"I'm doctor Anthony Liz, and this is climate connections. For decades, dick Bennett of Fayetteville Arkansas was an anti war activist and a Professor of literature at the university of Arkansas. He says reading has shaped his life. To me, books produced a visceral experience and social action. So when he started reading about climate change, he grew increasingly alarmed about how warming will affect the world's most vulnerable people. And he was inspired to make his corner of Arkansas a welcoming place for people who are forced to leave their homes to escape rising seas, droughts, and heat waves. So we started sharing information about climate migration with city government. For example, his city's chief of staff. She wanted to learn and so I passed on books to her and talk with her and he gave the city a Fayetteville $100,000 to establish a small trust fund. Money from the fund will support nonprofits that provide resettlement services for climate refugees. He says it's a model that other cities can follow. I'm hoping that this endowment can inspire other cities to imitate it that will give me enormous satisfaction climate connections is produced by the Yale center for environmental communication.

Glenn Kirschner's Insight Into Oath Keeper Trial Revelations
"So you have been covering, obviously, you've been at the oath keeper trial. Obviously the bombshell is Stewart Rhodes claimed to have contact with the Secret Service agent according to an ex member. Oath keepers founder Stewart Rhodes claimed he was in contact with the Secret Service agent in the months leading up to J 6, a former member of the far right group testified. John Zimmerman, the former oath keeper, testified. He recalled how the oath keepers gathered guns in preparation for the possibility that Trump would invoke the insurrection act. He said of roads he did have a number for a Secret Service agent or claimed it to be a Secret Service agent back in September. Give us your take on that. So, you know, the Secret Service agent angle is interesting, but I think it's a bit of a sideshow and even a distraction because it has nothing to do with the charges against these 5 oath keepers that are on trial. So listen, I've been in there every day. I've gotten to talk, not about the case, but with the prosecution team, my former homicide prosecutors. I know a lot of the folks involved in the case. I would caution them not to go down that side road of Secret Service stuff and what's Trump involved because that has nothing to do with the charges. It's intensely interesting and concerning if Stuart Rhodes is actually in communication with the Secret Service, but mind you, this was back during a rally, a Trump rally in September in Fayetteville, North Carolina, so it really doesn't have much to do with the insurrection on January 6th. Interesting and will probably hear more about it in the future.

Charlie's 'Educate Don't Mandate' Tour Visits University of Arkansas
"We had a great night last night in Fayetteville, Arkansas. We are going to auburn tonight where eagle is what they say at auburn university. I'll be there with Ali stuckey. Last night we spoke a lot of things my suspension from Twitter as well was so interesting. The questions that were asked in the Q&A format yesterday at University of Arkansas. And this kind of goes to show what the college campus kind of cartel has done. So I talked about a lot of different things. I talked about tyranny. I talked a little bit about kind of what's happening with the transgender issue. I talk about inflation. And all people wanted to talk about was the transgender issue. That was it. Completely fascinated them. Would you find happy to oblige and then finally we got a question on inflation. We talked about how as the currency gets less valuable it literally steals money from young people. It was actually a really interesting moment in the speech and will re air it on our rumble page and we'll also put it on our podcast page where we had some adult ticket holders that came to the event on one side of the room and the students on the other side of the room. We kind of had this divide of two of them, and I said, how many people on this side of the room own property, the adults every hand goes up? I said, how many people on the other side of the room own property? None of the kids hands go up. Obviously, if you would expect, and I said, because of our lockdown policies in the last two years, it is now significantly harder for this side of the room to be able to own property, but the other side of the room that already owns property, their debt is actually less because the currency is deteriorated deteriorating, therefore it ever debt burden you have is actually relatively less because there's more dollar bills out there and your property is actually worth more. The point I was making is that for the current students and recent graduates on the one side of the room, they have been largely disenfranchised from the same sort of economic promises.

"fayetteville" Discussed on I am Northwest Arkansas
"In a story like a podcast right and you know you have to have a clear beginning middle and end well and i think one of the best pieces of advice we were given early on is. It's easy to make a podcast like you think it's difficult to get the equipment. Get a guest. Whatever it's not like comparatively what was told us was you're going to have to drag people kicking and screaming in front of the show to get anybody to listen and that is the work is growing the audience right like i put more time and effort into that than any episode record hands down. Oh absolutely no no doubt. I mean that's real talk. I do the same thing i mean. Every day i'm priming the pump damsel telling people about it. It's just like one person at a time. I get new adoptees at so funny. Because like i have people that follow me on instagram and follow me on facebook. And they've never put two and two together that this is a podcast. Oh i am northwest. Arkansas he's disguise talking about paid north west arkansas. Yeah i love it. I am northwest arkansas. Too and i'm like great. But have you know. I have a podcast now. I've been purposefully putting out post especially on instagram. I put went out the other day and this one was like. Oh my god. I had no idea you've actually had podcast. And then she responded like a couple hours later because she clearly went and listen. she's like oh. I'm hooked. I'm gonna listen more. Yes so. I'm just i'm building listenership. One per one percent time one hundred percent like totally yet. But here's the thing. I'm i mean like this. Podcast is not really the one that i created in the one that you created for the most part is pretty geo located right. Yeah some we try really hard not to but i am i one hundred percents title title so for me. It's important for me to bill. Each one person means a big deal. Oh yeah it's huge because that just means another ear that i have here in northern starnes or like i've been getting lately and i've been telling these stories more often because if you're listening to this podcast from another place and you're thinking about coming here definitely connect with us. We'd love to kind of give you the lay of the land if you will right. I've had several couples come to me and said hey we relocated here because of your podcasts. And that's that to me is really what has made it worthwhile right. You know maybe. I can figure out a way to coordinate with walmart's. Hr in tyson's hr j. b. hunt's hr to have them sponsor the show. Then maybe we can take a dole whole level because they're gonna keep bringing people here one hundred percent. Yeah but i i make. I think i feel like what we talk about. Even what we're talking about here. Now what what. I talk about journey on this show makes it easier for you to make that leap in your mind to say you know what maybe northwest. Arkansas is not that bad of a place. Yeah we'll it's not the pr packet from some large firm. Right leads real conversation with people that are here right. And i share i share real talk about. Hey you know there are some challenges here but we're getting there slowly but really and you know it is. It's what it is. But i think that's what people appreciate right. That's what people appreciated in a shoutout to some of those couples have reached out to me in. I've actually my wife. And i've gone to dinner with a few of them actually got a dinner date plan with somebody else. Another couple that That has relocated here recently. And one person in that group works for walmart. Yeah horse right yet. And the other has they. They have their own business. And so yeah. I mean it's just you know. People are coming here for a variety of different reasons. And all they wanna know is what is it gonna be like when i get here and i mean just trying to tell that story you know to whoever will listen i think is the most important thing to do yet. And the flip side is also. It's just a celebration of what's like you don't know everything that happens. North west arkansas. Even if you live here. I know one of the biggest gifts of doing. Look what i did was getting more integrated. And i think i'm relatively creative guy. But i had my circle of friends and influence or whatever right and then he started doing this show and you have to get outside that circle and it was like. Would this happens here in. That person lives here. And the shire postmen like who knew this amazing work with nasa and the smithsonian and game of thrones and lord of the rings right like. They're down the street right nuts to some insane talented people here in northwest arkansas. And the thing that. I've really liked this at everybody's always gained to chat with you. You know one hundred percent. Like when i lived down. I always tell people the stories. Like when i in boston. You know i mean the blue bloods and the folks that have been there for forever in a day since plymouth rock. They're not that open to other folks coming in. I don't care who you are what you look like. They're just not open to right. You're not connected. You're not connected. Yeah here you come here and people just kind of take you for face value. Yeah and it's just like hey you know let's let's up you know. Let's let's see what's going on not that kind of hookup but you know you know. Let's going on. And so that's the thing that i like about north west arkansas and it's one of the few places where honestly feel like i've seen that kind of connection with people. And you know i mean. I went to sona event the other night. Shout out to them. They've been on the podcast a couple of times but it was a it was great to see people Irl in real life yet Some without mask on which was great. It was just great to see smiling faces and you know just to connect with folks and folks genuinely wanted to. You know who are you. What are you doing. And all that. And i tell them about the podcast or just in general and i i just. I enjoyed that. And so. that's that's part of what i think makes us a special place. Yeah it will like. I said i worked in retail customer facing retail for twenty years in the number of people met and actually became friends with or had. Like it's just. I don't know what the deal is with north west arkansas but people just seem to be open. I mean i will say like yours my favor. I think that we're good at getting people to start talking and that right like that you know that may help us a little bit more. It's i ran into some people from new jersey because of the the baseball tournament. Going on in this league. Everybody's so like warm and welcome here and it like she's just walking around talking to people in the streets can do this now new jersey shout teaneck. But i'm gonna tell you you know you only spoke of spoken to so in the northeast and new england. It's it's even you know it's like the that's why they call them. The frozen shows up there but it's a whole different ballgame up there so there's different she is absolutely right and here. Everybody will talk to you and you just have to kind of be in that frame of mind and sometimes you're looking for the way out of the conversation go after while though you become kind of like after seven years of being here. I'm just like anesthetized to that where i'm just like you know i'm just going to have this conversation because i don't know where it's going to go and i'm just going to have it and i try to teach my kids that too. I think it's important to engage people where they are and if they want to chat with you or chat you up that you know you talk to them and yeah and learn a little bit more because You know my whole thing is always about relationships. It's all relationships and If i could connect the dots for you about how big of a difference your life can be when you embrace relationships and relationship building. I mean it's there's a difference. I would say everything. Everything in my life is because a relationship right like in one way or the other. I mean you're wise. Podcast wisely on. We have experts on the show. They know this person they like. We'd qiwei could make jewelry. She tells me about shire. Post meant that leads to write in you. Just kinda get these constant references. And i think also like there's community support their tuesday. When you're doing something new for anybody you can have this like swell of people supporting you because you've created this network of people that value those relationships right as interaction. So that's interesting so as we wind up here would love food just to kind of share a couple of couple of thoughts about north west arkansas. Since you are. Og not just an og podcast. But you've been here for about thirty years long enough to be an. Og news is. I've always tried to like stay. I'm canadian that's that's fine. Our cousins from the north but so a couple of questions real quickly. Sure where do you think podcasting headed in the next five years. I have my thoughts. But i would love to get your thoughts about that. The medium itself as a whole. I see an avenue for shorter faster. Podcasts i think as commutes maybe aren't going to be as prevalent right like i had a forty five minute drive to work a year ago that i don't have anymore and that was when i listen to podcasts. So i think there's potentially an opportunity for ten to fifteen minute podcast which would be shorter than most formats now and i'm still interested to see like the punk rock approach to it like what is the right leg like we're kind of almost elevator music to some extent right it's been around for sixteen years and so what like. What will the eighteen year old. I adopted to teach a class of eighth graders about podcasts building in right and recording in those things and just their approach to was different because there were no rules. So they're like we're doing this and this and that i was like that's an interesting approach but like somebody's going to do it so i don't know i don't know the tick talk of podcasting. You know. i think about like gary vein or chuck and how. He does his little like little rants. He'll as little rants. And they're like anywhere from two to five minutes long. And i i subscribe to them on alexa. 'cause smart speakers are proliferating for yes in of all homes in america. Have a smart speaker in that. Number's going to ride emma. Numbers going to double the next three to four years yet. And then as i always tell people search like almost fifty percents search right now is voice. That's going to be a hundred percent by twenty twenty five according to which is insane when you think that's crazy. Yeah how fast. And so it's like people will be able to say hey. Play the latest episode of. Look what i did on alexa right now. Alexa can t up any of my episodes in you know. It's not that hard. i mean. It's not rocket science. But i could also create something that or you could create something that is exclusively for alexa. Could be a skill. Yeah people were you would say you would promote it and just say hey if you're a normal star consign you've gotta smart speaker. Get the latest update to look what i did. Just find out. Just a little snippet just a little a little bit of love from your man daniel quinn and just letting me know what's coming up you know and so but those are some of the. I think those are the things that are coming up next. The other thing i would think about is like i think about podcasting relation to diy music scene in the nineties. Right in if we look at that as the same. I think what you're seeing is the high potential that the labels apple spotify like any of these companies that are willing to spend the money on the content are going to start snatching up shows in. They're going to snatch up everybody and just see what sticks. And that's what happened in the nineties with record labels in so. I think if you have the chance now to establish yourself and get like experience under your belt. If that's something really wanna do you can be the polished act right like nirvana been playing for a while. By the time. They put out in their mind. Yeah so go ahead and do that work in like do the the live shows at a local venue. If you can get all of that under the belt set by the time the labels are coming through looking for talent you've got your real rightly right. Got some back catalogue so i. I really think that's going to happen. I think we're gonna see the commercialization of it skyrocket. Absolutely i think so too. I mean we're already seeing an increase in revenue and expense for advertising empire nursing. So it's just going to grow yes gonna grow from there. So what about north west arkansas. As a whole somebody listening to this that either brand new in the area or about to come here. What would you tell them that they they have to kinda take in when they get here. North west arkansas. They should be taking advantage of right. Here it's denver with more oxygen right right similarities. Yeah you know. I just discovered the food. It moon brockhouse pacific. Are we getting. Okay specific as you want to be. This chef moon broke right now. Okay is going to get snatched up by somebody. A more exclusive restaurant right in.

It's a three story bar when you walk in like you kind of expect burger fries. Whatever i had a lemon zest did pepper corn salmon with like these perfectly cooked vegetables and then he made a banana bread pudding. That was blew my mind. And before that. I got cheesecake with a raspberry reduction in like basaltic vinaigrette. Which doesn't sound like it should go together. It was absolutely insane. The guy is in my opinion. Probably the best chef in northwest arkansas. Rain really yeah. oh man. Don't tell jason paul that. So he's have you been heirloom. I have not been need to need to go to jason's my man.

Some of the best coffee roasters in the country. Then you've got heirloom. Which is a great fantastic restaurant. And then you've got in the back there. They haven't outstanding bar. There's a little bit of everything right there in that one building. So i'm gonna have to go to. I love food i travel. I played all right. So i mean and i'm going to have to check. I'm going to have to check this brand and out and find out what's going on at moon moon by. He's one of mind right now. Yes yeah i do too. I do too. I i I was telling somebody the other day our while. We took the people that we connected with. That were relocated here. Because of the podcast we took them out to our as i should say they took us out the leverett lounge. Yeah yeah and Got the who'll guys the korean fried chicken and just i mean just everything was right. I mean what hannah has done over. There has just been nothing short of incredible. So have you been the cy walk in rogers. I have like a vietnamese kinda like street. Food okay say i w okay. Did you like bond me but they do a pork belly loaded fry. Okay blow your mind really. It's so good and it's like to be clear. Most the restaurants we have are very very good by and large right like is so it is super rare subarea go to restaurant like i am. Not going right rightly food. Here is really really good. Amazing chefs from all over the place. Absolutely and the other thing. I would say like. There's arts there right. There's crystal bridges. I hadn't been there. I went want sounds like Blake how am i not bingo. It's absolutely mind blowing. But you've gotta get outside and check the buffalo national river white rock float the white river lake. There's just you get it all. Yeah get it. All on the commute's not bad friendly people low crime like just really low cost of living. Compared to the rest of the country harass skyrocketing. For here it's ask. What can you get for four beds three and a half baths. I'm like everything still under four fifty and unlike what they use their mind than. I'm like yeah you can still get something really nice. Even where you live is i mean. It's just really nice but you know we had the folks from the urban land institute on it. And i really want to encourage folks that there's still a lot of room for infil growth so we have. We have room to spare. It's now we're kind of. It's not like boston right. Where like they're not growing any more land and we're on top of each other. Yeah we've still got room for growth and so as long as we do it in a positive way and in a way that really takes the environment into consideration at the same time you know creates a a good type of population density. I think we'll be fine in a few follow like walmart right now. I don't know how much the headquarters changed since cova but there's a huge lake planned in that. Yeah headquarters area. There's massive park area. Greenway goes to their trees outdoor cafes like to your point northwest. Arkansas is watch a very fine balance of growing rapidly and maintaining a significant amount of the greenery and natural right and as long as we can keep walking that line. You really do get to the best. Both worlds yeah so yeah absolutely now without a doubt man so well listen if people want connect with you. What's the best way they can decide subscribing.

"All that to say that People need to learn about the pot learn about the industry about what podcasting really is And understand that you know it is. You're right it is not something that you can kind of casually people think. Oh i can talk. So i can just on a mike and i'm like okay but some people can't talk and chew gum at the same time when when it comes to delivering the goods and thinking about where are you trying to take in a conversation or were you trying to take somebody in a story like a podcast right and you know you have to have a clear beginning middle and end well and i think one of the best pieces of advice we were given early on is. It's easy to make a podcast like you think it's difficult to get the equipment. Get a guest. Whatever it's not like comparatively what was told us was you're going to have to drag people kicking and screaming in front of the show to get anybody to listen and that is the work is growing the audience right like i put more time and effort into that than any episode record hands down. Oh absolutely no no doubt. I mean that's real talk. I do the same thing i mean. Every day i'm priming the pump damsel telling people about it. It's just like one person at a time. I get new adoptees at so funny. Because like i have people that follow me on instagram and follow me on facebook. And they've never put two and two together that this is a podcast. Oh i am northwest. Arkansas he's disguise talking about paid north west arkansas. Yeah i love it. I am northwest arkansas. Too and i'm like great. But have you know. I have a podcast now. I've been purposefully putting out post especially on instagram. I put went out the other day and this one was like. Oh my god. I had no idea you've actually had podcast. And then she responded like a couple hours later because she clearly went and listen. she's like oh. I'm hooked. I'm gonna listen more. Yes so. I'm just i'm building listenership. One per one percent time one hundred percent like totally yet. But here's the thing. I'm i mean like this. Podcast is not really the one that i created in the one that you created for the most part is pretty geo located right. Yeah some we try really hard not to but i am i one hundred percents title title so for me. It's important for me to bill. Each one person means a big deal. Oh yeah it's huge because that just means another ear that i have here in northern starnes or like i've been getting lately and i've been telling these stories more often because if you're listening to this podcast from another place and you're thinking about coming here definitely connect with us. We'd love to kind of give you the lay of the land if you will right. I've had several couples come to me and said hey we relocated here because of your podcasts. And that's that to me is really what has made it worthwhile right. You know maybe. I can figure out a way to coordinate with walmart's. Hr in tyson's hr j. b. hunt's hr to have them sponsor the show. Then maybe we can take a dole whole level because they're gonna keep bringing people here one hundred percent. Yeah but i i make. I think i feel like what we talk about. Even what we're talking about here. Now what what. I talk about journey on this show makes it easier for you to make that leap in your mind to say you know what maybe northwest. Arkansas is not that bad of a place. Yeah we'll it's not the pr packet from some large firm. Right leads real conversation with people that are here right. And i share i share real talk about. Hey you know there are some challenges here but we're getting there slowly but really and you know it is. It's what it is. But i think that's what people appreciate right. That's what people appreciated in a shoutout to some of those couples have reached out to me in. I've actually my wife. And i've gone to dinner with a few of them actually got a dinner date plan with somebody else. Another couple that That has relocated here recently. And one person in that group works for walmart. Yeah horse right yet. And the other has they. They have their own business. And so yeah. I mean it's just you know. People are coming here for a variety of different reasons. And all they wanna know is what is it gonna be like when i get here and i mean just trying to tell that story you know to whoever will listen i think is the most important thing to do yet. And the flip side is also. It's just a celebration of what's like you don't know everything that happens. North west arkansas. Even if you live here. I know one of the biggest gifts of doing. Look what i did was getting more integrated. And i think i'm relatively creative guy. But i had my circle of friends and influence or whatever right and then he started doing this show and you have to get outside that circle and it was like. Would this happens here in. That person lives here. And the shire postmen like who knew this amazing work with nasa and the smithsonian and game of thrones and lord of the rings right like. They're down the street right nuts to some insane talented people here in northwest arkansas. And the thing that. I've really liked this at everybody's always gained to chat with you. You know one hundred percent. Like when i lived down. I always tell people the stories. Like when i in boston. You know i mean the blue bloods and the folks that have been there for forever in a day since plymouth rock. They're not that open to other folks coming in. I don't care who you are what you look like. They're just not open to right. You're not connected. You're not connected. Yeah here you come here and people just kind of take you for face value. Yeah and it's just like hey you know let's let's up you know. Let's let's see what's going on not that kind of hookup but you know you know. Let's going on. And so that's the thing that i like about north west arkansas and it's one of the few places where honestly feel like i've seen that kind of connection with people. And you know i mean. I went to sona event the other night. Shout out to them. They've been on the podcast a couple of times but it was a it was great to see people Irl in real life yet Some without mask on which was great. It was just great to see smiling faces and you know just to connect with folks and folks genuinely wanted to. You know who are you. What are you doing. And all that. And i tell them about the podcast or just in general and i i just. I enjoyed that. And so. that's that's part of what i think makes us a special place. Yeah it will like. I said i worked in retail customer facing retail for twenty years in the number of people met and actually became friends with or had. Like it's just. I don't know what the deal is with north west arkansas but people just seem to be open. I mean i will say like yours my favor. I think that we're good at getting people to start talking and that right like that you know that may help us a little bit more. It's i ran into some people from new jersey because of the the baseball tournament. Going on in this league. Everybody's so like warm and welcome here and it like she's just walking around talking to people in the streets can do this now new jersey shout teaneck. But i'm gonna tell you you know you only spoke of spoken to so in the northeast and new england. It's it's even you know it's like the that's why they call them. The frozen shows up there but it's a whole different ballgame up there so there's different she is absolutely right and here. Everybody will talk to you and you just have to kind of be in that frame of mind and sometimes you're looking for the way out of the conversation go after while though you become kind of like after seven years of being here. I'm just like anesthetized to that where i'm just like you know i'm just going to have this conversation because i don't know where it's going to go and i'm just going to have it and i try to teach my kids that too. I think it's important to engage people where they are and if they want to chat with you or chat you up that you know you talk to them and yeah and learn a little bit more because You know my whole thing is always about relationships. It's all relationships and If i could connect the dots for you about how big of a difference your life can be when you embrace relationships and relationship building..

"Giant chunk of And then you have like co-host or conversation dialogue type podcast right in. I think all those fiction and probably has the most room to grow because it has a lot of latitude in it but the other two really have kind of like found. I think their their balance like they kind of are what they are in. I just imagined there's going to be people that think about podcasting in a different way right like we had television theatre growing up in all send you youtube and it makes you think about visual in an entirely different way and anybody can access it and so i was kind of joking around like i'm just waiting for the person that does podcast where they wake up everyday and do a five minute podcast. The first five minutes they wake up. That's the show. I think that's a terrible deal. Probably but you're gonna have some that's gonna look at this in a totally different way in in use it differently. It's of electric guitar right. Like you're just going to bend the strings in uses slide and gonna start changing the sounds that can come out of this so think podcasting is still really young but i think the great thing about it is. It's super accessible. Unlike video we were talking about video. Like you need good lighting. You need probably multiple cameras or a lot of time to set up different. Takes and we're working on doing a potentially documentary in a year for a different thing altogether and just the amount of like prep goes into that conversation that goes into that the financing of it. It's just you hand. Do it on an iphone and i would say if that's what you wanna do. Go do it go. Do whatever equipment have and start learning. But i think to get it's a visual medium and you've got to think that way in and you need to tell a story with fewer words because you're using visual medium. I think you need to think about sound design when you are doing because a lot of times like we're cameras for good shot versus where the sound is happening or not. The same locations see may have sound equipment now added into that pictures have made official links with some friends. I'm done a lot of video where quick. It's different and it's more complicated. There's more moving pieces. A podcast is simple. Because i can literally take my phone and set it on the table and just press record in unite can talk. I can talk to it right. Or i can tell a radio play when i was like nine years old. I got the dickens. Christmas carol and just sat and like recorded into tape recorder all of the parts of christmas carol my own sound effects and stuff like i think it's always been in my bones to do this thing and i played in bands for a long time so i understood kinda like microphone placement and like equipment that was needed and those types of things and then i worked in retail for twenty years so my job was to talk to people like make you feel like i know you almost from the get go right and so you have all this experience of like generating conversation out of nothing and so pieces come together but i think podcasting like i think everybody has a story to tell or unique perspective and podcasting is really low bar entry to do that and i think is a good experience for a variety of reasons. You have social media attached to it. You have potentially website building attached to it you have networking attached to it. I mean i guess you can sit in a room and just talk to your phone. Do none of those things where you're probably not going to do it for very long right right and so if you're gonna take it seriously think it starts to grow into something bigger and it's very low skin in the game right. I think that being said. I think it's way tougher than people think. I think a lot of times. Like oh i make my friends laugh. So i'm going to sit down and do a humor podcast. And then you get there and it's like have you ever tried to stand up layup. It's not the same thing the same thing in you like you. Maybe are copping. Something that you've heard so i always challenged people like you can talk about northwest arkansas or creative. You and i have podcasts. That like have a van diagram. Crossover riley with two very different perspectives. And i think voices about what we're doing in in the way we're packaging is different. Years is thirty minutes minds. An hour right like conversations are gonna be different your little more business focused. I'm like a little more like kind of arts. Little more like angled that way but like we pick up businesses and you pick up arts like crossover. Yeah but what we're talking about like we have our own way of approaching it in. So i think like when you're thinking about a subject matter like what do you wish somebody was talking about. That isn't being talked about that. You know something about or want to learn about right. I don't know anything about a lot of the people that we talk to you. But part of the show is like learning right. Yeah and then. What's your take on. What's new what's different that you're gonna do. But i think people are one of the things you ask of talk for a long time is the podcast scene longevity and so i think people get the idea of doing a podcast because it's simple and they launch into it in all of a sudden. They realized that they only had one store intel right. You'll have that first album to tell and then after that it's like i don't know what i'm doing. Yeah and you have a long term game plan. I think you do need to treat it like a business. I check my metrics every day. I talked to people that are in business in got business consultation. We built a website before we ever had a show. We right likley map. Those things out seriously and i think also like reach out and ask for support because it is tough and i think if i reached out to you when i heard about your show. Km doing this. You know like network of of podcast in just having that communication like that got you and i talking about podcasts. And like doing these interviews later. In i need to get back on. The voice press network is voice dot com. If you wanna see other cool podcast that have been on for a long time but to your point. It's difficult to find people that do it for longer than eight episodes right. Yeah i think people realize i mean pod fade is a real thing and so i tell people all the time. 'cause they're like yeah. I'm gonna get a podcast on mike while slow your roll. But he let's just. Let's just talk about this and walking through. I wanna see start one. But i also wanna see you continue to do one and not you know by the wayside because a lot of people don't realize about some of the statistics so over the last year we saw our numbers go. We finally hit a million podcast shows in twenty twenty april twenty twenty april of twenty twenty. One we hit almost one point nine five million so we almost donald at his is. It took a sixteen years to get from zero to a million podcast shows right. It took us all of twenty two double. So we're gonna continue to grow but what people don't realize is that only about i think the number somewhere between like two seventy five and four hundred thousand of those are active right okay. That means that they're actually doing something like you. And i were writing episodes on a regular basis. Some people have a show they did like eleven episodes. And it's just that that's just it but some shows set up like that. I mean it's like a bbc limited series it for eight episodes done. Yeah i just listened to a true crime thing that discover plus put out because they see the value of marrying the context of some of these true crime stories in video format but also an audio format. Yeah i did one on the list chiller which is the long island serial killer. Which still has he still had here. Who she or. Whoever's doing it still hasn't been caught but they've got a lot of bodies attached to them in. It's really intriguing. Story of injury of bad cops bad attorneys the whole nine yards and i binged that in like a heartbeat like i was done. I like consume that like in two days. It was done just the same way that i consumed mayor of east town on age. Max so you know it just like but it's it's a different medium yet. So i.

"Population race. Here i think one hundred percent in because then you know walmart seems invested in like retaining talent here as well right and so they've invested all this money in infrastructure. Justin like you know things you can do restaurants in the rope swing group right the different anything else. that's here. he really really cool stuff. Because you wanna draw on that austin or san francisco talent in right like make this a place where people want to stick around and then all those vendors are creating jobs for local people as well and so. It's not all just outside. Like i think everybody's like i said i've been here for thirty years and like the benefit comes to me in some way right hand so yeah absolutely. It's a great area. It is i mean like i said. I'm looking at my kids now. They're getting involved with mountain biking. We hear where you're kind of like. I don't know if we're technically a mountain bike capital but we wanna be mountain bike capital which i think is a big deal in my understanding is we have the number one mountain biking trail in the world. Oh is that the case. Maybe not the world. But it's the country for sure. Okay all right lance armstrong trains here now for his stuff. Okay we interviewed on. Look what. I did a guy who's a bike mechanic. Okay and i had no idea sir talking about all this stuff. I was like what is happening. They were in seattle for some big convention. And everybody's talking about like i forget. The name has some crazy. Name like dragons. I don't remember this trail is like the the true mountain bike trail. It's dumb mecca. The place to go to listen. I was talking to a friend and she said that. A bunch of african american mountain bikers from around the country descended on bentonville a couple of weeks ago and like forty or fifty of them. Which you know fifteen twenty years ago that would have been unheard of. They all descended here because they heard that this is some of the best trails and they absolutely love it and want to come back and then a professional biker. His name's roussin body and He is He came here in spoke recently for a bike. Pock event affiliated with bike. Nwea during bike monk in may. So if you if you if you if you're traveling thing what's gonna throw in pedal it forward to me because that's a whole nother group. That was part of this and they they were there but anyway he was telling me how excited he was to be a part of what's happening with the movement of of mountain biking here and just ethnicity inclusivity of it there. Johnny get everybody involved. Dad the women on from arkansas latina's in dc. Which is latin next group of women that like to ride their bikes right and they want to do it in a group setting and now they go out and they've got a huge following so if you see a bunch of ladies with pink cycling jerseys on the trail. That's probably arkansas latina's nbc. So let's goal so shout out to them. And i mean that's kind of what we're seeing here. Yeah right and that started somewhere in. Now look where we are. I think north as arkansas is not that there's not room for improvement has done a good job of inclusivity. From the beginning. I think failed drove. I think i live here at the. You know the university. And some of those things i think like. It's always had that kind of like art. Hippy kind of vibe to write like fable has a very good music scene and really good art scene. And i think in general. It's always felt like a more collaborative area in northwest arkansas. Twos that it does feel from my limited perspective. He tries hard to be inclusive to everybody. Make everybody feel welcome. Yarrow's where they're from or what they're doing or whatever you know absolutely yeah and i think you know it was funny. My wife and i were talking about it on our hot wath this morning that we said yeah you know each town has its own unique perspectives yet but because we are so close together you know you can kind of bunch in bentonville rogers springdale in bill into one collective community. It's a metro area. It is a metro yet. But it's not like so spread out. Where oh my god. I don't know if i can you know just like houston where you talk about the woodland's or something like that and you're like man. That's all way across town. It's like i can get to bentonville fifteen minutes and you know. I can go up there and do what i need to do. And we've got certain traffic arteries that can get us back and forth in quick will need to expand those of course as the population grows. 'cause i'm sure. At some point. People will be cursing on forty nine because of the traffic right because it just will deal out drive. I think people curse on it. Now i read to me. Listen you're talking to somebody that lived in the bay area and was just relocated here from boston. Listen nobody knows a traffic know. And so it's all relative. But i could see how people would be a little upset but yeah i mean twenty years ago right like you could get to rogers bend villain fifteen minutes from here in but nobody did it either because every community felt very like silo decided to sell them and that's before forty nine came into play for the way. Yeah before the greenway. And like now. I just i get frustrated. Sometimes i'm forty nine reich traffic since it's not compared to other places i've been at all but like in perspective what you grew up with what you knew. It's like this is so much worse than it was but it really is not. It's not houston right. Or i'm sure san francisco in german through san francisco yet did once. Yes definitely not. As bad as i ask you wanna wine or going across the bay. Bridget's pretty fierce. It is more than more than a notion. that's a fair share with my driving in l. a. and that's it is definitely way way better there. Yes but anyway this is this is not a show about traffic com comparisons but But but yeah. I think anybody coming here. If you're thinking about coming here just know that whatever it just take into consideration any of your worst traffic experiences it pales. You won't experience that here. Absolutely that's the case. Yeah and that's really only getting from city to city like with any of those spots right. Getting around them is super easy. And i'm saying like just don't drive at eight. Am or five pm. The rest of the timer. Good yeah. there's no problems at all totally on a percent so before we started talking we kinda talked about. Just the growth of podcasting really. Yeah i guess. I can count riff about podcasting with you so this a meta conversation day. Okay i cast about podcast. I like it so but tell me in your mind. What has podcasting opened up for you. Because i'm constantly encouraging people to either start a podcast and i'm telling businesses. Hey you need to consider extending your brand through storytelling. Right and in through through podcasting. In like i'll i wanna do videos and we were talking earlier about how videos are not quite the same right at all at all and so i would love just to kinda share your thoughts on podcasting as a whole the medium of what it means to you but then also what you think it represents i know i have my ideas about it what it represents today and also what i think it's going to be in the future. But what are your thoughts. So i think podcasting is it's still in its infancy and a lot of ways right and i had this conversation longer with somebody like you. I feel you kind of have three distinct. Podcast formats right. You have fiction. Which.

"Studio that often do you use them in. A studio is great. Sometimes it is artificially quite in studio and actually was working with a potential client. And they were like. I'd really love to do this at my house. And i said listen. If you show me your place. I'm sure we can make it work. And with the right microphones in the right equipment. You can do a lot with a little yet. It's really not that difficult. I think once people understand it. You know. I mean if you're in a room full of glass and and solid floors and no carpeting or anything like that literally the room. We're in right the second right. But but but i have directional mic on. And it's it's very clear. These mics are not set up to pick up noise outside of that were in directional. So you as long as you have that you're actually okay. Yeah most people don't realize that. So you get people. Like if i had a condenser mic right now. This would be a hot mess. Oh no it would be one so you're standing in front of glass. I'm sitting in front of new york. Good so no. But that's that's all good so so tell me man. I'd love you to just share with the i nosed arkansas audience. A little bit about yourself. Tell us your superhero origin. Story and y y. You came up with. Look what i did. Yes so. I've lived in northwest arkansas. On and off since the early nineties born in canada grew up in wisconsin. Came down here. When i was about ten eleven years old and i really love this area. Right it's just it's beautiful. It's very outdoors friendly and then is just continued to grow and grow. When i first moved here is all uvais was kind of the magnet that drew people northwest. And of course you had walmart and tyson in j. b. hunt those companies were here but they didn't have the impact on the area didn't seem like the way they do over the last fifteen twenty years right and walmart in the early two thousands made that mandate that if if you sold product with them you had to have a vendor presence here in so all the sudden you just had a huge influx. I think the number was something like five hundred families among moving in which is a pretty big number when you're like town populations probably sixty five thousand at that point right so it just over the last twenty years. It just really blossomed in a. I've lived in other places. I lived in albuquerque for awhile. It'd be memphis for awhile. Florida for a day. That's weird story. But you know i just find myself constant coming back to here because it really like. There's a lot of opportunity here. And there's i think like i said i can go float the white in fifteen minutes right at congrats kayak and go float the white river. But i can also catch a broadway play or eat. You know with a beard award winning chef at a restaurant downtown bentonville rogers or wherever and so. There's just a lot to do. And then i think even more importantly for me. I grew up in just an environment that we were around a lot of different cultures people in northwest. Arkansas actually has a nice blend of people like maybe fifty percent people from here but everybody else else's from california and chicago and all england right like new york. Whatever in so you cross passages really interesting people all the time then. As far as the show like i. I grew up playing in a band. I did theater. I had a public access television. Show for a while like i. I like performing being the center of attention. Wayne's world one hundred percent. And so. I discovered podcast really late. I was probably over thirty years old and i just remembered listening to it and i was like i could do this. Like this. is really a doable thing. But i don't know what it would be. And i had a cigar night. I still have a cigar. Every monday night we get together in someone who was like we should record these so we recorded one night and i will never air that for anybody. Like don't record your friends hanging out so the guards and drinking. It's a bad idea but that idea didn't work. It didn't make sense in so a couple years went by. And i moved here and i've got a good sized garage and turned into full woodshop and i was like man that could make like youtube videos here. Something and i discovered the podcast. Making it with jimmy esta. Bob clagget david petito in. It's just these three guys talking about what they build and what they do and i was like man aaron. I could do that but nobody cares. What we nobody's going to tune in to two guys. You never heard of talking about building boxes in a garage or whatever we're doing right into it. Suddenly him one day it was like i know a bunch of people that do creative stuff though and saul. Call some of them if they'd be willing to be interviewed for a show and then we're bringing in people that know them. You know we kind of build this thing and The first percent called was alan newbury. Who won forced him fire and he was willing to do it A good friend of mine in that just kind of kicked it off. And then from there what i was saying about just like the people that are not from here. That have moved here. Come through all the time for various reasons. A lot of ask like where guests come from but they have you know they grow up here. They're doing business here with walmart or or some other company or whatever's happening in so you just have a ton. Traffic through in the other thing is financially lake. Northwest arkansas. Pretty well off as a whole tour in so creativity really is funded by people with extra money to spend right and they can buy expensive candles or paintings or jewelry and you have people are able to make a living off of their creative pursuits in. So we have nonstop supply of creative people to talk to you know my god and and then you add to people like alice. Walton richest woman in the world. His passion is art. Yeah an art in crystal bring crystal. Bridges is amazing road. Now is doing that. The room that they're doing there for speaking engagements in they're to have like a podcast to you type thing or a studio of some kind there. Oh man that's going to be cool.

Where all you need is a library card and not only do you have access to all of that. Are all of those utilities. But then you also have access to equipment. Yeah so. I mean it's it's just it's it's i always say it's it's an embarrassment of riches that we have here in our own backyard. Yeah you know we. I mean the natural state right because we have all these natural resources. But we've managed to accumulate all these kind of technology in networking resources as well in north of really kinda has just about everything. Yeah yeah i mean it like for me. I mean my friends all the time. Like what are you doing in arkansas. And i'm like dude. I'm in northwest. Arkansas always qualify that. I said i'm in north west arkansas. No that's no shade on the delta or central arkansas. Or whatever and i gotta be honest. I don't think if i wouldn't live any other place but writing star concern. I mean just i mean it's just i'm just keeping it real. That's why the podcast is called. Im north arkansas right. Yeah no absolutely. But i mean it's it's this state is coming up and and make no mistake about it north west. Arkansas just happens to be the nexus of everything that's happening. Even if our state capital is in the center of the state. I mean a lot of what happens happens up here and it trickles down to the rest of the state and everybody benefits from it. But i mean it's it's just it's just something that makes us place special and it's because you had someone with the vision like sam walton in everybody else that because even that decision to cause the vendors to stay here i have friends that own a company in san francisco and they have outfit outpost here. So it's like everybody's like yeah you want to do. Business with walton with sam walton in walmart. You've got to come here and be year. You can't just you know. I've always been curious to know whether like target has any type of mandate a requirement for people to come the minnesota. I would be like man that would become hard especially in the wintertime. I'd be like. I don't know if i want to put an office in somewhere in the twin cities but you know i guess if i if i had to be in target then maybe that would be my option and walmart.

"Long before his house burned down any lost five of his children. George solder saw the united states as a land of opportunity or at least of escape he was born as georgios saw do on the italian island of sardinia in eighteen ninety five. He spent the first thirteen years of his life. They're growing up in a small town on a hill. Not much is known about his youth mainly because he refused to speak about it. It was obvious to those who knew him. Later that something happened in italy that made young giorgio want to leave in one thousand nine hundred eight. He sees the chance to escape his home. Country in boarded a steamship with his older brother headed to ellis island Because we don't know his brother's name will call him. Rafael georgia was thirteen years old when he and rafael saw the statue of liberty and new york city skyline for the first time but whatever excitement. The new land may have inspired in giorgio. His brother didn't seem to share it for reasons. Unknown rafael return to italy immediately after delivering his younger brother to the immigrant inspection station. Perhaps he was only tasked with delivering giorgio safely to america. Maybe he was just along for the ride. It could have been any number of reasons he could have been turned away from. Ellis island for criminality or disease. Regardless when thirteen year old giorgio emerged from ellis island. He had a new anglicized name. George solder he was alone in a brand new country for better and for worse. His new life in america began that day in nineteen eight and he quickly got to work. George didn't stay in new york state for very long instead. He headed west to pennsylvania in order to find opportunities there and find them he did. It took a few years but before long. He left a railroad job in pennsylvania for west virginia and worked his way up through the hauling industry to open his own trucking company. But that wasn't all he wanted out of life in the early nineteen twenties. George met jenny. Cheaper yanni jenny. Like george was also an italian immigrant but unlike him she moved to the united states when she was just three and couldn't remember much of her life in italy. It didn't matter though the two had plenty in common and hit it off right away. They fell in love and soon enough. They got married ready to start a family. They moved to nearby fayetteville west virginia. Their new town was nestled in the foothills of the appalachian mountains and was home to a small but tight knit community of other italian immigrants. Over the next twenty years they became respected members of the fayetteville community their neighbors view george as a successful local businessman and jenny was known as carrying housewife who adored her ten children but a mystery lingered at the heart of this solder family and it involves georgia's past or rather the lack of it. Everyone and their italian american community new. The georgia emigrated to the states. Just like many of them. Andy may have had his secrets but he certainly wasn't shy about his political opinions during the nineteen twenties and thirties. Italy's fascist prime minister benito. Mussolini expanded his power and allied with the nazis in world war. Two during this time. George made it known that he despised the dictator. He sometimes got into passionate arguments with other italians who supported mussolini and reportedly expressed relief when he heard the dictator had been killed in the spring of nineteen forty-five but even still george was reticent to talk about his past however it seemed the community. Opt to let these quirks go. They were fond of the families. Many children the solders had ten kids. Understandably they ranged quite a bit in age. By nineteen forty-five their oldest. John was twenty three years old. While the youngest sylvia was to the family was large an by all accounts. Happy and christmas eve. Nineteen forty five was no exception. That is until a fire changed their lives forever. By the time the sun rose in the morning half of their children would be on

"Which applied to mafia members. And those who dealt with them. The fact that george never talked about his past suggests he might have been bound by a similar restriction. The mafia were very active in sicily in the late eighteen hundreds and early nineteen hundreds. And it's possible that george ran across them when he was a boy. If so that in encounter might have led him to fleeing to the united states. It could also have been why rafael felt like he had to return to their home country. Whatever secrets is childhood held. George spent the nineteen twenties thirties and forties raising his family in fayetteville west virginia but apparently he couldn't escape his past. George frequently argued with the other members of the towns italian-american community usually about a benito mussolini george despise the man and this put him in conflict with other immigrants who supported the fascist prime minister. It's possible that one of georgia's friends or neighbors belong to the american mafia after all by the nineteen twenty s. Many italian mobsters had immigrated to the united states so when george debated italian politics with the locals he could have made a very dangerous enemy without realizing it in nineteen forty-five five maybe the organization felt like they'd had enough of georgia's anti mussalini statements and retaliated by taking his children. Well it's true that the mafia didn't usually perform kidnappings it wasn't totally unheard of one of the most famous examples was the nineteen seventy-three abduction of oil fortune heir. John paul getty the third in the nineteen seventies. The getty family was as famous for their oil well as they were for their infighting. The patriarch j paul. Getty was a notoriously. Difficult man frugal. To the point of pathology. He had payphones installed in his english manor home. So his staff wouldn't add to his phone bill understandably. He didn't get along very well with his grandson john. Paul getty the third who went by paul. Abo- hime ian teenager who being kicked out of his italian prep school for clarity. From huron will refer to j paul getty as getty and his grandson will be paul. Paul kept a low profile to avoid his grandfather's vitriol but that all changed when he suddenly disappeared in rome soon after his worried family received a series of letters and a phone call from the kidnappers. They said they were members of the mafia and they demanded a ransom of seventeen million dollars for polls safe return but getty said that he had fourteen grandchildren besides john and if he gave them a sent it would only encourage similar opportunists to go after them for that reason. Getty refused to pay in response. The mafia cutoff polls ear and mailed it to a newspaper with their demands. Eventually the family paid the mafia three million dollars though getty himself only paid two point two million the maximum amount that he could write off as a loss for tax purposes. And by the end of nineteen seventy-three. Paul was back within the family. Fold though much the worse for wear. This wasn't the only time. The mafia used kidnapping as tactic in rome. In nineteen seventy five. The criminal organization kidnapped gianni bulgari a famous italian. Who was forty years old at the time. His affluent family quickly paid two million dollars for his return and he emerged relatively unscathed by the ordeal. However the solders were decidedly not wealthy. So it seems unlikely that the mob would have kidnapped their children for money. What's more george and jenny never received a ransom note. That said it is possible that the criminal society could have murdered the solder children in retaliation for something. George did the mafia's. Arcane codes supposedly protect women and young children but they don't always abide by these values take for example the case of giuseppe di matteo in one thousand nine hundred ninety three santino di matteo a former member of the sicilian. Mafia was preparing to testify against them in court in a bid to silence him. The mob kidnapped his twelve year. Old son giuseppi.
As sea levels rise, water creeps up beneath peoples feet
"As the climate warms coastal waters rising. Not only along the shore but beneath people's feet the storms in the waves and sea level rise are going to affect the surface water.

ByteDance Says It Won. Trump Says Not So Fast. TikTok Continues For Now.
"Okay, here's what I can tell you. You can still use tiktok as of this moment president trump since we last spoke said he approved Oracle's bid for the US. Operations of tiktok quote in concept, and so essentially the US delayed the planned tick tock band by about a week as Oracle Walmart looked to take a twenty percent stake in Tiktok globals planned pre IPO round as well as of course, the deals to host talks us user data and computer systems quoting Bloomberg I approve the deal and concept trump told reporters Saturday as he left the White House for a campaign rally in Fayetteville north. Carolina if they get. It done. That's great. If they don't, that's okay too and quote the new company which will be called tiktok global has agreed to funnel five billion dollars in new tax dollars to the US and set up a new education fund which trump said would satisfy his demand that the government receive a payment from the deal quote they're going to be setting up a very large fund. He said that's their contribution that I've been asking for an quote Oracle plans to take a twelve point, five percent stake in the new tiktok level. While Walmart said, it has tentatively agreed to by seven point, five percent of the entity. Walmart's. Officer Doug Macmillan will serve on tiktok global's board of directors. The retailer said in a statement for of the five board seats will be filled by Americans according to the statement tic TACs. Owner Bite dance is seeking evaluation of sixty billion dollars for the APP, according to a person familiar with the matter Oracle and Walmart would pay a combined twelve billion dollars for their stakes. If they agreed to that asking price, the final valuation has not been set as the party's worked out the equity structure and measures data security. The person said terms are still in flux and the proposed valuation could still change and quote. Yet more about that flex in a second but more about that five billion dollar payment to the government. The president mentioned I. Guess That's the key money by another name that he was asking for all along except that seems to have come as news to at least most of the parties involved Oracle later confirmed it to a degree but quoting Dan primack on twitter. More about tiktok quote Payments Number One the Education Fund is not to fun trump's patriotic history project number two, the five billion dollar figure is not codified anywhere and no one expects it to be anywhere near that big number three, the five billion dollars to the Treasury is anticipated payroll taxes over an unspecified period. Of Time, there will be an education focused effort using tick tock short video format distribution tool, but there is no dollar amount tied to it with trump seeming to inflate the payroll tax figure with the Education Fund remember Tick Tock doesn't have five billion dollars at least not until its IPO wants to complete within twelve months and quote. So. Again has this all been Kabuki theatre make the president think he's getting his key money. Give a politically connected firm, a sweetheart deal, and even if the five billion dollars is really not going to be five billion dollars again, we have the president of the government forcing the investment of private property, giving it to favourite entity and essentially asking for a kickback exactly. What happens in Banana Republics Super? Oh and about that whole thing being inflex bite dance. This morning was asserting that it is maintaining majority ownership and control over tick tock global and will not transfer any source code or technology to Oracle or Walmart so essentially waving a flag saying they won. Quoting the Financial Times bite that set on money that it would maintain majority ownership and control of tiktok global contradicting statements by Donald trump oracle, and Walmart after it agreed a deal with the companies to continue operating in the US Oracle, the US technology group, and Walmart, the world's biggest bricks and mortar retailer said in a joint statement at the weekend that Tiktok level would be majority owned by American investors and quote however while they're state combined with the equity held by. Long standing US investors by dance might mean, American investors would be the biggest financial beneficiaries, direct majority ownership and control of the business is set to remain with the Chinese company in a statement released on January tat chow by dances Chinese social media platform. The company said tiktok global would be a quote one, hundred percent fully owned subsidiary. The company added that after raising funds ahead of a potential initial public offering, it would have an eighty percent stake in the company and quote. So maybe that wasn't a good thing to go spouting off about because this either means now the deal is really off. Because the Chinese side really doesn't want it or else the deal is off because the president isn't going to be pleased about that more in just one second or else everyone is just GonNa declare victory and. Meaningful has actually changed my money's on that but hard to tell at this point because to conclude. About thirty minutes ago. President trump. said, he would not approve a tick tock deal bite dance ceded control, and well I don't know.
