"Tradition is very lovely. So I want to remind people Pages Christ. Live Thursday October 1st, which is of East Bay. It's a screening of this performance that you did several years ago, which had Michael said Coco Peru and India has a performance by the late Peggy legs off. Usually just not fellatio Alden. She said it's up all the cherries in the film. Can you talk a little bit about Peggy legs? Cuz you know, she was a an extraordinary performer San Francisco and she just passed away. Yeah, I mean Peggy was one of my closest friends and you know aside from heklina. She might be the only performer that I've you know that I've had in my shows consistently, you know, since the nineties, you know, Peggy was in some of our earliest eight shows at midnight mass most famously. She was pangina in our Poulter Christ show which we just do it the bridge and audiences fell in love with Peggy a total scene-stealer and the great thing about Peggy was that she wasn't just an incredible performer on stage with with an insane energy. And you know, when I do the live show with Chad wage Coco, I know Cocoa's very much looking forward to you know, tell telling a story about Peggy that really annoyed Coco and so I'm looking forward to her sharing it it's nice that you could rehearse and rehearse rehearse with Peggy. But then once she was in front of that live audience, she would constantly go Rogue. I mean there was a famous locally famous incidents where at the Castro during our show Girls pre-show. She was playing one of the gnome. He's in this show that I wrote called night of a thousand enemies and so it was all these different people playing Nomi Malone and Shaq. She came out to do the scene at spago with me and just I mean, I mean didn't even I don't think she added a line that was from the script and you know at some point I just took her and I said, are you going to say anything from the script? Like what are we doing it, you know, and I kind of like started yelling at her and the audience was going nuts and you know and and in Canton, Georgia. You know, like I was pissed at her after that. I think didn't talk to her for a little while, but then I would put her in another show because you know, she was brilliant like she totally made the whole package that was people's favorite part of that show, you know, but it all dry line from I'm sure she made it her own. I don't know. I remember the specifics but she see as Matthew, you know was maybe one of the most loving generous special people and she kind of dedicated her work to helping people who needed help. So when she passed she was working for the Shanti project which was created in San Francisco as a non-profit to help primarily gay men, but really anyone who was dying from AIDS and couldn't afford, you know Basics this organization Basic dog. Help people's hands and help them pass with dignity and because of the HIV cocktail Shanti project changed its mission to include anyone who was dying or suffering from a fatal illness. And so Peggy had these incredible clients and she basically said you made the end of their lives better. And that was what she did for work. And you know, if read her a bitchuary if anyone wants to read more about her the Bay Area reporter did a great job of really something her up and one of my favorite Parts is her work with Body Electric which was a group of of queer men who basically offered sexual services to Father queer men who were dying and were no longer considered desirable, you know, by the gay community. So people who had lost a lot of weight people who were very sick people who you know had a job. And Peggy, you know, basically offered her body sexually to these folks and at one point one of the quotes in obituary says, you know, someone says Peggy what did you do today? And she says I just fucked AIDS, you know and know the you know was profound in that way like a very deep thinker and and really put her money where her mouth is so dead. So people see her on stage and she was a big clown but just know that behind the scenes this person. Did you know God's work. I mean truly do you ever get a chance to talk her about her experience in the grew up with people? Yes. Oh, yeah, we would would she do the songs for us. And yes, so she was a member of up with people which you know, you should you look it's kind of like a cult of performers. See what the member is described it as a cult and she had to escape really it's one of my favorite quotes of all time. Yeah. Yeah. It's a great cult. Yeah. No, I love talking to her about that. I mean, I'll tell you one of the best performances we ever did at midnight mass was a a stage show where we did a parody of Annie and you know, it was about a little girl couldn't get. Too because she was a drag queen and so we see his he yes exactly back in those days and leather Daddy Warbucks comes in adopt certain jobs near the whole week. We're the whole story. But but Peggy did that she did not tell me she was going to do which was smart cuz she just did it was dead. Where the show she took off her tights and her panties so that when she came out on stage as The Little Orphan and did cartwheels across the stage you saw her well and not injure junk flopping around, you know in the audience just went crazy for that natural chatter down there. She she was a ginger. Yes down there so long red curly wig carpet mats, right? So what were you when you from the audience watching it or the side know I was playing mister hannegan and I was on the side of stage kind of going. Oh my God. Oh my God, is she what the audience was going nuts in this very Peggy way where you had to figure out what was happening so often, you know, oh my God, what a special man. It's a hard cock Farah. Yes, exactly. And you know, that probably was the lyric I don't remember but knowing my stupidity job. And Peggy co-wrote that show with me we wrote it together. So is this on film? I'm not sure but we did I remember we've recreated it for the ten year anniversary. They that we did that number and John Waters was in the audience and he loved that busy. You know, he said it was there cuz it's pretty perverse to have a grown man dress up as an Annie and then you see his dick flopping around. Yeah Ginger pubes. Yeah played Sandy wage hike Lena now, it was a stuffed animal. We actually Target when when.

"Sweet. Sweet. Amanda Beard is famous for being a lesbian. Right evil add went on to do gay porn and they ask for Serandon who plays the lead vampire he's the vampire he was he played in dog day afternoon, which is about the bank robbery to pay for someone's. Gender reassignment. Surgery Hammy Susan Rice. Brother. And in the movie itself I mean he has a male familiar and they are roommates in. It's very like you know homoerotic when when Amanda Beer. So you know Amy Peterson and Charlie brewster come into the house. He's like who are these very attractive young people like he's like In both of them? Course as empire is a clear and like right around that time too. I was followed. His Post on facebook is about riding McDowell, and then one of my friends who's older China and he's like Roddy McDowell is rumored to have the biggest cock and brought in in Hollywood. I was just like. You know because most of his characters are kind of very kinda like unassuming kind of army maybe and my friend says the I actually saw it and I was just like Oh my God tell me and he said that he was at an AIDS benefit with Roddy McDowell and ride McDowell is at the urinal. So he went to the urinal next to have and he try to sneak a little peek and. God He was just like you know he was famous for his big cock. So if you're at a urinal and you have a big COP, you don't mind standing six seven inches away. 'cause you're just like, Hey, as long as you've got, you might as well show it and he's just like and enough he was packing some heat down there and how old was. This time probably sixty or something seven eighty who knows grandpa the giant The. Flawless And you know I appreciate Rodman dollars generosity that you know. Overzealous Fan would want to see his generous packages he was married. You know, but he was you rumored to be gay. He. has never come out of the calls then well, he's dead now. So you ever did was out for some reason I guess I don't think. So it's so I. Okay. Everyone knew it was gave what am I other favorite movies that I saw that I see that I watched him into recently and it just came back on Amazon was dead of winter and he plays the sidekick to like this evil doctor psychiatrist and. Mental patient and he's he's evil in that as well. That's fun while he's not even fright night and that I was told I was like I, think it was like this I was under the spell of about Roddy McDowell is big Dick because you know I also. He was in planet of the Apes. Cornelius. So like something you feel like you grew up with, then you're also like there's something a little queer about him. So you kind of identify with him a little bit and then I watched an episode, which is also an Amazon with commercials for some reason with McMillan and wife, which was the TV series with rock Hudson who plays the detective and his wife is Susan Saint James. Who's like twenty years younger than him? She's like a little nymph compared to his mature forty something rock Hudson. So has the good looks and then they're they're housekeeper is Nancy Walker. who was the mom road to Rhode is? Hard drinking and wise cracking. So it ha- he's the police commissioner in San Francisco, right and so. It's kind of setting that. Queer city his wife, who's twenty years younger than him this wisecracking made and he goes over to the to the to Scotland for one episode because that's where his family was He would go there every summer and his cousin is the new laird of the castle. It's Roddy McDowell and so when he assumes the Position is being the layered. Toast was. They toasted him by saying up the McMillan and you see like the look at everybody's face. But then there's also like there's a little innuendos between rock Hudson and Roddy McDowell. All the time like in this kind of thing, there's like, definitely if you're queer person and you knew Roddy McDowell was gained you new rock Hudson was gay you'd be laughing. One point in time, he's wearing a kilt in the wife was just like, let me fix your ham for you darling your skin, your skirt, and he gives her. Evil Look like don't out me, bitch. That's funny. Yeah. It was a real treat to watch. I remember the Nancy Walker also, what does she know? She was the quicker. For Bounty Yeah. And I guess when she left the show, they said that she was going out east to open up a diner, which is a reference to that. Oh I didn't realize that. But she. On Alice it was a big mouth. word surname. Bizarre. From lids though are now what is it the bug lose? What is her name? Now I'm like I have no idea what you're talking about. Are you talking about polly? Holliday No. She's an actress, the bug, A. Bug with Martha Raye Martha Raye played Nell. Mother in Alice TV show but a lot of people mentally confused Martha Raye for some reason with Nancy Walker because they both had they were Kinda like. Those kind of actresses in the eighties that became spokespersons for brands on daytime television. So you had Patricia Neal for Anniston. You hadn't Ansi Walker for bounty and you had Martha Raye for polit. He's like, oh. Of course you had Lauren Bacall for high point coffee. I had no idea. Yeah. They were up for my time quite frankly. Ability Life was like an repeats Martha Raye actually replaced Nancy. Walker. On McMillan and wife she did. When she when she went to open up the cafe and they killed off the wife after she had two pregnancies but they never had a child and Margaret Hamilton was the spokesperson for another Coffee House Maxwell House and so part of it is I think like the gay guys in advertising agencies like took the the divas of the gay icons at the time and made them into brand spokespersons because there were probably hard up for work and it was easy money the other thing that was weird. Me Out of the day the other thing that was worried about this McMillan and wife episode was that took place in Scotland even though it was obviously filmed in California and riding McDowell's character would have this this fake monster like lock next Monster Lake. And there was always room like you could only see it You know at twilight, which in Scotland, they called the gloaming. So like you see it all in the gloaming, and then in the what was it in nineteen ninety seven, there was that film made for HBO The about in the Gloaming where the lead character was dying from AIDS and had to come home and live with his family, and then it was like. Rock Hudson probably I think he died that same year right? They're like ninety seven wait? No, he was eighty nine right. I think. So yeah. So it was kind of A. Little Spooky. Telling you guys went down and Roddy McDowell. I will go. For a big cock clearly. which movies are you gonNa Watch for the Halloween season do you re watch any favorites anything up or you just kind of like sometimes ya? Yeah sometimes but you know I kind of play it by ear and see what mood. I'm in you know like I'm trying to think of things that have seen recently. Did you guys see the border I have not seen it? No I don't think. So good. It was on Hulu Somehow I. missed it. When it came out I thought I was like. Yes. Patrols yes..

"You think about you wearing a curly? Susan Sarandon wig? She said I'll do it. I'll do whatever the show you know, and it was basically like that. And of course when the ship was hitting fan and the show-off falling apart as all of my shows do your show that the show literally fell apart though. Didn't it? Like part of the scenery fell down directly? Yeah. That was a nightmare won't be talking about that long as part of the screen like the screening part of my agreeing to to put these shows online is that that I want to turn them into their own event because I don't think wage screening videos of Live Events is satisfying. I mean, you know in the last you've got a bazillion dollars, even then, you know, the best parts of Truth or Dare for example are the behind-the-scenes parts, right? So, you know, I'm really focusing on trying to create new content and one of the reasons I wanted to start with The Witches of East Bay was because of you know wage Loved how Coco was basically trusting me. And and then there was that point where I don't think she would trusted me anymore. I think we had talked about this before like Coco is the type of person when she performs you know, she took up there it's a cabaret-style show. She talks to the audience. She she does her songs, but it's all you know, it's rehearsed. There's very little improvisation involved in it at all. And oh, yeah, you put her in one of your Productions. We're just you know, it's like Helter Skelter land, right? I mean, it's a free-for-all. I mean, it's not the waist theater should ever be done. It is a total, you know, it's a total chaotic race to the finish line and we never really get there, you know, like the girls fly into town, you know on a Wednesday and no matter how much prepping my crew has dead. And if you don't have the talent, but for three days before a major event, you know, there will be mistakes, you know, things will not work out and I mean that show in particular like you know them. Meaning of the show I had to fire someone very dramatically, you know, I well you'll find out at the screaming. I want to save some of it for the screaming, you know wage. But yeah, there was a big drama that happened that morning and you know, I mean the crew member or it was yeah, was remember it was a big big part of the show actually the family that we were counting on that this particular crew member it was their responsibility and they still weren't able to deliver and you know, we got there for Tech and things still aren't working and I fired the person and sent them away and had to come up with a plan B and you know the cast were all staring at me like she's losing her mind and you know, and so you'll get all that song information cuz like if you were in the audience that night you didn't know what was supposed to happen, you know, but it'll make sense when you see the show and so The Witches of East Bay is dead. On Thursday, October 1st or kicks off Halloween season at 6 p.m. Pacific Time 9 p.m. Eastern time at Patriot fries. Life of right. I have it on video and I've seen it and I really enjoy watching it. Yeah. Yeah. I have my ways. Oh, that's right you do have and and I have to say it's these I'm so glad you're making these available to the public because they really are a testament to this fantastic Community you have off your of course incredible creativity and humor and wisdom and play writing skills. I think it's just a really Delight that you managed to document these shows and now you're going to be able show them and and you know talk about them. Well, you heard knew that we were documenting them for a time like this my God, thank God you did I guess. Yeah. No, I mean, yes. Absolutely. I mean, you know, it's sad to me is the reason they're so well-documented from the past ten years is because the first you know, ten fifteen years of stuff in San Francisco was not well documented, you know, so I think back on all those you know shows I did with heklina, you know at the stud or you know, early midnight mass shows and think like some of them even have pictures for or that none that I'm aware of, you know, they just live in our minds. So that's my that's why we started doing this podcast. It was we were just like we were like right in the same boat as you were doing very similar shows here in Chicago and I was just like I put so much energy time and money into these shows and at the end it's just a happy memory. I'm Foster Sahara photographer took some of the shows, you know, and it was about $100 and stuff back then to shoot a show and people like, why are you spending $100 to shoot the show? I'm like so that you know in ten years there's photos and then sometimes you get these photos from photographers. And they were absolutely crap and you're like you spend $100 on parents out of focus finding good Event Photographers is harder than people saying oh for sure, you know some of the best photos of me in my early days and drag were Jason Smith took him and thank God, you know, he was there for all those things and and you know, it's like Jason Smith. Yes these Jake from Jake and that's like to be the most common name I've ever heard Jason Insanity. What, Well Jason Jason Jason award-winning like how many packs he actually owns Jason Smith, So that's that's actually quite impressive. You know, he was an early adapter. Yeah. He he actually Jason and I converted one of the office ke newspapers into digital at a time where everything was like cut and paste you were definitely ahead of the game. I mean for all all those people like myself who were like internet will never amount to shit off. Idlewild like you really like you believe all the guess we I don't I don't know if you were been some of the most generous and dedicated and insightful and fun to have on the show think and I would say that you certainly valued the internet way before you guys probably inside home if it wasn't going like if you were totally off the Record and it wasn't, you know, something that could get you in trouble. I know that deep down inside what you would say is that I'm your favorite guest of all time. I would say I'm actually, you know, I'll put it this way somebody is writing a really nice article about us, but we can't talk about it may lead to some really amazing things and they asked me to put together a list of 10 podcasts. Of all time I've done and I was like peaches has to be on that list and it was really really really hard to pick one show and I was just like, what do the one where we talked about? How how dry Queens can try not to smell you love that? Why do love that one? It was so fun with you know, and it was in my mind. It was like when we recorded thought I'd just been around a drag queen. You just read it for Breeze. And so it was really it was really bothering me. Thanks for free is on top of Bo and you're just like I think a lot of going to be like, it's Chanel Number 5. They don't get that drag. It's very complicated that it is involving all these costumes your kind of like the Glamorous Las Vegas showgirl version of a Disney theme park Scott. Oh, yeah and expect you to be superhuman. It's like how do you wear all that shit, you know, including keeping, you know the heat from your head, you know, like is unable to escape off. And you know not expect us to sweat or sink or you know, it's been impossible, you know themselves are hard to hard to clean properly wage or well you could just install a little like fan inside the pig. I don't know if I'm doing a job and I spaz now I know people who've done ice packs, you know, where they strapped themselves. Does it work. Did.

"Friends. And it was almost like we called each other's bluff like she said that to me and then I called her, you know a little while later said, what do you think about the movie the which is twist and she said, I love it, I'll do it. You know. So it was it was one thing after the next and then it was me saying and what do you think about you wearing a curly Susan Serandon wig she said I'll do it. I'll do whatever the show you know and it was basically like that of course when the ship was hitting the fan and the show was falling apart as all of my shows do. Your show that show literally fell apart though didn't it like part of the scenery fell down. That was a nightmare we'll be talking about that. As part of the screening. Part of the screening part of my IRA. Agreeing to to put these shows online is that that want to turn them into their own event because I don't think screening videos of live. is satisfying I mean you know unless you've got a bazillion dollars even a you know it the best parts of truth or dare for example, are the behind the scenes parts, right. So know I'm really focusing on trying to create new content and one of the reasons I wanted to start with the witches of East Bay was because of you know I loved how Coco was basically trusting me and then there was that point I don't think she she trusted me anymore Talked about this before Coco is the time when she performs, you know she's up there. It's a cabaret style show she talks to the audience she she does her songs, but it's all you know it's rehearsed. There's very little improvisation involved in all and you put her in one of your productions where he just you know it's like helter skelter land, right? I mean, it's it's a free for all I. Mean it's not the way theater should ever be done. It is a total. You know it's a, it's a total. Chaotic race to the finish line and we never really get there. You know like the girls fly into town on a Wednesday and no matter how much prepping my crew has done if you don't have the talent but for three days before a major event, you know there will be mistakes you know things will not work out and I mean that show in particular like. The morning at the show I had to fire someone very dramatic way. Well, you'll find out. At the screaming, I want save some of it for the screaming you know. Yeah there was a big drama that happened that morning and you know a crew member or it was. It was a big big part of the show of actually the finale that we were counting on that this particular crew member, it was their responsibility and they still weren't able to deliver you know we. Got There for tack and things weren't working and I fired the person and sent them away and had to come up with a plan B., and you know the cast for all staring at me like she's losing her mind and you know and so you get all that information. Because if you were in the audience that night, you didn't know what was supposed to happen you know. But it'll make sense when you see the show and so. These bay is going to be on Thursday October first kicks off Halloween season at six, pm. Pacific. Time Nine PM Eastern time at Peaches Christ dot live. Right, I have it on video and I've seen it and I really enjoy Owen Yeah. I have my ways. Oh that's right you. Have to say it's These I'm so glad you're making these available to the public because there really are a testament to this fantastic community. You have your, of course, incredible creativity and humor and wisdom and play writing skills. Eight. It's just a really delight that you manage to document these shows, and now you're going to be to shell them and and you know talk about him well. I knew that we were documenting them for a time like this Mike Odd Thank God. You did I guess yeah. No I mean yes absolutely. I mean, you know it's sad to me is the reason they're so well documented from the past ten years is because the first you know ten fifteen years of stuff in San Francisco was not well documented. I think back on all those, you know shows I did with Heck Lena you know at the stud or early midnight mass shows and like some of them, we don't even have pictures for or none that I'm aware of you know they just live in our minds. So that's. Why we started doing this podcast was we weren't just like we were like right in the same boat as you were doing very similar shows here in Chicago and I was just like I put so much energy time and money into these shows and at the end, it's just a happy memory. Photographer to shoot some of the shows and it was about one hundred dollars and stuff back then. To shoot a show on people like why are you spending a hundred dollars to shoot the show I'm like so that you know in ten years, there's photos and then sometimes you get these photos to. Photographers and they were absolutely crap and you're like you spend one hundred dollars. Out of focus, finding good event photographers is harder people saying you know for sure you know some of the best photos of me and my early days and drag were Jason Smith took him and thank God. You know he was there for all those things and and you know Jason. Smith yes. The from Jason. It'd be the most common name I've ever heard. Jason. Common Well Jason. Jason.

"Hello. Hi, this is Peaches Christ yesterday. What's your scariest movie night scariest to say, what's your favorite? Scary movie? Oh, well, that's a Nightmare on Elm Street and Thursday our one I had a really scary movie. It's called the selfie on my phone on my God, and I take my clothes off and I look into it and I see myself growing old. Oh, oh, I used to be an atheist. But then I realized was a sex god. But now I'm a sex god and Decline and nobody wants to worship at my temple because I've been stuck at home during covid-19 teen no one loves me anymore. Not even myself. How are you doing today Peaches? I I was doing fine a moment ago. You're not sure you just that I don't even know. What was that? I'm not sure while we're kind of like thinking about cuz you are you have your opening your your your bath salts clearing cobwebs and showing the audiences what they are throughout the world. What they really want is some of your Productions that you've done over the years you're doing The Witches of East Bay wage, which yeah, you know play on The Witches of Eastwick which kind of deals with women of a certain age how they deal with like I didn't even connect that that's what you were doing wage. She just so used to hear that all the time. It's like I thought that he would just like, you know any the average gay guy going through his unique life crisis. Well, that's an interesting thing. Right? Cuz we live in a consumer society and we've sort of been making money or being taught or whatever to do not Embrace aging and to look at the aging process as something to be feared sometimes to be abhorred emphasis on the horn. Yes, when you're eighteen, they'll tell you when a 26 nobody wants you and then you're in your twenties like when you're over thirty. Nobody wants you then in your early thirties, like forty s death if you're gay and then comes, you know the goal and then you get those ages and you just like I'm just fiercely as I was back then yeah. Yeah, I mean in some in ways, you know, I would argue that maybe your fear sir. I think that well cultural. Yep. It's it's not in every culture. Is there sort of this idea of Growing Old being a bad thing, but it's definitely an American idea for sure or Western idea. And then I think if you're a queer, especially a game man, you know, we adopt so many of the worst parts of you know, misogyny, you know, and so we apply that to each other and and then yeah, I think for a lot of queer men sadly, you know, it's a real thing. It's a real problem. Well it even like in talking about intergenerational relationships or even like, you know, if I you you are somebody who is above the age of thirty and you're at a bar and you start flirting with somebody, you know, this is the thing is like a lot of these twenty-year-old twinks are hit me up on the back up apps but out in public there are like there goes all bounced over and you are sending me your dick pics last week. Are you talking dirty little secrets wage? You go out in public. Wow, wearing a mask anymore. You know, I'm really loving the mask culture because finally people's have to see my face I can went right they just don't even see it. Well, it's like the it's like a facelift and in some way I go to kissing. Goodbye. Nobody likes, you know your thoughts saying you're giving into those those ideas of you know, there's negative ideas about aging this is about like, you know, cuz four years we've heard Middle Eastern women saying like I really like hiding my face off and it feels very comfortable people. I care of them. They're have to stare at me. Yes. Yes. I wear the mask sunglasses like Ray-Bans with mirrors on them and not and sometimes even a little Bike Helmet or a hat. So I'm basically just a robot out perfect on everybody just staring at you know staring at anything. I want without repercussions great about log. And you're like totally like staring at a guy is like when you're wearing the masks he can't see when you're like licking your lips underneath the mash your oh, yeah, I'm literally drooling mean once in a while my life my mask, you know, the wetness comes through but otherwise, they haven't they know and this is this good for straight men to know this like when you're not when you're a straight guy and you think you're too cool for the mass wage all of us gays wearing masks. We're just perving on you so hard so, you know like with that information like I'm at the gym and I see this guy and I'm just like, oh my God, he's so fat. He's just like, oh my route your way and I'm just like yes in the way my heart. Yeah, it's true. Yeah, you're right. You're right now that we should we should probably get back to The Witches of East Bay cuz how generous of you to open the show with such an amazing plug off. For this upcoming online screening that we're doing and it's true that that show in a way was about I mean, I talked to cocoa and chat about the fact that we were young older queens and that that's what the show was going to be about. So you're right that is what the that show is about. It's about is this all there is kind of thing, but they ever since I'm known Coco Coco Scat Pack has been this cool hip tell it like is, you know on T in the Bronx who's like doesn't always been an old lady for like thirty years and this Thursday, we all got dressed up and dragged. I think at least for me when I was in my early twenties, it was like, hey, you can be whoever you want to be for the rest of your life. As long as you can get a shake in wig like cocoperez, and they still make it. How did you get cocoa to like actually change wigs cuz you know, she's wearing like she has dementia Jan Brady, you know, I guess guess we this was the first show we had ever done together and we had been in some you know, shows together doing Drag Queens of Comedy and she passingly said like why haven't you ever asked me to be in one of your shows and I was like, well, I mean you never wage just can't imagine you saying yes to being one of my shows. I think you're too good for it, you know, and I was being completely serious like I worship you. I'm a huge fan. I mean, for real, you know, I'm just in all of her talent and yeah, we were this is towards the beginning of are becoming closer friends and it was almost like we called each other's Bluff, like she said that to me and then I called her, you know a little while later and I said, what do you think about the movie The Witches of Eastwick and she said I love it. I'll do it, you know, so it was one thing after the next and then it was you know, Saying and what do.

"Everyone John Wartime here. Sports illustrated tennis podcast. Everyone is doing well our guest. This week is severe Panja. Who is a professor at the University of California Santa Barbara teaches creative writing Asian American literature, and also more importantly for our purposes has just written a terrific tennis book members only which tennis figures prominently both as a plot device in a metaphor I. I absolutely devour this book. We will link it link the Amazon page on our show page, but this is a fun conversation talking about tennis talking about writing talking about tennis as a storytelling device full disclosure Samir I share a publisher and publicist, so I want to dispense with that, but this was a really fun conversation a fun book timely book. I think people will love book members. Only it's called, and here is a on enjoyable half hour conversation here we go. I start off by congratulating him. I really you know people. Binge Watch TV shows I. binged dread members only and. Plowed through edited, it did not disappoint. Grad seriously congrats I. Mean it's it's great. It's it's really. SMART, and funny, and I thought we'll talk about this later. I thought very topical, and it's also does. Does tennis right so you succeeded on many dimensions as far as I'm concerned. CONGRATS I. I will say that you saying it did tennis right? Is means particularly lot because you know. I think. In terms of different kinds of readers, right, there's there's. Specific details if I'm reading something in if somebody gets a core detail wrong, which is not that big of a deal? It can be. It can break it for me. You know I'm Mike. Okay I can't do this anymore. Right I can't go down this road trusting this person and so I'm really happy to hear that I mean. Tennis is a big. I love the sport and we can also talk about that as well, but so that's great. Thank you I I. I wrote it with a certain kind of. Kind of propulsion in mind, right and I kinda wanted to be read that way, and then hopefully there other things. You know that you can go back to, or you can think about in ways in terms of how Raj operates in this in this book that can take a little bit more consideration, but you know in these in. These days. I want to read a book quickly. And I think in some ways I wanted to write a book that people could read quickly as well. The I say it's your talk. Not I feel like you're talking about a nonfiction book and everything's on the table. Right everything the next serve I feel I. Don't know what lessons You'd like me to take I don't know how much we can reveal here. Well, let's start you. To your character, so let's let's start there To to tennis fans, it is not spelled R. A. J. as your character is, but you know Raj is a name of relevance. Tennis fans You, you mentioned the details. You Got Right now. I think you're absolutely right. I think the second somebody writes about tennis of calls. A rally volley! We've got issues right? You did not do that this either was a studious research or else. You really have some grounding in tennis. What's what's your background sport? Yeah, you know so I so we came. We moved to America when I was eight years old. I lived in Bombay until I was eight owes a huge cricket fan. I played a ton of cricket. And we moved into A. Kind of an apartment complex when we arrived here and and. There was a tennis court. Right next to it where we're well. This was in the East Bay. This was east of. Glee in in in a in a city called San Pablo. and. You know. I think when I was like nine or ten years old, there was a man who would always come there in hidden serves like ten down the t ten out. Why ten down the T ten out wide, and I just started going down there and Collecting balls for him. And this! I think a you know him and his wife. They didn't have kids, and you know in a lovely gesture. At some point. He showed up with a tennis racket. And kinda showed me how to shift the grip for forehand and backhand, which was my first official lesson in the game and so. I so I started playing there. I played through high school and you know. and. Then I stopped playing the game for years. I stopped playing college. I didn't play it in Graduate School You know I moved my wife and I moved to new. York For five years where I had my first academic job. Getting Court New York as you know, is not an easy task, and so I have always kind of played the game, and then also I just love the game the pro game as well right, which is that I wasn't quite. Aware of the Borg McEnroe Connors era, but I think I really started watching you it with lendl real under at Burgh those are the I think in Michael Chang, so that was kind of mid might time said mid eighties moment. And so I've been kind of a fan of the sport in that way throughout the time and then. You know it's a great middle aged sport like I, love. I love the sociology of it. The player talking yeah. Yeah Yeah. Yeah, so in both of those things, so that's why I'm just. It is as a kind of as a spectator as a player It's a one sport that I kind of gravitate towards the much.

GonNa do during his time. you know the one fortunate part about it as being an artist, I've been locked in the studio painting new paintings and working with different ideas and working with RAF and his team Carlos Costa to figure out new and inventive ways to drive in bill business and do things that we are currently not used to doing. So it's been. It's been a wild interesting two months of figuring that out. What's your interest level tenants? Do you play? How did you get into this? US Fascinating I'm actually one of those weird concoctions of I'm an artist athletes so I was a big time athlete. As a kid played eight years of Baseball's all-star in baseball play basketball. I was all star in basketball. Basketball led me. Tennis I was a basketball player. Freshmen in highschool and kind of got into. An argument with my coach basically just decided to leave basketball. And I picked up a tennis racket and I had just. It was a natural thing for me to do. And before I knew I, had a professional coach, and my coach was played played on the tour and played John McEnroe. He saw me play and before I knew I was training with some of the best players in northern, California. And so I played high school career. played college and I still train. I still training a tribe while afford the pandemic I was out there every week. just started getting back out there about a week ago when they released the courts, but tennis is definitely in. My jeans had so much, so that my son plays college tennis. I'm actually had a scholarship to Chapman University as I used to play and made teams freshman, and he's also coach now, too, so and even though he still in college, but yes, definitely in my blood and strange enough. Raw Molly the owner of art encounter. That is my distributor. It turns out the way that we got this deal with him. Was He was tennis player in his whole family's sex players, and when he saw the original painting that I did have all sprouted in hadn't seen them in years we. She just freaked out. Saying Oh my God. This is unbelievable what I told him. I have five hundred signed by the dog himself. Personally and myself and we did a whole thing back in the day. When we have this painting, he's like. Nope, that's it. We're going to do something, so it's been a very unique tennis story all the way around. I can honestly say I think it's been a while that I've actually heard someone say that. They're both an athlete an artist. When was When was the moment where you're figured out like? Wow, I actually have a knack for this whole painting thing. That was easier. I I was asking rg by the time. I was five six seven years old. My parents had me in special school. Special Art schools and You know it was something that they noticed when I was one years old that I can draw and I'd actually kept first painting I drawing than I ever did when I was one and They just knew my dad was artist. He never followed that trade. Actually went into corporate business, but my dad is very artistic used to do paintings. So I kind of had that gene in me. And I just knew at a very early age. That was what I was going to do my life. We hear so much about young athletes figuring out their skill set at a young young age at like three, four five, and to see that art is very similar as interesting for those who don't know the story Bruce is the owner of Salzburg Media Fine Arts, a broad range of professional sports team three. Of National. International athletes he got three D work of Rafa. Nadal for those are not watching this on video. It's behind him, but it's also going to be a link in our episode information. He's also got artwork of Muhammad. Ali Michael Jordan Prince. Fielder Dirk Nowitzki. Irk Nowitzki I'm not a basketball person. I'm sorry. Most importantly. It's the tennis painting that we're really here to talk about, and it's Three D. art, so I want to start with what is three art. What's the process for making an artwork like this before we get into the Roth story? This was very unique idea. That I came up with lean back in nineteen, ninety five, I was doing my very first art show at the New York our next on back in those days that was the largest art show in the world. Everything was painter of any place anywhere was there exhibiting in was at the Jacob Javits in New York City, so as massive and I back then you the jury to get in so jury to get an shared a booth with another artist, and when I was there, all brought was abstract paintings on canvas, because that's what I was painting at the Time Big Love Klee Miro. Picasso, that was kind of backroom basically, and we've been in the show for five days and insult. Damn painting and I told. My My. Fiance at the time in my mom was there with me. I gotTa Take I. Just need to go walk the show and I said. You know if I'm going to do anything in my life I've got to figure out how to do something that no one has ever done and for some reason and it's time. My Dad owned art gallery. Very very successful one back in San Francisco. East Bay and I just something popped in my head. work on glass. Just a glass on the second I got home I started Phil around layers of plexiglas and low and behold. That's how it was born I. Just we just figured out how to frame it how to do the whole thing in. One, doing where usually as an artist you paying on one level is a canvas most most of the time. You're just doing everything on that level of what I wanted to do with cigarette how to take a look at an image of a painting in break it up and put different parts of each of painting on glass, and then use spicer's to separate them, so there's space in between each layer. You get that natural three d look with no gimmicks, no anything no lighting. It's all based on different layers and different perspectives, so that's how it was born and. The risk on history.

"Today we have part two of our back to Back Bay area music series. Last week we had the privilege of speaking with Adam Dubin director of murder in the front row the San Francisco Bay Area Thrash Metal Story this week. We take a look at the other side of what I think is the same coin. One of the coolest elements of thrash was that in its DNA existed elements of punk many of the big thrash acts have covered punk song or to Megadeath excellent anarchy in the UK comes to mind Plus Metal Mike from angry. Samoans is credited as the guy who coined the term heavy metal in the first place in a review for Rolling Stone magazine back in Nineteen seventy-one. You see what I mean here so at almost the same time at that this thrash genre was being invented here in the bay area. The punk scene was also flourishing in fact punk has a few years on thrash But it also takes longer to mature into the mainstream For better or worse. So it's our is longer and may actually be a little more influential overall but thrash metal definitely has the record sales today. Have the pleasure to get deep into the punk side of things with Corbett. Redford director of the fine documentary on the subject called. Turn it around the story of East Bay punk released in two thousand seventeen so it can be found on Amazon prime video or if you like please go to East Bay punk dot com to see all the options on where to catch the pick so like murderer in the front row. This is really a love letter to the scene and not just a list. A bands and the usual rise and fall storyline That we get in most rock. Docs there is a lot of love and authentic passion for those times and Corbett was there and he was obviously picked because he has the same love as he did as an eighteen year old in the scene he was tapped by the guys from Green Day who acted as executive producers And all three are in the film. But that's just a start is not East Bay punk starring Green Day. It's far more than that in fact and almost three hours just about everyone who had a role from the beginning at the Mugabe Gardens early in the city to the Mecca of East Bay punk the all ages nine twenty-four Gilman in Berkeley which is still open are pretty much included in the film from the Dead Kennedys in the avengers. All through to know affects offspring. Yes yeah I know. They're from Orange County but they played gilman a bunch of times rancid and everyone in between Corbet hits them all along with seniors and characters you may or may not know but will love hearing from and perhaps are the real stars of this picture. Plus it is narrated by Pucker legend himself. Iggy pop how can you go wrong? It's authentic and thorough. It's a great end full explanation of the scene that is still thriving minus the pandemic over in the East Bay. Hopefully all those kids can get back over to their community soon. Expect a new explosion once they do in the meantime. Let's get to know the director of turn it around the story of East Bay punk diggers. Let's meet Corbett Redford.

Novelist Viet Thanh Nguyen on Cultural Authenticity

"You grew up in San Jose California. Your parents open a grocery store tells about that experience. What was that like in? What was their journey like what what brought them here. Why did they come to California? My family fled the Vietnam War. But I'm thirty thousand other Vietnamese refugees because we were on the losing side and my parents in particular. Were were hardcore Catholics and Hardcourt Catholics Communists. And so they fled from the communist twice in nineteen fifty four when the country was divided and they were in the north to the south and then they fled again in nineteen seventy five so the refugees twice and then they came resettled in Harrisburg Pennsylvania For few years And there you have to realize my parents have been very successful. In Vietnam. They'd been born. Peasants work their way up and became wealthy and then lost a lot of that coming to the United States arrived here as refugees and their American sponsors expected them to be poor refugees. Who would be satisfied with class or even menial jobs and that's what they did in Harrisburg for a few years. But they'd obviously we're not satisfied with that and a good friend in San Jose who said this is a promised. Land and weather's good. There are a lot of Asians out here and I just opened up a grocery store so they came out and worked with her at probably the first Vietnamese grocery store in San Jose in nineteen seventy eight and then opened the second Vietnamese grocery store right down the street for some reason. I don't have their friends all about that. But you know we live the Classic Refugee or immigrant American Success Story. Which meant you know? My parents climb the ladder yet again. Rebuilt their wealth and that exacted huge physical and emotional toll on them and emotional toll on me. I'm thankful they didn't make me work in the store because they didn't want me to do that. They wanted my brother to get an education but what I saw growing up. Was My parents working twelve to fourteen hour days almost every day of the year and working in a very dangerous environment you know there was shot in their store. We were robbed at gunpoint at home. My parents were always very paranoid about these kinds of issues. And I'm saying we had this class classic immigrant refugee story because they spent all their time working in order to support my brother and me and and and give a good life but of course what that meant. Is there no time to spend with us? So that's just the classic immigrant or refugee double bind and that's part of what it meant to be having this lonely traumatized childhood for me. Which in the positive sense gave me the requisite emotional damage necessarily become a writer thankful for that inherited trauma you mentioned earlier. And it's something that's really hard to explain to the everyday reader because it sounds a little bit academic you know but like when it comes down to is basically like what your parents went through and how it affected you. I don't know if you could kind of talk about the specifics of that any sort of characteristics that your parents might have passed down well. My parents were devout Catholics and Catholics. Like to suffer so in a sense we were very well equipped to deal with being refugees and immigrants because my parents suffered a lot Both in terms of just having to work really really hard and and also of course they. They survived thirty years of war in Vietnam from Nineteen forty-five to nineteen seventy five which which killed millions of people. So I have no what they had to go through to become the people that the Rx conceptual way. That's the consequences of that. Just in terms of their refugee shopkeeper lifestyle and even though they became very successful financially in the inheritor of that I also grew up feeling that we were poor made a lot of money but they were not spending it on anything and I think that watching them suffer in watching them work as much as they did. Made me not want to do what they did? But ironically I've turned into someone almost exactly like them in the sense that I work constantly now working very nice job being a professor and being writer but I'm always working and I suffer in my own way. Not Getting not in the grinding way that shopkeepers have to go through. But writing has kind of a a suffering for internal suffering journal suffering right but if you ask any writer will most writers. They're tormented by the struggle being a writer and as elite of a lifestyle as at as it is Nevertheless I think I've I've been quipped to deal with that. Based on what? I saw my parents go through and just absorbing the workaholic Catholics lifestyle. I think in my life own family. Like the way that my mom is very sort of pathological about saving money and maximizing it and that's because she grew up very poor now. I find myself thirty two earning enough money to buy a pair of shoes. The costs more than twenty dollars. Now that make you feel free. Can't do you really can't you know and and somebody told me that? I had the shoes of a restaurant worker a couple years ago now. I need to fix this and even my dad. You know when you go back home and they do your laundry for you. Here's looking at my clothes. You know it was like you need new clothes. Why don't you buy some new things you know so these things will leave a mark guy off of that what year work is in the kinds of writing that you do require so much self-knowledge as well you grew up in the bay area which is a diverse place. I also grew up in East Bay. Your south by East Bay But for me being Asian American as a kid in a very diverse place was great in some ways because it's diverse and I didn't stand out in the ways that frank for example in Tennessee has talked about very different but by the same token there are things that you've written about your experience growing up. I really relate to in that I was so intensely aware of the otherness other people perceived when they looked at me and it gave me a chip on my shoulder head a lot of like anger and resentment about the and it was really hard to know what to do with that for a long time so then to become a writer who writes about these things. You know. You're not running like fairy tales or SCI FI movies. You're you're writing is very close to these experiences in. I wonder how did you process what enabled you to get to that point? And and what was your experience like growing up. Well it's kind of interesting they'll give hearing about both of your life experiences because you could see where Franks experience would mean that. He would obviously feel like a complete other yet. We grew up in the multicultural bay area and I grew up in Vietnamese and Mexican neighborhood and so on but I still felt that that sense of otherness. And I think that's because even if we did live in a multicultural environment Dominant American culture is still was and still is dominated by white people inside like to say. I didn't really experienced that many direct episodes of racism experts if you've small ones but nevertheless I felt like we were all irradiated by racism. Just out there on the airwaves you know from. Tv Movies Radio Shock. Jocks this kind of stupid stuff that was going on. And so I felt that on absorbing that another hand also receiving support from the Vietnamese community and from an implicit Asian American community. So I went to this all white high school mostly. What High School Bunch of us? Who were of Asian descent? We knew we were different. We just didn't know how so. We've gathered a corner of the campus every day for lunch and we call ourselves. The Asian invasion reclaimed didn't have the language we knew her Asian. But we most of those guys never became political like I became political. So what happened. I think it was a combination of this Catholicism that I was raised with the suffering and the sense of sacrifice willing sacrifice I'm going to be a martyr and then I went to Berkeley and I was already an atheist. I couldn't be a Catholic martyr. Became an Asian American martyr. You know at Berkeley became immediately radicalized there and that was partly through political activism on the campus but also wanting to be writer in the context of the traditions of Asian American African American literature but also American literature I did a PhD in American literature. And I thought I'd I'm not going to refuse being Vietnamese or Asian American but I'm also at the same time going to claim my Americanised as well. I'm gonNA write stuff that goes in both directions. I did have big chip on my shoulder. Still do around about people just aren't angry enough. I came out of a Berkeley tradition. Where anger was good. Being radical was good. And then you look out at the landscape of Vietnamese and Asian literature. Sometimes you think well it's well written but maybe there's enough anger that's not enough politics in there. There has been in the past so I wanted to be someone who would incorporate both the politics of the Asian American tradition with what I imagined to be the highest levels of aesthetics and literature. That was my

"Russia cargo team took me up to the projector room in the back of the theater. This is the original from nineteen thirteen as you can see. And why would it have been tim lined. Because of the nitrate fire hazard. You needed some kind of protection on the woods woods. So that if a fire did start wouldn't burn the whole place down. I think I should mention here. Photographic film is a strip of transparent plastic coated on on one side with a light sensitive. Gelatin emulsion do this with a nitro compound and you've got something so reactive it'll burn even after you submerged aged in water so these days keen roles prints not highly flammable nitrates as they're called but the projectors are from the silent film Myra and he literally cranks the films on Saturday nights here actually not too difficult to do you. Just watch the screen and you're on can put much automatically readjust on the fly while you're looking at the screen to see the image at its proper speed. He's also the guy who repairs and researches the background of footage people send here because they niles is a good home for silent films Samarasinghe. What's out there and still is turning up a family just not too long ago brought us five nitrate films that were under house in Stockton rare films that I've never seen before? And what were they up. There was one film that was shot by the miles brothers in Nineteen Tim. Twelve San Francisco Company at ten Franc Park aviation need some more footage from the San Francisco earthquake aftermath. Nineteen six some pretty amazing Steph Rachel. How long did the silent film era last almost forty years from the eighteen ninety s through the nineteen twenties? But a lot of people didn't take these films seriously back then didn't think anybody in the future would care about about a bit of fluff made for the moment or maybe they did but nitrates fires destroyed a lot of foam history. It's amazing how many many films that were made in that time period thousands and thousands of films only a fraction survive but but because there were so many made that still means that there are still a lot of them around. Fortunately were there any surprises for you doing story. You Know Olivia. I don't think I realized how many women were involved in silent film and not just involved. We talked about Charlie Chaplin. But he wasn't the only big talent of this period take for example Mabel normand with bouncy curls and expressive eyebrows. She was the first actress to be tied to the railroad tracks. She she was also at keystone when Charlie Chaplin arrived and taught him a few things before he moved onto Sa. She directed some of the movies. He was in served as his I leading lady for a stretch ran her own production company eventually just like Chaplin thanks to historians like Keane were rediscovering and treasures hidden in plain sight for close to a century. Now can I just watch some of these films on Youtube in my jammies with my own popcorn. Yes you can't but but I'll tell you I have done a lot of that for this story and a lot of the musical choices. Her awful also the quality of the prints nut so great either plus. There's something to the physical experience of watching a movie in a theater with a live piano player.

"This isn't actually like some apocalyptic Hollywood movie the is what's been happening in California in recent weeks in southern California as well as northern California but the biggest effects and the scariest ones so far have been really in the area surrounding San Francisco and up into the Sierra foothills where in several different kind of segments in recent weeks we've had power cut to upwards of two million people at a time and the last week we saw a huge fire breakout in Tacoma county can gain for the largest in the state W incisors weekend the blaze now bigger than Boston this ring video showing residents fleeing the flames race towards their homes Friday morning you can see lays towering over them in the hills nearby hundreds of thousands of people who were without power already or adjacent areas without power than had to flee their homes I'm from these wildfires including one that broke out on Sunday right next to one of the bigger bridges in the area oh my God oh my God wins Governor Gavin newsom actually said on Monday many of you may not be aware that we have put down over three hundred and thirty fires aw Mussa logos you've been covering these fires and PG Ni California's biggest utility for years now acuity but right now California is in a state of emergency how much of the state is dealing with fires or blackouts or both we are talking about hundreds of miles tells north and south of San Francisco as well as huge swath up in the Sierra foothills so you know from Lake Tahoe and north and and down towards Yosemite and southern California southern California really hasn't been experienced this level of blackouts now part of that of course is because of how huge PG news service area is but it's also because this is a utility with a really terrible track record that is already in bankruptcy court because of the past fires at caused and is it a point where they are really trying not to screw up anymore for the future of their company and by extension our electricity service because it's the only one we got and so they're sort of balancing the facts that we all pay them for the power and it's really inconvenient when it goes out with the fact that a huge wildfire in the conditions were living in right now can spread very quickly threatened tens of thousands of homes and obviously killed people we've seen in years past mostly because of the campfire and because of the San Bruno Explosion PG and he doesn't exactly have the full trust and confidence of the people of northern California how does it decide at this point who's electricity to kill and who's to keep on that isn't excellent question and one that we have some clarity on but not a ton so some of it may be just an abundance of caution but I think broadly we're talking about old technology here you have transmission towers and other equipments decades old most of it is not under grounded it's all hanging out there what's the problem when the wind kicks up if it takes down the lines they spark fires and so even with these shut offs it's possible that PG NEOM may have caused housed the big fire now burning can kate fire and snow MMA county they've also admitted that their equipment probably caused a couple of other minor fires in the East Bay this weekend.

"east bay" Discussed on Bay Curious

"We start today's episode hiking in the East Bay hills near Berkeley reporter. Dan Brekke is searching for something that's baffled locals for more than a century. The only thing that's assuming as their ancient scrambling, a steep trail with him is Eric haven. This week's questions Skar but no one knows how ancient like does it go back hundreds of us? Does it go back thousands of years, older Ericsson artists. He writes and draws graphic novels and he was once a producer on the TV show Mythbusters maybe another hundred yards fifty yards. Eric, Dan beat their way through some tall grass and come upon what they've been hunting for. Cool. A stonewall stretching more than one hundred feet on Spiring. It is. Well, I wouldn't say on spy unless you know what, how old this is in that, no one knows where it came from. Actually just looks like an old stonewall just a pile of rocks, two or three feet high, but shrouded in more than a century of mystery and speculation. No one knows who built it. No one knows why they built it. This is big curious. I'm Lydia Allen price for ages. People have been puzzling over the East Bay mystery walls. You can find them scattered all over the place from near San Jose through the Berkeley hills coup built these things. How long ago and why. Almost as soon as bay curious launched a few years ago in came the questions about the East Bay walls. It was the perfect story for Dan Brekke along time Berkeley resident and amateur history nut here in the newsroom, hey, Dan via. So first off, what's so special about these walls? Well, what makes them unique is the theories that have been floated over the years about who built them while we were out on that hike in the Berkeley hills are question ask airi'q haven shared a friends theory. It's a variation on the notion that native Americans built these walls. His theory was that there was an earthquake here and it opened up fissures in the ground and he thought these were purely ceremonial that it was a way to appease whatever gods they thought were angered or spirits. And that's just one of the many series out there. It's hard to say. Zeisler when the legend of the walls first emerged. But the oldest published mention of the mystery appears to be March. Eighth eighteen ninety six in the Sunday, San Francisco Chronicle. The headline ruins among the Berkeley hills, half a mile east of grizzly peak stand. The remnants of stonewalls, which have long baffled the researches and curiosity of antiquarians by whom they were erected when and why is an unsolved mystery. The same little essay goes on to drop a few series that perhaps the walls were the work of what it called a long forgotten race or maybe the Aztecs of Mexico who might have used the walls for defence eight years later, the paper ran another one of his wall stories. A big spread in the Sunday paper did a colony from lost Atlantis once populate the Berkeley hills. Are these remarkable walls really relics of the stone age? It's got eight dramatic illustration, stereotype savages with spear bow and arrow, and actually. Erling big rocks. It was written by a guy named Harold French, and it sounds a lot like the first article. Now, this guy, Harold French, he shows up again and again in the newspapers, promoting the legend of the walls. So all these legends basically trace back to one looney guy. Well, he wasn't a nut really. He was a well-known member of the Sierra Club, and he helped start the East Bay regional park district, but he insisted the walls were ancient prehistoric, and his articles are still quoted as evidence of the mystery and over the years, plenty of others have tried to solve French's puzzle a newspaper librarian at the old Oakland Tribune, for instance, and a doctor from Fremont who suggested that maybe the walls are navigational aids for extraterrestrials. Oh my well, it's the twenty first century. Now surely we have something a little more scientific to explaining things. Well, over the last several decades. Real live. Archaeologists have been out and taken a look at the walls. They're very few historic accounts about the walls and this is contributed to this long. History of Mr. Xi about about them. Jeff. Entrace was an archaeology professor at San Francisco state university, and he spent decades trying to understand these rock walls and where they came from. The question we were asked
