my parents, my grandmother and my aunt, sitting around the living room talking. And he goes back to his truck and in the back of his truck, he has a taxidermied moose head. The bullwinkle. So he creeps back up onto the porch and he takes the moose head and he lifts it up. So the moose is peeking in the window. And it just breaks. He waits. And then my grandmother looks up and he moves the moose head away. And he sees that she's like, did I see something? And then really slowly the moose peaks back around and then pulls away. My grandmother lets out a scream, my aunt lets out a scream at that point. The guy, and I don't even know how heavy a taxidermy moose head would be. It was huge. The guy now, as quietly as he can, runs the length of the porch, holding the moose head up to the window. So it looks like this crazy glassy dead eyed moose is going 50 miles an hour through the porch. My grandmother, my aunt is on the couch screams, jumped up on the couch like she'd seen a mouse, screaming. My grandmother, oh, Jesus, Mary and the saints. We're gonna be killed. By a taxidermied moose head. My father flips on the porch lit, goes outside. The guy is collapsed, he's crying laughing so hard.

"Subdivisions, just wide open range. Now, ranchers drive their cattle to U.S. forest service land. The largest grazing allotment in the country, 127,000 acres of the bridger teton national forest. Last summer, they paid the federal government $1 35 cents a month for every cow and her calf. Summers. Price. How much each rancher will owe is tallied at a place called the counting gate. It's Jamie Burgess job to read brands or ear tags and call out which cows belong to which ranch. While his wife Rita adds up the totals. When the cows finally reach mountain pastures, they're handed off to range riders. Bring them. Like Britney heseltine, whose job is to watch over them all summer. And you're up here by yourself? Yes. Just be my horses, but three dogs and a cat. How long altogether? It'll be about 5 months. Every day for those 5 months, Brittany is out at dawn to check on the 600 or so cattle in her care. First thing in the morning, you come out on a rise and especially in the fall, the Elk are bugling and just talking to each other. Brittany earned her degree in veterinary science in 2019. This was her third summer as a range rider. It's really hard work. What's the attraction? What's the draw? Something about it speaks to my soul. I really can't describe what, but all winter long. I'm like, oh, a couple months more. A couple months more. And then I'll be up at home. Her home for the summer was a small trailer in an isolated camp, off the grid, no running water, no cell service. At the start of last summer, four of the 5 drift range riders were women. You told us that you thought women made the best range riders. Why would that be? Their hard workers. And I can't say that they're, you know, the men aren't good, but the women don't go to town. And as much as some of the men kind of have a tendency to visit the tavern. Yeah, they'll go. On the other side of the mountain. So what happened to the cowboys? I don't know. Maybe they're just not cut out for it. There's beauty up here. And danger too. Since listed as endangered species, wolf and grizzly bear populations have exploded in these mountains. Britney keeps track of the calves they kill. If it was actually killed by a predator, then there will be bruising on the hide on the inside. And it's very obvious. You know, like last year we lost 24 calves. They didn't come home. Now we lose between ten and 15% of our calves. It sounds like a lot. It's a lot. It would break us if it weren't for compensation program by the Wyoming game and fish department. So you get paid for every animal you lose. We do. Predators aren't the only threat to these ranchers, a growing chorus of critics argue cattle shouldn't graze on public lands at all. Consumption of beef is declining, and so is the number of ranches on the drift. There were more than 20 in the early 1990s, today just 11. The green river drift is so iconic that the cattle drive has earned a spot on the National Register of Historic Places. These remaining ranchers are determined to see that it's not just relegated to history books. So what does it mean to you to be doing what your father and your grandfather did? On the same list. That's my duck. Means a lot. It means a lot. Albert summers has no children, so to preserve this land and its tradition, he set up what's called a conservation easement. Preservationists have paid him to agree that his ranch will never be developed or subdivided, and to allow the public to use the land for recreation. That agreement will also apply to his partner ty swain as he takes over. And to his son's shed when and if he picks up the rings. So with the conservation easement, this land will not change. It will stay the same. It will stay the same. Well, no land stays the same. But this land will not be developed. And I will go to my grave peacefully with that knowledge. But just not tomorrow. Many traditions have left their mark on this land, Native Americans were forced to give way to fur traders, pioneers, and homesteaders. Today, it's the cowboy way of life that is fighting to hold on. Oh yeah. It's tied every year. I mean, we're down to the last dime at the end of the year. It sounds like you're not in it for the money. No, sir. No, we're not. You know, and if somebody says, you know, you're a rich rancher. Only rich in the fact that we're get to do what we do and we live where we live. And we get to see the sun come up over those mountains. That's the rich part of this job. It's not the money. Jeannie lockwood and her family are driving their cattle on the drift again this summer. So is Albert summers, though after 31 years in charge of the drive, he's handed that responsibility off to someone else, and Brittany hazel time, the young woman we met up in the high country, she's also back in the saddle this summer, and this year she was put in charge of hiring all the other range riders. When workers broke ground on an underground parking lot in the heart of Rome 15 years ago, they had no idea what their backhoes were about to unearth. The site turned out to be what Italian archeologists believe was once the pleasure gardens of the Roman Emperor Caligula, where some 2000 years ago all sorts of lavish parties, royal intrigue, and debauched behavior likely took place. Caligula became the third emperor of Rome in 37 AD, and he reigned for barely four years. He's been portrayed in history as one of the most deranged and despicable Roman emperors ever to rule, but as we first reported, last fall, scholars have been reexamining Caligula's story for years to see if history has it right. Could we discover some new fragments of truth and Caligula's gardens? We were more than happy to go to Rome to find out. The temples and palaces of Ancient Rome may have crumbled long ago, but the legend of one of its oddest emperors lives on. I saw sever each one at the neck. What most people know about Caligula comes from this iconic BBC series I Claudius, which was based on two historical novels by Robert graves. In the show, Caligula turns his palace into a brothel. Makes his horse a high ranking senator and declares himself a living God. It's a torrid tale of incest. Infanticide..

"Walk out. Move cows, but it's not quite as good as little shed swing, the son of Albert's ranching partner, tie. Jazz 5 years old? Yes. SHAD, if you can do this, I can do this, okay? SHAD got to do it with a sour apple lollipop in his mouth. All of us, with the help of some fearless herding dogs move cattle over hills across creeks. Through shimmering groves of Aspen, along what cowboys call driveways. And across highways, north toward those distant mountains. How long does it take you to get them to the summer feeding area? So it takes about 13 days from when we start to when we get up there where we want to be. We travel up to about 60 to 70 miles. Albert summers is one of 11 ranchers who work together to drive more than 7000 head of cattle on the green river drift. Those 11 ranches all lie in Wyoming's green river valley, south of Jackson hole. Here the Wyoming ranges to the west, the wind river range is to the east. The valley between is part bone dry high desert and verdant river drainage, where Native Americans once hunted buffalo. Today, the green river runs through Albert summers ranch. And your family's been doing this how long? My family's been doing this. Since mount 1903 Albert's neighbor, Jeannie lockwood's family has been at it even longer. This was my granddad's branch. He homesteaded this in 1889. Her ranch is about 20 miles south of Albert summer's place. We joined her on horseback before dawn, the day she started moving her cattle north. There's that sun. It's gonna pick up over the hill. Along the same path her family has trek for 125 years. So you're gonna be doing this for the next two weeks. Yes. Getting up at four o'clock in the morning or three or two 30 or two 30. Yeah. Those early starts barely compare to what old timers endured when cowboys stayed out under the stars all night and the sun all day until they got the herd to high pastures. Well I think we can go home. What do you think? Today, they go home after each day's drive. The next morning they trailer their horses back to where they'd left the cattle. Round up those that have strayed and move them out again before dawn. The old chuck wagon, it's been replaced by a cooler and the tailgate of a pickup truck. But compared to what you're grandfathering, yeah. This is easy. Yeah, we have it easy. Only ranchers would call this easy. Driving cattle is hot, dusty, demanding, and they'll be lucky to make a $50 profit per cow when they finally send them to market. Jeannie's daughter Hayley and son in law France help wrangle the herd. Her husband milford shuttles the horse trailers. They all left regular jobs and moved back to the ranch several years ago after Genie's brother who had been running the police died in an accident. It takes all of us to do it, it seems like. Jeannie was a librarian. So what is it about this place that makes you give up regular normal American jobs and come back here to do this really hard work? Well, first of all, it was home to me. And it was hard work for my parents and I know it was hard work for my grandparents and I just couldn't see letting it go. Labor of love, it's called. Yeah. Where's the emphasis? Labor or love? Love. Love might sustain the green river drift, but it was born in crisis. The winner of 1889 90 is really what started the drift. Clint gilchrist is in astorian who grew up in this valley and has written about that harsh winter. The vast majority of the cattle herds that were here because they weren't prepared for a bad winter. Nobody had prepared for a bad winter. White settlers were not prepared. Native tribes which the U.S. government drove off the land to make room for homesteaders knew that winters in the green river valley could be merciless. The shoshone Indians and the crew Indians were one of the dominant tribes in these areas. And they didn't win her here. They wintered over on the other side of the mountains where it was less elevation. After that brutal winter, ranchers realized they had to move their cattle out of the valley long enough to grow a crop of hay. So while the cattle are up in the uplands, you're able to grow, hey. And that feeds them all winter long. Right. And so that was the genesis of what we call the drift. The drift Albert somers says. Because when the first fall frost chills the mountains, the cows instinctively head for home. Just on their own, turn around and start coming back. Turn around and start. We opened gates, drift back, and they drift back. In the spring, we drive them in the fall they drift. When the drift began 125 years ago, there were no regulations, no subdivisions, just wide open range. Today, the 11 ranches drive their cattle to lands controlled by the U.S. forest service, the largest grazing allotment in the country, 127,000 acres of the bridger teton national forest. They pay the federal government 1.35 a month for every cow and her calf. 7. Right. Right on. How much each rancher will owe is tallied at a place called the counting gate. It's Jamie Burgess's job to read brands or ear tags and call out which cows belong to which ranch. Price. While his wife Rita adds up the totals. When the cows finally reach mountain pastures, they're handed off to range riders. Ring up. Like Brittany hesel time, whose job is to watch over them all summer. And you're up here by yourself? Yes. Just theme, my horses. Three dogs and a cat..

"And if you happen to not know what we're talking about here are few quick details gabrielle. Petito a twenty two year old white woman and her fiance. Brian laundry left new york back in july for what was supposed to be a four month. Long cross country trip now. Some things went down apparently during their trip. Because gabrielle's fiance returned to his florida home so low on september firs gabrielle was reported as missing by her family ten days later ultimately the fbi found gabrielle's remains in wyoming's bridger teton national forest earlier. This week a search for the fiancee. Who has now disappeared is still in progress. Yeah and there's been a lot of press focused on this story and the internet itself has pitched in with some social media sleuthing here too and while the situation is terribly tragic a number of advocates have pointed out that many other people particularly people of color who's missing persons cases. Don't get a focus on primetime cable news or what felt like wall to wall coverage from the new york times. Exactly here's lynette. Gray bull director of the nonprofit not our native daughters in an interview with. Msnbc's jillian reed putting a spotlight on indigenous missing persons. You know if you don't have blonde hair and blue eyes are story. Do not make it to the six o'clock news. We barely get a story into the paper. You know however. I just think everybody come into the table addressing the issue being accountable and making sure that when somebody goes nephew murdered in our community that it's equally prevent it and have a sense of urgency. So get in the late legendary journalist gwynne eiffel actually coined this term about twenty years ago missing white woman syndrome to describe the ways our culture and media specifically gets when the victim is a white woman but doesn't necessarily keep that same energy for folks from other communities. The fact of the matter is that we seem to care less when the person who goes missing is of color even though we as folks of color go missing at higher rates. Yeah into that point. Let's actually talk about some of what we know here right. So let's start with the missing indigenous folks. Because the rates are tragic specifically in wyoming where gabrielle's body was found seven hundred and ten indigenous. People went missing between two thousand. Eleven and two thousand twenty over. Half of them were women. This is according to a study done by the university of wyoming which found that while half of those missing persons were found within a week. Almost a quarter of them went missing for a month or longer comparatively only eleven percent of white people remain missing for that long the study which we can link to in our show notes also found that only eighteen percent of the indigenous women who were reported missing received media coverage. Wow yeah and so that's just wyoming. What about the us overall and do we have a sense of why this is the case so the us department of the interior said earlier this year that there were roughly fifteen hundred american indian and alaska native missing persons in the national crime information center database. This number though does not include instances that were not documented by authorities and considering study after study notes the ways folks of color are more often deemed the cause for or perpetrators of violence and crime or those studies that note the way certain authoritative figures are less likely to believe folks of color advocates say many more indigenous families are dealing with missing persons than the stats. Let on as for why. That's unfortunately hard to say. A two thousand eighteen a. P. story we can link to says that there hasn't been a government database tracking these cases. So it's hard to find a common thread but the article quotes one university of kansas professor. Who suggests that some of these people might have been the victims of sexual violence. This is so much of an issue though that the interior secretary deb holland announced in april the creation of a new missing and murdered unit within the bureau of indian affairs office to help put the quote full weight of the federal government into investigating these cases and hopefully that has positive results there. And there's also been over the last few years a lot of discourse about the rates of missing black people as well especially women girls. Yeah advocates lagged. Erica wilson co founder of the organization. Black and missing have called for the media law enforcement agencies and everyday people to be as concerned about missing black folks as they are with gabrielle. Petito and to such people whose families are searching for their loved ones right now are gilani day a twenty five year old illinois state university graduate student who went missing last month and daniel robinson a twenty four year old arizona. Geologists who went missing back in june in the show notes. We're gonna link to an npr story about both of them as well as black and mrs website which has resources for folks in search of their family. Members are gideon shifting gears to the pandemic yesterday president biden led a virtual summit on it in the midst of the ongoing meeting of the un general assembly and. He made this pledge. United states is buying another half billion doses of pfizer to donate to low and middle-income countries around the world. This is another half billion doses. That will all be shipped by this time next year and brings our total commitment to donate of donated vaccines to over one point one billion vaccines to be donated. We previewed that such an announcement could be on the way but gideon whitmore came out of this address. This so part of the plan to vaccinate seventy percent of the global population by next september although we should note here that this purchases just a tiny fraction of what. It's gonna take to actually do that but the point. That biden was really trying to drive home at the summit was that it was going to take a collective global effort to end the global pandemic. He also announced a new partnership with the eu on upping global vaccinations with the eu committing to donating around five hundred million doses itself to income countries. Plus there's some news about helping other countries make their own vaccines. Yeah this is always been a big part of the discussion so they're also funding commitments from the us for manufacturing facilities and then the eventual administration of shots specifically a partnership with india japan and australia. That biden said quote is on track to produce at least one billion vaccine doses in india to boost the global supply by the end of twenty twenty two now keeps saying twenty two week keep saying tweets because he is saying it and one of the questions that has really come up is what can be done now. Not actually in two thousand two. And that's one caveat of this new biden plan for those pfizer doses which was pretty frustrating to some activists so only three hundred million of the one point one billion promise doses overall are set to be shipped out this year so there are a lot more problems to solve in the immediate future. Time really is a factor here so according to the ap the world health organization said that only fifteen percent of promise donations vaccines from wealthier. Countries have actually been delivered thus far. That's disappointing One part of the vast disparities in vaccine access and vaccinations. Globally is the role of wealthier countries. But another is pharmaceutical companies. Who make them. So what's the update there. The white house reiterated support for waving intellectual property protections for cove in nineteen vaccines yesterday and basically underpinning of that argument in theory is give even more countries the opportunity to make vaccines instead of relying on just a few who can buy them. And there's this really interesting near time story that we can link to the dives and more on the pressure. That companies like madonna pfizer are facing so a group of drugmakers and vaccine manufacturers is reportedly getting ready to ask the by the administration to really pressure these companies a lot more aggressively for things like licenses to intellectual property and technology that's used in manufacturing vaccines so advisor only agreed to sell the doses at the us would donate overseas but not to actually license. The technology and then with madonna apparently both the administration and the world health organization have had trouble in talks with madonna and so one of the responses that we hear from executives of these companies. Is that the technology and the know how of it is so complex that it actually wouldn't be expedient to try to set it up in other parts of the world but again it is very much worth mentioning that there are enormous financial incentives for these companies here not just for the cove in nineteen vaccines but for other marna vaccines they have in development and finally there was some news about booster shots for people in the us yesterday. What are they telling us. Okay to other very quick things before we move on here. The fda did in fact authorize a pfizer biotech booster vaccine for people sixty five and older and those who are at risk of severe disease including because of where they might work advisors to the cdc are going to continue to meet today to basically decide on who is going to get this and win and then one other thing that you may or may not have seen a johnson. Johnson announced earlier this week that he's second dose of its vaccine that is given two months after the first was ninety four percent effective against infection. Any infection at all in trials tomorrow. We're.

Deb and jeff spencer about campground being closed because of the mess that people make the dispersed camping areas. And this is a good news story out of that because a group of concerned people who love to disperse capping our ears. They have banded together. They started kind of a funding movement to save a disperse campground. In the bridger teton national forest. It was a very popular cap gown and it had been used a whole lot last year. A whole lot this year Human waste was really starting to accumulate and as the forest service has been doing around the country. It looked like they were going to shut that down.

And they went to bed late friday They were found unresponsive and pronounced dead in their travel trailer on saturday and the cause of death was a common one that we hear several times a year and generator a generator. That was right next to their to their camper. And the fumes from that generator built up carbon monoxide inside. The trailer and these three young men lost their lives. It's uninvestigated police. Haven't done a final release of what the cause was. But that's certainly what they were exp- they were suspecting and for all of us it's a reminder of how deadly carbon monoxide is.
