Spotify's New HiFi Subscription Tier. What Is It?

"As i'm recording this spotify just wrapped up its spotify stream on event in which it announced a bunch of stuff including new tools for creators. Monetize ing options even an ad marketplace for podcasts. Which might be too in the weeds for our purposes. Although i reserve the right to reassess that later what is probably more interesting for normal. Consumers for at the moment is the fact. That spotify is launching a new subscription product. Later this year called hi fi that will offer cd quality lossless audio. Quoting the verge. Spotify has done small tests of higher quality streaming in the past. But now it's going to launch the feature more widely with the caveat that it'll be available only in select markets and pricing is yet to be announced higher quality streaming has apparently been among the top requests from its customers as it stands today spotify tops out at three hundred and twenty. Kbps audio amazon rolled out amazon music hd in two thousand nineteen. The lossless plan costs. Fourteen dollars ninety nine cents per month or twelve dollars. Ninety nine cents per month for prime customers a premium over the standard amazon music unlimited service title. Which has supported high resolution audio since its very beginnings price slightly higher at nineteen dollars ninety nine cents per month for the hi fi plan title offers. What it calls title masters that go up too. High resolution ninety six kilohertz twenty four bit audio smaller services like cuba's have also sought to appeal to audio files with lossless streaming apple music on the other hand still lacks any kind of lossless streaming tier despite apple selling the very high end airpods max headphones and quote which you have to figure might be about to become an untenable situation.

"I've said repeatedly that. I intend to close guantanamo and i will follow through on. It was one of the signature promises of barack obama's two thousand eight campaign for the us presidency. He would close america's post. Nine eleven improvised prison for suspected terrorists at the. Us navy base at guantanamo bay in cuba. He did not nor did his successor. Donald trump this morning. I watched president obama talking about gitmo vo. He never said he would indeed. He signed an executive order to keep it open. We also threatened to add to its population. And we'll get loaded up with some bad dudes politically. We'll get a loaded up. He did not. there were forty. One prisoners still held at guantanamo bay. When trump took office one of whom was released into the custody of saudi arabia forty remained many nearing. Two decades of incarceration it now falls to us.

Are Donovan Mitchell and the Jazz True Contenders?

"So tony. Let's start this story during last year's playoffs done mitchell and jamal murray have this epic battle in the nba. Bubble shot clock down to four. Mitchell has millsaps. Automobile three took three and returns the staredown ton of matchel clutch. Three pointer for the jazz. Eventually mitchell jazz fall in dramatic fashion a game. Seven two seconds ago for the winter. Tell us about donovan. Mitchell after that loss of known donovan. Pretty well in the four years. He's been with the johnson. I don't think i've seen him data emotional in the post game. There's so many things. I just feel like we could did and we didn't and i think that's just where the hurt really comes because quite frankly i don't i give them credit but i feel like we kind of eased off the gas. You have to remember the jazz at a be in the second half of game five which was supposed to be oppose out game for them to do more and this won't happen again is extremely down and he just basically said. We're not losing in the first round of the playoffs anymore. This ain't the end. This ain't this is just the beginning man. This is just the just the beginning. And i'm ready to go. Who begin right now and so once. The cameras were gone and donovan. Mitchell was back home in utah. How how did he spend. This off. season is funny. Because i talked to somebody close to donovan mitchell about this a couple of weeks ago and one thing he said was donovan was on the phone with people like literally. You know two or three days after the season Sam less workout. You know the thing about donovan. He's a guy that goes out and he works on his craft resolutely. And you know. I think that not only. Did he work on his craft during the offseason but after that the rest of the jazz from person one person fifteen worked on their craft under all season as well. Well let's bring it forward to this year. How did mitchell in the jazz start off. The current season they started off on four and with two really bad losses unforced turnover passing out an equal. Don't runaway league beasley. They lost the minnesota timberwolves at home. In the second game of the season they will blown out and outclassed in brooklyn nets team did james harden because they hadn't traded for them and they didn't have durant is everywhere. Count it at one but rudy rudy. Did show back up on the screen and brooklyn's play it with alan at the energy so basically re irving at a bunch of role players that blasted the jazz in new york. You know jazz nation on the fan base was kind of going crazy. The jazz a couple of games where they look like world-beater. They had a couple of games where they look really back. And tony. I wanted to ask you about this moment. That happened on live television a few weeks ago. That was really widely discussed. It started at halftime of jazz. Pelicans game when the tnt broadcast crew was discussing the game. My question to the panel. Donovan mitchell is that the point of superstardom where he can take you there. Or he's still all star status. He needs to be so go. Third option really. Yes yeah i feel like it. No talent to do it. He's a great score. Grew there but if he's not score. What else can you do. And when the game ended shack starts interviewing donovan mitchell. Who's still on the court right after the jazz victory. Yeah and he says. I said tonight. That you are one of my favorite players. But you don't have what it takes to get to the next level as central purpose on wednesday to hear what you have to say about that. I that's it i mean. What were your thoughts when you first saw that exchange so the irony of the whole thing is that the actual conversation was fair. That part of the conversation that happened at halftime that part was fair. We know the donovan. Vigil is a dynamic offensive player. We know that he is a star. We know that he is an all star. Caliber guy for him to be a superstar. He has to round out his game and do everything he's got to defend. He's got a rebound. These got make plays for others. What wasn't fair is shaquille. O'neal saying hey. I don't think that you have what it takes to get to the next level as a player. And i just wanted you to hear that. What's your reaction. And i felt bad for about donovan. Because he was really dominant in that went over to pelicans he didn't deserve to be blindsided like up on live television and frankly he handled it as about as well as you handle something like that. My rookie year norms gonna get better mood. I do wonder cuba. The look on his face. Kind of indicated that he wasn't happy you know about the question but at the same time he's always been a person that knows how to express himself. I think he's a guy that's kinda. Learn how to lockout the proverbial outside noise and kind of focus on what he has to do and i think a desk one of the reasons why he's improved so much as a player.

Cuba is working on a homegrown COVID-19 vaccine program

"Cuba. The Communist run Caribbean island is soon to launch the third phase of clinical trials on its own Corona virus vaccine produced by government scientists. Government hopes the vaccine will not only end Cuba's cove in 19 crisis but become an important source of revenue for the cash strapped nation. Austria. Cuba had largely contained the outbreak. But after the country reopened to tourism, the number of daily infections and Corona virus related deaths rose to its highest point. So far from Havana will grant reports Some of the equipment Havana's Finley Institute, maybe a little outdated, but the science itself is cutting edge. This hundreds of vials passed through a sorting machine. They're part of Cuba's greatest hope for a solution to its Corona virus crisis. So but on a DOS Cuba's domestically produced cove in 19 vaccine made entirely in Cuba by Cuban researchers, so banana dos is a conjugal vaccine, meaning and androgynous fused to a carrier molecule to bolster the vaccine, stability and effectiveness. The island has much experience in this field. Having developed the meningitis B vaccine in the late 19 eighties with the same approach. Certainly the Communist run government his confidence so, but Anna dos is. The solution is already in phase two clinical trials and they aimed to vaccinate everyone on the island by the end of the year. In fact, says the director of the Finley Institute doctor, they sent their various Bencomo. There are ambitious plans to export it to the rest of Latin America commercial for what we're trying to have. In the order of $100 million during 2021. And totally will dedicate report of part of these doses to the full immunization of the country. That to happen, it will need the help of other nations. Doctor very says it's too early in the relationship with the Biden administration for the US to play a role just yet. Our make Europe Canada, So we have people participating in our drama from Italy and France. Fortunately, not today with the U. S. We hope that in the next fishery will be possible. We moved to a next step off rotation collaboration. And after, and Vasa pride, Barcelona Open son I don't know what for many Cubans, the vaccine can't come soon enough. The outbreak in Cuba was largely contained by the middle of last year after the government imposed strict measures from a curfew in Havana to daughter door health checks and an aggressive track and trace program. Anyone merely showing symptoms was placed into state run quarantine centers as well as anyone returning from abroad. Almost all flights were halted and tourism, the lifeblood of the island's economy, ground to a halt. However, eventually the economic picture became so bleak the government had to re open. Now visitors must take an obligatory PCR test at the airport and least in theory remain in home Quarantine for a day's Since the re opening, though the transmission figures in Corona virus related deaths in Cuba have crept up to their worst point since the pandemic began, one of the other girl, all those rebel in the government's daily televised updates, the covert 19 statistics have steadily risen to more than 1000 cases a day tiny in comparison to some nations like Mexico, Brazil or the U. S. It's still more than is comfortable for Cuba's overstretched health service has the island simply can't afford to buy millions of doses of an internationally produced vaccine, even from allies like Russia or China? The pressure is on the scientists working on sobered Anna dos. As Cuba's economic slump worsens. There are long queues outside most stores as people search for scarce basic goods. The recent coronavirus spike prompted the government to close down the tourism sector. Once again without millions of free spending visitors in the hotels, bars and restaurants, Cuba is hurting economically more now than at any other time since the end of the Cold War. So Madonna means sovereignty in Spanish and the government hopes the vaccine bearing that name will not only alleviate the island's health crisis, but its economic one,

U.S. to start taking in asylum-seekers Trump required to wait in Mexico

"America's Asylum system is about to change under the Trump administration. Tens of thousands of asylum seekers were pushed out of the U. S and forced to wait in Mexico while their cases worked through the system. The program was called remain in Mexico. The Biden administration has already paused that policy, and today they're announcing a complete reversal. Now some of those migrants will be allowed back into the United States. NPR's John Burnett spoke with Yashima on Calderone, a 34 year old chemist from Cuba. For the last year and a half she's been living in a beat up tenement house in Reynosa, Mexico, with 15 other Cubans. No laws off another donor. No hard drinking example. Go atomic org. She says. They feel like they have finally arrived at the light at the end of the tunnel. But there are a lot of questions and concerns about how this plan is actually gonna work. We're joined now by the person who will oversee all of its secretary of Homeland Security. Allah 100, My orcas. Thank you so much for being with us Secretary my carcass. Good morning and thank you, Rachel. There are currently tens of thousands of people with active asylum cases. How do you decide who will be let in first? Rachel. We are building a program to prioritize individuals who entered the remain in Mexico program that the Trump administration built. What we are doing is going to be triaging them essentially to prioritize those according to the date on which they first entered the program. At the same time, however, we will be sensitive to acute vulnerabilities, individuals. Who are suffering especially and seek to accelerate them as well. This will take time to build, but we are poised to begin the program later this month. Um, and guidance from the White House says that you're gonna be able to process up to 300 people a day at between what two and three ports of entry along the US Mexico border. Is that right? That is, that is correct, Rachel. It's going to take up a bit of time to scale up to that quantity of processing. But that is indeed our objective. We're very focused

Y'all have to rely y'all got to do. I should've worn atop. Man i feel. I feel under dressed. Oh man you know what. I'll always overdress when i need to be unaddressed. So bank lie is all good. But i saw valentine's day means something completely different to me end than it does to women So i just need you to give women to scoop on what they can do to do. A better job of making us happy on valentine's day you know we desire to be happy to but let's start here i i. You know mea tend to look in valentine's day as a second birthday for women. I mean we know that we're supposed to use the day to focus on intimacy closeness but a lot of us also think is also an obligation to make look good in front of her friends and co. i mean. I mean you know you better make a woman look good in front of valentine's day or you gonna have probably when you get home so a european gator is valentine's day a holiday for women. You feel like it's their queen for a day type of holiday. You know what it in my experience a lot of it that way. You know what i mean. A big midfield almost more like a pocket draining scenario like the men. Don't even see the use in doing it. Like to be completely honest. I'm one of those people who's sapping like every day is valentine's day now that's partially Make shroud by extravagant gift on that particular day. You know because you are competition with all the other women s office ladies you gotta admit if you see your co worker with a big beautiful basket sitting on her this a you got this one single rolls with a call you know happy for you feels some type of way unfortunately ladies that is kind of how men feel about it. We're not the type to you know. Always express those emotions so the data we do have those motions. We feel so much pressure because women are like literally competition with other people and their competition that does mitt and it could be a little bit right and all that so. I think that's what men have tendency to come back away. Valentine's day a little bit like us me do the bare minimum in go but unfortunately we will always do it during the bare minimum. Not a good thing at all and you know when i was growing up. I always looked at valentine's day as something for the ladies. I never really thought it was a guys thing at all. Once i got older admit women who reciprocated gifts and everything and that was kinda cool. It took me maturing am running across mature women who actually appreciated it. You know saw me and you kind of go through the same things. Yeah definitely as now. When i mentioned that they just mentioned i should preface it by saying. We're talking about this getaway exit right. So there's a lot of really mature women who see it as a holiday for love and not just competition. There are lots of women who do things that especially for their man out had women in the past really special things for me on valentine's day. As i got old now. This is one of thirty five up club right because before that you know. It's a completely different monster. But i'm here women. Do some special things extravagant things actually and of course. That was the right back. Because i felt like. It's not a competition with other women job. It's a competition between us trying to outdo each valentine's day shit right. Now give me a split let you go. And celeste talk about expectations. Your level of expectation made a plan on how long you've been in a relationship with someone so let's say you've been in a relationship with someone for about three to six months. What do you think is the proper way to handle valentine's day for her in that situation three to six months. I mean you gotta go with. At least. a bouquet of

When i was seven and when i was ten with my family but i haven't been back since then. I haven't ever been back ever since i left. So this episode deals with a question that we get asked a law when anyone learns that. We are cuban specifically that we were born there three days. Have you ever been back. Inevitably what we hear the most is. I want to go to cuba changes and this is so low added a lot of the times. I don't really know what to respond to that. I kind of just smile and say oh. Yeah that's that's interesting. And then i turned to subjects. Let's break it down so the first part. I want to go to cuba for some people. You can stop the sentence there and it's already a problem. I want to go to cuba. Those are folks who are typically in the pro embargo anti travel camp. Just saying that to a cuban american. Who's in that camp will cause some tension but saying that you want to go before it changes. I think illicit something even people who feel more comfortable end and actually might even encourage the idea of engagement and interaction between the two countries. The us in cuba. Because it suggests that you don't want cue to change the group of people that are saying this that they want to keep it before it changes those. Those people are not cuban those people are gingas or they're latinos. That are living in the us but this is a very us centric point of view because lots of people have been vacationing cuba for a very long time namely the canadians. People from the uk spaniards even australians. Make that track. Lots of people go to cuba. And it's not so taboo or forbidden. So cuban americans specifically cuban-americans with family in the island have been able to go to cuba for the entirety of time line. Were about to describe. Tourism to cuba can be divided. I think into three different stages. The first one is before nineteen fifty-nine before the revolution where americans were traveling to cuba nonstop. No problems if you've ever been to the keys of florida or key west. It's ninety miles from cuba and to this day if you travel there you see a bunch of old posters from the nineteen fifties and nineteen forty s. I traveled to cuba. Four dollar. cuba was open to americans end. Americans were coming in partying beautiful island and it was easy and cheap from key us then came the revolution and things changed entirely. Cuba didn't even think about tourism until almost the fall of the soviet union because it was out there in the middle of the caribbean trying to build entirely new indifferent economy who has time for tourism. After the fall of the soviet union cuba started to rebuild its tourist economy restrictions for americans. Traveling to cuba have existed since the embargo. Which has been in place since nineteen sixty two so the embargo the set of sanctions placed by the united states on cuba. The intention of the embargo. According to the united states is to encourage via sanctions for the cuban government and not be communist and potentially become democratic. Some of the restrictions include other countries not being able to trade with cuba for fear of consequences placed by the united states. Americans have not really been able to travel to cuba unless you're going for a very coordinated trip for example. A student trip or church trip in two thousand sixteen obama came out and said that americans be able to travel to cuba. I do not believe we can keep doing the same thing for over five decades and expect a different result. Moreover does not serve america's interests or the cuban people to try to push cuba towards collapse rushed to go. That's when people decided that they needed to go if they were going to go before. It changes recording this. In february of twenty twenty one trump reversed obama's policies travel restrictions returned for americans and right before trump leaves office.

Those people are not cuban those people are gingas or they're latinos. That are living in the us but this is a very us centric point of view because lots of people have been vacationing cuba for a very long time namely the canadians. People from the uk spaniards even australians. Make that track. Lots of people go to cuba. And it's not so taboo or forbidden. So cuban americans specifically cuban-americans with family in the island have been able to go to cuba for the entirety of time line. Were about to describe. Tourism to cuba can be divided. I think into three different stages. The first one is before nineteen fifty-nine before the revolution where americans were traveling to cuba nonstop. No problems if you've ever been to the keys of florida or key west. It's ninety miles from cuba and to this day if you travel there you see a bunch of old posters from the nineteen fifties and nineteen forty s. I traveled to cuba. Four dollar. cuba was open to americans end. Americans were coming in partying beautiful island and it was easy and cheap from key us then came the revolution and things changed entirely. Cuba didn't even think about tourism until almost the fall of the soviet union because it was out there in the middle of the caribbean trying to build entirely new indifferent economy who has time for tourism. After the fall of the soviet union cuba started to rebuild its tourist economy restrictions for americans. Traveling to cuba have existed since the embargo. Which has been in place since nineteen sixty two so the embargo the set of sanctions placed by the united states on cuba. The intention of the embargo. According to the united states is to encourage via sanctions for the cuban government and not be communist and potentially become democratic. Some of the restrictions include other countries not being able to trade with cuba for fear of consequences placed by the united states. Americans have not really been able to travel to cuba unless you're going for a very coordinated trip for example. A student trip or church trip in two thousand sixteen obama came out and said that americans be able to travel to cuba. I do not believe we can keep doing the same thing for over five decades and expect a different result. Moreover does not serve america's interests or the cuban people to try to push cuba towards collapse rushed to go. That's when people decided that they needed to go if they were going to go before. It changes recording this. In february of twenty twenty one trump reversed obama's policies travel restrictions returned for americans and right before trump leaves office. Cuba was placed back on the list of state. Sponsors of terrorism

"New partner of the s lions. Why have we started working with no ema. Thanks dan so what we realized very early on is that no ema is truly patient centric and what we mean by that is. They're really focused on having a positive impact for the individuals so they sought collaboration with the us alliance and people living with tse very early in the development process and so we connected when they started to design their clinical program. Not afterwards they invited. Tse scientific experts to their advisory board. They've proactively engaged with tse families. And you know. In that advisory board a contribution from a parent who was invited to the board was considered equally valid as important as those of the attending scientists clinicians and drug developer's synonymous collaborative approach focusing on the needs of individuals with tse aligns. Very well with the us. Alliances goals to provide early diagnosis and offer better treatment so that those living can truly live their lives to their full potential and now that new is getting ready to launch this clinical trial. What are the next steps. So new emas clinical study with their negative.

"Head of state. His presidential term from nineteen forty to nineteen forty. Four was mostly the same as the previous years had been. He continued the social reforms. He already started he even included some pro union policies. The biggest difference was that batista no longer felt the need to keep his relationship with the us out of the spotlight. The cuban people knew who he was. They voted for his ideas and his idea was to strengthen the ties with the us as part of that plan during world war. Two cuba entered the war on the side of the allies to pay for the war. Effort batista imposed new taxes. But at the same time batista was making new. Trade deals that greatly favoured american business. That's where things backfired to cubans. It was almost like batista was more interested in helping the us than he was in helping cuba by nineteen forty four. The people were making it clear that they were tired of batista's brand of corporatist populism man who had once been an upstart revolutionary was now an intractable part of the political establishment in the next election. Batista's handpicked successor. Lost to his old ally turned rival. Ramon grau but teesta saw the writing on the wall. He decided to quit while he was ahead and move his family to florida in daytona beach. Batista finally got to relax and live the highlife. All the money he'd made from working with the us and the last decade bought him a spot. In american high society he met movie stars in dignitaries and mobsters like lucky luciano and meyer lansky. Many of them were men like him. Who'd worked their way up in a system that tried to keep them down but try as he might. Batista couldn't get his mind off of cuba. He missed the adoration the power he needed to be back in the game. So while still in florida batista formed a new cuban political party and announced that he was running for senate. He ran his entire campaign from the us and amazingly he won when batista returned to cuba he felt rejuvenated and ready to take his country into the new post war world after he assumed his new office in nineteen forty nine. He declared his candidacy for the next presidential election. Still a couple of years away. But but t stood didn't understand that cuba had continued to grow without him. The nascent democracy was inching its way forward but teesta symbolized the turmoil and dictatorships of the past as the nineteen fifty. Two presidential election approached but teesta was horrified to discover that he was coming in third in the polls surely he told himself his opponents. Were rigging the vote after all he had seen firsthand. How widespread graft and corruption were in the cuban government. Worse though was the thought of being humiliated in an electoral loss if he lost now fall all the way back down to the bottom of the social ladder. The teesta couldn't let that happen so in the spring of nineteen fifty two. He.

"Your favorite cuban dynamic deal is back at it again and this time we have immigration story. I'm carmen and i'm freda and welcome to take it easy carmen. I know you're going to be sharing a lot with us today. Where do you wanna start carmen. If my story. Oh god over the course of my life. I've told the story countless times and every single time tell. Everyone is always so appalled end. It's remarkable it is remarkable story end yet for me. It doesn't really feel that way because it feels like just another thing in my life and on top of that. It's something that happened so long ago. I immigrated when. I was only three years old and so a lot of the details of the story are the recollection of a three year old. And there's also the fact that as i said it is a pretty remarkable story. There's a lot it's not just a lot emotionally but it's a lot politically. It's a lot economically and natural that my parents have really wanted to dive into the subject. Too much over the years at this point it's been over twenty years and only now away really starting to feel like my mom specifically is opening up about any of this but it's been really hard so that's why i wanted to open up and also i just wanna say i'm really excited to share my story because i think the stories are important to conceptualize where we're coming from in the grand scheme of this podcast to just give you a little bit more insight into who we are freed as story is coming at some point soon so we hope that you will tune in for that as well yeah carmen. I think it would be great to hear a little bit more. About what got you to this point. You've been able to have any conversations with your family around your story in terms of asking just to ask my family over. The years hasn't been very open. I i often will approach the conversation and say. Hey mom. can you tell me about the time of time we spent in guantanamo and my mom would say what do you want to know. You already know everything. I already told you everything. And that's kind of dismissive way of going about it. But in a sense. I understand where she's coming from to. She just want to talk about it and the same with my dad and my brother will. He was only eight so he remembers a lot more. He's a lot more open. Now that i have this podcast. I'm able to sort of approach it from a more structured way and say. Hey look for the podcast. I want to know xyz and so they'll start to open up able to ask more pointed questions. But in the past. When i've asked in a more open ended way it's not been something they wanna get into which i think anyone can understand once we go into the story so let's begin yet. So the year is nineteen ninety four and it's august and i'm three years old in nineteen ninety. Four cuba was going through. What is known as the video espec- and this is a special period of time in history when it followed the fall of the soviet union which was a big support to cuba and cuba started experiencing severe shortages of resources from things. Mom has told me that she would go to the store and there would be no food on the shelves to buy. It was difficult to come across basic necessities like soap. Medicine was difficult to find simple medicine. You would need to go to a hospital or have like a hookup to get simple. Things like aspirin and so life became increasingly difficult. I don't remember any of this. My life is for all intents and purposes pretty happy. I'm just a little kid running around the neighborhood and looking forward to starting school my parents at this time new or my dad knew someone who owned the boat fishermen and he had been planning to leave the country with his family on. This book and my dad was a pediatrician. He knew this man from seeing his kids as patients and also from their childhood they grew up together in this really comment like cuba is a very small place uneven. Cuban communities are pretty small in the sense that everybody knows each other in some way. And so this man emi. My dad agreed that my dad and my mom my brother and i this boat with them it was not a raft or anything that he and his family had built over years buying parts. You know it's your first time. Bring up the word raft. And i know that some of you might have heard of the cuban rafter crisis which happened in nineteen ninety four so we know that a lot of cubans like tens of thousands of cubans came over trying to get to the us or at least trying to escape cuba and a lot of them were on makeshift. Rafts put together from pieces of equipment that they found so. It's really helpful that you carmen. You're able to find someone with a boat that was meant to be about let it started the bolt right yes vote. It didn't start off as bad or as a tra- bobby kerman quick aside. Did you ever hear this story. I think it happened later on way. After the nineties there was a scoop of cubans who came over to the us in a truck. No no. I've never seen her but it didn't surprise me. Actually yeah in. This was an actual pickup truck. That floated okay. So it's ridiculous. That's amazing that is as please look this up. You need to see photos of this. It's amazing they made it over to the. Us and a lot of people were following the story because of how ridiculous it was so yeah. I just wanted to take a moment to add color to the variety of transportation methods. That were used at this time. But you know back to little carmen and her boat and this is a common theme in a lot of cuban stories like the sheer amount of absurdity. A lot of things anyway so we left in the wee hours of the morning before it was even light outside. We got on this boat and we left from this river. Called shielded santo

"Nineteen sixty four. So that seven years before the pig virus outbreak. The department of defense had sent this proposal to the cia. And they said if you wanna mess up cuba spray. The bunga parasite onto their sugarcane. It'll cut production way down. And even help quote the expansion of us influence over the world suga market and quote and the proposal didn't stop there. They said to make things even worse for cuba. You should release hoof and mouth disease to go off today cows. This suggested that they were up for an all out. Assault on cuba's food supply. I was stunned. I would stunned someone in the department of defense thought that this was a guard. Here i mean. What kind of person was that. What kind of monster. What kind of frankenstein was over there. In the bowels of dod concocting proposal did you. Did you see anything in those documents. That would suggest they did end up going through with any of this. No i didn't and after poring through those lbj files for a week. I found nothing that would indicate that any of these operations were carried out. So you know my hunch. Is that the united states. Does not do that kind of thing. But i could be wrong. Wendy keep in mind back in grad school. I would've told you. The united states just target foreign leaders converter either. We don't think they did this. Bunga and hold masters as thing about mainly because we couldn't find evidence of an outbreak of either disease in cuba around this time and raleigh. The cia agent told me not to read too much into these kinds of proposals. She said her experience. They will often wild suggestions at the cia. That didn't go anywhere. Raleigh was like you know in this way. Being a cia agent is a lot like being a podcast. I it's very similar to. I'm sure the kind of thing she you know. If you're having like a story conference and people come up with wacky ideas and everybody knows our wacky ideas and everybody laughs us. Yeah right no way you know you can't. You can't completely sensor people for their harebrained ideas. People have them and then you shut them down but but what he's inning poisoning pig or doing something that shouldn't check innocent innocent bystanders in a population that that's unconscionable that wouldn't happen but of course raleigh worked with these guys decades. She might have drunk to the old cia kool aid. So i called up a bunch of academics research. U s cuban relations at this time and none of them were quite so certain that the cia was off the hook for this in fact. One cuban academic who didn't want to go on the record told me that the idea that poisoning peaks with some line. The us wouldn't cross was kind of preposterous. She said the us in cuba were basically at war. They were enemies. The cia had trained army ten years earlier to try to overthrow the cuban government that ended up killing thousands of cubans if they will.

My first language we grew up in the same neighborhood families that was political prisoners I went to wholesale Matisse four and literally was dressed enough Cuban flag while walking down the street so you can't get Mark Cuban. Listening to them, talk about their Cuban identity, the necesiated distinction between being an immigrant to the United States and being what she says many Cubans see themselves as refugees and I do think that there is a difference because you're a refugee from a place you cannot go back to. You can't go back for a reason because you were exiled or because you're gonNA get killed if you go back or because there's really no way back for a very long time about three years ago they're super. Cuban selves began working with Bacardi a marketing agency for the company approached them to write a show about a brand of rum that originated in Cuba.

"When Fidel Castro sometimes called Cuba's maximum leader was live. We'll put it mildly hit a lot of enemies especially in the Cuban exile community in Miami Florida. After Castro rose to power in Nineteen fifty-nine tens of thousands of Cubans fled their homes for the United States. One of them was Jose or Pepperdine Bosh. He was one of Castro's fiercest opponents. He also ran McCarty you know company that makes run there's nobody executive or family member who feels more personally betrayed by Fidel. Castro, than pinball himself this is Tom gjelten author of Bacardi and the long fight for Cuba originally Bosh actively supported. Castro but that changed when he saw the Cuban leader was a massive power and from his perspective turning into A. Dictator within a few years Bosh.

I was just reading the other day of memories of his lawyer who talked about how the CIA approach Pene Bausch and got him to rent a vote that became later used by the way to sabotage sugar exports from Cuba. This is just one of several examples of how Bosh tried to bring down Castro's communist government. He bought an airplane and he based it for time in Nicaragua and for a time and Costa Rica and had it outfitted with bombs. And his idea was that he was going to recruit a pilot who is going to fly the plane to Cuba and bomb oil refineries in Cuba he was he wanted to be carefully didn't want to bomb any civilian population centers, but he figured that if he could put the oil refineries business that would be sort of a very big contribution to this overthrow movement that's wild to think that like the the leader of a major international company is secretly trying to behind the oil facilities of of another country.

"In some ways, the nuclear standoff froze the military balance between east and West because nobody dared to use that nuclear weapons that it also made it extremely dangerous because just a spark miscalculation would resolve not only in a conventional war, but a nuclear war that would result in millions and millions of the Talibans. In both countries and around the world, there's a real fear that this might happen. People are preparing building bunkers below people's houses, civil defense drills. A lot of people growing up from that period remember drills in stools in which they had to dive under your desk and duck and cover. In nineteen, sixty, one while school children all over the nation are learning to hide from nuclear fallout under their desks. The US inaugurates a new president. John. Kennedy. President Kennedy draws a very stark contrast with the leader of the Soviet Union at the time Nikita Khrushchev. By the way that's the way Michael Dobbs pronounces it and it slightly closer to the Russian pronunciation. The American pronunciation is often crews jets, but anyway. To world leaders. Look and act completely differently Kennedy of course very good looking smooth. The picture refinement the has a full head of hair. Chris. Joel looks what he was, which was present from Ukraine. Almost a foot shorter candidate and practically bald. Much tougher than Kennedy in some ways, and of course, says this huge different in age. When is inaugurated? Khrushchev is sixty sex and Kennedy is more than twenty years younger. He's forty three from christus point of view. He was completely untested a bit of a playboy and thought Kennedy was a young man he could push around. One point he says that man is young enough to be my son. These two very different men will soon be on opposite sides of the Cuban missile crisis. And of course, there's another nation and another leader involved. Belcastro has been Prime Minister of Cuba since nineteen, fifty nine when his socialist revolution. The american-backed leader General Henson Battista. Del Is an extraordinary character. One of the great characters of history over six feet tall he was called the horse. By his followers and he reminded the Soviet leaders of their youth in breathing new life and energy into the Communist movement that was a kind of romantic dimension to this very soon after he comes to power President Kennedy Provokes, Castro's anger when he launches the ill-fated Bay of Pigs invasion or as it's known in Cuba, the invasion of Playa Huron. Kennedy spends a force of exiled Cubans to try and overthrow Castro, but it doesn't work. Rapidly surrounded by Castro's forces. It's sort of bizarre stuff from the US point of view. But. Although this is a fiasco Kesri's convinced that Kennedy is going to try again and in fact, throughout the end of nineteen, sixty, one, the beginning of nine, hundred, sixty two, there's no armed invasion but there are other attempts by the US to sabotage Castro's regime and eventually to overthrow Castro. So Castro, who is this strong romantic figure to summon the Soviet Union appeals to them for military? Support. He's essentially asking for defensive backup. He wants to make sure the US can't overthrow him. But Christoph sees an even bigger opportunity at that time in nineteen, sixty, one, nine, hundred, sixty to the Soviet Union is trailing behind the US in the production of nuclear weapons. So Christoph perceives the opportunity of correcting this nuclear imbalanced by deploying hundreds of nuclear weapons to Cuban shores just right off the coast of. Florida right on the doorstep of the United States. So Christoph, offers Castro, nuclear weapons, and the Cuban leader accepts. In July and August of nineteen, sixty, two, the first shipments make their way to the islands. The defensive weapons arrived first, they could only shoot something at short range like a plane flying over. The nuclear warheads which could be used to attack the US mainland are secretly on their way. The CIA has no idea but they do know that something is up there aware of a military buildup they're aware of Soviet troops moving to Cuba. You'll though there disguised as agricultural technicians. In fact, they were all told to where chequered civilian clothes and the Russian soldiers joked about this. They said this is operatives checkered shirt, but the US intelligence quickly picked up the fact that there were surface to air missile sites ringing Cuba. The question was, why are the Soviets bringing all these troops and weapons to Cuba? A debate in the about this in some well, obviously, it's to defend something even more important. Something like nuclear weapons but a lot of people don't believe that's possible. The consensus within the agency and within the government was the Soviets would not dare to send nuclear missiles to Cuba because they've never done that before they're never station nuclear missiles outside the Soviet Union itself. As suspicion heightens in the US John Kennedy, sends his brother Bobby to meet with the Soviet ambassador who assures him Soviets will never send atomic weapons to Cuba. So with this CIA consensus and the word of the Soviet ambassador JFK goes on National Television September Thirteenth Nineteen Sixty two. Remote but I will repeat the conclusion that I reported last week. That these new shipments do not constitute a serious threat to any other part of this hemisphere he makes what amounts to a promise. If at anytime. The communist build up in Cuba. Where to endanger Or interfere with security in any way. Or. Cuba should ever become an offensive military base. Of significant capacity for the Soviet Union. Then, this country will do whatever must be done to protect its own security. And that of its allies. Kennedy says at that time well, if it turns out but the Soviets SPEC sheet do send nuclear missiles to Cuba. We will not tolerate this. We will make sure that the Soviets withdraw those missiles. So he drew a line in the sand, well before the missile crisis. Meanwhile as Kennedy makes that speech nuclear weapons are headed to the island, they'll arrive in three days. But. The US won't know this until.

"This episode contains explicit language vicious history listeners malcolm gobble all here. I've written a new book called talking to strangers and it's about the mistakes we make in our interactions with people we don't know talking to strangers features features con artists and socio pass and spies it talks about how drinking affects the way we make sense of others i spent time with a psychologist who ran the c._i._a.'s interrogation in program and the man who spotted bernie madoff before anyone else and i try to get to the bottom of a heartbreaking encounter between a police officer and a civilian and which resulted in the death of a young woman named sandra bland in texas. I think it's a book that will prompt a lot of conversations and arguments which as as you know from revisionist history is what like to do. I'm very proud of it and there's something else. I'm proud of with talking to strangers. After making four seasons of revisionist vision history i've fallen in love with a kind of storytelling that could be done to a podcast and i decided that i wanted to bring that same approach to the audio book talking to strangers. Normally an audio book is just the author or someone. The author hires reading into a microphone. I didn't wanna do that. I i want to make this audio book of talking to strangers as compelling as an episode of revisionist history so if you listen to the audio book you'll hear hear the voices of the people i interview and if i'm describing some historical event you'll hear archival tape for courtroom scenes. We have actors reimagining meaning what happened. There's music an extraordinary song by genomics scoring. We even have excerpts from other audiobooks and podcasts like the fantastic mastic believed from n._p._r. And michigan radio i think the result is a completely different kinds of audiobook experience much more powerful moving engrossing anyway rather than describe it. I thought i would give you a special preview so here.

"Yes i i really i really believe that there is joan generation in cuba the the we have hope steel they want us steel there on but like i said i feel like we should do more because we are talking about a reality tokyo government having had been in the power for over fifty years and this is something that that it doesn't go just like that i believe on we we all have to work hard for it we are we are looking at what is going on in venezuela right now on all these all these kind of mentality gobernment spreading to tour the whole lot in america and i really believe we should get together down five harder these kind of government oppressed people thank you for your call at she obey us when you think about the future of cuba and think about the the us policy toward cuba were you supportive of the obama administration's opening up or or reduce say you're more in line with president trump saying that's the wrong message to send to this regime out god that was absolutely in favor of the abana policy change in part because i just thought nothing else was working and it was just time to try anything really to try to move dial a little bit i do want to say that this brain drain is actually one of the most serious problems facing cuba because what's happening is that the people that are staying behind and becoming involved in government are not the best in the brightest the best and the brightest are either leaving the country for the united states or europe or other latin american countries because they don't just come here this is a generation that has a very broad i asked fra but also the the folks who are you know really really best and bright who stay behind ten to sort of take an apolitical stance and do things outside of official ripples and you know government actually has a very difficult time recruiting people at great example of that is the ministry of culture where you would think that some of the most.

"Patriot friday when you go to cuba do you hear a lot of voices like we're hearing from roberto they're very much so and that's one of the things that a the one the one hand is very discouraging because you hear that concept of there's nothing for me here my government doesn't listen to me there's no hope there's no future i want to be a foreigner and and it's a horrible brain drain for cuba and you can just see how that in the long term is bodes does not bode well for the future of cuba but i also find some hope in what the caller is saying and i find some hope in the streets of havana because i will tell you one thing the creativity and energy of the cuban people in particularly of that young generation should not be underestimated and and i'm also struck by the fact that we have bought into this concept of nothing changes nothing will ever change you know and and it's correct i mean the the pace of changes glacial but someone once said things don't change and they change and they change all of a sudden and and i am a firm believer and i believe in the cuban people and that's this is why i supported the obama administration so strongly the message that president obama delivered in that brilliant speech was seasick way the yes we can and it isn't that the united states is going to change cuba the change has to come from cuba and it is that generation that will make the change and roberto any listen to mr friday they're talking about about hope and energy does that ring true to you do you hear from your friends that maybe they still have that hope that things will change.
