"Have to say that I'm sitting here with an old friend. It's hard to believe how long it's been. I'm sitting here with James Howard kunstler, who lets me call him Jimbo. Jimbo or Jim, you and I have not been in the same room since probably Christmas 91. Well, we veered into very different kind of intellectual trenches. And digging ourselves deeper into them. So we can't see over the top. But it's still crazy to me because I mean, you've been on the program before by a Skype or whatever. But I met you when I was at yaddo in 1986. Yeah, originally, with Alan shoes, I think Alan, we were watching the 1986 World Series at my house. That's right. A tragic death series. That's exactly right. It wasn't tragic for mets fans. Right, not for them. But I was born in Queens a mile from Shea stadium. So it was not tragic for me. But the point is, that was 1986. I was 23. And I was at yaddo, which was a huge deal for me because obviously I want to be a literary writer and I got to go to yaddle where Cheever was so it meant so much to me. But I met this guy named Alan chews. And Alan says, now, how do you describe him? Alan Woods? Well, he was a big kind of bear of a guy. He was a book critic and a professor. And he had an NPR bookshelf. And he was a sweet fellow. Oh, yeah, very sweet. And he was very kind to me because he said, hey, you want to come with me? I know somebody who lives near here a writer named Jim kunstler. And so he drags me along the 23 year old version of me along with him to meet you. And I instantly loved you and started reading your books. That's totally true. I got a funny auto story for you though. I never went to the place as a guest because there was no point to it. I lived in Saratoga Springs where the place was. And I had no problem working at home. So there was no point in me moving a mile and a half down the road to an arts colony. But I did fill in for a friend of mine as the chef during the winter season when she went on vacation. And they had a much reduced number of that's when I was there. I was expecting to go to the fall. I was expecting to go to the big House, but they said, no, no, no, we're just doing, this is the winter season. So there was only about, I don't know, 18 people or 16 people, at the time, and so you actually cooked for those artists. Yeah, and we can get kind of dismal there at that time of year, especially if you have a bad crew of artists. Cranky bunch of antisocial people. So the some of the writers used to come in late in the afternoon when the sun was going down in November, December. To talk to me. And I got a note in my employee box that said, don't consort with the guests. You're the riff raff. Keep away. But the ironic thing was, I had published more books at that time than most of the people who were coming in to talk.

"We're in a journey together. We're doing this together. We're all playing our part. As I said, do what you can, we've got a lot of exciting programming coming up, stick around for Jim kunstler and don't forget, please go to metaxas talk dot com because we need your help. Thank you. See how the sun shines brightly on the streets where once must be in case you haven't been paying attention. The Biden administration has caused a financial crisis and they have no clue how to fix it. Oil prices have skyrocketed and when oil prices go up, the cost of transportation and shipping spikes leaving the prices of goods to rise. And when we're already seeing record inflation that's the last thing we need. Our economy is in trouble and you need to take steps to protect yourself. If all your money is tied up in stocks, bonds and traditional markets, you are vulnerable. Gold is one of the best ways to protect your retirement. No matter what happens, you own your gold. It is real. It is physical. It's always been valuable since the dawn of time. Legacy precious metals is the company I trust for investing in gold. They can help you roll your retirement account into a gold backed IRA where you still own the physical gold.

"No, no. First of all, that's not true. God allows difficult things to happen. Often to wake us up to bless us, to help us, to get on the right track if we've been on the wrong track. Now, part of that, I've got a lot to share here. My guest in the first hour today and in most of the second hour today is a very old friend. It's amazing how many years it's been. Jim kunstler. Jim, he goes officially by James Howard kunstler. Somebody I met in 1986, brilliant writer, brilliant thinker, and out of the box thinker. I think a Democrat for much of his life or certainly no kind of conservative Christian or anything. But during crazy times, there's some heroic people who are real free thinkers who think for themselves. And they begin to see things and to say things. And Jim kunstler is one of those folks. So this is kind of a rambling conversation that I have with him. But what's amazing to me is people that I would have differed with politically or theologically years ago or even in some ways now, they are still seeing something that the mainstream media refuses to talk about. The evil of this vaccine pushing these vaccines, the evil of so many of these narratives, the lie of this election, how we're told not to talk about this, to get over it, to shut up, your conspiracy theorists, you're an insurrectionist. So Jim kunstler is an amazing guy. Now I just want to say too that he is, I can't say this with him on the air. So I'll say it now before he comes on the year. He's really brilliant. His writing is not just brilliant and forward thinking. I'm not saying I agree with everything he says, but most of what he says, but he's very entertaining. He's very entertaining after we did this interview last week. Susanne and I went to hear him on the upper east side, not too far from where we live. And he just gave the most amazing talk. So he's just somebody that I want you to be familiar with. There are a lot of these folks out there that maybe I don't agree with them on everything, but they're brave and they're they have good souls. And Jim kunstler is one of those. So I'm excited to introduce him. He's been on the program before, but not in the studio. So this is his my conversation with him in the studio from last week. Now Alvin, we've got a couple of other crazy things. I have a very funny letter to share. I guess I will save that for the end of this segment. But from a 15 year old who emailed me, I want to read that letter in a minute. Before that, let me remind you, August, third that's today, August 4th tomorrow, August 5th, we are and also August 8th, we're taping the late night talk show with Eric man taxes at the TBN studios. If you can get here, which is to say, by 4 p.m. ish, any of these nights, the third, the fourth, the 5th, and the 8th..

"That makes no sense. Oh, gosh. So, okay, so this week, just to warn everybody, we've got a lot of big guests this week. We did an amazing interview the other day with Greg Laurie and the studio that was fantastic. We're going to air that. In the studio this week, we have the great dick Morris, some of you know, there's nobody like him. He's amazing. Dick Morris. We also have Victor Davis Hanson. Yes. And there's a young up and coming guy, not that bright, but he's got promise. His name is Charlie Kirk. He's become a friend and I can disparage him publicly. Charlie Kirk will be with us this week as well. He's in New York. If I weren't sick, maybe I would see him for dinner or something. But any event, we've got a lot of stuff going on this week. We taped a lot of great stuff the other day that we still have an aired. Jim kunstler, oh my gosh, ladies and gentlemen, wait till you hear my two hours with Jim kunstler. We also talked to doctor what's his first name, Jacobo. Yes. Folks, faith and science stuff. The book is called telos. I'm reading it right now. We're going to air that later this week. We've got a lot to air. I need to go on vacation. So that's all exciting. We're still planning next week to do the tape these pilot episodes of the talk show, which is very exciting. And we're going to send that detailed information out. I think tomorrow finally we'll have it all nailed down, but it's August 3rd or fourth, 5th and 8th. And we've got a lot of name guests. We can't share it officially, but we've got some name guests, exciting stuff. And. It's still July. Yes. Why? Folks, July, is the month new traumatic dot com said that just for the month of July, everything is 30% off if you use the code Eric. 30% off new traumatic dot com. I'm taking even more of their stuff now that I'm sick. New traumatic dot com, 30% off, check it out. And then Mike lyndell wants us to tell people about my store dot com. Now we've talked about my store dot com. Most of my books are there. The bahnhof for posters are there. If you need some inspiration, get one of those for posters. They're visually gorgeous. And what they say, they're beautiful. But that's all of my store dot com. But. There is now coffee at my store dot com. Ladies and gentlemen, do you understand Albert and I have worked this out? We've worked it out the logic is that Mike lindell says, listen, I'm going to invent the greatest pillows, the greatest sheets. It's going to make America sleep. Very successfully, very successfully. And it's going to become such a thing that I'm going to need to invent next level coffee to wake them up because we're going to just lose the nation to sleep. Because sleep is good, but when you do such a good job inventing pillows and things, maybe it's too good of a job. So Mike said, look, to be fair, I'm going to invent some coffee. So you can get my coffee at my store dot com. Again, you want to use the coded Eric. We keep threatening to go down the list to talk about the product to my store dot com. I mean, pretty much anything you want is now there. My store dot com has just innumerable products of every kind. By the way, it is an oriole bird feeder. There's an oriole bird feeder, make a note of it. There's fire starter. I've actually used the fire starter in the past, but everything like fishing equipment like sports equipment, you just, everything is there, but we want to highlight the coffee. They have wind proof zippo lighters. Do you understand windproof? Wind proof. Zippo lighters. Try to think about that folks. No matter how windy it is, those zippo lighters. And it's camping season. So you need a windproof zippo lighter. Yes, that's what I keep trying to tell everybody, but they just won't listen. But there's all kinds of stuff. There's fishing equipment there. There's clothes. There's whatever. You know what? I was just thinking, we really need to do a commercial for the my coffee, where it's from one flew over the cuckoo's nest, where he's saying, it's my coffee Nurse Ratched. My coffee. My coffee. My coffee. Well, when you go there, you'll see my coffee, you'll see so many other products. I think my favorite one, when you go to my store dot com, I don't know if they have it anymore. But it was chairman of the bird. And it was like a poultry seasoning. I think that was my favorite chairman of the bird poultry. But they've just got everything. I mean, it's just, you know, I'm not going to, we don't have time, but I'm just telling you, go to my store dot com and check it out. It's a whole new thing. They've just got tons of stuff there. Again, my books, the video all that stuff. Before we go to our friend John's mirac, we should mention Salem now dot com is carrying the Obama, the Michelle Obama film. Yes. And a number of other films. And the clarence Thomas film has been canceled. We just heard by Amazon Prime that tells you everything you need to know. It's one of the finest films I've ever seen. It is a brilliant, brilliant documentary made by Michael pack. We've had him on the program. It is as fair, it's going to air it on PBS. I mean, it is just even handed, beautiful documentary about the great clarence Thomas. So please go to Salem now dot com and watch it there. Don't reward Amazon by going well, they've canceled it. So I think we need to we need to shift our affinities folks, how we spend money. This is not right that we're living through these times, but you have to help. You have to do your part. You have to shop in places that share a values, places like my store dot com, my pillow dot com, new traumatic dot com, Salem, now dot com. Because they share our values. It's not a small thing. So please check those places out. Don't forget to use the code, Eric. And when we come back, the great, the amazing Johns Miranda. If I could fly like birds on high and straight to our arms I'd go see. It's far in case you haven't been paying attention..

"To my friend Jim kunstler, which I think will air that Monday, maybe Tuesday. Jim kunstler, I don't know how you describe a guy like him. I'll try tomorrow, but it's always difficult to describe somebody because he's so he's done so many different kinds of things. But I just want to introduce my audience to him. He's been on the program, but never in the studio. Yeah. But it was just a lot in the day and then Susan and I had to go as most people know if you're listening to the program, we are doing four episodes for tapings of a late night talk show. It's this late night show, we're filming it here. August 3rd, fourth, 5th, and 8th. If you want to come, we are going to be sending you information. Now, it is first come first served. And obviously, people in the New York area, there are people who put together audiences for you when you're doing tapings. And we've got four. So if you want to come as soon as you get this email from us respond because it'll be first come first served. And Friends of mine or Friends of the show, you will get the best seats and whatever, but you got to respond quickly because but the reason yesterday was a tough day was susanne and I went after the show to get me fitted for a suit for the show because, you know, when you're taping a late night show, you need a new suit. You need to do it. And we went to the place, I will, as a favor, I won't mention their name. But we go to the place and when you get to this area, yeah, we don't have stuff on the rack for you to try on. That's all down in Tribeca. And of course, who's answered, well, I just made this point the other day and you said you had it here. And he says, yeah, we moved down a Tribeca for these reasons. It's like it was a huge waste of trip. But that's okay because it's only 4000° outside and impossible to get a cap. So yesterday was just one of those days where you just can't I went to Kmart, it's buy one, get three free. Really? I'm all set. So you're all set. In terms of wardrobe. So it's crazy getting ready for the show it's insane. It's insane. All right, and then last night in Manhattan, Jim kunstler spoke at an event. Oh, yeah. And we went to that. It was fancy. He's amazing. He's just amazing. It was at the metropolitan Republican club up on the upper east side. It was incredible. But the heat in New York right now. I mean, I was just in Vegas where it was literally a 110. It's not as bad as here. Here, the humidity is so thick. It's like being on the planet Venus. You just want to lie down and die. The thickness of it is unbelievable. But by the lord's grace, we'll get through. Okay, so today we have Josh Phillips. We will also have him partially an hour too. We're going to do and ask him a taxis today. Today's the day we do it. And I'm warning you. In our two every week, our two, the first segment is an ask metaxas. And we've got some pretty good questions. Oh yeah. I think the one of the questions asks me if I could live in a Midwestern state, which would be, I think you're going to be surprised at my answer. I think you're going to be surprised at my answer. That's coming up in our two. Today, in the first segment, and then later after we're done with Josh Phillips, the talbots come on. Now, you know ped in south Talbot, they're the people behind relief factor, they sold the company to do all this stuff right now. I had dinner with them when I was in Seattle recently. And when you get together with them in person, in the studio, they have to be professional. But in person, they're just a typical father and son. And it's so funny to see the dynamic because they love each other so much that they tease each other. But what I love is that Pete talbott, who's the dad, he used the phrase. He said, holy mackerel. And his son, Seth, was like, holy, dad, and it was so funny to see the generation gap. Because I love the phrase holy mackerel, but it is kind of like, if you're in your 70s, you might use that or older. But the younger generation doesn't say holy mackerel. But I just, I just had such fun with them. They're such wonderful people and Friends, and I just have to say how much I enjoyed being with them..

"Eric. Welcome back, talking to Jim kunstler, or as you know him, James Howard kunstler. Jim, where do you think we go from here? Because you still have that mischievous grin, you haven't been pummeled into silence, which cheers me up, at least. But where do you think we go from here? Do you think there's going to be any reckoning on Russia gate? Do you think this is going to be any reckoning on Fauci and the vaccines and the new studies that are coming out? What is your sense of where we're going? Yeah, I think that I think that we're going to see a ferocious round of accountability for people and for institutions and companies. And however, I think we're entering a period that will be rather disordered where a lot of the failed institutions are going to be completely broken for a while. And we're going to have to rebuild them. Things like justice and. Simply the whole apparatus of governance, I think we're heading into a time when what's called the trust horizon is going to recede. And we're not going to be able to put our trust in distant things and places and persons. And life is going to get very local. The United States may not remain as united as it has been for the past 150 years. And a lot of the activities that we're used to in daily life are going to get smaller and finer. We're going to rebuild local networks of economic interdependence. Why do you believe that we will rebuild these things? In other words, even though it sounds tough, it sounds hopeful. You know, there are plenty of people that think we will lose. That cultural Marxism will take over that Biden will go on to a first term and we don't have the mojito. We don't have the basic mojo to do that. And the basic mojo is really our energy supply. Our oil supply principally. And we no longer have an oil supply that says reliable or affordable as it needs to be to run the kind of society at the scale that we've been running it. I mean, you don't even think if Trump were to get back, you don't think that we would be energy independent again. You don't think so. No, the whole Shell oil thing is it wasn't a fraud, but it was a kind of a financial stunt. And it's not going to, we're not going to get back to that at the scale that we were doing it before. All these shale oil companies produced a whole lot of oil without making a red scent doing it. And they're not going to be able to continue at the scale that they were operating. So that's kind of a fantasy. We're basically out of luck with oil for the most part. It's going to there will still be oil in our lives, but increasingly it will be increasingly unaffordable and scarce and we'll reach a certain point where the large companies that are needed to get it out of the ground because you have to do it at a certain scale. Are not going to be able to their business model will be broken. And we're going to have to make other arrangements for everyday life. We are not going to enter an alt energy Nirvana of solar and wind. They simply can operate without a platform under them of petroleum and fossil fuels. So that's a fantasy. And all of the other fantasies that we have about energy have yet to be fulfilled. There is no fusion energy. The energy of the future and always will be. And that's funny. That's good. Thanks. Nuclear is a similar story. It needs that platform of fossil fuels to operate at. So we're facing a lot of disorder, energy wise. And that's not going to allow anything giant to continue being giant, whether it's a federal government or a Walmart. Do you have any confidence that the so called deep state will have any kind of reckoning that the bloated bureaucracy that we were talking about earlier that there will be any reckoning there that the FBI is in what's been happening. I think only one of about 11 people in the country who believe that the special special counsel John Durham is actually going to end up prosecuting some significant figures. You believe that we need to happen. Yeah, I tend to believe that. Everybody else now has become so cynical. Not I, I'm with you. No, I'm with you. I'm with you. But I think he's been out there as a kind of a rogue asteroid in our culture for about the last three years. And most people have just assumed that he faded into the outskirts of the solar system, but he's there. And there's no question that he's doing things because he's made court filings. Well, yeah, he's recently made court filings and people have suggested that he made those court filings specifically to let people know he's doing things and we can not sweep him away that he has to remain doing what he's doing. Yeah, I think that he's developing is just my opinion. I think that he's developing a very comprehensive and complicated case that it may not be a RICO case, but it is essentially a form of racketeering. And absolutely. Yeah. You know, groups of people in individuals getting together to produce a certain criminal outcome. And yeah, I think he's going to, I think he's going to send a few people to jail. And I hope that it's a few important people. And it will be one example of finally entering the realm of consequence..

"Hey folks, I've got to tell you a secret about relief factor that the father son owners Pete and Seth Talbot have never made a big deal about, but I think it is a big deal. I really do. They sell the three week quick start pack for just 1995 to anyone struggling from pain like neck shoulder back hip or knee pain, 1995, about a dollar a day, but what they haven't broadcasted much is that every time they sell a three week quick start, they lose money. In fact, they don't even break even until about four to 5 months after. If you keep ordering it, Friends, that's huge. People don't keep ordering relief factor month after month. If it doesn't work. So yes, Pete and Seth are literally on a mission to help as many people as possible deal with their pain. They really do put their money where their mouths are. So if you're in pain from exercise or even just getting older or to the three week quick start for 1995, let's see if we can get you out of pain too. Go to relief factor dot com. Relief factor dot com or call 805 108 three 8 four 805 108 three 8 four relief factor dot com. I use it. It works. Hey gang, we're back talking to Jim kunstler. Jim recently, a friend. I don't know if he's on the same page as I am politically or with regard to vaccines. But was talking about a book called doctor Mary's monkey, which is, it is insane, but it's true. And it's about what happened when the polio vaccine was developed, I had never heard this before, but it sounded so creepily similar to where we are now. I was astonished. Basically, tell me if you've heard this, but I'd never heard this before, but when the polio, I haven't heard the book. When the polio vaccine was developed, doctor Mary's monkey. But when the polio vaccine was developed, they noticed a tremendous spike in soft tissue cancers, and they knew that it had to be related to the fact that everybody and his brother is getting the polio vaccine, but the powers that be in the early 60s said, of course, this information has to be suppressed. We can't talk about the fact that people are dying from cancer because they got the polio vaccine that we demanded everyone get. I mean, so I'd never heard this before. And as I started looking into it, I thought to myself, this is crazy because people would hold up the polio vaccine as an example of a good thing and why you need to get this vaccine because look at that vaccine. I never heard this. I literally heard this, I don't know, maybe it was two or three weeks ago. And I thought, does anybody know about this? I mean, this doesn't strike me as something that's known. Well, you have to consider that our knowledge of DNA back then, you know, I guess the 1950s was we hadn't even discovered DNA at that point. But now, you know, we have these new mRNA vaccines that actually are capable of apparently, according to the latest study out of Sweden, of altering our DNA. And one of the things that is now feared to be happening is that these mRNA vaccines have gone into the cells of the people who got them and thrown a toggle switch that turns off their genetic ability to defeat cells that are growing that are getting to be cancerous in their behavior. Bingo. It doesn't identify the cancer's behavior. And this is one of the things that is apparently developing a developing story that's very shocking. And you know, we have something like 290 Americans who have received these vaccines, not all of them have gotten all three or four of them or whatever number they're up to. But it's hard to imagine what kind of anxiety is now going to drive those people who are wondering about their very internal composition of their genes. And how it's going to affect their health. And not to mention, you know, the blood clotting and other disorders that are turning up. But as you know, The New York Times is not been talking about this for the last year that the rest of us have been talking about it. I mean, this is The New York Times. You would think that maybe they would address the issue in a sense. And you know what? Nobody has really had the opportunity to get somebody like dean bequette. The editor of The New York Times, you know, into a chair and answer some basic questions. How did it happen that you could have ignored these stories? We will want to know the answer to these things, not just from the editor of The New York Times, but not just from Doctor Fauci, but from a lot of officials. There were a lot of people in these bureaucracies in these institutions who have a lot to answer for. Do you think there will be any kind of a reckoning at all? I mean, when you mention this, there's also the Russia gate thing. I mean, the idea that Hillary Clinton may have been behind that whole thing that washed over this country and the news cycles endlessly for years and that there seems to have been no reckoning. We just kind of we just keep going as though that didn't happen. Well, that's a very dangerous thing because what it means is you're living in a society where there are no consequences for anything. You're living in a society where anything goes and nothing matters. And that is the kind of atmosphere that's going to kill a society. So unless we can get back to a sense of consequence, we're going to see a whole lot more bad behavior. Well, I guess there's so many things we're talking about right now. But I mean, it seems to me that the pressure to get these vaccines. I'd never seen anything like it in my life. The idea that living in New York City, I literally could not eat in restaurants, could not go in museums until about a week ago. And I thought to myself, this is crazy. I have become a second class citizen because I'm smart enough to know that I shouldn't get this vaccine that the downside is just much, much greater than the upside. But the cultural pressure, all of the late night shows, mocking people who don't think the way they do. Again, it's psychotic, Eric. It's a symptom of not just individuals, but of a psychotic society. I didn't get I didn't get the vaccine either. And you know, I feel sorry for the people I know who did get it. I'm worried about them, you know? There are lots and lots of people who got it. And we don't know. I mean, I've read enough to know that it's not a good idea. And I know enough people who got through COVID, you know, with flying colors, they acted like it was the Bubonic plague, do anything, do whatever you do. You know, you don't want to get that. But by the way, you know, what you're describing about this kind of conditioning and programming, you know, all the stuff on TV and in the newspapers and the media. This is simply just another manifestation of the coercion that we were talking about earlier. It's just another way of pushing people around. Well, exactly. We used to call it tyranny, and we went to war with king George over it. We'll be right back, talking to James Howard kunstler. Hey folks, if you listen to this program, of course, you've heard me talk at infinitum about my pillow and my friend Mike lindell. Well, Mike is just announced that you will receive one of his books in the book is next level insane. It is called what are the odds from crack addict to CEO. It's his story. You will receive it absolutely free with.

"Okay, so Jim comes to today eugenia. We've got Tim Tebow coming up. Here's the announcement. I've got a lot I want to talk about, but the announcement we're doing a fundraiser with food for the poor. Food for the poor made it tough decision because everybody's so focused on the Ukraine. People have not been as inclined to give. So as you know, three weeks ago, Russia invaded Ukraine, right? Okay, so nearly 3 million Ukrainians have fled the country. And so our friends at food for the poor said this month now while we're doing this campaign, they reached out to strategic partners who have a footprint beyond their typical 17 Caribbean and Latin American countries. So we've been raising money for starving kids in those countries. But as of today, food for the poor has been able to shift everything so that from now till the end of the month, we are able to help people suffering in the Ukraine specifically. So Ed reign, I almost said rainy, Ed rain, who is the CEO and president of food for the poor, gave us a clip, why don't we play that? Theater of operations. So we thought about our partners. Who is it that we have a relationship with? So feed my starving children will quickly came on to the radar. They are an essential part of what we do in our countries. And we understood from them that they have confidence in being able to do the work in the Ukraine because they've been there for the last 8 years. Okay, so obviously food for the poor, whatever money we raise from here going forward. So today, go to metaxas talk dot com, click on the banner, please, folks. But that will also help feed my starving children is the name of it. Food for the poor is linking with them. To help kids, not just in our hemisphere, but in the Ukraine to rush emergency relief. Actually, Andy Carr, who's the vice president of marketing development at feed my starving children, also gave us a clip, why don't we play Andy Carr's clip right now? We are honored to partner with food for the poor. I've had the privilege of being out and around the world in many places that you serve and seeing what mana PAC meals do and obviously we are thrilled to be able to have a partner of the scale and scope of what you do. Okay, so this is exciting because a lot of people have contacted us. They wanted us to help the folks in the Ukraine. So food for the poor from today. This is Monday. We are going to be working with feed my starving children. So when you go to our website, metaxas talk dot com and click on the banner, you will be also helping millions of refugees who are going through this crisis in the Ukraine. We need your help, folks. I've been saying it throughout the month, but we really need your help. The number is 8 four four 8 6 three hope. I hope you'll do something today. Please 8 four four 8 6 three hope again because of the situation that you can has been dramatically down so food for the poor said let's shift if people are interested in helping folks in the Ukraine. And the banner is right up there at the top of the page. So do it today because a lot of times you forget, you say, oh, I'll do it later. Now do it now. I'm a tax is talked dot com is the website, metaxas Doc dot com at the top of the page. And again, if you prefer to call 8 four four 8 6 three hope, 8 four four 8 6 three hope 8 four four 8 6 three hope. We need your help. So I don't know how else to put it other than to say it's a big deal that food for the poor decided to partner in this way, and so we just hope you'll step up. Another announcement, a new traumatic this week only if you use the code Eric. It's 25% off. That's great. They do this periodically. Their stuff is spectacular. I keep saying, I went into a health food store in Connecticut. I was in Connecticut. And I had run out of new traumatic things. So I went to health food store. They carry it there. It's like every great store that has all this kind of stuff. Nutriment X is one of the greatest companies. So I say that, but then I want to say on top of it, 50% of their profits go to helping missions, agencies in the third world. So if you need nutraceuticals, you need melatonin and vitamin C or whatever. And I say to everybody for your health, for your immune health, you should be taking vitamin C, vitamin D, zinc, magnesium, every single day, I do, but you might as well get it from nutrimetics because 50% of the profits go to helping missions. When you went into that store, did they say, hey, you're Eric. We're going to give you 25% off. No, they didn't give me 25% off. So I paid full price, and it burned me up. I thought, why don't I go to my own website or sorry, go to their website, new traumatic dot com and put in the code, Eric, and I would get a whopping 20% off. And as of today, 25% off. So I really blew it. You did. All right, you're human. We want it before we go to our guest, Jim kunstler. I just want to say that I did some gardening this weekend. And I'm really tired. I'm really sore. My body is not used to gardening. Like I work out, I run, I work out with weights, but gardening is a whole different thing. But I'm in Connecticut. And my parents house, let me just say that my father has never been big on landscaping. He just kind of like sticks stuff here and there and it grows. Yeah. And so I decided that on the side of the house where we had all these ferns and stuff, I decided that we need to push the ferns back and plant grass. And it was brutal. It was brutal. You know, I cleaned off the back deck. Now we had a pretty nice weekend here in the northeast. I cleaned off the back deck, and I got bit by a bee. You got bit by a bean. You're not making this up. I'm not kidding. I'm screaming. My wife is like, do I have to take you to the hospital? She's serious, right? Because well, because there are a lot of strange spiders on our back deck. Are the bees that big? Well, are you that small? Well, I know. And I thought, well, what kind of spider do I have like 30 seconds to live? Oh, you actually really thought that you were curious. And it's now it's swelled a little and it's red and it's itchy and it's so I don't know if I have to get rid of the finger in order to live. Wow. What's up? Well, I wanted to end on an up note. I apologize. I'm sorry. Okay, so we're going to go to Jim kunstler. And at the end of the hour today,.

"Well, we've got one big announcement, but before I get to that, I want to say Jim kunstler. I don't want to brag about him when he's on the air with me because I don't want to embarrass him. But he is an amazing writer. His books are brilliantly written and hilarious, even when he's writing about serious stuff. So he wrote a book called the geography of nowhere that is about kind of what happened to America and how highways and 6 lane highways have just kind of taken over everything. But it's so brilliant that it changed the way I see things. And I read it back in gosh, this was in the 90s. So I want to talk to him about that. But he's somebody too that he came from a kind of like a liberal secular democratic point of view. And I think he has migrated more to where I am. So I'm fascinated with that. I don't know if I'm going to get into that. But he's just a big deal. And so I am thrilled that I get to talk to him for both hours today. I just want to introduce this audience to Jim kunstler. And you can go, I can't even say the name of his blog because it's too vulgar. Yeah. Yeah, I'm not kidding. I'm actually not kidding. In that case, I'm not kidding. So I want to say, my guest is Jim kunstler today. And I both ours. And I really do feel he's a phenomenon. You may not agree with him about everything, but he's brilliant. He's a free thinker in the best sentence. He's not afraid to just go where the facts. He's what people call a hidden gem. He's what people call a hidden gem. Or at least. Okay, tomorrow, we have eugenia Constantino that's Greek. Oh my gosh, she is one of my favorite guests, she has written a book. What's the title of the book? About the crucifixion. It is spectacular. Ladies and gentlemen, it's amazing. Don't miss it tomorrow. Okay,.
