It's either gatorade or miller lite right. Those are the two choices. When when you're doing the marathons yeah pretty much It's rare that. I drink while i'm running. I didn't say that but but you should. I've seen it. i actually. Maybe i should say. Never i am maybe no. I have a friend that Who ran boston a couple of years ago. And she said yeah about mile sixteen she said screw it and somebody offered on the side of the road. She shock on the beer and get promoted the unicorn of a human being right. No no it's more common than you think. I saw iran the columbus marathon ohio four years ago and i saw guy in a borat onesie with a beer bong a case of beer. I mean he's obviously bringing like you see that his best but he wasn't he wasn't running he was just on the side and i saw him three times only at one point. I was walking. Because i cramped up and i passed them. I said odd dude you. You're really you're still doing this. He said i've had to refill twice. I've i've everyone's been doing this. I said oh my god that's amazing so no it's not uncommon at all. It's really. I mean it's wild but no which doing columbus it's what you doing columbus me. I would never even get the running part. So fry right. That's a whole nother are unspoken rule. Although we've broken it many times recently with my training group is anything over thirteen miles you drink. And so i've i've had. I've had alcoholic beverages in a metro park at eight. Am because we finish some long. Let's because you want an ungodly hour in the morning. Well yeah because you're cannot. Do you know it takes away from the day. I don't want to interrupt my day. Is the day they drunk. You know he's got no. It's never it's never. But you know if i can if i can have twenty five thousand steps before eight. Am i go home and we still do errands and take a walk with family. I mean that's that's just the start of the day. This is how it works. Yeah everyone's different anyway. Danielle what are you drinking. I was drinking water. And i'm walking around manhattan today. I'm not a huge drinker. I mean i. I do drink every once in a while but i hate beer. I never enjoyed it. Not once not ever One time i was climbing Here on occasion in the national park on the island. We have a lot of climbing routes. And i've halfway up a climb and someone handed me a beer in paper bag and a donut. And i and i had a little bit of both and now was the last time i drink beer and almost enjoyed it because of everything else. That was happening a beer after us. A good climber hike is a wonderful thing but still of as literally going like cooking style. Like oh as. I'm halfway this plan. But i i drink a lot of some wine My partner owns a restaurant in. Does all the wine in his pretty entwined i know nothing about. It is looking to say. Which one am i gonna like. And then she points and i drink. Hey that works. It's useless on air. The she keeps it. Simple for me. mostly water. I drink a lotta water. And that's not just because i'm trying to be like self care i wrote it. Think about it like a lot of water. it's really good to stay hydrated and that lubricates your joints waters. Oh arrival fantastic. Well so with that sad So danielle were kenna folks.

"You know whatever you just like go meet up throw a show together and then you're meeting these stalwarts of the craft and we're in jeff shop. It's like late at night the night that we landed and barely knew him. Any showing is the shop. I sit down one of his rocking chairs to her tackling of like all great like. Oh my god. I couldn't contain him just like this. He's beautiful but like it's like and i just started cackling and then i looked at him and he was giving me a look. Like i don't know you well enough to know what that means. And he was like that's great response and who are gonna go way better than i thought. It was three and a half seconds ago. it's just you know you can meet somebody there like you get kind of response and i didn't realize coming out with knee where it's like. It's involuntary translated. He built something where it translated. I'd never a barely knew. I hadn't talked to him. Just it just came out whereas this this is so good. Work is absolutely amazing. I took a class with him and the way his brain works. I don't fully appreciate and the fluted bowl engine. The chris pine inspired bowl engine that he's been With incredible also just like a dour a great guy. He really was nighttime with him. I haven't seen him since. That adjusts exactly exactly well. All i have to say as if i had one of your bowls not sure i would I would probably display it. Upside down is upside down. I'm not sure. I have been tempted. And i was like doing this like you'd have to turn them over and i'm like that's precisely why i'm doing it. I laugh when i was like what am i really need to. Just put it back down silly me. Yeah and i'm so glad you're doing the wall art stuff too because That that kind of brings that into perspective. There answer me. Some logistics nightmare is not so good without hanging. It's like a wheel house. I'm not familiar with soap. Anyone wants to write to me about that. I would say with a very simple aluminum french. Clean leave allie them. You mean like z. Make a simple square mortis in the back. And then they're they're very strong. You can knock them off. But it's pretty pretty rock rock. Solid people are really intimidated by. Oh that's a people don't buy houses because they're afraid to paint finish and the colors wrong so i can't go by what people are free and i would assume you shouldn't either. That would be my position. I just hang it like. I do like heavy duty. Coated wire the hooks in the back or thirty pounds more ways. That would definitely do it. And i'm assuming the putting the thing in the wall people are afraid of. Oh yeah. I mean it's all of it. Yeah you know. How do you have a router question. Do i don't know where it is. You could put a keyhole. You could put a keyhole in the back of it and just just a screw them. We the trick. Didn't they just have to put us. Roy moore nail and it gets tricky is like texture and thickness. Yeah yeah it depends on how thin those are at the back but it looks like he got enough room from but of course. I'm just looking at just us. Three v. h. tape and stick to the war -actly velcro bill crozier friends thickness. I worked with the woman that did Like Gourd carving so basically these gorgeous be kind of like half moons and she would mount them in like shadow boxes shadow box. I mean it's a it's an interesting thing. She peruvian gore yada yada yada. You made all business out of themselves into national parks. She doesn't work for us anymore. She made legitimate a business. It's pretty cool And i have two of them. Because i was helping her out making shadow boxes at some point it's But it was that. Like i forget how she attached them directly but it was. It was largely. I mean it was picture hanging at some point. I mean it's it's the same style no matter what you do z. Clips picture wire. I mean there's there's reasonable ways of hang in the stuff up on the wall. It's just how it plays with a visual aesthetic. You know and and even made like the like a little kit of being like. Here's how to knit together. Here's what you wanna do. Everything is included. You know like. I don't know other things i can like push the last time you bought something that that goes into a wall. Let it be anything you know. The the varying detail of instructions inclusions. You know nothing. It's hard to make it work for everybody. It really is. It's so true. And i just hope that eventually a i'll build up sort of clientele that are willing if they're willing to take risks on what i'm making them. I'm you know what's more than likely. They're willing to take a risk on on putting something up. I would think or or ops are willing to get somebody to do it for them. If they're not comfortable bench into exactly exactly that's my hope anyway Or maybe a wooden peg that goes through the piece into the wall. Now anyone can. I do that. Yeah i mean in reality. I mean anything that can just hold the darn thing up intention all however that works out. There's symbols doing it to me. It's like too limiting because unlike on us be flat on the back in like i. It's hard for me to like here. Okay a lot of this is just academic people see. There's a million ways they could hanging on a wall. But here's what you need to do is come up with a really slick slow profile way to hang it on a wall and then carve the back also like your like your bowls have those long feet in two or three of them. Contact the wall so they basically held off the wall. It's almost like i thought about doing on the bottoms. Like if you're hanging out like a picture frame and it had a slight tilt to it instead of playing those little pads doing exactly what you talked about. Like the feet and then i just. Here's the brilliant story. I just didn't we had. We had these like Metal leaf things that we hung on the wall for a while. And we we tied just hemp string in a loop and hung it on a screw you know it was held behind it so you never saw what was holding it. You can have some way of doing that. Don't use this. I have this really small. Well it's kind of similar to that. It's not quite exactly that on smaller ones. But this is where i think my mind like over complicates things because i try to. I try to anticipate all the things that could go wrong. Or would make you know you're literally trying to solidify form and function and in this case because it has that utility and you want it to be solid on wall. There is a definite function. The our concerns. I do not want that email where it says like this my wall. I rather take two years to figure out a really good well. You just have to make very reasonably priced installation fee. And then just drive across country and travel accommodations. Yeah that's a fly out there and you can deliver the ball hanging on the wall and you just tell them you touch it touch it. There's no warranty anymore. But that that's really the that's the out for once this is done if it falls into your fault not mine. Yeah know. I mean there's always a five feet or five minutes whichever comes first. They can't see it from my house..

"It wasn't my leg it it. It resolved itself. I can't viz visually or or or visit. Remember what i went through at this point and this was a couple of years ago. But i remember it being thing and but i i am i alone him in tune to my body. I know what i'm doing. And so it's it's there can be different ways of dealing that for different people but absolutely i mean paying attention always staying hydrated and flexible is super beneficial. You gotta you gotta gotta pay attention to what you're doing and like you said if you know something's gonna happen you will throw something out of whack guard against it. The best you can so that doesn't become a prohibitive thing and the thing is that it only builds body awareness and currently makes you a better carver like use your body in. Sometimes you go to stretching your. I didn't even realize that you're able. You're better able to find the source of what that was because if you're keeping up with that then you're like what did i do in between now and when i started last i should probably stop that or change it or modify And so it's just it's just super important like it's one of those things that people i got it. I got it and then we don't do it and that's collected because i'm part of that too so if anything it's like it was it's almost like when people post things on instagram. So do them. it's like well. I brought it in a book so that you know i'll catch hell for people to do that and i'll be like sorry i can't right right back is a will. That's fantastic. Also tell us about some said so in the book you have project bowls For the I guess the reader and New greenwood worker to go through. So how many bowls are in the book. There are three main shapes. Okay i do like a what's called a pip up so when you split a log and hats it would be the middle. Section is the pissed facing and that creates the flat of a top of bull. Also there's a bark up orientations. That's just the bar side would be upending hollow into that so it kind of had it takes on the natural shape of the outside of the log as the top of the bowl and then a round bowl which is also a up orientation But there's just a few little things that are a little bit different and so it is like an accumulative Process in how. I present it where a lot of things are repeated. But it's for the sake of being like okay. Well how does it How does it apply to each. You know each bowl or section of a bowl. And i liked that repetition. Because sometimes i find like can i use that thing. You just taught me over here though or you know in. It's also helps things to stick in. It allows people to sort of skip around if they wanted to depending on their skill level or were they felt comfortable where they could start on the third bowl project that they wanted to In in some respects And then for each of those shapes. I talk about how that could be modified either leaper bowl what that would look like. And what that when. Tail or a different kind of shape within the it. Sounds like you've described the different orientations of the log when you're when you're making the bowl so as someone's experience and Curiosity takes them in a different direction. This would serve as the foundation. For if i'm starting with the bark up years the foundation i have and then you can you know the reader can go off on their own without foundation exactly and then also showing like how that could be in in general terms how could be expanded upon in where there's leeway because i feel like a lot of times with craft projects. It's definitely geared towards people who want that concrete thing again. I get that. I've i've had the same thing where i'm an unfamiliar territory. Now making you please tell me the dimension cupolas. Please just tell me exactly what to do. in this is saying here are the parameters. Here's the safety net. But then here's where you can go and so it's creating safety within the unknown or at least trying to have here's where it could be expanded upon this section you know and it's it's trying to encourage people without without overwhelming them and i hope i did that. You know it's hard to see sometimes beyond your own image of what you want the state to be and hits. So i'm excited to see how it's received from what you're describing. I would assume that you have seen beyond your own take on it because you have referred repeatedly to you know the way you're helping or trying to address people's questions and concerns two point where this conversation made me think about how i don't do those things so i'm sure when you were doing a better job at that than you think Absolutely did that was like what i was doing the whole time. Just hope that my my hope for that met everyone else's expectation Oh i'm sure it did. I'm sure are. I'm sure it will. Should i put it that way. Sure it will now. One of the questions. I have about doing the bulls is actually project is actually holding your projects. Do you have some work holding type. solutions in do try to sort of on the situation at the the victory of the book. As you now it goes from like harvesting to storage and tools sharpening south care and then had to prepare a blank depending on what orientation of bowl. You're going so talks about like general preparation.

"Like. I feel like i can see that fear and i can understand that it's not that i'm that i'm over on this campaign it's like why can't you get with me here. Like why can't you do this. It's more of like. I get where you're coming from and it's it it's safe. It's that safety of being. Like if i can have reference that i know him on the right track and it's like an i get and i'm trying to Not just get people to the place where they can make a bowl. That looks like something. That's in the book but more of like where they can get to a space where they feel like they can make decisions about how they wanna make something and let go a little bit. You absolutely you're talking about how it it relies on the hand. And the i to to know you know when it's the right shape and when it's done in those things and i'm assuming the biggest. The hardest thing for people to do is to trust their hand in there. I to know that. Yes okay. i'm done now. Or this is what i want or i'm happy with it or whatever those things are and that's why i'm trying to anticipate those questions because it's it's like i understand why you want to know why you want to know those things. I wanna know those things to before. I go into a class for tackle it project because if we're talking about accessibility to for some people it's like this is a one shot chance i don't have avalon access to would or i. I don't have a lot of time. And so i wanna make sure that i'm addressing that to of like i understand coming from that circumstances well of being like this. I don't have a lot of opportunity here to screw up and in that be prompted as well like i rela i. Just there's been very few times where i considered something very screwed up. You know that's neat. That's the most beautiful moment ever. But that's part of the book to of being like you know. How do you resurrect something that you deemed a failure and to me. What i what i how i frame it in the book is like well i. I don't think the project itself is where we should focus. I think it's how you're framing failure. Newton scared it. That you're hijacking everything else and so it's just like just let it go like you will fail. How about that. You know it's going to happen so if you know what's going to happen why are we. You know it's it's coming at it from more of a rational standpoint. I think people again wanna grab onto his little more concrete about beating like if we know it's going to happen and you're probably gonna fail failure doing something new than less like halftime with it. Because look you already known so like let's just have fun and as part of your chapter on self care. I go into that. That's it's actually it's more the introduction kind of it's a running theme throughout the book too were tried to remind people in yes definitely could be part of self care although the self care thing is something that i wanted to touch along side. I've never seen a test in any craft making or woodworking book to my knowledge. I would love it if someone could point to somewhere where anything is is. I feel like i could expand on it even more and going into like what you said kyle but it's mostly just about like things we might even already. We probably already know. But it's more of like you know you're you if you're willing to like oil your tools after every time you were then waikiki to stretch you know like it's a living breathing talk about one shot to get it right. Your body is the thing. That is so tenuous and precious and yet we're just asking so much of a day after day after day and not not doing the things that would like keep it running well like in putting these attentions to machines and not four cells and so it's you know it's stretches and Are just near suggestions of body work in yoga Taking breaks this like setting a timer. You now i have to drink water and then you literally yourself to treat yourself well In its in. Its funny in an ironic. Because while i was actually doing the photographs for i strained my back. I'm taking the photos in itself of them. I'm just like. I look through the edits. And i was like that's when i was really feeling that irony. We're i'm just like looking at the camera like what i can't do this right now. That is so funny. Because about oh i would say about two months ago. I have started really paying attention to doing a bunch of stretching exercises. Because it's like hey at my age. And i'm not that old but i was just like have been like i used to and so you know it's just like hey i need to get you know limbered up and stuff so and it's really paid. Dividends basic stuff hijacked like hydration. Yeah that's a big one. Yeah i just drink water like it is my job because it is part of my job. I can part of my job And then also just learning a little bit about anatomy and what muscles hurt. And then i find out where their action points. Aren't i've learned. A lot actually just had a car packed appointment today. Need to keep up on that staff or else. I will pay. My ribs will go out of place like it. And i'd rather pay the toll of of doing all these things to take care of myself. Which really isn't a toll. It all becomes enjoyable because you can see it making a difference. You do the work now on an ongoing basis and can take care of it or you. Pay the price of the and really. I mean i run every day On purpose and but but b. because of that. I am very mindful of what my body is going through. There are some days where something hurts. And and i i have to pay attention to that. I've had lower back pain. That knee pain. I've had soreness of all these things. I know why they happen. But it's super important to know how to deal with them and everyone's individual to. I've i've done things that others absolutely don't understand how i could ever wanted to do that. I couldn't feel my leg physically. But i ran twenty miles on it but it was. It was a nerve in my back. That was the problem..

"A one year of keeping these and so this is kind of a new thing and we're actually probably going to add a second hive this spring. To just try to keep it going probably harvested anything yet. What do you re did we. We harvested so we end of summer. We got a good summer. Run of honey Our intention our prime intention was to leave them as much as we could to let them survive so there are sizes to these boxes. There are deepen medium frames. We had a setup which is called a double deep so deep brewed frame which is a full like ten inch high frame box with ten freeman it and then that equal was honey and they built that up and filled with honey. Got to a point where it was crank and my back just a lifted off. It probably weighed eighty plus pounds right a big box. It's heavy In the winter we flip the orientation of that and left. All of that. Big box of honey fought in july. I installed medium box on top. They filled forty percent of that. They drew frame out and filled that with honey partially. And that's what we harvest. It ended up being How many we did like the the basic mason jar size. And i think we got three mason jars of it minimal. Nothing you know. We haven't even touched it. we have it we. We have no intention to sell it. We just like keeping the be used for the benefit the benefits of having bees having them in the environment all that stuff like yes and then the whack you can do more with the wax. And i scraped it and loved it for you know the rest of your planes. I mean i could. I could go right now and grab like the the leftover this. I've got. I've got a set of those frames that i we got one of those hand. Crank being like honey extractors Some trivial spinner and just bats at against the walls runs down to the bottom. Yeah kind of. Except it's like three and a happy toll. Yes but i've got those frames that are now honey lists that i could totally scrape that and boil that that wax to the something. Yes i sean right. Now or physical beeswax. I couldn't wait till shores picks it up. Yeah what did it small batch homegrown but no it's cool. It's it's it was interesting enough. You know our our neighbors obviously noted us suit up on these white outfits to go check on her lots of questions we're neighbors and then no it is fine. You need it. I did all that. But i was doing it in shorts stung three times and not because they're angry. I hit them off though by getting in their space and some of the two of the time for sure they were like on my knee. And i meant down so that must have freaked them out just motion and i i got hit on my legs twice sucked but to see them in the environment. We were seeing them on our flowers. We seeing them by. My wife's grandma lives a couple doors down and they were poolside. We we we could recognize our be just looking up the water on the on the surface you know and it's really kinda cool i i asked and never got a satisfactory answer. How the dog sledding. People kept the track of the roughly hundred dogs. How do you recognize your be there. Little smaller than other bees was news gi family. Yeah the honeybees there. Little diminutive in size you really. I mean maybe it wasn't. But i know i know of a collection of a few thousand bees and my yard owned so that within that proximity good likelihood that there are because we see them. Yes i name them. They don't say hi. They recognize us because we feed them or anything. It's it's generally blue and yellow right. Yeah right yeah. I think you see like my partner keeps bees. We have a friend who's like a floral designer. And she grows a lot of stuff. And it's not too far from our house and it's just like a big field of flowers and a greenhouse in a vegetable garden and and she put up any she had three of the max but we had the same issues where die off and and it was like one year was might another year was Mold because of the fluctuation of. Yeah i did. What's called a the volley board on top. You know that. I don't know so vivaldi it literally is. The name comes from the four seasons music. It's something that's supposed to. It's supposed to allow them to breathe in all seasons so what this is in your inner eyelid by the inner eyelid has like a frame. Oh with vent holes on the side that are screened and then you put burlap in there too so what does any moisture that comes up. Which will it will rise with the heat. But if dissipated through this air flow in this burlap. And i'm happy to report the time that i've checked on them. Which are few times our winter the inner cover one hundred percent dry. I wonder lately this she may she may may see. May and yeah. It's not like to listen to a woodworking podcast advice information and and as as a an accomplished woodworker you could whip one up as i did in about fifteen minutes at super easy. It's quarter-inch plywood and one by fours. It's superset do net. It's like the list of thing because of course you know you could make one. I think it is much better store but you should just you. Just go by that probably. I'm just my gift to you. Is my honesty that was granted. Yeah yeah it was. Like i can make that. Damn it's like twenty five dollars though it's really not kinda like i can make an entertainment center. Sean e you have been making one for years now. The problem is i haven't we'll remember. Lee has router jig to make be frames with. Yeah yeah of course they do yes box. Best kyle what have you been working on. Well he'd bring the podcast back to woodworking.

And so i'm in the process of building that hoped to a finished it today but i didn't so hopefully tomorrow i'll have the finished and giving a test run may corrected. That's putting a metal strap behind the piece you're bending and then using a winch to pull it correct. Could you from what i understand. Based on the very limited knowledge. I have seen bending that strap on the back is critically important because it stops things from kind of cracking out the back. Yeah yeah Keeps it all under compression. Rather than let paul expand you need the end stops and the backing but could you accomplish that with just clamps or what. What what what takes you to the next level of needing a winch. Well 'cause i was trying to do it myself You know Having a strap in then bending these bows by hand. But i could only been one side at a time and i think the pressure wasn't equalised. I got on the boat have been but i still had some compression a blowout and the piece also twisted so. I'm thinking being able to bring this in evenly or semi evenly across We'll help especially you know like if this was greenwood was been in. It wouldn't be a problem. I could do that by hand all day long. Probably anyone strand yeah but But with this kiln dried You know it's it's it's a challenge. So i'm up to the challenge. Don't one of the things. I'm doing with this team. Bending rig is actually making my bench parted the rig. So i'm actually using the dog holes in my bench and the us I have a lot of threaded. Rod happens threaded rod through the dog holes and to secure the actual beam as well as the form and the in the plate with the police on. Yeah once you've bent the peace. Do you just leave the winch under tension do you throw some clamps in to tighten it up let it dry well first of all have to throw in some some clamps and then you can put some pegs around it and then you just let it dry but first of all i'll clampitt and then i'll have to take strap off of it gingerly one wants in the clamps and then so it's cool. Yeah i'll leave it on for a lot of people take it off pretty quickly But i'll leave it on for about thirty minutes or so you would have to to take the stop off Well why that's striking but his long pieces already been bent as long as you..

President biden signature. The package includes three hundred dollars in weekly unemployment benefits through september six as well as sending fourteen hundred dollar direct payments to many americans. Progress on the stimulus. Package may be one of the reasons. We've been noticing. Bond yields inching upward on monday. The ten year yield briefly rose as high as one point six one percent in the morning. Let's get some further insight with wsj markets columnist. Mike byrd in hong kong. Glad you're here mike. Good morning. Mock how does this all relate to fiscal policy and a stimulus that were expecting to be passed this week. Fiscal policy and the stimulus program is pretty central to this. So it's a big point of debate. Among economists and analysts and investors about what precisely the impact of these measures will be. It's a very large stimulus relative to what was passed immediately after the financial crisis in two thousand. Eight two thousand nine. Some people think it will overheat the economy for example that you'll see significant inflation after that some people very much disagree with that move. They think there's enough slack in the us economy right now to accommodate the stimulus an obviously depending on whose correct that. He's close to correct. That will have a big impact on asset prices as well and mike how are the rising yields viewed by the fat. And how can it impact future decision making. Well i think this is. The other component is adding a lot to the uncertainty here so the fed has framed changed. Its framework slightly. It's tweaked its framework towards called average inflation targeting which suggests that it's going to have a little bit more leeway in terms of not hiking interest rates. Alsacien flation approaching. They're allowed to be a little bit more balanced little bit more patient with that but markets on quite used to this framework yet. They don't really know how patient the fed will be some people. Don't trust that if the floods seed feds. He's inflation coming though really polls and not hike. Interest rates so the uncertainty on the fiscal side and the uncertainty on the monetary side is. What's contributing lot of this. Sort of volatility to the uncertainty that investors have

"byrd" Discussed on Ridiculous History
"Welcome to the show ridiculous historians. Thank you as ever for tuning in We hope this story will Moves you the worst were to have today. Hi i'm ben. We hope serves no. It was a bit of an amuse bouche for Whatever else you got going on today We're talking about cows as we're talking about we're talking about not only cows talking about gern z. Cows which is the thing. I didn't know about now we're talking about cows with really cool names And we're talking about cows that lived in antarctica because Arctic is not really known for its hospitable climate. Let's say and you know. Cows are sort of creature comfort. Beasts they like to you know chew on grass in grays and laze around until you know they they get slaughtered or whatever but the milk ones typically. They're like you know treated like a member of the family right ben. So how did milk cows end up on such a frozen wasteland as antarctica. Yeah this was a question. I posed to our super producer. Casey peg grim who only set not only refused to answer but said he would not appear on. Today's show. i'm kidding that's why he's making major moves. But but this is a great story. It involves An historical figure. That's always fascinated me rear admiral richard e byrd antarctica bird cows These cows did have interesting names. Here's just the set. The scene real quick. Admiral byrd took a number of expeditions to antarctica and in nineteen thirty three on his second expedition. Some new individuals join his crew klondike. Gay nira deer foot. Guernsey made and four most southern girl and a Another another individual borne in the course of the trip. These don't sound like people names do they. They shouldn't because these are the names of three guernsey cows as right And they spent more than a year as you know producing dairy cows on the ross ice shelf in artika And then in nineteen thirty five. They returned back to This the you know by the civilized world and they were like celebrity cows So let's think about all the logistics that take just to even get to antarctica pretty brutal siv wage. I mean as we know like nothing grows there it required. It's almost like living on the moon or something You gotta be a particular type of adventurer to even want to spend any time there well. I'm sure it's gorgeous. A locking go wrong. typically typically. it's the realm of you. know pioneering kind of adventuring explorers or scientists. Yeah this is one of those places that i got close to visiting dole. But i wasn't able to make it happen. I was trying to travel with a group just to conserve cost. The average cost Going to an article like ten grand per person you can get it as low as five grand but it's even now in the modern day just a civilian. It's it's tough to get. There was even tougher during admiral. Byrd's time to understand why he took these cows with him on a second expedition. We have to explore what happened on his first expedition. Now bird was a big deal. Big big deal born eighteen. Eighty eight died. Nineteen fifty seven lived a lot of life in his time. He was a naval officer. He was a pioneer in the world of aviation and he was a polar explorer. Today's probably best known for those explorations of artika so his early experiences after graduating the us naval academy in nineteen twelve inspired him to make a life goal. A bucket list His experience flying over the sea ice and the glaciers of greenland had inspired him. You know they gave him a hunger. He wanted to fly over the north pole. Yeah and not just to see santa's workshop because that's definitely at the north pole but on may ninth nine thousand twenty six bird Navigated a flight With floyd bennett says serving us as pilot And they made what they purported to be the first airplane journey over the north pole. They flew from kings bay. Spitsbergen norway chew the north pole and then returned And that was a fifteen and a half hour flight And apparently everything went off without a hitch Site from a tiny little snafu in the form of an oil leak From the starboard engine Their plane was a falker. Tri motor airframe. I love. I love the name falker. I'm not gonna lie And they both received the us congressional medal of honor for their heroism and their intrepid sued. Because that's also a word Though there was some Skepticism from certain members of the press and the public as to whether they're plane actually reached the north pole. But that's for another indeed. That's a story for another day. We're not gonna give airtime to these haram fers People wouldn't get lost in that they didn't get in the weeds about the facts because bird was what they would call a smoke show. Man was a snack. He was dashing handsome he been in the navy. No-one died on any of his expeditions. So far so people were like led him have this. He's pretty much a celebrity. He did lose out on the prize for the first solo transatlantic flight. Charles lindbergh beat them there and he was very disappointed about this. He didn't know what to do. He was in the doldrums. He was sad he was in his feeling says we would say in the parlance of modern times. And that's what he met. One of my favorite historical figures edward burne as the father of public relations. The man largely responsible for the nineteen fifty four invasion of guatemala on the us part and the reason. You have bacon for breakfast. Also the nephew of sigmund freud. We've got a got a good episode or two about him over stuff they don't want you to know bernice said this bird who is very depressed at the time. He says you know bird. Why don't you put antarctica on the map for americans because previously and arteaga had been dominated in a way by people from the uk and people from norway but no one at this point in history ever actually flown over the icy southern waste as a matter of fact people that's pretty wild beliefs about it because no one had flown over it. They said you know there might dinosaurs there. There might be lost tribes of uncontactable humans. Nobody really knew what they would fight and also shout out to. The savage land marvel comics which is inspired by some of these beliefs so. Burr took his advice didn't he. That's right in nineteen twenty eight bird decided that he wanted to explore unknown parts of antarctica from the air he received backing from quite a few financiers including edsel ford and john d. Rockefeller because like you said he was. He was a public figure. He was the modern equivalent of like a reality show star or something like that and he inspired confidence in these investors who believed that he could get the job done and that it would.

The Problem With Newton's Throwing Game in Rams Loss
"Version Cam Newton did we see here what he was asked to pass. Well, I thought that he saw the field decently well and I think he's making solid decisions with the football. The timing could be a little bit better and there's certain instances where I think the timing is more of a factor than others for instance the defaulted to Mere bird on the double move. The pressure really was a factor on that play and he had to slide up in the pocket to avoid the pressure. But if he doesn't have to slide up and he's able to throw them all on time and that's probably a touchdown or at least a more competitive play right instead of two guys being all over damiere Byrd at the catch point. He's behind the defense. He probably has an opportunity to catch that ball the other kind of issue that I I kind of see what the timing is on the short throws, you know, James White's production and and ability to affect the passing game has really hurt a lot because the cam and I don't need to put it all on cam. But when you see James White Run routes out of the backfield, he's the type of guy that you need to get him the ball sooner rather than later. You can't hold the ball and then throw the ball to James White the flat because of the players deserve. And to get James White one on one with somebody in the in space on the outside on the boundary, then the ball needs to get into his hands sooner than so he can read and react and make a play and make somebody Miss. So he saw that third down on the opening drive where they ended up having to go for it on fourth down cam just Waits an extra tick. It's just an extra tickets literally half a beat and because of that half a bead by the time James White catches the ball game turns upfield the DB is right on right and if he's able to get the ball out just a little bit quicker than James White has some time 15-20 yard game, right. He has some time to shake somebody and and eluded tackle or Thursday through the angle or whatever the case may be. So those are the little things that you see with cans timing and the timing of the entire operation that when you only throw the ball nineteen times and you start to count, you know, okay, you have the Mist default and your bird and there was a Crossing route to Jacobi Myers. That was a really tough throw that came just missed by like an inch or two and you have to make that pass because then you have to make the double dog. Work with bird and you have to get James White the ball sooner in the flat and these little things these nitpicks truly. They are nitpicks folks. We you go watch other quarterback play and it's not it's not all sunshine and rainbows for the other 31 teams either and I think we get too caught up in the minutiae of where is his Fleet and you know, his shoulders are flying open as hips are doing that and he's not pointing towards his Target and this that and the other thing I think it's too much conversations about those little things and not enough conversations about the big picture things, which is really just timing and kind of understanding what you know, your answers are that kind of stuff that I think is more important probably than all the little manush has like the throwing mechanics and things like that. Yeah, and we talked about this last week just under rated quarterback skill off of of being a dink-and-dunk quarterback. It's it's it's it's there's such negative connotations behind it. But the the Precision that it takes and the timing chain, And the placement all of those things is the difference between 4 yard losses and fifteen yard gains sometimes and those are big plays potentially if you hit them right and and being able to do that within the rhythm of this office is difficult seeing obviously James White be neutralized because there's not a lot of Playmakers on this team and he is one so finding a way to get him going. I think that really goes hand-in-hand with Cam being able to do this off

It's like life is good i. hope it doesn't because at the end of the record doesn't get lost because it's a pretty cool rock'n'roll song. I mean something's gotta be at the end. Has a great message about you talk about finally liking and loving yourself and that's needed before you can help others right. Now message narrows it ain't it ain't perfect but it's better than it used to be right. Exact. That'd be the methods of lifers. Good. So the point is I. Hope People get something out of it that I intended for them to get out like just all my job is to put the truth out there you know, and basically I try to make a solution in every song. You know it's it's. It's it's. I try to end it with some sort of positive note and the you know the Rock Cycle. So rats like a bitch if somebody said so someone if someone doesn't WanNa.

"People are more acceptable now. I would like that before was. In the music business per se like when I still playing in bands signed or anything do that was a bike messenger in New York for a while I was taking freaking instead of being Johnny Casting. Right right. You know and and I take it first thing in the morning and I'd be zipping through the day with you know packages on my bike and and and and like a like a cigarette case full of joints you know I mean I have this thing my my dad, his father both died of this. of the disease alcoholism. So you know the that part of it's in my jeans. as far as it being easy well, I, think that the. And Listen Trust me. I'm really not interested in the music business anymore. I'm like. I put these records out but I'm not part of the like I don't know what's going on but I do know since there's not as much money being made in the rock and roll business I would tend to think that being drugged out Guitar Player. It's a lot less accepted than it used to be. Because as long as you're making money for the record company got away with a Lotta Shit. Yes. You know. So probably the hammer came down a little bit and I know this is great. Programs like musicares, which is part of the recovery So the recording academy. they have musicares. musicares is a place where people in the entertainment business could call on if they need to get into treatment or served. I've done stuff with them. You know I've done some like groups for musicians that are new recovering. So yeah, it's way accepted. I think when I when I first got into recovery in I, don't know there was the Betty Ford Clinic there were probably a handful of very well known. Rehab Centers, I didn't go to Rehab I just started going to community support group meetings took. but now there's like rehabs all of the country. So is it easier? I mean like I said, I'm not on the road with people. So I don't have a clue I mean he's still what's TMZ and you still see people that are we have every three weeks? Yes. But I would think that it's easier to find recovery now. Because it's out there and it's so public and it's not as shameful even though there's still a stigma. It's not shameful thing like it used to be. A may think it's even trendy. You could call it what you want. As long as you're on the right side of the grass, I don't regret. That's what you call it. Just. Don't die. And these these are times when it could be especially hard. For people you know `isolation has. To make it harder. Always say I saw addiction rise on isolation. That's when that's when the voices started telling you that you know you need to get high to get through this or. You can do it this this last time or you won't do as much So. Yeah to answer the question to your point. Yeah. this pandemic since March I think the the relapse and od rate has gone up like thirty thirty, five, forty percent So I'm very sorry for People that are kind of considering going into recovery. They never quite made it into a group or something like that, and then this happened, and then you're alone your thoughts and. You know the one thing you do in the middle of New York? was like crazy in March with all all the. That's here when we when we had a really bad you know if you're if you're if you have that craving obsession, you'll convince yourself. It's okay to go out and COP. Period. So well, the rough world, but there's a solution and I found it and and I'm happy to share that knowledge with anybody that reaches out and needs help because that's part of my responsibility as somebody that's been given a different. Life You know. And make no mistake about it. That made one hundred and one frigging personality life mistakes in recovery. But I I have not picked up a not felt the need to pick up a drink or a drug, which is like really the victory. Well. We had. We had a gold mine reader right in. And wanted to get your reaction to this happens to be a mental health and substance misuse speaker coach advocate, and he didn't like how the word Junkie came up in an interview on our pages He said and I quote calling someone a junkie you might as well call them a piece of shit which I know you rider didn't mean or at least I'm going assume he didn't mean but man that's rough. The accepted language is shifting and thinking has changed. So strongly in the last decade I know it's tough to keep up. What do you? Well. You know there'd be some. Might be too politically correct and others who think it's very appropriate. So that's coming from someone. Who is in the transit get and listen I went to school two years ago and got certified as a counselor and recovery coach counselor in training I need certain amount of hours but obviously, I can't work at a place right now. But That claim a lot like the getting rid of the stigma you know they're trying to change the language. They don't say of substance abuse anymore that's been she's disorder. Does it help With the Halloween know you know I mean I don't mind. You know it doesn't the work zone infant me if you if you do the history and find out what a junkie is in in in the you know early twentieth century when even before that maybe. When somebody was an opium? Or Morphine. News. And they used to sell metal For their debt high it was they were called junkies. Yeah William burroughs use it all the time and he was you know of course and and you know what I've actually asked. In, treatment like I, because it came up a lot of times and I've asked. Clients. Treatment does that where defend you and I've not one of them is is said, yeah but I understand the the want to lessen the stigma. Of Of Addiction and at that's a good thing fabulous yup. I think you have a great attitude. You carry is as long as people as well as our works for people getting sober recovering works for people. You don't care how. Right. I when I do my recovery music groups the first thing I say I am not here to push. Twelve step program. Whatever keeps you on the right side of the grass is a good thing and then I turn it. You know I get Eumerus I say listen if if if you WanNa go to twelve step. Fabulous. You.

So, let's hookup with Berkey and let's talk about sobering times in the mission that he's on. Ricky Byrd. However, are you man sobering times's an album about recovery which is Correct me if I'm wrong but to define, it would be the struggle between sobriety addiction. Right? Is that how you would get? Okay. It's the. The the songs they go from addiction, not an order but addiction recovery cope change for the better. You know it's all about it's all about recovery. That's the umbrella I guess. Now. You know people listening to this. How would you could tell them because they might not know how you got on the road to sobriety and how you spread the word about sobriety to other musicians tell the musicians in the industry and to other. People who are struggling Well. Okay. So I'm not I'm not anonymous about my recovery Some people are I am anonymous about my means because that's That's why there's anonymous programs. But I you I started using I started smoking pot when I was thirteen and You know and and by the time I stopped eighteen years later I was not pretty. Pretty. wonky friend. Like the last ten years pretty brutal, I mean I, I think going to go downhill quicker in in the late seventies early eighties when when cocaine became a word that I understood right as you know as to seeing stuff in movies and on TV. So yeah. I, mean like I. I went down that rabbit hole and in nineteen, Eighty, seven actually September twenty fifth nineteen, Eighty, seven is. Is when I walked into my community support group meeting and I've been clean and sober ever since. So so So now this guy and I'm touring sober, which you change you need to change your whole method thinking and touring so. You can't really Hang out the way you used to hang out right and and and and You have to you have to. I don't know what you have to put like a a rope around Dublin rope around you. So you don't get tempted right. So At the thing I think at the beginning I was hanging out in ruins when people were still drinking and drugging, and you know it was told to me very early on by people in recovery might not be a good idea. So I would I would start to go back to my room. And Foam people call people in lean on people, other people that were clean and sober. I stopped hanging out at the bar I mean at the beginning you know then later I wish I could sit at a bar table and have a club soda but you know there's quite a while before. And you just try to put up your, you know your best defense and when I would pull into town. Well, let's put it this way. well, first of all, let me let me preface it with this I I was never a guy that was to UNCON- stage or. You know over Medicaid or something what did I smoke a joint before I went on says, yeah absolutely. Not Every time but I'm saying you know, yeah, did I did I had to have a couple of Heinekens throughout the shelves? Sure. But I would never trust on stage of maybe. On one hand. Time in bads and and I tried to actually you know I. try to do coke before a show. It didn't work for me at all. problem with that is like five minutes later more you're like the song. so I just didn't do that but after the show traveling, you know either staying in town or traveling on the bus to the next place. Complete Madness Yep And when we were off the road complete. Yeah I've heard Johnny cash which I remember Ronnie Wood's said that his problems when really when he was also load. open so so So that's that was that was the deal and I just in the last ten years will brutal out of eighteen and and I didn't really realize I had a problem listen. I was. You know I was all involved in. you know people say was did everybody get high? Is like no but the people I used to hang with right? Not Everybody in the world was drinking and drugs like no no. But those are the people that wanted to hang out with right. Whipping you wanted people judging you. and. That was the. Late, seventies and eighties where was more part part of the culture It was less accepted if you were trying to be sober now I was gonNA. Ask you is it I hate the word us were easier but is it better for an entertainer because I'm not GonNa just center on Musicians because this is about entertainers to because I think Johnny cash put it that when you're on the road constantly in take something to sleep you take something wake up, you take something to get through you know.
