hour podcast some of us have to work tomorrow all right here we go let's jump right into 1967 musical events in 1967 and the year kicks off right away with a bomb a bomb on January 4th the doors release can arguably one of the greatest debut records ever arguably if you had a top 25 greatest debut that albums would have to be in the top 10 it would have to be yeah you know if you had a top 50 that would have to be in the top 10 right even if you don't like them you have to say that was so ahead of its time oh it's so different nothing out there was like the needle and all you hear it kicks I mean fucking what a way to start an album it's a heavy song it with a bossa nova beat yeah I mean that's pretty clever yeah 67 so you know bossa nova was pretty hip again John Densmore over underrated underrated underappreciated I think you are you are so correct you know never gets the the the consideration that I I don't know you can't put him in greatest of all time but could he be okay if there's a top there's a top 25 drummer top 25 drummers is he in it good question and in rock we'll just say in rock I think he could be I could see him making so I don't know if he's a universal pick but I could see him on some list I mean he's something you'd have to think about like you said like it doesn't get noticed so much you know yeah yeah or it I mean although his drumming wasn't shy I mean he's jazzy as hell I heard um writers on the storm yesterday and his adjustment playing is great in his adjustments during the shows just for that yeah yeah the unpredictability of you know how the how the song was gonna go right because they could rehearse it all they want once Morrison got into that zone well in the drama keeps the beat right yeah yeah the drummer has to stay up with that yeah and played to the clown so to speak right you know and my my problem is if some of the clowns don't have the beat you know at one point they've got to give in like I said Morrison or even Dylan they'll set the tone but they've got to be steady themselves you know it's yeah otherwise it's just erratic but you know yeah guy like Dan's more I mean I had skill I had a lot of a lot of technical ability right feel yes cool so obviously his drums always sounded good yeah on the earlier on the other records even you know three years worth of music whatever I guess I would be who produced some Jack Holtzman was the producer did a good job Jekyll or now wait so no what was it Paul Rothchild yes yes yes I'm sorry Holtzman was he on the record company yeah yeah was that it was that chrysalis or chrysalis I think or just like yes that's a lecture a lecture weren't they on chrysalis though also I thought they were yeah maybe maybe chrysalis was a subsidiary but uh yeah Jack Holtzman's son is Adam Holtzman he's a keyboardist right now he plays with here we go Stephen Wilson but he does a little blog on Facebook and he talks about growing up and he was like six years old and his father brought him to a club to see the tour Wow at six years old he just talks about like yeah it's a great little blog Wow all right and four days later on January 8th Elvis Presley turned 32 on January 14th the human be in right the human be e -i -n human being takes place in San Francisco's Golden Gate Park polo fields with spoken words from Timothy Leary Allen Ginsberg Gary Snyder in others live music was provided by Jefferson Airplane the Grateful Dead Big Brother in the holding company and Quicksilver Messenger Service speeches from Jerry Rubin and others were also given at the event although it's one band there I liked yeah Quicksilver Messenger Service who was it on January 15th 1967 who is your favorite poet of all them I know you're not asking me Arthur Rimbaud who influenced Jim Morrison good answer good answer way to bring that first opening segment rough full circle we're getting better Scott we're good now you guys get a lot of good trust me I'm getting a lot of good feedback so let's keep it at that I don't want you son ask for more money and on January 15th 1967 the Rolling Stones appear on the Ed Sullivan show at Ed Sullivan's request finish it he asked them to let's spend sing let's spend some time together is that the one there you go yeah and then he told him a really big shoe I hate to do this I mean I come back on penalty box I don't say just he beat my record okay look he just got on the show after late and these are either he's stuck he's frozen put the dog nose back on where'd it go are you throw it at the camera like your headphones on January 16th 1967 the monkeys begin work on headquarters the first album to give them complete artistic and technical control over their material and it was fucking horrible fucking horrible what were they thinking they know they were thinking the egos got too big they thought they were the music well the argument can be made that you know Mike Nesmith did write different drum yeah so he could write songs but I don't think he was a pop songwriter you know headquarters and they try to be all fucking like 60 ish and shit they weren't looking for pop were they they're trying to be like more psychedelic yeah I think so there were their channel on the Beatles with those quirky little yeah with anti -grizzelles on that I don't know some weird shit I'll tell you what though I don't care about it myself but it was surely a harpsichord on it because that's what all those records had they had to have a harpsichord and I have the book this the 100 best -selling records of the 60s the monkeys got a they've had quite a few albums on there oh they do yeah they were they were but I mean I thought it was just a condensed period of the show which it probably was but it's still I mean they've got I mean most of their albums sold really well yeah yeah ah you like the show what's it is like the show I did I still like it I still love it I love that that that's so that humor is great like dumbed down brilliantly done though humor yeah way was what they were supposed to act like that yeah you know what I mean there was no like these guys are bad actors they knew exactly how to do that they pulled it off great it was campy it was great for its time it's still great to watch now yeah I do think that banana splits were a better band yeah that's I'll give you the banana splits were a kick -ass band yeah yeah kick -ass man did you see the movie recently came out it's a horror movie with the banana splits the banana splits movie it's a horror movie yeah yeah it takes

A highlight from The Mike and Mark Davis Daily Chat - 07/19/23
"It is Ann Wilson's birthday, the greatness of heart magic man. Ann Wilson, 73. A voice so distinctive that... You remember when Tina Turner passed? And nobody loved Tina Turner more than me, Mike. I loved her. Oh, I don't know. People call her the... Well, I agree. Okay, well, we'll have the love off. We're tied. But there are people who said, Tina Turner, queen of rock and roll. Wait a minute, whoa, what? She had a couple of rock -tinged, poppy albums, but no, that was just weird. So then the question arose, who is? I mean, king of rock and roll might be Elvis, maybe Chuck Berry, et cetera, et cetera, but the queen, I don't know. So if there's a Mount Rushmore, Ann Wilson, Pat Benatar, Janis Joplin, I don't know who goes on that. But anyway, whatever your thought is on that, Ann Wilson is 73. Happy birthday. How was your day yesterday? It's good. I mean, I'm still sort of reeling from what is going to be a third arrest of the 45th president of the United States. Can I first say that your monologue today on the realities of January 6th is so perfect, and I don't like to kiss up to you because it always goes to your head. I love it, however. But I want to play, with your permission, I want to play, you did about three minutes. You did three to four minutes. You said it was 45 seconds, and only in your mind do you think a four -minute monologue sounds like 45 seconds. But every word of it was perfect, Mark. You're so, I want somebody to give me one single thing that has been reported, that we have any knowledge about, that could lead to Trump going to jail over January 6th. What did he say or do that would be, in anyone, any normal person's universe, considered criminal? Now, you could argue he didn't give a forceful enough speech. He didn't come out, you know, strongly enough. Strongly enough. He didn't condemn the, I mean, he did say go home after the rioting began. Took a while, but okay. But he did. Sure. Before the rioting, he said go peacefully protest. I mean, and so what you said was so eloquent and so perfect. You talk about January 6th breaking people, and you're spot on. I mean, and it breaks even media entities. I'm going to, I'm really, I don't want to be obsessed with Fox News. I was talking to an old friend of mine yesterday, a mentor, somebody that I've known for decades. And he said to me, boy, Fox News is the go -to now for me. I rely on Fox News for everything. And I've been giving this a lot of thought. Yesterday on The Five, arguably their highest -rated show, got five personalities sitting around in a gab fest. It's a very good formula, different people, liberal. They got one or two token liberals, and they got the rest are conservatives, and the conservatives always steamroll the liberals. And it's kind of fun to watch. Mark, they didn't mention this epic, disastrous, disgraceful affront one time.
Federal probe finds hospitals that denied emergency abortion broke law
"The Biden administration's warning hospitals that it violates federal law to deny emergency abortions to women whose lives are in jeopardy, citing a recent case. The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services says two hospitals. One in Missouri and one in Kansas refused to provide an emergency abortion to Melissa farmer of Joplin, Missouri, putting her life in jeopardy and breaking the law with their refusals. HHS secretary Javier becerra says farmer went into premature labor at 17 weeks, the fetus would not survive, and she could lose her uterus, but because there was a fetal heartbeat, the states prohibited an abortion. He says federal law protecting a mother trumps the state laws protecting a fetus and says farmers should have never gone through this terrifying ordeal. Finally getting an abortion in Illinois. Federal officials are sending warnings to the two hospitals involved, asking them to correct the policies that

"Stacked high next piles of paper on low ranking degenerates reports for the directors is only reports on good guys breaking bad and bad guys getting worse recommendations on who should be watch like a hawk and who could be left alone to mind their own damn business. It was nineteen seventy j. Edgar hoover was seventy five years old. He'd seen it all for nearly half a century and in the service of seven. Us presidents as director the federal bureau of investigation j. Edgar hoover had a memo on every subversive every commie sympathizer every fascist organizer. Every civil rights. Empathizing no memo was unimportant. No threat to the united states was too small the coffee maker on the table near the desk in his office. Gurgle than spat steve that universal sound. That meant that. The job was nearly finished with its. Orderly perk in warm nation is nine hoover inhaled the smell of the light roast and picked up a memo that lay on top of a short stack of papers on the corner of his desk. Urgent teletype red at the top possible violence ravina park concert highland park illinois august fifth nineteen seventy. This wasn't the first confidential rock and roll memo. He'd read and it wouldn't be the last. In fact memos on rockstars have become increasingly commonplace in over world. Rock and roll was proving itself to be very clear and very present danger to decency in good morals in the fifties. The memos were about the various death threats and extortion attempts on elvis presley in the sixties. The memos were about the king's men's filthy song. Louie louie which who knew was a piece of trash even if their investigation had been conclusively proved it was a piece of trash. And now is the sixties became the seventies with richard nixon. At the how the members were on the rock and roll sa- versus in street fighting types jimi hendrix. Jim morris janice joplin who've read on reliable source advised at rock concerts to be held at ravenna park beginning. Approximately eight pm rock singer. Janice joplin service crowd estimated to be a neighborhood of twenty thousand persons. Hoover walked over to the coffee maker. Pulled the carafe drip in started to pour self director sized cup of joe. He kept one eye on the poor in one eye. On the memo. He kept reading source. Further advises unconfirmed reports have been received possible attempts to disrupt concert and cause violence in area by unknown persons. Possibly by some of those involved in disruption or chicago grant park concert. July twenty seven thousand nine hundred seventy source. Further advised review. Nia park area was to be heavily patrolled by some two hundred police officers from nearby. Community's god damn grant park hoover thought to himself as he blew on the hot liquid and attempted to take a first sip that wouldn't burn his lips to hell grand park and then a shit show. It was pitched as a free show by sly and the family stone. And you better believe. The bureau had some memos on that bunch of left coach. Shit show starters. The free show is both an apology and peace offering to chicago after slide bailed on playing some shows in town and not just bailing failing after making audiences wait for hours but at grant park chicago was still pissed it sly when he showed up only to be made to wait again. The crowd grew throughout the day and of the temperature soon. The crowd was around fifty thousand strong. The mercury was topping out at ninety. Something rumors started to spread throughout the audiences sly was standing them up once more when chicago was tired of waiting again. That's the rock started flying in the bottles. Whatever people can get their hands on mud. Clouds sticks stones the throngs of cops on hand that day took the brunt of the hurled projectiles bottles to the face rocks. The qualls did picked up their attackers. Weapons and retaliated cops jumped kids. Kids jump cough storefront windows busted shots fired into the air to scare them off into submission. They only made the mob go harder. Hundreds of people including chicago. Police officers were injured. Thirty cops went into the hospital that day. Hoover sat down at his desk and read over the ravine park memo again. His coffee cup started to make its inevitable. Stay on another stack of memos nearby. As shitty is grand park was this janice joplin show had the potential of even worse j. Edgar hoover didn't like janice joplin. She was a loose lipped hippie sake abyss with a voice like a strangled cat and he but worse she was a troublemaker. A rabble rouser. She hailed from san francisco. The land of rabble-rousers. She was drunk. She was loud. She had a filthy mouth. She was in a lady. She was too masculine for j. Edgar hoover not masculine enough. But that's a whole other story. Who renew the janice joplin had a long history of disturbing the peace. The first memo janice joplin that hoover remembered seeing was when she was a student at the university of texas at austin living with that group commun- civil rights sympathizers at the ghetto and then her first group big brother and the holding company were nearly arrested for disturbing the peace at the matrix in san francisco. Worst of all ever was her show at the curtis hixon hall in tampa florida. This was the year before. Nineteen sixty nine just a few months. After jim morrison unzipped his pants. To let us crawling. King snake out while on stage miami. What the hell is it about florida. Hoover thought as he took another gentle sip of steaming. Hot coffee genesis new band. The one assemble by skip. Pro cop was calling themselves the cosmic blues band and torn behind a new record. I got them all cosmic blues again. Momma but skip was out of the picture having jumped ship when janice wouldn't give sam andrew. The boo who followed her from big brother skipped and think sam was good enough. So skip was out in san jose. It was bill king on keyboards john till on guitar brad campbell on bass and mary baker on drums along with a horn section. At least at that particular moment if big brother had maintained a steady lineup of players in the cosmic blues band is practically a revolving door of musicians who was unsteady. And the unsteadiness was in full display on that november night and tampa at the curtis hixon hall. So is genesis infamous rabble-rousing temper the one that hoover count on like well-maintained wristwatch when she started the slow simmer summertime the crowd. Nearly thirty five hundred people bomb rushed the stage. They press their bodies closer here. Every nuance inner voice. This on chairs to see every move. She made the microphone clenched tightly. Inner fist the cops on duty sell the cards behavior as the early warning. Sign of an impending right the same kind of thing. The cops seen at the door. Show miami the door. Show at the singer. Bowl in queens. The cops didn't wait to spring into action. The yanked people down off their chairs. Grab kids standing in the aisles by the shoulders and push them towards their seats. One officer even at bullhorn was screaming within inches of petrified. Kids faces when janice lost him. Don't thought that those people she yelled into a microphone yelling ladder. She could so that she could be heard. Over the bullhorns nasal wide. The bullhorn became a weapon. The cop waved at a heads and faces his free hand firmly caressing his billy club. He just wanted someone give him a reasonable use. It jazz was happy to be that someone. Hey mr genesee all began this time looking cop right and this is why the fuck you saw tight man. Did you buy a five dollar ticket to the show. And that was the cop. Needed justice had suspected for some time obscene janice went blue. She curse on stage numerous times each time directed at an officer of the law. Then they arrested her in her dressing right. After the band finished their said she was led out of the curtis hixon hall and handcuffs. Pass the thousands of kids who have pressed themselves close to be near pass. bb king chicago.

But still a nose bleeds and nose bleed and then there were the burn marks from the cigarettes that had been stubbed out hustlers who were poised to take the shot but it also happen to reach the end of their smoke. It was easier to stay position in squish. It out on the table than to stand up and ruined the sweet set up janice joplin had never really seen a pristine pool table. Entertain one years. It made no difference to her. The thing was spotless or not. All she cared about is whether the table was flat or not and at this moment in this particular new york city bar on the lower side janus needed to bank the shot. She had ten bucks riding. I and that ten bucks meant another score. She needed to get high needed to land some more speed. She'd swallowed snorted. Shoot matter how a came she had had it. She leaned over the table closed.

Ignored the other stairs that she knew coming our way for men and women alike. Some stairs like daggers. And others like lost. She left fly on the q the ball when exactly where she wanted to go. She turned around to face her opponent. Man out loud for the whole place to hear laughing. That big generous laugh verse. The hand was outstretched in front of her opponent. Ready to receive cold hard cash that she would immediately turn into a warm hearted. Hi this broads fucking robbing the joint. Someone said from a few tables away. Beer bottles clink together and a table of middle age guys. Chuckle the regulars at the bar janice was all right. She was taught she was funny. She took no shit. She regaled them all with tales of how she'd grown up and join this places like the infamous keyhole club in port arthur. a dive frequented by gamblers hookers. She told him about the time she busted this kid. John clay upside the head with a metal pale when he was pissed that she had dumped him in about the time of the big oak.

The place in the bartender was in the middle of making three gin and tonics and a tom collins. He was fucking busy and he told the stick of guy that he was going to have to wait his turn. No shit janice asked no shit. The regular dolder her. The stick of guy eventually got tired of waiting for the bartender to pay him attention so he turned around and split janice wondered if the story was even true. The place was packed when she was there. How sling a little pool for a meager payday. And besides this rundown spot on the lower east side didn't exactly scream hotspot. But it wasn't like she was a regular at this place. She had only been in new york city for a few weeks and she wasn't planning on staying forever. It was the spring of nineteen sixty four in janice.

The ones who came out at night the ones who would do anything. I score the ones who made the taurus flesh crawl. New york city was still a few years away from being rebranded fierce city. The town that required its own user manual to help visitors avoid shocking and violent experience some some neighborhoods. Were getting close. Drug dealers stake their claim on street.

Janice was one of the winners of the open mic contests on saturday morning at the festival which gave her tickets to watch the rest of the festival including dylan's performance. On saturday evening. It was the first time she'd ever seen him perform live. The red wine purple hearts combo had proven to be a hindrance to her performances as she forgot lyrics. Miss notes sometimes missed entire gigs. But this weekend this weekend she nailed it. She played some of her signature blues songs. Trouble in mind. Nobody knows you when you're down and out as she sang them with your well-worn gravelly voice wise beyond tears. She sang them as if she had lived every single word. She impressed the judges enough to taste victory. That we can't now she was tasting the purple pill.

Fucking winston churchill pop per parts for chrissakes and they'd be banned within a year janice ran her tongue around in her mouth trying to cast out. Lingering taste she worried that her tongue was swan. A side effect from the pill or the wine or maybe the combination of the two of them. At least she thought it was swollen.

Patty mcqueen and a basement party patty's house. They had a captive audience. Which eventually included.

Patty screamed both in shock. Jack's busted face and also at her husband's bubbling rage.

"You could be entertained all night by whatever appeared in front of us. Were cool about it. Captain on the down though 'cause even though this was austin in the year nineteen sixty six austin was still in texas in texas was still a long ways away from embracing the burgeoning counterculture. The ban knew it. They were living proof they were none other than the thirteenth floor elevators and they were playing shows under the radar while the elevators dared to challenge the status quo texas and the rednecks. Of texas responded. Texas was terrified psychedelic. Rock groups threatened the moral fabric of a god fearing american state. So texas would hunt down. The elevators led by the eighteen year. Old rockier at wrestling broadcast the bus on local television and make them the enemy of the old fashioned conservative values. It was a few months earlier in january of nineteen sixty six. When the raid happened the band was hanging out at tommy hall's place talking about their latest rehearsal arguing over which covers that include and their set that week while taking big tokes of killer grass. Tommy was the group's electric jug player. The first and best of its kind a musical role he had invented and then used to set the elevators apart from everyone else frat bands like the whig the baby cakes and the fabulous chevelle. The elevators mike up tommaso klay whiskey chug and he would blow these propulsive grossly notes that sounded like transmissions from another planet. Tommy was demonstrating some of the new moves. He created these double notes that he'd get when he flicked his tongue as he tutored on the jugs top when the door was flung open austin police then the vice squad was inside. Warren held high for all see. They found two pounds of marijuana side. And then even more when they searched the apartments of other band members including rockies.

She sang lonesome covers of buffy sainte. Marie kodi ray charles drown in my own tears. She escaped texas once already. A poetic journey to the promised. Land liberation way out in california. But it was a bummer trip. She returned to her hometown of port. Arthur defeated and skinny with a meth habit to threaten to kill her but she knew the port. Arthur was just as deadly for her shooting meth in san francisco so it was a relief when she enrolled in the university of texas at austin and crawled out of her oppressive hometowns. More in austin. She fell in with like minded crowd. Beat knicks artists and musicians the longhairs that would radicalize texas from the inside out. She brought her guitar therapy. Music was her therapy employed shows at folk loans in houston and austin and then she saw rocky at the methodist students center auditorium standing tall hair. Short looking as respectable as the vice squad wanted to but underneath that facade rocky outlaw there were all she saw the eye of providence and she was under its spell and then rocky saying his voice sharp and raw shrieking and screeching and she was under his spell and just like the thirteenth floor elevators carried out from the methodist student center auditorium on the wind janice would let herself be carried off black car full of hippies who had driven all the way from san francisco just to find her her old friend. Chet helms was putting together a band and thought janice would be perfect as a singer. So perfect the chat personally sent a few of his vice free on a road trip to track down. It was faded late. She had been set up to witness rocky and his band only to then be transported back to the west coast where she could become exactly what she had.

There is no stage. The night is a blank canvas and from their stories differ. You could ask one hundred different people about what they experienced. And you get one hundred different answers. One guy said that every vibration that came from the dead's amplifiers the pranksters mobius loops was like novella. The music spoke to him and so did the noise it was like he was reading another novell. Every time a new vibration would enter his body. Someone else said that it rained inside the fillmore all night. It was just thunder and lightning alike went. He couldn't believe that it was raining inside the auditorium for one thing. The place had a working roof and also wasn't even raining outside. How is this even possible as he said all night long just walking around shouting and people's faces. How is this even possible. A girl said she saw god. He was smoking the lucky strike wearing a cloth. Diaper course was a guy said. He saw fire-breathing dragon playing a trumpet and another girl said that the flashing lights affected her so much that she never stopped seeing. She went home that night. Sometime after two wants the cops had shown up to shut it all down for the city's noise ordinances. She couldn't fall see all. She saw with a flashing lights not just flashing lights but faces in the flashing lights weeks months later. They're still there like they're imprinted on her brain. And then there was that one guy who totally freaked the fuck out. Lost his shit. He started receiving transmissions from jerry garcia's guitar and there were notes of i very musical on what jerry was playing the more the notes became signals like an sos being tapped out in morse code from the deck of a large boat tossed in a choppy sea like a plastic bag in the wind. Soon the guitar was no longer generating musical sounds. It was all monotone bleeps and blue chips and the bleeps and blues became scratching. Sounds like fingers on a chalkboard the longest fingernails dragging down the longest chalkboard to sound toward years. He thought his here's were bleeding. So he put his hands up to his ears touch them and then looked at his hands and when he did his hands reverse his right hand was on his left hand as left him was his right so he grabbed a nearby chair. Started to drag it across the floor to make the same scratching. Saudi heard coming from jerry's guitar. Maybe two similar scratching sounds would cancel each other out shown. That was stupid. That was going to help. All the guy couldn't take it anymore. He ran from the fillmore screaming. Got behind the wheel of his ford galaxie and ran into a ditch. Yes tested the fillmore. The trips festival longshoreman's hall public experiments were thousands of people could trip together in a controlled environment. That whatever you want them to be they could be a powerful source of inspiration of knowledge and creativity. They could be a portal to a personal health. A sensory overload of sights sounds and sensations could forever alter one's maive for janice joplin. Acid wasn't of great interest. She didn't like the lack of control. She felt like she was. I saw an acid test. Wasn't exactly see but san francisco. The city by the bay gave all the freaks and weirdoes outlet to do their thing. No matter how far out no matter how groove san francisco with it brother. There was a place where janice can be liberated. The city felt like freedom. The music she played with big brothers sounded like freedom freedom to do as she wanted to say what you want to dress the way. She's on it. She could shed the baggage of port. Arthur the town that attempted to beat the strange right out of in san francisco janice can be strange in the presence of others. Who are equally strange. Didn't matter what you into. Everybody was cool. The hate rundown and grungy was teeming with signs of the time flower. Anarchist's heads long haired freaky people kids like her who had escaped. Oppressive families ignorant towns regressive cultures. They walk together in street. Parades dance together. Public parks pashto. Plans in living rooms got their minds blown and concert halls. But even though janice didn't exactly conform to the non-conforming acid had clicked. San francisco would introduce many other drugs drugs. It was shut down or mine. Not expanded stuff that she'd send directly to her veins shots of vibrant insanity that would counteract drowsy feeling. She got from alcohol. Drugs were everywhere. The first head shop in the country was right. There smack dab in the middle of it all to walk into the psychedelic shop on haight street was to receive an assault. On the senses pipes posters incense cosmic swirl of colors aromas and free floating ideas. The books they offered weren't exactly light reading tomes on lsd eastern religion and metaphysics. Miss straight up. Commerce wasn't your bag. You can get your stuff for free from the diggers. An activist group who thought capitalism was the death of humanity they envisioned a communal economy devoid of money and handed out free food food that had been stolen from other local markets because well it all belong to the people anyway right so it wasn't really stealing according to them in san francisco's local. Music scene was equally expansive and challenging. The soundtrack of the revolution was free in big big melting. Pot were john. Lewis could be boiled down and built back up. San francisco had a sound in nineteen sixty six. That was instantly definable. Even if you couldn't put your finger on. It was the sound of the grateful. Dead big brother and the holding company and jefferson airplane quicksilver messenger service moby grape. The charlatans and so on october six thousand nine hundred sixty six when the state of california officially criminalized the possession of lsd. It felt like an attack to all the champions of strange who are working hard. Make the counterculture new reality. Even the date itself was a bad side. Ten six sixty six six six six. It's right there. The number of the beast hiding in plain sight. The children of the revolution decided they'd hold a peaceful protest on that very day. Oct six nineteen sixty six and so they drag this shit a few blocks up from their commute pads in the hate in the panhandle the golden gate park for the love pageant organizers spread the word to the orc and underground newspaper that it only published a few issues skiing with ride. The crowd is only around two thousand strong. They dressed in free flowing. Clothes and tightened headbands enough. Bees make burden street jobless. They brought tambourines and handmade signs and carried little. Children were spitting images of himself. They held hands and swung around in circles rings of people in constant motion. Kim is mary. Priced rolled up in their dayglo international harvester bus kids inside and sitting on top playing flutes and flying flags just back from a cross country track with annoyed the ever loving shit out of old school squares in every town they traipsed through. That was the freak. Their names like mountain girl. Cool breeze black mariah got. They called keys. The chief the grateful dead and big brother and the holding company perform the music that mirrored the action is held. The microphone stand so tight. Looked like she was trying to throttle the veins internet at large in her head. Whip from side to side as she and the boys prime the audience concerts of turned on truisms. They desire to be knocked. Socked rock into the throngs gathered at the panhandle that october afternoon. It was a peaceful battlecry and janice was there. Mike she was she was walking. She was sake as she was spreading. The good word to people like richard rodgers and the highway patrolman nebraska and the working class audience mother jews. The scene was a freak show in unfortunately a dangerous moment of things to come of a society. Slipping even some of those at the very epicenter of the whole seismic moment in the greater bay area thought the janice was about to.

Just use the last two minutes so it's off and one hundred percent it goes from there and there's no zero to one hundred so it makes no logic at all. No wonder dodgers john. Simon because it's been twelve minutes but people are all that wonderful solo but is a better time better touch my healthcare and also on a song called stealing that i did really john if by any chance. The original mix on additive mix of vast exist. Why not get released as probably receive of that album. I'd love to the whole world released. Here's another relief. Story steve forbes art. You may know steve forbes. I got a call from steve floorboards manager. Who also happen to be the manager of the first record by producing the red room above the circle that manager net net lice was a manager. Steve forber and he said you know. Steve contract year was epic columbia records. And this producer. I'm not gonna mention. His name is not a courtesy he just got an offer to produce barbra streisand instead. And he's a short me that is. Commitment is the steve. But just in case you available. I said sure. I'd never heard steve sharp. Then i got the call the next day the mid management. I'm a man of my word is. I'm a man of my word so this producer. And so the next day man of his word not to be a man of his word and he went with barbara streisand. And so this guy called me up and said would you produce so steve said i want to do the recording with no spices. No overdubbed no. I was so happy to hear that. Because i love that of honesty in recording. So there we were at a studio in nashville with steve playing ca-car and his monica and singing electric guitar lessons piano player oregon player also blake according to a times a drummer an electric bass player three horns. Three vocalists live in studio fabulous. The engineer jean michel berger did a beautiful job. A beautiful job with it and we went remixed it and he did. A beautiful. Mix was fabulous. So i meet stephen new york city. The master human. Steve comes in with the newest rolling stones album. I don't remember which one it was. But he puts it in the turbulences out into sound like this unsaid. steve That album is wonderful. It is as it is was done. Incrementally the most far instrument by instrument and then squashed with limiter the computer so that everything would be in your face at all times and up at maximum volume. And you wouldn't have the transparency that we worked so hard to get in nashville where you can really feel you. You're in the studio musicians. He said i don't care. I want the those out. So that's the thing that was was released. I took for his credit. Always says he thinks too much you say guests is up too much so i have that original tape. I have and i've been talking over the years. They can't be released release. Can your. there's would love this. Got to remember In the top. He's he has the original in some vault somewhere in the depths of new jersey. Something that's question a quick question. Yes i when. I was listening to the weight on headphones last night. And it has such a monumental majestic sound especially the drums. But but everything great. It's just five instruments insanely right. That has a presence and half the touchy on the tape. The most records from nineteen sixty seven. Don't they just don't sound like it. So what was so great about an all studio to well. I was the engineer on the sure there was. Roy succumb scholley acas. Maybe you're staffing. Johnny us might. Yeah now you know. I am not an engineer. Producers can be engineers are friends wives manages. I am not an engineer. An arranger as a musical region. So i really can you know people ask me what microphone did use this. I don't know who is silver. There's something about the arrangement of that song that will allow things to stand separate together at the same time. It's also leon's voice. Leave voice had to i love that word and also was only only with acoustic guitar rather than again. So that may have something to do with it. When you talking about the mix you're talking about the original dictate. Mix right not the not the remix of several years ago. Not the original but you you have an issue with the more recent mix secretary i call on the unmixed because we assume we worked so hard to mix that thing just to our own personal taste. Sometimes it would be hands on the failures. Pre computer computerization before favors moved by themselves by magic god-like. Hey and these were hands on the thing so the next unmixed loses the beautiful balance between the three voices and features drums to a great degree and disregards the horns pretty much and so i don't know what what the motivation was for that except to sell the same room to us again.

"The chief flying fighter DOT com. Today. A nice wine at the mall. A Little Bit Cooler All the way. On the horizon. The fees and forties. Looking for some red wine. Phones and say we have the other room. Twenty eighteen from. Argentina. Ruma is a project by `less container who's been in Argentina since the eighteen hundreds and baron. Child. Feet of Bernardo fame when I growth in Grand Cru and all those. This is their continuing project, their entry level value priced Mulbah. And it's funny because a lot of times in this price range. Get value priced wines from people who who produce value price wise, and they have a little bit different philosophy. From. These high. Lines. Awesome. It's just different and what's different about this. Is even though. Kits from some of the same vendors more expensive than what they do is they specialize in mile that. And Saban Young, which are two grapes that are well, Dabur nate sub Yang and Bordeaux and Mullebeck used to be before blocks all that but there to. Bordeaux wines or grapes. And they specialize that, and this is from those vineyards scale not maybe the the fancy parts of those vineyards but good solid parts those. But they don't use oak barrels. It's a fermented in stainless steel. That brings out the bright lively fruit and it's a two thousand eighteen of vintage, which means you know. It's it's a drink wine, but it's got a little bit of aging and that aging isn't cement tanks. They're lying tanks you're not getting reaching out whatever's in the some met. And that is something will actually getting more popular like central coast to California and then the. Valley in a place in France. And why that's good for ages. especially. Like this Mullebeck has got. Really rich flavors has got tannin's. Need any more edge to it that Oakwood rain. And the cement tanks. Thick. Enough. Insulate the wind and the need. From variations in temperature outside. He'll stainless steel that serve fairly. Thin stainless steel. Barrels earlier you know are are. Not Thick, they don't get a lot of temperature art. And when you look at. Wine that is being young age. They've put it in sellers where. It's protected from variations and temperatures and humidity. Now, this doesn't feel the steel tank doesn't go seller. Control but it's pretty good. So it actually helps to wine age. It helps deal recover. Without any outside interference with cement this. Sounds Weird maybe at first. But or just start taste, and it's fine and this is a really rich. That's Mullebeck. It's got great flavor you sometimes, we get chocolate stuff going to get that because Joplin the no are going to be here. There's no hope. But you don't Miss It. There's Tana's dusted.

Ilyse Hogue, President of NARAL Pro-Choice America, discusses new book "The Lie That Binds"
"I'm Jim Taylor skinner, and this is the electorate on this episode, have a conversation with the hogue, the president of Nero Pro, choice America, and he joins me to discuss her new book. The lie that binds it's really an incredible book and it chronicles how abortion rights of all from being a non-partisan backburner issue to a central 'cause champion by conservatives in the radical, right. This is really one of those books that I have to read twice. It's that informative. So without further ADO, here's my conversation with Elise. Hogue. leasehold welcome to the cast. Thank you so much. You're. So before we jump into your book, I want us to talk about something because I recently learned that you were from Texas and that really my inches because I'm also from the South I'm from Memphis Tennessee, and I was reading one of your interviews where you'd said that you wanted to leave Texas because Uber afraid that you'd be bored and that was something like totally relate to. Manila it was sort of. Knew that there was a being rolled out there and I wanted to. It be challenged in You don't both my own horizons, but also different people different people think and act and. I am so privileged grateful to have been able to do that. You know I have to admit, and you may relate to this as being from a have A. Of defensiveness when it comes to people bashing Texas, they're such amazing people. They're they're such amazing within their and during such good work, and you can't judge inspired leaders. You have to judge us by Jordan Molly ivins in grammar yards and Janice Joplin for goodness. Sake. Now. There's just and that's true everywhere where there's adversity, there are amazing women trying to make a better future to Tennessee. It's true taxes in needs recognized. That is absolutely true. I FEEL DEFENSIVE ABOUT MEMPHIS TO MEMPHIS. Amazing. You know have Bill Street. Yeah. There's some things that I wanted to get to and that's where I connected with you because I was like, yes, I understand that needs to escape. But yet you know having these strong ties to my hometown It's. US You know and I always say at in calm from a reproductive rights background at came to it, and part of that is my experience in Texas in watching Texans in particularly poor people in taxes in rural people in Texas I'm being the canaries in coalmines of these rearrested policies that use reproductive oppression disenfranchise. So I really love this book because I've read some bit of this history in different books over time, and you just put it together into end. So well, right and I. I think one of the things about the Republican. Party. That happens I think we have these debates in the media when people talk about it as we just accept the Republican. Party. As is right without kind of thinking about how they got here or the illogic of their kind of overarching philosophy because a lot of it doesn't really make sense. Right. But you know when you read your book, the Republican Party today is not the way that it used to be like it's not recognisable from. Prior, to nineteen seventy right you at one Haley. How they kind of cobbled together this coalition of these disaffected smaller groups. You know these Democrats, who weren't happy with the passage of the Civil Rights Act and know some religious groups. So what were some of these initial groups in that coalition? Awkward it was a little bit. The opposite, right that every every political party has factions. There's no question about it, but you know as as the sort of book opens, you do see Jerry Falwell senior, who, subsequently passed and Paul and at small set a really fundamental as they call themselves dominion. It S, which means they believe God gave digging into white men over systems, elliptical, economic social systems, and. Our. Country, whereas before they had to do very much Mansi in short all the sudden is rich move mad. The Women's Liberation Movement is really challenging total control over power systems in the country and they mobilized to political action fighting school desegregation and. It's a long long story. You see throughout the book is that. An establishment GOP, which you still have any conservatives who still had social liberals in fiscal conservatives, they were not finding enough to hang together in related. People who hadn't been voting band goals were building over ten. Maybe we should add up and there was crew rate and they got more and more halt on a constituency within their electoral coalition that increasingly represented a small small action in the country in their views and they. Title, they were making deals with the devil and they. You know what? If anything can prince is that the artifice around abortion which seemed great to that at the time and I'm sure we'll discuss. Because one place where were toweling. Stream minority and they knew they didn't have public pain on their side. So it was a constant balancing act and what ended up happening is these radicals increasingly over to the party with each subsequent election, and trump is the ultimate manifestation of that.
Jared Young Explains Why Kindness, Honesty, & Integrity Are His Top Priorities
"Jared Welcome to the show welcome a dose of leadership. Thanks to be here. Well I'm excited to learn more about employer advantage and really your leadership philosophy. It seems like I'm. Looking at your background man you've you've done a lot of things and now you're the president of employer advantage. Traveling the world working in various branches of government learning multiple language Arabic is that right to get that right you understand. Yeah, Eric my Undergrad is an Arabic. Wow. Well let's start. Let's talk a little bit about how we got to employ advantage. What was the kind of as you're going through school and working what was your dream at the time? I can tell you my dream was not to end up in. Joplin. Missouri. But I know my I guess my my dream candidate evolved. By the time I got through law school I knew I didn't want to be a lawyer and so I had to figure out. What I wanted to do. So I went into corporate law for a little while I was looking for a chance to pivot to the business side of things because I decided that's what I was really interested in. and. Had A a cousin in DC where I was working Who have happened to have a father-in-law that was? Had founded a business along time ago and was looking for some help some young blood to get into the business to. Start with. A succession plan. and. He learned me out to the Midwest and. I guess we haven't looked back. So how long has that been? How long have you been in Missouri five years five years so prior to that, you were working in various branches of government and you're doing it was many. as an attorney as a lot. What was it doing what we doing government? So I worked before law, SCHOOL In the private sector actually in the healthcare it sector but then during law school and after I actually thought. I thought government was what I wanted to go into. That's actually part of the reason I studied Arabic in my Undergrad as well. It's thought government was around I wanted to go but as I got more experience in government i. realized. I didn't think that was going to be for me. and. Why was that? Would you see there that just turned you off to it I think. I worked with a lot of great people and saw a lot of really interesting things but. The the kind of lockstep. Advancement structure of most of the government. Offices wasn't very appealing to me I I saw people that had been there for thirty years and it seemed like if you wanted to get anywhere, you had to be there for thirty years and there's no getting anywhere without putting in your thirty years. there. There's also the factory you know have a pretty large family. We're expecting our child next month and I knew if I was going to support a family of that size. It's Government salary. Yea. I I know I understand the attraction in the allure. I thought about going into government to at one time when I was laid off from American you know. In the lure was kind of a the security, the job security, everything else and. I got to say a lot of consulting work with the government I've been out of the marine, corps and doing this. And it's such a challenge because what I found is that there's There's just this kind of embracing of mediocrity and it's nothing against the people within it. It's just it's it's a culture of mediocrity. I think and I don't know what your thoughts are on that. Again, I don't into government bashing session but well, exactly I that's I. think that's probably what I was trying to say with trying to dance around and be a little diplomatic but I I totally agree I and I think you're right I don't think it's any individual person just as. Houses that it's the it's the whole system is just too big. It's too bureaucratic right and an end. To. It's that too big to fail mentality. They all know that that they're going to have a job they don't have the pressure of trying to turn a profit to kind of motivate them but. I don't know if they're they're tons of fantastic. Working in government and I I admire the work that they do. But with a lot of great intentions, you're right in the. Same reasons that just wasn't for me I needed to be around a little more Spontaneity. In the the fact that if Wanted Faster Pass towards performance in the object objectives that just seemed like it was applaud you know what I mean like a slow applaud. Yeah. Yup totally get it. Very. Cool. So I'm curious to before we start talking about your roles a president here. What live in Jordan for four months? What was what year was that and what was that like? In two, thousand, nine It was awesome. Just incredible experience. You know as part of my. Undergraduate studies studying the Middle East Arabic So I got to go there and really just immersed myself in Jordanian culture. In my Arabic study I had just gotten married the year before. So my wife and I join me and she actually celebrate our first anniversary in Jordan. Wow and just an amazing cultural experience you know when you visit somewhere as a tourist. You see some cool things but you don't really get a good feel for what people really like where the country's really liked but when you live there for a while. We were able to go to church there and and just make friends interact with people in their everyday lives. It was just awesome to. Be Part of a culture this. So completely different from ours you're live two years in Sweden, but Sweden in so many ways this is just a lot like America so it wasn't kind of a full foreign experience, but Jordan was definitely full foreign experience and There were definitely parts of it that weren't as fun. You know there's water rationing. There s he had you know. Limit, your showers and and and just be really careful with your water and we had bedbugs. there. Definitely. Reasons. That we were happy to go home but man, I wouldn't trade the experience for anything such memories of time that

I don't think you close now yet is closed. I WANNA teach us some stuff to have a history lesson history, okay? And seven years ago, I got really excited about this forefathers. Numbers in there so Jackson Beverly Wilga where collectors of vintage photographs and had in their collection a dagger type. Oh you don't say an old photograph taken using a process that involves a silver plate and Mercury Vapor, and his photo was of a young disfigured man. the photograph was believed to be taken in the nineteenth century. The man in the picture was believed that the man had encountered a whales. He was holding Harpoon like object in the image. TIFFANY's face. That was fun. they couple had the image on display in their home for years in December of two thousand and seven, the couple decided to share the image on flicker and titled it a one eyed man with Harpoon super, super creative, so one win was. When did they have it? In their home? Court were the years they had in their home, but they didn't post it till flicker until two thousand seven. Okay, so they decide like a random picture of some random disfigure. Yeah, some people collect mentioned photographs. My Dad is one of those on. This might make him happy. One Flicker user contacted the Combo commenting that the man probably isn't a whaler as he wasn't holding a Harpoon in the picture, was he holding buy outs. Oh, sorry I thought. You said he was holding her. They said it looked like her. so another user saw this picture and said Hey, this might be the only surviving photo of Venus Gauge, not famous gauge. Where's verb? Not Verb just just benny US I. Don't know that name so shown, either. That's why I said. Where's Fergany isn't firm? So, y'all ready to learn about Fini's gauge.

No list of at the age of twenty five Fini's was working as a railroad, foreman and common dish Vermont and on September, thirteenth eighteen, forty eight made a really good attempt at receiving the Darwin Award. Oh my God. Yes, so excited, so phineas worked for the RUTLAND and Burlington railroad company as a form part of his job involved coordinating, blasting out rock to make way for new. New Rail. Lines does part of the job required knowledge in geology and trigonometry, so I have a note to me, saying Insert statement about how trig is as useful of the maths, I will say I really liked. trig choke is super. Useful triggers the most Hallo basic addition. Wouldn't just like OPRAH EMMY BE MORE USEFUL THAN TRADE? Because I never took trig and I'm getting along just fine. Your overcompensating at all. No compensation here I come to terms. Okay, so geology and trigonometry so not only did. They have to be pretty clever, but he also had a handle his crew, who was described as a gang of men who basically needed all the. Since they enjoy things brawling shooting and drinking, they sound like sounds like my. Sounds like the type of people that didn't take trig. had good people skills. Though so is crew liked them to blast the area involved not only defendants have to create schematics aware to drill holes that were a couple inches wide, and a few feet deep, but also had to be able to place them along natural joints and rifts in the rock to make the job easier because why work harder than you have to the cracks just like push it a little harder so i. Like my mental health. Hey? Push it just one step further fine, are we? I completely lost what I was going to save. Thirty Oh. Did He Oh, I was thinking like the he needed to do dousing, but you're talking about like actual cracks in the ground. Yes, we're not looking for water. He's trying to clear out pathways like blowout rock lay lines, not like no crat down, sorry. You bring a witchy friend along. Here is the source of power here. Blow the spot so once.

Joe Walsh Takes on the Trump Cult
"I wanNA start sort of in the beginning with you because I think he your trajectory to where we are today is very compelling and also I think there might be something that people can relate to write our story right. So will you tell us a little bit about how you grew up pretty mundane? I mean a big Old Irish Catholic family of nine kids Dad both passed away within the last couple of years. I Love My mom and dad a pretty lovely boring childhood. I was the middle child of nine. I grew up a loan in the family and I knew when you come from a big family. Elissa you fight for your parents attention and so when I look back a lot of the things I've done in life has been to galvanize people to make people stand up and pay attention about things I care about but I loved coming up in a big family. So what were your interests you know? I always in maybe similar to you from the earliest age. I cared about history. I've always been enamoured with American history. I was watching the other night. The first part of the special on the history channel George Washington. I saw it too is wonderful. I WANNA watch the rest of it. I'm convinced I've always kinda believed in reincarnation. I'm convinced I lived at that time really Olisa. I've been obsessed with the revolutionary period for as long as I can remember really. Yeah so how does that manifest itself in your daily life? Do you get deja booze. Do you get I often and I've often ramped of that period. I've been obsessed with books in movies of that period and it's led to my interest in this country the problems in this country where we are now suavely. My interest in history always led me to politics governance so in high school. What was important to you. Are you an athlete at all? I was I mean I was Mr Baseball Basketball football president my senior class all of that but always board a little bit nice school. I was always thinking beyond high school and then when I was in college I was bored and college and think beyond college so I never really felt like I fit in in those slots and you study in college. I was in English major political science minor interesting. Yeah Yeah so you get out of college. You're still in your hometown. Where'd you get a call? I went to a small school in the middle of Iowa called Grinnell College then I transferred to the University of Iowa graduated there. I took time off. I hopped on a greyhound. Bus came out here to become an actor. Didn't 'cause I was lazy ass and I rode my bicycle. Up and down all over California tended bar and just dreamt a lot then went back to I will finally graduated once the acting bug kind of went away and then I spent time in the city of Chicago after I graduated mostly on the south side of Chicago working with low income black white and brown kids on job training and educational at their educational skills. And you were registered Republican. At this time. I've probably been registered Republican my whole life. I've rarely describe myself as a Republican which is odd because I ran for president as a Republican. I've always considered myself sort of libertarian slash conservative. Don't like the word conservative. But I've always felt an obligation to help people who are not as well off as me. I've never anything that that drive came from. Joplin my mom. My Mom was a servant. She was a teacher. She was a a special education teacher. She loved history as well and she just. She instilled in me at least that that was part of why we were here. A big part of why we were here and that combined with my sort of political ethos which is i. Don't want government doing everything for people. I want US doing more for our fellow. Man has always led me toward the helping professions. It's interesting because I think when you think of Libertarian. You don't think of fellow man helping fellow man you think of like someone you know in a cabin who doesn't over them show all by themselves. Who has you know? I think that if more people understood that the libertarian sort of ethos is that and yeah but I think there's so much that is politically misunderstood right now and I think it feeds into exactly what we're seeing right now with this administration but also it's so interesting to me how we've lost sight of the grey areas in life and I don't know if that's because maybe twitter maybe we have these little short bursts of information and were not able to really see nuance right. Like nuances dead total. So we think of Republicans and we think of Libertarians. And we think of Democrats we think of very specific people void of any nuance right. I mean if you are this you have to be this this this and this. I'm wondering when you started to see that happen. I mean my husband when I first met him was a registered. Republican was he. Yeah he was a register and you know a progressive Republican. I don't know if a progressive Republican exists anymore is that what is that but you got. I mean it's better than a regressive Republican which seems to be the way of the party right now. It's a-list issues everything's broken. I mean just step back. We have a horrible human being in the White House. I mean you and I may differ on a lot of issues almost everybody outside of his crazy supporters understand that we have horrible human being in the White House. How the hell did he get there? I think he got there because our political system is just flat out broken. So why should we take you seriously? And I don't know that you should. I hope you look. Let's just be clear from the outset. I announced about five months ago that this former Republican congressman is going to take on a sitting trump sitting president named trial. Nobody JOE in their right mind should think about doing this. Unless you have a really good reason it's easily the most freaking difficult thing I've ever done as you mentioned. I mean I come from a certain place politically most of the people in that world politically. They loved trump. So I've lost my friends I've lost my supporters. I get threats all the time. It's been difficult. The party has tried to whack me every single day. I'm doing it and I got into joe known it would be difficult many things but I'm not dumb. I knew it would be difficult. I thought it was important. I believe unfit so. It's that message that we've led with. Which is I know who I am. I know this isn't going to be easy but that kind. The White House scares the hell out of me. He should scare everybody. And we've led with that message in everything we do. What is the most broken thing that you feel enabled him to become president about the political system? We go into the social aspect. I think there is a lot though is broken in society that allowed for him. I think especially when you talk to his supporter and I know his supporters. Well because they voted for me and they've listened to me on the radio the last seven years they feel like Washington. Dc doesn't give a fuck about them and hasn't for a long time. Republicans and Democrats. They don't care about me. We got like thirty nine different. Genders now everybody Kerry who they WANNA marry. I got people who don't look like me coming across the border and Washington's not listening and so along comes this asshole this demagogue. Who At least gave them the impression that he's paying

We've had in a while so I'm excited to talk about these phones. So let's start with probably the top story. I think of this year's Oscar race twenty acting nominees. One person of Color Cynthia Revo who stars as Surrey Tubman and Harriet. Yeah I'M NOT GONNA lie was extremely disappointed. When I watched each array and John Show read out the nominees few weeks ago? But I wasn't surprised actually just wrote an an article rotten tomatoes discussing this when you talk about the ninety two years of the history of the academy. There's only been thirty. Five Black Women nominated and twenty one of them have been for playing a slave a maid or woman in abject poverty it is an alarming and slightly depressing trend. I would say in the academy's Tastes And when you have performances from Octavia. CBS Spencer and loose Alfre woodard clemency. Jaylo in four inch heels giving us all she could for Hustler's and Aquafina further for well. It's really really alarming for you to say to yourself that this is where we are at the state of the academy. I'm going to hope that this year. We can have parasite as a moment if it wins. Best picture that we can say. We're moving forward. But again Cynthia being the only nominee it's It's a bit depressing parasite. I think has a legitimate chance to win the best picture. Oscar Oscar Think Bong Jun ho who directed and Co wrote. It could win director as well if it wins. The top prize the first foreign language movie in Academy History to take that prize. That is important in its own right regardless of the fact that none of its actors were nominated for performing in it. Yeah and it's also again a trend unfortunately with the academy there have been six previous best picture. Nominations from Asian cinema where none of the actors were honored with an acting nomination and unfortunately parasite kept with that trend this year here however We keep a track at our wars leaderboard and rotten tomatoes dot com of all of the winds of all of the films that are in the conversation and parasite has dominated with over a hundred in twenty five wins and to give you sort of a relative idea. The next winds is at seventy one. So parasite has been dominating with critics groups and with these these various guilds so it's poised to maybe take home the top prize but it really depends on the academy's taste and what those nine thousand members feel about the film later in the show. We're GONNA talk talk about the best picture race. We're also going to hear from some of the directors of some of the best picture nominees including Greta. Gerwig made little women was not nominated for best director. Sam Mendes from one thousand nine hundred seventeen and Bon John Hoult from parasite. But we'll start this Oscar party with some leading actresses three of the five nominees in this category had add the particular challenge of playing real people on Screen Cynthia Rio sharply staring and Renee Zellweger. Who Plays Judy Garland in Judy Yukon? There's an audience other ways. It hears you sing my mouth driving. It was judy takes place in the late. One thousand nine hundred sixty judy. Garland's career is floundering. She's struggling with sobriety. She goes to England perform at a London nightclub and Joplin one thing that surprised me. was that renee. Zellweger wasn't convinced that she could actually pull off as part. I wish I think is so crazy. That's Texas girls for you as a Texas girl I can say we're like deprecating on our talent and always like underestimate ourselves but she absolutely murdered murdered this role I remember. I woke up right in early at the tyrod film festival to watch. Her sort of embody. Judy Garland for this role and it was so I would say mesmerizing.
New UK government brings change and uncertainty
"Week's UK general election saw. Boris Johnson. Lead the Conservative Party to its biggest victory in over thirty years instantly the value of the pound and UK case stocks jumped now that election excitement has died down. We take a look at what to expect from the new government here to discuss this with me on George Polka political editor and Adam. Sampson had a foster. Let's start with brexit given them get brexit done John was the Tory campaign slogan will the UK believing the E. U. at the end of January. And what will that actually mean George. Well certainly expectation is that person will leave on the thirty first of January and the brexit done slogan Surf Bars Johnson extremely well in the campaign captured. I think the mood of the country that whether you're on the remain all the leave side of the debate. There was a bit of a sense that the three and a half years of Political Guinea since the referendum result how to redrawn an end and he's now gone native seat majority which squirrel allow him to deliver his withdrawal bill and to complete the first stage. And it's important to stress the first stage of Brexit on the thirty first of January then of course becomes much more uncomplicated and the real negotiation which is about the future relationship with future trading relationship between Britain and the EU and some people predict that will be even harder and potentially messier and the first part so when will Britain finally leave the EU. In that case well we legally leave on the thirty first of January but then the question is at at. What point do we leave the so-called transition period the standstill arrangement where effectively Britain remains part the same issue trading system under the European Court of Justice? And all the rest of it until a final final agreement is in place now. Boris Johnson has said this week that he will leave on the thirty first of December. Twenty twenty come. What May and indeed he's GonNa put legislation or claws into his withdrawal bill? The will make illegal him to seek an extension of the transition period beyond December. Twenty twenty now. Lots of people doubt whether a really serious trade deal negotiated in such a short space of time. I suspect if there is a trade deal in place by that point it will be very thin one mainly covering goods mainly covering things tariffs and quotas but not fully fledged future relationship that we've been promised and then the second question is if boss Johnson's determined have this new relationship in place on the first of January twenty twenty one. Is it practically possible to have all the systems in place including a new custom system. New checks new border posts a new immigration system potentially all within the space of twelve months. I think that makes an heroic assumption about the ability of white small businesses to make that kind of big adaptations short space of time. And could this also be a rocky time for British unity. The SMP in Scotland is pushing for a second referendum on Scottish independence and Northern Ireland's highlands position could become more precarious as it becomes the border between the EU and the UK. Will indeed. I mean that's one of the ironies of this whole brexit process. Assessed that in taking out of the European Union is Boris Johnson unst itching the United Kingdom of course Scotland and Northern Ireland both very strongly to remain part of the European Union. The fact that there's a resentment north of the border in Scotland about Brexit has created a situation where forty eighth out of the fifty nine seats in Scotland went to the Scottish National Party which wants a second independence referendum in Scotland. Boris Johnson said no so far. But it doesn't take that much. Imagination to concede that Scotland could become a bit like Catalonia with with a grievance festering people demanding the right to have another say on their future and in the case of Northern Ireland. Is You mentioned. Schoener the deal that Boris Johnson struck will leave Northern Ireland effectively within the economic space of the European Union in the customs union but name and the single market therefore the border between the mainland of Great Britain and Northern Island. For the first time and again you know people in Northern Ireland we'll be looking to Dublin or Brussels to protect their interests. SARS the economy's concerned rather than London. It's obvious obvious. That's unraveling the unions certain extent. Boris Johnson calls himself the Minister of the Union that so tightly gave himself after became prime minister. But that's going to be a big job for him and number ten to try to keep the Union of the UK together. Also the same even European Union now the conservative manifesto sketched out plans for constitutional institutional change. So what differences. Can we expect to see well a slightly strange page forty eight which is quite slight infamy in In politics where it talks about a whole range of constitutional changes whether it's the future of the House of Lords or the relationship between parliament and the Supreme Court which of of course famously became very heavily involved in British politics in the autumn and stop Boris Johnson closing down parliament's at a crucial moment in the brexit process. So there's lots of unspoken unspoken intent there about doing something about changing the system. If you like and Boris Johnson's chief advisor Dominic Cummings is basically a revolutionary who thinks the British. The system is bust. He thinks that the Brexit vote illustrated the distance that a grown up between many parts of the UK left behind person if you like 'em the elites that run the country whether it's in the media or the courts or the politicians and he wants to turn it on its head now part gets in. This mission is an open question. That's going to be a review of constitutional setup up in the country which will take at least a year. It'll be interesting to see how far postal prepared to go down that route. But certainly there's a real energy and almost revolutionary zeal about the people around Boris Johnson number ten and within government. A new business department and changes to foreign aid are on the cards. What are these going to look like well? That's the other thing that's Dominic Cummings. Mister Johnson's advisor wants to do. He previously worked as an adviser in whites-only thinks that basically the British civil services Pretty hopeless he thinks they they tolerate failure. There's lots of blame passing no reward for imaginative thinking and he wants to turn the British system on its head as well and one of the things that traditionally percents proud of his value has a permanent civil service which carries on doing the job. Even when there's a change of government very different of course to the American system where you have a complete sea change in Washington every four years potentially but Dominic Cummings said in the past. He thinks that's civil. Servants should be fight if they do about Joplin generally for life at the moment and he's also talking about a a big change in the number of government departments. So you mentioned that two of the most interesting ones. One is the idea of folding into the Foreign Office the Department of International Development which has a very big budget thirteen in billion pounds burst Johnson. Things could be better deployed inside. The Foreign Office is part of a wider global Britain foreign policy and business policy on the other one is the idea of turning the business department much bigger department covering international trade for example almost like a department of economic affairs pushing this agenda. That boss Johnson has trying finds a push wealth out of the prosper southeast of the UK out to the North and the Midlands. Now if I can turn to you Adam how has the business community reacted into this conservative. Victory sure so business. Confidence was very very subdued for a while for a year and a half in the run-up to this election over brexit over the gridlock. So I I think. The community breathed a collective sigh of relief. I least that Boris Johnson has a decisive victory. He has a majority he can push things through a lot of business. Leaders leaders reason the phrase clarity on policy that kind of thing it also averts a no deal outcome at least in the short term over the next several months. I think that was all seen as as a positive however I think there are many longer term doubts as far as what this is going to look like George. You mentioned earlier that it's very unclear as to whether there's going to be another cliff edge brexit in in a few months from now so I think well people are cautiously optimistic in the business community at the moment. There's a lot of doubts about what this looks like in the long run. So so what will the new government mean for business. Can we expect to see a tidal wave of investment after Brexit as Boris Johnson has promised so kind of said there there may be a short-term boost in investment. That just been like you said pent up. You know in the months of gridlock and over brexit concerns and it may be that boost growth in the short run as well. Maybe over the next few quarters early next year but again there's a lot of doubt as to what exactly the economy looks like go into the end of next year whether we have a rerun of exactly this drama that we saw over the past few months taking place again and there's just the economic forecast is shrouded in doubt at the moment I would say and what has been the reaction to the election in the markets so the mercury actions been quite interesting sterling. Shot up more than two percent after the exit poll on Thursday. They night a really big rise for a currency like the pound. The next day you K- markets were up substantially especially domestic facing stock so homebuilders her certain banks companies. That were at risk of nationalization from Jeremy Corbin's plans but what we've seen after that is a significant fall back in the pound found in fact the pounds now given up all of its gains from after the election outcome over those doubts about what exactly brexit's going to look like and I think specifically this I did there may be a cliff. Edge Breaks Leumi now at the end of two thousand twenty and Just you know these persistent doubts about what Boris Johnson's political plans will be. We still have uncertainty going forward. It looks like it seems like there's deep uncertainty among investors and business executives. Well thanks George and thank you Adam and thank you for

The Care and Feeding of Data Scientists: Recruiting and Hiring Data Scientists
"Hey everyone instead of your regularly scheduled programing with myself a ban This week has special gas Michelangelo. Dr Casino he is the senior the senior director of the Shar vp by my former boss great the scientists ed he and I together Britain and a Riley report that covers a lot of the managerial aspects of do that we thought you would be interested in so Colangelo thank you for joining me again reporter so this week we will talk about how we think about recruiting and interviewing and hiring folks you're listening to a nearby Russians so a little bit sitting here so you have data scientists who you work for you say you're presumably involved or have been involved in recruiting interviewing hiring let's the team I think there's a director and seven folks but I think they're really well have been part is that I started here about two and a half years ago when there was no data science team at all so I I was hired to basically build the team from scratch and so that involved a whole lot of all all this stuff we're about to talk about it tell me a little bit about how you started to break apart into pieces yeah it was really interesting experience because because so as Katie mentioned we worked we worked together before at our previous company our company had its historical origins and the Obama Campaign in two thousand twelve and so we have a lot of like favorable publicity and I would say we didn't have to try very hard to recruit the people like we have a very active top of the funnel We're good luck candidates were just pouring in and so our main job is basically like sifting through those candidates to find the people that were really really good and then convincing them to come come work for us but it wasn't like a demand generation problem When I started here I had almost completely the opposite experience so we had no data science team in place we were known for data science the company as a whole was probably ably like forty or fifty people then there's probably two twenty five now so so we were small and we didn't have a huge name and so the top of our frontal it was like almost completely dry or like the things that were coming into the top of the phone or just sort of garbage and as an asylum topping here so you're gonNA company I do you can shop runner I that would probably be some useful usual context listeners to have yeah so I I started the data science team at shop are Chicago based e commerce company that kind of like to second elevator pitch of what we do that we run across retailer Amazon prime like service for obviously non Amazon Company so we have millions of members and over one hundred retailers are members get free today shipping and returns kind of across that network so my team works with can imagine there's a pretty interesting amount of behavioral data we can collect from across that network and so my team works on building data products on top of all that data cool so yes assembling from the business mental life pretty strong product but you're still Chicago is unhealthy data science teams but I wouldn't say it's the same order that you say that they are worker Boston or some think I think there is healthy competition for what talent is here in my experience so yeah so that's that's a little bit of the environment in which you've found yourself trying to start up this T- yeah the backdrop so actually it was interesting when I started at a shop owner we had just hired a new seat CEO and our headquarters was actually in the bay area and the CEO decided to close the bay area headquarters and move it to Chicago and his which I think is actually born out is that you you know in the bay area the the supply of great engineers great data scientists is quite high but if you're a small fish in a big market and you don't have a name or like you're you're you know you're not on the front page of the newspaper all the time or you're not something like super cool APP that people are using all the time it's very hard to attract really good talent and so his bat was that and we could come to Chicago and get some of the best people in Chicago and actually ended up being in a much better position I think that that's sort of born out but to go back to like the challenge which of hiring the team like a lot of the the issue is that people didn't know who we are and you put job postings out there and you create people how jobs already or they they're on the market for a very short period of time and they're probably just not applying to your job post and so how do you actually go out and recruit and find those most people and I think one of the we talk about a handful of strategies and the report but I essentially like I did two things one was like I drank in insane amounts of coffee like literally anyone that would that would talk to me or anyone that ever sent me an email I wanted to chat I would go and have coffee with them because I think like having network and trying to like build up those connections like matters a lot because I I can tell them a story about like revision about what the team is going to do in in the future that they don't get a job hosting necessarily even if I wrote the job host in Jackie jobless things this is Joplin and it's rare that I see one of the lake really captured I think what it would be like to work somewhere so I I get so much more of an impression flavor from actually the jobs I yeah absolutely so I like head coffees with anyone that would have copy of me I and then the other the other piece was kind of like investing a way to try to get our name out there I guess so one of the things we talked about in the report is like using open source as a tool in your arsenal so actually open source sort of like a silly Jupiter Notebook widget actually very early on in my time here but that got kind of noticed noticed a few places and has hundreds of hub stars and started to get our name out there a little bit and we wrote a couple blog post initially started going to more conferences invents and that actually like slowly started to pay off a little bit so the the first data scientists we hired someone who is I saw was giving a talk at of meet up and a local meet up in town and I sent her an email and I was like hey you're talk like super interesting like would you like to have coffee hiring you're interested and it happened that like she was on the market and she's kind of like ultimately ended up hiring her she was kind of like the foundation of team she's now a manager managing other folks on the team but like a funny thing we one of the other things we talk about the report is Mike is Diversity techniques for recruiting diverse team and and one of the things we mentioned is that large laundry lists of skills in a job posting tend to turn off women and minority candidates more than non women I'm and non minority candidates lots of reasons for that but sort of just a fact and this candidate in particular had seen job hosting and thought she wasn't qualified and didn't apply but then randomly I had center this email and we had coffee and then it turned out she applied and was like amazing so that was just sort of sort of a funny little side story all right but we hired her and then the other person who is our second data scientists with someone who just randomly reach out about coffee and it was like hey I'm dropping out of the PhD program and I'm curious what inch what opportunities are in Chicago we had coffee and ended up hiring her and then slowly kind of built from there her
Talking Tech with Richard Smith
"Tech today with my all time favorite guitar player. Richard Smith to just happens to be in California and really interesting guy because he travels seventy percent of the time and believe it or not have guitar will travel in his car from Nashville, and I'm talking to now in California. And the big question is how does one live with technology in the car? And I think it's called an iphone six fund six or whatever the latest one. I've gone. I find six I means everything only I can pretty much do everything on that. There's a certain there's a few things that having a laptop is is beneficial. I can pretty much do everything including Eddie, my website for the most. Adding certain photographs and send things make it a little easier on the laptop but seven probably seventy percent, sixty seventy or eighty percent of the stuff. I can do there's no laptop in your car. There is one in the back of my guitar case. Most of the time. Yeah. But there's not. Yeah. Yeah. That's always laptop in my car. It's too cumbersome to be traveling. Yeah, I find it so easy to do everything on while you're going down the road while my wife is driving not one I'm driving when she's with me. I can work in the cost. She's not, you know, it's just a heavy just playing YouTube on going through the the motion going through the motions of YouTube or I've got music on it. And so it just makes life easy. I've also go XM serious as well. That's that's a must for the car. You realize that I think so. Yeah, I mean, but sometimes I just don't want to hear anything sometimes. I just want to think my own stuff. What a think for myself instead of listening to somebody else coast. The news list of all of the news channels. Gotta gotta listen to all sides of all of that. And let's paint a picture for people because you're in California right now, you'll be leaving here and driving to Utah, New Mexico and Colorado to give gigs. Okay. So you really are the guy in the car what kind of car is this. We have a Toyota RAV four an icy drove out. I started in Nashville we played the Jerry re tribute show on September fifth went up the car. It's you your tar amp iphone six fund San. And and Mike's sim Mike, see, I may be a PI system. If I think I'm going to need it. Suitcase full of clothes cigar box. Those times off to the gate when you just want to just relax and may be has ago. If that's you'll think handle your bookings on the iphone six everything is done by Email for much. Yeah. Everything done by Email of everyone's oh it pretty much everyone's number eight mile or messenger Facebook messenger. I always a little people on social media that just. It's just so it's such a great time. It's such a great time. Every basically if people know you to the whole house concert thing is a big thing. These days is a lot of people doing that. You didn't have to be venue. You just need a roof and some power, and you do a lot of you do a lot of house concerts. I would say maybe forty percent of the gigs. I mean, I'm doing music shops smoke theaters festivals house, concerts. Workshops like this. Go f- clubs functions on it's just knowing. It's no in people, the the mortgage, you do the more people that know, you the more people, you know, in a certain area where you can just say, hey, any chance of a gig on this date. And if that person count, do you call someone else, the more people, you know, the more full your calendar becomes and then you can be the only reason I'm not working all the time is because I've got dogs at home. I'd never see them on. My wife is on on the road with me some of the time. I'd never say Hillary the so it's you just have to make a balance, and I've got a studio back in Nashville as well fifteen years ago when you were making the drive in driving all over the country compare what it's like today with keeping in touch with you versus what it was like back that didn't have a web. So you just have to know you had to know people you had to send out packages of with physical product and physical print. Just you don't need any of that stuff. These days not need any physical stuff. It's it's information that sent and then people could see you on YouTube, Facebook, all kinds of social media. It's just a much easier a much more independent world. The I think there are a lot more independent more independent artists than ever before. They don't even need independent labels fail. The label that just going to people like disk makers imprinting up CDs or even doing that. Just even those that that's outdated. These days people are just doing everything online. Downloads youtube. I mean, it's you need anything. You just need to know people in one gig leads to another to describe yourself. Now, I'm I guess I come from the Chet Atkins. Jerry Reed mull Travis and then kind of studied went down the Django Reinhardt off a little bit of what Brent's doing Oviously a big influence, the bluegrass guys. I'll I'll play Joplin rags skull Jobling, piano, rags on the guitar a place embark, and I'll play some standards.

Oh, they got you just such Richard Smith guitar, and I should come up check this. There's two or three Richard Smith's, make sure it's the right me by by going to Richard Smith music dot com to start with there'll be pages of maize, you know, which one it is on YouTube, and I've got the coast that will have got the YouTube channel WWW dot YouTube dot com slash Richard Smith music
