Birding with Dr Meredith Williams
"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.

"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

"Herring to becoming the first woman to free climb El Capitan in a single day. She's a professional rock climber Emily Harrington. 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.

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.

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. Amazing. Wow. NBC News that report.
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.

Fundamental frequency of the sound is very special. It's four hundred, Forty Hertz. What's so important about four, hundred and forty hertz well as any musician muno eight, four forty is the tuning standard for the musical note a above C I mean it's kind of a bit technical but in general, all Western instruments use this frequency as the basis of a standard tuning. We did it very similar analysis to yours. I'm sure taking the video and analyzing the frequency four, hundred forty hurts the most audible one. There's also a a higher frequency ten, thousand, ninety, her we did. Recognize early on that one of them had a musical connection is a happy coincidence but the bridge making new noises, musical feature certainly, not something we designed for, which is why we're doing testing and we'll be evaluating mitigation measures to camp or eliminate the noise just based on feedback we've heard from the community. So you've probably got a short window to hear the bridge singing. It's mysterious song across the bay. Before the district implements fixed, we should do keep an eye on the weather forecast for North, westerly or southwesterly wind and then go and have a listen. Rob. Speight thank you so much. Thank you. Your
California wildfires: Smoke turns skies orange
"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. But for most other people, outdoor activities are not prohibited. At this point, no says the bulk of the smoke is coming from fires north of the region like east of Chico, and even as far as southern Oregon. He says. We can expect the orange skies to last a couple more days as we wait for big fires to be contained or the winds to shift. In
Matt Cooper on the Human Performance Engine
"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

"In the spring of twenty fourteen. I was twenty three years old. I had just moved to San Francisco for my first real job. Things were good and then all of a sudden I stopped eating. I became obsessed with counting calories. I didn't let myself eat more than five or six hundred a day. A banana for breakfast. A Salad for lunch steamed Broccoli for dinner. If I had a meal that fell unhealthy I would make myself throw up afterwards. I wasn't sure why I wasn't letting myself eat. It wasn't that I wanted to look different. It was more like I my body to feel different. I wanted parts of my body to disappear when I pulled on my jeans. Did it quickly trying to avoid touching the curve of my helped in a shower? When I ran the wash cloth over my body I tried to turn my brain off when I cleaned my chest. But this compulsion to count calories didn't line up with the identity built for myself most weekends. My friends and I went for bike rides outside the city. It felt Rad to ride as part of an all women crew. My friend had a jersey that said blue skies big thighs one day. We went out for a long hilly ride. We stopped halfway for a snack. My friends got sandwiches and SMOOTHIES and ordered a small Kale Salad before my friends could say anything. I lied and told them that he'd had a really big breakfast. It was worried about my friends. Finding out that I wasn't eating. I was worried that they would tell me. I knew better I did know better. I minored in Gender Studies. I was in the giant of monologues. Four Times I didn't even date men a new. That diet culture was bullshit. A knew that my worth wasn't determined by weight. I felt too feminist and queer to have an eating disorder. The final climb back up to the Golden Gate. Bridge is a windy steep three Mile Hill. I've fallen way behind my friends. I'm starting to really slow down. The Hill is getting steeper. I feel lightheaded and nauseous. I tilt over to the side and because my shoes are clipped in I follow over. If pull my bike to the side of the road I sit down and I cry. I feel so stupid. Just like this is ridiculous. Why am I doing this? I Walk my bike up the rest of the hill later that year. I was in a bike accident. I don't remember the fall or the ambulance. The first thing I remember is waking up in the hospital. The doctor told me they assumed it was a hit and run. He told me someone had found me unconscious on the side of the road and call nine one one but the first thing I thought was. What did I eat for breakfast? Had I passed out on my ride Later that day I went home to recover and at the end of the week I took a short walk down to the lake. I sat still on the grass and Doug my fingers into the earth I could have died. I still had a nagging fear that the accident was my fault. And even if it wasn't my body was in bad shape I haven't gotten my period in months. I had acid reflux from all the PUKING. I felt fragile. I decided I needed to get help. I mean an appointment with a therapist who specializes in eating disorders. But my sessions with her always felt flat. She was sort of vaguely. Talked to me about beauty standards. She asked me what kind of shows I watched. And what magazines they read at the end of one session. After a long stretch of silence. She cleared her throat. She told me I want you to consider that the problem is not your body. The problem is how you've been taught to see your body. I stayed silent until it was time to go home. I thought about what she said. On my way home I felt like there was something more complicated going on. It didn't think I wanted that. Idealized female body. But I couldn't articulate. The kind of body did want during the time I was in therapy did gradually start eating more but I think it has less to do with therapy and more to do with the guilt I still felt about the bike accident and the damage. It was doing to myself eight kind of as if it was a chore but the Underlying Discomfort. I felt in my body was only getting worse. Felt it when I got dressed. All my clothes felt wrong. It wasn't so much the close. It was my body in the clothes when I put on a button down a hated. The way attended over my chest. I bought a pack of Hanes white t shirts but those never fit quite right either figuring out. My sexuality had been not easy but more straightforward. When I came out as Queer in college it felt obvious I had a friend and then all of a sudden we were holding hands and falling asleep in each other's dorm room beds and finally kissing but my experience of gender wasn't tied to other people in the same way I was trying to figure it out on my own until I met up with my friend. Jamie for a drink. We hadn't seen each other in over a year and in that time they started to transition. Jamie were mostly plain white. T shirts like I did. But now there's fit them flat against their chests so that they didn't have to tug at it all the time sitting next to them. I felt like the awkward younger sibling. Trying to mirror them leaned over the bar elbows wide just like needed. I became aware of my voice and tried to lower it and oxidative to match theirs. Jimmy told me about their transition their voice cracked and they joked about how starting testosterone was making them go through puberty all over again. At all my pimples. They said I laughed. I didn't pimples but I did want the other thing. They had the ease they seem to carry themself with. Jamie was somewhere else in this gender universe and I realized maybe so was I. I walked on Jess and after feel a little bit confident when I walked in. My house means we're all in the living room. I stood in the middle and asked. Can you start using the then pronouns for me only in the House I want to see how it sounds and try it out? Everyone was like sure my housemate gave me a high five. Went down the hallway room and laid on my bed feeling my heart pound. I turn the new Pronoun over and over in my head. We'll be right back a few months after I started going by then pronouns. I decided to buy a binder. Putting it on was not easy. It's kind of like a sports bra and a straightjacket combined but when I looked in the mirror for the first time my chest was flat I turned to one side flat and then the other flat. I straightened my posture still flat. At this point I was the heaviest I'd been in a year. I loved how strong I felt my long bike rides but I still wish that the parts of my body that felt soft and out of place could disappear now with the binder on a realized that this was the thing I'd been going for. This was the body I couldn't picture back in the therapist's office

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. But it was it was an unintended consequence of strike. I can't believe you said that mean that is exactly what I'm saying. Is this is an unintended consequence. What I wrote it down. I said there was an unintended consequence from this fact, you have been reading my prep material, Mr Thomas. I'll tell you. I'll tell you Thompson.

"But it didn't seem like he was gonna jump off. He was just pacing back and forth. And then okay. So people thought since he was pacing. They should have said something, but he was like pacing back and forth and looking and just jumped all day. Yeah. Me too. And I'm always on a bridge. Wow. But what could they have done? I agree with you. I don't think it's. I don't know these situations. People be mad. They were like monitoring at times. But it's also like there. I mean, unless that is their direct purpose to set up cameras to live action stream and watch make sure people don't kill themselves. Like, right, dude. I agree. It's not their fault. And that's the thing that we do nowadays where we just like displaced blame onto people that are not at fault. It's not their fucking fault. They were trying to make a movie about a thing to bring awareness about this thing. That's happening. I don't know. I don't blame him at all. It's just interesting people were like what the fuck. Fuck man. This one interesting. Because the reason the guy committed suicide Mark Salinger, February ninth nineteen seventy seven was the son of Pierre Salinger who was JFK's press secretary. And this dude Mark Salinger met JFK through his dad and became to know him on a light friendship level. And was started being his golf caddy for awhile. So apparently. What people say is. He never got over JFK's death it just affected him. So deeply that just drove him into a deep, depression, and he. He's not accept that. So funny. Yeah. He's just upset about the president. You don't think that that's the real reason actually possible people are people? Sounds a maybe a little bit of a reach. Well, I mean, it's just like every reason we've discussed on this podcast. Whereas like sure maybe that was the trigger. But it's not the reason the reason is like trauma and depression, and and you know, like real chemical on surface level. I retweeted somebody today that was talking about there. I mean, it's so sad. But they were talking about their brother's suicide and just like how he was incredibly successful individual. But like he had depression. Yeah. Getting away from that. So like with this story there. I mean, like exactly we liked always put on like, what is the exact reason? Whatever that's so funny, though, just to be like while he was sad about the president. Right. He may be. A little more credit than that baby. His life was just a little complicated. You know, what the problem was they they stopped making the double stuff fudge Oreos. Right. Couldn't take it wouldn't take it back to single stuff. Fudge oreos. The thing you said about success and still being a depressed person brings me to the last suicide. I want to talk about from the Golden Gate Bridge. Roy, raymond. That is the founder of Victoria's Secret. Oh my God. Yes. I've heard about this one. This one's great August twenty six nineteen Ninety-three. He jumped off the Golden Gate Bridge because despite being the founder of toria secret, he was incredibly distraught about money issues that he was having and business problems because somewhere in the eighties. He started. My child's destiny which was like a high end children's product store..

"Right. And now it's like they have to. It's like it's out of their own hand. We don't even know why people are killing themselves here. Like for all, we know. Like, I thought Seattle had the highest suicide rate. Why are people not jumping off the space? Needle right? That's you know, a more suicidal town. Yeah. Literally googling right now. The space. Needle porn. I don't know. I think it's harder for one like the bridges e anyone should be able to access a bridge. I think it's sounds reasonable that they only just recently put up these bike security measures. Yeah. For for for the longest time. But like what we can't stop people from going on a bridge four. Yeah. Well, they literally have to have a way to get people from San Francisco to that part of the of the America. Utah. Yes. Jumped off the space. Needle recently. Really wasn't Frazier. Not in Seattle news fray, the Gatlinburg space. Needle. Okay. That's not. That's not what the one in Seattle's called right? My problem with Frazier is that he hears the blues, Colin.

I will. I do. Okay. We should wrap up soon. But I want to go over a few more quick suicide stories of people that I thought were interesting in nineteen forty this one. So fucked up man in nineteen forty five August in Maryland demont jumped up the Golden Gate Bridge. And here's why that's fucked up. August demont was thirty seven Maryland, Maryland demont was five. It was his daughter. She walked out onto a girder. And he said he said go ahead and jump. She jumped and then he as is quoted. He gracefully dove after her and then in his car, they found a note that literally all it said was I and my daughter have committed suicide. Yeah. I can't believe a five year old could convince an adult. Fucking five year old piece shit to convince an adult, man. To be five years old and be able to convince themselves. I'm glad. Sees crying. So crazy fucked up to fuck and like talk to her a million fucking times about lamb, man. We're going to do when we get there and everything. Yeah. Well, go fuck yourself, sir. There is hope she's in heaven and urine. Hell there are a few movie. Yeah. There are a few documentaries about suicide of the Golden Gate Bridge. One of them's called the bridge. And the fucked up thing about that movie is that they like posted cameras on the bridge. And or like, sometimes the crew would sit there with a camera for awhile, and they just ended up catching some suicides. And so like people are like what the fuck, man. Why didn't you do anything? And their arguments are always like, we you. You can't tell this guy jeans. Well, no, but this guy jeans, Brock Sprague. He. May eleventh two thousand four jumped off and. Apparently, he when the people who made the movie were asked about it. They were like, look we were looking at the video and it. He was acting kind of weird..

"They're like, no, I'm gonna fucking kill myself where I'm taking you with me shit. They've found guns on people. Yeah. Don't get super fucking dangerous for them to do it. Should we record a podcast on top of the Golden Gate Bridge? Actually. Yes, I've already booked it. Yeah. Me too. I already wait. Wait. Here's the most amazing thing about the suicide prevention on the bridge, though. And I laugh at this truly. All like over seventeen hundred people have killed themselves since nineteen thirty seven all of these people have taken all of these steps to prevent suicide on the bridge. And this year two thousand eighteen is when they started building nets. They just started concert. Yeah. Years ago, it was a took until two thousand eight for it to get approved in two thousand fourteen funding was approved catching impress people. I don't wanna be. Net. The argument was that it would take away from the aesthetic beauty the bridge. Oh, yeah. Beauty dead bodies floating in the river. I know. Well, also like people are saying like one of the reasons that it's finally happening now and started like moving in this direction in two thousand eight is like the mental health movement in this country like people just weren't acknowledging it as a real problem. They just thought everyone who kill themselves was fucking crazy. We're going to go do it somewhere else. I want to say one more thing there. They would just kill themselves. Anyway, which is crazy thing to say. But but then like all these studies came out that said like, no if someone tries nine hundred ten people who try to kill themselves and are stopped never try again. So put the fucking nets out. You know? Just put the fucking nut. Honestly, if I was ready to kill myself. And I landed in the net I web Bulkin PEO Be PEO. the bridge. Spiders for creating nets. Coming up with this idea in the first book and play a great joke about this is Hugh Moore who doesn't fuck you. Okay. I do love you so good at stand up. Perfect comedy name, Hugh more. We'll he picked it. It took me years to fuck and he too. It took me years to figure out that was the one that took me forever to get is comic nonsmoking him. Yeah. Now's mo-. No smoking. All right. Sorry. Humorous joke joke where he's like. It's just I don't remember the exact set of is like trying to help out my my sad friends. But just like, you know, it's not enough to tell people not to kill themselves. You gotta like do something about it. You know what I mean? So like what about my friend who lives like high up in an apartment building? Would if I put a water slide outside his window. And then he's like cruel. And and the end of the joke, the part that I really always love is like fuck man who replaced my razor blades was circus. Tickets. Also, you I'm sorry. I kinda brutalized your joke. Brutalized to do. I jumped through it off a Brit. Yeah, man. But here's the thing. It's gonna take three years to build the nets because they have to build steel nets. They don't fuck and break and shit interesting. Because like unlike the suicide force for sure like, you know, the Golden Gate Bridge is a functional thing is really just the best bridge right exists there. So you know, you can almost understand them not addressing it or whatever the mythos that's building around want not wanting to address it..

So obviously, there are a lot of ironworkers that that repair the Golden Gate Bridge constantly, and they like have to be suspended high in the air. And they also know a lot about how the bridge itself works. So there is a group of ironworkers that volunteer their time to talk suicidal people off of killing themselves, and in some cases, wrestle them down because they like they like harness up, and then they walk out, and they fucking grad these people to save their life. The the main guy the guy who started doing it. His name is Ken hopper. He he started being an iron worker on the bridge and eighties as of two thousand one he had rescued thirty people lost two and there he noticed. Like, there's this thing that cyclists were doing when they would cross the bridge at the end of the bridge. They would touch the fence. And like if you see one person doing you don't really think of it. But it's like a clearly a ritual. He's like love to those who've died or whatever and. And. Ken, hopper. Saw this any requested this engraved plaque that says hoppers hands at the end of each bridge, and it's picture of two hands. And it says hoppers hands touched Dennis Hopper's hanging touch, dude. Cassidys hands. I don't know. It's nice that he's kind of like trying to make some sort of like impact or dude. It's just so yet reading about this was really heart warming and sweet. And the other funny thing about those guys those ironworkers is that something happens to them that never would have occurred to me is it like people fucking pull knives on them..

Forget that a lot more neat. It's like how in my last name. The dress for less is silent. Okay. So. Yeah. Like, I said there's a lot of. There are a lot of things done to prevent suicide on a bridge. There are first of all it is now since they're really thousands. I think maybe late nineties it's close to pedestrians after nine pm from nine PM to six AM cyclists can still go over the bridge at night. But there they have to be buzzed in and out of a gate by like, this remote service. Totally got kill yourself with a bicycle. There are eat a bicycle there. Yeah. But what are you gonna do with your bike? Damn there are suicide hotline telephones posted all along the bridge literally like there's a sign already to you. It says. Is it says crisis counseling, there is hope make the call the consequences of jumping from this bridge or fatal and tragic, and there's a phone underneath it where you press a button. And it goes straight to a suicide hotline. Cool is that go straight to your dad, guess straight to my phone? Yeah. Yeah. You're stupid spec. You. Yeah. Get boehner's. I hate you.

I told him that I was reading about this made me cry. I'm gonna read you made me cry there. People have written notes on the railings of the Golden Gate Bridge. And this this is one of them life is worth living. If you have forgotten it try living again, I don't know what you've been through. But I know where you can end up a love you. Oh, I know I teared up reading it again. No. So sweet so amazing. Wow. It's so interesting. I mean, like it's funny because I government could really take the opportunity to just like disavow it like never address it and kind of shut down everything. But what they decided to do was kind of like highlight it and make it like almost a monument to mental health right down. Right. But like they're not like walking away from it. Yeah. They're like if you're here. This is what the history of this place has been. Yeah. This is like what you know. We know we know this now, and you don't have to do this. Yeah. There's also like there are so many. I just can't even tell you how much of that type of sentiment. Matt type of person find themselves at the bridge. Like there is a group of suicide prevention volunteers called the bridge. Watch angels that started in two thousand one organized by a woman named Mia. I think it's pronounced Mounier Monnier Mia mayor. She is she was a Pleasanton police Lieutenant and this is interesting because Pleasanton is like forty five minutes inland from SF. So it's like an it's not in the north bay. It's. Yeah. So it's far. But this group that she organizes their off duty cops that police patrol the bridge on their offers end on holidays looking.

You know, my family, and like people and also like how would I really feel you know, because you're kind of putting yourself in a different state of mind. I know how you actually feel when you're depressed definitely like finding reasons to check out excuses to check out is something. San francisco. Got his aides. Yeah. Yeah. It's interesting, man. I I don't my guess is that it's not that entirely. Like, I know like what you're saying. Is that at this point so many people have killed themselves on the Golden Gate Bridge that there's that factor? But at one point no-one had and it still became this place. And I just think it's pretty funny to drive over multiple bridges to get to another one. I will say I honestly believe the reason I started killing themselves on this bridge is like what you're saying. We're like, it's a big red bridge. Like a significant thing like throwing yourself off of the empire. Step thing. Right. I agree falls. Ever drive over the Golden Gate Bridge. It truly is beautiful. And it takes you from San Francisco into the north bay north bay is fucking so beautiful, and you can see the like hills and forests coming up on the other side also and plus you're driving over the bay.

And then feeling some sort of sense of obligation that you're like, well, I traveled all this way to commit suicide. Clearly, this is where I should commit suicide. Dude, here's suicides. It bothers me. It bothers me too. And and here's the thing that really amazes me about it is like there are so many bridges in San Francisco. There are truly like I'm really I was trying to some research on like what the actual appeal is of the Golden Gate Bridge over other bridges because I read this study where this guy like. Surveyed people who attempted suicide there and a lot of the people that had attempted suicide of the Golden Gate Bridge. Head driven over the bay bridge to get there. And it's just like what why is it so important to you that it's this bridge. And I wonder if it's because like you want it's like a huge red beautiful bridge. And you want your death to be poetic kinda there is just a little bit of like what we've seen with say. Like there was that suicide we did that was about the people throwing themselves into a volcano, right? It was one person. But then this kind of became a trend. I don't know. There is kind of like a weird like association of just like, well, this is where you do it. This is somehow allows me the like ability of the grace to do it because I'm here, I'm at the Golden Gate Bridge. It's like expected of me to kill right. Right, man.
