The Problem With Putting God on Trial...

"But I mentioned in the last episode that the idea of putting God on trial and saying to God in a sense, can you account for the evil and suffering in the world? This isn't just something that atheists do. They do it to score points. But there are believers who fall into a situation where they also have a beef with God. And very often it's for personal reasons. You lose a family member, you lose a sibling or a child, and you go, oh my gosh, so suddenly all the deep faith that you thought you had all along starts to crumble away. Now, one guy that I've debated on this topic, and I would call this guy an ex Christian. This is Bart ehrman, a Professor of religious studies at the university of North Carolina and Chapel Hill, he was raised as a fundamentalist. He was raised as a kind of conservative evangelical. And he says that he lost his faith over this issue over the problem of evil and what he calls quote unspeakable suffering. He goes, that's the reason I lost my faith. And when we were having one of our conversations and this, I think if I remember was on a campus, he began to say, I discovered that there's, you know, hunger and starvation and famines and poverty, and I'm like, fart, you're 50s. Did you discover that like now? Haven't you known your entire life if not your entire adult life? That the world is full of suffering and that suffering is pervasive in all societies. It seems to me a little unbelievable that this is some kind of a mid life discovery on your part. But nevertheless, orman continued to insist that his so called deconversion that's his phrase was because of this. And he said, you said it's not that I don't believe in God dinesh. I'm not actually quoting him. He goes, what I don't believe is the God of the Bible because he says I read in the Bible that you've got this God who cares about us. And you've got this God who had his own chosen people. And he looks after them, and he works miracles for them. And he shares their suffering and then I read about Jesus who healed the sick and gave sight to the blind and made the lame hungry, but he goes, what is that God? Why isn't he like in full operation today?

The Regime Being Run By Pharmaceutical Companies With Daniel Horowitz

"Daniel, and one of your pieces of my memory serves me well, I'm going to dig it up. You allude to the fact that this really is a regime that is being run by pharmaceutical companies. That this is about the small group of pharmaceutical companies that are calling the shots. Is it that sinister? Is it that diabolical Daniel or is there another explanation to this? I mean, I think it's broader than that, but certainly one of the lead ships in that armada of the system when you talk about the system, the cabal, the globalists, it's the pharmaceuticals. And I love how you call it the Fauci virus. China virus is really off message. The likely knew about it and maybe they had some involvement. This ain't the Chinese. They used Wuhan because it was offshore. This was done by UNC UNC Chapel Hill berwick, Jurassic, Fauci, and all the pharmaceuticals that were in it. By the way, fun fact, UNC Chapel Hill, which is the ground zero for the getting function of research for coronaviruses. You know that they're the ones who had Remdesivir. Gilead, somehow got ahold of it. Look it up. UNC Remdesivir. How is it that the only thing that was ever approved, which as I wrote yesterday have an article on this at the blaze NIH's own website says it causes liver toxicity and renal failure and we're seeing that with Sony patients, which is why a lot of people come in moderate moderate COVID, they should get over just like they go into the hospital with pneumonia every year. COPD, we have this treatable and they die. And it is the Remdesivir. It's one vicious cycle. So they'll look at Ivermectin C we can't use that and they're like, okay, let's say we're wrong and it's a sugar pill. But it is literally safer than Tylenol, won the Nobel Prize.

Listen but you blade that santa claus and everything that you did was you want to make sure the santa calls brought you that new playstation and then it bring that bag sticks So you make sure that you acted a different way And so i i explain it to. Hey we got act differ if we're going to change the narrative of competing against these top teams which we feel like we can say what that's the word week and that's where is it has to be and you know and also and the only kind of our bottle this year's or one of our mottoes we are all we need Both people outside of this building are are. You know if you look at people picking the game or people's opinion most people are not going to give us a chance to win this game but that doesn't matter the the only thing that matters is the sixty seventy people that are really part of the inside workings program if we believe that were and that's what so got along on that but that that's the word of the week for metallic has to be good stuff because i can see how much you you believe i believe but it can't just be it can't just be these shakeups asked to be our whole program. So that's that's what we're what we're working on this week and i i think we will are keys number one. We got truly believe in yourself. Teammates number two we got contain. The quarterback talked about that. We can't let him out of the pocket and we got cover for a long time number three var this to we've got to run the ball. Well we got dictate. The line of scrimmage number four big games like this two thousand eighteen kinda over battle a lot of times the size of the game.

And that's again. That's what we try to push to our kids. You gotta add on when you play this game and you watch honor. There's no doubt that he's having fun when he's playing the game and that shows on friday night and he played the entire game. It seemed like about four yards into backfield. Yeah they had a hard time block. we really need. We need that from him. Moving forward and again you know. We've talked about this floor. That another one of those guys a sophomore this planet a really high level Varsity football all right so you finish nine district with a four. Zero record actually is quite a few teams in your district with four zero records getting ready to get things started. You may and the team. You're going to see this week chapel. Hill the chapel hill bulldogs as a reminder. Everybody last year in district nine four a day. went three rounds deep in the playoffs. Losing to eventual state champion runner up lindau loop old by the way is also in the district so big challenge right off the bat coach. No doubt and that's always talked about that before. This district is the toughest district. In the state of texas i think any classification as far as the amount of quality teams. Every team is good football team and so we we start at like you say chapel hill. They're they're very talented team. They were they finished. Fourth district is here that like you said. Play three rounds and having a ton of retirement talent from that team and so they provide a great challenge. All pensively run a spread very similar to us. They want to throw their little different than last year. They new quarterback of their quarterbacks number four tower jones does an incredible job of extending the poi- and they they're passing game is very particle down the field and a he turns a lot of their plays into a scramble drill because he gets back there and run side to side canada. Yo a little bit different style or quarterback tab he's huge threat is as well but a lot of our style when when the passing breaks down he looks to ron and that that's kind of by design and their offense. Their quarterback is not necessarily looking the wrong. He's looking to extend the play by receivers encountered in the backyard football. And that's really tough for your defensive backs because yeah had to stay in contact with a wide. Receiver prevents great challenge. We gotta keep covering and also huge challenge tour defense of trying to contain him and keep him inside the pocket and so again they have a number of very talented receivers. They're number one. Receiver is number two lonzo mcgregor. He's junior he was. He was our top receiver last year as a sophomore number one task berries there are other slot receiver also junior back from last year and then they have big six five outside receiver junior ash ashton. Walk sorry aston. Watkins who is also retired and so most of their receivers and all receivers are are retired from last year. And their offense alon is retiring from is your so they. They bring back at time without on office besides the quarterback in the quarterback. He's he's sure playing like turner. He's he's awfully good all right and that is a one thing i know when you came into the season..

General info about BI SIG with MaryBeth Osborne

"Everybody to the brain injury sig podcast. This is our first podcasts. And we are so excited to have mary beth born as our person that we are interviewing for this podcast so as our inaugural version here. We figured we'd do is talk about the sig in some influent in some Can up-to-date versions of what's going on with the sig. So mary beth is a physical therapist who initially got her degree from the university of north carolina at chapel hill in nineteen eighty nine and then went back a few years later to get her. Dpt in two thousand nine as she has clinical specialization in neurologic. Physical therapy which She was board certified in two thousand fourteen. She has professional experience in a lot of different settings. I'm a large portion of her time in brain injury community based re entry and then supported living program. She was adjunct faculty at unc chapel hill for five years and then has been at university health for five years in their outpatient narrow clinic in serves as the co director of the neuro residency program. She has expertise in the hippo. Therapy and aquatic therapy so. Welcome mary beth. Good to have you thank you. I'm delighted to be the first gassed on your podcast. And help promote the sake right so i guess i should mention the reason why you're here as our guest for the big is that you have quite a lot of experience helping out with the brain injury sig in general in the a n. P. t. on so could you maybe just tell us a little bit about your role in the brain injury sake. Sure i'm the immediate past chair of the brain injury special interest group and served two terms And it was an extra year is well because it was We transitioned from chair. Lacked position which i served that year so i believe it was seven years as the brain injury. Sick share I started as the chair so A lot of people know came back or karen mccullough she nominated nominated me from the floor at a csm meeting and That's when i started being involved with the big. Wow awesome and we thank you for all your work that you've done for the many changes in the accomplishments that you had over the years with it so for people who don't really know the structure of organization of maybe kind of umbrellas. Ap ta in a n. p. t. could you just kinda give a brief Overview of kind of how the brain injury falls into place where really falls amongst the structure of the aneka ti. Of course that abt a has a number of academies sections and so the academy with under which the brain injury special interest group falls is the academy of neurologic physical therapy or a. n. p. t. and so under a. n. p. t. There are eight special interest groups or six and so the brain injury special interest group is one of those eight special interest groups and the intent is just to break down the content area or Interest area of clinicians and their pets Into common interest areas so that the special interest groups kind of interface directly with the membership on a smaller level. Right right thanks. That's really helpful. I think to kind of know where everyone falls in alignment and kind of how they all work together. So the brain injury sig than is part of the a. N. p. t. Does the brain injury saying have its own particular goals or kind of missions or things that it's doing to can help on conditions who are had interested in helping individuals with brain injury. Yeah so the jury's special interest group mission aligns with the economy of neurologic. Pt's mission and is basically. And i'm paraphrasing. But it's basically just a forum to promote health wellness Optimal function and quality of life for individuals with acquired brain injury That's kind of the overall arching thing is to gather people who are interested in providing care and assisting individuals with acquired brain injury From the physical therapy perspective.

I want to congratulate president-elect buydell and vice president-elect harris. us allies around. The world have moved quickly to congratulate president. Joe biden vice president-elect kamala harris on their win even as president trump still refuses to concede the election for countries like canada france and germany. Biden's victory could signal a return to cooperation on alliances like nato and treaties including the paris climate agreement but the prospect of a biden administration seems less promising to more authoritarian leaders with whom president trump ford strong relationships during his time in office including north korea's leader kim jong un brazilian president jair bolsonaro chinese president. Xi jinping who so far have all refrained from publicly congratulating biden and harris. Joining me now is yes means. Sirhan london base staff writer at the atlantic. Thanks for joining us again. As mean thanks for having me also with us. Clouds ladas professor of history and international affairs at the university of north carolina. chapel hill. Klaus good to have you with us. Thank you hello. How are you doing all right. We are in very interesting political moment right now. The president trump has refused to concede and yet president-elect biden is moving forward and the world is noticing clouds. How would you describe the scope. So far of the international reaction to biden's victory well on the whole thing that has been a lot of rejoicing a lot of applause for biden. I think people are hugely relieved that the trump administration will not have a second term and most people are most leaders in in europe and asia and of people in that country's overjoyed. I six they were really getting fed up for the trump administration. It was too dramatic too. Chaotic to unpredictable and people are relieved to see a new administration. I cost you said the administration was dramatic and unpredictable. And i think many americans would agree with you but it continues to be dramatic and somewhat unpredictable. Given the fact that the trump administration is now calling for recounts and investigations into what they allege voter. Inconsistencies are world leaders looking at that and saying anything about that. The fact that they're still Has not been a concession from president trump. Well del shaking their hands. Most of them are shaking the hats but the key for that sorts to themselves because it is no point to interfere in businesses seen as domestic american politics very few people at least very few democratic leaders have any understanding for what is going on in washington. It seems to be pretty obvious that the was of a free and walls not done in a fraudulent way at all and over. Four million people can vote for biden Rather than for trump's majority will lots of for millions of popular vote. He won miss. Four million people and the people have accepted. That biden is president-elect. And booby the new president but they are. You know wondering what's going on in washington but hardly anyone is actually surprised. At the trump administration would embark on such a course of action because that fits in with what is administration was like chaotic dramatic unpredictable and quite irrational to some extent mean given what klaus just laid out there in terms of the continued reaction to the world leaders at least us allies. Saying you know okay. We'll watch what's happening and see how this all plays out. How much of the reaction you think is excitement about biden himself versus relief about removing president trump from office. It's a great question. I mean it's worth noting An and i thought can of clauses overview spot on that you know for a lot of world biden is a very familiar character He certainly not new to the world stage. I think it was in. Benjamin netanyahu the israeli prime ministers congratulations that he noted that he's known biden for forty years. And i think a lot of world leaders know biden. So it's i. I think probably if i had to guess my assessment would be that it's probably the latter. I think a lot of i think a lot of the protests you are seeing in the us in the days after the result was finally announced was probably fell at least to me is an american observing from afar like a lot more relief than necessarily you know excitement. This isn't to say that you know. Folks don't like biden or unexcited to see him at the helm on his set a recognizable figure. But i think the world generally kind of just took a big sigh of relief that you know here returns a. Us option that recognizes. The us is traditional role in the world and will hopefully be kind of retaking that spot on the international stage. And yasmin. you are in london. Where prime minister. Boris johnson has had a strong relationship with president trump. How do you think this relationship between the us and the uk will evolve under a biden administration. It's a really good question. There's certainly been a lot of chatter about that very thing here kind of leading up to the us election and now after that we knew the result i think there is some conjecture that you know obviously as you just said President trump and prime minister. Johnson had a pretty good relationship. I think a lot of that stemmed from the fact that president trump was quite a big supporter of brexit. And you know. I think kind of quite appreciated the sort of comparisons between him and johnson superficial is some of the may be particularly. I think he quite liked references to johnson. As britain trump some remembering correctly and there has been some talk about some potential tensions between biden administration and johnson's downing street. I'm particularly with regard to brexit. Biden has been very clear about his support for the good friday agreement and opposing anything that would undermine it. And i think there's also some talk about how you know johnson before he was prime minister had made some comments with regard to president obama's support for britain staying in the eu. Where i think he made comments about obama's kenyan ancestry in how he had an ancestral dislike of the british empire so these are no doubt comments that administration would probably remember well. But i think it's worth noting that you know. These are things. I do not think are going to shake up the uk us relationship. In a major way. I think there's a lot more that And biden share particularly with regard to issues like climate change like the iran deal and. Yeah i mean. I think more broadly i would expect pretty good. Relations between the us and the uk going forward While it's certainly true. That trump and johnson had had a decent relationship I think you know the uk is is certainly a country that would see its relationship with the us being important irrespective of who's empower claus does not same theory hold true for other. You leaders like angela. Merkel for example and wilma call who themselves had troubled relationships with president trump. And who i can imagine so far are somewhat relieved to see this New administration elect. Yeah the But regarding johnson outside that johnson dossier a little insecure. He was the first international leader. I believe who fold up biden and congratulate him. They said i think that shows the level of insecurity and also abidance irish background. Bill make him wonder how. how how much you consult poured onto the united states in the future and the united vendor the united kingdom needs a trade. Deal the us. And i think he is for it. You know i think he would probably have seen a second trump administration as being more helpful regarding angela merkel and other european leaders. They certainly were relieved. Undiplomatic led a very bad relationship with trump or with raza. Put it the other way. Round a macro tried in various locations to make overtures to trump it was trump really rejected it who couldn't really in the end stand. Angela merkel nothing kid. He had a problem with female leaders. You had the problem as lead us. Who voted much more open to immigration and to do something about asylum people who were looking for asylum in their countries and he could understand and he also criticised the eu including germany for its huge trade deficit of us united states or rather to the united states of course had trade deficit busy you and he almost criticized the eu and it's trade policies. As much as he did china he called the eu. Actually a foe. Which is you know really surprising that you consider your most longest standing allies in the world that you suddenly regard them. As foes at least in trade relations. So underline michael and the german establishment as well as the french and other foreign policies tablets in europe are usually relieved that they see the end of the trump administration and us yes-men just that biden has a very good reputation. He is regarded to be quite honest as perhaps a little too old for the job but on the other hand is a centrist is not extreme is on the last notes of right people know him they a appreciate his his personality is a people person you some would say. Here's a backslapping sort of politician but much more extrovert much. More outgoing and much more ready to compromise than Trump was so all that shouting at nato summits or g seven summits all that Very bad atmosphere attention. The you know the almost talk about to break up of nato and talk about that trump wanted to undermine the quesion of political union of the european union all that will be a thing of the past because by and his administration can be expected to be very constructive to what nate to enter to you however having said that may the last sort biden will also insist on the european spending more money on their defense efforts so he will not be softer regarding nate and regarding the defense efforts of the europeans and here europe really needs to do something because that is an old complaint which goes back to the obama administration and before that wasn't actually unique to the trump administration. And the you know that they are very reluctant to spend more on defense. But i think a practice the president biden will actually be more successful in persuading them at. That would be the right thing to do as you mentioned. Joe biden's age. And i think that that's something that we must talk about because if something happens to joe biden we could be looking at a president kamala harris. And i'm wondering this is something that came up yesterday in our conversation about The role that black women played in american democracy in electing joe biden. We've seen kamala harris the first woman of color to ever sit in that role that i wonder how she will be received by world leaders. Yasmine your thoughts on that yet. It's a good question. I mean i think you know. Obviously that history-making of of her being elected the first female of vice president of colors obviously huge certainly noteworthy among a lot of the congratulations. that were received. I think it was prime minister. Narendra modi of india who actually dedicated an entire tweet just tacoma harris herself And i think the reason for that is is obvious. Obviously her indian heritage. He he sees that is is an opportunity to further strengthen the relationship between india and the us. but yeah. i mean. I don't know i would anticipate We as you say. Given president-elect biden's age that kamala harris could have a more hands on role than previous vice presidents that we've seen In in for that reason we may find that world leaders will quickly get to know come harris in a way that perhaps they didn't get to know vice presidents of the past and it seems just based on the comments that we've seen uncle mirko also an a made a comment about looking forward to meeting a kamala harris that we could expect that you know the world will be paying attention to both of them very much. Not just biden klaus What's been the reaction From china and president xi jinping so far there hasn't been much of a reaction. Xi jinping has kept quiet. We don't quite know why this speculation that perhaps xi jinping want antagonize the trump administration while it is still in office. The course and ten weeks you can do a lot of arm. And he knows that relations between china and the united states are difficult as they are that will continue to be difficult under the biden administration. So he's keeping a low profile on the social media in china have however been lots of comments. Some people really regretful that Trump is leaving because it made the united states weaker. It created a vacuum in international affairs which was appreciated by some observers in china as us believe you know it is much better to have a more stable more predictable government even if that government is perhaps more strategic in its relations with china. But they appreciate that proper possible predictability and international affairs so essentially. It's difficult to say what the leadership actually things and we will have to wait until eventually shipping and The foreign ministry in beijing will come out with a statement but they will do so nothing at the latest one set to mastic insecurity about the election. Outcome has been resolved than they of course will congratulate her joe biden and kabila harris now of course Clouds one country that we know has been watching the disarray In the united states or at least the tension in the united states has been russia. What have we heard if anything from vladimir putin and or his administration so far the gun russia's keeping a low profile putin hasn't congratulated i them and He is keeping quiet. Does not much coming out of russia but the they of course are disappointed. That trump did not win the second term. And there's been talk about disinformation campaigns. Not quite as much as two sixteen but russia did its bid to perhaps enable second trump victory and trump. However the to be quite. Frank hasn't been soft on russia. The administration perhaps not the president. Personally who always had such soft spot for putin and very confidential talks with him and no one really knows. What when on doing these talks but when you look at his policy his administration's policies towards a russia that wasn't soft all imposed over forty times a new sanctions on russia. So he the administration actually hasn't been soft on putin. But i believe that russia fears of fields that the unpredictability and the chaos and the. Let's say less focused way. of the trump administration than what could you can normally expect from an american administration that that in the end helped a russia that often the president Closed both ice and that influenced also of foreign policy. Make us in his administration like the state department. Yes maine another Interesting figure here is israeli prime minister benjamin netanyahu who has been a very close ally of president trump And that even translated into votes here. In the united states for the president from certain jewish orthodox communities. He congratulated joe biden and comma harris this past weekend. What do you expect to see from. Benjamin netanyahu in the near term when it comes to us. Israeli relations under a joe biden. I think this is something. That doesn't just apply to benjamin netanyahu but leeds had good relationships with president trump. I think narendra modi also falls into this category. And even figures like victor or bonham road regurgitate both of whom have also congratulated President elected biden But you know. I think he's a netanyahu in particular is a leader who obviously has a vested interest in maintaining a good. Us israel relationship irrespective of. Who's in the white house. It's no secret that obviously he benefited quite a lot. From having president trump in the white house the the moving of the us embassy to jerusalem being obviously one of those Kind of hallmark examples of a win for him That said He obviously you know. He recognizes that an admin the administration is changing. And i think he wants to shore up that relationship. But you know there's it it's been reported That the trump administration is hoping to kind of work with the israelis to sort of applies more punitive measures on tehran. Before trump leaves the white house in the form of sanctions to kind of make it more difficult for biden to return to the iran nuclear deal and try to bring that back it. This isn't to say that. Netanyahu and biden would necessarily see eye to eye on a lot of things i think we would probably see under a biden administration a return to the bit of the more traditional tone that we've known the us to take these israel Opposition to settlement expansion. That sort of thing support for a two state solution but indeed it will not be as rosy of friendship As we've seen between that and your home trump that's for sure we should also note that President trump's administration was also very close with bolsonaro of brazil. Both are considered to have really supported Populist movements and i'm wondering whether or not Desirable not who's also refrained from Congratulating harrison biden on their win and other populist movements across the world are looking at this and saying well maybe this is signals a change. Here i think it's definitely a loss for them. It's a setback. Because you know. I think particularly for leaders like bolsonaro. Who really sort of you know played on his relationship with president trump domestically I think this is a loss because you know even before particularly with populist movements even in places on like brazil where they aren't in power they could turn and look to president trump until their supporters. Look you know he's able to achieve this in the united states so we can achieve at here if know the greatest the most powerful leader in the world can do this that we can do this where we are so without question. I think it's it's a setback for them They lose that. You know that key ally in the white house But that said i think you know populous leaders like minded leaders to trump. Who could potentially take that narrative and sort of utilize it in their favor so While it is a loss for them. I don't necessarily think that it will end. Sort of their relationship trump or or will end them using trump is sort of an example to their benefit. Yes means seer. Han is a london.

"All right, Andy. Let's answer some questions to kick things off this week from our listeners throughout the area. First up today is Stan. From Chapel Hill, Stan says. We're looking for an affordable starter home. Can you point me in the direction of some areas or neighborhoods? That would be a good fit for a first time home buying couple? With no kids planned for the near future. We would prefer a house and our budget is $200,000. So stand great question. You know, when you want to make sure that whenever you're buying your first home that you stay within a comfort level in a budget that meets your needs, because the last thing we want is for anyone to be house poor person right in a 200,000 price point is a great point. Our starting point, you know, for first time pyre. So if you're trying to stay in Chapel Hill, it is going to be a little bit tougher for you just to be very transparent and to educate you on the market. In Chapel Hill is Faras thie available homes that are under 200,000 price point. The only thing you're really going to find more than likely is going to be a condo, which there's nothing wrong with a condo. You know, the great thing about a condo as being a starter home is there's going to be less maintenance for you. Just because you own from the walls in. So you actually have your H away management company who is maintaining the grounds exterior, you know, And that's I would say the hardest thing about homeownership, especially for a first time home owner is wait a minute. I have to keep take care of this stuff when something breaks so a condom might be a great option. But there are some neighborhoods you know that have condos under that 200,000 mark, for example, like thinly force condos right under 200,000. That's a larger condo. It's around like 12 50 Square feet. We then have some smaller units. There's for example, Hamlin Park condos. You know they're going to be under 1000 Square feet can get those around 1 30 Mark. And then there's also Shepherd Lane, which is a well known condominium development. Those R I lived in Shepherd Lane once. I did, I did. I own it II sub. Let it an apartment there or a condo there. I think it was between my want to say that was leading into Junior year so immature, sophomoric junior years I spent I rented Ah was my first off campus like true renting on your own kind of set up and it was from when on awesome lady who had this like It was. It was a little studio her her place for a little studio. And it was so cool because you know this is 6 2007 some somewhere in that range and she had like a 65 inch TV. In this little 400 square foot studio, So I mean, it was like enormous and she had this movie library and never living the life the bed. I would just roll out of the bed literally onto the couch. So the couch was like backed up to the edge of the bed is suddenly 400 square feet. I don't remember exactly how much it may have even been lesson at one time looking at they're they're 100. So they are smaller. But the the that area that that group of condos is, they're all different. If I remember correctly, I mean, my memory may be a little fuzzy here, but that's wonderful. Yeah, it was a little tiny corner unit. It was It was awesome. I love it. I love this. Yeah, small world is actually a great spot. It's right across the street from what used to be university mall. And now I guess was university place. I call it now. But it was a great spot to be in right off of Estes Drive. So yeah, it's a good spot in Chapel Hill on affordable way to be in Chapel Hill. That's for sure. Exactly exactly. And just let you know to you know, I was mentioned only the act of homes. Now there is a possibility of finding like a detached home or a townhome. They're super Super limited, but they are out there. But if one comes on the market, it's going quick. If you're trying to stay in chapel in under 200,000, so you know it's always great to get set up on a search and our team. We can do that for you to set you up in a search. That's not only sending you active list things, but also the coming soon listings. Just so you're well aware of what's up in coming. And so we could be the first one to get out there because I mean If you miss it, even by you know, it's been on the market even a day or two. It's gone, you know, and luncheons probably with multiple offer. So yeah, There are some great opportunities for some starter homes. You know, in Chapel Hill under that 200 price point, Of course, our team would love to guide you and assist you with that. It was a really fun summer living there like that area lot, so not a bad place to start. That's for sure. Whether renting or in your case, stand looking to buy a place. That's a fun little area. They're so great question. And thank you, Stan. That's a common when Angie right people ask you all the time. Hey, here's my budget. We're kind of go. You know, where is a good spot for me to look and you're able to run those searches and kind of look must definitely talk. We have access. Remember, too. It's a confusing sometimes When people say what listings do you have? You know, And we might not even have any available listings like personally our firm in that specific area of price point. But remember, we have access to everything in the triangle am Alas, it was not just our listings. We have access to everyone's inventory. So no matter you know what you're looking for area Price point, whatever might be, we can pull that information from our MLS database here in the triangle, and we also have access to the Matrix. MLS is well, which is kind of more of the Sanford. They until for she's kind a little bit more south. We are a member of that. And Melissa's. Well, We have an agent who actively works that area. So you know, no matter where you looking at, we can help out. That's a great point. Good question. Stan and Angie thank you for mentioning Shepherd Lane and taking me down memory lane Little bit.

"On a Tuesday. It's all things considered from NPR News. I'm Mary Louise Kelly in Washington and I'm Leila folded in Los Angeles today brought a sudden reversal in the story of the male and the vote. Postmaster General Lewis to Joy announced that he's suspending his controversial cost cutting plans at the U. S. Postal Service. The move comes amid bipartisan pressure and reports of slowdowns in mail delivery around the country. Those delays were particularly alarming for election officials, who are expecting an unprecedented number of Americans to cast votes by mail this year due to the pandemic. We're joined now by NPR's miles parks, her cover's voting issues. Hi, miles. Hi there, so first off, what exactly did the postmaster announced today? So if you remember D Joy came to the Postal Service earlier this summer in May after leading a private logistics company for more than 30 years, and he had promised this sort of organizational realignment aimed it saving money. Some of those changes had gone into effect already had already started, some major, fairly major mailed always across the country. But he essentially said today that that transformation he's planning is now on hold until after November's presidential election to avoid even the appearance of any impact on election male, he said in the statement. I am suspending these initiatives until after the election is concluded. Over the past few weeks we've heard from postal workers and others who've said the's changes made it impossible to deliver mail on time. Does today's announcement mean that service will get better? It's still a little unclear, He says sorting machines will not be removed in overtime will be approved quote as needed. But a number of watchdog groups have already released statements saying they aren't satisfied. Because a lot of these policies that Detroit implemented when he first got on board, we're not super transparent from the beginning. It's still hard to know exactly what today's announcement means. It's not clear whether the sorting machines that were already removed, for instance, are going to be returned or whether just no more sorting machines are going to be removed. Here's former deputy Postmaster General Ron Stroman. Talking about today's statement. It raises war questions, Then it provides answers, and it will be important in coming days to see if we can get clarity with regard Teo to those questions. Lawmakers will get a chance to get some of those answers on Friday and Monday when the joyous scheduled for congressional hearings Now this is a pretty dramatic reversal. What sort of political pressure were the joy and the Trump Administration under It was really extraordinary. How quickly lawmakers and the public took hold of this issue. You know, it's fairly walkie to be talking about the USPS just a couple months before a presidential election, But it points to what we've seen in public opinion polls that the USPS is the federal government entity that people generally like the most. The entire Democratic Party was galvanised by this, with some lawmakers like Senator Bernie Sanders, even calling for the joy to resign. A number of Republicans asked him to reverse the changes. Too many of them represent rural parts of the country where even if people are skeptical of voting by mail because of what President Trump has said they still might be more dependent than urban voters on the mail for things like prescriptions. So more than half of voters were expected to cast ballots by mail this fall. How nervous should they be about returning their ballots via the Postal Service? Joyce specifically said in the statement that the Postal Service is ready to handle whatever volume of election mail received this fall. And that's obviously a very different message from what President Trump has said where he's basically said the USPS is not equipped. Do that. The biggest message coming from election officials and experts is that voters should not be scared. They just need to be early with your request with mailing it back. Don't wait until the last minute on any of this stuff. That's what Canetti you into trouble is waiting up until the deadline. You need to just get that ballot in the mail and give the post office timeto work. That's NPR's Miles. Parks. Thank you. Thank you. In North Carolina. They tried the state's flagship school, UNC Chapel Hill, began the school year with in person classes. Then came Cove in 19 outbreaks in three dorms and a frat house in the first week. Yesterday, the university abandoned plans to have students on campus starting tomorrow. Classes will move online. Let's hear directly from Chapel Hill where Mimi Chapman is chair of the faculty and joins us now, Professor Chapman. Welcome. Thanks for having me How disappointed as everybody in Chapel Hill. Well, it's a heartbreaking situation. This's not where we wanted to be. We were very hopeful that a plan could work. Although You certainly as the summer wore on, and we weren't seeing the kinds of decreases in the virus around country that we had hoped. Ah, tensions and anxieties ramped up. Even as the campus was opening walk me through. How this last week has unfolded at the first sign of trouble was word of clusters into residence halls. Yes, that's correct. I think you know, certainly is faculty. We began hearing about this on Friday. I began hearing about it on Friday morning. I think it was on probably on Thursday Thursday night as I understand it that all of the contact tracing and that sort of thing was going on. So ascertaining exactly where these clusters were and who who needed to be. Tested in isolated and that sort of thing there. You surprised it unraveled so quickly. I guess. You know, I'm really sad that it unraveled so quickly. I There were an awful lot of students. If you walk around our campus, there were so many students that were doing a good job of wearing masks and doing what they needed to do from what I could see. It is also clear and we heard this from the earliest days that there were a lot of off campus activities, some of them related to the Greek system that were flying in the face of all recommendations, and so distancing masks that type thing. Exactly. Yeah, So, and those were big parties, and they were hosting first year students and students that lived on campus. And so at least as I understand it, the current thinking is that that is how it got back into the dorms. I was struck by a headline in the student newspaper, The Daily Tar Heel. They had an editorial yesterday with the headline. UNC has a disaster on its hands. Except they used a considerably more profane word that I can't say on air than disaster. Right? I saw that. Ah, from where you're sent it from the faculty perspective. Did they get it right? I think it is just I think it's more complicated than that. I mean, I I certainly understand the outrage and the anger and yes, there are many faculty members that Um, shared that outrage and anger. But it is a complicated calculus and I don't know. That the student newspaper has investigated that, quite to the extent that they might You're suggesting that intentions here were good, even if the way it all has all played out has not been away. Anyone would have wanted it too. Is there Is there a lesson learned here Or does this just underscore? How very, very difficult in person tuition is going to be in the middle of a pandemic? Um Yes. I mean, I think that you know, Human sea has some of the best public health infectious disease. Folks in the country Health communications. If we can't bring those resources to bear in the way that we did with a successful result, I think it should give every other large public university in the country pause before going forward. And in that way, I hope that our experience will be a real service to the country. And indeed how perhaps the federal government needs to think about these things and help institutions of higher learning Preserve all that they offer and the economic engine that they are, even if they have to take as what? We've called it an off ramp. Professor Mamie Chapman. She chairs the faculty at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, which has just announced it is abandoning plans to have students on campus on moving to a fully online model for the rest of the semester..

"Your experience in Chapel Hill. Many things I like about that. But let me just invite you to begin that well. At that time, I knew I didn't know so much When I came to Bennett as a fresh woman about what I wanted to do was sort of big. I want to teach, and I'll go back home and teaching wise. But by the time I had studied with Dr Jarod on Dr Crawford that I was I wanted to do. Really, really. I wanted to work and later I wanted to be an English teacher. I want to study English. And I knew that I needed to go to graduate school. At least I had been encouraged by Dr Jerry to go to graduate school and Dr Crawford and after Elizabeth saw who came later and she thought I wrote, Will that always pleased me and she said Go to She was an Englishwoman later. Left Bennett. I think and work, and she and I have until that time, I never could figure out how this worked. But if one wanted to go to graduate school prior to that, prior to my time's coming, and this was just changing when I heard you, the CD just beginning to change. If one were black, you could you could fly to the states after you had been accepted at in Northern University on the state, of course, with pay away now, so I brought the application to desegregate and two key enter and to have you in the classes stare so Wait. You know that history, you know James MEREDITH at Ole Miss, and all of that, my father and mother said to me if you want to go to grad school. I'm a taxpayer. My dad said so. And this was My mom really pushed this idea. Go to tap for him. Now. This is after citizens. You see, not that So Now it's Go to Chapel Hill. I think my mom thought all right. She she can't do it. He's okay. So Mom was a little less never talked to me about Bennett and citizens. She did say she wanted me to go to Chapel Hill. And she said, because you'll be nearer home and I didn't believe that I thought she was kind of proud that I would go to attack him. So I did. I would There's a funny story about Capitol Hill have left here and I went to Hartford, Connecticut, where I lived with my sister and brother in law. And I worked as waitress there, but they met sister took all of my money. She took all of my money Every week should take my money. And then when I came back, got ready to come back to Chapel Hill. She cashed one. She gave me my money that was enforced Savings and she took me shopping. And my sisters and brothers were always very kind to me. Well, I came home. And then before I got home, I had called to Chapel Hill to asked to apply for graduate housing, and I was going to stay in the dorm and yes, and they asked that I fill out the form. They mailed it to me too hard for that mailed it backs and yes, I would like a roommate and so they send to me my room assignment and said, I should appear. It's a certain place on a certain day to pick up the key. And I said forward my mind deposit, etcetera. So in a day, my dad took me and my mom, we are and my brother. We drove down my sister. We drove down and I went to the place and I got I said Aye, Mr. Alexandre, I'm here to get my key and it was a look of absolute. Constant nation on the woman's face. And she finally said You can't be Esther Alexander. And it kind of confused me Amadeu because, you know Yes, I know Mr Alexander. As it turned out, you know what she had done. She had not known that I was black, and she had Paired me with a white room. And there was a ruling at Chapel Hill at that time that that was not to be quite know what to do with me now. Oh, boy, This is not the best way to enter school, but I learned something that day..

"Is a U. N. C. Chapel Hill graduate she's a Raleigh resident in a first time author she's also a sexual assault survivors that's what our new book is about it's a memoir it's titled beats and it follows her journey from victim to survivor and she opens up and talks about the attack the effort to get justice as well as how she's worked to put her life back together and overcome the trauma not the book again it's called beads that's going to be released on Tuesday Rachel joins me in studio today with a a bit of a preview we'll talk about that Rachel welcome I appreciate you coming into to talk about and share your story thank you so much for having me twenty seventeen saw the creation of a hash tag and movement online that forced the issue of sexual assault into the spotlight what was your reaction to the topic of me to suddenly going viral stout when that hash tag movement started I really it told me I was so surprised to see so many people talking about the topic of rape and sexual assault just something you expected right to come up eight cents my attack a it was never something that I saw was overly reported on people didn't really talk about it it was kind of a taboo subject and so when the me too movement essentially just took the world by storm I was really blown away at the number of women and men coming forward talking specifically at the forefront just about Harvey wine scene I think he was really that the one that that broke this open and then it just escalated from there with the U. N.'s get that USA gymnastics scandal yeah celebrities and then all of a sudden you start seeing more and more local folks coming forward and it's on the news and not just in Hollywood but in cities all across the country and the world for that matter and I really started to think to myself this might be the perfect opportunity for me to come forward with my story to see if I can help others and and make a difference with with the things that I went through many years prior okay so that was twenty seventeen as me too is is gaining steam and and and taking off so let's do this and let's go back to June two thousand eight that's was when you were attacked if you're comfortable with with that today what you tell us about what happened and and walk us through walk us through your experience sure so it was June two thousand eight I had just graduated from UNC Chapel Hill and it may couple weeks prior and I had moved to Washington DC to work on an internship with that big accounting firm up in Arlington and I was living in apartment with my boy a friend at the time we had decided to go our separate ways one Saturday I went out with hi a cousin of mine and a couple of her girlfriends and the night was a lot of find we went out right in the district we were drinking we went out to a lot of local bars we had decided to call it a night go back to her apartment and unfortunately my boyfriend and I were we were fighting and during this fight we the there were tears and hang ups than I had ultimately decided that I was going to spend the night at my cousin's apartment until I got that one last phone call from my boyfriend asking me to please come home to make that and I think as any young girl in love would do I I did just that I I decided to call a cab and make my way back to Alexandria I call the cab and waited for a good while I was outside and it was well lit I felt safe and car rolls up I wasn't too familiar with cabs as I was from Chapel Hill desk may have banned the second or third cat that I'd taken in my life I got in and this man the driver who I thought was the cab driver was talking on his cell phone to what I thought was a customer I'm just talking about the fact that he was gonna be about fifteen minutes taking me back to my apartment and unfortunately he was the farthest thing from a cab driver he was a complete monster he pulled over on the side of the highway I had no idea where I was it was very very early in the morning he got off the phone turned off the car and next thing I know he has pulled out a knife and that's on top of me whispering the words if you try to get away if you scream I will kill you and so I thought that that was it for me at twenty two years old I envisioned my face being the one that's broadcast said on CNN as as a girl who had gone missing or has been murdered and I I truly thought that I was not going to make it out alive that night were you present in the moment were you seen yourself through your eyes yeah the seniors from from above right no not necessarily from above Jess I'm thinking all of these things very vividly in my head and that this was at I was not going to make it out of this car this man had a knife but I had no idea what other weapons he might have and he proceeded to sexually assault me and that I single handedly became the worst day of my entire life what happens next I knew immediately that I wanted to preserve as much evidence as possible I wanted to report I needed to get to a hospital I did not want this man to get away with what he had just done were you able to escape from the vehicle or did you drop you so what was the real cab driver so he was not a real cab driver he did eventually get back on his side of the car dropped me off about a block from my apartment and I was able to accept the Kerr safely he didn't take any of my belongings he didn't rob me of anything physical that was not his motivation he just had one thing on his mind and he accomplished at and then let me go and so after I meet like after exiting the car I called nine one one and came across a police officer in Alexandria who sent me to the district oz sexual assault unit in downtown DC and so in my mind I'm thinking this is our nation's capital I am going to the best of the best this is the sexual assault unit in downtown Washington DC and when I arrived I immediately started feeling like a statistic I was not to believe I had two detectives who took me into a room by myself they were picking apart everything imaginable hours after the rape itself or is this is about is after this is about an hour after they were going through my phone trying to get at the fact that I was trying to make my boyfriend jealous we were in this big fight looking at text messages that I had received from male friends telling me I was just drunk because I couldn't recall where this attack took place whether it was in Virginia or DC this is shocking to hear it's it's it's shocking to hear that you would go to authorities for helping you find that they're not they're not acting as your allies correct I was essentially interrogated and assumed to be lying rather than assume to be a victim asking for help and that is why is so shocking to me I have vivid memories of sitting in this room and the priest saying and just trying to think of more ways that I could tell them that I was telling the truth I couldn't explain to them and not off that I was a good person I had come from a very good family I had just graduated from college I would not lie about something like that hi this is not where I wanted to be at five AM in the morning on a Sunday and every attempt that I made to try and tell that my truth I was asked another interrogating question about how much I drink what I was wearing who I was with what what my wife and I were fighting about this was you know a a very rare situation and the fact that my rape occurred I with it it my attacker was a member of a of a of a different race and it was someone that I did not know and so statistically speaking rapes typically happen where the victim knows their attacker and because I had these stats going against me this was almost sounded like this man jumped out of the bush as and he was the scary boogie man in the night with a weapon and he raped me and that is exactly how it how it lies that are just not taking your hairdresser not taking it they're they're not taking my word and unfortunately in the district at the time I had to have a police report before I could go to the hospital so I'm sitting there in the midst of this interrogation if you well I'm very dirty I have not eaten anything I have not had anything to drink I have not brush my teeth showered nothing because I knew that I needed to keep and preserve everything that was on me because I was full of evidence what was your experience with law enforcement prior to this you know I had never really had much experience with law enforcement I I always it valued law enforcement I took them for a day they enforce the law they they're they're the good guys right they're the ones that you call if you're in trouble and they will come help you I never would have imagined having an experience like I did you hear about these things but to actually go through it was very it was very very traumatic for me that's gonna do number just in on you in terms of of trust yeah you you just had a a a life altering experience an attack a sexual assault yeah and then the people that are supposed to be on your side or or helping you could catch the bad guy here yeah they're not believing you they are not and I'm and I am sitting there telling them in a desk this man is out he is roaming the streets I did not I did not get his license plate I I didn't know where this happened but all of those all the facts that I was trying to present were then just really turned back against me they were not they were not helping me in any way they they took my statement so I was thankful for that they've they've filed my report again so I was thankful for that I think in today's world there are there a this is talked about so much more with with for example the Netflix series unbelievable where she is actually charged with filing a false report thankfully that did not happen in my case but looking back I would not have been surprised if that had happened and I found myself having to we can't but the problem was is that I was not going to recap my story never changed throughout the whole course of my experience with the justice system and I I think that that ultimately worked in my favor because finally I was able to break thrill and and and have people in law enforcement believe me but that was not until a couple of years later it's a sensitive topic on around the triangle this week we're speaking with author Rachel Brooks she's a a local author she lives in north Raleigh and her book is called beads it comes out Tuesday you can pre order it now in it's a memoir about Rachel's journey as she goes from sexual assault victim she's talking about that happening back in two thousand eight to becoming a sexual assault survivors and now it as she speaks out about the realities in and challenges that survivors just like her face tell me a little bit about your decision to go public with the story and then then we'll catch up with the the law enforcement action to catch the bad guy here sure so after my case and dead I knew that I wanted to speak about what happened to me I knew that I wanted to help others whether that was helping them to report or helping them as a just a person to talk to or helping to even prevent this from happening and so I connected with a local nonprofit organization here in Raleigh called interact and I was very fortunate to join their volunteer hi training and I became a survivor speaker for them and sense Joe dies since January of two thousand.

They do wear a lot of khaki and like the same pair of pleaded dockers to everyone got one when they're born, you know what? Maybe maybe you could maybe take it back because you're right. There are a lot of khakis in Chapel Hill. I'm still going to say Chapel Hill, but you've made me question it. I can't think of another one, though.

That course cuts in the newsroom music, director producer, Tom grooving. It's all good. I don't know if you're grooving or not and there's twenty just yesterday. I left the station. I was up in the Westerville drove up to my home course, Chapel Hill, and then got home I saw in the last twelve hours. No in the last eighteen hours. I've seen gas prices anywhere from two thirty one to two seventy five it's pretty rare. When you get that wide of a spread in central Ohio seems like they usually all go up together. And then they kind of trickled down they might be a couple of pennies off and that so I don't know if the two seventy five is a sense that he bound another bounces coming or you know, if it's gonna plane down, and that's just the odd one. I'm not sure. But when you talk about that, and then you add to it. Now, the gas tax Scott was talking about it there in the news. We know the new rates gonna take effect July. First that'll be in the throes of the summer driving season in you know, with what we've got right now. I don't know how high it's going to go. Plus, you talk all the way through all that stuff. I mean, you remember Mike dewine the governor was on our show and said, you know, we gotta have got an eighteen cents. You know, he declared emergency in. I think it was thirty maybe thirty three thirty two. You know, like eastern south eastern, Ohio counties says, you know, the heavy rain, and they're still bridges washed out, and they're still a flooding and all that stuff. And then the roads are bad, and it's about safety and all that stuff. Gotta have it. Gotta have it. Gotta have it. Gotta have it. Gotta have it. Gotta have it settled for ten and a half cents. Now. You know, it's the fatter side of it. But did we really got to have it or not? Apparently, not and then the whammy that. I don't remember anybody talking about until recently as the nineteen cents bump for diesel. And that's the one that you're like now, I get it is the old Switzerland. So, you know, you can talk about politicians and politics, and, you know, people say what people say, but this is why I try to keep most of them at arm's length because you know, they're there to represent the people, and they're there to do the stuff. But instead of just coming out saying there is no compromise. We got to have this money because it's about safety in your family and your kids. It's like, okay, we're gonna compromise. But then we're gonna put nineteen cents a gallon on diesel. And you know, where that money's coming from right out of your pocket, just like the ten and a half cents on the regular gas because anything that gets trucked in anything that uses diesel. Bam. They're not eating that cost. They're going to pass that ride along. So you're going to see gas prices go up you're going to see diesel prices, go up. But then you're also going to see your food and your goods and all that stuff go up because the trucking costs, and it's just like when does it end when it's never gonna end, they just keep wanting more and more and more and more and more and more and more. It's how it is. And it just I don't know. It's just the nature at which they come at it. You know, they just they say we compromise. And everyone smiles and Patsy chapter on the back.

"Because number one, I got to talk and number two. I got to get into all the games for free and needed to do was just tell people what's happening. So of always been interested in sharing information explaining things as I see them, and and also been curious about about human behavior. So the racquet ball racquet injury shattered tooth number nine, you know, my upper my upper left central incisors. So after the root canal post in core crown at age sixteen that started to pique my interest in dentistry, and my dentist. Fortunately, was extremely nice and very accommodating and welcome to me into his office to discuss the profession and at that point. I realized that I said, okay, I'm going to be a dentist. So as I started my journey through, you know, through college at UNC Chapel Hill. Funny thing happened. I thought it I I I've got to be a chemistry major biology major too to become a dentist because it's a it's a scientific thing. Right. Will I realized pretty quickly after looking at the curriculum for chemistry or biology that it wasn't necessarily going to contribute to me being a fantastic dentist. So I happen to be sitting in a psychology course. And I was just sitting there. And I was like this is amazing. This is exactly what I've always been interested in. Why do people do what they do? Why do they not do what they don't do? And what drives decisions and behavior. So I instantly became a psychology major, which I believe Gary has helped me more than just about anything else in dentistry from a marketing standpoint, and from a communication standpoint, it's really all about psychology. When you when you boil it down, the science is incredibly important, and that's the technical stuff. And that's the how to do. It stuff, but the getting people to do it stuff is pure psychology. So I love your perspective. I feel like we're kindred spirits. Chris are like brothers from a different mother. Didn't right? And you know, and we share we share a similar hairstylist. Yeah. Absolutely. Yeah. I think as God is my hairstylist. Well, actually, I have a French hairstylist her earn her name's Gillette. Probably heading that way.

I Cameron Johnson. Part of the team for two seasons. But gosh made such a big impact in those two years and having his best season as a collegian player. Well, you really is having a great year knock on wood. So I'm himself in the head there. But shooting the ball Nebraska's gotten better defense, LIZA better rebounder is not hurting this year last year. He played all year hurt. Just phenomenal young man, really really good basketball player and much better human being and young miniature like to be around. Kenny Williams originally committed to a different school. But after a coaching change open that recruitment backup came to Carolina and has been an indispensable part of your team in program. Most emotional leader, we have the most vocal leader. We have the best defensive player on the perimeter. We have leads our team in taking charges in saying the right things to right time and his shot the ball in the basket. A lot force has a shot at nearly as well this year hoping he'll make a bunch of them forced today. But another great great young, man. Coach Luke maye did not come to Carolina is a highly rated recruit, but he's gonna leave with some incredible accomplishments both on the. Yeah.

And we can't wait to dig in on some college basketball. And who knows what else you got it Carolina in the pines and because of the rate Tom swaps being in its final, you're covering the ACC. I was just as, you know, Duke for the possibly the last time, you never know what our business Paul. You know, you never know for right, Tom.

We'll we'll they honor you at halftime at the dean do. No. I don't think. So I believe right com will be honored. However, I believe the company will as they should Jimmy Rayburn who's done. Worked for almost forty years. You know, both the SEM ACC will. And it's I think last week for the first time a lot of fans, and they got a little bit of mileage in the press that this was the final year because of the last Duke Carolina game that we're going to cover and the realization, I think within the confines of of rape sports. Like, oh my God. This is the end, you know, we're going to close it out in solid where the company is is located and you move on. This is one of those rare occasions in my career, Paul where I actually outlets did the gig. Yeah, that's unusual. Normally normally don't only on.

It was a marvelous run and the people at rate com were just tremendous and were part of my career. Even before I started doing the see. In fact, my first they see game was actually on ESPN not rake on. But we're not for Tom. I wouldn't have gotten the opportunity at SPN. And of course, everything kind of fell together.

"He is in a nineteen eighty nine interview talking about Deadheads there everything from St. people to. Solid professionals. They're all over the place. They're they're Chapel Hill. You know, they're they're part of the heart and lung team out in Sacramento. They're everywhere. They're they do they're they've permeate society. You know, they've they've become. Mainstream in a way, Jerry Garcia speaking at a nineteen eighty nine interview. And Casey he is right on the Capitol Hill piece because house speaker Nancy Pelosi is a fan of the Grateful Dead. Mickey Hart was that her recent swearing in ceremony where she became speaker of the house for the second time one of the only lawmakers to be speaker of the house twice. So it would seem like Jerry Garcia was right thirty years ago, and he's right now. Yeah. Isn't it something the appeal also seems to be bipartisan you folks on the other side of the aisle, like Ann Coulter and Tucker Carlson who are also self professed Deadheads? I think it speaks to a larger aspect of the Grateful Dead that does represent America warts. And all you know, you have this aggregating aspect in their music where you know, strains of jazz bluegrass rhythm and blues and other deeply American musical traditions or present. Then also there's the nineteen sixties counterculture that the dead came out of which they emerged from an environment that was steeped in each. Eastern, spirituality and psychedelic drugs and the beat generation, and I think part of a larger project of understanding human consciousness. So you know, who doesn't that appeal to David before we let you go. What's next for Grateful Dead fans, anything they should be keeping an eye out for always keep an eye on dead dot net. It's the official website where we keep all of the activities up to date. And it's interesting. You just mentioned that the caller specifically mentioned the San Bernardino Seventy-seven show, which is being released on CD tomorrow, which is a maze. Ing timing that that was mentioned in this call. So we we do our series of archival releases. We do four big ones a year. And then we do a huge box set every year sometimes two and we've got all sorts of things going on. We've got the Sirius XM Grateful Dead channel channel twenty three. And that's a twenty four seven dead channel. So there's again, there's so many ways and just keep an eye on dead dot net and Facebook and Twitter, and we'll keep you posted on what's going on one last thing for folks who have stuck with this conversation, but they're not Grateful Dead fans at all what should they listen to? I what's a good place to start briefly. Let me David let me start with you. And I work my way around briefly, David worship they start. I'm gonna say American Beauty start with American Beauty, maybe working man's dead. And then if they wanna get a little deeper go with live, go those three records, and you can't go wrong, and you'll get a taste of everything the grateful that is about and be clear. He's not talking about the movie and nineteen ninety nine. He's talking about an am an album called American Beauty. Holly bowling worship, they start. I mean, I think David dancer is pretty spot on. I also think it'd be a solid move to find someone in your life. That's passionate about the dead and go to show with them. You know, just jump right in with both feet where should they start? If someone's brand new to the band. I'm just going to push them right into the deep end of the pool and say Europe, nineteen seventy-two if you can come out the other side of an other one with your mind intact. Then you win the prize of being dead. So you wanna blow somebody's mind right off? That's that's a little strong, isn't it? Well, enlightenment is sometimes a sudden transformative experience. I hear that. I hear that. Casey ray. The host of the podcast dead to me. Also, the director of music licensing, Sirius XM, satellite radio. Casey, thanks for spending the hour with Holly bowling musician who plays a solo pianist and in the band. Go slight Holly. Thank you. Thanks Fatemi and David lem UV audio and video archivist for the Grateful Dead. David. Thank you so much. Thank you. Joshua. Remember to.

"Gulf of Aden is very nice this time of the year. And if you're going to do the full pirate experience. You can't beat. I know that you know, there's a lot of a lot of people would say you should do the Caribbean pirate thing because that's at least historically relevant to this part of the world. But the experience they offer over off the eastern coast of Africa. Really is. That's a crash course. Now, you will be attempting to take giant Chinese worships? So you know, I've always wanted to be a pirate. So right. Yeah. I'll just go and check them out and see what they're about this tiny little longboat that doesn't go very fast. But. And you got to be good with the grappling hooks. But other than that, you know, it's one of those places you where once you get there. It's really cheap. So those are always. Always good experiences. Good vacation options. So we're just we're planning some upcoming vacations. You're on the show. Also on the show today. Speaking of boats, the US navy. I love this headline. US navy moves toward unleashing killer. Robots ships in the world's oceans. So once you get your pirate training Andy tackled the Chinese worships, and by the way, the Russian worships that they have buzzing around out there. They don't mess around. They pretty much kill anyone. They want a believe me check the internet. You'll get to move onto the US navy's killer robot ships, which is. That's an aggressive way to sell this. We'll get into that story. You're all going to die from a volcano. Our annual story is out for that. And coming up on the show. We'll chat with Lieutenant governor, Dan forest. Couple issues to talk about with him. Do you know that in Chapel Hill last night? They hold a victory party. They're across the street from where silent Sam once stood. Yes. The activists saw all got together with your bullhorns to talk about this this great accomplishment where they broke the law. And then the person who's supposed to be the adult in the room further breaks the law, and then resigns, and then the governor of the state in which law was broken pats him on the back. So you know, what some people go. I don't call it a victory party calling. It a racing history. No, it's a victory party. They won. You have to be able to evaluate these things as they unfold, and that is exactly what happened in Chapel Hill last night. I explained to me why it's not a win for people who decided rather than going the legal route. They were going to do whatever they damn, well, please. That's got victory written all over it. And if nobody's going to do anything except to hurry along the retirement of of volt which is apparently what the boards decided to do. There's there's going to be zero zero blowback there. So we'll we'll have to pick Dan's reign about that. Also. There. There's. I feel like we're.
