Mike Rowe: Why 'Dirty Jobs' Is Still Relevant
"Here's why dirty jobs is still relevant Here's why it's still on the air 20 years later When I jumped on the call I heard you said something about Twitter and the latest Twitter files and so forth And the other night I'm sure you saw this People posting videos of their day at work Their day at Twitter Their day had Facebook where you see meditation pods and 5 star meals and encounters Sessions And long walks in rooftop gardens And I think you know I mean God bless great You know if that's a job and you got it and you're happy I'm happy for you but I think one of the things our country has become disconnected from is a reasonable definition of what work looks like And when I watched dirty jobs last night I watched a couple reruns and then I watched the premiere And modesty aside man I'm so proud of that show Not just because it was dedicated to my pop But because I really believe right now when I look at those TikTok videos of those pardon me but those ridiculous people showing what looks like work And then I compare it to the father son pool cleaner I introduced the country to last night And the soap recyclers And the pile jackets and the truck drivers We need reminders of what work really is And I Forrest come to my way into a show that does that And I really appreciate the kind words then because our country needs it now More than ever

"Valkyrie labs dot com. He's got to popular YouTube channel. I've linked that in the description box. And Forrest and I had a conversation on video recently at my home. The YouTube video version is also linked in the description box in case you want to watch it, but it's about an hour long conversation about tons of amazing stuff. So sit back, crank it up and let's do some science. Forrest, Valentine, me. Which sounds like a great game of Thrones name. Thank you. Thank you. That's what I was going for. The hero we need. Especially after season 8. The hero that we need to save the series, right? So you agree. I mean, just to digression, but you were as disappointed, oh, it was awful. It made me not want to watch the new House of the dragon thing. Because I saw how much they just phoned it in for that whole last series, just trying to milk the last drops out of the cash cow and get it over with. Like, I don't want to see what else they do now, you know? The problem is, is that when I express my displeasure, some people are like, well, it just didn't end the way you thought it would. I thought it would end well. Yeah, I thought it would be good. So maybe it's more about the characters acting true to character. Exactly. Dude, Tyrion was my hero, the whole time. I looked up to him so much because he always was like three steps ahead everybody and he was always witty in it and even when he did things wrong, it was because he thought too much not too little and then at the end he's just completely brainless and just doesn't know what's going on. What is that? Seriously is looking out the window at King's Landing, watching the entire city being torched, by the way, spoilers. I have no sympathy for you. She just keeps looking like she doesn't say anything. She's like, well, it's almost like it'll work out. Yeah, the person who's been absolutely like grab the bull by the balls, the entire series. Totally taking charge of everything. And now just feckless, whatever happens. Oh my God, it was so lame. I'm sorry to digress, but I just Game of Thrones. It's a shot of worked on it. They should have hired us. I feel wounded by it, so I had to say something. Exactly. It was a missed opportunity all around. All right, so I made the mistake of asking you your title. Or what your area of expertise is. All right, fine. Yeah, yeah. What do you do? So I usually just say I'm a biologist because it's much easier than getting into the nitty Gritty details, but I have degrees in education, general biology, integrative biology, with an organismic concentration, which we can get into what that means if you want. And liberal arts, which I got that degree because I had a bunch of extra bio credits that just went there. And now I'm a graduate student studying bio anthropology, which is the biology and evolution of our species of humans. So I'm a biologist. I study evolution and humans and by extension, human evolution, so sometimes I'll say I'll use the word evolutionary biologist because that is one of my specialties, or I might use bio anthropologist, but more often than not, I just say biologist educator. That's what I do. Good luck with that business card, man. Yeah, yeah, just a million years old. You can go into more detail too on some of the stuff that I'm qualified to call myself. You could call me a zo archeologist or a paleoanthropologist. Just add on all these different, you know what I mean? Just stop. It's madness. No, just stop. But you are a teacher. I mean, you're an educator. I'm an educator. You're also an educator online. You got your YouTube channel, so I'm browsing some of your stuff, and this is a while back. And I saw this, the secret science of the Bible that you had been addressing. Yeah. This is like a Bible code kind of thing. Yeah, it was a dude who wrote to me on Twitter demanding that I like drop everything and buy his book about how evolution isn't true in the Bible is proof of God and all this stuff. And I explained to him politely, I thought that nobody owes this dude time or attention. I'm not going to do this. And then he started like spamming every post that I was even mentioned in with this YouTube video that he put out proving that God's real and evolution isn't with the Bible because there's all this secret signs in the Bible. And the secret science of the Bible was stuff like that there are laws of physics because it says in the Bible that there's like natural law and that proves that God must be real because there's no way that people knew that there was like order or patterns around them until the Bible was written and like it was just madness dude. There's no real notable science in the Bible because it was written in the Iron Age. So why would there be? It makes no sense. It would be like me pointing back and saying that the origin of species is all we know about evolution, we have 200 years of further research since that time. We have 2000 years of further research since the Bible, which is why you don't sprinkle the blood of a dove if you have leprosy anymore. We don't need to do that. We know medicine is. Let's tell the Bible authors. Maybe you should call the sumerians or the Egyptians. You know, have a conversation. Oh yeah. This is not original thought. I've always been struck by the Bible code types. Because you think about the sadism of the idea, because there's a lot of writing out there, you know, secret hidden Bible code. Discovered by an apologist or expert, somebody smarter than all the rest of us. Oh, natural, yeah. They have the secrets. They have got every line. 13th letter tied together or you look at the second word of every chapter tied together. And I always thought to myself, God purposefully took with heaven and Helen the balance he took this critical life and death message and he decided to make it as hard as possible to figure out, right? You have to do this weird complicated dance. It's like, imagine if me, like if I get hired to go out into schools all the time, that's my job. I go to schools and libraries and colleges and universities and I get big talks or workshops, something like that. That's my main job. Imagine if every fourth or 5th of those, I just taught the plate tectonics isn't real or that the moon is actually literally made of cheese. And I taught that to children. And just like, you know, if you look at it, if you really read between the lines, the actual science is there. I wouldn't be hired again. It would be madness, but you have this dude that made the whole universe and laid down the exact rules of how to not be burned for all eternity. And that's got to be this tricky fiddly little thing that you have to interpret correctly and decipher, right? What a shit job. Who would do that? Why? It's madness. So evolution, biology, you do a lot of this type of stuff. You've done a Google search and type the word evolution in. I'm sure. Oh, for sure. You've seen how stacked it is, right? I mean, I type evolution into Google. And it's all of these creationist or ID, intelligent design sites who have done the meta tags or whatever you call them. Evolution news. Like I log on, I'm reading evolution news, and it's an ID. Anti evolution website, right? So you bumped into this kind of thing. Absolutely. Because that's the last desperate attempt that these people are making now to remain

Amber Athey: Biden Is Using Fearmongering to Hide From Inflation
"So let's go with stories in reverse I was talking about the most important economic story of our time right now Inflation And amber the reason this story is so important is I think you as observer of the political scene as I've been for the decade plus now The real issues that matter in politics are legitimately kitchen table issues It's not just a slogan You know you get mugged crime becomes a big deal Inflation becomes a big deal when you can't afford to put gas in your tank And the fact that wages real wages are going down and it's going to continue to get worse before the election I have to think this has to be the Democrats have to be sweating sweating blood right now thinking about what's going to happen to them in 2022 if this doesn't resolve A 100% And that's why they have gone so far in on the abortion issue because they can't run on kitchen table issues because Joe Biden has run them into the ground So instead they're trying to fear monger and terrify people and tell them that women's rights are being taken away by the Republicans by the Supreme Court But the people go to the grocery store and they go to the gas pump They know what's going on right They're not stupid And this is why you see minorities that typically wouldn't vote Republican going conservative I mean we've had historic gains among Republicans for Hispanic voters Meyer Forrest just one that swing district in Texas And it's because the Democrats completely misread their voters They think that people care about these wedge issues and that they're with them on these very extremist left positions but typically people just want to be able to live in a safe community and be able to see their families

"That's a good line You know and thank you to everybody that sends the super chats in. We appreciate it. Thanks bagels think michael walker. Thank you guys in And i'll show you guys out at the end to appreciate everybody who's commenting. I wanna ask you you around. A lot of champions now champion mentality is something. I've talked valentine about and talked to a few fighters about and it's interesting to me. Listen to yeah. She had a good episode in she. So laser focused awesome. And when you come across that it has to be a special thing. Do you see so much of that. Do you see too little of that. In the pi and around the fighters no man she. She's a special entity. Right i So there's there's no too much or too little right. There's what works for them. I get to spend a lot of time around brandon merano right now and i love his attitude. He's having fun man he wants to like. He's not a mean guy but he wants to fight being a fight. It's not a job. it's just like something. Really cool he gets to do. So there's there's there's a ton of different ways to approach it. So i certainly would never say one is right or wrong It obviously valentinas right for her. Hey when jones was fighting. He's he's Approach is right for him. When one chocolate was having his most success he was still partying. Pretty hard. right you know. So there's everybody has got the way they find their balanced the way they live their life. You know some people. I've known a lot of guys all in one hundred percent in everything in train all day every day. Post fight posters of their house. Two years later the burned out. It's like the you know the kid in high school. Football is pretty good but it's dad. Wants them to be really good and he pushes pushes kid ends a payton. So i've seen people do that themselves. So there's no right or wrong formula and right now again like we do the pi. It's individualized and customized customized tailored to that. Come on down and sign up it's You know with her. It's a special kind of focus. And i think everybody's a little bit different in their approach to whatever is that they're doing they're focused on other dealing with and i think everybody takes a different approach. I think what. I've seen the most in a lot of fighters in what i like to ask them and when i'm going back and forth to them as i like to see what they do in their personal life and i'd like to see what they do in their versus their professional persona whatever it is and understand kind of how they came to that place and that's how they process things and that's how they push things or that's how they digest things zoned out. What was the question. So i try to. I try to figure out what the fighters like where that medium is between being laser focused and not only and they have some now because of the obviously the rise of the persona thing. Who's the real person. And what's the persona. And that's i think there's absolutely some to that and i like the idea of leaving the house and putting the coat on for lack of a better word putting it on you walk in the gym. You put it on right and that's fine. You'd like phase change exercises you think about. I'm here this. I'm this person i'm here. I'm this person. I and then to try to you know compartmentalize and transition when you go home to not be that person. I never had anything fight related in my house. Nothing nothing so. When he came home it was like off. I mean i've watched fights at the house but that's it you know i'm watching him for fun If i'm gonna watch tape of an opponent..

I don't know i like i said this was i think there's others like I forget the year that goodfellas came out. And what actually one. It's like ninety. Yeah something like that. But there's a couple of and this is when the classic ones and now that went back and saw because this is something. I think we've been talking about this all history. Like you know the fact that you forrest gump pulp fiction pulp fiction at the at the academy awards. Now i've seen them. And i've seen them all recently. I said it's it's a. It's a lot harder call now. I notice probably screaming like this. But if you're in the like you know that range of people things forrest. Gump is shit poorly aged pop culture stuff than yeah. Clearly pulp fiction. Admiralty will be timeless forever. You know shawshank redemption period piece timeless forever. I don't know about forrest gump because again. Twenty five twenty. Seven years on the results are kind of like mix that like. It just doesn't seem like have had staying power that some of these other films for sure. So yeah it's easy to sit here and twenty twenty one and judge these things but back then stolen harder. Yeah what else do we want to talk about zor. We were of we mind or we at the bottom restrain the bottom of the barrel. I think so man and say oh. If you ever see barely gump don't open it. Don't open it. It's probably just bad product from above gumption product. Shrimp company Any left to one of these days. We'll have to do dances with wolves and debate. Whether it's a better picture than than the goodfellas. Because i think that's a bad. That's this is of a this. This is something that probably would age even less well than than forrest gump versus pulp fiction. Yeah yeah but you have to watch three. And a half. Hour kevin costner. Kevin costner schmaltzy western native american picture. I've only seen it once and it was a is a kid when i did it so we'll see anyway. That's that's forrest if you haven't seen it it's an ear are like iran our age. At least it's a great time Even i think imagine that. There's a lot of stuff for for younger people. Don't you know. Because i didn't live through any of this history. This movie stops at about the time. I started paying attention but i still it. It's a good time. It's got a lot of heart. Great performance by tom hanks one of the defining performances of his career. And they're all what's solid work by gary sinise michael t williams robin writes Like i said even. Sally fields a person. I think tins overdo it a lot. Is you know you're saying something. If i i see a mother role and i got nothing to criticize about it with an actor that i don't really like so anyway. I hope you've enjoyed our kind of look back at the forrest gump ear.

"That seen this cursing god. It's it's i didn't end. Yeah swimming at the in the com- what a great scene. Yep so you don't feel like he's he's punching it forest he's punching it everything else. Yeah yeah but that's the the is is marvel to how what a a line between him being kind of an antagonised forrest gump than to being genuine friends and aberration. All that kinda stuff plus. It's one of the cooler like triumphant beats like that they're out in this crazy store and they're the only fishing boat left that never shrimp and then like after. That trump was easy. There's this leg. Is this shrimp everywhere. This montage of them shrimping. And it's the line. I don't know if this song was out at the time it probably was. But there's a scene where he's trying to catch shrimp and he can't catch schrafft's says bubba tommy everything he knows about shrimp in. But you know what i found. I'm thinking all right please. Please let him say shrimp. And ain't easy come so close. He says shrimp and his tough man. If you remember that would that would have been hilarious. Brian also noticed the first time. Baba is going around vietnam with the Helmet because all the different shifts Written on it and grease paint or whatever his says i'd rather be shrimping he's crompton a jungles vietnam with the rifle shot at by charlie rather restricted man. Voyager bet his car at a bumper sticker on it said that too. I loved everything about i. Talk about this. And i started thinking about this movie. 'cause i for whatever reason i started watching clips of forrest gump but everything about him. Being in army the drill sergeant screaming and his face insane. He's a genius and like how bolivia's both him and bubba like the baba is like you know like the drill starts screaming and i interrupt his shrimp scampi speech and then as soon as he leaves off it's lightly anyway. You can also make gum. I i love those two characters and how perfect the are for each other and also like the the busing reprised. Ginny thing where he's like. You know people are like. I can't sit by meek and do this and the one guy had. This movie is super cute. In that way right the coincidences the to repeated scenarios as the ways that he gets into situations and the way. They connect the dots on his journey. It's very very cute. And in some places it's a little too cute for my taste. Only a couple giving example number. One thing that i think is too cute in this movie is him on the set of this talk show with john lennon. And he's asking him what's it like over in china and people are like and he says well the God nothing and john's is like no possessions. And then he gives him the second line of imagine and then he gives them the the and then the talk show host is like. I can't imagine that. And then john lennon's like it's easy if you try dick. This is too much. This is like i will grant you the watergate thing with nixon but you gotta take this out plus. It's not only to cuba. Makes john lennon. Looks like a massive asshole. Because he's gonna make it it. It doesn't feel sincere. It feels not just to keep. It also feels very fakey.

"The other thing that strikes me about that those early scenes Especially that opening scene where feather lands on him and puts it in his book in starts talking on a park bench. The the suit he's wearing. I don't know how they made such an ugly ill-fitting suit so iconic because when i see like a light cream color suit now of this style i think of forrest gump They they midst of the night. Didn't notice that they pointed side one of the articles. I read pointed this out that like every time they do at time jump. They always center it on tom. Hanks wearing kind of like some kind of cream colored outfit with that chequered. Blue periwinkle shirt. He's a little boy when he goes to like goes to high school football. When you go every single time they re him in that outfit and they add a coat too. I thought that was kind of a neat. But you're right it is iconic and it's only something like forrest gump can pull off tap ice cream suit with the periwinkle checker and the hideous worn out nights dow with like tube socks sport socks on the ways in the speaking. I wanna talk a little bit more. Gary sinise because like he's doing such a great performance in this got oscar nomination. But it's not just like the bulging but like there's a couple of light his line readings where like he's up legless and the crows nest and he's like that's where we'll find stripped by boy and he does a lot of things were like. I think we've come across shitty when he's kind of like making fun of forest or he's trying to joke forces too dumb to get the jokes explain it. There's a fine line. He's walking between being mean the forest. And i honestly i talked about this before we had a forest gump and our friend circle and it's always like it was. It was sometimes hard to walk the line between valuing their friendship and their humanity. And also just how fucking annoying they could be with with their with their handicaps. Especially as a young man as yeah. We were teenagers dealing with the you know But i thought like it is a deft touch. He had when those line like on the dock. Where he you know is talking about getting the sea legs and comes on. And he's like i know idiotic but dislike i. There's a part of it is when he's at his low point and he he sticks up for forest you know I dunno it's is the fact that you understand his anger right you understand. Did they make lieutenant. Dan of very sympathetic character in his own right And sympathetic in his anger. And i think you understand that. It's not directed at forest. It's directed at the universe. It's directed at dismiss destiny. Yay god is sometimes very literally directive..

"A nice through line and when you consider like how much you can tell about a person from their shoes which has line he says the beginning and the idea of like walking a mile and someone else issues that no Chestnut yeah you can sort of start to piece together like what you're supposed to get out of forrest gump how you're supposed to understand forest And put yourself in his shoes figuratively. And then i think it's also interesting. That lieutenant dan when we first meet him on the beach there in the camp. He's telling forest like here's a number one thing you gotta know about in the military being on this jungle. Take care feet where these specific socks. Don't let him get wet. He's concerned about the socks right but then he loses his fucking legs Didn't care enough about the shoes he was all about. The socks loses his legs. Come back and get magic. Legs just like forrest had when he was younger. I don't know what it saying. Exactly but the line was shoes in this movie. I was about to say this is dead. Man's brew but some are about two or three minutes ago. I think you talked me into it. Because you're right there. Something there some about him being concerned about this thing eating the legs off the g. is and then it does and then he gets a magic legs and that allows him unlock happiness and her free in from the destiny thought he was on. There's a lot of like destiny versus going with the flow. That's liable theme of this movie. Yeah yeah like and like tom. Hanks synthesize at the end. He's like you know who's riot. Mom or lieutenant dan whether we followed his destiny whether we're like a feather floating on the breeze and ended by that feather of course. Yeah because it is like if you are hell bent on doing some preconceived destiny like because that's what i was doing that like you know there. There's great montage of all his father's dying and all the wars of america. I love those little montages. Like bubbas. Mother's day and gary sinise face when he's away dad with his eyes bulged out it's great it's really fun. And just flopping like shot through the heart and his dad dying ditch ver- down or whatever but like until he was physically able to carry out that destiny. Then he started going with the flow. I guess i'll this damn shrimp boat. And i do this. And he led to himself. Have an appre. There is something like you can't surrender to fate or destiny but also it has its place to plan. I thought it's it's great because like the feathers soaring going and it lands on some guy shoulder. He brushes it off and go and finally lands a forest and he's the one that picks it up and does something with it and decide thing that's it. That's it's like it's all like you know movie Cinematic storytelling one. Oh one but i think that stuff really works because it is both like you have to have a plan but also you have to be prepared to take take life When the feather is in front of you you got.

"And like you know he said something that that's a great thing about the movie with forrest gump skating to say something profound and moving about vietnam and none of us can hear it. Did you see this what what tom. hanks said. the actual lines were no. I'm super curious. It's sometimes when people go to vietnam. They go home to their mommas without any legs. Sometimes they don't go home at all. That's a bad thing. That's all i have to say about that. Wow but that's what he said. Oh man i mean that's that's good. That's good that's true. Yeah i'll say this to me incessantly quote all the time is jimmy's boyfriend at the protest. This it's just a lot of times when we're apologizing for snapping at each other. We'll start like that. It's just this this war lying son of a bitch johnson also. I also really love forest gums. Fighting style launches in with both both fists piston eating every single time. He just he just flies out. You start putting searches like just like piston punches at the guy and i really like this is my favorite fight. Sequences number one. This guy has come. This guy is so fucking blowhard. He lays hands on genie. That's not cool. But i love. How like the black panther do like the panthers or cohen for the separate. And he's like on. Let whitey fight it out of ring. Watching these white guys beat up his out of each other at the black panthers headquarters. I love it. Love it can. I hit you. Missed a theory for what i think. The actual framework of this movie is okay. I think that this movie is all about shoes from from the very opening scene. Where four as you tell looking into somebody shoes then if you track forest journey through his life every i would say almost every if not every single phase of his life is marked by some distinctive type of shoe from cleats well from starting with his magic legs right as a child. Avenues leg braces to cleats. When he's a football star to army boots when he's in the military or combat boots when he's in the military Slippers when he's in the military hospital. I would say the only one i can't think for sure of type of shoe is like ping pong shoes. Elton specific pingpong trainers or some. He fought in his Gi issued slippers hospital slippers. He might he he he pong. Then you've got the running shoes later on right gene so the probably no shoes or or boat shoes. I dunno. I forgot about that. 'cause like i was thinking like when you're This theory is like there's a lot of like kind of meet the goddess Hero archetype energy because like shoes are often given to him by a woman. Important woman figure his mom gives them the magic shoes. Ginny gives him the nike that he runs across the country. In fact that's the thing. I noticed like i noticed new things when i watched this movie but like when they opened up. He's wearing those fucking nights. Yes those natty. Acid worn out thread bird that the ginny gave him to go meet ginny Because in his mind. That's like not the d. shoes are wildly inappropriate for me to wear but like that's something that ginny gave me and i want. I want her to know that. The i love her and thinks he's important touchstone for him. I know i like it..

"I was a different experience. Because i know like they. A lot of young guys watch forrest gump. And they see. Ginny is like their ultimate nightmare of like You're permanently friend. She never takes you seriously. But she's always gonna take advantage of you and she needs some stability and support than than insult of insult. He's going to drop a kid on your doorstep right before she punches out on the planet. And like i can see how that's kinda horrifying but i don't think people consider from genius standpoint right one horrible child the holy shit like only protective blanket forrest. Gump's ignorance really. And that's that's very effective. How they use force comes naievety to kind of like soften some of that stuff like audience gets like what horrible shit that the genes going through. But the movie doesn't have to come out right and say it. And i think that's also why people get mad about the way handle some things like racism and civil rights stuff because that same kind of like cottigny gauze of his limited grasp is kind of smooths over that stuff too but i also think that like yeah. If you got the payload of what's going on the genie should also get the payload of what's going on. You know fucking governor. Wallace smell that ship but yeah she's she's got terrible childhood with no one to look out for her and she is a fully aware adult going into one of the most multiple times in american history. When she's on the right fucking stand of most things unfortunately she gets mixed up with drugs and some other stuff but yeah and also like from gene's perspective even if she love forest ones looked like to have a real like. I think there's a lot of the she kind of doesn't know what the morality and ethics of engaging in a relationship with a man like this you know she taking advantage of him came. You know like she says force. You don't even know what love is. And that's when the more effective through lines in the movie him. You know. I'm barbara smart managing it but i do know what love is like that works because i think both of the is that point realize the truth at words but like up in that point you know what is forest ginny like. She was a stand up front all throughout school. That very different lives. He went to vietnam. She went to protest. It like i. I felt i felt a lot more sympathetic. And at the end. I thought it's an act of love to put force together with his boy because forces about to be truly alone in the world With no in the care for knowing the love and we know how gets like that in the movies he might run for three or four years. Now he's got a child to to love and he's gonna take care of and I dunno i felt. I felt a lot sweeter like it didn't feel like she's casting him a burden. I mean what the fuck. He's a kazillionaire. Right he's got infinite resources Like i. I don't see like you know. Fuck ingenious dropping her aides baby off on forrest. Gump store doorstep. So i i. I see why people see that character and thinks she's terrible but like i didn't get it when i was watching this this this this version. Anything think it helps that they have jenny. And forrest become friends when they're very young. Because the potential exploitative side of that like if if for instance you know he had become a shrimp captain.

"Written about like how forrest gump kind of dim is a little bit helps the not not exactly whitewashing of us history but the nostalgic where you know you go back. Chai forrest gump's childhood and there and he's living in deep. South alabama is named after confederate soldier. Who formed the k. k. k. But for us to so oblivious to all this that like the first time he deals with racism is when they're trying to integrate alabama like there is no like i saw articles like try to find the whites only sign in greenville alabama. Gonna find it because again. That the it's the way that they cast the sixties and seventies is like a time of turmoil and confusion instead of like in history rightfully so that was You know there's a lot of there's a lot of crazy shit that needs to happen in our country both domestically and abroad and this was like a much needed course correction. It's kinda weird and ninety four to still pick like. Oh and you know. But i i. It's it's how you feel about. I guess what what baggage you're taking into the film. We wanna talk about because there is some of the all time. Great alternative casting. Okay.

"And throughout the whole film as this love line between forest and his childhood friend ginny. And you know that's there's a lot. I think a lot of people hating this film because they hate the character jenny which will talk about. But that's it it's about this man's life and the improbable him inheriting the american dream And that's it all told like the framing device here is. He's sitting on a bus stop telling strangers about his life story essentially and they they kinda shuffle in one at a time and sort of catch pieces of this story as they wait for their bus and then leave and that to me like the characters. I felt worse for in this movie where those bus stop people kind of feel bad for forest. I felt bad for them. Because he is just talking a mile a minute about his shrimp and is Ping pong and jen and every time somebody is like sitting there a new person right because they'll will occasionally cut back to this bench every time there's a new person sitting there i'm like boy. They've got an earful. Just this whole time. Yeah and you can. Then there's there's like other huge spectrum of human reactions In patients and annoyance incredible incredulous nece But then some people that actually take time to listen through story can move and i think that's kind of an interesting surrogate for the audience. Because i think that's exactly how a lot of people feel like this is a waste of time it's claptrap it's bullshit versus. This is one of the most life-affirming movies ever seen so i think it's worth it's it's one of it's very it's it's one of the most vice of great movies i can think of Just in terms of people like outright denying greatness and its place in cinematic history But i think it's i think it's really good. I had a really had really outstanding special effects for its day. In fact this this is a trivia piece. I saw the only oscar winning film to also get an oscar for its special effects is true. Maybe at the time because like that can't be true of like lord of the rings. But i think it was the first movie the got You know you always think of that sense in science fiction fantasy but they use this to insert the groundbreaking technique in. This movie is two things number. One day raced. Gary sinise his legs and that affect is fucking rock-solid and i saw the director of the the behind the scenes of that old dvd. Like all the things they did. The blue sox the fact that they cut out parts of the boat renew swing so the they built rigs to make his center of gravity be correct and all that they built a fancy wheelchair the hit his legs. That shit really holds up the other thing. Is they wrote. Oh scoped forrest gump. Tom hanks forrest gump into a bunch of real life. Historical footage of you know president kennedy johnson and a lot of people that that there's a lot of notice for that That affect doesn't hold up.

"Rainman and dustin hoffman definitely obviously is playing autistic character but there are a lot of similarities. Right there's like right a certain way. The tom hanks moves in this movie. That makes you feel like it. The thing about this movie is i. I don't want the movie to ever make fun of forest for his intelligence or lack thereof. It does at times like his football coaches good example. Right like the boy. That boys is the some. I've ever seen but boy can run. Yeah that that is making fun of him but also he so competent he so capable that you never feel bad for forest in those moments right. You feel almost like you. People don't understand what this person is capable of. You feel like these people are the stupid ones because they don't see for it right. Yeah you can't one hundred percent. And the fact that like his mother from an early age built that kind of wall around him. The where like you know you're going to be talked about you but like don't listen to them. You know stupid is a stupid does like. I don't like sally fields. In a lot of stuff but i really thought and the the she kills it as as his mother and some of the formative experiences he has with ginny. And then the fact that like. That's something else about forest becomes his character like anyone that treats him with any kind of respect or normalcy. He just as they have the lifelong loyalty for better or worse yet. No baba jenny lieutenant. Dan his mother and I i don't know like. I said forrest gump isn't essentially. Just really good guy and he is it is it is weird. Because you're right it's like you know rainman. is institutionalized you know. He'd probably ma'am. I don't know maybe we talked about a lot of work that he could maybe have some kind of more independence than than he does. But like forrest. Gump is like the opposite. He's right where like clearly he's impaired. But you know not to go to the whole tropic thunder speech but demands war hero. He's a ping pong champion. Yeah he he's started a successful company like he's he's able to function and navigate and the real world but that's where we i think we need to describe what the movie is because i imagine a lot of people you know we're we're talking with the millennials and the zuma's maybe not as seen this movie and i don't want to think of it i don't you think about these. These are these are films made for our parents and their sensibilities and it might be a little bit too much but I liked to film. This film is about forrest. Gump he it starts from his early days as a kid He's got several things He's got some kind of leg disability. That makes them not be able to walk correctly. He's got very limited iq But his mother wants only the best for him demands that he has a quality education. And how those foundations lead him on an improbable series of it's making him College football star a war hero owner operator of company. weaving in and out of us history with president's From the like we sent you take him from the fifties to the late eighties.

It's like one thirty in the morning wideawake. I'm a. I'm a fucking. Jim and i was worried about me and i to be like but like i was. I was biz movie as we're wrapping up at five thirty in the morning. Mean tears blubbering amass on my Nah there's the seeing this movie at one o'clock in the morning does not dampen mind susan for it. I in fact. I think i wanna like when we get to the oscar debate. I want to say i'm going to. I think i'm going to be pro forrest. Gump think forrest gump rightfully won. The oscars all things considered and you can make their holy. It was nominated for a lot of oscar. That's the other thing is like there's one that's a little shakier but like forrest. Gump pulp fiction. People can have their favorites. But i don't think the one film is heads and shoulders above the other. I agree i. I would lean toward pulp fiction. I like it. More certainly It's more savory forrest gump very sweet yet for sure you know. I wouldn't say the forrest gump. Like stole the oscar from out from under like the clear. Best winner but right. It's a little complicated with shawshank redemption being this conversation. Because i think that's where the real if you want to say that movie guy robbed a forrest. Gump maybe because. I think everything forrest gump is doing trying to do. Shawshank probably does better in a more adult satisfying fashion. Certainly there's less than that schmaltz right less of that. Whatever it is over the top of this there are still veneer over the top of shawshank for sure. Oh yeah that yeah that magical realism almost sort of thing. But yes here is just. That's what this is one hundred percent. But i i like it i. I think this movie succeeds largely based on the personal charm of.

There's like fan of fifty percents of people think it's schmaltzy crap and there's fifty percent of people to think this is just one of the perfect films as ever made. There's oscar controversies about it. Which i'm sure we'll get into. But what is your experience with tom. Hanks with forrest. Gump what did you think of the movie. So i saw this. When i was in my mid teens i would say probably a few years after came out. It must have been on now. I mean it had to be very close to the time that it came out. But i would have only been twelve on this dropped. So maybe i was younger than i remember but My friends and i all saw it. And i know that.

The Yogurt Shop Murders
"Today. We're gonna be talking about another harder incredibly intriguing but again the details in this will be difficult. This is a famous austin case. A four teenage girls found dead in an incinerated yogurt shop. This is the yogurt shop. Murders and december sixth nineteen ninety-one. It was a chilly friday night. In austin texas fifteen year old. Sarah harbison and her thirteen year old friend. Amy eire's or airs again apologies. If i get names wrong. Were at north. Chris mall in downtown austin in nineteen ninety-one they were milling around shopping. Just kind of killing time until sarah's sister jennifer and her friend and coworker allies at thomas. Seventeen with their late shift which would end around eleven pm. jennifer analyzer worked at the. I can't believe it's not yogurt. Shop located in the hillside strip mall blocks away from north cross mall. I can't believe it's yogurt. Is something that i was familiar with but again it's a very it's kind of a heavier. Texas chain founded in nineteen seventy seven. It's a pretty cool job to have. I can imagine as a teenager. You know easy kind of fun. i would also imagine. Sarah was excited that iran ten pm when she went to help jennifer analiza close up that she was. You know getting ready for her weekend. It was friday night. They were all going to to a friend's for sleepover party afterwards. It's it feels like a very. And this i think is what gets me too. It feels like a very like typical nineties. That i would have absolutely been part of and i could see myself in this specific time and place just before midnight austin police department officer troy gay was patrolling the area. He noticed smoke rising up from the strip mall. Gear reported as a fire and firefighters soon arrived on the scene as they were extinguishing the blaze. They saw it wasn't just a fire. It was a murder scene jennifer. Sarah amy elisa were dead. All of the girls were naked bound gagged with their own clothing jennifer. Sarah eliza were found deep in the store and a kind of supply closet clustered into one corner allies. And sarah were stacked on top of each other while jennifer lay close by legs were spread wide open. One body had an ice cream scoop placed on it. They were all shot in the back of the head. Execution style with a twenty two lead bullet. Sarah's hands have been tied behind her with a pair of underwear that she had also been gagged with and she was raped. Jennifer was not bound but her hands behind her back. Elisa have been gagged in her hands were also tied behind her their bodies were burned almost beyond recognition with napkins and other flammable items from around the shop on top of them clearly used to help burn their bodies. They also doused and lighter fluid. The fire was so bad in the room. Austin reporter. Dick ellis recounts the melted. The top rungs of a heavy aluminum ladder in the back of the store. Amy's body was discovered alone in a room closer to the main dining area. She was not as hard as friends but she received second and third degree burns on twenty five to thirty percent of her body. She was found with a sock like cloth around her neck. She had been raped shot similarly to the others but the bullet had missed her brain. She had a second bullet which did go through her brain hitting her cheek and exiting through her jaw based on the patterns in the rooms. Killer may have stacked all four bodies on top of each other but amy had pulled herself off and managed to crawl out to a different part of the store. There was five hundred and forty dollars missing from the store itself. Police also deduced. The two guns had been used to commit the murder suggesting there were multiple killers in the days. After i mean everyone was obviously incredibly upset but of course a lot of cases that we talk about lots of mistakes were made and lots of people were suspects. The police department had over three hundred suspects initially and lots of false confessions right out the gate. The i suspect was a fifteen year old maurice pierce who was caught with a twenty two handgun in north crest mall the same night as the murderers. The same gun used to kill at least one of them. Eight days later he was brought in although he initially promising information after tough questioning detectives decided maurice was trying to get himself out of a gun charge and eliminated him and his three friends that he had implicated. Michael scott roberts springsteen forrest wellborn. All of them were under seventeen. When pierce's gun was tested. The ballistic showed it didn't match the murder weapon. Also fingerprints and hair collected from the crime. Seed didn't match any of the four teens. Eventually the investigators just moved on still austin looked feverishly around for the person or people who could have done such a terrible thing

Radical Compassion with Tara Brach
"Hello and welcome to being well. I'm forrest hanson. If you're new to the podcast this is where we explore the practical science of lasting wellbeing. And if you've listened before welcome back. i'm joined today as usual by dr rick hansen. So dad how are you doing today. I'm good and i'm especially good because we're going to have a chance to talk with someone who's been a profound benefactor for me personally which is a term that really means something to me as well as a teacher and a friend and just one heck of a personal the way around. Tara brach so. I'm really happy that we're going to be doing this as super happy to be here with tara. Tara is the founder and guidance. Teacher the insight meditation community of washington dc one of the largest residential meditation centers in the united states prior to that as you said she earned her doctorate in clinical psychology and developed a clinical practice or teaching blends those two backgrounds western psychology and eastern spiritual practices mindful attention to our inner life and then a full compassionate engagement with the outside world which has been perhaps particularly challenging recently. Tara has taught all over the world and is the author of three books radical acceptance true refuge and most recently radical compassion. Which i believe just came out in paperback and podcast is also. I think the largest buddhism focused podcast in the world. Which is pretty incredible. If you like what we're doing here you should definitely get a lesson so tara. It's great to have you here today. How are you doing fires thank you. I am totally delighted to both of you. You're both deers in my heart. Yeah that's sweet. one reason. I wanted to really talk with you. Including in terms of current events has to do both with your new book radical compassion which integrates acceptance and compassion and in particular. I wanna ask you about your use of the word. Radical your first book was radical acceptance. What's the distinction between acceptance and compassion or radical acceptance and radical compassion. What did you mean by that by drawing attention to that word including perhaps in light of current conditions. I've always loved the word radical. Ever since i thought i was a left wing radical in the old days so it has a positive impact but it has to do with going to the roots and there are many expressions that the heart that are really beautiful and i was really wanting to explore the most pure and full-bodied expression of acceptance and compassion. What they mean really in terms of freedom so in both books whether it with acceptance. It's like what does it mean when we unconditionally accept this moment as it is and we fully earned bodied. So we're not just accepting but we're actually fueling the moment so are completely here present and with compassion. What is true compassion. What's mature compassion. Look like feel like. How do we cultivate ed. And it became clear to me that a lot of people have an abstract sense of compassion. Like we'll hear about if we don't have covert or people losing parents with covid but not having to ask though. Be something in us that goes. Oh that's so sad but it's abstract it's not a tenderness in the heart so radical compassionate embodied nor fully here to experience being touched by the suffering and it includes an activity of caring and engage caring so again with both of those qualities of the heart a really wanted to bring alive what it meant to have the most mature evolve version of them. You're a psychologist as well as longtime buddhist practitioner and you have root zoom eastern traditions as well broadly and also europe. Practical person of a functioning. Business you've raised a son. I wondered how you wove all those threads together especially in your interest in getting out the roots of things really the deep roots blah. That's like a really big. And deep question your guam radical to there we go so one of my guiding teachings from this is three saga datta and i come back to this one quote. All the time is that wisdom tells me. I'm nothing love tells me i'm everything. And between the two my life flows. And i find with the radical deep practices. We actually see unveils. What is true is. There's no thing or person here and there's a really deep wisdom and that a real freedom from holding on an openness and were also everything it's like when we send that emptiness there is this fastness. That feels that the whole world is part of us and this is going somewhere in terms of your question that i find in my own life by go off to retreat. It gets very quiet. And i can see clearly the emptiness the no thing ness that. There's nobody here but it's not until engagement with the world and feeling both the suffering and also as i'm just looking at you because your dear friend seeing the goodness and really feeling at that i sent the everything nest that we really are of the same consciousness and awareness were emergent expressions of it and so in my life. It's been a gift to be both really in the mix with humans with social activism with the whole mass and also create the pauses the silence and the stolnis that allows that seen through to the radical roots of the nature of things. And i feel like that blend flowing. It's not really a flow between one thing another. They're utterly inter penetrating but that feels like a very alive path to me.

Man who found Forrest Fenn's famed treasure reveals identity
"So in an episode over the summer i talked about the treasure which had finally been found by an anonymous treasure hunter in june and after being adamant that he never wanted to reveal his identity. The finder of the treasure chest has just gone public blowing. The lid on most of his secrets in an article written by a fellow treasure hunter. In outside a quick recap though forest finn was an air force pilot who later opened an art gallery in santa fe new mexico one filled with plenty of forgeries as arts as tried to do people unclear in nineteen eighty eight. He received a terminal cancer diagnosis and decided to hide treasure chest in some outdoor location for people to find but then he recovered from the cancer. Still he didn't wanna give up on his treasure hunt idea so fast forward to two thousand and ten when quoting outside thin treasure chest containing gold and other valuables estimated to be worth at least a million dollars somewhere in the rocky mountains not long after he published a memoir called the thrill of the chase which included a mysterious twenty four line poem that if solved would lead searchers to the treasurer fended suggested the loot was secretive. Way at the place where he had envisioned lying down to die back when he believed his cancer diagnosis terminal since the hunt began in two thousand ten many thousands of searchers had gone out in pursuit at least five of them losing their lives in the process and the chase became an international story and quote. And yeah i mean the whole thing really has been a wild story people have lost their lives and livelihoods there have been countless lawsuits. You can read all kinds of articles about that have been published over the last ten years leading up to this year when in june the treasurer was finally found and the man who found it decided to stay anonymous because he knew how intense the community of treasure hunters is any feared for his safety but then quickly announced that he had met the winner and verified. He indeed had found the chest the to also decided to keep the location a secret so that it wouldn't become a kind of tourist site where people might injure themselves getting there were risk damaging the nature around it but all of that anonymity lack of closure did not sit well with people who had dedicated years of their lives to finding the treasure there was instant suspicion and then in september fourth fin passed away. The one man who could maybe smooth things over was gone and those left behind were even more dedicated to making sure. His wishes were upheld. With all of that has come a number of court cases in particular one from a woman claiming that the finder of the treasure hacked her emails to steal part of the puzzle that she herself had solved. She doesn't seem to have too much of a case however since she thought the chest was in new mexico and it turned out to be in wyoming but the case is still proceeding in the winner knew that his name would be released to the public as it goes on so he decided to preempt that by outing himself on his own terms the winner. Is jack still a thirty two year. Old medical student originally from michigan. He's keeping as many personal details as possible under wraps to protect his privacy but he does have a bit of a digital paper trail before to med school. He worked briefly at the onion and as a freelance writer. In fact he is the guy who wrote that totally inaccurate article eight years ago trying out matthew inman of the oatmeal as a far right wing. Republican in article buzzfeed had to issue a public apology for and which. I didn't realize until today that i still believed even after meeting matthew in minutes out by south west that same year back in two thousand twelve and discovering that he was a super nice guy. I still thought. Oh but some article made it. Seem like he secretly a jerk. I wonder if that's true. Which is a lesson for me in media literacy and not believing everything that i read especially when it seems pretty off base but also for all of us that no matter how many corrections or apologies you might issue online. There will still be tons of people who only ever see the mistake. That's a lesson that jack stiff learned early on in his career as a comedy writer and is probably part of why he has taken so many pains to remain anonymous in the case of backlash to him finding the prize. If and win all the court cases die down. What will still do with his findings. What does one do with an actual. The goodness treasure loaded up with jewels and artifacts. Stuff says he'll use it to pay off his student so yup the most accurate millennial answer possible to coming into unexpected fortune of. I still have to get the chest appraised which he hasn't done yet and between fins knack for forgeries and his wish that part of the chest displayed publicly so people can visit it. Who knows how much stuff will actually end up getting for all of his efforts but we finally have a few more pieces to the story. If you want to learn more keep an eye out for a book coming out next year called chasing the thrill written by daniel barbara. The writer and fellow treasure hunter. Who got checks to to go public

How to Handle Major Life Transitions
"Hey sober sellers oh modernise. It is finely the week of the big move. I know many of you are saying not unlike some of my friends. You've been talking about this. Move for a bit now lynn. I have only because this is part of my recovery. I'll explain more as we get into the podcast but wanna share with you. I why this is somewhat a culmination of the planning that i began. Who we back in two thousand ten two thousand eleven two thousand twelve. When i was just getting my footing in the whole idea that my life was going to be so very different than it had been for the previous forty six years. I was scared. Initially and i was not really focused on much beyond stopping drinking yet. Eventually i became someone who is really curious about how i could use my new skills that i was learning in practice seen every day every week every month and what that would do to my future. What possibilities might open up for me. And when i let myself think about and hope and be open to changes. How was i happy to know that. I could dream at the ripe old age of forty six and forty seven and forty eight and decide to go and get my master's degree. And what did that mean. Sure it meant. I had to sell a house and i had the move and start a newer life Three hours away. From where i had been living as i had gotten sober in those first two years and i went with it. I decided with the help of people who were supporting and helping me at the time to understand that. I was sure enough afraid of what i was about to do. But more so engaged in a process of living life that would help me cope with whatever fears and whatever things came up on the daily. Because of what i was about to myself into and that was a whole bunch of new things. Change is moving away renting a house. You know meeting a bunch of new people starting an education program. After god knows how many years all of that was really really scary and ultimately it allowed the discovery in me. That i could do these things and i could actually move through them not perfectly but with an outcome that i was pretty content and satisfied with so the first thing want to share with you today. Is that where i am. Moving to. i dreamt up in my head googled and figured out that a community that i had in mind. Mind's i where. I wanted to be how i want to live was actually being created right here south of atlanta outside of a nifty little town called peach tree city and at the time they were calling. It pinewood forrest which i've been calling it for this whole time as well but they recently changed the name. Because it's jason to a studio that films all the marvel comics and all kinds of really big named staff. But that's only a small part of what i moved out here for. But since it's across from the studio and the studio renamed itself two trillion with. That's what this new community is now being called the town at trilogy.

Have this coming Friday, which will be Friday the ninth of October. Three weeks until I moved into a new joint. So I'm really excited I'm not getting much sleep I'm so excited. I think part of that is also because of God bless America what's going on in America? How are you all doing? Yea. Isn't this fun? Two Thousand Twenty is so much fun. Right Oh. My goodness. I. Have to share with you. One of my new coping skills in this is a beauty I am subscribing to burn doodle facebook pages, Labrador doodle facebook pages I've already been subscribed. Two hundred gazillion King. Charles. Cavalier. FACEBOOK pages. That's the kind of dog that I have and what else? Oh, Yeah Mimi, what does she? Again? You know I just said to Google.

Only take the stuff that I. Love. Really love with me. And I'm just laughing at the process I. Don't know if any of you have tried to do this. You know you set up these boxes in your house and you're like throw away giveaway and keep and do any of you take things out of one box and put it in another repeatedly this is what I'm finding myself doing an eventually. It goes in one of the giveaway or throw away boxes but God. That's hard. It's a struggle as always trying to keep it light and bright before I dive into some Super Neuro nerdy stuff and wanted to share with you in a slightly different format. What I use in my perspective with my clients and a huge part of that perspective is neurobiology. In addiction and recovery but also something called life span development psychology L. DP how's that life span developmental psychology and how it affects addiction and recovery so are you ready cause here we go i. Let me define what L. D. P. is life span developmental psychology it is the scientific study of growth and Change Yeah throughout our human development it examines thoughts feelings behaviors in how they change during a person's life and how this change over the span of our life encompasses takes in biology social emotional and cognitive processes process the eased. Although there are typical pathways of development that most individuals follow no two people are exactly alike in the way that they change immature time. This is why cut and paste kind of treatment. Doesn't work for the most part. As an aside I don't know if any of you are watching the documentary on what is it on? Hbo I think called the vow and it's about this group called nexium that was delivering what they called quote Unquote Tech around personal development and what their tech was was trying to outline a step by step process at how to get what you. You're supposed to get personal development in insight into your own behavior and your inner life. When you work with a counselor, they were trying to do it sequentially and Nice little package and boy Oh, boy does this happen a lot that's reproducible that can be given to anybody. So you go through these courses and that the end you've gotten some remarkable insight into yourself. However. The problem with that is that you are all individuals over time your. Stuff. That comes into your system is going to be different at and happen at different times than your siblings even. So when people attempt to apply like programming if you will to the human psyche. It must be individualized and that comes only through discussion individual discussion over time with an individual. When I'm working with a client, I am going to look to help them you explain your life to make sense of your past in the present by looking at your environment and things that have precipitated or prevented growth and changes across your lifespan. Looking at things that optimize development in order to optimize or clarify or give you good outcomes what must be done is to apply appropriate theories to help you develop missing skills and navigate these situations that you navigated all by yourself way back when with no modeling healthy modeling and no real intervention terrible word. But that's the word we use intervention by somebody who knew what they were doing in, for instance, the realm of communication or the realm of dealing with. Emotions all that kind of stuff. So if you pull back and look at the stages of human development, there are predictable stages, but any number of circumstances can interrupt that normal development at any stage or age, and then lead to arrange of problems which might include substance use ongoing addiction issues or a multitude of other mental health illnesses. Let's briefly go through those stages. The first one is prenatal development development in the womb has an important impact on early psychological
