It's it's an us south one of the easiest things that we can incorporate absolutely so it had a new come to discover breath work in your own life. Yeah so. I got into the holistic health world about ten years ago and like many of us that start down that natural help path oftentimes. It's when we're trying to solve our own health challenges or that of a loved one and that was the case for me. I have been at the time experiencing chronic digestive shoes for a number of years and just never did anything about it just managed at the best i could. And then it started kind of stemming into other symptoms anxiety and hormone imbalances and other things. And at that time you know the my late twenties and i was working in pharmaceutical sale. And i knew. I really believe in that conventional model medicine. That's all i really knew. And i thought it offered all of the solutions to all l. mets. But when it didn't for me i was kind of forced to look elsewhere and i started reading books on nutrition and that led into this whole world of alternative medicine and vocational medicine. Integrative medicine and holistic health and it opens my eyes to all of these other options and solutions and it sparks passion in me and i ended up going back to school to study integrative nutrition and from there i discovered essential oil to j. incorporated into my own daily practice and then currently use my clients because i find them to be so powerful and then through all of that to you know it really is a journey. I stumbled upon breath work after coming up in conversation multiple times and making okay. What exactly is breath work. Like i've heard of like deep breathing and in certain style of breathing what is an actual bradford practice. And so i was out in california.

Warriors' plan aims to allow 50% fan capacity
"Year. We should have something to cheer about. But now, of course No fans or will there be? Or in the ESPN. Ramona Shelburne. Warriors have a plan a very expensive plan. Get 50% capacity at Chase Center this year. If you might be saying deter, how the hell are they going to do that? And I asked the same question. And I'm still pretty skeptical that they can pull this off because as of yesterday or maybe even the day before that, I believe they just rolled back. Lot of openings that we were doing here in the city of San Francisco. Situation is not getting better. Getting worse. We're not going to get into the nitty gritty of that. Because that is something I'm not fully qualified to do, Nor probably are you unless you are. George Rutherford, Dr Jordan Rutherford Police feel free to call in Anyway, KNBR. Warriors want to get 50% capacity. At Chez Center. And here's How Joe Lake up who, by the way Bio tech billionaire public health. Degree from U C. L A nose a little bit about. This has a little bit of expertise in this area. I wouldn't say he's epidemiologists or anything like that. I wouldn't put him in charge of the Coronavirus task force. Or anything like that, but certainly more qualified than myself. To figure out how to get 50% capacity. At Chase Center. Now bear with me hear it does get a little In the weeds. But when we're talking about this, we need to be specific about what the hell's going on. This information is important, even if it is a little dense. I'll do my best here but bear with me. The plan is Lakers going to spend $30 million Which you might say That's chump change. That's an Andrew Wiggins. The test every fan employees and player Media to be determined. I would imagine that he's not going to spend the money on us Can't really blame him. Of course, you will have masks and you will have distancing. But the plan is they're going to use a rapid PCR test. So the PCR test that's the deep one right where they get real up in the nose. Those were supposed to be about 99% accurate Now, Joe Lake Up, says he's gotta read. He's got a He's got a guy. He's got a plug. You can get him rapid PCR tests. That means 20 minutes or so you could get an answer, as opposed to what we saw with Major League baseball, where it's 24 hours later, which worked out great at the end of the World Series. I mean bang up job. Think about the amount of times that baseball had a problem this year because of the delay. We're going from 24 hours to 20 minutes. And you might go. We already have rapid testing like that, Peter, we do. There. Auntie Gin tests. Now this is this is the difference. The PCR is the 99% 1. So that's finding any kind of the virus. In your nose. Going up in there finding some of the virus. And then through technology being able to figure out, you know. If you have it or not, If you can't find it after the amplifying, amplifying, amplifying, amplify you don't have it. You got a little bit it. The anti Jin tests are different. They're looking for something that is bound. To the virus. Basically, you have to be shedding the virus in order for the anti Jin test to succeed. Now, those tests are very fast. Take like 10 15 minutes, right? You could get a result. If you're shedding the virus, you probably are showing some symptoms. And so it's estimated. But there is a 30 to 50% miss rate. With these rapid auntie gin tests. Which at a certain point you're like, Why are we bothering with him? Why are we spending all this money? The PCR is the way to go to believe to be 99% accurate. If we could have a situation where the PCR test He's going as fast as the anti gene tests. I don't know about you. But 99% is a lot better than 50% or even 70% on its best day. The Joe Lake up once rapid PCR tests for every fan player and employees. On day of game. Now. I don't know what it's not like You could put everybody in a room in test. Um, just sit around. Mean Chase Center has a great filtration from everything I heard. I heard that well before you know, we really cared about filtration because that was something I cared about him. Big fan, big fan of ventilation. I think they can change out. The air and Chase Center four times an hour like change out the entirety of the air, which seems like a pretty good thing to do. You could also have nothing but outside air coming in. Really let it flow. And I say that would be a good plan. But these rapid PCR tests are the difference. And then George Rutherford. The After mentioned George Rutherford public health expert saying This is as close to a perfect plan as I've seen
Will Joe Biden be the Food Tech President?
"We're here for another editorial podcast. We're gonna go around the horn. We have with this gin marston jen. Hello chris albrecht are you. I'm good how you doing mike. I'm doing well. I feel like today's this week is a little more relaxing than last week. Which i know about you guys kept hitting refresh. My browser to get news. Don't have to do that this week. just a little bit of a relief on that regard but the the food tech news is actually pretty hyper active this week and i feel like there's been like three or four stories around mcdonald's in the new plant beefburger alone chris the mkx plant. Can you tell what's going on with that dude. I have no idea. It's kinda crazy. So they announced yesterday they had some investor virtual investor day. today were recording on tuesdays. This was monday suddenly like. Oh we've got this thing called plant. So this is a notable for a few reasons. One of which being mcdonald's has sort of sat out here in the us anyway on the plant based burger craze so whereas burger king introduced impossible whopper last year and white castle has it's impossible sliders and even burger king had an upper. Kfc had dipped its toes in with some pilots on plant based chicken. You hadn't heard anything from mcdonald's than they had run some tests with something. They called the plt eighties. Kid makes me think of pyti but the plt up in canada which they did in conjunction with beyond. Now here's where it gets interesting. Because in the announcement yesterday they said. Hey we're making this plant Which on its own makes you want to say macpoilin for those people who watch the it's always sunny in philadelphia the The so this mc plant burger is coming next year But they didn't say who what they said. Actually they said developed Culinary team made by mcdonald's for mcdonalds so hearing that was like okay. they're making their own. They tried beyond didn't do what they wanted to do. So they're making their own and then a lot of people reported this right so beyond stock took a tank took a dive yesterday. Because they're like. Oh you're not be doing it for mcdonald's and then mcdonald's came around and said oh actually you know actually rephrase this so mcdonald's center around a clarification and let me just because this gets crazy so their pr person sent me calms team. Sent me an email saying in the same way. Mcdonalds has not run its own farms. We are not manufacturing plant based meat for the client platform notice. It's a plant for platform about a food We will rely on our suppliers the third leg and mcdonald's three legged stool blah blah blah blah blah. Right then it says mc beyond meat was our testing partner for the plt plant based burger in canada and we have not announced which suppliers we will work with on mcclymont so clear as mud like cagey cage. Yeah well and then beyond came out yesterday and said hey actually. We co created the plant and You know they were but that was on their own call. Mcdonald's didn't say anything about it right so The but beyond said beyond meat and mcdonald's co created the plant based patty which will be available as part of mc plant platform. But they don't say going forward. That beyond meat is the supplier right. So this may sound muddled because it we're still trying to figure sort through the news it does sound like there may be implying it but there's no definitive i did I think you may be posted in the slack. The picture of the beyond beyond meat stock in lewis. One of those pictures were it. Went off a cliff around eight. A m and win. There's a curfew Around at all of a sudden jumped back up like it was a huge like And so i. I don't understand the kgb's mcdonald's wants everyone to think that they do everything themselves. But like we know they don't grow their own potatoes or simply naito they. We know that they work with the we know they don't own a cattle. The work with farmers wasatch secretiveness. I i don't have. They ever co branded a burger before I don't think so no so. I mean that you could say that for anybody like i don't have white castles. That are burger. King has ever done that but you know they look at impossible. Burger right with the impossible Beyond the big. Doesn't i mean burkey has impossible right rapper. And and i guess from mcdonald's perspective maybe thinking well there's not a lot of differentiation if like all of a sudden a bunch of other fast food restaurants are having beyond meat in their burgers I think maybe they just wanna claim that it's uniquely felt for them I don't know other than that. I can't really feel why. I mean i think then possible walker was developed. Fairly uniquely for them. I mean it. Has that weird kind of gross x-ray on like that a grill taste or that flame royal tastes that his uniquely burger king. Impossible has Which makes me think they've spray somewhere chemical on it but But i i get it and by the way mc plant can we just discuss the name a little bit like myself walked in. He goes dead. Mcdonald's has a new plant burger called mc plan because he goes. I started laughing. How dumb the now. This is my teenage son. So yeah it's not playing well the number that it is has it said. It's like so absurd. You can't forget it

What are Pumpkins?
"Today. We're going to talk about the domestication and radiation of Pumpkins. It's the season, right? It's time to talk about Pumpkins and it's funny because we originally did this topic about. Four years ago. Only, the recording didn't work so well. So it's taken me a little wild catch up with our guest again. So we're speaking with professor. Harry. Paris. He's a senior researcher in vegetable crops at the balcony centers. N- Avai our campus in northern Israel. So welcome to the podcast again Dr Paris Thank. You Kevin. It's very good to be here. It's good to talk to you. It was very nice to hear your voice. I'm here in Florida and were here for a while a research visitor, right? That's right. I was in Florida twice on Sabbatical wants at your campus the US campus in Gainesville another time at the campus in Fort Pierce. Two places here in that you're familiar with I'm actually out in. Archer. So I'm south west of campus. You might remember that little town that you did on the way to see her keys archer roadway isn't it from Gainesville to archer? That's right. Yeah. About about twenty minutes out of town and and and and I actually am married to a farmer who she grows pumpkins. So So this is perfect. I know a little bit more about than I did last time we talked. But we're GONNA talk about Pumpkins and so what is this thing? We call a Pumpkin? Well Pumpkin and is around fruit. And, pumpkins belong to the genus superb atop and in capita we have fruits that are edible. These are full pumpkin squash and we have fruits that are usually small and bitter and generally inedible those a cold Gorz. The around edible fruits are cold pumpkins and the fruits that are not round butter edible cold squash. That's general lingo. That's generally the way that. Talk about them you don't think about. Zucchini as being a Pumpkin Zucchini squash or a crook nick his crook neck squash. It's a squash not a pumpkin. Pumpkins our the kinds of things. You just WanNa pick in and pick up off the ground and hug. Nice round. They are edible, other also use for decoration. Well there's a couple of kind of. That we see here in Florida that seem to do better than you know the big Halloween type of Pumpkin on there's things called seminal Pumpkin Another thing that we have that leaders call it tropical Pumpkin, but these seem to do very well in the in the heat of this region. Is. There is a lot of diversity aside from the you know decorative Pumpkin that we sometimes think about. Oh, this quite a bit of diversity in the Genus Kirpa capita. We have three species that are widely distributed in cultivation round the world. We have the familiar halloween decade or Pumpkins they belong to one species cold credit to people. And then also at Halloween, you see these giant gins these belong to the species. Appropriately. Named Carpet Maxima. And then finally, we have the tropical pumpkin seminal pumpkin and squash they all belong to the third species, who Kirby tumble sculptor. And People is native to North America. That is native. It grows wild to the ancestors of all the Pumpkins and wild gourds growing in what is now the United States and Is. Worth ultimate ancestors of the. Pumpkins. Whilst. credit the Maxima the giant Pumpkins, Ankara, Demos Scotta. The tropical pump in on both very likely native to South America who it's Scotto to tropical northern part stuff America. Okay I didn't know that. So the so these are South American origin. and. The people, North American. People's our North American. Maximum. Yes. Okay and so they the if we if we focus on Maxima and focus on most gotta those are coming from South America when. who was the original domesticated and did they find these were indigenous peoples of of the Americas but what did they find useful about the Pumpkin? Okay well, perhaps each species might have been domesticated for different reasons offer more than one reason. Capital Scott I suspect I suspect I don't know. But I suspect was first domesticated for use of its fruits, probably the young roots and then the mature fruits because they. what happens in primitive or wild gourd is that they they ripe fruits midshow fruits tend to dry out and be very fibrous. whereas the young truth sal you could. Eat them if happened than up to be bitter or if you Olympian water about eight times over to. Drain Alpha bitterness. So I suspect criminal, Scotto was first. Domesticated for use of
Transforming Clinical Trials with Digital Technology
"First. Let me congratulate you on the publication of your new book. The patient equation. Thank you like it was pretty exciting to see it in print. We're GONNA talk about clinical trials, your company Meta data, and the opportunities to capture data differently and reshape the way clinical trials are conducted. We're in this time where virtually everything we do is generating data. There's a proliferation of new means of capturing data in real time from a healthcare perspective. What's the opportunity before us to improve health and particularly the diagnosis and treatment of disease So I think that we've and somebody's Kobe nineteen is putting a magnifying glass on top of this but we've we practiced medicine pretty much since its inception by looking at data in very short little staccato timeframes. So you go to your doctor and you have your blood drawn on that particular day at that particular time You tell somebody how you were feeling that particular day at that particular time or at least try to recall how you were feeling for a period of time. But certainly wasn't something it was proactively measured. We we we get our gene sequenced and we find out what what actually happened at the moment of conception in terms of setting up our genetic future. Yes. Yes. In some diseases, obviously cancers is a perfect example, your genes. Do Mutate individual cells, but we're we're pretty much dealing with the same genes that we had over all our forty eight, forty, eight years ago. I've got today. So that is the context of thinking about what ails me, what is the right treatment for me and it's these little moments in time and I think your point about data Zuri will put its discount streaming around us everywhere, and whether it's the technology that's in our pocket or on a wrist or. Maybe things that are biologically more feasible to do not just from my know iphone perspective but can we start to monitor with medical grade sensors overtime or even just expand the dialogue with our doctors? So those conversations can happen anytime I think the big difference is that we're gonNA start to see these continuous where we actually see rate of change not just these single moments as part of how we think about diagnosing disease managing disease making sure people are getting the right treatments. That's a giant paradigm shift. That again, we've probably been waiting for literal millennia to have happened but I think we're about to to really live through that scales pretty exciting. You speak broadly in the book about the potential for data to transform healthcare I wanted to focus on clinical trials specifically. But before we do that, perhaps you can explain what metadata solutions does and as a way for listeners to understand your visibility into this world short I actually got extremely lucky in my career. If you go back twenty five years ago I thought I'd be researching one kind of cancer probably looking at maybe one gene in it. For the rest of my life and actually frustrated by the infrastructure that was available to run the research that I was doing. So how I would connect what we were doing in the laboratory with the records for patients who were volunteering to be in studies that we're working on a how he took that and turn it into something that we could publish from an academic perspective all that was very slow and cumbersome, and so with a few friends. Gins. Now, twenty five years goes when I was doing research about. Twenty years ago, twenty one years ago with friends we started what is now data and it really had the the mission of trying to help us get things from that laboratory stage into the hands of patients who are waiting for them by trying to connect all the people and all that data in a much more seamless way in a way that would allow us to accelerate the biological the medical revolutions that we were trying to power and terms of something that would really generate patient you simply put. We started connecting everybody over the Internet and we we started by connecting the professional. So people who were working scientists physicians. Statisticians that people in the life sciences, world and medical centers. Professionals Online. And this was back in the day when the only thing you could buy on Amazon Dot Com was a book. So kinda dates us a little bit but really if we can buy a book online, why can't we run our clinical trials online and and basically that's what we did fast forward twenty years and we realized a of course over the course of time that not only could be connected professionals, but we could connect the patients, and now I could we connect the patients who were volunteering to being these research projects, but we can actually connect the research projects. To each other as well. So everywhere there was a time barrier everywhere there was a systems barrier. We realized we could overcome that and create this kind of. Continuum, of data across everybody who had the same mission of getting new therapies into the marketplace, and that really has resulted instead of me being in the lab. Looking at one gene one cancer for the rest of my life. As I said getting very lucky and now I get to look at what's happening
Trusting Yourself with Kay Lopez
"K. Welcome to government palm thank you so much for having me. I'm so excited to be here and tastes space with you I'm excited. Let's dive in. Let's dive in. Tell us who these K- what's your heritage I am Mexican American first generation. My family is from automakers go first generation. So you were born here yet I was born in Houston Texas Houston Nice you've left in a lot of places. Yes. So I lived in New York New York. was really a five year. Plan. which turned into an eight year adventure and after the eight year mark I was like you know what it's time to move again. So the West Coast was calling at, it was time to make that big jump. So I've been jumping around coast to coast. Now let's talk about what made you decide to go to New York. It's so interesting because it kind of relates to what's happening now in terms of the economy recession and reading the happening. So when I graduated graduated during the recession. It was very difficult time to. New in my specific industry will for everyone just graduated in trying to build their career might track was very specific in communications and advertising and being in Texas. I was so limited to what roles rick available to me and I really needed to think about my career was a very hard decision to make need my family being the first in my family to say peace everybody. Being. The eldest in a female, it was hard but I needed and I really had this desire to accomplish my dreams career. Wise. So really wasn't planned in my head. I was like eventually I'm going to move to New York. So a friend invited me to her wedding. She was originally from Houston she moved to New York. She met someone amazing. She was you know having her wedding she sent me the invite and I went to the wedding and it was only supposed to be for the weekend. So I had obviously packed lightly and then the night before my fly I was the Brooklyn Bridge with a friend and I said you know what? I don't think I'm going back home. What girl your flight is like at five in the morning. Midnight where you talking about he's like, where are you going to stay and I was like you know what I think this is it. I think this is my moment and I miss my fly and I called my parents that five in the morning. So I literally woke them up my dad the phone and I could hear my mom and she was automatically like worried like who is it and why is she calling? So early like what's happening I was three in the morning. It was like around two o'clock So they automatically you know freaked out and I told my dad, you know he was just waking up so you could hear his yeezy could hear him like confused and he was like dusted. And I was like, Yeah Pa. Did limit that. Go Gin. And They Like I'll figure it out I. Think I'M GONNA. Have a few friends that I went to college with and I'm just into a little couch surfing and that's what I did and it was the craziest thing that I had ever done in my life that no one thought that I was boy to ever do because I was always you know I was sheltered and that was my journey to new. York was like, okay I'm here I'm going to go through this five years just build my resume and go back to my family five years turned into eight and you know that's really how I moved to New York it was just really wanting to reach my dreams and see how much I can accomplish on my own I. Love it after that phone call with your dad and your one suitcase. So you bounced couch served all that stuff. So because if people are listening there like you know I want to take off and like just do it right especially in the middle of a recession. What was the first thing you did? Well to prepare for that was I created a list of all the places that I wanted to work at. So I already had like a vision in terms of like, okay. Where these are the companies I'm going to fight to make sure that I was prepared in terms of like my portfolio examples I only had one internship when I. Finished College. So I didn't have too much like actual work to show at a lot of like comps in examples of what I could create but I had a strong portfolio might professor reviewed all of that I had resume that again, my professors have looked at and I had that list at working list of like, okay. These are the companies that I'm going to hit up and. I that's exactly what I had with me. I didn't have a lot of money had four thousand dollars to my name and anyone who has been to New York or knows New York that's nothing. Right while name that is not and it was you know sitting at McDonald's and eating the dollar menu the cheeseburgers in the coffees in sitting there with my notebook in my laptop my. Old Laptop in like scratching now, agencies that I had a I to like motivating myself every day on top of the pressure like my parents constantly calling checking in on me and wanted to know my progress was

I'm it rains is the Esports when it presented by E Sports Network first, we have to go through groups for people unfamiliar with the League of Legends world's format two teams get to advance through the group stage over for groups. That means eight teams have advanced down these groups were created through finishes in the splits and through play and qualifiers five Regional leagues account for the vast majority of teams, eu-china Korea and in Southeast Asia and North America off of North America sent three teams, two groups and three teams are headed right back home team liquid flyquest and TSM were the three n a representatives and each has been eliminated. It's a poor showing for the life in a and shows any as clearly fallen behind the other three major regions. Now before I get too ahead of myself, let's go through the groups individually group a saw China's tuning in Europe G to Advanced Team Liquid. Most pulled out a miracle of an advance after a poor start but ultimately finished with a record of three and three just a half-game behind g2s 4 and 3 in group be damned own gaming from Korea took the top spot with JD game from China in second Eves Rogue and PSG Talent from South East. Asia were eliminated group seesaw. Korea's Genji and used fanatic Advanced. China's lgd game about finished third and and he's biggest disappointment TSM finished fourth going entirely windlass at Owen six brutal finally group d t o p e Sports from China took first dog Rex from Korea in second and five Quest finished third with a record of three and three just like liquid. Although that one wasn't quite as close now group also saw the only other winless team unicorns of love to join TSM and unicorns of love was to be expected as they were the only team from outside of a major region with the unicorns coming from Russia. So breaking it down by region brings us down to just three leagues Europe's wage. Two teams Advance out of a possible for China's LPL had three teams Advance Auto possible for and Korea's lck had all three teams Advance. Well groups are a round-robin best of one set up in Brackets. We do a best-of-five that's a bunch different strategy than that round-robin format. It'll be interesting to see how teams adjust the games will start tomorrow morning at 3 a.m. Pacific time. That's 6 a.m. On the east coast and 4 p.m. On Thursday in Shanghai where the games are actually being held that will be the time of every match up in World from this point on unfortunately before we dive into the matchups for clarity purposes every record and finish. I mentioned will be from the summer split. It's the best marker of a team's current form and has the biggest impact on Worlds. The spring split is also important, but it can get confusing when mentioning where teams finished in two different playoffs and in two different regular seasons. So as I go through these matchups and I talked about Where they finished every single finish will be from the summer split or the summer playoffs with that being said, let's get into the matchups. Tomorrow's match will pit to Korean teams against each other day and woke my brother's overall pick to win the championship will take on d r x demo and finish first in the lck this year with DRX right behind them in the regional finals Daniel and swept DRX. Let's see if they can do again with the pressure of world still you have to go in assuming damn wants a favorite here. Friday morning is another Regional matchup this time two teams from China and swooning and JD gaming swimming has an emerge as a dark horse in world after beating out favorite G2 in group a but JD gaming is also dominant the team finished second in the LPL and lost a close finals match against t o p e sports team swept shooting earlier in those same playoffs. It's JD gaming is the favor but soon he has quite a bit of momentum right now. So that'll be an interesting matchup to watch Saturday. We get to the first of the western teams playing as fanatic takes on t e e e Sports man if fanatic pulls this off it'll be insane. No doubt about it. This would be the biggest upset of the bracket stage by a pretty considerable margin t o p finished first in the LPL found when the playoffs that's an incredibly impressive feat as the opl is considered the best region for all of League of Legends Esports. T o p e sports are the favorites to win the event according to a few betting places. I checked out a genetic is going to have a very tough task. But if they pull it out expect to see a Reddit thread with 30000 up votes when you wake up on Saturday morning and our final matchup is to Orcs. Most of our listeners will probably recognize Europe's G2 and Korea's Genji. It's two absolute Powerhouse is here gin. She has finally regained form after a restructuring from the days of Samsung Galaxy and G2 went to the finals berth. She ran and ran you're basically all year long if these two teams weren't playing each other. I'd be rooting for them both in their bracket matchup. Unfortunately, one of them has to go home the oddsmakers have G to a slight Edge, but this one should be super close process of the people changing their sleep schedules for this match ups. They truly could not have picked a worse time for me on the west coast, but I'll be trying to catch a few if I can once the dust off of next week. You can expect a recap of the quarterfinals, but

"At home Corona virus testing. It's coming soon to Los Angeles. The city is working with US Department of Health and Human Services, USC and others on a paper strip testing pilot program. The Mayor Eric Garcetti says more than 20,000. Such tests have been procured. The plan is to start with firefighters and possibly some kids who've returned to school. Hopefully sometime around, you know, the last 10 days of October, we will launch that were confident about that will be the first in the country to do this in an extensive way, and we're doing this with national partners to be able to share that information with HHS, The Rockefeller Foundation and other cities who were bringing in tow, hopefully do their pilots shortly thereafter as well.

But proponents argue the easier and cheaper auntie gin test would result in more frequent and widespread testing the summer, Garcetti brought together a team of health experts and others to come up with a paper strip testing program, he said.

Protesters erupt in Kyrgyzstan after parliamentary election
"For the parliamentary election to be annulled because of fears of vote rigging. Of broken into parliament, trashed the offices and apparently thrown an awful lot of paperwork out sort of falls like snow. It's lying all over the place in front of the parliament building. Parts of the building also appeared beyond fire in video circulating flashes come amid allegations of vote rigging in last Sunday's election, directed against President Surround by Gin Beach golf. On DH following the vote, only four parties out of 16 past the 7% threshold for entry into parliament. Three of those parties have close ties to the president. That's the nub of the issue joining us now from the capital. Is Caroline Eden, who has written extensively on the area and is there in place for us now, Caroline. Thank you for joining us. I mean, it's funny seeing the pictures of the protesters basically pulling the railings back and forth and back and forth. I remember seeing almost identical pictures a few years ago, when the previous well it was a revolution. Is this a rerun of the same kind of thing? One of the Out of the tensions that are coming out in society Now, what was really interesting was how quickly this escalated. So it's the same square that you're seeing the city from the Ality Square in central Fish cake. The last two uprisings were in 2005 and 2010. I went along to the protests about four o'clock yesterday. After name on by eight o'clock, things have escalated dramatically. From the point of view. It was you felt it was time to leave. Did you? Did you mean Sometimes the atmosphere is described as a celebration? Was it uglier? So about 44 30. I was there, and I should have taken some video footage on DH watching people waving flags and making speeches on it was sort of tense, but it was okay. Barry is the starting scallop around allergies for eyes watching my phone on and I could see some people were tweeting about rightfully starting to stifle. About a block away, and I thought it's probably a good time to leave. It's a brilliantly sky. Lovely Autumn day, I walked back to my apartment about 10 minutes away from the main square. Andi and this this sort of carried on and on and on. And now the president has urged the opponents to stop public protests. This from the BBC team the moment but he's also said I've ordered security forces not to use firearms. What happens now? The demands of fairly clear they want a rerun of the election. Some politicians as I understand it. Saying Yes, we will rerun the elections. But there's also reports again from the BBC of demonstrations in support of the president elsewhere. So are we seeing once again the split in Kyrgyzstan demographics, the split in society coming to the fore. It's definitely a split, and there are protests and rallies happening in other cities around the country. There is nobody in power at the moment. There's sort of no interim nothing in the Internet. Nothing Forthcoming. We don't really know what's going to happen, but I think what was shocking last night was how quickly things escalated how violent it was so by eight o'clock the sky was flashing on and it was a sort of sound of stun grenades and tear gas on DH. Dumpsters on a sort of street behind me was still smoldering. Eight o'clock this morning. There was probably no live ammunition. But I saw cartridges this morning that a friend of mine Believe probably had metallic bull projects. Alden and the police were using It was extremely violent, and it went on all night. It sort of only calm down about 5 30 this morning, Things went bit quieter, but you know, men running through the streets of patterns. Very, very wild. Very quick, Right. Do the opposition have a figurehead. I mean, there's the call, for example, to release Political prisoners is not quite clear from the reports that we've been seeing here about whether anyone has been let out of jail. But there are people who regarded as political prisoners at the previous president is still sort of in play as a figurehead as well. Does the opposition have a demand beyond the rerun of the election or a figurehead that it can coalesce around? I think it's really unclear at the moment. I mean, what was what was crazy last night was not only that the White House, the presidential building was very contention. Storm disease. He mentioned it start in parks but replace those protesters inside. Thie imprisoned former president Almazbek Survive was also sort of freed. So I think everybody's from the national security unit size and everybody's going to be wondering what's going to happen with him, But it's sort of very uncertain at the moment and will be very interesting to see what happens. In the next 24 48 hours here. The city itself is sort of shuttered, where I am really in the censor people this morning. It very tired and anxious in the past year were littered with These empty cartridges on DH. I think there's just a lot of confusion. Eyes very, very complicated. The political situation here, Caroline listen many, many thanks indeed. Do stay safe as well.

Epic, Spotify, Match, and more team up to fight Apple
"Let's talk about what I think is going to be just a fantastically entertaining battle that is shaping up here. So This all started about a month ago between fortnight their maker, epic games and Apple, where fortnight tried to skirt apples, app store rules and say, Hey, if you pay through our platform on a certain on an apple device and do it in a certain way, it will be cheaper than if you are buying credits through Apple. Apple then responded by kicking epic games by first kicking fortnight off of its APP store, then by kicking everything epic games made off of their app store, which then epic game sought an injunction because epic games makes what's called the unrealized gin, which is the backbone for a whole lot of other games that they don't even make what they licensed the technology out too. That of Junction injunction was upheld. And so now what you have is that other companies, including the streaming giant Spotify and the company that owns tinder Match group have joined a non profit called the Coalition for AP Fairness, the the calf If you Will, and What they are doing is they're saying Look, we object to the way that Apple and other APP store's collect quote excessive commissions from software developers and the reason I think that this is fantastic is if there are three things that you can't mess with in this world. Well, look one of one thing that you can't mess with his liquor. But there's no real liquor sales on the AP story still have to buy it and take delivery at some point. You don't mess with people dating people playing video games or people listening to music. And so now you have the three biggest companies effectively in each of those areas. Going head to head with apple. This is this is everything that I want to see at this point. Yeah, It's such an interesting duel here, because if it were the case where this was our competitive market, then you would see teams groups like this breaking out and saying, OK, well, we're going to form a coalition and we're dropping apple. You won't be able to access our stuff on apple anymore. It's not a competitive environment right? There's two providers of APP stores for these platforms. It's apple and it's Google and so instead They're forming this coalition seemingly Tio go about this one of two ways. Either. We're goingto lobby are politicians or we are going to fight this in court. And if one works, then we'll avoid the other. And if one doesn't work won't go towards the other. And so I continue to believe it will be a very interesting case. I still think that even with this coalition These companies have a pretty big uphill battle against Apple. So there's something really interesting that I was thinking about this back in August. I tweeted about it, but I don't think I ever talked about it on the show. So where do most Phone makers make their money at this point. The hardware makers were too hard. Let's answer this question. Actually do hardware makers aside from Apple? Do phone hardware makers make any meaningful kind of money? No. Apple makes more than 100% of the profits in the hardware phone industry just about everyone else making smartphones whether it's Samsung LG. I think Nokia still makes a few models, you know, like there's only a few games in town. And the reason why is that pretty much No one makes money off the hardware apples, the only company that does and it's because of their scale in their brand and the fact that they condemn and higher prices than their competitors. For inferior phones. And I say this is an apple. Using my phone is not usually is good is an android one. What's really interesting is so Let's say that Apple and Google lose these battles here, okay? And so they can't charge 30% for their app stores anymore. If the only place that you really see money being made from smartphones is through the revenue generated by the APP stores and things along those lines if you reduce the ability for companies to make money there So you actually raised barriers to entry because it reduces the availability of profits for new competitors to come and take like no one sits there and, says G. I want to be a smartphone maker because I could make money on the hardware can't do it. No one could do it. So if you take away the profit making avenue in theory, might you actually see us competition in the space supposed possible? I I guess I would question where do Samsung LG. And I mean, I understand that Google manufacturers its own phones, and I own one of them, So I know that they are making this money on the 30% marketplace mark up. But if your Samsung Or if you're algae, or you're one of these other phone makers. Oh, you know, reasonably being most of what you have. Here is the sale price. They all have these small market places that they are selling their own software on But by and large, they're not participate in the same stuff that Google and apple are there. But I guess so, what I'm getting at is like this isn't going to open up competition firm or different types of app store like now you're not gonna have you're not gonna have like a Samsung app store and Google already has theirs. But you don't have a Samsung and LG and a Nokia. You're not gonna have those springing up because He's not gonna be enough money in it. So Sumers don't want it either on DH. That's the interesting question here is usually if the court finds that Apple and Google are being anti competitive, the normal avenue would be to break them up in some meaningful way. In this case, I don't know if that happens, they treated as a utility or something like that. And what's really interesting here is that the argument from Apple and Google is look, we act as the gatekeepers to make sure that you're not getting anything that's going to harm your phone or anything that's going toe, you know, allow you to commit terrorist acts on your phone or things like that. But I guess here's where I'm going with this. Think about back to the 19 nineties, when any program that you had to put on your computer. You couldn't download it because you had, you know, a 21 of 28 kilobyte Internet connection It would take, you know, 4000 hours to download doom or something like that. Well, it fact fact but so the only Yeah. You two of your family's phone line for like the entire deck. Your phone bill would be like $8000 and no one would be able to call you for the month, which was really cool, but it was fantastic. But so where I'm going with this is when companies made whether it were games were processing APS. You know the original QuickBooks or whatever we had, you know, CD ROM's and disks. Microsoft and Apple didn't go and take a 30% cut of that. To put it on their platform. It was just the company made it and it was compliant with, you know, the the operating system that was running, and so this is kind of a unique case where, hey, you're downloading this and just by virtue of using our store, we're going to take a percentage of revenue. I find that kind of interesting. They're just the comparison and the juxtaposition Because this business model would not have worked in the 19 nineties. You would've run right into that antitrust lawsuit that Microsoft did with Internet Explorer right and the fact the matter is that while other smartphone market places don't really exist, plenty of other digital market places do exist. Such as You know the marketplace for computer games on PC, and they do not charge a 30% mark up there, And I think you could make the same argument that you know these these marketplaces are doing the same thing in terms of protecting their users Hardware.

To me I think that was That's one that people didn't seem to really liked the ending I thought the ending was perfect. Exactly the way should been. and I'm looking forward to tenant, but here's my problem. And this kind of a big problem for me. Christopher Nolan is a firm believer of the movie going experience. He still shoes a lot of stuff on seventy millimeter. you know he's a vivax stop sign. He wants you to go to a movie theater to see it because that's how he makes his movies for movie theater and I get that. That's cool. Except in the middle of fricken pandemic in hundreds of thousands of people are dying and he's pushing movie theaters to reopen as soon as possible. So people can watches movie. I have an issue with that I think that that is amazingly irresponsible. Well So. He's a thing I've got the theme for this week's. This week's episode really is, is it Christopher Nolan pushing it? Yes. He's done interviews. He's actually come out and talk to the press. He's not want this movie to go right to video right? That's well, that's a different point. Yeah. Is he pushing for it to be released now? Yet, or is he just saying whenever it's ready? I want it to be seen in the movies is at the studio is pushing it to Really Been Royce now or is it or is it Christopher Nolan himself saying I wanted to be released. Now I think they're on the same page. Everything, I've read I saw like they're more on the same page I am not so sure and this is where. The problem is it comes down to con-. Bad reporting really is the hulk of these stories is that they want to get this movie theaters. They conflate that with they WANNA, get the phases I've missed quick as quickly as possible. Therefore, they want to get this this movie theaters as quickly as possible, and then you have the story of the theaters who really want to reopen because they're not making any money groped, but they're terrified of putting off people by by making a lot like again the they're being irresponsible. Yeah, and the problem is is that is the way I'm in look hey, we go his his a headline that just kind of under steitz this this is from and says Christopher. Nolan movies. Ranked by with I'd risk my life to see them. That's horrible. Now is horrible. Yeah. I think that going oaks. Is really behind this number experience you know criminal than pushing to have his his movie put out. You know in the middle of a pandemic Christopher, Nolan just trying to kill everybody in the pandemic just for the sake of his movie. That's the narrative that's being put out there I'm just not convinced from the level reporting. I've seen about this because I've seen very few quotes from Christopher Nolan seen a lot of people saying, Oh, you know, and it's certainly true that tenant has had several release dates of all been in the middle of the pandemic. Originally, it was GONNA be June, July and August, and now it September and. You know and certainly you know Nolan is clear that yes, you said. He feels the these movies can't be can't be put straight to video there had to be seen in the theater, but whether he's pushing. A weather in Warner brothers pushing it just not make clear in these stories and then I think that's Reporting friendly. Well, that doesn't surprise me but here's the thing. In here, the broader question. Is it the is this the end of movie theaters. it depends how long it goes. Awful. However. Here's the thing for. How long have we been talking? We can go years back on. Tech Fan. Where were you and I have had brief conversations About video on demand and how you know it's it. We think forget putting the pandemic site without that. That's a better way to enjoy movies for a lot of people. It's a lot less expensive. Yeah. Your in the. Privacy of your home, you can pause to use the bathroom. It's just a better experience now with stuff like sixty, five inch televisions in four K. under five hundred dollars Y-, you're not getting a sub-standard viewing experience at home, and this isn't people watching on their phone. They're watching on big screens at home with really decent audio. So at what point is a movie theater just simply done because more and more people are going to say you know what I'm just going to wait till comes out on video that's been going on since a vhs grace started and that hurt the movie but no eight has an no, it has i. Know that situation has been going on I remember very early on the movie theaters chains being concerned about the impact on viewer figures and the uncertainty I think during the nineties, there was a general. Steady decrease in in in overall viewing figures, they kinda turned it round towards the end of the nineties. And and really mid-2000s onwards then exploded again because they've started doing good movies that well, these big these big ticket popcorn movies that people want to see The the the question yet does not. So to me, there's no question that people enjoy going to see these big movies at theaters. Yeah. The difficulty is, is that Do they enjoy? That experience marched they prepared to risk their health for it and to me the question is independent of the movies themselves and is more about the movie theaters and what's going on at the moment. Basically while cove it is is around you compaq a movie theater and I don't think it's going to happen. Moving forward. No I'd I can agree with you. It's clearer and clearer to be honest if it's clear to me right from the beginning but certainly the what's been happening the last couple of months, which is a loss of for various different reasons whether the economic with the political with an ideological the right around the world, we've seen a phases of countries that have done a lockdown and then have released wrote lockdown and some of them have. Released lockdown in different ways some of them have just basically ignored the problem gone away like in your country A, my country they've been kind of conservative in that sort of thing, but it doesn't matter where they've done or how they've done it in pretty much every company no matter how they dealt with code. As soon as they've released their measures, we've seen a bounceback of the virus, which is obvious because it's not an away. And this is a contagious virus, and as soon as people start mingling more than the virus spread small. No matter what. What what controls you put in place the the only real way of stopping the virus from spreading keeping people upon so. Movie theaters face a problem because their business is packing people together and I I don't think even if they they had perfect moss compliance and with social distancing yet, they would be able to get enough bums on seats on a regular basis for movies to be particularly viable. and so the reality is, is that while this crisis continues to go on in it but to me, it's becoming clear that this is this is a thing we're gonNA be living with for a few years at least. Is. Community theaters operate in a way that that they can stay open and I don't think like can I think the? The mechanics of the movie industry a look at the the reason they're pushing hard for tenant. I'm talking about Warner Brothers now Christopher Nolan. Spent two, hundred, million dollars on that. You're a big chunk of that money is marketing and they need to get it back and that means they need to have this. These comedies big opening weekends with a long tail and.

Like I've been at ninety, six six. Ninety, six, ninety, seven, one, the the I read I read something A. Couple of a couple of months back. They said actually they think that the Average, shall we use his wrong because it went when it was when when it was first taken, the thermometers went as accurate. They either win is accurate and also the changes in temperature that everyone goes through during the day wouldn't really understood so. You know nowadays I find that unless. I mean, they weren't even talk about you being favorite unless it's like at least one half degree centigrade above the national averages But this was one of the things yesterday's that Charlotte had had a temperature. So they were very cautious with as they. She had a separate one, they put anybody. Even though is irony assessment triage and all that they they put on the separate ward and a separate room for anybody who had a temperature in cases of Covid here say they went mixing all the people good. One of those people that you don't have code, but you've got an infection like she does now you're put on the word with other people covet now no this this was this was the yeah. But the when it was award, it's all separate rooms. It's Ashi on award way share that was precisely the thing normally in accent in the UK, you go to a Sadler as you've seen them on the other side, those cubicles with the curtains that come around but you know actually physically separated from the other people. That's where you would normally go for accent emergency that because of covid they base anyone in temperature goes into a world where we have separate rooms for everybody. And and that basically Yukon can't go anywhere until I tell you can go. So you all complete gaslight did not have to se. `Ok never seen all spills cleaned. Enough spent a of time in all spills with my kids over the years and. The. Cleaning regime has really been up which is. A good thing that be they should awards been not really. Really clean here in the US. Yeah. The no hidden here. Are they they switch trim? They switch from the nurses cleaning them about twenty five years ago to contract cleaners and the way contract cleaning. Gaza courses the goes to the contract cleaning with the lowest price and then you get the people who are. The least interested in doing a good job and so you end up with lousy cleaning. It's A. Cleaning and hospitals always been a very serious thing here in the US. I'm sure there are some older hospitals that aren't the best but most of the hospitals that I've ever been in. I've always been exceptionally clean. Yeah. So anyway on. Cutlass. Let's talk about some geeky stuff. This is Let's stick with Kobe situation going on. This is kind of bothered me. There's a there's a move new movie coming out. called. Tenant. And had spy Christopher Nolan looks very interesting and let's be honest. Christopher Nola makes great movies. No question yeah. I don't WanNa say he's the modern day Steven Spielberg I. Don't think that's quite what he does. But he does make blockbusters in their the thinking man's movies for the most part. They tend to I mean he's much more involved in the rising creation process and just being the director wrote and so he's project for Star and yes, he does have stuff that tends to be. The cerebral or even if it's popcorn in's taken, it has it has a depth to that many other movies don't have and obviously you know he's responsible for the Batman.

But dunker catch Lee kind of did something a little bit similar earlier in the they present he present the whole story of Dunkirk from three people's viewpoints and every time you see them, it's kind of moving in real time and the interlinking between different peoples very cleverly done.

"Typhoid fever so probably to help the situation, none of those things now. But catch on. They did and the Spanish basically had a monopoly on the proven crops, so they made a mint. Legend. Has It that it was sometimes referred to as bark from the fever tree? I see I see. Yeah, meanwhile throughout the seventeen hundreds, your would go a little bit nuts about sparkling mineral waters I taken from natural springs, and then artificially produced through various carbonation processes. It was a health trend and also physics fun but these healthy sparkling beverages were sometimes called Tonics and Johann Jacob. Yes what that SCHNAPP. founded the first carbonated water manufacturing company in Geneva in seventeen eighty three. Sparkling water aside in eighteen twenty after decades of scientists searching for the compound incident Kona that makes it such an effective medicine. These two French pharmacists by the names of do it for me Anne Pierce, Joseph Pedophilia and Joseph Benami, Kevin Tall. I think. That's all see. That's a lot better than I would have done. the the two of them isolated a clean and set up a factory for its extraction in Paris. And this made it possible to eat slightly less tree bark, while attempting to not get malaria, which share a lot of people were very fond of. Meanwhile as this was happening, the Spanish colonies in south. America were fighting for their independence, and afterward they would attempt to control the lucrative sin Shona Industry by limiting or flat out outlawing the expectation of seeds and cuttings. Plants, but despite the price, all of the conquering empires, including the British were on board with Sin Kona, and Queen and used it to start a radical malaria in Europe throughout the eighteen hundreds, however, malaria was still huge problem in the tropics which is largely where the conquering empires were getting their conquer on because of sugar and other stuff sugar and this all came to a head in British run India during the early eighteen hundreds of people were taking daily doses of cleaning to prevent malaria because it's so bitter, folks were starting to mix it with sparkling water and a little bit of sugar, and thus tonic water was born. which brings us to the GIN and tonic? I it brings us to a word from our sponsor. I. I'm Bertam Date Thurston. I'm a writer, activist and comedian. I wrote a book called how to be blast gave a Ted talk about white people, calling the cops on black people for no good reason and feel like we're having a moment in the US right now. You probably feel as to. When officer Derek, Chev and killed George Floyd something in America broke. Where this moment goes! We can't say yet, but right now. Something big is happening involving race and in particular policing. So I'm going to try to explain it. From, the covid connection to WHO's allowed to protest to what de-fund the police actually means. When. Mitt Romney the man who tried to keep Barack Obama's. That can turn away from. US. Join the black lives matter March. WHEN NASCAR FANS, the confederate flag when Donald Trump of all people encourages cops not to joke people. We're having a moment. You can listen to. We're having a moment on the iheartradio APP apple podcast and wherever you get your podcast. Back! Thank you sponsor. Okay now that we've got a GIN. We've got our tonic. Where did the idea of mixing them come from? Well, it was kind of Mary poppins situation. A spoonful sugar helps the medicine go down. Around Eighteen, twenty five British soldiers in India started adding Jin to their daily required Quinine, tonic water, and also as an added bonus, the British news squeezed in some lime juice to prevent scurvy, and this is the nickname for the produce slimy comes from. Oh, I! Know I should have guessed that a long time ago. I feel very silly now. Okay, that's fine. by the eighteen forty S. the population in India was using in fact within seven hundred tonnes. In Kona per year to fight to fight malaria there, wow. And in eighteen, Fifty, eight, the British, took over governance of India from the British east India. Company following the violent support revolution also called the Indian meet Ni a bunch of other names, too, but those are. Those cover the basis with more British soldiers and their families, in India than ever the demand for tonic water increased, which led to harass bonds creation, the first commercial tonic water that same year, which you can still buy I've never heard of it means, and that led to Schweppes the Indian Queen Tonic in eighteen seventy, and both of these went on to find success outside of India in Britain as well, meanwhile Charles Ledger. Ledger an Englishman who became an pokka farmer in Peru, smuggled Sin Kona seeds out of Peru to his brother. During the eighteen sixties because at the time, it was still illegal to export the trees. Are the seeds break? He actually had a history of smuggling. He also smuggled a pokka out of the country. It was just a smuggler, apparently better at it than Han Solo. He didn't get caught. That's right. How Vergamo, GIN and tonic episode. anyway the British government would not by these these seeds that he that he smuggled out, but the Dutch government would end did and they said at plantations on Java which was one of their colonial outposts. And so by World War One the Dutch pretty much dominated the coining trade, and by the end of the century they controlled ninety five percent of the world's supply. That's quite quite large percentage. This epitaph reads by the way Charles. Ledger he gave coining to the world. And the GMT was also thought to play a role in world. War Two when the Japanese forces took over Java and all those in coconut plantations which equalled most of the world's supply in Nineteen Forty Two oh, according to Amy Stewart's book, the drunk botanist to protect absolutely want to read. The last American plane out of Indonesia had four million crain's seats on board, but to no immediate avail because the trees would take too long to grow to be of any use during the war. But that didn't stop the allies from planting trees in Africa same time putting scientists to developing a synthetic replacement. And both succeeded to this day Africa grows natural coining and the. Synthetic version is used in some prescriptions because it's still used as an anti malarial. And for some other things, but that's different episode. Entirely it is, it is that's pretty much the history of the GIN and tonic. We obviously. As always had to shorten it especially. We didn't talk about how you still thin or can it do that?

"Kinda. There was another Jackson they also people found a way around that one, and then in seventeen, thirty, four Judas, to four, killed her baby, and sold the baby's clothes to buy GIN which resulted in the Third Gen Act Prohibiting Cell Jen over two gallons, and enacting a stiff tariff of one pound per gallon on top of the fifty pound annual license fee required to sell it. and. This did a good job of putting legitimate sellers out of business and replacing them with corner sellers who peddled dangerous, cheap stuff that blinded or killed people because we all know, it's always really good when you when a government tries to crack down on. Several. People really like. It and the fourth didn't act also rewarded and protected informants. People who would tell the police give the police information about who was selling engine. WHO WAS DRINKING GIN? But informants had to know the name of the renter of a property selling gin for the authorities to act on their tip. So Captain Dudley Bradstreet. Captain Dudley Bradstreet. He sounds like a an upstanding gentleman, not really probably not He circumvented this in seventeen, thirty, eight by having a friend Rent House in London where he nailed the sign of a cat in the window and hit a pipe underneath the cat's paw. Catch Bradstreet got some food? Thirteen pounds worth of GIN and barricaded himself inside. After he had spread the word that the next day. Gen would be available from a cat in the alley. Be Your. Customers Place Koren's over the cat's mouth and the captain slowly pour gin from underneath the cat's paw and he did this for three months before copycats. Cost Him to move on but despite what you might think and what I thought, this probably isn't where old Tom Gin comes from, but it did lead to the creation of posts and mews houses where any WS Leeann. News idea yeah, yeah, where a customer wanting to buy Jen from a vendor in some secluded space with say, Puss and the vendor would say news. And reveal drawer, the customer would put their money in which vendor took and then pushed it back out, but now magically it had. MAGIC MAGIC! A great kind of Bajic But, but but the but the people would were not having this. No, they wanted their Jin they hit, and by seventeen forty three people were rioting in protest to these tariffs, and despite the Tariffs Londoners were consuming a seven million gallons of Jin annually by seventeen fifty. Jin Informers were killed on the streets, sometimes by mobs who. Seventeen, hundred social historian Thomas. Felling wrote in a political pamphlet about the destruction Jin was wreaking on what he called the quote, inferior people and he wrote quote, a new kind of drunkenness unknown. Our ancestors is lately sprung up among us, and which, if not put to a stop, will infallibly destroy a great part of the inferior people. The drunkenness I hear intend is by this poison called Jin the principal. It's parentheses if it may be so called of more than one hundred thousand people this troubles. Goodness. So, yes, the government kept trying the GIN act of seventeen, fifty one up to the costs of operation for Jin stores, either due to that or more likely the rising grain costs translated to hire jen costs for customers that encouraged them to switch to the cheaper beer. Consumption of GIN did lesson, but it was still miss. or Mr Popularity as spirits go in Britain. And I just want to mention here that there's a terrifying picture about the immoral stuff. Caused by Jin called Gin Lane by William Hogarth and I stared at it, discovering one horrifying thing after another fray long time on my sort a beef eater. Go go look it up if you're looking for something disturbing. It's oddly mesmerizing, terrifying will- William Hogarth Gin Lane. Check it out. And the negative connotation Jin earned during this gin. Craze is still around to this day, and in phrases like joint, drunk soaked bathtub, gin. Gin Mills in I've never heard the term June drunk by the way, but apparently this is becoming. Mean our emotional when you're drunk, okay? So that's that's Jin yeah. Now we should talk for a moment about tonic. We should. The other key ingredient. Yes, so the tonic that we know today, a sugar sweetened carbonated soda that's flavored with the bitter Tangy Queen is also a thing that originated as a medicine and specifically as a treatment for malaria. Now. Queen is a compound that occurs in nature, specifically in the bark of a large shrub and or small tree, called the Kona which is native to the indies mountains in South America. Unlike the same, Kona Malaria is not native to south. America the Spanish brought it with them during their invasion and colonization, starting with Christopher Columbus in the late fourteen hundreds. He's GONNA show every episode one day one day Christopher. And Malaria was a really huge problem throughout Europe at that time where it was generally called the Agu. Up through the mid sixteen hundreds. No one knew what to do about it. Folks would come down with this mysterious flu like fever that would come and go and would frequently cause complications leading to death. And a lot of people were doing this although it didn't help that the medicine in Europe was still focused on the humor's and popular wisdom was that you should bleed or purge a patient with issue. Other potential carriers where astrology of course and reportedly this one's my favorite, throwing patient headfirst into a Shrub, and encouraging him to disentangle himself faster than the disease could disentangle itself. How the disease disentangle it so because it's a it's A. It's like a little spirit that's hanging out with you and so if you can get up faster than the disease than you leave the disease in the Shrub, I see totally illogical completely. I don't know why I haven't tried this eye to get someone to throw me ahead first. Some I've got any kind of like cold. That won't go also Kyle. No ways, but in the sixteen thirty s though an Indian monk. Antonio Columbia I think wrote home about the powdered bark of this Peruvian tree that was working wonders for the treatment of Ako. Historians think that probably native peoples developed the secure in the couple hundred years they'd been dealing with malaria, and passed it on to the Europeans, but since I've been monk was getting excited about it. A Pope innocent at the tenth, had some of his people look into it, and over the next hundred years, or so it had become a major European import and a widespread treatment and preventative for malaria, because Queen kills the parasite that causes malaria. It turns out bully. Took a while for the British to catch on. Though because it's associations with the Catholic. Church freaked out a whole lot of Protestants. Oliver Cromwell's supposedly refused treatment with it, leading to his death in the sixteen fifties, although he does also had.

Off I know a canned cocktails in general are rising in popularity, especially in the US and Japan I'm sure you've seen all of those Seltzer which I am still a little bit perturbed by but that's that's okay. apparently after an episode of fleabag aired that featured leading characters, drinking canned gin and tonics, specifically from marks and Spencer marks and Spencer, GIN and tonic sales spiked twenty four percent. That's excellent. I love that I must have this experience. Immediately. Right Oh it's beautiful and I'm also seeing a lot of buzz about pink gin and tonic out of the UK and Pink Gin being Amgen with Angusta bidders added. Pets, because there's also.

I'm struggling to imagine meant going particularly well in that combination of flavors but But you know. I'm happy if people are happy.

"Good evening and welcome to the baugh tonight. We're going to do something a little different. I'm not going to mix you a particular cocktail but instead walk you through one particular spirit and what better spirit to start with the Chin before there was Jin the Dutch distilled. Another juniper base spirit known as he ain't never in English you might call this gender or Geneva you can still buy it today in both an old style and a more modern style. That is closer to GIN. This drink was originally given to Dutch. Troops as medicinal ration and gained popularity among English troops when fighting Louis the fourteenth France by the time William of Orange became king of England a shorter name. Jin was being used by the English soldiers. It is also responsible for the term Dutch courage as a shot of giannetta before battle gave the Dutch soldiers courage to fight. It was in London though. The Jin found its home with lax distillation laws in the late seventeenth and early eighteenth centuries. The British capital experienced a gin craze and London dry. Gin was eventually born. Cheap readily available. Jin led to drunkenness in the streets as well as underage drinking as Jin fully took hold gin joints allowed women drink alongside men and it was thought that this led to mothers abandoning their children and earning it the nickname mother's ruin at this point the equivalent consumption was two pints of Jin for every Londoner William hogarth created a set of prince cold beer street and gin lane at this time to showcase the evil of Jin compared to the happiness of beer. The continuing gin craze was having negative effects on the local populace with rising crime and violence. Leading to a movement to stop the prevalence of GIN. The following poem by Townley was presented with the print to help convince people to change the Law Jin cursed with fury fraught makes Human Race. Apprai- attended by deadly draft and steals our life away virtue and truth driven to despair. It's rage compels to fly but cherishes with hellish care theft murder. Perjury Damned Cup. That's on the vitals. Praise that liquid fire contains which madness to the heart conveys and rolls it through the veins to down on the evils of GIN. The government tried passing multiple laws. It wasn't until the so-called gin act in seventeen fifty one that they managed to curtail the problem. It prohibited selling to unlicensed merchants and put restrictions and high prices on retail licenses as an alternative t was encouraged as was drinking for men. Jin however began to be exported to the world on the back of the British Empire and the British Navy despite the ubiquity of London Dry Gin. He doesn't have a protected status. You of Brown's London Gin. A very specific on both the purity of the alcohol ninety-six percent alcohol by volume initially and then only from agricultural products and it was also have minimum. Ab thirty seven point. Five percent in the end product. If you're interested in the other provisions check the show notes for a link to laws but importantly none of these provisions covers the distillation location so you can happily stale London gin in Madrid all Luxembourg and still call it London Gin. The dry is optional. As far as protected Jin's go in the UK. It will likely surprise you that there's only one. Pm Jin while the distillation rules very similar to those of London. Gin they must be produced in the port town of Plymouth. It's not a surprise. That Plymouth with its links to the navy has famously good gin. At the moment the only distiller is the black fries. Distillery THAT MAKES THE FAMOUS PLYMOUTH. Gin Aptly named indeed one of my earliest reviewers is of the Plymouth distillery tour. I heartily recommend anyone visiting the South West of England with a few hours to spare further afield another protected. Jin takes us to Germany. Despite my many travels across Germany I only encountered Stein hak-jun last year as part of a Roth a generous leaving gift. I was presented with a delightful bottle of sixty year. Old Schlichter Jin. Despite being juniper heavy Jin it has a much smoother taste than London dry and no citrus flavor at all there are currently only two manufacturers and operation. But it's definitely a unique. Jin that is worth seeking out. The smoothness makes it drinkable on. Its own or is a good base for the more ingredients. Heavy gin based cocktails. Although I don't think I'd waste the sixty year old variant cocktail. It's definitely worth enjoying on. Its own as I'm doing in the BAA rights now in more recent is you will have seen a veritable boom in the production of Jin while. Gmt's have never truly left us. And John has been poorly.

"It's easy to think that the current Gina Boom in Britain or GINA's are some want to call. It would have been going on for long. But actually it's a prissy recent phenomenon. And the Genie Brent zips Matthias much to do with it seeps. Matthias been celebrating. Its tenth birthday this year a bit earlier I met Sam goals worth go phones roof. The distillery and mustard is dealer jared brown sam start by explaining how he and he's business partner. Fairfax Hall decided to launch the company. The idea that came when I was living in America and I saw this amazing so kroft movement. This sort of seismic activity of consumers looking very differently differently. You know how they can seem they wanted to see where it was made and how it was made and actually bite by whom it was made. That was really really important. And then you come back to London. We were from Fairfax and I grew up together in Coleman he was even the US during different thing me and we we. We look back at London. which was the home of GIN is historical birthplace of gin and there was only really one single brand operated distillery and we were so convinced that consumer movements of how people on picked brands and shows brands that mindset would exist in in London Magen an having wonders theory? That was not good enough. That was never going to satisfy a need state in London pundits who were desperate for anticipate and storytelling. And so with that remind thefts and I said Bite trying to establish GIN distillery again but this time having yet accessible having people come in and learn about how jen is made because I think it was the time a great gap of knowledge I think from what Jin was and how it was made and so we quit our jobs we sold flats and we went all in on that and so we went to the government. We said we would like licensed to set up a GIN distillery and they said no exact with is that you AH. We couldn't believe it you know by. Then we'd jobs with salt flats we all in and so we have a very quickly screw around nothing there's the adage of you know if there's ever been a really good good idea and business someone's already had it before you and I actually. That was definitely the case with Jim. I see but they haven't pursued that. No they've taken. That known walked away so there was a law that said you couldn't own a gin distiller in London. Unless you're still was bigger than eight hundred hectolitres which was Y- prohibitively large. So we set might on a you know a year and a half journey of trying to overturn that law which long story short we did. We managed I get up. MP's and and the light to change and in the two thousand and seven Finance Act. The no change wants theory and SIP. Smith at that point became the first GIN distillery in London for two hundred years. And that was when we met jared and has been all sort of true north ever since well if you recap what's been happening in the last ten years they would have be the biggest milestones. The I was getting up and running and getting a still in London when we began. It was just three of us in a tiny west London garage. Export was outside the twenty-five distribution moped. We blew our AD budget on the sticker for that moped. Oh ped- the early customers still remember Sam arriving case of Gin one helmet under the other and to go from that to being in fifty five countries. Now still fifty these county but yeah I mean I think that was a massive milestone. We won some huge awards awards along the way I certainly look at Cyp Smith and I think when I think about what's really distinctive and stand out about it you know notwithstanding the the gin which we've always made it used to be in the way it should be. It's our team. I think we've been very good at developing a really amazing team. Kroft agenda tell stories. I think that's been a prolific also. So what we've seen. The last ten years has been a massive massive boom when it comes to the gene industry not only in the UK but internationally enormously. You've been playing a big part in this. Why do you think this happened now? I think there are lots of different influences and forces that have moved in category. Ready to where it is today I think first of all I referenced that seismic activity of consumers that shift in the way they buy and the motivations for you know taking away the layers of the onion nion to understand really what's in Nebraska. Why brand exists in? Its reason for being. I think that's part of it. You've got bartenders prolific. Botton's Auden's which is now I think since we start really become a true true recognized profession whereas I think you know twenty years ago it wasn't quite as exactly now. It is prolific global profession and quite rightly. Say it's an art form. And I think the direction which bartenders mixologist. Call Them. What you will they have pushed the boundaries of Gina's which way that people are really interested interested curious and excited about it? I I think there was a pent up. Need Jin to do more in premium is. This was exactly why it was good timing. I'm for us. Frankly when we came along people were getting bored with vodka. The Vodka Soda was ubiquitous. Drink and people ready to actually taste something and so to come. Along with eight true uncompromising craft gin made as it used to be made on a corporate still was is a huge leap forward from vodka. Now there were. I believe twelve distilleries making Jim. In Britain at that time primarily on the basis of the SIP Smith legal work. There is now a thousand brands of GIN in Britain. That's here it seems huge until you look at Scotland where I believe. There's a ten two thousand really recognized labels whiskey out of the total of one hundred thousand so Jin used to have at one point about equal standing on the shelf with risky when we started. Walk into a bar. There'd be fifty whiskeys and forge ins and the bartender would immediately CEO. We don't need another Jin. Considering the equal standing that existed back in the day. Do you think there's a risk that people may decide to go for something else. Leave Jin again yeah. Well I think there's always there's always a risk and I think I think what's actually happening today that consumers actually have more of a repertoire of drinks that they drink neurologist. Okay I'm around drinking or a drink actually what you people share even worse. Give it a round that actually in turtle in aggregate drinking and consuming last alcohol. But what they're doing is expanding their range that broadening their mine and trying to get more experiences. What what they drink? And I think that's what six month fits in so perfect because as more people come in they're accepting Jin as part of that said and we tell such a great story. I think people looking for stories exactly the way. So you've been sharing stories as William you've been sharing inspiration as part of your ten th anniversary celebrations. You released a book. It's called tape one hundred gene cocktails only three ingredients. Whatever made Sir Takeaways for of that book this goes back to the fundamentals tolls of creating great drinks? You don't need a load of odd ingredients. You just need the right ingredients in the right proportion Russian and that's what this book is about. It goes beyond just having recipes. It goes into really the fundamentals of what it takes to create a great drink of balancing these ingredients of working them and also of creating personal drinks out of this foundation of primarily great classics. But also some of the new drinks that have come up within the distillery. What kind of evolution has there been when it comes to say Jean Coke folktales? How experimental do these recipes for example? Get oh I would say that you'll find some very experimental drinks in here but you'll find that they are the ones that were very good. Perfection is achieved in the words of Antoine to Sun Tzu Career author of the Little Prince. Perfection is achieved. Not when there's nothing more to add when there's nothing left to take away and that's really what this book is about is finding great drinks and some non in traditional ingredients as a historian of drink of course a lean toward a lot of the traditional as well can make samples. Oh the bee's knees cocktail tale a favorite example. Gin Lemon honey. That's it right now if you look on Wikipedia it says that it was invented by a speakeasy bartender tinder. In the states during prohibition to cover up the taste of bad gin which is what drink writers rate when they don't want to just say I have no clue. The truth. Truth is that drink was invented in Paris in the nineteen twenties in a women's only bar by a widow named Mrs. Jj Jj Brown of Boulder and Paris. It took me while to figure out who she was. It turns out that she was immortalized on Broadway in nineteen sixty and by Hollywood in nineteen sixty four as the unsinkable. Molly Brown married to a poor gold miner and Colorado. WHO's the largest gold vein in history? And then she survived the titanic and was partying on both continents. Amazing amazing stories. Amazing just one of the stories that you'll find in this book. I tell you what I was thinking about. Marcus this book really is for people like me. North jarred he may have been the principal author of it but actually did book is designed for people who can't really make that sophisticated a cocktail. I really can't and so you know this is sort of the Jamie Oliver of the GIN cocktail world weather. So it's really simple. The ingredients never far away from you and you can good at home making it and actually I think these days things do need to be made simple for people use again. I speak very much for me. This book is designed for me in Kapit Guide to making. We'll talk about what people want. And what people need How do you see the future of the industry but what is happening over there? Do people want different. I kind of James. What did they actually want? It vary from one country to another. Will I think it does. I think with globalization nights all come a little bit smaller and say the influences of very prolific Olympic. Do think this I think there's a real danger in the world of Jin. Globally about where it goes from here I think the different names of Jin methodologies Adagios of genetic ingredients that are going into Jin threaten the very fabric of gin and how it is perceived and whether there becomes sort of fatigue in the way some people look at it at the moment. We're not seeing that and actually I think what we're hearing. You know jared and I have the the amazing provisionally travel well talking about listening into retailers and consumers alike who are saying you know juvenile would be a part of my life I. It does get confusing. Can you help me navigate gin and actually we we always bring them back to our classic uncompromising London Dry Gin which is the sort of the base an epicenter of all jains and actually helps tell the story of what a True Chin is and actually I think sometimes the category does and should be simplified. A little bit to really help understand what it is would it really stands for because I think there are some risks there Jin's that are risking people. Go Walk Him on. What is Jin today? And they're all that many rules and regulations around it so there's some self regulation people talking about bringing in. We will never as a brand SIP. Smith ever ever compromise from our original of making gender wage in used to be made and the way it should be made and so I think people will always I hope have faith that in with will be one of those beacons shining lights out that I to help navigate a really exciting category and now zips me this available in about fifty five countries. What kind of future planets do you have? Is it about taking over new markets or digging deeper in the existing once or you know if we had planned to sit down here ten years later and say we wanted to be in fifty countries. We didn't globalization. I think just the way direction the world has gone has taken us. They're smaller and it's easy to get products now being forced reading letting we'd ever thought about being the size that we are all within reach that we are. It's awesome that we are and it's really exciting. I think for us. What we must never do is take off ally of the ball? We've never compromise. Never changed the way we make it even though we've got these really exciting growth plants. I think it's about being deeper more meaningful and establishing shing really distinctive points in people's lives to tell stories of general.

I mean, you've got really problematic riots part of that mold culture that they're also frayed they're just so frayed of London, Judith, the saying that it's become this mass place. It's like half a million to three quarters of a million over the period. We're looking at this. I fifty years the business world of big cities. It's sucking people up. They know that there's more people dying than it being born. They don't know why they they're blaming gin and they blame Jin all this disorder. And it is certainly true that after the seventeen thirty six act, which literally raises the price of a license of fifty pounds totally beyond the capacity of anyone at all, really other than the big distillers on interested in paying that kind of money and they use informers to tone people. And so what you have been over the next few years is informed as being beaten up. People being let off juries refusing to convict and essentially by sixteen by seventeen thirty eight. The a dead letter is they. Can't get anybody to act on it. The justices won't do it. They're afraid of what might happen.

I, I think we forget the poor were not that all the poor do not have a miserable life every day. You know, there is a pleasure in this pleasure in the sociability over a pleasure in the materiality of it. So the we forget that in the pro the reason we forget it is because we look at a picture like gin lane and often people see as a photograph what was going on as it goes apps.
