"So bono wrote this song after traveling to south america learning about the punish a regime that was quote forcibly disappearing. Children aka killing them The group that bono had been associated with were the mothers of those children or the moderate supply demayo and they would typically take to the streets with pictures of their children and wail at the tops of their lungs for hours with pictures of their children And this is not the first time that i had heard of that organization. Apparently the two most vocal activists of the rock and roll eighties sting and bono had similar experiences with these organizations and were both moved to write songs about it. Sting wrote the song. They dance alone or quick a solo. That was released on his album. Nothing like the sun in nineteen eighty seven and this was song and they are both excellent moving pieces of work. It's no wonder they're not popular but they're important pieces of work on february fifth. Nineteen ninety eight you to actually played the An arena in buenos aires and. They brought the mothers of the disappeared as many of them as they could still find onstage With the pictures of their missing children And after performing the song. The women drape scarves around bono's neck the crowd saying the argentinian national anthem. And it was the first point it was. That was the first time the band had played the song in concert since nineteen eighty seven. Yikes yeah and again. I don't blame on this is this would be a hard song to play of course concert and get the crowd. You know really excited about it. Yeah you gotta play this real down song yeah. I think this is a great ending to this album to. It is kind of a downer song. But it's it's nice. I it's it's it's a good message to go out on. Its this positive.

"I think you just fedex arrowed a whole bunch of our listeners. A because i didn't hear it because they had never heard it before. So if you don't know what i'm talking about the fedex logo if you look at it then e x in fedex in between those two it makes an arrow It subconsciously makes your brain. Think about all kinds of things. Like oh they're moving in there on the go blah blah blah blah. You can't you can't unsee it. I think matthews did that now. I'm never gonna be able to hear those fingers. I love those squeaker. Great though i lay are great. They're they definitely add to the overall sound of this very folk heavy sauces. I love this song so much. It i always have One of my favorite lines. I found about this song when i was researching was wind. Bono said why. Do i sound like a rich man pound notes stuffed into my pockets. When it's supposed to be a song about unemployment turns out. There was a reason. Great i guess the stereo plate reverse effect looking at you. Randy was contributing to the feeling that he was describing so they removed problem solved. No more rich man pound notes. Stephens pockets so this was supposed to be the second single from the record but was shelved in place of still. Haven't found what i'm looking for. Which in hindsight was probably the right call. I would agree although this is a great song in its own right. I absolutely love the so. I would be curious to know if if this had been the second single I wonder if this would be a much more popular song. I think i think it. I think it would have had to be because the rest of the record would have carried. Yeah all all of those things but yet very few people know that song at all. Yeah that's too bad. But if they were in god's country if they were in. Which country is that matthew i. I'm thinking it's america or is it or is it ireland. Maybe it's nicaragua could be either could be ethiopia Is another one of the songs inspired by bonus trips to central america specifically nicaraguan this case to contrast with the lack of political ideas creating created in the united states and the rest of the western world in the lyrics this eventually he did say that he dedicated it to the statue of liberty. Yes which is weird but that bond. Okay he seems like the person who like she's hot shit going on under that toga. It's but it's got a bunch of desert imagery in it as well which leads me to believe it. Probably about america So one of the things about you too is that none of the guys in the band are really great musicians. They're all pretty average. I am so glad you brought that up. Because i was going to say that until the very end. Oh let's talk about it for a second okay you to to me. That is the reason why they are amazing as a band they have they are. They are mediocre musicians absent any of the flow. They're extremely average arms average musicians but they have this huge stage presence and they all seem to be very good people pretentious potentially sure little over the top scher but generally people who want to do good in the world versus a lot of rockstars who turn into themselves. You know what i mean. They go internally and they say. I'm going to start doing this for me. I'm gonna make money for me to get you know the big house in the nice cars and all the shit for me. Yeah i feel like they made it big and said we're going to do this but we're going to actually put this back out there. Yeah we're going to help people with our our our position and our money and our message we're going to actually use it to make the world a better. Yeah and they seem generally to be positive people. Yes so positively you know that brings a synergy to this band. Yes that makes up for the lack of musicianship because the energy level is is raised. And they together. You know together were better. Yeah type situation. And it elevates pun intended their performances. so it's one of the shortest.

"This is such a good song. It totally like a. I'm not sure. I've ever listened this album beginning to end until we started doing this Just you know i. I've heard bits and piece. Obviously the the famous tracks right all the rest of these. I'm sure of heard and bits and pieces but actually sitting down listening to this song. It is is really amazing. And it's it's such a nice slow sad song. But it's not i guess. Melancholy is there a. It's it's sad but it's not like a depressing song. it's it's sort of hopeful described as grim dreamy. There you go. That's a good way to plan. No doubt that was the influence of brian. You know daniel and And the title of the song comes from a conversation. Bono had with his brother when he asked how his business was going. His brother responded with. It's like running the standstill. Ambani's love the line. And he said it was. He thought it was something he said what he thought it might like to be addicted to heroin. So that scott that great harmonica solo at the end by baen. It's definitely one of the more moving a motive songs. It's a great song. There's very few on here. That aren't ripe. Haven't come across one yet. Red hill money red hill mining town. You know the story behind this. I love this song. Do i let you tell all right. So nineteen eighty-four. The national union of mineworkers in the uk declared a strike in response to the british national coal board's decision to close down a large swath of the united kingdom's coal mines which had become unprofitable decision which was supported by the margaret thatcher. Government he may thanks maggie. Do you remember my response Many many years ago in different podcasts that we were recording when asked If i were. I had to sleep with one woman who my answer was. Did you say margaret thatcher margaret thatcher. It's a power thing. Anyways lady the iron lady. She's not fraternity matthew. She's not for turning about turning anyways. The civil unrest created by that dispute And the violent confrontations that took place between trade union picket lines in the united kingdoms police forces. It was one of the most dividing and bitter conflicts in britain in the twentieth century It's social and economic impacts Still affect the working class to this day And it basically destroyed coal mining communities in wales the english midlands In the north up in scotland is just your basic run the mill rock song topic. You know pretty much Be the this song. The lyrics from it were inspired by the events. Might sir i i. I was totally out of breath. So my favorite Lyrical part of this song is the bridge. We scorched the earth. Set fire to the skyway stoop so stoop so low to reach so high. Like i said he is the master at painting those visuals. But that's what makes the song musically and while the song is by itself excellent the songs made by one simple sound the sound of edges fingers sliding up and down his strings. That make it squeak. Pretty sure my wife would be super annoyed by that. Sound as soon as i pointed out but.

"But You wanna talk about the cover so Designed by steve averill Who is an irish graphic artist designer art director and former punk rock vocalist weirdly enough for ireland's first punk rock band called the radiators from space which is they are not great novas several They're not a great punk band. It's not great. It's not great but they were first so Admiral also attended mount temple comprehensive school Which is where all four members of you to also went to school. So he's known them for a very long time and he is actually the one who suggested list of names from which the band would pick the name you to be album. Sleeve was based on youtube requests to pick the records imagery and cinematic locations out in the desert. And since the album's working titles were the desert songs. And the to america's initial concept for the sleeve was to represent where the desert met civilization The group decided early in the creative process to photograph in the us versus ireland or europe which they had done for all their previous albums. Photography was by anton corbin Who spoke about inter depeche mode episode and earlier in this episode and who is the I guess just creative director behind all the visual output of both bands pretty much. yeah. I swear to god. There was another term there but whatever creative director that were creative director works over several days. In december nineteen eighty-six the band with avalon corbin traveled around the mojave desert for photo. Shoot on the evening of the first day of shooting. Corbin told the band about joshua trees hardy and twisted plants in the desert of the southwestern eunice. Us and suggested they use a picture of one of them for the album. Saga on on my front. I got one of my all right you. Do you have a pretty good astronaut to weirdly. Enough Boehner was so pleased to discover that the planes had actually been named by mormon settlers after the old testament. Prophet joshua as the trees shapes reminded the settlers of joshua raising his hands in prayer. Which matthew and. I are both now doing all of you can see. It could have not videoing this one. It looks like this. You're going to make sure it the next day. Apparently bano woke up and then declared that the album would be the joshua tree probably in a very very way came down and he had his glasses on. Everybody else was just eating like a continental breakfast. Sunglasses shitty hotel. He stood in just like a perfect lighting situation. Our light coming in he took off his glasses and just looked at them and it was like to call the album. The joe tree and then walked away and then put the glasses back on her slow and walked out. And everybody's like do you want a bagel clayton's like what the fuck was that. Do you want. Do you want a breakfast on our man. No no breakfast now. I gotta tell. I'll come back to. I gotta tell you my favorite bano story. I know everybody's heard this one. I'm gonna tell it right now right now so i believe it was on the tour for the joshua tree. They were performing in scotland. And everybody's heard this story. But i love this story and towards the middle of the song. Bono was clapping his hands and he started to clap his hands over his head and he said every time i clap. My hands child in africa dies and some scottish fan from the back of the auditorium yelled. Stop traveling your hands. you can't just. It is such a good story. I don't know whether it's actually true or not. I have heard that same story in some variation other probably Hundred time okay. That's that's a funny story. It's one of my favorite bono's that's a great story scottish. 'cause it's one of those moments where the whole arena dead dead quiet and he's clapping his hands kayla people of retail. Clap my hands. A child dr in africa and then just back. Perfect timing just boom. That's awesome. I love that one but yeah. That's a great story right so home. It's like that kyle. That had just rate chef's kiss so anyways. Bonna says recall on the album. The joshua tree and later on that same trip they found a loan joshua tree near darwin california gender. Being the one yeah. It's the one that appears on the album cover and throughout the artwork Sadly that tree fell down in two thousand still popular tourist spot. this there's a plaque there in fact that says that has been placed by fans. the says Have you found what you're looking for a dead tree right. it's a it's a jasper truth. Ultimately though the cover ended up being a shot of the group at zabriskie point while an image of them with the tree the joshua tree appears on the back. The center gable has an image of The entire band with a joshua tree in the middle zabriskie points in death valley national park. Yes there have been there. I have been there. Yeah is fabulous. It is very bizarre and breezy. Point is so weird dead in weird but it's cool so one other interesting thing about this album cover. Cds were fairly new at the time still And so the decision was made to try different cover images for each format of the album so the original cd cover has a very blurry distorted photo of the band on it while the cassette has a different photo but much clearer And later after they determined that kind of wasn't a great look for it so later on all of them used the artwork from the l. p. on the cd emi cassette cover. I have A bunch of lp's right here in front of you. That are that are from this record. See oh yeah it. Is blurry son of a bitch producer. Randy actually somewhat accidentally that. Nobody knows sometimes on ought to blurry on the cover of the albums. Pretty pretentious boob producer. Randy a- has a collection of Albums narrates those are single. Single sense But it's all the singles that were released for The joshua tree doesn't know how it got him. They just showed up at his front door to door. one day. Better stories like did you get him. I don't know they just showed up with stuff like that. I wish i didn't get junk mail. I wish i got that right now. Should we take a quick brief pause. Yeah let's take a break and then come back and do the track by track. Sounds good. he's also going to.

"I suggest to go listen to a song called the waiting room on. Genesis is nineteen seventy four album lamb. Lies down on broadway clicks and beeps and whistles and absurdity pepper that song and their production is listed in the credits as inositol vacation utilizing. Brian knows surname as a verb. It's the strangest thing on an already strange record but go check it out so they set to work on the next album. That would become the unforgettable fire because this episode is in about that record. I'm not gonna go into too much. But it was weird for them which may be exactly what they wanted. It's much more atmospheric The style of you know forced bano to do things. He wasn't really comfortable with namely leaving lyrics for songs mostly incomplete. He has always said that one of his biggest regrets was leaving. A pride in the name of love unfinished but e-e-e-e-no really pushed a near improvisation of of lyrics. Yeah the departure certainly didn't hurt. They're standing or the commercial performance of the record at hit number twelve on the billboard. Two hundred cells this sold millions of copies. And then this record so after taking some time off and recording short e and a live album called wide awake in america. Go ahead also between live aid off forgot about light thirteenth. Nineteen eighty-five which a lot of people say is the point where you to went from being a big man to being a really big band i because you to seventy two thousand fans in wembley stadium at this huge event one point five billion people worldwide right watching live aid and led zeppelin and shit the bed rate so bano dancing and that's the performance where he gets down to dances with the lady in the crowd. Yeah and there's the famous video that was played over and over on youtube are not too on. Mtv would have been played over over unusual over but made them huge huge stars and their last album. The unforgettable fire not what a lot of people were expecting correct and so he suddenly had one point. Five billion people clamoring for something. We'll start taking them. I don't know people start taking a different look. Exactly i forgot all about that. I can't believe you forgot about live i did. I lived through it. I watched it. Well that's weird. That's where i was a one year old. When show happened so anyway so they released an ep called wide awake in america and they were set to start working on this record in january of nineteen eighty six They would eventually take almost a full year. To record the album pausing twice for a couple of bottles now fairly commonplace humanitarian trips. They decided that they wanted to take a much Make a much more direct sounding record with normal ish song structures less experimentation and a little louder sound so that change coupled with the lyrical move to painting an almost mythical america would result in an album that was in direct contrast to almost all other popular music at the time. Oh yeah as usual kyle. Do you have the vitals for this particular record. I do released march nineteen eighty-seven Like you said earlier produced by daniela. Ma lin wa and brian eno engineered by mark. Flood ellis ancient out. Tim again marking the first time he had worked with u. Two album was received with a lot of critical acclaim when it came out where have fled. Show up before when we were talking about it. Was it depeche mode. I think it was depeche mode that flood produced. U2 and depeche mode damn sorry engineered to depeche mode. And i can't think of his name. Anton corbin corbin is the art director director. There's another term for it. And i got it later in my notes could get to it. He's the anything visual that depeche mode or to create goes chun channels through him visual visual. Calm the visual fancy pants. Visual faint spits that's the term technical term but it did shoot the number one spot in over twenty countries worldwide. Really yeah In the uk received platinum certification. Forty eight hours after release and sold over two hundred and thirty five thousand copies in the first week a lot. That's a lot for the uk spent nine consecutive weeks at number one in the us with or without you. And i still found what i'm looking for. We're both number one hits in the. Us youtube became the fourth rock band. Ever to be featured on the cover of time magazine because of this album And this album received four grammy nominations and at one album of the year and best rock performance by duo or group with vocals It would also go on to become one of the best selling albums of all time. Twenty five million copies certified sold. That is ally copies so for a lot of people me included. It's a transformational record so for me. One thousand nine hundred seven was a year that exploded the music scene for me. Personally i was a music fan before that of many genres but something happened that year. I looked at the list of the best albums of nineteen eighty-seven and it's a little crazy. Michael jackson's bad was released. In eighty seven grade album deaf leopards hysteria. A fantastic album guns and roses appetite for destruction came out the year before but got popular this year. Deaf leopards always said that Licensed to ill. By the beastie boys sign of the times by prince. Oh white snakes. Whitesnake album rest in peace. Tony contain countless other massive records. And of course this one. It was the first summer that i was allowed to go to concerts with people other than my older brother. Oh cool so. I could be more selective about the shows. I wanted to see I could go to the monsters of rock show or i could go see whitesnake deaf leopard and g. Nrt castle in charlevoix. If i wanted which hit. And i did. And while that offered so many great experiences to the music that i loved it helped also helped quicken my slide into poor decision making but it was still fantastic So for me. I was never a youtube fan so to speak. I like some of the videos and some of the songs were just okay to my young years. The guitar while interesting was kind of plane and bonds voice always seemed to be straining for something pleading with me to listen to his cause. Whatever that happened to be. So i wasn't crazy about by the summer of eighty seven. I had heard the hits and was familiar with them because as usual they were in heavy rotation on mtv so we saw them constantly They were good songs. But i really didn't dig much deeper than that. Because i was currently obsessed with hair metal and the fact that my other favorite band meridian had just released the first album since misplaced childhood. So i was wearing that tape out and not really paying attention so i just finished my freshman year vice school and begun. The annual trek of moving up north in michigan got michigan fans. You know what. I'm talking about moved up north in michigan to our newly finished college Cottage on lake huron just outside the tourist town of mackinaw city. Everybody knows My parents had required that i would begin. My life in the workforce this summer and i had secured a position at the newly renovated and reopened old mill. Creek state park. Ooh it featured a completely reconstructed water powered sawmill. On several ongoing. Archaeological digs on site. So i worked at the snack bar and would make several lifelong friends at that establishment and one of the simple joys of the job was the stereo that we had in the kitchen and we all took turns bringing in our favorite tapes and intended to make the day. Go faster yeah This is when i was exposed fully to the joshua tree. Jason anderson had brought it in and i was transfixed by the cinematic quality of the entire record. Because i'd heard the hits. But i hadn't heard the whole thing as a package and i wanted to hear it every day. In contrast to what. I had been listening to at the time. It was so simple and a little bare but it spoke to me and besides the hits so many of the other songs on here have become so important to me and transformational. So it's a transplant. It's transformational record for a lot of us and we're going to talk.

"Trees possess an otherworldly charm. It's as though they share a perpetual hope of embracing the heavens or catching whatever may fall in their direction. It is said that settlers who crossed the mojave desert in the eighteen hundreds named the trees after the biblical figure joshua who raised his hands up to the sky in prayer. But what most people don't realize. Is that joshua. Trees aren't actually.

Interview With Robert Livingston

"How you doing. I'm doing good doctor livingston. Are you bummed. That if you google your name you're going to get one of the fathers of the constitution right or one of these early founding fathers taking all the real estate yes yeah this ranch of being named dax. There's just not a bunch out there right now your christian name it is. It is yeah. My mom and dad had read a book in the lead character's name was dax. And let's go for it where you from originally. So i was born in lexington kentucky and that's where i spent most of my time but i've lived in six states in four foreign countries. So do you have a favorite my favorite place to visit his turkey. Eastern bowl is my favorite city in the world really has the oslo balance of chaos and order if you will oh okay good. I need you to drill down on the order. Because when i look at it looks very bright. Very frenetic very exciting. And i'm a little bit like that's seems maybe too chaotic. There's a method to the madness because there are places. I've been that are chaotic. They're just chaos deal with it but turkey just seems chaotic like this. Is it comparable to any other form or european country or is it its own thing and that's why you love it. It's its own thing. But i would say it's most comparable to spain. I don't know if you've been disowned ensuring people go out to eat restaurants. Don't open before nine o'clock in the party starts at one. Am and it goes to eight in the morning and spain has a different rhythm. And i think that's the most similar country to turkey and its mediterranean so similarities in the cuisine fish a lot of oil you know and then a crazy history. One of the most historical places you could visit. And that's what i like about it too. So you just hit the number one criteria for whether i like cities or don't and that is rhythm so i'll be places and i'm like yeah it's beautiful. That's a big tall building. That's got all the accoutrements of a great city. But there's just no rhythm happening here and then conversely you go down to austin texas. They don't have a ton to look at. And i'm like oh i can feel the rhythm all around me exactly now. How did you end up at harvard. Like most things in life. It had something to do with my network. So i was in england at the time because i had accepted a position because again our wanderers case. You can't tell i. Don't mind packing up and going to some exotic place. And i got an offer to take over as head of organizational behavior department at the university of sussex and i had my own center and when i was there at the center i discovered my real passion. I like to say. I transitioned from being a gardener to being a florist. When i was just a straight researcher i had my hands in the dirt. Cultivating blooms if you will. And then. when. I was head of the centre. I interacted with metropolitan police. The nhl the national healthcare service all these organizations to sort of give away my flowers if you will and so. I got into the florist business. Like how do you arrange these flowers into the perfect bouquet to give it to people at weddings. Because what's the point staying in a greenhouse if no one ever sees the beauty of your flowers and so you know when i was in england i discovered the passion of sort of giving away the science and then harvard. You know i was giving a talk. And they said well. You know we're holding company of entrepreneurs will let you come here and do whatever you wanna do if you don't want publish anymore will let you be a practitioner. But an academic at the same time and i was like really because most places aren't set up you know. Harvard makes its own rules. So i sort of took on this position to be an academic practitioner which led to this book that we're going to talk about which is sort of trying to distill. The science synthesize it assembly like a bouquet into something that people can digest and use to make profound sustainable change around racism. So that's like my purpose in life. Now where did you get your doctor. Degree because lexington kentucky and then ending up england emceeing already. You're privy to to dramatically different racial structures. And i wonder where you went to college if you maybe even a third and that somehow helps you on your journey just to have witnessed all this stuff firsthand. I went from coast to coast to coast and into the mid west. So basically i started my undergrad tulane university in. I did a study abroad in spain. Which is how. I came to know. Spain fell in love with spain. And i majored in spanish. That was one of my things. And then i went to. Ucla started at the gulf of mexico. Coast number one went to california. Ucla that was number two. And i was getting a phd in romance language and linguistics. So something completely unrelated. But i was looking at themes of oppression in latin american literature and colonialism. So i always been interested in that. In undergrad i did the thesis on a comparative study of racism in brazil and the united states but long story short i was hiking in joshua tree. And there was a psychology student. Who said you know you're doing really cool research. Did you know you could do this in the real world. And i was like no. There's a field where you can actually study racism and discrimination. She's like yeah you know. Why don't you come in audit a class. And that was the beginning of the end. So i left that program. I got a master's. I was a heroin from impeach d. But decided to start all over again in social psychology. So i started at yale. Struggled from coast to coast to coast and my professor at ucla said. Don't go to yale because i got into princeton yale. He said go to ohio state. That's like the best program in the country in what you're doing and as a phd student or go to programs not schools. And i didn't think. I could live in columbus ohio so i went to yale and then i was like you know what i can't live in new haven connecticut so the professor at ohio state would you guys take me and fortunately i had my own funding because i wanted. Nsf fellowship. so. I was able to export that i went to ohio state and worked with one of the top people in the field maryland brewer. Who's like the godmother of social identity.

"joshua tree" Discussed on Locations Unknown

"Joshua tree national park is part of riverside and san bernardino county california. This is in the southern portion of county california and was originally declared national monument in nineteen thirty. Six joshua tree was redesignated as national park in nineteen ninety four when the us congress passed the california desert protection act nine established campgrounds exist in the park to have water and flush toilets can be reserved others are first-come-first-served by patrons backcountry. Camping is permitted with very few regulations. Now as far as hiking goes there are several hiking trails within the park. Many of which can be accessible from a campground or road shorter trails. Such as the one mile hike through hidden valley offer a chance to view the beauty of the park without straying. Too far into the desert and mike. We've covered joshua tree three times. So far i remember i. I think it's three times. And i think in all three times it made it very clear. How important is not to stray into the desert. Because it's there and that's where they run into a lot of issues so for a park with short trails that are well designated. There are people that die. Go missing and have some issues there so it is. It is one of the more dangerous than we've covered based on just the stories referred. Yes so there is a section of the california riding and hiking trail that meanders for about thirty five miles or fifty six kilometers through the western side of the park. So the types of things you'd want to bring when hiking water food layers of clothing sun protection first aid kit sturdy dirty shoes map and a compass pocket knife or multi tool flashlight headlamp and then an emergency shelter or blanket. In case you end up getting stuck out there and have to survive the night. And i do want to specify too because i think a lot of people think desert hot short sleeves in shorts is very important that i mean i i mean i'm not gonna tell people what to wear but i always wear pants in long sleeves or have them available in high heat desert. Yeah it's interesting. I always wondered growing up. Why cowboys in movies and tv shows were long shirts and pants out in the desert and after doing desert hiking i understand why because during the day it helps you not get sunburned and at night. It keeps you warm. Yeah you'll the sun. If anyone if going to the beach in knows how draining the sun can be yeah now now at on miles of hiking and dehydration too that you want to actually cover your skin. It's going to help a lot more than simply just wearing sunscreen and walking out into the sunlight especially in the desert so just just a little bit. Yeah and this list is pretty generic. stuff you probably want to bring on. Every haiku gone out the country But i i know we do get comments from people about how they do like hearing the aspect of kind of how to operate in the back country safely so i think it's very important even if even if you're just doing a day hike that you have these items with you in case something happens where you're stuck out there for overnight or hopefully not longer than that. Yeah i think a lot it gets lost sometimes for the things that we take Because we've been doing it so long we don't think about. There's there's the general tools but there are people that don't hike backpack. That might not not bring some of those things so yeah it's pretty. It's pretty good stuff. So amount of visitors per year. Joshua tree sees almost three million visitors. Well at least in two thousand nineteen obviously this last year. I think all the numbers going to be down significantly for obvious reasons the so just over. Four million people live in the area so they see about a million people shy of of how many people live in the areas visitors from other places so it is a very popular park. Just a couple of interesting facts about the area from the eighteen sixties through the nineteen forties. Miners were roughly three hundred pit. Mines the most successful was the last horse. Mine which produced gold and silver worth about five million in today's currency mormon. Pioneers were more impressed by the trees. They thought the limbs of the joshua tree resembled the upstretched arms of joshua leading them to the promised land and the trees name is thought to have come from early. Explorer john fremont describe joshua tree is the most repulsive tree in the vegetable kingdom. That's hilarious 'cause i could totally see both sides like the mormons who are looking at it from like a holy aspect in seeing how beautiful it was. John freeman disgusting. It's all of the beholder. I guess it is more than five hundred and fifty thousand acres of joshua national park parks. Nearly eight hundred thousand acres are designated as wilderness. A lot of it is just open sprawling desert so an indepth descriptions of features As we said it's nearly eight hundred thousand acres the exact sizes seven hundred ninety thousand six hundred and thirty six acres and that is an area slightly larger than the state of rhode island. Give you an idea of how big this park is. The climate is desert climate consisting of two desserts. Who's ecosystems are determined by elevation. You of the higher mojave desert and the lower colorado desert. The mojave desert is an arid rain shadow desert that driest desert in north america. It's boundaries are generally noted by the presence of joshua trees so if you're not familiar with the rain shadow is it's the because of the way the rocky mountains work when rain clouds that would normally come over and rain on this area. They basically get pushed up in the rain on the eastern side of the rockies which leaves the western side of the rockies completely dry and then it becomes the desert so the park's oldest rocks are roughly one point seven billion years old. The highest point is quail mountain at five thousand one hundred and eighty three feet. Lowest point is down to just nine hundred. Thirty four feet at pinto wells. Now the types of danger that are present in regards to animals they have nineteen different types of lizards twenty six different species of snakes. Some of them. That are venomous giant hairy scorpion. Which has a sting. That's similar to a wasp. Sting sounds terrifying. Yeah i've been bitten. I've been stung by a scorpion. That small. I don't want to know what the small ones are usually poisonous. I got lucky. I didn't get bit by a poisonous one but the larger they are they say the safer they are as far as venom goes which. I don't wanna be around any of them. No they do have tarantulas. They're shy noted. The shy of the bite is no worse than beating. Also they do have desert bighorn sheep. That can be somewhat aggressive. I'm sure you've seen videos of them ramming each other. They do have black bears. Kangaroo rats coyotes foxes. They do have bob cats in mountain lions. There is a mojave desert tortoise. That i'm sure you do not have to be worried about just other. Basic animals like squirrels and birds. That are in the area so of all the things even with animals included as far as the dangerous. I think exposures the worst one. Would you not agree. I would absolutely agree. I think you know. Maybe i've we've almost been bit bitten by snakes on trails. But oh yeah. Yeah but he definitely exposure Especially depending on what time of the year. You're hiking You know heat in sun exposure will be You know pretty.

Inland West Coast Roadtrips

"If, you're ready for a memorable road trip where there's more to explore the freeway rest stops Chandler O'Leary wants to take you up the US west coast. She joined us a few months ago with tips for driving the Pacific. Coast highway from San Diego to big Sur, the redwoods and the Pacific northwest rainforest. She's back to recommend a few of the inland highlights from the desert playground palm springs through the orchards. California's Central Valley, old western Sacramento, and all the way up to my home turf around Seattle the detailed in her book the Best Post, a road trip Alice Chandler welcome back. Thank you for having me. So we talked about the coastal route before now we're GonNa talk about the inland. Route make a case for not taking the coastal route because I would think everybody wants to go up the coast, but you make the inland sound pretty good. I feel like if you like your vintage, Americana this the road trip for you and yeah, you're not gonna see the coasts until you get all the way up to Washington but if you're really into things like palm springs and mid, century architecture old neon signs, a roadside attractions, you're going to get tons of that on this route. I love roadside attractions, publicity stunts from fifty of your. What are few of those that come to mind because I just think they're so funky. The giant oranges that used to be Oliver California and there's a couple of them left and they were they to be drink stands for you know when you were thirsty on the road, you get fresh California orange juice right and they're still a couple of them left along old either farm. There's farm country all the way along the way absolutely all three states. So we're going sixteen hundred miles and apparently it's the old isn't isn't like the highway ninety nine is of it is yeah and in California highway. Ninety nine mostly is still intact and it's even a freeway in some places, but once you get into Oregon and Washington because of the mountains, it starts getting a little bit tricky kind of pick. Cherry pick sections of the old road and then connect with I five. Yes. It's just like route sixty six how it's kind of been swallowed up by interstate in places like five is it's sort of the enemy on the other hand. It's practical because he gets you from A to B in a hurry. Yeah. What's your philosophy you're gonna go from going basically from San Diego to Bellingham Right What's your philosophy on the balance between I five in the old roads I think you wanna use I five when you WanNa, make good time and take the old rose if you wanna have a good time. That's kind of how I look at it good time or have a good time. That's good. So let's talk about California first of all New Mexico on one side of the border and collection collects. It collects co is on the or is on the California side and Mexico on the Mexico side. So that's where a route starts are these kind of sister towns in away or are unfortunately there's a big old wall separate him so you Or now you have to go through the big international the big national checkpoint because I did that between San Diego and Tijuana was easy just walk across I think right now that's not the same as it used to be, but it may be again I mean who who knows what we're starting in Calexico then What's the flavor of collects goes? That's just a springboard or anything to do there. It's a sleepy small town and but it's kind of you kind of get the flavor of where you're starting and you're going to start out in the low desert. You're below sea level here that's below civil come into palm springs. A waste. It is palm springs to us. Palm Springs is is kind of Wacky. It got big in the nineteen fifties. So there's a lot of great mid century architecture there, but it's very glamorous. It's very glitzy. There's a lot of designers their fashion show was movie stars that doesn't retirement communities to. snowbirds it's kind of this weird mix of college spring breakers and snowbirds. Okay. So you put that in your checklist and then some I know in your book, you talk about a lot of worthy detours you know in one of your favorites would be Joshua Tree National Park. Yes. Joshua tree is stunning and Joshua tree trees actually the high desert. So it's above palm springs at altitude. So it has a completely different desert climate different plants, different animals. So Joshua Tree is one of these cartoon book yeah. Of Justice Joshua Tree is these classic kind of quintessential cactus Yes. Yes. So what do you do in Joshua Tree National Park Jessica cactus there's a great hikes. There's actually only those cactus in one small part of the park is an enormous park. So there's different bombs great rock formations they are beautiful scenery and

Comets, Night Sky, and More

"So this comic comment Neil wise really has been a delight I mean I. Don't think people really knew about it until March and then suddenly. Now, they're saying. This is a very visible comment. In fact, in some instances, you can see it with the naked eye, and certainly can see it with Nike and our cameras will have no problem seen at all. If we have good conditions, and so I'm pretty excited about this now. Up until this point up until really today where I live in California. You had to get up in the wee hours of the morning. to photograph which I don't mind I I. Mean I'm an Early Guy, I get up pretty early, but when I read that when we get to you know the thirteenth and the fourteenth. And the fifteenth, of July then we can start to see it above the northern horizon not too far above five to ten degrees depending on where you are above the northern horizon. In the evening. The evening which I really like because you know I, get up in the morning I I tend to do my work and do all that sort of stuff and I can do all of that I can do a full day's work. Have everything ready to go and then celebrate in the evening? Maybe get out there a little early do a little twilight photography, which is always fun right? Maybe shoot the comet if I can get a good anglong and get a good view of it, and then just keep hanging out and see what else I find. You can get a good shot of the Milky Way. So I'm pretty jazzed about this because I have to tell you. I can't be the only person thinking Oh. My God I can't take another picture of the cat or the walk. I do every day or you know. This routine that I mean the Rut. That I am in during shelter in place in terms of the physical out, there is about six feet deep right now, walking into so much I'm getting a lot done inside and being productive and doing all that stuff. That's great work. You know I I've been disciplined and focused and productive. Yeah, but in terms of the stuff that I really like in terms of getting out there and mixing it up in the city, doing some street, photography, or traveling or even going out to eat. You know all that kind of stuff. No. Hasn't been any of it and I really want to take a picture of something different than what I see every day and I think this. This is a good opportunity I don't even have to go very far. I'm scanning out some locations tomorrow. Night's GonNa. Be My first night. Actually tonight is going to be my first night. Because as you're listening to this, it's Tuesday yes. So I mean right now. It's Monday for me. That's you know there's my head right there. Tomorrow, Night's GonNa be my first night, and then if it doesn't go as well as I want, or if I learned some things that I wanted to apply again I'm GONNA. Go Out Wednesday night to supposed to have clear skies both nights up here in northern California for this type of photography the comments going to be about five to ten degrees above the horizon, so I need to find a good spot. I'm working on that right now. And I'm just going to get out and do some shots I'm GonNa do some shots now. My view of the comet shot for me anyway, and and I have shot comments before Hale Bopp I shot Haley's comet out in the desert out of Joshua Tree. Way Back when with film with CODA color like something, crazy cutter via our four hundred or something like that. It's a very grainy shot, but it's sharp in. It's actually quite beautiful I. Still Look At. It sometimes got Joshua Trees in the foreground all that. I'm not going to go out to the desert for this, but i. do have some good locations around here scouting them out right now for tomorrow night. And? Go out and just see if I'm really lucky if I have a great night when I go out. I have a great night I have the possibility of getting like two or three or four different shots in one photo shoot I love that especially after the drought that I've been in just in recent weeks. So I thought okay, let's talk about this. Is Talk about you know how to prepare talk about you know what to look for? Because a lot of you I'm sure in the same boat as me. This might sound appealing is a different kind of assignment begun. If we could even compare shots, you know if I get a shot and you get a shot and all that maybe I'll do a facebook post where we can compare shots well. Listen how goes first. And then we'll, we'll take it from there. So I've got five things that I have learned from doing these sort of shoots that I. Want to share with you right now. Really I mean a lot of this stuff. You're GONNA probably already. Know more what I'm trying to do today. Is this get you excited about going out and doing this and hoping that you will go out and do it if you have the opportunity to do so?

"Staffing level. We'll David Smith. You know, we have what maybe two and a half weeks before there's the possibility hopefully, it won't happen. But possibility of another government shutdown or are you folks at Joshua tree or the Rangers. They're trying to prepare for that possibility. Well, they're they're professionals. You know, they they they came to the National Park Service because they they love public service, and they love taking care of national parks. So they're doing everything they can right now to mitigate the damage that occurred during the shutdown and to educate the public and reaching out to our partners to help out as much as possible. If there if there were to be another shutdown or something like that are are park association that you know, they volunteered to operate. Our visitor centers, you know, during the shutdown, and, you know, just just having those those exhibits they're having them giving out safety warnings and things like that. That would be you know, that that's a godsend to have folks to be able to do things like that the businesses and the local community. I'm sure they are ready to jump to it again and start helping us with with toilets and things like that. I we're really trying to message to the public right now. Just how fragile the desert ecosystem is and just how important it is. For folks to stay on the road. You know? If there's a shutdown, you know, pick up your garbage, you know, don't don't don't expect that someone's going to be there to pick it up to use some of the common sense that to me is I know 'cause I've been working for the park service for almost thirty years. You know, you you don't run your dog, you know, through wildland his lots of wildlife, you don't operate a drone or it's going to harass. You know birds that are up there. We just have to get those messages out. Well, you know, David if I may say maybe based in Boston now, but I grew up on the west coast, and I'm going to shamefully admit to the nation that I have never been to Joshua tree national park. It's an oversight that I have to fix. So I'm gonna come out there soon sometime. Hopefully, you were you were my personal guests I will time, and I would love to show you the and just how magical and special Joshua the desert. There is absolutely as I said at the beginning of the conversation, part of our national parks system.
