"You know what? You know what she looks like, right? The woman, he was with Yes, I know who you're talking about. I forgot her name. Andrea, Constantinople. Yes, she looks like Steven Tyler. You're right. And you know what? You have a great impression of Steven. And when you know, and I know it was when they announced that she was out in front of the courtroom and they said, Bill Cosby has been left free and she went off.

"Great. Again, I am your text of guy and we are here of course, with the president of the United States of Mara Lago mr. Donald gloating J. Trump Mister president, happy Fourth of July. How are you? Well, it's okay after a bad start. It's actually the 5th of July right now but you wish people, I didn't speak to you yesterday so long. I push push voters that I guess that's my fault. Happy belated July, 4th house that I don't accept true Patriots. Don't accept age ISM. An IOU for patriotism. Well, how was your July 4th? I was great. Mike Pence was actually came over and he said, sir, can I watch the Nathan's hotdog eating contest? And I said, have added Mike? And then I walked in and I walked in and it was certainly not the Nathan's hotdog eating contest that he was watching or some other sort of you know, pork products being consumed, but didn't I didn't see Great American, Joey Chestnut anywhere, I saw Not Dead. And CGI chestnuts, Mike Pence. He's a sneaky one, that's why. I mean there is a try to you gotta give to Joey Chestnut. I mean no one can touch this guy. I once we took that Kobayashi Kobayashi and that's and that's what we want to do. The Republican party if we can stop the radical left Democrat, Kobayashi, you know, in the in the kobayashi's office voting and we, when are we going to have a competition will get many strong votes in the wind? The Democrats, though, they probably want Kobayashi to come in and take back the hotdogs and we won't let them but is it seemed very Democratic not letting people vote. Well, you were just supporting Joey Chestnut. So I thought you'd be supportive of my voting idea. It's it's about no voter fraud. We don't want voter fraud, but if you look like somebody who would do voter fraud, we also don't like about him. I just find it crazy that in all of our country are actually, all the world knowing can eat. Hot dogs like this man in the past. Where does he? He's wonderful last like, ten years, at least, right? At least. But, I mean, you know, if I was just doing it, I think you would agree, I would beat him a lot worse. You think, if you practice, you can be a hot dog eating champion. Well, I can tell you this right now. Before we were married mesothelioma. I think she, I mean, she took down had to be 105 in an hour. And let's, and by the way, I imagine Rodger Stones wife Nathan's contest. She need all that dogs and then go aged. Chestnuts, cock. I mean, talk about that's cutting, that's cutting him. Sort of how incredible with that pays. She's she's like, okay, well I'm done with you know, 800 Nathan's or found what? What I'm incredible show of move, that would be well. Joey Chestnut still trying this stuff, you know seventy-one sir. And and you know Rodger Stones wife is like a hundred in a matter of that dog. When you go and she just goes for Joey, chestnut's cock right in the middle of the contest. I mean game over right? Like how do you she's beaten you. And now she's she's looking for or other products to putting them out because she's so bored because she dominated so strongly. We love Rodger, Stones wife, she's a classy lady. Very great Patriot that would definitely throw you if you were trying to eat hot dogs and your competitor finished. All of them then went after your own hotdog. No, no, no Rodger. Stones wife, when we've gone to baseball games she's she's such a she showed true to who she is dead and I most people get mustard. Some people get ketchup on hotdogs, right..
"We're going to start in the early nineties back before this shift. When the old rules about government borrowing still applied. Bill clinton had just been elected president. He appointed an economist named laura tyson to be one of his top advisors and she looked at the economy and she saw this glaring problem year after year. Both government deficits and interest rates. Were going up and then he said omega if we don't get a hold of this federal deficit than that trend will continue. Those rates will continue upward. That was a very significant concern. Higher interest rates were concerned for a couple of reasons for one thing. Obviously they meant that the government had to pay more to borrow money but also when interest rates for the government went up. Interest rates also went up for everybody else. And that's it up this whole cascade of problems so we're people won't buy as many houses. There won't be as many houses constructed in their wealth as much capital equipment invested in and investments in important part of the Economic growth in your all sorts of every interest sensitive part of the economy the way the government runs a deficit. The way it borrows money is by selling bonds treasury bonds. The government says to really anybody. Okay lend us whatever one hundred dollars and in say ten years we will pay you back with interest will pay you back one hundred twenty dollars. The bond is basically the government's i. Iou you that it will pay back that loan with interest and during the clinton administration because of that link between deficits and interest rates. Everybody in the white house talked about treasury bonds about the bond market time. James carville was a political advisor to president. Clinton was just an obsession. In the early days of clinton's everybody say what's the bond market could house bot mocking react to hell multiple. i don't know it just became this omnipresent. The heart of every conversation. James carville was not an economics guy but as he spent time at the white house he realized that sort of bizarrely all these people who worked there making policy the people who had what seemed like the most powerful jobs in the world. We're in fact terrified of the bond market so when a reporter from the wall street journal called up carville to talk about the bond market. He came up with this line that became sort of famous or at least bond market famous kid. I wanted to grow up with four hundred hitter. The pope and the president. But i just want to be the bond. Market's gonna scare the hell out of everybody pleat. What did he say. A what a hundred hitter like in baseball pope the president baseball. I cannot tell you how many times he said that's me. Every meeting every meeting a lot of my memories are about carville sort of making jokes about you. Know you issues as a bond trader bond traders. These are the people who work in finance all around the world who manage a bunch of money. Generally other people's money pension funds or college endowments that kind of thing and every day they decide what bonds to buy and what bonds to sell what companies and countries to lend to and what companies and countries to not lend to to stop lending to and like with any lender bond traders worry about lending more money to a borrower who is already borrowing a lot because all that borrowing makes it more risky and so to compensate for that risk bond traders demand a higher interest rate. They stop lending until rates. Go up and this bond traders demanding higher interest rates when the government is borrowing more money. This is the scenario that everyone was so worried about people. Were so afraid of this that there was even a special term for the bond traders. Who do this bond vigilantes. Bill clinton has convinced. The bond vigilantes are scary and in fact he decides the us needs to bring the deficit down. He decides to build a whole economic plan around getting rid of the deficit. One of the economists he brought in to make that happen was jason and a central argument. That we made was if you do this. It will lower interest rates and interest rates are lower will have more investment and more economic growth and sort of amazingly. All of this happened. They did raise taxes and cut spending and get the deficit down. In fact by the end of the clinton administration the deficit felt all the way to zero. And what came next was sort of a golden moment for the economy in silicon valley. There was the dot com boom but really the whole economy was doing great businesses of all kinds. Were doing well. Ordinary workers were getting breezes lower deficits lead to lower interest rates which led to more investment. And that was good for basically everybody. The system was working. The next big moment in the story comes right after the financial crisis of two thousand eight and this is the moment when everything is about to change when this big shift in the way the world works is about to happen but nobody quite nosy yet. Brock obama has just been elected. President obama brings in clinton's guy. Jason furman as one of his economic advisors and ferment. Goes into this meeting to discuss. How big of a stimulus. Bill obama should push for as he takes office. We met with the president-elect december sixteenth two thousand eight and we're all crowded together in a conference room. I think it was in a law firm in chicago and he wanted it to be big. He wanted to be bold but there was this worry. The stimulus was going to be funded with deficit. Spending government was going to borrow the money. And some of obama's own economic advisers worried that borrowing and spending too much money might actually harm the economy for that classic reason

"So dust off your your your laundry, Puns Ben, because I got to be being story to tell you. So The Washington Post reported that Israeli prime minister, Netanyahu is notorious for bringing extra suitcases full of dirty laundry to Washington. No metaphors there. When a foreign head of state visits they stay Blair House maybe or some other facility. The staff does laundry for you as a courtesy but apparently bb and his wife only stuff their bags full of dirty underwear like college kids like flying home for Thanksgiving visit. Netanyahu's first laundry based controversy in two thousand sixteen he sued Israel's Attorney General to prevent the release of his actual laundry tabs I. Guess The government was picking them up. So there's also lots of reporting that in his wife have done this in other countries they took eleven suitcases on a one day trip to Portugal in December. Netanyahu has also been accused of accepting illegal gifts and bribes like champagne cigars. Make this Ben, How fucking expensive is it to do laundry in Israel of all the things that places to save cash I don't get it but whatever I they they must have washer dryer and and yeah like. Q Metaphor of bbn now, suffering politically home and coming to the US and laundering his book. But I mean, I'll just leave it short, which is like, would you like like presidents and prime ministers are like people in your life and you probably wouldn't want someone in your life who shows up at Your House with eleven suitcases of dirty laundry. So you probably should have that person as president or prime minister reminded me of me as a freshman what I would like duct tape trash bag. My mother my. Mother here's a warning for a obnoxious yelp reviewers The New York Times reported that an American living in Thailand who was pissed off about being charts. A fee at a resort was arrested on charges of criminal defamation. After he wrote several negative reviews about the place on tripadvisor now, he could face up to two years in jail. So if you're considering visiting the seaview cone Chang Resort on the island of coaching, do not do it. We are sort of joking around about this because it's absurd but we've previously talked about a line Thailand that criminalizes insulting Thailand's king that can get you fifteen years in this defamation laws not were helping businesses silence critics. Ben. Is Actually never been to Thailand I've always wanted to go. But this kind of makes me nervous seems like the worst possible pr for resort in a country there really needs tourism dollars kind of a cell phone here. Yeah it is. I mean I guess it's also less than that. If you have that that wave of rage over something, you know when wrong and your hotel like you know the AC didn't work like calm down before running. But. I. Think that Thailand. Country we don't talk about enough. They have so much going for. The location. The people are wonderful like the. Tourism resources the food, and there's been a lot of cellphones in Thailand recently like the this. Crazy. Crazy new king the. Dictatorial regime and now criminalising yelp reviews so. We should keep an eye on it but I I would advise people like take a deep deep breath and use measured language before writing those yelp. As a as a rule of thumb generally that's Great I. I. Agree with you unless of course, you're smashing the five-star button on missing American patsies and and writing emotionally charged positive reviews. Those we like quickly and Belarus. So French, President Emmanuel Macron. met with the Belarus opposition leader in Lithuania on Tuesday, it's interesting. macron has been has been really out in front on this. He's been pushing for Europe to do more to mediate this political crisis that has paralyzed Belarus since the presidential election in early August the you came Canada also announced coordinated sanctions on Alexander. Lukashenko. The longtime dictator and hopefully soon, former president of. Belarus on Tuesday Vladimir. Putin. Gave a speech denouncing external pressure on Belarus. So the situation in Belarus has not changed a lot. It's interesting how active macron has been on the diplomatic front. You also went to Lebanon twice he's been pushing Putin for more transparency about the poisoning Russian opposition leader Alexei Navalny Ben, what do make of them like filling this void of American leadership I think it's really positive sign and look I know the macron's not perfect. Nobody's perfect. But like if you let 'em merckel taking in Navan the after he was poisoned macron stepping back from meeting with Putin taking the stand on Belarus that people Belarus more than anybody deserve credit because they're not going home they keep coming out they had this mock inauguration of the opposition figure that one hundred, thousand people in the street again, it's very hopeful to see these European leaders and people I'm standing up for things and standing up to Putin and seeming up for peopling Navan me at a time when the is doing nothing and you know I think that indicates that if Joe Biden selected he can. Step right into that momentum and try to turbo charge it right and get this pendulum swing back in the direction of democracy and back in the direction of accountability for all these corrupt autocrats. So they deserve credit and it's not easy to do, and hopefully they'll have a partner in the US soon enough last story this a great one. So move over pizza rat because there is a new rat king in town his name is Mugabe. This is a five year old African giant pouched rat, and he received an award from an organization called the people's dispensary for sick animals for his work detecting landmines in Cambodia Ben Issue, very near and dear to your heart that you've worked on a lot. I'm a little surprised. You didn't get McGowan on missing America because this little Stud has sniffed out thirty nine landmines twenty eight pieces of unexploded ordinance. He is better at the job than any human being because he can smell TNT and he can avoid wasting time digging up like scrap at all that would be detected by metal detector and he can search an area thirty minutes that would take a human being four days. Then you want to talk a little bit about why land And unexploded ordinance are such a problem in Cambodia and what the US government is tried to do about it. Yeah. Well, first of all, like you know. Hey I could do it. This rat could do I. Guess I mean this is some serious shit. I this issue near and dear to my heart because of Laos but but basically, and I'll come to las second. But you know Cambodia Vietnam Laos where absolutely littered with weapons after the Vietnam. War Right in the diversity of weapons. In Cambodia, there was an acute use of landmines everywhere right, and so these are weapons that you know in often cases unexploded. So Children Can Stumble on these things. People are still getting killed. Laos there eighty million unexploded us. Bombs more bombs are dropped on Laos than on Germany and Japan were two and children are still killed with with alarming frequency and they matter to Tommy not just because of humanitarian impact of someone to get hurt. But these are agricultural countries right? You know they can't farm the land that that is littered with bombs are littered with mines. So it's both the humanitarian and economic development issue to clear this stuff. Actually the US has done a lot in Vietnam for instance to clean up. Asian orange and some of the chemicals left behind We're beginning to do more in Laos invested a lot in Cambodia. I have an organization that that I'm involved with the. World Looking for non political NGO that does great work. It's called legacies of war and they basically for the resources to clean this stuff up and there's a bill that's actually sitting in committee. Now looks like it might come through Congress, that would put a lot of funding into clean up these weapons allow so. These are you know this is part of our legacy. helped. Destroy these places in the Vietnam War just Vietnam but Laos and Cambodia and central to turning the page or cleaning up unexploded ordnance landmines, and by the way the LAS which you've mentioned on the pot is the US should join the International Convention Banning Landmines. That'd be another good step that day. Yeah. That would be a good step I know there's the North Korea issue to deal with come on. Guys. Let's just make some progress every. Yeah. We have a war plan that doesn't rely on landmines. We should maybe look Ludo workloads agreed. Okay. Well, we come back. We'll a Benz interview with doctor about Afghanistan Pakistan whole other bunch of great stuff stick.

"Million dollars in direct aid and investment paid for by the US in the UAE. So Ben, this SST list question is a little complicated for me to answer. Sudan was put on the list of ninety three I remember being in a million meetings with you about this exact question. In makes it really hard for us to the end to get foreign investment. Some people argue that the s designating isn't warranted anymore because Omar Bashir the former dictator is now gone and he was the creepy really had the ties to terrorism but you have no clue rex, we don't see intelligence anymore. So who knows, but this eight hundred million is just a bribe to get the White House something They can call a political wind before the election in my opinion. So then to question for you. Is there anything you can explain about this issue to sort of folks understand? How these processes work or why it's important with the right decision is I guess, and then second do you think the eight hundred million for Sudan will be delivered via pallets of cash or would they find another mechanism? That's a world Oh, deep cut for the listeners at home. Well, first of all, the state sponsored terrorism list is hopelessly politicized tool I mean. Just, consider this facts, right Pakistan is not on the speed sponsors right and and and we know that elements the tax government. The intelligence service had for years basically been state sponsors of a whole range of terrorist organizations. And built organizations that operate. In. Kashmir in in Afghanistan and other places, right. Cuba was on the list until we took them off. And we asked why is Cuban this list and? The only thing they could drag up. was that. Some Basque. Terrorists from eighty people conducted car bombs in the eighties. Lived in Cuba really. and. So we called the Spanish and said Hey. Apparently the only reason these guys are on this list is these bad guys in Spanish said, Oh, yeah. We asked the Cubans to take them because we wanted them to get out of school. They're doing us a favor by hosting these guys and we're like by the way by all accounts, all the room mills they're the trump is gonNA put Cuba back on the state sponsor terrorism list. pre-election, right one more thing. He can try it out in Florida. So this is complete and utter bullshit. This list is some extension of the domestic politics of presidents. It's an outdated tool and and so I think we have to rethink this whole thing. It doesn't mean there shouldn't be some way to designate. Governments for punitive action for sanctioned there should right. But this list is not it I mean this is hopeless. What credibility as a list have? That is just a rotating cast of characters that are basically whoever the current president doesn't like. the second thing is. I think a more profound which is. Why this is our top priority with Sudan. Would like Sudan to recognize. Israel sure Michio absolutely. Yes. But there's a big butter. Sudan is in the middle of a political transition where a peaceful movement ousted this brutal dictator. There's a lot of question as to whether this kind of interim government will follow through on a transition to democracy and allow for credible elections. And a meaningful civilian leadership of that country. There's the biggest concern is that the country's whispering in the ear of the Sudanese military to not allow democracy to our wait for it the United Arab. Emirates, and Saudi Arabia just like they did in Egypt Sudan's neighbour, right. So what was the worry that some of US had about this whole enterprise to begin with that? All it would do is strengthen. Autocracy in the region, and if you have a US government going to Sudan and saying, the only thing we care about is whether or not you recognize Israel a few weeks before the election. So we can have a talking point in Palm Beach and and oh by the way we're GonNa pay you with the Ahmadis who've been telling you to not have a true democracy come to route in Sudan. It's grotesque. Okay. It's not what should be driving the priorities of the United States of America. It's not a good and healthy way to have countries recognize Israel right? That's not how this piece should not happen because of a pre-election bribe in some muscling in politicization of terrorism list right so that's what I think about this whole thing no man look in the frustrating is at this nakedly political play I think is working for some people for whom you know. Israel is their top issue but at the same time, our government is going back to like a fifties style. CI. Coup. Happy. Foreign policy that I think is incredibly troubling reaffirms all the worst things about American. Hemi and you know. Self interest in various countries and is is going to be devastating to us long term I think if we if we. Actively. Help prevent democracy from from taking root in Sudan. We are. You know we are worse than what they say about us. What happens if there's a crackdown in the next peaceful demonstrations and we've given away all of our leverage over this and I want to say I have I have friends who who disagree with me and say, this is so important for Israel and and yes, you can see I'm sure this is having some positive political benefit for them with some voters who care a lot about this but think about is this really the way you want countries to come about normalizing relations with Israel. In the long run is healthy way for Israel to be accepted by the community of nations. Donald Trump and Mohammed bin Salman. Says proxy like strong arming than before us election paying God knows one under the table and not really like it's not that's not how pieces made in sustained. Never mind the fact that I don't believe it's in the long term interest of the Jewish state to have a United States who is supported by white nationalists nationalists, right? Like this is not. The transactional win of chocking up a couple small countries in the column of of recognizing Israel. Is Not worth the greater risk of emboldening this brand of politics. In the world in the US and the world yeah I agree. Okay, you mentioned Pakistan the minute goes there. The former president of Pakistan. A Caesar Dari was indicted Monday on on money laundering charges that his supporters say are part of a broader campaign by supporters of the current Prime Minister Imran Khan to punish or stifle cons political opponents. Zardari. If you don't know about him was married to Benazir Bhutto who is the former prime minister of Pakistan? She was assassinated in two thousand seven before being elected President Zardari actually spent about a decade in prison. US even elected to parliament while in jail and that was on top of any other allegations of corruption that have made against him. Pakistani authorities arrested our sister they arrested Guy Name, Shahbaz Sharif leader of the opposition in parliament in his also the younger brother of former prime. Minister Nawab Sharif. So Ben. I have no idea what to make of any of these charges in large part because I don't think they've released any evidence against Ari but I my gut reaction I guess was to be a little more concerned about the prime minister locking up political opponents than even the corruption itself. But what did you make of the story? Is there anything about Zardari or the Pakistani political system that you think people should know? Well you know it's interesting because this deal this on the interview I'd kind of describes his family's experience with corruption in how however president was it's just everywhere in the Pakistani political system right So yeah these these rumors of corruption dogs Zardari. Just like they dog run con just like they dog every public official Pakistan and I think the basic point is. If you really want to tackle that. There's really sincere desire to get at the endemic corruption, Pakistan. You need to engage in structural changes not selective prosecutions, right? So Zardari may very well of engage in corrupt actions. The problem is when this is how governments act on corruption, it just makes the Pablo population cynical that that quote unquote anti corruption is not about rooting out corruption. It's about whoever happens empowered gets to use corruption as as the vehicle for imprisoning their opponent..

"Stacey next. Jacob Feldstein. Planet money author of money the true story of amid up during a new book. Say I. brought props for us to do the indicator. I say. That's been months. It's been. That guy's been honking hall eight months. I have props came over so I could give you these troughs. Okay. Go ahead and look at them. All right. Okay. So, this is like a really high quality xerox of an old piece of money. THREE DOLLAR BILL RE dollar bill that's really a real thing. There's like a a lady standing next to in like a ball gown standing next to a cow to I chose a cow to pander to you I do love a cow keep going. Okay. The Orange Bank It's orange because this from the orange. Bank and this is a one dollar bill. So Stacey, these are reproductions of real paper money that was printed by private banks in the United States in the eighteen forties and fifties. This is one of the most interesting periods I found in the history of money when I was working on my book, it's this moment when the United States government did not print money, there was in fact, no single national paper currency but if you wanted to. Open Up Stacey's Bank of New York and print your own paper money. You could. I don't know if I would trust that dollar from that. Was a real problem that was a real problem we'll get to that. I. Mean they were just so many different kinds of money at one point the Chicago Tribune counted eight, thousand, three, hundred, and seventy different kinds of paper money in America. This sounds very confusing for everyone involved this indicator from planet money. I'm Stacey Vanik Smith and Jacob. Goldstein can we make eight, thousand, three, hundred and seventy, the indicator? Yes. Today on the show. How can you even have that many kinds of money and also just what does it tell us about money works? Let's just go. Let's just go a block away to get away from the horn. Yeah.

So can we should set the scene here Jacob the nineteenth century America lots of is apparently also this was the era when gold and silver were money and Jacob say in the book that the government minted gold and silver coins, but it did not make paper money at that time. The exactly right. So the only paper money in America was printed by all of these different. Private banks people called paper money in fact banknotes, right. So they thought of it as like a piece of paper from a bank and they thought of paper money in particular as like a receipt or a coach ticket as as a thing that you could substitute for gold and silver, and in fact, if you look at at the bills I gave you all have this kind of. Writing like just grab a different one for fun. So we can say what it looks like. Okay. This is the stoning ten bank, a two dollar bill. There's a way. Moby Dick or something Wail Bell we've cow Bill Wail Bill So okay. So now look at the cursive writing see the cursive they're just blowers is stoning to. Two dollars to the bear on demand right and if you look all these different bills are different colors, they have different pictures on them, but they all say that will pay how ever many dollars to the on demand and so the second interest. Yeah it's an Iou because the interesting thing is it's telling you the paper money is not the real money. Right? They're saying we will give you two dollars in gold and silver for this paper money right? So the real money in this world is the underlying gold or silver the paper is just like. The Standard. So this is a time in history when there's not federal bank, there's not a national bank. There's like thousands of of little local banks and I guess all these banks can issue their own money. That's right and it's kind of evolving in this period at the beginning of this ehre the eighteen thirties. If you wanted to open a bank, typically you had to go to your state legislature and get special approval. Basically, they had to pass a special law that would let you open your bank and this was problematic because I was super corrupt essentially. Bank and print money. Then you're gonNA bribe whoever you have to. Say all the knee. All due respect to get them to let you open your bank. Right. So around eighteen forty, a little earlier, this new idea became popular. The new idea was called free banking. And the idea of free banking was anybody who is willing to follow a few basic rules could. Take and start printing money and literally start printing money and you know not surprisingly a lot of people wanted to print money. This is how we get eight thousand different kinds of money. Yes. How do you know if the bill that someone's handing you is real money or if it's literally just a piece of paper from the First Bank of Stacey Vanik Smith which might be real money. I wouldn't. Maybe. Add bribed senator so I love this so there arose in response to this problem these special periodicals Magazines that were privately published called banknote reporters. And what they were was these lists in tiny font of every kind of money. So I actually have a reproduction here another prop from a page. This one was called. Thomson's Bank note. Reporter. K.. So the people who subscribe to this merchants people who need to accept money. So so let's just say I'm running a bar and I got my thompsons bank note reporter and I come in I need a drink who thirsty I'm thirsty. So okay. So the page of the bank note reporter I printed out is for Orange Bank. Okay. Okay. So have that bill right here it is and it's a one dollar bill. So I find Orange Bank here in my Bengal reporter and it says Okay Orange Bank listed different bills and says ones and under wants it describes what the bill is supposed to look like says to horses check. Hey, Cart Jack Blacksmith shop male portrait Jack Girl. Check. So it's at least plausibly real. The reporter also tells me something else that's important and that explains a lot about how many works at this time. Typically would tell me whether I should accept that paper money at full face vowed I can buy my dollar whiskey with this whether you can get your dollar whiskey because remember what we care about is whether I can turn in that paper money for gold or silver, and so if the bank is shaky or even if it's just really far away. You know the reporter might say, just knock five cents off the dollar give Stacey Ninety five cents worth of whiskey instead of a dollar that took a really long time to buy that we ski. It does seem like it would have been absurdly inconvenient right and for a long time when people look back at this period, the basic story of free banking was just that was a horrible idea like that many kinds of money right but. Much, later, like in the nineteen seventies. This generation of economic historians started going back and looking more closely. At the banks and how money works in this period and what they saw when they really went through the numbers was basically like it wasn't that bad Bankston go bus that often people didn't usually lose much money when they used. We're you overall they would lose like a few percent which is. Kind of like what you pay today. So when you take money out of the weird off Brand ATM at. The corner store. which I always do. Yeah, I. Mean. That's basically like the the bartenders giving you ninety cents for your dollar when you do that, right? So. Obviously, we do not have eight thousand different kinds of money now this ended and it ended after the civil war. Yeah was the civil war. So during the civil war, that old American argument of can we have national banks or not came up again and Congress passed a few important banking laws. One of them basically taxed all those thousands of kind of state banknotes out of existence, and then the other one created these new national banks that printed much more reliable, much more uniform paper money. It's interesting because I mean, this was obviously after the civil war was the time when the United States went from like a collection of. To One Country, and it seems like the same thing happened with currency maybe not a coincidence. Your I mean, there is this idea at least in the modern world money is part of what makes a country a country and I think you do see that happening at this moment in the united. States when we go from thousands of kinds of money toward one uniform kind of paper money I'm just sad we lost the cow bills. Because you know Jacob I have a fever and the cure. This story in like a whole bunch of other like believable stories like this are in your new book money. The true story of a made up thing. This episode of the indicator was produced by Nick.

Grad Students Will Receive Billions in Debt Forgiveness
"Believe you know by now that Americans have a lot of student. Loan debt and many people are paying down. That debt was something called an income based repayment plan. That's where your payments are based on. Yes your income and you pay a percentage of that income every month and then if after twenty to twenty five years you haven't paid off those loans. The government will toss what remains of your Iou into the trash. But so how much is that? GonNa cost the government as taxpayers. The Congressional Budget Office put out a report answering that very question yesterday. And the number is around two hundred and seven billion dollars over the next decade. Wow marketplace's justin who reports it might sound like the government's issuing a get out of jail free card for all student borrowers but Justin Drager at the National Association of Student. Financial aid administrators says graduate students stand to benefit the most. There are less subsidies grants available for graduate students and there are more high cost programmes for graduate students the CBO report says Grad students on income based repayment plans. To two thousand dollars on average. Five Times what an undergraduate on the same plan over the last decade the percentage of Grad students participating in the program has grown six-fold drager says while the program was meant to be a safety net for students. The more students are needing the safety net than I. It should be a warning signal that we have a distress in the student. Loan market part of the issue. Is that a lot of graduate programs. Don't lead to higher. Earning jobs says Antoinette floor is at the Center for American progress you have people like social workers and teachers who may already have undergraduate debt and they are going into a field where the earnings are relatively low borrowers on income based repayment plans. Typically pay off their loans using ten to fifteen percent of their discretionary income each month. That's often barely enough to make a dent in what they owe says. Jason Delile the American Enterprise Institute. The payments are very low relative to what people are borrowing and relative to the term before they would have the debt forgiven the C. B. O. Estimates that by the end of the decade eighty-one percent of the government's two hundred billion in student loan. Forgiveness will go to graduate students.
"iou" Discussed on How Neal Feel
"Do not at all played against the Yes. Women love exercise classes in a way that men don't and if a guy went in it would probably feel a little exercise class at Golden. I was the third weakest woman in there like there. There were eight. There was a class of thirteen people. People I was in terms of strength. I think I came in tenth anytime I do any of like Yoga. Pilates I mean women are way more flexible. The guys in there like yes. But that's what I'm saying but the amount my point is there are like we have different hormones and different inclinations like women they always like to use them for the closet. None of but women are more. Socially adapt women are better at building. Consensus scientifically women are better managers jurors in that regard because they're better at building consensus that's been proven in study after study so to the same point will accept the positive. Is it of things about women but we but anything negative like now that sexism did say we're forever. They said women are good at multitasking. And everyone was fine with that. And then if you go women are low about science you know it's only been primed into what I'm saying is which ones are we accepting if we accept the positive you gotta accept accept the negative when I love exercise classes here nothing. There are innate differences that we all notice between men and women sure K.. Women Love Exercise Classes Justice. You going thank you. Women love exercise classes. Men kind of don't I I don't think it's just in us is like manner like no one. You can't teach this. I won't be a part of a class. Was Women are like. This'll be fun. Where together? It'll be shared responsibility and all that same thing of we're good at at consensus building goes into why women enjoy exercise classes more than men men in love a platoon women love a class swelled killing Women love of men. Women Love Exercise Class in a way that men don't and I don't know what it means and I think I mean the assumption of makers because women are more social than I. I just think there's there's a lot of these two project that onto things like science like that really has to do with comprehension and your understanding of something. I don't think as any bearing on and I know that's not what you're saying but it's hard to take this example of exercise clubs and platoon and projected on why women aren't even small Mina in these fields. You know like why. They're obsolete in some of them. Yes you do see innate differences between men and women right. Yeah Yeah So. Could that possibly apply to one of these fields. Whether it's you know the here's a sexist interpretation of this. The women don't want to sit in a fucking room by themselves like a fucking loser for a decade that that would be my the sex of the lack of of patents. And lack of beets is is like men feel like we have to earn to disguise point and we have to earn our status so to speak are like sexual viability and we do it by accomplishments. Where women do it by being being good looking men have to do this to this guy's point that's my sex and it's probably wrong but it's my brain spit it out? I do think that the industries we're talking about these extraordinary people. These are people who are pioneering these industries and smart people and people who who didn't just take computer science classes but are like getting you know pivotal roles in that industry and somehow women aren't so we're not just China run of the mill right but still so there's a hundred to one men to women of extraordinary what you're saying. No I don't think saying that's it innately true. I'm just saying that the idea that Oh. I don't want to be in a room all day because like I like being social and I don't WanNa do that. I think we're not talking about. I think there's obviously differences in men and women but these pioneers in the industry. You know I think they. I think they have a lot more in common than just their. I don't know gender generalizations. I think like a woman there. I'm sure there's a woman out there that does want to do that. That is as good at comprehension and that is like fuck. What getting my nails done? I won't do that. She's still prevention right. But I think that that's that's who thirty GINSBURG is or Schumer. Any the whoever pick a person or a different any of these people like. I don't think that these people I don't think able to do is short on glamour or any of that stuff and maybe i. I don't know what I'm saying. Is there could be a potential gender difference in some of these things and I think it's you're not allowed to say you're not supposed to say that you know it's because it was like maybe they just don't WanNa fucking sit in a room like a fucking loser for and smoke weed and or whatever people like beat makers a lot to sit there and smoke with their boys and then fuck around and then the science one. I don't understand. I don't think it's because women aren't good side. I just don't understand why men have so many fucking invent everything I just don't understand documented. I know I know I don't that is a good idea. You imagine how many women have been like not approved. I'm not saying it's a bias against women. I don't know if it is. I don't know if you have to prove what gender you are when you apply for it. I'm just saying you know I don't know I don't know enough and you're right in that if it were black people and white people. I'd be like well because they don't want programs like it would be in my explanation very simple and I would never dare say. Might there be innate differences between black people white people right. No you'd never say that but I do you think you particularly do like to poke at these gender roles that we as I do and I feel like you're a little bit less open to like absolutely jumping to sexism absolutely i. It's my comfort zone. I will also say that I do think that at the average black guy on the street is funnier than most white comedians. So again I'm I when I see it I'm honest about like rock. Every black earth has stage presence which is basically saying. Let's wrap it up that's enough you've had enough podcast podcast. You had to fill and the PODCAST. Now I think you know what's good bye uh-huh and took the..
"iou" Discussed on How Neal Feel
"Right this. They've really a good point that a guy made the headline was true crime. He'd order at another email about true crime and he said true. Crime is sort of like cultural appropriation. That's not frowned upon white people benefiting at the expense of others whom they have no real concern for all right. So he's he's got a point but the problem is black people like true crime. Maybe more than I mean. No people like cheap. That's what I I mean like women and my joke about women love true crime because they have to make sure that they're not on that episode because every woman thinks she's either been murdered GonNa be murdered and she just has to make sure the The and the reason women tell us about their day so much is in case there murdered. We can repeat it back to detective now. Stanton Neal Brennan doing stand up this weekend. Gend at the Shoe Mash Casino. As a matter of fact doing a casino isn't that near Santa Barbara Baba Baba Santa Barbara Jewish cool. Thank you that that joke is part of it benefiting the expense of others whom they have no retirement. I I will say that there is something a little bucket but a little weird about a network or podcast or Any any outlet that does documents about murders not giving money to the victims. I know that if a Manson sold his art he would have to give money to to victims right. But I don't think I don't think I mean my is not right and by the in my character governors fucking hilarious. She's amazing isn't that podcast is fucking great listener but no one ever. She probably gives money to some sort of in this moral like push you know. Why have fun? They're having fun about someone getting murdered there. I will say they're really good about not lie about acknowledge on in certain areas. Now they just they don't. It's not like giggling through rape. Yes it is fun though. They're having more fun right. They're not giggling eraser giggling through murder. I mean it's like that's what I'm saying like me and somebody we're talking about. How often people like you? Can every boat joke about rape women the last time you said to somebody I'm GONNA kill you probably in. LS Four to eight hours. Hey are you joking about murder. We'll know it's absurd so is rape in this context. If I say I'm GonNa rape you right Ukraine. I'M GONNA murder you go. Oh that's hilarious. Yeah where is way more desensitized to murder. We ought to rate yes because of Ame no into true crime. Dogs how I am going to once. I've liked better. Did you watch outside it premiered. Hbo It's Jason Bateman and it's the they adopted the Stephen King novel all right. It's so good. It's so in part or five I fucking HBO. I don't know but they premier two episodes on Sunday. It's it's the watchmen salivating for that. True Crime Great Yeah like I think there's something exploitive about it but I don't think that it's cultural appropriation. I don't think it's cultural vision. But I think it's exploitive. I don't think Netflix paid. Any Ted Bundy's victims for the movie undocumented. They just don't in fact when you you like the Steven. Avery documentary need dating Stephen Every major money. You can't pay too many now you can't. You can't pay the subject of documentaries says Ou ooh the rules. No yes shut. I was the fire festival thing. The reason Hulu and Netflix had different ones. Because Hulu Paid Hulu paid billy and people say was better It was a toss up but it was a toss up Engineers thing. Hey you can't shut the fuck up makes so much sense I mean like Kevin the one I'm doing with Kevin Hart. He's paying for it but he's I mean he's I'm not glorifying him. I don't even know how much it's going to be in it. I'm trying to cut this. How about Neal's he's directing so I told as raw the guy to the? OJ documentary that can was paying for this and it's like it's not a documentary. It was like I don't know what his idea of propaganda. Yeah it's like. It's his ideas so I can't really it's not gonNA glorify him but poor. Ezra doesn't know that goodbye This is a good one and it's apropos and word is the subject. COMEDIANS often counter argue. How they're edgy? racy jokes help help society talk about issues that we generally don't like to talk about that said in twenty ten in two thousand twenty for that matter what exactly can be solved by a white comedian saying the N.. Word Lord Sir as a white comedian. WHO said the N.? Word in public on comedy central and now on I tunes and wherever else Nothing can be solved by saying the N. Word a public and I didn't think I was solving anything when I did say it. I will say say that my feary was the I was talking about my experience with the N. Word Right and And and and it I believe that. Wipe it won't by people talking about race in a funny way is good for racism. It's good for like melting racism. A little bit. I don't think it's massive but I think white kids who grew up on Chris Dave and hip hop and and the the way I did I was completely transformed by Spike Lee. Michael Jordan Murphy like that. Having those people people in your mind is helpful. But we're you and I both know that. There's some levels to comedy here. They're your are an informed culturally informed white dude There's a lot of people who just I don't know any white comedians who were going to say it Lewis said it. Yeah everybody he was set it like has full control of saying and their new reset it onstage publicly is it it onstage publicly Rogin does Rogan. said he had a J- not it was like a bit any said it but it wasn't like disparaging he has actually has a bit where someone went and just took all the time to reset it and played it and he was like. Oh okay. Maybe that but no he just mentioning it. It's not yeah I don't like it. I don't like white people say like I'm like meanwhile I love when I say it again I would. I can make a case that I mean in some ways it was I was just getting by technicality. Yeah like well I write it. which was it's like some kind of right for little bitchy on my part? Yeah but you do right for I've written. I've told I'd say I'd go even further with my raises. I make black people say the N. words so I'm getting the N.. Word out there. I'm forcing I'm controlling controlling the minds. Blackman Tackling Blackman's So there's nothing. Composite is not solving. It did mean Louis saying get help anything no did CHAPELLE show help. Yeah Like did the joke about the white kids getting excited. That the blind white supremacists called them. The Dan word help probably mean Louis. Saint onstage did was a push goodbye What are your thoughts? On the new Chris Rock saw reboot and horror films in general. Do you have any desire to make a horror flick horror films did he do. Chris is Chris was having a meeting meeting with Lionsgate. And he's there was like a saul post on. He's like you know you could make saul movie. That's kind of funny like some. There's like humorless right there number so like and he's like you. There are jokes to be made in these movies. And you WANNA be like all right so they wrote it. They shot it. Oh Yeah thirty him. And Sam Jackson. I think that coming out it's coming. It's coming out. I think they gave it a good date. They gave it like Valentine's sometimes stay. Maybe that's a good movie to see on Valentine's yeah. I think they gave it a good. I'm sorry may fifteenth. So they've made it a summer movie makes sense. I think he'll do pretty good. I don't know I don't know how. How much teeth franchise has left? And that's why they're they all amny hor franchise. Sometimes they do the the like the free goes to New York thing. Yeah the the. What is it lever calling the hood? Exactly just the the switch it up the purge. They've made it about race or the origins of Writing about class in black. Yes so cool. I mean you know I don't I have no. I honestly have no idea what it even looks like. But you have any desire orf like I have a very good idea for a horror movie. I'm the Hor- Quyen. I have a really good idea for one and I don't to me I think Well I'm not going to pitch it on here. 'cause it's too good an idea to like. I pitched Jordan Peele like three years ago and he was like that's a really good. I was like my announced before he made the get out. Yeah Well No. He's production company but again he don't like ring me. ooh ooh lack I but I don't wanNA write a hormone me. I don't want to write a movie it's not. I don't like any of the people I don't like meetings. I think people just sell an idea that someone someone else could make. Oh I should. I mean that was a joke I made that. I wish I made about half ache. When they they're rewriting they're putting half-baked? It's like it took me and David Day. You have somebody else. Take a day income with another movie. Like fucking come on. It took a day. We were twenty three and it took a day. I don't understand what the the sequel aspect. I don't know what could be this. I don't ever going to happen. There was A. I saw a thing on Netflix. Yesterday do you remember over the Damon. Wayans Adam Sandler Movie Bulletproof Love the movie sequel starring you ready for this phase on and Kirk Fox On I've seen it's out. It's on Netflix on Netflix. Starting today or yesterday ice so that is my family. Both those guys like Faiz Fazel is interesting. I mean he's got a lot of interesting ideas okay But but yeah they'll make it business. They make eight hundred. You know what's funny. I saw that and the trailer was like this could have been a different movie. I know well that's the other thing is just make a different. They just call it. They're protected by the intellectual property it. If it doesn't work the go-to sequel boss proven okay. But the bulletproof almost fucks sandwich career. Oh by the way. That's how old I am. I remember when he was in trouble. Evil because bulletproof was the movie he made before wedding singer and it was tank and he'd just gotten far. SNL So he was like am my am I wrong. I never thought I remember a scene where somebody was singing in the shower Damon. Sam Don't think those guys have good chemistry even insight on saying goodbye. You've got mail right so I got a lot of notes about my quote unquote lack of understanding about Dolemite dolemite and parasite You're by the way I think you're adult my parents. I don't even know what that means. So this she comes comes in. She's adult my parents and I could the parasite be the system victimizes the poor to the benefit of largely benevolent indifferent and ignorant upper per class. That they didn't the rich people paid them. The rich people paid them right. A fair wage. There is no uh-huh seen of them trying to lower their fee. There was none of that now. The rich people I someone said that they think it's that no matter matter how wealthy you are like you can never really separate classes. They'll always come fuck. Okay trying to figure out I mean it. Basically like it doesn't matter how successful you are her. How much how much wealth you have you know you can never really like Notice how the walls were very high and they had this very nice life. Still the other classes will come in. You can't really separate yourself from other human human beings no matter how you could if you bought your own food. I mean it's not that hard I know I'm just saying someone else made that point which was not me that was the oh I get got it right. There are all of these like all these counterarguments are very easy to dismiss. Because it's like now there's a bed or there's a way better way to make that point with the same dynamic but if if didn't he say what the point was Boondock I don't know I didn't read it fucking read And then someone tried to explain which is I hate to be the explain to the holly what he didn't get about a movie but you missed the point and Dolemite is my name. The whole movie was made to feel like shit was out of place. The original Dolemite is a classic. I think that I've tried to make my ten year old son watch and I had to apologize halfway. There's no good way. There's no way he could understand. Why the terrible movie is a masterpiece? The goofy montages in overacting as a direct to dolemite and they should be watched in succession to really get the brilliance of these tribute to Rudy. Ray Moore not convinced you've convinced me nothing. I hit my bong and I'm playing two K.. As I listen to you all so if you already knew what I was saying than just no I was trying not trying to be a dick and Bianca what's good with US grabbing a drink ring my ten year old kidding you got the email That's not. What the movie? That's not what the move every scene and DOLEMITE was A. They said we couldn't do this. Let's do that. I'm not talking about the the I'm not talking about the Rudy Ray Moore movies. I'm talking about the Eddie Murphy. Movie was just not a plot wasn't very no it it keeps US Manam. Yeah it's cute and it had momentum but to your point. I don't need every movie to be an allegory..
Martin Scorsese Discusses 'The Irishman'
"Big happening right now is Martin. Scorsese's the Irishman which to me is the best movie that you can see out out there this year and so it's my pleasure to sit here and talk with the man himself. Mr Martin Scorsese. We've taken a field trip. We've come to your screening room tasers. I've seen so many films. Yes and it's always a treat. It's here where you show all the marvel films. Yes yes. I'm getting a bigger screen. It's it's going to exactly exact- pitching the sound system. That God will you get a lot of flack from that. He's do you care the s in the sense that I know those pictures. Some of the people making them To beautiful work and I really mean that I know what goes into that stuff The amount of work the amount of artistry that goes into a lot of it. I just find that ultimately for me. There was concern when I did Irishman for Netflix as possibly Altering or affecting in a negative way to theatrical experience. There is because Netflix only gives you a couple of weeks in about three weeks on this one. The problem here was that I pointed out that that I've made a number of pictures that only last week and a half in the theater. Anyway King of comedy was considered the flop of the year and entertainment it now button. Oh Okay so you said that and also having pointed at that No studio in Hollywood would make the picture. A netflix stepped up and it was a trade off or tradeoff. Have two three four weeks in a theater. Stays in a theater meantime and streamed so this is the way this picture had to be made eight when when issues he does really say. I'm not GONNA do this. Yes they give a reason for it. Yeah in a couple of reasons. There's period of nine years. One of the reasons was who's you know the the gotTa say that it's delicate issue but you know the box offices the names. Oh no well of course you had nobody in it. Well that's Al Pacino. They're saying at this time it really wants to see this kind of thing Having said that having said that there was also the issue that Heft Mo- almost half the picture they younger and they couldn't play younger and then we had the CGI come in And that's costly. That's cost and it was an experiment. You know it was an experiment so afraid of that no I know but but people have to give you money they they they have a right to question Mardi millions of dollars sure. Are you sure. Yeah absolutely but the thing about it too. Is that if that made me then think about what is theatrical experience when I was accused of of endangering at the ethical experience by by making this film at Net flicks And then I looked at the theaters and most of the theaters are playing superhero films. I said so. What's left? Do we have any theaters left for a movie. You know I mean the other movies that fine. It's it's it's not my thing and I I I. I tried over the years to watch some of the stuff and I lost interest a great deal of interest but in any event So at it's time for us to think about what constitutes cinema. Well now the idea that we talked about this over the years the idea of people watching the movie that you've you've made me the Irish epic and size. It just is so to watch it on my phone on my smartphone. That seem very small that I thought I certainly I could make I made a film. I made the past twenty some odd years. I made films both for television and for in terms of the screen size and the theater never for a phone. I don't know how to do it. I wish I could well. You don't have anything they take it and reduce use it so no I don't get it to light and I mean I know but films will be made for phones saying so even if they're not because that's where they can eventually wind up. Well I would suggest if you WANNA see one of my pictures on most films please. Mardi Mardi will phone an IPAD big IPAD. Maybe you know. But the essential thing and it goes to the Irishman to me completely lately. The last time that we talked about this kind of thing was the departed and win the Oscar. It lasts fortnum. Did so on predicting another but you know so what you know if you lose. Iou Twenty five cents so you have to pay up. I know people you know. Go People Deniro you but I still think people unless they have a gigantic screen. Their thing they have then the decision and making to decide to go to the bathroom or tickets his three and a half hours long. Yes so they can say well. I mean yeah I understand that too. I one of the things about a film three and a half hours in what this Netflix venue afforded us was. I wasn't sure about how should I put it. four theaters for home viewing wing Looking at it in sections looking at it for the end looking at the end I and going back to the beginning. It's kind of a picture. I think I find that when and I was running it here in this room I saw you know I have to see the whole thing again to figure out and after the first five minutes I was enjoying watching it now. I'm not saying because all I made it just it was an interesting Interesting a narrative structure and it got me involved each time. And so I I in a funny way I think I made it To cover all the bases in terms of how you can watch this picture. Ideally like you to go to a theater look at it on a big screen from beginning to end and and I know it's long because you gotta get up.

And my most recent book is called radiant health, Asia beauty, a thirty day program for extrordinary health, beauty and longevity. My guest today is Dr. Kisha gazer and this is actually part two of a two part interview. If you did not listen to last week's interview, I strongly encourage you to listen to that. I can get kinda fundation of what we're talking about, but she say double board certified physician in OB GYN and also in maternal fetal medicine. And last week we were talking specifically about, there's been a rise in the ternal deaths in the United States, and we kind of went through the various different factors that are responsible for that. And so this week, what we wanna do kinda get into more details about it and what women can do to really lower the risk of having difficulties with their pregnancies as well as having actually not thriving from from having that. So doctor gave me thank you so much for being on my show. Again, thank you so much for having me again banks. So last week we were talking again, kind of the main thing. Things. I guess that were causing people that have increased maternal deaths and problems. You had mentioned words, obesity is obviously a huge thing. You know, people have diabetes and that kind of thing. And then and then we also talked about the that the main things that people can potentially die from when they have a child from infections, high blood pressure issues, if hemorrhage. So to this week, we just wanna go a little bit more in depth, you know, into these areas and it's like, so if a woman wants to lower risk as much possibly can. What, what are the main kinds of recommendations that you have? Well, certainly in the best of both worlds before you even get pregnant, it will be helpful to go to your provider and have a discussion about, you know, whatever medical cool morbidity that you may have. Which may need to be optimized. If you're diabetic, you need to get your blood sugar in control. Certainly because while you can handle high high blood sugar, your developing fetus cannot and high blood sugar leads to specific congenital abnormalities in the developing fetus primarily affecting their brain and spinal cord their hearts in their legs. So to prevent these things, it's helpful for diabetic women to get their blood sugars and good control. The other thing that diabetics can do prior to becoming pregnant is to take full of gas. It's up limitation full of gas that is very good for fetal brain development. If you are a woman who has had a baby in the past that has had a neural tube abnormality in the neural tube is that progenitor that develops the baby's brain and and spinal cord. So if you've had a baby in the past that have had. That has had despicable nominally certainly again for look, it's up limitation would be benefit to you in the pre conceptual period. That was like routine for everybody, like no matter what like it was in the prenatal vitamins. It is, but for certain subsets, the doctor is going to give you more. You're gonna get an additional, you know, prenatal vitamins have like one milligram folic acid in it for those women that fall into the categories. We're talking about giving them four milligrams daily, so you, it's it's more. Got it. And then what like what other? I mean, of course, always heard a fog acid, you know, from yawns ago about the news editor, are there other vitamins or minerals or supplements that you feel are really beneficial for women while they're pregnant? Seen as you know, I am a high risk doc. I really liked vitamin d vitamin d is good for a whole host of things. First of all, you know, vitamin d is the only vitamin that's made exclusively in the skin, and it's made particularly when you're in sunlight, sunlight helps to promote the census of it in your skin. However, for those women that have color or people who live in cities where you got the high skyscrapers and your endorsed most of the time where you tape taking public transportation, particularly the train underground train, you know, your exposure is low sunlight. So it goes without saying that you're vitamin d levels would be lower to. Now, vitamin d deficiency affects everybody, not not just pregnant women, and you know, I'm gonna. Go into how it's affects pregnant women, but vitamin d is really good for your cardiovascular health for your bone. Development deficiency has been linked to a psychiatric disorders, so therefore it's good for your mental health. So it's, you know, it's not just doing a body good for the pregnant ladies, but for everybody now in my arena, being high risk doc, I see a lot of Preterm labor. So there has been research out there, correlating low vitamin d with an increased risk of Preterm birth. So for all of the ladies that I see in in my office, everybody get screened and if they're values alot, they get supplemented vitamin d is an expensive, and if it can prevent something that will have a high morbidity and mortality, like having a little preemies. And all that goes along with having a premature baby. Then, you know, I'm all for checking levels and supplementing for those ladies that are hypertensive, vitamin d supplementation is as good as well as it can pretty much. I can't say lower, but it will hopefully prevent some poor outcomes from hypertensive disorders in pregnancy. So do you notice I know vitamin d is kind of a tricky thing as far as how much you give. Because you know, years ago we used to say, I take four hundred international units today, and now we know that that's way way too low in somebody who's not pregnant at the kind of normal is about two thousand international. That's what I what I give. Okay. 'cause situations like sometimes when people have you know some sort of chronic illness or you know cancers, it turns out that they'll need way more than that, like, you know, five thousand or something like that. So I was just wondering if pregnancy was a situation like that to where you actually need it a lot more than the normal. Well, I think it depends on what your levels are. You know, anecdotes, you know, I've I've had a few patients that had psychiatric illnesses, and interestingly enough, you know what I've found is these ladies have values of vitamin d in the single digits. Don't I? And I don't know why that is. So for those ladies, I will give, you know, certainly give them more than you know, two thousand day. It'll probably be more like five thousand a day, and then you know what a month or so we'll we'll check their levels to see how you know whether or not that that affords them, you know, a treatment. Working. So the women just curious to the one that you've had that has psychiatric problems and you really low vitamin d levels like the single digits. Now when you get their vitamin d levels up to kind of European range of say, like, you know, forty to sixty or something. Have you noticed that there's an improvement in their mental, you know, it's hard to say because not only are they taking vitamin d, but they're also taking whatever psychotropic medications that the psychiatrists recommending. So if there's any change in baseline, I don't know what that's due to the due to the vitamin d the meds, or is it something that's that's, you know, is it both of them that that and that's hard to gauge. Right, right. Got it. So are there any other like vitamins or nutrients that you think are particularly important? I think you're mega threes are important in pregnancy, a mega threes or really good for heart health, but in practice. Conc-. It's good for fetal brain development. So I would recommend any patient taking prenatal vitamins. Make sure they take a formulation that has those nice magazine. It other sources of Maga's are certainly salmon. Salmon is good for pregnant ladies, and you know, having that nice little fetal brain development. So mega of our, you know, besides helping pregnant ladies good for everybody else protects your heart. And it's a bonus nutrient for patients or people that are sitting dwellers as well air pollution kinda facts mega levels. And so certainly taking the supplementation is really good to help your health. Make it three levels. I generally do recommend that, you know, I am kind of a believer in vitamin supplementation. Certainly, I can certainly provide him in d, your mega IOUs vitamin b. twelve items. See. So those are the main ones that I really kind of inform my patients about simply because of where we're living and the types of exposures that we have vitamin b. twelve, for instance, is beneficial. We, you know, the area that I live in is urban and you know, there are a lot of cars around and various toxins like sulfate and black carbon can affect our cardio vascular system. Vitamin b. Twelve is nutrient that. That keeps the bodies nerve and blood cells. Healthy helps to make the building blocks of who we are DNA. So certainly, you know, it's important to have your level levels check because it'll pollution can affect your levels. And certainly if the vitamin b, twelve is building blocks for basically who we are, it's best to to have that supplements it there, certain people that have a particular type of Nimia call mega blasted anemia. And you see this more so and people that have GI illnesses or had GI surgery. So these people in particular as well. All right risk for vitamin b. Twelve deficiency and supplementation for them is essential. It's not even choice. That's essential. Vitamin c, we all know vitamin c is the saying that we spouse during flu season bills your immune system. Adam helps you to fight off getting colds and so forth. But the other thing about vitamin c. for the ladies out there vitamin c. keeps your skin Dewey and healthy and helps the Bill the collagen and everything in it being a city dweller again with the air pollution, the oxide kind of destroy your vitamin c levels. So you know, pumping a little vitamin c daily certainly is is helpful on many levels recommend. You know, there's various formulate Sion's and so it's hard to gauge which would be the best. I think any formulation over the counter that in the ranges are similar. That would be fine. Do you think I mean, do you recommend like a thousand milligrams a day or do or more than that? It depends. It depends on what what you're dealing with that I would say there's some formulations that are four hundred. There's some formulate at thousand, you know, I have given the four hundred dosage, certainly. If you are in flu season, I might recommend you bump that up. Okay. Anything else that you routinely recommend for women? No, no, you know, from my pregnant ladies are prenatal there Maga's checking those vitamin d levels. If they have certain, you know, GI illnesses or anemic, making sure the vitamin b twelve is is up to par. And during flu season, I do tell them to take extra vitamin c to prevent them from having flew flew in pregnancy or not a good thing together. Do you recommend the flu shots? I do. I do. I really, really do you know this particular winter. I had so many patients in the intensive care unit affected with the flu. I've never seen that. I might have one, you know, during the course of of flu season, but I had double digits this year. I've never seen that. So this particular strain was pretty VERA lint very violent to make. Yeah, to kinda shut down your system and have you one, you know, breathing machine. So yeah, I do recommend it. You know, I'm pregnancy. Your immune system declined. You know it decline. So the flu in a pregnant woman is disastrous. It really is not only as mommy affect the baby's affected too. If mothers oxygenating babies, not gonna oxygenating there. That women stay indoors a lot or minimize commerce. They go out. I mean, particularly enough Lucy's and like that. I think that, you know, if you have gotten your flu shot, you're giving, you know your level of protection, certainly, and taking your your vitamin c. I think that what kind of company and certainly coming since dictated. If there's somebody with the flu, you're not gonna be around them. Yeah, hopefully yeah. yeah.
