Thank you very much. Thank you for having me Howie. Good well, you know and it's funny because we just talked about the English coast, but we've moved a little further to the West and talk. Talk about a different region of the coast than we did on the show recently when we talked about Suffolk and the the downs. Why should someone go to Plymouth Plymouth? Actually it's a fantastic city. It's a city that goes amazing maritime history and tradition that dates right back to the medieval times, but actress quite often overloaded when people think of cities in England. They think oh of Lunden Bama again. Manchester Liverpool perhaps. I think Plymouth is just as much. Interest is end if those cities, but it's just north of us so much, and I think particular twenty American. Listeners interested is also the city where the pilgrim father set sail on the mayflower. Sixteen twenty associated with the traditional thanksgiving. S Pre interesting point. Is also surrounded by beautiful coastline. It's right on the border of the county's of Devon and Cornwall these are two of the most popular tourist destinations in the UK down in the South West of England, said Scott lost offer. Willing we're looking for dividend cornwall if we go down to the English map and you go far bottom left. That's where we are, and if you go further bottom further left from there, you end up in the ocean. So we're. Right on the south coast of Devon Oklahoma so are literally facing out to the Atlantic okay well and facing out towards the south. Yes, excellent well, what? Are. You GonNa. Recommend Fourth Festival is obviously starting in the city centre, so the city is actually pretty much based around the coast and its large harbours, so I would say starting day Sutton Haba, which is the main harbor in the city and that so where the city spreads out from I'm from around the. You've all sorts of things to say side. You've got things like the mayflower steps. Steps, which is where there's the pilgrim fathers actually set sail from and this museum dedicated to that you've also got what's the Barbican? which is this old coupled street state specs, medieval periods, which is full of these is correct, slim pubs and bars, restaurants shops things like that, and it's one of the few passes cities. The city was actually bombed June. Sacramento War by the Nazis and the. The city was destroyed, and this is one of the well preserved areas of that city out, also recommend site just basically following the coastline of the city's known as Britain's Ocean City for good reason, because it will revolve around that and overlooking the area. What looks like is huge, fool trust, but what actually is actively operating? Royal Marines and Royal Navy base. That's right in the heart of. Of the city and they still have people that you can save people, training and things, and they actually do tours of that interestingly and I'm not sure how many military basis you can know many Abitur tour during the middle of the day. You can't do that well and it seems like one of the reasons they do that, too. Is You mentioned? This is not a new military base. Quite historical, so this is where the ships sailed out to fight the Spanish Armada for absolutely, and the city is very synonymous with Francis Drake. Who is the man who led the defeating of the Spanish the? He was from Plymouth. Things like the main shopping center in the city named optimus could drake circus, and you'll find lots of other places around the city named after him. You also have along. Along the Bob sell them this coupled medieval street. You have the Plymouth Gin distillery, which is actually the oldest gin distillery in the country, and of course you can go in then you can have tools that you can find out how the GIN is made. You can find out the botanic WHO's they use? Jin's at the end of that. So if you're GIN, Fan Pathak place to go we'll. Get into more detail on all these things. So in terms of the BARBICAN. For instance you mentioned the Plymouth Gin distillery. There are different pubs and things. Do you have a favorite pub? Is there someplace that we ought to check out? There is a place I feel bad commending it, but there's a web spins now Weber spins is a national chain across the country. If you live in the UK, you know about web of Spain's. They've actually got really nice bar that down on the Babacan. Babacan, which is right by the Plymouth Gin Distiller Selfish Nickel Jin from that, but they've got huge selection of our genes of a drinks there, but all the buildings there because they're all medieval style buildings that is then become ingrained within the actual itself garnered sovereignty. Highly recommend that this is places down the thyroid record. Think of any off the top of my head. Okay mix over a new kind of places and very traditional old pubs as well which great.

Deshaun Watson endorses Houston Texans' potential Antonio Brown pursuit, even if the franchise hasn't shown interest
"Brown now, so there was some videos of him working out with Russell Wilson earlier this offseason. We've seen Antonio Brown working out with Lamar Jackson. Now to the Texans, maybe have some interest. We know their quarterback DeShaun Watson looks interested. Shawn Watson responded to a tweet from former NFL wide receiver Chad Johnson. And what Shad Johnson tweeted a B to the Texans would like a prayer. Emoji link, I guess praying it happens. And this John Watson's tweet was basically a Mame of you know, Drake looking like, Really, I'm intrigued. I got intrigued type of look. Here's the reality. But the Texan sign Antonio Brown, then shame on Bill O'Brien. You cannot justify signing a bee in the same off season that you shipped away DeAndre Hopkins for nothing for David Johnson's contract in a second round pick, You cannot trade away the game's best wide receiver and then bring in a guy like Antonio Brown. Who is a locker room cancer. You can't do it. You can't justify it. Let's ignore the off the field stuff with a B and the suspension that's likely coming to the guy. Let's just talk about what he did the last year and 1/2. From alienating himself in Pittsburgh and missing a winner Go home Week 17 game. You then going to the Raiders and hurting himself by freezing his foot off. So then having an issue with the NFL helmet rule. To getting into with Mike. May I threatening to punch the guy? You secretly recording Jon Gruden. And then releasing a video after the Raiders finally released him and maybe be like I'm free. I'm free as it playing for the Raiders, making $15 million was, you know being kept in, you know. Unlivable conditions that Antonio Brown was in such a terrible life situation. He's finally free. That's what you get on the field, or, I guess technically off the field with the Raiders last year. We all know about the alleged crimes, and this guy has committed the lawsuit she's dealing with, so he's facing a suspension and you're the Texans and you're going to sign Antonio Brown Anthea traded away, arguably the game's best wide receiver. Who has never been and off the field malcontent who has always done the right thing in the Houston community, You can't sell Texans fans on Antonio Brown. If you traded away, DeAndre Hopkins, you just can't do it. Why would you trade away Hopkins to take a chance on Abie, who's facing a suspension? And we all know at some point Something's going to go wrong because it always goes wrong. For Antonio Brown. I mean, you cannot At any under any circumstance signed this guy. When everything we've heard from Bill O'Brien is he wants character guys, Bill O'Brien's cliche lines in every press conference. I've been out with him smart, dependable, reliable, tough football players. That's what we want. Antonio Brown is the opposite of every trade Bill O'Brien says he wants to be the biggest hypocrite. GM Bill O'Brien signs Antonio Brown. You can't do it. You just can't I don't care. Baby wants to play for nothing that sends the wrong message to the entire locker room. You traded DeAndre Hopkins. You gotta live with that. You deal with brains and cooks. You have will fuller Let's go figure it out. Yeah. Kenny Stills, Kiki cuties motivated to come back and play well in his third season. You made your bed now you gotta lie in it. Bring in Antonio Brown when there's going to be a condensed training camp. You think this guy's gonna follow social distancing guidelines? No shot Antonio Brown. We had every strip club in Houston by week three. It's called for what it is. He's the last guy the Texans need right now. That's the type of signing that alienated the entire locker room.
"drake" Discussed on Front Burner
"That underdog mentality kind of STOIC Nissen us, and also when eat our own mentality Though there was great pride in amazing, Canadian hip hop. There was also an indifference to it a hyper competitiveness among artisan and eagerness to be accepted stateside and by stateside. The of course was referring to the United States. States and screw faced or not, if there was one thing, most artists in Toronto could agree on it was that if you really wanted to take this hip hop thing seriously, you had to blow up south of the border I can to that point, the Toronto Artists who did just that in a major way in the early two thousands with Cardinal Fish. In. The early two thousands before Drake became the undisputed six, God Cardi was our guy and I know statement like that will make some Canadian hip hop fans Bristle, but when it came to repping Toronto in words in music and spirit before Drake Cardi was the man to beat. Actually three songs to help me make my case. The first one is called Bacardi Slang. Tweeden! mccurdy slang was one of the first rap records to explicitly some up a tiny bit of what it meant to be young black and Torontonian in early two thousands, and in the process it became a bona fide banger in the local clubs I mean as a Dj back then I clearly remember playing McCarty Slang and it being the first time I found myself having to rewind Toronto hip hop record and played again. But it wasn't just a local thing. The BACARDI slang video got love in the US. Thanks to be one. Oh, six in park, which was a huge deal back then. And in a way the song became the first local rap, record to export Toronto Slang to the world. Now second song without a doubt would have to be old time killing. Time killing with special because it really embodied the jazzy east coast boom bap sound. Toronto was known for in the nineties, but also it was all about the music video done by Toronto Zone director acts which was this fantastic owed to Jamaican dancehall culture, a culture that has always been a central part of Toronto's HIP HOP DNA? And I rest my case with my third song. Dangerous. Being on the radio around the time, Cardi released dangerous back in two thousand and I can tell you it was a time. I won't soon forget because while Cardi was always kind of seen as this artist pudding to run on his back after he dropped dangerous, it was hard not to see cardinal official as the undisputed face of Toronto hip hop. And it was all thanks to a saw that Qena him at pretty poignant moment in his career. It was a rough time man to be honest when it was made, it was rough time because like it was in between deals in between situation so I I remember calling calling home, and you know saying to my girlfriend at a time. Like what am I doing like Yo like? What is my life? I'm finished like. In but. We were recording. We were we were actually touring using Timberland's tour bus and he had a studio on the back. And you know there was this beat that Chemo sent me him don't kill what I believe. His name was hustle, but I was caught his dope. And I said to exit. Who was the engineer I said exit I needed to play this for acorn. So I went and I showered came back down onto the bus, and Khan was sitting there in the studio, and he's sitting there in this him and exit quieter is looking at me. And I said he'll exit. Did you play him the joint and conduct joint as like Yo Carnwath? Watch here this so he presses play and you know you hear to be. And I'm looking at car and he's like. Not, bad, and then I was. Ano-. So! was in the. Hotel, showering like literally heard, it knew it was a smash from jump and just. Like did the hook like I wasn't gone long in thirty minutes well. And then right away I just. Pen My things like in fifteen minutes to answer. Man Of. Audio this. TORONTO DJ in host mastermind was working for radio station in Calgary. Dangerous was released and I remember. Somebody in Calgary at my radio station, you know, said Oh, my God, that song is amazing and it kind of clicked as I holy, this might be bigger than just being Canadian record. You know what I mean, and I remember hearing the song being played on American stations. I remember listening Las Vegas Station and it was being played. I remember you're listening to a New York station and it was being Anneli. State and I'm like Oh my God. It's finally happening. Dangerous was without question. Carnell officials breakthrough moment in the US and around the world. But Cardi would quickly realize that the biggest moment of his career was being received in a completely different way back home. It wasn't a slow ascent. It was a massive thing that happened and I think within a month I was in top forty, not the hip hop category like the hot one hundred. And I literally was exploding around the entire planet, except in my own country, and like I saw them have to play catch-up. Seems to be doing very well everywhere else so I suppose we should probably support him now and that hurt. Because the first time I got signed to an American label first song the Hook said everybody knows it's the TITA. My whole narrative has been one that has taken. Might my country and put it on my shoulders, and I endured ridicule for years. And then when we had this moment, we didn't even celebrate here. Maturing schedule didn't change because the booking agents I guess selling millions around. The world didn't mean anything to them. Talk Radio like. You know the call I got I remember I was home for a day I still remember this brown couch. One of my favorite couches and I gotTA call somebody. Saying hey is Is Dangerous can con- for all you non-canadians? Cancun stands for captain, content and radio stations in Canada are required to play. Thirty five percent can't con- as like. Why are you asking me of dangerous as Canton? It's literally a number one hit around the world. Are you telling me you're only going to play if it's gone? Yea. Cardi's frustration wasn't just a reaction. To that one disappointing moment it was a frustration rooted in much deeper tensions tensions that existed between hip hop and Canada's music industry for a long long time. I think there was a commitment from the top at least for me. To really break urban music, but I don't think that that always trickles down to everyone else given. Barton was the head of urban music at Universal Music Canada from Nineteen, Ninety, seven, two, thousand and four. I record that we have Bacardi that were under universal umbrella and then doing money Jane Long Good. We walk into those meetings and people would be like, and can you remove reggae guy from the hook us with the Radio Promo? People telling us that in that medium being like no, we're not removing the REGGAE guy from the hook, and then two years later. That same guy goes on to be Sean Paul. II Cardi. We're destined to be starved and we saw that we watched him perform. He saw his record performing. We.

Women In Prison
"Today chatting to classrooms. He's the managing editor of the magazine, a new magazine that publishes poetry and articles by women in prison today. We're going to be chatting to her. About what life is like for women in Britain's prisons. How them into health is affected by being in prisons, and what life is like at the moment during the covert epidemic. So my interest is like mice, people, you know they're all mental health. Issues in my family have an aunt. WHO's diagnosed bipolar, so we sort of grew up with that. And then. I went to school with Ended up just in a lot of trouble with the criminal justice system and when she was released from. Last time she asked. If I would help and get involved with the which when I look at it I was just delighted to. Because it's really important, it's it's not just for women in prison for women who've got any contact with the criminal justice system, so they could be women on in the community all they could be The partners of men they could be NGOs or other people involved in the criminal justice system went lawyers. Judges actually subscribed to twos. Quite it's quite a broad abroad with limited reach. This is kind of broad question, but what is it is particularly about women how to how women specifically affected by being in the prison system coming out of the issues that they face specifically so I think when you look at. The. Number of women who all incarcerated who we send to present. You have mental health issues vomited vaguely report, but he are half ago and Init- initial justice admits that over eighty percent of women have mental health issues on those mental health issues not treated in women's Prisons Stats men's prisons. They're much lower and then women things. I and depression is compounded, because only one percent of children actually stay in the family home. If mother is sent to prison, I mean that's an alarming statistic, and we need to think about being Zion, if not knowing what's happening to your child in your home and everything. In a while you're in prison where it's remind is usually you know nine times out of ten, a mother, or assist O or upon who can pick up the pieces in the Gulf to the children, but for women very often. They don't have those networks especially when it comes to child care. And women have also leads upon leads of trauma an emotional abuse. Again enormous report that was commissioned by Theresa May. He says that over fifty percent of women. have been the victims of abuse. Emotional or sexual or domestic abuse? In their lives, and of course, imprisoning them white disc, compacting that trauma and adding Les- Upon it, and what about the mental? They received. We'll maybe don't receive. When are actually in prison will? What's really frightening? Is that judges put women in prison thinking that they will get mental health support because you know, there are these massive I mean really enormous mental health contracts over six hundred million pounds. A year is spent on health and mental health. They called the justice health contracts, so these are given to provide his including. National Health Service, foundation trust and private providers like. A and Really. Women just cannot access them they. For example at Drake Hotel which is the prison? In the Midlands is meant to be a fulltime psychologists in the time psychiatrist, I'm case paid to provide that service, but actually that has not been a full time. Psychiatrists death of a two years. They've just not been able to fill the role. And they'll get in training. US is or nasty to on. Day contracts who don't have any commitment to being in that position and that she looking off the the patient doodle is just it's just a job, so we are really concerned about mental health and women's specific health services like menopause connect like. A. Logical problems PAP, Smit's things like that and just not being done for him in prison
'Raising White Kids' Author On How White Parents Can Talk About Race
"Many African American parents have with their kids about how to avoid altercations with police or what to do and say if they're stopped, but the recent unrest sparked by anger over police brutality against black men. It got US thinking about the role that parents could play in talking to their kids about race, and about this moment in the special episode of Life Kit I talk with Jennifer Harvey, the author of raising white kids, bringing up children in a racially unjust America about how white and all non black parents in particular can talk to their children about concepts like privilege an ally ship. Jennifer Harvey is also a professor of religion. Drake University and she is with us now. Thank you so much for having me. You just actually wrote a piece for CNN.com title. How do I make sure I'm not raising the next amy? Cooper Amy Cooper being the white women in Central Park. Who has recently recorded calling the police on an African American man who just asked her to leash dog, which is in fact. Fact the law and you know invoking his race. Basically saying I'm going to tell the police that a black man is threatening me and i. want to read what you wrote you say most white parents of today have come up in families in which white silence was a pervasive norm in our socialization. These same parents are now passing such silence on to their kids. Could you talk a bit more about that? Sure so you know many white Americans today. We're raised in families. Where explicit racism was not what parents were trying now of course, some weight Americans were really such families. Many of us were raised in families that thought that they were teaching equality, but the way that they did that was to just say well. We're all equal and not say anything more explicit. About what does it mean when you believe everyone should be equal, but many members of our society do not experience equality and so. What happens is the racist culture that we live in Doctor Beverly Daniel tatum talks about it as smog. Our kids, our youth, we adults just breathing end, so we end up showing up in racist ways, even from when we come from families where equality was the presumed value. You say well. Here's what she wrote. You said that sometimes it sounds like everybody's. Everybody's equal. Sometimes. We white parents tell our kids be colorblind. Sometimes we even say celebrate diversity, and you say what we say this while failing to notice, we're expecting children to be magically immune from the same racism induced tensions that get in the way of white adults, successfully navigating diversity and sustaining interracial relationships I. Mean you say the consequence of that is? The silence you said kind of breeds what? It breeds a lack of capacity among white people to engage well in conversations about race to talk about and respond when racism is happening, so we literally develop not enough capacity to for example. Oh, I hear racism out on the street or from CO worker. Should I challenge it? What should I say about it? And then if I have friendships across racial lines if my African American colleagues or friends see me be silent because I don't know what to do. I become untrustworthy. Right so I. Think about this with children and youth. For example you. You asked about you know the talk. If my eleven year old, who is white, if I only ever say to her? Hey, police are safe. Go find one if you're in trouble, but her African American cousin who's thirteen is learning really complicated messages about the police because his parents have to teach him that. They can be great friends for a while, but eventually over time their friendship, the depth of it will erode because she my white child will not be able to identify with her African American, cousin, her African American friends, and so I have to teach my kids. We all white Americans have to teach our white kids. How do identify with that experience and? And how to be good friends to black and Brown use as they grow up, and that requires US teaching about them about racism, and it requires US teaching them and modeling anti-racism, which is something a lot of white Americans, really struggle with even when we think we want to, so let's talk some practical things here. Obviously, this has a very deep stem. So many more conversations that ensue, but Or shouldn't sue as you point out. Let's start the video like the one that just surfaced. Clearly, not the first, but it may be the first for some child right seeing what has emerged here at this African American man being pinned to the street, saying I can't breathe and calling for help, and the other officers standing around to you know some of them participating in one of them, just standing there. How do you discuss this? Do you wait for a child to come to you? Do you show it to the child and say this is something I need to talk about with you? So in in white families we cannot wait to about with our children, because segregation is so deep that if we just wait, it will never come up. Having said that I never show my video. My children videos of black people being killed by police I try not to watch those videos myself. I do talk about the videos with them. And I started doing that work with my own children before they even had words really I would make sure we were in spaces where we were engaged in anti police brutality vigils and organizing, and I knew they wouldn't exactly understand what was going on, but for example, my five year old one time after a rally we were at when we got in the car. She started saying black people are not safe and I said yes. That's true, and then she said. Why we're. We're white, so we are safe and I said. Yeah, that's true, too. And then I said to her and the reason we went to this rally to be with people is we're trying to tell the government? That's how you tell it to a five year old. We're trying to tell the government that everybody

Basically the events that are at the center of the book is a clash at sea in the Indian Ocean between pilot. Ship led by a very mysterious figure who would become the most notorious criminal in the world. A guy named Henry Avery and a much larger Indian treasure ship whose name was anglicized as the gun sway and the translation of that into English is excessive treasurer or exceeding treasure. So they were being pretty conspicuous with maiming. This vessel in terms of the of treasurer on board and effectively. These two ships confront each other on September eleven sixty ninety five by all rights. The pirate ship should have been easily overpowered but to incredibly unlikely things happen a cannon onboard board that Indian ship explodes because of some kind of malfunctioning design which basically turns cannon into a bomb when it explodes in so instantly. There's this you know. Many people on Indian ship killed the deck catches on fire. And at the same time. The first cannon fire from the pirate ship manages to have this incredibly lucky shot where they split the main mast of the Indian chip in two which effectively disables at in in the water and so the pirates are able to board the ship they pull off this heist that in today's currency we be would be worth as much as one hundred million dollars so it makes one of the most lucrative crime some in the history of crime and triggers a global crisis that reverberates around the world. Okay before we get to that crisis because you would wonder why one active piracy would do that. Just general picture of the piracy problem at that time. I'm always taken aback by the way that pirates are these cute Nara dwells in children's picture books or like Johnny Depp for many people. But that's not what piracy was back. Then what did it looked like? And was this unusual. Well actually one of the origin points to this project for me was years and years ago. I mean something like fifteen years ago. When my kids were very young we went to Disneyworld and we went on the pirates of the Caribbean ride and it was right after nine eleven and I had this on. I was floating down this little canals. That ride songs are being song and everything. That's very Kelly. The that the pirates were the terrorists of the seventeen hundreds and sixteen hundreds right. They were these terrifying figures would show up out of nowhere and burn your village down and attack. The women and people lived in fear of them. Here was three hundred years later. And it's just a kind of a children's story so they'll link between pirates and terrorism. Which is something that runs kind of subtly through enemy of all mankind actually began on that. Disneyworld ride in some ways. But what's historically really important about pirates at this point in history and one of the reasons why this particular story has so much significance. I think is up until this point. There was a very blurry line in terms of the legitimacy of piracy so there was this other class of occupation. That was called being a a private here. And if you were a privateer from all outside appearances you're a pirate attacking other ships and stealing their treasure and doing all these atrocious things that seat. But as long as you weren't attacking if you were a British privateer as long as you weren't attacking British ships. You're within the zone of and people like Francis. Drake a couple of generations before Henry Avery. When often basically we live the life of piracy but then came back to England and was knighted and bought a giant estate and lived a completely legitimate lifestyle. And so in a sense what happens to this period because of crime for reasons we can get into. It's a turning point where the British crown finally has to take a stand against piracy. They have to basically announced to the world that they're not a nation of pirates the way they've been accused to be. Let's talk about what made this pirate attack so noteworthy. Obviously there was the hall but were there other things that made this a big deal at the time. There are a couple of big ones. I is the other element of the crime. This ship that they attacked was a ship that had been doing business and ports of call like Mocha in the red seat but it was also filled with religious pilgrims coming back from Mecca on a whole other level was kind of a Muslim like religious transport vessel as well and among those pilgrims were a significant number of women women in the Royal Court of Aranda. Who was the great grand mogul of India? The last of the moguls and this was an unusual thing. At the time right you would not see a lot of big vessels in sixteen ninety five. That had a significant number of women on board but there are all these female pilgrims on board and so when the pirates attack the guns way they find these women there and number of the pirates rape the women on board. Some of the women commit suicide jumping overboard to avoid being attacked. And so there's this kind of outbreak of the atrocious sexual violence that happens as part of the crime and of course WORD GETS BACK TO WRONGS. Zab that not only has a hundred million dollars of his assets been stolen but members of his extended royal family have been sexually attacked and violated and this all is crucial in terms of geopolitics. Because it's right at a moment in a time where there's a major economic transition happening in the world. There's a chapter in the book called two kinds of treasure and is basically. There are two different ways of making a fortune that are in conflict with each other here. There's a very old way which is represented by Aurangzeb which is have an autocratic dynasty tax year citizens. Sit On that wealth and pass it onto your descendants. That's what every most of the rich people in the world at this point where people who were members of some kind of royal family that had some kind of dynastic wealth. But there's this new way of making money that has just appearing in it comes in the form of this interesting embryonic. New Organization called the multinational publicly traded corporation and that was the east India company. The east India Company was the first company that actually had publicly traded shares. So that people could. Outsiders could invest in the company in those shares could go up or down in value and for the first time people were making money not just through the prophets of the business but through the increase in value of these publicly traded shares and that turned out to be the future. Right dot is how if you look at the one hundred richest people in the world today. The vast majority of them were people who made money because they had traded shares in a company. They found that their parents found it. So in a sense clash between these two massive economic forces and Henry. Avery in his little pirate ship gets right in the middle of it because once. Iran's UB here's that his money has been stolen in women have been raped he threatened to eject the east India company from India which is the main source of their income. They've been trading CALICO and chinse fabrics and so on and if that had happened if they've been thrown out of India the whole course of the British Empire would have been transformed. It's entirely likely that the British Empire would not have formed in in India in the subsequent decades. If the east India company had been injected. So why wasn't it? Attracted rings up puts a number of the employees of the east India Company under house arrest and threatens to execute them and they began a furious letter writing campaign back to London. Saying we have to find the pirate we have to bring him to justice and we have to announce to the world that we are not going to tolerate piracy anymore or else this whole incredibly lucrative business that the country is increasingly dependent on is just going to disappear and so. That's what triggers this global manhunt really the first one in

The Good Pirate
"Welcome to kiss myths and mysteries. I'm your host crumb today. I'm continuing my investigation into the myths and mysteries surrounding pirates in one individual in particular because not all pirates were that evil that raped and pillaged their way up various villages along the coast. One such individual who was a pirate was Francis Drake. He was born in fifteen forty. Two by fifteen seventy six. He was the queen's favor and was directed to sail to a secret location one. She only disclosed to her inner circle. The difficulty in determining the location isn't honest return after circumnavigating the world upon his arrival back in England the coin hat all his maps and shipped logs locked up to this day. Few of these documents have been released despite. This history has revealed that Spain had blocked. Most of the trade routes England had used and she had found one end of the fabled northwest passage and the drake was to establish the other end meanwhile amateur to story and Robert Ward thinks. Drake was on a secret mission to find the northwest passage. And that's why he was sailing so far up the west coast. The idea is drake sailed up the coast. Until he found something he thought was the northwest passage perhaps Strait of Juan de Fuca but drake's bad located not far from point Reyes California and fourteen other sides claimed to be where in fifteen seventy nine drake spent sixty eight days now. He spent those sixty eight days because he needed a place to make repairs. Which involves something called careening? This is where the ship was pulled completely out of the water so that our whole be made free of worms barnacles the location of California's raise for the sixty eight day. Stay and repair of the ship are based on the area code. Drakes Bay fit in maps description of the bay where he stayed and a page from a ship's log that listed the side as thirty eight degrees north latitude and a brass plaque. The description of Indians found there but the plaque was declared a fake in nineteen thirty six and the fact that the Indians lived off. Acorns was never mentioned. And that the shape of the Bay but Oregon's whale cove also fits the shape of the bay on the map but the Indians were described as living in huts that were partially below ground. When the University of Oregon Examining area in the cove they found that just as described on the page of the ship slog the remnants of a native American hut partly underground near the side. Number of English coins were found that dated back to just before. Drake set sail. Also there was a document a firsthand description based on the observation of eight of his crew. That stated that they had stopped at forty four degrees north latitude. It would seem that a all the sites that claim to be were drake spent that summer of sixty eight days. Only the organ location forty four degrees north latitude which is exactly well. Co has the most real physical evidence of his visit. If you're driving up the Oregon coast be sure to stop at the town of Depot. Bake and enjoy the small town hospitality. Drive another mile and a half to whale cove and try to imagine what it was like for Sir Francis. Drake back in fifteen seventy nine but the debate. Over the location of Drake's North American stop rages on and despite evidence pointing at Oregon's well only put to rest when England releases all drake's maps and logs from his trip around the

Farm animals are being rented out to crash video calls
"One day last week the planet money team started off. Its Day just like a ton of businesses around the country with an early morning. Goto meeting video call waiting to take attendance. It doesn't look like we have enough squares. There was all of the usual video meeting hijinks. That have become pretty familiar by now. One Guy was on mute there were baby sightings and newly adopted puppies running around in the background. Some light breakfast banter. What are you eating chocolate ice cream for breakfast? 'cause I hope you know it's much more load than that. This is so homemade. She assumed pudding with chocolate. But about halfway through the meeting Greg. Rozanski who writes our newsletter noticed. Something strange there was a new attendee at our meeting. Zor go go what Google Drake was not hallucinating. There wasn't fact a real life grown lasko with gnarly horns stringy goatee standing inside his own little box in the corner of our Goto meeting. This is nate with Goto meeting. No really absolutely having a turn my camera around. If that's possible neat sole Peter popped into our meeting. He's the executive director of the nonprofits sweet farm foundation which is an animal sanctuary in northern California. Just to describe what we're seeing layer mate is standing in a beautiful open. Green pasture introducing us to this cast of animals that might better be described these days as the talent Magnolia she's Adore Cal zillow armor. This visit Palko so as of a couple of months ago sweet farm was making its money by hosting corporate groups at the farm so like these silicon valley tech executives would show up and volunteer and spend the day getting their hands dirty. But as the pandemic put those bookings on indefinite hold nate and his fellow sweet farm workers at to figure out a new way to make things work in one of their board members suggested that companies now suffering through all these increasingly monotonous zoom calls might pay the farm to spice things up a bit. Maybe offer if you animal cameos so we all we all kind of laughed and we were like like. There's no reason why we shouldn't try this so the next day go to meeting had its first booking and need says things just kind of blew up after that. Many goats are going to meetings these days. We we've done well over one hundred meetings at this point We have several hundred on the books moving into June. And it's become so popular that we've actually opened up a booking two other sanctuaries because we alone couldn't scale The demand prices range from sixty dollars for small groups all the way up to seven fifty forty VIP tour and it says that at at this point sweet farm is actually making slightly more money than they did last year at this time but we do expect you know the natural spike in tale of demand. So what will be seen as just how long the tail lasts whether or not that will carry us through the entire season. Can you make a make the goat noise? If THEY WANNA make noise they will definitely make the goal is to Goto. Meeting call makes the goat noise and we can try to. That's a great idea. I'd turn on the school groups do to do that.

"drake" Discussed on Front Burner
"Even people questioned his his credibility, as you know. So we know he's biracial. His father is African American from the south and his mother is Jewish and Caucasian from forest hill, white he puts out songs starter starting from the bottom and people sort of ridicule started from the bottom, you know, like you didn't come from the hood. You're not really black and of African descent and. Grassy. You know, you sort of spent a lot of your formative years in four still which is one of the wealthiest urban city on claves in all of Canada to be honest, right, but poking think things around cultural identity, I think it's sort of playing around with that. I think pushes he's kind of saying this guy's not even this. This guy's not a genuine authentic black person. Because how would a black person dressed in black face to do anything? You know? It's so offensive after push t releases Streep added on which is critical look at Drake and hits him in in so many personal spaces Drake doesn't really respond. Why is that? Drake got some very good advice in not responding. I think that was the smart wise thing to do the forward thinking progressive thing to do in tell you why you look at the history of hip, hop culture, rap music in particular what you find is. There have been a number of high profile deaths due to gun violence stemming from rat beefs things that we're supposed to stay on wax or recorded so Drake. Very good advice from James prince CEO of a company called rap a lot records, and he's kind of like this. He provides sort of elderly sage wisdom to many emerging burgeoning rap talents like Drake decode drew to him on to respond this. You know what I mean? I don't we won't put this debate. Because you know, we can get in in a pig pen would would would would peaks the because peaks turned into hall, and then always gets Lada. So the idea here that this OG giving Drake advice not to respond. And that is actually brilliant because this could have really escalated into something that brings us to Tuesday night, so pushy is on stage at the Danforth music hall for people who weren't there on Tuesday night. Can you take me through what happened? Yeah. People started throwing beers. It looked like it was coming from different parts of the, you know, like a stage right stage left, and then a guy appears to kind of run almost rush the stage at which point he is thrown down on the ground by fifties security detail push teed now then reemerges from backstage he comes back on. He's suggests where he says that someone is paying people to throw water bear on stage..
"drake" Discussed on Front Burner
"My name is Dalton Higgins, I'm publicist PR strategist and the author of far from over the music and life of Drake, which is a Drake biography. Hi, don. Hey, how're you doing? Don't you actually wrote a biography on Jake? I'm who you can help paint a picture for me. What have the last few years been for him? Yeah. The last few years for Drake have been nothing. Short of stellar. He is essentially shattering all of the prior held records by the Beatles. Most single to top the billboard charts. He's basically a ni- elating music history. 'cause we grow up with people of a certain time. And it's just like, yeah. You know, the Rolling Stones or the greatest band of all time, the Beatles Led Zeppelin, and he's essentially demolishing all of their records on billboard charts. Right. So and I am business mogul essentially and rapper push ity who is very well known. But maybe not as well known as Drake. Can you? Tell me a bit about him. Yeah. Push T. So he's a. Very well respected a rapper not just in the commercial realm. But I'd say more in this sort of underground hip, hop realm, these Virginia, and he used to be in this duo with his brother, call the clips. They actually have ties to ferrall Williams. Okay. So it's ferrall Williams who he's a super iconic lost as far as the worlds of fashion, music and popular culture. And he's the one that sort of brought them out in the nineties as far as putting out new music. They're super well respected. You know, a lot of people just kind of got their first introduction to push thi through this Drake scenario. But no he's been wrapping on the underground rap circuit for many many years. I'm hoping that we can talk about this view. I know it's been going on for years, but it hasn't been very high profile, and then it exploded this spring. So can you tell me about why it exploded? So we all knew that Drake was coming out with scorpion in the summer and that push T had a solo album coming out. So he releases a song. Call infrared alleges that Drake is not a real writer. When you don't even right. You know, he's cranked out. All of these hits these billboard chart topping hits. But he's not writing zone material. Now, that's sort of a moot point in a non issue. Can you name me like some pop artist icon who doesn't have some sort of form of singer-songwriter working in the shadows? To write these songs that type of accusations got sloughed off by a lot of hip hop. Critics like myself, it's like if he did. So what who cares, you know, if it's a if I went on credited or credited, it's a moot point. Nobody cares at which point Drake is obviously incensed he is actually good writer. He's a very skilled songwriter and lyricist that is what forms one part of his credibility is the fact that he is a good songwriter. So despite Drake being this kind of guy like degrassi show alumni, and he was handed everything to him, you know, silver spoon now. He's a really good writer. Okay. So he releases a track hall ended up freestyle where he basically attempts to tear push a shreds, you know, and we're like, okay ho-hum yawn. Another back and. Fourth. This is probably a marketing ploy to generate interest around the fact that both of them have album's coming out in the spring and summer, and that's kind of how I read it. So w freestyle Drake releases free style as a comeback track to push these infrared and to me to largely forgettable song because he's alleging that push t spins and disproportionate amount of time in in his music talking about that he deals coke. He's like a big time drug dealer, so Drake sort of calls that into question soda college. Kids the Nike which jobs. Eighties now in rap culture when you call into question, someone street credibility, and there in that whole posing posture that whole narrative and question stream. Yeah. And that's and that's a big deal in hip. Hop questioning one street credibility in rap music. That's a huge deal. Is there anything else w free? Southie does. Yeah. So in Duffy freestyle Drake also goes after push tease fiancee's. I told you playing with my name, and I'm a netted ring on Williams..
"drake" Discussed on Is The Mic Still On
"He's not gonna win. That's the whole point. Drake's not gonna win because push, you're always going to go grimy thousand percent. But I think that everybody wanted to see the level that Drake could a to because I think the out of everybody has ever said about children, not for the children, listened to Farrah like a nobody paying attention. They're gonna. They're gonna hear a great though. That's the point they're going to have Drake drop disc. They're going to hear it. It's gonna be on new Drake song gonna hear it and be like, came on and you'll baby. So you mean to tell me right? Like the Drake Drake's that here ready dropped. Did that do anything like me. Which one the one with pusher? Yeah, it wasn't really that meet. There wasn't really a lot of dirty line. I understand that, but I'm saying, are the people that listen to Drake looking at that track and being, oh my God like this. No, I think that even if he would've win gave her, okay, here's a hundred stand how you look at Drake and see the type of rapper that he is and what type of music he puts out and what type of people Li literally Drake's literally go to church and like sit in the front row and everybody would be cool it in strike and take pictures like literally, he's that type of rapper. So I think that if he were to release something that was as lethal as he said it was it really would have discredited him. It wouldn't a discredited him and I don't think he, you know. But I think overall, I just I don't think that his image would have taken a hit that wall and be break Ross door. Exactly. Oh, Drake, Drake is known as the clean boy rapper. And he has been fucking. That up for the last couple of years when he baptized. But to what degree because it is hurting them, it isn't impacting as it not. Ours still doing mazing as they were doing before I'm asking this is not me claiming, are they? I think he, I think he's status quo. Anything he drops it has a minimum has minimum is way higher than most people's maximum is he still is. He's still meeting that with these. Yes. The seems like his albums are getting a lot more critique than they were getting before. They are not really. Like I know everybody admits me when he did his first week of sales, but people fail to send me the post that happened the next week when you broke a record for the lowest number of album. So the following week after having sold as it is saying he was done. There was a big drop off from that first. We to like the second week, but I have with the whole future in Drake project is well like that firstly point. But at the end of the day, he still selling, he still getting booked. He I don't think that would try doing at some point. He's not gonna keep getting book in the same way who's getting before. Like these moms, these soccer moms who loved to dance to Drake if he keeps doing this kinda shit, they're gonna be like, okay, he's not the body, but here's the thing I think with Drake and I said it in review, like for him, all he asked to do is drop that next banger to and everything else that happened before with distracts and this that and third and whatever controversy ain't nobody gonna be remembered. It didn't say, hammer hammer was on the same level straight. No, no. What happened to him? Right? And but his career, a hammer, but hammer lived in a different era right like now, like whenever something happens is literally done five minutes ago. You know what I'm saying? The next is a Ticha span. As we not even talking about drinking in. A push anymore. We're not even talking about that if this was back in the nineties, that beef for the last eight months. But you know what, though, I think that you're also not taking into consideration the fact that Drake is clearly in a different place. Now, like even like on his tour, he brought out meek mill and he's trying to make amends with him. He brought out Chris Brown, I think, last last night or whatever..

"So we can now say for certain that drake is hiding child scorpion his fifth studio album and incidentally his longest ever as out in the world and already inescapable it's literally at the top of every chart in his faces the cover of every playlist on spotify but also in a single day broke streaming records on amazon apple music and of course spotify and the first week sales protections are off of the charts but a few questions still linger like why is it so long why is the title scorpion and most importantly after fraud album rollout during which drake might have actually lost for the first time was scorpion the return to form it needed to be music culture writer amani been shikan who is most importantly toronto native and also a drake theorist also spent all of last friday tweeting and all caps about scorpion so money i never have to me on this just know that from now i mean like i feel like you have you been sitting on something that you absolutely wanted to start this conversation with and i was gonna ask you just what you thought about the overall but i feel like you have something you gotta get off your chest i think firstly that people have a lot of strange feelings about jake and that's fine you know he is arguably one of the biggest stars of our lifetime it is what it is but my thing is that's cool you can do all that but leave us out of it and i hate when like anything drake comes everyone's like oh my god all these toronto vans think there it is all they like nature of and basically nick on this yeah i'm so sorry this is what happens invite you stand girl on a podcast talking about drake like a problem less let's let's go ahead and in unpack that us and say exactly what you mean by us yes so what i mean i guess is black toronto right and so much of what drake is so much obviously of who surround him his language his everything even the way he acts on the internet like the very particular sort of waisman cadence that he has is very trying tony in it's very black torontonian and he is just like l let's get mad from the city and it just is what it is and i think a lot of people have a hard time grappling with that even like after the album rolled out and he put all these screen shots on his instagram story i don't know if you've seen that but he had all these snapshots of all the songs who's listening to the studio and you had like all these toronto kids on it and just like you know even on his tour everything is just like it's such a particular and such an integral part of who he is but it's one of those things that people don't understand these skirt past it you know and i think that scorpion they're like you know tinges of that of him kind of leaning into it it's not as pronounces it isn't other projects but still just off the anytime drake draw something leave us out of it let's talk about it you know that's my one grave i definitely feel as though it's like one of those things in what we're talking when when when a drake project comes out and you're a lot of the criticism comes around like which accent is he trying on now i know that you've talked a little bit about this or you know yelled about it on twitter in the past about how it's just kind of like a specifically lectoure torontonian thing i guess because of all the cultures that are meeting their since the thing is it is a little bit of its two truce at the same time right so the first is that the city is obviously very black and a lot of that lack nece comes from the caribbean right like most notably jamaica so even though there are obviously huge populations of other black people from different parts of the caribbean but my thing is that sometimes people take that in run with it too far because there's also a conversation on black toronto and how back tunnels under served and neglected unless there's like some sort of capital to be gained from it also right so it's one of those things where it's.
