"And author, I'm sorry, I'm sorry. New York Times bestselling author of the book blood in the garden Chris Heron Chris, how's it going? I'm good, buddy, how are you? I'm good, you know? It's like a frigid 49° in Los Angeles. To me, that's cold now. I mean, and I'll honestly, that's fair. That's cold for where y'all are at. It's still early in the day there, so I would hope and trust it. Y'all have less overcast weather than we do in Chicago. So maybe we'll get a little bit warmer there. I'm looking out my window and my girlfriend is going to come into town later tonight. And she sent me like a depressed face, a depressed emoji because she was like, really, the weekend I come out there, you guys have this. And it essentially had like snow flurries in the forecast. And I looked at her and I kind of responded back, like, you're not allowed to be mad at that. Like, first of all, the low this weekend is 36, which means they theoretically can't snow if it doesn't get colder than that. That's not freezing, so if sleep is the worst thing we have this weekend, like it is getting to be mid December now, you know? So it's not. It's not the worst thing in the world. He tried to defend sleep. That was your, I guess that is ultimately what I was doing, but I mean, hey, at this point, we've had some snow here in Chicago. It hasn't been. We haven't had like real real snow where three days later it's still on the ground because of how heavy it was, but, you know, I feel like at this point when you get to December, you can't really be surprised by anything you see in Chicago. But just to your original point, 49 and Los Angeles at any time of day, any time of year is reason to be able to complain and be able to shocking.

"Hi there, I'm in Lexington, a beautiful place, even with rain. It's raining right now. Here about the grass is, I don't know. The grass doesn't look blue to me. Brent does the grass look blue? Why do they call it bluegrass? Maybe this guy driving this truck can tell us why they call it bluegrass. So they call it bluegrass because at certain times of the year had a certain angle of the grass will look blue. I've seen it for myself. And it must be the iced tea, they're drinking a spiked with something. So I'm guessing. Anyway, that was Greg Peterson. Our big ass fan. He is, of course. Our biggest fan in Lexington, probably the only one in like, by the way, if you're listening to this and you live in the Lexington, Kentucky area, and you notice that I'm going to be on a trip with a layover in Lexington, reach out. And we'll do a meet up somewhere. We just did one here, Greg contacted me and said, hey, I'll see you're going to be in Lexington. And I'm flying with Brent Heron. And first officer Brent and I are a thing, as you know, is always to try to find great barbecue wherever we're laying over, so I said to Greg, if you have any good barbecue places here in Lexington, and he said, well, yeah, there are a couple. And so we ended up driving up about 7 miles to the north to a place called red state, barbecue, and man, it was excellent. I had the double smoked brisket and some pulled pork, and let's see, Greg, what did you have? I had the pulled pork and the regular brisket. Okay, and then Brett, what did you have? Of course, you always have pulled pork. So what did you have? I had brisket. Yeah, he really threw me off there. But he had a standard size of baked beans and potato salad. And I don't know what do you think, Brent? What would your rating be? Well, it's up there pretty high. Especially since we really had any in your while, so I don't know. It probably in the 8 and a half 9 range anyway. I would say for sure. Yeah, it was really good. Some of the better barbecue that Brett and I have eaten together. Anyway, as I always say, it's more than just eating great food. It's also getting together with people that have similar interests. And of course, ours is sewing. No, wait, that's not right. We ours is aviation. So I talked a little bit about aviation. Not a lot. We've mostly just got caught up with our families and what's going on with our own personal lives, but oh, hey, now we're driving, as I mentioned before, and we're pulling into this area. It doesn't look like a hotel, Greg. It looks familiar to me, though. These warehouses back here on this. Land plot. Kind of looks to me like we're heading over to the world headquarters for the big ass fan company. I'm recognized that yellow paint. And I'm sure that here in a moment, I see the statues, that's one of Nick's favorite pictures of me. Sitting on one of those fannies that you have out there, those statues of the donkey, and excuse me, the ass. And of course, it's not a very flattering photo of me at all. And that's why Nick likes to flash it up there every time we talk about the big ass fan company. Anyway, so here we are. We're pulling up in front of the big ass band company. And so we're going to get a 5, the nickel tour, he said. So I'm going to go ahead and end.

"Forget hearing Curtis may feel for the first time the power of Curtis Mayfield into the power of his music. The power of those records and just the way his voice is so effortless, you know, it just flows out in this effortless, wonderful way, you know, that was what really turned me onto the falsetto and a major way. Was that something you knew since your teens or that something you came across? On the curse, may feel crept in somewhere in my 20s. I didn't know him that well growing up. But yeah, Curtis Mayfield in prints, you know? I feel like they, for me, like, were the ones that inspired that so much. I mean, the things I've read about you, I can just when you start talking about your influences and stuff, there's always a lot of shared things and I mean obviously everybody loves cardis Mayfield. That's not so unusual, but Gil Scott Heron is someone that I heard you talk a lot about. I mean, and Gil Scott Heron is so interesting because his voice is so different than Curtis's, right? That's one of the things I love most about music and falling in love with music is like then you realize like shit, I don't have to be bound to any rules. You know, there are no rules and not that everything you do is always gonna work or whatever. But why not try, you know? So like getting into like gill Scott hearing it and we've gotten to play several times with Brian Jackson, who made all those records was Gil Scott here. You know, I saw he came up and you guys did the bottle, right? Yeah. Yeah, the garden. Yeah, just getting to talk to Brian and feel his energy and just like the magic of those records. I mean, it's just like, if you're a person that's blessed enough in this lifetime to be given the gift of music. What a gift, you know, and what a limitless gift. You know, it's like you can search and explore and be inspired and try different things. And it's like, you know, listen to gills got here and I was like, I'm gonna, you know, I'm gonna trash singing in some lower tones or whatever. Yeah. Or listening to fucking Nirvana or whatever. And as a kid, I'm gonna scream my face off everybody. You know, just these real. These realizations that you have are listening to Kermit and you know, I want to gosh, I want to do a Tinder ballad, you know? And hopefully you take those inspirations and make them your own. You know, hopefully, it's an inspiration, not an imitation, but you know, it's like, it's so cool that we're all constantly filtering each other. You know, it's like it's wild. Absolutely. I don't think that you could possibly take Kermit the frog Kurt Cobain and gill Scott Heron and not somehow make that your own..

"Learn to be more magnanimous All of these pro social things that we say we value in your previous book high price. You talk about rap and dj -ing chapter five. There's a nice picture of Dj from nineteen eighty. Three so Let me ask who in. Your view is the toughest question of the interview. is the greatest hip hop artist of all time. Maybe give some candidates. Oh wow who is the greatest part is. I don't know if i'm qualified to that day because you you know They have to go back to heal sky heroin. You know like people. Think of him as one of the fathers of hip hop That's my all time faber. You know people like chuck d from public enemy. Some of the things that they were doing. I was really digging but even though i was digging like public enemy but even they got it wrong on drugs even gil. Scott heron got it wrong on drugs But they were doing so much of the good stuff. It helped me to develop as as a person and so I think Like my son is a hip hop is now. I think those those folks who are in the game now might be. They are a lot more qualified to talk about. Who's great hip hop art is. I'm not qualified the evolution. I mean have you tracked the evolution from sort of the nineties with wutang and to park and biggie and into What we have today so there's just been a crazy amount of progress. It's almost difficult to track. Yeah i mean. I really love what they're doing. I like what the except the part where they get over. Forty eight become fucking cops on tv. I mean other than that i dig. What was that about. I don't understand that you know. But that's what they do again. Those disorder. Gloria glorification of cops That's dangerous for society and those cats. Who do that kind of thing. you know. i have a problem with that. Is it all sort of to push back a little bit. Because i come from the soviet union where there's a huge amount of corruption in. What i see. What's going on with cops in this country. There's a lot of proper criticism you can apply but like relative to other y- places this well in so many ways. This country's incredible Is your criticism towards cops or towards would cops are asked to do. Yeah towards cops are asked to do. Cops provide the shield for politician and those empower Absolutely because i was in the military. I spent four years in the military. And i did what i was told to do and i was ignorant and thought i was doing the right thing and do what i was told to do. And so just like these guys are doing what they're told to do But no i. My real beef is with the power structure to folks who are telling them what to do. and also those does the folks who go play cops on on television That imagery that sort of glorifying cops. That's a problem in a democracy. It all all size of the glorification of Drug war is a problem. Yup fucking just lingering on a little longer in terms of the effects of drugs on the positive mind expanding components of it What have Mine altering drugs teach you about the human mind so from a new neuroscience not even like a biochemical but just like the human mind is amazing. Right the places it can go have like. Are there some insights. You've learned from studying drugs about the mind. Yeah star from a neurochemical perspective. First and then we'll go larger just from a neuro chemical perspective..

It's like, and then he also makes the connection to chemicals and drugs and yeah, I mean, I definitely encourage people who are interested to buy this book because he says a lot of really important stuff. But yeah, man, I mean, it's connecting to the intuition that really brought me here, you know, to bring back the idea of the archetype. And I think that when you search from your heart, you know, you'll find the truth and the truth is similar for everybody. There's different shades of it, but I think when it comes to the Gaia matrix and things that we all are collectively a part of, there's a collective truth that we can all tap into when you're honest and connected to your heart. And way before, like you said, I wasn't sitting in some Starbucks plot in it, say, in a while. If I meet Sam triple, then I'll meet Michael one, and then I'll meet it. It didn't work like that. But what did happen was I would go to these natural places where it was very quiet and with the information I had learned from different podcasts I was listening to. I would speak my truth into the air. Out into the world. I stood by the Susquehanna river. And I said it prayer. It wasn't it had nothing to do with you in an offense, Mike, but it was just like, you know, I learned from you the significance of the river went there and said a prayer, you know? Not just for myself and my own good fortune. But for everyone else, because I kind of understood that this place was connected to the rest of the world and that really significant way and now here I am connected to all these awesome folks who listen to our podcasts..

"She recommended that same book that I had been recommended from you and was in the mail when she recommended it. So I'm like, oh, wow, okay, cool. So there's a little more confirmation there. The next day, Tara and I decided to go to a used bookstore. And it's not just any ordinary use bookstore. It's kind of a bookstore that remained hidden from me for a while because and this is going to sound dumb. But it didn't have a Google maps location, the first few times I would look it up. Google Maps would take you to the wrong side of the street. It's a book barn, and it's in a very rural area. So if you're driving down the street and you don't know which driveway to go down, you're never going to find this book barn. It's covered by trees and whatnot. I guess things have changed since now they have kind of a sign off the road and assign pointing us. It's much easier to find now. So we go to this bookstore. And I find a bunch of great books. The first one that caught my eye was this massive hundred or sorry, thousand page book, nearly thousand pages, and it's called the Centennial history of Susquehanna county, Pennsylvania. So I'm like, oh, look at that. Susquehanna, that's not a word you see often, especially in the title of a book. I grabbed this book off the shelf, and I really, I went all out considering it was my birthday weekend and I got myself a $100 worth of books. I got this Susquehanna book. I got the history of ancient Woodbury Connecticut, a town, one of the oldest towns in Connecticut that also aligns with the ham and asset line. But more importantly, for right now, and I also got a book about tartaria, which I'll mention before we end this conversation remind me to bring that up..

"And I think I've shared with you about this experience that I've had in millersville on the campus of millersville university with this owl. And there were three or four sightings of the owl and then all of a sudden never could find it again the Alice is more or less disappeared. But we continue to walk in the same sort of path and we're aware, you know, that's to me, I think that's some of those are the realest interactions which you can have is with the natural world because it's working on a completely different system than like our human false reality world so when you have interactions like your working at a different level. So that being said, like, two weeks ago, we're out taking like an after dinner walk walking through campus. And there is this one pond in the center of camp. It's not a particularly big pond. But it is marked by these two swans. We always walk by. We look at swans with swamps with them. Seen on, I don't know, a hundred times. And sure enough two weeks ago when we are walking approaching the pond right around dots, there is a blue Heron in the pond. And this is like a highly traveled toward a pond. It's not like it's hidden like there are people all around. And there's this blue Heron and the blue Heron is not gonna stand near people while blue Heron is that's not normal behavior. But it led us we were probably there for like ten minutes and ten feet away from it. It was just on the pond, not concerned at all about any sort of human being. And though we never saw that hair and again since those two weeks, there was this continuity or at least it's the way I'm approaching it of first this owl, which is relatively rare bird or at least rare in terms of seeing if people are also hard to find. But then that disappeared and then in the exact same area, like no more than like a hundred, a hundred feet away, there was this very uncommon interaction with the blue Heron up close up close and personal for me. So when you share the story, when you share the story about what you have experienced..
"heron" Discussed on My Family Thinks I'm Crazy
"Hair and experience as maybe this is a marker. You know, you said you were uncovering the Connecticut mystery, even say that quotation marks because I don't know how big or how deep that goes. But you guys, whether individually or together, both, you know, there's something this could be a marker for what is going to unfold for you. I had no idea at the time that I had saved those two crows ravens that all that I would discover shortly thereafter. So in looking towards the future in the trajectory, which you're on, I would hold in expectation of something along the lines of a discovery of going of a deeper deeper awareness and appreciation of the part of the world which you're currently calling home. There's that. And then there's one last thing, and then I'll stop talking. And I only hear what you got to say. And it has to do specifically with blue herons. And so I know this blue herons. It's a striking bird and has a unique unique form. So there are easy to identify and they are in whatever you see at least for me. I just take pause and notice. And that's just how I've always been. But this I don't know, probably since the summer I've had two unique experiences with blue herons on my own. The first one, I was me, Jenny and the girls we were down in kind of like in a valley with a creek in my in southern Lancaster county. I actually called the vulture spot because I had a vulture experience there. But we were down in the creek and it's a decent creek, maybe like 20 feet wide, not really that deep, but it's beautiful and feels very, very remote. It's very quiet. And then a blue Heron started with flying up the creek, probably ten feet above the surface of the creek. So just ten feet overhead and it's going towards us. And I've seen blue hair and fly from a distance. So I've never had the experience prior to this of seeing it fly more or less at the same elevation that I'm at. You know, I'm order rock in the middle of this creek. And it's flying towards me and to see the majestic nature in terms of how it flat its wings and just like the size of the birds. And it was it was a unique experience for me. I'd never seen it, and it moved me. I was like, holy shit. And it was crazy because this blue Heron was flying for some distance with Jenny and I we kind of like see what's happening. Like, you know, it's happening really fast. And we recognize how cool it is and how unique it is. And then all of a sudden, the blue Heron realizes we're there and completely like those off its course and flies away from us, but there was this moment where it was flying right at us. And it did not know it did not know that we were there. So there was that. That was a big thing to probably the middle of the summer. But now the second blue hair and things happen probably about two weeks ago..

"We looked it up and it turns out this type of bird has three different eye sockets or not eye sockets. Eyelids. Three different upper lids. One of them is for nighttime. One of them is for daytime. And then I think the other one is on the side and it kind of interacts with both. But they have two different eyelids, one for nighttime and one for daytime. I thought that was really interesting in their eyelids aren't closed. They don't close their eyes from seeing the same way our eyelids may actually translucent. So the bird can rest, but still able to see if there's any movement around it. Maybe that would wake it up from its rest and put it in an alert. But I thought that was very interesting and to expand on it even further Tara and I wouldn't call it an argument, but we definitely were a little tense on our way from the apple Orchard to the river spot because there's been this overwhelming sense between us of comparison. She sees all that I'm doing with my podcast and sort of becoming my own self employed entrepreneur in the sense. Not that she's jealous, but she's like, well, I need to be able to do the same thing for myself, you know? Like she's feeling and I remind her you're not inadequate you got this. You know, it's only a matter of time. I'm very patient. I'm not, I mean, I don't expect her to wake up tomorrow morning and be like, I know what it is. I'm going to be an author. You know, or whatever, she's got a lot of intentions and directions and I think it's more of a matter of focusing in on one. But we had a kind of like a tough talk, so to speak, and I'm like, listen, you know, if you want to do this, you got to, you know, really do it. I think I use the metaphor of if you want to fly, you don't hang out in the swamp with frogs and toads. You go hang out with the birds. I literally said that, you know? And then a couple hours later we're saving a bird. And it was really my point was to tell.

"So now I want to go and look a little bit deeper is so we know that there was there's a leg. Here's a leg injury, which is associated with the bird. And then we also know that you just said to me when we first started our conversation, he said, you know what? I'm having a little bit of an issue with one of my eyes. In fact, one of my eyes, I almost am blind or I can't see without through that eye, probably an irritation from a contact lens is what she said. Regardless, regardless of whatever the cause is, it's happening now. It's happening in this window as a matter of fact and so it was the birds left leg and it's my left eye. There we go with that. And there's all sorts of different ways. You know, are you right handed or left handed? Right, handed. Right handed. So your left side is your receptive side. Because you throw with your dominant hand. You receive with your left. Right. You were left handed. It would be the other way around. So if you want me to look at it that way or you know, you can just look at it like the left side is also thought of as the mother lineage. All of these that's another way of looking at it. But you get to decide which way you're going to zero in whatever feels most appropriate. But, you know, we have those two sort of symbols that in which where we stand, the left foot, so maybe, you know, something with you you mentioned specifically about the importance of a bird's legs and for the ability to take off. You know, because a bird primarily moves through flight. The leg has to do with the beginning of the journey. All right, so we can see that. And then we could also see something as it relates to part of the pond T vision. And so there's something with that. So these are also archetypes or symbols living symbols which are in play in this story of what is happening through this window..

"Let's look start to paint the picture of what actually occurred because when we're having these experiences, you know, we're like caught up in the flow of life. We don't necessarily look at it or appreciate it in terms of what we're what we're seeing. So we want to begin with that. All right, there was a whole bunch of things that were sort of taking mental notes. So I wanted to go next. So we start with the hair. So generally this generally speaking, how would you describe your body type? I am what you would call in the Ayurvedic terms a vatta, which means that I have air and I think fire is voda. But I am very tall, very thin. I think there's a physiological term for my type. It's called an ectomorph. Somebody who's very tall and thin. Correct. You have very long you have very long lanky limbs. I too. You're just an extreme, like I have that body type as well. I'm at Gilmore, but you're like what? You're 6 three, 6 four? Well, I don't want to exaggerate folks. I am really 6 8. Sometimes people 6 to 8. You are 6 8. What percentage of the population succeed? I'm going to say like .04%. And the point I'm trying to make is of them, they're all basketball players. And so you have a very, very distinct body type. You know, one ectomorphic is less common. And then also like, I'm 6 foot tall. So you're 6 foot 8. Like, you know, you have an extreme version of this physical archetype. So how would you kind of describe in the realm of the aviation kingdom of a winged the winged ones, like what's the hair? How would you describe a hair in relative to a chickadee to even like a hawk or something like that? Heron is it's ectomorphic..

"They expand when they make this call. It's like a Reed instrument, you know, the way the air moves through it. And I could see it like vibrating and the little feathers on his neck would stand out. It was very interesting to see all that detail. So close. Like I said, these birds are so elusive. You barely get a good look at them unless you're in the scientific position to study them and capture them and whatever those bird scientists do to them. I'm really in awe of how beautiful this bird is because it's not like a small bird. It's very large. Kind of formidable. And yeah, making a lot of noise stretching his neck. I come out of this bush and I like I said, this is a busy road. People are driving by nobody stops, but everybody kind of look to see what the heck is this guy doing, you know? Because I have a huge four foot long bird in my hand. So I'm like, all right, Tara, get in the car, you drive, I sit in the back seat. She opens the door for me and I get in the backseat and I'm just kind of holding on. Hoping that this guy doesn't freak out in the back car, a backseat of the car. Luckily, he was very, very calm once he got in the car. I think he either realized I'm not getting out of here. Can't fly out of here, or maybe his depth perception was off because the seat was black. So he's kind of just staring into the blackness of my car seat. And at this point we're like, all right, where the heck do we bring them? Because it's a Friday. It's getting late, dinnertime. People the vets and all these different animal rescue places, they're not open. So we're calling. We go to this animal rescue place, and it's an abandoned lot. On Google, Google it says animal rescue. You show up there. It's literally like a parking lot. No building, just like three or four apartment buildings in an old bodega. But no animal rescue place. I'm like, what the hell? I'm losing losing my cool, because I got this bird. Tara is on the phone. She's also driving and we're in a pretty busy part of the state. It's funny. Connecticut's like an odd mix. You could be ten minutes here in the middle of nowhere and then the next ten minutes here right in a busy road in a busy city. So we're in this kind of I'll call it a ghetto, Bristol, Connecticut, it's pretty much a ghetto. I'm like, why the hell did we come here? They're not going to be able to help her in the middle of the ghetto. So I'm kind of getting mad at tarik because it's not her fault. It's a high stress situation. She doesn't know off the top of her head where to bring a freaking Heron. Some like, we need to go to a farm. We need to go to a place that already has animals right now, you know? She goes into her phone and whatever it was, intuition, grace, she called a farm that happens to also rehabilitate birds. Just the first chance she calls this place stony brook farm. It's funny because there's a brewery in Connecticut called stony creek and their logo is a great blue Heron. So I thought that was an odd connection..

"But it's the hanging hills and it's like a red rock sort of cliff face that just juts up out of this one little town above a pond and a river. And that's where merit in is. Again, side note. So I'm like, all right, let's go, let's go to this organic farm. We had two choices. We could have went to one on the eastern side of the state. We could have went to one on the western side of the state. For whatever reason, I'm like, let's go to the one in Bethlehem, Connecticut. Secretly, it was because there's a grocery store near over there that I wanted to go to. So I didn't tell tera that because she was all about going to the farm that day. She didn't want to go grocery shopping. But I had my own secret plans of maybe stopping at this organic grocery store. So again, adding to the whole randomness of the day. We're driving through Morris Connecticut. I know I'm hitting people with a lot of names, but that's all right. Just know that where we were at the apple Orchard and where we are in Morris, both of those towns are on the ham and asset line that we've been investigating. We're driving along on our way to Bethlehem and it's one of those days where I'm like not the best driver in the sense that I'm distracted. I'm not paying attention to the GPS as much as I could, which is fine because we're not in a rush or anything. Naturally, I probably missed a few turns and we were off schedule as to evil would have expected us to be there by. But I'm so glad we were. As we were passing by this nursery and a farm, we see off to the left of the road, a great blue Heron. And for those who don't know what a great blue Heron is, it's a very large bird, maybe one of the largest wading birds in our state. It's about four feet tall. It has a wingspan of about 5 feet and a half when it's fully grown. It's beak is like a four inch dagger. It uses its long neck to and beak to catch fish and all sorts of other creatures. But you see them flying in the sky and they're really beautiful. They got these long necks and they curl them up against their chest when they fly and they have these long legs that kind of dangle behind them. They're really interesting birds. They're very elusive. If you see one in the river, hunting, or you see one, you will happen to walk near one on a trail. They'll immediately fly away. They're not the type. They're not like a Turkey, they're not going to hang around. So it was a rare thing to see a great blue Heron that close to the road. I'm like, that's not normal. There's no way this bird just decided it's going to stand on the side of the road..

"He was from I think the lower, a little bit lower than cooperstown area. So it's like the New York part of the Susquehanna river where he particularly lived at this point in time, but he was from the Ohio River valley and died in Canada. This was just towards the midpoint of his life. But the Mohawk Indians were very legendary all across the east coast for being brave warriors, brutal warriors. It's interesting because they had all of these alliances with the British, the Germans, and the different colonists. They almost saw the colonists more of an equal than they did, their fellow indigenous tribes because where I'm from, there's the housatonic river. And I think I mentioned this on this podcast. I was like, I don't know what the housatonic means and I want to find it out. Well, I found out that the actual name of the river is the puta tuck river. And that is given its name from a very well-known prominent chief who was sort of like the patriarch of many different clans that all settle along this river. But one thing I learned while I was researching this housatonic river is that when the Mohawk Indians would come, the puda tuck Indians had a series of mountains where they could convey a message over 200 miles within two to three hours through a series of calls and alerts. In those times, if the Mohawk showed up, you had to pay them tribute or they would take your whole tribe clan hostage and kill all the men and take the women and children. So it was very the Mohawk were very different than this kind of Thanksgiving idea that we have of indigenous people. They were all nice and hunting and we came along. We screwed it all up for them, got them sick. I feel like you either get the whitewashed pre or post World War II version of Native Americans where they were just like happy go lucky hunter gatherers who got squashed by modern times. Pre World War II, the narrative was like, well, they were so savage and they didn't only the ones that went with Christianity were worth saving. And the rest were just savages. Neither of those explanations are true..

"We set out to go apple picking. And we didn't have an apple Orchard in mind. But we decided we'd look for one along the ham and asset line. Now, I told you a little bit about the ham and asset line, I think on episode two, and you told me I should buy a book called the Gaia matrix by Peter shampoo, right? Well, I bought that high pronounce it. It's filled with a CH. It's a French spelling. It's not like what you put into clean your hair. Right, right, right. And you're the third person to pronounce it that way. Or maybe I don't know if that's how you originally pronounce it. But other people. No, I never pronounce his name. I don't know how to say it, but I'd like to share too. I struggle with a lot of words in particularly forward words. So I'm going to stick with shampoo, but I don't know if that's the actual pronunciation. But nonetheless, nonetheless, go on with the story. So you got the guy matrix? I got the book. So this Friday, we didn't have the book yet. I'm just bringing that up as a side note because the Hammond asset ley line is something that we've been really interested in studying and you suggested that I get this And I love how you how you are tying it into as an idea, you know, there's this ley line, and this is where it is. And then it becomes personal and the fact that you're like, oh, well, we're going to go apple. We want to go to an apple or it should see if we can go and find something on this line. That's bringing that's an awareness. And it's bringing that level of awareness into your actual life. And what I would say would be like a really fun and kind of human way. It was. Yeah, we got into it. We got some apples. We were trying to find an organic apple farm, but it's like, it's an odd, it's an odd thing. When you ask people about when you ask farmers about whether they're food is organic or not because there's a lot of license sing and certification that goes along with becoming USDA organic, so a lot of farmers get upset and they're like, you know what? Take it as an insult to the quality of their food..

"You could look at it in terms of do you have any hard aspects to your Saturn, like if you're Saturn square, your song or something along that, it would imply that it's going to be like your Saturn returns are going to be really intense areas of growth or they can be a little bit more a little bit smoother and that could show itself as like really grounding into more maturity, more mature role, however you want to define the truth in your life. So the fact that you're aware that the fact that you're looking at that lens of your life and your journey, like, okay, I'm stepping into the street of time to be that is an indication both symbolically and literally of becoming aware, becoming aware of your life as a journey. You know, we said in the beginning about, you know, it's hard to see growth when you are just like living in the present moment. And there's something really, really powerful about being present, but then at the same time to step out of the presentness to step out of flow and to look and reflect, you know, that always provides a different view of your life and your life trajectory and so forth. Yeah, absolutely. I think that's something, you know, I hope people listen to this. Take away from our conversations is that life is a journey. Take it upon yourself to make it a fun one. You know? But yeah, certainly a lot has changed, but no turmoil yet. So we'll see. Well, it's not it's a time frame. So it's like one of these things like what I would recommend is like, you know, having an awareness of this period of one's life. And then usually through life has been unfold as life has been unfold..

Veterinarian Recommends Year-Round Preventative Treatment for Ticks and Fleas
"Cat and dog owners. Dread seemed ticks or fleas on their furry friends. These parasites can spread disease and make pitchy and miserable. It can be so bad that they cause lots of skin damage from their nails. they get secondary infections. they'll lose their hair and overall just a complete nuisance to the animal and the owners. That's brian heron a veterinarian at kansas state university. He says fleas like warm humid weather. So pets are most likely to catch them between spring and fall but flea infestations can happen in winter too especially as the climate changes as winters become milder fleas day active longer and as conditions change. Some species of ticks are expanding their ranges. Where i'm at in kansas. Are predominant tickets. The lone star tick in our area. It's spring summer type of tick and so as the temperatures change as it becomes warmer as we have shorter periods of cold than its range is actually moving northward so herron recommends year round flea and tick prevention even if you live in the northern us. That's really the safest
Best of 2020
"Up next we meet one of ireland's finance jeff's kp mcmahon based in galway the michelin starred chefs. Culinary accomplishments include any restaurant and anne robotic cookery school as well as his. Release the irish cookbook. One of the most beautiful cookbook releases off. Twenty twenty till's the story of irish feud and how it has evolved over thousands of years showcasing the richness and variety of food from this green islands with its five hundred authentic recipes. The author jp mcmahon jones me in the studio back in march to discuss the book on how irish food is about so much more than just lamb stew and potatoes as was initially. It was a bit apprehensive because there are many many irish food cookbooks in the twentieth century. But i suppose. I found that a lot of them had been written for an irish audience or perhaps people travelling to ireland. It was important for me to try and give an international dimension and was one of the reasons why publishing with fight on made a difference because they have a global reach and it was in order to try and change the perception of irish food. I think also because we have a restaurant called a near which is will mission star restaurant. We've had it for ten years and we've been investigating irish food for ten years and i felt a lot of the things that we've been doing over. Those ten years weren't in cookbooks. And some of them are very old things like using seaweed using wild food in different ways. And i wanted i suppose that a record of that and that was the start i think the initial for doing it was a had traveled a lot to different places and taking part in chef events and i realized that are affected that we had really good produce in ireland. I'm we just weren't singing about it now. I took part in events in mexico in america and canada in europe and we were always celebrating the cuisine of a particular area. And as why are we doing this. And why aren't we kind of like saying well. We have really good food where shellfish or or whatever so. They were kind of the driving forces behind the book. Now what do you think. Ireland has been so modest about its food on its culinary legacy heritage. I think there's a certain humbleness modesty to irish people and they're probably not the best people at selling themselves like i think we're frustrated capitalists and we want to do things but at the same time we don't want to come across as being bombastic. I think that's worn element. I think the second element is the famine and the subsequent diaz before that happens. I think that impacted irish food particularly of the twentieth century and on the one hand you had people that did not have that much access to food in art and even though there was a lot of food and then the second part you had people who did have access that is food. Who were i think. Predominantly from the anglo-irish irish element and some has be would call the west brits so the people who would be associated with england and these people who had food. I think we're not considered to be irish often. This kind of tension between the tradition that it goes all the way back at least a thousand years between people on the island and people who have food and people don't have food on who we consider irish what we consider irishness tried to take a very broad perspective on it. And so when you go into the archives of the recipe books that you find are from landed gentry anglo-irish aristocracy mostly on. I think when became independent in nineteen twenty two. We kind push that assignment. But that's not really irish. You talk about going to the archives of research did you actually conducts to gather all these five hundred recipes. You having this book. Some of it was looking at best. Baseball's cookbooks from the nineteenth to twentieth century and looking through tried to pick recipes that i thought represented ireland in that respect i found stuff like say pollen is a river fish that is almost forgotten and offend a wonderful pollen recipe. I think in the nineteen seven book and interest. Enough are fishmonger had just been talking about pollen and nobody easing it and it all goes to europe and his fish from nee in northern ireland. That was one thing. I think looking ass older manuscripts was wonderful thing. Because i love history as well and looking at how people wrote recipes and how they i suppose. There was a certain assumption in recipes that the person who was reading new it already so the method was very very scant and often the recipe books were household management books. That would be passed down from mother to a daughter to a granddaughter so people could be able to cook the recipes. Were very interesting. A lot of pickles. Stuff a lot of preserve stuff because there was no frigid. So a lot of salting like i suppose. There's almost like how to live because if you couldn't do these things then you in trouble. Did you come across many recipes that had been practically forgotten already. Yeah like one or two some that we probably would not eat now. One was pickled herring. Which i thought was really interesting because i did a story and friend of mine because i thought didn't they meant herring and she was like no. That's terron lake orion and i was like wow because there's one heron galway and flies up and down and if anyone was to pick them i be in trouble but the interesting thing was that it reminded me of like an s quebec spanish dish where they cook fish or chicken and they covered in vinegar and wine solution and essentially that was the recipe and the recipe started off was like chopped the heads off one hundred hereon got and viscera them. That was the start of the recipe. And i was like wow. That's already a big mess. Some of the other things that are still useful. I think i put it in was quincy and quincy eric. Something that are not native to ireland but there was a lot in the seventeenth and eighteenth century that would preserve a lot of quences and so preserved. Quincy was what i would call mark cross again and again and again and also recipes would almonds. The irish were obsessed with amines. Which again is one of those interesting things to think about because again. Do not come from ireland.
What do we know about Joe Bidens cabinet?
"Us president donald trump was never going to react to losing the two thousand and twenty election gracefully us. President donald trump has never reacted to anything gracefully as we go to air trump continues to insist that he's crack. Legal team are going to unveil conclusive evidence of monstrous voter fraud any day. Now although on current form trump's personal attorney rudolph giuliani clearly. Clearly voter fraud easily. Provable seems just as likely to unveil the heron he has appointed his deputy however earlier this week trump or whoever priced his sweaty phone from his. Tony hands grudgingly tweeted that the us general services administration the body which oversees presidential transitions should do what needs to be done. This will make life somewhat. Easier for president elect joe biden. Who will now have access to government funding office space senior officials and intelligence briefings among other things. It also means that he can name his cabinet with increasing confidence. Very possibly because president-elect biden has wanted to emphasize legitimacy in the face of the incumbents ongoing tantrum vis-a-vis the election results. We've learned a lot quite early about the administration. He intends to lead from january twentieth. Is a team that will keep our country and our people safe and secure. It's a team that reflects the fact that america is back ready to lead the world not retreat from it once again. Sit at the head of the table. We will come presently to who. And what is in biden's cabinet but at least as significant things being as they recently have been is who and what is not biden has not at least as of this broadcast awarded any government position to any obvious crooks crepes clowns ding bats. Yahoos griffis spivs cracks. He's own ghastly children or they idiot husbands but wild president-elect biden does have the advantage of a low bar to climb over. It doesn't mean that he's choices are excused scrutiny especially those pertaining to foreign policy on the grounds that. Us foreign policy often has a way of becoming of the people's domestic reality president. Trump's first secretary of state was to put it charitably unorthodox unorthodox choice. I'm not here to represent the united states government's interest. I'm not here to to did norm. Norma here to criticize it. That's that's not what i do. I'm businessman. Rex tillerson a career oil. Baron wants personally awarded. Russia's order a friendship medal by president vladimir putin president-elect to biden could scarcely have made a moral docs pick as america's top diplomat. And that's where the men and women of the state department foreign service officers civil service. That's where they come in. I've witnessed their passion their energy their courage up close. Antony blinken is a career foreign policy. Boffin who served as deputy secretary of state and deputy national security adviser during the presidency of barack obama with national security advisor trump also tried to be a bit left field. He named lieutenant. General mcmaster a serving soldier and actually not a ridiculous choice. Mcmaster is a smart serious and sensible man and all of those reasons fell out with trump. who replaced him with incorrigible. Neo-con head banger. John bolton who only looksmart serious and sensible when standing next to donald trump but this arrangement proved unworkable. Good to everyone. I'm paul affairs. We are coming on the air right now with our breaking news just moments ago. President trump tweeting that he has asked his national security adviser. John bolton to resign. Joe biden has named jake sullivan. I pledge to you. And to the american people that i will work relentlessly in service of the mission you have given us to keep our country and our people safe to advance our national interests and to defend our values who was the president-elect's national security adviser when the president-elect was vice president he also helped negotiate the nuclear deal with iran from which trump famously flounced trump's first. Us ambassador to the united nations was not a completely absurd choice former south carolina governor nikki. Haley he's second ambassador to the. Un was a completely absurd choice. Prodigious republican donut kelly craft. It could actually have been worse. Trump wanted to appoint his daughter. Ivanka but griped that he would be accused of nepotism. I've heard i've already vodka. I've heard how good woody vodka the people that know. There's nothing to do with nepotism. But i want to tell you the people that know no that evacuate would be dynamite about You know then. Be accused of nepotism if you can believe it right. This was accurate in as much as demanding money from bank tellers. Gunpoint can lead one to be accused of armed robbery. I want to say to you. America is back. multi-lateralism is back. Diplomacy is back.
Trailing in the Polls and Time Running Out, Trump Looks for One More Comeback
"From his first day in office Donald Trump has been the shock-and-awe president, but it's possible with three weeks until election day that Mr trump has lost his ability to shock and awe us and with his poll numbers slipping what we've seen in the past week has been especially Trumpian. Even for president trump he told Americans not to let the coronavirus dominate their lives after he received access to treatments most Americans still can't get claim. There's now a cure for cova lengthy appearance on rush limbaugh's radio show appeared on another show for a so called virtual medical exam with a friendly Fox doctor in another city urged his attorney general to indict Joe Biden and President Obama successfully pressured secretary of State. Mike. POMPEO to agree to release Hillary. Clinton. Emails pulled out of covid relief talks then pulled back in and pulled out of the next debate then begged back in then it was canceled. Are we shocked are we odd or we shrugging our shoulders and shaking our heads? The flurry of activity is help to put the president in political peril in five battleground states two fivethirtyeight pulling average Joe Biden at fifty percent or higher. That includes Wisconsin Michigan and Pennsylvania. The three states that put Mr Trump over the top in two, thousand sixteen, and when you look at the other swing states, Biden is leading and everyone but Texas, and it's remarkable that we're even talking about Texas meaning that in one thousand, nine, hundred, Reagan landslide is not totally out of the question. Even now with the president cleared by his doctor to return to campaigning his sinking poll numbers have made fellow Republicans nervous about their own prospects in. November. I'm feeling great I don't know about your president trump trailing in the polls and increasingly erratic spoke to hundreds at the White House on Saturday his first public event. Since being hospitalized, we're starting very, very big with rallies still reeling from his faltering debate performance isolated in the White House. The president spent the week minimizing the virus. Don't let it dominate. You don't be afraid of it I think this was a blessing from God that I caught it. I'm telling you we have a cure more than just a therapeutic. We have a cure, any thirty, six, our conservative media blitz Mr Trump spent two hours on the phone with rush limbaugh? Tear.

We're not wearing masks at what point do you think you contracted it looking back? I don't know the they had some big events at the White House and Perhaps there. But this week, the president appeared to blame his infection on gold star military family they come within an inch, my face sometimes they wanna hug me and they wanna kiss me. Than they do and frankly. I'm not telling them. Back up as poll numbers drop, the president is searching for a political weapon publicly pressuring the Justice Department to Prosecute Democrats unless bill bar dates these people for crimes that the greatest political crime in the history of our country. Then we're going get little satisfaction unless I win and lashing out at Senator Comma Heron.

Wild Hydrangeas of the World
"Dan Hinkley it's great to have you back on the podcast. Welcome thank you very much Matt. It's great to be back. Well you've already been on the episode before and we've talked a lot about your background but for those that didn't listen or new to hearing your name Tell us a little bit about who you are and what it is you do. Well essentially A glorified gardener. I am the director at Herons Garden in Kingston Washington Nets Garden that I started in nineteen eighty seven with my partner Rubber Jones. I currently have a personal garden in India. Nola just twelve miles away from Heron's book called win cliff. Both of those gardens are open to the public. If you should ever find yourself in the areas of the we encourage people to come to walk around and and then I do a little writing. Delo speaking some design consultation so a lot of a lot of fingers in different pots but all in all plants in on all the blast. Ya Fantastically charmed existence for any plant lover but You Know People WanNa know more about your background in You're working plant exploration. They can listen to the previous episode. After that was recorded we talked a little bit about maybe diving into more detail into some of your favorite groups and we both agreed that the hydrangea. We're going to be the topic of discussion and I'm really excited to pick your brain about this. This group of plants today great. I mean it's one that I have had an infatuation with ever since I've been a kid and of course it's another one of those wonders of the plant world at once. You get to know a little you you realize how little you know and so you know it's unfolding but ever so entertaining both four in a plant explorer but also for a gardener at the such great application to gardens of North America and in Europe. Weather not necessarily native to write. And this idea that the more you look the more you realize how little you know about this group I mean. This exemplifies my entire experience Since we talked about doing this episode of growing up my experience with hydro was largely just a couple of pom pom varieties and then a little bit later on meeting. At least one or two are native species in the wild in southern Appalachia but I had no idea the breadth of what this genus in this family overall has presented the world. It's been very successful in north and south and east and West and just like you had a hydrangea. Nekia Lada outside our back door in northern Michigan. That's like zone. Three B thing. Some managed to survive in blonde some every year. And then we also had hydrangea lessons. Annabel and everybody my age at least to live on the east coast new or knows Annabel because it was such a mainstay a mop head. Arborescence wanted a heartiest hydrogen. Just so you know. That's that's where my introduction came as well but as I started traveling I was dumbfounded. By how many niches they have occupied. How successful the genus. The family as Ben as a whole and also at least in the Pacific northwest. How many of those can be brought into cultivation in? Add a great deal to the garden not only by flower but with foliage as well. Yeah and so thinking broadly about this. I was actually new to the idea. That hydrangea had. Its own family. I kind of limited with CAPRA fully. Acc so sort of a broad spectrum treatment for taxonomy sake here. What's going on with this group Obviously is a lot more refined but it was even a decade ago when I first started looking at these. You'd oftentimes find Hydrangea For Gay she was one of those bags of everything that didn't know where they belong. They put it in the sanctuary. Casey so It has now been refined obvious. Leads through a lot of different means available to taxonomic. It is a family to its own. Hydrogen Jasey and they have Would quickly dissect this. There's two sub families in hydrogen JC Eighty and James Yoy D. And then within the sub family HYDRANGEA LADY. They have made two tribes. Which are the hydrogen d. e. In Philadelphia? So it really for the sake of time in one hour fairly gonNA scratch the surface with just hydrology e which is where the the breadth of ornament event is but the the other tribe in the in the hand I drank. Philadelphia's obviously has Philadelphia has dude see as a tremendous number of other plants that we are familiar with in our garden so they're lumped rate in with hydrogen JC. Now that's awesome. Yeah then there's you know it's one of those things where again I looked deeper and realized I recognized a lot of those those. I guess that makes sense that they're related but again for the sake of time. The hydrangea you're going to be our focus specifically the genius hydrangea and roughly speaking. I mean we're we're still working and I'm sure things will change In the years or decades to come but roughly speaking how many species are within the genus. Hydrangea There's you know it changes. Because obviously lumper's lumper's splitters continually added but it ranges around sixty about sixty species. But you know they're still discovering new species and in particular in northern parts of South America just three years ago they identified. I think it was fourteen. Fourteen or fifteen new species of climbing Evergreen hydrangea from the mountains of northern Ecuador and Peru Bolivia Colombia in there. So you know. It's still a lot to be learned about true. Hydrangea as out there. They certainly have not all been discovered yet. Another big realization for me in trying to get familiar with this genus was this diversity of life-form you mentioned climbing and I'm sure. Plenty of gardeners will recognize climbing varieties of her Georgia. In of course the obvious shrubbery ones. I mean this is a really cool thing that that seems. Like hydrangea has found different ways. To make a living as a woody plant depending on where you're you're looking for them yet no Absolutely Obviously most people in North America will be familiar with hydrogen novela which is an Asian species. That's the hardest most dependable deciduous flowering plant for Shade Climbing Planet. I should say ourself clinging plant for shade in climates But new go south on occasion in Asia's while you find climbing evergreen species of hydrogen in I would say ninety nine point nine percent gardeners even in the Pacific northwest where we can grow. So many of these are aware of the fact that there are climbing evergreen branches at provide grateful during the summertime and wintertime and then beautiful flowers. That are dead ringers. For what we in our minds think of is a hydrant right on and in thinking about sort of diversity at least here in North America You know sort of West East divide always stands out especially when it comes to gardening You're located on the West Coast as you mentioned what you have over there or is this something that at least in. North America is largely assigned to east of the Mississippi and Sorta down south from there. So like in a broad sense mad here. I'm I'm sitting nine Sonny Bloch this morning a rare sunny day in the puget sound area and right off the block that I live on the two hundred foot bluff repeat Assam. We have native stands of our native Philadelphia's Philadelphia's Louis named after obviously Lewis and Clark fame and in the broad sense that is indeed in the hydrant JC. So I can't discount the those plants. If you to California now you can find Wesleyan Carpentaria and of course James Lia and a few other genera mostly not all that ornamental so. I can't say that west of the Mississippi is deposited in hydrogen JC but Zero through hike packages zero. So we have to get east of the Mississippi before we run into the only two representatives of the genus in North America. And you. You've already made not worth one of those are Bresson's which is very widespread from New York. Even Southern Quebec all the way down into Florida and the Gulf states and has variations of geographical variations within. But just a darn good dependable plant for gardeners and then Hydrangea Chrissa fully. Which is more? Gulf state oriented a beautiful very distinctive. You know probably one of the most distinctive hydrogens in the entire family is is found in in the Gulf states and You know turn the breeders loose on these which they have with Gusto in the last ten to fifteen years in your ending up with these new pink varieties of our lessons and then all of these extraordinary forms of The Oakley Hydrangea. So far cry from what was available to me as a young lad when we had a Annabel that was about it. Now we have you know pink the pink forms bread by the Maestro of plant breeding.

Carl Thomas explains the prospect of Hearables-as-a-Platform
"Carl's based in London and You know what's cool though is it's like when you're in a niche of a niche. You know I'm insurable. So being a niche of wearables you sort of start to familiarize yourself with WHO's who on social media in Carlsbad active for a few years as of I and I've gotten to know him and just like I really like his thinking and so when I got when I decided to do the podcast like looking at the list of people that I wanted to bring on in Carl was first and foremost for my hero. People that I wanted to bring on because because I think he has a really interesting perspective and You know I think one of the things that I wanted to start out with with this conversation is your relationship with Nikon Con Nikon gene the analysts who actually coined the term Cheryl's He and Carl. No each other in Carl's had a a good chance to kind of get to know him his thinking and so I thought we'd maybe start there. Tell us a little bit about like what you've learned from Nick in the time spent with them. Yeah sure so give context. When is that my company back in two thousand twelve? That wasn't really elaborate markets in London. And I say that there are a lot of people thinking about where I was really. There were people who will come together as community. Talking about some of the challenges the web was in dip applications in different markets. Where are half it to try? Like to get market penetration so I set up a community of web enthusiasts cool route is London and it was reached a chance to get engineers entrepreneurs investors people that were just infused where things together top CIA around applications markets and our very first event. Nick was my very. I took a bit more about love as time. And this is plotted to his. I'm not paper. where he talks about? Edition of herons to become him. Speaking buds it's nick announced himself as someone who is A. He announced himself as someone. Who's everything Wi fi incorporates? The snow plows right through to deal with that. Got My attention but mostly big based on will always doing. We're talk a lot. Around the evolution of headphones and talk law dates utility they can provide and he then at twenty fourteen announced his white paper by he looked at from his perspective. Marinates especially in Britain take stock into them to provide extra attention experiences. I'm then what that would look like shit. The Bowl to provide an acacias boy speaking in the house so I think think that kind of obviously gave us a lot of common ground to talk about what we have been thinking about central but then from my perspective that paper early Wednesday far in terms of giving us an inside was thinking. I'm really privileged. Have number charged with him and I think he's really Understand is actually. What's this ongoing experiences? Actually utility that we can provide on a regular basis of the physical products. And when can you speak to about different types of hair. CA- market over the last five. Six years is being healthy sceptical about their prospects purely only because he sees the potential paypal's has been something whereby they can provide an ongoing. I'm experiencing utility to people to really help so somebody's grandma I'm just. Yeah and you know this idea of a platform right. It's like as the world becomes more subscription based it's like like every single day it seems like the world becomes a little bit more subscription oriented. This idea of as a platform is a really intriguing idea. I am one example that I'll give for. That is the idea of hearing aids. You know as a subscription you know think of it as you as an individual have have some type of you know if you have some type of hearing loss you have a very unique type of hearing loss in a way that in of itself is like a prescription right in so your hearing care provider determines your prescription and then they program you with your you know you call it your medicine call it that you're hearing aid but it's that it's that a calibrated frequency You know like the whole way in which the blanking on the word the Audio grim the audio metric configuration of your of your hearing and and so you think about this as a platform right so a lot of the hesitancy with buying a hearing aid comes with the sticker shock that's associated with the high high price point. Because it's a it's an upfront payment so rather than that. What if you actually unbundled a hearing aid in the device itself cost X.? Amount of money and then your pain on a monthly basis for your prescription right. You're paying for that preprogramed that's catered specifically to you. It changes over time. Because you're you're hearing loss tends to depreciate over time and so you have this you have this hearing hearing aid that is more or less a widget but it's It is on a subscription basis that you're subscribing to your prescription and that's just one example of this idea of how these these types of in the devices whether it be from a medical application or more of consumer application You can start to see ways in which you can can actually layer subscriptions in such in truly make these things platforms.
