Where i can get my nails done and i was looking through some of the options available for one of the spas and they had several eyelash options and it got me to thinking. What does the history of eyelash alterations look like. Oh history throughout history and it turns out there is a long and storied history of eyelash fucker. I would think that it was based on like hieroglyphs and pictures. Pictographs picked a glimpse that i've seen ancient egypt was way into i make up of all sorts all sorts sore shore the ancient egyptians did use -pointment and various types of brushes to achieve of fluttering kind of fanned out eyelash. Look they used coal and malachite to darken the lashes and in ancient egypt. Men often would use more lash. Cd-roms than females would because they were out working in the hot sun and they thought it protected there is no from glare and from from the sun's rays. So is that how would he vault in the egyptian culture or is that's just something they did well as also pretty well. Yeah i want to look pretty when you're chipping away at granite blocks that's right and it worked out because Galina one of the components that was used as an eye cosmetic was also an effective insect repellent and a disinfectant so they thought it was really a multipurpose several coal pots were found in tombs during archaeological excavations including tuned on komo loans in thebes.

"No not to smoke to eat. I wanted to chew on cigarette butts not the cigarette. Just the squishy end. That usually means. Somebody's mouth yeah. Just a cigarette but she. She said i never did it. Thank god but i really wanted to all right. That sounds like a form of pica. It's interesting that might be something that reminds her of her body needs because so often are cravings are connected to something that our body actually is in demand of. I worked with the woman who when pregnant experienced some symptoms of pica. She wanted she craved laundry. Detergent ness never of course eight it. She wanted to number four melon melon and more mellon. There was a two week stretch. And my first trimester where i eight cantaloupe like. It was going out of style likely because my body needed the vitamin c. But it is not something. I normally gravitate toward. That'd be so weird to be craving something that you didn't really like number three meat but only the kind you eat with your hands. she said. This is vaguely embarrassing. But when i was pregnant all i wanted was chicken wings and one of them saucy and spicy and i wanted to eat them with my bare hands. Must be some sort of an evolutionary thing with that it must be number two. I craved taco bell all the time anytime we discussed lunch or dinner options taco bell was the first thing i thought of fire sauce was the key. Not mild hot or diablo. It had to be fire. I had an entire drawer in the kitchen of fire sauce packets. So we'd always have it on hand just smart and number one a weird combination fried eggs. Np's oh yeah the box of oddities with cat and jethro gilligan off. We've been hiding under your bed for the past two hundred shows and you know what you really need to that. You wonder here is the box of oddities you know. At the beginning of the podcast. You mentioned your friends. Post about was a helpful. Post about Naming your inner negative voice so that you know who to shout down when they start telling you you're the worst person alive very helpful. Here's another helpful tip jill since this message and it just don't ever pet the tongue of a killer whale. I cannot commit to this no matter how much they beg. She says their taste buds or the size of quarters. And you got to really get up in there. The stench is putrid. I did it without gloves. I'd became an untouchable for exactly five and a half days. And is it kind of like snake poop. Wear the smell will stick with you even after you wash your hands. Maybe that's interesting. Jill is the person who she wrote to us earlier about working with free willy. So yeah so. This was a follow up about willie banging his six foot penis on the glass wall of his aquarium. Free as willie thanks jill. You're very helpful. Well once again. I trolled the darkest corners of the interwebs to find ways. Law enforcement. officials are going to show up at our house. We've been tracking. You're googling history. When i say the darkest part of the internet i mean read it. It's about as dark as i get on the internet but these are some stories that people shared about glitches in the matrix. Oh that they experienced hedgerow snuffed ler rights. That's not a real name. A long time ago ahead of conversation with an old workmate who described the following the details hazy but he said one day he was in his house and he felt a sudden need to go outside and stand on his lawn he claimed it was the strongest clearest feeling ever in undoing so he experienced a sort of wobble he just said everything was kind of screwed up for a moment any experienced a feeling of detachment an outside nece. When it passed he turned around to go back inside while he talked to me. He got quite upset at this point and asked me not to think he was crazy okay. The next thing he saw was car parked in the street and it was the same model. Same registration different color way. What he was so thrown by this and then even more so because his wife came out to ask him what he was doing and he said he realized she was in all appearance his wife but somehow not his wife he said from that point on she liked foods that she had claimed to hate before sometimes brought up memories he he had zero relation to. He said things like his route to work was still the same but somehow different. He said there were buildings along the way that either he had missed in the six years he had driven passed them for five days a week or just appeared overnight. He even said some people he remembered from other departments work had just vanished and asked about them and people around him had no idea who he was talking about my goodness he was completely regular healthy guy but he said he measured his life in relation to that afternoon he went on to say he was now living his life with a feeling of about fifteen percent of it had spontaneously changed that one afternoon. This makes me think of two things one cap gross syndrome. Which is the one where you have this. Feeling that people in your life have been replaced or that you know something in your life has been an impostor is taking its place. It also reminds me of the movie dark city which you might remember The strangers come in at night and make everyone kind of go to sleep and then they change things around and see how people respond to their lives. Being completely changed now. They can't explain. Why or how fascinating concept. I think it's interesting that he can anchor it to one moment in time. Yeah makes me think that. Did he have some sort of a stroke or a series of mini strokes. Perhaps i don't know i'm not a doctor. I sat next to one one time. Well maybe that's when the strangers put him to sleep. That could be anyway. We should watch dark city from your a moron. I was catching the sky train in one particular city about fifteen minutes from where i get off while a wait there. A woman with glazed is was asking people for money. She came up to me. She stopped briefly and asked. Excuse me could you spare money my brothers in the hospital and i'd like to buy him some flowers and i'm thinking that's rich. People are getting more and more obvious with their line so i gave her five dollars without looking interface convinced her intentions by train pulls up. I got on. I look through the glass at her. She's still walking around on the train station asking other people for money as the train pulls away. The train arrives at my destination. Fifteen minutes later. I walked down. Get on a bus after about five or ten minutes travelling the driver pulls over for a routine stop the doors open into my complete astonishment. That woman from the sky train walks onto the bus with a dozen roses in hand. She looks me right in the eye as she takes her seat next to me. How blue hell did she get there. I took the train before her. I watched her at the train. Stop from inside as we pulled away. I win over a river. I caught the first and only boss going in this particular direction and not only did she beat me there. She had time to go.

Clean out your intestinal track and You're right. It might be helpful though especially because so often I don't I fail to check for toilet paper before I go to the bathroom and so I could just be like, Hey, cloak guy. Can you spare a spectral square that was a little game that we played with each other for a while is we would go and not remove the toilet paper from the bathroom, but just put it in an awkward place like hanging from the light fixture I never played that came with you remember hiding the toilet paper.

"Hand on the computer. And from about that area I saw this. Flash of bright white light in like a ball shape rate about the time that the thunder rolled and lightning flashed outside the window. So there was this huge thunder and lightning moment, and then this weird ball of light near my husband. Yeah. Well, I didn't have the computer. Plug. Dan. Operating on battery all right now. Which I'm glad. But our control board in our speakers are all plugged in. My Ring Finger of my left hand was touching right hand. Yeah. The right hand touching the board touching the the control board when that happened and I felt an electrical shock and charge and saw a bright flash. And then you know everything shut down and even though the computer wasn't plugged into the wall was plugged into the sound card and it stopped recording and then we went upstairs and got a beer. Because Holy Shit I felt that I thought our house was hit by lightning needed to I mean I screamed and then I asked you are you okay like nineteen times and you said nothing stunned maybe we should wait to start recording again. It's moved off. Okay fine. But you almost heard me get fried live I had goosebumps my hair with standing on and I went outside I circled the house to make sure that we hadn't been hit nothing was on fire. Everything looks okay. It's smells amazing. It's very ionized. So amazing. The it's like we got buckets of rain in about five minutes Oh inhale yeah, Hill freaked me out. All right. So we're okay. Equipment survived, which is a real testament to the surge protect protector. Yeah. The the fact that. I could feel that coming out of the mixing board and it did no damage is beyond I don't understand that maybe some of you guys who are experts in this field was that ball lightning or What the hell was that I don't know I help us. I. Really. I would like someone to be able to answer what it was that just happened to us because I've never seen anything like. I'm a little nervous to be recording now to be honest. I think we're fine. We're fine. All right back to the story. Okay. But just going to yell the whole time. I super jacked up. The loot guard marital discord, and the presence of Louise's wedding ring in the vet were damning, right? And Loot Gertz defensive using three hundred, seventy eight pounds of potash to make soap to clean the factory was ridiculous right? Because his mixture would have made two thousand pounds of soap. Much more than he needed, he would have been able to clean his factory several times over and it was far more expensive than just buying soap right? Lewd Gert was convicted and sentenced to life in prison on February ninth eighteen, Ninety, eight, eighteen months later on June seventh eighteen, ninety, nine he was found dead in his cell at the Illinois State Penitentiary. The official cause of his death was quote Fatty Degenerative Heart Disease Probably due to all the sausages probably But he maintained his innocence throughout his short incarceration right up till the end. Of. People who murder people do the idea that the ring was in there. It's one of two things he he killed her or like you said, she set him up gone girl his ass, and it's interesting that the frantic anthropologists from today say that the anthropological work that was done back then was very unlikely that they could have determined that it was a human bone let alone. Doesn't mean that it was or wasn't rights and the fact that there were people that said that there were several sightings of her around the country during before and after all of this took place so. Probably, he did it. Yeah. But. There's some question there. What we do know for a fact is that Mrs. Lewd Guard was not made into sausages. That's kind of where I thought it was going to. For. Sure. Comforting. There's something comforting about that information from an article in Atlas Obscure. As from wikipedia now I really WanNa Watch gone girl and the House on haunted him. That thing in the middle. In a dark corner of the Internet, a health therapist shared this story. It seems that one of their schizophrenic clients claim to be seeing a girl in his room. The patient said that not only would this girl come to his room, but she would talk to him. Now the therapist understandably believe this to be a hallucination as the patient was staying alone in their room. The consulting doctor decided to challenge the delusion by asking the patient to take a picture so they could meet this girl. During the next visit he brought a picture, they described the photo. This way quote he was sitting on the couch with his head down very depressed looking. To our astonishment, there was a strange creamy ghost like image of a girl hovering behind him, shrouding him in white wings or hair a subtle shimmering image. Everyone examined the picture and we all thought it looked real since the patient was very low functioning and could not have shopped it. The doctor suspecting medication wouldn't be effective in this case said. I can't help you with this. You may need to consult your clergy. The box of oddities with cat and JETHRO Gilligan off if this podcast ever calls you on your cell phone, the caller ID will say scam likely. You should answer anyway. This is the box oddities. David Rightaid cat and JETHRO big fan of the box of bodies for about a year I've been dying to write to you about this, but I'm only now just getting around to it. I'm originally from L. A. But I'm writing to you from London where I've been living for the past two years Oh. So Fassino back in March I was writing the tube and that does sound saucy. That's the subway m thinking that's what they call the subway and I noticed the guy who was wearing a box of audit t-shirt. No. So obviously, I struck up a conversation with him. We've been together now for five months. Would have thought. I'd travel halfway around the world to find my soul freak I love that term only soul freak I am weeping. Thanks for bringing us together David and Kenny. That's wow. Can that be real? That is I want it to be. That's pretty great I. Think it's amazing though that somebody in England is wearing shirts that's to me with the most amazing part of the story for sure. Wait someone listens the podcast. Sometimes it's easy to forget that it is thanks, David. We appreciate that so much. I just WanNa see this button works. What do you got for me? What you would you? Would you? All right sounds. Good Yeah I know you're delighted to know that. Better, check again what you Okay. Oh I'm going to try not to scream this whole issue. Okay. I am a little jacked up and as you know sometimes I have a hard time controlling the volume of my voice when I'm excited about something. That's okay we understand. We all know where you're coming from. Not long ago, we were laying in bed I was telling you something you were like Whoa I'm right here. On new talk.

"Already we are here with Janelle Shane from a awareness. Who knows more about a then? Alan, Iverson Gino. How you doing today and get great. I'm doing great as well. Thank you so much for making the time today, and this is really neat because you have such a unique and really cool background and. To put it in. Perspective I I know a little bit about artificial intelligence. I thought I knew a decent amount and then I, read your wikipedia page, and like I pretty much needed definition for everything on this page, so this is going to be an interesting interview. Yeah glad to define anything I'm working on science. Education is a large part of what I think. It is I do yeah, yeah. I would say so also for perspective back in episode eighty five. We had on cat and JETHRO Gilligan top from the box of oddities, which is a podcast that literally talks about the weirdest and most unusual stories out there and I thought that would be the weirdest interview ever, but now that we have a awareness on I think you're going to give them a run for their money so so a lot to look forward to in this. WE'RE GONNA? Get into a awareness and your book is well, but before we get into that and kind of the world of artificial intelligence. What do you think you'd be doing? If a I did not exist and instead of artificial intelligence? We're left with lowly. Intelligence Well, you know I might be still blogging about something I've had previous blogs. I had one where I was sharing pictures from an electron microscope, and actually there's pictures of all of my experiment had failed, but on the microscopic scale they look really cool. Because you get these grand etching failures that looked like the Grand Canyon, and they look like you know there was supposed to be a part there had been completely. You know etched away into this great natural landscape, so I had a blog that was full of pictures of. failures I also have a blog for wild on minecraft blog, whereas riding a horse around doing class, so yeah people talking about something. No idea what you're a natural blogger. Then what is it you like about the blogging space and sharing your message and forms of entertainment in that form? I really like the storytelling. The sharing when I come across something that I think is oh. This is so cool. This is so fun. This is such a good story and I really want to tell other people, and if there's nobody immediately there, or I can't tell it to fifty people at once than putting it on a blog is one way to do that. It is certainly as. In from your standpoint, what defines a good story because every you hear so much about? These days, but what's the difference from your perspective, and after telling so many unique and interesting stories for so many years? What makes it a gem from your standpoint? You know it's. Learning about something new that maybe didn't know about before or seeing something new about before, but in a different way I mean one thing I really like to try. Do have all of my sings that I write make people feel better at the end of reading. either. They learned something cool or they were entertained. Yeah, really the sort of wholesome feel-good like there's enough stressful stuff out there so I'm really trying to. Make It nice. Absolutely well, it's a good mission to get behind. Okay, so that's that's an there's going to be held US ends. That's in the fictional world where artificial intelligence does not exist so back into the real world where you have done so much with Ai. How'd you get into? And become interested in researching this giant. Curious subject matter in the first place. Okay so in two thousand and two. I was a entering freshman at Michigan. State University, and this was back before neural networks and artificial intelligence were a commercial thing like you know two thousand ten with Google translate all of these other. Applications had not happened yet. Your networks where these were this weird curiosity that people did know that was going to amount to anything, and so when I went to this lecture by Professor Eric Goodman like I had. Not heard of this before and many people hadn't, but he would talk about this computer program that was learning how to solve problems, a trial and error so rather than being given explicit instructions, it was being given the goal, and then via a lot of trial and errors to try and. Reach a solution somehow, and what really struck me then was how bizarre these solutions could be so if you told it to. Design say a car bumper that would crumple just the right way in an accident. It would design something that looked like a keynote K. battle like some kind of alien wasps or something's weird organic structure, and it would crumble beautifully, and nobody really understood why it worked or how what principles would use it. And then there would be other cases where they would give the algorithm a problem like okay sort sort this list of numbers, but what would do instead of sorting list? It was technically cold just to minimize the number of. Sorting errors, so it would delete the entire list, and technically that solution to the problem so seeing examples like this just made me go. Wow, he'll. This is like nature, but it's off a computer and I really want to get into learning about this and so I. Did Start Doing Research with that professor and then. Looked at applying it to some optics work because I was also interested in laser light, so I started using it in a nearby optics lab at Saint University until I am. We all understood the optics enough to realize that we need be A. Net. Actually is the goal of solving problem with a and a lot of cases is the AI? Is really a solution of last resort. If you can solve the problem using some well-controlled equation are well understood strategy. That would be better. For problems that are way too complicated ai can sometime the away to solve it so in this particular case, the problem we're trying to solve was not very complicated as attorney doubt. After a bunch of poking around trying to set the. Correctly we realized that Oh. Yeah. We can get the same effect just by like turning the power of earlier doubt in its having. You know nothing sophisticated needed here. So that of got me more into lasers and less into doing a I until round. Twenty fifteen, twenty sixteen, when neural networks of where thing again and I came across the blog posts where somebody had. Used a text generating neuro network.

"So only a little bit of time left Swapo with a couple of quicker segments here first. One is the unusual. So you know since everything we've talked about safari been so normal. Let's talk about the unusual for a little bit pet peeves quirks and weird talents. So you guys can fight for who gets to go first for each of these but love to hear from both you. What is your biggest pet peeve? People that aren't kind of got one you know. This world is so divisive right now and it's so US versus them and and we need to remember that were all on the same team here and when when people just they get snippy on social media? That's my pet peeve. Yeah that's a great one if people who don't use their blinkers yeah. Yeah yeah years was better though years years had a little more heart to sorry. I think those are both equally impactful depending on how much Dr Olives. I just hate all. I Love Olives. She hates all when it olives and I bring them home. She actually did this. She steamed the label off of jar of olives and created a new one in the Jessica vomit. Bits in and put it back in the cupboard like two months to notice them. I can't imagine why they don't just call him that on shelf. I know She here's another example of whatever it is we're talking about I can't told me one time. She hated sleeveless black shirts immediately. Went out and bought one and wouldn't stop wearing it. While I was away for an afternoon she took the shirt and soaked in water and put it in the freezer. That's where it ended up. Oh my God well Jeff Slowly actually quickly learning that we have the same exact wardrobe. How about quirks? What is the actually? I love to hear you guys talk about each other. What would you say is the biggest quirky thing about your co host slash partner slash? Whatever title you want cat always homes the theme to the old. Tv show. I dream of Jeannie. When she's passing traffic she'll put the blinker on and get out by the car. And then she'll don Don Don Don. Every time on average I love that. You're so endearing. Why are you so quick to answer these questions? You went through cat. Oh I have a list. He's been taking notes on everything you know. I guess so. Yeah I'm not as great a note keeping I guess You know I think everyone's got little quirks and it's hard especially when you've been together and live together as long as we have For them not kind of just meld into everyday stuff like I don't even notice some of the weird things that I used to notice about you because it's just normal normal though it's not you know it's not a real thing it's just. Oh that's just my J. Lewd today right. How about weird talents with something that you guys are exceptionally good at each of you but it could be something totally random like it could be like a memory trick or. I don't know like hanging your bra and door or something. I'm so good at that. I'm actually actually did this at one of our live shows because we had a question from the audience.

"Let's get to a segment on inspiration and creativity. So I have to ask where the hell did he. Stories come from all different sources oftentimes will find an article and within that article will be some little fact and it'll send us off in a different direction and we'll end up doing an entire episode on just one little piece of a larger story because that little pieces You know so interesting I got an idea for an episode from fledging law and order. Svu recently. And I thought well. If that's real that would be a great topic so I looked it up what they were talking about and it was in fact real also we recently Especially have been receiving a ton of topic suggestions from People who listen to the show so again people do on our work forest. It's really nice world thumbs up about that because basically we're lazy. Max is what we're trying to say there. It is okay. I was trying to you. Know it's going to have to probe a little bit more but no that is I mean it really is I guess your job it gets easier and the effect that you get more suggestions from people but Kinda gets tougher this time because then you have to be way more selective. Well that's the beauty of the Internet. There's no end to it. You know you can't finish the Internet and I think we go about it differently than we did when we first started. There were a ton of stories that that we both had backlogged. Just things that we were gonNA tell each other that we were able to translate into an episode or by the ten refers ten. We had planned out in advance. And Yeah you know you do a story. You can't do it again. But there are as I said before millions of little things in maybe a larger story that can inspire you to to find a new topic that way and the people who will send a suggestions Also will sometimes send presence so not long ago One of our listeners sent me the dictionary of folklore and these are these new books. They're huge. They probably wave or you pounds and it just chalk of delights from a different parts of history and different parts of the world so I mean just that book is more episodes than I could ever do on my God. That's insane is is crazy like when you really think that there are endless stories out there so it's just how diligent you are about finding them in your approach to it On that note though. What is the most random gift ever received the oddest one was at our show in DC? A couple of weeks ago. Somebody brought us a wet specimen. It's our very first wet specimen. You always remember your first wet Ashton. Grandpa congrats on that a raccoon heart with a snake right through the middle of the heart. Uk's in a jar of alcohol all right. That sounds like the gifts. I get as just the thing to brighten up our Dan. How are we gonNA pack this and get this home cutting the TSA? Explain this if only you guys knew what you were signing up for when he created the show that's it that's what you signed up for the right. We can actually shut down the show now. I have my snake through heart. I'm all set. How on the creativity side? What do you guys do to to stay creative and coming up with creative things to share out? Well we like to share things from our personal life and tell stories weird things that have happened to us in real life before we will go ahead and share our researched material and so we carry notebooks around. I mean it's you know not nothing novel air but we we've become much better at writing things down. Things will strike US funny or odd throughout the day. Something cat says that Strikes Me Funny. I'll write it down because I'll bring it up later in otherwise I forget so. It's it's just a matter of organizing your thoughts in keeping track of things that we all get good ideas but I think that it's just really easy to forget them. So we right. We write it down. It's so helpful because then you don't have to worry about remembering. Yeah here's an example. I wrote this down the other night we were. We were listening to music on on the ECHO. The Amazon Echo. We play a little game will choose a topic and We have to pick songs. We take turns picking songs within the specific category and it was vacation songs because we were getting ready to go on vacation and so I picked one and I it was Pina Colada. Yeah some some cheesy. Yeah Song that and then cat says. Alexa play rain of blood by slayer and and that just struck me funny. You know so I wrote it down and maybe I'll work it in some. Oh I just did okay we go. Oh my God okay. My brain is about to explode so you guys so I guess everything's technically on the record. Then if you guys are writing everything down easy yeah. Well they're in certain things that you know but we do share it. We do share it. Incredibly personal information for example cat has a video secrecy whenever she sits down to pee she runs her hands together like that starting a fire. That was one thing. You didn't want me to talk about okay. I didn't mean to say that I meant to say she always hangs her bras on the bathroom door on the door handle but on the outside so when I go to close at the door of the brow will fly in and get jammed between the door in the in the in the door. Jamb and I got trapped in there. Oh no you got attacked by Ross. I didn't get attacked by BRAS. But the door. Jamb the the DOORKNOB got stock. The Bra and I couldn't get the door open. I had to crawl out the window. We're certainly working against him. Yes you'd think with. All the supported help the door but certainly help you abreast of things. Oh God so you guys know that was that was their fault or can it draw this one out so you guys clearly have like incredible Camaraderie and How meters you've been married almost five years. We've been together for a decade okay. Well congrats on that. I'm just think congratulate you on everything else Dan. Yeah I have breakfast morning congrats on you but you guys have such great camaraderie. Is there ever a Mo- I kind of? I mean you definitely have like a playful vibe. When you're you're teasing each other but is there ever a moment where you guys are actually Upset that somebody shared something or upset that something was revealed whether it be your Bra in the door or not. Yeah I mean there. There have been times where you know. We'll kind of stop and go is that is that something we want to put out there and you know it's. I think it's one of those things that I'm not as far as our personal lives go. Were Pretty Open with that? But sometimes it's maybe an opinion. Yeah is a great approach. And what about outside of the box of parties outside the box? Think outside the box here. So what hobbies do you guys have like what? How do you like to spend your free time when you're not maybe when you're not taking notes? I don't remember Free Time Voice. There was a time was a time we we liked travel at. That's that's the thing that I wanna do above all else. It's why I do other things is so I can go places. Yeah Yeah that's our number one passion but as far as hobbies. I think a lot of what we enjoy doing lends itself very well to producing this podcast because we both like to read. We both liked to watch documentaries. We find enjoyment in just gathering. Strange knowledge you guys know. Yeah and it's true Max but the truth comes out. I enjoy woodworking. I built a bookcase once you did. It was really nice. It's a best bookcase. Thank you sweetie. You're welcome you guys are so cute. So let's get to a fan. Favourite segment called the wild business shadow of the week. Business out of the week while business out of the week. This is where we talk about a brand campaign that caught her attention. And this is going to be a mystery edition. So what do you guys want to cover for your while? Business shout or shouts of the week. Absolutely we were on a trip not long ago and we were watching. Tv and a commercial came on and we both laughed and laughed and laughed and then after it was over I was like that was great. You're talking about the Hyundai Sonata. Commercial Smart Park. Have you seen? Have you seen that one? Mack Matt Mack Smart. I'm I'm not sure Smart Park. It's you know a feature that Hyundai has where their their car but it's It's being discussed by people from Boston. So it's like smack pack a pack it in the Habur. I packed it in the habit. It's John Krasinski Rachel and Chris. Oh Oh yeah yeah. They're all from Boston. And they so their their original accents laying come out hard and so they're talking about the the benefits of snap hack I really appreciate that. We're from New England where we live in Maine and Bangor Maine homeless. Stephen King a will actually live in Stephen King's home. That's right little basement. Don't tell him you really. Well congrats on that thanks again. It's very supportive had breakfast as well. We're very we're very familiar with regional accents and we love love it when people make fun of it. It's funny.

"Person. I guess at one time in in a cave in Cheddar France and what was interesting was he lived less than twenty kilometers from that cave. His family didn't get out much. I guess you know and stuff like that fascinating. Anything that connects yesterday with today in an indirect in direct connection in a in a direct line is fascinating to me that we can reach back in time that far and touch it. I have a terrible memory. So those very casual segway. I like it sometimes. People will be like what are you talking about it and like I don't know I have nothing for everybody. Turn the lights off in Close the blinds Let's get it out. There have been times where I have brought to the table story. That my my loveliest here. We'll go. Yeah we've talked about or You know but I we actually have a couple of amazing people who follow the podcast who have created Charts for me. I know what we've talked about. Yeah that's the type of audience participation that we encourage when they do take Abbott. You had a story one time that just blew my mind and it was the woman who kept getting robbed at various hotels. You know she would go from town to town. And she had this trunk of jewels with her and it was like this treasure trove of of staff that the whole town like was enamored. Where did she get this? What is she doing with it? It's incredible she'd go from hotel to hotel and she kept getting robbed. And then it was uncovered. That in the trunk was not actually Treasures it was a very small person that she kept in the trunk. And when the keepers of the hotels would stash the trunk for her he would break out in the middle of the night and steal all their stuff and put it much ron and caught me like off guard and I was so surprised that I just started yelling. I love this story so much. That's that's the kind of thing that I loved. I love a SIP. And that's why we don't tell each other what we're gonNA talk about. Because I love being surprised with the story I love zig rather than a zag. Oh I see what you did there. I'm Azad myself. The we all know that but that the surprise part is brilliant because it just adds to it and you hear that you hear that in like the in the movie or TV show world is well that sometimes some of the best scenes in movies are when one of the actors or actresses doesn't know what's coming or something that's a surprise from another cast member. That's it's I love that you guys take that approach is well and the the words that keep coming up our love in fascination which is just I guess. Passionate a nutshell. But that's that's what you guys that you guys focus on so it's is no mystery why you guys are motivated to keep putting out and sharing these incredible stories. We we really enjoy telling bazaar an odd stories and some of them. Frankly can get pretty dark pretty dark. Yeah thanks cat but we always we always try to be Accepting we try to promote kindness and acceptance. I think more more than anything. And that's a weird combination when you think about it. You're doing a story about some person that's been beheaded and then trying to work some humor into it as well as as being sweet and loving and you can't lose her head over Yeah Right. Exactly which is why we came up with It's not really a positioning statement. But the tagline for our podcast is the box of oddities the podcast with a heart and sometimes entrails imagine. You started your own podcast. You're growing your brand sharing.

"Not exaggerate here. Let's get to the box of oddities. Not sure if you guys have heard of that but Fox's oddities so for anybody WHO's listening. Who hasn't listened to box oddities yet? I already mentioned. It's an incredible show and captain. Kindly pay me for that after the show but the concept is very simple and one of you and you guys switch off who goes first but either cat or death row will share a bizarre story and there's that thing in the middle and then either cat or jeter who hasn't shared we'll share another story and so it's such a simple concept it's beautiful I don't know if it's ever been described as beautiful before it has now. So how did you guys iron out that concept in the first place to get point? Well I am a list writer. I have notebooks and I treasure my notebooks and they have to be a specific Size and weight and thickness of paper and I love love love notes and lists and graphs and so we. We literally sat down on the couch with multicolored sharpies and notebooks. And we just worked out like how would this flow? Well what is it that we want to accomplish? How do we want to get that across? How will we make it sound? Good and palatable and So we even took into consideration like okay. Well what if you have like this length commute okay? Well maybe you have time for one story. How long should that be? And we? We tried to consider lots of different things But at the same time make it accessible and I of course beautiful on my notepad right the idea was that we wanted to create the types of conversations that we had in our house so we would start. I would tell her a story and when we record it. She doesn't know what I'm going to talk about in in in vice versa. I imagined nobody does. That's been an issue Max at has and then we wanted to to break the the stories up for a number of different reasons. One was just somebody actually in a review on. Itunes refer to the thing in the middle as pallet cleanser. I hadn't thought about that but yeah it's kind of you know when we were done with this. Here's a little bonus thing and now we're going to do something else. Here's a small cup of coffee beans to smell When before the next fragrance and then and then in plus a we thought it would thinking ahead as far as flow of the show went if this show becomes successful and we do get advertisers. How are we going to get in and out of the commercials more seamlessly you know but but also at the same time in an organized way And we thought well we'll do this thing in the middle and then the most logical thing for commercials would be to place them after that before the next segment so there was a strategy behind that. Yeah so you guys didn't just like roll a paradise and see what comes up and that's how you figure it out. No no okay. That's stresses me out. Just thinking of it started on the notebooks. You guys have had incredible growth wild business growth just to put some random words together and you guys have just had so much success in the podcasting space when you think of all the different things you've done and try it out because everybody knows it's such a commitment would you say is the biggest growth driver for you guys as far as growing the box about his. Well control what you can control it. When we first started in nobody was listening we could control the quality of the content or try to do the best job that that we could and then to do it consistently and very early on we We took a bit of a gamble. I think we'd only been maybe doing the show for two months and we were doing one episode a week very early on maybe sixty eighty ninety days into it. We said let's do two a week. We had no advertisers. It was a big commitment but we wanted to demonstrate to anybody listening that we were committed to this that we weren't just going to you know dump twenty shows and leave that this was a long term commitment for us and we felt that that would make people feel as though it will make it easier for them to commit to us and commit to the young to to subscribing and We've just hit a two hundred episodes and we've never missed a drop date not one. Congratulations who thank you. It's been grueling. We we went on a brief live show tour During Halloween and we had put. I don't know how like six or eight episodes in the can before we went to meet that commitment that was that was a big Gel. Yeah I appreciate any challenge on the CAM. I don't at my age. No I don't need any more challenges word from OUR SPONSOR CECIL tablet. Thank you for that. Yeah I've been trying out that contract. When was the moment that you guys realize? Hey we're actually we have something cooking here you know. This isn't a little hobby that we're just going to each listen to like. There's there's something big going here I don't know and it was for you. Maybe when Jimmy Kimmel tweeted us out then I thought okay. Yeah that's probably not not a bad thing to happen to you right. That was yeah I think even then I was still like higher. No you know I tend to be a safety kind of person. I don't want to get too excited about something and I mean I believed in what we were doing. But I've seen so many podcasts. Not do well and so I think it was a little bit later for me and maybe when maybe when we hit a million downloads I was like Oh okay yeah yeah okay? Yeah I remember we were at. I remember the first month that we we did the show. I think we had thirty downloads month. Or maybe a hundred or something like that and we were feeling pretty good about that and we hit a. We hit a thousand. I remember that moment it was maybe six weeks into it and we were at home depot and we took a picture of US celebrating our first thousand downloads and a lumber. I'll in the lumber I'll and And then just watching. It gained some traction over the next few months was such a joy. Because it's like our baby gain. We care very much about this. This project in this product and the fact that people seem to to like it Is Very gratifying. We're we're we're so grateful for for this opportunity that we've been given it's it's been a lot of fun watching it grow to be grateful for the Lumber. I'll as well. Oh Yeah I mean I. Every day I wake up and I give thanks for would that. That's probably most people so no it is cool. You can feel your passion for what you do and when you listen to the show you just hear it and you guys are such. You're both such amazing storyteller so that obviously helps but in addition to what you actually put out from the contents. It's Kinda there's so much behind. The scenes is far as being diligent in keeping yourself focused on putting these episodes out and not missing a week or or a a bye week as as you mentioned another part of what I like about your show. So much is the auditees aspects. So that might come as a huge shocker to you but there's something to this concept of being odd being weird being bizarre which kind of I think you hear it in the business world a lot about standing out or being different or zigging when someone's zagging. There's so many idioms like we just we. We don't need to go down that rabbit hole just use another idiom Jesus but but you guys have created like you are happy to be weird and freaks in bazaar out there and it's totally helped you stand out. Who What do you? What do you like about having your brand or pockets? Be that way that it's that it is so different community. Yeah no question about that. This community has kind of built up around the PODCAST. The kind of celebrates freaked him. You will they like that. The people that that I mean it catches in an early episode. Just threw out at the end of the episode. Keep flying that freak flag and so it's become kind of like our sign off but people who listen have taken that word friggin in started wearing it like a badge of honor. Yeah I'm a freak. I like the fact that I'm different in. That's I think one of the coolest things that we weren't expecting to see. Yeah pretty early on. We got an email from a woman whose young daughter was interested in weird things. She had an interest in the macabre and Was into like vampires just had a lot of interests that other kids didn't think were cool and so when she wrote to us and said that when she and her kid. We're listening to this podcast. Her child was just so excited to hear that there were people who were jazzed about the idea that she was different. And we're difference and we're okay I mean you know relatively standard And And she can be to and they just she mukund right onto the idea that it's okay to be weird and that to us was just everything Yeah it is a okay more than okay. One would argue. What advice do you have for being weird embracing your freedom? Just find your authentic self. He everybody there's nobody like you. It's almost cliche to say but You have your voice your point of view and nobody else has that. Sometimes it's it's it's difficult to find what that poison point of view is but when you do you should You should show. It is as long as you're being kind to people. Be as weird as you want. Have you ever seen any sort of backlash like have you come across people that just kind of rubbed the wrong? Way by a weirdness. Now I don't think because of the weirdness My guess is you know those people just turn it off. But we've had we've had some interesting reviews when one guy on I tune said he hated our podcast because he hates happy podcasters. What that any sounds like a a wonderful person. Wow Okay you felt. Inspired to write that. Yeah I just I hate when people get happy new growth. Yeah Yeah disgusting when you guys. You guys have said if we're going to think of the collective box of oddities is a giant box for all the odd stories that you've shared if you had to pick one. That was your favorite first thing that comes to mind. Don't don't think about a lot. Which one is it? All right mind would be the Cheddar man story which is not as quite as bazaars the titles but in Cheddar France They found some neanderthal bones in a cave outside of a village and they were well enough preserved that they were able to sequence the DNA from these twelve thousand year old bones and they thought. Let's this would be interesting. Let's do a DNA test random DNA tests to see if any ancestors from this. Neanderthal are still existing in the form of of a modern day person and so they history classes. All over. France had the students submit DNA test and one history professor. Did it himself? And it came back a positive hit that he was a direct descendant of this neanderthal.

"They've amassed millions of downloads perform in front of live audiences and have even been tweeted out by Jimmy Kimmel today. They talk about some of their favorite stories. What they've learned from building the box of oddities and how they are a shining example of the success. That can come when you. Embrace your weirdness or to stand out. Whatever you're doing so let's open the wild box of oddities. Enjoy the show already. We are here with two of the creative and odd and freakish use that as a compliment. Podcasters you'll ever hear from cat and JETHRO Gilligan. Talk from the famous. The box of oddities. Podcasts how are you guys doing today? Great Mack how are you? I'm doing fantastic as well. I I do have to share that when we were chatting a little bit beforehand without being prompted you guys brought up a story about raccoon penises. So thank you. You're welcome to try to work into conversation as much as we can I imagine. Yeah the probably bodes really well with everyone so this is really neat. I discovered you guys some point in the last year and I'm always interested in things that are unique or weird or odd in so when I heard about your podcast I was just my face. Lit Up might box of raccoon. Penises was erected the I've just was so excited to listen to and I'm totally hooked to your show so really appreciate what you guys do. Thank you yeah of course. So we're GONNA get into how you guys have built in grown. The box of oddities. I think this is a big that can apply whether your podcast or not. There's just something to the aspect of being odd being different and standing out in. How well that can work from a business and branding standpoint as well. So we'll get to that before we dive into that. I want you guys to look inward not literally but once you guys to think about this concept of oddities and one was the first time that you had a sort of odd experience or not. You had a passion for this area. Oh Gosh I think as as one grows and becomes more comfortable with oneself I think that the things that make us different are the things that we really start to appreciate about ourselves and the things that we appreciate and other people and I know when I was young the fact that I had odd interests or the fact that my mom was insane or the fact that you know. They're the fact that we once had ducks living in our bathtub. it those things were embarrassing or Weird and I didn't WanNa talk about them but as I got older I was like okay. This is this is what I can make. Stories out of. This is how I can share myself with people and so as I got older. It was something that I found that I appreciated about others and I found that they appreciated that. I could provide for them so I guess it's always been there But it's only been since I've been An older person elderly. You might say that I might not that I really started to really appreciate it. Not just about myself but about others. I think when you're younger US spend a lotta time just trying to fit in. You don't want to stand out you don't Wanna be different but As you get older you start to appreciate those who who are different Similar experience for me. My mom was really good at doing weird stuff and I didn't understand it when I was younger but looking back it now. I recognize what she was doing which was creating memories and She would do strange things like when lunch was ready when I was like maybe four or five years old instead of calling me up to the second floor apartment. For for lunch she would put it in a shoebox in lower it down over the side of the House with a rope and I thought that was just the coolest thing ever and I thought. Wow my mom's really really creative off and then I found out later. She just didn't like to watch me. Oh Okay Yeah I wanNA push any buttons there. But that's what I was thinking as well with the shoebox de was at a different brand of shoe for a different type of sandwich there Now she was a thom mcan man so everything came and Tomkins shoe boxes. Okay so you guys. Clearly between the DACHSHUND. The shoes have some interesting memories and stories from your childhood. When was the moment that you thought as opposed to just thinking of these weird or bizarre experiences as memories or something to talk about with your friends that you could actually take this in in us a platform in in share stories this way to a larger audience? That people have come to really really love. I think one I can think of one specific afternoon. It was a a summer summer afternoon. We were lounging about our luxurious above ground. Inflatable Pool and trying to think as that. The Braggart. Okay we're high-class anyway. We're trying to think of ways. Wouldn't it be great if we could cause we love to travel It would be great if we could travel and have a vocation that would allow us to to continue to work while we traveled in so we started trying to identify ways to do that in podcasting came up. Cat had been listening a lot to My favorite murder and really liked what what they were doing. And we went to see one of their live shows and we were inspired by that we thought. Well Okay podcasting. How can we create something unique? Something that's our own authentic voice and so we just started thinking about things that we normally talk about and we normally talk about. Bizarre and odd things will come home one of us will say hey did you hear about Xyz. Now I didn't you know and we'll end up discussing it and so we took that and That was how we built a framework for for the box of oddities. Wow so it first of all. Stay away from cat. We would just due to all the murder interest. But yeah there's a clear passion there you guys Saudi And took it your own I'm fascinated about this because you guys obviously are deepen the podcast world. Now you're deep in the radio world. I almost said you know there used to be this thing called radio radio. Radio is still big as well. But can you talk about that for a little bit? How would you characterize the biggest difference in being focused on podcasts versus radio? Oh Gosh yeah well Yeah we both worked in radio for some time. I I don't anymore but I did and there. There are obvious simulate similarities and there are things that are incredibly different and then there are those things that you find along the way that are different. That you didn't realize would be different which I found pretty interesting. Obviously radio has an immediacy. There's a free There's a background miss to it with podcasting. You have to choose to listen and I think because of that he become invested in. Because you can listen to it whenever you want there is a availability and I don't know a bond that you create like this is yours and you've chosen it. It lives on your phone or wherever and and it's something that you've pit. Yeah that's exactly right. We've talked a lot about this The two of US have the difference between say a morning. Radio show versus Listening to a podcast and she hit the nail right on the head. There is a a real investment. It seems if somebody finds you and they they like what you're doing then you in their mind kind of belong to them. It's something special that they have. And so there is a A bonding that I've never seen I've I've done a lot of morning. Radio shows and they talk about getting the listeners. Involved being an important element of it I in. It's great when you can do that with podcasting dare already involved. Because they've downloaded you and they're invested in there they want to like you. They don't WanNa feel like they've wasted their time. So you have a little bit more of an advantage. I think and just the level of participation is so much higher we. We can't keep up with the emails in the messages. We do the best. We can But it just overrun with them in in were were grateful for that. Yeah off sorry for sending you like fourteen emails over the past couple of weeks. But that's all right took like two weeks to get back to you know. No no problem just assumed you're at a raccoon peanut convention anyway. That was last month Max. Let's.

"And this is where your stupid little Vignette didn't have the additional information. Is this new information. Yeah because my stupid little vignette ended with the explanation. It was a hailstorm. Yeah and did it did it did it did it. Did we do update yeah. That's why I did this topic. Not because I forgot so in August of I guess it's now last year August. Twenty nineteen an international team of more than two dozen archaeologist geneticists and other specialists dated and analyze the DNA from the bones of about thirty seven individuals found at ripken's and they were able to figure out a lot about these people based on what they were digging out of their bones and stuff and the team determined that the majority of the deceased. I did indeed die about a thousand or so years ago but not simultaneously and a few died much more recently like in the early eighteen hundreds strain with the same forensic marks. I don't now just wondering if they had the same kind of head wounds and it's difficult because like I said none of the skeletons were found intact so I mean if they were only taking DNA from skulls and they would be able to match up skull all wounds to skull results essentially. We're talking about a big pile of bombs giant pile of bones anywhere from two hundred eight hundred depending on the source. I that you're reading more interesting. Is that the skeletons. Genetic makeup is more typical of Mediterranean heritage than South Asian. And and it's interesting because it was thought that this was already figured out and because of how difficult researching this lake is because It's I'm not a prime spot for pulling up bones in doing research on these bones. It's not like it's been undisturbed because it's been frozen IOS and multi and frozen and melty. Everything's been moved about and there's been avalanches and there's moving water and it's been one hundred years or so. Yeah so it's not. It's not prime crime. It's what they call problematic and extremely disturbed. Interestingly enough also notes that you will find on my report cards. It's as a child so it's thought that over the years mountaineers have seen bones moved and removed bones Didn't report anything right. Maybe because they were just finding one or two at a time and they're like Oh hey neat bone and rubicon is not within a cultural context. So it's not like it's a religious site where like you had suggested. Maybe there was some sort of sacrificial thing going on or a battlefield battlefield it makes it Kinda rough and also proves how much information that you can gather with very little substance Kathleen Morrison. Who is the chair of the Anthropology Department at the University of Pennsylvania also cautioned against danced assuming that we understand too much about this site because radiocarbon dating does get less and less accurate the closer the specimens get to present day so Them finding Skeletons that they think came from the early eighteen hundreds might not be perfectly accurate because of the built up carbon in our atmosphere because of fossil fuels and the industrial age. And oh I don't know okay. She also says that the fact that The heritage of the people whose bones that they are uncovering might be like Mediterranean. Or something she said. It doesn't matter. She said she she that to her is the smallest of the mysteries because how they ended up in the lake is is a mystery all on its own let alone how how people from the Mediterranean came to end up in this league. It doesn't matter. She said if if you end up dead in the lake who cares where you came from. You're you're just dead in a lake. There are those that have suggested that it's possible because of the location of the lake that a lot of people just died around the lake because of where it is geographically that it's easy to get kind of stuck and eventually your bones are GonNa make your way into the lake because the lakes the bottom of the valley but it's really hard to buy that that many bones could have just made their way into the lane dude. The eight hundred potential victims right probably unlikely Morrison said I suspect that local people put them in the lake. When you see a lot of human skeletons usually it's a graveyard? Analysis published in the journal Nature Communications. The research team drilled into the long bones like thigh-bones and upper arm bones and extracted bone DNA from those bones. They examined thirty eight skeletons and twenty-three head ancestry related to people from present day India while fourteen were more closely related to the eastern Mediterranean islands of Crete in Greece of those thirty eight skeletons found that the skeletons belong to three genetically distinct groups that died in at least two waves about a thousand years apart. So that's where this new information creates even warmer story because that don't make no sense. So what's what's this. Tell us. We don't know come on. I know I thought we had this all figured out. What the hailstorm thing and now you come Boston in this new information Asia and just say no no we? Just don't know Claire. So radiocarbon dating revealed that the Group of twenty three died between the seventh and tenth centuries during during several events while the other fifteen died in the seventeenth and twentieth centuries likely in a single event. Now the the earliest of the information that I have came from Atlas Obscure Era which I love because it helps you find neat things all in the same area. So if you're you're like hey I want to go to lake. which don't because it's like a three or four day hike and you're just gonNa see a lake anyway bones terrible for waterskiing but have view If you wanted to check that out then it will also tell you neat things. With stories nearby there I recommend applets atlas obscure but they didn't have have the newer information that came from the Atlantic Dot Com and business insider had a really interesting. I know we expand guys We can start talking about Skeleton leaks okay. Stocks Aren't doing it anymore. So yeah big. Thanks to those sources. Where AH I've found that information including all that extra stuff that you didn't have that time you talked about this? Basically here's the update now. We don't I know anything you're welcome that thing in the middle and now another installment of hilarious Amazon reviews. I love them number five.
