We're small 20 employees 25 employees, but when I first set it up We went with Google Mail and G Sweet We do everything in Google docks, Google sheets. These are the advantages of the Google tools are that they're on the cloud, so they're accessible anywhere any time from any device. And so that's a big advantage. The disadvantages there not as polished or is capable is the office. Apse. So there are features that you might use in word or excel, especially in excel that just don't have any equivalent feature in the Google, Doc. Yeah, And I think that's a done deal at work. I was just more wondering if it would make sense for me to make that change on my personal haha. That's a good question. So, for instance, fused pivot tables and excel very advanced feature. Like you might be a little disappointed with sheets. But if all you're doing is making tables and doing basic calculations, you know you're keeping the books most of the things you do on an excel you could do in Google sheets easily. What about? I'm not finding an equivalent for access in. Oh, no, no, no. If you so you're using are you have custom access applications. I do on my my person system, So that is a good reason to get the good news is, you know they call it now? Microsoft 3 65. It's like eight bucks a month for the personal version, actually, from what access is going to be more expensive that is not part of the base model the emerald and 2016 and understand its next month. Maybe they're for Microsoft's coming out with some new Stand alone. Product s O. We call this the perpetual license. It's the way we used to buy software. You go to the store and buy a box for and I don't know if you remember a breathtaking amount of money like $700. And then you own it. And Microsoft really is wanted for a long time to move to a subscription model. I think eventually everything will be a subscription model, but they moved to the subscription model, but they still offered the perpetual license. But it was office 2016. They have said Now that they will next month offer 20 offer, You know, office 2020. In the perpetual license. I guess there's enough of a market that people want that if I were you, I would. I think that the subscriptions a good deal because you get a terabyte of one Dr. Storage, which is nice. Everything's moving to the cloud. It's nice to be able to store your documents in the cloud.

Yeah, they're occasionally a little weird compatibility issues. Thie iPad doesn't do G sweet so well, but most of the time, it works pretty well. But I should also mention Microsoft also offers Web versions. I don't know if there's a Web version of access, but they do offer free webs versions of all the other office APS. They're very similar to Ji Sweet. I think it's in response to Gee, sweet thie. Other thing you might want to look at is open office or library office, which is the version. I prefer that's free, open source software and they have an access clone. They certainly have a spreadsheet in a power point Word clone. I know a lot of people use it and prefer it, so that's free.

Stuart Stevens was an uncompromising Republican until Donald Trump
"Stuart. Stevens, thank you so much for coming on the PODCAST. Great. Longtime fan first time caller. Will thank you. You know you sent me a DM on twitter asking. For me to to read your latest book and where could you where could you send it and I thought if Stuart Stevens is sending me a message about a book he's written I probably need to read it. The name of the book is it was all a lie and I am so glad I, read it because in some ways it was. It was Cathartic for me to read because you know it's so secret. I'm a Democrat will little left of center and always these suspicions about the Republican Party. But you as a creature, the Republican Party someone who helps set up the Republican Party to hear you. Just. Sort of. What's the right? What's the right word to describe? What you do in this book before we dive right in. Look I. started. On the quested ended with this book asking myself how is trump could happen? and. You know kind of the old saying that your high high-scoring English if you can't ride that, you don't really understand it. So for me, it really began is a very personal quest You know two, thousand, sixteen, a lot of people were wrong about Donald trump it's hard to find anybody was more wrong than me. I didn't think he'd win the primary win the general and I realized in retrospect a lot because I didn't want to believe it. And then I went through this period after his elected, a lot of my friends did like Donald Trump is it really the Republican Party? But I don't really see how you sustain that. if part of the realities of what trump is brought to us as a death of truth. I think being truthful is all the more important. And it on one of the things that really drew me to the Republican. Party. Was the concept of personal responsibility. which now we've become the ultimate victims. Party. So for me I just kind nutty idea that if I believed in, I turn responsibility, it should be the first one of responsibility. I. Didn't want to write. You know the trope of books in DC of if only they'd listen to me. I couldn't write that because they did listen to me. I couldn't sort of like going them. So that's that's what led me to write the book I think it's a combination of a Mayor Copeland of your. That is the word I was looking for, and I couldn't find it was it was may Copa on on page thirty, six at the end of a gets the first chapter. Is a paragraph that I think encapsulates what you were just saying but also the premise of the book you write, how do you abandon deeply held beliefs about character personal responsibility, foreign policy, and the national debt in a matter of months you don't the obvious answer is those beliefs weren't deeply held in the end the Republican Party rallied behind Donald. Trump. Because if that was the deal needed to regain power, what was the problem because it had always been about power the rest, the principles, the values, it was all a lie. that. Is when I read that I underlined it practically ripping up the paper and underlying underlining it because that's what I've been seeing and has taken my breath away about the Republican, Party in the age of trump. All of these things I grew up hearing and learning from Republicans have been completely junked. You're right. We were wrong. I. It's I don't think we've really seen a collapse of a political party A. The way the Republican Party's collapsed in modern American history and probably not American history. To me, the Republican Party doesn't exist political party now exists cartel. WHY DOES IT Exist? It exists to be Democrats. That's not a political theory. It's just a marketing principle. It's like asking OPEC with the higher good of OPEC. Sell oil what an Arco. Darker curtail say what are you guys really trying to do tried to sell dope man and you know what's the Republican Party is trying to beat Democrats. and. To know. Tower to no purpose I think other than power
2020 Fall Movie Preview
"Hi everybody I am Peter Travers and welcome to this special edition of Popcorn where creed you all the movies opening between Labor Day and New Year's Eve I know wait what aren't we in a pandemic Will really be moved this fall and theaters to show them in I mean the answer to both those questions is a huge. Yes. Sixty two percent of all US theaters are open now and there's going to be more to come covid permitting, of course, and those movies that can't make it to the multiplex will be available for rental or streaming in sickness and in health people, you can't keep a good movie down. So let's start with the blockbusters that are out there. Number one is tenant. Brain Teasing epoch from Dark Knight Director. Christopher. Nolan. That's geared to fire up the fall season and in theaters and with your mask and distancing in place you can strap in for this kind of Christopher Nolan throw ride and watch the spy master he's played by John David Washington give James Bond a run for his money you know you just have to. Get your head around the physics in this movie. Maybe don't know about how you can go forward and backwards in time at the same time I don't know either I was a little confused by that but you'll be glued to the visual miracles that are on screen here every cent of tenants two, hundred, million dollars production budget shows up onscreen Eisele popped. Jaw dropped pulses. Oh, pound all that good stuff movies and back baby. So what else do we have? We have Moulin which is out there right now and you'll check in Disney plus to watch this because it's not in theaters but you can rent it and you could see live action film of the Disney animated hit about a young woman who disguises. Herself as a man to replace her sick father in the Imperial Army the new moon is not musical and there's no comic relief from eating Murphy as the Voice of a fast talking dragon named Moo Shu. This is not that kind of movie. There's no whitewashing but using Western actors in the drawn from Chinese legend and as Rouland the astounding Lou ye. Leads in Asian cast that includes martial arts icon jet. Li is the emperor up and China's leading actress Gong Li as shape shifting witch who teaches on how to survive and prosper in a man's world.

Gadot, remember her places the DC comics immortal wonder woman into the cold. War where she does battle with the media tycoon played by Pedro Pascal and the villainous Cheetah played by Kristen Wiig always to me an asset in any movie Chris. Pine also returns Steve Trevor The American. Pilot that one woman loves I know didn't he die the last time during World War? One people you gotta go with this this is Hollywood. So if we can borrow wonder woman's last sube truth for a moment, credibility isn't the issue here. It's the show stopping stunts engineered by returning director Petty Jenkins executed by Godot, and she's a formal Israeli military structure. So you know you're in for a really good time. Next up is black widow look wonder woman has competition already. You know we've been waiting since spring for Marvel to let its first solo black widow epic out of storage and into theaters.

This direct sequel to nineteen ninety two's cult fright fest stars Watchmen Emmy nominee Jadu Martine the second as a visual artist drawn back to those housing projects in Chicago's Cabrini-green where he was born now the whole place is gentrified beyond recognition but the green is still haunted by Candyman Tony Todd an urban legend who still kills anyone who summoned him by saying his name five times.

Okay next up no time to die look no red blooded movie Fan is GonNa Think of missing Daniel.

Driving the Carretera Austral, Chile
"I'd like to welcome back to the show Steph dyson who has a travel journalist, a guidebook author most recently the Moon Guide to Chile and a travel blogger at worldly adventurer dot com. Steph. Welcome back to the show. Thanks having me Chris I'm excited to be back again. Well Of Truth. I should say when I say welcome back to the show, Steph has been on the show before you have heard her talking about northern Chile, a number of episodes ago I wanNA say five years ago. Yeah I think that's correct just before you started working on a guidebook. Kissed before Ya. So this is kind of rounding out that experience because the moon guy to Chile just published. And that was a quite a long amount of time working on this guidebook but also Steph was the show a week ago and something went terribly wrong and it did not record. So I appreciate your patience but I also appreciate your expertise on Chile. When. We talk about she leave this time we're talking about and I'm going to try and pronounce it the cut. US thrall the southern. Highway. Good. That was good pronunciation. I I. See you've been working on it. We'll have to do some things right this time. What is the? astral and where would we find that in Chile? The CATTA that Australia Archie means the southern highway to give you a bit of a clue and it's in Chilean Patagonia. Now, how to guy near is the sort of slightly nebulous region because nobody's really sure if it's somewhere on his own or if it belongs to other countries a what it is, but effectively, it's a region in the very far south of South America are in between Argentina and Chile. and. The kind of thorough style is the kind of rules western section. So it's the kind of Chilean bit where she gets really narrow sort of not part of the country, and it's just before you hit very southern Patagonia West toughtested by name and the destinations that you've discussed previously only put podcast bright further north than the last show we did on Patagonia, there is a lot of Patagonia. If we look at the map there. There's a lot of Chile in terms of height, not necessarily in terms of with. Yeah it's a long country and I have children most of it and it. Pile. Will End just this road is seven, hundred, seventy miles or twelve, hundred and forty kilometers. So when we talk about One week itinerary, you're going to start us not at the top and go all the way to the bottom where you're gonNA start, US. Yeah so I always recommend people planning Patagonia is starting inbound Maceda says about halfway down the cutter that'll style just outside this sort of biggest town in the area it's Koi Heike and it's an apple that where you can fly into directly in Santiago. So it makes it a really great destination to start your trip. and Are we gonNA do anything around the airport flying are where we going to start our actual trip? I would recommend picking up a call. Then you don't need a four wheel drive to cut that Australia just needs sort of reason, the high clearance because most of it is now paves. The big for the locals I'll tell you that hasn't that hasn't been paved before but yet you're gonNA jump in your car and you can head south for a couple of hours to via settled gusty steel, which really tiny little town outside of a national park. You talk about outside of national. Park. The one thing as we talk about this pretty much this whole way there are national parks everywhere I think. I'd made the analogy that if you started at the top of this highway in you're a squirrel, you could probably get to the southern tip of South America in jump from tree to tree within a national park. I'm not sure the tree is correct but the national parks is almost accurate. This just a whole lot of national parks here in southern Chile. Yeah, it's actually what the government did. Last year would start it up the root of their parks re to the parks. On, it's about two, thousand, four, hundred kilometers I believe I'm connecting pretty much port Lamont which is the very northern tip Patagonia all the way down to Cape Horn, which has its own national pockets the bit at the very bottom of South America's islands that people go. Because the sale is used around the whole and and it was a big deal because white windy down that. Square yes. Yes. There's now they sort of route to the pox.

So I would not join the church but I was still probably more interested than many of the kids did at enter the church it's been one of the most important interests of my life. And continues to be.

Yeah and and there's such a convergence of those things. Yeah. It seems all the way through in your life as a poet. It is it is a convergence and.

"We know now that they were following us for about a month. Cry To our we did. Notice strange things happening. But when you're working underground you are. For most of the time, you're a bit paranoid you. You kind of imagine that everyone is looking at you knows what you're doing. And looking back off to the arrest. We realized that they were following us for quite a while. In Nineteen Seventy, eight, twenty, nine year, old Tim Jenkin was active in the political efforts of South Africa's anti-apartheid movement. The country had been operating under apartheid for thirty years. A system that institutionalized racial segregation. The word apartheid means a partner. and. The government was controlled by white minority. Tim Jenkin White. He grew up in Cape Town. So I grew up under the situation with everything was divided. So. spatially, cities and towns divided the white areas. Black areas. So we went to white schools. Were black schools in black areas. Everything was separated even buildings had separate lifts for White People. For Black People. Talk said benches, white people and black people and certain beaches with designated for black. People. Most of the beaches with what people So. I just accepted eight. Because I didn't know any better I just assumed that the way things were. And then. Maneuver Twenty one years old the to the K.. He says, everyone he met their asked him what he thought about the fact that he lived in a country that was so racially segregated. He says he was actually confused. But then he started seeing programs on TV. Shows that would never have been broadcast in South Africa about the consequences of apartheid and at first I, didn't believe these These films that I was seeing. I thought it was all propaganda. After awhile, and after reading books that I couldn't obtain in South Africa. I began to realize the started thing is something quite terrible. I'd be living. Positive it. Really maintaining it in the sense and not understanding. What's Black South Africans? was suffering. He, returned to South Africa, and started studying sociology at the University of Cape Town. There, he became friends with another white student named. Stephen Lee. And started cheering books that he had brought back from the UK. anti-apartheid. Books and political histories that were censored in South Africa. At. This time the most prominent anti-apartheid organization was the African National Congress also known as the ANC. Nelson Mandela was a member of the ANC. By the nineteen seventies, the organization was banned in South Africa that had been declared unlawful. Seen by the White Minority Threat to. Public. Order. They operated underground and Tim and Stephen had heard that if you wanted to get involved, you could try contacting their office in. London. So the two of US traveled to the. UK. and. Simply went and knocked on the door. and. It was quite an amusing. Incident. because. The person who received US Said please just sit down there and you'll be wasted. Then he went into his office and type something on a piece of paper. The piece of paper said. You should not come here. Please meet me at the cafe around the corner in half an hour. So that's what we did. Tim and Stephen met with members of the ANC several times. And they asked to be put to work back home in south? Africa, the said Okay you can go back and sit up your print shop. And we'd need to teach you various things like security matters, how to conduct yourself in the underground. And showed us a few other. Innovative. Devices for for distributing leaflets and information one of these was. The is the leaflet bomb. It's not really a bomb. It was really just. Kind of exploding device. That would kill. Hundreds of leaflets up into the air, and then they would rain down on a crowd target crowd somewhere. So we went back to South Africa. With this knowledge. And set up shop.

How The Other House We Considered Came Back Around
"Every time we're back I, feel like saying we're back. Yes we are back from our little summer break and it's kind of a good news bad news situation with being back a good news is that we're back. We've got a full upset for today. The bad news is that I think we might have been a little bit naive and presuming this would be the start of a normal fall podcasting season John and Jerry of the past we're like, Oh, I'm sure they'll be back in school I hope they'll be back in school that was when cases were trending different way than trending. Now I think we were hopeful probably a little bit naive that this would be start a fairly normal school semester for our kids but obviously, I'm sure a lot of you guys are going through the same thing throughout the country in the world. That like it's not, it's not going to be enormous start to school. I know some people are going in person some people are doing part time. Our kids are doing virtual learning here at home, and so the next few months are not looking the way that we expected them to I mean I guess that's just twenty twenty right? That is a sentence everyone listening I can say like I didn't picture my August. And September looking like this there is a meme. Put it in the show notes it's about cheese and it basically shows like a beautiful cheese board and bree topped and fruit, and that's January you have runs through January February march April may and it's like someone gradually looking more like chaotic just like a celebrity who's going from like their Glam, red carpet, all the way to being frazzled and just screaming into the void. Opposite of glow up. This is cheese demonstrating and it goes from like a beautiful breed topped and fruit to like someone eating a chunk of cheese right from like the Hong. Like neighbors was not slicing going on and then it ends with leg one slice of American cheese in the plastic grab the craft rap cheese. That is your August and September for sure everyone we talked to you feels like they're going through this pivots with work pits with life pivots with family. It's not just the schooling thing that's just one of the left turn that's going on right now we really don't need to detail for everyone why this year's gotten complicated you guys all get it. So we just when we Looked at everything decided that the podcast something that we probably need to put a pin in for a little while if nothing else just because of the logistics of making it while our kids are here doing their virtual learning because a quiet house has been in short order lately. Yes we don't WanNa make any promises right now about wind will be back with the podcast because if we're taking one lesson right now from this year is that you can't predict what's going to happen anyways I'm sorry for the bad news. Because you guys know we love making this podcast and it pains us to put it on sort of a question mark hiatus but we just figure. That's the best thing right now for us but we said it was a good news bad news situation I feel like the good news of this is instead of just telling you on instagram or the blog like, hey, we can't get back to the podcast. Instead we have a bunch of updates. We're going to give you a robust full episode right now to kind of. Catch you up with everything that's been happening something that happened when we were on a break that I got so many DMZ about everyone was like we need to hear about this. There's also a very exciting thing that happened in the House that we're going to talk about in fact, maybe I should segue into it like John Master segue man I wouldn't call that a masterful. SEGUE. Segue when I said Segue man it made me think of the picture of you on the SEGUE which I'll put in the show notes. John Looks what in the show notes because I feel like at this point, it's really great from probably ten years ago, and it's just John Standing on a segue. If anybody sees these show, not vacuum and gonNA wonder what this episode was about and I will say important things that I had to update people on and means lots of memes. But what we're going to talk about is a project actually just. Wrapped up here at our House I. Think if you've followed our blog the last few months over the summer, you've seen pretty much every room in this house so far I think the only thing left is the bathroom, and if we have our act together, we will have a post on it this week. So you will have officially seen every room in the house by Wednesday when you have six rooms eight goes. Really Fun. It's like much more settled feeling than we expected but something outside took forever to come together while and the funny thing is it should have been a pretty straightforward thing. The thing was a fence. We knew we were in ads fencing to our yard at some point just to give us a little bit more separation from our neighbors we learn from our time at our beach, house in Cape Charles? That when you're on these small lots a fairly dense neighborhood that it's nice to do some sort of. Like privacy fencing, just to make the yard field a little bit more like intimate in some spots. So like we wanted some fence between our neighbor directly to our side, you know the one that's the house under construction that you might be able to hear us we record. Yeah. Sometimes they pop in on the podcast and it sounds a little something like this wait I'll do a nail gun who the Hula Jerry is gunning for an outtake here I can tell that was abd core strength that came from the belly. How Neil feels well, and in addition to the one on the side between the construction were also eventually going to do something outside our bedroom to create like a little private courtyard area off of our bedroom. So we knew there were some things we're going to do at some point we weren't in a big rush, but we knew we wanted that fence between us and the construction pretty quickly. We actually got the ball rolling on that as soon as we got here like maybe the second day we were in Florida, I, feel like I needed disclaimer. To this, a lot of it has to do with the culture of Your neighborhood in Cape Charles it was very common. There was a certain height that was allowed lots of people. Did It neighbors went in on it together this neighborhood is similar. So we actually spoke with the builder who's building that House next door, and we're going in on this fence together. So I thought Ooh, we got this ball rolling right away. When we landed here, we've got the builder in on it like we're really going to roll on this fence what was supposed to But I, guess there's actually a big fence material
Mono vs Stereo
"Over did sit podcasting DOT com. Okay. Here we go. Gay. jussie. On our with this morning versus Stereo subject I think of well and truly IVA style. My welcome on this particular line of thought. So going to Cape Today super-quick. But before we get going to support the show, did say podcasting dot com slash support. Where you can buy a coffee all reviews in apple podcasts or Google podcast listen on spotify. and. That Pichai Vitton will have more of our recommended tools and things it off tested. I've atop the Non Spammy S. basically things that I one hundred percent trust. So podcasting dot com slash support to help us keep this partnership a- flight I guess. Are Doing one subject episode I'm going to do two. Subjects today basically four and five of the series. The. Full as in that I think I'm going to return to producing an encouraging all of my. PODCASTS IN STEREO AND A my mind to allies be laws ing the stereos spice in an episode at some point. Is this. The platforms themselves. May Not in the past showed I will in the future as more more music services get involved in the spice. They have been nine to re encode audio into Stereo on that sand clad was doing this for a long time. Now. These mopping imperceptible change to your audience between the Mono version, I applied to somebody like sand cloud and the Stereo version that they get. But why not Alanya sales with the platforms predominantly doing? And that's to use Stereo and allow for the Stereo image if you decide to have any kind of Stereo, imaging your file. Why thought? Those criteria and there's always the risk when the technology is reincarnating, you'll file that it may get downgraded in quality. Oh, changed in some way that you was the producer have no control over. And that's decide they've got a standardization on their platform of old the file tops our stereo of a certain beat right for example. So I think it just makes sense to basically. If it's go to be an Stereo Mike that decision yourself and Mike it sand the way that you wanted to so the platforms don't have to do. Any what might be Subha manipulation of your file. So number five, and this one is probably my favorite raisin. RETURNING TO STEREO AND Putting more thought into using the stereo emails. And it's because new hardware and listening devices and the foam where that they're coming with like the. Apple podcast for example, this starting to utilize and laugh at things like spatial audio. So, this is obviously looking to the future for. Environmental to is and things in virtual reality and augmented reality. But why not at least be operating in steria and being creative in whatever way you can to have some interest in the sand field. The Related by the new features, the hardware in the way on that hardware coming with. The migration on returning to steria is because to me it's really exciting a why we can recreate sand even if it's not throughout an entire episode, but whether it's moving background music that sweeps from saw for few seconds all the imaging between segments or just. Allowing. Full cut to something he may have recorded outside. This is in the studio whatever that thing is. You can actually allow people to into that space. So I. If you're cutting away to Oreo that was recorded at Saud and you're walking around a football, I will look off done on these particular show in the past. Being, able to take people and put them in that space. So they feel like we've moved from a dry studio sitting. To out saw not can feel like I'm actually in an environment where his depth than spice and distance. In my opinion, that's only really achievable even at the my spicy level in Stereo posed to Mon-. So, there's my raisins. The technology is moving towards more immersive audio experiences. So why not follow that trained to be ahead of the
"cape" Discussed on Miss Information: A Trivia Podcast
"Have the woods hole oceanographic institute so it was founded in nineteen thirty? It's the largest independent oceanographic research institute in the US and scientists and engineers from their travel the globe from the coast to the deepest depths to tackle questions ranging from climate change to oil spills and ocean acidification in September nineteen eighty five a joint french-american expedition led by Jacques. Louis Michel of Premier and Rubber Ballard of the Woods Hole Institute identified the location of the wreck of the titanic cool. There are really cool. Is there a really cool Organization that's there lots at low toll vessels and they said they have underwater ones. They've some submarines they have some above water ships? You know regular shailer ships. Yeah so yeah a lot of coming out of woods hole there that's cool and also just extra tidbit the CAPE COD or the Cape. Cod type of cocktail consisting. Vodka and cranberry juice cranberries are very big up in Massachusetts especially around the Plymouth area and the Cape Cod region. So that's why the cranberry juice drink comes from there. Another North American Cape Cape Fear. Oh yeah the movie. Yes exactly like the movie. So fear is a headland that just into the Atlantic Ocean from bald head island on the coast of North Carolina. It's for the intersection of two sweeping arcs of shifting low Lang beach that are the result of longshore currents that also formed the frying pan shoals which are part of the Graveyard of the Atlantic man. This place sounds scary. There are more than six hundred ships that wrecked in this section one end in this section of the ocean as victims of shallow shoals storms in war. That's the graveyard of the Atlantic so The NAME FOR CAPE. Fear comes from the fifteen eighty five expedition of Sir Richard Grenville. He was sailing to Roanoke Island and his ship became stuck behind the Cape. Some of the crew were afraid they would wreck giving rise to the name Cape Fear but Interestingly Cape Fear is the fifth oldest surviving English place name in the United States. Oh Wow that's cool isn't it? It's funny that we can track that kind of you know. The you mentioned the movie Cape Fear. Originally the original film came out in nineteen sixty two so that was adapted by James. Our web from the nineteen fifty seven novel the executioners by John D. McDonald in the film concerns an attorney whose family is being stopped by a criminal. He helped to send to jail. So that was a Neo Noir. Psychological thriller starring Robert. Mitchum Gregory Pack Martin Balsam and polly. Bergen it was remade. Nineteen ninety-one Martin Scorsese starring like Robert Deniro as the the very scary criminal guy But three of the main actors from the nineteen sixty two version did appear in the remake. So that was kind of neat. Oh that's cool. Yeah that's I mean. That's probably if you don't vacation in the outer banks that's probably how you've heard of Cape Fear is is through the movie. Yeah Yeah no. I have never a vacation in the outer bass. Well you're missing out because apparently because there you also have Cape Hatteras saw Abedin in a thin broken strain of islands. In North Carolina that arch out into the Atlantic Ocean Ocean from the US mainland and back toward the mainland creating a series of islands between the Outer Banks and the mainland so for thousands of years these barrier islands have survived onslaughts of wind and Sea Cape Hatteras is also the nearest landmass on the North American mainland to Bermuda which is only about six hundred forty eight miles or five hundred sixty three nautical miles to the east or southeast. I wouldn't think that Bermuda was that far north. Yes but same all right another one that we've heard of Cape May Right so that's a peninsula an island. That's divided by a narrow channel. It's the southern tip of the island is the southernmost point of the State of New Jersey. So the peninsula resides in Cape May County. Runs southward from the New Jersey mainland separates Delaware Bay from the Atlantic Ocean. Kate is named for Cornelius. Jacobsen may spelled M. E. Y. Dutch explorer working for the Dutch east. India company. Cape May is apparently famous as one of the top birding sites in North America and Cape May New Jersey. The town is one of the country's oldest vacation resort destinations entire city of Cape May is designated the Cape May historic district which is a national landmark due to its concentration of Victorian buildings. Oh how nice yes. We're going ahead a little bit south and go to Cape Sable. So that's the southern most point of the United States mainland and mainland Florida. It's located in south western Florida in his part of the everglades National Park. They have three prominent points there on Cape Sable the east. Cape which is the actual southernmost point of Florida and the United States mainland It also is the location of Lake. Ingram which the southernmost lake in the United States the Middle Cape also known as palm point and then the North West Cape and has a lot of lakes and beaches and again it's part of the everglades national park. So there's a Lotta. There's a lot of things down there. But yeah like you've you've obviously been which is like the real southern EST like part of the United States and the continental us but but this is the part of the mainland. This is the southernmost point and the mainland but also in Florida Cape Canaveral. Ooh That's in. I'm Brevard County Florida. It's near the center of the state's Atlantic coast. I'm this is actually known as Cape Kennedy from nineteen sixty three to nineteen seventy-three in his part of a region known as the space coast. Yeah of the Cape Canaveral Air Force station so since many. Us spacecraft have been launched from both the station and the Kennedy Space Center on adjacent Merritt Island. The two are sometimes conflated with one another. Oh so they're not the same thing. Kennedy Space Center is on Merritt Island as opposed to Cape Canaveral. I say okay It Omar shoots spacefaring heritage the Florida Public Service Commission allocated area code three to one as in a launch countdown to the Cape Canaveral area Okay that's cute. Yeah Nice job. Queue and other features of that Cape include the Cape Canaveral Lighthouse in Port Canaveral. Which is one of the busiest cruise ports in the world. Where oh I believe. It used to be one of the busiest crew. We'll see where we'll see. We'll see where the future takes us. Also I guess we'll see In Mexico you have Kabo San Lucas or something. Sometimes people just call it Kabo So that's a resort city. At the southern tip of the Baja California Peninsula in the Mexican state of California Sir Cabo San Lucas is known for its beaches scuba diving. Locations in the sea arch are good. The Kabo San Lucas is very good life. So that's Kabo in Spanish means Cape in English. You see that it out heading down to South America. I know it's okay. I'm not GONNA do it. I'm not GONNA do it. I was GONNA say everybody else out there. You can you picture a CAPE IN SOUTH AMERICA? And if you said Cape Horn than you're right. So porn porn is the southernmost Hedlund of the Sierra del Fuego archipelago southern Chile. And it's located on the small or knows island. So it's not the most southerly point of South America. That's actually the Diego's GonNa Islands. Cape Horn marks the northern boundary of the drake passage and marks where the Atlantic and Pacific oceans meet. Oh okay cool so k. Porn was discovered and first rounded in sixteen sixteen by the Dutchman Willem Schouten who named it after the city of Hoon in the Netherlands to WHO and for Decades Cape Horn was a major milestone on. The Clipper Route Because sailing ships carried trade around the world and the waters around. Cape Horn particularly hazardous owns a strong winds large waves strong currents and also sometimes icebergs so yeah. The need for boats and ships around Cape Horn was actually ended up being greatly reduced when the Panama Canal opened in Nineteen Fourteen Austria failing around Cape Horn is still widely regarded as one of the major challenges in yachting and it is believed that more than ten thousand sailors have perished Rounding Cape Horn. Oh my God see this is why again. Do not go out into the sea. It is not gonNA. It's not gonNA treat you right. Not For us. Not For us see is a dangerous place. How many times? I have to tell you the whole reason why I started. This podcast was to warn you about space and the sea and to teach people to really obscure fashion design. Exactly have written on my whiteboard. Just remember that Cape Horn is one of the great capes. We'll tell you a little bit more about that a minute okay. Moving along to another continent going to Africa. You have the Cape of Good Hope. Yes. Isn't that sound nice? Good Hope it's a rocky Headland Atlantic coast of the Cape Peninsula in South Africa. So when following the western side of the African coastline from the equator the Cape of Good Hope marks the point where ship begins to travel more eastward than southward the first modern rounding of the Cape was in fourteen eighty eight Portuguese and it was a milestone in the attempts by the Portuguese to establish trade relations with the Far East. A common misconception. Is that the Cape of good. Hope is the southern tip of Africa instead that is Actually Cape. I'll go haas which translates into the Cape of needles. That's the geographic southern tip of the African continent in the beginning of the dividing line between the Atlantic and Indian oceans. The Cape of Good Hope also called Cape Colony has also been of special two sailors. Many of whom referred to it simply as the Cape. So it's a way point on the Cape Route. And the clipper route followed by ships to the Far East and Australia and still followed by several offshore yacht races and again keep of good hope is also one of the Great Capes Cape Good Hope is also the official home of the South African Astronomical Observatory up top and the unofficial home of more than thirty five hundred shipwrecks down below. Like Gosh so until the work of the South African Astronomical Observatory began in eighteen twenty the treacherous seas around the Cape of Good Hope saw more than five hundred years of ships battering and crashing through the South Atlantic with little to no usable stellar navigation. Established Gosh so without the positions of the southern stars accurately mapped ships were often on their own in. Unfamiliar waters are under unfamiliar skies. So the observatory. There has done a lot of a lot of work. Oh yeah you know what I never even thought about that like if you are from northern hemisphere country and you know how like Guide Yourself? Sars soon as you cross Ed equator literally. You can't look anywhere on exactly like what are we who Again you should not sale where it related to that. Also the CAPE OF GOOD. Hope is the legendary home of the ship. The Flying Dutchman Oud by tormented and damned ghostly sailors it's doomed forever to beat its way through the adjacent waters without ever succeeding in rounding the headland the Flying Dutchman. All right So two of the three great capes are Cape Horn in South America and Africa and finally in Australia. You Get Cape Lee win. That's spelled L. E. E. U. W. I N. Cape. It is the most South Westerly mainland point of the Australian continent in the state of Western Australia and Australia. It is considered the point where the Indian Ocean meets the Southern Ocean. Okay the war Dandy Aboriginals. Were the first peoples in the area. And they called it. Do Gallup I like that better but okay. Yeah me too. The English navigator Matthew flinders named Cape Lou and after the first known ship to visit the area the Lewin a Dutch vessel that translates to lioness and so that vessel had charted some in the nearby coastline in sixteen twenty two so again. That's the third Grade Cape so I guess yachters like to around the mall. I mean it's like a big deal if you get around all if you're able to navigate around all three. I don't know if you have to do it in the same trip word. But it's a you know. It's a sign of accomplishment did. We haven't talked about Europe yet so Cape nor the kin and or decay. I N N is the northernmost point on the northern peninsula in Norway it's on northern peninsula in trump's Ogg finnmark county in case you're checking so that's notable for being the northernmost point of mainland Norway and by extension the northernmost point of mainland Europe. Okay ignored catching up. And then Kabo Roka or Cape Roca is a Cape which forms the westernmost point of the central mountain range of mainland Portugal and so that is the westernmost point of continental Europe and the Eurasian landmass is Kaberuka in Portugal cool. Yep those are all the ones I wanted to talk about it all the Kate. All the Cape's I wanted to talk about and just some Bonus Cape Info for you. I know leaves a little bit at the top but the Cape of Matador is called a Maleta in it has traditionally always been read but not really for any bull related reason so bulls can't see red they're actually calling line to it but they react to the erratic movement of the Cape itself and that's why they charge. Actually Maleta is actually only used in the final third act of a bullfight like they just like get in the ring with the with the came.

And the police show up and they take the words of the killer's apparently because the killers are allowed to go home and sleep in their bed. Bites while on. Albury is taken to the more you know There are so many things here In the The facts of the case that you just spelled out and I just want it there. Is the police report as it was filed in the moments after after the shooting after the killing where it says the witnesses said that arbitrary looked like a suspect who had been Breaking into that particular house and that They saw him quote unquote hauling ass down the street and when you look at the video I WanNa talk about how we got this video to begin with but when you look at the video. He's not hauling. Ass Johnson. He's doing what most people in America he is. Simply interest is and you know you put in contact. They come up with some a believable reasons. The killers down. It's you'd think about a walking while driving while black Both in general it is apartment literal while blatch Trae Bob more walking home while blatch may is submitted things Attia Jefferson sitting in her house living while black and now we come to Amman Albury and he's just Jonathan Wa black. They suspected him for that. All right let's talk about the McMichael's Chavis Michael Is the person who had the shotgun And fired the shots. That killed Ahmed Arbitrary and George. Mcmichael is the father who is standing in the back of the pickup truck with a three fifty seven magnum. A talk about why Gregory McMichael in particular is problematic in this case. Certainly we believe that the police did not arrest these murderous fob and said do also the cost Gregory met. Michael was a former police officer and had a thirty year. Employment will as a detected as a DA with the local district attorney. Glenn cowards so we believe they did not want to arrest their friends their colleagues and so that is what reason. We suspect Jonathan that they didn't arrest him. The other reason is even more heinous. We believe because Aubrey was a young for American that the police simply took the word of his white careless that he was up to no good that he was committing a burglary without doing any of appropriate investigation. Apparently because you know if he was A. Where's the burglar's mask? Where's the Burgers toes whereas the burger bags you know whereas the incident allegations of burglaries in this neighborhood? In the past says they suspended he had committed burglaries before. Or is it simply? They know that he wasn't a burger but it didn't matter because they had made a decision that they were not going to rest their France. Who happened to me? The killing this young black man and how many how many people had to recuse themselves from this case. So the District Attorney District Attorney's I think three were on the third one right. Now we are on the third district attorney right now. The First District Attorney Jackie Jackson I had to recuse herself at Ledge conflicts adventurous and May as also a big controversial Bruin thousand even with police saying well. Maybe we need to file. Charges have been list that she told them not to file charges now. She disputes this claim. But that issue should be a best wail furthermore Bud Heart in Waycross Georgia district attorney debt also had to recuse himself but Nash Conflicts. Elba Jonathan This district. Attorney born to write a memorandum of law a memorandum from his perspective that there was no criminal that took place and that the killing of Abbad al-boraey by John. Greg and Travis met Michaels with justified weekday. That is completely inappropriate. If he had a conflict of interest the he should abide by the rules canons of ethics and not try to put his thumb on the scales of justice to try to make. It is phrasing colleagues who he has a conflict of interest from sitting in judgment. Now you've been mentioning The the name of Barnhart his his name is Barnhill George Barnhill but here's the thing the New York Times in its story about this about this. Killing has this paragraph. I want you to respond to this. It says in an email Mr Barnhill wrote to the State Attorney General's office on April Seventh He asked to be taken off the case stating that his son an assistant district attorney in the Brunswick Prosecutors Office had handled a felony probation revocation case involving Mr Arbitrary. He also said Gregory McMichael had helped with a quote cravey's prosecution of our Berry Court records show that Mr Berry was convicted of shoplifting and violent and of violating probation in two thousand eighteen. According to local news reports he was indicted five years earlier for taking a handgun to a basketball game. So I have two questions I do. You contend that the relationships between Mr Barnhill and Mr McMichael play mightily in there being he and his son being able to stay out of jail for seventy four days absolutely. I think it was the good old boy network that was working against the interests of justice for the dead of black man and working for the bits. It of these white men who had upped pre-bus Admit with Law Enforcement and were colleagues as absolutely. This is what helped them to remain three sleeping in their own beds at night. Seven four days while it was dead in the ground Now the second question is and what's in that paragraph from the New York Times story that I read our job Mr Berries involvement in the criminal justice system. Can you talk to the the previous the previous prosecution? The the Being convicted of shoplifting. Violation of probation the Being indicted for taking a handgun to a basketball game. What do you say to people who read those those things from Mr Bury's arteries past and that gives them pause? Where is they're trying to assassinate his care to them and they have a SAS innate.

I mean, this is not an issue of democrat Republican. But this is how the hard right Republicans think and they push everybody with them.

Where south bend was getting more where I was getting more attention and south bend to. And I was thinking about what that meant for south bend. And and how I could use that benefit the city more. Look part of being in politics is people come along all the time and put big ideas in your head the question, you gotta ask yourself about every step. You take from the first time you run for any office to the moment when you decide it's time to move on and have your life back or the voters decide that for you, the the questions you've got to ask our where do I belong is there some match between what a given community or district were state or country needs and what I have to offer. And and how can I make myself useful? And those are questions that you'll read all sorts of things about yourself that that may affect the the way that the the you're perceived with the end of they you've got to answer that question for yourself.

I believe that there is probably going to be a choice in my life between being out or being a public servant, at least in Indiana. And the fact that that is not an either or choice something I could not have guessed as recently, as you know, ten years ago, I think it shows how much change can happen in our politics and our country. It shows how powerful the element of surprises in in our politics, and in our country, and as anybody who's paid attention to the conditions in our country in the last few years knows there are very good surprises in very bad surprises. But for me being somebody's who's ultimately optimistic about our country in about life in general. It's a reminder of. The idea that things may be possible that seem absurd today.

So and there's black people we so resilient as of a people as people that we believe that. We're okay. So the first step is to realize that. Would not. Okay.

"To have talk a little bit about how do we deal with the trauma? How do we deal with this? Because I know I'm not the only one we're not the only ones who are dealing with this. You know in in my line of work. Now, we are dealing with that very thing the trauma, these tragedies in particular, even in particular with the gun violence reviver 's. There's no way you can understand the internal trauma. That it wreaks on the individuals that are suffering suffering from the gun violence, and then even the people that love them and the people that are in their communities and their families. There are not enough organizations in the country that are dealing with the mental crisis of gun violence. You know, we have organizations for alcoholics anonymous, we have organizations for breast cancer awareness. We have organizations for people that are suffering PTSD, you know, because are victims of war having gone to war. But we don't have any viable means for people that need self care with the internal mental physical traumas that they suffer from with gun violence. I would call upon the mental health community to really take apart in creating safer spaces for people to get healing because that's just not being offered right now. And the tendency for most people say as wall, okay that tragedy that was that tragedy and people go on with their lives, and they move on you know, and. The next story in the media just goes right onto the next story, but the tragedy the continuing tragedy is the, you know, the broken lives that the people that are suffering this every single day, and there is no community help. No community forum. No medical help for them there there. There's no mental Health Organization.

"And and, you know, delving into the waters of the things that, you know, nobody wants to talk about, you know, accept the quietly talk about it at the water cooler at work or the talk about it behi-. Closed doors. The talk about it to their little community groups or the PTA, but they're afraid to talk about it to the people that will be most. Affected by the change one of the things that's affecting the change in positive ways. But also a little bit ghoulish ways is social media. The reason that the killing of Trayvon Martin took off as a national story is because folks in the community black folks in the community went on Twitter went on social media in demanding that action be taken. And I think at the at the cap event believe it was you do on who said. Because of social media people have no choice but to face this. Absolutely. I mean, I know in the work that I do with gun funds prevention a lot of the mobilizing. I would say actually, you know, a huge proportion of the mobilize in that. We that we do is specifically done on social media because that is the way in which people now are communicating and so social media has been become a very important part of creating social movements for Justice. And you you really can't have a movement without being involved in it. And and knowing that. The power of social media that is the vehicle chose to use to release my short documentary elite daily, and there was shared about huffed impose what I did was I put it in your face where you cannot refuse to acknowledge that this exactly happening. And it's a daily thing that happens inside out community often in is a two fold story community values police brutality, and I shared that story. I had to put it in your face because I represent what black men and women who are victims of polish retali- of gun violence what they can be. So when you see you see my story, and you see that are survive I represent Jordan Davis. I represent here. And make sure that he's story contained to live on and telling his mom that I will be okay. Just as he did when he heard about Trayvon Martin. He did the same thing. I do to my mother her note that her baby is, okay. Because that's how she felt when she told that to me I feel that. And I have to represent him to present right now. There's like when I go out here. I have to make sure you know, that I will be okay. And I'm representing him, and I will continue to make sure his story lives or because this who we are. He was unopposed logistic himself. He said that will not happen to me. He was certain and it wasn't. Hey, let me go ahead. And just let me find a way to make them feel comfortable. No, I have to live, and I will contain to live and he will contain to live this day.

The litany of cases of police involved shootings and just shootings of of African Americans has just worn down my soul to the point where I had already stopped watching the latest video of the week of someone black being being killed. I just had. No, no, I had nothing left after having written about all the other ones before. And I didn't understand just how much trauma I was suffering until a neighborhood. Local official things called it buys Reneberg council person in my neighborhood came up to me, and she said, so are you not going to write about the shooting that happened here? I mean, you write about this stuff all the time. And yet this happened a block away from where we are right now where you live. And that's when it hit me like I was so not dead. I remember leaving home that hours after it happened with my fiance. We walked out. I looked down the street and saw the motorcycle. Of the person who was killed by the police sought looked at it.

"In the way, do one put it so eloquently and passionately. You're speaking not just for yourself and not just for other African American men. I mean, I I heard myself in in what you just said, and there's so much in there. To unpack their two things that I want us to try to talk about one is what we've been talking about explicitly here in that is. Implicit bias? In the other thing is this incredible sense of. Powerlessness that we all have to deal with. I know right now we're talking about African American men, but this is something that African Americans period have to have to contend with. How do we go forward? What what comes to mind? I believe we start having these conversations be on L south. We know what we're going through. And how it makes us feel. We have to stop being afraid of making people feel uncomfortable. When you uncomfortable you grow. If you're not growing, you stand stagnant in we're not seeing people uncomfortable Steph or they're not growing from this conversation. It's not that black people to say, hey, look, you need to do some better we've referred back two years of pitchers in videos when it was turnover. Cheek firehose Doug been sick us. It was always trying to make them feel comfortable make other people feel comfortable without being just L pre existent enrages people. So when we start having those conversations those having those challenging conversations or you're feeling uncomfortable. Say I recognize. That maybe I'm not participated in such bias oh races headed twos. But I benefit from it, and what I can do to make amends make let's move is this mall gauge forward a little bit more. So we're seeing these things that happen consistently social media racism in this bias. It's not new it's been amplified now. So let let's go ahead and take me on being aware. And they're less implicate. You know, let's do something about it. We we have to move beyond that. Now, we we are where we are accountable because we're uncomfortable every day now skin while we will you say, hey, where you go to work, they make treat you like this. They may look at you like that these little micro aggressions that your face when you walk down the street someone Houghton they're big they locked doors. Go to story five years, we're costly been under attack cycle. Physically most cases up to have to be one of the key ingredients that I think needs to be there for these types of uncomfortable conversations to happen is trust. And I'm said for a long time that while these conversations happen on a peer to peer bases around the country all the time. There are lots of people having this conversation. But nationally, I think we as Americans we don't trust each other enough to have these conversations. How do we how do we gain that trust? Is that even possible? I think we as Americans is black Americans minorities. I think we have to stop letting America tell us who we are. I think we have to be empowered enough. You know, even as we're talking about what is black lives matter mean when we talk about black lives matter will we talk about black lives matter because we're reminding the rest of the nation and the rest of the world that we are here, and we matter, but I think it's more. So for us recalling to ourselves as a race as a generation a culture of people who we are and stop leading the rest of the world define who we are. And I think by feeling more empowered to define who we are as a race of people. And how important we are to the integrity and the very fabric and being of this country. Then in a sense were demanding that people recognize these conversations, we're in so many words saying you're going to listen, and you're going to hear what we need to say to you. And we're going to make you uncomfortable. Because as to one said don't only way to grow into change and stimulate change is by stepping out of the boat and being uncomfortable..

"Mind just listening to your answer Lucy where she with her kids around her. She said to Lester Holt, how do you tell your kids how to behave when they aren't doing anything wrong. The only thing that I can think to tell people and specifically mothers when they say, what do I tell my children? What do I tell my my boys my young male children? How do I tell them what I need to tell them? So that they exist and they come home every day. And I say there comes responsibility on your part to begin telling them, very very very early on how to protect themselves, and it's very tedious because it's hard to tell them how to support their ideas and support their opinions and to be who they are. But at the same time protecting themselves from people that don't support their ideas and don't support who's it who they are human beings. And so what I end up saying to them is that don't let them live in fear. Do not teach them to fear, even though they have just caused fear. You cannot impose your fears on them, and that they still have to walk and references to who they are as a human being. As a young black male as a young black woman, and and and to thrive in that and not live as if they do not matter not to live as if they are afraid because that's exactly what. This country would want you to do to live as if you are not completely free. But, you know, do on when it comes to the talk because that's what Lucy is is talking about here. I remember when I had the talk with my mother, and it was she was speaking as calmly as Lucy did just now, but I was raving mad. I was so angry that she was saying this to me. No, we lived in a predominantly white neighborhood. And what precipitated this conversation was the N word slipping out of the mouths of. What of my one of my close friends, and my mom telling me right now, you and your friends are the same. She had her hands at an equal level. She said as you get older, this is what's going to happen. And the my the hand that was supposed to represent me stayed the same. Whereas the hand representing my white friends rose, you are no longer going to be equal the older the older you get and want just wondering for you. Did you have was that talk? Given to you give away I live. I didn't have that talk. A wasn't taught to police myself as such a manner because as I grew older learned that it was learned behavior that the police will treat us like this about time. I was thirteen I had my first summer job. I knew that the police will come around, and it called shakedown take your money and for me I needed. I always have to have a pay stub in back pocket. So when he came around and got everybody else, I say, this is my money, and I have my pay stub. So always begin to rationalize myself to prepare myself for that. But all we talk about the talk. I now have to talk more than I would have when I was younger. So now, I'm having a talk with other people who wanna try to police me and my being when I speak on the incident was like, well, you was shot and police conceive this. Maybe you should've did XYZ eight try to tell me all the the ways that I should behave in rages me because I'm saying I have a bullet in my head bloodstained clothes guslan. But you're telling me that I am still a threat to you your store trying to police me immi- being. So why should I have to always make you feel more comfortable with just me existing? So no, I cannot submit the, hey, let me go hit and make sure everybody else's comfortable. And I'm uncomfortable in my own skin every single day. Komo also, right. And I actually wrote a piece about this. How been a young black man black man period, we're costly under attack from every angle from the workplace to school bag at home to even some of our personal relationships with we wanna lane. So one, and then he always telling us to man up and suppress these emotions always constantly been police for motions. And I can't I refused to do that.

And using that they didn't turn the music down that attitude. They didn't do what I wanted them to do. I felt threatened. Because they were for young black males and based upon the law and Florida I had the thorny in the right to use my gun to silence people that I believe are, you know, creating a threat towards me and my existence, and that's basically what Michael Dunn used as his defense is the standard ground law because as expansive and open as it is it gives people carte blanche based upon you know, sometimes they're not even credible threats. And this was not a credible threat to gun down Jordan and to shoot at the the boys in car the shooting happened in November two thousand twelve government twenty-third sediments after Trayvon talk about the conversation. You had with your son after Trayvon was killed was the very disturbing conversation because I can remember. I remember it as if it were yesterday, we're standing in my bedroom. My husband, and our bedroom, and we had just been watching. You know, the, of course, the media played over and over and over again, you could hear the tape of Trayvon sane help me. Help me Jordan's mom. Why did that man gunned down Trayvon he wasn't doing anything? Why did he gun them down? And it was very, you know, disheartening to have to say to my son, baby. You know, there are people in this country that do not value. You is young black male that don't value black men in this country. And you've got to be very careful where you go. What you do you cannot walk freely in this country like wine America. And Jordan just don't understand. I don't understand why this happened. And you know, I kept saying Jordan in the event that you are in argument or verbal confrontation with anyone standout. Standdown? Because nowadays this exactly what I said people will not use reasonable conflict resolution. They will take their guns out, and they will shoot you. And Jordan distinctly said mom, that's not gonna happen to me. That's not gonna happen to me. I can take care of myself. And there's not a day that goes behind that conversation does not haunt at my heart, and my soul because in the end, no matter how much we did to protect him to care for him. To raise him the way that we were supposed to raise him in the in in America as young black male. He was not free or safe.

"North Carolina, a former governor named Pat mccrory staked his entire election, a not just attacking LGBTQ people, but attacking trans people, especially and in a state that Donald Trump won by four points that same state voted to aalst for the first time in its history, the incumbent governor because he attacked our community, those attacks inspired, turn out across the state of North Carolina. Like we had not seen before LGBTQ people, allies, Democrats independents and some Republicans standing up and saying, we won't stand for this hate and voted to oust Pat Mkhori. We can repeat that in states all across this country, and I believe we're going to this November Chad Griffin, president of the human rights campaign. Thanks very much for being here.

"I think it's important that we do that, and it's my hope that people will continue to have trust the on this process regardless of how this. Works out for maybe my colleagues and and those who have been found to be involved in something inappropriate. You have three kids, you man that before they're young aren't? Yeah. I got a set of four year old twins, my son, Jackson and my daughter, Caroline, and I have a newborn who's one year old. Yeah, birthday. So they're really young? Yeah, they're young when they are in school? Yes, that they still teach civics, but by then and they learn about this period about your run. Yeah. And let's say you're not successful in your primary quest. What do you hope your children learn about you? Yeah. From this period? Yeah, I hope that they know that their mother and father made tremendous sacrifice, not only for their futures, but for the futures of other kids just like them. Because honestly, Jonathan, nobody makes this decision to run with so much going on in their three kids. My wife myself a lot at stake here. You don't just wake up and deci. Oh, well, this would be a fun thing to do. If you make this decision, it better be a calling. It better be. So you ought to feel so convicted in your spirit that you can't shake it. You can't sleep at night until you reach this conclusion. And when my wife and I had this conversation in spite of the trials that this would present absolutely the hardest thing that we've done either she or myself on our years on this earth, but we believe we're doing and not only for our kids, but for the kids that we can't name. I hope that they know that their father put everything into it that not only was I not a quitter that because of are persistence that at the end of the day, we were victorious ones, right? And that we were able to transform our state in such a way to make it a state that was deserving of them that the other way around, but but a state that is deserving of every night that they have to offer. I would take tremendous pride if that's the legacy of this whole thing. And if the conclusion is that it wasn't my time to be governor at this point. I hope that our run will provide motivation and inspiration for the next low black boy from Richmond heights who grew up in a working class house whole to make the decision that they don't have to be a millionaire, but they too can run and serve and give back to a state or community that they love. I hope that people will be able to make that determination either way. Quite frankly, Andrew gillum mayor of. Talahassee and candidate for governor of the great state of Florida.

"Could restore the balance of power immediately between the executive branch and the legislative branch, and somebody that is well respected on the world stage. And then we can have a really all out war in years to come about what the direction of the country is gone. But I happen to think that this is a very special time in. The nation's position as it relates to democracy without being overly history onic. I don't think that we're in a normal time. I don't believe that President Trump is taken the nation in the right direction. I believe that we're weaker, not stronger. Believe that we're less respected. One of the things that's making it a little complicated as the economy's doing well. And so the bigger questions we have to ask ourselves really like would price while we willing to destroy people civil liberties and make America, and I selected nation. And is it okay if the economy's doing well, then nothing else is working? Well, I think the answer that the American people are going to give is no, and I think that we ought to restore that balance quickly. And so my expectation is today that I will not be in that race in twenty twenty. I think that plenty people that are going to do it in politics. The truth is that you never say, never, you don't know what's going to happen. This thing is going to unwind over a long period of time. We do spend a lot of time worrying about twenty twenty really, really early. I would ask people to quit doing that. Not as. Evasion, but twenty is the most important thing. It should be. It should be abundantly clear to Americans that if the leadership of congress who happened to be Republicans, but by the way they represent all of us that if they are not going to step up to the plate and limit the damage that President Trump can do to us on the international stage that we ought to replace them. And you know what? If we give it to the Democrats and they don't do, they ought to throw watch too. I want to close because now we just have a minute left, and I can't even ask you about your your career and musical theater because he wanted to be an actor. I did. I still do. Oh. Really is. My first love is there. My father saw me audition once and he said, son, you really ought to go to law school and have all back on it. He's a role that someone has played that. You look at that and you go, oh my God, that's that is the role for me. Well, first of all, there are a lot of them I play Jesus and Jesus Christ superstar when I was at high school and it's all been downhill since there, but yet. But yes, Valjean in Enlai MS.

I'm rolling out of here on Broadway. You want to give us a few. No, no, no, no, not today. You got to buy ticket for that. I went to clones with something that is in the epilogue of your book. And again, you're, you're waxing philosophical here, you right to move forward. We must commit to tell the whole truth about our past to move forward. We must find that new space on race here, zone of belief that holds promise for a nation committed to Justice for all of our people making right what we have failed to do. We find that new space in politics and society.

"And. Wow. Everyone had started the k. part and welcome to Cape up. Ever since he delivered a speech on the removal of confederate statues and monuments from his city in two thousand seventeen former New Orleans mayor MICH Landrieu has been seen as a no nonsense leader who should run for president. So I asked him about that. His new memoir Trump in race and the future of the Democratic Party. This conversation was originally recorded for Cape up live event at the third way opportunity twenty twenty conference in Columbus, Ohio on July twentieth and has been edited for content and clarity. Lanzhou. Thank you very much for being here. Welcome to the podcast. Again, this is your second time and welcome to Columbus. Thanks, great to be here. So Columbus here. Here's the text message. I sent you on June thirteenth. As I was reading your book. Here it is in the shadows of statues. A white southerner confronts history. I wrote to you MICH it's k- part just in case you didn't know me. It's k- part when I read books, I write notes in the margins and underlying key or beautiful passages. I'm only on page eleven of your book and I've already underlined the hell out of it. You're a spots. I didn't time how long it took a while and you wrote back, thanks. You like it. So your book.

So you have to be kind of circumspect about what you say. Well, that is true. Thanks. Glad you liked. In all seriousness. Your book is an expansion of the speech you gave in New Orleans on may nineteenth two thousand seventeen, correct me if I'm wrong, just hours after the last of the four, three months, three statues. One monument where removed, why do you think that speech struck such a chord? You're not the first person to talk about race. You're not the first white person or the first white southerner to talk about race. So what was it about you or that speech that struck such a chord out? I don't. I'm really still to this day flabbergasted by the fact that any speech that I gave went went viral. I've been in office for thirty years. I've given a lot of speeches about a lot of things. Some of which I thought were really important, criminal Justice and lots of other things. But and this speech incidentally was given purposefully to a local audience..
