"Welcome back. My guest right now is Jared Brock. He's been on the program before to talk about a previous book that he wrote. He has written a new book. This is going to be a little challenging for me, at least. It's titled A God Named Josh. I can't imagine what Jared Brock, the author, means when he writes about a God named Josh. But here's the good news. I get to ask him and you get to listen to his response along with me. Jared, welcome back. Thank you for having me. OK, seriously, the book is called The God Named Josh. Help us. Yeah, so Jesus's real name was not Jesus. That is what we call him in English. But let's back things up. So his name in Hebrew was Yehoshua Ben Yehoseph, which means Joshua, son of Joseph. And there's no big conspiracy. There's no Dan Brown kind of novel about how we ended up with the name Jesus. But we simply went from Yehoshua in Aramaic or in Hebrew to Yeshua in Aramaic, to Jesus in Greek and Latin, to Jesus in English. So if Jesus walked into the room and we called him Jesus, he wouldn't be mad or anything. But if he introduced himself, he would probably say, hi, I'm Josh Josephson. That's I mean, it's interesting because, of course, many of us have heard him described as Yeshua. But it's interesting that today it would be Josh Joshua. And that's obviously why the title of your book is A God Named Josh, which is kind of funny in a way, because it's surprising. But what what possessed you to write a book with this title? I mean, what what is the book in a nutshell? Is it what you call it? Would you call it a biography? I would like I mean, I'm not a professional biographer. I'm a Sunday school teacher in West Wales and I make documentaries. And this book basically started in our kitchen. My wife and I, we were cooking Mexican food and I was tossing beans in lime and chili. And Michelle looked at the beans and kind of wrinkled her nose and said, I wonder how often Jesus farted. And we descended into a fit of giggles. But then we just started talking about Jesus's humanity. Like, how far did he walk? The answer is over 21,000 miles in his life. And what kind of foods did he like? Turns out he never had a potato or a tomato because those were new world fruits and vegetables that he never would have tasted. And so it sort of just led me down this rabbit trail of looking at the human life of Jesus Christ. You know, as Christians, we believe he's he's fully man and fully God. We focus a lot on his divinity, which is obviously important. But I wanted to look at his human side and say, hey, what are we missing? What are his economics? What is politics? Who actually killed him? All these interesting questions. So that's how we ended up with a God named Josh. I mean, that's that is a. It is an extraordinary thing how somehow our default mode is to avoid the humanity of Jesus or certain aspects of the humanity of Jesus, which is itself wrong, heretical. I mean, the idea is, of course, he was as much a human being as you are or I am or anyone is. That's hard for us to process because we know he's also God. We know that. And so we're just we're there's always that tension. And I think what what people do, as I said, by default, is we sort of think, well, he was kind of like Superman. He's kind of like a cartoon figure. We don't understand. No, he really, really genuinely was a human being. And so obviously that's where you go in the book. What? So what do you say in this book, a God named Josh, that we wouldn't have thought of before? OK, well, let's start with what did Jesus look like now? We obviously all know what Jesus looks like. We've seen the paintings before. He is mayonnaise white. He has long, flowing hair, and he wears a big sash and and has a huge beard and a long robe. Now, of course, that's not true at all. Jesus almost certainly didn't look like that. He actually makes fun of people who wear long kind of Greek style togas in scripture. Jesus has never caught in that stole dress. He's always caught in the working man's outfit, which is called a kite on. We know how tall men were in first century Judea at the time. They're between five foot five and five foot seven. We know they had dark hair. They had all the brown skin, they had dark eyes. We have coinage. We have paintings. We have bodies from the time. We generally know what people look like in Jesus's time. What's really interesting about the Bible and all ancient literature is that if the person they're talking about has something special about their looks, they mention it. So, for instance, Samson is strong and Saul is tall and Zacchaeus is short. And, you know, there's a there's an ancient evil king who's voluptuously fat. You know, Socrates, as you know, for running Socrates in the city, Socrates is ugly and bald, and therefore his philosophy must be true, you know, but there's no mention of Jesus's looks at all. He's probably just an average person. So, if that is true, he's probably a lot darker than we imagine. He's definitely not wearing the sash or the long robe. He probably has a much shorter beard, much shorter hair than we see in the pictures. He's just an everyday guy, and he's probably shorter than most of us today, which is kind of crazy to think about. Well, he's God. He doesn't have anything to prove, really. I don't think he wore elevator shoes, I'm pretty sure. So, you know, when you talk about Jesus as a person, as you just did, again, I think we forget that he lived in historical times. In other words, it's not like we're talking about somebody who lived, you know, among cavemen. There's no record. Nobody knows anything. It's Neolithic. It's lost. There is so much specificity. I mean, more I read the scriptures, the more I'm shocked at the specificity. I mean, they're talking about who was the governor and who was the this and who was the that. Tremendous specificity that you can find, you know, particularly in the New Testament. But it is shocking that there are people, some of them atheists, some of them Christians, who try to push Jesus into this kind of mythic world like he's Santa Claus or he's Bigfoot. He's certainly not an actual human being. I completely agree. I think even if you don't believe Jesus is God, we should be teaching him in every philosophy class, every economics class, every politics class. He has things to say that are brilliant, groundbreaking, world shifting on all these topics. What's really interesting in regards to the historicity is one thing that has puzzled people for a long time is who killed Jesus. So, you know, on the surface, the typical answer for most of history has been the Jews, just carte blanche, the Jews, all the Jews killed Jesus. If you want to get more specific, OK, it was the Romans via pilot. But it turns out that there was a very specific crime family who engineered Jesus's assassination. So this idea that the carte blanche Jews killed Jesus, there's actually a name for it. It's Jewish genocide that the Jews killed a deity. And it's based on this person scripture where this family declares essentially a blood oath. They say, let Jesus's blood be on us and on our children. So who is this family? So it turns out the man behind the scenes who is working to execute Christ is a man named Annis Ben Sethi. He is the high priest in Jerusalem. He's bribed his way to high office. After 10 years in power, he gets booted by the Roman emperor and he gets his son in law, Joseph Caiaphas, selected for the high priesthood. And they rule the temple with an iron fist. So he's in charge of the treasury. He gets to collect the tithes. He gets to set the interest rates. He gets to charge more for sacrificial pigeons and doves and sheep. He just rips people off. Jesus actually tells a parable about Annis. It's the parable of Lazarus. And it involves a father and five brothers. Annis rules the Temple Mount for 60 years. After Joseph Caiaphas, he gets five of his sons selected to the high priesthood. And they're horrible. And Jesus decides one day enough is enough. He goes into their temple during Passover and he drives out their booths, these booths from outside the Bible we know are called the booths of the sons of Annis. And the Bible says that from that moment, the high priesthood seeks to kill him. It turns out that where did you get before you continue? Cause this is so fascinating. You said the booths of Annis they're called the booths of the sons of Annis. Yeah. Where, where outside of the Bible do we find that? So we actually, the Annis is mentioned by name four times in scripture and 64 times in fact, in total, his family has mentioned, but we also have a poem about him in the Talmud. There's a ditty about how horrible he is. Uh, he's also found in the works of Josephus and we've got some, the, the Essene or Dead Sea Scrolls make mentions to how wicked and greedy this family is to put you, put it in context, the largest house ever excavated in ancient Israel, 13,000 square feet, inner courtyard built of stone. They believe belonged to Annis. It's called the high priestly house. When Jesus is arrested in the garden of Gethsemane, it's by the temple treasurers and they take him not to Herod, not to Pilate, not to the Praetorium. They take him to the house of Annis. The first of Jesus's five trials is with this dark shadowy crime figure. And it's only after Annis that he goes to the son-in-law Caiaphas. And then he's turned over to the Romans for execution. They need to make money during the Passover so they can re-bribe Pilate to maintain the high priesthood. So it is essential that Jesus gets killed. Now, Annis thinks that he is the power player, that he is pulling the strings, but little does he realize that he is a small player in God's much bigger story that what the So I love the story of Annis. And it's crazy that it's kind of just disappeared from history, but no, the Jews did not kill Jesus. It was one crime family. Well, I mean, it's a little more complicated than that because we're all implicated in killing Jesus. But the point you're making is very important. And we're going to go to a break. We'll be right back with Jared Brock. The book is A God Named Josh. Don't go away.

"It is. And writing for television is very different in many ways from writing a novel. So how did this whole thing come about? How did how did this how did the temperance end up being on a Fox show? How did that whole TV thing come about and get to you? I was approached a number of times and just none of the offers was really right. But then when I met with Hart Hanson and Barry Josephson, our two executive producers, we were just all on the same page. We wanted a character based show. We wanted we didn't want to do another police procedural. We wanted to keep it plausible and as realistic as possible. And we wanted to put humor into the show. I put humor in the books. And that's hard because every book, every episode deals with violent death. So to put humor in really takes a delicate touch. They called us the first crime-ity to be honest. Yeah. All right. But you know, too, working with law enforcement and stuff, there's always kind of a dark sense of humor. You know, you have to have you kind of have to have that to get through a lot of the horrible things that you see. I know I took a lot of teasing over the course of my career. Well, what kind of teasing? Oh, I don't know. I can remember being at an exhumation, digging up a body and all of a sudden, which had been there quite a while, all of a sudden, these bullet casings are in there and I hadn't seen them. And, you know, the cops had tossed them in just to get just a tease. Nothing like destroying the crime scene, is there? There you go. Oh, well, hey. So we also want to, like I said, we want to talk about your latest book. But as you build these things out, how tough has it been to or I shouldn't say how tough. What's your process for keeping it fresh? I love your sense of humor, by the way, too. And by the way, the French inspector that you deal with, you know, in the beginning of the book. Yes, yes. I've run into guys like that, too. And I know Murph has, too, the arrogant, I know better than you. Why is this not solved? You are ruining my weekend. You read your description of him. You read the description of him in the book and then you listen to how he talks. It's like you hate this guy immediately. Yeah, you've done well. He comes through and then on the Charlotte end, there's skinny Slidell and skinny is sort of the southern redneck version. Look, Slidell, who's the Quebecois version. Well, I got to tell you, too, the other thing you scared the hell out of Murph. First of all, your first mistake, I will point out a mistake in the first chapter of your book. You trusted an ex-cop to say, hey, it's all good. Come out onto the water. So that was your first mistake. And Murph, I mean, Murph and I were talking about this. I mean, it's like, hey, you're going to go out. I was kidding him. He's, you know, between narcos and everything else, he should have a yacht out in his back pond and everything. And he's like, I'm not getting after reading the first chapter, he says, I'm not getting on a boat again. Well, they made it. No spoilers. They made it in the book. At the end, we found out about what really happens. And I'm not giving it up here, but I still don't want to go back out on the boat. Yeah. No, the story starts out, the guy that took it in the pants is the guy on the bridge. He's up on the Jacques Cartier bridge and he gets struck by lightning and falls into the river. And Tempe is asked to help retrieve him and identify him. And she finds he has a tattoo and looks it up in the FBI. Well, has it looked up in the FBI tattoo database? And it links to a gang in the Turks and Caicos Islands. So she calls down to the islands and gets a police detective down there who insists on coming to Montreal. And Tempe says, you don't have to do that. We'll send the body. Nope. So she comes to Montreal because she has ulterior motives. She wants to persuade Tempe to go to the Turks and Caicos to help with a serial killer situation. They've got somebody who's grabbing young male tourists, killing them and hacking off their left hand. So the bone hacker. But as she's down there, the FBI becomes involved. It becomes clear that there's cybercrime going on, that someone is hacking into phones and various types of Wi-Fi systems. So it's like, see what I'm doing there? It's like a double play on hacker. It's hacker. Murph, that's a that's a double entendre, you know, so.

"Jury was sitting. Thank you. That's enough. And it wasn't me. And I went when they put up the list of the people you know that would come in. I stood there and I wasn't on that list and it was horrible and a strange man that I saw his thing and I wonder what did he come in? He came in, but I followed him and he never did it. And that was okay. And I went to my grandmother and I cried. But then one in the jury liked me, and he was the head of its theater in a little town in Norway. He asked me to come and I did a frunk and I was immediate success. Because what she says any young girl does understand. Deep down all human beings are really good, which also became a thing for me. And from then on, I did a lot of big performances there. I was the only girl and then I got film offers and the first I played a kind of Norwegian whore, and I was still 18. I was still a virgin, and the director said, well, you're not a virgin. Now you no, no, no, no, no, no, no. So I played this thing and you know a show the little man behind and a little and it was a scandal because of family was so highbrow and that falls in the mountain or which was that. No, it was called young escape. And they all tried to stop with my uncle went down to the head of the cinema at least don't show it, don't show it. And they showed it. And my whole family, all of them, except my mother never talked to me again. They wrote my mother letters saying it's very good that her father is dead. First she's an actress and then she does this and they were confirmation parties and weddings I was never invited. I was horrible. And then they started to like me a little because I became so successful doing all the films and then I was married and then I divorced and then they didn't like me anymore. So I wasn't popular in my family for a long time. Well, let's talk now about you and you mentioned you refer to this. So how did you and Bergman first cross paths? It's almost, I guess, almost exactly 50 years ago. And what was going on in your lives at the time? I had done a movie with bibby Anderson. My best friend in the world, and I went to Stockholm after that, and we were so mates. And on the street, we met ingmar was incredible. It's like in the books and they talked, and then he looked at me and he said, well, I heard about you, would you like to be in a movie that I'm writing now? I thought it was lying. And it was the truth, and I got the script, which was never made, but at that time he was going to do it with baby and me and I had a tiny little part. I was so proud all the newspapers interviewed me in Norway. He was the first foreigner. I couldn't believe it. And then just before we started, we got this letter. He's sick. He's in the hospital. And then Bibi and I went to Poland. And then we went to Czechoslovakia, cried, and everything. And then the embassy got hold of us and said, he suddenly well again, he's been in the hospital, he's written a new script in 14 days, persona, it was called, because according to him, but he lies sometimes. You know, he said there were two pictures of his of us. And why would he have pictures of us when he was so sick he was in the office. So you're here. Oh, the story is. And he said, oh, what I like is what I like this. And then but literally wrote that movie and a month after we were in the studio. And that didn't work so well. He wanted to go to this island, and we went to the island and we made persona and he's written on a picture of the three of us, baby, and ingmar and me where it says the three playing mates. It's so happy. And that's what I remember from that. And that became a sensation. And it changed obviously my career too. Well, I want to obviously talk about the before and after the persona. But first of all, when you two first met, I believe, you were 26 and he was 46. And now I was 25. 25 and 46. So almost twice your age. And I guess I wonder, in light of obviously, on a professional level, it was exciting to work together. But on a personal level, you two also hit it off and so I'm wondering, though, what was it about him that most appealed to you? And what do you think it was about you that most appealed to him? I do not know, obviously, what obviously appealed to me is the movie I had seen the incredible admiration and the way when we were in the beginning of the movie and I would I was very sure I didn't talk so it was good in the persona I played somebody who absolutely didn't talk. And sometimes you know I would read waiting for my time and I would look up and I would look at the camera and there it was just looking at me and can you imagine you were 25 years old and this man is looking at me and he had a brown leather jacket in my one memory of my father is before he died he had a brown leather jacket so 25 and I was romantic to be true is also I knew I couldn't describe persona intellectually at that time. I didn't even understand it. Neither did BB but somehow we were inspired and the fantasy took over our heads didn't take over. And I knew this is really I just knew that the more I got to know him the more I was watching him and seeing him I knew this is about him and I know what he saw. He saw I understood that. And if that hadn't worked, that way that I understood it and that I he gave me trust like he always gives the actors trust and he saw what I was doing in the close ups. He would have continued writing the movies that came for maxed out for a man of Alan josephson for a man because I didn't take over from BP or any of the girls. I took over from the men and I knew that. And we never talked about that, but I knew that. And I know that.

I hope engaging. Amanda knox though says that well mccarthy. If movie wasn't inspired by my story you should probably keep my name out of your mouth every single time you promote it. She says quote. You're not leaving the amanda knox case behind very well if every single review mentions me. You're not leaving them.

I wouldn't suggest for a minute. Your life has been easy in the fallout from what happened. The bigger picture is that the true victim is meredith. Others twitter calling her murderer. They are cursing at her calling her a racist bigot. Basically what you would expect from people trying to talk to into knox. A lot of people are not convinced of her innocence. I'm not going to get into the case because again it would take so long to do this case justice if we're getting into like every little piece of it but more or less. She changed her story like five times and she immediately accused her boss and african man and then the second which was ally and the second person that she accused was an african man from ivory coast and he actually ended up doing prison time for the murder. They found his dna At the scene on her and it sounds like they most likely got the right guy there but a lot of people are wondering if she's racist for lying right off the bat and then i mean let's just be honest. She didn't exactly do herself any favors. I think that her case was really interesting. Just as a whole to.

He died for those of you who aren't aware. He was sentenced to death in california. He committed eight murders between nineteen seventy seven in one thousand. Nine hundred seventy nine and then. He also pled guilty to two murderers in new york. Also in the early to late nineteen seventy s. He was a real absolute freak show. There are many many many many podcast devoted to him. You can look it up online. But he apparently died of natural causes on july twenty fourth had to mention of all right and for number ten guys for my tenth case here and this is something that i want your feedback on and in fact i want you to let us know on facebook twitter or instagram on this episodes posting I'm actually going to read the best replies on the next episode. I'm going to start doing that. And reading user feedback on earn next episode but amanda knox. I know all of you. If you're on twitter or read a lot of like news that you've heard about this so amanda knox who many of you may know was the american student who studied abroad in italy and basically became embroiled in an accused of the brutal murder of her roommate. Lay her housemate. She was held in italy and then was convicted and then was acquitted and now she is back in the united states. She is a very very very public figure. So amanda knox actually recently slammed the upcoming film stillwater. Starring matt damon it's loosely based on her infamous imprisonment in italy. The movie is so based on her case. In fact that tom mccarthy the director of the film says quote there were so many characters around the case that i've really followed pretty closely but really the first thing that i took away from it was what would it be like as an american student to go over to europe for what should be one of the most exciting moments in a young adult life and to find yourself in that tragedy and he has actually brought up. Amanda knox's name in multiple interviews. Almost every single interview. He discusses her case specifically in. Amanda knox's very displeased guys. If you haven't yet. I suggest going to twitter.

"The official vatican team investigated decades and decades and decades of rumors that he was molesting and assaulting young boys and us discussing it's also issues so revolting that the vatican reports dating all the way back to nineteen eighty nine and they never did anything. They never did anything. That's the only moved and did this. Sham investigation when it hit international media so the vatican held a two year investigation that found that bishops cardinals and even the pope downplayed or dismissed multiple reports of sexual misconduct and they actually released the vatican. Release the internal report last year and actually put the lion share like the big proportion of the blame on pope. John paul the second pope. John paul the second appointed mccarrick archbishop of washington dc despite despite the fact knowingly that he was a child predator. Now you may be asking yourself robyn. How can he be charged with a crime that happened in nineteen seventy four. You know we just talked about the weinstein case and the whole statute of limitations thing. Interestingly enough. I'm glad you asked. Because that's because he was a cardinal in massachusetts. He never actually became a resident so he left the state wintom and went to missouri where he currently loves and that officially stopped the clock so we are waiting on him to be extradited. I know he's ninety one years old but he can rot for the rest of his life however short. That may be another like facet of this and other piece of this. That i find really interesting. Is that the catholic church during this rightly during its internal investigations and all that stuff. They've acknowledged that they have made previously undisclosed financial settlements with adults now adults who accused mccarrick of sexual misconduct decades ago. I mean this actually dated his sex abuse cases back to the mid nineteen seventies so again the catholic church even up to the pope every level up to the pope knew that he was raping and molesting children and adults both of them both age ranges and then they paid the victims off but let him continue doing it already so next on the docket is a case that i am absolutely fascinated by legally speaking. It's certainly not something that happens. All that often in one thousand nine hundred five babysitter terry. Makuuchi pleaded no contest to attempted murder for shaking a five month old benjamin dowling so horribly and violently he suffered a brain hemorrhage she was sentenced to and please saddam. Make sure you're sitting for this one. She shook a baby almost to death caused to suffer from a brain hemorrhage and she was sentenced to spending weakens in jail for three months and three years of probation. I cannot benjamin. Dowling did not recover from the injuries that he sustained He's with debilitating mental and physical disabilities throughout his life and he needed twenty four hour around the clock care. Here's the thing benjamin. Dowling just passed away at age. Thirty five and then justice decided to come calling because terry makuuchi was taken into custody at her home in sugarland texas..

"Has been arrested and it's just so senseless and tragic and i don't know if any of you guys have have followed this case or read it but there are some people who you look at them and you just see nothing just cold nothing there no soul starting back at you. Mr jiminez here is one of those people. You just kind of. Look a picture of him and you're like okay. Well that's not exactly surprising. It's just you feel it coming from there is the is the windows to the soul in happier news. This is really tickled my fancy. It really gets me going. Piece of filth and comeback rapist harvey weinstein now. I didn't know that there was exactly a kink that involved watching powerful men who rape and abuse women continuously get what they deserve but alas here we are and apparently it is the thing so weinstein was convicted of rape last year in new york and sentenced to twenty three years in prison. Cool glad to see it love it. But he's now facing eleven. That's one one eleven eleven additional rape related charges in the beverly hills and los angeles areas from five separate women. His attorney attempted to get these charges which include rape forced oral copulation and sexual battery thrown out due to the statute of limitations in california expiring. The judge actually ended up ruling against weinstein on two of those charges. And then ask the prosecutors to amend the sexual battery charge so guys. What this means is that weinstein is going back on trial. He's going back. He's going to go back to trial and this. This is the trial that could put him away until his dying day because he's facing a hundred and forty years in prison and whereas he won't likely receive the full penalty This trial will absolutely be enough to ensure that he dies in prison. But as i mean let's face it even if he died tomorrow it wouldn't even be enough. I'm not even. I don't even feel guilty for saying that. He's what sixty seven now. We've missed a lot of a lot of time. So let's move on from one rapist to another and this was actually pretty historic. former cardinal. Theodore mccarrick has been charged with sexually assaulting a teenage boy during a wedding reception in massachusetts and nineteen seventy four. This is huge news because theodore mckarrick is the first cardinal in the us to ever be criminally charged with sexual crime against a minor and guys. I'm thirty six years old. I'm sitting here and i recall. I hearing about catholic sex abuse within the catholic church. When i was a kid like single digits age single digit age. It has also been a dark gallows humor type of joke for as long as i can remember as well. They even make fun of the catholic church on saturday night. Live over it and i. It's just mindblowing to me is now twenty twenty one and this has been so known about it. Hasn't been a it's been like the hidden open secret. I guess but got so long. It's been going on and just now in twenty twenty one. He's the first cardinal mccarrick faces three counts of indecent assault and battery on a person over fourteen mccarrick is now ninety one years old and interestingly enough he was actually defrocked by pope francis in two thousand nineteen after the vatican..

There's nothing there's no system where one has not been of it so but you know in terms of how macroscopic it is nowhere near the level of small. So you know the the most so there are various definitions of people of all mathematical statements. That will tell you whether something's macroscopic or microscopic and daughter. Technically today about this but a so the best the system would which i think is the most macroscopic. The ones that are based on josephson. Junctions where me you know. The the the simplest example wonder union are using. Our paper is a is a device which is based junctions and car the audit of squid because squid which is basically a loop of superconductor. Where the loop is is interrupted. The just so. It's not a portrait. Do but there's sort of a break in between and break is from junction and and now in this devise the all the electrons. They can either clockwise and his wranglings nuke often crew and peacock five and this is immense number of electrons. So you can about superposition phoenix clockwise. Gone plus anti clockwise and all and this is big enough that that it can be measured with. It's it's it's very very tiny but it's still something that we can measure using fancy hamburgers but yeah yeah so we can measure in the lab.

Purdue Pharma agrees to $270 million settlement in Oklahoma opioid case
"One of the big drug companies at the center of the national opioid crisis. Reached a major settlement today with the state of Oklahoma under the deal announced this afternoon Purdue pharma, and it's owners the Sackler family will pay out two hundred seventy million dollars over several years. The bulk of the money will help create a new center for addiction treatment and research in Tulsa north country. Public radio's Brian man covers opioid litigation for NPR, and he joins me now. Hey, Brian hails. So at this point Purdue pharma faces something like more than a thousand lawsuits across the country. What makes today's settlement? And Oklahoma's so significant right? So Purdue pharma makes us really controversial painkiller Oxycontin. They're drowning in lawsuits. This isn't the first settlement. That company is reached during this big opioid crisis. That it comes in a crucial year at a time. When people are watching to see if this company will start. Cutting deals with states and local governments to limit its legal exposure. So this is a big settlement will be looked at as a potential template for future deals all over the country. So what does this was this deal? Look like, what did Purdue agree to do? The big piece here is Purdue and its owners the Sackler family will endow this new center at Oklahoma state university and the idea is to study opioid addiction and find new ways to treat people. Here's my counter, he's a glaucoma attorney general quite simply we are out of time to deal with this crisis. The money from the settlement will provide significant and substantial funding to the center for wellness and recovery here. Allowing us to focus our attention on what should be our highest priority. Americans struggling with addiction. But the Sackler family and Purdue have endowed other medical facilities and pain treatment centers around the country. Right. So are they doing the same thing? They're already doing as part of this legal settlement. Yeah. It will be interesting to see how people react to this part of the deal. There are some differences. Of course, the Sackler won't have their name above the door at this research facility, like they do at other places where they've donated a lot of cash pretty also has agreed to pay more than twelve million dollars directly to local governments that are struggling to respond to the opioid crisis. And one other thing, that's key. Here's the company has agreed to to really strict new limitations on how they market and sell drugs like their Oxycontin brand in Oklahoma. I understand that produce CO Craig Landau has been talking recently about the possibility of bankruptcy was that even a consideration. In today's settlement. I think it was a big deal. Mike hunter, Mahomes attorney general said point blank that talks with Purdue were very much spurred by these growing questions about the company's future. So. So Oklahoma effectively negotiated here to get to the front of the line to ensure that they'll see some compensation so what's producing about today's settlement. The produce spokesman Bob Josephson Centene PR statements saying this resolves all of Oklahoma's claims against the company. He also included a separate statement from the Sackler family that includes this, quote, we have profound compassion for those who are affected by addiction. But this comes at a time when we've learned a lot of troubling details from internal memos and emails about how hard Sackler family members who were on produce board at the time pushed employees, urging the to sell more of these dangerous opioids to more people at higher doses. This was at a time when tens of thousands of people were dying each year from overdoses on painkillers like Oxycontin now. Just really quickly. There are still some other defendants remaining in this Oklahoma case right trials still set for may. That's right at my counter says he's negotiating with those companies. But if settlements aren't reached he says, he will go to
