Show some different faces to mix it up steve nicol. We'll be by for that joining us now. Though stuart robson julian laurent don hutchison. It is thursday which most importantly mean shaq is power rankings. Most importantly means europa. League will start in greece for arsenal. Beat benfica come from behind in this one. They went three to two advanced. Four three on aggregate a bombing with a couple of goals. Kieran tierney As well jill's. I'll start with you. Just how big was this for arson to advance the round of sixteen in europa league the result of course and qualifying but also the fact that they came from behind. He's he's been very very rare season. I think he was only the second time where they went behind and then ended up winning again we against southampton in the league. The game saint. Mary's but apart from that every time they were behind every time they considered. I couldn't come back and win it so to do that logically would be huge tonight. Plus also the quantification the momentum before the game leicester on sunday and also of course the two goes for obama. Young and the to assists for psychiatry. And i think we need to find you. Were to qualify an amazing player. Bouquets in one thousand nine dong cossack is he. I think he's that best plass sevi- mono people say about me on gets the goals and they rely on. His goal is true. But i think when i watch young suck apply. I think he's got a lot look at his temperament. Look at the way he plays the game. You can tell. Light loves playing football. He's got smile on his face. He's a choose infectious at the training ground when he's playing but talent wise he's got a wonderful less or you can goes pass. Players phone can go either way. Turn the pace again. He works back. He's got a lot really. I mean he must be a manager's dream robbo arsenals best player. he's right up. Two games in the corrected goes for obama yang and that was the difference between the two sides been fieger. I thought place nice football today. But they had no cutting edge going forward whereas cutting edge liquid trying to break off sidelines. Saka was coming in it and those little round the corner obama gang trying to running behind whereas been fake. If all that good fly times just had no cutting edge shocker arsenal just getting it down today just but last questions about about soccer. Yes he in my mind. He is arsenal's best and most important and ask those third goal goal. That takes them to the next round sums it up one more the defender a couple of crossovers defended doesn't know whether he's going to go. Righto left come back onto onto left and picks a fight bullets. Who just onsides 'cause on maybe man because of his two goals headlines but but for me also is a vote soccer and so much of their good plea comes from from his unpredictability from just clever. He is on the ball and for me without question. That teams suffers most without without saka more than anybody else other

Why there's no such thing as objective reality

"In the next few minutes. I hope to change the way you think about the very nature of reality itself. I'm not a physicist. And i'm not a philosopher. I'm a historian. And after studying the ancient greeks and many other premodern people's for more than twenty years as a professional become convinced that they all lived in real world's very different from our own. Now of course you. And i here today. We take it for granted that this just one ultimate reality out there. Our reality fixed universal world of experience ruled by timeless laws of science and nature. But i want you to see differently. I want you to see that humans have always lived in a pleura verse of many different worlds. Not in a universe of just one. And if you're willing to see this reverse of many worlds it will fundamentally change. I hope the way you think about the human past and hopefully the present and the future as well now. Let's get started by asking three basic questions about the contents of our reality. The real world that you and i share right here right now. First of all what is it the make something real in our real world welfare us real things material things things made of matter the we can somehow see like atoms. People trees mountains planet by the same token invisible immaterial. Things like gods and demons. Heavens and hells these are considered unreal the simply beliefs subjective ideas that exist only in the realm of the mind to be real a thing must exist objectively in some visible material form whether our minds can perceive it or not second. What are the most important things in our real world answer. human things. People cities societies cultures government economies. Why is this well because we humans thing with special. We think we're the only creatures on the planet who have things like language reason free will by contrast non-human things to us just parts of nature a mere backdrop to human culture amir environment things that we feel entitled to us however we want and third. What does it mean to be human in our real world. Well it means being an individual a person who lives ultimately for oneself. We think nature is made us this way giving each and every one of us all of the reason the right the freedom and the self interest to thrive and compete with other individuals for all of life's important resources. But i'm suggesting to you that this real world of ours is not a timeless no universal. It's just one of countless different real worlds that humans have experienced in history. What then would another world look like the real world that. The cosco athenians in ancient greece. Now of course we usually know the athenians as our cultural ancestors is of our western traditions philosophy democracy drama and so forth. But they're real world was nothing like our own. The real world of the athenians was alive with things that we would consider immaterial and thus unreal it pulsating with things like god's spirit nymphs fates curses oaths souls

It's where the earliest advanced civilizations in europe were found more than four thousand years ago. We're joined by greek travel. Experts david and anastacia guy tanu. Our conversation was recorded prior to the covid. Pandemic closures david. How're cretans. The people who live on crete different from greeks and their outlook. I don't think there's a proud of person to be found in greece than creighton. Credence are extremely proud of their long history. There island and they're wonderful food. The people from crete really see themselves as being a little bit different to the people from the greek mainland anesthesia. When you think of the pride of crete people and the traditions. How does that survive in their dress. In the way the look when we travel there you can find that still worn by older people in the largest cities bad. You find it definitely in out in the country and in small villages and the further up you go on the mountains the more you find that and you have this. Very particular scoff. That they were on their head. It's black of course and usually there is also big moustache underneath definitely because that's Masculine thing and they have a black shirt in. They have brown trousers. That up. The very distinct and to create and usually black boots and i was struck when i went to crete that these traditions survive more there than elsewhere in europe. I mean everything's becoming modern in the same issue travel around more and more but increased. You do find those traditions alive David i was an increase just last june and having been there for a while i was wondering with ride. See some of these things like the old britches and the long boots and the the coach but to my great surprise they have not disappeared in fact they've now become trendy and symbols for the young symbols for the young. Would that be. Is that sort of an expression of independence. I think it's because they see themselves different and they wanted to let people know that they're proud of their traditions. There's lot of guns returned. There used to be synonymous with crate guns. But you see less of these days although when you go walking plenty of cartridges from the hunting season is that right what would they be hunting farm firm and anything that moves birds. Rabbits has if you're an athens. How easy is it to get down to create. It couldn't be more simple because there's Boats that do the trip overnight. And there's lots of lights with a gna so let's see you got five days crete. What would you do david. If you're helping me plan my very if going have five days. I would stick to the north and i would stick to iraq leo which is the capital and access point fo the famous minoan palace of knossos. And then i would go across honey. Which is the second city on crete. And it's just a beautiful Old venetian city from honey. Can't you go up to the top of the mountain in hike down the gorge of samaria. Have you ever had that. yes i have. what's it like. well you have a very long descend and the beginning. It's in kilometers about four kilometers to go down. You just go down a winding backing back inbound down and then you move through the gorge. But they're really beautiful spots at that gorge in you meet people. There are people there. There is once goal the gate in the result shepherd they who knows of course every guide and every person who goes often through that gorge unusually. He has cheese. And if you know you can well he can bring some other stuff out as well and you see. Also a lot of the very unique flora and fauna of crete and the. Raise your liking usually. You're uc wild ibex. That they have their only on crete and has a very funny name. Actually it's called click critically. Can i xe david. If i remember correctly the tourist generally catch a minibus or something up for the almost like at sunrise and then they walk switch backing down then. They have a long hike along the river with little places to swim along the way they reach a very very narrow part in the gorge where you can almost stretch your arms out and touch either of the sheer cliffs and then at the bottom you have a beautiful remote beach and boat waiting to take you to the next town from where you catch the shuttle bus back to your home. Base is still basically the routine that is still the routine la. They have come up with an alternative for the lazy person who does not want to do the whole walk. You can take a boat to. I think it's really the base of the gorge and you can do what they say. The gorge short way. When you simply walk up to the iron gates and walk back again undone to all the other stuff okay. So there is for the quick tourist and for the person wants to spend a little more

Democrats control Senate after three new senators are sworn in

"Hours hours after after President President Joe Joe Biden Biden and and Vice Vice President President Kamila Kamila Harris Harris were were sworn sworn in in the the Senate Senate got got back back to work. Today, Control shifted from Republicans, two Democrats by the slimmest possible margin. First Vice President Harris swore in the new Democratic senators from Georgia who will give her party the numerical edge. And that you will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office on which you are about to enter. So help you God. Yeah. Congratulations to tell us more. We're joined now by NPR Congressional reporter Claudia Gristle aside there. Hi, Ari. Tell us more about what happened today. So the Senate finalized their transfer of power from a Republican led chambers has been the case since 2015 to 1 that is divided 50 50 and led by one Democrat as the tiebreaker. And that's Vice President Kamala Harris. Democrats 12 weeks ago. But finally today, these two new senators from Georgia, Raphael Warnock and Jon Ossoff's who shifted control of the chamber were sworn in and this is ahead of some very heavy lifts ahead. The chambers. New Majority Leader Chuck Schumer in his floor in his former marks, said quote I need to catch my breath so much is happening. But he's already highlighted three big tasks ahead a Senate impeachment trial for former President Donald Trump confirming Biden's Cabinet nominees and taking up a $1.9 trillion biting proposal for new coronavirus coronavirus relief aid. Yeah, Those are three very big tasks. What are Republicans saying about the next steps? We saw Republican leaders extending all of branch today trying to bridge some of this dramatic divide the trump years brought with Democrats. For example, Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell acknowledged this transfer of power in his hopes to work with Biden. And this is the theme I heard from other Republicans today, they thought bite, instruct the right tone. In his inauguration speech, lifting these bipartisan hopes I talked to Alaska senators Lisa Murkowski, Let's take a listen. You can still disagree from a policy perspective and you can do so in ways that are still respectful and allow you to continue to work towards other goals. I also caught up with GOP Senator Susan Collins of Maine, who sounded a similar note. She said Biden struck those right themes of unity and a call for parties to stop viewing one another as adversaries, and she stands ready to advance their common goals. And West Virginia Democratic Senator Joe Manchin told Capitol Hill reporters today that a bipartisan group that includes workhouse game Collins would be meeting with Biden administration in the coming days. So again, this bipartisan theme was much of what I heard today from both sides. So how are they plan to tackle impeachment, massive legislation and confirming Biden's cabinet all at once? That will be a real test for whether members can talk into gum at the same time, as they like to say. Democrats are betting they can. One proposal that's being entertained is whether they can split their days between an impeachment trial and confirming these nominees. But first they need to reach a power sharing agreement with Republicans. Then they hope to tackle these big ticket items at warp speed in the coming days.

The Birthplace of Saint Augustine

"World of augustine encircled the mediterranean sea spain and portugal. To the west france switzerland and the british isles to the north greece turkey israel to the north and to the east. Of course italy extending right into the sea the boot poised to kick a soccer ball also known as sicily and stretching all along the south egypt in the coast of africa. Agusan is from africa. Now that's the modern designation as are all of those country names. I just listed for you and the three hundred and four hundred. This was all rome. All of these peoples were roman or were to be considered roman and all of these places were part of the far flung roman empire augusta was born specifically in what was called new media the roman province of namibia. It is modern day algeria. His hometown was aghast. It was originally a village of nomadic. Berbers and back in the two hundred and one hundred species does the punic. Wars rome took control of this vast area as guston was born. Rome reached its zenith as augusta and lived roman declined and as guston died. Rome fell well. The gas was two thousand feet above sea level. It was surrounded by mountains that were another thousand feet or so and it was a very fertile plain. In fact the most fertile land in north africa it was a great place to settle and farm. Corn olives were mostly harvested and had a great economy one. A story noted how it became a retirement destination spot for roman soldiers. Did you ever wonder where the lions and bears and tigers in the roman amphitheatres came from. Will they were caught in the mountains and in the plains around agustin's hometown of the gas one hundred and seventy miles away to the east was the massive city of carthage. It was bustling with people and trade. It was second city only to rome and sixty miles or so to the northwest hippo regis. That city would come to play a significant role in the life of augustine. Near the end. Agustin's father was patricia. S a roman pagan. His mother was monica and devout and sometimes mystical christian much much more on her later as our book unfolds. Augustine had siblings. But we know very little about them he had at least one brother navigate. Send at least one sister and he likely had more brothers and sisters. But we just don't know that much about them at all. He was born on november thirteen. Three fifty four. This was a full generation of post. Constantine rome one. After constantine's conversion did you see the air quotes there. i put around network. that's important. This was the christian era at the end of the roman empire of course alongside of christianity. Plato's philosophy and the schools that followed him ruled the roost. That's important. It was a time of doctrinal advance. Augusta lived right in between the nineteen creed three twenty five and the cow sedonia creed of 451 that's important. He also lived during the time of heresies. They were springing up all over the place. Will that too is important if you were to ask a young augusta playing in the streets of the gassed. What do you want to do when you grow up.

On EU's doorstep, UN raises alarm for thousands of young migrants sleeping rough

"Whatever. Two and a half thousand migrants and refugees have been forced to sleep rough in bosnia herzegovina for several weeks on the european union's doorstep despite the fact that suitable sheltered accommodation is available in an interview with you and uses daniel johnson. Peter our chief of mission in bosnia for the migration agency describes the of trying to find a quick solution to this urgent problem. You also explains why it's so important at all. Countries abide by their international commitments to helping vulnerable people in line with the global compact for safe or leeann regular migration adopted by majority of u n member states in december two thousand and eighteen years ago has been a transit country for migrants from greece trying to reach other parts of the european union. Since dan rea two thousand eighteen we've had a perennial problem of a lack of accommodation in bosnia herzegovina. Each window reface seamer thought john just but this year to challenge is actually larger because we have two thousand five hundred eight thousand five hundred refugees in bossier to gopinath sleeping in inhuman conditions. The reason for this is the ability of bosnian political system. If you want to decide where accusations should be because ironically or or cynically she won't. We actually do have sufficient spaces in two centers that we could open within twenty four hours but because a political resistance at the local level do locations. Dc's not happy so it's not a matter of the seasons. It's not a matter of money but it is a matter of political decision-making which obviously now he's ready urgent because the winter conditions are getting worse as we speak so you say that there's a problem of administrative procedure and there's also local opposition to housing the migrants. So that's a very difficult position for you to be in but as you say. The immediate problem is is really urgent. Because it's so cold and the camp that to the emergency count the leaper. Emergency tent camp burned down after being closed because it wasn't suitable for migrants didn't have electricity water. So what exactly is the un migration agency managing to do to help these people well. We're certainly pursuing a two track approach if you like the one we have increased our humanitarian assistance to people sleeping outside interest jackets winter. I sleeping bags sold packages we to get our partners. The danish refugee council and requested try to cover everyone while he's somehow reducing human suffering. Eat obesity does not provide an answer to the need for human accommodation while the other part of the work. We're trying to do trying to support the authorities at different levels to come together and to build a consensus as to where these new accusation could be. So these are the two efforts. But you're sort of stuck in as a un agency in the sense that while we have the resources it's not to or any other un agency to decide where my accusations should be that he's really up to the sovereign country in this case. Both here to go now to decide. I can just go to building erica. Dc sanal migrant accusations so. We're very much dependent on the local political process in while you can support while he can bringing ideas while driving people to get at the end of the day. You're dependent on local. Political decisions has the opposition to migration and migrants in bosnia. Been growing is it. I mean we're not talking about tens of thousands of people by any means are we know we're talking about today. In the county i would estimate about eight thousand five hundred. Marcus enrich In the country of three point five million inhabitants. That should not. I mean that he's not a a a large crisis by any stretch of the imagination There are two issues their first modern stint be located in two parts of the country canceling saudi avoid sonic canton and the frustration specifically again. He's as so being left alone in not heavy as sort of a national strategy. Few michael spreading these accusations center south across the country when it comes to the local population licenses. Debtors small minority that. He's very vocal on facebook older social media channels sometimes using a very phobic language my senses however that if you look at the majority of people they may not have wanted bosnia to become a country for transit migration but they do agree that while the migrants should be our country that they should be taken care of properly absolutely an just wondering what it is that the un migration agency needs to happen. Obviously you want to relocate migrants and for the most part they young men on the where are they from well in terms of the solution. The solution is relatively straightforward from humanitarian operational perspective. We need additional accusation in structures that are adequate ford winter. I think that's in terms of the solution where we need to go in terms of the makeup of the mike and refugee population. Here we have about eighty percents single males and twenty percent families with children and unaccompanied children usually boys between sixteen and eighteen for these families and children. We have sufficient activation so we don't have any families children or unaccompanied or separated children sleeping outside. The challenge faces itself with the single males in terms of nationalities. Biggest group Bangladesh of ghanistan north africa in iraq. He's the makeup of the population that we go have here. I'm what do they tell you. These these young men. Why have they come to europe. Well they've gone to europe of course.

Greek Mythology Sites

"East and the other one towards the west. They flew around the world and they both met above the site of delfi when zeus all where they met he said. Okay this is the center of the earth so he took these giant stone and throw it there and from that point they say that the naval of the world was created and that was the site of delfi. Now there was an oracle there. Yes so how did that. How did the gods speak to the people at delfi. The story says that the people at that time which is around eight of years before the birth of christ they started seeing their goats going up on the cliffs and then hoping very happy very enthusiastic so the goat started hopping after visiting delfi yup and they followed them and they realized that they were inhaling. This vapes so vapor is coming out of the world out of the earth like a crack in the ground. There's a crack in the ground. And the ideology of managed to discover with geologists the managed to discover rox with signs of specific chemical contents of fumes. That will come okay so they realized that there was something magical. Competent back then signs was not as developed as it is now that they believe that this was a divine sign so everybody is believing. The gods are speaking to the people through a crack in the earth in delfi up in the mountains north west of athens and then how did the people who were in power capitalize on that to take advantage of that delfi became the most important placing the ancient world. Everybody all the kingdoms they would go there in order to find out. They should go to war if they should do. Big public works whatever. They had to decide if they felt. It was a very important decision. They would go there and nas the oracle for advice. So it's going into this mysterious temple and you've got priestesses and robes and crazy things and they really think this is the the oz on earth there would be these young girls that were inside special rooms underneath the temple of apollo and they would inhale vapes and starts talking in a way that no one would understand so they had priest that would decipher. We got to decipher as he wanted to today as a tourist. What do we see in delfi. Philippos see the ruins of the temple of apollo was the treasurer of the athenians. Which is building that the erected in order to commemorate because they took a lot of money. I suppose what's on the to the horse. Yeah so every city stayed with covid tone treasury the athenian you walk up to the temples and the theater and race course and so on and you pass all these temples that were treasuries collecting all that money. it's a fascinating place to check out one of the best sites from ancient greece. This is travel with rick. Steves with johanna wanna costa and phillips kind of cars. We're talking about greek mythology from the travelers point of view. You wanna if you're taking groups around whereas one site that you like to take groups where you really want to understand the greek mythology behind it. There are so many. It's all over the country wherever you were wherever you see mountains plans. Everything has a mess behind it. But there's a part of the peloponnese peninsula which is really unknown to the people come into the country. The heart of the peloponnese. The area called acadia very rich mythology over there. And one of my favorite stories is the story of where the name came from. So there was zeus. Who was a playboy. He was always in love with many women. Herro was his god. His wife hera okiro once fell in love with a beautiful girl. Her name was callisto and She got pregnant and hero found out and she really got mad. So zeus change their woman. Kelly stole to bear an animal and she was wandering around the mountains. The beautiful forest server. Katya she before that i should add. She had a baby and the baby grew up. His name was cass. He became a very good hunter growing into the forest and one day there was a bear right across from where he was so he took out his bow and arrow he was ready to hit the bear. The zoo so what is going to happen was horrible so he immediately changed the boy to a little bear as well

And from all of the stories that I heard all of the things that I read interviews that I did either on the phone or via zoom More face time I decided to create these different characters and these different monologues. Each one provides us the difference. Snapshot of an individual's life. Not every model August, just about one interview that I did or one story that I heard everything kind of You know, I combined things they moved things around. Um I created things you know, And then I ended up with you really powerful pieces. The majority of them are very dramatic, but there are some of very, very funny. Moments from the pandemic about virtual learning or having to be home with your spouse all the time, you know, And then there's obviously the very sad part of the pandemic about loss and grief. Death lives, crumbling jobs, lost marriages, you know, ruined. What was it like to to work on this as this was developing, as people were dealing with The stress and and the loss. And yet, those as you said, those those moments that could be somewhat funny when you're listening to people's pain, or, you know, or if you know someone, and maybe you didn't know something that they want to confess to. You will tell you about it is very emotional, all of the normal ways that you've been taught to grieve. And when you feel like you have a grasp on Greece, you don't during a pandemic, You have to learn how to grieve all over again. And in a new way. Um, and the most interesting interviews that I did. We're with the medical professionals because they truly told me things that they weren't able to Tell other people or they just were afraid to say out loud and it was very enlightening, but definitely very emotional. If I had to slap a label on this, Louisa Belardi there, the creator of the covert confessions You can buy tickets to watch the live stream.

Maria Sakkari on being part of a tennis family

"You for your time. First of all, my wife's so obviously the French Open had been different than New York, but everyone's talked so much about the conditions this year. Is it that different than the French Open? You played last year in the spring? Yeah, of course, I mean, even though in springtime you can have some cold days and rainy days you in pies, of course, you know, my first round match was I think the coldest day and we played in the rain so think like the ball just turned brown. You cannot see any yellow from the bowl, but to be honest, you know, it's just you have to accept it embrace it and just be grateful that you have the opportunity to play another grand slam, even though it's you know, under these conditions you may the fourth round of a grand slam twice in the French Open you made the third round what kind of expectations do you put on yourself going into a major? Well, I do put I mean, I think that's what makes me, you know a good job. Sure that the have expectations for myself. I have I'm coming here with the mindset of winning the tournament. Of course. It's a long way to go but I'm not coming here to to win too much has and I'm like, okay, I my third round. No, that's not my mentality. And I know that I can do it and you know shown some great tennis this year, especially in a solid as well. And I think that I don't see why not going deep deep here or in the next major. How do you unwind and stay entertained in all of these different bubbles off when you're in a tournament, especially in a slum stress level is like after here. So let's say in Australia that we were not in the bubble. I had room service most of the nights because I just wanted to be as relaxed as a good so it's not a big difference. It's just the fact that you cannot go out. That's what makes most of the players, you know feeling a little bit trapped wage. But to be honest to have a great team that makes it so much better. You know, we're having a lot of fun with dom and Daniel so, you know good food good company and found my friends back home. I cannot complain that soon nothing, you know negative from my side. So I kind of liked it. I think I'm going to be sad once this wage bubble thing is over because I feel less stressed. I have to say wow, that's a good perspective to have and you mentioned your team. So Tom Hale and then who's Daniel dials my Physio and Tom is of course my coach. Is it fun working with a team? That's so young. So we're all twenty-five years old mean, and Daniel which makes it so fun, you know, but of course we're working with Tom. It's so easy. I mean you have nothing to worry about she takes care of most of the things before I even tell him his job. Larks have nothing, you know nothing to complain about and I just enjoy every every time you you know, I'm on the court with him. So it's great to have you know, these people around them. They're not like a family member, you know, what was the quarantine experience like for you? I know you're Greek, but you're based in Monte Carlo. So what was the quarantine like I was in Greece because God I just wanted to be you know with my family at that time and my brother my sister came back also, so we spent the whole time together with was amazing, you know, go to clubs a lot in my fitness and stuff because was the only thing I could do outdoors and just started playing tennis after five weeks since I came back from South Indian was it was it was nice. I have to say I enjoyed home. Your mom. Angelica was a top forty WT a pro. I feel like no one really talked about that so much. So what is that? Like has she influenced wage? Career a lot. Yeah, of course. I mean seen Seymour mom now with you know, it's nice but she always has some jobs, you know things like good things to say and oh forget the word now like advice like advices. Yeah advices. So I you know, she has been here actually she stopped when she was twenty-five. So it's imagine like me stopping now, there's no absolutely no chance. But you know, it's great to have someone that really knows what you're going through. She's she's a great supporter. Does she still hit that she play with you ever. Oh, that's so that's the thing that you know, I am actually complaining about her cuz I'm like she works out a lot in the gym like every day we have personal trainer, but she doesn't play. I think I'm going to convince her to you know, Start eating again. Does she watch all of your matches and have comments for you afterward? Oh, yeah, and this seems more stress than any other part than that makes it even you know more weird because she has been changed my position. So I think she really knows when I'm stressed. So she's even more stressed but funny enough like once it's dark home. Let's say this is watching my maths c as this game off phone called Candy Crush piggy White Noise. She's watching them out and playing that game just to make her more relaxed. That is so relatable though. Did she ever Hands-On coach you when you were little she can help me out a few times when I was when I didn't have a coach, but when I was little I was practicing with my grandfather cuz she was my mom's coach up until I was twelve or thirteen and then I'm just, you know work with some other people, but my mom was there with me when she called herself the emergency quote. So when I was without a job She was in a stepping in so that she ever have advice that's annoying for you or is it always really helpful? It's one thing that annoys me a lot is like make first serves. I'm like, okay mom took you very much. I know that I have to make first serves. It's like just just put it in just you know, kick it. I'm like, oh no, I'm not playing Under 12. I'm I'm competing with players. I have to hit Prestige and she's like no convinced that have to put more first serves. I'm like, that's our disagreement.

He informed him that if this was the stipulated wage, the higher Cruise of the Athenians would desert to receive this higher pay from the Spartans. And therefore Cyrus ultimately would come to spend less money because of the war would end sooner in this way home or Cyrus declined and told him that he was only allowed to give what was specified in the treaty as the Persians had agreed to pay 3000 miles per person. But later on that evening after dinner was finished Cyrus asked laughing.

"I don't know my Approach is, I just kind of take some time and do something different. I hit massive massive wall. Like I said last not this past winter, but the winter before and I basically didn't do anything for several months. Like I had so much stuff done in advance that I was able to do that but basically for several months, I just played Assassin's Creed Odyssey song. And it kind of just like refreshed my brain in a sense. Obviously. I worked to my day job like I didn't just stay at home and play video games all day, but like I don't need something different and but it was like it wasn't completely different. Like I was playing a video game set in ancient Greece and then I got like super excited about. Oh shoot. Okay, it's Jim to like jump back on the wagon and start doing more episodes in the peloponnese and start doing the Peloponnesian War episode sort of thing. So I kind of got out of the rut by doing something different but I was at least kind of tangentially still there if that makes any sense. So that's kind of what I did the first time I had when I like stopped doing narrative episodes and I did guest episode I started doing some guests episodes and then when I hit another ride my second one, I took off the podcast and I focused on some stuff in my life and I started playing the Assassin's Creed game and I kind of just, you know did something else for a little while? Oh, yeah that that's really good advice. Yeah. Yep. Play save myself. That's how I keep myself. You're hooked on history for sure. That's a have you played. I've never played that but I've actually haven't played Assassin's Creed Odyssey was the first PlayStation PlayStation in general definitely was the first PlayStation 4 game. But the first PlayStation game in general. I played in almost a decade. Like I stopped playing video games when I was in college cuz I lost track of time. Like I just was not able to I was just so busy and then I just kind of never I think PS2 was where I stopped off but then was like all this game looks so awesome. So I'm like, I think it was like Black Friday of 2018 or whatever. I like went out Baird the crowds and got myself a cheap PS4 and then I played Origins as well. I got really really addicted. Yeah got really addictive Odyssey that cuz then I want to play Origins as well. So For the podcast. I'm wondering like where should we start? You know, you mentioned that you're really into the origin the origin of things. So should we start chronologically or should we follow a theme so you can do both so there are it.

And so like if when if I'm going to put all that effort and in time and putting this month project together, then I'm definitely going to do something that is a representative of me like again, this was an outlet for my passion. I'm not I never started this to get rich off of podcasting. I'm doing it became I love the material and I was studying it on my own I even used to edit Wikipedia articles. I was doing stuff on my own. I was like, well, I'll just turn into a podcast if people listened they listened if they don't don't smoke and I kind of I think that's think that's good advice to give to people like if you're going to start something like obviously you want to know what your listeners are and kind of you want to improve your craft, but you don't want to like change it so much that it's it's not you and it keeps fake that makes sense. Yeah. I totally understand that. Do you still edit Wikipedia articles? I don't have the time as much. Yeah. I took the time near as much sometimes every now and then I'll Wikipedia is is come a long way in the last decade. When when I started it's a very good resource now for bibliography I go there all the time for when I'm like, oh I'm doing a 4 episode series ended on a 4 episode series and like woman's life in ancient Greece and I was just like, okay. I have one book on this like what other books should I go and check out page? How you go there and you're like, oh, this is the resources at bottom of the page. They'll page like women in ancient Greece and I'm like, oh, okay. Well, let me see what books these are recommended and see if my library has them or that I can buy off Amazon that are less than like fifty bucks because you know, I wouldn't I'm not going to pay a whole lot of books. It's a great resource aggregator. Yeah, for sure. So, every now and then I'll be like I don't do it as much with my my narrative episodes but every now and then I will do a topic and I for example when I was doing like mathematics it was doing some research and I was like, oh the Wikipedia page for mathematics is very light and I'll just throw some stuff in there, but I don't put near as much effort into it as I used to because I used to do it a lot. That was like kind of my thing for my 2011 to like mm..

"It's know. This is what that particular subset of the Greeks may have thought so definitely gotta take with a grain of salt. Yeah. I'm over the gender expectations like for meal and for female it kind of depends on the city state and it also kind of depends on how much Credence you put into the sources and that's kind of back to what we say like five people on Athens. If you read xenophon like an Oma kiss, which is where this is house household unit family know most like laws or Traditions. So it's like basically where we get the word economics kind of talks about like how an ideal woman the wife should be but like again, he's a rich guy like this is kind of it's not is it how was in reality? Like you look at the archaeological evidence Page look at logic like if you were poor it probably was a completely different Circumstance the women weren't secluded like xenophon may have you believe they would have had to be out and about work because their family needed them to survive. They were poor you have to look at the sources and just kind of be like, all right, is this logical and some of them some of its know this is more of like what they thought it should be like so again Spartanburg additionally is known as a city state that would have more freedoms for women the women weren't so sort of secluded. But again in Athens, it just depends on the time. You're talking about for talking about classical Athens you have this ideal where they were just kind of citizens who you had babies with and they ran the household they did the Ouija they managed the slaves. They were excluded from certain from a local rights. But again, they had power they had certain powers when it came to religious rights. It just depends on the city state and also it just depends on whether you kind of believe the sources or not. But again, it would not be the same for like a 2020 woman going back. It would be completely kind of sheltered no matter where you fall on that spectrum of whether they were secluded or they actually had more freedom. It's definitely not like it isn't twenty years. No matter where you go back in ancient Greece. It would definitely would have been crappier for a woman. Yeah, I mean in Sparta you had more relatives freedom but like Sparta was also like a totalitarian state wage. So is anyone really free in a totalitarian state? I would suppose I guess it just depends on what your philosophy of them is on that. They had women at least according to the sources again off the women would have children and then their children basically were wardens of the state and were designed to be soldiers again how accurate that is is another question. You don't really have the traditional family structure that you think of now where it's like the men were off training doing calisthenics hunting and that sort of thing and children are ripped at the age of seven and had to go through training as well. So it was kind of yeah, you had a lot of Fringe based upon your system, but are you really free and that sort of system? So I guess it's that sort of philosophy. How do you look at it? I mean, wouldn't want to be a woman and it's hard to either. So if I if were to if I were to choose be dead, I would want to be an upper. I would want to be an upper-class rich man in and classical happens if I had to go back and only for a little while because when you talk about it be cities were they're not modern Thursdays..

"Like, it just seemed like it seems so like primordial like the beginning of things where I mean plenty of things started in Rome, but I mean like with you see a grease it's it's a foundation of lot of the things that we do and in the ancient near East and other ancient cultures as well. But with Rome the Republic I enjoy your building things up and but then the Empire is just kind of kind of stagnant and I mean that's generalizing. It's kind of stagnant and then you just basically log The Narrative of like one Emperor does something and then he's killed off by people and then replaced with another Emperor and then goes towards out east and then gets killed off again, it's to me it just wasn't as exciting and increase it was the it just it just aroused aroused me more like my my intellectual curiosity and when I was in Rome I loved her own but was always fascinated by Renaissance room more than like emotional realm. I always say if I were to do another podcast it would probably like the Renaissance Italy. It would not be ancient Rome. I don't know I've actually have been getting big into the ancient Middle East especially specifically Persia lately. So I've always so I'm really big into ancient Persia as well which is kind of above the office right now, but I mean guess but like you're going to say grease it's you kind of really have to study Rome like I studied ancient Roman courses. I I've read all the authors like I teach High School class on Ancient birth. Like you kind of you have to know the stuff cuz some of the a lot of the things are very interchangeable. They're very different and a lot of aspects but they're also you know, there's a lot of similarity between there and I mean Grease long as I'm sure you're well aware has influenced from culture quite a bit and vice versa. Yeah and grease was a part of her own. So I guess you technically can't study Greece without studying Rome. Yeah. Do you mind telling us a bit about the origin story of Greece? You mean like where the Greeks came from? You know where they came from? If I'm not mistaken the Romans that sprung out from Romulus and Remus. Well according to their yet their mythology. So the Greeks yeah, they had a creation story they hesiod theogony is probably the most well-known version though. There are others other Cosmic. Theogony. She's a believe that they came from an ancestor of one the gods that you know, Zeus the heroes and so forth. They had this whole elaborate mythology, which is you know, something also I was super interesting as a kid Greek mythology or a little bit as a kid, but not a huge when I got to college. Their origin stories they're so they're not really called the Greeks per se. They didn't call themselves Greek. That was a little romance. It was the name of the Romans gave them. It's the modern Greece. They were called the hellenes their country was hell off, but they weren't United. They weren't like a unified people like politically. I mean, they had a similar culture similar religion similar in those aspects in other languages, but they weren't like ever entirely unified even even when you think of like a unified grease in the popular conception like, oh the Persian Wars it was only like 30% of the Greeks that actually came together to fight against the Persians. There were many Greeks on the Persian side and there were many that were neutral they were politically disjointed and a lot of that has to do with typography greased when you think about this you think of modern Greece, but the Greek world was all over the Mediterranean and black seas, and they're scattered everywhere and hundreds and hundreds of islands. Maybe even thousands too many wage..

I'm so excited to have you here with us today Ryan and learn about you and your show. Thank you so much for having me. I'm glad you reached out. This is I'm excited that there are younger enthusiasm enthusiastic historians getting into the podcasting game. Well, I heard that you originally back in college you weren't you didn't sneak off as a Classics major you were a chem major? Yes. That's true. I I was the first person my family to go college. I had no idea really why I wanted to do. I was just good at chemistry. So I started out doing that many really like it per se long story short. I went through a a Winding Road of different topics that I am I actually was planning on going to law school at one point and then I ended up falling into Classics when I got into well for a few reasons. I came across 300 the movie. Led me to take watch take a Greek history course. I started taking Latin cuz when I cuz it was like, oh pre-med pre-law sort of thing. I was like, oh Latin would be useful. It just kind of a perfect storm came about and I was actually like wasn't sure what I was going to do. I was like, oh pre-law or grad school, and then I studied abroad in Greece and Rome for a year, and that was my senior year and that basically still had that I want to go grad school and then when I got to grad school, I realized there weren't that many jobs. So I ended up. Unfortunately. I had I took some time off for some personal reasons and then just decided not to go back and then eventually I start the podcast as a way to keep my love of the ancient world going so and with an alternate careers or so just now you mentioned you studied abroad both in Rome and in Greece. So, how do you end up settling for ancient Greece and not sure? Room so it's a complicated story. I guess grease was always my favorite. I think it had more to do with that was the first one that I really fell in love with and bought. It just seemed more foreign to me. It was different to me. It was more exciting. I guess to me like the Romans. I like Roman Republic in history. Not the Empire. Yeah, not the Empire so much. I'm I've always been someone who's like a big fan of like the origins of things.

I just usually get I will in my podcast episodes I'll give both I'll give a dissenting opinions and approving opinions and I'll kind of just be like, I think it might be the former latter and then move on right? Yeah. Yep. I'm sorry. What was that? I said at least I do that now early on in the podcast. I was pretty much just like kind of picking and choosing what I thought was appropriate and just yeah with it now. I'm a little bit off more like into the both sides of the status and talking about in digging deeper. As long as you don't get into the these people think there was an Atlantis and all that and then everybody knows that's what drives me crazy that kind of stuff. I mentioned that briefly when it came to creat how the earthquake or I'm sorry the volcano in Santorini. One of the theories is that may have led to the story of Atlantis, but pretty much most of Atlantis is just an allegory that you see in Play-Doh and you shouldn't be taken seriously, you know, but I know I know I would just need like a tourist guide for when you go to like Santorini or Creed to go and you say you get to say read the Lost Island of Atlantis. Yeah and by suck. Indice and buy some merchandise and go check out the volcano and all the litter in it. Yeah, you can swim out and see the volcano when I was there smoking still active. Yeah, it's cool though. So, yeah, so this out he Allah story is you know, kind of like maybe it's funny because because then they're talking about the colony of malicious, right?

"They had to be able poke in the eyes and gresel and everything else though man handle combat when the when the Phalanx breaks down exactly. That's a good segue because you know going decade-by-decade. Sometimes we miss the big the big things in history, you know a place where I'm looking for the big sweep of History type of things certain themes themes. Yes, you know when you're going so topic of our episode today is dead. The relationship with the Greeks and the near East prior to the Persian invasions like in my school days. I remember being told or given the impression at least the Persians just found out about five weeks after the ionian revolt and then the mainland Greece, you know had eight of them and then the Persian sort of said, well, who are these guys? Let's go teach them a lesson. Yeah. I mean I learned summer. I learned some pretty odd things to Growing Up A lot of it was like this whole Greek Miracle thing where the Greek civilization came out of nowhere where in fact there was so much continuity continuity between the the near East and the Greeks and both cultures kind of pushed off of each other and influence the other culture during the Iron Age. I mean shoot the Phoenicians and the Greeks. I'm sure you've talked about that and then the trade through trade even as far back the Mycenaean. They had the connections with the near East so there's dead. There there's been a connection there. The Greek Greek soldiers fought is mercenaries in pretty much every major battle and near Eastern history. You could either even even there they may be mentioned or you can kind of just assumed that they were there just I mean you don't want to assume but you can kind of speculate that that's the case and in some cases they were even outright mentioned we have even Greek sources mentioning they were so like, you know, they're they're involved. So there's no way like that famous story later on when the when the Spartans and the Athenian ambassadors go to the Persian think if I think it's dries, yeah dries and they're like who are these people? You know, you can take that with a grain of salt because they obviously would have known these people were dead who said who are these people the Persians or the Greeks the Persians write such a yeah, these who are these people like they would they were I mean, obviously the Greeks at that point where like small dog Cato's to use that analogy iridium compared to a lot of the civilizations that were in the Persian Empire, but they would have known who they were sure. That's the that's the that's the point and there's not a lot of we don't have a lot of documentation on it, but there's a little nuggets here and there then there's archaeology we found and it did some research on it wasn't as long I mean team Cambridge ancient history has a whole chapter on it, but I don't know I find Cambridge ancient history hard to follow. I have to read the chapters like four times until I can figure out what they're trying to say..

"I think that is more of propaganda after the fact. But don't quote me on that because I'm out of my depth the moment. Of course. This is what happens when you get to podcasters talking about something that's just outside of the range of what they've actually covered in the podcast so far. Seat That certainly covers all of the thematic and. Political topics I wanted to get your input on and. Get a Greek perspective. So to speak for mine listeners Is there anything you'd like to add? To our conversation about Greece in Persia. No I now I I'm just. Thankful I'm appreciative of you invited me on it I'm glad you started the podcast because I only covered the Greeks or I'm sorry I only covered the Persians maybe about. Four episodes. So, I mean obviously excluding the Persian wars but I mean like the Early History Persia. So it's been, it's been interesting to listen to like full-on detailed. Of like. Persian provinces in Persian. Cultural stuff as opposed to just covered things that you typically would find in. Herodotus. And or Stenius once he becomes. More relevant I suppose. So Yeah Yeah I am much more at I. Think I've talked. Quite a bit. Yeah Well thank you for the compliment to because. Obviously podcast was one of the great influences on. Figuring out how to get mine started and I certainly, WanNa. Thank you whether I include this in the final product or not. Being the great source of promoting the show especially early on because I really do attribute a large portion of my audience to you. You're welcome Yeah. I I would imagine of people are interested in ancient. Greece history they tend to be entrant ancient history as well as they have to kind of fit whether you like it or not tend to be in the mindsets stuck together. Thanks to Herodotus and the sources. Unfortunately there's no native. Persian historical ancient it came in and source that. All we have is the Greeks so. Persia Persians stuck with the Greeks. For better. Every now, and there's a hint of like some kind of independent tradition that POPs up in one of the Roman sources where someone like Diodoros, Nicholas, Vasquez will mention something that nobody else has ever talked about and we think maybe there was some kind of oral tradition or Britain tradition that we've lost but ultimately were stuck with the Greeks for better or worse and it's important to know what their opinions of the Persians were. So thank you for coming on it talking to us about that.

"I mean sure. There's a lot of great things, but there's a lot of great things foundational period in Archaic. There's quite a bit of accomplishment in Helena sectarian too. So it's definitely in this historic graphical bias it's like, okay, this Zine. So then it the old period in. Yeah, beforehand. So you look at it that way. Yeah, and I think there's something to be said for will of course, historians prefer the classical period. It's when they started writing all of the history down. So we're obviously extremely biased towards. The sources were actually able to get us out of. Now you mentioned that. In your podcast. You're. Getting into the Peloponnesian war in the Persians or about to get involved and I think that's a good thing to touch on to is that when I get this episode into my podcast feed It's going to probably be right before we start Xatzis invasion of Greece. And for a lot of people and even some very popular books. That's kind of the end of what people know about. Persia in general and Persian involvement in Greece. But that's not really the end of the story. So Going into the classical period as we've been calling it, do the Greek. What's going on in Greece and how much are they ignoring persia or how much are the Persian still involved? So. Persians always there whether actively or in the background of a law on foreign policy decisions throughout the fifth century see as as we mentioned the whole entire impetus of the Deli in. League that the the Athenians. Took control of the spartans it did it first they took control of the defense afterwards until Posse Aska booted out for Dina the arrogant Spartan leader in anyway but. But the aristotle. And the establishment of Elian. Lee, and that eventually in you know in, they're trying to keep the Fenian out of sorry and they're trying to keep the Persians out of the Aegean the that part of the Mediterranean there. There's become this the naval kind of hot slash Cold War going on throughout the fifth century. It's basically the Persians and the Greeks are technically at war from I guess you can say four, ninety nine to With at four, forty, nine, I believe is when there's either an official or unofficial piece on that's established Collars are generally or they're generally torn on that because it to brief mentions, but we won't go into that anyway. So there's like an unofficial piece and then. You See. For I mentioned earlier, four, sixty, seven, the battle you need on. And then there's kind of like this law period There's some fighting near Cyprus the fighting over the island of Cyprus time on event. That's where he dies at A. Four fifty S I believe it is early four, Fifty S. And then you see this the. An effort in a four fifty, you see the outbreak of what's typically called the first. Peloponnesian War to distinguish between the the later Peloponnesian more famous On the SPARTANS really don't get involved in this one until towards the end when the Athenians develop their way, they conquer a lot of places in central Greece and the kind of extend themselves a little bit too far. They actually they. There's also neal you'll get an additional podcasts. There's A. There's a revolt in Egypt that the Athenians end up helping out against Persia and they get some of their fleet a fleet destroy down there. So there they fight the per the Athenians are fighting the Persians. In Egypt. In the fifties. And as well. So by the time you get about four, forty, nine, four, forty, seven actually is been..

"Think is what does it mean to be Greek in the context of the early to Middle Fifth Century I guess is about where we're going to be placing this episode. So. This is a tricky question. I took a graduate course on on the Greeks, and like the entire first week was what was Greek identity It's it's a tricky to answer like a everyone always points to Herodotus I think in the book six or something don't quote me but he whenever the the Greeks are coming together, it might be book five but whenever the Greeks are coming together in their council Boaz the Persians invading he uses the Greek word called Hellinikon which roughly translated as like Greek nece and he says something along the lines of I'm paraphrasing it's common customs, common language religion, a common values and the Greeks but that's the first time we see that word and so that's in the classical period. But you see. In a comes about because the Greeks aren't what we kind of think about as modern Greece actually in Greece is actually Greek is actually a that's not what they call themselves. They were Hellenes people came from Helen. Not. The Woman who started the Trojan War but Like the the ancestral of son of ion or a ancestral project, her one, the had the the tribes that were there ion doors and all of them. But they Nicole their. Country Hellas. Greek succumb later from the Romans and whatnot but. They weren't like what we would think of as like modern Greek. There was no geographical boundaries they spread throughout the Mediterranean into the Waxy region when they call it is. So it's this. It's this very controversial. What is it means the Greek? Who who was was was Greek identity that important to them, more it Greek identity for them was. So you get the word barbarian non Greeks Barbara Roy people who spoke a non had Barbarian diction didn't speak read Bar Barbara shows up in homer it's talking about these carryings who Sounded like there was just speaking bar Bar Bar, and that's where you can get the word So it comes to delineate between Greek speakers, angry speakers. But it's The identity is it it? It's tricky. It's because most most of the Greeks were not they were not unified politically at least until like the Macedonian period and the only really came kind of quasi unified wendy like when they're pet external threats and even then like with the Persians invaded, which you'll get to in your podcast eventually, it was only like not even. I'm probably actually overstating it, but I don't even think of it was like thirty percent of the Greeks actually. Came together. Some of them were neutral act most of them a good chunk of that actually joined the Persian side. Some and most were neutral though it was just. So, it wasn't like a Greek alliance. It was like a small amount of Greek aligns, but what meant and I sale that but it was like, what meant the most to them was more of their police identity more than a Greek identity So you're an Athenian, your spartan or your been that meant more than this over our overall arching notion of I am a Greek, there was really.

"Everyone I'm Trevor Kelly, was him to a special episode of the history of Persia podcast and the history of ancient. Greece. As history of Persia rapidly approaches sees invasion of the Greek mainland and arguably a sort of beginning for one hundred and fifty years of on and off conflict. In the Aegean, I wanted to get an expert opinion on the so-called Yona. So, please enjoy this detailed conversation between myself and the excellent. Ryan stick. So really what I want this to be is a conversation about Greece, sort of as it relates to Persia, but also what it is on its own because it's going to be such massive cog in the machine of the Persian Empire for most of my series. But I feel like you're probably much better equipped to explain what it really means to be Greek than I am given that you are the most of the history of ancient Greece But I think I could you introduce yourself everyone? I know a lot of my listeners overlap with your listeners but I'm sure there are some people who haven't heard quite yet. Yeah. My Name's Ryan. I am the creator host of the history of Ancient Greece podcast. On twitter at Greek history pod I know that's confusing for some. Grease history. pod was already taken so. it's not anymore. So I was thinking about switching back, but that's a digression anyway. But Yeah I I cover the history of ancient Greece from. Technically from the Paleolithic Neolithic period to the plan is to act him but I mean I only spent. One twenty minute episode of the stone. Age. So. Technically covered it but and we did a few episodes in the bronze. Age. currently right now we are in the classical period the pope nation war and the Persians are starting to get involved in the war so. There's some overlapping there I I I do I. Do kind of what Trevor does. He seems to have similar methodology I do chronological, but also fi medical when it's appropriate. So since it's the classical period and we have a lot more sources, I've been I did like a whole cultural tour of classical period. So I've been in the classical period for like two years. Now specifically have been in the fifth century for like two years. Now, I will be in the classical period for a while. If you consider the classical period to Alexandra in the conquest of the came at empire which we do so I'll be in the classical period for a couple more years. Oh Great. The yeah. The fifth century is kind of a monster topic to cover in Greek history I. Think. We have few cities in Herodotus, the to the earliest Greek historians and the two main ones. xenophon comes later he still technically fit century but. Of It so like you for the first time, you have these like dedicated histories. To a century though obviously herodotus has you know goes back a little bit further beyond that. Earlier than that to cover the rise of the Persians as I'm sure you're. You're well aware of Herodotus, his listeners. To quote myself as Herodotus says. Insert most of the podcast. The first thing I'd really like you to maybe explain to me and my listeners because obviously I got my ba in classics and what I'm in Grad School for but. I you've engaged with it much more in depth than I have I.
