But tell us a little bit about yourself and how you created this podcast. Okay do you want me to start? Again. I'm the older sister were sisters and I am a performer. So I'm a singer and rapper and I like my fulltime job is just like actually being a recording artist and. I live in Toronto and Kayla lives in Cambridge but I'm always constantly in Cambridge because our family like we are obsessed with each other and why don't you tell killer I like what you do, and then we'll tell like how we started the pocket. Okay. So I have a fulltime job office coordinator in. So I also have two boys aged four and six, and they're like fricking crazy and insane, but I'm so much. But. Yeah. So we we both have really really busy crazy lives but. Like it's kind of weird to say this. But like because of Covid we were we've always talked about starting a podcast and we've always been like that would be so and people always comment like when her just having like a normal conversation they're like Oh my God like this is like from a movie and I'm like this literally just like our normal like Tuesday night like Y-. We're so. But then we would always spend like four hours talking on the phone to each other like even though we didn't have time for anything we're so close and we're so similar that we just were like like constantly talking like our boyfriends are fiancee's no like, okay. This is Stacey Kayla time like we're going to talk for a long time. Yeah and mean like literally three hours and I remember the one eight saying, do you see? I'm like, how do we possibly like keep coming up with new topics with? Each other all our lives literally over. So obsessed and being like so obnoxious. Entertaining You know. Yes. I know right and so we're like, let's just stay. Let's just record these three our conversations and let's do a podcast and it was nice because of Stacey in her career and her boyfriend marquees he is a musician I had all of this equipment, right? So I don't know anything about this tech stuff. All I know our last episode did not recruit. That opponent but I don't know why didn't record. Like serenity time like I don't have a clue I'm just mad about it, but I don't know why that. Yeah. So I, my life is crazy I have a fulltime job what my boys and then I now do this podcast but it's So Fun and like I like we've already said we're obsessed with each other. So it's like it's just like the best most rewarding thing ever and I think the thing that's most fun for me. Is that people because I'm a performer and I'm like I'm always doing like interviews and talking on stage and stuff like that. So people know my personality already and I always like because I think Kale is one of the funniest most interesting people I've ever talked to okay we're done being obsessive. I I would say to people well, my sister's really funny to you should meet her, and so I think the thing I'm most proud of unlike like excited for is that now people know Kayla and now people here what we talk about and and for those four hours of secret conversation every night. And the one. The one thing too is that were very, very open and I would like to call us like invasive. So we're like we always are asking like we'll meet some of the first time like asked him a million questions and but because we genuinely find it interesting like we want to know about that person and we're just like open books. So we're constantly saying things that the average person does not. Let I feel, and so we just now just stayed on the podcast. Just now for the world to hear our. As if we're like the world listens her upon. Exiting Lake again, and we said this on the last episode record but we're so similar in that way and I feel like that's. What makes people want to tune in is because you see it how it is and you're honest and you talk about off the cuff things that a lot of people aren't comfortable talking about we love that. But we also like. We're GONNA keep referring back to this. Episode. adding. That, we have to reminisce about it because no one. Ever talk about what? But you guys were talking about how?

Kanye West Says He Wants Taylor Swift's Masters Returned to Her
"West. Conney. Let's I don't know if he's listening to crystals nightcap the chances are point zero, zero, zero, one percent, but he's out here. What we need him to do I don't know if he's all talk right now I'm really hoping he'll walk the walk but today he tweeted something that I have personally been hoping that he would tweet for the past few years. So he tweeted that he is going to personally see it that Taylor swift gets her masters back from Scooter Braun. He says Scooter Braun is a close family friend and that he believes Taylor should own her masters. So either Connie seeing my tweets or he's listening to our podcast or he seeing the swift that are attacking him on twitter or he's just. A good guy. No I do think he's a good guy. You guys know that I've been. Back and forth with Connie, it's been really hard to be a a loyal fan to him because of his past. But as of recent watching his interviews and stuff I feel like. What he saying makes sense I admire his passion and his perseverance. I think he is a genius I think sometimes geniuses. Think, way ahead of their time and I think that's where Connie's been stuck at because he did address the whole him wearing a make America. Great again, make America great again hat and He said that with that whole thing, he was just trying to show that just because you're I'm black just because you're black doesn't mean that you have to be a Democrat or follow the status quo like he wants to show that he can do whatever he wanted to do, and in that he did hurt people. He didn't really acknowledge that or apologize for hurting his fans that way and that was years ago. That was four years ago however I do understand and see where he's coming from in that aspect and now that he's saying that he wants. To help Taylor swift with her masters. Dare I say that I'm becoming a Connie Stan again like dare I he's also been tweeting about drake lot and Not. Going to lie. It does make him look a little bitter like it makes him look kind of like a hater. And I think. Maybe it's just because drake hasn't been responding publicly and I've been saying that like one here. Drake's going to say but drinking say nothing drake. He's a man of very little words drake. He'll put it all in his music. You know he told US exactly how he felt about too cautious with his latest song, which is called laugh now cry later right And I think the same is going to happen with this situation I. think that we're going to go new song from Drake and he's going to be subliminally addressing these things. Because It's just hard to stay silent for so long when you are. In the middle of. The biggest artists. Twitter outbursts, thoughts. This is what kind of an episode but not really again, I don't want to discredit him because I feel like he's saying facts saying what's true and I've said this and I started tweeting. A few days ago or was it weeks ago? So I just really WANNA. See what Drake's going to say I am happy that Kanye got his twitter back definitely gives us something to talk to and look forward to I'm happy that he's tweeting positively about Taylor Swift I'm happy that he's scooter bronze family friend. You know what I think about Scooter Braun. I think he's awful. I really. Think he's off for. I, think that he likes to play the victim I think that he likes to play innocent He knows that he has Justin Bieber on his back. He knows that he has day when Lavar. That's got his back and I just think it's really wrong what he did to Taylor buying her masters when. He knew that she couldn't do it herself I think it was really wrong i. think it was dirty that he was posting stuff on his social media saying you know high bought Taylor swift or his friend posted that like imagine his friend posted ella when your friend buys Taylor swift and it was like the article of him buying her masters and then Scooter Braun reposted that I thought that was very tasteless and kind of like rubbing it in Taylor's face and. Do, I think Kanye West is going to persuade Braun to give Taylor her masters no I I don't think that Scooter Braun is. An undercover narcissist

Activists demanding justice for Breonna Taylor protested on Kentucky Derby Day
"The first Saturday in May. But this is Kentucky Derby Day after the postponing of the race is just one reason the 146 Derby is one for the history books As W. F B L Stephanie Wolf explains.

Ah, a lot of that is gone this year due to the global pandemic and even more notable None of 155,000 plus fans in the grandstands a revision Churchill Downs, the home of the Derby made recently. That's not all That's different this year. Louisville just marked 100 consecutive days of protest against racism and police violence and demonstrators plan to make Derby 101 days. Several groups held a press conference near Churchill Downs Friday. This's Ehren Jordan of No justice, No peace Louisville. We have several black organisations behind us, and we have full intent to black out their happened demands to cancel dirty something that's never been done before. Haven Harrington is CEO and host of main event sports radio. He's covered the Derby for years. He thinks it should be run. It's the city's signature event. But while the horse racing industry doesn't often weigh in on social justice issues, Harrington says, Now is not the time for silence in this town, you know, which is still waiting on bated breath for what's gonna happen with You know Briana Taylor and the officers involved can't just be big hats in pretty dresses. You have to say and do something to acknowledge the situation. Churchill Downs did issue a statement Thursday afternoon, acknowledging how black jockeys once dominated the race, but were then excluded and acknowledging the pain community members feel right now as they wait for the state attorney general and FBI to conclude their investigation into the police, killing a Briana Taylor. It's important to carry on, says Churchill Down CEO Bill Car Stange in here he is talking on CNBC support for hewing important are our traditions and culture in our community. Tell me how this will unify the community. The running of course, poet activist Hannah Drake lives near Churchill Downs. She's had a simmering frustration with the Derby for years. Even more. So, she says, as she faces arrest for obstructing the highway by protesting in the streets. But I for Darby, too inconvenient me and block off street, not let me pass that fine. Drake, who is black, recently wrote a letter to the CEO asking for some self reflection of the institutions, lack of black representation and a lack of in her opinion, compassion. This is the institution that can redeem itself and they need to start by asking himself. How can we be better neighbors? So this Adjacent community and to the very one way she thinks they could do better is by dumping a tradition, she says, is rooted in racism.
Live Missile Found at LAL
"So what's the fun? An unexploded bomb at Lakeland airport influence is where son and finance look. That's what the news report says. Okay, exactly an unexploded bomb but live missile alive missile could be better or worse than an unexploded Bob depending on you know what they mean by live missile. Now, this story that we saw kind of goes out of its way to say it serious but not crazy dangerous. and. Right. So who would a jeb you? This story is yeah. First of all, this is from the Tampa Bay. Times. On August seventeen and There's in addition to, of course, Sunan Fund our other businesses and and concerns at Lakeland Linder Airport in where Senate, funding occurs each used to occur each year. So one of the businesses at that airport is a defense contractor. and. This defense contractor discovered invented had taken delivery of what is being called a live missile. Basically the quote from the company says in the process evaluating shipments to drake. International, Lakeland facility our team discovered an object with questionable markings. There's a quest, there's upset title for you. Indicated getting maybe explosive adhering to the explosive safety rule of exposing the minimum number of people for the minimum amount of time to potential explosive has it. We got the hell out. No, that's not what it says. It says we made the decision to evacuate the facility, inform our surrounding tenants and contact the appropriate authorities soon as possible. Apparently. This was a missile with an unexploded were alive warhead. It's unclear whether it was. You know solid fuel and ready to ready to be fired. There's all kinds of other questions that could be asked here there's a picture. Of. Understand what that picture is go ahead swept for there's a picture of some men wearing army fatigues, air force for something like that wrestling with this thing, it's about. the size of a small car or maybe a medium size car about that length, and it looks like could be about a meter in diameter. It's on cradle with with cash string wheels, and all this they're trying to me and handle it on the back of this flatbed truck Very interesting. So all kinds of things going on. At lakeland airport when it's not so infantile. Now, a couple of questions here first of all this jurors, what's the? It's Drake Drake Aka a K., and international.

Gotham Knights doesn't have Batman in it and Suicide Squad
"Gotham Knights is the next game from the developer behind Batman Arkham. And Batman isn't in it? DC held its massive DC fan dome event this weekend where they shared all kinds of panels and trailers for DC related stuff. They talked about wonder woman nineteen eighty-four, which looks cool and the Snyder cut of Justice League which look you know I am ecstatic for you. If you're excited about that I don't think making that movie longer it's going to make it any better, but you know that has nothing. To do with video games. They also showed a trailer for the Robert Patents and Matt Reeves Batman Movie, which I thought looked pretty great. I'm excited for that. But the most exciting news for me was learning about what WB Montreal was working on and learning a lot more about rock steadies suicide squad game. So finally, officially, WB Montreal revealed it is working on a game called Gotham knights the trailer for the. Game Open with a newscast revealing that Bruce Wayne is dead and then a cut to a video. Batman had recorded in case of his death and what needed to be done in his absence, and then we got to see back girl night wing Red Hood and Robin basically stepping it up to be the new protectors of Gotham from there it looked a lot like a Batman Arkham game which I am. Saying as a complement, each of the four heroes appears to have a distinct set of abilities and are able to drive bat cycles around Gotham. Bad girl seems perhaps the closest to playing as Batman. As we know him in the Arkham Games, a brawler uses a zip line to move around night wing was playable on a few occasions in the Batman Arkham Games and he looks similar here uses batons as weapons. Red Hood. Who sometimes bad guy. But seems to be a good guy in this instance uses guns. He is former Robin Jason Todd who was resurrected, and now you know very angry general. And finally, we saw robin the Tim Drake version. Of Robin, who appears to use a lot of tech gadgets I was certain. We were looking at Damian Wayne Bruce Wayne's biological son during the trailer who is Robin in the current Comic Book Canon. But after the fact, it was made pretty clear that this is Tim Drake. The trailer ended with a tease we have been expecting for long time with the Court of owls taking center stage. We saw familiar locations from the Court of Appeals, comics people wearing court of appeals, masks, and hundreds of coffins that store the immortal superhumans at the Court of Appeals tends to use to do its dirty work. After the trailer premiered, they showed about seven minutes of Gameplay. The game play footage took place about a dozen hours into the game and focused on a part of the story revolving around Mr Freeze we saw back girl wearing a different costume than what was shown in the trailer running around the city, zipping up to rooftops and attacking enemies from above Robin joined her similarly wearing a different outfit than the one seen in the trailer, and they made their way into Mr Freezes. Fort I guess you could say where he had this crazy weather machine going multiple approaches to taking out enemies were shown bat girl was more of a brawler uninterested in a stealthy approach but robin was shown sneaking up on enemies Alford called the duo to give them advice and we also saw and bat girl team up for a single attack it culminated with a boss fight confrontation Mr freeze before too much progress could be made against him. The video came to a close the game going to be an up to two player coop game and will apparently have lots of leveling up options over the course of the game and enemies will level up with you. Implication is you tackle things just about any order as a result if you're level five when you fight freeze, he's level five. But if you love of fifteen, then he is little fifteen in that changes things. Afterward. Zachary Levi. She's Zam himself asked WB Montreal a few questions. They didn't offer a whole lot of additional information. They did say the mystery is bigger than the court of owls though and later it was also confirmed that the game is separate from the Arkham universe it's a standalone new Batman Universe the game is planned for next year I love the narrative conceit of Batman being dead I. Hope they lean into that and it's not just a big endgame twist that he's been alive the whole time I, liked the. Idea of that crew of four trying to figure out how to protect Gotham without Batman I. think that's really cool I. also love the Look of writing the bat cycle through the city and how at least at this point it it does look close to Arkham game play.
Can the Midwest expect more derechos?
"That durant show that tour across Iowa and Illinois August tenth flattened as much as fourteen million acres of cropland seventy to one hundred plus mile an hour winds blew down trees and power lines more than half a million islands lost power some for more than a week. The word the ratio means straight ahead in. Spanish these massive straight line wind events travel more than two hundred and fifty miles and produce wind gusts over. Seventy five miles an hour. Why is the Upper Midwest climatological hotspot for these massive windstorms that howl for hundreds of Miles Victor Seaney is a professor with Northern Illinois University specializing in severe storms. Hi Victor Welcome to climate cast. Thanks for having me on. Paul what stands out to you about that August tenth Rachel probably the number of wind reports that we had over seventy five miles per hour usually when these jobs occurred you. Can get widespread fifty to sixty mile per hour winds. But as we saw in several cities in Eastern, Iowa in Northern Illinois and even into the Chicago land area, this particular day Joe was producing winds in excess along its path of seventy five miles per hour. Obviously, the wind speed gets higher. So does the damage we all know about Tornado Alley and there's also a higher donate show frequency there but the radio frequency is Also high here in the Upper Midwest and the southern Great Lakes right it is an actually if you had to pick one city on the map that experiences more durations than anywhere else in the United States, it would be sort of Rockford Illinois Northern Illinois here is really ground zero for the shows and it really goes back to the ingredients that you need in order to get these types of long live windstorms we've. Had some historic data shows in the Upper Midwest? The Boundary Waters Blow Down Fourth of July nineteen ninety nine is something people here in Minnesota remember what is it about the summertime atmosphere over the Upper Midwest? That's conducive to durant chose well, for those of us who live up here in the summer we know it's the heat and humidity, and of course, you have heat and humidity present on many days in the summertime. But what really differentiates from a direct show, Dave versus a normal thunderstorm day are these bigger disturbances that moved through the atmosphere and a lot of vertical wind shear strong jetstream overhead that all comes together to create a very favorable atmosphere for these rages. The bulk of evidence seems to suggest that climate change doesn't show strong links to the intensity of d'auray chose why is that? It's not that it doesn't show strong relationships is. That it's sort of unknown in that we have a lot of errors right now with our experiments in the models that we have that can project into the future the potential changes. Our best guess right now is that the amount of days that we're going to have in the future that having this extreme heat and humidity will increase, but it's sort of unclear if that's GONNA translate to more of these types of Drake Joe. Windstorms is there any evidence that Rachel climatology could shift northward as the climate warms there are certainly studies out there that show northward shift in what we call the mid latitude jetstream and these types of phenomenon in theory should shift with that northward shifting jet. Again, these are attribution type of studies that will need to be retested in the future and continue to be tested with new data before I think we can say anything. More robust about what we're going to expect with these types of storms. I don't think there's a rating system for Rachel's how would you rate that one that crossed Iowa into Illinois on August tenth this particular Drake Shift you had to ask me is probably one intend to one in fifteen year event across the Midwest Professor Victor Jen, Seaney with Northern Illinois University. Thanks so much for being on climate cast today. Thanks for having me.
Breland Talks Country, Hip Hop And Protests
"The music video for the hit song. My truck starts off like mini country music videos, country star Sam honey with a wide brimmed hat walks through a cloud of dust. Yoke and drank my leg. Come you. Can Take Mama and Yuka small. Schools these horns you can say you hate me you. Down to my truck. Then a young black man appears wire brimmed glasses and a huge grand shoves him out of the frame. Out. At the start of this year, he was just a recent college graduate trying to break into music then truck up and the song hit number one on spotify viral fifty chart back in February. The music video now has over twenty four million views and counting religious music defies definition. He's country trap hip hop aren be and so much more, and he joins us now from his home in Nashville to reflect on his music and his life as part of our series on how artists are reimagining and reflecting the current moment in their work. Thanks so much for being here. Thank you for having such a glowing introduction to bring you with me everywhere now. Oh Yeah I'll do it. So you're a recent college Grad, writing songs trying to break down the doors of the music business, and then all of a sudden you're going viral with this country song what what was it that actually got you to try your hand at Country Music Just. Always trying to do things that I think can can push the boundaries. I don't like to feel stagnant. So this was kind of came about kind of a challenge show in the studio with with some friends of mine, and we were kind of talking about the new wave of. Country Crossover records that had been that have been coming out like Old Town road and I was just like I feel like I can make a song like that and it would be pretty dope and they were like Nah man you can't make like that and I was like, okay challenge accepted so. Just started. Working on it and was able to come up with something. I guess that that stuck with people you've mentioned other artists like a little gnaws, of course, with Old Town road We also know though about the massive debate over what country is and who country belongs to. What is country to? country to me is a genre of music that is really just defined by strong songwriting and storytelling I think anyone can can make it. I think anyone can you know their based country music stars who are from? Other countries you know between. Fine and have been there some others, and then it really just comes down to the music and then whether or not people accept you I want to deepen that a little bit though because the New York Times reports that my truck isn't really picking up steam on traditional country music stations which are known to be pretty conservative. Do you even about that? I mean it would be it would be nice to have gotten more country radio support I. Think like Sirius Xm, the highways played it a lot. But in terms of traditional country radio, I don't think we got any spends I was hoping when I put Sam Hi on the remixed that would have probably validated it a little bit but it wasn't quite enough and I I understand it though because if you listen to country radio, it's. Tends to be wide dudes over forty so. For me to be a twenty five year old black dude. I, have a song, eight hundred weights and like hip hop production on it like it would've been a lot different than what was currently being played. My thing is if all of these country music fans are these a lot of them who are under thirty for example, are also listening to like drake and Migos, and even like our day and those cat, why do they have to leave the genre to get their fix of like bars and like hard beats like I feel like? Especially, with after after my truck came out I, realized that audience needs music and I know how to make it and I can I kinda stand in my in my own lane and help carve out a sub genre of music that speaks to the millennial modern country fan

Tommy Orange Reads Louise Erdrich
"This month we're going to hear the years of my birth by Louisa Drake, which was published in the New Yorker in January of two thousand eleven growing up in the midst of a large family I had never registered visitations from my presence. At those rare moments when I was alone as something strange. The first time I was aware of it was when I was taken from Betty and putting the White Room. After that occasionally had the sensation that there was someone walking beside me or sitting behind you. Always, just beyond my peripheral vision. The story was chosen by Tommy Orange whose first novel there there was published in two thousand eighteen and was a finalist for the Pulitzer Prize. Hi Tony. Hey Deborah. So what made you choose a story by Louis urging for the podcast so you had published, I think last year. Short story of hers called The stone is a pretty short short story and is it was a strange story and it just struck me So when you asked me to choose a story I went looking for another one of hers. She's actually published a lot in the New Yorker because I haven't known her for Short Sir she only as one collection of short stories you don't with pretty massive career, most of her stories started stories and end up in her novels. Yes. That's what I've heard her say and this one just struck me I think it's such a perfect story. In what way is perfect for you. You know what I love that fiction can do is the way it can get inside a consciousness and the way it can push mystery. There's something. So mysterious in this story and I don't necessarily always like magical realism but what Lewis does so well, in a lot of her work is sort of pushing boundaries of reality where it still believable still realism you never are asked to believe too much sort of realism's magic. There's something so strange and mysterious about it and really powerful the sort of cultural touchdowns that she does. So subtly though a native culture plays into it in the way, white culture comes up. Yeah. It's interesting because there is a supernatural component, but it can also be read as almost completely realistic. You can kind of how much you WANNA. Think of this as a kind of allegorical story and how much you want to think of it as real. Yeah. This is exactly what what I love about this story and what Louise doesn't work like I said. And if you've been reading, Lewis worked for most of her writing career at least. I mean, she's definitely one of my favorite writers of all time but I came to her a little bit later in my reading path. It wasn't until I was going to the Institute of American Indian Arts Getting my MFA a lot of native literature I didn't come to until getting into the program I. Sort of came in through a back door reading. Wise. I read a lot of work in translation, but I read love medicine I and just completely fell in love with her work. And do you feel the connection for you is that you have shared native American heritage? Definitely when I first started reading actually was a little bit turned off to some native fiction because it was. So reservation based and I, I have this urban experience but that was just sort of at the beginning of me thinking about native representation what it would look like in my own work the way that she handles bringing in native culture I think is so perfect. There's a clumsy way to do it and she never does it that way. always comes across really organically. and. Do you think that this story the the years of my birthday this characteristic if that main character as we'll discover is actually not native. Yeah I. Think the way that that works for the reader to something. Really Cool. Sort of putting you into a native family as a white character does a lot of work for the story I think. We'll talk more after the story and now here's Tommy Orange reading the years of my birth by Louise urge. The years of my birth. The nurse had wrapped my brother and a blue flannel blanket and was just about to hand him to his mother when she whispered. Oh God there's another one and out I slid half dead. I then proceeded to diner ernest going from slightly pink to a dull grey blue at which point the nurse tried to scoop me into a bed warm by lights. She was stopped by the doctor who pointed out my head and legs. Stepping between and the mother, the doctor addressed her. Mrs Lascher I've something important to say your other child had a congenital deformity and may die. Shall we use extraordinary means to salvage it? She looked at the doctor with utter incomprehension at first then cried. No.

Let's get into it starting a number sixteen in our countdown, and it's one I guess you know for British fans is a very a memorable I will say a fairytale story where we him back to Twenty-six.

Travel to Devon and Cornwall, England
"Welcome to amateur traveler I'm your host Chris Christensen. Let's talk about Devon and Cornwall. I'd like to welcome to the show. Ryan Duffield from Devon who has come to talk to us about the city of Plymouth in southern England and also the surrounding area, including Devon and Cornwall. Ryan welcome to the show. 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.
"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.

"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..

"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.

"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.

"To use your example to kill a mockingbird and then like you would just read the book man that was really great and then a week later drake was just like man i just read kill a mockingbird you would at least at the very it's a different kind of scale but at the very least thing that's kind of cool that you've messed up mentally with someone that you look to your entertained by i but i don't think i think gaming's already done that everyone games everyone even if they stated they're not like a gamer whatever they're sitting there playing a game on their phone or at the very least they've heard of fortnight now and are talking about it and know that it exists i i guess the the counterargument to all that is this is a phenomenon that has existed forever you know like whoa that pharaoh has a cat i should get a cat you know that sort of thing like the the king is i mean that's i know that's the thing that's been going on forever it's like people just follow what the leaders doing because like well if the king talks that way on gonna talk like these two that's how trends and things start so what i'm saying is drake is basically jesus well sure yeah i mean i don't disagree i just think that when you have the perfect combination of someone who is directly involved with the video game industry as a performer who is that skilled in his already pulling in a hundred thousand viewers on twitch on any given day and then you have someone else who is literally at the top of their field as an entertainment as an entertainment trainer in the music industry and a game that can bring both of them together in that both happens all all three happen at once there's something different about that then what you would typically assume as just a person who's influential liking fix.
