Congressman Matt Gaetz Shares the Candidates He Endorses

"Enclosing here, what candidates in particular are you spending your time and energy and resources? I think you're going to be fine in your race to comfortably Republican district. But where are you spending your time energy and resources? What candidates do you like the best? And then I know you got to run for votes. Let me give you three quick ones. The America first warrior on the West Coast is Joe Kent, he beat Jamie Herrera butler in a primary, but faces a tough general. So if you can help out Joe Kent in Washington state up in the northeast, Caroline leavitt is running an inspirational campaign in New Hampshire and I've got to mention my Florida woman buddy on a paulina Luna, who is going to flip Charlie Crist seat and she's got a great connection to turning point. I know turning points was a point graduate. She went through the whole process, had a lot of fun together, did a lot of campus stuff, and now she's going to be a member of Congress, which I think will be our first member of Congress we could say from turning point to Congress. That'd be kind of fun, right? Definitely not the last. That's the beginning. And that's why that's why the regime wants to come after both of us. Matt, go vote, hopefully no, on whatever it is because it's probably garbage being proposed by Nancy Pelosi. So don't put too much thought into it. I think no across the board should be smart, but I don't know what you're voting for. Matt God bless you, congratulations, keep fighting.

The New Movie 'Elvis' Is an Oscars Shoo-In

"Kind of tell you guys, I saw the Elvis movie. Damn, was that a good movie? You know, the director baz luhrmann has a very stylized way of making movies. If you saw the famous one he did, I mean, you know, Romeo and Juliet, moulin rouge, Gatsby, he has a certain way of making movies, even though Australia, which wasn't my favorite kind of movie. It definitely has a certain look to it that you can't mistake. It's like, you know, when you hear a certain guitar player, you can tell if it's Aerosmith, you can tell if it's The Rolling Stones, YouTube, you can hear slash them all away, you can hear, you know, Keith Richards in my way. Same thing with bosler and you always know when you're watching one of his movies. But I'll tell you, Elvis, the movie just built and built and built. It kept getting quicker and quicker and quicker until not no spoilers here. Elvis develops a drug, a pill habit, and, you know, he starts to lose, lose it, and just an amazing, amazing portrayal by Austin butler, this guy was born to play Elvis role, music was great. They even like patched in like some rap ish music into Elvis songs or I can't explain it. They took the old, the music of down south, you know, the black music, the gospel songs and infused it with some contemporary singers from today, and it really sounded amazing. Austin butler's gorgeous. I don't think Elvis had eyes that blue, but the weird thing is the way Tom Hanks plays colonel Parker, you might find that odd 'cause he has this accent he used it. I always thought colonel Parker was like a southern gentleman kind of guy. You know, like, I just assumed he was that guy. Even though he did live down there, he had this Dutch accent apparently. And it was a Dutch accent that I've learned he used that also had the hottest speech impediment, so Tom Hanks really went out of his way with prosthetics you can't believe. You can't believe it's Tom Hanks. The accent, the prosthetics, the acting, there's no question he's going to be up for best actor. I've even put Austin butler up as well from the same movie. It's that good.

Can We Celebrate the Death of the RINOs? Rep. Matt Gaetz Weighs In

"We're celebrating the death of the rhino species in D.C., but they're not going to go away that quietly, are they? Well, we have seen a number of victories that together show us where the real enthusiasm is in the political right. You know, if Liz Cheney was the only person who voted for impeachment to be rejected by voters, we might view that as just Liz Cheney's complete betrayal of Wyoming, her unwillingness to ever talk about Wyoming, values the fact that she's actually from Northern Virginia, not Wyoming. You could point to those things, but you see Joe Kent defeat Jamie Herrera butler. You see Adam kinzinger quite literally just avoid the judgment of his voters by not seeking reelection. You see someone like Fred Upton certain to face defeat against a candidate that was more pro Trump choosing to forgo reelection. And so I think there's a pattern here that shows how narrow any path is or any constituency is for the reconstitution of the establishment.

Welcome to America first one on one. 7 two kind and it's always good to be with you. Thank you. All right, I'm gonna throw everyone for a loop right now because I'm talking about the story of the day, the story of the year, probably the story of the decade, but before we analyze that and some potential connections to less democratic systems around the world, you sent me a piece just a few moments ago that a little bit out of your Wheelhouse when I looked originally at the subject, but then I realized why it's important. So why, why did you send me something about Olivia Newton, John professor kango? Yeah, so I wrote a tribute to Olivia Newton-John for American spectator. And I know we're talking about Merrick Garland today and Salman Rashid and Olivia Newton-John. But only one of the three did I have a crush on when I was a 12 year old boy. And I saw you wasn't Merrick Garland or salmon rushdie. And I think that I was representative of a lot of young boys in America around the world. She's Australian, of course. But she was really a remarkable personality. Of course, she did the movie grease in 1978, which I saw at the pioneer drive in and butler Pennsylvania when I was a 12 year old. But she was really a remarkable lady, a remarkable voice, a very charming and happy, contended person. In fact, interesting, Seth, I got an email today. I won't out the guy, but he's an executive director of a prominent foundation, and he told me he said, you know, I read your piece on Olivia Newton-John. She was the kind of girl that every young boy wanted to marry. And it was really the Olivia Newton-John of the kind of strange. I mean, everyone had that crush. I had that crossroad of the same vintage, a very fine vintage, but she wasn't even American. How weird is Apple.

"The thing that I never forget about Miami, 'cause you talk about the line, right? And I guess we're at this point now where kids don't know about this, by the way, Spencer project you need to put a pin in. The January 1987 fiesta bowl, right? That's correct. Impossible to explain to people what a cultural flashpoint this was. Miami versus Penn State and is the whole, you know, a whole lot of stuff happening. You can go look it up. I can't get you into everything. But the most legendary thing about it was Miami gets off the plane and the team is in fatigues, right? 1986, they all get off the plane and fatigue. And it's all associated with like Jerome Brown. Michael Irvin Alonzo highsmith, Melvin bread and all those guys. But if you look at the clip, but when they got off the plane, the second or third dude office, they tested birdie. They're all kinds of clips in the U documentary where you just see Vinny Chester Bernie posted over these dudes in shades. He loved every minute of this. I don't think he was gold with them dudes nowhere, but he loved it. That is correct. And that is, you can get that kind of like, even if we take it out of the U, which I think is probably if we were to explain to somebody the prototypical example of Miami blending cultures very rapidly over the through sports, that would be one. The Miami Heat, this Miami Heat team. If you have ever seen Tyler hero and Jimmy Butler discussing swimming or the lack of ability thereof. That to me is an example of dudes who just found the right place to manage to mention a place where that kind of stuff can happen and it can happen very, very quickly.

Why We Should Value the Existance of God

"The biggest reason is if you believe God exists, but don't understand why that significant. Virtually. It's the same as atheism. It's useless. That is exactly right. And they don't. So that's why most people do believe in God, but it's pointless. They believe in it what I call a celestial butler, as you've heard me say so often. I love that. You know, take care of me, you know, I need the following, have a great day. What is this God want from you? Or why is murder not wrong if God isn't behind do not murder? Oh, boy is that true? That's the stuff that matters. Or as I open the introduction to my rational Bible, why did I honor my parents? Every single day of my life, even when I had hard times with them when I was younger. Because I believe God instructed me to honor your father and mother in the ten commandments.

It was Hollywood. And they brought, you know, Ronald Reagan campaigned on this idea of wanting to make America great again. That was the actual slogan of his presidential campaign. Isn't that funny? Make America great again. So I get up there and I was thinking my mind, this is going to be like the ponderosa from bonanza, grace, I know you don't know what I'm talking about. Sorry. It goes right over there. But folks Google it. And teach your children, grace, we're working on that. We're educating you. You're getting an education.

And I was thinking this palatial ranch and with I don't know, I wouldn't say servants, but ranch hands and maids and butlers and all that kind of stuff. So we get up there. And there was this sort of, I wouldn't say decrepit house, but it was really old. It was painted. It looked nice, but it wasn't anything glamorous. And you walk in and there's old furniture. It sparsely, you know, there's not a lot of furniture. There's a bed where this is where Reagan lived when he was back in California. There was a bed and your Reagan was the bed was small, and so they had to put like a nightstand at the end of the bed so Reagan's feet wouldn't dangle off the bed. My pillow didn't even exist. There was no my pillow there. And it was a very simple, it was a very straightforward ranch. There was folks, there was really not much to it. There was no glitz, no glamour. Very humble. Very humble abode. Very nice, clean. I mean, it was very, very pretty. I mean, the setting. And I was really struck by that.

"Almost like lines of poetry and even back then I'm sure seem very pretentious to a lot of people, but now it just doesn't seem like he's trying that hard. And he's almost trying harder now to just offend. And it's kind of ugly sometimes in some of his newer music. I wish that you know I fully support people being creative late into their careers. I think it's a wonderful, beautiful thing that if you can still be writing and performing, please do. But sometimes I'm just like, but the music you're coming up with now is just yeah. Can you just stop? Yeah, it might be one of those cases. But in his mind, he might think that this is the most brilliant work he's ever done. You never know. Yeah, yeah, and all the power to him, then, I guess, because still tons and tons of people are listening, but he's alienated a lot of people recently. Are we ready to get more into his? Let's do this. Well, great. Before I do, I want to say that I was afraid that the research that I was going to do today was going to kind of put me off of him entirely for a while. Because I know that he's been taking some really strong stances like anti Islamic stances and varying nationalistic politics. Yeah, I'll read you some quotes. And I've been trying to just, I thought that this was something that we could talk about to that would be really interesting is separating the artist from the music. And I'm sure you've had to do this. Oh yeah. Yeah, because some people are monsters. I'm not saying that Morrissey's a monster, but you can write beautiful music or incredible music with a lot of talent, but still be a really shitty person. Yes. And it has been some people it is a battle to listen to their music again in the same way. It to separate the human from the art can be quite difficult. But sometimes the songs are so impactful that you're just like, I can't let the song go, though. Yeah. I listened to the boner drag album a couple weeks ago, cranking it all the way, my partner, she was so patient with me. She just let me. She's like, okay, I get into these moods, I guess where all I want to listen to is Morrissey..

"Noticing that this homesickness was kind of like a layer of how sick they were. He found this correlation between how easily they would heal compared to how much or how hard it was for them to heal compared to how much that they were going through mentally with homesickness. And that kind of makes sense if you're longing for your home, you feel like you'll never get back. It's like having that sense that will to live kind of being just drained from you if you're just so far from your homeland from your family. It makes sense that that would be a layer of your sickness of how well you heal. So yeah. I thought that was really interesting. What was interesting to me with this definition is I've never looked at that word as a negative connotation to it. Do you know what I mean? I've always thought it was yes, there was the longing there. But I feel like it was a longing for a time that might have been better in your life, a time that influenced you the most, the time that you have fond memories of nostalgia is interesting, I think, too, and the fact that you ever think about the past and our senses as humans, it's amazing what touches off memories like sense. Smelling something. Yeah. Yeah. That has been the most fascinating to me because if you smelled like a perfume that you wore and like the late 80s, it just takes you right back there. Song lyrics can do that. It's just amazing how the human brain works. But I'd like to think that the word nostalgia now doesn't have such a negative connotation and I don't really know if it would be as directed about mental health as it would have been that. Well, depending on how much time you have, I'm free for hours, but I'd love to pick that apart because it's something that I think about quite a bit. And you've seen what's happened in my country and in recent years in the past half a decade, there's this rising kind of sense of nationalism and. A certain demographic feeling like their world is being taken away from them as they see changes in society. And they're fighting back, you know, like there was an insurrection at the capitol building and past January. And a lot of those people are trying to hold on to.

"Yeah. That is amazing. You must have done really well in school with English. I don't remember if I was like a star student in English. I think my the one class that I remember doing really well and kind of being like the teacher's pet was earth science. But I think it's because the teacher and I connected. He was in like the gothic punk bands back in the 80s and I was in punk bands when I was a teenager, so like we connected over that. Nice. But yeah. Are you a musician yourself? Yes. I'm a singer, yes. And how long have you been playing for singing? Well, I put my first music together, actually, it's probably around the age of ten, 11, 12. It was 12 was the first time I was in a recording studio. Actually, the theme of don't nostalgia is my song that I recorded when I was 12. So it's pretty cool. Yeah, yeah, yeah. Maybe at the end of this episode, I'll let the whole thing play. That's a great idea. I'd love to hear. They haven't done that. Yeah, okay, sure. I'll do that. But I was in a hard rock band for over ten to 12 years, maybe longer. Wow. What's the name of the band? 6 string loaded, disbanded, probably about three years ago. It was probably about a year before the pandemic. Okay. Yeah. We had an amazing time together. We did a lot of great songs. Got to see some cool places and have good shows. It was quite the experience, so. That's fine. Then I got in the podcasting. Yeah. Not as social. Well, in certain ways, I guess you're interviewing all sorts of people, but it's been hard over the Internet to have that same kind of connection. Do you miss being on stage that kind of just raw energy and, you know? Yes. Yeah, I do. It's definitely missed, especially when we spent the last year and a half by just in isolation. A lot of things were missed. That's definitely one of them. But I'm happy now. I don't know how are things going for you now. Are you, are you much of a social going out type of person? No. And I don't know if you have friends who were saying this throughout the pandemic. I even said it myself, you know, hey, I'm an introvert, so this is perfect for me. But as time passed, I realized, you know, that the danger of being an introvert going through something like this is that you can just completely disappear. And I think there can be negative mental health effects of that. And that's exactly what I did. I completely disappeared. I sold my house in the middle of the pandemic in Arizona, which was like my last big attempt to be involved in an arts and music scene. And that disappeared during the pandemic, so I just sold my house and I bought a house in the middle of nowhere in Kansas just because property is incredibly cheap here. And I've just spent focusing on fixing up this house planning to sell it eventually that's amazing. So now you're Midwest fellow. Yeah. Yeah..

I've been on vacation and but I have a whole list of ideas to cover. And it's been individual words like I think I did crow at some point and it's given me an opportunity to trace trace back the roots of words, but also just find little nuggets of interesting history around a word. I went into in the episode about crow, I went into the crow Indians, the crowd Native American tribe. And why they were called that and how it was like a bastardization of an existing word, if I remember correctly, but then I was able to talk about the tribe a little bit and recent recent efforts within the tribe to try to keep the language alive. So it's been a great opportunity to just kind of do some deep dives on an individual words and pluck out little interesting nuggets I did and then I've been doing phrases too, so I did one on the phrase ships passing in the night and it comes from a Henry wadsworth longfellow poem. And I was able to figure out that his family has a really long queer history that dates back since like the days of the 1800s. And there's just like generations of openly queer folks within his family and it's all documented and there's like a house you can visit in New England. I wouldn't have known anything about that if I just wasn't curious about where did that phrase come from ships passing in the night? Yeah, yeah. And it's an off shoot. This podcast is an offshoot of a podcast that I've been doing for like a year and a half called the English Sessions, which is a podcast for English learners. So yeah, that's how it started. I started on the English Sessions thinking, I should make some content for more advanced students. But then I realized this is really more for advanced students and native English speakers. So I decided to make it its own podcast. But every episode still has an audio transcript. So if a learner is listening to it, they can still read along if they can't understand exactly what I'm saying. That's brilliant..

"So if I were to focus on something, I'm going to be cool to talk about all the music in the 90s that helped raise me. You know? And just also focus on people that nobody may have remembered. Yeah. Yeah, yeah. As well as the people who are the heavy hitters. I'm glad that you wanted to talk about Morrissey because you said that you weren't very familiar with Morrissey. Especially as an icon of the 90s popular media well, what I know about Morrissey is yes, very limited. But I do know that he's no flash in the pan artist. He is probably quite legendary. Yeah. Because I know he has a legion of fans. I was thinking about that. I've never spoken to a Brit who has not who doesn't know who Morrissey is. But I feel like I've definitely talked to Americans who were either like who's that? Or I don't really know any of his music or like where are you from? I am, I grew up in upstate New York. Okay. So and you're up in Canada, right? That's right, Western Canada. Okay. Are you in British Columbia or Alberta? Alberta. That's right. I knew that. Yeah. So, yeah, Morrissey was pretty important to me in my teenage years. But before that, I hadn't really heard of morsey either. So I was born. I was born in 88 and I've been reflecting on nostalgia all day today, but I was thinking like, he was definitely an icon of the 90s. I was doing some research. The only time he was nominated for a Grammy was in the 90s. I think for his album, your arsenal, which was 93, but I was obviously way too young for that period of Morrissey. But it is what I started exploring once I got into more. So like, his late 80s, early 90s stuff, was like monumental to me as a teenager. Last time I find is when you're first listening to the artist when you first discover them in general, if you're that interested in the music, most you will dig into the back catalog. Yeah. You don't really see people just start halfway through their career and ignore the white got them there. Definitely. Definitely. And you don't look much older if you're at older at all than I am. So is that a lot of your 90s nostalgia too kind of like reflecting back on music that came out even before you were listening to it? Is there that kind of layer to your nostalgia? Mine nostalgia is primarily based on when I got to choose music for myself at what age I got to do that. That's where most of the nostalgia lies. I am 42 years old. So I was born in 1971. Well, you look definitely look young. Well, thanks. Yeah, so that's where it's kind of centered for me because it wasn't until the late 80s and until I was picking my own music making my own choices that way. That makes sense. Okay. Hence the Tiffany album on the wall. That was the first record that I chose for myself..

Before the break, we mentioned Jean Jacques Rousseau, the Swiss philosopher who had an influence on those involved in the French Revolution, as well as an influence on the enlightenment movement. He died in 1778, which, if you were paying attention during the first half of the show, if your Jean jacket wasn't too tight, you will then know that this death predates the French Revolution. Now is the time to mention a man who did live through the revolution, a man named Pierre gaspard, chau met, who was president of the Paris commune during the years of the reign of terror. The Paris commune within this period of history in France refers to the government in power from 1789 to 1795. It is believed that in 1793, gave a speech linking this phrase, eat the rich to the Swiss philosopher, Rousseau. This is, according to one historian who published a ten volume history of the French Revolution decades later in the 1820s. Here it goes, according to this historian, shall met most likely in an effort to energize the crowd during his speech and fuel the flames of the revolution, uttered the words, quote, when the people shall have no more to eat, they will eat the rich. Attributing this phrase to the dead philosopher Rousseau. Many believe this was misattributed to Rousseau, there is no evidence that could link these words back to him. As he never wrote them down himself in any of his publications or anything ever found in his records. Therefore, these words can best be attributed to Adolf chair. The 19th century historian who included the information about shamet's speech in one of his volumes, chronicling the French, revolution. These volumes were written in the 1820s. So there you have it. All these years later, we are still using these words as a rallying cry to address inequality and injustice. When the people have no more to eat, they will eat the rich. A lot of the food insecurity we see in many places is fueled more by political reasons than by anything else. No wonder this phrase is popping up everywhere right now. I'd like to think we've come a long way as a species, since the bloody days of the French Revolution, I'm keeping my fingers crossed that our revolution will come from grassroots political movements and other nonviolent means of dismantling oppressive systems of power and control. What are your thoughts right into the podcast? Get the word podcast at Gmail dot com. You can also leave a message on the website, inglis sessions with Mike dot com. Leave a message and I'll play it on the podcast. I'd like to invite all of you into my fact cabinet. A repository for items I've been collecting over the years that always seem to pertain to the topics of these episodes. Here is one of those items right over here. It's an oxygen tank that I plan to donate to my local hospital. It's only a few liters, but I hope it helps. We've been seeing news about oxygen's shortages throughout the entirety of this COVID pandemic, by the way, not just in recent months. We are, of course, talking about liquid oxygen, the application of which greatly benefits those in need who are having trouble breathing, as well as those using it for industrial purposes, including in the gas submarine and aerospace industries. Remember when I told you that one rocket for one SpaceX launch uses 40,000 gallons of liquid oxygen? Let's put that into perspective. I found some numbers for other applications. For example, this one source I found says that about 4000 gallons, so just about 10% of the amount used by one of SpaceX's rockets is issued by the U.S. Air Force at one particular airfield per month. To help air crews breathe at high altitude. One month's supply of liquid oxygen used at a U.S. Air Force airfield is 10% the amount of one single space X rocket launch. The World Health Organization has come out with a report during the COVID-19 pandemic stating that COVID-19 patients requiring hospitalization require an average of 20 liters of oxygen per minute. That's a bit over 5 U.S. gallons per minute. 5.3 roughly. The 400,000 gallons of liquid oxygen used for one SpaceX rocket is therefore roughly 7500 57 minutes or close to 126 hours worth of oxygen. If this oxygen were being used to help COVID-19 patients to breathe. However, conversions and anything related to math is not my area of expertise. Please write into the podcast if you have a better estimation of just how far 40,000 gallons of liquid oxygen would go if used at a hospital to help people to stay alive. Ah, here's a copy of my local newspaper from just three days ago. The main headline is about the historic SpaceX launch that took place this week. This week marked the historic event of the first orbital space flight with only private citizens aboard. A major step in space tourism. A goal far from attainable for the vast majority of the people even privileged enough to participate in tourism. The event has gained mostly positive attention from the media, partly because the billionaire on board, Jared isaacman, has pledged to donate a $100 million out of his own pocket to the saint Jude children's research hospital in Memphis, Tennessee. It takes about $1 billion to operate saint Jude per year. Meanwhile, in recent weeks, the city of Orlando, located just 50 miles west of the launch of the SpaceX rocket this week has been encouraging all of its residents to limit water use because the liquid oxygen used for treating the water supply needs to be diverted to hospitals to treat COVID-19 patients. NASA has delayed its September launch due to the surge of COVID-19 patients and their need for liquid oxygen. What about you? Have you been told to limit your water usage during this pandemic while your country's billionaires enjoy space tourism? Right in and tell me more. Get the word podcast at Gmail dot com.

"Mike here. If you haven't heard about anchor, it's the easiest way to make a podcast. Let me explain. It's free.

Before the break, I mentioned a term I like to use word void. When a word or phrase enters a language because it fills in a gap where there was no word before. A specific meaning that is at least slightly different compared to similar, already existing words, I mentioned deja vu earlier, I can't think of another term in English that describes this phenomenon. It fills a word void in my opinion. I mentioned deja vu earlier, I can't think of another term in English that describes this phenomenon. It fills a word void in my opinion. What about Bon voyage? Let's think of other things we can say when saying goodbye to a friend who is about to leave on a trip, you can say have a safe trip, safe travels, godspeed. Have a nice trip, see you in the fall. One of my favorites on the playground as a kid. Is there something unique about Bon voyage? Perhaps it is the perfect thing to say when seeing someone off at the docks. About to board a ship or boat. Because of its related English word voyage. Which obviously has a Latin root as well and is defined as such in English. A long journey involving travel by sea or in space. However, I don't know about you, but when I hear voyage, I think of swashbuckling adventures long, long ago. It sounds rather dramatic and literary. I don't think I'd ever sincerely describe my trips as voyages. Something about Bon voyage seems to imply that it's quite a journey ahead. Perhaps if it's not by boat, then it's at least overseas. If my friend tells me they're heading to Missouri from a spot here in Kansas, two neighboring states here in the U.S., I wouldn't tell my friend Bon voyage. So it really does have its place. The French two English translation of good journey is certainly more fitting than an attempt to try to translate it as good voyage as voyage has been shaped over time to have a more specific meaning in English than just a trip or journey. However, it still is more appropriately used when a trip on a grand scale is about to take place. What are your thoughts? Right into the podcast, get the word podcast at Gmail dot com. That's get the word podcast at Gmail dot com. Here's my beloved copy of aesop's fables. A book with illustrations from my childhood that I treasure fondly. Aesop's fables often involved personified animals as the main characters of each fable, which makes the story perfect for children's picture books. Many of you probably already know that, but I have some lesser known facts to share about aesop. First, as I mentioned before, evidence suggests that he was a slave in ancient Greece. More specifically a phrygian slave. Phrygia was a kingdom in the west central part of Anatolia. In what is now turkey. The story goes that esop also had physical deformities, and perhaps even a speech impediment. A bust of aesop is now housed within a collection at the villa Albany in Rome. If you glance at this bust, it is obvious that he suffered from some type of physical deformity. It's also suggested by what has been written about esop, that he perhaps stuttered as well. It's an interesting potential detail of his life to ponder, considering the fact that he was a storyteller. Another interesting fact about aesop, that seems likely to have happened, he was murdered. It's not entirely clear why he was murdered, but it appears that he was thrown off a cliff following a visit to the religious sanctuary of Delphi. Where, story goes, his clever tales and sharp wit wasn't received very well by the local priestess. He was sentenced to death for blasphemy. A sad ending to the life of a man who, according to some scholars, may not have even been the one coming up with, all the fables that are now immutably attached to his name. Certain Sumerian proverbs that predate the life of esop seem to have similar structures and storylines. However, most scholars do seem to agree that there was a man named esop and several ancient texts mention a man by that name, described as a storyteller. I have an announcement to make.

"You remember that sound? Yeah, you do. The 1990s, it was fun. Lots of fun music good times. Bookended by pop bands. And right in the middle, we got a little grungy. So many artists came and went and left us wondering, what are they doing now? We know what marky Mark then ended up doing, but what about the rest of the funky bunch? Alana's horror set had a pop career before she made it big with jagged little pill. The KLF and EDM band from England got Tammy oint to sing on one of their tombs. All kinds of crazy stuff happen and we're gonna talk to you about it with interviews with some of the biggest stars of the 90s on dope nostalgia, the podcast. I'm Naomi carmack and I'm your host, check us out on stitcher, Spotify. I choose anywhere you get your podcasts and look us up on the Internet at dope nostalgia dot com. Before the break, I promised that we'd talk a little bit about the dangers that can come from taking homeopathic medicine. The first nugget of information speaks specifically to laws here in the United States. However, there may be a similar situation happening around the regulation of these products in your country as well. It may be worth looking into. The danger here in the United States is that there is no regulation of these products labeled as homeopathic. The FDA, Food and Drug Administration here in the United States, has not approved any products labeled as homeopathic. Therefore, every product that is being marketed in the U.S. as homeopathic has not gone through FDA evaluations for safety and effectiveness. So you may be saying Mike, what's the issue? How is there any danger if these pills are ultimately just sugar pills? Well, the problem at least here in the United States is that since it's not regulated very much at all, that certain products from manufacturers of homeopathic medicine may not be actually highly diluted. Some of these products being sold have been found to contain measurable amounts of the active ingredients, which are sometimes ingredients like arsenic and belladonna, as I mentioned before. And in the words of the FDA could therefore cause significant patient harm. Check out the show notes of today's episode for a link to the FDA page that highlights about a dozen or so examples of this kind of trickery happening due to lax regulations of homeopathic medicine. This other PSA of mine goes out to anyone who may be taking advice from homeopathic doctors at this moment during a pandemic. To quote the NIH, there is, quote, no evidence to support homeopathic immunizations. That's right. Homeopathic immunizations. Some homeopathic products are being promoted as substitutes for conventional immunizations. The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is telling us there is no credible scientific evidence to support these claims. For more info visit vaccines dot gov and feel free to reach out to the podcast. We can look at your sources together and decide if they are fact based. Speaking of facts, let's open up the fact cabinet and take a peek inside. And also speaking of fact checkers, shout out to Chris Sawyer for pointing out my error of spelling peak as PEA K instead of P EK. I truly do love corrections and fact checkers and highly encourage all of you to be vigilant people. It's more important than ever. Chris DJs for one of the best community supported radio stations in the country. Kbr P shout out to Chris and the folks over at kbr kbr radio dot com. That brings me to my first fact, actually. According to the Oxford English corpus, the mistake between PEA K and P EK is so common that almost a third of citations for the expression a sneak peek are for the incorrect spelling PEA. It always feels good to make excuses, doesn't it? Here's my piece of the Berlin Wall. The concrete barrier that divided east and West Berlin from 1961 to 1989. I know many people have chunks of the wall as souvenirs. Ain't nothing special, right? Well, fewer people have what I have, you see, my pieces of the Berlin Wall are actually just memories. Nope, I'm not just talking about pictures. I'm talking about a little bottle of Berlin Wall homeopathic pellets from the UK based, ainsworth's homeopathic pharmacy. This pharmacy, which very proudly states on the website is the official homeopathic supplier to the royal family, has released little bottles of pellets they claim is made from ground up pieces of the concrete from the Berlin Wall. Some believers have said that the Berlin Wall pills are effective and, quote, cases where traumatic incidents from the past have been walled off. And have also been touted to be good for boosting relationships and breaking down emotional barriers. That's all I have in the fact cabinet this week.

"Street for Broadway, the original cast featured Judith Evelyn as the female lead and Vincent Price as the main despicable male lead of the story. I personally am a big fan of Vincent Price and would have given my right arm to have seen this original cast perform back in 1941. Where's a time machine when you need one? Patients, Mike, they're coming. Just give it time. The film adaptations came early. There would end up being a British film version released in 1940 entitled gaslight. And then the inarguably more enduring, American version, also called gaslight, released just four years after the British version. This 1944 film stars the incomparable Ingrid Bergman and was directed by George cukor. It also features a great performance by Joseph cotton, as the detective who finally figures out what is happening to Bergman's character. And the appearance of a very young Angela Lansbury, in her film debut. Who, by the way, was nominated for an Oscar for her performance. Pretty impressive for a film debut performance at the age of 19. Having seen this great film a few times myself, but having only read the synopsis of the play version, it does seem to follow more or less the same storyline. However, in the 1944 film, the upstairs is an attic space. Not its own separate apartment. So there you have it. The play and the films popularized this manipulation tactic, but of course the use of this manipulation tactic far predates the emergence of the term used to describe it. Merriam Webster gives the year of 1956 as the year in which we would see this term pop up as a verb. After the break we'll look at some examples of gas lighting beyond the confines of a romantic partnership. And we'll open up the fact cabinet. Don't go away. Hey, Mike here..

"Will no longer stalk through the land unmolested. This is most assuredly in reference to gumshoe Bill stone. U.S. senator from Missouri serving in office from the years 1903 to 1918. A politician who seems to have gotten the nickname gumshoe from his hands on role in investigating criminal cases. Bill stone was a good gumshoe, or detective. However, in subsequent use in reference to gumshoe politicians, it isn't as clear whether this descriptor describes a politician who is good at. Detective work, or if it describes a politician whose political methods mirror those of mister gumshoe Bill stone. This medical journal would not be the only source to reference gumshoe politics. Lafollette weekly magazine dated June 17th, 1911, described stone as Missouri's gumshoe statesman. In an article that seems to describe stone as the type of politician who likes to quote hide the shells, I'll explain. This magazine, as well as a New York Times article from the same decade, several years later in 1917, both mentioned a very quotable quote from one of stone's political associates summing up stone's methods. Quote, we both suck eggs, but stone hides the shells. I'd like to bring back the term gumshoe politician to describe those politicians who hide the shells. That's pretty great in my opinion. Past the turn of the century, though, it seems that gumshoe started to refer more and more to detectives and detective work specifically. However, perhaps you've been using the word to refer to a thief or a pedestrian or to describe a politician who sucks eggs, but hides the shells. Right into the podcast to tell us about your less common uses of gumshoe. In case you were all wondering the peak and popularity in print for gumshoe gum, hyphens, SHO, E and gumshoe two separate words together appears to be in the 19 teens. Using gumshoe as all one word was also pretty popular in the first couple of decades of the 20th century, and then we see a ship..

"Here, butler. Double digits, baby. Calm down. I'm just excited to talk about our whole new slate of films this upcoming season. We've got a Shakespearean adaptation set in the 70s and the world of fast food with Scotland PA. We're also taking on two sequels to highly popular films in U.S. Marshals and 2010 the year we make contact, but I know you're more excited about our third annual forgotten horror. It's my favorite time of the year, recording October episodes in the dog days of August. We're gone cinema. Part of the forgotten entertainment family. It's Mike. I was just gabbing recently about how I should probably start covering words and phrases that are trending right now in popular media. What a great way to get the word out about get the word. I thought to myself, people are already hearing a word or phrase being used all the time right now, so they will be more interested in learning about the origin and history of that word or phrase. Specifically. A great idea indeed. It would be a great thing to do. Sure. Instead, I'm going to talk about a word that I never really hear anybody say anymore. Gumshoe. Just as popular today as saying moving picture for a movie or putting a hyphen between the words to and morrow. So in other words, I'm a pretty hep cat down with the latest jive talk. Gumshoe does refer to a shoe. At least at first it did. A shoe with a gum or rubber sole. However, the definition of gumshoe we have today in the dictionary refers to a detective. Typically, a private eye, a dick. So let's start with the shoe, and then work our way up to the connection with detectives. First, let's figure out why we first started seeing the word gum Shu, pop up in the language. It appears that the terms gum shoe and rubber shoe, both pop up in use in the mid 19th century..

"butler" Discussed on Get the Word! with Mike Butler

"Comics still runs every week in the Sunday post. The bruins have a cottage up in the hills as a holiday home that they refer to as a button bent. A one source online, a worldwide word dot org, boldly claimed that the survival of this term the old button Ben can be placed squarely on this long running comic strip in the Sunday post. Here's an item from the fact cabinet, which is not too exciting, but will serve me well. It's a plug adapter to convert a U.S. plug into a UK plug to fit in UK outlets. You see my partner and I are headed to Scotland in November to track down her family heritage. Shout out to the McNeil clan of the isle of Barra, reach out to the podcast if you have any suggestions or tips for our trip through Ireland and Scotland. Anyway, have you ever wondered why we don't just have a standard voltage around the world? For example, the standard outlet in the U.S. delivers one ten to one 20 volts. But a good chunk of the rest of the world, including the UK, has a two 20 to 40 Volt system. You see the U.S. was ahead of the game and putting electricity to practical use back in the day. In the early days of electricity in the U.S., the lower voltage seemed like the most practical for electric lights. As higher voltages were burning out, lightbulbs quickly. Therefore, hundreds of power plants in the USA in the early days of electricity adopted one ten one 20 volts, as the standard. As time passed in other parts of the world, started to become just as connected as the U.S. and an electric grid. Engineers started figuring out how to make 220 volts, bulbs, that wouldn't burn out so quickly. Also, a two 20 Volt system is going to be more efficient. A higher voltage leads to a lower level of current required to produce the same amount of power, as one ten. The U.S. has stuck with the one ten one 20 Volt system over the years, though. Partly because we had so much money and infrastructure already invested in a one 21 ten Volt system. But since many other parts of the world didn't have so much time and energy invested in a one 21 ten system, they decided to just go ahead with or update to two 20 or two 40 Volt system. And many homes throughout the U.S. though, to this day, you can find one or two 20 outlets to power larger devices like dryers and electric stoves. That's all for today's episode.
