Where people you know when i think and i don't know how you feel you can definitely tell me you know when i see that somebody hosted a game show for thirty years or did good morning los angeles for twenty five years. Everyone thinks well. What a career. That guy really hit the lottery. You know thirty years working. And i think i feel sorry for them and they go and i go because part of the reason i wanted to get into this business was variety. Everyone thinks it's about money it's really about. I'm sitting across from kevin costner. Doing a podcast right now. And as soon as we're done i'm going to walk back to the other warehouse and we're going to have conference call about the trailer for my independent movie. And we're going to look at the poster. We're gonna try to design the poster. Then i'm gonna walk back here. And i'm going to another podcast but it's going to be about cars and walk back and we're going to work on this. Paul newman documentary that variety part. And as i always say when you hear about the guy working at the postal sorting facility for forty one years you feel sorry for me to go. Why and he goes because he is in the same place for forty years. Look at the clock. You just when when i when i hit on acting when i hit on every you just don't look at the clock you you work late in your work with your friends and you laugh about stuff and you know early on. You're pissed off about everybody else. It is successful. You look at somebody on tv and go. I'm better than them. You just can't help but do it but you're going to. How do i get there eventually. Kind of dropped the. I'm better than them. And you just go to you. Just go to work you know and you and Yeah it's nice to not. It's i can do anything i want. I really can reinvent my life. And i tell you the day. That movies don't mean anything to me. I won't do them right. You know but my life outside. The movies are so. It is so much bigger than the movies. I mean i have these things. I'm seen on television. i'm sitting on. The couch is talking to the guys on the radio. I'm doing things but honestly And but people really out there. Probably they don't want to buy and they wanna say oh. Yeah sure but it is. It is it is seeing my My kids I in little league. It is seeing my my daughter Like the dresses more than the ballet. So she's four years old she just rather by the dresses you know at that. My kids are amazed me they are really funny and i and my older kids you know was sixty years old man and january eighteen sixty years. Old guys like mind boggling But i i had my twenty seven my twenty nine and my thirty one year old daughter stand up and talk about me in front of like a hundred my friends and and There was a moment in time when they couldn't cross the street by themselves. But then to have them articulate who. I wasn't their life in front of my friends was Powerful and. I have that that in on film. That's not for anybody else. But i have that in in my life more often is about that than it is how it is. I am known somebody Matt from san. Jose has a question. He's been waiting to ask you for a few minutes. Matt twenty five. Am ganga good man. Good kevin costner. I'm a big fan. Thanks matt i was wondering you've done a lot of movies since like the early eighties Than a long time but throughout that time. Which movie did you enjoy making the most. Yeah that's you know man. I'll tell you because. I kind of pick carefully because i kind of do the things that like. I said earlier that i fall in love with. There's a lot that i can look at it. And you know. I mean i love making fandango you know i. I loved making the untouchables. I love making the westerns open range. You know pitching a perfect game in yankee stadium so you can see right away. Why one wouldn't stand out more than more than the other and probably because of that. You know when people come up to me and want to say what movie is their favourite. Let alone me san. What my favorite is is. I never know what's going to come out of their mouth and that actually feels good to me. I think if one hundred people came up to me and said one movie then number one. That would be interesting. That one hundred people came up to you but the idea that that it could be you know it usually is wanna ten movies that people will talk about actually feel really good about that so drilling down on the one movie. I don't know man i you know Maybe bull durham. You know maybe open range. I love the scene and bull. Durham where everyone is standing at. The pitcher's mound trying to figure out the wedding gift. Yeah i think it's a wedding gift either way the gift. Yeah and it's such a. It's such a crazy. The minor league. It's the minor leagues. And you know. And ron shelton. Who wrote that. Who wrote ten cup is number one in a row. Those buses he played with bobby gretchen. Don bailer in. He didn't make it to the initials he didn't make it to the bigs. But i'm sure when i think about that that those guys probably looked back at him. You know always writing notes on what's shelton up to. Yeah yeah oh so. Yeah because that really bull.

"In that place now of course as they have for decades the north korean government just like the venezuelan government and other you know failing communist nations blamed the united states. Of course it's all the united states is fault is why they can't have food. Which is ridiculous right like absurd. I don't disagree. The sanctions should end. There should be no such thing as us sanctions. Anyone in the united states should be free to send foods and monies and goods trade buy sell. Do whatever it is with any any person anywhere on the planet that is what creates prosperity. Yes and that's what freedom's should should mean for people but yeah and we don't have that here in the united states it's not a free country but that aside even with the sanctions as you pointed out matt. North korea isn't some sort of barren wasteland. As far as like the you know it's not covered in snow three hundred and sixty five days a year. They do get snow. It does get very cold there. But so does new hampshire. And we've got plenty in new hampshire and there are plenty of vegetable items that will grow in very inhospitable Climates and things like cabbage is a great example the crowd you can go crag cabbage kale some of that stuff. Go right up into the snow. Sure and there are of course things such as greenhouses or whatever but share so how is it that countries all around the planet with similar climates can prosper. But have surpluses yeah right that they're selling to other people in the world but yet north korea can't feed. It's not only. Can they not feed their own people. They can't even get enough. They can basically they live on donations. Totally there the there's food that's brought in their by the united nations by you know china or whatever there's a lot of donations given to this particular jack. Their manufacturing bases nothing. It's dismal exist. The more you read about north korea the it's just fascinating and we'll get into more of the story but you can also bring up whatever's on your mind so let's go to your calls and thoughts. Were going to go first to rick. He's in new hampshire. Rick you're on free talk live go ahead. Hey how are you guys saying. What's on your mind rick. So the a theory affair thing. What do you guys think. Going on with that jenner. You're done imagine being that board. That guy seriously can't imagine having that little of friends. Yeah in calling from his mom's phone to we looked his phone over at the same guys last time. It was a different guy really. Yeah yeah i didn't. I didn't look up the last guy's number but this was like all right. We've been we've been getting hit by these crank callers over the past couple of nights and at least be funny legged max like a scam but not funny. Yeah it's it's even worse than a theory amax. At least somebody got rich off of that just like these guys are just wasting their time. You know anyway. Two zero two three zero three six nine nine. It doesn't do it and the funny thing is i. I let them know when they call them like just so you know you know. You can't say certain words on the radio there listening on the internet and we can dump your call so like the people on twitch heard you say that because our failings yeah you we can't dump the audio feed off of the video streaming platforms because it wouldn't make sense. You can't. it's not easy to do that. Technically and ultimately it doesn't really matter. I mean at all you know. It doesn't matter if the ten people or whatever who are watching on twitch heard you say that because they're mostly your buddies it's like you haven't made an impact. I don't even think that they would want to go show. They're buddies that they said those things. I mean it's not like what kind of low rent buddies d you have like. You know. I've had some people in my friend groups in the past who were pretty low red but they were the one in the group that was low rent. You know well. Somebody came on some yelled at our house yelled. You're an effing n word at our house the other day and it just makes me think. Who's what what is your moral high ground. Do you think you have over ian freeman. When you're like literally what if what if we have like a black neighbor as you probably just literally terrorized people. Well the odds are we don't have black neighbors. This is new hampshire keen teens. Worse than the rest of new hampshire is black. Lives matter allying keenum. Yeah that's true that's still just like it's the it's the point like you yelled in public. It's stupid whatever it is whether they used the n. Word or not. It's still just stupidity that you know whatever they. They don't even really deserve to be talked about but nonetheless they called in so and you can call in to two two three eight zero thirty six ninety nine. We might waste time talking about whatever dumb stuff that you might say but hopefully we'll get some intelligent callers tonight. That'd be nice for a change. So what we were talking about with north korea. Matt is that there once again at knitting publicly because they've been having trouble with food the whole time you know they have like they say they need five point seven five million tons of food a year to feed twenty five million people with that sounds late to me. Probably gonna your big fat. American eats all day long. You don't have rations. I don't have yeah. I mean we've got a lot of problems in the united states and we're certainly good at identifying knows but one thing we don't have a problem with here is lack of food. There's a there's plenty of tons and americans have put on a lot of ways. We whip tons of food and the garbage. We do as a matter of course in hits doing that. But we got a nasty salsa the other day and we were just like keeping that. Yeah salsa last year too. there's some nasty salsas. It was shockingly bad. I hate throwing me too. But anyway they They say this year they're going to be one point. Three five million tonnes short. Kim jong is blaming it on typhoons and flooding as well as a shortage of farming equipment and the covid nineteen pandemic. Let's stop it right there. They do have a shortage of farming equipment. Sure i found anything well and also they don't have any wealth right because they don't manufacture anything. Remember the or what they do. Manufacturers communist controlled for so it is a communist nation in the sort of classic russian style socialism right. This isn't democratic socialism. Which is just another buzz term for another. This is a riot of this socialism. Yeah this is the most hardcore form of communism out there on the planet right now. No form of socialism works economically does not In varying varying degrees of depending on how much capitalism they will allow to occur. They will have a better lifestyle. If if you have full capitalism then you have the best possible levels of prosperity and happiness that you can get which kind of what the united states was between seventeen seventy six and eighteen sixty years right. So you've got a bunch of reasons. Why north korea doesn't have working farm equipment. They spend money on war. Which is the number one way to keep your people down by spending money on unproductive things that bring no value back to you absolutely true. And because they're centrally controlled. As far as their economy is concerned they may decide. We will allocate this number of tractors to this area of land. Okay fine and let's say they did have enough money that they managed to printer steeler however it is they they got it to where they could import a tractor because there are tractors in the world and clearly they. The state has things right. Like if you look at pictures of kim jong un. there's like you know computer monitors behind him. He's got they've got some things. None of them were made in north korea. Probably not but they were able to purchase them from there. But central planning centrally controlled planning doesn't.

"I don't think that's in we we just to do looks like Henry Winkler so that's what he's trending evil Henry Winkler with some choice words here and so I know him he's going he's waking up all what what it what I say so he's trending he's won the top trend is on on Twitter today it said it's a bill that looks like the funds has nothing to do with the and somebody says Emery Winkler is a national treasure I refused associate him with anything that isn't completely awesome and then the the mice's me checking Twitter to make sure that Henry Winkler's okay yeah I that's why I thought I mean normally when you see some main trimming it means they they kicked off so Henry Winkler I guess is still is still with us folks anyway so what else we got out there for you we gotta build the M. Nathan Bedford Forrest day I don't know why we have this and I didn't even really mean I I've you know I've been in Tennessee for like ever like ever you know like you know and I don't remember Nathan Bedford Forrest day they say it's a state holiday I don't know I mean we don't take offer anything for anything but for for if you really think I was just a day to commemorate that's a big difference this is from channel five then a builder in Nathan Bedford Forrest day is a state holiday narrowly passed the Tennessee house committee by one vote this afternoon forest is a controversial figure in Tennessee's history as a slave trader in the first grand wizard of the KKK is also known as a historic general in the Confederate army see this is the thing all right let me just say this but make them better for far I think that the Nathan Bedford Forrest is an interesting figure in Tennessee history should be studied for the good the bad the ugly everything about him he was a brilliant strategy brilliant general he also was the first grand wizard of the KKK but my understanding is he also quit the KKK when they became violent and so I mean that there's a it's a new one thing of things great guy but we don't have to have a day after him doing momentum to me there are much more important figures in Tennessee's history do we have Andrew Jackson day I don't know I would think he's a lot more important figure the Nathan Bedford Forrest but that's not to say that we completely erase Nathan Bedford Forrest from everything like this bust in the capitol leave the bus alone is Nathan Bedford Forrest he was in he was an important figure for good or bad or whatever you can think of but see what these folks do is they go around they take statues and things that they are the the Campbell was tell me yesterday I believe that they were there trying to take down a statue of Winston Churchill in London for running come on dude he defeated the **** for crying out loud and they want to take it because he wasn't perfect and I'm sure it has to do with the Indians or something because he wasn't big on the Indians being your India being free and he wanted them to stay a a colony of the of Great Britain of the U. K. and so I mean so we wouldn't a perfect person who is and that's what I see about countries two countries you look at the United States and you say well you know guys that sucks because when slavery and all this stuff we also save the world from the **** we've done all sorts of wonderful things the country on the whole we're pretty good as a country and certainly better than most countries out there and I see pretty good I'm being facetious we're excellent we I mean every you you wave the good the bad and we're far out weigh on the good far away on the good of the good we've done for the entire world we continue to do for the entire world have we made our mistakes absolutely but there are people who want to destroy the the United States because it's not perfect but look at these folks who want to do it listen to their miles listen the potty mouth look at the way they lead their lives they're angry they're they're out of control is this what we want to replace America with its anti for people I mean they they're nuts so when we look at the historical figures like Nathan Bedford Forrest no I that there's no sense in having the day after him I don't think so I would have I would have no problem with doing away with Nathan Bedford Forrest day by the way when they start it wasn't that long ago I mean it's not like we've been doing it since eighteen sixty year eight things whatever I think it's a fairly recent thing the bill is sponsored by reason of London Lamar Democrat from Memphis would stop designating July thirteenth is Nathan Bedford Forrest day it passed in the house naming designating the and private acts committed the naming designating a private activity so it's not really a holiday it's just the it's the it's it's a commemorative day because I don't ever recall getting Nathan Bedford Forrest day off I don't think we get that the cumulus so and I represent will Maher said upon the bill's passing what is what is means to Tennessee I guess what this means to Tennessee is that we're going to continue to move forward we're going to continue to make Tennessee a welcoming state for everybody there were going to recognize that we don't have a perfect pass but we can get it right so early on the same day the same committee members voted to reject a resolution to remove the bus the force from the state capitol building some Republican state lawmakers have opposed both the removal of Forrest's bust from the state capitol in the holiday yeah I I get the bus thing I don't get the holiday I mean we don't need to have a day named after they make them but for far as we just don't he's not I mean you know I mean we have some good and some bad I just don't think he's that important figure to to the state of Tennessee to be quite honest with you now I'm going to hear from you I'm sure six one five seven three seven nine nine eight six will be back right after this.

"From the past and bring the stuff you missed in history class the U. S. is the world's second greatest consumer of vodka after Russia that may or may not surprise you I found it a little surprising of I couldn't really get a serious place in drinking stateside though until after prohibition prior to that there was just a smattering of mediocre vodka options available and it really didn't catch on in any sort of significant way in the nineteen thirties a Russian immigrant named Rudolph could if you had purchased the rights to use the smeared off name started selling better vodka in the United States that have been available previously as Connecticut distilleries struggled until the end of that decade when it was purchased on behalf of Cubans liquor company by John G. Martin Gibbons was absorbed by a larger company but Martin had wisely made sure that he retains the rights to the smeared off name yeah he had been an executive with you lives and she had had written Adams smartly where he got some right of redistribution but Martin didn't figure out a way to capitalize on his rights to the Smirnoff name until nineteen forty one when he and his friend and tavern owner came up with the combination of ginger beer and vodka with lemon or lime juice in a copper mug this has its own mythology around it where it happened in LA which is where his friends tavern was verses it happened in New York and it only took off in a way and that one of them had too much ginger beer and one of them had too much vodka and it was our levels to Reese's Cup situation and we don't really know but he they he is completely recognized he and his friend as originating the Moscow mule and once that drink was born it finally made drinkers in the United States embrace vodka at least until World War two after the war for a while vodka became sort of spirit non grata in the U. S. as the Cold War began and all things associated with the Soviet Union were viewed through that lens it didn't go away completely and Martin was still concocting other cocktails with vodka but it really it kind of had a big spike in in popularity and then a big drop off by his reputation perked up once Sean Connery ordered a vodka martini and Dr narrow in nineteen sixty two but then it really got a boost when president Richard Nixon after visiting the Soviet Union approved business between Pepsi Cola and the USSR in exchange for assistance in setting up a Pepsi factory in the Soviet Union the US business was paid in stylish Nile vodka which made the soda giant the Stoli distributor in the US with the backing of a massive coal a brand of vodka became the most popular spirit in the U. S. in nineteen seventy five vodka remains one of the most popular liquors in the United States and smeared off is the most popular brands yeah if you look at like year to year top ten spirits in the U. S. vodka is almost always in the top two and usually it is Smirnoff it it shifts a little bit but I think whiskey kind of stays at the top has for the last several years anyway but that's all fun and games but we have to acknowledge that vodka has a a pretty dark side to its history as well there have certainly been plenty of issues that stem from over indulgence in an addiction to alcohol in the world's on going story for example in the late nineteenth century Russia was in the middle of a real crisis of alcoholism it was so bad that it threatens the labor pool and caused outcry from activist groups and churches the medical professionals eventually czar Alexander the third couldn't ignore the problem any longer and limited the production of vodka put regulations in place to mandate quality and formed a temperance society that's how did the idea of drinking in moderation despite the fact that the name of the society what was the guardianship of public sobriety might suggest that it would be against the bank altogether three clear though Alexander the third himself was a drinker yeah he was definitely responding to outside pressures he was not like Hey we should cut back on drinking in the country because he loved to drink the state also started a program to boost non alcoholic entertainment as a means to curtail drinking free theater and concerts as well as adult education offerings and other leisure incentives were offered but none of this really worked at all regulations did not stop illicit liquor sales in the production of inferior product is this problem with alcoholism persisted into the research Japanese war and actually cost Russia battles backing them into a corner and putting them in a really weak position for brokering a treaty additionally the sars decision to ban alcohol in an effort to help the troops stay on task for that conflict meant that a huge source of tax revenue was lost in the process and all of that was before the twentieth century efforts to sober up the country that we mentioned earlier in twenty fourteen a study titled alcohol in words how do he was conducted at the university of Toronto it featured some really grim data the authors of the paper you're gonna ram and Kevin the shield outlined the fact that more than two hundred different diseases are linked to alcohol but their research focuses on cancer liver cirrhosis and injury and their research indicated that in twenty ten to four point one percent of all deaths globally from those diseases were attributable to alcohol consumption that same year alcohol consumption resulted in an average percentage of years lost of four point three percent those numbers increased as compared to similar data from nineteen ninety this is not in your outline but I was reading a thing recently that was a hypothesis that one of the reasons that breast cancer rates are lower in Utah is because of Utah's more stringent alcohol laws I I cannot speak to that because I have not read it yeah I mean I it's one of those things right we definitely have to kind of acknowledge that consuming alcohol comes with inherent danger there was a recent study I didn't put it in my notes either so I'm quoting it kind of out of the air the basically I think it was from twenty sixteen or twenty seventeen that was like really the safest way to consume alcohol is to not consume alcohol because even though there are and it's outlined in the ram paper there are some specific health issues that alcohol in moderation can actually help but for the most part like the dangers are far worse than any of them so just things to consider we're not telling people to go out drink a ton of arca the call be grown ups we and we don't want to minimize also or downplayed the issue of over indulgence or addiction but that would be a really down place to end this episode so instead I thought it might be fun to close with a few anecdotes and facts about vodka that are just sort of fascinating on their own we mentioned earlier that by daca was probably originally contracted for medicinal use but there are still plenty of sort of old wives remedies that make use of it alcohol infused with St John's wort and sage is believed to have curative powers as a liniment vodka served with black pepper is an old Russian cold remedy and vodka fumes from infused fabrics are believed by some to cure everything from muscle aches to your problems it's also used as an astringent cleanser to clean out pores and of the disinfectant for wounds it can be used for cleaning services as well as humans as a Polish for mirrors chrome tile and the like yeah it definitely will kill all your stuff my favorite use for vodka which I didn't put in here but it is here's the trick I give to you that I learned from working in costume shops forever you get cheap cheap vodka and you put it in a spritzer bottle if you can't make it to a dry cleaner that will freshen up your clothes kill any bacteria that are causing odor and help you get through to your next thing yeah this is why I have in my bathroom under the sink there are two spray bottles both clearly marked so I don't confuse them one contains peroxide the other contains vodka yeah idea at one point I was helping out as like a a really low level mouse in a costume shop that was serving a ballet company and their their costume director was always walking around with a bottle of vodka and spurting things to make sure that they did not smell bad especially if you're doing like a matinee performance in evening and there was no way to really do serious cleaning between the two in terms of time especially when you're trying to print things for a full court ballet a little Marcus Brits will help her things up and make it not smell bad there's also another little household in which is that adding vodka and sugar to water at the base of Christmas trees or two vases of flowers is thought to prolong the life of the plants I have never tried that one me neither just don't make your don't make your Christmas tree water accidentally flammable in eighteen sixty years with men off distillery added anise and egg whites to combine to provide get to make it more delicious I would like to disagree about whether that would be more delicious is it the licorice that's the way you dress or the egg white in a lot of K. electric I love licorice so this sounds to life you can have it all online if you've never have like egg white foam in an alcoholic drink and that may sound weird to you I. courage you if you are of legal drinking age to try it out because it's quite interesting there's a there's some good tiki drinks the future as well R. this is another one that I love in twenty eleven the Bolshoi theatre in Moscow which was originally built in seventeen seventy six which a major spruce up and renovation it actually started far before twenty eleven but that's when it's finished after it had been neglected for several decades but when it came to the finishing touches performed by guilders they turned to a medieval recipe it turns out to make perfect gold gilt egg whites have to be first kept in a warm room for forty days and then those egg whites are mixed with the clay and then the magic ingredient vodka is added to that mixture which is then used to apply gold leaf and according to Mikhail Siddaramaiah who works for the company that handled this refurbishment project quote this method keeps goal from being over used and helps retain its luster for fifty to seventy years so in essence the same kind of thing that makes baked bread look shiny and delicious will also make your gold gleaming glee realized due to an uptick in specific diets there are now about his marketed that fits within various eating restrictions so any domestically made it non flavored grain or potato based vodka in the US is considered kosher some brands made outside the US she used to think Sir certification from the orthodox union including storage Naina and crystal head and somebody who's include messaging on the label about their gluten free status yeah if you have dietary restrictions there is probably a company out there making vodka that wants to make sure you know you can drink whatever it is they're making and because I love talking about art we're going to end with innovative Norwegian artist Bjarne sound and one son was visiting Antarctica and was inspired to paint using the water colors that he had brought with him he ran into a little bit of a problem which is that his pants were freezing before he could get anything done and his Russian guide suggested vodka and he found success when he makes that with his pigments and he called the resulting technique vodka color right I love a little innovation I feel like vodka is sort of one of those universal solvent substance because it does get you still medicinally still for cleaning and a stringent needs and also in art and also to make things beautiful and gilt edged with gold fabulous again don't over indulge please be careful with your market consumption or don't drink at all if that is the choice that you would rather make yeah totally fine with it whatever works for you it is best for your health I feel a little like Steve rule but when a backup offer that I have a postcard this week but here's the problem I'm going to read it and I don't know who it's from it appears that you did not sign it I think they just for god because it's a lovely little note but if you're the person that sent this to us thank you and I'm sorry we can't say your name on the air because I don't see it anywhere on the card although they did put a little additional thing this is thank you for being awesome up in the corner but not their name but they wrote Hey ladies I visited San Francisco in December I just have to go to the trolley car museum which Tracy talked about in her San Francisco trolley car episode that she wrote I talked about it as well but she did the research on that one my boyfriend was hesitant to go but he literally didn't stop talking about it afterwards we also visited quite tower and learned about lily so I thought I'd share and the the postcard is a picture of Lillie Hitchcock Coit and the caption on the back of the postcards a seven year old lily Hitchcock's life was saved by volunteers of Knickerbocker engine five ever after lily was their patron an honorary member of the company lilies but quest for San Francisco's beautification built quite tower so that's a cool little combo of visiting place we've talked about on the show and giving us a little mini education via postcard so thank you thank you thank you to whatever wonderful person sent this if you'd like to write to us you can do so in history podcast at howstuffworks dot com you can also find us everywhere on social media as missed in history and you can go to distant history dot com to see all of the

"Greatest consumer of vodka after Russia that may or may not surprise you I found it a little surprising I couldn't really get a serious place in drinking stateside though until after prohibition prior to that there was just a smattering of mediocre vodka options available and it really didn't catch on in any sort of significant way in the nineteen thirties a Russian immigrant named Rudolph could it too had purchased the rights to use the smeared off name started selling better vodka in the United States that had been available previously as Connecticut distilleries struggled until the end of that decade when it was purchased on behalf of Cubans liquor company by John G. Martin Gibbons was absorbed by a larger company but Martin had wisely made sure that he retains the rights to the Smirnoff name yeah he had been an executive with humans and he had had print let him smartly where he got some rights for distribution but Martin didn't figure out a way to capitalize on his rights to the Smirnoff name until nineteen forty one when he and his friend and tavern owner came up with the combination of ginger beer and vodka with lemon or lime juice in a copper mug this has its own mythology around it where it happened in LA which is where his friends tavern was worse as it happened in New York and it only took off in a way and that one of them had too much ginger beer and one of them had too much vodka and it was our levels to Reese's Cup situation and we don't really know but he they he is completely recognized he and his friend as originating the Moscow mule and once that drink was born it finally made drinkers in the United States embrace vodka at least until World War two after the war for a while vodka became sort of spirit non grata in the U. S. as the Cold War began and all things associated with the Soviet Union were viewed through that lens it didn't go away completely and Martin was still concocting other cocktails with vodka but it really it kind of had a big spike in in popularity and then a big drop off by his reputation perked up points Sean Connery ordered a vodka martini and Dr narrow in nineteen sixty two but then it really got a boost when president Richard Nixon after visiting the Soviet Union approved business between Pepsi Cola and the USSR in exchange for assistance in setting up a Pepsi factory in the Soviet Union the US business was paid in stylish Nile vodka which made the soda giant the Stoli distributor in the US with the backing of a massive coal a brand of vodka became the most popular spirit in the U. S. in nineteen seventy five vodka remains one of the most popular liquors in the United States and smeared off is the most popular brands yeah if you look at like year to year top ten spirits in the U. S. vodka is almost always in the top two and usually it is Smirnoff it it shifts a little bit but I think whiskey kind of stays at the top there has for the last several years anyway but that's all fun and games but we have to acknowledge that vodka has a a pretty dark side to its history as well there have certainly been plenty of issues that stem from over indulgence in an addiction to alcohol in the world's on going story for example in the late nineteenth century Russia was in the middle of a real crisis of alcoholism it was so bad that it threatens the labor pool and caused outcry from activist groups and churches the medical professionals eventually czar Alexander the third couldn't ignore the problem any longer and limited the production of vodka put regulations in place to mandate quality and formed a temperance society that's how did the idea of drinking in moderation despite the fact that the name of the society what was the guardianship of public sobriety might suggest that it would be against the drink altogether three clear though Alexander the third himself was a drinker yeah he was definitely responding to outside pressures he was not like Hey we should cut back on drinking in the country because he loves to drink of the state also started a program to boost non alcoholic entertainment as a means to curtail drinking free theater and concerts as well as adult education offerings and other leisure incentives were offered but none of this really worked at all regulations did not stop illicit liquor sales in the production of inferior products is this problem with alcoholism persisted into the research Japanese war and actually cost Russia battles backing them into a corner and putting them in a really weak position for brokering a treaty additionally the sars decision to ban alcohol in an effort to help the troops stay on task for that conflict meant that a huge source of tax revenue was lost in the process and all of that was before the twentieth century efforts to sober up the country that we mentioned earlier in twenty fourteen a study titled alcohol and mortality he was conducted at the university of Toronto and it featured some really grim data the authors of the paper you're gonna ram and Kevin the shield outlined the fact that more than two hundred different diseases are linked to alcohol but their research focuses on cancer liver cirrhosis and injury and their research indicated that in twenty ten to four point one percent of all deaths globally from those diseases were attributable to alcohol consumption that same year alcohol consumption resulted in an average percentage of years lost four point three percent those numbers increased as compared to similar data from nineteen ninety this is not in your outline but I was reading a thing recently that was a hypothesis that one of the reasons that breast cancer rates are lower in Utah is because of Utah's more stringent alcohol laws I I cannot speak to that because I have not read it yeah I mean I it's one of those things right we definitely have to kind of acknowledge that consuming alcohol comes with inherent danger there was a recent study I didn't put it in my notes either so I'm quoting it kind of out of the air of the basically I think it was from twenty sixteen or twenty seventeen that was like really the safest way to consume alcohol is to not consume alcohol because even though there are and it's outlined in the ram paper there are some specific health issues that alcohol in moderation can actually help but for the most part like the dangers are far worse than any of them so just things to consider we're not telling people to go out drink a ton of arca the combi grown ups we and we don't want to minimize also or downplayed the issue of over indulgence or addiction but that would be a really down place to end this episode so instead I thought it might be fun to close with a few anecdotes and facts about vodka that are just sort of fascinating on their own we mentioned earlier that by aka was probably originally contracted for medicinal use but there are still plenty of sort of old wives remedies that make use of it alcohol infused with St John's wort and sage is believed to have had curative powers as a liniment vodka served with black pepper is an old Russian cold remedy and vodka fumes from infused fabrics are believed by some to cure everything from muscle aches to your problems it's also used as an astringent cleanser to clean out pores and as a disinfectant for wounds it can be used for cleaning services as well as humans as a Polish for mirrors chrome tile and the like yeah it definitely will kill all your stuff my favorite use for vodka which I didn't put in here but it is here's the trick I give to you that I learned from working in costume shops for ever you get cheap cheap vodka and you put it in a sports or bottle if you can't make it to a dry cleaner about we'll freshen up your clothes kill any bacteria that are causing odor and help you get through to your next thing yeah this is why I have in my bathroom under the sink there are two spray bottles both clearly marked so I don't confuse them one contains peroxide the other contains vodka yeah idea at one point I was helping out as like a a really low level mouse in a costume shop that was serving a ballet company and their their costume director was always walking around with a bottle of Arkansas printing things to make sure that they did not smell bad especially if you're doing like a matinee performance in evening and there was no way to really do you serious cleaning between the two in terms of time especially when you're trying to print things for a full court ballet a little vodka sprints will help her things up and make it not smell bad there's also another little household in which is that adding vodka and sugar to water at the base of Christmas trees or two vases of flowers is thought to prolong the life of the plants I have never tried that one me neither just don't make your don't make your Christmas tree water accidentally flammable in eighteen sixty years with men off distillery added anise and egg whites to combine the vodka to make it more delicious I would like to disagree about whether that would be more delicious is it the licorice the waitress or the egg white in a lot of communally crash I love licorice so this sounds to life you can have it all mine if you've never have like egg white foam in an alcoholic drink and that may sound weird to you I. courage you if you are of legal drinking age to try it out because it's quite interesting there's a there's some good tiki drinks the future as well R. this is another one that I love in twenty eleven the Bolshoi theatre in Moscow which was originally built in seventeen seventy six went through a major spruce up and renovation it actually started far before twenty eleven but that's when it's finished after it had been neglected for several decades but when it came to the finishing touches performed by guilders they turned to a medieval recipe it turns out to make perfect gold gilt egg whites have to be first kept in a warm room for forty days and then those egg whites are mixed with the clay and then the magic ingredient vodka is added to that mixture which is then used to apply gold leaf and according to Mikhail Siddaramaiah who works for the company that handled this refurbishment project quote this method keeps goal from being over used and helps retain its luster for fifty to seventy years so in essence the same kind of thing that makes baked bread look shiny and delicious will also make your gold gleaming glee relax due to an uptick in specific diets there are now by because marketed that fits within various eating restrictions so any domestically made of non flavored grain or potato based vodka in the US is considered kosher some brands made outside the US she used to think your certification from the orthodox union including storage dial and crystal head and somebody gives include messaging on the label about their gluten free status yeah if you have dietary restrictions there is probably a company out there making vodka that wants to make sure you know you can drink whatever it is they're making and because I love talking about art we're going to end with innovative Norwegian artist Bjarne sound and one son was visiting Antarctica and was inspired to paint using the water colors that he had brought with him he ran into a little bit of a problem which is that his pants were freezing before he can get anything done and his Russian guide suggested vodka and he found success when he makes about with his pigments and he called the resulting technique vodka colored right I love a little innovation I feel like vodka is sort of one of those universal solvent substance because it does get you still medicinally still for cleaning and a stringent needs and also in art and also to make things beautiful and gilt edged with gold fabulous again don't over indulge please are full with your market consumption or don't drink at all if that is the choice that you would rather make yeah totally fine with it whatever works for you it is best for your health I feel a little like Steve rule but when I'm back up off of that I have a postcard this week but here's the problem I'm gonna read it but I don't know who it's from it appears that you did not sign it I think they just for god because it's a lovely little note but if you're the person that sent this to us thank you and I'm sorry we can't say your name on the air because I don't see it anywhere on the card although they did put a little additional thing this is thank you for being awesome up in the corner but not their name but they wrote Hey ladies I visited San Francisco in December I just had to go to the trolley car museum which Tracy talked about in her San Francisco trolley car episode that she wrote I talked about it as well but she did the research on that one my boyfriend was hesitant to go but he literally didn't stop talking about it afterwards we also visited quite tower and learned about lily so I thought I'd share and the the postcard is a picture of Lillie Hitchcock Coit and the caption on the back of the Coast Guard says seven year old lily Hitchcock's life was saved by volunteers of Knickerbocker engine five ever after lily was their patron an honorary member of the company Lilis bequest for San Francisco's beautification built quite tower so that's a cool little

"Okay you've got a problem okay get that kid up hand them a shovel and send them outside let him earn his his allowance if they still do that okay allow you know allow the kids to learn how to work had to remain a member of society you know when you hit the work force there's no summer vacations Christmas vacations there's no Easter vacations Gee I wonder sleep in late on the weekend your boss just called in sick told you that you're going to be in six hundred tomorrow because we have a problem you're there or you don't get advanced so one of the little lessons that I like to teach people to come into my office as interns non medical interns in the sense that you see on television walking around with a stethoscope or in a white coat but you know kids that want to learn how to how to work the first thing they teach where the three eighths of success now if I start sounding like a motivational speaker somebody throw a Mike it hit me hard you know because if you're not motivated you're not to find a speaker that's going to motivate you not confined to speakers can make anybody motivated you can't do it okay so what it what are the three Hayes you might ask okay the first one is availability this is true of doctors this is true of lawyers this true of dentists this is true of every profession the three days begins with availability if you're not there show up okay if you're not there you are going to fail it doesn't matter how good you are doesn't matter how kind you are doesn't matter how good looking your were that the case I would have succeeded okay it doesn't matter of availability the second day is affability he got a crabby kids are going to fail they're going to fail in school they're gonna fail in life the colonel failing marriage that can fail period because if you if you got a crummy attitude people don't want to be around you I don't care how good you are and then the third eight is ability this is not enough to be that while you're on the smartest kid in class I'm I'm the fastest in the class I'm this I'm that it doesn't make any difference if you think back to high school which for most people is the goal of their career most people have hit their pinnacle when they were in high school is not said he lived to be eighty years old and hit your peak when you're seventeen or eighteen sixty years following that your you know your well you know I remember when I was on the football team and I won that that that I catch got caught this hurt kick that nobody cares nobody's alive remember anyway and if they did they eat our popcorn and went home it didn't matter so you have to you have to look at the longer term so availability affability ability this is what it's gonna take to succeed in and it takes hard work it takes discipline so looking at kids waking up tomorrow morning and going to you don't know what I'm gonna do is a failure on the parents part yeah so if you're going to do anything learn from this for next year learn for this for the next vacation learn for this for the next opportunity for you to fail as a parent by not allowing your kids to have something called discipline it's not a good thing you know it and in many ways I felt this way as a parent well you know just the way it works we were none of us are perfect you don't learn from your mistakes you're destined to continue to to to continue on with them so when and where do you how do you deal with it let's let's go to get to the immediate need yeah okay what we do right now first thing you want to do is look at the clock okay right now it's it's a little bit after three o'clock in the afternoon so the kids are going to be up at six o'clock tomorrow morning five thirty in some cases right figure out what it's going to take to get eight hours were to sleep which means the kids are gonna have to be asleep by ten o'clock tonight exactly all right so what does it take to do this I mean to get them ready at nine start the fight right then okay start the fight early get it over with and move on get the phone into the kitchen that's far enough away from most mammals bedroom to make a difference make sure the televisions are off the blinds are drawn black out curtains or better okay and get the alarm set multiple alarms get your regular alarm clock but also get whatever type of device you might have whether it's a like so whether it's here who the heck knows doesn't really matter have a secondary alarm lot of people can sleep through it looting you okay now how do you induce sleep the team okay well that a little bit until eleven or twelve o'clock one o'clock they wanted this may one of that we'll just really matter what they want okay because they're not smart enough right now to know what what's good for the B. twenty twenty five before they get the kid mental capability will be thirty before they have the experience to know that they were wrong when they had ended up okay so you can induce sleep in these kids by using several things one of which is L. theanine that's not too late to get to the drug store that whatever store and see if you can get the stuff okay L. theanine dosage two hundred milligrams at bedtime and gather GABA not kept pending but Gabba seven hundred fifty milligrams the one or two at that time that will knock most of the brats out it will knock them down okay a little dent induces sleep at them going melatonin can cause nightmares you don't really want to do that too much to kids not without none was a total win and the last piece that may help with something called lactoferrin containing colostrum yeah and you take two hundred dollars million of these two hundred and fifty milligram capsules you take two of them to as many as four and it will induce sleep and the trick right now is to get the kids back into a normal sleep cycle that's going to take at least a week maybe two and don't let the weekends full year okay because the older set you back they'll continue to say your that was gonna be my question everyone is going to want to sleep till one o'clock on Saturday as the biggest mistake and that's one of the things that get people into trouble so get your kids interested in either doing their their homework at six o'clock Saturday bribes and do my job my parents to bribe yeah you know don't well if you go and get this done by eleven o'clock in the morning you know we'll go out to to to dinner world gold I'll take you out bowling or whatever the heck the kid wants to do okay and find a suitable way to reward good behavior and then things will start to to tough to follow kids are a lot like rats according to scan area in psychology scat you know this is just the way these things go so reward the kids with with for their good behavior don't a reward bad behavior okay and let it go from there whether you want to take could golfing at six o'clock in the morning get a tee time early get the tennis runs out before it gets too hot out there have the kids mow the lawn we're we're gonna paid somebody mow your lawn twenty five thirty forty Bucks yeah have you could do it okay but it's only gonna happen at six o'clock in the morning on Saturday because you don't want to do we would you know we wanna wake the neighbors up we're going you're going to the retirement community will be different no real rhyme that don't take assortment of price our next door neighbor so that would be my advice to this individual is to get the kids back into normal sleep cycle and that includes you as a parent if you lead by example okay lead by example for gonna lead lead you cut the grass in the villages six AM they're gonna string you up in the town ill there you know running on a rail your super glue for the top your head now three big things we need
