"O k three very quick stories now from arizona here coolidge. Police arrested a man who claimed that he had been kidnapped near first street in northern avenue. Here's the thing though. He wasn't kidnapped he just didn't want to go to work. We've all been there. Casagrande dispatch that just means big house right gossip 'grande like is it a newspaper all about those who got arrested like the big house prison. The the big house dispatch reported at around five twenty five pm on february tenth. Police say they found a nineteen year. Old named brandon soules near a water tower with his hands bound behind his back and bit. Dana's stuffed in his mouth. Brandon told police that he was kidnapped by two masked men he says. The men knocked him unconscious then. Drove him around in a vehicle before finally leaving him by a water tower. Here's the thing that's not. Typically what kidnappers would do like they. They would kidnap you. And then like steal all your money hijack your car hold you for ransom or something like they just took this guy for a ride and then dropped them off by a water tower. That was pretty much. That was the whole kidnapping. There was no fucking purpose to it. Maybe this was part of some sort of kidnapping onsite training program. I mean he was taken by two masked men maybe one of them was the teacher. One of them was the student which could going to go through the motions. Here going to pick out a guy the blindfold rome in the car will drive them around few blocks drop them right back off somewhere. I'm gonna let you take the lead here just going gonna sit back and observe and then at the end. I'll let you know what you did ride and what you did wrong. They always say the best way to learn is to do rack. This you know. All right Coolidge detectives conducted investigation. That found no evidence that a kidnapping or assault took place officers. Say when they looked at surveillance video to corroborate the story of him being it over the head and stuffed in the car in front of his home. They saw no signs of his story. Being drove also alleged kidnapping occurred because a large amount of money that his father had hidden around down which was also fabricated was arrested on february seventeenth for false reporting to police officers. Say that brandon admitted that he made up the entire story just as an excuse to get a work coolidge. Police say the man was probably fired from his job at the tire factory. Like i understand not wanting to go to work and then doing something else right like i got tickets to the game. But i can't go because the fucking word you know what this guy did. Instead of working on his day off. He bound his hands stuff to ban danna in his mouth and talk to the police. All day just go for your fucking four hour shift to change. Tires are next time when you call off work. Use a simpler. Excuse when that won't get the cops. Involved i i i have to go for a covid test. I was in contact with someone. I've got coughs and chills. I don't even understand how this all went down right. So out of the police get involved. I'm guessing the guy called work and was like oh my god. I'm so sorry. I missed my shift. I was just kidnapped. But how could he call work with his hands being bound in the bandannas stuffed in his mouth. Maybe he didn't call work before him. But how did police find him. I just don't get what this kid was trying to accomplish here. All right there are better ways to go about it. Second story we have for you today. That one from scotland james mckenzie's bat outta piece of his own tongue onto the street. Okay i like where this story's going started off pretty solid. Let's see if it continues in crazier all right. James mackenzie spat out a piece of his own tongue onto the street after bethany ryan twenty-seven ripped it off with her teeth during in incident. A siegel get crazier then flew down from the sky and grabbed the tongue bit making off with it before the injured man could retrieve it. Sheriff's court was told about the grisly incident which left the victim maimed for life. And he's probably gonna talk with a lisp.

"I only asked you a question. So get your head screwed on straight and get your gary straight. that's why i'm playing this clip. What is she supposed to get. Screwed on straight screwed on straight and get your gary straight murrah. Unstrained prerogative straight. i think maybe she's saying her baraga. I don't know what the hell's trying to say her aug. Four now our no shenanigans and get your parague ary straight iraqis and get your derogatory strait. It'd be that's supposed to be like a jewish term. Does anyone to speak jewish idiot. Please email me curious. As to what the hell's she was trying to say real quick before we get into the news. I've got a short story. I've told you guys this before. But i really enjoyed problem bowel movements. You know the kind that gets your stomach cramping. I don't know there's something about sitting on the toilet cramping up working out whatever it is inside of you. I i like it. I think it feels great. Well i've got someone here who i think really gets me. Your shit soul mates here. We go. I love to have diarrhea. One of my favorite things to do is take a laxative on weekends. When i have absolutely nothing to do well now. Now you've got something to do. Wait around shit and i know i'll be at the house all day. Sometimes when i can't wait the eight hours a laxative. we'll take. I'll do a salt water flush. I'll be peeing out of my butthole in thirty minutes. I've even found that for me. One hundred percent grapefruit juice will do the trick. If i drink half a calendar in a day there are so many aspects of it that make it one of the best experiences the first aspect i love is the rush just about my business and then all of a sudden i know i might poop my pants. It's an exhilarating feeling. Isn't it see. I don't like that feeling. This is where we differ. If i'm sitting on the toilet. And i get that feeling that i'm that's great but i don't like near accidents all right that it's time to get on a toilet right now and nothing else matters it's an adrenaline rush. Yeah it is similar to skydiving. I find find skydiving diving. Rock climbing shopping at a grocery store when you're laxative hits you got rush to the toilet. It's all really the same thing it's an adrenaline rush when the stomach starts to gurgle and you know you can't stop what's about to happen that i'm totally at the mercy of my bowels. The second aspect. I love is simply the feeling i love the feeling of relief i get it my stomach a man. I'm back with you now. The feeling of it rushing out of my butthole and it's one of those good burn feelings in the butthole to now. I don't like the burning sensation. I love that fiery butthole bird that you you go to white fiery butthole burns that when you go to wipe it's kinda like you're scratching that ultimate edge to put it simply from start to finish. The feeling of diarrhea has multiple aspects. That i'll feel good. What if i'm reading a college students dissertation. This is their final paper. There's admitting to get their degree. They decided to do their paper on the fiery butthole burn. Give that man diploma all right where we had here. I'm sorry Yeah there are multiple aspects at. I'll feel good. And all of them have their special place in my heart. The third aspect. I love others more okay. How many aspects are there here. The third aspect. I love is the smell. No easy lost me now. It's like when you have a good fart and it stinks really bad and you kind of sniff it in and you're like dang. I just did that at your baby. Look what you made. The smell of diarrhea is like i just opened a sewer line right in my toilet and i love it. It's just a great sent to sit there and enjoy for a minute nasty type. Good that makes you feel a little dirty. The fourth aspect have to be looking at what came out just standing to wipe and looking at what wants us to be perfectly clean. Toilet is now black. Just black water with black. Splatter all around the bowl of the toilet. I love to be brown. Like you're shitting tar. You got a problem. I love to stand there for a second and look at it and say dang. Look all the bad stuff. I just expelled from my body. That's a great feeling looking at it. And knowing you just purged to put it simply. I highly recommend diarrhea. I think the most disturbing part of this story is the fact that the person stands up to wipe his or her diarrhea. You can just stay sitting on the ball. Just lift your ass up standing and diarrhea do not mix you're going to get some drip edge or semi solid fecal matter tumbling down your butthole and your legs just seems like it's it's all going to result in more cleanup than necessary but hey you have your preferred method. You like your diarrhea the way you like your diarrhea all right. Let's get.

Finding the One (Therapist Who Gets You)

"Hi my name is era. I am twenty four years old and am from texas a small town in texas. So i hadn't really talked about therapy danny body or heard about their p for the most part because it's not something that was discussed in my family or at my school with my peers. There's such a stigma around in the black community is not something that i thought i'd ever need until i got to college. And so once. I went to college and i started struggling a little bit especially since i went to. Ap w i primarily why institution. I felt pretty isolated. And eventually i decided i e. I need to do something about this. Some of the things that i wanted to talk about specifically dealt with me being a black woman. And that's something that's hard to talk about with people. Who don that experience directly. Czar barnes executive editor. Here itself has written a lot about mental health in general and mental health black people specifically so when care wrote to us i was like i have talked is are we work together but we've never actually interviewed each other before so this is a new milestone zarin. I talk basically all day every day. Not in this context though pretty much constantly slacking constantly getting on zooms. But i'm excited to do this. Which is a little different for us back in june. Sarah wrote this incredible article. Forty four mental health resources for black people trying to survive. In this country there are list of people and organizations to follow directories and her own words of encouragement and support. Let's tell the story from the beginning like what was happening that week. That made you decide. I have to write this. I mean it was just the constant flood of honestly traumatizing news about violence against black people. In this country this was right around the time. When the protests about george floyd stuff were really kicking off in earnest and in my role as the journalist over multiple years. I've had to cover news while also having a lot of feelings about the news but it has never been this intense for me as it was that week zara knew that if she was having a hard time finding mental health resources for herself and her friends after all her years of reporting on this. She probably wasn't alone. She wanted to do something to help. Change that. And to normalize the conversation. There still so much stigma when it comes to talking about health in our society in general. But there's also a very specific stigma that can come with talking about having a hard time with mental health black person we've talked about the strong black woman trope a lot at self. That was a big part of our cover story with trudgy p. Henson the idea that black women are kind of supernatural strong and we can handle anything and we don't suffer and we never have a hard time there is a corresponding trope for black men. And even though i feel like people have done a lot to break down those barriers culturally. There still is just this pervasive idea. That having a mental health issue as a black person is first of all not something that happens. And second of all if you're dealing with it it means you're abnormal or your weak or something's wrong with you and you need to hide what you're going through and i feel really proud when i even look at the headline of the story. Forty four mental health resources for black people trying to survive in this country. Because i feel like it sends a couple of messages it first of all says if you are just simply trying to survive day to day as a black person that's completely valid and that's a worthwhile goal and then it also says there are all these mental health resources so you cannot be the only person going through this. There are not forty four mental health resources just for you. it's for everyone. it's because there are so many of us also dealing with us in her reporting zara focuses a lot on barriers to accessing mental health. Care the things that get in the way of people getting the help that they need and one of those barriers is the stigma as she says but there are other major stomach barriers to being able to access. mental health. services is such a tremendous privilege. I mean first of all you have the cost even if you have insurance absolutely adds up. I've seen a lot of people talk about having to see their therapist once a month instead of once a week because even their co pay is simply not affordable for them and dot is a travesty. At the cost of it is especially the fact that so many therapists don't accept insurance so that adds an additional barrier.

I was doing some more research on this and basically what the mass does. It just creates an inclusive environment the same way like your pimple patch does when you're healing pit bull that's good in some cases but not when you're using active ingredients so hey guys out there if you don't have mask knee. Heavy notions really read or the sides. Of your mouth cracking. Maybe he's a retinoid.

Wildfire-Ravaged Washington State Farming Town In Limbo As It Awaits Aid To Rebuild

"Almost three months ago, A wildfire destroyed most of a farming town in Washington state mold in Washington is still waiting for the Trump Administration to respond to the States Disaster declaration request. NPR's Kirk Siegler reports that many of the town's mostly lower income residents have had to rely on donations while they wait when historic wildfires overwhelmed the West Coast. In September, the governors of California, Oregon and Washington followed Standard protocol and asked President Trump to declare a major disaster. That frees up millions in federal aid for everything from temporary housing the cleanup to rebuilding infrastructure after some politicking and tweeting these air blue states after all, California and Oregon's major disaster declarations were mostly quickly approved organ heard nine days after their fire, and their fire was on the same day as ours. September 7 2020 Scott Hawkinson says it's been 71 days since Washington asked the president for its disaster declaration. On Labor Day, A wind driven range fire destroyed approximately 80% of homes in mold in Washington, including Hope Henson's, He's on the Town council and is trying to lead its recovery task force. The fires were worse overall in California and Oregon. Thankfully, nobody died in Maldon. But most of it's some 300 residents were uninsured and already living on the economic margins. But to see this on the news reports that you know the FEMA trailers are rolling in to help some people. We're in exactly the same condition. It just makes you wonder. Even in the best of times where we at did we get for gotten so fire survivors are left only to speculate. Is this politics bureaucracy just incompetence. In a brief email of FEMA spokesperson told NPR only that the administration is still reviewing Washington's request. Waiting this long and not even getting denied. Aid is extremely unusual. Yeah, I've never heard of this happening before Carolyn Kousky runs the Warden Risk center at the University of Pennsylvania. Delays create a lot of extra costs for families for the community. And the longer it takes, the more those cost can ripple and create problems, problems like delays and getting people into basic temporary housing or just cleaning up the town. And the longer Molden is in limbo, Kousky says. The harder it gets to try to rebuild smarter and more resilient against the next seemingly inevitable wildfire. This is what Scott Hokanson, the town councilman, has been trying to push even with so many people, including himself in crisis right now were hampered and how much we can move forward in which direction we could go until we hear from Dina Hawkinson says. The mayor recently resigned. So did the city clerk and there are real worries. Maldon won't rebuild and may empty out. He's trying to stay upbeat night chuckle because it's gotten to the point where it's not funny that way. It's just you have to laugh or else you'll cry. Kirk Siegler NPR

"Brad pitt and lady gaga together. I know my head just exploded as well. We're told gaga is in talks to star alongside brad and the action thriller bullet train. The film was based on a book. And it's about five assassins who find themselves on a train. Under mysterious circumstances no word yet which character gaga will play. But i'm here for this these two on screen Do you think they'll have a love scene. Do you think the pairing them together. There are rumors that her role is kind of a supporting role as a lead role. Yeah i don't know if. I see a love scene although i couldn't even imagine bradley cooper and gaga having a love scene and then once i got it i was obsessed with it and needed more. I almost feel like they're going to be partners in crime like the buddies in the not like a buddy cop type vibe to bad guys ride alongside each other but they're not going to be making out swapping saliva or anything like that. I don't see it for them.

California Firefighters Battle Nearly 2 Dozen Major Wildfires

"Wildfires have now burned more than four million acres this year, and Sarah Husseini OFC reports that's more than double the previous record for an entire year. More than 16,000. Firefighters are still battling nearly two dozen major blazes throughout the state with a couple months of fall fire season still ahead. In Northern California is wine country More than 52,000 people have been evacuated as a result of the glass fire. Among them are the Henson's who have set up a borrowed RV for themselves and their three dogs outside an evacuation center in Santa Rosa. We've been evacuated three out of four years, Jessica Hansen says. This time they had no warning. She says she realised the worst was coming. When she walked out of her house on the seven acres atop the mountain. They call home and saw fire climbing from both sides as soon as we got to the top of our driveway We knew we were going to her house. But abandoning the land her family has lived on for generations is unthinkable. Henson says she's already focused on rebuilding despite not having any homeowner's insurance. Husband, Alton Henson says they'll have to rely on the federal Emergency Management Agency and groups like the Red Cross. All right now we're registered with FEMA and all then and apparently they're supposed to give us Temporary housing or they'll put trailers on our property until we re building. We're just waiting for that, but they can't do nothing in tow were considered disaster. Last week, Governor Gavin Newsom asked the Trump administration to declare the latest blazes, including the glass fire, a major disaster. Meanwhile, the weather is starting to cooperate with weary fire crews in the form of calmer winds, cooler temperatures and clear skies over the weekend, which allowed aircraft to fly over the steep and rugged terrain and make some big gains. Cal Fire spokesman Erikmenendez his office in ST Halina is located not far from where the blaze began. I can tell you that, looking out my window for the past week. I haven't seen the beautiful mountains that were known for, so it's very refreshing to see the mountains again. At a community briefing Sunday, Cal Fire incident chief Sean Norman was cautiously optimistic. We're feeling good about her lines were not done with this fire, yet it's been a stubborn fire. We don't consider the fire contained or controlled. It'll be weeks before we get to that benchmark. But that does not mean that we feel an imminent threat to any specific community Officials say they're hand picking local firefighters or those with previous experience in problem areas to help keep it that way. For NPR News. I'm Sarah Husseini in Santa Rosa, California.

It's the Little Things

"For want of a nail, the shoe was lost for want of a shoe. The horse was lost for want of a horse. The rider was lost for want of a writer the message was lost for want of the message the battle was lost for want of a battle, the kingdom was lost. Small things can have reverberating effects on history both good and bad. In fourteen fifty three, the great walled city of Constantinople fell it had withstood sieges for eleven hundred years. It had held off fire from the then state of the art cannons for weeks. The Byzantine said even Ford soldiers trying to tunnel under the wall autumn Turks were finally able to overrun the great city because someone left the door open. One of the many gates in the fourteen miles of wall had been left open during the night and the Ottomans flooded in. Killing Constantine the eleventh in the battle and bringing an end to the eastern Roman Empire. My Name's Moxy and this is your brain on facts. It was a freezing Christmas night in Trenton. New Jersey during the revolutionary war. The English Colonel Johann Gottlieb Rall. Commander. Of a mercenary infantry regiment of fourteen hundred has seen soldiers from Germany sat down to a good supper and an evening of entertainment. He and his men were celebrating their recent victories over George Washington's volunteer army, and of course, the Christmas holiday. Safe from the bitter cold and the pelting sleet inside a wealthy merchants home that they had commandeered. They relaxed safe in the assumption that no one in their right mind would possibly try to cross the Delaware River at night in a blinding winter storm. Someone challenged role to a game of chess, and before long he was deep in tactics and strategy. There was a knock at the door. And exhausted young. Messenger boy came in bearing a note from loyalist farmer. It's important to remember that about a third of colonists still consider themselves to be British and didn't want the revolution. Raw paid the boy little notice took the note and put it in his coat pocket without opening it. That pocketed piece of paper would cost him and the war effort nearly. Two hours earlier and ten miles away. Washington's men had begun being ferried across the icy Delaware. River. It took over ten hours to get all twenty four hundred men over to the New Jersey side. The conditions were so adverse five men froze to death. Then began the arduous march to Trenton in the dark. The plan had been to attack the town from all sides before dawn, but the troops didn't arrive until eight am. During the attack which lasted only an hour forty of the German. Henson's were killed and the remaining thousand surrendered. Colonel was mortally wounded. When his body was found the unopened note warning of Washington's crossing was still in his pocket. If role had read it, he would surely have had his gross of professional soldiers prepared. He allowed his pride and the weather to lull him into thinking his enemy was not a threat. Had he won the battle he may well have killed George Washington James Madison James Monroe John Marshall Aaron Burr and Andrew. Hamilton The. Second, most common premise in alternate history circles behind what if Germany won World War Two is what if the south one the American civil war? Two pieces of paper dropped in a farmer's field almost brought that about. Confederate General Robert E. Lee. Whose statue in the middle of my hometown of Richmond, Virginia has recently been given the historical context. It's so sorely needed. In the form of tons of. Graffiti. Issued Special Order one ninety one during the Maryland campaign before the Battle of Antietam. In the order lead divided his army, delineating the routes and roads to be taken and the timing for the units to reconvene. Adjutant Robert H Chilton penned copies of the letter endorsed them in Lee's name. Staff. Officers distributed the copies to various confederate generals. General Thomas Stonewall Jackson in turn copied the document for one of his subordinates, major general, D H Hill who was to exercise independent command as the rearguard. A Union soldier Corporal Barton W Mitchell of the twenty seven. Th Indiana volunteers found two pieces of paper bundled with three cigars as he marched across a farm in Maryland an area recently vacated by Hill and his men after they had camped there. The order provided the Union army with valuable information, concerning the army of Northern Virginia's movements and campaign plans. Upon receiving lease lost order. Major General George McClellan leading the Union army of the Potomac proclaimed. Here is a piece of paper with which if I cannot whip Bob Ely, I will be willing to go home. He immediately moved his army in hopes of foiling lease battle plans. When Lee heard a copy of special order one, ninety, one was missing he. He knew his scattered army was vulnerable and rushed to reunite his units Antietam Creek near Sharp's Berg. Lee's troops arrived tired hungry and many were sick. The Battle of Antietam, would go down as the bloodiest battle of the American civil war with casualties recorded as twenty, three, thousand dead wounded, which was usually as good as dead or unaccounted for over the course of the half day battle. That's nearly two thousand soldiers in our one every two seconds. When night fell both sides ceased fire together, their dead and wounded. The next day Lee began the painstaking job of moving his ravage troops back Virginia. Here, some scholars argue another solitary decision had far reaching consequences. Despite having the advantage. McClellan. Allowed Lee to retreat without resistance. From his point of view, he'd accomplished his mission by forcing Lee's troops from Maryland and preventing confederate win on union soil. President, Lincoln however thought McClellan missed a great opportunity to potentially end the war three years earlier than it ultimately would.

Apple acquires the full Fraggle Rock collection in first major licensing play

"And here's another interesting apple acquisition if you will. Apparently apple is involved in a reboot of the once popular kids TV Staple Frugal Rock. That's been under development at apple for a while now to be released on Apple. Tv plus it's involving a full partnership with the Jim Henson Company and it makes sense as Netflix's and Disney plus have shown having kids programming is key to getting families to lock into your streaming service. But what is new and potentially interesting because it suggests a strategy shift on. Apple's part is the further news. That apple has also quietly acquired frugal rocks back catalogue. All Ninety six original episodes of the TV show aired between Nineteen Eighty. Three and nineteen eighty. Seven have been quietly made available to stream on Apple. Tv plus so is apple shifting its original strategy of creating original content into a mix strategy of also licensing existing Ip. If so might that be a tall order because I mean since everyone in their mother is investing in streaming plays right now. Why would anyone be willing to part with valuable? Ip that they could leverage to make their own efforts viable quoting the Great Julia Alexander in the verge as Joseph adhaline reported in vulture this week with big studios like Disney Warner media and NBC UNIVERSAL. Quote looking to keep their best and brightest titles for their own streaming platforms. There simply aren't enough great titles around to justify making a play for a traditional library of licensed content instead it makes more sense for apple to look at acquiring full libraries for shows wants to reboot keeping everything in one place makes for a better consumer experience quote so were apple to end up doing a deal for the rights to the James Bond Franchise something which has been buzzed about. Since at least two thousand seventeen the company would also likely try to get the back library of bond films so it could market itself as the home for all things 007 at Elaine wrote apple like all streaming players. Right now is making licensing bets where they make sense. Apple isn't about to try to use NETFLIX's licensing strategy which helped the general entertainment platform catapult into a behemoth for its own gain as apple figures out which properties make the most sense to either resurrects remake or reboot building out. Full collections is also a smart play. Apple isn't calling this a strategy shift but it is one apple. Tv plus launched without any license content and CEO. Tim Cook reiterated at a shareholders meeting in February that Apple. Tv plus wasn't about hosting older series or films specifically saying that's not what Apple TV pluses about cook. Restated that Apple. Tv plus is about original programming and quote. It doesn't feel right for apple to just go out and take a rerun. Cook said now. The caveat seems to be if that original program is based on an older series or movie. It's likely that collection will wind up on Apple.

Black Explorers

"On the list of history's great explorers too often, the names of black men and women have gone missing. Yet weather, striking out on their own or accompanying others. Black explorers and left their mark on land and sea. In even in space. In Fifteen, twenty eight. And African named Esteban was brought to Florida as a slave by Spanish conquistadors. When their expedition fail. The survivors explored the American southwest on foot for almost a decade. Esteban travel well over fifteen thousand miles. He saw Moore of the continent than almost any other people before. Listen incompetent. About four centuries later. Another African American explore. Would be one of the first Westerners to reach the far end of planet earth. Matthew Henson spent most of his adolescence at sea learning how to be a sailor. He was also quite interested in exploration, and found himself connected to Admiral Perry. Who is interested in finding North Pole? Hinson travels with him and they've made to the North Pole. Hinson had incredible skills and was recognized for those skills far later than Perry was. In the twentieth century black. Pioneers boldly explored even more daunting frontiers. In the nineteen eighties, the space program was very popular with the American people, and it became clear that there were no African Americans in the astronaut corps, so there was a push to recruit African Americans and in Nineteen, ninety-three guy in blue for became the first. African American to go into space. The second was Ronald McNair. Flew as a mission specialist in nineteen eighty-four. McNair even played his saxophone onboard. Sadly He died tragically two years later when the Challenger exploded shortly after takeoff. In Nineteen ninety-two another African American astronaut made history. It'll be making her first trip in space today and she's ready to fly. Mae Jemison spent more than a week orbiting Earth becoming the first African American woman in space. The Astronaut Corps something that Swiss considered quite a leap. These three African Americans were accomplished scientists and engineers they had passed through quite a rigorous set of assessments to become the first of their race to go into a place where your skills your intelligence, your courage and your commitment were all that mattered not erase. Contrary to what most of US learned in school? Not all great explorers were white men. These bowl pioneers were only a few of the African. Americans who overcame unimaginable odds and push forward. The boundaries of what is possible for black people.

"Have to eat so how has the corona virus pandemic affected our food supply chain Henson who you are where you are and what part of the chain you look at let's say you go to a supermarket in west Lafayette Indiana which is not exactly a covert nineteen hot so I think about a week ago I plan to go to the store early in the morning I got up about seven thirty AM I thought I beat the crowds Jayson Lusk is an economist at Purdue University and got to the store and was you know frankly shocked there was basically no meat left and mayor major staple foods bread pasta rice were largely picked over there are still some varieties available but I was frankly very surprised at that now if there's anyone in the world would think would not be surprised it would be huge because this is what you know yeah yeah I think even as a food economist you take our food system for granted I wouldn't say our food system is fragile but we're certainly experiencing a very unusual strain on our food system that we haven't seen in recent years what we've been hearing from members as they're experiencing anywhere from you know eighty to a hundred and fifty percent increases in volume that is Doug Baker with fMRI the food marketing institute foot traffic is up but not as significantly because basket size rock right people are buying more stock FMI is a trade association that represents many links in the food chain retailers wholesalers food manufacturers and more on the retail side were grocery sales are four hundred and sixty billion dollar business in America FMI includes small local stores as well as big chains like Kroger and Walmart over the years that Baker has seen a lot of change I've had a long career in the industry I like to sort of dug myself as a candidate Acker starting in the grocery business as a courtesy clerk at seventeen years old because my dad basically told me to go down to the corner and get a job at the grocery store Baker's wife is an IC you nurse the definition of an essential job but he sees his work as essential to grocers are never better than when the public needs a box we deal with disaster on an annual basis and we understand that we're feeding communities and in many instances that grocery stores and community center the grocery industry is a very tight when it seems really big but we're also really tight so when when we have these types of crisis scenes we also offer mutual aid to each other Baker says the strain on the grocery system the spike in demand has arrived in two phases phase one there's preventative preparedness and that's when we were seeing significant increases in household cleaning products personal care products in personal health products so hand sanitizers and sanitized wipes and toilet paper and vitamins and stuff like that and now face to show its response preparedness now and some examples for you pasta previous week was a hundred and thirty two percent previous year it's up two hundred and twenty nine percent Shoup's hundred seven percent versus previous weekend two or twelve percent versus previous year because the response to the corona virus itself has varied in intensity by location so to have shopping habits some places seem to be getting into phase two and a half with the most frantic shopping starting to subside California we have some members out there that are seeing sales starting to slow down that's because more and more people are now as the industry because it can tree loaded and we anticipate that the customer is they look and see that they've got everything that they need and they start heating those messages to stay home that we will see a sales decline which will allow the supply chain to resell for the moment however in many places there are significant shortages in grocery stores let's take a step back and ask why there are some obvious.

"That staff very sad if you're ever in the mood for a good cry watch the Jim Henson Memorial Big Bird sings. It's not easy being green. Yeah tough stuff. People his children his legacy lives on through In nineteen ninety-three Jane. His wife Foreign founded the Jim Henson legacy to preserve his contributions germ with public and like. I said he donated five hundred puppets to the center puppetry arts and There is also the gym Henson Memorial Mapa Museum and traveling exhibits and his sons and daughters help Renaissance Foundation and some of them are paying themselves in run. The company the company has changed hands. A Lot I have sort of the boring history. When he was still alive he was going to sell it to Disney for one hundred and fifty million because apparently he believed in Disney's commitment to characters so he thought that would be a good place for the muppets to live. Yeah you bought it but he did not get that deal Finished but it turns out one hundred fifty million with chump change because in two thousand and his children sold the entire company including the sesame street characters to a German media company for six hundred eighty million while and then I believe that company fell on hard times and they bought it back in two thousand and three eighty four million net crazy. Wow the Hinson. Children are smart and inbetween all that there are various exchanges of percentages of steaks with other companies and rights of certain characters. A little dull to go over all of that but needless to say they made up pretty well and eventually Disney now does they do own all the muppets studio. They own the muppets. Apparently the Henson Company sold the rights to the sesame street characters sesame street which is right cool. Yes and the Jim. Henson's creature shop still builds the sesame street puppets muppets. Yes if they sold the rights of the muppets and bear in the Big Blue House characters. Which I'm not familiar with that one. Nor am I but Disney wanted to? I guess that's sort of the player to be named later. That's included in the in the baseball trade. An proud of the Hinson kids. Yeah a great and I hope we get tweeted about this one from them. They seem seem pretty. Great Brian in Cheryl and the gang seem like they're doing right by the DAD and there's other siblings two and I think they're all involved. Yeah super involved and sadly Jane passed away. I think in two thousand thirteen. Yeah at the age of seventy eight. I would have loved to have seen what kind of work he did later in his life. Oh yeah the fact that he died in one thousand nine hundred still had like apple. Tv shows going. I mean fifty years old. He's left him. If you want to know more about Jim Henson goes into our muppets episode. And while you're looking that up you can also search Jim Hansen on the search BAR HOUSE DOT com. Bring up this great article and since I said search bar. It's time for a listener mail. This is I'M GONNA call this soft more smart. Sophomore guys may name is Matt and I'm a Sophomore Sophomore Manure Fan in the show and I listened while I do everything just wanted to say the dark ages were only dark in Europe. The life expectancy in the dark ages is actually the longer than before but mostly because there were smaller wars but things were certainly brighter and the Islamic world. In fact people in the Middle East were really enlightened during this time within about one hundred years they conquered a lot of new land including Spain also. The Arabic language grew to be the language philosophy medicine and poetry and Baghdad became the World Centre scholarship. They translated almost all of the famous. Greek philosophers work into Arabic Muslim. Muslims developed Algebra to simplify inheritance laws and they made important strides in trigonometry to help people find a way to Mecca architecture. Grew to The Great Mosque in Spain only took roughly a year. While medieval cathedrals took hundreds of years to build so the Dark Ages. Weren't that dark in. The enlightenment came earlier than most think and that is for Matt. Thanks Matt enlightening stuff. My friend yeah are numerals or Arabic. Yeah it's true we should. We should hit on some more Middle Eastern topics. Let's do it in the meantime. If you want to suggest some Middle Eastern topics for us you can tweet them to us at podcast.

"Okay we're back and we're still in the eighties. That's right and you were talking about other TV As we said the man loved television in filmmaking and so he got away from the muppets puppets every now and then Collaborated with Raymond. Scott who was an electronic pioneer actually on shorts called ripples in wheels that go You did that for the Montreal. Expo in sixty seven right and I know we're jumping around in time but we're just trying to paint the full picture here not going necessarily in order and then he also did. This cool thing called the floating face. Which was a sketch on the tonight? Show the Mike Douglas. Show in the sixties Which I did you see any of that a little bit. There's a little weird It was like two eyes and a mouth and there were like these invisible wires and background images and it was it was definitely a little more on that. Surreal tip the Hinson surreal tip. Yeah not kid oriented necessarily but he got to the movies with the muppet movie which is a big hit. It still holds up man. It's still so great. If you WANNA know more about that moving into some of the cool facts from it go again. Listen to the muppet episode. Yeah as a matter of fact pause. This goes into the muppet episode. And then come back to this one. Yeah probably enhance your experience. Agreed or listen to both at the same time But he followed the muppet an one thousand nine hundred two. He made the dark crystal. Yeah which was Puppets and it was based on Some drawings by fantasy artists Brian froude and there were no humans it was all puppets and I don't think it holds up as well but it still looks pretty good. Well Yeah I think it actually is probably better receive now than it was originally. Yeah I think critics appreciated it but it didn't do so well at the box office but now it's become a cult classic for sure. Yeah and one of the reasons why it didn't do that well at the box office because audiences didn't quite know what to make of it they heard Frank Oz co-directed it right Jim Henson puppets and they think they win. Expecting the muppet movie. This is nine hundred. Eighty two and the they got the dark crystal instead with really dark. The lot of the theme is good versus evil. And it's the evil in it is really really evil and the stuff that happens to some of the puppets is including really cute. Puppets yeah is really horrifying and I read this awesome quote by frank and basically he says like Jim thought it was okay to scare kids. As matter of fact he thought it wasn't healthy for kids to never be scared. He purposely was trying to scare kids. And he he. He wanted to take the tradition back to Grimm fairy tales which are very very dark affects point. That's what he was going forward the dark crystal. Yeah I think it was ahead of. Its time for sure if you look at some of these movies today. I think that dark crystal was a precursor. A lot of those Then he went onto make the movie the labyrinth with Bowie Right. Yeah David Bowie and very cruise young Jennifer Connelly now. That was legend okay. Good movie But this was written by Terry Jones of Monty Python fame and then written a bunch by a bunch of other people including executive producer. George Lucas Labyrinth was okay. Not Bad again. Not a huge hit For Hinson though as far as movies go but he was still out there. Exploring these cool fantastical worlds fantasy worlds and he still had a lot of credit even in the late eighties. If you think about his heyday was the late seventies early eighties with the muppet. Show the muppet movie s and then after that. It was like yeah. I'll try this with Jim. Henson I'll try this with Jim Henson. And even even still he had like a he was on a pretty great streak and at the end of the ADC had to TV shows on the Jim. Henson hour and storytelling storyteller. Yeah the Jim Henson Hour. He's always pushing the boundaries. A storyteller looking back now are. I'm sorry Jim Hinson. Our looking back was really different from what you were getting time because it was. It was all over the map. Certain shows that were like you know. Four or five sketches in one and then. Three of the episodes were full on our little mini movies. Really from yeah from beginning Louis. Yeah that's a good point actually. One of the little mini movies was called dog city which was great. It was narrated by Ralph and it was. I remember watching this. It was like a a film nor gangster thing you puppet dogs. Yeah and the main character issue was The Guy who did elmo Kevin Clash did The character of ACU and that was fantastic. I think dogs city went on to be a TV show. And its own right to okay for a little while but it was really good. I mean it's total like gangster crime film noir. But it's you know Ralph the Dog Right Gang I love. It's really cool the storyteller I hadn't seen before I was. I guess aware of but I don't know why wasn't watching it because it would have been like right there for me. Yeah I would have been twelve in nineteen eighty eight but I watched today and it was really good. It's like human puppet interaction. Yeah which is. It's just seamless like there's one of the things from studying this that I've realized that we take for granted and expect our puppet human interactions to be so seemless that we don't even realize they were looking at puppets and the reason why we expect that is because of Jim Henson and the people he worked within an inspired to work so hard at creating that illusion we had the illusion that these are living breathing. Things he would go. I remember Kermit as guests on talk shows Right Jim. Henson he would go out. I mean he did those appearances as well but kermit the frog would be a guest tonight show Johnny Carson or host or guest tonight. Show Larry King. Yeah and it was all a part of this goal of making these real people. Write a real living things not people. Yeah apparently somebody who is working with the Jim. Henson was the director of the muppet show would be giving Jim Notes on Kermit and Jim would just respond like let Kermit respond. That was pre end. The director said eventually you're sitting that you turned address. Kermit like he just force you and interacting with the public even I during a note session. Yeah and probably without feeling silly or stupid or anything you know probably seem like a totally normal thing to do eventually forced you to do He also pioneered the Hinson Performance Control System and Wanted Academy award for that and that was a remote control system that Helped puppeteers out. So he he was always pushing technical Visual I'm stylistic thematic boundaries. As far as he could and they didn't always work. You know the movies weren't aside from the muppet movie. They weren't the biggest hits the TV show a couple of you know. Neither one of those lasted very long. But I think he was just intent on doing something different. Yeah he and he did and he died. In Ninety of Daf infection organ failure brought on by a staph infection. Did you know that yet? I think pneumonia had something to do with it too. Didn't it not that I saw? I saw organ failure caused by Group. A strep infection. I'm sorry.

"Had one week's installment called the cube which was a guy just stuck in a white room but other people could come in and out of the room but he could not right. Yes okay and he starts to go kind of crazy and it has the look and feel of a color. Tv Ad like all lots of over acting in like Carol Burnett s characters and stuff like that but yeah the the sentiment behind it and like the everything behind is really neat. It really gives you a good An eye opening example of like what Jim Henson was capable of but also like what he was into. Because you know when you think of him you think of muppets and Sesame Street in particular sure and these are weird. Abstract art films. Not Unlike. You know you've watched like a Jim Morrison art film from film school and it's kind of the same style you know that was what was going on back then and he actually got nominated for an academy award for timepiece. Jim Henson had Jim Morrison beat by a mile as far as experimental films went. Yeah I'll agree with you there so like I said. He wasn't quite convinced it puppetry was his future because he was a filmmaker in he was like puppets or still. Can Kid stuff right but Post College? He did the old tour of Europe and in Europe. Puppeteers a whole different business. It was a lot more serious in a lot more. I guess it was treated as art. Yeah exactly and he said you know what I am going to give this. A shot came back to the. Us married Jane and even though he and Jane separated they never divorced Oh really I thought they did now. They never fulfilled the divorce. They stayed separated. Okay and Then he started making TV commercials and formed his own company in nineteen sixty three with. I don't know if he formed it with. Frank is but he hired. Frank is Jerry Joel Who ended up being obviously legendary puppeteers and lifelong collaborators of his. Yeah Yeah but he started out making a basically a puppet based commercial AD agency in New York in one thousand nine hundred sixty three. Yeah and they weren't making funny commercials back then. So he was really pretty revolutionary right and they did pretty well for themselves in one of the smartest moves he made early on was all of his contract said that he retained the rights to any of the creations. He made for these companies. Yeah so he was creating. Ah some of the things that would later become famous. Muppet's like the cookie monster was originally made for a chip maker and it was this puppet that couldn't get enough of these chips. Yeah he was the wheel stealer and he's cheese wheels. Yeah okay that's what it was. And he ended up being the cookie monster and the reason he ended up being the cookie. Monster's because Jim Henson retain the right so that that was. He's very savvy business guy. Yeah and he was. He was using somebody else's dime these these advertisers like budgets to kind of hash out and form and make his muppets. Yeah Roth. The dog started out on Purina commercials and was later sidekick on the Jimmy Dean show in nineteen sixty three. I remember that from the muppets episode. Golf was the first big muppet is. He's such like a bit character now. Yeah that it's just mind boggling. To think he was the one that started it all in before kermit big bird it was. Ralph Kinda stole the show I think. Yeah we'll talk a little more about kermit and more. He came from right after this tax season can be a real pain in my right but it's all worth it when you open the mailbox and see that sweet sweet envelope.

Artists are always stopping by to hang out and share their lives and music too so wake up with a bunch of my friends. I Ninety eight point seven. W M Z Q in Washington DC or wherever the rotates you on the iheartradio APP. All right so it's one sixty nine and a very very big thing happens to Jim Henson. He was invited to be on the pilot of a show created by the children's television workshop. Called Sesame Street and he did not create it. People think he did but he did make his mark by creating Most of the iconic characters. And if you're a fan of the old sesame street's back then all not all but many of those little short films the little claymation ones or the live actions. He directed those as well. Yeah which is pretty cool. I never knew that. I think I knew that did you. Yeah he's the are recipe. Yeah he was there. Russ Vic Vic is ours tried so chuck the whole thing. That changed everything for him with Sesame Street. Yeah he's not a. He's he wasn't creative. Sesame street is hired him on and actually won them over because remember one of the things that Jim Henson always struggled with his whole career was he wanted to explore places that puppets had never really gone to write in themes that they hadn't gone through at least not in the modern age but he was fighting against them. Not being taken seriously yes. It wasn't like he was anti puppet by any means he was or anti kids Because one of the big reasons he signed on with children's television workshop was their goal to educate kids. Right meant a lot to him. But like you said I think to merge those worlds successfully was a big part of his goal right and struggle for a little while Russ Vic by the way made the little interstitial things for the stuff you should know television. Yeah animation which is why referencing. Yeah so the Children's television workshop which is now called the sesame workshop from what I understand. They want him over big time he makes all of these characters from like big bird and Kermit came before sesame street and he started out. I think we talked about this in the episode to he started out looking really weird lizard not cool at all like really. Kinda freaky which is something that I now that I know a little more about Jim Henson. I think maybe he might have even been going for right. But one of the things that sesame street allowed him to do was to really kind of explore something that he'd long been obsessed with which was television and where it converged with puppets which was all new territory and Jim Henson. Was that the bleeding of it. Tell you because if you think about it when you go to a puppet show live you know you're you're looking at what's essentially a mechanism for hiding the human and there's just a little area that the public can move around in will tiny thick stage? Yeah so Jim. Henson's stepped back and said okay. The television is that little tiny area that the public can stay can move around in but it also opens up the whole world for puppet because you're using camera angles and there's editing and it's not in person. Yeah just frame out the people so and again. We talked about this in the muppet episode. He created something called platforming up. Yeah to where the puppeteers no longer had to crouch down in to to maneuver the puppets. Yeah because he's a tall guy. Yeah Tall and Lanky man. He was skinny. Oh those running shots and timepiece exactly he was in it they were hysteric and he weighs about seventy pounds stig lanky legs so yeah. The performance could stand up which was a huge weight off. Yeah but at the same time because you're working with cameras and stuff like that. And they have the whole universe of move around in and Jim. Henson wanted him to move around as much as possible. It also put them in some weird positions. Yes well some people might think it's like Kinda ruining the thing but I think it's really neat if you just look on Google images. Muppets muppet show behind the scenes pictures. And it'll show the the stage sets you know like six feet off the ground and all the people standing beneath. I think it's awesome to look at but some people don't like you know they want to keep that illusion alive right so depending on what kind of person you are either. Seek that out or don't and we gave that warning in the muppets episode. Did we. Yeah I think the really cool pictures. I agree because a lot of times they're looking at. They're looking at video monitors standing. There contorted using both hands. Right like the way puppeteers worked together to me is just a miracle. Because they're acting as the puppets but they're moving still moving among one another as humans right underneath which can be really complicated. We in fact we know some really really talented puppeteers here in Atlanta. Gather the Center for puppetry. Arts is yeah. I think the nation's largest puppet puppeteer organization and that is where we had our TV show debut party premier party like it was a really cool experience imitator and the Ganger right there on display. I think the Hinson and kermit cut the ribbon for the grand opening Back when it opened and Ended up donating like five hundred puppets and muppets right to the Center for puppetry arts. If you ever visit Atlanta people always email us and say what should we do highly recommend going and checking out the center.

Thanks so much for joining us today. Thanks to the. It's a really great to hear. So I say something we actually. We're talking about narrow recap episode. Thank you you're the reason this podcast asked exists. No you are here. Short story Every now and then your y'all range at dinner at ams annual by various writers media folks and At that meeting with Seattle I. It'd been on my mind that I want us to have a podcast but I didn't know who to talk to. It came to that meeting you. You you graciously invited me to that dinner and I sat down next to Jeff and it was. That was the person I needed to talk about it so that excellent. Thank you thank you and I. That's the value conferences. You know what I mean. You can do conferences virtually now you could simply have something beamed out but it's still never quite the same as being together in person. So there's definitely a place for for it all number conferences for you. Oh Gosh I remember the seventy fifth anniversary meeting okay. So at least that far back. So that's twenty five years ago. Yeah Yeah what's What are some differences D thing? Now that you see in the Non France in our organization as a whole well where do I start and there's nobody likes cooter Ma you know I'd say the competition where colorful more lively Egli You know what we're doing with the the banquet tonight you know. It's going to be much more open I kind of food. Station approach and some audiovisual things will give people equal chance to mingle and meanwhile the awards which were part of the bank would always kind of a challenge. Because you're sitting there hoping to talk to your peers and you're interested in the awards that it took a long time and now those are off on Sunday when people getting in and a really colorful presentation for those independent from the banquets so I think that's when really cool innovation this year Obviously having the talks sub able to be reviewed online later on as a pin tastic thing. I've often go. You Bet gone back and looked at videos after the conferences. There's so many that you can't get too I think the presence of students is a big Wonderful Development. I think the student conference when I first I started you know how many meetings and the student conference for started maybe fifteen hundred students. Now it's Typically I think five or six hundred injured so one thing that's becoming bigger. Huge topic is climate At MS I. I should clean five years ago. It was apart but maybe not as big of apart I was wondering if that is also reflected in the things that you cover in right about is good yup weather angle. I'm in your is climate becoming a bigger part for that or is it always sort of been a big part of. We'll certainly for the weather underground blog. Category Six It's always been weather and climate boats and some ocean and water sprinkled in as well I think of it. Really as they're they're they're joined at the hip really weather and climate the climate the immigrant. Or whether are you know whether what you dress for given day climate is stuff you having your closet. You know that you draw from so they're not the same thing that they're intimately related. And and a more and more I think of people have to be conversant in both the beginning to be a communicator and whether you should know some climate and vice versa. So you were your end car for a while writing quite awhile. Yes Twenty five years. Gotcha and guess. What with grabbed you to to writing about weather and climate and not because it is a very different thing to write about it than to to practice it or or to be an operations? Oh sorority broadcasts could be a broadcaster gaster. Yeah they are distinctly different. Well I got into the interested in weather when I was seven years old and growing up in Oklahoma City and was fascinated by tornadoes. EIDOS and early on. I thought well I'm going to be. TV weather caster. And that's just what you do and then in high school I got interested in journalism Print journalism you know about writing writing essentially and so that really put me on and by the time I got to college. I really wasn't sure which routes ago so ended up getting master's training and both Meteorology A. and journalism and moved to Boulder Colorado did a little work at their local newspaper and then the opportunity to join the writing group at in-car came up and That turned out to be really good spot for me because in car as we used to say covers everything from the bottom of the ocean to You know the Solar System so oh I learned a tremendous amount about the whole spectrum of weather and climate in my many years Writing it in car actually producing outdoor weather trail Ah Helping create exhibits a wide range of stuff there as well Mesa lab so great sheriff for those listening if you're out in boulder check out the Mason lab. There's a lot of cool information in visuals due to its architectural masterpieces. Well the first non-urban building I m Pei fabulous abuse. US architect and you can do. You can go inside the building. I believe every day except Christmas exhibits for all so nice. It was their research that you found particularly interesting to write about. Or maybe they just just fascinated you while your car o i. I couldn't even begin to you to summarize I mean he's probably rent thousands of research papers and done hundreds of interviews scientists not only scientists that were Adam car but In cars hub and people come from all over the world. in-car end you card. Which is the parent organization? I always say university corporation. I worked answered. You know there are some programs like comet which trains meteorologist in other folks and Unit data which coordinates donates Data access at university and there are programs that are in addition to inquirer managed by UCAR. So you know there's people coming from all over the place place and in any given week to the lobby and there's folks from across the world I mean I I got to meet Then Ki Moon the UN secretary general enroll at that time And that was a real thrill Margaret Thatcher came. When she was a prime minister of Britain she came to the Mesa lab actually sharpshooters on the roof of the building? I've ever seen that. You know that puts you in a unique position You know so much about about you. Know everything that's going on research wise then car. You're probably one of the few people in that position that that did that. Almost like SORTA WE'RE GONNA story in Position in a way I interested in history from the GECKO. You know when I you're a started in Carlisle also finished a book about the history of TV weather and that was called television weather casting a history and was published by fairly small press Academic Press Mcfarland Company then picked up and re transformed it and I updated aided and that's now whether on the air history broadcast meteorology so I've always been interested in history the discipline and especially broadcasting and communication And we're closely with I in wraps in the long time archivist and a couple of her successors so And I was on History Committee at Ams as well so yeah that's near and dear tired of my heart right some more in the realm of history at some point and so now you're at wonder ground. I assume that that writing ending position. How long have you been there five years? Now I'm actually Also part of the weather dot com team so we produce the website. That's branded for the weather. Channel and includes both weather and climate cover shah articles as well as videos so I help with some writing and some editing and urology quality control so Yeah Yeah it's a nice mix of duties there as well.

"Thank you everyone for singing along. Please just shout out. That's my favorite song. If that's your favorite song that's me too. I could not be more delighted to have with us on the stage and next to me right now. Rubbing elbows with Cheryl Henson. She is the daughter of Jim. Henson I think if you have some fans Cheryl Henson has a long career in puppetry and puppet mastery and theater and we could say a lot about you. Please come Mike. Tell us more about yourself. Hi I'm Cheryl Henson and I'm the second oldest of John Henson's five children. Wow so you worked worked with your dad from the time you were a little kid. Is that right. Well I really started. Building puppets one is fifteen so when I was in high school is the first time that I W I had the opportunity to build puppets in the muppet workshop. In London for the muppet show and that was really exciting but when is really little we actually did. As some puppet shows in the schools. My Dad was always getting invited to come to our schools and put something on and they did rope us into it but I don't think I really took it seriously sleep until I was in high school. Please come your Mike. How many muppets where people an? How many muppets were animals? That's a really interesting question. Because there's a whole third category category of creatures and monsters and things that you've never seen any place then right there as muppets. And so I'd I'd say there are a whole bunch of all all three of those categories. What was your favorite muppet? Oh Gosh I'd say that since my father passed away that that kermit what is my favorite muppet because the tickly might when my father performed kermit the early clips his own kermit because because he is my father and all of my fathers characters have some aspect of his own personality in them. That's really puppetry. Works best when when you're able to draw from inside of yourself to pull out a character so all the characters he did have some aspect of him but the one that's closest assist. His personality is kermit and he's the one who's kind considerate trying to pull a whole bunch of crazies altogether. But then he'll go he'll get really upset and he'll like he's he has very multifaceted character. I think kermit's so kermit's my favorite but when I was a kid actually my favorite the kid was grover. I thought that Franks's grover was just brilliant. I loved his sense of humor. So I still love grover and love kermit and then I went through a robin the frog phase where I really love L.. Small Frog of Robin so halfway down the stairs. That's Robin Robin. And there was a show all around Robin called the Frog Prince. Where Robyn was the frog prince who wanted to get kissed and I loved that show? Nope what puppets did you make in the muppet show. Oh very good question. The very first puppets that I made in the muppet show were for the first season. In Nineteen in seventy six and my sister and I were invited to make fruits and vegetables fruit and vegetable stand. And I made a grapefruit a of S- paradise this a artichoke and melon and my sister made it tomato and they were in the fruit and vegetable stand and the only thing. We didn't make re bananas. Because they're seeing coming is yes. We have no bananas does my first one and that same season. We did lobsters for this chef to cook. I love the lobster and once I made were the lobster bandidos that had little cap guns and then there's and so mine were there's lobsters that came and saved saved the lady lobster habit. What's your favorite part of creating a muppet? Well you don't have to say that. Creating a muppet is very collaborative of that that they're fantastic. Puppet builders puppy designers and then the performance themselves bring a lot to the character with the voice but also also the script writers who are writing the script and coming up with how those characters are going to be interacting. So I'd say that almost all the muppet characters are collaboration between in a really interesting group of tightly-knit talented people did you make miss piggy. I did not actually. The woman who made Miss Piggy was here just the other day. I'm named Bonnie Erickson. And she set up the puppets here in this exhibition so she built the original miss piggy. So I heard that you helped with your father was making the mother. Did you ever voice any of them but characters I did not I was terrified to use my own voice so I did background characters and then I made more of a career career as a puppet builder but my brother. Brian O.'s very good puppeteer and he did lots of voices. Did you ever were you ever the puppeteer behind the the puppets like controlling them. I when I I did background puppets but I tell you my expertise is not as a puppeteer. It's much more supporting the puppeteers. So for all those out in radio land who really wanted to be puppeteers when they grow up what is the education. And what do you have to do to become puppeteer. That's a really interesting question. Well I want to build your own puppets and star puppeteer because a lot of it comes from inside yourself and so just go ahead and start building stuff and start puppet tearing a mirror or a video camera or even telephone of phone or an IPAD is a great way to get started. There are university programs for the University of Connecticut at stores has particularly good program with a number of other programs around the country as well On. There's also really good. Organization called the puppeteers of America and the audience that puppeteers of America has festivals every summer. And they also have a really great way of interconnecting puppeteers. And if you really WanNa do you WanNa practice at home and then you want to apprentice in work for puppeteer. That's the best way to do it. How is your life different as a kid having Jim Henson as your dad I would say that basically clearly our lives were pretty regular kid lives particularly when you have five kids in the family like home. Life is keeps you honest but but I would say that both my parents were artists and creators and that they really encouraged us to learn a lot of skills for making things and so we. You're always making things at home all different kinds of crafts weather. It's a fabric arts or painting. COPPERY AMEL camel woodworking. It's really important to to really get in there and just make stuff. Whatever that thing is and I think that's something that both of my parents really encouraged? Do you think there was. Maybe a singular quote or something. Your Dad would say that he wished all kids new or maybe that would be sort of emblematic of of how he was as a person. was there something that he used to say to you growing up that made you feel like 'cause he sure made me feel like I. I could do anything that is so nice. I don't actually POPs to mind. Afraid was funny. Dad Did he make you guys is laugh a lot. 'cause he sure made us laugh a lot because I know sometimes funny people can be really funny on stage and they are not so funny off stage but I bet your dad had had a pretty good sense of humor. Yes he did. He had a good sense of humor. He also is pretty quiet though and I think he he was pretty shy. person in real life life and that a lot of his crazy humor came out through the puppets and I think that for people who are unnaturally shy puppetry but but they have a really great sense of humor. Inside that puppetry is a fantastic outlived Cheryl Henson the daughter of Jim.

"Remains one of the favorite vivere kid movies of all time and does if there wasn't enough happening in his life. Jim Henson's started working on other projects. A friend of his named George. Lucas focus hired him to create a character. We all know and love from the Empire strikes back the Jedi master. Yoda metrics so do you Frank Oz did Yoda's voice and Iota became the most popular character during the Star Wars Franchise. Jim and frank wrote and produced the dark crystal in nineteen eighty two. And then the muppets take Manhattan and in nineteen eighty six. The studio had a flop but it later became a cult. Classic starring David Bowie the movie the Labyrinth is Dirk fantasy written and directed by Henson that features boase music as well among the power. You do Jim. Henson's work encompassed his whole life. His five children worked for his company from the time they were small. Jim Henson's life was cut short at fifty three years old in nineteen ninety but his legacy lives on And.

"But, but when I got there, it was kind of you know, in in an odd state, but the writers on that Douglas Adams of hitchhikers guide Chris surf of Sesame Street fame and many many songs and and son of Bana surf and. Norm styles the head writer of Sesame Street, so extrordinary gathering of writers and a project that was falling apart. So we kind of set around and talked a lot. So I got to spend a lot of time with Douglas Adams, which was an amazing thing because there was a huge huge fan. But when that project fell apart. I looked for a way to stay at the Muppets because it was cool because it was the Muppets. And so I worked in I did a ton of different things there. I did I worked in the licensing department a lot which was which is toys, and that's really kind of where he started writing stuff there. Because if you think about a, you know, a Kermit the frog plush doll it's in a box the box has copy on the box in the copy was muddy. So I would I began writing all that stuff. And then I read it. Happy. I wrote I wrote, you know, just sort of the the muppet show was no longer in production. So there there wasn't a writing staff to go to for things. And so I wound up they were just all these odds and ends that needed to be written. And then I started doing them and. It was it's a the Muppets was a very small place. So the offices were this astonishing townhouse on east sixty ninth street in New York, which was if you if you close your eyes and imagine that Kermit the frog lived in an elegant townhouse in New York, the image. You have in your head is exactly correct. You've got it. And so that's where I went to work every day. And and I was there and then in nineteen eighty nine Jim decided that he wanted to be a bigger part of film, and television and Henson's and hence Jim Henson who by the way, I sure most people know this if they've seen clips Jim kermit's voices, just Jim's voice pitched up a little bit. So when Jim talk to you, you know. No. You know, what I was looking over the thing you wrote. And it was like, you know, oh, that's criminal. But so so Jim wanted to he wanted more involved in film and television, and he also he had struck a deal with Disney, and it was the deal. So the deal that he struck in the late eighties. Wound up falling apart after his death. And then there's the ultimate did acquire them up a choke characters. But so an eighty nine we all moved to Los Angeles. There were there were about a dozen of us from the Henson organization, we moved out here. And then then Jim died in nineteen ninety. And so I, and I stayed I stayed with them up. It's about another year after that. And during that time. You during that time. You wrote the Disney theme park attractions. We did. So the the muppet three D movie. I wish I think still plays in Florida finally closed in California. I love that. That was that was I loved that so much that's an excellent last thing. Jim Jim directed that. And his death happens during the course of that project. If if I recall, I might have the time, but I believe he never saw up and. But that was that was incredibly fun to work on and we would fly out to Los Angeles. And we would meet with the Walt Disney Imagineering who who build the they're the designers of the theme park. There was a wonderful one of my favorite memories of Jim as we would sit in these meetings. So if you if you saw this this attraction, so it's a three D movie. But there are also a lot of IMF theater effects. Oh, yeah. And there there was I was actually pretty proud there..
