"Our podcast, but give it a shot. Well, here's my first spliff. The NASA Space six crew has returned over the weekend, the Dragon capsule splashed down in the Gulf of Mexico. A recovery vehicle was moved in to pick him up, and they found that the capsule was surrounded by private boats. I guess everybody wanted to go and see, you know. Screaming metal hung comes out of the sky might be space radiation. But you know, it doesn't happen all that often. It doesn't attract some attention. Once you see that land, too. But the crew was happy with the mission and it was, they said. It was truly our honor and privilege as they arrived home on behalf of the space X and NASA teams. Welcome back to Planet Earth. Thanks for flying Space six that president who attended the capsule's launch on the 30th hailed it safe return. Excellent. The successful end of the mission is the first time since 1975..

You Dont Exist. But You Actually Do
"In this episode, we're going to take a simple useful down to earth stroll through one of the most confounding liberating concepts in Buddhism. On. The one hand. Buddhists. Tell us the self is an illusion. You don't exist. On the other hand they tell us well, actually on some level you do, of course exist. So which is it? The answer this frustrating the answer is both. But this concept which is called not self selflessness Igla snus or emptiness. This concept does not have to be some hopelessly esoteric riddle. It is actually a game changer that we can all apply in our own lives. Here to tell us how to do that. Guy, Armstrong, who has been a meditation teacher in insight tradition for decades, he's written a book called emptiness. He is the husband of Sally Armstrong who appeared on the show just a few weeks ago. I. Actually conducted the interviews back to back last fall. But. Even though this was recorded before the record events twenty, twenty, the concepts here in our I, assure you. Perennially us. So here we go with Armstrong. Well, nice to see you again, thanks for coming on Nice to see you Dan. So the latest die back into your. biography, just a little bit. What was it about back in the seventies about meditation? No. What was it about your life that the practice of meditation and the? Teachings of the Buddha, such a big deal for you that you actually. You. Had Gone to a fancy college if I recall rice in Houston and you've worked in Silicon Valley and you were teaching at a alternative school in Palo. Alto. You basically put all that to the side and became, as you said, a Dermot Bum. Why? Well, it was two things I'd had a long standing interest in Buddhism. Really from my college days, it just spoke to me philosophically in a way that no other system ever had. There was a depth of precision and accuracy the really resonated with me, and the second thing was I was not very happy in my life at that time, I came out of the sixties and my life was really unsettled and I I did a little too much of all the things that people did too much of the sixties. Victor. and. So I was still trying to put my life back together and I never felt invested in the worldly things that I was engaged in. So this Dharma practice came along and I remember sitting on my first retreat. And I reached into a level of stillness of mind that I had never felt before. and. I think what struck me at that time? Was the basic. You could call it in this. You could call it space that meditation. In my mind I felt anything is possible in this place. So looking back now on that experience, what I tapped into was the basic emptiness or you know more congenial word is openness. Of Our mind, our basic situation I saw anything was possible. And I. I must admit I was really drawn by the concept of enlightenment. But there could be transformative moments of insight that would change your life forever you know in a positive way. said two things in there. I WANNA follow up on. We say anything is possible. Do you mean you could play for the NBA? You could learn how to fly. What do you mean when you say I, don't suspect you do to what do you mean exactly when you say anything is possible in that space by meant that the mind could be. Shaped or formed in any direction one wanted I just saw this vast potential of the space in the mind that was revealed through that stillness. And I knew that any degree of suffering that had come into my life didn't need to be there.

Except over the past year, China has told the world that it can't take all of our junk anymore. Why not? Well, we humans have generated too much of it and recycling all of that crash has become too difficult for China. So, what does that mean for how we recycle our garbage? Well, it means that in many cities in America and even in other countries they stopped recycling. Just stopped, recycling like Dennis. Mandy. I didn't stop recycling I never started gay Roz, if they're not recycling than what's happening with all that cardboard and plastic, well, a lot of it is being incinerated or burned. Well, that sounds like a pretty good plan to me. Well, unfortunately, it's not because every time you burn this stuff, it creates pollution in our air pollution that makes our air dirty
Laser Communication: How Shorter Wavelengths Means Greater Bandwidth
"Now bringing you stories behind the ideas that shape our future today sending a map of Mars to Earth might take nine years with current radio systems but as little as nine weeks with laser communications. Here's Glen Jackson Payload Manager. For the laser communications relay demo had Nasr's Goddard Space, Flight Center to explain why optical communication systems are more efficient. The wavelength of light is much smaller than the wavelength of radio frequencies and the small the wavelengths, the more information you can condense in a small period of time. So we get. Greater Bandwidth with optical communication as the wavelength get smaller, this technology would allow us to move large amounts of data and high definition video. In shorter amounts of time, we could communicate with rovers or astronauts on Mars, actually seeing and hearing more of their adventures on the Red Planet and laser communication systems on earth could provide high bandwidth in remote areas,

The great broadband divide: Living without high-speed internet access
"Austin, Texas, So many kids weren't online last semester, but the school system had to print and male 40,000 homework packets a week. They resorted to fill in school buses with portable WiFi hot spots and parking them near apartment complexes where a lot of people have no broadband service. Now, you might say Austin shining star of high Tech American cities. According to geese own Austin illustrates the biggest broadband problem of all the vast majority of Americans who don't have broadband Internet access is because they can't afford it because the price is too high. And sure enough, the U. S. Has the third most expensive broadband Internet in the developed world. Mostly because there's not much competition. It's just a money problem and not a problem of putting wires in the ground. We should be complaining about both the lack of actual network infrastructure. In many places, but also the cost. The thing is, we fix problems like this before. In 1930 for only 11% of rural Americans had electricity. President Franklin Roosevelt created the rural Electrification Administration. New lines going up almost everywhere. At the rate of 500 miles a day, and within 20 years, 90% of those homes had cheap, reliable electricity. Now. Over the years, the government has come up with a basket of programs designed to help with Internet affordability and accessibility. Unfortunately, sewn says they haven't always worked as designed. The FCC has now for well over a decade paid out tens of billions of dollars to rule broadband companies to build Internet access. In places where there isn't any And the fact of the matter is is that the government has gotten a very, very poor return on its investment. This FCC and I'll even say you know, the FCC that I work for has not done a very good job of demanding that these companies tell us what they've actually built with the money they've gotten. This is not making the FCC looked too good. I don't think it's incompetence. I think part of it is resource is you know the the FCC staff has shrunk enormously. In the last decade or so, where to tell the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the FCC chairman a Jeep. I declined our request for an interview. But in a written response, the FCC says We ensure efficient cost effective spending on subsidies for rural broadband. Earlier this year, Congress passed a law requiring the FCC to improve the way it measures Internet access. But the FCC says that nothing will happen unless Congress also pays for it. The FCC simply does not have the $65 million we need to start the process and implement that law through its first year. Meanwhile, the agency is promoting new technologies like five g, cellular and low earth orbit satellites that might address our broadband problems someday. But for now, most seem to agree on one thing. Especially these days, the Internet should be considered a necessity.
Crew Dragon astronauts wrap up historic test flight
"And a pair of NASA astronauts face the final and most important part of their space six test flight. Returning to Earth with a rare splashdown. Doug Hurley and Bob Banking are expected to touch down off the coast of Florida just before three o'clock this afternoon of the astronauts began their historic two month trip to the international space Station at the end of May, when the space X Dragon capsule lost from the right from a ground pad in Florida.

Storm doesn't scuttle plan for astronauts' return

"Higher. Three injures me Earth Ranger Emma? Sorry I haven't been on air for a while. I've actually been busy helping my best friend. Sarah Starter own podcast. It's called the big mouth and it's all about climate change and how it's affecting people and animals around the world but don't worry it's not the typical scary story kind of deal that may expect some climate change podcast. No Sarah does a great job staying positive and her show Super Fun. Oh wait she actually sent me a recording of the exact moment when she decided to start the show. They should play that for you. So you'll see what I mean Let me see Where's that clip? Yeah here we go big thoughts say let me God just so much to think about where to even start I know I school today. We had an assembly with like a slide show thing and it was all about climate change and environmentalism and it was crazy. The whole thing was just problem after problem and everyone speaking and either presentations with some vague warning about things that works and like that's the usual right every time you turn on the news you hear that officials say climate change and most of the time. I just listening this bad feeling in worried and like that's it but today I don't know something changed. I was listening to it and I just kept thinking. This isn't okay. Why is this still like this? Someone Someone needs to say something. Someone needs to do something and then. I fought me right. I think about this all the time. I care deeply about the planet. I know how to fact check in research. I kind of know how to record audio. Kinda but the point is this plan started to form in my mind and now I feel like I have to do it. My guys I'm going to do it. I'm going to start a podcast to figure out what's really going on with climate change. But it's going to be different. I'M GONNA do it in a way that flips the usual bad news. No answers vibe. 'cause like who needs more that. I'm going to try and talk to people who really study it and cut through the noise like the people who are actually changing things. Scientists Aktyubinsk risks. And he is. I can get on the phone even more than that. I WanNA talk to teams. Feel the same way I do and have started to act because I know I know so many other teams all over the world are the same and I just think if we can find each other and communicate. Maybe we can actually turn things around. It's a lot to think about but I am so ready to do this. That was by bus. Sorry I gotta go. Hey wait a melt. Podcast is brought to you by Earth Rangers and Gen Z. Media climate change is changing everything. And I've got something to say about that. The big melt. Don't freak out figuring out. Make sure to smash that. Subscribe Button where you get your task later. Staters Sarah. Doesn't that sound cool?

"And don't forget to share it with friends when I first visited the southwest and I saw cows. It was a shock because I was from the Midwest and we have grass and visibly. You can see you know big fat healthy cows all your life and you go see these cows with. Choya sticking out of their lips and you can see their ribs and everything else in. Iowa's just struck by people's to nasty to to me. Apparently holed up this Marlboro man rancher. John Wayne kind of mythology because clearly. Nobody was making any money. 'cause I looked at the landscape and I looked at the cows and their you know their need to eat and I just couldn't reconcile how anybody could ever make money. It's not something we actually talk about on this show until today. I've never really asked anybody. You mentioned money before these guys really make money like grazing on these really marginal marginal for their excellent for wildlife. They're very very marginal after. They've been degraded for just one season of grazing. I never pictured these guys when when I was younger making any money I thought they were just hobbyists can make money. To the extent that their expenses are largely offset through subsidies. We have a really low public land grazing fee. It's a dollar thirty five a month to raise your cow and calf on pub on her Kass on public lands and then you know. There's subsidies for drought payments and and disaster payments. And if your animal if you're live suck at eaten by predators they pay you for that too and you know there's a lot of offsets to the public land bledstock crazy industry that other small businesses don't get for their further losses or you know for their games like infrastructure The other thing I think that's important to recognize is what public lands livestock grazers get is political influence. A lot of how the West was developed by Western Easterners with to claim the landscape using livestock as a way of holding new territories. And then that. The displacement of indigenous people from those landscapes was backed up by the US military. So it's been a long time. They hit the history of the west of white people. In the West has largely depended upon the influence of the livestock industry on Clinton laying claim took landscape and those same livestock ranchers you know there s generation on the same ranch when they go speak to their congressperson or senator. They have an undue influence. It's a power trip that has been going on for a hundred and fifty years just in the West and so whether or not making money. There are having an influence over the political landscape. That's far out sizes their you know contribution to our communities or you know even beef production and things like that so there's a it is really a marginal business model most ranchers. These days are not relying on the money from the ranch at probably a hobby Somebody in the family has a has a real job or or it's just you know a Lark that they have an idea that they're going to be the Marlboro Man on horseback and and make some money any way you look at it. It's kind of a scam. It's a scam for the taxpayers. It's a sort of social cultural scam because the way that these people have Over Western governments is overlooked the impacts that that tradition has had on native and indigenous communities and still has a native and indigenous communities It overlooks their contribution towards imperilling species. Wiping predators destroying waterways. And they're not really the heroes that the American myth would have would make them out to be so not maybe not exactly like a hobby but like chess pieces on a board of politics and control and and really an outsized influence to the you know degree that these people represent in a general population situation. They're very very very small percentage but with such a voice we gotta yeah. I mean it's they. They are of minor part of the West. But they have a big influence in rural places and That's one of the things that I work to try to do. Is to really make it. Make people understand. Public wins are valuable to all of us whether we go there or not because of their contributions to watersheds air quality. Wildlife Habitat Border Connectivity among for Migration we need these places and we need them not to be trashed. The problem with the land is a very often. There's so badly managed that nobody wants to recreate there anyway. And so they right people right off the alarm lands and go to National Park Service or national forest to hike. But you know look around and you see if bill inlands have just as much diversity and potential As anywhere and they're mostly desert landscape so they're really interesting. Desert ecosystems with cool things happening and you know Arad aired adopted plants and animals and I just wish that more people were invested in seeing these places thrive instead of seeing those places where they might might be able to make a buck so it stands to reason that that if someone's felt their grazing operation was endanger in any way they're not freaking out necessarily about their cattle operation. They're freaking out more about the loss of their potential their power to go to DC and complain about city slickers asking for government handouts when they probably flew there on a government handout and every single bit of their operations supported by government handouts the giant irony of grazing in the West right And the things that I think. It's a loss of power that they would fear the most. If so if I bring that up just so that the other activists listening really know what we're up against like. They're not just the really about the money. It's about power and influence and think about that. The next time you go to a public these guys get very very red in the face. That's what they're fearing to lose. That's right yeah. I believe that's true. I think that they fear Change because they have held onto the West They've had as sort of you know. White supremacy world view that has claimed these lands for one hundred fifty years and they don't want they don't WanNa share. They want to be in control of them. They WanNA maintain their custom and culture of being the powerful people in the West and shifting around. Some you know the more. We understand the more Diversity you know moving into our western city. The bigger the recreation industry grows the more people understand about climate change and climb on it Sinks Carbon Sinks. And how important these public lands are for for our whole planetary health the less power that those people have.

"We've had this living green engine that has produced everything that life needs. And right now we're going into the engine or just removing one part here one part there one part there and we remove apart and everything seems to be fine and so we keep doing it but one day you wake up and you find that the functionality of those incredibly essential systems is is no longer there who came up with the idea of half. Where's the science behind fifty percent? Hey So let me just acknowledge that. I think that there's been a lot of Indigenous groups and indigenous peoples who have for decades and centuries been essentially talking about this holistic idea that we call nature needs half. But is this idea that we are embedded in a web of life. We have to act with respect and reciprocity toward nature. Nature has needs. We aren't just the ones with knee. Nature has needs and we have to live respectfully in that That that framework In terms of western science it really started in the nineteen seventies With the the the Odem they were the ones who first published research and it was. It wasn't it wasn't about the entire planet it was It was about Ecosystems in Florida I believe I may be wrong about that but They they basically observed that after about half and this berries by ecosystem by the way there are some ecosystems that are very fragile like the rainforest that require seventy five to eighty percent But there are other ecosystems like grasslands that maybe only need forty percent but but what what the owners of served is that after approximately half the ecosystem hit a tipping point where functionality began to decline precipitously and that ecological services from the ecosystem whether that's producing oxygen whether you know purifying water or preserving topsoil that those ecological services basically just began to evaporate after half Later on in the nineteen nineties it was read knows who really began to Research this and applied these conclusions at a planetary scale and began to Say you know it's not it's not just one ecosystem here and there it's the entire biosphere that this applies to because of these ecosystems are interconnected all of them serve each other whether their neighbors or from a distance in in different ways migrating species genetic flow climates rainfall. All of these systems are interconnected and so we have to start thinking about this sort of planetary level in two thousand nine at the Ninth World Wilderness Congress and Meriden Mexico Harvey Locke and Vance Martin and Cyril Cormo of the Wild Foundation launched. The nature needs half network for the first time and the goal of this was to essentially get people in conservation talking about this idea and prioritising the protection of half and I think it's Harvey Locke says that they just said what everybody was saying privately to each other but that many didn't feel comfortable or safe thing publicly and nature needs half. Was this agenda building activity that we're going to make a safe platform for people to come out and say this publicly and we're going to start agenda-setting and getting this on the conservation agenda and later on the Public Policy Agenda So we've been doing that for ten years and it's been very needed because initially we received from conservation leaders around the world and I mean we have some of these letters framed in our office but but what they were telling us is that of course. I agree with you privately but I would be crazy to come out in public support of this because I would be laughed at and you will be too and in the last ten years that's changed. We're no longer laughing about the idea of protecting half in fact. I think we're skram willing to figure out how we do it And E O Wilson in two thousand sixteen with his Book Earth. Really helped Move that forward on the agenda and so that's kind of the evolution of this idea. It getting to the level of prominent that it is at now you know win coalition start to form around anything. It makes me feel better because I feel like resources are being used better that leverage of of synergies between organizations. There's not a Lotta waste there because they're no longer in isolation and I think it came to a head for me when I started looking at you guys and seeing the coalition that was forming their around this because as we talk about umbrella species keystone species. And we're talking about reloading connectivity projects giant projects small projects. We talk about those for read and Michael soulet informant and everybody would talk about those so that we could organize around something and we are heads. Wouldn't pop off because those species were meant to represent everything that falls under the umbrella and it was an organizing factor. And I'm starting to see and I have for years started to see you. Guys as a an organizing factor of the organizers and organizing factor of the organizations in this big total voice and it's been incredibly refreshing as I said before I refer back to it to get my energy back up about all of this so that it doesn't feel like it's just a million little battles and there's really no line drawn. There's no frontline it's just. It's all the lines and it can feel overwhelming to conservationists. Well thank you for saying that and I can totally relate to the the overwhelming When I'm meeting New People and they're like what do you do and I'm like well. I work on an international team. That's trying to protect the planet and in ten years It can be a little overwhelming. But but but here's a let me let me make a comparison here back in the early nineteen sixties. Jfk and you know the cold height of the Cold War. Everyone's worried about everyone else nuking each other etc and JFK comes out and he says we're going to go to the moon in ten years we're going to do what's never been done before. And we'RE GONNA. We're GONNA beat the Soviets to the moon and because he said that and because he made his objective society began to mobilize all the different industries and technologies and support staff that would be needed and the the innovation that would be needed to reach. What in the early nineteen sixties wasn't impossibility. No one could go to the moon in the early nineteen sixties but because that became the goal by the end of that decade there. Was the technology needed to do it. And it's the same thing with training tough to imagine in this. This is a porn allergy for a lot of different reasons but it should have the same kind of emotional urgency that we this is the new Cold War that the the struggle that we're engaging in right now which is really a struggle within ourselves about. Can we live respectful respectfully and sustainably on this planet as a species and individuals? That's the new Cold War and it's urgent and.

"Here Rangers earth ranger, Emma here employed, you I have a treat for you today. We're going to present an episode from our friends at the tumble podcast. It's all about bats tumble podcast is a science podcast for kids. And every episode tells a fascinating story of science and discovery if you're looking for great podcasts, the whole family can enjoy track tumble. We think both parents and kids guaranteed to learn something, new smart and fun. And personally, I'm a huge fan. So without further ado, here's the episode. Hi, I'm Lindsay and our Marshall. Welcome to tumble the show where we explore stories of science discovery today. We're headed to the bat cave. You mean the place where Batman and Robin? Hang out waiting for calls about crimes and Gotham city. No, it's way cooler than that. We're going on a field trip to the biggest back Coney in the entire world where we'll meet a bat biologist and find out how bats learn to be bad. One morning this summer. I got up to watch the sunrise on an old ranch outside of San Antonio, Texas. But there was one element of the sunrise. You can't see or hear anywhere else in the world. That sound is wind passing over millions of bat wings. So this is the beginning of when the bat start to rain down in the morning. That's real life bat women's lash bet biologist Jessica dryer, I met her around six AM near the entrance to Bracken cave, which is home to fifteen million Mexican free tailed, bats fifteen million bats. Yeah. It's the largest concentration of mammals on the planet when you are standing by the cave, and you look up into the sky pretty much as far as you can see upwards. You'll just see these little dots appear out of the sky, and they'll just drop straight down. And they've been clocked at about forty miles an hour dropping into the cave. And so I mean, literally, thousands of bats will be raining down over you coming back into the cave, and it is one of the most cool otherworldly experiences. You'll ever. Have. It was like being in some sort of secret bat world, but what made it even more special was that this huge cloud of bats was made up only of mothers and their babies too. Big moms group. So we're approaching that point right now or the sun is starting to rise and more bats are starting to come in from a night of feeding are we going to get pooped on? Yeah. Yeah. If you're standing close enough to the cave. Yes. You will get some rain some urine rain and some poop landing on your head. Hope you brought your bat raincoat or should I say hoop coat? I actually don't have one. This is so incredibly amazing where else can you see this kind of thing not many places in the world. And you know, it doesn't seem to matter. How many times you've seen it at always blows your mind? Jessica seen it a lot all summer. She's been camping outside the cave in every night. She's up between two AM and nine AM catching bats. And that's what I've come to see wait. We catching bats dislike grabbing them out of the air like. How and why let's talk about why? The point of this whole project that I'm working on is to figure out. What's the transition? Looks like when a baby bat goes from drinking only its mother's milk to learning how to catch its own bugs. And then finally feeding itself entirely on books that catches itself. In other words, she's trying to figure out how that babies get weaned from their mommies. That's something we do is human babies, except you know, we don't start eating bugs. It's usually fruit or something avocado. Yeah. But so well, this is a delightful time for humans to spread you know, food all over their faces. This is actually one of the most difficult times in a young bats life. So you're a young bat, you're still growing you're trying to figure out how to fly how to echo locate. How to catch bugs all of this is happening at the same time, and your milk supplies that you're getting fed are decreasing. And so you are expending a ton of energy trying to learn how to be about. And you're the energy. That's coming in is decreasing. So Jessica's goal is to figure out how that process actually works and to do that she has to catch a lot of bats. So we're approaching the mouth of the cave right now. It's a quick hike from the viewing area where I met Jessica to the bat catching spot, and we really just stand right in front of the opening of the cave right in the. Middle because the bats when they're dropping down into the cave from the sky, they sort of aim for the the middle top of the cave. And so that's where the most bats, aren't it gives us our best chance of catching them. So I'm with my technician his name is Harry, and he has the butterfly net. And so he's just going to go ahead and stick the butterfly in that straight up into the air, and he doesn't even have to move. It catch bats with a butterfly net. Like, there's not a special baton at the bat just this circle floating in the air in the fly right into it already caught about and it's been about a split second that he's had the net in the air. So he just reaches end with his hand. And he's wearing a baseball glove or a golf glove. It's just a thin leather gloves to protect himself from that bites. And you might have heard that on the Mike. He just drops the bat into one of the little paper bags that. I'm holding open for him. And so I fully the paper bag over a close it up with clothes pin. And I write the time of capture on the bag. And so it is six fifty two. So there are bad bags. Can you get those at target? You actually can they're like regular Brown paper lunch bags the kind. You would bring the school. And then here's the thing after they catch the bats, the put them in a little cooler. This one's for launch. This one's for the bats. Yeah. There's no ace. It's just to carry the bads. He's already got. He just dropped the second bat into the bag six fifty three. So he's got the nut back up in the air. And he's already caught a third bat. So as I watched from about fifty yards away. I could see Jessica in Harriet standing in the swarm of bats raising and lowering the net like they're picking apples or something. All right. So we have ten bats. So we are just gonna go ahead and carry are cooler with our bags full of bats backup to the top of the sinkhole. So that we can work on our data collection. The data collection is the time consuming part to do that we walked back with the cooler too small clearing where there's a little outdoor lab that would just we have this table set up with all of our equipment on it. And this is where we process the bats. So what exactly does it mean to process a bad like they have to fill out a form and make sure they get their social security number, right? No. It means that they're going to go through a series of steps. To collect information about each bat. It starts with Harry weighing them while they're still inside the lunch bag. So once he's done. I just. Ahead and pull out the bat.

Was today's episode is all about the different ways animals communicate some news tuck, some use visuals some new sound and found even you sent or chemicals. Do tell other animals, and humans what there's been key? Like, take my old feline friends or scratch, your I was watching him run around after his toy mouse, and I couldn't help. But wonder what he was thinking. He couldn't tell me, and I couldn't really ask mostly because I can't speak cat Flint times, though. I do understand what she is saying. Like, for instance, when he rubs up against my legs when we're in the kitchen that means or when he jumped onto my lap and nestles my hand that means pet me when he is the hairbrush that means don't even think about it. And when he says. That means I love you so much. You're the light of my life. Okay. Maybe not that last one. But I do understand scratch. One's body language. The we uses touch and some of the sounds. He makes so we are communicating. What are some of the ways your pets? Let you know what they're thinking looks like it's time to investigate animal investigations resigation squad. Let's back to Laura public school and asked him brilliant earth Rangers how they think animals can communicate with us and with each other. So I I was thinking maybe they make a movement will dogs way. Pales hail. Well animals can also kind of dues display that can be type of communication. Duck calling. And so they also use like noise is to communicate my dog can ring bells at the back door if she has to go to the washroom. A kitty rubbing, you means that that you're their friend. Yep. When I'm away. It's the Bing sim buddy else. My dog howls because he misses me and my brother. Good stuff. There are lots of ways animals can communicate with us. And with each other vocal communication is often. The first kind that comes to mind you've already heard a lot of animal calls on the earth Rangers podcast in the past. And you have gotten really good at guessing them. But this time I have got a real stumper for you. Check it out. And. Listen up earth Rangers. We're going to play a sound clip of this very talented creature, and you'll have to guess which animal it is at the end of the episode all reveal this impersonators identity ready here, we go. Yes.

"Pay their Rangers its earth ranger, Emma gear. Okay. The other day when I was out in the field searching fascinating stories for the new season. I'd bumped into a friend of mine safari guide Lawrence from the animal sound safari podcast. He was trying to catch a fish with his bare hands. It didn't really work out Lawrence and his team are podcast friends from Australia. And I think you really like their show animal. Sounds far is all about the weird and wacky stories. We humans have with animals around the world like Roosters saving lives in Portugal or camel, beauty queens in the Middle East. You know, what I think we should take a listen to my favorite episode. It's a story of yet poobah writing warrior, mice in Tibet Google is that all right Lawrence take it away. This is an ABC putt cost. Welcome to animals, sound safari. I'm you'll safari guide Lawrence. It's very mice to meet you, eat safari might take you to a different part of the world to me. A special animal today will be scurrying off to catch up with a quota on your social. And how do we get well in this? Are logical safari Mabille. It's only like the coolest Mabille on the planet. But I did notice it was looking a little ready. So I decided to clean it off a bit. And now it's squeaky-clean today way going to meet a rodent that loves to run up corks and play hide in squeak. Can you guess who it is? It's the mouse. So I've seen my scarring around here and there, but I've never actually had a pet mouse before have you? But I want to know what you already know about this little critter. Myself, quiet smart. And I think mice achie- key and disgusting whenever you see. It's just a blur. And then it goes between you couches and stuff, and you can't see it in my new house to every single time when we move into this like a lot of mice. And then there's some dead. My sometimes disgusting. They can do all the tricks that have tiny legs the ability small, so they can do going to slow spaces. I've been at say Delic disgust noodle. Something good. I wouldn't say they're like fifty and Ida full. Some interesting observations there. Now, let's see what Laura out animal expert has found out. Lawrence debase learns to base. This is Laura I've been here ratting around for facts. You'll jokes are really cheesy today. Laura, actually, I've been spending some time here at base and thinking about mice when it comes to mice us people just concierge to make up L minds OB I pissed all the world's cutest companions. Do. We love them. Like Mickey Mouse. Do they make a scream when they run along the floor. The answer is we feel all of these things about mice. At once this tiny little scarring squeaking ferry animal has had a big effect on him big affect on humans. How what do you mean? I mean, one mouse stealing out cheese. Okay. But when it becomes millions of little mice who become a plague. It's terrifying. These mice can eight their way. Through everything crops and even 'cause talk about a mouse attack. Yeah. These little creed is do have a lot of strength in numbers. This also a long history of mass love in Japan, for example, people kept fancy mice. These were house must that had been dimissed decayed as picks. So your saying that some people think there are too many mice and others want to make more mice. I'm way too confused as little animals have us running a rounding circle. I guess we'll have to make up our own minds on today's safari, then I guess you will speak soon Lawrence over and out. Over and out Laura today where heading to one of the highest spots on the planet to meet our small theory friends where going to two bets. It's in Asia. And it is so beautiful lots of very high mountains. Oh, wait. I just remembered a joke, which is so relevant right now. Ready? What kind of car does a mouse drive? It drives a minivan.

What big spot the fake, which of these is not a real species? A the her ho was be the BAA hoagie snail, St. the sponge of forma square Penske mushroom or d the Ursus Winnie Pusa spare. Wow.

Gers? I can't believe we already done one whole season. Plus a whole series of bonus episodes time flies when you're traveling the globe in search of the coolest stories in wacky Sfax. But the most interesting animals on the planet who knew it's been such a blast. But I have to say my favorite part of being your fearless podcast leader has been chatting with you. And hearing all of your stories and questions, and of course, hilarious jokes. You always kept me on my toes, and I learned so much on my brave and noble pursuit defined all your answers. Sure. Sometimes I got a little more than I bargained for that trip to an article episode one was a doozy. New. The south pole was Cole. But it was always so worth it. Now, let's have a look. Yeah. I.

I love your logo the picture of your podcast with you animals. It's very nice. But I know the Faulk, and I know that there, but I don't know which type the bird is with species. It is. My dad Finks to Turkey. But I don't know. So can you please tell me by? Great question earth, ranger Degen. You've gotta keanae, and I am so glad you asked because that is actually let favorite bird ever. Does. Anyone have any guesses? It's definitely not a Turkey. Here's a hint think of the name for a person that helps handled paperwork and keeps things organized. What's that person called and no mom and dad bird is not the correct answer? Although they certainly deserve a shout out for all their hard work. You guys moms and dads. Okay. But any other guesses? Is a secretary bird. I would have also accepted office administrator bird as a correct answer. Despite what is your name might have you believe this doesn't actually file papers make appointments or do any of the other things secretaries. Do can imagine. There's a huge demand for that on the planes of the Seren jetty. Can I offer you some help streamlining off as? So then why is it called a secretary bird one hypothesis is that it was named for the long feathers on its head that looked like Wilkins another is that it comes from the word secretary meaning hunter bird. These birds are found across most of Africa where they make their homes in grasslands and savannahs they have long legs with some birds standing over tall and a wing span of over six feet. They're black and gray feathers along white tail might sound plane, but this anything by they have piercing raptor is and crest feathers on their head that looks like a sweet mohawk, and as they get older they develop featherless patch of bright, orange yellow skin right behind their beak pretty fancy if you ask me, although they look more like a majestic crane minute skilled hunter secretary birds are actually birds of prey like hawks and falcons they feed on all sorts of creatures like bugs mice and even smaller birds. But there's item on their menu that they favor more than any other snakes. Even Benham is ones like the deadly Mamba.

"Hello and welcome to the earth. Rangers podcast. I three hundred Emma, and I haven't even read ably adorable animals story for you today. Earth rangers. Before we get to our main topic. I want to introduce a brand new quiz Saguenay. It's called true or false. And I think it's name pretty much rid cell. Here's the jingle. True or false, Paul. Okay. Here is your question for today. True or false camels store water in their humps. We knew the Campbell's have big humps on their back that drain camels have to and dromedaries have one. But did they use them to store water? What do you think quick true or false? And the answer. No, they do not. The actually store fat in their homes not water. And while these hums might not Quinta. Campbell's thirst, they're still really useful that that they strip provides the same amount of energy as three weeks worth of food, which come in pretty handy in a desert habitat without much to eat, in fact, as Campbell's go longer and longer without food and use more and more of the fat, their humps, actually shrink isn't that? Interesting. Did you get it? Right. Let's do another one of these at the end of the episode. Earth rangers. You know, winters one of my most favorite times of the year when it's cold outside. Fires a crackling inside definitely gives me a serious case of the warm fuzzies, speaking of warm fuzzies that reminds me I heard the most amazing story the other day and it seriously melted, my heart. You guys wanna hear it? Christian. Of course, you do comes snuggle up with a mug of hot chocolate and prepare for cuteness overload. Our story begins off the coast of northern Quebec. Where researchers were studying a pot of beautiful beluga whales to see how they are being affected by all of the ships passing through their waters. The pod was spotted swimming around in playing with each other having a whale of a time and every look normal until a keen researcher noticed something peculiar one of the whales. Different wasn't as white is friends, and it looked like he had something funny. Growing out of the brunt of his head was this a new species of beluga closely linked to the mysterious and magical unicorn were these Wales evolving into some sort of deep-sea mutants with an amazing ability to play ring toss what was this mystery creature? Researchers continued to track the pot and the eventually realized that this new beluga wasn't a beluga at all it wasn't normal. What in the world was an Arctic mammal doing this bar south with a bunch of beluga, buddy. Best guess is that his nor wall somehow got separated from its family. So it must have pulled Dory. And just kept swimming and swimming in swimming until finally came across a pot of belugas who took him in like one of their own. But the story doesn't end there. Scientists continued to track the whales, and as of this recording the naral has been part of their group for three years now they swim together play together and the narwhal was even spotted blowing bubbles to playfully imitate, his beluga friends. Scientists expert opinion say this is a great example of compassion and openness, can my expert opinion says this is pretty adorable. Thanks for sending in your best animal jokes, by the way.

We're storytime happens. All the time. Today. Our story is called turtle island. It comes from the folklore of the jib wake group of the first nations people of Canada. We developed this episode with our Canadian friends at the earth Rangers podcast, and you'll hear some of their voices, including Leigh Lawson also known as earth ranger, Emma. They'll also here right chase, Rebecca Galarza and Suzie McGrath three voices from another of our fellow kid casts. The puny by Kobe Bryant. So circle round everyone for turtle island. Long long ago. The great spirit known as kitschy Manitou was watching over all the people of the earth. But the ruler of the world was not happy with what he saw. No one was getting along the treated one another so poorly. They argued about who owned what that's my fish. Are you kidding? That was my fish trap. They insulted each other. You're the slowest person I've ever seen. No, your the slowest person I've ever seen. You are. No, you are as they gossiped. Like there was no tomorrow. Can you believe how selfish us he hunted all afternoon on someone else's hunting grounds? Then brought everything back to the village and shared it with his family as if he'd cut it on his own land. It was chaos kitschy Manitou had a strong helper named Thunderbird one day. The great spirit told Thunderbird. Heard. It was time to start over to cleanse the earth and get rid of all this bad energy. But kitschy Manitou wanted those who were good or at least trying to be good to be saved. Thunderbird? Do me this favor lift you'll wings and take flight? Give a tap to all those who are are Moni, and peaceful and tell them to get ready for a big flood urge them to build rafts and boats and prepare to swim one week from today, the great brains will begin to fall so Thunderbird did as she was told a week later. Sure enough, the rains began to fall and fall and fall. Soon. The land was flooded. The people saved by Thunderbirds warnings stayed in their boats and on their rafts once the rain stopped a group of animals climbed up onto a single log in the middle of the water. There was a venturous otter wets up folks that was some rain eager beaver. Sure was what a close one scrappy muskrat. Thank goodness we all survived and wise, turtle who had received some valuable advice from Thunderbird before the flood. Listen if we were. Now that we have made it through the flood. There is one way we can build on that. And. End Thunderbirds says only need is a handful of earth from the bottom of this water that should help us get things going again turtle lifted her wrinkled legs one by one with these stubby legs. It would take me forever to peddle the way down and back again. So I wonder could any of you swim to the bottom grab some of the below and Benito up to this is. I can't utter always raised her hand. I she loved a good challenge, a usual. Ulta. We don't even know how deep this wall to is. Oh, I've got this. I'll be back before you can save two. Shakes of an otter tail author lifted her paw and gave the other animals a high five then she leapt off the log and dove into the water with a splash beaver turtle and muskrat watched otter swim deeper and deeper soon her slender furry body had disappeared completely minutes past then hours, then an entire day the animals were beside themselves with worry until. Well, the good news as I'm back. But the bad news is I couldn't find any earth, I dove again, and again and just never reached the bottom. I'm willing to try one more time, but I'll need to rest first turtle cocked her head to one side. Thank you for trying to. I'm sure I speak for everyone. When I say, I'm glad you're okay. But you need to rest. Let's give someone else a child's. Any takes me me me. Turtle nodded at beaver. Oh beaver. There's no doubt about it. You all a strong swimmer? I sure am. And looking for things is my middle name one leaves twigs unit. I can find it beaver was so excited he slapped his pedal of a tail on the log as it bobbed up and down in the water. He other animals grabbed on with their feet and claws. No, go, right. Me you go get it will do this busy beaver is about to save the world. And with that he flashed a big grin jumped from the log and landed in the water with a splash now as with otter beaver took his time two days later, he returned to the log. And when he did he was breathless and didn't check did. I'm so sorry friends. But I couldn't find any dirt. I must've done dozens of times. But I couldn't find the bottom of the water. Sheesh. How could it be anyway? Turtle gave beaver a smile be. I'm so relieved your who. Right. I don't know how much longer this. Love can keep us afloat move. How much longer the people can live on their offs? And in that bodes not to mention the bugs who have no place to land. We need to figure out something. The group was silent for a moment as they punctured their potential fate. Then suddenly well little muskrat piped up. Maybe I can try muskrat looked at her fellow creatures with hopeful is, but what was she met with? Laughter. In fact, otter and beaver were giggling and snickering heart. They could barely stay on the lawn. That's a good one month. Sure is have you noticed how puny? There's no way you can make it to the bottom of this water. But there was one animal who didn't laugh at muskrats proposal. Instead turtle looked muskrat straight in the eye and smiled musk despite what the other say. I believe you could do this beaver and otter were stunned into silence had turtle lost her mind. But not a second later puny little muskrat took a deep breath and down down down she dove to find some earth.

What's the fastest animal in the world. What's a baby king group called our their dogs that can climb trees do butterflies like to eat butter. These kinds of questions fascinates and together we're gonna find the managers today. We'll start our quest for animal knowledge by investigating the largest land welling carnivore and will also meet a bird that has flippers instead of wings. But first it's time to play, who am I animal guessing game. Here's how it works. We're gonna play sound and you'll have to guess what animal that sound belongs to listen closely. And at the end of this episode, you'll find out if you were right ready. Here we go. Okay. I think I have an idea. We'll play it again for you in a little while, but now it's time for. Okay, close your eyes. And let me take you on a journey to the south pole. The production value on this podcast is amazing. I can feel the Antarctic killed the wind. Today we're talking Bill. Now penguins aren't there average Burke, they have wings, but rather than flying, they use them for swimming. In fact, their wings are basically flippers. This makes them great swimmers, especially when diving underwater. The fastest species the gen two penguin can reach speeds of up to thirty five kilometers per hour. That's about as fast as you going downhill on your bike at top speed. Emperor penguins are the tallest species standing nearly four feet tall. The smallest is the little blue penguin which is about sixteen inches. Wow, they were so cute. I wish you could see them. Actually, you can. You can find some adorable pictures as well as all the other pictures and videos from this episode at earth Rangers dot com. Slash podcast. Own all. There are seventeen species of penguins, and they can only be found in the southern hemisphere around the south pole. That means even though they share similar tastes when it comes to climate penguins and polar bears, literally live on opposite ends of the world from each other, which is funny because that kind of brings me to our next segment. Animal investigations on animal investigations. All right. So a couple of weeks back, we got this phone call here at the earth Rangers headquarters. Let me see. Oh yes. Here. Message. One.

I'll just take my microphone and see who can answer this question around here. Bill, what do you think polar bears are? White has something to do with the snow. No. But I mean, what happens if the jump in the water? Did they turn blue. Christina. Do you think you can help me out? I'm trying to solve a mystery. Do you know why polar bears are white fire polar bears fight? No, I was asking you. I don't know. He, Lisa do you. Polar bears have white coats whether for white is actually clear and their skin is black. What black that didn't really help.
