Eric Welcomes Author Thomas Sheahen to the Show
"Now. My guest is doctor Thomas. Shein, the book is every win. God, symmetry and time. Doctor Thomas Sheehan. Welcome to the program. I'm very pleased to be here, Eric, thank you for having me on. Well, listen, this is your title is beautiful. Every win is just, it's kind of like this mystical. It's almost, it seems like Tolkien came up with it or something like that. But before we get into God's symmetry and time, I want people to know who you are. So look, you got your degrees, your PhD from MIT, which is that's a community college, I believe, on the outskirts of Boston, right? Massachusetts institute of technology. You've done so much over the years that I don't know really where to start. You've co authored reports on things like rocket reentry instrumentation for Bell Labs. What years were you at Bell Labs, my goodness? It was during the Vietnam period from 66 to 73. And the best use of my talent in those days was to use my scientific knowledge to advance our defenses in our country. Well, I want to say that Dietrich bahnhof was fiance, Maria van vadem, Meyer, worked at Bell Labs. I think she may have been there at the end of your tenure. She ran a whole department there. She died very young of cancer in 1977. But it's perfectly possible that she was there when you were there. I had to ask
Frank Turek Describes How 'Lord of the Rings' Points to God
"Let's talk about Lord of the Rings. Have you seen lord of the things? I haven't seen it. But the orcs scared me. So I was my face was in the cushions for most. The orcs are like the wicked witch and Wizard of Oz, right? Yeah, you don't want to. But think about the biggest heroes in Lord of the Rings are the weakest characters. I mean, Sam and Frodo are three foot hobbits who would rather stay in the Shire eat 7 meals a day and drink beer. They're not the kind of people that are going to save middle earth from Sauron. They're just not going to do it, but they're the ones that do it. Why? Because Tolkien being a Christian said, when you're weak, you are strong. And so Sam and Frodo had to had to rely on others to help them in order to pull off the unthinkable that they were going to get through more door and put the ring in the volcano and all that. And somehow they did it because when they were weak, they relied on others. Well, I guess I should say, I'm not surprised that J.R.R. Tolkien would write this epic fantasy that would point to God. But it's worth talking about that more and then talking about the movies, the stories that were not written by Tolkien, which is, to me, it's even more fascinating because he got this stuff as he was doing it. I think a lot of these Hollywood screenwriters, they don't have a clue that when you tell a good story, you kind of can't help point to
'Defender of the Faith' Author Joseph Pearce Shares His Story
"Story. You've been on the program before, but we have many new listeners who, first of all, they're wondering, what is that lovely accent? Where do you live now? What is your story? How did you come to be who you are today, which is to say a writer of many books and a man of deep Christian faith. Well, I mean, I told the story, Eric in a book called race with the devil, my journey from racial hatred to rational love. But in a nutshell, I, as a very young man, there's a 15 year old to be precise, what involved with white supremacist politics. I was very anti Christian, very anti Catholic, and very secular, and sort of worshiped that secular fundamentalism of Adolf Hitler. So it was through the reading, first of all, of writers such as G.K. Chesterton, who as you can see behind me there still looks after me like a guardian angel. It was a reading of Chester Turner bell or C. S. Lewis and J.R.R. Tolkien and some of his great Christian figures that led me away from the darkness and that coupled with a spiritual healing, which I didn't even understand until I could look back in retrospect. This miraculous healing coupled with the reason that I was receiving from these great Christian writers that led me away from the abyss and really my life since my conversion has been one of gratitude for that conversion and a desire if you like to make up for all the bad things I did prior to my conversion by trying to live a good and faithful life and bring other people to the truth of Christ. And where did you
Caught up in Gods Epic
"Some stories don't satisfies best because there's no conclusion or injustice evil succeed great epochs such as tolkien's lord of the rings stare our imagination and touch our in our longings for a better world. We don't want epics like these. To end. We become involved with the characters and the plot but they do and and we have to come back to earth significantly in a world. That is crying out for identity. This very really interesting. The story of family forebears or culture. The bible has been described as the greatest story of told but it is an epic with a difference for it's set in the context of real events. Consider the opening lines of the letter to the asians in one long sentence from i three through fourteen week. Limps gods or inspiring epic his plan and purpose to draw us into it.

Meet The Author, Shane Wilson, Realistic Fantasy With A Sharp Edge
"To the big program as i mentioned. It's a an episode of meet the author. Shane wilson is storytelling. No matter the medium. The emphasis of his work is on the magical act of the story and how the stories we tell immortalize us and give us give voice to the abstractions of the human experience. Ladies and gentlemen please open the ears open minds and help me welcome in whoop. Waco shane wilson to the my duck pakistan. Welcome thank you so much. Thanks for being here. Now it's a pleasure so get get me hip two way our way are you are 'cause i'm not sure i know you're a southern guy. Are you giorgia I'm curly in north carolina. You know what i said. That and i don't know why i said that last night but then i was questioning myself. This is why. I asked you this at first up last night. I said it was raised in georgia. Sir right. I read your bio that you i believe born in alabama raising in georgia but i said last night on the air i said i. It's north carolina guy. And then i looked it up today and i was like no. I'm wrong. he's not where they get those carolina from now you just said it. So where did i get it from. It's not online anywhere that fact. I'm getting it actually. You might be psychic. In which case mybookie dot com is definitely a place for you but yeah i mean i feel like somewhere in the bio somewhere in all of the information out there. It probably says that. I teach college in north carolina which is true. Well i did not see. I wasn't aware of that. So you're you what are you. Teaching kalki teach english literature music. I teach composition creative writing that kind of thing very cool stuff so Tell me a little bit about yourself. How how when you kind of got the author bug. We'll start with the author stuff. Then we'll come back to the music little later on but tell me when you when you first realized the way that it should be thing Because i think i've been writing forever I i'd be hard pressed to find a moment in in my life. At least i actually remember when i wasn't writing I remember my parents buying me. An old typewriter When i was just a little kid. And i remember like i would practice spelling on it. i would ask my mom to spell for me like the the most complex words i can think of a kid it was stuff like rhinoceros right and i would ask you to spell it and then i would like pick it out and so i was practicing already getting kind of the bug and then i remember like second grade. I would write these short stories and just handwriting out. I'd put them in a one of those three prong folders and then i would draw cover and glue it on the front Like saw i was already thinking about book design and stuff even though i wasn't cognizant of that right and so yeah like from the from the jump right in has been a part of me and the through. I think the evolution is pretty similar to a lotta guys that are that are writers in that you know middle. School comes along. And now i'm writing poetry in order to hit on girls And the same kind of thing in high school. And then you get when i got into college. The academic spirit kind of squashed some of that creativity as it will do And then on the other side of college. I slowly started to chip away that published some poetry some short stories and then accidentally wrote a novel while There's a lot to respond to their. But i i'm i'm smiling because i thought i'm going to say this now even though i wanted to say this for a little bit later in the conversation but I thought when i saw romance and fantasy stuff betsy kinda stuff that either A guy who's a player trying to impress women or gate would well you know The the romance stuff is is very light. In in most of what i write every now and then i will dip a toe into that sandbox. Because i think and and i don't write traditional romance. When i do that i write stuff that kind of turns genre upside down or i try to. Because ultimately i think romance is kind of trite and empty void of a genre So when i when. I do play over there. I like to to try to get in. Turn it in on itself. A little bit But for the most part the fantasy stuff is it comes from The my academic focus. When i was at school. I studied a ton of magical realism. I had a professor who is very into that genre and sir My master's thesis was on salman rushdie and midnight's children And all that stuff so yeah so like i was reading a ton of magical realism. And so i don't write. What would be considered hard. Fantasy like tolkien. And those guys right fantasy this grounded in our reality but there are magical elements at play.
What are the key factors in executing the digital marketing for tourism and hospitality
"For the last two episodes we have had a very vivid discussion about though wise. And what and today. of course it's going to be a little fun. Talk about the how part. I am with my guest on his head of eat. Tourism research at the university of eastern finland. So welcome you come again. High gripe to be here. This is the last episode. And i'm i'm really excited to get the opportunity to discuss these things about digital marketing with you again. It's it's been great so far. I'm really looking forward all of this episode. Well it's been a great learning experience for me. Also we are sort of. All of us are students because things are changing. If it's minute by minute but so quickly that we have to be able to be nimble and reactive on. What's happening around us. And i think that's where this how part of our feet series comes into the question so let's stocked with them. The point maybe the digital marketing tourism start from motto. Sora help us understand what are the first steps to consider. And and i think this episode bills quite nicely on top of the previous two episodes so we gone through how how the company mission the strategy actually should drive digital marketing. So all the decisions that you do in digital marketing should be. You should be able to connect them with your strategy and your mission and what you're doing bought it to say that it's also possible to do great business without that much thinking abou- strategies and missions. And if you are just able to provide a great customer experience and you are really good at sales and marketing you have all the possibilities to do fantastic basis and and being being able to be a successful With being really good at understanding your business model. But i think everything starts with the customer. So if you don't understand your customer and if you don't have this custom perspective on your own business Then it's it's getting really difficult to be to be successful. Doodoo business that that succeeds and think many times that that is a major issue with with businesses that they are so focused on what they have and how they can sail that while they have instead of looking at customers and understanding the customers one than what the customers need in. How else can be resold or hail wave. What will the company has a not just what we have at this moment but also thinking outside the box and looking at different ways to better serve the needs of of of a customer not alone and not relying just on what we have but also looking for new partnerships and new kind of marketing channels and and all different kinds of options. If you have this customer perspective on your business in are able to put yourself in in customers shoes. I think that's. That's the first. I've where wherever everything about marketing should should be built upon when when we are starting to think the channels and the messages and everything being able to put yourself in in the customer's shoes is fantastic skill to have and also is it so the two should be very specific about to your audiences and who you are. Who are you. Why are you servicing. I have noticed that people tend to get limit wide. They want to go all over the place rather than kind of laser focused on this. And then as you mentioned that the solving the problem i always is only interested in that. Solve the problem that they have not about your product right now so people are typically not interested about companies. People are interested in themselves and watson there for mia and businesses have to figure this out. That's how they tolkien communicate with customers. In last episode we talked about focusing on the benefits that the customer receives instead of the attributes of all we are a whole that will be our restaurant or or who we are as as a destination

I wanted to ask you. What led you to tell. The story about one of the giants of literature journey actually starts already when i was twelve or thirteen when i first lord rings and it was a time of my life when i was at that time growing with father who i got to know late in my lesson and i was bullied and i was quite alone so those stories team stories became my friends and i was kind of an outsider outside at that time and then finding friends eventually and finding certain communities so clubs those become very poor became very important to me and then you know fast forward so ds later. I Reading about about his life and an understanding that he actually those stories that i read at a time in my life when i felt like an outsider needed friendships and fellowships.

I want to tell the story about. Yeah very interesting. And what was the decision and kind of grounding in one setting in one thousand nine hundred sixteen and then telling the story in flashbacks. Well it drives about research in terms of because there's not that much documentation he. He was very open in his letters. Yeah he would speak about many things. But not really about the war. And the letters post-war have nothing released which means that there must be something there that you know are we are not allowed you see or you know or read about his personal and emotions and of course. It's a trauma understandable. You know it's traumatic era you into the warded supposed to end all wars and basically all of your friends die and i think that that kind of open up that it's it's the tragedy in the fall down of this fellowship that he must have experienced emotionally. Which then i can read through. You know these stories in his mythologies it was always very adamant that war wasn't an direct allographs delegate elliott gory or inspiration. These stories which is true. You know most likely it's mythologies and you but he's definitely taken emotional experience from that war experience. I kind of approach it through a dream. You know what he's if token dream..

"Sean is a wacky feature for us here, I think yes, the Internet says presented us with anti depressants or talking. I will give you a word, and you must tell me if it is an antidepressant Pharmaceutical or a J. R R. Tolkien character, most famous for the Lord of the Rings trilogy. So before we get into that, and that's a hilarious idea. It's weird that you mentioned that and then I walked out of the room and then I was looking at this news feature. And it had this cartoon token versus Lewis. How does Sean mention talking? All of a sudden I see a cartoon with token in it, but it's um And the first part of the cartoon. It says Professor Tolkien. Is it true that you wrote your novels is an allegory for the first World War And he says, Never ask me that again. I will call the police. And then C s. Lewis's below him, and it says, And he's thinking to himself looking sad if even one person reading this does not understand that the big line is Jesus, I'll set myself on fire. So what's interesting about that is I'm in the midst of reading Chronicles of Narnia with my son, which I've never read before The lion got introduced for a book One in The Lion is introduced just last night. Never crossed my mind that it's Jesus. It's Jesus as land is Jesus, Yes. Okay. Yeah. When was I supposed to figure that out? Was I supposed to already figured that out when you're ready? Yeah, then or if not, then in the book club discussions and never never even thought about it course I've never. I've never liked metaphor in book. I just I don't know I was serious if you've ever received a metaphor from a book No Don't have hated that since I was a little kid, and they taught us about it in school. I always thought it was stupid. But you're okay with talking line. Just be what it is. I want everything to just be what it is and leave it there. Why didn't call you old? Simple Jack again. E don't like it. I'm not looking for your metaphor. I don't need a damned allegory. If you want something to be. Jesus, haven't be Jesus to you. Do you believe, just for instance, that George Orwell's animal Farm is just about animal husbandry? Booking about agriculture, talking pigs, Right form life. I didn't get anything from it except the pigs. They'll bite you if you're not careful. So now I gotta go home tonight when we're reading the book and saying the lions Jesus don't mind explain that to the kids. I would have never thought of that. Yeah. Shall we just go on with the game? Joe? I don't but anyway, So what is the name of this game again? Anti depressants or talking, Okay. Why do you say like an old key? Which ones? Did he write? He wrote the Hobbit books Lord of which I was forced to freaking read in college, and I hated every second of wonderful books. Everybody loves him there. A ring is a matter for your particular power. Oh, God nor dill. It is That's that's one theory. Yeah, the one power to rule them all That could be the you know, in the wrong hands destroys the entire world. That makes sense. You know, that didn't know that, did you? Gonna pretend I know what I didn't know it. They get again the talking lions in those books, But they got that weird little fella. Gollum. He's scary nor deal And they are D I e. L Nord. L think I know that that's a drug, but it certainly could be a token character. Hey, I was gonna vote draw, right. So we go in and we had that is correct on they have the actual chemical name for now. We don't need to do all that. All right. How about one more? One more? Rascal, If yes, k a l I t h This is way harder than I thought it was gonna be It sounds like one of them. Squatty little fellas with the acts that the red dwarf Gimli guy squatty little fellow with an ax. Yeah, just his character. Oh, no. This was a medication used to treat manic depressive disorder or bipolar. Then squatting nous. You know, I actually like to the Lord of the rings movies with my life and I first got together. She she had me because I've never seen him. We watched all of it. It was a total of 10 hours to watch all three hours throwing in 10 hours you're doing with lights or the work's too scary thinks they're definitely too scary. For my youngest. My older son could watch it and would like it, But we still got 31 superhero movies to watch.

Dmitri Dolgov: Waymo and the Future of Self-Driving Cars
"When did you first fall in love with robotics or even computer science more general computer science. I at a fairly young age. Robotics happened much later. I think my first interesting introduction to computers was in the late eighty s When we got our first computer. I think it was an an. Ibm i think ibm at. Remember those things that had like a turbo button in the frontier precedent. You'll make make the thing goes faster. Did they already have floppy disks. Yeah the the the five point four inch once. I think there's a bigger inch so good when something than five inches and three inches. I that was five. Maybe before that was the giant plates than it didn't get that but it was definitely not the not the three inch ones anyway so that you know we got that computer. I spent the first Few months just know playing video games as you would expect. I got bored of that So i started messing around and trying to figure out how to make the thing. Do other stuff got into Exploring programming and a couple of years later. It got to a point where i actually wrote a game. A lot of games and game developer japanese developer actually offered to buy it from me for a few hundred bucks. But you know for for a kid in russia. The big deal. It's a big deal. Yeah i do not think the deal well integrity. Yeah i instead Pity use those not the most acute financial move that i made my life looking back at it now. I i the reason i put it online. was what would you call. It was freeware. think right. it was not open source. But you could upload the binary that would put the game online idea was that people like it and then they you know contributing to send you a little donations rate so quick math of forcing them thousands and millions of people are gonna play my game couple of bucks a piece. You know definitely do that as i said not. Not the best way to raise about business models remember. What language was programming that was scale which what pascal pasco and had a graphical component did text based. It was like I think there are three hundred twenty by two hundred whatever it was. I think the early resume resume. And i actually think the reason why this company wanted to buy does not like the fancy graphics or the limitation. Those maybe the idea Of actual game but the idea the campaign one of the things i. It's so funny. I used to play this game. Called golden axe and the simplicity of the graphics and something about simplicity of music. Like it's still haunts me. I don't know if that's a childhood thing. I don't know if that's the same thing for call of duty these days for young kids but i still think that the games are simple. That simple purity makes four allows your imagination takeover and thereby creating a more magical experience like now with better graphics. It feels like your imagination doesn't get to Create worlds which is kind of interesting I it could be just an old man approach waving kids these days. That have no respect. But i still think that graphics almost get in the way of the experience i dunno flippered letter. I don't know the case closed. I don't yet but that that's more games at up like it's more like tetris. World where they optimally masterfully create a fun short term dopamine experience versus a more referring to like role playing games. Where there's like a story you can live in it for months or years. like There's an elder scrolls series which is probably my favorite settled games thousand magical experience that the graphics terrible the characters were all randomly generated It pulls you in. There's a story. It's like an interactive version of an elder scrolls. Tolkien world

"Cover many bad films here. There are a couple of reasons for that. But Prime among them is that Jim find doesn't hold a gun to my head saying you've got to review this big tent pole release or anything like that. But if I don't finish the film Don't review it. The corollary to that is that if I'm having problems with the film, but I watch it to the end. It's because there's something in it that makes me at least want to see if the filmmaker is leading me. Toward a worthy destination. The new Swedish slush Danish horror film Coco de Coco. Data now available on demand is ah, very unpleasant experience. Ah husband and wife Tobias and Aylin played respectively by Leif Edlund and Ylva Gallon. Go on a camping trip. This is several years after their young daughter has died in a particularly devastating fashion and the parents grief has over time. Curdled into grievance, quite bitter and vindictive grievance. In fact, in the woods, they are accosted in the middle of the night by three people. A man dressed as a carnival Barker Ah woman who looks like a grown up zombified Wednesday, Adams and a man dressed either as a farmhand or a roustabout. I'm not sure Carrying the petrified corpse of what appears to be a dog to the sweet chorus of Children singing and especially morbid song, the titular Coco de Coco Donna. Aylin is attacked and killed, two biases cornered and appears to be the next sacrifice. And then the action stops time rewinds and the sequence repeats. And even though the details events very from one repetition to the next, the woman's role as victim and the man's craven cowardice are only underlined. I'm not a big fan of films with the filmmaker takes a cynical, ironic pleasure in showing people being statistically tortured. I stuck with Jordan Peale's US on Lee because I had confidence that there was a point Peel wanted to make. And I kept watching Coco de Coco Donna because I could see the director Johannes Ni home was bringing considerable skill to depicting this particular slice of horror. And I wanted to see if he could justify the anguish. And it turns out he could Central sequence is book ended by two heartbreaking metaphorical sequences told in shadow puppetry and the film ends with the temporal spell being broken by a particularly brutal catharsis. And getting through. To that end, I realized that in the structuring and the unsparing cruelty Ni home had taken me through years of grief. Anger and bitterness in the short span of 90 minutes. Coco de Coco. Donna is a rough film to get through. But if you can brave it, its impact is profound for hour of the wolf. I'm getting persons. Thank you, Dan. We are about to hear part one of what has become an annual tradition for hour of the wolf Barracks cells is reading of the Council L run by J. R. R. Tolkien. To be precise, is his chapter two of book to volume One of the Lord of the Rings. We chose this particular chapter because it is largely self contained. He did not need to know much about Tolkien, the book or the movie to follow this story. It is the first time all of our protagonists have gathered, and each one tells their story of how they came to Rivendell l run stronghold. Aired, had a remarkable voice and style of narration, and his association with Professor Token made him the perfect choice to do this reading. We recorded it in late 1971. The producers were myself Marco Adler and engineer David Marx, who was probably our foremost token scholar outside of Cyril's. This entire reading runs 90 minutes, So we will hear part one this week and will end the year next Saturday morning at 7 A.m. with the conclusion The Council of Elrond. Next day photo woke early, feeling refreshed and well, he walked along the terraces above the loud flowing, brewing in and watch the tail. Cool sound rise above the far mountains and shine down slanting through this thin silver mist. Due upon the yellow leaves was glimmering on the woman nets of gossamer twinkled on every bush. Sam walk beside him, saying nothing but sniffing the air and looking every now and again with wonder and his eyes of the great heights in the East. Snow was white upon their peaks. On a seat cut in the stone beside to turn in the path that came upon Gandalf and Bilbo deep and talk. Well, good morning, said Bilbo feeling ready for the Great Council. I feel ready for anything entered proto, But most of all, I should like to go walking to Dan explore the Valley. I should like to get into those pine woods up there. He pointed away, far up the side of Rivendell to the north. You may have a chance later, said Gondo, But we cannot make any plans. Yet. There is much to hear and decide today. Suddenly as they were talking a clear single bell rang out. That is the warning bell for the Council of Elrond cried Gondo. Come along. Now Both you and Bilbo are wanted. Photo and Bilbo followed the wizard quickly along the winding path back to the house behind them uninvited and for the moment, forgotten, trotted, Sam. And I'll lead them to the porch where Crowder had found his friends the evening before. A lot of clear Autumn morning was now glowing in the Valley.

An Excerpt from the book Flirting with Darkness by Ben Courson
"An excerpt from the book flirting with darkness. Ben. Carson. Weapon number three, the magic number of greatness. I got to a point in my struggle with depression where something needed needed to change must suffering. So badly, I finally decided to do something about it. The ten thousand hour rule saved my life. His Book Outliers Malcolm Glad well demonstrated that to be truly greeted anything. You have to put in ten thousand hours of practice. People such as world chess champion Bobby. Fischer businessman Bill Joy, and IBM founder Bill Gates are among the many examples. Glad. While gives of people who excelled because they accelerated they focused and worked hard and gave at least ten thousand hours to becoming the best at what they did. Glad will show that whether you want to be a fiction writer or master criminal. Hockey player or a pianist ten thousand hours was the magic number of greatness. Bent my mind to that goal is a writer Manspeaker. A resolved to stop wasting my energies, processing psychological trauma and to go on a diametrically opposed direction. Instead of disappearing over why dreams weren't coming to pass, I decided to commit myself to working my fingers to the bone to ensure they did. Psychologists, John Hayes quote looked at how long it took the best composers of all time to create their first grey work. He found that nobody including Mozarts was a child prodigy had produced a piece of work of any significance until about ten years after they had I, taken music no amount of innate talent even in a field of genius such as music could overcome the years of practice necessary to Korea work someone may be talented. They may be lucky but they still have to go through ten years of practice in order to become a master and quote. When Churchill came to power during World War Two he said this as he was being inaugurated into office as prime. Minister quote. I. Offer you nothing save blood, toil tears, and sweat and quo. Lecture Chill Ready to go to battle anew, the path will be difficult PROC- ready to claim own finest hour. Getting better stars, which is getting off your tuition in doing something. So I did. My goal was to become a writer and a speaker put in the needed hours. My nearly worked myself to death, but it was infinitely better than brooding found the effort. Cathartic in fulfilling my spirit's began to lift. I figured I had two options number one either get discouraged that my dreams were not coming pass or number to spend the effort of getting prepared for when they did. Legendary preacher Charles spurgeon advised students to stop worrying about when they would get their shot at speaking and concentrate instead on their ability, and they'll let God take the opportunity in other words quit fretting over the how and focus on the what I took these words to heart and focused on my skill set as I improved my craft, our English word amateur comes from a French Italian an line route which means to love an obvious works when he loves the process and it feels good a professional is someone who worked seven days a week whether he feels like it or not. Today. My TV show hope generation is on twenty different networks more than one hundred and eighty countries and radio shows heard on more than four hundred stations daily. I get to speak in stadiums and arenas. My quote unquote overnight success came through hours of hard work. How you'll spend your ten thousand hours may be different from how I spend mind but you'll find as I did a clear focus and a way of getting off the existential treadmill of despair, transform your life but the age of twenty one, the average American has put ten thousand hours of practice into computer and video games when I use those hours for something more productive. How hard you hustle in the darkness determines how brightly you shine in the spotlight. To prepare for speaking to people I got really good at lecturing my furniture. My chairs were my captive audience I remember that Billy Graham. One said he got his start by preaching to alligators before he preached in stadiums. You have to start with a small stuff and work your way up. So I took every opportunity that presented itself. I spoke to classes of little kids and homeless shelters at old folks, homes, and to student clubs I volunteered to take the opportunities. Others turned down, I got lots of practice. When other speakers turned an organization or church down my said, yes I did this I several years Only the small minded person will refuse the small task for me if I had an audience of four people those enough to get some more practice to put in some more hours toward my ten thousand our goal. Jesus said that if you're faithful and a few small things, you'll be given responsibility over bigger ones Matthew Twenty five that sound good to me. Yes sometimes I did feel like surface the tragic here of Greek mythology who had to roll a boulder of a hill only to see roll back down then roll it back up again only for it to roll back down again repeatedly, I'll stubborn in my pursuit it was a great weapon against despair to keep working in spite of how I felt, which puts me in the mind of a scene from Tolkien's the Lord of the Rings in the First Book of that trilogy the Fellowship of the Ring, a band of warriors is commission travel to the ends of the Earth to destroy the evil ring of power by casting it into mount doom. During their long journey. Gandalf who was their leader was thought to be killed in the minds of Maurya in response airborne stepped up to lead the band in his stead amid his grief and despair he cried out farewell Gandalf what hope have we with you then he turned to the fellowship and said, we must do without hope let us gird ourselves and weep no more come. We have a long road. Like that trek to mount doom healing is usually a long journey. We normally don't start feeling better overnight sometimes, we must go on when we feel absolutely no hope. Our quest leads down a winding path and his sometimes fraught with trolls and Goblins and all manner of Dr Treasures. But psychological heroism is possible in such journey is were taking like Eric Gordon Frodo my set my foot upon my own path out of depression I gave them my flirtation with darkness and began to tread the road toward a grand purpose and it worked after many many years. The Dreams I had begun to despair finally came true new ones came into sight, but it all began by putting one foot in front of the other. If you allow yourself to just sit around and partly catatonic state stuffing yourself with junk food is a form of therapy and watching callous hours of television. You'll probably never start feeling better. But I. Tell You that you get off the couch and venture into the world to do something toward your goals. Things will start to change in your heart and mind if you pull yourself out of bed and get going on your dreams, that's how you'll will begin the journey to healing your broken spirit.

Of course, it does really am hit home when you said that because. I. Do feel that there isn't enough of a conversation around supporting women. The fact that it isn't just straightforward hits. It's something that you almost think, oh, you know able to because you can't practice breastfeeding is not something you are. You don't describe a baby you can't actually cut it on a practice.

J R R Tolkien got a great deal of scientific love in the form of a beetle, a crustacean to wasps and clamp. In addition to the false headed mall Eric Theis Brosse, Hitchhiker's guide author Douglas Adams has an aunt named for him. But does that make it an Adam ant? I'll see myself out. There's also a triple fin fish named fewer to fix this slutty Bart fast easy. It should go without saying that there is a great overlap between the love of science and the Levers of science fiction and other things Geeky.

This week's review comes from Trish. I carry this book with me wherever I go. I happily stumbled upon the your brain on facts podcast about a year ago and I fell head over heels in love with it mocks way with words or soothing voice and that awesome brain overflowing with knowledge can make the most mundane topic for example, a whole episode on mud exciting to learn about. As. Soon as she shared her secret project this fantastic book I knew she would once again amaze me teach me and entertain me. She totally delivered I was so happy to see a few of my favorite episode topics, physician test thyself surprise polyglot and Rita Rambo. This book as the tagline perfectly states is about things you didn't know things you thought you knew and things you never knew you never knew and you won't want to keep it to yourself either I keep stopping to share cool facts with anyone that will listen. Thank you Moxie Labou for creating this wonderful world of knowledge.

The scientific name for a prehistoric Mammal Dino he's Hollandi translates to Holland is a terrible pig. Not Place Holland, but the director of the Carnegie Museum wj Holland. He was an eminent zoologist and paleontologist and a bit of a blowhard and apparently quite difficult to work with. The staff and his students just hated him. He had a bad habit of stealing credit for his students work, and that's why he is immortalised as a giant pig. In the modern era, it's not uncommon for scientific institutions to sell or raffled off the naming rights of newly discovered animals especially environmental groups and conservation organizations who are chronically underfunded. This was the case in Medea National Park in Bolivia. In an effort to raise money,.
Volcanoes of Life
"Hey welcome to stuff to blow your mind. My name is Robert Lamb, and I'm Joe McCormack in today, we're going to be talking about something that I've been thinking about doing an episode on for a while ever since I read an article while back that really interested me, and that is the surprising and kind of counterintuitive link that has been proposed by many geologists now between life as we know it. It on earth and the fires of Mount Doom, specifically, the the most violent and scary of geologic processes like volcanic eruptions on the movement of tectonic plates. Yeah. This is a great topic to get into. We kind of had a I guess a preamble to this a couple of episodes ago when we were talking about eggs and we talked about the volcano birds and the idea of a volcano being seeming. Almost. Paradoxically to be something that can nourish. As opposed to something. That's just a purely destructive force. Oh, I. didn't think about that comparison at all. But yeah, the the way that the volcanic sand babysits the egg for for the megapode so that it can just run off and do its own thing. Yeah. Raised by a volcano. But so I thought a great place to start here might be with a brief reading from volusia. It is a famous old norse epic poem from the collection that is known as the Poetic Edda. Now, this is a synonymous work. The author is unknown, but the volusia tells the story of the norse Gods culminating in their destruction in the fiery doom of Ragnarok can I'm just GonNa read a couple of Quad trains here. In Anger Smites, the water of the earth forth from their homes must all men flee nine paces fares the son of Jurgen and slain by the serpent fearless. He sinks the Sun. Turns Black Earth sinks in the see the hot stores down from heaven or world fierce gross. The steam and the life feeding flame till fire leaps high about heaven, itself Nice and one fun thing about this poem. It's bit of Tolkien Trivia Robert Tell me if you've heard this before, but the name of the wizard Gandalf that first appeared in Tolkien's. Tolkien's the Hobbit and then of course, the best character in Lord of the Rings, the name of Gandalf comes from the Veloce token, actually borrowed the name from a section known as the tally of the dwarves from this epic poem. Originally, he was going to apply it to the character in the Hobbit, who became thorn oaken shield the leader of the Dwarf Party. But then he decided later on that, it made more sense to apply the name of Gandalf. The wizard. I think because again, Dal means something like magic staff l.. and. I think he made the right choice like, Gandalf. That makes more sense for the wizard than for Thorin. Think. So but cool thing that happens in this poem sort of part of the RAGNAROK. Myth is that there is a rebirth that follows this fiery doom know after the fire leaps high heaven and the Kingdom of the Gods is destroyed. Earth is not just left in cinders instead, there is a renewal from the fire and the author writes now do I see the earth new Rizal Green from the waves again, the cataracts fall and the Eagle flies and And Fish, he catches beneath the cliffs. So there's this great link between Fiery Cataclysm and rebirth and renewal of life in norse mythology, and and of course, you know these are symbolic elements. I'm not suggesting that they had some kind of scientific insight with this is something that I think is taken as a metaphor largely about human life itself, but coincidentally, it ends up kind of ringing true with things. We're finding out about geology and nature. Well, it's something you see in a lot of different mythological cycles, right I. mean you see it in Hindu mythology? In. Various. American mythologies. Thinking about. Meslin. South America in particular society that things will rise things will fall that there will be cataclysm that whole world will be destroyed, but new worlds will rise out of them and have risen out of them before. Yeah. I was thinking about themes of fiery eruption in the greening of the earth together or sort of a creator destroyer duality. One that came to my mind that that I thought, you might know something about because I know I've heard you talk about Hawaiian mythology before was the Palay myth. Yeah. Yeah. The Hawaiian got his Palay is an interesting example, a deity of fire and Volkan Ism I was reading a book titled Pay Volcano Goddess. Goddess of Hawaii by H are low nemo, and he points out that when Polynesian voyagers I arrived in Hawaii, they brought their gods with

Tolkien Talk with super fan Helen
"Talked about people reading Lord of the Rings and you latched on. But somebody didn't. Why should somebody read Lord of the rings versus maybe some other fantasy? Like game of thrones or the wheel time series or Shinohara or some of those other other fantasy books. I I think. That tolkien's writing is really easy to follow. And so that's a good way to good reason to start anyway. Especially with the Hobbit I mean the hub is even better like intro book to it because it was actually written for children so it actually it. Even though the story is very rich in an amazing it was written as a good entry into the genre and same thing with Lord of the Rings. They're written in a way. That is relatable. Even if it's not really your favorite style of writing or your you know your favorite elves and dwarves and ghosts in hobbits does not your thing. It's it's an easy read to do. Like if I compare it to another series of I'm really familiar. With like game of thrones that's also written simply enough with there's so many characters there's so much going on but it's Kinda hard to follow him and you have to. I know this person you have to have charts and maps and who's related to. Who would how are they related? No my gosh. Oh yeah this is so and so's cousin and you don't need all that to read Lord of the Rings you can just enjoy the story at. It's a good story too so it's easy to follow. And I think this is a good series you re because if you do continue reading you can understand how other fantasy writers were influenced by this series as watching this happen awful. That washing my kids watch kind of what I call reverse order where they watched they read and watch Harry Potter. And then they wash Lord of the Rings Dame. Things token is stealing from from Oh my gosh you're names Puckett in my head. I'm Harry Potter author. Anyway they think that Vicky Rolling Rolling thank you they think that Tolkien. Still Rolling Sweetie. He wrote this book like in the forties. She wasn't able to live yet. She is getting influenced from him. And so I think that it's important just to have this as your baseline so that you understand where the where the inspiration references come from because almost every fancy writers got something that can be traced back to being inspired by Lord of the Rings. Oh yeah some people have always some modern authors said actually if Tokyo and try to ride that today Lord of the Rings today a problem we wouldn't get published because a lot of people view like you said it takes too long to get out of the Shire and people today kind of like a little more fast paced storyline. But I didn't find it that I thought it was very intriguing. One that's no means the world building part. I mean if you read again just doing comparisons but you know if you read the sorcerer's stone or a game of thrones which is the first book in the Song of Ice and fire theory series. There's a lot of world building that takes place in both of those because you've got to create this baseline you've got to show the people. This is what the world looks like and so when you read the fellowship of the Rings you're getting a lot of world building which for some people can feel a little tedious but it's necessary to live at groundwork. Churn some people you know the Council of L. Ron where they're talking about these these worms in the desert and going into a lot of history and stuff get a little lost and I'm like no. That was actually more intriguing for me. I was like they're talking about this big dragon. There's this other dragon named skater. And what is all this other stuff? This Ansari stuff but that's why people love the Appendices. You talked about the appendices to people. Just love that.

So John Welcome to daily discussions the live version of it. Hey going today. Yeah great thanks. Yeah thanks thanks. Have a pleasure to be Walsum. Awesome and before we started doing a share away from and What you position at the moment yes. Sure so I'm almost from bitter a country which is sort of at central west Queensland Basically at in there in the middle in Iway significant sought for people so add sort of special spring show. Why at that? Why yet really? I still don't know where that is a bit here. It's about eight hours north west of Brisbane. Yeah Wow so wrought out and you said the cultural significance. How high are we talking? These ranges in a huge this this tearing Ryan said there that sort of some a couple of hundred meters above sea level in yes. I ended up work at their that.

Esca the mold New Way to go in and had explosive in a new way to go in terms of that. It's risky. I'm yet that that last last week. Still sought still being developed in an explode today. Yes incredible now. I've got three strains on hassle. I can always look at what other stuff. You've been doing a lot easier on. Usually just tolkien. I'd take notes but having the technology makes it a so much more convenient Your previous work with Avi A. I meant you went at Futures Forum which I think was a program that e sort of took laid on him put together Juwan explain what a futures form is and then. How does that work with Indigenous people because a lot of these terms and days a very foreign because we practiced these elements in different aspects of different ways but now with aligning so it makes sense in a in a Western context share. What a futures forum that works yes. Other futures will become that was born out of a of an agenda really engage with the future generation In terms of business economic sense and side what we've done is we raised Former colleague in MSL developed this concept. That really looked at. What does the future look like for indigenous people in this country in the next fifty years? What does that look like in relation to business? And let's get together deadly bunch of of a feature entrepreneurs and business people too early unpack. What that what that looks locking site that just got together. There are more country that we got and Yet we we tries back into into a pasta history and work towards a future vision statement as to what business. Lock in fifty. Is Tom here? There's some powerful stuff and was great to meet you there and have the caliber of yourself in the other people in the room. I think it was a fairly painful experience that we will go by. Yeah I think for me. It was a low the Tom I am. I'm coming onto thirty now. And so being a young entrepreneur and saying other young entrepreneurs full of indigenous latest. Probably like pretty intimidated. I was like Oh man these all these ideas a deadly like I should have thought of that But then I like you guys. Sharing and the facilitated tristen was sharing that A lot of people like early in the states have these expos in forums where I would pretty much plan how cities and how things would be divided in built and then from there that people have got the knowledge in the nine how where to position themselves to to get work where to position themselves to united. Start a business or bill equity and ask first nations people. We never really sold the reason to build up and build high things. We were living off the land sustainably living with each other trading with each other trading with Malays in Indonesia that went through China and dumb CEOS a concept that we sort of bring best both worlds really. I applaud you for that. And now you'll see you. Yes we'll get back to that. Let's rock back to dot. Cue the sound. That does time. What but let's take it back to growing up which you grow up you grow up. In country or country or countries all grew up in up McCulloch Soda Knowles In central Queensland depending on what body look at in jail grow up there in all of my family are in Rockhampton I basically Doesn't as denies dies was that my grandfather was a stockman escape.

C.S. Lewis, Essayist
"Cs Lewis was born in Belfast Ireland. In eighteen ninety eight he would die in nineteen sixty three and what a life he lived. He was known as Jack and far as we can tell that was because of one of his dogs names from his early childhood who was Jiaxi and CS. Lewis accepted that name and adopted that name for himself. He was an oxbridge scholar. Which meant that? He how to position at both Oxford University and Cambridge University. He's been hailed as a philosopher and apologist theologian of course he's probably best known for his NARNIA chronicles. His actual profession was as a professor a chair of Medieval and Renaissance Literature. Well let's take a look at his life and let's bring one piece of that life to the surface and that is Lewis as essayist while he was baptized as a child into the Anglican Church as a teenager he drifted into agnostics Zim. And then at the Ripe Age fifteen. He declared himself to be an atheist as a teenager. He also served epic poetry. He was taken by norse mythology and all of the medieval literature. Cs Lewis goes off to France. He saw the horrors of World War. One being involved in trench warfare a shell exploded not too far from him taking the lives of two of his buddies and injuring him and then he was sent back to the UK to serve out the rest of the war on the home front went on to his life of scholarship and eventually he would be influenced by George MacDonald. Who would lead him from atheism to a generic theism in a belief in God in general and then through his friendship with Jr token and continued reading of McDonald and others. He was led from theism to Christianity. Tolkien would have much preferred that. Lewis had joined him in the Catholic Church but Louis went the way of anglicanism went back into his Anglican Church. Louis like to call this Christianity Mirror Christine Hannity and of course that's the title of one of his books. Well the thing I want to talk about Louis is his work as an essayist and one essay in particular comes up from time of nineteen forty one to nineteen forty-three once again. Europe is embroiled in a World War and World War Two and during this time. Cs Lewis is doing radio addresses during air raids over the BBC. So if you can put that setting in your mind these are some of the great essays that come from the pen of Louis in this context. Some of these. Sac PREACHED SERMONS IN CHURCHES. And some he prepared specifically for the radio in a number of them were published as books later the one in particular that I wanNA talk to you about is called the wait of glory. It's an essay and it's also a title of book of essays in it. Lewis says that almost all our modern philosophies have been devised to convince us that the good of man is to be found on this Earth at such a twentieth century things such a modern thing to neglect God and push him out of our lives to neglect the eternal and the transcendent to be fixated on the horizon of the material. Well Lewis says there is far more to ultimate reality than what we see and it is the weight of glory so he writes. It may be possible for each to think too much of his own personal glory hereafter. It is hardly possible for him to think too often or too deeply about that of his neighbor. The load or wait or burden of my neighbors glory should be laid on my back a load so heavy that only humility can carry it in. The back of the proud will be broken. It is a serious thing to live in a society of possible gods and Goddesses to remember that the dullest and most uninteresting person you can talk to May one day be a creature. Which if you saw it now. You'd be strongly tempted to worship or else a whore corruption such as you now meet if at all only in a nightmare and he'll go on to say there are no ordinary people because we all have this weight of glory.

some profession you were being refined you experienced that is a season of refinement now could you see the your whole life as of process and experience of being refined like gold honestly I'm not

only to pharaoh and then there's a famine in so Joseph's ten older brothers come down to Egypt looking for food and they find Joseph in the last place they were expecting and here's how it happened now Jake up saw that there was grain in Egypt and Jacob said to his sons what are you looking at each other look I have heard that there is grain in Egypt call down there and by some force there and we will live we will not die so Joseph's brothers ten of them went down to Egypt to buy grain but Joseph's brother Benjamin Jacob did not send with them because he said so that no mischief happens to
