"I got ready. During all of those. I i hate not knowing things and i didn't know a single one. My heart was beating. Please don't ask if that's why you know if you go on jeopardy your final jeopardy category two thousand one space. I mean after those questions. I clearly need to watch this movie for sure. So you know going into this. The most intriguingly smallest was absolutely the utah monolith for me. Although after you talked a little bit about it. I have to say the. The one in romania is pretty intriguing to simply because romania emulates. Face it a more mysterious place. You could probably not so this mysterious by nature but this utah thing is really interesting. And i've heard an. I'm actually a little dubious a lot of people think that it's a tribute in some way. An ordinance to two thousand one space odyssey. I have to say. I'm a little dubious that i could say where it could be paying homage to two thousand one space odyssey. But i'll just throw a little geometry at you here. So the monolith in two thousand one. A space odyssey was a black rectangular prison obsidian black as space rectangular prison. The utah monolith was a shiny gleaming. Trying your prison so s myself if this really was attributed to two thousand one space odyssey. Why not just go ahead make a rectangular prism to slide the movie. Why not just go ahead. Make it black right. You know something that. I failed to mention a huge part of the story is that people were trying to figure out how long the monarch had been in utah and people were able to go back and look at google. Whatever it's called rural earth that it had been there been placed september twenty two thousand fifteen in two thousand and sixteen so this thing stood there for a long time before anything anybody gonna say noticed it because somebody might have noticed it before but before it was brought to everybody else's attention. This thing has been standing there strong in earth for four or five years which is just wild employees. Plus you're talking about rugged extreme landscape here some of the most desolate landscape homo facing the planet. Not an easy place to get to not a safe place to get to especially by yourself. I think that there is some credence that you know. If it is people that put this small out there that it was probably at a minimum a crew of people it certainly was a crew of people who removed the monolith. And let me tell you something. I found fascinating the crew that removed the mind with. I don't know how. I just found what they were reported as saying to be really interesting. So let's say one of the man who removed the model was reported to say. This is why you don't leave. Things in the desert excess trash this is why just trash in the desert right and they also sam. What did they say. Leave no trace sound. it's very men in black. This don't you. I know no. I don't think that they are super showy. No they were totally showy. They wanted this attention. They wanted to get famous about who they are and what they do. They posted removing a video to their social media sites. They wanted this attention. I don't think it's in black. I think that this event was marketing. Still brian thanks shit. Whoever put it there is much much much more fascinating in mysterious. Because they've taken no credit they don't want credit. They wanted to give some people something to talk about. Of course there is something to be said that if they do take credit they could actually be prosecuted in end up in jail. Well that's illegal to put artwork on right now. There is a sculptor whose the was john. Mccracken in this theory has been brought up. Have you heard this is real name. I probably got it wrong. But that's how it looks to me. Okay mr mcrae. Mccracken i dunno. Forgive me the rest in peace. So his newsy knob has him credit for the sculpture. they have said that it was his. However there's a problem with that and he passed away in two thousand eleven in this place there to them fifteen but his son has since come forward and said that he had a conversation with his dad a long time ago and he said that he wanted to leave mysterious pieces of singular art all around the world so it is possible that he made the monolith and somebody else placed it there in his honor. I don't know you know that does remind me of the book called the message or something like that where they hid these artifacts around the globe. All hidden in national parks. Think or state parks or something like that and every so often somebody finds one of these takes the. It's got like this mysterious stuff inside of it new minute prize. If you heard of this now i'll have to look it up so it was. It was really popular so television about it. And like i say one was apparently just discovered in california very interesting so it makes me wonder you know. Is this some sort of contest that we're just not in on yet. The whole world is on it. I mean that. Wouldn't that. Be great though i just i am so sick of the negativity and to have this leaning shining on eleven to distract us all and give something else to think about is guest really and you know what i actually had a young fan today. Who offered up their own theory about the manolis. Would you like to hear. Cj i would love to hear this is from elissa in chapel hill north carolina. Who was kind enough to purchase some of my being books children's books today a holiday market and she wanted to record her theory about the monoliths. Here's a list of chapel hill. Her i think it might be a distraction round. Getting home in the lakers scavenger hunt for the people that are finding that people are. You're gonna see more fun. You sleep our guest in this sale at like put it on a boat and sail it to somewhere else and maybe it will pop indoor north pole next time. I want to have the mind of a child. I mean that's brilliant pop up in the north pole. Why not. I want this thing to pop up in the north pole on christmas eve and just to make all of our unexplained dreams come true. It is brilliant. How pro britt for christmas town. Would it be if this turns out to be the work of santa claus and sale. That would be amazing and distraction for me. It actually is so. I think that's brilliant answer by this now. What a sweet little girl thank you. That was fun any other theories about these. Cj that.

"Louisa. When i look back over the newspaper dot com archive in in relation to christoph boucle. What i found was a lot of fierce debates mentioned in the articles about him often involving authorities as well as art world people. He wants to create this kind of control. He doesn't need so so tell us about this latest controversy. Why is it such conservancy. It starts off by the venice biennale in two thousand nine hundred nineteen when we will all of us walking through the arsenal and that was a vast rusting boat on the key side. Not in water. That's not an unusual thing to see. It looked kind of weirdly home amongst the other sort of naval paraphernalia around in the snarly but then of course there was no notice nothing to identify it. If diligent you look up in the catalog but unite was very mysterious but of course word of mouth soon came through this was indeed a work and art not a piece of rusting boatlift over by the navy it was balkan nostra it was cooled and it was actually the very boat which had been leaving libya for its louis laden with excess. Don't know how many of the thousands immigrants trying to get it collided with portuguese freighter. Got into trouble and sunk killing everybody. Pretty much on board. I mean it was an absolute atrocity slash disaster. The boat was then taken by the italian navy to sicily where there was an incredible detailed forensic investigation on all of the bodies of the victims many of whom were trapped in the hall of the boat. They'd be impacting. It was it was a trafficking boats. It was a horrific horrific scenario <hes>. There was a forensic detailed investigations to who the identity of these people were many of their families traced and so they learn to the terrible fate of relatives now. I didn't quite know how this happened. But then time passes from two thousand fifteen. Somehow a deal is struck with the sicilian town of augusta where this both ended up in the naval base to bring it to the venice biennale as an exhibit. Christopher cal had signed a contract with the town of augusta that he could borrow the boat for yeah it would be exhibited has been and then he would return it a year later so the boats there everybody feels extremely conflicted about some people said it was a brilliant idea that shows how decadent the art world is how decadent our world is how uncaring we are. It was kind of appalling. I felt the boat was parked right by the cafe. So you start swinging europe roles and your and your cappuccinos. Perhaps not knowing there was in effect the site of mass atrocity a mass grave. Right beside you. So was it makes us think about our place. In the world on carrying thought about crises unfolding very close to us or was it. An exploitative opportunistic attention seeking <hes>. Profile raising artwork by christopher. Koop and as you say he does have form in this respect. He's done other things. He's crushed landed a mosque in venice inside the catholic church for another being all for the icelandic pavilion. Several years ago he also set up community centers on controversial other things in tasmania. We'll probably talk about in a minute. So but this was a big one and yes it's very raw and the debate in the controversy still rages but the latest part of. This debate is a year on from the being ali. The boat is still. There is a dispute between the being early organization and bianco and he's gallery well absolutely yes. Because as i said he signed a deal with the city in town of augusta. Maybe you know. Maybe money exchanged hands. I don't know but anyway but the deal was that the boat would then come back to augusta where apparently it was intended to be the centerpiece for memorial park with the consent of the relatives. Also in all kinds of rumblings around the time in the been on it was stated apparently the families had given their permission for this boats to be used or some families are given their permission. I mean gardeners specific. But that will talk of permission. But now there's the boat the biennale a now say they have been hassling buco since november last year to bring this boat back to honor his agreement to honor the contract with cillian town of august. Gustave saying they want the boat back as well now sources close to buco say that because he never talks to the press which is another thing we can talk about minute <hes>. They say apparently the boat was damaged in transit coming venice so it's going to be impossible until the cradle support is fixed for it to come back again to augusta so buco is now trying to get insurance to pay for this either from the benaroya. Who said no go away or probably problem rudely or indeed from the shipping company. But i mean. I would say that you know only ethics about whether you actually share bin ali or not. I felt squeamish. I think we're dead. People are concerned it starts to get very problematic. Any put all those ethics to one side. You honor the agreement to the families you on the agreement to the place from whence you lent it and if and if the cradle got caught up and pay for it or you make your gary who house involved not show for penny or two to cough up and pay for it you know. I draw lines more lines in the sand. Whatever want feels about artworks raising profile of terrible crises. Apparently there's talk about taking the boat to brussels to show how come the the eu have been ignoring the immigration crisis. I mean lofty motives. But you know this is a place where over thousand people died.

"Get the money collided. Nickel owned business. Come back the dig. Lab makes you knew all the social contacts with stuff like us sheriffs comment on us. Good or bad doesn't matter all any press is good press for us now. We left a message on nancy. Pelosi's voicemail so maybe we'll hear back from her maybe they'll call us back. Your speaker of the house would like to talk to you. I talked to her. Live on the air and you can be live on the air as well. just go to profit radio. Pr ph radio. Click on the be heard section and you can be part of that as well now. Another statue has popped up in romania of all places. I save all places. Where else do you gotta the place that you would wanna a thing. The pop up. No i don't know. I'm just saying that it's weird. That another thing has popped up in a faraway land in a faraway land. Almost the exact same thing now. The one in utah has been taken down already this past week. Now this comes from vice dot com a mysterious monolith update new. Mysterious monolith appears in romania. A new monolith has appeared in many a few feet away from the ancient fortress identical structure from the one in utah. This one looks to be deliberate loop-the-loop scribbled scratch on the entire face and stands about the same height as one in utah. The european monolith is only a few feet away from the ancient. Connie the con- the scene d. a. c. i a. n. fortressed once stood this shiny silver still quite reminiscent of the john mccracken sculpture Was killed while actually died in two thousand eleven. He was a skilled minimal artists and according to his son his father talked about having to create art meant for remote places before his death. So the theory is inconclusive. Weather david swingers gallery has put these out there and to to dedicate it to mccracken's work for decades but actually this one they figured out. It's been in the ground. The one in romania has been on the ground for about six. I'm sorry five years and the reason being is this hacker. I think is called his name. I'm not kidding here. His name is called bear fucker. I'm sorry he's already user and actually what he did was he was going through. Google image in google image and going back and forth and figuring out who is following the the helicopter trail matching it up the path of the helicopter and matching up with the terrain and once the helicopter disappeared off the map that means it went below radar landed and he was looking for. You know where the the most flattest ground was and he came across this one in romania. So i don't know what's happened here in two thousand fifteen. He says it wasn't there and then all of a sudden in two thousand sixteen he could see shadows around the area now where it was placed. There was a whole lot of vegetation stuff which has now been cleared. South wish now reveals the one monolith in romania. Take away anything from twenty twenty. Hopefully the monolith the mysterious of the model will be one of it. Because it's weird. Maybe it's just that beacon of hope it's at of there's something else out there more than us. There's something a little bit more stronger. More intel hopefully more intelligent than us. Jesus christ whereas don't wear masks you don't want to. I don't care no someone that's getting around the mask. Is this little place in the united kingdom so here north carolina. They've actually activated then to suss for forceps back during the thanksgiving thing. Hopefully fingers crossed. We all come out of this a lot better. You know they. They said this was going to be the super explosion. So they said you know even when you're in the house with people that you know to wear masks now and nottingham england. They're actually a little bit stricter over there as far as wearing masks and close physically the reclosing down establishments so anyone in the hospitality venues remained. Close there now in category three other than delivery and takeaway now the owner of the four hundred rabbits bar has found a way around that they have now christened themselves. The church of the four hundred rabbits and aztec theme bar with an exquisite tequila menu and pending application to the nottingham registry. General has become a place of worship. The reason this five year old establishment is now hoping to mix spirituality with spirits. They have fought that they've spotted a loophole in the england's covert one thousand nine. Which means that. If you're a place of worship and you're all from the same household or bubble you can enter the premises. So what they've done is they've posted an application to certify the place as a religious worship the places of worship restriction act of eighteen fifty five bars now seeking congregants through its website welcoming all the bunny believers welcoming all bunny believers is free and you get a certificate while it's thirteen dollars ten british pounds. Which means you can be an ordain as a reverend to the righteous rabbits with a complimentary t shirt as your official robe. So it's all tongue chiefs what they're doing is they found a loophole in the uk's laws as far as religious combines and everything can be open still so guess what. We are now who here now. And there's loopholes of about selling alcohol and inviting people in you are now all religious people. And you're you're free to set sail and worship at the four hundred ravitz pub in nottingham england and if you know we have listeners over in the uk if you have any of the shirts say you know the robe and the free t. Shirt and stuff. Hey send it to us and what you do that is email me at deakin. Profit radio dot com. I'd like to see some of the shirts. I know we got some listeners over there in the uk that'd be kind of cool to see anything from the four hundred rabbits and semi pint. Do something people waiting a long time to get out of the house and something we have been waiting for here in the united states is now coming back. We haven't done this for seen this since.

So after that discovery and subsequent disappearance of that monolith in the middle of the utah desert earlier this month. Well we told you yesterday that a similar object was found in romania. it's also vanished. A structure that appears to be almost identical to the one in the utah desert that while disappeared. was found in romania on november. Twenty six this according to the mirror but well it didn't stay very long. I guess it had places to go and things to do. People see this. According to a report yesterday by reuters after it was discovered again on november twenty. Six that romanian monolith disappeared just four days. Later it was about ten feet. Tall disappeared overnight as quietly as it was erected just last week this according to journalists Robert is sub of the ziara piatra. Local newspaper of him saying that correctly to my romanian friends no disrespect intended. Certainly journalists went on to say an unidentified person apparently a bad local welder.

Now you remember when utah's department of public safety i found. Well what many likened to Two thousand one. A space odyssey esque monolith. People wondered whether it had been the work of aliens. Course we always go to that right. Must be the work of aliens or perhaps it was artwork by sculptor.

Officials from the bureau of land management and utah said. Yeah that monolith is gone. But they don't know who took it they certainly didn't remove it at least that's their story and they're sticking to it.

"That's exactly correct. That's exactly correct. Now also want to say, Murph this This Utah monolith bears a striking resemblance to the model.

I don't think I'll be tweeting about it. Hey, Has anybody checked the southeastern Utah desert Doctor? I got some cutting edge aren't out there. You got a really cool artist activist. They just do it. And then they guy dies. It doesn't say a word. Well, I gotta I gotta spin like a half baked riff here and say Like, what? What's the point? What's what's the point of getting in the art game? If you can't reap the benefits, which includes, you know, hanging out with Mick Jagger in Paris dating supersede, That's the deal. That's when you know you're a true artist. If you don't need won't get guys this Jagger don't forget him, remember, but I'm doing it. I'm paying for Jagger, though. That's that's why you're not a true artist. Right? That's true. So you're in it for the wrong reason. I am, But I figured like Banksy dude, thanks. He wouldn't be hanging off of buildings and painting bridges and stuff. If he wasn't setting, setting around with way even know banks. His name means that he's also to Main Street. You guys remember in in Friday night Lights, the TV show when Matt Saracen kind of quit his football career, and he decides he's gonna go work at that. That guy's house like he's a really obscure artist. He's like doing scrap metal. God, yes, that's I don't know what this is like. Remember like Masterson goes to the interview, and the guy's like He's like smoking a cigarette. He doesn't have a shirt on and it's all wrapped around his head. Yeah, kind of like beauty and an entourage and serious and tells him like I wanna be an artist, because I mean, you wanna be an artist. You just are an artist. You don't do it for the glory. All right. Great call. Just get all that scrap. So in other words, you do. Did you put it on a lift with Saracens messages? Like mentor? Yeah. Ready for this. Can I get a braking again?

A mayor won't require cove masks until the holy spirit says so in native can very high on hallucinogenic plants and painted rock art. A new study finds. These are the weird stories for the wednesday of this week. The day before thanksgiving. Yes this is weird af news that you're listening to the only podcast that's daily. That's weird and is hosted by comedian. I'm happy to say i'm jones e. your host. Let's do it. A mysterious metal. Monolith was found in the desert of utah. theories abound. Ooh what could is metal. Be a giant metal. Mystery slab has captured the attention of millions as people speculate over how such a structure came to be in a very remote part of southern utah. The object was first spotted by a helicopter pilot and wildlife officers who were flying above the rugged area to conduct an annual count of bighorn sheep for the state of utah. Will they do the bighorn. Sheep count just imagine is officers flying around in a helicopter. Okay this one over there. Two three four never mind. That's a bush. Five six is that three or just two. I can't tell sandy. Can you take a look. There is that three or just two. I can't tell man these bighorn sheep. They look so tiny from up above. We need a better method than this. What is that slab. That was my that was acting out how they discovered the slab as they counted the bighorn sheep from a helicopter above. You have to have majored in accounting to get that bighorn sheep counting job anyways. This drew immediate comparisons. Of course this metal monolith to what can you imagine. I mean if you know your movies if you know specifically your seventies movies you know the deal. Although i think it was made in sixty nine two thousand one space odyssey by stanley kubrick One of my favorite directors they come they come upon the monolith that coming up coming and i can't get this out. They come upon the monolith on two occasions in that film. The astronauts find the model with on the moon and the monkeys find the monolith on earth If you guys and So there's a lot of comparisons of this metal monolith to the one in the film Let's get into the article. See if there's any parallels this could just be a prank. I mean we don't know that the helicopter pilots name is brett. Bread had the opportunity to see the big metal slab up close and guess it was probably the work of an artist. Yeah yeah sure. I'm sure it was an artist. Artists shit like this. Here's my impression of brett. I'm assuming it's some kind of like new wave artist or something or you know somebody. That was a big two thousand one space odyssey fan. You know you know. i don't know i just. I just fly helicopters bro. What do i know about monoliths man. I'm i don't even let me count the sheep man. I'm just. I don't have those kinds of skill. Just fly the chopper bro. That's what i'd do. I don't know nothing about sheep. This work was compared to those of many minimalist sculptures including artist. John mccracken who died in two thousand one. Oh poor john mccracken. That last name is just terrible. Also david's werner. Well this is not a work by the late. American artist john mccracken. We suspect it is a work by fellow artists. Paying homage to crack in mccracken. What did this mccracken guy. Put weird shit in the desert all over the world. Well one thing is known about this structure. It is illegal. Of course everything's legal. It is illegal to install structures of art on federally managed public lands according to the utah's department of public safety. This is true no matter what planet you're from it's illegal to install the art on the public lands. The agency said it does not plan to reveal the exact location of this monolith. Yeah they say it is in a very remote area and if individuals were to attempt to visit this area there a significant possibility they make become. I can't even get this out man. There's a significant possibility. They may become stranded and require a rescue. Well it's in the middle of nowhere then this whoever put this there didn't expect it to be seen by too many people for sure for sure. Well i'll tell you right now. I love this metal monolith that we just can't seem to wrap our heads around. I love mystery. I love the unknown. It just makes the world's a weirder place and in my opinion a weirdo world is a better world. A mayor won't require covid masks until the holy spirit says so. The mayor of tennessee county on alabama's northern border says covid nineteen cases are increasing their. But he won't order residents and visitors to wear masks until the holy spirit moves him to do so. I hope the holy spirit gives you a cough brother that way you're moved to save your community. It isn't that he's anti-science it says here. He's an auburn university. Trained veterinarian understand understand science. I don't think so. I don't think he understands science.

I have so much as somebody who doesn't believe aliens have visited Planet Earth, at least in our lifetime. They're not probing people a Nelly much to Colleen's disappointment. Um you don't need aliens for that colleague. I know I was going to say it like Right. Okay. Sorry. I know people don't walk down that road. But I mean, I lived on that street so I don't know where you want me to go to get to Anyway. Um as somebody who doesn't believe aliens have joined us on Planet Earth in the last few years. I do still Like I'm honestly fascinated by this story. There is clearly an explanation. It was clearly put there by something or someone. Probably someone, I get it. But the fact that nobody knows and nobody has figured it out up to this point. It's a story that I find fascinating, much like the jet pack man, the mystery jetpack man that's flying around Los Angeles and has evaded detection or capture up to this point like there's a guy who's been Presumably a guy because I feel like a woman would know better than to like fly in jumbo jet air space with a jet pack. So Go ahead. No, I was just gonna say like that. That's a thing. That's a real story. That's not a made up story. This is a real story. It's just that it's a mystery. We don't know. We don't know. How this thing got here in the fact that actual people don't know how this thing got here yet is kind of fascinating to me are some theories and one of them is that this is the work of an artist. The late artists and I'm not joking. His real name was John McCracken. And he died in 2011. This, um Actually, I wonder if that's the Southern guy. Hold on. I think it's just space junk. Like I think it's just like it fell from the sky real hard and got lodged it straight up straight up in the air. Sure, without any impact crater, maybe. I mean, I don't know. It's been there for a minute. So you know, stuff maybe might want to take a physics class Feel like aliens are beyond physics. So you're on alien town? No, not totally. I just feel like it had to have come from space. Okay. I like how you're like, I'm gonna poop on this, but it's aliens, which is what we started out saying. Yeah, I don't know. I just I don't know. I'm curious. I want to know more. I want Tol. Yeah, That's why we brought the story because it's a mystery man. It is so hard to understand. Just just bathing the mystery. I am okay. What? You were looking up an artist? Yeah, This is not There's Ah, wonderful story, actually, about a guy who, um Who had a treasurer. Before he died. And then a bunch of people went looking for the treasure. And then, like people died in the hunt for this treasure, and it was actually in Yosemite, not Yosemite, Yellowstone. And I listened, or I actually read this big long article about it. Anyway, I wonder if maybe it's some guy who, you know, hatched or lady who hatched a plot to, you know, grabbed the world's attention. Yeah, I just want to know now what the plan is. What are we doing with this tells us what this thing is. When we come back on the Colin and Bradley show, we'll have the answer for you. I'm just finished..

An Unexplained Monolith in the Utah Desert

"A helicopter crew from. Utah's department of public safety. Were on a routine assignment coming bighorn sheep in the southeastern part of the state when they spotted a mysterious silver monolith in the middle of the red rock standing about ten to twelve feet tall. Perfect shiny triangular prism the crew. Says it definitely looks like it was planted there on purpose not dropped from above on accident. Short of some nasa experiment pilot brit. Hutchings thinks it was probably put there by an artist maybe fan of two thousand one. A space odyssey. It does bear a striking resemblance to the black monolith that appears in that film but the department of public safety reminded people in a statement that installations on public land require permits quote. No matter what planet. You're from end quotes. They've also said they won't disclose exactly where they found it. Because it's in a location that could be dangerous to navigate for amateur hikers. And they don't want to cause curious visitors to injure themselves or become stranded. But they did post a bunch of photos and videos taken by the crew with the monolith including one where one of the guys standing on top of another one's shoulders to get a measurement of the monolith against lincoln. The show notes. So you can see for yourself with this mysterious structure. Looks like i'm kind of curious how long it's been there you know. How often do people fly over this part of red rock country looking for sheep or otherwise paying close enough attention to have noticed it. The guardian pointed out that some people have noticed. The monolith bears striking resemblance to the works of artists. John mccracken who did live in nearby new mexico but died. Eight years ago he's galleries. David's werner did not return request for comment from the guardian. Is it possible. The monolith has been there for over eight years just waiting to be discovered or was it planted by someone else or some thing else. I guess we'll just have to wait and see.

"We are back on townhall Ohio Senator Sherrod Brown. Adam sharp of the Ohio Farm Bureau Federation. Adam keeps me busy keeps you busy keeps farmers busy talking about water quality these days. And there's a lot that happens at the federal level that, that plays a role in, in what's going on there last year. Appreciate the invitation from Senator Brown to come out to Washington DC to share a little bit about what we've been doing here in Ohio, with farmville dollars that come through in our CS, and through other mechanisms they're helpful to water quality and a traffic hearing from number of folks around the country. But we're able to share so things that we've done here that are innovative in particular with our demonstration farms network that we partner farm bureau within our CS to set up in the middle of the base, in up there that, that highlights number practices at farmers can take and get some insight on the economic viability of, of implementing those practices that on their farms that will help water. Quality, appreciate your support for the farm, Bill for in our CS in particular, they're one of our terrific partners on the ground here in the state, that we have to rely on to help with to make sure that we're doing everything we can water quality and also to move out this cost share dollars communities to help on water quality. So a big deal for us here in Ohio. It's one of the things that we've been focusing on now for several years. And we'll obviously continue for number of years to come in important in thanks him for that. I the farm Bill had major provisions on issuing on dealing with water quality big everything from filter scripts, which we've now done for years along creeks, that farmers get get compensated for not planning out to the edge of the creek to the conservation resource program to the conservation reserve program to what we do with planning ground cover to all the with, with barley and other things. And in it's important that, that farmers enroll in these programs. I did around table, and I believe it was wood county back, maybe year and a half ago and John McCracken an office done a number of them. And all over the state been have been really eliminating for me on how we do this to make sure that we can bipartisan figure out every kind of way to keep our waterways clean us center, Portman, I have teamed up on their been proposed cuts from the Trump administration used to the Great Lakes restoration initiative. It's been something that's been around for more than a decade. We know if you're old enough to remember this, you know, what lake you're a look like in the nineteen fifty sixties into the seventies, we did a, a massive federal state local community cleanup of the lakes. We have to maintain that, that cleanliness, if you will, of the lake the quality in understanding Lake Erie, and Toledo is only thirty feet deep contrast lake superior is six hundred feet deep on the average and lake area so much more vulnerable because there's more form land or more people. It's shallower lake in the other Great Lakes. So it really is incumbent upon us. And that's why Senator Portman I buy partly teamed up to make sure the president's cuts to the Great Lakes fund weren't going to happen. It's about is important to, you know, it's important chemically or state, people fish. There's recreational boating. There's drinking water. There's agriculture. There's all that, where we depend on our great lake and it, it, it, we want to continue to keep it in the quality been able to build up to Senator Sherrod Brown. Our guest, I probably shouldn't start this because we only got a minute or two before the break. But I'll cut you off. That's all right. The day we recorded this was day, one of round two of increased tariffs on Chinese imports agricultural prices being hit hard. Give us your thoughts on where we stand in the gauche eating with the Chinese. Are we doing things the way you think will be affective? I'm concerned with how it's playing out. I. I have seen talking to I seen what's happened with soybean prices. I've seen what's happened to foreign markets. I, I know that it takes it takes years to build up these foreign markets for soybeans and corn especially, but really anything anything and I'm very concerned that, that I mean I appreciate the president's wanting to put a few billion dollars to help farmers. But if they're losing these markets and it's depressing prices, both things seem to be happening. We have a long longer term problem. I, I, I look at tariff says they are a temporary tool for a law for improving long-term policy. But the read the president got off to a bad start on this because he initially aimed the tariffs at Canada. And western Europe are allies instead of coalescing with them in initially aiming the tariffs, China, I, I, I agree that China's a problem, I agree that they cheat. I agree that they subsidize all kinds of economic all kinds of manufactured. Products. But I also think that if this, if the president doesn't figure this out in the next few weeks, the damage to rule America into much of industrial Erica, is, is pretty significant. And I, I said, I support the idea of tariffs, if done right if they're seen as a temporary tool to enact a long-term policy, but I'm very concerned about this next round. Seems to be getting worse and worse with president Xi and President Trump going back at each other in an escalating trade war, which the president seems to think we're winning and I don't know. Many farmers think we are our very special guest this week in the studio. Ohio's senior. Senator Sherrod Brown. Adam Sharpe also with us. Adam is the exact for the Ohio Farm Bureau Federation, and will be hearing more from the Senator. And Adam when we continue in a moment. Just a quick reminder. We've been really fortunate to have some top line guests in the studio with this recently if there's ever weekend broadcasts.

"Senator Sherrod Brown with us today on townhall, Ohio. This is townhall. Ohio home to interesting, people engaging issues and enlightening stories, townhall Ohio, is the production of the Ohio Farm Bureau Federation, working together for farmers to advance egg recall, -ture and strengthen our communities and is supported by nationwide nationwide is on your side. Now, here's townhall Ohio host Joe. Cornelie. Sheriff Brown has served in the Ohio house, as Ohio's, secretary of state as a member of the US house. And now as a United States Senator he is first Senator in some fifty years to serve on the Senate Ag committee. And he is always willing to spend time with townhall high listeners and members of the Ohio farm bureau. The Senator welcome back to town hall, Ohio. Glad to have you in the studio at farm bureau with Adam anew, thanks. Yeah. This is pretty fun. Adam Senator in appreciate having a Senator here and joining us again so about this time. Well, actually, it was early on in twenty nineteen. I called Matt some your folks said, we'd like to get the Senator in and he said, well, we'll do that. And then the next thing, I know, you're in Iowa and you're in the Carolinas, and you have to kind of an exciting start to, to twenty nineteen and a feeling out the waters for, for running for the presidency talk a little bit about that. Senator what went into thinking about it, and then opting to not I had never thought about. I've known you for how many years. Calls, but I never had a great desire to run for president. You've never heard me mention it, it's November after the election after winning a state. It's tough as for democrat, I some people started talking to me, and we, we decided to embark on what we call her dignity of work tour into each of the four early primary states and to me, I don't think either party think Republicans or Democrats, talked to working families enough in, when I say, working families, it's whether you punch a clock or whether you swipe a badge, whether you're taking care of aging, parents are raising children, whether you were gonna salary, whether you're whether you're working in a hospital, whether you have a small business we just I don't, I don't think government pays enough attention to, to workers views that way and small businesses views and on my spent parts of, of weekends for weekends, and those, those four states on the end I didn't, I think our message was heard. I hear a number of candidates us on both parties actually using the term increasingly using the term. Dignity of work. I think that's I think we, we've helped change the narrative, and I wanna keep doing that in this campaign as a non-candidate in most of my colleagues running for president have planned to do this for one year, five years, ten years, some of them ran for the Senate in order to run for president. I just didn't have that, that sort of unbridled desire to be present United States. You simply can't run a year and a half campaign and go through what you go through if you don't really want it. So in the end it was, it was not a hard decision in that way. But it was it was a joy to see the country from that perspective. And those four states are fairly Representative there. They don't have big urban areas like Ohio, but they're pretty Representative of the country taken together, the four states. So without you in there were down to, I don't know. Now, that's that's as of yesterday. Yeah. So what, what's the process for the Democratic Party going to look like here? I mean twenty one's a large number two little down from. So how do you see publicans for years ago? Four years ago had seventeen in its whittled down. And there's not much whittling during the odd numbered year. Twenty fifteen for them, twenty nineteen for Democrats. A couple may drop out because they're not raising any money, but you can you whether you raise the money or not, and you can get free free media, you can travel the country, you can speak to generally smaller groups. So I don't know if anybody drops this year, but once the real voting starts in the caucuses, and as you saw when Trump was the nominee for the Republicans, the seventeen dropped twelve to ten date. And then by in the end, it was just a house. Governor John casick on was Rubio, John case again, Trump and then it just didn't have the delegates or the money. And in the end money drives a big. Part of it. But there's, there's so much out there now in terms of grassroots fundraising and grassroots efforts that I assume that field won't shrink appreciably till about February, and then it'll shrink in smaller numbers until there are two or three something Senator that you did so well. And you've done it so well, in Ohio, since you, I ran for Senate here in the state and something that I think other democrat candidates can learn something from from you is the connection you made around the state by going out and sitting down with the very people, you just mentioned a few minutes ago, whether it was small businesses families rural Ohio. Farmers listening in small groups taking pieces of that input and then acting on it, and that's something that you've done very well. And I was very interested when you when you started having these these other meetings around the around the country with voters to talk about those things because that's something where I do believe that other democratic candidates are going to have to for Ohio, in particular for these for some of these mid western states. Some of these swing states that seems a. Place of connection that you have done. You've done that very well. And I'm not sure that some of the others have learned that yet. Coming from these particular states. I think that the, the practice is you actually sit. And listen. And it's hard to do that in campaigns in the way, I really learned to do. This was based really more than a decade ago when we started working on the first farm Bill that I help right in my first days in the ad committee. And John McCracken us in the studio with me. Liz in Columbus, worked on our Ag issues for the entire my entire twelve and a half years in the Senate. And we will sit around I remember one we went to the hearse farm, and your chillicothe from Bainbridge Ross county, and then went to see went to grain farmers in northwest Ohio and talked about what do we do about run off? And what do we do about? I'm your e issues and then went to see the special some, some dairy farmers in southeast and eastern northeast Ohio, and in you sit around the table with a dozen people, whether it's farmers or veterans or workers are teachers. You get a perspective that you don't necessarily get from making a speech. Each or reading briefing. So we often one of the things I'm proudest of is every farm Bill on the one we just complete or we got eighty seven votes more than any farm bills ever gotten in my memory, obviously strong bipartisan votes to five years earlier and five years before that he time, we had some major provision in the Bill that helped us that, that we learned from these round. So in presidential races, I when I went to these four states, I probably did more listening than the average candidate because I really wanted to sort of see from the ground up, you can't do a whole campaign sitting around listening to twelve people. You gotta speak to millions overall, but I think that, that would that's useful for us. I think it would have been useful that I don't think President Trump's ever said and rips like that. And listen, I'm not sure that, that Joe Biden has either I think it's important that the candidates just start to absorb what's going on in our country there. You mentioned the farm Bill Senator of as you look back on, we, we could spend the whole hour talking about that. But pick maybe one or two of the top pieces that applied both to farmers and to consumers that you feel was good policy for America within the farm Bill. Yeah. Thank you. And I it's hard to narrow it to one or two. I, I start with the farm Bill and understanding, you know that the percentage of Ohioans that are, that are actually farmers is small and shrinking even the percentage of Ohio that work on or near a farm and agriculture is is small. But I also recognize that one in seven one in eight jobs in Ohio, is connected to food and agriculture. And so the, the way that I talk about the farmville especially non-farm groups, because that's where most of the state is, is you talk about it as a, a nutrition Bill, a family farmer Bill on economic development, Bill, a rural development Bill, a an environmental Bill to keep Lake Erie, clean, and keep our lands and waters clean. So you talk about it in those terms and people begin understand. It's very important for nutrition. We've put a lot of effort into feeding programs in schools, and that those schools are in rural areas just as much as urban areas. We've talked a lot about the the program. They are see program we started on working with Senator thune, originally, it started back with Senator Lugar, Republican from Indiana. We've talked to her everything from where, you know what, what specific things we need to do with dairy, because we know, commodity prices commodity prices generally and, and milk prices have been stagnant or worse, in the last five years since the last farm Bill commodity prices are way down from what they were. When we did the farm Bill, I guess, six seven years ago, commodity prices were into the farmers were doing really well. Now, they're not, that's why we do it every five years. So the farm Bill, unlike most things we do in congress. They're, they're intrinsically bipartisan, but they're also they're also we update them to address farm issues day by day week by week and month by month and Adams input with Adam and the farm bureau when I speak. Every year to the farm bureau in Washington, I get good perspective on sort of what needs to be changed every year, we do this. Our listeners should know that obviously, he's a Senator, you're, you're pretty darned busy, but every time we're in DC you make time to be there and you come in to be on townhall, Ohio. It, it doesn't go unnoticed, senators appreciated. So another big issue for farmers, and all rural Ohioans in the coming year or years. We've got a lot of infrastructure problems, whether it's roads and bridges or a lack of broadband. Do we hold out? Some hope that there might be some type of infrastructure legislation that could becoming in the short only of groups like the farm bureau, really put the heat on members of congress and state legislatures. I remember back during the during the fracking when, when fracking was front and center, five, six years ago in Ohio is starting to be a major center for, and I remember some people in the legislature wanted to to. Put a wellhead tax on fracking, even lower even the proposal was lower than it would have been than it wasn't Texas where, which is an oil and gas state in those dollars would have gone for infrastructure in those communities because we know while fracking can be good economics for local community. It also needs a lot of infrastructure around it. Particularly when the fracking has done, but even at the time is the big trucks, come in and all that we missed an opportunity, then I think the state continues to miss opportunities for investing in infrastructure. President Trump's promised first trillion and a half now two trillion dollars for infrastructure. There's no Bill coming out of the White House. I think I've, I've heard of a writing a Bill that had for trillion dollar infrastructure over ten years. And, and we know those needs. We know what's happened with water and sewer. We know bridges highways roads, we know rural rural broadband, all those things of mass transit all those things are part of public infrastructure. And I think it only happens. If groups like the farm near really turn the heat up on congress and say, do it until the president. Here's what we want. You've got to do it in the next year. I don't see it unless there's a lot more pressure. My colleagues, we are kind of good at that atom of making our wishes note in the nation's capital. We do that on time from time to time and I appreciate you mentioned a couple of those things into we do have some activity that are happening here in the state, which were glad to see happening state house. Right. But on the federal side, right? There's still grand debate going on right about infrastructure. But we're all broadband, you mentioned. And that's the one I would lift up and say, you know, that's obviously critical to the state of Ohio. When you can move not even an hour outside of the city of Columbus, and you're struggling thirty-three any further and you're really struggling, but it is amazing. How much we still struggle with that type of service, even in this state. I remember talking to young woman, high school kid, maybe ninth grade tenth grade. And she said that she she lives in a valley. And when she studies, she goes to a grandmother. House up on top hill. I think she lives in Jackson county, but it was somewhere in sort of southeast Columbus, like Adam Savage in. That's just insane that we northwest Ohio is not as big a problem because it's flatter and a little, wealthier but southeast Ohio, especially rural.
