"They've missed out on that as juniors, and now it's seniors. It was like they didn't know who to turn to necessarily. And so Ellen Xavi and you've got a lot of knowledge about how athletic recruitment works at the collegiate level. So what have you seen? What's the biggest change that you've seen when it comes to Athletic recruitment Well, I would play off the word relationships, relationships between the coaches, the coaches and the perspective athletes, the coaches and the seniors that may come back and extra year, which has been permitted under nce rules and just the impact on the budgets alone. I mean, when you look at the financial side of, you know, athletic recruiting. The coaches don't know what they're recruiting budget even looks like so it's really about digital recruiting. Digital profiling did you do recruiting when we talk about what kind of zoom calls What kind of campus meetings where you're in one car and the coaches in the another car communicating to you explaining to you what the campus has to offer. How you're building your digital profile. As an athlete. You're really looking at cleaning up your profile online because now that carries greater weight. And then you've got high school coaches or club coaches that air carrying greater weight in that relationship description. So college coaches air calling their high school coaches to say what kind of person is this? Can they have a good temperament and fit into what we have on the on the field or in the court? Well, what about also the fact that some of these seasons were canceled? I mean, a false sports and a lot of states. Was canceled. They kids were allowed to maybe drill. Maybe, but a lot of you know, it's a lot of competition was just canceled. So what are you seeing? Are you seeing kids from one part of the country? Maybe. All right, our our people moving to other states or staying with relatives in other states where sports is in play, or what do you see? I'm not saying that. But I do see where the junior colleges and the local colleges that the athlete already has a relationship with and they've already met the coaches that really plays a role, so you might see more localization of recruiting. So it will have a ripple effect. I believe for the next 5 to 6 years on the quality and the right fit, and you may see more transfers than you've ever seen because the initial fit was due to the pandemic circumstances and now the transfer rules may change. To allow transfers to happen without having to sit out a year. So it's only record. What about you? What do you What do you you know, Ellen had an interesting point here. She was saying she thinks there's going to be a ripple effect of this five and six years down the line when it comes to Athletic recruitment. Do you have Ah, concern about the long term ramifications of this I really do. I have a long term concern for the students who are being impacted as well as our our society. We're only down 2% in applicants. Individual applicants now, and the national Student Clearing House just recently released data that low income high school graduates as first year students in college or down 29%, which has Just is devastating for those students in terms off what they will be able to do in their futures and us having an educated workforce, particularly the pandemic has shined a light on the fact that those within education have been able to keep their jobs at a higher rate. On be able to work from home and you know, at a higher rate than others. And so that's my my long term concern. Eyes the impact that this is having on individual students that will ultimately impact our society. Given all the uncertainty that remains, what's one piece of advice that each of you can offer for students and parents. Who are in the process. Who who you would want to be in the process. Jenny, do you wanna start 85% of common APP College and university members are now test optional or test free. That compares to more than 50% last year who required testing so knowing that there truly test optional and you don't have to worry if you haven't been able to get a standardized test, and the college is definitely want to hear from you don't be intimidated by that military. The biggest thing that I always like to share the counselors for families to use. The resource is within schools and that in this virtual world, you can still reach out to individuals for help in having conversations regarding your plans. What that looks like what your options are etcetera, and I think that's something we're losing without thean person component. And Ellen's Avian.

and a half they really took it on the chin in nineteen forty five and now we're back to LA acts like to run home like just knocking on the doors on suburban place you know Kylie Jenner hi for sixty years and then they'll go and get some but al Pacino's having at this critical moment easier to be enjoying himself he does enjoy himself and sources he seemed to be enjoying himself I mean though that the funny thing about this is they weren't they probably were gonna win anyway but it is an upset that that you did parasite one it won best international but then won Best Picture and I don't I don't know that that deserves that well I think that's kind of something weird like the don't Hollywood self flagellation because there's there the other films were better in that category right yeah I gave it three stars when it came out we talked about and I you know and I get its appeal they're not gonna do an American version of it because people don't like to read the movies I didn't think it was as great and revolutionaries a lot of critics did you know it listens an interesting film about class warfare as a little bit of almost get out to it you know which but I can get out was a superior film thank you reminded me a little bit more of from dusk till dawn were George Clooney and Quentin Tarantino were bank robbers all of a sudden found themselves in a vampire movie like there's a sale and that's not what happened here from eleven to the but there's a there's a let's see there's a huge tonal shift in the yeah it's really kind of a dark comedy but I thought it just kind of one of the rails I wasn't there some people think the last thirty minutes were just brilliant cinnamon unlike or now there's Tom should judge a rabbit which I think is it also superior filming and it was one of my favorite of last year that is a total shift yeah but you get yourself is going on you see they set you up for it they let you know there's never going to set you up for it they actually give you visual clues by the time we get to it so that it it it touches you on every single level and this is this this is a moment of a lot of Hollywood which I just do not get in Hollywood guilt chosen and he is the the how you become the winner of Best Picture in terms of how the voting happens in it's not like the normal funny if you would like an explanation Richard Roeper in our podcast the best movies the race for the gold the Oscar edition in the best movies that episode six which is the fight there's only six episodes per season for us that that file up as it were you talk about the best picture nominees you explain the whole thing it's a mathematical nightmare how to get to this because it's not not it's it's I think is a hall of fame voting it's Iowa caucus like yeah with the app not working that makes a big zeros and we did talk about how there could be an upset there I agree if you listened should have one definitely for international language film although painting glory which is the Antonio Banderas film that he was nominated for Best Actor for another really great foreign films via the entry from Spain this year so did it feel I felt a little bit like the academy felt so guilty about the lack of diversity in a lot of other categories they went overboard that was fun I mean Bungie John who is hilarious and great and cool and had a great time he actually he actually apologized early in grave the Oscars on site now these to take the Oscar away from you and send it like two months later so the engrave it right now which is cool but he apologized to the engraver because you know how the grocery stores as like ten items or less real to go Oscars is usually two items if for also we held up the line well they had them in the most amount of answers right he individually because he wrote the screenplay soy wins for that international film he won for that than Best Director and best film and all those cases he actually works is a producer and co writer as well as director so he actually physically okay last great one for screen play yeah from it was original screenplay right yes okay because judge arrival was adapted from a non right exactly and and it toggle we TT who is the guy who is the guy behind judge rabbit yes who plays Hitler correct yeah because you can find anybody else to do it and he just steals the show yeah is is a guy who you know like the that's he's certainly get it is give me one great twenty first century artist saving film artists yeah gonna be she's got that whole thing going and I'm sure that this one in June all right Peng punch one how anyway don't go together he he he's got obviously clearly gonna have an amazing career as well yeah these are the couple films of people to look up that are amazing so it's I mean you're saying that this was this like the coming out of the new with the new wave the new great art yes you don't quite entertaining out early on these games you know right and people like that yes and turned him becomes like one of the old you know he is like caught in the old guard he's not quite Scorsese buddies you know around for awhile so it is is a last night was was a lot of fun in that respect but how the how right one for screenplay and in Korea right I mean that that is the screen writers who home for that right I don't have to read the screen everybody votes in the gift that D. in in in the files that they not screenwriters nominate screenwriters but then the whole time academy can vote for script so I think a lot of cases a lot of CAD members watched parasite in the last few weeks before voting closed and they probably just enjoyed in this home screen rooms they might have had they might have had that same woman that was interpreting for everybody at their homes to interpret it she had the most screen time last night she is wonderful she was great use of the old ones that are going to these issues that you're going to cheat look this is serious she wants to direct a movie making fun of the whole word circuit about about an interpreter I didn't know you could see you're doing a satire based on that which could be fun the whole thing good site I felt and it you know what it was it was weird it was like now I'm gonna get in trouble for saying this from this anyway it was like I was hungry fifteen minutes later after the whole thing was done I just I was I I really did not I I I get a sense of loss because I there nine nominees and seven of them were better than Paris and that's the thing that really I didn't really bother me and I think I don't think I'm I'm crazy I'm just as just a fan you're the critic but I mean you stop me they once one time Hollywood fantastic the Irishman fantastic yeah if the judge rabbit nineteen seventeen for one or I mean I put in the same category like is marriage for I didn't love it but you know I like that that was nominated here's what I would say about the Oscars look you know it's it's fun it's fun to kind of make fun of and enjoy the jokes after their my favorite time of the movie you're one of my favorite times is right now the Monday after the Oscars because now with this we wrap a bow on this and we don't have to talk about these movies again ever and we could look forward to what's coming up this Friday in the following Friday and every weekend to come that's very true I feel like Mandalorian by the way I would like to point to talk at Waititi the guy from is directed the finality of that yeah then another one of the episodes during it and he's the voice of one of the droids yeah this guy is it yeah unbelievably great records for Radner rock as well right the best of the formal without question or was your very rock and roll and get ahead a little Tarantino esque feel to it yes and people if you have not seen judge your rabbit see judge a rabbit that is it that's coming out now finally that's a guess right now it's a week away from being rentable it is really it's really something all right we will return and we're gonna talk to these foosball guys that day you talk about this you love this time merry foos baller yes yes and the the guys who were did the documentary are here and we're gonna talk about what that's all about because I had no idea that we could do a document about food find out exactly why it's

"Conversation whatever story changes on Chicago's very own some twenty WGN welcome to after hours with me recalled in one of these days are going to change the name of the show to Roger banish in your life and times because there's not there's not a month that goes by where someone it doesn't come in here and Roger will come in and say all my god we used to drive race cars together we used to be in radio together I am very fortunate to have been here former colleague of Rogers at Evanston township high school mark Larson who I have known I think longer than Roger vanish I work with his dad and I've known mark for a good long while his new book is a remarkable remarkable accomplishment is called ensemble and Errol history of Chicago feeder it is seven hundred some pages more than three hundred interviews gathered to gather in an unbelievable compelling way that tells you whether you're new to Chicago theatre or you've been hanging around since the early days of second city and playwrights theater it tells you stuff you didn't know mark congratulations this is I I know you've been working on it for a long time four years five years four and a half years like a little you little boy I'm far now you write in in their wonderful process the Chicago theatre movement and I are both the same age if you markets inception as I do in this book with the founding of playwrights theater club in nineteen fifty three a number of of starting point you could have selected why did you select playwrights theater and tell people what it is rates theater club was a was a group that was collected that was gathered by Paul sills when he was in college at the university of Chicago and he gathered together people who were interested in doing theater and they were a frustrated by the fact that there was no theater at a theater department and the university of Chicago so they did it on their own and they called the playwright's theatre club Chicago theater at the time was basically basically consisted of shows coming from Broadway going on the road and one of their stuff would be Chicago that's not a a a sort of a nurturing environment for theater focus no and it certainly wasn't that was that was basically it those touring companies and some some summer stock so sills started this group in I want to mention the names that were part of playing at the red light Fritz weaver ed Asner Mike Nichols Elaine may choice Piven burn Piven it was a remarkable Barbara Harris well who then in a ripple effect not only on local theater but on national on the national scene you have a some of them and there are ladies and John more than three hundred fascinating people interviewed in this book I found the as stuff just terrific how did you find him not not physically find them I mean obviously we know where he can be located but how did you find him you know somebody help me I can't tell you who okay but somebody who knew him said I can put you in touch and he responded very positively and I flew out to California and met with him at his home in Tarzana and they had several of subsequent conversations most of these people you interviewed face to face most of them that's what I tried to do yeah there's a fair amount that are by the phone just because you know just because some of them have become big stuff there the exit ours the you got into the oral history racket is what I'll call it not that long ago when you working on another book right yeah a book that failed actually it didn't and never came to completion I finished it but it wasn't but well that's the nature of content publishing yourself how did you you were inspired of because you are part of his books as well by studs Terkel of course the great and arguably the fun I get called the father of oral history but certainly the person that put oral histories on the map he certainly did how did he inspire you my cash knows it like I've done it but what was it like to sit with studs I mean you obviously learned things I learned but what what what vibe did you get all studs in his manner of doing the oral interview to Austin especially sadly taught in school sometimes as well right down ten questions and then asked to ten questions and record the answer and there it is that's not the turtles Larson matter that is it now you combine their names it was lovely I've I've been interviewed by students sometimes and they do they come in with their ten questions and the problem with that is they just go from question the question the question and what studs does is he very much engages you in a conversation it's very much commerce would like you to and I I would be interested in what you know what you got from him what I got from him we set he's on his couch on cast with terror and we either his hearing was so bad he leaned into me in his lean into me just be able to hear but it was three three and a half hours and what I found really interesting and what I didn't expect was how infrequently he asked questions directly did you experience that exactly yeah it was a conversation I mean the of give you that studs really really like to talk to nope that's Weston about and you go on and on and I'm I'm not mine but he also listen intently so that there were no into sort of like how are you and he'd go on from from there most people mark I have to think of it you know how did you present yourself how did you present yourself to them because a lot of these people are quote famous on quote and busy busy busy and don't and are asked to do sort of interviews about a variety of things all the time how did you presented and and what were some of the reactions one of the things that absolutely fascinated me about this was how open everybody was and how quickly were to say yes I did not anticipate that at all do you think that is I'm very in many in in for many of them it was the chance to relive their you yeah and and it very very exciting time in their lives that had to be part of it yes hi well I think in in retrospect it it once and they knew that's what they were going to be interviewed about after a little while to once I got a few people I was able to write to them and say you know I've talked Alan Arkin affected Asner and I'd love to talk to you so that they feel like they're in good company but I would present what the bridge project is about and you know I'm usually in an email you had to with each one of them given whatever specific time they were active had to do considerable considerable amount of research on you know play right cedar hello you were born in fifty three right cedar hill one in fifty was enjoyable for you I loved it yeah yeah and the more here's here's another thing about nineteen fifty three actually in relation research I was gonna started and then in the seventies when you start getting Steppenwolf right mainstream journals force of the remains that you yeah yeah I want to talk about remains put a bid on yeah but I've met choice pivot and of what I was gonna do was in interview her with her about her workshop that started in the seventies sure and in preparation for that I I read her book it was all this material to beginning about playwrights leader club and then I sat down with her and it totally changed the scope of the book how early on was that in this form a half years I'd say about six months to a year in there wow wow it was it was pretty early but it changed everything let me ask you did more than three hundred how many hours of energy eight you had everything professionally transcribed by any of that how many hours of interviews would you estimate that you had have you still have some more I've I still have the media I wish I do I have the old thousands thousands I have no clue you know one of the people that must've been terribly helpful you in here here's what to you right and he says as another point where one could have started this book it would be hard to overstate the influence a second city is hand knowing on Chicago theater but on American entertainment coast to coast and in nineteen ninety four retrospective commemorating the theaters thirty fifth anniversary Chicago Tribune critic Richard Christiansen reflected on its mark in the city all dates of recent Chicago history can be traced to the birth of second city do you agree with that I two if you consider nineteen fifty three in play right says the inception yeah in a way playwrights gave birth to seven city that is that was the question of the people in the yeah thank to yes what was it like to talk to Richard I saw him not long ago how did you I'm gonna see him next week actually gonna give him a book Richard was as influential would you agree with nurturing Chicago theatre in it's really early stages when to say yes it is it because you know him well it's hard to get that out of him no of course yeah yeah just relatively self effacing he's very self arresting very moderate critic he's right Xenia but he yeah I I brought him of a bunch of emails that people sent me because I said I'm gonna go see Richard what do you want me to tell him and one of the things they said was you know people keep telling me you really nurtured this thing along in the stuff that you were just saying yeah and he said well good for them he Richard which it is put into it right we have to take a short break but we'll continue on for another half hour with mark Larson talking about his remarkable book ensemble one oral history Chicago theatre if you've ever been to the

"Suburbanites as well. As city residents. The word is don't travel unless it's an absolute emergency road still are in bad shape. Many other major oaks and secondary roads are impassable Donna Joliet area, for example, US highway forty five and one or two and fifty four are still closed down by seven foot drifts that was actually a newsreel type clip that we had prepped for this week in history will play it again at four thirty because the the sixty seven blizzard that we started talking about before the break was actually this week. In nineteen sixty seven. So this is the fifty second anniversary. Is that? Right. Forty second fifty second anniversary. No. Yeah. Because otherwise they would have been life for so it's the fifty second anniversary of that blizzard. And that was the worst on record, man. I love hearing that old audio. It sounds it's so nosy so newsy, and I love the accents. Because he was he was full Chicago guy. They they hadn't worked the Chicago accent out of him. He was like, nah, this is really bad. Good. But this really this city, really stopped. When that blizzard hit twenty three inches is real. That's that's the thing. And it wasn't it. It was before the dopplers. It was before the really high tack weather predictions that we were able to we were like, we might get snow, and then they're like all although is bad. That's really really bad. We are getting calls and taps three one two nine eight one seventy two hundred and this is I'm not laughing at this story. But it's really it's funny ridden two to four texts in nineteen sixty seven's blizzard was the worst one for me. I lived through all of them. That's the one that stand out because my dad got snowed in at his girlfriend's which would knew about. And he said he was found out by my mother wasn't the intensity. The blizzard that made it was the worst storm. It was the worst storm in our household. That follows man. Yeah. That's no good. That's hard to explain that. Is knowing that work, Honey. Oh, work is close. Okay. Yeah. No. That's a bad day at the day. Not at the office. Twenty three inches was nineteen sixty seven I January first through third of nineteen ninety nine is second on our worst record. It was twenty one point six inches, president declared half, the state of Illinois disaster area. And this is this is in the still not as good as we are where we've got triple Doppler and all kinds of things, you know, nine hundred ninety nine it was still relatively sophisticated weather. Prediction, temperatures reached twenty below twenty below and seventy three people in the mid west died in the storm when it hit which hit Illinois, Wisconsin, Indiana, Michigan and Illinois airports were closed for several days and roads were impassable. And when you get stuck in your car like Roger badesch, oh that's coming up. That's a different story. I'll tell you Trump and back to sixty seven real fast. So I was a freshman at Evanston township high school, and it was so record setting that the high school which was about one hundred years old at the time. Had never been closed for snowstorm. Never no matter. What if you had to get the snow shoes out and shoots your way to the school? You have to get their teachers were required to be there. Everyday administrators every day. Everybody was wearing heels and skirts. Of course. Of course, they nineteen sixty seven that school closed that next day. So like the next day after the storm started the school for the first time in its history closed for one day only because not because the staff couldn't get there where the kids couldn't walk there. The city buses couldn't couldn't get through the roads. And a lot of the kids had to take the city buzz. That's back. When Evanston have their own bus company. Honestly, a lot of the school closures, and we can talk more about this at a different time. It so many school closures are driven by the bus system because they get because you know, you think about our SUV's slipping and sliding think about a buzz and beyond that is that the kids can't stay safely stand off the road the drifts and the piles from the snowplow, exactly. So that's that's really why this is driven the third on our list of five twenty one point two inches. Boy, just got eked out for that silver medal. Is this your storm the twenty eleven it was January thirty first to February second twenty eleven. Roger were you funny. You should have. All right now. I'm this is only the bronze medals has defend myself ever since then people have said, oh, we're we remember how horrible it was for you out there. But then in the same breath, they said put didn't people tell you to stay off lakeshore drive. Well, then tell that to the bus driver the bus driver. There were tons of bus drivers. And I was one of maybe a thousand cars on lakeshore drive two thousand cars on lakeshore drive. So we were kept in schools schools. I was teaching I taught Chicago vocational eighty seventh and Jeffrey, well, you made it most of the way we almost got seriously by inches missed it by that much. So we were not all the kids were gone by two in the afternoon. The kids were gone we have the state till two forty five to fifty so myself and another friend of mine other teacher who lived up near me. Ask for right home. I said fine. Let's go. We headed out. I was moving down lakeshore drive. I'm not kidding. I was in an out of the cars zip. I wasn't driving fast. But I was what we call. You. I was Indianapolis five hundred. Be the last time they teach your car. You're actually Roger was. I don't know what happened. So we we got through downtown pass rows of started getting a little crowded around Roosevelt. And I got up to remember that jack-knifed bus. I do at Belmont the exit and the northbound lanes at Belmont it Jack. And here's the affected had a lot of the cars wanted to get off at Belmont behind her. Just like they're going to cubs game. Exactly. Yeah. So now did the cars wanting to exit stay in the far right lane along the lakefront. No, no. We know better. Make like a snake? Saved across all four lanes. But there was chest enough space between that last car in the line and the barrier. Separating the north and southbound lanes,.

"Today was fifty years ago today. Snowstorms at go today. Snowstor- January twelfth nineteen sixty nine. Yeah. I was in high school that was the very first time in over one hundred years that Evanston township high school was closed because of the weather, and guess how long it was closed one day. You got it. You know, why it was closed because their school the next day. No it was school of that day. Why was the buses couldn't get through because of the snow only because of the buses couldn't get through? You might be surprised that that's not what I was referring to. Oh, okay. Fifty years ago today Led Zeppelin released their first date their debut album. Nice fifty years ago. Yeah. You aren't born yet were you? I was not, sir. Yeah. I was three years away. I was asked what? By your delightful producer. Pick a song. And so I picked that. Kicked the which I don't think was off the premium album. It was not that's how it's up one three. Roger was at your surprise. No. Actually, my surprises left the building. Here's what the surprise was. Oh, okay. Adam was hungry for some pizza. Right. And he wanted to order from Papua Nino's, and then come in there and like make you smell it. And then walk away. But since nobody else wanted pizza. He decided not tour too funny. Yeah. So you you're a good. Boy, you told them I won't have any if it comes exactly good for you. Roger look at us three weeks. And Ryan we are trying and now you're gonna Kamali by the way. Sorry. Brian guacamole and chips tonight. Nice just gave me over his left hours. I offered you some from the beginning you didn't walk in like you do with the HAMAs. So I brought it out to you. I'm just teasing. Thank you. I had Terry hockey, shrimp and fried rice. That sounds good right? I wanna talk a little more about mass hysteria. Our friend Robert Bartholomew who's quoted extensively in the story. From Vanity Fair is on the phone with us. Good morning. Robert. How are you? Great. How you doing good? Thanks so much jumping on the phone. It's been a long time since we've chatted, but I wanted to get you back on the phone because every time we talked about this thing. And I call you every time the New York Times or somebody else wrote something and I'd say. Robert they're saying there's this and you'd say, no, no, no look deeper into it. Doggone it, the the the sciences bad. They don't have this right? And they're going to be wrong. And I don't know if this fully exonerates and makes me it does make become around though to see some some other reporters finally catching onto this and giving you some love and saying this makes a lot more sense than anything else. That's out there. Do you feel happy that like, you know, your family being heard? Well, you know, I understand why there's a misunderstanding with the diagnosis because they are seeing some brain abnormalities, but it's not brain damage with mass psychogenic illness. You can get it often happens Noah logical symptoms, and that's what you've got here in the mistaken those for brain damage, and this isn't the first time things like this had happened, and essentially we have broken off international relations with a foreign country because of some crickets cicadas and cost him hundreds of millions of dollars in lost revenues and got people all worked up about nothing. Let me ask you about that. You you mentioned that with these brain scans. There's some damage so you could see where there was confusion, but it's not brain damaged. It's just these alterations. And in the article that jacket wrote them gentleman, we spoke with recently, he said he wrote in here, but the physical symptoms created by the mind are far from imaginary or faked they're every bit as real every bit as painful and every bit as testable as those that would be inflicted by say a sonic Ray gun. So it all the times you and I have talked. I never I never gleaned this or remember us getting into this. So if there is a case of mass hysteria as we've talked about in the past. And I've always thought I I wouldn't say, oh, it's just in their head. I would say they've convinced themselves that this is happening. So it's that that they're faking, but that they've just convinced themselves that they're worried, but but he, but he took that a step further. And would you say that? Yeah. That's true. Not only do you believe it's happening, but you would actually possibly make yourself sick in an even testable way. Like, you would test that you had hearing loss because your body is so convinced that this happened. Couple of things. First of all, let's go back to that pizza. Okay. The shrimp. Somebody just ran into the newsroom now and said, hey, did you hear, you know, the the shrimp was contaminated with rat poison? You may. Very likely will feel stomach pain. Probably have rapid adaptation. Heartbeat have difficulty breathing. And may even vomit yet. There's nothing physically wrong with you. You're perfectly healthy. And but the thing is with mass psychogenic illness it actually changes the brain. So your ideas, if the whole thing with a placebo effect in the know CBO effect, if as long as you don't have something like really seriously wrong with you, and maybe have a bit of nerves or whatever. And I give you a sugar pill until you're going to feel better you'll often feel better. But the thing is if I give you a sugar pill and say, you know, what this is a rat poison. And we're shoving it down your throat, you're probably not going to feel better, and and feel unwell, and you actually do feel the symptoms, and you do have changes that actually occur in your brain. But you know, it's interesting you say about oh. They said they had the hearing loss, and they had the the white matter track. Changes to interesting things here. I've spent the last few months writing a book on this with the neurologist and a couple of interesting things number one. Is that leaked information before the journal of the American Medical Association study came out that said there's white matter track changes in these patients. Yep. When the journal the American Medical Association came out and February of twenty eight teams they found white matter tract changes out of twenty one patients they had two mild in one moderate case of white matter tract changes if you took twenty one people from WGN if there's that many employees and gave them brain scans. That would be about like you'd have three maybe four people with white very common. It's common in everything from depression to normal aging and the other thing. As you mentioned about hearing loss. That's why. And this was leaked to the Associated Press that there were about a third of the patients that were studied that had hearing loss. Now, this is the other study the Hoffer study the university of Miami those patients he looked at. They were leaking information at a photo of them had hearing loss. Okay. I get that. When they actually did the hearing studies only two had hearing loss. Guess what? Those are the only two patients that had pre existing hearing loss before they went to Cuba. And so what I think has happened here. I used to live and teach aborigines in the outback of central Australia, and I can remember sitting out there. I'm thinking to myself all my God. Why did I come here? I'm going to have hearing loss because there were cicadas crickets that were cricketing and succeeding so loudly that I. I thought it was going to affect my hearing. I've since talked to experts on hearing.
