"In geneva ahead of the conference. Daniel johnson sat down with the newly-installed head of you and humanitarian affairs. Martin griffiths who recently returned from his first visit to afghanistan now under taliban control he called on the taliban to recognize the scale of need across the country and urge them to respect the rights of women and girls. But we need on. Monday is a focus of the international community on the needs of the people in afghanistan.

Member states are needs the needs the people have aniston and for them to pledge partnership with us to meet those needs in very difficult circumstances you in kabul very recently and you met the taliban interim leaders at the time there were some women there now. People are desperate to know about women's rights in securing women's and girls' rights going forward. What would you say to them. Well i've worked with the taliban and around the taliban and despite the taliban for twenty twenty five years and i negotiated with them in nine hundred ninety eight when they were last in power on exactly the same issues that we redressing earlier this week with them. I raised two issues with the taliban leadership. The first of which was the rights of women and girls to all that is normal in society whether it's work whether it's education whether it's freedom of movement all these things and secondly i spoke to them about what is needed as an environment in which humanitarian agencies can flourish and function. But on the first. What they said to me was that we promise that the rights of women and girls will be respected subject to the religion and culture of afghanistan. This is a work in progress. And we've been here before and so we need to have a lot more discussion in the days to come in the weeks to come about what that really means. And that's very important for the people of afghanistan but it's also important for the community because of course there have been demonstrations in the center of kabul. We've heard reports of whips being used so that isn't something that is acceptable to the international community. Presumably although i suppose you would say you'll priorities now while those most in need. So can you tell us about. These needs if i could. I say and this is what the taliban themselves told me. When i was there in kabul is that they have come to power sooner than they thought. They're unprepared for this. They look around the country and we see completely different practices in different parts of the country. I spoke to the leaders of ngos in kabul some of whom were saying that in certain provinces they were treated very well by the child by women were treated well by telemann and others..

"At least fifteen. People have died in a massive fire at refugee camp in southern bangladesh. Home mainly to ruin this fled neighbouring myanmar. In four hundred are still missing. That's the latest on tuesday from u. n. teams in refugee volunteers on the ground at cox's bazar. We need to rebuild quickly ahead of the upcoming monsoon. Is you in children's fund spokesperson. James tells you a news. Daniel johnson what we know the mum. It is Across an area that really is the largest settlement for refugees planet. Life is already very difficult based on the intensity the lack of space which they leave and there's been a fire like yesterday bangladesh. Tom literally his ripped through what is arena refugee camp now. Un teams on the ground have been reporting. I've the last twelve hours not really ever seen anything of this scale and intensity that has through homes. What you've got ten people living in a small shanty as a family or as an extended family so you end reporting at the moment that at least fifteen people dead full hundred a missing tens of thousands of again already living a very difficult situation tens of thousands of lost what they call their homes and whatever meager positions they had so it's a disaster it's unfolding. It really looked like despite all the efforts to bring it under control the fire it continued to ride for the camps and it really any slowed once it reached my in roads and water bodies. Do you know what started the fire. Nobody there is no clarity at the moment there. Typical those in charge of looking into the investigation and causes and so on doing that right now and they say no from word on on cause of the fire. But you've got ten people up to ten people living in each shelter mainly women and children. I understand yeah. The thing with the camp saw that we are talking about. I mean almost half a meter. At least four hundred and fifty thousand ringgit children are in those camps they making up just over one into now again a staggering numbers but that's four hundred and fifty thousand children who already living very difficult circumstances or went through horrendous circumstances to have to move in the first place at really is to make things much worse for children from a unicef point of view what we try to do with these kids. Don't just about helped back saying it's about learning centers unfortunately we many of those learning santa's of burnt to the ground. So you for all these kids who enjoyed son much indicted i live is unimaginably hod just a bit
You can't just walk in and start taking pictures: War photographer on Yemen crisis
"This is daniel. Johnson picture the war in yemen. And chances are you've come across. An image ought to buy war photojournalist. Giles clarke on his latest trip to the country. That's been ravaged by six years of war. He based himself in an abandoned school that time to hundreds of displaced people. The photographs he took and the stories. He heard feature in a campaign to raise awareness about their plight. It's inside yemen portrait of resilience and it wasn't easy as he explained when i spoke to him for this. Un news interview the portraits resilience brother like approach other issues such as malnutrition mothers children victims of war that flee whenever fighting against and living in and around the hugs become impossible so these portraits have resilience are meant to show the side of humanity that we don't often see in these camps. These idee settlements often very difficult to get to of course yemen itself is difficult to get to but to get into some of these more remote camps it was my goal and although this woman is actually on the edge of aden which is slightly more accessible than or lot more accessible than many. That's probably why. I picked this particular place. Because i was able to build up trust with some of the subjects and address the concerns with a little bit more time when usually has in conflict zones. Maybe set the scene for me. What is it that you see when you arrive at this camp outside aden. What has to remember that this over four million people now displaced within yemen itself who have been moved pushed out various regions and many of them fled to the south and a number six seven hundred thousand of those make that way to from the northern regions particularly around data which was the caught that made the news twenty eighteen. Another came down the coast. You'll see in the inside yemen campaign that we created that. We wanted to tell the story about this. Taking the movement is mass movement of people so when you arrive in these places in yemen a lot of these places are very informal. There's no real structure that's usually a local camp to the leader if you like. And the un doing their best to try and provide aid agencies local agencies doing their best to try and provide supplies wfp and all the different groups that are trying to help these people who are now living very much in limbo In very rough crude makeshift shelters in this case. It was abandoned school which made the sort of a sect. That's often what i try and do. When i were trying to tell the stories find somewhere that i can work within and get to know people and sort of get an understanding before i go ahead and start work. So how long did it take you to build up a rapport with these displaced families in this abandoned school before you can press the shutter. How long does that take started. Working on the idea for poor chaser resilience. It really came from wanting to give some dignity to those who i'm working with the story. Hard life up rooted experience of trauma. And you have to remember the trauma. These people have been through and the going through so for traits resilience was to try and show really without doing too much but just putting them in front of my field division. I realize that you're dealing with people who have extraordinary resilience. These people really do have to deal with stuff that we would never have to think about here in comfortable of first world countries and often that takes time i mean i i went to aden in twenty eighteen and i've spent you know really weeks in that school that time And so you'll face becomes noreen and people begin to ignore you. Bet you know you're already sort of all the way to accept it when you start getting ignored. So how does it work. I mean you're in this setting and families are going about their business and you'll de to take photographs. Presumably you have a fix or someone who can speak for you especially in this situation. I don't have much time because you are outside the city security situation. That's really what you have to take into the people who look enough in the case of working with trump. We are very wary of where we were kim. What's going on around us. I mean i have to be in a bubble concentrating on my subjects on my work. But i also have to be very aware of the situation outside my sphere of vision and you stand out so you don't put anybody you're working with at risk or anybody who you're photographing at risk so very delicate process. It's always has been. I suppose trying to get to the heart of the story the key thing but bearing in mind all the outside influences but of course nothing to what these people have been
Traumatic waiting game for Syrians unsure of the fate of detained loved ones
"Ten years of war in syria there are likely. Tens of thousands of detainees across the country held by the government and opposition groups. A traumatic waiting game for the families unsure of their fate in an interview with. Us news daniel. Johnson writes investigator. Hannie mig alley from the commission of inquiry on syria explains what steps. The international community is taking to resolve the situation and what obstacles it still faces. It's really a very very short picture. After ten years of conflict over half the population are now displaced. Many of the cities are in. Rebel is a staggering twelve point. Four million syrians are food. Insecure international aid and assistance is being denied because the borders are being closed. There's only one crossing left to bring outside aid into syria. Necessarily do it through the rascasse. Which many aid organizations are reluctant to do because it tends to then be diverted by the government in syria to the most neediest places population has suffered aerial bombardments chemical attacks Arbitrary arrests in the disappearances the inside the country more than six million internally displaced in horrific conditions. Now it's winter if you see the pictures of slumps where comes setup etcetera so we're prioritizing of course a way to stop the conflict now immediately so that people can begin to tackle the real problems. They're facing to live within country. That's been devastated by ten years
'Black grief and white grievance' at New Yorks New Museum
"Now. The new museum in new york this week open grief and grievance art and morning in america and exhibition originally conceived for the museum by the hugely influential curator of queen ways or before. He died in two thousand nine hundred nineteen grief and grievance features thirty seven artists to address the theme of morning commemoration and loss in response to the racist violence experienced by african american communities the title the museum says refers to quote the intertwined phenomena of black grief and a politically orchestrated white grievance against each structures and defines contemporary american social and political life. Curatorial advisory group has worked together to realize an interpreter. Basil's vision maximiliano gio knee of the new museum. The artist glenn ligon in ways. As regular curatorial collaborator mark. Nash and owe me beckwith scenic creator of the museum of contemporary art in chicago. He's just been appointed chief curator of the guggenheim museum in new york editor in the americas. Helen stolis spoke to beckwith about the exhibition. I wondered what's it been like bringing the show to its final stages making sure that oakley's incredible vision has been realized. What was your thinking through the process to make sure you've got this kind of final end stage oak. We have a brial mind. There were always so many things that he was thinking about and working on and he can have an idea a decade ago that manifests itself into a show much much later and so his ability to kind of hold and juggle things Intellectually and mentally that then get realized later was uncanny honestly the more that i read essays of his from about ten years ago i realized the core of some of this thinking was already there especially the core of ideas in grief ingredient. So all that is to say that this actually is unlikely to be. Oh quiz show believe it or not. They'll be more coming more things to watch and see. The man's ambitions were amazing and so lars they will extend extend far past life But in terms of grief and grievance started as a lecture series for harvard and oh a curator. He thinks through art a curious interesting. That i'm still speaking about him in present tense and so he thinks through ours and he started then to take. These ideas That he'd been mulling over these ideas around. What really are the kind of core conditions of american race relations. Where did they begin. What catalyzed them and what are the ramifications of that core This sense of black loss and a sense of white grievance let really in his mind got catalyzed around the civil war. What are those ramifications for the american polity right now our process as curatorial advisors which is what we've been calling ourselves has really been about trying to round out oh quiz vision where it was necessary. Okay already had a rather. Set schematic for the show. He had core objects that he was interested. In working with a painting of awesome blogs painting by daniel johnson another awesome. Blah's painting by jack whitten and a painting regime michel basquiat. He was really interested in these three objects as the ways to anchor away of of both thinking through reactions to Black and justice but also aesthetic forms that moved between abstraction and figuration between forms that are legible and gestures that deal. Mostly i think with the monochromatic. So these being the kind of catalyzing ideas for the show. were great signposts for us so then began to work with those themes and ideas for the rest of the checklist.
Rights expert appeals to countries to return nationals from Syrias squalid camps
"Of women and children who remain an arbitrary detention without end in camps in northeast syria must be helped homes the countries of origin atop independent ryan sex but has insisted an appeal to well over fifty countries. Whose nationals languishing. In the alcohol and roy centers because of their alleged links to isolate extremists. Special reputa- finola neo loin. Told you news's daniel. Johnson that many western european countries could do more to bring them home. So the scale of the challenge facing in syria is that we have over sixty four thousand people mostly women and children who are being held in camps in northeast syria in alcohol and regs camps primarily. It's been heartbreaking. Hasn't it listening to the grandmothers of those who are still detained in these camps. What are they telling you. So my mandate has had a lot of engagement with families including grandmothers grandmothers who are literally watching their grandchildren and their daughters starve on cell phones watching at sat with these grandmothers. And watch these images. And this is. It's it's profoundly heartbreaking because more than anything else they are completely powerless. Their governments are refusing to intervene and if those grandmothers were to send even packages of food or clothing or even any money to their daughters or their grandchildren to take them out of the extremity of the situation. They're in they would be prosecuted for assisting or giving material support to terrorism in multiple countries fifty seven unnamed countries. According to your last press release. Could you be a bit more specific about where these countries are always all regions of the world. It's across the globe. I mean we go from a to y afghanistan. Albania canada china denmark egypt poland portugal romania spain. Saudi arabia sudan to gca stan united kingdom of great britain and northern ireland. The united states and yemen. So these are countries that are spread across the globe but it is notable that. There's a really significant number of nationals from western states countries. Who have both the means and the capacity to bring their nationals home and are refusing to do so. Do you think there's an appetite to bring these people home. Though i think you have to create the conditions conducive to bring them home we the mandate i've been in countries where they have been brought home and the one thing i have seen is that governments are prepared to spend political capital to make the case for children and to accept their responsibilities to women and children and that requires an act of political will. It requires the language of compassion. It requires the language of comfort. It requires the language of calling children. And what's most challenging here. Is that a number of states. The states who called themselves human rights activists the states who say they have human rights foreign policies states who say that they are feminist in their foreign policies are not prepared to bring their women and children home. And so that's profoundly disappointing.
Many Tigray refugees entering Sudan with nothing but their clothes: UNHCR
"Nearly sixty thousand people. From ethiopia's volatile tigray region have now crossed the border to remote southeastern sudan optimal than two months of fighting many with just the clothes on their backs. The emergency has created a massive protection challenge for the un refugee agency in sudan. Unhcr which is doing everything. It can't provide what they need as spokesperson. Xl bishop tells us news is daniel johnson. I've just been on a mission to the east. Where i have looked at the response in relation to the refugee influx from ideo. Peel right. so we're going to talk about the refugee influx which comes after two and a half months of fighting water. The numbers now that you're seeing seeking shelter over the border of sudan from ethiopia's northern region of tigray so we have about fifty eight thousand at europeans. Which are actually entered into saddam at the moment the influx is between two to five hundred people daily coming across the border. They're coming in through to border areas Diet and lewke that number coming over two to five hundred a day. That's a lot less than it was but you suggesting that perhaps people are just too far away from the border to get to safety across the border now yes the first influx which resources came from the villages on the western side of tigray at the moment the people which we are seeing of people who have walked for some time what we see is that maybe we have an indication that the western side of being emptied and the people seeking shelter not come from further away. What are they telling you what are their needs. So i mean. Most of the people have Actually entered sudan without anything so they come with their clothes but many many few coming with no possessions at what we hear is that many come without documentation which is also something which we are trying to address the first influx came in relation to direct fighting the influx which we have now. The people are telling us that it's more in relation to the fact that they don't feel safe in tigray not so much because of the fighting because they are from the gray area. So do you have an idea. About what the level of fighting is in tigray today. What is your access you know we are working on the sudan side and our office in addis. Ababa is actually trying to gain access now. What we are doing is trying to relocate them. From the border areas further inland. We have two camps at the moment which are some distance from the border where border conflict should not be a problem. Okay but i'm just concerned that there's no access to hundreds of thousands potentially of people on the other side of the border of sudan with. He need essential food. Water and other services reported rising malnutrition from the office for the coordination of humanitarian affairs and they cited bureaucratic obstacles in in getting access to people who need it so. What's the latest you have on tensely getting help to these people in need as we are sitting here on the sudan side we are focusing on the influx which has come across the border from at the opium and we also have offices in the opium which are dealing with the people who have moved inside the tigray area but also inside at your more at large. So let's talk about two and a half months into this conflict. In the northern region of tigrayan ethiopia. You're trying to relocate tens of thousands potentially of refugees because you've got camps further inland in sudan. Could you may be explain what the difficulties are first of all. It's always a challenge to actually find. Land land something which is owned here by individuals but also by government and we have been working together with the government of sudan. We go a piece of land which is old campsite which is called ambre kuba what we have placed about twenty thousand refugees at the moment here. We have within. I would say short span in able to at least all stem in attempts but also ensure water health and food the second site which we have because kuba has been saturated is tenable. it's further way than kouba and it takes about twelve to fourteen sometimes. Sixteen hours to actually have the buses leaving the border area arriving at the campsite. Which therefore makes it arrivals in the middle of the night now. The campsite is located in a very remote area where we don't have any electricity and we are concerned that actually offloading these amounts of people in the middle of the night with no lights is something of a concern to us. We are trying to do this now. In such a way that we have larger area rub whole set up where we host people until we have the song light out again and then we give them the tents which have been set up for them. Sure and final. Question to you mr bishop. We are two and a half months into this conflict refugees telling you that. They are hopeful. Being able to return amid this fighting between two grants and the marines in the northern region of ethiopia. Refugees are still hopeful. But i think that what we see Is that people are here for longer term and why we have had some people expressing hopes to return they would like to return to the tigray. Which was there some three months ago not to the new situation which stay. I've heard the bald.
Deadly earthquake hits Indonesia
"This is. Un catch-up dateline. Geneva a weekly review of international news from the united nations. Thanks for listening to the show. I'm daniel johnson and over the next fifteen minutes also will be hearing about the week's top stories from yemen to peru to the hunt for the origins of covid nineteen plus. We'll be hearing about how the world food program is addressing hunger crisis in madagascar. This forced some people to eat mud and leaves to survive and as ever will be hearing from regular guests salon bell tailgate cutters and alfred yellow. That's all coming right up. But first to madagascar where the worst food crisis in decades continues to play out in the south of the country also known as the grand sued apart from a chronic lack of rain the indian ocean island is vulnerable to climate shocks like the massive thunderstorms that have shifted sand dunes. Burying what little people have managed to grow. The caveat crisis has made things even worse putting a halt to the occasional neighboring
After drought andfailedharvests, people of Madagascarreduced to eating mud
"Years of drought. In with what little the people of madagascar have managed to grow destroyed by flash flooding more than one point three million in crisis in some are even eating ground up clay just to survive movement restrictions relating to covid nineteen has also made it impossible for the poorest of the poor to find work to tide them over the lean season the world food program or p has warned in an interview with you and uses daniel johnson. Wfp's regional director for southern africa. Lola cash through explains the un agency his helping by empowering communities to withstand future climate shocks. The situation basically has been over the last five years with recurring droughts and only one good harvest and we have heard about it. Before in september we immediately had to come in and attend areas that we have never supported as well for program before because the crisis will saw huge. That success more tally. This is what we're talking about. How many people are you helping. And how many people are in need at this moment in the ground south of madagascar grants would gas in december. We supported five. Hundred thousand people almost half a million. We need to scale up to at least nine hundred thousand adults. They one point three million that are in dire need at this moment. Who are the most in need. The most need basically the poorest of the poor those people that in fact they have sometimes they produce small harvests but having been able to produce due to the lack of water. An incredible sunday's storms. That have hit this year. The harvest has been buried under sand. Basically if you want a picture and those ones also who migrate to cities to look for labor due to covid nineteen having been able to find any labor anywhere even in the fields or even in the city's so basically the situation is much worse than what we have seen in decades. Would we are talking now in the past. We've reported on the situation amount and recently we were hearing that people were forced to scavenge for cactus leaves cactus pears and eating leaves with some salt and some sugar. I mean this is just nowhere to live. Why can we not get in there immediately and do more to behind as we have been doing more we. The government will bank agencies. We having working on resilience bidding activities in a number of districts in the suit and we have been doing quite a lot building on irrigation trying to stop the dunes from moving sand occupies the fields the arable lands working with the communities. What we call foot for us activities. Let's say a conditional transfers that people get food or cash but they do something to improve the livelihoods and that has worked in the communities and this is where we have done most of this work. It has been bedtime this year. Let me yes report. But we are not doing enough. We have to also do much more. We have to help the people to get much more resilient in these very difficult climate change times where we know will never rain enough in south of madagascar so with much more. It's great to hear about the resilience building and certainly there seems to be more awareness that southern africa madagascar is at more risk of climate shocks. So is that how the humanitarian approach is changing is to promote resilience by getting the communities. Involved is what we call. If you want the nexus between humanitarian recovery and development with really need to move from year to year support of variable able to move them into more resilient as is to be able to feed themselves to be able to have water. If i'm eligible and to find water to be able to move their foods and have markets where they can buy if they receive social safety nets and social protection castro transfer. So that's the area where we all have agreed. This house in madagascar strategy long-term term strategies but not a gasket isn't poll everywhere it produces vanilla and lots of people are seeing that hollywood movie about madagascar and the wonderful wildlife and the natural riches that the country has so. Why isn't it doing more to help itself. It might sound a bit ruthless. But why isn't more being done in country to empower people to help themselves two days a lot being dining country but is not enough. Say in fact. It's very poor country if you look at. The human development index is very poor in general is true that samaria survey productive days rise by neela species etc. But it's not everybody who can benefit. The population is densely populated. It has also berry berry big promise. China change like it ocean lot of land goes to the days deforestation because of days. Nothing for the populations to eat. So tell
On EU's doorstep, UN raises alarm for thousands of young migrants sleeping rough
"Whatever. Two and a half thousand migrants and refugees have been forced to sleep rough in bosnia herzegovina for several weeks on the european union's doorstep despite the fact that suitable sheltered accommodation is available in an interview with you and uses daniel johnson. Peter our chief of mission in bosnia for the migration agency describes the of trying to find a quick solution to this urgent problem. You also explains why it's so important at all. Countries abide by their international commitments to helping vulnerable people in line with the global compact for safe or leeann regular migration adopted by majority of u n member states in december two thousand and eighteen years ago has been a transit country for migrants from greece trying to reach other parts of the european union. Since dan rea two thousand eighteen we've had a perennial problem of a lack of accommodation in bosnia herzegovina. Each window reface seamer thought john just but this year to challenge is actually larger because we have two thousand five hundred eight thousand five hundred refugees in bossier to gopinath sleeping in inhuman conditions. The reason for this is the ability of bosnian political system. If you want to decide where accusations should be because ironically or or cynically she won't. We actually do have sufficient spaces in two centers that we could open within twenty four hours but because a political resistance at the local level do locations. Dc's not happy so it's not a matter of the seasons. It's not a matter of money but it is a matter of political decision-making which obviously now he's ready urgent because the winter conditions are getting worse as we speak so you say that there's a problem of administrative procedure and there's also local opposition to housing the migrants. So that's a very difficult position for you to be in but as you say. The immediate problem is is really urgent. Because it's so cold and the camp that to the emergency count the leaper. Emergency tent camp burned down after being closed because it wasn't suitable for migrants didn't have electricity water. So what exactly is the un migration agency managing to do to help these people well. We're certainly pursuing a two track approach if you like the one we have increased our humanitarian assistance to people sleeping outside interest jackets winter. I sleeping bags sold packages we to get our partners. The danish refugee council and requested try to cover everyone while he's somehow reducing human suffering. Eat obesity does not provide an answer to the need for human accommodation while the other part of the work. We're trying to do trying to support the authorities at different levels to come together and to build a consensus as to where these new accusation could be. So these are the two efforts. But you're sort of stuck in as a un agency in the sense that while we have the resources it's not to or any other un agency to decide where my accusations should be that he's really up to the sovereign country in this case. Both here to go now to decide. I can just go to building erica. Dc sanal migrant accusations so. We're very much dependent on the local political process in while you can support while he can bringing ideas while driving people to get at the end of the day. You're dependent on local. Political decisions has the opposition to migration and migrants in bosnia. Been growing is it. I mean we're not talking about tens of thousands of people by any means are we know we're talking about today. In the county i would estimate about eight thousand five hundred. Marcus enrich In the country of three point five million inhabitants. That should not. I mean that he's not a a a large crisis by any stretch of the imagination There are two issues their first modern stint be located in two parts of the country canceling saudi avoid sonic canton and the frustration specifically again.

I mean, it's also true that like miles had things that never changed namely his tone when miles put his lips to his regard even after he didn't play for five years. It wasn't about hammacher miles had a voice on his truck that never changed about miles, even when it's attack was harder softer or whatever. He was cool. That was the whole. That's what he was young. He was he's iconic cool trumpet is that it, you know, and it doesn't mean of course that that train didn't didn't change. I mean he changed a lot. I mean when you hear him screaming through his saxophone, he sounds way different than he did. You know, one of my favorite things though about not changing and train is that every show he played for about thirty years. He always, His favorite things and my favorite things is such a funny song because it's a freaking cheesy showtune. Like it wasn't his composition. He was his arrangement of literally a show tune off, but but but but but you know with a swing to it and stuff, but to me that was so cool because like he was basically playing like Disney music with a swing on it off and just loving the shit out of it and playing it every single night and to me like that was so that that to me was a wake-up call because it was like, wow he gave himself to that song without pretension, you know on the surface. There's nothing really that it's like the opposite of cool and some cents that's like miles was cool and and train was not right and I think like for a long time I thought I wanted to be like the cool Catholic and the cool scholar and you know, maybe the cool guitar player without an edge, but that's hard to do. But anyway now I'm like, I'm not in the cool anymore, I guess, you know. That's actually really funny. It just said wait a minute.

We may want to be who we are and kind of thing and you know, I get that the Beats I think I think this distinguishes the Beat Generation from the hippie generation, right? Like Ginsberg wasn't cool. Dylan was cool off and and and and I have a real affection, especially now for like the beats and for the new sincerity Daniel Johnson, you know, I don't know if you know of him off guitar, he just passed away recently. He's got that song True Love Will Find you in the end that's not covered by a bunch of people. Yeah. Oh, yes. Yes. I wasn't very familiar until dead. Remember when he passed everyone was talking about it. But yeah, I'm about to do an EP of covers actually in part because of this whole thing with train that I'm obsessed with.

How the COVID-19 shock could bring us cleaner, safer, more sustainable cities
"This is Matt Wells, the news once the COVID. Nineteen pandemic behind this wind occasions are that cities are going to be greener cleaner, quieter safer and more secure. That's the strong belief of iconic international architect Norman Foster who's been sharing this sustainable view with mayors from dozens of cities, a U N Economic Commission for Europe Event in Geneva. In a wide-ranging interview with you and uses Daniel Johnson Lord. Foster begins by discussing how cities of emerge stronger from disaster in the past and how they will like look in the future. Historically cities have been through crises and in the long arc of history, there's crises have improved the quality of life of the city's effectively transformed them. So the question about the covid nineteen is that going to see cities change a flight from the city I would suggest that it has magnified accelerated trends which were already apparent among can go through those trends there about mobility either about working patterns there about the role of industry and culture in the city, and really if you develop this theme and You apply the lessons of history. Then all the indications are that the city is going to be greener cleaner, quieter, safer more secure, but it does need some rethinking. The thing that is new is the attitude as a result of the pandemic having seen. Some of the spontaneous things that have happened pedestrianisation is not new for example, but normally, it would take years to achieve that we're seeing that happen overnight in cities. We're seeing street widening in Soho London entire roads given over to terraces to strolling so. In a way, the dense European city which is by Qabail. walkable. Alternately more sustainable than cities that
Can Simple Fruit Peels Revive Dead Land?
"Of IHEART. Pay Brain Stuff Lauren Boban here with another classic episode from Erstwhile Host Christian Sager. This one has to do with some awesome environmental research almost never came to light. I'll let Christian explain. Stuff, it's Christian Sagar. If some of Earth's most barren wastelands could be transformed into dense productive forests by the most unlikely of helpers discarded fruit peels. It sounds like wishful thinking but that's exactly what happened in the nineteen nineties during promising ecological experiment orange juice manufacturer del Oro plunked twelve thousand metric tonnes. It's around thirteen thousand, two, hundred, twenty, eight tonnes of orange peels on top of bleak Costa Rican Pastureland eventually transforming it into a lush fertile forest but it's a success story that almost wasn't told del Oro donated a seven Acre or three. Hector plot on the edge of the WANNA cast t conservation area after being approached by University of Pennsylvania researchers, Daniel Johnson and Winnie. Hell walks who wondered how the company's discarded appeals could benefit the soil in one, thousand, nine, hundred, Ninety, eight, the company deposited one thousand truckloads of orange skins onto the degraded land as part of the agreement but rival Orange Squeezer tico fruit sued del Oro a year into the contract claiming the company was defiling National Park Costa Rica's Supreme Court agreed, and after only two years, the experiment came to a halt. That could have been the end of the story. Were it not for Timothy Truer a curious ecologist at Princeton University in two thousand, thirteen truer and a team of researchers traveled to Costa Rica for unrelated research and decided to look up the orange peel plot. The site sign was so covered with vines in the land. So densely filled with trees that took the team years and dozens of site visits to discover it the team sampled and studied the soil at the site and compared it to samples that were taken in the year two thousand. It also noted tree diameter and species from the Orange Peel site and that of. In Year by pasture that wasn't treated with peels, the researchers found that the treated area had richer soil more tree biomass and a broader variety of tree species including a fig tree with a circumference equivalent to three arm spans. The precise reasons for this one, hundred and seventy six percent increase in above ground biomass are still being investigated but the researchers contend dumping massive amounts of nutrient. Rich organic waste had a nearly immediate effect on the land's fertility changing its lifeless soil into a thick rich loamy mixture. The researchers proposed it's also probable that the orange peel suppressed growth of an invasive grass that was keeping the forest from flourishing. The rediscovery of the experiment, a boon for barren landscapes and agricultural waste, but it also could have a major impact on earth. If more companies institute similar, environmentally friendly solutions to waste the resulting richly vegetated land could help isolate harmful carbon dioxide in the air and improve Earth's polluted atmosphere.

"I'm like when you decide to be like normal you call me and I didn't talk to him for probably. Oh my God by six or seven years after that. I was just so taken aback by what happened to this guy and I didn't really know a whole lot of the backstory, right? So five or six years later, he still doing the drugs dead ends up stealing a bunch of stuff from the Armory him at a bunch of guys and spends quite a bit of time in the brig plus time served. So ended up getting out and he's doing well for himself. Now. But once he got out like I actually I talked to him. I'm like, dude. Why were you doing that in your barracks room? That that day like right what led you to that point which then snowballed into you stealing ship from the Armory and Lounge your ass up in the brig and he says well on one of my initial deployments Iraq, I got injured and it wasn't combat-related. They made them stay out there. And while he was in Iraq, they were giving him Thirty milligrams of Oxycodone. So for those of them who oh my God, so here's the thing. So for those out there who don't understand how much that really is. I had back surgery where they put screws and putting them in my L4 and L5 in my back and they his anus they went through his anus. Yes, that's why it's wider now that I only got five milligrams per serving groups or whatever. It's called Austin Oxys full axi full access to 4 if I take it's like a 7 and 1/2 percocet or oxy I am Feeding me with a rubber fucking spoon making airplane noises bro, bro, these yeah these fines I was taking what's what's your husband's name? Tony Johnny I said, oh that's funny. He's nice. She is so, you know, they were given thirties in Iraq in wage what in country Rome in country. They were given in that stuff. Right and they were like to make you feel better. So he gets home and at this point now he's like addicted to it because I'm taking like the 30 milligram at like the only time like once a day basically telling him like when you're done for the day like you take this and lay down and it'll help you sleep and relax and whatever whatever he's free up off but your bowel movements, right? Exactly. And so that shouldn't bugs me up tighter in a fucking drum bro. He went through I think he was he did it like a I think he did a 13 month or an eleventh month deployment was wrong with the Marine Corps was doing the longer ones like everybody else. Well know you guys are still doing fifteen months. I think the longest we were doing I think was only thirteen but you had to do like a 20 Jun. A stay-at-home. So you weren't getting like the one year away from home like bonus or whatever. That was they were doing anyway, anyway, yeah. Yeah. Yeah, so he comes home addicted to this shit. So he keeps saying he keeps painting the same injury, but what they're doing is they start to realize that they've started a problem now with just him with everybody else that's coming back from that Iraq. And then right yeah on realizing their mistake and now these are lowering the dosage to try wean him off. So, I don't know what dose he was at that point when I saw him when he was earning it, but that's what he started doing because they because they were reducing it so much he was having to smash it and cut it up and snort it to get the same effect and that led him to still feeling things to sell them to buy, you know and get the cash and buy it. I'm like, holy fuc. And so since then like, you know, I've had a real problem like being issued any wage Pills unless it's fucking Motrin and like new socks. I don't want to take it like you better back-up. I don't want none of that shit gets crazy, right? You can bananas cause I guess that's what's happened to know what the like the whole world of America is that it's so easier to give like that's or anybody particularly. Here's some medicine be quiet. But at the end of the day off is what I've learned through like the therapy that I've been in and everything is that that's only weekend is better. Yeah, we just better that's what I turned. Well, it's a it's a Band-Aid. We're not we're not addressing what are really problem is in the truth doesn't matter for me. What is it didn't matter how much medication you gave me? I still felt like shit. I still still wanted to shoot you in the face and and I was very irritable and until I got out started talking to somebody who could relate to me off which was actually for me. It was other veterans that I had served with right like that's when I started to feel a little better. That's when I kind of felt like I could forgive myself for some of the things that you know, we're put in in their life. Service to do and like you know, think about it. Well, why did you do that? I have a choice like you don't really have a choice in Iraq, you know, especially in a position where you don't have it the choice you can choose wage you're going to die that day or somebody else is going to die. Exactly and then you got home and face the music and face the guilt paste everything else and like I said for me medication wasn't working cuz I was like, I was just numb to the pain but I still felt it off like I said getting out and talking to somebody and you know, you know finding these organizations that you know, wanted to help veterans to get around other veterans and then for me racing was it man it was like I couldn't walk. I didn't matter what medicine you gave me. Nothing got me as high going racing nothing. So here's the thing. Like when when you got out though, they should have there should be should have Woulda Coulda right and maybe maybe there at some point this will come out but there needs to be some kind of psych eval as you're exiting like when you're doing when you're like twelve months out at some point when you're doing your exit interviews and whatnot. There should be like some kind of psych eval or like what time?.

And you know, we're trying to like for me like I'm going to talk myself like I thought isolated in my race car shop getting fucked up on on, you know Adderall. Drinking beer was cool. Right and sooner or later. I kind of got to this point where it's only cool for a season and but I'm still having my problems, you know, so it was like I had reach out and talk to somebody so like for me I actually talked to one of my guys in my unit who was kind of going through a lot the same thing, but I was going through but you know, he was on the rebound that he was in school. He's working on a degree if we call him big Dan and you know, we gotta talk in and he's like break. He said just talked to somebody and he goes get an accountability partner and I don't know just thought it like, you know, very small like once a week. I talked a big day and I told him what I was going through and all of a sudden he's like, well you need to get the VA need to get seen and for you know, what I ended up like, you know, cuz I New Orleans it's so overpacked they couldn't see me so they had to Outsource it to the to the civilian side, right? Yeah, and that's the thing right now man, because there's such an influx of us ETS saying or doing whatever the fuck you guys call it the VA understands that they are so dead. Understaffed and underfunded that they if you cannot be seen in thirty days, they have to put you out on the economy on the va's dime well and not just that like if you're not getting along with the VA doctor that said cuz that was my problem in Slidell. I was seeing the VA shrink over there and you know, she kept telling me like just ship it. I didn't want to hear and she was very rude and didn't really have I guess what you call in the medical world wage side manner, you know, I just straight-up called and said I don't want to talk this girl anymore. I want to talk somebody else and they actually just simple question. Who do you want to talk to? So what are you talking about? She goes, do you know somebody in a civilian ROM you can talk to them and we'll pay them. I was like what so I mean I see a psychiatrist that's a civilian who I picked and the VA covers the whole bill. And whole thing about her was she was at this big pharmaceutical person like she told me straight up. She was like man, he's got you on too many medications cuz let's pull you off of this and let's get you exercise and suck. You gotta feel better. Watch God damned. If she went telling the truth have fuck all that exercise shit man. I'd rather just take some pills. Each is your own right? I'm fuking with you off, but you would you would you go to JJ's important Point made though Daniel is that look if the VA is only got one Doc and you don't mess with that doc have the right like anywhere else. You still have the right to say, I need a different provider. I had to do that now and to find a provider that says let's get you off these meds unless you exercise and eating right that's fucking step in the right direction too because we all know soon as you walk through those VA doors those motherfukers just have those drugs loaded in a cannon man. They they hand you a fucking bag and you just catch You can catch and see your ass out the back door. So that's all the va's good for and you know, it was so early back when we pause that it's not just a VA. It starts with the mission that people receive off. Yeah, you know and I can do T. And here's a perfect point. I'm not going to name names right? But this is a very friend of mine that I went to high school with he joined the Marine Corps year after me young guy like a brother super good dude.

But anyway, so Pennsylvania catalog So I'm up in Pennsylvania.

I worked through it, right but that wasn't that's right. Really the right way. I should have said something I should have talked to somebody medicated whatever you want to you choose to do right? Well, so it had a reoccurrence after I had back surgery. I'm like stuck on the couch. I'm like, I suddenly I'm a stay-at-home dad. Like I'm like, I can't handle this.

That's I think he was sympathizing with he was sympathizing with you while verbally assaulted him. Listen anyway, so one of my really good friends came in town as he was pcsing to Germany. Fornia, I thought it was brilliant and I love you. Anyway, I said you're welcome. And and I was telling him all this and he was like bro. I have the same problems and I finally went and talked to somebody and I got on you know this medication and it's made everything different and I'm like, yeah, but I don't want to be medicated. Like I don't want to I be that that guy right off I can tell you since I finally started to say something I finally made appointments. I finally want to talk to somebody and they're like, hey, you should probably try this this same medicine that my friend is on you should at least give it a try like just give that a try and I'm like man, I don't like I don't want to do that. And I said you you should just do it, right so I did it. I honestly God by the the second day. I already felt like a different person and it's been like week.

Oh my gosh, that's terrible. Honestly. That's what I would say it again that Brian wants you to say. Oh my gosh again. There's less passion that time. Yeah, there was there wasn't enough passion the second time in his genuine of she sounded like that girl on Baby Got Back. Oh my god Becky look up but it's like one of those rap guys girlfriends or something. There should be on your picture. There's a great amount of but they're off now that we're back from break and all you non car guys had your favorite part of the show just now. We are sitting with Daniel Johnson who I assume bro, and you're talking like the unlimited modified whatever about ask. Are you talking dirt track? Right? This is correct bad ass. So you're around driver if people were just if people were just joining us or former host whose internet was fukkard up today. What kind of car are you running? What's what give me the quick the cliff notes on power plant transmission stuff like that. Give us the run. So so the car that I bought Currently drive right now is a 2017 and was racing performance chassis limited modified it is it starts off Life as a Chevrolet Monte Carlo they cut them up and moved the motor back. They put up a sheet metal body on them are engine that we're allowed to run is you can run Chevrolet or Ford we run a Chevrolet. Oh, yeah, and it's I think the motor that we had in the car right now. 360 cubic inches. It is in fact up by power glad to speed and you erase it and first gear to get the gear ratio that you're looking for in a back on the current track that were racing at is Pike County Speedway out of Magnolia Mississippi where we're pulling about a 588 final drive gear and we run a little over hundred miles an hour and it's wide open on the mat turn left right next door to somebody and hope you don't run them over and kind of re-running. It's got a GM 10 bolt with the Ford. With the 49-inch ends on it reason being is that is the four axle shafts. That's what the that's what class allows you to run to help keep them a little bit more affordable. But but it's still like it's a twenty three hundred fifty pound car with a driver sitting in it and it makes about 400 415 horsepower with the spec motor that we run off and it just it hauls ass. It's like I say a little over a hundred miles an hour on a 3/8 mile track and you're on dirt. So it's like you don't answer that fax. Okay. Well, you can try it, you know, and I'm so it's pretty badass dude. You're running cool. It's a 2-speed Powerglide, but you never come out of first gear. No, you do not because of the way that you're trying to get the ratio to work out and your final drive. Um, okay. Like I said, it's just not a little over a hundred. It's all revs dude. It's it's momentum like these cars are known for momentum racing and It's just it's a lot of throttle control break control just driver control. It's a chess game. I call it a race car. Sure. So that's that's what we do on Saturday night. We do a little bit of what a Ford Mustang with a Chevrolet motor in it, but that's not really tell me what it is and you're making a lot tell me what is a let's hear that so we got our ninety-two Fox back. Her name is foxtrot. We named it, you know foxtrot seeing from the Marine Corps, you know, it is many table that is on a 2028 10 and 1/2 inch wheel. Let's see. It's got a 408 cubic inch less in it but a 78 millimeter model on it. Is that a Powerglide in it? I don't really throw the times out there because we do a little bit of Grudge racing with it, but it doesn't hold stuff. Okay, so you're telling me that you've got a Foxbody with an LS and you just openly admitted that to all 7 of our listeners, correct? I like you brown. I don't even know you LS swap the world fuk it off. They're at least five of those guys are going to come after you don't care. It's badass dude. That's that's my little streetcar that I ride around and I bring my kids at school in and out. It's about 1400 horsepower. So so really it can be but I leave it in the shop, but I got a really cool story behind this car. I always wanted one. I found it off and the guys like I can't find the title, but I'm going to send it to you said okay cool. It shows me the title. It's got a California title on it the top right of the title. It says vehicle history prior police on the title page Charles. Like what I got a I got a car used to chase hookers and strippers and now, you know now you're chasing hookers and strippers with it. I don't chase hookers and strippers. I.

So what you're saying is you're coming in as a rechargeable. Help me feel very scats. There we go here telling me is a Saturday you're coming over to help me finish this car. That's why I'm a going racing. So sorry. So Sunday Sundays are reserved for the Lord and that's it. Bro for the Lord and Nascar race, right? I don't I don't know bro. I want to make sure screw loose stays pretty a political, but I think they're going to be I don't think I don't think Major League Sports regardless of what their job. Is going to be very popular this year. I don't disagree. Well, here's my thing right now. And I'm what they call a real Grassroots racer. I don't have any responses I pay for it on my cell phone. So I don't like for us to go racing and us the to tell the wall down and tear a car up. It takes us four or five months to get back out there. Exactly. So not only money a lot of time and if you don't hurt yourself, you know, so with that being said with with NASCAR doing what they're doing their NASCAR was never meant to be a political sport. It was supposed to be an outlaw sport. They came in shine and running moonshine from the police, right? Yeah absolutely doing cool stuff. Now now we're you know making a political about profit about all the other stuff. I'm not watching that man. Like I'm here to watch racing. I want to suck erase. I want to see side-by-side racing. I want to see you ran me over. I'm going to punch you in the face now, you know, and you don't see that one NASCAR anymore. You know now the last good fight that I saw on nascar.com. Want the probably the best fight was the Bobby Allison fight too many dudes with shampoo sponsorships for your Tide Pods. It's just get in a fight. Hey Tara Lee bonny. And what's his name had the closest finish in NASCAR history in the tide car. So you shut your mouth. Yeah, your Google and stuff. No motherfuker. I know I missed your fucking Wikipedia here so much now I'll tell you something really cool on Friday nights and Hattiesburg, Louisiana. They have a little small racetrack dirt kart track that Tony Stewart actually comes about four or five times a year and he raises his Sprint car there at the end of night. He signed autograph. He talks all the kids and that often. Is this the same dude though that killed the guy. Yes. Yeah. Okay. So let me give you let me give the the backstory behind that first. The kid was high as a kite, you know when they did the autopsy. Solid reports he was hot. So actively what are you doing in a race car that goes a hundred and sixty miles an hour in your hot second. Okay. We'll listen. Hold on. Let me page to defend that point cuz if you did an autopsy on me right now, I'd look high as fuck. Why because we're a legal weed State bog off. That was before all that was legal though. Yeah, don't matter I probably have been high then to write. Well, so check this out. So like, you know, every race you go to have a drivers meeting right and and I go over to the safety goals every week. They say this exact words do not get out of your car unless your car is on fire or we tell you to because you will get run over on this race track. So if your girl is on fire, are we to get the car you stay your ass in the car and they say it's every week. So, you know, I think about that and I'm like first off this kids car wasn't on fire. He was mad, you know throw his comment and all of a sudden you get right over and then you know, Tony felt really bad about that, you know, if watched a video he was crying about it all that so like well, yeah, he killed a guy. That's right. I kind of felt bad about how like, I mean, I think it was like manslaughter at the least rightly something dude red guys, almost like some probation or something, you know, like publicly them come out and say listen just he's going to be picking up cans on I-40 for a while just to kind of pay as Penance. How's that? Yeah. He said he was sorry. But the thing of it is is like you go back to we just talk about do not get out of bed. Don't get out of your car you doing all the race, That's that's like famous don't want to talk about lemons. Like don't get these are a bunch of pupies that go 5 mile an hour. Don't get out of the motherfuking, bro. I did like 89 in your hooptie. Uska .9 get out. So check this out. I'm going to give you some insight on safety equipment. We have to wear this. Yep.

I was stationed to the only Battalion the Marine Corps Source Italians second Marines Charlie Company and where I got the privilege we saw get it, right? Yeah. So so I got the privilege to combat tours in Iraq with these guys and we were the very first troops to cross over into the Iraqi border Jessica Lynch is a fake and all that was a fake and a set up for the media. It's a a good simple why we whooped everybody's ass, so we'll just lay that groundwork out right there. And what did she near me? She was in the Army and making sure she was no problem. Yeah, so so basically we got that other fucker to we got a couple fuckers miss your fucking song Berg Berg and so was that hold on dude. I got to address the transvestite in the room to oh, wow. Don't we don't we have that that other dude got this exchanged what Chelsea Manning? Oh, yeah. She got this when you asshole yet. We just did Jessica Lynch Bowe Bergdahl. And what's a man?

Some had they arrest may they rest in peace rather. Amen. Amen. Now, I don't know how I escaped without a scratch, but I did and I live to fight another day. And that was my that was my first or eighteen years old. I was a lance corporal and I wasn't really even out of boot camp in a really full year yet. So, you know, that's how fast things happened as far as me and in the Marine Corps and you know, obviously they showing that the Heading Video. In fact when you were there they were not. All right. Let's just curious when you join what your what year did you join? I I joined in June of two thousand and one I had signed off. My enlistment papers I was seventeen years old my mom and my dad had to sign me up because I was under eighteen and I was cutting grass for a friend of mine waiting to go to bootcamp of March of or two with what I was originally scheduled to go to boot camp. Well when nine eleven happened, obviously, they fast-forwarded everything and I was actually working for a family friend cutting grass and I simply called my recruiter I said, hey man, what's up, he goes back and shit. I was like, okay and so December of 01 was at Parris Island South Carolina, the only place they trained real Marines and that was the end of it.

World isn't meeting biodiversity goals, UN report finds
"The number of plants and animals on the planet that are at risk today would be far higher without globally agreed safeguards in action to protect him but it still far from good enough UN by diversity exports sat on Tuesday in call for far greater commitment from only Chicago to safeguard human wellbeing in the planet's the body that oversees these work. The Convention on biodiversity urged those gathering for UN summit at the end of the. Month to broaden their ambition from the convention. Here's Executive Secretary Elizabeth Marina Deputy Executive Secretary David Cooper talking to UN uses Daniel Johnson just if you wouldn't mind Elizabeth Merima give me the classification of diversity and in particular why is it important in simple words by devastate is everything around us and when I say everything around us, it means everything we do as human activities affected by busy. Each could be what we do on the land what we're doing. What we do in the forest, what we do on species, animals, plants, I mean, what we do is we produce our food as we consume all by diversities. So our human actions in the nature of virus around us and what we're finding is that if fact but diversity is in massive trouble and your report from the conventional biological diversity, the UN Conventional Biological Diversity tells us that only six out of the world's twenty goals on biodiversity have. been achieved only partially achieved by the deadline, which is actually this year. So to be honest I wasn't aware that the governments of the world had agreed in Japan twenty ten to a series of biodiversity targets and you're saying that only six of twenty goals of being partially achieved by the two thousand twenty deadline. So what is the concern? Which of these? Obviously a very bad report card where have we gone wrong and please don't say everywhere. No because they some progress. But indeed unfortunately by diversity's declining it unprecedented level rate and precious deriving they decline unfortunately. So increasing just as underlying. So indeed this scorecard, his only identify six of the twenties so not even half in the seats. In the areas of deforestation, where at least deforestation is gone down by Fed or two percent fisheries. Management fisheries catches also improved clearly indicating where appropriate policies on fisheries management have been put in place. Then the fishery cage hazing and abundance is increased and improved education of alien species. Particularly from the islands Z. Qualley improved protected areas has increased from ten percent to fifteen percent in terrestrial in three to seven percents on marine areas we also learned my says extinction fishes extension at really threatened in the history of mankind still where conservation measures they've been put in place every improved and reduce extinction of species without which. We and be waste than what we are talking today I think joining us now we are very fortunate have Mr David Cooper. Deputy Executive Secretary of the UN. Conventional. Biological, diversity. Welcome to you Mr Cooper. Thank you very much. Daniel. Thank you ever so much for joining us. We were just talking there with Elizabeth, my executive secretary on the really mixed report card. I. Think that's the charitable worth putting it off. The biodiversity targets that was back in two, thousand ten. So a decade on. We've got six of twenty goals partially achieved although Elizabeth was saying that the has been some good work on eliminating foreign species from islands and in the fisheries to and other national programs that perhaps you could tell me a bit more about to give us maybe a little bit of positive news. What is a pretty Hesse mystic outlook for humankind and also forbade diversity moving forward? Yes. Thank you very much indeed even in those targets that haven't been pasta passages talks that haven't been achieved. Is. Some signs the progress as as in his methods as as mentioned in which Houston deforestation rates in fooding fisheries management in dealing with invasive alien species and in reducing. Rate. So numbers of bird mammal extinctions that occurred over the past ten years or indeed over the life of the Convention would bean at least to perhaps up to four times higher without the actions of being taken. So one clear message despite the disappointing results one clear message is policies do work if they are put in place and implemented, and so we need to learn from that we. Need to be encouraged by that, we need to step up those policies more widely in order to reduce the greater biodiversity loss. The report also shows that if he wants to actually not only we do survey to biodiversity loss that Ben that curve and put me on a path to recovery than more fundamental actions also needed looking at the way we produce and consume food in particular that. Sustainable production and consumption captains more broadly as well. I'm just going to dive in that because the report is pretty alarming and I'm very glad to hear about some of these national projects that have been successful in. Boosting bio-diversity, but the report says that the rate of biodiversity loss is unprecedented in human history I guess we did know that really and precious intensifying and living as a whole being compromised, and of course, we can't have this discussion without talking about covert and how the degradation of our natural environment has I suppose, but closer into contact with viruses in the natural world, is that the kind of thing that's really going to galvanize support for greater support for native greater protection for nature if we don't do so we're going to be huge trouble ourselves forms. Suddenly I I. Hope. So there's Very clear evidence as you say that the degradation of of ecosystems encroachment into international areas, unregulated wildlife trade, these things. Increase the risk of emergence of future. Disease increase the risk of future pandemics, and conversely, if we can invest in conservation an investigation regulating control wildlife trade, we will reduce those risks. So these are suddenly Lead important reasons on top of wanting to prevent six-man south extinction. These really positive reasons also for investing in IDA versity.

Mixed report card forprotecting natural biodiversity can be turned round, say experts
"The number of plants and animals on the planet that are at risk today would be far higher without globally agreed safeguards in action to protect him but it still far from good enough UN by diversity exports sat on Tuesday in call for far greater commitment from only Chicago to safeguard human wellbeing in the planet's the body that oversees these work. The Convention on biodiversity urged those gathering for UN summit at the end of the. Month to broaden their ambition from the convention. Here's Executive Secretary Elizabeth Marina Deputy Executive Secretary David Cooper talking to UN uses Daniel Johnson just if you wouldn't mind Elizabeth Merima give me the classification of diversity and in particular why is it important in simple words by devastate is everything around us and when I say everything around us, it means everything we do as human activities affected by busy. Each could be what we do on the land what we're doing. What we do in the forest, what we do on species, animals, plants, I mean, what we do is we produce our food as we consume all by diversities. So our human actions in the nature of virus around us and what we're finding is that if fact but diversity is in massive trouble and your report from the conventional biological diversity, the UN Conventional Biological Diversity tells us that only six out of the world's twenty goals on biodiversity have. been achieved only partially achieved by the deadline, which is actually this year. So to be honest I wasn't aware that the governments of the world had agreed in Japan twenty ten to a series of biodiversity targets and you're saying that only six of twenty goals of being partially achieved by the two thousand twenty deadline. So what is the concern? Which of these? Obviously a very bad report card where have we gone wrong and please don't say everywhere. No because they some progress.

"Would you know what first of all first and foremost I love New York? I one of my favorite places in the world and I'm pretty obsessive and what happened was I remember. I swear. Made that film in Two Thousand Fifteen The the time before when I've been I've been there in two thousand and two thousand nine and what happened has been to New York. I'd spent like a month down and I run around. Make all these friends and connections and and I just felt like oh I had. This had this whole of life in New York and I didn't get to go there for a few years money and whatnot and then I went back in two thousand thirteen in my head. Thinking of all these friends are gonNA catch a wave and this and that and down them would make excuses. Didn't have that much time for me. I'm why realized was because why I'd come out with my life and spent a short amount of time in New York these characters these people that I met had taken them big importance to me. They were like this amazing group of people admit in New York so that was a special occasion but for their in their lives. They live in New York. They're going about their lives day today and I'm just the English guy that they happen to know for a few weeks. Do you know what I mean. It wasn't it wasn't the same thing for them and basically in New York in two thousand thirteen. I this realization of like this. I felt so deeply and so strongly. Wasn't there anymore and at the same time. There are some cafes coffee places and restaurants. I loved the inferior for years. Had closed down there. Were there any more so I was struck by the feeling of this. They so rarely my head about New York and the people is not actually there anymore and that feeling is so strong in me that I was on the subway heading bats where I was staying and it just sort of came. I remember getting my phone having to all the dialogue. You hear the voice over. I just wrote my came to me. Like instantly like artistically. It was expressed rather than being about friendship and about buildings and restaurants. It came out as a go. Do you know what I mean about. Love stories more pain on screen. So it's just as idea of of what you think is real but realistically it's No you know And that's what it was about and then so I I literally wrote it. Probably in about ten minutes and then the the guy did the voiceover. I already knew he was one of the guys and kept in touch him from a few years before I sort of said to me. You've got do the voice over for this thing The of Iraq the actress. Who's the main actor in it? She I coincidentally admit a week or two before for coffee for a mutual friend and she just seemed perfect for APP and so I just did up she is. She was perfect She is absolutely beautiful but she also has a captivating you know a presence about her and and severely in the filmed. You know you could actually if you don't get caught up in emotionally. You could see the film making was in the editing. Because of all the way different scenes and matching her expressions in her looks yet. The narration was just a really beautiful blend of storytelling. Yeah and the other thing is well like I wanted to make film. That feels like what my memories in. Mike. Because I don't always have the best memory me what Bruce played a Gig five years ago. I might not remember by remind remember. There was someone standing next to me who cried. Remind remember the on the stage this happened and snapshots of feelings a moment and that's what my memories likes to make film. The juice captured that feeling so the had to try and through like a memory. And I do think that's. It worked at least from my perspective. You know that's exactly what it felt like it Felton. Like almost you were you. Were seeing inside the narrators head. He's talking about this and seeing her and I love ending where it's the The long shot. And he at Hawking in all of a sudden you know she sees she looks in the camera and realizes it's him and the smile and it just is is very sweet and in in embiid use a good not in the way that the lady and the Tiger when I was in junior high reading that short-story and irritated me. I WanNa know and ending but this was a good way. Kana as Casa Blanca Rights is at the beginning of a beautiful friendship. This you you can. If you're a romantic you can say maybe they rekindled something and made something beautiful or maybe they just got a good ending where they continue on their lives but now then she's gone from a unhappy memory to a pleasant memory in his. Yeah here's the thing. I feel like a bit like the experience about personally with me to New York. Is that like I for that character? She it's him that missed her. It was his Bronx Shit. You know what I mean. Excuse me maybe she doesn't. It's just as likely they could bump into Java. It could be awkward than she wants to leave. There's all they could fall in love and it's not just ambiguous is in. I'M GONNA end here and guess what happens is ambiguous in. I've got no idea I've no idea none of us know what would happen. Bract you know what I mean. Because his life who knows? And that's just really beautiful. Well almost on the other side of romance is Marian Dave. Yes so east St Marian David. I got the name right. That's right okay so I had seen this posted on social media. I watched it and I have mmediately reached out to Daniel and said Oh you please be on my podcast that I was like. There's no way he's too busy and and I was so pleased when you came back I will let you give a summary of what you your vision of what this Web Soad's shows web series is about for me. It's a web series about the people you see in the definitely in the pit or they're down the front row. It's about people that are so passionate about something that they get blinded to everything else you know when. I talk to friends about the things I'm passionate about like Bruce that it gets to the point that I use quite nice and they but then when they realize it's more than that and he's like no no no. I'm flying to Rome to same to Zurich. Suddenly they're like. Why did you maintenance that thing and I think anyone who has any passion? There's like the normal socially acceptable version of the passion. And then it's what happens when you did when you go. You just go. Further down the whole And so just so happens that I wanted to make a series about not just about passionate about Bruce but you know what the effects of that and what happens if two people in a relationship both love Bruce and they both happened to be competitive. Or what happens if it's like when two for you now. You must have seen it when people are talking about an album. One of them doesn't know what songs the next track list and the other one feels so eilly slightly more knowledgeable generating smugness. Yeah which at time. Thing again bruce fans but sometimes you do like anything. Yes so I just wanted to take all of that stuff the I just find very funny. I remember what just a quick memory once I was as bruce in Hyde Park in two thousand twelve my friend Mandy and my Bravo's as well and my bra connor how he come up with this joke but my brother was making a joke. A pretending doesn't know bruce as well as he does so he'd like she's born in the USA guy kept in front of everyone is thousands of people improper slice is that is that been to the USA song and some of the looks around us from fans were like they don't even know like yes. That's funny Roberson. A few months it was just this really funny thing that he would do. And it's just that it's just that sense of humor of like when you take it so seriously like I could easily Bruce Fan have a debate about what is the best version of united. Thunder Ido. Something is crazy if you if you step outside like if you saw show like greasy lake the form if you showed the the conversation to any of a person you know like the way you converge online to look set list live we just see so names typed one after the other from a show. That's happening in Australia. That's insane. It's insane as well and you know what I was. Lucky enough to go My wife was very supportive last year. Of My Bruce Obsession in my son. I went to see the August twenty fifth show in Jersey so it was the middle show. Yeah and amazing. It was the first time ever at the end of a show. I was sated always before I was greedy and I'd Go God one more. Can you get one more and in this one it was almost it was close to four hours and I was like you know if he plays another one. I'm okay but if he does I I don't need another one right. Yeah Yeah and there was all this debate on you know. Did it break four hours? Not and and I found the the MINUTIAE discussion of like it's stuffed. It started roughly at eight. It ended roughly midnight. It's a four hour show and but the whole well do you start the clock when the first band member comes onstage. He start the clock. When Bruce comes on stage you start the when he says. Good evening to you in the clock and I did hear from someone later. That part of this is because early shows in the seventies. You don't have any video so you start the clock when you hear his voice but I was like. That's a little. Yeah I personal opinion. Only a little too MANUSHA and a little too mice. I've talked about. I Love Comic Books and I'm in and I you know In every once in a while my son and my son and wife ago too much he oh that's their version of going. Okay you you've now come become charming obsessed to. I'm a little worried about you. Yeah exactly and Marian Dave or little too much and Jorg that hasn't been explored yet. Is they've got a daughter who really is like. She's like the thing on their mind. She comes in at number twelve another number. One is Bruce springsteen materials who's the bigger Bruce springsteen fan number three is just burst Bruce Grace and eventually they're like. Oh Yeah we have a kid. Probably we should probably take care of her. Which by the way in the second episode. We meet her. We meet her current boyfriend. Who seems the nicest guy ever right? And and she's the daughter is very healthy and seems to be well adjusted but yes it is the very last thing and a a long time ago We were talking to a lady who had done the Ironman triathlon and she talked about her ex husband was a ironman competitor as well and she says it doesn't work well in a family if both of you are competing at that level You need someone when your dog tired after training to cook the dinner your wash the clothes and the funny thing is well like they're not It's not like they've got a higher goal. It's not like they're going to be the best musicians ever ah politicians right therefore the DUDA. I case she'll be a bit messed up. But there's a big goal where served the community and she'll grow up to have an important role. None these are just two. Bruce springsteen fans who like is no. Yeah and I talked a lot about. I believe there is a beauty to this modern world social media that you can become friends and feel a connection like when I see you on twitter going forward. I will smile and if I see you talking about his show I'll go good. It's my friend Daniel. I will call you my friend because we've connected. We have Bruce Together. You've been on the podcast so I think there's a beauty to that and we joke every once in a while and there's this one percent that when you meet live you go. I don't know if I particularly enjoy your company and Marian. Dave are a little bit of the like the first episode really talks about them. The argument of which ones have bigger fan and and Mary is a little more competitive but not by much and then the second episode is instead of just admitting we didn't get tickets they got this elaborate plan of pretending they're at the show because it is important and I'm using air quotes that they post the set list. Well here's the thing. Just quickly I. I was at the show the show European toll and I I come in with the first one was nothing preview night but I remember like wanting to be the first one to post. That seemed really important. Me and I thought I should be watching the show Bruce Zurich Bruce springsteen's on the stage. He's my hero. Why am I looking at my time wanting to post this before anyone else because a little bit of insanity does not that healthy and it's like it's a floor in my character pains? I kind of an extension of that. It's like I think we talk into Steve Milton a few weeks back whenever it was and he said a similar thing he was like. I wanted to be off my phone. This show actually concentrate and it's incredibly do because I will have the same feeling like oh I should tweet the set list and then I'm like. Why do you think it's important that you do this? and it is and and I showed the first episode to my wife and g thought it was funny but she was a little disturbed. She's like they're not nice to each other nice. It did and I said Yeah. I think that's part of the you know. The premise is and I do think they care about each other. But there is that unhealthiness that it's become instead of passion. It's become an obsession. Absolutely yeah absolutely. I totally agree that they're not the most likable. I actually think. I think he's been more likable that her. If only because I think deep down he might not really be a die. Hard Fan okay. I feel like there's a little part in my when you watch it as like. He feels like he needs to. He need this little very so joke in that. He's always wearing like boone in the USA. He knows the hits deep down. He just loves dance DAWG. Do you know what I mean yes. There's nothing wrong with that but Bruce fans that totally something with that. Yes.

Then let's hear Daniel talk about his springsteen journey and the episodes here so let's put the hardest set for two thousand sixteen in. Here is my discussion with Daniel Johnson about St Mary and Dave Plus Bruce Springsteen Hello everyone and welcome to a new episode of set lessening Bruce. Your podcast all about Bruce. Springsteen is music in mostly his fans. I'm your host Jesse Jackson. I always enjoy having people. Join me unsettling bruce. It is what we do. It is what I love but I especially am happy when I can get someone who's taken their love of Bruce and express it in a creative way and my guest today. Daniel has done exactly that Daniel. Welcome to the show. Thank you very much. Thanks for having me so tell our listeners. A little about yourself named Daniel Johnson I live in London New K. My passions of always been so mike and I love music unfortunately have no skills for music so It's it's listening to music which is more passionate. Which brings me to Bruce Right. Yeah Yeah and so. We're going to get into a little bit but Daniel has done so far too. And how many episodes are you hoping to make or? Is this a well? It's going to be. I think originally my plan was to have four episodes as like a first series. Okay And then to really decide it might just sit well as little four episode arc about Bruce fans or maybe it will. Ill continue on but the good thing about doing a web series is completely independent is. There's no rose Geno stop at the two. I've made only mall It depends on the availability of the actors. They're very talented and they get a lot of other acting jobs. So it's who knows where. Yeah well good. Well WE'RE GONNA get into that a little bit more. I have tweeted the link to The episodes and so hopefully my listeners have checked it out. And we'll also have more details in the show notes to bid at the start out with though you mentioned you have two passions own music and film making but talk about growing up. What what kind of captivated you about music and filmmaking. I noticed on your facebook page. You've got a clip from one of my favorite movies the apartment so it is such. It is such an unconventional love story. And it's such a you know we could get onto that for a whole hour department. How he feels so relevant and knew when I mean it doesn't feel dated whatsoever. Absolutely you know. Sometimes I recommend old friends out friends out films two friends. I have to warm. That is dated a woman by now. You have to give it a go but with the apartment I think you. We've in a few minutes watching. You'RE GONNA love it because it's so is so well made in it filled. If there's like it could be a modern film happened to be in black and white like Germany period film because it's so is just so well made I do agree and and you know I do the same thing you know. I'll discover an older film and I want to share it with a friend and And like you know the John Ford stagecoach like okay you. You're gonNA feel like this is a cliche big all the characters but understand. This was one of the first times they had done that kind of Lurie. Yeah absolutely and sometimes it's the films influenced films that end up looking the most unoriginal yet because we've seen everything that's come since NBA story going. No no no I was just GonNa say but like I had not seen in a while. I really had never watched the day. The Earth stood still the original and four or five years ago. I watched it I went. Oh my goodness you know. There are times when people say a movie is a classic and it's more for the influence at gave and how it broke ground and then there's other times where go that's just a great movie absolutely fucked because I think that the apartment and Bruce there's something very similar in town do you know what I mean like. The apartment is just something that was very. I think if you love. The apartment is a very personal connection to very personal movie and I think that is like the relationship. People have reversed remain bravo than it being. The apartment doesn't always get people listed top ten films that ended in the apartment. Something this always there bought the people who do love it really love it. Yeah and Daniel. In a lot of ways the Shirley maclaine character could could very easily be a character in Bruce Song. I had a friend once that said that often The female characters in Bruce Songs have a little bit of a pass dinner a little bit damaged as the male characters. And so you know. I've never thought about that before. But the apartment truly could be a springsteen song. Yeah because you know And we talked a little bit on email before about thunder road at right like they both have flaws in that song and they're finding each other and I think the characters in the apartment the same thing absolutely. Yeah Oh yeah very interesting so I WanNa go both ways so you you're picked you WanNa talk about growing what kind of music you listen to growing up or you. WanNa talk first or films you wanted to talk about Whatever I mean we can talk about. Music Will Cross Iowa but yeah music. It's funny because you implied in email. You'd be awesome. That kind of question trying to think about where I came from like two things from a one is our member you know it might take my parents I remember. Just sit in. That'd be sitting in the living room watching TV or doing whatever that'd be doing and my dad had this big pair of headphones. Nice to sit in the corner with headphones on and just would be very records CDs and stuff just to sit in the listening and like so much of my interest in music came from experience and that was a very young age. That was who knows like eight nine ten eleven and in the second. Paul that is. I think in school around the age of fourteen fifteen. I didn't think I was different to allow the kids. I didn't have the same interest as them. In whatever was feeding their minds in their lives in society wasn't wasn't doing the same thing for me and I need to something different and that came from. Yeah from films from books and from the music listen to and it was around them when I started finding is thought I still to this day. Obviously including Bruce Daniel. Do you know like what kind of are there? A couple of films that really struck you as. Oh my God this is something magical and maybe influenced you a good question. Do you know what's interesting is is my interest in film. I never had that experience that people talk about when they watched. Et and it just took shoot for me. It's a lot more again. Is that personal connection of again like the apartment is an interesting point because I mean I've got the poster in my room here I've got. Its its films like that. And it wasn't always. I mean I remember when Jerry Maguire came out I was out in the Arizona like twelve when that came out and that again is not necessarily anyone seizes the classic movie but something about the character in his journey just connected with it. Was that thing of being able to watch a film and see someone go through the everyday conflicts that we all go through and come out. The side is a change person and that for me was the magic of it. Didn't have to be the big SCIFI movies or any. Do you know what I mean. It was Ju- things into this day. Like it's funny everyone again. I have like a movie night. My Bravo will watch like a bunch of films and we're very specific in the. We only like stuff that we feel like almost like it would have to be able to happen to us in that place as soon as we see someone jump on a spaceship now. That's not the film. We call them once thought one madden really real. Yeah I totally understand. I am a big comic book. Nerd and I love You know a lot of science fiction films and everything but it is the smaller like a for some reason notting hill as a modern film. Just if I'm flipping channels in its on. I'm locked in absolutely yesterday. I love that journey. And just the the back and forth of that I think that is as well like you know especially with romance films. I nine here is a great example. Is that it's sometimes. It's hard as a guy to be that romantic or to admit you care about love that Mung so when you frau on one of these films and we make these excuses hours just flicking and Blah Blah Blah. But actually I think it really resonates helps us Lavar. Apo- vessels that we probably don't always give ourselves access to and I also think not only is it a. It's a neat story and great performances. But I love the soundtrack on that movie and the way they use music like on their date and when they they go over the wall and they're really and that way you know when you say nothing at all which is one of my favorite songs and capture that and then the The year you go through where. He's walking amusing yes Really really create. Does some of that film? I think he was Elvis. Costello's shape was in a great music and that foam. Yeah Migrate Absolutely so Daniel Wind. Did you find Bruce? And why was he something special to you good? Good question I you know I was one of my favorite bands when ours was counting cards. You're with their work. And they cover bruce quite law and they had one of their songs rain king where they would actually sing the whole of thunder road in the middle of it. Honey if you haven't heard it and the listener is what I love it by. Grew up with it. Some people in our real. Bruce Traditionalist listen to it and they're like. Oh is wreck in the song but I love it and they covered Atlantic City and some other bits and pieces. And there's something in that van. I loved the tone of what I sang about him when I was finding bird and this was also a member as well in. I mean I was born in Nineteen eighty-four. Okay by time. Napster came around which I think was late. Ninety S I was. I was just very curious about music and I would. If someone had a cover of us is really interesting kava versions of songs to the point where you know obviously like everyone. I knew born in the USA but an thunder road and born to a biologist outgoing type so name and download everything that could have been a cover of it..

"Oh that sounds great Daniel So I'm getting ended with Do you have a couple of songs that you haven't heard him perform live besides glory days. That's on your wishlist of thing. You'd I want to hear what he played bloggers today. Australia kill to hear that yes. He played back in your arms in Dublin. Wish I could have had that. Ah Love to hear Frankie and I'd love to hear real world songs. That know people told me that much but some solo versions. He's done of real world like he on CNN. How I would I think such a great the album version I can take or leave baton when it's just him so I think is an brilliant? I'd love to hear that. Did you see the set list of the show. He did for President Obama's staff I did. Yeah Oh someone boot like that. I just that looked like it was so much fun to see him. Just him and income to be. Oh we hope so. And now Alvin we sound like Marian Day. Yeah like he played my father's house which I thought was so interesting. Never plays it on interest in decision Zeeshan guys to show like even though it's only people like us that take settlers seriously. I feel like this so much meaning to them.

Breaking down the apartment. I wouldn't that be fun. I've got a critic quick story here so billy wilder who made the apartment were directed it. I am a huge age big fan of these films and then about eight years ago I wrote a blog post bribery goodbye on the Internet and about his films and about the apartment and I got an email from a woman about is really what you wrote about. Billy and has surname was water and turns out the billy. Water is as her great uncle and anyway a few years we kept in touch Kennedy mouse reliability and in a few years back she she email mentions like what could I have your address and she sent me a poster that billy wilder he got an award.

The belong to billy water dreaded the apartment. Oh that is some. What of what a lovely gift? I the nicest gift and it's just and it feels like a thing that whenever I'm working on my films are getting down like come on this like the pace of Pity wilder like. That's him right there. You know what I mean. It's kind of it's a big motivator and films all were amazing I'm incur just so well done and That's that's that's a great story that you've seen. Have you seen double indemnity. Yes it's just and just puff. It just made some really. puffy films is incredible. Yeah you know it's hard you know growing up the way I did at I was at the tail end of my three sons in the Walt Disney movies of Fred macmurray right yeah eight and and The Captain Marvel was modeled after him. You know the comic book character and and to see him in such an evil role yeah And and I have a massive crush on Barbara Stanwick. I just she was such an interesting actress. And and The Lady Eve you. You're just one of my favorite films so it's interesting it's funny. How like in Hollywood? There's so much talk about how you know. Women Doug get the great rose and women casinos these beautiful objects but when you go back into history cinema. The women were such characters in these black moves. Yes they were stunningly beautiful but they will also complex and flawed and fascinating. I think that's why they still hold so much pill. Yeah and you know some like it hot and and just this is just a complex of films that they made Yeah we'll we'll we'll do this a couple of months so that'll be fun. Yeah so we're GONNA end with maybe you'll be out there on that road somewhere in some bus or train traveling along in some motel room. They'll be a radio playing and you'll hear me sing the song. Well if you do you know I'm thinking of you and all the miles in between and I'm just calling you one last last time not to change your mind just to say I miss you baby. Good luck goodbye. Bobby Jane thank you listeners. Back thank you Daniel. We'll talk to you soon sir All right thank thank you sir. I appreciate it and of anything. Better than speaking to a Bruce van for an hour about grosses to Britain. But you know what I love. The most is the idea. They're ignoring their daughter. And as you said not for greatest purpose right like I'm sure like president and Michelle. Obama did their best to not exclude their daughters into be there. But you you at least understand if there's things I'm messing soccer games or are missing recitals. Because I'm serving the country these would be. It's because I wanted to. I didn't want to miss a live broadcast on a radio program or something and it's just it's just so wonderful Jesse. The worst part of it is we can totally relate to that like because there's a of you would the I could imagine if I had tickets to Bruce Show and then there's a wedding meant and to be a I'm like well you know you probably get divorced. But this GIG. He my wife. He plays a song where he played up from his Daniel true story and I will probably probably add this in as a credit sequence so My wife was training to do a full ironman and she needed to go down to galveston Texas to do a half Ironman as a test. She wanted to do this to see if she could do it. And then if you could kind of gauge your fitness and you're ready to go show end so she said from the beginning I don't need you go You've been to my first official half ironman. This is truly just a training Trip her sister Mary he was going with her and my son Chris and she said you there is no need to go. I said you sure you don't mind. No she goes. I don't mind okay. I said okay. Well then I'll just stay say at home and kind of keep the homefires burning. Well after that Bruce announced that he was doing the free show in Dallas Texas for the NC double a basketball tournament. Yeah which was the day of her half firemen and Linda said so. What would you have done if I had not told you in advance? You didn't have to go and I'm like I probably would have still gone to the show. She says well someone said well. What if she gets injured and I said well you know there's flights at start as early as five? Am I could get down to the GAL sue. I we're all a little bit of Marian Day even yeah absolutely absolutely and I and maybe yeah. That's why I'm picking up. Maybe that's why you relate to it because your Modi even Mary than you realize I the I think all of us. If they are honest to themselves there is that There is a you know a lot. We call it passion but it is very close to obsession and there. Is that little bit of well. What if he plays that song that I've been chasing? Here's a question I'm interested in is let's say if I the planet show across the world somewhere. Yeah I stay up to three o'clock in the morning to follow other people type and down the songs he plays in a set list live. What what do I get from that from finding out? Let's say Kay he's played played the losing kind for the first time. Ever whatever like yeah what do I get it from finding out in the moment that I don't get if I wake up in the morning and readers settlers like do you know what I mean like. Why are we should inched in how we get obsessed in that manner I find it fascinating Asman? I do too you know and the other thing that I've talked about a lot is how luckier we You know my other. Big Obsession was Brian Wilson and the beach each boys and You know when couple years ago Brian was doing a tour and Bruce showed up at the encore and and played with them onstage and So I got to see it. Thanks to you know Youtube and of course all my family and friends and said if you had been in that room you would have said I can die. Forget seeing my son get married. Forget seeing grandchildren. Children Bruce Springsteen Brian Wilson on the same stage me away Lord. I am happy you know. Yeah I a very similar thing so yeah. That's the showers a high talk in two thousand twelve yeah Paul McCartney walks out on stage now to be like anyone especially being English. Of course I love the Beatles like everyone does better. I'm not obsessed you know. I don't really listen to him. That much and also Paul McCartney. I've seen him on TV singing. Hey Jude in the Lafayette. And I'm like always voice is not good. Any Javid Tile Bah when Paul McCartney down that stage that's a fatal that's a beat up on the stage and it was just incredible to have bruce springsteen and a beetle together with it was just increased imaging. Incredible Label Linemen and crime and praying towards. You know what I mean I totally. I'm a big. I'm a big. I realized how much bigger Beatles Fan than I I thought I was. Because Paul McCartney will out there It's not a day completely changing topic about what happens when the Queen dies all my friends in England. All who cares if the Queen's road our people don't believe in the royal family but I'm telling you win the Queen Dies you'll realize how she shapes. Oh she's a big part of their lives. Do you know what I mean. I totally Daniel My. You know I'm here in Dallas Texas but like Linda at the end of December of two housing sixteen in word came out that you know Queen. Elizabeth wasn't going to be able to travel for the holidays. Said is two thousand sixteen of the year. We lose the Queen. Exactly you know. Yeah and And then don't even get me you know. They're like she goes. I don't even WanNa talk about when Bruce goes and I said yeah. I know what you're saying but yeah and I know well yes e- I I think everyone suddenly started to realize the Bruce isn't a young man anymore. I think it does creep into people's Stolz and everyone whenever they go to a GIG. No ooh sign..
"daniel johnson" Discussed on Set Lusting Bruce: The Springsteen Podcast
"Little personal opinion. Only a little too MANUSHA and a little too might mice. I've talked talked about. I Love Comic Books and I'm And and I you know In every once in a while my son and my son and wife ago too much that's version of going okay. You you've outcome become charming obsessed to. I'm a little worried about Chu. Yeah exactly and Marian Dave or a little too much and joy drug. That hasn't been totally exploited yet. Is they've got a daughter who really is like. She's like I thing on their mind. Light number twelve it another number. One is Bruce springsteen brings day number two is who's the big bruce springsteen fine number three is just so Bruce Bruce Bruce and eventually they're like. Oh Yeah we have a kid. Probably we should probably take care of her. which by the way in the second episode we meet her? We meet her current boyfriend. Who seems the nicest guy ever you're right and and she's the daughter is very healthy and seems to be well adjusted but yes it is the very last last thing and a longtime ago We were talking to a lady Who had done the Ironman ironman triathlon and she talked about her ex husband was a Arman competitor as well and she says it doesn't work well in a family if both of you are competing at that level Because you need someone when your dog tired after training to cook the dinner to wash the clothes and the funny thing is well like then. No it's not like they've got a higher go. It's not like they're going to be the big. The best musicians ever or politician right therefore the Doda a case. You'll be a bit messed up. But there's a bigger goal was serving the community and she'll grow up to have an important role none these two bruce springsteen fans who like there's no the and I talked a lot about. I believe there is a beauty to this modern world in social media that you can become friends and in feel a connection like when I see you on twitter twitter going forward I will smile and if I see you talking about a show although oh good it's my friend Daniel. I will call you my friend because we've connected. We have Bruce Together. You've been on the podcast so I think there's a beauty to that and we joke every once in a while and there's this one percent at that when you meet live you go. I don't know if I particularly enjoy your company and Marian. Dave are a little bit of the like the first episode really talks about them. The argument of which ones bigger fan yen and Mary is a little more competitive. But not by much and then the second episode is instead of just admitting we'll get tickets they got this elaborate plan of pretending they're at the show because it is important important and I'm using air quotes that they post the set list. Well here's the thing we're just quickly. I was at Zurich show the nausea the European toll. And I I come in with the I think the previous night but I remember like wanting to be the first one to post. That seemed seemed really important to me and I should be watching the show bridge. I mean I mean Zurich Bruce springsteen's on the stage. He's my hair are why I'm looking at my phone wanting to post this before or anyone else because a little bit of insanity does not that healthy and it's like it's a floor in my character pain so it's kind of an extension of that. It's like I think talking to Statement a few weeks back whenever it was and he said a similar thing he was like. I wanted to be off my phone this show and actually concentrate enjoyed and it. It's incredible I totally do because I will have the same feeling alike. Oh I should tweet the set bliss and then I'm like why do you think it's important that you do this And it is and and I showed the first episode to my wife and g thought it was funny but she was a little disturbed. She's like they're not very nice to each the other nice and I said Yeah. I think that's part of the you know. The premise is and I do think think they care about each other. But there is that unhealthiness that it's become instead of passion. It's become an obsession absolutely. Yeah yeah absolutely. I totally agree that they're not the most likable. I actually think he's a bit more likable her. If only because I think deep down he might not really really be a die hard fan okay. I there's a little party might when you watch. Yeah there's like a feels like he needs to. He need this little very subtle. No joke in that he's always wearing like boom. USA t-shirt he knows the hits and deep down he just loves dance DAWG. Do you know what I mean name. Yes and there's nothing wrong with that but bruce vans they're totally something with that. Yes you know what I mean so I totally do Daniel. It's it's it's the joke right. Like your favorite song is dancing in the dark as in you know. This is a a slur. I don't say an upset too when he's got requests. Signed those guys Bobby Jean or Jane even though they played it over time and also it's it's like an inner voice voice in my head and this is totally ridiculous which is like you asked me. You know what's an album that means someone to what's this song you WanNa you know there's without doubt is ridiculous addictive it is it is. There's some voice in my head that's like Jeez better not say born to run. I will the Bruce Band a real fan so god what severity I should say. And it's it's meant it's crazy but it's also about wanting to belong. We all want to belong to a community and there's something very beautiful Abou- now as you said at one percent we will found each other online the wheel care about the same thing. We've in a community that still still going to be on the same crap that you get everywhere else. But now it's all about Bruce and I I totally agree Daniel and in another like I was lucky me and my good friend. Sam would When we worked together you know went to lunch together? Almost every day and in in eastern radio's on and we would talk about you know if we got lucky enough to be the boss and on the you know where you get to pick five songs. and and Sam's point was and I totally agree with it. He said this is a radio station. That is about Bruce Springsteen and mostly listening to people listened by people who love Bruce Springsteen. Have though if you pick five songs you don't pick thunder road because everyone thinks about. The road is one of their favorites right and so when I got lucky enough enough to do I thought about that. I'm like okay Obviously I could go thunder road and and you know or or a tougher than the rest or Promised Land You know jungle and all these songs that you go but that's kind of implied I that they are something so right. So that's the it's almost like It on sports teams. They'll say well. Of course this guy or Gal goes without saying they're hall of Famer. I mean we don't even have have to discuss like if you're talking about. Let's go back to a restarted We're GONNA discuss some of the greatest romantic films in the world world. Okay well we're just going to go ahead and put the apartment on there because you don't even need to debate. That's a lot. Yeah Yeah Yeah. Great well I love the actors. I you know the actress who plays Mary because she starts out arguing with yet a paper about them getting a quote incorrect. Where'd you find him in an in an are they bruce fans the no deb Deborah's not abuse and she's so him a few friends she got? Tickets consortium the emerets stadium is also football stadium. I think it was a wreck Utah. Maybe it was magic to hire members fears back and she fo- she would love and she didn't she didn't really know the songs and then by the time the song she knew came on the Johnston the dock and all that kinda stuff she was drunk tide of thinking. You know what I mean way for hours for it then of casual fans people in particular fans like for example. If I'm not a big youtube fan base someone gave me tickets to go see you to. I want to hear that. I want to hear the hit Stein gentleman so I feel like she had that experience. Steve The American actor in the show who plays Dave he I think was a fine and familiar. And like Bruce Bruce but now now he's listening. Deeper this with a series I think is kicked him on gas to To listen more and actually I'm soon in a cost of a guy in it. Sohn's Christian and who he. He's a big fan is bigger. Vans me I'm going to be action in it. So that's that's fun but They inched in Yet found him an alias. Danny plays the daughter is I think he's Oetzi at two. I want to stress again. How wonderful she is in this? And thank you for mentioning that they are buried. Davor for the most irresponsible presidents up from parents. We could see yeah Lilly. Yeah so I'M GONNA FINISH UP WITH A a couple of Bruce questions but so Daniel. How can we support your art? I think this is. I think it's funny. I think it's insightful. And I think it is a loving kind of tongue in cheek mirror shown to remind us not not to be Marian Dave at times. What is the best way we can support? You know. The honest thing is is just watching it and share in it because you now the the end of the day. I've made a short web series about Bruce Springsteen fans it's not going to you know even if it was the best thing it's not GonNa Win Awards. It's not not going to earn money. It's all about just wanting people to connect with their and I don't have the money to to market the thing. It's really like what you're doing by doing podcasts. To support quoted if anyone has a blog our end of DAB made it the only people really that are GonNa love it a Bruce springsteen France right. I'm in Secondary Kandara to that may be music fans. Let's say for example if there's a you to find he he done this. WHO's a superfan? He'd understand it and enjoy it. Yeah outside of people. I Love Love Love Music. A lot of people might just be a bit confused by. I'm so I wanted to make something. That really hits the Niche that you know the I belong to which she's loved music and can understand it so it's really about the community. A Bruce fans sharing it so greasy like backstreets tweeted now and a lot of support us from that. So it's really just about Sharon. I'm not looking for anyone's money or financing for project. It's nothing like that. It's literally if anyone can. Yeah you type any St Mary. Ann Day when you dream there so my website. Just find it what she could share it well I will also reach out to Peter with blogging us on the edge of town. I don't know if he's mentioned it in his blog but I I think he should I I I just and I certainly will. We'll have the links in the show notes and I'll continue to post it I think it's great and Hey selfishly three if there's a there's a place underneath the youtube for comments if you heard about it from set loosening Bruce wouldn't hurt my feelings. If you put that down there guys Hamster Fisher. I'll be sharing your beginning. This interview farm. Why Bose like you say it so you know and the good thing and from doing this show a lot of my followers? You know twitter this quite a few bruce fans there now that we're never before so it's a great way that we can support each other's projects absolutely get views you know What else do you have what you have coming up next? You said you've got you're working on a third episode. What else are you working on? I'm I'm actually China This year my real tug is to kind of hide away in some long form projects. Brian each film GonNa ride if you compilers and stuff and I've caught a for many years. Now I've I make short films like the ones you talked about sort of fun project to learn in the craft. I have the live in is I create Shirelles for actors which basically means actors who haven't been on TV and film yet are right scenes. Director netted them to show two two directors. What they can do? That's resting. Yes really sort of inched empower the industry. So that's why I do today but now I'm really trying to just black black those bigger projects I WANNA riot. So there's not there's going to be low to me out there to watch this. She necessarily I might do a few more do more east remarry but yeah. It's more about just trying to hide away and get some work done this year..

"Well then I'm listening to set. lusting Bruce Starring Jesse Jackson who I met last year in Dallas. He's a beautiful man. Rock on Jesse Jesse. Hello everyone and welcome to a new. The episode of set lessening Bruce. Your podcast all about Bruce. Springsteen is music in mostly his fans. I'm your host Jesse Jackson. I always enjoy having people join me onset. Less than Bruce. It is what we do is what I love but I especially am happy when I I can get someone who's taken their love of Bruce and express it in a creative way and my guest yesterday. Daniel has done exactly that Daniel. Welcome to the show. Thank you very much. Thanks for having me so tell our listeners. A little bit about yourself My name's dining Johnson I live in London. UK My two passions avoid been Makin love music. Unfortunately I have no skills for music so It's it's listening to music which is my passion. Which of course brings with Bruce Right? Yeah Yeah and So we're going to get into a little bit but Daniel has done So far to and how many episodes are you hoping to make or is this a well. It's GONNA be. I think originally my plan was to have four episodes as like a first Siri's okay And then to really decide it might just sit. Wow Is this little four episode arc about breach fans or maybe it will l.. Continue on but the good thing about doing a web series that is completely independent is. There's no roles. Do you know what I mean. I could just stop at the two. I've made only more It depends on the availability of the actors. They're very talented and they get a lot of acting jobs. So it's who knows but yeah well good. WELL WE'RE GONNA get into that a little bit more. I have tweeted the link to The episodes roads and so hopefully my listeners objected out and we'll also have more details in the show notes to bid the start out with though you mentioned you have two passions you know music and film making but talk about growing up. What what Kinda captivated you about music and filmmaking I noticed on your facebook page. You've got a clip from one of my favorite movies. The apartment so hello it is such it is such an unconventional love story. And and such a you know we we could get on to that for a whole hour out so now about the apartment feels so relevant and knew when when I mean it doesn't feel dated whatsoever absolutely do you know. Sometimes when I recommend out friends Out Friends out films two friends. I have to warn them that is dated dated a woman. But you know you have to give it a gut but with the apartment I think you within a few minutes of watching it. You'RE GONNA love it because it's so so well made it filled. It feels like it could be modern film to happen to be in black and white like a period film because it's so is just so well may I do agree and and and you know I do the same thing you know. I'll discover an older film and I'LL WANNA share it with a friend and And like you know the John John Ford stagecoach like okay you. You're going to feel like this is a cliche big all the characters but understand. This was one of the first time they had done on that kind of Laurie. Yeah absolutely and sometimes it's the films of influence other films. The end up looking the most unoriginal yet. Because we've seen everything that's come come since I started going. No no no I was just GonNa say but like I had not seen in a while or I really had never watch watch the day the Earth stood still the original and four or five years ago. I watched I went. Oh my goodness there are times. When people say a movie he is a classic and it's more for the influence it gave and how it broke ground? Yeah and then. There's other times where you go. Ah That's just a great movie absolutely and it's funny because I think that the apartment and bruised. There's something very similar in town. Do you know what I mean. The apartment is just something that was very. I think if you love. The apartment is a very personal connection to very personal movie and I think that is like the relationship issue people have reversed. You know what I mean bothered in being. The apartment doesn't always get listed top ten films ending the apartments. Something this always there bought Bob the people who do love it really love it. Yeah and Daniel in a Lotta ways the Shirley maclaine character could could very very easily be a character in Abreu Song you know. I had a friend once that said that often the female characters in Bruce Songs have a little bit of a past and are a little bit damaged as is the male characters. And so you know. I've never thought about that before. But the apartment truly could be a springsteen song. Yeah because you know And we talked a little bit on email before about thunder road at right like they both have flaws in that song and they're finding each other there and I think the characters in the apartment the same thing absolutely yeah instant yeah very interesting so I wanna go both ways so you you're picked you wanNA talk about growing. What kind of music you listen to growing up or you WANNA talk first or films you wanted to talk about about whatever I mean? We talked about music and I'm not sure I will do cross over but yeah music. It's funny 'cause you implied email. You'd be awesome question. I was trying to think about where where I came from. I think two things one is. I remember. It might be my parents I remember. Just sit in. That'd be sitting in the living room watching TV or whatever that'd be doing and my dad had this big pair of headphones and is to sit in the corner with headphones on and just would be begun varies records and he say days and stuff just to sit in that listen and like so much of my interest in music came from die experience and that has a very young age. That was nice like eight nine ten eleven and in the second. Paul that is I think in school around the age of fourteen. Fifteen if Dane. I didn't I think I was different to allow the other kids. I didn't have the same interests them. and whatever was feeding their minds in their lives in society wasn't and wasn't doing the same thing for me and I needed something different and that came from from films from books and from the music. Listen to and it was around them when I started finding you know the the I still to this day obviously including burst Daniel. Do you know like like what kind of are there a couple of films that really you know struck you as Oh my God this is something magical in maybe influenced you a good question. You know it's interesting. This is my interest in film. I never had that experience that people talk about when and you know they watched eat he and it and it just took rushing for me. It's a lot more against that personal connection of you know again like the the apartment is an interesting point because I'm a poster in my room here I've got. Its its films like that and it. It wasn't a ways I mean I remember when Jerry Maguire Guac came out I was only I was like twelve when that came out and that again is not necessarily anyone sees as a classic movie but something about the character in his journey. I'm just connected with me. And it was that thing of being able to watch a film and see someone go food the everyday conflicts that we'll we'll go through and come out. The other side is a changed person and that for me was the magic of it. It didn't have to be the big sci fi movies or any Jonah on a main things that into this day like it's funny everyone again. I have a movie night. My Bravo will watch like a bunch of films was and we're very specific in the. We only like stuff that we feel like almost like it would be able to happen to us if you had in that place and as soon as as we see someone jump on a spaceship when now that's not the film homeless that one really real. Yeah I I totally understand. I am a big comic book Nerd and I love You know a lot of science fiction films and everything but it is the smaller caller like for some reason notting hill as a modern film. Just if I'm flipping channels in its on. I'm locked locked in absolutely guessing. I love that journey. And just the yeah the back and forth of that Do you know I think that is as well. Like a specially with like romance films. I know in here was a great example. Is that it's sometimes. It's hard as a guy to be that romantic or to admit you care about love that monkey so when you from one of these films and we might these excuses always just flicking through and blahdy Blah but actually I think it really resonates helps us live ourselves ourselves that we probably don't always give ourselves access to you know and and I also think not only is it a it's a neat story and great performances services but I love the soundtrack on that movie and the way they use music on their date and when they go over the wall all and and that scene where you know when you say nothing at all which is one of my favorite songs and they just capture that and then the The year you go through our. He's walking in the museum. Yes really really create does some of that film I think he was Elvis. Costello's The steelers shave great music in that though migrate absolutely so Daniel Win. Did you find Bruce and why I was he some things specialty. Good good question. I I was one of my favorite bands when ours was counting. Crows their work. And they they'd cover bruce quite law and they had one of their songs rain king where they would actually sing the whole of thunder road in the middle of it. Honey honey if you haven't heard it and the listeners it's what I love it by grew up with some people you know real bruce traditionalist listen to it and they're like Oh always wreck in the song but I love it and they covered Atlantic City and some of based on pieces. And there's something in that band. I loved the tone of they sing about him when I was finding this. Remember as well in nineteen I mean I was born in nineteen ninety four okay and by time napster came around trusting was with the late nineties. I was I was just very curious about music and I would if someone had cover of US interested in cover versions of songs to the point where you know obviously like everyone I knew born in the USA but and thunder road and born to a biologist outgoing type in the song name and download. Everything could've been a cover of it and I just died..

"I am going to try on Thursdays each week. This year. To do a throwback Thursdays episode. I we'll take an episode. That was released several years ago. Re release it with a new introduction and give you guys a chance that if you have listened into you can revisit. If you haven't listened to it in the past you could catch it on. It'll be like a new episode.
