"San Francisco has won a ruling against Walgreens in the opioid crisis I'm Lisa dwyer with the latest A federal judge has ruled the Walgreens can be held responsible for contributing to San Francisco's opioid crisis for over dispensing opioids for years without proper oversight and failing to identify and report suspicious orders which is required by law The city of San Francisco says the pharmacy chain continually violated what they were required to do under the federal controlled substances act by failing to track opioid prescriptions and fail to see the many red flags of physicians and others who were dramatically overprescribing a U.S. district judge has ruled that for 15 years Walgreens dispensed hundreds of thousands of pills eventually contributing to the city's hospitals being overwhelmed with opioid patients Walgreens said it will appeal the ruling which

Pelosi to March Democrats Off Cliff With Inflation Bill Vote
"If we go back and again, you're a PhD. So you may not know much about the Declaration of Independence. But in the Declaration of Independence, there's the glorious language we know, but then Jefferson laid out what is an actual indictment of George the third. One of the particulars is they have sent out armies of officials to eat up our wealth. And that I just think 87,000 IRS agent. So your friends who are Democrats. And I know you've got some friends who are Democrat. I was talking to one last night. My college roommate, a longtime democratic friend saying, you know, Democrats are bent on self destruct, Elaine luria can not win reelection. Having cut the defense budget by inflation alone and having 87,000 IRS agents, she got a vote for that this week. Every Democrat in a tough district is being forced to vote on the IRS expansion act. Will any of them defect well because they did this for Henry waxman ten years ago. They voted for his idiotic climate bill then and now they're going to vote for climate bill that helps people in our income bracket by EVs. Do you think they're actually going to do that 9 weeks before an election? Pelosi seems to be marching them off the cliff right now. And even the New York Democrats and the other salt state Democrats who drew a line in the sand and said, we're not going to vote. Would you explain that? Again, we got steelers fans listening and they're not on peyote. So you could explain salt. Salt states. The state and local income tax state and local tax deduction, something we capped or effectively got rid of depending on what state you live in in the tax cuts and job with the intent of stopping the subsidization of high tax progressive states. Obviously all the members from high tax progressive states objected to that. And so they said, well, we want to eliminate that provision, go back to the status quo pre-tax cuts and jobs act. But even the moderate members who drew that line in the sand have now caved a speaker Pelosi. So with the possible exception of maybe Jared golden, I think she's going to have all her members vote for this. Come Friday,
New Virus Emerges in China
"Glory, America, bonjour, high candidate who Hewitt, it's the tenth day of August in the year of our lord 2022 I'm at studio north Winterfell. And I hate to be the first to tell you, but there's a new virus in China. And I've been reading The Guardian story in the Bloomberg story on it this morning. It's called lab V, levy, LA, capital B lavy virus, which is short for longyear, hit up a virus. First, detected in the northeastern provinces of the Chinese communist government state, there are between, well, there dozens of cases. No report yet on human to human transmission, no report yet on lethality. But why wouldn't he believe anything in Chinese Communist Party tells us anyway? I don't. You don't. All I know is if it's big enough to make it to The Guardian and Bloomberg. Nearly three dozen people in China have been sickened by a newly identified virus from the same family as the deadly nipah and hendra viruses, though there is no evidence that pathogen can be transmitted from person to person.

Alex Jones Discusses Being Patient Zero of Cancellations
"Alex, you were banned in one day, talk about this. Apple iCloud, Facebook, Twitter, Google. It was simultaneous. There was collusion and it was you first and they went after all of us afterwards. How do you keep going? What's the lesson for the everyday American that gets canceled? Those Alex Jones first and they went after Donald Trump. It's Alex Jones first and they raid Mar-a-Lago. Like you said, your patient zero, what keeps you going, what's your advice for the everyday American? Well, it's actually the four year anniversary yesterday. It was August 8th, 2018. That I woke up at like 4 a.m. like I always do. And all my alerts were going off. My inbox was full, and it was Tim Cook met with the other heads of the other big 5 tech companies, Facebook, Google, Twitter, you name it. Apple, but she headed up and made the decision to ban Alex Jones, and then over a hundred other platforms from Uber eats to LinkedIn, Uber eats. Everything. They said that you no longer can order Uber eats, is that what they did? That's right. My name was put into the social credit score, database that they've already setting up. I was the test case, patient zero for the social credit score, putting us into that. And so I saw that happen and I told listeners I said, this is for you. This is a president setting case for everybody, and now they had met that. So now, with lawfare and rig courts and weaponized judiciary and weaponized law enforcement, now what's happening to me, they admit, they said in closing arguments last week at the state sandy hook trial, I get what the judge said I was already guilty. They said, we're going to silence him, we're going to take him out. These are quotes. We're going to take his megaphone and then we're going to take everybody else's megaphone. Anybody that questions us, the judge said, I am truth. You are not. What I say is truth, what you say is lies. Those are quotes right out of 1984. So they have devolved into what George rworld wrote about 1947.
Alex Jones Shares Key Takeaways From the Mar-a-Lago Raid
"Talk to you about that, Alex, Rubicon has been crossed. They come after you with this ridiculous judgment. They expand the IRS 87,000 agents. They raid Mar-a-Lago. Are these connected events? What's the lesson here? What's the takeaway? A 100%, the corrupt multinational corporations that are anti free market monopolies, monopolists. They know the world's woken up to them. They know that people are saying no. And so they're bringing in every form of authoritarianism they can. Biden said over a year ago, he's going to declare questioning elections or questioning lockdowns. Or questioning force inoculations as terrorism. And so they're just simply trying to outlaw their political opposition right now. What do we do about it? We don't get violent. We don't get baited by them. We are culturally winning, not even as conservatives or Christians, but as populists that just want to free nation. And so people know Biden increased the inflation. They know Biden cut off the pipelines. They know Biden imploded the borders. They know Biden did all these things. And so they're just simply trying to change the subject, but the people are with us. And so if we just get out and vote and expose election fraud, we just promote our ideology of common sense and of family, people resonate with that and we're going to win. That's why we see all the tyranny because culturally and politically, the power structure knows that they're not with the people. So

Alex Jones Joins Charlie for a 'Controversial' Conversation
"Joining us now is the most canceled man in America in his own words, Alex Jones, Alex. Welcome to the Charlie Kirk show. Charlie absolutely. I mean, even mainline reporters interviewed Charlie Manson. Even I'm the worst person in the world. People should be able to talk to me, but the truth is they want to misrepresent what I've said and done, that's why they don't want me to ever actually be live on air. So big fan of what you do and God bless you is going to be here. Thank you, Alex. So let's talk about the sandy hook thing. Let's just start with that. I don't like what you said at the beginning. You've said now going back that it was a mistake and that you're not even allowed to correct it. They're trying to destroy your life in bankrupt you because of it. Floor is yours. Tell us the story from your perspective that the media is intentionally not covering. Well, if you go back ten years ago, the Internet question would happen there like that question, Jesse Smollett or so many other events. And I barely ever covered it like 20 something minutes they brought it to evidence. They tried to make me the sandy hook guy once Trump won. And so they just simply said, oh, he's a bully, he's stalking people. He's doing all this. None of that was true. They had Democrat judges in Austin and in Connecticut say that I was defaulted so I couldn't defend myself. I sat there while the judge said to the jury, he is guilty. You will find him guilty. So this is their new weaponization of the media. It's a very small part of what I recovered. I questioned every major event. I questioned you. I believe children died and you've all, but the head of the state police in Texas and the mayor of Yale do you say there's a cover up? They've been lied to. So they want to punish people that question things. They want to say, oh, he's not a populist leader. He's not a popular person with the people. No, he's the sandy hook man. And so they've used that like claiming Trump says all Mexicans are criminals. Well, Trump never said all Mexicans are criminals. He said some very good people come across the border. It's a very bad people we should screen them. So just like they tried to make Trump hates all Hispanics, fake news. It's the same thing here.
Celebrities Are Fake and America Is Obsessed With Them
"For Christ's sake, there's even a TV show celebrity game night, at least it used to be. I'm not up on network TV. I can't watch the shit. I think it's terrible TV. But on top of that, I hate it because all shows like this are just America's obsession with having to see how our celebrities live and play. We live in a sad, unimaginative era of gobbling up celebrity status. Here I am saying it and I have a podcast that dishes the dirt on these people. But there are so many networks, TV shows, network TV shows, from morning shows to late night, mid to afternoon to prime time. That have been given over to constant publicist pleasing opportunities for stars to advance their own brands, unchallenged, and pass off their self promotion as the very definition of fun. Celebrities no longer have to prove that they're talented, they mostly have to prove that they're always good company. The people we all wish we could hang out with, trust me, you don't want to. I did it for years and I finally left asking myself, why do I want to be near these people? Very few are interesting beyond their fame. Even fewer are sincere and real,
Two-Tier Justice: The FBI Raid on Mar-a-Lago
"Last question for you? The PR perception. You talk about their 30 people on the hill. I've talked to many of them just like you, you know, they sell the FBI and the sale of the DoJ. Is there anybody there that could give a look and say, hey, here's the mirror. The people are looking at you and seeing complete hypocrisy. You've got to get this straight because we need the FBI to be the FBI. Yeah, I mean, obviously it's got to be and it's got to start from the top, so it's got to be Chris wray, and he's got to inculcate that into the organization. And he's from outside looking in. He doesn't seem like he's accomplished that at all. I want to go back, Doug, and one other thing that we all should know is, you know, Bill Clinton took $300,000 worth of furniture out of The White House and moved it. You know, when he left The White House and who knows what documents there was a negotiation, obviously for that, that ended up being returned to plus years later. George Bush obviously, when he left The White House, there was an ongoing negotiation about his papers and documents and what was and what it wasn't a presidential record under the act. And I just, I see, you know, again, you talk about the two tiered system of justice. I see that there is an inconsistency here with how Donald Trump's being treated versus other presidents and it's quite frankly it's disgusting.
Child Star Jennette McCurdy Spills the Beans on Creepy Dan Schneider
"We haven't talked about genetic mccurdy yet, have we? Oh, wow, this is quite a story. Jennette McCurdy has written a book about all the shit she went through as a child star and the excerpts are pretty wild, but I do recall me giving you some of this crazy story on this podcast some years ago, so I was on this before she wrote the book, so Jennette McCurdy, who used to be on the children's show I Carly. She wrote this memoir, wonderfully titled, I'm glad my mom died. And horrible. And in this book, she details her life as a child star her relationship with her mom and her experiences with Nickelodeon. That's a network that many actors and actresses can't rub the stink off them. In the book, she really goes crazy. The book hit stores yesterday. So in this book, mccurdy details the humiliations and the mistreatment she endured while growing up in the public eye. She writes about being photographed in a bikini at a wardrobe fitting and then being encouraged to drink alcohol by a person she simply refers to as the creator. Now, even though she doesn't reveal the creator's identity, she is without doubt referring to one of my favorite subjects on fame as a bitch during my pedophile hunting days, will be smoked him out of every corner in Hollywood, and we name names, that would be the iCarly creator Dan getting the van Schneider. Who left the network back in 2018 amid rumors that he was verbally abusive and difficult to work with now some who work with him also said they felt uncomfortable when he frequently asked an employee from the costume department for shoulder and neck massages or he used to text child actors outside of work hours. That's fucking creepy than anything. Mccurdy also said it's important to talk about. It was so commonplace. His behavior and it was all accepted because everybody was scared of losing their job. I don't blame any of them. I get it. But it was really unfortunate. Everything that happened in the children's television series environment it really seems like there's not much of a moral compass there. I'm so glad finally, after all these years and she used to get a lot of shit for not wanting to work on that show anymore. After all these years, somebody speaks out against this horrible person.
Is It Time for a Refresh at the FBI? Matt Whitaker Weighs In
"This as well as the vast majority of FBI DoJ is 99%. I mean, they're tired of this. I think, you know, I've talked to them, and I know you have, well, they're just tired of this. You're right. Do we go back? Because you were sitting at the top of the ladder there. You saw some of this play out, you've known some of these players, is it time just for, I mean, down to some deputy level, it's time for a refresh at the FBI, probably at DoJ as well. And how do we make how can we encourage that to happen? Because this has gotten singing grain. Yeah. It is. I think it's also time for Congress quite frankly to exert its really one lever that it has. And that is funding. There needs to, you know, the FBI has, I think, maybe 30 agents dedicated to lobbying Congress. They are very effective at building these relationships, explaining their mission, explaining how important their mission is and how they do their mission. But when you're priorities are taking people off of violent crime, international terrorism, you know, listen, we've had 50 people in terrorist watch list try to enter our country in the last year on the southern border. You know, all of these issues, Doug. I think it's time to start having a conversation legitimate conversation about funding for the FBI and their priorities because they always come and then they ask for more money. I supported, for example, them plussing up their cyber capabilities seemed important seems sort of forward leaning. But you know, what I think they're using those resources for instead of doing the issues I just described and so many other important issues, you know, child sex trafficking and just there's a million issues, as you know, that the FBI investigates. I think they're spending way too much time on these political cases. For example, this one against Donald Trump,

"first year" Discussed on ICYMI
"In case you missed it. Slaves got this incredible show called one year. It's a podcast that focuses on telling stories from one year in our recent past that we may have missed or completely forgotten. Their current season is exploring the year 1995. Which was a time when the Internet was still in its infancy, if not basically a fetus. Episodes have covered things like the Oklahoma City bombing, a fertility clinic scandal, and the story we've got for you today. Is about what I think is best described as the first Internet soap opera? I think that's a really good description. This story is weird and wild and about a small group of creators who, through what amounted to mostly just a series of interconnected blog posts, inspired one of the earliest instances of an online fandom. It's a story about online creativity. I'm gonna say it. It's a story about parasocial relationships, and it's a story about how not everything on the Internet lasts forever. It's basically the kind of story I see why am I would have told if we had been making this podcast in 1995, which would have been hard for me as a three year old and even harder for Rachel. I was not even thought of yet. Make sure to check out all the other episodes of one year 1995, which is available wherever you do your podcast. And don't worry, we'll be back with y'all on Saturday with a fresh dose of icy wein. Without further ado, here's producer Evan Chung telling the story of the spot. Seriously, you're gonna like it. When Paul camusso first logged onto the Internet at the very beginning of the 1990s, he didn't find it all that exciting. There really wasn't much anything. Basically, there were bulletin boards. There were four arms. There was information. There was new services. Very, very basic though. I mean, it was just all more tech related and nerd stuff. Paul was working for the software company lotus. If you weren't a tech geek like he was, chances are that you'd never heard of the Internet, let alone used it. They were text only non graphical interfaces. Basically, you had to sort of keep a little notebook that had IP addresses. It was that simple back in those days. But in 1995, everything was changing. The Internet was becoming more accessible thanks to something called the World Wide Web. The World Wide Web is the fastest growing segment of the Internet, but most importantly, it is the most fun. The web was simple to navigate, but the arrival of search engines type in the topic and click on search. Oh, cool. Everything I need is right here. And the web was graphical. Thanks to the slick new netscape navigator browser. Programs like it are the future of the Internet. But then, you know, we had gotten to URLs, so it was a little bit easier to interact. And it was becoming a little bit more social. The internets of 1995 saw.

With a so just going back to clarity. One thing that that. When i was getting involved with casey in his mentorship i'd start asking him a bunch of questions. Like what do i do on this deal when we do on that deal and you always hold on. Take a step back. What do you want. And i would say. Well you know. I want financial freedom and i wanna do this deal at no. No what do you want like in life. take some time. Stop what you're doing. Take some time this weekend or tonight or whatever. Two hours of silence. Write down what you want. Because i think we get ask that occasionally but we kind of brush it off like we'll yeah. I want this. So i'm just going to keep doing this right now. We don't actually take time to really understand the magnitude of that question because the outcome of that question gives you total clarity in it gives you. What do i need to focus on and it gets rid of all the noise and everything else out. So that's something that has really changed our trajectory from even what i was was doing in two thousand twenty two. What we're doing now. Twenty two want is that question getting super clear on that question and then everything else becomes an afterthought so is there a certain frequency that you do. I like to do a quarterly quarterly quarterly. Just two hours in silence. Yep what is ryan. Yep and it's so powerful to reflect on that because in this business when you have successes. They're great but are you really accomplishing what you wanna do. Are you spending more time. Then you want to be working or less time. Are you spending time on the things that really matter. Think you can be really easy to get caught up in the success. And you know social media and a guru and just conquering. The world domination ryan. It doesn't matter it's all about what is important to you. And how do you implement that. No that's that's huge someone if somebody wants to get hold of you. How would they do that.

"An animalistic year is a bit under five minutes longer than a tropical year. Okay so we've tackled the concept of a year next. We need to address the concept of anniversaries. The word anniversary comes from latin and the word and ever serious and it is made up of the words honest which means year and versus which means turning. So if you ever want to be that person and someone says. They're celebrating a six month anniversary or a six week anniversary. You can smugly tell them that. It is impossible because an anniversary literally means an annual celebration. Weddings birthdays are the anniversaries in most commonly celebrated in the case of weddings or traditional gifts. Which are usually given there are different. Lists out there for what gifts are supposed to be. Given based on year anniversary is being celebrated the traditional one year anniversary gift in the united states is paper and in the uk the traditional one year anniversary gift is con- or paper. These supposed modern gift one year anniversary is a clock and therefore i suppose an ultra-modern gift would be an atomic clock. The whole idea of having different gifts for every different year of an anniversary is a rather new invention. It only goes back to nineteen thirty seven and surprise it was created by the american national retail. Jewellers association so we've covered. What a year is we've covered. What anniversary is now. We'll finish the topic by discussing this podcast. The idea for this show actually goes back a few years. The initial idea was a weekly or bi. Weekly show that went super in depth on a single topic similar to what i do now but fewer much longer shows. I actually credited list of episode ideas and began doing research. I found myself with enough material on the first show to do like a two or three hour program. The first show is going to be explaining. Why the mona. Lisa was the most famous painting in the world. A show that long is difficult to create difficult to produce and most importantly difficult to keep. Someone's attention. I had already paid for the art work in the theme music but i decided to put the project aside and just focus on my travel website and doing travel photography when the pandemic hit. It hit me really hard. Because i had all my eggs in the basket of the travel industry i never in my wildest dreams imagined that the entire multi trillion dollar travel and tourism industry could just disappear overnight yet. That's exactly what happened. People stopped traveling. Travel company stopped. All advertising and marketing campaigns..

"This episode might seem sort of disjointed but everything has to do with the theme of this podcast one year anniversary so with that said. Let's start with the idea of what eight year is. The definition of a year is simple enough into the time it takes for a planet to complete one orbit around its star. Different planets have different lengths of a year. A year on mercury only takes eighty eight days a year. Neptune takes about one hundred and sixty five earth years. Believe it or not there is more than one way to measure a year on earth. Cubans have traditionally measured a year from solstice.

I think because it at this point happens like we went through like a it was like a good majority lost year and then it happened again at the start of this year and then again like two weeks ago.

Because it's just i guess a part of life now but I'm kind of at this point. Used to it so. I think i'll be ready when it does happen. So do you have any message for other students who might not be as well adjusted as you are so any comments for students going through what well i know. I know my best friend she. Sometimes she doesn't really like going online. But i i realize it's good when she has somebody like me to this till like support her and talk to her until i keep it on track so i think if you're struggling talk to your friend talk to your family. Let them are getting too. If it's with your might not be a teacher like your friends and just let them know. Currently you'll struggling and just talk to people because talking to people is better than having to deal with it by yourself and that listeners is my wonderful gorgeous cousin bill.

Because i'm chatting to my cousin who i spoke to las jer in twenty twenty about her experience of studying from hiram so today away catching up to see what's changed. What stayed the say. And all those good question so billon so a year on from lockdown. Tell us what's happened. Since i think mainly just family like having everybody mum semi mom my dad and my sister wall at home and i feel like all of us through lockdown. Although we did get into faisal everybody did. We did get close and we did. I saw a different side of my family which was really good and it meant that. I had a lot of support during lockdown and that i was able to have people to lean on and talk to when you know lie forcing going invest. Obviously because of look down sir in school Like for online. I think the best thing for like for me was probably. I talked a lot with my friends. Like i'd facetime them or uses app courthouse party and i talk to them like every period. I think that helped me a lot. But also just like the support i had from. My family really helped me kept me going one. We lost spoke. You said that you know lockdown was going okay for you there. There were perks to studying from time. Now that you're back in school is this what you prefer or other elements of spending from home that you wish or that. You miss Doing online school was good. Had it's like getting up lighter than i had to get up. I was able to sleep in. I didn't have to get ready every day. I guess i wasn't putting like one hundred percent of my work. But then now that i'm back at school i do have to get up early. I have to catch public transport. I have to be focused in class. And i have to get my work done in class. So i'd 'cause the lockdown a lotta time i would do half the session. They'd come back to it and then do the work. But now i have to get it done in that time period of behind but i think one thing i miss is probably the flexibility and from online i was able to like take my time. If i didn't wanna do work the start of the session. I could do it later on but now i have to like i said i have to get to work on and i have to work at the pace that everybody else works out. Not my That's i mean it's not good to hear but it's interesting for anyone to hear this t here. That working from home or starting from home does have its perks right. I think a lot of the time we assumed that students doing work at home would create havoc and it did for some students but there were other students who also in our own drew a lot of benefits from it. so i think that's important What was the transition like. So when you went back to school on a regular basis. What was that like. Was it easier to adjust. I think at the start. It was kind of easy because we back at the end of the term so there wasn't a lot to like we really spent like maybe a month back at school and then we will on holidays but i think the start of this year has been difficult especially from like me and i know a lot of other people. Because we didn't do. I know for me. I didn't do a lot of work last year. Like it was a lot like second round and not getting the work done. And now i have to go back into an like an environment as i said before. I have to do all the work. So i think sometimes it does get a little bit stressful does get like like a work overload because i am so out so quickly now because i really do not do any work last year. So that's one thing especially because i had exams to do that was a struggle for me because i had to do a whole lot like a whole lot more preparation that i did not do last year and actually all the work that i had been studying. I understand that i learnt it and like knew how to do it in order to do my best listeners. You might notice a lot of background noise a map. A family house where birth at a family house sophie. Here some family in the background. That is why it's from there in twenty twenty one. We had to lockdowns. And i want to know what was that like for you. I didn't struggle. it was more i like. It was kind of easy. 'cause i went back to not doing really anything but in some like the second luxury it interfered on my exams or some of them got cancelled but not really i mean i didn't it was i think it see my friends which i think i had gotten so used to see them. Obviously but then we went back until oxygen and then it was like obviously see them so that was a bit hard. 'cause i did miss them a lot and i did like. I relied on them for some things so not seeing them was a little bit of a struggle but other than that looked good. It was good to get back to like slate like waking up later. That's one thing i did enjoy about it. Have you thought about in the future How you will handle another lockdown like is that something that i suppose keeps you up at night or are.

"If you're asking in terms of career nobody looks at least in our world right. Nick i mean probably in finance and stuff it matters. I will say in my career. There have been several times. I've been very grossed out by. Oh they went to business school story and therefore they're a more important person. There are people like that. They are very unimportant. And you won't be able to succeed without having gone to business school but you might run into that sometimes but no it. Doesn't nobody checks. I don't even think it's on. I haven't seen a resume with. Maybe i have but i just. I don't even look at that. Who cares. i slightly disagree. I think that if you went to a name brand college exactly help exotic. I'm just saying that it can help because people are like. Oh i know that place. I can place that place can place what that says. Generally even though it might not about your aptitude and your performance in academics in the social millea that you come from i can extrapolate all those things from a name brand school. Is that a good thing or bad thing. Obviously it's moot because it doesn't actually work like that but if you go to school the people have heard of course. It's going to help you noticed. That said when i've been in between companies and i have tried to get jobs at like i i've been trying for two years to get a job at google and i went to brown and i cannot for the life of me. Get a fuck in call back from google. So it doesn't help this name brand logo school i yeah. I don't know i think it does. It can help a little bit but it's not going to get you the job. Yeah sorry. I didn't mean to get like super political here but i think basically where i'm coming from his i have a lot of issues with higher education. And it's a racket and they're taking advantage of people student loans this i. That's kind of where i'm coming from when you asked me about like does what college you go to matter..

"Is hard into his his life or anyone else to really know the full extent so yes. They did but how far in they went. I don't think far enough to be honest. But that's just my opinion next question. And i would love to hear from an investigator on the case who can tell us that always would have been great on. That's something else. We should acknowledge because although we've talked about it we still receive some mail about. We didn't reach out to anyone on the other side. I'm that one episode. You actually listed off. I believe it was the last episode or second place you listed off every single person you contacted and it was close to thirty if i'm not mistaken between twenty five and we're talking about people on the prosecution side. Every one of those people were on the prosecutor side we got. We received a number of emails. Saying this is a very one-sided podcast because you didn't speak to someone that side we really tried and going back to why we didn't contact bills family. That was a decision that we made and we talked about our reasonings behind that. And that's some people think that was the wrong thing to do and a lot of people wrote in saying that they understand why we didn't so it's just a matter of opinion right. I really really wanted to. That's it is a matter of opinion on that issue. And i understand both sides to be drink. I still stand by what we did. But i understand it so do i but yes. We tried very very hard to speak to police prosecutor. you know. I invited patty to come on the show. Interestingly you know. Patty said she wasn't going wasn't interested in doing any more press on this case. Well i mean maybe that you could say that was at the time but then right after she also went on forensic files and went on dateline so perhaps she just wasn't interested in a forum. That was you know more about you know melanie story and verifying that. Maybe this wasn't right for her regardless patty prosecutor at other prosecutors police. You're all anyone still welcome to come on the show. We can have plenty of follow up. Bonus episodes clear. From where people did. Melanie ever take a polygraph test. Yes she did and she passed it but that is not admissible in court. And the reason it's not admissible as because not reliable. It's not reliable or you could say for the people who think that polygraphs are a good indicator you could say that. She passed a polygraph The police often use polygraph. As a starting point even if they're not admissible to help them direct away to or towards melanie's lawyers so joe tech aquino motion the court to get this admitted. I don't think he ever thought it would get admitted..

"With surveillance video but it was literally the exact timeframe surveillance question also came up about the chesapeake bay bridge because we know that bridges have surveillance. The bridges. do the bridge does have surveillance. But they didn't start investigating and ask for that surveillance for at least six to nine months later and they re-taped after a certain time that's because a lot of times. If you need surveillance videos it needs to be like right away. Maybe the tapes wouldn't have even been available frankly. They didn't know where because his remains were found in suitcases. And in the water or whatnot did they come up with a bridget. Someone drop them down there so they did them awhile for their theory to. It did take a while so surveillance was requested late in the game and therefore we really don't have much the only thing we have. Is that grainy footage. But it's still footage. That shows melanie if you remember getting out of those car. So that's when. She said i moved his car. That's all we have and that one we've debated forever whether or not. It was realistic that she moved the cars. I can't tell you. How many listeners wrote in on both sides saying that it was absolutely ridiculous story at other saying it's absolutely true in a totally irrational relationship. I think a lot of people that wrote in not necessarily that. Think melania's innocent but saying you know. She was in this strange relationship. I would have done that. Because i was in that type of relationship and i did crazier shit. So many people. And i didn't know this was a thing but several people wrote in saying. Oh no i did do that. I've moved my my spouse's card just to like mess with them on who. This was a thing. I didn't know it was a thing but anyway next question. I love this one because a couple people ask this. Has melanie reached out to kathleen. Zellner i mean. Do you remember a long time ago. Someone i said this on the show. What does melanie need. I said she either needs like new evidence or confession or kathleen zellner but i think kathleen zellner only accepts clients who have overwhelming evidence of innocence. And i'm not sure that melanie has that at this point. I think that's probably correct on and also the she really likes. Dna cases correct. I think most people really like dna case. I agree it. Will they make it easier. So melanie has not reached out to kathleen zellner as of now. But melanie does have new council. And i'll just update you as to that at the end next question is melanie and the appeals process because amy roebuck said she had run out of appeals. But in your podcast you said that she was still in the appeals process. Great question yes. I think amy roebuck. Was she's rice. Oh pretty amy roebuck is correct. That melanie's out of appeals. But in the in the state system. So melanie's appeals in the state system are done. She has now initiated. Her appeals in the federal system. So that's a yes. And no answer. However if i understand it correctly and sorry if i'm jumping ahead here there is something she could still do at the state level. She can get back in the courts she can. Somehow i don't know if there's a limitation but it used to be that it was. I guess with newly discovered like so. I don't think there's a limitation because if someone finds a videotape that show someone else doing it like there's no statute of limitations on. I'm not sure about the legal maneuvering but she could. Technically at some point get back into the state courts for now. She's in the federal courts. We're melanie or bills. Fingerprints found on the coral hydrate bottle. Answer is there no. There were no fingerprints found on it..
