New report states waste tanks should not be left at Hanford nuclear site

"A new report is startling. Northwest watchdogs who say high level tank. Waste should not be left permanently. At hanford correspondent anna king has more in the waning days of the trump administration. The federal energy department is mulling what to do about some leftover high level waste in aging underground tanks at hanford one new federal report contemplates whether it should be crowded and left in place. Seattle based watchdog. Tom carpenter says grouting would leave a lot of waste behind including radioactive goo below the tanks that's leaked into the soil not far from the columbia river. Concrete won't last very long These portrayals are far far too dangerous to entrust to that at form and sitting on top of one of the largest freshwater aquifers in in the state carpenter says hanford is not the place for permanent storage of radioactive waste because it's vulnerable the volcanic eruptions and earthquakes.

"This year the US is facing an unprecedented shortage poll workers because of the covid nineteen pandemic, most poll workers, they tend to be a little bit older and a lot of them have added to step away because they're in this address category, not enough poll workers means closed polling places, long delays as we've already seen in many of the primary elections. Agony along with a coalition of businesses and nonprofits launch power the pulse to recruit a new wave of workers. And that might mean you. Jersey considered help ensure safe fair election with less than forty days to recruit in over two hundred, fifty, thousand, two, hundred, fifty, thousand workers needed. Please consider please visit power the polls dot org today. Things Patagonia. WHO Your this to the factories production of tape even. With additional support from co at racks because you love your Bible. And kicking horse coffee. Wake, up, and kick. Ass. Before, we start the show today wanted to let you all know that we are looking for stories for the annual tales of tariffs. So scary I know. So if you've got a tale that will send us running to buy brighter headlamp or out of the woods or do our car to shiver and wanted, please send it email us at editor duct tape and beer dot com that's an editor at duct tape. Then beer dot com we need all submissions by September thirtieth. Hafetz how's it going? It's good. I have totally blown off work and instead of being in studio I'm in a cabin on a lake with my kids. So there's noise and background I apologize sounds rough. It is because. It's not rough at all. It's actually. I don't know. Yeah. It's so schools about to start or not start. So I figured we'd get bookish for a second. Ready. Random question. Did you ever studied. Latin Korea. Heck no I expanded because you can actually use it but that's a a bunch of my friends did take Latin and I think it was actually really useful because you can use it to figure out the roots of all the words in a lot. Well, I guess most of the Romance Languages so I think it's actually kind of a cool language. Your favorite word from Spanish. I always really liked the word more Seattle. That means bat or cripple skoula which is like dusk I. Just think there I think all Spanish is very beautiful but those ones in particular. I always thought were really pretty how you. Creir to believe. At. First when I was learning Spanish had a really tough time distinguishing it from. which is to create I. Know My printing nunciature is terrible. It's never really good at it but for some reason, those two words always stuck with me because. I would get them wrong in the beginning and I had to work my mind to correct that and so create. And cray are. They're so close because they come from the same Latin building blocks creo Latin for create which in Latin context is even deeper which is to make grow And Credo for believe and I like how close those two words are belief creation. which when you think about it is such a chicken and egg thing in this never ending cyclical spiral when you think about it through the Lens of creativity. You know a lot of you out there. You know that this podcast is created by the small creative company called duck tape and beer. You know I think we're known for our films. We do a lot of other things like create environmental campaigns and cal companies get better at finding and working towards values but it's it's funny because we've been doing it for ten years and I think a lot of people don't really know what we do and we even have a tough time talking about it because it's kind of morphing thing and I've been thinking about it about a company a lot and I've been thinking about those two words. CREO create an Credo believe. I think that there. At the root of what? Our company does we create so that we can believe so that others can believe that we are connected that we have agency to find joy in a troubled world to make impact on a troubled world. And that we aren't some data points on the spreadsheet. I've seen the power of what happens when a small team. Begins to believe in its potential in its shared work and the people that we create for and in that feeling is why I do my job. If you could even call it that because it doesn't really feel like job at feels like magic when it's working. Right now and I really WANNA put this in context because we are not frontline workers. We haven't lost loved ones like other people we know to this pandemic and in the long run this is small potatoes stuff. But right now you know the economic fallout of the pandemic it's impacting tons of us. It's taking its toll financially creatively emotionally, and it feels like. We are in this little, very well built boat in the middle of the storm and were lined up on these waves and we've got a course, and if we can just last till, Don we might make it through intact. and. At this stage of the journey. Had you know I can tell it feels dark like we've been working hard the adrenals worn off and we're looking hoping for that thin sliver of light out on the horizon. and. We are tired of being attacked by zoom calls and text threads. It's hard to create in that setting month in and month out and I feel like it's harder. To know why we believe in ourselves hasn't been that way in the past and it it sucks again is up like losing a loved one batter. Versus Financial Security Bad But it feels like. Lost something and I imagine a lot of people. are going through the same thing. Succumb to those words like. CRATO KRILL. That route that deep tap root of belief creativity brings us and I want that back. This question. It keeps like Ping Pong around in my head. How do I believe in the ship? How do I help others around me believe in what we're all doing together And and I've been struggling with it in a get this sense of resignation I'm coming up with all these complex solutions and. It kinda hit me. Maybe the answer is is simpler. The answer is to create and not just create create together. And that is the path towards shared belief. Credo. CREO. Go together. Changing. The subject what do you know about yacht clubs fits? Very little but. More than I need to know I would say I just. I'M NOT GONNA say Yacht Club Kinda guy well, clearly, you don't know about all of the clubs out there because today we're going to hear a story about a very special kind of yacht club. In this club sharing a belief takes them a long way. And I. Think. It might be exactly the story that you and I and all of us need to hear right now. And Trust me, it's pretty Dang dirtbag. Okay. I'm excited. I'm fiscal hall I'm Cordelia Czars you're listening to the dirtbag dairies. Bailey is like boating hell. There is no water around us at all. We're just in the mountains. Toilet. Beautiful. But not think about in at all when you think of Platte Canyon. High School. This is Steve Hanford. He teaches science at Platte. Canyon High School in Bailey Colorado a small town fifty miles southwest of Denver in the heart of the rocky mountains. It's the only high school in town and has about two hundred and fifty students. The school itself Ness between highway two, eighty five, and the steep granite walls of Platte Canyon a winding ravine leading up to Kenosha pass Ponderosa's cling to the dry soil and their branches grazed the second story windows a small creek runs along the highway but apart from that, the land feels pretty parched. It's the kind of place you might see a mountain lion during lunch break. The kids here are there's a lot of representation in the gun and Hook crowd. And so you got people that go elk hunting they elect to go fishing. This is Mr. Hanford colleague. KIP. Who teaches history business and construction at the high school the kids here are rural. So if you say yacht it almost like. rubs on the wrong way immediately. which. Is Why on the second floor of this Colorado high school you might be surprised to find a classroom filled entirely with boat building supplies, maps of the ocean and a giant sign tacked to the wall that reads no one outside this room believes we will succeed. It might sound farfetched but you've just stumbled into the headquarters of the Platte Canyon High School. Yacht Club. Very beginning of this whole project started in a meeting and we're just shooting the breeze and I was talking about my brother having a mid life crisis and. Like yeah he wants to buy a boat moved to Costa Rica and then Kip said you don't have to buy a boat there plenty of free boats out there and the school counselor does I have a boat he can have. And so the next thing I know. Keeps Gone Hey. If your brother gets a boat, we could do the race to Alaska. Okay. So let's back up a little Mr Hanford and Mr. Ottesen they both have a lot of boating experience Mr Hanford spent ten years wrath guiding in Colorado before he became a teacher and Mr Ottesen grew up in California surfing, and then later sailing and working on fishing boats in Alaska. Mr Autism News this race, the race to Alaska, which is a competition for non motorized boats from port. Townsend. Washington to Ketchikan. Alaska. We even did a story on the first person to do it on a paddleboard a few years ago. It's seven hundred fifty miles through some of the most gnarly and beautiful sections along the Pacific coast. It's North America's longest human and wind powered race Mr Ottesen had dreamed of doing this race for a while and now his colleague Mr Hanford seemed like the perfect teammate to presents. This idea to manage just seemed like an adventure and I'm always up for an adventure and so then I started diving into and got really excited. But it was a big commitment. The race involved a decent amount of risk. They'd be boating unsupported through a section of ocean known for its nasty squalls, strong tidal currents, and Wales. They'd have to leave their families in Colorado and be in Alaska for at least a few weeks. Mister Hanford and Mr Ottesen set their sights on another race a shorter race. So they wouldn't be gone for as long. It's organized by the same people as race to Alaska. It's called seventy, forty eight and is pretty much how it sounds seventy miles in forty eight hours. It's a point to point in Washington state starting in Tacoma and ending in. Port Townsend. It's human power only. So only boats like kayaks stand up paddle boards and rowboats no sailboats the idea to raise seventy, forty, eight took seed in. September, twenty eighteen, the race was set for the last day of May the following year Mr Hanford and Mr Ottesen had a full seven months before the race. So they thought maybe we'll build our own boat for the race. They're both pretty handy, and then because Mr teaches construction at the high school, it dawned on him that maybe they could get the students involved too. And KIP was, I really want to build boats with the students and I was like I. Really WanNa do seventy, forty eight, and so we just put those two ideas together. We'll take the students will build a boat and then we'll do seventy, forty eight. Mr Ottesen email the race director to see if he could sign a bunch of high school students up for the event. The director gave an immediate thumbs up. I think I was in Calculus class and Mr Ottesen came into just like bother us every day and one day he came in he was like, Hey, you're gonNA paddle seventy miles with us straight in a boat that we're going to build the most like. I'm not sure about that Mr. audited. But he was like Yep we're going to do it, and that's that's when I first heard about it. That's Sydney Mimosa and she was a junior at Platte Canyon High School in two thousand eighteen. Here's Mr Hanford again I think we pitched it to the kids in October. We had a lunch meeting and we handpicked twenty five kids and invited to my room for lunch and then pitched the idea. And some of them are like you're crazy just walked out and then the crazy ones who stayed was like this is our team. Mr Ottesen and Mr Hanford told the students who stayed. It's pretty simple. We Build A. Stitch and glue plywood and wire nothing too technical. We sign up for the race and that's it. Here's a student named coyotes in he was in that first October meeting and a sophomore at the time he's also Mr Ottesen son, it was surprising to be. Hearing about okay. Yeah. We're GONNA take a whole bunch of students in this boat that we haven't built. And we're GONNA paddle seventy miles in forty eight hours or less. It was a bit of a shock, your Sydney. Again, we had never built before I've never built anything really sides the shelf and a birdhouse. So. It was like definitely a little bit crazy and this is amy present a sophomore at the time. I. Didn't think we were going to actually be able to build about or row seventy miles in forty dollars like there was not. Possible in my head. Mr Ottesen assure them that the building process wouldn't be that hard and ask for the race seventy miles forty eight hours with the speed we have to go and I was kind of walking around the room like at this speed we could finish right at the snail's pace and they're were thinking we could do that. But then the whole you know all the the nitty-gritty started coming out where we go to the bathroom. If it's two days, I'M GONNA have to go to the bathroom. What are we going to eat? What if it gets dark? You know it will get dark. You know all of the question started coming out out of the twenty five students in that first meeting twelve of them said, no, thank you. This sounds nuts but the other thirteen they were intrigued they span the grades from freshman to senior and we're mix of boys and girls. They had enough respect for their teachers to know that as far flung as their ideas might seem they were actually serious about it. Yes. They lived in a landlocked state. Many of the students had never even seen the ocean before much less built a boat to paddle on it. But they knew the tenacity of their teachers personalities well, enough to figure there was a chance. This could actually happen. What would it take? Well, they wanted to find out. Whispers circulated through the school hallways and among those thirteen students a giddy fervor began to grow. They met after school and began developing their plans and put together a few workbenches Mr Hanford slap classroom to prepare for the billed. As a joke Mr Hanford Mr Addison and the thirteen students started calling themselves the Platte Canyon High School Yacht Club in some people were like saying, you don't have yachts up they're like, well, no no. It's the joke man. Song. After the initial recruitment meeting Mr. Hanford and Mr Ottesen gathered the parents whose kids would be on the team. They told them the plan to build a boat and race it in Washington the following spring. Then they pitched their idea to the school administration. We definitely had awesome support from the parents from our administration. and. There were there were definitely some safety concerns. But for the most part I think people just didn't really understand what we were doing. And so. They were as worried about it is maybe they would've been like I. Know There's a school in Chinachem, which is by Port Townsend who really wants to do the race with students in their district like no way you can't do. It does too many issues and so. We were able to overcome some of those because people just. Aren't on the water all the time and we're like, okay, sounds good. Were Your Life Jacket. The Bailey School district was a tougher sell when Mr Hanford and Mr Ottesen brought up the race with the district lawyer she said, no, no way too many liability issues. What if it could drowns or gets clobbered by a paddle we'll get sued. Mr Ottesen replied well for doing this race. So I guess I'll personally assume all liability and the parents can sue me if that happens. The district lawyer choked a little at that gave them a bunch of waivers for the parents to sign and sent them on their merry. Way. Of Parents and administration got on board just because the thought of a bunch of mountain kids building a boat and racing it was kind of hilarious. Fewer people actually believed it would happen like the school principal and Superintendent Mike Schmidt. Deny it but we really think that after we told them, we were going to build boats and do this race. He thought it wouldn't happen and here's this kind of like. Okay. This this'll fizzle out. Go Away. Don't have to worry about it. They got that attitude a lot interest but incredulity like when they applied for a local grant helps funds school projects related to the outdoors. We thought, of course, we're GONNA get the money. You know why wouldn't we get the money? We knew every single person on that committee all the people decide whether or not you get the grant or friends of ours. So we thought definitely we're getting that and then we find out that they were debating whether or not. We'd actually pull it off and they kind of hesitated to give us the money and so that that really fired me up. That's when the sign went up. No one outside this room believes you will succeed. And just like that, they had a mission. Prove them wrong. Then, the administration start coming up. Kennedy hearing a lot of sawing and they're hearing or there's probably smelling Dustin. poxy going on in this room. By Christmas break a lot had happened. The Yacht Club got the local grant for twenty five, hundred dollars. They posted on social media and started a gofundme page and raised eighteen thousand dollars Mr Hanford and Mr Ottesen ordered design plans for forty foot dragon boat, which is a forty foot canoe, and then they tweaked the design so that it could fit thirteen students and five adult supervisors. The idea was that they'd build double outriggers on either side of the canoe, turning it into what's called a Trimaran. So think three canoes the longest one in the middle and two shorter ones on either side all attached together by wooden planks. Mr Ottesen and Mr Hanford converted a stem lab into a workshop broaden tools and purchased plywood poxy and wire. The. On the horizon in late May Twenty nineteen Mr Ottesen and Mr Hanford wanted to have the boat finished by March so that they could find a place to test in the water. So when the students back to school after Christmas break, it was go time we told the kids all hands on deck. You know no pun intended we have to get this thing done. and. So we started building really quickly. Here are the students again kyw Sydney and amy we. Decided to save a whole lot of money by not buying marine plywood and we just bought I think it was a c yeah. Just regular regular construction plywood from hardware store. We're pretty well. The building process included cutting out shapes from the plywood, stitching them together with wire and then fiberglass thing it wants the shape was set. So it's a very easy process. So it basically takes boat-building and takes it out of the lair of the bearded pipe smoking guy and brings it to everybody which I think probably is disconcerting to snobs but it worked very well for the kids. The students in the yacht club came in during their free periods lunch break, and after school most students spent a couple of hours working on the boat each day. What was the hardest part of Bo building? Wanting to kill the other people. Cyber glossing. Because I don't think we ever figured out a good way to do that because if you put if you paint a poxy onto the inside of the whole and then lay the fiberglass into it, it gets stuck in it just is a mess. But if you do it the opposite way, it also turns out to be. The, bow and sterns of all three canoes were identical. The first one we all figured out together and helped a lot and then after that, it's like, okay you guys know how to do it. Go. Nuts. The students learned a lot by trial and error. Didn't we drill a hole in the whole both? The. Side of the. Redid. that. Probably. Like wasting poxy because we. Huge Puddles of a poxy on the floor, just from people like slopping it on the boat and then just letting it to rip off the side. But despite some setbacks, the students and their teachers made steady progress, the outlandish triple whole design started taking shape. Put it together somewhere, and so we came out in the hallway. How much room to a have we sat down in the boat had paddles and said, we have room to paddle on each side and are we interfering with each other? We had the kids sitting in the boat. If the kids weren't here, we had the custodian and the boat we had to figure out how much room we had and how big this thing was going to be. In the rocky mountains, it would be winter. Until April, all the lakes and rivers would stay frozen up until a few weeks before the race. But Mr Ottesen and Mr Hanford were anxious to test the boat on water and to teach the students how to paddle. So they planned a spring break trip to California in March they'd use. Mr. Hanford truck get a trailer and hall the time ran all the way to Dan appoint a coastal town just south of Los Angeles. As the trip approach Mr Hanford Mr Ottesen and the students hustled to finish construction. Scramble was big time scramble. There are lots of people who are just like well, what are you GonNa to do? Not Ready. For Spring break and Kippen I just kept saying no choice the boat will will be ready. Long afternoons of Sanding and fiber lossing spilled into the weekends Mr Handford and Mr Ottesen went to pick up a cargo trailer that someone donated only to realize it was too short for the time ran. Cut a section out of the front of it. We got to build a box so the boat can stick out. Massive thing coming out of the small trailer like a clown car or something, but it just worked out. On March twentieth they loaded the timer and into the trailer Mr Hanford drove the truck and Mr Ottesen piled the yacht club students, six parents and one other teacher into a district suburban. They drove together through a full whiteout on hoosier pass West to. California. A few days later, they pulled into a group campsite at Doe Heaney State Beach Near Dana Point and unloaded the boat and their gear. The next day after they got some food and rest, it was time to test their behemoth in the waves. Launching the boat for the first time that was a really powerful moment that was so cool. And it was just so emotional for us just to. Be there and have it done. We've made it. They pushed the boat into the water and the students took some tentative paddle strokes. Yourselves in the back. So we would be talking the whole time like dude, doing it did we're here the ocean man like Lick your hand at salty you know this is we're making this happen. It's going right now we're going pretty fast. Her vote. Total dirtbag boat, it's not beautiful and. Because we don't have thousands and thousands of dollars pour into that thing to make it. Beautiful. But it works and the kids made it. Excitement grew the further they paddled from the coast, the students coordinated their strokes and picked up speed as the waves billowed and slapped over their bows. The ocean sprayed in their faces, laughing the students from Colorado broke out in a chorus of songs from Moana. We had a wail surface in front of us and I was like. I couldn't even get the words out. There's a whale right there, and some of them saw it and everyone freaked out like there's a whale on my God you know, and then we saw a big herring ball. So bunch of birds around this one area where there's a herring herring ball in the water and I said, let's go into the ball over there because they'll be porpoises and so we go there and courses porpoises and we start paddling and they're riding swimming along with us were playing Bohemian rhapsody on the speaker and we got these porpoises and I'm just like this is the best time of my life. Felt. For the rest of their weakened California Mr Hanford Mr Addison in the students went for long paddles during the day and camped on the beach at night. They laughed a lot played games didn't shower for a week. The students felt their arms grow stronger and the rhythms synchronized on the boat. One day they peddled twenty six miles in the morning which made all of them feel confident. They could finish seventy, forty eight in good time. They knew they had the distance and the endurance the one question mark that lingered was whether they had what it took to paddle through the night. The countdown to the race begins with a night on the water. That's coming up after a break stay with us.

In the weeks following their trip to California, they customized their seats and painted stripes the colors of the Colorado flag down the sides of the boat. One student free handed a line drawing of the mountains on the outrigger holes. Determined to prove the critics wrong. The Yacht Club decided to name their boat something that would represent their mission they stenciled on the center hole in bright red all caps the word credit mess which we think is Latin for we believe. Legal tells us. That's what it means here could mean something really inappropriate we don't know. In one of the final preparations for the race Mr Hanford Mr Ottesen planned and overnight training mission on Horse Tooth Reservoir outside of Fort Collins in early. May. Here are Sydney and amy again, we got there and but our vote together and everything seemed pretty good until it was like the middle of the night and amy behind me when I cry. Our boat was frozen. The whole side of it was just ice and like our hands. I thought I was going to drop my paddle. We went to school the whole day. You know got up early went to school pack. And then left for this trip. Absolutely often and so cold. It was the longest the students had paddled forty two miles through the night. They started at eight PM in the dark. Here's kyw. I started seeing stuff run in front of walls kind of like. I guess it kind of looked like wolves almost but like super long legs dislike. Stuff. We were out there on the water so I didn't fuel. Scared of it at all, but I definitely saw stuff knows thinking to myself. That's Curious I've never that was the first time I'd loosened dated from lack of serve. The students are remember that night as being pretty hellish paddling half asleep and losing feeling in their hands and feet from the unrelenting Colorado cold. But they celebrated as they watched the Sun Nudge over the eastern plain. Yeah and that was a moment whereas like Oh Man, we've got this right. We just paddle through the night like we did forty two miles we can do this. May Thirty First Twenty Nineteen Thirteen students from Platte Canyon Yacht. Club three of their teachers and to parents lined up in their boat credits at the start of seventy forty eight. There were one out of one hundred and eight boats in the race, and the next largest crew had six people compared to their eighteen. Nerves and excitement spread through the boat the at forty eight hours to paddle from Tacoma to Port Townsend through the puget sound along the way they'd have to pass by two points, which were boats anchored at designated locations along the route so that the race directors could keep track of all the boats and make sure that everyone was safe and I'm thinking as soon as they fire the gun, we're going to go and we can't stop the kids because they can't hear so many people and we have so much massive Nursia. We're just GONNA run over people. Like a Rome plowed right through the crowd and that's kind of what happened. Seven PM start gun fired a hundred eight votes charged forward through the water crowds cheered on the bank. Feeling the kick of adrenaline students lurched forward and Christmas part of the Sea of boats ahead of them. But we did hold back a little bit when we ran over the English guy. The Guy, a robot right in front of us. And I'm just like. And he got his or stock under US and we t-boned him and he turns to the girls in the front. It's like you're renting me over. Yeah. So we're like yelling stop saw. Eighteen people just going all out. Eventually, they managed to get off the British guys boat. They paddled steadily ahead and made good time through commencement bay framed against a snowy. Mount. Rainier towering in the background. They found their first point got the green light to continue north and headed through cobos passage as the sunset Mr Ottesen and Mr Hanford switched off navigating and steering from the back. Every thirty paddle? Strokes. Mr Hanford wife Melody Who paddled in the starboard outrigger would call hike. The rest of the team would respond Oh and they'd all switched sides. The last of the light rain from the sky and night settled in around the boat. They plan to only stop once. So they developed a brake system. So students could snack rest along the way. One of the kids had an alarm set every twenty minutes cdl break, and then the first person in each section would stop and take a break and get something to eat adjust their layers, get a drink and then start paddling again in the next person would start, and so it just kind of rolled back. Every three hours to people out of time would get a full twenty minutes to rest and we thought that people would kind eat more and get along break but almost to the T. everyone just curled up in a ball went to sleep right in the bottom of the boat. After a break on Blake, island midnight, which was around the twenty eight Mile Mark on the racecourse the students loaded back into the boat and grab their paddles for the next push north. Everyone. started feeling pretty wiped. Also the tide had switched. Now instead of paddling with the current, they had puddle against it the crawled past Bainbridge island and passed a Knob on the coast called point. No point. The Sun began to rise an illuminated a dense layer of fog. After point no point they had to navigate through the fog through a passage called the cut, which is a narrow gap between Indian island and the Olympic Peninsula. Mr Hanford and Mr Ottesen Houston APP during the race track the tides they knew that if they didn't hit the cut before the tide switched, they'd be paddling against a river of current in the opposite direction. At that point, we're telling the kids we gotta make the cut by this time or the current gonNA switch on us, and this was either like our best coaching moment or really a low point depending on who you talk to. We said no more breaks. We're paddling straight across this thing as fast as we can. So we can make it to the cat and we're like. There's no chance we're GONNA make it to the cut. The students gave it their all to make it through the narrow channel before the tide changed. But even with everyone paddling their hardest, they didn't make time and the kids worked so hard hard to get to the in the current was. Four not current in our face just. You know so much that you couldn't paddle against it, but you got right up against the shore you could get in the eighties and still make progress through, and so they were a little disgruntled when we got to the cat and realized I, worked my tail off. For A lie why? I thought my arms are going to fall off. It was so exhausting that was when I finally just completely you drained. That was the point where I started consciously pulling my paddle off setting it on the gunwales so I could fall asleep. The. Students lost their steam as the sun rose higher into the sky. They started getting passed by boats people. They'd stayed ahead of the whole race until now. They're paddle strokes became clunky and uncoordinated. Christmas lurched haltingly forward as the students took turns dozing in their seats. and. Then there's a ferry coming and we had told the kids like, Hey, if there's a fairly common. We're GONNA yell halls and you gotTa give it everything you've got otherwise we're going to get run over by a ferry and so. This varies come right before the finish. It's the Port Townsend Fair, and so we are halls and we sprinted all the end of the finish line the. Has got them and we almost didn't stop. Cheering started on the dock ashes full of people doc you can hear. Packed in there were just cheering yelling and just sprinting to the finish line and I'm just yelling as loud as I can for them to hold water, which is our commander. I cried a little I. Definitely. My sunglasses on Cryan. He's crying everyone's just you know the kids I don't they're crying I was I think every adult was you know and not from the exertion dislike that feeling of accomplishment like we did it we completed the sayings crazy idea we had came to fruition kids kicked by, and we have all the support waiting for us on the dock and parents. Are there my buddy that was taking all these pictures? You know he's there with a twenty four doughnuts waiting for us. You know it was all coming together and it was overwhelming. The PLATTE Canyon High School Yacht Club process the finish line at one forty one PM. On June first seventy miles in eighteen and a half hours. Some of the students fell over when they got out of the boat but they were psyched they did it they about? Seventy miles tonight and placed twenty third overall. The kids were celebrities they would see planning yacht club shirt and people would grab them and just want to talk to him, and so the kids they couldn't go anywhere without somebody grabbing them and ask them about the boat. We literally had people come up to us and be like Oh my gosh, you were on that boat like you're cool in the bathroom even went to the literally went to the bathroom and there are people only. Gosh. Were you on that boat and Yeah the. So. We're so jealous if you like we wish we could have done that and all this stuff and it was it was just a cool experience just being recognized for something you've done. In the time between the first recruitment meeting and the race, it would've been easy for all of them Mr Ottesen Mr Hanford. The students to stack up all the odds against them and laugh the idea off as ridiculous. Over the course of those seven months of building fundraising and training, they had so many opportunities to quit when the district said the liability was too great when the students drilled a hole through the canoe when the boat didn't fit in the trailer when their hands went on horse. Tooth. Reservoir. But instead, those moments fueled them. When no one outside that room believed they would succeed. They believed. Turns out believing in themselves went along way. Here's Sydney. At the beginning this seemed impossible you know and I was like physically I don't think the I can paddle for seventy. Mount St I realized you know if I set my mind to something and motivate myself than I really can do whatever I put my mind to. Here's amy. Maybe, there are things that I can do that I don't think I can. Were not just like something that we think that we can do is a whole lot more than that. and. Here's why I think it was just cool. To show people that these mountain kids can build a boat. And make it through this race place twenty-third. Kinda out. In landlocked state and. Not due to bad. And Ask for their teachers. was like the Mount Everest of teaching for me. It was like this is about as good as it gets I can't imagine a much better project. For us to do this one. Exposing the kids to something. So radically different than they were used to and setting the expectations so high and also having kids build the boat and do it like every bit of it was what I like and I value. I think for those kids they walked away. Feeling like they can do whatever whatever they wanted to and. I'm so proud. So, proud that we did that and to be a part of that. It was the skirt cancer effort time and money that we just poured into this it's hard to imagine. Being at that level again, even doing the race again and even winning, it won't feel as much compliment that first year. Well, I don't know everyone. Will. The twenty twenty seventy, forty, eight race was cancelled due to coronavirus but for twenty twenty, one, the plaque cannon yacht club has their eyes on the prize. This coming year, we would like to do pedal drive system because it'll give the boat a new flavor, teach the kids a new set of skills, and we actually place higher our goals to win this coming year and people laugh at us. But I say laugh away because if we can nights, we're GONNA win. You heard right a pedal boat four paddle wheels and room for sixteen students in the boat. A canoe rests on the floor of the Yacht Club workshop filled with bike frames an extra pedals it seems like there's a long way to go between this mangled pile of bikes and the pedal boat they have in mind. Mr Hanford starts laughing. He's laughing you gotta believe Steve Got to believe. We have to do is go twice as fast. Mystery Hanford Mr Ottesen Sydney in amy for sharing your story.

Twenty nineteen in the day was November. Nineteen forty four weapons-grade plutonium with created for the first time at the Hanford site a nuclear production complex complex in the state of Washington. The Manhattan project was as US government research and development projects to produce the first atomic weapons. One of the mission of the Manhattan project was the development of weapons-grade plutonium. Plutonium was first produced in isolated in December of nineteen forty by scientists at the University of California Berkeley. The team sent an article describing the discovery to a scientific journal for publication but the paper was withdrawn. When it was found the element could be used in atomic bombs. The discovery wasn't published until after World War Two ended Hanford Washington was chosen posing as an ideal location for a full-scale plutonium facility because it was relatively remote had hydro electric power from the Grand Coulee and Bonneville. Dan's aunt can't flat rocky. Terrain was good for supporting the production buildings. The Hanford Engineer Works code-named. Fight W was built by the Dupont Company beneath Resonance Hanford White Bluffs and Richland including native American peoples were evacuated from the area with short notice the the thousands of employees at the site new. They were doing war work but few were aware that they were working on nuclear weapons. Three nuclear reactors or piles. They built at Hanford. Their purpose was to produce plutonium from uranium. The bi-reactor was the first production scale nuclear reactor its design was based on physicist Enrico. FERMI experimental reactor at the Chicago met lab Chicago pile one and the X ten Graphite Reactor in Oak Ridge Tennessee that began producing plutonium in late. Nineteen forty three. B reactor went online in September of nineteen forty four and it produced its first plutonium on November. Six D theory actor went online. In December and F- reactor went online in February of nineteen forty five each of the three reactors needed at least one tonne of uranium to produce just two hundred and twenty five grams of plutonium. On radiated fuel elements were irradiated in reactors then irradiated fuel was cooled sent by rail to chemical separation plants known as Kenyans or Queen. Mary's after the separation and concentration process. Who Tony Nitrate pace was stored right and then shipped to Los Alamos New Mexico. Where a secret lab for the Manhattan project is located in February nineteen forty five the first shipment of plutonium and was sent to Los Alamos where the plutonium nitrate with converted to metallic plutonium plutonium from the reactor was used in the Trinity Test. The first detonation of a nuclear device which was conducted at the Alamogordo bombing and gunnery range plutonium from the reactor was also used in Fatman. The bomb dropped over over. Nagasaki by December of Nineteen forty-six employment at the site was down to around five thousand people. After World War Two was over and the Cold War ramped ramped up more reactors and plutonium processing complexes were added at Hanford. The site produced most of the plutonium used in. US nuclear weapons most most of the nuclear reactors at Hanford shutdown between nineteen sixty four and nineteen seventy-one but one reactor remained in use until nineteen eighty-seven this blast. Reactor and reactor was a power reactor for electricity and plutonium production reactor for nuclear weapons the US Department of Energy has controlled the Hanford emphasize since nineteen seventy seven in nineteen eighty nine the Department of Energy Environmental Protection Agency and at the Washington Department of Ecology entered it into an agreement for a clean up at Hanford which produced a lot of nuclear waste. There is still controversy surrounding leaks and contaminated. Waste at the site doc. I'm jeff coat and hopefully you know a little more about history today than you did yesterday.

Alison's NXIVM Obsession, The Sloppy Boys' Drinks Pod, Shrimp Pizza

"Hello you guys. It's me alison before the show starts. I wanted to give you a little bit of a disclaimer. Which is you may notice that the audio does not sound as good as it normally sounds In fact everyone sounds fine. They all sound good But it's me it's my track. That sounds a little different than normal. I totally messed up and did not capture the high quality audio that we usually use and instead we had to use the low quality audio so it may be a little bit distracted. Maybe you won't even notice but you might notice at the very beginning. But i think with things like this. It's a little bit distracting at the beginning. And then pretty quickly your brain just sort of stops noticing it and then everything sounds good and normal that is my hope at least anyway so apologies for the not up to our usual standards audio content though is unparalleled. Okay here we go. I love you and now live from isolation station in burbank california. It's the plague we. Thirty five thousand rosen. Is your new best friend. Show tonight house of guests. They're happy they're sloppy. But mostly they're very sloppy there. The sloppy boys jeff dutton. Mike hanford and tim cow pakis tone is here to kick back lacks of the glass of wine to listen to save piece. Classical music involves these four seasons total landscaping. I'm husband daniels. Saint hop on board love bus sailor. Us red alison rose same. Suit alison new. Hello my little danish but cookies. Welcome to another exciting episode. Of alison rosen. Is your new best. Spread that particular carbohydrate was centered on patriot patriotic. On by casey khan and she specifically said the pretzel shaped ones with sugar on top. So i'm thinking she's talking about that ten that we've all seen that has like the different kinds of cookies in a in those little like fluted a paper cup at another point to the paper cups that i liked them anyway. I want patriot on. Also fun stuff on there. You could see this video the scenes content. You can submit carbohydrates. there's weekly bonus episodes just this past week. I did extra soothing. One where i read children's books played some soothing songs that i don't own the right sue but it seems to be okay so far patron dot com slash house residents say. Hello like say to. My guess now is special show because i have an entire band. I don't know that i've ever had a whole musicians parts of so i haven't had a whole bayan not i don't know but they're not just a band they also hope podcast and you're familiar with one of them. Tim pakis who's been on like twice or twice this right now. Yeah each one counted like more than one hands. I feel like you've been on like five or six times anyway. Tim cow pakis as jeff dutton and hanford other sloppy. Boys hello welcome. Oh whoa. tim's been on twice. Oh my gosh. He does vet catching up to do. My that's right. So i also here and i'm just going to say hi to him right now because i tony. I don't know if you told them. I don't know if they know what they're stepping into but with their stepping into his shot where i have been forgetting over over over say hi to tony till about forty five minute mark and i haven't been turning it around just like this country seems to be turning it around. I'm turning it around tony. We're not even ten minutes in yet. And i've already acknowledged you. Hi but don't worry i've Thrilled i've kind of the only thing i talk about with these guys. How you always again. So we're sort of. We're like a shoulder to cry on. Yeah we use it just or the. You don't like it. No i couldn't i couldn't you tony. Do you bring it up therapist. I haven't in a while but it's probably do because you've been you've been doing a little bit better lately so yeah it's not coming up as often. I really have stinky. Made responded to it. Well no you like really oversell it now. It gets this whole like introduction. Every week. Now of i keep forgiving reduce him. That is because again. I imagine that you filled the guys. That is because i have a problem where i can't just bring something up. If there's a back story. I bring it up and then i say i'm not gonna go into the whole back story and then i go into the back story. That is just a fun. Quirky about me or example the fact that i brought up termites like show for like eight months until the audience demanded that i stop and then i run back from a mosquitoes but anyway i feel like with the new cold weather insect free for now so let's dive in to the. I have big personal news. Which is that. I have now become obsessed with the vow and obsessed with cives. Just obsessed with kiefer neary in general. I realized that like culture did this a little while ago. I'm late to this personal news but let's instead talk about the national news international and global news. Last time that i i did the show. It was monday before the election and we didn't know what was going to happen and we made all sorts of rob predictions but now we know except for some people who disagree but for the most part joe biden is president elect house. Everyone feeling how what were your reactions to those days where we didn't know i'm just hearing is now but i'm happy. I voted for him. It's very exciting very exciting. I was in new york when when the news dropped. And i was outside on the street and all of a sudden cowbells coming from people's windows and stuff and people were honking their horns and it was like what are they called it in everyone's jumping around hearings and well right when they called some guy pulled us in a big truck with jersey license plate plates out and he was like the country's screwed. It's a new world. People dance at gas stations. Now i don't know if you saw that yes i did ask was there. I was there too. I wasn't anywhere. I feel like everybody. Everybody had the same instagram. But was there different hours of the day. It was seven hours today. Pres i. I walked up to see it and it was great but the best was on my walk up there. A car was parked at a red light and in the driver's seat someone rolled down the window and put a trumpet out and started playing the national anthem. Live industry so friend of the tony. You're typing is. Why once again having. I don't know have you guys. Been enjoying the savage attorney typing. I like it. he's fast. He is in the old days. There would be like a While you are zooming you're using a typewriter yet to tight tony. Who tell you. The mavis beacon. Or mario or do you do the keys. No i do not. I'm used these three fingers. And it's like yeah but just with my pointer fingers. My middle finger my ryan. I do have the typing teaching thing. Which i go back to every once in a while and it never holds my interest or i don't do it so infrequently that i don't remember where all the keys ourselves to go back lessons to be like. Oh yeah ws up their wait. Let's type teaching big typing teaching teaching typing program. Like mario teaches typing teaching type. I meant to say is type teach. Yeah oh thank you. Yes words permit. Are you think you are me. Yeah with those low. It's like it's like if i'm using the home row the way i'm supposed to it's like thirty. It's low but if i'm using my three fingers it's like sixty but a lot of them are. Why don't you trust the two fingers on the one hand and just one on the other hand. You don't trust the middle on the other hand and scandalous finger. Are you right handed right but you only use one right finger like no no two right fingers and one left yes yes We will move on. But i i must now. Why did you decide that you needed to cheat at type type. Teach program because i saw other people typing so fast and i was like this. I must be embarrassing myself. Every time like hold on let me get this down. Let me get your professional writer and you say. Let me get this too. That's the other thing to being a writer. I was like. I don't wanna look like. I don't know how to type tim. Jeff and tony happy. Thought ill of mike's typing in the past. I looked across the room typing. And just i think makes a good writer and i'm perplexed that the product can be good but that the process can be so ugly weird. It ain't my handwriting's awful too so we would like be writing the birthday boy stuff and sometimes i go to the like dry erase ideas down and they'd be like illegible for people. I learned to to excuse me. I too many. T's i learned to type in school and i think in high school. We had a class where we learned some typing. But i had also learned a little bit in grade school. Mike who raised you raise was in a bar. And there were two pigs that serves looked after instead of a keyboard. He'd practiced on rocks. Who fork is impeccable. So what i've seen before friend of the show de bay it was. It was his car. He parked parked at a gas station and danced on the roof of the car and all sorts people. I knew were there tony. I thought you were there. But i made an error giving your violent reaction. I know i just. I mean i was seeing the videos all day. Well yeah 'cause other friend of the show kevin reporter. Was there most of the time as well. Yeah i just kept seeing. I think at the end of the day i reposted one because it made me happy because it was like every it was still that but then they had moved onto Christmas songs right right right mariah carey see that and weigh in on that. Oh really she saw. They were dancing to. She has the best christmas song of all time. Yeah officers yeah yeah she. She saw re tweeted and said that she loved him. That's great. why was it that quarter that was picked. It was the seventy six by where we used to live. Mike was it just like that's where he was. And he got out of his car. Gone his route or was that inserting seventy six is an important year for our nation. It's not a mom and pop gas station. There's other locations of seventy six two mikes point. Yeah i i think demi lives near there. Possibly i know he lives in those villas interesting. I was surprised they were allowed to do that all day. And that no one came by and was like you're having too much fun in public right. Well there's the one guy in the little chips stand. And i don't think he had the heart to send everybody home. We kind of had him hostage for most of the day. You know seeing off celebrations this shows. What tiny petty person i am. I mean that was. Of course i was so happy but i was like. How does everyone everyone who like all these people who are just decided the cool all these people new to gather around and have some kind of public celebration again. I don't know that. I would have gone because in general i am opposed to parties during kobe for really good news. Which i feel the says up but still i wear my invitation. Did you guys get you know how i found it was either. I don't use snapchat. But i have it and i found out how to go to the map and you can see on the map like where the hot spots are for video so i just saw like. Oh there's a big red spot up on up on the seventy six and then there's a bigger red spot down on like sunset junction and you can just kind of see where the action is. Wow just in that where people are. Snap shutting stuff. Yeah man okay. He really finger on the pulse of guest. I would imagine most parties. Sorry tony. I talked right over. I'm so sorry i write. It wasn't worth it. No i'll see myself out. i would. I was gonna say. Is i imagine most people saw instagram. That's all i. I think i could be wrong but my guess is the person that texted me about. It was a comedian. And then i saw little can mean peop- comedy people there. My guess is that paul scheer and june rafael had been doing some in general that corner had sort of become where the black lives matter protests. Were and a few other gatherings over. The course of the summer for socially distanced events. So i wouldn't be surprised if paul scheer started. I forgot i saw a picture of you and your wife. Tim and that i forget if it was elizabeth large posted it. Maybe but that you were one of the key people that made me go. All the cool people are there. Oh no one. Lima i was. I got called out. I was standing there watching the action. And i had my hand my arm around my wife's waste tompkins called me out and and was like look at tim's sin because i was standing up like traffic to my back and he said tim thought the traffic would hide his legitimately embarrassed that i was. I don't know maybe. I got to amorous because of the election news. I feel like i didn't see now. Granted from inside my house. But i still do have ears. Didn't see anything in burbank. Which is where i am. Although on saturday morning. I woke up early and i looked at twitter which is what what i normally do. It wasn't because i was going to check the news but for to initially. I saw the announcement do they. It had been called and the tweets were saying they had been called a minute or the tweets from a minute before. So something i mean. Maybe it's just the vibes. But i suspect something i heard always somewhere like maybe some are hawk or something woke me up so that but then i didn't hear anything else all day i had sorry. Go ahead oh no you. All right. i'll i'll i'll i was gonna say was i had a kind of sort of similar experience to where i woke up and i looked at twitter and the things that i saw that were calling it. We're not quite from. They were maybe five ten minutes ago or something but it was. It was crazy because it felt fake in the moment. Yeah i looked at twitter. I read the headline. And i'm not exaggerating at all. When i say this when i got to the end of the sentence my whole neighborhood started cheering just waiting. That's what i want to know. My neighbourhood was also silent and had bummed me out. And then i saw all these videos a new york people going crazy and i stuck my head out the window and not a peep we posted up on. I think we were somewhere uptown. And it was like all day this. This one intersection was going crazy. And like when cars weren't going by people in the street doing cartwheels popping champagne. I will say that we drove down to orange county Yesterday my parents are down there. And we passed a flag high above five paul flapping and i felt this swell and my chest which i haven't felt and so long possibly not ever in that way. Maybe a little bit after nine eleven. The flag stirred something inside me but It's just weird. How quick Again i have to say. I know i'm i'm potentially alienating people who do not shurmur critical views and yet you tune in to hear me talk so this what i'm saying right now. We wanna hear about termites. It don't worry. The insect content you've tuned in for is has not gone away. It's just weird. How a symbol. And i like to get into semi at just getting i was going to say something about Semiotics but i'm not it's weird. How the flag which has met something for the past. Four years can so quickly change. Yeah yes seeing. People wave the flood the american flag on ironically out of like joy and celebration when for so long. We're like oh mostly we see the black. The blue lives matter variant or some other pairing of like a trump flag with it right. It's refreshing to be like. Oh yeah we should take that back. We should always be taking that and just take take the tug of war and run with it right. That's ours. I what for the first couple of days though. Even though people had predicted they itself is going to be a red mirage. That we're not going to know that you know the results for a few days. I still feel pretty dismayed for the first couple of days. Oh yeah uh-huh yeah. That wednesday morning was like oh man. That's this could be very different because like common sense. You'd think like great so they have all the mail in votes in the early votes. They're going to count those before we start because they've had them for weeks and then you that's when i learned was the beginning of tuning in that all those ballots hadn't been counted yet and they couldn't count them in a lot of areas until after the polls have been closed right all right. Let's move on now. Something lighter the sex cult that i am obsessed with have you got are you guys are watching this. Have you already watched it again. I acknowledge this is a lot of people's rear view. But i i watched. Every second of the vow. I have not heard the podcasts or seen the new star series but i was very vocal on twitter that i hated the h. How did you did you start out liking it. Because i started out like the first four. I thought were great. And then actually downhill fast. Will i i started watching thinking. I'm from upstate. New york and all that went down in albany and stuff. And i head and i only just knew the word nexium was a sex cult and i didn't know much about it so he's very excited loved the first three and then i just i've never got so mad at a show. I don't know why it got under my skin. Maybe it's because it got me so good in the first couple now where you tweeting or was this linda underwear. That was linda underwear. But i sort of work is her liaisons. You do admit that you work with her then yes. I'm a friend of husband actually ever supposed to picture a different picture. Not only will she differences. She can't find the original picture. She went looking on google images to see if she can find that picture again. And can't remember what you google. So i was gonna say tim. I've never seen you and linda underwear in the same room before sort of like clark kent superman thing you know. Maybe maybe this could be a movie so just to catch everyone up because last time you're on we talk quite a bit about linda underwear and her journey. She broke up with her husband and realized he liked women. She briefly with him right. Yeah i don't know that she does like women because they don't. They went to well with new girlfriend. She just tweeted a lot about. But i think once she got back together with her husband. Everyone knew that that's the relationship that really matters most to her. They were back together on saturday. Because i think they were going to a few extra pumps because of the times you can get just one or two extra pumps he was talking about. Malaysia is getting some money getting some. That's very good point. Malania husband leaving office. He's usually very busy but now he's going to have more free time right possible. Melania will be getting more pumps times pumps okay. Do you think she wants that. She's going to say. I don't know i mean i have. I would want as few pumps as possible from donald. Sloan got very political when it comes to pumps. I have strong opinions so tim jess bike. Yes you guys are ban the sloppy boys. Are you all the birthday boys as well oil. So how did you all meet. And which which which franchise. If that's the right word started i. I know it's not the podcast about drinks. I definitely want us to start referring to all of them as franchisees. We're like roy. Crock crumbling franchises. We all met in college and then birthday boy started first birthday. Boys is a sketch comedy. Grip and mike mitchell from the double as is also the birthday boys has a how many people are in birthday boy. It's third too many. We any pepe tone a at a standup show made fun of us. For like twenty minutes one time and he referred to assist thirty five cowards but there are six of us. And we're the musical guys we started. We we started off. Our first show was playing a party where we were kinda celebrating. A birthday boy's thing and then we were like. Hey maybe we'll keep playing music. We're a bad bandies. Basically something about our band. The songs don't good and we we all lived in a house together and even before we had that show. I remember one time. We had a u haul. Did we get the drums. Set that early the day. We all bought beds. We moved to elliott business. I think we got a drum set before any beds day. Yeah so we. We moved here with no furniture and slept on our bath towels on on the carpet. Got you haul to all by beds and then before we turned in the u. Haul we were like. Hey we have time to look at craigslist and get some new stuff. And we've got a shitty drum set that we put nick next to tim's bed downstairs and so we would like jam after work and stuff. That was the. Yeah the humble beginnings. Where did you guys go to college. I'll so you're from the cold wilds of upstate. New york all of us. And i know mike you're in philadelphia right now but you live in new york rut aunt. Where are you from originally rochester. And what about you jeff. A londonderry new hampshire okay. Beautiful beautiful voice uniform. Wait why is about. This is going to be a dumb thing. Why is new hampshire so much in my mind right now. The swing state primaries now sailor. Ninja turtles now alouine. Now i haven't seen that. Do i need to see it as a good. I laughed but actually sent in massachusetts salem. Now there's something nefarious in new Oh i know. Because i just read a book about saint paul school. What's that saint. Paul school is a super elite. Private school it's it might be like one of the oldest ordering its high school boarding high schools in the country. It's in on my god. I just read a whole four hundred page book about it. I can't believe i'm forgetting the name of the city But this so it's like super exclusive super elite like a very everyone. There goes on to ivy league schools and this woman lacy crawford wrote a book called notes on a silencing about being sexually assaulted while she was there a she's like forty forty six now And happened when she was fifteen and the school covered it up and that took her years to write about it but she has been like fifty one. Other students have reached out to her basically yet. It sounds like my high school and high school. I'm not. I'm not joking. Bishop girton high school in nashua. We were a brothers of the sacred heart school and during my four years there. The police came and arrested one of the brothers who was like one of the administrative guys. He wasn't even really a teacher and let him out in handcuffs and then words started to get out like that the school kinda got in front of it. They were like brother. i forget. His name is brother x. I don't want to accidentally say the wrong. One brother ex had a really a consensual relationship with the student a long time ago at a different school and everybody was just like. Okay yeah like we side with brother. What's his name. And then i saw the movie spotlight upon moving to l. a. And i was like this is exactly my school and the spotlight section was in the boston globe which we got so there was a thing where the brothers would shuffle. Each other around when there was an allegation or something went wrong. They would just move them and not address it. Yeah in this book you find out that one of the teachers and it was actually students. Who had assaulted her. But then there was this huge investigation and some of the teachers and they all like they were like raptors and forget all the religious names of a religious school back on. that's when they would just like move them to write glowing recommendations and move to a different school instead of doing anything disciplinary. Oh my god. What is the city tony. Can you up saint paul's school. Yeah manchester is my guess. Feels right. But i don't think it was conquered conquered conquered the capital. There you go. it's interesting. I've known some people who went there and they all talk about it like it was like magical place in a forest like the and they went onto good colleges and they didn't love the colleges but they did love their high school which is hard for me. I just went to a public high school. But it's hard for me to imagine. Loving is quote but this place was so such a special place to them and then to read this book. It's so much dark stuff happens bear but the book is really about how and it sounds like happened at your high school as well how institutions that are supposed to protect individuals will sacrifice the individual order to protect themselves. But it's weird. How much does that really protect if they just came out if they cut down on it right away and they said we found out. We have this bad teacher and we're going to help him get prosecuted and sent to jail then we would all love that school you know. I think that's true if it was like the first time. But i think a lot of these places it's like this has been happening for a hundred years. My my catholic high school was also on that list of spotlight schools. After i saw the movie i saw that and was like whoops but it was weird. My my school at like a lot of these schools are prestigious. Meyer was sort of. It was a catholic. Private school were going out of business like this. It was like falling apart and there were less and less students. And and so i think that they just but they had link over the years fired and hit a lot of brothers they did. They took part in that as well. My any skeletons in your closet. No nothing exciting mcquaid boy school. we didn't apparently. I guess we didn't have any. I forget you into an all boys school I don't think anybody had anything like that. That i do. What did you think of going to school. It was okay. I think it took a lot of pressure off in certain ways but then made it sort of like dealing with the opposite sex in in like just becoming friends with females and stuff was like a little took second step you like we. We were friends with girls from our sister school but it was like. I'm going to get to see him all the time. So it's kind of like we have to only see them on the weekends or school or something like that. Like was it hard for you to be calm and normal around them. No okay so you guys back. at and formed the birth did did all the birthday boys. All thirty of you move out to california together clipped we. We all interned in la. There's a strong internship program from ithaca l. a. And we were all out here for the same like whatever four months the year prior and we all said if we all graduate. Let's move together and doing that. Internship program junior year we lived at the oakwood apartments. Holly famously were all the child. Actors live during pilot season. Frankie muniz was their king and we. That was all the kids. All these ten year olds walking around with cell phones and yelling at their agents. Did you wear regimes. james died. That is exactly what. I was gonna say like a couple of months after we left and in love didn't paul rest character Either they filmed it there or libya they call it something else but he did shoot some stuff there. But i've been i've been on it. I just wanna get that out. Yes we've shot. I love that loser. I was weighed. But i had longer hair. I was one of the buddies. And i was walton shorter hair but that is auto biographical paul in real life. After a break-up a he after a quick move out from an apartment he shared with an ex girlfriend he very briefly lived at the oakwood apartments. And that's what inspired that. What internships did you guys do. Kilborn and microsoft the craig with tim and also. I'm not familiar with this record label. I also did a brothers. Some small production company called thunder road. Which i don't even know if it's around anymore because springsteen's they did welcome to move port before Yeah i did James cameron's company actually and this was pre avatar. And everybody was really secretive about about project. Eight eighty and at one point got at one point. I gathered the courage to ask the person that i was reporting to. Hey what's what's project eight eighty and there were like shh project. Eighty is avatar and then two years later avatar came out. It's about bugs smurfs. But i did see. I did see peter jackson the day after he won the oscar for return of the king in the elevator. Oh cool was he gonna learn a tux. I just said congratulations. You didn't have any shoes on really know. So mikey tim. You guys intern on the craig. Kilborn the show that finland yes cbs. So i was a magazine journalists for years. I don't know what years you guys were there.

I was writing about bands twice that were playing on the show and i accompanied them to right and that was part of the story. But i think it was probably before you guys were.

Jc shes a instant guy chevette. What's his name shows area. I think he was. He wanted to his thing and he shot it before the show for some reason i think he had something to do and he was wearing these big like pirate boots that he refused to lace up all the way and they kept one kept opening up opening up like falling off.

You know what i could would you could you. Could you could. How sort of but not well like. I can't do it. well you do that. Now that to tony. Come on yeah. I'm too bad. But i do it all slap anything. Whatever instrument you want. I'll slap a drum guitar piano food. Satele me about deciding to do a podcast about drinks now. I've heard here for the beer. So i assumed you guys just like beer but turns out you like all cocktails. Get on the same page song that we would want song says. We don't drink anything because we only smoke weed and we have another song saying that we like every cocktail this. I think it came out with all these drinking songs but then Coming out with an album this summer. We didn't get the tour and we were sad about not touring so we did this thing where we were having friday night. Zoom rooms with slobby boys fans that we could meet Fans and talking sort of kind of quickly became the every friday. We were drinking something specific or we had seen nights and then and then when When we were done doing those nights we said. I think this is a podcast. Yeah and we found this official list too because we could just arbitrarily come up with things we wanna drink. But we found that there are something. There's less than one hundred cocktails. On the official international bartenders association lists i used for like world competition or like will go down that list. And you guys are saying i'd be a not ip. Be a show. And i this is what you're referring. We need to annunciation. It didn't sound. Like i i will. I was just making it clear. Because i need to. Enunciate are enunciating. I knew it was. Ibm you know. I was for the first couple episodes. I was talking into the wrong end of this microphone. I think the first four episodes was talking right down the top of it the three of us are co host but for many episodes it sounded like me jeffer- the hosts and mike was are weird. Guest who is really far calling in on the phone. What what kind of. Mike is that. This is a pile. Py e. out. Only the best. I got this right when a month into quarantine. And i've been talking into the wrong way for like six months on podcast and shows and stuff so i apologize to other podcasts. On microsoft's needs it. Maybe they do but microphones need to make it clear where you're supposed to talk into because i always thought you just talk. No but i don't know. I thought you just talk into top of it. But there's plenty of microphones where i guess. I think it's called the capsule as like on the front of it. You started to talk at it. That's exactly the pile. Yeah and you know what they should put a little. You know a basketball backboard has the little orange square on it. Go ahead and put that on the microphone. Let me know about supposed to hit over so the sound bounces off target for people who like to. He's goes. I can't voice yes. She's remember It's a it's a fair or carnival game. I think i've only played it a circus circus where you shoot water like into a clown's mouth and in those up a balloon. It's not that fun not that fun. One that's the one that's a little more fun as the one where you squeeze the water and it goes into a hole in your horse moves on the top. But i had in the one where you roll the ball and like if it goes into the three it go. Yeah yeah balanced people. I'm actually haven't done it in a long time. But i used to be weirdly good at that game where there's like a little ramp and the bowling ball has to go over the first half but over the second yes. Can i do with that talent. Swin more cartman toys at the fair. How many cartman stuff turbans you have. I do have more than one of is a snoopy dresses boy george or snoopy now with a long time ago and i will answer. This was a circus circus as well. Circus circus must vegas. We used to vacation -cation in las vegas and this was back before there was like anything for kids to do so by parents would hire these. Just what what can one say about a babysitter that works for the hotel. They work here durr's and then occasionally like every trip we'll go to vegas At the end usually my parents would take us to circus circus on like we live for that we live for going to the mall and go into the pool and then we just hope the babysitters were kind of fun and bay off. They usually worked while do do you like do you go to vegas now or do you like it. I really don't that much. I was excited. When i turn twenty one so i could gamble and i did. I gave it a few times. And then the last time i went. I didn't even gam like the last few times. I didn't even have a desire to gamble again at all And i figured why make myself if if appeal to quite make myself distance dame where. I'm for sure gonna lose money. So yeah i went when i was scott exact opposite by the way i think i'm gonna win a bunch and i lose every time i go to roulette table and get up and go down. It's weird because when i was into it i was. I was playing craps. Because you know you get the best odds in lose money so fast at craps or you win so fast which i had not experienced. I don't think media is so intimidating to walk up to that that table and be like. Hey i want to try. This look yasser flatter. No it really is. And i remember. I made an error. And i felt so stupid and it was like i had just confused. The come line with the past. Didn't even know these things mean anymore. But i think trying to convince them like i know what i'm doing and then i like so didn't yeah yet. No i don't i don't really love it. You guys las vegas. I enjoy doing mike. Mike is mike sets up shop at a roulette table and plays all night and walks out the next morning with no money. Then vegas i. I don't i don't really like to gamble or i'm not good at it so took me a while to figure out what to do there now. I do feel like. I like to go like off the strip and then like find an old bar or something like that or like go to the restaurants are really good but i am. I gambling i. I could get in the spirit of it. Everyone's having so much fun. But i just lose two hundred dollars right away and then i frown. Yeah it's never worked out for me. And i used to like to like it when i was twenty one or twenty five or whatever but i will say tim. I mentioned this the other day. I'm starting to get a little hankering for vegas. Because i've been such a shut in right when everything is fun to walk around on the street like on the sidewalk with a drink too. That's kind of walking right out of a place holding a drink exciting to me now. Like a normal drink. Iraq's class or some kind of tall tall drinks on your podcast. I'm talking to a tall embarrassing drink. The big the plastic yard. Yes yeah something like that anything to let me carry on. Carry two drinks. Tony how do you feel about. I guess I'm i liked kinda similar to jeff. I liked it a lot. The first few times. I went and found myself liking it less and less over the years. I don't mind going here and there But yeah i don't like seek it out or anything but it does kinda those same thing though it is. It does sound a little appealing right now. Just because it's not not really. Because i don't wanna be in a casino right now. We'll go man. You can go this weekend. I wish i loved it like my parents did. Because it's easy to get to and it's pretty cheap. Be great to have your favorite vacation. Place i mean. I don't know that it was their favorite. But i think they thought it was like manageable Closed and it was cheap. Yeah and you could get a hotel. Room is like sixty dollars. They just wanna get you into the town trick you there. How we've talked about before. How i like doing a creepy stuff and creeping cruising around where people have died. I had one of those in vegas. I was having fun with friends when i was like. Hey let's go to puck got shot. I made everybody walk over and we went down back alley and it was. This is where to pot guts and it was a bachelor every. It's like when you go out of the strip and like checkout stuff. I ran a marathon once in las vegas. And you run you start and you run through the vegas strip and it's awesome and the bright lights and stuff and people are like cheering for you and then you get outside the strip and you're just like the vegas suburbs and it's like it was dark and quiet and like bone lot of cactuses cinderblock fences around their house. It was very weird. Yeah i'll never think of vegas as having anything besides like the bright lights and the cash. Yes we i. I was just gonna say i dated a girl whose family lived in vegas so weirdly spent a lot of time in vegas. But not in. Vegas like yeah. Actually vegas didn't feel like vegas at all and Yeah it has its little spots that can be okay and like that know. It's a little more laid back and fun but yeah rose weird spending that much time there in just like oh. This could be kind of could be anywhere but at the same time. Everything's just brown. And vegas has no exports. It's like really it's people come in there and drop their money but it's just on gambling. So they they don't have any like Manufacturing wreck sports or anything that show up and good your hinds jeff memories. They might know your marathon runner. Yes i've done. A two marathons in three half marathons to have mervyn's chaffetz. He personality change when he's training for the marathon. He gets stubborn and it's really aggressive. Though he does you would just never noticed hanford like going to run a marathon and then he starts running a lot and then runs a marathon and then he stops running between marathons he just do it at the drop of a hat. It's admiral mike. I did thirteen miles twice during the quarantine. Just going out and doing it. Wow nothing else happened. You have like a marathon buddy or is this just you just so loud just solo and actually the last time i did that i a friend of mine in. La was like to run a marathon. And as i was heading out the door he was like hey. I just ran a half. He showed me like he screengrabs little map on his phone. I was like cool. I was just going to run. Maybe i'll do a half marathon. Just like sent him did to one of those people where i can't even run like i just can't yeah. I i remember running to this glass job song many years ago. That was five minutes long. And i'm like. I just have to run for the duration of this saw. I find it really uncomfortable. And i've heard from other people who are like that. And i feel like it's usually a lady thing i don't know many due to our like i physically cannot my body's not l. does not allow me to run. Oh i hate yeah okay. Yeah have like there have been times like i'm to do three miles and i just hate every minute of it and when i get back i'm like that's like the cap for me. Comfortably is is like three miles three minutes three steps. I got a weird hybrid of all of these. Where i have i run. I run two miles every day of my adult life. Basically i don't skip a day. Always run two miles. And i cannot run three miles. That is just exactly what my body will allow me to do one more step. I'm like dead. Does it hurt or is it like you're winded winded. I'm just to just to wimpy gonna pound out of my chest but can you do two miles and have a conversation at the same time. Like magazine articles. Say you're supposed to know i. That's tricky for me. I in fact. I one time i was out doing my sad little two mile jog and hanford was midway through one of his like eight mile dogs and he came up. Remember this on lewisville's boulevard. Mike data behind me and then we like keeping pace together for a little bit and we're talking and then mike took off and ran for the rest of the day and even just chitchatting for maybe forty seconds kills me and my lungs hurt. I can't were you think you were wearing a full sweatsuit to like a full gray sweatsuit funny to see like you look like iraqi guy. John i had. I had made a rule to myself like in my early twenties when i started running i was like i'm not gonna put any money into this because i think to not stick with it and then i ran every day for ten years and i was like okay. Maybe i'll buy some stuff. And what i what i bought was just like yeah. Running gear from the nineteen thirties only marathon. Sorry go ahead see you every single day. Yeah tory and stuff to nope. Not on tour and tour. I get really drunk and hungover. Don't do anything every other day. Yes no i feel like i should that would be. The real mark of commitment is go down to that that hotel a gym and run on the treadmill. Even when you're on vacation or something Maybe i'll get into that someday day. You got married. I swim laps the day i got married. I was staying at hotel. And i said maybe i'll do this. Look at you mike. I talked over you. i was about to say. Oh you're talking about what you run a when i did the la marathon z's group of three guys who dressed as elvis. Like the vegas. Elvis look and they had this Like baby stroller filled with water. Byles that they were handing out to people and they weren't even involved in the race like they didn't have the bibs of the numbers and they were just running with us and going back and forth and they would pass me one way and then pass me the other way and we're just like running circles around and not even involved in the race at all other than to cheer people on and help it was so like the rest of us are all dying in my. I felt like my legs were gonna fall off. Newly hey he wants water. We got water day are you. I hate them. Yeah or i'm inspired by them. I don't know. I don't know now i wanna tell you guys about hugh. Aeko kiko is Something that my son is in love with. And i am in love with it as well. They send you a hands on science in our projects. They have them for kids of all ages so they have like different crate lines. Depending on what age your kids are. It's everything needed to spark curiosity and kindle creative thinking which makes kiko the perfect gift i love it because i like to let a few of them pile up and then i stash them away and then when i need a fun project to distract my son i bring one out however recently he found all of them and he loves them so much that he demanded to open them. So now. we're going to need some new boxers. I can't the new ones arrive. With kiko kids can engineer. A walking robot design paint pendulum conduct bubbling chemistry experiments and more all from the comfort of home I think one of elliott's favorites when he was a little bit younger was there's like this fabric that makes them a pouch in the new open.

Promo code allison again that he co dot com promo code. Allison so wanna do just mere everyone in a moment. But i was curious mike. You said you used to live out here. The running with tam. But you moved to new york recently. Yes last night. What made you move my girlfriend's from new york and she's been wanting to go back for a couple of years we figured out. Let's give it a whirl. Harry and like new york new york a lot happier there maybe not happier lease less happy but also the being here for seven months of the pandemic has been weird weird to move place a couple months and shutdown not your classic big apple experience. No no. it's a little different. Plus it hit the city so hard. I mean people were i think the numbers like just went up yesterday. So we're probably going to be doing the same thing my friend scott. Sorry my friend. Just got back from new york and he was saying that they do a better than we do it here in. La like the restaurants and bars are much more figured out as far as you get the menu on your phone. So you don't have to handle all the menus and there's a lot of beer gardens right right right. It's a lot of other restaurants. Have their tables out in the like bustling of the street and maybe like new york. New york is more designed for walking anyway. So you gotta go with the punches better. I don't know yes. New yorkers role that are are you going as everyone go into restaurants. I have not been to win yet. I've i've never. I haven't been interested in like i haven't eaten indoors but i've eaten outside and had yeah. It feels. it depends on the restaurant. Like i won't go to a place. All the tables are filled and even if they put like some up between people. I kinda like what need to be away from people. Yeah and i have been on the subway and like the subway is pretty. Everyone's masked is it are. There are a lot of people on segue No it's definitely gone down. You can get some space but a train pulls up and it's packed. I will get on. Yeah that sounds kind of heroin and jeffey went to a restaurant in la. I've done a lot of grab and go type stuff. I try not to dine in. I don't think. I think i done in one place but yeah it's not great. It's not. It's not fun to walk around and i think people have kind of gotten on with their lives. They just do it with masks now but it is hard to just kind of like i'm just gonna tune out. This thing i know is happening right definitely gone back to my old practice of like. I got comfortable enough. Where after i finished the meal. I call for the chef. And i give a big kiss on the face the whole staff but yeah. I've gotten back to that. It's so interesting culturally in japan. I think that's considered rude. So you'd be weird out there and you all right. So let's do some are everyone's where people right in with things they think are due and they wonder is it just me or is it. Everyone who will submit them on twitter. And i think you guys might have some as well. Is that right yes excellent. Let's hear the song. Is everyone all right. Well let's start with our guest just mere. Everyone's who wants to go first okay. We're we're doing something that we we think we do. We think we want other people do it. Yeah yeah somebody you do. Or i always say i make it complicated. Say something you think or do because it can just be like. I always have this particular thought you know but basically it's something you do and you wonder if you're okay. I am assuming this. Isn't everyone. But i'm curious if anyone does this so anytime. I'm eating a full meal of like a protein starch and vegetable. I will most often say. It's a steak a baked potato and like steamed vegetable. I will eat the vegetables. I to get them out of out of the way. Tally yup. yeah you do. Yeah just because it's like vegetables the steak and potatoes of the fun part. Exactly like let's get like the pre the pre-game get that out of the way to the real deal on that note. My whenever i eat lucky charms the cereal i will eat all the oats. I so that. I have a mouthful full of marshmallows for the last couple. I can relate to that. I think used to do i remember eating the grape smarties. 'cause there i feel that the grossest of with already cut of gross candy but then at a certain point i realized like oh if i'm not if i don't really care for a sued just don't eat it so then i was like i mean that was probably around the time of realize of to diet as well and all that stuff. So it's like. I'm only going to eat the thing i want. But i can't relate to like wanting to get wanted to leave the part you like this right. It's it is an amazing feeling to realize when you're an adult that you can like. I don't have to have a big plate of brussels sprouts if i don't watch my picturing that you order or make reasonable plate of food and you're going to trudge through rockley. I understand the vitamins and minerals are very important lifestyle. I will can. I call jeff out on something here is speaking of contrived. Alt- we when we were all living together. Jeff went out and got a big bag of like cocktail shrimp and took all the the tails off and put them in a bowl and mix it with a cocktail sauce. An eight it like yeah. That's baller move. What's wrong with that tales. No no no no regular shrimp. I can understand that. What's wrong with that. It's like eating meat balls or something. These were the tiny little shrimp tiny house. These are false shrimp colosseum boo. Because if they were the bay shrimp which ago little tiny ones than i could see like. I'm just gonna use a spoon. That's a good move or legacy no because the language gino's or like the tiny tiny little dudes. Yeah and i know that. When i was little i liked based because i thought they were cute. Little now. They kind of they give me the keys. Other word i as. I like shrimp cocktail but as a flavor. I'm not when i think about. I'm not super industry. I realized there's a lot of inconsistency of what i just. I just thought i'd like shrimp like but like they're like. I think there's a cream of shrimp soup and there's shrimp flavored crackers and things like that. Which i chance. Get behind yeah. I don't like that that's very popular in japan. Right prawn prawn snacks. Prin is the way that we have salt vinegar or something. Oh yeah. I don't like. I feel like shrimp is a waste of sushi. Like if i'm doing sushi. Get shrimp outta here. Yes and then. I don't want that piece. It's like what a what a dud. Right but i will say. I've had shrimp on pizza. And that's worked really well for me. Oh no getting a big no from alison and thank you. Thank you for explaining what i was doing to people who are just listening. I was so thrown by that. But i forgot that i'm hosting a show and i really leaned into my shaking my head i should okay a segment with a segment. I also do a segment where it's called please or police gymnast on this multiple times. I i invented this kind of thing. And then you know tired or wired came out hot or not etc but i invented this and we're looking for hot takes so i don't want to hear anything. Diplomatic adam want week warm. I want a strong reaction and we have sought. That's butch okay so the question is shrimp on pizza. And i give that an i was forget. Which is i give that. Oh palese that sounds so not good to me. No thank you. Is it as of cheese because of dairy and seafood together gotta be keeps people out. Yeah it's just the idea of that Seafood flavor and texture on pizza. I mean the thing is like actually i think about cocktail sauce is tomato base. So maybe it doesn't have to be so gross but feel it just feels gross to me like. I don't want to mix seafood with pizza and asked. I don't want hot shrimp. I'm a big old. Yes please. Mike had janis remember. We used to work at a place and there was a janis pizzeria and they had like a shrimp pizza and it was good. I don't remember it. I i am a yes please because i want to try it but i don't remember that yes please. I'd like to try it. Yes please try it. Yes please i think i would like it. I'm a passionate yes please. There's a place i go to in saratoga springs new york. Were they give you a bunch of lemon wedges to squeeze on your shrimp pizza and delicious and then broadening out to in general in new haven connecticut. They get all the clam pizza that i know. That sounds extra rows but it is. Maybe i think possibly the best pizza in america white clam pizza if it is it. Like a fried clan. No it's like a chewy girls. China grow like this. Can i do one more seafood. And she's thing but we can. We need to hear. Tony's tony go ahead tornado. I think i gotta go no. Oh police on that. I've never i've never had it. I'd be willing to try it and give it a chance but my gut tells me oh palese because your gun is where the reaction happens is important consistency of the to like. Don't work right for me. I'm with you on that one tries to how many yes pope. Yes fleas is. we have. I've never even heard of shrimp pizza. And i think of myself as a cosmopolitan gal and the highest society. I'm i don't get to go pass those velvet ropes. Jeff you had another thing. Okay i'll do. This was going to be my. Is this just me. But this does not count as it i will. I will do some cook up some pasta like some few silly and i'll do some vodka sauce or fado sauce and i'll clap a little tuna fish in there and that weird people out just to give a protein i mean. That's there's like you can get like tuna helper now. Look at mike. Space he slash. Alison rosen where you can see my face you go you find this revolt walk i. I'm curious both about the flavor and also about the fact that you clap some to name their flavor the flavor outstanding the clapping couldn't be more fun gesture is this like. Are you like mocking spoon. Hops in or how do you do it. You give you turn the open. The tuna can hold precisely upside down and you give it the hardest slap bang with chat. Yeah we're bass guitar tony back yet. No thank you. i mean an openly. I this is the problem with the segment that gets an police from me. I'm an police on. That is what oh guys. i'm gonna make my special tuna noodle thing and you're gonna love. Gimme all your addresses. I'll ship it to you. Travels well tony police. Yeah no no. I don't like not a big tuna guy. You're gonna leave me like canned tuna like no. I can't i can't deal with that. I'll like spicy tuna with some sushi or something but Yeah beyond that. Not so much into the tuna. You're hanging out to dry all right. Another seafood thing. Another essence of seafood thing. My husband sometimes drinks. Is it like a mitchell. Linda mitch alina which a lot in a can. And i had a sip event it's beer and motto and He was like singing the praises of how how delicious it really hits the spot. It's refreshing which. I don't think of like clam juice tomato beer refreshing but it smells good so i took a sip and i was shocked. At how strong and prominent the clam is in there. I thought it was gonna be like a caesar salad. You know. there's sardine in there but it's not usually it's like you. You don't really know thursday going to be in the background but this is like really this is. This is very clam forward with bolt clamps. I i like those. And i drink and i did notice that yeah the budweiser version of it is specifically like kalim auto brand clam juice and i looked up to see where that star started and i saw that mitchell is a is a mexican drink goes way back and people were putting tamarind and hot sauce in their beers but the specifically the clam putting coal kalamata in your beer was started by the brand amato lego foods. What else can we put our weird claims houston and they started it and it did take off so some adman came up with that gross. It's avenue making him. Drink clam juice all right. Who else has another just mere everyone. Everyone and and maybe everyone. Maybe it's just me but everyone has their own different version of it because mine is very specific but does anyone have a person whose face they cannot recognize no matter what because for me actress sienna miller. I have tried and i have memorized her face. And i know that. That's that actress that i don't recognize ever and i'll just guess if i don't recognize her but does anyone have a person that no matter what they can't recognize them. I there's a couple of actresses rose byrne is one and two others just can't remember their names all look the same to me and every time i now that they look the same but i never get their names correct and i just can't think of the other three to acts. I feel like there was with tom. Hardy but that's also because i'm like so many of his roles cover his face and so when i see him at never likes that it's him. You have to hear the bane voice. Yeah i don't have that what. I thought you were gonna say people who you know but you can't picture they're facing your mind just like that door som- i have that appear periodically and usually have Hasn't happened in a long time. It used to be if i had a crush on someone that i couldn't conjure their face in my mind and i feel like it was if i had a strong emotion about them and i put them on a they're like god and they're attracted fathom it. I think so because it would fade. I would be able to think about trying to think. I don't have actors or actresses like that but i do have words that i have had to look up over and over and over and over and like the definition will not stay in my head. What is that. I have that too with a word and it's just like my brain just says no to this word. It's what is your word minds insouciance you remember. My my whole thing is that i can't get in there but so insouciance is a word you know but you just don't know the definition i think at this point i do and i think it means without worry but i think that's because i've mentioned on the show and someone wrote in and was like in friendship means this but i still don't but it's only like i've memorized that it doesn't resonate like doesn't resonate with me and then my yeah. And then my. Mary katharine ham. Front of show sent me a picture of this woman like just casually smoking in a cafe in france. And she's like this is like a frenchwoman like this is what iowa think of when i think of. It's the word insouciant. I don't even know if i'm saying it right Insouciance into now had that image. So now i just think of it as someone who like is like sort of reduction lee without concern. But i don't know if that's what it means. I had that with for the longest time. I had no idea what the ozarks were. And that word. i mean. that's such a strange word. He could be anything like it could have been a garment. It could be anything and then it wasn't until then i found out it was a place but i kept forgetting mountains and then it wasn't until a season of true detective that the whole thing took place in the ozarks and then i had a visual for it and now i know now i know it very well. I know all the actors. I know all the words. So you guys are all weird to me ending where i'm a thing where the word 'nuclear no nuclear. I just did it. I know there's two ways of it. One is wrong and i every time. I say it doesn't sound right but its nuclear. Oh yes common one. I trip in a lot of people do saturday night. Live p p the syllables in saturday. Night is a very common thing that trips people up. And i've heard i've i read an article about it right. And they say saremi light like the middle and say saremi ever. Yeah my tongue just sort of flops. The end of et saturday night live. That's what you say. Snl and be done with it. Yeah i've never had saturday night live but never had a problem with that one. But don't glitch. you're lucky is it genetic like whether you can royer time you. I the word argue. I n ruin my whole life. I just pronounced at one. Syllable rune and then people made fun of me enough. Every time i go to say that i say ruin actually now that it's finally collecting. That feels normal for the longest time is felt. I felt like i could feel myself doing it very deliberately. It did come naturally. it's me i've been. I've been trying to get the tea out. I say often. And then i found out that it's you you're supposed to say often you're not supposed to say the tea in the word often and i can't get that out of there. No matter how much i practice say often. I mean. I know that don't but i didn't know that. There's a write in iran. The correct way is to just say often. Who says you hill a google search. I did five years ago. Wouldn't double double check that counts. I get in college who his name was john and he could tell if people. It was spelled j. o. h. n. He could tell if people were not pronouncing the h. Is working for chicago. And i think it was just like a. I want to be an interesting guy. Tipping didn't work. I mean i find it interesting. We're all talking about him. I still think about him. You don and don comes up on this show because the man's name and the mascot naming the feminine name or the. You know early morning to me. I pronounce them the same. Tony pronounces them differently. what about you guys. Same dawn and dawn. Yeah tony what do you say. Don and dawn dan to down on so you so you put on an accent to say one of on the other. Why in in In new york right people say like dawn and then they wouldn't say dawn for you. See that show with draper. I say if that like it is possibly like a regional thing with how you do say. Because i did grow up. It is really just originally. So like saying like the classic mid west i'm a dominate is regional. Okay what about l. a. w. n. ver verses like an awning. Are those the same sound long running in the same awa and okay adding in warm. I'd just those are those are the same then. 'cause when it came up on the show originally people would tweet me all this stuff They'd be like what they'd be like. They were cope with other words to them had the same vowel sounds as dawn and dawn. And i would read it. And i'm like those of the same me they'd be like it's like lawn versus and i can't. I can't remember what the other one is now with. The other ones are but anyway people for whom they're different. They're very different okay. Let's see some people tweeted them at air iway. Nbs cho- to joyce says aside from prescriptions. I never measure liquid medicine. My fiance hates when i take a shot of nyquil directly from the bottle not because the potential germs but rather due to the rule breaking just mere everyone. I'm i rarely take liquid medicine. If i guess if i'm taking cough syrup i would just pour it into a teaspoon but not really measure it and i remember seeing exceeds on swig cough medicine from the bottle. Best freaked me out a little bit. I do the i. Don't i do the cup but just whatever the top line is. I'm not sure if that's what i'm supposed to do it up to the brim. Yeah you know what you gotta get. Mike is it. Looks like an alligator. And you put it in you. Put it in his mouth. You know what. I'm talking about tricks. Little kids into like taking their cough medicine. I don't trick. I've got a cough. And i need to take care of recently. I learned my husband when he does. Laundry uses way more detergent. That i just up to the number one line regardless and he. I don't know he's like up to the three or four line. What about you guys. Just the low line lows. I put a little better than look at the line. i just put them in and dump it in. Am i close. Think they're nobody's on the subway with me Okay here's one. This is a little bit controversial for me. Personally patrick thorns. Says unsubscribe from the podcast due to alison leaving in and agreeing to can reads rant about preparing explosives. If trump wins now. I debated whether to read this dot. Because i don't like to give a lot of attention to stuff like this however it does delight me to think that we're doing this just mere everyone but he described unless he didn't really he can still listen he just has to find it in click. Right look everyone's emotions and passions. Were running hot. when. I don't remember what chen said i remember. He was fired up and was a little randy. Yeah i do. i don't even remember it remember. I don't remember that coming up. I don't either that being said. I've been doing this long enough to know that when i am sure they didn't happen. It's the most time code. And i'm like oh yeah. I guess it wasn't there but my memory is not him talking about explosives. Yeah sorry but i feel like hey well i felt like i had something more valedictorian strong to say. But then i realized i don't you explosives. We're going to blow stuff up. I didn't say it it was like can can strongly felt that Biden was gonna win in a landslide like so strongly that it convinced me. 'cause he he made a good argument which is like you know. Trump hasn't collected any more votes and some of the people who voted for him have died and he he has swayed one person to his side and after his whole and he's like a you know a smart well read guy so after he gave this virus Apologize for getting kinda ranchi but after his rant which apparently included something about explosives. That are remember. I was like yeah. It really is gonna be like bluewave but we were wrong. I i think that you were support. You were being a good host and you supported your guests. You don't have to shoot that down. I will address that. Which is the fact that these subscribing. I left it in. I leave almost everything. In if i if i stumble over my words and mess something up that might come out. Sometimes i'll have a big part. And i'll say tony clean this up. Make these sound smarter. But i'm not gonna take out some of the opinion that's good that's new spin that's right. This is the real no spin zone. I'm worried now. Because i wrote down a long list of things. I want you to cut out from. Accept everything i've said. I can't go on record including your pains about shrimp pizza. Yeah i'm involved with the the shrimp industry. I talk about this. Let's see Oh here's one from greg heller. Former regular on the show when giving out your credit card info over the phone. Do you walk from room to room. So just in case anyone is listening. They will only here part of the number. I never thought to do this. I don't do this but i do. If i'm giving my credit card over the phone when the The person if they read it back. I'm always like who's in the room with you. It's a business you know worried about. I mean i guess right now there would not be customers there but still this. I hadn't thought about that but that's valid. I'm going to add it to the list of things to be neurotic about much. No no i don't do that. I it has crossed my mind. Just like oh if i save my credit card number so we could take it but i don't think he'd more than just the cracker not always. I guess i think sometimes they just need a credit card if you're reading the credit card you're also reading the expiration and or the code on the back to your giving them everything they need. Michael i live right outside of my door. Just air it out because it's so hot from all the purchasing. I'm old police on that one. Because i think that every time you buy it works it works. It works when you buy food at a restaurant every time. Ever in your life you've given that server your your credit card and no one has ever written that number down in an rip me off. Afterwards i think deadlier your credit card number is like if i started worrying about what's going to happen in my in my home or something when i'm reading it aloud i'd lose my mind. Oh also. I'm bank of america and they send me a new debit card every like three months and ruined my whole fucking life with the saved passwords on my laptop and my phone like every once in a while to be like. Hey there was a security breach. Here's your new thing. Be sure put in the numbers on twenty different websites pain. My parents state wants who went to las. Vegas would always give out a fake phone number. When businesses would ask for their phone number and i growing up hearing that not wanting to have to think of a fake number they had like it was the same big number it would give i just about my real number and now i guess spam calls all the time and i think i really wish that i had just wanted wanted to Be a little a little less honest you guys give out your number. I give it out. And i'm getting all the spam calls and it's ruining my life i have to all my calls and i miss important calls all the time because i get ten rubles a day. I missed calls. My phone's doing this fun thing where it won't let me know. Someone's calling in. And i'll just voicemail being like. Hey i just called you or i get a text from people. Call me back because now a lot of people know that my phone doesn't ring that's weird. That's not disturb this. Yeah that that should be. Oh maybe it is kind of the main function of a phone when you really had all their phones eight. Maybe i need to update the vote. Eight like ten years ago.

Why are you know so much about this? I'm just saying like a guy who's like in the city a lot and probably a lot of disposable disposable income it probably at some point heard about this hot food spot one and try it out so yeah spicy. Kumon lamb handwritten noodles. You guys enjoy. Enjoy them Jeffrey Epstein. Well his guards and stuff told us today when we took the tour that he loved it. That's right by the way you need a full day for that tour. Oh there's a lot to see in the town hour and a half and we realized this is a five hour six hour to or you need some time it's weird the opening mansions mentioned. There's like a like a little baby version of you as an angel. A little too Rubik a big painting a painting also of me. Is that what you're saying. Yeah I fucked it up a bit. It's fine we went to the location of by richly. Honestly though his house probably has some cool like passages and stuff what take away all the bad stuff. Forget about that for a second again. It could be a chill place for an escape room if you want it now so we went to the grand central. Oh location was again grand central station. We went to the one by their fifth. A Fifth Avenue Stop. Yeah but it was. What Street Fifty Forty Fifth Street? Thank you we went to the four minutes here. One Forty Fifth Street me Mitch. An in hand man and I will say this because a lot of if. You're a neophyte to Zeon famous foods may be someone who doesn't live in the city. You may have uh-huh maybe you go to a Chinese restaurant. Maybe you share a lot of dishes. A lot of these dishes are not easy to share and particularly the ones I would say that maybe our little bit of a struggle to share are the are the handwritten noodles which are very very good. But it's one big old noodle like yes. You got a handwriting. It's a bubble tape of noodle. It is a bubble tape tape concept that at the restaurant and told me I'd say it here. I thought he would laugh and laugh like you said he was going. I love did EH. You loved it you blew right by and I said at the restaurant I should say that for the show. He's a laugh when you say yeah I'll make you look like the King of New York City's yet audience back there in the. Wow what a metaphor Mitch. You don't know how deep your audience goes. They've been awfully quiet now. Their offense winning yes. I don't know if they've shot the lady. And the tramp live action TV this show or movie yet. They have any abby. Well I was GONNA say it'd be a good place at the the noodle is one big noodle that would be a fun. UPDATE DR so. They can't shoot some movies. This one the door is perfectly the play a mouse in the new lady in champions. Yeah yeah in. The scene of the famous scenery pushes the meatball over to me. As the bows going I wish that with cheese. That's really that's crazy 'cause sometimes onto beginning there. is she like grated cheese. And it's interesting that the writer wouldn't think that far ahead and say we're going to have the mouse in there for sure what's line. Which is why we you talk about thirties on balls? This makes sense and was like fuck up. Sto I don't get it. He added to the MO cab for for the mouse. That's how they do it right and this wasn't this movie Paul. You'll let me know if this was the first movie that you shrink Thinki- they use it successfully and when they blew me back up I was like keep an extra part short for the why we would traditionally. That's not how it goes. Make it real real small so small that the vast difference can't shoot Outcome and he also got it. Should I just go through the dishes. We got that were to start. We'll do you WanNa talk more about that excitingly long noodle I you know. I wish that there was frankie technology for the noodles roles and they were just multiple southbound two long Oh streaky technology big rig for many Israelis. Yes once I got a chunk of that noodle on my on my share plate I found it. I found it a lot of fun to eat some of it and just snip it off with my teeth and I think if I had that dish ulta myself I would have been like I'm This is a hoot. I'm having a blast but you weren't having fun because you will reverse is that I mean those. Are the words exact awards us but yeah no I was doing right now. I mean that we the dishes were hard to share. That's all I'm saying because they're also sitting against the wall tables Abel's were so we all looking at the wall and that's what you told us that this week. You said this is how I normally you just looked at the wall sense out to make the other work. So the handwritten noodles dishes. We Got Spicy Cumin Lamb handwritten noodles and spicy and tinguely beef hendrick noodles in soup. We got those two and now I know. The lamb is is one of their signature dishes. And it's one that's talked about a lot. I've seen some rankings of the entire menu and that's one that few people have at the very top list. I'll just say that dishes a home run. It's delicious. It's so so good. The sauces great. The lamb is great the texture the noodles is like I was saying it's fun to eat and spicy but not I think you feel the heat but but I don't feel like it's like so aggressively off-putting spicy. especially if you're like me in your something of a heat seeker you like you. You like to eat spicy spicy fair absolutely delivers on that Mitch. When did you think of that? The Spicy Human Land Handwritten tools. Aw You guys like that. No they shut out no and they cheered to get me to stop up. I'll tell you what I was walking all around New York City Day my legs were so take was a bit of a seat senior. That's good. He's mad. Mike Hanford dropped his Mike. Dan Chair and walked off. Oh retired he was. Yeah Sie Mich what did you think of them noodles noodles hot. It was sticky. Sorry Oracle Scoot out. It's what I literally two days ago. Did I do that. Head Ed. My Wife my sister in law and my mother-in-law altogether what did I do that right. You're right you're right the one that makes me self conscious because it happens. Organically is bad connection. And you're like can you hear me now and I'm like fuck. That's the thing that guy says. Well it's interesting interesting because it's a continuation of a phone call sort of Colin Response In the eighties. It was if you went to a phone and it was like who are you gonNA call ghostbuster ha ha that's right Can you hear me now. Ha we all have labs about phones. Right get around that pretty easily. I if I'm talking to somebody can you understand me in this instance so we don't have to get all confused than I'd say you know I'm black hair and black square glasses and wearing a gray workman's jacket you say that over the phone attention and action like the got it got it. Paul sprints. ooh ooh says sorry. They spent so much money for that guys. He'll turn and then some time passed and then like the fact that he'd switched out out being a novelty and now he's just like a like the guy in their ads. Yeah and it's like wait so now I just like this guy is his name. Paul I think his name Paul. He's just like Hey Paul I think. So what does he you square-rigged glasses and stuff.

Always at one of those things so you know there are some some training spices that they have that sort of. Put the new your arm and tighten it to the blood runs out to the beef and then asserts feeling tinguely and then you jack off with the beam. We asked the guy we asked the guy. We asked the cashier tired. He said the same thing you said and he said No. It's more of a mouth thing. None of it on the menu he said should be under your armpits. Your four under your knees bent knees with Nyu Dude. Anyway I did it. I did this stranger at early. He was grumpy. Well I mean what happened. King clones acid show interaction killed him one time.

Because I know this because I read about it at again. We're we're bad at hosting a food. podcast we should know more but I learned about this from there's Just walking around Mitch's using his. This microphone stand walking at like some sort of try pedal robots and he is implying that. That's what my life is like. Tommy John and that's a completely different angle. That when you were okay I got it. I used to read what he's saying. Can I just say though you put yourself down by saying we do a food podcast. We don't do it very well. Let me just say I bet there's a bunch of Fuckin- SCHLUB who thought to but they're not a modicum. They don't have a mob of the charm and love love and chemistry between these still.

Oh absolutely I just thought the broth was delicious. It was just so flavorful aver full of a lot of spice to it and spicy all around. You ordered spicy all around and read that whole like fucking letter that we did. PDF that the guy has the lobbying the F. Word comes out that's right the F. stands I I read. I read the Flyer that the you know the personal letter from Jason Jason weighing a talking about how he like spicy is what produces the flavor and he prefers everything spicy. He asked you not to order things. Mild and I was like well we should just to try to abide by this. Guy's rule sets rates. I feel like the right experience in a you know again i. I like spicy foods. I wasn't trying to impose that on the entire Party but I don't know I thought this one was good. But what did you think Mitch. Where where'd you see this? It was in the lobby. Oh I don't know if it's an every restaurant in the one we were in your man. Where was it? It was near the bean guy. I asked the guy to step aside so I could read it. No it's not on the menu. Well actually I mean it might be on the physical menu which I didn't get. I was just reading the menu on the wall. It was on the wall above the drinks in the location we were at and what was so. Let's see I'm trying to Orient Myself. We were on forty fifth streets and we entered the forty fifth run. It runs east West right okay so we were in So we went in there and we were we would have been facing south. I believe and then so it was to our right of whatever cardinal direction that is Camila disoriented that would have been west right yeah west to the West.

There's some people on the ceiling. We're going to need bachelor us. He's not joking we you. Did you like that soup. Msci I did the Mitch's boy I liked the dumpling soup. I like the broth of the dumpling. Soup the Mo we also got the spicy and sour lamb dumplings in soup. You get six dumplings which is an ample number of dumplings because them dumplings are big. Boys I love the dumpling. I thought it was going again. The broth thank you very flavorful. I really like lamb dishes here. Like it's just you know it was The the the season the meat was very high. Quality in the seasoning was really good. I mean we're just just like saying like this was good which I know is a shallow observation but it was it was it was fucking delicious and the and the Super Great Broth do do it at. Both soups had a great authored. Actually I think I might be with you Mitch and might have preferred the lamb dumplings to the to the handwritten noodles but they were both very good and I'm not as much of a soup. The guy is just like I'd rather just maybe have dry noodles and general. Wow well I liked the cameo. Oh because he said no soup for you like just a regular Nazi with a huge screen in front of an audience. It's a five hundred people. Give it a begum food. No despite my hairstyle new balance sneakers I decry the Albright. All right. Don't go crazy careful. You're in New York the Spicy Asian cucumber salad one of the cold dishes.

Last time I drank Stella's I got hype Sharabia and ended up in the emergency room fun second show. It's not related to this particular alert lager beer. The issue is that I was drinking them in the hot hot sun and then I ate some very salty or no. I didn't salty with. That was the issue I was. It's just having and then I got a little too drunk just drinking a bunch of water and if you drink too much water you dilute your blood and then you can end up like what it is for me. It's like all all of my muscles in my body. Were cramping at once. The most painted ever been in kept vomiting continuously. Couldn't couldn't get any fluids in me missiles today it was today and I had to basically go in and then liked it. I love that Shit. Fuck wider and they gave you basically saline issues and they just put in like like like fucking ten leaders of saline or something into my blood. This was has got him mold.

The whole procedure takes less than five minutes. And then he brought me up in a chair and said okay. Can you let me know what time it is. And there's a clock on the far wall and I had like perfect vision immediately and could read what was on the clock. This guy that was the prestige that was amazing.

From Scratch

Sam Goldman

"I'm Jessica Harris. This is from scratch. My guest is Sam. Goldman Co founder of delight a company that sells affordable affordable solar lighting and power to consumers in developing countries. Roughly twenty percent of the world's population does not have access to reliable electricity. Delight is is focused on providing cleaner. Cheaper safer lighting and energy in over sixty countries. Sam started delight in two thousand seven with Ned toes in whom he met at Stanford Hanford Business School prior starting delight. Sam served in the Peace Corps in Benin West Africa. Welcome thank you your first foray into the developing developing-world was not in the Peace Corps after college. You grew up with a family. Who caused you to live in several places? Your mother For example was focused on maternal health. Right in your father. I am agriculture. What are some memories you have of that? Well a lot of them especially when I was growing up where the some of the amazing vacations vacations. We took actually flying into a drug trafficking strip in the Amazon rainforest. You had to take a boat up Amazon for three four hours and it's just surrounded it by animals howling at night. Things like that which are pretty unusual and very sticky in a child's mind. What are some impressions of what Your Mother did for instance that stuck with you outside? These exotic Well I just remember especially in in India. She got plaque saying you know thanking her for making a contribution into the lives of ten million women and children in India and it was sort of like. Oh my gosh. My monsoon is really interesting work and she wasn't trying to make huge technological shift. She was trying to make sure that women understood that they should breastfeed. How was the experience of the Peace Corps? Different from what you expected since you had tangentially been in this world previously That's a good question. There's no substitute for actually doing it in living at yourself you can. You can read about it you can watch movies about it. You can theorize about it but when you go out and actually do it and you live there and you feel the seasons and you eat the same food everybody else does and you go and you work in the fields. NC How long and how much effort it takes to grow yams and then to turn them into a food food and and how unreliable your source of income is when you're dependent on the weather and the and the crops and food prices global all these little things that after a while you start to really. I understand what is important to people and it was in the Peace Corps where you had your first experience with kerosene lamps. Were you discovered how ineffective and dangerous. They are Dr and that had a deep impact on you. What was your exposure to kerosene lamps firsthand? When you're in the Peace Corps in many countries certainly West Africa you're giving issued by the government And kerosene lantern. And so I use that for my three and a half years of Peace Corps Service And you don't want to use it and the really the game. Changing experience appearance for me was when a a friend had bought from Walmart. Kmart or somewhere in led headlamp and they left the country. And I got there headlamp and so I I just switched over and started wearing this headlamp all of a sudden I could see things and I could cook inside and I wanted to read because it was more pleasant. I didn't feel sort of lightheaded when I was reading under the lamp and so and that's when I started writing. Led companies and saying. Hey here's this unmet market need. Can I distribute for you. We gotta make this happen and just simple battery-powered led lamps and saying what like. Why isn't this wise? There's a total market failure. Why isn't this happening and literally? Not One person responded to an email or a letter. So when did the idea for a solar lamp arrive the thing that really took me over the edge. My next door neighbor. WHO's a fifteen year old boy? At the time he got in cares he had a kerosene fire fire accident and he almost died and he got degree burns all over his body but he survived. And he's he's fine now But that got me research and I found out that like a million people a year die from increasing fires once it starts it spreads all over the place that causes a lot of harm. So people are they're scared of kerosene. They're spending a lot of money on it. It's unhealthy for them And it's really terrible source of light. It doesn't it's not very bright solar magical is you put it outside and it just delivers you free power and this notion that you're not going to be dependent on somebody else to charge and you don't have to walk or drive to a charging station you won't have this constant outlay of cash. It totally changes. The they've never been had. They PAT independent power control over their power independently. Before so you had this grievance with kerosene lamps kind of in your back pocket you made your way to Stanford Business School how does a biologist and Peace Corps enthusiasts Decide to go to business school planning to go to business school. I was when I was in Peace Corps. Essentially I I was I was and I was an anti-capitalist. I was violence environmentalist. I've ridden my bike across Canada kind of doing this climate. Change your out. It was doing all these things and then when I got to have been in I realized the only thing that was really really changing the country and changing quickly was business not none of but a lot of the NGOs and the public sector activities. I was seeing in my distant village. College of two thousand people. They just weren't having the same impact so I decided I wanted to go become a social entrepreneur and applied only to the schools that were really on the vanguard of that and Stanford one of them So I was told that you Used to have a beard used to wear a lot of necklaces. Here's what did SAM look like ten years ago. Gosh well well so I didn't have any money and I didn't have anybody. I had to impress for any reasons. So you were a lot of the local garb so very long flowing khloe close You know my best friend in my village was Taylor could be a living patterns of a living room all over my body or bananas or it was really sort of fun You know if you've seen west African close they're beautiful and they're gorgeous and their their creative Yeah and a big beard and sometimes colored hair and yeah just having fun fun. This is your Peace Corps years come Stanford Business School. How long did that last Well you know you drive up that palm-lined Boulevard and and you know every leaf that falls off a tree get somehow miraculously swept up by someone somewhere. It's hard to be quite so and you don't realize you you just you know. We're humans right. We adapt to our circumstances so when I was in a village. There's no washing machine anywhere. You do it by hand. Nothing ever gets clean and so that was just the way I kinda was. But then once I shifted Focus Lucas. She is kind of cleaned up. My Act I'm Jessica Harris. You're listening to from scratch. My guest is Sam. Goldman Co founder of delight a company that that produces solar lighting and energy products to consumers at the bottom of the pyramid in developing countries. were one out of three. People does not have access to reliable energy the idea and prototypes for delight grew out of a class that Sam took at Stanford Business School with Co founder. Ned toes them called all design for extreme affordability. Now I say it was out of the business school but it was really out of the Stanford Designs School Where Pioneer David Kelly? He founded did this program. Can you talk to me about how the idea went from just that to something more concrete In in that in that space yes absolutely the Design school was almost a startup. Within within Stanford the first semester was essentially learning how to do design and human centered designed the way Idaho kind of teaches it with all sorts of mini projects on the second semester. Was We had a client a customer which was an NGO based in Myanmar and we had to go and actually produce a produce something valuable for them that they could take the market. I worked in the water space predominantly and. For whatever reason there was a small group of us who we just weren't as excited excited about doing something in the water spice and we really wanted to energy and I personally was pushing a lot for doing something in energy. Because I've been peace corps and I had lived for a couple of years with a kerosene lantern iron and. I knew that there were better options. And so I am. I knew that was true. Also in Myanmar and so we kind of coalesced and talk to this Ngo about whether we could go and and would they be interested interested if we could come up with a better source of lighting than what the typical population in Myanmar would have. If we could design something would they be interested in taking market and they said yes. That would be a good project. Let's do it. What how did you discover in Myanmar specifically because of the totalitarian government? I mean the country Used to be a source where people would go to me on mark for higher education education. All over South Asia was recognized. There was actually somewhat of a grid that went out to these villages and there was electricity. And it's all falling apart they didn't even have kerosene which is sort of the worst farm leading for most people on the world that you carry sing was banned so people would burn diesel as their only source of light if they could get it. Or if you didn't WANNA burn diesel which as you can imagine pretty noxious way to live your life life. You would pony up for very expensive. Tiny little candles burn quickly And then if you had a little more money and wanted to splurge you could buy these really noxious office lead acid batteries. which would run for like a day or two and they would charge them up on these massive like Nineteen Twenty and nineteen thirties generators And they would tell us like. Oh yeah you know that. The batteries are being charged. Well if the acid is boiling the whole thing was so amazingly wrong and backwards that that it really it blew our minds and I think the story some of the stories were what allowed US I think ultimately to get some of the venture funding. We got in the valley. What are some of those stories? You know we So we participated in this one called the J. Venture Challenge Being Draper Fisher a leading venture firm. What they do is they take all the winners at the various business school competitions and they pick them all up against each other in this one? Dj Venture Challenge. We went into just sorta tell the human story and the story we told was about a woman named Mia and and we had gone to her village and less than some very early prototypes. Nothing like what we have now. It was a large family and they would essentially get up at like ten PM. Go out and dig up the earth and work all night making these mud bricks which they sold for half a penny each later and they would have to work all night and then get done in the morning and leave them out so that during the during the day they baked by the sun and then they could sell the bricks and so these lies completely changed their lives but she literally started crying when we said you know we have to take these prototypes back. They don't they're not gonNA work long term. This is just something we've put together. This is like one lady out of two billion and this is going to matter and it's going to matter a lot what did the initial oh prototypes out of the D. School look like yeah there were I mean and obviously the methodology is done and get it get it done fast and learn as quickly as you can right so I mean we just had we. You know you'd slap a battery into a box and run a naked wire off to a little circuit board with led sutter to it. I mean it was not a consumer product in any way shape or form and we just wanted to experiment with how much power how much light is enough. What are kind of price points that we need to hit To make this to make this viable and then also is it to have have to be solar. Can it can be a combination of you know just fast charging technology batteries are not distribution. Was Harder for you than you had expected. Can you talk to me about what that landscape is. Because that's really the gating factor in a way. Yeah you're absolutely right. We don't realize that the you know The average base of the pyramid family or individual is not a consumer a lot of them are subsistence. Farmers they grow their own food They by just a few essentials that they absolutely need. They are used to word the mouth and they're used to testimonials that come from people they trust not from companies That come from some other land. And that's that is. The hard inexpensive part is to get out out in actually build a new category. That does not did not exist even a couple of years ago. Can you give some examples of just firsthand experience that you had in educating absolutely yeah I mean and you know we were. We were at this award ceremony yesterday and one of those speakers who came And we're honored to have him was the CEO of SAS microfinance which is is one of the world's largest microfinance institutes and we have partnered with them and we originally started? I did in two thousand eight when I went to India because by micro finance loan officers. There's are actually going out into the deepest communities and you know groups of women come once a week and meet together. And they distribute loans of two hundred dollars or less to these women but it's an opportunity to say here's a new technology and it's coming from somebody. They trust who they know and have known for many weeks and say here it is. Here's how it works. If you'd be interested we'd be able to offer it to you on some kind of financing so that it doesn't become a burden and they can go and try it and experienced that's an example of a distribution channel which has been very very powerful for Russell very good partner another partner for you. Is the French company Tall. Who are they absolutely so? That's another really interesting one that you would immediately really think about but you know. Tall has an interest in being an energy company. Not just in being an oil company. Even though that I you know I don't know exactly their revenue split but they have Retail's almost like mini marts gas stations. All over the world and they have a very high concentration of them in Africa and South Asia also and so we've partnered with them to be able to put our lights into their stations which is a trusted. Well known place that people can go to if they want to buy the technology. The price of Your technologies range from is at seven dollars to forty dollars depending upon what what you're selling really ranges from probably around eight to ten dollars on the low oh end up to You know just south of two hundred dollars for a solar home system with multiple lights and you know renting a radio and charging cell phones and doing other things to remember your first customers. We had first customers. I mean we had sold things before we moved overseas. We were working out of a garage and soundview Mary kind of the typical startup. And I remember we. We had sold things before we even had products side sold in two. I think it was the emphasis foundation in India. And when I think about an ounce ridiculous right we hadn't we hadn't finished making the product we certainly hadn't chipped and when we did try to ship it. This is before the we didn't know any details of international business. You have to get all these permits and you can't just bring a product into a country and we didn't have the the VAT today all this stuff so it was a pretty steep learning curve. I would be really excited to Redo another business at some point where I you don't have to go through all these learnings and can just get it right the first time we're talking a little bit at ten thousand feet on the impact that these lights and these products have had. Can you talk to me on a more granular level on how you've changed These people's lives. Oh absolutely you know we are this was in in depredation India Pushes a one of the largest states and we were coming back and talking to a farmer at night and he was saying Oh and he was using Hindi. And I don't know the exact phrase we use essentially saying thank you. Delight is is almost like a God. It's you know. Thank you so much for having brought this I was coming back and snake almost Bitney but I saw the snake because of your light and then proceeded to tell us all these stories of other people who've been bitten by snakes And leading to often fatal accidents. I heard that you were bit by a snake at some point and you had a kerosene lamp. Yeah I did I did actually during walking. You can't really see anything. I did. Walk into my house once and got bitten by a snake. Drop the lantern at smashed. I'm sitting in the dark. I know I've been bitten and it turned into quite an adventure because my health center didn't have any vaccines and a friend of mine. Put me on. The back of his motorcycle drove me seven kilometers. I get to this health center and the and the guy says oh great. Yeah I have I actually have the serum for you And you're really lucky because somebody came in last week for it but they couldn't afford it so I could give but to them it's like Oh gosh. You've spent the majority of time in the developing world. You're living in Vancouver now in Canada. You're living in India prior hire. How long were you in India after business school in getting this off the ground after business? School I moved to India. MICO founder move to Shenzhen China and essentially I started up. The sales and marketing was running product development. He was doing more operations and finance. Part of the company is in India for a couple of years. But I'd actually done my high school there so I had some familiarity and and in new some people in India and moved to Hong Kong and opened the office there as we started to expand more internationally And now I live in in Vancouver The my wife. I'm Canadian in my wife's also Canadian and speaking of your wife I was wondering what you're kind of Private social life was life. You know you've you've had had a nomadic existence and then I saw you walk into the office here With your wife Rosie. Who is pregnant? It's nice to see that that part of your life was able as you be enriched simultaneous with the you know your your professional one. How did you meet your wife? How did you meet originally? Yeah when I met Rosie and undergraduate and we we were together And there was something magical about the way we were but school ended. We both went our separate ways and sort of kept in touch with each other. Maybe once every five years or so But a group of friends from undergraduate. We do kayaking trips every once in a while now we've turned it into habit and in British Columbia in Canada and so we saw each other one year and the next thing I know she was coming over to Hong Kong on a one way ticket. Things going from there. What are your parents? Make of evolved nece though of course they're ridiculously excited and proud of all the work that we're we're doing and it's it's so much an extension of what they had done beforehand just opening up their very good personal relationships with people all over the world whether it was in India India with the business or or health news or whether it was in Rwanda with the government communities and just being able to link me back into those families and individuals because in the end whether it's business business or whether it's development work it's all personal so they had a they had a vast rolodex. Yeah it's an interesting how we use the term rolodex. Now you spent your life shifting back and forth between developing countries and Canada or the United States. What are you find most striking striking when you return to? Let's say Vancouver. How lucky we are the world's not fair the work that people have to do for a couple of dollars others today even in your daily in your daily life like what do you find striking the landing at you know you land in Vancouver? If you're coming from Beijing are coming from New Delhi and all and it's like you have to squint because it's so bright and the son like the sun's just blaring so clean and pure and the air is so little thing the air is so pure. Where else do I get this kind of air that I umbrella? You'd think everybody would get and it's so silent. The streets are more or less empty. Nobody's bothering me. And I can go home to my house where I can drink the water out of the top and it's just all these really kind of banal start which we take totally granted but everything works.

2412 - The Apocalypse Factory: Plutonium and the Making of the Atomic Age w/ Steve Olson

"It is Thursday. August twenty seventh two, thousand, twenty my name is Sam Cedar this the Five Time Award winning majority report. We are broadcasting live to tape steps and steps and steps from the industrially ravage Ghana's canal in the heartland of America. Downtown Brooklyn USA. Famous. Vacation pre-tape shows. Still get content even what we're not doing the show. How does that work? This is what normal shows do. They prerecord, they give the podcast out. That's it. Boom Bang boom and youtube shows to. Nobody else does it live every day three hours? We do. But then there's the sense of Oh. Is this a letdown because it's a pre-recorded show enough Fascinating. Story. Written by Steve Olson. Science writer. Author of the apocalypse factory plutonium in the making of the atomic age. Talks about basically the development of plutonium. We recorded it. On the anniversary or very close to the anniversary of It was Nagasaki bombing or maybe it was Rocha I mean those who are a couple of days apart I can't remember exactly recorded about a week and a week or two ago. And? There were actually two different types of dropped. Off Plutonium was one of the bombs. But I will leave that to the science writer to explain. all that to you. We are still on vacation No me is doing a recap of the RNC which even though I'm speaking in the past I know is a crap show. And I earn extent regretting you know not Not Mocking it in real time but Let's just let's just do this election. Let's get this going. Shall We folks? In the meantime. Checkout. NOMI show youtubecom. The No. Miki show. Find that on Youtube. Put a Lincoln to the link is obviously in the podcast description of this and in the youtube description of this. So check it out And we'll be back tomorrow with another interview say were Darby. She's did a a book about. Three women who were in white supremacy movement. A little disturbing but interesting fascinating So we're gonNA take a quick break right now when we come back Steve Olson, the apocalypse factory plutonium, and the making of the atomic age. We are back. Sam Cedar on the majority report on the phone. It is a pleasure to welcome to the program. A journalist and writer and author of the apocalypse. Plutonium and the making of the Atomic Age Steve Olson. Welcome to the program. Thanks very much. So we are actually talking on the anniversary of the seventy fifth anniversary of the bombing of erosion. And The the book you have written is about one element of the development of of our. In, many respects are nuclear age in addition to the bombs and it is one of the the key elements fact I think you call it the single most important site of the nuclear age. And you the book you've written is in many respects about what you call the the humanity's greatest intellectual achievements. But also moral blindness which could destroy us all. So let's I guess start with just the implications of the seventy fifth anniversary. Commemorative events going on all day today to mark the seventy fifth anniversary of the bombing of Shema. My Book is actually even more about the bombing of Nagasaki and the seventy fifth anniversary of that is this Sunday and there will be remembered events all day as well. And your book is more about the bombing of Nagasaki because of why. because bombs two bombs dropped on Japan us, two different kinds of materials that can be used to make atomic bombs. Scientists realize right after the discovery efficient in one, thousand, nine, thirty, eight that you could make an atomic bomb using a rare isotope of uranium and they produced that isotope during the Manhattan project at huge. Factory, in Oak Ridge Tennessee but my book is about the other material that you can use to make an atomic bomb and asking Tony who told him wasn't discovered until nineteen forty one just a few months before Pearl Harbor and I argue in the book that that's actually the reason the Manhattan project got started because with the discovery and plutonium by a scientist at University of California Berkeley. Almost, they were ways to build an atomic bomb and if we had to waste building Thomas bomb than the Germans as well. So that's what's the reason. The original original reason for the Manhattan project was to build an atomic bomb to counter the possibility that the Germans could build one I and and just you I mean you re traced the history a little bit I mean we've touched upon this just a bit in the past on this program but but we you just outlined for us a couple of the major players involved in the Manhattan project and just some of its basic history. Sure that people that I profile in my book number one is the man who discovered Tony, a man named Glenn Seaborg at the University of California at Berkeley. He was doing research on just fundamental scientific research on heavy elements like uranium and discovered that if he added a neutron to a the most common isotope of uranium, you would create this new. Element over the course of just a few days I normally this would have been the most one of the most important scientific discoveries of the twentieth century and it was normally it would have been slashed across headlines everywhere but SEABORG. Know the scientists realized quickly ask this element plutonium could be used to build atomic bomb. So he's he's one of the characters broken. Similar was fascinating scientist who has really active throughout the from the nineteen forty s until the nineteen nineties game head of the Atomic Energy Commission was involved in many of the Cold War and even after the Cold War was active in making decisions about America's nuclear weapon program. The other person who I feature in my book is the Italian physicist Enrico. FERMI. Because to make enough plutonium to build an atomic bomb would require not only uranium ore but lots of neutrons because you had to add neutrons that uranium plutonium and the only way developed lots of neutrons. is in a nuclear reactor. So. In nineteen forty, one when seaboard discovered plutonium may miniscule amounts amount that you couldn't even see in a microscope just detect them UC radiation detectors but a firm me at the University of at Columbia. University was working on a device that would become a nuclear reactor and. Scientists quickly put the two together. They said we take plutonium from one side of the United States and there's nuclear reactor that Enrico family is working on the other side of the United States. We can build essentially industrial facilities to make enough plutonium to building tonic weapon and that was that industrial zone was the Hanford nuclear reservation. Of the site for that was chosen in nineteen, forty two and I just happened to grow up in a small town about fifteen miles away from. Hanford. and this is. Interesting. This is in Washington state and I WANNA I wanna get to the the sort of the experience growing up in there but give us that's just like you know when we talk about Fermi and we talk about Seaborg I, mean obviously Leslie, groves the general oversaw much of this project. was was where like how? At what point do these scientists become conscious? Of. Exactly, what they're building both like I mean I think you know. From. Conscious of the the the project itself, but also conscious of the implications of what they're building. It's very interesting. Leslie grows the third major character of my book as the man who drove the Manhattan project but there's another character who I talked quite a bit about in my book. A man named Leo Szilard, another emigre scientist who moved from Europe to the United States just a around the same time that Enrico Ferri dead and in fact was involved with for me in building new reactor and Lisa Lard was the very first person to conceive of the possibility of nuclear chain reaction way back in the early nineteen thirties and he recognized salons very interesting character in this entire history because he recognize from the very beginning. Of the the dangers that this discovery would pose to human beings he was both. Excited about the technology and thought that it needed to be developed, he was very afraid that the Nazis would develop a bomb before the united. States. But from the very beginning, he was warning about the dangers vanity if this technology were developed and he continue those warnings. Throughout World War. Two even while being involved in the development of the bomb at the University of Chicago someplace place called the Matlab, which is also where seaboard work. So A. Similar hard seaboard firm e Leslie Groves. They're all tied up together in this really interesting human story as the bomb is being developed. And I think at one point if I remember correctly solarge said something to the effect of it was really just like It was sort of damned if we do. Damned just a little bit more if we don't type. That is true and you know when he tried to control the ways in which the bomb would be used. So since we're talking on the seventy fifth anniversary to hear Shema bombing. So Lard in the summer of nineteen, forty five, the decisions were being made about how and whether to use bomb. put together a group of scientists at the University of Chicago and they developed a a report. directed to you as policymakers that urge them not to use the bomb on Japanese citizens but rather than having demonstration project or some of the to make the Japanese government aware of the fact that we had come and see if that would be enough to reduce the Japanese rendering the war. So. So large was hoping that the just simply the threat of the existence of the weapons would cause the Japanese to surrender I'm we're getting maybe a little bit ahead of ourselves here, but the I mean. There's a lot of controversy it seems to me about the necessity to have dropped certainly. I mean both the bonds I mean there's obviously controversy about Rochambeau but I think there's even increasing does even more controversy about Nagasaki and in both instances. It's unclear that there was an immediate need to drop these bombs. So what after the fact? And I also WanNa talk about the different materials that are using the two bombs because I wonder if that wasn't also factor as to why these bombs were dropped at least the second one to basically you know do alive test on some level or a live show. But what is your sense of of how these scientists perceived it after the fact? Well there was quite a bit of discussion during the summer of Nineteen forty-five among scientists themselves about the ways in which the bombs should be used and this alert the committee on which solarge served in which that advocated not dropping bombs on civilians but rather doing a demonstration shop was probably the most visible of the discussions that were taking place and. Opinions were divided even among the scientists. Some felt there was no way that a demonstration shot could be carried out because over for instance, the deputies, American prisoners in there or what if the shot did work then it's possible that the the war could have continued for even longer. There were a number of objections to doing it that way. Now after the bombs were used it became clear that some of the considerations about not dropping the bomb that press enough consideration had been given to that option, and some of the scientists felt that they were sort of caught up at the end of technological random to use the bombs and to use both props. But you know when you look at the history of it and the way in which this was actually made the scientists themselves had very little influence and could have had very little influence over how bombs for use when those bombs were built. It's difficult to conceive the set of circumstances that would have led to them not incorrupt. You're right that musty groves the met the head of the Manhattan, project was very interested and believed from the beginning that two bombs had to be used that the first bomb could demonstrate that the united, states could make atomic bombs and the second one would demonstrate that we can keep making atomic bombs and keep dropping them on Japan until Japan surrendered. Now grows had an additional reason for using those two bombs, which is that he had invested two billion dollars of government funds into these two different ways of making atomic bombs, one with uranium from Oak Ridge Tennessee, and the second with Blue Tony I'm from the Hanford nuclear reservation in Washington state and he's early was interested in demonstrating that both of those approaches worked. And and we should say because I think it's just important that you know when we talk about this stuff and so it's so abstract. We're talking about the deaths of hundreds of thousands. Of of. Women and children I mean largely And and sometimes I think it's like it. It's easy to sort of see it. As you know, these are about machines only but had. massive moral, and human implications. So all right. So Hannaford are Hanford I should say What why that location and tell us just sort of like the physicality of what was built there I mean, and then we'll. We'll talk about the sort of the the problem of the physicality that were built their. Colonel in the US Army Corps of Engineers was sent out to Oregon and Washington. Well, actually to the west coast generally also looked to the anti sites in California to find a site that had been certain demands. He needed a long cold water to cool off the directors because these we're going to be large nuclear reactors would be built in needed electricity and Grand Coulee dam had just come online. The. Year before. So there was electric. Needed a rail line to haul the equipment to the site and that happened to be there. the ball. He needed a site that was isolated that didn't have too many people that would have to be removed from the site and there were about fifteen hundred or so people living in the area that he chose and he wanted to be far away from any large cities. So there's something went wrong with reactor or with the other facilities built at the site not too many people would be killed and he. was flying over this sort of barge arid desert clain in south central Washington state and the second he saw he said this is it just has everything we need there was there was no no doubt about it. In fact, he flew general grows out. There are a couple of weeks later and said, don't you agree that the perfect site and chrome said yes, it is. So that's why they advertise was built It's it during during World War, two, there were three nuclear reactors felt the Hanford site these were the first large-scale nuclear reactors built anywhere in the world. So all nuclear reactors since are based on technologies that were developed and So the the the sites are built there, and then the the issue becomes what do you do with the byproducts? Tell us about the massive auditoriums sized underground tanks that were built and what the thinking was behind the storage of these byproducts. Yeah the tanks, the waist which were still dealing with today well to make plutonium is a two step process for small take uranium or and you put it into a nuclear reactor and some of the uranium atoms are transformed into plutonium, but then you have to get the Tonia out. Of those uranium fuel elements and that was done at Hanford in these gigantic. Windowless concrete buildings, the workers called them Queen Mary's because they were at the size of ocean liners. These these massive concrete constructions that rise from the middle of the desert, and it's actually they were gigantic chemical processing plants. You put the uranium fuel elements in one end of the plans and the plutonium would be chemically separated out from the uranium and a tiny little plutonium would come out the part at that plant. But you need a massive quantities of chemicals. To be able to do that process and when you use that process in those reprocessing plants those chemicals would also become highly reacted well, the people that were operating Hanford both during the Manhattan project entering the Cold War, we can talk about that because Hanford greatly expanded after Baltimore to. they figure. Well, you know we have a word when we've got we're fighting Germans we're finding the Japanese. Now we're fighting the Soviets I will let future generations figure out what to do with these highly radioactive chemicals. So they started building gigantic tanks. Dig a hole in the ground with twelve or sixteen of these tanks build twelve or sixteen of a cover up the tanks with the sand and dirt from the desert, and then start pumping these highly radioactive chemicals into those tanks. Those things had designed lifetime's twenty years. and the Department of Energy though it has made progress in cleaning up, some portions of Hanford is just starting to deal with the chemicals in those tanks. Now, seventy five years after more than seventy five years after we started filling those tanks up with these highly reactive chemicals and it's really the the most radiologically contaminated site in the Western Hemisphere The Russia has a similar sites where they made the plutonium for their topic bombs and and those are pretty much the two most contaminated sites in the world. And and and to be clear, these these tanks are the size of like a like a small auditorium a big. Large your large one. Hundred Seventy, seven of those tanks sitting underground and they have fifty, six, million gallons of these chemicals in them. No, it's a huge problem. It's GonNa take. Hundreds of billions of dollars and decades to clean up the material in those things. So walk us through like you know at what point do they did someone say, Hey, you know remember those tanks they're supposed to last only twenty years and it's been twenty two years guys like you know. I mean at that point, we're in the the sort of the right in the sort of I, guess the peak of the Cold War by that point right? I mean, we're talking like in the early sixties and what I mean, what? What, what is the theory at that point? Yeah, well, they've noticed that they should start dealing with tanks the tanks started leaking, and some of these radioactive chemical started entering the the soil underneath the tanks and making their way toward the Columbia River. But you know we should talk just a little bit about the Cold War because it's really interesting. What happened at the end of World War Two? you know. It was Even, even when they hear Shema, bombs being dropped seventy five years ago today people realized that they were going to make that kind of vomiting more. It was really a technological one that he used a huge amount of radium. Ten Times more than the amount of plutonium in the Nagasaki bomb and it was a very dangerous body was very easy to set that up accidentally. So even by the end of World War Two people realize that when we build future nuclear weapons, we're going to be UC plutonium. So all of our bombs today. Have a small pit of plutonium, essentially a small Nagasaki bomb at their center, and it was the Hanford nuclear reservation along with a second sight in South Carolina that made all of that plutonium for nuclear weapons and that and that plutonium is just simply less volatile. Is that it? Well the reason it's used a nuclear weapons is is more powerful than uranium So you get more bang for your buck doing it that way and it it. It's easier to make At. The end of World War Two gross was ready to drop third bomb on Japan and that would have been would've used Tony, I'm from Hanford that bomb was ready to ship across the Pacific when Truman said, no, we're not going to use anymore nuclear weapons on Japan. This was even before the surrender you didn't like the idea of killing all those children so. He put an end to the nuclear body and that serve on using plutonium Hanford never was shipped from the United States. and and so the Hanford got a lot more I guess activity through the Cold War I mean what? What did I'm just curious as the mentality of the scientists right? I mean at one point it starts to become clear what they have unleashed and I'm curious as to like you know. What? How these scientists dealt with that. Yes during the Cold War six more nuclear reactors were built at Hanford and settle more chemical processing plants. So the large majority of these radioactive chemicals were were developed in the cold. War. And there were scientists that were monitoring that situation I mean you can think of. It's comparable to a situation today. They thought they had a median concerns that required the generation of this plutonium I mean my grandfather worked at the Cedar. Hanford and so I, I know that mentality is. They said we've got a job to do. We've got to get this done and sort of and people will deal with the consequences later. Well. Today through our daily lives and activities. We are putting carbon dioxide in the atmosphere. Using the same mentality, right which is that well, we we sort of need to leave our lines and we know that carbon dioxide is gonNA cost catastrophic climatic effects the future, but we're just going to have to leave it to future generations to figure out how to deal with it. and. So we're not we're not. We're annualise sort of the mentality in the nineteen forties, fifties and sixties at Hanford might have been the same. They might have said, sure we're generating these chemicals, but there's there's GonNa. Be a way to deal with people will engineer solutions to the able to to. Isolate. These chemicals from the environment, and in fact, there is a solution we can't clean it up is just GonNa, take a huge amount of money and it's GonNa take a bit a commitment from the federal government for decades to get it done to not have those materials sitting there threatening. Everybody Down River in the Columbia River millions of people it'd be exposed to those radioactive chemicals. Yeah. The tanks star leaking in a serious way. How how would we go about cleaning that I mean is it is it Find. A mountain to bury it in or what? Come. Before you know my son's in environmental engineer. So I watched this process a lot of you know these just these hideously contaminated industrial sites. And they're all kinds of technologies that aren't familiar with. But if enough money is spent on them, you can you can really clean up the even varies seriousness, and of course, this is one of our most seriousness interesting. The process of Department of Energy is developing to be able to handle these ways and they successfully done this and other places including that South Carolina that. You take the waste and you mix it with sand in in a in in very high temperatures, and you essentially create these glass logs. It's called vitrification, and then they highly radioactive waste is immobilized inside of these glass logs. Now you're right. We don't have any place to put these class logs because we don't have a repository for high level nuclear waste in this country anywhere. So even when they're in glass logs, they'll just be sitting at the Hanford site waiting for a deep repository built, but it'll still be better than those chemicals system. And of I mean as at least some of this material has leaked over the years. There's you right that there were or periods where there was A. increases in cancers what I mean. What what has been the the environmental I guess and the the health implications for people living in and around. Hanford. That's an interesting and difficult question to answer I lived up by just fifteen fifteen miles away from Hanford. And crew up there, and so I'm down winter. All of the people who lived with me. My family members are down Wenders I know lots of people. It was called the tri-cities, the three cities that are closest to Hanford they have been exposed to these radioactive contemptuous over the years When, when someone your family gets sick and live near Hanford? It certainly logical conclusion to draw is that that sicknesses somehow related to the radioactive exposures that we had. and that's an important piece of information. We have to take that into account in trying to assess the health effects of Hanford, but there is another kind of information. I'm I'm a science writer and I believe in science as a way of the best way that we can have of knowing thanks and sciences have studied the populations around Hanford very carefully. Or as carefully as they can, they're always limitations in these kinds of epidemiological studies. and. They have not found evidence of huge increases or a large increases of health effects, cancers, and other problems in surrounding populations. Now I have no doubt that there are individuals who have been affected. By a radioactive releases from Hanford, but. Do I think that my exposures child are going to cause health problems? They might my personal conclusion is that the risks that I faced? And I was lucky people faced greater. Risks are small and I would go to the price duties today without any reservations despite the fact that there's plenty of radioactivity there but it's closely monitored. A lot of that radio activity is in those tanks and is not being released. Leaks are not large, not arch amounts of material that are getting Columbia River we have to deal with it because if we don't. Exposures we bunch greater. But their base lots of risks in our lives and everybody has to make decisions about those risks. I personally choose to believe that the risks that I received from an for our small. What how how much and it a at different points? was there an awareness of what was going on at Hanford, by folks who lived in the area I? Mean it is. It's one thing to say I'm going to choose to you know take these risks. It's another if you don't know what the risks are. Guest and there wasn't much awareness. You're exactly right about that people in the area weren't told about these radioactive releases the people who are running hand for felt that it would just creat needless concern among the people in the area if they were continually told that there were radioactive gases and radioactive water that was being released in the Columbia. River. Now the people who are running Hanford may very well have believed that the amount of radiation being released did not pose. A serious health risk. That is A. That question is hard. It's hard to figure out exactly what they were thinking back in the nineteen fifties and nineteen sixties but you're absolutely right that the people in area were not told and given that the ability to make a choice about whether or not they wanted to be exposed to radioactivity that was coming out of those plants. At what point did they become more aware of it? By the nineteen seventies or so at which point we had thirty thousand nuclear weapons, all of them built around a little bit of plutonium and and brush had forty thousand nuclear weapons and we realized this was just insane. We had at that point, a million times the firepower of the bombs that were dropped on here, Chaman? Nagasaki So. This countries had and way more plutonium than they would ever need as the Cold War ended, and as we started instituting arms control agreements, the number of weapons dropped. And began having taking plutonium out of these weapons and putting it on the shelf sitting on the shelf down at the PANTEX plant in Texas. And that one we didn't really have a need for any weapon told him nor did nor the Soviet Union or made a Russia. in fact, we have too much that we need to get rid of this material and their base that have been going on for decades about how to dispose of this plutonium because if a a terrorist or some other group were assisted plutonium it would be a very serious threat. To people everywhere. So, at that point mode, Hannaford and of course, money facility and Soviet Union were shut down and the nuclear reactors turned off the processing plants were shuttered and and at that point that's when the Department of Energy and the government realized. Wow we have a terrible mess on our hands that we're GONNA have to deal with and and by about the nineteen eighties, the attention at Hanford shifted from plutonium production to cleanup. Of Not only the processing plants in the tank waste but there were all kinds of contaminated equipment Ju-. Just a just a mess that had been sort of dumped into trenches and covered with third over the decades, and there was no possible way that we could just leave that there because eventually those contaminants who are GonNa find that into the country river. So we've been thinking that area for the past three decades. Where there were there were there lawsuits when people like found out what they had maybe been expose to was their attempts at looking at that I'm curious as to What the reaction was I imagine if. I'm I don't know thirty five years old I've got a ten year old kid. Let's say and I've been growing up in this area and then it gets announced to me like Oh. Incidentally by the way, we have a tremendous amount of some of the most radioactive material in any concentrated area in the world and some of it's been leaking a little bit into the river. I think my reaction would be one of abject horror. Well especially, if you're sick or if your child is sick or if you're sick and there were plenty of instances in which that occurred in this area. So yes, you're right. Absolutely. There were thousands of lawsuits filed by down winters with various health problems who contended that Hanford had been the cause about those health problems and these wended their way through the courts for decades as people tried to decide on this, there's actually a critical that was just released called. For Down vendors, which recounts the long history of people trying to be compensated by the federal government for the for the Halifax they attributed to Hanford. You know nobody how the government fought hard. It didn't want to establish a precedent that that people who lived near a facility could attribute health effects to that facility and then receive some sort of government compensation. So they fought these lawsuits. Many of the down Wenders were ultimately unsuccessful in other cases. Most of the lawsuits well the vast majority of them were settled but only after a very long time in some cases after the people who filed a lawsuit died and for far less than the cost that people spent on their health. So it was just a an an unsatisfactory experience for most of the people who filed lawsuits perhaps the only thing that they're able to say as. Yet but we made our voices heard we we. We told the world about our problems and and the fact that those problems could be connected to Hanford and and that is probably the most important thing that came out of that lawsuit today where commemorating the seventy fifth anniversary of the of the survivors of the bombing and those people for seventy five years have been telling the rest of the world that we can't allow this to happen again and and to some extent, the down winners are in the same camp as those survivors of the atomic bomb. lasting is there any type of civilian use for this plutonium just sitting there? You know basically waiting to be buried in some point Well, that's really that's an interesting question and gets into some of the details of the way that you generate nuclear power for electricity. Most of our. Most of the five, hundred nuclear reactors around the world that are generating electricity just use uranium. But in the same way that whenever you put up your rain him into a nuclear reactor, you inevitably generate plutonium that's just part of end product of generating heat for electricity and really Solarte's the first person to think about his again he thought about so many things to back there even before the end of World War Two he realized that this Tony could also be extracted from those devices and be used to produce electricity in what are called Fast Breeder. Reactors and this and people have been arguing about this technology and Kim for decades. Now, the problem with doing that is that when you start extracting. Tony Him from uranium fuel cells in from power plants you almost and generate. Parties, Pretoria, and all that plutonium is susceptible to being misused in bombs. And for that reason, people have turned against many countries including the United States have turned against the USA greet reactors, but other countries have. And More of Tony that exists in the world. The more dangerous world is there's a treaty that has been proposed to try to control uranium. It's called the fissile materials cut-off Treaty. And that's proposing that we don't generate any of these materials that can be used to develop a talk. So either the uranium that was used in here, Shema bomb or the Tony. Amused. People. That treaty has not made much progress lately, but it's if we're ever going to eliminate nuclear weapons from the world which we need to do because eventually used if we don't that treaty is going to be part of the solution. Can only. Hope. Steve Olson. The book is the Apocalypse Factory Plutonium and the making of the atomic age. Thanks so much. We'll put a link to that at majority dot. FM thanks so much for your time today really appreciate it. Okay my pleasure.

White Castle with Mike Hanford, Paul Rust, and Fran Gillespie (LIVE)

"This is a head gum podcast. What's up listeners? Let me tell you about a way away creates thoughtful thoughtful products designed to change. How you see the world? They started with the perfect suitcase. And they can't just say that it is perfect crafted with features that make travel more seamless. Now they offer a range of essentials that solve real travel problems so all you have to think about is where you're headed next. Maybe a Barstool California maybe Sioux Falls Iowa. Hey maybe even to Tallahassee Florida because getting away means getting more out of every trip to come away knows does that everyone has a different travel style. That's why they make their carry on an array of colors two sizes in two materials a strong get flexible polycarbonate an energized aluminum. If you don't know what those terms mean. I obviously slept through chemistry class. Second half. Don't worry about it means they're good. I myself for us for our coast tour. I was sitting on my gear around own clothes and whatnot. My toiletries my unmentionable. 's I I had all that stuff in an away bag. I have the bigger carry on now. The Big Kerryon Kerryon up sized to make the most the overhead bin. It's a one hundred day trial. Try any away product on the road. The carry on is the other one. It's got a built in compression. Pad Helps you pack more in four. Three hundred sixty degrees spinner wheels guaranteed need to offer a smooth ride and TSA approved combination locks to keep your belongings safe. There's also a removable laundry bag in both of them to separate thirty close from clean clothes which I love hey soil some garments. When I'm on the road how could you not happens to us? All you don't WanNa mingling mingling in with your clean clothes. It put him in that way laundry bag so the carry-on the bigger carry on the key.

We got a great great show. My name is Nick Wider and before we go any further. This week's Roast is courtesy of at Ryan effing awesome. Let me introduce my a Co host. Foodie Guiliani read. Ah Yeah Up New York. Oh ooh I feel so weird. I don't WanNa sit here. Move Your fucking here either. I just see here like fucking shit the end of the table. There's room move the chair over Mitch's People Listening Mitch's way out on the wing on the side of the table. Do what I'm doing sort of put yourself in the corner just wedged that not hang that one our guest. He's a sit there. We're GONNA make our guests sit way out. They're on the flank. Just take that one and nudge that seat over there you go scuba that seat over more. You're fine name like putting your rocks. On the table you gotTA straddle the corner. That's all you can do. Who was here for the first show makes a annoys why did you yeah should acquit? While you were behind we have no energy the Mitch. Our you feeling right now you hanging in there so you're wearing a white castle dry. Perhaps tipping your hand as to your view although we'll find out in a bit maybe we'll see Emmett. It has already texted me. Drop drop drop. That's right you've forgotten the first show and you also forgotten the four prior shows on this tour. The play your drive it I got it. I'M NOT GONNA forget it this time but I'm not going to do it right now. So we'll wait a minute. We'll see what happens. I'll say. Howdy Ho on my the old time? We'll get to the fucking things you want us to do. Stop yelling as yellen for us to do. We'll do do donahue the spoon nation. Michael Williams gave me this hat and he's from White Castle. Is that right Michael Williams Williams. You started embarrassed. What if we give it a bad score scores going up? I like the White Castle. Chile is yeah. I mean we're we're going to be honest because the boys can't be bought. I I certainly can be my go. Text me number five. Hi Nick Hi Mitch. Some of our classic Early Show Banter a saying hello to each other. You got to be so mad at you. Get to go to Boston my hometown tomorrow. But tonight we're the greatest city in the world still tomorrow when I make the bottom one of you fucking assholes but tonight Philly is the one who sucks Mitch. I told you this before the show and I did mention another rush on our earlier episode. We had the Great Jamal Buoy to review under of UQAAB episode. We'll be on our feet soon but I was too embarrassed to tell this career move by him. Bad career move for him but I was a as far as I can tell for New York Times columnist. It's impossible to get fired job. So the he'll be okay but I like I went to of all the chains that I thought I might have some sort of bathroom emergency and that we've been eating at caught off guard by carver. Healthy bowl place and I I not only had an emergency. Em there so much grocer than even you saying. I took a shit there. This is how we should start food. podcast right you you clog the laws the toilet at Kaba. Let me say Suing in their look. Let me say this. I'm a guy that Shit I had. I didn't mean to literally say Shit. Yeah I here's there was not a plunger in the bathroom but there was a toilet brush and I said this this can serve as a makeshift plunger in a pinch and it Kinda war that's vile. Why is is that so gross? What do you think it's doing in the bowl? What do you think that toilet brushes do upper so I should have just like left it in there for one of these poor underpaid service workers to deal with shows like shit? I did my best with tools at my disposal disposal and I was able to get after a few minutes of doing I was able to get a flush and clean bowl and I left in. It was like no uh-huh crime ever been committed. What were you eating that? Your your shit so sticky cement-like probably everything everything on this to any of the meals. We've had I was trying to get a cellphone late joke in their butt. fucking like digested com. Tom Turns into a solid stool. As you're saying that's what I was trying to say. This is dirty off the top. This is fucking grows perhaps appropriate. OPRI it for this week's chain kidding Michael Drop what Jiang told that. Now I feel self conscious about telling it. No you definitely shouldn't have told okay. Sorry everyone go ahead Mitch. How nation once again him with a little drop lease? I'll put my hands up on some chips when I dip you. DIP WE DIM. You put my hands up on some chips when you dip I dip. We put my hands up on some chips when I dip you dip we. Oh Boy oh boy what I gotta say. No one likes that song the Mitch. I Love Your The dip from the HAL guys episodes so I had to add your version blah blah blah. I don't believe you can't believe that. David Knicks Shit. Especially Nick Man with a penchant for song parodies. Here's what happened and I told you this afterward you it doesn't that keep that up and temp at four fifty. It's it's IT'S A. It's a shallow to me liking pricing. That was a lot of fun. It's not true I Here's what happened. You did that. And the reason I froze up and had like a weird reaction because literally at the same time and this was a weird like like you know so different you and I sorta thing at the same time I had been working on a new writing for a pilot. That of course did not go. And we were I had written of Fuckin- dip chip parody out the A dip into a script from several weeks ago. I showed that strip to you afterwards. You wrote that script of quick. I didn't it was the thing I was like. Holy Shit UCS somewhat on this thing. You ad-lib this this thing that I in written up previously your hard work comes to be easy. Doc You sit you dumb fuck if only you had the energy to actually type something out of what you do. The keys are hard to push an Mich.. Should we get our guests out here. Hell Yeah Yeah this is going to be a wild episode of chaos is about to unfold I up from the birthday boys And the sloppy boys give it up for Mike Hanford. He did the dip. What does that all? That's a damn I don't think that's GONNA keep dabbed. They told me that would be cool to do. I think it was right. It was very cool. I really four. I hate the slowest showdown housekeeping. You guys need to settle what you want for dinner after this people WanNa know what they want. This is a legit question. It was never really figured out going to hectic. I don't think we need to put it in a food order right from. I haven't order more. White Castle in our next guest is from net flicks is love and the Great. Don't stop by give it up ball Mama's mom the the love of my Momma did a little dance and and Paul Doc I love you but it's against the spirit of dope boys to be that entertaining policies policy and finally from SNL and big now. Please welcome friend. Wow I saw I loved it. I'm very cool drumming. You came in a rock and roll music videos. Feel Oh quite a few. I just WANNA say full disclaimer. I'm kind of struggling right now. Is that relate to what we had. Yeah it's moving with your my body at a pace and lay dormant for two hours but guess what we you said to us at the restaurant today. The you've been Pesky -tarian mostly for the last year. Yes yes Jesus actually. It's like going in straight to nil. I don't drink heroin please. Yeah Yeah it's like when Mormons but fuck no not married just in the by. It's not clear at the White Castle. Mormons were on the interesting feature just kind of going at it. You went in their own. Rather do you have you. WHO's had white castle before this is is my? This is my first visit to an actual restaurant never bad. They don't have Mountain California. I have only had the white castle frozen burgers before. Wow which are good those. I've never been. I have had the frozen ones and the time I've had them. The funds have been as soggy as the ones I had today. I'm sure worker way round from me. This was my first time at White Castle institution really as someone from Iowa. I think they'd be out there. They're not really no. I remember when I first saw. Wade's world you know a representation of Illinois right and I'm just a stone's throw away from Iowa and I thought I thought Oh. This isn't my culture. I don't I don't know these white castles that they speak of. I don't think they ever entered. Correct me any any desmoines. But I feel like it's never really come in Iowa interest. Yes this is smart. I have had the frozen ones and I'm from Illinois and I have had white castle several times and I even had white castle at the White Castle. We ate at today in Sunnyside on each side. Queens I'll tell you this. I have been there several times and I was keeping it under my hat so it could be alive reaction Shen am I god. I don't like Whoa interesting. You heard him before you dip shit you know when you first start dating someone and you don't want them to know. Use the bathroom. Yes I do. Three girls in the audience come on girl thing so maybe not your crowd but so when you first start dating someone you want to cover up that you use the bathroom and I was dating someone that lived in Queens who had a car and so I'd be like we should stop or white castle on the way home. I'm GONNA take a shit before I get to his house. Oh that White Castle. Yes I went in that bathroom. That was a grim ribs. Done anything yet. You went in there so you didn't get anything you just use the bathroom. No so take that. You're hungry for something so as long as we're here might as well use the bathroom. Oh my God. They didn't have any hamburgers the battle I used the bathroom there several times. It makes. It makes this specific location was called Brown Castle. I think that's under the cleaning crew. You're doing my joke. It was an excellent joke. You Fools you. Who Proud Castle shits right back with? My these New Yorkers just didn't get it EH. Yeah they're definitely not as sharp as people from Los Angeles Shit. Do you guys like sliders. Because I will just say this I come from a baseline of slider hatred as Jerry. O'CONNELL fan I love it. Yeah cheerio coddle. You don't twin pretended to go missing for attention like two years ago Jerry Jerry. O'CONNELL's twin pretended to go missing for attention. Ads Crazy it was like Donald yes. It's two hundred different. Last twins work out just like the letters up. Yeah no his twin was like I missing being tweeted a missing. How do you declare yourself missing? How does that scam? I'm about to be missing. Yes lighters are bad but mostly because the button takes over cre- like that's what I liked about a proper Berg gives it got a lot of patty lighters sliders. They're fun slide right down your throat you can sneak them up on food which is getting down in a snake like possession stay. Stay stay the pink. Oh you listening at home you should have bought tickets that was founded this. There's just like listening into an episode of Mr Be. Get them full of facts when he just listened to the be. Okay okay. Let's not go down another being man Ted for those. You heard the first show. We talk a lot of names being mad lot of being talked. Mitch's still lying on the ground sleep. Is he dead or dead. Was All fun okay. You Sat in the chair. It was classic in the chair backwards cool and then ironically the opposite of cool. uh-huh fell backward as older and heavier. Each falling on the stage hurts quite a bit. Yes yeah and he's still on the floor. The bed has become a reality. -ality tell that it is hard to stand up you talk now but it will happen to one before the night's over Wolf one of you will fall or your chair of saying. Oh I expected the podcast to kill one or both of us but I was thinking like coronary blockage or suicide ride pratfall. How am I so out of breath from now you guys are GonNa Epstein like you're going to be hung young but Mitch did it just just doing the last two podcasts? I don't WanNa keep on bringing up. Do you guys always bring up epsteins. Is that the new theme with a torn up about it since it happened. Ah He's alive Mitch. I'm telling you we're GONNA find them cheap dad out of this is your slider fan. Is anyone else's slider fan anywhere else on the panel into sliders. I do we change the subject to baseball. We're still on fast food okay. We're still on your opinion on sliders pitch welcome welcome. I'll hear it. I hate them. People who slide in baseball you should be running ways agree run run everywhere okay so you said slider and a different baseball than I thought because I thought you were talking about this kind of pitch like throwing a slider that's interesting. I hate those too but I was talking about the base. What do you call them? The base says base runners when you're sliding into I and you feel a sudden burst diarrhea. The program over at home for this one. You tell them what team you're a fan of the from the baseball the baseball world. I should say because of where we are keys La. I'm also not really more of a dodgers the way people people are not from New York. Mets the mets amidst the New New York best. Wow I gotta say it is so cannon the fans are I guess so very three to pets too accurate for yourself money wise. That's how it goes you guys just just like the podcast because bitches head reminds you of Mister met. I saw how excited you are down there. He's it's not as many stitches. Your crave case. Is that what we got. No believe me. No a crave case is twenty of the same slider. Oh Wow if there any men in the audience who wanNA correct the one woman on the panel. Aw please just do that as loudly as you want. Hey I'm with him. She was wrong. Girl Crave Steve. Kay only give you and it only costs sixty six percent of what irregular. I get paid case. We'll just say that the falling over all of that was whatever I put my hand through the chair. It really. We did hurt quite a bit. Are you okay. Yeah the one that when the when the when my hand went through the chair at hurt you really committed to it I did. I was barely moving. I don't WanNA concern anybody. Mitch pit. You're bleeding a bright green goo. The avert is from. ooh What he's it was trying to be an alien I is it is from Green Goo. Let's acidic or just funniest person he says that comes out of his mouth is gold so when it dies by bye I'll tell you when it dies when he tries you only laugh when he's not turning. I want to start with. I wonder Sir with Rust here because previous episode I feel like we talked about our meal and and I know you went separately so I wanted to give you the opportunity to start things off with white castle. You went on your own. Oh that's very nice a you nick have to do that Eh. You'RE GONNA have to pass you can pass No I just feel like the kid who was like. I'm not going to go to the birthday party to hang out with my mom. It shouldn't get to talk for you. Guys had a party. You had a good time. Wasn't party Paul. Why don't we can do this? I respect the hung out with his mom. That's sweet yeah. That's fine I get to hang out with mother tomorrow I'll take you. Yes yeah I went to I went to a white castle by myself. Yes which white castle did you go to. I went to the one in Bushwick. Okay they want to get granular on this. Are you guys cheering for Bushwick neighborhood of you. Choose cheering for that. Bushwick area White Castle so it sounds like people like that white castle that that's a good one. Are you cheering for your mom. Because she birth you are because she loves you because you think he's off. What do you think that was do you? You think people lived in the neighborhood or they a combination. I think it was a combo but it did hear some very loud people. Some folks in the crowd tie the White Castle. I like the. The neighborhood was great Raymond and it felt this really nice. Everybody was very friendly now. There used to be a white castle at the Gramm L.. Stop that was very popular very popular and it was closed down but it was. It's like a full staple in that neighborhood so I bet Bushwick is maybe the closest to in that entire region be. Yeah I think so so you you go there. Are you doing over here. I'll do good excite me here about the one white castle was where the big legal in the episode not to speak until spoken to so. I don't want to upset Him. Yeah what did he say. Daddy rules All and then I said well why are you wearing the diaper it. He said Daddy wears the cloth. I've lost a stretch of what we're doing. Don't change the subject until the Cock shifts. I believe is what you said. Aw so the four of us have like focus on his dick when it moves it in his pants we changed the the which is already weird not quite sure why it's shit. And why is it shifting. Nick things got a mind of its own snake. Do a stay with his dad. It hurt no I would. I've been doing physical bits of does live shows and it hurts my back so bad. I'm not GONNA do it. I'm sorry. What was your at least? Favorite of my least favourite was receiving a stone cold stunner for Mitch. Rotate did on two occasions hurt. Yes because the way you have have to sell the stone cold center which also I'm bad at but we need to sell it like it may l five s one disc injury got aggravated. I didn't enjoy it. It was bad good at the stunner and I think that should be a warning to everyone on the audience. Not Fuck with me.

So you change your order to sliders writers with Jesus slider with two cheese burgers and fries. Oh got it okay. So you got the default regular slider which doesn't come with cheese right got it. That one is an. I'll read the description because I think this is their signature item. One hundred percent. You've seen grilled onions and served with a slice of pickle on her signature bond. So yeah it's really just. Onions pins and pickles. And I believe catch up by default rates Iran. You say oh you have to specify catch-up yes got it. No there was no catch up. Okay ooh the plot thickens. Do we add catch up. Is that what we were difficult. catch-up being cast what happened. We opened up one of the sliders and there was one small pickle it it was just one yeah. I don't know where that came from. All this talk Hashtag Thommo Guy Popular Hedge was there.

She's handed to you and you have a hot slider. She's yet to nurse. Her eyes are are barely opened. I actually nursed her when she came out. And some White Castle sliders came out the my ticket. Oh the bodies growth miracle the beautiful beautiful. y'All needed miss out on much friend. You said that nick and I looked like tired. Dad's at the restaurant very very very dangerous. Insane both of them are in like a for how old you guys are. I would say I mean. There's no other way to describe them as pajamas. Does your clothes that are not for grown men to wear out of the house and they're both just kind of like were tired. The promptly explained blend. They're both grumpy grumpy. Bear they said to us but at least we changed a more appropriate outfits before we got on stage. Nick the top head is really doing well for you. Yeah I mean we both look tie podcast. Look we look very bad and we felt very bad and we kinda got a second wind later but it was not related to what we're eating. That meal made me feel worse for sure. Yeah we're very. We're very tired. We're very grumpy. That was like the idea of the tour so far us us going at that meeting up with hampered at friend who was the worst acts what her mental state was when we walked in there. I'm still got soggy jeans because of the rain why teams are still soggy. Because the rate is the rainfall by rain made you come the rate of crime. It's so beautiful when the rank when it's raining it's so beautiful. You just worry you lock people away Dr Freud. I'm not sure I came name after. The rain came on my pants as sticky whatever. Whatever I'm tired okay? It was truly a hellish trip. It was raining and it was the hour. That kids in Queens. Get Out of school Oh stool So yeah with a hellish trip. I would say seven train out there but when we got it was weird because while wearing a backpack at a spinney at trying to blend in. Yeah it was. It was kind of a chaotic scene on the train. Also I think the US Open is going on right now. You mentioned in the same borough and so that was crazy but we went to sunnyside location. As I mentioned the first thing that was he was he was waiting. I'm really great at homework. You know the pass by a homework with the first human action we had inside. The restaurant was a listener recognized. Is this one here is that there. What was your name? We didn't get your name Matt lovely to meet you. Hey Matt Hey Matt thanks for being here. Don't ever do that. Shit Matt said Matt approached us and I think before or I mean obviously before introducing himself just said. Don't get the clam strips their gross. That's true and we've followed his advice. Glad we might be loss. Bill Clinton who knows anti chicken rings might put me. They're designed the puppy. So here's what are what are order and that that included the chicken rings that Fran just mentioned we got the castle pack eight which includes ten sliders a sack of twenty twenty chicken rings which I just feel like are an abomination just on site. The idea of taking chicken a factory form chicken lived lived entire life in a cage in the dark. And then it's killed and it's meat is ground into goop and shaped into a ring. First of all fucking hell. That sounds like a dream. Come true to me if somebody was like. Hey Man after you die you get turned into Lorraine and bring nourishment to others like right. I like the dark. I'd like to live in a little the poor chicken. Yeah I felt bad halfway through the chickens and it also comes with a sack of fries and so we got they call me copying the copy pasting the menu fries. You didn't have to say sack. It says Saka fries on the menace like what Santa Brings Toys with with American cheese and after the sliders all oh natural so we got five and five on the chicken rings. Come with I think they come with some research. We asked for the ranch. I can't remember we asked for race. I asked for lots of sauces they. They needed a sauce because by themselves. I mean that's true of nuggets too though Chicken Nuggets Nita's sauce the ranch how than the Marinara which we had for another right. I'm also helped. Wake those tickets up a little bit. I'll just say like I feel like that meat. Chicken meat was so low quality. I mean you need a sauce. It's so fucking dry. You need something. Tom Thing to write to get it down your through this snake. Snake- they stay snake re-injure my back wheels Mozzarella sticks you. Say Ron six. I remember good when I was walking up to the theater I saw the marquee boys sold out and as like AAC far from it. You guys you don't know no prisoners take one gift certificate. No one white castle hat did it come in a bag with three sliders. Yes it did use those. Yes yes I will use the free slider Gift Card. Sorry why is the one who says we can't be bought. I think we can be bought. Well I I only brought it up because I think there's as a rep from white castle. Nadia Tonight here is Mitch. albom out earlier. And we've said terrible things we're trying to We're trying to be honest. I like the honesty reminds me I saw saw funny sentence.

Ah I will say that you are as Raven laughing but why get was laughing all the way to the bank seven sequels Lahore juggernaut voice. There I did. It was impassioned.

My parents died when when you were like nine and seven. I agree with that but at the same time they also sometimes people have never met each through its both sides of that very well. I Lo- I really did like that original site and when I visit and White Castle slider without Jeez what did he talking about. What are we doing the podcast? Oh you're talking about the slider. They were good. I like them with cheese and without Geez. They're both good thank you. We're on the same page. God you're do you you do this. How do I do whites?

A crowd full of he wa. He stepped off a train. Platform or crowd full of people collectively shouted no and tried to stop him and a slow moving train pulling into a station rolled over him and he died slowly elite the whole time he was going to get the autopsy US rock hard. I hi John just a guess that I probably can't make this call at point on that pet snake to. He told me this have a pet snake. We don't needed to dig into the net. He Shit that's right scales scales scales scales. Hanford did you like the slider. The regular plane slider probably probably my best of the bunch. Your bet your favorite of the bunch and how about you I'm excel no was. It was stuck to the container. No I guess the gray the gray surrogate son was probably not my favorite but the meat inside. The Fun was so hard on gray. Gray's not that bad. I think it's a color for food. It's unappealing coming. I like gray gray. You waiting funds and you can't. What is it? A good grief safe oatmeal. Maybe around a good great food. Great food are grapes. Gray they start Lord out kind of sounding like then you see one and they're not no not on that. What always on there? I'll say and this is kind of loophole. I'll say like kind of old Glock. Oh that's good on. I have one you can usually salvage it by scraping off that top layer for all of you and you'll be amazed tuna fish in tuna fish sandwiches Dan which has grown deliciously great it becomes pinkish. I send it back and tell them to great up please. You're the McCarthy of tuna fish. Get those thing goes outta body here. We got six menu items from White Castle. I can't believe how little we've talked octave wider. We got cut to the surfing. We about something real quick. Yes please guys know a I couldn't hear your introduction. Exactly White Castle is loosely based on the movie White Palace by With Susan Serandon. What do you mean based on a movie they want it was based on a book? Wanted to call the book White Castle. They wanted to call the movie. White Castle. White Castle said this movie. This book and movie is too steamy got it. We don't want the sex related stuff in in the confines of ours so they changed to White Palace. The what did you guys think of the slider. It's difficult to talk to you Paul. Because as I can't tell what is a lie. What are you talking to the Orange Buffoon? Dan Guzm Def- I will say the fries were highlight cut. Fries are good bringing the crinkly is the way to go love your price. We got the chicken and Waffles sliders the impossible sectors. Ns Er frontier of what you mentioned. What did you think of all those Mitch? Servant Different Turf was bad. I'm sorry my absolutely putrid. Those were disgusting. It's got both the Alaska pollock plus beat Patty with cheese in the same sandwich and wage to betty. They should not offer it. It's dare food. It's disgusting and also the individual. I had just the fish because I want to see it. It's like is it all of it coming together. That's making weird or is it the fish and that was the worst by just. Having some of the best there is an audible Groan in the. Aw when you mentioned the eating the fish yeah yeah is the first thing I eight was a bite of that. I think that set me off into a bad a bad track truly awful truly bad I the White Castle Guy. He's here he came to a beauty pageant to see his daughter booed by these just a hat salesman. And I like the circuit tour. I will say the impossible sliders impossible one meters good. They came plane which was maybe a kitchen mistake. That's fine but he sees on it I think did she say the thicker one. Yeah Yeah I like that. I like those okay. CIDERS great chicken and Waffle slider which has a little bit of gravy on it and has vacant crumbles. It's between two Belgian waffles. New added the bacon crumbles. I was there for that comes with it. She said Bacon grow you said baking crumbles at one point he beethoven they want the one with the Bacon Bacon couples because that was what it said on the menu favorite thing I gotta say those were good. I liked like that one the Belgian waffle. That's good I like the way the Bacon Criminals Look we should just not look at the food and you should just eat the food. Because I think that there's something about the way it looks that informs how you feel like it will taste. Sure Blindfold on and Edith. Yeah all right. I guess we could. Next time we go stand at the ordering counter put the blindfolds line folds. I'd put our Chins on the counter. And they just slide them into our faces the slider are you describing the butter face of food. Ah Have you guys ever watched this This type I think just the type of corn called me bus eight mate so this is a fast Armar. Our Buddy Manno told me about and I watched it and I was like I love love this just as a work of art so when I'm still gonNA check off to her. What the Bait buses is is that it's like A? You're aware of what the Bang bus is. We all know what the being. Yeah we all know but if someone didn't know because they don't watch a ton of porn we can tell her the bank buses like the ideas they pick up a they pick up a woman on the streets all fake but they become a woman on the street and they like take her in the bang bus and then they have sexual there the bus so the bus is similar. They pick up a guy on the street and they come on and they take them on and they put a blindfold on him and they sit and they have a sexy see woman on there and they're like she's going to. Hey do you want her to give you dome. And the guy's like yeah. He's like a like a must be a straight guy and he starts Put the blindfold and then a guy comes out and start sucking him off. And then I watched a bunch of these and every Time gone the hold on folks he was going to say every time. Yes yes. It's such a specific formula at some point during the act. The guys blindfold comes comes off and he's just like Oh do what the we'll get my dick sucked by a guy. We'll give you one hundred bucks if you let him finish these like Oh gone. A reluctantly has sex with a man. It's so great. So so and one hundred dollars to be able to suck his Dick yeah. That's what that's realistic. Please please let me suck your de so when when you're watching these analogy this is research. I need to talk about us us kids. I'm reading an INTRO. For by White Castle episode when he gets a subscription can be on his corporate card White Castle. Did you you hear Nathan Fillion bought the entire enterprise. I hadn't heard. Yeah Yeah. Wow that's true. He felt like it was his namesake. That makes sense as the star of the show. Yes yes yes. And the color of his skin he's a white man who was the star of. ABC's Castle yes guys. I think we're at the point in the show where we should give our final thoughts on white castle. What feels like ten minutes is waiting right? Now it's very hard for him to get to do things all in the podcast before you know. The drill will go go down the line. Give your closing arguments in favor of or opposition to White Castle and then conclude with a fork score from zero zero two five four French Glaspie seated in my left. I'm I you don't have to go. I want to brand is going. I MM-HMM I. The castle was quite so your soccer from agreed room. I messed up on the. Oh yeah you got the button on the outside bugging between the Patty Eddie Thurber. You're okay. GO FRIES THAT'S A. That's a plus for me. The other food honestly the time it hit the bottom of my stomach is been truly coming out like frozen yogurt vanilla. The cab with a friend and I was like the cab needs to pull over now and Dan so let me see. I don't live long moving on. It provided me with the bathroom when I needed needed. One and is a safe space for people of all creeds makeup so pardon me Mitchell makes us less problem in creed it's just I have a soft spot in my heart for White Castle when you know I was living in the Midwest and had a driver's license. We went there almost every weekend. So for that. GotTa give it to forks to wrangle. Aspe you've got so sentimental and gave it well. The the food sucks and truly it's not even diarrhea. It's like a bull poop that won't da all right rest man go ahead man. Of course free a hat Hanford. You know this wasn't my best outing I had. There's some food I'd never had before.

There's no other place that gives you fighters there's no drive-thru sliders I like that it's a fund. sliders are fun. I like it in a lot of them. I like it makes me feel giant like that can throw burgers up in the air and eat them. I've seen you guys were paying attention. I threw burgers in the air. I caught him in my mouth. NATO eight of I've seen you do that with a big Mac all right blow whoa. That's a wider talking about. And here's the one thing. It was a baritone. Oh here's the deal. Cows Kim fish should not mix.

Without even though I'm a dairy dude like him without the highlight I think if I'd grown up with these fries. These my favorite fries fries. Because I didn't I of affection for different fries but these fries are good Chicken rings are gross. And I think I think it's just gross even exist. The Servant Turf is awful.

Awful imposters are pretty good. Chicken and Waffles sliders fun the Mozzarella sticks are pretty good. I feel like this place is if I had if this was for me I think the gross place that I love is Jack in the box. It's on the West us coast and thank you. Yes and I know it's discussing. I know it's awful. I know who took someone who'd never eaten there as a kid as an adult and they had it for the first time to be like what the fuck is is this place but because they have some nostalgic connection to it to me. That's a five four restaurant. I might feel like that about white castle grown up with it however I didn't and as someone someone encountering this for the first time as a grown ass man I feel like I can't go any higher than right down the middle which for me is three four three four white castle white castle. It's time for a segment. You brought us some food. We're GONNA open our mouths and eat it and then opener mouse until you're hot. Takes the snacker wax next. The song is brought out a big a big box rather of bags of food that you guys have brought out here. So so. Here's what we're GONNA do. We do this on the first show. I'm going to take this box and pass it down the line. Everyone take out one snack that you want to try and that will be something that the whole panel will taste tastes desk. So box does count. We said last show. You can't eat the box if you man you definitely can e box okay. All right brand. That is enough to you but we don't go blue. No you gotta take the box. He's hitting the ball. You've never done the snack stack before. I'm so sick and tired. I like that honestly I was saying to pull earlier.

Barbecue chips within the last one. Yeah with a different on. I don't know what to tell you. They're probably backstage mum.

He was sitting here by microphone we played that really like we we should have said that up a little better. Hello. It's me Commissioner Evans. He's here.

Evan Susser friend of the podcast, frequent guest is a is also the acting Commissioner of the terminal champions as he has been sentenced inception. Yes. All right. I'm gonna read a brief statement. And then we'll open the floor offer discussion. Okay. Hello Doboy, use use Aung guest. Mike hampered welcome to the two thousand nineteen tournament of champions munch madness mouth of the border edition. I just to play that Emma's not here. That's the reason. He didn't address her. I apologize. For my absence last week. I was occupied with the duties of fatherhood and hosting a completely original food based podcast deli. I am happy to be here this week. However, but I'm extremely unhappy. With how the tournament has been going. How in a world in a word horrible. Wow. Many agreed areas have been made while I stepped away from the wheel today. I'm here to correct them and wurley we're only the week and a half of all while his thankfully been established the losers of the tournaments are being fed to jaws by Dennis Leary. The ref. Completely logical. Yes. Where do the winners? Go. We have not established the leaning tower of pizza like last year to the Elliot's to show them. What a burger is like in the first year or two the devil to make him. Good like during chicken fight. Yeah. The audience is left to wonder that's too by the way that alien metric that was established by our guest. Jessica McAllister first ever episode of the tournament champion real key franchises have been left out of the bracket. I just want to say, I think it's a really great great. It's like it's the idea of like what's the ideal gift to an alien to be like, this is what a borough fo several key franchises left out of the Brock bracket. Yeah. Including mos- Ambaja fresh, well, adding two more chains at the stage may be unrealistic, adding at least one if necessary. Wow, it is for that reason that I am now declaring the live show finale, not a three way. Battle. But a final four come on. Discussion of the logistics of both of these topics. So we have to discuss first of all who are these burritos and tacos going to? Nick. Unzip are ever year. Holding your breath that all tied to dick. Okay. So the taco the crunchy taco supreme I got. We're discussing. Okay. Let me know what I can talk about this thing who doesn't want to it's four. Oh, no what we're doing today. Problem. Number three. Yes. Booking? Okay. Okay. Hammered. We're an end, Nick. Where should the loser? The loser. The taco in embryo loser goes to Bruce the shark way. Our guest today from county banking the birthday boys in his band. The sloppy boys do podcasts. Mike Hanford is back. Great dad loved to be here. We we're working on this show. We were feeding the losers to to the Bruce the Josh shark, and it's fed to him by the ref. I think people know I assume that that the shark is name, Bruce they do now. I know you'd say I'm just saying like you initially threw it out. It's kind of like, this is a learning podcast. Well, you learn things from it hampered Bruce shark gets the tacos Breda named after named after. Oh, yes, we'll bergh's. Hold on blackston punch-up on jaws. Right. Your thank Clint monologue. Winter's going to where it goes to. Thank lynn. Why though we've always had explanation will you know, like. Valencias job is to spice up the copy of a of a Hollywood awards show. And so he needs something to give him some spicy inspiration. Yes. The the winning taco and burrito. I like that. I feel pretty everybody. Feel good about the winner goes to Vallance. Uh-huh. Yeah. Okay. Winter goes the Bruce Vallance, and he's going to write the Doboy life Anneli. There's no better resting place. That's perfect. Blanche? We'll get him to to punch up the life Anneli, which I will be very much a part of. Now. Let's talk about that life in it. Yes. Uh-huh. So mos-. One of the most popular. Breed or taco chains. It's in the top five and yet not included in the tournament. I've really yeah. I've seen when I've never been inside. We thought about doing mos- it was partly logistics. The closest one is in oceanside, California where my parents live. So I could go down, you know, like your parents limit. I make a stone and see your parents thank once again for bringing you this world, what do that shit? And then. Baja fresh, which I really Elliott the only person with any knowledge of food ever. Pure on this podcast thought it was agreed. Baja fresh was left out. So what I would propose. I'm going to go on a limb here and say, I know more about the LA restaurants than Farley. For the Elliot is more of an aright. I I one I do one. So here what here's what I would propose a final four at the live show with a audience pick. So we put on how mos- Baja fresh or pass winter burrito and taco what that would be. I would make Reto out of in and out burger and make a taco of a Wendy's chicken sandwich. Options. We'll people are just going to pick the weird the weird on them that wouldn't be gone. No, I want. I want the easiest one. I think this is your given one of these chains a free pass straight to the finale everyone else has to work its way through the bracket. They got they got to either scrap their way up the ranks of fat chance kitchen and our losers bracket or they got a win all the way out. So they can make it to the finale newsy give the fucking on ramp. Like they're getting on the highway that just because it's fifth in the nation. Doesn't mean it gets all the way to the end. Wow. Here's the thing though. I'm the Commissioner in the real world, not the ideal world. This is a world where celebrities are paying two hundred and fifty thousand dollars to get their kids into Harvard. Right. This is the way of the world. Now, how much does your parents pay to get you an ethics? I applied to eleven schools. How much pay for them to take you? I wanted to eleven schools I got into two. I got to school and you did row crew. And I I didn't actually did row crew. Oh, yeah. I'm I'm not smart enough to graduate from college. The fucking sleep away camp college fucking. And you're he'll go graduate from college. Graduate from college. You know? Sure. I I'm saying what you wanna make fun of you. You're in a sour mood today. What why didn't graduate from college? You're fucking idiot. I'm in book. Dumbest shit we've established this so moans asleep away camp for God's sake. It's a lot of a lot of students treated that way. I road crew. And I take offense people saying that they road crew when they didn't. I'm steve. Stolen valor. It is. I wrote a had no life was a loser. And growed crew for two and a half years. And now, you just everything else is the same. But you know, real crew. Maybe I am into sour mood. You are very into sour mood. All this. Texting me in Susser your furious about some some which I can't even explain what is happening. But you are insane. The way that you reacted you have you woke up with a bitter taste of your mouth. And it's been affecting your mood all day. I came away for 'em anchors right of everyone online to say this actually rain about this your being practically Mitch Mitch is hard to you know, what mitch's tolerate Mitch fuck. You. Don't listen to the fuck and show guys. I come here to commission. I don't come here to cause fights nothing makes me more upset than seeing you to fight. And I feel like I may be caused by throwing a monkey wrench into this whole. I brought you a gift today wider. Wait, what did you? It's right there. Oh, you brought me a packet of in and out spread. Yes. Yeah. Thanks. It's right there under a pile of. Yes. Thanks. What did Astle? So. This is I out spreads. Eat right now. Then I'm not gonna fucking shoot lis-. No smeared on your phone and eat it. Mitch's angry all the time. Fuck you you. Listen. Jay Leno listens to though, boys. That's right. Giving you Tangs out with. You may close it would you guys consider just consider having Jay Leno onto review the Oscar Mayer wiener car both worlds. Both sides of that good. If you could drive it over here. And then we could see Mitchell eat it. Oh, I'm Craig maybe fuck it. Give me shit all the time. It's not easy to it's not easy to get podcast to play in my model. I like that old time fire truck, you got Jay. You would think it'd be easy? He would just get a job own because. Does that look in the mirror and get that idea? Can we add it on this self edited? I mean, if be conscious of your at its you can tell them to you sung after j is sensitive about Josh stuff. He doesn't his chin. It's not a job thing. Jim we ended on us Ed of his out. So he's writing it down the other option if you're comfortable with them going into the finals. So I don't think anyone should be. If I suppose there's one more loser. Last kitchen not today that's going to be recorded. We've got I mean, we've got two more those if feels more fair than the audience could get and kind of through the side door to the loser bracket. But either way I think those two chains have been elected. And also, my stupid ideas funny and the audience get a chance to vote and see what they want. I want the stupid idea to happen. Yeah. I wanna I wanna I mean, I'd like to try that. So should that be at a double or should that be at the live show? I think we gotta move tickets on this live show. Yeah. It's where we do. Yeah. We're at like ten soul. Wherein win is. And maybe get the word out. We haven't. Yeah. I mean, it's here is a thing. Apart apartment. No, I'm gonna fuck and fight every fan that comes. Every Crin that come. I'm gonna fight every Cran that comes. Sounds like a hunger. Kindergartener, but but that's Douglas.

Hey, you know, speaking audience polls, I was getting into this earlier when we when we you for that there. We did a poll because last last week on rap Assad with with Tony Charlotte. That's right.

Very very a busy location was the closest one to your those who. No, it's actually just like a mile or so from next place. Or five one of the biggest the busiest freeways there is. Anyway. So that was that was a whole ordeal. Yeah. It was there. I was there before I gave myself thirty minutes to get the food and then break and ended up taking almost entire time for the food even be made. So man, I was so officiant I was early. Actually, we're court at your place, and you had to get Taco Bell. Hayward was pissed you weren't here. Okay. 'cause I was really Kirsty up and down. But hearing this explanation. Cents. I will take you picking me up the food wider choice. I got a text from it. If I want to do the show and said you have to. I did not say that. Well, there was very little information. I to draw the formation how do you what do you do anything tomorrow? What? Was yes that you're doing anything at all. I wouldn't bother you with the podcast. Now. I think you got to go to someone say are you doing I want you to be on the pike? Because if I was busy with going to the store rain, I could do that some other. That's true. It depends.

So I and people may see this in the show photo of a small wound. It's mostly healed up. Yeah. Yeah. On the bridge of my nose. But it's kinda it's kinda scabby and gross. Looking. Say that again. The surrounding skin structure around the scab is pretty gross. A little Jim mishap. That have Nick myself. I was doing that. I think a regular shake weight. Naturally going into master Oreo. We bring the way to the shower. I told you leave the late to the weight room. You're not supposed to be the logger as bringing a barbell down.

Evan Susser on the show, but I was staring at the ground old. Should look up. I'm curious because we're talking Mexican food. And I know you're a, you know, somebody who lives out here, but but originally from the east coast, and man, what is where does Mexican food rank in terms of your your favorite eats? Well, first of all growing up a Taco Bell was like my sort of Mexican food go, right? And when you in the intro said restaurant ferring to Taco Bell. That's the funniest thing. Like when people talk say McDonald's Ray about restaurant is very funny to me. Should hear it from Mitch you said that you say, what do you say about Taco Bell? That's my favorite restaurant favorite restaurant. Just period. Wow. I. Restaurant. Here's the Tri force fast food say right now, McDonald's Wendy's Taco Bell. I think a lot of people have issues with Wendy's burger joints in there. You get to burger joints in there. Wendy's is by chicken. Well, what else what other? So you're saying I, yeah, it it depends on how you see him. Hashtag is up there for me for the fast food. I love are. Yeah. Is this off fast food drive force? Yeah. Let's see. What people? What's what's what's what's what's the top three? We were doing mount lake mount Rushmore is for awhile. But maybe maybe we'll move onto try forces. Maybe that's the new system the big three the big three. Wendy. I mean, Wendy's quality has gone back and forth. Just really love. I mean, I have a soft spot in my heart. We're saying it's personal. It's a personal thing for each of us where each designating which is our try force of wisdom, which is our Tryphosa power. Which is our what's the third one is courage. Try force. What's coming is?

I was just gonna say like, I, and and you know, it's ninety grill or something frequently discussed on here as much as I love McDonald's. I might say Popeye. This is insane. Oh, you're try force is insane. I think it's pretty reasonable didn't include McDonald's, but I got one burger joint in there. I love with Donald noses fantastic. I have McDonalds is a is a twice a month. Minimum place for me. You know, speaking of of a. We we gave you a gift of say, you know, edit this part out. At one point. We gave you breath of the wild.

Putting all the pieces together, you're lost your. I'm sorry. You're saying you're playing red red dead. I loved red one I was considering buying the PS four for red dead too. But that's asking for trouble. Yeah. And time I would say like if you're gonna get a system, and you're a casual gamer, I think the switches the way to go switch switch does thing is you don't have red dead redemption to right now. But maybe it'll get a port. Eventually, it seems to be getting most of these games. But either way it's just like it's got so many great pickup play games. And you can take it on the go. I sounds like branded content for switch which again, we wish we could have it into switch out on there. You saw I got great news for you next week instead of getting paid you'll get let's Zelda tip book of the wild. If we can find it used a Game Boy and also that will be your pay for next week.

That was my Pola experience because I went to the Kito moss. I thought it was that one. But it wasn't very went to the potato moss in Westwood. So Katie moss in Westwood. And I also went to the Taco Bell in Santa Monica. I was listening can you repeat that? So what happened is they had in my notes that I went to the bookie Tomas in Santa Monica, but that used to be that's what you pulled lay. But obviously that's impossible to eat their choke Poland. And that would be a bad name for that restaurant. Yeah. Chokepoint joke. Pola watch the stocks dip. Yeah. Hard to pronounce doesn't evoke anything in particular makes coking Vokes Vokes choking associated with a foodstuff very close to death. Yeah. Have you ever heard of children?

And so my my Mexican food. I guess exposures been big out here. Right. Yeah. It's pretty high up there in my usual eating. Yeah. And I I mean like I mentioned before that it's probably my favorite food. I just love it. But so Tomasa talk you've had you used to live by that book. You your mouse was the first restaurant. I was I ever went to hear. Wow. All the way back in when we came out here for some internships. This where we went I. Yeah. That's crazy. Yeah. It's really tied up with your Ellie identity. Hey, we can talk about this little bit you. And I I mean when when we worked at the we would meet at the birthday boy's house almost every night of the week at one point. And then we especially would meet on Sundays. But Makino Maas would have had a big part of it was a mainstay. It was a huge mainstone. Yeah. Me when Jeff Dutton run on there and grab stuff. I would do a plate usually one of those taco plates. And Jeff was a burrito guy. You would you get I I was a burrito guys a real guy on that. I just wanted to. Out on those chips chips or something else there. And if I was real if I'm really hungry, which which Turnham it just is. I would do a burrito mini taco. I'm gonna stay Nick Nick thinks is cool. Do you know of this? All right. I've seen this online a lot. He's a cool dude people. Yeah. Jumping on the sloppy boys. Say they're doing a lot. And I was like you really. He's got that energy. But I think it's coming off people are using it off of nobody's got a cool guy. A cool guy. I can tell you that. It's not that cool. We're the cooling. We can call cool. But I mean, we can't come. I mean, Hafer Nyerere cool runs. Right. I think so. Well, so easy. Dave Tipper, pretty cool. Yeah. Cool hartsdale in school cools. Everyone's out cool. Everyone's cool their own way. So that's and that's not just for the birthday boys in this this for your listeners. Oh, that's like a sort of a valuable thing to take a hard. How about that? There's some people that are not cool. Escalates dinners. Cool. I bet. The listeners on the equator. The, you know, there might be a point with with climate change where the equator is basically there's basically an uninhabitable. Like fire belt around the where they would just be like like zone where you just couldn't even go outside bring marshmallows, man. Content from this Moore's company. Nick is reading uninhabitable earth right now. Yeah. I finished it. It's great sundered over to me. I have it on kindle. All right. My kindle. Batted around by your cats. Lie. There can't be if I had a physical copy, I would happily lend it to you. I think people should read the cats batting around something else after the after these new catnip toys, they got they're gonna think you're there's there's catnip inside your Johnson. What you're thinking? Smile. I words are too small Jesus. So boogie mouse. I love Taco Bell. I love in different ways. They're doing different things. This is an interesting mismatch. This is this is this is two different sides of the coin. Yeah. Places. I'm gonna tell you right now. Both these places really have my heart. Yeah. This is a tough episode for me get I mean, hey, this might be the sort of this. This debate the struggle inside, your heart. Be the sort of thing you want to write your top one hundred song about. Awesome. Tackle. Yeah. You get these two chains love and babies. Maybe you were thinking I was our today. Maybe this is maybe the sourness was about the sour cream. It was. Right. That was what I was. Said about about this matchup, and how long to eliminate one of my two favorites you set this up in this way. So that it would happen in the sermon. I saw the breakdown was chip Kelly is now as of this recording is in the loser's bracket, it's down. It's down to kitchen. Chipotle e-last to Cuba. Yeah. That was I never heard of Kuda. Yeah. Cuba, a chain like MOS? That's that's pretty pretty well known very, well it's owned by Hubert. Oh, yeah. The square burrito. You have to jump around on it. Yeah. It's too much work. Yeah. The menus just like asterisks and question marks. It's like just a bunch of gibberish wing is chasing, you around coil ones in on the action. Josh Gaddis is the one little green blobs knew the names of them. Wait, who's the who's the I think you're Hamer? Knows q-bert hand. There's Josh Gad is always going in there. Checking on his spouse. Now, then I do not get. You should check out pixels. Flex Cuban Bank souls. And has we're babies. Yeah. Yeah. Aaa as you'll remember my first time on the show. And that was that's one of my face very early on in the we we all raved about it. We had a wonderful experience and japodlay has I think declined a little bit since those heading as interesting fifteen I viewed it you out here to get the archives out and see what I ranked them. I think probably high. We are played. I think it was the inaugural member of the platinum plate club five four high. We were on. I don't think I was involved in the I like that. I think I think you might revisit man. I it was very like the early dope boys are like it's like season one Simpson's where it's like, our dynamics a little different. It's a little bit more muted. We're kind of we're kind of talking why? And so I think like the platinum play club would not be the sort of thing that would have the same sort of splendor that it has. Now, are you? Okay. So you're saying, oh, boy, I'm gonna give five forks boy, they cheap show. Hey homa. Hey marge. Did Lisa whole work. Mo MO MO is always like just like checking it on their own task like domestic questions. Hey scorpion. What are you doing here? You don't show up until season six. Yeah. That was a weird plot point in season. One simpson. Yeah. Yeah. This is weird. I'm here. I'm here to me. Peter griffin. No, that's where MacFarlane got the idea. He said I will put my famous soon to be famous Peter Griffin in the Simpsons. I'll do my own show. That we used to bond over we would watch family the first three seasons. Count in college. We'd hang out together. There was at Taco Bell. There. Did we talk about it? And I'm probably thinking to somebody else. I think it doesn't. And if you're not thinking about else, I made some big mistakes. Do you know, Gino? Why story the first time I met done you'll like this Nick, I was in editing, suite at the college, very cool, and I had shot a film. I shot a short film on a bowl x camera. You had to have talked about this on the. Yeah. If I did talk about it. I'll maybe I did and Dutton was in there. And I was like, and I had never really talked to done before. Yeah. And I was like, hey, hey, can you help me out? I have a film project tomorrow. He's like, yeah. What's up? And I was like, how'd you edit? Walk me through how to at it. I have like I like either slept through got drunk and slept through our lazily, skipped the class on like how like like the two classes on how you add it. You don't have to explain to us how you were unprepared. Together. And I made a great film hampered saw. Yeah. I've seen it. It was a it was a good movie Haberman. A great. Yeah. It was a great film. Great piece of cinematic is. Oscar bed. No, it was it was up for an Oscar the grouchy in the garbage. That's what they should call the Razzies. Pretty good, and that's Britain material. I doubt right that I've other stuff I want to get to flash didn't rewrite right? That for I did work. I'm not like with these fucking bullshit people who got their kids into college. I got it on my fucking on merit, Nick. I know the ones accused me of this earlier today. I was we were having fun. Oh, we were. This is just cracking wise. We're just like you can give it each other. We're revenue the Dobos truth IRS are gonna think that's real. Just like, look if you're running the dope boys Wikipedia include a note that Mitch got into college on his own merits is their divorce we competed. I think so tell everyone think I'm smart and funny. I think you are smart and funny, more or less your more Europe. You're extremely funny, man. I think you're smart. I think you you maybe sometimes are a little fuck you. Let me say this this. I'm not trying to backhanded compliment. I think you sometimes maybe I think in the context of something like this. You'll maybe play up your doofus tendencies and your conscious of of doing that. But also at times, you're also unconscious of that. Which is like in your show Mitch live where you really are kind of like unprepared, and you kind of our disarming how just like Ernest. You can be you know, what I mean? Like like like like, I think you are a smart, man. I don't think you're an idiot. Mitch no come from behind closed doors. He a stooped. Yeah. It's very calculating. Very smart Sinophile. Out of the house. He's gotta put out in the Mitch mask. Yeah. Yeah. You know? You know, it's a real face the metaphorical masks. We all we're we're here. We're hearing his apartment and the Mike are off. And he's like, my just rented new non fiction anthology and the Mike come on, dude. I can't was at around the dick. Is that a is that a lie? Did you make that up just to say that? That's oh. I was helped you. I've been on who's not expect. They'll be real not real people are going to bed at improv. Jennif- provides. Well, I've wasted my life. At improv like you have you might as well pretend. I'm good at it. What else? What else am I gonna do? Should we do in herald opening right now? Are. Tortilla. I can't believe that. I asked you to say, I'm smart and funny. And then of course, you maybe look like a buck in dope. Once again, you're smart and funny. You absolutely smart and funny guy, you're you're under naively funny guy doesn't really goes on chiming in on that doesn't mean much dumb shit. Like you. What'd you have to do that? What if I just if we're sort of hovered over microphones looking at just you take a of look back and look at what it's a what Wednesday afternoon. That's right. Why porn is? Just it's just a funny situation ate tacos burritos. It's it's an interesting what the world of media is raise. It's just very interesting. I know I know what we're upset about every time Susser visits the damn show. This always happen. Yeah. We get riled up its fault. Yeah. It's definitely is fault. He had a cool outfit on today. Yeah. Healing black a fistfight sweatshirt on. I like that. You sound looks great to here's gussied up for his charity event. Jesus. He was a suit wearing a suit. I'm not in a sour mood. I'm like sour patch kid. I got us a little I got a sweet side, right? Under that sour, right. That's right. I'm nice to people mic. I go out and have drinks with people for God's sakes. All right. So let's get back into it. Yeah. So poky Tomas will start there. Here's what I got. I got the fish tacos. I just got one of them, which is a it's a corn tortilla with corona batter to Loppy a- onion, salon tro cabbage and a red bet red bell pepper sour cream, which is like this sort of creamy sauce drizzle on top of it. And they also got the shrimp burrito. Sanfilippo which is pan seared shrimp with melted Jackie's rice, salon show onion, fresh salsa and fresh guacamole chips and salsa use the salsa Verde the green one Andy Rojo, which is the spiciest read one the one that that Mike us insult me about an any fun way. What do you say it tastes like battery acid batteries nattery? That's good. So. Tallec is battery. Man, that's a great album master puppets. Yeah. Your you're your big Metallica? I think I'd say I think if I'd rank the kind of the core four, I think I would go bands albums. I would say I think I think honestly, my favorite my favorite is and Justice for all. And then I'd go doing for a metallic gal. Then they may go, right, citing master puppets and kill them. All if you want include the blackout in there, which. Some people do some people don't, but I kind of like their their peak is kind of like that run. I would say the blackout would maybe slot in third or fourth there. I like it a little bit more. The blackout put him on the map. It is. That was their breakthrough hit a bunch of like videos, and that one's the one with you, enter Sandman. And nothing else matters. Don't tread on me whole bunch a whole bunch of radio hits on that way. Right. I like, I think it's called the one. Oh, one is great. Yeah. That's that's one of the tracks on imprisoning Justice. See what about skiing nudge? I roll. I know it's a cover. But it's I like whiskey in a jar. I do like it. Right. Maybe I think was because they did cover. Our old. I think that's like there's an old Irish maybe thin Lizzy did it as well. Maybe not even Lizzy. Fat Lizzy some dough don't Mitch thing later on this month, wouldn't they say? I'm not gonna say say that Michi. Hey, you asked for it. I'll say the to lobby fish taco. I've had a lot of fish breaded fish tacos. And they went I went seafood with this book Tomas visit because that's what they that's their bread and butter. That's like what would they were founded on the whole concept is based around seafood, seafood based tacos and burritos. Makino moss moss. Yeah. What that's your core. If you look at their menu like the the land based proteins are almost like just like an add-on there like an appendix, I've never felt this way ever menu. If you look at everything that has some sort of detailed like sort of elaborate description to it. It's all the food items. This is never felt this way ever. Yeah. But it's it's it's it's origin. It's how it was founded. There's a seafood place. Yeah. Those the Baja California. Approach to food so or food that's popular there. So I went seafood the top fish taco. Again. I mentioned have had a lot of breaded fish tacos, this one I think was pretty disappointing. And I think the I don't I expect them to have good product. I think the two lobby is probably a good piece of fish. But it tasted kind of it didn't taste great. It tasted kind of like dingy and dirty, and like it'd kind of been I don't know if it was like an old piece or just a bad piece or what? But it wasn't. It wasn't a great piece of the breading was not as crisp as I would have liked and the the red red bell pepper sour cream. I thought just kind of under delivered as those Krems go there's sort of creamy sauces like gimme the one at Rubio's any day, much better execution. That's the ship reader San Felipe, pay was delicious and the texture of the pants shrimp. Was so great and works, you mixing seafood and dairy a lot of times, it doesn't work, but here with the Jack cheese, absolutely clicked right amount. Right. Proportion of. Rice and guac in there. Just everybody was delightful. Great great texture on that tortilla that was Chris up on the flattop grill. Chimp rado Samphan bay was one of the best things eaten this month. Absolutely, delicious and the chips and sauce. I've said pizza a hand for your cookie dough Ma have you have you seen that movie criminal versus Chroma about those two Brita sauces that are fighting over the custody there. Yeah. I have seen that. The issue is is that it's it's very similar to Kramer versus Kramer, which is right much better movie. As soon as you like from the opening like seeing this is just what you like. Yes. It's like a parody version of a lawyer would have field day here. Right. First of all, I need to go back to the fed MSCI thing, I take that back. Wow. That was you know, I sometimes having fun. But sometimes I forget, there's people listening, and that's fun fun fun. But that's that's not that's me. Wow. Nick. I'd also like to go back to that comment. That Hanford beta say that I said. No, I I've been called out for body shaming you. And I just I probably. Yeah. It is probably better. I should do. You know? I thought we were talking about my order. Yes. No, don't let them finish this. He's done. What was I going to say I have to say about Mukta metallica's discography dryly break break breakdown their albums a little bit more. Gonna be another Kramer versus Kramer joke. Hammett verse Hamid. Of course, Kirk Hammett leotards lead guitar rhythm. Yeah. Usually qatar. Come out with Newman versus Newman. Yeah. Chris that would be a good Kramer versus Kramer, would be a good documentary about casting. The last two guys here Hollywood. All right here we go on. I had you have written down. What I got Nick. I've got my phone. So texted it to me. So I got it right here. So I got the shrimp taco son Lucas and for the burrito got the. Chilly. Spelled this wrong. Chilly chilly. Yeah. Now, I like them both. I never gotten these items before I usually just get the the like I said before the plates or just a chicken taco or taco Brita. Excuse me right into the microphone. This was the shrimp was good. It was like a shrimp something very spicy shrimp with some cheese on it. What do you think that would be? It's just not. Thought it might be a good Tia. Yeah. It was it was really good. And it was it was nice and spicy. And I just put the PICO to guy on top of it, which I like there. I think they do all their sauces are good. But I I used to be a big fan of the Brown. Also, which I forget what that's called excuse me, telling you, I do you want to do another beverage going to get you something to drink? Yeah. I'll take another one of these. Okay. I'm gonna go try to get one of those. I'll still speak to your microphones if you're sitting here. Okay. Great. I can't do it. I can't pretend. I thought it was good. It was like I said. Yes, spicy now. The burrito was it had some rice in it. These peppers was really good. It kind of had some heat to it some beans what with the chicken. And it was I did salsa list on this because I wanted to get just the taste of it. It was not huge for me. I thought it can use. I thought it could use a cream in there or boy, more cheese or something or cheese at all. I don't think she's at all. Just kinda was like. Yeah. Meeting this thing. Right. Got Tampa tomorrow. That's a bummer. Miss. Your your your poquito experience drinking? Well, I went with the Quincy boys scoop for about Mike, the only ones left at this point, the others were just gradually leaving people. They the other ones trying to sell to death. Today's Mike is his birthday happy birthday. And the day. We went was Jenkins birthday. Oh, he was gone though. We we were e rustic eating wings. And he and he was like, I got my flight chained voice. And we're like what is it was like he was sitting US eating wings and his flight was like like fifty minutes away. She's crying in Burbank. But still it was insane. Yeah. That's that's that's crazy. I would offer the airport. Some people fear the airport and some people treat it like. I'm just getting my car and getting out of here. Now, we stop for any. There wasn't a line last time. So there won't be leading this them seasons. Don't fear the airport. God, I'm so pissed. I did that. Not the only one. So the boys, and I were all there together hanging out. And. The I got myself a steak burrito. Got a chicken burrito. Last time stuff over the classic the classic style. Not the potato burrito. The full on classic steak burrito. It was great. Yes. I don't normally get the state burrito. I'll get the chicken breed. I'll just because you shouldn't eat try not to eat red meat chicken and said, I shouldn't be burritos anyways. But but man that burrito is fucking. It's great. They breed as our great. Those are great like like sometimes it is a place where the quality goes up and down. But it's because it's fresh place. Yeah. I I was just there with a chicken burrito. And it was like loose. It was like full tighter Moammar it can happen. I say I think they have like it's like ninety percent hit rate. There's a ten percent like one out of ten times, you're gonna go and you're gonna get like the Breda wasn't as good the meat isn't as like not fan rat. It's. Yeah. Get a whole rat. It's not it's not bad. But even it's a funny thing because even the sauces can be like you go in there by this house's fucking fantastic. And then you go in there another time. We were like, oh, they didn't. They didn't make the salsas. Well, this time it can be watery or whatever. But, but it just is a place where they are making everything they make the tortillas they make everything. So you appreciate that. And it's just it's just it's such a good breeder. I mean, I'm not giving anything away. But like it's one of the best burritos one of the best chain in quotes. Yeah. Does that you can that you can get a chain for my taco. I did a he he fish taco. Which was nice. You know, what all went with this food? We all of this. Doc. I. The last time Nick we when we went with Dan to Petito. Yes, we got the shrimp taco, and it was not it was it was not great. And so I went for another seafood taco. I wanted to try fish taco there. It comes with a little thing of like salad or like lettuce. I'm sorry. Let us in like PICO to guy on top of the lettuce. Garnishes weird that it comes it. Yours had it to Hanford a little it's almost like a side salad. But I think it's like fixings that you could throw on your. It's almost like you go to a diner, and they give you like your they give you like lettuce and tomato and onion on the side of your burger. It's like it's kind of like that sort of situation, and I put some of the of the guy on there. And I squeeze some lime onto the tuna fish taco there's kind of like a cabbage in there. And then like this like Chipotle sauce. Yes. On top of it was good. It was good. It was a it was a good taco. It's better there. Tacos. I I mean like it is a place that has good pro team. But I always just help people get Britos when they go there there. Tacos are good. But it's not like I'm going to go there to get a taco. They they they they come on corn tortillas. I think by default, but you can order flour tortillas leave some of some I think do come on on flower. I think I think maybe he gonna take a look at it, actually. But there either way they're freshly made I'd like their corn tortillas. Good quality. I just think gimme a second corn tortilla underneath thing. They give you they give you the one tortilla. I'd I'd like that Tucker style at backup toward corn tortilla for purposes, they can through this was on a flour tortilla, by the way, and people got mad at me. I like corn tortillas too. I just I like flour tortillas. Ben mad at you. Stop reading the subway gonna stop reading stop reading. I need to stop reading. What's this door this year? No, more reading. All right. You know, what if this is accomplished as you getting riled up about online comet said fine. No reading. But this this was good. The fish was cooked a little a little over. But I'd rather that than the the opposite wasn't really fallen apart or moist as much as I'd want it to be. But it was still it was still a tasty taco. They did a better job than they used to do. I don't I think that the protein here is good. But the tacos, very basic. Yes. And I think if you get like a mini steak taco or mini chicken taco with your burrito or something like that. I think it's think it's worth it. But I don't think they they're tacos are like out of this world. Yeah. For that does fresh make their tortillas. It would be nice. If they're if they're tacos where a little bit better. But I think just their their Caissoti is their burritos their plates like like Hanford mentioned or just a little bit a little bit better all around and and to be completely to get my complete review out there. I also had a Pepsi from the soda fountain. And I also did chips and salsa which again drinks during the Gatorade jug on the sidelines. But also hampered you can say chips. Well, we'll get to it in a minute. Yes. So Taco Bell. I got one seasonal item and one item. That's a little bit more of an established part of their menu at this steak rattlesnake fries. Berina California's I almost got this season fries. Netra cheese sauce steak spicy creamy jalapeno sauces slice jalapenos rolled up into flour tortilla book. I want it bad. It was good. It was very good. What I'll say is that the I would've liked just cheese over that Nacho cheese sauce. I think it sort of gave it like this. The jewiness was nice the moisture was nice, but you're doing I'm guy we so soft and chewy like it. You mean the cheese instead of I would've liked as in lieu of this Nacho cheese sauce. I would've liked just like shredded cheese over like top. That would have been excessive cheese on top of cheese. No, I'm not talking about some sort of Deir food. I'm talking about this just like being like having a different execution. It's one of those ones that purports to be spicy. It doesn't actually spicy. Like I had to throw some of that Diaz and that fire sauce on there. Also, I don't you talked about the flavor of the the salsa robot. Kita moss or Mike is did. I don't love the flavor of the blow sauce, even though it's their spiciest won the fire sauces. Better flavor viruses is is I do mild mild. But they're fires is good. The fires fires game was hampered. We'll we'll we'll get to you in a second. But you have some thoughts on the packets. I know. Yeah. I went to discuss the back. Allison. Talk about the be on Twitter. So the yeah, the the I love that. I liked it a lot. I just thought that the cheese was kind of like an element that didn't really work as well. The fries were actually nice in there at the stake seem decent quality, the tortilla. The Taco Bell tortillas. Are are not great. But it got the job done in the state. Welcome bows. And it was a good portion. I was fired thereto Torrijos loco. Fuck fiery Doritos locos taco soup cream. Those words are all plural. The so it's a little less natural for me to say if you say it properly seasoned ground beef cheese lettuce tomato reduced fat sour cream and fiery Doritos shell this is fucking delicious. I mean, just love it. So so so so good did just the Christmas of the shell the flavor of the that fiery Doritos powder. That's on there to sour cream helps a lot just in terms of just giving this like some nice smoothness too tight altogether. I've never done one before. It's fucking great. I loved it. I thought it was absolutely delicious. Just just a home run Hanford. Your talk about experience. The I saw the fire dorito on the menu online when I was texting Mitch to pick it up for me. I saw pictures of this thing and it looked insane. It's it's like a neon bright red. It's like candy, apple red. And I love those flavors like chips, or whatever. Yeah. But yeah, thing shocking. I got the. Finding on note. Are you do you like spicy foods you something heat seeker? I do. Yeah. I like spicy food go. It's like wing place or something. I'm not grant suiciders, right? Because I still want to joy, I haven't I can tell you. What are you looking for the taco or? Crunchy taco supreme pretty average. My usually my go-to there is like the whatever the cheapest tacos. Yeah. And just loaded up on with hot sauce. It's one of the cheapest taco. Seventies. But I'll get like a lot of them right enough. Because I think that food to me gone off the simple menu. It's all just variations on the classic. I got you thing. I don't know. And the thing is I like the source of the best those are the hot sauces salsa the hot sauce, the best of anything. You don't like mild. I like mild hot probably more. But that's pretty classic. I wanted to step it up a little bit raise. It's not worth it. I don't think. Wow thing. He didn't think the sour cream was worth the sour cream, and the tomato is like doesn't need to be. I'll tell you. I love that Taco Bell sour cream. I like it a lot. It's very it's just very I do too. But I thought it was great. And I got my Ryozo say when God I like that too. For my burrito. I got a PD. Beefy Fritos burrito. And that was good. I never had that before the Fritos inside. They're not necessary. They don't need to be there. The rice in. There was good. But the frito is just like. No. That's my lawn mower. You brought your lawnmower running. It's like a roomba. Lawnmower. Dangerous. Very dangerous. It is lated robot. Roaming in the neighborhood where children are playing. So yeah, the frito burrito was good. It's funny enough you found the Fritos necessary when that sounds like the whole reason for its existence. I wanted I wanted to try something there. But yeah, oh, you must have some long grass on your door. Yeah. You've been growing that you've been growing hay out there. They're really loud. He's he's he's right on top of us. I think I think the. To what? Okay. He doesn't like the podcast and wants to know he wants to hear. He's not doing a service. Wait, where are you done? I don't know my daughter we continue. Why did you did you do? You wanna talk about those packets? The hot sauce packets. I don't like these little messages on. Oh, yeah. You've probably talked about this when you do this. But it's a secret makes me happy. Yeah. First of all dot dot dot, what is this? They're just having fun. It's going on venture. I get that picture. My packets today. Did they have any fun? I didn't take a picture right back. I don't remember what they were. I did order kiosk in store which was a lot of fun downs. The other day. Mcdonald's was going to tell you guys a picture of it. But I forgot. But a the doughnut sticks. Have you had those oh Donut sticks. Oh, yeah. I don't think they're at every McDonald? They're good. Wow. Kinda like Charles. Oh, by the way, also order chips and sauce over Taco Bell. And I thought it was fine interest. Like, I don't love their the salsa. They give you would rather. Have that Nacho cheese? Yeah. They're not. They're not Joe cheeses that Nacho cheese. It's like fake love it. It's it's good. And I do love it. And I didn't work better in that steak burrito. Mitch your Taco Bell order. I went to. To the Universal City. Walk Taco Bell city walk weight. Yes. No. I went to the Universal City walk. There's a restaurant called city walk. I got confused. I wanted to Universal City walk Taco Bell. I did w AL versus. I did. Yeah. I wanted to Universal City. Walk Taco Bell. I there's a city walk next to Taco Bell too. Which makes it confusing. Just got confused by myself. There's a city walk at city walk. There's a city walk next to city walk for noses. Yeah. It's on the it's not in within the not. I don't think it is down on Kalinga. Yeah. It's like an Abbott and Costello routine. I thought we're gonna get city walk. I'm at city why I said city walk. I'm right there. The golden age of comedy. I want to I brought I brought some of the Quincy guys city walk. This is like a hung over day. We before we went to the Celtics game who got stopped by the clippers by the way, which was a bummer, but. We can get what we had. We had. We had. I know. They're looking good. God we had we got a sweet. And there were people in our C. And there was a group of people who had standing room only sitting in our seats. Wow. And we never the Quincy guys didn't care. They just sat in the back. I wanna throw my people invading your sweet. Yeah. That you paid. There was different people in the suite. Yeah. Just went in there fucking clippers game that wasn't. That's shit wouldn't happen at the Lakers game in my right? I mean, I can't imagine being able to force weeded the Lakers to somebody be your Quincy guys. These are. These are roughnecks are rough and tumble. Guys. Didn't wanna start a you? What they want an excuse to start a fight with strangers. No, they're not evil people who start fights. I didn't think they were evil. I'm just saying they're like the good will hunting guys come Mike is did throw one out of the suite. Okay. The wrong the window. Anyways. And Blake riffing is visit driven six foot. Oh that was difficult to get out. We already more. For some time. We were we were at city walk not a great place to even bring people. So I the Quincy guys we were out of things city walk. I was saying this to you earlier, but I'll share it with the fans listeners not all fans. It's a fun place to go. If the person knows this isn't a tourist destination just of mall, rain side. And there's a King Kong there. So that's fine. Shut up and look at it public Gump is that the people confuse me. I no it wasn't. But anyway. And I agree with it. We went to at the city walk Taco Bell. We had we had eaten Gua Sato surly on the day. So the guys were pretty much. They were they were pretty they were pretty gross out that I actually was having anything else to eat local Mexican taco shop delightful. It's it's one of the best. So I got myself cool ranch Doritos locos taco supreme. And I also got myself something I've never got before. Nick, never ordered this at Taco Bell other ever a cheesy bean and rice burrito. No meat. No, meet interesting because people are saying, hey, Mitch, you love Taco Bell. You're going did. So I want something I never had before. No meat in this thing. I buy into nervous because this is at the city walk Taco Bell. Yes. Could be bad. Yes. The service was great the guys, they're they're super helpful. Nice. I I get over to the I put it on the table to Quincy guys rarely go, and I opened up I take a bite into this thing. It was fucking perfect. They really they really like it was hot. It was like it was like if they were like Taco Bell, the company was there, and this is like Taco Bell headquarters, and they wanted and they were testing these things it was like perfectly done cool ranch. Doritos taco supreme. It was like just knocked it out of the park. So I was like I took about it. And I was like this is so fucking in the in the Quincy guys like like, why are you acting this way over Taco Bell? And I was like it really was. So they really fucking nailed it. And then I took a bite of that cheesy rice burrito. And. And it was also fucking awesome. I've never had it before. It's was fucking great. They do a good bean-and-cheese there a meatless option. I had some mild packets. I toss him mild sauce on there. It was. It was really it was fantastic. I mean, look if not Taco Bell also knocks out of the park, which say do a lot of the time at the food is hot and fresh to. And it's it's just far and also under it was it was I mean, different from Gaza. Does obviously this spectrum the end of the spectrum away from Gaza does. But just fantastic, Nick. Yes. It was great. Yeah. I I don't know what to say. Because I also think that taco bells burritos are like I do a lot of like the like the the Nacho brio. And then what what is it called not the not chicken, not the rollers out here? Like, the one that has like the chicken loaded griller or something I think. I think the low to grill is, but they're Reto debris. No game. Is like, okay. Like, the case aradio case Reto, or whatever I am always up and down on their burritos. I like their other stuff more, I feel well, I think part of that is that flour tortillas, not great. And that can that can be a detriment to those. They do very solid bean-and-cheese there anyways. It was fantastic and full transparency. Could be completely transparent Hanford when I picked up your today. I got myself diet mountain dew and also got myself, a what is it called the cheesy roll up? Yes. Which I never had before. I had been eaten today is the issue. And and that was fantastic to it was really great. I never had the cheesy roll up. Tell me my food had been fall. No, no, no, no, no. It was delivered by me. It was fresh. But the cheesy roll up was great to Nick. So so this is this is this is zero that is what it's called. Yes. This this is tough. This is a it's tough. This is I'm gonna my heart's gonna be broken. No matter what it's real real Sophie's choice here. Now, let me let me ask you something we go in based on just what we got this time. Yes. Wow. Yeah. That's judging it so and the way our judging system these choices nothing appeared to what we do right now. This is definitely worse than Sophie's choice. Also choice. This is a real salsas choice for the salsa chooses. You. Well, we're going to choose one of these to win and it's going to be progressing in the tournament. The other won't go down to the loser's bracket and fat chance kitchen we'll have a chance to possibly reemerge in the finale. We are judging from zero to ten ref stripes, white stripes, tacos, black stripes or burrito so zero to five in each category for a total of ten if you get all ten it's a perfect shirt and Hanford. So, yeah, we'll go through and give us your your your taco and burrito rating for each chain your rating for each chain. We'll start with a star with book to and about picking here. Okay. So. Each taco has a is worth five points. Yeah. The highest maximum stripes. Okay. All right. Let me do for for the taco at potato moss. Yes. I want to do three three white stripes, and how many how many stars for that burrito? She's two so three white stripes, two black stripes. Wow. Only five stripes. And now we're talking about for talk about. Okay, Taco Bell. I want to do for my burrito. I'm gonna do. I wanna talk to win. So I'm gonna give that one four. White stripes. Okay. Win on the end. I know, but I want this thing to in the taco that four to. Wow. Four for both of them. Only two stripes off of perfect shirt. Very good showing from Taco Bell for Mike Hanford, Mike Mitchell. Do you want me to go go? I'll let you this is your baby. Credit cards, and it's just making financial transaction while we're recording. All their I've learned not to inquire. What are the whatever doing something for the Dame show for God's sake? Poquito moss. Taco was underwhelming. It's still good. It's still good quality. But it just didn't love how all the components came together. And again, you know, maybe not the best piece of fish for this individual, outing, two and a half, white stripes. Neb Rita was delicious. It's so so good five black stripes. That was great. It was awesome. The Taco Bell. Tacos. I will say that fired euros locos taco is. It was so fucking good. I loved it at four and a half, white stripes. Well. The burrito also good not quite as good. I'm gonna say I'm gonna I'm gonna say to. I'm gonna say. I was maybe a little too to kind to it my valuation because honestly, I don't know if it's thing get against I'm gonna just say two black stripes for that burrito. Mike mitchell. Okay. For Keita moss. Yes. I'll do taco. I. I'm going to give them this is hard. Three and a quarter white stripe Lao? The meat is still really good burrito. Five black stripes. One hundred percent, I love it. Taco bell. Tacos. For the white stripes five white stripe. Wow. Nick. Does a cheesy Gordeeva crunch count for the future of the tournament? I need to know you mean under the taco component. Yes. I think you have to allow some flexibility with Taco Bell 'cause they're doing different thing. Yes. I think that qualifies. I mean what we can get official ruling from join get Susser vacuum. Can we call them back to the house, actually? We'll check with saucer. My feeling is that yes, it is allowed. Burrito tam. The burrito was really good. But I think that I think Akito has them beat Umbria doesn't gonna go four black stripes Lau, but close to a full shirt, Nick. We're. I mean, you wouldn't even notice what this shared on time. It's I mean, truly for both of them to to this looks like you're you're wearing a full shirts think it was a regular ref just out there. You would you'd have to wait for them to spin around. And maybe you'd notice that detail that one stripe was missing now, Nick. Yes. The golden whistle which is a ward into the place with the better, tortilla chips and salsa and SaaS options picky Tomas wins. My golden whistle as well. Yeah. It's easy Patino moss. Someone's no brainer. It's not that easy. Nick. The sauces better over at the bell. Wow. Counting that you're cutting the hot sauce packets. The hot sauce, which by the way, when we know about them so far is that you don't like them. Oh, no. I did not make myself clear. I hate the packaging. I love. What's inside Gonnet? Not unlike the two of you. I say with with Petito moss. Yes. That Asada the salsa which is the Brown salsa is so good. It's one of my favorite sauces, which is like a steak sauce. Yes. It's just such a good salsa. I usually just one of the chips. It's fantastic. And the the what's it called Verde? The of greenhouse greenhouse is is really great. And then a couple of the red ones are their their PICO guy to is just like good. It's golden whistle winter. No doubt. Yeah. That's an easy one for me. Is that is that enough to know? I honestly we're gonna find out we have to think of the golden whistle is separate and as its own thing. But yes, they definitely win that side tournament. But now it's time to decide which of these we'll progress possibly be fed to Bruce Vallance. So that he can spice up the host copy on the awards show. He is writing. Which one is possibly going to go down to Bruce the shark. Yeah. We're going we're going to find out right now fed fed to him out of Dennis Leary, smokey hands. He loves smoking. Cigarettes gay does love you have low smoking cigarettes from the ref. He's an asshole self-proclaimed proclaimed. That's. Call anyone? So we come from three. We'll countdown from three and say are we saying the loser? I forget what we'd you're saying the loser. We're saying the loser. Now now that we have a winning place. We can say the winner am I doing my yelling anything? Yes, you're saying either Taco Bell. Or or them? I wanted to say to you. I will say this just before we close up the ceremony. Yeah. These are two wildly different Mexican food places. Right. That is this is a tough one. Because what do you want out of your ex-king food ones, a restaurant ones a fast food place? I feel yes. So I think yeah. I think an end. Yeah. This was this chains both chains. I would say this is definitely one where I'm looking at where it's like, what are we doing here? Because this is there. So what are we trying to settle here? Because the they're so disparate one is so it's so much easier to have good quality product when your apart of one. You're just located in one city, and you have fewer than twenty locations versus the sprawling global empire. It's so much easier to control for quality when you do that. So I don't know. But yes, which is the ideal which one is the better taco and burrito from chain perspective, we will declare the winner of this other winner when we count down from three in three to one q. Doc bill. Wow. You say. Is a joke. But you know, I was gonna say, I know you're gonna say Taco Bell. Yeah. My heart is heavy Nick, it's tough. But I think as reflecting in this. And it was I was starting to get to this as monologue and their second ago. I don't know poquito moss even belongs of this tournament. I think that Susser had a point where maybe we should have included bows or Baja fresh bookie Tomas. It's great. And honestly, you know, even even that said like like, they had a very strong showing in and. I don't know. I mean, like, we're just judging a different thing. And I think Taco Bell just is better winner for this setting for this circumstance. But anyway, that was kinda loading it against the Keno moss for. What are you talking about? I don't like it. I love cookie Tomas. I like bookie Tomas better than what's in the loser's bracket. Right now is ask about teams playing different systems. Yes about right ones. Running the Princeton offense, and the others running the triangle off and ones made up over you. And it shouldn't even be in basketball tournament, but was asleep at the wheel. So we we've just given Bruce Vallance bunch of Taco Bell to help spice up his writing. Well, don't boys finale. Well, not yet. Right. I guess you're right. Ultimately win the roles of this. Fuck doesn't make sense. Oh, no. It's gonna win. We all know, it's winning. Okay. Well, hey that was this week's munch madness the tournament of champions mouth of the border. Now, it's time for a segment we've got a beverage report down your throat. It's drank or stank you song Cam doing something. Okay. Okay. Here we go on. Oh. Used to coffee bean, but it wasn't a match. Mornings at Dunkin. Now, I look back and laugh even know most got married to Pete's coffee. But today, I got me some grand days of our Janas, LA tastes. All right. So this. These are these are gonna hold on song. Then minor guy before you did show him that right? Yeah. I showed him you see Nick do this. You know, like every other week or see him singing embarrassing song barris himself, and you decided that you want to do the same thing. As Nick, this is definitely. Definitely making me feel like I've been a negative influence on your life. That's like I. You have a perverse sense of. What I'm man. Way more Zelda buddies on this should not be aspirated your own. Like more like more like miss if you want to be more like Mitch hashtag myth. Miss on your Qube. There's two variations of this drink one is care melon. Once cinnamon the person behind the counter, recommended the cinnamon. So that's what we that's how. It's cloud. Mock Jato official drink at Starbucks, and there's this Whiteson here. That's in the cloud a bit of lemon. It's wild. I have the menu description bold, Espresso cascades through light, fluffy layers of foam topped with drizzle of flavor. So just be aware be aware with when we assess this that if we displease Arianna Guerande, she is she is won't to drag people on Twitter. So we could we could get dragged guys. You saw this. This thing is a fucking stack. Wow. I will say what's in weird is held. It has like a citrusy quality to it. What is them, and you can taste lemon? Why does it have a lemon lemon and just throw everything in this fucking thing? You know, you give the wrong people of the ability to make drink. Tastes like fruity pebbles, almost it's rain. It's kind of it's like it's almost like a lemon meringue like it's like that's like trying to drink form. That's what it is. And it's got like coffee after. Yes. Stale coffee aftertaste it's almost like I would like this in in more of a an anon- coffee context. I think you can make a hot lemon based beverage work. But it being coffee is strange, quite limited. Yeah. Like a hot let classic hot lemonade. Yeah. Like a lemony t-. You're talking about is kind of. Yes. It makes a little more sense. Right. This is this is bucket wack. This is a stink right up. Yeah. Thank stank. You next. Hell. Yeah. Yeah. What else is there to say? I haven't had a coffee in probably about three months. Why is that? I got off you cut out caffeine. Yeah. Guy cut out caffeine. It was too much. How's that working for you find it was the first like three or four days of headaches morning, headaches and be like what? All right coughing where you like a like a Java addict. We like Java Java. You're always trying to get that. Joe? Hell, I guess you'd say that was wake up and you say John's pizza. Yeah, Java is that what that was. There was a mad TV character. What the hell was called. Oh, yeah. Right favorite. Yeah. It's something the stand the coffee, man. This is out of it. Let's go Pat Kilbane. My pile counts of area, a very good actor, a lovely, man. Zara world Kramer. Are you speaking of which he's Feldman? That's right. Oh, gotcha. Yeah. This was what am I talking about being off coffee? It's fine. It's okay. You get through it. And you don't need, but how much coffee were having. I was like three cups morning. Wow. Some more out of like Borges. I'll do I like I'd say three cups in a day is me. I two cups in the morning. And then you do one pick me up in the afternoon and feel relying on it. Yeah. I wake up after coffee spent shut down for the day. Dunkin donuts. Starbucks, your famously not a coffee guy, you don't like coffee. I'll drink it. Every so often, but I don't like it gives me it gives me anxious. I gotcha. Stank you next couldn't have been you can't say, yeah. Then that gives us a stank you next as well. The stinks. Yeah. I also give it a stank you next drinker stinks. Why don't you area? I'm sure she's listening right now in pissed off man her and bill's area and just listening. That was drinker stink. Just like a restaurant. We value feedback. Let's open to the feedback. Hey, we have a voice mail today. Hey, guys. This is Dan from Colorado big fan of the show lately. When my friends, and I go out to dinner instead of getting entrees a piece we've taken to getting a bunch of appetizers and just splitting them. So that made me naturally wonder what is the best appetizer to eat as an entree, and I will not count wings as an appetizer. Wigs aren't entree my opinion. Thank you guys. Hear the question asked thicker? Wow, great. I love this question from Dan from Colorado bills area. It was Dan bills area. And yeah listener. Sounds different on on the voice mail. The I think this is a really good question. You know, the wings taken wings out of there. I think is fair because that oftentimes appears on on atmospheres trash, this is comes before wings wings nap. I didn't they they qualify his nap. But this makes the question I think a little bit more intriguing because that's kind of a no brainer answer. I'll also say that you know, what often appears on in the appetizer portion of menus case Adidas and nachos both of which I think workers entrees, I would say that not shows or maybe more of a classic. Apple II will have a plate of nachos for a meal. Sometimes do you guys have anything that comes to mind and app for entree? Well, being born and raised in Sydney, Australia. I'd say they believe went on. Australian delicacy right famed authentic. Australian steakhouse outback that was from Rochester, New York. Yeah. We did. I mean, we could ask you some more specific questions if you're willing to talk about it. I thought you're not okay. I really don't want. Okay. That's fine. Yeah. About what I did. Or did not do I got yet. That's well, you took away the big to you fucking jerk. What are you talking about a case case D is the big one? But this is part of why it brought up case of case India qualifies, because I think it is kind of like, I think he was going to say wings entree think is also an entree set it like, I guess, I guess by Dan's Dan, from Colorado's rolls by Dan bills areas rules than it's eligible so case it is valid answer for me. It's borderline. I I'm trying to think otherwise, I can't think of anything, I know Natalie likes his as you're not gonna get fried pickle entree. No. That's on Natalie likes is an entree lettuce wraps, which I think is you get a lot of nutrition sliders. Right. Yeah. But yeah, you can advert slider slider. You stumble. The bottom. My man let into that one. Jerry O'Connell both. I yeah. That's a that's a tough. It is. Rebecca romaine? Jerry. Oh, does she sleeps? She sleeps on dining. Do people who sleep in weird like food related items? You have like a message board or something Facebook group, you gotta ziplock bag, and that's just I'm not I don't sleep in their. Oh, you don't. It's just when I don't wanna be an herb not allowed yet on a podcast. I got you. I mean, I guess you're on enough podcast where it's good spring with you, don't take drew. Yeah. I'm surprised you haven't put a plastic bag at least over your head. Mitch if you're going to do that you need to get like a lawn. Lettuce wraps are good. You know, what sushi is sometimes placed under an app. Yeah. If you're not at a sushi restaurant a lot times are we talking about like share ability or just the taste. I think the I what I took from the question is that it's four one individual's consumption. Now, Dan, I think gets gets a bunch of apps for the table, and they split them up, which is different thing. But I think if you're by yourself or if you're like I'm gonna I'm gonna order off the apps menu. What would you get for for one? Oh. Onion. Yeah. I don't. In fact, delete. What I said you take that? And just put it in your trash folder. You know, what else, you know, also works as is like cheese fries. Chili cheese fries big old fries with some sort of crap on them. That can be good filling. If you're eating like chicken fingers. I've eaten that as meal. Right. I wonder if that that meets his wings qualifier. I got one last one flat breads. Oh, interesting. That's like a little a little pizza for an entree that absolutely find that on a happy hour menu.

Changing Scripts: Conversations about Mandarin Chinese with native speakers and learners

28:42 min | 2 years ago

Ep 18: The Argh of Reading in 1st and Additional Languages

"Welcome to the changing scripts podcast every Sunday. We'll have one of two types of episodes all of them were robbing around learning and using Mandarin. Chinese one type of episode will be my updates on. What I'm learning? How I'm learning it different quirks within language and sometimes information about China itself since I am living in trying high China right now, the second type of that position where I'm interviewing people that are either learning the language like I am or people who grew up with Mandarin Chinese and the learned other languages the updates used to be on a YouTube channel. But have now migrated over into the podcast only. The interview started on the YouTube channel as well. And they very quickly ended up on the podcast. So everything's been kind of going back and forth. But I think I think this is where we need to be in queenie to be in your ears. Really really do. Now having said that the podcast is also available to listen on its own YouTube channel check the show notes, and you can find the link to the YouTube channel there. It's just an audio form. If you're studying Mandarin Chinese have said. He Mandarin Chinese. I'll whether it be as a child, doesn't it don't you're currently studying, you're currently using the language. I would love to interview. So please contact me. Also, I'm happy to announce that we now have an Amazon affiliate account. What does that mean to you? It means you can support the podcast without actually spending any extra money in the show notes or on my weekly account. So if you go to Steph Puccio S T E P H F, you see CIO dot we w e beat L Y dot com. Go all the way to the bottom. You'll notice that there's an Amazon button click on that. And that will bring you to my own very personal podcasting affiliate account with Amazon. Here's how it works. You just click on that link. Shop normally pay get your items be happy, and I'll get a tiny percentage of whatever you ordered. You. Do not pay anything extra. You also don't get a discount, but you'll get to support the podcast without doing anything. Super specially different. I greatly. Appreciate your support. I have one. Fancy new microphone, but I could use the second for my guests, and my computer, it's very quickly dying. And there's a lot of podcasting conferences to be honest with you I'd love to be able to go to. But since this is a passion project kind of needs some help with that. So that's what we're doing. I'm setting up some affiliate accounts and hopefully get some sponsors soon. And hopefully, we can make the podcast even better with each passing season. There's a few ways that you can feedback about what you hear in these two types of episodes in any given episode actually if you go back to that we blew website that I mentioned earlier stuff, Fujio doubt, we bleed dot com. Go to the contact page, and you will see a bright orange button. That's where you can send me a voice message. Thanks to speak five. I love this service. You can leave me a voice message for free, and I can even reply invoice. Message for him back to you. Let me know what you'd like we don't like questions you have about the episode's life in general in China learning Mandarin Chinese anything that you're curious about related to. What we're talking about on this podcast. Thank you very much for the supporting the podcast in any which way you can. And I look forward to your feedback. And again, if you know, anybody learning Mandarin Chinese or interested in Chinese culture, especially modern Chinese culture, please do pass on the podcast. These kinds of podcasts are passion projects. They're created from a place of deep interest, and they need to find other people that have those interests in the best way to do that is word of mouth. So you can go fill out an apple podcast review. If you really want to. But honestly, I'd much rather you tell a few of your friends about this podcast, especially if you know, they share this similar interest. Thank you so much, and let's dive into the episode. So this is an update video an IM simple buying these. Like, nobody's business. I'm doing two things only in this video, and I'm going to keep it as short as humanly possible because I think the main gist of what's happened to this project is the conversations with people. People who are learning language or who grew up with the language. I feel like that's why all of this started. However, so I'm your lines through all of it. And I am learning the language that we're talking about. So it's only I guess somewhat appropriate for me to give you a brief outline of what I'm doing for like a few times a month. So my update is first and the second thing is a connection to something that we talked about in the last interview, I consume a great deal of content online. So it could be news articles. It could be videos. It could be podcast. It could be books that could be literally anything this week. It is going to be podcast talking about a documentary about reading near and dear to my heart. All right. So let's start with my night update. Oh boy. Okay, vocabulary and then other stuff, right? I now have it by chapter and since I reorganized it yesterday. I haven't touched the my head reviewed them on. I'm reviewing vocabulary in context for few days only, and I don't know how much to come back to these. But they're all done chapters one three twenty three hundred ish cards. I still the ages K one in ages K to stuff, but this is just H case three I have not been reviewing a just K two and one consciously for weeks ages K three is a very consuming level, a very very consuming level. What I have been doing with heavy, and I'm really happy with this. This is now my I suppose grammar book I'd like to think of it as language in context book because instead of just being individual words, I am listening reading, and I don't I'm not doing any writing exercises. But I am listening and doing a lot of reading work in this. What had done it? I've taken the I like to manipulate the books that I use whether it be. Studying or anything else to be on this with you? And I've cut up the I've cut up. The course book, not the workbook. And I put the table of contents in the front, and I'll tell you why. Well, why I have done this in a minute. And then I've taken the conversation stuff because it has the vocabulary. Because it has the vocabulary Amnon conversation about the vocabulary. And then I have taken the grammar points. And then I write all over those pages as I'm trying to understand what the hell they're saying, which I'm gonna go back to that end. And just put a ton more examples so that I could get the pattern. Forget about the forget about the the deep understanding of their grammatical explanation. I want to understand the patterns of injury. And so I've I've done that for all twenty chapters all twenty doctors I went through three glue sticks in order to do this. And why am I doing this instead of not just carrying around? The course book itself one. This is a lot smaller than the course book I had to cut a lot of things out like the course book is about this size as a four piece of paper. I have all this space around like, here's the stuff from the course book, and I have all this space on the bottom. I can even right on the top. Sometimes I can ride on the sides. And there was something about cutting out the parts and pasting them in and relabeling them. And I'm going to highlight also the grammar points when I. To do in the next week in this probably won't happen. The next week. But what I'd like to do is boil it all down to a one page kind of grammatical reminder of the structures, and what they will take to hell with what kind of meaning day what kind of semantical, meaning they add to the sentences. I'd like to have that on one page for all twenty chapters. Even if it is really rough. I mean, some of them are easy. It's like the difference between couldn't remember the name of it. And I'm not gonna look it up right now two different ores in one of the chapters and one of them's for question. And one of them's first statement that's easy. That's like barely half a sentence is so their stuff like that. So I'd like to just have it on one page. I find that. When I have to consciously study stuff like this making it take up less than less than this in less space in having it on one page right at the end of a certain milestone in this case, the h K three-test helps me process it better again on much rather rely on frequent sentences that I hear and read then. Memorizing grammar. However, however, there is something to be said for noticing and to notice you have to know it exists, and you have to recognize it. And that's part of it for me. So in in writing those not just in the book when I'm writing them in finding more examples, but in writing them on that piece of paper, it's helping me notice that the other thing that I'm doing is. I you you've seen my list before right? I'm going through four chapters a day starting today. I have five non workdays and three workdays at one rest day right before the test. So in those five days, I'm doing four chapters a day of review, I'm going through. I'm doing the listening in the course book in this that I've put into the grammar votes. I'm doing the the reading exercises that I haven't done before. The listening says I haven't done before and trying to absorb and compile the grammar point. Maybe it's only eight o'clock at night. I still might be able to do this. I'd like to do all of listening over again. Now, four listening about twenty minutes. It's each about twenty minutes each when you get to the just can't three level guts twenty times four that's quite a while of listening and selecting things, but I found it really helpful last temporary just K to because there's some vocabulary that's used in every chapter in there some vocabulary that isn't and even just kind of jostling and jostling it in context. How it sounds not just how I think it sounds when I haven't heard it for a while. So it doesn't have to be super intensive kind of review. I feel more confident during the test in going into the test. If I have touched every chapter just before the test itself. So I am hoping to do all twenty chapters listening again. We'll see if that works that was Nevil laugh. So I've got listening exercise about the beginning of my worksheet. I have the starting scores from the first time, and I'll be doing the second time this week. That's chapters went through ten eleven through twenty will get here. But today I was trying to get to the point of doing the studying the reviewing at not just making the the plan because I could make plans for about five days. And then forget to study I made a chart for the reading exercises, and I'm going to put and what I what I did is today for chapters went to four instead of redoing all of the reading exercises, which didn't feel very productive. I went in. And I looked at ones that were zero at a five or one out of five, and I did one per chapter, and I'm also doing them at times fashion because the reading for ages K three gets really long. There's one two three readings do see that. That's one reading that's five questions. Nhs member correctly. Those three readings are like twenty minutes or something twenty or thirty. I think it's twenty minutes. It's some ridiculous amount of time. Wait, no. I figured out that it was about a minute a question, which is just crazy. I mean, I don't even read that fascinating. Louis C goes from twenty one to thirty five. I think there's more on the test though in the practice test. I wanna say they're reform easy. I think it was a minute question. So I'm timing my reading exercises. So when I put the second Minana can I show you one. Yeah. If you can see this, which I don't think you can all you can I have two dates on on the second date, which was to the second date, which is today. I also put the time is it took me twelve minutes. Geeks. Good news is when I did the review of reading to in chapter four it took me three minutes reading one untapped or two took me four minutes. So I'm charting it up to keep myself motivated. So I don't feel around because the test being about a week. Away is about as overwhelming as one can get now again, there's absolutely no stakes in this test. For me. I am using the test. This year, though, I'm really happy forcing myself to do it at the end of December. I really would probably be better off passing it if I were to take it in February or March, but I'm pushing myself to do it. So that it's kind of an end cap to the giant vocabulary thrust of the year giant giant vocabulary dump and I feel like even though there's a lot that. I can't remember there's a lot. I forget on a daily basis, and there's a lot that I that would never solidify the first time I've seen it or the first twenty times that I've seen something with repeat grammar point or vocabulary item or collocation for that matter. I feel like I've been exposed to a lot of stuff already, and I feel like with repeated exposures after h is K three is over. I feel like all of this will help that. I've got many pictures on Instagram on the different things that I do when I am studying. I did have. Few days where I didn't study. And to be honest with you, I get really slow in winter. And it's starting to get dark out at like four thirty in the afternoon and have to completely reconfigure everything. So that I'm up and get the most sunlight ETA my day. It's a crappy time of year the crop a time of year anyway. So there's a lot personally let's going on. But I'm trying to push forward. And my way to push forward is spreadsheets. So there you have it. Those are all my spreadsheets Hicks pets Injia pats. Would you do with the annoying paper mail that you get to your old addresses in your home country for a few years? I'd have all of my male forward to one friend, and then I'd feel guilty for bothering them so much. So then I'd have family member deal with my mail, and so on and so forth. And I did this for bell. Like what twelve thirteen years, and it got annoying, and let's face it. I miss a male because people have better things to do than look after my paper correspondence. So I finally broke down and got a service from traveling mailboxes. They will literally receive your mail. You get a US address you get to pick the city that it's in and you receive mail, and they'll let you know when mail comes in they'll open it scan it for UC can read it if you really need to go forward it to you for fee. You can also get packages delivered as well. And so there's like a variety of different services that you can. Have where you don't have to keep bugging your friends and family to do with your paper mail. So if you go to Steph, Fujio dot we dot com, it's S T E P H F, you see CIO dot we bleed W E B L Y dot com. If you go to the bottom, you'll see the blue add on the right traveling mailbox click on that I am now an affiliate program with them. So if you join their services, we both end up very, very happy campers, and you never have to ask your friends or family to receive your mail again. It's truly a beautiful thing. I have been adding so many new podcasts to my tuning list. One of the new ones that I really really really love is us in the I have three podcast. This is one of them. Gina's grips is one of them in the night have set rewind and virtual, Pat. And so I'm always on the lookout for other internationally focused global? Aware podcasts, especially if they deal with issues that I do not because I love to learn, but us and them is not actually dot kind of podcast. It is about different factions within the US, and I wasn't really looking for something like that. However, they dealt with a lot of education stuff in the two episodes that I've listened to so far in one of those two obsesses, but I wanna talk about today because it ties directly into what sway was talking about in dip. So that just was it's cold reading wars. And here's their description. Researchers say science makes it clear that there's a direct systematic way we should be teaching kids to read, but lots of people discount the science of reading they say teaching kids to sound out words, boring and kids learn to read naturally. If they're read to exposed to a lot of books. This is more of an angry argument than a public debate. It's been raging for years, and there's a lot at stake. Millions of American adults are not proficient reader readers trae, the the host of the show trade k- trade talks with Emily Hanford about her radio documentary. Hard words, there are so many connections to what I've been talking about inching scripts over the past almost two years to what they're talking about. In this podcast episode the podcast episode. I'm highlighting is based in the US. But I think the debate of how to teach children valuable things is everywhere. I have not actually found the documentary yet. I started to look for it. And then I remembered that I'm supposed to be studying a million times more than I was. So I stopped. It was enough that I listened to the podcast zone. But I did not actually follow up on it yet. Emily says that there's two main factions about how to teach children how to read in the US one is through phonics. Which I think I must have grown up with. But because I remember, and I've talked about with some with the number of my guests on the interview episodes. I remember the the letter is and the sounds of on the walls all around the classroom when I was child. I remember that do you remember not if you're in American, and your fortyish, you probably grew up with something like that sometime after I left the elementary school is when that shifted, but I don't know the exact here today, honest, the fun X or the one group and the whole language folks are the other group in the whole language folks are the ones that in that description that I was reading where they say just have them read. They'll just pick it up as they read. They don't need to know about fun IX. It's it's too much for them. They don't need it that town. She described that thing and on the back and forth that happens with that. And so apparently, it moved from fun extinct very heavy again during my childhood. I remember that being true in slightly after my childhood apparently that was still. True. And then it moved into whole language, and what's happened is a striking number of children. And now adults did not learn to read well, and they go into the stats in the podcast episode itself alone. They are talking about I languages this. Same debate named differently. Both in the name of the fight. And the name of the different factions is also really evident in second language learning in the English language, medium academic context. And with each qualifier as I usually do it got to a smaller and smaller and smaller group of folks. But unfortunately, these folks are the people that make a lot of textbooks for learning English in the at least the North American context. Oh, boy, the whole thing of explicitly teaching second language learners anything grammar pronunciation vocabulary of reading writing. Being explicit like breaking down a task and teaching them that the the steps to do the task is really really frowned upon. In a lot of circles. I however learned to teach English as a second language in a British context radically through the Celta and then through using a lot of British English textbooks starting teaching English as a second language overseas in that very functional do explicitly teach everything do teach the steps to get to these places. Do teach them about the language, but also break down the language teach them how to use the language definitely teach phonics from the beginning teach PA, which is the international Vinik alphabet in the US. We have a separate one. Then I came back to the US and taught at private language schools that were very tolerant of Mike explicit approach. Because the students seemed. To like it. And so they were like that's interesting. Okay. We'll let you do that. And then I taught at universities, and although I wasn't stopped doing that. When it came to teaching second language writing. In a academic context. A great number of folks were confused, and or flabbergasted that I would break down writing and teach it as if it was in their words math 'cause onerous have conventions writing John have conventions their general things that belong in the introduction bodies in in the conclusion of letters have John Ray conventions. Emails have Jonah conventions to social media posts have things that generally go in certain places, but to explicitly teach that was very very proud upon. And these are the kinds of things that it sounds like are happening between the phonics guys the ones that are explicitly teaching language. Sounds and the whole language, folks. Who were like, no, just let them pick it up organically. We don't pick a breaking. Organically writing is not or gimmick physiologically Emily goes into this with trae physiologically, we are built to speak. I love writing. I love reading if you haven't picked up already, but they are both very very human created creatures, and they're very difficult to learn and they're very difficult to master. And we need help doing it. So it infinitely frustrates me to this existed. But I did find it very interesting because way in the lost interview with talking about graphing phonemes we somehow to talking about that. I found it weird that I was remembering the sounds of the Chinese characters before the meaning. And he said usually for Chinese children learning language and learning characters it's the opposite that they'll remember the meaning before they'll member the sounds, and then he he actually introduced me to defrays. Despite being exposed to linguistics in the periphery of linguistics for quite a number of years. He introduced me to defray scrapping boning, which is just putting the sound spelling connection together. That's all that means. And so I thought it was really interesting to to hear this podcast after having that conversation with sway and putting his his episode out last week. And then all of a sudden in my feed is this podcast episode talking about teaching children, their first language like to read and write in verse language, and they actually said the the phrase that sway taught me the graphing phone in connect connection. They actually said that during the podcast now like oh my God. That's exactly what we were talking about. Like, I can't believe this is just our gangly coming up in Maya in my in my podcast app. But there was there. It was I want to inspire you to listen to that podcast episode because I have just barely touched on what it is about. So I think it's really important really interesting. And despite the fact that they're talking about first language learners. I think so much of this fight transfers over into how we teach second language learners, third language learners people that are learning languages that. Are addition to their first or I if they have multiple languages, I think it's a relevant fight of do. We explicitly teach language, I'm break it down and dissect it and play with it and teach them how to maneuver it. Or do we just expose them to it? And hope that they learn it, you you, obviously if nothing else from my, but my vocal choice in that last bit nowhere. I stand on this. Where do you stand on this? Do you have a preference for this? Now. Here's the thing. I bet you the answer is both instead of the fight of Choubey. Teach people explicit language explicitly any part of language explicitly. Or should we just expose them to it? I think it's books, and I think it depends on who it depends on what stage of the learning. They are Emily mentioned in one part that. At the beginning of reading students really need the phonics. And then as they move up being exposed to a lot of the language, and, you know, having more of the words that they're that they know how to say when they're reading them. Then if they see when they don't they don't know then they can try to figure it out by using some of the sound rules that they learned before. But at the beginning, it can't do that can't apply transitional language if you haven't been exposed to trends and language. So anyway, I bet the answer is they need both just at different times probably for different kids. It's slightly different. So exposing them to everything and letting letting them learn helping them learn how to read 'cause reading is. So insanely important not only for their education to learn information. But to learn how to function as a human being to have an escape when life gets shitty. To learn things on your own later on in life. I know a lot of stuff is audio including this project. But let's be honest folks, we need to know how to function in a language in all forms. So that we could be as as independent as actional as we can are. All right. Okay. Coming down from my soapbox. So what's coming up next week a longtime coming I owe a huge huge apology to Matt Boyle from language card games. He was the first interview that we did. But since I set it up technically still badly. It's taken me forever to get it to a somewhat audible form that is palatable medal is a mazing. He has lived in China for quite a number of years. Not only has he mastered the language reads in Mandarin. Chinese speaks it on a daily basis. He creates language card games. Like, I said he creates these language card games to help people get higher level. February using games and they're phenomenal phenomenal project. I do have a video on the YouTube channel where I reviewed them. I review them as a favor they were sent to me just for fun, and I decided to because I thought there was such a phenomenal product that was not a paid endorsement, I only want to do things that benefit you. And for those of you that learn with games and are certain level in one to really approve your vocabulary, really really fun way. I did that video for you for you. Anyway. So he's coming up next week. It is quite an interesting interview. So I think you'll be really really enjoy that he gives so many tips on how to learn it, so many different levels. He gives a lot of media recommendations reading recommendations, all kinds of things he still in China. He's he has his own YouTube channel that will all be in the show nets next week. But I did want to give you a heads up that amazing amazing conversation. The first conversation of the season ends up being almost the last podcast. Episode because of my technical non prowess, so sorry, Matt Tori, but there you go. Anyway, thank you so much the next time you hear from you will I might actually just do a quick video the day of the test. Just let you know how it went. And have that be the whole video so next week? Yeah. Matt's coming out on the second. Okay. So no Matt's coming out the day of my test. So I'm probably do a special video probably that day. I have. And then I'll do a longer update on what I'm studying after the H is K three am I moving onto ages skateboarder or? Coming sue. All right here, we go. Thank you so much for listening to this episode of the changing scripts podcast, again, if you are learning the Chinese language, or if you're coming from the Chinese language learning another language, I'd love to interview you for this podcast. Please feel free to contact me in any social media ways that you see God and contact me, and we will hash out how to get you on the sound creation. No knows the changing scripts podcast. A lot more coming your way soon.

Le Show For The Week Of November 29, 2020

"From all your device in soon a way to be a of stimulus so come selfies and with the Coming up again From the home of the homeless on. Harry shearer this is liz show and i was reminded this weekend of a couple of Little notes that were buried in the memory hole. It was two thousand five win. A tv celebrity by the name of donald trump complained that his show the apprentice was supposed to have won an emmy and unfortunately as he said at the time the emmys were rigged and he was cheated. It was He said kind of fraud in two thousand sixteen. The iowa caucuses were won by someone other than him and he publicly complained that the our caucus were rigged and fraud had taken place it. It almost seems as if it's i know this sounds hard to believe if it's some kind of pattern and now speaking of things that are hard to believe news of our friend the atom to me stay to gene to me seem to save to me see to. This certainly couldn't be true here in the united states. It's apparently drew in the united kingdom. The nuclear decommissioning authority. The nba has a perpetual lack of knowledge about the state and location of the waste on the seventeen nuclear sites. It's responsible for making safe. That's according to a committee of members of parliament reported the garden. This results they say from day. Decades of poor record-keeping nucleus isolated german and weak government oversight. So what the mp's said combined with a sorry saga of imcompetence. There is your alliteration for you and failure. This is left. Taxpayers footing the bill for quote astronomical sums according to the committee. I know it is hard to believe. Isn't it the nba acknowledges that it still doesn't have full understanding of the condition of those sites. Including ten closed. Magnox not magnavox that would be nice magnox stations from dungeness in kent to hunterston in ayrshire. The nba's most recent estimate is that it will cost current and future generations of uk taxpayers. One hundred seventy six billion dollars do pounds to decommission. The civilian nuclear sites and the work won't be completed stan. Sit down for this. You are sitting down. Stand up for this. Work won't be completed for another one hundred twenty years. I said oh you know what i said since two thousand seventeen the nda's that's nuclear decommissioning. Authority's upper estimate of the cost of the twelve to fifteen year program just to get the sites to the care and maintenance stage of the decommissioning process. Just the care would be good That upper estimate of cost has increased by four point. One billion to eleven point six billion quote our past experience suggests these costs may increase further. Yeah my experience to buy yes. I babe the nuclear decommissioning authority. You heard it. Lack of knowledge of the sites was a significant factor in the failure of a two thousand fourteen contract. The signed with a private company do decommissioned. The magnox sites the government was forced to take back to contract two years later. The botched bid is now taxpayers. Honored eighty seven million. The mp's found but that was the cost of nothing you know. Nothing isn't chief these days sir. Geoffrey clifton brown deputy chair of the public accounts committee said quote although progress has been made since two thousand eighteen report incredibly the. Nda still doesn't even know where we're currently at well. Yeah in terms of the state and safety of the uk's disused nuclear sites without that and after the match knocks contracting disaster. It's hard to have confidence in future. Plans or estimates. You said abeid yes. I bathed so. Geoffrey clifton brown the nba with stronger. Better oversight from government must make a clear break with the encompassed and failures of the past and step up to maximize the use of the astronomical sums of taxpayers money. It is absorbed unquote so jeffrey brown. Meg hillier the pac chair. That's public accounts. Committee said the uk went from leading the world in establishing nuclear power to this sorry saga of perpetual lack of knowledge about the current states of the uk's nuclear sites. A journey see in america. We call that a journey. The mp's recommended the nda speed up. Its work. I would recommend that and i haven't even investigated. Quoted may be possible to reduce the time it will take to fully decommissioned the sites from around eighty five years to more like forty or forty five years this could significantly reduce the long term cost unquote conversely extending amount of time. It would take would raise the cost. I just figure that out myself. They also said tax tax payers. Money could be saved by accelerating the program to create a geological disposal facility to permanently store. Highly radioactive waste currently held in interim facilities and the taxpayers. Money could also be saved by world. Peace seems like a pattern doesn't it. Maybe that's the the no deadline richland in washington may of last year workers at the perma. Fix plant pulled a hunk of radioactive from a powerful kill heated to twenty one two hundred geeze geeze fahrenheit hot enough to ensconce the material in glass for eventual burial. The workers let it cool. Apparently not long enough. According to the seattle times before setting it on a pallet residual heat caused the would in the palate brain a crew from the plant sprayed chemicals on the fire richland. Firefighters arrived to finish the job. A washington department of ecology inspector noted in a report that the alarm system was not operating that month in that the incident quote could have been catastrophic unquote. Just another bullet. We dodged i guess one or two fires a perma fix. Maybe it's perma fire in two thousand nineteen that were not publicly disclosed by the company or state regulators. Well you've got to have a secret. You need a partner. It offers an unsettling example of how things can go wrong at the private facility that treats radioactive and hazardous materials trucked in from hanford where they made the moms but the plutonium they made the plutonium for the bombs perma fix has thrived as a low cost. Operator you see by virtue of its location just outside the hanford site. It's able to operate without unions and beyond federal oversight of the department of energy and the defense nuclear facilities safety board. That board publishes weekly inspection reports. But it doesn't deal with perma fix. Because it's outside. The limits of the of the compound the years ahead officials with atlanta based perm effects are trying to have their company take part in hanford hardest most difficult remaining cleanup stabilizing the highly toxic wastes in one hundred seventy seven aging tanks leftover from making the plutonium and investigative report released by the seattle times by the watchdog group hanford challenge documents the fires as well as other mishaps and compliance problems. They say it calls into question. The safety of sending hanford 's wastes too. Perma fix. where are you going to send it. Who's gonna owe to britain. Yeah there is work at hanford. This is worked at hanford. Workers have done well in the past and should be doing now. Hanford as the built incapacity. The handle this waste and safer more transparent and more accountable manner wrote a one time. Top energy department official now working for hanford challenge or at least writing for for challenge. Much of the report is based on thousands of pages of documents based on the But they got under the state's public disclosure act from the department of health. The department felt licenses facilities to possess radioactive materials and monitors emissions. They also got documents from the state department of ecology that sound quite late sperm ethics operations involving hazardous materials at some good regulating. The record show problems with how the waste has on occasion been stored handled and labeled with that would be the big three and how at times the emissions have been monitored burma fixes compliance problems have resulted in more than half a million dollars in state and federal fines in eleven years decade plus. His worth of rest slaps have achieved their objective. Was our friend the atom. But you know ladies done making a we can do whatever we want. Because we've got dough minion. They sound like they really care. Don't they hey. I hope you don't like platypus. Assists you know might have you ever seen one. I've seen one. They're great but You might never seen one now. The hat of the platypus has shrunk by almost a quarter in three decades. That's a warning. Researchers relate to us via the bbc in egg laying mammal known for its duck like bill. The platypus has found river systems in eastern australia. Human intervention in those waterways bad droughts not the ones we and introduced predators have ravaged the platypus habitats researchers and conference at conservation. Groups are called for australia. Classified the species as nationally threatened habitat loss amounted twenty two percent about two hundred thousand square miles. Just since one thousand nine hundred. According to the team from the university of new south wales they have a university protecting the platypus in the rivers. It relies on must be a national priority. For one of the world's most iconic animals said the lead author he continued. There's real concern that platypus populations will disappear from some of our rivers without returning if rivers keep degrading with droughts and dams unquote. And they don't even have a us army corps of engineers down there. Would you like ours. The new south wales had seen a thirty two percent drop in platypus rations within the past thirty years maybe the observations were doing you know like Shorting cat twenty-seven seven percent drop in queensland seven percent in victoria in some areas near melbourne. The rate was as high as sixty five percents memo to platypuses stay out of melbourne and they did and the proliferation proliferation of pits and ponds created in recent years by miners digging for small deposits of alluvial gold top goal. That sounds like a segment. A rock and roll stations lineup old louisville gold. That though this would be happening in peru's amazon far away from rock and roll radio stations. That proliferation of pits and ponds has dramatically altered. The landscape what do you think and increased the risk of mercury exposure for indigenous communities and wildlife according to a new study from duke. Hey duke in heavily mined watersheds. There's been a six hundred seventy percent increase in the extent of ponds across the landscape since one thousand nine hundred five and they don't mean the cold cream these ponds are almost entirely artificial lakes created as thousands of former mining pits filling with rainwater and groundwater over time said Co leader of the study landscapes formerly dominated by forests are now increasingly dotted by these small lakes which going to the study provide low oxygen conditions in which the submerged mercury which itself is toxic. Leftover from the gold mining process can be converted by microbial activity into an even more toxic form of mercury mercury at rates five to seven times greater than in your normal river methyl mercury poses especially high risks for humans and large predators because it bioaccumulates body tissue as it moves up the food chain as right. Small animals eat at a larger animals. Eat them more. That's particularly concerning given the high biodiversity in the large number of indigenous populations that live in the peruvian amazon. Said a co leader of the study. These heightened risks likely also occur in other locations where unregulated small scale gold mining takes place a damn artisans including asia sub saharan africa and other parts of south america. This study was published in science advances. Artisanal gold miners use mercury to separate their gold or from soil and sediments even though the mercury is a potent neurotoxin. Would you like some neuro toxin with that gold. And they do this often. Without adequate safety precautions to themselves or the environment mercury poisoning since you asked can cause a wide range of health impacts your tremors your muscle weakness your vision and hearing impairments in severe cases birth defector death. Some mercury used by the miners is burned off into the air or spilled into nearby rivers creating far-reaching environmental and human health risks well documented and past studies. The new studies the first document how the mining has altered the landscape and simultaneously amplified the risks of mercury poisoning through the creation of the ponds and microbial processing of mercury into the methylmercury. That happens at those ponds. Yeah we create ponds and we're good at it because we've been given dominion. How do you say that again boys. You don't yell now. Ladies and gentlemen news of our smart smart world a first of all the cloud you do know the cloud doesn't exist up there right. It's not in the sky. It is like everything else affected by gravity. If it were in this guy he wouldn't stay there long. The cloud is a bunch of servers on some formerly worthless real estate in the southeast united states much of it and some of it went blue. This week amazon's widely used cloud computing service suffered a major outage this week in its eastern. Us operations hampering everything from services to for web connected security cameras to software applications that businesses use to design products starting morning wednesday variety of amazon web services applications began to fail according to the washington post including ones that delivered data and authorize users to access that data the hot that hobbled companies that rely on aws. Ironically including ring security cameras owned by the very same amazon. Yes it's cannibalized it's cannibalising itself now. Ladies gentlemen others affected included i robots roomba vacuum cleaner services from designed technology from autodesk the publishing systems of news outlets such as the washington post. Aws is the world's largest provider of cloud computing services computers rent storage and processing capabilities over the internet instead of running their own data centers. You know being self sufficient like aws competes in the business of providing computing infrastructure via the cloud against microsoft google. It is now amazon's most profitable business. They held forty five percent of the global market in two thousand nineteen companies as diverse as net flicks kellogg's and airbnb run significant pieces of their computing on aws. That dominance comes with a price when its operations go down. The takeout wide swaths of the web has shown. This past wednesday with outage amazon offered little in the way of explanation quote. We are working toward resolution then Jars later amazon. Broder road road on the status page at had had quote identified. The root cause of the problem was working to resolve it by mid afternoon.

I robot said the outage was currently impacting. Our i robot home app at manages its vacuums so by bumps into the coffee table news sites such as the wall street journal and the chicago tribune also noted the outage affected their operation a massive. Aws amazon web services outage two years ago disabled large chunks of the internet including slack medium and quorum that outage also hit the northern virginia region was caused by human error and employee miss type to command taking down huge portions of the system and knocking out the core storage service in a late update amazon now reports that the cause of this latest outage was them. Trying to add capacity to their system amazon customers are being automatically opted into sidewalk to business insider. This is a feature set to launch later. This year that the company says we'll collect sorry connect alexa devices do nearby wi fi networks even those owned by someone else. Sidewalk uses alexa devices and ring doorbells to create a quote shared network unquote meant to help. Devices work better. Don't you want that. wouldn't you like that. Can i charge. Something for it. Amazon sent an email to device owners. It allows nearby devices to use a portion of a neighbor's wifi bandwidth so the devices can have more range who wouldn't want that. Don't you want more range. Do you want less range. High endless range amazon said on a launch page these bridge devices. They services called bridge. And that's called a service. Share a small portion of your internet bandwidth which is pulled together to provide these services to you. End your neighbors. And when more neighbors participate the network becomes even stronger. Wouldn't you like that. Anticipating privacy concerns amazon published a research paper detailing technology and the steps taken to keep users data private company concluded. Privacy was one of the foundational principles of sidewalks design but they misspelled principles and one of the founding foundational principles. The others are screw privacy by sharing small portion of their home network bandwidth neighbors give a little bit get a lot in return. Reports authors said. Summer still skeptical about user privacy user data privacy professor at the university of surrey surrey. Wrong number he specializes in cybersecurity. Told bbc that sidewalk should be an opt in feature. It feels wrong. He says not knowing what your device is connected to this is from business insider. It sure does feel wrong. Don't you know feels great. The chief information security officer at sei jax told forbes. The launch was deeply problematic thing from a privacy perspective. The on by default approach is not consumer friendly no one rides on my wifi for free especially a giant corporation with billions of dollars. He said an amazon representative confirmed sidewalk would be automatically enabled through existing customers. Existing customers are kind of lucky. Don't you think major security flaws in popular smart doorbells are putting consumers at risk of being targeted by hackers inside their homes according to the british consumer guide called which reach. And you have to go into fall to say which the consumer group says devices being sold on marketplaces such as amazon ebay could easily be hacked or switched off by criminals. It's asking the government for new legislation to safeguard consumers. Mum most common flaws weak password policies and a lack of data inscription. How long have we been hearing that about this stuff and it stays that way must be good. Team of researchers demonstrated that popular robotic household. Vacuum cleaners can be remotely hacked to act as microphones and through one. Now i'm not the researchers including an assistant professor at the university of maryland's department of computer science collected information from the laser based navigation system in popular robot applied signal processing and deep learning techniques to recover speech and identify television programs playing in the same room as a vacuum research demonstrates the potential for any device that uses light are light detection and ranging also used in Driverless cars that technology can novick. Campanian could be manipulated for collecting sound. Despite not having a microphone. We welcome these devices into our homes and we don't think anything about it said new rupan roy assistant professor at that at that aforementioned assistant professor at the university of maryland institute for advanced computer studies. But we've shown. Even though these devices don't have microphones. we can repurpose the systems. They use for navigation to spy on people conversations and potentially reveal private information. Privacy experts have suggested the maps made by vacuum bots often stored in the cloud pose potential privacy breaches that could give advertisers access to information about such things as home size which adjusts income level and other life style related information. You see sound. Waves caused objects to vibrate. These vibrations caused slight variations in the light bouncing off an object which is picked up by lighter. What is smart smart world Jay go away home where we used to be. Won't you stay hidden. We we to be free e were in mind. You'll stay know we've come to. What does she the don't they. Don't you play me stay with me just with. This is the show. And and one of their part of the pattern. I neglected to mention earlier in the wake of the two thousand sixteen election. Donald trump fumed that he'd been cheated because contrary to what had been reported and certified by everyone else. He believed that if there hadn't been massive fraud he would have won. The popular vote is well. Yeah it is apparent speaking donald trump. His the guy who made him famous enough to run for president. Mark burnett the creator of the apprentice and the creator of the donald trump. America thinks it knows you know the judicious sagacious decision maker at the in the boardroom. Mark burnett had A hit before that called survivor. He had i think one more called. the voice and then he Became head of mgm. Television member with the lion. And the thing and hollywood reporter is Ran a piece this week saying that He occupied a occupies an ambiguous position of power. He's not only failed to generate new hits for the company but that he has been much like the president with whom he is associated an agent of chaos in the studio. He's having a problem in terms of The lack of new reality hits. He had scored record ratings with a History channel series the bible with his wife roma downey. But they're netflix series. Messiah debuted in january to poor reviews and canceled after one season. Mgm veterans note. That burnett was not the force behind the company scripted television department and it's hits the handmaid's tale and fargo. He was hired to do what he does. Non scripted television at which According to reporter and people they quote he's not not so successful at the job so far meanwhile his His creation accident trump has been on the rampage all week claiming again and again that he was cheated that there was massive fraud in the twenty twenty election predicting that people would soon realize that unlike the appeals court. Three three judge appeals court panel in pennsylvania which throughout the case that Rudy giuliani had brought on his behalf. The time for certifications to be in from the states and for the electoral college to gather not really and vote is is fast approaching and while murmurings come from the white house that President trump is coming to grips with the situation. His public pronouncements don't show much sign of that he had one kind of ambiguous quote that suggested he He saw the writing on well. He saw the wall if not the writing and his chief of staff. Mark meadows has been out Among the fiercest of the remaining loyalists along with rudy rudy giuliani. Of course who's charging twenty thousand dollars a week a month a year night. Something ridiculous to Maintain the the president's belief that he won the election. It all sounds like this this week for the first time thinking outside the box is the new box and for the businessman turned chief. Executive tightened does not only his enemy. It's cheating to show mike Nice few hours out on the links eh. not bad chief of staff duty for holiday weekend right. Wow i was great sir. I don't know why. I haven't been out to one of your courses before you mean besides the fact that i didn't invite you of course just just time frisch to find a little bit. I tell you that. See anybody hit that many holes in one. Absolutely not sir. I just saw that one room for me on the car. A presidential pardon. I get to spread out. You caught up eventually just in time to see the ball. Come up out of the cup measuring ron of. I guess you'd have to call it a incredible shop panicle man to look. I need chief of staff right now. My legal team such as it can't seem to keep cases in the courts especially the sydney woman who names a girl sydney. the only place she'd get it tumbles in the clothes dryer or australia. Legal processes shorter amount. Elaine breaking news to mark. This is an extra special time. Everything's in your lane. As of two weeks ago. In case. If i got to tell you show the court sir. I have spoken to a couple of guys in the white house. Counsel's office they're saying the judges are impatient with what they call the lack of proof of massive fraud as well as the fact. Mr giuliani is saying to some of the judges that some of these suits are alleging fraud. So rudy thought he could break the fraud thing as a surprise when she had the judges full attention.

Don't know someone who had Covid? You kind of do.

"This is Komo W I'm Kim Malcolm Anna King is ws correspondent in the tri cities. You've no doubt heard or reporting on Hanford, the agriculture industry and a wide range of other. And up until the beginning of June she was covering the impact of the current virus pandemic east of the cascades. Then she got really sick. She told me about her seven week battle with covid nineteen. It came on me like a train. I just was like fine for the whole. Afternoon and then I went out for just a tiny bit to run errands. I came back, and I had this like one hundred and one fever, and then one hundred and two, and it just kept climbing, and so we went to a doctor. They gave me a Co vid test there. We came back home. I just remember the next couple of days being. Being like a delirium I just couldn't make sense of my words, and and then like the third or fourth day is when I couldn't breathe, and that's when we decided to go to the hospital and I just didn't know when my husband dropped me off of those hospital doors. Like what's going to happen to me, am I gonNA come out of here. Am, I gonNA see my husband again because they wouldn't let them come in with me. And then after about twenty minutes they came in and the doctor was like. You know I know it feels like you can't breathe I. Know You you're having trouble, but you are getting enough. Breath after they checked my oxygen and gave me an ekg and everything else. And it was just incredibly scary to go home. Then I was relieved and one point to go home when they told me I could go home, but on the other hand you're just sent home with advil. And tylenol and you just have to like muscle it up and get a night's sleep in wake up the next day, and still feel the same, and that was like my life for days and days of just feeling wretched feeling, nauseous, feeling this high fever, and then not being able to breathe. Yeah the scary part is your home, but you don't know how long this is going to last four and and I understand the doctors told you were quote a long Holler. What does that meant for your recovery? I think some of the most difficult parts of this disease was not when I had the super hard fever, or was having a lot of trouble with breath, but just the mental work of staying in the fight for weeks and weeks, and having a fever everyday. It just grinding like you just know it's coming. You know you're gonNA feel horrible in the afternoon and you just. Just have this little couple hours in the morning where it's kind of like the release thousand gets gets reset, and and you're able to kind of take a breath, and and be okay, and then you just know it's coming that you're gonNa feel awful again, and it just wore on me, and it just wore me down. Just was like grist mill. Just ground me down. One way that I marked time was one of my dear friends from Seattle actually sent me this paint by number kit, and I would paint this little painting and put blobs of. Paint on this painting and I could only do like five to seven blobs before I got really really tired, and so then I would go lay on the couch for a couple more hours and then I would do a couple more blobs, and it was like excruciatingly slow, but it was marking the time passing. An Anna beyond the physical effects of the illness and the recovery itself. What has been the most difficult part? Would you say of getting cove nineteen? I think the most difficult part was just social distancing with my husband. My husband got three different Cova tests from his workplace so that we could figure out if he was still well or if he was also coming down with it and every time he tested negative, and so we knew we had to keep him safe, so we would stay in adjacent rooms. We would like not. Getting more than six. near each other, we would keep the windows open even though it's hot over here. Just to try and keep him well, and it was just so lonely. So, lonely Kim to be away from the people that you love. You know how you got infected with coronavirus. Kim I was like a social distance Ninja like I did not go anywhere and I knew that I couldn't get sick I. You know I knew that. I didn't want to do this and so like I didn't see hardly anybody I got grocery delivery. I wash my hands like a fiend. The only person I saw was one family member. We social distance in the backyard, six feet apart, and that was the only person I saw in in months, and so I was really cloistered at home, and so it's really surprising that I got it. And before you got sick with covid nineteen, you're reporting on the virus and its impacts of what do you understand better now about this virus? I think that anything you can do to not get. It is worth it and I know that we're all tired of doing it right now. We're all tired social distancing. We're all tired of being so careful. We're tired of not having our children play with their friends, but. If you can think me and having a seven week tour of covid. If you can save yourself from that. That's what you should do. How do you think this is going to impact your reporting going forward? I've always had empathy for the people that I cover and the sources that I interact with but. I just feel like now I have this new window into what it's like to be sick for a long time, and it gives me even more respect for the grace, and the humor of some of my friends like Christina Lord and Theresa. Ford who have had breast cancer, and who have had to fight that fight for years. This just gave me a tiny window into what beings that sick is like and being out of society, and how tough it is. Well. You are back at work now. We are talking which is great and you're working part-time I. Understand and and we are so grateful to have you back. Can you tell us how you're feeling today right now? You know I can make it around the block now. I can do a little bit of Yoga. It takes me a long time to walk around the block. I have to wait and three that every single power pole, and just like. Sit there for a few minutes to like. Catch my breath and let my heart rate. Come down, but I am doing it and I'm able to go all the way around the block, which is an accomplishment, 'cause only making it to one end of the block a while ago. and. You know just life is so sweet like the day after my first day back at work was my birthday, and I was able to just go to this farm and have pizza with my husband and two friends who sat very far away from us, and we just sat there and ate melon pie in pizza, and had a bonfire, and then watch the comet Neil wise from an outdoor platform bed. And it was just magical. Kim It was like I'm back I'm alive. I'm here and I see what's going on in the world again. Well it's great to have you back and and thank you so much for sharing your story with us. It's great to be back.

Solving A 'Student Achievement Crisis': Why Kids' Reading Scores Are Down

"This message comes from on points sponsor. Indeed if you're hiring with indeed you can post a job in minutes set up screener questions then zero in on your shortlist of qualified candidates using an online dashboard get started at indeed dot com slash. NPR podcast from NPR WB. You are Boston Meghna trucker body and this is on point what is happening with children and reading according according to the latest results from the National Assessment of Educational Progress Aka the nation's report card barely one third of American fourth graders can read Eddie proficient level. Now this is a problem. Everywhere from poorly resourced school districts all the way to affluent schools filled with families who do nightly story time and have homes packed packed with books. So let's say it again. According to the nation's report card barely a third of American fourth graders are strong readers. The here's the thing we have decades. He's worth of research about how the brain actually learned how to read. So what is going on this hour on point getting reading right and we'll start today with more on the so-called recalled nations report card leanna. Lois is assistant managing editor for education. Week a Daily News website and print magazine that covers education the news and analysis and she joins us from Bethesda Maryland. Leeann AH WELCOME TO ON POINT MAGNA. Thanks for having me so I will just explain to us for folks who don't know what exactly is the national assessment of educational progress her The national assessment of Educational Progress Progress also known as nape or the nation's report court card is a test that comes out it's given every two years To fourth and eighth graders across the country and every two years at test their math and reading skills scowl so we we get a picture a snapshot nationally of how students are doing okay so this is every couple of years so we get this flurry of activity around how our American students is on two core doing onto core areas reading a math. So tell us. What did the latest reading scores in two thousand nineteen offer US share the latest reading scores? Tell us that In fourth grade about thirty five percent a fourth graders are proficient readers. It's important to know that proficient on nape is a bit higher higher than grade level. It means that they have success with challenging content at that grade so it doesn't exactly mean grade level it means a little higher than that In for eighth graders only about thirty four percents proficient and When we look back to the twenty seventeen scores we can see a decline in both? Both fourth and eighth graders Over those two years so so looks like scores went down a little bit To a statistically significant agree though. Okay so as to underscore what you're saying here. We're talking about a proficient reading level level which is which is some which is generally higher than grade level but but we want we want as a nation our children to be as strong readers as possible so we want those proficiency see numbers to be as high as possible and we're seeing barely a third of American fourth graders at that proficient level. How has that number changed if at all Over the longer time over the ten or thirty years that this test has been administered. Yeah of course you're right. We would love to see a lot. More students reading Proficiently above grade level. A little bit you know so But if we look back over ten years We see that fourth grade scores are actually up a little bit and eighth grade. Scores are flat and if you look back even further to nineteen ninety two when we got the first scores and nape you can see that they're both up a little bit but as you say I mean just a third of you know fourth and eighth graders. Reading at that. Level is is not great news. Okay so let's hear a little bit from how The Secretary of Education Betsy Devos talked about the nation's report card board scores when she presented them last month. Nearly half a fourth graders who qualify for free and reduced lunch are below basic. But let's be honest about what below basic really is. They can't read and their scores are getting worse in case. You're missing the obvious that my friends is the headline that Education Secretary Betsy Devos last month we NS. She's talking there about the kids score the lowest on the test of can can you tell us inch pursue presented at some very stark numbers there. Yeah I think most people lewitt agree. That sort of the most disappointing news about these scores at that is that the lowest performers went down the most between twenty seventeen and twenty nineteen so The highest ten percent of of performers. They held steady. Everyone below them went decline in their scores and the lowest the students who performed at the tenth percent or below they they. They declined the most. So that means that we're seeing you know. Huge gap between the highest lowest performers and that gap has increased so. That's really disappointing. Disappointing now Secretary Devos. They're tied that number two The fourth graders who qualify for free and reduced lunch so tying it to socioeconomic status. It's really I mean is that is that is a meaningful correlation in the context of a fourth grade literacy. Well we can. We can look across subgroups in a lot out of different ways. And actually almost every subgroup is down between twenty seventeen and twenty nineteen. We can see you know. White students black students male students students with and without disabilities his English. You can tie it to to free and reduced lunch. I mean I'll like pretty much. Every subgroup is down at this point so she's right to do that okay and what about Schools schools that are better resourced in more in middle class or affluent districts. I mean if a third of fourth graders nationwide or not or only a third heard of them are proficient readers. Certainly you've got to be capturing some of the more affluent districts that are scoring as well as you might think. Yeah I mean you know you can this. This is We got a really general. Look they also looked You know by by district and you can see a little bit there that You know and some of these big districts that scores have stayed steady But yeah I mean tha athlete. Students tend to score better but but still Overall the the results are just. We're we're not seeing We're not seeing a lot of uh-huh a lot of improvement. Among you know any of these subgroups you know regardless of where they are I think one thing that's really important to to understand about nape nape. Data though is that Is it it's all. It's corollary data it. You cannot draw draw direct line right so it's you can't You say why why something is happening. We can understand that students are struggling. But we can't draw a direct line to is so a lot of people a lot of policy makers and advocates will say you know it's because whatever policy that they're pushing You Know Secretary of Education Betsy Devos linked to School twice she said in her statement. you know the need for education freedom. It's really hard to to look at the data and say This is why students are struggling. All we know is that they are struggling. That's remarkable Leah. I'll I'll be honest. After thirty years of administering this test in having kind of consistently not great scores on reading proficiency. We as a nation still can't tell why this is happening. I mean is it because education is so complex and there's so many different variables into what makes it makes good teaching. I don't know why is that. Well the the reading test is is kind of interesting in particular. It's hard to tell their because The test is a test of reading comprehension. So what comprehension engine is you know. Students will read a passage and answer some questions about it. But what it doesn't test is there are really two pieces to comprehension so there is Comprehension is it is Two things it's a product of how well a student can decode so how they can decipher the words on the page. What they say And and how how well they understand language so when you just test their comprehension and they read a passage and answer questions. You can't tell if they struggle because they didn't understand the words and the is it weren't able to decode those words. What they were or because they were able to read all the words they just didn't have enough language skills and vocabulary background knowledge to know to know what they meant? So well well leanna. Lois is assistant managing editor for education. Week joining us from Bethesda Maryland. Leeann thank you so much for being with us. Thank you magna all right. I'd like to turn now to emily. Hanford she joins us from Washington. She's senior producer in education correspondent for APM reports. which is a part part of American public media and Emily has produced three extensive radio documentaries about the science of reading the most recent of which was called at at a loss for words? And we've got a link to that at one point radio DOT ORG. Emily Hanford welcome to on point. Hi thanks for having me so in a couple couple minutes. We're going to talk about the one St that seems to be bucking the trend here in terms of reading proficiency but you've been following this issue for many many years were you surprised That the latest nations report card found that barely. A third of fourth graders were proficient in reading. I'm not surprised prized because it's a trend And I think as you were talking about with Leanna I think even more shocking here is just the percentage of kids that can't even read on a basic basic level. So we've got a third of kids who can't even read on a basic level and It's a trend We have seen Some some of the states that have traditionally been performing a little bit better even go down states like Massachusetts. For example saw dropping their scores as Leonid talked about this was is really across the board across demographic groups across states except for the one outlier. We're GONNA talk about in a few minutes So no I was is not surprised to see it One of the things that I think would be interesting and enlightening to talk about is the role of poverty when when it comes to learning how to read I think when these I think we have a narrative in this nation that our scores are the way they are because we have a lot of poor kids And that's an poor kids are going to have a hard time. Learning to read and poverty definitely has an impact on reading development. But what's really interesting is that there are now like decades of research that come from the cognitive sciences from psychology from linguistics from speech pathology from neuroscience. There's this gigantic body of evidence about how people learn to read like how skilled reading works. How people learn to do it? And what's going on when kids struggle and what I found in my reporting is that that body of evidence is not making its way into choose schools of education or schools so what a lot of teachers are taught about reading if they're taught much of anything is not really league lining up very well with that scientific research and in some cases. It's really at odds with that research. So there are a lot of misunderstandings and misconceptions just just about the basics of how reading development works That I have found Oliver schools and I think that's part of what's going on so emily. We're going to talk a lot more about that when we come back from a quick break but I want to ask you question the last minute we have here Could the problem be the nation's report card test itself because because I always I always feel like we have to question the assessments as well. I mean if it's if it's asking for certain proficiency level that so many kids aren't reading are we testing for the right things. There are certainly questions to be asked about the test and the the where proficiency is set as you talked about but again just look at the basic level and we also have indication from a lot of other other places Various state tests and other kinds of measurements. That tell us that kids. A lot of kids really aren't learning to read very well. And if you look at the evidence what you can I think take from that as the not being taught to read very well because of kids are taught to read virtually all of them can become at least basic readers or better. We have lots of evidence to show. Show us that so we will talk about that evidence more when we come back. We are discussing this hour about some dismal scores regarding reading levels for American fourth graders according to the so called nations report card. We'll be right back. This is on point. This is on point I magnitude crowbar. D were talking this hour about getting reading right especially after the most recent so called nations report card that found that barely one third of American fourth graders are reading at supposedly proficient levels and why that number hasn't budged all that much in several decades. I'm joined today by Emily Hanford. She's a education correspondent for APM reports. It's part of American public media. She's done a number of lengthy radio documentaries exploring the science of reading her. Most recent one is called at a loss for words now. Emily can just explain to us kind of in simple terms. What do we know about how the brain learns how to read? Yeah a couple of key takeaways from the quote unquote science of Reading. So starting back in the nineteen seventies really Cognitive scientists and others got really interested in sort of how we read and one of the big takeaways is that reading is learning to read is not a natural process. Basically we are born with brains that are not wired to read. And that's because reading and writing was invented Kinda recently. We've been around for a long time as human beings and and reading and writing and written language is kind of a new invention so essentially we are not born wired to read. We are born wired to talk and as long as a child does not have a major cognitive deficit or a hearing problem. If she is surrounded rounded by spoken language she will learn her language. She will learn to talk. What's happening is that there's the other big takeaway from the reading? Research is is that learning to read and learning to talk very different and there are different things that kind of need to be in place so when a child goes to school Leeann mentioned this a moment ago that there there were like two parts to reading and it's this Thing called the simple view of reading which was proposed by scientists back in one thousand nine hundred eighty six to try to understand understand. What reading comprehension is because everyone agrees that comprehending what you read is the goal but the question is how does a little kid get there and and what happens? Is that when a kid comes into school. There are two parts of this equation in terms of reading comprehension. There's your ability to decode words or recognize written words in print. So just just so that people understand you're talking about you know knowing what we're learning what each The sounds that individual letters make the sounds that they make when they're put together And and how those then build together to form entire words and at the end of that even for a skilled reader The simple of you reading is actually like basically like a math. It's like an equation it's decoding ability or ability to To recognize words in print times your language comprehension in your language comprehension. It's just all the words that you know the meaning of oral language and it includes background knowledge in lots of other things about your sort of understanding of the way the language works putting aside written language For now so if you multiply these two things together your decoding ability and your language comprehension you multiply those two things together and you get your reading comprehension. So when a little kid comes into school what they have is some amount of stuff on the language comprehension side of the equation. Kids know how to say a lot of words. Some kids know a lot more words than others in this is how family background round in poverty in particular can have a fairly big impact on reading abilities. Because what you sort of know can really be influenced by your family background but when you come into school kids tend to have something on the language comprehension side of the equation. What they don't have any of or maybe just a little little bit of is an understanding of the coding side of the equation? So if your goal is to get little kids to reading comprehension you WANNA work off their language comprehension mm prevention and teach them how to read those words they know the meaning of lots of words but not how to read them. Okay so emily isn't that ostensibly what's happening. Winning in every American elementary school across the country I mean is that now kids are being taught. Well I think what's happening We've had a lot of arguments over a long long period of time About reading and how to teach it and we've been fighting about it for a long time in one of the things that's kind of gotten in the way is this question of reading comprehension like like. Everyone wants kids to be able to understand what they read. I think there's a confusion that I see in a lot of curriculum materials that are used in schools. There's sort of a confusion of the means and the ends I mean everyone wants to get to reading comprehension but again. How do you get there? So one of the things that's been missing in schools is really focusing on the foundational skills of word. Reading now word. Reading is not all you need to be a good reader but it's a very important foundational skill and the key here. Is that if you learn how to read words. Well when you're five six and seven years old you've just been given the key your best. I bet for learning more on the language comprehension side for learning the meaning of words for gaining knowledge and background. Which of the this the thing that you're going to need on that other or side of the equation to take something like the nape test in fourth grade and be able to comprehend what you're reading so let's get we are missing out a little bit on that foundational L. Skills piece sort of in the idea that we want kids comprehending what they read right right right away without recognizing that there are pieces that need to be put together that lead lead to skilled reading so so emily help us get more specific here on what you what you're saying because you're documentaries are so full of detail on this you're talking about the sort of other Very popular approach to teaching reading. What balanced literacy or or a whole word teaching? Can you explain to us. What that is sure? Balanced Literacy is a term that a lot of schools used to describe their approach to reading. There's no definition of precisely what that means so it can mean different things in different places. What I've found in my reporting is that balanced literacy often is sort of grows out of a whole language approach to teaching reading in which was very popular back in the nineteen eighties nineties and it was kind of A? It was a little bit of an amalgam of some things that had have been around for a long time but it was it was it really had sort of a theory of how people learn to read words behind it and it really was that it's not so much about the ability to sort accurately and precisely decode the words in front of you that you sort of start but with the meaning and that kids can learn words by sort of understanding the context context using the pictures making good educated guesses about what the words might be and there's a model of reading that really was at the root of the whole language which approach that said that that is actually what skilled reading was that is you and I are going along as skilled readers. We're using context to predict the words rather than then our knowledge of sounds and letters to know immediately what the words are and what the scientific research has shown over. The past forty years is that there's a key difference between skilled readers. Unskilled readers like people who can take the eighth grade test of a test and really understand what they read. Skilled readers are able to quickly immediately accurately identify tens of thousands of words. And there's all this research that shows how our brains learn to do that and they learn to do them by initially being really good at sounding out the words and connecting sounds the pronunciation of the word with the written form of the word and the the meaning of the word so emily let me just jump in here. Because you're reporting you. Don't just imply I mean you pretty much state in your reporting that there are Cognitive active science experts out there. Who believe that? This sort of balanced literacy approach or context based approach to teaching. Reading is actually actually teaching. Young Children The strategies that are generally used by struggling readers is. Is that what you're saying. Yeah I mean the research has really shown that people who struggle with reading and people who are really good at reading often have very different approaches to it and a lot of what you will find curriculum materials. Today is teaching some of the key strategies that people who struggle with reading words can develop on their own or now are being being taught as a way to cope with text when they're not very good at quickly and accurately knowing the words and being able to put it all together to comprehend what they're reading so We are in many schools today. There are many sort of practices and traditions around teaching reading and many of those things things at the early grades are teaching kids the strategies of struggling readers. And how many schools is this going on out while we don't really know the answer answer to that question And it's very hard in the United States to figure out exactly how reading is being taught because we have a lot of local control and the local control. Troll can even go to individual classrooms in any given school so you can even look and see what particular materials are being used. But you don't know that the individual teachers churches are necessarily using those but we do know is that there are some very popular materials That are being used and I've reviewed a lot of them and they do contain contain a lot of these ideas That really are Teaching kids the strategies of struggling readers and many kids can overcome that because one of the other interesting things things about the science is maybe about forty or fifty maybe in some schools sixty seventy eighty percent of kids. There's some proportion of kids probably about half or less. Who are? We're going to learn to read pretty easily. They don't really need that much. Instruction of they have really good final logical awareness and there are some other things in place for them where they just this kind of get it pretty easily but there are other kids half or more and there's probably twenty or thirty percent of kids without really good direct instruction when and how they're written language works they're not really ever GonNa get it that well and if you teach them. The strategies struggling readers early on many of those kids are going to hold on to those strategies and they can look like good readers in first second third grade but often they really start to fall apart in fourth grade when there are more and more words in their books there are fewer and fewer pictures. It's harder for them to use context. They have you know one thing that struggling readers can do sort of memorize a certain number of words by the way they look they kind of get a visual memory of the word but all of the science from the past several decades really shows that we do not Store words in our long term memory Marie by the way they look we store them through this process where we are linking the pronunciation. The sounds in the words the written form of the word and the meaning of the word we link those three things together and this amazing thing. HAP- this amazing thing happens. We are born with brains that are not wired to read but some of us can get really really good it reading because we have a brain that just takes to it easily and possibly we get really good instruction but that's really the the variable here is what kind of instruction -struction do you get so people's fauna logical ability and ability to get it when it comes to reading is sort of distributed on a continuum so over on one side of the continuum. You have people who have dyslexia like they have a final logical deficit and there can be some other things that are going on. There's some really interesting research going on about what dyslexia is. But there's some percentage of the population that is just sort of wired in a way that they what they need to become good readers. They're going to need a lot of intensive instruction so emily tonight chilly Komo hanging here for a second. Sorry to interrupt you but you brought you brought a lot of points here that that I think are quite crystallized in one moment in your documentary that I just WanNa oh I wanNA play for folks here because you visited a lab at the University of Maryland that run by DJ Bolger where they study how the brain learns learns how to read And you talked with With Bolger about a study that he did where students tried to learn a foreign language or language that was new to them and some of them learned with direct instruction through phonics. As we've been discussing others use this. This other approaches whole language or balanced wants literacy approach and then bolden colleagues actually put these students in an FM machine and took brain. Scans of them and here he tells tells you what he found. I was expecting that those with holistic learning method would look almost like your run of the mill dyslexic in that many children with dyslexia learning to memorize lots of whole words but they actually don't tend to activate the areas of the brain that are associated with phonology and pronunciation so that's what j bolder boulder was expecting to find. Is that what he found that this. This whole language approach to reading wasn't actually activating activating certain parts of the brain. That are important to learn how to read. Yeah yes he did what he was actually investigating was a whole word approach which is a little bit different than whole language but the whole word approach but often you will find that in a whole language or balanced literacy classroom. You will see a lot of kids being asked to memorize memorize a whole lot of words and what we know is that that is not the most effective way for kids to learn words so there may be some words at the early stages because as you want get kids into reading books. I mean one of the tricks here. Is that English. The English language is we have a complex orthography. And it's because we have this really cool Melting Ping Pot language. Where are there we have all these influences? We have from Greek and from Latin and from French and some of our oldest words some of our most common words our oldest words and they come from like anglo-saxon and they pronounce things really differently back then so some of our words was in the some of the most basic words that you will need to just access. A text are actually really really difficult to explain to kids in terms of the phonology. They don't make a lot of sense So some there are some very high frequency words that you might tell kids at the very beginning to just memorize. But what you'll see. A lot of classrooms are long lists of words that kids are being asked to memorize and many of them can be taught by the way the sounds in the letters work. I mean there's a about eighty eighty percent or more of the English language can really be explained by fairly simple sort of sound letter correspondences. And then there's another chunk chunk of the language where it takes a little bit more explanation. Okay you gotta understand something about sort of roots and morphology and Etymology in the history of the language but you can start teaching kids that stuff when they're little like you can start explaining to them. Why is phone start with? That's a Greek word and I had a little kindergarten or come up to me and say that to me. It's Greek and it's like exciting. You know you can explain splaine this ticket so emily hang on here for a second because really what you're talking about is that there are perhaps known ways of teaching reading that we could be changing in classrooms rooms. That might have a profound effect. It might really help. Kids learn how to be better readers faster so I want to turn now to the state of Mississippi because Mississippi he is the one St in this most recent round of the nation's report card testing that actually made gains the one st out of fifty states here and so joining me now. Is Kelly Butler. She's with us from Oxford Mississippi. She's chief executive officer of the Barksdale Reading Institute it was founded in two thousand by the former. CEO of Netscape gyms. Jim Barksdale Barksdale and since then has been instrumental in shaping. Mississippi's literacy policy. Kelly Butler welcome to one point. Thank you MAGNA and Hello Emily. Molly good to hear your voice and all you're saying about reading Kelly. What did you change? What did Mississippi change to be this sort of bright spot in the nation's report card? Well I think A number of stars aligned in Mississippi One was that we passed a literacy see based Promotion Act which was the law that required reading Students in third grade to pass a reading test before they could be promoted to fourth grade and while a number of us were Concerned about that fearing that it would be The burden of nine year olds It really shined a light. I think on the problem of reading instruction and so- districts and school leaders and teachers themselves Began to ask the question. Maybe we we don't know how to teach reading effectively And through that the legislature granted fifteen million dollars to retrain teachers in the state. And I think one of the stars that lined up was a really good and strong chief state school officer who put together an effective literacy team that we worked with Closely to develop sort of professional development model for teachers in the classroom. Kelli Kelli Kelli stand by here for just a second because we do have to take a super quick break. I want to hear a lot more about how teacher training changed in Mississippi. When we come back? We're talking about the latest scores hours in the so-called national report card and why only a third of American fourth graders are supposedly proficient in reading. We'll be we're back. This is on point. This is on point. I magnin Chuck Birdie. Were talking this hour about the latest results from the so-called nations report card and Y I barely a third of American fourth graders are considered proficient in reading which means two thirds of American. Fourth graders aren't considered proficient in reading. I'm joined today by Emily. Hanford cheese a an education correspondent for APM reports. It's the documentary and Investigative Reporting Group at American public media. She's she's reported a lot on literacy issues in the United States. And I'm also joined today by Kelly Butler. She's chief executive officer at the Barksdale Reading Institute in Mississippi. The one state that actually made significant gains in literacy outcomes in the most recent nations report card so Kelly Butler before the break you were telling us about specifically what did you change in teacher training when it comes to to Educating teachers on how they teach literacy well the the program that we instituted was Th- of completely around the science of reading and One of the things that the state did I think that's different from other states is that they retain the control of the training at the state level to make sure that every teacher during the state was going to get the same body of knowledge and we instituted a professional development program that now. We've trained about Steve Thousand Teachers in the state On the science of reading and those practices are now being implemented and we've instituted a coaching model so that teachers not only learn the content of the reading instruction but they then get some hands on modeling coaching support From trained coaches at the state provides all of this was funded by the legislature But it's been done in a very uniform manner. And I think that in singularly surly is probably the the reason that we're seeing that the change what we Kelly can. I just jump in here for a second if I may forgive me for interrupting you but but I wanted to play you a moment from one of Emily's Documentaries this is one that she She put out last year called hard words. Because you you did receive. Kelly did receive some pushback in Mississippi. And I WANNA play a clip here from Stacey Reeves a faculty member at the University of Southern Mississippi who host host of the states initiative to shifting to a science based approach to reading instruction and. Here's what Stacey Reeves said. I am philosophically opposed posed to jumping on the bandwagon of the next great thing. That's going to teach every child how to learn to read Phonics Onyx for me is not that answer Kelly Butler will you responded because it seems as if a a professor reeves's saying that you know focusing being more direct instruction in phonics and with the science of reading being at the heart of what teachers do she says she says it's just jumping on the bandwagon. Well well you know. Education is filled with lots of changes and folks would just I think often if we wait. It'll this too shall pass. I think what what what we've seen though. Is this from real hard science around the around reading a what we know in Emily's already spoken very eloquently about how brain processes language Wjr And how we can rewire it to read print I think one of the points that stacey re me gives us is this notion of Philosophy Law Society and I think part of what's happened in the field of education. Unlike other professions is that we made a decision somewhere back in the forties To become a program philosophy and and I think now with the advent of so much hard science it's hard to ignore What neuroscience is teaching us about the brain and I would like for teachers educators to to claim to claim the brain as their organ that we are the engineers of how how learning happens and And that we have so much to learn from the hard science that we can no longer simply do close our doors in and and try. Try Things in classrooms and some of it works and some of it doesn't and I think what we need to get better at his is looking at applying the science to know in fact. What really really is working And she's what works best every time And we know a lot about this now and can you just tell us briefly. What difference has it made aide in Mississippi? Well I think the K.. Three level and with this coaching. That's going on across the state. We're seeing practices change and there have been some studies of how that practice has changed And and the and the Impressions that teachers have now about the work that they're doing once. They began to to apply some of these evidence based practices kids. Kids do respond and we see over and over again kind of this lightbulb experience of teachers ah saying to us. No one ever taught me that In my teacher preparation We're turning our sights now teacher preparation. And we've been working over the last twenty the years with the educator preparation programs Mississippi We've done to reviews of their work and In both cases basis we determined that the science of reading is largely missing from from those programs and I would have to say that in fairness we've tried to create. I just say space here in Mississippi for these faculty members to acknowledge that their own preparation didn't include the science of reading. So what we're really working on now. Now is to provide faculty members with professional growth in order for them to also learn the same science that that the K.. Three teachers forgetting we'll Kelly Butler chief executive officer at the Barksdale Reading Institute joining us from Oxford Mississippi. Kelly thank you so much. Thanks so much for having me in for your. You're interested in Mississippi so we're going to hear in a moment from a school of Education in Michigan. But Emily Hanford. Let me just jump back to you here for a second. Because there's something I do WanNa hit head on that Kelly mentioned here and that is There is a philosophy. That's been you know very well loved for many decades in education about you know trying to keep keep learning as joyful as possible about Providing Education for the the whole child Ray and the idea that any form or most forums comes of direct instruction where the teacher is standing there or sitting there and telling kids how to do. This letter makes this down in that letter. Makes that sound is is the kind of instruction that that kills the joy of reading and that and so that has had a lot of traction for for many many years here. Are you saying they're wrong. I I mean what's wrong with that philosophy it's at the heart of so much education. No one wants kids to not have fun learning how to read. Well a few points One one I there's no reason that good instruction of Phonics and awareness and the foundation skills of reading can't be really exciting. I don't know that it needs to be fun per se but it needs to be engaging kids need to be learning from it. I mean we are all born wanting to learn to read and little kids want want to learn to read and one of the best ways to kill. Their motivation is to start giving them books that they can't read and two kids who can't read guell early usually turn off to reading really early and the problem here is that this key thing happens you need to some sort of basic foundational skills else to be able to understand what those words say but at a certain point this thing called self teaching Kicks in so you learn to read by reading. Once you have the basics of how the alphabet works alphabetic principle down in some kids like I said get that really easily with very little instruction but some kids don't so this idea that reading instruction is GonNa Kill the motivation of kids. I really think it goes the other way around. I also think that belief belief that motivation is the most important thing to sort of preserve and sort of making it fun and joyful comes from a belief that people people will learn to read if they're motivated to read and what the science shows us is that that's not necessarily the case. You're not necessarily just going to read because you want want to. You need to be taught how to do it. You need to learn how to do it. And that's the best way to get motivated is to be able to do it. And you can go into classrooms and see it and when when those little light bulbs go off in like a little first graders head when they figure out what that word what that whole sentence on the page says. They're psyched about that. You know they're having a lot. aww Fun well I also can make one other point zippy so one of the things that I think is really important for the nation understand about Mississippi is as you said. It was the only state state in the nation to post gains on the fourth grade. Reading test they've been posting gains over several cycles of NATO now and as Kelly mentioned they've been working on this for a long time twenty not plus years. Kelly has been working on this so number one. The Nation to the lesson to the lesson to the nation is that this takes a long time but Mississippi has long been and is still the poorest state in the United States of America and yet they are making gains on the fourth grade reading tests and the kids in Mississippi are now. I'm reading at the national average kids in Mississippi in fourth grade. Read as well or better than kids in California in Texas in Michigan and eighteen other states. If I counted it up right that I think should make everyone's jaws drop we said for a long time. People in all other states could say thank God. I'm from Mississippi because if you weren't doing well in reading Mississippi was doing worse than you but they're not Mississippi is doing well is the rest of the nation now. Unlikely Anna said at the beginning. We cannot directly correlate scores to any particular policy or anything going on but Mississippi has been doing a whole bunch of different things for a long time and Emma theme is. They're teaching their teachers and they're teaching their teacher. Educators the science of reading and I know of no other state that has made that that kind of investment and that kind of concerted effort to make sure that teachers know this stuff because I've interviewed hundreds of teachers around the country now and they do not learn this stuff. It's not their fault. You can't teach what you don't know well so what I hear you saying emily. Is you think forty nine other states ought to embrace at least some form of introducing the science of reading into teacher training here so so emily hang on here for a moment because before we run out of time. I WANNA turn out a NEL Duke. A professor at the university -versity of Michigan School of Education focused on early literacy development and she joins us from Ann Arbor Michigan Professor Duke. Welcome to point. Thank you thank you for having having Magna and thank you for your patience here because this is such a rich topic it takes a while to be able to get through all the details in an important way in a meaningful way here but professor Professor Dukan word to I have you respond to something in particular that Mississippi also is doing as well that Kelly Butler mentioned and that they made the decision in that there is a third grade tested Mississippi that if children don't pass they're going to have to repeat the third grade regarding literacy now. That is pretty controversial. I just I wonder what what you think about that decision that Mississippi made sure on there a lot of states that have laws like this now and if we look at the weight of the evidence the weight of the evidence. Of course you know you're GONNA have some studies say one thing some say another. The overall weight of the evidence is that retention retention does not lead to long-term positive effects on literacy so that piece of what Mississippi did is unlikely to be what but caused or among the factors that caused the improvement. And one of the ways. You can see that. Mississippi's case they also made an have been making enormous gains in in fourth grade math achievement and yet there's no fourth grade math RETENTION BILL IN MISSISSIPPI BUT I would love to draw attention to some of the positive you move that they're making a Mississippi That are consistent with what we know from research and one of them is they investment in. Coaching Teachers Zenden providing that ongoing professional development for teachers Not Not just sending them out to do whatever they're going to do on their own with no help or support but that ongoing ongoing opportunity to become better at their practice we have a lot of scientific research studies that show Benefits of coaching both on teacher practice and more importantly on children's learning but Professor Duke. I mean the coaching in and of itself isn't enough. It's what they're being coached in. That also matters because I'm sure you could point to a lot of districts where there's a lot of literacy literacy coaching going on. But they're still having the same struggles. That's exactly right. In fact I I make a grid if you can imagine four thousand Our best scenario Dario is is where we have scientifically aligned. Content and scientifically aligned professional development practices. Unfortunately there are those other three. Celebrate if we could have as you've pointed out Bad content and good professional development practices. That's not GonNa Work Coaching on the wrong things. The the flip side also won't work if we provide good content teachers. But we don't do it in a way that actually moves practice. That's a problem too. Sometimes we talk about drive by PD. this idea that you know teachers will go to a one day workshop. You know once a year and that somehow that will move practice we know from research that it won't you do need that ongoing wing high quality professional development with high quality content. So Professor Dookie Foamy. We're running out of time here and I and I should sort of brought this back down right into the level classroom earlier. You're say we're in. We're in a first or second grade classroom here. What is reading instruction supposed to look like? Ideally yeah great question so It's been pointed out by your guests. One of the things we WANNA focus on for sure what we call those foundational skills. That's fine a logical awareness. phonics it's understanding how print works and although we don't know exactly how many minutes a day to spend on that. Most experts recommend between thirty and sixty minutes a day. That's focused focused on that so you might ask what else is happening over the course of a school day So another thing that we need to spend a lot of time on with young children is developing their content knowledge so their understanding science social studies their vocabulary related to academic topics We know from scientific research that does it was also have a big impact on literacy levels and reading achievement so that's a focus we also need to teach kids about taxed so for example. There's quite a bit of a scientific research that if you teach children how text is structured for example that sometimes it compares and contrasts a topic or or sometimes it presents a problem and a solution if you teach those kinds of structures Two children above and beyond teaching content. It raises I'm reading comprehension achievement as well. I'm just giving you a a sense of the many different things that need to happen. Over the course of a school day in order to develop Strong readers and writers so so phonics instruction content in terms of science and social studies and art and then also skills and Sir recognizing how text Oughta work. Sounds like a great combination. Emily Hanford. We've got thirty seconds left and what could have been a five hour conversation here. But what do you think the lesson is for. The rest of the nation is so many kids. Kids continued to struggle to read. I feel like what I'm hearing is we can do this. I think we can and I think what nell Duke is talking about is essential. I mean it is about helping teachers understand this big scientific body of research and helping them implemented like giving them the coaching giving them the support and giving them good curriculum materials. There's a lot of pieces to this puzzle and we just haven't had all of those pieces in place and I think we just need to look carefully at what's going on especially in k. k. through two and learning to read continues after great too but especially in in Grade K.. Through to see to do we have those pieces in place. Well Emily Hanford is education correspondent respondent for a PM reports the documentary and Investigative Reporting Group at American public media. We have links to her tremendous documentaries about literacy in America on point radio DOT DOT Org. Emily thank you so very much. Thank you so much for having me. And they'll do professor at the University of Michigan School of Education. Thank you professor to thank you now. I made me chuckle. Bardy this point.

See THAT FOOTPRINT. Look look more closely right. There's something onto the ice. Give me the act. Let me see tooth claw back. Oh my God it's a toenail war. It must've fallen from one of the creatures. Look did you see how thickness of Nacre is. How Glossy Siri does mother Pearl? Not exactly the same. But SIMILAR MOLLUSCS MAKE MOTHER. Appel the minerals hardened to form a layer that protects them from parasites. It's incredibly strong. Durable the formation of this material is one of the great mysteries of the natural world. I'd say this toenail pretty damn serious. His conical structure is due to the unusual shape of the creatures second toe the Haluk. Switches that signature trait bigfoot misnomer but understandable. When you look at the size of this toenail never seen anything like has because there isn't anything like it's no one has ever recovered a piece of these creatures before ever. This is the first must be worth a fortune. Putting a price on this would be like estimating the value of the moon. He can't be done. It's priceless let me hold it. It's dense and extremely durable. My guess is that it's very similar. If we were to send this to a lab we would find the chemical breakdown to be a mixture of inorganic and organic materials mineralized tissues and Collagen Nicole position of the toenails of the iceman closer to elephant tusks. Toenails are real one hundred percent. This proves it. You know that Real Bright. He saw that with your own eyes. Yeah but this is the first time I've actually touch something from one of the creatures could even seeing them yesterday hearing voices also like a dream. Did you reduction gibbons treatise on the chemical properties of crypto? Of course. What did you think about the series that crypt DNA can alter the chemical composition of other life forms by their proximity? I think he's mad. Genius put mad. Crew Studies pretty convinced her convincing but not definitive PESCA scientific consensus on cryptic before we claim they have magical powers. It isn't magic. It's physics the cells. Certain cryptos adapt in ways that are in line with molecular mutation but at a pace. That's different from other life phones. They adapt to nature better than we saved. It's possible in theory. What are you doing got any string in that? Pack making a big enough loop so you can wear it around your neck. Like a necklace. How're you doing back on? You asked me earlier by. I'm here okay. I get it you can handle the cold. This is the answer. I'm sorry. How did it happen from the look of their scars? We in an accident. You could call. It suffered immensely kind of accident doesn't let like a simple injury. A Wolf Wolf did that to me here in Canada Wolf impossible. They're extinct. I really should have died to be honest. I was alone but I was lucky. And one hundred found an hour or so after it was attacked. You heard me whimpering in pain. He took me to his cabinet. Kept me alive until they could get to a hospital. We're working with other agents. They were there to get information. That a wolf pack had been cited in the mountains as you can imagine. We didn't believe I needed to see for myself. I wasn't careful to think I needed to be begin to imagine the difficulty of recovering from that after I'd healed I didn't WanNa go back to crypto. See I went the opposite direction. University a monastery life of contemplation and prayer joined the Franciscan brotherhood. I became a monk. I don't seem like the spiritual type. It's hard to pick to you in a row. I ended up leaving. The monastery was in. The northernmost regions of the mountains are. Wolves can get as big as lions. Sometimes it's heaviest two hundred dollars. I think I read a paper about this. About how these oversize walls had all the classic properties of Lichen through. Yes the Wolfman Half Wolf half human. I wrote that paper. How are you saying that a Werewolf did that to you? Never heard neither our team was in northern Slovakian. It happened so many local legends about creatures in that part of the world so many old wives tales still that were salted lead that send us into the western carpathians pictures reliable videos and so on and to be totally honest with you. I could feel the thing there in those mountains sense. It probably sounds crazy but I knew he was there. I've been following pack a big wolves huge beautiful black wolves see anywhere outside of those mountains house tracking them log my field notes doing what we do and then I started to come across strange things. One morning I found a burned down. Fire were bones from an animal suggesting that that fire had been used for cooking meat. Strangest of all all around the site with those same strange prints no human principal. Think a wolf was capable of creating and using fire. Sounds fucking insane. I know accept something attacked me. Something came me from behind. Couldn't get a good look at it. It hit me hard. Knocked me down from that point on. I lost consciousness. Could it be man not a werewolf and according to the doctor who treated me that was tooth lodged in one of my ribs? Tastes broke off all the things biting into me. It's probably why it took off and left me alive. Yeah this is it similar to a wolf's tooth but after it was analyzed we found. It was too big too sharp to belong to any of the WOLF SPECIES. We've ever documented the necklace. If you've ever Dr Self what you saw hold onto it agent. Bright was right. Belief is the only thing that will get us through this bright bright. You Must Remove Water. Come on suit up better better titan about the need to keep your leg animated to hold on a little off either salon to the dried food. I brought this Grima. No eat it all up or go out and try to scavenge something as soon as the sun comes up for live until I'm not dying. This isn't the end for Die Yourself. This is for nothing I know. Stop It. Stop Moving. Promise me you record everything. We saw everything you experienced. Janet MC record of the Truth. I PROMISE. Start from the beginning. I was fifteen years old when I encountered the iceman that July we were in Komiya a small rustic Italian village at the highest point of the Asta Valley. It wasn't the most popular village but when snow falls more than two hundred days a year. Skiing was one of the few ways to make the best of things but one day in one of my mad dashes down the mountain. I thought I saw a hawk flying in the sky. It was such an unusual even impossible site. I will never know if there was actually a bird or not. I hit a rock and fell. I wasn't seriously injured but I had twisted my ankle. I tried to get down the mountain that it was impossible. And so I found an exposed outcropping of rock pulled myself onto it and waited. It was midday many hours before dusk and I knew that once my parents realized I was missing. They would search for me. I wasn't afraid until the creatures stepped from the forest. It arrived like the Sun gliding over sheet of ice a thing so weit and ethereal that it seemed at first glance little more than a swell of light in the wind for a solid minute. I watched it thinking that I must be imagining it but as it came closer I understood that it was a man or a kind of man tool very tall and sin with skin so pale that it seemed to glimmer in the light I had no category in my mind for this creature other than human being but as he approached I began to understand that this man was not one of us but another life form altogether. He was covered in fine. Whitehead the glimmer. I had seen at first. Glance revealed itself to be the brilliant refraction of ice crystals frozen in his hair. I would like to learn that a particular oil coach. The skin and fur of the creatures giving the Shimmer that in certain exposures seems to sparkle like glitter because if the creature is lit from within approach to looked at me. His Lou is enormous his expression for as if he were fascinated by me as I was with him. He said something. I couldn't understand. How would later no this to be a greeting in the ICEMAN language? The sound of his voice was soothing. Friendly I slid forward on the rock pushing myself toward him as he approached when he held out his hand. I took it. He carried me into the forest. My life would never be the same I hope you enjoyed a sippy. Said and thank you for listening. If you'd like to help us continue to produce episodes of Cryptos and other audio dramas of this quality.

#39 Self-Awareness is a Mindset

"Welcome to the mindset for life podcast. This is Bethany Year coach from Dr Be Coach Dot Com coaching with power purpose practical tools to help you show up with confidence. To The podcast today I'm so excited to visit with you about you and the amazing person that you are. Let's talk today about your clarity. Thinking clearly and seeing clearly things as they really are could not be more important than it is right now. It's very difficult to know what we are good at what we should let go of what our main priorities should be. What the right answer is many times we're conflicted. So many things are coming at us from so many directions. I have coached individuals who are looking for the right answers about themselves about their lives and about their work. Many times the right answers are right there inside them all the time have you ever had that experience? Have you ever felt that you really knew what the right answer was. But. You had these nagging doubts. What if I'm wrong what if someone else sees something? I. Don't see what if there's more information or more truth about this situation if I only had that. Maybe, then I could take a step forward. I'd feel differently maybe then I'd be super confident and just do it already whatever that thing is. I'm here to tell you. There's so much. You can do to get this kind of clarity. The. Very first thing is self awareness self awareness is huge. It's a big area. It's all about who you are your traits, your capacity, your abilities, your history, your emotions, all of those things. No one can be the expert on your self awareness except for you, you see the inside and the outside view. Of course because you are you, you're very subjective about seeing yourself many times you have thoughts from the past that come in and actually stand as barriers to who you can become in the future. There is so much that we bring with us. There's so much. We think about that can actually cause trouble for us as we're trying to see most clearly. I want to share with you today some very clear and effective ways to create better self awareness. So that, you can become all that you want to be so that you can be more confident so that you not relying on too many outside sources for the real truth that you have already going on on the inside. So, let's talk about five different ways. That we can come to this realization. And be more confident with you. The first one is a little bit contrary to my upbringing and that is meditation. I come from a background where prayer would be the preferred method of. Focusing, connecting to a higher power. Transcendence, and separating from all the competing priorities. But Meditation has, benefits Meditation in its simplest form is just the practice of improving your moment by moment awareness it's about being present in the current moment. And noticing the sensations and thoughts are having right now. There are many meditation exercises you can do. I wear a fitbit charge on my wrist. It tracks all of my movements tracks. My sleep does a lot of really great things and one of the things it also has on it is a short relaxation button so I can press this button. And I could turn on the two minute relax track and it's going to buzz my wrist just to slow down my breathing. If I breathe at the speed of that exercise. And I think about letting go all the thoughts that are stressing me out. And just close my eyes. That short meditation moment is very clarifying. It brings clarity to everything that's going on with myself and with everything outside of me. In a meditation exercise like this, we can consider what we really need to be focused on what's working what's getting in the way and where we can just let go of things. There are so many things on our minds that don't need to be there. A short meditation can help if you look in the podcast notes for this episode, you'll see links to a few of these resources and they can help you with some guided practice. Second Make a list. There's a book out there called the checklist manifesto an in it. It's discussed that these doctors are surgeons who are completing procedures have checklists and they do them thoroughly all the time. One of the reasons we use checklists is to de personalize it and make things more objective. So when we have a checklist, no matter how many times we've done the thing. We can look it over again, add to it, subtract from it and take the worry part off of our brains. I. Like to use an actual paper planner I put my checklists in physical notebook. I know other folks who really hate writing things down. Virtual tools are great for that. You can even dictate on a phone. You can use. Devices like your Alexa at home. There are so many places and things that you can use as a tool for a checklist. In a Hanford Business Review article. Li Lou the CO leader of the Tenement Square student demonstration, and now a highly respected investor is quoted talking about Benjamin Franklin Apparently, Benjamin Franklin can balance sheet of the assets and liabilities of his personal traits. By writing these down. Any new strength he thought he could learn from someone and self perceived weaknesses he focused on his network of character growing himself over time. That's something we all can do about areas we would like to grow in. Changes we'd like to make but most importantly, our assets, the good things and the strengths we have that make us unique. So, many high and achievers and leaders that I have met with that I know personally and many that I've coached have these problems not being able to clearly see their own strengths and understanding their limitations as well. We all need to know our strengths and limitations. A checklist or a balance sheet can help but writing it down, takes it away from the worry center and puts it into place of action. Third. Take. PSYCHOMETRIC, tests. So. I'm really a fan of this. My first and most favorite one is the exercise of determining your own values coming up with really your top five values that sort of rule your world. Figuring out what you value most is really critical to your happiness because it derives most of your decisions. When your values are threatened or if you work in a place where you can't really live those values, you're going to be unhappy you're not GonNa know why until you identify what you actually care about and where you're not able to get those things. psychometric tests could be things like personality profile. They could be aptitude test of various kinds. I'm a big Fan of EIA character strengths assessment. This one helps you to buy true character strengths that make you unique. And when you can identify your strengths, you can learn how to best utilize these and leverage them to become more successful in what you WANNA do. Chances. Are Your character strengths actually line up to your values in some way? I also really condone personality profiling. I understand we're not all in a box were not necessarily a type. But what you can learn from a personality test. It really speaks volumes for what's going to work for you. A personality test like sixteen personalities dot com also listed and linked in the notes from this podcast. One of these can help you understand why certain things rub you the wrong way why you seek out certain kinds of experience. There's another profile that can change over time. It's called the any team. There's also a link to that in the podcast notes. This one actually helps you identify why you might be struggling with throughout your life that's kind of holding you back and what your tendencies might be at gives you some insights and helps you to make some decisions. A fourth area for self awareness. is to ask people around you. You can get feedback from your peers, your friends, your mentors, your family members, your neighbors, you can ask them. What would you say is my best attribute or if I could only pick one goal to work and I really need to fix the biggest. Problem that I'm facing what would that be? What would you say it is what is overarching kind of hits me in every area Of course, you want to be ready for that because sometimes what we hear is really not something we're ready to hear. So. If you're going to ask friends have an agenda, have your question formed carefully and brace yourself. You might hear something you don't don't know about yet. And then lastly. Get feedback at work. Someone I spoke to recently was very excited that they were planning to participate in the three sixty feedback process in their workplace that means their peers, their managers, subordinates, all these people are going to give them feedback about what their strengths are, how they are a manager, how there is a leader where they can improve. This kind of feedback is usually based on some kind of assessment where survey responses are gathered some free responses as well, and all of that feedback is gathered for like three or more people. So it doesn't really specifically identify exactly who gave it, but you can get a sense of really how you're showing up or at least how other people are experiencing you. And when you see themes coming up again and again from one person to the next. It's probably true. These things are listening detail in a Harvard Business Review Article. I have also linked that in the podcast notes. In case you're interested in further reading, as well as many different assets that I've provided for you. You can click and you can try them out and get a really better sense of who you are what do you bring to the table that you can? No. Really these are things that make me who I am. They make me unique and I can be the expert on this area of my life and stop leaning on everyone else to tell me what am I good at not? This will give you confidence. It will help you to move forward and let go of some of the conflict within and it will help you to be able to take comments. People give you with a grain of salt so to speak or rather in context. While I hope you will enjoy exploring greater self awareness. This week here's to being the best version of you.

Can you watch an America's funniest home video if you know the person really got hurt or do you need mentally. I don't think there's a lot of people who send around like videos on America's funniest home videos, but just like tiktok type videos of. Things happening like that where you're like that person just fell on their face. I remember when that when that woman the the the news reporter came out and start speaking gibberish and like Bertie was the worst. Stroke or something that everyone start sending that video around the minute it happened like Oh my God I was just watching TV and saw this, and then we all like a lot of us were like, Hey, that person might have just had a stroke. This is not cool and then she was fine. So now it's funny to Sabre Tation. You know this one clip that I really like wait Oh, is the word she said, yes, she was like. Burr tation she was shoes she was reporting for an award ceremony. And she I can play it if you want. Yeah. I I'm not sure if. I'll play you onto. It makes me think of the Paula Abdul Clip. where she was on some radio show. And she was it seemed like he was on drugs. Okay. Ready. Are we ready? Yeah, man. Here we go. Well, let me prepare myself. Okay we go. This is a prayer a report and she's fine and it was she does she she got checked out by doctors. She doesn't know what happen and does know what it is but this is an it was after an award show, which is why we were all watching it and everyone side centers. Live at the Staples Center with highlights and backstage coverage we're seeing for the very first time to read. Well, very, very heavy heavy burr tation. Tonight we had a very Davison by let's go terrace stays in. Terrifying. So, much worse than I thought it was going to be. It's in the look on her face. She's confused she why she saying what you're saying it's it was very. was really scary but she's fine. Okay. Well, here's mine. This is. From the I guess it's a it's a British pop group called little mix, and there's this video that my friends and I always like to reference because this there's this clip where they're trying to do different accents and they go. Okay and so this girl tries to. She does not like this being played by the way. Well, of course, not Do you want me to find it in play through the same or a and what's what's the grapes little mix Jamaican And then I did my own version which can actually did last night while all of her fans tape yesterday. Oliver fans by the way anytime you post this they'll reply she doesn't like it when you post this. Okay so like this. Lean into it because it's fucking hilarious. Vice so it's this girl group. And she's There they all draw cards of an accent they're they're trying to do. Draw of the accident you'll do and she gets Jamaica'd and so this is her trying to put that in there. DOC At her head. She's like Spanish. Here, one more time. Yeah Oh. Good. She's like. Can trying to the. What are you playing? Around what? This isn't GonNa be like Chris. Joel Evans where you're GONNA show us a picture of your penis. Guard, that Pussy. Going what was that that'd be doing that I was doing. I what? What happened with Evans? I did not investigate they'll went. On. Doing it tweet and he posted a picture. Lung knows a livestream play. Wrong. He was a livestream he was on and he was going through. Twelve years ago. He was trying to show a picture from his phone on a livestream. He brought up his photo album, and so you could see like a select like nine photos or whatever, and one was a picture of his Dinger Dogar Okay and one was a was a picture of Captain America from one of the movies that he had put. He had put on there with text at guard that Pussy. Obviously. No he wasn't trying to show those. He was looking for something in his phone, Oh my God he brought up his photos and the photos that everyone saw were those why would you? Why would you ever put your? Dignity and your phone. Why would you ever don't don't bill your phone burn your phone don't go putting it around on a live. Picture. Food. Around on a lie. But backs. Okay. So back to my original question, can you watch a video? CanNot see that Dick. Pussy no because I was talking to my mom the other day about the the show holy, which has become a recent favorite during the summer and she was saying like. She finds it hard to watch if she thinks people are getting hurt and and she said, the worst one is that. One where they get shocked I don't know if you've seen it but I've never seen it does feels like something I should have seen. All Great. So but but there's one hole where if you miss the whole, you get shocked tell me about it and they have these. It's like it's like Dr Frankenstein kind of setup where they have like electrical switches, and then they have people with putters who are supposedly conducting the current and they put in this fake electricity current effect. So it's not hurting anyone. So it's it's a mild shock. Operation Yeah. But my mom is like. You see the huge electrical current on their own special effects. Show. Really. Makes me nervous. Game Game. This is the other one my mom brought up. Taking too much delight in it. She she loves watching them get this. This is her version of. Storytelling before we started that. I can't remember Oh. Something but the. The some of the things they do on that show like look really painful at they'll throw things people's faces or they fall really seemingly really far and I don't know what they're falling into and I'm sure it's safe because obviously. Can. You know I dated a woman who was on a game show talk about this I think we did where they. Yeah, it's a fake shadow, but it's so confusing my brain's opioid data this woman who on a game show where if you lost you the floor opened up and and it looked it looks terrifying when you see it and makes you laugh and she was like now you fall about this far. That's weird. Onto a bunch of pills. Like it's like two feet or. Ellen's show also sometimes, they'll have a thing where it's your laying in a harness down like mission impossible and you're like being raise the natural how I would describe face down go ahead. Face, down But they were they'll like slam you down. It's like a VAT of pudding and stuff like over. Own. As. Rack. So back we Record is I reckon episode was out of. Jail could turn the. Kovin. Lori Loughlin. Horrible. Bullshit where she got to pick what? Prison Man. I. Love to pick a prison. It's just reading I've already picked them out. Yeah. You guys got to check by prison pitchers page. There's. Favorite prison track your prison. If, you ever get sent to prison the one would go to. Oh Terrifying? As a kid I remember having a bad reaction to certain kinds of slapstick in comedies. Three stooges stuff for most of the three stooges. Stuff is like it's just silly cartoonist and they have this out. On Mister show that we were trying to write a sketch of like if three stooges was real the consequences physicals. Yeah something like that I remember one one, three stooges thick gag I remember was like somebody. Like grabbing somebody's nose with a pair of scissors right? It's not funny looking horrible. Think about remember there was a Pink Panther movie that I saw when I was a kid I saw in the theater as a Peterson Inspector Cousteau inspector clues Oh. Yes. I've heard of these and he. He has this this enemy, which is the the chief inspector whatever played by this Guy Herbert Lom and so bad things are always happening to the chief inspector who hates clue once again fired at one point? I remember. He slips on something at the top of a stairwell and the guy goes so far up in the air. And then he drops out of sight lands on the stairs and it's not funny. Not, funny. Guy. would be paralyzed buster. Keaton do all the stuff he was doing. Well, we actually did take a toll on his body, but it's he did all ranch chase crazy practical things. He did somebody somebody falls? Got Him addicted to cocaine? I remember taking a slapstick physical comedy course. and. They were always saying like the what's not funny is the fall. It's the getting up and selling the you're hurt or something like showing your okay and it bothered you it makes it funny. So. I get that. Yeah the fall should be fun too I. Always I cannot watch. Eddie does of people falling on the ground because I've. I've fell recently on the ground and it fucking hurry. In. The House. I was I was looking at our camera and I saw cool et left the gate open and then also front door and our dog started to it's a lot going on our dog started to like go out the door and so I I was wearing socks and we had when we moved in, we'd have the floor is done and so I stood up and we know and then immediately my legs win and I fell on my side and I was fucked up for awhile. Follow you've battery eight Paul Fallen Follow Tompkins. Tompkins. No I have. Not, I can't remember the last time I fell I have tripped a bunch and almost following. So is that a trip in an stumble stumbled stumbled exactly I cannot tell you how often I have thought not even with tripping but when am I going to have my next horrible fall because it will happen? It will happen I always say I always picture myself like falling or knocking my teeth out or all that kind of stuff. But I had a fall when I was in London for Holmes and Watson and I, was staying in this apartment that had. Flat And it was told me back. It was like it was kind of place that was like really. At first when I walked in, I was like, wow. Oh, and then like the longer I lived there the more creeped out I was like. One of my first I was completely alone like most of the time for like months there and I felt on these carpeted stairs like my socks slipped and I fell so hard I cock. And it hurts I just like when you're alone and you fall like I just was like Bear basically saying et. Straightforward into the bedroom and fell face for for the Omar. Your. There's nothing to do besides just like be sad that happened. Did you have this kind of reaction? Oh I was going to. Let. Yeah. When I was over at my parents. House recently I got a stern talking to you because I was eating at Barstool at the bar and I left the Barstool. Not Completely. percent pushed in and she was like you're living with old people this week dare going to trip on this and wow, how old are your parents? Forty One Yeah I just falling is the worst I just don't like it. It's terrifying. It's so scary. We had the first The last place we live before our last story. See live before our house now. We have this apartment where. It was like somebody had flipped it. You know. So there was a lot of stuff. There was a little shoddy about it. which would discovered until after we lived there for a while but that's the worst thing about that kind of you know because you're at first great and then the longer they're like this, every little thing is horrible. Living set. Yes. I get. Religion. US. Like that I think that's like one of the I think that's such a cheap gross way to try to make money because doing the worst job you are you're new to a really. Well. One thing I'm saying picking out all the worst shit is a matt, even if they do it good. Stuff like it's just there's no point you're going to do it again. Well, the one thing they're really splurged on. Were these tubs. That had this really wide wall. You know I don't know what else to call it like the wall you know. The. Yet. Yeah. Like if you wanted to have a nice luxurious bath and put candles. Okay but then. We'll like one inch wide nother. The milita was fine but it was getting in and out like you had to. Out So.

Delivered, it wasn't one of the new Bohemia was. Martigny Raquel. Never. Heard any liquor. Well we I was with a group of friends learn. How would you start with the friends? We were trying to think of a true guilty pleasure song because as you as you. As an adult amount. Now Wasn't adult. It's like, no I'm not guilty about that I think it's good that funds I, know but it's like it was very hard to think of a song that is kind of a bad like you know it's bad. Like said, what did you end up saying about bad he? Really. Bad guilty pleasures. Those those are all guilty. that. Have now done an episode with. Stroke we go. Thanks to you. Both have broken the seal. I. Think that was the that was the one we came up with at the very end where it's not. It's not really good. About. Pop Pop music. That's. Song all right Lauren what he wants us I think like some cool things to have would be a skylight. Oh, an opening one or. -sarily but just like in a bathroom. COOL WANNA. See those birds. Light coming in. I think The peepers. Yeah I mean it does creamy out to think about it night like people putting drums over your skylight or like A. Lucifer Standing Tub and shower and one bathroom see could choose and it's fun. It's Nice I mean I think it's really what you mean like a separate. Bread so that you could take a bath or shower. Yes. Yes. Those are some the yeah. I think a lot of people have it I don't that'd be so cool to have a skylight it'd be like you'd be able to see the sun sometimes. Untiring up had. Always think about it because it was so pretty what did when you were young what? What was there? You're open book where where it was like Oh my God, we used to say live-and-let-live. All my that's what lane no you rich people. Well I had friend whose whose family. With a rich. kind of suddenly did not have. The belly the. Father was a pro bono. I don't know I know all the. Eventually. There was some countries charge. that. was going on for like. Extremely long time decades that somehow ended with him getting out. I'm. Sorry. This is going on too long. I need that Bono but. He was a pro bono. Always, helping the little guy or. Doing that one case and everything else provo nervous. Yeah Yeah. Some. Some big breakthrough, and so we got a lot of money. So they they built this really beautiful huge home and auto Yeah. So whenever I think about. Like that kind of rich. Regions they had an indoor pool. Built it all themselves from scratch like the up with it all from scratch. So they chopped down the lumber and chopped it down and they move into bricks and. Bricks incredible. They Indoor Pool should've vented that they also had a really I loved going there, and it was just like a really cool house but they had. All the phones that they got all that Bang, and Olufsen. Or Bang, all of center whatever it's a very excellent Sir landlord you I'm GonNa look it up. But there. Lauren I.

It was great and we really we love the show like we've got really invested in it. You have to really be in the mood to be like, I'm going to put my phone exact and you can invest it because you care about the plot. But yeah, it's so hard. I'll be watching shows and then go okay I have literally no idea what's Going to a movie theater is sometimes really good because you can't take your phone out because you're rude.

I every once in a while watching one of these renovation shows and they'll do a secret passageway and it's like God damn. It does seem really my friend, Michael WHO's a museum musician and composer Fulton. Has. Myth. He. After years and years and years of meaning to do it finally redesigned his home studio and the door is a fake bookcase. fucking best but it. Hard into spring. Sure well then. Old Old Scooby do's and stuff like that. You think. They didn't have a secret about all of it but bookcase door am I getting paid? You might be I think they did have a bookcase in and frank's. Attic Room I went to the house but I was really jess you there. She was out. But I? AM. You really shut lag tap Anne Frank's house because I only had two days Amsterdam and I was like I gotta go there and Fuck a hooker. GotTa. Get. My Hash was just. Really wanted to do it.

Other word. Yeah. Yes. Right. So, the original bookcase can see. The hiding place. And very fun excuse me has been a part of the answering cow since its opening nine hundred cares however the condition of the bookcase has visibly deteriorated today. The bookcase has a partial glass covered to prevent further damage. Good good because that's the way to do it. That's the way to money for Nothin'. jigs for. Free. I think, this is interesting. The original bookcase visitors enter the secret annex through the narrow pass the movable bookcase too many people visiting the answering causes emotional experience a try to imagine what it must've been like in for Laurie. Reidy fuckers. Whatever anyway He move on Anti. Kaos. Where where would you want your secret passageway to be for an office a library or for I think I saw one that was to like. A clause. That's right. There was this closet there was this shy. Hooked no no. No in the in the closet in the walk in closet there was also a secret passageway that we do. That took you to like the kitchen or something. I knew someone who had a panic room hidden clause Wasn't Jimmy Foster. But. That's I. Almost am scared of the idea of having a panic because then. It kind of makes you think I might have to go in there at some point in time we have a panic button that cool up said she was going to tell me because it's by my bed and I'm in charge of it, but I still don't know how doesn't show me what it is. Okay. Every once in a while in my house I hear this weird loud bell is that you guys? I can. Wakes you up. A bill. Was Me which I'm not that Earth quake how my guy just literally got to sleep in the previous three minutes. And I was in it. Was In sleep and so when it happened I, was like God. The fucking dog's jumping on the bed. And then cool up grabs me. As if. As if we were GONNA die, she wanted to be holding me while it happened. And Yeah, that's. Scary natural impulse. I was standing lossing in the bathroom and Mike was standing in the catching the dance like. We were talking. About the museum I was doing it right. Next to the fridge and I have a couple of things on top of the fridge, and then he was like we were standing talking casually and then that we are casual at home when. It's not. and. You have a fridge in the bathroom of course, and we're dressed for dinner standing there like. Ten, fifteen feet apart and you guys are keeping ten fifteen. Be We always just to be very clear There floor was rumbling other to the ground for. Earthquake stuff but I mean it felt like. So confusing your brain I have no one had asked you to get ready to. Crown don't work this way. I haven't even theory instant earthquake in like. Five years I've been out of town for a couple of the ones really but so then the everything above his head was shaking and it was that realization as you're looking at, we were like Oh. Oh Oh wow. You guys. You realize what's happening. It's like almost ending but always going to run to him and then I stopped because I thought maybe that was dangerous but I stopped in the doorway which was an accident but I think that's good. So. Accent? COME WITH Why is not gonna be that's bad. You're not supposed to use the doorway don't do it keeps changing also. T, here's just the tip though if you're in bed, cover your head and neck with pillows and stay in bed. The ceiling crumbles or something happens the ceiling crumbling men. In. The Whittier one. I was not therefore it but but I had roommates who were living next to like apartment buildings that lake. I moved here right after the Northridge Earthquake in ninety four and the city it was like a month or two after and Everything was still like. It looked like a movie set. It was crazy. Thank just demolish just big cracks in buildings and he as running everywhere. On Cod Coffee Cup that shouldn't have been framed. Some people died a lot of people moved after that and a lot of people left town after that. We are all back. We're just like in your face Johnny was asleep. I was in the living. Every time he mentioned. I want to sing it and I've curbed that impulse. Time why that's unlike you I know but I because what would happen continuously on show the now it will. I was in the living room. Watching TV and I remember what you're watching. No I don't as Nineteen ninety-four is probably oh no. I still thought you're talking about the nervous I've known since nineteen, ninety, four I. Guess it doesn't make sense but at the same time, it does it kind of does it doesn't And I've experienced this has happened a lot of times where JANEA has been a bed. And I've been in the other room still away our bed in my bed. My valley has just left. He's GonNa work on my clothes for the morning i. Remember this couple that I knew this guy through Improv like when I was. Close Yeah frazzled. Grizzled-looking when I was like twenty and he nineteen and he was like. In his late twenties or thirties I don't know how old he was but he was he seemed much older at the time. Yeah but he was married and his. Wife had two separate bedrooms. Oh Yeah for there and he was like, Hey, it how. It. I. Mean Not Understanding. Her Room and then I go to bed. He didn't. He didn't tell me since I do remember that I. Feel like I feel like I. It's I'm not dying to have separate bedrooms but I feel like, I, if we had enough space. Yeah, I had a refund. I think the hard thing. Yes I. Do you have nights where you're like I'm GONNA sleep over. Here. Because if you haven't earlier call yeah. If you have to be if you have to like get up in the dark or something like just go in this other room and sleep girlfriend snored so loud that it. You became. Well, it would wake me up. At Night Sleep in a different room I'm no it was very tempting though because he was just like Oh my God this is unbearable sometimes. So I, get how it happens. But these days you can get a sleep study in. My little brothers nor like crazy we shared a room for a while and he he he was like that. Like yell snoring where it's so loud. What is it? It's Just no how it would be so loud sound of storing, but it's Off The charts. Yeah and we would go through this thing every night where I would I would like yell to wake him up like Mark Mark. And you go. Would I'd say. You're snoring. and. He'd say again but and I would say turn on your side or something. And then. showed up. and. Every night. God. Yeah I I used to like nudge or whatever and she knew. She knew. she had to. Tape coup. Up Snoring. Oh it's not a comment point not a common thing but I thought it was so funny how loud it was for whatever reason it was happening I was like, okay I got to take this and. It was pretty funny but. But I'm a really light sleeper. So stuff like I I didn't know what to do about it, and then suddenly I was like. Investigators like get a sleep mask get a sound machine. Those things now I usu- usually as a sleep mask and I just got a sound machine and I. Love It. I Fall Asleep too heavy rain every night and it's My God. It's so amazing. I sleep so much deeper even though I usually sleep pretty well I'm like knocked out and my neighbors can be really loud. So I don't hear them at all. It's kind of amazing. You'll learn you were focusing ocean sounds okay. So I've tried oceans now you're ocean. I have one that's called thunder by the sea. So it's the ocean and thunderstorm at the same time. It's. Thunder down under where it's just guy stripping. Just, the sound. Oiling. Music just. Oily guys. We. got this alarm clock that's called the hatch and it's like a little bit. Like from lost hemisphere. Numbers every twenty one minutes. But why I was late today because I, there's certain things about that. So you get up late you new tumblr out of bed struggled to the kitchen. I had woken up at eight, but I then set my alarm again for eight forty and so it would be on time and. Go look up nine thirty so I did something wrong with the alarm 'cause I it's like through your phone APP I don't fully understand some parts of it, but you missed scheduled the hatch. Yeah. But it's really funny 'cause it lights up all these different colors pickled color you wanted to be when it when it wakes you up and then it has all these sounds and meditations can fall asleep desert sound like. Yes. And I FALL ASLEEP INCENTIVE Beila my leg. This thing which I haven't gotten into yet but it's like you could set your lights in a like a routine for you. So you'll be like thirty minutes of reading light and the light will fade and the sound will come on of your rain on one likes this. For, bad. Yeah. The one thing I'm finding tricky about is I have the habit now of by phone in the kitchen at night so I don't look back. I need to set things on the hatch from my phone I'm finding that. This. Just lost lost the other night and you're talking about. I just knew you know actually I would watch all lost I.

I can't get into that sort of. I guess wish fulfillment or whatever I can't. I, can't get like people say about succession what they like the. Rich people getting to be miserable and it's like, yeah but it's style entourage. Consequences one season that was actually kind of that either there one season that was kind of good where Vinnie like was not a popular actor anymore and he was like a fascinating season where he was really struggling and I remember the final episode of season you remember this. Lauren thick. They call me go by the way. Scorsese. Wants you to be in his new movie.

Episode 64: Is Semi-Retirement the Key to a Happy Retirement?

"Welcome to your retirement solution podcast imagine the value in knowing exactly what day you could retire and have the income you want it for the rest of your life. Listen on to explore the strategies that are designed to set you on track to living your happily ever after in retirement now onto the show. Hello and welcome to another retirement solution podcast today we're talking to Tom Black one of the financial planners at the retirement solution in past podcasts. Your team has talked about taking a practice retirement before you retire. Gyms talked about that could be anywhere from three weeks, but it's really has to be the longest vacation that you've ever taken. I want to ask you today about semi retirement. How often do you see people semi retire. We don't what we see a lot. Actually. See this a lot and what happens is. Typically it's the guy, but but could be both they've been working. They decided hey! I'm ready to. I'm ready to retire. And they do they take the longest vacation of ever taken their lives. It's a month long or maybe even six weeks, and what happens after that they look around go I have been working for the last forty years of my life. I don't know what to do with myself. I've organized the garage twice. And I'm ready to start on the kitchen, but my wife says if I reorganized its kill me. But, but mostly it's this point in which a lot of these of realizing. Maybe I don't really WanNa be completely retired. I have a client right now. Due to a work situations earlier this year. was laid off and he thought well. What am I going to do and they've kind of been practicing retirement while he's been working for a new job. And as we've created their plan, what we found is he actually doesn't have to go back to work as an HR guy. That's where he's been all his life getting up at early mornings to to go to work. He, really liked to work. Maybe the more in the communications area, and so we will be realizing this. He now has the ability. To go do what he wants for the rest of his life. He, has the money set aside? To work anymore, so it's now this whole new world that he never thought about it never it never crossed his mind. He had to do something else besides what he's always done for the last thirty five years now this is part of the go go years, but can move into the slow. Go Years, right? Let's talk about a little bit about what you see there. Well, you know what's interesting is when you start to see you know you've been on a bunch of vacations. You've done some of the things. There's meaning that comes to people's lives. I have a gentleman who is in his early seventies that in my world on eastern. WASHINGTON? He's able to do some contract work. And he loves it. He's able to to still be meaningful in an area that he was an expert and and develop a lot of a lot of skills in to still be meaningful on that world and make a difference. and. He's doing it on his own tied on schedule. On my only winner anyway, I might as well do some contract work. That can be very mean influence people's lives. You think your retirement could last thirty years. Not Everybody's dream is to sit on the porch swing and wile away the day, and so I, thought I think we'll just have to be more open to opportunities it. You've always wanted to do. What is it that you've always wanted to do and I love that as the question. Right I mean that that to me. Is the question that I don't think a lot of people have the opportunity to truly ask themselves. And when they're having the opportunity to do something, fundamentally different or or switch gears. Gift Right? It's almost like a do over or something to the person soul. It absolutely is i. mean think about you know you've worked your whole life. Doing whatever it is, you've enjoyed doing. You maybe even loved it, but all the sudden. You're able to do something that. The makes you WANNA get up everyday just fascinating to me. Sometimes something related to what people have been working on their entire lives. Sometimes, it's completely different. Guys who working at who are working part time at home depot. And, they weren't able to drive a nail straight. But they love the interaction. They love the job. They love the opportunity. To go to work, and they're able to work for a little bit of time. They go home. Job Stays there. They go and play golf. just such. A great opportunity and it's just a matter of being a little bit better organized, and really thinking about what do I want to do? It's a lot of fun to help. People think about these. Do you see this is something that we're seeing more often now in the boomer population who have identified so strongly as part of their person as part of their job. Absolutely I think we're GONNA. See an even more going forward economy aside. It's the fact that had a clientele. He's getting ready to retire early at fifty five and he's doing so in September and his wife said I hope you got some to do. Because I'm not looking for target buddy. That's just. You know. She has a life that she's established. And and they're very happy together, but she's not really looking forward to spending twenty four hours a day seven days a week. For the next twenty years together. and. He's always working so. He's really looking at at this himself. What do I WANNA do leaving my employer? He's he's worked in it. For, for government contractors of different aspects. In for a lot of those people that feels a little bit meaningless. After awhile one meeting at work after another any really wants to do something that makes a difference. And he's not quite sure what that is yet, but but you can see the wheels spinning in his head I have the freedom to do this, but but I do as an answer your question, I'll get back to I. DO THINK WE'RE GONNA. See a lot more of it because we've all associated are part of who we are what we do. Is what brought meaning to our lives. Mostly of the spouses whenever I teach a class or I, talk about this with people. I always tell them listen you know you you may think. There's a guy that you're going to retire and you're GONNA come home. Your Wife. If you were managing one hundred people at work does not need one hundred kind of attention on a day-to-day. She doesn't need that kind of management and the same is true on the other side. Are the women tend to adjust better I think. Marriages are happy retirements or happier when you have things to do, and and you're able to go out and have that outside value that you can still feel. The Freedom Yeah I'm. GonNa take three months off great. Take to three months off right. That's awesome. Well, let's talk about some of the ramifications of that happened with semi-retirement. Because there are some moving parts here especially with the plan, so somebody sits down with you. Tom and they say I'd like to semi retire. Let's first talk about some of the financial ramifications. Are there limitations? Are there concerns through the planning process that you guys bring up to the client? We you know the first thing when I have somebody who says listen I want to retire. Simulator I'M GONNA. Do some contract. Work and I'm going to be doing that. You Know I. Feel like I'm going to do that for a long time. In the first thing I want to do is want to get realistic about how long are you really going to be able to do it? sometimes skillset. Sometimes. It's just physical of being able to do it and we don't WanNa plan to long into your retirement. kind of rely on those dollars. 'cause typically feel so well. You know I'm I'M GONNA? Make fifty grand a year. Doing this will. We'll have that as part of our income and I want to make sure we don't go too far down the road without I wanNA make sure that we we'll that back in so that it's still fun. Sometimes we just call it golf money. You know it's twenty grand a year going to be doing something in which a great. We're not gonNA include this in the plan. We're going to call it your golf money. You're fishing money, and this is just extra money outside. If you do it, it works out great. So I had wanted to be realistic. The next time we for the amount coming in then we WANNA be realistic on the amount of time of length of time. You're likely to be doing that and looking at how that affects the plan. Some of the other pieces that start to play into this and we wanna be thinking about is we want to make sure that we stay within some parameters for taxes so that we're not bumping up into another tax category unexpectedly. Probably a conversation for another day, but we don't want our medicare costs to go up. We don't want to get a letter. From Irma. Thomas of Medicare costs us more because you made a thousand dollars too much last year, so some of those kinds of parameters who want to be thinking about as well as we look at the overall income that you're gonNA receive. And we WANNA. Make sure that that we kind of review that with everything else overdoing every year because surly, these things will change sometimes. You'll find that you love doing it. You may find that after a year doing it. Kind of over that, too, so definitely, some things we wanna look at in that regard for some people. It's brand new environment where we're going to have some expenses. It's a new truly ten ninety nine type of a GIG. And WE WANNA make sure that we're. We're correctly identifying those again for tax purposes, the certainly a fairly large tax element that can play into this that you want to be thinking about getting organized about so they were able to take advantage of those I. Don't want to go too far down that road that, but there can be some nice advantages to having that contract job, and and driving an IV to it, and being able to write off the drive potentially. I say potentially because every situation is different, but. But. There are some of those kinds of things we can work in as well that we wanna be thinking about what about Social Security This is something that I've always been curious about. If you start social security, and then you go back to work like you semi retire. Can you turn off Social Security I know? Everybody's different in their the I don't want you to give a specific here. Let's just make sure that we're clear about that, but Tom Way. Can you just generally start and stop or how can semi retirement impact social security? Okay, let me in my world in eastern Washington. We see this all the time. We have a project called. The Hanford projects was a government project more. They create a lot of plutonium for nuclear bombs. They have to clean it up now and what we see a lot of people who guys who will retired from there. They'll be retired for six months and also they get a phone call from their boss. It says hey, you know. We we miss. You would like you to come back. In fact, we'd like to pay more money than we paid you when you were working. We're GONNA. Use a contractor. You're not an employee anymore, but now they don't need the income from social security. They want to turn it off. Because potentially associated grow eight percent a year. When you're not using it, and so you can do that. There's a little bit of a procedure to it not too bad. It's called restriction your benefit, but we but I see that with my clients in this area a lot it's it's pretty much a joke out at Hanford to to retire, so you can make more money. Doing the exact same job you were doing before. And now you now. You don't have to show up every day if you don't want to. Certainly you can social security can certainly benefit there's. You know depending on your situation. Medicare might be affected. That's a little bit trickier. In you really want to talk through that We have experts that we turn to have situations like there. Someone's retired started medicare for example and then. Gone back to work another. Have they have insurance you get? That they WANNA switch back to so certainly happens. Just want to make sure that we need. We make sure we hit that correctly, but but yes, you can, you can. What do it's restricting your benefits from social security? You already touched on my next line of questions, which is to talk about the personal. And interpersonal aspects of retirement and semi retirement. I know a lot of times. It's not a decision that's made in a vacuum especially in a in a spousal situation. What sort of stuff do you help? People through the planning process consider to make sure that they're taking that into account. We know we all need everybody. If any time in our lives as ever reinforced at its this stay at home order. That's it feels like it goes. It's been going on forever. And we're starting to see people just say Okay I. You know what enough I need other people and so you want to be thinking about that. You know you don't think about it when you go to work every day that you're talking to Bob and you know what's going on with suzy over here and and you have this whole social networking. Get ready to leave. People always say I'M GONNA. Miss the people at work or we're going to stay in touch. It's a lot like college graduation. If you go back that you have all these fringe made in college, you're always going to stay in touch and you do. For a couple of months or a year or two, and then pretty soon, your lives get busy. Get married. You have kids your job and you move on with your life in your live separate. And so it takes a lot of effort. To, really keep in touch with people you need to be thinking about. What is our Social GonNa be? as a couple. Maybe we have religion we have church way we have golf. Perhaps! We've got some other things. But, it's a very valid thing people need to be thinking about is what were you going to do because? If you haven't had enough of sitting in the same house with your spouse during the stay at home order, which can be a great example of what retirement could feel like maybe we. WanNa. Make sure we have some clubs or things it do is a couple. Maybe you WANNA. Take Gardening. There's certainly a lot of clubs for that it did. Did the world can be endless there on the options, but you want to be thinking about them and looking for opportunities. You can do that because we need people well and having that conversation to with your financial planner, make such a world of difference because you just talked about like the Gulf money, the setting assigned mud money in the plan for these social activities are very important. Right? Absolutely I have a client and we were going through their their. Their goals and concerns for when they retire, and we're going through all the ones you normally don't want WanNa run out of money and long term care and things, and and his wife said they're very thing. She said Listen I. WanNa. Make sure there's enough money in here so John can go golfing and I. thought it was really cute. The way she said and he said why don't golf that much and she said, but you will be. And I don't WanNa. Make sure that we have. We have that built in. Because that's a hobby. So you WanNa be thinking about that. You know if it's not golf. It's fishing you know. Maybe it's time to buy that fishing boat. You've always wanted or it's you know for some people. It's the RV. That, you're both going to to take some of these trips you've always wanted to. I've got a couple where he loves to be in the woods and she does watercolors. and. They've been able to work out where he goes out and goes on a hike, and does whatever and she stays back at the RV and does watercolors of sceneries both are happy. Doing that. Gosh it's. It's but you WANNA. Make sure you budget in for those things because there are expenses as you continue to meet with clients, which is one of the great parts of your financial planning process! What sort of emotional things have you seen? Come up after somebody retires, and either if they are semi retired or not. I think the first we've talked about? Is the separation anxiety? For guys, this is really hard and they don't really appreciate how hard it's going to be. They've been focused on work for their whole lives. And and the first six weeks of retirement is like that vacation. You always dreamed up. If your jobs like mine. Taking two weeks off in a row is almost impossible. I've never actually done it, but but I've heard of people doing taking six weeks off. You're like. Oh, my Gosh, you know we're going here. We're going there or getting. We're getting the Reagan. We're just driving for the first time. My Life I don't have to ever return date in mind. I'm just going. You check those boxes and then. That's where it starts to get a little bit harder. Emotionally. And mentally will see people in retirement start to slip into some some telltale signs of depression and in awkwardly quite sure why and a lot of it has to do with just having that ongoing values. What would bring what bring value to my life? Well the first thing. We WanNA. Do people to be aware of it. and to be thinking about. Jim Mentions along vacation. You know we tell clients. If you're gonNA, take the best advice we can give. You is to take the RV or go rent a home somewhere else go to Hawaii. Or California or someplace rent a place for six weeks. Why does eight weeks because it takes that long to create new habits? And you need to establish because you stay at home. Nothing changes. You're getting up at the same time. You're doing the same things except you're not going to work and. Let's say it's pretty free in the first six weeks, but after that. It gets a little bit harder. And if you're not thinking about it beforehand, you, you will eventually. We just like to think about it before. Because emotionally need to be healthy going through retire. Yeah, it makes a huge difference. Right? The more emotional emotional health you have, the longer you're going to be able to stay retired. Now I'd like to go back to semi-retirement a little bit here. Especially when it comes to familial aspects, so grandma and GRANDPA GONNA retire going GonNa Retire Grandma's GonNa Retire. The family has a response to this. And, then they decide Oh my God I. Really do want to go back to work because that ever happened to you, or would you mind sharing a story or two? Yeah we. We see that you see that quite a bit. Normally I would say better than fifty percent of the time. It's going to be a part time job something that doesn't require there fulltime work going back I think the you know from from a standpoint of from a planning standpoint that we do for clients. It's not a financial need. Now separating us from the rest of the world, I will say my clients talk about people who retire without thinking about the really being organized about how how they're going to do it and two years later this Guy Bob's back to work again because he ran out of money. Or events happened in his in this new retirement Saudi had that changed his world. In the market went down. Whatever that is, you'll see people go back to where and they're not back to work necessarily because they're happy about it, I don't see too much with our clients of the go back to work fulltime after they've retired. We certainly see a lot of part-time work some contract work. But because I. Think they're financially able to to be okay and they know they're going to be okay for that. Long term that doesn't creep in and force that I have to go back, but still I. Think you know the when you ask about this, you know it's. It's really getting to that point of San Man. I got to do something I. Don't have any hobbies. I, don't you know have? I've never developed any hobbies or any other things I do outside of work because by Gosh, I'm at work ten hours a day five days a week Saturdays and mowed the lawn I went to the baseball games with the kids and the grandkids. Once my kids got to old. Maybe I went to church on Sunday or Sunday was. Read a book and all of a sudden, not Saturdays and Sunday's. And? I. Don't know how to fill my days. Sounds like me. I'm. Unless. You're not going to do retire a bit, but. Those that kind of part that you're talking about earlier where it's like you got really stop and think well. What am I going to do? Six weeks post retirement. What am I gonNA? Do when I've been on that trip. Some, people love travel and they'll do it incessantly. But that's again more the exception than the rule. Were used to come home. I like the bed in my house. I'm not really. Keen on test and test marketing one hundred different hospice hotel that hospital beds. Never as good, but we have that idea. That Hammond is gonNA. Spend all this time on the road. Or whatever it is, and so it does come up I think you just got to be thinking about that before you leave that last best job you've ever had. Make sure you're financially ready, but you're emotionally ready and you have a plant. May Not. Be Perfect, but you've got a plan. And with you, the plan is continuously evolving especially through the three major phases, the Gogo slow go nogo faces, and making sure that you're meeting with your financial planner to make adjustments as needed you. Would you mind just kind of wrap it up today's podcast by talking about some of the some of the adjustments that happen whether you do go back to work or you don't go back to work over those three faces. You know when I see people. As you mentioned you know the go, go years slow going no go, and and just kind of put some definition on that. We're really talking about Gogo years up to about age seventy-five for most people. Then from seventy five about eighty five, we are slow. Go years, and we make daily five, and beyond were pretty much. We're hall. And and so we want to be looking at. It's not just the financial aspects. Certainly go years can be years. You can spend doing whatever it is you'd like to do. You're going to spend the time one way or the other. And, so we want to be able to be free enough to be able to go out and do the things we've always dreamed of doing checking off those things you're bugging, and so maybe that means you know you set up a plan. That has a little more spending early on maybe than later. We WanNa make sure that as we go through those that were adjusting as need. Be Now the biggest adjustment we see when someone had slow go years is they started to realize have got money coming. In I'm not going to spend our have assets. I'm never gonNA. Spend the course of my lifetime now. We're going to start talking about. How do we transition those assets? If we haven't already started position, we WANNA be really active about position in those money those assets, so they passed the people that we want to get them in. Really have to start talking about end of life things a little bit more uncomfortable because it's a lot more real. we're feeling. We're seeing with friends family That's coming, but we want to be thinking about that in planning again. This is another aspect of just planning. And then making sure that you know, we have a good survivorship plan. Engine on a down note here. Hate to do that, but but it's part of life. This is the end of the next phase. We're alive and we. If we're not talking about an planning for it, it's going to happen anyway, and so will we see this transition from? I got all these great things were doing all this wonderful things we're doing. We're not doing maybe near as much May we're going and we're saying someplace for a couple of weeks our visit the grandkids little bit more whatever that happens to be, but we're certainly not doing as much. To you know funding that transition into the later part of our lives where one of our spouses this past and we're making now adjustment in. We're wanting to help our clients through this entire process emotionally and financially to make sure that they continue to have the quality of life that they've always wanted to have. I don't think you ended that on a down. Note I think that was ended on a very important. No Top. Those are conversations that I know people aren't comfortable having, but they're so important to make sure that your leaving legacy that you want beyond. It is I mean that's this is part of who we are. I mean we. We want we want our kids and grandkids? We want to leave a legacy for them. Both emotional and educational and we've touched their lives. And it's also nice when we leave a little bit of financial behind and to do it in the manner where the moment where the majority of that ends up with with the family, and not the IRS, but it all takes time and takes thought. It takes planning. It just doesn't happen on its own. If somebody wants to reach out to you. It's the best way for them to reach out to you Tom.

"Has this lockdown. Caused you to feel overly fatigued. And as a result, is your sex drive and sexual activity. Shrinking. Hi I'm Dr. Catalina and if you haven't already please subscribe to my Youtube Channel or my podcast, sex marks the spot. You can follow me on instagram or facebook. I'm Dr Catalina Lawson a licensed clinical psychologist and I love talking about sex sex marks. The spot is a podcast that bridges the gap between what we know and what we actually do when it comes to sex relationships an health. Today I want us to talk about fatigue, and how fatigue impacts your sex life, and what you can do to actually manage it. Alright so fatigue is one of the most. Of My research and work has been in cancer and fatigue is one of the longest. Side Effects, the most difficult to manage fatigue isn't just being tired. I describe it often as. Feeling like you're walking. In. Quicksand and mud, and just dragging and feeling low motivated, low energy and feeling really heavy everything is effort. Naps generally don't help with a teague exercise can help a little bit. But what we find with fatigue, and again whether this be because of the Covy, one of the things that we're seeing right now and particularly with the monotony, not having those outlets that we generally used to refuel ourselves. Fatigue has set in for many of my clients. And certainly this is what a lot of the studies right now are also showing about how our quality of life has been impacted by this coded pandemic. So What you see is oftentimes when we're fatigued. This idea of actually having sex and having sex drive. Forget about it like again. We are all human, so if you're noticing yourself being disinterested or even maybe aversive to sex right now because you're experiencing fatigue. You are not alone. So let's talk about how you can begin to manage the fatigue. And then apply it to actually. Improve or heighten your sex drive and improve your sexual wellbeing. So one of the best strategies to personally manage your own fatigue is. Activity pacing? Pacing yourself throughout the day which again during this Kovic lockdown can be incredibly hard because we don't really have any fine stops. Most people don't even know what day it is. So what's important is actually particularly. If you're doing a lot of zoom calls, or you're on your computer all day. Taking breaks every thirty to forty five minutes actually getting up getting some water moving your body, okay. Again. It's interesting that with fatigue. NAPS have to be very very regularly scheduled and and. Sometimes, they work. Sometimes. They don't so with fatigue. Really it is about pacing yourself and being realistic about what you actually can achieve in the day. Or Right? When it comes to sex is the same thing if we're now in about three and a half four months i. don't even know where we are anymore in this lockdown, so but it's been a long time, and if you found yourself old particularly over the last month. Month and a half just not being interested in sex again. Pace yourself here to. Sexes, not just intercourse, so begin to actually. Become intimate cuddle with your partner. Give each other massages. Do Pace Yourself. As far as not always feeling like being intimate has to be either a quickie or this long drawn out session. Find a middle ground and experiment with with your energy levels of to what actually is comfortable, because sex is meant to be pleasurable, but if you are too little, fatigued and distracted by your fatigue, your head's not going to be in the game. Your body's not going to relax so really actually try to pace yourself even when it comes to sex so really just even if it's five minutes of you know a little hand, play or oral play play with that and be okay with it, not always having to also end in a climax I. Get it if you're super orgasm focused. That's that's. and. There's always this impetus that we have to focus on outcome when it comes to sex. No, you don't K-. Another tip after pacing is. Look at when you actually have more energy in the day and schedule. Times to be intimate K., so for instance if you actually have been sleeping well, and you're more of a morning person, then ask your partner if if you can try to be intimate then and again, not having to have full intercourse, but if even just touching each other in just cuddling. Taking steps and particularly if you have been withdrawn from sex for a while, just giving yourself finding times in the day that actually you generally have more energy experimenting okay? Another thing that you can begin to do is actually if you already are feeling like you're so fatigue and everything is. So, Do yourself a solid and actually. Pamper yourself beforehand and this goes for the men as well K.. Take a nice relaxing bath. and. Take your time to put your moisturizer on. and. Pamper yourself before you actually WANNA become intimate. You need to begin to actually train your body that rather than sex, being aversive and a chore. that. This is actually a treat. It's something pleasurable, so you can begin to associate you pampering and self care to a pleasurable activity. You're starting to actually nurture your body to actually. Give it some of that love and energy to then also review, but then prepare yourself, so you're setting the stage for connection and being intimate with your partner. So three things that you can do are one pace yourself in your daily activities as well as how the types of sexual activities and the process of activity sex sexual activity you engage in. Two. Times when you have the most energy during the day. And, three? Hanford yourself before you're wanting to engaged. Some type of sexual activity with your partner. Those three strategies that you can do to actually. Manage your. And also. Nurtured Sexual Welby.
