So saint patrick's day night in boston march seventeenth into the eighteenth. Nineteen ninety two men dressed as police officers. Ring the doorbell for the security desk at the isabella stewart gardner museum and are buzzed in pretty quickly by the guard on duty and without much effort are able to lower the guard away from the security desk away from the only panic button leading to the outside world and are able to can him have him call down the other security guard who is on the rounds and you know in just a matter of minutes. Basically taking control over the whole museum fairly effortlessly it seems like The protocol was that that it shouldn't be that easy but it turned out to be that easy and the two men obviously turn out to. Police officers handcuffed the the two guards and tie them up down in the basement of the museum before going on and eighty one minute excursion through the museum and stealing thirteen pieces of art including a few masterworks.

Ask Geoffrey: Chicago's Old Passenger Rail Stations
"Chicago's old passenger railroad stations for decades acted as the city's front door where people from all over the country arrived seeking a better life or just the thrills of the big city. Jeffrey bayer takes us back to the golden age. Rail travel in this week's ask geoffrey. Hey geoffrey good to see you paris all right so we have a question from larry gardner of skokie he says. Could you do a story on the old train stations that once stood in downtown chicago. Well of course we can. There is as you mentioned. The the late nineteenth century the early twentieth century this was the golden age of rail travel when people traversed the country on trains. And of course right at the center there at the hub of it all was chicago. It's hard to believe. But as recently as the nineteen sixties there were six passenger train stations in downtown chicago today. All passenger trains that come into the city from beyond the suburbs. Go through the last one standing union station which is now owned by amtrak. It's designed including this now. Demolished concourse was right along the river there and the colonnaded main building which is still standing right behind it. In this picture of those things recall the grandeur of rail terminals in those glory days of designed to wow the traveler of the way many airports do today met with. Certainly the goal of another neoclassical designed terminal. Check this one out owned by the chicago and north western railway you know classical buzzards and it stood at what is today. Ogilvie transportation center which is operated by metra. That station included ornate concourses. Waiting rooms even dedicated spaces for barbers and hairdressers. People traveling across the country The chicago north western railway traced its roots to chicago's very first railroad. The galena chicago union established back in eighteen forty eight. By chicago's first mayor actually will be ogden. Certainly the golden age of travel there and then another key player. Of course you hear references pop culture all the time the illinois central oh absolutely That country that company billed itself as the main line of mid america. It was a dominant player. Both in passenger and freight rail their main passenger terminal was called central station once stood just just south of grand part right on the lakefront there. The railroad built this mammoth terminal in one thousand nine hundred three in part to accommodate the influx of visitors. That were expected for the world's fair that year you'll notice almost all of these terminals have clocks or clock towers so people hurrying to catch trains didn't have to fumble around for their pocket watches that of course they had watches it. All central station was also an important point of entry for many african americans who came to chicago from the south during the great migration with like so many of its contemporaries central station met the wrecking ball. In this case in the mid one thousand nine hundred seventy s amtrak diverted there trains to union station but there is still an active platform. Eleven street serving the metra electric line and i gather it's the inspiration for that residential development around their central station. Which i believe. Richard m daley lived there for a while and not to be confused with grand central station. Of course right. That's right and yes. We had our own grand central station. here in chicago. Not new york's wasn't the only one ours was at harrison and wells on the western edge of the loop. Read along the river for about eighty years. It was just north of if you know we're river city's development is today Traffic declined grand central after world war. Two this photo with the board of trade there in the background was taken in nineteen sixty seven at the end of the stations life. It was torn down in nineteen seventy one and this is one of several places in the city. were abandoned. Railroad land is being redeveloped during construction of the new development on this old site buried. Stones from grand central station were actually unearthed and they've been re purposed for a river walk. One chicago train station of actually is still standing So in addition to union station is dearborn station. South loop although of course. It's on train station anymore. You can see its clock tower visible all the way from the north side of lube looking south down on dearborn but what happened to the top of that clock tower. Take a look at this early photo. And you'll notice it once had this huge wooden flemish roof on top of it but in one thousand nine hundred twenty two. It caught fire. Look at these incredible photos from the scene as crowds gathered. Luckily firefighters were able to save the building. But but not that tower roof. I the nineteen seventy s. Most of the train. Shed was demolished but the facade and portions of the terminal were preserved as part of a mall. Serving printers row by the building is still called dearborn station. In fact peres as you just pointed out. Many old stations live on in the names of new developments of the one. You mentioned central station. Just south of grand park word. Mayor daley used to live and then a new apartment building at harrison and wells is using the grim central name
The Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum Heist
"The isabella stewart gardner. Museum was not surprising when he founded by isabella stewart gardner. She was a very wealthy woman who lived in boston and had a very large art collection. She was known to be very eccentric. Woman who would float the upper-class conventions of the boston elite she famously showed up to a concert of the boston symphony orchestra in one thousand. Nine hundred twelve with a white headband. That said oh you. Red sox and that was a really big deal at the time and caused much clutching of pearls and fainting. She was born into money was married into money and inherited a lot of money. She travelled extensively around the world and purchased are wherever she went. She established the museum in one thousand nine hundred three and worked with museum to curate. Its collection for twenty one years until her death in one thousand nine twenty four at the age of eighty four. She left the museum three point. Six million dollars will and she stipulated that nothing. In the museum's collection should ever be sold. Nothing new should ever be acquired. Any artworks shouldn't even be moved from the walls. She wanted everything to remain exactly as it was by the nineteen eighties. The building housing the collection was getting a bit rundown and security was very lax in one thousand. Nine hundred to the fbi worn the museum of a plan for our robbery but it only resulted in minor upgrades to the security system. The museum had no security cameras installed inside and most importantly the only had a single button with which they could call. The police which was located on the desk of one of the security guards other museums used a system where guard head to call the police every hour to notify them that everything was alright. If a call wasn't made then the police would come and the guards were also paid barely minimum wage. These facts would all become important. The robbers arrived just after midnight on sunday morning. On march eighteenth march seventeenth by the way is saint patrick's day. Which is one of the biggest holidays in boston. And this year. It was happening on a two men who were dressed as policemen there. Witnesses who saw them on the street but they assume that they were police. Never thought anything of it. There were two guards on duty that night. One twenty three years old and one thousand five years old from one of them. It was literally their first night on the job. Museum procedure dictated that one of the guards would patrol the building while the other said at the desk with the button which could notify the police at one twenty. Am the two men in police. Uniforms buzz the side entrance and they said they were there because of disturbance call. The guards didn't know of any disturbance call but they looked like real cops and it was saint patrick's day so something might have happened so they let the police in the men in police. Uniforms told the guard at the desk. Call the other guard down which he did one of the supposed cops then said to the guard behind the desk the desk where the buzzer was. Then he looked like a suspect they were looking for them to come forward which he did and then threw him up against the wall and handcuffed him. They've ended at the same to the other guard. And that's what. They notified them that this was a robbery. They then put tape over. The guards is and head and march them down into the basement where they were tied to pipes. The robbers took their wallets and told them that they knew where they lived in. If they cooperated they would get a reward in a year. All of that took about ten minutes from there. The robbers went into the gallery and started taking art in all. They took thirteen items an ancient chinese vase. A golden eagle from an unholy flag five sketches from gaza. Three works of rembrandt one from any one from flink and biggest of all the concert by vermeer one of only thirty four known vermeer paintings in the world. The robbers checked on the guards before they left. Took the security tape and left the building. The entire operation took eighty one minutes. The total estimated value of everything which was taken has been placed as high as five hundred million The vermeer itself was worth half the entire amount and it is believed to be the most expensive stolen object in the world when the next shift of guards arrived. They couldn't contact anyone to be let inside. They contacted the police who then finally found the guards bound and tied in the basement. With your work gone. The question then turned to who did it and whereas the art one of the things that stood out is that the robbers probably weren't experts in art and they probably weren't sent there to steal something in particular the way they handled the art indicated. Lack of familiarity moreover. They didn't take some far more. Valuable objects works by raphael michelangelo anticipations the rape of europa probably the most valuable object in the museum were untouched.
A dark picture emerges: atrocities in Ethiopia
"Rumors and scattered reports of atrocities in ethiopia's northern region of tigray have been swirling for months amid a media blackout. But the picture is now starting to become clearer and evidence for war. Crimes and crimes against humanity are stacking up on sunday. America's secretary of state anthony blinken condemned the killings sexual assaults and forced removals said to have taken place in tigray and called for troops to be withdrawn. The conflict began late last year. When the region's ruling party the tigray people's liberation front or tps aleph was booted out of the federal government where it had dominated for decades has to be off. Matt has announced quote final military operation against the defiant gripe province in coming days and a statement. Mr abiy said there was a catholic devise strategy to defeat the grand people's liberation front in the regional capital makaay without harming civilians late in november. Mr abi declared victory. Over the tb l. f. An armed resistance has continued yesterday. If government rejected america's demands describing. Mr lincoln's comments as regrettable. Thousands are known to have died in the conflict and more than two million people have been displaced. The growing civil war has drawn in fighters from neighboring regions and troops from eritrea which borders tigray to the north. I'm gonna stay. International has just released a report detailing its investigation into this incident that took place in late november an accident which is one of the oldest and most famous holy cities. Tom gardner addis. ababa correspondent. Ever soldiers killed hundreds of civilians over two days. And what i'm going to stay says was retaliation for an attack by local youth on their military camp now. Amnesty says the soldiers roams around the streets of the city picking out on young men and killing them on the spot then proceeded to plunder the city essentially of everything of value survivors said that all they could see on the streets with bodies and people crying this systematic slaughter civilians and axiom may amount to crimes against humanity according to amnesty. And you say the main players in this incident or allegedly airtran soldiers right just to remind people. This conflict has drawn in a few other parties. In addition to the ethiopian federal army and two grand forces loyal to the tps laugh you also have militia security forces from may bring regional state of. Im hara which has a rivalry with the laugh and disputed territories along their border and then and this is really controversial element. You have troops from eritrea. Which since the beginning of the conflict has been fighting alongside the ethiopian army against the which has a long rivalry with as well as to whether all these parties are committing atrocities. I think based on everything we know so far. Yes but i think. Eritrean soldiers are the most widely and extensively implicated and there are allegations of other atrocities beyond. What's happened in axiom. Ever since the war began in late november we've been hearing accounts trickling out which beginners rumor clearer. Picture is slowly started to emerge. We've seen several videos that appear to show ethiopian soldiers. Standing among the bodies of civilians. They've murdered there was an investigation by human rights. Watch found. European army had shelled towns including the capital of tigray mckelway killing at least eight hundred civilians including women and children and winding back to the beginning of the war the very first atrocity we heard about was this massacre in the town of my tatra which is in western tigray near the border with the neighboring regional state. I'm harlem according to a report that amnesty published at the time most of the victims were. I'm horrors murdered by militia. Sure the ousted rulers of tigray the epl f. That was then confirmed by day. State appointed human rights commission. Here however take ryan's reflect across the border to saddam tell of attacks on civilians by them militiamen an by government soldiers in the same area for its part. What is the european government saying about all these reports so that is an important question on february. The twenty six th the ethiopian rights commission which is a state appointed or body released a statement saying that it had also conduct an investigation. And that it's key. Findings brutally corroborated those of amnesty. That's quite a significant step forward by the commission which tried two to three years ago would never have come out with a statement like that. The question though moving forward is whether the government decides to accept its findings and act on them. We have heard a lot from the prime minister's office the attorney general's office and other government agencies about accountability but so far very little indication that the government is willing to hold anyone but members of the tepe accountable for crimes committed during this conflict. More makes it even more. Complicated of course is the fact that the prime culprits in this case were eritrean. Troops can be very politically difficult for the government. Addis ababa which has been relying on these troops from eritrea relying on its relationship with the eritrean government to conduct its military operations in
The Art & Science of Rock Gardening
"Thinking about it from the gardening perspective. When you say a rock garden will start there. What what what is a rock garden mean exactly. Well you know. It's a books of unwritten about it. Hundreds of books matter of fact but graham stuart thomas wrote the classic but it really can't comes back to the nineteenth century and victorian so to speak and europe is well when tourists started going to use. There were just stunned by the beauty of the flowers. And they want to take them home and they did they dig them up and take them home and they'd started by building these raucous and they were pretty dreadful and you can still see him an old neighborhoods around stuff so it really was about taking that the app spec home but that was the beginning. There's another beginning. Of course that goes back to china in in the third century when the poet chen or being during the six dynasties period here he describes a building a garden with rocks and wildflowers. So that the the asians have been doing that not alpine so much more woodland plants and that's really what most americans do because especially in the east and the west coast. That's what you go best woodland plants so my vision of rock guiding is not strictly alpine although the outlines of pretty cool you know your audience can't see the screen behind me but it's actually a garden in and utah. The belongs to a man named john steiermark and it's nothing but dry land plants from the american west and africa and a spectacular fall any alpine vista. So the truth be said what for me. What rock gardening as i had to sum it up in a sentence would be recreating a something natural around you so that you can have fun with nature and learn so for me. A rock garden could be a bog. Could be a prairie. It could be a a border of plants. Big ones little ones. that are more or less naturalistic. The bottom line is really wild plants. More than anything else i mean. We have cultivars of of these plants but for me in my experience rock gardening. Because i've been a member of the rock garden society for example for about fifty years and the scottish and english as well and was astonishing. Is this this community of people who really know. Plants like nobody. I mean botanist. I guess not planning on way but rock gardeners have this extraordinary ability to know the plan from the time it's the seed till it matures. And it's the rock gardeners. I think of the world who are some of the greatest explorers and plant worshipers. Shall we say yes certainly. And that is my favorite thing about these very specific groups and yes botanists an ecologists. They have their own interaction. But there's few people in the department. At least that. I work in in many of the departments. I know of that can grow a plant or really truly get to understand plant. Quite like gardner does and those specific groups when you start to find people that super specialize they are encyclopedia's of both knowledge and the artistry of it. And that's what excites me. The most about rock gardening is it. Is that sort of emphasis on species which excites me. I liked cultivars plenty enough but to me. The species did at the best nature invented the best and has unparalleled. But then you get to express yourself a little bit and try to recreate something this this honoring of nature honoring the landscape and rock. Earning really emphasizes that more than a lot of other types of guarding. Perhaps by is just trying to recreate or at least honor something. That nature has done over millennia. Which isn't easy but it's also very rewarding. When you do something come out of the other

"Shares of zillow are up sixteen percent this morning. Sixteen percent on the back of what has been a really good year for zillow stock zillow and red fin which isn't exactly in the same business but it's definitely in the same neighborhood. They have had spectacular spectacular years. And i have to go back. And i hate doing this because i hate giving tom gardner credit. Tom gardner was so early on zillow as being a business. That is that that is well suited to how we're going to be shopping in the future. And they are spot on and you know. They came in with revenues of seven hundred. Eighty nine million dollars. A great geographic dispersion. They've obviously benefited from the in migration. They've obviously benefited from the fact that people are making have really gotten to the point now where they're moving out of cities your they're moving to places more out of desire rather than economic necessity but yeah in always are really really great quarter for them and i think that this is just the beginning for zillow.

Being overheated yeah and you know obviously the housing market is not the stock market and vice versa. And yet i can understand particularly for people who are involved in it yeah. I'm sure you know at least a couple of people. We work with a couple of people who are in the process of trying to buy a home and some of the stories. I'm hearing are borderline crazy.

Freelancer won't let cerebral palsy sideline his sports writing career
"Blake. Bombed gardner is a freelance journalist from naperville illinois just outside of chicago. He's trying to get established in the journalism industry but faces mobility issues due to living with cerebral palsy. Welcome to the podcast blake. Thanks michael happy to be here. Yeah i'll i'm having heavy on the podcast so so first of all. Tell me a little about yourself. Where'd you grow up and How'd you end up getting interested in sports journalism. Well i've been a sports all my life and grew up in naperville so unfortunately early left left talent as much as i would like to a group of sports fan and obviously you'll could play because of because miserable palsy. So you'll just try to get involved in any way that can. I grew up to be kinda encyclopedia of sorts growing up. And that's how. I got acceptance. You know much by peers growing up in school innocent. So you're the the writing acumen kinda came later in high school and stuff like that and wanted to try to pursue journalism as a as a college major but my background in sports and my passion for it has run deep. Since i was young. And just trying to learn. You'll every fact. Savior stat. That i can and just kind of tried to soak all that so-called so tell me about the freelance gig will what sports are you covering now is the lead prep for naple son. Which is the local paper here. For off periods from march two thousand. Ten until let's call it March of two thousand and nineteen was Football boys basketball and baseball. So i was in effect doing what a staffer would be doing covering those. Those three beats you'll features. Gamers notebooks all area packages. You any recruiting stuff you know. If we had a certain certain athlete commit to commit to a school would do stuff on that so just basically doing what a staff writer would be doing. Just without title that goes with it in the cash comes with view approached us reached out to us talking about being a man with cerebral palsy. Trying to find a job in the journalism industry. Did you encounter any difficulties in doing your freelance job. I guess the only difficulty was or would be like for example football. You'll you got some reporters who could you watch from the sidelines. I can't do that one. I can't stand for long periods of time to far the bigger issue is being able to grip something in my left hand and obviously being able to to write with right hand so i football. I'd have to be up in the press box. Computer keeps my own. Stats with an excel spreadsheet. Keep a play by play an steno notebook and then obviously you're not being able to drive so i'd have to look enough you my mother's kind of saint so she would be able to drop me off at your whatever high school i'd be covering a gay matt and obviously picking me up then you'll with the pay per bidding sunday wednesday. Friday paper deadline wasn't as big of an issue. So i'd be able to file once. I got back home and then just file with my editor and then it would go online and probably late friday early saturday morning and then it would run for brit on something as far as the deadline issue. Goes you know you were say a staff reporter. Do you think that you'd be able to find ways to adapt so that you be able to meet deadlines. I think it would depend on. If if it was y'all we talk seven day week paper. We talk in your six days a week three days. I think that number one would depend. Beware you covering something. And how far of a distance do you have to go because again. I'm not somebody who who would go to like mcdonald's or starbucks your to file on a pitch to use your wifi so i've never really done that so i think it would just depend on the type of publication writing for and where where you're covering something in relation to where you live. I think that's probably the biggest the biggest impediment that i've encountered just from a standpoint of applying for fulltime work with papers. Because you're the sun was kind of a nice set up because you're only dealing with six school. So like the daily herald in arlington heights. Illinois you could be dealing with twenty or twenty five schools with dupage county. And i could never do that so. The son was a good setup just because of the limited number of schools and they're all relatively close by the some of the challenges. You mentioned you know such as going to the mcdonalds or whatever the file. I mean you know there are adaptations to that. You know you can. You can get a sort of a mobile wireless thing that you can set up. You could sit in your car or you could find a space where you could write something up and file in a shared some of your clips with us and i was looking at your your stuff on medium. I mean you're really good feature writer. Do you have a real sense of how to tell a story. And engaging story you know he had a number of interviews some sports people talking about you know the challenges they faced. I can't remember which one it was. It was about a A pitcher from creighton. Who went on and talked about a big league game. That was his first big league games. And that's a real human sports type feature that you know then. I thought you did really well. Yeah mcnicol shortstop maple central grad. Which is where. I went to school. Full disclosure that he. He played baseball three years at creighton and got drafted in thrown by the royals in two thousand and sixteen made his major league debut with the royals in may of two thousand and one thousand nine. Yeah i and also you had some stories up there about your experiences. I guess you you were pursuing job at espn in their stats department. Concerned told me about that experience. You'll couple years before that of this kind of full around twitter and peter vesey started. Follow me at twitter. So then i started engaging with pam kinda explaining your my story my journey. What i'm trying to do. Would you be willing to to look at somebody stuff. And then the all august of two thousand eighteen after a previous interview with the spn. Two phone interviews. It didn't go particularly well in terms of making the next step and really no fault of my own or at least i didn't think there was any fault on my own. So he said why. Don't you put your story out there. You'll we could put on facebook twitter. He was writing on patriotic at that point doing some work on his own so he was gonna try to help me get it out there. No so we did that august. Two thousand nine hundred got got some nice nice feedback back. Although the only person i really heard from wanted to actually meet with me was mark boyle the radio play voice of the pacers and he and i met in chicago in october before bowls. Pacers preseason game. The festival would six months. We did a follow up the wwl two thousand nineteen by bringing caught wind of it. And then he forwarded onto norby williamson. Who's a it'll bigwig executives peon and then you'll that eventually led to meet talking with a recruiter. Espn by the name of stacey williamson and then we. We got the point where i went out to bristol interview with. Espn for today's april third and fourth two thousand eighteen for job in their stats and information group and you know unfortunately a couple of weeks later found out that i was making it to the next step in that process but i made a strong enough impression with the giro up that i met with on the second day of an interview. And we've kept in touch. And i ended up applying for and interviewing for their production. Assistance program called. Espn next at a couple of interviews in march of this year and then found out in. May that i wasn't making it the next step that process which would have been an in person interview out bristol but obviously with covid nineteen that process. I'm sure got put on. Hold on that. You're what happened with that. So you kind of kept in touch with her the jar up. So we're still you'll let door. I don't think it's completely closed. But she's she's one of the few advocates that i have and i don't have a lot of them so you know trying to keep that door open as best. I can
Atlanta cops fired over students' arrests win jobs back
"Their jobs after video shows them tasing. Two college kids caught in the middle of street protests last summer, Attorney Lance LaRussa tells me Atlanta police investigators Mark Gardner and Ivory Streeter feel vindicated after the Civil Service board agreed their due process was violated when they were fired without an investigation on whether they used excessive force, arresting two college students because lawful force will never look good on a video instead of saying it looks bad, so we need to do something. There should have been a presumption that these were highly trained officers and maybe what they did was approach. Criminal charges are still pending. The Russo says The officers who were ousted June 1st are expected to get back pay Veronica Waters.
"gardner" Discussed on The Electorette Podcast
"I'm John Taylor skinner, and this is the electorate. On this episode. I have a conversation with Tiffany Gardner the CEO of reflect us a nonpartisan coalition working to increase the number of women in office, as well as the diversity of women in elected positions, Disney Gardner, and I discuss how the US. Fears in comparison to other countries in regards to women's representation in government we also talk about what our organization is doing to bring more women, including women from diverse backgrounds including diverse, racial, ideological, and ethnic backgrounds. To the table to lead. So here's my conversation with Tiffany Gardner Tiffany Gardner welcome to the podcast scraping here. Thanks for having me. So tell me what what inspired you to move into this word I know that reflects US works with a lot of different organizations that target women and helping the run for office with training and funding, and but what drove you like what was missing in that family of organizations. Now for me I had actually started my my career, my work internationally starting post apartheid south. Africa working with female parliamentarians. They are in the went to Ghana West Africa with rural farming women there, and then Cambodian other places, and when I came back here to the US I saw the issues there I saw how in in other places where I lived in work the issue of gender parity in politics and political representation was initially it was talked about in the national discourse whereas here really wasn't, and then in other places where I worked and lived there were actual active initiatives being. Done at the government level to make sure that numbers were more equal with respect to underrepresentation. Again here it wasn't. So it's always been on my mind on but move into this role being the CEO reflect us is because although there were alantic groups in a lot of great groups working on this issue on the idea that this was a coalition and a coalition of all these amazing groups coming together united in solidarity around that really excited me and it just felt like a great opportunity for me to. Tell really you know get some stamina behind in some elasticity as it were behind this issue. The kind of quite frankly just really doesn't seem like on the pulse of the American public. I've heard that before about other countries when you look at the percentage of representation that women have in government here in comparison to a lot of other countries I, think people assume that since we kind of have especially after the two thousand, sixteen election this kind of strong feminist voice within our you know within our conversations that people are always talking about. Women being representative in government, and that's just not true really like we are pretty far down on the totem pole in that respect. Now, we certainly are I mean when we think that women make up fifty one percent of the US population yet we only make up twenty six percent of the Senate and then it gives sort of the numbers get worse from there. biggest what like twenty, three point two percent of the house and only eighteen percent of governorships on the numbers are really really bit small and then even women running for office. In the amount of challenges, even a tax that they had been just don't have there's a roadblock right within the American discourse when it comes to female leadership that to your point, you just don't see in our peer countries you know many of our peer countries already have had women heads of state, which we have yet to have ray in aside from that, we look their parliaments whatever governments system they have is just much more reflective of their society was here in the US it's very, very very lopsided the people are. Surprised when I mentioned that New Zealand, they gave women the right to vote I. Think it was a quarter century before we did here in America and I think that that sets up a country in ways for women leadership that we just don't have here. We don't necessarily have that foundation. You know we've always kind of pushed women to the sideline in terms of government leadership but I'm curious about some of the countries that you were working in. You mentioned Ghana on what's the difference there culturally in terms of how people view women in leadership. Willing question you know. What I will say in in the countries where I've been any that you know I I've studied is that generally speaking there is more of an openness onto hatton female leadership power may be of even takes you know traditional African societies and you think about sort of chiefs in by and large ships for men you have this various thing role for the Queen Mother, which is the chiefs mom right and sell their. Places in these societies where women be even outside of government half positions of of authority in their their authority is is is recognized where I just don't see it here in the US in that same way and I just think that kind of spilled over. So the cultural part spills over into the political but also just to be completely honest in some countries, you don't have that cultural acceptance of female authority. So. They right into the political. Right, so some have you know quotas on others may have ranked choice voting other ways you can write it in, but I guess overall the differences that and a lot of our peer countries. This is an act of conversation and it's understood that this issue that has to actively be addressed where's here in the US thankfully, for coalitions like reflect, US were beginning to have that conversation beginning to think about how do we make sure that this is active league notches discussed to begin with but also actively addressed or you know one of the thing that strikes me about you know what you've described and you. Know Women in other countries in leadership roles, it feels like here in America culturally when women take leadership roles in their community, let's say they're working the PTA or just do some community organiser just leadership in their home and in their schools we malign that leadership right? We reduce it right it isn't taken for the strength that it is and I think that that is one of the things that possibly is different when women displaying leadership roles in their communities and other countries in comparison to hours right as opposed to saying, Hey, you know this person can go further. This person can have a bigger leadership role. I think that's that's spot on I mean we think about reflect us in our in our coalition members think about what are some of those barriers to women running One of the main ones if not, always the top one is the stereotypes and stigma around female leadership and how that gets. How that can easily and often becomes very distorted right and sort of you. Now she becomes sort of you know the T. C. H. or you know the Yom, you know the angry one riot or the nasty one you know what I made. So it's this sort of like visceral reaction right to female leadership into strong women and I think best aspects of our society but particular when it comes to political leadership of women. So that is and then you also have you know just sort of more structural issues right that that one of our coalition members represent women willy is is pushing against institutionally. So for instance campaign financing. Reynoso. So wine you know has money donate to their campaign. The money can be used for a lot of different things in different ways, but like I can't used for childcare right and so that really is an issue this impact women disproportionately. So there's other issues like that. That are both. Sort of outwardly you know discriminatory against women in terms of the stigma stereotyping, but then issues that are institutionally. So the work their way against.

"But, my an argument against ghosts have always been like, okay. Why goes only ever come like at decreed us like why? Why haven't has no one ever been laying there was a ghost that basketball game did you see him on the tape? There was a go sit. During the day you know like a a great. That's a good stand that bet it's like. Side Ghost at the bus stop and I've always been my ghost argument but then I just had a question myself recently because I'm so all in now on aliens and then I might. My own argument is is is ruining that because again, why do people only see aliens that night in creepy times in big feel. So now, I don't even know if I can believe that but I wonder if there's a level of attention you're playing when you're scared. I'm just I'm just thinking this through I've quoted many times. It's a favorite poem of mine that's Mary Oliver Poem where she talks about seeing bare tracks in the woods, and then when you think you're endanger everything snaps into this very vivid detail. So like maybe the fear, this is a stretch though makes you pay attention and your senses become heightened and in that like meaning. There's a lot of like martial arts to take advantage of the fact of how people build reality when they're kind of half paying their half conscious. So the martial artists have manipulate the fact that people aren't really looking. So. Like when we're really looking. that. is to say like, what are we missing just in our half baked forgetting this I am chopping the mushrooms sort of base consciousness that is heightened by fear, and then help soc- things like ufo's in the sky because you have to be paying close attention to see that stuff yet because even watching the unsolved mysteries with the UFO's it's The most scared? I've been in a long time and we were watching in at night in bed at. Midnight. Small New York apartment. So the bathroom is four paces away from the bedroom. I'm typically never scared at night. I I was in this new place. I was while I was back to like the McCain watching unsolved mysteries for sure it had the same effect. But after watching that I, made my husband, walk me to the bathroom. So I mean it proves that I was just paying so much more attention in. My think when we're. freaked out. something. It freaked out more. Yeah no and. With ghosts I sort of feel like we are ghosts and with aliens we'd say we are aliens you know what I mean. So turn like bats the evidence. Like. Those are just us but disembodied? Okay. That doesn't really solve the fundamental mystery of what is us like what if there was an us but it was translucent. Okay what is being? What is consciousness? What is us like phenomenon is in that I, have an opaque arm. Puritan with no head like the phenomenon is that anything is and aliens and when people go like well it. The Universe is infinite. Of course there's aliens of course, potential. It's just like. We're just talking about the same mystery, which is the mystery of anything being. So like if this is being where else's they're being and it makes it a little bit like sex you a little bit more. Dangerous or scary but we're still just talking about like what are we doing here? The Pentagon found a UFO potentially I think our time to believe is probably now because I'm with you because I feel like. It's always like so close to some weather balloon cover up. Did I cut I cut out during my taking down the Pentagon and how they always say it's so weather balloon. So let's just enjoy the the not knowing space that we're in. Now where we think maybe they do have a USO but come on don't you know intuitively deep in your heart of course they do. Not Tell An. End Whoever whoever knows. I mean, not cool information. It's Bob Ley czar. La. Is Great Doc was a wasn't my favorite documentary but it was interesting. who was a guy who had access to the Pentagon and it was like I worked on all those things and he's been pretty vocal about it for a really long time. Yeah I WanNa be clear though this is my cheesecake factory meaning it's not a great movie. No disrespect to the people that made it. Gets you some downloads because it's worth watching? I just want you to know when you watch it that that's not like my idea. It's not capturing the Friedman what I mean it's not like A. Documentary, it's like it's like A. Ufo Fair you'll let. I know I I think I might documentary. Yeah. Now like it's definitely, the narrator is trying to be Mickey Rourke. I would if you if owes came and. Would if they already dead like it's super. Dessert and I'm like. Just get to the good part. I, feel like we're in a great place Let's do a speed round and we'll get outta here. The the answers can be as long as you want it's not one of those like I'll hold you to. What's a great lesson? You've learned about Improv if you can remember something great someone told you. that. I'm not to say sorry and that because when you apologize. Off, not. Only because when you apologize like imagine also what you're making that other person feeling like they had a reaction to sorry and then they feel horrible too. So That's interesting. It's sort of like Sam J it's like have some trust in yourself. This vague but I wanna see how you answer. It was the greatest lesson you've learned about SNL. Lesson I've learned about an hour. Keep a clot append in your pocket. Wow You know what that?.

"Or intuitive. But. But now I'm learning. I think I I was like, oh. Really smart or something in an intuitive like I can tau in a couple of. When they come the dinner or something like that and I'm like, oh no, that's like I think I'm learning now that's just more of an impact and it's not always awesome. I think I just from childhood could take on people's emotions really really easily, and maybe I was associated associating some of that like. With my dry it was August really mixed up and so now. Yeah now my My spiritual side is just kind of Is more about curiosity curiosity about into who I am trying to understand my family or my friends better. What everyone at the more I get in touch with mine needs and wants I can see so much more clearly and be able to give people when I think they need and why and it feels so much better because I'm like. Oh yeah like you. You told me. You know you like to facetime instead of pets. I'm GonNa do that like an I. And I understand why you guys even if you're different than me like I'm GonNa. Make you feel good that way and just the way that you picked up on what I want and I don't know that's kind of where my weird answer but my spirituality lands. Oh, I love that answer. So interesting the more work I. DO I sort of come full circle I used to pretend to be nice and give people what they wanted or what I thought they wanted out of fear and manipulation. And the more inner work I do I've sort of come full circle to behaving very similar to how I used to behave say with my parents I've had some breakthroughs with my parents lately in large part to that loving what is book and now I give them what they want. Like A facetime call instead of tax is a great example. Because they always just want connection. And I would just do that would be like, oh, my parents are trying to. Their bleeding into my life their boundary lists they're trying to control me. I was just like is that true or? Your parents and they just want to. Talk to you, and then when I would be like, my parents shouldn't anything anything my dad shouldn't. Explain the craft of directing to me. That's what's happening though that's what he's doing this. That's what he does. Yeah, and my favorite is my parents should respect my boundaries and I'm like really they should I don't that doesn't sound like any parents I know. Arguing with reality has led me to what you were saying, which is like. Not Giving people what they want because I think I need to or I should. But because you actually want to you get to basic quiet where you're like. Wait a minute. I. Have An opportunity to forgive to heal to love to share all the things that sound like the rolling and credits reading rainbow, but I can do that. I'm going to do it. Yeah. That's how I love that answer. With parents especially, it's like, oh Need love to round obvious, but also attention it. You know it's made me an end to want to be known. You know they're just. Stop, seeing them as parents, human beings, and being like, of course, you wanted to tell me how to direct because because. You. Think you know how to direct. In person and Ach that's right and you want to hear what you said and I. When I try I can find a place. Where what he's saying? Is genuinely good and interesting and like. Thank you. That's that's great and not. So meaning, it's not phony, which is what I used to be just be like I just lie. So often I feel like maybe you can relate I would actually say the opposite of what I was feeling if something felt like an imposition or stressed me out, I'd still be like thanks so much for thinking of me. This is great like. Literally the inversion of what I was thinking but when I see them from dot to a person when I remember that just like me. They WANNA. Be Seen. They WANNA be heard. They're probably afraid sometimes they're probably alone there in their seventies their son lives three thousand miles away. There's a global epidemic there in the troubling age. They probably just want to be told like every fucking body you're okay. I love you and you and from my experience even with Weirdo parents and they are Weirdos you can sometimes just say exactly what you're thinking you can be like. You guys you know. I. Really appreciate it when you would take us to Cape Cod in the summer that really meant a lot to me. Those are some of my best memories. We don't have to wait for the death bed. You can just call them and say that. It's crazy. I know we're supposed to be talking about God but. That's what's been going on with me. So I guess I just came out. I. Think. Is is really wonderful and and you saying that Actually. Twenty because you know thinking about your parents like in their seventies alone like. Actually, they do have boundaries I mean most people alone in their seventies. You would think would be like P come here come with being with me with me with me I need like that's right.

Something's going wrong we can say to our sounds. What's going to happen? You know what I mean? I was silly to say but I was picking up some takeout knows taking awhile. And then you just go like wait what's the problem but that step of being conscious instead of just letting your nervous system say this food is taking too long. Therefore I'm going to release a cocktail of chemicals usually reserved for a rabid baboon chasing you. But if you just say like way. Reality is a dream. I'm a guy waiting for food. This is accurate tollway how you feel in the moment is how you feel about your life. We think it's like an average like I was mostly happy today fuck that Shit how you Heidi how I feel right now, which I'm happy to say is in a flow I feel connected with you.

Tell me what the lifestyle of SNL are you gelling with it and is it difficult? I? Mean it seems so social it seems I know my j it's like it seems like he would love like late nights shooting the shared nowhere else to be in that good way in that real comic way And then I'm like, what would I have been there? I feel like I could faked at do you feel like you've risen to faking it into the lifestyle? Yeah. I you being a people believe there of course, say in it as far as being like you know I knew the first the first cover writing may you know like I have? All night long and I knew that I was like I'm going to do it. But like any time with that same group of friends that we've had a movie night and trying to stay up all night long like as an adult you like Peter out at three. Am Your time was just because they three three yeah that's. I remember being like I, have this job now and I'm GonNa Peter out at three. Am What am I GONNA do? I made it all night and you know I continued got. My whole season I do pull a lot of. superlight early morning nights. But I made a boundary for myself. It's like. Okay yes. Like I'm GonNa do this and maybe the light crazier sketches get written at three am but like, Hey, I'm a better writer at two PM period. Life. So. Even if I know that like most people don't get in to the opposite till like four thirty, either I'm going early our embassy in right at home and And just and just know that brought myself. This is the best snl answer I've asked everyone. That's that's been on the show on the show. This question how do they vibe with? Forgive me listeners that I al- I'm always curious. It's like it doesn't seem conducive to me. You said two PM boom perfect or morning morning before all your anxieties have shown up before all your identity is shown up before all the things you're supposed to do I crack your dreams are still sort of bleeding into your consciousness. Right Gimme that over five am and I've been up all night and I'm like I don't know maybe a thing where guys Dick is a typewriter I don't need that. And so square but I've never talked to somebody on the show. There was like I'm just GonNa do it this way that's my boundary I really think that's great. Yeah. been been good for me to just now that that. Yeah this to admit that about myself that. Maybe I'm not the best four am writer and. And that is okay. Yeah I want. Malcolm glad. Well, speaking of Old Malki glads to do a chart of the best sketches you you mentioned, get off the shed, the Great Will Ferrell Sketch. which was in his audition. Which means he probably came up with it at the groundlings. Which means he probably? I'm just GONNA. Favor myself and be like I must be right which means you probably didn't write it in for fucking am. I want the data I want a draft, a sketch draft data. I know you love Kristen Wig. The flirting expert I think is what? Of all time and I'm like I want wig if I get kristen on this by Podcast, I'll ask her what time was it. To that too I mean that's that's the most fun thing about. How many hero copying that on the show it's like anytime there on. Eating interview a podcast like just having not even if you find out the answer time, she wrote that I need to know because right such good data so. So inspiring informative to like Oh, they did it this way or you know I heard? Bill Hader on. Armchair expert and he was just talking about like. How much anxiety he had like before before the show which you wouldn't necessarily think he's just so competent and so good but like catastrophic thinking the like. And just to hear. In. That wasn't the only thing I related to their cell much but it was just like a whole. Different experiences can be happening at the same time. I think that's what our job is. Now you read j Moore's book. Gasping for air time. It's good I. Enjoyed I. Like snl lower. But he was struggling with anxiety the whole time so much so that there's a sketch you can watch it's a Matt Foley Sketch and you can see Jay's hand is in his pocket and the reason he has his hands in his pockets because he's grasping a quantum because he thinks he's going to have to take it during the sketch because he's having a panic attack basically. You know it's terrible. With there's also so is bill haters catastrophic thinking yet when I hear it, we can take the these negative experiences and see ourselves in the know that we're not alone is what? Know. How? How do you deal with that? When you're? Correct me if I'm wrong, SNL seems to be old school in the sensitive. Feels like our fathers became a TV show and our fathers are like. We're just GONNA throw you in the pool because that's when the best swimming happens in some of me and you I don't mean woman I mean Feminine Energy. I. Just mean a little bit more grace inflow and emotions of are just like can't we write it to and aren't the digital short sort of the best thing on the show like. We do more of those like. There's this other necessary counter energy. That's like, no, I think I'll be cutting that and then bringing it back and then throwing it on its feet because it's like this classic show business like show business is overcoming panic. And that brings us out. That's why. Jordan was better when he was playing the rival team or hid build those narratives that this guy thinks I'm not shared or whatever. But how how are you dealing with your own catastrophic thinking? How how does that balance how well I think that? It's kind of Nice to have have grown up in like kind of fighter flight wasn't nice but like the. Survival where you're just like, okay it's if I'm getting thrown in I'm going to fight as hard to like stay in the school and like stay afloat and and not even really question it just kind of since you've been thrown in so many times. Yeah, this is normal. This is normal and. What it is, it's not our fathers. It's are traumatic childhoods became. It's like are unresolved psychological issues. The good side of them became an environment to grow really great comedy. Yeah and people like Kristen and will were those guys were those people that I could be wrong but I've heard stories about will that just like? Weren't phased by it like even if something bombed that just be like well, that wasn't very good whereas I think you and I. If I'm getting a sense of you correctly are like, wow, this this is more of a pressure cooker for me. Yeah. I feel like I. Can I can do both I can survive but that that part that..

You know what mean I don't even if you love Salt Water Taffy and closed like I know more about you. socio-economically, I know more about your family I know about like all where you vacation, there's a lot going on in these choices, which is why I think they're so personal to people begin even that is comes down to like connection like what juices you grew up with like. What drinks you grew up with So I I can see why people might get heated on this and we tried Zevon I thought that the way to go with the draft was to try to try to pull it people's in Sal jet. So it would be our favorite thing but we were also like really being like a once they hear this in its Harks, their nostalgia and.

So You keep going where you were. Yeah I. It's it's just like a great metaphor across my whole life that I don't think at this point. It's about adding more things. It's actually about taking them away so that I can really. Find who I am and the simple things that. That do make me happy that recharge me then allow me to go enjoy my job, which is awesome in and out. Of course so much fun and what I WANNA do but if I If. I don't have the innards. WHO You. With Withstand it like. It's anything. Really Rob. So. So that's thin. That's been really cool for me and one of the things I like break down to. Simple. Things will when you're in the simple moments in childhood which I know we didn't have much but when I really audibly of like. When I started going back to like what are the things when I was a kid that I would just do on my own why did I like to do like? Why did I decide on my own like typically that staff is same. That makes me happy today. and. So those are the things that just feel. So good and the people who either are still friends with from childhood or the friends that like I've made that remind me of home it's like. The bath? What are those things? and. Gets. One. Of those things in sports. That was actually something why played when I was a kid I play basketball and that was the thing that. You know my my mom had his boyfriend who we would always go over to his house on Sundays either to watch NASCAR or football. And it was just the biggest bummer like when we started going name was Nehal. Will. Neal anime at another ETA in my life. Seen you know a seven-year-old like I don't WanNa go spend all day on Sunday with my mom's boyfriend. And sometimes, my brother would be me sometimes he wouldn't I. It's like. But. He didn't add. Can I say even that? Irregular. Sorry irregularity is sort of less pleasant than if he was never there or if he was always there like you have to be like is he going to be there to help or not I know that feeling? Yeah I I had to. So that's where I learned how to love football. It's like we were watching games all day long and I was like, how do I make fun? So once I learned how football was playing Ben I would start doing bat betting where I. Get all the Games of the day I get two dollars from I'd have meal was GonNa win every game I'd have remained at I'd have my mom. And knee the pot was like twelve bucks and you know I had to do. It kneels where I was just like, okay. This game checking in on this game, they want circling it if. You know someone got four dollars and and I fell in love with sports that way and you know. Deal, with my mom's boyfriend and so. Then like getting into the NBA and Friday that is beautiful. Over that that is that again. Some alchemy you know I, it was it wasn't just passing the time and speaks to the improviser in you and the and the collaborator. Partner that you are that you were finding a way to unify what I don't like about sports and I put this in my book was I thought it was going to be me and my dad hanging out at the ballpark like and it's sort of was but like You'd be facing the field I thought we were GONNA turn towards each other I wanted to just I liked my mom I wanted to gossip I wanted to like half joke but my dad wanted to watch the game and I was like so we're facing field not talking like I. This is not what I expected. So you realizing that there was not a lot of connectivity there but finding the game I mean that's what good Improv is find the game. You literally were like, all right. In this scene I, am the unhappy. Daughter of the guy of the woman that this guy is dating how awkward and his roommate okay I'm GonNa. Change. It I'M GONNA I'M GONNA use my skill to have some agency I. Mean this is like The secret of one of the secrets I think to maintaining anxious life is is is realizing where and when you have agency even as a child. But even in any situation, where can you sort of just gently impose yourself to it yourself? You were vanishing. Vanishing and. Way, they seem to like it when there's betting. I'm just celebrating just saying like. It really captured something that I relate to so hard. About what it feels like to be a kid and a success as a kid so that that's really cool. Yeah, you know the. Kind of and sometimes they do have a little the empower once my mom one thing I became like big football fan Then my mom thought she would take me it was the chiefs home game she would take Houston's restaurant you're not that is.

And a great animal for comedian because you have to earn it, it's not dog that just gives you a dog is a studio audience. It's all juiced and like there's a warm up guy for the dog inside the dog. is his own warm but a cat is is sort of like it like Lorn and I'm not even trying to force that it like has like cat, energy.

That's IT I. Mean I know it sorta sounds silly because it's a cat but I don't think it's silly at all I think I can feel you not wanting to be like it's giving me meaning. But of course, it's giving you meaning either people getting meaning from their plants at this time like we're having a rich inner reality like literally inner in your home. You have something. That literally a scratching at your face to get you out of bed defeat it that's like what we're sort of missing. We used to have our jobs commutes, our routines even the GM could be something like that for people not me but it could be for some people. So I I feel that way about my daughter but I don't think you're having the same experience I'm not. I'm not saying that to include you I don't think it matters if it's a daughter or a baby or or a cat I'm sorry. I think having meaning is having meaning. So that doesn't. Is Everything was. adrenaline. Base a little bit before I'm sure even like. With with kids like. I have a kid and you have your work and you're. You're you're trying to be present in your candidate just to adrenaline adrenaline. That's right. Yeah and now there's there's no fear factor. There's no like I got to do the only twenty minutes. I had a rough one last night. And my baby got a very early this morning but there's no rush. It's not like. It's actually sort of helping with parenting because I'm like, okay after a feed you but it's not like I have to feed you and then I have to get in the car I feel like meet the nanny I wanna go ahead and say something weird and see how you relate to. I even like. Food and I'm realized like post mates or whatever or a grub hub and I'm like. I realized that the even that being a part of your lifestyle ads just point zero, five percents stress getting the door getting the food I know it's such a privilege problem but anybody ordering a pizza it's just like knowing someone's coming to my house. Speaker said this before. So I enjoy the simplicity like your take care of the cat I'm taking care of the baby and we're ordering way less food were just cooking and staying at home. It's like I always say it's a little house on the prairie. Are you enjoying bat kind of lifestyle? I am inviting that. Even with the food this week I. I was making my lunch which I don't do a lot because it just feels like that's the middle of the day. Thing to ignore. But I was chopping mushrooms in as violence chopping mushrooms I was like going through whatever else needed to do this economic staff night. This is so simple in. You know see if you judge me on this. how about How about the whole time I do this I just repeat. In my head on chopping mushrooms on chopping mushrooms get had to hear that is so my that's so up my alley were being mud right now that's how up and Allie. I or bring your husband. He's a comic book writer and. We're. So my alley, our parents are being shot and will become the Batman. The. I, I think your husband is Bob King Telhami I said. That's a wonderful mindful, and again, I'm not just buttering bread here if people don't know how to be mindful or how to enjoy something simple. I've literally I didn't make it up I. saw it on Youtube or something but just saying what you're doing I'm walking up the stairs I'm walking up the stairs or I'm washing addition washing a dish keeps you locked into what you're doing And I tell me in the mushrooms did it sort of unlock some of the vity some of the vibrancy even a mundane task? Yes and especially even mushrooms were cut you know I've some Greens than there were green peppers tomatoes. But because I had been focusing on each thing, even my bites were different I was like I just WanNa taste the mushroom I don't buy everything right now and And Yeah it just presents a at least for me. I struggle with and I'm realizing so much of it is just future thinking so. I am going back based. On I'm doing man we've jumped right in and I love it I just want to agree with you on two levels. One is that when you cook something yourself, you eat it way. I've I've never made myself Burrito. At really like who the playful relationship between the spinach and the rice or whatever it is. kind of a boring healthy omelette. Brita make but that's completely true and. You just said like such valuable thing for me I also have anxiety. I think everybody alive. That's that's I. I'm not sure there's there's some I was one time a very turbulent airplane and I thought we were going to die and the guy next to me is drinking coffee. So not all of us have anxiety. Guys sometimes. I think you do it. Do you mind me asking how old you are. Now I'm thirty, five, I just turned thirty I think we're still in the running you know what I mean. I think we can do it I think it's not too late like the the tracks aren't so stiff that we can still become the guy you're. He's sort of a hero. I'm on a turbulent airplane I'm falling for the belief literally believing a false story that worrying about the plane crashing is going to help it not crash. It's a full medieval superstition. Certainly linked to my religious upbringing. So like my concentration and my panic is somehow keeping claim a lot and this motherfucker is like. I love coffee. The End. This is the best part of way. Cutting out I'm cutting and I'm back. My Wonderful Soldiers Got Along gated. So it's like arrest went when. Sometimes the Internet glitches help us out. Yeah. But you said it and I hope everybody listening. If they struggle with anxiety the, it's realizing recognizing for me. It's recognizing a a false belief or re recognizing that you've projected yourself into a future that that isn't even real. So you've got yourself doing that like worrying about future hiding. Yeah, and and you know the biggest. This is again these but you know to overcome anything I think the awareness of having I've never I never knew that I even had anxiety because. That.

"Our host pianist. Peter Dugan everyone coming to you from Calderwood Hall at Isabela Stewart Gardner Museum in Boston Massachusetts Isabella. Stewart Gardner was an avid collector of art. In the late Nineteenth Century and early twentieth century she befriended some of the finest painters and musicians of the time and she amassed this huge idiosyncratic and very eclectic art collection which is now what makes this museum in addition to the paintings in the incredible sculpture. They're also artifacts including a cigarette that was road by none other than Yohannes Brahms. I'm still trying to figure out. How big donation. You'd have to make to the museum to convince them to smoke that cigarette but the locals here just really love it for the romantic indoor courtyard which is modeled after these beautiful Venetian Palazzo. It also presents a concert series. And we want to thank the Gardner and Arthur M win and family for making visit here possible now. Today's show skews on the young side even by from the top standards. We have a thirteen year old violinist. Who's been winning competitions here and abroad and we have a twelve year old cellist. Who's going to play popper but also we discovered that he's a composer and he's going to play for us. This beautiful little minuet that when I heard it on Youtube. I thought we need to share that with a larger audience but at the moment we have our oldest performer on today's show coming in at sixteen years old. Wow please welcome from Woodbury New York Caroline Sue Caroline Welcome. I'm so glad that we're starting with a mature August sixteen year old performer. Like yourself what have you got for us..

"Throughout his life Gerald Gardner's chronic cleaness led him to seek out a community where he could belong he finally found what he needed when he joined an ancient Pagan Group practicing a secretive released Chen known as Wicca he was initiated into the new forest coven in nineteen thirty nine when he was fifty five at least that's one version of events some critics believe not wiccan never existed until Gardner made it up entirely along with his claims about the new forest coven what we can't see for sure is that in one thousand nine hundred forty seven Gerald Gardner founded the brick it would coven the world's first ever documented weakened sacked today history the debate whether this was when Gardner invented wicca or if brick it would was a natural outgrowth of the new forest coven in nineteen fifty four Gardner published the secret societies practices in a book called witchcraft today founding the modern wiccan religion he claimed that wiccan membership was declining and he believed that casting a wide net for new blood was the only way to save the ancient practices however given his chronic need for love and social acceptance it's likely that he was just courting fame gardens decision to share these ancient religious secrets with the public proved to be a w edge sword on one hand it connected him with a plethora of willing converts ensuring the religion wouldn't die out due to lack of interest however the members of his own coven objected to gardeners methods and believed he was only interested in fame from his Urchin like boyhood to his lonely adult years Gardner had always been deeply lonely now it seemed that Gardner was filling his need for social acceptance through the press Vanessa's going to take over the psychology from here please note Vanessa is not a licensed psychologist or psychiatrist but she has done a lot of research for this show. thanks Greg Anthropologist David Sloan Wilson wrote that the pursuit of fame might be an outgrowth of a desire to belong to a group a person zest with being accepted wants to be liked by everyone even strangers and publicity is the easiest way to accomplish this gardeners attention seeking likely stemmed from his lifelong deep seated feelings of isolation and all of his public statements were perfectly crafted to garner attention gardner claimed that Wicca had been in continuous practice for thousands of years since well before the first Christian missionaries reached England for centuries in which is practiced their beliefs in secret fearful of religious discrimination and witch-hunts but fear wasn't the only reason that wiccans kept themselves Adan some of Gardner's followers liked this secrecy as it also meant exclusivity when Gardner started talking to the press he spoiled the mystery around witchcraft and some of the original witches especially Doreen Valiente high priestess of the brick wood coven strove to maintain air traditions although he was never formally excommunicated from the new forest coven or the bracket would coven Gardner soon found himself the target of criticism. I'm an exclusion. He overcompensated for the rejection by forming numerous new covens all over the world and publicizing his beliefs whenever possible As Gardner and his initiates founded new covens in Casselton Glasgow and Hartford Scher he ensured each group retain the same core beliefs that he'd I developed at bracket would he wrote a charter detailing these beliefs gardner freely admitted that the oldest record of wiccan practice were lost to compensate for this sparse information he supposedly researched extensively to reverse engineer the ancient and practices but due to this it was hard to discern where the traditional beliefs ended and gardeners additions began social psychologist it's an author Alexandra Stein noted several key ways that cult leaders maintained control one is a concept called total ideology or the leave the leader and only the leader can set doctrine this means that followers are expected to accept teachings as they come from the founder even if they change over time or directly contradict previous pronouncements Gardner was free to alter the new forest covers charter and set new practices that will he was riding the line between religious teacher and cult leader the charter established the WICCAN calendar which was built around eight holy days these were equally spaced throughout the calendar including the shortest and longest days of the year and the equinoxes days that are exactly twelve hours long which is a gender neutral term for all wiccan practitioners were to honor these days with religious Sarum on his but Gardner was quick to point out that holidays were not ideal for the practice of magic he was evasive about the specific ways that spells were asked or what magic could actually accomplish he simply claimed that wiccans were different from traditional depictions of which is who consorted with the devil or brewed potions over bubbling cauldrons instead he implied that magic could be powerful but was often indistinguishable from coincidence or simple cause and effect as he described in his nineteen fifty nine book the meaning of Witchcraft Magic is as I understand it the art of getting results if I make a wax image of a man in the proper manner stick pins into it and tell the man what I'm doing and he I of fright I contend that he died as the result of a magical act wicked involved the worship of both God and a goddess who were equal in power in theory this meant that Gardner's confidence champion the equality of the sexes in practice societal Patriarchy it seemed to color gardeners interactions with a female which is he knew in his writings Gardner claimed that in ancient times before the earliest witches were driven to hiding women lost their virginity during solemn ceremonies the high priest or another man selected by him would have sex with the woman The entire Coven watched Gardner claimed that the woman's partner was often a complete stranger to her the act was meant to symbolize the woman's embolic union with the Coven and with divine powers her sexual awakening was impersonal a tool to serve the needs of the group more so than something personal or private he didn't seem to espouse similar attitudes regarding male sexuality this is consistent with the observation nations of psychologist Alexandra Stein who noted that colts typically treat women's bodies as de sexualize vessels for devotion and disciples chip in this way it's easier for cult leaders to push against women's sexual boundaries and therefore control their behavior this may see I'm like yet another red flag when it comes to gardeners teachings but it's difficult to say whether Gardner followed his own policies regarding anonymous ritual sacks by many accounts Gardner's wife of nearly thirty years Dorothea was never a member of his covens the two maintained a loving monogamous relationship it's impossible to be certain about wiccans sexual ethics thanks to gardeners insistence that specific wiccan practices remain secret although he loved to court Publicity Gardner recognized that his so called which colts had always been secret societies if he revealed all their me stories he'd lose what made Wikus so special so even though he published broad strokes information about weaken beliefs Gardner never to outsiders those oaths were given during initiation ceremonies which Gardner argued were one of the most important elements of Wicca he claimed a person couldn't truly practice the craft without a formal induction only already initiated wiccans had the power to initiate a new member in practice this that meant that every new convert could trace the recruitment lineage back to Gardner he initiated new high priests or priestesses every time he found did a new coven and those which is in turn initiated their followers then the newcomers would rise in the cult until they had the power to induct new members and so forth by establishing himself as the progenitor of all wiccan lineages Gardner made himself the most most important figure in the religion reporter Bows Harrington identified seven signs that differentiate cults from religions one of which was the author to the entire religion he was just a step away from depicting himself as some sort of God not surprisingly when Gardner took his beliefs public spins and accusation against the wiccans began to fly no matter what you believe outlandish claims about witchcraft and satanism sell papers beginning in the nineteen fifties tabloids began reporting on grim and grisly murders and trying to link them to occultist especially wiccans the February nineteen forty-five murder of Charles Walton for example was sensationally dubbed a magical ritual killing numerous papers inaccurately claimed that Walton's death was the latest in a seventy year cycle in which satanic sacrifices were alertly offered on February fourteenth in addition witnesses reported seeing black dogs and other stereotypical signs of black magic back when Walton died gardner inadvertently made the accusations much worse in one thousand nine hundred fifty five interview with the Sunday pictorial he sized that Wicca didn't practice sacrifice or ritual murder unfortunately the reporter took his quotes out of context and published a hit piece about the moral dangers posed by witchcraft. They called Gardner's books Foul Bait which are meant to trick upstanding people into practicing witchcraft.

"Welcome back to empty frames. I'm tam here today. The crawlspace studios in worm town with lance. What's up lands i was going to him. It's going well today and land says you know. This is our season to new season finale. What a great way to go out first of all it feels really good to be here yeah in worm town in our little black box and we were joined by the muddy river fact checker ker and he sat in front of the mike and he got into some of the details that that have been sort of irking us a bit about the isabella stewart gardner under museum heist and shirley irking him he has been mentioning these things and <hes> and tweeting about them and we really get into the minute shah here lance of two <hes> moments in particular right. I think we couldn't have done any more than that because getting into the minute you might be putting it lightly the muddy the river fact checker is an extremely detailed individual and we get into the crime scene photo of rick agathe who is duct taped and handcuffed down in the basement of the museum and we go through the details of that photo really pick it apart question why and how for the most part and check out these photos in the show notes we'll try to put them on our social media and such as well but <hes> the photos are really weird it. You see some of the positioning of the duct tape. It's it's sort of weirdly wrapped around his head and then there if you really look into it. There is these things around where he's sitting like a knife. That's odd have a little knife. You've never wear this guy is tied up an open pocket knife. That's just one of the many questions at the muddy river fact checker raises and just to find these answers. I mean we don't really know any of these answers because we haven't spoken to obviously the people who taped them up or to rick abbott so but the questions are raised and it's something that i think if if anybody is interested in the heist will realize that they've had these questions as well. It's just you needed someone to say well. Why is it this this way right and the second second part of this chat with the muddy river fact checker or muddy as we call him <hes> is we go into the minute show once again on the the night before video and this video was recorded though about twenty four hours before the heist took place on march eighteenth nineteen ninety andy and the this is like a security video that happens outside the gardner museum and then you can also see couple of the guards inside the museum zia and again it raises some questions why was released when it was released and what's going on in the video itself and the irony is that we call muddy but he actually does the opposite. He's trying to clear up the the mud. He's trying to clear through the muck. So we really hope you enjoy this conversation. It is as detailed as gets gets. You need to check out the video and the picture and stay tuned to the very end listened to what we talked about. Nothing and stay tuned to the very end. We give an an informal review of the sister podcasts to the garden museum last seen so it's an informal review that you're going to want to hear okay so that's it for season two lance enjoy this conversation and we will see you in.
