Nintendos Game & Watch Super Mario is a massive hit of nostalgia

"While the buzzes around the next gen consoles launch. This week i want to talk about handheld those popular in the eighties. It's making a comeback game and watch super. Mario brothers roger chang and this is your daily charge with me is gaming expert and amateur or semi professional magician scottsd- on welcome scott totally amateur so I grew up with a few these game and watch handhelds but for some of our perhaps younger listeners. Explain what these things are. Yes game and watch came before the game boy. This was this was an intended. I four and a hand held games and they were these black and white. Lcd things that only played one game per device and they beeped. They had these static kind of like animation screens. That would just do only so many preset animations. And i love the heck out of these things when i am old so when i was in camp in the eighties. That was my handheld game. So i had a whole bunch of these that i would play and they get me through my summers. Yeah i remember my parents picking up a couple from one ethnic around hong kong like being a kid. I didn't really want to go out and see if they wanted to like. Read a book or play. Play this And i remember one where. I think i was catching bombs going back and forth Remember yeah there were pre rendered images and basically like as you've moved the control pad who would switch one image where you're like cashing bomb left catching the right. It was just. It was super simplistic. But i spent hours playing these things now. Nintendo is coming back. it's the same sort of hardware. It looks the same but obviously plays a little bit differently. Tell me a bit about the new game and watch the providers yes. I'm a total game in watching urge. All say nintendo's revisited game and watching the past with these little versions of those games on the d. s. in three d. s. And i have a compilation. On the game boy micro that i still play. Which is a toll throwback. I lead into that because if you've been following game and watch that's not what the this new one is. It does have one game and watch game called ball which was the first game and watch game. It's just as juggling character catching balls. It's pretty simple but the rest of it. They they put the whole super. Mario brothers and super-party brothers the laws levels on this little hand-held which are like the complete games with a color screen That you played a million times So that's really cool but that's not like the game and watch as we remember it. It's a whole new idea. And yeah so how how Beyond that is it. Just the the first game really like what. What exactly are you getting in this game. And watch him multiple. You mentioned those two games as anything else though. That's it you're getting getting mario brothers. Mario brothers the loss levels which is like japan japanese marbles to. That's been in compilations and you get those on the nintendo switch online service and this ball game and then that's it plus like this watch mode which is the time like these. These things always used to tell time but if you press that you get to see the animated time and you can just watch. Mario jump this time. It's cute but it's like just a total collector's item. Like you don't need that. It's like it's just and that's the entire package and you turn it on and you play it and it does that in. That's that's game and watch an h- how much would go for these fifty dollars so that's not cheap. How that is that is not cheap. That's a lot more than what we spent for these things. You could argue that. They're giving you a little bit more but it's not that much more now but it set up to be a total collector's item in nintendo has been doing this year and they're dipping their toes more into this with limited edition game a lot of people. Compare it to disney's vault. You know where they kind of released often put it away. The supermarket three classics is limited time game supermarket. Thirty five on the switch can only be played through march. This is apparently only being sold through march and the classic was was kind of a limited time thing too even though it hung around for a while. So that's the preface that this is a total collector's item thing. You don't need it. I do irrationally love it. But that's because i love game at If you're a game and watch nerd. This is the first game in watch. They've made in a long time. But it just made me wish. They had made this a real game in watch museum rather than it's like a document. Retro is what i said in the article you know like it. They stuck another richer experience into the richer experience that that wasn't originally part of it right so it wasn't it's not really an authentic retro experience. Just like it's but it's multiple retro experiences both physically in the actual game but they're just different so there's a bit of a contrast there there is although of course as a kid in the eighties. I would have killed the have this. This would have been an absolute miracle too because all those game and watch games. Were trying to make the games you played at the arcade like donkey kong but the versions they had were all like blimpy and like not the thing you go okay. It's like it's like the tiger electronics games. Like you know all those little. Lcd games were trying to make you think of the better experience. So the full. Super mario brothers on a little thing i would of loved but we also can get a lot more now. So that's cool i. It's just. It's a different concept. I will say that the feel of it like the red rubber buttons on this game and watch are totally the red rubber buttons that were on those game and watches way back like the feel of. It reminds me a of that little childhood device. That's important that idea of getting the feel of these things afford that nostalgia work but once to stall war off or maybe it's still going on for you but in terms of expensive you can take this stall out of the equation. Like what are you left with your left with a little thing. That please mario brothers. And you know these things already like saying like these things exist like you can play pacman or tetris. Or you know you. Stores are full of these little mini arcade devices. That you can you can get and so. This is not new. Sega has one but the game year. That's is in japan. The super tiny game gears that that play games In their all absurd. So what you do get is at least the way it feels and controls is really comfortable like it's actually a really nice little experience. Playing mario brothers for what it's worth like. It's not some of these. You never wanna play the game on that little tiny thing but i appreciate the ergonomics of it. And it's kind of like a little stress reliever but you know for fifty dollars. That's a lot. If it was twenty bucks you might say like okay. Totally i would. I would just get one. Keep on my desk. I think this is one of those things that for intended fan clearly and that's what nintendo is increasingly leaning into is dot for the nintendo fan. And i think that's exactly what this symbolizes in a year. Where nintendo doesn't have a new console. Yes good point via. This is part of their big mario. Thirty fifth anniversary right. Yeah it is and and so. They've been making a big deal that also like this year. We don't know what nintendo would have had in this calendar year. I don't think there would have been a new switch. Even even if there hadn't been krona virus in the beginning of the year intendo had had said that. But it like going back to new console thing when we have so many people excited about the playstation five and xbox series x and nintendo made a tremendous success story with animal crossing. There's kind of like a. What's the next chapter. Nintendo doesn't have it yet so there's a little bit of despite the incredible success selling the switch like their sales numbers. Keep keep being really high. It they're kind of treading water to like what's the next thing after that. They don't need have next thing but we're expecting. They might have new switch like a pro version next year. It at the four year mark. It seems like that would be kind of overdue and then the the scanwatch is more of a one often think this is something. That nintendo nintendo Tater released like a line of these retro. Fifty dollar handhelds. I think it would be a total intendo. Move and a shrewd wine. The like do a bunch of them because you know collector shoes. I think a lot of people kinda see the stuff in that territory where you have these things and much like the original game and watch. That's what they were like. Where they had different versions. That came out over the years. And maybe you got the one that had pinball maybe oil panic maybe you had some other special version and then if you missed the first one may be the next one i mean. It seems totally nintendo that they would make zelda would make metro wine and they would just keep going down the line but intendo also drops the ball on doing the next step that you think they would do on some things to put this thing on next and they don't so they're very hard to read with this stuff. I would expect that but I think i think they're also just testing the waters with like even put put the mario kart in that territory. While the that mario kart live home circuit is a very cool camera-equipped a are racing car. Another kind of collector's item. Thing nintendo done this for many years to be clear. But i think that they are really pushing into that now with the whole collectibles landscape

The History Of Edo Japan

"The last episode i covered the beginning of the eto period it was known for its 'isolation strict societal classes and hierarchy and order but it started to see unravel beginning the second half of the era and by eighteen hundred internal issues with the merchant class rising an economic stature above the samurai and all the other classes were casting doubts about the practicality in future of the class hierarchy in japan also outside nations were beginning to by the early nineteenth century seek out any gauge japan regarding diplomatic relations and trade this would endanger. It's latest policy in this episode. I'll continue with the period a continuation of those same internal and external pressures issues. It will culminate in the arrival of commodore perry and the eventual fall of the tokugawa shogunate. And i will provide an analysis of these events and compare these events with what was going on in china during the same period internally in japan the issues of samurai impoverishment continued lower lower level samurais increasingly became frustrated that high-ranking government positions went to privileged families with no chance of advancement compounding this were bad crop harvests in the eighteen thirties resulting in famine disease and death japanese officials failed to provide relief leading to some peasant protests and riots outside pressures were also continuing to mount in eighteen forty four king william the second of the netherlands sent a letter to the show gun urging japan to end its isolation policy or it would be ended by force from foreign countries as already stated. The japanese. Were aware of the humiliation of the. The chinese suffered at the hands of the english in the first opium war. Japan had almost immediately after that began. Its modernisation western. Books were translated into japanese. The japanese began studying western military strategies. Those that could afford it sent their sons to foreign schools. Japanese envoys visited foreign countries japan with slowly preparing for the eventual encounter with these western powers about the same time. The americans were becoming more concerned that if they did not act quickly. Other nations particularly european nations would gain a foothold in japan. The us head already been beaten to the punch so to speak by the europeans. In the exploitation of china plus the americans wanted a refuge in japan for its steamships to recall on their way to china. There were also many reports and concerns over the japanese treatment of shipwrecked shipwrecked american sailors and their desire to do something about that. The us got to the point where it wanted to send to japan. An expedition seeking relations and to avoid being left out of the asia pacific region and development and discussion.

Pick confessions by name and knoxville translated by steven snyder. Who re-re you picked. You picked a doozy for spooky twenty twenty. It really was the perfect read for for spooky month. In my opinion yeah. This episode should be released on election. Day twenty twenty. How are you feeling as we enter this potentially new era. I've just been trying not to think about it. I submitted my ballot a couple of days ago. And i'm like well. It's i don't know it feels kind of hopeless but you know you're i don't now i don't know i feel i don't wanna i don't wanna think about it. I like when the results come out. I'm still skeptical on. How much can change. How much damage control do yeah. Oh at least we can still escape to our books as a resident alien from canada. I'm counting on all you people to To us that's right. You can't vote. I voted for the first time when a moved to california. Because i didn't become naturalized until i was like twenty one twenty. Which very like my this is only like my second election because because the last election the first very first one i voted for was trump versus clinton and wow. I was appointed by the results of it my first election. I vote and i was like. Wow i feel like my vote. Didn't cout of but that's democracy for you right. I mean did count. it just didn't count enough. Yeah i know because of the electoral college or some bullshit like our international listeners are going to just be so continue. No i think they understand. Also what's at stake here. I mean everyone knows the situation that our country is an and yeah so Those of us in the future. How's it over there. I hope i hope it's I hope it's not as bleak but yeah Quick reminder that we're gonna be talking about the whole of confessions by claiming not so so that includes spoilers and since this book is kind of like a crime thriller. You definitely don't want to get spoiled before you get into it so make sure you read the book before coming back listening to our discussion. Yeah i would put this in the same category as never let me go. I'll just go into it as cold as possible and then come back and listen to us and it's a pretty quick read only about two hundred and thirty five pages for a novel. It's relatively short so you can probably knock it out in a day or two and back. Okay so we're we're gonna move on tear discussion. Yeah marvin what have you heard about this book before. Because it you know it was an international bestseller. It was extremely popular in japan. It sold millions of copies. And there's a movie based on this book as well. So have you heard about this book before. Going in actually haven't so this is my first time exposed to this I guess you can call source material. actually didn't know there was a film Yeah it's directed by tetsuya kashima. Who is a pretty well known director and it debuted at the toronto international film festival back in twenty ten and it got a lot of critical acclaim so i have not watched a movie and interested in how they adapted it. Yeah i mean it is a form of story that is somewhat familiar in asian media tropes which is like the revenge story right like we've seen this before in like the korean cinema. A lot of japanese films anime manga light novels also feature stories that like kind of focused on revenge right like the wrong party.

So for the duration of the scavenger hunt, we're going to rerun some of our favorite neighborhood specific episodes. If you listen to last week's episode about foods that started in Chicago you heard Monica mentioned a restaurant in Lakeview that serves something called the Tagawa. It's an Omelette Lake dish with hamburger patty green pepper onion, and bean sprouts, and it developed and Lakeview when it was home to a working class Japanese neighborhood. But when was that and what happened to that community? Reporter Catherine Nagasawa has more. When Irene Browne was a kid in the nineties her family used to take trips to Chicago's Japan town at least that's what her mom used to call it. It was a cluster of Japanese restaurants and businesses on the north side in the Lakeview neighborhood near Bellmont and Clark streets. Now, Irene's family isn't Japanese but her family to drive in from the suburbs to shop for ingredients for the Japanese recipes they like to try out if you wanted to buy rice noodles. You couldn't just go and tiny store and order it on Amazon. You have to actually go to the Japanese neighborhood the shops and restaurants Irene remembers were actually the remnants of a small but thriving japanese-american neighborhood at its peak in the seventies there were around hundred and fifty Japanese American owned establishments in the area and right in the middle was the Nissan Bar near Clark Sheffield it was named after the niece or second generation Japanese Americans who lived in the neighborhood. My Dad. It'd be sitting there watching the cubs gays and. It'd be all japanese-americans niece as here at the time that's Paul Yamaguchi who has a kid would work in his dad's restaurant the hamburger king it was next door to the Nikkei Lounge. My pay was a bowl of Chili fries. And there was a door here that connected the knee say lounge. Lounge still there but Irene says nearly all of the other Japanese shops and restaurants she remembers gone. Degree mercantile where she went shop for pottery and chopsticks is now an Improv Comedy Theater Clark Street is now full of sports, bars and chain stores. It's made her wonder. Chicago has so many ethnic enclaves has greektown has chinatown what happened to that Japanese community and where did they go? The reason the Lakeview neighborhood disappeared is complicated and part of it has to do with how Japanese Americans got to Chicago. In the first place, they didn't come by choice the US government forcibly relocated twenty thousand Japanese Americans to Chicago during World War Two. And that group was pressured to shed their ethnic identity, their language and their culture in order to survive. That story doesn't start in Chicago. It starts on the West Coast in the nineteen forties. December seventh nineteen, forty one. No American will ever forget this Sunday morning and Hawaii. I overhead JAP raiders are on the loose without warning they circle Pearl Harbor and the city of Honolulu. Surprise attack warning in the beginning of World War. Two. Approximately one hundred and twenty thousand Japanese Americans were living in what were called Japan towns on the West. coast. These rare sensually Japanese neighborhoods similar to other immigrant neighborhoods around the country. But with the threat of an invasion from Japan, the US government was worried about the loyalty of the highly concentrated West Coast Japanese-americans. So incarcerated them what were later called internment camps around the country We are protecting ourselves off violating the principles of Christians Easton's. One hundred and twenty thousand people locked up was expensive and the country needed workers. So after a couple of years, the government changed its focus to reintroducing Japanese-americans to society. Researcher Lori Fujikawa says the government didn't want Japanese Americans to return to the Japan towns they left on the west coast they wanted them to spread out and assembly the government told them that part of the reason you ended up in these camps was because you hung out with your own kind, they were basically saying your to Japanese. So when the government allowed japanese-americans to leave the camps, they set specific conditions one, the close the West Coast to Japanese for. The duration of the war and to they force them to answer a series of questions about loyalty before they were allowed out of the question said, you have to promise that you're not going to hang out with other Japanese Americans. They also told them to avoid speaking Japanese and to develop quote American Customs. So the government says we'll let you go as long as you stop acting what we think of as Japanese and as long as you integrate into the society. So, how do we get from the camps to? Lakeview. Well in nineteen forty, three the government show. Chicago as the first city to pilot their vision for Japanese assimilation. They believed Chicago would be more tolerant to Japanese-americans unlike the West Coast Chicago didn't have the same prewar racial prejudice towards the Japanese. Since there were so few of them living in the city at the time. And when they first arrived japanese-americans found, it was easy to find jobs in Chicago's light industries like garment manufacturing bookbinding and candy factories. So you get a job ID McClure's you can get a job at Curtis Candy, get a job baby ruth all these places wanted me say because they're good workers that's Rosser although he was born in a camp and just a couple years old when his family arrived in Chicago along with a wave of twenty thousand other Japanese Americans. Hirano says his family along with many others received housing assistance from the government and other local agencies to encourage assimilation. The government made sure to settle people in different neighborhoods on the south and north sides. So there wasn't any clustering it was sort of a understood what you had the do you had to basically be unseen, but once the government stopped paying attention japanese-americans did begin to cluster together moving out of the South and north sides by the nineteen sixties. The biggest cluster was in lakeview between Belmont and Addison streets. Like be was thought of as safe affordable. And it was close to white middle class neighborhoods, which was in line with the government's directive to assimilate into the dominant American culture. To understand what it was like to grow up in Lakeview and why the neighbor disappeared. I met a group of people who grew up in the area. We went to the same place. You heard about earlier the Nikkei lounge bar one of the last establishments still left from that era. There from generation that was shaped by the government's efforts to force assimilation you can see traces of it in the first names their parents gave them ten phone, Amora Elaine con of Shiro Mike Higa, and Tracy and Linda. Oishi. But his kids they weren't really aware of everything. Their parents had gone through to get to Chicago in Lakeview they just knew it was nice place to grow up we get out of school at two thirty there, and basically what we would do, we'd go right over Wrigley Field because they would open up. thinning they're all the churches used to host dances not too far from here at. All. And so in during my high school years that was my social life. Our parents would go out and play. So we would go out to Lemoyne school where I went to grammar school at did they would flood the? The playground lot there, and we go out ice skate there. There's nothing particularly Japanese about these memories. They could be anybody in Chicago. But looking back the.

"We will be focusing on Japanese cuisine in this episode from a uniquely four top perspective. I will learn about the artisan producers in Japan who are harvesting and creating products that will rock your world with their layers of Emami flavor. Ver- next we'll talk about what it's like to break into Japanese cuisine if you are an outsider and finally we'll talk about some of the philosophical principles behind Japanese cooking and now let's meet our panelists. Nancy singleton achieve sue lives on an organic farm in Japan. And it's here promoting her fourth cookbook food artisans of Japan. Welcome welcome Nancy. Thank you for having me and congrats on your new book. Oh thanks and now go to Mora is the chef of Shih Tzu. A restaurant here in Portland and she has a number of other projects as well and now co are you doing the meals for the tokyo-bound Delta Win First Class. Yes we do read that and also also Bento boxes at the retail store Bucci. Yeah just second week citing welcome and Sushi. Chef coup is the owner of Zilla Sake. A Sushi Sushi and sake bar here in Portland certified soccer professional. Hello I think user having me all right. Let's get to some mummy flavors. Nancy your new book covers so much ground that it was difficult to pick just one subject to focus on but one thing I got from it was a wide range of subtle flavors within the mummy spectrum spectrum from the various Red Sea Greens to me. So I just don't even know where to begin. But what should Americans know about. Oh Mommy and does artisanal craftsmanship. Tie I into this flavor. Somehow no now is a word that was made by a company that sells MSG. Oh it's not my favorite word actually What we're looking at it? It's they use that word to describe the fifth flavor so and they chemically reproduced it with MSG but No we don't talk about it like that. In fact in Japan they do know the word now now but I asked a bunch of my my husband chef friends Khamchan. WHO's in the book? They had never even heard of the word. Like what is that. But what we're what we're really talking about. Is Sassy Asu saw. That's the the five building blocks of Japanese cooking side being sought the sugar or Mirren Fussy Sh- sh show shot salt thinking and saw no not yet she. Su Su is vinegar. Sick Sassou set say is so I saw some old word say you and so is me. So that's the most important. Those are the most important piece of the Chinese food. They told me I was waiting to tell you that I hate that word. What else do you think? Americans need to know about Japanese cuisine. Aw You know is that you really don't have access to the best ingredients actually That is changing. And that's part of why I come and I've always brought my own products because they're the equivalent products and not here I've luckily been able to get some Help up from some of those the producers to bring it over a America's such a big huge country that it's really hard to I introduce a line of products as is a consulting Thing with Guyana Australia. WHO's already bringing in other countries? Great products and so Australia has the best lineup of Japanese products in all the countries countries in the world. The comes names pheno foods if you WANNA see the nancy-hochey bedded group there's there but but Yeah it's it's it's changing and the only other thing I would say. Hey is that. I've seen a lot of strange uses or combinations of Japanese ingredients and I gotTa tell the young thirty year old chefs is less less is more rarely. Just let's not pile it on so heavily and blanket leash dried. She talk in everything. or Oh you like Samir blankly and everything this is and yeah just dial it back and respect that but hey you can do what you want. Yeah you do see just about any ingredient in a cocktail these days. Yeah I brought some cool Ingredients for Cox like as really good cocktails or seven. Spice she she okay. Can you tell me what both of those things are is the Well in this case I'm talking about the the salted Salted and then sundried. It's a is a sour plum. Which is actually in the Apricot family family? So if you're GONNA do it don't use plums used green apricots if you can't get in May but we're in an MA territory but It's never eaten raw because it's toxic doc sick and so you have to either put Liquor and sugar on it too steep it into a delicious potion called shoe or You salt it and press it down to make a Brian and then you take it out of the bride and you and you sound riot. And that's who may she. I think a lot the people know as little round things inside of the rice balls And then the Brian is called. You may sue. It's called may vinegar but it's actually a Salty salty salary fruity flavor. And it's there you can have it as a paste or as the liquid brine fine and then one of our The company that I send my town us me so people they have contract farmer who makes the products he also makes this incredible Read she so powder where he he dips. Reggie so into the into the Brian that you may sue and Sandra is it. And so like it's salty she she so e deliciousness. That is really gonNA pickles and I am sorry cocktails on it and for listeners. What is she so she's so? Is that that what they call it. Parrilla in English I thought everybody in America uses. She's so it's like it's like Green Leaf. That is in your Sushi. Yes yes time in Portland. Lisa Japanese basil like. Yeah this family but percents As a chef in Portland nocco what ingredients. Can you find and wet ingredients frustrating that you cannot find in the United States the Michael Gates Like Portland pull fixture can Hokkaido cooking Okinawa cooking they have different different ingredient. Different culture different people so my cooking is I don't l look looking. For the Japanese ingredient ingredient was. Just do you know what Farm House it the charred or any other visible. So but but one thing consumable. She's a prom so my teeth and I'm GonNa teacher has a prompt tree so only a couple things. I want to really WANNA a habit but don't use Sorry nocco don't use Like me so and soy sauce and rice vinegar or meeting flavorings yet. The we make it. We use the up inaugur instead the rice vinegar. Sometimes we need a strong flavor so I use the Chinese rice. Vinegar is here. He's Chinese Chinese their bigger brethren Japanese vinegar in in here so but missile a used missile. I also I'm fond myself. Yeah Associates I bring the summer break as special mall more flavor to Japanese to slow spring from Japan. Some some old. The in in Oregon has another Japanese Soysal's company in fact Oregon. Yeah Yeah Yeah Yeah. Can we talk a little bit about soya sauce. Because I think Americans just know the term soy sauce you know what is what is key. Okay Kill Gays like to Cedar Barrel like why why but I couldn't. Yeah it's very very very a few companies are making their soya sauce and Cedar barrels our local company does and they are bringing it in through the Japanese pantry right now but also they're going to bring it in more but They've their choice has has been repackaged by Asala and you can buy it in whole foods. in it's called NAMA show you. Yeah and that's smile local of nylon local soy sauce There's some sneaky marketing companies bringing in like the Kishi Body. Soy Sauce us. It's made from Chinese conventional beans which is the lowest of the lowest of the of the bean beans family so most severe all the organics in in the US. All the organic. Soy Sauce is all made from Chinese beans. By the way. How how can we? How can we Americans discern which products are better? Is there a way to know or just email you call you. Read the Japanese. It's not especially I'm not talking about tastes about like because I have not taste tested but I think I don't. I think that they're doing a really bad thing. Because they're selling this sauce made from the lowest of the low priced and and and we eat And they're selling it as art artisanal soy sauce but only because it's in a it's been an cedar barrel so they it's a medium low grade soy sauce in a cedar barrel so yeah it's not horrible but they're selling it for thirty percent more than the than the Japanese organic one because it's in a fancy bottle so this is this is so resonating with me because I'm a journalist. You put something in an expensive barrel inexpensive bottle and then charged the same thing like that. Do you have trouble. Sourcing the ingredients you need. I would say okay that there's a balance when you're running when you're running an operation like I do. I must be no. It's really interesting Nancy when you were talking about this idea of putting all these ingredients together and pilot everything on because it's Zillow we really we really strive to be ingredient driven because on as a chef owner. That's very important to me. I started as the head Sushi chef there and so the SUCCI has always been a really really main focus for us as far as the ingredients but the fish. Now you know we're able to get a lot of things of course because air freight you know overnighted to us from different parts of Japan which is which is very fortunate that I think with what we're trying to do but in terms of things like soy sauce or Nori is very difficult because the balance of you know pain seventy dollars for a case of versus paying three hundred dollars for a case of Nori at some point getting the top level ingredients that we might really want to get our hands on in us isn't going to be. We're not GONNA be able to do that and be sustainable a restaurant as far as staying open because the cost of those ingredients radiance. When you're doing you know Laura operation and sold very small so I mean the the very large restaurants? I'm sure have had the same issue as well. You you know. I can't necessarily bring in every talk notch high end ingredient that I want you have to kind of pick and choose. I guess with the the ingredients which things you are going to go for the gold with and and really spend that money in and still balanced John Stott with quality so it can be difficult sometimes totally that's that the restaurants have different paradigms and you're always striving to hit the cost cost plus you know and I get that. Yeah I think definitely for you know outside of the restaurant usage huge. I mean it's it is really interesting to hear. You know these things like about the show year whatever because I'm I'm definitely learning learning things as we go Louis Conversation here too which is interesting. Unfortunately the best way to get information as to read the Japanese sites now. Hey I don't read. Japanese thought well but I can news. Google translate speak Japanese cycle. Read the Romanized text. What they don't write on their side so if they never say there were Ganic? They're not organic if they never say eh Key Yoga wouldn't barrel. They never are same thing if they don't say Japanese and organic soybeans are almost all Chinese. Is the point zero zero three percent of of organic show you.

"japanese" Discussed on Plant Of The Week

"That would be a great addition to your landscape. Scape now for this week's bond products plant of the week Talk about your plan of the week. Well the plan to the week is a group group of plants Japanese maple by big picture it statement. Japanese maple is a A whole oh genus species etc etc.. We won't get into those details but There are the green ones there are the red ones. The Greens does vary in density of the green. The red ones vary all the way from an orangey red clear into a burgundy now. Many any people have used that plant some well most appropriately as some have asked to take a little bit too much of a risk but by and large. They're sturdy trie. One of the things to mention is that the first three years until they are settled in route wise and and firmly so to speak. You need to be cautious about mulching now not up against the trunk not more than two inches deep but you want to keep the freeze thaw cycle like we were it just through this week from being too significant On my street and and there there's no science behind this but I planted one some years years ago. A neighbor with the same essentially exposure to the west and so on planet one. I- mulched mine. I took well. Let's just say care. Make sure it went into the winter moist so that it froze in at thirty two and stayed there etc The other party did not there's lasted three ears mine. Is there thirty five years later now. There's some good luck in that and a lot of other possibilities but it as Japanese maples go. The green wins are quite attractive in structure size and shape and so on All the way from what. I'm GONNA call a reasonably full leaf. Maple like in most cases Sir most most observation and then some are very very they're called dissect them as a matter of fact very finely cut and then on the red side the same thing By and large they're a tree. Well you can grow them as a SHRUB and we'll get into that in a moment but fifteen to twenty five feet so don't crowded against the house It's it's tiny when you put it in if not just because it's the way you wanNA handle it in size hits because it's expensive when they get real big but in any event Twenty twenty five feet the The plants are capable of being grafted. So that you can either. In the red informs or the green forms you can keep it from being called. I'm a called a standard tree and I'm going to go now to a lot of the uses for the Red Forms Whether they be the full leaf type or most especially to one's called dissect them that are draftable grafting onto a standard red will a standard Japanese maple trunk green form etc and you can graph those in bud them in as technicals go At anywhere from mm six to twelve to fifteen inches above the ground on up to you can make almost a lollipop. Blake tree the one I have in front of my home is as was grafted the red dissect them type was put onto the stem at about thirty two inches above the ground. Now it's considerably bigger than that but it's it's a plant that can be varied in uses varied in beauty. And the only thing I would recommend I would not put it against a strong. Oh I wouldn't put it on on on Westside hillside where the wind sweeps up Up The hill the The Sun dries the soil in the summertime. And so on. That's that's asking just a little bit too much however they will grow their if you give them that good three year starts so that's more or less the whole group in an in a nutshell so to speak vic not most of the time when you see him I I'm just going to say of an ornamental. Use them next to a sidewalk up close to the house. It's a focal focal point. And they really want you to see right And so many times you see them with that beautiful umbrella shape how do you how do you achieve that well. Part of it. His Mother Nature part of it is action the gene pool the plant. That particular plant has come from my to pick on mine and many like it was. It is a weeping form and I don't mean penniless like a cherry or a weeping willow but the growth tends to go down word so when your pruning if any of the stems catch a bad case of jeans and they start turn up you can clip off. If there's two or so in that area you can clip off. The one is turning upright literally. Go down close to the bud or or the next side of stem and so on and clip off the upturning part. So what I have done and it takes me some. I don't know thirty minutes a year Over the period of time I have accentuated the down your down angled forum is what it boils down to. I've also kept it in size. Four that area now a lot of times they're put in and you don't even know the Japanese maple because they just stay small. That's nice where you have a question. Caller has questioned about our provider. Coming up next on talk so stick with us..

what was not good however was as she formed the last dumpling she wasn't paying attention to her other little stack of dumplings has her hand moved she accidentally swatted the dumping off the pile an plopped on the ground if her shack so i'm pretty sure that the five second rule doesn't apply to dirt floors but the little old woman who liked laughing and dumplings felt differently she go for it but the dumpling was already on the move she crawled on her hands and knees but the dumpling was faster than it vanished the wimsatt up what happened and she saw it the whole it wasn't a large hole only about the circumference of a dumpling but surprise surprise that was the necessary circumference in which to lose a dumpling i can imagine her biting her lip the thinking about it in what it was dirt she could rinse it off she wasn't too proud for this no one would have to know the woman jammed her hand into the whole and dropped immediately all around her her dirt floor cracked before dropping out from under her she tumbled with a thin layer of earth through not a cavernous underground but through the sky after falling for what will be like two hundred feet she landed hard on the road and she was fine she wasn't even hurt wide eyed she looked around o. k. she looked up but couldn't see what would have been the floor of her home just sky she looked around her down a road sloping off this was really weird then she gasped the dumpling she scrambled to her feet and took off down the road there might be something about this land that makes dropping from a height of a skyscraper survivable survivable event but it doesn't mean what give you years of cardio training in minutes the old woman was wounded and leading next to a jesus statue oga okay sure diversion when talking about the jesus statues or go down acute tragic rabbit hole jesus on or jeez osama is the divinity and japanese buddhism and jesus statue is one that's not just in the strange land below a dumpling makers dirt floor but a statue that peppers modern day japan often times you'll see them clothe they look adorable i link some pictures and article explaining them unfortunately if they're clothed it's because something terrible's what's happened as far back as the fourteenth century there was a belief that when a child died they had not occurred enough good karma on earth so they were sent a sort of limbo were they had to stack stone towers across the river into the afterlife demons being demons repeatedly smack down the stone towers do mean children to constantly rebuild them enter jason bozo he's a bonus data and instead of traveling onto enlightenment he chose to stay back doc and help the countless children's stuck in limbo he would hide children in the sleeves of his robes and take them across the river to the afterlife so when you see klute route statue of jesus sometimes with a pile of stones next to it it's usually because apparent has lost a child wants to watch over them help them pass on in the afterlife if it appears to be mainly cases of miscarriages or very young children but the jesus statue has been seen as a way to have closure for such a tragic event in addition to his role for children he's also seen as generally protector for women and travelers i will jump back in after that bit of cultural relevance and catch up with a little old woman who likes making dumplings both a woman and a traveler oh lord jesus did you see my bumbling the old woman asked the completely inanimate and non living statue yeah it's wait how did you know i could talk can statues talking your world the surprise statue replied nope the old woman said so you what like just talked to statues on a regular basis on the chance that they'll talk back the statue asked cockiness stone own eyebrow guess so the woman remarked fair enough the statue said and then look down the road yeah he did see her circe ct dumpling rolling down the road kinda surprised she was still looking for it but she should really stop looking for it further down the road was an oni dolman cotton eyebrow a what now it was an only a japanese ogre demon troll take your pick because they're all the same in this instance and they are all terrible they're usually bright red with big teeth and crazy lookin' is and these ones wore tiger skin loincloths so they were pretty fashionable i guess when they people so seriously just leave the dumpling behind and oh cool the old woman was leaving don't listen to the jesus on he was just the protector of children women travelers what did he know around the time she approached jesus statue number three she still hadn't gotten that the situation was perhaps more dangerous than she thought despite jesus san's incessant and urgent warnings that she needed to turn back and find some way out of here because the oh no he glanced up to the road ahead he told the woman to get behind his sleeve the only was coming the woman looked up and saw a squat what harry red oni who have compared to like a more demonic elmo sniffing the air and lumbering down the road ahead the only only bowed low before the statue he might be a vicious human eating demon but he was a polite vicious human eating demon good day jesus on the only remarked he said he smelled human somewhere the statue jesus would have shook his head if he wasn't a statue he told the line between truth and lie when he said that perhaps the only was mistaken no i i definitely smell the smell of mankind signed was that like cow's selfishness and sweat was it the only said sniffing the air from behind the stone sleeve the the woman chuckled mankind she was a woman stupid only seriously the statue of jesus said not turning around around show his nonplus look because he couldn't turn around in an instant the only grabbed the woman's robe and pulled from behind the statue she was still chuckling for some reason come on what are you gonna do with her she's just an old woman better not hurt her the statue said the only was about to reply within or what but look down the road he sought statues of the body sought for lined it as far as he could see in either direction i'm not going to hurt her she's just gonna come with me she's gonna cook for us the only said the old woman shrugged didn't sound so bad there demons honey ally the statue said and then he directed his gaze back to the only don't hurt her if they did he will be angry the only started to laugh but saw the look and jesus son's is he said he wouldn't he promised.

"japanese" Discussed on Shift+F1

"On a podcast about speedy racecars I'm drew scanlon joining me Daniel Dwyer how're you danny I'm doing fantastic this was do it all right lights they were out for maybe I'd say a hair longer than we had a was it last race there for quite a long while which is when Kimmy since faced a whole thing to seem very odd it was it was a weird thing because you're right like I couldn't figure out what the time be it almost seemed like they were going to be allowed to just run around the circuit with a piece way hanging off because the stewards were slow to react l. about this was at some point you you think it's going to stop throwing part like pieces of metal right when you start in high spion replace a lot of debris did not enough to damage his car I'm another yeah driver's car like what are the you know the odds of a tiny he's taking at both wings it was obviously like a lot of stuff because it wasn't going to take two mirrors if there was one tiny piece of must have been a lot but you have tony with you I I I feel like in an Leclair's defense and I don't know that the Amex of the relationship between them and the communication that's going on there but it does really feel a and maybe this is I feel like this is something we've touched upon in previous episodes as well that's regardless of whatever strategy fryer doing never feels like they're being assertive it always feels like this sort of like wishy washy in the heat of the moment like us yeah like it was weird for him to be okay it's not as bad as it's not as bad as it looks Bhai but it doesn't feel bad he can really see what's going on so it's crazy that they don't like say you never know maybe they really really didn't want to bring him in that was just you know and this was their way of sort of trying to weasel her way past the race director resisting like I don't know it increasingly I feel like this is not the first time we've had the two you know talking to his pit wall and they're being just vagueness it seems strange when when everyone else is so directs listened to Bano and Hamilton and it's just like data points data point question data point it's so it's like it's like a fighter jet whereas like when the Clara sounds like he's growing up as fucking ISP I wrote down a when they tell him box he replied with why don't we continue a little bit more yeah and I was like is this a real f. one radio transmission like I hear your call the box but impose is he's run this up the flagpole see if anyone salutes what have we didn't box we just drove you relapse and just see what happens this is Cape Cod maybe the next gas station has a subway like let's scour we're fine let's keep going but is this is this like fourth dimensional chess where this as as you sort of intimated there is Ferrari trying to look like they're trying to do something when really they're keeping track position and more importantly they are keeping the there is Charles still somehow ahead of Hamilton at this point he is retain percents where the debris the debris goes in Hamilton's face like are they always laugh but like Lynn legitimately I yeah yeah that's a big piece yeah it's like half Felipe Massa was was rendered unconscious for granted I was that was a bolt or something daybreak coming off cars is no laughing matter when the when the cars are traveling at that speed I mean the relative speed I guess would be the same instance but like it's it's you know it's super interest rate but are they just are they basically trying to make a show of like damn we you know we tried to get ahead of that wing situation but you know it was confusing things were fluid and radio version of when they pretend to come into the pits yeah and in the meantime Hamilton is falling farther and farther behind that all who they have to think is going to be able to claw some of this back given the the pace advantage for our it's had for much of the weekend right I think this might be a good time to just jump to what the stewards did with Clare after the race because they handed him actually to penalties one for his collision with a five second time penalty and then a ten second time penalty for driving in in an unsafe manner which comes from the fact that he was dangling from his car but if you're Donna if you're gonNA weigh in on that and say that that was dangerous that's not that doesn't seem like a judgment call on what someone's intention was right that's you can see what's happening there why if if you're going to hand down that penalty didn't you show a flag flag yeah I I it's worth mentioning as well the during the race the incident was opened readily quickly said that they weren't going to do anything else on it and then I feel like five or six laps later was reopened and they said they finish it off to the they'd figure it out after the rice which also just the verstappen thing that was specifically there for stop and think yeah but it just that whole elements just seemed as a viewer of the sport it was a nightmare because it meant that there was an asterix whatever Leclair was doing at all time so you kind of feel like you're out of the loop on that one statement from Massey if I race director about that specifically he says that originally with what was available to the stewards they made a determination that no investigation was necessary then they got some other footage which they didn't half and well within their rights it was a new element and they reopened it somebody tweeted it onto a really know what did they not have like what's a couple minutes to get get all the all the angles but it did I guess to me did look maybe a little bit more like a racing incident in the moment and then when you get a slightly wider angle you realize how much race track Leclair just the pronunciation things throwing me it is so weird to be like have the dude introduce himself as Charles Leclerc and then it's Leclair all the way down but whatever it is once you once you could see clearly how much track Leclair had to work with at that point he went out of his way to sort of cut verstappen off and I don't know I you know I feel like to see Arkley verstappen did a lot of stuff like this early in his f one career but it's been a while since I've seen that much that's agree just from him meanwhile it really feels like ever since Austria Charles has been maybe one of the most sharp elbows drivers out there to the point where I think it's I think it's bad for him I think we are and not only that but like two to this question we've been returned to again and again kind of one do you want good heart racing is one thing but at the same time I would have preferred to see the I would prefer ch Charles and Max to be able to race each other and see how that is resolved on the track you know the move encounter move rather than them being so dangerous around each other that like Charles resolves at every time by shunting Mac off the track that that sucks yeah he did on twitter take responsibility for that he says my mistake can turn one it ruined Max's race put ourselves in a bad position for the remaining the remainder of the race Mexico next yeah I feel like I don't know like I I think it was a mistake more than intention it did seem like he got it we're in this year they're being so lax about the sort of rub his race in this of this sort of stuff I I don't necessarily think it could have gone either way kind of for me but it's in sloppy from the Clare rather than mean but here's the thing it's right at the start of the race one is going through that corner everyone is losing air in front of them everyone is losing front downforce it's March yeah I'm saying I don't even by the he lost I'm not I'm not saying I don't even buy that he lost air over the wing and that's what caused him to massively understeer like that I mean the start of the race at that speed that probably is not going to be the thing that makes them do that it's going to be he took an angle and watch the onboard and his wheel doesn't like he blues it doesn't like turn in or doesn't straighten out but you know like he also should he knows in that situation as every other driver knows what's is going to happen with as you know it's the Gust of wind thing that happened maybe with with could bitter yeah it sucked it kind of it was ultimately it really sucked for for stop yeah and Leclair did finally pit on lap three so the running order becomes Bo Thompson I federal at Campbellton third signs in Fourth Allen in fifth a does McLaren's yeah speaking of left four album on Norris is that right Oh yes did I say that running order right then yeah go ahead of ourselves north yeah okay yeah who wants to take us through this one this is a this is a chicane after one thirty all right correct yeah I don't know just Alexander Album decides to take a corner like when you're playing the video game he's just old right uh-huh bonds down at least he did it's over red is a pretty hefty escape road but j just shunts norris off the track he kept the place didn't he he did I think they ended the stuarts even say anything in the end I don't think so I think the drivers talked about it after the race I think nor like I think Norris later said it was a hard move but I'm glad there was no action that was the comment soft from him so yeah like some some Nice Gamesmanship certainly I think it was a weird thing because if you look like look at the replay album had him it wasn't it wasn't close it wasn't like he was creating opportunity that wasn't there he had a good run and he was coming fast and like you know there was there was a little bit of daylight he took it norris would have had to really aggressively slam the door on that and so like to me it was it was a little edgy but I don't think album was driving like.

"Online Japanese animations could spirited away is often ever get to chat about this do you remember that coffee had some because all I know who either houses and I'm like yeah I know I've just been seeing the house I'm just deciding what to do with the house is all getting too much and he just bought out of the coffee shop over the road through the gate turn left knocks on the door of the house are you what are you going to see why it's not how it's meant to be and I was uncomfortable but I'm like this is the way that it's going and so anyway we knock on the door and woman answers and after a while I figured out that she is probably the wife of my cousin so it's a bit awkward 'cause she wouldn't know the family washy might look what you wanted to happen is it not really thought todd for her because she's she's got this three random people on her doorstep saying do you relative Australia and anyway we kind of realized that yes she was the wife and I kind of told her three mind temper that at a died and but that it was important for me to tell my cousin directly not just through her so we we tried to the range of time when I could go in meet him again and tell him what was once you actually came back to tell him the what was it like it was not like you would see in the movies you know it's not like a big happy reunion where everyone's happy to see each other and it's amazing it was very Japanese so I quite formal very respectful very correct very friendly very welcoming and open sort of open arms the house but I sort of in my mind thought my only job here is to make some connection and tell them about dead and and I'd made a little photo album for them as well y while I've been in Japan of some photos of dad and some photos of May at home in Japanese curry that I like to make it home and I wanted to give them a a nice album and so we sat around and talk about things I talked about how remember holding a bunny rabbit and my cousin remembered that it was really quite lovely to have memories that are so important to me remembered by someone else the last time you were here you had a story about your father's or something who had been expelled from the family for gambling was this cousin related to him or was he the son of Man Oth- wow I know so my other instinct is going Oh my God I want to ask about your dad and I go what really happened that's twelve trips down yes riot that's wow yep and in fact the gambling kind of scandal thing so that the second man he the first of these old men who basically the House they knew about that as well so it was clearly something that the whole and in fact there's a lot of past tense your grandparents used to have the I hardware shop on the street but I think what must have happened is after the gambling stuff maybe part of that business had had to be sold off for you know there's this whole history intertwined in this tiny little straight with about three or four buildings of course I can absolutely understand your I think that'd be really terrifying to make that could they called cool I had called colleagues it's awful but I wonder what they might view because suddenly vacuuming the cats bedroom nothing and then there's a knock on the door and this woman from Australia and and by the way she's a television percents and she's extremely well known country in gruen you must blend their minds clue you aware of that I'm not I was just more conscious of how I was making them feel but I think I think the daughter of my cousin so minus no is that what who's the daughter of my first cousin first cousin moved she's about twelve and she was very excited and I think the hair it's like oh my gosh yes from her perspective she's living in lovely little home in Tokyo and doing normal Japanese life and then suddenly this person from Australia rocks and I think they've done a bit of googling between seeing the wife and because search high profile the famous look down the road I think she'd done a bit of googling and rick realized that there was someone who was on the news on the Kelly and stuff so I used to be a news broadcaster for CNN. Wow Yeah so all my gosh what's going on they were they were really but there's a great Japanese phrase I don't remember in Japanese but essentially means to read the air the to read the feeling in the so let's say you're an Irish party and then you can just tell that it's time to go because the hosts to really tired but I can't pick that up I'm still rambling on and asking for another glass of Wine right and then wouldn't mind a coffee but I'm not reading the Air is Bob Japanese people would say so in that sit down with them heading over the photos and stuff there's just a women probably at forty eight minutes in Rogers thought are this is the time is now say goodbye there was no shift in the dynamic those no no pushing us out there was no negatively but this feeling in the air I just thought I've done what I need to do this trip now it's time to go and maybe next time on time after that'll time off to that a little bit more trust or sort of intimacy will come out of that family relationship as you'd give them so much to think about until about intifada and they needed the rule that the basis for that ongoing relationship with the I would love that I I am still waiting funnily enough to get the latest phone number for my cousin I have to kind of 'cause my Japanese is not good enough it's so frustrating I have to go through my friend Sean so he said to me though because he's very good at reading Japanese nece I said how did you think that went and he said I think it went really well and they'll be so happy to welcome you back to Japan anytime you came and I sort of welcomed into Australian of Costa the daughter was super excited he's like who trip to Australia and his great and so I definitely would love to see them trauma also said to me there are very traditional Japanese family and he said that in the most positive way he said you know he's very traditional kind of Japanese man who would look Bruce Family in the show because his wife on the enough stayed back out of the conversation for the whole time I was there she was in the kitchen waiting to give his tea and if there was a very old-fashioned relationship where now we're he took care of affairs and so I'm still waiting for a number to contact him again and next go to Japan oh definitely contact them and try and droppin but this is one of the great things about Tuck you wouldn't amazing place is that it's this gigantic medal but but it's really a city of neighborhoods and they're all these old people there who have the institutional memory of the neighborhood that's so rare in Australia now we will move around so much that's so rare way there's a couple of all blacks go the Gucci maybe the conditions for you know it's like that in its Tokyo it's the middle of the great big city at such a good point I think that's why it was so bizarre because it's what you expect in a small country right I remember your grandfather when he was a good hard worker it was like that it was literally so bizarre was characters out of some comic book and I suppose that's why Tokyo is amazing it is it has been built out of like village upon village upon village upon village just is part of twenty seven million people and when you're dead migrated it's like years zero to migrate like that to go from Japan to Australia particularly what the seventies is when he arrived he wasn't a civilized seventy seventy s so you're dead in this neighborhood the name rings down like a bell through decades and generations that's a whole different thing so is this this all tied up with the reason why you want to kind of re amy that's the word you're Japanese it's a great way to put it yeah I do say reclaiming that is part of the reason is to kind of I do have a his st I hadn't really thought about it I thought about that I'm a little kid who lives in Australia who visits my grandparents sometimes in Japan it was always a kind of the Japanese thing was out there visiting a grandparent you know a father is Japanese but I don't live with him I'm half Japanese buttered speak the language everything was out there I do want to bring it in USA and the other reason is because I feel physically sto different in Japan feel at peace I for happy and at peace I'm not not happy and not at peace in my life here in Sydney currently but there's always some feeling that's not quite rush slight sense of homesickness that can come in different levels of waves but it's it's so hard to explain get off the plane there and it's always been this way as long as I can remember even as a tiny little child I remember feeling just weightless when I go to Japan and that's the other thing I'm really curious about and I think about it my my blood is half Japanese my jeans a half Japanese this genetic memory in those streets my dad ran down those streets and so yes to hear my name they're meant so much because my history my Japanese history is not just like you so nicely put it years zero do you think there's a real dilemma an tournus that is very difficult to resolve we do like resolution I can understand in a way that if shoes at least you've made a choice you kind of got this is where I am but I I find it quite challenging a lot of people say who so lucky to have two cultures and is a great that you can have these two identities and yes that's true but I do find it quite challenging what does that mean now for my future if I know that I feel really comfortable Cohen Japan does that mean I have to pick up sticks and move there does that mean how does that mean that I keep to keep feeding my sense of self from my sense of identity without ripping myself away from where I am so no I don't think you have to choose but but I wonder how you then have to navigate your life to feed all parts of yourself it's all the time I mean if you live there maybe after a couple years you get real jack of having this constant creeping `round the subject rather than and I recognize that so maybe part of me doesn't want to go there in case that does happen but I suspect it wouldn't I suspect that you know every time I go back I never get sick of the same oh how long ago there for how many conversations you have it's a sense of your body and everything about yourself feeling at peace and so I don't think that peace can be necessarily ripped away by living there for two years and getting slightly frustrated by the culture maybe that's when you really would be a part of the country once you funny you've been listening to a podcast of conversations with Richard

"Everyone it's Cardiff. And I'm joining the studio today by Pamela boy, cough. She's back from Japan, Pamela. Hey, hey, Cardiff. Good to be back. Awesome. Having you back and you brought us the story. And it is about how Japan's Prime Minister Shinzo Abay came up with this big idea back in twenty thirteen when he realized there was this resource. That's the right word that he could tap into to help. Japan's sluggish economy start growing faster. It wasn't like natural gas or a technology. It was women women as resources. Yes. It's a little uncomfortable to say that. But this is economics after all. Yeah. And that's what you're pan decided to do. Traditionally a lot of Japanese women dropped out of the workforce when they had kids so many in fact that a prominent economists back then estimated the country could add as much as thirteen percent to its GDP if it could close the gender gap implement, which by the way is like a huge gain. And all it had to do was. To have as many women work as men are working. Right. Right. Sounds easy. But we know not that easy. Not that easy. But schinder did make it in a fischel policy to get more women into the Japanese workforce. And the idea he came up with even had a catchy nickname women. Onyx? This is not just an issue for Japan, by the way, countries like Norway in Sweden. They brag about how gender equality helped boost their GDP growth and here in the US. Economists say that we could be growing a lot faster. If more women were employed on today's indicator we find out how after six years Japan's doing and its.

"Now back to the story Tidwell quest for the sunken. I fifty two lead him I the national archives in Washington DC, author, Richard and billings and former collaborator with Tidwell states. Quote, Tidwell began searching for the I fifty two with no preconceived notions. Other than a long held belief that whenever ship goes down with cargo of gold. It must be accounted for by someone and quote, John Taylor a World War, Two scholar gave Tidwell a crucial tip the messages between Japan and Germany during World War Two had just been declassified by the navy, and they were all at the national archive available to the public to wealth found what he needed the files in the archive confirmed that the I fifty to carry two tonnes of gold Tidwell realized that if he had discovered this information so easily he would need to act fast. It wouldn't be. Long before other salvage operations came to the archive and made the same discovery. And fortunately for Tidwell quick was relative it took eight years to put a proper salvage operation together. The main obstacle was funding. There was also the obstacle of the Japanese government who had rightful claim to the I fifty two submarine and its treasure under US law. A salvager owns the rights to any wreck ship. They discover but worships are a different matter and nations have the right to lay claim to specific worships that is to say, even if it were possible to salvage the treasure inside. The I fifty two Tidwell worried that the Japanese government could claim the I fifty two as their property Tidwell hope to get ahead of this potential obstacle to that end he met with Japanese officials. He claimed that he was as interested in the historical significance of the ship. As he wasn't a goal. He even offered to return any personal effects. And human remains. He found Japan Tidwell left these meetings hopeful though, we hadn't been given explicit permission to keep the gold. If he founded he knew he had some leverage. This was especially true. Given the likelihood that any gold on board. The I fifty two had originally been looted from China in the first place in an interview with National Geographic for documentary called search for the submarine. I fifty two Tidwell said, quote, a lot of people think it's about two tonnes of gold. Maybe at first it was it was pretty exciting for me too. But later, it wasn't about gold at all. It was about the story in history and uncovering something that no one else knew about end, quote, Tidwell visited the families of those that lost their lives on the I fifty two mission and promised to bring up any remains that he may find he also promised to treat the I fifty two as gravesite and so avoided. Any intent from the Japanese government to claim the treasure inside, the submarine Tidwell considered himself a historian I and to salvage your second. He couldn't pass up on the opportunity to discover something new. However, he did not have the financial backing to salvage. What was inside? The I fifty two descending to twelve thousand feet below the surface of the ocean isn't your average cruise for starters, the human body cannot survive those depths without the protection of a submarine or other kind of pressurized submersible vehicle, even the most skilled scuba divers can only reach depths of thousand feet, a salvage operation on this scale needed sea submarines was saws and other salvage gear making multiple trips to the bottom of the Atlantic Ocean that sort of operation would take weeks and caused millions of dollars. And that's when Jim Philip own comes into the story..
