"Vice president by the time I left so. I realized Oh. I loved being where the action was with my buyer and I loved leadership but I didn't always want to do it for everybody else if that made sense. And so Darren I kept in touch I love dries doing it yahoo it was a special time with special people. I did some great work their heads in great deals certainly proud of the work learned a lot of new stuff. And I. Couldn't shake Darren. We were. or I come from a long line of entrepreneurs and sales folk And I feel like it's in my DNA to do my own thing. And so. We got together. He had flown to, Chicago. We are living in Chicago at the time We had a lot of meetings about. Wanting to go back to what we had done at Jacobson and wanting to do it better because there were certain limitations that we had in certain things that I think the executive team there they weren't really interested in pursuing that we were that we were hearing from our buyer. And so the time was right and Darren and I both equally invested in the company and started broad path, which is still a company to this day that was in two thousand eight. Two Thousand Eight was two, thousand, eight so That's no election year in that election year not only was the economy breaking apart, but the big themes at that time were around the autos in the collapse of the autos and the bear stearns of the world in the Bernie. Madoff said the world in at the same time it was also about healthcare. And remember we were focusing on managed care organizations from I went from having. A seven figure pipeline of clients that were so happy to have. Darren. I back. And I remember I was at like almost closed one right like like I'm at ninety percent assurance at this thing is going to. Be Done. Deal. And within like a ten day timeframe. Everything dried up. It was like the Sahara desert in the reason being was guess what we'll talk to you in two and a half years but we need to figure out what's going to happen with healthcare because depending on who gets elected. There's GonNa be a lot of regulation on change. We don't know what we don't. And then website it was Oh, and by the way we're also tied to the autos and if they collapse we collapsed too. So. Yeah, that sucked. I will never forget I was in a home depot parking lot and. Not Home Depot Office Depot Lot and I called Darren. We'd had lots of conversations, but I was crying I was like I can't do this. Anymore I couldn't do it anymore because we still believe in bootstrapping versus taking on outside funding. Personally. For variety reasons and he felt the same way. And I said you now this is straining my personal relationships is straining my financial situation. And I don't have the wherewithal to not do anything for and a half years in this business like in terms of of the economics. And even Darren was questioning it and Darren's financial situation in where he was living. What he was doing is very different than mine and I'm so proud of him. I stepped away. That was the hardest thing I had to do. I'm really proud of the fact that even I stepped away. We are still good. We were still good. That's really hard to do and. He stuck with it and sacrificed so much and flash forward to twelve years later in that company's absolutely thriving I'm thrilled for him. So that's. When did you start your company Avenue town part? So so okay two thousand, eight happens. That was a sad day. I had to eat crow and go back to Yahoo. That was amazing and I'm grateful and thank you for bringing me back. WHO executive team? but I also knew that it was a bridge and I need to just sort of like get my breath back again and get my feet underneath me start thinking through like okay. I've got a recovering. I wanted just get back to being the best version of me which is A Cadillac they they were a great catalyst for that. There is a little company at the time called indeed that was giving like the yard was in career builders in the monsters around for their money and one of our executives went over from Yahoo too indeed. And recruited me over to be the first the first enterprise. Sales person to build out a territory in A. Time of being a Guinea pig I love the build. That's my mom. I loved Yahoo Yahoo. was in building anything in. So the work is different and so I like being where the action is I like building I like being close to my customer like being able to do things on their behalf that make them better without a lot of the red tape in in bureaucracy. So long story short. They recruited me in here I was the very first person that they hired to do this. But also I was remote they were all in Stanford Connecticut. Their Tech Team was in Austin and here's this this. person that's in Chicago and Yeah I was employee number twenty something in was there through a significant exit so that's my startup. Kind of. Moment of awesomeness because when you go through that in the fruits of your labor in the work was hard they didn't advertise. We didn't have a fully baked out anything. On. and. You go through that and it builds into something and then there's an exit like that. That's like the most amazing feeling ever and that's where I was bit and then you start chasing that like drug in.

This guy knows what he's talking about even though he sounds like a saw. That's the that's the other funny thing I can share with you about being from the south and then now migrated north and people. I'm already crazy but then people think wow what really made you come up here. I was at a friend's house Over here and he is in Minnesota side and I'm already starting to say at Minnesota Yalta just brought out of the blue I blurted. Oh Yeah you betcha and it I mean it came out of my mouth like naturally And he even turned to me and stopped talking right and you know bed technology side of it was I had to help him. Go Stream as packers game. Because Minnesota they had it blacked out. And because I'm from Wisconsin. I had I use my direct TV account at croke calf. You don't jump on. Read it and watch the sports on there which I logged into my account. That's good it's fine. I taught him how to chrome cast so out of chrome casted. I'm I'm kind of wondering though we you've gone through a whole like I'm seeing you and I can see this on the Cameron. I'm sorry for our listeners. It can't you originally had your your setup and it was in the living room and you had a beautiful view of this beautiful acreage that you have now. It looks like you're in an attic is that it wasn't the living room office that was on the back side of the house. Yeah no that picture. Yeah the view was too good for me to do anything constructive right. I mean I I just I almost lost my a willingness to do anything in front of a screen I mean I'm blessed. I am blessed. I appreciate what I've been given and so no. This is actually Mama's office she ed. This is her room. She allowed me to creep in hurt. Share her office space even though she didn't want me here. But we are in the third floor and the third floor of the home is built where the center is It's got a weird structure. You have the picture you saw the chat there. We're one of the side rooms on the on the front so it looks like an attic. But it's yeah I like it. You know we were talking about. There are so many people now that we talked about streaming getting up in front of the camera that actually want to do their own broadcasts I don't know if you saw this picture the other day but office depot office depot officemax. I guess it is or staples in your your area. Do you have those out there. I think they do. Yeah okay. So they acid man too. I don't know piggly-wiggly I mean we don't get picked but no those are down southeast. So but what they have. A section now If you go into these office supply stores. They're starting to see the average person that comes in off the street. That says I want to do a podcast or I wanNA do a vodka. I WANNA do which is video podcast. They now have materials for the broadcaster to do stuff on the Internet. Now and you know we were kind of talking about that and you're thinking what kind of what kind of materials would you need to get and what would work you know. And we're talking about green screen. The technology is there now that you could do a green screen even with a Webcam the Logitech Brio which is their fourcade. Webcam has the software installed that will actually allow you to green screen. So you can put this you go out and you buy this green screen you put up behind you and then you say okay. I want this background on it and next thing you know you've got a different background so you're not even people who have like say you wanted to maybe hide the computers behind you that. I'm looking at you. Have that green screen up there. You bring up the camera software view that I was looking at behind me exactly and you can't. You can't tell five to ten years ago if you WANNA do green screen. It was a little more of a process. You could do it but honestly it was real difficult to light. You'd have to be real picky on your lightning lighting. You'd have to have sidelights rear light to separate that green otherwise. The person looked like they had green hair. You know that it's the technology is totally changing that. If you want to do a podcast Broadway if you wanted to have your own show you could and I know that you don't even have to have a green screen though realistically the software out there let us any solid like said that I could actually just hang a sheet any solid color. You just gotTa hang it behind you or put it behind you. Know there's a lot of those gamers and younger kids that do this where they'll be playing playstation or their their xboxes R. P. C.'s. And they do. They have a small little rude. Like I'm in or you know they're in their own bedroom but they have something right behind them. We're all you see them with their chair. And they're gaming on their consoles or whatever or sometimes what one of the things is and if you look at streaming channels whether you're looking at or darkness four to nine on on facebook no matter which one you're looking at you sometimes. They'll put themselves in a little box down to the bottom of the Games. Actually what you're seeing on the screen. Because that's what you're watching the game but you're listening to the person playing the game correct. And they're making it easier with microphones as well. You know honestly for anybody that wants to create a podcast or vowed cast I say yeah. You got to focus on the content. That's gotta be important. It's more what you're creating what you're saying having the technologies one thing but make your audio sound good. You make your make your audio sound Chris because if you want them to listen to you on demand the thing is the live is a great feature. But let's face it people are gonNA come back and watch you on demand if they're GONNA do that. They wanted audio to be the best there is. And there's some great microphones that are on the market that are in that consumer price range. I mean the microphones were using. I mean this. This is a seven hundred dollar Mike and Norman which puts out a thirteen hundred dollar Mike and they sound great. Those are good for commercial. Production but for a podcast. You honestly can do a really good presentation for for a microphone. That'll cost you man. Maybe one hundred bucks and I'm looking for that solution myself because I'm thinking about becoming a a glorified Gamer You know just because I'm in my mid life doesn't mean I can't come a professional game or does it. What kind of games do you play though? Like what would they be interesting? Do you play candy crush. Do Oh hold on. Yeah jokes actually play Mobile Games. I play some games like candy crush. I play a game called hill climbing racer to write and competitive game you have crews and you build a little car stuff. I don't like a lot of the micro transaction games micro transactions whereas all heading but me and you raised in the quarter you know. Put the quarter in and play the game and you get that one to three minutes. But not how good you are that concept. I try to stay away from. I do play a lot on the. Ps Four. Whenever I get into my moods I do currently on red dead redemption to now you're on the. Ps four though not the PC. So I back. I go back and forth between the PS four and a PC. Because I used to combat games on the PC but there's too many controls now and old people can't click their fingers. That fast. With I I have a better advantage with tactics with a controller. That only has maybe six bucks compared to a keyboard and it has fifteen bindings zero terrifying me because I'm vacillating right now. Between going red dead redemption to for the or call of duty the new one for the PC. But I haven't honestly had never have time to game but I figured I'm GONNA start making time even if it's an hour on the weekends just to unleash and have some fun. It was thinking about the new color. Duty Everybody's saying is great but I'd be playing it on the PC. I do not like the consoles. Haven't got I can't get the power. I can't figure them out. It's the power to for. I mean when I like I said I go between a vastly one to the other. I'm now back on my. Ps Four. And I'm on my ps four. Because it's easy and I can you know it's just the controller. I like having the say. You can put the controller. Pc Games. But I'm I just don't like sitting at a. I don't like sitting in front of my pc as much as I used to. I like to be my living room sitting in front of the TV with a cup of you know jury with a cup of coffee or a soda and not have to worry about spilling your desk. Your desk I'm still that old school kind of guy and back in the day. I had a gaming computer desk and then the work desk right. I don't have that anymore. Everything's on the same desk so I think that also kind of move me away from playing. Pc BASED GAME. The kids have no idea. I always like using that term being being over fifty. I can say that now but the kids have no idea in the day gaming. Would we're playing Doom Duke? Nukem castlerock Stein what does the other? Rot Rosina Triad Rise of the triad. Yeah when we were. We were playing on a fourteen inch monitor. That was that the graphics were even even at fourteen inch monitor. Looked like then till you went out and you bought yourself a Voodoo Three D.

"So Casey off Mike. You said something interesting about that while we were playing. What's your take? Well I just said it. Sounds like every other bagpipe competition. I've ever heard my life and I said because of that drone right right. Yeah this is the the the the the elements are just really. There's really no way around it hard to escape it and I feel like I should just be watching like a parade and a movie where something's going on. People are glaring at each other. May that's right. And then Mel Gibson is in the background going exactly so something like like that does happen. This is another Tarantino moment if we if we ever managed to get that sound Q.. As he hits the shore he stops playing the bagpipes a he throws throws them somewhere probably tucks him behind his back. I don't know and he jumps out of the boat. He lobs grenades at the German forces. He draws his his freaking garage sort screens and then runs into the battle. Yeah ironically this was known as operation archery. He didn't seem to employ his His Ninja Silent Bo Skills and this one you wanted to go straight into the fray and I mean it really was kind kind of almost like a kamikaze mission you know. He was just blasting his way into the. You know the the fray without any sense of self preservation at all. It's really the screaming you know. I mean good. Lord Image here is very very visceral. And we're not exaggerating because it turns out. There's actually some film footage that you can find of the raid and then of Jack himself playing his bagpipes Ondeck after the whole Shebang very fact. Let's let's just play. I know we're Clip Heavy v this episode of You guys want to hear this. I loved it. Yeah as all look back to shaw the tell-tale fires blaze a victory message. That never can be told or written victory with a capital. It'll be and one that will be recorded indelibly and all history the intrepid Bagpiper who led the commandos in battle. Donald now leads them in advance of joy. It's a well earned diversion. They see a deck of cards and a friendly game or restful sleep all right okay. So here's what's this propaganda video. It's definitely worth your time to watch you. Some of you. Perfect strangers fans in the audience may have caught the freeze dance of joy. You can see the soldiers there I would say for for the era. What they're doing? Is You know you could call that getting down there getting down. Yeah what they're actually doing is Dancing a highland fling which is a very popular dance In Scottish culture. Do you lock elbows around in a circle. Lot of fancy footwork Famously portrayed in the highlander films yes I'm I'm kidding not really but In the franchise. I think it's it's a subtext. It may well be. Yeah there can only be one highland fling. We also know that this is crazy semi suicidal action earned. Churchill the military cross He did have another close call and another semi serious injury during this time but it was at the it was at the party after the battle. It's funny there's An article that we've been inciting They put the word demolition expert in quotes Because apparently a during this party When when Jack was drinking a bottle of wine this demolition quotation fingers expert accidentally set off a charge? I I wonder if he was drunkenly showing off or something a whole by Beer Maura bragging bragging about his His expertise and yeah that bottle of wine got got exploded did and shards of it were lodged in his forehead. But I mean as we know it's GonNa take a lot more than a few wine shards in the skull to To to get old Jack Act down so he was back to piping and slicing and you now are cheering Very quickly by nineteen forty three. He was in Italy for another campaign. Arching archery impose sound fun. Yeah I don't know though eating bowman he could be. I don't know I think it would be arch. Arch are cheering. Our CH- doesn't matter in arduous right. I don't mean we're going to have to look this up but now let's move forward. Well just make up a fun makeup of fun phrase describing describing that and and give us your pitch so yes you're correct in nineteen forty three. He is back on the road seeking blood and treasure. You're in the Great War. He has a reputation for being crazy at this point. There's no other way to say it. He is incredibly bellicose bellicose and aggressive. He is known for going on unofficial raids and counter attacks. I think something just got his dander up or his blood up and he would he would literally go through his crew or the people who are around him he would say things like you know you you you come with me. So we would pick a few soldiers is that he thought had grits and a willingness to die and these practices continue even when he becomes a commanding commanding officer Leading commandos in. This is where we get the iconic image of Mad Jack. He's got his broadsword around his waist. He's got his long bow and he's got arrows. He's carrying the bagpipes. Still and people who serve with him start to see him as an icon you know he is like a a superhero to that word gets around when you charge screaming into battle brandishing. A broad sword when that is very much the knack monistic weapon in those times. And like he's the he's the he's the crazy nut that that shoots Nazis with arrows. You know I mean like really the reputation absolutely preceded him so let's pause there. Let's make this as a matter of fact part one of the story of Mad Jack I like the idea of holding him for a moment beyond beyond time just this image of a real life superhero a source of inspiration as something that that rallied elite. People just seeing this guy on the battlefield probably kept some people going you know. Oh absolutely I mean he he didn't. It wasn't the kind of madness you know cause people to not WANNA be around. It was the kind of madness that would rally other people around his absolute courage and bravado and just he was a real character. Turn as we are going to hear much more about in part to well. Germans didn't WANNA be around. No Germans didn't want to be around him but he wanted to be around them and give them a good slice which they clearly had come in. So what exactly happened to Matt. Jack what did he tell his followers to scream on the battlefield and what are the other Tarantino moments of his strange bloody career. Oh there's going to be quite a few my friends and you'll find out when you the tune in for our next episode in the meantime huge. Thanks super producer. Casey pegged Alex Williams who composed our theme research associate Gabe Luger for hipping S.. Two this incredible story of blood treasure and bravado big big thanks of course do Christopher Haas.

"So here's the thing. Osborn actually was pretty surprised because there was attack at University College Dr who tried the same thing and he saw all these results in advance we have been doing experiments self and so he tried to. You know explain them and logic them out and came up with a couple of different theoretical. Oh explanations and then actually published the material in different journals right yeah The professor didn't believe the technician either but he said okay. Let's team up. Let's let's experiment with this. So here's what they did. They did. Just what we described at the top of the show. They took one glass of water at ninety five degrees Fahrenheit and and they took another glass of boiling water and they put them both in a freezer. And then they said well By golly by Gosh by gum that hotter wanted turn to ice At a faster rate so in nineteen sixty nine they publish a paper on this experiment in physics education and the name of the paper is A. This'll be great for everyone who has to reload scientific journals. The title of this paper is simply cool with a question mark. It's cool to be kind perico. Yeah and then. It's like a lesson on how to believe students to So this result has been replicated numerous numerous times plot according to a great article wired. What's up with that? MMA Pemba effect. The thing is the Pemba effect doesn't always appear to work and it depends on the relative temperatures of the two liquids so Kudos the Osborne for saying this amazing quote. He says surprising questions are fun. They're not to be despised. One piece that's to my credit is that I did not despise I went off and researched. Hi Five man. I feel like I'm like watching the end of Mr Holland's open or What's a what's a standing deliver? Jaws Jaaz Police Academy before the hits about reaching hearts and minds exactly So where where did the part the real part at the end of of Mr Holland's opus or this Mr Mr Hall. Gop Size version of the story when Pemba gets his do by having the effect in question named after him. Yeah Yeah it's when He. He published that paper in sixty nine with Dr Osborne he was at this time. Pemba was studying at the College of African wildlife have management but he never gave up his fascination with Pemba effect. And how cool is it to have an effect named after you especially because he has so many close calls it could have been the bacon effected acted right the Kerr effect the aristotle effect. I mean let's be honest. He did the least amount of work. The pen bone up Hembo. Yeah he I mean he's rewarded for his tenacity and standing up and asking the question but then you know there was a lot of parallel thinking that went into this but I do think it's Kinda cute that he got his name attached to it and it's great great. He got a lot of you know he dealt with a lot of a lot of bullying and a lot of mean treatment from these crappy kids and he got to have his. I told you so moment but he also seemed like a good kid and I doubt if he He exercised said moment. You know what I mean. Yeah I have a quick question for the audience to Casey. Don't get mad at me for asking this. If there was a peg room affect what with a peg rem effect be Sir. I think you get first response. To this. The peg rem effect it would be to pop up for a few seconds at a time. I'm in a podcast in in receive an out size portion of attention for said brief interjections. Well Honestly Casey who is in fact the case that sort of how you do at parties you know from affect you sort of pop in make a big impression. And then your ghost out like Kaiser Suze. Hey that's that's yeah that's the George Costanza way you'll even one more yellow. Even more on their job is baby. Hope is okay so now we get to call this the science hack part of the PODCAST. Yeah can we get a sound Q.. KC something that makes us sound scientifically minded and like we are wearing white lab comes perhaps perhaps some chamber music or whatever. Yeah I like I like whatever this is because it's great and curated by hand by Subaru Casey Pecker. which is this one of my favorite trust falls in cast because Casey always kills it So yeah it turns out that we still don't know we just know what everybody is agreed. Recall this thing and like you said earlier. KNOLL scientists have come up with a bunch of different explanations but none of them are one hundred percents solving having the case the Moose straightforward explanation is this and it's the idea that hot water evaporates more than cold water so when boiling water cools down. It's losing a little bit of its mass because it's turning to steam right if floats away and then if that that is the case then hot water freezes faster than cold water just because there's less of it the same way that like a couple of water would freeze faster than say a swimming pool so that sounds like a works right that that sounds like it's a an elegant answer to the question or is it because there's a problem with this his theory remember not all of them are one hundred percent. What what's the problem with this one? Yeah I mean you know there are There is a math that Shows that this evaporation principle is in fact a thing. But that only accounts for part of this supposed- Pemba Affect And there have to be other things at play right. I mean the Pemba He well let's give them a little credit here he did. You know I I sort of gave him a hard time In in the fashion of some of these Tanzanian Indian schoolboys. And boy boy feel like he'll shamed it myself now but he did do some testing himself right and he measured the mass Lost to evaporation operation in that experiment. he found that it wasn't quite enough to explain the observable effects right that the the The hot water froze quicker than the cold water. So there's a lot of other ideas and play or at least a few that are super important. One is the dissolved gases actually changed water's freezing. Point two or the the surrounding environment of the water could actually have an effect on the outcome. Right yeah those both makes sense and in some cases there one hundred percent the explanation. The problem is that most those explanations only apply in in a limited set of cases and one other plots was here and now that we've now that we built up the Pemba fact in the story Rasima estimate Pemba We should go ahead and in throw in a turn you see. Some scientists aren't even convinced them Pemba effect Israel and knowing right. Yeah th- really throws a wrench into our whole thesis here. Yeah we were pretty deep into the episode now to drop that one. Yes yes. It's true so the thing about the paper cool. That payment Osborne published is that it has these very extreme differences in freezing using time between hot water and cold water and literally. No one has been able to recreate those specific differences. Sense as a really great line to to that Eh. For me sums up you know science and it just says Science is always complicated. I would tend to agree with that a- and then the thing is there are so many different factors that contribute to different results in the sixties experiments And this this effect that it's almost impossible to measure them all. Oh I guess. Isn't that sort of The deal it's tough. There are a lot of variables at play And of course you know. Scientists at the edge of research can be he's somewhat oppositional and passionate and they want to argue back and forth to find the correct answer. There was a paper in two thousand sixteen by Henry Bridge Paul Linden. That's right twenty 2016. That's how recent this debate remains The Lindenberg will writing for the University of Cambridge. And they said there is quote no evidence to support meaningful observations of the Pemba effect. They think it's misleading. They think we're misinterpreting. They think the Pemba fact is a red inhering and that there are just slight inaccuracies and measurements. That's the thing. What are we measuring when we say freezes faster? That's the issue we're talking about the time it takes to get to The the freezing point or the time it takes for it to become completely frozen over and there's different Timeframes where these things can happen. And right yeah absolutely. If you froze two things in a in a freezer even if it was two glasses of water the same exact temperature wouldn't they potentially not go go through the same exact process at the same exact time. Couldn't have to do with the particulars zone that they're in in the freezer. Maybe there's colder spots or something. I'm again no science expert here but it does occur to me that in my fridge for example if I have something closer to the back of the fridge. It's going to even freeze a little bit in the refrigerator and then stuff. Closer Ocean Front doesn't so there's definitely variations in temperature and what would be a consumer fridge. which is what he was using for his original experiment when he originally early observed this phenomenon? Right yeah I think that's a good. I think that's a really good point. It's strange because his very difficult to measure this for for instance in that paper where they argue. There's no such thing as the Pemba affect the scientists say there's a ten percent inaccuracy when you measure the height of a thermometer when you're taking the water's temperature and that could trick someone into thinking that they have observed this effect just for the record. That papers argument is he's still pretty controversial and many many scientists say okay. Let's not let's not throw out the baby with the Pemba water. It's still. It's still very difficult. And that's why my Pemba effect experiments even if you do one your own house or at your own secret underground laboratory That's why you may find different results from one experiment to the next. Here's the kicker even when procedures are repeated with with with what appears to be the exact exact same conditions. That's tough you know. And then people argue over definitions just like you're bringing up. No this like when we say something freezes faster are we saying the time it just reaches the first freezing point the time when it completely freezes. I mean what a what a what are we talking about.

"Great uniter. What important thing catoon? It's tempting. Maybe to think she was exceptional or You know the word that were around the West as a tomboy but we have to remember that given the nature of the society there was some gender equality. When it came to horsemanship women would ride horses just as well as the dudes and everybody everybody at least had some proficiency with a bow and Arrow? That's right if I'm not mistaken even back in Genesis Day There were female warriors. It was kind kind of A bit of an equal playing field at least on the battlefield As far as gender was concerned. Isn't that right More so than one would see in western Europe. I just remember being kind of amazed by that or surprised by that fact because you think of Gingas. Kahn is being this Iron fisted super macho kind of You know the dictator almost but He really did kind of see. The big picture in terms of everyone has something to contribute at least when it comes to fighting right right. He was there's still a real pill as as it would say in Tennessee but he was a pillow about different things. We also have another famous figure. Who shows up who a little bit closer to the story than than good old Jenga's which is what they probably called him? Good Old Jhangvi. And that is this the dumbest way I thought. Thought of introducing this. I I hope you play along with it. And that character is Marco Polo. You tell because I'm closer to the microfiche out of water is that what does that what happens then. Is that when you get out of the pool and Ashtrays sneak out of the pool. Okay what are the actual rules of Marco Polo so Marco Marco Polo blindfolded into pool. Game Well it depends on how much you trust the Your playmates there. If you don't trust them the wraps around their head but otherwise supposed to keep their eyes closed. They're wandering around the pool. And they go Marco when they say Marco people were hiding from them have to say Polo and then you write us a simple simple as that. I use the ECHO location. Well there's some of the rules. There's fish out of water if they do that. Then the if they catch you getting out of the water than your automatically Marco for that in your stoned unto death basically right. You had a more intense pool culture than I did. We usually just switched sides at that point. Yeah I grew up in a weird Mennonite Colt really. It sounds like you grew up in a fundamentalist sect somewhere in Kandahar and stoning people to death. You know it takes all kinds and Ed's Marco Polo was just the kind of guy for this story. You know he's the famous Venetian traveller. There's lots of stuff about him. That's kind of Embellished say confederated. There's actually a Netflix series about him. That I've heard good things about did you see I did I did I am because of some of the research in fiction Jn do outside of the works of I. I really enjoy studying the story of Eurasia and Central Asian those explorations so pull games aside Marco Polo Actually is the main source That we have main primary source that we have on Catoon because he In his travels encountered her and wrote and was quite taken by her and I believe she actually features pretty prominently into the Netflix series. But he wrote this about her wish we found on ancient origins dot net. He referred to her as quote so well made in all her limbs and and so tall and strongly built that she might almost be taken for a giant tests and that she was so strong that there was no young man in the whole kingdom kingdom.

Thirty nine angle worms. What is what is an angle were what are they look like? What's their what's their? I'm assuming they are angular. We go here like a right thing. There are right angle and obtuse angle now just regular worms pretty pretty underwhelming angling. Yeah just looks like an earthworm to me. I'm pulling up with as well And I would raw if I had to do something like this again which I don't and I don't condone it. I know we have some teachers and children in listening to this show. Kids fill listening. No one here is condoning swallowing. Live goldfish don't do it now and I'm also sorry I told you begin to suck. We're we have made our peace. We have mayor piece but we have also seen the tide turn on Goldfish gulping because people people also did their own spins on on the goldfish phenomenon. There was for instance A college student back at Harvard who decided to instead of swallowing knowing fish. Kiss them in kissed one hundred and thirty three fish. It was kind of like a childish prank but the tide eventually turned the sun eventually set on the practice of eating goldfish while they were still alive and it had something to do with a bill that we mentioned by senator. George CRAP FAA You know the preserving the fish from cruel want and consumption and then this predecessor to like a a ethical treatment of animals organization came into play Animal Rescue Legion and the President of Boston's Animal League even threatened legal action right like that several things going against may they really did as they should have an additional really quick side. Just want to point out that on Amazon you can get angle worm Fishing Bait kind of lures. Sort of like You know rubber or whatever and the brand or the name of the Model I guess companies call Berkeley. You'll never believe what it's called them. It's called Gulp exclamation mark That's what you at the fish to do. I guess it is well Boston's Adema League. They said that if you are caught hot swallowing goldfish on campus you will be arrested Interesting if if the campus officials don't step in and stop this SA- goldfish swallowing following went underground with cockfighting or fight by all that stuff yet additionally the US public health service that Goldfish may contain tapeworms or harbor disease. I would hope so these guys have it coming. And so we see the demise of the era the end of the age of swallowing doing goldfish but low through Winnington.
