"hitchhiker" Discussed on Car Talk

"Go on. It's almost embarrassing, though, when I have anybody get in my car, you know everybody loves this car, they all comment on how it looks like some sort of spaceship. Yeah. But then when they get in. They say, well, looks nice, but let me out. Spaceship with a proper sanitary facilities. I don't know if the astronauts are having this problem. Well, they may, but they're a tough crew, I guess. See, dancing on worried about if I'm blowing legionaries. Well, most spores don't necessarily bear legionnaires disease. I mean, that was a weird situation anyway. But it may be that this is only the first step in there attempting to fix this problem. There may be step two. So I could call them again. Yes, I'd go back again. Okay. They're on the right track and I'm sure they're engineers worked hard at this. I mean, this was not something that they contrived in an evening. They worked very hard at this, and it's actually a pretty clever. I think so too. An attempt, however, I should point out that all the Honda and Toyota owners who have this problem have been told, that's tough. I think it's nice that GM one out of their way and try to fix the problem for you. I just wanted to make sure that I wasn't going to kill every child that got in my car and you might be. No, you won't kill them. You might infect them, but then you probably won't kill them. They may infect survive this. But I would be on the safe side for those first few minutes to leave all the windows open. Start up the engine. Turn on the air conditioner. And don't get in. I'll tell you. Smell is just as bad after 15 minutes to when you first get in. You just get accustomed. Oh, isn't that a horrible thought? Think of that. Yeah. It isn't any better. Next time you see a hitchhiker, pull over, have the hitchhiker get in within 30 seconds. If he doesn't accept the ride, you know that you're in trouble. He says never mind. I'll wait. Good luck. Let us know. Okay, I know I still have the problem. Let us know if you come up with something because we'd be very interested. All.

"It's probably acceptable for public radio. It wasn't a four letter word. It was 5. Okay. Now, I complained about this in the very beginning to the dealer who told me that I was not I shouldn't worry about it and it was probably my imagination. Well, in the fact that I'm a little bit worried I might kill the entire girl scout troop with the legionnaires disease. I called them GM. And they said that they had developed some sort of a blower to install in the car, which they went ahead and did. It took them about 5 hours to install this. But it's still not doing any good. As a matter of fact, I just got home and when we turned the car on, it smelled so bad. My 11 year old was just about sick from this melt. Right, now let me get this straight. The smell occurs when you first turn it on in the morning, but does it then go away? Yes, it goes away. It goes away. It goes away after the air conditioners on a while, but then when you turn it on again the next day, it's melt again. And GM, what is this blower? Jim acknowledged this. They did a full year analysis on this big boy. And they acknowledged that this problem does exist. Yes. And it really is urine, huh? Well, what is the smell? What's the nature? I mean, what did they say, the nature of the smell is? Okay, what everybody has calculated so far. And for some reason, I think they may have fixed this in the 1991 model because they have acknowledged that this all happens and even created this special little blower system to dry out the pan is that the bacteria is growing in the water. In the evaporator, okay? That it causes a horrendous smell. Once the bacteria grows in there. Sure. And when it's dry, you don't smell it. But when it's wet, well the problem is exacerbated by the fact that you live in the damn jungle. Right. And I'm.

"Hello and welcome to NPR's car talk with us click and collect the tap of brothers and we're broadcasting this week and this week only. Yeah? From the mirage. No, we're broadcasting from the car talk Plaza department of joke dissemination and folklore. Lots of people want to know, what are these private jokes that you guys keep laughing at? And we thought we should disseminate more information regarding the genesis of these jokes. That is like explaining. Anyway, we got a letter from a listener and Manchester, New Hampshire. Ashley, he has this two piece letter. He's a front and a back to this. Wow. Yin and Yang. And this has to do with the joke dissemination department. He says, so, what's the story behind? Pick up all those batons. Well, we went to see some months ago. Where was it? The entire the entire crew and staff of the show. The entirety of car talk Plaza went to see George Carlin. One of the four of us. The little bits he did was he was saying, and what is it with this Miss America contest? I think in order to make it fair, they should make them come back until they win. You should come back every year. Right, they can be coming back until I like 67 years old. And while you're at it, pick up all those batons. Well, they have an imagery, you know, good jokes. You could just see all these 70 year old women in bathing suit. Drop on those batons and tripping over. Well, let's pick up all those batons. It was a good joke. It was. It was a good jump. It was. And we steal it all the time. And we're trying to disseminate. And he says, on the back of the letter, he says, by the way, who's he, by the way? I don't know who he is. He didn't sign it. He didn't sign it. Oh, okay. He's so wait a minute. This is important, by the way, one week your staff psychologist name was mole moody. The next it was less moody. Hey, let's just move. Maybe he has a split personality. Well, anyway, if you hear some continuing reference on this show that my brother laughs about and spills his coffee over and all that and you want to know what it is, you can write to us at the department of joke dissemination and folklore or folkloric departments for caloric. That's a good word. I like that. I do. Then I see K at the end or like car talk Plaza, 6 30 Plaza a Plaza. Plaza. Wasn't it Plaza suite? Plaza, Plaza, a Plaza. I always say Plaza. Plasma.

"Yes, and he can't because you're lying in the way of his bulldozers. That's it. I think we can come to summer arrangement. Hello. Hello. Is mister Duncan to his senses yet? Can we for the moment assume that he hasn't? Well, can we also assume that he's going to be lying there all day? So, so all your men are going to be standing around here all day, doing nothing. Could be. And if you're assigned to doing that anyway, you don't actually need him to lie there in front of the bulldozer all the time, do you? Well, no, not exactly need as such. Right. So if you could just take it as red that's exactly there, then here and I can knock off down the pub for half an hour. How does that sound? It sounds perfect. Good reasonable. I suppose. And if you want to pop off for a quick one yourself later on, we can always cover for you in return. Yes. Thanks very much. I suppose we don't actually need him there for the whole time. Excellent. So if you'd just like to come over here and lie down. What? Oh, yes, it's very simple. My client mister dent says he will stop lying here in the mud. On the sole condition, you take over from it. What are you talking about? Sorry. You want me to come and ride down there? Yes. In front of the bulldozer. Yes. Instead of mister dent? Yes. In the mud in, as you say, the mood. In return for which you will take mister dent with you down to the pub. Yes. Promise. Promise. Coming off the get up, let the man lie down. Oh, and no sneaking knocking mister dense house down while he's away. All right? What? The slightest thought how did it even begun to speculate about the merest possibility of crossing my mind? I think we entrusted him myself, I trust him to the end of the earth. That's what how fast that? About 32 minutes away. Come on, I need a drink. Hardly dressed to go to the park. By drink Ford prefect meant alcohol. The encyclopedia Galactica describes alcohol as a colorless volatile liquid formed by the fermentation of sugars and also notes its intoxicating effects on certain carbon based life forms. The hitchhikers guide to the galaxy also mentions alcohol. It says that the best drink in existence is the pan galactic guzzle blaster. The effect of which is like having your brain smashed out with a slice of lemon wrapped around a large gold brick. The guide also tells you on which planet is the best pan galactic gargle blasters are mixed. How much you can expect to pay for one and what voluntary authorizations exist to help you rehabilitate. The man who invented this mind probably drink also invented the wisest remark ever made, which was this. Never drink more than two pan galactic gargle blasters, unless you were a 32 mega elephant with bronchial pneumonia. His name is safe on beatle rocks and we shall learn more of his wisdom later..

Diplomatic Pouch

"It's time for another installment of sea hunt. It still alive here on scuba shack radio. And this time. We're going back to season three episode thirty eight titled diplomatic pouch diplomatic pouch premiered on september twenty fourth nineteen sixty. Well in this episode. Mike is back in a latin american country named san miguel. His mission is to retrieve a diplomatic pouch from crashed american airplane. The show opens up with mike searching the wreck while his buddies on the surface appearing to be fishing as luck would have it. Mike find the pouch and starts to head to the surface. There's a great shot of the voight swim fins as he ascends but just as mike breaks the surface he's confronted with an armed boat of officials who are pointing their guns at him and asking him if he would be so good to come on board what to do. Quick thinking mike takes a fix on his position and drops the pouch. Who are these armed men. The guy in charge is colonel ramirez and he is the head of the coastal defense. He's cold and tough and goes over. Mike's gear with a fine toothcomb. Just then mike's friend. Paul alexander pulls up with their boat. He tells mikey sorry. That he drifted. The boat drifted off process that they are on vacation. And he's from dallas texas. Colonel ramirez tells them that they are not to dive on the downed airplane at an at the penalty by order of the dictator row. All as is that they will be immediately deported. They are welcome to fish. Just stay away from the airplane. So now paul and mike are on the bridget or boat and paul is upset about the diving when might tells him he found the pouch but he had to drop it. He says he took a position. And we'll be able to find it. But how will that be possible with the colonel watching pause. Got a plan. But mike wants to know i. Where did he get that phony. Southern accent well. Paul's plan involves dragging mike to a local cantina. The club kellyanne. Tae sign is flashing on and off as they enter once inside. They sit down in the bartender heads over the jukebox. A stereo phonic rockall roller and plays a record loudly before waiting on and paul. Something's the bartender nods and mike and pau get up and head for the back room. The ace of pulse leave is one of colonel ramirez. Deputy familiaux who calls the kernel. A pig who goes beyond the law familiar will fight with his fingertips to overthrow the hated dictator. The plane is to get. The plan is to get information from familiaux on whether the colonel is going to put a diver on the wrecked plane. Now the the scene shifts to mike and paul on the water and they're trying to get to the wreck but they're constantly being pursued by the coastal defense. Just then shots are fired from the defense boat. And they're colonel comes alongside and tells them that the penalty for diving on. The wreck is no longer deportation. It's death before they leave familiar hotels. Mike and paul that they are going to have another diver coming from the capital. Soon we now had back to the cantina. We're familiar comes in the bartender. Nods towards the back room in the room familiar hotels mike composite. The situation is desperate. what can they do. Mike knows he will be an underwater hitchhiker. But only familiar can drop a line over the side of the colonels boat you see. Mike can swim to the rack but he needs a ride back. Familiaux says it will be done. So now we have paul mike on their boat watching a coastal defence boat with its diver onboard and her headed out to the wreck plane. Mike tells paul if anything happens he needs to get out of there because he's too valuable. Paul reluctantly agrees as mike. Put the powder into his wetsuit top. Once the divers from the colonel Once the diver from the kernels boot jumps in. Mike is in the water swimming towards where he dropped the pouch. He sees the line. Familial has tossed over the side but now he needs to pop to the surface to get his bearings so he can find the diplomatic pouch just before the men on the boat turn towards mike. He slips beneath the surface a close call. Mike is now underwater searching and searching trying to find the pouch before the enemy divers season. Finally he spots the pouch intact and now he needs to get it out now. Here's where it gets a little strange. Mike is kneeling on the bottom looking at the patch. Trying to figure out and then like maybe how to open it or something. He's got a puzzled look on his face. His back is towards the plane wreck. As he's puzzling over the pouch the enemy divers spots him pulls out his knife and be lines towards mike as he tries to stab. Mike looks like the pouch gets in the way we are now witnessed to a classic underwater knife flight where mike wrestles do knife out of the bad guys hand takes out his own life and you guessed it cuts who's hose. The enemy divers forced to the surface and mike heads under the colonel's boat too high policies the diver surface in figures. There's a problem so he starts to head out. Mike is trying to figure out what to do with the diplomatic pouch when he decides to stick between his back and his doubles now. The colonel suspects that mike is with paul so he starts out in hot pursuit. Mike grabs the line and his underwater hitchhiking begins. The ride is challenging. You can see the strain on his double hose thins. Just as he's about to let go the boat slows down and pulls alongside. Paul familiar searches the boat and said no one is aboard. Paul says he just wants to go home as this is no place for a vacation. That colonel tells them to get out of his country. Once colonel leaves. Paul is despondent at the thought of losing mike just any. Here's mike call out. I think i heard him call pau. Alex i'm not sure. But as paul looks over the side mike tosses up the diplomatic pouch telling him. He forgot his laundry. Mike has yet again the day now. There wasn't any indication in credits as to where this episode was film. The plane wreck looked pretty authentic with the large propeller and debris. I wonder if this was. In the bahamas. So there you have it. Diplomatic pouch from season three of sea hunt.

You Can't Handle the (Scientific) Truth!

"I am in the very fortunate position of being able to set the scene for tonight's debate and that's actually very easy. Because the scientific truth is forty-two diet nari according to date thought a supercomputer in douglas adams's hitchhikers guide to the galaxy that spent seven and a half million years competing the answer to the ultimate question of life the universe and everything the answer to that question and therefore the ultimate scientific truth is forty two so i mean i think we don russ semi point obvious. Is that often. The truth is not very helpful tight. The ratio of a circle's circumference to its diameter. That's mathematical constant. It's a scientific truth. And when it's expressed in decimal form it has an infinite number of decimal places but but the question is actually how are an infinite number of decimal places useful to us an approximation of twenty two seven three point. One pfoa is what we can actually use in practice. We don't need a want the truth. We want something we can apply to achieve what we need to solve problems to build things to ensure the well being of our children so tonight ice with my esteemed colleagues greta and jack we will convince you that the scientific truth is not helpful to humanity particularly now and arguably more than any other time in human history. The truth is not useful for tackling the global challenges that we currently face. Greta will show you how without optimism and hype in our scientific messaging about climate change. People retreat from the truth. They feel disempowered and helpless. Jack will round out argument by showing how the relationship between science and society is changing

The movie was The book was released in seventy nine if not mistaken and in seventy nine. They're making the references of you. Know the the hitchhiker skied book And is a perfect example of how science Science imitates art Because who would it even you know if they tell them back in the day that we would have something similar to that nowadays He would probably you know..

"I absolutely adore that accent. It is so charming. It reminds me of movies like gone with the wind and like i absolutely i absolutely adored if and when when when i come to america i'm gonna spend as much time as i can in some of the southern states so that i can pick up myself and my southern accent. I i absolutely love the southern accent. I love them. Just hang out with my family. So the the other part of the story that she had told me and she forgot to mention on the call was that sometimes. It wasn't just. Because i when i was doing research didn't run across the hitchhiker's so that was interesting to hear the checker part but sometimes it was a man and a little girl as well. Okay so and she doesn't believe that was the mosman because of course she was really stuck on what happened the wings which is a major point. I but i imagine if you're magical enough to do everything else to get high wings if you wanted to buy but nonetheless. She also said that one of her friends. We're not gonna name her since we didn't get permission but one of her friends was driving along. It was almost in a car accident. And all of a sudden her car screeched to a halt without her doing anything and she heard the flapping of wings feels like the mothman saved her family. Her i am this reinforces my theory. That it's some sort of angelic interventions seriously like that that's fully and again you know. I think the renaissance probably maybe give us idea. Angels look like that i remember. I'm so i'm social. And i'm sure many of the listeners out there or you know somebody out there is going to be able to either. Correct me because i'm wrong about this. Oh be able to give us the actual source of it. But i'm pretty confident. There's a passage in the bible that speaks about angel's not being these beautiful white beings and that you never would actually want to see an angel because they're kind of terrifying to look at. I feel like it's the summary of prophecy the movie..

"Flashlights to read. Helium balloons and thou final scientific series. Is that it could be a large black batch with humanoid features. Oh just getting. That wasn't the last one and also be a heron that got caught in a garbage bag which actually is not a bad theory birds. Flying around with the garbage bag again. Doesn't explain the the cool apps or any or the is like nobody seeing is garbage bag but the sort of flying bag. Yeah maybe the science. That's all we have. I mean the only the only questions i have around the signs minutes related to anything like an existing creature like a bird or a bator heroin or one of those wondering cranes that ended up in west. Virginia is going to be some big birds. Like understand like you the crane. The crane has a ten foot one. Wingspan which is huge bugs. I mean those are big birds. If there were bats of that size or birds of that size regularly in that area you would be able to spot them during the daytime as well as the nighttime they would they would be far more sightings of them. Shortly and any Biologist zoologist would be aware of the fact that there are bats in west virginia of society of an unusual size. What's the what's the line from the princess. Diaries again unusual size to watch some of unusual size and something that is the size of a man with a ten foot wingspan. And it's a bad pretty sure we'd know about it by nal. I'm pretty sure it would be. It would be on a record somewhere. It would be the book somewhere. They'd probably be one in a museum somewhere. I think we'd be aware of that. Must be accounts. Were happening at exactly the same time. So why weren't they speckled through instead of over a five day span between between the five men that saw it and the teenagers which i'm sure will cover and the car this all happened in a very small span so if it were birds you think it would happen just not during this tiny time period year as you mentioned before as well they've been seen in chicago have been seen all over the country so them some wondering butts them getting around and if there if again if they're covering not much distance as well surely about flying from west virginia to chicago which is very unlikely thing that about would even make it that far that surely eat truly people in states along the way would have been like. Hey what the fuck is that. Big thing over there they wouldn't they would have been there would have been sightings of them as well so i don't know if i'm gonna bind. I particularly do not buy into the idea of a heron coveted in a garbage bag. I can visualize it. But he humanoid features it tastes the way the is device which many people reported different colors. I've been many people. Were reported the reflective also The pre cognition. That people were having before things would happen. Yes and and the fact that people claim that that this has also been a warning. Because most people believe it's a harbinger warning over a huge incidents including nine eleven And the chur noble experiments. so it's just little pub podunk west.

"Well. It's so good you chose not a good idea. It's a good thing. I never brought up that joke. That's okay so what you gonna tell us. So i'm going to start with a little background on the mothman prophecies because i am from west. Virginia did grow with all of these stories and personal accounts. It was first documented in the late nineteen sixties and there have been several explanations which include everything from. It's a harbinger To warn of cataclismic events and other people say it's an alien life form and there's even been connections to ufo's and The men in most of the story stopped in nineteen sixty seven after the terrible tragedy at the silver bridge incident which we'll talk more about later as far as the science on this topic. Most of it keeps coming to birds different forms of birds by the way. So we have Als sandhill cranes because sandhill cranes have a ten foot. Wingspan awhile. But but it's people who go against that say well the crane's the art native to west virginia however they do wander and they're so there were twenty sandhill. Cranes spotted in west virginia from january. Two thousand seventeen to august two thousand nineteen so the theory is twenty eight wandered and it could be. That has a ten foot wingspan. Some people think it's an owl. That's a big. That's let's big al. But actually they took people and they cut out different versions of the moth man to sorta study it and see if they could determine in the night what size was and they couldn't and so part part of the rationale is it at night. You're at a distance. How big is it. we're not really sure. It doesn't really explain the humanoid aspects of the moth man because supposed to have the wings and you're awesome apps That that how is working out like nobody's business of course attributed to folklore which is natural and most of our episodes as well of course another theory mass hysteria an even keel who is one of the authors the big author that brought mothman to everyone's into everyone's focus so that while he believed that many of the mothman accounts were genuine too because there are too many to be a coincidence. Felt that the media attention. In general hysteria among residents to small towns lead to more sightings from those ear to believe in the supernatural so even the author of the book said he felt like mass hysteria was part of the sightings and then there are also copycat hoaxes. So people say well couldn't it always been a copycat who coaxes and in fact in fact Joe nickell who's a paranormal investigator. But also skeptic said that several the mothman sightings were in fact hoaxes including construction workers. Who tied flashlights to read. Helium balloons and thou final scientific series. Is that it could be a large black batch with humanoid features. Oh just getting. That wasn't the last one and also be a heron that got caught in a garbage bag which actually is not a bad theory birds. Flying around.

Here's susan gordon from nasa's langley research center to tell us about the first rotorcraft to fly on another planet. That helicopter has to be self sufficient. It's independent other. Rovers mission rides up with the rover and then it will separate from the rover and once separated. It never goes back to the rover. This is a very small helicopter. It had to fit on the mars. Two thousand twenty rover it carries on board. Its own solar panels that can charge its batteries and it can keep it warm overnight. 'cause marcia nights get down to minus ninety degrees celsius nasa will send instructions from earth about what mission to fly to perseverance on mars. The rover will then communicate those instructions to the helicopter so on board at has enough computing power to understand the instructions and then to execute its mission named ingenuity.

"Today I am thrilled to welcome back Yonathan Golsen. Is Director of ethical imperatives LLC teaching professionals have good ethics is good business and the benefits of intellectual diversity. He's a keynote and Ted ex speaker trainer coach and Community Rabbi as well as a repentant hitchhiker recovered circumnavigator. Former newspaper columnist and retired high school teacher in Saint Louis. His sixth book is grappling with the Grey and ethical handbook for personal success and business prosperity. Thanks so much for coming back and having a conversation with me honest him. A. Delighted Diana was looking back through my files and I saw that you were the ninth interview that I? Given since I've become a professional speaker and now I've done about seventy of them and the one with you I think store ranks among the best that I've done. So you brought the best of me and. SET The bar. Very. Well I have to say it was one of my favorite conversations that you are one of my favorite guests so. I'm so glad to have been able to help you get into this whole realm of podcast res. so so I want. So congratulations on the book by the way you. I am really tremendously impressed with it and. But I WANNA talk about obviously ethics. And? Most leaders are many leaders. Put Ethics in the soft skill category. Ned restarted. Okay, go ahead 'cause that's a problem. Isn't it? Yeah. Sounds, skills is one of those. Terms that we use or some IOS for something that is sort of optional. Or we'll get to it after we get to all the important stuff. And as I've been discussing this more and more. I keep tweaking and refining. My definition ethics. which ultimately has to do with recognizing our place in the world. And recognizing the impact that our actions have on those around us. Because that's. What forms relationships? And success in every aspect of her leads is all about relationships family business community. Nationally, locally. And you see the fallout. I mean. Another election. When you know every four years, we think it can't get worse than this and that it dies. If we if we would cultivate the sensitivity for ethical speech ethical behavior. What I call the mindset. That would really transform our conversations are relationships and. Really everything that the shapes the quality of our lives. Boy I so agree with you I think ethics and and maybe more. So now because of. Everything that we are witnessing in the world. That is so incredibly. Central. In in my opinion to how we show up in the world. that it really needs to be relegated doing more important. Place in business and politics seventy. Child rearing. Certainly, as a rabbi had come at everything from the illogical or biblical point of view as well and in Jewish tradition. We understand that the the second temple in Jerusalem, which was destroyed by the Romans in your seventy. the underlying cause of the breakdown in Jewish society that led to the temple's destruction. Was the Jews did not go beyond the letter of the law. and. That's a pretty astonishing comment. I mean, they were keeping the law they were following the rules they were in compliance. But they used the law as an excuse. To circumvent the spirit of the law and the spirit of the lies alternately what keeps us? Society. Healthy.

"Yeah that's. Two things happened after hitchhiker Wentz number. One I douglas went and bought a porsche nine eleven like I said soon after crashed, it dot mass the second one Sony Meta and Carolina up jor at Pan. Negotiating terms with Jill Foster and Douglas for the restaurant at the end of the universe. For, much much more money. Well, yeah. It'd be better be more than three thousand pounds. The success of hitchhiker also caught the attention of other publishers and soon after there was scarcely a country in the world with the local publishing industry that Douglas didn't appear in. The money started rolling in. So he needed a process of sorting it third for pleasure. Third for retirement and a third to the accountant for tax and other legal things. We'll get back to that accountant. At a later time.

He was also employed script dot editor for doctor who the recording on the first day scheduled for the second radio series may nineteenth nineteen seventy-nine was left incomplete because Adams had not yet finished the script. Further schedule recordings on the eleventh of July and August. First of that year were also cancelled this time due in part to Adams trying to work on the L. P. RE recordings of the first series as well as its novelization. The reason why these final sessions were were quite. So legendarily fraught was that David Hatch the controller of BBC Airways made something of an uncharacteristic blunder when he managed to secure a singular. Hitchhiker the front cover of the Radio Times. On the understanding that the five episodes ran not weekly but a single week at the very start of nineteen eighty. A number of factors made the creation of the second series particularly painful for the rider, not the least of which was the concurrent scripted line revised on more than one occasion for a TV pilot hitchhiker. Early, in that year, Loyd had submitted a proposal for a small screen adaptation, which he would produce leading in May to a former commission by L. E. Boss John Howard Davies of a script do by August, which was ultimately delivered in December. The requirement to begin story. Once again from scratch should have been a relatively easy one as Adams had started out writing for TV, will chapman anyway but he could be forgiven for a slight schizophrenic feeling with Arthur Dent poised in so many confusing situations in so many media at once..

No one can really remember what the other two were but the third. Was a little science fiction comedy called the ends of the Earth. It would later be changed to. The hitchhiker's guide to the galaxy. They loved it. Everybody fucking loves it so better. On March first nineteen seventy seven, three weeks after dog Douglas's lunch was Simon Brett the BBC approved the making of the pilot of the hitchhiker's guide to the galaxy. Then before committing to the whole series, it sat on its hands for six months. Says a slow process. Acquis getting anything made is a slow process. In any case, Douglas was thrilled to get the commission and morale shot up. He was still hard up, of course, living off his parents for the BBC paid him a thousand pounds for what turned into nearly six months. Work a mind you. An. Inflation backwards nineteen seventy seven.

Overlooked Auteurs: Ida Lupino and Maya Deren

"Guys. In this first episode of your. Marathon. With my appearance films, Meshes of the afternoon at land and ritual in transfigured time and IDA. Lupino. The hitchhiker I've been thinking about how to connect these two directors and these films if it is fair to connect them. On the one hand Lupino and Darren have little in Common Darrin made experimental films bending cinemas form and it's character and narrative conventions and she worked holy outside the studio system. She was this film theorist writer director actor where she funded promoted and screened her own work off and on living room walls. Lupino on the other hand made more straightforward narrative films following character plot and structure conventions, and she worked from inside the Studio System With Archaic Pictures for example, ultimately distributing the hitchhiker. But it is notable that Lupino was actually suspended from studio contracts and when she turned to directing, she formed her own production company called the filmmakers and beyond production itself both women in their unique ways bucked the system and pioneered that own paths and I think I must say, Latinos, the hitchhiker is perhaps for me alternately as subversive as the wonderful woman figure in Darren's at land this figure who crawls and gropes her way along the long table at a formal dinner party exposing and disrupting their rituals and expectations of so-called polite society. Take the ways both Darren's meshes of the afternoon and Lupinos the hitchhiker reference and disrupt the conventions of filled noir of their day. If nor films broadly speaking are these thrillers featuring things like low key lighting and claustrophobic urban interiors kind of a somber mood a sense of cynicism inescapable fatalism, an anti hero of course, and FM fatal both films give us many of these things but new Lupino Duar in the hitchhiker rejects the classic cityscape and creates the same coster phobic intensity in a wide open desert landscape instead. She also rejects a FEM fatal that figure of Man's demise, and she focuses our attention on the brittle masculinity of her male characters, exposing guns fetish wielded only by those who are weakest and most insecure. And instead of a SAM spade type figure furiously asserting his independence, I won't play the SAP for you. Lupino suggests it's in vulnerability and Camaraderie where true strength lies. And Darren's noir infuse meshes of the afternoon while offering her character, a claustrophobic cycle of fate within the walls of a city home from which noir like death seems only escape. She even more radically rejects cohesive ideas of anti heroine, FEM, fatale, and makes her central figure a woman someone who she makes both anti hero amphay towel. And instead of a thriller playing out over a three act structure, she makes it a thriller wholly confined to one individual's mind where we see justice many twists and character trails as any new are. So my question for both of you as you begin this new marathon and consider Lupino and Darren specifically is what do you see in these directors films that like the connections to Nuwara that we've noted the film's are products of the kind of cinematic conventions that every filmmaker is in debt to, but also showcase evidence of trail-blazing in form and in content the you so much. Melissa. For that setup, we hope that we'll. Get a chance to hear from Melissa another time or two throughout this marathon. But she certainly did an excellent job getting a started she also in her extended voicemail pointed out that look was the only woman director who is included in Andrew Sarah says the American cinema directors and directions from nineteen, sixty eight, which included his ranking of directors. He kinda put him in different tiers of his Pantheon if you will and Lupino. was there, and of course Sarah the man who coined the term at least here in the United States, the auteur theory that are marathon title references he had her in the back of the book called Oddities One shots and newcomers and also rightfully points out. She wishes that says had just left Lupino out as his entry on her work basically dams her with Faint Praise Melissa gave us a question there to wrestle with. As we consider both of these filmmakers how rooted in traditional filmmaking and even especially in Lupinos case Richard in genre their films are but also how trail-blazing, how pioneering their work truly is what stood out to you in that regard with both of these filmmakers well, let me start with Darren, and first off just to say that I think meshes of the afternoon. Her first film is a flat out masterpiece it just completely. Knocked me over in a way that reminded me of a film that's in the tradition I think you could say Darren was working in and that's Louis Boone Wells whom Chen and Lu which we did as part of our boone. Well, Marathon Adam. So it's a this is an experimental surrealist film in a Lotta ways meshes of the afternoon but what is distinct about it to me is the way dare intakes this dreamlike atmosphere this the sense of dreaming the intellectual surrealism at play and made it. So intimate this movie just feels completely distinct from something like Shin and blue because it was an emotional experience for me whereas. The other one I think you're kind of like a fun puzzle to think about and it's you know. Under Lewis disturbing absolutely in it, it strikes you on that level. But here as we follow this woman played by Darren who walks into a house in the afternoon goes up some stairs notices. Some items falls asleep in a chair and then the whole sequence kind of repeats and it repeats a number of times. I just basically felt with each level even as it got increasingly surreal, it was. Another level of psychology we were really exploring of this particular person. There are ideas at play here, but there is also a person who's who's reality and whose very life we can say is at play. So in addition to all of sort of the experimental touches techniques that we can probably talk about in this this short film, it's sort of that the way the movie really captured psychological distress. Dislocation for me that makes it stand out and stand alongside I would say something like in China Angelo. Yeah, I agree and I think maybe the best way for me to try to get an answer to Melissa's question is to talk about the fascinating intersection of these two directors. We put them together pretty randomly there the first films in our series chronologically, and it worked out that we would combine some films here because the three Darren films combined are about forty five minutes and Lupinos the hitchhiker is only about seventy minutes. So that's a solid two hours there between these filmmakers but how perfect was it Josh watching? These films together and thinking about these two filmmakers together you have Lupino someone who I think is clearly interested in using cinema to reflect reality and you know this from watching the hitchhiker and especially that opening bit of text right that tells you that this is based on true events than you're going to see facts play out at uses that word and even implicating you as a viewer saying, this could be you yes. Experience could happen to you but also how focused she is on putting us as viewers through this experience with these characters so that sense of reality is omnipresent and I also know it because i. Watched a video was I think on the Criterion Channel website? It's a very short video, maybe a minute, but just kind of puts lupinos career and Perspective Imaging Sarah Smith is the critic who talks about her work and she says explicitly, Lupino wanted to make documentary style films about contemporary social problems like rape unplanned, pregnancy, disability bigamy, and the corresponding clip examples there notably, all feature women in these movies and women's stories. That's not the case at all. Of course, with the hitchhiker. Now, you've got Latino on one end of this realism spectrum, and then you've got Darren on the complete opposite using cinema not to express reality. Or reflect reality to completely transform it and I think where they meet in a really interesting way is in Lupinos, expressionistic flourishes and endurance psychological realism. You said a perfect word there the intimacy of those three shorts that we watched. That's where these two filmmakers crossover they seem so disparate and distinct, and they are, but they're also mining some of the territory.

Yeah, we could just keep borrowing that audio. The other person you hearing. Hearing right now. Is None other than Roger Nygaard? If people are panicking right now, where's Gary Yeah Panic I'm sorry, but you know she's done a few episodes without me I've done some so before, too. So vacations are due for everybody. There's precedent for this. Actually. This is relevant to our conversation. Today. Carry is celebrating her anniversary with drew her intended, and we're GONNA. Be Talking about a related topics. We say we royally. We are here with. With Roger Nygaard today who you may remember if you've listened to the entire show, you were the guest for our eighth episode. Eighth Episode Ever Wow if anybody's listening and his listen to every show since then you deserve a medal. Yeah, because a lot of shows, people have, and they deserve medals. Yeah, or at least a merit badge, a ribbon. Yeah, that was back in two thousand eleven when we started and we were talking to you then about. About the nature of existence, a documentary that you had created at that time you were exploring the depths of why we're here. All these deep questions was eighty, four, eighty three. There were a lot of questions. Yeah, I had a somewhere above eighty ninety questions that I asked everybody all my interview subjects, and squeezed it all into one documentary called the nature of existence. My core question, though above all those sub questions was. Why do we exist? What is our purpose here? Why are we supposed to do big topic in I? Set out to solve it and you did age-old existentialist question philosophers have been wrestling with it for centuries and I went out and solved. You didn't give away the answer on that episode, so you still have to watch that documentary. If you want to know the answer, but it's very socratic in that you, the the what I try to do is lead the viewer in a direction, so you can make your own decision or come to a realization on your own without me. Preaching to you, here's the answer well. That's smart. Because I think you were right to resist. Giving it on a silver platter because it doesn't work that way. However, when I made my next documentary, we may talk about today. The truth about marriage at the end I just stood up and said okay. Here's the answer. In case you missed it. Stop everything here. It is, and you did okay, so it's an eighty two minute documentary, the truth about marriage and you do you solve it? You talk to lots of experts and a lot of couples. Trying to think of couples as the correct collective term, yeah couples, but there's some complicated dynamic, because not everybody's relationship is the same. That's not a pejorative yet, but at the end of the documentary. Yes, you do solve it exactly what the truth is about marriage. I didn't know the answer when I sent out and I I become obsessed with what I'm doing wrong way. I'm such a failure. Hold on, you're leading me into interesting conversation and I haven't finished. Finished introducing you yet? We should also say by the way on that episode when we talk you us. I realized that was the first time that carried the name swap. She loves this every down then she decides to claim that she is Ross Blocher and I am thus forced by process of elimination to Declare Myself Carrie poppy. That was the first time she did it.

I've listened I have not listened to all two hundred and fifty, but I've done my share. I won't make a medal for you, but I'm impressed. I really enjoyed though I. Mean when you guys dig into something like scientology and you. You have whole run of confrontations. Yes, let's you do the first one you have to listen to the rest. Like. Where's this going? Oh, good? Okay. That's what we're hoping to get. Young her speaking of Scientology. I have a goldenrod sheet here with some questions from Kerry for you.

Battling Brown Marmorated Stink Bugs

"We're GONNA start our show today by taking a trip back to the nineteen eighties when singer. Songwriter Billy Joel was at the top of his game and he released two. Song Allentown about the decline of the steel industry. In America steel factories were closing in steelworkers. Were losing their jobs. The song shed light on the challenges the workers faced and at the same time. It made allentown a city in Pennsylvania quite famous so now let's fast forward twenty or so years. Two Thousand and one and Allentown is in the news again but this time it's because of an insect an agricultural pest from Asia had somehow found its way to Pennsylvania. The insect called the Brown rated stink bug feeds on apples. Peaches figs mulberries citrus fruits and other crops. Well it didn't take long for these tough little bugs to spread and by twenty ten. They wrecked havoc on orchards and crops in various parts of the United States. And the really bad news. Is that Brown? Mom rated stink. Bugs are still here and there on the move and they may soon arrive to a fruit tree near you. So what can we do about it? I've invited Tracy Leschi to the studio today to find out. She's an entomologist. And by the way an optimist as you will discover in this interview today. She's also the director of the Appalachian Fruit Research Station at Cairns Ville West Virginia. Her research is focused on the development of behaviorally based management tools for invasive and native pest of fruit crops. But before we start chatting I would love to hear your stories and your questions during the show you can email those questions and stories to in-studio one. Oh one at g mail DOT COM and do remember to include your first name and the city. You're writing from so tell us. Have you seen these bugs in your fruit trees? And what have you done about it in studio one a one at g mail dot com is the email so now to Tracy Leschi. Thanks for coming on the show today. Thank you Susan for the invitation. I'm so glad to have you here. And hopefully you will shed some light on these mysterious bugs. Oh my goodness so. The Story Starts Allentown. Can you tell me a little bit about that discovery? What was happening around then here. So you know Brown Mama Rated Stink Bug as you've already mentioned is a species that is not native to North America. It's native to Asian countries including China Japan Korea and Taiwan. This insect is an excellent hitchhiker And we'll probably get to that in a little while but at some point in the to late. Nineteen nineties homeowners. In and around the Allentown region of Pennsylvania were Seeing some interesting invaders in the fall to their homes and in fact these were Brown. Mom rated stink bugs. Now the issue was is that they weren't properly identified until two thousand one when Karen Bernhardt who with Penn State cooperative extension in Pennsylvania collected some of these specimens from a homeowner and she ended up sending them to attacks honest Rick Holbeck at Cornell and he identified them as Brown mom rates. Think so this was the first official record of population in North America. So how on Earth would they have gotten there? How did they get to these people's homes right so one of the interesting things about Brown mom rated stink bug is that they are excellent hitchhikers as adults and that means is that they can sort of end up being concealed and hidden from view and sort of take a journey to somewhere else and this is related to what we as entomologist refer to as their over wintering behavior which is essentially like hibernation for insects. So when these insects hibernate more or less they crawl into cracks and crevices and hunker down and wait for spring. And if these cracks or crevices happens to be in some sort of shipment of goods or perhaps in your suitcase or who knows This is how often these bugs have been transported to new locations. Whoa so how quickly would they spread? So let's say or what a what a thought. Let's say it's in your suitcase. You've gone on holiday to China. Or whatever he brought back these little hitchhiking bugs So let's say you have one bug or two bugs what happens then. How quickly would they spread? Well if you found one or two bucks I'd tell you to kill them I but You know it's a good question. They have a pretty good Reproductive capacity that sort of what we say in terms of you know how quickly can a population build up? Based on the reproductive efforts of a female a single female can lay up to twenty eight eggs at a time in in an egg mass. And she can lay up to four hundred over her lifetime. So you can imagine if you know. Just a portion of those eggs survived to adulthood and then reproduce. You can see that. A population could build rather quickly so is is that what happened like You know how quickly did this problem spread? You said it started sort of in the late nineties. It was discovered two thousand and one. And then what happens? Well what happened? After that was it was a slow spread And it was a slow build up for a number of years so in two thousand and three I found the first specimen officially outside Pennsylvania in Maryland. Just south of Allentown Pennsylvania. I in in sort of central Maryland in a town called Hagerstown There was some. Also some official detections in New Jersey and then it continued to spread through what we refer to as the mid Atlantic here in the United States and to Virginia West Virginia You know parts of Delaware Into upstate or sort of well. I should say downstate New York so the populations continued to build Over a number of years and then you know really began to build quickly back in two thousand eight two thousand nine and in two thousand and ten throughout the region. We really experienced what we refer to as an outbreak population. So what did that look like Especially if you're growing cheese. Yeah it looked well you know. When we first began to detect problems in fruit trees from Brown mom raided stink bug and say two thousand eighteen thousand nine. The issues were confined really to the late season. Where just before harvest and this is really painful. If you can imagine your fruit just about ready to be picked from the tree almost ripe. We were seeing large numbers of adult invading the orchards in the fall and feeding on the fruit and this was causing for some of our local growers up to ten percent loss. Even back then but in two thousand and ten we saw the bugs invading earlier much earlier actually just after the fruit had formed just after pedal fall essentially in these orchards. In that early season feeding really set up our growers for significant losses. Where you know for our Peach Growers. Many growers lost their entire crops. Most lost half of their crop. And then it just went on from there. You know apples and Incurred ABOUT THIRTY SEVEN MILLION DOLLARS IN LOSSES. Thousand and ten just locally. That's terrible was the fruit. Not salvageable at all. I mean what what do these Brown marmalade stink bugs due to the fruit? Yeah they are you know. They are a typical stink bug species in that their mouth parts are essentially a straw and they insert that Straw into the fruit tissue and they inject some salivary enzymes that essentially helps break down that tissue and suck out the juice and so what they leave behind. Is this dry corky tissue beneath the surface of the skin as well as discolored display depressions on the surface now for peaches because the feeding Began so early essentially once you peel that fruit. The entire fruit was riddled with these deep pockets of dead comey tissue and you know. The entire fruit was essentially unsolvable. It was just a complete loss. For FOR APPLE. Growers some of the fruit could be redirected to From sort of a fresh market to juice market. But you know they're getting Cents on the dollar in terms of the value so in essence they're losing over. Ninety percent of the value of that fruit have normally gone into fresh market. So it was very

Antarctic Is Ripe for Invasive Species

"Antarctica is a lonely continent but the Antarctic Arctic peninsula. The little tale that juts out towards South America is a hub of human activity more than fifty scientific research. Stations are based there and in recent travel season forty forty. Two thousand tourists visited mostly from cruise ships. Problem is when humans go somewhere hitchhikers. Come with like a non native flightless midge and insect sex that is already taken up residence in the peninsula region and its biomass greater biomass of all the other environment in the soil. It's already kind of taking over the nutrient cycling in non bombed. Kevin Hughes is an environmental researcher with the British Antarctic survey. He and a team of experts recently reviewed a list of one hundred and three marine and terrestrial terrestrial species that might be poised to take up residence on the continent from that list. They pinpointed the thirteen. Most likely to arrive established themselves and become invasive in the next decade at the top muscles which stick to ships and could carpet shorelines and smother native species Antarctic shores and shallow. Hello waters could also fill with crabs which have existed in those habitats for millions of years so the communities are just not used to these sorts of predators coming in on the potential for crops drops to jump away at most sitting on the seabed is quite a frightening prospect on land. The scientists flagged a might a spring tail and several species of button weed plants. As potential potential invaders. The full list is in the Journal. Global Change Biology. After kind of remember the on target is really WANNA ask great wildernesses that we have on the planet. We WanNA keep this place. Please pristine frosty research because it's tool to so much about high. The world works are climate works. High Ecosystems can be together and how they function so. It's just just incredibly important that we just keep it as pristine as we possibly come but that task keeps getting more difficult because climate change is slowly dying the frozen continent making it easier for invaders to gain a foothold.

Urban Legend: The Friendly Stranger

"Today we examine a family of urban legend what's that dates back to the nineteenth century the friendly stranger and variation the Harry armed hitchhiker amp the fear strangers up to eleven offering a story about mistaken identity acting on instinct and the dangers of taking people at their word in the friendly stranger a woman charms her way into your car but as you drive along you realize something is off in the Harry armed hitchhiker variation. She's far hairier than she should be. It's a sign of deception of evil intentions and the vulnerable woman who finds the hitchhiker in her car is right to mistrust and fear them the of a false woman is a common trope in horror stories inspired by the eroneous belief that an evil man needs only to put on a dress and makeup in order to be seen as trustworthy while it has little basis in reality this boogeyman has even found its way into politics with many ascribing militias Tint to transgender women simply because of a trend in fiction but if we examined the deception of the person in the backseat without the specific except gender identity we get a far more nuanced take an examination of the Good Samaritan Pulse in an era where we rarely know our names always let alone the people we run into at the mall at the side of the road or more in our rideshare in its simplest elements the friendly streets sure is a story about a woman struggling to decide how nice a person she can be without risking her own safety does she help someone when they ask for it despite all the potential warning signs and does being a good person matter if you're dead me was convinced that black Friday was one of the circles of hell she hated the nonstop crowds the cross Genre Smith music and the energy that radiated the store as everyone struggled to finish their shopping and find the best possible deals on everything she wasn't even shopping for gifts this was a gift to herself she had waited months for designer chenille sweater to go on sale then she was ready to fight the ninth circle of hell to get it usually a trip like this would take ten minutes instead it had taken several hours to even get to the entrance of the store people hovered around the metal gate to the poor retail workers struggled to open it she could see the fear in their eyes and she for them me tried to hang back but the crowd surged around her when they saw someone who looked like a manager step towards the door it was a false alarm arm but they pushed forward anyway elbows came towards her face she did her best to duck away from them but one swung straight into her eye the person behind her pushed into her other started pushing from the sides the gate hadn't even opened yet as it started to rise people began to duck under the opening the rest of the crowd devolved into chaos mia was shoved from all sides she tried to keep her feet steady but her balanced never been great to begin with she fell into the person in front of her but two of them tumble to the ground MIA felt pressure on her feet then her back then her arms desperate shoppers were stepping right over her she tried to stand but someone's foot pushed down again she covered her head with her hands and prayed for it all to be over more feed pounded across her body she felt the gentle sure of someone trying to step on her head before they changed directions mia curled up into a ball shaking slowly but footsteps began to read indeed there was enough clearance for her stand up dark bruises for blooming hunter arms she was sure there were several matching ones on her legs and torso oh it hurt when she breathed mia staggered into the store like a Zombie praying that our beloved sweater wasn't sold out there was still one left in her size she looked left then right then plucked Iraq and healthy close to chest lost child she headed for the checkout the cashier smiled at her in sympathy they both agreed that the holidays brought out the worst in people mia paid for her sweater and headed out of the store into the chaos of the mall parking lot she stepped onto the sidewalk only to be nearly flattened via White Suv with the Rudolph the red nosed reindeer knows an Antler is affixed to it she threw herself backward nearly slipping on the black ice the parking lot this just was interior day but she had this winter and that's what mattered she took a deep breath and continue forward she wanted to be home with their cheesy made for TV Christmas movies like yesterday she passed several Honda fits she walked the rose but none of them belonged to her finally she spotted the familiar worn out presidential campaign sticker on the back bumper the card was already on me a check your pockets her keys were still there maybe someone else had the same sticker but there was it didn't the back that had come from backing up to close to her mother's planters it was her car head to be she approached I slowly ahead poked up over the rear seats panic started to set in she hadn't taken anyone to the store today way as MIA headed towards her car she got a better look at the person's bad short gray curls me tap on the back seat window in elderly woman stared up at her deep lines carved into her face she didn't look confused instead she looked at ease content happy to be in the back of a stranger's car me did her best to explain I mean why this wasn't where she was supposed to be but the woman who gave her name as Dolores politely refused to

Dozens Of Nonnative Marine Species Have Invaded The Galapagos Islands

"Cornish. The Galapagos islands are like a biological arc in the eastern Pacific Ocean. There giant tortoises and swimming iguanas and numerous creatures found nowhere else is one of the world's most protected places. But scientists have discovered that dozens of exotic species have invaded the Galapagos underwater NPR's Christopher Joyce reports on this unexpected finding marine biologists James Carlton remembers when he first got to thinking that the Galapagos islands may not be as pristine as people thought on my first visit to the Galapagos collected some samples from both bottom barnacles sponges and other hitchhikers that was nineteen eighty-seven Carlton didn't know if those creatures he found were native or not so four years ago he and a team of scientists decided to return and take a closer. Look, we didn't know quite what to do. Expect what they did know was that on land. There were lots of invasive species species that are not native to the islands, but in the surrounding ocean. Scientists only knew of five invaders everything else presumably was native when Carlton's team looked underwater. However, they found a hoard of invaders and now we have fifty three which is a rather stunning increase marine biologist. Gregory Ruiz says they found exotic species on pilings docks and mangrove roots. They hung plastic plates underwater in all sorts of alien invertebrates latched onto them at the Smithsonian environmental research center in Maryland, where he works Ruiz shows me, the invasions lab, researchers here track invasive species around the world, this is a organism that we've found in the Galapagos tuna could also known as a sea squirt a tiny tube-like animal.

Just go to wicks dot com. That's w. i. x. dot com. And create your professional website today. So if you're like me, you probably use the ways app all the time religiously to navigate your way through traffic and find the best route home. So consider me a little surprise that the CEO of the company recently said that the ways app that we all know and love will be very, very different in the coming years and taking on a whole new meaning. Let me fill you in on just what's going on with ways, and it's ambitious plans to connect the hundred million writers into carpool passengers on today's episode of talking tech. I'm Jefferson Graham with USA today so ways the app we use for navigation now wants to be the place for carpoolers to connect. Here's the exact quote from Nome Barden the CEO of the company quote. When you think about ways of few years from now, you will think about ways as the mobility platform that gets you to work, not only the platform that tells. As you which way to go unquote. So ways now has a tab in the app to connect carpoolers in California, Texas, Washington, state, Illinois, Nevada in Israel. You sign up putting your daily commute time and your location, and then a wait to hear from somebody else that might be going in the same direction for your efforts. You get to charge rent in the car for the ride fifty, four cents a mile, and you find your customers from ways IRS like you who live nearby. Now, this is not to be confused with carpooling efforts from ride hailing companies, lift lifting Uber with them, the lowest price fair is a shared ride, and the savings are usually pretty substantial a lot more than fifty four cents a mile though. What I like about carpooling with Lifton Uber is that drivers had to sign up to participate. They probably have a clean car. And for the most part, it's not a scary experience. But bringing a random stranger into your car, someone you met online is akin to picking up a hitchhiker. I guess the only difference is that you have their information available to you from within the app and us, you know where they live. I signed up this week for the carpool service. In hopes. Someone picks me up on the offer. My work commute is five miles, so I don't expect to get rich on the two dollars and fifty cents that I might pick up. No, I just want to report to you on the experience ways hopes it can make a real impact with this initiative. Get more cars off the road. We've seen how successful carpool lanes and cities have been at that. So no, that ways has quite the uphill battle here listeners. What do you think? Would you sign up for the car pool service?

New York City, North Korea and Kim Jong UN discussed on The Brian Lehrer Show

"Of questions These families will have closure So Laura for you as a North, Korea specialist in your government as what were you thinking and feeling if, you saw that last night So I think all of us hope that those remains are in fact the remains of our fallen servicemembers and there is nothing more important in terms of being true to the commitment. Of those who make the ultimate sacrifice for our country and their, families to bring them home and to give him a final resting place and so if these remains, are in fact of US service members it's an incredibly important and welcome development both for these families to be able, to get, some closure but also in terms, of seeing the kind of step from? The North Koreans that you know should? Should, happen really regardless anyways we're saying if these actual remains are you skeptical about this whole thing do I hear this in your. Voice well we have had reasons there have been instances in the, past where the North Koreans have returned remains for one purpose or another That ended up not being remains that they said. They were, or in fact in some cases weren't even human and so I think one of the things that's going to. Happen with these remains now there has not been a process by US, forensic experts to begin to determine who these remains belong to you that process will take quite some time I think it's incredibly important that we do we do that and of course they're going to do their utmost to identify the individual service members. If that's if that's who they are but I think it is, important to recognize that you know very they we need to see that validation the last thing I, would note is of course there were a number of countries that fought in the war was a UN mission and, so you, know there there is a possibility, that these are remains of other countries? Service members who fought alongside us there? As, well but we we need to sort of see what comes of that and Jamie just briefly for you as an Iran specialist When you worked in the Bush, administration should Trump talk to Hani. Like he talked to Kim Jong UN and produced at least this result however however hazy, it is no I I'm skeptical of President Trump's approach to authoritarians whether it's Kim Jong UN in North Korea. Or the the mall is in Iran. And I fear that he's making some significant. Mistakes and how he's approaching both countries at the end of the day these are rogue regimes that do not share our interests that are. Using things like the remains of fallen American heroes and kidnapped, Americans, in, both cases as well to try. To barter for better political relationships are economic gain and that's just something where you need to be fundamentally skeptical of and and treat. Very carefully Jamie fly Laura, Rosenberger from the German Marshall fund of the United States thank, you so much for giving us this time today. We really, appreciate your thoughts thanks for having us thanks a lot.
