Preacher Sean Feucht Finds the Silver Lining in the COVID Pandemic

"Logs I'm talking to my friend Sean Foyt. He's in a hotel room, Sean. You need to get out into the streets, man. Stop hiding in this hotel room. What's up, with that? You just said something that reminded me. You probably know this because you're a student of revivals and everything. But I've written a number of times the story of George whitfield. I wrote about him in my book if you can keep it and then he's one of the 7 men in my book 7 more men and his story is kind of strangely similar, right? Like he's preaching in churches and then he's forced to go outside the church and when he goes outside the church and starts preaching like in a graveyard or whatever something happens and it leads to what can only be called revival. It's the first great awakening. There is something interesting, right? That COVID would force you to do something or would open the opportunity for you to do something that who would ever do? Who would ever go to the Golden Gate Bridge, whoever did this? And it kind of launches this movement. You find yourself doing this everywhere. You're doing this in Miami in a couple of days, December 31st. And then in 2022, you're going to continue doing this all around the country. But there has been a lot of pushback. I mean, that's what's the documentaries. It called super spreader. What's it called? Yeah, we're still working on the title, but right now, super spreaders kind of been. I think, yeah, Jesus Christ, super spreader, like Jesus Christ, superstar. So but you have to see that because this is unprecedented. There's something new going on. COVID caused this to happen. And I know that I just know that it gives you hope that God is doing something. You don't need to know exactly what it is. You just follow. You're just in the middle of it. Yeah. I mean, you know, I never in my wildest dreams would have imagined what we're seeing in America both the tyrannical nature of the government, the division, the burning of the cities, all that kind of stuff, but yet also I mean, Eric, we have seen, I mean, in the last year, we've gathered 480,000 people to worship outside. We have seen over I would say over probably 30,000, maybe 40,000 people come to Jesus. You know, in cities across America. We have baptized thousands of people. We've seen drug addicts save set free delivery. We've seen protesters that came to antagonize crumple to the ground at the altar. It's amazing the power of God that's being unleashed right

"The bridge. Hit a major snag when the great depression started in nineteen twenty nine. The project was basically put on hold for several years until nineteen thirty two when the san francisco based bank of america purchased the entire thirty million dollar bond issue in an attempt to help the local economy. Construction of the bridge then began on january. Fifth nineteen thirty-three. One of the innovations used on the bridge and designed by strauss was movable safety netting. Bridges were notoriously dangerous to work on the safety netting managed to save the lives of nineteen construction workers the nineteen ironworkers who fell and were saved by the net created. What was known as the half way to hell club. Eleven men did die in the construction of the bridge and ten of those eleven deaths occurred in a single accident. A scaffolding collapsed on february seventeenth. Nineteen thirty seven and the safety nets couldn't support all of the weight. The bridge finally opened to the public on may twenty seventh nineteen thirty seven at its opening. It was the tallest and longest bridge in the world. A distinction it held until the nineteen sixty. Four opening of the verrazano narrows bridge in new york city. Perhaps even more impressive is at the bridge. Came in under budget and ahead of schedule. The total length of the bridge is one point seven miles or two point seven kilometers and the towers stands seven hundred forty six feet or two hundred and twenty seven point four meters tall today. The bridge is listed as part of. Us highway one a one also known as the pacific coast highway however technically it is not part of the highway legally highway one ends just before the bridge and then starts again just on the other side of the bridge. This is mainly illegal jurisdictional issue and most native. San franciscans aren't even aware of this fact. The golden gate bridge highway and transportation district controls the bridge and the california department of transportation controls. The road on either end. The bridge is continually being painted. The paint is the primary protection of the metal from the salt which is carried.

"Of san francisco is located where it is has nothing to do with the hills or fog or picturesque landscapes or rice. Aronie it has everything to do with san francisco bay. San francisco bay is by far the best natural harbour on the west coast of north america from puget. Sound all the way down to kabul san lucas at the bottom of baja california. Even though the native aloni people knew about the bay from lydia. It didn't really come to the attention of europeans until seventeen sixty nine. This is actually shockingly late. Considering that the spanish had missions in california for centuries by this point it wasn't as if europeans hadn't sailed ships up the coast of california before seventeen sixty nine the most likely reason why no one ever sailed into san francisco. Bay was simply that the entrance was fogged over. The first recorded instance of someone seen the entrance to the bay was gas bar de portola but he didn't sale in it wasn't until august fifth. Seventeen seventy five. When one day. i'll. I became the first known person to sail through the golden gate. The land was claimed by spain. But the truth is they never really did anything with it. By the end of the eighteenth century spain had a very well developed. Empire going all the way down to the southern tip of south america as good of a harbor as it was it. Just wasn't that important to the rest of spain. The area eventually became american territory after the mexican. American war in the treaty of guadalupe hidalgo. It was under the united states. That san francisco really took off. It became the de facto capital of the west coast. Especially considering its importance. Is the hub of california gold. Rush nineteen forties as important as san francisco. Bay was for shipping in the growth of california. It was also extremely frustrating for locals. Who lived in the communities around the bay the only practical way to get from one side of the golden gate to the other required a trip by ferry which took at least twenty minutes the first regular ferry service from san francisco to marin county. The land on the other side of the golden gate began in eighteen. Forty one service which started in eighteen sixty seven was the sausalito land and ferry company which eventually became known as the golden gate ferry company by nineteen twenty. It was the busiest ferry service in the world. Servicing railroad cars and the newly popular automobiles. Even though san francisco wasn't an island it's primary connection to the rest of the world and the communities on the san francisco bay was by ferry. There have been talking about the creation of a bridge to directly connect san francisco and marin county by spanning the golden gate since the nineteenth century. The talk of a bridge was encouraged by the construction of the brooklyn bridge in eighteen. Eighty three which made the idea of such a bridge at least plausible. The first real serious discussion took place in nineteen sixteen..

So san francisco is sort of like halfway in between so they set up the sing where we would meet Down in san francisco Around the presidio area which is just this lovely beautiful area part of san francisco and so we'd meet down there and they arranged for some takeout and we're going to eat out on this great green expanse at the presidio. Were just beautiful. People go there and they just hang out and picnic and families come and then after we had our picnic and so forth They had a walk planned and we kind of walk along crissy field in some nice views of the golden gate bridge and the city itself. So i knew that You know where we're gonna be someone to make sure. I had a camera with me. But i also knew that i wanted to travel light. This wasn't a day for me to you. Know have a bunch of photos care. And be. Like one of those dads. This was a day for me to enjoy and spend time with my boy. So i wanted to travel light well. I'm sure that's a huge shock to you right. Of course. I wanted to travel i. I almost always wanted to travel light. Regardless so i packed in my pocket. I had the iphone twelve pro. Max and i thought that would be particularly useful for the ultrawide if i needed it in a does have that. You know that to axe telephoto there. But i was more in the mood to shoot with fuji film. The x one hundred v is this that kind of day. I don't know i just. It just felt good to hold it in the hand and everything so my iphone stayed in my pocket all day. I never. I never used it once but i did pull out the x one hundred eighty. So we're taking our walk. And i i see some shots when we when we get near the water Played around with some shots with the golden gate bridge in the background in some really cool things in the foreground. That was fun in the thirty five millimeter. Equivalent lands of the excellent hundred v Was fantastic for that. It really was. It was great so that was all going really well. But then we kind of reversed direction. We went back the other way and the view that right away caught. My eye was the san francisco skyline with a kind of a semi low hanging clouds bank. So he had a little bit of blue right behind the buildings. Some fog above it a love that kind of sandwich. Look it's it's really gorgeous and in the foreground right in front of the city was the dome from the palace of fine arts. Going man has really nice. And then i had some good stuff to work within the foreground in front of that even so i'm going. That is a shot. i wanna do. I know a little bit of a postcard. Shaba does kind of an unusual angle and the lighting was really good. And i just wanted. The shooter is wanted to shoot him.

"Guess what it cost a cost you fifty cents to cross one way on the bay bridge when it first opened up in nineteen thirty seven and it costs you fifty cents to go back so to go round trip on the bridge it would cost you a dollar but if you think about that that is one thousand nine hundred thirty seven money. How crazy is that if if you move that to today. That is eighteen dollars per day to cross the golden gate bridge. I guess even back then they figured if you live in marin you can afford it some of my marin listeners. We'll get that joe on this day in one thousand nine hundred seventy seven.

"One i'm russ and here's what you need to know about today. I cannot believe. And i think i've said this every single month this year is flying by. We're about to hit summer here and you know when summer rolls around you think popsicles rate okay. So ice pops. I guess would be the way to say that without violating any kind of copyright because popsicle nats a copyright. you get. It's ice pops. I guess i don't know Whatever we're we're not gonna worry about that on the podcast Seven to say nice things about popsicles. And i guess so. I guess we'll be fine. We won't get any copyright issues. Okay so i said it was invented by a lazy kid. Yeah the very first. Popsicle was made in nineteen o five by an eleven year old. Frank persson so frank was outside playing outside of his san francisco home and cavalry eleven year. Old boy he didn't put his stuff away at the end of the night he left his soda outside and it got so cold that night that the soda froze and boom. There you go. We had our first popsicle The kid went onto a patent the frozen ice on a stick and he later sold the invention and the name to someone else. So i guess he made a bunch of money. So there you go I guess if your kids are going to be lazy make them patent the product and sell it later so that they can pay their own way college. There's your lesson for today on national grape popsicle day aright. By the way. I can really find much information about grape popsicles specifically but we got a picture of one on the instagram accounts. Now that that's coming out today so that's pretty exotic all right. Let's take a look at our events for today. We started our events in nineteen thirty three. The walt disney company released this short film. You know if you've heard of it it's called the three little pigs. Yeah come on. That was that was a great one. It's actually you know that origins of the song who's afraid of the big bad wolf. The short was released a radio city music hall and i generated actually more revenue from merchandise than it did the movie. Maybe that was one of the things that made it where you know. There's so many things you can buy about disney. I can't confirm that. I'm not a disney historian but i'm gonna go and say one one makes to their i. It was the most successful short of all time and it did so well that this helped walt decide to make a full feature animated film now speaking of disney specifically walt disney. I've had the walt disney family museum on the show before a couple of different times And a fantastic place to visit this weekend. They're doing something pretty innovative. You can actually check this out on. Walt disney dot org. Starting on monday you can see the current community exhibition. It is called veterans voices painted realities. This exhibit was captured using three sixty degree camera allowing you to pretty much walk through in explore a museum. Right there in your home virtually of course if you are in the bay area yeah you can head over there. I told everyone that wants The museum opens up. I'd let you know about it. Opened up a little while ago but yes it is open you can go check it out as well. This thing is cool. Veterans voices painted realities at the walt disney family museum. Just go to while disney dot oregon and check it out. I'll put a link to that in the description all right. Let's get back to our events here in nineteen thirty six queen. Mary had its maiden voyage. yeah this is basically a floating hotel now down in long beach but it's trip started on this day in nineteen thirty six now. Here's the thing about this ship. it's one thousand. Eighteen feet long and more than eighty one thousand tonnes. The titanic by comparison was just eight hundred and eighty three feet long and about forty six thousand tonnes. When i hear about the titanic. I always think of this huge massive ship and it was smaller than the queen mary. It's just so weird. I've been down there to to long beach. I've seen this and it's so weird to to think how small the titanic really was especially compared to the modern day cruise ships. It's just really weird. But yeah as i mentioned the queen mary a did its maiden voyage on this day. Nineteen thirty six and yeah. It's it's a hotel. It's got restaurants and you can actually. Here's the cool thing. You can stay there because it's right next to the cruise ship port. You can sleep on a ship before asleep on your ship on cool. Is that right at. Yeah it's it's a little weird. I almost did that When we went on a cruise. But i i decided. Hey we're gonna ship to. Don't stay on a ship the night before by the way. The centers for disease control and prevention informed cruise lines in united states. Here that they're going to be able to resume sailings in july of this year. So maybe we can all start heading on under. Maybe we'll do one of those. This is today a theme cruises right and you know do some some funky dances and have our own drinks and Okay may maybe it's too soon for that. Eighteen thirty seven here in california. I went from down there long beach. Now i'm up here in san francisco because it was the opening of the golden gate bridge now the first day it actually only opened to pedestrian traffic. As the next day of course cars would be able to cross the bridge but before the cars would get their two hundred thousand. People took a trip across the bridge. People were trying to do all kinds of silly things because they wanted to be the first person on the bridge to do this. So they're like stiltwalkers in people pushing strollers whatever it was. They were the first ones to do it on the bridge at san francisco. So you know back then. Little crazy place. So who knows what was going on The san francisco chronicle has have some of the photos of some of the craziness that happened on that. So you can go check that out today. prior to the bridge opening up basically just relied on ferries to get you back and forth from san francisco to marin county The bridge by the way is the longest suspension bridge in the world. And.

"Berta. Volt from more than one. Hundred and fifty million years ago and then explosively diversified culminating in more than ten thousand species distributed worldwide. Today are human. Relationship to beds is complex to seen as spirit messengers of the gods and at the same time. We took the wild red jungle fowl. From india and selectively bred into domesticated chickens the now farmed in cages feathers have been used for thousands of years and indigenous headpieces and at the same time but has like parrots and parakeets a kept as pets bird poop called guana was used as the first fertilize of modern agriculture. And charles darwin study of galapagos finches was to the formulation of evolution. Buds are all around us. We are closer to bed than any other wild animals birds. I literally and figuratively are canaries in the coal mine. Their wellbeing is our wellbeing threats to buds range from habitat loss including logging climate change industrial farming with pesticides invasive species and even cats. These will had a devastating impact on the bird populations of the us and canada. Which in just the last fifty years have declined by. Three billion birds danton insane. Thirty percent of all birds gone. Three billion pez of wings have vanished ever across our continent from sea to shining sea. Luckily birds have strong allies in their corner. There an estimated sixty million active bird watches in the us alone and with the pandemic shutting down so much of our country. We have flocking to bird watching like never before everything from bird feeders. To binoculars have been in short supply and this year the birding app e bird collected more sightings in a single day the was admitted during the first two and a half years of the apps existence. I must admit coming late to the bird-watching pardee. But thanks to dr meredith williams. That's about to change. I'm lucky enough to work with meredith every day in her role. Running one of the most important and complex agencies in california governor. The department of toxic substance control. Dr williams received two undergraduate degree from yale and a doctorate in physics from north carolina. State university meredith then worked and silicon valley fortune. Five hundred companies in the technology consumer product and chemical sectors meredith left the private sector to follow her passion for wetlands and birds and led the san francisco estuary institute as we'll hear. Meredith journey is about so much more than her resume. Meredith nine meet apt get ready for my maiden watching invention merit so we're about to go hopefully bed watching what. What do we need to bring with us while like what. What's what's in the bird watching backpack almost nothing. Which is great binoculars. Of course are your starting point. So i hope you have some inaugurals. I know you were looking for some recently. You gave me some good advice. But i get any but we all kind of professional but what just like you would have an extra pair. Do thought so. It's in the office but we could stop on the way out of town. Not of that sound. No we should. We should yeah. You just kind of out now. Okay okay so you got the binoculars. How do you if you're starting out. It's surprising how good have gotten very affordable these days so i mean it's still a lot to invest but ask a bird watcher. They might have an extra pair. That's the first place you might wanna try like them. What do you well. first of. All there are lots of different kinds of birdwatchers in terms of some people. Want to count every burden get really long list. And they track every single birthday they see. It's about the numbers of the that very unique bird and they chase vagrant birds that fly in unusually and they're rushing off to see that bird so there those kind of bird watchers I'm a bird watcher. Just watch one bird for a long time. I liked bird behavior. just i'm just fascinated by them. And i think they're beautiful so i could just end up watching one bird for for quite a while you can just take it. In at whatever level you want in terms of the variety birds that you could see and how you would just experience them and enjoy them. So and i think the only way to find that out is to bert. Watch a little and see what grabs you What you do sounds really peaceful. The first thing that sounds the first thing sounds more. Like in england as a whole breed of people go train spotters and i always kind of identified them with bird watchers. Like it's really about. How many things. You've you've been able to capture and less about the bird the thing that you'll doing just sounds like being a peaceful will watching another animal even the people who are energized. That way unless they're doing a big day which would be a day when they map it out to see as many birds as they can. In a single day they're not necessarily rushing around even they are going to have moments of really enjoying a bird and even somebody like me chased around golden gate park looking for a rare warbler. That's very rarely in san francisco. There's an amiability amongst birdwatchers is really camaraderie. People are so nice. There's always somebody better in terms of being a better bird watcher. Meaning they either can identify birds better or you know they just have a lot of experience for the a little bit about. The ecology and people are so happy to share their information. That it's really wonderful. That's one of the things i like about it. And it tends to be every now and then you get into group and there'll be somebody who's a little loud but by and large the the folks are really kind of it's easy to get in a groove with with birdwatchers and settled and gopher along stroll and see some great birds. But what's there everywhere that it's a it's a big i mean like it huge movement and it's growing apparently it's one of the fastest growing outdoor activities. There is it's it is just kind of crazy places where i been going for ten years and cues to be just me and five or six friends maybe and now parking lot and i think the pandemic has made it even more so where a lot of people. That's how they wanna get outdoors or they've they've just kind of discovering it because they know it is one of the only ways to be outdoors so i think it's going to continue to grow which i think is great because then more people are connected to the natural world which obviously makes them care about it more. How did you get into meredith like what. What was your journey into bed watching. I mean i liked birds always in the yard growing up in ohio. You know the robbins and the blue jays. There was a hill in town. And i used to ride my bike up in the hill early in the morning and i would always see birdwatchers and i said when i'm old air quotes. I'm going to bird watch. And i kind of that seed was planted but i didn't really bird-watching until my three say in my thirties. I started volunteering for the san francisco. Bay national wildlife refuges. That you know are on the perimeter of the bay. You know them well getting restored a lot of them Back to title harsh. And i when i volunteered i would be doing everything from pulling out. Invasive plants to building shells but there are always birds around and i just became more and more and more fascinated with the birds invested in binoculars and just started creeping in. You join the audubon society and suddenly you're getting news about different outings and the next thing you know you're you're pretty far in foreign now. I'm foreign. I'm not pretty far and have taken a couple bird vacations. Which i think says that. I'm pretty far in. But what do those entail. The longest trip i took was to go to brazil to the pantanal. Which is a very large wetland like the mecca of bud watching their many mecca. It is a mecca over the course of two weeks. We just went out every morning. We get up before sunrise. Be moving by six o'clock at the latest. Usually more like five thirty and we went to a place that's called the parrot crater a giant sinkhole. And it's all a lot of parents live down in the sinkhole. And so you look down. A new parrots lying around in a simple it was tremendous and we ended up seen two hundred different species of birds there along with some giant giant eaters river otter is and it was quite a trip but the birds were spectacular.

It was a breath of fresh air to be able to like speak so openly and especially as someone with very little background in blockchain finance Just to be able to learn from by peers who did have that background or other people. That didn't have that background so I really enjoyed that Most of the class was structured around our research project which ended up being a paper where we were tasked with picking any company. subject Obviously focused in law and how blockchain may or may not be able to help or just like expanding on the connection.

So you'd be presented to the class when we wrote out our outlines and He wrote about makeup and One guy was talking about space and how it might be used with satellites which i thought was crazy and super interesting Other subjects were real estate in taxes. i ended up going with labor rights and international human rights and labor law And on levi's because they are using blockchain to survey their factory workers and measure their wellbeing in their factories allow. That's super interesting. Well before we dive into like the meat of your research project because i do want To to know more about it in our viewers now How blockchain can apply to law. Maybe in a way that they haven't thought about it before expecting conversations around blockchain and law usually focused on how the law is regulating blockchain. Not how blockchain solutions can help us have better legal institutions I wanna want our viewers any you know university administrators out there listening in or maybe even our partners who might be considering sponsoring or help getting going some more blockchain courses at universities just a little bit more about the class like how many students registered was this something. That students were demanding. was all faculty driven Do you know much about how about how many people registered how successful you think it was. It was her first round of pitching the class and we had about. I would say like fifteen to twenty students. Which i guess for. Bigger universities is in that large for law school classes even like in your third year. You wanna be taking more seminar style classes and we had. We filled the room Sometimes didn't have enough seats just because people are taking some from classroom to classroom but for the most part the engagement and interest was there Certain people had more sophisticated knowledge on the subjects than others. But i think as we touched on different areas for each day we met at met. I think once once a week. And i don't remember but Through time that we did meet everyone seemed pretty engaged and happy to participate at never felt like there was any awkward lulls her. We were all really interested in learning Just every angle that was being presented to us Obviously certain subjects urban more interesting than others like demar dark web and you know buying drugs online but.

Outrospection

"I spoke at a unity church last sunday. About how important. It is for us to balance introspection without prospection as a kid. I spent hours alone in my room reading drawing and building model airplanes. If i misbehaved at school. My parents couldn't punish me by yelling. Go to your room because my room is exactly where i always wanted to be instead. They literally locked me out of the house and said go play outside like a normal kid makes them friends. And while i'm not condoning this parenting method in hindsight. It probably did me some good mind you. This was years before we had terms for introverts extroverts. Kids on the spectrum and so on children were either considered to be well adjusted. Meaning that followed the one-size-fits-all set of behavior rules and guidelines to fit in or they were considered misbehaving troublemakers. Outcasts the only place. I actually sit in was an after school programs to learn pascal software and robotics. Which is where i made a couple of friends who otherwise also pretty much kept to themselves although alone time is healthy. So were the hours. I was forced to socialize with others whether locked outside the house. So i can play with the neighborhood kids or tori school field trips and camping adventures much to my resistance. At the time just as i was entering teenage years my family moved from small town in the northern most part of israel where grew up to california the high school i attended in san francisco not only had more students in it than my old town had residents but i was suddenly surrounded by asians blacks latinos and maybe a handful of other caucasians. It was a culture shock. In fact i probably would have gone into actual shock or drawn inward even more had. I not been encouraged to socialize in my earlier years. I'm not saying. I was well adjusted. I'm still not but i managed to quickly learn. English makes him friends and stay curious about everyone's culture religion and ethnic background. I asked so many questions because nothing. No one resembled anything to which i had previously been exposed. I joined what was called. Sf net a network of computers and coffee shops around san francisco with coin operated dialup modems. Long before computers had windows or mice just a black screen and a keyboard essentially offering a chatroom of sorts for up to thirty people at time either dialing in from their homes or from other coffee shops in the netters we called ourselves had net gets like bonfires on the beach or meetups at bars on ashbury back when nobody checked your id tecate in through sf net. I met people from all walks of life college kids adults and even befriended kids my own age. Who were homeless by choice. Living on the streets and sleeping and golden gate park as a result of all this exposure to such a variety of individuals. I didn't have the same knee jerk judgment that my parents had about other races religions homeless people and so on i truly believe visibility leads to acceptance the first time i saw someone with blue hair and facial piercings. I was blown away but the nineties had more than its fair share rebels and mohawks so nothing shocked me after a couple of weeks. Think about what it must have been like the first time someone saw an interracial or same sex couple holding hands walking down the street a few decades ago the first time may have been shock but it were off the more people were exposed to it until as just another happy couple granted in some areas and for some people that still a shock but to others. It's no big deal and that's because visibility is what leads to acceptance exposure opens our eyes first minds. Second an hartford. The key to empathy and compassion therefore is connection not just seeing punk rockers on mtv but having coffee with them on a thursday night. I guess i was forced to grow up in much the same way. I was forced out of the house. When i was younger. Residents of major metropolitan cities are exposed to different cultures beliefs and backgrounds on a daily basis. So they tend to be more open minded than people who never leave their rural areas. Where anyone who doesn't fit in is considered a freak that absence of exposure and connection leads to judgement and segregation. But we can expect the so called freaks to intentionally move to rural areas in order to open people's eyes minds and hearts. It's up to each one of us regardless of where we live to stop thinking of anyone as other and get curious instead of judgmental in a way only out rejection makes introspection possible. If that makes sense how would we know being judgmental if our rigid boundaries are being challenged. We can't heal what we refused to confront the logic of not criticizing what we haven't even made the effort to understand because once we understand. There's nothing left to criticize implies by definition that if there's anything about which i'm still being judgmental the problem is me. It means i have more work to do. It's not somebody else's job to explain themselves to me. It's up to me to do the work to look outside myself to understand the bigger picture where there's room for everybody

Made history when she scaled the 3000 FT Granite wall of Yosemite National Park's El Capitan in under 24 hours. There's someone who could care less about the election going on. She's like I have other things on my mind. And she is a five time US national champion. I guess in rock climbing. I don't know. Racing for this climb just a year earlier that hospitalized her And a 1 30 said 10 36 against it was To begin our ascent. 21 hours, 30 minutes 51 seconds later. Herrington reached the top of El Capitan, making her fourth Her the fourth person. The first woman to ever climb a ll Capitan in 24 hours. Says NBC Nunally Harrington has literally climbed her way to the top The 34 year old rock climber, becoming the first woman ever to free climb the famed golden Gate root of El Capitan. Doing it in under 24 hours in order to free climbed el cap in a day you have to cut corner for me. It was just about balancing what types of risk I was willing to take in orderto sacrifice. My safety for seed head wound from a bad fall during the climb almost prevented her from completing it. There was a part of me that didn't want to Going, But there was this other part of me that just knew that I could do it and I deserved. I owed it to myself to try again. Carrington pushed through, making her way up nearly 3000 Ft of El Cap, one of the biggest, most iconic walls known the world over for its sheer size and difficulty. Harrington is only the fourth person ever to free climb the Golden Gate route in a single day. Using just her hands to grip ridges, sin his dimes and ropes only as a safety measure not to aid the climb. I feel like anybody could conceivably die on any given day Sport of rock climbing, made popular in the documentary Free Solo, which followed Alex Honnold as he successfully attempted the first free solo climb of El Capitan. Scaling the vertical rock face without any protection from a fall and scary honestly, a big part of the appeal is to be in this position that should be totally scary should be crazy, but to feel super comfortable. Honnold, a longtime friend and climbing partner of Harrington accompanied her on the first two thirds of her historic climb. Her fiance, Adrian Ballenger, joined her for the final section, climbing much of the sheer rock in the dark of the night, ultimately achieving what she calls an impossible dream, setting a new record and scaling her way to new Heights.

"Is eight thousand. Nine hundred eighty one feet. The bridges clearance above high water averages about two hundred and twenty feet depending upon the tide. Well it's towers are at seven hundred forty six feet above the water and were for the longest time the tallest towers on a suspension bridge. They held that record until nineteen ninety-three construction of the bridge began in nineteen thirty three and one finished under budget in one thousand nine hundred thirty seven. The golden gate bridge is arguably the most recognized suspension bridge in the world. But it has also been a target though before i relate the very real near tragic fate the golden gate bridge and over three hundred thousand people. We need to take a trip back in time. Seventy five years to the end or near end of world war two. The dropping of the atomic bomb on hiroshima japan is historical fact. Lesser known is about germany. Japan were also conducting research and self sustaining nuclear chain reaction that would release a control flow of energy from the comic nucleus but it was in december nineteen thirty eight that german physicists. Stunned the scientific world by announcing that he and his research team had split. The uranium atom a process later designated as nuclear fishing. The possible uses of this fishing weapon and the awareness at the germans possess knowledge of this process alarmed. Many scientists who escaped from nacion pied europe. Dave feared the consequences. Of what would happen. If hitler scientists should develop such a weapon. Okay okay you have to forgive the history lesson. I'm almost done while we were busy. Bombing germany's various industrial complexes japan at a furious pace was developing. Its own atomic bomb. That would be ready by the end of world war. Two just months away actually. Japan tested their atomic bomb on a small island located off the korean coast for more on this. Check out the book japan. Secret war okay. They had also created for santo class super submarines that actually had small hangers and airplanes with folding wings. At came in at more than three hundred ninety feet long overall and just play six thousand five hundred short tons more than double their typical american contemporaries. Although what has all this to do what. The golden gate bridge plans have recently discovered that the santo gu i four zero four was equipped with torpedo. Tip with a nuclear warhead. It's target was the golden gate bridge. Okay i can hear you moan yet another woulda coulda shoulda story just to fill in the gap. The i four zero four was rendered mid pacific at the end of the war and taken over by the us news the fact that it was targeting. The golden gate bridge with a nuclear warhead. On one of his torpedoes only became known after the freedom of information act was created but enough forward from nineteen forty five to nine thousand nine hundred eighty seven and the fiftieth anniversary of the opening of the bridge and celebration. eighty thousand. People were expected to turn out instead. Eight hundred thousand showed up just prior to celebration day. Several divers go on the footings supported towers error. Checking it out to make sure could handle the number of people that would cross the bridge that day the day the celebration in the west foot a torpedo was found embedded in the cement and a panic. It was removed to the far side of the for long island's where it was detonated but turned out to be a dud and after further investigation foundation. The west tower was given a thumbs up still secure. It turns out the does the eight hundred thousand people that turned out for the anniversary party. Three hundred thousand decided to gather on the bridge when they began to sing swaying from side to side. Two events occurred. One was swain of the bridge on a horizontal plane. The other was the natural. Curve of the bridge flattened out while i wasn't there at the time but i've driven across a bridge dozens of times and can't easily imagined. A bridge flattened out by way of research. I also found out that the mini sub that fired the torpedo into the west. The golden gate was found not far from the farallon islas.

Pirates Of The Carolinas

"When I asked a couple of my friends from Ireland to join us on the show to talk about their country's legends of fairies and benches and things that go bump in the night. They were a little reluctant at first I thought it was because they didn't want to appear superstitious or maybe out of date. And that's what they wanted me to believe. But I wonder if they weren't just a little afraid. Coming up today on travel with Rick Steves we hear how the Irish comedy tells they grew up with very folk lurking in their surroundings in their testing their luck right now by making an exception to talk openly about it with us. We'll also explore San Francisco's legends of Ghost sightings from Al Capone on Alcatraz to a grieving mother who still wonders Golden Gate Park? Let's start with some wild tales of historical characters from the coasts of North and south. Carolina. Terrence Zip key is brought to life thirteen notorious pirates in her book pirates of the Carolinas. She relates stories of ships weighted down with gold crews too drunk on rum to fight treacherous colonial officials, mutineers, privateers, and the sad end of the line for the pirates who got caught. White Barents thanks for joining us. Hi, thanks for having me. Give us some background on this. What was the golden age of piracy in the United States? Well, we really don't know how long piracy's been around It's been around at least twenty, five, hundred years they are, and there was an era during its hey day that was known as the golden age piracy, and that was the light seventeenth century to early eighteenth centuries and The United States it'd be colonial America. It was colonial. America. When they came over here and Interesting Carolina had a lot of the officials had partnerships with the pirates. We were sort of commerce poor place back then. So we actually welcomed pirates like blackbeard until they had the big crack down on piracy and that was the end of that. So is it kind of the fine line between a privateer and pirate? What's the difference? It was such a fine line rick and basically a little piece of paper because a lot of the pirates started out they were privateers. And they were involved in Queen Anne's war wars all over Europe and everything, and they were commissioned to attack enemy ships in order to get money to get booty to help fund the war and they split the money with the crown. So yes. So the the king or the governor would say you are licensed to attack ships as long as they're not our ships and you p half the booty, but you gotta give the rest to us. So we can fight war whatever right and so then imagine when the war is over and your navy is no longer needed. All these men I've ever known. There's no employment. You know it was a fine line anyway between privateer and pirate. So a lot of them just became officially pirates and they got to keep everything. Nice business model. So, now, what was the basic action? It was mostly ships going from Europe to the Americas or where did they get their best opportunities at that time? That was all these merchant ships that were doing these trade routes and so you could just sort of sit out there. It was just like fishing and just block them off. They weren't very well armed or anything they were slow because they were big heavy. Ships with a lot of merchandise onboard now also, and it really didn't matter. This is one of those falsehoods that people realize people thought pirates just want gold and pieces of eight. But the truth is that they wanted what they could sell when they got these merchant ships and they had all these realms of fine linens and silks and tobacco and rum, and all this was this was pay dirt so they would. Get this stuff, and then they would go to the next port and just like you see when you travel a lot people stealing stuff off of ships and setting up a little stand and selling a cheap absolutely, and that's what they did like a lot more in partnership with the authorities here and so when they came into port and all that they would look the other way and then they would get A. Cut for looking the other way and the merchants would get discounted goods. The pilots would get money I mean everybody was happy sounds like a win win win lose situation I'm rick this is travel with Rick Steves speaking with Zip in her books called pirates of the Carolinas. We always think pirates of the Caribbean and your book is pirates of the Carolinas. Why was there so much pirate action and the Carolina? coast. Well at that time, these were pretty poor state. So we needed to get commerce wherever we could. So pirates were good for business. So we saw there were a safe haven for pirate in fact, blackbeard who was one of the probably the biggest chapter discussed in this book, he actually set up shop actually made a home and actually came part of the community and all up and north. Carolina.

Consternation was only five to one against those good phillies last time out unfortunately, she didn't she didn't run late she was five one she ran or like she was about twenty five to one. She got beat about nine lengths that day but this is a softer spot in the Pike, the Pike Place Dancer she's drawn well down along the inside I don't think the races got tons of speed, but there is a little speed in the race and I think consternation should be able to make up some ground against this field I like her at nine to five Johnny one of the king's open Pretty much the king now in northern.

"Staying high up with little impact air quality at the ground level. That's according to Jan. All a meteorologist at Golden Gate Weather Service's most of the smoke is staying aloft and air quality levels in the Bay Area are not terrible. People in the sensitive category need to be careful.

"There's stuff that we look at Mrs true with anything in life, right like their stuff that we look at and right away all our biases coming hit us right like we see someone just messing around and it's got the tag functional or someone's doing some sort of balanced based movement. We instantly tag that there's not enough strength. We got an appropriate exception last podcast we're getting new at this time and so obviously. There's always these biases that we have and it's not to say that these some of these methods are the perfect method right and I always enjoyed talking to you but digging into the parts of some of those methods that we would just kind of toss as functional garbage or whatever insert your term here. Right. But trying to dig into what actually is useful there what does fit with how the human body because clearly it's someone had to do it and feel good doing it. There had to be some component of that that felt right and good and worked with the body. And so the I was hoping we could get into a little bit of we're going to start talking about Fasha and fashion wiring. So though that in mind, what's your thought on? will explain actually I don't I don't see watch watch those videos probably enough as I should. But like kind of like the functional try triplane type activities and Fasha and fashion waring's could you give an overview of what train the fashion system means to you for athletes? Yeah. So basically, I think that training fashionable system in a holistic capacity is sort of one of the more missing ingredients when it comes to training faster here talked about in isolated silos, which is kind of interesting because a lot of people are very familiar with Myers work in anatomy trains. So they're used to hearing about how like the spiral line various slings body are interconnected yet for some reason, doesn't necessarily make it to the training application. It's like we all might be reading the same research, but we're distilling different applications, different training modalities from it. You'll hear it talked about a lot with just like foot morphology things like that, and that is very important for sure. But a lot of people aren't necessarily like the integration of fashion is making it to their training. Otherwise, they're not necessarily doing ballistic missiles is strength movements, our movements, corrective exercises that integrate all of these things at one time, and when you do that it kind of almost creates a suspension type effects like the wires about the Golden Gate Bridge, for example, give you titi southern coastal in a way that's like connecting the body with an segregate right tension with with integrity instead, you'll have these sort of. Isolated silos people might generate tension in one muscle group, but not in the same time until so you kind of tend to see some fashionable. Disjointed nece show up when someone goes to. Get Out. Court in the gym whatever. The. Whole ten legacy and the that whole element of it all and you spoke about the foot there and there was a presentation I did it was a couple of years ago on the foot and one of the pictures I included was It was a dinosaur and it was I. think it was like a break your source like one of those dancers. With a really long neck and it was talking out it was like each of those kind of like the same thing like each of the the ligaments that connected and the facial lines that connected each of those bones was really the the total structure, the total, the ten segregate created by that total structure was what was required to hold that net head up if It was just a muscle like individual muscles that were linking the bridges. It just wasn't going to happen or linking the spinal segments. It wasn't going to happen you needed something that was more that superseded like the single joints and kind of was like a grand more grand wrap that actually could hold that neck up and I think about that too I've mentioned this. On this show before but my kids, they like the book on Pop, the two and four, and they like to do that and so when they're jumping on, me barefooted you the the pressure that goes through the meal. Anyway like thirty pounds you know thirty and forty and the pressure that goes through the balls of their feet into me is is massive compared to. Any other strength output they might have. So it's like. Walking for skill and you don't really have any muscle, you can put all that pressure through one point through the facile system that to me I'm like, okay. Every time they step on like yeah, I think this is the fashion system at work here and that type of strength you just get. That's not the strength you build by a really by I mean you can get a better by lifting weights in particular ways that you do it but I feel like it's just so much more developmental and in our wiring and our physiology. Yeah, I mean and and that's kind of. A nice little loaded carry that you have. Manual loaded Gary Exercise of going on there with your kids. But Yeah I mean a lot of like in A. Kind of all straining conditioning community, it sorta sounds woke rights talk about the nervous system and I mean there is. Obvious, obvious obvious component for that. But if you're not also addressing on the structural side rights of the nervous the hardware, you're not also addressing it on the structural side by developing integrated fashion than you're still muscling through movements. Right. There's a lot of people who might think that they're doing performance training, but they're only really tackling it from kind of a rate of force production, nerve contraction, and relaxation velocity side of things. However, it's the fascist not integrated well, enough at least you're still kind of building an engine without building handling. Your building, our speed, but it abilities in the nervous system without. Having the structure transfer that energy, right? So the the fashioning well wound together is not just an injury prevention concepts right? It will yes. Distribute forces that you absorb in create appropriately or more appropriately. So you're less likely to get hurt but the fashion being well woven together almost like a basket or like one of those Chinese

And you know, it's kind of heavy, but it moves it to the other side of the bridge. And it's at a standstill and getting from the other side of the bridge to where I work is God awful every single day. And so it it gets on my nerves yesterday. And today, I thought it was a holiday because. The bridge man, it was smooth sailing. Seriously. I was saying to myself. Oh my God. There's a holiday what did I miss what's going on today? And then it occurred to me it was the strike. It was the number of cars that are not clogging up our road. Oh, that is really that is something that they in a sense. They. They're not paying shock.

The vote Hamilton because ships are registered now and Wilson burritos Hamilton Bermuda where I have been Hamilton Bermuda. Now. I was to Hamilton Bermuda. I in fact, I was there for nine eleven. Couldn't get off. Listen, that's another story question. Are we getting more? Cruise ships docking in San Francisco this winter than ever before. Or is it my imagination? It's it's not where we're seeing more of this the the grand princesses in more. You've got the ships. You'd have a couple of other ships crystal in. And then of course, we have the world cruises that are that were that were popping in February. So it's it it is normal. Oh, it is not known and let us not forget to tell our listeners that every time you see a cruise ship out. There means another million dollars for the San Francisco Bay area local. Very very, very important million bucks. Ten of course, you know. There's there's no rhyme or reason whether the ship is back in or or. Pets. Visu? I asked you about that. You never gave me a decent explanation of wise. Answer. I don't wanna take all your time up. Listen, I so I I'm actually in London right now. Good good good. Telephone lines. Yeah. I've gone to Saint Nazaire France for delivery of MSU cruises beliefs. Yeah. Well, we Sheldon the Southampton. And they're having the naming ceremony last night, the wind cut it off. So, unfortunately, no Pacelli had to had to go back and. Rogers was there would have been quite a an extravaganza. But there are some really nice opportunities to sail on this brand new ship. It's one hundred seventy one thousand tons of old about forty four hundred and thirty four or smoked means about seven thousand including crew, right? Yes. Yeah. They they love to tell the six thousand pastor dubber full. But it is it is going to be sailing couch shift either seven lights out of Barcelona Genoa or even Messina Sicily for week, but it'll visit Marseille Genoa Naples. Ripon base Rancho Capri Messina, Valetta Malta as all the secretary. And we're actually I was finding some pricing from as low as six hundred ninety nine dollars. Per person for a week, which is pretty interesting. So but by catching it the right porch on you can actually add three or four or five or even seven days onto the cruise. Oh, and and make yourself, you know, have a nice that, you know, period of time in in either Barcelona Spain, but you know, if you hit Marseille, for example, or even more sina, Sicily, you can really, you know, add some some really nice stops in Italy to to the trip. Closer to home. But I've mentioned NCO's pride of America, which is doing the seven Hawaii cruises out of Honolulu. If you're okay with inside an ocean view rooms, there's some last minute opportunity starting from eleven hundred and forty nine dollars. In march. But April jumps to about twelve hundred ninety nine dollars. And it's I mean, there's there's no better way to see the islands when you consider you've got almost one hundred hours in port, which you days valley in today's in. Coli everything back to normal and big island. Yeah. Well, the volcano is out, and you know, the media can't scare people. So. Yeah. People are going back and tourism is resuming. But you know, for those wanting to leave out of San Francisco, you know, believes already talking about Alaska. Yeah. And um. Demand. There's there's a tremendous amount of demand. And we've got several new ships joining the free last year. Yeah. Diane Shiels Marijn bliss was the largest ship ever to visit Alaska. It's older sister.

"That's listening out there. And this is a true question. You're listening at home. You're in your car. You're traveling right now have you ever been to Alcatraz? Go ahead and audience answer, ask yourself, of course, you have you came when you were a kid, and you stayed on that boat out in front, and you did the whole excursion and everything have you ever walked the Golden Gate Bridge. Boom have not done that. In her nineteen years haven't done it Alcatraz not gonna my wife yet my daughter, and my wife, I think that'd be really cool experience. But I don't like to wait in line. So probably never going to do it. Here's another question that a lot of people don't actually have the answer to or don't actually say yes to which is have you been angel island. And a lot of are like da riot half. I haven't I had to bring in the expert because my wife has and she keeps saying because we live in mill valley now it's just right over and take the ferry. She's like we have to go. So I had land reach out, and we found Holly pots, she sitting next to me. She is a spokesperson for the California parks. Company that manages the concessions for over twenty plus state, national parks in California, Oregon and Arizona, I had to have you on because I need to know all about angel island. I have to know about it because it's one of those excursions that are so doggone close that. Everybody needs to really go do. Yes. Thank you. Yes. Angel island is the best kept secret in the San Francisco Bay area. Right. Your glasses are amazing, by the way. Hey, guys. She's nervous shake it off. The adventures began. Honestly, the moment you I was reading this last night, and my notes when I was flying back to San Francisco and the moment you step off the ferry. I was like intrigued by the f- was it five miles of paved road. There's five miles of paved perimeter road. Yes. It goes around the island, and then there's four and a half miles of single track trail that goes to the top of mount Livermore. And once you get to the top of mount Livermore, you are at seven hundred eighty eight feet, and you have a clear view of all five bay area bridges on a clear day that would include the Golden Gate the bay area or the the bay bridge. The Dumbarton the Richmond and the. If you get all five the Burton. Oh my gosh. Don't know it. So if you know it right now, call eighty and if not we'll figure it out by the time, we're done. This is the best kept jewel secret in the bay area. Trust me on this. Once you get off, you could take the million views of the homes that over in Tehran, and Belvedere are really really cool and the views of the Golden Gate are really cool, but people do hike and walk and run and go over there, and this is all about outdoors and really enjoying yourself. But talk about more of this special state park. It's ranked in one the top five by CNN and travel, which is I I love that channel. First of all, I actually know a check out in trouble because we try to find places that we never ban or like be a little interest or do something outside the box. But that's pretty cool as one ranked one of the top five by them. But let's let's get off the ferry walk me through straight. So you you can take the ferry from San Francisco or from Tiburon. The moment you step on the ferry as he said, you basically your adventure starts you travel across the ferry about twenty minute ride. You've got amazing views of the Golden Gate Bridge and that sailboats out in the bay. And then once you get to the island, you are met at the the dock by the Rangers you greet you warmly in friendly. I'm happy to provide you a map of the island and from there. You can visit the cafe when you arrive and grab something to eat or drink. Then you can rent a bike or you could go hiking around the island on your own. There's also segway tours that we provide guided segway tours around the island, we provide electric bikes that you can rent and go around the island. I think my favorite thing to do is actually hike to the top of mount Livermore. I think there's a single track trail that you can take all the north ridge. And that takes you about two and a half miles up the trail once you get to the top of mount Livermore. You can see all. Cyberia bridges. I remembered the fifth it's the San Mateo San Mateo Richmond, Dumbarton bay bridge and Golden Gate. Oh my God. No joke when I was talking. You were beating yourself. I was like lost in the back of your head. And you just got it as you're speaking to me, something happy. A fifth bridge. The there's a fee when you get on. It's a park those talk about all this. So when you take the ferry you're going to be your you pay a round trip very fee, which includes a state park fees additional fee once you get to the island. That's cool. That's cool. Is there maps included? What adventures the excursions that outside when I was reading this last night and checking into it is about the US army outpost or in the civil war Ellis Island, the POW's during World War Two. I remember in all these things. This is the history is phenomenal. It's the island is very rich in history. I'm going back from the civil war all the way to World War Two. I think it's most popular popularly known for the immigration station from one thousand nine hundred ten to one thousand nine hundred forty they detained thousands of immigrants through the immigration station and held them for up to three months. I'm on the island in some cases. There is an immigration station museum. It's been renovated the state. Park operates that we operate a shuttle that runs to directly to and from the immigration station. So you can do self guided tour the state park is closed on the immigration is closed on Mondays and Tuesdays, but it is available Wednesday through Sunday. And there are no since that are in the immigration station that are happy to answer any questions. You know, give you as much information and details as you like, it's a beautiful location. It's it sounds amazing. And this is all about, you know, exploring the bay, and you know, we live here. And until I went to Moran. I've never mount Tam all those things I've really haven't done. So this is something people need to look out. And check out. I think it's a great way of spinning a day if not a weekend and stay up and Marin or so on in two thousand seventeen you guys upgraded the tram history tour multi-language audio tour, which is great to. Yes. So we operate a tram tour that goes around the island. It's one hour tour. It's we actually partner with Alcatraz cruises. So you can you can if you go as you can also purchase an island hop ticket. Which is going to give you a couple of hours on angel island in the round trip. Are there the tram tour is covered in that were as well as it's in multiple multiple languages. It's great for adults. You know, they don't have the mobility to walk. And it's also good for kids that can't go long long time longtime on their feet, but they were adults that drink. Electric bikes for said don't drink. It's fun activities that you're offering. They're also have the segues. Don't forget the bikes, and you also can get on the tram that we talked about here. We talked about the five miles of paved road four and a half miles of single track at the top of mount Livermore, which is great.

And I think it's great you're offering full catering services for groups and corporate parties, family, reunions and birthdays girls here this out go to angel island and get the full service package. That's really cool. That's not you don't ever hear that. No. You don't we have several different picnic sites that we can reserve for you in advance to give you privacy.

And the sites before we get out of here holidays. Join one last thing that I I liked because I'm I'm learning more to stunned that I get that. I live up north is to beaches, which is really kind of cool. Yes. So there's two beaches one beach on the east garrison side, and that one is very easily to get to. Let's very popular a lot of people. It's on the the least Wendy side. So it's very great for sunbathing. But one of the other beaches that I'm gonna talk about in Sunday's. It's okay, you can sunbathe. Yes. You can sunbathe felt like Baker beach though. No, no.

"golden gate" Discussed on This Week in Travel

"Whether it's video or a interactive map that says, you know, this is how you get out to the Golden Gate Bridge because a lot of people show up in the middle of San Francisco, and they go, well, I don't know how get out to the gate bridge. What do I do? And that's just a random example. But I'm trying to find a different approach to City Guide sites that that will fill what I think is a need. It may not be the highest traffic getting thing around. But I think will be the type of thing that people need to know. Don't put any negatives on it yet. But only positives, right? I think if you do anything regarding San Francisco, it'll get traffic. Yeah. Yeah. And that's my hope it's like I said, I'm I'm just discovering this town. Now, you know, I was working with Tom Wilmer who's got his his NPR podcast and segment, and we were we weren't even scheduled to do a segment, and we got to talk, and then he started recording. And it was he found it fascinating. That there was travel editor somebody who knows a lot about cities. Elsewhere in the world who didn't know anything about it, or at least not much and the more. I thought about that that kind of captured my imagination, and that's something that I'm gonna try to take advantage of this. Like, I said earlier, I theoretically, I still have that sense of wonder and that sense of surprise about my own town that a lot of people don't typically have. And also sped may end your experience as an editor, it might enable you to sort of make a city quilt of a lot of great content. That's already out there with you just sort of sewing it up and filling in the gaps. Right. Right. And that's you know, obviously, I'd like to be able to keep a fairly high standard of for what what to include in this. I also don't want to rely too heavily on on the kindness of strangers because. It's why this project stay a little longer is for the most part. I'm doing almost all of it, which means the photography the writing the, you know, just about everything, and that's that's fine at the start. Obviously, I would burn out like a, you know, crispy critter, no time. But. I tell you the people that that's what we do. We don't feel for you. Yeah. River. But yeah, that was the whole point of trying to get out of the chronicle part of the point. Boy, was it's like I have these areas of expertise, I have these areas that I know I'm as good as anybody else out there in and I can put less effort into what I hope is better. Better results in the long run. And if it doesn't end up being less effort than I'm screwed because I'm getting I'm getting too old to work by fourteen hour day every day. So..
