"In fewer than ten minutes. My goes extract. Best advice in the world's smartest ammos interesting people might ask them just five questions my gas today as holocaust survivor and author dr edith eager at ninety three years old edith is one of the very few remaining holocaust survivors old enough to remember life at the concentration camps now as a clinical psychologist. She's processed her life trauma and shows us all how to stop being victims in our own lives in her new book the gift i've compiled questions from my jewish friends to ask edith for this very special podcast episode. My first friend jenn sutton asked a question. She goes a recent study. Found that twenty. Three percent of young americans believe the holocaust is a myth or the death. Toll is exaggerated and eleven percent. Think jewish people. 'cause the holocaust what is the best way to teach forthcoming generations about the holocaust in order to change these numbers. Nineteen young people. Have the right to question authority. I would relation very compassionately and not to deny any anything over what they tell you as so they know that you're not there to do anything other than letting them know what you know. And because you see it's all subjective is micro. send your true. You don't want to deny that too. If they tell you that they are causing exist. I don't think you want to see. Yes i know because i know that three good and she was in. It doesn't help you but what does have you is for them to go to the german consulate simply in a big city like washington and just send them to the people who supposed legal legal veal alleged. You know that that was such a thing as unfortunately ally and people believe it and juicer. Cancer to society. Because what's happening is that germany didn't win world war one and when the country is suffering economically. They going to a scapegoat and direct the engine elsewhere. You know i october did that. You know it's let's go kill carpenter and so on. It's a trick that they they really are not Fishing what is really going gone into them. So our biggest enemy is ignatz. And i think i would really listen to young people. And i would raise they on people and i would thank them for even be interested in history and what happened. Spent good people do bad things. Get not born bad and evil. No-bid bit love and joy in fashion at or does good things and young people are the future. I called them the ambassadors for peace and goodwill very interested in young people and. I want to back with romance. Don't them does beautifully said. I agree with that approach. And i think the best way of handling all this ignorance. We're seeing this division. We have is education like you said. Go educate yourself. I also want to let you know that you can teach anyone anything thing. Unless they have the desire to learn. Say you'll get to create. That have meant that curiosity chain. You'll know that curiosity that helped me in auschwitz. Not give up river. Because i don't find out what's going to happen next. And the next question comes from jr rosty who asks what obligation to young jews having preserving jewish culture heritage and history in light of the holocaust. I asked people not to overdo anything. Sometimes people tell me they don't want to be juice Because all day he is. The holocaust. Eighteen gets very important for us before we see anything to ask ourselves. Is it kind. is it very very important. We need to meet people read. They are and three them as if they were. But they're capable of becoming. I am very invested in our young.

Debra Messing; AJCs Groundbreaking State of Antisemitism in America Report
"Messing is probably best known for her role as Grace Adler on the long running Sitcom will and grace. She has starred in movies and even been the voice behind cartoons. But for the past several months, she has been one of the voices behind a podcast called the dissenters since May Deborah and her co host Donna Damiani have interviewed men and women who have made their. Mark Challenging the status quo but the penultimate episode that aired this month was particularly powerful Deborah and her co host invited Dr Edith Eba eager a ninety three year old Holocaust survivor to share her memories of the past and thoughts on present day politics and the future Deborah is here now to talk about that episode and her own experiences with anti-semitism Deborah. Welcome. Thank you so much. So tell us about this podcast, the dissenters what you're trying to accomplish with each episode and how your conversation with Dr Eager Fit that theme. The dissenters created as a response to the suffering that we saw around our country over the last few years, and also in response to the activists that have stepped forward and taken it upon themselves to try and make things better. My friend Montana Diani, she is the CO host. She was a religious refugee came to the country at six years old she and I have both been very active in activism reading these pieces about these extraordinary people from around the world doing extraordinary things, and we would send them to each other in order to sort of buoy each other when we. Would start to feel overwhelmed and it always sort of kept us moving forward and one day we just realized that as much as was uplifting us it would most likely uplift other people to hear about the works of these what we call accidental activists we wanted to ultimately inspire and empower people to recognize that you don't have to have a certain education. You don't have to have a certain following and social media in order to be an activist all you have to do is just recognize something feels wrong and take one step towards doing something touted doctor eager fit into this lineup. She is a ninety three year old Holocaust survivor. Who came face to face with Dr Mangala when she was a teenager at the camps, she lost her mom and dad and went through horrible torture and trauma, and came to America and created a family and. Got A PhD and has used her experience and trauma in order to help people coming home from war to heal from their trauma. She has written two books and she decided to become a healer. And we just felt like she did not have any idea what her life would be. Once she got out of the concentration camp. Yeah and she was able to look towards the future to have hope and ultimately choose to do something that would help others. How did you first discover Dr Eager Montana and I are just really really curious people. So we are constantly reading. We are watching Ted talks. It was a Ted talk of her that we saw and ultimately we felt given the fact that there is this surge of anti-semitism and racial strife in our country that it felt particularly timely and important to highlight her and her journey because in our research, we discovered that three quarters of millennials who are people who are in their mid thirties do not know what Auschwitz is such a stunning statistic and kind of unimaginable that we felt like, okay. This it's incumbent on us to have someone who was there and lived it to assert that it really did happen and to celebrate her as well. You mentioned the lack of knowledge about concentration camps AJC. Of course, just released its first report on the state of anti-semitism in. America. And found that more than half of Americans don't know the meaning of the word anti-semitism. Some haven't even heard the word before. With Charlottesville and. Is seemingly explosion of white nationalism and Antisemitism Nazis everywhere in juxtaposition to the second wave of civil rights protesting it's very interesting that people don't protest against anti-semitism people flood the streets, for racism. And when you look at Charlottesville, the Nazis were screaming about two groups about black people and Jews. And we really are the most natural allies in the world and it really was just something that I just sat with for a while about like why is it that people don't protest four us? You're Jewish grew up in a predominantly non Jewish environment. Did you experience anti-semitism growing up I? Did? Can you speak to that a little bit? Sure. I remember I was in second grade and we were lining up. To go to Jim and I got in line and a little boy me and said, get to the back of the line Kaik And I didn't know what the word meant the teacher overheard and immediately grabbed the boy and sent him down to the principal's office I. Remember everyone looking at me like I had done something wrong. And as much as I didn't understand what was happening I understood that it would have been better if I just stayed silent and I just wanted the board to come back and everybody to just be normal and stop looking at me and a couple of years later it was Halloween and my grandfather was visiting and we woke up and a swastika was painted on his car. In our driveway. And I recall my mother just standing at the front door looking at it and I felt her fear I felt endanger and I, remember no one said a word. Just, you know my mom said get in the house. And somehow the car disappeared. And we didn't talk about it. and. So it became very clear to me from a very young age that I was an other. That I was different from everybody the community and that difference wasn't good. And Somehow I had taken on a sense of shame about the fact that I was Jewish and I actually recall in highschool. My father was president of the Temple President of the Jewish Federation. My mother was Vice President of the Jewish Federation very, very, very active in the community. And we would stay home obviously for the High Holidays and I remember coming back in after the High Holidays and someone saying, why were you out and I said, oh, it was yom. Kippur and. He got really mad they were like. How come you get that off and you get Christmas off? Why don't we get off and after that encounter anytime I would stay home because of a Jewish holiday I would lie and say that I had been sick. Wow. I WANNA, go back to your conversation with Dr Eager and I'd like for you to share what your biggest takeaways were. It's so powerful because she speaks about will lasting that her mother said to her in the cattle car. That essentially reality is whatever you have in your mind and in your heart. And bad things pass trauma passes and her first night there. Joseph Mangla went into the barracks and made her dance and she loved opera and she said that she got through it because she imagined that she was on a stage and they were playing Makovsky Romeo and Juliet. And she said and I danced beautifully and I loved it. That's how I survived. For me what was really remarkable was hearing everything that she went through and the fact that she landed. was that she was grateful for all of the terror and trauma and pain that she had experienced. She felt that she literally calls them a gift. That is something that is so amped medical to the way at least. I think about someone who has survived the Holocaust it really was a full paradigm shift for me to hear how she got there and ultimately how she healed herself. Yeah. Well, certainly, the testimonies of the survivors are a gift to all of us in terms of preserving the memory and the lessons that we can take from their experiences. So thank you for giving Dr, eager another platform to share that story with another audience that needs to learn and learn the lessons of her experience. I will tell you one of the most moving parts for me was the separation from her mother when they got to Auschwitz and how the experience of children being separated from their parents at the border was a trigger for her honestly I can't do it justice. Let's listen to a clip. Van. Is Show children being separated that their border? I had terrible night mash. Remember him and my mother was. Towed to go this way, I followed my mother. And this guy told me that I'm GONNA see my mother very soon. She just GonNa take a shower and promptly I was on the other side which meant life. So you see mandating trigger today for the me The time and everything was taken from me. Why was it important to include that in the podcast? I. Think when we witnessed that kind of wrongdoing that is really a crime against humanity, it reminds us how fragile we are. That we don't learn from the past potentially and we have to be vigilant every day in making sure that what we are putting out into the world is modeling compassionate. Inclusion.
EVIT Criminal Justice Instructor Derrell Branch & student Sheyla Vazquez
"Her on Sheila. Could you tell me about your experience at Edith? Yeah, even I joined last year like, mr. Branch said I just wanted to get like criminal justice classes and even it was like a great opportunity to get those college credits without paying a lot of money for it. And so right now I'm on track to get my associates in me. He's really not aside from being a student in the criminal justice program. She also participates in the Mesa Cadet program with the police department so off your first domestic a dense program, what is that? So the Mesa Police Cadets is built with like fourteen or Twenty and a half year old. It's a transition from high school to log. Forcement we do a lot of Mesa PD like community service. So let's community service look like we did the drug take-back people would drop off they're expired drugs and we would help out directing traffic asking how they are just so they know it's not just law enforcement. It's high schoolers who want to go into law enforcement and just getting that face-to-face with a service member what a wonderful opportunity. So I'm going to switch back to our instructor and how you see this being important in terms of the cadet program and other programs like and I think it's an invaluable because none of the hurdles that are students go through is that they graduate from high school usually around 18 years old and then police departments won't hire them as sworn officers until Twenty-One. There's a little Gap Thursday but a program like this the cadets were experiencing that exposure to the criminal justice system so that she can decide when she's old enough at 21 if that's career. She really wants to go into age. Mr. Branch, I don't want to pay that back to your background being important Career and Technical education is always been something that I'm I think is really really important that I'm passionate about because not only do the students get off an education. They also get real world experience. So that transition between being a law enforcement officer and then now being an instructor I'm able to teach the students from that real-world perspective. And what does it mean to you to have an instructor with this kind of experience. It just makes life and class so much easier when I love how my sister Branch looks at it like he lets us know what he did in the field and it's so much better if that makes sense great. It sounds like it's very important

But after the Fukushima nuclear disaster in two thousand eleven, the country took all of its nuclear reactors off line, which has led Japan to increasingly rely on fossil fuels and also solar power. NPR's cat ORF continues our series on recovery and Fukushima. She only endo is saying a final goodbye. To the home she once shared with her husband and three kids and for Cosima it's less than a mile from the Daiichi nuclear power plant where three reactors overheated and exploded in two thousand eleven.

The thing is pretty unceremonious though in reality she only says, she said goodbye to this part of her life. Disaster when her family piled into a car and drove as far south as they go to the southern tip of Japan on the island of Kyushu. Here, she's a single mom to her bubbly ten-year-old son Cagey who was just a baby when the disaster happened, he doesn't remember Shema at all her other two children are grown and live nearby, and she only has found herself within unlikely job running a small solar farm. On a big hill overlooking the tropical landscape Ma hidden is yet. She never imagined. My life would be like this guy when we first moved here, I was in my late thirties my husband was in his forties unanue issue we were like, okay. Do we get new jobs? So we decided to do this. We saw as investment for the future month on her husband worked at the Nuclear Power Plant for over twenty years and for him, the switch to solar was purposeful. He felt that nuclear power had betrayed him do on didn't He grew up really believing nuclear power was safe and then he lost his home to come see today the energy collected by these panels has allowed her to build a new life. The power is sold to the local utility company and brings in thousands of dollars a month when her husband died suddenly a few years ago she only took over the work and the family placed his grave in the center of the solar panels show me walks over to tall marblestone.

We can't deal with that kind of wasted drivers go. Joey's wish might not come true though her family started their business at the right time. The price was so generous and also delegration was sold loose. So anyone can register. Naida is the executive director of the Institute of Sustainable Energy Policies. In Tokyo, he says in the early years after the disaster Japan pushed renewables to help fill energy gap left after fifty four nuclear reactors were taken off line the. Government offered big incentives, new investors, lots of people like me and her husband jumped on board to build smaller operations. incorporations rushed in to build massive solar and wind farms but also the liberation was more strict compensation dropped. It got increasingly harder for alternative energy producers to connect into the power grid edith says, this was partly due to the big utility companies trying to maintain control and the government allowing. It to happen the sitting kind of a body of to north to Laputa increase anymore, the institutions make a big difference that's Jennifer Sclerosis of George. Mason University she studies energy policy in Japan, and she says, there is technology an interest for renewables in Japan, but the bigger power companies in government need to commit if people in place do not watch to implement policies to empower the economics and the. Technology innovation then it can't happen regardless of how advanced technologies earn regardless of how good the economics look many of the major utilities as well as the Japanese government are still waiting to see if nuclear power can make a comeback and renewables just aren't that reliable yet.

It's a real turnaround for a place where nuclear power ruled only a decade ago especially in the former exclusion zone near Daiichi, there are solar panels everywhere from small ones on roofs and hillsides to massive mega-farms along highways making use of land available after the disaster some of these panels are run by big developers and others are not. Lake the solar panels on farmer. She get Yuki Corneau's field. He's seventy four years old and this land has been in his family for generations he gestures around it. This is all my land, but it's nonsense. Nonsense because it's relatively useless the wind carried radioactive material here after the disaster and the government has scraped off all the topsoil in decontamination efforts. The farmers here can't really far much anymore. So small local power company came and asked sugar. Yuki if they could rent land for solar panels, he said, yes could you go I was really worried after the nuclear accident how would we get power most of his neighbors also agreed but that means everything is different. Now he says there were Rice patties all around here with tiny frogs that created a kind of soundtrack for his life now it's quiet. He misses the frogs a lot and he says, and he doesn't make nearly the same amount of money as he did farming. But She Yuki says he sees this as a necessary change. He has nine grandkids they all live far away now but they were just in town the other weekend for visit running through the fields. Suze my grandparents farmed here my parents do.

COVID-19: What You Need To Know
"This is an ABC news special. Kobe nineteen what you need to know here is. Abc News correspondent. Aaron Katersky as this school year nears an end. Parents wonder about the start of the next academic year. We'll schools welcome kids back. What will the classroom look like or will there still be online? Learning the answers dependent part. On what the virus does to kids and how kids transmit the virus. The World Health Organization said over the weekend that children appear to be less capable of spreading corona virus than adults. The comment came from the. Who's chief scientist? Sumio Swaminathan who appeared on the BBC? What we have seen in countries where schools remained open is that they have not been big outbreaks in schools and where there have been seen associated with we defense. A lot of people gather not in regular classrooms and it's often been associated with Donald who's had infection and who spread it so it does seem from what we know now that children are less capable of spreading it even if they get infection and certainly are very low risk of getting from the Z's for more on what all of this may mean. We're joined by Dr Edith Bradshaw Sanchez. A pediatrician and professor of pediatrics. At Columbia University. What do you make of her comments here? I think some of the reports that we're seen in the comments that were seeing from the. Who are definitely reassuring. I just want more data so a number of things have gone into into these comments from what I understand and there are countries that have opened schools Germany Denmark Some parts of Canada in those countries are not seeing big outbreaks of covert nineteen in children linked to schools which is reassuring but we just need more data. These countries have also done a variety of things to keep kids safe in school Germany. For example we've rent reports that they are having children self test every four days and given a green sticker to kids test negative and allowing them to walk around the school without a mask on some schools are taking temperature. Some schools have introduced a variety of social distancing in hygiene techniques. So so when we look at this at these reports and we we look at the lack of outbreaks linked to children after they were allowed to go back to school. It is reassuring but we have to remember that there are measures that these countries have taken and that we don't have all of the information yet. Really the bottom line is can. My kids hug their grandparents. Yeah I think that's such an interesting point for a long time and longtime in the cove world is a few months for a long time. We've been thinking about children in terms of the risk that they pose to adults. We've been saying okay. Well my kid goes back to school. Can they? Then come home and bring me the corner virus or bring the current virus to to grandma and GRANDPA if they visit in now. Not only. Is it that that is very much too little consideration? But now we're starting to learn for example that there is a new rare but serious complication of covert nineteen seems to affect children very differently than an affects adults. And now I think that the conversation starting to switch to what is the risk to children themselves from Bo Bo from going back to school. What's the answer? I wish I had it but I just don't know we just don't know there are reports for example right there. There is a report of a child. I believe from England who was in the French Alps and then went home. Was In contact with seventy two people that child himself tested positive for current a virus. None of the seventy two people. He came into contact with tested positive. So that was reassuring but then we had another report of a six month old whose parents had couvert nineteen and the child had to be cared for in the hospital and so they were constantly testing this little baby six months old and he shut the virus at very high levels for sixteen days. The data so far has been mixed in. I think that's why it's so important that we collect more data in children and the NIH as you probably have heard launched a study at the beginning of May to follow two thousand families to try to answer this question. What exactly is the rate of transmission? What exactly is the risk to children because we just haven't been collecting the data yet. Pediatric Multi Symptom Inflammatory Syndrome. What do we make of that? Does it matter whether it specifically connected to cove it as the CDC seems to suggest that it is? I do believe that it is linked to covert nineteen. And I'll tell you why. This new syndrome seems to have some characteristics of Kawasaki disease but it also has some characteristics. Overlap toxic shock syndrome. And I'll explain very very briefly Kentucky Diseases and inflammatory condition. It is cost by inflammation and then the the blood vessels in the body are affected. Ultimately different organs can be affected. The one that we worry about is the heart children present with fever with the red. Is the rash The swollen hands feed swollen. Lymph nodes some of the same symptoms that we are now seeing in this new condition but the difference one of the many differences that we're still learning is that these children were presenting with the new syndrome also seemed to have some of those symptoms from toxic shock. They are very sick when they present to care. They sometimes have low blood pressures and signs that there multiple there's multiple organ systems that are affected. And that doesn't go with Kawasaki. Disease it also here before cove it so we can of spectacularly Why are they testing? Summer testing negative for the antibodies and the virus itself. And that is absolutely puzzling. But I think at the end of the day you just sort of have to take a step back and think okay well. Even if it's not linked terrific can't prove it yet for some of these kids remember them majority are testing positive. And where was this before cove
Should I Prune My Magnolia?
"Bonnie is the reader and she says I want to know. If you should prune in Edith bogue Magnolia minds about eight to nine years old. She says it's getting rather bushy and is more of a Bush than a tree. She wants to know what she can do about that. So it's a kind of a bushy plant. Naturally it is. I grow a few by the Rhode Screen. And they're fantastic and they're totally evergreen in my six zone six a garden but they grow their shrubs grow more like Christmas trees the lollipops and right. I just make mine a little bit tidier every year. Just a bit But when could printer into along lollipop or enjoy it as a fat plant that you can't see the road through? I think though at eight to nine years I mean it's it wants to be parameter is at the word Akira middle. I don't never know how to pronounce that. Which Act the accent should be on which syllable right is that? The question So so you know it's it's Bushier at the bottom and then narrower at the top and that's natural habitat great right so if it were young plant in the Field at the wholesale nursery when it was a baby and it was getting trained. That would be. The time may be more to shape it a little. You know what I mean that. Not Eight or nine years after. She's had it which means it's probably fifteen years or whatever you know twelve thirteen years after it got its early training. Whatever that was so once they get going. They're pretty fast. I think atr nine. That's probably a pretty big plan. That's what I mean is that Yeah So yes you can't I would never cut partway into a branch of one of these would you? I mean I would take out a branch would no I? I think you could shape it. yeah. I think I think of them as again. They have such a distinctive shape. A form Willie this bogus is kind of chubby in the shade. There gangly kind of call do okay. And as he said in the field when it's trimmed it probably is a Christmas tree shape pretty much or something like that right but in a garden and with a little shade and depending on the moisture and everything it could be mine gets Kinda out of shape and I do just prune back. I'll prune hathaway on a branch ticket sticking out in the wrong direction and it looks like it's misshapen. Oh so you'll go back part of the way into one. Okay okay all right all right. Good so So so the reason I bring that questioning. Even though we're GONNA digress. Slightly is that that Magnolia as I've been corrected grandiflora which is what I meant to say. Not Virginia another native. Make million species right. You know those are native. But they're not native where you garden or where I garden And so you know we're WANNA add more natives to our landscapes and so forth and you know when you and I began gardening most of the sort of it plants and really. I think it's still in many cases were Asian plants plants of Asian origin. Yes mostly will. They were aliens. Yeah we're exotics because some came from your too but I'd say that was SORTA. The trendy thing was for Asian plants because for example Japan and a lot of China has a very similar climate to our house. Yes we're patron. Japan have been around for since like eighteen fifties or sixties but China. It all new. Yeah so you and I both began. We got the bug and we began a sort of collectors of cool things from oddball catalogs before the Internet. Not that we're older anything and in fact you even did a book called the collectors garden in Nineteen ninety-six but two years before that you already had an inkling about natives sort of before its time has come in a big way and you wrote a book called the Natural Habitat Garden in one thousand nine hundred ninety four and so here. Yeah well to yeah and you were kind enough to take meet all these incredible places where people who again were ahead of the curve gardening with natives. But here we are. We still kept collecting things. What are we doing sort of? What's the remedy you know if we WANNA be more ecological environmental etc? I mean I'm not throwing out my whole garden. That's the punchline for me but I'm trying to come up with ways to make room and I think you are too yes and encourage people to think about this in the future. I think that if I could have all native garden I would but it can't. It's not just because of the wonderful plants I planted over. The years has a lot to do with that but I will. There's some of them are so wonderful. So like you said I'm not gonNA plow them all under some of them are gigantic trees But I'm you know one thing I did is. I took a survey of the plants. That are here that are actually indigenous to my county in northwest corner of New Jersey and I found that there were over a hundred species in your garden. And they're planted like you know there's a flocks in with the other plants and there's somebody a an and you you probably remember. I have a woodland garden that I made from from the start twenty years ago with mostly plants from ten mile radius of this site and where I live but it's a very complex site because it's an island in a river and hardwood forest. So there's a lot to choose from but there is a lot to choose from many many places online. You're talking about online where you can find lists of plants that are indigenous or native to your area.
Fashion and War in America
"Are currently in the midst of international fashion week. Yes and last week. We talked about the origins of the semi-chaotic relationship between fashion and Hollywood film. But we only got into the nineteen thirties so today. We're moving out of the thirties and into the nineteen forties. Which of course takes US straight into World War Two and on the show? We've talked a lot about fashion and war as it relates to Europe during World War One and World War Two but less so about the relationship fashion and war in America and it's actually incredibly fascinating because throughout the nineteen thirties. America's changing perception of their homegrown talent was reflected in Ariz- leading fashion magazines. Such as Vogue and Harper's bazaar at both of those magazines began to feature American fashion designers more and more throughout the decade. Elizabeth Haase reflected on this transitory period in American fashion in her book. Fashion is spinach which was published in nineteen thirty eight and in it. She writes quote in the late twenties ninety percent of the drawings and photographs. Where the work? A prison couturiers and. She's talking about Vogue and Harper's bazaar and then she says many pages and both magazines are now devoted to close created in America for American Life. The outbreak of World War Two and nineteen thirty nine mark significant shift in the fate of American designers who having continued to operate in the shadow of Paris throughout the nineteen thirties. Were suddenly left to stand all on their own and during the German occupation of Paris from June nineteen forty to August nineteen forty four. Many of the leading French couture houses were forced to close and those that did remain open did so under severely limited operations and some pretty severe restrictions as well right and for those of our listeners. Who might not have heard? April actually did a fantastic interview on stuff. You Mr History class which we featured a couple months ago so check it out if you want to learn more about fashion world war two so for the French fashion industry. This meant that communication with America during World War Two. It meant that one of their most important export markets was almost entirely broken and in one thousand nine hundred one after American designers and manufacturers presented promising fall and spring collections New York Times fashion journalist Virginia Pope well. She declared Murck City to be the fashion center of the world and AIRCON designers may have come into their own during the war but they did so under restriction and regulation beginning in nineteen forty two American fashion designers had to grapple with restrictions imposed by regulation l eighty five which were government imposed sanctions at severely limited. Just what designers could and could not produce the purpose of l. eighty-five was to conserve materials. Needed for the war effort and this included fabrics such as silk cotton wool. Leather Rubber Nylon. So you know pretty much. Every material that you need to make clothing and footwear and the regulations thus restricted just. How much material could be used in the making of new garments so we had campaign such as make-do-and-mend which encouraged people to avoid shopping altogether by mending their old clothes. Something we of course support very much today. L. eighty-five essentially challenge the very nature of the fashion industry itself. As we all know depends on the production of new seasonal clothing styles to stimulate consumerism and as we establish last episode Hollywood films while they were actively complacent and encouraging fashion consumption throughout the nineteen thirties and costume designers like their fashion designer. Counterparts were not exempt from L. Eighty five regulations during the war in an eighteen. Forty four article in the New York Times renowned Hollywood costume designer. Edith head called L. Eighty five quote. The greatest boone ever came to fashion designers in Hollywood so it would appear casts that in the nineteen forties costume designers still considered themselves as fashion designers. And she goes on to say about eighty-five quote. It vanished super luxury and brought us all down to Earth. Today we create sensible styles for women the kind that they can actually wear and she goes on to say how. Well I remember the day when we would swirl Fox skins around the hem of a secretary address or wipe satin uniform on a trained nurse. Now we hold to stark realism and by this time had been the head designer at paramount. For seven years she had taken over for her predecessor. Travis Banton in nineteen thirty seven and head like baton began her career in film working with Howard greer in the nineteen twenties as a costume illustrator before climbing the ranks and indeed head is certainly one of the most prolific and fame designers from the Hollywood golden age. Numerous books have been written about this prolific designer who April has eight Academy Awards for best costume design and wait for it. She has four hundred and forty four credits. On that's intense. She worked for almost sixty years in the film industry so she had an incredible career her first credit it dates to nineteen twenty five and her last film is dead. Men Don't wear plaid with Steve Martin. That released after her death in nineteen eighty two so she died in one thousand nine hundred. One at the age of eighty. Three head is quoted and Margaret Bailey's nineteen eighty-two book those Glorious Glamour Years as saying quote. I do not consider a motion picture costume designer necessarily a fashion creator because we do the script tells us to if we do a period piece then we recreate fashion. That was done before. And if we have a character role we do character close. It is only by the accident of a script that calls for fashion an actress that can wear fashion that some of the beautiful clothes will emerge. I don't consider myself a designer in the sense of fashion designer. I am a motion picture costume designer. So just how did head go from identifying as a fashion designer in Hollywood and the nineteen forties to firmly distinguishing herself as a costume designer by the end of her career? I love this answer. You pro because it actually lies with the advent of yours new-look which is a little unexpected as many of us know nineteen forty seven witnessed this dramatic and sudden change in fashion. Thanks to the unprecedented success of Christiane Yours Premier collection and he introduced dresses with nipped in ways. Those padded hips and full long skirts and they stood in direct contrast to the war regulated fashions of years prior which is why so many people loved them. Unfortunately for the many films released the year that this change took place. The costumes were immediately glaringly out of fashion again. Dino Dior's new look was significant reminder. That though film cost you may be perceived and interpreted as fashion it will never be able to truly contend with the whims and follies of contemporary trends. And Edith. Had designed costumes for eleven films that were released in nineteen forty seven so to say that she was affected is a bit of an understatement. Here and looking on this period for the book. Edith head's Hollywood edith reflected quote. I learned my lesson. The hard way just offered Dior brought out the new look every film I had done in the past few months. Looked like something from the bread lines with each screening. I vowed that I would never get caught by fashion trend again and became a confirmed fence sitter. Although despite her weariness of fashion trends did not keep her designs from apparently sparking them as was the case with address she designed for Elizabeth Taylor and a place in the sun which was a nineteen fifty film in a nineteen seventy-eight article for the American Film Journal. Edith wrote my dress for Elizabeth Taylor and a place in the sun was taken up by manufacturer of debutante Party dresses. Someone at paramount wants counted at a party thirty seven Elizabeth Taylor's dancing. All studio designers have created something that influences fashion. But a good costume designer. Shouldn't try to influence style though. Naturally he hopes to hit upon something that many people will like

Seventy five years ago Soviet soldiers liberated the Auschwitz death. Camp Edith Grossman was seventeen. Seventeen years old when she and her sister Laya arrived at Auschwitz from Slovakia part of the first official transport of Jews to that Camp Edith is now ninety eighty five and lives in Toronto and joins me in studio. Her story is part of a new book called nine nine nine. The extraordinary young women of the first official Jewish transport two outfits the author. Heather mcadam joins us from New York City. Good Morning Good Morning Good Morning. Good Day Edith. A wonder if you could start by telling me about what life was like in the town that you lived in Slovakia when the government the Nazi back into powder in fifty and so from March nineteen thirteen nine Slovak state and independent state route our our laws against the Jews. These Indian newspaper our lows against the Jews I've streaked and then Jerem German sprout proud of it you know and the president will say we'll say priest doctor diesel a Catholic priest in signed everything so so he'd begun the juice juice could have or the goal or they have to give up they could have domesticated animal Matica. Don't they don't will. They could leave on the main. The main steady you know heather white in you've written about this. Why did the government at the time decide to send those Jewish girls and women into Nazi Germany? Well it's it is a big mystery Why would you pick teenage girls to go literally literally demolition buildings? That was the idea that they were going to build The new homes where the Jews were going to be rehome that was the euphemism. Awesome for death That the Slovak Republic used or the Slovaks use sorry There's no actual paperwork no documentation stating why they would use young women however Doctor Pavel Meshed An and other historians around this history and myself included. You know there's a couple of reasons that we come up with one is if you want to destroy race of people you attack. Young Women Because they are your next generation. They're they're going to carry the next generation and women are nurtures of culture. The other thing is that parents were more likely to give up their daughters than their sons and so You know the end and they were lied to so Edith's parents and all of the parents they were told the girls were going to work in a factory for three months and Slovakia was the largest manufacturer of army boots and so everybody thought. Oh It'd be a shoe. Factory may be Munitions Factory They'll go away for three months. Then they'll come home. They had no idea that they were going to Auschwitz and it was just a blatant lie in in order to get parents to let their daughters go which of course A few months later. They President T.. So the Catholic priest said well. Oh who wants to join your daughters and everybody said yeah so I tell you something. My Mother didn't want to let us go specialty. Did Not because of me she. She looked at me. I was the smallest in the family. You know leverage store and the and the ad a human being educated and Dole and beautiful and and so my mother sent layout you go you will go to Hungary and my father author sit. I don't let my kindle keep kids away from me I am the father. I am responsible for the kids. and My mother said about Luke d'oro so he said it's a bad law but we have to respect it and you know my father died v. so to believe that layer is dead. He couldn't catch himself DETI. He let he's that die. He you know heather. What do we know about how the parents of these girls reacted when they learned that that that their daughters weren't Being sent to work in some sort of shoe factory that they're being sent they didn't find out until they arrived in Auschwitz and part of you know and they were on their way eight of the gas chambers Part of the story You know this is a multiple narrative. So Edith story forms at a narrative spine for the book but I have loads of free search of other families survivors. Non Non survivors and one of the stories is the Hartman family which is just heartbreaking. And there's postcards that go back and forth forth between the family and Slovakia and and Cousin of hartman daughters and the you know the postcards they they have no idea they just don't understand that keeps saying. Why haven't we heard from MEG? Duska Newton see and and and of course the postcards coming back from Birkenau. Now are coded and they're coded so well that the family can't tell that those girls are already dead and it goes on for two years and and it's just heartbreaking so parents just they didn't find out edith's father Emmanuel Friedman sent somebody who worked in his. His store are two outfits to try and free the girls who was a gentile and he went with their paperwork to try and free them.

"Called Eleven which is not currently in print and it has not one but two stories about snails? Oh I love the snow stories. And I'm Oh I'm GonNa do is if you don't want to hear spoilers go forward two minutes 'cause I'm going to read the final two paragraphs of this story story so it starts. When Mr Pizza cannot put to begin to make a hobby of snail-watching? He had no idea that his handful of specimens estimates would become hundreds in no time now that in and of itself is a magnificent opening statement of intense now fast forward to the penultimate paragraph a snail crawled into his mouth. He spat it out in disgust gust. He tried to brush the snails off his owns. But for every hundred he dislodged four hundred seem to slide upon him and falls into him again and as if they deliberately sought him out as the only comparatively snail free surface in the room. There were snails cruel cruel ing over his always and then just as he staggered to his feet. Something else hit him. Mr Robert couldn't even see what he was fainting. Wanting any rights. He was on the floor. His arms felt like leaden whites as he tried to reach his nostrils. His is to free even from the ceiling. Murderous snail bodies help he swallowed a show. It's almost becomes funny because of the reputation the words snail. Anyway I'll keep going choking. He widened his mouth and felt a snail crawl over his lips onto his tongue. He was in Hell Hale he could feel them gliding over his legs. Like a glutinous river pinning eggs legs to the floor. His breath came enfeebled gulfs. His vision grew black a horrible undulating black. He could not breathe a tool because he could not reach his nostrils could not move his hands then been through the slit of one guy. He sold directly in front of him only inches away. What had been? He knew the rubber plants aunt that stood in its port near the dual. A pair of snails were quietly making love in it and right beside them. mm-hmm tiny snails pure as Jew drops were emerging from the pit like an infinite army into their widening world. Aw I feel. Pat Might be revealing something herself in in that story about her feelings about how she treats characters right. Where do you get your ideas from Miss Highsmith Charon? And what does this book have. Say What is the story have to say about the role of women in the period. The hoist faces Royston. Now so she's wanting from the mid fifty s to the mid Seventies. which in theory is a period of liberal liberation? Yeah I felt she was very well. Edith Edith was very almost not there a lot of the time she was going through her motherly. GT's UT's really super doing basically the barest minimum. I fell a lot of the time but also she gives up a bit. That doesn't she starts off cleaning everything and Minnesota yeah becomes she gets more and more disheartened with feeding George. Yeah that to me was the most human cider house. She cared for George George even though she did you know starts really resented. She still did it until the end but it was more of mothering really with liffey that uh-huh demonstrated how she couldn't quite bring us off to do it but sort of got food ready but that was about you know she just left him to his own in devices. The the book is Basically Patricia. Highsmith saying that the life is in the book is in the writing and all the rest of it or if she does enjoy a drink and not drinking and smoking cessation rising. But it's it's not really there. It's it's the life his elsewhere and suit of theirs she's just not quite present. I think is a character and say she saying really that that that the she's eight hundred critique I think of also it's quite a critique of of marriage int- all of those sorts of domestic. Yeah yeah she was very very eccentric. Domestic wasn't she was sort of cleanliness fetish but also didn't like eating much as a great list of stuff that she liked liked and didn't like in the biography thing she did like we're box. Matthew Passion old clothes sneakers the absence of noise Mexican Food Fountain Pens Swiss Army Knives. Life's weekends with no social commitments Catholic and being alone things disliked the music of Sibelius the art of leisure live concerts for cooked meals television sets the beginning Sharon regime loud mouth people. And those who borrow money being recognized by strangers in the street fascists and burglars to this that she could have added suicide and actually regarded as cowardly that loves snails. Love Crime in the book. He's he's on its own. The thing is as I say this it sounds really crap And it's a tribute to Patricia Highsmith. Artistry that of course it doesn't feel the to crap when you read the novel but the crime is what the expectations of a woman could be over a twenty year period. And so that sends Karen you were saying about how she kind of loses energy and hope you can feel depression beginning getting to creep in. She can't do things and you can see that. She is a product of her environment. The national environment. That seems to be a big thing in this book for Highsmith smithian nodal such a domestic environment as well right. Yeah tightly she so there's this split and I think that said it's like the suit of physical edith gives gives up and the The diary if takes on a life having grandchildren it which is almost like an a repetition of of of what she's trying to avoid and so it's it's like a whole hall of mirrors in in a weird way. It's costly and I needed that because I feel like she's coming through me. She produce because it is her losing her reality if you look at the diary and see what the aspirations expressed in the impossible possible dream. Life of the diary. They're quite depressing. To only the rancho she wants to kind of lifestyle that is being fed. I took through television. Sort of you know what she gets through to the husband he disappears but she wants to son to have a happy loving marriage and at working in the oil industry in Kuwait. Yes yes having kids and celebrating Christmas. Almost a parody of sort of nineteen fifties happy happy family. That's the thing that is so arresting. I think I think about the book is. Is that you you kind of know that it's not gonNA end. Well there's a sense of gathering because and it's also it's Patricia Highsmith so you figure this isn't GonNA end. Well for Edith. But in fact I mean we're not giving away any spoilers. The ending his subsequent flashes. Well I sort of feel quite often as Whoa that as you get near the end of the book and so the second half of the book those aspirations from the diary she begins to try and replicate them in real life in the way that she's not doing in the first half the book so there's holes he he's trying to paint outside of the house so the outside of the House looks like this beautiful kind of keeping up with the Joneses. Kind of you've aspiration however the inside of the house is getting more remorse. Ramshackle and dirty Yes an awful no says she takes up sculpting and she scoped she scoped hopes and much more handsome head of classy than actual head. which everybody's very impressed by it because it's like is like the kind of cliff? Everybody wishes insisted. Yeah Yeah Yeah. By the end of it she scoped it the heads of the two imaginary grandchildren as well. But I love the idea within because well. You can't tell how talented she is in terms of creativity in other words she knows the opponent of the off-the-peg the peg aspirational lifestyle is that she should have a an interest in politics and be she should be a creative person but you have no sense of satisfying her. I mean I think one of the things. The book is about is about creativity. The diary is the surrogate for a northern novel. One little bit of good right I think in the diary. Which is she writes a poem into into Dari misery which goes at dawn after my death hours before the sunlight will spread at seven o'clock as usual on these trees which I know greenness will burst dark? Green shadows yield to the cruel benign in different son in different will stand the trees in my own garden on weeping for me on the morning of my death same same as ever routes a thirst the trees will rest in Brislin stone blind uncaring. The trees that I knew you that I tended and that was read out. heus mysterious as well. We were talking earlier earlier about Reuters routines and as luck would have it. We have a clip of Patricia highsmith appearing to talk about her routine as a writer. Have you got very strong routine in your day of discipline. If I'm working on a novel I like to do eight pages a day and almost the the same with short story short story can do ten and I try to To Take Care of the boring things in the in the morning and Work maybe four or five hours a day when you say the boring things what do you mean sure is like shopping writing a business business letter or things like that. Do you write in free hand or do you type. Your books are always on the typewriter. And where do you begin. You begin with the plot the book or are what I think I begin with certain action. Say maybe a kidnapping in the book or it's it's not an entire plot but I have to go the beef then forwards and then not primary I should say to go backwards to put came before and then forwards in the in my own thinking it tells you nothing nothing apart from lessing Mavis Nicholson knows how utterly weary shaved Mavis. There's no cousin goes well with the pen or a waltz. Think Oh my God still fifteen minutes on Thames. Slight risk that we might have made this book sound dull and unpleasant but it is like all of I Smith. I think he is readable to the point of you know you you you get stuck in you. You have to go put down extraordinary well. It's very funny in places and I think you know that she can get so much humor. Our of such adult characters and circumstances is kind of amazing and it's obviously very bleak humor that a fantastic set piece where cliff basically has has been drunk driving. He mows down a guy a middle aged businessman One Nine on his home breaks these legs and eat his forces him to go and visit him on. The visit is absolutely brilliant. I thought I would read that.

The only facts known about giant squid were gathered from their massive dead bodies since live ones had never been seen then then in two thousand and four the first live images of giant squid were captured and in two thousand twelve. The first video of a giant squid emerged thanks to medusa capturing specimen swimming off of japan's cassara archipelago. It wasn't until june of two thousand nineteen that another medusa shot giant squid video came to light this time of a roughly ten foot long. That's three remitters young swimmer in u._s. Waters around the gulf of mexico june twenty nineteen marked the fifth deployment of medusa on this particular expedition and when witter and her team examined the video the undeniable footage of a long tentacle creature reaching out for the jelly. It's hard to tell exactly how big it was because it was heading straight towards the camera. All these years of underwater chasing begs the question. Why are these animals so camera. Shy in the first place witter said the giant giant squid has been elusive because our standard methods of exploration using platforms with bright lights and noisy thrusters has been scaring away the only reason we even knew giant squid existed assisted is because they happen to float when they die so dead and dying specimens have been seen and photographed surface. How many other animals are they're living in the deep sea that we don't know about because we've been scaring them away and they don't happen to float when they die a good and perhaps even more disconcerting question indeed today's episode was written by michelle concept dusky and produced by tyler.

"The guilty. Verdict was delivered on the eleventh of December both Edith and Frederick was sentenced to death by hanging to the salacious delight of the newspaper voters in the press gallery Edith collapsed in hysterics at the news while Frederick shouted loudly about rennaissance since he was nine years young than her commentators enjoyed portraying him as an innocent youth led astray by manipulative older woman. He was a mere romantic chivalrous. Boy one wrote. Of course, this could have been what happened if Edith Thompson was indeed manipulative enough to have pushed Frederick by as buttons until he stabbed her husband to death. It is possible that she could also put on her extraordinary contradictory courtroom performance because she thought it would muddy the waters and get him a lighter sentence. It seems less likely though than the theory that ran a vice and others of put forward. Edith was just a sentimental flight. Young woman who completely lost her head when her romantic love took things too. For. A big part of miscalculation was in how the public and crucially the jury would respond to letters. It's possible. Of course, the thought Frederick would destroy them. So they could never be read by anyone. There was a heavy vein of sexism in the way that the case against her was built because the prosecution argued that love fanciful remanded books led her to indulge in lethal fantasies eventually lead to action. They made no such claim about by waters. Of course, he was reading will this stuff too. There was still ideas around in the nineteen twenties about the harmful effective, romantic or sentimental. Fictional women. It lingered for a long time because it's the same joke that Jane Austen was making fun of when she wrote north hangar abbey in eighteen or three Frederick did say during the trial that Edith liked to read a book imagine herself as the character in the book, not thinking that the jury would take that as an indication that she actually wanted to act out the role of murderous in the thrillers that she enjoyed reading Edith biographer Ren a vice. Has also hinted. A theme I discussed in the first episode of this podcast as an explanation for why she was convicted without any substantial evidence against her in nineteen twenty two Britain was still gripped by the idea compounded by the figures released for the nineteen twenty one senses that the country contained over a million more women than men after all of the male casualties in the first World War as I showed in that episode. This isn't strictly correct demographic terms, but this idea of the surplus women as disposable and unwanted was a powerful force regardless and to social conservatives at the time Edith Thompson was not a womanly woman. She worked she danced she'd been married for six years without having a child so presumably used contraception and she wrote in her letters to buy waters about how she enjoyed sex and had had an abortion if guilty. She had also wrote about the needless deaths of two men seen in this light. It's no wonder she was sentenced to death. She was a surplus woman written would be better off without a Louis did appeal the verdict, but unsuccessfully there was even public petition to stop the executions of Edith in Frederick with over a million signatures, but that was rejected to less than a month after her conviction. Edith was dragged into that shed Holloway prison and hanged as well. As being almost unconscious when it happened. She also bled a lot. I witnesses said it looked like insides fell out subsequent commentators, including vice have interpreted this as miscarriage suggesting that it was possible that Edith was pregnant if so she should never have been hanged the lower of the time forbade it even if not it was rever woman to be hanged the tool.

On the third of Tober Edith and her husband were walking home from Ilford station late at night after going to the theatre in central London. When a man jumped out from behind some bushes by the road and attacked Percy with a knife attack around away and fatally wounded Percy died before help arrived. Later. Neighbors reported hearing a woman screaming no don't repeatedly at the time of the attack. When the police arrived Edith identified the attacker as Frederick by waters and explained his connection to herself. And her husband. I can only assume that she was confident at this point that she was considered to be just a witness to the crime. Otherwise, it seems like a strangely helpful way for murder suspect to behave. It was only after detectives had investigated by waters and found all of Edith let as he had kept that she was drawn into the investigation proper, the letters you see contained references to set and thrill as Edith had read including one called Bella Donna by Robert Hitchens in which a wife poisons husband as well as frequently declaring a passionate love for Frederick. These missives also hinted at a desire that he should replace perseus her husband possibly using violent means to bring this about if necessary at one point she claimed to Frederick that she tried to murder Percy by putting ground up. Glass in his mashed potato. She also made reference to young woman who lost three husbands while she Edith, cont even lose one. This was enough apparent knee for the police to invoke the lore of common purpose under which all those you plan to murder share, criminal liability for it. Even if only one physically carried out the attack the letters with their inclusion of husband murder tropes hinted Edith complicity in the attack. The police felt both Frederick and Edith were arrested and charged with Percy's murder..

"It reads like a ready made morality tale or an inverted very story in which the heroine finds how prince only for her happily ever often it turned into a nightmare that ends in the hangman's noose a caused a sensation. While it was happening in nineteen twenty two and it has continued to fascinate people ever since the events themselves. What we would call the plot. If this was a novel rather than a horrifying Mitri story a shocking enough, but it's really the characters and backgrounds of the people involved make this tale. So compelling and to really understand that we need to go right back to the beginning. It is great him was bone on Christmas day in eighteen ninety three in east London. She was the eldest of five children of prosperous lower middle class. Parents her father William was o'clock and her mother Ethel, a housewife whose father was a policeman. William also had a part time job as a dancing teacher. And his daughter grew up to love before me. She left school at the age of fifteen in nineteen o nine and worked in the fashion industry doing well at a London Millan reform. She was promoted several times until she became their teeth buyer and even traveled twice to Paris work before the idea of the flapper had really taken stronghold in the British psyche. Edith exhibited a lot of the traits associated with that nineteen twenty stereotype, she was a hardworking career woman. She loved her fun. She put off having children, she had bobbed hair. She spoke French the list goes on. In nineteen oh nine Edith. Also, Matt Percy Thompson as shipping clock. Three years has senior. They were engaged for six years eventually getting married in nineteen sixteen when Edith was twenty one she kept working and the pair initially lived in south end before buying a house in the Audi's London bar of Ilford, the Thompsons live what appeared to be a happy, comfortable, married life. But judging by what happened next it would seem Edith was actually board or even depressed an Uni suburban grown up existence. The fateful meeting that would set Edith on the course to that boatswain's chair happened in nineteen twenty when she we connected with a young man, she had first met nine years before when he took dancing lessons from her father Frederik by waters was now in eighteen year old ships known Reese, you it. He was handsome and full of stories about his travels at sea. He was already friendly with Edith younger sister. Avis, and it seems that Percy like Tim to I. Because all four of them went on holiday that summit. The isle of white afterwards Percy suggested that Frederick lodge with the Thompsons in Ilford on the rare occasions that he got leave from his ship. And by what is accepted? What happened next feels inevitable? Now looking back at this story with the advantage of hindsight. But I'm sure is Edith was living it she felt like every glance from Frederick held a new and fascinating tential to save her from her humdrum existence. Not long after returning from that some holiday she and Frederick began an affair conducted under her husband's knows the house in Ilford. Of course, Bessie found out in the ensuing argument Frederick demanded that her husband allow if divorce that others could be together. But Percy just raged banished him from the house. Edith said later that Percy became violent afterwards hitting her several times and throwing her across the room. Frederick went to see again his job in September nineteen twenty one and remained away for a whole year. It's not hard to imagine the dispatch that Edith faced while he was away her borings above in life, rendered even worse by the deteriorating state of marriage. The really remarkable part of this. Story. And ironically, the thing that probably influenced the jury Edith trial. The most is what she did during that year that Frederick was away at sea.

Week without breaking my arm, Pat myself on the back. I mean, the stock strata was like two weeks ago. So I mean, it just went parabolic when it broke out at one ninety. Five to new highs is I think it's up forty five percent from those April lows post that Cambridge Analytica scandal. I mean, here's the thing. I think this enthusiasm just got a little a little too much. So when you think about it, what am you're focused on here? US and Canada. One hundred and eighty five million users. It's kind of plateaued over the last year. And so the issue is at loads, how much can they monetize existing users? That's why they're giving us new metrics. I think it's really important to remember that their average revenue per user in the US and Canada is almost three x that of Europe. So when you think about GDP, are the regulations over there causing users to decline? It's not the biggest deal in the world and just saying, so really the issue is what is the fallout from all the expense, the Spencer expenses that they have to deal with this election that's coming up to deal with all the issues that they had. They told us last year there were doubling employs insecurity from ten thousand and twenty thousand. We know it's going to March. Margins are not the issue for this company. Let's be clear and to me, you know, I'm not. I'm been real bullets on this last run in Facebook. So I've been wrong, but you have to point out that this is for the scale these guys have for the size of this company. This is arguably the most compelling story of breadth of profitability of growth and the ability to actually have margin. So I mean there they're north sixty percent on the margins. Yeah, they've been squeezed a little bit, but I mean, that's the story. Now, the big issue for me is exit stencil. Are these guys going through a place where the centralized platform is? Is the parasite? And I, I think there's a lot of people that feel that. What do you do with the nine percent decline by Edith? Yeah, I like I love the verticals any. Like you mentioned, we've pulled all the way back to where it was two weeks ago. I mean, I was just looking at about July six. There was trading right around this two hundred dollar level, but I think I think the focus was the patient was, hey, they're probably gonna miss on some of the monthly active users daily active user. So I think that should have been expected. It looks like the reactions telling us it wasn't so everybody's selling it off. I think that creates opportunity. This is. Company that trades it a very reasonable multiple continues to grow at an incredible pace. It's Graham messenger, what's up all of that, and the fact that they're going to be moving more and more into the video side of things. I think this thing is very cheap, two hundred bucks what we start to show with less..
