The Good Pirate

"Welcome to kiss myths and mysteries. I'm your host crumb today. I'm continuing my investigation into the myths and mysteries surrounding pirates in one individual in particular because not all pirates were that evil that raped and pillaged their way up various villages along the coast. One such individual who was a pirate was Francis Drake. He was born in fifteen forty. Two by fifteen seventy six. He was the queen's favor and was directed to sail to a secret location one. She only disclosed to her inner circle. The difficulty in determining the location isn't honest return after circumnavigating the world upon his arrival back in England the coin hat all his maps and shipped logs locked up to this day. Few of these documents have been released despite. This history has revealed that Spain had blocked. Most of the trade routes England had used and she had found one end of the fabled northwest passage and the drake was to establish the other end meanwhile amateur to story and Robert Ward thinks. Drake was on a secret mission to find the northwest passage. And that's why he was sailing so far up the west coast. The idea is drake sailed up the coast. Until he found something he thought was the northwest passage perhaps Strait of Juan de Fuca but drake's bad located not far from point Reyes California and fourteen other sides claimed to be where in fifteen seventy nine drake spent sixty eight days now. He spent those sixty eight days because he needed a place to make repairs. Which involves something called careening? This is where the ship was pulled completely out of the water so that our whole be made free of worms barnacles the location of California's raise for the sixty eight day. Stay and repair of the ship are based on the area code. Drakes Bay fit in maps description of the bay where he stayed and a page from a ship's log that listed the side as thirty eight degrees north latitude and a brass plaque. The description of Indians found there but the plaque was declared a fake in nineteen thirty six and the fact that the Indians lived off. Acorns was never mentioned. And that the shape of the Bay but Oregon's whale cove also fits the shape of the bay on the map but the Indians were described as living in huts that were partially below ground. When the University of Oregon Examining area in the cove they found that just as described on the page of the ship slog the remnants of a native American hut partly underground near the side. Number of English coins were found that dated back to just before. Drake set sail. Also there was a document a firsthand description based on the observation of eight of his crew. That stated that they had stopped at forty four degrees north latitude. It would seem that a all the sites that claim to be were drake spent that summer of sixty eight days. Only the organ location forty four degrees north latitude which is exactly well. Co has the most real physical evidence of his visit. If you're driving up the Oregon coast be sure to stop at the town of Depot. Bake and enjoy the small town hospitality. Drive another mile and a half to whale cove and try to imagine what it was like for Sir Francis. Drake back in fifteen seventy nine but the debate. Over the location of Drake's North American stop rages on and despite evidence pointing at Oregon's well only put to rest when England releases all drake's maps and logs from his trip around the World Sir Francis Drake in Oregon's wilco was produced here at night owl sound studio and brought to you by internationally recognized psychic and medium Sharon our author of the Book Life Eternal.

"Over the course of history humans have fought wars overland honor wealth and religion but perhaps the oddest and dumbest war which almost never broke out between two major world. Powers was over a pig. A single pig learn more about the british american conflict known as the pig war on this episode of everything everywhere daily. This episode is sponsored by g adventures.

Tours are available for booking today and we'll be departing from october. Second twenty twenty to the end of twenty twenty one for more information into book your tour click on the link in the show notes if you remember back to my episode about the us canadian border. The british and americans originally set the boundary in the west on the forty nineth parallel. That was how they divided up the oregon territory with the exception that the british got full control of vancouver island. The area between vancouver island and the mainland wasn't resolved in the treaty. However the treaty said that the border would go down the middle of the strait of juan de fuca which is what separates washington state in vancouver. Island british columbia. The problem was there was more than one way to define. The middle of the channel within the strait of juan de fuca are the san juan islands. The middle of the channel could be defined as going through the center of the islands or it could be defined as going around the islands in the deepest part of the channel. It wasn't really clear which side of the border the islands light on the. Us and britain agreed to hold the islands in dispute and just sort of left it at that however dispute became the basis of what became known as the pig war in the straight are several islands. The most important of which is san. Juan island san juan island controls the mouth of the straight so both the americans and the british wanted to control that island to that end both the americans and the british aka canadians head settlers on the island. The british hudson bay company had set up a sheep ranch on the island in about twenty five. American settlers had also set up camp. The incident which started everything occurred june fifteenth eighteen fifty nine thirteen years to the day after the signing of the oregon treaty which explicitly left the sovereignty of the islands on resolved. In american by the name of lyman cutler found a pig rooting around his garden. Eating easiest potatoes. This wasn't the first time this had happened. He was so angered at the pig that he picked up his gun and shot it. The pig belong to an irishman named charles griffin. Who worked for the hudson. Bay company was a neighbor to cutler. He had several pigs that he let wander around freely. Cutler offered griffin ten dollars in compensation for the loss of the pig griffin refused the offer and insisted on one hundred dollars color then said he didn't have to pay anything because the pig had been trespassing in his garden and eating crops according to one account of the story which may or may not be true color told griffin your pig was eating my potatoes to which griffin replied. It is up to you to keep your potatoes out of my pig from here. To paraphrase ron burgundy things escalated quickly griffin contacted the british authorities and asked cutler be arrested for shooting. His pig in the rest of the americans be evicted. The american settlers not liking the idea of the british being able to arrest americans on what they believed to be their soil or the idea of being forcibly removed as brigadier general william s harney the staunchly anti-british military head of the oregon territory to send in troops on july fifteenth. He sent captain. George pickett who later became a confederate general famous for pickett's charge at the battle of gettysburg and sixty three other men to the island. They set up camp near the hudson bay. Sheep companies station. The british governor of an couvert island james. Douglas was angered at this intrusion by the americans so he contacted captain. Geoffrey phipps hornby of the royal navy. Who was sent to san juan island with the thirty one gun. Steam frigate hms tribune. This was soon followed by the hms satellite and the plumper which had thirty one and twenty one gun respectively throw july. The british kept bringing in marines for a possible and fitness landing. Hornby refused to take any action and instead waited for rear. Admiral lambert baynes. Who was the head of the entire eastern pacific fleet of the royal navy. All the while this was happening more. Americans kept streaming onto the island by august tenth. Not even two months after the pig was shot. There were four hundred sixty one. Americans with fourteen cannons in five british warships mounting seventy guns with two thousand one hundred and forty marines and sailors. Staring down at each other governor. Douglas was adamant that. Admiral baynes land on the island. He refused to do so saying that. Quote two great nations in a war over. A squabble about a pig was ridiculous. The american commanders were basically given the same order not to shoot first and only defend yourself if necessary by the time word of this incident got back to both washington and london. Both governments ordered everyone to stand down as this would perhaps be the dumbest reason ever to start a war in negotiations. Both countries agreed that the island would be jointly occupied by both military's with forces. One hundred men each soon after this was resolved the civil war started in a final resolution to the conflict was put on hold during the civil war. British authorities on vancouver island urged the british government to take back most of the puget sound region as the americans were occupied with the civil war but nothing was ever done in eighteen. Seventy one twelve years after the initial military occupation of the island. Both sides agreed to international arbitration by kaiser wilhelm of germany who awarded the islands to the united states on november twenty fifth eighteen. Seventy two the british withdrew from the island and the americans rushed in to hoist a giant american flag on the flagpole at the british camp only to find that the poll had been chopped down. The british government eventually replaced a flagpole in nine hundred ninety eight and today it is the only place where a foreign flag flies on land owned by the us federal government in recognition to the peaceful relations between the two countries for the last two hundred years. There's one interesting footnote that might put the pig war into perspective. After the two hundred th anniversary of the war of eighteen twelve between the americans the british historians found notes from british ministers after the war. Which said if there was to be any future war with the united states they would abandon all of their possessions in north america including all of. What is today canada. Rather than try to fight another war the cost of keeping it especially in the face of rapidly growing united states was too great and it will take resources away from what they considered their real prize india so if things had turned out just a little bit differently. The nation of canada might not exist today. All because a pig got into someone's garden executive producer of everything everywhere. Daily is james mcculloch.

Minute by minute when the earth shakes

"Welcome to kiss myths and mystery cyber host Kit crump. Today I'm doing a podcast on the mega quake the Pacific northwest past and future, and there will be a special note to those of you lived in the Pacific northwest at the end of this podcast. Subduction zone earthquakes have occurred every three hundred and fifty years since six hundred BC with the most recent taking place January twenty six, seventeen o, one evidence for the earlier quakes comes from core samples taken from the ocean floor. The seventeen o one quite caused several coastal regions of Washington and Oregon to drop sixty six feet massive coastal storms during one, thousand, nine, hundred, Ninety, seven, and ninety eight washed away tons of sand revealing hundreds of stumps. The remnants of Sitka spruce forest it is through a combination of carbon dating and the county. Of Rings the date of last cascade subduction zone or C. S. Z. quake took place. The Earth's surface is made up of seven major plates in many smaller ones. The smaller plates creator quakes for Short Durations Fourteen to forty five seconds that may reach nine point five on the Richter scale. They often take place of what is called. The fault line between plays the smaller plates, March Eleven, twenty eleven Japan experience us abduction zone quick that lasted more than four minutes at nine point one on the Richter scale, it was the fourth most powerful. Earthquake. In the world sense modern record taking began in one thousand, nine, hundred shake created a Su- Nami that reached a hundred and thirty three feet and moved to six miles inland. It move Japan's main island, of Honshu, eight feet and shifted the earth on its axis between four and ten inches. This wasn't earthquake created by the shifting of the Pacific Plate finally to help put earthquakes in perspective the. Loma prieta quake that interrupted the nineteen eighty nine world series in San. Francisco California lasted fifteen seconds the Great San Francisco earthquake of nineteen. Th Six was eight point six lashes forty five seconds, but Japan's greater earthquake of twenty eleven lasted over four minutes at nine point. One of the Richter scale based on data from Oregon see geographer Patrick or run and Usgs Alaska Science Center true mysteries of the. Pacific. Northwest will now tour the predicted minute by minute impact of cascade subduction zone earthquake on the Oregon coast after three, hundred, twelve years the C. S. Z. can no longer take the strain. Now this is conjecture. So hang in there with me after three hundred, twelve years CS. Can. No longer take the strain. It ruptures at a spot fifty, five miles west of Cannon Beach Oregon, and quickly spread. So long seven hundred miles of its length from British Columbia to Mendocino California the north. American plate slips fifty seven feet to the southwest sliding over the Juan de Fuca plate. But remember we're talking about a crust more than fifty miles deep. First Movement sends a pressure wave that travels through the Earth's crust thirteen, thousand miles an hour it will reach. The West Coast in ten seconds the leading edge will hit Oregon's Kennett beach and seaside thirty seconds slater. It reaches Portland Oregon in fifty seconds it has Seattle at nine point. One is what seismologist call a full rip me cities can withstand six point eight, quake lasting forty, five seconds but the difference between a forty second and four minute earthquake is like the difference between a head on collision at four miles an hour and forty miles an hour within three minutes as. A shaking continues the coast will drop from six to twenty five feet after five minutes. The worst is over for Portland and Seattle. It will have suffered from ground liquefication billets will collapse gas buyers will kerr citywide after six minutes, people seeking high ground to avoid the soon, Nami will be impeded by debris and driving. We'll be an impossibility at eight minutes to soon nominee will be about twenty five miles offshore. It approaches like an enormous high tide but flash floods speed. The leading edge will only be inches, but will increase to forty feet is predicted that the cascade subduction zone quake would create twice the impact lice the impact of Japan's great quake of two thousand eleven keep in mind that by the time you finish listening to this podcast, there will have been earthquakes all over the world, but mostly from the smaller plates I said at the beginning of this podcast will be a special note for those of you in the Pacific. Northwest. Has said that in the event of a quake, we would lose most of our overpasses both in Washington and Oregon creating huge problems with transporting food and supplies to various cities like Corvallis, where you gene and they would not go out and repair those roads. They would instead maintain what had no overpasses. This is kid chrome. Thanks for listening.

Done it is winner of the week time Iraq actually there the. Two winners because they were together. So the winners of the week are Zach. Re I think it's spelled Regan R. E. G.. A. And it's either Reagan or Regan and Maddie Johnson. So I'll just quickly read the story to friends route on a surfing trip when they saved a dog stuck in a sea cliff cave. On August I I, know it's a little little bit pass but Zach Regan Mattie Johnson were off on an overnight adventure on Vancouver island's remote West Coast with everything they needed to go surfing fishing set up to be a great trip. They're out in their small aluminum boat went out of the corner of his eye Maddie saw the brown legs an animal in a cave. It was too small to be a bear or wolf. A good thing, right. Won't be. Paddling. Over. To a hair. It was a starving cold terrified dog. We were trying to beat an upcoming storm but we made the decision to save the dog Maddie Johnson tells c. n. n. that's the reporting agency. The pairs rescue mission was on it involved a wet suit a surfboard Alaso almost being bitten in the face a reef big waves and awesome teamwork. Once, the Dogs Stella was safely in their boat. They snuggled her bag to keep her warm than once on dry land and Canada again, they began their search for the owner. Matty said they were great. Fives all around when the owners long since consigned to the death of their dog that word that she be safe. How how long do you think this dog was gone? Well. For. One I. Just had say as the owners are walking down the beach looking for the dog what were the yelling still? Thought. That I would say, the the dog was probably missing I would say a week three months holy. Three months missing. So she survived like Tom Hanks did and. They the last the last word of the stories that last sentence of the story last couple senses, the owners were amazed to see their Pentagon they thought they'd lost their dog forever when they became separated on the wild Juan de Fuca trail three months prior how so that were they visiting the trail or were they from? That's a good question. They don't they don't go into a lot of details I do have the The the link to this story will be on the show notes if if if listeners WANNA look that up but it's a great story, these two cats are just out surfing. Fishing doing whatever and did almost dog in a cave and I'm just wondering what did the dog survive on for three months jellyfish I mean you know criminal and surprising that it wasn't you know. You know dive die from hypothermia our us you know I just got mazing I wasn't was wet for three months was to me. They had a picture of the dog. It was kind of I'm going to say it was a medium sized kind of a terrier type dogs wasn't like it was like A. Big Tough dog you know. Although, I who knows maybe this is a really he must have been a tough dog last for three months. So anyway, it was a bigger dog when I got it could have been it was probably much smaller. So to Zach, Regan and Mattie Johnson you are winners of the week. Thanks well. That is how winning is done. So let's get onto our subject. We're talking today about lucid dreaming now I I may even say that term and many of you out there might think will the heck is that don't even know what that means from what the when we talked about this. Last episode. You talked about how you have control, right? Right At times at time. Okay. That see that's what I think when you say lucid dreaming, that's where my brain goes. So. Then you have consulates. Let's just happen to dreams for minute because dreams occur when you're in the realm stage of sleep. That's when your deepest asleep okay. And that's when your subconscious mind is the most active during the night. And we all know our subconscious minds are are really screwed up. That's why people have. That's why dreams are sometimes so bizarre. Me there you don't know. Tell me your dreams. We'll find out. But because because your subconscious is active, it can pull these random connections and just put things together and that that's my dreams are so bizarre sometimes 'cause there's no order to it. When you're sleeping is just these random thoughts popping in and making the stream. So if you've ever had a dream where you realize you're dreaming. In the dream? You come to the realization Oh, my God I'm in a dream. That's what Lucid Dreaming It is is the awareness that you're dreaming okay. While you're in the dream. Okay. All right. That makes that makes a lot now. Okay. Now. It's The awareness is there and and for for for people who have experienced this and I'm going to go into a lot of other lot of of deeper detail into this. But. It's kind of a crazy thing because you're like, wow, I I'm I realize I'm in a dream right now I'm sleeping and I'm in a dream. It's just that that awareness and that can be kind of freaking in of itself and I know just a couple of episodes ago Rutan about. Movies about dreams and suction was one of those movies yes. In there's a quote from there that I pulled out. I I can't remember. I can't remember the characters name the main character. An, inception Oh that Leo Played Yeah Leonardo Di Caprio. that. Doesn't matter. He said, he says, this is the quote well dreams. They feel real. Weird. Well, I'll start again going to mess up the read. Well Dreams. They feel real while we're in them right? It's only when we wake up that we realized that something was actually strange he what point did he say that the movie I think I think and I'm just going to be guessing here I think it was when he was explaining. To Pais Ellen page, how things worked and when when he was introducing her to Dream Yeah. So. So really because when you're in a dream and you don't know you're dreaming and that's and that's again, we'll. We'll get a nightmare on a little bit but. It's your subconscious. Mind is just being active. It can be random things it can be very crazy. But if you're not aware that you're dreaming at the time you your mind feels like it's real because that's what you're experiencing Kevin. Okay. So we're going to go back the very first record of lucid dreaming appears in the treaties on dreams written by ancient Greek philosopher Aristotle in it, he describes an instance of self awareness during his dream state. Which again I I'm sure as long as humans have been on earth. They've had these experiences. So again when you sleep your brain cycles for rapid eye movement, REM sleep, and non rem sleep. In. Rem Sleep your brain is extremely active your heart rate and your I'd movements also in Crete increases and again lucid dreaming occurs during Rem Sleep State. In that Lucy Dream, you know that your dream you're know you're dreaming you're aware. Of. You're just aware that it's a dream. In an a study done by health line dot com about fifty five percent of people have experienced one or more lucid dreams in their lifetime. However frequent lucid dreaming as rare. Only twenty three percent of people have lucid dreams at least once a month. In, another study done in the late sixties, volunteers were observed in a sleep lab and they were asked to give a signal when they were lucid dreaming. Okay so so picture this Thurn Asleep lab. Yeah. I have I pulled this from a book that I had I I did a I did a an assignment during grab my Grad work on lucid dreaming and there was this my Go-to book on this and I should have brought it and I told her to bring it but they talk about this study. So they have people in the sleep lab they haven't hooked up you know like you would when you're going for a sleep study in a lab right but they had them hooked up to an eeg which monitors brain activity. So they told them when you realize that you're dreaming when you become aware when you start lucid dreaming. In the dream squinched is really hard to times in a row. And the EEG showed two spikes. On the people who are able to to get to that lucid state now give that signal. Okay. Then yeah, it's bizarre. Very bizarre. It is. So. So again, they were aware in the dream that they were sending a signal and their brainwave showed that signal on the. Let the. On, we're getting we're getting into. into ascension again. Yeah. So it's it's pretty amazing and again anyone who's experienced this it really is kind of it can be a cool thing. Now you might ask, why would I WANNA lucid dream. And that might be that might be a good question. I don't know I. Really Quick. So there are some benefits to Lucid Green Lucid dreaming that include and I'm just going to highlight a couple of things decreasing nightmares because when you where you're in a dream. You can take control of it and we're GONNA get to that in a minute. reducing anxiety and stress including phobias such as fear of heights or spiders can what I'd like to say is. Once, you're aware it's a dream. It's kind of like rehearsal for life you do whatever you want. Right you could. You could walk right up to a like the edge of a cliff and know that you're safe because you know your dream. So you can work through a lot of these anxieties and fears. And once you know you're in control of it, it can't. There's there's nothing that should be a nightmare that scare you because you're you now are aware that your dream. With practice over time, you can start taking control of the dream. That's where might see that's where my brain was going. That's that's what I think of when Lucid, dreaming control, but it's the awareness the journalists has to come first and then you practice at it then possibly gain that control right So, and that's the why and and let me give you a couple of of. Physiological things that happen when you think about doing something and I'll use athletes is a good example just because that that's an easiest one to understand for. So let let's I'll use baseball since I like baseball you know and athletes visualize being at bat visualize a pitcher throwing the ball. They go there all that visualization process and when you think about it when you visualize it, it actually activates the connections between your mind and the muscles that you used to do those things right. So so you're making a mental connection to your muscles when you actually think about it so that when you do it, it becomes more automatic muscle memory Muslim. Tiger Woods. Mickelson they envisioned what they're trying. It's interesting. 'cause there's a list of there's a long list of athletes that we that'll. Probably it'd be good for an episode athletes who've used hypnosis to improve their. Oh Yeah. Pharmacy is Tiger Woods is one of them. Oh. Yeah. Yeah. And that's so think about it if you can in a dream. Take whatever scenario you're having difficulty with in your waking state. In work through it again, it's like a rehearsal that's it's like It's like an exhibition game. You can just try whatever and see what works. What feels good. So for therapeutic reasons, I I for clients who were able to do this. I've I've always suggested to clients. You know if you could lose dream, you know have that conversation with your mother that you've been dreading having for ten years. Or you know if you have if. Somebody's going through grief talk to a loved one that you've lost in in work out those feelings and in at South does sound a little bit far out there. But but it really is you're you're you're the the whole purpose of this podcast and my in my approaches, I do therapy and hypnosis with people as to change your thinking. So, this is another tool that you can use to just change your thinking a safe environment without any risk. Really. So so It really is I call it a rehearsal for something that you're having difficulty with in real life. The other benefit that it could have is that can enhance your creativity. Maybe, you're a musician, maybe a writer. You know maybe you're you know right movies whatever it is right I mean you could. It's it's like a it's like it's like a playground for your imagination. That you can just try whatever you want to try or see or or without the hallucinogenics. Without Without doing acid absolutely. Are you talking about? No, I have no. It's crazy. So. That's the why it can be very therapeutic thing and honestly I've I've been able to do this in it comes in waves like anything else the more you practice and I'm going to give you some tips in a moment but the more you can practice doing it. The. Better more often, it's going to happen for you. And I've I've had my periods of my life where I've been able to kind of do it kind of consistently and I'm going to say probably hasn't happened to me in least a few months where I've had a lucid dream. And we're GONNA get into. Specific things you can do to to make it more likely that you'RE GONNA lose dream now never guarantee it of course. But some of these things. This could be some kind of scam what possibly scam all. But the things you can do to make more likely that you can lucid dream. So let me go through some of those things. One is yet more deep rem sleep. If you're if you're a light sleeper and you sleep only three hours at a time, two hours at a time and you never get to that deep rhames date. It's not likely you have to be in that deep state and your your body and mind has to be used to being in that deep state because that's that's when you dream in contrary to beliefs. A lot of people say why don't dream. Everybody dreams every night. It's a it's a fact. It's just that you don't remember them because for some reason or another if you're not sometimes when you're in that deep rem sleep and when you come out of it, your memory just is gone. So quick just can't think of it after it's gone, I can't remember a dream and say my life maybe one or two when I was super young by these days I wake on get anything I dreamt about well, and that's that's very common for people who have very active minds and I say that like when you wake up automatically you're thinking of something like your day or work or you have to do this coffee but there are. There are things that you can do get more rem sleep and let me tell you how to do that. GET MORE REM sleep. But there, there are other tricks you can do to kind of set your mind up to experience. Lucid dreaming one is to keep a dream journal like right down whatever you remember whatever it is even if it's just fragments even if you've even part of it. Yeah. I was in a car driving a place I, didn't know and. You know my dog was driving I don't know it could be something crazy like that. You know. But but whatever it is even if it's just fragments, just write it down because what you're GonNa do is you're gonNA train your mind to remember. Is as you as you start to recall these, these even fragments of dreams, the more you write them down the more you focus on them. The. Better you get at remember them remembering them. So. Yeah, like a dream journal or or just notes after you wake up. In again writing down forces you to recall them and that's going to train you to do it better later. one. One thing if you find yourself in a dream. is to. Practice reality testing and. Again this. Is GonNa Sound Pretty. This all sounds a little bit crazy but but believe me it's really. It's really amazing when you can do it. Yeah. It's. So. Reality testing, what that means is that your level of consciousness is similar when you're awake and dreaming. So by increasing your awareness during your waking state, you can enhance your awareness when you're dreaming. So we're sitting here right now matinee or sitting here in this in this studio. Studios Yeah and then my head I just say to myself. I. Am I am I awake right now or am I dreaming just asking that question okay. In doing that numerous times a day. Just just to get your mind in the habit of checking what reality is. Okay. In the more you ask that question to yourself, the more you evaluate your surroundings you'll end up doing that when you're in a dream. Okay. You're Kinda like retraining the neurons in your brain to recognize this act when you're asleep. Yeah. So if you do that reality check at some point when you're in a dream, you will ask yourself that same question and my in an in a dream or am I awake And then we look for signs in this again, anybody everybody's had dreams people we we know things are crazy and dreams. You know if you're. Like you said, if you see your dog driving a car. You're automatically you're gonNA think this isn't real. I know I'm dreaming because my can't drive. Yet. Well, he might who knows but but when you look for things like that, like these, these what I wanna call them just like these. These clues that things aren't real or these clues that things aren't right. And there are a couple of other facts that come from from that book that I referenced earlier. It's it's almost impossible to read when you're dreaming in the Dream Okay it's very if you if you look at a clock or watch in a dream, you can rarely tell what time it is like you can't focus on those details. I didn't know that And the other thing to do is that if you ever find yourself I, don't know if you've ever found yourself in a drain and again when your Lucid Dreaming Your where it's a dream but you don't WanNa lose it. You know how your sometimes you in a dream that just ends as just and again W- most dreams only last about a minute or two. At most so you probably have twenty, thirty, forty dreams the night you said, you don't recall most of them. But in order to stay grounded in a dream where you know you're dreaming. It helps to look down at your feet. Okay. That's another thing they found in the study. They did back in the sixties in order to to kind of keep people in that lucid state was to ground yourself in the best way to do that to look at your feet in your dream. This is one of the things I. Really enjoy about your your show. That I learned so much over the past sixteen episodes of the motor city hypnotists right that this is just blowing my mind. Lack of. otas raisin honestly. And it does sound really wild. So. But for listeners out there it's really this is really a cool thing. If you're if you're able to train yourself to do this, it can be fun because what you can do at some point. The more practice you get a dozen better you get at it. Now you can start taking control of your environment in your dream because once you know you're dreaming now. You have part of your subconscious and your conscious mind working together and you can make yourself fly if you want to write or talk to anybody want or change the scenario or whatever, whatever you'd want to do you now have some control over it and that really. In. A come all comes back to the therapeutic part of it is that it just think about how much how many things you could workout in your dreams that that you jet that you're so anxious and worried about. In real life. In its in it's a safe place. Nobody's going to get pissed at you. Nobody's GonNa Punch you the face. Well maybe in the dream, but but won't be real. If you know your dream you don't care anyway depends on what you're doing to get punched in the face. Well, that's true too. Talk. Are you. Yeah. It could be that. So, now, I do want to lay out this disclaimer quickly. If you happen to suffer from any serious mental health conditions such as schizophrenia or any type of delusional. Disorders. I I'm not saying I'm not saying it could be dangerous, but but it it's. Just. I would recommend talking to a doctor before you before you attempt this in again overall I think it's probably totally safe but just as a disclaimer if if you're sometimes delusional in your waking state and and it just it might cause issues for you. It's good disclaimer you know and just. Be Safe Yeah and that's all I. Want people to do is be safe and just you know. Just, just not get yourself into a situation where you're you know. You're thinking more than you should be if you're trying not to right now I know this all sounds it does it sounds like a movie sounds kind of like inception like, oh, this is crazy. Can Go in you know you're dreaming but but if you use this right, it can be very beneficial for addressing a lot of the things I mentioned earlier. So I know we're close to being done for this episode, but I know in last the last episode or a couple times ago. I'M GONNA put in the hypnosis for insomnia link in this show notes for this episode because again I know people. Probably Thinking Jeez, I I have a hard time sleeping anyway how I'm not going to get to the point of dreaming. But if you if you pick up my hypnosis for insomnia, let let's take it one step at a time. Let's get. You're sleeping well every night, and then we can kind of focus on getting into the into the strategies of trying to lucid dream breath and if and if you have any questions or anything or or even if she wanted to check on a check in with me on social media. tell me if you've had lucid dreams tell if if you have something that you do that that works for you that makes it happen I won't. I won't shoot down things. No. Long. What shut you up, but it'd be interesting to see what other people do on how what their, what their strategies are for this because I know there's there's a lot of people that are. A dream. You know pretty much consistently and they've gotten to that point. So that's something I'm going to remind myself to try to practice more even because I like I said it comes in waves from if I'm really thinking about it and focused on it's like anything else just like working out once it becomes a habit it's a habit. Once you're out of it for a while it's hard to get started. Got It. So. That's it for this episode people. Lucid dreaming it's very fascinating. And again, it really is cool if you can. If you can get there. So give it a try and let me know how you do keep following that white rabbit at the APP. Follow the White Rabbit And if your name is Nieto, you get bonus. There you go. As our next episode again, we're going to have a little bit of fun why don't know if it's fun. We did a ten top ten movie countdown a while back or we're going to do one. Next episode top ten movies that make men cry Oh. Shit. And it's a little bit. It's a little bit fund do account down like that but it's also we're gonNA address emotions and how that plays into it. You you got a big shoulder is going to get crackdown. Well, exactly. That's fine. See come back next episode we're going to talk about the top ten movies that make men cry. And believe me we're it's not going to be that serious. You don't have to cry while you're listening. We'll. We'll have fun with it as well. So Everybody. Thanks for checking in. Look for on the next episode change. Your. Thinking Change Your Life Laugh hard run fast behind. I will see you soon.

The Washington county winning at picking presidents

"Support for seattle now comes from the pacific northwest waterways association with the columbia snake river system providing clean energy and sustainable commerce has washington aims for carbon neutrality by twenty thirty learn more at p. Nwa dot net slash river values. Hey it's patricia murphy. It's tuesday and this is seattle now. Polling for this presidential election was a bit of a mess but pollsters could do far worse than taking a trip to washington picturesque clam county on the olympic peninsula. It's the most reliable county in the country at backing presidential winners in a minute. Kyw's david hi explains what we could learn from cloud county but first let's get. You caught up. Kobe cases continue to surge in washington. Here in king county. Almost twenty percent of the cases we've had in the entire pandemic have been added in the past two weeks. The governor's new covid restrictions on restaurants gyms and indoor gatherings aimed at stopping. The spread are now in effect secretary of state. Kim wyman has won three terms to the office that oversees elections now. The republican says she plans to propose to the legislature that her office become nonpartisan washington voters also elect a nonpartisan superintendent of public instruction and members of the state supreme court and pour one out for the crocodile the legendary seattle music venue that hosted pearl jam and nirvana. It won't host another concert in its original bell town space but in some rare good news during the pandemic they'll be opening up in a new space. You'll be able to catch them in a new venue in val town where the bar el gaucho was located. The voting is over but the election feels like it keeps dragging on. Nothing feels predictable about it but predictions seemed to be a specialty for one washington state county. That's on a forty year winning streak at picking presidents the longest in the nation clam county has chosen each president since ronald reagan was elected in nineteen eighty. The county voted for donald trump. In two thousand sixteen and this year. It's one blue for biden k. u. o. w. political reporter david hyde has been looking into what's behind the county's successful run. Hey david good to talk to you. A trish fallon county. David is out on the olympic peninsula. It's not necessarily a place. I would consider to be predictive of the mood of the nation. Gimme a break down about who lives there. You've been out there right trish. i have been him county. I love camping out there. I love hiking out there. It's beautiful runs along the strait of juan de fuca the backdrop of the olympic mountains. It's absolutely gorgeous. And if you're new to the region cloud county gets seventy nine inches of rain on average per year and seattle about half that and it's also More diverse and varied than seattle. You could say when it comes to politics. There are some places that are pretty heavily and predictably republican forks for example Known for its mushrooms around sixty seven percent of voters in forks. Went for trump this year and It includes a see that a political consultant described to me some of the whitest voters in the state mainly vampires my joke so you can contrast for with three tribal areas out there in the county very consistently democratic this year. The mccaw at nia bay when eighty two percent for biden So again cloud county politically diverse. What's going on here since voters made this dramatic swing from trump to biden because my experience in cloud county is a lot of republicans. There are a ton of republicans out there. I saw a lot of signs when i was out on the peninsula this summer. Yeah lots of culp signs everywhere this year even in places where you didn't see trump signs. Interestingly at least in my experience the city of scam is the place to look for answers according to seattle based political consultant ben andor stone he says that squint swings the most of any place in the county at least politically and he also by the way predicted that scam and clown county would swing back for the democrats this year so i spoke with the editor of the scrim gazette. His name is michael. She'll and he says what you have to look for out. There is the fact. There's a ton of retirees and that means there's a ton of in migration from other places and part of the reason of course is that the annual rainfall in s- quim is only sixteen inches if you're in seattle looking out at the olympic peninsula. This time of year gonna see a little glimmer of sunlight. That's always swim. That's why people retire out there. And according to shield that population of retirees means the population out there is constantly changing and shifting depending on where people are moving in from so if they're moving in from much county in seattle. The place tends to be a little bit more democratic if they're moving up here from say orange county california in search of lower taxes and cheap land those folks are more likely to be republicans so that could explain why the county swing so much you know even from year to year as we saw in the last two election cycles. But i don't think it totally explains why it's so accurate. The most accurate bellwether county in the entire country. And i just think on that question there might be some more detailed reporting to be done about clown county. That is fascinating clam is both a swing county and politically diverse place. How then david does it mirror. What's happening on the national stage right. Just within the city of scrimmage itself this year fifty eight percent of voters went for joe biden. So you could say Fairly democratic this year but the mayor of skim isn't just a trump supporter. This guy is a q. And on backer. Who how instructed people on a radio show this ever suggested that they look into the cunanan conspiracy theory or theories and of course cunanan's ideas include the belief that the world is run by satan worshipping pedophile. Who are operating this global child sex trafficking ring and that donald trump is trying to prevent it So and this guy william armacost. Who's who's pushing this idea. Swim still the mayor of the city. So you could say that in cloud county what you're seeing mirrors what we're seeing nationally. Politics biden one. They're just like he did nationally but we haven't exactly returned to normal even if that's what people were hoping for cloud county is also bucking the trend compared to other washington state counties that voted republican in two thousand sixteen. We didn't see this kind of flip. Other places in washington why have other counties held fast for trump. where classroom has deviated. Yeah there were four other counties that flipped in twenty twelve and none more dramatically than grays harbor county which is centered around aberdeen. This is a heavily democratic. Historically hadn't voted for a democrat before trump since nineteen twenty eight this year biden ever so slightly outperformed hillary clinton by maybe a percentage point but voters. They're basically stuck with trump and don't appear to be running back to the democratic party anytime soon. The other story out there as callous county on the oregon border this includes the city of longview washington. Pretty white working class They went even redder this year than in two thousand sixteen. And so you could say that cal. It's mirrors a lot of what we saw in the rest of the country where in some counties in many counties trump actually did better with the white working class than he did back in two thousand sixteen david. Democrats and republicans. Both have learned a lot of hard lessons from this election. What could they learn if they zoomed in on the northwesterly corner of washington. State does clam tell us where the nation might head next. I think it's a really good idea. I think pollsters should be looking out there heading into twenty twenty four. we never get pulled. We never get any attention here in washington state and yet we've got the best bellwether in the entire country out there on the olympic peninsula. And they can't do probably any worse than they did elsewhere this year. This is also a country. Trish that i'll point out uses a groundhog to predict what the weather is going to be each year and certainly cloud county more reliably predictable than that. So yeah pollsters should be looking out in cloud county next year. They've been since nineteen thousand. Nine hundred eighty. Why not twenty. Twenty four said it before. I'll say it again. It will be here waiting when you decide to pay attention to washington state. Kyw political reporter. David hyde thanks a lot. Good to talk to you. Thanks trish thanks.

Jon Billmans The Cold Vanish looks at stories of people who go missing in the wilderness

"The. He smashed pretty much. Every billboard and streaming record that matters it has already been streamed more than a billion times. People still to this day. Point to this is the moment everything changed, but whether you agree with those claims are not this podcast. Is it really about him? Either? You're not an astute businessman, or you're inherently racist. When it comes to black music in his country, this is not a drake podcast available now on CBC. Listen or wherever you get your podcast. This is a CBC podcast. Sons. Jake. Young man as long. As it caused. Only GONNA do. Solution. Apple. That song was written about a massive search for twenty two year old cyclist Jacob Gray three years ago, Jacob wet into Olympia. National Park in Washington state and never came out. Historians at the center of a new book called the Cold Vanish seeking the missing in North America's wildlands. Its author bilman has spent years travelling across north. America investing the stories of people who have gone into the woods and disappeared without a trace. He's also a regular contributor to outdoor magazine John Building. Good John Belen Good Morning. Good morning, how did you become so interested in investigating missing people in North America's wild lands? And where did that interest start? It started with my wife and I lived in Wyoming. Wyoming is very sparsely populated state and a young Olympic caliber runner named Amy Bechtol went missing in the Wind River Range just north of where we live, and so we followed the case in the state white paper, and on NPR, it was just fascinating to me and that's really the case kicked it off right now. You became involved in even embedded in the search for one of those Missing People Jacob Gray. Tell me about him. How did he disappear? Jacob Jacob Listening Venture twenty two year, old and He was planning. Would I consider a young man's dream cycling trip? Across North America. He was heading heading from Washington state on the West, coast out to Vermont in the East issues, brother and He took several weeks to to plan this trip and get his gear together. And in April of two thousand seventeen. He left a note for his grandmother and left in the middle of the night. That's the last time any family had seen him. And oddly he went west towards the Pacific. Ocean instead of heading East Vermont and it's it's. It's mysterious as to why he he went that way. His bicycle was found in the park two days later. That kicked off this this whole story. What did he leave behind? What did that little? Look like with the bicycle. Odd because A hiker driving had had reported it to rangers and then Rangers went to the scene to investigate, and he was pulling a child's trailer that he had fitted to carry his gear. So his total outfit, his uncle was very heavy, but he wasn't interested in racing was he was touring and He's extremely fit and athlete and so He had camping gear. He had a bow and Arrow he had books. He had heavy blankets he he was really outfitted for You know to live off the bike. And what was strange about where the Rangers came upon the bike with that Most of that year was still there. It did not look like he was trying to hide bicycle. it looks like you just. Around the corner and plan to come back immediately, but never did. What was it like for you to be so closely involved? You know to be three right up close as the search unfolded. I I'm always apprehensive about that I. DON'T WANNA BE I. Don't WanNa be seen like an ambulance chaser. I try to be really careful with with these families and and The Gray family was special. Randy Randy Jacobs father. Me a bear hug when you know the first time I met him. You know I'd never met this guy and you know. His son is missing. And he gives me a big bear, hug and kind of a punch in the arm, and he's just a a special kind of spirit, and it made me feel comfortable immediately, and and that's when I knew. You know this is. This is a story I can comfortably imbed here in maybe the story of what it's really like. To undergo What from psychologists call you know the hardest thing human being has to suffer. He's you've mentioned his dad Jacobs Daddy. You said that he's the type of father. You'd want looking for you if you if you should. You go missing that he will liquidate his world in order to find his son. What was so extraordinary about what he did to find his son take. He literally he left his job. is very successful contracting business and bought a camper, a truck pickup truck, citing camper, and just literally made his home on the road. The other thing that people should understand about Randy's. He's in his mid sixty, but he's one of the most fit athletes I've ever met. He's keen surfer I could barely keep up with him in the water, and certainly not in the woods. He'd have to stop and wait for me. It was. That that was the physically that was the hard part for me is just keeping up with Randy Gray, and so when he says he searched an area you have to. You have to believe that he literally search behind every down log underneath every rock in in a given area. He's extrordinary. Jacob Grey had been planning to or had at least been interested in visiting Canada. Specifically British Columbia and he disappeared pretty close to the Canadian border. Did the search extent to Canada? Know he was in the process. They come papers that he was in the process of applying for a passport but Those are no Jacob. No that that he wouldn't let something like an official document. Keep him from from doing what he wanted to do, so he was the kind that this is going to sound crazy to people that understand that straight of San. Juan de Fuca, he, one of the theories was maybe he borrowed a Kayak and paddled across to Vancouver Island So Randy and I went a couple of times up into Canada all over southern and Western. British Columbia Onto Vancouver Island. You know talk to people. Jacob was interested in in organic farming and so. we would go talk to farmers. Hey, have you seen seen a young man and just go to the next farm and go to the next farm We talked to surfers. We would talk to Fisher people What did you? What did you turn up? Anything they're. Just there are a lot of young people that you know would would fit us a description similar to Jacob, just young people doing adventurous things in you know no. No one specifically thought that they saw Jacob in Canada. But people said if likely that he went here, he went there. He went to spring. Island So you know it gave us certainly gave us You know the next the next dot to try to get to the next day for sure. I'd like to get a sense of how big a problem this is. You mentioned that lots of young people take on adventure strips like this. How many people actually disappear into the Wilderness in North America every year? Do No. Question because we don't know and that seems very very. The you know twenty twenty and the technology that we have available on our palm, and we still don't know. Thousands or hundreds? Well, it's at least hundreds and so the the the number that that we arrive at in the book is sixteen hundred in North America, and it's PROB-. That's probably very conservative. It's an understatement. Do we know why people disappear in the wildlife. What's what's the most common reason that's interesting? Because I think probably the most common reason is something happens to them, and they perish, and they just perish, and a very hidden spot, and oftentimes are never seen again or years later, some remains discovered. But the ones that interest me are are the head scratchers. Where is this just illogical senate? Professional team of trained searchers couldn't find more clues, and does it take what how long does it take for a rescue operation to actually become essentially a body recovery search normally on average. That depends on the on the train. It depends on the weather. Some I I did a magazine story in Maui and Hawaii this woman again. She was an athlete very fit. percent survived seventeen days in the in the jungle. you know that? Certainly not you know. It's not winter conditions, but she was smart about getting water and enough to eat from plants. You know. She survived seventeen days. Which is credible?

There are so many stories like this in a very and endings some quite tragic, obviously, and one of them is a Canadian who also vanished without a trace, and we want to kind of revisit that case. Here's our CFP. Chief Superintendent Roland Wells in Halifax, updating the press on the search. This is from June third, two, thousand, fourteen Thursday may twenty ninth lower cycle rcmp received a call an overdue mountain biker in the spider area. We wrote. Thirty year old male had gone Viking did not return home. Over the past five days approximately four hundred fifty ground search rescue volunteers from across the maritimes and joint. Task Force Atlantic personnel were tasked with covering a vast area very challenging conditions. The terrain was dense. Temperatures were high and some areas extremely treacherous for even the most experienced searchers. Department of Natural, resources and our CPO helicopters all-terrain vehicles watercraft police dogs services all. Assisted in the search. Unfortunately, there has been no sign of Mr. John what happened to Marty. Leisure wow, that's that's A. that's a million dollar. Question this. This is one of those that defy all logic, not just because they couldn't find him, but they couldn't even find his bicycle and I know you know it was a. he was a big trail bike that would've weighed forty pounds in. You know for the kind of resources that were applied to that search into not have found even the bicycle. Just wildly mysterious to me. What are some of the theories out there? But what happened? Oh, wow I. You know. I talked to his brother Marcel and you on. An athlete can spend a lot of energy. Getting themselves more lost, you know someone typically thinks they're headed in the right direction and then the blood sugar in their brain drops, and they're going in the wrong direction, but they can make a lot of ground I think the best that anyone can come up with. Is that he? He just just trudged Outside of the search range and perished in terrain where it's really difficult to see him from the air. You, you devote a whole chapter to his case in your book I wonder if you could tell us a little bit about how the disappearance of of Mardi leisure affected his family. Yeah it. It it just crushed his father I. I think it's fair to say the family just wasn't wasn't the same again. And you hear. It's almost become a cliche. Closure but I just I've seen so many times. It's so important. To not understand what happened to your loved. One is drives people mad as you say, there are so many confounding cases in this in this area. What was the strangest case that you explored? Would you say you know there's there's a case in Mesa? Verde National Park fifty one year old man Dale, staling witnessing in in the summer of twenty, thirteen there, RV had had broken down. He was with his family on just a typical vacation. And they were parked at the visitor's center and Mesa. Verde is a fascinating place, but it's not what I would call one of the most remote or wild national parks in the country. It's essentially a living museum. You know he he could see some of the The ruins from the parking lot of the visitor center and there were there was a paved pathway, a wheelchair, accessible pathway and He was GonNa go you know, walk a quarter mile and and look at them and his family. That was last time they saw him so I know the the superintendent there and they they did a great job of searching, not even a a ball cap, or she lays nothing no clues as to as to where he vanished and. They searched just about every inch of that park. If not every inch. Understandably I suppose. There are a lot of conspiracy theories about people who disappeared without trace I wonder if you could. Shed some light on that. What are some of those series? Well? Certainly, bigfoot have to come up every time you talk about missing persons, and he's really mysterious cases. I met quite a few people who are which I say, affiliated or associated with bigfoot or subscribe to big foot's presence. UFO's portals to other dimensions theory. I've talked to two native American people who subscribed to theory of star people who can come and go between galaxies and the earth. You know I'm not I'm not seeing any of any of them are. Outlandish perhaps, but I'm not saying he was wrong. I don't know it. It's inevitable that the paranormal comes up when you start talking about these cases of course and bigfoot does make several appearances in your book Is there a relationship between as you say? People who are involved in the search or the you know seeking knowledge about a bigfoot and people who are actually investigating disappearances into the wilderness. Certainly what with the Jacob Gray? Story one of the largest ironies I that I came across, was that where the boundary of the park, so the Road Jacob turned off the one. Oh One highway in Washington state and entered the park. The closest private property there contains what we came to call. I call anyway. The bigfoot Barn that that is operated by some scientifically grounded bigfoot researchers. But they dedicated all of their resources into the search for Jacob Gray and they. They had GPS maps. They know those mountains perhaps better than anybody. They literally spend thousands of and hike hundreds of miles in the search for Jacob Gray. That wasn't completed with any kind of search for bigfoot. They had the skills and the resources to be the best searchers. You could possibly want, so they played a helpful role. What about psychics? They seem to play a big role in people disappear how how become involved? Sometimes they will reach out to families or law enforcement. Sometimes families will seek out the assistance of psychics. There are several involved in Jacob's case. You know some could argue that. One of them was close in in her vision for Jacob, but you know, and it's easy to dismiss the psychics, but I think what I saw with in terms of of Randy's family, Randy and his family was that you know sometimes the second vision will give the searchers hope you hit all these dead ends, and you don't know where you're gonNA. Search tomorrow. Sometimes the psyche can help with morale. So in the end, what happened to take gray? That's another mystery. Some MARMOT researchers were hiking off trail in at about five thousand feet in the Olympic mountains. In the park, they found a backpack and clothing and some skeletal remains and and a license, and so they it was Jacob and then it was verified by Rangers the next day. We don't know He. He was near the RIDGETOP. He well prepared I mean he had a lot of year still at the bike, but he had packed a lot more gear with him, so he was outfitted to survive there. You know the thing that gets assigned to most of these cases of hypothermia, but. The question still remains what led to suffering from hypothermia, right and another question that must remain certainly on on the minds of his father is why his son ventured up the mountain to begin with. Somebody in trouble typically will go down. They'll follow a creek drainage and they'll go down, and Randy told me from the I am Matty, said Jacob would go up and that's exactly what he did, but still it doesn't tell us. What he was doing there. You must have amassed quite a bit of knowledge about. Safety in wildlands and different parts of north, America I wonder what just to end off with where concern concerned. What would you advise? People who are thinking about going into the woods? Know. personal locator beacon is a great idea, but one thing I did learn is to not necessarily trust technology. I think the analog can be your friend. In these situations and become I never used to do this, but become a big fan of the windshield note at the trail head right down the time where you're going what your plans are in that under the windscreen, you know obviously you know your wife extra brother, Tex your friend, and then another analog thing that. That I picked up in the last several years. Researching this book is if I'm in a place with heavy vegetation, and it's hard to get my bearings Surveyor's tape and flag trees on my way in, and then just bread chrome my way back out and take the plastic tags out of the trees, but surveyor's tape is is the cheapest best piece of equipment I can recommend.

Washington state and southern Vancouver Island are home to a distinct population of killer whales called the southern resident orcas. Black. On top with contrasting white I and saddle patches each has its own distinctive markings. From may through October tourists flock to this region to see the southern residents revered for their social nature and strong family ties offspring remain with their mothers for all of their adult lives. But, lately, those lives are being cut short. cavs are dying before they're born or shortly afterwards. The plight of one mother Orca and her calf captured global media attention a few summers ago. Marine biologists are keeping a close eye on an endangered Orca off the waters around the southern Gulf islands. Named Talla J. Thirty five to researchers her calf lived only about thirty minutes but instead of letting it fall to the ocean floor Tala carried the dead calf pushing it around with her nose for an unprecedented amount of time and hundreds of miles researchers say the whales are known to grieve, but never for this many days Orca known as j thirty five is still carrying her baby seventeen days. Later, the mother is going through a deep grieving process, but since then the mother has been getting weaker and weaker as choice to carry, it's dead offspring above the water assigned, she may be experiencing difficult and complex emotions not so unlike our own. Scientists believe calf died of starvation. The incident was well documented by researchers like Paul Cotterell with the Department of fisheries and Oceans Canada. I was out for the whole two weeks and it was very very emotional to see. Just, that bond and hell mum was just so they're reluctant to to let go of the calf. Cattrall knows these whales well, he and other researchers have been closely documenting all three southern resident family pods known as J K and L. The DFO for twenty, three years these animals are photographed in did. All of them every year. So we know. All the animals and we also know. When calves are born and went animals die. So this population is a very well studied in very well understood. Researchers know that the ORCA food supply Chinook salmon is becoming smaller in size and there are fewer salmon being born mostly because of overfishing. And the wheels are having more trouble finding the salmon that is still around because of a dramatic increase in ship traffic in this area. Perhaps, the biggest challenge, these marine mammals face. From The Wall Street? Journal. This is the future of everything. I'm Janet. Baben today on the podcast. We head to the Pacific northwest to understand the obstacles that confront these endangered orcas and how researchers are using artificial intelligence to help orcas and humans to coexist. WHAT HAPPENED TO J thirty five or Tala wasn't an anomaly the southern resident cavs have been struggling to survive for some time they've been listed as endangered in both the US and Canada since the mid arts. But their numbers continue to fall in two, thousand five there were eight. Now there are just seventy two in the wild one lives in captivity. Their home waters in the sailor, see an elaborate network of channels that span the coasts of Seattle Vancouver from Olympia Washington in the south to the middle of Vancouver Island British Columbia in the north. The see encompasses puget sound the Strait of Georgia and the Strait of Juan De. FUCA. Much of it is rich in natural beauty and teeming with wildlife with rural shorelines backlit by tall evergreens and craggy. Hills. It's a magnet for nature lovers who crave inactive lifestyle, but the Pacific northwest has been getting crowded these paths few decades with people competing for space with the local wildlife as of two thousand twenty. Washington's population was nearly eight million and Vancouver's topped out at about two and a half million and is projected to grow. It's become a busy place. So you see things like Bald Eagles nesting next to satellite dishes in busy parking lots. Big. Ravens Beg for food next to cold press coffeeshops commuters hop on ferry boats here like people in other towns take the train or the car. On these trips they can sometimes spot the southern resident orcas milling about but a lot of the time the orchestra framed by ferry boats or container ships. The area's ports are growing along with the population. In twenty eighteen Porta Vancouver ship activity reached a record high and the port is undergoing numerous expansions. Increased. Commercial ship traffic on top of recreational boat activity is one of the biggest threats facing the whales that live here. This traffic causes numerous problems ships pollute the water, and they're loud under the waves. As we're about to find out the ocean is getting crowded and noisy, and it's negatively impacting the whales. Dr Lance Barrett Lennard is the director of the Marine Mammal Research Program at the Vancouver Aquarium. There's also a lot of heavy vessel traffic that comes in some of the going to the port of Vancouver some of the going to the port of Seattle unfortunately both both major west coast ports. have their roots running through. Southern Resident Critical Habitat. But the obvious problem he says is that more boats increase the chances that Wales will get hit. especially, if the boats are going fast. Whale is far less likely to be hit by ship that's running slow, and if it's running less than ten knots, a good chance to survive even if it is hit, that's just the facts. So regulators started issuing slowdown directives, it few areas these slowdowns are mandatory, but in the Pacific northwest or the orcas live, they remain mostly voluntary. Mariner say they want to avoid the ORCAS but there are business conflicts John? Berg. Is With Pacific, Merchant Shipping Association a Trade Group that represents about thirty shipping lines that do business along the Pacific coast. For a lot of ships. Schedule Integrity. Is. Paramount. and. So they need to be at a certain port at a certain day in a certain time. And so planning is essential especially since coming in late can mean higher fees and lost revenue. Mariners go back and forth about how quiet ships they talk about things like reducing noise by finding optimum speed or by retrofitting or upgrading vessels with more efficient quieter parts. They even say that in some cases slower vessels. Moore of Iraq. Now to researchers, this is a settled question, the faster ship the louder the ship. And it's the noise that is even more detrimental to the ORCAS than ship. Strikes. The underwater cacophony is mostly generated by ship's propeller. It releases vapor filled bubbles. ORCAS like all CETACEANS rely on echo location to communicate, made and find food. For ORCAS, it's how they find salmon as the ORCAS chase salmon they make clicking sounds that they send out into the ocean. The click then bounces off of the salmon and creates an echo, and that's how they know where the salmon are underwater noise pollution specialist. Dr Lindy Wildcard is an adjunct research associate at Dalhousie University in Halifax Nova Scotia Canada. CETACEANS are particularly vocal of the US sounds to find their prey actively using bio sonar. And the various noise sources that humans put into the ocean can affect. Wales and that they are masked, that is the sounds of interests are obliterated by by US adding this sort of acoustics smog of of noise so they can't hear as well. You can actually hear the masking that wildcard is talking about listen to this underwater recording of northern resident orcas who have different dialects from their neighbors, the southern resident or is this recording was provided by Orca lab a nonprofit research center based on Hanson Island near British. Columbia. Canada. Those. SQUEALS ARE ORCA calls. Here's what happens if you overlay their calls with recording of the ship underwater. It drowns out the ORCAS squeals. All you hear is ship noise. That's because the sound created by the ship is at the same high frequency ranges the ORCAS. It's kind of like being at a dinner party where people are talking over each other. But for the ORCAS, the increased sound means they'll lose their seat at the table. If the ORCAS can't hear themselves they can't hear the seminar and so they can't find food. And that can have far reaching impacts that affect the entire population. Their stress hormones can increase. with, noise with the seismic Airgun sounds they also reduce their vocalisations to the point of sometimes falling outright silent, which means they can't communicate with each other and that probably affects mating. If mayors could know where the ORCAS are. They could try to avoid that part of the ocean or at least slow down. So their engine noise doesn't drown the ORCAS OUT Ideally. They'd only have to go slow when the orcas were in the area, but it can be hard for ship captains to confirm where the whales are in fog rain or even under normal circumstances ship captains can't always see them they often miss them. So some conservationists along with the Canadian government installed underwater hydrophones in the Salish Sea along the coast of British Columbia near known ORCA HABITAT, they wanted to be able to track the ORCAS through their echo location calls. But remember how it works. Sound was drowned out by the ship's well, it's not just hard for the orchestra here. It's hard for the humans to. It can take people a long time to listen to all those recordings figuring out what is well sound, and what is this ship fish or other marine life sounds the orcas make noise at all hours of the day and night, and all of that sound even that record overnight has to be listened to by someone. Up. Next. How artificial intelligence can help speed this process up? And maybe find a solution for both the ships and the whales. When the world is at a standstill facts, can move us forward facts help us make decisions and bring us together. Even as we're apart the Wall Street Journal has the facts in these uncertain times get the latest on the coronavirus outbreak with free coverage of the crisis and its impact on the economy politics culture and daily life. Fine the clarity you need with America's most trusted news source visit wsj.com, and stay informed. The solution for the southern resident orcas that live off Vancouver and Seattle may have been found on the other side of the world in the rainforest on the Indonesian island of Borneo. There's so much happening there. This is Joe for White. He's the founder and CEO of Rainforest Connection The nonprofit uses big data to save critical forests sent endangered animals in the forest where you can't see more than twenty feet in front of you. Who could there's trees there sounds really the way that animals sort of gets the point across. White was on a trip to see fuzzy small apes called gibbons in Indonesia and Borneo about a decade ago the primates were losing their forest. Illegal logging. White joined government officials in the forest to listen for illegal loggers and found myself in the forest realizing that. Be of the most inefficient thing people could do which walking through the forest trying to find something that you know normally makes a lotta noise like chainsaws out in the middle of nowhere but it turns out that are nosy forest. It's still pretty hard to pick them out but computers is particularly good at picking sort of the the signal from the noise, and so I figured that this is a technical problem that could solve a larger issue for the people there on the ground. Whites background is in physics and software engineering sway thought artificial intelligence could pick out the chainsaw sound from the forest sound just as good. If not better than humans, he built an AI model the tracks sound in the rainforest using old cell phones perched in trees that notify locals in real time when they pick up chainsaws or other potential threats to the ecosystem. Whites model caught the attention of Matt Harvey a software engineer at Google Ai Harvey was working on an algorithm to identify humpback whales in more than a decade's worth of underwater recordings taken from a number of locations in the Pacific. Ocean. So yeah, we've collected data sets on many whale species especially backs orcas North Pacific right, whales. Gray whales and bowheads. So what we're working on now is to combine these different data sources a few months after the ORCA mom made headlines carrying her dead calf around for seventeen days harvey connected with Canada's Department of fisheries and oceans called the dfl in a similar program to detect southern resident orcas. So because the southern residents are under threat. This seemed like a good. Partnership to prioritize Harvey Thought, he could use rainforests connections platform to help him with logistics for the ORCA project. This project would not have happened without rainforests connection by the way. because. Google is not operating the platform for the alerting system part of the problem is not she learning? It's Collecting the data running the model on the data harvey designed Ai Program that auto detects southern resident ORCA calls from ocean sounds to teach the machine learning program to recognize the ORCA. Harvey and the team used audio from the Canadian hydrophones. They'd collected eighteen hundred hours of underwater audio and identified thousands of ORCA sounds. So I'm Paul Contrel the dfo fisheries and Oceans Canada remodel coordinator and I coordinate the REMEM- Response Network Cadre says, Canadian officials initially installed the hydrophones for number of reasons they wanted to document. Southern residents were going where they were feeding and also collect information about when they die. This really important for science to. Collect what information we can before Harvey created. The AI model cockerels team was going through reams of Ocean audio listening for Orca calls, but it's time consuming differentiate between the sound of an Orca and two boat. Harvey's model is able to speed the process up. Just stuck. In early March, I went to Vancouver to see the model in progress and Matt Harvey and Paul Qatra were there to it was the first time both of them had met since the I. Model became operational in January twenty nineteen. Tastes to meet you. Yeah Harvey wanted to see how the model was performing in the field. And we were all hoping to get a glimpse of the southern resident. ORCAS. So this is this is our site we gotta warehouse here, and it's our will we met up at the Whale Operation Center in an industrial section of Vancouver on an island in the center of the Fraser River near the sale we see. The team boat is docked nearby. Inside it's basically a big warehouse with all kinds of marine mammal research rescue gear. Cultural eager to show off. Collection, what's in here? So it's just all the equipment you'd need. Intercultural. Also shows US DFO's spare hydrophones. They run on batteries or solar power because they're often placed in isolated locations including a place called active pass. It's a favorite hangout spot for the ORCAS and it also gets a lot of use by the British Columbia. Ferry. System called BC ferry. And our main focus was active pass where we have a very narrow waterway and southern resident orcas do travel through their multiple times a year, and that's also where we have a lot of vessel traffic in really congested tight narrow waterway including BC ferries. So we wanted to be able to identify when the whales were approaching that area and when they were in there to. To see if we had a robust and reliable. Detection Program, and then we could let. Agencies like BC ferries no, and that they would then week to go in there the data is sent through wireless signals that all gets fed into the off center. We met over about and we'll just show you. There's our microwave dish that's the link. Our land based stations are all wireless and they'll beam to one center station this radar tower on main. Beams the signal here, and then it comes down into our whale ops opposition center on all those screens that you see. The core of the OPS center is a wall of big computer screens hungover cramped desks. The monitors are a physical display of the ocean sound coming through the I modeled the displays on the monitors called spectrum grams they use light and dark colors to represent different sounds in this case, orcas versus boat noise in the sale of see Matt Harvey explains how his model translates the ocean and Orca. into his. If you look at these things shapes emerge arcs for tonal sounds. Vertical lines for impulsive sounds, horizontal lines for continuous tones were noises, and if you look at enough of them and looking listen at the same time. You as a person can. Identify this. This is what the or can looks like this about looks like. There are lots of models, the tree neural networks to classify images like that's a cat or that's a house. But again, we're not talking about images here. We're talking about ocean sounds Harvey's model turns the Audio into images of time and frequency. So. Instead of heightened with of an image, you have time and frequency on on the other axis and the brightness of the Pixel is the intended. The sounds Harvey says for software engineer we've become really good at singling out whale species. How can you tell? Practice. humpbacks going to the. has a low pitched up sweeping whoop sound you out. ORCAS more like I. Don't know how to describe this squeal. Yeah. The wheels use other vocalisations chew that the model has learned to pick up. Here's how it's supposed to work. The MODEL is translating ocean sound into data that shown on computer screens. When it identifies what he thinks is an Orca it Ping's contrel and his team. So instead of waiting weeks and months or even years to know where the Orca have been cottrill and his team can confirm where they are right now. This artificial intelligence auto detect and program that actually can monitor these live streams hydrophones, and then when they detect a marine mammal or an Orca that they actually let us know through a mobile APP and also through the Internet by emailing us. Then identifies the ORCA call detections from the model. Eventually, the coastguard we'll have to alert commercial and ferry ship captains on a closed radio network, and then they'll have to slow their vessels down or change course to avoid the whales and reduce underwater noise. That's the theory. So here we are watching the model, do its thing turning the audio it's collecting from the hydrophones into. Matt explains what we're listening to. You can tell that that's not coming from an animal because it spanning all the frequencies. Some. Seems like we have a vessel in here to. From the yeah. that. San Harvey's pointing out the axis of the images, the time, the frequency, the higher amplitude, sound when all of a sudden. Heard something. there. Yes. So. This is not. The hydrophones pickup orcas in the sailors see. Again everyone on this trip is hoping for a chance to see these orcas even Harvey who says he tends to suffer from seasick. And contrel is happy to take us out on the water. What we're GONNA do is we'll suit up we'll get everybody. So who's all guttural Hans us all black dry suits waterproof neoprene protective gear that goes on over your clothes along with waterproof gloves we like to keep it defy people in. Equal. We leave the whale off center in head down to the research vessel docked nearby I'm expecting a big sturdy looking vessel like a coastguard style rescue boat. But no, we pile onto a twenty four foot rigid hull inflatable boat. It looks very small with very little protection from wind and water. WHAT'S UP Oh. Yes. Perfect. For Safety is. I'll yell secure secure is the safe secure secures the safe word. And we're off. The motor is powerful and the boat goes at a fast clip it has to because it's often used for marine mammal rescue emergency. The wind is bracing and sorry Matt Harvey but the ride is bouncy. Kind, of like riding elephant force. We keep our eyes peeled for or without also going to check on some of the hydrophones. Other. After a quick look we had out again toward a place called active pass. This is the place cottrill talked about earlier. It was the impetus for the entire hydrophone project we've been out searching for just about twenty thirty minutes. But this is Bo time and it feels a lot longer. Remember this early March. The wind is relentless the water frigid splashing on deck. I'm holding on. So tightly my arm start to ache. Just thinking well, this might be our day to see the as. We spot them. Corpus and across about one hundred years. Panna Clark hundred meters for sure. There's one right there. I see at least a dozen ORCA cadre accounts fifteen they're. Looking for food foraging together several hundred meters away. They rise up out of the water in unison. Most of the females all cluster together, and then two males follow the rest of the group. You can tell because they're bigger and they had these shockingly large street dorsal fins that glide up on top of the water when they service their explosive brats unleash atoll spray of seawater. Like I said, this part of the sailor sea is called active pass and it certainly lives up to its name. It's also a great example of how the I program can help these ORCAS. It's a narrow Strait of water about eighteen hundred feet across. Now that'd be sound wide but Canada, and US regulations require boats to keep thirteen hundred feet distance from any ORCA. That's a votes have little control if the ORCAS approached vote. So that leaves five hundred feet, not much room. When you consider that the ferries coming through here can be ninety wide and often cross paths through this narrow channel. A few minutes go by and a whale watching boat approaches the area other boats are nearby as well as we all enjoy the view of the ORCAS, a large very boat joins the crowd in the channel. With, the ferryboat here along with several other boats and the ORCAS, this narrow waterway is getting tight. So we'RE GONNA WE'RE GONNA head back now just so we get back in time and the weather's pretty good right now so And by pretty good in the Pacific northwest, that means partly cloudy decent visibility. This is notorious for its foggy overcast days and that can only add to poor visibility for ship captains trying to avoid the southern resident orcas. The situation illustrates how crowded the salish sea can get in parts. The increased underwater noise also intensifies as more ships crowd the area. It's this kind of ship traffic that Cottrell says Google is auto detection program could help to mitigate you know. One of the main thrust is to pass to make sure we know when wheels are approaching. And again. With the the program, the auto detection that helps of knowing when they're when they're coming in to be able to notify. groups that that they're there. So we can work with them and they they want to work with us so. We're getting to the level where we can actually Make sure that there's minimal impacts on the whales win they're in a pass. These, waters will likely stay crowded whale watching boats make their money by following the ORCAS and ferries need to stay on schedule or passengers could bulk. But with only seventy two left researchers say losing just one southern resident orca would impact the entire populations chances of survival. Listening to the southern resonant with the help of artificial intelligence could provide hope for this population. Regulators can no with more certainty where the ORCAS are and help ships to avoid them the Google AI coastguard alert notifications were supposed to be up and running this summer, but the program's been delayed cottrill says because of the corona virus. For many researchers there is a sense of urgency around how to more quickly protect marine mammals, globally efforts or even underway to explore rudimentary attempts to communicate more directly with marine mammals instead of just listening. On the next episode of the future of everything how researchers are using technology to establish foundational communication with marine mammals.

I think we should change the headline on on this one. It's a. it's a pretty metal headline for a a weird and not super metal story. You know i would. I would argue ben That we double down. And just just simplify and just call it war pig. You know what. Actually i am sold on that. And and since our better third super producer. Casey peg room is on adventures today. Classes out man. And you know. I gotta tell you. I think super producer. Casey program would super approve of the title war pig. Because i don't know if you noticed but he is a devout ozzy osbourne Fanatic are you kidding. It's like the only thing he talks about off just won't shut up about you. Know ironman ironman rate song of all time black sabbath. He's always like he's always pulling the actually's about black sabbath and he's like. Did you know they were actually a blues band. I and casey. I know and actually it wasn't. It was a dove. That ozzy bit the head off of not a not a rat. I obviously we are totally putting words in subaru easter. Casey peg rooms mouth But i imagine that he feels okay about black sabbath. Maybe i us some ozzy's latter day stuff got a little samey but i think his legacy is safe overall. He's also the father the weird kind of drunk uncle of reality television. Well you know one thing. I will say about k. C. is As funny 'cause future. Casey is editing. This one thing i will say about him is a lot of people. Don't know this but all of casey's many tattoos are direct references to black sabbath. So if you ever meet casey in person and you wanna get on his good side ask him about his and god forbid you meet him in a dark alley my friends and by the way. Casey is editing this and presumably rolling his eyes really hard right now We love you casey. We're just we're just giving you a hard time But you know Speaking of reality television The list today story has the kind of like early. Makings of the kind of drama. We absolutely live for in reality. Tv you know. It's got the conflict. It's got the simmering resentment you know. It's got the overreaction and ultimately got the kind of Not not too much of a spoiler alert but the kind of anti-climactic ending. Yes yeah if this were an episode of reality tv it would literally be called the pig episode and we could call it in war pig. But this is also known as the pig war or The san juan boundary dispute. This is weird. You're kidding about the pig episode. That is an official title of this This story as well. Yeah that's correct this. This is a weird one so a folks. You may be aware of the time that the uk went to war with what would become known as the united states in what we call the revolutionary war. But did you know the us and the uk almost went to war again. A due to a series of ridiculous events that began in eighteen. Fifty nine on an island called san juan island. San juan island has nothing to do with puerto rico at all. It is a chunk of land located between the us and vancouver island at the time. This place was home to settlers from the us and two british employees of the hudson bay company. What on earth you guys talking about. You may ask. Where's the pig Will will tell you about this. Strange series of events by the way you may have heard of the hudson bay company. They occupied Some kind of rarefied space in in the business world in that they were around in the eighteen hundreds and continues to be around today. They started off as a for trading company and then in two thousand six still a thing. were acquired by the well known entrepreneur american businessman jerry sucker for one point. One billion dollars It originally was a canadian owned company and that is very much the case in today's story. That's right that's right. So let's let's take a closer look at san. Juan island stood would way way way way way way way way. Before the arrival of europeans san juan island had its own thriving community and culture. It had a temperate climate. The soil was great. Had tons of resources marine timber especially and this bountiful land appealed to spain. Great britain and the us each of these empires each of these forces explored and charted and mapped to named the islands while they were staking. Overlapping claims to oregon county oregon county. You'll recognize day. As the present states of washington oregon idaho and then parts of montana wyoming and british columbia as well. I know you might be saying wait. Spain spain's in the mix will spain scan in the mix in terms of the name of the island but they had abandoned their claims by eighteen. Eighteen i think that's right They took off and left it to the english and the americans who formed a joint in eighteen eighteen. Which you know. It seemed nice enough at the time but to me the idea of joint occupation Between former bitter rivals Does seem to not necessarily have the longest term prospects In my opinion seems like somebody would have red flagged that but you know i guess it was a lucrative enough Deal that it made sense for both of them to play nice and apparently they were able to do that. They lived in relative harmony You know with Subjects of each shire. America doesn't have subjects citizens of the us and subjects of the british empire jointly occupied this land farming for grazing right Because again the the soil is very rich so it made for some good livestock grazing as well And also if you look at a map of this area and this is something we'll dive into a little bit later and stage show. You'll see that. San juan island in particular has a lot of strategic values. So of course you want. If you're the uk or the us at this time you want to control that spot you know resources aside you want to be able to be a gatekeeper. They're for transport so pension start to mount as he said no yes there are trade agreements. Yes there's heavy investment Between both of these nations both these countries but over oregon county the us forces think the british presence is offensive. Inherently profoundly fundamentally so because they're laboring under the concept of manifest destiny. This land is our land long story short. It right you kind of nailed it i. It is a grand idea right but it also sort of you know. doesn't really think of others. Let's say it's sort of like you know we're gonna do what we're gonna do. Anybody else's interests be damned. Would you say that that's about the size of it. Yeah yeah you're right and also manifest. Destiny is a kind of american exceptionalism. It was this widely held belief in the eighteen. Hundreds nineteenth century. Us that there was some sort of predestination. Some sort of Like it was the fate of the american people to expand across the continent because they were inherently special inherently different and somehow exceptional in comparison to the rest of the world. British people included. Sorry your majesty. The thing is the british did not agree as you might imagine. They believe that they had a legal rights to these lands because of earlier treaties and earlier established activity of the hudson's bay company which was a canadian company which was under the oversight of the british crown. Yes yeah just so now. These internal differences Feelings of superiority. Aside on june fifteenth eighteen. forty six in london. They signed the treaty of oregon and the treaty of oregon. Did something really important really important. But as we'll see especially helpful The the treaty of oregon sets the boundary. I'll on the forty ninth parallel so from the rocky mountains to quote the middle of the channel which separates the continent from vancouver's island end quote then south through the channel to the strait of juan de fuca and west to the pacific ocean. Seems clean enough until you you know. Get on the ground ray or even like look at a a detailed enough map Is find that. There's a band from athens. I don't know if they're still active. The it was called wanda fuca. And i never knew what that was a reference to. So here you go. Here's the thing like you said been there there. Was you know where the rubber met the road. A bit of an issue. The san juan islands were in between vancouver island and the mainland meaning that because of this geographical situation there was actually a channel on either side and the treaty did say which side was the actual border exactly. So what he votes janelle. There's literally to channel which one you gotta do better. We'll wonder word if it's you is gonna pick right perfect storm for You know a a a a massive arguments and pissing contest especially super legalistic. People right and diplomats negotiators. Yeah so there are two possibilities here. One something called the herro straight h. a. r. o. And something called. The rosario strait the san juan islands. Right smack dab Between these and both sides round up on their mapping of the forty ninth parallel and both sides say well. Actually this part is ours will snatch this part. The first claims from the hudson's bay company come back in eighteen forty five. They're based at fort victoria. And they claimed san juan island Which was only seven miles across the harrow straight by eighteen fifty one. They had established a some pretty strong industry. They're like eighteen fifty one there. They've got these salmon curing stations But then the us also enters the chat as we would say in the modern day by eighteen fifty three. The usa claim to the east as possessions that were part of what they called the washington territory so then what follows is like another back and forth people trying to get more diplomatic street credit for their claim to the islets and hudson bay companies. Establishing sheep farms are a sheep farm rather bellevue Sheep farm that's along the island's southern And this weirdly. I've never really thought of sheep as being a tool of political macintoshes but this was just so It was a politically motivated move because the island's climate and like we said that the soil and the conditions were ripe for for grazing And the flock expanded from thirteen hundred and sixty nine individual cheapies to more than four thousand five hundred That were scattered across the island. Yeah and while this is happening people in the us who are looking to migrate and settle elsewhere on the continent. They're all hearing about this. Great review of the san juan islands by something called the northwest boundary survey. A these naturalists are saying. You know what's great if you're looking for a new place to live. Hey this land is your land right. Come over to this awesome island. You got all the fish and want. The soil is great. The climate is surprisingly Awesome and it's a backtrack ever so slightly. You know when. I said that the the sheep farm move was politically motivated. I mean a lot of this stuff was politically motivated. I it was. It was like making the case for their claim by saying well. We established the sheep farm. This time And it's it's profitable or whatever Or even if it wasn't profitable just the establishment of all of these various stations In their minds at least you know. Kind of upped the ante as far as validity of their claim was concerned so By the spring of eighteen fifty nine we had eighteen. Americans settling on claims that were state on some of these really top Sheep grazing lands And they believed that because of the us's involvement in their kind of Handling of the situation that they would be supported by the us government the us government would recognize their claims as valid But the british Not only didn't recognize their claim they believe them to be illegal And considered the claimants to be trespassers on their prime sheep. Grazing land even refer to them as squatters and this really started to Escalate this simmering resentment that we were talking about from the start right. Yeah that's that's the thing so from the british perspective these folks are illegal immigrants. You know what. I mean i now. Of course we have to point out the tremendous hypocrisy of the british and the us forces saying that of people are illegally occupying land. Especially when you consider the native population that was living in north america for thousands of years so here we are both the. Us and britain claimed the islands are their own settlers from both countries have been living and working on these islands in this area and they got along well enough. Which is odd when you think about it. Because i was trying to think of like a an impactful day-to-day kind of example or analogy here. Like imagine folks if my powell knoll rented an apartment. Let's a landlord. Nah i rent out an apartment two notes. But then i rent out an apartment two. Casey is the same apartment. These guys are friends right but they both say. I own this apartment you know. Why are you always hear. Why are you bringing people. Casey shows up with a thousand plus sheep and all is like. Hey dude you can come over but just to be straight with you. This is my apartment. The tension rises as newell said and it reaches a head exactly thirteen years after the signing of the oregon treaty on june fifteenth. Eighteen fifty nine. There's a guy we have introduced called lyman cutler. He is a farmer and he sees this large black pig a bore rooting in his garden. His neighbour on the other side of his fence is an irishman named charles griffin charles griffin is watching this pig route through cutler's crops and he's he's laughing about it he's like yes only going get them and then cutler's pretty p. Owed about this. So he takes out his rifle and he shoots. The pig problem is his neighbor. Owns the pig and charles griffin sometimes called charles griffith. He's not a us immigrant. he's a british subject and he is an employee of hudson's bay. Yeah he he was and i. you know. There's there's part of me that can understand his righteous indignation here. I suppose especially given the flaring tensions of because of this. Kind of stalemate situation But also he was known for letting his pigs roam around the land Whether that was like a f- you kinda middle finger flex to to the other inhabitants who were not british subjects. I have to imagine that this affected other neighbors of his that were british subjects. So doesn't sound like the most considerate neighbor to be sharing this plot of land with so it's highly likely that his pigs had messed around both in cutler's land before and in others Cutler's land admittedly was surrounded by a three fence according to some official complaints That are around So you know they let. Things simmer for a minute and tempers cooled down cooler heads prevailed and all that and cutler offered in what he clearly thought was a very magnanimous gesture and probably very generous. One considering you know we can inflation calculator this. Probably but he offered to pay ten dollars. for the pig for the life of the pig after the fact postmortem So what would that be ten dollars. B in eighteen fifty nine ten dollars. Casey hit with that sound q. Poop poop poop poop boop in eighteen fifty nine ten dollars would be the equivalent of about three hundred and fifteen bucks today if you are wondering what. The average cost of a pig is The average price of a pig under eighty pounds is two hundred and thirty bucks. Roughly so so ten dollars would have been you know a pretty reasonable thing but griffin for one reason or another wasn't having an instead. He demanded not ten dollars but a hundred dollars. Oh my gosh see that clearly again knowing what we know about the the inflation the rate of inflation there. Clearly i would say three hundred dollars for a pig even by today's standards seems about right. Don't you feel like it's fair. Especially it's the pig was the aggressor the pig was indeed the aggressor so this Doubling down this one hundred dollars seems designed to cause a problem right And it did. Because cutler doubled down in return by saying what you said. Ben the pig. I shouldn't have to pay anything. I was being generous to offer you ten dollars. Your pig was rooting around in my cabbage. Patch or whatever And i shouldn't have to pay you a dime. Your your animal was trespassing on my land. Oh that's where we get into right. My land trespassing. These types of terms are very charged. Us yeah i. I suspect there was something Some ulterior motive here man. Because i the claim about the land. You're right that's a powder keg but secondly that's a crazy price for pig. Isn't it somme unless it was like you know babe pig in the city or you know wilbert could do tricks and stuff Caliber some pig Yeah this is absolutely a number. That was designed to infuriate Because if we run that handy dandy inflation calculator one more time. Beep beep boop we get the exorbitant number of three thousand one hundred fifty one dollars and fifty nine cents. This pig better. You know poop gold and do backflips and possibly recite epic poetry For that amount. Yes i mean maybe griffith was you know. Maybe it was like his prize pet pig. Maybe they had a deep relationship. That can have sex pig. I'm not implying that. I i was thinking more in motion elite charged familial bonds you know a man in his pig so bend. You're not talking me down for my My possibility there certainly certainly not going to entertain it bourbon. This episode is brought to you by t mobile.

Well so do banks and that's why they're going hybrid with ibm a hybrid. Cloud approach helps them personalized experiences with watson. Ai while helping keep data secure it's more reward. Less risk from banking to manufacturing businesses going with a smarter hybrid cloud using the tools platform and expertise of ibm. The world is going hybrid with ibm go hybrid at ibm dot com slash hybrid cloud so this disagreement spreads around the very small community on the island and the hcc bay company employees obviously go full in supporting griffin or griffith and the families from the us on san juan there about twenty five at this time they of course have colors back one hundred percent so british forces threatened to arrest this farmer to rest cutler. His neighbors go ham. That's terrible but they you know they go wild and so they call the us military and they say look knees. british forces are basically invading us. They have no authority here. An uncle sam is like you're absolutely right you twenty-five families on this island. Let's send in the troops so both governments end up sending their militaries to san juan islands. Yeah yeah So now not only is the island occupied by Warring families i mean. I don't know this. it's certainly possible. That many of them stayed out of it and that they just wanted to let go about their business. But i can imagine the taking of sides probably took place. Because like you said. Ben this The kerfuffle kind of began to circulate. And i'm just picturing you know the susser of of discontent circulating between the two factions the brits and the yanks and bring in joint military occupation And and that sounds like a real recipe for disaster with already That reality tv show level resentments 'bout to boil over absolutely the. Us forces dispatch sixty six soldiers from the ninth infantry regiment to san juan this detachment is under the command of a kind of hot had. A guy by the name of george pickett hailing from virginia. Just four years after this pick it would lead a while. He would help lead the disastrous infantry charge from the rebel forces into the center of union lines at the infamous battle of gettysburg. But now for years before gettysburg pickett's unit lands on july twenty seventh eighteen fifty nine and they set up camp near the wharf that is occupied by hudson's bay company griffin bay. It's just north of that sheep form That you had mentioned earlier. Knoll and the regional authorities. The british authorities are freaked out understandably. Because they're like. Hey we claimed this island reich's nobody really figured out. The problem with those two straights. Ed in the problem of that forty ninth parallel so british authorities are asking themselves why and blue blazes away. Maybe an accident while the us troops on our island and then he call in three warships. So if you're just like your point about some people probably just staying out of it. Some people probably just wanted to fish or to you know. Live their life on the island farm. This hell of a week. This is crazy. I think there should be a theme for animal crossing based on this story. That's a beautiful idea that be fun hundred percent on board. Yes sir. it's totally. I mean really what is animal crossing if not this situation kind of under a microscope. It's all of these different You know anthropomorphic creatures supposedly trying to live together in harmony and i. I'm sure there are a little cutesy. You know disagreements that pop up. I don't really play the game. But how fun would it be for there to be light for someone to stage a reenactment of this story on the animal crossing is I i think we should. We should reach out nintendo with our brilliant idea But the people that were there now. Things are really off the rails. Not only is there. This disagreement that has turned into a low key military occupation. Now you have these. Us troops that are moving in and a thirty one. Gun steam frigate a frigate. I love that word by the way. I also love the word warf- And that frigate in question is the h m s tribune which was sent to knock pick it off. his has high horse but also with instructions to avoid out and out war. Yeah they're supposed to avoid a war because a war between the us and the uk at this time could quickly become a global event right and it would. it would certainly be something that would consume the entire continent of north america. So in a euphemistic way you could say the hms tribune was sent there to Just flex maritime muscle and inspire picket to move somewhere else. The tribune's backed up by these other two ships we mentioned they are the hms satellite and the hms plumper. Which is ridiculous. They've looked ship doral. That's an animal crossing worship. And these are each ships. The pack heat They also have forty six royal marines in the mix fifteen royal engineers pick it is unmoved uninspired a to continue the euphemism so instead of withdrawing he writes to his superiors for help and During this time for the rest of july and then into august as well both groups are both groups are acquiring more support the british requiring more royal marines Many of whom are battle hardened. We're talking about people who had Stormed beaches in china not too long ago and on the us side pick. It is concerned with just putting more feathers in his own cap. He he's thinking. I'm already low key famous because of my deeds in the mexican war. This is a chance to make myself even more of a prominent american hero. He is threatening is like squawk and left and right. He's threatening the british on their ships. He's tag them. He say you're going to have another bunker hill if you guys try to land on the island. This land is our land. He probably said Sincerely without a note of irony this How does that old singer this This something will not just aggression will not stand there is do you think any american general ever just like aggressively said the words manifest gesture and then slam their fists down on the table. I hope so. I definitely hope so. Seems like something they would do. So this profoundly offense. The british guy named james douglas. He's governor of the vancouver island colony and he orders the british news. Commander rear admiral robert bangs to land marines on the island. Get your house in order. He's saying he's he's smacking that table to your example and say this aggression will not stand says. This is a british. Islet you get in there. You reassert british control and huge credit huge shout to rear admiral baynes because he diplomatically refuses and he cites the reason that we mentioned earlier he said you know if we push this too. Far with all due respect governor we could end up in a war. And that's the last thing anybody wants. There's something amazing about people who are able to possess that clarity of thought when everything is going south and getting into this You know this vortex of bad decisions and Reactionary thought this guy. The admiral is the one of the first people in the story. Who says should we start a world war should we start. Another revolutionary war Over this guy's pig you know. Even if he loved the pig defined love you know. Y- hundred percents. Oh okay. I was a callback Has text ex pig I feel like we're overlooking slightly out loud The idea or the fact that many huge-scale wars are caused by some little minute. Tipping point event some larger than others obviously the assassination of archduke. Franz ferdinand and all of that Ben you're more of the International affairs expert than me. But i think you would agree. That huge scale Conflicts often result from small scale events. Yeah or triggered by. Obviously it's not the only thing it's based on a huge runup to that thing and that's the straw that breaks the you know the the camel's back or whatever. Yeah that's a really good point. Not because we see that multiple factors lead to wars and the thing that becomes the catalyst that malcolm glad will ask tipping point. That can be a relatively small thing. It's just it becomes somehow symbolic of the accumulation of those other factors and variables leading to a conflict. You are absolutely right so it on the us side. He gets reinforcements. One hundred seventy one men under the command of lieutenant colonel silas. Casey arrive on august tenth. And they go to victoria. And they talk to rear admiral. Baynes they say okay. This is reasonable guy. There's something so. Surreal and almost like dr strangelove about this. How these highly regarded military leaders have to meet up to figure out whether or not they're going to war over this dispute from these neighbors and so much i mean we we use the word diplomacy But so much of it has to do with personalities and has to do with these microaggressions. You know what. I mean like the idea of someone being unreasonable or pushing. Someone too far even just conversational like so. Many decisions are made based on that kind of calculus or it'd be one would hope not by the better more Strategic generals but we know that based on the amazing satire that dr strangelove Some of these things can be quite arbitrary and based on ego and posturing. Oh yeah and you know. I think posturings should be the word of the day on today's episode because this is what follows now is all about posturing show of force right. The the guy. We've mentioned earlier. Lieutenant colonel casey. He goes to meet with baynes and baynes by the way. Baines is another battle hardened veteran he been in the battle of new orleans eighteen fifteen. He's got a on board ship. The angie's it has eighty four guns. And when when casey gets to baynes sees the ship he calls on calls on Baynes and says hey. Will you come meet us at this. Lighthouse and baynes says No strike you know. I learned a thing or two in my Days of war and days of your. I don't know if he's excellent freestyle like that but he says look. I'm not leaving my ship. I and then. Casey looks at the ship. And he's thinking while this is intimidating this. This ship is huge. So he goes back to san juan and he sends word to say like we need more people. We need reinforcements. If we're really gonna do this. We're really going to go to war over some territorial claims and over this you know hapless unfortunate pig then i need firepower. This episode is brought to you by.

I there were four hundred and sixty one. Americans camped out in the woods. North of that sheep farm we mentioned which hilariously referred to earlier as belvieu. Because that's clearly a thing. It is in fact bellevue There was a an errant e. Had just dropped off of our notes. And those troops were protected by fourteen giant cannons known as field cannons not to mention the thirty two pound naval guns. That were taken off the us massachusetts and installed under the guidance of second lieutenant. Henry m robert So the americans were absolutely digging in their heels and the british were over conducting drills with their fifty two total guns. Yep there's the posturing so they would They would shoot nearby learned. This is something we see sometimes with modern day. Military exercises right. You're going into for instance the south china sea. And you're like oh we're just making sure battleships are ready. We're just doing that in front of you. Everyone be cool. We're we're practicing. This one doesn't count so that that's what they're doing. This is maybe the most american part of the story. A tourist get involved fine. It's like you have people This is so weird. This happens in other north american conflicts throughout history tourists. Start traveling to the area from victoria. And they they say like. Hey let's let's go watch. Let's go watch the military drill. Do you think there will be a war this ridiculous. This is very interesting. Because i can't believe i never occurred to me sooner at least as like a good sketch. Shirley like monty python kind of situation. The idea of war tourists. Obviously we have conflict reporters that are civilians. That are you know embedded in in war zones and there to do a job. But how come. We don't think about like the the absurd concept of a family wearing hawaiian shirts and eating popcorn. Like touching down in sarajevo or whatever to watch the fireworks. Yeah yeah it may have fallen off a bit in the modern day to do an episode about it because it was a thing it was definitely a thing and tourism messed up. It was considered a spectacle happened in europe. Pretty frequently too. So there's something else here. And and i love the this points out how absurd these conflicts can become. There's something very like vonnegut esque about this. The officers from both sides both the british and the us they go to church together like wild. These tensions are mounting. The they go to church aboard the satellite on the also go to the irish guy. Charles griffin charles griffiths home and they hang out and they get kind of lit they drink whisky and smoke cigars. But there's still like after that right. Like after their hang out sessions with the lord or with whisky and cigars after those hangout sessions. They're like okay. We're going to go back door post. Let's hope we don't start a war tomorrow are you to. He's not gonna do it. Okay see your monday. No that's what i'm saying that. These moments the the idea of these. Like military leaders lounging around together with their whisky and cigar. Reminds me of another stanley. Kubrick movie actually called paths of glory. Which isn't quite as heavily satirical as dr strangelove. But it's very difficult for something to be because that one is just over the top you know to to steal your word. Cartoonish -ly satirical but paths of glory involves World war one. I wanna say Trench warfare hardcore where these generals very callously make the decision to send troops on an utter suicide mission. And they do it while lounging in this like french villa drinking brandy and smoking cigars. So that's kind of the the callousness that i'm talking about terrible and so these you know we don't. It's lost to history. We don't know how chill these folks were when they were actually hanging out or if they were just sort of checking the cultural boxes. Right of going to church of being officers holding parlay But we do know for the rest of that summer. The officers and forces on both sides were playing chicken. Basically they were trying to get the other side to fire the first shot because then anything they did would be an active defense right so they would not be quote unquote the bad guys. This was going to go sideways very easily. You know what i mean forget. A france ferdinand another pay. Getting shot could have possibly put. Us and the uk into a state of war luckily officials from both nations find out about this when news of the crisis reaches washington in late august. Here's the other absurd thing about this. The officials from britain and the us had no idea what was happening in san juan. Because the whole time the forces there in oregon county have been like They had been asking their superiors for reinforcements but they were asking their regional superiors. You know what i mean. No one was talking to the british monarchy. No one was talking to the. us presidency. President james buchanan. When he finds out about this he has a oh snap. This could be bad moment. And so he sends a general named winfield scott's to investigate and he says look general. You need to go there and you need to make these people calm down because we don't want to be in another war Had a history about of this. He had a resume. He had east tensions onto other border speech. Yeah something of like a hostage. Negotiator type vibe. Or like a dog whisper but like for troops So buchanan was already up to his neck in trying to prevent a war on another front between the northern and southern states of the united states And saw this whole kerfuffle on the island as an absolute waste of time so he wanted to do whatever it took to shut it down. and winfield scott You know with his certain set of skills was his best. Hope i think right so. He sailed down through panama. Took him six weeks. He got there In october And started chatting with douglas Via currier And the to arranged for each Leader each representative of each nation to withdraw their troops leaving a single company of troops from each side. There and one worship One british worship anchored in the bay. Yup so peace upon you san juan islands. This joint military occupation lasts another twelve years during that twelve years. There is no shot fired over time. Of course these occupying troops were talking about a hundred dudes on each side these occupying troops. They become buddies their coworkers. At you know they're go workers at this point they get together. They celebrate the holidays They even even play some sports games. after thirteen years of sometimes stilted negotiations held up in part by the civil war The us britain agreed to allow a nother party to come in like a third party to help solve the dispute over san juan island and that third party they choose is the ruler of a brand new nation. Newly-established station called germany rulers. A kaiser wilhelm good kaiser roll. I wish your favorite type of bread. Ben i you know i thought about this a lot. It's very difficult to choose every selling become obsessed with submarine sandwiches An i'm doing some some really Intriguing experiments a ridiculous story. You may or may not know this but by long-suffering colleagues have had to listen to me become obsessively wrapped up in different food experience. Like a case it is not purpose. Lana purpose you got me Yeah so it's tough to choose the kaiser's not named after the brett anybody who's watching accidents fortune. Perhaps the other way around i eh. Perhaps this was the favourite but a but a kaiser is a is a is a post right. It's like a it's basically like a general or or emperor or something right. Yeah the german emperor got it or the head of the holy roman empire emperor of austria. Or of course a round soft roller brad with a crisp crust. I like a nice crusty baguette. Or you wanna go completely different route. A brioche There's this. I tried this bread that is croissant bread. It's like a loaf of presponse also bread. It's pretty good man. Get layers in there. The air pockets Then you know sucker for tuscan garlic loof anyway anyway. The kaiser forms a commission on october twenty first eighteen seventy two. They announce their ruling and they rule in favor of the us which means the established that boundary from the oregon treaty To go through herro straight. And this is why the san juan islands are part of the us today. This is the final boundary between canada. And the us. It's it's finally set november twenty fifth eight hundred seventy two. The royal marines finally move from their cap. And you know. I'm speculating here. Knoll but it was a little bittersweet because people have become friends. And they're like what are kickball league bro. Don about the dead pigs that caused a near military catastrophe. It's about the friends that we made along the way exactly. And that is why. The only casualty in the entirety of this conflict was that one incredibly unfortunate pig. If you're in the area why not swing by the san. Juan island national historical part. You can still visit the site of both the british and american camps and fun fact it is the only united states national park where a foreign flag is regularly hoisted over united states soil. And that is because both the flag and the flag pole were a- gift from the british government as a sign of the friends. We made along the way you know. There's one thing that haunts me about this. It's just one thing. What was the name of the pig you know. It's a good question. Then we'll have to just name him in our hearts Have to let you know what let's all. Let's just keep it to ourselves like a wish secret. Wish when you throw a penny in fountain and we'll all just secretly name the pig in our hearts because that's where he lives now as where he resides If you don't wanna keep in your hearts and you wanna give us your best Your best names for this Unfortunate but historically important pig We love to hear you can tell us about it online where you can find us. At our facebook page dicusss historians. You can also find us on social media not just as a show but as individuals that's correct. You could find me exclusively on instagram.

Six forty. or on the radio up Brian suits. Here for our three Warhol Alex the site of the only place. In World? War. Two were enemy bombs hit the United States for on the southern slope of Mount Emily. Here in Brookings Oregon. With the dogs and I know it's covid nineteen and it's Day nine thousand. Of Safer at home but it was a fun road trip, right? Yeah. Actually was kind of fun. It's fun sleeping. Isn't it? Yeah. All right. We're GONNA walk about, half a mile. Up Mount Emily. To the place where the only bombs in World War Two landed on American soil. If I had been standing where am right now on the southern slope of Mount Emily on the morning of September ninth nineteen forty two. I might have been dead. This is the the a pretty amazing story of a chapel of Nobuo Fujita the Japanese pilot. WHO launched get this from a submarine And executed a plan of his own design. Noble Sajida was born in one thousand, nine eleven in a farming, prefecture Of Japan. A poor farm boy he was conscripted by the Japanese navy in one thousand, nine, hundred, thirty one when he reached the age of twenty. And after BOOT camp, he was sent to flight school. So, he goes to flight school and he's assigned to fly. Flying Boats. Fabius aircraft. The Japanese were very big on those and World War Two. And he flies in China of course, China was occupied with Japanese by the mid. Thirties. And he flies rescue missions on the Yangtze River for a wounded Japanese soldiers they they medivac them by flying boat. And by nineteen, thirty, seven, he's test flying a new seaplanes and things like that, and then he also becomes a flight instructor. So. In nineteen, forty, one, the imperial, Japanese Navy. Begins to commission a new type of submarine. A unique class of submarine called the tight be. and. The type BS were huge we had nothing like them. the the Germans had nothing like them. The Japanese made these massive submarines that the other world powers between World War One were to had just dismissed making gigantic submarines the Japanese power ahead. And they said, we're going to make gigantic submarines though they'll be faster than. American submarines, German submarines, British submarines. So. Sure enough. The tight bees were eleven hundred ton submarines huge submarines they went faster than the American Gato class. they went nearly twenty four knots. and one of the reasons they were so heavy was because on the deck just ahead of the conning tower. They had a hangar. You heard me right they had a hangar. The hangar housed a single float plane. A e one four Y Yokosuka e one for why it was a two person low wing monoplane with a pair of floats. was assembled and put in the hangar. And when the concept was when the submarine needed reconnaissance, but if it needed a scout to find targets it would surface and a bunch of enlisted guys would scramble atlas. Sub. And they would the hanger and they would assemble an airplane. Cockpit tail wings, and floats a good crew could do this in about fifteen minutes. And so by nine, hundred, forty, one, the imperial Japanese navy started needing. Pilots with experience landing on water well. Incomes are Guy Nobuo Fujita. not only did he test the very floatplane that the submarines were going to deploy, but he had almost more experience than anybody else. And so the the type B submarine, the I twenty five is where he was assigned and he was Crestfallen. Because, he knew that war was coming and that he would not be unabomber or terp Edo aircraft or a fighter he would be flying floatplane doing the non combat duty of reconnaissance for a submarine he'd get. The glory. If he found his ship and the submarine sank, it he might get his name with an asterisk about the captain would would get the credit. So the December nineteen forty one attack happens the I twenty five. Finds itself. on the end of who by about one hundred miles their mission. is to look for any stragglers. Any American ships that might have escaped Pearl Harbor. And a torpedo them they don't see any. they don't hear a shot fired in anger for all of December seventh nineteen forty one kind of a bummer. They do surface and launch the aircraft Nobuo Fujita flies around doesn't see anything and then lands. So this by the way, this is sort of the concept. Is that the sea plane lands adjacent to the submarine. and then they hoisted back up on the deck and the crude guess assembles it and puts it back in the hangar. In backwards order. And then seals a hanger. Again, the hanger is sort of a pill shaped appendage. Attached to the Conning Tower, the submarine and obviously it's waterproof right? So that was the the concept and the Japanese mastered it. No one else did this the Russians played with it. The Germans pooh-poohed the idea, the United States let it get off the drawing board, but the Japanese between the wars realized well, if a submarines job is to go somewhere undetected. Then why not take advantage of that and when it surfaces have, it launched a plane. but the plane was going to be for scouting purposes well. On September Ninth Nineteen Forty Two There was a far different plan than just checking out. The the American positions and I'll tell you Tell you about the. the plot that led to. The bombing of American soil right here on September ninth nine, hundred, forty, two as I'm out of. California. just for a day. But back right after this on warhol since our number three, the dark secret place Bryan suits here on Kfi am six forty live everywhere on the iheartradio APP. F I. Am six forty live everywhere on the iheartradio APP Brian Suits here darts secret place our number three. For the Warhol Hollick's on this site where I am. In the middle of the safer at home stay in California don't drive anywhere. Shakedown I'm on the slopes of Mount Emily in. Oregon. Just. East of Brookings is a great road trips. I think that everybody can do from southern California's. Just load the kids in the car and then Head up one one. And when you get a little north of Santa Barbara stay on the pch as one one goes inland to to slow and. PASA believes in and all that stay on the PCH and go in and out of those coves you know it's a beautiful drive from from Ventura County north. On the On the PCH. Go through San Francisco don't stop. The too much Pu. and then then you have to get back on the one on one it's hard to access the coast, but as you get closer to northern California, on the one on one. It goes out to the Pacific and you go through Fort Bragg. California and then as you get through. To Crescent, city, keep heading north. And of course, you go through Fort Dick I'm not making that up there really is a place called Fort. Dick Kelly. right. As you get past Fort Dick, you cross into Oregon and the next town that you hit. US Brookings. When you get to Brookings head. East. You'll get on a forest service road if you care to stay at the emily ranch bed and breakfasts. Lovely people very nice. Great pancakes. My daughter loves it. And then go to mount emily. There's forest service roads that can get you up on the slopes of Mount Emily, which is where I am right now. and. We're here because as I said, in the last break on September ninth nineteen, forty two, this is the site of the. Only place where enemy bombs. Hit American soil there's an actual crater. The only one, one of two, the other one hasn't been found. But one of them is right there. and. To before you hit your your email before you hit send on your email. Yes, I know the Japanese submarines shelled Santa Barbara. And some other oil facilities That's a different deal. Those were Japanese submarines that surfaced. And they they had a deck gun just like American subs and and German UNTER Z. Bhuttan. Everybody had a deck gun K.. But who had a hanger for an airplane? Well, the Japanese debt, the tight be Japanese. fleet submarine was John Orbis they made Twenty, eight of them. And after the war Americans were the the American Navy, technical research people were blown away by what the Japanese had done with the type B boat. Because the US, Navy had conceived. Of the the the concept of putting an airplane. Hangar on a submarine, but but had never pursued it. The Japanese saw almost immediately. That this is a genius pairing. You know it's it's like peanut butter and chocolate you know. So No one else mastered the racist Peanut Butter Cup submarines. But the Japanese did and they they brought it to fruition. They badly used it during the war but point is they made it. So for where I am. About fifty, five miles west. Out in the Pacific Ocean, at five thirty, five am on September ninth nineteen, forty to the. I twenty five launched it plane and the pilot was Nobuo Fujita. for Geeta after Pearl Harbor on the twenty. Five. He had gone to his executive officer and he said, listen you know I'm an old sea plane pilot. Now they had me stuck on a submarine and I'm not in a combat role. I'm a reconnaissance guy. I don't think that we are maximizing the capabilities of the type-b votes. If we use the airplanes for not only spotting strategic targets, but maybe dropping a bomb overflying over him. then. We would achieve total immediate surprise. And unlike Pearl Harbor, we wouldn't have to run home and rearm. We would just. Submerge. And then do it again where we want. And the executive officer said, you know what I like that concept tell you what why don't you write it up when we get back to Japan. We will. Submit to the Imperial General Staff and I'm sure they'll They'll approve this. in the meantime, they were sent to the west coast of the United. States most all the Japanese submarines have participated. In the Pearl Harbor attack were sent to the West, coast because obviously, and it was very intuitive of them. But didn't take a heck of a lot of thought they assume that the US would be reinforcing. Pearl Harbor. So they were sent to the West Coast off of Washington Oregon, and California. and then they were told to attack targets of opportunity. So. This was when Santa Barbara. was shelled causing some fires So Warrenton Oregon the very northwest tip of Oregon. Of the Columbia River that were shelled by this submarine. the I twenty five. and. this W- this created the the Japanese hadn't counted on this. They had assumed that a great secondary effect would be American panic. But little did they know that the west coast actually was terrified? Of Japanese submarines off of Los Angeles off of San Pedro off of Santa Barbara All right back in the second noble Fujitas. Concept. Is heard by the royal family of Japan right after this on the dark seek replace. Kfi Am six forty live everywhere on the iheartradio APP. If am six forty live everywhere on the iheartradio APP Brian. Blades our number three. I'm on the southern slope of Mount Emily here in Oregon It is Wednesday. And you're hearing this here on Saturday Day Ninety, ninety, nine of the stay safe at home covid. Thanks. So I decided leading California for forty eight hours was a good idea. Turns out. I was right. This is the site of the only place in World War Two where enemy bombs fell on American soil. For purposes of this hour Hawaii or Alaska because they were territories but here's the mainland of the US. This is where two bombs hit The West Coast was shelled. in World War Two or early after Pearl Harbor by late December Santa Barbara with shelled fires were started. Warrenton Oregon. At the mouth of the Colombia River. Was hit the Japanese submarine threat was very real. And in September of Nineteen, forty, two, a pilot. Nobuo Fujita would show the Americans exactly how real the threat was and what A submarine launch airplanes could do if you didn't know this. The threat was so real and this wasn't in people's minds. After the showing of Santa, Barbara and other places up and down the California coast. The January I nine, hundred, forty, two, Rose Bowl, which was Oregon state versus Duke. Was the only rose bowl actually not played in the Rose Bowl. It was moved from Pasadena to Duke to North Carolina. So what the Rose Bowl Committee did was they move the Rose Bowl so far inland it was in North Carolina and there was this is because the Japanese not only as I said, last break not only had submarines they could launch that that could surface and show you but they could launch aircraft, but they hadn't done it yet besides scouting. So after Pearl Harbor. And after the After the destruction of the American fleet at Pearl Harbor. But the the failure to hit the aircraft carriers the Japanese submarine force of the type B. Aircraft carrying submarines. Were sent to the west coast of the United States. To take any targets of opportunity out and for them. It meant cluster around. The Strait of Juan de Fuca. Where the fleet have Bremerton Washington, would have to come out in the Pacific Ocean cluster around. San Francisco Bay and the West Coast of La Japanese relieved information that a large American reinforcement was gonna be coming through the Panama Canal. So they were pulled off of the stations. On the West Coast and they were sent down closer to Panama. It was at this time. That the. Airplane pilot onboard the I twenty five Nobuo Fujita. said, it was executive officer. You know if I can drop real bombs, I could go and. Hit A. Walk. In the Panama Canal, I could shut the Panama Canal down for a month. If we do it at the right time if one of the channels is drained of water and I hit the gate. It will be impossible to repair in less than a month and that would be worth the mission but I don't drop real bombs because you guys use me as a So his executive officer said, tell you what, what are you write that up? That's an interesting concept because that would extend are striking range by several hundred miles because the plane he flew. Once a assembled it and it got in the air. Chugged along at one hundred, fifty miles an hour but a very small two seat plane. And it can fly very low and very undetected. In fact, a few months later they did reconnaissance over Sydney harbour the Japanese Navy sent the I twenty five with the plane pilot noble. Geeta. Off of the southeast coast of Australia. They surfaced before dawn. He takes off and he's flying over Sydney Harbour and his back Cedar. An enlisted guy also radioman sits there and he sketches out. The location of all of the Royal Australian Navy and Royal Navy craft that are in Sydney. Harbour. and as the sun came up. The Royal Australian Air Force scrambled some aircraft but they went to the wrong place some any aircraft guys had him in their sights but they were not given permission to fire because there was this no. Why Mate That had that a Japanese seaplane with Sydney So he turns back to the sub he lands very successful mission so they get back to Japan. And now it's mid nineteen, forty two. And his concept of maybe give me some real bombs and I can do some real damage gets the attention of the not only Admiral Yamamoto but the younger brother of Emperor Hirohito himself. And Fujita is called to a meeting. He's nervous as hell turns out they love his idea they love his ideas but there's GonNa be a little bit of a of a change instead of. Having bombs for targets of opportunity, you're going to go to the west coast of the United. States and you're gonNA. You'RE GONNA. Start. Forest fires, which is why I'm here on the of Mount Emily in southern Oregon just north of California. On this Wednesday the what is it? They the nineteenth of twenty twenty getting my Kobe's on back in a second. With the amazing conclusion to the story of Lieutenant Nobuo Fujita. The Guy, the only man to bomb the United States in all of World War Two right of this Kfi am six, forty, two dark secret place. Why underwear on the radio left. Poison. Ryan suits back with you from the slopes of Mount Emily in Oregon I know you're all safer at home but my daughter and I just got sick of this and we made a two day road trip. up here because this is the site the only place in the United States in World War Two. That enemy bombs fell on the US by the way I brought the dogs brought brought Wyatt brought Lucille because You can't come to national forests not have dogs in fact, here's why for a comment. Thank you All right. So it's mid nineteen, forty two and our seaplane pilot Nobuo Fujita. has proposed that the scout planes that the Jain Norma's Japanese type. B Submarines Carey in a waterproof hangar disassembled. He proposes that they actually dropped real bombs because he feels like he's being wasted. In. In this roles reconnaissance file his his idea concept is approved. with a bit of a change at the change is going to be that if you cause forest fires, then you're going to destroy. A natural resource, that's a war resource Americans are using. Spruce. Pine. Alaskan Sitka spruce, and other spruce. Not only for for airplanes but for ships. Four. Buildings. Overseas. The United, states maintain this enormous fleet. In the Pacific not just with fuel and food bulletin bandits but also construction materials and so this was a strategic blow that. They were thinking of hitting is starting a forest fire in Oregon where just a few years before there was an enormous fire. North of here. Near Nearer Coups Bay. That killed eleven people and destroyed two hundred and fifty thousand acres because of course back then. You didn't. You didn't have helicopters airdrops you know and all that. So at five, thirty, five, am September nineteen forty to the I twenty five surfaces about fifty five miles west of the in the Pacific Ocean Nobuo Fujita takes off and even though there was a blackout up and down the West Coast there was a lighthouse still operating. So that gave him a beacon to go by is also submarine. he flew over brookings and chugged along and he flew over a fire watch tower that was manned. In fact, the watchtower guy even made a call and said, you know I heard something and it sounded like a model t it sounded like an old model t Ford chugging by, but it was above me but not very far above me. So as Fujita and his radioman fly along he saw the shape of Mount Emily. flew towards it and the thinking by the Japanese planners was well drop your incendiary bombs on the southeast side of this mountain. And the wind will carry the fire inland. So at a certain place at a certain moment, he tells us and drop your bombs. The bombs were dropped right here. There's an actual crater here and another one probably about a hundred meters. To the to the east they were incendiary bombs. They weren't explosive bombs. They were incendiary bombs they were filled. With a little third might pellets supposed to hit and these would all spread out the explosion would spread the Thurmond out and it would all start a fire so They dropped the bombs and the radio and reports that he saw them both hit they circle a few times and they can see fire starting. So they fly back to the I twenty five. The. Sun Is already up but of course, it's up in the east. And the owners are com they land. They recover the seaplane December. Put back in the hangar off they go. Well, the I, twenty five and noble Fujita Survived World War. Two. what happened to the forest fire well, what they didn't know was that it had just rained here in September. September. Fifth through the Eighth Nineteen, forty two it was very very rainy which I think is the state motto of Oregon by the way, and so the termite filled incendiary bombs hit this forest floor. And didn't find a lot of fuel. Fuel. Means something that'll burn and it has to be burnable. Well, there's lots of stuff around here. This is very much like the Sierra Nevada's there's a lot of undergrowth around here. but none of it was burnable. It was still wet. So the fire watchmen the the US Forest Service Park Ranger. Or Force Ranger who saw the fire start reported it he personally hiked out here. There was no forest service road at the time the guy hiked three miles here with his Polaski, which is the axe and a whole, and he started cutting down underbrush, and then when the rest of the crew showed up here. A crater and they reported that well, apparently, the engine noise that I heard was a was a Japanese. bomber or something. and. So. They put the fire out the Japanese followed up a year or two later with the so-called vengeance balloons launched. From. from Japan carried by the trade winds. And the their idea was when. They had a timer. And on day five, they would drop incendiary bombs, believe it or not these balloons went up so high and got to the US. So quickly, one of the first ones was found off of San Pedro. In the water three days after it was launched from Japan One of them actually killed some picnicking people. In nineteen, forty four but anyway, bottom line, the fire was put out the only bombs dropped on US soil were right here nineteen, forty two. In hundred sixty, the good people of Brookings we're looking for. A way to put brookings on the map, they had their annual Zeljko festival coming up and somebody had mentioned. During the height of the Cold War attention. in one, thousand, nine, sixty, two, I'm sorry nineteen sixty. That it would be great to get the Japanese pilot who bombed Mount Emily over there to brookings some people said I. Believe it or not. Twenty years later, the incident was largely forgotten or unknown. So, the City Council Brookings, the Chamber of Commerce Brookings sent a letter to Noble Fujita. who was a businessman in Japan and they said, we are the good people of Brookings. Oregon, we invite you to come here for our Azalea Festival. We want to honor you. He was intimidated because he assumed he'd be Egged and beaten up and the whole thing. But he was assured no, it's not like that you know if you check, we won the war and You know we just want to reach a cross, the Pacific and show brotherly love the whole thing. So. Noble Geeta. Informs them that he he will come the. There were a group of veterans who didn't want that guy coming to brookings including the fire, the Fourth Ranger watchmen. and. The rancor over the invite was so bad. The local police actually jailed local troublemakers. What charge I don't know but they put five or six guys in the cooler for two days noble Geeta visited. So Nobuo Fujita comes here. He's celebrated by the people of Brookings and down there in Brookings in the City Museum is his Samurai Sword. He went to war with a four hundred year old family heirloom that his father gave him to carry in his cockpit and carried it all through the war. When he came here in nineteen sixty two, he left his Family Samurai Sword here as a gift, and if you come up here to brookings if you take this road trip you go to the Brookings City Museum and there is noble. Samurai sword he died in a nineteen ninety-seven. And that is the story of the only enemy pilot to drop bombs on the continental United States. Already. Dogs are back in the truck. Getting in. Are. You ready for. A nine. Hour. Road trip. Back. To. La. US All, right from bookings, Oregon this has been world Hollick number three.

Nearby, a complete radio transmitter will actually broadcast from Cape before the shot. I would bomb the. Dark secret place with Brian Suits. KFI. If I am six forty. It is a dark secret place, our number three Warhol IX couple of stories for you. Urban myths or not you can decide Let me start with this. There are many many examples in history of of Mother Nature stepping in and foiling the plans of man but usually it's weather. for instance, the Japanese Nationalistic Myth of the divine win the kamikaze meaning the typhoons of the Year Twelve, seventy, four and twelve eighty one that sunk and scattered the invasion fleet of the Mongol King Kubla Khan He. Years Assembling invasion army, but never succeeded. In actually invading the home islands of Japan, which gave rise to the Myth Japanese invulnerability and when all hope is lost, they can always count on the divine wind the kamikaze. And that is why the kamikaze were named that it was in in honor of that The Japanese. In fact, a typhoon in December of nineteen, forty four killed nearly eight hundred. American sailors. And sunk several ships almost doing worse than the actual suicide pilots and Japanese aircraft there was another typhoon in June of nineteen forty-five that wash man overboard It wasn't as bad as nineteen forty four where we're men went overboard airplanes slid around on carrier decks, and loose field tanks started fires. Because, of course, the ability to predict whether was just in its infancy in World War Two well, so much for weather. What about when some of Mother Nature's biggest animals decide to weigh in on one side or another in a war? Well I give you the battle of Ramree Island Burma. World War Two. January nineteen forty five. we now of course call Burma. Myanmar. Burma was a British colony. Of. As was India for many many years and the Japanese. At the outset of were to keep in mind in December of nineteen forty, one of the Japanese went to war with the United. States. And with the Commonwealth of Britain Pearl Harbor was their declaration of war against pretty much everyone who spoke English including India. and. Soon and nineteen, forty, four, the Japanese land offensive overran Burma fairly quickly all the way down the Malay Peninsula to Singapore and the ignominy surrender. Their at the crown jewel of the British Far East Singapore. So the Japanese occupied, Burma, from nineteen, forty two of course to the the end of the war. But by nineteen, forty, five, British were dislodging them from some of their some of their longtime garrison islands and other places in Burma. The British had to take Rangoon, the capital of Burma by May but or also monsoons would set in and pretty much. You couldn't get anything done. So one of the first. steps was to retake very large. Coastal island on the west coast of. Called, ramree island was barely separated from the mainland as it. Lay in an estuary in the delta of a large river that emptied into the Indian Ocean there from from Burma and it was garrisoned by several thousand Japanese troops, not thousands and thousands, but about two thousand, and so the British shows. A Indian army. Unit the twenty six in Indian Infantry Division and its seventy first infantry brigade to lead the amphibious assault on. Ramree island along with British Royal Marines Royal Australian Troops Royal Air Force Royal Australian. Air. Force. You know the the standard mix. Of, the British there in the in the Far East as they called it, which which was a sideshow to a sideshow. It doesn't get the credit that it deserves because there was a lot of actually a very, very artful. Warfighting because of the the requirements in the jungle warfare of logistics and supply in America we called it the CBI China Burma India Theater the British called the Far East. and. As I say, it didn't get the headlines, but the the fighting was fierce and the the Japanese fought the British as hard as they fought us. And Battle of Memory Island brought a unpleasant surprise for for all sides but specifically for the Japanese. So, in January, nineteen, forty five. there was a pre invasion naval gunfire bombing by HMS Queen Elisabeth a British. BATTLESHIP with fifteen inch guns. several hours before the daytime amphibious assault, the Indian seventy, I seventy, three brigade. Landed largely unopposed, which sort of. Paralleled our experience of the Japanese that by by enlarge by nineteen forty-five, their tactic was to allow the enemy to land and take the beach and then fight them inland and so they did with the British ramree island. The British the amphibious assault happened. In the north of the island with the operational intent to go down the east side of the island and cut off a Japanese retreat. Because to the West was the notion and the Japanese navy was just frankly not able to mount any sort of evacuation or rescue or credible. Counter attack on the British invasion fleet and so the Indian army made rapid advances. But the Japanese fought tenaciously as they were known to do the the Indian army had several Japanese prisoners they had captured in Burma and prior combat and the men had turned and they were being used as a sign ups. Interpreters and things like that. And they made repeated appeals to the Japanese soldiers who had been on this You know swampy God forsaken island since nineteen, forty two, they had been garrisoning it. And the Japanese prisoners would get on megaphones and say listen you'll be fad. We know you're all sick of these tropical diseases you're not being cared for by. Tokyo. There's no dishonor in walking away from a losing battle. You're not gonNA glorify the emperor. Nothing none of it worked none of it worked. The Japanese continued. To slowly fight a retreat to the south on the East Coast. And the the Indians attempted. To prevent them from being able to evacuate to the mainland. And at that point, the retreating Japanese from the one twenty. First Infantry Regiment. found. Themselves entering the edge of a salt water mangrove swamp. And their intent was for about a thousand men. To retreat through this salt water this on. Hospitable. saltwater coastal mangrove swamp there were Scorpions of course, they were diseases Nighttime accidents, things like that. and. By the nineteenth of February nineteen, forty five. The Japanese. Retreating forces and their leadership had committed that they would try to break contact with the British and the Indians by going through this impassable unhospitable mangroves, salt water swamp. And the Japanese have been on the island for three years and they thought they knew most of the threats the island held. But on the night of the nineteenth, of February nineteen, forty five. They discovered that Mother Nature had most definitely taken sides and had taken sides in the form of the world's largest. Reptilian Ambush Predator. The, Saltwater Crocodile? When we come back how the saltwater crocodile picked the winning side in World War Two and he pacific this. Number three that are secret place Bryan suits back in just a second cave I am six forty live everywhere on the IHEART radio APP. If I am six forty is dark secret place number three borough Hollick's live everywhere on the iheartradio APP. The story of one of the Earth's largest and most brutal predators picking side towards the end of World War. Two, it's January. and February of Nineteen, forty, five, the British with their Indian army allies are taking back Burma, from three years of Japanese occupation. And the first step is taking an occupying the island of ramree which is off the west coast of Burma it had been garrisoned by Japanese infantry since nineteen forty to the British invade. And their operational goal was to sweep down the east. Coast of the island, which was a estuary island of shallow water between the mainland and the island. But to try to cut off a possible Japanese rescue or retreat from the mainland never the less the Japanese did get some coastal boats across. To the south eastern beaches of Ram and the the Japanese understood. That they needed to retreat southwards. And if they could clear a water mangrove swamp they had a pretty good idea that the British and the Indians. Wouldn't try to follow them into the hospital. But immobilizing swamp. Brought tanks and landing craft the whole thing sort of the Indians. As they were equipped by us. and so the Japanese made a bet that even though it's inhospitable, there's no fresh water anders, snakes, and Scorpions, and all this will go through this saltwater tidal mangrove swamp but it'll take a couple of days, but the British won't pursue it. So they they enter the swamp and they discover in this broad stripe of coastal mangrove swamp that is the habitat of the world's largest. Reptilian Predator, an ambush Predator in fact, called the Saltwater Crocodile some of them grow to be well over one tonne. they can live for years. They are voracious to this day in Burma Myanmar as well as in Malaysia and even on Thailand not dozens but hundreds of people disappear the coasts and body parts are found later on or bits of clothing to this day. The Saltwater Crocodile knows that human beings are soft and warm and juicy on the outside and crunchy in the middle, and they take people from from the Gulf of Siam all the way to the northern regions of Australia where every year somebody disappears in giant saltwater crocodile is blamed. So. On the night of nineteen February. Ninety forty five. The British were monitoring the Japanese retreat just offshore in their landing craft with the same landing craft and we made down Riverside and we provided to the to the British in the Far East? The the Amtrak. And so the the British were a monitoring. Japanese coastal boats attempt to come over and rescue these guys as they were making a through the mangrove swamp. When on the night of nineteen February nineteen, forty, five. They began hearing scattered rifle shots. And they were seeing flashlights being flashed in the dark in the mangrove swamp and but worst of all. They were hearing to sounds that chilled them to the bone. Was the scream of injured mutilated men being eaten alive. And the other was the. Tell tale sound of a crocodile stunning and spray. Crocodiles at big and crocodiles and. Alligators in Florida do a similar thing. They'll grasp the the dog, the deer or the local. Personnel for morning walk though grasp them by the legs they'll. They'll leap out and they can do like thirty miles an hour in short spurts it'll grab their prey. Pull back in the water and they'll begin spinning. And the spinning. Theoretically stuns the prey or disabled or whatever, and it makes sort of a rhythmic worrying in the mud. So the the British and Australian and Indian troops in the landing craft on the night of nineteen. February reported this that they were hearing the telltale sounds. Of Saltwater Crocodiles. I'm eating human beings. in nineteen, sixty, five, the British official historian Stanley would burn Kirby wrote of the Japanese defence of the island and escape of about five hundred men against fearful odds had been courageous and determined. then. COMES ACROSS KC attack, some brief soldiers including later on the famous naturals Bruce Reid who participated in the battle claimed. that. The large population of saltwater crocodiles native to the mangrove swamps prayed on the trapped Japanese force at night and eight many many soldiers. In nineteen, sixty two, he wrote a book called Wildlife Sketches Near and far. And he wrote this quote. The night of the nineteenth February nineteen, forty five was the most horrible that any members of the motor launch crews lanny craft ever experience the scattered rifle shots in the pitch black swamp punctured by the screams of wounded man crushed in the jaws of huge reptiles. Blurred worrying sound of Spinning Crocodiles Cacophony of hell that has rarely been duplicated on earth at dawn the vultures arrived to clean up with the crocodiles laughed. Of about one thousand Japanese soldiers at entered the swamps of Ramree only about twenty wherever found alive. If he was correct, the the Ramsey island crocodile attacks would have been the worst recorded in history the British Burma. Star. Association seems to lend credence to the swamp tech's stories but appears to dry distinction between the twenty. Japanese. Survivors of one attack. And the nine hundred Japanese who are left to fend for themselves in the swamp. This is the memoir from Lieutenant Journal in Lieutenant General Jaffar. Jacob. This is what he said in his Book Odyssey and Warren peace quote over one thousand soldiers of the Japanese garrison retreated into the crocodile infested mangrove swamps we went in with boats and interpreters. Using loud hailers, asking them to come out not a single one did saltwater crocodile some of them well, over twenty feet in length frequent these waters it is not difficult to imagine what happened to the Japanese who took refuge in the mangroves. other historians have disputed that saying you know how much do you think they can eat but Australian biologists have said that they're well known surplus eaters that they'll kill what's available and come back and need it later So there you go that is Mother Nature Picking aside there at the end of World War Two the Saltwater Crocodile picking the allies and eating. Japanese. Soldiers in February of nineteen forty five all right back in the second it is warhol number three Kfi the dark secret place am six forty live everywhere on the iheartradio APP. If I am six forty more stimulating. Talk is an artistic replace Brian Suits in here a lot of a lot of talk of nuclear weapons You know these days with North Korea we're talking about last hour also the Iranians will they or will they not restart their nuclear program? Well. What did the really smart people do in on May tenth and eleventh of Nineteen forty-five. In the planning for the use of an atomic weapon that had never even been tested yet. on a country that very few people in the Manhattan project really had any cultural insight. All All we knew from the the war. Department. From the that was then renamed the Department of Defence in the middle of the war by the way. was that the Japanese were fighting more and more fanatically as we got closer to Japan? So the exigency, the necessity. To use a weapon that would be so destructive that it would shock the Japanese. into surrender had become more and more desperate, and so they formed the target committee and the target committee had as their mandate. The decision of which of the nominated targets that the US army. Air Forces had provided to the Manhattan project, which of those would be the best target. Why would it be the best target? How would the aircraft dropped the bomb at what height at what height would I said bomb I'm Sarah I have been kicked off the committee, the Gadget, and at what height will the gadget be detonated and what if the weather is so crappy? That they can't drop the bomb on the primary target. Or the secondary target or the tertiary target. The at the atomic bomb missions all took off with three separate target files. And in fact, if if you don't know this Nagasaki was not the primary target of the August eighth atomic bomb of the second bomb, it was the diversion target was the secondary target, and in fact, they were nearly at the decision point because the weather was so bad. That, they nearly spared Nagasaki and moved onto the third target. but let's get back to the minutes of the meeting. A nine am ten may Dr Oppenheimer's. Office, they talk about height of detonation. The criteria for determining height selection were discussed. It was agreed that conservative figures should be used in determining the height since it is not possible to predict accurately the magnitude of the explosion and some Saddam can't be detonated. Party, and since the bomb can be detonated as much as forty percent below the optimum. Tude. With a reduction of only twenty five percent in area of damage. And then they go into the math of that for the little boy, the detonation height should correspond to a pressure five PSI both MOMS could be dialed up or dial down they get either explode at five thousand tons of TNT or fifteen, thousand tons of TNT, and they they advised. That they should set the fuse to five thousand times. However, in the air, an engineer could reset that for for a larger yield the the math that they had done turned out to be. So amazingly accurate when they did actually validate the bomb in July. The physicist who worked on the Manhattan project were within about ninety seven percent of reality once they actually detonated the the first bomb at Trinity New Mexico, they're able to actually measure the output of the bomb they were they were popping corks because they were so close to write on, and this is keep in mind. This was done well before the advent of computers computers in World War Two were used for battleship. And they were used for encrypted communication and coding they were not used to push data slide rules and brains were used for that. So the scientists of the Manhattan project. We're using data here back in May that turned out to be extremely accurate Operations they set forth criteria for bombing visually, they said that with the. Three targets set for each mission. There was a less than two percent chance that any. That all three targets would would be socked in would would-be weathered in keep in mind this August of nineteen, forty, five in August in. Japan it's very similar to August California usually have some rain somewhere, but it's usually clear. So they determined that it was less than a two percent chance that a B twenty nine after bomb by radar, which was the least optimal way to bomb they WANNA bomb. By by visual bombing as they called it and then came gadget jettison jettisoning and landing. And this is what they're talking about because the manufacturing of the bombs took so many resources because it took so long to do, and they did not have an assembly line of them yet what if the aircraft couldn't drop the bomb in atomic bomb and had to come back to Tinian the island of the Pacific where took off from or some other island? What do we do at that point in under what criteria do we actually jettison the bomb into the Pacific? It'd be too unsafe. It was agreed that if the aircraft has to return to his base with the gadget, and if it is in good condition when it has reached their, it should make a normal landing with the greatest possible care which with such precautions as standby fire equipment being held in readiness on the ground. This operation will inevitably involve some risks to the base and to the other other aircraft parked on the field. However, the chance of a crash when the aircraft is in good condition and the chances of a crash initiating a high order explosion are both sufficiently small that it was the view that those present that the landing operation with the unit under these circumstances with justifiable and justifiable risk. Frequent landings with inert and a high explosive filled units have been made in the past training and landing with the unit should be given to Walters In case, the the key in the aircraft returns to its base and then finds it cannot make normal landing it may be necessary to Jetson the gadget. In the case of the fat man, this can probably best be accomplished by dropping the bomb into shallow water from a low altitude tests on this will be carried out with both inert and live units. In the case of the little boy, the situation is considerably more complicated since water leaking into the little boy will set off a new reaction and since the American held territory in the vicinity of the base is so densely filled that no suitable jettison and ground for little boys been found, which is sufficiently devoid of moisture, which is sufficiently soft that the projectiles not sure deceit from the impact. The best emergency procedure that has so far been proposed is considered to be the removal of the gunpowder from the gun and the execution of a crash landing. In this case, there was no danger of fire setting the gun and the acceleration should be small to prevent seating whether talking about as a little boy actually had. A pellet of a plutonium that was going to shoot into a empty cylinder plutonium. That's how they were going to initiate that fishing reaction, and then apparently it was their their judgment that the little boy dropped in water would actually just go off. And so you couldn't do that a mile off Guam remind off Tinian So anyway, more on this, you're just a second they what were the targets and what about the psychological impact when we come back it is the anniversary of a super secret memo from May of nineteen forty five. The're theories about what will happen when a when an has dropped on Japan right after this dark secret place Brian Suits back here. One More Time Kfi Kfi am six, forty dark secret place live everywhere on the iheartradio APP to. Putting more stimulating talk is the dark secret place. Transits in here one more time. I'll be back tomorrow native eight PM for Super Local. Sunday So reading the declassified memo from May of Nineteen forty-five keep in Mind v day the war in Europe had just ended the the day before last on May eighth. The. German signing the articles of capitulation. Surrender, and there was great joy amongst the Manhattan project people there was there was even obviously there was optimism maybe the Japanese would concurrently surrenders seeing that there they were now standing alone and that they were now facing the combined allied forces and they had no chance of success especially since it was fairly clear, the Japanese intelligence had figured this out that the Russians would be joining the war in ninety days from for May eighth. And so. South of one thirty committee east made up of physicists and military officers had to decide on what the Targets were and rank them, and what was the status in May of nineteen forty five original targets or not hero Shema or Nagasaki the original target number one was killed Oh. Kyoto is Japan's ancient capital. Of Kyoto had been for many reasons spared a lot of the worst of the air war of Japan Tokyo, of course. Earlier in February ninety five, the famous Tokyo fire rate had occurred incendiary raid. Over Tokyo that wound up creating more casualties in Hiroshima or Nagasaki more Japanese died the Tokyo fire rate than either Hiroshima or Nagasaki. So that worked we knew how to destroy Japanese cities. So Kyoto so far have been spared this. What was the status of Kyoto in May of nineteen forty five the memo says. by the way here here where the qualifications number one, they be important targets in a larger area of more than three miles in diameter. To be capable of being damaged effectively by a blast three, they're unlikely to be attacked by next August. Doctor Stearns on this case was the head of that committee hit list of five targets which the air force would be willing to reserve for our use unless. Foreseen circumstances arise so they are about to ask the air force to lay off the following five cities number one. Kyoto. It's an urban industrial area with a population of a million. It is the former capital of Japan many people in industries are now being moved there as other areas are being destroyed from a psychological point of view. There is the advantage that Tokyo as an intellectual center for Japan and the people. There are more apt to appreciate the significance of such a weapon as the gadget it was called a double a target. To Hiroshima, this is an important target army depot and port of embarkation in the middle of an urban industrial area. It is a good radar target and such a size that a large part of the city could be extensively damaged. There are adjacent hills which are likely to produce a focusing effect due to rivers. It is not a good incendiary target also a AA, a target number three with Yokohama. Target Number Four. was, the Kokura Arsenal one of the largest arsenals Japan and target five was gotta Number six was the emperor's Palace in Tokyo that was discussed. It was agreed that we should not recommended but that any action for this bombing should come from authorities on military policy psychological factors, they all agreed. That there had to be enough survivors to corroborate the account of what happened as it turns out when Hiroshima was bombed in August six, all communications coming out of Hiroshima ceased, and they had to send a pilot in a courier plane from Tokyo to Hiroshima. Who radioed back what he saw, which was utter devastation because. And they didn't think of this in this memo they didn't think what if word doesn't get out for a few days because we absolutely destroy everything So as it turns out, Kyoto was taken off the target list precisely because. It was It was thought in the post war occupation environment. The fact that we spared. Kyoto. As a nod to Japanese culture would be considered a feather in our cap and something that we could point to because we were busy destroying Tokyo. Tokyo was absolutely leveled Tokyo made Berlin look like a a brand new city and so it was thought ultimately the Kyoto. would be too much of a cultural stab in the back, and so it came off the list and Hiroshima as a military target deniable port city a big army base the the little boy on August Eighth th-that bomb like I said, the original target of Kuro was clouded in a went to the secondary target of Nagasaki, which was also covered in clouds. But at the last minute, the decision point based on fuel when they were going to turn to Tokyo. The clouds parted and they were able to bomb Nagasaki. But as you as you note, Nagasaki was not even on the list in in May of forty five. So anyway, very, very fascinating document a memo. Over two days of meetings may tenth and Eleventh Nineteen forty-five. Now, declassified array that's the dark secret place, and we'll talk you back here tomorrow night at eight PM for Super Political Sunday. All right.

Welcome to heartbreak. So through every stage of your life, your sexual relationships take on different forms as you. Learn a lot, you know, about yourself and about other people mostly through great strife and suffering with each new attempt at a coupling that you participate in relationships are crazy the complicated. Very confusing. No matter your age, but the older that I get the more. I realize I put so much more stress on myself and on my relationships than I needed to when I was a younger person like in in even high school middle school through college. In aside from questions related to like, drinking or smoking weed or anxiety, the questions I received the most from listeners or foreign away for members of the Rb p gain dealing with relationship issues. Whether they be recent breakup or cheating or any of the other shit that comes with young love. So I wanted to take a segment to explain something. No relationship, ending no matter how serious no matter what stage of life is the end of the world. Now, obviously can often feel that way when a relationship ends. But it's so important that you remind yourself that's not actually the case at least twice before I met my wife. My soulmate the love of my life Taylor at least twice before I was mature enough to really even understand or comprehend the concept of like real love. I thought I was in love. And I thought that I would have spent the rest of my life or would have maybe considered spending the rest of my life with whoever the chick. I was date. Or or whatever. And then when we broke up my world went dark right in for like weeks and even months, in some cases, I'm mourned these breakup. They're fucking brutal. Breakup, terrible. No matter what almost every time when a serious relationship ins, you're removing the person you're closest to in your life from your life entirely in some cases, and that can obviously be crushing. But you gotta remember the life goes on. And you don't have any clue what you're doing yet. I mean, really like I said it shouldn't matter the stage old young experienced inexperienced relationships come to an end for one reason or another and you can't let yourself be completely wrecked. When that happens like, do you think a dramatic teen or a drunken collegiate mess as you cope with the changes or whatever. But never let go of the fact that life goes on and you're going to heal. None of this is nearly as serious as it seems and it's incredibly likely that like ten to five. Fifteen years down the road. You're gonna look back at yourself right now flipping out crying miserable. Depressed mess who thinks the world's coming to an end. And you're gonna laugh at yourself. Because you were broken by relationship of which the most important thing you achieved with a new sexual position or something you you're gonna be fine. Heartbreak is part of life. It's part of the process of growing as a human emotionally. It seems like the world is a joyless hellhole filled with nothing, but despair and pain, I assure you that is not the case. You're just too young to have any fucking clue what you're doing. That's how it's supposed to be. So my advice to everybody who's got questions about how do I deal with this break-up or how do I handle this? They're all manner of different ways. Those things can go down. All right. And none of them are easier than the others. They're diff they're different to be certain and some of them come with different levels of frustration and anger than others. But it is what it is. You just got to keep an open mind and make sure you really learning from each relationship you embark upon and again, remember at the end of the day, whether it works out or not you are you you an individual human being and no one else, male or female or mixed. Supersedes the importance of your personal happiness and well-being. So take care of yourself. Next thing things you notice at the bar while sober. So you're all the way at this point, surely 'cause he talks about it. Every episode Mike is doing sober January. And as a result. You are forced to hear twice as many people on this podcast talk about how they don't drink alcohol for at least a handful, more episodes. And I apologize for that that being said, Mike, and I are team content and always looking for ways to turn our own lives into your entertainment and mica the started to notice things at the bar while sober over the first couple of weeks here in January that he wanted to discuss an obviously I've been observing Junkers at the bar stoned for over a year now. So I have some things to say as well. But Mike I wanted to let you have the opportunity you started hearing kind of share with us what you've experienced thus far in January. Yeah, I've talked a lot about sober January. You people are probably mostly sick about hearing about it. But I'm gonna tell you a little bit more this weekend. My Dallas Cowboys got beat. But I wanted to watch it. And as I mean, I I like the Cowboys. I like pro football football is a great television show. K it's a perfect TV product that being said, I don't feel the passion for pro football. That I do for college football. I if if my team loses I'm sick. Like, it makes me it will ruin my weekend when missoula's wind music. Yeah. When Mizzou loses a heartbreaking fashion, which is pretty much. How we lose every game. Okay. Shocking. Heartbreaking soul crushing defeat. I feel you because there's differences for me like a rockets loss in the play offs breaks, my soul. Right. I was in the playoffs. I'm like. Yeah. That was going to happen. Yeah. I feel the same way about spur skimps when the Spurs get eliminated or or they lose a crusher. Like, I'm I'm a wreck, right? Okay. I love the Cowboys have been a Cowboys fan since I was a child. I've we've spoken extensively about my phantom of the Cowboys. How I I don't like being a Cowboys fan because they're owned by just a sleazy asshole. And all of those things. That being said. When Mizzou is on. And we're playing a big game. Like, I am more than happy to watch the game at home and scream at the television and focus on put my phone away. And just be in the moment. That's my preferred method for an important game four it is my method for Spurs to complaints. For the Cowboys. And for pro football. I like to watch the playoff games in a festive environment where there are lots of people around. Pro football's a pretty simple game. You don't really need to hear the announcers. You know, what's happening? They've got a hundred replays. You just want energy? I want to be around other people. I wanna I wanna feel the energy proud a raucous crowd. So this week I went to a bar in Austin called Beaufort's and watch the Cowboys that was the plant. So I got there about seven o'clock game started about seven fifteen and it went, you know, went till ten so I was in this bar for three hours plus sober. Totally sober. Yeah. And I had some observations, and I don't think I've ever spent that much time totally sober in a bar. In the same bar, at least certainly to experience. The the first time you do it. Especially normally I'd go out on occasion during sober January or times when I'm nights, I'm not drinking or whatever. But like, you never you never stay in the same place. Like, I'll go meet my buddies. They'll have one beer, and I'll roll out or, you know, even in you know nights where you don't want to drink. You just kind of go out and bar hop, or whatever I've never just sort of been in one place in observed everything around me right in the manner that I did a few things that stuck out to me that I didn't notice before. But I noticed smell. Oh, man Rawson. I both have allergies. So I I don't know about you. But I can never smell anything. I can't either like eighty eighty five percent of the time. I can't smell. I can't either. Which is which is here's the thing. There's only two things that can that can really light my nose up, and that's either a very good smell or a very bad smell. Okay. I feel like I take it's like anything in between. In my nose. Can't even fucking sense that it's there. Yeah. Well, the thing that got my attention the other the on Saturday night was the smell of cheap tequila. Oh, good gorgeous too key. I I didn't see exactly what the kilo. That was being poured was Klag if yes showed her wasn't patrolling. But I I I was watching the game. And I turned my friend coach Bobby is also sort of doing over January, and he was sober with me he fell off the wagon for the Cowboys. I, but he was back on the wagon with me on Saturday. That's pathetic. So I was like holy shit. You smell that. He goes that kill him like. Yup. And we'd look to our right and somebody or forts Quila shots. And it was it was a really weird phenomenon. Just smell that from like eight feet away. Yeah. Like you. You don't you know, a bar generally kind of stinks. It's violating feeling the tequila in the fact that I have these allergies like, I don't smell the general bar, stinky, nece this I smelled like it woke me up in a sensory way that I was I was not prepared for inlet your brain. Because it's that weird phenomenon our brains like when you when you smell can bring back so many things it lights up your brain. With all the memories of the time, you blacked out onto Keelan pissed yourself or whatever. So you smell tequila in your brains like high alert. Yeah, we're in the zone. Oh, that's the Quila mistake able it wasn't like, oh, someone was Jan vodka. No, no. No, no. That was tequila. It was a chemical reaction. I felt it. Yeah. So that was funny to me that was something. I've never I could be at the bar after half, two drinks. And you you you never be like, oh, so my second tequila shots of there. You just don't care, right. It was weird. That was something that I was unfamiliar with the other. Thing that I noticed is people got much got progressively drunker throughout the game. That is the thing. That is always a is always the biggest most entertaining thing about watching people to me. Right. And this is something that you wouldn't get if your bar hopping or if you're having wondering this is something that's unique to stay in the same bar for three to four out. Yes. And you see the same people getting drunker, and you see just like the general the the average alcohol level in each person. There is getting higher and higher. Yeah. And it gets really easy to track to when you're sober. Because you don't have anything else to do. So you're kind of like it's easy to it's easy to differentiate between people who are just drunk because they've had a few and they have a low tolerance and people who are pounding and getting super fucked up because they drink all the time. Yeah. It was just it was interesting too. It was kind of fun. Like there were a few times or coach Bobby, and I just like looked each other and like God drunk people are knocked. Yes. Like, you said there's the same person who. Where we were in front of the bar. You had to walk past us to get to the bathroom. And there was one guy who walked past us like four times the first time he was like nice. It was like pardon me, the second time. He he he walked back and said, hey, thanks. Yes. The second time he likes sort of like tripped, and like bumped into me, but it was like he sort of like caught me with his hand, you know, at least they're Gresley. More more shitty. Is the third time. He he tripped. And like almost an spilled his drink not on me, thankfully, but you know, and then like the four-time he walked by. He dropped a dose AKIs bottle which exploded everywhere, and I was just like that. And I knew it was it was the same guy. I could just saw trace it was remarkable about midway through the third quarter. A I, you know, I don't look at women who aren't my girlfriend because I I love her. And I don't live other women course, a moderately attracted woman came by the the best way. I could describe her was. That she was short. She was like four foot to this is a short person. Okay. Just imagine a short stacked girl is she was she was not like a stunner in either way just say a average looking for foot two woman. Okay. Came up to Kohner volley too. I mean. To forfeit to would be a mean like any closer to four to five to short Jesus like four ten may. Maybe maybe like five foot tall. All right. It's smaller person. She walked up coach, Bob. He's like six three six four and just like walked up and poke coach Bobby in the in the in the chest and her is like got to his nipple level. Okay. And. Me put in just sort of walked away. And I was like, well, did you know that person coach he's like, no, it was like did she say thinking, no, not really I think she I think she wants to make out or something. But I I am not prepared to do that. Old finger to the chest. Yeah. And then like she walked up to him again. And just like put her nose in in his chest. It was weird. And I was like this is the man drunk people. Make weird decisions. They what I was. The greatest thing about booze. Is it takes away all your inhibitions? Like this never mitt to this coach Bobby a single man there. You know, good in great shape than attractive. Dude has a good job. There's a one thousand percent chance if coach Bobby had tin bud lights in in which you normally has on a Saturday night. He would have just started making out with this girl. The bar. I've seen this. I've seen this movie. Like one hundred ton sure nobody makes out with girls at the bar sober. No. Of course, not you would never do this. No comes up to you and attempts to make out with you. You just don't do. It you go. God did what the, but we've all seen in probably when we've all been there where you know, somebody walks up to you in like one minute later, you're making out. Yeah. And you don't know this person's name, you don't know who they are. But you know, you're both just hammered you just want exchange fluid, and you're just you've got your tongue down their throat. And when you're sober these activities. This this action is just preposterous. It's something that like that's a drunk person would be insanely fun in sexual as a sober person. Would be insanely awkward and disgusting. Like, even if I was totally single and an a girl was like a tin, just a drunken. A drunken ten just stumbles over to me and and wants to make out. I just can't imagine that being something. I'd wanna do like call me tomorrow. I'm like, let's get up at like, I just can't imagine that impulse. That's just something. That is such an insane insane action. That happens a thousand times a night at every bar in America. Just drunk people stumbling up to each other and making out without talking or doing anything only place that happens is inside these bars. Yes, the beauty of and that's something that you don't realize until you go to one of these places. Totally. So God, it's fucked up. Yeah. So that was that was basically those were the the big things did you kinda watch people get progressively drunker and just like the general crowd get drunk, and again, this is like a game ended like ten ten fifteen whatever time he did not even too late. So it's you know, and this is a bar on west six three which is sort of like a late night. Some more adult sick. Six sort of. Yeah. It's like, but it's more of a a lot of the bars down there. Don't get busy until ten ten thirty eleven most of them. Yeah. Yeah. Eating on a Saturday. So like, these this isn't like, I don't know. I just found it kind of kind of interesting to see people the fall into that. I think the thing you're you're looking to point out. There is it's the game exports sporting event bars are a whole different animal, even then regular bars sober, you just pushing the timeline forward several hours through. Yeah. That's what happens. So like, your ten thirty ends up being more like what people would normally be like at one AM or whatever. So it's just fucking. But I'm like the far and away. Most entertaining thing about being in a bar or a party or wedding surrounded by junk people while you are sober or stoned is watching the degenerates slide into madness over the course of the night because you conversations genuinely do go from like people start out. They get a little socially lubricated in their better at talking. They have less social anxiety. You're having more fun. You may notice that some of your friends or family are are more fun to be around when they've had a couple of them. But then things take turn in somewhere somewhere along. The course of the night. You will get an inevitably annoyed by someone that you usually like, yes. And it's because they're drunk and your not, and it sucks. It could be for a number of reasons. The other things I noticed while I'm at a bar or at a wedding. Or at a party. And there's a lot of drunk people are this. They talk junk people do closer and closer to you is the night go. Yeah. They'll close talk thing. So it starts off at a socially acceptable distance. But then by the end of the night, you got people talking like I mean, granted nobody's ever come on put their nose on my chest. Like this four foot to alleged person did, but I routinely will notice people like you to close men like the Dhillon thing from. Yeah. Yeah. Fucker you to convey, my personal space not do this. If we were sober. Now. Not this is just not a thing. That would happen. You've lost your since of mail Email. Any anyone we all know that pro all see related to sex too? That's hilarious part of it. It'll be dudes girls. Again. It's not about that. It's about you lose your personal space radar also drunk people repeat themselves a lot more than you realize. This is one of the biggest things that I picked up on when I stopped drinking and continue to with my social life is that you will hear things over and over and over, and obviously the draw the drunk or people are the worst this particular phenomenon becomes but man, get ready to hear things more than once that shit. Just keeps happening you mentioned the smell stuff. And I last week at one point I brought up like the biggest problem with weed is the smell the stench the fact that it is so pungent and. It tends to be the more. The better the weed the more pungent the product is you don't realize this. But I'll call does smell a lot. A you just told a story in which just the simple smell of tequila lit, your brain up. Just this isn't he the port on me or even within, you know, five feet of me. It's just the smell of it being poured. Yeah. The smell stuff is crazy. Like, you don't you don't realize, but booze smells, okay, vodka is like, the one exception. And it's the one that all alcoholics inevitably turn to because they can drink it and get away with it without anyone knowing but other booze whiskey tequila fucking scotch gin gin these things smell. They have very specific, smells, and when you found large amounts of them you start to give off said smell, not just through your breath. But also through your sweat, and you're smelly Junkin fuck. And I just wanna be in defense of stones again. Yes, we'd smells, but you mother fuckers smell to we all smell. All right. We're all just trying to get fucked up in just stink. And let let me just say one more thing before we we move on here. I'm not trying to get on my high horse. I know people on the Pompton kick the go sober for fourteen days. Now, I'm looking down upon drunk people. No, not at all come away. Now, you'll have to know this show. Well, enough at this point to know this isn't about judgment. It's about funny observations. That's right. And I mean if nothing else, and here's another reason why if you if you haven't done over January and you're thinking about doing sober February or whatever this is a good opportunity to just observe things that you wouldn't normally observe even had three beers. I one of observed the things that I observed more 'cause you stopped carrying because even with just a little bit alcohol in you. You you become it's just a different deal, and it it's better in my mind. I rather rather have had two beers and been a little more loose and not been so coach, Bobby. And I were like we were we were uncomfortable. By the actions of those around us in a way that two beers. Or maybe a joint or whatever you do. Yes. You don't affect you deal. That's what you that's the strangest part about it. Honestly. I mean, really is. That's like you. If you're like me, I was always a like an anxious drinker, socially. So like as I would start to notice people around me doing dumber and more awkward shit. It would make me more uncomfortable. So I would drink faster. Yeah. The problem. I, you know, the the older I gotta get on their level right shows up at brunch, and his, you know, thirty minutes after his friends have been there already hammered like oh shit. I gotta catch up. Yeah. He's got to that two minute. Everyone who who's ever had drinks knows that the I gotta catch up guy is the guy who ends up vomiting that. Now, he does you can't ever get caught up. That's not on your own pace. Just go at your own pace. You start the marathon thirty minutes late. You don't full sprint to try to catch. No. Just going to hurt yourself. You get a book and die. Yeah. But anyway, yeah, I I I enjoyed it. The game was entertaining. It would Buford's by the way. Good place to watch games. We were in the back area. There's a new upstairs lounge unrelated to Spurs GM be for. Yes. Our see just so happens to be the name of the bar. It is it was the fi Austin has a lack of legitimate sports bars. I would say very must be because we don't have any pro sports. I guess, but it still doesn't make sense we have covered three, and that's it. Yeah. And some b-dubs like spread out, but there's only on many of those in Austin, there really aren't we we really don't have that many options. But we really don't have like a really good sports bar scene here there, you know, Levada street has you there. Can be fun for Texans games. Sure. And they're they're places, but Buford's is enormous. Now, I don't know when you've been there. I have in there and have not I haven't been there in a year, six months or whatever. And they've expanded the entire upstairs is fucking enormous. They've got a giant projection screen. They had the the game audio on. It was a fun place to watch the game. So I've got friends in town for the Super Bowl. I'd rather not go to a bar to watch the Super Bowl. But if we do end up going to Varta watch SuperBowl, we'll probably go there. Super bowl. I enjoy good house party with just want to eat like disgusting slob at at someone's house. You just want to eat like all of the cheese plate and then eat a bunch of caso. And then like, maybe a burger and and a bunch of chips that I don't normally like that's what I want. God. If I have a beer to that's fine. But I really just want to eat until I'm I'm sick. It's a it's a good goal to be sure. 'cause it's not like even at thanksgiving. Get now, we're onto something. Now. Just just go. Thanks giving is the other biggest you know, the Super Bowl is number two in America behind thanksgiving for food consumed. Yes. Like, grocery store food sold whatever at least at thanksgiving where you're eating things that aren't that. You don't eat three hundred sixty four days a year like dressing or stuffing, or whatever you wanna call it, which is bred that's like seasoned. And then poured gravy on. Yes. It least like there are actual food there. If you just have Turkey and mashed potatoes and Green Bay. Enes that's like a semi balanced meal that an actual meal that's a meal. Nobody has like a a meal at a Super Bowl. Now. I have like one thousand jalapenos on chips and shit. Like. Yeah. Just like, oh, oh, there's Ville Vida here. Let's let's have some case. Oh, yeah. And then let's let's pour. Some of that case o- on my my cheeseburger. Yeah, it's disgusting. But you don't eat caso at someone's house. It's up for once a year. So you're like I want to get all of this. Anyway, I love that the Super Bowl has that weird essence to it though. Like even more so than it's the it's it's a day where I go into it knowing I'm gonna do terrible things to my body today. And it's just that's just the tradition. It's like a purge almost you also rate together the pseudo we eat and drink. I've really is. And like there aren't people that are like, oh, I'm gonna get wasted today. College football, Saturdays, whoever you are when you're in your twenties. Whatever you wake up and you're like, oh, I'm going to get hammered black the phone. Watching football all day. I'm gonna drink beer and get drunk. Nobody says that for the Super Bowl you like I'm going to eat all the terrible food. I'm going to watch every commercial. I'm gonna sit on the couch, and maybe lazy as fuck. I made shit my pants. You're more likely to do that than to vomit to alcohol consumption. Yeah. It's not about getting blackout. It's about eating until you poop your pants. That's so we're looking forward to that. Maybe we'll have to get back to this on the Super Bowl episode. Fuck. Yes. But yeah, that was that was my observations while sober at a bar. Thank you for that. Mike. Oh, also, you're very loud. Loud of. Yeah. Yeah. The the that's a thank you general volume greatly at just as I mentioned people get drunk or the general populations alcohol. Their volume is something that is increasingly it raises lowly but steadily over the course of the night, as you would assume, you know, people get drunker they talk louder, and then you're all competing with each other. And then the music or the game or whatever by. At the end of the night. You're all fucking screaming. It's insane. Like, you literally are yelling at each other. And you don't even realize it unless you're one of the like four unfortunate souls in the bar who are just dead dry. Sober is a priest wondering why in the name of God that I get myself into the situation. And then the other thing I will say before we move on. I and I have one other thing as well. Then we have two other. I a lot of you the thing. I always I like to watch people trying to hook up at the bars. I know that sounds really creepy. But like you have nothing else to do and I'm high. So it's funny to me. I'm not high right now, I'm high the bar usually. So I'll watch I'll watch dudes that are trying to get assets. And a lot of you guys. I'll just say this. You think you're being sly or you're making moves it's so painfully obvious that you're just desperate to fuck in throwing yourselves at each other with little to no real strategy go in with something some plan. Okay. Because most of you were just you get four or five beers in you, and you're like, all right. I can talk to girls now, and then you just fucking embarrass yourself. And you wonder why you never closing? I'm telling you as a sober, dude. Who's able to now watch you it's because you have no plant, and you're just doing all of the things we just described talking too closely talking too loudly, spewing the smell of tequila onto these repeating yourself you repeating you're you're doing all of these things. So look don't look at this as a judgment segment because it's not look at it as an opportunity to maybe knock some of these things off your junk. In behavior list. That's what I would look at people. Don't listen. Well, this is something else you really oh. They don't give a they wanna talk. And they don't wanna listen. And this is this is this. If we go back to your point, this is not a good way to meet people. Now, it's the worst way to you. Don't go to a happy hour like a networking happy hour and just talk you go there to meet people in less than you want to hear what they have to say it should be the same. If you're trying to get chicks you want, you should have to know them as a person before they're going to sleep with any way. This works ninety percent of the time, you need genuine engagement, which is not. So I mean, look, I am the most guilty person of this back in the day on the same boat. As many of you never at any point in a bar when I was five six drinks in on my way to blackout town. Did I ever think, you know, what I'd like to have a real conversation with a woman tonight? Yeah. Never struck me a single time in my fucking life. You know, not to not to sound like some sort of pickup artists podcasts. But my friend, my friend, Danny who who has I I would say is I plus appointments, ladies, man. Okay. He said, he's. He does. Well with women. He has many consensual relationships with women. Good. Here's what I've learned watching Danny sober, Andrew. But especially over as I watched him in action the other night, Danny no matter how many drinks he has does not talk. Danny listens. Danny will go he will pay attention. He makes I contact. He will approach a woman. He's he's fearless and approaching but he does not do it in a manner. Like he doesn't go up to them to talk to them where as when you're watching sober. And you watch all these failed attempts to women. It's mostly because they talked to women Dan, just like says Hello and lets them talk. He cornices their drunkenness. Yes. And desire to speak and be heard and just says, yes. And laughs a lot. This do over the years phnomenom because I let me just I'm trying to think of the way can phrase this without getting anyone in trouble. A two of the best closers I've ever met in my life. Were two of the quieter people men to with quieter dudes that I've ever met in my life. And granted they were giving the gift of good looks by got above. But mostly they kept the fucking mouths shut. And whether that was intentional or not with the two that I have in particular in mind, I think it's different. And it really doesn't matter. The point is this. That's your strategy you discussing about Danny keep your keeping your mouth shut can go a long way at the bar. We 'cause the less you say, the the the you just ruining the fantasy with every word that comes out of your mouth. You're lessening your stock with every word that comes out of your mouth. So the less that you can say the more you remain. A fantasized version of yourself in the opposite sex is brain or the same sex. And that's just that's just a little bit of advice. Yeah. The the final thing that I would say and to come off my high horse is I feel better about society than I did before. Because and here's why I feel like people generally want to treat people. Well, and I'm just surprised there aren't more fights and more violence in in in drinking environments, dude. Yes. Because and this makes me optimisic for our society because people don't wanna fight really nine. Not nearly as much as you would think I'm not one hundred eight here. There was a guy at the bar. There might have been to Rams fans there. No one's was wearing Rams gear. Remember, we're in Austin, Texas. Yeah. This is a Cowboys town. Yeah. There's one guy the Cowboys through a late pick or whatever happened. I forget to that are no the Rams got a late. I down that ended the game. He's basically closed it out. Yeah. That put them in a kneel down situation. And there was one guy to our left who was a table of like five people, and he just started cheering. Talk. The dow. Dallas y'all. These and other things like you that guy that guy and. Nobody beat is that nobody beat us that nobody step to them his friends like he obviously missed friends uncomfortable. We walk like, I know I've been that guy before not necessarily. So I've been the one Mizzou fan and a place where there are no other Mizzou fans and cheer like. Yeah, we're the fucking best get some of that mother fucker. Yeah. But I've never been like fuck you Kansas. You guys are deuce bags in Kansas. I'm not gonna do that. He's not when you like actively INA Kansas bar that would be you. You don't want do that. And this guy this guy really by all accounts could have been beaten down. But he wasn't. And I was surprised that nobody stepped tuned to beat. I kind of looked at him. And I was saying next coach Bobby and we looked at each other like oh shit. I guess I guess SP, but nobody really day thing. Nobody really cared. Everybody really knew those weren't real fighting words. I didn't really have to beat that guy up to treat teach him a lesson. Just a prick that guy's miserable. Fuck that guy. I am with you though. The it's an interesting concept because the first. Times you go sober to the bar. You're like, you're you or at least for me, my initial reaction was to expect disgust. And I got a lot of that. I won't lie. I was disgusted by a lot of the behavior. But over the course of me having to go to more and more bars and weddings and parties without alcohol in my system. You really do learn like people for the most part mean, well, they just want to enjoy themselves. They wanna blow some steam off, and they wanna fuck and in between there are assholes who come out trying to cause disruptions and fights. And the just want to see the world, burn or whatever. But for the most part people are genuinely good, and I do get a feeling a comfort like e. 'cause look man just because we go about it different ways. Again, we're trying to accomplish the same thing you with your alcohol me with my weed, and that's a bit of an escape from the stressors of everyday life and the tension that can build up over the over the days weeks months of every single year. So. Look we're on the same team here. And again, this is it up being like one of my favorite segments. Because not all this stuff is fascinating to me. Obviously, I'm biased as a guy who's got, you know, substance abuse stuff and has quit drinking. But I do love conceptually these what vices serve what purpose vices serve to us as humans, and so I love talking about this shit. Anyway, what will move on? But that was things you notice that the bar while sober, Mike. Thank you for your observations. I think that was a great conversation. Good stuff.

The triumphant return of true detective so true detective season three aired the first two episodes last night on HBO is an interesting strategy change from our boys at Home Box Office for those of you unfamiliar with the true detective saga. First of all, I will not be saying anything to spoil anything about the new oral seasons at all during the segment season. One of true detective came out on HBO in January of twenty fourteen almost exactly five years before the season three premiere, and it is largely considered to be one of the best seasons of television ever produced ever period bar. None. It's top-five notice gushing for me personally. Wow. It starred Matthew mcconaughey as detective rust coal. Woody Harrelson is detective Marty Hort. They were you two main characters and it was. Not it's not even in a discussion one of the best pieces of entertainment ever created. So, wow, this is high praise from I'm serious. It was really really truly is one of the best things I've ever seen so season two. I can't believe it's been five years. Also. Yeah, that's aging so rapidly but season two was much antiquated as a result and they had a seemingly killer cast for season two. They had Rachel mcadams Colin Farrell, dense Vaughn, Taylor kitsch. But something went horribly wrong with season two. And if flopped, so so hard, I mean almost as hard as you could flop. It was one of the most disappointing sophomore seasons ever, maybe the most disappointing for real period. And as a result a lot riding on season three. This went from one of the most promising franchises on television to potentially the most disappointing from season one to two in the season. Three is obviously very important. So what did they do? They went and got incredible actor Mahershala Ali, I can never say this man's first name. I I apologize. So profusely Mahershala. I believe this out said, oh, he's the he's the black dude from moonlight among many other things. He's an incredible actor he was in house of cards. He kind that was kind of the first thing that I saw him in where he really became you know, note, I mean recognizable to me. Anyway, he they got him as the main character creator. Nick Piz lotto is the guy running the show still and he's got some help with him. And again, we saw the first two episodes last night, and for the most part, it was solid. This was a good start laying a good foundation for season two. I mean season three rather. Sorry. I thought the episode one in particular was very good. I thought two was. A little less a little a little lacking compared to episode one. But that is just the way ten episode television shows work, also, it's I believe it's ten episodes. Anyway, I hope I'm right might be eight hope it's ten fingers crossed. But that's just the way goes not every episode is going to be, you know, nonstop excitement. There are building episodes plot points need to be moved around things need to progress in order to make sense. And last night was a good start. I genuinely agree with this generally agree with this statement from the New York Times on the first two episodes. Here's a quote from a piece of writing from an author that I forgot to take note of any. It's in the New York Times pizzo lotto script goes easy on the hard boiled Piz lotto 'isms for the time being which allows his strengths for baroque plotting to shine through more. Clearly now, those of you who watched season two, you'll remember the biggest disaster aside from the story not being interesting in all of the characters being all over the place in it genuinely being a mess. The biggest disaster was the lines the writing it was like his lotto did way too much cocaine, and he tried to force a bunch of really deep like thoughtful lines into this into this particular season every single line of which he gave Vince Vaughn completely tanked and fell flat. Vince Vaughn has some of the funniest lines and television history in season two of true detective in their unintentionally funny. They're not supposed to be funny at all they're supposed to be serious. Those are his lotto wisdom's he would plug in these godawful lines. I'm not gonna go sit here and pull individual ones. I mean, just the fucking worst. And there weren't many of those in these first two episodes. In fact, there were a couple that I noticed like, you know, what that was a his lotto wisdom until somebody fucking fixed it in one of the people helping him. I guarantee has got him smoothing those out is helping him smooth those out. So that's not such a noticeable terrible part of the show true detected, these Piz Latta. Wisdom's fucking awful said those are mostly removed, and again, the to the New York Times for that observation that very much is a big part of why thought this one was more enjoyable when you get those out of the way as they said, Nick his lotto, the dude who I do believe to be an extremely talented creator based based on just season one alone. It that guy. Never does anything else in his life ever. He will still be an inspiration in an idol to me day on just season one or two detected. That's fucking good. At is. When he gets all his bullshit out of the way. It really does allow the guy is incredible at at at portraying the darkness in the world, and in our society, and in in crime in the nature of crime, and in the horrible crimes that take place within our society and within law enforcement, and he's incredible. At that. What what the New York Times refers to as baroque plotting, and it really does shine through more. Clearly once you. Remove all the terrible Piz lotto 'isms. So we've got a good couple. I episodes Mr. Mahershala Elise acting is on the fucking charts carries the first two Soad's, regardless of narrative. Now, it's going to be up to his a lotto to give Ali a story worth his salt. And we'll see how it unfolds, but for now, I do remain hopeful that the triumphant return of true detective will indeed be triumphant next segment. Stuff the Wikipedia when you're high which you're gonna wanna type into the Wikipedia machine today. Boys and girls is two words. Pig war. Pig war. The pig. War was a confrontation in eighteen fifty nine way back a between the United States in the United Kingdom over the British US border in the San Juan islands between Vancouver island and the mainland. The pig. War was called as such because it was triggered by the shooting of a pig. We're going to get into that. It's also been called the pig. Episode the pig and potato war. The San Juan boundary dispute or the northwestern boundary dispute. I'm not sure why we couldn't land on a name for this the pig war. Seems plenty good to me. Those other ones are shit the pig and potato wars kind of tight pig episodes. Okay. I think pig wars the clear winner history should have run with that. Let's abandon these other ones. What are we doing? No shots were exchanged no human casualties. This is a bloodless conflict. A dispute solved without a shot fired. But it's an interesting one. So we're going to get into it. There was the treaty the Oregon treaty have June fifteen. Eighteen forty six that resolved the Oregon boundary dispute initially by dividing, the Oregon country slash Columbia district between the United States and Britain along the forty ninth parallel of north latitude to the middle of the channel which separates the continent from Vancouver island, and then southernly southern southerly suddenly through the middle of the said channel and the strait of Juan, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah. So there there was an agreement made in eighteen forty six, but they're actually two straits that could be called the middle of the channel. There's Herro straight along the west side of the San Juan islands and the resort straight on the east side. So in eighteen forty six there was still some uncertainty about the geography of the region. I the most commonly available maps were those of somebody named George Vancouver published in seventeen ninety eight and of Charles Wilkes published in eighteen forty five in both cases, the maps were unclear about the vicinity of the southeastern coast Vancouver island in the Gulf. And as a result Haro strait is not fully clear either which makes this whole thing kind of unsettled -able. So in eighteen fifty six the US and Britain set up a boundary commission to try to solve the number of issues regarding this international boundary, including the water boundary from the strait of Georgia to the strait of Juan de Fuca. So these meetings were ongoing, but a lot of ambiguity remained did on June fifteenth eighteen fifty nine exactly thirteen years after the adoption of the Oregon treaty that ambiguity led to direct conflict. A guy named Lyman Cutler an American farmer who had moved on to San Juan claiming rights to live there under the donation land claim act found a large black pig rooting in his garden. He found this pig eating his tubers in. Apparently, this was not the first time this has happened. So Cutler gets upset I like to picture this. Being Jay Cutler, if you wanna play along gets pissed sees the pig. Seton is tubers. He fucking shoots it. He kills it. Boom pig is debt. Turns out this pig was owned by an Irishman Charles Griffin who was employed by the Hudson Bay company to run a sheep ranch. He also owned several pigs that he allowed to roam freely. This was one of them that just got blasted in the face. These two had lived in peace until this incident Cutler and Griffin. So color offered him ten bucks to compensate for the pig, but Griffin was unsatisfied with the offer and demanded one hundred dollars. I have to assume that's a lot of money back in the day following that reply Cutler believed he should not have to pay for the pig because the pig been trespassing on his land. There's a story that claims Cutler said to Griffin it was eating my potatoes in Griffin replied, it is up to you to keep your potatoes out of my pig. So British authorities threatened to arrest Cutler in an American settlers, call for military protection. And this whole fucking thing explodes. The next thing, you know, we've got Brigadier General hint William s Harney commanding the department of Oregon. He's dispatched captain, George Pickett and sixty six American soldiers of the ninth infantry regiment under pickets command to San Juan island with orders to prevent the British from landing at all the regiments sailed over there aboard the USS Massachusetts. They were concerned that a squatter population of Americans would begin to occupy San Juan island. If the Americans were not kept in check. So the British than sit three warships of their own under the command of captain, Geoffrey Hornby to counter, the Americans pick, it was famously quoted as saying defiantly, we'll make a Bunker Hill of it which obviously placed him in the national limelight. That's not the statement that anybody was looking for. So this this this thing. Becomes a sort of standoff it escalates by August tenth eighteen fifty nine. There are four hundred sixty one Americans with fourteen cannons. Under Colonel Silas, Casey that are opposed by five British warships mounting seventy guns carrying twenty one hundred and forty men you've got the governor of the colony of Vancouver island James Douglas getting involved. He's ordering British Rear, Admiral, Robert Baines, Dilan marines on San Juan island and engaged. The American soldiers under the command of Brigadier General, general hardy, the whole thing's a stupid mess over a over a squabble. About a pig is insane. News of this crisis reaches Washington, London. Obviously officials from both nations are shocked and immediately take action to try to calm, the potentially explosive international incident surrounding pig and as a result of these negotiations both sides agree to retain joint, military occupation of this island until a final sediment settlement can be reached. They both reduced their presence to a token force of no more than one hundred men. You got the English camp. Set up on the north end of San Juan the American camp on the south end on a high windswept meadow, subtle suitable for artillery barrages against shipping and today the Union Jack still flies above the English camp, which is in quotes being raised and lowered daily by Park Rangers making it one of the few places without diplomatic status where US government employees regularly hoist the flag of another country, though, this is actually for commemorative purposes. So this state of affairs that we just described where they British Americans negotiate. They both agree to retain, joint, military occupation. That goes on for twelve more years, then the dispute peacefully resolved after more than a decade of confrontation and military bluster during which time the local British authorities consistently lobbied London to seize back, the Puget Sound region entirely puke. Puget anyway, the Americans elsewhere or busy with the civil war, blah, blah, blah, October twenty first eighteen seventy two they finally have a commission that decides in favor of the United States. There's an arbiter who chooses the American preferred marine boundary via hero straight to the west of the islands over the British prefer preference for Rosario strait, which later they're east British troops evacuate, San Juan island in the whole thing comes to a peaceful conclusion thank you to this arbiter general or I'm sorry. German emperor. Wilhelm the first who was chosen to act as arbiter he referred the issue to a three man arbitration commission which met in Geneva for nearly an entire year to solve this problem. Again, all started by one pig. Individually on November twenty fifth eighteen seventy two the British withdraw their Royal Marines from the British camp. The Americans followed by July eighteen seventy four Canadian politicians and public already angry with the Oregon treaty or once again upset that Britain had not looked after their interest in candidate sought greater autonomy and international fairs created this whole situation between Canada and the UK and the pig war after all that is commemorated in San Juan island national historical park. That is your stuff that Wikipedia when you're high pig war. Don't shoot other people's pigs next segment. Houston rap song of the week. Please don't have done this. I don't think we have Houston rap song of the week this week is ghetto boys. Damn it feels good to be a gangsta. We've talked about the ghetto boys. And I know we've had their songs is Houston rap song of the week before. They're in American rap group from fifth ward, Houston, Texas, consisting of Scarface. Bushwick Bill in Willie d this track. Damn it. Feels good to be a gangsta was one of two unreleased tracks that appeared on the nineteen ninety two compilation uncut dope. Ghetto boys bests, and it was released as a single with a music video. This is one the definitely boosted their popularity worldwide. And this is probably the song that ghetto boys are best known for outside the city of Houston because in nineteen ninety nine damn it. Feels good to be a gangster was used in Mike judge's comedy satire film office space. It's the very beginning. You'll remember I believe the character's name is Michael a very white individual dressed in the most business casual outfit possible in his shitty. Ass car. Stuck in traffic on the way to work, wrapping damn it. Feels good to be a gangster. Anyway. So that's. That story of damn it. Feels good to be a gangs to being an office space the group's name. Geto boys comes from a deliberate misspelling of the word ghetto spelled G E T O boys for their first two albums. They actually spelled it with the English. Standard g g h e t t o but then they changed it with their third album to GTO, and they used it ever since they a very very prominent rap group, that's credited for putting southern hip. Hop on the map and inspiring a legion of access is funny. I thought this was Larry. So we compete includes list of acts that the ghetto boys have apparently directly influenced. This is that list to pock biggie, Eminem Yuji K TI, those are all very important goodie mob or you'll be very important outcast. Fifty cent. Camilion air, Jay z Lil Wayne, Rick Ross, young Jisi, juvenile mystical. And then insane clown posse. I just didn't expect to see ICP on the in their one last coup factoid about the song. Damn it feels good to be against songs. Final verse is is done by j prince president of rap a lot records, the man who most recently made news for seemingly solving the dispute between Drake and push t before things could boil over into violence or ruin lives or anything. He's been around forever. Houston legend does the final verse on this song. And he wraps it from the perspective of president, George H W Bush rest in peace. The the verse was meant to make the controversial point that the president of the United States is in fact, the biggest gangster of them all. Next segment. A kid wrote an essay about mica. Now, I don't even know the story. So Mike is going to have to tell it to you. I was just told the put this on them rundown. Michael what what happened here? What is that? What is this key essay? Yeah. I got a DM the other day. Let me pull this up for a second. I I got gotta DM from a a fan, and we hear from lots of fans, it's really a one of the best things about working here. And doing what we do makes us feel appreciated and loved his name is Alex. I I guess it's a dude. I guess it could be a woman. I don't know. It's just Alex. I guess I should check the DM. Does it matter not particularly, and I don't really know where the DM came from because I have two Twitter accounts. You know, how people don't see color plus Instagram. Right. I don't see color. I don't see sex anymore. Everybody. Everybody just one blob to me. So this is all hard for me. But that being said this person this Alex character, a DM and said that like we have Ross an iron inspiration to I'm gonna say him. Okay. I'm just gonna go with him. And. That's awesome. It's going. It's like, yeah. And I actually just I'm going to Mizzou. I I applied and got in and I'm gonna go to Mizzou because of what of your inspiration. Okay. Which is crazy that there are people listening to us that are they're planning the next four years of their lives based on Mike experience. He went to Mizzou because you loved it so much. Yes. Basic cut. The check miss. It is the world's first and finest journalism schools. I've often said I had a wonderful time there. I have no regrets. I'm very glad that I spent time at the university of Missouri. Specially the Missouri school of journalism as it's known. So then Mizzou people never shut up about the journalism school. Well, it is the world's first and finest we all wear, unfortunately, this point anyway, Alex tells me that because of this show, and because of me he's going to the university of Missouri. And I actually any actually wrote a college essay about it. Okay. That's awesome. And I was our air said they mentioned. Me. And I was like, oh that's fucking insane. You need to Ford this to me. So here's what he wrote. When I begin our let me start again when I began the college process, my mother, an accomplished DuPont award winning television reporter told me this, quote, if you're serious about journalism, there are few places better to be than at Mizzou from that point on the university of Missouri has been a bright light on my radar. It was also around this time when I began listening to the Ross Bohlin podcast an internet comedy podcast hosted by New York Times bestselling author Ross Bohlin suck with his producer and Mizzou graduate, Mike winer in one of the episodes of the podcast mica was speaking about his time in Mizzou's journalism program having listened to the show for about a month at the time. I had tremendous respect for Mike and his communication skills after I learned that Mike accredited Mizzou for success. I decided that I desired a similar education to his holy fuck. So there it is you inspired the youth of America to go to a. A college look at you you sick. Fuck look at you. Also, seriously, Mizzou what what your deal Nowak ignition for for our boy over here recruit. I still haven't made the distinguished alumni page on Wikipedia or anywhere else is wrong. You know, it would be really wrong if people hopped in the Wikipedia and added me to distinguish alumni, I do have a verified blue checkmark for the Missouri school of journalism. But just be the biggest bummer if everybody got on Wikipedia and just kept adding you as a distinguished alumni, no matter how many times we competed tried to remove it or change it or the school tried to get it taken down wouldn't that? Just be a shame. You know, we we certainly it was a group of people think we hear what you do something that crazy if only so big shouts to Alex. He's gonna do it at Mizzou. You know, it he's looking for an internship here of which I probably can't provide as well. But I do appreciate it. He's gonna kill it at Mizzou, and if anybody else's interested in being. Tiger. You just holler at your boy. But shouts to Alex. This is this is great. We've now been mentioned in ecology apologists caused application. Whatever this was and is successful when it sounds. Yes. Yes. I'm gonna say one hundred percent because of us bigshots Alex big shots. All the Tigers out there. I wonder if the rest of the essay was about something like incredibly important like cancer research or something like that. Just the opening is the that, by the way, incredibly well read my research in this field, we have cured polio. In the in the third world. Also, I'd like to go to zoo because of a podcast Pontiac. Listen to. Do you does a very well written first paragraph though, and it's an honor to be mentioned in a in a college application. We appreciate y'all that's pretty cool. And that was a kid wrote an essay about my next and final segment the mini saints of Newark. So over the weekend, I found out some huge news. And this may be something that was already out there. But it wasn't for me in a and I just became aware of it. They're actually creating a prequel to my favorite arguably this is still up in the air dependent on game of thrones season. Eight my favorite existing finished television series ever. The sopranos is getting a prequel film that is going to be titled the mini saints of Newark that apparently is going to revolve around Dickey multi Santi, if you're if you remember Christopher multi was one of the main characters in the sopranos his dad was discussed often Dickey Motha Santi. He's going to be the main central character in this movie that many saints of Newark. Played by Allesandro, Nevada. I'm not familiar with him. But apparently, he's famous and very good at his job. The whole thing is going to be produced by David chase. So he's doing it. David. Chase is the guy who created this Franco's. Thank god. He's the one doing this. And he didn't sell off the fucking rights to some other random asshole. He's gonna do the mini saints of Newark. He wrote the script with the sopranos writer Lawrence Connor, which is also huge news for sopranos fans. It's not it least upfront with the very little bit of information that we have so far sounds like they may have gone legit route in this isn't just a cash grab. I always expected there to be a sopranos or sopranos spin off style movie at some point just because the show is too big and too famous and once they'd given it an extra ten years to grow kind of viral. You know, as as people who never watched it back in the day get into it. Watch it on streaming etc. The audience grows, bigger and bigger and bigger. Right. Well, inevitable you want to cash in on that. And I assume that at some point they would do some godawful fuck of a movie that pissed me off this doesn't sound like that though. Because Alan Taylor. The guy who helmed many episodes of the sopranos madman game of thrones is gonna direct this movie. That's a huge choice. He is for those of you who listen to always clams and cockles against shout out to the clamp 'em. You've heard Alan Taylor's name many times they're shooting in April. They're gonna start shooting in April. Which is ironically when game of thrones airs, April fourteenth season eight as I mentioned before subscribed to always just clams and cockles, and I feel confident about this thing so far, which is frankly a little shocking to me. So hopefully, the mini saints of Newark ends up something that does Justice to the series the sopranos. There is going to be a young Tony soprano in this movie, and it's going to focus on racial tensions between African Americans and Italian Americans in New York Newark, New Jersey during the seventies tensions, which which are referenced. And in some cases, even portrayed during the initial run of the soprano series. And I'm very much looking forward to this the mini saints of Newark start shooting in April fingers crossed. We probably won't see it for a few years, but fingers crossed that they crushed this because the sopranos universe. I would be very upset to see a black Mark put on its name by movie. So hopefully, they best wishes to David chase Allesandro novel. Alan Taylor is directing Lawrence Connor who wrote it with them as make it. Good. Do it Justice.

He's so great I can't believe how awesome he is more sports talk. Yes. Couldn't get any better, but it spotter rectal is back. He's so great I can't believe how awesome he is more sports talk. Yes. Our two of of simulating sports. The Guy rectal lines available one, eight, hundred, eight, seven, eight, one, eight, hundred, seventy, seven, five, two, nine Ray. Parker. Junior who you GONNA call we'll call him. At ten forty. Good Buddy. The. X. Rangers have shipped magnitude. That's kind of a honor. Obviously, we're waiting to see what they do with lance land. WHO's the next chip to fall. This is smart for Texas to do it if you can get a schmuck like to give you. A couple of ballplayers for a guy like that a rental. Not just a rental. I mean think about this usually you get a guy for two months on a rental. How what are you going to get out of him and what? Five weeks. So we're looking at here. Less than five, weeks. You'RE NOT GONNA get a lot out of this guy. So. They said Lance Lynn as the next guy to go. A pitcher funny thing is is I was thinking about Trevor K.. Hiller, he was dealing for the giants. And I give a guy like that credit these these Brett Anderson Trevor Kahlil guys you're like in the back of your mind are you thinking or the funnier? My just give it up already. In. Kale. Did get a ring with the cubs gotTa rang you got a Lotta money just. Why not keep pitching people keep signing you and you are effective. But I'm surprised that the braves looking for depth made a deal with the Orioles ticket Tommy Malone. Hami Malone. Why thought was out of baseball. Is Era this year by the by the way is even worse than miners it's a five six eight. So. Tommy. Give them credit though. You Know How baseball reference? They will. Show Your Jersey then they'll show the the number on your team. And I'm baseball reference Tommy Malone as nine. And he's about to get a tenth. Already six that was at the nationals fifty seven. That was what the as then forty, nine, thirty, three, thirty, three, twenty, nine, Fifty, seven, sixty, nine, fifty, three. Wow. And he's still hanging around. I think when you look at. Lance Lynn you kind of think we'll Yankee's right with another guy can picture. If a lot of fat pitchers over the years from goose gossage to. David Wells you can kind of see big good the Babe Ruth Gut the pinstripes there. I mean. The TR Sullivan was saying that the Rangers. Would Want David Garcia Lance land. And that's just not going to happen. And your top pitching prospect for eight, you should ask though. You should definitely ask. They say, this is all these rumors here. Looking to Jeff Pass and said, the padres are still looking at Joey Gallo. That's another one there. The Joey Gallo has also been linked to Oakland. It'd be interesting. I mean, Chris, Davis on useless at this point, which is of sad because. I like the Guy I liked his quiet demeanor and that's the thing the lethargy. Lethargy is okay. If you're doing well, but the lethargy kind of looks like. Oh are we there yet kind of looks like that after a while. When you're doing bad doing badly doing poorly. bigly. That's the thing I mean the rangers right now they're. They're in the captured see they're just there saying you know. I'm on onto Costco will. What can we do for? They still got lance then they slow got Joey Gallo and if they're plan their cards, right they are going back and forth with teams. I don't think the Mike Minor thing I mean I'm sure they're like, Oh, you're going to give us a player to be named later. We want to, and then billy bean goes are you to you will. Okay. Sounds good. the Jason Castro thing I'll give him credit to you because you know he was on the last rose. And you think about all the guys on that team. That were part of the turnaround. they still hadn't called up George Springer. Had that Guy Singleton. At first, they gave all that money to. They had Robbie. Grossman. At a lot of guys who were not. That I'll today but really their main piece much bigger than I'll do. They was their first round pick out of. Once, against Stanford Jayson Castro. He was supposed to be the chip they were going to build around but catchers from Stanford AJ hinch first round pick elements of the as an assignment on Christian. Vasquez. But they brought him in. So I mean. By the way John, Hayman is reporting Franscisco indoors not going anywhere. I'd only a top ten player in baseball, but he's irreplaceable. is other guys. He's pitchers and Saigol will move the next guy throwing A. In on Mike. Minor. You would hope that there would be some better deals than these. These teams who are contending because as I said WHO. Who does minor even replace in the rotation? And Sell. The kick the tires on Zander BOGART's you're looking for shortstop. What I'd rather have zander Bogart's or Marcus semi obviously, I'd rather have bogart's. I'm not a big simeon guy I mean I I like the fact that he's from all Cerita Oh, and he went to. High School in Berkeley and. To Cal obviously in. Berkeley. Grew up a giants fan though both his parents are from San Francisco. So he said, sorry as fans as where my barry bonds. Jersey the school. I I've never understood why I mean it's cool. When someone grows up in as fan I I usually will mention it just because it's kind of fun but I don't hate a guy. If he grew up rooting for another team. this guy is a giants who cares. What are you want? On them signed this Guy Matt Doherty and Irish international and it was kind of funny because. they put a video about of him, not talking just opening up a PC. Looking at his time line on twitter from Twenty, eight from twenty twelve. It said I love arsenal forever and ever and ever I mean huge fan and he kind of looks at the camera and a Winston. We like oops and it said, do you want to delete tweet and he said, yes and he believed. So it's funny how when you think about you know lance land when he was with Saint Louis and he was very effective there. And the Rangers needed pitching and look. Lance Lynn next year is due like seven and a half million. That's nothing for a lousy pitcher much less a good one. Rangers Fan. You could say look we got a hold on him. Well, you hold onto him if you're gonNA, make your move next year. Are you going to make your move next year. I don't think so. So that's a guy that has to be dealt. It's just a matter of being. Do you always WanNa hang on the fringe and say, maybe we can make the playoffs like the giants maybe we can make the playoffs no, no, and you contend. You have a real shot of winning a title. If you don't, then let's build. Let's build for that team over to the fans instead of being just like maybe we can make the playoffs year after year after year after year that's the Rangers. Maybe, we can do something bill the team because some young guys in. Anaheim ever understood that either. Are Coming back we'll talk some sports. Doc. This is a Potter's field.

He's dumb. Rick till always goes commando. Commando I tell you. I'll come back to the show rectal with you come into the next segment we will have. Parker. Junior. Remember him. He had a number one hit. You on Melita everything new. ghostbusters that's what it was. Something strange in neighborhood nineteen, eighty, four, y'all. Remember I saw Grand Lake Theater And I thought it was a tremendous film. I really did. It was the summer. Before. My Sophomore Year, in college. I remember thinking wow, that was a good movie. and. They made nine sequels. I believe. Children of the corn get back to the baseball. Talk. In a second. But an interesting cut in the NFL. And that is the divorce of the in the rocky marriage between the Jaguars and Leonard Fournette. Leonard for net the fourth overall pick just a few years ago. Remember when he held out of the ball game and college to get ready. For. The draft. He was cut. They Klein. And his fifth year option. So they put out trade feelers, nobody was Biden. And Doug Marrone, the head coach said. No one would offer even a seventh round pick for him. Now, first of all. You need to tell your fan base what the hell are you doing jackass at least get a seventh round pick farm and he's telling the fan base we tried and we couldn't. But the other thing is that's how it cold blooded to the player because you're like, we couldn't even get a dirty piece of trash for you. which is what a seventh round pick is. If you've ever like just close your eyes and reached into a dumpster. Whatever you pull out is a seventh round pick. What's an undrafted free agent? That's what's under the dumpster that's a UTA UDF EH. UNDRAFTED. DFA. So for an echoes to being four years ago, one of the most heralded draft picks and team history to a bit of a pariah. and. That's stench could also be I. Think attributed to the Jaguars who have forced to jettison a lot of top talent. If you think about. Ramsey and some of the others the grievance with the Union and Tom Coughlin who's now been fired as well. That AFC, championship game. Out they went to three years ago. With that great defense. And since that time, they are ten games under five hundred. And now they have traded. ONIC GO Kuei. To. The Minnesota Vikings. After, he refused to ever ever play again. In Jacksonville. This. He took a five million dollar pay cut. GO TO MINNESOTA. Or a two and a five. I mean that's the kind of thing where you say, okay, who who won that trade? A second round pick in the coming draft and a fifth round pick the year after that. This guy has been banging the drum for a trade out of Jacksonville for a long time. But. You saw say that now he's going to be. Paired with Danielle Hunter it's GonNa be. As little duo there in Minnesota great defense has got better I'm. Zimmer's gotta be salivating over that. So the question is what happens with fornet? Where does he go? Usually people say. Raiders have just Jacobs I. Mean I would love to have a guy like nat it's well. Think about. Think about teams that desperately need running backs. And you could say New England. Already has Sony Michelle First Round pick himself. They have not been able to depend on him very much. When he's healthy. He's fine. He's not a he's good in the passing and there's nothing wrong Michelle but he's not a Belco And so right now. In camp. Apparently the patriots say that Damian Harris. You've probably never heard of no offense. This was the guy who was behind. the Dodgy Harris. With Alabama. If you watch college football you you know who is obviously but apparently Damian Harris is guy that might actually be starting over Sony. Michelle. But if you think about a proven NFL talent like for Nad. WHO I mean, this is. You bring in a guy like Cam. Newton talent like that, and then bring him in and they can maybe go together well I'm also thinking about. Tampa Bay Bucks. And they. Signed Shady McCoy to a one year deal. If if McCoy is being projected by anyone to be the lead back in in week one. That shows how desperate that they are. And I know that if you look at over the Cap Dot Com, the bucks have about two million in space. But here's the thing for net is in no position to demand big salary he can try you can be like a clown and say, no, I, want twenty, million a year. I mean right now Ronald Jones. Sean Reid. Raymond Kallay. And then go more south in the sunshine state. Let's say you're sitting in the front office and the Miami. Dolphins. Right, now you got to pick up the phone. Who who's starting tailback right now Brita I like Matt Brita. Ask Any niner fan? He'll say Nice. Things about Matt Brita. Leading chance to get foreign hat. You have upside on A MOUTH GASKIN Jordan Howard. hatrick layered. See I mean you got to tag of a lower running around back there. You need a guy to run you go. They got Kenyan Drake No, no no they turned to Kenyan drake to the cardinals. Oh. Yeah. That's right. By the way all of it's Patrick for his laws he had to leave the team out of sad. But. It's This is a team that needs a little one two punch. And then I mean a couple of others. The Rams have todd? No they don't a lot of the stuff I'm saying, I lot from myself by the way. They. Could use a bully in the backfield. And even last year girly had over thousand yards from scrimmage and fourteen touchdowns. And you could say, well, you know I'm rams fan and rams. Fran I'm Rams Fan and I love Malcolm Brown. I'll come Brown five years in the League. would. He run for two hundred yards last year. Oh. He was in the feature guy okay fine. And she rather have Leonard Fournette. Essay well depends on the prices I. Get it. See what the prices Then, one more team. and. That's a team that needs to pick a damn nickname. Are we GONNA say Washington football team all year by the way. If you say Redskins, you're not a dirty racist. You're just a football fan and it's going to be hard to change. I still say Indianapolis. By I can't even say my thing right? I still say Baltimore Colts. I still say, Chicago cardinals not that one. But Washington has needed a back forever who they've leaned on AP. They sign a P and every year they bring in somebody else and they go here replace him but they can't because Adrian Peterson can still produce. He's thirty five years old. Starting Week one and then they benched and they put in Darius guys. All Darius guys is going to be lucky to stay out of jail right now. With what he's got going on. Just, domestic violence allegations all over the place. There is a seat right there available. Leonard Fournette now they did spend a third round pick on a guy named. Antonio Gibson. He's as I said, he's running back at a memphis. He's obviously not just GONNA walk in. and start at this point. Said like right off AP at your own peril I. Remember a few years ago when the Vikings were in Oakland standing on the field. Adrian Peterson looked like he was about six thirty. Five. He's one of the tallest biggest runningback I've ever seen in person. You can still get it done but. Even you're loaded at running back, your lecture I'd like to have. That on the raiders I really would it's just not giving up a first round pick for the guy. was He's got. So. One to see one anyway. All. Right. The little football talk would keep an eye on the baseball showed line you were trade deadline. Redstone Jason Born. In Cox. Claire Danes but then occurred instantly of styles we will get back after a break here with Parker Junior. And we'll talk about ghostbusters and all that stuff and his new documentary come on back.

Nineteen eighty-four my summer before my sophomore year in college went to see ghostbusters fantastic iconic film now, an Iconic Song Sung by Ray. Burkard junior became the number one song in the country. It's also the name of a new documentary coming out who you GONNA call and it's about Ray. Parker Junior who's nice enough to join us now on the phone rate. Thanks for coming on what was the the genesis behind this project where you approached with this did was it your idea? How did it all come together? Motive is actually a France shrines idea. He did a movie called Higher Gun. And I was in part of that family, it was pretty successful and he you know after talking to me for some time, he decided the next family wanted to do was a film on me. So I was pleasantly surprised. I says well, yeah I have no argument about seeing my face at a hundred feet tall. Okay. A lot of work to put together but it it all came together. But I a lot more than you would think. For me the thing that makes you so unique is that. As a Detroit Guy, you kind of think well, you know just this sort of stereotype it like Detroit, guys are going to have that motown sound but if I think about. When I was in high school year that song the other woman that was almost pure rock and roll song and it's very, very versatile sound. How would you describe it? Well. Thank you. I can't tell the difference I. Mean I'M A. Guitar player from Detroit I grip about fifteen blocks from motown. I could walk there and it was right down the street from my high school and I used to play on all of those records as well as other records and I. Guess if I have a different found, you know don't forget I used to play on like most the Tom Jones records and seals cross records in the carpenters and Engelbert Humperdinck and all that kind of stuff too. So a lot of different things I mean I want to you know I guess Some of all the people that I've worked with in that I've learned from. Seals and Croft. So you'd walk down the street going some breeze. Going through your head. Yes, it's a lot of stuff is. Just growing up, trying to do the best you can you know? Yeah so So. What the how far back does who you're. GonNa. Well, first of all, all music goes back to the beginning because without record one or without less than one, you never get to lesson. Number Five, hundred, you know. And I always tell young kids I. Say you know it's interesting. You need to write about. A five I just saw the spirit of music knows if you cheated on five on four hundred sorta like that, I learned to play the clarinet I and elementary school. And I had to work hard on the clarinet and the you know the first year and all CD ban to play all the different gigs and then when I switched it and Utah had to work hard on the guitar. Learn how to play it to go on to with the other band so I don't think. You know that you get to one stage and you're right a big hit. Very interesting speaking at twenty. I'm a little bit about the twenty grand because if you're from Detroit, you know most of the people don't this is a very famous venue. On Fourteenth Street at one point burn down but this where you're going to start at the twenty grand. A big part of my star was at the twenty grand. The only way to compare that it's like the Cotton Rose Royce's and fancy cars and all that Kinda stuff and it was pretty Pretty. Much. The hangout in all of the action motown Chicago, would be played there for chess. Records and all that kind of stuff. And I was in the house band there with guys like James Jamerson turn out to be famous based proved played on all my girl. All became part of that van. So I was playing with Gladys Knight and the pips is one of the first thanks I was playing with their service. It was a great. Great learning experience and a lot of fun. You ever aspire to be you know. Just a background guy or you like I'm a lead man I mean, did it kind of evolved because I know some guy? I started off on drums and keyboard. Did you kind of have a sink car in? With a lot of people here like lead lines on the town. Guitar soloing. My Pin and that's a lot easier playing one note at a time even fast. But it's much harder place six strings at a time and get all six strings to play do something different and come up with the courts and the groove and all that and I don't know if you noticed. But most bans if you look at the leader to ban is the guy playing rhythm guitar and the courts like the Rolling Stones Keith. Richards right. And so all the other bands of the same because you write the songs when you're playing all the courts and all the answer Qatar that guy who's writing all the songs we ended up being a leader that. So it was always me I just wanted to play the guitar not necessarily to have my own band I hadn't got that far yet 'til I. Never, thought of Writing Song never thought of singing or any of that I just thought of playing guitar. Parker junior with us the new film who you GonNa call a documentary about his career. In the last year I have seen documentaries about producers the genius of Quincy Jones of watched. Davis decide David Foster one I've always been fascinated by now quincy Jones was a musician himself but like foster and and he could play the piano but these these producers they take great talent and they hone you and they say, this is what you do. Best. How did the producers help Byu hinder you what was it like Guitar David, foster was real good friend of mine we both kind of started off. Its. Session musicians at the same time by the way he's one heck of Seattle place for those who don't know. ME. Would've made it anyway. The Piano knees really really that. Good. So I used to go in the studio him all the time I remember his first five. Action Projects that's playing guitar on. for me personally, I've always produced on. The artist. Busters then comes out and that Song I. Always. wondered. Was it somebody like a Parker's? He's got the song for this or somebody wrote it and said you gotTa do it how did that song come together as? Well, at that point, I had about seven gold and platinum albums in a row. and Gary Male who the Vice President of Columbia pictures that time I also worked with him with Barry White and I had a couple of hits with Barry White as well. So he remembered me from those days and we hooked up again he said, hey. You're the right guy to write this song for this film and You know so he commissioned me and hired me to write the song. So in the ghostbusters song as me I wrote, it be playing both instruments I'm saying it I produced it cutting in my studio in the whole thing was done just two and a half three days. That's crazy I. Remember at the time I. my girlfriend in College said, have you noticed how sexy things that song because anybody there's something strange in the neighborhood, but you'll hear something strange like and I'm like. I have to tell you at one point in my life. I didn't think I could sing at all. And the first song I saying all the way through by myself as a woman these love just like you and. That's started making you know the the girls are really getting into the voice I was like really big like that sound and me trying to grow I mean I wasn't trying to just the way I sounded like. They were really attracted to that sound. So that kind of gave me the strength to go on sexy and he didn't even know it I like that. and. Then you go to the. Oscars and a lot of people thought you were going to win Oscar and Steve. Wonder. One for just called to say I love you and for me I, mean he's that's not as best song I'm happy for. Genius but did you Did you. Did. You think you were going to win an Oscar that night. No everybody told me ahead of time you're. Never went Oscar I mean that year so many many many times more records than Stevie right but they you know the guys that are coming. Might probably pitches they say. You're on their Phil Collins on there it was a great. Guy said. Look. These old people in Hollywood, they're gonNA vote and on their name, they know on the ballot stevie Monday. So he's got to get the upscale K with the music sounds. And they were pretty much right. They gave him and you know what? I'm not that upset about it. He's my teacher and the main. Musical. Influence in my life and I got a bad feeling and had I taken his Oscar he never spoke to me again I've been ended a relationship. So. So that either way it went. I think I. Want Right. I mean you know. They let me open the show at the fifty seven hours the big performance, and I sat right behind Stevie and what he wasn't even speaking to me they won once he wanted he stood up grabbing a big hug. Hey he said if you WANNA borrow my Oscar sometimes you can't like. Put It on myself and bring it back next week. But What's interesting is I did beat him out of the British Oscar so I went to England and beat him over there. So all ends well for a reason. Now. I, would've loved to have had an Oscar but to take out stevie wonder, it'd be like that's Kinda. Really. Not. A nice thing you know Yeah, he could've sung happy birthday and you see his name on the ballot I mean, exactly. Yeah. And last question for you when I think about the eighties and the style and you know you have the talent but you also have the look did you ever go with the Jerry? Like when you look back you kind of thing man I can't believe I was rocking that look but I was the time, right? Yeah and I wasn't trying either I mean I read to a couple of hairdressers. They said look this hairstyle next thing I know I started doing hairstyle everybody's dot com and they give you the rape parching. You look if I really I have a look I didn't notice that. I had look. Yeah. So I was never really liked a social butterfly guy never really dated many movie stars although I did they Miss America teenage American, a couple of mooks but I never wanted to get in.

Now will disappoint advocates who had hoped to avoid massive budget cuts by law, California cannot run a deficit so without new revenues. And cuts to state services and agencies may be triggered this fall and next year Mike Herald with the Western Center on law and poverty says, the bills would have raised an estimated twenty three billion dollars funds. He says are needed to prevent widespread suffering on top the chaos already wrought by the pandemic. These matters would prevent devastating pets, things like the K. through twelve system to childcare medical benefits in home support services.

Dave Clowney WHO WANNA twenty million dollars a year think about the fact that. Allogeneic. got. Kuei. To the Vikings I said he went down to the thirteen million dollar mark. Left five million on the table in Jacksonville just to get the hell out you know you really WanNa leave when you're leave five million dollars on the table and that's not. You know Patrick mahomes going from five six to five a one. Says Eighteen to thirteen that is a lot of cash. That's almost one third of your salary. You're gonNA leave on the table. Think about what that does to. Dave in Clowney. If a guy like that, who's better as at thirteen, you think he's GonNa get his twenty. He's a ten million dollar player, which is nothing to sneeze that. He is a ten million dollar a year player. Question, really? I think he got ask yourself if you'RE A. Fan of the Jags and you think about a team that was so close. And you know and now men's shoe mania over but. Ailing Ramsey is gone and ornette is cud and. Mr Yanic has to go away for a couple of Hicks aren't even first rounders. You just wonder about a team that reminds you may be of Miami two years ago or Cleveland three years ago. And the question really. Is. You have to go to the top with Shaheed Con. Is Loyalty. The GM Dave Caldwell and to the head coach Doug Marrone you could say are either I don't think there's any middle ground. It's either something to be admired or something to shake your head out. Because I think most people are baffled around the league that these two guys called marrone who orchestrated this complete mess along with Tom Coughlin. Botching. Lot, of, pixes well. They're still in control, and in fact, they're signed through next year. Is that logical? And do they have nine lives? The said you know shod as he goes nuts III but he goes by. Con. Also owns Fulham football club by the way in the west end in London. It it's easy to really just throw this on Coughlan and yeah, he was a part of the problem, but it's disingenuous to see that many players one on one out just because of one old guy, he wasn't even running the show anymore. and. So cons results at own as an owner member. He's like we gotTa Take Tarp soft off. That looks ridiculous. What are we the as? we will sell out this stadium. And yet. You Get to the AFC championship game with this amazing defense, and now you're just a whatever team and it's it's maddening that stalemate with in Gakugei that devolved all the way until nearly September. For finally, doing what I guess was inevitable and just moving on as they did with Ramsey everyone, the league knew. that. He was. GonNa Follow Ramsey's template. This is how you get out of Jacksonville Florida. And it will work and it did. Throughout the process. The mixed messages of the Jaguars. Really, true intentions you go back to the combine. And when this all came up and you talked about the asking price and apparently was over the moon. And they kind of knew all along that. They would just sort of wait wait wait until they had to get out. If there's any argument to be made on handle. On how they handle this situation, it would be why did you do with this way because players talk and the Jaguars Rep with players and agents is very poor right now. And One anonymous agents said my my guy said, he'd rather retire than go to the jags and he's talking out of his booty right now. But that's a problem with the locker room. With fifty, three, Alpha males. You know. Worst guy on a football team is the most famous guy from that guy's hometown big city but. I mean, would it makes sense to load up on rookies with all these draft picks and then send them right back to the. Same people who overseen this dumpster fire. Is it too easy to just fire everyone when you know you got good people in there and it's not their fault. Don't now I mean. On right now. Has Time to consider what he wants to do but I think the losses are just gonNA keep mounting one, eight, hundred, eight, seven, eight play. Also another article by reputable reputable writer who said. That the chiefs will have a stranglehold on the AFC for many years ahead and when you look at New England and you could say that's what they did and you look at Mahomes and you can say, hey, Andy Reid mahomes. Those are two offensive guys. Now, they could do like. All, he's defensible check and Brady you're can have that type of thing for the next ten years fifteen years and I could see that but that was a very different case and that was almost like a one off that had never really happened before. You know we've had dynastic teams when you think about steelers another but. what Tom Brady had gone in New England can Kansas City copy it I don't know but it's the same sort of thing when Kevin Durant went to the warriors and everyone said well, they're going to win the next four championships for sure now in the fifth year I'm like wait a minute wait what Lebron not one not two not. Ron Played, in four with the heat, he lost two on one to right so. Say Well they're going to win the next now it's ridiculous and yeah, the warriors got to with Katie they did. That was great. I was there. It's fantastic. But to just say that the chiefs have a stranglehold. As long as Mahomes is healthy, they are a playoff team i. don't care what their defenses. As long as Mahomes is healthy, but that's another thing you just can't say oh yeah I mean he's he's tied up long-term. What about their defense? They can win games fifty, five to fifty four. I guess so. Yeah I saw that Dominic was just let me know that Robbie Ray has been traded to the Blue Jays and. You know a a lefty. If you think about pitchers walk years now they've got Taiwan Walker and Robbie Ray those are rentals also traded for the kid Daniel Volvo Bach. Means Bird Creek Frugal Balk. who was once a top cubs prospect. So a man, they're they're making a move. By the way Travis Bergen goes back to Arizona and that deal a pitching prospect. But You know I I gotTa say when you look at the the Blue Jays, you might not think that they're you know in with a shout but they're one of those teams who's just thinking you know what screw it. Its Code Nineteen or only playing sixty games they're taking a lot more teams. In the I mean, if you look at it right now, what are they eighteen and fourteen four games over? which is good enough to be the second wildcard right now. Now. Why not? You can take the top two teams from the American League. It's Tampa Bay New York Cleveland Chicago, Oakland Houston, and then the best wildcards would be Minnesota think about that Minnesota is in third place. About those white sox and then TORONTO. And there's really nobody on their heels. Seattle's fourteen and twenty two. So the way they look at it, they're like, Hey, if as long as we just. Laid halfway decent where in the playoffs let's make a move. On the other hand as I said, the giants need to sell. All right now giants can look around and they are the other wildcard you have four teams. In the American league last in the playoffs. or I should say nationally with that would be pretty interesting. All right. I'm Rick Tuttle.

Against that, and welcome back to the show lines up in one, eight, hundred, eight, seven, eight play. Sorry to hear about the passing of John. John Thompson today legendary Georgetown. Ashfall coach eight years old. Led Georgetown to that I championship back in nine hundred, ninety four. That was the Patrick Ewing. David Wingate team and then the next year they got back and Nova beat them by two. And It's funny. My brother. This is ESPN. I came out and all they had was college basketball literally all had. And my older brother. Spend hours watching college basketball, which I really had no use for. At the time unlike those other things to watch you got so into it, he begins huge Georgetown Fan because they had Patrick, Ewing Georgetown was on like every game was on national television. And so. He. After that Mass Amino Nova Squad beat them. He said, he just got in the car and drove he was so spooked. But I, it got me excited about doing because an eighty five he was going to go to the warriors we the worst record. There's a new thing lottery way. What is it? It's a lot. It's a lottery. No. The worst team gets the top pick not anymore. If they if they had an NFL lottery. The they would burn down the earth. There's no way they would accept enough lottery. But anyway Big. John. If you think about all, he did. For. George town and I think about. Some of the Great. Big Men after. Ewing like to can be tumble and Alonzo Mourning. It just kept coming. For people who didn't know. Thomson. WAS A. High School Star and he went to Providence College and he got drafted by the Celtics and he backed Bill Russell. Or a couple years got to rings there. But here's the thing that I didn't know when he got hired by George Town. Nineteen seventy two I don't remember that was seven. At the time he was one of a handful. Of Black Coaches in college sports. But the thing that's almost shocking to consider. was at Georgetown stunk the year before they were three and twenty three and they had not gone to the tournament in thirty years. So. Milestone wise I black coach to win an NCAA. Championship. Thing to about about John Thompson of course, you know he was six foot nearly three hundred pounds with that. Scowl on his face. LYSA guy who's still was physically intimidating. But. He always seemed like a father figure to me. He didn't unless your father beat on you i. hope he didn't but is the kind of thing where. He was so much taller than most of his players he seemed like your dad. You know he seemed like he was smart and nice and I don't know if it was the glasses it just made them seem a little more harmless. and. There was an interview he did one time where. He said I. was supposed to be grateful because I was one of the first African Americans coaching I was supposed to sit there and say, thank you Mr White man for giving me a job odd. Made me human equal. Now I'm supposed to be grateful because you're treating me equal and treating me as a human being no. Remember he walked off the floor in the eighties when they had that proposed prop forty eight rule. And the prompt forty-eight rule which didn't get passed. It was a way of saying that if you didn't get rage, you couldn't play as a freshman. When I think of Thomson, I think one guy more than any other and that's Alan Iverson. And Alan Iverson. I forget what it was, but there was a fight at a bowling alley when he was a freshman. And he was up on the day as and the press was talking to him and. Someone asked Iverson about the fight. John Thompson interrupted and he goes he is a child is a child. If you have questions like that, you direct them to me, he will not suffer these questions because he is a child. Wow Eiriksson stood there. Very. Respectfully kept was shed. But it's sad when I look at the the tweets now. From some of the players. Alan Iverson put out for saving my life coach. I'm going to miss you but I'm sure that you are looking down on us with a big smile. I would give anything just for one more call from you only to hear you say f. then we could talk about everything except basketball may you always rest in paradise where there is no pain or suffering? Will. Always see your face in my mind hoping that I made you proud your prodigal son Hash Tag Heuer for life. Sad. The Cambay Matombo. said quote very sad news to wake up to on this cloudy morning. A legendary Georgetown coach John Thompson has passed away. He was my mentor great teacher hero and a father figure to so many of us. Got The chance to play for him under coach Thompson learned about a lot about the basketball most importantly I learned how to be a man and society. We will really miss him R I P coach. Michael Jordan. Of course, he did not play for him, but of course knew him. Said coach Thompson was a truly great man and a legend in college basketball at such a profound impact on his players was a father figure to so many of them I admired him and loved him dearly. Can dolences is family and the Georgetown community. John Calipari. Said coach Thompson was the best of the best I thought prayers with family. I'll never forget when coach Thompson protested an NCAA rule that he felt discriminated against black players by refusing to coach a game until it was changed, he was ahead of his time by speaking truth to power when it was hard to do. Bradley beal. This year just keep getting worse. r.i.p coach, John Thompson I was honored to have the opportunity to pick your brain and learn from you while in DC. You had the look of intimidation and focus but had the mindset of a wise man. You're a legend and will be truly missed. Providence College. Fryer family mourns the loss of John Thompson Sixty four was legendary player and even greater person thoughts and prayers with the Thompson family recipe that has a picture of him from. His days in Providence. Doc, rivers chimed in he said. Coach John Thompson Junior. He was a true builder of young boys to men. Set the tone for all of us. We remember him as a coach but anyone who came into contact realize he was much more. A mountain of a man, my prayers to the Thompson family. Thank you for sharing him with us. All Patrick Ewing. Alonzo Mourning. Allen Iverson Takami Matombo Sleepy Floyd Reggie Williams. Thought Dot. Austin Celtics our condolences to the Thompson during this different difficult time rest in peace. John. It's got a picture of him in the Celtics journaling. Wearing number five. And then comma. Harris who just put out a condolence to her former? Fellow I should say. Howard University alum. Chadwick Bozeman. She wrote today. Sean coach John. Thompson was a legend and a leader both on and off the court paving the way for so many came after him my condolences or this family loved ones on the entire Hoyas community. You think about that first year seventy, two, seventy, three. He went twelve and fourteen. And placement again so told them fourteen. Next year he went thirteen and thirteen. As like watching Bill Walsh when he got to the Niners Bill Walsh terrible records this first two year but you're building something. Nineteen seventy four seventy five finally got them after thirty years. So the turning loss in the first round the next year they lost in the second round. The, next two years they didn't even make March madness but. They got to the nit where they got knocked out. And he went on a run of tournament appearances from Nineteen Seventy eight first round next year elite eight next year first, round your after that. Runner up after that second round and then eighty, three, eighty, four, they were the champions and then lost the championship the next year. Thirty four and three was the record. when I was a freshman in college my sophomore year they went thirty five and three on the two year span how about sixty nine and six and it helps to have Patrick. Ewing. Obviously. But is in one, thousand, nine, hundred, ninety, nine, they started off seven six and he retired. Four wins away from six hundred. And I think most importantly of all. All with the Georgetown Hoyas. And if you think about how elite that school is academically. You about you know what's funny. The comedians that have come out of there like. Nick Kroll was a senior when John Mullany was a freshman in the Improv Bruce, they also had Mike Moore. They were all at Georgetown at time as well, which is interesting. The comedy to come up at A. I have a buddy who went there I mean it's it's almost like a Harvard and what they were able to do at that basketball programmer should say John Thompson. r.i.p to.

That's what I had had said I'm talking about keeping on the trade deadline here. Will Your Club make a move? Will they do it? I don't know. Well, we have less than ninety minutes you better get on it. If, YOU WANNA get in it. Apparently the royals are telling people with Mary filled just. Dom Aunt or not available. The reds are saying Trevor Bowers, not available. The mariners are trying to unload. Carlson seager. He has a fifteen million dollar mutual option which becomes a player option next year if he's traded, so they probably have to eat some cash if they wanted their. The marlins. Or, apparently, and on starling Martin. Couple of Martin as for the diamondbacks. he's a good player. More about the MARLINS and a second. Derek. Rodriguez has been claimed by the Tigers, which is nice. The giants cut him. He's a nice kid. He's a report to their. 20-man extra roster when a taxi squad. But the MARLINS. Are, the are the Marlins in this. What's what's going on with them? Because we know the fire sale, we know the crazy owner that they had and the crazy stadium all that stuff keyword. Crazy. And then Derek jeeter comes in and says, we don't want yellow and stanton. Blah. Blah. Blah the. Tragedy with. Fernandez. But as stands right now. The. Miami Marlins. Are In, third place in the east. They can have a worse record than one of the wild cards and still in you just have to be in the top two. So they have the exact same record as Philadelphia. And then the mets are game and a half behind the marlins and then the. Nationals are three games back of Philly. MIAMI. So, Miami could make the playoffs with this crazy setup. And if you think about some of the other contenders struggling, maybe they would. Maybe, they would just for fun. At and then. See what would happen there. But I wanted to get to something here. College football wise. The the big ten with this whole maybe we'll play anything we talked about it on Friday I did anyway. Were there said, well, maybe we can start on Thanksgiving I thought you said you weren't playing like the PAC twelve and the MAC and mountain west so they weren't playing. The Ivy League well. Maybe we maybe we wouldn't. When I grew up the big ten was Bo- Sham Boeckler woody hayes, and three yards and a cloud of dust. It was Joe Paternal at Penn. state. These are the teams that all had these cornfed linebacker who are going to punch you in the neck every time you carry the ball. It was tough football. And these schools need their football but exactly seventeen days after announcing that they were going to play in the spring. A are now considering Thanksgiving start. Hick Elaine stay in your lane. And the rift in this. Conference is, obvious. And the League. Presidents who voted overwhelmingly not to play. They're hearing from the trustees. And the parents and the fans and the players. But the bad part about this rift, it is very public. So. We've been told. That will be no decisions for ten days. What what does that mean that means they have to talk? Right and being quiet. After all this going on. Maybe that's a good thing but it's the when the noise comes out. It's the wrong kind of noise because the first question is what has changed from August eleventh? The Big Ten, Commissioner Kevin Warren K he's been criticized for his lack of transparency. No fall football. What's that all about? Then, he issued what he called quote an open letter to the big ten community on the nineteen. and. He said that the the decision to postpone the season will not be revisited. Listen. Revolution will not be televised and so will fall football will not be televised the big ten. And The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. Was the first to report by the way. That's the League was talking about. Maybe. Getting this together again and starting on around Thanksgiving. Week. So when he drew that line in the sand. That line in the sand has been kicked like a sandcastle. There is no line or if it is, you can barely see it. I mean absolutely nothing might come this. Or we might hear within ten days. That, they will start up. Or they'll start up hinging on a medical miracle surrounding cove in nineteen. Right. Big Ten sources as get leaked to the press. They say look we're committed to developing a spring twenty-one schedule. This is this is all we're doing right now. We're trying to get something. will go on the spring, but they want to get it to end before the draft. But if anything as of now, it just shows a lack. Of Unity. And we know what Nebraska thinks. There were contemplating leaving the conference which would have been the worst long term decision they've ever made and they weren't stupid enough and they weren't going to be allowed anyway. Ohio state has been very vocal about playing Jim harbaugh Michigan has been very vocal about it. We've done everything and these kids are safer with us then they are in the dorms. Anyway Iowa has also made it very well known that they wanNA play Iowa would like to get some positive press. Instead of all the bad things we've heard about Hawkeye football under Kirk farance and the already fired strength and conditioning coach. You heard about their starting running back who had no money to eat had to have his mother by him domino's and seconded from her phone to his room, and also to eat at a boosters house just so he could get some food. that. Doesn't sound like room and board. decided the story, but it's not very nice to hear. So. These coaches will not let it go. And they see recruits looking elsewhere because they wanNA play now. You know it's like, Oh, I wanNA play for the Buckeyes. Well. They're only gonNA play against themselves. I don't know maybe the PAC twelve. And it'll maybe he'll go to rose bowl two point. Oh, but the NFL scouts like you know what never mind I'll go to Alabama. I'll go to Auburn how I go to Vanderbilt. So that's the thing justin fields has played his last snap. The way he looks at it. And you think about Michael Parsons the Penn State linebacker. He's opted out of the season. He's opted out just to prepare on the draft and to avoid covenant exposure to. and. So he won't have to worry about it at all but. The the College Football playoff is still there and that is what is killing these big ten coaches and boosters and regions what have you that WanNa keep plan. Ever forget when I was playing. There was one of our linebackers just sucked. There are two guys who sucked and I wondered why they were playing. One of them was this wide receiver who looked like Ronald McDonald who big tufts of orange hair he was slow he was fat he was from Colorado and apparently he got a scholarship. I don't know if he was the MVP of Seven. Man League like why is he playing because he has a scholarship? Well, that's stupid. Slam back stock and then I found out his dad was one of the regents So that's why he's playing Gotcha. But all those people who are important to the school and live they live live for college football. They have nine different V, neck cashmere sweaters. I gotta read one I got a white one I got a grey one. I got a black one I got a red and white one I got a black and gray one got a red and black when. If plan their outfit for every game home and away. And then they look over there. And Georgia Tech and Clemson their plan and we're not. Why in the hell is Ole Miss Plan and we're not and they're gonNA lift up that crystal football. Well, it's not that anymore they're gonNA lift up. Weird gold trophy. And we're losing out on one hundred, million dollars. By, the way they think now if they play in the spring, they'll be able to get half that money back. Okay. So you can give fifty million back. In the spring maybe. But. I think it's gotten even crazier. Now they've hired a lawyer. Who has submitted a freedom of Information Act? To look at. What, how the decision was made? A grand jury testimony here. I mean. But when there's litigation, there's real concerns right As Frivolous as a lawsuit by Nebraska, players looks initially. We talked about that with six guys, there could be some damage done. especially. If the big ten is compelled to release some conversations they had. and. So then after that, what happens just like everything else it gets politicized. It gets politicized, and so the big ten changes, its mind it's going to be seen as caving to pressure obviously. But either way it's just uncomfortable now. Because the big ten might be playing regular season games. Same Week Alabama plays Clemson in the championship game. Would we have this week? Oh my gosh it's Michigan state versus Iowa State. By the way at the same time, the National Championship. And it's going to be weird. There's no doubt. There are some people said, the ACC's decision to play is just to give Trevor Lawrence one more season. That's not the only reason. It's to get ninety to one hundred, million dollars. It's not just for Trevor Lawrence. Now, that guy up in North Dakota, who's GonNa play? One Game North Dakota to hear about that I mentioned it last week place Central Arkansas who by the way played against Austin Peay this weekend. I Central Arkansas you WANNA play football. They will walk into a burning building and play football or they'll send their kids into one. It seems like. It will send them to Molokai. They'll play there. They don't care. And if you're at Central Arkansas your leg good, we're playing whatever your view is but they're gonNA play one game for their quarterback that means two hundred kids they're gonNA play in a game. Or we'll show up for a game just to showcase. One Guy who I guess we'll throw the ball sixty times that game. But. Yeah. The big ten, the credibility. What credibility. I'm rick.

All three of their starting outfielders hit two home runs each. Jason Heyward in happened Kyle Schwab. In fact, Schwab second one was a grand Salami. Here's the interesting thing about Jason Heyward. He's good again. He's hitting who would have thought that. He's hitting two eighty six right now. The plate discipline. Is whereas renew article and that's where he's improved his chase percentage in other words swing in a garbage outside of the strike zone. He's improved twelve percent on that. So the cubs if you think about. How Hobby Boulez isn't hitting. Ryan has slumped Rizzo has slumped Willie contraire has slumped.

You're listening to wrestling observer life with Bryan Alvarez and Mike Semper Vivey on the sports byline broadcasting network. The show Brian Alvarez here wrestling observer live of Mike Zimmer v also of wrestling observer dot com got lots to talk about today. What are your thoughts on this payback and everything else we talk about today? Text messages four to five, seven, eight, zero, seven, five, six, six. It is four to five, seven, eight, zero, seven, five, six, probably take phone calls in the final segment but not yet. So some your tax or your emails, Bryant Wrestling Observer DOT COM. So last night at the show. We had Lashley beating Apollo crews to win the US title clean in the middle of the ring he submitted him Apollo gave up. At Apollo attacked him afterwards because they don't know how to pay. Face. We had big defeating shameless. It was a night of patterns here and the pattern was baby face gets beaten up for ninety percent of the match hits, couple moves and wins. This was the first of many. To me this didn't do anything for poor biggie but he got his hand raised. So if you're only looking at who gets the W. Then what a big win for Biggie here. We had the exact same thing with Ritalin Corbin. Corbin beat him up the entire match riddle got a quick comeback and he got his hand raised is didn't do anything for Matt Riddle. But if you just WanNa see the w what a great win for man riddle. Shayna Nyah. Defeated Bailey and Sasha to win the take team titles the finish was great Shayna choked out. I think if I get this correctly, she choked out Sasha with Bailey's arm in a double submission. So. Bailey and Sasha are both smackdown talents. That means according to the rules they can't be unwrought anymore. In China are the taking champions, they can go to smackdown and annexed exte- pretty much anywhere they want. I have no idea how Sasha challenge for the raw title as a smackdown talent now I. I can't figure this out now but I mean that did happen so. There you go. The match was not very good. It was four heels nobody cared but it was cool fish. We had keithly ran your and if you haven't figured out already Rainier and beat him up the entire match keithly got about four spots and then he hid the spirit. Balmy. Pinned him in six minutes. I believe two minutes of the six minutes was radio and holding keithly a headlock on the Mat. This did nothing Keith Lee but he did get the big W. he got his hand raised everybody. So that was at least nice and this was way better than Monday and it was way better than the guy losing but this was not the kind of magic get a guy over. Rian Dominic seven Murphy was great. A great tag team match, Dominic, Pin, Murphy. I loved everything about this from start to finish. I. Hope that that Murphy and and Seth I mean they're breaking up it looks like but. Should at least go onto tag team title shot they should win I, mean in a perfect world they would win at Wrestlemainia but do by wrestlemainia dominant. Group, I would presume so better sooner than later for that. And, the main event. The storyline in the show. Don't get mad at me. The storyline is that this company is completely incompetent. The story line is they announced a three way last Monday on raw that none of the participants had agreed or signed for. The show Friday. Was All about. Can we get this match put together that we already announced on Monday? and. They had bron sign and they had bray sign. But Roman reigns didn't sign. They continued to advertise a match that was not official. At, the pay per view on Sunday Roman still had not signed the contract. and. Then they just start the match with the other two guys. And Bray Wrestle for five minutes, and then they break the ring Roman reigns comes out on the ramp. He signs the contract in the middle of the match he runs down he beats up both guys he spears Braun strowman any wins the title because if you haven't figured out already, the heat is that he doesn't deserve it. He's now brock listener. He's a guy that doesn't deserve it. He probably will defend the title very rarely. It's the only thing they know how to do to get heat I, mean they did it effectively. But that was the main event of the show way more happen here than Summer Slam, and for the record we've seen no retribution for three straight shows. Now, they've dropped off the face of the earth. So, we'll see if there is any follow tonight on raw. Mike what did you think of this show? I was happy to see retribution sad that you reminded me of that and yeah, it's probably going to be part of their TV presentation but they were not needed last night and I'm happy that they were not there. I disagree with you a little bit on Randy Orton and keithly. I understand what you mean and there were probably better ways and probably better people than than maybe could put over. In a more dominant way but I think having rainy Ordonez name on his resume I know you know on a piece of paper doesn't mean all that much but I know Kinloch aside. But that's a randy Orton special. I think some people will be disappointed if they didn't get a Chin logging Arraigned York match, he's crazy for keithly and get knocked out of the ring and his reaction if the end and going out clean sheet in six minutes. I. Think Actually. This is where the the. Realm of wwe can actually help them because. Lower should be at least right now while everything is good with Keith Lee is he defeated the legendary Randy Orton in five minutes, and as long as they tell that story and show little clips like that, then it could be part of. Canon or is his backstory. So I'm not upset with that one at all. This was a thumbs up pay per view from the aspect of Dominic and ray mysterious against Seth rollins and Murphy. To me was perfect. This is the first time it has felt like seth rollins has not been a cartoon character. This has not been put on his Internet persona not. Me Thinking of that over what his in ring is supposed to be he was great last night and the interaction with Murphy was great and Ray is of course great and that leaves Dominic mysterious who was awesome and I thought that match was just so great. It was so refreshing and to have Lee in order to have the mysterious. Rounds and Murphy I mean if anybody. Feels as though they WANNA go back and they didn't see the show and they gotta check it out. You don't really but those two matches I would absolutely say check check those out and then check yourself out before the main event comes on. Well, everyone including Mike Tonight on raw. The storyline is that we're going to find out a challenger. For the championship for drew McIntyre. On the September twenty seventh show. I'm asking everybody in the chat if you think the keithly is going to be the challenger Razor in anybody. Look at the chat here movies saying you're not looking like it. We don't have as much of a delays. Kevin Jones got to deal because I think everyone knows who the challenge is going to be on September twenty seventh is going to be Randy. Now I'm not necessarily saying that I expect reindeer and beat keithly tonight. But rain you're. Clean loss in six minutes. I mean. There's a reason that that was done and that is because Rainey's probably getting the title on September twenty seventh is what they do. We've seen it a million times that the show tonight is going to be all about rain Yordan, the next four weeks is going to be all about Randy Orton someone would probably beat up Keith Lena tournament or something like that. Maybe digest will show up and attack Keith and they can have matched the next pay per view because Thi- Jack has been called up but I mean. In a real I mean in any other promotion keithly, beating Randy Orton is the beginning of Keith lease road to becoming the champion or something. But this is wwe raw. That's not gonNA happen I'll I'll sit here. I'll put my neck out on the line that ain't gonNA happen it's crazy to me men the urge to put the bill I get it if you WanNa do mania and do or an edge for the title I get it but like to start putting this into play now, I don't know I'm not really for this one I think they could wait and and really benefit everybody a lot better including drew's rain. See, we got the feedback been here. I didn't read any feedback yesterday about any of this. So let's see what people have to say about the the newsworthy payback show. person. Here says Randy mostly sold the loss like the kid got me as opposed to being truly beaten. Well if he now here's the thing to and the take this for what it's worth. If he loses tonight like that again, it doesn't kill reindeer and dead it only keithly better gives rain your opponent beside judge as he gets. Back, in a moment was live.

You're listening to wrestling observer life with Bryan, Alvarez and Mike Separate. On the sports. byline broadcasting network. Bryan Alvarez here wrestling observer alive and makes him for Vdi also wrestling observer. Dot Com. Person says you kept retribution off a show called payback. Yes. What is what is payback have to do with anything? I called them redemption and people got mad. Though it's all basically the same thing redemption retribution payback. Yes. They kicked him off the show I don't know if the group is dead. But they have dropped off the face of the earth. Cares it's fine. No matter what you call it still Kaka so you know the faster it's Outta here the better although I don't believe it's going to be and I guess we are deserved some sort of payoff but in this world of professional wrestling where plenty of things are dropped and especially wwe with no word whatsoever if this ends up being one of those things that would be great. Process with Murphy and said having a fallout can we get black into? I. Totally. Forgot about LAS. There's another guy that turned heel. He's gotta put Kevin Owens I I. We got we got like a five to one ratio heels to baby faces in this promotion right now across all the brands, it's ridiculous. They're trying to make Kevin Owen such a baby face that he takes up to baby faces. Now it's like it's like good, Dad Kevin Owens he's like good friend Kevin Owens Good Dad Kevin Owens certainly, really good commentator Kevin O., and so no matter what happens I hope that continues to hold out. Spurs says I guess Sasha Challenges for the raw titled because she is allowed to be unwrapped because she had the tag team titles even though she's a smack town this is the explanation for why Sasha a smack downtown challenge for the raw singles title because she could go brand to brand and they set up a feud for singles title as she went brand to brand as team champion. Whatever Remember the rule you can go anyone can go from one brand to the other four times in a calendar year member that one was that the wild corvette last week that was something different Oh man that lasts. Rule Crying out. Loud. The draft is coming up. So new teams are coming. That's why all of these teams breaking up Dude historically teams got drafted together except on very rare occasions, they would draft one person from the team but in general, the teams counted as one pick, but it doesn't matter because there's no cannon. The rules are whatever the rules are on a given day for the draft. There are no rules. There's nothing that they abide by when they book these shows, they do whatever they want to do. The rules are whatever they WANNA do on any given day. Just, the way things go I used to love that part of the survivor series, but I was a geek that actually like tag teams to but like the the first couple of survivor series like eighty, nine and ninety. One of my favorite matches was just it was the tag survivors match where we had the ten tag teams you know standing around and it was completely a ridiculous visual with eight teams outside of the ring, all those guys outside and two guys in the ring. I always thought that was the best and it's too bad that they have created tag teams in the way that they do especially. Now, whereas you mentioned we've talked about and we will continue to talk about I'm sure for the entire week that we have all of these tag teams that are always on the verge of breaking up or always on the verge of some sort of conflict. If you include and Dorada Day and Angel in Selena Vega next but everybody is always teetering on the edge and this company. It's person says was a styles field with Paul Heyman now being on smackdown well, I don't think it matters because the draft is coming and my guess would be that he gets drafted to the other show or Roman Paul go the other show and they ended up being a he could draft drew to smackdown and put Roman reigns and Paul Heyman on raw he could put Augean raw and leave Roman Paul on smackdown. Or, maybe don't know. Aj styles against drew McIntyre, AJ styles against keithly AJ styles against. The handful of guys him coming over to raw is going to be a a major plus I hope you know if this is the way everything shakes out. Spurs near says Nyein. Shane will both go after. Oscar for the singles title and bicker about who is more dominant because, w? We love team champions bitter. Well, every team in the company is currently feuding with the exception of of live Morgan and Ruby Riot. I. Think they're the only they're the only team that are friends, but they actually were enemies. Who got back together and now they actually like each other although we missed about four weeks a television because. There was one show where they didn't like each other and then the next show there's just backstage happy as can be because they had a match with the iconic or something. Do they like each other they they teased some anger with each other like you know weeks and weeks ago did they not? Well, let's watch raw tonight and find out what happens. Dear God retribution members probably got grounded as possible. They're not allowed to leave the house for for a week. Dad took the keys. They couldn't make it to. The thunderdome at employer you know. Up maybe they just maybe they just enhanced security and they can't get any more. That's it. That's I appears his seal, the perimeter I assume that's story that I. That's WHO's the one who's actually in charge of all of this stuff. Now, if his performance on Fridays got anything to do with it, hopefully, we do see more Adam peers. Persist I never realized how big WWE's he'll problem is after payback is the fiend and now the top baby face on smackdown his name is the fiend. I listen. I don't think the fiend is a baby face. Now granted when you have a feud with three heels. Get screwed, and they probably come off as the baby face but I don't think the fiend is supposed to be a baby face bronze Roman is not a baby face. Roman reigns is not a baby face I mean, I. Guess Jeff. Hardy's a baby face but he's hardly a main event guy right now shame misses a he'll I mean big a baby face, but he's not in the main event titled Picture. So I have absolutely no idea who the baby faces aren't smell. I have no idea. The TUB baby faces all the next. Although I expect Adam Cole turn probably tomorrow and exceeds tomorrow by the way everybody. But if you forget it'll be on Wednesday on Scifi but other than that like raw we got drew. Who else is the top baby face on raw? keithly. Keithly I guess is so we got to on RAW. That's good. Yes there is a there is a problem with the heels and the baby faces on these brands almost like they've had this problem for years and don't know how to fix it. You know. I near says. New Day and MS Morrison aren't feuding are they will new days broken up right now? They don't even count everybody's out. One guy both two guys are injured and one guy's going Solo. So they don't even count as a team right now ms Morrison I believe maybe the team aside from Ruby ride and live mortgage not feuding. But Le's Party is feuding and Knock Morris. Zara refuting as. Champions are feuding seven Murphy feuding. Who Else Lexin Nikki? Yeah Yeah. So I'm sure we could go on and on. So we got the street prophets the Viking raiders and heavy machinery that all like each other, and that's about the limit on tag teams right Ao doesn't count because they're her they don't count. So yeah, three eight, each because they keep getting hurt something's going to have to give them at some point. Says Debbie doesn't need baby faces they are terrible and making them. You know that well. So nate, you could make that argument but I mean running show with nothing but heels wrestling each other. I mean dude this. This thunderdome crowd Dave's trying to claim that the reason that nobody was cheering was because they weren't being told to cheer but like you're welcome. Asked Jesse like you're welcome to cheer if you want to. If you don't, they're going to yell at you to clapper whatever. But you can do whatever you want. They've made no sound when Nihay, sitting, there is a baby face in peril in a match with four heels. Good. But you know when they did make a sound is watch the the mysterious lost mysterious match and guess what there's a hot tag and I don't know. Maybe it was the luck of having everything saint up. But they made the hot tag in e incomes ray and the crowd sounds like it actually talked I was actually wondering why you had to pure baby faces too. Pure heels, and that was the best match on the show got the best reactions on the show and these idiots seem to think that everybody can be a twitter or you can have all heels like this four way listen I'm sure the four-way Tomorrow's GonNa be awesome like technically in the ring, but you got a four way with four heels. That's GonNa go in our. Trying. To argue that Finn Baylor is a baby face but dude, you listen to his promos in what Universe is Finn Ballard, cutting face promos yes Adam Cole was baby face against Pat McAfee but his whole crew that comes out with them they're all heels. So I expect him to turn baby face but an hour of basically four heels wrestling each other. Hopefully, they do something in the match to turn somebody baby face or something. You. Can do shades of gray. If you treat it more like sport, then you can always have excuses about the money or something like that. If you if you they were more traditional and how did things it would be a lot easier to pull off having shades of gray and around, but you cannot have a whole. Bastion of that, it's supposed to be good versus evil. There are good guys and bad guys are antagonists and protagonists. This is in. This is the part where you got this isn't that difficult? It shouldn't. You should not have to shoot yourself in the foot and you should not have to basically little a baby face with bullets. Then hope they survive Allah Daniel. Bryan Roman reigns with somebody before you can slap them up there and go see look what we may. They just had overcome their mistakes the same kind of the same story telling with Biggie. Right now where they're trying to control the narrative on why this guy has not been a singles threat it the entire time of his career I mean they're putting this on him as if he was a goofball and Blah Blah Blah, but we all know it's not true and they're hiding that and that's fine if they want to do that but it's funny they take that portion of reality and don't want anything to do with it. Yet bring a reality into the Matt Riddle story storyline that is completely baffling to me a huge a huge error. Spurs in ear, says.

Your keeping track of the trade deadline rumors as I am right now. You know I just got up producer domino. We're talking about the padres a little bit earlier on and I see both lived there pitching but that's not a thing for right now, Brian will get very very upset if we talked about that he always. Sports but Brian Might. WanNa talk about payback last night and listen if I'm in a triple threat match or a fatal four way match I'm never signing a contract ever again it's essentially among in the bank contract. If you can just go out there and you can just signed the contract during the mess that's as good as a briefcase and speaking of briefcases where do you see ODA spitting into this Braun strowman Bray Wyatt Roman reigns situation because I. don't see him ever cashing in at this point because he's just seemingly amid. Government rose all right first off I off Anthony. Does has until. Listen to this year be no odor slander on this show until July like what's the hurry to cash in this month? He doesn't need to cash in next month he doesn't even cash in by Wrestlemainia. He's got. I think he's got until July of next twenty twenty one. He has we'll have a vaccine by the time. This guy has to cashier. Okay. He's got a long time that's number one. Number two. This contracting. This was dumb. It's dumb storyline. But. As dumb as it was. The. Guy. Holding. Out Was Roman reigns. I mean in storyline you think they're going to announce a match with anybody else and they haven't signed the contract yet. You think I'm going to say Hey Sammy's eight. WE'RE GONNA announce a main event match for you on pay per view for a title and then just signed the contract whenever you want. Of course, not I mean is is incompetent as the company is in storyline I, mean we should at least in storyline pretend that they learned their lesson. And they're going to make sure that they sign everyone to contracts before the announced he's matches on pay per view the company's incompetent because they had a pay per view on Sunday and then a pay per view another Sunday and they were like man, we don't even have a main event for a show six days from now we'd better do a breaking news update in the middle of raw throw match together, and then we'll figure out if we can make it. I mean, why would these guys not sign a contract for a triple threat no-holds-barred championship match? There's a lot of stuff I can't defend. I'll defend this one even though it was stupid. Right. Sure. All right let's go to. Whoever this person is there in. There in Montana. You're on the air what's going on talk I didn't even know they headphones in Montana Jackson Montana is this Jack Jack you hear. Jack but now it's jacking Utah me to. UTAH. question is, when did you move check? A couple of weeks ago. Really why did YOU MOVE FROM MONTANA UTAH? Flatland. My Mom dad new job. Nothing's going to college in. UTAH. All right. I hear there's good colleges there. Go ahead, what's going on? My question is about a Roman Reigns Hilton. Live now of all times. Finally Turned Roman reigns. Well My. Friend. Well my friend. You set yourself up Brent take. Listen, right. So we we whole Cogan Hulkamania. and. Then bunch of is there were all these scandals and and they they just had to go with with some different people and they it was bred hard for while and and Yokozuna headed Hulk Hogan came back but then left again and then they were struggling they were they were flailing. Okay. So. Then we had the attitude era and we got both a Steve Austin and the rock at the same time. Okay. Never again in this lifetime, are you going to get a and Steve Austin at the same time? You can pray that maybe someday you'll get Steve Austin again a you can. You can pray all you want but ain't. GonNa Happen. You're never gonNA. Get another rock not in our lifetime. They're both the same time. Then the rock goes and makes movies Steve Austin injured his neck they're both gone and this company's gotTa make somebody. And finally, they hit on Johnson and Johnson wasn't Hulk Hogan and he wasn't the Rock and he wasn't Steve Austin. But you know what? He was John Cena and they would kill for Johnson. Today So, John Cena gets a little long in the tooth, and so they need to do I. They're they're they're hell bent on making this. Guy Roman reigns top baby face. And they try and they try and the audience churns on the guy and they try over and over the coronate him over and over again and they're determined. They're determined to make him the new John, Cena because they don't have another top baby face. He's the closest. To John Cena. So, eventually, he gets he gets leukaemia for second time and he's gone. And we had the the WRESTLEMAINIA thing disappeared again. The only thing that I can figure is. He. Left. They realized Oh my God look at the money we're making off these television deals. We could do anything we want we don't need John? CENA. We don't need a whole Cogan we'd like one. We'd love one. But you know what? Everything's GonNa be fine without one. And so I guess they just decided. Well, you know this Roman reigns whatever is bringing back with let him be a he'll. Will build up this drew McIntyre Vince clearly loves drew McIntyre I mean you can watch the way they booked drew McIntyre drew McIntyre. Like with the exception of rain. Your thing that put him out for a month. I. Mean the Guy Rarely sold anything for more than a few moments. He always left with his head held high. He was never humiliated they. I'm sitting here watching these Saturday night's main events and it's like he's trying to book like Cogan. He's always getting the last laugh he's he never looks like a fool i. Mean, they must just figure drew McIntyre is fine in this role for now he'll. He'll be our new guy and Roman reigns can can just turn heel will give these idiots what they wanted for all these years at away they go. That's the only thing that I can figure here. They just they don't need a scene anymore they're rolling in money that head hand over fist, they're making money and. That he'll, but he selling tons of merchandise. So I'm sure Vincent Mine. It's like what do you need a baby face for this guy selling merge drew's doing fine. That's the best I can come up with an answer. Well. Yeah and you know Becky Lynn I know she's Pregnant right now, I'm not sure how much. I saw the commercial of AJ styles they did that before the pay per view of May, paid any attention to that before maybe they've done that a bunch of times but you know it may just be hero by committee when it comes to the media when it comes to social gatherings when it comes to charity, that may be what it is. Right now because that's one of the reasons of course, you want that superhero baby face the do the make a wish to have that sort of presence I. Mean you should you you should want a progressing hero I. Mean we've always had one always accepting this company where it's so look down upon. So you know maybe that's how they're doing it because that's the one thing that you know Roman reigns. was really good for, but we'll see how they go ahead and play this whole thing is Roman reigns really dastardly he'll or is he just a bad acid takes advantage of situations i? Mean we are not even really sure how he's going to be. Presented here we haven't heard him talk yet. We haven't really heard Paul Heyman expound what this whole deal is going to be like. So we'll have to see how it plays out with Roman reigns here because I don't know how awful of a human being he's going to be able to be because I, think the irony is I think the reaction to this is now watching Roman reigns be probably as popular as he's ever been amongst wwe fans. Of the presentation listen there's someone on our Chad here. I don't know if they're being serious or not. But they're like many shirts drew selling listen. Let me tell you something. It doesn't matter. If, I could swear on national radio I would be even more adamant about that. It doesn't matter. Yes. In the nineties with Steve Austin was selling ten million dollars worth of merch every year. Yeah. That meant a lot back then. But if you want to go through the last wwe earnings report and you want to rank everything by order of importance, drew could sell no shirts and it'll make a bit of difference the fiend could sell no shirts everybody in this entire company could sell no shirts and it can make a bit of difference on the next earnings for the last earnings report. I forget what the numbers were but they were up like eight million dollars in Merch. You WanNa know why? Not? Because of any baby faces murked selling. It's because of those championship belts. that. They plug like crazy with all of their sales those belts range they have like the really cheap miniature belts he can get for like under one hundred dollars but the full side full-sized replica belts like the one that I I got into Christmas show that belts like four hundred dollars. Eight ranges up to two thousand dollars for forgive they called the signature series or whatever. But there's a there's a full-size w. e. universal title and Debbie Championship Replica Belt. Cubic zirconiums whatever for all of this opposed diamonds, that's a two thousand dollar belt they have they have determined. The profit margin is on a T. shirt. You know what the profit margin is on a t-shirt shirt for this company that's grossing like preposterous amount of money nothing it's nothing. But the profit margin on a two thousand dollar belt I mean you sell one of those belts you may as well Celica one hundred t shirts. So it doesn't matter how much merced the is selling. It doesn't matter how much merch Roman reigns is selling. They're making bake on the belt, but even the money they're making on vk eight million dollars that is a drop in the bucket compared to what they're making off of these TV deals and all of their big money generators. It doesn't matter. They don't need Johnson they don't need a Roman reigns. They don't eat anything. What they need is to convince these television companies that we can. Work to bring you. Three hundred sixty five days a year. At least fifty, two weeks a year a solid number. Yes. It's down from what it used to be, but it's still a solid number. It's it's going to be in the top ten at eighteen to forty nine on Monday nights. It's GonNa be maybe number one going against reruns in eighteen to forty, nine on Friday nights. That's what they need to do. That's what they need to do to make their money not sell t-shirts not how guy that sells a bunch of whatever I mean they don't need it. They're they're rich they're filthy stinking rich rolling in money right now. They need heroes, they need stars. The t shirts will take care of themselves after that. I mean it sucks. I would like I would like if there were a Steve Austin or Iraq or even a Mr McMahon which you'll never get another one in by the way I mean I I would love if they did that I would love if they'd strong baby faces and heels I would love if they had something that attracted the casual fan that would be better but they don't need that right now and they're coasting along until twenty twenty two when they need to sign a new television deal and quite frankly if you think that there's going to be nobody in television than wants these shows think again.

Chairman partners pounding the gavel from silence now, and it's my guess new. Mexico was more entire sixteen votes for us to say favorite son right now right Sam here's. A convention will please be in order. Whereas in previous years, many delegates complained that they did not get to wave a sign in front of the cameras that by miss the opportunity of scoring the television audiences view. This year all delegates out signs to hold had been given Malone's on long strings. Everybody gets old update this morning. Do States got into a fight over Civil Rights Alabama broker in Oregon blue with a lighted cigar. Now balloon breaking is the kind of thing that can split our party.

This connection come to water I will take away all of your mouse guitar. Joined the setup for that was Stanford getting the political convention I don't carry makes me mad. He doesn't take anything serious. Does at satire satire what satire. In the next half hour we will attempt to answer that question as CBS radio presents the CBS really workshop dedicated to man's imagination the theater of the mind tonight colloquy three, an analysis of satire. What is satire? How does it differ from wit humor from criticism? Is it all of these? To help us answer this question. The CBS radio workshop is proud to present one of the most penetrating young satirists of our time. The capitol recording, Star stemmed prepare. Thank you very much and good evening. What is that? That's a good question. L. They're all kinds of satire. We opened the show tonight with a political satire. Upgrades to right thinking Americans everywhere. You can't come bursting in here. Oh. Yes. I can I under center or you mean the networks? Oh no no no. No sense over the capital C.. I represent society with the capitalist no lower case I represent public opinion. There are some things too serious to be into sacred big business labor, the farmer, the American way mom politics what's with kidding politics you can't afford to offend one party or the other but that little exercise enrolled a montage was not directed at any political party I with only poking fun at the absurdity of all conventions well, maybe. You offended the states, the idea having the delegates Caribou sell me something. Did you watch the conventions reasonably of course and very carefully I can tell you well at honestly didn't they look a little like big rowdy kids sort of a Ding Dong school delegates. That's a slanderous statements I might even say a dangerous stopped. Oh, come on all I suggest what this could be a convention of one, thousand, nine, hundred, sixty, four. If they keep on it, the right they're going, what do you hope to gain by such impertinence? G frankly. I don't know but I can't help myself a lot of things and a lot of people strike me as being funny that's all and by holding up a satirical mirror to them maybe in a small way, I can help them to laugh at themselves and then everybody might be a little wiser and even maybe a little happier. Yes. But you went too far when you put mousketeers hats on the delegates now that definitely shorts not it's all in fun. Where's your sense of humor besides political conventions are nothing more than glorified? Mickey Mouse. Cartoons anyway. Watch your tongue, watch your town. It's not my tongue. That's will rogers tongue. I don't believe it will rogers was a great American. He wouldn't have said anything like that will gee I'm sorry to argue with you. Sir. But in September nineteen, thirty, two, he did say listen this is what will said. Well, our national political conventions if you were a tainted one or heard it over the radio or nothing more than glorified, Mickey Mouse Cartoon and solely. Foreign. Purposes Unquote. I just can't believe that a hundred percent. American like will rogers could have gotten away with it shocking simply shocking it burge's on the seditious look. If you don't mind I'd like to get this show on the road. All right. Go right ahead I warn you I'll be making notes of everything you say fine guest. May I borrow your pen. Oh certainly here you are. Oh, I hate ballpoint. Aren't you afraid to offend the ballpoint people? Don't you get smart with me a young man? Hi Sorry and where was I? Yes. What is that? While, it's a lot more than pointless fun poking satires criticism first last and always, but criticism disguising itself in the bright robes barbed with the gesture main salt the king. So long as he doesn't laugh. So criticism arm and arm with humor rides confidently past the center. Well, you're not gliding past me young man I know I know. Satire is as old as a man's pomposity more than two thousand years ago juvenile pierced the stuff togas of ancient Rome with the same weapon. Alexander Pope used the clip, the powdered Perry. Wigs of seventeenth century. London are the to puncture the tinsel bubbles of Park Avenue pretensions. But long before these viewers with alarm, there was a playwright named Aristotle's Greek. He didn't think much of the work of another playwright named escalates. In fact, he seems to have come to the conclusion that asked one Greek who didn't have a word for it At least aristocracies wasn't bearing any gifts one in his great satire, the frogs he had this to say of escalates. I know him. I've seen him years ago. Wouldn't bow. No dog no vote. No bridal to his tongue. Torrent of wild bombast. intelligible. Not One lighten twenty four centuries later a contemporary saddest felt the same way about rock and roll. Good. All right hold it that you guys rhythm and Blues now. But you gotta be careful as somebody liable to understand what you're saying about you want that to happen. Well, you got talk unintelligible like me. Right star. Okay. You guys. Record yeah. Well, there's some old rags mop and take the top. Okay. Real. Soon. Again. Donating not. intelligible. But satires weapon is the same exaggeration. was another top tune awhile back the marching out of my radio. So often I began to think my said had been made in. Texas by Texas. Member and The only place you could escape. It was diving for Abalone in the Straits of Juan, de Fuca. So fearful of being snare drum death I rushed to the studio and recorded this.
