Eight hundred serve pro and serve pro dot com. That's S. E. R. V. P. R. O. DOT COM welcome to brainstorm a production of iheartradio. Hey Brain stuff. Lauren Volk farm here. San Francisco's iconic. Golden Gate. Bridge had to start somewhere and at start was in eighteen. Seventy two when railroad entrepreneur Charles Crocker called for a bridge to span. The Golden Gate Strait the three mile or five kilometer. Stretch of water. The connects the San Francisco Bay to the Pacific Ocean but it wasn't until nineteen sixteen. The project gained traction as the area's population grew and traffic congestion at the ferry. Docks becoming a serious issue. That's when James H Wilkins a structural engineer and newspaper editor for the San Francisco Call Bulletin connected with San Francisco City engineer. Michael M. Shaughnessy and started talking about. What would really take to make a bridge connecting the city to the? Marin headlands reality three years later San Francisco officials formally requested that o'shaughnessy explore the possibility of building a straight spanning bridge and. The engineer began consulting colleagues around the country. Assure the idea of connecting San Francisco to the North Bay was Nice but was it financially feasible. Most industry insiders speculated that such an undertaking would cost over one hundred million dollars. That's something like one and a half billion in today's money and perhaps more importantly maybe it just couldn't be built one. Joseph Behrman Strauss however begged to differ strauss. Chicago-based engineer presented a plan. That not only made a bridge seemed possible but downright affordable Strauss's plan estimated that the construction could be done for twenty five to thirty million Strauss submitted. His preliminary sketches to Shaughnessy and Edward Rainy Secretary to James Rolph then mayor of San Francisco in June of nineteen twenty one while his original design a seventeen million dollars symmetrical cantilever suspension hybrid span needed some tweaking and didn't pan out a shaughnessy made the design in December of nineteen twenty two and although the press described as ugly there was surprisingly little public opposition to the ambitious endeavor but while citizens seemed relatively open to approving the massive undertaking. There were more than a few snags. Along the way to construction a first Ashanti stress had to assemble a special district of the state of California to oversee the financing design and construction of the bridge as a way to give all counties involved a voice in the process but ultimately the fate of the bridge was in the hands of the war department which legally ruled all harbor construction potentially affecting shipping traffic or military logistics when the war department held a hearing in May of nineteen twenty four to discuss the bridges potential impact on navigation and financial burden. Things got thorny plenty of people voiced their opposition especially the local ferry companies. Who start at a serious anti-british campaign in an effort to halt construction and they succeeded for eight years. But after nearly a decade of jurisdiction and uncertainty Strauss Shaughnessy were able to create the Golden Gate Bridge and highway district composed of the areas six member counties INC by the California state legislature in Nineteen Twenty eight as the sole entity responsible for the final design construction and financing of the future bridge then Secretary of war Patrick Hurley issued a construction permit in August of nineteen thirty and the building process officially kicked off nearly three years later in January of nineteen. Thirty Three by this time. The vast majority of residents were stoked and a groundbreaking ceremony at nearby. Crissy field helped hype the locals for what was to be somewhat lengthy but easier than expected process. We spoke by email with Paolo Kosslick Schwartz. Whose name I hope I'm saying correctly. And who is the Public Affairs Manager for the Golden Gate Bridge Highway and Transportation District? He said an interesting fact about the Golden Gate Bridge is. It was completed ahead of schedule and under budget. A rarity in today's construction world bridge was completed in May of nineteen thirty seven. Six months ahead of schedule. It cost about thirty nine million dollars to build which equals about five hundred million in today's dollars. Not only to the bridge. Make a name for itself as a relatively quick and painless project as far as massive constructions go at also made a mark on history with its construction procedures and safety measures Kozlik Short said at the Golden Gate. Bridge was a pioneering project for protecting workers by requiring bridge builders to wear hard hats and installing the first safety net for bridge workers. I'm proud that the legacy of safety lives on the Golden Gate Bridge today. Although eleven men did die construction which was not unheard of in that risky era of building a safety net suspended under the floor of the bridge during construction saved the lives of nineteen men who became known as the half way to Hell Club but remember. Strauss's original plans for spectacle cantilever suspension hybrid bridge while his staff led by. Charles Ellis found the idea to be practical from an engineering standpoint. Some experts started to raise questions. Ls brought on Professor George F Swain of Harvard University. And Leon Moore's AF- who designed New York's Manhattan Bridge to serve on a board of consultants for the project and Moore's F was not sold on the design in August of nineteen twenty nine the board appointed Moore's F and a couple other engineers to serve alongside Strauss as the advisory board of Engineers at some point in their discussions sleep exact date being unknown. The board decided to shift from Strauss's original proposal to a simple suspension bridge design the Golden Gate Bridge a report of the chief engineer written by Strauss in September of Nineteen. Thirty seven doesn't give details on the transition from his originally proposed design to the Moors F inspired suspension span but simply states in the interval which elapsed any advantages possessed by the cantilever suspension. Type Bridge had practically disappeared on recommendation of the chief engineer. The cantilever suspension type was abandoned in favor of the simple suspension type. There was another mysterious drama. During the design process as well while Ellis was responsible for directing the thousands of calculations required Strauss unceremoniously fired him in nineteen thirty one and handed his job over to his assistant to this day. Ellison is rarely mentioned in discussions of the bridge but back to that design. A perhaps the most recognizable feature of the bridge is. It's eye-popping Hugh but please don't call it Red Kosslick Schwartz said International. Orange is these signature. Color of the Golden Gate Bridge. The color was chosen. As the primary color of the bridge by consulting architect Irving Morrow who noticed the red lead primer of the steel arriving mills on the East Coast? He thought the Red Primer would serve the dual purpose of making the bridge. Stand out for ships and planes and the dense fog while blending in with the natural beauty of the area surrounding the bridge after much. Study and debate the color we so closely identify with the Golden Gate Bridge. Today was selected for the project and we can think. Irving Morrow for the Golden Gate Bridge IS STINK. Hugh today the Golden Gate Bridge is a critical transportation link between San Francisco and Marin County the one point seven mile or two point seven kilometer main span carries about one hundred and twelve thousand vehicles every day and not only can the number of roadway lanes dedicated to the southbound or northbound be modified throughout the day to accommodate shifting traffic patterns but visitors are welcome to walk and bike the length of the landmark over two billion vehicles have crossed the Golden Gate Bridge going both north and south since its opening to traffic on May twenty eighth of Nineteen thirty seven.

Jason Beem Horse Racing Podcast--Saturday Golden Gate Fields Preview 6/13/20
"Narrow. Maximum security has been defeated king for a day. This is the Jason Beam racing podcast brought to you by twin spires, your daily home for horse, Racing News Interviews, wagering discussions and more. Here's your host, Jason. BE Walk One art. Saturday preview show. Today looking ahead to the Saturday card from beautiful golden gate fields. We had David Duggan the general manager of Golden. Gate, on to Wednesday's show, Wednesday right. Gary Mandela was on. Tuesday, but we talk so g G. F Course San Francisco. Mile coming up on Sunday if they're feature, but we're going to talk about the Saturday program. Eleven race at Golden Gate fields, good mix of synthetic and turf, racing a stakes race. The Alcatraz and let's dive right in my My favorite bed at Golden Gate is there early. Pick five. Early pick five has fifteen percent low takeout in the late one has the twenty three point, six, eight or twenty two point six eight. Normal, California, pick fiber exotic takeout. I should say. It's it seems like it's only the early one in northern earn in northern cal that has that low take. Rates always like to to take a look at that and have a little bit of a contrarian opinion in the first race, the feel of seven four thousand nine winners of to live to go a mile. And waverly way is to favor on the outside in the morning line at nine to five for a one espinoza. WHO's seven Pant Apprentice? WHO's gotten off to a pretty fast start at Golden Gate? Fields doing doing very very well, and the this horse has had sixteen tries total, and many of them have been a winners in fact over ten of them have been against winners in his kind of. You know started out in the starter fifties, which is usually for the good maiden breakers there at Golden Gate, and those are not easy races, so drops into the twelve five nine twos, and then down to four onto, and has been very competitive in the foreign on twos and taking money most of the time, but has not yet broken through in last time finished fourth at four to five at the same distance same condition and you know it's okay. It's third off layoff, but it's third off the the covert shutdown layoff, so it's really third start in twenty eight days for this one. And I'm just I just thought there was. There's a lot of parody in this first race. It seems like everybody's kind of running speed figures in the same ballpark the four American royalties to to one on the morning line, and I think you can make a pretty big case for even though the horses one for twenty two you know last time just missed when finally dropped to this level had been running at the twelve, five and sixty. Sixty two five nine two levels, and so I thought this was a very good chance for this one who almost got the win last time I finished second to to go gate to wire, but I like the one totally normal here for Jeff Jeff Mets is Oh for ten at Golden Gate Fields Right now with no seconds and no thirds. Jeff mets is a better trainer than that he's. He's not A. Over ten off the board kind of guy, and this particular horses, coming out of a start fifty that was on the turf, and didn't run a jump, but if you go to back in an optional thirty on the turf at. Arizona in. Paradise this one was very very competitive, finishing third and now gets to drop down. This is a big big class. Drop for this horse. Obviously the last one is concerning, but you know the win optional thirty on the grass at Turf Paradise. We haven't seen this one yet. On the synthetic I mean that's the question, but this horses best races have been on the grass so if the price stays up because of Jeff's not doing so hot, I think this one is a is a really really interesting play in this particular race. I think the the question is. Can anybody kind of catch the four who figures to be somewhat loosened lead it made it very well could be the favorites upfront by themselves, and then we'll see who who pushes who are who let's go, but I thought the one was a pretty decent alternative here in a race where? Both of the favorites you know in these non winters of two races I I really liked to try to find horses that haven't been stuck at that level for too long and totally normal the one that's been at that level for a little while, but has been at a much much running. It's much much tougher at that particular level, the not that condition I should say non level, not price level, so the other ones have proven who they are, and and you know. The four of the seven could win and you know kind of. Be a logical, priced horse but I just think there's so much upside on on the one, and maybe even the two of owner as well as as another possible one to me. There's just very separating this field. It's almost a race where. Depending on kind of who I liked what I liked later I would consider spreading pretty wide. I would definitely toss the seven if that horse wins I'm just I'm never going to have that horse at up to two one price and so I don't want that one on any my tickets, unless I'm really confident in some good price singles later on the second race on the Cardi Meeting Twenty, five thousand six furlongs over the all weather course and A my optics plot. It kinda looked like the number. Two values would be very very dangerous in this race, so there's on paper. Not a lot of speed. In fact, there's really none yet. There is a first timer in Hudson Hessian the three for Andy Matheson Anti Mathis is having a big big year, golden gate fields, and in general. He's not a huge first time barn, and you know this is a horse that they pay twenty five thousand for the sire fee It's home bread and their debut in for twenty five thousand, so they're either being very aggressive, or they think this is just where the horse fits, but values has not been on the lead before, but when dropped down to made twenty-five ran a much improve racing was pretty tactical through A. A twenty two one speed so utilizing the optics plot. They're thinking that there's a chance this one's on the lead, and if that's the case I think values is going to be very very dangerous it's worth. Noting the five musket powder is jumping up class. They're actually doubling the class level which you don't see that often for maidens, unless they just can't find another spot, but the sources ran decently at the maiden twelve five label. What's interesting is the horse has been beaten by open links each time, but it's finished third second and second, and was pretty close till the last. You know sixteenth. In the last one, going a mile, so cuts back in here. And You know I, guess they're they're thinking. The distance was just not the best thing for this one, but I thought I thought that one was a little bit of a a wake-up underneath kind You can certainly make a case for the six time surprise who was running against St, bread maiden specials last time and was not getting. Crushed in the debut and the speed figure came back pretty good, and then the seven warmaker John Martin is back in in his. You know he's one for six so far in his his comeback, but you know gets horseback from Dean Pederson who had the horse down at at Sanita in Anita Shippers of course at Golden, gate always very dangerous. It's a tricky law. Race I thought I thought there was My inclination was after looking at the first couple of races. If I was GONNA, do a a pick five, it was either like okay do I. Because I is is quite wide open, but I liked the one enough as a price. Chance that I think I'd probably stick there and then kind of use my spread here because this race. That I just thought had many many possibilities You know there's just so much room for improvement on a lot of these horses. So that was where I was kind of struggling to get much separation. See kind of who I liked better than each other like you said on the plot. It looks like the two would be really really salty, but when horses have only made one or two starts. There are so many there such a chance that they'll show increased speed this time because a lot of times with the gate and everything. They just don't know what's going on and so. I thought it was I thought the pace picture was possibly a little more muddled than the the plot was was giving me. Move onto the third race on the card, a sixty to fifty non winners of two going six furlongs again and. cyclops, the number two I think a logical type was fifth at this level last time, but prior to that had been running speed figures that would make that one really really competitive in here I always start my handicapping with the optics plot just because I. Think it gives me a pretty good Overlap of kind of everything I'm going to be looking at before I really dive in the past performances, and on the plot they have cyclops, looking quite strong as a potential closer and so the speed look to be the number six ice on fire. Who last time went wire-to-wire? Against Maiden Eight, so this is a very logical next spot sixty to fifty. And if this one is loan, speed I thought could be Super Super Dangerous Go in the six furlongs I mean they did not really face pressure at any point in the last are kind of kicked away in Midstretch, and then one but to me that was this one is a candidate for the The wakeup call angle in the sense that horses sometimes you know. They linger around the Maidan ranks for a little while they win, and they've kind of the light bulb goes off and next thing you know they they win again and this wants to to one of the morning light, so it's not like you're getting any kind of price in here, but. Just from a purely a purely angle you know winner. Looking that one I think makes a whole lot of sense. Red Star has been a little bit of a closer typing at Golden Gate. Fields I always want horses that are closing. I mean it's not horses. Go wire-to-wire there sometimes, but it's not like a dirt track where you know. Sometimes sources will set slow paces, and still get swallowed up happens quite a bit, and so I just want somebody who's finishing. In you know. And this is horse Red Star of the four who generally is always finishing, and so I think that's always a good sign here. It's the second off a little bit of a layoff. The covert layoff will call it. for a CJ Tamayo who's been having a sensational season and. I think Red Star as a little bit of a price. If you're looking for an alternative to the two or six, this to me was a little bit of a logical race, and you know there's certainly others who could wake up. I was finding it difficult to get around the the top couple, and would probably try to single the six if if I was playing long horizontal just because I think that there's a big chance at that one improves, and in runs a much better race. Folks on the Saturday program at Golden Gate Fields, we stretch out to a mile to five thousand maiden claimer, bottom level maidens. and. This was A. This is a classic example of a favourite who I think. A lot of people are gonNA single. You know and probably going to be short price and I just don't like at all. silver fury the number six for Blake, heap I had run down. Southern California had been off for a long time. I'm guessing due to an injury. They brought the horseback at Golden. Gate and in two starts at on the synthetic has run to good seconds for maiden twelve five, so this drop makes perfect sense, but this is the worst. It's Oh for fifteen and you know. Kind of last time was head and head midstretch before kind of giving away a little bit late and so. I don't know that the distance is what this one wants. His horse had primarily been sprinting. In fact, the couple of routes in the page people turf, and they did not go very well so I think this one is going to be a super short price. The speed figures and everything in the class stand out a fair bit in this one, so started looking for alternatives and horses, who I think might be kinda running on at the end and came up with the the nine is I think the the most interesting one for Hugo Herrera Golden Grand, but the one Matson an priced at us. rappers twelve to one. The seven Rowdy roosters twelve one I think they're all going to be running at the end. I think even number five Pegasus Sprint might become a little bit because. The numbers eight and ten both I think figure to be prominent early on along with silver fury, and so it's not like silver. Fury is going to waltz. I have to think they're going to be aggressive with silver fear again because the result was pretty good last time, the number six, going to lead and so I was kind of looking for a closer here because Muskoka to the outside now this one. This is one of those horses. It scares me, but I don't WANNA be scared into adding low price tickets low horses to my ticket just because they're going to New Barn and Jack Steiner's barn. That wins very much off the claim twenty four percent. And they claimed this one for five thousand last time out. It was kind of battled for the lead and then faded. Over ten with one second place finish, and that was on the grass. Sandy differ fifty thousand, so this is just a different horse now than it was. There taken the blinkers off the one effort without the blinkers didn't go well, but again that was a different horse ago, that was. The source of obviously so much better back then they they dropped the horse from sixty, two, thousand, five, hundred to eight thousand, when it kept Golden Gate, and it managed the third, which is fine and then last time at two to five off the board and got claimed here, so if Jack can get this horse turnaround and win a short price, salute to him, but I just can't be a part of of one like that, so I'm looking to the nine, the seven, the five three, no basically I like every odd number in this race, and I hope the even run even numbers Tucker each other out a little bit, but Yeah, it's. It's an interesting. It's an interesting battle. I think that's going to go on I in that race and I'm real curious to see if some fury or Muskoka can. Step up, but I can't take short price. Horses like that we move out of the grass for the fifth rates, the final leg of the early pick five and American camp at first flash down on the inside, I thought made a lot of sense has just been kind of competitive at this level on the grass last time Morton run on the grass in quite a while effects since the the maiden breaking and just seemed. To relish it a little bit you know I. It's a nice performance plane. Ride has El Chapo whose coming off a win on the synthetic. It also run on the turf and running. Okay third there was some. This is just a competitive race for a non winner of two I thought there was some You know decent horses in here. Number six diamond blitz is I. think Maybe the the story of the race, potentially the speed this one. They claimed for twenty five at Santa Anita. This is going back to twenty two thousand nine now, and they ran it back for forty thousand got crushed, and then goes away for almost a year and comes back here for. Half, the price that they claimed for owner Ringo Long. What a great name Ringo Wong! I figured with Jonathan Wong. There's John John Wong Ring along. I wonder if there's a George and Paul Long. That would be amazing. But. Yeah I again. I. Just I'm so scared of horses like this. That are long layoffs. Big drops all that kind of stuff. You know. They're gonNA win sometimes, but they're always going to be short prices because they're form at its best is. You know is is good and better than a lot of who they're going to be facing My Man Leo. Vuckovich show owns part of the eight Tequila Blanco Leo. said the horse just you know. Doesn't have a whole ton of finish and so MIATA. Even though he's been heating up a little bit. I'm going to take Leo's words if Leo's wrong in this horse wins and he, he's probably cash in a big ticket and laughing at all of us, but I wasn't too interesting that when I definitely thought American camp was was probably the most interesting and L. Para show possibly as a second one in Boston is the number three is. is totally illogical. I kinda liked the inside. Three horses the most, but I wanted to would be the ones I would most steer to. Poison is getting a pretty big class drop, and certainly certainly make sense, but not one at a lower price that I think I wanNA. Put on a utterly pick five tickets so I. I thought there was a couple of places to possibly stand in the early pick five, the one in the first store, the six in the third, and may be spread around a little bit after that an eight thousand runners at five furlongs in the. Sixth race, and that's five furlongs on the main track, and this one I thought was a little tricky, because too big field thirteen horses entered and. The speed and the favorites. I, mean obviously go and five furlongs. You're not you're not. You want to be up close, or at least theoretically you do because it's a short race and so often their one by sprint horses, the the four has been battling on the early lead, and Kinda faded a little bit last time at the twelve five levels, so it's a little bit of class. Break Ads. The blinkers for Leonard Powell Julian Khuttan, not off to the hottest of starts should add, and so he's on board their six charging home for Frank Alvarado. Manny Bardiya another one who showed speed faded a little bit late. For eight thousand, which was this level at five furlongs last time so I, was kinda trying to think of maybe someone that could pick them up and I kinda lead myself to the number five jazzy Einstein again a two miles, a very good trainer, twenty four percent on the year, and not somebody who's really cranks up first time out, and this horse went six furlongs broke, very had didn't have any speed at all and Kinda came with an ice run. And that was for twelve five, so the price is dropping a little bit. This one has to be closer up to make. A better effort, but second time out I think that's entirely possible that this one is a more fit. Be Closer up. Be More Seymour speed. Draws Water Hernandez so I don't want. Is the kingpin at Golden? Gate right now, so I. Don't know that you're going to get. The price that you want if it's if it's to water or whatever it is, but I thought that one was very interesting and the eleven miss. Von G nation makes complete sense is four to one online and kind of a stalker type. WHO's put in two good second-place runs in two starts Tim McCann has had. This horse spotted well, and you know if they do come back a little bit. This one is certainly going to be the first one to get Get the jump on everybody so makes a Lotta Sense. I thought perfect mood. The eight was underneath long-shot type. That could be interesting. Five furlongs. If you get a long shot, who you know, who maybe ran one or two racist didn't show any speed. If you get one that Kinda show some speed, they'll stick around for the five furlong, and so you can really get some nice prices underneath. Especially, if those top to do battle you just got to be creative a little bit. I mean in maiden races horses with very little experience. It's so important. Remember how much improvement is possible with these horses I mean I talk about it all the time like one of my favorite angles. Know Horse just. Does it run much first time out, and because they just you know they don't know what's going on, and so you give them some experience you give them more training and the next thing you know. They wake up in their price because they didn't run it all in first career start, but so that's the first six races.

Everybody's weekend is going well and getting ready for a couple of good days of racing around the country of course Churchill Santa Anita Belmont all going on right now. But. We are focused at Golden Gate fields where it is closing weekend at the track by the bay. The featured event, the seventh race, seventy five thousand dollars. Alcatraz Mile on the turf and I. Think the one of the puzzles of this racist that there's not a ton of turf form now we obviously know that synthetic turf is not the most difficult transformation to make, but the morning line favorite, so the two horses that morning and favorites to the two at the most turf experience governance on the outside is three to one second choice for Jonathan. Wong and we don't have to explain. Jonathan wins a tons of races at Golden Gate fields and This one's coming off. A wire-to-wire score on the grass seems that it's best if it's right up on the lead I. I mean the Times. where it was not it did not go very well, so and then the other horse. That's the actual favorite is Ken. Tyrrell, the number five for Richard Mandella who ships up, and he'll send a few up golden gate fields every so often in this one one of them who was sprinting on the grass, sanity, those five and a half furlong sprint that was way way back which we know is not the recipe for success going five and a half at Santa Anita, prior to that had gone a mile at Santa Anita and ran a pretty good race for beating length and a quarter behind KP. all-systems-go, and you know some decent types, but. To me, I don't I don't know that the the form is all that much there to warrant such big favoritism, because a lot of the horses with synthetic racing experience, a better nick, who of course won the Golden Nugget and the gold rush two of the top two year old races at Golden Gate. Fields they. They went down to southern. California they wanted to try know deeper waters against breads. Breads down in so cal It went okay, not great, but gets back to what I think is the sources preferred surface you know the pace battle is potential detriment to trip, nick, but you know even the three a journey to freedom, the number one Zimba Warrior, like these horses. You know they. They're showing pretty decent form that I don't think. Is that far behind these these top? Top two Indian peak, the number seven last time for Quin Howie good second against optional eighty types down at Santa. Anita comes back This horse was third in the El Camino. Real Derby earlier this year behind as coast so I thought there was plenty of ways to try to beat. The favorites I. Don't think it sets up. The best for governance is going to have heat upfront. Upfront and I don't know that Ken. Tyrrell is all that much better than these ones I. Think I think a lot of that. Low morning. Line is because of the connections, Juan, Hernandez and Richard Mandell and while they certainly merit support I. Don't think they're that much better than the rest of the field so I was I was thinking that was a good race to go against the two logical. The eight race on the card we move forward. It's a forty thousand dollar claiming event for the Phillies at a mile, and there's some good runners here. Many be has never be enough. Who came over from? Europe ran third at this level in the first star Reggie, Miller the number two I'm really excited to see this one is a emerald downs based stakes winner, actually one the. Emerald staff a couple of years ago, went up to hastings in one steak. The steak last year old, and she was not informed at all last year and then makes her comeback this year. twenty-five claimer at Golden Gate and winds pretty solidly so I don't know if it was just the class relief if it was the break what it was, but In two thousand nineteen was just not going her way, but obviously back and form a little bit I. thought maybe a little bit interesting. This race actually has a few folks. I know that our owners in in this race Darren Paul, who owns the four blaze beauty, longtime friend of mine from the Seattle area and placing beauty won the the got steam many many years ago, and has made one hundred, fifty, six, thousand Darren, but the favourite Kaffee la. I think that. Andy! Mathis could have a pretty decent day at Golden. Gate fields in this one makes a ton of sense. It's a that. He claimed last time out four forty Didn't get the lead. Which is what this horse wants and still ran onto finished second secondhand. This horse gets beat a fair bit I mean not a not a wind machine, but has done at least as of recently I mean a lot of wins early on, and so I thought worth maybe looking for someone else and I m. maybe my emerald bias is showing here, but the number eight northwest factors fifteen one David Israel's one of the guys that sits in our little group, the eighth poet Emerald downs, some certainly room for David and. This horse was a stakes winner. At Emerald one. The got steamed back in twenty eighteen. Was a a fringe stakes player. In the three year, old steaks last year, Emerald went down to Phoenix had a couple of good wins against non stakes, company tried stakes company and got beat up a little bit so. GETS BACK OUT OF STAKES COMPANY. This is certainly not an easy race, but This for me at fifteen, one on her best day is not that far behind everybody so I thought maybe a very interesting price in in what's pretty competitive race state bread maiden specials for the ninth race on the card and. Five. furlongs on the turf is the a situation which is really interesting, because there is a big full field here, you got twelve runners, and you have one that is run on the grass, and some of these sources made a start s- The number. Five carcase has ran on the grass, but down at Santa Anita. Turf sprinting only one so there's actually two that have run on grass The only one that's sprinted is the number eleven Malachi Moxie. Who's also eligible the also eligible in here the eleven and twelve would both make a ton of sense if they Ryan that said both were working at Santa Anita earlier this week, and so if they've. Got Under the as you have to wonder if they're even at or going to Golden Gate Fields I. Don't think they WANNA ship up there. Just a scratch. If nobody comes out, so I would be surprised if either one makes an appearance but. It's kind of tricky though race because you just don't. They're not turf sprinters, and so you got to try to figure out WHO's GonNa. Make the leap forward I. Think the number and I bow day. She's you know. That was a very promising debut with a good wide kicking rally. You know I never liked her for printers that come from too far behind. Certainly they get up and win sometimes, but there's not really a ton of speed on display in this race for a five furlong turf race, so to me the the. In, the puzzle was okay well. Who's going to get the lead? And and I would obviously upgrade them and it kind of led me to the outside runner Auburn streak who was on the lead before fading going six furlongs. and to me, this is a big thing against open maiden special way to Golden Gate, not state bread, and so this one draws outside. There's not a lot of their speed of course some of the other debut. Or horses only ran. One time could show improved speed this time out and certainly they're going to be sending hard, but from the outside if this one can clear. Could be super dangerous I mean had the lead into the stretch a big price last time out you know, got past and finish six, but that was going six, and that was against open, maiden special weight, and it was on the synthetic so. Twenty two one morning line on Auburn streak. If if we get it, I mean I'm all for trying. Those are the kind of those kind of twenty two ones I want ones that have really haven't done anything bad. I mean her or his debut rather was fine. showed speed and you know has a couple of new things going on a little set of class drop outside post position as opposed to being drawn down inside. I think there's a lot of reasons to lights on. You probably won't get twenty two one but I think you'll still get a price so auburn street to me very very interesting in the ninth race, the Tenth Race on the program. At Golden Gate Fields me switch my program page. Six Furlong Sprint and twelve, thousand, nine, hundred two ex We so horses, which you've never want to, and then non winners of. Racist for ten thousand or less at least made claim, your start or not considered, so if you see horses with three wins and stuff like that, it's because they were for less than ten thousand, the number to drink in dialing one at the same condition to starts back, and so you think will why? How's IT still at the same condition? Well, because it's now want to win, was a non was at sixty, two fifty, and it's a maiden special weight, so there's you know. goofy conditions equal goofy things happening, so just be aware of that when you when you look at it, but. Where did I heard of my notes? Go get so much crap going on my head here. Looking for at the pace, situation I think that it's quite possible that the number six reverend Al is A. Not Loan speed should be up there. Battling and could clear off the number. One horse certainly has a lot of speed from the rail. You have to think that one is going to send and so I started kind of trying to look for potential price types that I thought might be closers or stockers. Kinda came along the number eight Roman rush for Blaine, right who? On. The optics plot looks to be in a good situation to be a good closer. I start off. The layoff was it's twenty thousand, the same condition, and was prominent before fading a little bit late at a big price, so drops down in class. Second start off the layoff and Blaine second layoff. He's a good trainer in general and Eighteen Percent Guy Jumps up to twenty four percent with that particular angle and I just think this one might fall into a pretty good little spot, and at ten to one in the morning line. I don't think the price should go down that much I mean it to me. It looks like a ten to one shot. The seven looks like should take more money to six. Take more money. The four should take more money. The three I think well. The three was the kind of interesting for me. diction who? Does seem best on the lead, and that's obviously the concern, but Dan Markel is oh for eleven right now. But he is much better trainer than that, and so I thought that one if the price warranted could be a little bit interesting we go back on the turf for the finale. The eleventh race on the card and we go to a mile in eighth on the turf which I like a lot Daniel Gate fields and You know Kinda was again. Looking like a race I thought could shape up with some some early speed I. DO think that Andy. Mathis has a big chance to win this race He's got Mo- Bob. WHO's neither to? WHO's a closer type taking pretty steep drop in class and he's got. Lifeline is two to one who won at the sixty two fifty price last time out. Just a couple of weeks back. The seven is certainly the more informed runner, the five out of form and getting the class relief. I think Andy has a big chance to win this finale. Kinda looking at maybe some some prices to get underneath if you if you do like those Andy Mathis horses on top I thought three nine and ten were all decent options. The four to once I, guess not that big price, but the threes fifteen to one and the tennis twenty two one and I think both of them should be. should become an running late. the number three sooner better got on the grass last time, and it was a starter allows. Allows four thousand and those starter loud sometimes can get tough because you get hot horses, who you know ran in a four thousand race a year and a half ago and now they're you know they're really twenty thousand dollar horses, but they're they get the condition and so and and really wasn't embarrassed in that one i. mean was was kind of close turning for home, and just got out kicked, but they went so slow like you know he wasn't going to close into those types so I thought that one was an interesting bomb to get underneath the the five of the seven and the ten number twenty one in the morning line, and another one who? You know last time. was making up some ground late. gets the apprentice again and I think that'll make a little bit of a difference, especially with the added sixteenth of a mile and you know again one who's just not that far behind a lot of these other ones the nine is low price because it's Jonathan Wong taking over. It's a horse coming over from Tampa who the form. To me is is actually worse than ten. Who's twenty two one in the morning line, but it's John Wong and his. You know he's GonNa. Get Bad because Jonathan Walk. That's kind of what it is, but I was kind of thinking five and seven with three and ten underneath the to to spice things up in the exotics, but that's just a quick look at the Saturday card from Golden Gate Fields. Of course they wrap up their spring summer season, and as we talk with David last week. He said they don't know for sure. Sure what's going on in terms of the Pharisees? I did the HR BE I. Did think said Pleasanton is going to run, so there will be a pleasant in meet coming up. I think pleasanton goes three weeks. I don't not sure if they'll try to get an expanded summer. Meet there or not, but yeah, that's kind of the situation in the northern cows. We at close up. The Golden Gate winter spring almost summer me so everybody good rest of your weekend. We'll see you back on the regular show on Monday. Long.
What Do You Know About the Golden Gate Bridge?
"For hundreds of years European explorers. Search this coastline for California's fabled cities of gold. And yet treasure hunters kept missing the entrance to one of the world's finest natural harbors. The Golden Gate. It was hidden for so long because this is what explorers would say a rocky shoreline, turbulent waters and no hint of an opening. The bay opens up three miles back from the Pacific. It's entrance is only a mile wide hard to spy from the sea. In fact, it was a land expedition that finally spotted the entrance from nearby hills two hundred and thirty years after the first Spanish ship sailed by a nineteenth century army, captain gave the passage. It's name Golden Gate. Today anyone entering the bay by sea must pass under San Francisco's most iconic structure, the Golden Gate Bridge. It's hard to imagine now. But before the bridge was built the only way across the bay was by ferry. Boats carried fifty thousand commuters awake. It's no wonder the biggest opposition to the bridge came from ferry boat operators. But at last in nineteen thirty the voters of San Francisco gave engineer Josef Strauss. The green light. Strauss said he dreamed of building the biggest thing of its kind that a man could build. His design ranks with the Empire State building in Brooklyn Bridge as a symbol of American progress, and ingenuity. The entire bridge is one point seven miles long. It's towers rise seven hundred forty six feet above the bay. To build a similar bridge today. It would cost over a billion dollars. In one thousand nine hundred thirty seven the Golden Gate made its debuts the world's longest suspension span its two main cables, reach forty two hundred feet from one tower to the other. It's called the suspension bridge because the roadway hangs from the cables the cables are held up by the two towers and anchored at either end of the bridge. And while most bridges at the time were painted black. The art deco Golden Gate was painted a reddish orange to catch the light. And make it stand out in fog.

Just Don't Call Them Buffalo: Meet the Bison of Golden Gate Park
"From Cutie at Kennedy. We are dedicated to providing the accurate information. You need during this cove in nineteen crisis and even though our routines commutes and lives look very different K. Committees award-winning coverage is still the same. Ask Your Smart Speaker to play K. Q. E. D. subscribe to our podcasts or download. The APP on your phone for our twenty four seven livestream here. We are nearly two weeks into the shelter in place lifestyle and I for one have learned a few things four days without showering probably too many doing dishes. It's basically my life now and I thought I was thankful for California's abundant parks before. But I had no idea being able to stroll six feet apart of course through. Our local parks lifts my spirits just every single time. Now one park in particular has been on my mind because we're meant to be celebrating a big anniversary this week. That was before everything got postponed of course but Golden Gate Park in San Francisco. One of the finest urban parks in the world is a hundred and fifty years old. I love this park because has so many little worlds within it on one end. You've got the Dutch windmills. That kind of loom over a carpet of tulips. The other end you hear disco beats blaring from a boombox and people are roller skating. Showing off all of their moves. But perhaps the most unexpected thing that you might find in this park is a herd of Bison if you've seen them recently you might have noticed five new baby bison were added this year. That's a gift for the parks anniversary so today. In honor of the park's birthday and those new baby bison we're GONNA take a look back at an episode from reporter Jessica Plot Check all about the Bison Paddock. I'm Olivia Price. Sit back and relax. It's Bay curious support for kick you weedy comes from Sierra Nevada Brewing Company family owned operated and argue over since nineteen eighty proud supporter of Independent. Thought whether that's online over the air or in a bottle more. At Sierra Nevada DOT COM. They're the largest mammals in North America. A male was up to two thousand pounds females. A thousand pounds. We have Betsy Bella tricks buttercup Bambi and my MRI Brune Hilda. I'll be I'll be named for Bison correct this is Sarah King from the San Francisco Zoo. She's here at the paddock to feed the bison which you should know are not the same as Buffalo. The names are often used interchangeably. These are bison buffalo are only from Old World Continents Africa and Asia these by from the bay area. They're adapted to the Great Plains where the weather's a lot more extreme they can actually use their head. Almost like a snowplow and move snow out of the way in order to get to the dry shrubs. Mosses Lichen that are underneath all of that snow in order to maintain their body weight and make it through the winter. These hairy beasts attract a lot of attention. How many Keith. Robinson is a groundskeeper at Golden Gate Park and often finds himself answering visitor questions seven now we got him fromer ranch into no. They're actually quite peaceful well. They haven't always been that way. We'll get to that but right now. We're more interested in a question from one of our listeners. Paul Irving so I'm a cyclist and I cycle by here all the time but it's pretty rare that I actually stop and walk around the paddock. We walked along the entire fence enclosing the pen the bison roaming around this big field with some small green hills. The Richmond neighborhood is just a few blocks away and sometimes you can smell the ocean breeze finding the Bison. Here is unexpected. Maybe even weird. Which brings us to Paul's question. What's the story behind the Bison in Golden Gate Park? It's actually pretty easy to find the answer just a couple of weeks ago. I decided well really should get often read the signs and so came and this answered a few of my questions. That's right there's a sign it touches on the basics but we get a lot of questions about the bison so I dug up some more information to start off. Here's Paul reading the sign until one hundred years ago. Thirty to sixty million. Bison Roam North America's prairies when frontiers Mun told of a herd five miles wide and twelve miles long bison were all over the West greasing from northern Mexico all the way up through Canada Times. Were good for the. Bison until European Americans expanded into the West The Bison Habitat was criss crossed by railroads and turned into farms imported cattle brought new diseases to the bison then there was the killing bison were killed for food skins and to deprive the plains. Indians of their primary food source license skins were turned into leather and their bones. Were GROUND UP TO MAKE FERTILIZER AND FINE. China but many animals were killed for sport their competitions to see who could kill the most bison and tourists on trains would shoot the animals from their seats leaving carcasses where they fell in the. Us government clashed with native Americans over land. The army encouraged the rampant slaughter. When Colonel Even told hunters kill every? Buffalo. You can every buffalo dead is an Indian gone eventually there were only about a thousand bison left many of the surviving animals were raised on farms and bread with cows most of the Bison we see today have a little Cowan them on February thirteenth eighteen ninety one when the species was close to extinction the first bison was brought to Golden Gate Park in Golden Gate Park was created in the eighteen seventies. The idea was to recreate a little bit of the wild west. This is Phil Ginsburg. The general manager of San Francisco Recreation and parks so I sent and several other animals were actually. I put in a paddock. Which is very close to work. He's our stadium. Is Today the bread? The animals to help bring them back from the brink of extinction by nineteen ninety eight more than one hundred calves have been born in the captive breeding program and the total number of Bison in North America exceeded two hundred thousand. The population growth is due to conservation. And because we started raising them on farms for meat and now with only bisects the park has stopped breeding them. Today we have only females just keeps everything a little bit more calm as it were when Bulls roamed. The heard. Things could get pretty aggressive. One tried to mall a policemen on horseback and they were known for charging zookeeper. Sarah King says that they can run pretty fast to they. Can't they can run up to thirty miles per hour and they can actually swim really far too. They can swim Over half a mile so they're very strong. Animals is their dominance within this heard. Even though there's no bulls there is yes. You don't see aggressiveness that you would see on wildlife shows but there is definitely a matriarch. That would be betsy. She's the one that comes first into the feed patch. She'll go to the food first and then it trickles down from there. The Bison the paddock today are not descendants of the park's original herd the herd has been replaced a couple times when the female bison get old Mosey on to the golden planes in the Sky. I was surprised to learn the bison have been in the park for over a hundred years. Have there been any crazy incidents. I am so glad you asked the hat because there have the bison have escaped though. My favorite incident is a rumor a bunch of students allegedly let them bison out and they were later found roaming in the Richmond. Oh my gosh. Can you imagine like strolling along the street in the Richmond and coming face to face with a bison kind of love that? Thank you very much for the story Jessica. Oh yeah we made a video where you can meet the whole lady. Bison gang had to bake curious dot org and check it out this episode first aired in two thousand seventeen since then we've lost some beloved bison like Brune Hilda but like I mentioned at the beginning. Five new cavs joined the heard. Recently off they were gift from Senator Dianne Feinstein and her husband. Alan Price Bake. Curious is usually made in San Francisco at number supported k. Q. E. D. But right now it's made in closets and under duvet covers all over the bay area. Thanks for listening.

Never go to the doctor really weird pain in my nuts. Like every now. And then like do you ever have that? Yeah. Right after his head right now in agreement an odd pain. Yeah. Guys nuts right after I fuck income. Come on. Iheart hurts after I come. Yeah. Me too. Never feel true. Love. That's the only thing my heart and my nuts having common. No, I no matter of fact, I have that random pain, and I went to the doctor for like a year ago. And because I felt like not really a lump like a sort of thin. We never know. You're right so much as a guy that it's like, well, if you got a lump then you have to cut off in your dead nuts. Which is always fun to have the doctor feel your fucking ball. That's always interesting. Dr. Also, do I have aids? Reading you poetry. Sucking on one. All right now, turn to the left and kiss. The doctor is a truly awful experience. Yeah. I like I had had. No I'd had that random pain and felt like a thing in my ball sack for a minute. So I went and the doctor literally what he said was he's like feeling my nut sack because there was like do not supposed to do. So the doctor has three fingers in my asshole. And he's moving them in and out of. Making gang signs inside of my Anna's. Yeah. Totally shadow puppets. We call it shadow puppets. And I. And I so because the mass wasn't on a ball. It was like in the middle of the sack. I can't believe you're listening to my podcast that I'm saying this. This is about suicide. Yeah. Totally. Anyway, he's got his hands on my balls. And then he killed himself. Everyone who touches tips balls themselves. Yeah. This is the best final destination I've ever seen. Totally. They call my balls. The ring. Nobody like felt this thing. And he immediately goes, oh, yeah. That's not cancer. And I was like what is it? And he's like sometimes alike. A ball set can have a mass like a sort of massive cells in the middle. And if it gets like big enough, we would have to surgically remove it. Big enough. Oh, big totally dick because my. Big enough, the two larger I go. Inches on. Because I'm a man big fuck in man, I was talking to. The fuck is in my girlfriend, and like, it's funny. How like she she's from Canada. So she's used to going to the doctor all the time like Atta women, you know, everybody only in Canada. Everybody only has one. That he only got one ball. Yeah. So. So now, she she goes to the doctor here in America. But it's it's so much. I was not to be like dumb to make a point. But I think it's interesting. I was really like I think like healthcare is really a women's rights issue because it's like women have to go to the doctor so much the man, and there's so much more like that just happens. Totally go. Go to deal with the UTI. None of this shit happens for me like all this is like very very common. Well, actually. If you're doing it, right? Actually, I, you know, they don't talk about this a lot, but men actually get a period multiple times a day. Get real come to your own lunch. Have you ever heard of the two-thirty feeling that's your daily period as a man? I like how five hour energy is advertised to just like is your job just suck. And you're falling one. Yeah. Take this supplement. You know, kick start your heart from the Amazon. Also, like, maybe the two-thirty feeling is what happens when you eat a cheeseburger for lunch. Look forward to. I know you're terrible fucking job. Whenever I had like a job in like office world for comedy office world. Yes. World. The specific when I worked for ridiculousness always have three food trucks show up outside, and they'd always be different. So like the ability to resist like. Burger truck showed up, and like everything was always like a specialty thing that showed up and it was like cheap issue. Yeah. Man. I just fucking didn't give a phone or so long. Fuck an office. Man. It sucks. I also got three food trucks. Way. Rob dear dick is all e all free these trucks. Fuck I wiped out. Well, that's five right there. Dude. Thanks for writing. That do you know, he's actually really religious. I've heard this. So I think when he doesn't air Christ. It means something. The air Christ when he doesn't and it's like powerful who invented the air Christ g g Jesus Christ. Got it. Christ Christ cry. Well, how are you man? How's this last week? Ben for you. We haven't talked a little bit texting. Yeah. I'm good, man. I'm like slowly. But surely, I've talked about it a little I'm slowly. But surely pulling out of that bed summer, depression that I had and. Yeah. I took a frisbee to the nose slept for the rest like. Like cold for tenure? What do you think it was about the summer specifically? I mean, you're on the road a lot traveling time. It was really just when everything hit me about how hard everything has been and will be careerwise. And it's just like. Life is just a long series of like. You know, causing effect and a lot of that like the problem with that processes, it takes you a while to recognize something as an effect of that. 'cause if that makes sense for sure so like that was what I was doing. I was like coming to grips with the fact that I kind of lost all my momentum. And then also dealing with reality that to get out of us a slump or whatever you would call it like a lull in work and more than that a lull and energy. I was going to have to create my own momentum, which is hard, especially when you don't have the energy of a twenty five year old anymore. It's easy to second. Guess that? Also, totally 'cause like usually like kick start any sort of like life change, or whatever like you have to these. So damn sure. Yeah. Whereas like, I don't know you really hang in this kind of space of not knowing in waiting for something good to happen, especially if you feel like you have like options that are kind of like. Yeah. There. Yeah. And fuck that waiting shit, man. I I do it a lot like working towards your own. Yeah. Like, I don't know you're on success your own career owning everything. Well, there's also a thing that happens like, so, you know, the phenomenon of like if you have one thing to do say, if you have the dishes to do likely, you'll just go do the dishes, but if you have to do the dishes clean, your floors, clean your bathroom, cleaner bedroom. There's a pretty big likelihood you won't do any of it. This is honestly like a great point. This is a philosophy that I had to really apply to myself, which is the like, you know, the the coffee Cup container like at the floor of your car there. And you just let it be there, you let trash being your and you let it just. Wait, you go. I'll get it later or whatever. But it's all about this kind of like taking the sort of like really proactive stance of just like, oh, get it. Now incremental I'm going to just like stay on top of this stuff. And I'm not going to let little things like that. Go stupid. I mean, it's not stupid, man. It's it's really that's really insightful in and true. I think that the where and that's like a thing. It's hard to get yourself in. That mindset. It took me years and years. I fall out of it a lot. But that's one of the things that got me out of the Prussian, dude. Like, I keep my car clean. I keep my house clean. Yeah. Only white people are allowed in. You keep it in the front. Yeah. Actually, I haven't been in your carnal while. Well, you gotta go in there, man. When I got in. I did ask if that was a rental repainted the interior. No pain terrible. And it is not comfortable, and you will die from fumes because I repainted every day. No. But it's about the problem that I'm having now is that like. In order. So like the things that I want to do I want to make TV show. I that is a very difficult thing. But I see. Yeah. I wanna make family guy. And it's but the thing about that is like the difference between that and having to do the dishes cleaner floor clean, your living room bedroom, is that those are all little things that you can do that you have signposts along the way whereas making a TV show is like there are signposts along the way. But even those are the biggest undertaking ever. So it's like these these things that I wanna do and the the like the pads I've gone down in the past to get me to a place where people give a shit about me in comedy, which also I wanna say stike giving me shit. I know that people give shit about me and comedy. And I know that I'm in a fine place. I mean like that toward that type of work, and like momentum wise like you come and go in and out of the like comedies. Zeitgeist that. I'm just whatever, you know, what I'm saying. Those tasks are so big, and they're also so constant 'cause like do you do the dishes, then you're done for like at least a day? All I'm saying is. That this type of like this type of thing that you want wanting to like make a good living at comedy. It is a much bigger and more persistent task than that. I'm harping on that because if you're listening, and you relate to that. I think it's important to remind yourself how fucking hard that is to cut yourself breaks. But keep at it very few career insights, unless it's about stand up or. Yeah. I mean like if you work in an office. I can't totally tell you exactly what your experiences, but. Yeah, I feel the same thing man when it comes to comedy. It's really weird because it's like like, I think it's a very real thing. One of the most someone ever said to me about comedy and ex girlfriend of mine while we were dating it was I was young and comedy. And I was sad that I was at that time booked less than I had been a year before. And she was like, she was like, you know, I think the people that are happiest in comedy or the people that know, they're not always going to be the cool kid. And so that's kind of what you and I are dealing with right now. I think we're like cool shit. Cool. We've gotten to some good places, but and. But then, but now we're just at a place where like a couple years ago, we were like booked on a bunch of festivals in and getting a bunch of work and shit. And then you sort of like fall out of that. And then you go back into it. But the problem is that in a lull if you're in a little, and you don't have money. It's like fuck, dude. Thing about this industry for sure is like having to pretend like everything's fine. Background. Yeah. Also, while the city is melting down. Insane. Fires cousins fucking house burned down. Dude. Are you serious just found this out yesterday? And I talked to him today. He's okay. He lives in Malibu. So luckily, like, I mean reasoning lived in Malibu is that he has money. So I will say his family are fine. I was talking to a friend of mine today. And like, here's the funny thing is like so many articles are like, you know, they Chris jenner's houses burning down or whatever like they're like rich people Malibu's houses. That's all of Hollywood. Yeah. There's a millionaire's house. You throw a fuck in stone. You'll find a millionaire like you could find like a celebrity in every party like down. There's no like, oh like, you know, celebrity specific fucking bullshit. For people who lose their home. Yeah. It's a community. It's a regular ask him in. I mean when the one thing about it is if you are wealthy, and you lose your home. Luckily, that doesn't mean that you are fucked, and that's what I mean about my cousin like he has a good support system. So I talked to him today. He's staying at a friend's place in mid city who is like outta town for a while. So he and his kid and his wife will be okay, and they can regroup and they have the money to like go to mammoth for a week and chill and not freak out. Does he own the store Ross? Yeah. The Ross Ross dress for less. The Hampton ends. Ross dress for less. We're both. That's why we have a patriot guys. Patriots thing real quick. Thank you so much for listening to business buddies. I'm Ross dress for less. I'm hampton. All right sharks here, my talk. All right. Honestly, if I ever did a shark tank pitch. Spaghetti pockets? No god. That sounds fucking awful. Do it sounds so. Man pockets, but it's the Gaddi. I've made them. They're great. Have you really? I made I made them like little little bread lows. Really? And it's good. I loved it was awesome. And now I see there is little. Little product was like little wait. Hold on a minute. Did you make ninety bread loaves garb out the center and put back ten years this explain anything? Well. At the time. I had my parents kitchen for resources, and like what I could use will. But but here's the thing. I'm Mike fascinated at your ability to make either make tiny bread loaves or get spaghetti into it or both. Okay. You make a loaf. How did you really make tiny bread loaf? Yeah. You make Brad. Okay. Carve out all of the inside. Okay. Scoop in spaghetti. This is literally big hover it up. And then you eat it. You add in cheese more sauce, man, what a trip so it's just bread and spaghetti. Break. It down Getty sauce. There's no noodles. There's tons of noodle. All right noodles instead of inside of the bread loaf you out. So it's only bread crust. It's the way Elvis used to eat food Elvis bread loaf. He would he would dig out all the shit, and he would just lay in like bananas and peanut butter, and like, you know, mashed potatoes and fucking licorice. Okay. I'm gonna say two things first you need to know that what with me, I need to remind you that I love and support you very much. All right. And Secondly, go ahead. Yet. I really think it's unfair that you're acting like what you did was normal. No. It's not okay. As long as we agree on that. Eating disorders. Issues men Elvis man, me and Elvis like have a very lateral thinking where we're like, dude. Of course, you would take out all the insides of bread loaf and fill it up with basically a soup of your favorite shit. Dude. I used to make instant Rahman and then put corn and hot dogs in it. You know, what I mean like I used to just buy ground beef and cheese and just eat that I would make. I make a bagel, and then I would just add cake frosting on top of the totally dude bagel is the worst kind of bread to E. Absolutely. It's like samurai Katana steel. It's folded and folded and folded and made the super dance like it's like five loaves of bread compressed into a bagel Elvin. Thank you. Eight that every day. Yeah. I think my favorite was probably the peanut butter tortilla. Pretty sure I invented that. One. Yeah. Me peanut butter. Dave. George Washington Carver. Peanut butter door DEA. Captain vetting peanut butter things. People ask them to stop back on the bagel thing. Can I tell you a story that I'm pretty sure is going to make one of the two of you throw up. Okay. Aristotle fuck and since he's which to starve he's been weird. Okay. So I. When I hadn't drink much at all. I think I had like a shot of gin thrown it been like what is that? I've gotten. Yeah. I got drunk on beer like once or twice. My friends that I went to the jersey shore and like most of them. Yeah. So all right here, we go. The shore. Paulie? The spike. Jersey short to. But it definitely like not in that way. You know, like it never is that the shore is really fun. It gets like the people in that show are everywhere there, but also normal people, it's just the beach. That's all it's just the fucking beach. And every town has a boardwalk with like Carney games. It's awesome. You depew toes? It did the fuck and ocean you get pregnant. Never leave. I'll always going to have a little bit of seaside at my heart. Take me back to Wildwood saltwater poisoning. I. Hey, what's up with saltwater poisoning from Wildwood, New Jersey? Fuck you. That's my Italian goals pump band. I guess anyway. So we went down to the shore, and my friend, Bobby. And I we for some reason I don't know how to I cannot describe to you how this entered our brain. But like we thought that in order to drink hard liquor. You had to have a chaser. Even though we could see it in the bottle and knew that you could just put it in your body. We were like you cannot drink it without a chaser. I don't I have no clue how we thought that. And we had no chasers. So this is a real thing. What was your choice like Coca Cola or whatever? Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. Like either making mix drinker like I guess probably because we hated the taste of it. And we thought we'd puke everywhere. Most people getting into drinking. We were like seventeen. Yeah. Real thing. I've done in my life. We just looked around at what we could possibly use his chasers. And then we dipped a bagel in vodka. I have dipped a bagel in vodka and eating. Woody allen. Boys of summer. This is their man like. Not to bring it completely down. But I think I went to school with like fucking, rapists or some shit like they would they would make like a VAT of fruit like soaked in like vodka and like ever clear, they would just like give that to people parties like this is way too much alcohol. Just like kind of like the everyone's going to give Faulk. Oh, yeah. It was just like, okay. Like, this seems like crazy, dude. I mean, you absolutely did go to school. To just be handing out slices of watermelon. That are like twelve shots, you know, infused or whatever like eat this. I mean there was like, dude. I yeah. That was the thing dudes like that what they would do is. They would be like we're going to get these girls drunk. Those are trying to do. I always hated those mother fuckers. It's weird because when I moved into that apartment like I thought they were college students, and then it turned out they were all just a part of the snowboarding club of the college. But they didn't go to college. They didn't go to college there. All nice. But I was like it just on the Canadian curling team. Exactly like that. Yeah. Yeah. It just slowly kind of like overtime. I was like, oh, so you have a party every weekend like the snowboarding club. It just made sense at the time. Okay. Well, I also hate this. So I'm just gonna leave, you know. Oh, you moved in with these guys. I moved in with them. How is this? Not a show you've written about the snow boarding club. That you lived with a white male. I mean. Well, well, now, I know why that show because you are completely insecure about it. Say that movie out cold was basically that movie that show remember that dot gov Acas movie that was like a snowboarding movie yet. But in due Hampton in your no, listen, check it out in your version, you kill them. Yeah. Fucking kill those assholes. Do fuck the patriarchy. That's the name of the show. Patriot in episode one you kill them. And then every episode is just you high fiving liberals. I'm not in it for the likes me. Neither man. I don't care. We get into this. The suicide. Brought this week day. They're they're actually going to talk about a few. So we are going to talk about John Thomas Doyle who jumped off the Golden Gate Bridge. And so really this is a Golden Gate Bridge episode. But also I wanna talk specifically about what happened to him as well. So it's kind of two things awesome. Yeah. Well, that sounds good Yemen. Let's take a quick break after these advertisers. We support. All right. Character is called blind Seinfeld. I already love it. Now, he already needs. The braille signs. So that's why. He's braille sign. But basically, it's Seinfeld just he doesn't he's been blind since birth. Okay. So what the hell? Television. Television. Yeah. Someone has the lead them onstage and off. Okay now. Okay. Okay. Blind carlin. All right. Okay. This is get on the plane. I don't know where the fuck him. Blonde. Hell, yeah. Honestly, I'm great. Okay. More. I'll try blind. Here we go Hillary go demetri Martin. Holy shit who've I will also accept blind. Stephen, right. Okay. Okay. Very fair. Very. To fair. Blind to meet you Martin. Take a look at this. What is this? What? What am I drawn? Is it good? Is it funny? And it's like him attempting to do a graph just like fucking. Okay. So this is number of stupid farts with women's tears. So you love his comedy. He's great every standup gets a little boring when you really like become it down. Breakdown. You really think? Like, if you ever are trying to create some sort of distinctive voice, then that's you going. Okay. So I think this is worthy of attention different enough, and therefore is worthy of scrutiny. Oh, absolutely. Everyone will tear you to. Well. We were. Yeah. I mean, one of my favorite things about literally this show that we do is. We should all over things. We love the things that you love or the things, you know, the most into so, you know, all the things to make fun of about it. Yeah. Yeah. That's true. I know all of your fucking ins announced day. Try blind. Stephen, right. We blind Stephen, right? Okay. Here we go. Opponent. Was it looked like? I don't know what it looks like. Oh, yeah. You know, what I always think this is a total side conversation. But I just think as fun. I was thinking of like, weddings. I've been to visit Bragar I've been to. I've been to a couple of friends wit. I was thinking what is the most overused song as a cliche? You know, like that whatever moment in the ceremony where they're like, everyone pay attention. I think it's either the book of love by the magnetic fields. Okay. Or they'll do the beach beach, boys. God only knows. Yeah. The two songs every wedding. I've been to has had multiple times played. That's really funny because if you listen to God only knows it's like a super fucked up song. Yeah. Doesn't isn't God only knows the one where he's like he's like look. I'm gonna look up lyrics to God only knows right now. Because one of the songs on pet sounds. It's either that one or the first track. Wouldn't it be nice? You know what? My biggest problem with them is pet sounds no pets ounce. Like I wanted to have like, you know, here's a baby calf. And here's like a little kitten in a barn. You know? And none of that. Instead, they just give me timeless classic music. Here. The lyrics of of God only knows yet. Okay. The thing. I really love about God only knows aside from how beautiful the song is is that it's one of the it's like one of the only songs pop songs about love made by a like early twenties. Man that does not put all the onus on the woman. Like, it's really cool. He says like he's basically saying, I really I love you, and you can do whatever you want. But just so, you know, I'm really fucked up. How much I love you. Pre evanescence was singing if you if you should ever leave me, though, life would still go on believe me the world could show nothing to me. So what good would living do me? God only knows what I'd be with. Yup. Me. That's you know, I don't know. He definitely like had mental collapse. So it is. I mean, like, it's it's there one hundred percent there and all of his work. It's just such an extreme way of saying that or it's like Br. When I really didn't write that song when I wanna feel about Brian Wilson. I just listen to bare naked ladies there song about nine embed like Brian. Whoa. Slow because feel because I'm not emotionally ready for the beach, boys. Ladies. With the bare naked ladies. You know for every beat voice on. I've been so many weddings, where the book of love by magnetic. I don't know that song. Oh, you don't. Okay. Yeah. It's just it's become a baby. I know it it's become a little like they ended the series finale of scrubs with it. Right. Okay. Remember when Seinfeld closed out one of their like special like a clip show with green day's good riddance. Literally played. Must've been it must've been the last clip show. They did share. Clip show. And then they did like a two part finale. Right. I love songs that are just like. Yeah. I remember finale of Seinfeld airedale lived in New York and the New York Post the front cover was a picture of Jerry, and it said Seinfeld ending. And then there was one of those like strips across the left corner and said America bombs Iraq. Blindside? What's? What? Brown. What's brown? Blinds doesn't even see color. Non PC, exactly, dude. Let's get into it into this. Okay. So first of all I just want to talk about John Thomas Doyle who. And then we get sick way into talking about the Golden Gate Bridge at large. Personally, because there's really not much to be found about John Thomas. Doyle, he on November nineteen fifty four. He was forty nine years old. He jumped off the Golden Gate Bridge and. And they found a note in his pocket that said quote, the entire note. It said absolutely no reason except I have a toothache. Yeah. I think someone had sent this to us four one fucking blows my mind. Yeah, dude. Yeah. So they didn't dude. How bad was that too? Here's the thing. Apparently the simplest way of saying. It is apparently his toothache was really bad. Yeah. So they did an autopsy and also just guessing from the fact that he said that and they have the fact that they have no reason to believe otherwise they think he had. Right. Jemele neuralgia which is also referred to as suicide disease, try juvenile neuralgia. Is like it's a problem with the TriGem nerve, which is like as far as I could tell one of the spinal nerves. It's in the brain. Okay near the nasal cavity. Okay. And when you have tried Jamil neuralgia randomly for seemingly no reason, some part of your face hurts so much that it just ruins everything. It's like a migraine times of million. And there are there are like a bunch of studies that say that this is by far the most painful thing, you can feel it is some people say there are other things that are more painful because obviously like testing pain is subjective. With. By like a girl. Fucking hot. Victoria's secret. God damn pets sucks. It sucks. It makes me think of Jake when Jake had actually with his leg, our friend. It seems like what he had is a similar thing. There's another thing that is also referred to as suicide disease, which is called I fucked forget, it's like CPR nerve damage. Nerve pain. You would rather be dead than keep going. Totally. I couldn't find any figures on how many people have committed suicide who have it. But like it's right now, apparently, it's very very uncommon. Not a lot of people have it somewhere between ten and fifteen thousand people have it. And but there are like online forums. And foundations for researching why it happens because there's no exact they haven't found exactly why it's caused and also the other fucked up thing is that if you have it you can go years without it happening. And then it just happens out of nowhere. And they can't hammer down what the triggers are the trigger could literally be it's generally like your it's your teeth. It's like one side seems to be focused on one side of your face and feels like it's coming from your teeth or your cheek, but it's like this extreme excruciating. Pain like affects your whole brain. What does that mess? Board like. Actually, like if you're interested more in this. I would recommend going back and listening to our episode. We had Jake Weisman on because he talks about that. Also. Sorry pulled over because I was really really know. It's true. Like the message board. It's really because I think that is what it is this sucks, right? We come to this a lot of times where this is. Honestly, the one time where I'm like, dude, if you are in seriously like degenerative, like nerve pain that is like killing you. I completely understand. Well, I don't know man. I feel like I kind of always understand I will say. I'm not trying to be a top credit. And the the reason I say it that way is like, yeah. I'm with you like. Degenerative pain is the instance in which you say like, you wouldn't argue with someone it's like, but in this case, I actually would because they do there is money being spent on this, and there's no cure. But there are things you can do. Now, there are like remedies ease it, and there are people to talk to about it yet, Gloria Steinem apparently had this and HR the lead singer of bad brains has it and he just he just did a gofundme me to raise sixteen thousand dollars for to get the surgery to lessen it, and he apparently got that surgery. And he says he feels great now brain. Yeah. Average, we know where his bed from. From. We've now made bad brains average brains, man, what if back brains just sucks start recording music, and it's like. Now, that's true. That's right. They've been making some garbage for awhile. But it is hard to listen to. I like it man early bad brains is pretty quickly became just like bed reggae. And that's, but I don't know man that that song sailon come on, man. I record your from DC. So maybe you know, better than me. I love the government. Okay. Whatever president. Oh, yeah. Good point. Yeah. Honestly, like if I could make a little side note about DC culture here. It's like it's it is pretty funny that like growing up in DC or starting comedy, especially in DC, everyone who works. There doesn't give a shit about politics. Right. It's like Hollywood work in politics. They don't give a shit. They're just trying to make it. They're like someone would be like a friend of mine was like videography for for the White House. So like when Bush was in office. I would I would always be like with it. Like, you hate this guy. Like you had to go work firm record him. Yeah. Yeah. It doesn't really matter. When Obama was office. It was like a little bit better. But he was like yet still the same job like the camera and like after like work with the same unit. I worked with like I did a show with this, dude. Who Diam so annoyed that his name is escaping me? Because he was so fucking cool. He was a marine for a long time. Tony hawk. Oh, yeah. Tony hawk. That's true. Yeah. It was Rodney Mullen and. He he was a marine on Marine One. And so he was like Marine One is the president's helicopter. Yeah. And so he was like on a daily basis. I would stand outside this fucking helicopter and salute the president, and I did it for Obama. And I did it for Trump. Yeah. I don't think he was in long enough for to do it for Bush to maybe he was, but he was like usually. Yeah. It was really interesting because it was the same for everybody that came in and out of that helicopter. They're all very respectful. Some of them were a little more interested in saluting us. Because it's not just the president's the first lady, it's the vice president all these people. So I'm like talk to us more than others, but everyone's very respectful in knows we're in the marines. And they like that except Trump is a fucking piece of shit. And I was like why can't put my finger on it, man. But he's just a fucking. Actually, I come to think of it. I don't even think he was on Marine One with Trump. Maybe he was saying that his buddies telling that. Okay. I mean, or maybe that Donald Trump there's really no way of knowing actor this whole story. I'm fake news. Quite possibly did. Either way down Trump is clearly garbage. So it doesn't matter. Yeah. It's really. Yeah. I don't know. So I just sorta I guess I sort of disagree with like like I understand wanting to die just from pain like Steve was talking about. But like, I think that's only I don't know. I don't I don't support it unless it's gone on long enough for you to know that there's no recourse, truly. Yeah. And I mean like, you know, that's up to the individual. But yeah, exactly. And that's your own personal like way you would. But please like all of the possible remedies and therapies, you could get friends of mine who like become like paraplegic. And it's just like sure it. It's like, it's awful. Right. So right understand like it's almost like a world that I can't understand. I'm with you, man. But also, I don't want people who are listening who don't have one of those problems. But are so down in a pit that they might be able to align themselves with that to be given out by us because we won't that's not something I will ever do. That's why I'm saying like. You you have to seek out is a very rare case in which I would be like, yeah, I get it. You know what I mean? You know what I mean? And in this case like, yeah. This level of pain. Like fuck. I mean, Jake, but here's that's a perfect example this level of nerve pain. Jake couldn't sleep for a calendar year. He was in so much pain. And it was he was like he couldn't do anything. You couldn't do anything. And he was he was losing his mind. He was felt like someone was constantly digging a fucking spoon into his spine or his leg. And then he got some surgeries, and he doesn't have his pain anymore, and he has a fucking TV show. You know what I mean? And so on Seinfeld. Which was his dream is the only reason I say that as like a. Yeah. True. So yeah, it's fucked up dude at a call it the suicide disease for fucking reason. Yeah. Crazy. Also, I gotta give it up to this guy for being funny, man. Absolutely, no reason except I have a toothache fucking what that is a nihilist dick fuck that is some good comedy. Yeah. I respect it. Good joke. Yeah. It's a joke. You wrote a joke, and he was like. I'm out. Matter of fact, the first ever person to jump off the Golden Gate Bridge. At least the first recorded case of someone purposely, dying jumping out of the Golden Gate Bridge. His name was Harold B water. He happened in August of nineteen thirty seven. He was forty seven years old. He was a World War One veteran. Who had gotten work in San Francisco. He took a bus to the bridge. He was walking down the bridge while he was walking. He's he's sparked up a conversation with a college. Professor he walked by. Okay. They were talking for awhile Jordan Peterson. You're walking right now on a bridge. But what you don't understand is that we are. The guy is just like hate you. Yeah. So this guy talking this college professor he liked gets to this part of the bridge like a girder that he's going to he looks at the college professor, and he says, well, this is where I get off. The bridge people who kill themselves love to tell a fucking joke. Man. It's crazy. Yeah. Apparently, this college professor like reached as the guy was leaping in grabbed his belt and like held him back for a minute. And was like don't do it. Don't do it in the guy wriggled free and fucking shit. Yeah. Just hired like a fortune cookie. Like secret up your ass if you're going to play jokes. Yeah. A person them want. Get like crazy about. Also. Yeah, man that calls professor is like rolling over in his head. Like, I say anything. Want a Snickers? And you'd like just eaten a Snickers hole with the packaging and. Open your stomach's like. Dying to reach in and get the snappers. Thank you're going to fuck with people. Make their entire lives. Awful shitty. That's a really good point. I'm not saying do that the thought I asked brutal like we were talking about what was the name of the kid who killed himself an open mic in Oregon guy. Yeah. I was year ago that we recorded Kip rusty wall, Kip rusty Walker. Yeah. Yeah. Are you doing? Suicides that we're like public in a way where it was kind of like you're trying to show the public. Fuck with them. Right. Exactly. Doing it more. So than like. Art for you. You're trying to prove something. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. Man sounds awful with this guy. There's another one. This one is weird because I don't. I don't know anything else about it. But in nineteen seventy-one amend named David Cleveland jumped off the Golden Gate Bridge, and they found thirty six dollars in his mouth. Really? Yeah. Well, I'd say he's probably a crazy person. Yeah. Maybe the C money. Poseidon? No this money. At that point eight might have just been in a mental. Sure state that is right. Not recognizable. I mean, that's pretty interesting. What do you think that would be about? Yeah. I don't know. I mean, there is the chance that it wasn't a suicide and it was like a, mafia. Okay. Type bookie out this exactly though, Shen thirty six dollars. Yeah. That's it. Yeah. The you owe me thirty six dollars. So you're swimming with the fishes. And that's the thing. That's a weird number. May way. On thirty six three six six six six. Okay. The devil. Did it? Oh my God. Or three six mafia. Did it maybe he was in three six month yet is that out three six via started. Oh, man. Maybe drake. Did it? Like, you know, there's oddly odd history of putting like money on your person is. Yeah. Like, put it on your eyes. You say maybe this guy lost his mind and agrees across thirty six dollars. Exactly he came. He found a money lake. Final solution of what it would be came to thirty six dollars. Exactly. To bacon eaters. Yeah. Like an album. Wait how much is it bacon? Inter like, four bucks. Do you get the combo deal? Would he get the combo? How much is it? Big nater. No combo with the combo. No combo. Rounding up no combo. No combo four to five bucks. Okay. So to bacon eighters roundup, say ten bucks. Okay. Okay. Then. Yes. Sure. It also gets you. Uh-huh. Yeah. You said an album, I think that's good. What album, you know, like a friend rabbit frightened rabbit album. Well, yeah, I guess that's appropriate. Said so we could replace his album with a different album. No, we can do just want to say since he came up that song. Older brother is pretty good Johnson. Really good song is called pepper. I think anyway, great band. So let's say a frightened rabbit CD is eighteen bucks. Okay. Then we're up at twenty eight eight bucks to bake inter rabbit album. Okay. You could get like. Bike seat. Maybe by classes to come up with suggestions, dude, sadly, improv classes, more than eight dollars. Not fair really cost us suggestion. Due to an ember. But I'm paying in giving these instructors something to do. I know and also a new bike eight bucks. Those are pretty expensive. I love that you brought up the Golden Gate Bridge. Yeah. Topic? I mean like we've been kind of like dancing around for a little bit. It's it's kind of like one of the most like icon a graphic like symbols of. Yeah. I know. I wish you'd go through. I do have like I wanna go through another few other specific cases. But I yeah, it's it is the second. Most popular suicide spot in the world, number-one Coachella. Number one is the Nanjing Yangtze river bridge in China. Yeah. Number one. Yeah. China and the reason that they are. Higher than the reason that they are higher than the Golden Gate is that China sucks. Population thing. Nope. Be right once I'll. Also, number three, number three, most popular Susie. True, everyone who comes in. There is dead. Can you guess number three spot in the world? Seattle suicide forest in Japan. Yeah. Yeah. Which is crazy to me that the Golden Gate Bridge is more than a suicide forest because they at least the suicide forest looks like that and the Golden Gate Bridge is like a modern marvel. It's like beautiful and huge and people drive down with their head out the sunroof like it's changing their life. When the suicide for is like looks like suicide fields. Remember that opening a full house where they just drove off the bridge. Isn't that the family matters? Yeah. What happened to predict visit? This guy. Dave. It's a rare condition is that family matters. Yeah. Yeah. Good news in the newspaper. Well. Sea of dreams. So you head absent t- parents. Yeah. Dad was a weekend just was home all the time. Really really absent most of the time, absolutely. I. All agree to all of us, a big family matters fan metoo. Well, it's a rare condition that someone isn't. Full house was obnoxious. I didn't like it. I liked it. It was hard. And then I found family matters. And I was like, oh, this is funny. That is funny on this so much more goofy. There's like weird things whereas clone machine and like, here's goofy juice family. Sorry. Full house was more. Like, Michelle, totally. Dog's food bowl on your head. And she's like, no. And it's on her head and everyone's like visited genius. This is unbelievable springing families to get the Golden Gate Bridge up until now over seventeen hundred people have jumped to their death. As of two thousand five only twenty six people had jumped off the bridge and not died. Five percent of the people who jump off the bridge in die. Don't die from the impact. Ninety five percent of people die from the impact. Five percent of the people don't die when they hit the water and die of hypothermia or drown. Fucked up way to go also though there is like a huge network of countermeasures for suicide around it at this point and have been for a while. In two thousand thirteen one hundred eighteen people were talked down from committing suicide on the Golden Gate Bridge. There are like emergency personnel. Police that are assigned to walk it who just walk. It all the time literally looking for people that seem like they're going to kill themselves. Yeah. You know? It's crazy is like no matter how I'm feeling though. If I just look at that bridge. I wanna kill myself. Let's beautiful. It's too. It's like I'll never be that beautiful or hard. It can be with bridge. I'll never be as hard as average. Exactly. Imagine. If your dick Hart is the Golden Gate Bridge. You feel like if you're in the Souss Ota China's? Taking China Chinese Disneyland and Andre the rides one of those like suicide places. Did she should kill myself? Wait, what if you're in like the suicide forest or on the Golden Gate Bridge right here wherever that place in China a part of us like well, I should kill myself. That's that's crazy lake. Blizzard. If you go to Dairy Queen. Goes Golden Gate Bridge in you, don't get a lizard with the fuck is wrong with you. Totally. That's so fucking funny. Yeah. For the burgers, buck, you you're an idiot. You stupid go there. And you don't do the thing. Right. If you go to Venice, and you don't get in a gondola, totally also let's be very clear about this. Don't do the thing at Golden Gate Bridge is bad. I'm more trying to poke holes in why people would do this just based on going to the Golden Gate Bridge. 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. Do you think that you think that some of the people who jumped off think they were trying to fulfill a destiny of being there? Yeah. I mean, if that's a way that they can kind of like Campari justify and get smaller and their brains. Go to the bridge. Kill myself swell. Just go if I somehow can manage to bring myself to the bridge, I'll kill myself rather than the full thing of like, you know, how is my entire network of people going to feel after this. 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 it's like, it's massive. It's really I literally stick my head out the sunroof every time, I do I love it so much cocker spaniel small. Fucking idiot. Oh shit. News carers who. Tomorrow on latchkey kids. Honestly that show really taught me that if your mom just dies fucking life is sweet is that full houses. Live with your own goals. Oh, mom's dude. Yeah. Dude. Because everybody has a cool uncle and a phony uncle and neither of them are problematic. Once just wrote us on that's like Michelle smiling. Like he just wrote a song about smiling and like do just on with your life. Relax your title in life. Totally who you are. Who you are. Also, I have an issue with the when the show came back sequel show fuller house. I was not the direction I would've taken it in personally, I would have made empty house. And it would have just been about other house burned down, and they're all debt I full as Taus. Okay. Yeah. This show starring muni. Short more Neak. Oh, right. That's right. 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. That's fucking insane. Man. There's also because a lot of people are like, you know, aware of this. This is like I texted Hampton before recorded. 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 for people. And here's the most amazing group. This is fucking crazy. There's a group of people that are called the Cowboys of the sky that I think are called that by other people. I don't think they pick that name mean angels. Yeah. The cowboys. Not in Moscow. 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. 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 PEO. Be 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. 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. When he kills him. So no, it's in Gatlinburg, Tennessee. Well, so one in a while. I wonder okay. Gatlinburg tennessee. Yeah. Yeah. You all know about exactly the most famous of the space Neal's. 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. 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. They only had one store in San Francisco, and you could get stuff mail order, and it was like fairy expensive children's clothes and children's toys and shit like that. And he got all this. Thank you. I'm fine. I didn't wanna say it. I'll tell you what your child's. You're ruining my mind right now. Wait. Yeah. Destiny's Child is. Damned damned damned. That's my song beyond saying. Pretty good song. Kid rock's number one. Aw. Yeah. I remember I kind of research this guy because I thought we might do as we could do episode at some really is with with his story. Totally because he he definitely his that weird shit that I like about suicide, which is always just like this person who impacted history crazy way. Can you believe that kill themselves? Totally. But like YoM when I researched him and his thing like he really just was like in such an over extended business. Yeah. You know at the time like he just was under such like financial like pressures. Yeah, we'll mile my child's destiny went bankrupt. And apparently the reason they went bankrupt. Is that people were like, this is the most elitist bullshit we've ever seen? He was just critically panned across the board. And also. Probably no one could afford it. I don't know if someone's to shop at this store their their body needs to be more booty leashes. Or they need to be a survivor. It is weird free to start Victoria secret. And then a kid's store that's just both of them. Yeah. Totally. But I think he really understood like a market void. I think maybe Victoria's Secret is that she ate all the yogurt. Kid joke. So. Sorry. Okay. Right. Are trying to make Joe I'm coming. Oh my God. No not with this mass in my ball sack. Thank you for listening to the whisper cast. This is the first ASM our podcast people who are weak Cox. That is the last time day. Fucks? That's the last time. I leave out snacks piece shit. It's good that make you feel good. Yeah. Dave. You've ever been to Victoria, Z GRA. Yeah. And they're totally got so. That's the first time. I got Boehner I've found my boner at Victoria's Secret. Dude. This was fun. This is really fun guys. I don't have any answers for you with this episode with life. I mean when it comes to Victoria secret, I would say either go there don't. We can't deals. The Golden Gate Bridge. I respect it as an artistic creation, but I'm also conflicted. That people have put such pressure on it. Yeah. Making it this mental health like icon. Yeah. It's it's it's sad. I think that it's hard to have. I don't know. I hope that speaking about it. And like talking about some of the people that jumped off that bridge. Just like everyone else that we talk about. We'll like remind you that you're not alone. Yeah. And it's a fun like. If you've ever considered going there for this reason that you don't because. Yeah. It can't be that. That's the thing. Seventeen hundred people man, if it's that many people. The like. That means seventeen hundred people were like, I'm garbage and need to go. And I don't wish that feeling on anyone can see that happening anywhere anytime. But I think a destination suicide is like, whoa. Let's stop. Let's go five steps backwards began like you're on a different level. You wanna die in a totally prove something. Yeah. You want to like reach you wanna like see God, or whatever the fuck you're trying to do the bridge too. You know what I mean? Fulfil some sort of destiny thing happening, and she's like, yeah. You like read all the karaoke or whatever. Why be him? Yeah. I've been there like growing up where I would read about like an author suicide or something like that. Or you think Kurt Cobain? Yeah. Dad honor the process. Yeah. It's it's misguided thinking to say, the least absolutely so. Episode man, I really to about the Golden Gate Bridge. Yeah. Yeah. Make a wish every time you drive over the Golden Gate you make one God Dan wish and wish it out your sun roof. Yes, seriously. Thank you for listening. Stay safe, please. And glad you're alive we because of just like last month because some work and scheduling shit. We don't have a patriot episode coming out this week. I'm sorry. But we still will have to bonus buddies, which that's patriot to patron episodes coming out this month. It'll just be next week. And then the week after that so to rose. Any rose guys catch up so?

Actually, we really would prefer if you needed any sort of help that you would reach out to some sort of professional good help you because we are poorly equipped to do such we recommend that you would call one eight hundred two seven three eight two five five that's one eight hundred two seven three talk is the national suicide prevention lifeline, honestly, do incredible work that they will talk to you. And they will hear you want you to stay with us. So thank you.

We're GONNA cover this weekend one Saturday. One Sunday are from Golden Gate fields and one of the leading trainers out at Golden Gate fields is John and Jonathan. Wong is nice enough to join us now. Jonathan it's Anthony. And Bobby here on the weekend stakes preview presented by Nyerere bets. Thanks for joining us this evening. Thank you for having me. I appreciate it so we don't cover too much Golden Gate. He obviously through the pandemic and you guys are open. A little earlier stayed open. A little longer opened up a little earlier than most tracks Tell us a little bit about yourself. How you got started in your career and what What it's like Golden Gate Right now. Right now everything. Golden Gate going really good. I mean I started going to very strict when I working at the when I was sixteen I worked for John Martin for a while and ended up going on my own and it doesn't fourteen and Fortunately we've been doing really well. We've had a lot of and got a great group of owners guys at the barn. Make my life a lot easier. You'd have worked with great people. You know yeah you guys have been on a really good run up at Golden Gate right now and then of course on Monday That good fortune you'd want some racist attend neater as well but the first grade one of your of your career with keeper of the SARS. Yeah keep her the star. She's she's amazing. I mean first grade to first grade one I mean. I can't think Tommy found thoroughbreds enough for the opportunity yet. They've given me not only with her so several of their other works. I mean it's really Nice Stopper get any such nice to brand horses. I mean fortunately been able to take advantage of. We had a pretty good run reasoning for that unleashed a good deal to your of first time starters as well as of late yeah. Last week we had a four lane for them. I mean like I said again. I can't take them enough opportunities giving you they give me several nights four and then working with before that make it work with second day. How different is it getting sources ready again? You know you. You have the big string up at golden gate fields and all weather surface What are some of the bigger differences having to get the horses prepared and ready to run on that surface as opposed to the ones run on the traditional dirk down at the Great Race Place To be honest with you I mean. I haven't really run into much differences personally reversal experience. I mean maybe Jonathan Fraction them a little bit more and more show he'd rather than at Golden Gate where he wanted to settle and finish more. But I mean. There's a lot of the malaria between both I feel so not too not too Not Too many things that you need to do differently. A lot of people feel that there are but you don't feel that there is no not at all I personally don't and of course it's easy would keep her of the star. She's a she's new turf monster. That was really some effort on on Monday. Were you able to make the trip down you at Santa Know? I was not offended. Landed of watching the race at the family just extraordinary times right now just unbelievable and things just watching it that we were able to run. You know people talk to talk about that a little bit a little. Bit Johnson. You how many do you have in training? Now we have seventy. What's that like when you you know? You have to keep all of those horses because you're really the first trainer we've had on the air who did not have horses anywhere other than California and you know it was a complete shut down for a while. What goes through your mind when tracks are closed now not only keeping those horses happy from business point of view. I? I'm sure you're worried about when these tracks were gonNA open backup. Yeah definitely I mean like I said I think in a way. It helps a lot of our horses. I mean a lot of first-time starters that we're able to win with. We are able to get a couple more work for a couple of couple of more gate worse than to get him more. So than the and I think Zammit Health and health. Freshmen her up. A lot of the hearts I think needed a little bit of a break from me. We use vantage. I mean else. They've done you know what I mean. Just made the best situation pretty much and we were very fortunate that the management here at Golden temples open for as long as we've been running then just getting back up and running just like I mean. We're very fortunate that you're working down for long as a lot of other tracks John. This is Bobby Newman talking a little bit more about keeper of the stars. Who of course won the grade? One gamely this past Monday at Santa Anita. She's been a little bit overlooked by the public. It seems I believe that. She is a course record holder at golden gate for a mile and a sixteenth when she went one forty and into back last summer. But since you've had her she had already won three races including two graded stakes on the grass going a mile at Santa Anita the grade three autumn miss and the grade tube one AVESTA. Despite those two wins she was still set off a pretty big price this past Monday. Are you surprised that she's not getting a little bit more credit than maybe she deserves personally? Yeah I mean because if you go back if you actually watch replays the racist del Mar the first time we ran in my grade once she got in a lot of trouble at the three eight four and she's still got be less than two lanes around fourth grade one and then the last time we a day when del Mar she was on the lead doing the whole way and she did all the running and she ran forth again two lanes. I mean I personally feel with a better trip. She should have won or been right there in both of those races down del. Mar. She's just the type of Philly that you can't get in trouble. Seemed like able now. He gets into relaxing outside. And he just keeps her in the clear much rather lose a little bit of ground with her but keeper in the clear beginners. Sop invited having to stop and go because she's not the type of silly that can do that because she's such a big loss philly so you you've now got two wins in a grow in graded stakes. Santa Anita of course the grade. One gamely being your first grade one stakes victory. What's next on the agenda? For Keeper of the stars is is there something in southern California to send back up north or maybe across country I literally got off the phone with Tom and Debbie Solar Saami town and we were just talking about waiting for the sake schedule to come out for del Mar. Which I believe is GonNa come out today if I'm not mistaken and seeing what they have over there for her and if not we're going to have to look into other options about shipping across country somewhere. Yeah keep it a star. She gave you something you'll You'll never forget your first greed. One win so Sunday. We will get right back. It's kind of a quiet weekend for John. Wong I took a look through the entries. Just a just in a couple of races on On Sunday we don't have that many running this. We have a quiet weekend. We're a bunch last week and the week before tonight. Fifty million easy relax hopefully another weekend yeah And trying to keep that success go on with Tommy town thoroughbred. You mentioned them a couple of times on the program One of two you have in the Sunday feature at Golden Gate Fields the California oak seventy five thousand mile and a sixteenth on this deck surface dynasty of her own. She is a stakes winner on the dirt. She wanted someone park Back in January she. She's already one around two turns at Golden Gate engaged wire fashion last time out. She's three for four overall in her career. Talk a little about dynasty of her own dynasty. That's assuming that we've always had a lot of course She's trained really well before her first race and she ran did he came back and we couldn't get a raise for her to fill in and eat or golden gate so we ended up taking a shot down in the border plex that send them park and she wants you really good and then we searched her out and she got the bill and she just got tired but then she came back and won her next race here. Goldberg. She's training. They went into the day. I think she's very very. I don't think he's a need the league type. I think she can sit off the pace. A OF HORSES WANNA go. She can sit and relax Actually I mean the mile. Maybe a little far for the mile off but again. She's a really nice. Oh she's trained really well. I'm expecting to run again right right into her. Inside as your other runner Ray wa. Who finished second ninety of our on that Allowance Optional claimer? Last time out Boy Raila. She's a she's as consistent as they come. Unfortunately that consistency right now is a tough tough case of second. Itis the worst disease you can have at the racetrack. If you're thoroughbred ray what she's she's stretched out just been ultra consistent. I mean she tries every time she lays her body down. Every time I give you one hundred percent I mean. He's another one if he gets good trip. I mean she could be right there well. She always tries to and really good going to save. I think she's got a good shot. It's not an easy right by any means but both of our families are going to have to run their games. Get there I mean. And if they do go should be. They both a chance. Here you see Paddy Gallagher Shipping End Fashion royalty from down at offering. Eat on this earth. She ran third behind. Molly Oh mcevoy and ray were both in here. Simon Callaghan shipping up Even that white haired Guy Baffert sending in one the Golden Gate debutante in her final start as a two year old should makes her first start of the season. I guess it's only fair. Play right you go down there and take their money on Monday. They come up and trying to take your money on Sunday. Yeah so if we can defend our home court advantage John. Thanks for some time tonight. Great job will. I'm sure we'll be hearing a lot from you six years into your career. You're doing a fantastic job out in California. Congratulations again on keeper of the stars. Best of luck with Ray Wa and Dynasty of her own this Sunday in the California oaks. Thank you really appreciate it? Jonathan Wong one of the leading trainers up in northern California at Golden Gate Fields China. Starting to make his presence felt South at Santa Anita as well. Bobby Newman yet Jonathan Wong actually. His career began with one starter. In twenty fourteen so for all intents and purposes he started in two Thousand Fifteen. The lowest win percentage.

Not ki-moon but at Churchill downs tomorrow afternoon. Welcome back to the weekend. Stakes preview presented by naira bets here on H. R. R. N. Churchill. Downs has a couple a steaks racist tomorrow. Bobby. I believe you have an opinion as well and another racism meeting race. Right after this first stakes race will cover. Maybe you can give the folks a cold double both of the racist parts of the pick five as well as juleps at the end of the segment at the end of the car tomorrow.

Finish second you'll get your twenty bucks back So head over to Nairobi. It's dot com for more details. Because I can be a knucklehead. Sometimes the winning colors a great three six furlongs on the main track. I'll tell you what it's a great three but we have great to winner. Eight of the bells break even who seven for nine in Korea? We have a great to winner the number four bells the one one. The Raven run at keeneland against straight three year olds last fall. We have grade one winner spice perfection. She won the two big races Akeem for the phillies in their sprinting last year. The Madison the grade one in the spring as well as the TC in the fall and we have grade one winner me mischief. She's a great one winner. Right over this. Churchill downs core. She won the Humana distaff last year. Over Marley's freedom a grade three in name only this could very well be great one. Bobby it really looks like a lot of the candidates you'd see at the end of the year in the Breeders Cup in Philly and Mayor Sprint and spice perfection. Making HER FIRST START FOR NEW CONNECTION. Sia for most of her recent career has been trained by Pete Miller has been sold privately since her last starchy now goes for training mark casting and I believe new owner as well in Harare Ashida. So we'll see you what changes if any We get from spice perfection in the winning colors by the way. Is it just me or does it seem strange that the winning colors is a six furlong race? I it seems like it should be a to turn race for the fillies and Mares. That's just a. That's a lot of weird ones out. There was Liz a couple a couple of turf races horses that never step foot on the turf. There's a couple of strange ones out there. This one's up there though. I agree but that that being said I we both liked MIA and mischief lot in her last race. The carousel over at Oaklawn Park. She had a good setup and it wasn't so much that we loved her is that we didn't like the favourite that day Bella Fina battlefield had a horrible trip in didn't run well. Mischief had a great trip and destroyed the field. I honestly think she's going to get a similar type of trip tomorrow. Churchill downs now. She's going to have to pass break. Even who when she makes the lead is very very tough to beat in fact She's only lost once in her career when she's cleared the field and although there is some other speeding winning colors tomorrow I think break even as clearly the speed of the speed and she's one for one Churchill. I still think NEOM MISCHIEF. Best is better than break evens best and I like the fact that me and mischief is drawn near the outside. She second from the outside for Ricardo. Santana Junior Steve Asmussen. She's riding a three race win streak coming in she loves the main track at Churchill. Downs BEING FIRST OR SECOND. Seven of eight career tries including five wins. And I think she'll be the one stocking break even or maybe The closest tour when they make the swing for home and I like her stretch run a little bit more than break even so I think. Mya just GONNA keep the train rolling. Okay I like break even just getting front. Keep on going. I'll use both of them in the pick five. There's a horse I want to try and getting the exact is here. And it's the number three Francis Causeway print just causeway. There's one eleven times in a career. She is run in sprints. Just three times one was her debut wishy ran sands lasix At one point I think they was considering how to be a TURF. Wars and she in fact has two wins on the turf in her career. Five eleven overall Cheer on that well. First Time out came back on the turf a couple of times one the slop they try to earn the Goldenrod on that speed bias. Track back in two thousand eighteen. But if you look at our other two sprints November at Churchill downs going seven furlongs. You sat off the pace. That wasn't all that fast made a big run and one pretty easily. She came back last time at Gulfstream Park and made up a ton of ground to get the money. She's hanging up there at a big number. You mentioned bobby to break even this some other speed. And she's the kind of horse where I don't think you could focus too much on who you like in here on top to win the race. I think if you're trying to get her in the number you have to be a little bit more creative. So maybe you're taking both break even and me mischief and even a little spice perfection. Who on her day fits right in you know? Everybody would seem that she wanted to go from ongoing a mile here at acqueduct wins going seven phones on the card including that Madison. She's a perfect three for three at six wrong. This thing falls apart. She's GonNa come running a for. The newest member of the hall of fame are so maybe you take the three favorites and Kinda back wheel partial wheel Prince Cosby. Because she's going to be a big number trying to get her in the number. I like break even on top but if I'm playing tries and exact is I want to try and get fringes causeway and the number one of the favorites that goes race number seven. The grade three winning colors. Who Do we like this maiden race in the aether? It's a mile and a sixteenth for the three year olds and up We've seen some of these. A couple in here have run wants. We've got a first time starter. This eight to five favorite in Oshawa Ham for Todd pletcher. He's making his second star with the trainer change since Karen retired complex or has this one now. Would we like him? Yeah well I don't have anything bad to say about the favorite Asha Tom who's also stretching out for the first time and being by tap it out of a ghost sap premier. You'd think that be right up his alley however I think number three. Maomao is going to run a big race tomorrow and his ten to one on the morning line. This is a horse that debuted at Gulfstream Park in a race that it looked like he was going to have to be pretty good to Be There with the likes of Candy Machine And or if say I believe. Is that how it's pronounced and finished fourth beaten eleven but you know what Bill Maher does not win with a ton of his first time starters more often than not they take a big jump forward from their debut to their second start source. Looks like he's been working well at pace in park since that race. Joel Rosario who was aboard for the debut is aboard once again. I don't think this source is going to have to improve that much to have a big say in this in this race. There is some speed with bare alley and Oshii Anik in there for Mao to run at ten to one is way too big a price and definitely horse that I would be using If I'm playing the pick five you know that you don't have to towards my arm for Martin Rosario I'm running to my naira. Can't bet on horses like this. I'm betting source tomorrow as well when you told me about this race myself. It's gotta be what he's thinking about and here all I'm using the pick five and here's three thousand nine. I've I've seen enough of the rest. I'm using Maomao and I'm using your home and that's if somebody else wins. I'm tearing my pick five ticket proverbially. those are the two bill. Mock COMING INTO. Friday was just five. Wins Away from that magic number? Five thousand so We'll see how he did on Friday recording show Friday afternoon. We'll see what happens and how he did on On Friday Churchill downs and I'm not sure if he had anything in go free but beaumont creeping ever so closer to five thousand career wins. We'll see if he gets it with Momo. In that maiden race reached number eight a churchill downs again. Pick five goals from racist seven to eleven in the eleventh race is also the cash back twenty to win on your naira. That's on any horse voice. Run Second you'll get you twenty bucks back and this is the old forest of Mint Julep. Grade Three Mile and a sixteenth on the turf for the Phillies. And mayors. You have the return of Juliet Fox Trot. She's never been off. The board in six tries here in the US. For Training about Brad Cox will be a guest on the equine form presented by FARM PAINT DOT com. Tomorrow Morning Bo recall. She WanNA grade one last year second-grade couple of grade one last year rather great to winnow also trained by Brad Cox. She returns Nee lady name on the Mrs Revere Chad Round over the course again street. Three year olds at Churchill last year. Secret Message Chat also has not in here and mark represented by the Baltimore's to fourteen Mitchell. Road this is a fun renewal of this mint julep. It isn't it certainly. Likes looks to me like the race goes through trainer. Brad Cox's barn. Both number one Juliet Juliet Fox Trot and the to bow recall to me. Look like they're the ones to beat if they fire off their respective layoffs. They're both Been very successful in grade one in grade to competition. Neither one has raced this year. I lean towards Juliet Foxtrot for one simple reason. She's had let a she's had ten works. Us coming back off. The layoff whereas Bo recall is showing five workouts. Coming back off the left. Now maybe Bo recall doesn't need to put in as much training to get her fit and ready to go. But the fact that Juliet Fox Trot has been on the on the track and working seriously for twice as long. I think that's the way I would lean. Five to two is not a great price. I'd use both of them in the pick five. I'd also throw a number fourteen Mitchell road who I don't think is quite as good as either of those Brad Cox runners but she may be the only speed in this field and if they let just kind of doe see doe on the front end for the first six or seven furlongs and all she has to do with sprint to the line she may be good enough to to stick around with these but all things being equal. I think Juliet Foxtrot is the one beat not only is she have ten work showing for her return to the races. They're pretty solid. Mostly HALF MILE DRILL SO. I think she'll be ready to go right. Julia Foxtrot certainly one here. She is Sheer should be a fantastic spot Almost as important as anything else she should work out a heck of a tripling here. I'm going to be spreading. Hopefully it alive to a big spread Mitchell road. I'm wondering if official will Rhode tries to go back to her Big Big speedways and tries to bottom this field. She's got to get around from the high draw. See if she can get in front of me as there's another philly and that has a little bit of speed That maybe keep accompanying company early on And we'll see what Julia Foxtrot does I would imagine. She's GonNa be sitting there. You gotta use bowl recall And I think you gotTa Use. I'll tell you she's been a lot of seconds for I'll tell you one of these days. I feel like she has a race. Inherit a big price to get get the money in one of these and maybe this is the one maybe one of these races where they kind of bunch right. There's not a lot of speed and maybe Maybe they bunch and Joel. Rosario is able to keep it a little closer. I'M GONNA use is not as well and here. It's a wide open race. I'M GONNA make Mitchell row the top pick just hoping she could bomb them out on the front end. We'll see if she can get in front of these sources But again it's a big spread from me race. Number eleven goes as that old forester mint Julep and like I said earlier. Brad Cox one of the guests on the equine form presented by FARM PAINT DOT com.

Down in South America She returns in a money allowance race on Thursday at Churchill Dan so really all of the phillies and mayors that you want to see I think in that division save Bella Fina who's out west and maybe hard not to love who we're GonNa talk about later going long on the dirt at. You're going to see them all this week. You're really GONNA sit from Saturday to Thursday. You're going to see them all big WANNA fan. Bobby I don't know about you. I'm really looking forward to seeing her return. I actually voted for her as the three year. Old Filly last year low. That's pretty strong and I think she will give these older fillies and mares all they can handle if she comes back to what we know she's capable or at least what she was capable of doing in the past boy that that starting with that maiden win at Keeneland I mean she just came out of the boxer. We you always hear about tiger woods saying hello world when he when he won his first tournament. That's kind of like what God did at Keeneland as she just announced her presence with authority and she's obviously very very talented. I hope she comes back as good or better as she was when she left. Yeah be good refund to see her return especially the sprint distance looking forward to the return on Thursday. We got a lot of action. So we'll talk about in California. Let's start with the grade three honeymoon. This is for the three year old fillies on the turf. We've seen them at Gulfstream Park in the last few weeks Last weekend of course down it Churchill downs we saw a really nice effort from sharing who returned from her win in upset. Fashion of the Breeder's cup juvenile fillies turf that we saw a lot of good performances out of there. And I'm a nice division of three year old fillies this year and out in California. They'll go a mile and an eighth in the honeymoon. We get an ICE ICEFIELD here field of nine and I thought the favorites we're going to dominate near three horses. On the morning. Line are sitting under four to one the number nine stellar star made her debut. Fella half link short of making a winning one for John Sadler Fluffy and Pratt rides the number. Five Laura's light has won two of her three on the turf including the grade. Three sweet life sprinting. And then we have of course park core who got the money In two of her three start so got beaten a blue northern that was won by Lars. Light is the one of the three favorites that we have somebody else. Where are we here? Well I'M GONNA try to beat the three favorites and interesting. I'M GONNA use number four crooked volk which I'm just. I think that's how it's pronounced. There's been a lot of debate on how it exactly Brownsboro crooked vote for Jeff mullins and Umberto crisply. She has not won. Since she came over from Europe she want race in Ireland then came over for one of the Breeder's Cup juvenile filly races last year and actually ran Or rather in two thousand nine hundred nine. Ram Pretty well finishing second only beaten a length or rather not a breeder scuppered the in the juvenile fillies turf. She ended up running behind sharing in the Breeders Cup and only beaten four and a half lengths that day. I don't think that this division California is quite as strong yet as what we saw at Churchill and maybe Gulfstream in the last few weeks but doesn't mean they can't improve but the reason. I like crooked book that I think she's going to close in this field and there should be some to close at she. She's going to have to pass Parker and Laura's light and Laura's light we heard in the playback in winning the blue norther and beating crooked that day she went wire-to-wire that afternoon but with Park in the race. And I think Parker is going to be sent out to the lead. It may hurt the chances of Laura's light who's five two on the morning line and at least to me. Looks like she may be a little bit better on the front end than she is coming from off the pace. I don't have anything negative to say about the morning. Line favorite number nine Stella Star. She ran a great race finishing second in her. Us debut in the China doll last time out despite being very very wide around the far turn. But I just think at the price of Volk is one of the ones who should be moving. Well in the stretch and she's probably going to be overlooked. She's eight to one on the morning line. Yeah she'll be a big price Still looking for a first. Us Win. Umberto Reese Foley man is he good. He is good good good and the mylan leaf is going to be. You would think right up crooked vokes alley. She's making up ground and this is something you don't often see bobby. She's has never lost ground in her. Us starts through the lane. She has either gained ground or stayed the same stuff like that impresses me especially with the younger phillies because yes. She's knocking on the door in these races. But there's a consistency there. At least she's gaining ground on these horses You'd almost think that maybe with her running style should be better off out of California and on some of these deeper courses where she actually have a chance to pick some horses up. Maybe the great equalizer that extra furlong tomorrow. If there was a long shot look at here. She is the one. I don't know if you're GONNA get eight to one. But she's the she's the outline. If you will of the favorites Stella Star was good inner debut. I'm not saying she wasn't I know she was wide. Probably needed the race off layoff first time in the US. I don't I don't know. Do I want her closing with crooked? Volk at a third the price I. I don't know if there's much difference between the two phillies to be honest with you You know what do you do? I'm pretty sure we know now that a horse like par core needs the lead. Whereas we've seen Laura's lightning again it was a sprint in the suite life but we've seen come from off the pace with that. Said I think Mike Smith just WANNA par on the front end and try and take them as fast as he can as he can. She is going to be the biggest price of the three favorites. I believe I think Stella solving the favorite Laura's lighten in our core or crooked vote by the way has beaten Parker Ready. But I'm going to make a top pick hope and Mike Smith just out. Fox's the rest of these guys and gals and puts her on the lead in the grade. Three honeymoon she's my top pick but again when beach if any of those four that we mentioned. Get the money on Saturday up at Golden Gate. Camilla Urso is five phones on their turf course at Golden Gate fields so we go from a mile and an eighth for the three year. Old fillies to sprinting for the older fillies and Mares is a bunch entered in his fourteen entered only ten will run which one of these fourteen young ladies you land on well. I tried to find somebody to close because I thought there was enough pace in here that it it could favor somebody from off the pace and I ended up with number seven storming lady for Alfredo Marquez and can't storm. Oh who's often just kind of a slowest start since right? He's really shifted tack to a full-time Gig in northern California storming lady however has been mainly a southern California Lady and she's been running pretty well in higher level allowance type races now. She is going to Golden Gate. I think she's she's ever raced on the turf at Golden Gate. But I don't think that this stake races much tougher than the allowance. Races storming lady was racing in southern California I know that she's a in good form right now. She's one to over last three starts. In fact two or three starts this year. That bigger question mark may be the distance. It's only five furlong. She may prefer if it was five. And a half. Maybe even six six and a half furlongs But that's why you pay can't disarm Oh to take the call and I think storming lady with a clean trip will be the one who's a motoring down the lane and four to one seems like a decent price? Fantasy heat is where I landed. She ships up from Southern California first office of Timber Layoffs. Oh we haven't seen this young lady for just about eight months more gladden. Frank Alvarado local Writer Frank Alvarado. She sits right off. Takes dead aim. She's gotten there and half of her six starts. One time was going a mile. She was pulled up. Another was going five. And a half and another was going this five for a long distance where she just Ran Out of real estate. I think the class relief heading up to southern California's GonNa help our causes. Well I think she makes him sense. Princess Vivian the number five Catalino Martinez top rotors northern California. This philly debuted on the turf as a three year old last year. Guppy just ahead of a big number over fourteen to one and has not seen the lawn since Very very curious share some. Recently on fantasy he ran in February She's on the win streak. In fact those are the two middle of the pack. Five and six princes. Vivian and fantasy heat and you know the more I look at these two. I'm going to switch it up princess. Vivians gave me the topic for me. I'm going to try her With the regency in reasonably the Camilo. Urso on Saturday at Golden Gate Fields. We'll take a break come back.

Mother-mother takes the lead on mediate confronted by hard not to love and Lady Menges in for a fight to at Ralph. There's a furlong left to go. And it's hard not to under very confident handling just cruising on by and what a classy filly. This one is hard not to love will absolutely dominate the Santa Monica as she wins by four easy lengths mother-mother suck it then zoo. Shine lady walk back. Will the hard to love? Will it be see in the sent demaria on Sunday at the Great Race Place? Welcome back to the weekend stakes preview presented by narrow. That's Mike Penn is going to have Brad Cox tomorrow to talk about the return of monoploy girl. She made it a winning one. Two weeks ago tomorrow at Churchill downs on their opening day last weekend we saw Dunbar road. Come back and take the Shawny at Churchill downs. She's four mama girl. Five maybe five. She was second may still be elevated for the win in the first ever. Saudi Cup depending on what goes on with maximum security. We've seen I think. Bobby the big shooters east and in the Mid West. Let's say they who been spending a lot of time in the Midwest at this point career On Sunday we take a look out west Because I think it's hard to really argue right now that CC and hard not to love lead those divisions maybe you sprinkle a little Bella and she's Bella fiends kind of the the the middle. You're right because see see now is really establish herself as the top philly going. Long out there I believe hard not to love kind of still trying to figure out what she's going to do. But I would think this sprint distance. Better for her Bella. Fina she kind of goes either way but this is the fun thing now as racing starts holding back up we see these divisions stock take shape Start to have a little bit of a pecking order and I think she's going to take on. Just a field of five in that in that great to Santamaria Mile and a sixteenth on Sunday at Santa Anita is it hers are not the love while first of all. It's a field of five for now. I wouldn't be surprised if there's at least one scratch. I think they had a tough time making this race. Go Number Five Katie. Trade just ran this past Monday at Santa Anita so you know whether they bring her back on five days rest in a great to racist questionable fighting mad just ran two weeks ago I happen to think that although CC beat hard not to love pretty impressively when they squared off in the beholder mile hard not to love did not have the trip she wanted. She went to the lead that day and I am convinced that she is better tracking other runners than she is going to lead and factor last two losses. Had I believe have been when she's been sent to the front and she just packs it in. I don't know if she just needs a target but if fighting mad runs in the race I think she's got enough speed to make the lead over hard not to love and hard not to love won't be able to get lead which will be good for her and Jockey Mike Smith. I honestly think that the two races prior to that Bohol beholder mile a grade. One LIBRARIAN THE GRADE TO SANTA. Monica would not only be see they would horrify CC. Now I know those are one turn races and this is to turn race tomorrow but I am looking for hard not to love who is probably going to be a little bit of an overlay to get a better trip and turn the tables on CC in the Santa Maria. Take a look when they ran against each other in the beholder mile. Hard not to love was three to five that day and CECE was four to one now. I know beater pretty impressively and then she came back and won the apple blossom since then. But I think there's more in the tank for hard not to love will see if she gets the The trip she wants on Sunday. I became a believer in C C last time out And certainly and I were talking about how. When he ran in the acorn she was completely against the race track and broke him in first time out ran into will repeat winner in Lady Ninja and then re really well a completely against it was an inside speed track. She was in post nine. She was outside the whole way. She I mean it was really just. The last sixteenth of a mile fell apart and lost some ground lead. It was a big race and he'd been waiting to better back and obviously he wasn't looking to grab one or two in the end. He got a lot of the four to one of the beholder mile. I can tell you that. Been waiting to bet this horseback trip handicaps waiting and then they sat a lower post. Fourteen last time out in the truth be told if it wasn't for a phenomenal ride on Ali's candy. Joel Rosario trying to steal them on the front end probably would have won. That apple blossom a little more easily easily from post fourteen. I'm a believer. I'm not trying against her. Good luck to hard not to love. I don't think card not the love really wants to go along. I think she wants that. Rippin run going seven eighths I think. Cc's cinch in the great to Santamaria this Sunday at the great race place already talked a little bit about the California Oaks. John Wong trainer of both Ray while the one in the two dynasty of her own. Join this earlier on the program. If you missed it you can go back and listen to podcast form a little later on this evening here. At Horse Racing Radio Dot Net Milena sixteenth for the California oaks for your old calibrate phillies Open Company Race. Actually three year old fillies go a mile and a sixteenth on the all weather field of seven. Bob baffert shipping up Simon Callaghan Put a couple of Van Patty Gallagher's they're a real wide open bunch affiliate here. It is and number six mind out was last seen running second apar- core who I assume if you like park or the day before at Santa Anita you'd think that mind out on Sunday at Golden Gate would have a big chance. I certainly think she does. She's never raised on anything but the TURF. But if you go with the theory that turf horses like running on synthetic tracks and vice versa. I'm not sure that It will hurt mind outs. Chances Good second last time out. She's going to have to run at and honestly I think any of the three races. She's run in southern California. Would make her one of the ones if not the one to beat on Sunday. The only one. I'm really worried about is Bob Baffert trained ECLAIR Who SHIPPED UP TO GOLDEN GATE TO WIN the Golden Gate? Debutante sprinting When we last saw but that was back at the end of November so now she's coming off a little bit of a layoff and trying a little bit of a longer distance I think these two phillies are very very close. But I think mind out the way I would go I think ray Wa is going to get the trip of all trips in here I think dynasty ever own is going to go to the lead. Her uncouple stablemate. I think he's she's GonNa Keep Molly. Oh mcevoy company on the Front End. I if anybody does I think mind out is the best of the shippers. I'm with you But I think Ray wa who has finished second in her last four starts finally breaks through going the mile and a sixteenth item Milena sixteen threes. The Best I think she gets a little help on the front end with a little bit of a pace tool and I think she comes running and gets the money. I will take the number one ray. Watts get the money in that. California oaks on Sunday all six races in the books including that bonus meaning research churchill down so that makes seven on now for the naira becks. Best Bat the naira beds. Best that all right. Bob Newman where we're going. I'm going to go to that maiden race on Saturday Churchill downs. That's their eighth race. A mile and a sixteenth of the seventy nine thousand dollars person. I think number three Mao. Mau is going to be putting in a big Ron from off the pace at a juicy price. Ten to one on the morning line. Bobbies giving you price. I'm giving you the Chalk. I Love Lucy. I don't see him beaten the Santa Maria. I gotta get on board with a narrow becks best. Bet I'm taking CC. To be hard not to love in the great to Santa. Maria on Sunday accent. I need a job always bobby. We'll do it again on Wednesday when Beautiful Belmont Park Returns to Action.

Plenty available wherever you get your podcasts. This is a CBC podcast. Hello I'm Carol off, and I'm Chris Bowden. This is as it happens the podcast edition. Tonight Action Predation a civil rights lawyer in Los Angeles wants a seismic shift in the nature of policing in the United States and the vet shift doesn't happen fast. Departments may be defended or even dismantled a force to be reckoned without how the city of Camden New Jersey disbanded and rebuilt its own police department, and how the reforms reformed the forces relationship with. With the community and visit, they'll never stop revisiting after police shoot and kill a first nations woman during a wellness check in New Brunswick, members of her family want answers what they call a senseless killing suspension bridge of disbelief after some renovations. San Francisco's Golden Gate Bridge is singing, and you don't have to be in the immediate area to hear. It's immoderate. Rehearsal a fortune Sasha Dent went on hundreds of carefully planned missions in search of forest, fans, famous buried treasure, and now that someone else has found the chest. She has things to get off hers and Carpet Tedium. We hit the ground walking with two extremely pedestrian stories from our archives, one about the most boring lecturer in England the other about a video game. That's inaction packed as it happens the Monday edition radio. That's got a case of the Mondays means. In. The wake of the killing of George, Floyd, some us. Cities are offering police, reforms and funding cuts, and some cities are going much farther in Minneapolis, a majority of city council members of thrown their support behind a plan to completely disband the city police department, and meanwhile in Los Angeles. The city has promised to significant budget cuts the LAPD and some are hoping. That's the start of something much bigger. Connie Rice is a civil rights lawyer WHO's been fighting for reforms in the LAPD for years. We reached her in Los Angeles. Ms Rice. Is there a change in the air new cities? Do you think that they're getting serious about looking at their police forces? I think you're seeing seismic change in the political view of racial injustice, systemic racial injustice. And I. Don't think we've seen anything like it. Since the civil rights revolution in the sixties, the United States, so yes, there there's political change in the Air these sustained protests in every major city, and even small cities with majority white participants. Hasn't been seen since the sixties. And you're hearing from these city councils in number of places including very significantly, Minneapolis says that they are on track to perhaps even disband their police department to remake it completely. What do you make of I? Guess we need to look at what's happening in your city in Los Angeles with La's Mayor Eric Garcetti Sang. He'll cut as much as one hundred fifty million dollars from the police, department. I think that the the efforts to cut those amounts of money from police departments are gestures in the right direction, but I wouldn't. I wouldn't talk about it as a defunding police, I would talk about it as transformative investment in delivering public safety to areas that have never had it. But there are two sides to this to this solution to not having this kind of unrest, not having this kind of anger, not having this kind of a racial conflict in the united, states. Every single major autopsy on on United States riots of the last century said you have to do two things you have to fix your police, so they stopping predators and start being protectors in poor communities, especially in poor black communities. Second thing you have to do in the big thing you have to do is end what the McCone commission in nineteen sixty five said, and the spiral of despair meaning end the endemic poverty that is the kindling for the sparks of police abuse. We ask that question. After the nineteen ninety-two uprisings after the Rodney King verdicts. In Los Angeles, and the price, tag for just getting the basic infrastructure of banks, grocery stores, credit unions, just the basic infrastructure for a functioning economy in the south Los Angeles. Neighborhoods was six billion with a B.. That was thirty years ago. You want to know how much La raise. They outsourced to corporate America. Rebuild La, and they raised three hundred million, so we've never been serious about providing the upward mobility infrastructure for destitute and desperate communities that have nothing, and now they're in a covid pan-demic. That's going to destroy what little they have put police abuse on top of that. That's what you're seeing. And after the Rodney King the it seems that the police forces in L. A. The tendency was to increase them and the theory being that the more police they'd have more time to actually have civic engagement and not just be W-. They're fighting crime. As they said that was the argument, so. What do you make the fact that the police departments now almost ten thousand members? Well if you look at if you look at policing studies. L. A. Still doesn't have enough officers her. Population officer, to population ratio is upside down in L. A., but it's never going to be. The at the level that traditional law enforcement training says it needs to be. And we have to re. How halley provides safety, Los Angeles. Police Department has some incredibly intelligent. well-meaning Leaders Beck Bratton even chief more. But they are presiding over a mission that is toxic. They are presiding over a police culture. Of Impunity that is toxic. So you can have really good leadership that very good intent. You can have great officers who really do believe that they're protecting people, but if you look at what they do in how they do it, they're not providing safety in poor communities. They're providing. shock and awe suppression. Containment enforcement. That is not safety. And it ends up producing the they're the machinery of mass incarceration, the new Jim Crow. And they they don't understand that what they're doing isn't making poor, African Americans or Latinos in rural. America poor white people feel safe. They feel hunted. They feel persecuted. They feel like they can't win. And there right. So. We have to change the mission of policing. From suppression containment enforcement in poor areas to wrap around safety that means the police are gonNA join teams of other people like mental health. A medical doctors get educators in their the social workers. You know you've got a police need to be part of a team that delivers healing safety. Not Shock and awe, gladiator enforcement, but what you're hearing in recent days of the police chief. Michael Moore is mentioned him. WHO said that the the people who are protesting? They have as much responsibility for the death of George Floyd as the officers He's since said he misspoke, but we've also heard from the Union of that. Police Department who said that this is just a charade this decision on the part of the mayor to look at the funding. It doesn't look like there's going to be much cooperation from the police, does it? It's not clear quite yet. How what? The reaction is GonNa go back into their bunkers? I don't know. I think the way I would have gone about. Of course that statement was was bad. The chief said it was bad. Too, I'm not focused. There's too much focus on misstatements by different politicians and police. I'm interested in the actions and I think that the entity fund could have been productively done if you'd looked at all of the other departments because two hundred million is not, it might get you a community center with some programs, but if the price tag is six billion. What are we really talking about? The money is in Washington six billion three Boeing, contracts with the Defense Department in the United States. A ten billion, which is really what the real dollar amount would be today, and we're not even talking about another fifteen billion for coin in East La, which are the poorest Latino areas in La so for twenty billion dollars, you can end the poverty and construct upward mobility infrastructure for these communities, which is what all of the post riot reports have said you have to do at the same time. You're changing your police, look. The police need to understand. This is a new day. The consent of the governed for predatory policing and mass incarceration racial injustice is hereby revoked. They need to understand they either change how they police or we will dismantle police departments as the exist today and create wraparound safeties strategies institutions. and. They've got a choice now. They can either do it on their terms or will be done to them by people who don't understand as much about what they know. We will leave it. There Ms Rice I appreciate speaking with you, thank you. My pleasure. We reached civil rights lawyer. Connie Rice in Los Angeles and and. and. Phrase defunding police is one of the rallying cries of the ongoing protests around the world, and for anyone who is baffled by what exactly that would look like. Camden. New Jersey has a suggestion look here. Seven years ago, the city dismantled its police force and start over and bruce main witnessed the whole process. He's a Canadian. Who's lived in Canada for the past thirty two years. He's also the founder and president of Community Development Group called urban. Promise we reached Bruce Main in Camden. Lead Camden New Jersey to reform its police force seven years ago. Well, I think it was a combination of things. you know one is Camden, Zaveri, poor city and so you know, it receives a lot of sort of. Funding from the state, and so there was a combination of things that I think led to the. Disbanding of the Camden Police Force in twenty thirteen, and then it was sort of reimagined in this new Camden County police force, and that's been in existence for Alaska six or seven years so just before we get to what it became the reimagining of the Camden police force. How necessary was the reform? What was the state of policing in Camden well a couple things one is because of the sort of lack of funding You know we were seeing a decrease in police officers on the streets so I think at its lowest I think there's about one hundred. Hundred and seventy five full time police officers in Camden whereas today there's over four hundred. So that was certainly part of it was just you know the resources weren't there? When the existing police force was dismantled that freed up a lot of resources, you know basically the entire police force was laid off and then they could reapply to come back to work, and then a lot of young police officers were were hired at You know lower lower salaries, so that allowed more police to be on the streets and you know resources to be spread further. Course. The fear always is it to do something like this to be radical and to change the way police do. Their work means that there will be more victims of crime. So what happened to the crime? Rates encounter after you did this. Yeah, I mean there's a lot of controversy around it because I believe two thousand twelve, we had the highest rate that we'd ever had. And we were. You know voted like the most dangerous city in America, so we had sixty five murders that year and for A. A small city that was astronomical, and so you know there was a lot of fear that with this transition that crime would go up significantly and spike and what we've seen over the few years. again is is the decrease in crime and part of that I? Think can be attributed to more officers on the streets, but I think part of it too i. a large degree was was the chief fleas that came in but seven or eight years ago Scott. Thomsen who had really a community. Based policing approach philosophy, which you know, got police out of the cars out walking the streets interacting with residents. You know showing up to local businesses talking owners playing basketball in the parks, kids, and and just really kind of breaking down that US versus them mentality and I think you know I think we're seeing some some really good results from that and he in fact was helping to lead the black lives matter protests. Yeah, this is a new so. Yeah the new chief, please. Who just came in about six months ago, but the last two weekends. We've had peaceful protests in the city. To see that happening in. What was you know? One of the most violent cities in the country I think is a real. It's a great story and. It, it didn't happen overnight it, you know it was. It happened because you know six or seven years of I, think really you know intentional relationship building between. Law Enforcement and local residents see if you found in Camden that murders are down by two thirds since the year before these reforms, overall violent crime is down by nearly half. What what's signal? has this sent to other police forces? Who are saying that they they can't reform in this way. They can't change because they're they're. They're into law enforcement. again, not an expert. This is kind of a little bit outside of. My area but I mean again. I think you've gotta look at successful models, and again that the city of Camden was sort of almost. You know I almost had to move in this direction and again it was met with I. Mean You can imagine with resistance initially, and you know some people perceived it as union busting and You know there was a lot of concerns you know. Police officers that had given their careers to the police force. You know so, but again if you if you look as you just stated what's happened in the last six or seven years? You know you see some real significant shifts in numbers of all kinds of crime. And You know you'd hope that that would send kind of a different message across the country around the world that you know again. It's to serve to protect and you know the thing about a city like Camden is you know the majority of residents and I work with especially with us. You know they're. They're great kids. When when the when the philosophy is sort of us against them, you know it creates you know these these barriers between youth and local residents, and and this institution that there to really serve the people. Number of people in policing in training in the unions of in the United States are arguing the opposite. They say that they're. They need to have almost warrior training. It's like there's a militarization view the police, and that's been the trend in your in the United States and in Canada what would happen of Camden return to the kind of police force that it had in the past. Well! It's hard to say, but you know again I I, think he? You gotta look what has happened. And you know sort of moving from this fear based approach to policing and this fear based approach to how you look, and perceive people living in these communities and to you know again really be intentional about human is. you know both police and residents? You know anything that's fear driven. You know, it it. It may have some short term results, but it it doesn't make for enduring healthy flourishing communities, and that's what we need. That's what I want for my kids at our promise. I want you know I. Want them to live in a safe city, but you know I, also want them to live in a city where you know they can. They can look to please as role models and examples and and even an inspiration of what they may be come one day but when you, you know sort of militarized the whole system I think it I think it creates a really dangerous precedent. Bruce, we will leave it there. Following this story and I appreciate speaking with you today. Thank you all right. Thanks, Carol Take Care bye-bye. Bruce main runs a community development organization, in Camden New Jersey a city that has reformed its police force tomorrow. As it happens, we'll hear from Jacob Rodriguez who grew up in Camden and describes his experiences pre and post reform. An elusive treasure chest hidden in the rocky mountains, has reportedly been found, but the saga surrounding the man who buried it is far from over Forrest Fenn, a retired antiques dealer claimed to have buried a treasure chest worth millions about ten years ago. He wrote a poem to help. People find it back in two thousand and thirteen. Carol tried to price some clues out of him. You have left. Clues in the form of a poem. Yes, ma'am, the closer buried their. The parliament my book has had that will help a person in with the clues. The book won't take you to the treasure chest, but it'll help you with the clues that are in the point, said some of the so maybe it'll key to the clues in the poem then they're nine including in the parliament. If you can figure out. Those clues they will take you to the treasure chest, and you can have it if you can find. Some of them seem that some of the clues maybe are things that people locally would know you say beginning where warm waters halt and take it in the canyon down not far but too far to walk, put in below the home of Brown that seems like a couple of clues to me. That sounds like three or four. So, but you have to kids. You had to know where the home of Brown is. That's right. Okay, so you have to know where warm waters halt! But there says there'll be no paddle up your creek, just heavy loads and water high couple more clues there. Sounds like after me. I'm not leading. I'm not tempting you to disclose anything here then. No I'm not going to give any any more clues. That was forest fence, speaking with Carol and twenty thirteen, since then an estimated three hundred and fifty thousand people have gone searching for that treasure chest. At least five people died trying to find it. MR faces lawsuits from multiple treasure hunters, claiming they were duped or that the treasure doesn't exist at all, but over the weekend forest ban gave his fans the news they'd been bracing for Sasha. Dent is one of those fans and treasure hunters. We reached her in junction city Kansas. Sasha has it sunk in for you yet that the search for this buried treasuries is I guess finally over. I think so. There's a lot of emotions that go with something like this ending, but I am an I accept that it's over that I was not the victor. For, how do you know? How do you see why? Victory, but how can you verify that? It was actually found he for spend isn't giving any information about who it was. He said there. There are no photographs. There's no proof offered. He said it was just a man from back east. So Do, are you gonNA, take him at his word. Well, yes, I called for a spin and verified myself, and he said it was found and I believe him. Say He will be releasing photos. So we. The public should be getting some proof that at least someone has the treasure chest. What got you into searching for this treasure chest? I've always been interested in puzzles. And this was one of the biggest most interesting puzzles I had ever come across, and from the moment I heard about it. I was hooked. There was no question that I would participate and try to find it. gives us a sense of what you went to lengths. You went to to try and find this treasure. Well I wouldn't say that. I did anything crazy, but it made me step outside. My Comfort Zone, which was exciting. And you know, of course the thought of coming upon that treasure chest someday really. I mean that was enticing, but I had to learn a lot about nature and the environment I had to learn about animals, telling time based on the sun, the stars, the flora and fauna of the area I searched in and I had a lot of fun. Even find the treasure back. What else did you find in your travels well? I found a husband. A florist introduced me to my husband almost two years ago, that was really nice to come together with someone who shared the same interests that I didn't have the same passion for it that I did of course. We have our disagreements about where we thought it was and let the clues meant, but it was still fun to do that with someone you know not only. Was this an adventure but I got to share that adventure with someone, and you went on three hundred different trips ten thousand hours. You spent researching the clues is that? That right those are my estimations. Yes, I in the early days I would investigate every moment that my my son was born right when I first heard about the treasure hunt so I spent every minute he was asleep. Researching and I think I have searched more times than any other person who has searched for force fence treasure, and we're talking about tens of thousands, even hundreds of thousands of people who have been searching for this treasure. There's been consequences though I mean there have five people have died in their pursuit of this treasurer. Actually that numbers a little bit higher, it's either six or seven now and yes, there was one man who accidentally just took a MISSTEP and ended up sliding down a cliff and dying. That was just one sort of freak accident. The remaining ones made some very big mistakes, and unfortunately in those cases they put themselves in those situations, but there are those who. who think that forest fan should carry at least some responsibility for what happened to those people including those? We interviewed a woman a few years ago. WHOSE HUSBANDS REMAINS REVENGE? They found, but when he was missing, she wanted for spend to give her a sense of where the treasure was because she figured she could find her husband that Wayne. He wouldn't so look. First of all. That was his ex wife. Notice current wife and no I don't believe forest carries any wait for those or responsibility I should say for those individuals. They made poor choices that particular individual tried to go whitewater rafting down the Rio Grande River in a child inflatable lake raft. Completely ill-prepared, he did not plan well. He didn't tell anyone where he was going. I can't tell you the because I've I've known forest for several years now. Or is does not take those situations lightly, and he has given every warning possible to the public at large to try to keep people safe, and the first rule of searching for his treasure is not to go anywhere that a seventy nine or eighty year old man couldn't go because that's how old he was when he had the chest. Did you have any regrets for the deaths? Of course he did. You can see the weight of those deaths on his face when he discusses it, and that was never the intention, the intention was to give people in the modern era an adventure that almost doesn't exist anymore, but you know some of the treasure hunters became convinced that there was no treasury test to begin with, and they've even filed lawsuits against him. Unfortunately there's there's no second place and people are just unable to accept that they did not have the right ideas, either they weren't smart, enough or clever enough to figure out his poem, or they're just opportunists looking for a way that they can circumvent the system for their own benefit. It's even more unfortunate that forced fen tried to do something so incredibly benevolent. I mean who puts a million dollars worth of gold in a box and hides it and says you can have it if you can find it. How close do you think you got to finding it? I can't. I can't speculate on that because it's. It's a double edged sword. If I? Think I was a million miles off. I would be hard on myself thinking. I was too stupid to figure it out. If I was close, it would be heartbreaking to know that I was just mere inches away from. An incredible victory I can't speculate on either I honestly hope I never find out because I think either way, it would just be heartbreaking. But if he reveals pictures, and he gives about more information, might forest fan also tell you where it is? No no forest has always said that he would do with the finder wants to do, and if the finder doesn't want to reveal the ultimate location than he won't. What about you? What do you do next to me now that you have this bug for looking for for treasure for buried treasure? What do you do for an encore? Well there's actually tons of armchair. Treasure hunts out there. There's one called the Golden L.. A. France, which is worth far more than Boris fens treasure. There's lots of one state side one that's been going on since nineteen eighty-one and so I I've already ventured into those things. Because I knew this day would come. This adventure would end, and it would be time to find a new one, and while there's a great deal of sadness that I won't be looking for forced fence treasure anymore. There's also a sense of relief that I'll have the time and opportunity to focus on some of these other adventures. Happy hunting the thank you, thank you session by. Sasha Dent went on more than three hundred trips to the rocky mountains to find an elusive treasure chest forest fan, the man who buried it has announced that the chest has been found.

When police arrived at Chantelle Moore's door in Edmonston New Brunswick last Thursday been called to do a wellness check now. The twenty six year old woman is dead shot and killed by a police officer. Police say MS Moore had a knife, an attack, the officer who quote had no choice but to defend himself. Quebec's independent police watchdog has been asked to investigate since New Brunswick has police watchdog of its own and first nations chiefs are calling for an independent probe of the provincial justice system. Ms Moore's family also wants answers today. Several members of her family arrived in New Brunswick from her home province of British Columbia. Moses Martin is Shantelle Moore's great uncle. He's also the chief councillor of the telecom first nation. We reached chief Martin into pheno. Keith Martin, first of all I'm sorry for your loss. Yes, thank you very much for your acknowledgement in. Order to understand. What is your understanding? As far as you know at this point of view just for? Why were police called to Sean? Tells apartment last Thursday. apparently, there was a wellness call. That was made. And it's it's hard for us to. Really understand what really happened and what the nature of the call was, and then also when you. Get no information on where we're left to make assumptions on on what happened and. We're told that she was shot multiple times. So you know really wavings questions and Oh. was that was the intent to kill? Why didn't hey try to disarm Why didn't he run? Tinos have. All kind of crossing. Huffing up. Okay this back to what few details we have at this point so. Police went to her home to check on her wellbeing. She's shot multiple times and killed You know what would happen to that. They say she had a knife when they're I what you know about that? Yes. That's the same message that we got and that's the piece that I'm having trouble trying to understand because Chantelle as we knew her was a very. Beautiful Young Lady and the end Inside and out. So. It's hard to understand how she's being described by police. Coming out a trained police officer with a knife. Difficult. But again there's an investigation going on into. The police aren't giving many answers to these questions, are they? No. No, WE'RE! We're not getting any answers at all. So do you have? A belief or concerned that her at first nations identity here first, nations ethnicity had a role to play in what happened to her. I don't know that either. I'm sorry. Are you couldn't say one way or the other? Other members of your family are casting doubts on the police version of what happened to Shantelle. Seduce share that. Personally I. Can't say that I'm involved in politics and spend my lifetime. Building relationships. That's what I do and and Yeah, it's Difficult I know that racism I. Know that all too well because you know I I've seen it heard it and. For me, it's time that We stopped talking about it in and. Begin to start planning on how we deal with this because. We're all. People that. Call this place home. Can I just go back to what happened on Thursday? Just for a moment and I know you're on. Son Is as a twenty year veteran of the rcmp from from what you know of policing. It doesn't seem that there was something that might have happened between the rival and the shooting of Shantelle. was there an opportunity in your view to deescalate? What was going on if whatever it was? I would think that Yes, they could have been or should have been some de escalation of if he had a nice. He's a tiny lady and hand to. Train police officer. You know it just doesn't make any sense to me. Senseless killing. Soup Quebec's independent police watchdog has been asked to investigate the incident independently. What are the most important questions you want answered? Oh! Boy, all kinds of wise, and why did this happen? And why? Why was she shot? You know I. It's hard to to put into words 'cause you know all of our motions. They're all. kind of over the top so. Yeah I mentioned my son. That's A member, the forest and Yeah, he's he's. He's quite well liked in in in that he serves, and the brought him up to understand the law respecting our communities in them. And, what is he saying about the death of Shantelle? Speaks, those about it and and yeah. I call him when I wonder when I got the news, and he was shocked to Islam. Shantelle had her own daughter, didn't she? Five year old and she'd gone to New Brunswick to be with her mom and her daughter. What stories would you tell her daughter about her mother? What do you want the daughter to know about her mom? Her mother was fearful kind. Very well-spoken person then. Yeah she Wanted to be near her daughter and know all the things that come with being a parent. In our in our family, especially in my own family, we talk about lessons we've been talking as. Individuals payout, parents and that Like can't demand respect my after. Very simple but lifetime of learning. She's not and I hope that you'll get the answers to your questions and I appreciate you speaking with us. Thank you. Thank you very much. Thank you. Chief Moses Martin is Shell Moore's great uncle. We reached him into pheno BC and we have more on this story on our web page at CBC DOT CA SLASH AI H. France while ago thinks it might be time for Quebec's quiet revolution to be followed by a quiet evolution, the suffering the Quebec premier was asked at a news conference about the protests that followed the killing of George Floyd by Minneapolis police premier. Go acknowledges that there is racism in Quebec, but he won't say that that racism is systemic. The CBS's Anthony Nearest stone wanted to know why. A lot of who attended say the took it as a slap in the face that their premier. DENIES THE EXISTENCE OF SYSTEMIC RACISM. Specifically your term systemic. In Quebec. They took it as a big offense, a slap in the face and they say that you don't get it that it's not a system of racism of intentional racism that it's. It's a collection of biases, visual dead lead a lot of advantages for a lot of communities. What do you say to? The people say that you don't get it that you're not making an effort to get it and not your plan to fight. Racism in Quebec is useless unless us make an effort to see it. It from their perspective, I don't understand why people are trying to stick on one word, I think what is important is to see and to all agreed that there is some racism in Quebec and we don't want that anymore. So that's the key and We have to be careful about letting understand me. Be a majority of quebeckers have a problem. That's why I said we had a problem with the place of Francophones. In Quebec, we had a problem with the place of a woman in Quebec. We've. Improved the, situation. We have to do the same for racism and not fight against. One word but fight against racism they're saying that. By not using the word systemic, you're downplaying the problem. You're making it less than what it is by seeing them. Because you keep insisting, the majority of Quebecers are not racist, which is not what people that were protesting are saying they're saying that racism and discrimination is common. My what I say to them. Is that Is there a system of racism in Quebec? Some experts. That's their definition of systemic. I understand that some other have another definition. But why should we fight for a word? Instead of fighting against, racism? Quebec Premier Francois ago, responding to questions from the CBC's and Sunny Narrow Stall in Montreal. In, her essay eulogy on the Flapper Zelda Fitzgerald wrote. She refused to be bored chiefly because she wasn't boring. Now those are inspiring words, but they overlook one simple truth that sometimes being incredibly boring on purpose can be fascinating. Tonight stories from the archives revolve around absolutely mind boggling levels of monotony. In the first case, our guest is so phenomenally doll that he was voted dullest in a field where dullness is extremely common Dr David Coward was the most boring lecturer in England and in Nineteen, seventy seven Barbara, from and Allen Maitland found out just how boring, the most boring lecturer can be. Dr Karen. How did you win the top prize? The there were eight contestant, and we all spoke for a couple of minutes. Each we judged by a panel of experts say students. One of them was dressed up as a good. And really the award went to the to the funniest speaker as by South because I mean I get some sort. Isn't it that it was a bit of a joke the real balls didn't come forward. They never do. Thought! How difficult was the competition? Where was that? The competition was tough I won the won the coveted trophy by a mayor Offenbach, so that gives you some idea of how tough competition laws and inside my nearest Dr. spoken. For Five minutes and he was wearing pajamas well. Subject. What I talked about Public Naveh trees. This is the sort of thing I said. Lost Time it is causing lectures on public hygiene policy. I suggested things you can do with sewage. This week I should be going into public lavatories. At a solitaire on the subject who said the laboratories of the heartbeat of the city it said of Grafitti. Of course. Authorities have picked up are lots of things from toilets they have visited and very generous. They have caught the onto this student. Has a doctoral. Has Been written off the subject, but I would like today to avoid being bogged down by General. Generalities. I would get my attention to these special problems of the land you Ryan. which like the whole in the road is cut and play hard? Pressed by Likud municipal authorities was movement. I inflation. Okay. You've lost out. He's he's dead away. Game. Grand speech, DOT grand simply grand. What it was about. To tell the that sounded a bit like a BBC Talk! Well! Talks here anymore I think they just took a few minutes then, but in fact it took about five minutes to do because everybody was throwing paper doll and making route noisy machines. and it was it was quite hectic. Why can't you humiliate aboard to stop? Have you ever figured out? Well, I do I. I think that the secret is that four. Don't actually know when they're boring people. Do you think that's true I think the various secrets of the The the the amount of detail to go into. And the the amount of repetition as well. I think you can recognize a boarding speaker when you when you when care him. Don't you think who's your wife there? No she wasn't actually by wise teachers, but I mean she. She did give reactive. While by? said, what was it like to be body to the most boring lecture? She said that that boring Okay, what happened? Do you in class after you one? Well I think the English tend to be rather is. When I met my tosses today. No one mentioned anything about it whatsoever. I think that's the very thing. I guess they didn't want to get more of it. Congratulations professor, Karen. Thanks. Bye Bye. Okay bye-bye! From March of Nineteen Seventy seven Professor David, coward the most boring lecturer in England. Now we play video games to escape from that kind of tedium. We shoot bazookas. zombies because our regular lives involves standing in lines, which is why Rajiv best video game was so confusing in it. You kind of our Zombie and you just standing in a line in two thousand thirteen carroll asked Mr Basu to explain the finer points of his game waiting in Line Three D.. G. This seems like a fascinating game waiting in line three D.. Yeah, it's It's a new game just launched on Monday, Well. You know what I think we're GONNA play a round of and just going to get it up on my laptop here and then maybe you can tell us. What the scene is and what we're going to do this here we go. I wanted to do click to start. Really basic you're. All right there we go. What am I looking at here? All right so you should see that you're in a line of about twenty people and you the keys to move left and right. and you either the awake indicators going down. Yeah, and all you have to do is punch thousand to stay away. Pushing the Arrow keys to move and I'm not really moving much as maybe a fraction. In any. that. As you get with the guy. And you hit faith key. To. Help. And the the tricky is need need? But not st much otherwise you. Keep punching myself. Stay Away Yup. Right, right I just didn't stay awake, right? I. Game over. And scored. Zero points. Yeah you need to I, will I will I think to? Get you in a single point in. Is there any way to gain any points in this game? Is, but you have to stick it for quite some time. But I mean so. He's what I saw I was in line. Right pushing the keys didn't take anywhere except to look behind me and see more people behind me in line. And I could punch myself from the face to stay awake. That's it. Yeah yeah, and it's. It's really a game of balance between punching yourself. And Seeing the health indicator. She's getting the right balance, so you can keep your place in line ready. But what am I in line four? I mean that's that's into interpretation. Right I don't even know the purpose of being line right right and I never move up in line, but that's something. I think want to stick it out. Most people lost a couple of minutes. I've seen. People have been tweeting. Their schools one person last twelve minutes one slash twenty seven minutes so it kind of depends you stick it out. When stay with escape for twenty seven minutes? I duNno, I mean I guess funny. Thing is I think the aim of this game was to create something that was so fun and uninteresting. It might come back full circle, and you might want to stick stick with it and see what happened. You have actually accomplish. Would you say that to do this is? This is an incredibly boring game. That's that's a lot of that. Sites and blogs have been saying. Okay well I'm GonNa, have another. Try here at playing. Waiting in Lines Three D. into what the indicate going down. Onto just. In to keep your wife. Too many times. I'm dead. I died twice actually what ten seconds fifteen seconds on this game, not so good. Yeah, it's It's been a real mix. A lot of people are kind of between two and three minutes. Now because you by your accent I presume that you are British. Call the queuing game. It's funny, because I. I've been in the US now for. Three years and I just thought waiting in line it would be a more accessible international version of the game. And how has it done internationally your game? really good actually. I'm in the first twenty four hours. It's been played fifty thousand times. It's been picked up by a ton of magazines. Like why I'd just kind of thing how else it guys picked up. League, are you in as far as creating really really boring online games? A lot of people have been comparing it to a game that was created by Sega in the ninety s called desert bus where you just drive a bus. Indefinitely! But? It's kind of in that League of people wondering what's going on right. Yeah, and I can say this incompatible but you. Do get somewhere then when you do you time back and goes back. School one point as well when you get. To congratulate. Creating really really dull game. Thanks a lot take by. Carol talking to Rajiv Best Basu creator of the video game waiting Line Three D. in November of two thousand thirteen. Over. You're just enjoying the sunshine in the gentle breeze one day. When suddenly this sound chills your blood. That sounds video recorded a few days ago in San Francisco a lot of people, there heard the strain noise, and many of them wondered whether aliens invading or ghosts or alien ghosts, none of those possibilities has been definitively discounted, but Mark Krieger has an equally plausible explanation for that sound. We reached him in San Francisco. Mark we just heard a bit of that strange sound that is been floating through your city. What did you think it was when you first heard it? I thought maybe something was wrong with the emergency broadcast system. Or maybe it was a cleaning truck at first, but just kept going on and on and on for hours and I knew that couldn't be. So yeah, very very strange sound, and so you started poking around. What did you discover about where it was coming from? Well the first thing I found was on twitter that someone in the presidio said. Can someone explained me why? This theory sound has been going on for an hour San Francisco, and he's a artists at industrial light magic in the Presidio, and took it upon himself to take a walk and try to walk toward the sound. And he just said he kept getting closer and closer to the Golden Gate Bridge, but couldn't find. To the Golden Gate. Bridge seems to be where. To Focus. How is it that it's coming from the Golden Gate Bridge? What did you find out? Well, it seems there's been a construction project that I wasn't aware of on the sidewalks of the Golden Gate Bridge, that supposedly is to help with wind mitigation for high winds, and apparently there is a side effect. Wow It's, it's whistling whistling wind. Yeah, it's very very powerful whistling wind. I'm four miles from the Golden Gate Bridge. I wouldn't call it loud, but it was. You know annoying. And it wasn't something I could easily to now with headphones or anything like that. How Far Away can you actually still pick up the sound? Well, I'm about four miles, and people reported hearing the sound in Oakland. Which is I? Think probably. A, ten miles or something like that and all over San Francisco so my guest is maybe twenty square mile area or so. Okay. So is it any particular wind that makes it sound more intense. Yet it seems to be very particular about the direction and the intensity of the wind so on Friday when we were all going crazy on twitter about it it was audible for many hours about three hours, but since then it's only been intermittently audible, and at a lower level now I do think people that are on the bridge or near the bridge are hearing it much more often, and there've been a bunch of recordings posted on twitter, showing the. But from this distance, we're not hearing it too often pitching that Edward Monk Painting on the bridge where the person's holding their head, maybe ears in there on the Golden Gate Bridge during the sound. Yeah I think it's like that and it's a very peculiar sound, also just because of all the different frequencies. It seemed to be being produced. This is a bit more of candidate. Get a sense of it. Seems like there's various. In there I mean it's it and some people have compared. It's like soundtrack for David Lynch film. Your Lot of soundtrack comparisons yon SAR Kella. pry Mingling. His name from Finland is a sound designer. And he wrote on twitter. The strongest one the frequency I guess is almost exactly a about four hundred and forty-one hurts than the other more persistent one is about four hundred eighty hurts a sharp. There are a couple more to later in the three ninety eight hurts, which is g three hundred fifty hertz, which is an F., and there's also some higher pitches at one kilohertz but faint. Okay? That's the science interpretation and there's somehow getting more artistic. Can you tell us a bit about Kyle Tobe ner had something to say about this. Do you know that one? Yeah, it's a little dark, but kind of poetic he writes it has been waiting nearly one hundred years biding its time searching for its voice, now sings a dreadful song, ancient, and forgotten it sings to the gods below the dark ruinous God's slumbering in the deep it summons them to rise and Scorch this world in flames. My this is very home. Eric I'm starting to think the sirens are doing this then. It's and you know there have been comments about. Is that the aliens. That's very calming. Sure it's not the aliens. Okay so is this now going to be a feature of life in San Francisco that when the West Wind is blowing, you're going to hear this. I have a feeling maybe F- got to be a very particular angle wins I think. So if that's the case, you know San Francisco. We're used to dealing with change and new. Things will be okay. and. Is it something that will haunt your dreams at night? Is this floats by maybe I? Hope it doesn't happen at night. I have to say I would be difficult to sleep. All Right Mike, Thanks for talking to us. Oh is a pleasure. Thank you. That was mark Krieger. He's in San Francisco. California and that is where we reached him.

This is bar harbor's debut three year old coal with a big pedigree making his career debut on turf put the replay source always down towards the inside can't see him here starting to rally can't get out to the clear, so Jose RT's is going to have to try and do it the hard way he's gonna have to try and find somewhere to run here. This actually finished his very well in this race because from this point on he's really never clear even coming down to the finish year. He's not gonna be able to find a lane to run to still gonna get second. Anyway, this is a very promising debut for a horse was huge, pedigree, giant, pedigree, shoot improve with experience. And maybe even a little bit more distance met your to watch a stakes race last week at Tampa Bay downs. Are you willing to go on record and saying this is an under the radar Kentucky oaks prospect? Yeah, I think at this point if you're not blown away by any of the big girl. At this point. Why not take a look at a horse like point of honor who goes out for George Weaver. This was her second lifetime start first time against winters happened being the Suncoast last weekend at Tampa. Let's roll that tape here. Look she's on the far outside. And I understand a lot of people have made it clear that they think that the outside is where you wanted to be at Tampa on the stay I loved everything about it though. I thought this is a really professional effort for her. I like the way that she finished and she's another one with some pedigree. She's a sibling to a stakes winner. The dam is a sibling to three stakes winners. Three graded stakes runners doing a little bit of everything West Virginia derby winners Wilshire winters, down the hill in the Daytona winner. So there's I think there's a lot here too. Like, this is a daughter curl and again for George Weaver. I don't think we've heard the last point of honor my worst watches a three year old as well. This one is trained by Steve Asmussen. His name is captain von Trapp. You three times at Churchill Downs as a two year old and was a money burner. Beaten, favourite all three times found trouble all three times made his seasonal debut at Oaklawn the other day with the addition of blinkers, and it looks like he's going to. Trouble again, he's number four in the white silks in between horses on the turn in this race in in about a second or two. He's just going to run right up on heels and check all the way out. And if you follow captain von transfers three starts you're saying well here he is. He's going to lose a short price yet again. But captain von Trapp to is credit is going to recover the jock isn't going to panic. He's going to split horses pretty professionally here. He's going to angle out to split horses five wide turning into the stretch. And once captain von Trapp gets into the clear. He runs these horses down in the lane. I wonder if the blinkers have gotten this worse to focus a little bit. And while captain von Trapp only earned a seventy five buyers speed figure, I think the source is still learning. I'm not saying he's a steak source right now. But I'd like to see as mustn't take it slow with them either. Oaklawn or at the fair grounds keeping them at shorter sprint distances. And maybe finding the next available condition anomalies of one other then this is trapped shot that cost two hundred ninety thousand dollars last year. I like the way you overcame trouble in that race. Keep an eye on for captain von Trapp, maybe an one x over the next month or so type or some handicapping the risen star is worth to Kentucky Derby qualifying point preps this week. Let's get to it. The field for the feature race at the fairgrounds on Saturday Kentucky Derby qualifying points on the line and the four hundred thousand dollar grade to risen star stakes at a mile and a sixteenth for expanded stakes previews of all the graded stakes races on Saturday and Sunday, plus lots lots more head on over to video dot dot com. Or the daily racing form YouTube channel, Matt the number thirteen kingly will scratch. We'll talk about him later. He is entered ends the morning line favorite in the L. Camino Ray L derby, let's start with the second choice on the morning line Owen. Dale coming off a win at the fairgrounds. It looks like the source has some up side. Unfortunately, we can't show that replay. Because it political reasons let's go back to his maiden score. All the way back, Indiana grand. You're gonna see this is miserable trip in the grand scheme of things. But ultimately, he weaves his way through and I think this was sort of the piece that showed off that perhaps this is a horse that has a future ahead of him to me the key with Dale for this race. We talked about it in the stakes preview. It depends on which figures you believe based on his most recent fairgrounds race, the ninety one buyer makes him a competitor. Right. There is one of the main contenders time form US the raw figure that they awarded him was a ninety five and there's usually about a twenty point differential between the two if you believe the twenty point sort of theory that means that one is either really high or one is really low. I just wanna know at a short price. I don't need to marry myself that ninety one buyer decide time form on this. Now, this is the second race on the Louisiana road to the Kentucky Derby, the first one was the Lecomte and Mike your top selection missed that race. He had a little bit of an illness. But when he was stretched out last year by trainer Bret Calhoun, we noticed immediate improvement. And he was in with a big chance turning into the stretch of the Breeder's Cup juvenile. We're talking about number three, Mr. money. I it'll be interesting to see what he does it because he did miss last with a little bit of an issue. But hopefully, everything's okay with because in my opinion if you're gonna play this race. The horses coming out of the Lecomte. I don't really think you want to horses that were just beaten by war of will. We'll see what happens maybe somebody can turn the tables on that horse. We're gonna talk about war in a minute. Because both of you guys decided to chalk it out in this race and take that horse. I think he is the horse to beat. I also think he's two for two hundred with a couple of really soft trips. And now he's got post fourteen or post thirteen with a scratch. So we'll see if he can overcome, but I'm gonna try and be with mister mind there. Let's look at his Breeders Cup this horse as you mentioned, Dan, they stretched out for the first time to starts back. I thought he looked good winning. You got a nice trip. But I thought he looked good winning it. He ran well in this race. This is probably the best that he could do at this stage of his career. He got a really good trip. He was in the mix of the top of the stretch. And he's just not good enough. You're gonna get out finished late in this race and settled for fourth. But all in all this, isn't this isn't a poor performance. If you can take a step forward off of this race and get a better trip. This time from it inside post. Maybe he's got a shot to pull off an upset. Breeders Cup juvenile is already produced three nicks stepped winners Matt agreement once told you get the chalk off your soup. Certainly did guess what going with the chocolate here. Like, Mike said, look more will I really liked him going into the Lecompte. I thought he sort of proved that he was much the best in there. Like, Mike said, I don't know that you wanna take anyone to finish behind this horse. And unfortunately for me, the fresh faces they just don't do much for me. Again. We can't show the lacob. Let's go back to the bourbon this was at Keeneland on grass. And I think again, this is a horse that to me has never run a poor race. He's been really difficult positions for a number of these starts whether is out there setting out fast, fractions, whether is on a boggy, turf course staying on with Earl timidly proving himself that maybe the main tracks actually better than the grass for him. I think he's a quality horse. Call me the chalk heating weasel here. I just think he's much the best in here. Look it'll be disappointing to me if he drops a clunker. If these shows up and runs well, and does what he's supposed to do. I think it's onto the Louisiana derby chunk eating weasels. I'm going with war of will as well. Very impressed with everything I saw on the Lecomte beating five of these common rivals. Yes. He had a good trip and this out. Post can be a bit disconcerting, but with tactical speed. I can see him getting into a similar situation stalking the pace three four wide brushing on the turn. And he's just a big good looking horse that does everything professionally. I think war of will just might be physically and mentally ahead of these horses right now, I think he could take another step forward. I'll be it at a short price in the risen star, Nicole Rousseau's, pedigree, pick segment this week, very important. The Camino rail derby is not only on a very tricky all weather surface of the Topeka Golden Gate fields. But also at a demanding nine furlong distance. She gives you the scoop on which pedigrees to look out for. Everyone Nicole Russo coming to you out of the gate. We're going to take a look today at the fields to the alchemy. No reality at Golden Gate, which actually offers winner and automated birth in the Preakness as well as ten qualifying points toward the Kentucky Derby a mixed bag in this field as you three year old most of them stretching out on a synthetic turf it so a surface changed or some of them. But there were cut agrees in records. And here that immediately jumped up h to me eagle song is a winner on synthetic and Ireland. He's making his third start in the US. He was most recently second in allowance optional event it's been Nita and finishing third. There was another well-bred horse in the field weekly. Call by will take charge out of grade one turf winter summer parade eagle song from the first craft of the debt. Daddy, son. No name never was Europe's breakout. Freshman sire. Dear no, ever the sire of sick takes winners, including group. One winner. Tons Beveren at group to win our land fourth. I'm excited more of them in in the US and excited to see what they do stretching out. No never did his best work at shorter distances. But death Atty, obviously your route four and they perform unbel- services, Bob. Bob Baffert sends out kingly a debut winner who is in second left out in allowance off. No one place extra hope now kingly maybe the best bred horse in the steel by happened. Just whistle. Dixie making him a full brother to grade to winter Heyman and a half Breeders Cup juvenile winner. New Year's day distance. No problem, but the female family is pure dirt. So it's curious to see him in this spot. Kampe has sired runners like champion stardom bound in Hansen who could certainly run on synthetic and turf horses. Like, Greg one winter captured flies also when I looked at me Heyman. Who is now a young stallion Shad while last fall something about the shape of his foot and his way of moving made me think that he can go on your turf runners. It's just a feeling so who knows kingly obviously has some class, and I'll be really curious what he does and Leslie quickly. Royal insider read by Airdrie now running through Google thin. He's still a made in after four starts three of those on coming off a Welby behind well regarded, no low contest, oh and Omaha beach on the dirt he's by divine park, who's best runners champion turf mare lady Eli, and it's damn is half to an English stakes winner, the alchemy no real one of four sparring races toward the Kentucky Derby this holiday weekend. The risen star and Saturday fairgrounds offers the winner fifty points the highest on Sundays smelt but race in Japan's road to the theories and the south west on Monday at Oaklawn authors, winter ten points where to get closer look at all of the weekend's action here on out of the gates, and we'll bring you more after this break.

We're looking for big value met. You've got big speed. Yeah. Big speed and big price. Twenty one in the morning line. This is a race. I found really difficult. I think the favorite might be somewhere in that four to one nine to two range. I'm going to the far outside number fourteen in here long. May you run the thing with this horse? Like, you alluded to Dan, he's got speed. And I think there's a real scenario if he's not outright on the lead. He is pushing the pace let's go to most recent run. This was at Penn national against inferior company. He's out there on the front end. This is absolutely hands. And heels he buries the field earns a ninety eight Byron a one twenty six time form US rating. Now, admittedly, those figs based on what these other have come back to do figs might be a little bit on the inflated side. But even if you take two or three points off of each of them this this fits in here. It's not like he's totally overmatched from a class standpoint. Perhaps this is a little bit of a test. But from a number standpoint, he's not that far off. And again, I think he's gonna be forward the place. Mets got the big speed Mike you've got the horse coming to this race in one of the sharpest forms. We're going to see on the page. That's the two homerun maker and boys. One three in a row and very impressively. Last time has gotten really good for Jeremiah angle hard. Last three starts all over this track. He's won all three of them the margins of victory are not big. But he's been much the best all three of those wins. Then includes the last one, this is the fireplug states. We're look at now. And yes, this is a race where he sat right in behind the lead the entire way, you can see him there in the blue soaks. He's got a chance if he sits out and there he's going to get through on the inside. But his writers not gonna play that game is going angle them to the outside or as they approach the eighth pole. And he's just going to close this feel down under strong handling. This is not a horse who was going all in to run this field. This is a very impressive effort. And I think most importantly for this race. He finally got a figure this time and ninety six buyer for that win that's going to put him right in the mix if he can run it back, and I think it's a trip like one he got last time sitting in behind the speeds, he could be dangerous in the land. So that's one of the speeds, you've got one of the shore is I've got the horse with up side number nine. It's good to be us a very lightly. Raced four-year-old he has only started four times in his career. He's got a big pedigree. He's by tap. It had a great hot who won. Both the raven run in the Santamaria a very talented runner in her own, right. It's good to be us was away for a long time returned to the races. Oh about a seven month layoff at parks on June January the eighth and let's take a look at that race right now. It's good to be us. You know, had to go for the front head to deal with horses early this on the out. Outside is the stakes placed runner he's going to put that horse away. Now, the horse on the white blinkers is going to try to make run. It's good to be us. As eventually gonna fend him off. We're down on the rail is running. It's could be us. It's going to fend him off. This is a good effort going seven furlongs office seven-month layoff here into ninety Beyer speed figure it's a little bit light compared with some of the others in this race. But I believe second off the layoff making his second start as a four year old. This was can move forward. And I'm not convinced. He's a need the lead type. Maybe he can sit just off the pace fifteen to one on the morning line for Frankie Pennington. It's good to be us. The number nine in the General, George let's move out west L Camino rail derby Kentucky, Derby points qualifying race. Let's throw up the field for the El Camino Ray, Al derby, one hundred grand or going nine furlongs on the Topeka surface at Golden Gate fields. Carded his race. Number seven for expanded stakes previews, visit video duck DR F dot com or the daily racing form YouTube channel morning line favorite in this race met is kingly no surprise the horses trained by Bob Baffert. He's got a big pedigree. He looked good winning his career debut. I have no idea if he wants to synthetic surface or not no, I don't think anybody does to be honest, if yes Baffert, I don't think he'd be able to give you a definitive answer. We're let's just throw right into his most recent run. This is the first time against winners, and you're going to see him between horses and those green silks just watch. Ladies the change leads and watch them looking out at the grandstand. To me. These are all things that make me believe that you know, what maybe this is a little bit too much too soon. Now you factor in additional distance out to a mile and an eighth I think he finishes second in this race just on talent alone. But again is this a little bit too much too soon. The other thing to throw out their baths. At Golden Gate over the past five years, really small sample size. But he's over five and four of the losses came at odds of two to one or less kingly kind of if he wins all tip my cap and say well done. I don't wanna of I agree with you damn was multiple graded stakes winner on this. A full brother Mohammad who was a door horse half brother to New Year's day who on the Breeder's Cup juvenile in his debut after competing in his first couple of starts on a synthetic surface. Mike, you want a horse that is experienced Golden Gate experienced on a synthetic surface. And this was just look good against inferior competition. Yeah. Those are all the things that I saw that. I don't want the Baffert horses. Just like you guys said, and I just want the other seeming seemingly logical. Another twist fade is number four and this race. We're gonna look at the replay of his most recent win. This is the one that makes it two for two on synthetic for this over this track. He's going to beat a couple of the same as he's running back against today. And he just wins this race very easily. Both of his starts so far over this track. He's looked just like this. He has good speed. He gets out to the front and. He does not stop running through the stretch. I like the way he's finished both times you're gonna take more distance here. And obviously the water's good a little deeper. But that's as it should be. This deserves a chance in this race. And I like both wins Madison. We talked about in the stakes preview your top selection in this racist been competing on turf in North America. But has races overseas on a synthetic surface. That makes us think this might be the spot. Yeah. It makes me think that eagle song plan all along for his connections, Glatt and company that this may have been situation that they've been waiting for. They got him over here. I start six and a half down the hill. And most recently, we can take a look at this. This is to American debut anyway on grass you see them tip out in those red silk. He's never going to actually get there. He's going to finish second by about a length quarter. But I like the way that he's finishing and Dan you alluded to overseas. That's he's two for three hundred synthetic. He's for seven this far on grass. He's a son unknown. Never. So I understand maybe a mile and an eighth there's going to be pushing it form, but I did like the way that he leveled off and finish there. And I think he should be every bit of that. Five to one morning line. Give him a look in here. I agree with Mike. I'm going to go with the four. Another twist fate. I want them to use this horses. Good natural speed to try to get to the front going into the first turn. He's a son of scat. Daddy, he sold for a lot of money at public auction, and he was made into mile and a sixteenth. I'm hoping he can get the mile in stretching out against better horses. But I liked the way he opened up willingly on that field on the turn last time out. I think the source has some gears. Another twist to fade second choice on the morning line at five to two as play the day. He has a daily double at Santa Anita. David our go, no time for the US previews the risen star. Everybody JK's play of the day back from Las Vegas back from the age see back with you guys hoping to give you a little winning ticket here on a daily double. At Santa Anita on Saturday starting race eighth and eight down the hill turf turf, six and a half turf sprint down the hill. The weather's been a little bit dicey in California the last few weeks. It's been pouring rain today. Not sure what the weather's going to be like the next few days. But I would imagine that was dry weather. They'll be able to keep this race down the hill in the eighth race on the grass I'm gonna use three horses in this race. I'm going to use compelled before horse of Bill or bay seven and painting corners, the nine compelled as affiliate that I've always thought really excelled down the hill. She has down the hill in the past the last race that she try to run off the layoff was taking off of the off of the grasp. I think getting that race under her belt and showing up in this spot. Should give her a much better opportunity. Obviously billboard bay doesn't really need an introduction. Been very dangerous down the hill. Also, dangerous and other distances. I think that shows a lot of of her talent and ability she'll be extremely tough. And here. They're painting corners one that did I pointed out as the summers winning going five turf sprinting down mar but that also winning at six and a half down the hill shows a ton of versatility. I think this Philly could be tough and could be a little bit of a price billboard baiting. A lot of the attention. And I think compelled could also offer a little bit of values. So I'll use those three horses and the first leg of my daily double. And then the last leg will be the great to Santa Monica. I'm going to be ice cold here and tomorrow, freedom -ffiliated mayor spread favorite obviously got a little bit of a trip there came back and ran well aquit up and off of a little bit of a break is back back again. I think she's going to be extremely dangerous thought dream trees performance. Last time was was not very good. And and I'm worried there, maybe she's is not the same horse that she wants wasn't the past. Before some setbacks. She's had cell court was one that was coming into the Philly. Amir sprint last year with a little bit of attention based on her performances that she's had throughout the year. The undefeated record was obviously something that was catching people's attention. Paradise would also should take some money with name recognition making the barn. Switch from Richard Mandella. Now to John sheriff's all I need is Marlies freedom in here. She's the three horse. We'll see you next week. Everyone. I'm David going. But this week's time for me my spotlight, I'm going to be taking a look at the major reputation place on Saturday. It's the grade to risen star the fairgrounds the last race on a twelve race carbon. It's drawn of full field of fourteen horses actually fifteen entered for the race with one stuck on the also eligible list. He's going to dry, and it's the number thirteen kingly did not ship for this race. So he will be scratched. We'll take a look at the time from pace projector right off the bat because unsurprisingly given the large field. We are predicting fast pace to develop with the number seven horse Manua who set the pace in the Lecompte last time out he will be on the early lead and you'll notice right away. The number thirteen kingly who's not going to participate as second in the pace projector. I don't think that that fast paced rating is really going to change though. Because what number fifteen gonna draws into the race? He'll be sitting second just given these early pace ratings. He's going to slot into that position right in behind. Manny wa so I don't think that pays characterization is going to change at all. And that could. Really hurt the horses that are going to be towards the front of the pack, including the likely favorite bore of will it'll help horses like hog creek hustle who was against the patient will accomplice time as well as a horse like country houses going to be able to price in this race looking at the favorite for this race war of will. He got outside postition. He's in one slot and probably postition number thirteen if there are no other scratches, and he is just way the horse to be off his triumphant will accomplice time here into one ten time speed figure which is respectable for this group. It's not the highest in the race. But it certainly makes them one of the main contenders. And just given the visual impression of how did that last time? He really looked like he had no trouble handling the distance. The extra few yards are going to be any issue for him. I think the real concern with will is just the pace because you look at the race the pace ratings for his last race. And that first quarter mile rating is colored coded blue indicating that they were not going, very, fast paced. It was really on the slow side. So the fact that he was able to get that trip up close to the pace racing. Clear that really benefited him the cons, and he was able to take the race over at the top of the stretch closers just had a really difficult time in that race. I mean overshoes really excels at sprint distances Manua held on for third. And I think creek cusses rallied up to be second might have run a better race than it seems because he was against the pace that day and he had to rally wide into the race war of will. I think he's a horse, but some real talent and even potential to get better because he's brung well both of his starts. He's really bred to run all Dan, the damn side his damaged by Salvors wells. She has produced another runner tactics who won marathon races going beyond a mile and a half, even as far as my own three quarters, so war of wills, of course to follow along this Turbie trail, but just a short price in such a big field, given that means a trip to work out. I'm somewhat against him in this race, though. I think you have to use them defensively if you're playing, exotics or multi-race waiters. Looking at hog crustal with second behind will last time out in the Lecomte. Like, I was saying he was against the pace that. Dinah, actually ran quite weld rally for second. He had to make a wide run in the stretch and was passing horses. Really the only passing in the lane. I was concerned going into that race that might just be a closing sprinter because he had been so affective in that race of Churchill Downs back into member tenth when he closed impressively given getting a fast paced to run into. He wasn't quite as impressive next about the Sugar Bowl when the paste did not develop going six furlongs. But maybe it was just wrong about him. Maybe the mile on the sixteenth is totally fine for him. Because he proved that he had no trouble closing the gap last time. And I think he's a contender in this race. I I and we'll see what kind of pricey as I think you might come down a little bit off that eight to one, but he is horse that I would definitely use play any kind of exotic wagers horse that might kind of get forgotten and lost in the shuffle. This risen star is the number three Mr. money. He was going to be one of the main contenders in the lacob last time, but was scratched out of that race trainer will bread. Calhoun was saying that he spiked slight favorite going into the race. And they just as a precaution. Took him out and trained up to this risen star to make his debut. He's reportedly been trading pretty well. He ran that racing. Breeders Cup juvenile last time he was beaten a long way by game winner. And they were just taking a shoddy off over forty to one. But I mean, it was a respectable effort at least repeated or actually slightly improved on the speed figure that earned it his impressive maiden triumph the time before that Churchill Downs. I think he's a horse that is really improving at distance and Hugh might just kind of get lost in the shuffle. Here's I was saying I mean, he's twelve hundred in the morning line. I think that's pretty generous price if the ends up going off that high, and he's course that I would definitely use just giving some reservations about the layoff. I'm not going to pick him on top the horse that I'm making my topic. And this racist the number nine country house, we've showed that pace project initially that's predicting a fast pace. And I think he's the horse that is really going to benefit from the situation. He's just a one run closer. And we saw that last time. I know the speed your came back pre slow that Gulfstream race. But it's one of these races that you need to watch. I'm not a big advocate of saying that horses were visually. Impressive can run a lot faster. But. This is a case where this horse would run a lot faster given different circumstances given a faster pace given a cleaner break because coming out of the gate this source just broke behind the field. I don't really know. What happened? It's hard to see culturing because he's kind of out of the camera shot when they're breaking almost up the clubhouse turn in these Milena sixteenth races. But he ought he left behind the field. And you see those blue color coded pace figures. He was totally against it front page situation. And he made this wide run into the race drew off so impressively in the lay, and if you look at track as vigorously actually ran his final five sixteenths of a mile in under thirty seconds that really bodes well for horses, but are stretching out and distance and it bodes well for horses that are likely to get fast paces in the future. You see time formulas late pace rating of one of four that is the highest in the field and wanna pay attention when predict predicting fast pace who has the highest late pace rating because they're the forces that are most likely to take advantage of pay situations, and that is country house just going to starts back here in that massive one fourteen time from US speed figure. For his runner up. Finish behind Kentucky wildcat. It's too bad Kentucky Wildcats on the sidelines, but he really validated that figure when he ran that really strong second place finish in the same F Davis last weekend. So I think country how certainly stacks up against this from a class perspective. And for me, I think it's a pretty good sign. The Bill Maher is moving right up into grade stakes company that made it when it shows a lot of confidence for a trainer who usually takes time with like this. So I see twenty two one morning line. I don't think we're going to get that price. There's been a lot of buzz and hype around this horse. I'm not going to be shocked. If he goes off at odds that are single digits in this race, even probably as low as something like six or eight to one, but to me that's fair enough because I think he's one of the most talented members of this field, and if he can handle the step up in class off made in a maiden race. I think he's likely to have a big impact on this race. So my pin number nine country house in the risen star on Saturday at the fairgrounds doubts ended back to the studio. Time for our best bet segment here on out of the gate might be your you love it. When a plan comes together one week, a horse watch the next week of best bet. Yeah. Just feels like five minutes ago to Grace's was horse to watch. And now she's right back thirteen days later, I start we're going to put the replay. If there's not a lot to see here. This is a filly who made her debut. Sprinting you can see you at the back of the pack here along the rail just got out run early. You see his right or seven pound bug writers, not really asking for too much just letting sort of find your way early in this race. She will run a little bit through the stretch. And then she will Gallup out past this entire field at the end. And I really think that's the book on this source. She's affiliate who I think wants to go longer and she returns for a second career start stretched out to a mile. She's by lemon drop kid. She has a half sister to Dr vs. Magic to RAFI treasure and to organize all three of them. New York bred stakes winners routing on wants more distance. She gets it on Saturday. I'm hoping she appreciates the stretch out. Matt you like a horse. That's one about seventy. Racism a row. Yes. She's on a bit of a role right now. The Barbara fritzy on Saturday laurel three number nine two here late night powwow. This is a West Virginia bread that she's only half length away from being undefeated through eleven lifetime star. She's a perfect two for two at laurel park. We're going to go back to the most recent run, admittedly. This is a short field for horses into stakes race. This is a sensually paid workout though, she absolutely pounds this field. And I like the fact that she doesn't have to have the lead. She's got a little bit of versatility. She doesn't good things to route or career. Whether it is on the lead. Whether it's coming from just off of it and initially when I looked at her I thought, well, maybe she's more of you know, she she mostly races at Charlestown. There's something about the bullring that she just takes to it. You look at this race again, admittedly against inferior foes, you're going to get an acid test on Saturday. But I love the way that she finishes here, basically hands and heels the rider shows the stick a couple of times she goes off on her own accord. I think this is an impressive performance. And maybe you do get every bit of the seven to two because it's very wide open race. It is very wide open race. And we got the old dueling best bets. Out of the gate. You put barren expanse away pretty easily on the turn and route to that impressive victory. Going to be a little bit of a different story. Trying to finish off miss locus point the defending champion and the Barbara Ritchie and she got back to winning raise last time out at parks on New Year's day. Let's go back to that race right now. Maybe this mayor needs a little bit of a confidence boost she dropped in class. She was able to press the pace on the outside took over in the stretch and kept right on going to win. Now. Your best bet beat miss locust point, miss points to starts ago, but miss locus point was making her first star of a long lay-off that day. I think John services got mislocate point ready to go. I think she's going to go to the front and try to make it two in a row. I believe she's six to one on the morning line in the Barbara Fritsch.

"Hey Babe what's up. What's the difference between California Mexican food in Texas Mexican food? We are not going to get a divorce in the first episode of Our podcast. Thirty seconds is it that case though is the best part of Mexican food fucking. Do you consider Cuba to be the best. Hi Jeremy where the accident prone travelers behind practical on your less and we're here to dish out. Travel tips tricks. Useful Trivia. Useless Trivia mildly Lee entertaining anecdotes. And everything else you need to void making all of our terrible terrible terrible terrible terrible mistakes and we make a lot of mistakes today. We're going to be talking about one of our favorite cities San Francisco city by the bay. And this is because I mean we we kinda live. Here I've lived here for for like twelve years now. Jesus Christ are eleven years old. Eleven years I've lived here for like eight years but when I say here I actually live in Oakland which is outside citing Francisco. And we're not going to talk about it because although we love it it's not San Francisco we're GonNa be talking about SF. I've actually never lived in San Francisco I have. I lived there for about five five years when I moved here for College I was a bright eyed bushy tailed kid from a small coastal town and I took to the city like like a elephant conceals a water buck wife. I just WanNa read. Your origin story is now it was just a lot of messy nights in college. Basically what it was. You know what I think. I've seen that one I think. Did Amy Schumer starring that. Yeah actually that was my trainwreck. That was my life store. Anyway we're going to be talking about San Francisco. We're going to be giving you some actual information random fun tidbits Jeremy's local opinions about stuff and some stories about one very long story. That's very near and dear to us like spoilers. No it's not spoilers. It's like foreshadowing spoilers. Spoilers all right well. Let's jump into some weird stuff about San Francisco because people come here because it's weird it's the weirdest place. Like San Francisco is the epitome of weirdness one of my favorite favorite things. And you're gonNA actually notice this throughout the episode. We refuse to call it anything other than San Francisco or SF or the city. Those are the three acceptable notable things that you can call San Francisco no Frisco no San Fran like our ears start to bleed a little bit everybody here in San Francisco. We're very polite rate. But if we hear you calling it Frisco while we walk down the street will be very upset. And we'll probably like passive aggressively. tweet something about it. It don't do it. I goes acceptable. -ceptable twice if you're ordering a Frisco Mel from steak 'n shake which they don't even have here or maybe they do. Actually I forget. Or if you're in talking about Frisco Texas now neither of which of light is his inferences correct. So don't do it. The other thing is that we have personified are fog. That's rate what's our Fox name. Karl he has a twitter account. You guys can go follow him. Carl the fog the fog and we really gross thing where like will travel to another city and it'll just like beyond normal foggy day and we'll be like oh who curl you fold is here to home stood on Mo thank thank you. Let me just say that. That's only thing nobody else does that. Everybody does that. Everybody named Leo Garcia. NACHO everybody does that there's also a random herd of Bison I sent in Golden Gate Park one of my favorite weird facto AIDS Golden Gate. Park is also an amazing park that we have in the city. It's bigger than central park is out to flex on on you. But one of my top. Five must do's foreshadowing to use your word and talk about that later but yeah you can find the Bison there somewhere in Golden Gate Park. I've only found on them. Once they got a lot of lander roam around in they. Don't they're real easy to find about thereby chain of lakes drive okay anyway. There's also a lot of micro micro climates each neighborhood in San Francisco has its own personality and its own weather which is like when I say neighborhoods. We're not talking like you drive for five minutes and you get to like a different neighborhood neighborhood. It's like literally across the street like you can stand on one. St and be looking at Chinatown and behind you is little Italy and they can be completely different rant in every way. It's the weirdest thing. Yeah you'll walk you'll get off of translator out of your car and it'll be like super hot and then you'll be like oh I thought San Francisco's cold and you'll walk two you block and all of a sudden you're in a completely different world and you're freezing and this is why everybody tells you to wear layers which like you know we say where layers and that's just you're like. Oh put on a jacket doc it. That's not what we mean. What we mean is like one minute you're going to be ninety degrees and melting and then it's GonNa be six PM and you're going to be standing in the exact same spot and suddenly you're going to be freezing to death and if you try go to the beach you will freeze and it is horrible? I wish we're at the beach right now. It's really hot in here. It is extremely hot in here. Another thing that kind of drives me nuts honestly and I want to categorize crazy when this everyone and everything and San Francisco is like at least an hour behind constantly. Everything is super flaky. And everybody's just just like totally okay with it and it tries me fricken nuts. Let's California's a whole actually. It's especially bad in San Francisco like you're not really considered late until your over over two hours late and that includes parties like we have a habit now we we have a party. We tell all our friends to arrive two hours earlier than we actually think they're gonNA show up. Do you ever have. I've gotten a lot more responsible so can stop that listening now. Our friends are great at this point. Because I think we've cut out all those super flaky. The ones but like okay. Do you remember like when my sister came to visit. And they live on the East Coast and we had dinner reservations which is unusual because in San Francisco. That's usually just not a thing because we like to be really busy and elitist but we had dinner reservations and we were trying to get there at the right time and a series of late events jusque ask kept occurring like the bar was. The muny was late. The trolley was late everything was late and their heads were exploding and we were just like chill. This is fine. We're not and then we showed up and they were like it's chill. It's only six thirty or not even late. Taking the trolley. Nobody takes control. It was a touristy thing. It's nice you know this. The whole episode is literally just as talking about cool things to do visiting San Francisco. Right I know so speaking of things that like people have to do when they come here like some touristy some not what are your our top five things that you would recommend visitors do so okay. My number one thing is something that you won't find online we haven't even written about it. It's called Jericho it's this. It's like super cool spy game by a company called Fox Hound. Basically it's laser tag but the city of San Francisco is like your laser tag like floor level. Well I don't know if that's called you play laser tag you've got like this cool. Like Messenger bag with a gun inside and you've got like a mission and all your friends teams and you have to fight with them to like run to like vim bark. Heroin like steal something from seal or whatever and then like shoot your friends at you know the middle of Union Square and then like duck and roll and like find this guy. That's like wearing a mustache. It's so much fun. It's the most fun I've ever had in San Francisco. It's a laser tag spy walking tour. All right well I guess you could have described it much better than I could better. Yeah they have all these different missions like they have nighttime ones. They had daytime wines. I haven't actually done all of them but I've done a lot. We did one like Bride Party versus Groom Party and I kicked U. S.. Okay let me just say what happened. Lee is really clumsy. Wow and we were in. We were in north beach which is literally literally little Italy and it's super hilly and we were running around these hills duck and through strip clubs. Because that's what little Italy's known for and we got an shootout in in front of a strip club and then leaves around the corner and she's just screaming and like fake crying out fake cry and cussing feelings as she was like. I rolled my ankle angel. And you guys just kept playing and we were like Oh shit. Let's put a hold on. This really quickly is actually hurt. And I didn't want it to be like super hurt for the wedding and friends friends. My friends who are all like my friends are all really good at everything. Like I've got one best friend WHO's a marathon runner one best friend who's like a circus performer. And they're just like doing flips and shit off of buildings just like running around. Yeah they had to get across town in like ten minutes before the time ran out and then my brother-in-law and I are like tending the Lia and it turns out that she was like spinning a yarn. The whole time. That's okay. I was spinning a yarn. I actually did roll angle. It actually did hurt. I had a feeling I may have played it up for the sake of drama but it was valid. I didn't lie to you or was number two number two actually. This is something that we stuck into our wedding in gas like little gift baskets. It's our Self Guided San Francisco Walking tour so Jeremy came up with this whole route. Where you start at the embark aero you go all the way past the seals pasture thirty nine all the way up to geared Elliot Square? You go through quite tower through all that area up there. It's absolutely beautiful. And then you take back down because I think it's really fine. And we actually had the entire San Francisco walking tour on our blog. If you google like anything's Self Guided San Francisco walking toward anything like that. You'll find a link to it in this podcast description. But it's really fun. It's hey it's like six miles. It takes like two and a half hours. And it's a great way to see San Francisco though free on your own two feet and you get to meet some seals which is the best thing not even halfway through episode one and we've already got our first plug you all right to be there. We also mentioned seals like four times so seals are wedding. There's GonNa be more plugs though because we have a lot of content about San Francisco. It's going okay my nightlife at the CAL Academy of Sciences. So we have this Awesome Science Museum in Golden Gate Park so you have to like navigate past like her device in verse but they do this thing called nightlife every Thursday night. And it's like the whole Science Museum turns into like doc and kind of like a nightclub like it's twenty one and up every week has a theme and it's all like themed around some cool Scienc- thing the food is themed drinks are themed. There's all these different exhibits on all different floors and you get to access the entire museum and also do this cool nightclub thing For like half the price of a regular admission and you don't have to deal with kids which kids but not when I'm drunk at a nightclub that also science museum you know they're also all over L. Academy during the day so it's nice when the kids aren't there. It's really fine so if you're here on a Thursday night definitely check out my next thing this goes with your your like amy. Schumer messy beam karaoke at butter. So butter is a white white trash themed bar which we love. And I'm allowed to say away trash because I'm here in Kentucky in you're allowed to say white trash because I was born Bakersville. Yes I was going to say it so basically really every Sunday night. Butter does Kariuki. So you can get like you're white trash themed drinks which talk about later and you're white trash themed food think like you know deep fried twinkies and like Ravioli out of a can and sing Karaoke and like you might be picturing like some down home you know drunk Mascaro key but this is like this is like we're series Carrio years like come to play this highbrow hot Mascara. There's actually like a competitive like Karaoke teams Francisco this up. It's one guy I. It has a competitive shirt I don. I can't vouch for this that it's an actual league. But he does. We did see a shirt one time. So you like nine and basically you need one song and you can having to have practiced your song. Because you're only going to get the thing. The song and I know that sounds less fun. But it's way more fun because you feel like a rockstar. And we'd love Karaoke butter so much that we actually hire the Karaoke Dj EJ to do our wedding reception. 'cause we had karaoke wedding reception and it was awesome. Yeah he's also got like really cool selection of of songs that you you've definitely heard these songs things whether they were in like video games or like obscure references deep you goes. He's got a deep bench. Yeah but there's also a caveat if you're going to sing Bohemian Immune rhapsody or don't stop believe in you have to pay five dollars. Yeah the Katie days name is Roger Niner. We love him he also does the same. Where like if you're sucking on your song? He will jump. I've been an sing with you. And he he has the voice of an angel. It's not just if you're sucking on it if he's also into the Song Oh yeah and they'll harmonize with you. You don't have a partner. He'll be your duet partner. It's it's actually so fun and you'll probably see us there if you go because we go a lot. I usually do under pressure with him. That's pretty mercury. Yeah I usually do Britney spears. It's still a show. I also do Johnny Cash. It's easy go to. We should probably move to the next auto okay so my next one is exploring golden gate park which talked about. We talked about Cal Academy we talked about the Bison. It's huge Golden Gate Park. We already said it's bigger than Central Park. It's it stretches all the way from Like the Haight Ashbury neighborhood which you've probably heard of because hippies to the ocean is enormous and you could just spend all day walking through it biking through it like you'll probably come come across lake some cool hippies that have been there since the sixties you'll probably come across like random other museums the museum there which is really awesome and it's just gorgeous. There's a beautiful Japanese garden in the middle of their and you just feel like you stepped into Japan. There's just so much to do in there. You could spend days just getting lost in there and then while you're on that side of the city my other one that I really love in that area is called the batteries to bluffs trail so this is one of my favorite places to view the Golden Gate Bridge. Because you've always he's got to look at it right like you can't come to San Francisco and not take a bunch of bridge southeast but if you go to like the touristy bridge spot there's just a bunch of tourists and a parking lot and it's just like not the best so head up the road a little bit. And you'RE GONNA go into the presidio which is like this beautiful national not national. It's a state park but anyway it's just like park area around the Golden Gate Bridge and and there's this trail that runs from these old historic batteries. All the way down to the ocean and at the bottom of the ocean when you get to the end of the trail is a nude beach which is just a fun little San Francisco experience. You know you can't really you can't say you've been a San Francisco if you didn't see some deck it's not directly at the bottom of the stairs. You gotta you gotTa wonder around the bottom bottom of the stairs and five feet. I believe this is also where burning man was started right. Yeah Yeah so But that's definitely the best place to see the Golden Gate Bridge and it's just a beautiful. It's like one mile trail and it's just it's lovely highly. Recommend what are your favorite. Must Do's so mine are a few minor pretty seasonal the first one which okay. I'm way too old to party anymore. I got that all out in the twenty s but I will say that one of the best parties by far is Beta breakers which happens in the spring and it's a marathon that starts at the bay so on the eastern side of the city and it goes goes down market street and down Hayes all the way over to the ocean on the other side and just making this sound exhausting. It's a marathon but that's not at all it matters. No that's like that's like like what it is on the surface but really what it is is everybody follows the marathon runners and just parties through the city. Everyone gets in crazy costumes costumes and everybody tries to hide alcohol because like officially you can't have alcohol but everyone is drunk and UC super interesting costumes. And it's all like these group costumes. Our favorite one was a group dressed as the Jurassic Park ride. They even had a tyrannosaurus rags and he would like come pop up and they would all be like Has a little yellow strap. said they would like get into order. It was super cute. I just love how you're doing. Like rollercoaster moves right now which nobody nobody can see. Because it's a podcast. While I was doing rollercoaster moves anyway. It's a huge part of. There's so many like house parties that you pass along the route to. It's just so much fun. My first week week that I was in San Francisco was Beta breakers and I live on the route and my roommates just woke me up with a pin gwyn costume a shot and a PBR. And he was like it's it's Beta breakers will explain later. Don't let anyone use our bathroom which you did not follow. No I did follow it but the year before they didn't they let one person in the bathroom and then they got finished getting ready and they walked out and there was like a line of twenty people in the living room. Those informative dead. Yeah but it's Super Fun Even if you're not a big drinker last time we were there we were sober and we still had a lot of fun. You do have to be comfortable with naked people because like we said it is legal here in nudity is just part of Beta breakers and and you just you gotta learn to live with that. You're in San Francisco. We usually start like a bet that is boobs buts or Dick's game which twins we're GonNa see the most of and we keep a running tally which I've realized that's always win. It covers their but but they're like oh but frying fall hanging out now but they're always out it's always win running out scalise. That's always my other must do. My other recommendation is a picnic and Dolores Park fellow. I'm hoping we cut that out now. We're not cutting it out. Dolores Park is a park between the mission and the Castro throw. It is one of the most beautiful views and it's always got the best weather and it's real easy to spot because everyone is going. They're not even. I'm just on a weekend weekdays two. It's always filled with people drinking becoming like nobody in San Francisco has job. Apparently everyone brings their dogs. Everyone ruined brings like some elaborate game. I remember seeing giant beer pong where they had like the rubbermaid trash cans instead of Red Solo Cup. That's amazing and they use a beach ball. I I may actually be able to do that. I'm pretty good at that. There's also a Guy Michael also known as the room coconut guy. He's got long dreads and he just walks around with bag of Michetti and a cooler and he'll just pull a coconut out and offer you like a coconut and then he'll hack it up and then pour rum and and if you want. There's the girl with the Swiss Miss Outfit with edibles. Yeah she's got edibles of all kinds like and they're all serial based so it's like I really like fruit. I really like APPLEJACK applejack so I wanted to have an apple. Jacks edible and no like weed is legal in California but this has been going on since longtime ago way before it was actually legal legal. But they're still they're like they don't care anytime somebody and Dolores Park walks up and like offers you something just you know by it. It's probably fine but also assume it's got weeded. There's even an app you can find your friends in Dolores. Park dislike most San Francisco APP that I've ever heard of this is called Dullsville another thing that I always say to do and again this is only half the year but you have to go to a giants game Oracle Park is beautiful eighteen. At and T.. Sorry I know it used to be used to be packed bill. No that's too old. Yeah so it's one of the most actually is the most beautiful park in the country. Ballpark I mean. Is that just like you saying that or no. That was the Major League Baseball Association. Okay they have a ton of great food. Because because it's San Francisco. We have the best food. Don't add me but got really good. Food are like garlic. Fries are seem so good. Our team used to be good. Wow how I don't think a lot to be fan if you say that no years. That hasn't been even years have been the case since two thousand fourteen go is all right. I I live in Oakland all right. There's also really good drink. Drink options Gear Deli has like salted caramel hot chocolate thousand. That was what I was GONNA say him. Go see a game but it does get freezing if it's a night game or blazing hot if it's a day game. Yeah because there's a lot of sun exposure and you also get really like moist like if you're still at the park nine pm. No it's true like moist because the fog rolls in the fog rolls in and you you just realize you're just soaking wet. Even though it's not raining in theory and then Siegel start like circling overhead. And you just Kinda round like ten. PM You just. I just feel like you're in like the birds you got out of there. If you've ever been no baseball game you know that around the seven and seventh innings. Stretch your thinking. Oh they're up by a few points. The game might might turn. But you also know that there's very few dramatic endings to baseball games. So I will say that if you get to that point and you realize the game's GonNa go one way. Just go just go. It's impossible supposed to get on the first train home. You're going to be there. You'RE GONNA be out until midnight. My fourth thing is to see a show now that a few things so it can mean a concert a play it could mean drag show There's tons of news where this is possible. There's a lot more independent places like Bottom of the hill is a smaller caller venue. But it's really famous because a lot of now famous people have played there. The mission has a ton of different venues. Protrero Hill has a lot. The tenderloin has a lot so you can just find like either a small or a large one and most days of the week. There's either GonNa be a concert a drag show or play so the orpheum and The Act Theater have off Broadway shows so we just saw Hamilton there all right. We're not going to talk about that. I didn't hate it I just anyway. We're GONNA just things a lot for putting me on blast on our podcast. Our favorite drag show is coming up next month. We've been seeing it for the last few years. It's it's a buffy. The vampire slayer drags really take a whole season of buffy and they make it into the most amazing epic drag show like there's like special effects initial. Yeah it's ridiculously good like the production quality is like I was blown away my last thing and again. This is seasonal. Because it's usually just hot weather and you have a ton of options here but go to a festival there are music festivals such as hardly strictly Bluegrass side land outside lands exactly but there's also tons of like street fairs like the how Weird Festival kicks off the festival season in April. The Pride Festival is huge. which obviously there's the FOLSOM street festival? which if you're in the city in September Selassie Sunday September so fulsome is the leather festival? We're done kink. Not just like you know cowboys cowboys cowboys. But we're talking about like kink leather. which is awesome? If you're into that is a little jarring if you're just here with your your family and you didn't have that discussion beforehand. Maybe So you just you know just know if you're coming in to check if you're coming during FOLSOM street fair. It's a lot of fun if you are willing to be in that space. And not be judgmental in that space and understand boundaries and consent and all that kind of thing which is very. Ah Very much enforced to their but butter which is right next to folsom. We talked about Carioca butter after folsom street. Fair is a blast. It is next next level wild because fulsome starts like before noon and Karaoke doesn't start until nine thirty pm so yeah people have been getting real messy bring ringer course. Oh yeah so. I mentioned one of the one of the best things that San Francisco has is our food. That's my like eighth. Best thing to do in San Francisco is just like eat just just like eat everything we have the best food here. What would you say is like one of the tops? Okay so you can't come to San Francisco and not have clam chowder bowl like I know it's Cliche but it's Cliche for a reason because it's delicious richest and super filling cozy and it's always like cold and foggy rate so I talked about our Lake Self guided walking tour. That's one of the things along the tour because you pass right by booting bakery like they had like a factory where they make sourdot and they create these little sour dough bread bowls and also like adorable sourdot animals in the shape of turtles which is my favorite and then they put like clam chowder and and it's really good and honestly like I want to tell you it's like the best clam chowder in the world. The bread is pretty good But it's just like one of those classic San Francisco Cisco Things and it is really cozy and it hits the spot every time I grew up and coastal town and so I grew up eating clam chowder in a red bull and I will say that I I still am not tired of San Francisco's Clam Chowder Bible. Yeah it's good for a reason. I have a place in my heart. Very near and dear for Burritos Rita's San Francisco whole heart. I feel your heart is actually just Brito shaped it's the doctor says I need less really unhealthy. So Oh San Francisco really loves their Britos so much in fact that that they will fight you if you like the wrong burrito and talking about yourself. I'll fight you if you say you liked the wrong burrito and now you're you're right it's the San Francisco Bay. There was a national competition for the best Burrito in the country and San Francisco held the two of the four finalists spots. Now there are two that are Mijo. Choose the first one is Tucker Cancun but they have a couple of locations the one in nineteen th and mission is the best one. I can't believe you have a specific location to you. Not so ridiculous. How long have you lived here? I live in Oakland The other one that I I really like is l.. Far Alito on twenty four th in mission but the actual winner of the competition was locked up career all three of them good options. But I do love Doc Kuhn the most okay. You're not going to back. That claim up. We're GONNA have a bunch of angry people on. You're just gonNA leave that there. No those people are going to walk down mission street and have three Burritos and then and then tweet at us saying that I was right. The first one was the best. I would like pictures to go with that when you do that at practical wander. Thank you I'm going to say if you WanNa Burger in San Francisco. Your best bet is super duper. It's not something that we're like super known for but super-duper is definitely other than in and out like a a classic Burger Place to go in San Francisco. I would also had oysters to the list. Oysters or like a local thing. There's a whole bunch of local oyster farms up near point race and we get like really good. Ed like usually about one dollars each oysters and you can get those Swan Depot. They are delicious. Just I know they're kind of like squishy or whatever but like just shoot them they're actually really good. One of my favorite replaces has actually gone through a lot of changes. And it's one of the more boozy places in San Francisco it used to be called Martine and then the restaurant closed and kept open their bakery but now the restaurants back and it's called Tarquin manufactory and we are a second date at Barton special place in our hearts. Yeah that's a really really special place for us because he is our second date and I- scrimped and saved for that date years. I imagine you boy was broke. It was sweet though. He was like sweating when we sat down. He looked at the menu. And I could tell so. I think we like ordered like one. APPETIZER to share. And just like savored it for a while but it was really cute and you paid which was nice it was one of. Are Those all take the salad and a water situation. Yeah and I think we shared the salad and the water. California was in a drought at the time. Another one is you gotta get get dumplings like San Francisco has a really rich history with Asian culture and we have incredible Asian food one of the best places to get soup. Dumplings MS dumpling kitchen which is like Over on the western side of San Francisco around Golden Gate Park. You'll be getting into the foggier areas so bring layers But the soup you've dumplings or like the easiest pillow little fluff balls of soup and they are so good. The next place that I would recommend is called foreign cinema and it is always on like the top OP. Restaurants Have San Francisco. It's been on there for years. It's been one of the best restaurants in San Francisco for a minute. Yes so you sit outside. There's like a little awning and when you eat while there's like a giant projector playing a foreign film and Oh hence the name hence the name we went there once on a SCAVENGER hunt date which we'll talk about later future episode and awesome. Yeah but we were way too should house to enjoy that meal. I remember I remember being being like. This is the best steak I've ever had and I think I might have through it up later and felt really bad about it. It was so good and then the other really good like fancied fancier despite which is still surprisingly affordable if you wanna like ball out but like not like French laundry ball out which was like four hundred dollars a meal? This is more like the thirty dollars. Range is Noga and it's an awesome restaurant. It's definitely fruity and boozy. But like affordable and you can if you sit in the second level you can watch them in the kitchen which is really fine. It's like dinner and a show. Yeah we did that a couple of times except one time. There was a fire in the kitchen. Probably our faults we bring bad luck everywhere we ago we do. That's a theme throughout this podcast. Spoilers spoilers What about drinks like now thirsty? What are your favorite drinks in San Francisco? One of my favorite places to get aid. Drink is ritual coffee but like a coffee drink drink. He takes a coffee drink. The only one that thinks thinks that's funny okay. Whatever they're not all going to land I mean if you WanNa if you WANNA merge coffee handle Whiskey Whiskey drink? There's two cafe yeah. I Love Win Investor Cafe. They were the first restaurant or bar. I guess to introduce Irish coffee in. They say all all of North America but definitely San Francisco and it's like they do the whole thing like the age it and it's really freaking good if you go to like the very back of the restaurant. There's this little room that nobody they ever really knows about with this window. That looks out on the water. Like out on over gearless square. And it's really really pretty. Yeah you can also get your coffee. You can get with whiskey or Cognac in yards or brandy sorta choose what alcohol you want. I also will say you glass right over another opportunity for a completely shameless self-promotion self-promotion which is that. If you Google the best shops in San Francisco you will find our blog on it. We have a guide it was written by a Barista in San Francisco. Shout out to Tom. Yeah Jeremy Actually when we met that was a Barista in San Francisco which is probably why remarried live in that highlife. That's like trophy has been goals for me. He doesn't make me coffee every single morning and brings it to me in bed so so sometimes it's instant much like shame you had when you said that if it's like the sweetest thing they don't let me into coffeeshops good instant though you know ritual has five dollars per packet instant coffee now. Do that's crazy to me. So so since we're facing in twos. My two favorite bars are actually owned by the same company and those are Bourbon and branch and tradition and all of this company's bars are like speak easy themed but sort of a like a different varying levels. Throw prohibition themed let's say and and Bourbon and branch is super speakeasy. You need to you. Need a code word to get inside and the code word decides which room you get into so you can go to the normal all like booths or going to tell you the password or you can or you can go into the library area which is sort of standing room only or you can go into the secret. Detective -tective agency which is where we had that like fancy cocktail class that we took. I didn't even know there was a secret to attack agency inside the bar but it turns out if you dig a how class there you get to go in. The whole bar is hidden so you just walk passing. It doesn't look like anything but then if you take a class here in the detective agency and now I can't not see the detective agency. Yeah now we know. Our eyes have been opened but in tradition is a little bit more like a regular bar. There's no password it's still looks prohibition ask but they do their own casket. So they'll one of my favorites. Is They have a twelve year. Bow More Scotch. That's aged in Pinot noir asked sounded so do she's saying that like I love you but like you did is delicious if we if you just like beer and your life is rolling your eyes listening to us talk about fancy drinks. My favorite favorite place to go for beer is called Golden Gate taproom. They have like. I don't know hundreds of different beers and like all these games and they have like really ridiculous shit like I. I am a beer snob. And I like only enjoy Belgian beer because Belgian ruined us which is a future episode but they have some really good Belgian imports. It's and it's a good time plus Ski Bowl. I mean how can you lose it Skibo. Another good one for leg. More casual night is butter so we talked about butter already. It's real down home. It's real trashy. And they have like the best drinks and they they pour him strong My favorite is called Latchkey T. It's it's long island except for it's made with strawberry soda instead of Coke it's delicious and then you like you like. The Junkyard. Dog Ran the Junkyard Dog. It's Vanilla Stoli Vodka and and root beer. But it's like the good root beer that Thomas Keller whatever it's called And then also like the Cherry bomb. It's Black Cherry. Revolved Co was squirt and it tastes as messy as it sounds. Butter is a is a hot mess. They also do Jello shots and if you order Jello shot they just bring them around for everybody. Which I love you can never knock butter? It's the best sometimes. It's like too much that's just because we're old. Honey that's true I also have to shout out to some tiki rooms lake. Okay so first of all Oakland invented the tiki room. Let's just say it. That was us but San Francisco has some really good good one. So they've got the Tonga Room which is in the FAIRMONT. And we're GONNA talk about the Fairmont more in a minute but it's super cool. They had like a pool in the middle of the room. There's like like a thunderstorm. Every few minutes always live music playing. It's it's a really good time. And then they have smugglers cove so smugglers cove is a cute a little bar in San Francisco. It's kind of tucked away. You have to like find it but they have over seven hundred different types of rum and their menu is organized by like history of Rom. uh-huh so it's like it's like educational like learn things like the history of Jamaican rum in the history of Dominican Rahman like all of the bartenders are like encyclopedias of Ron. And then also you're getting drunk from like a giant bowl of flaming delicious rum drink. It's a great time. It's also a really cool ambience. Because when you walk in you look looks like you're in a pirate ship like there's three bars in the top one. Looks like you have to climb to a crow's nest. Yeah it's really fun so after you get like really drunk and and you had dinner. What are your favorite like treats like? Where would you go get like a little dessert? So I'm a big connoisseur of ice cream. You look so proud of yourself as you said that there's just like a glow about you right now. There's a lot of really good ice cream spots in San Francisco but one that I think is above all is called Humphry. Slocombe can't really go wrong with any of the flavors with Humphrey Slocombe. I prefer secret breakfast. which has like Bourbon Carmel? And cereal Israel on it. Yeah it's it's not my favorite but I like everything else that Humphry slocum and there's one in the ferry building so when you're starting out on your self guided walking tour of San Francisco you can go there. I just put it out there. They had a ended episode with per Shuto Ice Cream on like good eats or something. Yeah Slocombe something famous. We probably have looked that up. speaking of things that are in the ferry building Danny Lyon chocolate. I loved any land chocolate. It's like fancy boozy lake single origin. Chocolate They do bean to bar. And they're like original location is in the mission you can go there and take like tasting sauces In my favorite thing is that they have a bunch of free samples which I absolutely abuse But they're really really good really chocolate. Well you know what we gave them free Promo so now. Donna can pay the rent with exposure. You welcome to any line. I'll send you an invoice breath. One of the stops that I always go to on messy nights especially messy nights in the Castro is hot cookie which is a cookie shop on sixteenth in market. That is famous for their dick shaped cookies. There's also female torsos. Yeah no it's it's like an equal opportunity dirty cookie place but it's not the high. Cookie is like the best cookie of your life. But it's just like a really good time I disagree with you. I think their regular cookies are really good. But you just don't like macaroni and the Knicks are all macaroni. That's true that's true but I always think about like so one time. We were standing in line hockey after a really fun night out in the Castro may have been to see a drag show. It was the I was buffy last year And we're like standing in line nine and this guy who's clearly from Outta town is like looking at this long line of people outside of this tiny little window and he's just looking back and forth. He goes up to look at the cookies. He comes back and you just like starts like shouting and confusion. And he's like is it just because they're shaped like penis in everybody in. That line was just like yes. Yeah that's why that's the whole thank and it's true that's the whole thing. That's enough the really good they also sell merch and that much is just tiny underwear. How many times have we talked about penises and this episode like more more than seals at this point? I think possibly even more than Self Promo truly are winning. The Dick's are winning this time. Okay one last. One is a coconut gun in Chinatown. And I can't tell you a specific place 'cause I always forget and I can never find them but there's like these little one dollar coconut binds in a random in a bakery in Chinatown. Probably all of them and they are delicious. Just really good. Yeah you really can't go wrong with. Chinese bakery treats orders anywhere in Chinatown and have the Fortune Cookie factory there which is really fun to like. Get little broken ones. Do they sell like a giant bag of broken ones for super cheap. I WANNA see. We invented the Fortune Cookie. I think that's true. One of our listeners should let us know we. Just I really just make just make up a giant giant ball statement which actually that leads me to another point though like we invented a lot of shit and we've got like quite a history. Why do you think San Francisco is like such a big deal and like we are a big deal? Let's it's just be honest about it. We're big deal. Why are we such deal? I think San Francisco just brings out a few troops. It's always dreamers and and people on the fringes of society. So I think of that when I think of like the gold rush we came out here because there is inter. There's enterprising zing spirits but there are also already sort of on the fringe. They were already sort of weird. They're like frontiers people and then when we get to like the nineteen hundreds on your skipping over the whole part where like. They showed up with like their enterprising spirits and just pushed out like all of the first Americans who were already living here. Let's just talk about got it. That happened that sucked it absolutely sucked which also I mean. It's it's home to a lot of people who do push out people and without very little little care for somebody else's experienced also the origin. I found out this weekend. That's the origin of how Chinese immigration came to San Francisco that they were actually part of of the The gold rush they came along with the enterpreneurs Some of them were business people. Some of them were helping with business. People's various needs like vegetable growing. I think was one of their major jobs anyway. I literally just learned this all this weekend because we were in Nevada city which is a cute little gold rush town which we won't talk about now But we have this really fascinating history and that was like kind of the beginning of San Francisco as we know it today and I think you still see you. I still see pieces of that in a different form today. I mean anybody who's lived in San Francisco their whole lives or even a few years. You know the big thing that people always say is that you know transportation is changing it and I think that's part of what San Francisco is. Everybody has their San Francisco. There was Eureka San Francisco and turned the century San Francisco and then there was like summer of Love San Francisco and then there was Silicon Valley San Francisco and the constant in. All of those. San Francisco's is that it's is constantly changing. It's constantly whatever's the next big thing and the next like big idea in American culture for good or for bad. It makes huge changes. Well I mean from from some people. It's always for bad for some it's for good. I mean if you go to San Francisco now. We have a really big problem with homelessness the largest population density of homeless per capita. And it's a couple of factors the main ones being that historically homeless were okay here and so cities would just cities like Las Vegas specifically an La. They put their homes on a bus and say go to San Francisco. They have way more resources than we do. And add to that the tech boom right right now is closing up homes and shops to make room for high rises and office spaces and it's putting more families out on out on the street or pushing them out of their neighborhood that they've been in for generations and then adds that that are former air are late mayor. Ed Lee was really problematic and his solutions about homelessness. Yeah I also want to go back just circle back to your point about other cities sending us. They're homeless because they did used to. We used to be able to accommodate for that right like we used to have plenty of space but something you'll notice when you're visiting San Francisco is that quite a lot of our homeless are also experiencing being mental health crises. We have a lot of unmedicated like especially UNMEDICATED. schizophrenics in San Francisco so you'll notice just walking on the streets you'll see somebody like talking to themselves screaming to themselves And it's it's very clear that that's a person who's experiencing homelessness and there's like reasons as for that not only were people released from healthcare institutions. I'm institutions years and years ago and have never been able to get help ever since but when you're talking about like illegal shipping of homeless people up to San Francisco. Most of them were mentally. Ill people who didn't have any kind of resources didn't have have healthcare. Didn't have family to pay for them. They were the people that need the most help. And it's just incredibly cruel that some cities were shown to be to be shipping. People that need mental help To San Francisco so it's really something to keep in. Mind that when you are seeing those people that are having mental health crises. They're more danger to themselves than they are to you. They're they're not out to hurt you. They're not criminals. They're on the streets because they need medication that they can't access and homelessness has been shown to exacerbate mental illnesses says so it's actually very triggering very harmful for them to be homeless to be unstable and another issue that you'll notice while you're visiting San Francisco There's a lot of like bad smells Mel's There's a lot of human waste. It's not pretty I don't want to gloss over it. The reason why is because there's not enough public restrooms in San Francisco and so for for the our homeless neighbors who live here. They don't have a safe place to be. They don't have a safe place to use the restroom and it's it's really. It's it's inhumane honestly and so I really would encourage you while you're visiting have compassion and empathy. Because those are those are people right. There are neighbors San Francisco residents and they don't. We don't have the resources to be able to to help them. In the way that need to be helped and so they are experiencing something much more unpleasant than you are when you have to hold your breath or walk by and be a little bit bothered by them screaming. They are really having they have it a lot worse than you sell. Please show some compassion and empathy for them and you might be thinking. Well if I'm visiting how am my contributing to like the bad side of this. Am I contributing to gentrification by being here. 'cause I'm staying at like an AIRBNB. or which if you're saying in an airbnb maybe maybe depends on where we actually do. Have a guide on where to stay in San Francisco which really does dive into the gentrification issue. We've got a lot of recommendations on like different neighborhoods to stand and different kinds of accommodations that we recommend staying in so that you won't be directly contributing to gentrification but tourism as a whole and this I mean I could go on about this for hours but tourism can really benefit a city and provide creates. Jobs provides a lot of economy. So don't feel like you shouldn't come here. Because we're experiencing extreme extreme gentrification but do so mentally and make sure to educate yourselves about some of the issues that you'll experience while you're here it's a great city to visit. It's a beautiful city. It's a vibrant city. It's a romantic city. Just educate yourself and make sure that you are traveling as responsibly. Yeah which is a weird pivot but she said romantic and I kind of want to talk about our most romantic story in San Francisco is a weird visit so weird pivot. Let's do I don't no how to I don't know how to there's no graceful. There's no graceful way to end that conversation that we just had my favorite San Francisco story is about the time. Well I. It's about when our first dates so we're a few months into dating and we go to this fancy Sushi date in San Francisco and on that date Leah He's got a weird sense of humor and they were what were they. Were getting the tables set up for like the breakfast service or whatever and they had these tiny little jars of jam and mustard. They were really cute. They're Super Q. They were like the size of a thimble. They were really tiny. I don't even know how you were supposed to get all of the jam out of there but Leah thought it'd be funny if we would just steal them so she was like what is huges. Go Up in St Louis Jar of me. Is that when you're laughing and trying to talk. I don't know if I was laughing. I might have just been like all right guy that we've been on three days. Here's what we're going to jail. He was more than three. We're GONNA steal all these jars so anyway I don't want to be a wet blanket. I'll save that for after we're married and I'm like fine. Let's do these jars so one of us like distracts the waitress. We have a whole song and dance and we do like a weird little creep around the table and just swoop if one of the jars. Yeah it was pretty smooth honestly and that was the point in which we descended into a night of pure criminal exploitation. We became mm-hmm like extreme criminals. Guys this is. This is the story about the time we were criminals. Yeah we decided that we were going to steal every every useless thing that we could find everything that like. Nobody would care. Somebody stole it. We were GONNA steal. We rode the elevator down from the restaurant. There was on the third floor and those little floor marking signs of the end of the elevators. One of them was the glue was coming off and so I took it. We stole it. We stole that. It was number three. I should have it in our apartment. Didn't give a fuck. We superstars how that's how intense I am. We were bad. We were so bad we took. It was so dumb stuff. It was like men's when we didn't talk to the person who is handing out the or like a toothpick or I think I grabbed a piece of potpourri counter. We had like this little collection and then I decided to take it up a notch and I was like all right. It's really cool that we're stealing stuff but let's go sneak into stuff. I want to trespass because we were dressed up like really fancy like you're wearing like your fanciest suit formation and the cost twenty dollars and I was wearing like a thrift store address and I was like we're fancy. Now let's go sneak stuff like we belong there so we went to this hotel that we won't say which it is but it has a famous elevator. We're not going to tell you which one it is because we are flying full on going to tell you a bunch of secrets about it that you should not do so. It's got famous elevator which we won't tell you about what we can tell you is that you can take that elevator up to a very cool tower with very cool view Except for you have to have a room key to take the elevator. We snuck behind these fancy old people who clearly we're we're going up to the tower like acted like we also were going up to the tower press the button and I was like. Oh yeah same floor Harambe I. I was like remember Matt Profits Mirror so we went up there and we went through an emergency exit door and it was just started like skulking around the floor like poking stuff and like stealing seeing what we could steal Steal Moist towelettes car O. We did steal a moist. Towel Ed Yeah and yeah so then we've found like this door and we just we were like. Let's open this door because we were being hardened criminals at this point. Let's open the store and Trespass Amore and it was like this really cool like little like fire escape way up in like this. Like top floor of this tower. That looked out over the twinkling lights of San Francisco and it was so romantic. This story is not going to get sexy. There is no knows ex happened but I will say that one of the things people do in this famous elevator. That we won't tell you anything about is they hit the emergency Uh Stop Button and the bang. which we didn't do we do not do that? We are definitely not that cool so we walked the Fairmont and we start we were started wandering around L. I. O.. More stuff. I WANNA take this like I want to apologize to the Fairmont here. We love the FAIRMONT. We have a lot of love for this specific San Francisco. Fairmont hotel is not bill but we definitely bent some rules during our visit to the Fairmont. We definitely may have stolen some blocks of soap. I think link and cements. They had some cute little pill laments and we weren't staying there and we took some this was. This was the only remotely big deal steel that we got actually. Yeah we that the I've pulled a piece off of the off of Chandelier in a conference room. I guarded the door. I guarded the door Jeremy Stolen. He's the chandelier. Look Fairmont hotel. If you want your piece of chandelier shaped like a pinecone back we still have it somewhere in our apartment you can have it back but yes we deal it. We are horrible people so after our thefts were done and we made off with the booty we had like a whole. Oh collection of like random shit. Do we went down to terrorist room and there was an Indian wedding going on and we were just like let's crash this wedding and then and we realized like we shouldn't crash a wedding. That's not okay but it was really fun for the five minutes that we were there before we realized that we were being the rudest people everything smelled so good I just wanted to plow through their buffet and it was like everybody was dancing in lake. It was so much fun we did not plow through their buffet. That was like that was the line. We were like all right. No no further so we went onto the rooftop. It's got this rooftop terrace that looks over the city. Got these big palm trees with lates. It's super for romantic. It was so romantic. We're like gazing out at the twinkling lights of San Francisco while the fog rolled in and this was like our third date. There's an our third day. Why do you keep saying that? I don't know third month of data it was it was early. We went to the edge of the terrorists and it was super romantic. We at this point. I hadn't said I love you now. But we're like gazing the which others is and I was like he's going to do it. This is the perfect time to say. I love you said so. Do you want to go downstairs to the room for a nightcap and it was the most disappointing thing ever although the room was great and I love the room but I did not say I love you there. I should have. We'll get into the actual story of when I said that at a different episode so a few months go by six months it was real early and and I have this grand scheme that I'm GonNa ask Mary me. He had no idea. Are you kidding me. I knew within like I knew the next day after the Fairmont I was like that's where he's that's what he's he's GonNa do and you're GonNa do it on our anniversary. She was clueless So I- reenacted a bunch of dates that we had had in our first year we had a picnic The ferry building we love picnic. It was Christmas time and so there was ice skating in Union Square. Romantic time in the air. Yeah I love Union Square in Christmastime Times. The only time I liked union square but we went to union square to to go ice skating and took one look at people ice skating and was like nope I have like fragile knees your superclubs really clumsy and we snuck back up to that elevator. Joe Named we went back in the elevator. Win the -mergency exit stovepipe standby whatever stovepipes. Frosty the snowman. Whatever we trespassed again it was a good time and then we had dinner bar team which is now targeting manufacturer and then went back to the family And at this point Leon still still has. No I know my God. And we're wandering the FAIRMONT. There's a beautiful gingerbread house because it's Christmas and we walk out on the terrorists. Know hold on. You rushed me passage into Red House. I was like Oh my God. I want to look at other gingerbread houses. It's pretty we're like no. We have to go up to the roof right now. Like why gotta go. It is because I had set this up where our friend was waiting in a Bush in the freezing cold December weather San Francisco. She was there for a while there for so long. And do you want to say what happened. You asked me to marry you boom and you open it by being like like when you go today. It wasn't a year ago today. Whatever I should've asked you to marry me Arrow? Let me do this terrible this. I said that I should have said that I love you. Are there because it was super romantic and I decided that I was GonNa make up for it right now and then a god down on that and I was like at our friend. Our a friend was like a hiding in the Bush taking low-quality here's a worst quality pictures. They were like blurry cell phone pictures in the middle of the night and it was. You can't see anything not our that. Sorry be but there was like a really drunk couple that swore that they had pictures for us. Never send them to us. We're still waiting on those. If you're out there please we send us our wedding pictures. Come on Heather and then we went down to the room and we celebrated with all of our friends like arranged. A surprise party. Surprised that one. You actually actually didn't see come now. You didn't see coming when I booked our first our wedding night. After our wedding at the FAIRMONT. Because we can't afford that Shit without credit card right points. That part of the story does get sexy. Don't they feel so violated now. We love the Fairmont and Fairmont on San Francisco holds a special place in our heart because we have so many moments there and it's such a beautiful place this is not sponsored by the FAIRMONT. But if you're listening we're not turning away sponsorships remove both. Yeah it was. That was my favorite San Francisco Story. It was super romantic You're a big old softy. Real mushy and disgusting. And I love you. I know that we gave San Francisco a lot of love but we live in Oakland. But I promise that we have in Oakland episode coming up because Oakland is one of the best different than San Francisco Cisco but we'll do that on a future episode and I think to close off this episode. What have we did like a little mash? Up of all of our favorite San Francisco songs but like only like take a few seconds each so that we don't violate the copyright. What do you think a little mash?

Welcome Roger Thank you so much for coming and I've been looking forward to this Having you on the show because I think you have a wealth of information regarding our waters in the bay area and fish etc so welcome. Well thank you very much for inviting me. It's always a good opportunity for me to talk about the industry. I'm in some of the things that affect the industry and I always look forward to letting people now and seeing if we can all think about some of the problems in ways to correct them right. Can you give us a little background on? I know I you know introduce you with your governmental an official status. But you know we just give us a like a little back room. Oh you're from. My basic background is born and raised in Gilroy. Here Native Californian Native California now from what they call the garlic capital of the world. Them Years I lived there when I was born and raised for is too high school on stuff that was raising prunes not garlic and then they raise garlic and then they have a major manufacturing or processing plant. Nobody raises garlic now but process. Can they bring it in from elsewhere? Anyway that's they have the festival of course that's why it's called ever tried the garlic ice cream. No I never heard of that. Actually I left. Go Roy in nineteen seventy two and About when they started a garlic festival and because of the occupation I men running a commercial fishing vessel and taking people out in the ocean to fish for Salmon. Go Bird watching them whale watching and bake cruises and all the other activities that. I do on my boat. I work on weekends and I haven't gone to the garlic festival but I was brought up by alkyl basically and he was a judge conservationist and hunter also. I learned that hunting is fine as long as you eat what you shoot and I know this folks in the world wouldn't don't like hot. Her most hunters are really conservationists. We all contribute to ducks unlimited California waterfowl and to the wetlands and all these outfits do good work with tried to bring the wetlands back and take care of the birds and deer and all the other critters and we do the same thing in fisheries. We have what they call a Commercial Sam Stamp Program that Salmon Stamp Commercial Salmon Stab Program in the Commercial Fleet. Started that back. In nineteen seventy eight in the money goes into specific fund and is utilized for helping the hatcheries out tagging programs improvement to the hatcheries habitat and all the things that Saman need and our industry the Commercial Pass your fishing vessel industry by legislative action in nineteen eighty three joined it and we're required to buy stamps. Depending on how many crew members who have and and you're the captain my particular case. It's accrue to and that money goes into a fund and there's a committee made up of the people who contribute that makes recommendations to the state where the money spent. So you're buying stamps. You're saying can see stamp that you have to have in order to fish for salmon from a vessel vessel has to be licensed and if you were fishing commercially which we aren't we take passengers. You'd have to have one for yourself. And one for crew member and the cost of the stab fluctuates with the estimated size of the catch for the previous previous year. But all that money goes for for conservation purposes. And you feel confident. That's happening with oil. Yes it's a very good program. We produce We Fund some of the hatchery activities. We Fund the tagging Osaman. They're all twenty. State has a law that twenty five percent of of the fish that are produced at hatcheries have to be marked with a little thing that they put in their head and they clipped the adipose fin and when officials caught the biologist who check the fish at the dock. Cut the head off and they read that. Little Marker and the information is then transmitted for management purposes. How many Fisher are coming back from? What hatchery when they were tagged and you can tell what the successful programs are if they released him at the hatchery versus truck in down to the Golden Gate or Barging. They can tell what's the most effective way to preserve them so there really is a good control on well. There's IT gives you a good information and of course with the water problems we have in California and we have so many people so much population. Nowadays it's adversely change for for all the natural critters years ago before the dams you had very free flowing in all years and a water went out the golden gate. And that's what it's supposed to do is supposed to run the West. From the mouse down the streams out through the whole estuary and our estuary and our Delta is the largest in North America and and it. It isn't natural anymore because of the water. That's taken out by both the state and federal pumps has please explain that state and federal pumps remove water from the south part of the Delta and that was cut els built by the First Governor Brown Edmund Brown that took to water to southern California then it's pumped from Bakersfield over the hill in the southern California. It's a massive system and you have both Stade Akwa. -ducted federal equity and and they can remove tremendous amounts of water and limitation. Well there is now because of the federal dangers species act on winter run salmon which reached a critical L. years back and the water flows have to be cut down at the time of the year that those fish move through the system. Both as little ones had this big ones coming back and the water has to be regulated temperature wise flow wise a whole bunch of different things to protect the endangered species at the same time not just salmon but the Delta smelt which are a native species to the Dell though are in trouble so there's water regulations to try to protect them but the massive amounts of water that that get moved effect everything in Basic River Systems and the Delta and the Bay and in my opinion in the ocean do you. Do you think that I mean I don't quite understand I mean if they're taking water out in moving to southern California and but if the water flow coming from mountains is the same. You know the water. Well if you had one hundred percent of the water going to the ocean and through the Delta you wouldn't have any problems delta would get flushed out to natural feed be their habitat would probably be much better than it is down but what happens. Is You get this flow coming down and it turns and starts out through the Delta and down into SAN PABLO BAY and out in the OT and he had to San Joaquin River coming in from the south side now. What happens is the waters out coming in coming down like this? They take the water out of the lower end. So the flows aren't full steam out this way. And because of the large amounts they taken low flow years. Things don't get flushed out right and work contamination cents. More things going wrong. That isn't like nature would be by itself so it's man's many relations in fact if they pump too much they can even have reverse flows In the southern part of the delta and where the Sacramento San Joaquin connect and this affects the travel of the little fish. And there's all kinds of things and all of us have worked throughout the years on corrections and we have made some headway if it wasn't for the endangered species act and some of the things that have transpired cutback some of these water flows. We'd been real tough shape for salmon. Do you think that endanger endangered species act is really being enforced? It's being enforced. When it comes to sabotage it's being enforced comes to Delta Smelt. Sometimes we think it should be enforced more when we're looking at it from a Salmon Perspective. Of course the farmers in the South Valley that have water rights. Think the opposite. So we're always butting heads for somebody. There is some concerns of people and myself being one of them of what is transpiring with the oil fracking in the South San Joaquin Valley explain that. I'm not really educated on that totally educated either but it's my understanding when they use this new process to break up the ground way down where there's been oil previously. And then they get into the right rock and they break it up and they utilize pumping water and stuff down there to extract the oil. And that's about as much as I know about it but it used large amounts of water contaminate the water. I'm not up to speed on that but I've read about it and some people that feeling that someday could really goof. Up yonder water supply water which people depend on in drought years? When they can't get the water out of the canal circus or not pumping it down fan. So there's so many variables you know you talk to expert. Probably geologist or something. That knows something about oil. I don't WanNa get into that concerns that it could cause some serious problems so it just adds to the total use of water and California's got such a large population. And it's pretty obvious that there's a lot of things that could be done if you look at the Arab countries like the Middle East. They process the salt water and get it to freshwater and and utilize that. Well we haven't been able to build the facilities because of environmental concerns where they need to take the water. But I think now they're tr- they're building something one of the cities in southern California. Oh and someday that'll probably have this worse than we do so southern California as a water crisis also from the Colorado River serving a tremendous amount of people that didn't use to but in regards to the fishing community and the health of the ocean. We're vitally concerned about the flows out affects things and one thing that has always bothered me in my business. I do whale watching and years ago when I started back in a very early seventies gray whale migration in particular used to buy great down the coast and they they use the coastline as as their guideline for coming South Gray. Whales Migrate Buried. See All the way to Mexico yearly. They're young and then they come back and they bring the cows bringing back the cavs and but we have just go right outside the Golden Gate right outside the harbor in Half Moon Bay just half a mile or so and we saw Wales throughout the period of time from Nineteen seventy-one until now the whales have moved further and further and further off shore and point raises thirty seven miles up the coast from the Golden Gate and the whales used to come down and come right down the shoreline all the way down and across the Golden Gate. Now they come down to point race and they turn and go outside the Farallon islands and then come down and go to pigeon point which is forty miles below the golden gate but to stay off shore all that time and then when they get to pigeon point they still operate on what they used to operate. I go right down the coastline and so something has been going on and developing and I think something is coming out with the Water. That's coming out of our whole. Delta and stuff and and make these wells go further offshore. They don't like the water. They don't like something that could be pollution. It could be a sewage. That's been treated that comes out of the major cities and the Delta it could be agricultural runoff. It could be many things that I'm something that's doing it and you know some people say well. It's the ship traffic well. Ship traffic has gone on forever. There may be more of it now in some cases for the offshore wells. They've changed the shipping traffic lanes. I really am very curious about how that's going to work out. The reason they changed those. What do you mean? Well there's traffic lanes when you go outside the Golden Gate. There's the main ship channel Bescot boys that market a dredged channel because we have a sandbar outside the Golden Gate. It goes off shore dredged channel so the large ships can come in and would make it to the end of that. There's what they call the San Francisco entrance boys three miles outside the main ship channel. And there's three traffic lanes one going to the West one going to the South West and one going straight to the south and wherever the ships are going to have to stay in that traffic lane and there's both they use it for both ways inbound and outbound and they did a survey on humpback whales where they were feeding and somebody determined. They thought it'd be better to move. The traffic lanes were there hadn't been a lot reported. Well time will tell but the whales feed where the feed is enough to feed moves which you have no control. You can't tell the feed. Don't go traffic in Mother Nature. That's right so we'll find out what happens with that concept. How long it's been going on. It just started extended the western traffic lane more and go out further and turn up or down further offshore. But W- we probably don't have very good records of what was going on offshore Arcus not that many people go out there.

It's All In My Head
"Welcome to the Buddhist bootcamp podcast. Our intention is to awaken enlighten enrich and inspire is simple and uncomplicated. Life discover the benefits of mindful living with your host Timber Hawkeye. Even though I generally fare better in quiet places with very few people so that I don't get over stimulated or overwhelmed I do often find myself in loud crowded areas which I can handle in small increments if I bring a pair of earplugs and a plan to regain my balance with some solitude later in the day but I had a dream the other night where I was trapped in a crowded room with way too many people all of whom were very loud angry and screaming while I was desperately trying to remain calm in the midst of it all without noise. Cancelling headphones are any end in sight and with me being somewhere on the spectrum. It wouldn't be a far stretch. Call that a nightmare. I woke up sweating profusely. Heart pounding ridiculously fast in the midst of a full blown anxiety attack somehow simultaneously grasping for air and breathing heavily at the same time and all of that was from a dream. I wasn't allowed crowded room. I was in bed comfortably tucked under the covers in blissful quiet solitude so why was I freaking out? This reminded me of what you've probably heard me mentioned before or read in books about a guided meditation exercise in which a group of US was. I asked to recall the saddest moment in our lives in great detail and then the happiest moment we could recall as we shifted from quietly crying to Giggling to ourselves even though we were just sitting in a quiet room with no external stimuli the only thing that changed was what was going on in our heads so when I woke up from that nightmare exhibiting physical symptoms. As if I was actually in not uncomfortable situation I reminded myself of what I already know that I can be alone in my room fighting panic attack or in the middle of Manhattan during rush hour yet com as a Hindu cow. It all depends on my state of mind where I am physically and where I am in. My mind has nothing to do with one another and since where I am in my mind is not only far more important but also the only thing within my control. I guided myself back to where I wanted to be and actually already were safely in bed with no one around. I laid there thinking about how much of what weighs heavily on us is only in our minds and it reaffirmed for me that learning to exercise the mind like a muscle is more important than weightlifting or any other workout. It's not just helpful. In Times of trouble. We constantly try to create what we consider. Ideal conditions or circumstances for ourselves and people even regularly tell me about their favourite most beautiful meditation spot for example. Be It on mountain tops in the woods or along the beach but when we close our eyes to meditate we can transport ourselves to wherever we want to be. It doesn't matter where I am physically because what's going on in my mind as much deeper effect on me. The reason I bring this up is not just because it's helpful to those with anxiety. It's a tool. We can all use by first bringing awareness to wear. Remind goes when we leave it on. Autopilot here's what I mean when I lived in the bay area and regularly drove east across the bay bridge as soon as I got in the car. My body through nothing more than maybe muscle memory took me in the direction of the bay bridge regardless of where I needed to go one morning even though I knew I needed to go north across the Golden Gate Bridge to Marin County a fine myself halfway through the bay bridge before I realized I was heading in the wrong direction in the same way. Believe that through repetition we can make our default response to any situation. Be Calm Cool and collected true. The danger of always remaining calm would present itself when a true emergency arises and one may find themselves calmly oblivious to an incoming soon. Nami for example. But I'll take those odds over the alternative of reacting to daily inconveniences. Each was a natural disaster. It's actually amazing to me that we need drivers education a license and insurance to drive a car but we get no training whatsoever on how to use the most powerful tool. We've got our minds so let's take the first step of training our minds which is to acknowledge that whatever we're feeling at any moment is a choice and then ask ourselves. Why am I choosing anger right now? Why am I choosing fear why am I choosing scarcity lack or not enough newness? What can I choose in this moment? Instead that would benefit mean a long-term the simple act of reclaiming that power is a huge step. Let's take it together.

San Francisco (or "Don't Call it San Fran")
"Hey Babe what's up. What's the difference between California Mexican food in Texas Mexican food? We are not going to get a divorce in the first episode of Our podcast. Thirty seconds is it that case though is the best part of Mexican food fucking. Do you consider Cuba to be the best. Hi Jeremy where. The accident prone travelers behind practical under less. And we're here to dish out. Travel tips tricks. Useful Trivia. Useless Trivia mildly Lee entertaining anecdotes. And everything else you need to void making all of our terrible terrible terrible terrible terrible mistakes and we make a lot of mistakes today. We're going to be talking about one of our favorite cities San Francisco city by the bay. And this is because I mean we we kinda live. Here I've lived here for for like twelve years now. Jesus Christ are eleven years old. Eleven years I've lived here for like eight years but when I say here I actually live in Oakland which is outside citing Francisco. And we're not going to talk about it because although we love it it's not San Francisco we're GonNa be talking about SF. I've actually never lived in San Francisco I have. I lived there for about five five years when I moved here for College I was a bright eyed bushy tailed kid from a small coastal town and I took to the city like like a elephant conceals a water buck wife. I just WanNa read. Your origin story is now it was just a lot of messy nights in college. It was basically what it was. You know what I think. I've seen that one I think. Did Amy Schumer starring that. Yeah actually that. Was My train wreck. That was my life store. Anyway we're going to be talking about San Francisco. We're going to be giving you some actual information random fun tidbits Jeremy's local opinions about stuff and some stories about one very long story. That's very near and dear to us like spoilers. No it's not spoilers. It's like foreshadowing spoilers. Spoilers all right well. Let's jump into some weird stuff about San Francisco because people come here because it's weird it's the weirdest place. Like San Francisco is the epitome of weirdness one of my favorite favorite things. And you're gonNA actually notice this throughout the episode. We refuse to call it anything other than San Francisco or SF or the city. Those are the three acceptable notable things that you can call San Francisco no Frisco no San Fran like our ears start to bleed a little bit everybody here in San Francisco. We're very polite rate. But if we hear you calling it Frisco while we walk down the street will be very upset. And we'll probably like passive aggressively. tweet something about it. It don't do it. I goes acceptable. -ceptable twice if you're ordering a Frisco Mel from steak 'n shake which they don't even have here or maybe they do. Actually I forget. Or if you're in talking about Frisco Texas now neither of which of light is his inferences correct. So don't do it. The other thing is that we have personified are fog. That's rate what's our Fox name. Karl he has a twitter account. You guys can go follow him. Carl the fog the fog and we really gross thing where like will travel to another city and it'll just like beyond normal foggy day and we'll be like oh who curl you fold is here to Amsterdam. Oh thank thank you let me just say that. That's only thing nobody else does that everybody does that. Everybody named Leo Garcia Nacho. Everybody does that. There's also a random herd of Bison I sent in Golden Gate Park one of my favorite weird facto AIDS Golden Gate. Park is also an amazing park that we have in the city. It's bigger than central park is out to flex on on you. But one of my top. Five must do's foreshadowing to use your word and talk about that later but yeah you can find the Bison there somewhere in Golden Gate Park. I've only found on them. Once they got a lot of lander roam around in they. Don't they're real easy to find about thereby chain of lakes drive okay anyway. There's also a lot of micro micro climates each neighborhood in San Francisco has its own personality and its own weather which is like when I say neighborhoods. We're not talking like you drive for five minutes and you get to like a different neighborhood neighborhood. It's like literally across the street like you can stand on one. St and be looking at Chinatown and behind you is little Italy and they can be completely different rant in every way. It's the weirdest thing. Yeah you'll walk the old. Get off of translator out of your car and it'll be like super hot and then you'll be like oh I thought San Francisco's cold and you'll walk two you block and all of a sudden you're in a completely different world and you're freezing and this is why everybody tells you to wear layers. which like you know we say where layers and that's just you're like? Oh put on a jacket doc it. That's not what we mean. What we mean is like one minute you're going to be ninety degrees and melting and then it's GonNa be six PM and you're going to be standing in the exact same spot and suddenly you're going to be freezing to death and if you try go to the beach you will freeze and it is horrible? I wish we're at the beach right now. It's really hot in here. It is extremely hot in here. Another thing that kind of drives me nuts honestly and I want to categorize crazy when this everyone and everything and San Francisco is like at least an hour behind constantly. Everything is super flaky. And everybody's just just like totally okay with it and it tries me fricken nuts. Let's California's a whole actually. It's especially bad in San Francisco like you're not really considered late until your over over two hours late and that includes parties like we have a habit now we we have a party. We tell all our friends to arrive two hours earlier than we actually think they're gonNA show up. Do you ever have. I've gotten a lot more responsible so can stop that listening now. Our friends are great at this point. Because I think we've cut out all those super flaky. The ones but like okay. Do you remember like when my sister came to visit. And they live on the East Coast and we had dinner reservations which is unusual because in San Francisco. That's usually just not a thing because we like to be really busy and elitist but we had dinner reservations and we were trying to get there at the right time and a series of late events jusque ask kept occurring like the bar was. The muny was late. The trolley was late everything was late and their heads were exploding and we were just like chill. This is fine. We're not and then we showed up and they were like it's chill. It's only six thirty or not even late. Taking the trolley. Nobody takes control. It was a touristy thing. It's nice you know this. The whole episode is literally just as talking about cool things to do visiting San Francisco. Right I know so speaking of things that like people have to do when they come here like some touristy some not what are your our top five things that you would recommend visitors do so okay. My number one thing is something that you won't find online we haven't even written about it. It's called Jericho it's this. It's like super cool spy game by a company called Fox Hound. Basically it's laser tag but the city of San Francisco is like your laser tag like floor level. Oh I don't know if that's called you play laser tag you've got like this cool. Like Messenger bag with a gun inside and you've got like a mission and all your friends teams and you have to fight with them to like run to like vim bark. Heroin like steal something from seal or whatever and then like shoot your friends at you know the middle of Union Square and then like duck and roll and like find this guy. That's like wearing a mustache. It's so much fun. It's the most fun I've ever had in San Francisco. It's a laser tag spy walking tour. All right well I guess you could have described it much better than I could better. Yeah they have all these different missions like they have nighttime ones. They had daytime wines. I haven't actually done all of them but I've done a lot. We did one like Bride Party versus Groom Party and I kicked U. S.. Okay let me just say what happened. Lee is really clumsy. Wow and we were in. We were in north beach which is literally literally little Italy and it's super hilly and we were running around these hills duck and through strip clubs. Because that's what little Italy's known for and we got in a shoot out in in front of a strip club and then leaves around the corner and she's just screaming and like fake crying out fake cry and cussing feelings as she was like. I rolled my ankle angel. And you guys just kept playing and we were like Oh shit. Let's put a hold on. This really quickly is actually hurt. And I didn't want it to be like super hurt for the wedding and friends friends. My friends who are all like my friends are all really good at everything. Like I've got one best friend WHO's a marathon runner one best friend who's like a circus performer. And they're just like doing flips and shit off of buildings just like running around. Yeah they had to get across town in like ten minutes before the time ran out and then my brother-in-law and I are tending the Lia and it turns out that she was like spinning a yarn. The whole time. That's okay. I was spinning a yarn. I actually did roll angle. It actually did hurt. I had a feeling I may have played it up for the sake of drama but it was valid. I didn't lie to you or was number two number two actually. This is something that we stuck into our wedding in gas like little gift baskets. It's our Self Guided San Francisco Walking tour so Jeremy came up with this whole route. Where you start at the embark aero you go all the way past the seals pasture thirty nine all the way up to geared Elliot Square? You go through quite tower through all that area up there. It's absolutely beautiful. And then you take back down because I think it's really fine. And we actually had the entire San Francisco walking tour on our blog. If you google like anything's Self Guided San Francisco walking toward anything like that. You'll find a link to it in this podcast description. But it's really fun. It's hey it's like six miles. It takes like two and a half hours. And it's a great way to see San Francisco though free on your own two feet and you get to meet some seals which is the best thing not even halfway through episode one and we've already got our first plug you all right to be there. We also mentioned seals like four times so seals are wedding. There's GonNa be more plugs though because we have a lot of content about San Francisco. It's going okay my nightlife at the CAL Academy of Sciences. So we have this Awesome Science Museum in Golden Gate Park so you have to like navigate past like her device and I but they do this thing called nightlife every Thursday night and it's like the whole Science Museum turns into like doc and kind of like a nightclub like it's twenty one and up every week has a theme and it's all like themed around some cool Scienc- thing the food is themed drinks are themed. There's all these different exhibits on all different floors and you get to access the entire museum and also do this cool nightclub thing For like half the price of a regular admission and you don't have to deal with kids which kids but not when I'm drunk at a nightclub that also science museum you know they're also all over L. Academy during the day so it's nice when the kids aren't there. It's really fine so if you're here on a Thursday night definitely check out my next thing this goes with your your like amy. Schumer messy beam karaoke at butter. So butter is a white white trash themed bar which we love. And I'm allowed to say away trash because I'm here in Kentucky in you're allowed to say white trash because I was born Bakersville. Yes I was going to say it so basically really every Sunday night. Butter does Kariuki. So you can get like you're white trash themed drinks which talk about later and you're white trash themed food think like you know deep fried twinkies and Ravioli out of a can and sing Karaoke and like you might be picturing like some down home you know drunk Mascaro key but this is like this is like we're series Carrio years like come to play this highbrow hot Mascara. There's actually like a competitive like Karaoke teams Francisco this up. It's one guy I. It has a competitive shirt I don. I can't vouch for this that it's an actual league. But he does. We did see a shirt one time. So you like nine and basically you need one song and you can having to have practiced your song. Because you're only going to get the thing the ones on and I know that sounds less fun. But it's way more fun because you feel like a Rockstar and we'd love Karaoke butter so much that we actually hire the Karaoke Dj EJ to do our wedding reception. 'cause we had karaoke wedding reception and it was awesome. Yeah he's also got like really cool selection of of songs that you you've definitely heard these songs things whether they were in like video games or like obscure references deep you goes. He's got a deep bench. Yeah but there's also a caveat if you're going to sing Bohemian Immune rhapsody or don't stop believe in you have to pay five dollars. Yeah the Katie days name is Roger Niner. We love him he also does the same. Where like if you're sucking on your song? He will jump. I've been an sing with you. And he he has the voice of an angel. It's not just if you're sucking on it if he's also into the Song Oh yeah and they'll harmonize with you. You don't have to do at partner. He'll be your duet partner. It's it's actually so fun and you'll probably see us there if you go because we go a lot. I usually do under pressure with him. That's pretty mercury. Yeah I usually do Britney spears. It's still a show. I also do Johnny Cash. It's easy go to. We should probably move to the next auto okay so my next one is exploring golden gate park which talked about. We talked about Cal Academy we talked about the Bison. It's huge Golden Gate Park. We already said it's bigger than Central Park. It's it stretches all the way from Like the Haight Ashbury neighborhood which you've probably heard of because hippies to the ocean is enormous and you could just spend all day walking through it biking through it like you'll probably come come across lake some cool hippies that have been there since the sixties you'll probably come across like random other museums the museum there which is really awesome and it's just gorgeous. There's a beautiful Japanese garden in the middle of their and you just feel like you stepped into Japan. There's just so much to do in there. You could spend days just getting lost in there and then while you're on that side of the city my other one that I really love in that area is called the batteries to bluffs trail so this is one of my favorite places to view the Golden Gate Bridge. Because you've always he's got to look at it right like you can't come to San Francisco and not take a bunch of bridge southeast but if you go to like the touristy bridge spot there's just a bunch of tourists and a parking lot and it's just like not the best so head up the road a little bit. And you'RE GONNA go into the presidio which is like this beautiful national not national. I think it's a state park but anyway it's just like park area around the Golden Gate Bridge and and there's this trail that runs from these old historic batteries. All the way down to the ocean and at the bottom of the ocean when you get to the end of the trail is a nude beach which is just a fun little San Francisco experience. You know you can't really you can't say you've been a San Francisco if he didn't like some deck. It's not directly at the bottom of the stairs. You gotta you gotTa wonder around the bottom bottom of the stairs and five feet. I believe this is also where burning man was started right. Yeah Yeah so But that's definitely the best place to see the Golden Gate Bridge and it's just a beautiful. It's like one mile trail and it's just it's lovely highly. Recommend what are your favorite. Must Do's so mine are a few minor pretty seasonal the first one which okay. I'm way too old to party anymore. I got that all out in the twenty s but I will say that one of the best parties by far is Beta breakers which happens in the spring and it's a marathon that starts at the bay so on the eastern side of the city and it goes goes down market street and down Hayes all the way over to the ocean on the other side and just making this sound exhausting. It's a marathon but that's not at all it matters. No that's like that's like like what it is on the surface but really what it is is everybody follows the marathon runners and just parties through the city. Everyone gets in crazy costumes costumes and everybody tries to hide alcohol because like officially you can't have alcohol but everyone is drunk and UC super interesting costumes. And it's all like these group costumes. Our favorite one was a group dressed as the Jurassic Park ride. They even had a tyrannosaurus rags and he would like come pop up and they would all be like They had the little yellow strap said they would like get into order. It was super cute. I just love how you're doing. Like rollercoaster moves right now which nobody nobody can see. Because it's a podcast. While I was doing roller coaster moves anyway. It's a huge part of. There's so many like house parties that you pass along the route to. It's just so much fun. My I like week week that I was in San Francisco was Beta breakers and I live on the route and my roommates just woke me up with a pin gwyn costume a shot and a PBR. And he was like it's it's Beta breakers will explain later. Don't let anyone use our bathroom which you did not follow. No I did follow it but the year before they didn't they let one person in the bathroom and then they got finished getting ready and they walked out and there was like a line of twenty people in the living room. Those informative dead. Yeah but it's Super Fun Even if you're not a big drinker last time we were there we were sober and we still had a lot of fun. You do have to be comfortable with naked people because like we said it is legal here in nudity is just part of Beta breakers and and you just you gotta learn to live with that. You're in San Francisco. We usually start like a bet that is boobs buts or Dick's game which twins we're GonNa see the most of and we keep a running tally which I've realized that's always win. It covers their but but they're like oh but frying fall hanging out now but they're always out it's always win running out scalise. That's always my other must do. My other recommendation is a picnic and Dolores Park fellow. I'm hoping we cut that out now. We're not cutting it out. Dolores Park is a park between the mission and the Castro throw. It is one of the most beautiful views and it's always got the best weather and it's real easy to spot because everyone is going. They're not even. I'm just on a weekend weekdays two. It's always filled with people drinking becoming like nobody in San Francisco has job. Apparently everyone brings their dogs. Everyone ruined brings like some elaborate game. I remember seeing giant beer pong where they had like the rubbermaid trash cans instead of Red Solo Cup. That's amazing and they use a beach ball. I I may actually be able to do that. I'm pretty good at that. There's also a Guy Michael also known as the room coconut guy. He's got long dreads and he just walks around with bag of Michetti and a cooler and he'll just pull a coconut out and offer you like a coconut and then he'll hack it up and then pour rum and and if you want and there's the girl with the Swiss Miss Outfit with edibles yeah she's got edibles of all kinds like and they're all serial based so it's like I really like fruit. I really like APPLEJACK applejack so I wanted to have an apple. Jacks edible and no like weed is legal in California but this has been going on since longtime ago way before it was actually legal legal. But they're still they're like they don't care anytime somebody and Dolores Park walks up and like offers you something just you know by it. It's probably fine but also assume it's got weeded. There's even an app you can find your friends in Dolores. Park dislike most San Francisco APP that I've ever heard of this is called Dullsville another thing that I always say to do and again this is only half the year but you have to go to a giants game Oracle Park is beautiful eighteen. At and T.. Sorry I know it used to be used to be packed bill. No that's too old. Yeah so it's one of the most actually is the most beautiful park in the country. Ballpark I mean. Is that just like you saying that or no. That was the Major League Baseball Association. Okay they have a ton of great food. Because because it's San Francisco. We have the best food. Don't add me but got really good. Food are like garlic. Fries are seem so good. Our team used to be good. Wow how I don't think a lot to be fan if you say that no years. That hasn't been even years have been the case since two thousand fourteen go is all right. I I live in Oakland all right. There's also really good drink. Drink options Gear Deli has like salted caramel hot chocolate thousand. That was what I was GONNA say him. Go see a game but it does get freezing if it's a night game or blazing hot if it's a day game. Yeah because there's a lot of sun exposure and you also get really like moist like if you're still at the park nine pm. No it's true like moist because the fog rolls in the fog rolls in and you you just realize you're just soaking wet. Even though it's not raining in theory and then Siegel start like circling overhead. And you just Kinda round like ten. PM You just. I just feel like you're in like the birds you got out of there. If you've ever been to a baseball game you know that around the seven and seventh innings. Stretch your thinking. Oh they're up by a few points. The game might might turn. But you also know that there's very few dramatic endings to baseball games. So I will say that if you get to that point and you realize the game's GonNa go one way. Just go just go. It's impossible supposed to get on the first train home. You're going to be there. You'RE GONNA be out until midnight. My fourth thing is to see a show now that a few things so it can mean a concert a play it could mean drag show There's tons of news where this is possible. There's a lot more independent places like Bottom of the hill is a smaller caller venue. But it's really famous because a lot of now famous people have played there. The mission has a ton of different venues. Protrero Hill has a lot. The tenderloin has a lot so you can just find like either a small or a large one and most days of the week. There's GonNa be a concert a drag show or play so the orpheum and the act theater have off Broadway shows so we just saw Hamilton there. All right. We're not going to talk about that. I didn't hate it I just anyway. We're going to do things a lot for putting me on blast on our podcast. Our favorite drag show is coming up next month. We've been seeing it for the last few years. It's it's a buffy. The vampire slayer drags really take a whole season of buffy and they make it into the most amazing epic drag show like there's like special effects initial. Yeah it's ridiculously good like the production quality is like I was blown away my last thing and again. This is seasonal. Because it's usually just hot weather and you have a ton of options here but go to a festival there are music festivals such as hardly strictly Bluegrass side land outside lands exactly but there's also tons of like street fairs like the how Weird Festival kicks off the festival season in April. The Pride Festival is huge. The job usually there's the FOLSOM street festival. which if you're in the city in September Selassie Sunday September so fulsome is the leather festival? We're done kink. Not just like you know cowboys cowboys cowboys. But we're talking about like kink leather. which is awesome? If you're into that is a little jarring if you're just here with your your family and you didn't have that discussion beforehand. Maybe just you know just know if you're coming in to check if you're coming during FOLSOM street fair. It's a lot of fun if you are willing to be in that space and not be judgmental in that space and understand boundaries and consent and all that kind of thing which is very ah very much enforced to their But butter which is right next to folsom. We talked about Carioca butter after folsom street. Fair is a blast. It is next next level wild because fulsome starts like before noon and Karaoke doesn't start until nine thirty pm so yeah people have been getting real messy bring ringer course. So I mentioned one of the one of the best things that San Francisco has is our food. That's my like eighth. Best thing to do in San Francisco is just like eat just just like eat everything we have the best food here. What would you say is like one of the tops? Okay so you can't come to San Francisco and not have clam chowder bowl like I know it's Cliche but it's Cliche for a reason because it's delicious richest and super filling cozy and it's always like cold and foggy rate so I talked about our Lake Self guided walking tour. That's one of the things along the tour because you pass right by booting bakery like they had like a factory where they make sourdot and they create these little sour dough bread bowls and also like adorable. sourdot animals in the shape of turtles which is my favorite And then they put like clam chowder in it. And it's really good and honestly like I want to tell you it's like the best clam chowder in the world. The bread is pretty good But it's just like one of those classic San Francisco Cisco Things and it is really cozy and it hits the spot every time I grew up and coastal town and so I grew up eating clam Chowder interbred bowl and I will say that I I still am not tired of San Francisco's clam chowder rebel. Yeah it's good for a reason. I have a place in my heart. Very near and dear for burritos. Rita's San Francisco. Your whole heart. I feel your heart is actually just burrito shaped it's the doctor says I need less really unhealthy so oh San Francisco really loves their Britos so much in fact that that they will fight you if you like the wrong burrito and talking about yourself. I'll fight you if you say you liked the wrong burrito and now you're you're right it's the San Francisco Bay. There was a national competition for the best Burrito in the country and San Francisco held the two of the four finalists spots. Now there are two that are Mijo. Choose the first one is Tucker Cancun but they have a couple of locations the one in nineteen th and mission is the best one. I can't believe you have a specific location to you. Not so ridiculous. How long have you lived here? I live in Oakland The other one that I I really like is l.. Far Alito on twenty four th in mission but the actual winner of the competition was locked up career all three of them good options. But I do love Doc Kuhn the most okay. You're not going to back. That claim up. We're GONNA have a angry people on. You're just gonNA leave that there. No those people are going to walk down mission street and have three Burritos and then and then tweet at us saying that I was right. The first one was the best. I would like pictures to go with that when you do that at practical wander. Thank you I'm going to say if you WanNa Burger in San Francisco. Your best bet is super duper. It's not something that we're like super known for but super-duper is definitely other than in and out like a a classic Burger Place to go in San Francisco. I would also had oysters to the list like a local thing. There's a whole bunch of local oyster farms up near point race and we get like really good. Ed like usually about one dollars each oysters and you can get those Swan Depot. They are delicious. Just I know they're kind of like squishy or whatever but like just shoot them they're actually really good. One of my favorite replaces has actually gone through a lot of changes. And it's one of the more boozy places in San Francisco it used to be called Martine and then the restaurant closed and kept open their bakery but now the restaurants back and it's called Tarquin manufacturing and we are a second date at Barton special place in our hearts. Yeah that's a really really special place for us because he is our second date and I- scrimped and saved for that date years. I imagine you boy was broke. It was sweet though. He was like sweating when we sat down and he looked at the menu. And I could tell so. I think we like ordered like one. APPETIZER to share. And just like savored it for a while but it was really cute and you paid which was nice it was one of. Are Those all take the salad and a water situation. Yeah and I think we shared the salad and the water. California was in a drought at the time. Another one is you gotta get get dumplings like San Francisco has a really rich history with Asian culture and we have incredible Asian food one of the best places to get soup. Dumplings MS dumpling kitchen which is like Over on the western side of San Francisco around Golden Gate Park. You'll be getting into the foggier areas so bring layers But the soup you've dumplings or like the my pillow little fluff balls of soup and they are so good. The next place that I would recommend is called foreign cinema and it is always on like the top op restaurants of San Francisco. It's been on there for years. It's been one of the best restaurants in San Francisco for a minute. Yes so you sit outside. There's like a little awning and when you eat while there's like a giant projector playing a foreign film and Oh hence the name hence the name we went there once on a SCAVENGER hunt date which we'll talk about later future episode and it was awesome. Yeah but we were way too should house to enjoy that meal. I remember I remember being being like. This is the best steak I've ever had and I think I might have through it up later and felt really bad about it. It was so good and then the other really good like fancied fancier despite which is still surprisingly affordable if you wanna like ball out but like not like French laundry ball out which was like four hundred dollars a meal? This is more like the thirty dollars. Range is Noga and it's an awesome restaurant. It's definitely fruity and boozy. But like affordable and you can if you sit in the second level you can watch them in the kitchen which is really fine. It's like dinner and a show. Yeah we did that a couple of times except one time. There was a fire in the kitchen. Probably our faults we bring bad luck everywhere we ago we do. That's a theme throughout this podcast. Spoilers spoilers What about drinks like now thirsty? What are your favorite drinks in San Francisco? One of my favorite places to get aid. Drink is ritual coffee but like a coffee drink drink. He takes a coffee drink. The only one that thinks thinks that's funny okay. Whatever they're not all going to land I mean if you WanNa if you WANNA merge coffee handle Whiskey Whiskey drink? There's two cafe yeah. I Love Win Investor Cafe. They were the first restaurant or bar. I guess to introduce Irish coffee in. They say all all of North America but definitely San Francisco and it's like they do the whole thing like the age it and it's really freaking good if you go to like the very back of the restaurant. There's this little room that nobody ever really knows about with this window. That looks out on the water. Like out on over gearless square. And it's really really pretty. Yeah you can also get your coffee. You can get with whiskey or Cognac in yards or brandy sorta choose what alcohol you want. I also will say you glass right over another opportunity for a completely shameless self-promotion self-promotion which is that. If you Google the best shops in San Francisco you will find our blog on it. We have a guide it was written by a Barista in San Francisco. Shout out to Tom. Yeah Jeremy Actually when we met that was a Barista in San Francisco which is probably why remarried live in that highlife. That's like trophy has been goals for me. He doesn't make me coffee every single morning and brings it to me in bed so so sometimes it's instant much like shame you had when you said that if it's an sweetest thing they don't let me into coffeeshops good instant though you know ritual has five dollars per packet instant coffee now do. That's crazy to me. So so since we're facing in twos my two favorite bars are actually owned by the same company and those are Bourbon and branch and tradition and all of this company's bars are like speak easy themed but sort of a like a different varying levels. Throw prohibition themed let's say and and Bourbon and branch is super speakeasy. You need to you. Need a code word to get inside and the code word decides which room you get into so you can go to the normal all like booths or going to tell you the password or you can or you can go into the library area which is sort of standing room only or you can go into the secret. Detective -tective agency which is where we had that like fancy cocktail class that we took. I didn't even know there was a secret to attack agency inside the bar but it turns out if you dig a how class there you get to go in. The whole bar is hidden so you just walk passing. It doesn't look like anything but then if you take a class here in the detective agency and now I can't not see the detective agency. Yeah now we know. Our eyes have been opened but in tradition is a little bit more like a regular bar. There's no password it's still looks prohibition ask but they do their own casket. So they'll one of my favorites. Is They have a twelve year. Bow More Scotch. That's aged in Pinot noir asked sounded so do she's saying that like I love you but like you did is delicious if we if you just like beer and your life is rolling your eyes listening to us talk about fancy drinks. My favorite favorite place to go for beer is called Golden Gate taproom. They have like. I don't know hundreds of different beers and like all these games and they have like really ridiculous shit like I. I am a beer snob. And I like only enjoy Belgian beer because Belgian ruined us which is a future episode but they have some really good Belgian imports. It's and it's a good time plus Ski Bowl. I mean how can you lose it Skibo. Another good one for leg. More casual night is butter so we talked about butter already. It's real down home. It's real trashy. And they have like the best drinks and they they pour him strong My favorite is called Latchkey T. It's it's long island except for it's made with strawberry soda instead of Coke it's delicious and then you like you like. The Junkyard. Dog Ran the Junkyard Dog. It's Vanilla Stoli Vodka and and root beer. But it's like the good root beer that Thomas Keller whatever it's called And then also like the Cherry bomb. It's Black Cherry. Revolved Co was squirt and it tastes as messy as it sounds. Butter is a is a hot mess. They also do Jello shots and if you order Jello shot they just bring them around for everybody. Which I love you can never knock butter? It's the best sometimes. It's like too much that's just because we're old. Honey that's true I also have to shout out to some tiki rooms lake. Okay so first of all Oakland invented the tiki room. Let's just say it. That was us but San Francisco has some really good good one. So they've got the room. which is in the FAIRMONT? And we're GONNA talk about the Fairmont more in a minute but it's super cool. They had like a pool in the middle of the room. There's like like a thunderstorm. Every few minutes always live music playing. It's it's a really good time. And then they have smugglers cove so smugglers cove is a cute a little bar in San Francisco. It's kind of tucked away. You have to like find it but they have over seven hundred different types of rum and their menu is organized by like history of Rom. Tom So it's like it's like educational like learn things like the history of Jamaican rum in the history of Dominican Rahman like all of the bartenders are like encyclopedias of Ron. And then also you're getting drunk from like a giant bowl of flaming delicious rum drink. It's a great time. It's also a really cool ambience. Because when you walk in you look looks like you're in a pirate ship like there's three bars in the top one. Looks like you have to climb to a crow's nest. Yeah it's really fun so after you get like really drunk and and you had dinner. What are your favorite like treats like? Where would you go get like a little dessert? So I'm a big connoisseur of ice cream. You look so proud of yourself as you said that there's just like a glow about you right now. There's a lot of really good ice cream spots in San Francisco but one that I think is above all is called Humphry. Slocombe can't really go wrong with any of the flavors with Humphrey Slocombe. I prefer secret breakfast. which has like Bourbon Carmel? And cereal Israel on it. Yeah it's it's not my favorite but I like everything else that Humphry slocum and there's one in the ferry building so when you're starting out on your self guided walking tour of San Francisco you can go there. I just put it out there. They had a episode with per Shuto Ice Cream on like good eats or something. Yeah Slocombe something famous. We probably have looked that up. speaking of things that are in the ferry building Danny Lyon chocolate. I loved any land chocolate. It's like fancy boozy lake single origin. Chocolate They do bean to bar and they're like original location is in the mission you can go there and take like tasting classes In my favorite thing is that they have a bunch of free samples which I absolutely abuse But they're really really good really chocolate. Well you know what we gave them free Promo so now. Donna can pay the rent with exposure. You welcome to any line. I'll send you an invoice breath. One of the stops that I always go to on messy nights especially messy nights in the Castro is hot cookie which is a cookie shop on sixteenth in market. That is famous for their dick shaped cookies. There's also female torsos. Yeah no it's it's like an equal opportunity dirty cookie place but it's not the high. Cookie is like the best cookie of your life. But it's just like a really good time I disagree with you. I think their regular cookies are really good. But you just don't like macaroni and the Knicks are all macaroni. That's true that's true but I always think about like so one time. We were standing in line hockey after a really fun night out in the Castro may have been to see a drag show. It was the I was buffy last year And we're like standing in line nine and this guy who's clearly from Outta town is like looking at this long line of people outside of this tiny little window and he's just looking back and forth. He goes up to look at the cookies. He comes back and he's just like starts like shouting and confusion and he's like is it just because they're shaped like penis in everybody in that line was just like yes. Yeah that's why that's the whole. Oh thanks and it's true that's the whole thing that's enough the really good they also sell merch and that much is just tiny underwear. How many times have we talked about penises and this episode like more more than seals at this point? I think possibly even more than Self Promo truly winning. The Dick's are winning this time. Okay one last. One is a coconut gun in Chinatown. And I can't tell you a specific place 'cause I always forget and I can never find them but there's like these little one dollar coconut binds in a random in a bakery in Chinatown. Probably all of them and they are delicious. Just really good. Yeah you really can't go wrong with. Chinese bakery treats orders anywhere in Chinatown and have the Fortune Cookie factory there which is really fun to like. Get little broken ones. Do they sell like a giant bag of broken ones for super cheap. I WANNA see. We invented the Fortune Cookie. I think that's true. One of our listeners should let us know we just I really just make bad. Just make up a giant giant ball statement which actually that leads me to another point though like we invented a lot of shit and we've got like quite a history. Why do you think San Francisco is like such a big deal and like we are a big deal? Let's it's just be honest about it. We're big deal. Why are we such deal? I think San Francisco just brings out a few troops. It's always dreamers and and people on the fringes of society. So I think of that when I think of the gold rush we came out here because there is inter. There's enterprising zing spirits but there are also already sort of on the fringe. They were already sort of weird. They're like frontiers people and then when we get to like the nineteen hundreds on your skipping over the whole part where like. They showed up with like their enterprising spirits and just pushed out like all of the first Americans who were already living here. Let's just talk about got it. That happened that sucked it absolutely sucked which also I mean. It's it's home to a lot of people who do push out people and without very little little care for somebody else's experienced also the origin. I found out this weekend. That's the origin of how Chinese immigration came to San Francisco that they were actually part of of the The gold rush they came along with the enterpreneurs Some of them were business people. Some of them were helping with business. People's various needs like vegetable growing. I think was one of their major jobs anyway. I literally just learned this all this weekend because we were in Nevada city which is a cute little gold rush town which we won't talk about now But we have this really fascinating history and that was like kind of the beginning of San Francisco as we know it today and I think you still see you. I still see pieces of that in a different form today. I mean anybody who's lived in San Francisco their whole lives or even a few years. You know the big thing that people always say is that you know transportation is changing it and I think that's part of what San Francisco is. Everybody has their San Francisco. There was Eureka San Francisco and turned the century San Francisco and then there was like summer of Love San Francisco and then there was Silicon Valley San Francisco and the constant in. All of those. San Francisco's is that it's is constantly changing. It's constantly whatever's the next big thing and the next like big idea in American culture for good or for bad. It makes huge changes. Well I mean from from some people. It's always for bad for some it's for good. I mean if you go to San Francisco now. We have a really big problem with homelessness the largest population density of homeless per capita. And it's a couple of factors the main ones being that historically homeless were okay here and so cities would just cities like Las Vegas specifically an La. They put their homes on a bus and say go to San Francisco. They have way more resources than we do. And add to that the tech boom right right now is closing up homes and shops to make room for high rises and office spaces and it's putting more families out on out on the street or pushing them out of their neighborhood that they've been in for generations and then adds that that are former Maher are late mayor. Ed Lee was really problematic and his solutions about homelessness. Yeah I also want to go back just circle back to your point about other cities sending us. They're homeless because they did used to. We used to be able to accommodate for that right like we used to have plenty of space but somebody you'll notice when you're visiting San Francisco is that quite a lot of our homeless are also experiencing being mental health crises. We have a lot of unmedicated like especially UNMEDICATED. schizophrenics in San Francisco so you'll notice just walking on the streets you'll see somebody like talking to themselves screaming to themselves And it's it's very clear that that's a person who's experiencing homelessness and there's like reasons as for that not only were people released from healthcare institutions. I'm institutions years and years ago and have never been able to get help ever since but when you're talking about like illegal shipping of homeless people up to San Francisco. Most of them were mentally. Ill people who didn't have any kind of resources didn't have have healthcare. Didn't have family to pay for them. They were the people that need the most help. And it's just incredibly cruel that some cities were shown to be to be shipping. People that need mental help To San Francisco so it's really something to keep in. Mind that when you are seeing those people that are having mental health crises. They're more danger to themselves than they are to you. They're they're not out to hurt you. They're not criminals. They're on the streets because they need medication that they can't access and homelessness has been shown to exacerbate mental illnesses says so it's actually very triggering very harmful for them to be homeless to be unstable and another issue that you'll notice while you're visiting San Francisco There's a lot of like bad smells Mel's There's a lot of human waste. It's not pretty I don't want to gloss over it. The reason why is because there's not enough public restrooms in San Francisco and so for for the our homeless neighbors who live here. They don't have a safe place to be. They don't have a safe place to use the restroom and it's it's really. It's it's inhumane honestly and so I really would encourage you while you're visiting have compassion and empathy. Because those are those are people right. There are neighbors San Francisco residents and they don't. We don't have the resources to be able to to help them. In the way that need to be helped and so they are experiencing something much more unpleasant than you are when you have to hold your breath or walk bienne b a little bit bothered by them screaming they are really having they have it a lot worse than you sell. Please show some compassion and empathy for them and you might be thinking. Well if I'm visiting how am my contributing to like the bad side of this. Am I contributing to gentrification by being here. 'cause I'm staying at like an AIRBNB. or which if you're saying in an airbnb maybe maybe depends on where we actually do. Have a guide on where to stay in San Francisco which really does dive into the gentrification issue. We've got a lot of recommendations on like different neighborhoods to stand and different kinds of accommodations that we recommend staying in so that you won't be directly contributing to gentrification but tourism as a whole and this I mean I could go on about this for hours but tourism can really benefit a city and provide creates. Jobs provides a lot of economy. So don't feel like you shouldn't come here. Because we're experiencing extreme extreme gentrification but do so mentally and make sure to educate yourselves about some of the issues that you'll experience while you're here it's a great city to visit. It's a beautiful city. It's a vibrant city. It's a romantic city. Just educate yourself and make sure that you are traveling as responsibly. Yeah which is a weird pivot but she said romantic and I Kinda WanNa talk about our most romantic story in San Francisco is a weird visit so weird pivot. Let's do I don't no how to I don't know how to there's no graceful. There's no graceful way to end that conversation that we just had my favorite San Francisco story is about the time. Well I. It's about when our first dates so we're a few months into dating and we go to this fancy Sushi date in San Francisco and on that date Leah He's got a weird sense of humor and they were what they were getting. The tables set up for like the breakfast service or whatever and they had these tiny little jars of jam and mustard. They were really cute. They're Super Q. They were like the size of a thimble. They're really tiny. I don't even know how you were supposed to get all of the jam out of there but Leah thought it'd be funny if we would just steal them so she was like what is huges. Go Up in St Louis Jar of me. Is that when you're laughing and trying to talk. I don't know if I was laughing. I might have just been like all right guy that we've been on three days. Here's what we're going to jail. He was more than three. We're GONNA steal all these jars so anyway I don't want to be a wet blanket. I'll save that for after we're married and now I'm like fine. Let's do these jars so one of us like distracts the waitress. We have a whole song and dance and we do like a weird little creep around the table and just swoop if one of the jars. Yeah it was pretty smooth honestly and that was the point in which we descended into a night of pure criminal exploitation. We became mm-hmm like extreme criminals. Guys this is. This is the story about the time we were criminals. Yeah we decided that we were going to steal every every useless thing that we could find everything that like. Nobody would care. Somebody stole it. We were GONNA steal. We rode the elevator down from the restaurant. There was on the third floor and those little floor marking signs of the end of the elevators. One of them was the glue was coming off and so I took it. We stole it. We stole that. It was number three. I should have it in our apartment. Didn't give a fuck. We superstars how that's how intense I am. We were bad. We were so bad we took. It was so dumb stuff. It was like men's when we didn't talk to the person who is handing out the or like a toothpick or I think I grabbed a piece of potpourri counter. We had like this little collection and then I decided to take it up a notch and I was like all right. It's really cool that we're stealing stuff but let's go sneak into stuff. I want to trespass because we were dressed up like really fancy like you're wearing like your fanciest suit formation and the cost twenty dollars and I was wearing like a thrift store address and I was like we're fancy. Now let's go sneak stuff like we belong there so we went to this hotel that we won't say which it is but it has a famous elevator. We're not going to tell you which one it is because we are full on going to tell you a bunch of secrets about it that you should not do so. It's got famous elevator which we won't tell you about what we can tell you is that you can take that elevator up to a very cool tower with very cool view Except for you have to have a room key to take the elevator. We snuck behind these fancy old people who clearly we're we're going up to the tower like acted like we also were going up to the tower press the button and I was like. Oh yeah same floor Harambe I. I was like remember Matt Profits Mirror so we went up there and we went through an emergency exit door and it was just started like skulking around the floor like poking stuff and like stealing seeing what we could steele steely Moist Towelettes Car O. We did steal a moist. Towel Ed Yeah and yeah so then we've found like this door and we just we were like. Let's open this door because we were being hardened criminals at this point. Let's open the store and Trespass Amore and it was like this really cool like little like fire escape way up in like this. Like top floor of this tower. That looked out over the twinkling lights of San Francisco and it was so romantic. This story is not going to get sexy there. Isn't it no nose X.. Happened but I will say that one of the things people do in this famous elevator. That we won't tell you anything about is they hit the emergency Uh Stop Button and the bang. which we didn't do we do not do that? We are definitely not that cool so we walked the Fairmont and we start we were started wandering around L. I. O.. More stuff. I WANNA take this like I want to apologize to the Fairmont here. We love the FAIRMONT. We have a lot of love for this specific San Francisco. Fairmont hotel is not bill but we definitely bent some rules during our visit to the Fairmont. We definitely may have stolen some blocks of soap. I think link and cements. They had some cute little pill laments and we weren't staying there and we took some this was. This was the only remotely big deal steel that we got actually. Yeah we that the I've pulled a piece off of the off of Chandelier in a conference room. I guarded the door. I guarded the door Jeremy Stolen. He's the chandelier. Look Fairmont hotel. If you want your piece of chandelier shaped like a pinecone back we still have it somewhere in our apartment you can have it back but yes we deal it. We are horrible people so after our thefts were done and we made off with the booty we had like a whole. Oh collection of like random shit. Do we went down to terrorist room and there was an Indian wedding going on and we were just like let's crash this wedding and then and we realized like we shouldn't crash a wedding. That's not okay but it was really fun for the five minutes that we were there before we realized that we were being the rudest people everything smelled so good I just wanted to plow through their buffet and it was like everybody was dancing in lake. It was so much fun we did not plow through their buffet. That was like that was the line. We were like all right. No no further so we went onto the rooftop. It's got this rooftop terrace that looks over the city. Got these big palm trees with lates. It's super for romantic. We're like gazing out at the twinkling lights of San Francisco while the fog rolled in and this was like our third date. There's an our third day. Why do you keep saying that? I don't know third month of data it was it was early. We went to the edge of the terrorists and it was super romantic. We at this point. I hadn't said I love you now. But we're like gazing the which others is and I was like he's going to do it. This is the perfect time to say. I love you said so. Do you want to go downstairs to the room for a nightcap and it was the most disappointing thing ever although the room was great and I love the room but I did not say I love you there I should have will get into the actual story of when I said that at a different episode so a few months go by six months it was real early and and I have this grand scheme that I'm GonNa ask Mary me he had no idea. Are you kidding me. I knew within like I knew the next day after the Fairmont I was like that's where he's that's what he's he's GonNa do and you're GonNa do it on our anniversary. She was clueless So I- reenacted a bunch of dates that we had had in our first year we had a picnic The ferry building we love picnic. It was Christmas time and so there was ice skating in Union Square. Romantic time in the air. Yeah I love Union Square in Christmastime Times the only time I like Union Square but we went to union square to to go ice skating and took one look at people ice skating and was like nope I have like fragile knees your superclubs really clumsy and we snuck back up to that elevator. Joe Named we went back in the elevator. Win the -mergency exit stovepipe standby whatever stovepipes. Frosty the snowman. Whatever we trespassed again it was a good time and then we had dinner bar team which is now targeting manufacturer and then went back to the family And at this point Leah's still still has no I know my God. And we're wandering the FAIRMONT. There's a beautiful gingerbread house because it's Christmas and we walk out on the terrorists. Know hold on. You rushed me passage into Red House. I was like Oh my God. I want to look at other gingerbread houses. It's pretty we're like no. We have to go up to the roof right now. Like why gotta go. It is because I had set this up where our friend was waiting in a Bush in the freezing cold December weather San Francisco. She was there for a while there for so long. And do you want to say what happened. You asked me to marry you boom and you open it by being like like when you go today. It wasn't a year ago today. Whatever I should've asked you to marry me Arrow? Let me do this terrible this. I said that I should have said that I love you. Are there because it was super romantic and I decided that I was GonNa make up for it right now and then a god down on that and I was like at our friend. Our a friend was like a hiding in the Bush taking low-quality here's a worst quality pictures. They were like blurry cell phone pictures in the middle of the night and it was. You can't see anything not our that. Sorry be but there was like a really drunk couple that swore that they had pictures for us. Never send them to us. We're still waiting on those. If you're out there please we send us our wedding pictures. Come on Heather and then we went down to the room and we celebrated with all of our friends like arranged. A surprise party. Surprised that one. You actually actually didn't see come now. You didn't see coming when I booked our first our wedding night. After our wedding at the FAIRMONT. Because we can't afford that Shit without credit card right points. That part of the story does get sexy. Don't feel so violated now. We love the Fairmont and Fairmont on San Francisco holds a special place in our heart because we have so many moments there and it's such a beautiful place this is not sponsored by the FAIRMONT. But if you're listening we're not turning away sponsorships remove both. Yeah it was. That was my favorite San Francisco Story. It was super romantic You're a big old softy. Real mushy and disgusting. And I love you. I know that we gave San Francisco a lot of love but we live in Oakland. But I promise that we have in Oakland episode coming up because Oakland is one of the best different than San Francisco Cisco but we'll do that on a future episode and I think to close off this episode. What have we did like a little mash? Up of all of our favorite San Francisco songs but like only like take a few seconds each so that we don't violate the copyright. What do you think a little mash? Up Son Fra In San Francisco. San Francisco's call Vic Johnson. MM SMOOTH SMOOTH PARVO and Cisco.

"Narrow maximum security has been defeated king for a day. This is the Jason Beam. Horseracing podcast brought to you by twin. Spires your daily home for Horse Racing News interviews wagering discussions and more. Here's your host Jason. Be Rat Friday mortar. Welcome into the Jason Beam. Horseracing podcast brought to you by twin. Spires happen to be with you here on this Friday as we close out yet another week of shows could we show in the books appreciate everyone who tuned in throughout the week. Appreciate a lot of emails this week. A lot of New Listener mentions from overseas. I had two people on twitter and three on email. Who wrote and said you know our were not racing over here and stumbled upon your show and you guys were still racing over there and Thanks for the For the entertainment I was I. I see that. We get random. Listens from random countries and part of me thinks. Maybe it's like you know just an accident or or someone who you know or maybe I don't know it just seems weird that people in how many countries hear us and there's usually a handful you know from even very remote small countries every week that. Listen so it's if you're out there. You're you're appreciated whether you're domestic or abroad and looking forward to catching up with our jury friends. I mean it feels like feels like a big weekend right. Churchill Opening Golden Gate is underway in fact the rainbow sixes about four. Sixth of the way done is I'm finishing up my recording here Pretty happy honestly with my opinions from yesterday in terms of the Golden Gate pick six basically had the first two races is clocked as possible. I said I said I liked four horses in that first race. But I had to whittle down the too 'cause they weren't big prices and they ran won two and we're never threatened and the Horse I singled in the second race Ran Pretty good. I like that. Twenty five to one shot. The ran second You know at a good price like I said he didn't win. But overall the the opinion I'm happy about and You Know I. We're all blessed with talents in life. I believe that everybody has their own unique gift and maybe mine is finding somewhat overpriced horses. At a San Francisco Bay area horse track that runs on a synthetic surface. That could be my very specific talent in in life but we will talk a little more about the churchhill card a little bit later on. We'll talk about it quite a bit with the jury. Our topic this week is just some. I wanted one or two strong opinions from the boys could be a horse. They could be a favourite. They're going against could be a jockey or trainer. They're they're fading. So we'll talk to the jury boys here in just a couple of minutes. Of course Santa Anita back in action and some state bred stakes events a nice allowance race. That's looks like a stakes event. And some decently fulfilled. I talked to Frank. the Mir body the voice of Santa Anita on the phone yesterday and he sounds like he's excited and ready to go and I asked him. I was like you know is your is your job any different really and he goes the only thing is I got to walk in with a mask and And then go to my room and I stay in my room. Which is the same call racist so But he was you know. He said he was definitely fired up. It's been a it's been awhile since we've had certainly not a full weekend of racing. But I mean Charles. Townes back into gear golden gate's Santa Anita Churchill. Opening is a big one. Gulfstream continues on the car to Gulfstream is the the field sizes noticeably different than it than it has been a lot of horses. I think if now not only made the trip to Kentucky but I think with rumor of New York getting back on board of the next couple of weeks I would guess Number of trainers finally decided. Okay let's let's get up there and get settled in and obviously they probably want to have a quarantine period before they start so the connections Want to be up there but Racing does continue a Tampa and Gulfstream. I will do a Gulfstream Saturday preview. Tomorrow I'll post today are posted Friday Probably in the morning because I have I have some plans throughout the day Friday. So I'm going to try to post the first thing. I'm actually gonNA tape it Later on Thursday evening. But that's just a little bit of what we got coming up on today's program Like I said I wanNA talk after the jury WanNa talk a little more about the Churchill card some Santa Anita and In a little bit more I talk about this with James. Coming up the jury and I think it's worth noting the The chilliness of and it's something we've mentioned over the recent weeks but I guess I just hadn't realized how great a lot of resources were running He's one for his last. What is it here? One for his last Thirty two I think it is thirty one and even prior to that it was like a one for twenty something streak And then he previous to that in early March Had been on kind of a heater but it seemed like March Eleventh He won with Katrina. And then after that It's been slim pickens to fifty since that win in since March. The ninth or so so much eleventh rather so Tough Times for the Montbard but the reason I bring it up because he's got a few horses on that. Churchill card that I think are going to be pretty solid favorites Same Wa figures to be a A chalky sort I think in the seventh race yes same Wa. In the seventh race was a A decent second behind center I'll and Five to two in the morning line and then in race five Mr Jagger's is is his horse. And I think you know is a horse who ran a big number finishing fourth as the favourite appetizer. Toga in a TURF RACE. Came back on the main track with Marcos Manassas of all writers for Bill Maher. Don't see that Combo Lot Joel. Rosario now getting on board as they get back on the grass and of course. The weather is something to watch this weekend. The weather is not forecasted to be Great in Louisville as supposed to be in the low mid eighties but thundershowers. Now I've noticed that It's supposed to rain. I think most of Friday day and so I think we'll have a better idea tomorrow of what things will look like on Saturday. Obviously one of the advantages of the big fields they have a churchill is also eligible 's main track only and stuff so should the racist go off turf hopefully the cards stays together somewhat well but very excited for it. We'll talk a little bit more about it coming up little later on. But let's get to our POWs and the jury will take a one short commercial and be right back with the jury here on a Friday.

It's Friday which means we welcome in our buddies from the jury and that means we always kickoff with the derosier. Rose Ed how are you doing? Well can't wait for live racing. Start this weekend here. In Louisville they're gonNA find out of the house. Maybe give you a razor to shave and do you get to keep the quarantine. Look when you're actually on a professional broadcast as opposed to the home stuff so I've had my. I don't have a lot of hair to begin with and my wife actually picked up some barber tools. Like you know professional grade clippers. She's cut mine and my two sons hair a couple times during this so I feel like it's been a blessing to have this little hairs. I do because I've been to keep it relatively camped. I got lucky because I got a haircut like a week before everything shut down and it was rather short so I'm just now getting to where I might be entertaining the idea of a because I love you in your handsome guy. A couple of those late afternoon finer videos were getting scary. I was getting worried and understood. Yeah I definitely let the facial hair in particular I just got lazy with it but We're going sands mass when the cameras on. So I'm definitely GonNa GonNa Shave and The the maskell beyond when we're not on camera so in that regard it I guess it won't matter but yeah for for the stuff. I'm going to try to look my Sunday. Best A MONSTER CARD COMING UP TO MONSTER CARDS COMING UP FROM THE WEEKEND. I talked about the other day about the the taxi. Nature of handicapping. These and I'm sure when entries came out on Tuesday. You were right into him but this isn't these aren't cards that you can just go through in an hour. No definitely not and I've said this inside started this Gig you not every day it first but even just those first few days you know doing once or twice a week A new appreciation for the work people like Andy and Gabby and Acacia shades. And all the other handicappers have done this through the years a full card and talk about it. It's one thing to throw numbers on the grid and then be done for the afternoon. It gets a gamble but you have to be sharp and be talking about what's going on on top of that is is definitely a skill. I admire others having and Yeah it's it's a big hill to climb with these full fields and full slater races on Saturday and Sunday but should be lucrative. I mean I can't imagine many horses less than two to one throughout the two days. Well with the exception of course of of Mon Gross who certainly one of the one of the story lines of the of the opening weekend right as her return and I mean it's funny. I forget how on paper how I know who she is. Obviously you know what she did but boy you look at those. Pp's and they're pretty damn it. Yeah I forgot to to be honest. I mean I knew she'd be a big prime power edge and Kudos to you for for finding a bigger one. I don't know I have a pretty good memory especially with Esotique Eric. Things that that was that was a heck of a pool. My friend in less than well I I remember. I remember you posting about that topic and so I when I saw that. I wonder if that's true. So I immediately. Twitter search from EJ hd two and then the words prime power and about halfway down California chrome if a lot of folks might remember after the Breeders Cup classic and before the Pegasus ran in a little stake. That low sow basically made for him which to some degree. That's kind of what this race is. I mean it was essentially made they throw in that condition of you know haven't won since non winners of a race in nineteen or twenty or whatever But California chrome was like the biggest monster favourite ever in that little between race and he won and I remember point was in that and he had won the long. Here's mile either that year or the year before I forget which one but that that was the biggest lopsided top end and and I mean everybody kind of said like Oh. There's some good horses in this race and talk verve to me but boy. She Mona I on her on her. Best Days Wha mile ahead and I think on seventy percent days probably still ahead. Yeah I I didn't realize she'd gotten such fast bursts of speed ratings either. I think it was nine in the Breeders Cup. Which when you think about Midnight Ibiza. Being in there and some others sorta make sense So you know she's GonNa run back to that race. Probably not off this kind of lay off but it is exciting to have her back I am GonNa try to beat her though. I mean it's just too long of a layoff and and the thing I point to Jason Really. Give me confidence heck of a better word to take a shot against at one to two. Is they've actually tried to get her back to the racist sooner than this. And didn't and you know all credit to the horsemanship to take time and make sure she's ready. I'm not saying it is a is a negative on that front people need time. Horses need time. No problem with that but from a wagering standpoint. Now's the time at the short of price and going to be shorter than four to five to. I would think so I mean I have. I would have to think two to five one to to You know even even at four to five though. I don't love her. I mean this assist Kinda me I I just don't see her running ninety percent race that in my mind it's either and I don't want to say she's back like yeah. Maybe she needs to build up level. She did once. You're a Mac you know. She's going to run an oaks race but boy girl that is all but you know I. Just don't I don't think we're going to see a gritty second where she gets one hundred speed rating. It's either GONNA be. She's you know not going to run to the level. We expect her to or or she will. And if it's the ladder she wins. I mean there's just no question about it. If she runs Amman girl race even some of the allowances and early stakes. She's the winner of this race. Which which sequence on Saturday are you most excited for four? Have you gotten any? We're still a couple of days out and so or have you get. I mean definitely haven't like really thought about what my strongest opinions on the win. And our I mean obviously anytime you can beat a one to two and a pick five. You're giving yourself some opportunity. Just that alone is is something to hang your hat on but I mean the late pick five is just skull buster after skoll buster and. That doesn't necessarily mean it's playable to be honest. I'm definitely not going to put two thousand dollars into it and it's not some some exactly or go golden gold rush six and hopefully as people listening to this conversation outfit. That but I I do think the late pick five if if I end up feeling confident and I'm also waiting on the weather. Where like forty to sixty percent chance of rain from Friday on So obviously that you know is going to play a big role on how I approach the whole day of racing but I I it. It's one of those days. You have pent up. Demand for this product You know the pick. Five pools are GONNA be huge. And and really just one contrarian opinion along with even the logical stuff. I see paying. I can't imagine this. Pick five hand less than five thousand dollars. I think you made a good point in terms of a sequence where on paper looks attractive. Looks looks great with numbers and kind of you know whatever but if your opinions. They're like it's not. It's not a good sequence for you. It's not a great SEATAC. It really isn't. It's kind of that. Old Pylon Ian theorem about know. Everybody gets excited when all the favorites nine two. It's a wide open betting race. This is the best when in reality the best is when you got a two to five that you hate exactly or three or four to one. You can really sink your teeth. Yeah yeah because I mean build around everybody's spreading in the race with the nine two favorite so even if you get an eight to one. It's the fourth choice. Everybody's got it so exactly and and that's definitely something I want to think about really the whole me. 'cause I expect these types of races to be the Not to be the rule not the exception. But yeah I mean if everyone's using the same for horses there three to one in the multi-race wager. It doesn't matter that you got the fourth choice home at six to one. If they're the obvious four everyone's using their three to one basically so you know that's something to keep in mind. Those are the races where you just need. Another Polonia in You like that. Don't I do that all the time? Now his You know you have to a hurdle for yourself and that was a huge mistake which you know. Unfortunately I didn't see it at the time in in my early thirties when I was doing. The players. Toll He would you know. Try to point it out his way. But you're going four by five by five by six by four. You're just giving yourself no shot to really clever the homerun. There's no opinion there so That's something I'm really taken to heart and these are the type of races where you get the opportunity to try to put it into practice when our our question this week and I realized that I miss worded it in the chat room. I my attention was to say I want to opinions from each of you but I actually wrote it. I want to opinions for me because I forgot the Twa. So I'm only holding one opinion too if you got him for the opening day at Churchill. Yeah I mean I really Thought long and hard about the MON girl race I'M GONNA go with us at lake avenues. Her name. It's lake something I think. Talk to me with Steve. Asmussen Listed as trainer now from Rudy Is going to be the other logical choice? Kind of the sexy alternative. So I think we're on the third choice lady. Kate and I think a lot of people lady. Kate thank you Lake Avenue on the Yeah Yeah L. Stinker while she was anyways utilize your speed true twice in a row anyway so lady. Kate. I think a lot of people either going to lean on talk to me. Maybe they use lady Kate to. I'm to plant my flag with her and I think a lot of other people are GonNa go all just saying well. Hey if I can. Obviously most people are GonNa Single Manuel Girl. So I'm talking about the next level. People might say well if I beat her. I don't want the race and that's really inefficient. Here I mean the rest are than the other three I mentioned or are hopeless and if they win I just have to be willing to lose. But I'd rather single against mine and girl than than anything else On Lady cates. The one. I'm going to do it with I. I'm a fan of the hurricane. Very few remember that's the race Sally's curling one where. Cj and his group at rebel went crazy and lady. Kate was attending. What was a very hot pace in that race and that race very much fell apart and so i. I liked to horse at Gulfstream a week or two ago that was part of that early pace and fell. Unfortunately it fell apart in the in the Gulf. And you play with lady. Kate gone. Oh I was going to say you. Get our tease. Who's been on the shelf with an injury for a little while with Lady Kate so yes he's interesting. I'm sure he's hungry and back again was her style. I think you know if you're playing for Montenegro matter fire. She can really end up getting a a much better trip than she got last time. Now again if monoploy girl fires and she's who she is then you know I was wrong and she wins at one to two and Hash taxis back and we'll see what happens after that. But you know this is just one of those instances where you know in a compact field a horse like that might usually be you know to to one But if Montemar girl take some money expect she'll be twice that and then maybe even twice that and the pick five is a single. I'll tell you what you get. If Monica Beach you get seven more outstanding wagering opportunities right after Eddie will allow. We'll catch you next week. Enjoy opening weekend. I appreciate it. Let's move onto our next year so the jury continues on we. Hell it over to Lexington and welcome in James Scully. James. What's going on? Hey not much jason doing a little handicap in and Just like sitting down and looking at all afternoon getting ready to make the the sixty four mile drive from From home to Churchill. Oh I will not. I wish I was like I'll be watching TV. So it's just Ed and Joe Tomorrow there. And they don't have on the crew all me because I lived in see ten that and everything and that's a little bit of like a I don't know they just don't want any contact or no road between it makes sense but the beauty of twinspires.com as you can be part of the action and I'm sure you will be. We were talking just before we came on and I'd had ahead on just a minute ago and it was talking about how for him. Mona Moi girl is a go against and I think to some degree. It's kind of anytime. There's odds on choices you kind of have to be one or the other. You're saying that you you are going with her and I thought we would be kind of fun since we talked with it and he kind of gave his reasons why. I think we should give you the same forum for why you think I mean her credentials are obvious. But why is she a play for you? Well you know the thing about it is is that I just don't think arrivals are very formidable at all in this spot. I mean Frankly there's three horses I think that We'll be the the the the second third or four choices in the wagering Lady Kate and talk to me are going to be the and third choices in either order and both of them have Disappointed over the track. in my opinion lady. Kate I didn't I didn't like the way she ran even last time but last year at Churchill. She's a six to five allowance race in and got drilled like last November. And even talk to me She lost at nine to five. Odds Earlier in her career. And didn't run well in the humanities staff as well as Last spring so those horses have been run. Well you have read day and it's over ne Five starts place in all of them and fashion. Faux paw. I'm just looking at her where she's runner. Better racism to turn so to me. I think Montemar girl. She loves the track. I don't think they'd be bringing her back if she hadn't turned up for training. Because I think like Over the winter and the fairgrounds and Joe Christopher made this point on a video chomping at the bit video about Churchill. Downs being back that we did for facebook That you know her training at the fairgrounds was a lot of like light breezes and dogs in Gallup's but When she got the Keeneland for Cox he she really bore down and started turning in these fast drills and people that are solve train out there. You know have said good things about it. So I think she's geared to run a good race and one thing I think with courses that are going to be odds on like Montemar girl is if I could see an opportunity to cash an exacto with a horse. It is a second or third choice in the wagering. I'm always keen to explore that possibility and this is a race where they won. Miss bigly Fifteen one of the morning line but to me she's got a finnity for Churchill. Downs there some rain in the forecast. Any rain moves her up. I think a significantly potentially and she interesting form winning her last two starts. She could run off the pace and get up for second. Pass THE LADY K. And Talk to me. Who are going to be running each other into the ground potentially and then number five stereo You know is a stone one turn closer who also would appreciate any moisture in the track so I look at the race. I'd be like hey if I was play it I'd be. I'd be taking a multi-race perspective for the most part we're all be single and monoploy girl and those races but if I'm playing in race best I'm GONNA play. Some exact is two one two five straight and you know who could get a twenty dollar? Pay Off with a two to five shot. You don't thinking about James and I mentioned that the other day on the show is that this race or this meat rather Kinda have keeneland feel in the sense of. You're going to get a lot of horses making their first Kentucky start in quite a while from different tracks. I mean there's a lot of fairgrounds. Lotta Oakland there's a lot of turf way you know I mean everybody not everybody but most of them other than the Oakland Ones. Some of the ones are coming in off of layoffs. And there's there's just a lot of those angles that are usually Keelan centric. That are now going to be. Churchill with horses Kinda shipping in and running first off the ship. There's no doubt about it and I think it's GonNa be something that I'll be watching closely because one dynamic we saw last year at during this spring. May Jason was a lot of courses that were coming in from Oakland Park. You know I think you know you know They didn't necessarily run back to their last races there. There are a lot of horses that I think has been like in it for the whole meet at Oaklawn and had been you know. Perhaps it rounded into top form and runs the big races there and then they came to Churchill and they just didn't fire and it was the same thing with the number of Barnes. Even Brad Cox. I know he was too for eighteen. Robert Theodore with them winning a you know thirty percent. Click twenty five to thirty percent clip at Oaklawn last year to winning at a ten percent clip but Churchill often ice cold star Rhonda Cat was like fourth in the standings last year at Oaklawn and he did pretty good this year and then he went one for forty so Steve asked me came in and just tore it up. So you know. He's not a barn. His Barn is so big and has so much debt that his horses aren't necessarily like perhaps coming off of their best form cycle in a sense where You know they've been. They've been pointed races late in. Oaklawn me and then Keelan comes along You know it's the same kind of dynamic you'll see in a sense a little bit like you know Chad Brown. He'll point all you know he'll have always entire stable ready to go to Togo and I'm not saying you know it's just like you know after that after Saratoga over you know he's he doesn't have all these horses to run in all these races per se. 'cause HE'S POINT. I'm just for that one meet. Yea I'm really excited to see. Also how hot does? Because he's been in a very very chilly a mowed down at Gulfstream. And he's one for his last thirty or something and and I know he's got one and same Wa and he's got a few others on opening night card. That looked to be legit chances. And you know it's of tough to negate how. How cold is barnes been? There is no doubt about it and that was one of the things that you know. You talked about like topics to talk about. And I wrote Down Bill. Maher a dental father this horses I mean. He has horses in races. Five seven eight nine and ten and no doubt about it. You're looking at race number. Seven kicks off that late. Pick five and a lot of people are going to be single and say more inside. I say more is going to be the shortest The second shortest price favor on the car after monoploy girl Now obviously you know ran into good one last time. That Chad Brown horse you know look down in my ran a great race and say mall was like you know well clear third so really ran a good race but You know I look at him like I look at this race where you beat him. You really got a chance. In neighbor doubles or pick threes to cast is. I think he's GonNa take so much action. And even there's a horse on the far outside in their number twelve stone would with aboard and I could see him potentially getting clear so that's the race where I won't be scared to go against them. Yeah yeah he's got a couple of others that look you know pretty good as well just on four ministry to race Mr Jagger absolutely I mean he he arguably that last race he's well drawn on the inside with some of his main you know with the potential to have a tough Wa trip so Yeah I got a lot of serious contenders even has that horse coming in Tanker Bill you know. He ran good second last time in Europe. The horse who came right back in one stake race for Aidan. O'brien so You know other than worsen the ninth race Amano maker who is a little questionable I think four of his five horses are all going to take action and and that's a great point about him being ice cold because he has been You mentioned that was one of your opinions for the card to any other thing Really standing out for you coming into this opening day. Yeah absolutely I think another one. I'm GonNa just give a vulnerable vulnerable favourite on the program. I think Number and race number ten portrait. I did not like her effort last year in the Pocahontas when she was six to five. I thought that was a slow race. and You know I you know she had run really well at Ellis and then even this year coming back and running fourth and silver bowl a day and then second last time in allowance trace. I don't think he's run fast. I think she's going to be bet down from four to one and I think she's extremely vulnerable short odd another horse that I absolutely loved it. The race stays on the turf and race number eleven. This is a race where there's a ton of speed and I'll tell you number. Four carrot to me did not break well in her. Last two starts last fall Jason. She came back and broke perfectly. And that's Cincinnati Trophy. And if she breaks as well then you you could have eight horses out there weighing in at number ten five so pretty at these gonNA run right by them and That would be one of potentially multiple winters on the car for Joel. Rosario and so those are two angles late in the program vulnerable favorite and race ten and I liked five so pretty who You know I look at her from multi-race for sect perspective as well as a potential single well we used to always do segment called bad favorite Friday. So James we're GONNA label. Portrait is our bad favorite Friday. And if you win we'll make you do it every week but demand. That horse has been favored in four out of the five career starts been less sub two to one. That's that's pretty crazy. Yeah in his burned money. That is absolutely we appreciate it now. We will catch up to the next week. Enjoy opening weekend. Hey you do the same. Jason always great talking to you. Thanks you so the jury continues on it. We head over to Suburban Louisville and welcome in Scott Shapiro shaft. Kappa you've been underground in the bunker. Wait now to quarantine were finally set. You lose tomorrow yes. I'm looking forward to getting out of the Sure I've been to the store a few times and a couple of outside hang out in the neighborhood but It's been over sixty days. I'm ready to come public be but I'm looking forward to getting back under the twin spires this weekend in meat we have here. Twenty Six day race meet should be very challenging and very fun. Have you been to Church Hill since all this happened? No the last mile at Churchill I think was Filming A VIDEO. Get a number of different videos situations in the winter but no. I don't think I've been there since Maybe we mean Ed filmed the Kentucky Derby Video. There early March late. February would been the last time for me the Derby six month out video top ten list and I I know we should. Actually we should debut top ten for the twenty twenty two derby on the show here in a few months. I think you'll be ready. I think we need to what we haven't done a lot of it. I'm sure Ed knows these but I don't think we need to start taking pictures of all of ours like we don't we do these lists and doesn't so far in advance. It would be interesting to look back and see you know. We know that he's gotten justify wrong. Everybody talks about that now. He does you know it's not even a Rep. I mean you get towards his rom but we never really look back and say hey will you know. Four of the ten horses made it to the Derby and two of them hit the board. Maybe you know. Maybe this is worthwhile or how a horse hasn't hit the board for top ten list in five years. Maybe this isn't you know what I mean interesting. I think in in the days of mass content which we're in. I mean you kind of have to fill a lot of space air and stuff like that and I think a lot of it is kind of fluff and then a lot. I mean. Nobody's holding anybody accountable unless they picked the winner. Of course. Let me tell you if but here's the thing if ED's early early early early top ten list if it had the Derby winner you don't think we hear about it. Don't you remember how much you love Classic Empire as a Horse? No I don't there's a tension Ed's now he has like five hours as I can think of where he like is like overly fan boyish about sister. Charlie the most recent. I know you remember unique Bella. Oh Yeah Yeah. Yeah because he got early or is it. Well we debate about this and I'm always like you know the horses that I ended up loving. Usually I love because they made me money. Yeah Unique Bella that were never a price like what is it. You love about her. You know so I know everybody was on unique Bella before she ever ran. He didn't know about her before the clockers in California she was like one So no I don't know what it was about. Her but classic empire was the one before unique. Bella and I think it's because he had had him very high on his list very early. See I wanNA give a crap for that but I remember thinking about chance. Last summer I got to call his his allowance. Wait a second career start and I I immediately was fawning over. How amazing this horse was and then when he won the Amsterdam by thirty. I felt vindicated because I told everybody what a monster he was. And then you got beat a couple of times. He ran great but The whole Enviro thing I mean I kind of knew anyways but it splits it spoiled a little bit of the greatness factor for for Shanna love. I get where it's coming from with that too. I would have have crowed about an early early participation and it's all in good fun it I mean I I you know. I wish I fell in love with horses as easily the same way Ed does and it's not a right but it's not. It's just different you know. Generally I'll fall in love with awards that makes me money. I don't have a lot of human contact with them in a less. I'm at the track that day. So there are horses at Churchill that I could see first time out and could be strides. Could get that every time out that I would still be in love with so I totally get it shop on a Wednesday show. I talked about the the grind of handicapping long cards. That are just absolutely stuffed with entries and we have that at Churchill on Saturday we also have it on Sunday. And you know that's one of the things for you guys and you know. I'm not cry for yards and Tina here because you guys are still getting paid the handicap talk about but like I know when I finished looking at that Saturday I was like. Oh God there's another one son like it's I can't sit down in one sitting and go through a card like that. I have to spray out into two or three things if I want to be focused because or else by the seventh race. I'm just flipping through the program. So what kind of your approach? When when you have a huge card like that get good question And definitely was thought that when I saw the second eleven race card after getting through the first one but I tend to do it in a little bit of Phases to I go through and I I thumbed through it at first and then I'll start diving in for race one usually. You know there's cases where I'll have to start towards the back because of work having to put in a pick four pick five right up or a conversation. I'm going to have or something but generally I do it in groups of races as well and what I'll do is I'll cap. Maybe let's say the first five races thoroughly maybe get into the six and seven and then I'll go back maybe take some time off. Go for a walk. Do something else work. And then I'll come back and I'll go through. I'll start at race one again but obviously just to get a better. Continue to get a better feel for it but obviously it'll take me very much less time to get through those races because I've already dove deep in. By the time I go through it all several times that I get to the end then maybe go back and do the last part of the car but it certainly not something. I try to do all at once. Either it's very difficult like you said to have the same center of attention for those later races as you will for the early ones that you're doing it in one sitting all at one time as I said on Wednesday show if you're playing a late pick five or something like that leg. Five is just as important as one two and I use the example of Gulfstream last week like even even that late pick five sequence there like I found myself just kind of waiting is I got to the last couple races and kind of just defaulting to our the pretty wide open. You know which as it turned out they were but no. That's definitely the default. You tend to dive in real hard on those first. And maybe you have a single or two and you're feeling good and you feel like I don't need to put as much into this race because I'm gonNA spread and that's a poor attitude. Maybe you find maybe another single. Maybe no you only use to and no I think. That's maybe that's not common but I definitely go through the same thing as you walk because you might be. I mean you very well might say okay look I got. I got up to seventy two dollars. I can spend on the sequence. And so yeah you you. Maybe you're narrow narrow okay. I'm kind of liking this. I can spread now but then maybe you really do like as you said like a couple more now instead you could maybe play it for a few bucks which is a different approach. But I think sometimes when you're if you're feeling strong there and and you know maybe that's the shot you WanNa take to to multiply instead of multiply the the number of Combos but I'm always fascinated by that kind of stuff shampoo with the opening day. Carter questions I realize when I typed it into you guys. I spelled the word to wrong so I typed in. I want to opinions from each of you. For the opening day card Churchill could be realized. I realized that I type. I want to go so so I guess I can only ask for one and if I got playing well occurs the P the first one is. I'm looking forward to race seven. It starts delayed pick visors horse number five same while five the two on the morning line. Three hundred thousand dollar purchase for Bill. Maher that I thought was ran extremely well on debut happened to run in center aisle who is a Bright Star for Chad Brown got hammered windows that day in one very impressively should get better as To get longer but waiting for same watt. Come back twelve leg off twelve to one in this race there was a pleasure second timer through a fake Ravelli second timer and there was this Brown war so this horse opened up. Bill Motte I or you know. Rarely you're GONNA take money unless they're very talented. Opened up at like six or seven to one and really ran well from the outside and look like Mike give central. She could handle and finish second crush the rest of the field. I think she's a town horse and I I've been waiting for come back so that was one thing. I'm looking forward to going to be kind of a horse. I lean on if it rains here. Maybe a little more reluctantly. In the slouches possibility. We should we should bring yes. Yeah yeah so that you know not going to be a great price won't have to win winner anything but we'll be a horse that I'm gonNA lead on a horizontal perspective. And then I think the second one is maybe the obvious one in. That's it's a return of girl. I think it's been interesting talking and talking a lot about this card already before the day of it but so many different opinions on. What's going on here? I know a lot of Sharpei capper's are the stance well. There's been a lot of hiccups. This is the chance that beater off the bench and then people like myself and others as well that are considered sharp. Think well I mean this race was almost written for her you know why would they be bringing her back in the spotlight? This if it wasn't if they didn't think she was gonNA run. Well obviously you know it just seems to me. I'm not going to better to win by any by any respect but I'm not excited to try to beat her. I just feel like there's no reason to bring her back in this. They think she's doing well So I think that race which came up a real strong field. I thought in terms of quality for the level not not not girl level. But you gotTa talk to me for Asmussen for the first time you got fashion. Faux Pas who ran well coming off the bench for Delacour. So it's an intriguing race in. I'm just excited to see my girl back in action. I would argue this. Maybe the most anticipated non stakes Churchill Card in the history of the track. I I don't have a great history here in lable in terms of of many many years of following the non stakes card but it certainly highly anticipated for a number of reasons. And then you add the fact. He got champion coming back. Which which erase where you know. There's a lot of questions. It's not one of those things where she's know one to five and nobody's trying to beat unless they're doing it to be contrarian there are some ways to look at this race where maybe because of the inside draw the time off where the hiccups or the way you're reading the tea leaves to take that. She's beatable it certainly one of the. I think the main overarching themes of the card. Do you or don't you in terms of her and that's kind of the case with with most odds on choices. You kind of have to make that decision do I. Do I just go with it or do I toss and try to beat. Yes no I don't think this is a situation where US monoploy growing anybody else. Think either take a stand against or maybe use a couple of maybe used the rest of them depending on your structure that that'd be the one thing that I you know. In this specific situation you know a lesser signal and a couple of prices or against couple other favorites. I think it's either or not both. Aren't you have capital? Enjoy the the returned to racing under the the twin spires and we will catch up the next week. Sounds good always get time beamer?

On a Friday makes makes by Thursday a lot of fun. I get to sit car nine times out of ten. We ended up. Bs and for ten or fifteen minutes before we get to To do in the segment. Which maybe we should just Hit the play button and always do it that way. And then we it's a longer segment and maybe we'll get some some pearls. There's nothing worse than me than talking to someone on the phone. That's guest before we hit the record by something good comes out. You know something funny here. solid piece of information. It's like Oh we just wasted that. Pearl without putting it on the air Again very excited for sandy opening up had had a good time watching Golden Gate fields even though My single unseated the writer there in the last race. That was No no good but I don't think he was winning anyways but he was sitting in behind like he buy. It had something but just didn't fire. But like I said I was happy. With some of the opinions of the sequencing. We will do a full card. Gulfstream Saturday I'll post it on Friday morning and get you ready for the weekend. I feel like we talked a lot about the Churchill card all throughout the week so I didn't want to do that again but Going forward that might be something. We do stick with Gulfstream. I don't know we'll see but Santa Anita back in the mix today of course Saturday they're their features are a couple of state bred stakes and there's some exciting horses in there. Even though they are state breads but the fourth race is an optional. Eighty that's at the dirt mile in law abiding citizen who won lawmakers mile last year Making his second start off the layoff he ran okay behind flagstaff roadster in the San Carlos so small field but You know he was in contention and I don't know that severed his his best game. But the axe man and Justinian for Bob Baffert Justinian with a couple of winners in a row. Kershaw shows up in this one. A multipliers you. Two two one favourite for Peter Miller. I'm really excited to see how some of these barns in southern California do with this Prolong layoff. I mean a lot of the folks that have been in Kentucky they were running at Oaklawn and and fairgrounds obviously kind of ended about the same time at Santa Anita. But a lot of you know. We're down at Gulfstream as well so I feel like there's a lot more fresh horse fresh horses but horses that at least have a racer to it them over the last couple of months whereas you know looking at golden gate yesterday and then Santa Anita for Saturday. It's just lay off line. Layoff line layoff line. I mean every horses coming off of it seems like a lot of them are just you know early. Mid March and they were all run regularly and now had to go to the sidelines. The sixth race on the Saturday at sanity. it's a state bred sprint at six furlongs for the the boys and three year olds and it's has a first time horse that won first time out any big sweep from Mark Ladd who got pounded at the windows. Everybody seem to know this thing could run? Went right to the front racked up a huge huge speed figure but there is a lot of other speed in this race. And it's all kinda drawn or not all but most of it has kind of drawn right around big sweep And to is inside for the most part he's out in post of nine so But the Horse was outside is pretty quick as well. So I'm really curious to see. One of my favourite angles is going against these big figure. Wire-to-wire types I'm guessing from the money. This horse took and the way that he one word was out that he's a very talented horse. But again running freewheeling against Maine's is just such a different experience than being surrounded for that first quarter or three eighths By a against winning horses. So it's a I think you know a decent opportunity to try to go against that one again horse could be a very big talent but man I just I always want to be against those types Because they just lose short prices so much people get. They see those big figures they get. You know. A lot of them are cocker buzz horses. They just get real worked up about those types and they're always the kind I want to be against the evening. Jewel is the The sprint for three year old cowbridge phillies and kind of the same thing. There's a couple of really nice. You know early wind types. Speedy gee-gee for Andrew Learner broke the maiden at turf paradise went to low sal and one and now goes to Santa Anita Learner. He was shipping a few down low sal and was having some pretty good success He was having a number of them. That ran pretty well so curious to see how that one can go in the big time. War Showtime WHO's won two stakes Interro? There has been a very good horse for Benjamin Sally. One your remember back in like I think it was like five. Oh Six oh seven. The Warren's had like there was a zillion Warren Horses like Warren's this Warren's Bo k Warren's flower Warren Stick Warren's this warrants that and all of a sudden the last couple of years now we've seen a couple of Warren's creep into the the starters starting gates in southern California felt like we haven't seen a lot of them or hadn't seen any of them for quite a while I don't know if he's just one the got out of the business I remember when he was cutting back them because there was a time where there was four or five minute day and they all had that white silk black cap with the Black W or Black Sea or something on them so but anyways Santa Anita back in the mix. Churchill back in the mix. GonNa be fun fun weekend. We Will Gulfstream preview. That'll be up here in a little bit but big thanks to our guests who joined us all throughout this week. John Nichols joins. Kevin Kirstein joins US Eric. Zimny joins us from Dallas Charlestown watched a little charlestown on opening night. Could see see them back and we will have more guests. We will have more racing discussion. We'll talk more handicapping more betting. I got some wonderful questions. If you have topics you'd like to hear addressed whether they be betting or just racing or whatever By all means email me Jason Charles Bima Mail Dot Com. Because a lot of times you guys. Emails provide me with good jump offs. Because what I certainly don't want to talk about the same things that we you know anytime. We're talking about betting and betting concepts or betting applied this particular racism. And we're always going to be kind of in the same ballpark of discussion but You know sequences differ. But I think there's I've gotten great emails with people that have Kinda jarred me towards little side conversations that I think are always interesting so if you have questions on that kind of stuff stuff you'd like to hear about and I'll be the first to say that you know when I don't know or have a theory or or what have you as well but always love to To mix it up with you guys and talk about that kind of stuff Wish you the best of luck with your wagers this weekend and we will see back on Monday.
Why Does The Bay Area Have So Many Microclimates?
"From Cutie. Hello Hello, you're listening to bay curious this week. We've got a weather double header with one of our goto science reporters. This is Daniel Potter for big curious. Who recorded this for us? On a morning stroll with his wife Becca, this is Becca Andrus also I guess for Bay curious. And their little black dog ruth. Pretty warm out here for a little dog that is not a barker, ventured out to the Waterfront Park in Berkeley to set the scene for us about bay area, micro climates and sort of overlooks the bay. Then see straight into. Downtown Cisco. You can see the Golden Gate Bridge. You can see them rent headlines and Richmond over Yonder It's got really amazing views in a spotlight this you can often see a bunch of different types of weather just a few miles apart we're. We're standing. It is perfectly clear. but if you look across toward San, Francisco, there's sort of the the heavy clouds that are hanging down right looks like fog. so I'm sure it's chillier over there, probably a little more overcast, which is more to my taste, the weather is different again. If you're up on Mount Tam or a few miles inland toward concord. which brings us to this week's question asker, so my name is Scott I live in Ohio. Currently I've lived in and around the bay area. My entire life everywhere I go. It seems like the weather's completely different. He sent in this question. which you are dear, audience selected in our may public voting round on Bay. Curious Dot Org Bay area micro climates. Why are there so many? Where are they? How do they differ he music? This is bay. Curious the show that answers your questions about the bay area this week. We're starting off with micro-climates and later on. Islands I'm Olivia Alan Price. Support for Bay curious comes from Sierra Nevada Brewing Company family owned operated and argued over since nineteen eighty proud supporter of independent thought whether that's online over the air or in a bottle more at Sierra Nevada dot com. So micro-climates are familiar to anyone who's gone from one part of the bay area to another or even just a different zip code within San Francisco only to realize you should have brought a jacket, or you're wearing sunglasses when you need an umbrella. Yeah, I grew up in East Bay mother would never let us come to San Francisco without bringing a sweater didn't matter. Matter how hot it was here, this is Darryl. Hess is the author of Physical Geography Textbook and an instructor at City College of San. Francisco Fair to say that he wrote the book on this kind of Bay area phenomenon. He says that's a stretch as to why there's so much variation here s lists. A few factors. One is relocation next to the water. San Francisco is surrounded by water on three sides, which helps, keep it from getting much hotter or cooler than the ocean. The further you get from the water, the less of that benefit you enjoy think of a place in our to inland like livermore, where it's hot in summer and chilly and winter as you go over each ridge in the coast ranges as you move away from the ocean, the weather and And climate becomes increasingly continental and other words. You have less ocean influence has says another factor micro-climates is the terrain like gaps and passes in the hills, so I'm picturing a summer fog seeping through is a lower elevations, almost always it comes in I, right through the Golden Gate and that's the only sea level opening in the coast, ranges, and elevation causes similar disparities in terms of how much rain place gets. Imagine a winter storm making its way east from the ocean. Mountains in its path will kind of shelter places behind them, so a system that dumped several inches of rain on the windward slope of the Santa Cruz mountains by the time it gets further east. San Jose gets just a fraction as much rainfall. We say San Jose's in the rain shadow. Okay so I think we get a sense of why and how the Bay area's micro climates can vary. Could you pin down that question where they are? We're really talking about a continuum in a lot of places, which makes that hard I asked a couple experts. If we could even say how many micro climates Bay has which turns out not to have a tidy. For one thing that term micro-climate, it is a slight misnomer. This is Andrew Elephant, a professor in the Department of Geology and Environment at SF state. His studies focus on micro meteorology so when we talk about Margaret climates to the bay area will actually talking a little bit beyond the traditional scales of micro a real micro-climate might range from about half a mile down to less than a city block, but elephant not generally meant. We toss that word around. We really took more kind of neighborhood to neighborhood scale hall events term for that like how in SF, it's more foggy in the richmond versus sunny in the mission. He just calls it the local scale, so instead of lamenting micro climates. We should say. Local scale climate indeed doesn't quite have the same ring, does it? And then in the broader Bay region, the differences in climate between San Jose Limp Amore and San Francisco and Santa Rosa for example. Is really more at into the MISKEL regional scale of. Okay, so let's shift gears to a different weather question I did promise a weather double header at the top, and another listener sent us this question. Does the urban heat island have any influence on San? Francisco? Bay's weather process. Why don't we start out with what an urban heat island is, so the idea here is sprawling cities with lots of asphalt and not much greenery tend to get and stay hotter days as buildings and parking lots retain more heat from the sun, then vegetation, all offense says you might not often feel it in SF, but it is there. One of my students stood a study of the micro-climate of Golden Gate for example in found that it was on average. Two to four degrees cooler in Golden Gate Park than in the neighborhoods immediately surrounding it. That's degrees Celsius. So seven degrees. Fahrenheit in says, but the effect can be hard to appreciate here next to other more outside influences. It's quite a small temperature difference and the differences caused by the cold ocean air. Flowing in a much greater, so it's very difficult to detect eight island in a place like San Francisco. That said I think there are other parts of the immediate area. San Francisco Bay area that the probably do have more pronounced in the fact. This is Daniel Swain though I'm a climate scientist and I actually have joint affiliations with Ucla the National Center for Atmospheric, research, and the Nature Conservancy of California, San Francisco is relatively small, and because it's surrounded on three sides by water, this city doesn't have the type of asphalt sprawl at most exemplifies urban heat islands, but Swain says the effect could be more pronounced nearby the Silicon Valley, corridor and San Jose in particular I think stand out now along with parts of the East Bay especially Oakland. Okay, so maybe it's easier to discern in those places. The question listeners was. Could it influence the weather? And that does happen in other places right? Yes, on a summer day in Houston. Texas swing says sometimes thunderstorm won't happen, unless it's just hot enough and the only place quite that hot might be an urban heat island where suddenly this big storm POPs up. That's less likely in California, but as someone who models the complex atmosphere, swain says even small nudges can have surprising packs almost anything you can do to change. The initial state of the atmosphere can affect the future state of the atmosphere in sometimes in unpredictable ways, so I would never say never. Swayne did point out one other way San Francisco's built environment can affect the weather in a densely built place like the financial district, the growing number of tall buildings can create wind corridors that affect weather higher up, so you have wind blowing through these these these men me canyons tunnels between buildings, and that that causes the air near the surface to to to mix Salah with the air from above the surface that mixing has decent potential to influence the weather at least a little bit when I'm out walking my dog along the waterfront, looking across the bay towards the city, it might be just enough to change which way a few tendrils of fog are headed next. All right Daniel Potter. Thank you so much for bringing us this story. Thank you as always a Libya. Thanks also to Suzanne Mar for her help, and to both of our question Askar's. Fix. Did you know the number one way that people hear about a podcast is by recommendation from a friend I know that's how I've discovered most of my favorite shows so this week.

Winning trainers Hollendorfer, Wong to collide in Berkeley Handicap
"You're listening to the spoken edition of the San Francisco Chronicle. Winning trainers, Holland or for long to collide in Berkeley, handicap, Jerry, Holland or for won training titles at fifty one Golden Gate fields meetings from nineteen eighty six to two thousand seventeen. Jonathan Wong has won the past two and is well on his way to a third straight at the current fall season. This seventy two year old hall of Famer and the twenty nine year old upstart clash in Saturday's grade, three one hundred thousand dollar Berkeley handicap in which Hollander for runs gee-gee writer and Wong runs. Gobbo's? Macondo and myth. Cal g g writer has long been a large presence in the northern half of Holland or for statewide operation. Winning fifteen of fifty starts fourteen for thirty eight at Golden Gate fields with seven hundred six thousand four hundred thirty nine dollars in earnings Saturday marks his fifth straight appearance in the Berkeley. Handicap having finished second in two thousand sixteen and fourteen third in fifteen and eight in seventeen during one for thirteen slump in GDF's other grade three rd. Races for older horses. Gee-gee writer has won the all American stakes twice and the San Francisco mile. He's lasted a long time. And he's a good solid horse has been very good to us Hollander for said he went for a period where he didn't do so. Well, and now he's doing better. He's well made some of them last a long time and some of them don't Hollander for denies having extra incentive to beat Gabon Macondo whom won- claimed from him for twenty thousand dollars on July twenty seven at the state fair. I don't think of things that way. He said if I'm entering a race. I'm trying to win no matter who's in their Gabon's Macondo followed the claim with wins in a first level allowance and an optional allowance sixty two thousand five hundred dollars claimer at F, and the bulldog handicap at the big Fresno fair I claimed him because he was still eligible for the twenty thousand dollar non winners of two and the first allowance condition and thought he could win that Wong said he's just exceeded expectations. Many trainers wouldn't claim from Holland door for figuring. He was getting all their. Was out of a horse. Personally. I think that's overrated. Wong said I think there is room for improvement on those horses. There are little things you can change and fix to help a horse out myth. Cows owners sent him to Wong after four poor efforts in southern California long. Ran him in seven straight claiming events from sixteen thousand thirty two thousand dollars with two wins. And then myth. Cal finished second in starter allowance and the rolling green stakes before being well beaten in the grade to city of hope mile at Santa Anita. The addition of blinkers has really helped him significantly Wong said he's been a better horse, the twelve Horsfield for the one and one sixteenth mile Berkeley handicap is headed by to southern California invaders with success at Golden Gate fields editor who won the race last year and flamboyant who took the San Francisco mile on March thirty first and there is g g writer who ran one of his best races in fast win on October twenty six my horses have to improve to win. But we'll see said they're both doing well. Larry stoops's. Freelance writer.
