You can certainly connect to other monster traditions in other films at the time period but i love how stink they are in the stuff to your mind discord. Somebody shared a video about the sameness of monsters in modern pictures. Which is an interesting argument. That maybe i have. I have some critiques on. But you can't you cannot say that they these monsters are all the same in this picture. All filled a stink. They feel like they definitely arise from different planets from different different evolutionary paths. And you get a taste of their culture as well. that's right. Yeah so we had the brain mutant.

Have it locked down because as powerful as these monsters are they cannot overpower science which gamma and beta heaven.

"Just didn't know the details. Although cicero soon became privy to the plan thanks to one woman close to caroline's inner circle. This was fool via the mistress of quintas curious trusted cadillac supporter. He joined cadillac after he himself was expelled from the senate for having one too many affairs after hearing rumblings of the plan she convinced curious to confide in her. She wanted to know all about catalans conspiracy to overthrow the city. Curious believe that once cadillac took back power. He'd regain his position and his wealth but unbeknownst curious she warned cicero of the plot. She believed there were too many lives at stake to stand idly by. Cicero was grateful for the information that we had to find a way to leverage it. He didn't believe the senators would take full visas. Word for it. In the meantime cicero continued searching for more evidence of this conspiracy and almost by fate on october twentieth. Such proof finally arrived that night and unknown messenger left a packet of anonymous letters at the home of crisis. Rome's wealthiest man crassus had financed some catalans earlier campaigns but it since withdrawn his support. The letters were addressed to crassus and various other politicians. One specifically to crassus warned him that cadillac was going to kill the senators against him and seize power on october. Twenty seventh crassus was so startled that the same night he gathered some of the other optimize sei's and went to cicero's home. They didn't know who'd written letters but they were convinced. It was rock solid evidence at last cicero had proof. That carolina was initiating a coup. He convened an emergency meeting that morning. The senate was sure to declare cadillac an enemy of the state the following day on october twenty first cicero and the other senators met in the curia. The room was bustling with a nervous fearful energy. Cicero passed out the letters that had been delivered to cross this doorstep after the senators read them they were convinced they passed the ultimate decree and declared catiline an enemy of the state. Legally they were allowed to kill catalin but there was hesitancy to rush into anything instead. The senators ordered that he be taken into custody and placed under house arrest. They would wait and see if there really was an uprising before making their next move to prove his innocence. Catalin insisted he stay in cicero's house but cicero refused. Believing catalan was homicidal. In fact everyone was so terrified of caroline that hardly anyone let him stay at their home eventually. His fellow co-conspirator named marcus marcellus took him in october. Twenty seventh came and went without a battle. The calm surprise the roman public making them wonder if catalin really was innocent. The shifted the narrative yet again as people started to believe that cicero had made the entire matter up perhaps he forged the letters himself but cicero was vindicated. When one of the senators received a report from itera catalans commander manley as had amassed an army of twenty thousand soldiers. The coup who was about.

"Someone called phantom voters there were just more manner and means of fraud than any law abiding. American citizen could possibly imagine it's stunning. It's absolutely stunning. And they were so in our face with it and then to deny it is purely machiavelli and ironically in two thousand seven then vice president. I don't fuse. Elector to be hopeful. Joe biden was worried about the voting machines to keep it from us being able to be in a position where you can manipulate. The machines relate directors. The one way to do that. Is i think we should pass a federal law. Mandating that the same machines with paper trails be mandatory for every federal. Election the nutshell. I think we should be mandated mandating that we have paper ballots with the standardized machines. Standardized require so. I don't know about everything else. But i i completely believe after having looked at all the quote unquote forensics. And there's a huge report that came out from the I think it's the michigan machines. Those machines are rigged rigged and that that has to stop no matter what i think everyone kind of agrees on that well. Here's what i've got. This election was lost in may of two thousand nine hundred nineteen when when trump put together his that executive order in november sixteen two thousand eighteen. He put together an operation which is now has a three billion dollar budget and they have big website and it's kind of interesting called the cybersecurity and infrastructure security agency and this was set up specifically to prevent the any fraudulent activity in the upcoming election and it was moving along just fine. It was being run by this guy. Chris crassus who was fired immediately after the election because they couldn't find anything wrong with the election and he's the one that headed up headed up the let me put hang up your the clearly it cease on the line for you. They want you to visit. They want you to shut down your solar winds please. While you're doing that. I will play a creepy robocall here. We go creepy robo-call of the day cast call. I'm stay home and stay home anyway. I got a couple of new. Robots recently Anyway so he set up this agency began. He set up this agency and you can go see it. It's a c. I s gov It's a massive website. And now they. They're even producing graphic novels linked to the graphic novel for downloading newsletter. I've seen that so so this guy. Crabs was running the thing and everything was going along swimmingly but what happened was and if you look into the background this agency and it was a student government report that discovered this. I'm going to read it in october. Of twenty twenty review for the institute for world politics student journal active measures stated that c. I s. a. And by the way this is one of my pet peeves about all these agencies apparently lax enforcement division which the did have the federal protection services which resorted until two thousand ten under the us immigration and customs enforcement was actually working for these guys. It was moved in may twenty nineteen from the cia essay to the d. h. s. management directory directorate off. So it was the their enforcement capabilities. Which means you can't find crimes if you don't have inspectors and virtual cops out there people do investigations if there's no investigators right you're not gonna find anything and they took investigation of Capabilities away from this agency to three billion dollar agency in may of twenty nine thousand nine hundred and that's when the election was lost. Well how did this happen. Well if you look into it This is after after christian. Nielsen quit bright. In april of two thousand nineteen they moved in this in some guy who last it was there for. Six months only came and left on his own. Nobody pushed him out. He came in in in april and in may implemented this removal of the enforcement capability. Who is this guy. Kevin mclean an and who has kevin mclean he was. He's a old hack from border patrol. But he was the me. Just read this from this. From the wikipedia president trump nominated clinton mclennan maclennan to assume the position of commissioner in a permanent capacity mcdonagh's previous nomination was supported by officials from both the george bush and barack obama administration's old rhinos in the democrat party. A number of whom signed a letter to congress expressing enthusiastic support for the supremely qualified mclennan. He says then we read on He says when he quit few months later after he had done the dirty deed of sabotaging this agency by removing its enforcement capabilities. Leaving them toothless. So the whole thing was a joke and this was bound to happen. And there's no way they're going to prove anything did happen because investigating it so this report is coming up dead. Everything's coming up dead. Everybody who had anything to say about this full of shit and he and mclean quits. He says he felt he had accomplished. All could did just walk to have more time with his family. And that's the beginning of the end right there. In in in twenty nine hundred as with this thing was pre dawn it was a done deal. The bush faction of the republican party which is a huge part of the party. Jeb bush got his revenge and the whole democrat. Party teamed up. It wasn't anybody else who wasn't a rushing the chinese or anything else. That was an inside job. That's why nobody's gonna stand up in congress because the deals over and trump is done and now we're going to move on from there and that's it my friend gene surging to you. He said something over thanksgiving which i think is very astute. We all know trump for his. You're fired that that's his brand to. You're fired what the real issue is. It trump has a hiring problem. He hires really shitty people. He's smart that he's able to to fire people and you just get rid of him right away or one. It's the problem. But even then maybe not. I don't even think cavanaugh or amy conybeare. It might have been good good choices for him for what he's trying to achieve Bar we know bar was although bartered a lot of strong things. We always knew that he still he and muller they're buddies they they have nine eleven business that they don't want anyone to know about in him resigning right at this moment he has a he has a a real hiring problem he has hired and maybe the pool is just. It's just nobody that can do anything. That isn't compromise these days. That's.

"I think that's over so but walking into Levante David shoes is Allie Marquette. I think others in two ways in one way he is that he is good and doesn't get the recognition that he deserves but is he going to then get that recognition because of Brady or more Nashoba up a national audience for the box this year I really don't know that he will because he's a guard and it's just the reality of the way things most fans I don't know if you'll ever you know you need to be people oblate Nelson or play on the Dallas Cowboys. Zack Martin to be recognized as kind of a any league art or guard the people actually talk about So just as position may hold them back from having that reaction, the national audience but. Bees for a long time. I mean there's a strong conversation for him being the third best guard in the League and I think that the at worst e seven and you know think somewhere in that range is where he's consistently been for couple of years now, and so now these fully healthy was last year and I think being foil t now I think he's going to have a dominant season to John. This is the time of year where we spend a lot of time talking about the guys who are going to be low in the depth chart those guys battling out positions during training camp we're going to talk about some of those guys, but before we do. Let's talk about some of the stars of the team like as a person who's kind of new to the beat as a person who's coming in and just from the access you've had to training camp so far, which I know has been a bit of an arm's distance, but still you've had a bit more access than say rented I have who has really stood out to you. Do you think anybody's really gonNA surprise people this year like what what do you kind of see as you look at the landscape of the buccaneers heading into twenty twenty? Yeah. I mean when you say surprise I, think of more people who who aren't you know that greater that big household name. And what they might be able to do this season you know because I think people expect. Devon white to take the next step for the most part and Oj Howard and I think even has some buzz around him. He might be one worth mentioning because I'm big Howard Fan I. Think he's GonNa have a great year so they might be ones worth mentioning, but I mean to me. It's like guys like ricky noon as roaches like I mean watch it. I. Mean he just been great camp plus he's just an energy guy. He's come off the bench and played twenty twenty-five snaps game. Hopefully, they give him that kind of a role and I think it's taped last year was just really good and and people don't know because he only played a handful of snaps last year. I think he was really impressive. I think that he's got a he's got he's growing kind of a late bloomer, but he's growing and his hands gone better as a pass rusher and so to me like he's the kind of guy that even though his role might not be full-time, they need players like that right now to be able to step up and to be able to take some type of role interior. Defensive Linemen 'cause no Crassus, no proven number three edge rusher down consumers getting older. He's less effective as a pass rusher vitas three, hundred forty pounds like it or not science just tells us the guy that's going to have to off the field once in a while if he's going to be at his best week sixteen, seventeen playoffs. So I think a guy like news roaches just says a huge role to play. The season and the impact that he could make for them especially on passing downs if he's able to be a contributor, there could be huge for them. Because right now, they are really kind of searching for a fourth good Rauscher third edge rusher at third interior defensive linemen. Really you know of goal since he did grow a little bit as a passenger, but never really been much of a pass rusher over. His career. So trying to figure out who's GonNa make that type of impact is huge and I think the only guy that could really that would really in my mind look like he could do it. This year is known as roaches. This is something that that that I wanNA talk about with you. Now I know you were fans I use the word worry or scary as far as depth that certain physicians. People in the media say lack of experience. So then into your offense of line I know worried.

And their armies and Rome is fully lipped out. I don't know if they knew that creeks who by the way was a kelt which I find immensely interesting. But creeks is I don't know if they knew that he was coming toward Rome and that they just narrowly avoided being attacked by that contingent but it was definitely on their mind. That Rome was left. Unprotected remember the best generals and the best their best armies were in Spain and Crete And there was a really really angry group of impoverished and in escaped slaves. Who were who had assembled themselves into a pretty respectable army Possibly coming toward Rome in Rome was on thin ice at this point. I mean we're still super powerful obviously but They make a good point in this article that they kind of relied on the fact that everyone thought they were great and was super scared of them. And they had these big scary armies and once they started getting these defeats and once they started getting defeats especially at the hands of a former slave. Who was leading this kind of Ragtag team That was revolting against them. Those little chink in that armor and Spartacus his other winning battles in everyone hears about this. And that's a big big deal. Arom all of a sudden. They seem like they're defeatable. Yeah which if you are if you're society include slaves and the slaves are kept in line by the idea that you are undefeatable. That's right so they're they`re. They seem like they're defeatable now. Their best armies and generals are away and they couldn't really find anyone to really take care of Spartacus until this guy stepped up. He was a wealthy named Marcus. Crassus any said you know. I've got the dough and I'm a pretty brutal leader in my own right. Maybe you've heard of me and so I'm going to finance this army and I'm going to go kill that guy and so if there's a villain in the story it is crass as he was terrible. Terrible person possibly. The richest person Roma's ever seen I read somewhere that he he would go to places that had caught fire with his personal fire brigade and would negotiate with the owner of the the house or whatever to buy it and if the if they would negotiate at just an extremely cheap rate to sell their house that was on fire then krastijus or crassus would have is fire brigade. Put it out. If they didn't negotiator sell than he would just leave with his fire brigade at burn. Here's that kind of crassus was like. Hey man this place is on fire. And I'm offering to buy it from you right. It's a fire sale. You should. You should take this. Yeah but if they wouldn't if they'd be like no. This is completely unacceptable and immoral. He'd be like all right. See you later as far away would leave. That's just not good stuff. That's the kind of thing that if you do that. People continue to talk about it in a negative light. Two thousand years later on some dumb podcast so crassus. You also might recognize his name. He was part of the first triumvirate with pompey. And Caesar he was the third guy. Yeah I remember many so So crassus steps up. And he says you know what my father Got a triumph which is basically like a a military parade for a great military victory. And I've always been envious. I want mine. I'M GONNA make mine the defeat of Spartacus. I'm going to go get him to finance the army. I'M GONNA go pick up some of the other armies that have been defeated and kind of left scattered around Italy and reassemble them and there was one in particular. I think it was The army of the Prater who was almost captured vreni US. Some of his people ran away and crassus got them together. I believe five hundred people who had been accused of desertion and running away during battle and he brought out of the old steamer trunk in old technique for keeping your troops in line called decimation chuck which is a word that we've misused for years on this podcast but this is the real deal that he was doing and I don't think we've been misusing it for years. I think it's now part of popular terminology. Just not necessarily reduced by ten Okay Fair Enough. But what he did was he said. Okay all of you. Five hundred break up into fifty groups of ten and in every group all ten of you draw lots. Whoever draws the shortest lot gets executed and the executed fifty out of five hundred deserters in front of his troops to basically say? Hey let's get them morale up everybody. This is what happens to you if you don't fight valiantly and that was the kind of leader that he was so he's a real jerk and business in a real jerk on the battlefield to even with his own troops and a very selfish lover from what I hear. He really was. He'd be like well. That's it for me. Good luck to yourself. So he had a real bee in his bonnet to get the victory parade. He goes and chases spartacus all over Italy and there was some infighting going on which is what can happen a lot of times in a rebellion. If you don't keep everyone's spirits up so that kind of weakened his army a little bit and so in a last ditch effort Spartacus said you know what we need to do. Is We need to go. Kill crassus in front of everybody. And that's that'll do the trick. If everyone sees crassus has gone. You cut off that head. Maybe another one will not grow up in its place And that didn't work out for Spartacus. he was actually cut down in battle. His army was finally defeated They hunted down all six thousand of the survivors of the army and crucified them He was not himself crucified. Like in the movie sparks and there was never that great moment in the movie. The I'm spartacus moment. That never really happened in real life. Unfortunately They never found his body which is sort of a A sad end to this To a leader who did some pretty great things for a little while now really though because I read he was last seen. He was really close to crassus. He was headed to crass to kill him himself. And he killed two centurions in hand combat on his way to crassus before he was swarmed on like Hollywood style and cut down by like a mob of due to overwhelm them which is not a sad end. No if you're living by the sword die by the sword. That's the way to go for sure. Okay I bet you he would have preferred to kill crassus. Surena give that but if he was never faded to kill crassus that snake coiled on his head in foretold that he would feel crassus. That's the way to go. Well in the end he is gone. His rebellion squashed. But some good comes out of it. Rome kind of says you know what this taught us a great lesson. Which is maybe we should listen to the lower class a little bit more It wasn't some huge sweeping reform. Change or anything like that. I don't WanNa like sugarcoated. But there were a number of reforms that were passed that did strengthen the voice of people as a whole and they had a little bit more say in their government. Because they didn't want another spartacus to come along and then over the years like many thousands of years later like I said he was. Kinda held up is like this hero this ideal. So like the abolitionist movement in the United States held up as a hero because he was known to Free Slaves. That was how he assembled his army and he wasn't necessarily freeing slaves for the ideal of ending slavery he was freed slaves to help build up his army But I'm sure there was a certain amount of like this is a good thing that these slaves are no longer slaves. When they're you know with me that he must have entertained at least and then later on like you said Dalton Tremble wrote the script for The nineteen sixty movie directed by Kubrick on Spartacus and Dalton. Tremble was blacklisted from Hollywood. Because he was a communist or he wouldn't name names. I can't remember in Dalton. Tremble wrote that script based on a novel remind him Howard Fast who had written the novel in jail. Because he wouldn't name names on the McCarthy hearings in so Spartak has kind of became like a hero of Marxists because he freed slaves he overthrew the oppressors but he also took the oppressors wealth in redistributed. It among the lower classes which Marxists are just bonkers for.

They might by this time have been honored with the name of a common well and no power in those parts of the world could have been able to dispute it with them if we have seemed to glance with some freedom at the behavior of some governors of provinces abroad.

They're so popular in the twenty first century but in their own. Time. They were rising men not all young men. Alexander was young Hannibal was not young. But he was not old and Caesar was a mature man, I begin with Alexander because this is the oldest this is fourth century BC. His father Philip was conquer very successful. And he put Alexander toward sixteen as my memory. Alexander was successful at sixteen at eighteen again at twenty how was Alexander regarded in the court, and in Macedonia as Philip son was he seemed to be a rising star a chip off the old block or was he seen as a weak or deficient or vein in some fashion. Good evening, professor. Good evening. It's great to be here. John, thanks for having me. That's terrific question. I think that those renew L and best. Talented it. He was even the young man and just formidable if you didn't know him that well, it was easy to underestimate him. He was so young and relatively inexperienced. Father had cats giant shadow and really taken mass massive on from in the boonies to being the leading state in the Greek world revolution that Philip it undertaking creating events donating state least, the modern Macedonian state and creating the Macedonian armed forces. It was hard to believe Alexander at the age of twenty could step into his father's shoes. Let alone at do them. And yet he did. So he he was a great surprise to many people many of his subjects were bailed when he came on thrown in both the states to the north of mass and on what they dominated in those to the south. But most of many of the Greek city states, particularly an avenues. And they never thought it house vendor dominate them as you would was Alexander understood as a fighter. Ruler of kid would they have disregarded him because of his age. Absolutely. You know, the age would have been a complete turn off to the people at the time. They distrusted young men. I thought they were hunting bird and inexperienced and in table of the judgment and the skill was needed to succeed. And they really underestimated Alex Sander. He was supreme talented, and you know. Metaphor. He was the coach's son somebody who had been. Wound for success. In if he'll is entire life. But he also was smart enough to know what he didn't know. And he made sure that he had senior men around him who could fill in the blanks that he was capable of filling in and deferred to them when necessary into the early in his career. It's one of the secrets of six is success. Heels dairy is very intelligent, very good judgments. He knew when to say no to them. But he kept them around important. They were up to no end Hannibal. This is the next century the third century BC hannibal's born to forty-seven around his thirtieth birthday. He makes the big move to March on Rome. But he also is the son of a very successful military commander, hammock car, Barca, and Hamill car Barca made his sons reputation by introducing them to the army when they were in Spain. This was another chip. Off the block was he well, regarded thirty as old enough to take command into against Rome. He was very well regarded tickly army. I mean, his army cleaned power, and he had succeeded in fighting against the Spanish tribes. Getting to make his name like that. Of course, the fact that there was so famous and that he seemed to be looked like father he acted like his father. I mean that inspired confidence among demented. Army one of the great questions about Hannibal as what people thought of him on the home front. We know that the that his family had a reputation for being champions of the common man, having support of ordinary people in cartage the garbage is dominated by an oligarchy by the car Jinyan Senate. And although our sources are highly imperfectly, it seems as the Senate was two minds about Hannibal on the one hand they they respected him and what his family had achieved on the other hand, they distrusted him and his family. They practically ran an independent in thing. And he was young. So they supported him. They desperately wanted a war revenge against well there. Like, Germany after the first World War that wants to find a war of revenge against the stakes defeated. So I had a good for doing. So, but they were not willing to write him a blank check as it turns out. The Senate played Hannibal like a tool as opposed to obeying him in Hannibal never made a move the way we'll see with Caesar to take over the Senate in Carthage didn't come to that now. But we must mention Caesar Caesar is a mature person. I think he's around fifty when he crosses the Rubicon. He has become one of the senior. And most successful commanders enrollment history by conquering Gaul, bloodily and brutally over many decades. He has a very loyal the the legions of very loyal to him, but his rival Pompey at this time outshines him does that mean that Caesar is seen as an upstart as an outsider when he makes the move on Rome. Outsider. But he is seeing his enemies of always thought of him quite correctly as somebody who's unscrupulous, and who would stop it. Nothing to succeed. And they worried about him. Somebody will overturn the Roman constitution for his own and they didn't much like Pompey either the men of the Senate, and they recognize the pump EMC's similar in many ways. But they rightly recognize limits. Papi was not a puppy was not willing to do anything to get ahead. Pompey wanted in the end to be admired by the system. Here's an establishment figure. He wanted to huge power Senate recognized this number one. That to engaged in methods, the Senate considered just unacceptable. He was much more of a demagogue. And then Pompey he was much more of a populace than Pompey which made the Senate nervous. And I think the Senate rightly felt that Caesar. Just was much more than a long-term than Pompey. Whatever be awful lack the killer instinct that Caesar had in spades. So yes, he was seen as a very dangerous figure not living outside because he was a member of the Roman aristocracy navy and away seen as a traitor to his class. I've often wondered professor Crassus Crassus is killed in the east and a battle. But Crassus was the third part of the triumph a triangle of Pompey Caesar and Crassus, and I've often puzzled whether Crassus his death. This is a man who played most famously by Laurence Olivier in Spartacus movie crosses his the one who finally conquers Spartacus any celebrated because he c- he he put down the slave revolt. Does Crassus his death triggered this dispute between Caesar and Pompey the absence of a third part? I mean, that's an excellent question. If Crassus had lived, it would have made it more difficult. You might have. He might very well played a meeting will between Caesar impossibly. And I mean by no means was it impossible to have a compromise. Then Caesar crossed the Rubicon and started to civil war. I think part of a problem with the Senate chef didn't trust Caesar. What's your wanted was not that extreme? But the Senate thought where is this going to lead Pompey Crassus had been around? He might have been the guy to step in and come up with a compromise. I could easily imagine it happening in in forty nine. So you're right crisis is debt did make the stakes higher. Did raise the stakes and it didn't make more difficult for Pompey and Caesar tickets to agreement. Let's cross the line.

But he is seeing his enemies always thought of him quite correctly as somebody who's unscrupulous, and who would stop it. At nothing to succeed. And they worried about him. Somebody would overturn the Roman constitution for his own and they didn't much like Pompey either the men of the Senate and they recognize pumping similar in many ways. But they rightly saw Pompey recognized limits. Poppy was not a copy was not willing to do anything to get ahead. Pompey wanted in the end to be admired by the system. Here's an establishment figure. He wanted to have used power Senate recognize in this number one that to engaged in methods the Senate considered just unacceptable. He was much more of a demagogue, and then Pompey was much more of a populace than Pompey which made the Senate nervous. And I think the Senate rightly felt that Caesar just was much more than a long term than Pompey whatever be lack the killer instinct that Caesar. Had in spades. So yes, he was seen as a very dangerous figure not really not fighter because he was a member of the Roman aristocracy, maybe in a way seen as a traitor to his class. I've often wondered professor Crassus Crassus is killed in the east and a battle. But Crassus was the third part of the triumph a triangle of Pompey Caesar and Crassus, and I've often puzzled whether Crassus is death. This is a man who played most famously by Laurence Olivier in Spartacus movie crosses his the one who finally conquers Spartacus any celebrated because he he he put down the slave revolt. Does Crassus his death triggered this dispute between Caesar and Pompey the absence of third part? That's an excellent question. If Crassus had lived, it would have made it more difficult. You might he might very well have played a mediating role between Caesar and Pompey. And I mean by no means was it impossible to have a compromise. Then Caesar costs started to civil warranting part of the problem was that the Senate chef didn't trust Caesar Caesar. Wanted was not that extreme. But the Senate vote where is this going to lead Pompey Crassus had been around? He might have been the guy to step in and come up with a compromise. I could easily imagine it happening in in forty nine. So you're right Crassus is debt did make the stakes higher. Did raise the stakes and it did make it more difficult for Pompey and cheese too, greedy. Let's cross the line with.
