Why Happened When Assange Was Holed up in Ecuador's London Embassy

"Roth is here who is an attorney for some people that went to go meet with Julian Assange journalists and lawyers that were then spied on walk us through that. So he's in the Ecuadorian embassy. And then the equity embassy. Let me just make one comment on what you said. Even if my argument is, even if Julian Assange actually told these people to go out and get bad stuff, that's still not a crime. That's what the press does every day. But let's go to the embassy. Let's go to the embassy and that'll come out. And what I'm concerned about there is any investigative reporter who set the way with the lower perspective. Or in that part of the need that letter, that's not illegal, but let's go to the 5 case in particular. By corruption, but I think it's just being with between the press and investigative reporting and someone taking information Manning and Snowden did. So what would happen was while he was in the MSD for 7 years, people went to visit him. People went, his doctors, his lawyers, his friends, his colleagues, and when he went into the embassy, they had a protocol. You had to actually give the embassy security your following your tablet, your laptop, everything you had had to go to them before you walk in to meet Assange, which sounds okay. They don't want any kind of tip we're going to vice ver everything. That makes sense. So what we learned from a litigation in Spain was that the embassy wasn't just holding your cell phone, your tablet, your laptop, while you were in meeting, they were imaging it. So they literally imaged the entire. Phone laptop of people that went in and think about the Ecuadorian government did that. The equity overall, here's what happened. The Ecuadorian government hired a company called UC global. UC global had essentially formed became essentially an age of the CIA because what this UC global employee started saying is, listen, why am I doing this? And we have affidavits at UC global people saying, why am I doing this as setting it to Washington? Why am I imaging it? So you can watch it.

Trial Attorney Richard Roth Shares the Story of Julian Assange

"I'm going to ask you just to kind of educate our audience a little bit. Again, who is Julian Assange? What did he do? Just some of the backstory around him. We have some younger listeners that weren't really watching the news as this was all kind of frontline news. So walk us through that. Sure. It's a very interesting complicated story. Let me simplify for those listeners and you want to doing this challenge is an individual who has a company called WikiLeaks. WikiLeaks does nothing other than publish material. It's The New York Times DNN. It's published his material. It's all it does. Years ago, it got sensitive material from a couple of people who were working at the NSA, healthy man, and a couple others. And received and published. It was pretty bad material. It basically showed videos where the army was killing innocent ironically. Or then the government did not like that. And the government decided that it wanted to extra to him under what's called the espionage act, notwithstanding the fact that he received the material. He didn't do anything illegal. He received under The New York Times received stuff, but about you name it. You name the issue. So he actually took asylum in Ecuador and the Ecuador embassy in London because he did not want to be activated but to the U.S. because he was very concerned that the U.S. would essentially try and potentially convict him under this crazy espionage act. The same act that Rand Paul said two weeks ago, Donald Trump shouldn't should be abolished and Donald Trump shouldn't be subject to and let him rely fiasco. So he's been sitting in Ecuador for 7 years during the that's sort of the basics of it. And he's been sort of confined in his own jail. I'm sorry, in the Ecuadorian embassy, not in Ecuador. I withdraw that. Got it. The Ecuadorian embassy in London. So he's been in London for years in London for 7 years, about a year ago, a little lower a year ago. Actually, two years ago, COVID makes us forget what happened. The ecuadorians literally physically removed the embassy, brought him to a jail in London, and he had an extradition trial. An extradition trial was a trial to actually write him to the U.S., which he was really adhering, which he lost,

The March of Leftism Across South America

"Want to talk about the march of leftism across South America, very troubling development, and we've seen it happen in recent months and in recent years. Now, of course, we know a lot about Venezuela. I talk about it in the podcast W, of course, talks about it a lot as well. But a number of other countries, Colombia, Ecuador, Peru, even Chile, and Chile was kind of the most unkindest cut of all. And what I mean by that is that Chile has actually enjoyed an economic boom because of capitalism because of free market policies. In fact, free market policy is put into effect. With the advice of American economists like Milton Friedman and going back, almost 50 years or 50 years or more now. Chile created a pension system that produced a decent provision for people as they got into old age. Again, it was a pension system, not like America's social security plan, but a pension system that's invested in the market and as the market went up people saw their fortunes become a lot more comfortable and be able to provide for them when they needed it. And your Chile of all places pivoted to the left by electing a real far leftist. In fact, somebody who has in the past been associated with communism, a guy named Gabriel borik. An activist who came marching in promised a kind of new Chile. In fact, said that he was going to rewrite the Chilean constitution. He says the constitution was put into effect onto a dictator Augusto Pinochet. We're going to redo the whole constitution. There was a referendum in 2020 Anna majority. In fact, a decisive majority of chileans voted, yes, we do need a new constitution.

"So on the ground, humanitarian agencies are providing the bridge for foreign aid to be delivered to Afghan civilians. But in a country suffering from a severe humanitarian and economic crisis. It's nearly impossible for them to do it alone. Reporting Ecuador's capital Quito was again rocked by protests this week the second week in a row. Growing discontent mainly by indigenous groups against growing hardship. The unrest has wrought parts of the capital to a standstill. Ecuador's president Guillermo lasso is calling it a coup attempt. In the latest clashes thousands of protesters infuriated by rising prices through rocks and molotov cocktails near Quito's Congress building, security forces hurled tear gas canisters in a confrontation which left several people dead and dozens injured, and nighttime curfew has now been imposed in Quito a state of emergency in 6 of 24 provinces. These protests were initiated by the powerful confederation of indigenous nationalities in Ecuador, so powerful its brought down governments before. I've been speaking with Daniel Ortega Pacheco. He's director of the center of public policy at espoo university in Ecuador. How would he describe these protests? I would say that this is just the accumulation of social demands and satisfies social demands and very, very legitimate ones. I would say, and it's not only about this current government. I think it comes up since 2017 actually, and it has to do with so many structural changes that are associated with the access to the IMF funding that has now engaged with emotional facility subsidies, but it has also to do with the diminishing of the public sector capability to design and implement effective policies. So what we are facing is that process of a democracy that can not resolve the problems, not the executives, not the assembly. So there is a general discontent that now has been leaded by the individual movement. Tell me about this confederation of indigenous nationalities of Ecuador. They've brought down governments in the past. How powerful are they? I think these are very well established organization. Supported by movements on the ground, different groups at different regions of the country. I would say the differently that confronting governments, I think that they have been able to put into the agenda demands of underneath of the indigenous peoples and I would say it has been very beneficial to reduce some of those structural poverty gaps that they face because they have been accrued across time. So I think that they are very legitimate boys and I would also add to that that at this point of time, the leaders of these organizations are also putting on the agenda ten points that do not only represent their needs, but I think that these are the needs of the entire population that it perceives that they have been postponed and that other priorities have been put in the agenda for better macroeconomic outlook for the government to seek additional international funding. So I think that the message is pretty clear. The government needs to put people first. What is the way out? Both sides say they're ready for talks and accused the other. Of not being ready. I think that the heart of the discussion is an issue of trust. I think we need to build that trust. And for building that trust, key signers from the government, political will to implement and execute in the less available time, as soon as possible, an economic package for the economic recovery to adjust to the economic world transition to climate change. I think that what we are discussing is I just transition the emotion of fossil fuel subsidies makes sense for the environment, but it needs to be worked out in a way that reduces the impact and the burden that peoples who wish are.

Yeah our goal is just to make it easier for families and couples to go explore the world and your website. Anywhere dot com. So i mean that sounds like a pretty generic name so it must have been connected by the domain. Yeah it was an investment in our brand. We really needed to centralize who we are. And what we do in the past. We were really focusing. On one market not was costa rica and as we steadily expanded into other markets such as anywhere panama anywhere peru etc were just juggling multiple domains and so bringing all of that content and our brand into one unified website just became a long term investment in our real vision for what we want to do and accomplish and so new people will work in your company and revenues from last year. We have around fifty people that contribute daily to the business. Some of them are contractors or partners. A number of employees but actually in the united states we only have three employees are revenue was just north of ten million last year. So i guess you're thirty seven years old and it sounds like pretty cool job that you have here. I guess you're trying to make people have a better vacation. Is that the idea. Yeah really the world. We live in right now. We believe that experiences are kind of social currency of today so that means going to new exciting destinations and travel in general becomes a big heart that our goal is to assure that the experiences go flawlessly. Take away a lot of the headaches. Disappointments that can happen so people spend a lot of time anticipating a trip but really the only have seven or ten days when they're actually there and if there's even one thing that goes wrong or a couple of things go wrong it can really sour the entire experience so we're accountable to that and we do a planning process that ensures that there's no regrets

Show is the real focus of the campaigning. Because it's the sponsor of this new exhibition of future planet on climate solutions on things like carbon capture and storage which fossil fuel companies often overstate in order to keep drilling from all oil and gas. But they're not the only one say back. The science museum opened one lab which is actually one allowed.

Why don't you start us when i get so. I looked into obviously the spain. Ten times faster. That's going to change. How long are days and nights are. We're looking to try before before you get too far into it. We just one note. Yes our parameters here. We're basically saying that. The earth is always spinning ten times. Faster not just immediately starting to go ten times faster like an overnight thing to despise of nobody if the earth suddenly started moving ten times faster it is an absolute catastrophic accompany of earthquakes. You know ridiculous strong hurricanes and things Everyone just dies before anything interesting happens. That isn't just immediately apparent of why you don't drastically changed of planets and benz shorter day night cycle really doesn't matter at all. It does not sure does one real short day. No one will be there for the night. So that's the only thing. I want to add before you jump in bed but go ahead. Yes so the first question is you know what are our current days. Like around around the world. So it varies based on where you are in relation to the equator. If you're the equator your days are around twelve hours long all year long. I should look a city in. Ecuador called Kito or i'm not sure which is about sixteen miles south of the equator. And they're the the daytime. Was you know it was from from like twelve hours and five minutes to twelve hours. Eight-match minutes year round. You know so pretty constant twelve hour day tomorrow night for us. We're all around boston on this. Podcast it does fluctuate based on the season so as we're recording this. We're actually just coming up on the summer solstice which is june twentieth. It's obviously already passed listening to this. But on the solstice which is the day where the day is longest shortest The sunrises five of seven. Am sunsets eight twenty four pm. So the daytime is about fifteen quarter hours around sixty four percent of the day on the contrary the winter solstice which is in december december. Twenty first it's kind of the inverse so sunset is our sunrise seven ten. Am sunsets four fourteen pm. so daytime. it's only about nine hours. It's about thirty eight percent of the day so obviously if you have ten times faster days you're going to have started ten times faster rotation of earth. You're going to have days their tenth as long.

Civil War is Solvable

"One manual santos when you became president of columbia. You were faced with one of the longest running most insoluble civil wars in the world. When you begin thinking about how to solve a problem like that it seems intractable at can't end. How do you break the problem down what you think of i. What was your first instinct. My first instinct was to try to get a complete picture of the problem and tried to generate the necessary conditions to solve it many times. This is not done and when you don't have the necessary conditions at your disposal. It is impossible to solve a conflict of this nature. would you mean by conditions. What exactly what you're talking about. Are you studied the why might predecessors failed because all of them tried to negotiate peace and i studied more than seventeen conflicts around the world. Some of them were successful in being a ended. Some of them. But i studied each and every one of these conflicts and extracted what was applicable to our conflict. And what to do and what not to do and when i had those conditions ready i then started. Negotiations conditions like you have to have the military balance of power in the favor of the state as long as the insurgency the guerrillas think they can win by using violence is very difficult to negotiate peace. You need the commanders of the insurgency to personally consider that for them on a personal level. It's better to negotiate a peace agreement than to continue the world and something that is very very necessary in today's world. Any estimated war in any part of the world needs the support of the region and if necessary of the international community to reach an agreement so these conditions were identified and then created because conditions are. Don't appear just out of the blue you have to create those conditions and we created those conditions in the case of columbia. And what did you do. I would my first. Effort was to strengthen our military. And i had the opportunity of doing that because i was minister of defense before being president and also to use the carrot and stick with the military commanders telling them that they personally would be better off if they negotiate peace and something that i did which was quite controversial at the moment was making peace with our neighbors in order to seek their support. Charters in venezuela who is not popular in colombia was very unpopular and we didn't have diplomatic relations or even trade relations with israel at that time and made peace with him also with president korea and ecuador south columbia we did not have diplomatic or even trade relations with a either and we needed them to support the peace process otherwise the peace process would not be successful so i made peace with both of them and with other neighbors which we did not have at that time a good relations brazil and bill and the rest of that work. I know that one of the other things you did is that you sought to give the rebel leaders some incentive to join the political process in colombia in other words to bring somehow bring them in allow them to have a political party allow them to be elected and this of course was also controversial because many people feel that these are criminals and they should be in jail. Can you explain why thought that was necessary. And whether you think it worked every peace process boils down to who where you draw the line between peace and justice. No matter where you draw the line there will always be some people from one side seeking more justice or from the other side seeking more peace so to make peace is not very popular and dishes. A an experience at all speakers have had a during the recent history also in a process of this order. What are the guerrillas fighting four. They want to change the country. They want a political power. And you have to give them a way out to dignified way out if you want them to lay down their arms and the way to do that is to offer them a space. In our democracy and almost every peace process around the world has to give the counterpart some guarantees that they can continue their struggle without violence through democratic means and this is an essential part of any agreement.

N. slash they will really be in your debt in more ways than you can imagine and you're really helping the people out who needed the most right now and of course you can always go back to our website Peter Greenberg dot com for the complete list so you have that on file when you do start traveling again speaking of travel up you know it wasn't difficult for me doing the travel that I do the amount of traveling to do the locations where I go to make a connection tween the behavior of travelers whether it's Ahmad Obree or Brianna Taylor or word or or George Floyd up and we've now had an intersection where where black lives matter intersects in the most intense ways with the black travel experience which is the black experience just happens to be on the road and joining me now reporter New York times contributor to rewrote Moses that what did I get it moves a lot I got it I got it I got it I'm gonna say that five times fast you'll really be impressed and you know this is always being talked about maybe because of the of the pandemic that you know when we come back and we travel we're not going to go long distances were gonna fly over bodies of water we're going to take the the great American road trip but for so many people of color the great American road trip is not an attractive thing well I'm for a lot of people you know I think we've all been hearing at this point per month really bad after after the pandemic when people start traveling again they'll want you know except that they can control you can control how many stops you had when you get into a car you can control how many people are coming with you you can decide if you want to take a detour sort of the freedom that comes with that whereas if you're getting on a plane you know it the airline telling you where you're starting and where you're stopping your going through security or walking through probably a crowded airports at this point in time less crowded than usual but those are some of the differences and why a lot of people have told us that you know driving the way more appealing but of course you know for probably the color and black travelers and in particular that read that we've been told about that comes with the great American broke that isn't quite there I think the stories were looking at some of the anxieties and concerns and like layers of planning an actor thought that a lot of black Americans have to go through in order to go on a road trip in the country I mean bottom line is when African Americans vacation it's not a vacation very often from discrimination that travels with them right you know and we've seen that in different ways over the years right like how many times have we seen videos and heard complaints from people saying from African Americans say you know I have been to my Airbnb and you know somebody who lives nearby called the police could be thought black people checking into an Airbnb those sort of people are already concerned about stuff like that or even just feeling like people are looking at you could basically just for being in a certain date while you're traveling and also you know we in the even on airline right in the story over and over again African Americans being targeted in various ways sometimes it just the language that you need to talk to our department and other times it becomes more critical and so it's sort of it's the complicated subject and it's one of the things that people don't seem to really think about unless they're African American actually dealing with it every time they get on the road again on a flight you're right you know I go back to the to the movie that many people saw when a lot of awards the green book it was about a journey through the south and you know and the green book by the way existed let's not kid ourselves that you know what when I was growing up I saw that book I did discussing that was a surprise to me what was a surprise to me was that it took so long to tell that story and yet that book still got over that movie still got criticized because it told the story throat through the white point of view in many cases wait while the green box and for anybody who might not know why is a guy that was gated by an African American man in Harlem in the thirties and he would update it I did it through the sixteenth and it had it was especially a guy it was like a little book that with greed that had you know direction or how that might help in people's homes that black people could stay at Mindy St that had restaurants in various activities I think that within that it was sort of shocked make sure that black people probably played and the movie from two thousand eighteen shares the same name and hi I'm sort of that outline of safe places for black people to go buy some of the criticism it received was that it really did focus on the friendship and in a way between the white man the white driver and the black musician he drove around the cut around about and you don't get quite as much of the realistic experience of what that would have been like some of the tension between them and sort of how difficult it really would have been to be a black man traveling through the south would be sort of a calmer note you and also one of the criticisms you know it's not when you watch the movie you actually don't really agree but I think maybe once or twice and both times it's like you know what a white character you're right you're actually right now that you mention it yeah but what that movie did though was it let people know even though the point of view is a little skewed up that this is how you had to travel if you were of color at that time but the connection wasn't made and maybe it hasn't ever been made until recently that that.

"I'm Marco Werman. You're with the world. The Pentagon took a rare step recently. It acknowledged that an American airstrike killed two civilians in Somalia. It's worth noting that the strike took place more than a year ago. Part of a twelve year old campaign against al-shabaab the extremist group. It's also worth noting that airstrikes have risen infrequency under president trump but as the world's Halima condie reports this is only the second time the US Africa Command or AFRICOM has acknowledge civilian deaths. The last time of the law. He Abdirahman Ali Door spoke with his seventy year. Old Father was on March. Sixth widower lives in London now but his father had never left his hometown of Mogadishu in Somalia. It was a regular Friday afternoon adores.

Okay he asks me about my family my kitchen staff and everything Kedah then the above this chronic viruses. Tough here by the news door still remembers that day because when he told his five year old daughter he had spoken with GRANDPA. She got really excited. She told me Dad. We're going to send a letter to him. I'm gonNA write a later on. We're going to send to your daddy on Tuesday morning. Should remind me but that letter would never be sent that same day with door gotta different call this time from his nineteen year old brother in Mogadishu on he goes. That was kid what happened. He goes the he was killed by. Joins I believe in my say. No Dot Com dot Dawson steak Can you can you can just kill him so just find out moral. We're door learned that his father had traveled to settle some family business in the town of Journal. A It's a stronghold of the terrorist group Al Shabaab according to a doors relative a US drone strike. Hit the minibus. He was in would were says. He didn't believe that until he saw pictures sent by relatives in posted online. How do they just sleep a night? Some guy withdrawn like a play station. The blue the way we played playstation he goes off flies and kill some people the US military has been active in Somalia since two thousand seven. It's working with the Somali government and African Union forces to fight al-shabaab and Isis to terrorist groups seeking to control the country for years. Human rights organizations have been sounding the alarm about civilian deaths. Daphne Avatar is with Amnesty International. Was under the laws of war. The government is supposed to minimize civilian casualties and take all reasonable precautions to prevent civilian casualties en en to provide accountability when civilians are killed. Eviatar says Congress now requires that all claims of civilian casualties are investigated and those findings are made public. But there's still a lot of secrecy when it comes to how AFRICOM decides who is a civilian and who isn't so the government can just say whoever was killed. Oh they were members of this terrorist group. And we're at war with a terrorist group and therefore these killings were all fine and they don't have to classify them as civilians that he would doors. Father died AFRICOM released a statement. It said the airstrike in Denali on March tenth at killed five terrorists would or says his father was not a terrorist and a simple seventy years. Old who is innocent on who is a disabled man who never did anything wrong all his life and he has six kids. This wouldn't be the first time AFRICOM got it wrong. Last week. It released the first ever quarterly report on civilian casualty allegations. The report acknowledge that two civilians were likely killed A. Us Air Strike in February of last year and three others were injured. Chris Woods is the director of air. Wars a nonprofit organization that monitors civilian deaths and injuries and conflicts around the world including Somalia would says the new AFRICOM report represents a big step in transparency. Shouldn't in the last Year we have seen significant strides forward by Africa bringing them themselves up to the standards of the US military command but would says there are still a lot of unanswered questions about the civilian toll of US operations in Somalia. He says suspected covert Special Operations for example are not acknowledged africom. We now know for less about. Us actions in places like Somalia and Yemen than we did years ago under president. Obama Weed says there are big discrepancies. Between what the. Us MILITARY IS WILLING TO ACKNOWLEDGE. And what's being reported by local Somali communities? They been documenting civilian casualties online and in local media outlets the strike. That would door says killed. His father was discussed on a local. Tv Channel Without Shebab New Mall. Mehanna Urbanized Sheila Deliver. Could how do I and Chris Woods? It's important for the US military to pay attention to what's being reported by. Mali's they stay silent on civilian allegations. He does that make favors. Because militant terrorist organizations will exploit that silence for propaganda purposes events. Exactly what has been happening in Somalia? Africom is still reviewing the air strike on March tenth. Woodward tells me he feels angry and helpless about the death of his father. If Americans are killing civilians he says they're doing exactly what Al Shabaab is doing. A few civilians. Are you the same show? They can civilians all the time. The kids they can mama's woman all of that and I thought okay better people. All United State AFRICOM says it's launching a website for people to report allegations of civilian deaths and injuries and local languages.

Which is that you get through this period of whatever accounts for lockdown wherever you are because a lot of different things that are calling themselves lockdown you got through this and then we'll just open the doors and everything will go back to normal so Ilana. We shouldn't get overly optimistic for sure. But why is it that two months into this pandemic were still in what we call the beginning of it? What bill and others mean is that a lot of the world still hasn't been infected and that makes them really susceptible and vulnerable to the virus basically to later stage in a pandemic. You need to have something like sixty percent of the population exposer over it or of course have a vaccine but we're just not there yet and so even in places that have been hit the hardest whether that's New York or elsewhere and even with the highest projections those percentages just still. Don't add up to having that level of people exposed and that's why health leaders are also on high alert when you have the easing of lockdowns about whether there could be more cases and how to contain that and then at the same time they're still learning still don't quite know what it means to be exposed whether you have like a long term immunity. There's some diseases like dengue gay. That if you get infected again it's actually worse so there's just a lot still to be understood about this virus and also how this might play out in waves in the future. Yeh also occurs to me that the corona virus seems to be playing out so differently in so many different places like what is happening. What is the spectrum of the infection? How intense it is. Yeah I mean the main thing is that even though this is one pandemic it's many many different outbreaks around the globe. Depending on where you are so you have places in Asia where they were hit. I where they had these peaks now. They're on alert for resurgences and on the other hand places like in Africa that appear to be just at the beginning of early reporting of cases. And why is there this variation there's a lot of factors that can contribute to that whether that's like how a government's control strategy is playing out in the community like with the testing and the tracing and the containment but some of it also has to do with the timing and the way it spreads so. I talked to just metcalf. She's a demographer and evolutionary biologist at Princeton also seems to be the fact that there's a lot of super spreading events associated with this virus so super spreading events Marco think about like small percentages of people that seem to be spreading it to lots of other people. Maybe they were at a gathering like was reported on the show in Las Vegas. How people from all over the world came and then that can kind of set forth something on the other hand. There's these other details about a population like aging populations like in Italy seemed to be more susceptible and then even without there. Are these outliers that still have researchers wondering about so just gave me this example? That's really close to her heart My parents in Bangkok in Thailand Thailand is relatively aging population relative to much of the rest of Southeast Asia. And yet they just don't seem to be that many cases so she still has all these questions but what is becoming clear is that this virus will be with us for some time. The world's Alana Gordon. Thanks very much for getting started today. You welcome among the countries hardest hit by the corona virus is Ecuador on a per capita basis. Ecuador's rate of infection is way higher than any other country in South America. Things have been especially bad in the crowded. Coastal city of Kiel Public Hospitals have been so overwhelmed. Bodies have been left in bags on the street. As the World Jorges Valencia reports funeral homes are only now starting to catch up with the sun demand for their services over the last week or so ed got read up has just started to spend time with family if your mother when the reach him. He asks his three-year-old Daughter to be quiet. So he can speak at out. Runs the stakes. If you home and Ecuador's coastal city of Kiel. The city of about three million people has been reeling from Cova. Nineteen for weeks. You're the Hotel Tower Mirror. I I would start taking. Phone calls at eight in the morning and work until midnight says while he and many others are still in emergency response mode the beginning to cast breath. I'm open the equality is reporting more than twenty seven thousand corona virus cases. But it's hard to say just how many people have died from covered nineteen because there's limited testing we've got mafikeng. Soloviev tells me. His city was bearing more than five hundred people a day. In mid April for comparison. He says a busy day last year would have seen something like fifty mental in Europe. There was one case that will never let us. Workers arrived at a dead man's home. They found his body had been decomposing for five days owner clear hours ago because at that says one of his employees got what he calls the white death in other words he turned Pale white and almost fainted. It's not so uncommon for people to die outside of hospitals in Guam says Jaime Garcia Cheese with the National Institute of Demographic Studies in France and studies mortality patterns across Latin America. This is not unusual in Ecuador around forty percent of that of outside the health system. But what's not clear is why. Ecuador and in particular has been hit so much harder than the rest of South America got says cities across the continent or similarly vulnerable with dense populations and many people living in poverty. He's not just a virus that is happening in America. We have the worst thing crisis. Historically in this more men we have problems of all kinds if the healthiest in our collapse we are going to have an increase of data other courses to. Ecuador's Public Health Ministry says more than thirteen hundred people have died from the corona virus. That is probably a severe undercount if you ask any funeral home director in the country. I mean that's quite a hip pro labor. Yana runs another funeral home for came on and see me see. Kiev hatred examined says many people were dying appear to have not been tested. She says that's tickets. We'll give causes. That seem related such as respiratory problems. Not Deporting difficulty. Shaq Kobe guessing but she says the death certificates won't say anything directly about Kobe. Nineteen at got from sakes funeral home. Says he's not all that interested in a precise figure in fact. He says he stopped paying attention to the news. Altogether lengthy dental union says he's been doing whatever you can't take care of his mental as well as his physical health. The independence is a client recently. Gave thanks an offer to shake his hand that says he replied that when all this over they can give each other a hug instead but for now. Let's keep a safe distance for the world. I'm able to you today. Belgium gradually lifting some restrictions on its lockdown. Belgium has the world's highest mortality rate from the corona virus. Not what you think. Belgium isn't necessarily doing a bad job handling the pandemic. It's just counting things differently Steven van. Gupta Varela Gist and government spokesman in Belgium so recently president trump pointed to a graph showing that in terms of population size. Us ranks number seven in mortality rates while Belgium ranked number one or mortality rate is far lower than other nations of western Europe with the lone exception of possibly Germany this includes the UK Switzerland Belgium the Netherlands Italy France. You say this is an inaccurate comparison. Why is that? It's highly inaccurate. The Way Belgium is counting our debts is different than the way other countries are doing this. Actually we are not only counting the deaths in the hospital which are confirmed with a laboratory test whether or not they have been infected by the virus but we also count probable cases which occur outside of the hospital and a lot of these cases haven't necessarily been tested so suspect based on the clinical symptoms and the possibility of exposure that these are also related. That's an athlete's more than half of the death count in Belgium. So if you want to compare the Belgian cigarettes with figures from other countries you almost have to defy our number by two so. It's difficult at this moment to just compare to figures but that doesn't take away that Belgium indeed has been ferry heart by defiance. We saw our peak somewhere in the beginning of April. And now in the meantime the numbers have gone down and believe that it is possible now to lift some of the measures but very prudently very cautiously. I mean it may be a transparent way of counting mortality. But there's some people who look at those numbers in Belgium and say well maybe. The country isn't handling the pandemic so well so this method politically unpopular. What do you say to that? Well we don't do it for political reasons. It's to protect the health of Belgium's and for that purpose this is the best way of counting and the best way of reporting we saw there was a problem emerging in nursing homes. That's the strategies. Were epithets and we needed to do much more than we were doing at the time. It's also the epidemiologically the correct way of measuring the impact of an epidemic. If you talk with people from W.H. Show or CD CD will say one hundred percents rights. That's your cannot only rely on laboratory confirmed cases you also look at the probable cases especially in a setting where you know. Tests capacity is insufficient and this is almost the case everywhere in the world. So it's really good practice so counting differently in Belgium. What does that mean in terms of icy us in hospitals and getting the right p. p. e. has the government able to better prepare for that already in peacetime we are one of the country's with the highest number of ICU intensive care units in the world or especially in Europe and we increase the capacity drastically at the beginning of the epidemic so even at the peak of the which again was summer beginning of April we only reached fifty eight percent of occupancy in the ICU unit so there was still a lot of buffer left We still had space to accept new patients on the nation scale. We never had a problem with ICU. Capacity or other bets in the hospital for this way Of course in the future if we might get hit a second time. And maybe if it's a bigger WAIF might become more difficult but now we managed quite well Steven Van Gupta Veroljub and government spokesman in Belgium. Thank you very much for being with US okay. My pleasure have a good day if you've got questions about.

"I want to go to Ecuador I can get a pensioner's pizza pensioners visa and I just have to show that I make eight hundred dollars a month which is a lot for them right if you want to bring somebody with you then you've got a friend after two hundred dollars for them this is the only country where you can just cut you know storm the dates and you know we're going to take care of you the problem is there aren't even any gates where where it's it's like we've we've got gates okay we've got gates at the border crossings but they don't connect to anything so you just go around the gates and then there are people waiting there to give them maybe not now but to give them a big wet hug and say welcome to the country here's how you register to vote when it's appropriate exactly they wanted they wanted to know when if they would you know we're we're bigoted and biased and racist and we're a country of immigrants but everybody you know every country is a country of immigrants everybody came from somewhere else right but we we you know even if small country like Ecuador says like no you can't have a certain amount of money you gotta have something to put on the table when you come in here that's the question what do you bring to what we get out of it that should be the question we're all we all know what we're offering more offering a lot of great stuff what do we get out of it because otherwise you're going to have seven billion people knocking at the door and that's going to work out very well appreciate the call Steve roots go to levy on the eastern shore you called yesterday but I wasn't able to get to you Lee and I felt bad about our stock what all this is over with we need to find another trip back to Ireland well leave how you doing buddy yeah well I was really upset I I my brother passed away a couple years ago and and I go to visit his grave close to the anniversary date so this year I decided to make an onsite Patrick's day and he is very in a reference out of there I was greeted by a sign on the front gate in the back of summer cemetery that individual mourners are not a lot although if you're here for a funeral as long as it's less than fifty of you you can congregate in the chapel for fear I wells completely flabbergasted by that let's just have an insult trying to make sense out of that will work the the the lead here you try to make sense out of it he has never make sense out of what they're trying to they're they're fumbling their way through this and then it what it when we look back in hindsight we tell our kids and our grandkids about this time and my kids are are one half and two almost three and we tell about it there they won't have any memories of it but if you say well why did they do that and why do they do this and we can make fun of it then but you gotta realize in the moment they're just as lost as we are and they're trying to figure out and of course you call the governor's office and all you get is a recording and they find that somebody's gonna get back to you sometime soon right but it did and now in the grand scheme of things really I know it means a lot to you but in the state it doesn't mean anything right now you know it's not internal time and and nor can it to be honest with you yeah I had to get a feel it it it doesn't it other things have to take precedence but read they're just trying to feel their way through this they're trying to figure it out and yeah you gotta forgive I'm alive for sure that I took a picture that notice and I've sent around to just about everybody I know everybody is shaking their hand over everybody's trying to figure out I know and now it's ten people and soon it'll be five and then you can't play red rover anymore it's just who's having who's like having a party who's calling up their friends is anybody doing this weekend Bob much come over and we'll have a few beers watch a movie you will be great absolutely there's no you can't say come over and watch the game because there are no games so how about we just relax and step back and recognize that it's gonna be a couple of weeks we're going to really sit down and figure out what kind of children you raised if you haven't you know teenage children I had hoped to god for the best that you raised really good children because you're gonna have to spend a lot of time with them for the next couple of weeks and do you think you'll be pleasantly surprised when it turns out that you did and go from there but if you didn't yeah maybe there's still time to correct it well we are very proud of all or a well it's been a while it's good to talk to you Lee and yes we we we definitely should have planned to go back to Ireland I want to go back to Ireland but I'm I'm not going anywhere right now well I'm not going because Ireland in may I'm sure there's a city called Ireland so when everything settles down we'll get together and we'll plan you should at least take care all right president trump has taken dramatic steps to test out the corona virus with the big media are still waging war on him if you're fed up with the bias and you need you need to see the Chris outsider show each day at eight

We went across the border and we were in Peru so we got six months visa visa stamps. They were just handing out like candy. They were like how long do you want and we were like. I don't know two weeks and they're like here's six months. We actually need two months so it was fine. We didn't need a while but there was like clicked tvos there and so we hopped in and we were like we're finally and Peru. We're doing it. Let's take us to Santa Agnosio. Seo because we were this is still part of the border-crossing like halfway through the border crossing out they're not called collective voice in Peru honey. They're called Columbus. Oh that's right. Yeah the same thing though is just a van full of people taking you to wherever you want based on whatever their number system is it's fine it's great you can go anywhere. You want South America. I really wish that was the thing in like the US so we take off and we're like we swapped the lush jungles and cow. Trees for like farms. Yeah kind of like arid farms because all of Peru's farms are in like valleys of Ecuador's farms are on the sides of mountains right and so it was just blake deserty. Yeah for hours. Yeah actually for the next two months. That's true actually. It's not. There's like the Amazon is on that thing anyway we spent the night at signing Maciel. which is the town? It's a town streets. Yeah and we did like the cool backpacker thing where you just like show up and you find a place and we were like. Oh we've neglected and it worked out great. It didn't work out great here. We just wandered around until we all got really cranky us in our like hostile friend Steve or whoever and we eventually found a really cheap place I think cost us like six dollars a night with no hot water. Why and we had to walk up four flights of stairs but there was a bed and the stairs? Were Super Low. So we had to like squat and walk up the stairs remember remember that like our giant backdrop.

Whatever it stop doesn't really describe? There's a building building where everybody has decided to stand around and wait for the collective. Oh so were there and you've got a popsicle because I'm an ice cream fiend. And you're sitting next to like that rooster and I took a picture of you like eating a popsicle next to a rooster. Because I was like. Hey that's funny. I didn't think there's anything like different about this rooster. At the time it South America you get used to animals wandering around saying it sounds so much more ominous he just comes up again later. So we were like the clicked finally shows goes up and we all pile into this Colombian this swoops up this rooster which by the way was like a beautiful roussel gorgeous rooster. Yeah look like there is. It's just that we had on my farm growing up. They were decks though. Yeah I grew up on a farm weird flex but this kind of like swoops up this rooster and just steps steps on the on the van. And everybody's just like that checks out and it was. It was kind of weird because there was literally a bag of chickens on the roof. Oh that's right. 'cause they're all squawking in a bag mike and we were like that's really sad. Nobody should maybe not have chickens in a bag on a roof but this guy takes this rooster and put them on his lap and just like pets him. It was kind kind of like doctor. Evil had like that cat. That was like what this rooster was. He was definitely a fighting rooster but he was a prize fighting rooster. Did you not know the name from Mr biggles worth breath. I'm sorry jeeze remember so anyway. We take off and the driver of the Colby was just like it was like who's playing Mario Kart he was doing the most he was literally passing.

This dude went faster through this section. Yeah it's like he hit the mountain treacherous mountain pass road and he was like I'm going to really crank this up a notch and then not only did speed up homie pulls out his cell phone and started texting not colleague texting. And so like. Here's the thing. After like four months of backpacking through South America America. We're very used to like being afraid for our lives on buses and we're also very used to being the only gringos on a bus and usually we're the only on the bus that are like the only people people on the bus that are anxious at all no matter how regarding no matter how treacherous the road is but this particular day we were not the only ones that were freaking out. No usually it's like everybody's everybody else's chill so we should be chill. Were just being super white but we were in trouble when we realize that the locals in the van were freaking out and they started yelling and praying begging taking the driver to slow down like. I don't think I've ever been as scared as when the woman next to me started praying and like I wasn't fluid in Spanish at this point but like you're going going to kill US please. Slow down I have children at home is easy to understand any language and I find every reason to be anxious and this was just the peak we were like holding onto the sides. Ads were screaming at the driver. Everybody screaming at the driver. And he's just like on the phone with somebody telling us all to shut up and everybody is freaking out and the one passenger that was totally totally chill was that fucking roster and he was just sitting on his owner's lap getting petted given zero Fox. I wish that roster I wonder if he has an instagram. I aspire to be that rooster every day and then finally after thirty four hours of of travel after leaving vehicle Bomba in Ecuador crossing all the way over the border to parole the end of our two day border-crossing journey was over and here.

We were on a highway through a valley and it was like you know we were definitely going into oncoming traffic a lot but it was it was not so bad but then we hit the mountains and the road turn into this mountain pass where one one side was literally just this sheer rock face and the other side was just this like massive fault is death and that road was terrifying and it was like it was like the world was just challenging him. This dude went faster through this section. Yeah it's like he hit the mountain treacherous mountain pass road and he was like I'm going to really crank this up a notch and then not only did speed up homie pulls out his cell phone and started texting not colleague texting. And so like. Here's the thing. After like four months of backpacking through South America America. We're very used to like being afraid for our lives on buses and we're also very used to being the only gringos on a bus and usually we're the only on the bus that are like the only people people on the bus that are anxious at all no matter how regarding no matter how treacherous the road is but this particular day we were not the only ones that were freaking out. No usually it's like everybody's everybody else's chill so we should be chill. Were just being super white but we were in trouble when we realize that the locals in the van were freaking out and they started yelling and praying begging taking the driver to slow down like. I don't think I've ever been as scared as when the woman next to me started praying and like I wasn't fluid in Spanish at this point but like you're going going to kill US please. Slow down I have children at home is easy to understand any language and I find every reason to be anxious and this was just the peak we were like holding onto the sides. Ads were screaming at the driver. Everybody screaming at the driver. And he's just like on the phone with somebody telling us all to shut up and everybody is freaking out and the one passenger that was totally totally chill was that fucking roster and he was just sitting on his owner's lap getting petted given zero Fox. I wish that roster I wonder if he has an instagram. I aspire to be that rooster every day and then finally after thirty four hours of of travel after leaving vehicle Bomba in Ecuador crossing all the way over the border to parole the end of our two day border-crossing journey was over and here. We were in head to yes Peru. The land of Llamas lost kittens are most expensive disaster today God Babes Boilers also. You're wrong second. Most expensive disaster to date. I disagree with you no seriously look it up anyway. You're going to have to tune in next time to hear that part of our ridiculous disastrous honeymoon earlier. We said that this is going to be a two episode series series but I. I don't think we can get it done to believe in us. Have you met us. Who'd have faith in us well tune in next time? Bye the.

"Just like ice and fire. Nobody lives there. And it's really just like fucking Lizard. You should definitely go watch it. But it's literally just like pictures of lizards like sneezing and tells us win being like dragged. We know this place destination but that actually lovely hostels and hotels there and lots of food. It's great yeah. That was the only time that we really really just went with the flow. That was that was our kilo. I believe Ecuador is your country to plan. I had Plan Colombia and it was amazing. Ecuador put ours yours and then Peru was mine. Then we'll talk about that later. Well the thing about Ecuador and specifically the Galapagos is that you will save money if you just sort love Chili Okay Shila fi it. She'll fully chills toward you're looking for skillfully ENCHILA- fully. We just showed up. We just showed up in poor Toyota with no plans and we just try to figure it. All we had was a flight and a flight out. We were like this. This is the moment where we were like. We're GONNA be backpackers who just go with the flow. We were trying to channel like our inner drunk and like just figure it out and honestly this was the only time in our entire lives that that's ever actually gone okay for us. We ran into this guy that owned hostile and he was like hey hostile. Because I'm thinking about opening this wound up he'd like just created these bedrooms. Let's be fair. We had just gone into like you make this really easy. We'd actually gone into four other hotels based off of just like walking down the street for Word Hotel and we walked in and they were all like terrible. Nobody there there were just like dingy and had some a Mike. You're on the ocean so you have a bunch of salt stuff happening in there but this one was new and it was really cheap. Yeah it was called swing yes silvester as and it was fantastic fantastic and ended up being a great place to stay. It was a really good fine. It was just a few blocks off the Strip and I don't know I strip street and I don't think that we would have actually really found it. Had had he not been just sort of I don't know standing on a street corner looking for gringos. I guess it really Nice. Yeah we'll talk about global goes in depth on its own episode because every day we had like four different activities. There's so much you can do. And Galapagos we have three posts blog about the galapagos. It's a lot it's definitely need to be. Its own episode. But I will say that like there were some highlights that I would like to talk about or sure others so we base ourselves import Toyota. which is the town in Santa Cruz? News on there's three inhabited town so that's one of them. Then there's Easter Bala and then there's Sancristobal we didn't actually get to San Cristobal but my favorite of the three by Far East like the Sabella. It's the one that feels like a tropical islands like you hop up on the beach and there's just like fifty three like sea lions sunning themselves and they don't care at all that you're there yeah because they're super used to it and Galapagos is like this magical place where humans and marine life coexist peacefully. Unless you're Darwin in which case you captured a bunch of giant tortoises and ate them all but we won't talk about that he was he was a cool scientist but also some real shady shit. You're telling me that a white man who's a historical figure sure did shady shit. Now it's crazy right got. I have to get on the get on the horn with my friend who's a professor at Christopher Columbus University and talking about this so I think my favorite thing that we did honestly Sabella was they lost analyze tour. Oh yeah that's the way you like. You take like a boat tour through these tunnels that were made from volcanic rock and it has all of the bucket list items for the Galapagos. They're all on that tour so we got really close. Like shockingly close to Bubis. Oh my God that was where we saw the little baby blue like the Harry. Little Blue footed booby and it had it had. It's so awkward looking. I mean the adults are super awkward looking with the teenagers. Were even worse and the dad was is like feeding it. And it kept like squawking. It's face and eventually the DAD was like shoved. Its entire beak down it's child's throat and it was like this magical nature regurgitation thing and I'm not describing with well. There's a really cute picture. That's exactly what it sounds like. Actually you just described as well as you get my favorite was a little bit unexpected because you know when you think of Galapagos you think of just like scuba or snorkeling but mine was Las Create this. which is this like swimming hole between these two the giant cliffs and it had the bluest water? I could possibly imagine and we went at just the right time when the sunlight was like sparkling everything. And you can see almost all the way to the bottom with this these rays of like crystalline light. It was so cool because the sand was like this white sand at the bottom. It seriously looked like it went on on forever and we found a hidden cave and I swam through and had a great time and you slipped and fell and hurt yourself. Because you're blind without your glasses. I Cut mackney Open on volcanic rock but it was still great time. It's still one of my favorite things that we did. Yeah awesome again. We're going to do all the stuff that we did on that island on a future episode. But let's let's talk about what happened after we got back to the mainland. Then we went to Cotopaxi. Cotopaxi is the famous like cone shaped volcano. It's the perfect mountain tape that you see in Ecuador. It's like if you drew a volcano as a child where it's like you know you draw a triangle and then like some squiggly lines. That's exactly what Cotopaxi looks like. It was like a little little bit of snow on top because lines. That's the snow. What kind of what kind of defaults to volcanoes triangle? And and. You do a little everybody. Who's going to draw a volcano draws fire coming out the top draw with fire and smoke? You draw like this just like a little snow cab. Our sound guy is from Hawaii and I'm GonNa have him weighing on this later on. Okay can you stop trying to include my voice. I'm just to get the audio. That's it all right so it seems like cheating so while we were in Cotopaxi we were staying in this. They call it a hostile but it was more of just like this like mountain ranch. Yes yes I mean. It was a hostile mountain. Man is called secret garden and it was amazing they had. This is probably the best banana bread I've ever had even like from Hawaii speaking of Hawaii. That's a close one. Yeah I don't know but it was free. which was the main thing? They basically served Banana Brad like all all day long at this hostel and you just eat it. And it's one of the hostels where like everything is included in your night price which does make it a little bit more expensive but you got like these amazing family style meals calls and all the banana bread that you can eat and that was really great and we splurged and we stayed in a hobbit hole? It was not only a private room. It was a tiny circular Room built into a hill with like the perfect frame view of the perfect volcano. Now is very honeymoon ask. That was very honeymoon. Ask One of the speaking of honeymoon ask that was also where we learned of guard. Llamas yes. I tried to befriend them so bad. They were working so hard work. Yeah it turns out that every Lama in South America. Erica is a working. Most of them are used to guard things because they are asi in. They'll spit it. You and I tried to approach those llamas. And I tried to bribe them with food and like made made little cooing noises at them and all they did was like fluff their little next at me and trot away adorable and I never befriended them and I'm still upset about it. Well I did make a friend there because I went horseback horseback riding. Because that's one of the things you can do. Horseback right at the foothills of Cotopaxi. Sound so cool just like flip in your leg. Blonde wavy hair and the wind. Is You galloped towards the volcano. I did go up those the only time. I've ever galloped know that I believe you but because I wasn't there because I didn't go because it sounded scary. What were you doing i? It was cuddled up in a incredibly warm Poncho made out of Lama for by a fire cuddling a really sweet hostile dog and the attempting to befriend llamas which didn't work and there's a big hammock outside. You spend a lot of time on that Hammock and I did a lot of like writing and like I did a lot of blog writing. There was no Wifi so I had nothing to do but like reflect and write shit which turns out was perfect. I got like three blog post written because back in the day my blog posts were like five hundred words long and they took a few hours. Yeah that was back when practical. Wanderlust was just a way for us to capture our memories. Because you have not great memory now. I can't remember anything. Anything actually like to research for the PODCAST. I had to go back in the blog and look at all the things I wrote down back when I remember that. WANDERLUST DOT com. Nobody was like it was. It's like our journal. I would be like. I'm writing this from a hammock in Allama Poncho overlooking a volcano. I just ate some banana. which sounds really boring but like looking looking back and like oh we used to write like it was live journal but then fast forward three years to when you're doing it professionally you'd be like there's no way to monetize that phrase as get out of that hammock now? I'd be like writers writers. Excuse me I need you to fix this post for me please taste I. I'm just getting I'm I'm kind kind of getting. She's been really not getting so after. Cotopaxi was lot of Congo which is a small town just south that people go through a lot and I and it is purely the town that people go through that is what it is famous for is that gringos have to go there to get to the Quila. Toeloop visit Laguardia of Ecuador. Totally didn't do anything. There did nothing. Yeah it's a jumping off point for the loop. We dropped our bags. which is that's what you do? You drop your bags and then we went to go do a four day hike through the Andes and you guys are probably sick of hearing this phrase but this is going to be its. It's owned total episode. y'All this was such a hot mess so I said it was a four day hike right except for for us instead of it being like four days of high altitude should hiking in and out of Kenyans up in the Andes. It was two and a half days with one day. Not able to hike because we were so miserable well and one desperate hitchhike because Jeremy was limping. Really bad and didn't tell me into the last day I tore my knee in the last mile. That's such no you didn't you. We're limping the entire time. And you were to like STOIC. Anything new out in the last mile see but like the whole time you were limping. And you didn't say anything well well because you didn't bring tracking polls I hold you to pack tracking polls. You didn't listen to me. I was fine because I had tracking polls and you were just like on if I tell her that. My knee hurts. It'll be admitting saying that I was wrong. And so you suffered the whole time and then injured yourself like an idiot. It's because I have a genetic predisposition to the flair for dramatic. So Oh what happened. But it's really dumb though but anyway the point is that this was a ridiculously fail of a hike like this is This was the hardest hike that we've ever successfully dine and it was a hot mess. No I mean we we hiked it does not well or all all of it. We also did the loop in reverse which was dumb. But that's getting into. We also like I think we spent more time being lost than we did. Actually actually on a trail of any kind we were doing. The offroad. Yeah that was a hot mess. We'll come back to that one later or you can read about it on the blog. If you can't stand the thing that used to that phrase though yeah so the next nation God. We're going to do it again but it was Buenos and I love by news. News has to have its own episode Bar News as in bathroom. That's that's means baths. That's it's called Baz because it's a thermal hot spring town at the foot of Aquino because everything in Ecuador is at the foot offer Keno and there's these thermal baths that you can go to at the foot of this giant waterfall. And it's lovely. It's like a spa town. But it's also in adventure town. Yeah we alluded to it in our Sun Hill episode a couple of episodes ago but yeah it's the adventure town of Ecuador so I went canyoning there and it was a pretty pretty tough cannoning route but it was so fun and Whitewater rafting. We went zip-lining. I hated it ahead of panic attack. It was terrible. That doesn't deserve. It's on episode all you..

"Nothing but banana pancakes. I we still the Matt. We've never been and you just listened to that song by Jack Johnson until you're going to lock and Yeah so none of that happened. Four months in South America happened and everything else is trash and then like three months in Europe Europe and then nothing but terrible terrible happening stateside and then we went to Mexico. But we're GONNA have ourselves so we got married need a couple of months at home to pack our shit up and say goodbye to our cat friend. Jasper who came every day and we really loved him and he was. Can we focus on Jasper for a second. Yeah our neighbor has this whole menagerie of animals and one of them is grumpy old black cat named Jasper. Who was the neighborhood cat? Who would just wander around? I sound like I'm reading a children's novel but I am so Jasper had snuggle tooth and a chunk missing out of his ear and he just made weird sounds like one front tooth missing he would just drew a lot of his mouth all the time and it was the gross accused Bang huge. Stand there drool and his meow was like man man creaky old bones. Just he was such a doll. He sounded like a Halloween decoration. And the best thing about Jasper is that he would come. I'm home every day. He'd be waiting for me when I got home from work and sometimes you would come over in the morning before I left for work and I never fed him. I never had that cat. Just we had a relationship that was is purely based on his love not his need for food and I think that is very special cat human relationship where we tried to feed him. We tried to feed him several times. Didn't like our our food not like our food. He had the house next door was his food house and we were like his cuddle house. He had a whole like he had a whole gauntlet of houses that he would hit up. There's like the milk house the waterhouse the Food House and we were the snuggle house which sorry we won the best and I really miss that apartment in Denver so we said goodbye. Hi to Jasper and it was Super Sad. It was actually the saddest lake anyway. We've act everything up. We shut it off to my mom's farm in Kentucky where I grew up because at that point we didn't actually know if we were going to end up. We thought that we might go to Kentucky. We we might go back to California for all we knew we could just say fuck it and just keep travelling our entire life. Yeah maybe our lives would change. Maybe you would just sail around the world like you know. Attractive travel people. Maybe we would just like start a blog and then eventually a podcast. Who knows that's ridiculous? We never knew that. That would never grab my mom's farm because it turns out it's actually cheaper to ship it entire apartment full of shit across the country rather than keep it in storage in the bay area fun in Fact Bay area things so we haven't laughed. We hopped on a plane and we arrived in Cartagena. Colombia was our first stop. Yeah I remember for it vividly. We had gotten on the plane and SF Oh and I was in pants down jacket down jacket because SFO and and then a plane. And I wanted to be all snugly on the plane and then I open the door and holy fuck. It is like ninety eight degrees windy and like humid like we were moist aced immediately moist and I love the car that had an airport because you you do outside like you walk off the plane and walk into the airport quart and you're outside and you go inside. And it's like mildly cool again and you forget how hot it is and you go back outside and you're like Oh holy balls thousand degrees and it was July love that I don't know it's Kinda the cool it's like. It's a tropical little entrance. July in the Caribbean with a down jacket on. Yeah you're real sweaty. I was sweating the so we added to our hostile and I remember we like went out to explore because I was like Oh day one of our adventure and I think we made it like to the old wall all surrounding the city of Cartagena and we were just like not into it at all. It's like that scene. Where in like movies where they have just like whirlwind romance and they're like let's just duck it? Let's go to Paris and then they're just awkwardly walking the streets because they realize nothing in common. Actually what movie is that. I feel like that's happening. Movies does the opposite of the CLICHE. Okay whatever we were walking around Cartagena just sadly because we were like. Oh Yeah I'd heard that a rape is were good said Oh colonial housing. That's cool already. It's colorful oh torture museum. That sounds really interesting. which made us have this like? Gut Bridging realization of we just packed everything away and made the biggest mistakes of our lives. It hit us like a ton of bricks like just ultimate in it regret. What did we do our lives? Will anybody ever hire us again. How are we gonNA pay your student? Loan debt like. What have we done horrifying? I think I burst into tears. Ears on the wall and then we sort of like cried and sniffling all the way back to our shitty hostile and then we laid. I remember I wouldn't like lay in my dorm bed because it was too far away from you and I was feeling really clinging ad so we hold up in one dorm bed and twelve person hostile and just like sobbed and watched net flicks Jessica Jones specifically sets which is not a cheer Yuppie kind of thing to watch no. You did have a breakdown on that. Well it's like the most beautiful wall looking over the Caribbean. And you were just like what the fuck is like ugly crying and just like rubbing my like snotty face all over your down jacket or whatever and then we changed it up. I John and then we did one of probably the most shameful things I've ever done in my life we like actually really cute. We went on so we went on next door. and that's how everybody had communicated with Jasper's mom is they were like I was in Jasper in a few days. Everything okay like one time he had worm is when we were like. Oh Jasper needs medication. Right that was actually Kinda grow. That was super gross but uh we messaged her and we were like we really.

"Powell she identify her she's Democrat from Florida and she talks about coming here from from Ecuador my damn speaker I did not have the privilege of being born into this country my mother brought me from Ecuador looking for freedom and opportunity we've left and experience corruption in our countries of birth more brutal dictatorships have choked their potential to benefit those in power this president elected by the American people has violated his oath of office and violated the rule of law you notice this problem comparison to these dictators thugs in Ecuador when these rural dictatorships how in the world it's it's obscene and it's absurd just take a look at the United States economy and the vast improvement just in the three years that trump has been press stock market of ten thousand points since trump has been president for example the idea that there's this is just absurd this is my point they are grasping at anything now because they can't get anybody's attention with power he made a phone call to the prisoner of your grade and he's such a bad thing for that phone call and this is very very dangerous for you that's not getting anybody's attention he he he he bills Congress he he he I've still got what what what do you do well he didn't what people come talk no we went to court to try to stop you from being able to not obstruct Congress in anyway so that the things that they wanted to tar and feather in Sally trump with haven't works and now they're just reaching for anything is no different than a tin horn dictator in Ecuador or Hakeem Jeffries I've got that here someone to find somebody on team number twenty five here we go in three two one slavery once divided the nation but emancipate as rose up to clarify that all men are created equally suffrage once divided the nation what women rose up to clarify that all voices must be heard in our democracy Jim crow once divided the nation but civil rights champions rose up to clarify that all are entitled to equal protection under the law we will hold this president accountable for corrupting our democracy we will impeach Donald John trump that's right we're going to be strong just like we got rid of slavery because it's one and the same this is the guy who last week went on a diatribe about trump putting kids in cages any return the trump four at tacking our young sixteen year old climate change activist and in so doing here on covered or revealed what it really is all about day job us can't stand Donald Trump politically are personally here is Steven buffalo your next Sir hello Russia listener since nineteen ninety eight of the one thing that I wanted to mention was Republicans of the store could take in the George Bush approach like you mentioned earlier in the program of of the high road and that will be going into the gutter like the Democrats have not one company's office in two thousand four I hope that they would have learned just like Donald had to learn that you cannot play nice with the Democrats you have to play the same games that they played in the I I really believe that the Democrats don't think that the Republicans will impeach the next Democrat presidents Justin I don't think they think that they will and I believe that if the Democrats go ahead and do that I really believe that the Democrats will never be so cavalier with impeachment again so what I'm let me see if I you you you you think the Republicans will or will not do it to the next Democrat president what they're doing to trump you think they will or won't well I I think that the Democrats believe that they won't right I hope that the Republicans do but I think that the Democrats are collected trying to call their bluff and together with one two with all with all due respect I don't think the Democrats are even thinking about that when did she Harry activated the nuclear option for electing judges he never worried that it would come back and buy them because all that mattered was the moment and the only thing that matters to these don't loaded deranged whack always he's getting impeachment next to Donald trump's name that's all that matters they'll deal with Republicans trying to pull this stunt against them if and when it happens they're not worried about what doors they're opening they're not worried about what norms they're breaking down in fact the more norms they can destroy the batter they're not looking at this they don't have any fear of Republicans they don't think the Republicans can pull this off you're probably right they don't even think the Republicans would try it so I I I don't think that's even in their calculation this is the moment they are singularly focused and they have been singularly focused for three and a half years it is not a lie and it is not an exaggeration to say that there are many Democrats talking about impeaching trump before he was even inaugurated folks it's in the record I made a prediction on January twenty third two days after Tom was a longer I predicted every bit of this that's happening not by specific event but I did say that he would be impeached if and when they found the opportunity to do it not the reasons the opportunity predicted why in that they're never gonna stop we have reached the point where they refuse to accept when they lose elections that is one of the several gentlemanly agreements that the parties have had since the days of the founding peaceful transition of power they have put us on notice of those days are over every election they lose they are gonna contest they are making no bones about that and in the process they are hoping to wear down Republicans into not even trying to win elections because it be easier to lose than to win and put up with this garbage now the maker of the remind you of a prediction that I made sometime ago and I really expect this to happen I don't think it's going to happen in my lifetime so don't misunderstand don't think this is imminent but I'm telling you it's trending this way there's no other way it can trend the one thing that the Democrats cannot control.
