"Put some pictures on instagram from on. Count our out spear fishing and hunting in hawaii. While i was out there he had had this. He was sick while we were there. Went through all the normal. Things must have cloven sound like open anyways by the time. We got home back to back to montana here. He'd found out that he had contracted a from raw game meat. He contracted toxoid plasmapheresis. Right the threat word retard in the rousing joined by a by a resident doctor dr allen czar was going to lay out up with taco plasmas recent episode called hunting and chains. We had on the author and professor scout guilt and who authored a book on and fishing in the new south in it. We're talking about you know a lot about slavery. The hunting practices slaves. And i had pointed out in that conversation. About how during the at the time. The lewis and clark expedition they have one hundred hundred people. Roughly they had a slave with them. Name york one slave. They brought along one guy not on payroll and had had like interesting experiences along the way no doubt now is pointing out that afterward. Clark liberated them emancipated. Them is granted him his own freedom. One of our contributors ben long road into those bit more complicated than that so had received york as a present as a child so he might nowadays. Give your kid. I don't know fit bit backed anybody. Here's a human being is yours to do as you please. And he kept this human being as as his possession and eventually brought him with them Brought york his his property on the expedition and had upon returning from the west had said the york that he was going to free him. Give him his freedom but he repeatedly reneged york. One time pressed him on the deal. Hey remember how you were going to do. My freedom in clark punished him by separating him from his wife and threatening to literally sell him down the river to a hostile slave or new orleans. So when you hear the expression he sold me down the river. What that means is i. I don't know how accurate is but when you hear that expression What it means is that it would be that the further down the mississippi. You got the further end of the deep south. You got the more the the Treatment of slaves would worsen so if you were like in missouri you know i think twain talks about this a fair bit like if you were in missouri To get sold down the river as you'd be sold to a new owner deeper into the south where it was worse so threatened to sell them down to a hostile slave new orleans. Clark beat york severely for being stolen insolent in eighteen. O nine so five years after i especially you're saying it was ten years. He got his freedom ten years later. Stephen ambrose who kind of brought one of the you know the modern days definitive history. The lewis clark expedition said quote much of the evil of slavery is encapsulated by this little story. This guy talking to spencer. Tell people what your ideas. I would love for us to have a lewis and clark expert on the podcast. But steve is pushback. Every time i bring it up Why is that a couple of things like big government. Okay you got little cruise okay. John coulter was with the lewis clark expedition as they're coming back down the river. They almost get the the almost get to saint louis. This harrowing years to get home. John coulter runs into some trappers. Going back up the river and turns around doesn't even go to saint louis turns around goes back up the river. That's the kind of guy. I'm interested in But i'm interested in the little bands a mountain men in that era but like the gun not to hack on government at all but like a hundred guys edicts the president. It's just to me. It's not the kind of a swashbuckling rugged individual entrepreneurialism that inspires me but those sorts of fellas that you like you've covered dozens of times over by now and still having given even a thirty minutes segment of a podcast lewis and clark okay. They steve's gonna summit up right here let me tell you the interesting things about it. Okay that on their to do list was to see if there's woolly mammoths on joe. That's true yeah okay. That's interesting The only tribe they got shootout with. Was you asking me To they're going to shoot out with the black Killed a black feet or they had an air rifle on that expedition. Interesting to me. My kid my eleven year olds perked right up. Yeah yeah they'll get it out to impress. People had a repeating era with like a compressor. This various parts about that are interesting. Have you been to pompey's pillar no dummy building. You can see clark's name. Carbon the rockford longest time they said it was the only physical evidence of the expedition. That's like another plus for doing a lewis and clark episode. Those guys touched like fifteen to twenty states. So there's like a lot of school children that have some connection to lose. Clark my favorite part about stories. Clark suicide which is only way later. Why is that your favorite part. Because just how crazy you went. Yeah he's kind of in. That night was was a crazy night. Yeah the night. He killed himself. Yeah you should save when we have the expert on the show. Where if he does know about that part. Oh they will you think so widely known we can.

The Curse of Transylvania University

"Established in seventeen. Eighty transylvania is the oldest university west of the allegheny mountains. Its name means across the woods in latin and the university was named after the colony of transylvania which had also never heard about. Have you a little history lesson about the tiny short-lived colony of transylvania. So as an american colony founded in early seventeen seventy five by north carolina. Land speculator richard henderson. He was head of. The transylvania company henderson is investors. Bought lands west of the southern and central appalachian mountains from the cherokee nation in exchange for the land. The tribe received goods worth around ten thousand british pounds. About one point. Five million now. This land was also claimed by both the virginia colony and was at the time the province of north carolina american pioneering frontier explorer daniel. Boone was hired by henderson to establish parts of the transylvania settlement. The revolutionary war though complicated things and the states were forming around transylvania's establish towns kentucky tennessee north carolina eventually absorbed their respective parts of the colony henderson was compensated with a land grant along the ohio river in western kentucky and where the current town of henderson was founded. So he's still got something. so what remains. This colony. is transylvania university transylvania university at its start was a single log cabin in boyle county kentucky. Its first sponsor was an episcopal church though it's kind of known to be presbyterian still even the school moved to lexington in seventeen eighty nine in the early eighteen. Hundreds the school expanded under the order of kentucky icon and politician henry clay who both taught law there and was a member of transylvania board. After eighteen eighteen the university had a medical school a law school divinity school and college of arts and sciences in the mid. Eighteen hundreds transylvania university. Was these school.

"To see the movie testimonials of those like you who now have their lives back artery and vein expert way centers. You're listening to the best of WTMJ conversations. I'm Scott Waris this week, speaking with James Lovell, the commander of the Apollo 13 mission. That mission, incidentally, was not Levels first that orbited the moon. He had been there once before, and offers a remarkable description of what he was able to see. And offers perspective on the life and expanse of the entire universe. Walk me down Memory lane as it pertained to Gemini seven and 12 and those precursors for the eventual Apollo missions. What was it about the Gemini program in your experiences there? That prepared you for those Apollo missions? Well, Germany was designed on what I finally got the program Tonto, check out a lot of aspects of going to the moon on. So what Germany's missions were, where to do, things that would have to be done are expected to be done on a lunar voyage. 77 was a two week mission. That's a about the total length of time that we need to go to the moon and back again. And so, Frank Borman and I spent two weeks together already the earth to say what one effect it would have on the human body. We were wired up so that the doctors on the ground could you read our from our vitals? We ourselves What? To see how how We could spend two weeks in a thing that's smaller than a Volkswagen and I have to tell you that was a real trial on then Germany 12 as far as because there was good actually at all, shoot. Of that's going to the moon. But how? How do you do things outside of spacecraft That means working outside several Germany place Before that I had tried to go outside the spacecraft to do various functions from found out that they all forgot Newton's third law of motion to every action. There's an out of opposite and equal reaction. And where they would try to touch the spacecraft. Eo would expel our push him away. I mean the reaction and so we finally had overcome that in our training by using a swimming pool. That's how things got started in space. Today. We're The Johnson Space Center as a huge pool where they work on. I'll work on it in the water Purple before the before they go up on the international space station. We move ahead, then Apollo 8 1968 you and the crew one of three of the first humans to fly to an orbit the moon the ramp up to that I would ask this of every one of your missions. Do nerves still play a role. Yeah, There's always played well, especially when you're doing something that's so unusual, but you have to remember that we were in trained and more trained. Oh, to overcome those. I was a navigator on Apollo ways. So I got to know the communication sisters in the navigation system very well. And that gave me confidence that what we're going to try to do who are actually going to do and you know probably has some international significance because We had heard that the Russians were going to try to put the man or men around the mood and in December of 1968 Holloway was going to be a north orbital flight to test out the lunar module, but the lunar module was delayed from the manufacturer. So really, a great decision was made to make Apollo week going to the moon and try to number one beat the Russians to do Gore to go around the mound. But to me it was more like Lewis and Clark expedition. We're going to see for the first time, the far side of the moon mother side that mankind could never have seen because it always keeps itself away from There's Earth on go. I was very much excited. And this was a natural for me. How would you describe what you saw when you were up there? The far side of the moon. Well, of course, the greatest sight When we for all for a sight as this song as we burned into the wound around the moon, I should say in the darkness so we didn't save the Our side right away was all dark and know something suddenly came around and put light on to the far side. But as we slipped around, then we could finally see the Earth come up. Earth cares coming up with some 240,000 miles away. And you know the site was very significant. And I mentioned this many times, but I could put my thumb up to the window. Let me hide. Years. Now you have to think about that old is everything that I've ever known. People. These people, they're of the Earth's oceans. You know, desert bones. Everything was behind by my thumb I wanted well, how do I fit in? And then, of course, I think I mentioned this many times. I totally remember that old saying that. I hope to go to heaven when I die. But in reality I I I went to heaven when I was born because I arrived on the planet. Of the large size who have the gravity to contain water and an atmosphere very essentials for life. And I thought also that I arrived on the planet. That was orbiting a star at just the right distance. Not too far out that they do who are into close to be too hot, but just the right distance that this planet and formed the Sun's energy and energy was started in life to evolve. The feeling of How incredibly small we are as a race as a planet. I can only imagine it's it's just such a contrast in size and scope of who we really are. That's true. What do you get away from the earth? As far as we were from 240,000 miles that becomes well known that we're not alone here because you know in the universe. There's got to be other planets like Earth orbiting stars at just the right this system informally or start life like this, so there's gotta be other. Civilizations out there in the universe.

"Generally credited as being the pioneering I scientist. But in fact, the initial polarize scientists and glaciologist was, in fact, Captain James Cook, better known and associate it with palm trees and sandy beaches. Now, in terms of a Pacific Northwest legacy. You might remember that George Vancouver who would name Puget Sound and lots of other things when he sailed around this area in 17 92. George Vancouver was a member of the crew of Cook's 2nd and 3rd voyage. So McAndrews says that Vancouver learned a lot from cook that's sailing with Cook for was kind of a floating midshipman school for George Vancouver and several people like him. He also says there's misperceptions linking Vancouver's 17 92 voyage to the northwest Coast toe. What Cook did and didn't accomplish. 15 years earlier, was commonly perceived. The Vancouver was sent out. To kind of make up for some shortcomings that cooked was responsible for on the third voyage. Minutes. Usually put that Cook missed the Columbia River. He missed the Strait of Juan de Fuca Cook was sent to 65 degrees. Before he was even to begin to search. So a river that fell out of the 46 parallel or the Strait of Juan de Fuca between 47 48. They're of no consequence to him and his mission given his fidelity the mission because he knew inevitably They would be a dead end. Yeah. So the bottom line is James Cook wasn't concerned with anything south of 65 degrees latitude in Vancouver was on an entirely different mission when he missed the Columbia River as we've often. We've often chided poor Vancouver for missing the Columbia River back in 17 92. Now, along with Vancouver's visit here, the Corps of Discovery the Lewis and Clark expedition in the early 18 hundreds. It's another chapter of great historical consequence. Regionally, of course, but nationally as well. And as it turns out that long shadow of Captain James Cook influence both the mission of the expedition and how it's been remembered. Ever since Thomas Jefferson's instructions for Merryweather Lewis were I'll say cribbed, but certainly he borrowed heavily from the ad brought is published account of cooks instructions from his 1st 2nd and 3rd voyage. And cooks Memorial ist refers to his courage on daunted, which, of course, is a resonant phrase within the within the world of Lewis and Clark because Jefferson later used it in his memorial because of Lewis's untimely death, and, of course, Stephen Ambrose famously interpolated it into undaunted courage. For his famous book about the Lewis and Clark expedition. And there's a lot more in David Candy's book. It's called Captain Cook, rediscovered voyaging to the icy latitudes. Perfect holiday. Get for someone who loves history or just a perfect pandemic present yourself. History. Felix Patel.

"This year published a book titled Repairing Jefferson's America, a guide to civility and enlightened citizenship. I've read it. It's a good book a lot of interesting information about Jefferson and quite quite a statement of vision and mission that Klay draws from it. A native and current resident of Bismarck North Dakota Clays director at the Coda Institute, which makes documentary. Films Publishes Books At Dakota, Institute Press and hosts humanities events about the great plains. Kennel chronicles listener Brian Person is a fan of the Thomas Jefferson our and he's the one who suggested that I invite clay for an interview. We connected by skype on Tuesday September fifteenth between Maine and North. Dakota, I began by asking prompted clay in one thousand, nine, hundred four to begin his long and fruitful engagement with the life and work of Thomas. Jefferson. Turned out to be the maybe the central relationship of my life except with respect to my daughter Catherine. The director of the North Dakota Humanities Council, one of the state. Councils called me. I was at an airport heading to London and it was the white courtesy telephone. So I thought you know I've never had one of those calls before. Thought someone must be hurt or dead of than. It was my friend. He said I'm I'm writing a grant of the H. and it'll be a conference and I want you to portray Thomas Jefferson if we get the grant. It seemed like moronic idea to me frankly. But I sure because I knew he wouldn't get the money then he got it and he held me to it and so I rented a costume and I didn't have to do much. This was a really small thing I- I suited up and I'm not from a theater background at all I'm uncomfortable in fact, even to this day in tights and Buckles and so on but I did it and then I thought. Oh. This. Jefferson. This is renaissance man. He knows why he knows architecture he knows library classification. Yeah. He's an archaeologist. He said the Lewis and Clark expedition and these statesman he's one of the Great. Letter. Writers in. American history. This I can attach myself to this guy and continue lifelong education. Had you done historical imprisons of other people before you know whenever I never I I I I never was involved in theater. Of the. I, it's just it's not a way. I see the world And I wasn't even a historian I'm a literature scholar by training, and so you know I don't know why he asked me to do this except we were close friends and so. This was my first character. I do I suppose seven or eight I've done fifteen. But some of them are sort of one off but I got interested in it and I'll tell you why. It's one thing to lecture about somebody. But it's another thing to embody that person and so if you ask me a question say. What was Jefferson's attitude towards native Americans? I can talk about that for you know minutes or hours..

The role that he played in the country, the role he played in slavery, etcetera, I'm just telling you If if what we're trying to do is give our kids a basic understanding, then I've got 500 names. I want them to know before I get to Eli Whitney. I'm not saying Eli Whitney wasn't significant. He waas, however. I want him to know James Madison's name. I want him to know Alexander Hamilton's names.

Because it was so dangerous such a dangerous mission. Yes, they're two different missions Follow. It was the first flight to the bone is the first place that we could see the far side of the moment. I I felt like it was more like Lewis and Clark Expedition. You know, looking at new territory and everything like touch. And why Apollo way? What?

You felt that that movie was a fairly accurate portrayal of what happened on Apollo 13, except for the arguing and the dispute among the crew members that never happened, did it? You know, Agent But you see. Ah, they had to do something. Something of the movie to emphasize stress. They just could take a picture of a guy. With perspiration coming down his face saying nothing, So Ah did show the stress of the hour. The flight, you know, trying to figure out how to get back home knowing this The total amount of danger that were involved in AA. But that second show, but there are other times that was not showing the movie work. By the three got kind of, you know, irritable of each other, and I finally had just say we want to get home plus work together as a team. Yeah, it was to be the third moon landing 1970 50 years ago. The lunch was April 11th return April 17 and in the movie Now I always recognized you at the end making that cameo as the captain of the recovery ship and you shake hands with Tom Hanks.

"The problems in Saint. Louis started when the Olympics were first awarded to Paraphrase Dante from the movie clerks. The Olympics weren't even supposed to be here. The original city which was awarded the Olympics wasn't Saint Louis, but Chicago, however in one, thousand, nine, hundred three Saint Louis scheduled the Louisiana Purchase Exposition, which was supposed to commemorate the one hundredth anniversary of the Lewis and Clark expedition. However they can pull it off in time, so it was delayed until nineteen four. They didn't want another international event taking place at the same time in the United States let alone a neighboring state, so they threatened to host their own sporting event during the world's fair to compete with the Olympics at the time. The Olympics wasn't that big deal. It is today, so the threat was real and could have affected the long term prospects of the event peer decor baton, the founder of the Modern Olympics eventually relented and awarded the Olympics to Saint Louis. The games were scheduled over A. A five month period from July, to November of one, thousand, nine, hundred four, which coincided with the world's fair. The games were also held during the Russia Japanese war, which limited the number of countries attending it also was located in the middle of the United States at a time when there was no air travel, athletes coming from Europe, had to have crossed the Atlantic by ship, and then work their way overland to Saint, Louis, as a result, the vast majority of the competitors were from North America. The Ninety six gold medals awarded at the Game eighty-six were awarded to the United States Canada or Cuba. The games were so lopsided in favor of the United Stated almost shouldn't be counted as a real Olympics. The marathon took place on August. Thirtieth the temperature at the start of the race was thirty three degrees, Celsius or ninety two degrees Fahrenheit that in and of itself was pretty bad, but the near one hundred percent humidity at the time made it even worse. The heat index, which is what the temperature feels like with the humidity, reached fifty seven degrees, Celsius or one hundred and thirty five degrees, Fahrenheit. It was one of the hottest races ever run in history. To put this in perspective, the ideal temperature to run a marathon is considered to be around forty nine degrees Fahrenheit or ten degree Celsius modern race. Organizers are advised to postpone a race. If temperatures get above seventy Fahrenheit or twenty one degrees, Celsius this is why all the major marathons in the world are almost always run in the spring or the fall. The reason why cool temperatures are preferred is because of the amount of heat. Someone will produce when running, even putting aside the humidity heat index. There's a specific heat index for runners which takes into consideration how hot it would feel for a runner. The next doesn't even calculated if it's over eighty five Fahrenheit and thirty Celsius and sixty percent humidity, because it's just too dangerous to run. And summary You do not want to run when it is hot and on this day it was really hot..

"Rope was so important. That one of the guys is who went on the Lewis and Clark expedition. He kept a diary in one of the line. They'll never forget that. I read what this expedition was held together are by rope and that just that really got me because I thought Mary. You made history lady That's awesome she. Also if people have heard of Commodore Perry now the the war in Lake Erie in eighteen thirteen the British Royal Navy starts impinging on American territory and has taken Detroit O. Aw outrageous the British seize control of Lake Erie and there's this major battle and Commodore Perry came to marry Irwin and said I would like you to please outfit my navy for this upcoming battle and she agreed and they did a rush job for all of his rope for are all of these ships. Madore Peiris warships set off for Lake Erie and defeat the British. Louis Detroit's push back to Canada. This chapter of American history that I never heard about yes. Mary Irwin's rope saving the day. It also outfitted the New Orleans thousands. which was the first steamboat? Travel from Pittsburgh all the way to New Orleans by this brand and new idea that you could bring things up the Mississippi River. Yeah that no one had really done this. Before this was a pleasure cruise. I would soon become exactly what she predicted. That all of this trade is coming up and down these rivers and Pittsburgh the center and of course Pittsburgh does become the center of manufacturing innovation the Industrial Revolution. When all of these started to happen? You have Andrew Carnegie Big Deal Industry Henry Heinz Heinz Ketchup but fun fact. Henry Heinz US first company was bottling. His mother pushed radic. Oh that was less successful than catch up so he moved on. But we know these men's needs these hijackers of industry history in Pittsburgh. Yeah and none of us have heard of Mary Irwin And yet her impact on the city her impact on the economy in this. It's it's every bit as big as there's We're not heard of her. Because she didn't become a evil megalomaniac and crush all her competition and and make millions and millions of dollars and then feel guilty in the end and donate it to try to help humanity. She did well she didn't. I guess. Become an evil megalomaniac but it it was a big philanthropic worse in the city. was she like a millionaire. She she she had halted her family into the one percent. Percents they were all are one of the premier families of Pittsburgh and by the time we hit Gilded Age America. They are among the elite. They are marrying the Perry's in the Carnegie's and the Heinz's they are. Oh my God in exactly the same straddle of society as these these men and yet we've never heard of her that kind of frost my chops that we have all these women in such as Pittsburgh. It's everywhere we don't know. So it's our job to uncover uncover and it's not just us. Her family did not know her story where they think the money came came from. They know all about John Irwin. His vast rope making empire and his foresight in noticing the importance portent Blitzburgh as the site of all of these rivers than starting a rope walk and manufacturing Roman creating this empire. John Irwin and Mary Irwin Win. Son Get all the credit for this even within the family and they do not even know her name off off. Did this research and brought it to the failures of what she did. Look I had no idea why. Why is it still earns every time? Yeah so I thought well at least if nothing else family hopefully with the tail here. I'm going to put her in my American history class next semester. So so this is something that I have. Only recently realized is unusual. Maybe in our family we grew up with mother who deeply prizes family history genealogy. Jenny urology this information. So what are these stories from our ancestors that you remember that. We learned growing up Sarah Elizabeth conover could dance the teacup on her head. Feisty Fanny Gibbs put on her husband's uniform and dressed like a ghost Aunt Bertha ran brothel. I ran the best. All of our stories are are women can tell you the names of our male ancestors. Yeah no stories about and I think I just assumed that that's how these kind of things usually go that that it is women who are doing howling and so we really stories that are getting passed on and because I follow a lot of professional twitter somehow. Okay I'm realizing more. And more than that is really unusual. joie genealogy like history follows male lions. They are people know they're male ancestor stories and the women are disappeared. Now uh I'm so grateful but that's not true and I started wondering this morning if rowing up understanding understanding that women's stories matter baby that prime does for creating this podcast we come at it with this perspective. That of course The stories of women from history are as those are the ones we know from our history we know the details of their lives that bring them alive and how important it was to keep those alive in oral history because those stories aren't written down by the man doing the official record keeping being bright. Yeah so you have to look for the subtlest of clues like the original business being called and wife that those kinds of clues news can speak volumes because they didn't write down the volumes. Now it's people like Gloria. That are doing this work on local levels. Finding these women men who series have been literally buried And bringing them back out and saying. Hey wait we should be talking about her as much as we're talking about carnegie she this city as much as high instead and unfortunately that same pattern of erasure and minimization continues in her grave She's buried in fact very near my home in allegheny cemetery and and I wanted to see her grave so I went there last December a year ago and I could not find it. I found the Irwin. Whatever real estate big interesting and I thought John has a big slab in all these other or would in a new? Mary's was in the ground. I couldn't find it so they went to the historical sites. Can you help me find this grave. They eventually did find it and she does have a marker. Don't tell me it says wife it doesn't say why it's the size of a brick and it says Mary. Wow that's it Mary tool. Yeah well that does it so to make this right or as a tiny step toward by team at this March there will be an event at the cemetery Tehri. I'm doing a very low key. Nonreligious event to just remember Mary and recognize her in her contribution to this city. Then give little pieces of rope for people to tie on their fingers to remember Mary because when I was that's what we used to do during her finger recognizing her legacy that task too and bringing attention to her story. So anybody in the Pittsburgh area in March. We'll have a link to this on our website. You absolutely should go is open to the public free event and I hope eventually that her family will recognize that she deserves much more than a brick that says Mary give I statue in the center of town statue someone. Someone should create a work of art. Israel rope yes in Mary's honor. What's it called Maccarone off Mary? Yeah Rope artists listening. Please create create a macro. May Mary please.

Lewis and Clark's Stinky Expedition

"Lewis and Clark expedition was pretty much. The original road trip there was camping grilling out a ridiculous amount of mosquito bites and a large group of men who did not have much opportunity to bathe. So when they picked up the Kagowa and her baby pompey near Fort Mandate to join them. She was probably a little worried about being with a bunch of smelly guys who thought nothing of rubbing themselves with rancid bear grease to keep the bugs away but at the time she officially joined them. The temperature was below zero so mary weather. Lewis William Clark in the men were probably a long way from maximum stink edge. When the CO captain's Lewis and Clark originally started preparations rations for the journey and eighteen zero three? They gathered their chosen men. Supplies trading goods from the native Americans and as much nonperishable food as possible. They didn't know how long the trip was going to take so among other things they weren't share of how many Christmas presents to bring it was at Camp Dubois near Saint Saint Louis that they spent their first Christmas together while waiting for the spring thaw to start their journey. According to Clark's journals three native Americans. Join them for a celebration celebration. And the men frolicked and hunted all day that Spring when it was warm enough to finally start heading to the Pacific Ocean Amir twenty the three hundred miles away. The men were sure to look pretty sharp. Since it was a military operation most of them had uniforms and the CO captains were no different. The red trimmed blue coat and white woolen waistcoats and trousers. They wore were the most splendid of all and in hindsight you would probably agree that they weren't overdressed. I if you know anything about will you know that. It's less than ideal for hot summer days. But as they went on they found that their clothes were wearing out tearing and more commonly just being very uncomfortable but out there in the west they were several decades away from the existence of a department store so so they had to improvise and adapt. They wore clothes for weeks on end. And when those wore out they started making pants and shoes and over shirts from the hides of the animals that they eight Oh and they ate a lot of animals while working their way through the great plains the men typically stuffed as much as nine pounds of meat into into their hungry mouths a date lucky for them. There was a lot of game to hunt in the planes. Because these bowling ball's size portions were pretty necessary. They were burning calories like today's professional athletes. Now you might think the big boat. They had made it easier to travel on the river right. Yeah you'd think so but you would be wrong.

"Is incredibly impressive to look at where they were then back in the nineteen twenties. And where we are today as a nation in terms of technology, and and what luxuries you would have available to you. Here's a very wealthy man back then. And if you told them today, if you could tell him about the luxuries we have today, I'm sure it would be a damn well, this it was the conservative Tribune, which is an offshoot of. I believe the. Oh, I think western journalists. And but they got this from the Atlantic, which is not a conservative magazine was an article published by the Atlantic two years ago. This was just written last week that it was written two years ago. But they had referenced it that compared the day to day living the twenty first century American to the wealthiest class back in nineteen sixteen. It's an eye opener detailing how much Americans from every economic class of benefited from the explosion of material wealth and medical advances that have occurred since US became a dominant power on the world stage in its poor Americans today better off than billionaires in one thousand nine hundred sixteen and we don't realize we really don't realize about history. I've mentioned that when I read the the one of the greatest books I read on the Lewis and Clark expedition. And it's the book started talking about the the mindset of people in that time in the late seventeen hundreds. And you know, when they were born, and the absolute paranoia that they said has. Not been communicated to modern generations, the paranoia the fear people had of death constantly, even at young ages. Because if you've got to cut you could die, right? It was a completely different ballgame that the fear of death permeated through society. Like, we can't imagine even at young ages. Right. Yeah. And and that that had an impact on me. And I started thinking, you know, what what did they really go through? And when you think about the rich bag, then will you look at the middle class today. You know, and that's why we'd come up a couple of years ago, we I hadn't seen the Atlantic article. We just you know, when you think about it after watching the history channel, the men the men who built America, we came out and said, well, you think about it in the mid vast majority of ways except for the size of a home and for actually a property owned. We have a better quality of life than billionaires did little over one hundred years ago. What's available to it's amazing. When you think about that? Yeah. That actually puts things in. Perspective for a little bit. When people start with my life is so tough. Well, I mean, again, that's it's this massive cooperation of this huge supply chain of things and a huge offering of services. In a free market society. That that creates those those luxuries as they really are as I wrote. It didn't matter how much money you had you couldn't buy antibiotics. Good dental care cars, right? It just childbirth. That did not involve an inordinate risk of death for the baby. Or the mother didn't matter how much money you had you could get by that..

"The year after the Republic was founded George Washington authorized medical services in Washington DC for veterans and for the poor. We had government funded healthcare literally the first year or two of the public but spurred by that comment. I looked up our founding father physician Dr Benjamin rush. Jefferson surgeon general the continental army medical director of the corps of discovery of Lewis and Clark in eighteen o three and his favorite treatment. If you showed up in his emergency room complaining of belly pain and vomiting, and all that he would probably have led you because that was his preferred method people for yellow fever victims or he would have looted you up with heavy metals like mercury great. In fact, he supplied these pills for the Lewis and Clark expedition, which were more than fifty percent mercury. And archaeologist today have been able to trace the precise round of Lewis and Clark by tracing the mercury from these anti. Laxity pills that he prescribed for the it's amazing. There's there's a story behind that. Mercury. Was called quicksilver and the doctors of the age used it because it stimulates the immune system. The body knows that it's being poisoned, and it just freaks out and kicks into high fever response, which is actually antibacterial, you know, it's like it helps the body fight off bacteria infections. The problem is a poisons you with mercury, but they didn't know that at the time. And that's why they were called quick doctors or quicksilver doctors and that phrase over the years evolved into quack doctors. That's where the phrase quack doctor came from as as modern drugs are being developed in the late nineteenth early twentieth century penicillin or whatnot. And coming into the market a big way in the medical profession was starting to license itself and things like that they refer to the old mercury doctors Ben Rauch has as quack doctors or quick something else. They didn't have in. Dr Russia's age was the half a million dollar. And I've seen cases.
