"I mean falls apart coming all split it. I'll give it a right down the middle two point five. I do think there is some interesting commentary being made on the just obsession of male authority figures and like the fact that its military medical. You know because there's a lot to criticize about the way medical professionals some of them harbor a lot of bias sees and withhold medical care from a lot of marginalized groups of people. So i think it's interesting that it's these like military medical personnel and like all these industrial complexes that are obsessed with basically using female bodies as vessels to perpetuate their own very destructive agenda and. Yeah i think there's again these interesting parallels to be drawn about what's happening currently in the world in terms of groups of men being obsessed with controlling people with uteruses and denying people access to bodily autonomy. Yeah so. I think that's all an interesting thing that the movie explores. I think that as far as how effectively it does that that might be a little up for debate. But i think it's i appreciate that. The movie attempts something like that. I don't like how weirdly horny ripley gets for her. Children are alien children. I do appreciate that the main relationship that emerges and the movie that we are rooting for is between two fem presenting beings again. They're not human women but they are for all intents and purposes women. I suppose and that. That's the kind of most compelling relationship between characters and the entire movie Yes so there's some pros and cons of this very bizarre movie. That's obsessed with births. Imagery i will give it two point five nipples. Does that seem to high i. I've i think i'll probably me either. Okay all right And i will give them to the spider that gets shot to death by ron perlman I'll meet you at two point five. I think that there are a lot of really admirable swings in this In this movie and honestly this conversation has been so enlightening and helpful in clarifying some of those swings. And i also i mean i like your interpretation gracie that of of ripley as guide versus ripley as alien grandma And that resolves. I think like a lot of the like cognitive dissonance i was experiencing and i think that that's were. I wish that if that was the the canonical intention. I wish that that was that almost they hit. That'll harder 'cause like that's really like cool journey to track in a way that is clear and obvious i'll piggyback and what you said caitlyn i. I liked that. The the central relationship is ripley in call. I think that connection makes a lot of sense. I liked their mutual rejection of what they've been told about who like who they've been made to be versus choosing shoes like making a choice as an individual. That's also in the interest of the collective at the same time. That's such a difficult line to toe that. It's like the thing that i think this movie. Maybe does the most effectively and then there's a bunch of stuff that's like hit and miss that we have spent the last two hours discussing. So i won't rehash but i i think that two and a half feels good an admirable An admirable swig definitely Movie that like I'd like if not rewards on rewatching. There's definitely shit. You missed if it's been a long time since you've seen this movie and i think it's age in a really interesting way and watch it with friends. Don't watch don't watch it alone. Have a good night with friends. Yeah i'll do two and a half hour. We'll give one to that. Lady that dis. I'll give one to the basketball and i'll give the last point five to ripley eight. I on the other hand that this is a four movie that you both you will get four nipples to aliens. Both of you like something. I would have a couple of years ago. Yeah but yeah. I recognize that maybe a lot of what i love about. This movie is perhaps head cannon and is not necessarily super active in the movie. But i do think that a lot like there's a lot of male gaze going on in this movie direction is very very male gaze and i agree i mean. She's really sexy with the alien. But i feel like what that moment is supposed to be. An israeli sexy. Gordon weavers keeping her is still and moving her head around because she looks like sigourney. Weaver and moving fluid way but It's supposed to be heard choosing between her animal side and her human side and choosing humanity. I don't think that's the script. I think it's just onset. It became very sexy. But i'm gonna i'm gonna throw a nipple at at least subverting born sexy yesterday trope because toss it over your shoulder right into the basketball hoop because you know. And they're really surprised. That that's a side effect. And i'm gonna give i mean nipple to call for all of the reasons just Just i don't know it's winona ryder in sigourney. Weaver being being bad asses in a movie together like that does that. Does that does a lot for me. especially since part of the reason sigourney warning weaver got cast in the first place was from being very tall and everyone who was doing casting like this. I can see. I can see ripley. That's ripley walking in the room. And she like credits. Quote hooker boots about it. So as a short short person i like that. There's also known a rider being about us five three and i'm gonna give a nipple to the baby alien because i love the baby alien so so much and the lighting of the baby alien they apparently had to. Cgi off the umbilical cord when it was walking because it looked like a penis which is a fun little. I love that baby alien fact. There was like a cd thing that had to happen. It was the guy who did the weirdest editing. He'd had to do which. I dislike to me relates. Just a tiny bit. Even though johnson had anything to do with production to joss. We didn't really wanting vision to have a penis and having to be shown what that would look like to be told that is incorrect. That's a sidetrack. And i'm gonna give a nipple to the joss whitney dialogue because you know it thinking about the human being side. I love dialogue like that. And it just may lead character by my ripley being told. I thought you were dead. I get that a lot. that's a nipple for me. That's a nibble from me. Dog think four nipples gracie thank you so much for coming back and for helping us. Thank you for bringing me as a smooth meeting. Yeah happy that you watched it. You can skip three. I mean cute the brain alert about a alien cube. The more i dislike. I'm i don't think i'll ever see the need to see it. No no Where can people follow you online. Checkout your stuff. plug away I'm online on instagram. At greece gallon d. r. a. c. i. e. g. i l. a. m. and right. Now you can watch me and super host on shudder app. It is coming up on spooky season so good time to shut her up.

The patriarchy's fm vast start changing it with the dell earth man would a shit hole damage true. Where's the lie. Whereas the li- i love a movie. Who's last line really thinks they're doing something but actually just serves to remind you that you know nothing about the character. You've been watching for two hours. I have no idea. I've never been here. You're like wow beautiful inspiring and it's sigourney weaver and winona ryder being like. Wow look how pretty it is but it had already been established in the movie. That earth is a shithole. so i don't understand what that's about but then they got the they must have. They landed you know somewhere. Pretty and they they gas let themselves into thinking. It doesn't suck ass here. Which does they shot a version of the ending of the movie with the same dialogue but them in front of green screen with a desolate paris in the background at broken eiffel tower. And like they're like the military is going to come get us in then winner under the writers like will you get pretty lost in a place like this. What do you wanna do. Then it's the same. I don't know i'm a stranger here myself but it's just like desert land paris in the background. That's kind of fun but also much like a lot of thoughts is having this movie. What and why. I am so excited to talk about this movie. That truly i mean for bechtel cast listeners. there's just i think most of the time we have a we have a grip on at least what sort of going on. But this is one of those rare episodes. Where i'm like i. I'm see i'm so excited that we have a wonderful returning guest to To be our little. Titanic lifeboat with the movie alien. Resurrection nineteen ninety-seven aka a movie. That struggled defined watertight compartments to fell men because titanic was shooting next door. Yes okay so really quickly. This is the bechtel cast. Welcome to it. I'm caitlyn toronto. i'm jamie leftist. And this is our show where we examined movies through an intersectional feminist lens using the bechtel tests simply as a jumping off. Point jamie remind me please. What is it. The bechtel task is a media metric invented by queer cartoon as allison. Bechtel sometimes called the bechtel wallace test. there's a lot of versions of it are version is get ready this. We require that two characters of a marginalized gender with names speak to each other about something other than a man for two lines of dialogue and that it has to be a meaningful interaction and we can't get more specific about that. You know when you see it and yes that's basically the test this move. I mean i the the ways in this in which this movie passes are so joss weeden. And i don't really mean that as a compliment and we have a wonderful returning guest. She is an actor. You've seen her in teen beach movie z. Nation and the new movies streaming on shutter app called super host its gracie gillam. Hello everybody thanks for having me back. Welcome back i'll come back. I think we should open this episode. Your rendition of the bechtel cost theme song. Maybe we'll edit that. I feel like that's my gosh. The only the only way i recorded screwed recorded it when you i posted it because i'm weird so we have it. I love that. You don't know what that means to me because every episode that i listened to my boyfriend and i do sing along with the harmonies to the opening number. Dislike like we can't help but have to sing along to the very very catchy opening and you thank you for that. That makes us so happy. You're also sometimes when we watch sex movies. We just sing. It of course shouts out to our friend. Mike kaplan for writing the song and to catherine aka rini voskresensky i singing for doing the vocals Of our songs shouts out to our pals. Yes we Now the song that five years ago around now was being composed for the first time which is so wild caitlyn. I realize that. This podcast is my Longest relationship relationship yes. Well yeah look at us guessing. Wow oh my goodness still in love after all these years. Oh the spar will never die. What is the gift for five year anniversary. I don't know who got actually caitlyn. We have a weekend away. We should finally go to magic mike. Las vegas like we keep saying we will on my gosh. Yes a five year anniversary gift. The the traditional five year anniversary gift is would symbol of strong roots in an enduring relationship. Killing i'm gonna and be like stop university. Baby i'm gonna carve alfred molina's face out of slob of would just a little butter knife. Every time i forget the wood anniversary. I feel like that's a punishment for not being in a relationship long enough. I thought it was going to be like gold rate. It feels like the gifts must worse and worse as here. Relationship goes on what anniversary. I think paper even comes after that which is processed. Would we really. Who made this list papers one of them. And it's this shockingly late. When i think i like fifty years guess. What paper divorce you did it. You can get out of here. Oh my gosh okay so gracie you have brought us alien resurrection. The fourth movie in the alien franchise that came out in nineteen ninety-seven. Tell us about your relationship your history with this film. I brought this movie. And i do not apologize for making you. Watch it for the first time thank you. I had not watched it until june of twenty twenty. I had seen alien. I'm sure some sort of la feeder screening. Then revisited them. I think just because they were on. Hbo max or whatever and watched the two thousand and three director's cut which i think is just wildly better. The tension in the director's cut. I think is so much better than when you wouldn't even like after watching director's cut rewrote. We watching alien is good. It's good but the the amount of like not a lot of movies. I think benefit from long shots of hallways the two director's cut of alien very much does and then they went through and watch more of them including the i alien versus predator and alien. Resurrection is by far my favorite alien movie. And maybe among like easily top ten or fifteen movies for me. I think this movie is doing everything to doing. I know that this is not a popular opinion. Now i love it. I love coming in hot coming. In hut critics have a rotten tomatoes rated this movie fifty four percent. Fresh and the audiences disagreed with a thirty nine percent. And i'm gonna disagree with both of those. It's a hundred percent at least ninety two. I so fascinated. I'm truly so excited. Because i'm like i'm at a point where i'm just confused and so my mind is very open to being changed. I'm open to. I feel like i can be taught here. I'm curious did you watch. Alien cubed the third one. I've seen it. I didn't i knew that caitlin you had it's honestly it's skill bowl like you know like the first episode like people say you can skip the first episode of star wars star wars movies like it's it is pretty simple. You don't know enough to know very much from it but in terms of You watch it and the theme is just ruined in. Your heart is ruined and then resurrection after that is very healing and satisfied. Ooh that's like in in the order. It seems like i did watch a bunch of franchise recap videos just to understand where exactly this is all coming from. Because my history. With the alien franchise which listening i mean basically is all contained in the feet of the show where i've seen alien and aliens because we've covered it on the show. This is just i. This john is so for me. I cannot follow i get confused. Everyone's wearing the same outfit. This is why. I can't do war movies also like i don't know who that is. They're all wearing the same outfit. And when people are on spaceships the whole movie It's like you're saying gracie it's a lot of hallways. I don't know i'm not built for it but it's so fr- like do either of you have a genre or just like a vibe of movie that it's like It's hard for me to connect with. But i want to. I want to and alien resurrection. I mean it certainly held my attention because so much is happening. The tone of this movie for me was so all over the place on the edge of my seat just to see what genre the next scene was gonna take place in. Where like there's like the seed where it's like..

"Me now. First-class father hickson gracie. Welcome to i last fatherhood. Thank you my brother. Rich abuse you all right. Let's start right here. How many kids do you have. How old are they. I used to have four now. Have three kids two girls one with thirty two and other with thirty five and could on the youngster with thirty one. Very cool if you could hicks and just people here if you could just hit my listeners with a little bit about your background and what you do yes i'm coming from the gracie family whose introduce whereas dealerships which to the word in my family is a very interesting family because we all created to be part of a clan of martial artists so the challenge the fresher the de ability to deal with with no. We've our essential bid compete. I'd be will be very much Dedicate my parents. Dedicate data lives to butte up atlanta of fighters family being traditionally involving martial arts this the beginning of the century when the japanese champion jiu jitsu comey arrived in brazil to reside in become like a immigration process manager so becomes friends of my grandfather and then he started teaches you to chew my uncle which the older brother off the five brothers of the plan and then he started learning shoot sue and then he best through the family and they opened the first school in nineteen twenty five in rio de janeiro. Brazil and since then we've been traditionally involved in martial arts to develop the not only the ability to fight also the ability to provide self confidence and in breaking a lotta beneficial aspects for the community through the self defense of jusitce. Yeah there's no doubt your family is responsible for so many people around the world. Millions of people taking up the practice of resumes jitsu. It's exciting to see so many kids getting involved in it nowadays to and that all goes to your family Taking back to the beginning of your fatherhood journey here hickson about. How old were you. When you first became a dad and had to becoming a father kind of change your perspective on life so i was young like twenty one year old and then i have my first kid which was like amazing transformation in my life because you know you become only a father where you become with a purpose of raising the kid the best you can and make him just like you and try to bring all the elements you have in a personality in your culture to bring to favor the cage for him to become the best can be any possible representing the family and jiu. So what's amazing transformation in my head. Yeah one of the things. I love to ask the dads as far as discipline. I know one of the things up brazilian you. Gypsy was the disciplined. That it requires the practice disciplinarian. Are you as a dad with two kids growing up. And is that different than the discipline style that you grew up with yet discipline. Kids don't like discipline. They don't like you know become like of a system. They wanna improvise. They wanna be happy. They wanna play. When is a serious thing so they wanna be like into their own patron. I liked to combine that kind of friendly attitude. To take care of my kids without too much pressure with the enthusiasm they should have choo choo call to cope with dan necessities of few their purpose so for me. I have to be rather. I have to be a good friend. I have to be a good support there in danvers. so i always give advices. I always make them feel like they deserve what they get. Because one of the problems i feel like is. Sometimes you spire your kid because you love them so much and you bring gifts without reason you bring something for them to few your love but your love coming. We've some kinda. I'm balanced situation because they don't have to receive gifts because you love them or because you think them cute so i i make sure in my when i deal with. My kids is always about like that skate. Oh yeah that. Can you bite me. Skateboard is great. Okay that school. So let's see what color you like. What wheels what. This that will be nice. You can jump here and there okay. Great but what you wanna do shooting. Serve this that i can. I can put the trash out i can. I will speak well with my sister. I wanna be nice. Which my mother. I gonna put my shoe. Wherever that their are built. I mean wherever. They need to cope with some kind of process of feeling they deserve it. They they received something. But i keep i keep the trash out to think for the whole week or clean the car i helped my father choo choo. Whatever the chores are it's not about pressure but is about for them to fuel. I deserve the bike. I make so then you give them a sense of empowerment a sense of responsibility in terms of in. I like to in anna anna trail where they love to be so they comes naturally each like to play soccer. You don't like to play. Soccer is no. It's not about discipline and make him. he has to do it. So the discipline is more to follow with their senses in terms because penned up the day you have to follow. Father has to be smart enough to provide for keeping clarinet for him to feel comfortable and for him to few weeks motivated for him to few excited to accomplish. Thanks him too. Few notice about lack has done so the parent guide the kid about no. I know the direction you should go out about. That is about wherever you wanna go. Let school which intelligence. let's go. we've discipline. Let's go with respect. Let school with we strategy. Let's go with a game plan. Let school we motivation. So all the elements the positive elements choo we embrace their mission that desire so especially those days which a lot of information on the on. The kids heads is important for for the parent. Be a friend enough to disclose to do to achieve greatness or get better so i feel like this is part of the game is not about imposing. Discipline is about fakey. He understand how important is to have discipline his life to achieve anything very well said hickson and definitely a message that we need to know. We see a lot of entitlement from a lot of kids today. And it's causing a lot of devastating. I know we live in this culture. Now where it's every kid gets a trophy nafil. Philosophy has been really a colossal failure especially here in the united states so definitely working to achieve success is definitely more rewarding when you work for something then as opposed to what it's given to you so i love what you say there and then i'm going to jump into your book here. Breathe a life in flow. But one question i have. I know. obviously you've had unfortunately lost one of your children. I've had several dads on the podcast here that i've had the bury their kids at the most uncomfortable conversations to really have because it's a devastating war deal What was the process like for you. Writing the book and going back into this experience of finding out losing your child. What was that like for you. Is it difficult to get through as you writing the book. And how was that process. This process of this process was really something which make review one more time. All the elements all did sadness all the all the that the emotional tragedy. I went through but also make me remind how they went and survive this kind of this kind of storm and today i feel like i'm happiest than i ever been. Because somehow i leveraged myself should become reinvent myself to rebirth because you cannot just call 'em follow up with the tragedy like that thinking you strong enough to take thinking strong enough to just okay. That's going to be fine. Let's focus at my work. you cannot put yourself. We've a distraction. You have to really go into the debt.

"There is just. They're all about displaying their art. they're all about. There's no time limit. There's just whenever the time is right for them to end the match. That's when they're going to end it. That could be five minutes. That can be thirty seconds. That can be two hours. These guys are willing to fight to the death. That's just how they think so It just happened. This hap- this event that i'm going to speak on right now. Which if you're not familiar with is just an awesome awesome story so grab your popcorn. Sit down we're talking hickson gracie history right here. This is history towards the end of hixon's career. He started some matches. He started his career in japan and he won two consecutive tournaments in a row and after that and he won them like super easily lonzo. He wanted like he just creamed everybody right all right and so after that it almost seemed like the japanese audience and the japanese matchmakers were just intent on Finding a fighter to beat hickson and they didn't really have anybody that they could match up with him so what they would do. They still seem to do this a lot over there. They found their best professional wrestler. And in those days and even these these today in days now like right current days some of these guys dabble in shoot fighting. They do a little jujitsu. They do some judo but they in japan they consider them fighters even though they do fixed fights. You know what i mean. That's what pro wrestling is. They already agreed upon their to win the match. Just make up. What happens as they go along right right so whoever. I can't remember the name of of japan's lumber one pro wrestler at that time but he called hickson on tv and hickson responded with a message and he basically said you know what. I don't participate in fix fights. I only do real fights so and it just happened at. That message was put out. When hick was in japan hicks was his japan. This pro wrestler tried to capitalize on that called out hickson hicks. Like you know what. I'm not gonna do that. I'm out of here. I'm going back to the united states at that time hickson already had a cat in. La and he was very successful at it. He had already won two mixed martial arts tournaments in japan and back in those days. It was like you got to win three fights in one night right so fast. Forward hixon's comes to japan back from japan when you can call him. The disciple of the professional wrestler that originally called out hickson and this guy's name was yoji angel- yolanda was another pro wrestler who was highly regarded. He was a lot younger than the previous wrestler. That called out hickson. But on japanese media he called hickson and he said i'm going to the united states and i'm going to go wolf picks in so many words so a camera crew flew with your g to the united states. They go to la. They freaking a bum. Rush hicks academy and hickson. Students are are in there and they're panicking because they're all just trying to bum rush the academy the doors and one of them in particular is looking for so somebody at the academy calls hickson hickson buncha. Japanese pro wrestler. Just showed up. There's a there's a bunch of camera crews out here. Would you want us to do hickson. Says try to keep them outside Pro wrestlers to come in but keeps the media out all right so now. They're in the doj they're in the academy hickson has the The windows blackout and again..

But that doesn't mean that all children of entertainers go into the entertainment industry. What do you think. Lead you on your path to getting behind the camera. Differing from your father rather than being front. I was always interested. I mean i played. I played soccer australia. When i was in school of very my mom's side of the family very sporty. What other go. I grew up in the theater. My mom had a theater company. Belva straight she worked at. Dad was doing lot applies. My oldest miranda was acting. I would make little short films that at high school on Scholefield code kill blogs. My of year school thing decided to go to film school.

School went to sydney film school. We'd like to. When i was seventeen to two four zero or something you know. It's it's an interesting thing to bring up for a second and we'll get to you in a second but like some people have different versions of what they do or don't like from film school. Was it a positive experience for you. Did you find it collaborative or did you. What was what was your highlight of your film school experience. I loved it because i didn't go to university. 'cause he couldn't go in exchange for like three years to film school and this was a year and a half course where basically you got to Pitch as a director on the eating going for directing editing. You kinda went for everything so you would do like full films in the first half of the year but one of them had a major role the director at a production designer. And then you have a minor role editor assistant or something like that so that was really good. Because you've got to learn about all the different departments. I obviously went pretty hot on a peach on the first one to get direct. Up is also competed right and then we didn't know document and we would contain ford. I think i was an editorial on documentary about italian. Best coming to australia But never really the documentary teachers. A great they did a lot of kind of social dot. Snap wasn't really style of documentary. I was interested in. And then i was in canfield testable reynolds twenty one and gone michael. Why and i think. I just thought i'd be at a get. A fate. trumpeted takes like ten years whereas a documentary always sidelight documentaries like jumping out of the plane. You've got access. You got a camera you could get going. Then you figure out how to funded whereas a feature film kind of spend ten years in development trying to get it up so every team you know. He was like going to yoga. I not going to be also.

"Can you imagine a kid saying that. He was drawn like a magnet to trouble that he could easily could have avoided. This imbalanced concerned me because it took hawks out of a zone of comfort and put him constantly. On the edge i was not just watching another aggressive gracie growing up watching someone with an unbalanced mental approach to life when kim tried to raynham in he became rebellious and defiant towards her. This caused strife between came in me because she did not want her kids to be gracie brawlers. She'd hoped that the move to america will put them on a different track but it was too late hawks and was already on a self guided mission to be the greatest gracie of his generation reckless. Yes but forever a fighter. Then we get to early. Nineteen ninety-three horan's dream of bringing valet tudo. Fighting to america to showcase jujitsu was about to come true. He asked me to meet with him and his student. Hollywood director john milius and told me that they had backers for the ultimate fighting championships. America's first valet tudo event. Finally an opportunity for me to make a name for myself in america. This was the opportunity there have moved to the united states for now. It was reality when hori and told me that he wanted our younger brother. Hoist to fight in the first tournament and keep me as a backup in case he lost. I was disappointed. So there you go there the first. Ufc yes you must have thought that you were going to be the guy. I was sure about that. You know. I was sure i was the one who represents the family and then will come with the news. Voice will do because if he lost you came up you come up back up and stuff. I felt a little.

"I guess a knife. We fight with globe fight without so we start to become more open. Mind so we've come to america after especially after hoy's kick ass on the ufc people start to say. Wow what this kid did with the. He's he so people wanna learn jujitsu but they also want to compete in. it's when competition becomes bigger than the actual platform for learning receipts. With self defense the protocols the technical protocols for spending technically these units were not there just brazilian communist. We've experience fires to to experience for how to fight. And they come here and display and fight so in many grace's zhizn academies or brazilian sheets academies people teach how to pass a god. He people teach how you choose to choke were foot lock but they don't teach retention arrangement control knife attacks and fighting result glows fight striking so because that lack of information competition shoots becomes much bigger than the self defense shoots and now brazil anyone can do. Brazilian shoots can fight can pass. God can do sweeps but not anyone knows the total grace's utes which self defense and more elaborate techniques for self defense like the law enforcement programs or situations which require more techniques so that's basically today is a big difference. When people refers grace's zhizn they go more towards the traditional aspect of the art and and when they talk about brazil you. It's really recognize as competition. But they say they are the same. We've lack of information in both sides because sometimes now you see self defense academies who have no fighting skills they more like self defense and the other academies they have fighting skills but they have zero self defense is important movement to bring those together for the perfect academy. Become a center of knowledge and practice for competition. Not only competition or not only self-defence. Yeah i i don't know if this is positive or negative but i just i just referred to all of this as you do now yes i don't even i don't even say brazilian i don't say gracie but it's just to me. Jujitsu is all of it. I agree and that's not just me. I should say that's when i talked to everybody in the community. They just say jujitsu. So used to have to say well. It's different as gracie just because you had japanese jujitsu and all these other now. Jujitsu is us. What your dad may. My federation ju jujitsu global for the rations. No bj or no self as you is. B.j is as usual jitsu. Do you think that some of the confusion also comes. From 'cause you have like gracie academy of gracie baha of gracie who might. There's so many like officially named academies in places that have gracie in it. Yes in question is if you you. What do you think that that adds to the confusion. You know for people so tempt so we ended up. How did we end up eventually. Just calling the juju to do you think that added to the confusion of the separation right now. The situation becomes very very Complex because the brazil's usually through states four tournaments and competition the gracie shoots mar traditional and jujitsu embraces. Everything i believe talking about as you to is the perfect way now to deal with the situation because is just jitsu and and how you practice will make the determination if you wanna be a fire if you wanna be a police officer if you wanna be just a a practitioner air if you wanna compete so all this. There's usually took degrom which i believe. Now he's from here to the future becomes usually to do do you find are dino anything about like grace gracie baja comes off as one that they focus have heavy on competition. Yes it is that..

Why Growth at Grayscale Exploded in the Last Quarter
"It's recently quarterly report gray scale announced record inflows. Tell us about that. So on a quarter, we'd be says, our team puts out a report that looks back at investment activity across the gray scale family of products over that most recent quarter in we try and break down for the investment community which products have inflows, which products more popular than others, what the breakdown is different types of investors any other trends that we're seeing amongst our investor base. and. Though regularity, these reports have really allowed them to become almost the defacto sentiment indicator for investment in the days in in two this year, we raised over nine hundred, million dollars in just that second quarter, and that was on the back of raising over half a billion dollars in Q. One this year. So we're really seeing influence into the gray scale products at a record pace. And that's almost double. What do you think accounts for the massive increase in interest? I think that the macro environment is causing a lot of investors to focus on Crypto in a way that perhaps had before I think one of the most topical things that investors are talking to us about is unlimited quantitative easing and as they look at how much the Fed and other governmental bodies are printing, they're really starting to drill into the verifiable scarcity of assets like get. Coin and when you think about that very important attribute that bitcoin has and then you combine it with bitcoins uncoordinated nature and it's not just bitcoin. Right? It's other digital currencies as well. Investors are starting to appreciate that there is a new in uncoordinated return that they can maybe get from having exposure to digital currencies, and now the timers in a lot of investors digging on the space. and. So when you talk about the quantitative easing that does, of course, immediately bring to mind bitcoin because of the cap on its supply and when you started your answer, you were talking primarily in Bitcoin or about bitcoin but I wondered how the interest in the currencies was spread out. Is it? Eighty percent in Bitcoin or you know what are you seeing in terms of the interest across the various crypto sense? So Greasy now has ten different investment products and a great deal bitcoin trust is our flagship product. It's been around the longest. It's our largest no question about it We've seen a market uptaken interest across the other products. So in particular, I'd highlight in cute too. We saw a lot of interest in the gray scale at theory and trust. In really seeing more investment really coming in across the board and I believe now of our returning institutional investors, we now see over eighty percent of them having now invested in more than one race cal product meaning they. Now you have exposure to more than one digital currency and it's interesting to think about that audience because for many of them, Bitcoin is their first foray. It's the place that they're most comfortable with it done the most research on typically it's what gets them comfortable and gets them to give their telling the space, and we're now releasing a growing trend of investors not just wanting acquainting exposure, but they actually see diversification benefits of having more than one crypto currency exposure in their portfolio. And when you said that if him was another one of the assets that was gaining a lot of interest what's driving that because the theorem does not have a cap on its supply. So I was curious to know why they were focusing on that out of all the other non bitcoin assets. Well. I think BIRLA investors at theory like coin has a lot of staying power on it to like acquaintance overcome a lot of adversity and I think investors are starting to drill into some of the east cases around the theory. powering defy and a lot of other new applications which theory is really targeted towards where I think for more investors thinking about Bitcoin, they're really thinking about it more along the lines of digital gold or a digital store of value. And who is coming to you now, are you seeing interest from new groups and what types of investors are coming to gray scale? We'll still gracie obeys assets primarily from institutional investors. So we deal primarily with accredited investors. So it does include a lot of high net worth individuals and. Family Office is financial advisers but believe the vast majority of the actual dollars that we're getting are coming from the hedge funds on and then other types of institutions, endowments, and pensions, and I think one of the most things we actually broke this out in some reports. This year is that the allocations aren't coming from any one kind investor I. Think you know for a lot of folks bitcoin digital currency investing its momentum traders or it's for funds that really only are experienced in investing in technology or In. Venture capital things that are really on the riskiest end of the spectrum in Farrah's when we look at the actual mandates of our investors, it's everyone from global macro funds to value funds to risk arbitrage funds. Any every single kind of investor mandate is represented in the gray scale investor bays, which I think the takeaway is. Digital currency investing is certainly not for everyone is risky too early days you know a lot of investors need to have a patient in kind of medium term horizon for their investment, but it does that mean that it's something that everyone should at least be considering and we're already seeing empirical data that it's making its way into the portfolios of investors of all different kinds of mandates.
Not feeling sick, man tests positive for COVID-19 only after contact tracing
"People find contact tracing to be an invasion of their privacy. McComas Denise Whitaker tells us how it worked out Well for one man. There are certainly a lot of criticisms of contact tracing, but Peter Rosen Burger tells me He would not even have gone to get tested. Had it not been for that phone call he received from a contact Tracer. I first introduced you to Rosenberg er back in April, when he was really working hard to avoid getting covert 19 from his wife, Gracie. She has survived decades of health issues, including losing both her legs. Peter's been there every one of those almost 35 years as her full time caregiver. He nursed her through covert 19 which hit greasy really hard, And now that he's got it, he tells me he wouldn't have even known it had it not been for that call from a nurse, telling him he had been in contact with someone who tested positive would not go to the doctor. For what I feel right now. If I didn't know that I had Cove in 19 and I've got all the symptoms of Ah, you know, bad case of being out in the barn moving hay around. I'm glad I know because it gives me a little bit of extra buffer down for people because I don't want to spread the sea buddy. He is now sleeping in the guest room for his 10 days of quarantine. And he's also doing everything he can to try to boost his immunity by drinking lots of extra water on taking supplements.
My Rare Disease Does Not Define Me
"I'm joined today by singer, songwriter and patient advocate, Gracie van brunt formerly based in Los Angeles. Gracie moved back to the Boston area before the Kovic pandemic. She's the recipient of the two thousand thirteen rare champions of hope patient advocacy. Award. From the nonprofit advocacy group global jeans at age two, she was diagnosed with a rare disease that I'm going to let her pronounce, and even before the pandemic, she was an expert at social distancing. She is here to share her story and her art welcome Gracie Hey. Thank you so much for having me what an amazing introduction. Thank you so much for being here. We're I'm really excited. This is gonNA. Be Fun. Yes, I'm so. Yeah you too. All right. So can you tell me about your disease and how is it pronounced? Yes. So it's called Schwartzman. Diamond. Syndrome. Like a Walkman, but just with an ass and then I'm in just like a like a diamond gem and then syndrome and it is a very rare disease that only affects I think around like five thousand people in the whole world how and I was diagnosed when I was two and now I'm twenty five. So it's a genetic chronic disease that is currently incurable. We are working on a cure for it, which hopefully can be developed soon, it is also life threatening. So the main aspect of the disease is your bone marrow and a lot. Lot of patients with SDS as we like to abbreviate, it have bone marrow issues where their bone marrow fails and We don't have enough blood counts really like we don't have enough platelets, not enough white cells and not enough red cells, which basically makes up your immune system So we get sick a lot quicker than a normal person would and we also a lot more prone to getting leukemia, which is a blood related cancer, and so the point of getting a bone marrow transplant would be to eliminate that risk. Let's start to talk about this and dig in Can you tell me about your song run ron run because I'm kind of obsessed. It's pretty great. Thank you. Run run run is a song that I wrote about my disease and having to live with it and confronted every day and The first line is my disease does not define me, but recently it's all I. can see and that is because three years ago in twenty seventeen, I got like a huge Epstein Barr virus. I just got really sick from having the Epstein Barr virus, which kind of like was the catalyst to me getting my heart transplant to use later, and so it's kind of just about having to actually confront my disease head on. which is something I haven't had to do for a long time because you know growing up after all of my hospital stints. I got gradually better and I was able to kind of dislike, put my disease into a little box and leave it there and On. A kind of live my life as a normal person. A. and. So when I got this Epstein, Barr in two, thousand, seventeen, it was a huge huge hit to my system. I was extremely sick for a few months and that ultimately led to me having to get a transplant but. Up, until then, I. You know I could be a normal teenager like do normal activities and. not really have to put a lot of emphasis on my body or my health. But because of this catalyst I'll say Really really. Forced me to take my disease out of that little box. I had it in and really really face it. So the chorus goes. To run run run just like I've always done and I leave it alone. But I, have nowhere else to go which is me really just like having to confront the fact that you know I'm still sick I will never be a normal bio typical person and I have to do this transplant for like to better my own quality of life and Just. Focus on. My health more than anything. So that's pretty much what it's about, and then like a little fun fact is. I had already written it before I got the news about my bone marrow transplant. So I had my doctor's appointment on December twenty, fourth two, thousand eighteen, which is like Yay, Christmas, time such great news. But so I had my doctor's appointment, and I already had like a little demo of this song done because Louis is my boyfriend and he's a wonderful producer and we had already been working on Um songs for my upcoming EP and then we'd already done this one. So the first thing I did when I came home was I actually just listened to this song to make me feel better. Because, it's just like it was just the best remedy for me because it is exactly how I felt in this. Little compact. Song.

Summer Wildflowers With Carol Gracie
"I asked when we spoke I. Don't know a few years back upon the publication of your book spring wildflowers of the Northeast The sub pad on the cover of the new book. summer book as on the old one, says unnatural history and I'd like to know what that means. Tell people what that means. Well. It means looking beyond just the beauty of the flowers and learning about how they fit into the environment. And what their importance is to insects or birds or other animals? And sometimes to other plants as well. So, I like people to know how these plants work in the environment. What their what their roles are. You encourage us. I think in the tax in the preface of the book you encourage us when we're looking at Alzheimer's to almost act as a as a burder does when watching birds yeah. Yeah I do because it's not just checking off that you've seen a Canada Lily for example. Or you've seen. Have Sparrow. It's really observing what organism is doing. And there are still things to be learned about even our local wildflowers. That, have not been observed because people just think well, they're common. They've been here forever. Anything that is known about the must be must be written already. But yet if you just take the time and patience to sit there and watch, you could discover something new. And you'll discover something interesting. Fit Your your book in the title and Zeroes in on the northeast, but we should say where that is because it's not a small area, the northeast in terms of ripe. Thank you for doing that. I'm using the concept that was used in gleason and Cronquist, which is the manual for vascular plants of the Northeast and his concept of the north. East goes from southern Canada. Down along more or less than Mississippi River down to. Northern Missouri and across into Kentucky. And So it's a big area I've. Had People say oh I'm from Virginia I'm I'm sorry? I can't buy that book because it doesn't have any of my plants in. But these plans are awesome. Ranging and many of them are in the Midwest and in the. Northern part of the south as well. so for example one. That's in the book. I don't know how you managed to choose I. Mean because there's a lot of plants out there in that regional area that are bloom in the summer from early. To late. But you. You picked A. How many are there in the bucket their third year? Omni Arthur There are more there about thirty five, I, think. More than that, because in some chapters I cover many more than one species. Of Related Species for instance. Right, so for instance you chose Common Milkweed, and there are other milkweed Zvi chose common milkweed, and that is over a far wider range than what we just talked about. Right and that goes even beyond the. Northeast Important! For many reasons, I'm sure all of your listeners are familiar with the milkweed monarch story, but it has many other interactions with other insects in particular. Right make it fascinating to me. So. Let's talk a little bit about that. The species is so it's a sleepiest. Dhia Syria which may sound surprising because it indicates that it comes from Syria. But in fact, that goes back to a mistake that was made back in the sixteen hundreds. When this plant was first brought back to European. To describe. And they it as being the same as a plant that had been discovered in Syria. And thus they lump it into that same species, which is opossums, Syriac Him And, when lineas realized that it was a different. Genus that it was far different from a possum. He'd put it into a different genus asleep, but by the rules of botanical nomenclature he had to keep the the second part of the name, the specific epithet.
Gov. Andrew Cuomo says New York has endured ‘21 days of hell’
"But here's a quote from Cuomo in a play the audio I don't read too because I'm looking at it I think it's really interesting he says we're back to where we were twenty one days ago twenty one days of hell but here we are no I I think that's interesting because there's a lot of information out there we talked about it last week and if you missed the episode last week of this coronavirus special you can check it out at W. A. B. C. radio dot com and all of the core of our specials are listed there but we talked about how M. I. T. has suggested that the hot spots in New York City may be directly related to the subway system and I find that interesting because when you go to I don't put a target they let X. amount of people into the store most stores are leading X. amount of people into a store and if they hit that that number you got to wait outside while you're inside six feet apart six feet apart six feet apart right okay but they didn't do that in a subway now you had the mayor who had police you have Cuomo as MTA police of Cuomo who's in charge of the subway system do you think for a second that they could have said let's put some offices they're saying all right we're only letting X. amount of people in on to the platform for the next coming train all right U. ten U. twenty U. hundred whoever it is you guys go and make sure you stay six feet apart and then wait for the next group all right that's good the same way they do it when I want to go by you know Michael your products at the at the Walmart or the target even though they had does it so my thought is why couldn't these guys these geniuses in in Gracie mansion and here in the city what why could they not figure this out
Why iLes New Album, Almadura, Is Both Departure and Evolution from Calle 13
"That was master from Elise Laura for the Puerto Rican singer and songwriter. Music has long been a family affair as a teen. Her brothers recruited her to become a member of guide. The dossier together they've won. Three grammys and twenty-one Latin grammys away has spent the past few years reintroducing herself as a solo artist and along with resident her brother and bad bunny co and performed a few lundahl. Scoot Yose the song that became the anthem. Puerto Rico's protests. Listening to Alamo Laura. It is clear that La like the island. She loves is recognizing the dots of her own strength. Welcome to New York City. Thank you good to see you and your hotel room. Thank you for making this work. I appreciate your your released. A motor prior to the protests. Ousting the governor your lyrics I saw in countless protest signs. My friend ANA lives on the island and she calls among Laura a premonition. Ooh I heard that little Very Super Gracie for me. Because maybe the only thing I can think of is like when you wish something so bad and then suddenly becomes reality. I think that might be what happened. Because I'm I've always had this frustration. Not only about a colonial status and how we see things but the thing that froze therese me the most is when I I start seeing the people thinking that they're not enough that they are not a capable of doing anything that we need dependency and for me. That's not part of our essence and I can see so much more From the three. Can People that what we see ourselves and for me. That was my biggest frustration. And what made me write this songs? Did you always see the islands relationship to the US that way or did you have an a Ha moment? I've always seen it because thanks to my family like we all share assange the same ideals and and I remember having that teenage moment of questioning myself if I actually believed in independence or if it was just because my family believes in it and I remember having that moment and realizing that yes I do believe in independence and I little by little. I've been appreciating more who we are what we have and even though Puerto Rico has been a colony for so long our identity still remains and that is something that we should recognize and wonder why does our identity still remains. And that's maybe has to do with the moment. We are leaving now. Sharpening the knives became the anthem of the protest. How to come together? Well I suddenly received a call from my brother that they were just doing this song. I mean it was almost like one day to another and they told me to write the chorus. He just send me the beats that were made through. I had an idea about like what it was going to be about because we were all very angry about the whole situation. But I didn't hear what my brother road or by Bonnie and neither my brother I mean we were all like on our own writing what we were feeling. But since we're Puerto Ricans. I think we were sharing that same anger and we were fears. You know with everything that was going on and we just expressed our cells in different ways. And that's how it all came together and They just told me about the the knives concept so I I just like road what I felt and and the melody and everything but he was like very from the heart. What did it then feel like to listen to that song? Play in the streets. In that moment it was amazing. Especially because the people just knew the Holy Rick's like did they after so are the same day. I don't remember but it was crazy. But at empowering you know I mean Puerto Rico must have a lot of political songs. But we don't know about them so much and I think in that moment we were just like seeking for something that we could and
Test Kitchen Manager Gaby Melian on Empanadas
"Welcome back to the PODCAST. Thank you so much excited. I'm you know what I am. I'm super hungry. I've never been so hungry for cast. I'm looking at these glistening crispy. Golden Brown empanadas is in the middle of the table. And I can get one you of course different once again tell you I. A couple of these have A little bit of sugar got like my grandmother used to put my like. I duNNo. She needed for us so it gives it an extra layer of sweetness and then I read a couple of a couple of people helped me through the ripple. Yeah that's the way you crimp it To show the Francis sometimes they do that depending on the field. Lean gene. You know when you go to the stores they have different ways of closing them. So you know if it's chicken and beef and cheese of whatever pressure beating one two the only one but now I'm talking about my mouth twelve. It's all right. That's what I told everyone. Adam wants to chew on the micro comment or no no. No I mean come on. Everyone does okay. You've done chew videos for us. WE WANNA one with Bradley. Only at your first video ever Dow one was my father's. There's time in front of a Combo being part of the video. Yes we'll read. What was that like? I was really nervous during seem nervous. No I know but I thought it was going to lose my voice Because when I get emotionally I lose my voice and you know the difference and I was just trying to talk and let's talk about that so brad is I'm GonNa say six foot four Gabby is what are you short of one. Actually my past five to what are you. What are you barefoot? Five five okay right. But I'm shrinking but thinking that we all are but brad does that thing where you kind of like spreads his his legs out and he kind of gets a low on the counter because you know can be the same kind of way was he. Did the video. Was it easier than you thought it would be in terms of doing doing it or it was fun I was. I was hard to follow him. You never know what to expect to him but it was fun and I feel like I I was able to talk about. The empanadas and people are super excited in Argentina that I actually was representing so I think it went. Well did you get it. Comments from people in Argentina. Oh yeah yeah from. I add From South America in general or over specially from Argentina. Some of them were like oh well in my town. We don't make them like these. Because inside Argentina. We have different types of bananas. We have like the ones from the north. They wants from the south of the center. That's where I'm from one side is so these are called for ten years because if you're born in one side is your potential from from the port of so you know we are very opinionated people you know I would Argentina's in general we are like. Yeah no I do it this way. Do it that way. Some people is because if you need like racing's or not and some people say oh these gusty and it has all leaves but for me Dania. Has You're going for the second one people aboard. He's having the second one. I make them kind of a small. So let's start with the ones on the plate now. which is the first video of you and Brad from his? It's alive series. This is a ground beef. EMPANADA beef typical tenure. You have raisins in Maher racing's or leaves on our lips the ground beef of obviously grabbers on yawns and then in you'll have oregon o q mean salt pepper. A tiny bit of sugar a little bit of public for Koehler. That's what makes that juicing using US and then I put a hint of Cayenne pepper for heat because I hear people tend to like hear a little more. We're not really into hot spicy spicy. I think it's nice to have a little bit a little sugar just a balanced. Yeah okay so in that first video the what I noticed right away was you made me feel okay about not making my own dough. Oh no totally I mean empanadas reveille eaten in. Let's say typical family probably might WANNA say once a week maybe every other week. But he's something that you get together with friends and you order out. We have great places that sell. NPR's and they deliver. There are some places that they do. Only empanadas can niqab any flavor in the world. You can imagine and in other places a habit Sonnen Pinellas so you either order or you make your own so people people are like no within their friends for their feeling but you will not find anybody that is going to make Bacon Bananas making their own doll. Because he's such a long process. It's not even worth twenty minutes later. Everybody item so we have really good a star Bought doll that it comes already pre pack and we use that. I mean if someone tells you that making their own doll deadline I think this take this impression. Like in Italy for instance there's a ton of Italians in Argentina that everyone makes own pasta scratch every night and this is not the case. No no no no we have also with with really good. Pass the places that you go buy. Fresh passed away the Kilo- All Dogs we do a my rather is makes the best pizza pizza. People make at home on Saturday nights. Yeah the guys make beats a home. Friday nice nice very common. You all do some house. And they make the you know don't beat Sally Gracie B. of the best pizza all right. So I WANNA make empanadas at home. What sort of dough should I buy? Whichever using if I'm not making my own these is when he's gone he's gone on? It's like you can buy it in any supermarket. Basically actually when when I publish which member be on February of two thousand seventeen one of the things that Rick Martinez was sculpting with was to fact checked. You know like find out if you can really really find these doll everywhere and it is. It's really easy available. You can even know that it on Amazon. What doty's does it? It's called Empanada or it says in English turnovers doll right. No I see them watching my Guy Jones happy so be any Spanish local local market if you live in a neighborhood that some sort of Latino community I'm sure they're having go yeah though They have different ones. They have some for Frayne gene and they have Colombian door that is completely different. Because he's make with Like sort of like cornmeal completely different because those refrain gene so these one is actually at says For BANARAS for waking I need it comes from Uruguay. Actually it comes. They'll comes from European Goya packages here in New Jersey near my house. All right so but if you don't have these you've done us any puff pastry and caroline can circles rounds. And that's it. Because he's very similar to puff pastry so for this one. For the filling you were browning. The ground beef seasoning thing it and then you took out the ground beef from the pot and then you put the onus on the papers. That's one way of doing it. I think when we publish the recipe we the first on and a and then we moved them out. You can either either either way for me. It's faster to do the one part and the meeting. Another the reason why I do it that way because I used to make three hundred hundred panels every weekend when I was selling them. Okay we're GONNA get to that first. Let's get to the ground beef. Onions and red peppers seasoning seasoning cumin sake and releases all these juice and makes it sweat. That's the flavor you're going for. You cut out rounds with a pastry cutter or news. Come already already come on. We got anything and they come with these little plastic in between doing so. They don't get stuck one way or the other see. That's what I noticed. I noticed when you took the felling but first of all you want a cool the feeling feeling you can even freeze the feeling. My mother used to freeze the feeling abortions. And then it's much better because when you're baking it Y- releases all that water all the Jews even better. Yeah so you were using like a little like ice cream scoops because I like to measure you know. I don't want one every Empanada have the same amount. I'm also so far of not putting your leaps keeps anti-lien so I wanted on a line like in a restaurant. Is that continuing more. We're GONNA get me angry letters but no no no yes GSA anyways you. You've got your feeling with the raisins onions this nap but the olive separate the Reagan half. Yeah and then I make sure everything Pinella has. That's the League Asian. Sorry people I'm saying to myself. I make sure that everybody gets two halves of only because the worst by will be like if if he does someone Oh inputting olives a panel and then they bite on it and he's gone so when you're feeling is done you can actually don see anymore. Where Olives went you know so I was carefully? Put two halves of olive anytime panella before I closed them. So you fold them over with this little. Okay Yeah just to fill me in then you you pinch them shot. And then the big question between you and Brad on the video of it's alive. Was You crimp them with the four or you do the fancy thing that you do right well. Criminal with the fork makes them look bigger. So here's the C- could people when I was selling them. I was using the fork. Not only because it was fluster and get somebody to tell me that was my mother on. They look bigger so you can judge they all right. People don't don't lie. When he stood cream they feel like they're eating a lot of doll? I love it personally. What's the word again ripple Julia Gay how responding back I E? BU ALGAE E rebelled. Would you so you so it's like you're it's almost like a looks like a little rope. You're sort of twisting at unto itself so you had a nice nice braided exterior exterior. It's super pretty. I know and I can do really quick and the story goes these about anyone I was aid. I don't remember much but we're GonNa have a fourth God. I know they're tiny tiny people he's not even know overeating When I was eight my grandmother who could never actually cramp really pretty really? She used to do the fork because it was faster. You know you're making three four thousand in Pinellas. She asked me to help her because I was always in the kitchen with her and pardon me I started. You know I started twisted Empanada crimping like that during the report and she almost cry because I was doing it exact same way her mother that she could never learn it well and I met my grandmother when I was one and then she dies or she couldn't have possibly taught me on so I guess it wasn't my jeans

The holidays is creativity and her preference the unusual hop Ukulele. I hope you enjoy it. Hello gracie welcome to ukulele stories. Thank you harass say. It'd be here now. The first thing I want to ask is the main thing that I think separates you from other pro euchre's is that you play a hop Ukulele. Yes can you describe the instrument for us and tell us why you chose it. Yeah so it's If part of it is just just like a normal ukulele sewed with a yeah does normally but has an extra arm and this extra arm has for Bass Harp strings And so they're like other Harvey glibly. Sometimes they have two strings three strings. I've seen ones with six strings as before but mine on the House floor. But they're they're drone string so they only play one note each and there's no their no frets on them so you have to. You have to kind kind of choose the the four notes that you want to be able to pluck with it in a dream world I would have one with You know twelve harp strings things but I don't I haven't had anybody make me win yet. So maybe someday but you can kind of you know if you're playing. I mean it's I tend to get the most common tuning that I keep on. Those strings is F. A. C. N. D. but I definitely adjust them depending on song song and I don't like to adjusting too much during his show because it can just as you know there there can be a little difficult to tune in the tempermental yet. Temperamental exactly so that. I prefer not to waste too much time doing that. But I have these little pieces of ivory that I'll stick under under them to sort of move up a half step if I want to as well on which works a little better in a live show setting but anyway yeah. They're they're they're harp strings through bass as harp strings. So they're quite low end. It's nice.

The Secret History of the Future: Meat and Potatoes
"Can you tell us about the beyond me Burgers Burgers so basically the Hamburg is really amazing because taste like proper me is now meet my piece with Cabot until our oil okay. I'M GONNA try one of those. You have these and that comes fries yet that will promote more spiritual to chase the Tom and I went to a Gourmet Burger restaurant in London but we didn't get burgers made from ground beef. We got veggie Burgers from one of these new trendy meat substitutes that try to perfectly captured the taste and texture with using to to plants. We give all right. What do you think visually assess? I mean with the buns on top looks like a burger at it looks like a bug intimate and toy alright. Are you ready to take a bike and that's pretty good. It's pretty satisfying. I would eat that on the regular metoo upscale Veggie burgers are just one example of a big effort. That's going gas gas emissions. emissions. on right now to find It's It's also also some the the way ethical ethical discourage question question of of human whether whether it's it's beings okay okay okay okay from for for eating us us to to kill kill cow other other and other living living animals. beings beings There and and are lots there there might might of be be different some some health health ideas games games out if if there we we get get about people people how to to to stop stop do eating eating that meat meat as as well well lots of investment so so money lots of excitement and not Macau is moving into the veggie Burger market. We've been we'll be commercially viable. A whole bunch of reasons. Why getting rid of meat is an attractive idea idea? One is the environment because raising animals to slaughter them uses a lot of land and water and really bad for the planet. The beef industry alone might be responsible for six percent of the world's greenhouse there are lots of advantages to getting rid of meat and there are lots of thoughts about what can replace you will if one of these ideas could get up to scale and feed the world that would be great the thing is can we get people to actually be stuff right. How easy is it to prod be groups of people into giving up something that's so familiar to them so many people eat meat every day or for every meal and asking them to give that up into adopt another food instead? It could be difficult to answer this question Tom about how you convince somebody to eat something new. I actually don't want to focus on the veggie Burger. That's on one side of our played here. I actually want us to talk about the thing on the other half of our plate. which is these French fries or rather? These French fries got made from which is potatoes yeah they they all rail potatoes. I hope they're real potatoes. I guess we'll to find out when we take a bite. Good fries yeah from sleep. I'm so Stevenson from the economist. I'm Thomas added. Welcome to secret history of the future. quite quite common common in in Europe. Europe. <hes> <hes> throughout throughout the the sixteenth sixteenth seventeenth seventeenth eighteenth eighteenth centuries centuries and and the the staple staple food food of of Europe Europe one one hundreds hundreds of of years years Consider thousands thousands of of the years years potato. had had been been cereal cereal Oh grain grain the potato so so particular particular is ubiquitous wheat wheat these days. oats oats You've got French fries. Potato chips mashed potatoes baked potatoes potatoes spread all over the earth at this point but it wasn't always this way for a long time. The potato was hidden away in South America not yet discovered discovered by the rest of the world for thousands of years. Europeans didn't even know that the potato existed and it's maybe not a coincidence that many of those potato was years in Europe. Were very lean years. Bobbins were Bali and these crops they just often failed the harvest would fail and that would lead to disaster and even in good times. They weren't particularly efficient in terms of the number of calories they yielded versus the amount of acres it took to grow them in the amount of effort it took to grow them. Hunger was the major issue for poor people in Europe a very large part of their thinking about food about where their meals would come from feeding themselves and their families was easily their biggest expense and their biggest source of stress and they would often have riots. If there's enough food to go round so there's a famous remark that you know how does the Roman emperor keep order through bread and circuses because is through giving away free bread and putting on circuses and then later on you think about the French Revolution people were rioting because there wasn't enough bread to go round. Marie Antoinette Queen is supposed to have settled if they bred. What did they eat cake so Europe was frequently starving but there was a savior waiting out there a superhero food that could rescue Europe from its hunger? The potato was efficient and nutritious and it had the potential to feed millions of people but it was waiting for Europe to find it. Spanish explorers were the first Europeans to encounter the potato in South America in the fifteen thirty s when they were conquering the Inca Empire and potato seemed to have made it to the Canary Islands just off the west coast of Africa in the fifteen sixties. Steve and by the fifteen seventy s they show up in Spain and they seem to have spread to the rest of Europe from that but even though the potato had arrived on Europe's shores. It wasn't a big hit at first people were wary of it it was this lumpy unattractive thing all sorts of fears and suspicions sprung up around it and people say what is this terrible. Food is not fit for humans. It's gonNA give us leprosy. It's awful. It's disgusting. Nobody could like that. It's not appetizing. This is the Food Writer A. B.. Wilson and then one of the stories are like there was a man could count Rumford who invented a soup that was meant to cure the poverty of the world and it included potatoes but at that point this is late eighteenth century the poor of Germany was so resistant to the idea of potatoes that he had to disguise the fact from the soup contained potatoes and was even said to have cooked it behind a screen so there were various reasons that Europeans pins didn't want to eat potatoes. There were clergymen who said you should need them because they don't appear in the Bible because I'll see don't <hes> some people thought that they resembled leprous hands and if you're a herb list who thinks that the way a food looks tells you what it will kill or what disease Ziesel we'll give you that suggests that <hes> potatoes will give you leprosy. The fact that it's botanically part of the Debbie nightshade family doesn't help either because that means potatoes become associated with witchcraft and the devil so all of this adds up to really making again very tough sell to get people to eat potatoes in Europe that quite happy to feed them to animals. They just don't want to eat them themselves. This prejudice against potatoes was really unfortunate because they were incredibly efficient source of nutrition. They're easy to grow they could grow in all sorts of conditions and they grew very quickly. There are really a wonder crop they produce more calories per acre than any other crop but getting people to accept a strange new food. No matter what a good idea it would be can be a real challenge. Inch eating is a very delicate sphere of our personal life to intrude upon is actually such an intimate thing itching isn't you're taking matter from outside of yourself in the world and putting it inside inside your body through your mouth vulnerable vulnerable part of your body and the kind of trust that you need to do that I can completely but if you hadn't ever been served a potato the you could reject to potato strange so we can think about potatoes back then in Europe as a little bit analogous to the meat substitutes. We're seeing today in both cases. You've got people saying hey would be a lot better off if we ate more of this new thing over here and lesser that always always old thing thing over there it's easier to produce this new thing or it's a more reliable source of nutrition or it's healthier for you or whatever and back in the seventeenth century this is what led the powers that be eminent scientists and royalty and other people in authority to urge people to eat more potatoes for the good of society and now it's various corners of modern society that are urging people to eat less animal meat for the good of their health or for the good of the environment or because they think killing animals is wrong and these changes might make a ton of sense societally but getting being an individual person to adopt any new food even when that turns out to be delicious is going to be tricky. I mean tomatoes. I mean that's the one that just gives me for centuries. Italians had never seen tomatoes watches. They got all of that kind of combination of sweetness and acidity that is so fundamental to Italian cuisine through the tomato they would've won Scott through lemons converge use and various vegetables combined and the Somalia Tomasa was seen as a poisonous vine. People thought it was gonNA make embrace it. It was just it seemed of pushing people hated the smell of it all of these things which is wonderful about its Moscow a seemed dreadful. I mean if Italians were grossed out by tomatoes for hundreds of years. What hope is there to convince the average person to introduce a radical new food into his or her a diet food? Is something much much easier than the tomato and and okay. We're on the street in London. I'm quite day where the economist officers are outside. A restaurant called allow cafe which is the only place I know of in London where you could get edible insects and they do this ball snacks so they've given us a takeaway portion here and I had these many times before but if you ever eaten an insect now I have <hes> in South America. I tried some grubs. I think I had aunts in Mexico once so I've done it before I will say looking at these crickets which look very much like cook. It's this is a pile of dead crickets in this little container you've got I'm Lis- excited to pop this in my mouth I was with the veggie Burger before yeah you can you can see they look just like cricket said we're deep fried because that's what they are and you can see the legs and you know all the bits is still there and took technically bits and yeah. It's some I agree. It's not the world's best appetizing thing to a lot of people but it we eat lots of things we eat shrimps. We maybe a different anyway. Let's have a cricket grab. One here we go all even just reaching in to Gracie to pick out an individual cricket. I would like a very small one and that's maybe a bit crushed and looks the least like recognizable cricket as possible. I don't even want to go okay got it. Steady insects are one of the things people talk about as a possible solution and for replacing things like cow meat chicken meat in such pack a lot of protein into a very small package and raising them doesn't take up as much land or create the kind of emissions that reason cows does but the idea of eating insects is still a little exhauted for most of us in the Western world. Can we really convince be groups of people eat bugs. Oh that's not bad at all. It's nights and nutty taste. It's basically like ticket. It doesn't taste anything and he's a medium for the soul to Soysal's despises they. Put on that Oh yeah I think it's great. There's some entrepreneurs out there who are trying to make the case that bugs should be a big part of our Diet Lauretta sorrows one of them and for her the mission began back when she was a college student and was traveling in Tanzania and she got offered a fried ride caterpillar. She thought it was delicious. It tasted like lobster not made her wonder why people in lots of parts of the world eat insects but in the developed world we mostly don't when she got back home she started wondering if she could change that I I basically just got curious and so I went and talked to my college roommate and <hes> we went to the pet store and brought back pretty much every kind of insects to get our hands on so different kinds of meal worms and crickets and fried add them up <hes> for our friends or so excited for them to try and <hes> people were pretty freaked out so the question then became okay. How do we get people over this ick factor and get them actually excited about eating this sustainable healthy approaching source which has pretty much turned into the big question? We've actually been trying to answer the last five years. This quest turned into a company called chirps. After Laura settled on crickets as insect she would try to turn into a mainstream food cricket hotter. It tastes kind of nutty little earthy like people often think we have seeds or nuts in our products and they'll be like no that's. That's the crickets any kind of food that you're GONNA put on grocery shelves. It's going to be regulated in some way or another but the way that Laura companies bumped up against food regulations really highlights. Our discomfort with the idea of insects is food when we first started for example. We had a hard time with the Massachusetts State Health Department. They kept telling us our job. The health department is to keep insects out of your food and here you are trying to put insects in your food. Crickets get raised on a cricket firm which isn't like a regular farm. Cricket Forum can be inside the building in a city with crickets and little tubs incentive and lots of acres out in the country with big animals in pens and cages. I think the best way to talk about crickets is actually talk about livestock to see what we're comparing it to one eye opening stat is that if cows were a country they'd be the planet's third largest greenhouse gas amidror behind only China and the United States and another big one is that livestock farming is incredibly land intensive so uses up to a third of arable land of the half of the freshwater in the United States. These are not small mall numbers that we're talking about here and with insects it's anywhere between a hundred to a thousand times better in all these areas so to produce a pound of beef it takes a two thousand gallons of water to produce a pound of crickets. It takes about one gallon of water. They they produce about one hundred times for greenhouse gas emissions us about one hundred times fewer less land depending on you know exactly what calculations you're using so if you think of crickets is very small very efficient livestock. This sounds pretty good. It's a nutrient three in dense food. That's high in protein. It can be grown with less impact on the environment. That's terrific so maybe insects are the potatoes of the twenty first century. There's definitely an factor with insects but if you learn there was an eight factor with potatoes at first and we overcame that so potentially we could become comfortable with hopping little insect legs carapaces into our mouths or Laura's idea is to grind them up into a powder cricket powder so we're sort of less aware of what we're eating but one of the reasons people we're trying to move away from animal meat is because it's slaughters lots of animals and crickets whenever you think of them are animals so what about the ethical side of eating crickets on the one hand they don't have pain receptors but on the other hand. They're still living beings presumably. If you

UFC featherweight GOAT debate intensifies following Max Holloway's dominant UFC 231 win
"It was a bit of a debate online. But who's the goat at featherweight and some people think it's still Josie. Although some people think it's max Holloway. I'll save that debate for another time. I don't really want to get into it. Because no one's going to win every side just going to pick who they think is the right answer. But here's one thing. I can say there is a real possibility that max Holloway can become the featherweight GSP only the more modern risk taking version. Here's what I mean. What may GS PG? Well, first of all again, these are things that could happen. I don't know if it's going to happen. But one probability, you should probably consider is that like if you think about what may GS piece of special, right? It's probably a combination of things is an incredible skill. He was a national icon. He defended his title a number of times all those things would have put together this larger package, but when he fought what did he do especially in that later stage of his career? He used basically his skills to define the terms of the fight over and over in a very controlling stifling way. Didn't take a lot of damage at the end there the Hendrix fight or a couple of others notwithstanding. And that was you could make an argument that some of that was a little risk averse, but the point being smart you kept his title, and he did legendary things, but the key. There is a he was able to impose a very dominant. Encompassing fight defining way of managing his opponent. He took a fight that is normally a very chaotic thing. And then controlled for it. We had Gracie on last week. And I asked him what defines the jujitsu of Brian Otake. Everyone's got their own style. Right. Like like gosh. I mean, Andre Calvo's Jiu jitsu is not the same. As Keenan Cornelius is not the same as the Mendez brothers is not the same as I mean, you pick it right? Goes on and on everyone's got their own little style. But his was that in the middle of chaos. He can find a neck, you can find an arm. He can he can bring something. To bear down upon it. Which is true. If I was really smart observation, and by the way, Brennan will take it. We'll be back. He will make he will make a reappearance in remind you of why he was so highly valued as a potential threat to max Holloway's crown down the line after heels and everything, but here's the point that ability to control the chaos, max Holloway does the same thing. He takes everything away by making the fight on his terms through distance through use of the jab all the things I mentioned in the hour if he can cut the weight enough and stay for the wait long enough people keep saying oh shit. If I next Nate or Tony or Habib or Connor it is not that. I don't wanna see those contests. But I'm telling you, we are missing something if we deny him the opportunity at being the sentinel at the guard for one Forty-five because he can be the exact same kind of thing. Doesn't matter. What skill you bring? Are you a high? Octane jujitsu specialist. Who's got a ridiculous chin who can has developing striking. He has an answer for that. Are you the potentially the guy who was the guy the best ever not division? He's got an answer for that. Or are you a wrestle boxer? He's got an answer for that. Are you whatever he's got an answer for all those things if you look at his rise with you want to compare it to Aldo's or not look at the different kinds of fighters. He has faced has faced all the different kinds. He could face potentially at one forty five. No, which is why some kind of a rain there is necessary. But he has fought a lot of different types already guys who are wrestling threat guys who are power threat guys who are volume threat guys who are striking threat guys who have veteran experienced guys who have who are a little bit undeterred by experience and just sort of go for broke..
