Binance-WazirX Tensions Escalate
"We're gonna toss it straight to Jen. I guess for an update on this binance was her ex spat over in India. What's going on? Well, the saga continues Zach, so according to a blog post published by binance, was Rx can no longer use binance's wallet services. The post says that the Indian exchange has made false and misleading statements about binance's control over Walter X user assets, and because of this, the company has a toll today to remove funds from accounts that they used for wazir X operations. Buzzer X tweeted, I think two or three hours ago that they've initiated the process of transferring assets to multisig wallets, which they expect to be fully completed within the next few hours. Well, I'm going to toss this off to you. We've been chatting about this saga on the show for the last couple of weeks. Finally, it looks like it's come to a head. What did you make of this blog post this morning? Yeah, I've kind of waiting for this, right? We've been following this story in the hash for quite a while. And it's important, right? Binance has a lot of different exchanges built on top of it, that's something that we've fall along with the story and learned about along the way. And then was her ex, it's part of this basket of crypto exchanges in India that has been impact not only by a downturn in crypto markets, but also by the Indian government moving against crypto exchanges pretty heavily. So we had like a few tax laws that went into operation last year, some anti money laundering things as well. It hasn't been favorable to be a crypto entrepreneur in India the last 12 to 18 months because they've been basically thrown under the bus in a lot of instances. And this is tough for the wazir X entrepreneurs and builders of that exchange. It chose to build on binance in at the end of the day. Binance is the heavy gorilla in the room, right? And they're going to start smashing other people if they can. We saw that in a somewhat similar instance with FTX. FTX and binance were going at each other and binance one that, I mean, that's one way to interpret the whole saga.
Newly Discovered Asteroid Passes Close to Earth
"Asteroid is passing as close as 2200 miles above earth, our past, it passed last night. 2200 miles above the earth's surface in a size of a delivery truck. It is. And now they're saying if it had got any closer it'd burn up and you'd have some small meteorites that kind of thing. Sure. This is somewhere at 11. As it goes and it's looking to say, but yo, I've been watching and listening and I think you and I got into this the other day about the fact that the city of Atlanta's last Friday we discussed city Atlantis may be in the actually the Sahara Desert. But we talked about these craters that we see on the earth. You know, there's these deep craters Antarctica has one. There's one in the Indian Ocean. You know, you see them in some of the desert, you say it out west. Okay, here's your question. Did you know that most geologists I think this is the way and if I'm wrong here folks, I know you can't incorrectly. But it's a massive black fault volcanic area around yellow. I mean, like thousands of miles kind of thing around Yellowstone. Have you ever heard of that? I've never heard of that, but that doesn't surprise me in any way whatsoever. I don't think I guess the way I see it is nothing surprises me about what they say about the earth prior to us being here. Right. Like they always, you know, they say like what this part of the country was connected to this part of the South America was attached to this part of whatever I believe all of it. Because I know nothing.

Pfizer's Paxlovid not included in China's national insurance
"Pfizer's paxil is not included in China's national insurance. Healthcare authorities have declined to include Pfizer's COVID-19 treatment drug in a national reimbursement list that would have allowed patients to get it at a cheaper price throughout the country, saying it was too expensive. The oral medicine has been widely sought after in China, since the country began phasing out its zero COVID restrictions, and a surge of infections started sweeping through the nation, although it's supposed to be prescribed by medics that hasn't stopped people scrambling to purchase it through any means at their disposal, including local media reports, buying generic Indian versions of the drug through the Internet.

Dogecoin DOGE Is Now 4th Most Popular Cryptocurrency On BitPay
"2 p.m. Sunday January 8th, 2023. Dogecoin doge is now fourth most popular cryptocurrency on BitPay. Dogecoin, a dog themed mean crypto that appears to enjoy strong ties with tick billionaire and Twitter owner Elon Musk appears to be struggling to gain enough ground for a major upward swing. After peaking at 0.0749 on January 5th, doge fell victim to a price retracement that pulled it all the way down to 0.0705 the following day. Since then the altcoin launched a mini rally to recoup some of its losses, enabling it to notch a 2.4 increase in value over the last 7 days. According to trekking from Coen dzeko, at the time of writing, Dogecoin is changing hands at 0.0719 and despite its early struggles this year, it is able to strongly keep its place as the 8th largest cryptocurrency courtesy of its market cap, which currently stands at 9.90 billion. Dogecoin still among the more popular crypto assets, although still far from rewarding its faithful holders with significant profit through a massive price height, doge continues to establish itself as among the well-known digital currencies. Just recently bid pay, one of the world's leading crypto payments processors revealed that the mean token is the fourth most popular transactional currency in its platform. Related reading Ethereum classic ETC price balloons to nearly 30 in last 7 days source bit paid, according to data shared by the company, in December 2022, Dogecoin accounted for ten of all transactions it processed almost doubling the 6 tally it had in June.

Months before his acquisition of the company, Musk floated the idea of having Dogecoin accepted as a payment for Twitter's blue services. Featured image crypto globe
Native American Campaign Calls for Boycott of 'Avatar' Sequel
"Disney's in trouble. Oh, this is a great story. You know, you can't help but love stories like this. So the latest, what is it? The sequel or the prequel to Avatar. So this Avatar 2 is out. And apparently it's not going well. As a matter of fact, indigenous groups and Native American groups are calling for a boycott, they say that the director of Avatar 2 has actually culturally appropriated. And they are calling for a full boycott they say, Avatar 2 is a racist film. Well, I hate to break it to you folks. But Avatar 2, there made up. It's not real. This is a make believe world. It's not like they've got native them. It's not like they had the Indians and the indigenous people out there. No, this is a make believe world. Now when I first read this, grace baker, I'm again, I saw the first avatar, and I'm like, okay, okay, I guess it was okay. It wasn't like, wow. The first avatar, it was like a cultural revolution. I remember people in high school were like, I've seen the movie 20 times. I think I watched it one time. Nobody called it a racist film back then. A lot's changed over the past. Everyone just said it was a visual spectacle, and it's so beautiful, the prettiest movie they've ever seen. And these blue people. Basically. But not Smurfs. Well, and you say that is the thing. I thought when I first saw this headline, I thought, oh my gosh, the Smurfs feel like they've been culturally appropriated. Fair enough, fair enough. That's what I thought. Well, smurfette and papa Smurf and horny Smurf and whatever Smurfs I don't know. It's not a long time. Yeah, so anyway, I had no idea. So Disney now is in a conundrum because I don't know what to do. Yeah, they can't please everybody, clearly.
James Cameron's 'Avatar' Is Accused of "cultural Appropriation"
"The lengths, the woke army, is going to these days. It's so annoying. And more so because all it takes is one loudmouth on Twitter and then more and more people catch on in a way we go. One person on Twitter said, Cameron is accused of stealing themes, history and imagery from Native American and indigenous cultures for his latest blockbuster. The sequel to the 2009 hit avatar is about colonizers who attempt to take the land of native people. In Cameron's version, humans have been forced off earth due to its dwindling resources. Much like the first flick, the movie has a predominantly all white cast playing the fictional na'vi aliens. And Zoe Saldana is not in this movie. And I love during the first one, didn't love the movie, but I liked watching Zoe Saldana. I like her. She's good. Some Native American influencers named UA big gay, I think I'm saying it right. BE GAY is really speaking out against the new avatar. Do not want avatar. The way of the water, he's also the chair of indigenous pride LA. See, these are the kind of guys who have nothing to do all year. They've been plotting and waiting for the new avatar to come out. And now they have something to do. Now they have an agenda. And he's telling people, join natives and other indigenous groups around the world and boycotting his horrible and racist film. Brigade also said that indigenous cultures were appropriated a harmful manner to satisfy a white man's savior complex. He also referred to the 2010 interview that the Cameron gave to The Guardian in which he revealed that the he went to Brazil and visited the jingu people of the Amazon, a trip that made him reflect on the experiences of North American Indians and ultimately inspired him to make the first Avatar film. And after release of that film in 2009, the term blueface became shorthand in alleging the avatar universes appropriation and the implication there was that the franchises representation of the na'vi as Native Americans carried the same racist undertones associated with blackface or yellow face and I don't like Cameron, but at least he said the right thing he fired back. Listen, avatars and science fiction retelling of the history of North and South America in the early colonial period. It's very pointedly made reference to the colonial period in the Americas with all its conflicts and bloodshed between the military aggressors from Europe and the indigenous peoples. Europe equals earth, the Native Americans are the na'vi, it's not meant to be subtle.
$1.7M in Bitcoin Tied to QuadrigaCX Reawakens After Years of Dormancy
"All right, so here's a story about quadra CX. The founder died under mysterious circumstances. It was kind of a scam at some point. Many of the funds that were locked on quadriga were inaccessible. It's been a protracted bankruptcy proceeding up in Canada and after years of a lot of these funds being mistakenly sent to a wallet that was not controlled by EY, which was administering the bankruptcy after years of silence from these wallets. A few days ago, a hundred Bitcoin moved from them. Suggesting that someone else controls these wallets and they aren't the cold wallets as initially advertised by EY when they made this pronouncement that oopsie, they sent it to these wallets, we don't control. So someone controls these wallets, they're sending Bitcoin. It's going through mixers. This is like $1.6 million. This is not nothing. And at the very least, it's a reminder of the crazy story of quadriga, CX, wills, history, corner, hit it. Before I get going before I get going, shout to Nicolas day, who's been covering this for coin desk for quite some time. Shout out to Nick day. Gori's reporting quadri CX, probably the best out there. The history part of this is what happened to Gerald cotton. Supposedly he died, I believe in 2019 from Crohn's disease in India. He was running the exchange in Canada, there became some questions about the financial solvency of the place. Then everyone was looking into the financials itself and things were just like messed up. There was no controls in place. There was no good accounting, and ten looks like FTX all over again. But this was back in 2019, right? For a lot less money, it was about $200 million went missing thousands of Canadian customers and Gerald Colton just disappeared and supposedly died in India from Crohn's disease, even going so far as having his body exhumed from Indian and being confirmed by Indian officials. But as you said, Zack, the intrigue here is that this Bitcoin address supposedly could only be moved by Gerald cotton himself. So is he alive or is he not alive and someone else has the ability to control these Bitcoin wallets? That is the question here and yes, it's some perfect intrigue going into Christmas and I love this because we need a distraction from everything else that is happening in crypto. We needed this right now.
Marco Polo's Garrett Ziegler Talks Hunter Biden's Laptop and Crimes
"We're talking about some very, very important and horrifying stuff. Marco Polo is this nonprofit research group that has pulled together the information found on the Hunter Biden laptop. They've published just now report on the Biden laptop. And this gives you chapter and verse on everything we're talking about. And the reason we're talking about this and Garrett, we were just talking about this idea that this is as high level crime as it gets. This is a level of corruption that is monstrous. So it's when you're talking about organized crime, we're talking about organized crime, but imagine if the Gambino family was working with the Chinese, you know, to undercut Americans. You say, well, the mob doesn't do that. We're talking about actors on the world stage who are operating in corruption and criminal activity that literally affects the whole world. That's why you've done this deep dive. Well, it's interesting you mentioned that Gambino is because they actually do make an appearance in this report. There is 1° of separation between the Gambino crime family and the bidens and it's a very particular involves a family called the galanis family. And the head honcho, John colonis, who was sentenced by who is prosecuted by Rudy Giuliani in the 80s. He was sentenced to the longest sentence ever at that time for a white collar criminal. His son Jason was business partners with hunter in an Indian Bond fraud scheme. There's a man in New York City right now his name's Devon archer. You probably know of him. Long time, Biden, family partner. And he was just sentenced in February of 2022 to a year and a day in prison for this bond fraud scheme. Everybody in the scheme was indicted and sentenced besides Hunter Biden.
Dinesh Reveals Details About the 'Gang of Three'
"The biggest story in the country right now is the Twitter files and it's really interesting that this is a story that the mainstream media is not covering for the most part pretending it doesn't exist. New York Times, of course, did do an article on the kind of the strange politics of Elon Musk, but they're not covering the files themselves. And let's review. We're talking about four troves of data, three of them have already been on court. The fourth is coming soon. So the first wave, the first file, was the censorship of the Hunter Biden story. And there was a long thread on that and it devastatingly exposed the way in which Twitter, but now this by implication applies to other platforms as well, suppress the story, not because it was false, but because it was true. And there was FBI participated in the suppression, so there are a lot of bad actors here. And that Twitter, of course, the bad actors were Jack Dorsey, agarwal, who replaced him as the CEO. And this creepy character who I'll talk about a little bit more in the next segment, you'll Roth. 35 years old, the guy out at right out of swarthmore, and these guys are making decisions for the whole country. What people can see what they can talk about, they're deciding whether to ban congressman, they're deciding whether Trump should be banned. It's really scary when you think back about the kind of power that these strange characters exercise. Now there's some debate Elon Musk I think seems to think that Jack Dorsey is not the main culprit. In fact, he once said that Jack has a quote P or heart. And I think if this is true, then Jack is a little bit like, well, there's a character industrial ski that is called the idiot title, by the way, of when it does to exchange books. And by idiot does, he doesn't mean he's a dummy. It means he's an innocent. He's doesn't know how the world functions. So it could be that Jack Dorsey is an idiot in that sense and being manipulated by the diabolical troika of Parag agarwal Vijay to Asian Indians and this creepy all Roth character.
John Zmirak Sees 'Nationalism' As a Form of Zionism
"John's mirek, let's continue. Yeah, I was saying that I used to think we could have appropriate the term Christian nationalist and use it. And the reason I said that was, to me, nationalism, I look at it in the way that Europe has only does in his great book, the virtue of nationalism. Where he looks at nationalism in the light of Zionism, a very healthy movement. Italian nationalism in the 19th century. Irish nationalism, the 20th century. Nationalism in that sense is a cultural group that has not had autonomy or representation that has been oppressed seeking to have its own nation state. And in that sense, nationalism is a healthy golden mean between there are only three ways to government mankind. Tribalism where people gather by their ethnic group, their race, their tribe, and fight against other tribes, like the North American Indians and the Europeans during the dark ages. There's tribalism, and then at the other extreme, there's imperialism or globalism. Where you have an ideology that you try to impose theoretically on the entire world if you can't. That's what Napoleon did. That's what Hitler did. That's what Stalin and Mao tried to do to impose a single global regime on the world. It's what George Soros and Klaus Schwab and the council on foreign relations and the World Economic Forum in the UN and Pope Francis are all trying to do now. They're trying to impose a global regime of micromanagement in the name of climate science and sustainability and it is a power grab and it is nothing more than that.
Elon Musk Is Causing a Huge Stir at Twitter
"Musk is causing a huge stir because of what he's doing at Twitter. And one of the things he's doing is the Twitter cleanup. And the Twitter cleanup as it turns out goes much deeper than we. And perhaps even than Elon Musk's suspected. He started out by booting out pyro, agarwal, the CEO of Twitter. And also vijaya gade to Asian Indians, by the way, she was the chief legal officer. They were clearly part of the problem. But at the beginning, Elon Musk seemed to think that Jack, Jack Dorsey, the founder of Twitter, was a good guy. In fact, at one point, Elon Musk tweeted out Jack has a pure heart. And then Elon didn't dig deeper into Twitter, at least not initially. But when he released the original Twitter files, and these were the files about the Hunter Biden suppression, the suppression of the laptop, the suppression of the Biden crime racket, the effort to protect Biden before the election and even to some degree after the election. Elon Musk realized is astonishment that these Twitter files had been handed over to a guy who's been at Twitter, his name is James baker, he's formerly an FBI guy, and what James baker was doing was altering these files apparently in order to protect the FBI. So even the information being released in a kind of full disclosure to the public was being itself edited. By James baker. And so Elon Musk steps in fires James baker and excellent move. By the way, he needs to go ahead and fire the Perkins coie law firm, which was hired under the old regime to represent Twitter. So Musk has realizing that you have to clean this place up. It is rat infested and the rats are a kind of everywhere.

The Historical Truth of Thanksgiving
"All right, everybody. I hope you had a good Thanksgiving, I did. But I didn't miss any over the lockdowns. I never say over COVID, the lockdowns were the issue. So it was wonderful, but not a relief to finally have it again. I had a Thanksgiving with family, my wife's family, my family is in the east, and I don't think they would have gotten together, at least in 2020. But her family is more conservative and would get together, so we were together Thanksgiving 2020, 2021, and now 2022. We believe in Thanksgiving, we believe that a day of thanks. Commemorating the founding of this country. The people who are basically ignorant of history, all America was founded on violence. And tell me what country was not. What country was not founded on violence. People moved to other places, people don't want them to move there, and they fight. That is the history of the world. Hopefully it is coming to an end. And people will honor a boundaries in frontiers, but that is true everywhere. Did Indian tribes not fight other Indian tribes? Did white people? Did Europeans come to a continent of pacifists? The issue is hatred of America, the issue was in historical truth.
Scott Powell and Eric Reflect on the Pilgrim-Wampanoag Peace Treaty
"Whenever we talk about the Indians, of course, it's complicated because there's no such thing as the Indians. You have all of these Native American tribes, many of whom were, you know, genuinely bloodthirsty savages, and many of whom were absolutely wonderful and kind and gentle. So when we're talking about the wampanoags and it is interesting to me that it so happened that it was possible for them to have this wonderful beginning. Tell us a little bit more about that. But it is really, it's just astonishing when you talk about 50 50 year treaty with massasoit that was that squanto helped to broker, obviously they never would have been able to get a foothold these pilgrims and these English souls on American soil if it hadn't been for that. That's very true. It's true. You know, the hardship that they endured, the backstory of the pilgrims is equally fascinating. I mean, they were on ships that almost sank twice. First of all, they fled Great Britain because they were persecuted. You know, the leaders of the pilgrims went to jail for their beliefs. And anyway, they were released, and they made a second attempt to escape England to go to Holland, which was more tolerant, more religiously tolerant. They lived there for ten years, meanwhile, the Jamestown colony was successful, and they heard about that. And they realized that we would be better off going to the new world. And they viewed the new world in her brave terms. This is what's so remarkable about the pilgrims. William Bradford wrote the first 20 pages of his narrative of pilgrim's progress in Hebrew. He was a Christian, and yet he could write in Hebrew, and so he did.
"indians" Discussed on The Indicator from Planet Money
"This is the indicator from planet money. I'm Stacy van Smith. And it has been a rough week in world news. But today, we're going to have a bit of a break. And we're going to look at the American jobs market because it's jobs Friday. It is jobs Friday. February's numbers are 678,000. That means 678,000 new people got hired last month, which is a solid speed up from January. I don't know what do you say darion? Air horn. If this is not an aha moment, I don't know what it is. Celebrate the wins while we have them. It's true. We gotta celebrate the wins. And every month we talk about that big jobs number, the number of jobs added to the economy. But on jobs Friday, the bureau of labor statistics, the BLS, releases a bunch of other measures about how the labor market is doing. Things like unemployment and wages. And you can look at some of the numbers by ethnicity and by race. But there has been one major category that you couldn't see by itself every month. The monthly employment rates for people who are American Indian or Alaska native, until just this year. Today on the show, we speak with an expert on American Indian and Alaska native data. Someone who got out ahead of the bureau of labor statistics and said, you know what? If you're not going to publish these numbers, we will do it ourselves. How he did it and what he thinks of this historic move by the BLS after the break. This message comes from NPR sponsor epson, just in time for the holidays is the epson eco tank cartridge free printer.

This printer stores a lot of ink in its large tank, so you can just fill and chill, all season long. Now that's Mary. Learn more at epson dot com slash NPR. To learn more about American Indian and Alaskan native jobs numbers, we called up Casey lozar. Casey loza, thank you so much for joining the indicator. And can I just get you to introduce yourself? Test a score heart true netted to which will its quest XS sailors score say good morning. It's great to be with you today. My name is Casey lozar and I'm an enrolled member of the confederate solution kootenai tribes here in Montana and I'm vice president at the Minneapolis fed and director of the center for Indian country development. Casey loza was born on the flathead Indian reservation. This reservation stretches through mountains, forests, towns, and part of a huge Lake. It was here that as a kid, Casey found his first passion. At that point, I wanted to be a golf pro. A Gopher. Yep, career trajectory is certainly changed paths. I've already lessons from golf that you can apply in your work now. Yeah, no, the numbers. That is like perfect indicator advice. It's so true. But as Casey started to enter the world of economics, he noticed that the numbers for American Indians like him were often missing. Oftentimes in the country is discussed as asterisk nation. So an asterisk often in datasets where there isn't sufficient data to incorporate American Indian Alaska natives, oftentimes we're also considered the invisible minority. And this estrus in reports creates real problems. So take the government's American rescue plan last year, which gave a lot of money to different groups all across America to tired us over the recession. And you could imagine that knowing where in the country the most jobs were lost would be really helpful for directing where that funding might make the most difference. Without data, it's like training for a golf tournament without recording any of your scores. If you're not in the numbers, often you're forgotten. Casey says there are a lot of reasons for the missing data for those asterisks. One of them is that many American Indians and Alaska natives live in rural areas and might not have access to reliable Wi-Fi to reply to online surveys. Also, some may move around to different extended family homes, and that could make repeat surveying really hard. But maybe the biggest reason for these estrus is what's called a small sample size. Now there are about 10 million American Indian and Alaska native people in the U.S., but it's a small part of the American population overall. So like in the survey that is used on jobs Friday out of 60,000 surveyed households, you might only get like a hundred people actually unemployed in that demographic category. And that means that numbers like unemployment rates can be volatile. They can bounce up and down every month, just have randomness. Like one month, you might just happen to survey people in an era with fewer jobs, just out of chance. Not because the trend was actually getting worse. The bureau of labor statistics said for this reason, it did not include a monthly measure of American Indian and Alaskan natives in their database, just the annual numbers. These respondents, they said, make up only 1% of the labor force in the U.S.. And this was really frustrating for Casey. The jobs report is one of the most important sources of information about our economy and about our labor market. So not having sufficient data of American Indian Alaska natives, it handcuffs policymakers and tribal leaders to understand right now whereas their labor market and Casey use this particular frustration very well because that Minneapolis fed center for Indian country development has a leadership council, a group of native experts and leaders across the country. They provide a lot of guidance on the data that exists and important research projects or unanswered questions and Indian country that would be meaningful to tribal communities. Giving indigenous groups more of a say in what data is collected and how that data is used is a step towards what's sometimes called data sovereignty. And the message case he was hearing was that American Indian and Alaska native job market statistics needed to be more visible. Casey and his team at the fed knew that the government did collect this data. It was available deep inside the databases. And they just needed to take it out and make some adjustments and present it in a way that was more accessible to the general public. So Casey and his team turned the government's raw monthly data into three month averages. This instantly boosted the sample sizes by three, and then they made a simple interactive web page. A dashboard, a graphs that anyone could look at to see American Indian and Alaskan native labor force participation, employment, and unemployment. They launched it last year. It's a beautiful little dashboard. It is beautiful. We love that you're calling it beautiful. Yeah, we're quite proud of it. Certainly this has been helpful as we've been closely following the economic recovery of our tribal communities. And, like in the rest of America, there has been a huge labor market recovery in tribal communities. In the middle of 2020, nearly one in 5 American Indians or Alaska natives in the job market were unemployed. Now it's down to one in 13. Just over 7%. That is a huge recovery. But it is still double the unemployment rate of the general U.S. population. What are the kind of drivers of that rough doubling of unemployment rates compared to the general population? Well, I think there's a number of factors. The job opportunities are probably fewer in many of our tribal communities. The other factor is when you think about sort of the effects of the pandemic, a lot of American Indian Alaska native workers are concentrated in the service sector. And the service sector certainly was hit, particularly hard in the pandemic. And the story varies a lot, depending on where in the country you're looking. The urban population tends to be more employed, for instance, than the rural population. And of course, it varies across reservations. So, thanks to Casey's website, you can break down.

"Their growth as a civilization. We we you but it's not the fault of crops as well because obviously urine kiss apples that even at its other episode. Lou north america but brewing apple requires better technique it required grafting because you grew it and that technique in from us from europe so when came from europe americans were would enough to adopted but they do not develop those things in time. Obviously because of the delayed said starts and obviously we also discussed because of the lack of environmental factors the lack of blocks that were available in that area. I don't know who's forty could say and do know. I don't think it's about as much as as about Just the luck of the draw up stance and this is the conversation that people have about the rate when like conservatives won't be something they'll be like. Oh if we're talking about privilege how long back do we have to like mandela conversations of like reparations for colonialism and on that people like to say that our generation did not really do disciples our ancestors so why should be before it. And this and that. It's not really about that so conversational privilege. It comes to the point the point. It's time to make is that. You have to recognize that because of the circumstances that you were born that you had certain privileges that certain other people around the world did not and that is what makes you different from them. That is what kind of puts an obligation on you as just make us a of the world to help out like Not take not exploited that factors. That's just where the conversation is about. So i guess there's a lesson to be learned from this whole thing of happens on indians it's that. Yes that our defenses o'connell circumstance of that gigi to certain people growing slower than on other people but it does not mean that you should take advantage of that or it does not mean that you are necessarily better than that and it goes the opposite way as that. Uganda's blame the circumstance that okay. You grew up in space. Which have these facilities. And you wouldn't a backlog drop so you blame your life you blame the privilege of others and you don't succeed yet. There are henry's. Obviously you have to work in an inner given world that we live today. It's getting sorta right that i understand. I acknowledge the privilege of even uncle in bingham meal itself. Today's world so can to say is a privilege and especially not automaticity like art so we have to acknowledge in which place. Vr the ladder and help body other but even if we lack and if even if like if others look down upon us we have to know that i fought and rise up the ladder in some other because not only defined initially. I guess and after that it's up to you how you deal with it how you Make off on everything but remained the because as work progresses you grow and let's say if you survive this if you survived this discrimination your kids were not and that is a in at once. And hopefully we'll have this utopian society star trek utopian society where everyone is equal in one way or the other. I mean that's the whole as long as we don't make the same mistakes again so on that note. I think it's a base to in the past when people listening to us. Thank you for doing so and we. I hope you answered the questions that why was at fault as it and why was it the other one of other shortcomings and maybe like a new way to look at apple's origins question up of lifeless in their day but i think that's the next to end this. Thank you everyone for this episode acceptable. I understand how animals helped in farming domestication. All of that. i'm not going to let the. Are they going to be dogs. Thank you guys catching. The knicks of bank crave. Hank you listening to this episode. Follow us on social media. And if you want to be part of the next episode. Live long and prosper..

"Had this affinity with dogs komo very or and we've been talking about do i on food production as early as What you also goes on to bisque liftoff about wipe up new guinean rival. Missile american civilizations did not because Lies lead included. You know The lack of protein bodine rich lands as well as lodging of animals. That would behind. It could be you know so it would be up on getting used to eating mice spiders dogs and other animals. It's kind of experienced the southeast asian cuisine i guess innovate and then you had on chill fact that the plant big enough scenes they couldn't really hard could domesticate and also that the food production wasn't really able to complete here. Hunter gal mcdonnell back to some hunter hunting. Guidry of which also hindered like the size of civilization. You would say hundred percent. Obviously as you had mentioned earlier that new guinea because of its lack of viable crops lack of cannibalism denim. Then so. that's a huge thing. Yeah you own kind so the terrific and one is basically says all of this and then the initial question that he was that you know what what was the reason what what was it. The humans who could not get describes the apples. I think the first question that was humans who were dumb enough that they could not find discounts. Where you know he's like easy would be edible. He gives some examples and nordstrom his lately that regarding when he was studied when he when he was there in you as we learn question and he was he was doing besides then he came across this people who were failing and if the mushroom and the blocks mushrooms and jared diamond being smart as he is he said this be poisonous. Most american great poisonous obese began for. Let's eat this. we don't have. He was traveling with they. Were farmers hunter-gatherers because obviously they had not developed a native new guineans. He mentioned the stone edna biology. Mitch's this kind of this kind of thing that you have innately right. Venue menu evolve in a certain area. As hunter-gatherers like that that you are even distinguished with certain white species though certain types of debates appliance. Better than some other people because you kind of grown up with them you've you've had this knowledge asteroid who almost are genetically. So it's interesting. You mentioned that it was easy for the like those people. It was easy for the people of the forest. Riper just Edible yeah exactly and even after that these are not appoint crops from the early eras and people who got us crops. There were smart enough together. Which would would for them so they knew how to distinguish between one computer. And it's very carbon tonight. It's it's it's intuitive to understand that because they'd say that i'm looking at an i bill no locations in my locality appropriate. My city firefighter. Then pull up the most basic example of this. If you know which street would award so you don't get diarrhea with a is this something that develops eighteen hundred. That is what is there. This one language he mentioned started all the studies that these studies already. Show that such walking encyclopedias of naturalistic with individual names. In the local language for as many as a thousand on animals and with detailed knowledge of those species biological characteristics distribution and potentials as people became increasingly dependent domesticated plants and animals. The study showed knowledge gradually loses. Its value and become sliced until one arrives at a martin. Supermarket saw parts could not distinguish wild grass from and it's so do rising by lets me at one hundred percent get hardly distinguish between okay. Let's not reveal secrets. Medicis embarrassing stop yet but yeah. I can't distinguish hunts that easily and these guys because they were so in tuned with nature and it was a point of the bible. The most example of this. You can still hear from next pilot grandparents who Kind of lived in this kind of environment. you can still hear stories from them regarding What we call cutting methods of solving things like if you if you get injured put lake mustard. No seed honored organic. It must have been something something to holly obviously and all this. Yeah exactly so these kinds of What do we call home home. Every is basically in a way for by that. As you mentioned that. You know after giving a of kim who papa new guinea and. He mentioned that vitamin certain limitations. That because there was no filed crops out of this monday night under survived to other crops which dinner provide them enough ample food and education. They relied on aquatic lifestyle. And you know hi-fi dire so and other funding that he went into that. I liked was of iraq's about though uninterrupted flow civilizations european to that when being here they bind off aboard the aboriginal australians from this donation for the martin jetta diamond says if you look at the patterns of those people during that time We can see that these people in another maybe shoot ause. Years would've naturally arrived at this kind of civilization this martin civilization by them which first of all for the first reason. I find very interesting. You if you remember when weeded out independence day which we were talking about how some people think that the colonization of india by the british was actually a good thing. These people will see that your drains or these things which they bought or abolishment of these things but yet going yes so first of all. If you look at jared diamond's arabs logic and if you look at it and we can see that. Is that the flexible. Our societies and all that all night societies would have reached a dead vision. Okla morton would eventually given enough time as lil as the funniest fact was just thinking about australia in the euro. Five thousand five hundred of reaching the modern stage which is when like that was just funny to me personally because when meeting the washington distant future the most we can think of this one hundred two hundred years and this guy is just thousands and thousands of years and we can even conceive of like the euro five thousand an eighty through man. That's that's actually thousand five hundred years from now and be complete sense. If nature to scores anything's gajah develop. These people would eventually come to this. Modern era and opposite mix i seven million years and it comes back to the first or the second episode of a question where we said that evolved from africa. It moves and okay. Let's start with modern humans. It first game in the fertile crescent area european regions and then it migrated and that was aruna molina two yours and forty thousand years ago. The mayor australia and lemon two thousand years ago to america's so obviously these areas have a head start in terms of human evolution of human development. So if you give enough time to all the regions and if they are detached bill indi-individually up in the mortar nights. But then again. It's our discussion. Which maybe it's not part of the but we can have that what is good. You can live in salinas. You can end up organically which may take more time less time. Depending on how the naturally sources are there or you can be a more global. I start which was considered wars. That are people being greedy. But then you develop. Plus i mean. Yeah it's something to think about and it's not like people who were hunter-gatherers resisted for me. That was also one more thing that you mentioned that plants are not available. Or then you know. Let's stick with hunter gatherer again. This yellow so that did not work. So if let's say european admitted australian they bought into rob's even the native americans adopted that because they knew this was a more sensible approach and even saw that in south america. Right where you see. Some of the new different people south america handshake with europeans and got their horses and the new weapons in order beside by so they knew what was best survival and they're adopting so you cannot blame indians or native americans for being the super who could develop plants because as that timing was yeah the bio environment around them that That fundamentally of slower.

"Gruden suppose you want to the first reason. Was that the weather also for restaurant. It was situated geographically in such that. It would it could allow what the perfect weather for rob struggles for actual annually in late and not depend too much on. Reinforce it could grow from lick downwards on the reverse and it would have the whatever it needed to basically sustain large agricultural food-producing society and obviously dry summers of because the climate isn't a swab evolved. That way right. That did not involved much water much rainfall and so therefore less human intervention and that is how the climate editor prevented a lot of benefits will lead into the second wanted. That tie was dark. It was highly abundant. Now obviously what just except he gives that you know one of these countries in the twentieth twenty percents geoscientist. They were analyzing. How many fired glasses out there. That can be able. And obviously there are as mentioned lax so in that case how do we narrow it down to basically only liquid ones which we are attracted to. It's so the sky orissa because seats are fleshy fruits or these other small cat and he followed that fifty. Six of them so fifty. Six while glasses grew across the entire world's which were recruited. The foundations are plants from which are edible. Crops grew now according to analysis for darkness tactics. them let's more than fifty percent off. Vile gases grew photograph into the abundance of itself advantage. Hina ghitis who themselves were so tickle food source of the food i watch killing animals or critically still in all of that and but apart from that you also pick up fruit site and with so many edible plants actually mcclellan. Because luke's you put them and that is how so for more context the last episode. Where there. Let's go for the this. Especially i think in last r. chop nets had gum. These kinds of stuff like even Bodley in on these things these things would sell date. The did not require much air intervention from animals or humans. Basically mitch helping of more or less domesticating them and also growing at larger there seems to be easily obtained and then reminded while donated the on that stuff. Just what jap one of the apartheid years here is that if you have cell pollinating they don't really you did right. So whatever dance that really quiet. The critics tend to have more and more as we grow the crops but if you had you know crops which cross pollinated then they were more tons of mutations which you can relate with what happens with amendments gender but mutations more variety but with glance you cannot afford to do that so your cellphone records and one of the examples of self pollinating or i would say the products of clutch guidelines which we eat on a daily daily life. What i think you ate it today. Morning was bred beat michigan photographic and. Obviously there's one fact of your back. This magic obsolete by mentioning. They were high important as well as start sites or visit balanced right. Because you want to eat food that make you strong and made you feel full. also i got just. That's what the problem was papa. Nobody who had lines that were mistaken after that water really rich so what ended up happening was people would just get big bellies because they were just eve. Gods and northern authority iron. No so you wouldn't really have spent. Just how big belly like my on the other spectrum you could also have crops. They car which basically grew in the new one is america's which are very low content of. So you cannot get good amount of nutrition. There's one leg funny line in this but read. He says that he says about before. Douglas that down in need. I'm anyone's even cd's suggesting an isa ordered distinctive biologic and features of the regions people might have contributed to the potency of its food production package. So what he's trying to says he doesn't know of any Anyone peterson suggesting that the people of the fatigue crescent where i guess innovate distinctive. What better than how people other people around the world which gave them an edge in funding and my mind just went through that cool reason. This note might -nology of the identity of jesus in egypt. You had Jews who were the chosen people then you had guards that mature like egyptians and this and that so it was just kind of funny. Maybe there is a top. We talks to all of this. The latest to move in will get to know what really happened in pow region developed doomed. They get past the main point. Is that of the whole chapter. I it can be summed up in a way Machado diamond basically says that. He's she does not think that though it was the people that were that were the reason for the civilization of food production happen at the time it. It was just like other insect geography of liberty of legs. Because that stuff. Yeah so actually. Let's expand on that same. So we discussed this meter advantages. But on top of that one can really ask this question on the very first point that you said that what lights in the mideast region. I somebody didn't climb. Climate is the most obvious reduction that it supports are being in a more general way but it is obvious that that is not the only area in time it exists there are other places around the world so why is it that for tacos and was chosen and not the other areas. We had australia south africa california. These i made didn't limit but farming did not even develop independently then all borrowed or use up by the farmer so again he mentioned. I just quickly go to these advantages that the most one is the for crescent is basically the largest way didn't media so being the largest obviously has a spokes and given the logic has the largest library so nope it's important to understand that because if an which is very point the climate supported if the plants and will you get so and go plant at one area and that cannot really. What do i say help you feed throughout the right. So let's say that you grow the crop on january you can feed for three months and you haven't even less By because they didn't have necessarily blue like us could store inimitably but there has to be somewhere i did. They have to some december twelve years. They can feed themselves at the society so having very seasons invaded but just the area had them did as well yeah bless. He also mentioned that in mountainous regions the farming game Modem gradual because you would blend along the moncton and would start harvest blanche at the for faster than the ones above until you could harvested different points of figured which allowed them to have a food year and the fourth one to expand the literature but he mentions that i was obliged to go hang so the more domesticated animals. You have it helps you gather blunts so for dacas and was lucky. In that area accord ship be big cow all of that delegated of the furnace and no lead only news adam alleged respected was. It'd be beloved. What's with the earliest. The earliest animals with respected and auxiliary. Don't provide you any estimated in the modern. Let's stick to that experience i need. Let's let's leave. China out outta the virginia if you see gord ship be gout operating media's or full for clothing and all the other factors. They had a dog. I don't foresee. I have not heard about it.

Niran so let me have other things to nestor but did the stuff that is. That's interesting set of things but before we come to that and before we unravel the mystery at bazaar. Indians pusher writer due to the honors. And i know it's a tough job you have to recap the last of basically what book that activator of doing questions about biz house. Relations are awarded glue had different And so we'll talk about different civilizations like papua new guinea south america up all gm redick examples from there and basically examined realized what it was that led to what conditions led to certain people acting in a certain certain civilizations evolving before us another once in this whole version of like five chapters is basically about food production and howard contributed to the rise of civilizations across the world and if it at all and specifically now we're at this chapel called aperture indians not us indians other indians. So basically going to be talking about if it was that food. Production started so late in america's because the apple was at old or the president of american on indian was nice. I would strongly so. I'm gonna come in. Everybody was listening to and was joined us on this episode goalless and the other episodes yet basically be. Somebody's did but it's good so we get more tax it and listen at huskies. I don't mind that and it will give you a holistic experience because you know be basically golic some. Oh you all been mega to where we are now and initially when this chapter the cd's shepherds that is book started from flowerpot. Initial chapters. very win. it was something which was only told us that you know vitamin is important. There was something to predict that that is why one of the very heavy no announcer like big kind of coolest y food correction became such brennan that it still going off like eight thousand years you know and how it replaced hunter-gatherers all around the world and here we basically touch on that new keyboard but mostly what we talk about how it was that certain plant kim comed- domesticated over the course of thousands of years and why those plants in why it was investigator in certain places and not the other foot this chapter specifically the biggest thing is the full question which is funny because when i was eating i looked exactly the for alcoholism false because i had a beard and air out. It's actually it. Actually tracks was Before crescent is more or less covering the same place as jeter. Sulaiman nasdaq on those pieces. Veggies was one which is I don't it's a really big conspiracy or coincidence of work. Actually make sense because i had the exact same so for people who are listening to the area which i don't see the iraq darden taking this names. Interest context makes it feel that what seriously that is where the is imagine district desert. What even intercut math. What is you see. That food was was invented. I discovered the you're right and like edible food farming so you would think that that would have reached more than heights and have crossed one after the other but according to today's news or a new before. Ob these countries are fighting amongst each other. there is more stable government People aren't actors. But that's a different story altogether. So that is one contrast from rhode island in school Civilization obviously started in the indus valley and the ones who domesticated everything of course like obligation does not as you might not mentioned that the focus compass whole are disturbed hazard area and it acts very belt at first you have food production and that is how civilizations double up because this town and things developed civilizations cultures evolving and with that you have your religious religion as well because the established in the previous chapters is one of the of us evolving from hunter gatherer to settling place culturally different shooting each other having classes of people and similarly religion grew according now all that aside type is not really like that of gopher chapter. Today i'll chapters motorboat so didn't he talks about basic staples that were domesticated In the photo christian which happened the earliest and not like he makes tea examples. Basically biggs davison be may well american missing the eastern american media and you have the southeast asia. So what he talks about is dad. Were this ideal. Set of plants and animals like five animals and lake the certain number of crops. That were mistreated. In the for digress. That gave them a significant advantage or like the presence of these plants. Give them an advantage domesticating. These white blinds departmental crops. Which did not happen in those other places because both places had different kinds of plants the corn and all these things and different kinds of animals yes with district context very easy to assume that they're so many plots going across the world. And why was it very difficult for you know astrodome. Stick them in. All of that question is that which will finally answer that wider for and had the moment of crops and invited other areas. You know your australia even africa for that. Matter and california this development dependent there was no independent development of crops. But yeah that as was saying that if the numbers there around to lack wild plant species and more getting discovered as he explored these rainforests more and more but yeah these plant species specifically focusing on that and the only a few thousand so if he assumed that we eat everything. Rosen the nature. It's not true. There is only a very handful amount of things that we eat and we read that it last separate that. Why did by plants because attracted by the fleshy fruit that the plants devoid innovates. Attract us and we have been falling with big the bigger sponsored spotswood motor oil or fibers and things like that and that is what happened. This chapter is more likely side of it came. Why the people of the photon question. Domestic certain types of robson.

Actually and the way that the stand sat is they had these big stands to cover the fans in the shade but because of that uh fans shade interaction the sun the way it set it would cast a big shadow. Like right over the batter's box. You can't see the You can't really see the pitcher like where he's releasing the ball and at this time it's also the deadball era. It's also another name for the dead ball. Era is the blackball era. The ball would just get so dirty and gross that it would just become black. Which is why they called it. The black ball era. It's you know. Obviously these kinds of things are not too hard to think of. Sometimes but ray chapman's in the batter's backs facing carl mays and at the time quo every part. Excuse me at quote. Part of every pitcher's job was to dirty up a new ball the moment it was thrown onto the field by turns. They smeared it with dirt licorice tobacco juice etc in it's deliberately scuffed sandpaper at scarred. Cut even spiked sometimes and the results mishap an earth co in earth colored ball that travels through the air erratically intended to soften in the later innings and as it came over the plate. It's very very hard to see. In any case chapman did not move reflexively when mazed when mazes pitch ended up coming his way the pitch hit chapman in the head fracturing skull and chapman died. The next day will becoming the only player to stain fetal injury from a bought from a bitch to ball the indians who at the time reluctant three way pennant race with the yankees and white sox were announced slowed down by the death of their teammate and rookie joe. Seawall hit three twenty nine after replacing chapman the line. And that's actually really interesting because that year just in baseball it really in generally a really did need a commissioner because they had a player die on the field and they weren't really going anywhere. The players were really disgruntled. And that's a why the black sox scandal happened and that and it happened that year so everything. It felt just kind of came to a boiling point. Which is like one of like the black scandal. I don't think was the entire reason that the and will cover this another episode. But i don't think it's going to be. The entire. Was the entire reason that the commissioner was stated but i do really think that it was part of that and part the ball getting all like muddy and stuff like that they needed rules to really be enacted somebody to delegate kind of things but in september of nineteen twenty. The black sox scandal came to a boil. And with just a few games left in the season cleveland and chicago or were neck and neck for first place at ninety four and ninety five wins respectively. It was ninety nine thousand four hundred fifty four and ninety five and fifty six. The chicago owner suspended eight players and the white sox lost two of their final three series. While cleveland won four in lost to in their final two series. Cleveland finished two games ahead of chicago and three games ahead of the yankees to win. The pennant led by speakers. Three eighty eight hitting jim bagley. Excuse me gym bag bs. Thirty victories in solid performances. From steve o'neill stamp kolevski. Cleveland went onto defeat the brooklyn. Robins five two in the world series for their first title winning four games in a row after the robbins took a two one series lead. A we actually just kinda saw a two zero series lead in the nba finals more nba. Talk on this baseball episode. That's kinda funny for me but The series included three memorable. I all of them in game. Five at cleveland and all of them by cleveland in the first inning rightfielder fielder elmer smith hit the first grand slam in world series history. That's kind of a big deal right there. Then in the fourth inning gym bag be hit the first series home run by pitcher and in the top of the fifth inning. Second baseman bill. Wam gams executed the first and only so far. Unassisted triple play in world series history. In fact the only only series triple play of any kind any performed unassisted. There have been literally one hundred world series since that world series and it has not happened again. That is literally the rarest play in baseball. It only happens one time at like. Baseball is a game of chance eight. Apparently getting an unassisted triple play. Is the artist thing to do in the game like out of just basic statistics like a barely. That is the hardest thing to do. That is kind of amazing. But the team wouldn't reach heights of nineteen twenty again for twenty eight years and speaker and koetzke were aging and the yankees were rising with new weapons with babe ruth and the home run. They managed to second-place finishes but spent much of the decade in the cellar in nineteen twenty. Seven's dunn's window. Mrs george process done had died in nineteen twenty two sold the team to syndicate. They headed by alva bradley alba bradley. That is a funny name. But now bob bob feller enters the season and the indians were middling. Middling team the thirties finishing third or fourth most the years but nineteen thirty six. They brought cleveland superstar in a seventeen year. Old pitcher named bob feller who came from iowa with a dominating fastball. That years feller said off a record with seventeen strikeouts in a single game and went on to lead the league in strikeouts from nineteen thirty eight until nineteen forty one on august twenty nineteen thirty eight indians catcher. Hank heff and frank paul set the quote unquote all-time altitude mark by catching baseballs dropped from.

"Attendance to home games in eighteen ninety nine and obviously that is horrible. For a hundred and forty five spectators for nine thousand fans and the one hundred one road losses is also a record that is probably never ever ever going to be threatened because like with current scheduling practices home teams after play. Eighty one games. Eighty one home games at eighty-one away games like you can't even have that many away games played anymore unless you cow this year's Unless you count like this year's toronto blue jays if like you could technically count them but they're still not gonna have that many losses this year and then the nineteen sixty two the just put that in perspective. The nineteen sixty two mets and the two thousand three detroit. Tigers owned the modern worst record equivalents. The one thousand nine hundred eighty two mets won forty games out of their one hundred sixty with a record of one hundred and twenty or excuse me forty one hundred twenty eight point two five winning percentage and then the tigers won forty three games and lost one hundred nineteen in two thousand three for a to sixty five winning percentage those record holders and i really do. I wish that this team had not been sold. I think that one of the biggest reasons that i think. Cleveland fans are like live and die so much with this team is because been getting screwed out of eighteen for centuries now and while and we'll we'll we'll talk more about. I want this part two kinda come from the heart and then we'll finish up the last segment with kind of modern day just dr- like sadness and wall so talk about the one thousand nine hundred twenty twenty really but i want this part to kind of come from the heart a little bit and so as as you guys know i am a cleveland. Baseball fan Absolutely and. I mean that fandom is kind of dwindling as i get older and as i don't want to root against certain players i don't wanna have to root against mike trout and shohei otani and i'm starting to realize that don't necessarily have to and i'm kind of finding ways around that There's one phantom. I don't think is ever going to Really change and that is literally the. That's the cleveland browns. But i i want to. I want to bring back that twenty. The year twenty sixteen because that was by far cleveland's best year as a really just in professional sports because they had two teams to professional sports teams in their respective championships. And while the cleveland indians that year did fall short it was a magical ride and yeah we would definitely like to have that championship back and am i always worried that the rain is gonna come when something good is happening now. Yes but cleveland was expecting in that summer of twenty sixteen. They were expecting around. I think they said five hundred thousand fans to come out for the cleveland. Cavaliers parade and that number was closer to three to five million. It was a large amount of people that all came down to cleveland to celebrate a win and while that was a little bit special because it was the first win so it might have got a few more people out than expected. But it didn't have people who you know just crying and so happy because of how much that team phil. I watched a documentary recently on those nineteen ninety cleveland indians with manny ramirez and bartolo cologne and And the list goes off. Jim thome you have albert bell than the list really does go on. And and as as cleveland is people. Say that cleveland is good enough to just get you close enough to break your heart and it's true it really is true. You take a look at that twenty. Sixteen finals with the with the braun in the nba. The basketball and this is the baseball. Podcast but cleveland really does get close enough to break your heart. They almost lost the cleveland. The cavs at year were on the brink of elimination in that series for four straight games. So your heart rate is already going up. Being cleveland fan having good teams. Because you think you're gonna blow it and then you're about to blow it and then you don't and then it's just joyous and then the exact opposite thing happens for that baseball team but when you were watching that team it wasn't and this is from a fan perspective but when you were watching that team play. It wasn't a you. were proud to be. Were like to be where you're from. You were proud to be from the state of ohio. I was very proud of my mom. Lives from northeast. ohio like near near cleveland. like it's it's something that you take a lot of pride in and you want your city to be represented. Well and i think that's one of the biggest reasons that cleveland care so deeply about these teams. I mean cleveland. Ohio is it's a beautiful place to go and see and live in but it's not for everybody and there's not a ton of stuff that's really going on to like make them excited about being there especially during like the winter but during the summer they have a lot of stuff to do and win a sport team doing well the whole city rallies around it becomes even more special. It's because of those moments that you get with your kids. It's because of those moments that you always remembering you always cherish with. Your friends is so much more than just a team. And because of that. I i really do think that. The cleveland spiders. The best name choice so mostly on social media and things like that. It's between the spiders and the guardians. And now i am one hundred percent on the spiders train. I think that it would be just such an omen is to two cy young to so many players that played all like on friar cleveland teams to name it what it was before the team was sold again like before the team was taken out of the hands of the fans before these fans were told that this is going to be run like a side show. You're not gonna wanna come here. So then they don't come. And then they closed the franchise like instead of just maybe letting that one that franchise go under or merging. The two franchises together. No they the owners decided to go and buy a separate franchise because they just had that kind of fu money at the time to go. Buy a second professional franchise and say that you're just going to run one of the teams like aside show and i. It's kind of amazing to me how that person doesn't understand how how those people don't understand like how business works like of course if you tell people it's not going to be a good product then it's not going to be a good product if get rid of what's bringing the people to the stadium then absolutely. That is exactly what's going to happen. They're not gonna come because you're saying hey remember this guy that you really like to watch. Yeah he's playing over there and most of the games that you could have come to in gone and seen him play in just different uniform but still go see him play. You're not gonna do that anymore either. Because we're going to also make cleveland. Just go on the road the entire time lake. I don't get that at all. I don't understand the thought process. In that. I don't get it in the slightest and like i just i i. I am afraid that. I'm afraid the guardians isn't the isn't enough of a change because if you look at the pictures the guardians look a lot like native americans and i think that the spiders have a very rich history. That's that's mostly why i'm going with it. Because i like the history behind spiders. And i think it could be the literally the ultimate redemption story. Like how great would it be. If cleveland were to put together a decent roster toward the end of this year where they're competing to absolutely urge to where they're ready to compete with everybody next year or Whatever year they ended up changing name because they might not even change next year but regardless. I think it would be such a great story. If cleveland were to go back to the spiders and also i kind of think the logos are a little bit cooler too. So i'm gonna leave it at that. And we are going to finish this segment talking about the cleveland indians. At after this short break want to know the latest and soccer that listen to the golden state media concepts soccer podcast from m. l. ask the world premier li. We've got you covered the latest.

"Two players and thirty one point five thousand dollars. One of the largest slums played for any any pair. Any player at the time that that that hurts it hurts knowing. And i already knew that but it hurts knowing that your organization could have had the entire career of one of the greatest players ever and literally one player who granted granted. He definitely has a lot more ambiguity in. I mean really. Just a legend around him because of that. Nineteen nineteen world series. But she'll this. Year jackson was still one of the best players in all of baseball. And i think a lot of people only know him from the or really just from the cleveland from chicago. Not even cleveland i. i didn't even know chicago. Was these second team or potentially even more After like after that. But i want to go in a little bit on the cleveland. Spiders because i am a a huge guy that is I'm a huge fan of this name and it's because the cleveland indians haven't always been named the indians in fact baseball's been played in cleveland since eighteen sixty five under the names of the forest citys of cleveland that they were an amateur club And then in nineteen me. Eighteen sixty nine through eighteen seventy two. They were the forest. Citys of cleveland as a professional club from eighteen.

Indians are a professional baseball team. Based obviously in. Cleveland ohio they've completed. They've competed in the major leagues as as a club. Member of the al central division since one thousand nine hundred four now the american league obviously it was a little bit earlier. They've been playing there for a while but they've been playing since the in the al central division since oh four now. They have played at progressive field. That was also called the jake. It's also they've also played at cleveland municipal stadium. I mean we'll. We're going to talk a lot about this. The teams world championship drought though since one thousand forty eight is the longest active among all current thirty. Mlb teams so the name indians originally request by club owner charles saumur to baseball writers to choose a new name to replace the cleveland. Net following the departure of the nap. Lash way after the nineteen fourteen season and it was a revival of the nickname that fans gave to cleveland. Spiders louis stock. Alex native american. Who was playing for the team back when they were the spiders. Obviously common nicknames for the indians included the tribe and the wa who's the latter referencing their former logo chief wa who the team's mascot is named slider though and the team has ceased using chief wa who as of a few years ago and they say that they will cease using the name indians following the twenty twenty one baseball season.

"No. I think that francisco lindores some house going to bring some magic. And they've got they've been building plenty of momentum and if you watch them in spring training there's tons of chemistry going on tons and i'm like man their smiles on their faces and that goes a long way so i really do think the east is going to be rough in the national league. But i think the mets are gonna pull it out. Ok okay. that's philly. I got philly initially. I did ya actually on my on my notes here. I do not have philly. But i'm actually bumping them up. I'm going to take philly. Who did you have i. I'll tell you there my wildcard team. We'll get there okay. Okay okay. all right. I've got my car too because i think i think they're going to recover this year. Yes i've said thousand times. A bullpen trouble. Bolton bullpen is a huge issue. But if you're going into the offseason. This was our only weakness. Let's figure out. I feel like you can come back next year. Be dangerous especially when you're retaining the best catcher in baseball though. He might be hurt right now. You've got one of the best. Our best hitting outfielders in bryce harper. You've got you've got a great team. Just thirteen was a was a problem yet. So i think they're going to bounce back this year and do really well and take the division over the mets. You really think so over the mets. I think the mets are the bats are going to bed. I said at nine. I'll say it again. Not afraid break. Fine this in the central. I have saint louis taken the central.

"Yeah seventy. Seven seasons out of his eighteen year career led the league in strikeouts and in in nineteen forty-six he started forty two games at thirty six. Complete games ten shutouts and somehow did not win the mvp that year. I don't know how okay ray for this you'd be a run away with it for now. The aglet he threw three no hitters three twelve one hitters. That's insane. He holds the club record for strikeouts at two thousand five hundred eighty one and he has a club records for innings pitched at three thousand eight hundred twenty seven. I mean that's that's crazy. Got the club record for wins at two sixty six over one sixty two and this is the best part ready for this. I found this. You're gonna love this guy. The indian signed this is from Cleveland sports talk dot com. The signed bob feller as a teenager for one dollar and an autographed baseball. Yep that's right. He made his major league debut as seventeen years old in nineteen thirty six. And how did his cheeky. How did his debut go question. Mark he struck out fifteen batters course he did. Oh man. that's crazy to think about this a seventeen year old doing that. You don't have how many how many how many young kids go that long. And their major league face fifteen batters and our major league debut. Now no please. And they're not seventeen not even close their twenty one no not at least it's only three twenty four exactly so on opening day. Nineteen forty bob. Feller became the first and only pitcher to ever throw a no hitter on opening day. He threw a no hitter on opening day. In one thousand nine hundred forty that is just bonkers midseason form mid-season for him. That's was i can't even believe it. Man pitching record in club history. Every single one wasn't surprised. Only part of that is because he pitched for the he pitched for the indians for eighteen years especially now. We don't see that with guys who are top. Tier pitchers yep Especially with the indians because they actually said this week they couldn't afford to build a team around around francisco indoor and that's why they traded him yet. They're definitely not going to be that with a pitcher. They're not going to keep him around. But these these These club records gonna stand forever. These ones for cleveland for sure. Oh yeah never gonna change. Yeah yeah definitely that. They'll always be bob dylan for that reason. Well anyways the same team. That's also unheard of these days. Pretty cool i love that.

"Yeah but yes kenny. Lofton is my first choice for mount rushmore. That's great that's terrific. Ready for the overlap. we're about to experience. Yes it's not. it's not kenny. Lofton for those. You wonder okay. My name i could one of the names i could not get away from. Was jim thome me. I just can't can't talk about cleveland. Without talking about jim thome and i don't think that will come as any surprise to people. Five time all star hall of famer. He's silver slugger award winner. Seventy two point nine war okay. That's that's huge. Now the best thing for me about jim thome e and his career in cleveland was nobody cared about jim thome e when he was coming up in fact he spent a bunch time in the minor. Leagues bounced around here and there Worked on this worked on that. They actually moved his official position to first base late When he was up and back and forth back and forth back and forth between aaa and major leagues so for me his kind of cinderella story. His redemption is as much of a testament to his career careers as statistics are and i think it's awesome. And he's a great just a i think he was signed by cleveland. Right out of high school and then he went to juku or something for a while and then he came back and was signed by cleveland again. Something like that. I mean they had their eye on him for a really long time. And i just think that I just think he's great plus that that look on his face is just so. It's just perfect. Right beneath chief wad is i won't i can't get into it but if you know what i mean you know what i mean. You know what i mean. I know he was actually my next guy list. You're right the overlap. I knew her and like you said hall of famer and you know one of the things. That always drove me crazy. I hated gym told me as a player absolutely hated him. Because you knew that if he was up and the indians or you know later on the phillies or whoever. He was playing for white sox if they needed a home run if they needed a home run he was gonna hit it yeah..

"Podcast baseball family. I am brad and as always to my right. I have break high grabby. I've been wanting to say that we're should have done it in my little rascals voice. Sorry okay go ahead. i'm here there. You go all right rigs here to some degree but let's get started. let's We we got a lot going on. We got some current events. Or we're going to get into the indians mount rushmore this week. shohei otani of the la or anaheim angels whichever you prefer of the geographically nondescript angels right so shohei otani is doing some little league stuff like i said he. He was batting leadoff this weekend while also pitching and how's this. He went to two with five strikeouts. He's the magic of spring training. My friend he. He says he wants to do it. He doesn't want him to d. h. for him. Well we know what player wants then. What owner and manager decide is best. I know it's true. And i'm curious. I'm really curious if that's something like if you can if they could h. For somebody in the lineup who happens to be Maybe an offense of liability right and then make like some kind of double switch when otani done pitching and then make move him from pitcher to d. h. then take out that d. h. input into say that it's Say that it's the catcher who donahue catching for the for the angels right now. But let's say that he's their offense reliability the da bringing otani and make the switch to otani as d. h. and then bring in a different catcher. You know yeah that make sense. I wonder if that would work I don't know because i know that if you put your d. h. In the field then you lose it you lose. Yeah that's right. So i wonder if they made a switch where they moved the pitcher to d. h. I don't know why that wouldn't work. I don't i think our problem is. We've never even that. This is the first time so you know anybody consider this. So the d. h. wasn't even around wasn't no so i wonder if if that could work and to be honest if anybody's gonna try it it's going to be joe maddon. Oh yeah i was just gonna say the same thing it's mad dog means the guy who that we're gonna call on that now we should. I think we should mad dog madden. It's official but if anybody's gonna legal ease of the major league baseball rulebook. It's going to be him because he's always pushing the limits anyway right and that and that's the thing is he'll get creative and he'll find a way to make magic happen and people will say now. Hold on wait a minute. You mean you're gonna put all your infielders on one side of the infield. He's going to say yes. We are. well you can't do that. Well say says just did. I just did and guess what it's been working for almost twenty years. I forced power hitter to bunt down the third base line and said it over the fence. Yeah i would yeah. He wouldn't know that some. I do think i think that's something to keep an eye on though. See how they steal..
