Dr. Robert Malone Breaks Down the Science Behind Vaccines
"What is a vaccine? How is a vaccine supposed to work? And what is special about the mRNA vaccine technology that you developed doctor Malone? So what is a vaccine? The CDC and their infinite wisdom has redefined the meaning of that word just like the meaning of the word anti vaxxer has been redefined as anybody who is against vaccine mandates. So you're right in this nuanced area of nomenclature. I prefer I'm among other things. Yeah, I've had all this training, but I was a Carpenter and a farmhand before I was a physician and a scientist. And I do like to go back to let's try to use plain language. So for me, a vaccine is as a vaccine does and what a vaccine is intended to do is to elicit an adaptive immune response against some threat, whether it's cancer or of a virus or a bacteria or a toxin. Et cetera, to protect against disease and in the case of infection against infection and spread. In replication in your body. So that's my definition of a vaccine for what it's worth. What is a vaccine used for or intended for? I think it's useful to think about vaccines as having different types or categories of a sneeze in a minute. Here it goes. Bless you. Thank you very much. So no, I don't have COVID. I've already had it twice, and I've been vaccinated. But I do have health. So it's useful to think about vaccines in different categories. There's the cancer vaccines will park those because that's not really relevant. Live attenuated vaccines are basically viruses that are tweaked in some way either intentionally or through passage evolution. To make them less likely to cause disease in humans, but still elicit a very strong immune response. So examples of those include the oral polio vaccine, the smallpox vaccine and the yellow fever vaccine. All of those are fairly wicked and have risk of causing disease in your body because they're still live viruses. They're just tweaked, so they're less disease
"farmhand" Discussed on Marketplace with Kai Ryssdal
"With the caveat that please, you've got to consult your own financial adviser, a not terrible rule to follow when thinking about what to do with your investments is to do the least you possibly can, pick your investments and let them grow over time. It's that pick your investments thing, though, that can get tricky. And that gets us to ramen wigglesworth's new book. It's called trillions. It's about the birth of the index fund and the changes those funds brought to finance, especially the then radical idea of passive investing. People thought it was absolutely insane. I mean, the guy that founded fidelity famously said, who wants to be operated on by the mediocre surgeon, right? Everybody wants to be the best. So the idea of starting a fund that just strives to a mediocrity, this sounded preposterous. And they were either laughed at or figuratively spatter Pong. What was the, what was the disruption? What was the innovation in an index fund? Well, fundamentally, they realized that a lot of human investors active manager says they are often called do a really cruddy job. On average, they actually do worse than the market after the costs of their salaries and all the research they do. And people didn't really kind of understand this until the 60s when you suddenly had computers that could actually crunch the numbers. And that was where the index fund sprung out of. We looked back now and of course we know all this stuff. Did it take a while for the idea of index funds to catch on? Yeah. I mean, this was something that was actually started by big pension funds because they had all the numbers and they could kind of see something was amiss. But for ordering investors, it took people like Jack bogle to really bring what was an open secret in the big investor world into the ordinary investor world. Yeah, boggles the name we all know. I wonder if there's is there someone you can point to and say, this is the father of the next one because of course they were all men. Yes, no, they were all fathers at the time. Yes, there is one guy above all. John Mack mccown, he was a former farmhand from Illinois insanely stubborn and headstrong, ended up a Wall Street, but he was one of the first people that learned how to code. So he ended up giving a speech to the chairman of Wells Fargo at the time and ran some cook, he hired Mac and Mac was the guy that managed to push through eventually the first ever index fund in 1971. If Mac mccown came back today and looked around Wall Street, would he recognize index funds because they've changed? Cornucopia is not an overstatement of the kinds of funds you can invest in in the genre. It's a good point actually. I mean, market has evolved dramatically. I should have stressed that Mac mccrone is still actually with us. A lot of the other early partners of sadly passed away. So I think essentially he just loves innovation, like some of these people for them innovation became they raised on that. Other people, including Jack bogle, certainly were worried about where we were heading as a shuffled off the mortal coil. Well, so since you bring it up, let me talk about financial innovation for a second because as you know, 1213 years ago, the entire global economy almost came a crapper because of innovation on Wall Street. Synthetic CDOs and collateralized debt obligations. Innovation and finance is not always turn out as well as index funds do. No, exactly. And that's a great point. I mean, I make it all the time that, you know, the financial crisis showed that even if finance doesn't care, you don't care about finance, violence does and care about you it affects you profoundly. And index funds is one of those rare examples of an actually beneficial financial innovation. Those saved millions of Americans, hundreds of billions of dollars and trillions indirectly. But because all positive innovation also has negative side effects, we can kind of start seeing the contours of downsides to this revolution than the early 60s and 70s. Well, give a little bit. I mean, what are the not greats about this? Well, one of the things is just that people can shovel any old crap into an index fund and say, oh, So humans were great at taking great ideas and overdoing them. And more broadly speaking, leading to this massive concentration of economic and financial power in just a few hands. And that's the one thing I do think biz monitoring. None of none of my business, but are you an index fund guy in your own life or do you actively trade your stocks? No, I definitely don't trade. I talk to some of the smartest people in the world and they get humbled by the markets all the time. So I think the vast majority of people should stick to boring index funds in you'll actually do way better than your neighbors and day trading payers in the long run. And you read this book, and you know it all came from. Robin wigglesworth. He's a journalist at the Financial Times. Also, he's got a new book out. It's called trillions, how a band of Wall Street renegades invented the index fund and changed finance forever..

The U.S. Has A History Of Linking Disease With Race And Ethnicity
"Okay. So today we're talking about the suspicion and harassment of asians and asian americans as the krona virus spreads and this kind of fear actually has a long history in the united states right gene a very long history and actually what we learned from. Eric lee is that the seeds of this discourse of china and asia being unsanitary and crowded those seeds were planted long before chinese immigration to the us the teeming hordes of millions living in health and then as americans who travel to china and then came back to the united states. They spread those ideas. Unfortunate the own brand for the us low so right in the mid eighteen hundreds you have the first waves of chinese immigrants coming over to find fortune in the california gold rush and they also become a source of cheap labor working as farmhands building railroads etc and eventually this becomes a source of tension. Exactly so when the domestic economy takes a downturn different immigrant groups start competing for these previously undesirable jobs and you start seeing harassment even massacres of chinese workers but erica says that the idea of chinese immigrants being dirty and disease. That's still with us. We know from the very beginning As americans in general are starting to debate the so-called problem of chinese immigration. They are explicitly tying china chinese people chinese spaces with disease and contagion. Historians have shown that the rhetoric is about chinatown as plague spots as pools of laboratories of infection. Erica says that way back. In the late nineteenth century we really started to see specific policies that reflect this thinking around chinese as a threat to public. Oh okay give me an example of that. So erica told us about quarantine that happened in one thousand nine hundred in san francisco when the discovery bluebonnets plague in chinatown Bannock plague that's a potential deadly bacterial. Disease the black death right. People believe rats. Broad across the pacific steamship was unlikely. Source of the disease. Erica says san francisco officials at the time. Saw the chinese immigrants as vermin infested. So all of chinatown was placed under quarantine. And there were these periodic. Campaigns to quote disinfect chinatown flooding basements in that district with acid washing the walls with lie tearing down old buildings that rhetoric by the way erica says has been applied to a lot of immigrant groups throughout history but there is a particular way in which it has been racialized with chinese chinese as dog eaters as eaters of weird and strange animals including rats and mice and that they if they are eating and consuming rats that are known to spread disease than chinese people as a race are also carriers of disease so what happened then was. San francisco's quarantine. So the plague became racialized blamed on a group of people. The city ordered an immediate quarantine of chinatown with orders to remove all whites from the affected area so so white. Residents of san francisco were ordered to leave chinatown but chinese people could not. It's such an intense thing to know and accept this history and realize it's been with us for a really long time. It's been with us. And we haven't really grappled with all of this of course is happening against the backdrop of the chinese exclusion act which was passed in eighteen. Eighty two and it prevented chinese laborers from entering the united states. Which this time of heightened anti-chinese rhetoric and sentiment that law would actually mark the first time the u. has banned the immigration of an entire ethnic group. So when you and your co hosts shreen. Marcel marashi spoke to eric harley. Eric told you a very personal story about her grandfather. And what happened to him when he immigrated to the us and it's really relevant to what we're talking about today so erica's grandfather came to the us through angel island right angel island. It's the ellis island of the west coast. It was in san francisco bay and there was this whole special system of scrutiny for chinese immigrants in particular so erica's grandfather like so. Many chinese immigrants angel island was pulled aside and inspected separately from other asian immigrants because people believe that chinese immigrants were carriers of disease. What a way to come into a country and she said that her grandfather never told her that story directly but she was interested in it and because she's historian she actually took the records of her grandparents interogations and specifically. She found her grandfather's medical exam from angel. It was it was nothing like anything. I've read before. Immigration officials ordered my grandfather to be subjected to the most invasive medical exam that i've seen in hundreds of these records so they had the medical doctor at angel island examined him for for diseases but also to measure every aspect of his body. His teeth his his genitals his. You know it's a his height to determine what age he was to determine weather his claim of being seventeen when he was immigrating was actually true and they included just all of these detailed notes in a record and it was. It was quite shocking to read. That's really just I mean i hear the story. And i think it's important at a time like this to hear stories like this so We've been talking specifically about chinese immigration but as you mentioned earlier this history of public health and hygiene efforts and how it gets mixed up with race and ethnicity. It's also happened to other immigrant. Groups right i mean. This is something that erica talks about a lot in her book which is of course about xenophobia in the united states but it wasn't just chinese immigrants who were being targeted in this way. I mean if you look at what was happening around the same time on the southern border mexican immigrants. The us were being treated very similarly. This is one of the ways in which to phobia works. It's it uses an already existing playbook certain immigrants are are threats there there threats because they bring crime also because they take away jobs but also because they they are starting genetically carriers of disease. And surprise american policymakers setup immigration procedures for mexicans. That looked a lot like what was happening to the chinese. On the west coast and when mexican immigrants arrived across the border they were routinely subjected to invasive humiliating and harmful disinfecting baths using pesticides to route out laos but also to cleanse mexican people's their clothing and their baggage before entering the united states. I mean just the fact that mexicans were seen as carrying disease in the same way that chinese were and that this pattern is repeated. Is really interesting. This is much harsher. Then what happened at ellis island where european immigrants certainly faced scrutiny. But the the medical exams were known as six second physicals and chinese people in particular. Still carry around that stigma. And we're seeing that procession playoff when it comes to corona virus. Absolutely i you know. We're exile eighty and fear out there right now about getting sick. That is getting tangled up in this legacy and you know. I'm picturing who are listening to this and they're thinking yes. This history is real. I know this sounds really bad. But i'm just worried about eating at a chinese restaurant gene and emily just buried and i i just. I'm worried about sitting next to someone who is asian. what do i do. That's not how disease works. We actually put this question to erica and she said With each headline with each new case with each new bizarre choice of photo for a new story lines the flames of anxiety right now in the us but racist scapegoating and outright discrimination does not have to accompany the things. It is an unfortunate echo of the past. But it doesn't have to be
The Case Of The Murdered Jewess
"We now lay before the reader. A full account of a shocking murder that of miss sarah alexander the beautiful polish jewess. Who was foully murdered in an east new york cornfield. The crime was one of the most shocking that has ever occurred in the metropolis or its vicinity. Cousin of the dead girl to whom she was very much attached was arrested and the discovered fact of her near maternity coupled with the expected arrival of the prisoner's wife from germany furnished. The only clue there was to the horrible deed. Eddie thank you so much for joining me today. Thanks for having their happy to be here. So we're talking about some murder. Pamphlets there were four that were published about the case of pesach. Rubinstein were featuring two of them. These pamphlets were type of pulp literature. They've been around for a long time and were especially popular in the nineteenth century. Tell us more about them. These were mostly eight to sixteen page pamphlets that were often illustrated and described typically in lurid detail well-known murders that took place in the united states. Obviously the time. There's no radio. Tv internet print media is the only thing available and some of them are. I guess you could say enhanced. Sometimes the writers make things up both were pale with lips compressed and is haggard and as they halted and looked at each other their hearts appeared to be like open books every feeling every emotion could be read. She had a knife with which her own life blood was to be. Shed thrust into her bosom and drawing it fourth. She held it toward her companion. He trembled violently. His knees smote together and he was altogether like a man intoxicated. It's obvious these pamphlets were not written by people who knew about jewish beliefs and practices. They contain some false information. They show a lack of knowledge of how jews live and worship. What's an example of this. One of them shows him preying on his hands and knees with his hands clasped before him. So this is obviously how a christian praise and not at all. How a jew praise our artist has graphically sketched him while at prayer and from the illustration a better idea can be gained than any description can give. Now that we've heard about the pamphlets can you give us a detailed overview of the story contained within the particular ones were exploring in eighteen. Seventy five a body was found in a field in east new york. East new yorkers in brooklyn and at the time and eighteen seventy five. It was a far. Now it's not on december fourteen. He found the body of a woman in a cornfield on the ground behind a stack of corn. These stacks were at the lower end of the field near the fence. The farthest off from the plank road. There was a shawl lying by the side of the body. The corpse was about two feet from the base of the corn stack. The body lay on the back and was all cut about the neck win. This went and informed. Mr wessel who in company two other men went and viewed it farmhand had her and he went to the police and told them they came investigated. Took the body away to the morgue. They know who was there had been no reports of anyone missing in brooklyn and so they chose to do so. This person must from manhattan. The police were puzzled. No report had been received of any late disappearance from the neighborhood. Nevertheless the region was scoured. All during tuesday afternoon and evening. The police station was thronged and officers. Say that not less than two thousand persons saw the body no one could identify it and the conclusion was arrived at that. She was a stranger in the village. So what they did was. They put an advertisement in a newspaper which was actually very common at the time claiming that a body had been found and they wrote a description of it now at the same time a woman who worked for a particular family on the lower side had gone missing. Her name was. Sarah alexander at her brother went to the rubinstein family where she worked and he said you know. Have you seen sarah. She didn't come home from work yesterday and they said no she was here until such a time and then she left. We haven't seen her since so her brother. Put an ad in the newspaper looking for missing person and describing her the new york sun december fourteenth eighteen. Seventy five a girl missing since the afternoon of the twelfth age. Seventeen years stout middle height face dark dressed in a light colored dress with the black over skirt striped shawl small gold earrings with red stones. Any information will be received by. J p alexander number thirty essex street coincidentally. The two advertisements appeared on the same page in the same paper and they describe the same person. The father of the rubinstein family happened to get that paper. He saw the advertisements and he went to the police station. Ad said that girl is sarah alexander of number thirty essex street. She was a good religious girl. She did not stay away from home and if she was murdered away out there. Some ruffians must have dragged her away so the police came to the home and began to interview everyone to find out where she had last been seen and while they were entering everyone. One of the sons came in. His name was pace off rubinstein on monday. The sun with great perturbation of manner told them that he had had a dream the previous night. He dreamed that. Sarah alexander was lying murdered alongside of corn stalks ten miles outside of the city. She was murdered by an italian and the knife was close beside her. She wants me to bury her. He said

Children leave out porridge for mischievous lives as bribe to make sure they behave the elves. Not the kids. The idea of needing to keep these elms or nisa. Happy goes back to at least the middle ages when farmers explained various bad luck and the hardships of a long winter on the nisa farm. If you kept the nissan happy your livestock would survive the winter in all else would go. Well if you disrespected or upset the nida you may find horrors in the morning like your cow.

Yeah, I mean I kind of have. A pretty good roadmap for him going I know my ending. I've no mining from the beginning Yep just a matter of. Getting there the way I want to. so yeah I'd say early next year. Go Google what else What else do you have in the in the works? Obviously working on the Pilot Program C. which I'm sure is huge undertaking and very exciting. Anything else that you're like super excited. Yeah nothing I can really talk about. We'll see. Yeah. Yeah, I have I have a couple of things I have something. I'm actually working off of the book market. Local which should be interesting, just because again it's it is a completely new market for me. I was at a calculated decision on your part to be like you WANNA. Explore them some of this. Yeah I mean it's and this was actually before a before the Kobe Kit, which is just kind of saw yet. Industry had shifted a bunch and I've been completely. Hundred Percent Comics for the last ten years are over twelve years at this point, and it just felt like a good opportunity to kind of stretch my legs and See what when I when I did my toes into that into that industry innovator in so far really positive of so we'll see you. There's bad. What else we have some more stuff kind of kicking around with chew of a possible chewed okay? So fingers crossed on that if that works out to the special. I've always at least a handful of other kind of small projects that are kind of percolating on. It's just a matter of. When the put him out of one of them like I said is a self published than? Sure exactly how it's GonNa work but I'M A BIG FAN OF A. Fan Of really nice production is on like a really well made a textural book. Of So I actually have an idea. For really it'd be probably pretty small print run Are you familiar for me with a I think. I'M GONNA which you're his pronunciation, but a Michelle fe our feast. Cobra read. I. Love the fact that he was self publishing on se with before he got picked up by image. And I love the fact that he was literally doing everything from the ground up including stapling the book and fold the book. Stamping every book I mean that's that's incredible. in my background was I was I worked a copy shop for years so I. Love Getting my hands into the stuff. So whatever I did in in terms of self publishing, it would be a very small print run, but my hand would be. My hands will be on every one of them. Missing yes, so, that's something I've been kicking around for while to. Cool cool that'd be. That's very exciting. Yeah, it sounds like Ah, that that level of craft going into it is like super exciting, but also it's gotta be a little intimidating in terms of like man. I gotta like literally build this, but you know there's I'm sure there's a creative edge that's. The hard part is time investment. It's ask you know if you costs if you're if you're working on one thing here, you can't be working on this over here. Governor his arm out the right amount of time to make the work in. Do all the other parts that go with it. I I'm curious to. You mentioned the book. Markelle thing which you know we'll. We'll see hopefully her soon, but you meant. You have younger kids. You find yourself gravitating towards wanting to make stories for them. like in that younger realm, or is that just not? The type store you, you create necessarily. Date Welt my my oldest is nine He keeps asking me. What are you GonNa? Make something that I can actually. Work on it I don't I. Don't know yet of but everything. Generally speaking, all of the pitches are the majority of the pitches either working on in the ideas that comes to tend to. Tend to be a bit darker a bit more mature. I'm thirty eight. I'm coming up on forty in a small at home, so there's a lot of like heavier things that typically are like all my mind. Yeah, I've been. He's been bugging me about it. I think it's going to have to happen probably in the next few years, right? Good deal good. It'll be a win for him for sure. Goal what? kind of taking a different gear her. What is a comic or a work? Coming out right now that you think more people should be reading. Reading. As hard because I'm not I'm not plugged in all that much right now, sure. I can tell you the books. Some of my favorite books period that I think I'm always surprised. People don't know about these folks. Lock and key Joe Hill and Gabriel Rodriguez Ninety. I mean I. Guess More people know about it now since of the TV show. But amazing amazing series Also southern bastards Jason Aaron, which is in one of my favorite books. Yeah I mean I that there are a lot of things about that book in how? Is How unique in self contained in raw it was. Inspired a lot of what I do inform in. That book and of paper girls from Brank Avon. those are probably the two books in fell cell by Warren. Ellis. Oh Yeah, okay. That was another one that was just super super influential to me and just kinda showed me. What's possible? Know as far as making not just a comic of making an actual like experience like cover to cover One one vision. What farmhand you know who cover to cover? There's no ads in the back of the only adds that the backer stuff that are you know, tied the farmhand or chew in some way? Yet those are kind of my big ones, but all headline offer by plane..

"And I imagine it's probably a lot like having a daughter in the guy shows up to take her out on the first date. Yeah okay, you know, take care of my daughter, right? Yeah let's sense of love and care and all that you put into it for sure. Yeah, we've been. We built this thing for really long time. I mean Jonah I spoke on a daily basis every day. Eight years building this thing and yeah I. I'm a little protective, but I mean it's. It's in good hands, but it is a little weird to see new Choo Choo work. Come out in, it's not mine. Yeah, yeah, I think would have to be. No, that's that's interesting. You. Will I look forward to the the Farmhand Chu? Potential crossover that's coming because activate could be a good deal. I, was gonna ask you as well like see you. You had this really interesting experience where you're pretty singularly focused on a work that was critically acclaimed are nominated we because one the handful of Eisner's for the work in now you know you come into the market. Not Quite a decade later right, but for launching until like comics are in a slightly different place, right? They went to launched what you mentioned. Personally like okay. The business side getting used to being the sole owner of this property. What do you? What do you see changing in the like the overall market like landscape for comics? Now that your running the farmhand show yourself like what is it to you? That seems the most different what has changed for the better of the worst seed. Etc. Yeah I. It's a hard hard question show. It's a completely different market I mean. I think we hits. In two thousand nine, we hit at just the right moment of and I. Think we were in two thousand nine, we were we were in the event fatigue. I think. This wave of events immoral was doing I think it was like secret invasion rain, and all this is event on copy event on top of the event, and everyone's really serious in very Dr. yes And then we came out as goofy little like Cannibal. Cup Book, and you know Kinda did way more than we ever expected in right at like the image revolution happens. It's it's. I don't I don't know how to answer that. I mean I think. Obviously there's more work than there's ever been more quality work in there's ever been. The tricky thing about that is. You know we. We're we're more competitive than we've ever been also and we're not know. Comments were competing with next. Let's we're competing with everything. We're competing with online news. I mean we. There's there's only so many hours in the day and people have so little attention. IDING for it. I think. It feels like to me. that people are going to start investing more in creators in less on franchises. 'cause I had a lot of conversations I mean even after finishing shoe in especially in the last couple of years. When I convention, or I talked to another pro that pros sweating about what am I? What is next I? How do I? How do I how do I grab my people? I. You know the people that are the most loyal to me that by all my stuff, no matter what it out in how and why? I commend you, don't yeah. So I think I could see more self publishing. I could see probably more experimentation with an I'm speaking I mean surely also not just from talking to other people, but also I'm thinking bat tra- your patient, which just possibly digital comics, maybe subscription models. You know trying to just cut out the BS and just deal directly with my people. Yeah Hub. But beyond that honestly I'm a little concerned that the at the direct market. I don't know. I don't know I'm worried because I talked to a lot of time, creator GimMe Gimme all the direct market answers. Right now I'm a little worried. Because I. I talked I. Feel like I'm talking to more and more comic creators who've made made a living at this for a long time. A more and more of a really concerned about you know I. Don't know if I can keep doing comics. Made move on video games are may move on to. Something in Hollywood or something sure right that concerns me, especially coming out of a cova situation with shops closing crazy I i. don't know what's next. Honestly. Yeah, yeah, no, it's it's an interesting time. Because I, they just had the Cochran and books get numbers and all that stuff. I don't know if you're up closer. You're following that, but like two thousand nineteen was a record setting year in terms of comic sales, but then so much of that is young, young, adult, or even kids have stopped right with like guard like a day Pilkin. Dog Man. Is this this like? Powerhouse phenomena it's it's really interesting. The way comics aren't would I think of them. As as a big superhero fan growing up in as now you know that image revolution being like really formative me getting into comics as a as a going to shop reader right like the actual market isn't necessarily that even though that still exists installed, does business right You mentioned like these like scripture model, or just like like self-published kicked her starters type stuff which I'm increasingly feeling almost like I. I have to back kicks herself. Not just because I want to support certain creators, but also like it becomes this thing where it has a rarity to it. That is hard to capture where it's like Oh. This won't be on comic solid are can't get this in my shop. I half the back and right. Don't get it. You know it is interesting. Yeah I, think there's an urgency that people kinda miss in a direct market and I, I have a lot of fans that. You know they you know they'll over from getting the fees they'll go to the traits which is cool I get! Of, the problem is too many people do that. We may not get a trade. Because I mean the floppies. Keep the lights on, so if you're jumping over a you know. I don't know that you may not get book. Yeah, yeah, so I think having. Having people realized the that? It isn't urgent situation that if you really do believe in A. Creator of the story. They're telling you need to invest and I think that is the beauty of a kick star. You get to see while you know if I don't if I don't Jump On this bandwagon now there is no other opportunity to do that. Right up at that goes a long way I think. Yeah Yeah for sure. No, it's. It's a perpetual tugging poll I think it'll be like I, don't I think certainly I'm a believer that comics are are here to stay in creative voices. You know that are gonNA find a way. It's just a matter of okay. What is that actual outlet because I don't think anyone right now would say like no changes. Coming I think especially mentioned. The pandemic is eye opening for literally every single business I work in marketing, and it's like a cover a lot of sectors. They're all changing like this. Is You know it's huge? An in comics are not immune to that obviously as we've seen so. Really retailers need to be open to experimenting also. Mean as soon as covert lockdown happen I mean there were tons of Kinda distribution groups at showed up just kind of people just talking about how we fix this. How do we fix this right in? There seemed to be an openness to experiment and try new things, but then the second someone would kind of chime in with a new thing he would immediately get shut. Shut down. Yeah, yeah, because you know owed dogs don't WanNA learn a new trick a lot of times. Yeah, that's just easier, right? It's easier to keep doing what you've done. It's a new day I, think.

"Which may be, that's concerning I'm not sure. But I mean it's it's very easy. I knew that I would start. In a place where it was, you know I think that in terms of of rhythm from the first issue onward and I knew the first issue was going to be really complex is have a lot of moving parts is going to introduce all the different. You know there's GonNa be horror. and. There's going to be this family thing. Warm and cuddly family thing which some goofy humor, but I knew as you know as the first arc went along. It was going to be a bit more benign like I wasn't. I wasn't in a hit you with a hard horror in the first arc. Saving it. I was really like IGGY my spot, so you know I thought it. would be the big moments at the end of that arc where I would drop. You know I. Drop a bomb in. You'd see something. You'd see some really horrific. Don't care. that. You weren't expecting. But I knew that the next arc was going to be darker because we had established all these all this stuff, we'd stat foundation the first arc so second heavier. It's going to be. It's GonNa hit a little harder in his new. Go Faster. which is what happened so by that? By the time the art ends. I think I surprise people with how dark it win. Again. David Harper over sketch of had said something about. That I have been the comedy guy for so long. To do feel like silly guy, you know. But then. Nine when you see thorn as she really is. for the first time it gets really dark. Really quickly and I think it freaked him out a little bit which I took as a good thing. Yeah Yeah, and I mean in the more you go along issue, fifteen or not read that will yet. Yes, yeah, I mean. It gets pretty freaking heavy. Right for sure no by that by that third. ARC Calling it. The comedy book is like it's not. It's not that anymore you know like, and that's clearly like a conscious decision I. Think on your part creatively. It's very effective. How much going into it? How much did you want to move away for? Maybe that label like? Is that like maybe not even throw it away. 'cause obvious work. You're proud of on, but how much it was in your head like I want to show I can do other things you know I. WanNa show. There's more to me creatively. Who is very very deliberate I mean I I mean if you look at the first issue, the very first page. Is Start off a little humor star loss in it, I mean I thought it opening up with You know dead chickens in chicken yard was very fitting coming from shoe, which was all about? Urge Flus chickens. Employer the wounds are still on to open right for a lot of people. It was perfect. It was a perfect. Way To bring people who only knew me from this one thing in beret them into this thing in his star, soft of goofy with the two kids, and then the very next page it immediately. It's really dark really. so I think I had a bit of a chip on my shoulder. I wanted to establish that I could carry something very complex. That was a bit heavier than she ever was. mean had some heavy moments, but for the most art. I think. For the most part I don't think I think. I was kind of goofy comedy guy who could draw anything? I could draw Ghalem. made out of Spaghetti. I'm good at that, but I wanted to granted. Difference. Dynamic who I was as a creator, so it's up focus with Vertical I think it. No, it comes across definitely in the work because it's. It had that feel initially in all. Admit like my when I checked out. I issue is definitely like I love Robert. Start on chew like I'm really curious to see what he can do trying to do it all because that's something we see in comics like every now and again right where someone who is previously known as an artist is like okay. They're going to progress into telling their own stories. What is that look like in your case? It's like there's a there's a clear progression I think which is which is cool to see of like Oh. This is you when you're on your own like this. You do have different storytelling since bill even though it's very much like. It, it could fit in a almost shared universe. Chew I. Think like there's obviously those sensibilities don't go away. We've talked about it. John and I kind of A. There! There's some seeds again upon There's some seeds in farmhand for some potential crossover. This stuff ended that no one has caught I. Don't think. In there so I think we've talked about the crossover. We just did a crossover with chew and outer darkness John's edible. Just a matter of time we've already talked about doing maybe. A one shot to farmhand maybe flip book kind of how we did a shoe and revival. so yeah, it's yeah, it crossover pretty easily. I think yeah, for sure it would. It would work pretty smoothly. I would look forward to that a lot. You mentioned John in new collaborated on outer darkness to Crossover. And, writer John Layman is now. He's launching A to C H you here is coming from image. What's it like for you to not be a part of that is there like obviously like your your collaborators in and I take it still friends What is it weird to see like the universe continuing While you're off doing your own thing, or did you? Did you WANNA have a part of that or like. What's your was your experience there? We talked about it. I mean everything. You know I mean way back I mean when whenever shoe finished You know I wasn't sure what I was going to do next and I was I was. I knew that I always knew. I mean before I started working on shoe in two thousand eight I. was I was always writing my own stuff. and I always intended to get back to that and. You know hopefully use the chew fan base that we got in kind of like build upon that. So, but I was terrified. It was really scary to Kinda. Take that leap especially when I've been comfortable for the last eight years in which you. So I was I was asking John like crazy? Like? Hey, you know what a what else you got. Maybe we can do something else. And you know he had nothing for me, you know he had he had he actually had she lettered arcus I think he wrote you out of darkness. Before we finish shoot, I could be wrong homered. Sitting around for years and I just didn't feel like my thing, but I think John Chanted Way. Better job than I would have done carrying that story. but I so. By the time, he came back with a shoe story. I was already working on farm head. Yeah, I'm so eventually. He came back with shoes hugh. In! I love it and I. Actually I did do a couple of character sketches. But it just didn't. It wasn't the right time. I mean I have so much other stuff going on and Dan, boat would. WHO's the artists on was phenomenal I've been a fan of his I. Mean for years. He brings a very different thing to the table, but that's a good thing. So but I I would be lying about said it's It's not like you know. It is kind of like having a kid. I have three kids My daughter is four goal. She's no, she's.

"Decided then and there you nominee be of sensitively honest of in. Try The scare these people away. If they if they stick around, and maybe there's something to them and that's immediate. That's what I did. Was I just sold them? Look this is this was my previous experience with Hollywood? Really not that impressed I be okay for farmhand was never anything yet accountable? But, if this does become something you know, this is what I want I want to be involved I want to oversee things. I WANNA write. Some of the episodes I WANNA I wanna be controlling this thing. I understand this like network considerations and things like that. it's it's you know to collaboration obviously more so than it is in the comic. The comedy is very much. You know appear vision of that putting together sure. So. Surprisingly that that was you know the folks that are talking to AMC and a few other people. They were there they wanted. They wanted me to be involved. They wanted my voice. They wanted me writing episodes. They've wanted they wanted. You know they. They gave me more than I was expecting them to give me I saw. Yeah, so it's been. It's been a really cool experience. Good deal where you at like in the process currently I'm writing the pilot It's been a slow process with with the covert and the lockdown and everything. Yes, sure, but it's been really positive of I've learned a ton in the draft that we have so far is really solid I think it's. It's very true to the book. But it is you know the thing I learned writing? It was you know comics is a very limited medium and a lot of ways. You know we only get twenty thirty pages a month. you know a few panels per page with a little dialogue sprinkled here and there around the images you know when you're versus like television, which can be half an hour to an hour. Worth of just you know a lot of things happening a lot of dialogue a lot of action. So I was able to expand the universe in a way that I couldn't into common, which is nice. Did. You have a lot of ideas kind of on like the cutter floor just by the nature of comics that you're able to now sort of like resurface and you know build more deaths. Yeah, yeah, mostly character depth. Of backstory especially with a family like I knew. You know generational. Curses and ties. In trauma are a big part of with. It is right in I've tapped into that with the comic, but I knew there was way more with like you know grandparents, great grandparents, and just like different wings of the family. That I wanted to get into that I. Just don't think I have the time to the comic Chur Yeah No. It's you have to inform you do that. That blend of using flashbacks sparingly. You're in there too right to build both the mystery and sort of this family and their history over time, so I'm looking forward to seeing hopefully how that comes out in TV but so so looking at the comic. A little more directly You mentioned okay. There's this this really. It's a story of this family. Right and they. The father figure here Jed. He's the the proprietor of this this human transplant. Endeavor, that is this Miracle Cure, but obvious farm progresses. Increasingly becomes. You know a a bigger and bigger problem. there seemed to be in just from reading like your backup notes in some stuff interviews. You've done elements of autobiography so farmhand. A the protagonist for example is comic. Strip himself right. How how do you decide sort of what to reveal from your own experience? Verse what to Keep Personal? What is that pushing poultry you? I think there's more in terms of autobiography I think it's way more metaphor than rex one to one. You know this happened to me in the comic, you know. A girl broke up with me in real life so like a girl breaks up with me and reading the comic. Not that kind of thing It's more it's. It's very very metaphorical in. It's there's a lot of. Symbolism in the comic. Like I said it's not a one to one ratio, even with the main characters Zeke. You know I knew the second. I made a Makamba Creator that everyone was going to say oh. It's clearly rob's doing himself right. But no, I'm actually like I look back. One of my favorite writers Stephen King. And when I look at his old stuff, my favorite book of his. Was Salems Lot? Cavalier was his first. features you know he's the stars. He's a writer. He's this is a writer goes back down to the small town of Salem. Gets caught up in all this craziness and. You know. I always liked that so. I I know comments. I know that kind of mindset. You know. I'M GONNA I'm GonNa do that. You just have fun with it of yeah. I've gotten some flak and people have said you know. Oh, it's. Just what what if this is real I don't have. I don't have a body part. Form back home. You know not quite that. We do have some therapy to hash out I think. That's your actual family. Through it right right? Okay good deal now. That makes lot of sense You mentioned the Stephen King Influence and there's there's definitely like. An agree degree, but informed, and there's a real element of horror tall. This you know like it is inherently kind of gross and I think you play that up both both at for comedy, but also like it can be pre- pretty like concerning the way, there's these sort of Zombie. Plant plans zombies walking around What do you think it is about like? Taking the the horror and comedy that that you take to so naturally in storytelling. Is that something you've always done in your work I? Just sort of like this is my personality or did you develop that? Even like on you like that was just that was Kinda comedy book at heart you know. I mean some of it's just natural to me I? I have. A. Kind of have a I can have a dark sense of humor. And I find that comedy in in horror or not that far apart. They're pretty close so you know like with a book by Chew where? You know we were juggling so many things You know you had your your your horror? You had your comedy you had You know you had different kinds of comedy. Frankly you hadn't the physical comedy comedy. The slapstick you had like the more subtle things that the Easter eggs. I think. I think I've just gotten pretty good at is just look at life I mean life itself. Is Pretty Complex and we come in and out of different moods in different John Ras all the time in our day to day. You go from. You know crying laughing in a heartbeat. Things very, you know. There is no clear line between these things so whenever I kind of approach, comic Beige and the story. I kind of treated that way again like really like organic way like I find humor kind kinda shows up sometimes, and it's not something I have to I have to make happen in I mean when you're dealing with. You know my visual style. My style a again. The humorous Kinda shows up. Some time is naturally I seen in my head that way it comes to the page that way in horror is no different I, if owner is actually very easy for me to write or is probably the most the most easy thing for.

"I'm being. My favorite freeze on some of comic. Novels for series, looking for their insights on inspirations behind the work in ideas or hidden material may miss am excited to welcome brought Hillary Crater farmhand, one of my favorite ongoing comic, since two thousand eighteen farmhand invites us into a world of little human body parts farming, where nearly all ailments can seemingly be cured by miracle transplants in this world where new limbs trees there's all sorts of family in town drama, not to mention some excellent comedy in a supernatural mystery at the heart of the emerging science rob thanks so much for joining today Can you tell US initially? How farmhand came to be a what brought you to telling the story? Mean prior to this I. I've been working eight years of record. She framers comments which is a really really weird book I I kind of I broke. My I cut my teeth in commerce with that for An actor was as it was winding down. We always do a sixty issue run and we will come to that. Early when sixteen. so I kind of started thinking. You know what what the Hell Am. I GONNA do next You know kind of Dugout all the ideas you know every every creator has. An posted notes recruits down. Everything out and sort of rifling through all hated everything I had. Immediately started Johnny Manson's of new ideas. New concepts and eventually had is really weird idea, this kind of image of a a tree with body parts off of it. It was just really creepy kind of striking image. In I immediately got the hook. It was like okay, so this is an organic farmer who grows you get human organs. That makes sense. and it just grew from there for the next year. I kind of spend time. Developing at shaping with sore would be. At the end of twenty, sixteen has me wrapped up to about a month later I for one in A. Few Years of said. Cool very cool now. When you're developing a concept like that, Du, do you start like writing out ideas I or does he do actually visually begin processing. You mentioned like the tree in the limbs. Do you start like actually sketching that before you get to story beats essentially? Ended with a with a with a concept is. As I think I started jotting down I I started a pitch document pretty quickly. In writing down you and asking questions a lot of it, we just long walks in my driveway of just talking to myself and saying okay well. What Kinda guy would grow human organs Why would he do it? What's the world like? What are the? What were the primary usage fee and? Grew out through their Really you know it's going to be fun, but it was very organic. Aloe sure. Would have to be given the given the subject matter. So farmhand is is your first big crater work where you're writing and drawing like you mentioned coming off of two incredibly claimed Ron one of my favorite comics of all time that you drew the whole I think all sixty plus issues. Right was was all you. Yeah, which is you know pretty incredible run How big of a challenge was it to leap from the the art and storytelling side to doing it all on farmhand, because even even on to you know you. Have you have more of a voice? You have more personality I. Think than a lot of times are associated with in comics like you had all these written in jokes and things right clearly, you're getting to voice. Your opinion and obviously it's a collaboration between you and Redder John, Layman. But now it's totally you farmhand. How how big a jump is after you? It was pretty now. I've been just on the. For eight years was working on shoe. It was basically me just kind of hanging out in my room of own destroying every day. I just get up everyday and you know. Put the headphones on and just draw age. That was my goal for eight years and I didn't have to deal with too much of the business aspects of it, you know. I had my own my career to manage, but like you know dealing with image, Alava, crest, and. Hollywood stuff all that I wasn't dealing with all of this. Is John was? The second. I started doing all of this. You know writing this ribs growing thing, and then you know managing lederer colorist in design her in. Dealing with image morning at marketing. In then started an branch out and kind of put out feelers in Hollywood and handle the press and do the conventions. Yeah, it's. It's pretty darn intense. Sure sure. Yeah, no, and that that is fascinating like even because we we so often like fans in his readers take for granted like okay. You're doing the liberal storytelling, and that's a lot of work on its own. Own, but it's it's that whole business side of things is obviously no, no small thing. I was going to save this for later, but you mentioned it. You know like the the Hollywood side of things like you've already got from what I've seen in stories is AMC signed on in some capacity to look at farm. Hint here. I know chew is had like. It seems like a thousand different stories over the years alert. Thousand Acres. Yeah Yeah like how? How did the experience on Chew? I guess help you. In that specific regard in terms of like okay I've seen what that property's gone through managing business whether it be getting into Hollywood or just marking in general like what what are some of the bigger lessons?
