Sarah Alcorn on her podcast "Ivy League Murders"
"Of cambridge. And it's a super liberal bastion and growing up. I think part of part of what motivated us to do this. We really grew up in with harvard in our backyard. You know harvard square was our hangout places teens and so but i think for a lot of people the ivy league. Is you know as exotic as a place like hawaii. So that's part of the reason why we put this together was to to our whole premises. Basically got somebody really intellectually intelligent but emotionally not so much and so we see that time and time again and not everybody went to i. D league at some of the victims are actually from the ivy league is also. We're really trying to explore crimes. Crimes academia crimes of crimes. We always think of privilege is being this bubble where things like that can't happen. So that's what we're looking into and we're trying to just take true crime to next level and put a little bit philosophy or history or literature in there too because it is ib leak. And that's our niche actually with the ivy league murders. Hey it's the same kind of mystique as white people so fascinated with celebrities. They wanna know what happens when they're not in front of the camera. We all these scandals people are drawn to it in with an ivy league schools at. You might see these captains of industry or tech giants or whatever. They may turn out to be. You know what's what's going on. When they're out of the hollow they're not immune from human frailties which are know mental illness and drugs and alcohol an obsession and love and sax and money and greed. And all those all the things that motivate people to to make the ultimately bad decision of murdering somebody else. Did you think that some of the people who have that kind of education just will say the killer obviously that they thought that there was some sort of an entitlement. We find that quite a lot. In in fact some of the subjects that we look at a for example thinking of dr grindr which is one of our episodes absolutely brilliant doctor and he perpetrated a ridiculous crime sloppiest crime in you know so it does go into my theory that some people could be. They can be very intelligent in certain categories and then just suck Committing crimes. Do think. There's a lot of like entitlement or hubris or whatever you wanna call it where they think like. I'm so much smarter than everybody in these blue collar. Cops will never be a the solve this crime and it's like dude. You know the you did a terrible job on the crime. Sorry you know varied sloppy. That's one thing. We like to look at There is there's a famous writer. Dominic dunn really was fascinated with crime in privilege and is a great quote. and i'm paraphrasing. Can't remember the exact quote but that people are more interested in seeing kings fall than peasants. Basically in that the kind of you know serfs or whatever the phrase is that he says. I just think it applies to this as well because i think the presumption is when you go to an ivy league. Everything's perfect after that right. You make six figures year. Everything's taking care of van.

Personal Computers: the Dawn of a Revolution
"It's a cold and frosty December afternoon. In nineteen seventy four. Two young men are walking across Harvard Square. They're probably having a conversation about their favorite subject. Computers as the men pass a newsstand. They see the blue lettering of popular electronics peeking. Out from the other magazines they stop and check it out on. The cover is a photo of a metal box with a dozen switches in small lights on the front. The headline reads world's first mini computer. Kid All tear eight hundred. The box doesn't look like much barebones really meant for hobbyists and tinkerers but it looked like something more to these two guys. It looked like the machine. They'd been waiting for because they have the perfect software for this new hardware at the same time. They were a little freaked out would if others had the same idea they did. And we're working on it already. The had to move fast. The names of those two command line. Heroes Bill Gates and Paul Allen. Little did they know the altar eighty eight hundred would be the gateway machine to a personal computer revolution. It would change their lives and ours forever. New Machine would do one other thing. It would kick start the debate between free and proprietary software with the help of a mysterious stay tuned in episode one of our season on hardware. We learned about many computers like the Eagle at an episode two. We heard about the ged to twenty five mainframe but both those machines were still limited by their size cost and processing power. This episode is about everything. Shrunk down to the micro computer and it all starts with the diy kits that were mailed to hobbyists like the one that grace that fateful cover of. Popular Electronics. Those simple kits inspired the revolutionary idea. That computers could sit inside your own home. That computers were yours to own an experimental. It was the birth of a new mass market piece of hardware. The personal computer.

What if the self driving car revolution is an office park shuttle from american public media. This is marketplace tech demystifying the digital economy. I'm molly would everyone is very excited about autonomous honest cars but with every day they feel a little farther away waymo. Alphabet self driving car company is still testing fully autonomous cars as taxis in the phoenix area tesla is putting semi-autonomous features onto its own cars for consumers to buy and some companies like boston-based optimus ride are are thinking the immediate future is a little more contained the startup which yes is named after the transformer is betting on low speed vehicles that carry people around defined geographic areas it is not the sexiest use of autonomous driving tech but it might be more doable optimus ride. I just started a contract. Giving people free rides around the brooklyn navy yard an industrial park in new york city marketplace tech producer stephanie us went to check it out optimus ride vehicles stick out the black six passenger electric automobiles have the word self-driving in all capital letters on the back kind of like when you see a student driver and like student drivers these vehicles still have teachers that ride along to human monitors are in the front seat ready to jump in if needed they drift the passengers as well before everyone has belts meet you in the back demille ezra's tech investor. He's just coming from a meeting at a startup accelerator in the navy yard. He didn't know that self-driving shuttles would be there but he wants to know everything about them third driver. Do you know what technology are of a using in the car. It's laser scanners and cameras that the vehicle uses to sense things like pedestrians and other cars. Oh and it won't go more than fifteen miles per hour that that may be the reason passengers thing. They don't seat belts in the front seat. One of the human minders holds a laptop on the screen. There's something kind of like a heat map or obstacles appear as the the car is seeing them. You'll see on the screen that that spotted that person you see that orange object and we'll probably see that by second ryan chin chen is the c._e._o. And co founder of optimus ride he says you'll see this kind of driverless tech on the street way before you can ride any kind of distance in a fully autonomous car good for example that is if you're able to drive a thomas lii in times square in a snowstorm and drive all the way to harvard square in the boston area. There's no car company in the world world can do that today and will likely take more than ten years and chen says there's a five hundred billion dollar market for autonomous shuttles and what he calls geo fenced areas like college campuses office is parks and airports. Let's test validate. The business model developed the technology and then as we get better. Let's increase the complex. Let's make the gio fence larger. Let's increase the speed. Let's let's go to an air. That's a little bit more urban but it's going to take some time for optimus ride to get rid of their human monitors. Missy cummings is a professor of robotics at duke university. She says machines can't yet see the world the way people do once we've been taught with that red stop sign means we can approximate we can estimate we know what what it means. Even if there's only parts of the stop sign showing driverless cars on the other hand have a hard time improvising when conditions change they will follow the rules and only the rules that you tell them at the navy yard the optimists vehicles are really careful at a four way stop. There's an uncomfortably long pause before the vehicle accelerates. We'll oh stop observed. We see you can see all of the cars that are coming into this intersection and we are predicting what they're gonna do. They doing the same loop over turned over again c._e._o. Ryan says that optimus vehicles will learn the rules really well and like every good student driver. They'll eventually get more confident. That's that's marketplace. Tech producers stephanie us you can see pictures from her ride at marketplace tech dot org and now for some related links which is a little more reading about how the cold reality of self driving cars starting to sink in. It's gonna take a lot longer than we thought. The tech might not actually be the panacea for everything from traffic to the environment to safety that we have been promised all along and let's be honest. That's how technology works. It comes out and it's a little slower a little bug ear and has a lot more unintended consequences than we expect it. I've got a bunch of links to articles on our website for the past past few weeks saying basically the same thing and i'm gonna brag a little bit and say i wrote about this in january twenty eight th there's a link to that piece to on marketplace tech dot org back then. I said the tech was still a little dodgy. The talent to build that tech was really hard to find lawsuits over intellectual property would start to proliferate and the safety not was still kind of an open question. Let alone that we didn't know what driverless cars would really due to the economy or traffic or how they might interact with the millions of people driven cars on on the road and all of that is still true that actually here's some interesting dish on the intellectual property part just in the last week apple and tesla sued former employees for allegedly stealing self driving taxi grits and taking them to chinese competitors and the biggest maker of lighter technology valentine nine sued to chinese companies or allegedly stealing trade secrets as well and that's just one of dozens of lawsuits over self-driving tech you know are that saying we were promised jet packs those might still get here sooner hollywood and that's marketplace tech.

"Hi, it's a pleasure to be here. It's it's great to have you. And I'm really looking forward to to hearing more about what you have to say about freedom and equality or liberty and equality as the basis of the society we live in. But I was wondering if he could actually start by telling us a story or these. Story of when it was in your own life that you I started really thinking about these two values what had happened to you. You know, I've been thinking about them for an incredibly long time even in high school. These were things I was thinking about in the turbulent nineteen seventies. When you had protests over the Vietnam war, and I lived through the civil rights movement as a young child. So these issues of freedom and equality have really been at the top of my mind for a really really long time. But let me tell you a story that really struck me. One of my first jobs when I was in college. A summer job. I took at a Bank at in Harvard square. I was just visiting in Cambridge. And at the time, I was a really confirmed capitalist libertarian total believer in free markets and private property, but I was in this Bank. And I was a bookkeeper. My job was to bounce checks. So we get in the morning all the bookkeepers would get their list of checks and checkout who was overdrawn, and then we would have a manager come in. Who would tell us, well, which checks would be paid in which wouldn't new we'd get a fine and who who would not have to pay a fine. And I noticed certain patterns one really prominent pattern was that employers would always bounce the workers paychecks. They would never bounce the checks that they owe to their suppliers the workers would be depositing. Their paychecks those checks would bounce and they would have to pay a fine, but wealthier people didn't have to pay a fine. And sometimes even the Bank would pay their over Tron account. And that was before we had standard arrangements now for for overdrafts. They didn't have them in those days. It was all an ad hoc decision. And I saw the systematic unfairness, especially against these workers who had already put in all of their work, and we're in pain and then had to effectively extend alone. On to their employer and pay a fee to the Bank, right for extending that loan. And that really got me to thinking about. Maybe there are systematic unfairness, in the way our system operates. And so how then in that moment or maybe from that moment. Did you start questioning the this notion that or asking the question of are we seeing how these the values of freedom and equality are? We seeing how those values come together in American life in the wrong way. I mean, do you do you think they're coming together on the wrong way? Well, when I was thinking was the employer. It's thinking while I've got a lot of freedom here to decide who I pay, but that came at the cost of the workers freedom, right? And at the same time. There was also a profound inequality here. There was a reason why the employer was ripping off the workers who are their subordinates and not their suppliers to whom they were beholden. So what was pretty clear was that in this case inequality and unfreedom came hand in hand, the people at the bottom both had to take orders and suffer various indignities, that's a kind of inequality and in virtue of that inequality. They were unfree. And so my thought was well that suggests that to enable workers to be free. They needed a kind of equality in general. I think that's true about social relationships. I mean, once first reaction might be this sounds like a youthful swing from capitalism to Marxism. But no, I was never Marxist. So and I think there's just a lot of awful things wrong with Marxist theory. And when I was in college, in fact, I took some courses in radical political economy, and I was fighting the professors every step of the way there's a lot of things are surprising about history..

In a previous radio life. I used to call myself, Dino, Jay, I really don't here at the station farthest reasons out of respect for Bradley. Although I'll I'll I'll pull out that Monica when I'm doing Jay talking when Bradley's away, but I reached into what I call the Dino J archives to find a couple of things from times past that. I think you'll find interesting, I'm using you know. Timing is everything this seemed pretty goofy at the time. But you never know these days. So this is an actual. Newspaper article. I can't remember what publications I got it out of when you hear what is in the article, you'll have an idea. But as I say, hey, who am I to say, they're right or wrong? The headline is your worker could be a space alien say experts. The experts are. Here's how you can tell. Many Americans work side by side with space aliens who look human, but you can spot these visitors by looking for certain tip-offs, say the experts. Here are the ten signs to watch for. I if. I'm I'm waving it, rob, rob. You can see there's an actual article right at this is a real thing. I'm not making this up. So you you might want to get a pen or a pencil and write down these ten signs to watch for in case, you might be working with an alien or. That in law. The always wondered about here are the ten signs to watch for awed or mismatched clothes, and and believe it or not we have an expert here. We have an expert a renowned UFO investigator and author Brad Steiger, and he says often space aliens don't fully understand the different styles. So they wear combinations. That are bad and tastes such as checked pants with a striped shirt or tuxedo jacket with blue jeans or stickers. Apparently, he's never walked through Harvard square. Otherwise, he'd corral everyone there. I guess there's different kinds of billions who talking about right? We we've been talking about these last couple of years, and it's it's it's in in the terrestrial sense, these extraterrestrial aliens, so that's one of the size. You want to watch out for odd or mismatch? Close danger will Robinson danger. Number two. Strange diet or unusual. Eating habits. Space aliens might eat French fries with a spoon or gobble down large amounts of pills. The experts say. Because it does he what kind of pills? As I do this in. If you listen to the show regularly. You know, that I I really I have the attention span of CC fly. So I'm going to go off on tangents this gobbling down large amounts of pills. When I was writing about music for the herald, I had actually was out. We talk about the Beverly went out to the north shore music theatre to go see Tom Jones perform and not that I'm suggesting Tom Jones's an alien. That's a decision you're going to have to make on your own. After you go through this list with me. When I was watching Tom Jones perform an s he is performing. I am watching him as it says here gobbling down large amounts of pills, and I'm thinking to myself, okay. Vitamin deprived? Does he have a bad habit in his socialis about it? He doesn't care.

Respectability rather ability. I remember one time. I was I had to it was the worst sort of job interview thing was like, I I go to this job interview. I'm not really even sure what it's four, and it's me and a whole bunch of people in a room. And it seems like it's the tone of when the the person came out was like this really intimidating cross between a timeshare like talk and a life kind of like a a motivational speaker little and kind of like a parole officer. It was this. Yeah. And we learned that we were there to sell knives. I did that. Thing. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. I didn't end up selling the nice. I just went through the whole organization. Oh my God. And I like ten minutes, and I'm like, okay. I'm not the personalities, hyper that this is not. There's no way. There's no way there's no way, and I stayed for the whole like hour or two, and I was like I could've just caught up in. Get any anytime.

I've ever getting shorted like hundreds of dollars and the guy was kind of a thug, and he was just kind of like, you should've took the other deal. Basically. There was something where instead of getting like a low ball deal. I was supposed to get a proper percentage of the people. I brought in the guy just like rip me off. It was basically telling me my face. If there was nothing I could do about it and thankfully, never returned there. But that's all you can do really is his cO. Yeah. And I've had that to even you know, I mean. I'm always surprised where there's like a new thing. Like, I was did a show last year where it was like yet contracts and plate, you know, agents and stuff like that. And I got there and the guy goes and after the show great to me anyways little by little. And but he said, oh, yeah. We don't have. We don't have enough money. And I was like, oh, okay. In anyways. It was it was just sort of hilarious like I. Because at this point. I have some empathy fry goal. I I really fucked up many times businesswise I've done made mistakes stuff. Like, so I go. All right. So I at that time cut a deal with the person and said, okay. Can you do this? And they were like, maybe like, all right anyways. So I ended up having my agents to deal with it. Because I was just like, I just don't know. Exactly. What to do? It was so confusing and the person self was like the put out a number to it was gonna pay pay me. And then and then right after saying that after saying, we don't have the money, and okay, that's really great. We can work out something less, and then they said, but could you recommend me and? Ticket this comment. You're not going to pay me for referral throw someone into the furnace for you to this. Like anything? That's where it's like some of the earth have to have some compassionate.

It could be a guitar on sage or it could be just going like, why are you wasting your time making videos? And Ryan said to me, he's like, well, you're out there during my video is out there touring for me and you're like, oh, like he just wanted me over with that one statement now. And then Z's also was doing. A lot of that when I got to New York, it's like, oh, this is like it's all comedy, right. When did we get so us in them? You know what I mean?
