Mail in Ballots Could Determine Outcome of PA Primary
"Who's going if you had to bet your house right now? Who's going to be the Republican nominee for the Pennsylvania Senate seat? Oh boy, we go from brown's playoff eyes to an even harder question. What I want to know, I don't mean to duck your question, but literally what we are trying to figure out this morning is how many mail in ballots need to be counted. And my answer depends on when we can get that question answered. Because McCormick has been leading mehmet Oz in the mail in ballots by about 9 points. So there's the potential there if there's enough of them that he could overtake on that. But we're trying to nail down how many there are. And there's a great idea. What's the minimum number of them that are out there, do you think? So what we think is what, in terms of yesterday morning, we got to count from the state in terms of returned Republican mail in ballots. And as of right now, there are about 20,000 fewer of those counted than there were returned as of yesterday. So I think it's reasonable that there's about 20,000 of those.

Americans Likely to Boycott Companies They Disagree With
"I'll tell you this, Americans are so over it. There was a poll that just came out conducted with Trafalgar and the convention of states action in which they found that the overwhelming majority of Americans from all political backgrounds say that they're likely to boycott companies, they disagree with, which is an indicator that regardless of what side a company chooses to take, it's kind of a losing battle for companies. I mean, why get into this? In the first place, Disney, right? At least Netflix is figuring that out. I told you yesterday about how Netflix, which by the way, is a stock to watch because it's gotten beaten down so much. But Netflix is common to the realization that, hey, we got to serve our customers. And if our employees don't like it, too bad. And so it's important to offer a diversity of product. It's important to stay out of politics.

'Do Not Burn This Country' With Dave Rubin
"Do not burn this country, everybody. That is the sequel. Is that fair to say? It is the sequel, and I have to say this is quite an excellent book. Now that I'm really diving into it here, this is you actually get a chance to read amazing. By Dave Rubin, the first book was don't burn this book. Now the question is did anyone actually try to burn the book? Well, we had people that tried to digitally burn it. Oh, is that right? The freak sun Reddit and those Internet weirdos that coordinate to ruin Amazon reviews and things like that. That's what I would call a digital book burning. I don't know that anyone that was out there. Like actually burning the book. But now it's don't burn in the country, which is surviving and thriving in our woke dystopia by Dave Rubin. We're going to spend the whole hour talking about this and just kind of some news of the day stuff. But let's just dive right into it. Tell us, kind of what's in this book? What's the argument you're making? Well, the argument is we're running out of time, and we better figure out what to do here. This is something that you and I have talked about for a long time, Charlie, and on the inscription. Is this the one that I wrote to you? I will even read it to the audience because I know how happy you are about this. One of the great things about this inscription right over here, this is the book that I sent Charlie a couple of weeks ago in the book came out. I wrote Charlie. Okay, fine. You were right. I did become a conservative, because years ago, we were sitting in a car after an event, I think we did at the university of Berkeley, where antifa showed up and people were yelling and pulling fire alarms, and we're very, very scary, and we were also with that very scary Candace Owens. She told people out. And we're in the car after the event. And you know, we're talking about free speech. We actually disagreed on some stuff on stage, but they didn't care. They just want to yell you yell at you and shut you down and the whole thing. And we were in the car on the way back on to dinner and you said, Dave, you will be a conservative one day. And I didn't really push back that hard because I could see the road. The road was being laid right in front of me. I could see it. Now, we can all whittle down the argument of what exactly is a conservative. That doesn't really matter, and the beauty of, I would say, what sort of is happening on this new right as some people are calling it, is that you can agree to disagree on some stuff. And even if the show I did in Phoenix last night at the improv that you opened for, we got into it with the crowd because I play with the crowd a lot. And people do disagree on things. People have disagreements, even when it comes to something like abortion. And yet can still all call themselves conservatives. That's a beautiful thing. So this book really is about, well, look, the woke have destroyed an awful lot, right? I mean, if you look at what's gone on in these last 5 years, the woke have decimated all of our institutions, education institutions, cultural institutions, entertainment, just institutions, corporate institutions, et cetera. So you have to acknowledge that and as my friend Jordan Peter would say, Peterson would say, you have to give the devil his due man, we may not like what they're doing, but they have done it, and you have to actually say, wow, they did something. And that's important to acknowledge, otherwise you can't fight against
It's Better to Count Ballots as They Come In
"We're able to get results so quickly North Carolina is they are counting ballots or the counting votes during the course of the day as they come in Florida does the same thing I think it's a very very good process Pennsylvania does not Pennsylvania waits till voting is over to start counting Now when I was a young guy 1314 years old work in the precincts For my candidates and my party I remember all this And they would sit down both parties and the judge of elections was all very simple and well done We actually did a machines They weren't really electronic machines I guess in some ways they were but you would flip the switches It wasn't software They would actually indent the role of paper whatever it was behind it So they were in effect paper ballots but done in a different way And it worked very very well And at the end of the day when we ended voting at 8 at night I was always there 6 in the morning late at night We had we had our numbers And they were called into the state and that was that With everybody watching nothing complicated No drop boxes not massive amount of early voting There was no early voting As I recall None And the absentee ballots and everybody seemed to be fine then the Democrats destroyed the whole damn thing

Amber Athey: Same Story if Trump-Endorsed Candidates Win or Lose
"Primary elections huge Of course amber they want to make everything about Trump but I mean he does it get involved in this cycle He doesn't make it about himself but he chooses Some candidates who run for office and win George W. Bush He kind of stays out generally of the process He's done a few events for camp but he isn't like really dig in Donald Trump said you know what I'm not done man I'm jumping in and I'll endorse who I want when I won You know what Good for him But there's a lot on the line for him He threw a lot of his weight behind mehmet Oz in Pennsylvania And that's not just it You got Madison Cawthorn in a really hot congressional race in North Carolina will know about today and Ted Budd in the Senate race in North Carolina too So yeah these candidates have a lot on the line but a lot for Trump for Trump too Definitely And there's always this narrative that emerges after a Trump endorsed race finishes up and if he happens to have that candidate lose all of a sudden it's proof that Trump has lost his power and the Republican Party and he's not the kingmaker anymore But if you win then you get the opposite article that's talking about how the GOP is a bunch of Trump cultists So it's really impossible for him to win Even if he wins he loses In this case It's so wrong I'm really curious about the Pennsylvania race because this candidate Cathy Barnett has had a really late surge in the polls and is apparently neck and neck with Doctor Oz and Dave McCormick So I think that's the one to watch I have a couple of friends down in North Carolina right now working with Ted bud and it looks like he's going to just run away with this thing So I'll give you my eyes on Pennsylvania right now for sure

Tucker Carlson: Biden Is Likely to Use Racial Wounds to Inflame Agenda
"I wanted to play a chunk of his monologue from last night to let people who may not watch Tucker Carlson here him sort of explain what has been unfolding and to respond in his own words. Biden still has time to change course and fix it, he could try to improve the lives of voters who are dissatisfied with him. That is entirely possible. That's a politicians typically do when they're down. They listen to the people who might reelect them. But Biden doesn't plan to do that, and we know for a fact because Politico has reported it. Instead, Biden has decided to attack people who disapprove. According to political quote, Biden has taken to telling his aides that he no longer recognizes the GOP, which he now views as an existential threat to the nation's democracy. People who disagree with Joe Biden, according to Joe Biden, are now a quote existential threat to the nation, like Al-Qaeda, or climate change. A threat that by definition is so profound we must declare war upon it if we're to survive. Now, keep in mind, this threat that Biden is referring to is you. He's talking about his fellow Americans. No president has ever spoken like this ever. Joe Biden does it regularly. And he's certain to do it again tomorrow. But most painful and destructive at all, Biden is likely to use racial wounds in order to make his point. There is no behavior worse than this. All race politics is bad, no matter what flavor those politics happen to be. No race politics is better than any other. All of it is poison.

Actor Scott Baio Joins Dinesh to Talk About the Politics of Hollywood
"Scott welcome, we were talking a moment ago just before the podcast about California and about Florida. And you were saying how you're spending a little more time in Florida. Of course, Debbie and I are refugees from California now in Texas. Talk a little bit about the way in which, I mean, California is the most beautiful state in the nation in my opinion. Just because of the enormous just variety of the state from the north to the beaches and the south, but talk about the different mood in California as opposed to, as opposed to say Florida. Well, did I say I agree with you? California Southern California, in my opinion, is one of the once was one of the most beautiful parts in the world. In terms of everything, whether a beach is mountains, just stunning and in my, you know, I've been here a long time, and I've seen it devolve into just an absolute cesspool and it's unfortunate because I always get confused by people that vote the same way and expect a different result. But we spent a lot of time in Florida. My wife and my daughter and myself, we love it down there. And I know you're in Texas and I am we are kind of trying to get to Florida, what our daughter goes to a wonderful school and she has a ton of Friends, so it ain't easy. You know what I mean? There's a lot of moving parts and I have family here. And I've been here since 19 76. I mean, this is my home who came out of New York right from Brooklyn to here. But.

Laguna Woods Shooter Was a China Communists Sympathizer
"Details on the California church shooting Sunday have now come up. Turns out it's a chai calm sympathizer. That's right. A fan of the Chinese Communist Party went and shot up the Geneva Presbyterian Church in laguna Woods. He also brought explosives. It could have been far worse than the one dead and 5 wounded. Doctor John Chang, a physician, is a hero. He ran at him, it took a bullet, doctor Cheng died, but sufficiently disturbed the killer that the other parishioners, including the pastor, were able to hit him with chairs, knock him down, tie him up, take his two guns and not allow him to shut off the explosives.

"Senator ben downing who is running to be the democratic candidate for governor senator downing welcome back to radio boston thanks abby. So i'm going to start with a question that i have asked every candidate who's joined us. That is what makes you now in twenty twenty one better than anyone else to be governor now and to run the commonwealth so i i bring a state wide perspective and coalition to the race. I grew up in pittsfield represented back community and fifty one other communities in western massachusetts. I know the unique challenges and opportunities that are gateway cities and the rural regions of this state face but have also raised a family for the last four years here in east boston and know the challenges that this immigrant community deals with every single day around housing round transportation in any number of other issues. And i think to be ineffective governor. You need to be able to see both those perspectives. Bring them together and be able to to tap into the potential that exists in all three hundred fifty cities and towns in this massachusetts so keenum many parts of your platform Like funding childcare reducing.

"That people weather most are still writing today but the This is the kind of thing my family read. So when i started writing. I didn't write thrillers. I wrote all kinds of genres and explored a lot of them in sort of came. Full circle back to thriller. Because it's the jonah. I read the most. And i really do love the thriller genre. I when gone girl came out that was that created a whole new sub-genre of what we call domestic miller domestic suspense I think of that genre as a genre where none of the main characters are law enforcement. So you don't have detectives chasing serial killer or cia agent or fbi aging or profiler. Or what have you and It created an opening at least for me to write thrillers. Because i'm not in law enforcement. And i don't have that kind of expertise and i wouldn't try to take it. I would have to do immense amount of research to be able to write a main character. That was a detective So that i don't think my lovely wife. My first novel would have happened without bond girl. It's only been published. And i might not have even thought writing it. It's not worth the whole genre. Cume after gone with the girl on the train and mary because books and just a whole flood of mainly female writers which is great though so many wonderful female thriller and suspense writers. Now that were not out there before. Definitely yes Can you actually tell me a little bit more about your book. My lovely wife. Because i heard of that one I just had not picked up to read it yet. But it's i know that it's in production right now for something amazon. It's very exciting. My lovely wife. Yes that is about a couple who has been married for fifteen years.

"Like i said. I've got a great team in america and in europe that are putting together my tour so as soon as it's safe for everybody to do it on both sides the coming and going side are going to be there but unfortunately i don't have exact date for you but if i were to guess i would say maybe some time around this time next year in. I'll still be playing this record for everybody. And i'm not gonna skip over because playing this new stuff live is just been such a such a thrill and a leave america in the rest of the world out. So i'm gonna guesstimate middle of next year. And i mentioned that at the end of the video for the song whose name i which the name i butchered You've got a quick cameo there from from jason. Becker and jason's story continues to amazing. I know he had a setback recently but he came back from that as well. Obviously you're still in touch with them and you know just just remarkable story. I mean i. I've emailed them from time to time. It's just incredible the perseverance. I mean he really does sum up. Don't give up. And i wonder when you look back at those records you made with jason when you did cacophony what what are you. What are you hear when you hear those records now. Too young guys like that starting out their career. These do you do you. Do you think you listen to that. And you think of the the growth of where you've gone or is there something about it when you listen to it. Imagine it takes you back to that time. What are you hearing those records now. I don't really go back and listen up stuff. I did in the past too much. But if i were to go back and listen to it. I'm sure there would be a lot of ideas that i think are kind of Primitive versions of what i'm doing now. i was much more of a limited vocabulary back then but i always even before then. had good ideas and Presenting those ideas takes maturity to present them in a way that their affective in the time of cacophony. My idea presenting ideas was just here. It is listening to this But dumb when you do that you miss out on the opportunity of really giving good ideas a great picture frame to make those ideas look even better sound even better so there's probably a lot of really cool ideas a little lot of good. Germs of ideas But as x each album progresses. I definitely Progressed in how to really give people ghost bumps and give myself does chills and those you know the spine tingling moment so But i think this stuff still stuff to be proud of what those records and it was. Great to see jason at was seventeen when we did that stuff and he just he spurted like in growth like like an absolute genius like he had a past life or something. It's like where did he get this growth from. It was just such an amazing. I grow a little by little. But he like from the first cacophony record of the second one. It was like he grew ten years and in there and it was probably less than a year between the records so Watching him just blossom was a wonderful thing to remember. Yeah yeah well listen man. It's always great to visit with you. I'll let you get some sleep. I know you're you're coming up on four in the morning or something there.

"For new faces and new variety new new funny things to latch onto And so like. I said they'll try anything and But to actually do something for a long time. I really don't know of hardly anybody There's a couple of people like i said Like i just mentioned but Yeah it's it's an interesting place and there's somebody weird angles to every single thing here that if you have an interest in japan and you're willing to really really go crazy working hard You could probably do some interesting things here. Make a living or not that. I can't promise you but there's a lot of interesting things to do here right. I'll try to find the link to the dock and send it to. You might find it. Interesting i would. Yeah let's talk about your album. The latest album tokyo jukebox three which is obviously the third of these series of records. That that you've made tell me about this. And i want to talk to you specifically about an i before you came on the air. I butchered the name of the song and video. I want to say. I'm richard again. I love hearing every everybody says the title's different by love to hear it okay. I'm gonna try to alter it a little bit. Because i know i was wrong the first time but i'm going to say make an aide close in. What is it tell me the name of it is mocking ida. Which means don't give up or don't lose or you know it's just a very encouraging thing. Yeah and the video is is awesome. You've got some young kids in there playing with you and then at the end there seems like there's a bunch of fans that pop up and then i was really happy at the very end. Speaking of don't give up in that theme to see your old bandmate. Jason becker make a quick cameo there at the end as well which was wonderful to see talk little bit about tokyo jukebox. Three and for people who aren't familiar with the previous two records. Give him the vibe of this record because it's a little bit of a mix of a lot of things right. Well yeah but it still sounds like it could be any one of my solo records. Because i basically destroyed everything. I just put everything into a meat grinder and just destroyed it. I destroy all of my favorite songs. Put it that way. I put it. It took a bunch of my favorite songs and I kept the essence of the songs. Parts that i really loved the parts that were very important of the songs. The parts of the songs that You can't have the songs without. I kept the essence of those things. And then i just marty is did and Marty is the hell out of it and on this tokyo jukebox three There was kind of an overall theme to try to get really. Adrenaline is kind of relate encouraging uplifting type of sound type of music. That gives you power when you feel like you're about to faint or about to give up The reason for that is I wrote that. I made the album with athletics in mind. I'm not only for the olympics but for the tokyo marathon had been playing the opening ceremony for the tokyo marathons for the last four years and every time i play a really well known japanese song or two and these are also from my previous tokyo jukebox albums and then the record company said well. Now you're confirmed to do the marathon again. Why don't you think as some new songs to play and then And then we'll do an album of it in a that's great to know like ainhoa. If things go even better we might get lucky and get a place in the olympics. You know what i mean. So i was all about that and so during production coverted started to happen and it didn't stop my record but it stopped the tokyo marathon but ducts. The concept was all in place. I really wanted. You know how it is when you're working out when you're running or when you're doing anything that takes a lot of stamina sometimes certain songs. I'm sure a lot of songs that you play. Especially in the hard and heavy. John rather really exciting upbeat powerful stuff. That just gives you the tangles when you need to run I wanted to keep my whole record like that. Because i didn't know which songs i was gonna use for the marathon and who knows maybe some one at songs could be used in the olympics. I wanted to whole thing to be just like adrenaline. Just full on adrenalin and so that was my concepts for the record and then You know when cove happened. A lot of things cancel. But i started to feel that while i was making the music. It was very cathartic to me to make this really feel good music during this time. When you know the beginning it was really really scary because people were dying. Nobody knew what was going on. Everything was getting cancelled. It still of course gary now but we're all used to were numb to it but at the time when i was recording the record. I'm like this is like super cathartic. I'm making this really positive type of thing happens trying to do something positive. And it was working for me in a really I think it's my favorite album as far as my records that i made that really make you feel kind of uplifted in that. That was the go on the record and kinda ties into the song that that you were talking about because if you know don't give up is such a cliche and it's a really boring cliche but man is boring cliches. That are like coming alive these days so i really really wanted a song that kind of encompass that feeling in that was what that song is. You know this. But alice. Cooper actually did a song called. Don't give up during the pandemic putting out the same message and actually activated his fans to do something where they show up in the video holding up signs like that so he almost four my after my video. I think it might have been before more. At least i saw it before. I got and it's on his new record. But you know you. You diligent in japanese obviously different song and he did the same sort of approach but obviously in english. Well listen. we're all you know in the same boat and myself and any other artists any other musicians regardless of even whether you like those people are not. We're all doing the same exact thing we're all just trying to entertain. People were able to make music and as fans we know the joy we get from music so for able to give that to people. That's what we're able to do so like if it's a common message. I wouldn't be surprised if other people are doing very similar things and who knows if i was the first..

"That's about the size of it. Everything else is is really pretty much normal over here. You mentioned the show you did do with an orchestra so you said you shot that. I'm imagining plans for that. To come out at some point. actually You can see some of that on my social media right now on my facebook. There's a there's a digest of the orchestra concert in Actually just before talking. You is Looking through some of the new edits of of that and we did a full show. And there's like fifteen minutes or so that there on my facebook that you can check out if you like a just a big thrill and a wonderful you know capping off of my tour because You know not a lot of people wanna take those risks. You know there's financial risks and there's health risks if you're the one who you know if you're show was responsible for some kind of new breakout of big numbers rising from someone that was that your show. That's a real downer over year so Takes a lot of balls on a lot of people's you know took a lot of guts for some people to take the risk but the fans all showed up and they followed every regulation and it was all great and We found some of the other shows the non orchestra shows to hopefully those. We'll see the way day sometimes for people that aren't aware of your story and you've been on with me a few times but you you move to japan. As he said about seventeen years ago you speak japanese fluently and in addition to music. You do a lot of other things there. Your your tv celebrity. You've done a bunch of stuff so when you play and tore in that country are you are you of imagine. You're viewed there as way more than just the former guy from megadeath like you're on your looked at in a whole different light there. Are you not because of all the other things you've done. Can you touch on that. Like the way you're perceived by people in japan and now they've you. It's very interesting. Because japan has so many different outlets where i've had my finger in so many pies that tom. You really don't know what the person knows me from. So if i go out and someone comes up to me and talks to me. They'll say oh. I saw you in this in this. Tv show your great in this show. Or i really liked this thing. You did or like the commercial you did or i have a fan of yours. I have all your albums or stuff. all different things and some people who know me from one thing have no idea of my musical history and some people who do know of my musical history. Think it's absolutely crazy and funny that i'm doing variety television programs and and i've been in a couple of movies and some commercials for a long time and and A lot of tv stuff that you wouldn't expect someone who's grown up in heavy metal to do and so that kind of those people kind of get a kick out of it and A lot of people don't know my entire story because it's so incredibly spread out which is absolutely fine for me because you know it heart. You know i'm a music but the doing other things in it and it really brings. New people into my music never never discovered my music before so. My audiences are really strange demographic. You know there's a lot of girls. There's lot of older people. There's younger people their families. And then there's diehard metal fans and then there's people who would be your definite listeners. There's just everybody on there and It's really kinda neat because I think To be known for just one thing at least in my case might be a little bit limiting Just a lot of stuff. That i wanna do. Of course. music is the main thing that i want everything to funnel into. But i think all the other stuff that i do actually gives me more life experience to draw upon and Just running into different situations debt. Don't just happen. In recording. touring recording and touring so. I'm just very thankful for the opportunities that i've been able to have over here and it's just really funny. Sometimes you know when people come up to me and they don't know really what my real real gig is and It's it's as long as you like anything that i've done even if you don't like if you've heard it and you're interested in and whatever. I'm still impressed by that. So it's a good thing you know. I saw documentary. And i think it was on netflix. Recently and it was about the the way. Americans are perceived in japan and how people can go there who have no talent at and i'm not saying this. Is you know you have a ton of talent but there are people that go there. Who who seek celebrity and because they're from america if they can come up with some quirky thing like they've tried so hard in the us to become popular and then they'll have this idea for just some gimmick or something they do and they go to japan and they've agents that will actually sign them up and work with them to try to make them famous in japan where they couldn't become famous anywhere else just because they're american and they came up with something that really resonated with the japanese people that they found amusing it was. I don't know if you heard or saw that doc but it's really fascinating. This kid just moves from california and they they talk about a few other people that just go there and they go to this agency and they okay. So what can you do to make me famous. And this agency will work with them. Because they're american to try to make them famous in japan. This sounds like it's very very possible. thing about this is This is one great thing about japan. Which i love They will throw anything up to the wall and see if it sticks. They will try anything anything. And what what you say. I don't know the story. I don't know the dopp but what what probably happens. In few cases is something will be quirky and funny and interesting and we'll find a spot on tv program once or twice or a couple of times and that's it And you know and and that's very interesting and.

You're willing something when you can get outdoors whether these days. Yeah we're going to talk about the project here in a second but last thing. Do you still have the golf course you. You had your on course. D did you sell it or have moved on moved on and and back in the saddle again is Aristotle once said well backward. We want you playing guitar playing that flying v and killing it on that way. Amy bar i gotta tell you man. I speak in a smile on my face. I was when i heard the one song. I've heard so far from the record which came out here in the us a couple of weeks ago. Hellfire thunderbolt eight just brought a huge smile to my face because it was exactly what people love you for and what they love priest four and what we were hoping to get from you and it just reminded me of maybe even own with something that could have been on painkiller. It was just so so great. Now i before we talk specifically about the record coming out. Here's something that i was thinking about. So you've been on with me a couple of times as you started to make your way back into metal and it was very important to you. Was it not to actually lead with new music versus going out and doing nothing but nostalgia an old priest. I know you did that to kind of get things going for a couple of shows but for you making a new record and statement of new music seemed to be very important. Can you talk about that. Yeah absolutely. I think You know wouldn't average and you're really because It just seemed to be an automatic thing you know to make a record And it was kind of a weird rich. Everybody probably knows did a couple of token appearances. You know the contradict wet you know spent so many years hanging around waiting for call from the other guys thinking that that was always happened. But you know Like that never was. So i just wanted to kind of move on you know and obviously not ripper again. You know you even before last. I'm thinking you know this is something that really needs to happen. Because you know I really think up something really good to offer and obviously to to to be able to do things in my own kind of why without any other restrictions or anything of freedom So i just sat down utah and he was january. Pretty much just after christmas and Within four weeks side the michio pretty much the whole album. We didn't four weeks. You know outlined in roughly mode and i'm thinking yes. There's an album there. You know and then i was able to go full pels. And he's all came together really really quickly and And so essentially the record is pretty much been made for quite some time. You know when the code is really the game you know trying to gasoline pedal just with the file mixing of things off. Oh well you know there's no particular rush you know so. And then i made a definite decision on offensive fed up with all of this now the record as i want to hear it. So that's the process. We're going through right now. Correct me if i'm wrong. I was thinking about this the other day. And you know. I've been a fan pretty much since the beginning. This is this the first thing you've ever done outside of priest because all your decades priest to my knowledge you didn't really even guest on other people's records i know glenn made some solo records. Is this the first music you've ever made outside of judas priest. It is at the as because.

"Xm each and every day for rock. Talk if you're in the us or canada of course always bringing you some great interviews and some great content each and every thursday and this week is certainly no exception This week we have. For u k k downing former guitarist of judas priest talking about his new band cake as priests. The first track from that band has been released and that is hellfire thunderbolt which is out now full album and tour coming soon as well second interview a guitar hero from the marty friedman best known for his work on many classic megadeath albums. Marty has lived in japan for a long time where he is a very successful career as a musician tv host in japan he speaks japan japanese fluently and has put out a new album tokyo jukebox. I believe it's volume three and instrumental guitar records. So it's great to visit with marty our very international this week on the podcast. We've got mardi joining us. Live or at the time. Live from tokyo and k. k. Joining us from his home in england now k. Talks about will start with k. k. And he talks about his feelings about priests his issues about priest. How we'd like to have been back in the band given that. They're celebrating a fiftieth anniversary tour. Clearly that is not happening. So he's going about business with his own band as we mentioned called cake as priest. So have that going on with k. K. and since this interview was done priest has announced a more extensive tour for their fiftieth anniversary. What's interesting though is priests continues to show glenn tipton in the ads for their tour. We know glenn did not do much. Very little of touring last time priests played. we know. unfortunately glenn continues to battle parkinson's we certainly hope he's okay. We also know. It's probably highly unlikely. Glenn is a part of the next leg of priests touring and if he is it would be an very reduced role like he was before but they continue judas priest in their press release for their tour continues to picture glenn and also does not say in the press. Release if andy. Sleep will continue to sub for glenn tipton when the band plays live. So we're not entirely sure who the second guitar player. Next to richie. Faulkner is going to be when priests plays given the fact that the ad shows glenn tipton who be wonderful if he could do it but it's highly unlikely he can't and the press release does not mention if they are going to continue using andy sleep now. Andy sleep was doing it. More in a fill in role helping out the last time around and is by trade predominantly a record producer and had made comments saying he kind of really needs to stay with producing to keep that under his world going. But we also know. Andy loves judas priest and probably loves doing that gig as well so it's just a bit unclear because priests hasn't said who else is playing second guitar with them for the bulk of their live shows. I guess we'll find out when they start up. Or when they do interviews more interviews to promote the tour as going to go about his business. As you're about to hear he made a record. Tim ripper owens singing. It's going to go out and play some shows as well also interview number two. Like i said marty friedman and he's talking about his new record and life in japan and more so that's all coming up for. You will start with k. k. We'll go to marty if you're a regular listener of the sirius xm show. I mentioned that. I saw in advance of the first part of the coming kiss documentary. I would go back and listen on the app to the trunk nation. Show on sirius. Xm on tuesday where. I broke down the kiss documentary in it Here on the podcast in a nutshell. I'll tell you the first part that i saw as very good ace and peter do not participate with new interviews. There are new interviews with jean paul producers. Eddie kramer. Bob azran. Very well done. If you're a hardcore fan. There isn't anything in it. You probably didn't know already but there's still some cool stuff in there to check out and i'm sure you will enjoy it. A lot of there is a weird moment in it where they reference the peter. Chris would not let them use the song bath in the documentary so that's a bit awkward and uncomfortable and also the most shocking thing about the time line in it is that they completely jump from destroyer to dynasty and never go through making rock and roll over love gun or alive to thought that was really really strange given that those records when we're in kiss kiss the biggest band in the world at that time so that was a really interesting and bizarre move. I thought to to not even mention that period. But that's how the time line of it goes. It's a lot about the early days. It's a lot about wicked lester. Leading up to them breaking with alive and then it from there after destroying just kind of jumps to dynasty and the wheels coming off and really the big question is going to be part. Two which i haven't seen yet. A lot of fans are hoping they do a lot with the eighties period of the band. The non makeup era. I can't say because. I haven't seen it my senses. It's going to be about the early eighties. Them taking off the makeup touching on the mtv era and then probably quickly jumping to the reunion with ace and peter the wheels coming off of that and then a big hard sell to what they're doing now which let's be honest. They always like to sell what they're doing now. And that is continuing to tour. So there that's my prediction on the second part. But i haven't seen the second part. The first part i did see and it was very well done. However no ace and peter. No new interviews. You hear them voice over from old interviews. And it's very much and paul story and built around their story and their narrative as you would expect. Tommy and eric are in it in part one but talking about kiss from a fan standpoint because of course they were both fans before they were in the band. So that's coming to a. And i think it's june twenty seven and twenty eight more of the recap on my tuesday's show on volume and i'll tell you about part two when i do have a chance to see it. Okay let's get to our guests on the podcast this week. K k downing starts up marty. Friedman finishes it up. That's next eddie. Trunk back with you first up as promised downing here. He is on the trunk..

"Needed to be emplaced. Fight it that. After all was joe the biggest gathering london has seen in weeks and one of the most. The pace of the story had been forced in other words. The government had to do something and fast bursts. Johnson's instinct more than one source. Put it to me was that this was a second front opening in a year battles. If domus main general against covid one number ten official says the manera was the obvious choice to take charge of the cultural front. She and the pm agreed. It was essential to respond quickly and to show that the government crossed the scale of popular feeling but equally. Boris johnson was deeply shocked angered by the attacks on his hero. Winston churchill about whom he had written a bestselling biography. Jail is a perfect example of someone who embodies all good of biting on the right side of history against hitler thumb fat. He's weeks and the way. He used his privilege power at influence to cause on twelve misery and atrocities on non white nations. The lawyer and racial equality activist doctor. Shola mark shock. Bamboo in a bbc news report on junior twenty twenty. The statue churchill in parliament square had been vandalized during a protest with the words is a racist spray painted below the wartime leaders name. The prime minister manera mirza were of the same mind. The voters might put up with the statue of a little nine slave trader lockheed with colston being torn down in fact plenty of them would go along with it but the master of the electric will draw the line at a full scale attack on churchill. See no obvious connection between the hideous police murder of a black man in minneapolis and the hatred of the left for prime minister. Who had stood fought against hitler. The statue of winston churchill. Who is a national hero has had to be boarded-up for fear of violent attack. And that to me is both absurd and andrew. They've already made hundreds of arrests. In in the last few few june the fifteenth boris johnson was ready to announce the outline of the plan would be a commission on racial injustice. But it would be more than an exercise in self flagellation or stamp on all the main principles of critical race theory. Johnson was determined to weigh up the progress that had been made on racial injustice against the work. That still clearly to be done and things really are changing. And you're seeing young young kids now doing better in some of the most difficult subjects in school Than they were ever before you'll see more going to top universities. We need to start tending that story. There was never any question in the pm's mind that the commission should be set up by minerva mercer and david lamey the shadow justice secretary who had colds with her. In two thousand seventeen own review into racial inequality in the criminal. Justice system was particularly unimpressed. It's cleared this was dreamed up yesterday on the back of a fag packet. The boris is just beginning to get over the detail of these successive reviews. But this is another data racks signs that what we need is action. What we need is well. And it's not clear frankly that he and some of his advisors really believe this stuff. Because i haven't really moved on it for months and that's not just my review. Many reviews suddenly manet ramirez name was being mentioned daily news bulletins and on the homepage of new sites precisely the opposite of how she in dougie professional parade away from the limelight on june seventeenth. The pm was even put on the spot about her. Revolutionary communist passed in the commons. The scottish nationalist. Mp martin dr hughes the muni meals from the pages of the shredder nitsa dine letting marxism the revolutionary communist party into the heart of number. Ten has not gone unnoticed. Mr speaker on a monday. The minister appointed them to lead the commission. The government's commission for racial inequality and it was agreed that some disbelief given their well-known. Use them out so under mr speaker to kind of prime minister tells today does he agree with music. That previous inquiries have fostered a culture of grievance within minority communities. Mr speaker i. I am a huge power of doctrinaire mazza. Who is a brilliant thinker about these issues and a we are certainly going to proceed with a new integration across governmental commission to look at racism. Discrimination and after parliamentary questions came the protests in the street. That's the activist iman eytan on june the twentieth at a rally in central london calling for the head of the number ten policy unit to be sacked. Probably the first time that somebody holding that particular office has been named in such a way by an angry crowd at a public protest as one friend of the couple puts it. I think it was beginning to dawn on near in dougie what they and especially she had got themselves into who's very intense and it will shake up anyone but in the end only made him more determined in july post. Tony seal the educational consultant. Who had previously chedda. Boris johnson education inquiry. When he was mayor of london was named as head of the commission race and ethnic disparities what we already know. He's there has been a lot of work done in this area. And so what we want to do. Really's get a focus on this. We particularly wants to look at the race. Ethnic disparities unit could make sure that we now move to some sort of action on that but essentially it is. It is an exercise in trying. On the stand. In the government's along the side their matches behind maybe some of the recent protests and was so beginning to get a grip as seal in his fellow commissioners got to work number ten braced for the second wave of the virus and then plunged into a period of serious internal political turbulence which culminated in the departure. November of dominic cummings and his chief lieutenant the downing street director of communications lee kane but even as the kent variant of the virus swept across the land. The culture was continued for start. All of a doubt in the culture secretary breached the hitherto sacred arm's length principle in the art sector warning museums and galleries that he expected them to abide by the governments retain explained position which is to say keeping statues or artifacts in place but providing watson all historical material to provide context. Where necessary. so. I do worry that there is this. This culture going on at the moment looking back on shame on our history. It's of course there are. There are mixed stories but we should celebrate that strength. And i send him this message out very clearly. Twelve cultural institutions. Of course. they should be talking about that history. And i always say keep stuff in place. Keep your monuments in place newscenter. Explain is street. don't hide it away week..

"The high court battle to release. Npr's expenses and stuart bell the labour. M p middlesboro here in the studio strict bell. Just as your hair before we get onto the question of what was revealed. Do you think you should do one thing that no. Mp's had the courage to do today and just simply apologize for the morass. David cameron's the was that. This was a matter of public ethics and trust rather than the precise letter of the parliamentary rules which were as it turned out amazingly flexible so someone had to deal with each case and tell those conservative. mp's who are filling the news pages. What was acceptable in what wasn't and to twist sufficiently to make sure the money was repaid a tricky job. Who you gonna call dougie the ghostbuster of course in this case the sleaze buster with painstaking care and just the right level of silken menace. Dougie smith did the rounds of the. Mp's in question explaining to them case by case exactly what had to be done to clear the air according to a senior member of cameron's shadow cabinet at the time. Nobody else could have carried it off. Nobody else had all the information in his head. The reputation the right mixture of charm and scariness. This is the heart of the matter today. If you ask. Even the most senior members of boris johnson scum. Exactly what dougie smith puzzle even what his job title is. They don't know beyond the fact that he as at the highest level between party h q number ten. What they do. Grasp is how useful is if a member of the public is going to appear in a party political broadcast and needs to be checked out. Dougie gets a caller and check them out. If a candidate for public position needs to be quietly vetted he is the point. Man if someone seavy has suspicious gaps he hits the phone scour social media going back years and does the due diligence thoroughly above all if you want to seat if you have ambitions to pursue a career in conserved parliamentary politics. You have to get on the right side of dougie smith as a senior member of the party. Machine puts it look if duckie has a role model. It's probably lyndon johnson who said that the first rule of politics is to learn how to count. I mean he knows who's a cool who to visit who to pressure how to secure the necessary local votes for almost two decades. He has a quad unparalleled knowledge. Of who runs tory constituency associations. Not just the chairman the vice chairman the counselors in the parish weather makers who can make or break a candidates chance in a winnable seat which brings us to his greatest trump today. Good evening and welcome to the bbc news at six from downing street where boris johnson has promised to repay the trust of voters after leading the conservatives to an extraordinary election victory an eight hundred seat majority the first really solid tory. Victory since nineteen eighty-seven and labor's worst result since one thousand nine hundred five. Not a bad night's work as one very senior source puts it dominic. Cummings likes people to think he was the person who won the two thousand and nineteen general election. But that's bollocks other than boris though to people who really matted one was isaac la vida who ran strategy. He's gone now. And the other was dougie. It was essential to boris johnson. That he get himself a new house of commons as soon as possible. One completely unlike the two thousand and seventeen to nineteen cohort that had finished off. Theresa may and the brexit was. He needed a majority of biddable. Ps and dougie. Smith was the man to fix it while manila emirs was closely involved with during the election. Manifesto husband was busily trying to turn the divided conservative parliamentary party into the united. Boris party in wantage david johnston a comprehensive educated briggs a tier and social mobility was installed a successor impeach. The arch romania. Who's now in the lord's. The seat of devices in wiltshire was sorted for danny kruger. The prime minister's political secretary. Fellow tony and vote me comrade as for andrew griffith the pm's chief business advisor whose london house was used as johnson's leadership campaign headquarters. Well he going nicely to the constituency of arundel and south downs. As i had time and again it sure does help to have more new side. Conversely if he blacklisted you well forget about that. Career as tory impe and future minister and sometimes the candidates don't even know that they're being helped. That's how discrete. All these operations are dougie. Smith doesn't care whether the media knows that he fixed things for boris johnson. He cast boris. Johnson knows so there in early. Twenty twenty was prime minister johnson on top of the world with brexit. Finally done planning to build on his conquest of labour's and red wall with a huge program of leveling out when suddenly from this evening imus gave the british people a very simple instruction. You must stay at home. The pm announces the first national lockdown. Normal politics stops in its tracks and most of the government's big plans to weaponize. its big commons majority. I put on hold. Cummings was always going to be point. Man on covid says one downing street source and the next election was probably four years away. The truth is that wasn't a vast amount for manure and dougie to do in the early stages of the crisis except hang on in there and hope that when the pandemic ended they would still be valued another number ten eight puts it thus does rampant at this point and his crew of firt. Leave cronies with using up most of the brain power number ten look for one of the policy unit onto manera would be a bit of a shell. You know very much the second eleven but others say that. This isn't the whole story. Johnson had learned to rely upon manera at city hall as much more than an adviser on culture and education. She was as the pm himself. Put it a powerful nonsense detector unfailingly civil but equally unfailing in her intolerance of bs and the prime minister has to sift through plenty of that more than one downing street staff told me that johnson would often run key decisions connected to the pandemic pastor. Someone who is not involved with the day to day decision making on covid but whom he absolutely trusted it was in the first months of the pandemic that i realized that manila is really traditional policy. Chief says one cabinet minister shinzo archimedes or boris whisper. She's that important. It helps a lot that she got on with kerry simmons and that she in dougie were regarded by the prime minister and his fiancee is totally loyal. And unlike dominic cummings totally uninterested in publicity but that was about to change in the most unexpected fashion the pace of the story forced by a horror on the other side of the atlantic. Now turning to the breaking news warning violent protests continuing across the country people taking to the streets demanding justice for george. Floyd was the story that stopped the world in its tracks. The murder of george. Floyd many apple is police. On may the twenty fifth two thousand and twenty captured on phone video a horrifically modern lynching of a forty six year old black man in police custody seen by billions on their screens in downing street. All energies were focused on the unwinding of the first national lockdown. And what would turn out to be the disaster of the tests trace and isolate system. Not everyone so how important the george floyd murder was immediately says one minister. Boris since it would be huge. He was still convalescing from his own. Bout with covert and watching a lot of news got it. The other person who sends what was coming was manera. This was far from the first case of a black person being killed by. Us police but this time it had taken place during a pandemic when all the world was in a state of partial paralysis confined to their homes by the virus in this country. As in the us the mood was pretty feeble to all of which made for powerful political chemistry as one downing street source puts it suddenly there were protests and rallies all over the world black lives matter was a lot more than a slogan or hashtag now. The statue of edward colston was chuck into the harbor in bristol. It was impossible to do nothing. Manera already knew that she wanted to use a fair chunk of time in downing street addressing. The questions raised by density. Politics husband was less exercise by the detail critical race theory or skill scholarly arguments about systemic racism. But he understood that if cultural had to be ford than the right people.

"So after Stevens conviction was quashed. What was they police reaction? When the conviction was quashed obviously the police will laugh with the Dilemmas oppose where. The person who they believe. Was the killer Stephen. That spent all those years in prison and although the Court of Appeal didn't say he was innocent. Obviously there was no doubt to say that his conviction was unsafe so what they did was review the whole murder inquiry under the title of Operation Noble which ran for several months reviewing the witnesses forensic evidence and trying to conclude whether any suspects could be responsible for the murder and at the present time this report that they did has not been released in the public domain so very difficult to conclude what their findings were in detail however what has been released is that they are not seeking any of the suspects and have no other suspects that they wished to interview unless further evidence is forthcoming the case will remain unsolved after the conclusion of Operation Noble. The question remains who killed when they say. Well yes. That's an interesting question. Don Hale gave a number of suspects who he thought maybe responsible Lincoln them to Wendy Sewell. Which clearly the police may have looked at and concluded that the there's no further lines of inquiry as we've said however. Chris Clark More recently. Who's an author of Crime? Books has come up with a an opinion that it may well be a serial killer who was responsible with no connections whatsoever with bike will so. I think the next person that we need to see is Chris Clark and perhaps include that in our next episode should also mention that Stephen Down in his just published a book. The title of which is the case of Stephen Downing the worst miscarriage of justice in British history. This book is available on Amazon..

"Hi Christine would you like me to quit? Chrissy I'm more used to your used to be called Chrissy and we're just GONNA have a little chat today about the immense impact. Stephen been arrested charged and then convicted of the murder of Wendy Sewell. How would you be at the time? I was fourteen when it happened. And Steven was seventy s right here and have you any more siblings. No that's just the two of us and you lived in Bakewell with your mom and dad that I saw on the day that Stephen was arrested. Where we we use still at school I was at school. I came home at normal time around for Clark and when I got home mom just briefly told me that something had gone off in the cemetery that somebody being injured and that Steve was helping the place within queries that You know he's the one that had found her. So that's what we knew at the time so no cause for alarm at that time no not at all. I mean we just thought well. He's gone back to work founder. That contacted the police. So he's the obvious one to held them of course. And when did you realize that there was something else going on? I think it was quite later in the evening. My Dad kept contacting the police and saying come we see Steven do we need to get him a solicitor and they just kept saying. Oh no he's only helping with inquiries it'd be with you certain so it was a bit of confusion really because the police telling us one thing and when you've never had any involvement with the plea she believe what they say and if they say someone just helping with inquiries then you believe it and I- memories of that that time vivid quite vivid yes and when Stephen was charged. How did that change the face of the family if you like? I think he just in total shock. Because you're not expecting it. You don't know what to do. You've never been in that situation before and there's nobody support in year explaining what's happening in telling you what the next move is so you just sort of in limbo in a way and part of your family's just been torn apart from you? Did you see any time before his trial? Oh we're not allowed. Yes we used to go visit him. But the visits were very brief. I think when he was on remand the Ronnie something. I don't know if there were fifteen thirty minutes or something like that so you didn't really get a lot of time to spend with him and then when it came to this trial which was February nine thousand nine hundred seventy four. Yeah did you go to the trial? We were at the core but we weren't allowed in because with Steve Coming home and speak into moment lunchtime. She was called as a witness. So that meant that. We weren't allowed to go into court either so again. We didn't know what was going off the only time we were allowed in to hear the verdict. How we fail in when the verdict was read out totally shocked because when we left the previous day we've had journalists from local newspapers. Ask us to bring photographs the next day. Because they said he's bound to get off is going to be acquitted. Of course that's what we were expecting. And when they came back with the guilty verdict we would just totally bewildered and gobsmacked and the moment that. How did you mom and dad coat? I don't know it's not one of them things that we really talked about. Mehmood with every we supported each other. But it's not something that we we discussed. We were all just in shock and have it your mom and dad cope with the time that Steve when was in prison. Fortunate Lu both very strong characters and that helped me as well and hopefully it helps. Steve never lost faith. The never doubted him so I grew up with that same belief. There was no way. Did we ever once thing Steve was guilty. You know it was just a case of being strong for him as well and Free Chiluba and what efforts were made to try and keep Stevens case in his situation in the public arena. That worked quite long hours but when he wasn't working it got his nose in statements or anything else to do the case. Just going over it and over it in case there was anything that would missed and looking at other options of what could have happened. How things could have occurred anything that you could think of that but might throw some light on things and eventually they approach Don Hale who was the editor of the matlock mercury. The did not many years later after would received an anonymous letter. Somebody saying that they were there that day. And I'm not sure if that contacted the police about it. I didn't want to know. So that's when he went to see or wrong Don Hale and he agreed to speak with them. Was that many years after the conviction. Oh Yes maybe twenty years later and then once Don Hale started to to look at. The matter was the things that started to happen. Did he get back in the newspapers? We most local interest. Es initially I don't think dumb for the was anything to it till he started reading a bit more about it. The history of what had happened and then people would start getting in touch with him because he printed something in the newspaper about this letter. Arriving and then other people would get in. Touch was just sort of so much support all of a sudden. It brought it back to people's minds and the very supportive. I think were quite a few people. That didn't want done to investigate. And I think he had. Some threats made me more determined because he thought if people threatening him and trying to stop him. Then there's something to it and the campaign. The done hail spearheaded that resulted in matter. Go into the criminal. Cases Review Commission did yes and subsequently to the Court of Appeal. Yes Stephen was released on bail pending their Pale. Ucs and presumably came home during that time. Yes Sir yeah. Did you go to the Court of Appeal? Yes yeah we were all that. And how did you feel when they cost us? Conviction Feingold unsafe delighted and shopped. Because we've had so many occasions where we thought things were going well and another last hurdle something went wrong so we even though we knew that there was a good chance that it could get the conviction quashed. You don't take anything for granted because you just let me self down then so you know it was just sitting there through all this legal jog and this to be going on forever and ever and not really understand it. Then all of a sudden they just conviction quashed and I just looked. People sat with some people from the BBC and excited. You sort expect so much sort of almost party atmosphere and it would just conviction quashed and that was it. Got To the judges walked out. Stephen walked out on that day and how we parents once Stephen have been released new people I mean I think there was just such a weight. Lifted off them because all those years of fighting and trying to get somebody to listen and all of a sudden. Somebody has lessened. Unfortunately Stephen and yourself to spend some time before your parents passed away. That's Ri- that's got two that's got to have been a relief it was. It's a shame that they couldn't have had longer together but I'm just grateful that they did get some time together. It's it's different Perot's been on the outside looking in. So how. How do you think that prison lifers affected Stephen Benefited or to his detriment? Probably a mixture of both. Because if he hadn't been in prison we don't know what his life would have been. It could have been married. It could have had a family. It could have gone on to have an entirely different career bought on the other hand. It's benefited in a lot of ways. Because he's learned skills that you wouldn't have had had not been there and I think in some ways probably made him a stronger person.

"Stevens conviction was quashed. What were the grounds that they conviction was fantastic and safe? The two main areas the code of appeal addressed was the admissions made by Steven at the police station followed by a forensic scientists who gave evidence in respect of the blood splatter on his clothing so in relation to the admissions. It's fair to say that Stephen wasn't vulnerable young man. He got a reading age of an eleven year old. It'd been held at the police station for. I think an excessive nine hours. He got no access to legal advice. it wasn't allowed to see his parents or any other adult and it's under those circumstances that he gave his up missions and he admitted that he'd assaulted. Wendy with the pickaxe handle. Yes that's right at that time. In nine hundred seventy three. There was no safeguards for these people that would protect the vulnerable adult in a police station and Stephen as long as a as well as many other people made admissions because they were pressures is probably the wrong word to use in a an unfamiliar environment for many hours without any support which then made vulnerability men on suggest ability as you say. M people did make admissions. Two things that they haven't done potentially hadn't dom which was one of the main areas that the court of appeal addressed in that judgment. There is the forensic evidence at that time. The forensic scientist gave strong evidence supporting the prosecution or conviction of Steven because he said it was a textbook case of blitz brought to the clothing worn by purse committed the assault on. Wendy but also was looked at safe. We just consider the second Graham than they forensic evidence so the evidence that Norman lead the forensic scientist gave to the caught in the original. Trial was actually quite damning. He suggested that only the person who assaulted when they would have been wearing those clothes. And obviously it was close with Stevens close so that was That was really dumb into to his case wasn't too and then and that is the area that they reviewed in the Court of Appeal and they came to an alternative to that damning indictment that Mr Lee came to well the heard from other forensic scientists who dispute the fact that it was a textbook case. Then there was an area of doubt a net full. Not Necessarily Stephen was the merge rebel when he went to the scene and soul Wendi. It could've received splattering from assist in as he described it as opposed to be in the murder and that was the gray area that they allow the appeal on as well as the interview in the confession made at the police station. Yes so it does make you wonder how Stevens family coped. During the time that he was in he was in prison because it was in prison for twenty seven years. Yes when he was convicted is sister. Chrissy was only a young girl when she was fourteen. Fourteen so not only got one son who seventeen years of age imprisoned for the rest of his life for many many years to calm had a fourteen year old to look after an also with bake will be in a very small community. The stigma of the fat by some Christie's broader admitted somebody the. Yeah that's that's right and it is a very close knit community and you can imagine that. The stigma is attached to Stephen being found guilty. Not just a murder of murdering a local woman as well. The both Steven's parents are dead now. Huntley now it must have been quite traumatic for indeed. It was a traumatic event that they've gone through and it just doesn't just end. Once Stevens convicted it it lasted for the twenty seven years that it was still in prison. But they were still ramifications. After he was he was released. Because as you've talked about the stigma through the stigma stays on. I think when we're looking at alternatives to who potentially could have assaulted Wendy that resulted in her death. There are still people in Baykal locals. Who still think that Steven was responsible. And from WHAT INFORMATION WE'VE Found Sofa the clearly is. Lots of speculation. Bike was to who committed the murder Stephen. Some sale the people responsible dumb hails enquiries obviously if uncovered that area that Although there's no conclusions is is obviously a lot of talk about in the in the town where Stevens family lived at that time isn't it? I think it's fair to say that there is some superposition and as to who attacked Wedneday. And I think they're all people local people who still think it was Stephen as Don Hale and the like who think that it was a local man known to her and then there is a former police intelligence officer and an author Chris Clark and he believes that it was a serial killer and a convicted serial killer..
