Biden holds a drive-in rally in Detroit, Michigan
"From NPR News. I'm Janine Hearst. Both presidential candidates hit the campaign trail today at a driving car event. In Detroit Democrat Joe Biden slammed Republicans for holding a hearing on President Trump's Supreme Court nominee while the country deals with the Corona virus. Millis PANDEMIC. Why don't Republicans at the time as I said, to hold a hearing on the Supreme Court instead of addressing the significant upcoming needs of local communities? I'll tell you why. It's about wiping out Obama care, wiping it off the books. Because their nominee is said in the past that the law should be struck down.
Stolen Moments With Harold Sherrick
"Recoup here on the imbalance history of rock and roll Marcus how you doing not bad. How about yourself today? Well I'm doing good but I'm a little nervous because we're trying something different. Today we're going to combine an episode of five favorites with a studio gas well, not in the studio on zoom? Resuming. With Harold Cherokee, he's got a great book called stolen moments. How many years Herald were in La is a seem to time I was born in La so in La for sixty three years. Only been back here for three years moved back here three years ago. where. Were you living before? While I was living in the San Fernando Valley in Sherman Oaks. Dan Is area that you. which is just just over the hill to Hollywood, which is about fifteen minutes from where I live great place to be mad that close you know was wonderful. As a kid growing up there, where did you live and how did you first start plugging into the whole strip in the scene and everything that was going on there? I was born in L. A. Downtown La but then as a kid. Moved to Glendale California which is just right. Next door. They're nice sleepy little town and I basically grew up there went to high school there the whole bit and was there up until like nine hundred ninety and that I but I moved to the valley when I got married a second time and Just. been there all my life and. I was well connected when I was a kid started going to concerts when I was twelve. I concert was the Beatles. Hollywood ball no. That was all I. I went to the last la which was August. Twenty nineteen, sixty six and that was the Beatles Esta left. Day before the last one, which was candlestick. But that was my first concert. That right in the second row air right there. Six dollars? Ticket dollars can you actually hear the Beatles because? I HAVE THEM IN DC and said, the girls were screaming so loud that she couldn't hear the Beatles from where she was sitting in the stadium Yakking you know here and there it wasn't obviously crystal clear. You did have screamed grounding out of most of the time, but you could hear your somewhat mind blown dude, that's all I wanNA say or I'll deal mind-blowing. Well, that'll be a great entry into rock and roll life for anyone. And Talk to us a little bit about the book you were taking pictures around the L. A. Seen for quite a number of years in have some stunning captures in this book in all, it was going to concerts as a kid I used to play around with little Brownie camera when I was nine and ten years old and so eventually when I was able to graduate up to actually getting a decent camera which was. Like nineteen, Seventy, eight, seventy, nine, eighty at one. I really started pushing myself into the into the scene as best I could. It's all proven yourself in the beginning paying your dues you know you're not getting paid when you start out, it wasn't the solely for the money was the for the love of the whole thing. I always had a visual of capturing a great moment. You know whether it was in concert or meeting. Somebody in a hotel room that's what I started doing. Did you build a black and white dark room in your house? My father had a black and white dark room. Yeah. I didn't my house. I had a friend that helped me out a lot a couple of friends that end our rooms and I would bring my films as soon as I shot it the next morning I was there almost at the crack of dawn. We gotta get this process you know right away. That's awesome. You know would do the proof sheets and then big out of print I'd have sometimes I'd have to send something out right away most of the time in the beginning, it was just doing it and getting it done. So I could actually look at what I shot. That's all part of the beginning anyway trial and error is how you learn from a day to day thing you know 'cause I'm self taught I didn't go to school for it and I just I always wanted to do that. You know just take pictures because my father. Was, a newspaper man you were for hearst for the Herald, examiner in La A., and that's how I of got into it. When I was a kid was he would always take me down to the office I used to look at all the photos and the photo room with saga offers, and then I go to the pressroom and watch the paper roll off the presses at night with the greatest greatest experience you know the newspaper game sets how I got into want shoot black and white for falls. What was the first concert? You Shot Elvis Presley Whoa. Seventy six year before he died he he never he didn't come to L. A. and seventy-six closes. He came Long Beach Arena and I had tickets through a friend who is very well connected into Elvis and getting good tickets. So we had some really good seats and that time I think I'd be twenty five bucks to see John a few pictures. They didn't really come out that well. So that's why nothing has really been seen on that because I nothing came out that good at all.
The Birth Of The Greenback
"Stacey next. Jacob Feldstein. Planet money author of money the true story of amid up during a new book. Say I. brought props for us to do the indicator. I say. That's been months. It's been. That guy's been honking hall eight months. I have props came over so I could give you these troughs. Okay. Go ahead and look at them. All right. Okay. So, this is like a really high quality xerox of an old piece of money. THREE DOLLAR BILL RE dollar bill that's really a real thing. There's like a a lady standing next to in like a ball gown standing next to a cow to I chose a cow to pander to you I do love a cow keep going. Okay. The Orange Bank It's orange because this from the orange. Bank and this is a one dollar bill. So Stacey, these are reproductions of real paper money that was printed by private banks in the United States in the eighteen forties and fifties. This is one of the most interesting periods I found in the history of money when I was working on my book, it's this moment when the United States government did not print money, there was in fact, no single national paper currency but if you wanted to. Open Up Stacey's Bank of New York and print your own paper money. You could. I don't know if I would trust that dollar from that. Was a real problem that was a real problem we'll get to that. I. Mean they were just so many different kinds of money at one point the Chicago Tribune counted eight, thousand, three, hundred, and seventy different kinds of paper money in America. This sounds very confusing for everyone involved this indicator from planet money. I'm Stacey Vanik Smith and Jacob. Goldstein can we make eight, thousand, three, hundred and seventy, the indicator? Yes. Today on the show. How can you even have that many kinds of money and also just what does it tell us about money works? Let's just go. Let's just go a block away to get away from the horn. Yeah.

So can we should set the scene here Jacob the nineteenth century America lots of is apparently also this was the era when gold and silver were money and Jacob say in the book that the government minted gold and silver coins, but it did not make paper money at that time. The exactly right. So the only paper money in America was printed by all of these different. Private banks people called paper money in fact banknotes, right. So they thought of it as like a piece of paper from a bank and they thought of paper money in particular as like a receipt or a coach ticket as as a thing that you could substitute for gold and silver, and in fact, if you look at at the bills I gave you all have this kind of. Writing like just grab a different one for fun. So we can say what it looks like. Okay. This is the stoning ten bank, a two dollar bill. There's a way. Moby Dick or something Wail Bell we've cow Bill Wail Bill So okay. So now look at the cursive writing see the cursive they're just blowers is stoning to. Two dollars to the bear on demand right and if you look all these different bills are different colors, they have different pictures on them, but they all say that will pay how ever many dollars to the on demand and so the second interest. Yeah it's an Iou because the interesting thing is it's telling you the paper money is not the real money. Right? They're saying we will give you two dollars in gold and silver for this paper money right? So the real money in this world is the underlying gold or silver the paper is just like. The Standard. So this is a time in history when there's not federal bank, there's not a national bank. There's like thousands of of little local banks and I guess all these banks can issue their own money. That's right and it's kind of evolving in this period at the beginning of this ehre the eighteen thirties. If you wanted to open a bank, typically you had to go to your state legislature and get special approval. Basically, they had to pass a special law that would let you open your bank and this was problematic because I was super corrupt essentially. Bank and print money. Then you're gonNA bribe whoever you have to. Say all the knee. All due respect to get them to let you open your bank. Right. So around eighteen forty, a little earlier, this new idea became popular. The new idea was called free banking. And the idea of free banking was anybody who is willing to follow a few basic rules could. Take and start printing money and literally start printing money and you know not surprisingly a lot of people wanted to print money. This is how we get eight thousand different kinds of money. Yes. How do you know if the bill that someone's handing you is real money or if it's literally just a piece of paper from the First Bank of Stacey Vanik Smith which might be real money. I wouldn't. Maybe. Add bribed senator so I love this so there arose in response to this problem these special periodicals Magazines that were privately published called banknote reporters. And what they were was these lists in tiny font of every kind of money. So I actually have a reproduction here another prop from a page. This one was called. Thomson's Bank note. Reporter. K.. So the people who subscribe to this merchants people who need to accept money. So so let's just say I'm running a bar and I got my thompsons bank note reporter and I come in I need a drink who thirsty I'm thirsty. So okay. So the page of the bank note reporter I printed out is for Orange Bank. Okay. Okay. So have that bill right here it is and it's a one dollar bill. So I find Orange Bank here in my Bengal reporter and it says Okay Orange Bank listed different bills and says ones and under wants it describes what the bill is supposed to look like says to horses check. Hey, Cart Jack Blacksmith shop male portrait Jack Girl. Check. So it's at least plausibly real. The reporter also tells me something else that's important and that explains a lot about how many works at this time. Typically would tell me whether I should accept that paper money at full face vowed I can buy my dollar whiskey with this whether you can get your dollar whiskey because remember what we care about is whether I can turn in that paper money for gold or silver, and so if the bank is shaky or even if it's just really far away. You know the reporter might say, just knock five cents off the dollar give Stacey Ninety five cents worth of whiskey instead of a dollar that took a really long time to buy that we ski. It does seem like it would have been absurdly inconvenient right and for a long time when people look back at this period, the basic story of free banking was just that was a horrible idea like that many kinds of money right but. Much, later, like in the nineteen seventies. This generation of economic historians started going back and looking more closely. At the banks and how money works in this period and what they saw when they really went through the numbers was basically like it wasn't that bad Bankston go bus that often people didn't usually lose much money when they used. We're you overall they would lose like a few percent which is. Kind of like what you pay today. So when you take money out of the weird off Brand ATM at. The corner store. which I always do. Yeah, I. Mean. That's basically like the the bartenders giving you ninety cents for your dollar when you do that, right? So. Obviously, we do not have eight thousand different kinds of money now this ended and it ended after the civil war. Yeah was the civil war. So during the civil war, that old American argument of can we have national banks or not came up again and Congress passed a few important banking laws. One of them basically taxed all those thousands of kind of state banknotes out of existence, and then the other one created these new national banks that printed much more reliable, much more uniform paper money. It's interesting because I mean, this was obviously after the civil war was the time when the United States went from like a collection of. To One Country, and it seems like the same thing happened with currency maybe not a coincidence. Your I mean, there is this idea at least in the modern world money is part of what makes a country a country and I think you do see that happening at this moment in the united. States when we go from thousands of kinds of money toward one uniform kind of paper money I'm just sad we lost the cow bills. Because you know Jacob I have a fever and the cure. This story in like a whole bunch of other like believable stories like this are in your new book money. The true story of a made up thing. This episode of the indicator was produced by Nick.

Two Seattle Seahawks earn Player of the Week honors after dominant Week 1 win
"Maybe, the most impressive team of the day was Seattle. Russell Wilson was thirty one of thirty, five, Oh my God for three, hundred, twenty, two, yards, four touchdowns no picks. That's ridiculous. Thirty one of thirty five metcalf picked up where he left off big day and they destroyed Atlanta and and I think that NFC west is just going to be fascinating all year long Seattle's not going to have a home field advantage. You're not GonNa have that twelfth man thing they got going out there but man, they're they're good and they're a veteran team I I think Seattle. Really is going to be a very difficult to deal with this year that quarterback may be in the prime of his career right now what year nine for him it is e was so special in that game. He was so good. It's just he's. Become. So, much fun to watch play fast the operates and how he's really gotten such a feel for the game.

"Because they didn't like the government. Don't like it go into politics try and change some things as my kinda wants to do I mean he's fourteen.

Amounts of money to insurance companies and lawyers, and be able to lower the price of goods and services medical and dental care. Is that you've got a lot of good ideas is he's a little more socialist lot more probably than his dad. You know he thinks my libertarian ideals to radical but I'd vote for him. what about Patty hearst or is her real role in all of this? Stage you're kidnapping with nothing more than a P is hunch hearsay. I don't think we'll ever be able to prove that. Let's say she didn't do it. Let's say she really was kidnapped can't she truly blame Stockholm Syndrome for all of our actions. I don't think. So actually not a hundred percent had she not been kidnapped you know like I would she have robbed banks now highly doubt it but if someone else had been kidnapped, would they have joined the SLA? So enthusiastically I have serious doubts. I think she was a very extreme leftist Berkeley College kid also a spoiled rich kid who didn't know shit about how the world really worked who mad daddy for coming down on her for having different political opinions and interracial dating I. Think She was twenty years old and surrounded by extreme leftist radicals telling her to burn everything down you know and burned everything down was burning mommy and daddy's empire down I. think sort of teenage rebellion. She was only nineteen when she was captured played a huge part and how all this played out had the SLA kidnaps some forty year old nine no fucking way. Join up with them later I think but I've never been kidnapped so easy for me to say. In the end had it not been her fascist pig parents iron hotshot lawyer she probably would have gone to prison for longer than she did. Even though her parents did fuck up defense a bit. After being prison she sure Shit didn't maintain her SLA. Communist. Ideals. those ones you ranted about recording Senate depressed itchy. Now she's she's part of the best show.

"Not time now for today's top five takeaways. By. Come on now. The super annoying. Any of the show it's not calm. Syndrome is a psychological response wearing a captive began to identify closely with his or her captors as well as with their agenda and demands. Interestingly, the incident that Stockholm Syndrome gets its name from remains pretty obscure outside of Sweden few know the names of those involved in the kidnapping situation that gave the conditions name. Let's talk about real quick and August twenty, nineteen seventy-three less than a year before Patty hearst was kidnapped four bank-workers, Brigada Lindblad, Elizabeth Old Grin Kristen and mark, and Spin Southstream who worked for. Severe Gays Credit Bank in Stockholm hostage in the thirty two year old or taken hostage. In excuse me taken hostage by there we go. Thirty, two year old career criminal Jan Erik. Also later, joined at the bank by a former prison made career criminal Clark Olofsson. Six days later when the standoff ended, it quickly became evident that the victims had formed some kind of positive relationship with their captors. And one phone call from the bank's vault the country's Prime Minister Olaf Palm a bank employee kristen end mark big to be allowed to leave the bank with the kidnappers when Palmer few she said she was very disappointed with him and added. I, think you're sitting there playing checkers with our lives I fully trust Clark and the robber. I am not desperate. They haven't done a thing to us on the contrary they have been very nice but you know off what I'm scared of is that the police will attack and causes to die. Somehow six bank-workers got into their heads that the police were developed not the criminals how? Hostages spoke of being well treated by the robbers and appears that they believed that the owed their lives to the two criminals on one occasion, a Claustrophobic Elizabeth Warren was allowed to leave the vault that become their prison, but only with the rope fixed around her neck, she said that at the time she thought it was very kind of Ulsan to allow her to move around the floor of the bank. When he treated us, well, we could think of him as an emergency God spend saves from was say and the concept of Stockholm Syndrome was born. The phrase was coined by Swedish criminologist and psychiatrist nils beard. Neal's. Jarrett's maybe hang hang hang is hard just figure out the emphasis and the American psychiatrists Dr Frank Oseberg, intrigued by the phenomenon went onto define the syndrome for the FBI Scotland Yard. His criteria included the following I people would experience something terrifying that just comes at them out of the blue, they are certain they were going to die. then. They experienced type of infant infantilism. INFANTILISM they they become babies. we're like a child they are unable to eat speak or go to the toilet without permission. Small acts of kindness that is being given food promise a primitive gratitude for the gift of life. He explains the hostage experienced a powerful primitive positive feelings towards their captor. They're in denial that this is the person who put them in the situation in their mind. They think this is the person who's going to let them live. In short psychologists believed that when a capture threat captives life deliberates and then chooses not to kill the captive. The captives relief at the removal of the death threat is transposed into feelings of gratitude toward the capture for giving him or her life, and it can take only a few days for this to occur. Dr Augsburg stresses that the the true cases of Stockholm Syndrome are rare. Making, identification complicated there are no widely accepted diagnostic criteria to identify the syndrome, which is also known as tear bonding or trauma bonding, and it is not an either of the two main psychiatric manuals, the diagnostic and statistical manual of mental disorders or the international statistical classification of diseases and related health problems. Making identification even further complicated some people who many consider as having Stockholm Syndrome deny having it. Austrian Natasha can. Push. Who was kidnapped as a ten year old by Wolfgang, a trickle pill was held in a basement for eight years in a suburb of Vienna. Crazy suck connection here she was trapped in the basement just an hour and a half away from where monster Joseph Frizzell had his daughter and his daughter granddaughters son grandsons trapped in his basement. And there appears of captivity of these periods of captive excuse. Me Overlapped One another for several years what the fuck is going on Austria anyways. When the TASHA's captured died, she reportedly cried for him and subsequently lit a candle for him as he lay in the mortuary but in a two, thousand, ten interview with The Guardian, Natasha, rejected the label of Stockholm Syndrome. Explaining that it doesn't take into account. The rational choices people make in particular situations. She said I find it very natural that you would adapt yourself to identify with your kidnapper. Especially, if you spend a great deal of time with that person is about empathy -cation, looking for normality within the framework of a crime is not a syndrome it's a, it's a survival strategy. Well whatever you WANNA call it. Survival Strategy Syndrome sounds sounds to me like Patty, hearst probably had it. She had a bunch of fellow Berkeley social activists, surrounding her telling her that her life have been allied day after day telling her that her family was what was wrong with America. Feel bad for had she not been kidnapped. She never committed the robbery she did unless you plan to be kidnapped, which we have no real proof of. What story? Donald freeze after being arrested released eight times after radicalized. Perhaps also been radicalized in prison by some Berkeley students eventually formed his own army, a small army, but still army, and they successfully took a newspaper heiress hostage and to freeze was but one of many revolutionaries who came out during the sixties and seventies in America and fans themselves as savior of the working person was. He a savior I mean, yeah. Negotiated some some food to be given to the poor but other than that. He just wrote and recorded a bunch of corporations or evil in the poor tired of being oppressed and some people have way too much money communist rally points that much cheerleading where he didn't do other than get some meals dished out was offer a better way. What exactly was your revolution going to accomplish? Donald. What if you did tear down the robber barons of the seventies did liquidate bank accounts of the hearse and other billionaires then what? What better system of government would you built in its place? What kind of communist would you have built? One my Stalin's US are maybe one like Pol Pot's. Cambodia. Maybe when like Mao Zedong's China or Castro's Cuba Laos. Laos has been communists hear about them a lot since nineteen, forty, five house that worked out. Now, now, well, if you value free speech and if you'd like to be randomly detained after some kangaroo court, no just fucking throws you in prison for some trumped up bullshit charges. A national happiness index global quality life index up and take a peek at the top twenty nations listed. You don't see a lot of communist nations usually zero why if they're so great? Outside. Of the food extortion situation to freezing army were just thugs posing as revolutionaries. Right? They assassinated a gifted education administrator rob banks wounded innocent customers killing one. Also tried to blow up some cop cars. We didn't even get into that right with police in them. in Alpha Wet. Because they didn't like the government. Don't like it go into politics try and change some things as my kinda wants to do I mean he's fourteen. So it's what he thinks he wants to do, but he wants to.

"He felt that she had stayed in the group and committed crimes with them definitely own free will. Ford stated that he felt it patty had found a community and the SA. He noted that her background was similar to many other SLA members who'd come from comfortable upper middle class homes forts. Expert testimony was incredibly damaging to Patty's defense, but perhaps the most damage was done by patty herself time and time again on the witness stand, she gave mono-syllabic answers to lengthy questions. She seemed disinterested she invoked her Fifth Amendment right not to answer questions over and over again because she was afraid, she might incriminate herself. She did a total of forty two times after it was all said and done the jury debated for just twelve scooby thought it was minister my nose she debated for twelve very intense hours.

The rest are either living free or dead. The this group changed some lives forever in terrible ways it never became into instrument of lasting change that it's few radical believers envisioned a report once asked member Bill Harris after he spent years in prison, what did you accomplish and replied nothing? mainly.

"Top things to maybe pass nourishment from one to another man got fucking Peter. We're so sick of this bullshit. Okay obviously the Peterberg stuff was me again. And obviously the entire family is taken aback by this message and also very fun to speak in that cadence with that kind of music in the background would have been fun to put out these measures. An WanNa patties four sisters goes on record saying she was sure that Patti been brainwashed by hearing one side of the story Randolph hearst expresses similar disbelief. You'll be Stephen We'd all I know it was a different time. It's still kinda creepy math tutor McGee. Who had acknowledged that? Maybe there had been a real change in paddy during her captivity saying I am reconciled to the idea that Patty must have matured a great deal in the past two months. I just want to tell Patty that I love her as much as ever and I think she knows that I can accept whatever she has chosen even though it may be hard for me I can accept it. Randolph is hearing this thinking damn. You really want. So my inheritance, don't you? Stephen. Needing to solidify hearst commitment to their cause and get some money to live off of the. SLA. Hastily plans a bank robbery in insisted I participate in it shortly after this last message goes out. On April Fifteenth Patty hearst and four members of the are caught on security camera holding the High High Bernie Hibernia Oh my Gosh Hibernia Bank at Fourteen Fifty Noriega at twenty. Second Avenue. If her family thought that they were shocked before now their minds are really blown five of the bank robbers including Patty entered. The bank will remain outside all make a getaway in two automobiles after firing several shots from automatic weapons and made off with almost eleven thousand dollars. The bank guard would later remark that patty quite comfortable with gun seemed according to him like she was ready to shoot anything or anyone who gotten away. Two civilians are shot during this robbery. Luckily, both will live. Of course, the big question on everyone's mind. Now, as a stories broadcast around the world complete with security camera footage patty definitely joining in on the robbery was whether hers was a witness or actually a perpetrator and no one is as interested in this question as as much as the FBI is the FBI has students at the Berkeley. School for the deaf read Patties, lips the security footage and find out she said I'm to Nia up up up up against the wall motherfucker. Her parents must have been losing their mind at this point. They just witnessed their privileged daughter go from kidnapping victim to a bank robber truly can't imagine. On April twenty third eight days after this bank robbery, the FBI issues a wanted poster with pictures of Donald Davie. Freeze. Patricia Michelle I hate her last name so much salt salsa sick Nancy Ling Perry Cumulus Christine. Hall and Patricia Campbell hearst across the country Americans continue to debate whether or not hearst participated willingly or was coerced. In a six audiotape released on April Twenty Fourth Patty offers evidence of her full participation in the bank robbery. She says that at no time did her comrades begun pointed at her? She now refers to her family as pig hearst's Nice. Pig hearst's and to Stephen Weed is an age just sexist pig she also says. As for being brainwashed the idea is ridiculous to the point of being beyond belief I am a soldier in the People's Army. So she's in she's real in She's one of the most gossiped about people in the in the country. Now, dinner conversation around the US Senate around. Did you hear lease message my got? A week later, may I stain just barely ahead of FBI agent searcher for them SLA members pack up their weapons applies move from a Golden Gate Avenue apartment to Oakland Street in the Bayview district the next day on May second the FBI find the abandoned Golden Gate Avenue apartment just missed him. Two weeks later on May. Sixteenth incident that will confirm too many that patty was indeed now voluntarily a member of the SLA. Patty was sitting alone in a Volkswagen while SA members emily and Bill Harris interest store in Los Angeles patties a fight break out between bill and the store clerk and to prevent the harrises from being arrested Patty shoots twenty seven thirty calibre bullets into the storefront in rapid succession. What the fuck guessing her mom cried a day. quite a bit more. The incident alerts lapd to the fact that the SA is in town, and this is not good for the SLA while the San Francisco PD was most used to dealing with petty crime at that time. The LAPD were a militarized force it had serious experience in both dishing out and dealing with violence. The next day on May seventeenth. Nineteen seventy four, the LAPD FINDS SLA members Donald to free Willie. Wolfe Patricia. So stupid name Camilla Hall Angela Would Nancy Ling Perry in a house in Compton and a shootout ensues with SWAT team members. Rather than risk civilians being shot, and because the SLA members refused to leave the apartment or excuse me refused to leave the house to police set the building on fuck and fire with gas canisters. Holy Shit a TV report announces that anyone in the house must be either dead or dying and the reporters right? All six SLA members die in the Compton. House. One four, six, six, east, fifty, fourth street, and for a while there is speculation that Patty is among the deceased that's not the case. The Harrison Patty hearst watched the shootout on TV from their motel room near Disneyland in Anaheim William Harris recalled. Later the Patty wanted revenge for the raid. Immediately, she wanted to kill some cops for killing both her lover and her leader, and for killing her friends people she now considered her family. She is full fucking SA despite the death of their founder and leader several key members the SLA not over on June seventh nineteen, seventy, four, seven tape recorded message sent to the Press Patty. Hearst offers a eulogy for those killed in the shootout. She proclaims her love for Willie Wolfe and vows that the SLA will continue its noble fight.

You find yourself thinking I won't freak out again because probably the lady bump but maybe it's a spider no thirty bucks or is it I don't know what not a winter too long now now when your head like Lady but David Peter I, told you take the ladybugs bucks shit out of the speech one insect references more than enough. We sound like idiots is a tape. So recording. Okay so I may have added the bug stuff, but the rest of the recording plate as I read it and it was a lot more to it. included in in Q. Statement was a demand that her family giveaway millions of dollars in food to the poor and the needy. Next came, they frightened voice of Patty hearst saying Mom Dad I'm okay. I'm with a combat unit that's armed with automatic weapons and these people aren't just a bunch of nuts. They've been really honest with me but they're perfectly willing to die for what they're doing and I want to get out of here. But the only way I'm going to is if we do it their way and I just hope that you'll do what they say dad and just do it quickly and I mean I hope that this puts you a little bit at ease and that you know that I really I really am all right I just hope I can get back to everybody really soon. Later. In the day, Randolph hearst makes a public statement and addresses his daughter directly. He tells that he's doing everything he can to get her out of there to take care of herself. Runoff hers is in contact with the FBI but he assures padding or kidnappers. No. One's GonNa bust in and start shooting cannot imagine how furious he must have been like how much he must have wanted to use his money and influence to destroy anyone associated with taking his daughter. Someone took one of my kids I would want to kill them myself. I wouldn't fuck why did I would just want them to die. Another demand soon followed when Angela. Atwood another SLA member informed the authorities. The symbionese war war council has determined that communication between POW Patricia hearst and her family will come only after the immediate creation of the necessary mechanisms. Russell Little Joseph Ramiro can communicate via live national TV with people and the SLA concerning the full scope of their physical health and all the conditions of their confinement. I love how they act as if they have a war council. By by war canceled you mean, Becky from Minnesota who has Berkeley Philosophy degree and considers not shaving her armpits or radical stand against the man or are you referring to Timothy from Seattle who hasn't worn shoes in two years and has been selling incense candles down by the ferry building before he joined the? SLA. These people think they are I part Randolph hearst is willing to accommodate the SLA's demand he must Godley hate them so much he said he'd do everything he could to get Russell little and Joseph for mural on the air the two members who have been arrested the previous month. However the FBI says, no, they're not willing to allow this. They think it's only gonNA, feed the leadership's. And make them even more dangerous. Like the right call on February thirteenth speaking to reporters camped outside his house. Randolph. Hearst reply to the SA demands saying that they were impossible by this time the S. l., A.'s constant barrage of accusations about how horrible the hearst's are are beginning to take their toll on. Patty? They've convinced her that our parents You know our negotiating for her ransom trying to spend less money. This makes her incredibly sad and scared I mean make sure they do they really care more about their money than about her life and then things get worse for Patty reports come in of a heavily all of armed FBI agents raiding a house where they thought Patty was being held petty filter parents were recklessly allowing the FBI to risk her life. Right Her dad said that they weren't going to do these raids. While extending the media coverage in performing for spectators she wasn't entirely wrong about the performance part pettis mom had done this weird thing she had taken to wearing black all black and speaking of Patty in the past tense. Her daughter hasn't even gone for two weeks yet. As pretty strange, how would you be if you were kidnapped and then like ten days later, your mom's on TV dressing all black talking about you like you're already dead. Worse her mom had ignored the demand by or one of the demands by accepting another appointment from then governor Ronald Reagan to be region of the University of California the ESA had told the hearst to sever their ties with Reagan the fascist. Patty said later I felt like I could have killed her when she did that my own Mother didn't care whether the SLA shot me or not. Only ten days in Patty starting to believe her family really doesn't care about her almost two weeks after her capture on February Sixteenth Ucla releases another taped message I or from hearst. And this one reveals a shift in her attitude towards her captors. She says I'm being held as a prisoner of war and not as anything else I mean I'm being treated in accordance with international codes of war also since I'm an example and it's really important that everybody understand that you know I am an example and a warning, and because of this, it's very important to the SA that return safely and so people should stop acting like I'm dead mom should get out of her black dress that doesn't help at all just.

Eight, thousand, ten, million dollar homes where did all this money come from the used to be even more wealthy than this actually the hearst corporation traces, its roots to one of the richest men of his era William. Randolph hearst, Patty's grandfather but the money didn't start with a Willie Randy. Willie Randy. was born rich son of another very wealthy man named George Hirst phoebe husband. A Patricia Great Grandpa George was a very successful American businessmen minor and politician born in eighteen twenty. And, George was not born into money. He's really where it starts. He was born very much a part of America's working class George Hirst was born near Present Day Sullivan Missouri, just under seventy miles southeast of Saint Louis. Children of Scots, Irish immigrants is grandfather was taken off a boat and onto American soil as a small child in seventeen, sixty, six numerous family members were granted farmland in the colony of south. Carolina. George grew up on a farm. One of three children grow up in a log cabin in Franklin County. No AC no central see no heat other than the law though with the stove. His education consisted of some some elementary school. nothing else not quite like a Menlo college or UC Berkeley level of education. George like his parents before him became Missouri farmer but he wasn't content with just farming. He wanted gold as gold in them hills, kind of gold. On eighteen twenty, nine, hundred was nine years old. There was a huge gold rush and Appalachian Mountains, of Georgia, by the way, and that word is to prevent emails I I did a little extra deep dive in on Appalachian Appalachian both totally acceptable people who live in the Appalachian or Appalachian Mountains say the word both ways. by eighteen, forty, most of the gold to be. In Georgia at least with eighteen forty mining tools was gone by eight and forty eight prospectors were flooding to California. They're heading West for some major strikes two years earlier. Eighteen, forty, six, Georgia's father died at age twenty, six became the head of the family interested in mining since he was a kid, he did a little bit of money locally not enough to improve his fortune and some substantial way. But enough to get a taste for how much the right strike could increase your fortune and enough to realize he was good at it. He had a knack for it. He was a man with a nose for valuable minerals. He did take off for California in eighteen fifty once the family was nice and set Missouri arriving near Sutter's mill on the American river over forty miles east of Sacramento he didn't find much his first winter west. He moved forty miles north after that to the grass valley and made a decent living run courts, mines ranching, and running a general store for decade wasn't wealthy yet but doing well. Then in the summer of eighteen, fifty nine, he buys a one six interest in the Oh for silver mine near Virginia City. Nevada. Super Cool. Little western town if you ever can swing through it. I love that little town and then the following winter thirty, eight tons of silver or are taken out of that mine. It produced a profit of ninety one thousand dollars close to three million in today's dollars just at first winner, which means I made the equivalent of half a million in any made that you know quick and you use that money to buy more shares of claims in mind such as the Ontario Silver Mine in Park, City, Utah the Anaconda mine in Butte Montana. He didn't just take that initial money and walkaway hoard it like some would have done. I could have done that but if he did, he would have never become wealthy you might have been well off but now wealthy instead of wealthy people do he invested his first big score in in chances to hit more big scores calculated risks and he did hit more and more big scores. Then in eighteen sixty two, he returned to Missouri at the age of forty two to be with his dying mother, and while back at home, he married nineteen year old phoebe Anderson, a local teacher known to have the nicest ass and all of Franklin county she was known by more people as sweet cheeks than she was by her birth name phoebe was a pagan nudist which was unusual for that part of Missouri at that time and many things she put a witch spell on George to convince him to marry her. and. Of course stuff I said after local teacher was true I know nothing. About notoriety or lack there of phoebe budgets I'm I'm guessing she would be shocked an appalled disgusted. If you heard me say that Georgia probably challenged me to do you know defender on her Eighteen sixty to the nation was engulfed in civil war and George decided to skip it. He Sweet Jake's kidding phoebe turn their eyes away from the strife of north versus south and just headed back West to continue building his fortune. They settled in San Francisco had their only child William Randolph hearst a Willa Randy in eighteen sixty three George continued to reinvest his money. He found a number of mining operation including the highly successful homestake mine in the Black Hills a South Dakota that mind didn't stop producing golden till two, thousand, one this this one mine. One of many George would own at least a large percentage of produce more than forty million troy ounces of gold during his lifetime. Gold was just over two thousand dollars an ounce, the other day forty, million ounces times two, thousand that's eighty billion dollars. George also began a career in politics shortly after returning west, he was elected to the California state assembly in eighteen, sixty, four one of a dozen men represent San Francisco in eighteen eighty he bought the San Francisco Examiner or if you believe the legend, he wanted gambling. So it was given to him to cover some gambling debts. This'll become the flagship of the hearst media empire, George himself never really care about it never really be a a big newspaper, Guy His. Son Oh, Shit. Georgia's appointed to be a US senator in eighteen, eighty six to fill a vacancy, and later that year is elected as a Democrat have remained a senator until his death in eighteen, ninety one and also puts on Willie Randolph in charge of the examiner in eighteen, eighty, seven, four years before his death and what's phoebe doing during all this living luxuriously she's traveled around Europe trouble on numerous times beginning eighteen, seventy three she's split time between a variety of lavish hearst homes in the bay area he's spoiled Little Willie Randy.

"So we had a truck a couple of signings by the Atlanta Falcons over the weekend right to pick up tight end Hayden Hurst from the Baltimore Ravens and they also acquired look Kwan Treadwell a former number one pick for the Minnesota Vikings yeah as the Atlanta falcons roster currently stands right now on offense alone just on offense they have a Levin former first round picks all of these former first round picks quarterback Matt Ryan first round pick Todd Gurley who sign when he was released first round pick Julio Jones first round pick Calvin Ridley first round pick the Quantrill first round pick Hayden Hurst first round pick left tackle Jake Matthews first round pick left guard James carpenter first round pick center Alex Mack former first round pick Chris Lindstrom the right guard former first round pick and right tackle Caleb McGary also that he first started his first round eleven is incredible let them all eleven of them a former first round pick I mean there's no way that's ever happened before right I can't believe that what ever but here's the real question if you had to redraft everyone of these players how many would be former first rounder this okay because I think this is fair Lidstrom McGarry and carpenter I've always been really what one or two years no it's been really since two thousand eleven okay yeah so let's remind me Gerry I think you were taken off or taken them out yeah okay so all of the other nine how many would be redrafted as a first round what's what's going on it's not right absolutely no question that runs for Todd Gurley no yeah I I would say no I would sit well I would say no one quite frankly his a conversation about the value of the position in general could also affect the new with him that was the thing coming out of college yes I look he has fifty eight rushing touchdowns over his first whatever seasons and all the other ones are either in the hall of Famer going let me just say six are we saying first rounder today or go back to the beginning again it would re drawing back to the beginning again because I'm currently the way Todd Gurley came out I mean would you not still take him in the first one that's the question now right are you going to pay for that kind of production from a running back anymore we saw Christian McCaffrey Leonard for net like there's been plenty examples of even a legal or not re signing a big second contract drafting a great one of the first round can still benefit you a lot okay I'm just trying to get to it you know is that what they've done in their right career does that mean where are the first roll worthy to me the girly thing is to your point he had a knee injury coming out of college and right when they signed with the red sign that long term deal with they're trying they got out of now then he was going to be chronic so to me the top group member he was the first one that airports reset the market for running backs and it turned out no he just re establish the old line of thinking but that first three years of production would you that would you spend a first round pick on that because we saw that rand's office how much in common now it always goes like this with the running game but in combination with an offense of line that did really well what you brought into what worth over would you pay for that as the foundation of your off I'm beginning to go the Melkite around here that I'm not sure running back as well because Melvin Gordon was in that same draft and Melvin Gordon is on his team I got an extreme I think that's the biggest conversation we could take out of this is the running back position record number mellow one point eighty never take a running back in the first Rana I wonder for we're slowly but surely going back to it I mean there was a contract a couple years ago with the first running back off the board was late second round out of Tennessee and I think we're going back to that after a bevy running backs being taken so we were definitely in on Matt Ryan yes we're out on Todd Gurley a legit is amazing looking back at Todd Gurley's draft class there's not a lot of got like if you're talking about reworking the top ten Todd Gurley might be the most wealthy in that group maybe outside of Amari Cooper yeah we can we can have that discussion later because that's in it read graphic I think is always fast and you have to wait a certain amount of time Julio Jones know quite well right Calvin Ridley first round too early again I think it's too early last year what he had sixty three receptions okay just under nine hundred okay seven touchdowns I would mean he also can't account for how bad that team ask me yes or no right now I'd say yes but I still think it might be too early Hayden Hurst no not because look they they took marketers later in the draft in the third round he clearly became the tight end of Baltimore which made Hayden Hurst by the way has taken in the first row before Lamar Jackson R. Jackson for Lamar starting you know tight on that team right now marketers you said right Hayden Hurst also dealt with some injuries and stuff there too that's okay in perfect sample size and when you have a guy come on like marquetry who could predict that the way that offense ended up of what he was the Mackey award winner a what he was coming home with one truck will no no Jake Matthews yes I think so I think so I think so do not I meet yeah yeah I mean yes he's been there he's been there is a second contract I also wrote a like doesn't miss a lot of games he's he's dependable yeah I think that's what it our printer are probably not I mean he's he's been a guy that's been in the league for nine years now dependable guy but we're talking about first round right you know I mean when you're twenty four we'll talk about for sure we're talking about top ten picks like a lot yeah yeah yeah I I'd probably lean toward no on that as well yeah yeah Alex Mack yeah absolutely yeah yeah and then the other than what we remember and I think Lidstrom would be headed in that direction yeah kill the guy who's more reach last year get killed the one I have questions about obviously we know the health concerns that existed before the draft earning a hard issue that he had had to deal with early in this time oxygen so there's a lot to hash out with those two but just I mean blows off the page when you just read that number the every single hundred dinners with that crew yeah what eleven Ryan still got its still on that ride to reach for the paycheck first but everyone else has to at least go for their wallets and act like there's also a common I do with you know with my dad so you got rid you got Ridley help you got got this R. Ridley Hearst links from a Gerry all still on their rookie deals you know wrecked yeah everybody else is is all for them yeah if I'm looking at yes correct so yeah they're all fascinating eleven a former first rounders on
Hi-Performance Heritage - The 1968 Dodge Scat Pack
"WELCOME TO TALKING. Mo- parts high-performance heritage man. The world is crazy right now folks. And if you're like me you're probably sick of hearing about the worldwide. Corona virus pandemic. Here's the good news. There will be absolutely no fear. Mongering Kovic nineteen talk here today. I hope you're staying healthy and safe and I'm here to give you a little escape from the chaos by talking Mo- parts with you together. We'll try to get our minds off of all this craziness. Twenty twenty and talk about what I believe to be the greatest year in mopey history nineteen sixty eight. The year that Dodge introduced the scat pack to an entire generation of horsepower junkies and change. The world of MOPE ARE FOREVER. There are just certain aspects of Mope our history that truly made a significant impact and the scat pack of nineteen. Sixty eight is one of those things but before we get started with project carved the week rev up the show with high performance parts get moving with listeners stories and shut down the show with high-performance. Heritage. There are two things you need to know number one Chris at talking Mo- Parts Dot Com. That's my email number two two zero nine. Twenty eight Mo par. That's my voicemail. Your voicemails will be shared on this show so please keep them appropriate. And so will anymo- par stories sent in for listener stories. I'll even share the emails that I think would make fun conversation on the show now that we took care that business. Let's get this show on the road. This week's project car of the week was the nineteen sixty nine. Plymouth road runner posted on the moped. Hunter Page Friday March twentieth at nine. Am here is the at Nineteen Sixty Nine Plymouth. Road runner numbers matching Bucket Seats Center Council. Hearst four-speed three eighty three and ninety six package original rims and build sheet runs dry scraper. Twenty five thousand. Five hundred or best offer not interested in low ballers condition is listed as good an title status listed as clean located in Webster. New York. Here's the thing folks. I like this car. It's numbers matching. It's got you know some desirable options the bucket seats center console. It's a four speed. It's got the end ninety six package and the guy's got to build sheet. He claims that it runs and drives. Great those are all good things and for twenty five thousand you know. I think he may be a little bit high on the price. The color of the car is kind of like a dark Emerald Green which? I don't believe it was a factory color looking in the engine bay. I see that it's kind of like a flat black. So that's one thing that annoys a lot of people for me. It doesn't bother me that much unless it's a fully restored car and they cheered out on the pain on the engine bay and they went black. I don't really like that. But you know a driver quality card no big deal. That can always be changed later on down the road. The car is cool. It's got the factory tack you know. Obviously bucket seats the console. Those are all great options and ninety six. Who who doesn't love the Air Grabber Hood? Come on and it's got that coyote duster air cleaner. The car looks to be in reasonable shape. If you look at the pictures of the guy posted the car does not look like a rob box. So that's a good thing. I think that this car has a really good bones and for twenty five thousand five hundred. I think there's a little bit of room to work there. I would like to see the price around eighteen thousand. So that's seventy five hundred off which is a fat chunk of change. Let's be honest so you know around. Twenty two is probably realistic. Twenty three twenty four. Maybe I don't know but for me. I think it's a great idea to spend low to mid twenties for running and driving car that you can enjoy so this is definitely a car that I think would be a good car to consider if you have that kind of money to throw around in a moped project because running and Driving Project. Cars are amazing. Why because you can enjoy while you're restoring them or modifying them. Whatever the case may be so. I think this is a great example of a you know reasonably priced project car and it is numbers matching which is desirable. And it's got to build sheets so that's cool so you know. It does have a picture of the fender tag here in the fender tag. Looks rotted so. Hopefully you know with the information on the build sheet and the original fender tag may get a re- pop vendor tag made and enjoy the cars restore it. He's got some pictures of the underside. The underside looks pretty clean. Doesn't look like there's any cancer. Even the trump pam looks really good. So I think this is a solid car to start with especially if you don't want to invest ninety thousand dollars on a restoration this has really good bones and it's always a good thing to start with a project that has good bones because then you're not doing a bunch of metalwork on it and you can focus on the things that really matter getting it running and driving tiptop condition. You know this guy says it runs drives great numbers matching. You WANNA preserve that. Engine so Mike for me. If I wasn't going for a Oh e quality restoration and I just wanted to drive the thing. I just drive the thing you know maybe pull the original engine out and put something else in. That's von and maybe just start with restoring the engine you know if what you're looking for is an OEM quality build start with the engine get that restored and then slowly work your way to the point where maybe it's time to tear apart the car and do the paint and body work. That's necessary to get it. In Primo condition. I liked that the seller shared the Haggerty Vehicle Valuation report that says Twenty eight thousand two hundred on in very tiny apprentices average value. He shared that as like a selling point that prices based on opinion desire ability. And all that stuff. He's asking twenty five five haggerty's average values twenty eight to I still think. Lower Twenties would be a great price for this car. But I also wouldn't have a problem paying you know around mid twenties for it just because it is numbers matching. That's Kinda hard to find in today's market for a reasonable price. And you know some people say you know twenty five thousand dollars. That's not a reasonable price. Okay that kind of money. Well then maybe you should look at something a little bit lesser than a sixty nine road runner decent quality roadrunners and any decent quality be body. That's somewhat desirable. 's GonNa Fetch a lot of money in this kind of condition and you know that's another thing what what is a lot of money you know is five thousand dollars a lot of money because I see a lot of cars that probably were ten grand that people are listening for fifteen to twenty and the potential buyers are lookie Loos. What have you will say? Oh that's a thousand dollar car. Well is it. Is it a thousand dollar car? Do you know what I mean. So pricing and the Mo par market right now is kind of iffy. You see a lot of different people that say vehicles are worth a tenth of what they're actually worth and then you see guys that will say you know. I pay that for car. That's clearly not worth the amount that is being asked. So there's a for every seat folks and you know. Some people got fatter wallets than others. My Wallet is Slim Pickens. It's gone on a series diet as of you know and I say Oh yeah. I would buy that if I had the money. I don't have the money so me saying that. It's kind of like saying yeah. I'd I'd buy a charger Daytona with a Hemi. If I had the money you know what I mean so take what I say with a grain of salt but I've seen you know hundreds maybe even thousands of these cars were sales since two thousand fifteen when I really started doing a deep dive into posting all these cars and finding them and seeing the values and you'll hear stories about guys that go and pull you know roadrunners out barnes. You'll see oh. They paid five thousand dollars for it and restored. The car is worth fifty thousand or whatever? I'm just throwing numbers out here. But that's uncommon. That doesn't happen every day. So you can't really base values of cars on prices from back in the eighties and nineties. Okay it's not the eighties and nineties anymore. We need to stop thinking like that. These cars the numbers are dwindling. Every time a car is found in a barn in a field in a old garage. That's one less to be found. The market's really interesting and it really is hard to predict but I will say that they're never gonna be as low as what the eighties and nineties were. I don't care what happens in the economy. This economy could tank six feet in the ground. And you're never gonNA find a charger for five hundred bucks and if you do get on the show. Let's talk about all right because I like hearing those stories too. I have buddies that have paid crazy prices for really cool. Be Bodies and bodies. You know. They're out there. I'm not saying that they're not out there. But the chances of you running into one for that cheap pretty slim and if you do there's a lot of guys that will triple your money right away. You know what I mean. So if you're looking for a quick investment car. Let's say you find this car that I'm talking about here on project car the week and once five grand for it. Well I'm looking at the car and I'm saying you know eighteen grand would be steel. In my opinion you get this car for thousand and you could easily flip it for fifteen. That's a ten thousand dollar come up. That's ten grand right in your pocket. It is what it is. So that's project of the week. Nineteen sixty-nine Plymouth road runner for twenty five five air. Grabber car numbers matching three eighty. Three four speed. What do you want consul? This things got it all. Let's try to get it for less than twenty all right. That's project car of the

VW Beetle Part III: From Hitler to Hippies
"Back to the epic conclusion of our three part series on the Volkswagen Beetle. It's been dark road the F. Are you guys a lot of really messed up stuff? But there's a lot of peace in love in the future. Yea here that this episode is about peace and love so I'm looking forward to. We're going to get there. Hey guys welcome to the. Pass Gas podcast. You like passed gas. Please help us grow by giving us a good rating and a nicer view on the podcast platform of your choice to really help us out. I really appreciate it. Thank you all right now for the show. When we last left off the Volkswagen Wolfsburg factory originally meant to Make Carson. People WAS BUILDING WEAPONS OF WAR INSTEAD. Wolfsburg was targeted by the allies and nearly destroyed but the war ended. Hitler was dead. It was time yeah. It was time for the Volkswagen to live up to. Its name is name was the people's car Ooh bye-bye now that the war was over. Germany was faced with the massive task of reconstructing a shattered country including resupplying. The transportation needs for the people after the war. Germany was divided into multiple zones. The British American Soviet and French sectors Wolfsburg was situated within the British sector and the factory was still under the British pocket book in the years after the war it was also under constant threat of being shut down but once the British and American sectors merged it became apparent that British Army Engineer Major Ivan. Hirst would be able to secure the necessary funding to keep the factory afloat. The country would once again be allowed to participate within the global free market in nineteen forty seven. Obviously these policies had a direct impact on the Volkswagen factory British officials representing the VW plant had continued to push further permission to export during all of these changes every single one of their requests export though had been denied but now the Germany was allowed to enter the market the VW plant was finally viewed as a way to ease the British expenses and in March of nineteen forty seven. The factory quotas were raised. The People's car would be allowed to be exported outside of Germany but only to the Netherlands Belgium and France. The first official export of the car occurred in August that same year? A massive total of five cars were exported and the process was a difficult. One selling quote. Hitler'S CARS TO COUNTRY. Hitler try to Concord. Seemed kind of absurd but it wasn't Hitler's car anymore. So anything can happen. I think they should should stop calling Hitler's car if they want to sell it. Probably not the best marketing hooked. This is a great car. This was Hitler's car. It was obvious that British Army Engineer Major Ivan. Hirst couldn't run the plant forever. He was a military man and while he loved his position at the plant he had a larger job that took priority but each time they tried to take her out of the factory chaos ensued. He ran a tight ship soon enough. The search for a replacement began but for the volatile plant to return to German hands. It needed someone who had expertise when it came to running a major factory. Former Opel head Heinrich Nordhoff. Remember him from the last episode mentioned him he had been barred from working in the American business sector since he had been given an award from the Nazis. A FEW YEARS PRIOR ON K. Not a good look opal was controlled by GM. And Mr Nordhoff was forced out of his job. Due to America's quote no nonsense policy on Nazi involvement after the war you know other than hiring Nazi scientists to develop bombs and stuff. Yeah and like the entire space program. Yeah let's not talk about. Yeah that's true Operation Paper Clip. Look it up. When it came to looking for a factory manager Nordhoff. He might sense. He was experienced in managing factories and since the VW plant was under British control. He was actually allowed to work there on January. First of nineteen forty eight Heinrich took up position as managing director of the Volkswagen. Plant by recommendation of major hearst upon his arrival to Wolfsburg Nordhoff noted that the factory still looked exactly like it did during the war. It was basically a pile of ruins that could somehow produce cars so he knew he had a lot of work to do. So we got the work while he was meant to report to hearst with each action the roles were kind of reversed. It was obvious that Nord off was the expert and no one complained. Once you took control. The first thing Nordhoff did was replaced all the English signs back to German ones. Oh that's the bathroom is been peeing in jars from meanwhile nineteen forty. Seven was a terrible year for Ferdinand. Porsche he had been moved from his original prison to the Dank Dungeons in dijon into John. That sounds like your APP album named Dude Dank dungeons dungeons. That's pretty good good anyway remember. He had been arrested by the French. Police For colluding with Hitler Hitler. Yeah that guy so at this prison in the in Dijon. They were not even given beds all around him other men involved in the war. We're being sentenced to death in the Nuremberg trials. So at least Porsche was better off than that. After twenty two months Porsche and his family were released from the French prisons and declared not guilty of their crimes as the French government only tried him regarding the forced labor of French prisoners The Porsche Corporation to this day still denies the use of forced labour in their factory. At the time just it's better just to come clean about it. You know. Yeah Yeah I mean there's no way right. There's no way that they didn't. I don't know the rest of his record was sort of six months after his arrival to the Volkswagen Factory Heinrich Nordhoff was still sleeping on the factory. Floor on a flimsy. Kat issues plagued the factory especially the lack of housing but most importantly there wasn't really a local market for the cars. Germany was still dirt poor. And those who have the money to buy car tended to steer clear of the word. Volkswagen makes sense also. The factory was amazingly inefficient. It took workers in a reported three hundred hours to build a single car so nordhoff had to reshuffle the factory line in order to imitate the successful style of the lines in Detroit. Normally that Nordhoff expertise allowed him to play with the budget. A little bit. Nineteen forty-nine was the first year the factory was given a firm quota of forty thousand cars and nord-ost reshuffling allowed the cars to be produced over two hundred dollars under budget nor off also rebuilt the factory. He figured out that having bombed out walls and ceilings. Kinda hurt company around. Yeah I remember when our office got blown up. That was really tough to come to work every day. Yes like where do I plug my charger in? Yeah there's no wall. Where am I snack? All my snacks. So Heinrich had the place tidied up a little bit. Most importantly he completely changed the entire decision making power structure of the factory. Using a general manager who controlled multiple departments head on and so on while that's super commonplace. Now this was revolutionary at this time in German history but ultimately the company was still controlled by the British government and while they remain about as far out of the picture as they could heinrich still had to answer to them in the end.

"In December of nineteen seventy-three they started plotting a kidnapping for their target. They landed on the heiress in their own own backyard. Berkley Student Patricia Campbell hearst. It's not provable but perfectly possible that SLA members met Patricia Tricia prior to her kidnapping. It would have been easy enough for the gang to recruit the wayward young woman. In addition to her less than Happy Circumstances Patricia Asia had a rebellious streak. She'd been kicked out of Catholic school as a teen and was growing marijuana in her back yard. Even her fiance was her high school's former math teacher. Her parents did not approve but they did publish the engagement announcement in their newspaper.

Some people believe the events of February be wary fourth nineteen seventy four came about a little differently. Some people think Patricia wanted to be kidnapped and even planned it herself in the year. Preceding her kidnapping. Patricia openly admits to being miserable even suicidal she. She wasn't fitting in at Berkeley and attempt to patch up. A failing relationship with an engagement. Ring wasn't going so well either. She wanted out but didn't know how to change her life at the same time. A very different group of Berkeley students also wanted out. They dropped out of school to become radicals helping to form a group that called itself the Symbionese Liberation Army or sa the SLA saw itself as a revolutionary band but functioned as a destructive cult. The leader Donald defrays Aka sink. You was an escaped convict with almost total total psychological control over the nine other members. They indoctrinated each other with intense rhetoric. The most important being the idea that in order to overthrow capitalism and create the world they wanted to live in the SLA had to commit newsworthy. Crimes these attention attention. Grabbing crimes would inspire other acts of rebellion leading to global revolt and a communist new world.
Group Nine's Geoff Schiller: Legacy media organizations have caught up
"Welcome to the digital podcasts. and Brian Marcy. Today I'm joined by Jeff Schiller Jeff is newly minted. Ciro Groom from nine. Jeff came over from the pump sugar acquisition which just close to a couple of weeks ago a couple of weeks ago. Okay so look. You're part of pop sugar for a while as as an independent entity As a partner like what. What is the potential you see? You know joining forces with group nine and in its portfolio of brands. So it's really interesting. The marriage is such a perfect marriage at a molecular level because the brands pop sugar Seeker Dodo now. This realis- they all have a common theme very optimistic very positive. And that's a through line and so I think just generally speaking that helps for a monetization perspective when we go out to market and we say look our companies bound by optimism. You can kind of think through how one plus one can eagle three so I think on a foundational level. The editorial alignment of saying thrillers. Just wants to help you kind of experience. The unexpected whether it's from food drink or travel or pop sugar wants to help you as a female kind of just explore all the areas that Define you versus versus just being relegated to one bus lifestyle. But then he got now this but now there's a little bit of the outlier right to some extent. I mean the way that I think about. Now this is yes it is news and and News is kind of core to what it started as a couple of years ago but I think as a brand it really reflects the currency in terms of what young people care about which is issues. And so it's it's the Lens in which they consume. It is news but it's really more so for young people issues climate climate change equality etc.. Those are really what define now this and you could argue. Certainly they're potentially depressing stories. That are out there but the lens that there are lots of depressed race out. I try to be an optimist but the Lens. Now this Kind of kind of takes through who These these complex issues to really be positive and hopeful and so it is the most utility driven versus being lifestyle driven but I also again that positive through line kind of makes it easy for us as we think about the future and monetization. So we're we're recording this before the holiday break and then You'll you will be heading off immediately to to see us which I will not be on the genus. Sorry good luck with that but you'll be meeting with lots of different marketers and and stuff like this and this maybe it'll be the first time since the merger went went through Wha what's your like sort of top line message for why they should care. Wise is a good thing for are your partners so I can answer that. Through two lenses one is more from the kind of larger macro conversation that's going on and the other would-be more from a client facing perspective macro wise merger mania. Whatever we called it a lot of these companies got together out of necessity Out of survival and pop sugar and group nine got together because it made sense because it was thought you were going to say that they got together for survival survival. No no no we we. It was not under duress. You had our chief officer Brian. I did And the profitable notable pop sugar kind of playbook and you had group nine the dominant stake in in reaching young people dominant stake in social video. Everything everything came together from a complimentary perspective including Brian and Ben who have known each other for a long time but really through even down to what they're passionate about you know I. It's all super complimentary so I think that on the macro level weren't out liar because we're like I said we'll be a case study for success success in terms of merger mania also because it wasn't done GonNa State of duress okay. Are you talking about refinery. I'm not tired. Whatever are you talking about? I'm not talking about anyone in particular on the client facing side in terms of value. So you have this really big list of of consolidated media companies. The VOX is the old school ones. The Conde's the hearst the meredith the vices the bustle digital groups for us us when we talk about young people. It's number one. We reached them at scale and number two. They spend more time with us than anyone else in the entire competitive set and so that is third party. Syndicated that's not our made up proprietary. Whatever that's com score in terms of actual time spent and attention for us is that at core currency from you know what we think the future cohorts in Gen y Gen Z.? Trade on it's you know. I want to be captivated by something and captivate them more than anyone else in the competitive set so I wanNA push on the scale thing for a little bit. Why is scale still pretty important because a a lot of people have come on this podcast and sort of been like skills dude skills dead and like not really I mean scale drives a lot of this and for what you're talking about You know adding together all these different brands. you're gonNA have a single salesforce right absolutely tech stack single all these sort of things. There's a bunch of efficiencies. I'm sure that come out. Like you know everyone when they announced sees mergers. Try Not to talk about this but like there. It is more efficient. But there's a a lot of advantages to having a bunch of brands under one roof. So I think that nothing's ever truly really new and so you look at the magazine. Zine companies their portfolio of brands. They have the same shared services model. One printing press one back office. There's a reason I mean conde still trying to get there. You're for sure but other other brands. The hearst Meredith Lega those have been in existence for a really long time for a reason because in order to scale you need to have that back office support that isn't replicated across every single brand so there's the economic scale which is shared services and then there's the audience scale. which is you have to be big enough to matter absolutely critical in a world where you have facebook? It's the same narrative facebook and Google and Amazon and target and Walmart Media Group. All of those guys out there. That are huge scale is is is is I guess the way that I frame it upscale is is no longer a lead statement. It's more of a check box right so if you don't check that box then you're going to be in trouble and it's like anything. I mean we keep talking about this and these these different podcasts. Hell the the middle gets gets crunched. And it's easy to fall into to the metal but I mean I guess together. You'd think that you guys are are not in the Middle Lake are are one of the scale players. Oh Yeah No. It's not even a thought it's factual we are number one. Overall in terms of time spent from Com score perspective were number one in terms of social The Olsen Dr Com score both say the same thing so I think within our larger competitive set of all the brands is that I mentioned. We are a clear leader and that competitive set you you think it's not it's not quote unquote just the the the vox is The bustles but it's the the I'm GONNA another quote unquote like the traditional like the hearse. The Conde's absolutely that narrative of them being behind is it in my mind a two year old narrative and I'm not talking about restructuring. I'm talking more so about audiences. They were behind. They looked at digital pure place. Copied their playbook playbook and I think I think they're pretty caught up so we have to consider them a credible threat to our business and to try to take whatever share they have that is legacy and bring it our way.
