"This country. And so it was really remarkable to spend time with them really amazing people who forage lives here were leaders in the asylum community. And wanted to stay, wanted to be here. And. Israel's loss is very much going to be Canada's gain. And one of the mornings of reporting I spent with TTM at hane, this couple who really felt very distraught by their treatment by the Israeli authorities, but very beloved and very connected to the Jewish Israelis. They got to know in Tel Aviv. And speaking of Tel Aviv, and is it worth it is it not worth it? They live in a small apartment in south Tel Aviv, not the most beautiful area, but they love the city they love the cafes. They loved. They loved the sun, the love the weather. And watching their daughters. Moving to Toronto. And to the snow, right? But watching them pack their last bags, the girls with their names, their tic names. It spelled out in Hebrew. And Hebrew necklaces, and packing their pink winter coats. And here they were off as their father told me he said, you know, I'm heartbroken to leave all of our friends in our connections here, but we can't have a future here. And now we'll be able to give our daughters a future. And to watch them bundle into their cars with Israeli Jews that they've become friends with and eritreans who are not going anywhere. Was very moving, all sorts of moment in mass, sort of a story of migration. Writ large. And then I was walking along a few blocks later and seeing Eritrean fathers with their kids on their shoulders, and then the whole mass of almost every Walt driver and Tel Aviv seemed to be Eritrean. And looking at these men, riding their bicycles, you know, delivering lunches and breakfasts around the city. It's very expensive city. They're also kind of going in circles. They're stuck. They're not going to be able to leave, you know? Or maybe they will eventually. But it's a very interesting thing to watch and to watch the incredible love and cohesion between of these Jewish Israelis who have become volunteers and become active and see the human rights abuse of not being able to move on with these people in this crazy state of limbo. Allison, what is your brother country? So golder golder golder, not the ice cream. Don't get me wrong. I'm very happy that a girl from Milwaukee rose to be Israel's prime minister, and I think her history and accomplishments are impressive if you leave out the matter of the on kip war. It's nice that she intrigued the world and that there is book after play after documentary about here, and it's super cool that Helen Mirren is playing her in a new film and looks just like her in costume. It's a little bit weirder that Barbra Streisand is planning a competing movie starring Shira hospital at least your house is an actual Israeli woman on her Helen Mirren. But is she really the only historic female role model that Israel has to offer? Every narrative you come across here focuses on men and there are a lot of impressive women around here who are lost to history. And that brings me to the reason why I spent an afternoon in Jerusalem, walking the length of street, soaking wet. I was spending Shabbat at my mother in laws. I could have stayed home warm and dry with a book. But no. Friend of the podcast, Rachel nyman, who lives a few blocks away on ha palmach street, told me about the intriguing tour going on right in the neighborhood called gebora alha palmar. Heroines on her palmar. Now Harper Mark street to people who don't hang out in Jerusalem is this main thoroughfare in the kiryat shmoo neighborhood. It's also sort of in Mojave. It's also sort of an old catalon that straddles neighborhoods. It was a crucial battle in the 1948 war took place and so all this names around there are very militaristic koshe cat Iman, neatly, et cetera. So the neighborhood association there has come up with a project over the past few years they call aviva haviva and attiva, celebrating women connected to their neighborhood, putting up art in their honor and special signs and plaques to create what they call, quote, new interest in the past, and its stories. But what intrigued me is the decision to focus on stories of women, because, as I said, that doesn't come along every day here. Now, they're using women of palmar loosely women on palmar, heroines on palmar, not heroines of the palmar. They didn't all live on her palmar street and they weren't all in the palmar, the pre state militia. Now, the driving force, the guy who led our tour was the sweet, sweet guy named itamar farhi. He is full time a clerk. He works at the finance ministry, and it seems he's some kind of feminist historian in his spare time. He said that his motivation in initiating this project was that it bothered him that little girls in Israel had no one to look up to except, of course, golda. So I'll very quickly because there are a few of them run through the stops and the women in the tour and lucky you, you all get to stay dry when you hear about them. The tour started on one end of hypoxic at the Islamic museum, a neighborhood landmark. So the first woman discussed with Vera salomons, who lived from 1888 to 1969, she was a wealthy English Jew, a philanthropist, and she established the Islamic museum in memory of her beloved professor Leon Ari Meyer of the Hebrew university for the study of Islamic art, and she wanted it to be a center for approach month between Jews and Arabs in Israel. Noah, which one of your students is going to name a museum after you? Then we continued a few blocks down to a cafe where a nativa Ben yehuda in 1928 to 2011 used to hang out just below her Palma apartment. She was an actual commander in the palmach and then later became one of the cool kids of Israeli culture, a radio broadcaster, author and co compiler of a dictionary of Hebrew slang that I'm sure no one knows by heart. She lived on the fourth floor of a building on hallmark street until her dying day and the small cafe is now named in her honor. Then came a trio of stops honoring women who are actual national heroines, people know their names in a way that I'm ambivalent about. One was Sarah aronson because write off her mark is nearly street. She was a spy for Neely in the early 1900s, born in yakov. She's following a short stay in turkey on her train journey home. She was shocked by the scenes of Armenian Genocide and then joined the nearly underground against the Turks on behalf of the British, she was captured and tortured by the Turks and committed suicide refusing to reveal the names of her compatriots in the underground. So she's considered a big heroine as is the person who park on Neely street is named after javi barres. She was a daring member of the palmar who kind of was a parachute who dropped behind German enemy lines and managed to save the lives of hundreds of Jews before she was shot. And the third member of the trio, I was less familiar with, Noah, maybe you're not, so Hara levitov, nope, she's 1927 to 1948 a fighter in the pall Mach, and the first pilot first female pilot in the Australian air force. Now she is apparently admired by girls and mothers who at the time named their daughters after her while zohara became a popular name. She had this heartbreaking love story with this guy named schulek her fiance, schmuck fell in the war and then days after she was killed in a tragic plane crash in the valley of the cross. My ambivalence is like, do you really have to die a tragic death in order to be an Israeli heroin? Sometimes it feels that way or have a son who died a tragic death. Anyway, so then the tour continues in front of a bait yakov school. And so itamar speaks about Sarah schneier, who wasn't really Israeli. She was an ultra orthodox educator and teacher yiddish authoress and playwright in Eastern Europe and it was a revolutionary in the world of ultra orthodox female education setting up the now famous beitia cove girls schools and seminars. Anyway, fascinating, right? Yeah. There are all these signs and plaques about all these women so you can do a self tour if you're in the neighborhood and into Mars not touring people around. I really like how this initiative grew from the ground up far he started it on his own. This last to cut, it was beefed up in an effort in COVID to try to find interesting things that could happen on Shabbat in Jerusalem for people like from Tel Aviv who are trying to entice them to stay in a hotel in Jerusalem. And so we're no tourists to stay in the hotels. It got funded by all these different organizations. They put up art and all the different stops. When you're trying to get Israelis to come to Jerusalem, we've already been to the Western Wall and mount hurts so you have to get creative. And it bends over backwards in a very Shabbat observant city where so much is shut down on a Saturday it's something to do. You're just walking and talking and you're nobody's breaking chabad in any way. Anyway, I wasn't a classic tourist because I had to spend the Shabbat there anyway with my in laws. But it was a fun way to spend the afternoon and it was definitely worth getting wet for. You're here. So it's Hanukkah this week, obviously, and then Tel Aviv, when it's Hanukkah, is a little like the music that they play in cafes, mostly you don't pay attention, but now and then you notice it, maybe you find yourself singing along. And when you do, you realize that you've half been hearing the music the whole time. In our House, we meet up in the evenings, the kids have mostly been coming over from wherever they are. And the counter is covered with a lifetime of minores and Susan, the girl and I like candles. The boy mostly watches from the side. And we sing the prayers and then the songs and then there are gifts outside our House, hit you at odd times and in surprising ways. The day before yesterday, I called our pizza place on decent golf to order takeaway and in the background there was a din and the woman says, wait, wait, wait. I can't hear you. They're lighting candles here. You'll have to call back, click. And then I went running yesterday and there was a QR code stapled to a palm tree on the boulevard and I scanned it and all at once I was in the middle of a treasure hunt. My phone said, may we let my shirt, Hanukkah? Yes. Al malo recite sahale at Hanukkah is the same. It could move Virginia smooth. The Shan have excellent. You found the second riddle. According to the song, I have a haruki. What is the whisper about when you're done, go to independence park and look for an orange QR code? The answer, by the way, is about a single small picture of oil. By the way, I totally rocked the answer to all the questions that I found once I started looking for them. They were totally cinchy. There is not a 7 year old in Tel Aviv that can beat me at that particular quiz. In my office last night while I was trying to prepare for the podcast, the sound of kids singing hanukah songs in our buildings courtyard, there was some kind of party that sound broke up my concentration so insistently that eventually I just gave in and got a glass of wine and stayed out on the roof and listened for a while. In the public square or in public squares, you also feel Hanukkah city hall, jiggered the color of the lights to turn the facade of the building into a giant manor in each night with another candle. In clock, tower square in Jaffa, there is a fabulous oversized manora facing the big Christmas tree in the traffic circle covered in lights. And then down at the Jaffa port, they've built a huge interactive kanuka that kids can climb into and climb on. One night I was coming home from shabu, the Japanese gift store in basil square. When I saw a crowd looking up at a two story hanuka menora that was set up by the Tel Aviv habad or lava, it was architectural. It was huge and fancy and behind it. There was a cherry picker in front of it. There was a man in a dark overcoat and a beard holding a mic, a rabbi, I gathered. And he was explaining how each night you add a candle as a symbol of how we can only go up in holiness, and when he was done with his little homily, he pointed to a man with a three year old boy on his shoulders and said, do you want to like the candles and when he said he did, the rabbi hoisted the father and son onto the cherry picker, giving them a lighted torch that danced in the wind without going out and then the three of them father son and rabbi went up, up, up, up on the cherry picker. And the man put his little boy's hand on the bottom of the torch and read the prayers and the crowd clapped and everyone saying, how Nero talal and mouse tour. And I stayed for a bit and when I left, I found myself walking right behind a different man and his boy maybe 8 or maybe ten year old boy, all of us heading toward decent golf, the boy said they were nice those men, the man said they were nice, those men, but they were nice for a purpose. They wanted to draw you closer to religion, but we are secular. The boy said, but Hanukkah is a religious holiday and the man said, I don't see it that way. And for the next block or so as I walked close behind them, the two talked about theology and national identity until we all walked past the golda and the two decided to continue their discussion over ice cream. And that brings us to the end of our show. Thanks to a meet askenazi our genius researcher conciliatory and scholar, not in residence, thanks to a Thai shalem. Our station manager without whom there'd be none of this, thanks so much. She believe my favorite band from kibbutz gaba. They give us the music of a start and the end of our show. Thank you, Allison. Thank you, Natalie. Thank you, Deena. And we'd like to thank all of our Patreon supporters for your generosity and support. It keeps the shield going. It keeps the station going. It keeps us moved and grateful and in your debt. And we'd like to thank you for taking the time to listen. And I should like us on Facebook and drop us a line. We're going to answer, then go to Apple podcasts and give us a 5 star review. Maybe one of the begins with this. The miracle of Hanukkah is that sanctified oil expected to last for only one day. Instead, stretched to 8 in a similar way, we all expect the promised podcast to last for just one hour and yet Verily it goes on for an hour and 20 minutes. Sometimes even longer. Trying your patience maybe, but also causing you to ponder the astonishing. Some would say miraculous fact that they still think you'll be listening here at the end of the show. That any way you want. But before you do that, remember that this past week on November 27th, the last Saturday in November, we marked international buy nothing day, tucked in between Black Friday and cyber Monday, so stipulated by the international NGO adbusters as a day devoted to quote unquote anti consumerism as one learns from adbusters dot org quote a larger and larger portion of humanity is born with an innate compulsion, a sort of all consuming addiction, the dopamine rush of not having but wanting and then acquiring stuff is today more powerful and more commonly and deeply embedded than ever before. At the same time, malaise has never been more common among the world's richest nations, the withdrawals experienced by those addicted to consumption can be severe and crippling like a chemical dependence the release of the high comes with frequent indulgence at an ever greater price. What satisfies one day is not half enough for the next toys gadgets and trifles treats and turn ons ideologies and philosophies and attitudes, ten steps programs, 12 step programs and self help programs, tie ins add ons and extras, bombs and ointments, drugs and therapies all can be brought for a price, all our consumer solutions to consumers problems, malaise has never been more common, the withdrawal experience by those addicted can be severe and crippling. And it goes on like this for quite some time. And it is just possible that buy nothing day is my favorite day of the entire year. Around the world, it's marked by credit card cut up celebrations and zombie walks at local malls and rural Mart protests in which, quote, participants silently steer their shopping carts around a shopping mall or store in a long conga line without putting anything in the carts or actually making any purchases. All of which is fantastic. And I love international by nothing they could be. Like I said, my favorite day of the year because it's on Shabbat when I don't buy anything anyway, which allows me to feel virtuous without actually changing my life in any way whatsoever. A win win scenario if ever there was one but the whole time, I was enjoying international buy nothing day this year. I knew that just like that, like the dopamine rush, you get when you buy that dustbuster on Amazon on cyber Monday. And now with free shipping to Israel because how you ever lived so long without a dust buster, it's impossible to even imagine. And it's so cheap it would be irresponsible not to buy it. Anyway, it'll be gone. Poof, not to return for a whole nother year, not so the promised podcast. We will be next week and every week, reminding you that it's not just money that can be squandered through mind this consumption, but it's also possible if you're not careful to thoughtlessly waste your valuable time and attention. On this, the promised podcast..
"independence park" Discussed on Men In Blazers
"Serenading the U.S. performance were really if you read the articles. Out there to humiliate Tata Martinez who was surely on borrowed time. And the challenge is, how do you weigh U.S. progress? Against those factors and to me, I love Friday night. It was thrilling. I just adored the joy. I want this, you know, this is an injected into my veins moment, but we won't know how good the U.S. were Friday night and how bad truly bad Mexico were for a while until we play real teams. You know, this ultimately, the worst case is this could ultimately turn out to be a bit like watching united beating Tottenham Hotspur three nail a win that felt bloody great. Tuck Manchester United back, but ultimately proved nothing other than the Tottenham were so bloody poor in that moment. I was damaged by the first half, the passing of both teams was so poor, a good team would have punished the U.S. for that passing for those turnovers for, you know, on the counter, they could the game could have been put away a clinical Italy, for instance, would have put the game away in south 45 minutes. But to rebound from it and win. Gave us a lovely sav experiences and I do a hope a yearn that this is something we can gradually build off real progress is always slow, slow and steady game to game. But as you're hinting, David, there is something just genuinely amazing about U.S. men's football fandom. It's like a tank of water that slops from side to side. We are either will beat us who have no peer or where total trash and the coach must be fired now. There is never any in between divo. And somehow, as fans we have to find that in between and summon that patience with this young team and just savor the significance of the win. And the growth. Yeah, I daresay we might learn a lot more tomorrow, you know, when Canada play Mexico at home, Canada were right in there, one of the stories of this conqueror. Amazing. Amazing. By the way, not just playing Mexican, the playmaker scale in the snow in Edmonton. Before 48,000 fans going mad for it that that is the game I can't wait to watch. Tomorrow night, Canada, that is incredible. That makes me joyful about the future of Concacaf the addition of extra teams who are going to push us force us challenge us new rivalries. That will award the signature win. The most significant win may have been Panama three goals in an 8 minute span later coming back from two nil down. Amazing Concacaf football. Okay, Honduras in an ultimately a three two win. And they've created a 5 point gap between themselves in fourth place and Costa Rica and 5th, really the peloton has fallen way behind the breaking pack here. It's really these four teams trying to squeeze themselves into the strain off places. And we are now in first place on goal difference, and I do as I said, I hope this is the signature winner. I hope we can build off it. I hope we can move into the next phase because the next phase is consistency, David, the World Cup is just a year and a week away. A year and a week away and all the distractions on and off the field will have to weather between now and they're like Barcelona are interested in Christian Pulisic, according to sport magazine, built a reporting arsenal once Tyler Adams childhood Arsenal fan Tyler Adams, and we need to stay focused. You know, I would just say it will be a darkness for the United States now to overlook Jamaica, tomorrow night, let's go into independence park and do the business. Certainly, the rematch that's going to come later in the qualifying is now going to be absolutely fascinating, mostly for just eye gouging enthusiasts. And for Mexican T-shirt customizers who make bucks. By the way, there's something sad about the next game at the azteca. It's gonna be the last U.S. Mexico World Cup qualifying game for a long, bloody time. Because both teams are hosting 2026, we will not see the like of Cincinnati will not see the Lake of the azteca again until 2030 qualifying. By which time football will please God look very, very different in this nation. Hopefully we won't have to worry, for instance, about where we host the game, the whole nation will be football mad by them. We will have to find out one of these slightly at this point. I don't know how to freeze it, but politically awful, let's play it in a city with a small Latino footprint moment, Stevie. I do hope that the future of the game in this country will flourish and consign the search for the right place to play Mexico to a footnoted history. Hopefully you won't be pushed back due to some kind of substandard college football game on ESPN. We will. We will. A quick reminder that you will be back with a very special Spotify green room tomorrow after the Jamaica game as soon as it wraps up at around 7 p.m. in other World Cup qualifying news. Many teams starting to punch their tickets to Qatar 2022, including two massive results in UEFA World Cup qualifying. A sensational weekend of World Cup qualifying football England switched to a back three to accentuate the strengths of their full back play and swept aside. A paw poor Albania 5 nil. With all the jollies of a Harry Kane hat trick, like old times, and today, the team needs just a point to qualify and will then reportedly have a meeting to work out how to express themselves on the Qatar human right issues. And I love this Conor Cody quote, we are not robots. We are human. We see the news make us proud lads. In the stunner of the round. And that don't mean pathetic shoulder into Dave's face in the Sweden Spain game was Croatia, grabbing an automatic birth shocking mother Russia, thanks to a delicious 81st minute comedy own goal by kadra of in the sloshing mud and rain, handing the creations. They want their home when the vaulted them over their guests to the top of the standings. At the last and Serbia, coming from behind to drop Portugal to one, thanks to a 90th minute wonder winner by Alexander Mitra bitch few things motivate that man more than the opportunity to have a fight in a big tournament with the world watching. And Ronaldo had to walk off fighting back the tears as his Portugal humiliated plummeting into the playoffs and the Portuguese manager later accusing his players being overrun by quote fair and anxiety and Dave all hail Scotland, who clinched a World Cup playoff birth courtesy of a two no win in Moldova, the Concacaf of Europe, I would love love, love Scotland, they've to be in this World Cup more than I can say. Skill and for Billy Gilmore. Little Billy Gilmore in his development, that would be so wonderful to see him at a World Cup roger. I don't know how we'll deal with the sunburn in Qatar. They don't make sunscreen with a high enough SPF to deal with Billy Gilmore in that part of the world. Okay, rode, we're going to be back to catch up on the latest news from the Premier League right after a quick word from the GFPs at policy genius. Okay, rods, the holidays can be a hectic time. So why not relieve.

"And before she gets to the chorus that holds the answer, several kids yell at the same time. Which is Hebrew for hyacinth, which because of the song is one of the most recognizable flowers here. And I am so charmed by the kids and by the teacher who had the flash of brilliant to see that the shelves outside the am p.m. are also really essentially a little botany exhibit, and there's the song about the akin tone. And it all seems so beautiful to me. And then the teacher picks up a violet or a pansy, and she says, children, this is called amnon and Tamar. Do you know why? Because in the tanakh and the Bible, there's a story about Tamar, the daughter of king David, and I'm thinking, okay, how exactly do you tell nursery school kids, the story of I'm known forcing himself on his sister Tamar? What exactly happens now? And just at that moment, the girl in the pink shirt, she lets go of the hand of the girl in the overalls. And she forms her hands into two little fists, and she says, no, die, die far, bony condemn far new enough enough already. Let's move on already, although the word need kadem means more precisely. Let us make progress. And she could have said bones, let's go already. Or bonas far, let's move already, but instead, she said, Bonita, and the teacher may be relieved that being saved from having to explain why a flower is named after a brother in the Bible who rapes his sister, she says, yala, yela diem Bonita, yala kids. Let's make progress already. In the second they are around the corner and on their way, I guess to independence park. And that brings us to the end of our show, thanks to our meet ashkenazi our genius researcher conciliatory and scholar not in residence. Thanks to he Tai Shelley, our station manager without whom there would be none of this. Thanks to us she believed my favorite band from kibbutz gaba. They give us a music at the start in the end of our show. Thank you, Allison, and thank you, Natalie. We'd like to thank all of our Patreon supporters for your generosity and support.

Don't you owe it to your children to listen to this show instead of all those other gas guzzling carbon spewing podcasts dot dot dot finish that any way you want. But before you do that, remember that yesterday as we record on November 3rd, we marked international cliche day. So stipulated by Pennsylvania entrepreneurs, Thomas and Ruth Roy, who hold the trademark for the name international cliche day to celebrate the many turns of phrase that have through enthusiastic overuse become too familiar with the more fundamental aim as the Roy's right of just trying to get people to lighten up a little. Which is funny if you think about it. And I love international cliche day because it gives me a chance to bite the bullet and open a can of whoop ass on tired cliches, cutting to the quick and fighting the good fight with fire in my belly going full tilt, taking the gloves off without idle chit chat, damn the torpedoes, nose to the grindstone balls to the wall, leaving no stone unturned never saying never. And reading the riot act until I win one for the gipper with one hand tied behind my back because shit happens like there's no tomorrow until the cows come home and far be it from me to let sleeping dogs lie. And I knew I just knew that almost as fast as international cliche they came. It would be gone. So fast, how fast you asked faster than a speeding bullet faster than grease lightning. So fast that even if you don't snooze, you still lose, and I knew that international cliche they would be gone, but not forgotten. Here today gone tomorrow, not so the promised podcast. We will be back for you next week and every week. Reminding you that board to tears is not always a cliche. It is sometimes just a coldly clinical description of a sadly common state of affairs on this, the promised.

"Coming in now at all. You know yeah and I think that this applies to all four of us like none of our friends have lobbying power. None of our friends are like you know have some a guy in DC with like four thousand dollars suit. That's like oh I need. You need to be sure to count these guys in and speak for yourself lake. You know like we. Just we hang out with creative types and creative tights. I think are the ones that are going to be the last ones on the food chain if you lack absolutely I mean you also asked me about predictions. Obviously money's thing and I think we don't talk about it a lot but one thing I'm nervous about not necessarily in Philadelphia but elsewhere in the country is civil unrest MC depending on how bad this gets stories. I did this week. Was I paid a visit to a gun shop. That's where we're going next. Yeah well great segue perfect. I'll make you seem intelligent at an. Ask Me my one of my closest friends. I've known since we were like thirteen. He lives up in tycoon sexy whistleblowing and he was sending me screen shots. He said he was going to get bullets when he couldn't get bullets. 'cause the twenty thirty people deep in this northeast. Philly gun shop and he showed me pictures from the outside read different various times of the day it was still the same the same. It's still twenty people in line outside but a different twenty people every time. He's on the pitcher now. Part of the reason for definitely they're busy part of the reason for that is they're only letting to four people in the store at its. I'm so creates a line outside. The other thing is that background. Checks are taking quite a bit longer than normal Because the background check system is on overload. But certainly you the the Owner of the store that I went to in northeast Philly. He said business was booming to quote him he said. Ar Fifteen or flying off the shelves. Jesus Christ any said that You know they've had far more. Asian Americans buying weapons than they've ever seen before I mean. I don't remember the statistics he gave me. And it certainly wasn't a scientific one but he said it was just insane. The number of Asian Americans were seeing you know and he referenced. Nine eleven Saying how he said look how horrible what happened to the seven eleven owners. The gas deal after nine eleven and he kind of likened it to that which is just weird to me because I live in a different world and I don't even think about China when I think about this year. Like what are you? You'RE GONNA you're gonNA like shoot someone my year. Ye I I got you for bringing that virus like mainly that'll show you like what but then you have the president of the country and calling at the Chinese flu so I think somebody needs to talk to him and say you need to stop doing that. That's a good way to start. I think they're heading there. I think they're saying it but he's just not listening you saw. They had written corona virus on his speech and he scratched it out in Rhode. Chinese flew himself so You know he's obviously instigating fear With the use of language but You know the thing that was interesting about that story to me. Victor is like I'm a guy who I hate the NRA. And I'm very anti gone Even though I grew up in EH GROVE IN HOUSE. That had a gun. But I I hate the lobby right like I support the Second Amendment but I hate the lobby but I had to admit that guy sounded like a decent do like the owner of the gun store like I was ready to hate him and I read it and I was like I kinda liked this guy like everything. He said he wasn't a lot of people when they think about guns. They have this image in their heads. Of what those people are all like well just as in anything else. Generalizing really doesn't work. And you know. He seems like a guy his family's been in the gun business for over seventy years They've had that shop for seventy years. You know his mother and father opened it and he's he's doing business and I think he is genuinely concerned about what's going to happen but he's certainly doesn't believe that he has to shut down Believes that they have every right to be open. I'm a little concerned about what's going to happen if the city goes there and says you need to close what's going to happen if there's a standoff between a gun a gun store an city a find it interesting that that like the gun. Stores aren't on the top of the list of things that need to close like that's like not even something that's been brought up yet correct. Yeah I mean I asked the city about it and they confirmed that it needs to close down now to the gun store owner again today. The city doesn't really make a list of things that have to close as much as they make a list of things that can stay open. People have questions about like. Oh what about this? What about that now? There was nothing on the city's general list of it suggests that a gun store could stay open so md due-diligence. I asked the city and they said no gun. Stores have to close the gun. Owner was surprised to hear that. Now that was I guess. Two days ago that I was in the gun store and two days ago that I published that story I talked to the gun store owner today and he said that he still has not heard from the city. You know I think a lot of a lot of it's that neither of the city government or state government or federal government wants to call in the national guard or wants to like a lot of this are hoping that social pressure is going to close a lot of things that they don't WanNa have to force close. Do you feel like that's the case. Well I think that that is the case to some extent but a gun store is a little bit different because evolves the second amendment issues. So I think it's one thing when I did the story about the bars being open. I got a lot of hate mental about that and people imploring me to name the bars which I do in the article. And we had an internal discussion about this at the magazine And that's one thing and people were very upset. The those bars were open now. Granted I did you know here from a handful of people that I never met before. Who were like dude? I need a drink. Tell me where this bar is creamy. You come on it but but you know so. Public opinion was against those bars being open. And you know it continues to be a gun store. Yeah there are a lot of people among us who think this is ridiculous. Gun store opened at a time like this but I've a lot of friends who think it's exactly the time when a gun right ran. Who was taking pictures? He was telling me he's like I'm begging. You Fly Gun Lee gone by gone so there are a segment of population. Who feel like. That's a necessity right now. Will Not my worry is that there's a lot of people that are buying guns but they don't know how to shoot them or clean immoral. You know what I mean by going this week. If someone tries to steal your fucking beer tomorrow like shooting yourself right right. Yeah the gopher us Situates yeah exactly. So what is it would've been like at the magazine. Victor like you guys you know. You're typically covering the hottest new restaurants you're generally coverings you know whatever you know the show that aired nets shooting in Philly this months and now all of a sudden you've been hit with you know like all of us have just this thing out of the blue just a right hook. What are the conversations like in the newsroom? Sure so to your original point absolutely we do a lot of lifestyle stuff we also right seven thousand word features on generational poverty. But I get your point you know. It is definitely a jab johnny. Yeah Yeah it's just it's just the truth but I know that we do a lot of lifestyle things as well now. Excuse me recently. In terms of our online coverage we did shift from the idea of chasing the breaking news of the day to spending more time doing fewer stories but stories that had more impact So just some more serious well-thought out more research stories that instead of people producing story a day or story every two days or every three days some people were producing a story a week You know but these were longer and more deeply research then so that was in January. Then this happened and now we find ourselves in a situation like wow you know. We need to be corona virus all the time so we're really not doing anything that's unrelated to the krona buyers with the exception of our website property which is real estate we do. I believe one post today because people love to look at these absolutely enormous gorgeous houses for sale the clicks and we can tell. I mean they're always popular and we weren't sure if people would want to see this right now but I mean you know what once we guillotine billionaires hours Victor. We want to know what they look like now. I think there's a I mean those posts that ninety nine percent of the people that look at those posts in general are verbs right like they're not actually in the market for three point. Five MILLION DOLLAR HOUSE IN. Malvern Leach but we do need I mean I mean look at what people are netflixing right now there. Most of them are watching outbreak. There watching things that are a bit of escapism and I would just say that are real. Estate Post for instance are sort of the same thing a little bit of voyeurism and escapism now It's interesting because we were kind of wondering well what happens to our wedding channel right. We have a very very enthusiastic readership of our wedding channel which is sort of another brand of Philly MAG And we were like. Well what do we do with weddings? Well turns out you have all these people who are. You have wet. Big Wedding scheduled. They cancelled them in the. I think yesterday the one couple in about fifteen minutes planned a Ceremony in Independence Park and it looked absolutely lovely. Were running a bunch of stories of people on how they're changing their wedding plans and they're actually really interesting Right I mean they're not. I'm not in the wedding market so I don't typically read our wedding content but this content I am reading because it's about how the corona virus is affecting real people at this incredibly important time in their lives so And then you look at the food channel that we have which is extremely popular. You're like what do you do with that? All the restaurants are closed. Well they're doing a lot of things that are talking. You know there was a great story.

"So this is these are some of the things that people do their activities that do this guy does not enjoy that he thinks no one enjoys and so here's one that we had a couple of just a few days ago. Number number six on his list of supposedly fun activities that nobody actually enjoys our parades, which I totally agree with don't understand parades at all. Don't get me wrong. I'm not saying parades are exclusively a warm weather activity. But I'm saying though is screw the parade. Maybe the Saint Patrick's Day parade is a good time. But I suspect it's only because people are to hammer to realize how terribly boring boring. It is to watch grown men walk around in skirts while cops and firemen goosestep down Fifth Avenue. That's just one example. There are countless cities and towns throughout the great land that use the return of warm weather as an excuse to put on a parade. I put that word in quotes because this is usually amounts to watching pimple faced band geeks from your high school drum and fife corps, slaughter, whatever. Twenty year old pop. Tune their teacher had stuck in their head for the start of the semester or even worse. Get a bunch of conceited jerks mistakenly believing that they're so important that people are lining the streets to catch a glimpse of them waving from the backseat of convertible. If you're stuck in traffic behind someone driving three miles per hour and waving at someone on the sidewalk you'd be on your smartphone. Googling the legal ramifications of smashing that person's rear window out with a tire Jesus guys a little angry. Now watching Dr someone now watch now watching someone drive at the speed of a snail and listening to crappy marching band music merits, fighting your way through a crowd just to get a nice spot to stand on thirty concrete and bacon the scorching hot sun. No, you still hate it. So parades are the first thing he goes after here. Okay. Another thing that everybody says they enjoy the, but they don't movies in the park. Now, I gotta say I enjoy movies in the park. That's that's something that I have to say that. I do enjoy. Well, I mean, I enjoy movies in general, but. My accident. I used to go to movies in the park every Tuesday during the summer when they will do at grant park. Didn't even matter what the movie was. And we saw some great movies out there. But people love the word free, the promise of enjoying something free of charge that you normally have to pay for is a surefire way to get people to leave their homes after years of searching that is all I can come up with to explain the appeal of movies in the park. You don't know what I'm talking about scan your local newspaper events section without fail. You'll see that some local organizations hosting series of movies in the park there. Exactly what they sound like people gather in a park sit on the dirty and inevitably wet ground in watch a five year old movie with the lowest definition screen that you could possibly be that money can possibly this guy is really angry. It should go without saying that any standard rules of going behavior. Fly right out the window when you're watching that movie in the great outdoors. If you talk in the movie theater, you're a pariah. But that dynamic is reverse when you're watching a free movie in the park, you can even hear a movie above the chaotic din of a park full of people Yam about their pointless concerns. So so so so there you go he hates movie in the park because people are talking and hanging out, and he does describe it in a rather. You know, I don't know unfair way Vicki ever go to movies in the park, man. I was trying to think I think I did once. It wasn't in Chicago. But I don't think I enjoyed it much. Now, kind of for the same reason for the same reasons because there's too much stuff going on. Yeah. What are you? Did you ever gonna movies in the park? Now, never never I used to we used to go. Like, I said we used to we used to go to grant park. Now, I will say this. It depends. Sometimes it depends on the park. And that's what I was gonna say. It seems weird to say that. But I think it really does depend on the park because on Tuesday nights in grant park, most of the time, it was very quiet during the movie, you could actually people were very respectful of it. And but like if you go to like a Chicago public park. For like what for what they're talking because because it movies in the park, the official Chicago movie in the park at grant park. They actually had film projector and screen and do people just sit on the ground or you bring blankets or lawn chairs and stuff like that. I didn't like was sitting on the ground. But like if you go to Maggie Daley park, the Pritzker pavilion, you've got. Right. Huge screen, right? I've watched a couple there and had a really good time. Yeah. No. That's there's also people sitting on the grass as well. Bring blankets. Right, right. But I will say this though. But if you go to like, a local like your local park, like I live near independence park, it's not very far from from from my apartment, and so I- ventured out to sea ventured out to sea Toy Story three because I love that movie. And so I walked down to the park, and I got in there. And that was a not pleasant because the people independence park were behaving much differently than the people at grant park on those Tuesday. Tuesday nights. And it was like, you know, a lot of the same people would go on those Tuesday nights because people really loved it. And they usually had like a really great lineup. But when you go to the movies in the park that are getting Chicago park district movies in the park there. Usually what this guy says they're usually shown on DVD, you know, low resolution, there's usually kids running around. There's a lot of people talking moving around. It's very distracting. And also like, you know, the the street noise is also distracting like you can hear cars driving and honking and things like that. So yeah, I guess I can kind of understand it. But overall I enjoy going to movies in the park. Yeah. So then he goes on to say that what we were just talking about people talking is still only a mile mild irritant compared to the throngs of children that irresponsible parents will allow to run roughshod over every inch of the park. It's not enough that these children have destroyed their parents dreams. This guy is funny. But now they've been dispatched ruin your night out as well. And they will stop nothing to do. It. Look, I'm not I'm I going to an actual theater is quite possibly the most fiscally irresponsible decision a person can make. That's what next flicks and the internet or four also you don't have to worry about mosquitos, an aunts and garbage and stuff like that. So he just doesn't like movies in the park. All right. We got more and the other topic here that we're that. We're talking about is what things does it seem like everybody else really really likes. And you don't you're in the minority on it. Everybody seems to enjoy these things in every category any category. What are things that people really love that you don't and we'll finish up with Adam. Todd Brown's list of fun activities that nobody nobody enjoys read at break here for the news, which is up next.
