How to charge for a travel service post-quarantine?
"Chris my name is John and I have a question at the Cross section of travel and side hustles and I thought who better to ask than you. My friend I've been exploring places for me in a someone very close to me to visit. She's on the west coast of the US and and I'm on the East Coast and with all the quarantining, we're really excited to be able to get out and meet up and see each other here soon. I've really enjoyed the process of scouring flights and times and dates to cities within our budgets and I'd like to do this as a side hustles for others. In the same boat, I really have enjoyed it I love connecting people, and it's just checks a lot of ox for me. So my question is it's a two parter. How would you recommend I charge for such a service and also what are ways that I could find clients in people in the same boat? Thanks keep fighting the good fight Chris. We need now more than ever a lot of uncertainty and I always love your message and I always loved the great work you and your team doing. John Thank you so much create that and you are needed to graduations on being our first ever. Listener question or repeat listener caller not repeat listener question has mentioned. So, let's talk about this idea I think the challenge here is, what is the service exactly because just thinking about it very practically sites like kayak dot com, Google flights probably some others have pretty developed filters that will show people in real time like all the different for flight deals from different cities. So if you're like I'm in Los Angeles I want to go you somewhere in the Midwest and you know, I'm not sure what the best deals are. There are there are filters that show you that immediately. Same thing if you're coming in the east coast, I don't know if there's something that shows somebody exactly like where to meet in the middle or like you know where the most. Budget. Optimal location could be for two people coming from different parts of the country. But that's really specific I. Think a lot of this data is available and because it's real time, it's kind of hard to beat that. You know like anybody can go and see it and learn most of what they need to know. The only thing I can think of is the model that Charlotte McGee started with her business called whisk away episode three, forty, six ESL teacher turned travel planner since clients unsurprised vacations. In her business, she's doing quite a lot of research in terms of not just picking the city but also lots of activities and overall itinerary. In some cases planning the entire trip or someone. So there could be something there in terms of what to charge. I think maybe a flat fee is probably best not trying to do this hourly or something, but just here's my flat fee for this particular. Service. But as I said I think it will be difficult to say my services showing long-distance couples or friends where they can meet up. I think you'll have to go further than that. So maybe a good question to consider is what else to other people in this situation need. I don't know exactly what the answer is. John is in that situation. So he probably does or at least it wouldn't be that hard to figure it out.
Coronavirus: When Will the Vaccine be Ready?
"Cuba seems to have the coronavirus under control, but a lot of the world continues to struggle in the past six weeks. The number of cases worldwide has roughly doubled doubled in six weeks for many of us hope lies in finding a vaccine with me to talk about the latest vaccine research and efforts to ramp up. Production is the world's global health corresponded Alana Gordon along this week phase. Three trials started in the US for one. One of the leading vaccine contenders. What does that mean phase three trials so the biotech? Madeira I'm with the national. Institutes of Health has started this phase three trial, and what that means is thirst killing of testing of the vaccine. People recruiting some like thirty thousand people where some get placebo. Some don't because at this point. You don't really know I. Have The vaccine approach that's been developed in the lab in these smaller scale phases. Whether that actually works. You also have to figure out how the dose works and side effects and this company Moderna it's not the only candidate. No, definitely not. There's an Oxford trial with Astra Zeneca. That's already been in three. That's being tested in the UK south. Africa and Brazil Marco for overall. There's like two dozen vaccines and human trials. At this point, governments are placing their bet than some of these front runners to try to get that vaccine available. Because let's you figure out something works. You don't have the time or space in a pandemic to then be like okay. Let's start figuring out how to scale this up. What does that all mean for access as people are like predicting when vaccines going to be ready, so they can make it. The conversations are on access are happening right now, and they're complicated, and they're full of ethical issues. I talked to Monsef slowly about this. He's the chief advisor for Operation Warp speed. It's this new government program. It's really in the hot seat because it's focused on getting a vaccine for the United States by January hardest step, frankly for access is forever vaccines. And, that's what we're. Aiming to still billions of dollars are going into figuring out these different vaccines. The US has narrowed it down. He says to eight vaccine candidates, and then they've also been agreeing to manufacturing contracts, but in all of this slowly says that the companies have agreed to share data from their research on these trials with the world. For him right now is focused as if you can figure out the right combination of a vaccine approach that is a game changer for all vaccines, Frank H, the the most valuable come. Next to of course, the vaccine noses themselves is. What does it take to be protected? Because then everybody can go and do that. Alone, I understand that, but they're still. The manufacturing part of the vaccine has to get made, and then how does distribution to what countries get prioritized? I mean. If you look at the past, we shouldn't be surprised with what we're seeing. An which is that geopolitics is all over this I mean. There's a global race for a vaccine also for access to it. Countries are trying to do this for their populations, and what that means countries that have more resources wind up getting the contracts I I talked to Raji Than Kaya. He's with the company Takeda about this, but he wears hats because he has worked in the US government on Pandemic Preparedness Nausea, Global Vaccine Access he does worry about this trend with all these countries. Now that we're seeing lineup for contracts I hope is that there will? Will be very little time between when significant numbers of people say in the US, get vaccine, and when the rest of the world gets meaningful volumes of vaccine. Are there efforts being made right now to broaden vaccine access when that vaccines developed? Yeah, absolutely and Sovan Kayak is actually on the board of the Coalition for epidemic. Preparedness Innovations full is called often referred to Steffi and they're working with the world. Health, organization. The idea is to bring in as many countries as possible to lower resource and higher resource countries to come up with these contracts with manufacturers, and the idea is that twenty percent of populations would gain access to vaccine. Not all countries have signed onto this like the United States. It tends to be that the lower resource countries tend to bear the bigger burden of diseases of pandemic for longer. The world's Alana Gordon. Thanks very much. Thanks Markup.
What Do I Do With All This Free Time
"Hi. Everyone welcome to recovery our where we talk about life beyond the bottle and what happens after we stop drinking I'm your host Tricia and the only way I blackout now is when I lose chunks of time on tiktok. Thank you so much for joining me. On today's episode, we're going to talk about what the heck to do with your time when you stop drinking when I was drinking, my guess is that I spent about an average of five to six waking hours of every day drunk, and about five hours or probably spent hung over at a minimum. That's a lot of time wasted time, not feeling good and one of the surprises for me in quitting drinking was actually how little free time I had with my recovery program of meetings exercise therapy morning. Routine Accountability groups on social. Media Etcetera. But. You can't do that all the time you know. You can't do recovery stuff all the time every single day or you'll burn out. It's important to have hobbies to replace your old hobby of drinking, and that can be a real challenge. At first you know if you spent your entire adult life being wasted as your hobby. Someone wrote me and asked what they're supposed to do with their free time now that they're sober. You ready for the answer. Here it is. Literally, anything. Everything in anything as long as you're not drinking alcohol. KAYAKING sure why not bowling roller skating kickboxing cooking sewing painting? You could try any new hobby. You've ever dreamed of and decide if you like it. That's one of the cool parts about learning who you are in sobriety. You know it's learning what you'd like to do. I posted on social media and I asked you what kind of hobbies you were trying out in a lot of active and outdoor activities came up, which is awesome hiking yoga bike riding. Those are fantastic detri- because physical activities and things outside help. You feel better, so you recovery benefits from it to. A few weeks ago I went kayaking for the first time I was at a lake literally four minutes from my house and I'd never tried this, and I loved it and guess what I can go kayaking anytime I want to now. And I know that a lot of us are still in quarantine, so we need at home. Hobbies totally get it. I feel you. I also learned how to play an auto harp. During our shut down here in Texas instrument that I never thought I learned to play. And now I get to jam out every weekend with my man friend in our make believe band called Donna Martin graduates. Way I if you're not sure what an auto harp is, it's a stringed folk instrument that June Carter. Cash and Dolly Parton made famous super easy to play. Which is why I picked it. And you too could learn how to play an obscure instrument. You could take an online masterclass on calligraphy or painting or graffiti. You know finding an artistic outlet is huge, and this is also helpful for your Mental Health Burnett Brown says that unused creativity is not benign. Unused creativity metastases it turns into grief rage judgment sorrow. So it's helpful for your head, and for your recovery to find something to do, that's creative. This is also something you can brainstorm on how to do more stuff with your family or your partner or your kids. I found that it was kind of easy in the beginning to get stuck into this mental trap of thinking that all your free time is a curse. Now you know now that it's not spent inside a bottle. You know and I get it. I just want time to pass, so you can go to bed and get another alcohol-free day under your belt. And this is understandable, and that was me one hundred percent I feel you, but eventually your free time. is where you decide how you want to enjoy living your life, not just kill time. You are quitting drinking. Because you want a better life for yourself, and you can do that now. You have the time and the energy, and maybe even the extra money to figure out who you WANNA be. This is a blessing to you know we're meant to have fun and find things that are entertaining fulfilling, and that gives challenging new experiences. This is a good thing. Thing. And if you're struggling with getting motivated, I would really encourage you to use a calendar. You know like a paper one that you right on with a pen or a marker, especially, if you're still in quarantine and just start planning new activities commit to them, schedule them. Write them down. Prepay for them and then try them out. If you don't love 'em great now. You know you could try something else next time. But I'm hoping that you'll find ones that you do like and maybe there are things you would've never done while you were drinking. That's the goal. Live your life beyond the bottle. Eventually, you won't be just killing time. You'll be living your life and it's supposed to be a life worth living right, so find out what worth living means to you, you know. What is your Dream Life? Look like find the activities that build the foundation for that life.
Unicorns of the Sea Reveal Sound Activities
"In real life, Nar walls don't speak English. Like the one bidding farewell to will Ferrell's character in the movie. Elf instead they sound more like this. That's an audio clip recorded by scientists last summer under the icy waters of northwest, Greenland. We want to describe what animals are doing. We I better understand what sounds are telling us. If Guinea Podolsky. A geophysicist at Hokkaido University in Japan, but Alcee and his colleagues study the soundscape of glacial fjords. They're noisy places where icebergs crash into the ocean and air bubbles visit of melting ice. These yards are also home to Charles. The animals are sometimes called unicorns of the seat because of their single long spiral Tusk and they're shy, which makes them hard to study so Polski teamed up with local at hunters who snuck up on narrow walls in kayaks and captured audio. That's the sound of a Narwhal looking for food, using echo-location like a dolphin or a bat. and. That's an all closing in on its prey, which had vacuums up into its toothless mouth, so start sounding like to my ear like a chain source something wick. Since? It's so many little clique SOM- that Kennedy even. Them and this is recognized as a foraging related sound used those by other animals, for example, other dolphins or bats. They do the same trick, because when they approach the target, their prey which is phenomenal, so Arctic Greenland Halibut. The want to update their. Knowledge about the position of the target more frequently because the target is moving, and they need to suck it in and. That's why the interval is getting shorter and we even using some simple simple assumptions. A equation can know how far the animal is from the target. The whistles you heard earlier are thought to be social calls individuals communicating with other nar walls. The researchers reported these observations in the Journal of Geophysical Research. Oceans, bursts, deal sounds which we don't know what they mean. And there are several wicketless, but also says that listening to Nar walls is a first step toward understanding this mysterious wail, and how it will cope climate, change, shipping, and other human activities alter its Arctic home. They're all this things taking place right now. In the region which will affect somehow this animals, but we have no clue even about the state or the previous state of this animal. So if we want to learn what's going to happen, we better start now and I hope this is where sound monitoring can help us to learn more about this still mysterious creatures.
Looking for Rome; The End of Ice; Earth Day
"It took a decade for Americans to take Rachel Carson seriously. In her book silent Spring She described the dangerous carcinogenic pesticides to the Environment. End To our health. It's bird the. Us government to create the Environmental Protection Agency and banning DT use in North America and much of the world got underway. Today we're experiencing a new form of silent. Spring with the spread of the novel Corona Virus as well as the accelerating effects of climate change on the planet. Maybe these are all signs that Mother Nature is upset with us up mountain climbing journalists Djamil. Cautions us that we're running out of time to get serious about our impact on the natural world? He'll tell us why in just a bit. Let's start today's travel. With Rick. Steves with fresh look at one of the world's most celebrated cities Rome. Francesca Caruso specializes in uncovering the layers of Roman history for visitors. She's with us to point out. What's behind the sites? We see so. We can view Roma's our city to treasure as well. Francesca Buongiorno. Kayak Francesca every day. You take groups around Rome like an evangelist of art appreciation. I've been following you for twenty years this way and it just your fresh now as you were when I first met you as far as your teaching mission. What is your mission as a teacher of travelers in Rome mission to make Rome accessible because I understand that it can be overwhelming. And what do you do with two thousand years of history? What do you do if two thousand years of art? So it's really giving some ideas on how to navigate it how to make sense of. What does it mean? What does it mean to us today? Wonderful classroom well. It's not a bad office to have. Now what are the big challenges? I mean it's it's hot. It's crowded people don't know their history What are the challenges of this? I mean it's becoming more and more crowded yes. The summer's getting very hot. But I think we have to stand that these things don't explain themselves that it's not true that if you stare at a painting or you look at broken columnists going to tell you what it means so we need a little bit of help. We need a few ideas. How do I look at things with the ancient ruins? Look like when they were intact for example so was a few ideas. We can do that. So when you're doing your work. Are there moments when you feel like yes? I've I've really connected and this person has been opened up to the wonder of what I've loved for years. It's a moment the SA- crossing the threshold at some moment. When you see that look in their eyes that they're right there and sometimes I invite them to remember to think of themselves at home packing their suitcases before coming to Rome and ask him think of where you are now the real thing and the real place think about this and as he that they look around themselves they do these moments. I mean now. Travelers can enter the coliseum through. What do you call it? The gladiator entrance on the stern entrance. And you're on the arena on the floor and you can hear the crowds and you can see the wild animals and BSE. Imagine nation is absolutely ignited finding moments though as a teacher. I mean anybody could just walk through some Gaetan look at the Coliseum on the inside it must be nice for you to able to have an entry that makes sense for the story that you're trying to tell. The story is the part I. I don't think you know after twenty years of talking about these things. I think that it's not so much the stones in themselves as was the stones have to say I mean the idea that the stones carry cultures carry stories that but we can think about and we can understand the past but we can also understand ourselves and having a conversation with those stories for you in other words the art can actually be more than just enjoying something fascinating or beautiful it can have meaning can have important the cost the coliseum. I mean the colosseum is bricks. Stones was the colosseum as a place of violence as a place of politics. It's a place where there is ethical moral issue that comes up with his. It mean that these people went to watch death all day long so it becomes a an occasion to reflect on the use of violence and propaganda. That so interesting because a lot of people go. Oh those Romans I mean arena. That's the word is sand right to soak up the blood. Absolute that's why it's called an arena because Covered with sand. So all the bloodshed on the opening celebration of the Coliseum. How many animals were slaughtered? Has Nine thousand or something like that? I always recommend working with perception to also think okay violence. But what if they'd been ancient Roman sitting in the audience and I saw my first lion never having seen a photograph line on knowing what a line looks like a lion pounces out of the floor for the first time. Two thousand years ago without zoos and circuses documentaries would that meant so we can put ourselves in the shoes of people of the past. It creates a different understanding history and culture. We don't need to be quite so judgmental and we also have to remember. What are the top selling movies for us? You know. They're the shoot? 'em Up the Schwarzenegger movies on this kind of stuff. The the wrestling the car racing everybody waiting for a crash. I mean there's a lot of consistency between twenty first century and two thousand years ago might challenge as a tour guide. And I would imagine you're too is helping people see things in that context. I mean today we go to Roman. It's a modern city sitting on the ruins of a city that used to have a million people. There were a million people in Rome two thousand years ago. How do we envision that? How do we appreciate pass key? But the imagination needs to be informed so if I say that Roma's the first city in the West that reach the population of a million that an antiquity was the most populated city on the planet. And there will never be a million people in a European city again after Roman to London in the eighteen hundreds there you can start thinking that and then you start saying well. What did it mean to provide clean water food housing to over a million people two thousand years ago with did it look like and then you're there all of a sudden you're there and you're thinking like them and you don't bring your baggage of perceptions of moral codes and ethics but you're thinking like a Roman and then that's the transformative aspect of travel that you can be in the shoes of another person of another time might challenge and I just love? This is to not look at it from yeah. I've been there done that. I've seen it on TV. I saw that movie. You know from the twenty. Oh we've got taller buildings or whatever put yourself in the context and then you go. Wow they had a sewer system for a million people. They brought in water for a million people. They cooked bread for a million people there. Rick it happens if you're on the other side of the world and you didn't know book it's one thing if you're in place and you can imagine you can think you can reflect. You can feel are things that can happen if you're that to not happen. Otherwise is doors open as he's Windows. That opens a comprehension. Remember we talked about once fell to The Catholic pilgrim to walk into Saint Peter's for the first time for one hundred years ago. It's that idea of putting ourselves in the eyes in the shoes of travelers on the past

Upstream w/ Dan Heath
"In the book you get into these details a little bit more mechanically Specifically talking about you know uniting people and What are the changes? Actually that you need make to assist them. How do you determine some of those things Finding Leverage One thing I'd like to talk about specifically is how do you know when this is succeeding in the point of no when we're talking about the The children that are that are drowning. It might make sense that if you had a rate of children drowning when every five minutes in that drops to one every twenty four hours then that might make a good measurement but it's not always that easy right. No it's not and I think the reality is. We live in a world where in the fictitious parable world. I mean my guess is that enormous corporate America. What people would be a measured on is? Is the speed of Rescue You know it and in fact. There's there's an example in the book. I think illustrates this. Well it's about expedia the online travel site and back in two thousand twelve. This guy named Ryan O'Neal is studying some data about the call center at Expedia. So if you book a flight or hotel or something in something goes wrong with your reservation you call one eight hundred number. What he found made his jaw drop. He found that for every hundred customers. Who booked a transaction? Fifty eight of them ended up calling the call center for help. Which which would pretty much seem to nullify the whole point of having an online self service travel site and so he starts digging into figure out why are so many people calling us in the number one reason people are calling. I mean to the tune of twenty million calls in two thousand twelve was to get a copy of their itinerary was twenty million calls. Can I get a copy of my tannery? And so he and his boss. Just they're like this is madness. We've got to do something about this. And they make the case to the CEO to create a special team to work on this and they do and The technical solutions as you might expect are pretty simple. They changed the way they send. It's not like they forgot to send the itineraries. They were always sending them. It's just they would end up in spam or customers would delete them thinking they were ads or the sort of thing so the change their strategy and emailing they added a self service tools on the VR and online and so forth and they basically took twenty million calls and whittled them down to zero so from from a technical perspective. This is a trivial problem. But I think what's interesting about? This story is is why this problem got to this level like you would think that there would be an alarm bell. That would go off somewhere. Once you reached like your your three million call for hi Tenora like people would start to take this seriously but but the deal is that expedia like like virtually every other company has to organize itself or chooses to organize itself in in silos. And so you got a marketing team whose job it is to to attract customers to expedia versus. Kayak or someone else. And then you've got a product team whose job it is to make the site so smooth and intuitive that the customers are funneled toward a transaction. Then then you've got the tech team that makes the plumbing run and keeps up time high. And you've got the call center that's trying to minimize you. Know the the response. Time to fueled a customer issue and to keep them happy via net promoter score or something like that and from a silo perspective like all of those goals make sense but but the problem is when you ask a very basic question. Like whose job is it to keep customers from needing to call us. The answer was nobody. Yeah Yeah and it was even worse than that like none of those silos even stood to benefit if the number of calls went down and so. That's something I think that that's really interesting. About upstream problems is that it's often very easy to find owners for downstream problems like your house catches on fire. It's the fire departments problem at that point. Like It may not be an easy problem. But it's an easy problem to define an owner for verses if you flip things around and you say whose job is to keep customers from calling or whose job is to keep your house from catching on fire will. That's a very different

I Paddled 40 Miles: This Is What I learned About Money
"Paddled forty miles. This is what I learned about money by Nick true of mapped out money dot com this past weekend my wife and I contact forty miles over two days with a group of friends. My wife's cousin plan the trip and he was able to convince US and three others to quote. Push our limits by embarking on this forty mile track considering that I had never been kayaking before and my wife had only been a couple of times. We were honestly quite surprised to even be able to finish with our arms falling off. Obviously a trip like this requires a lot of physical endurance. But what many people don't see. Is that mental? Endurance is often what separates the boys from the men to give another example a few weeks ago. My wife and I were running our first half marathon. I guess we really bought into this whole pushing our limits idea now. Some people run and some people jog but we like to settle in at a pace. We call a shuffle so we set out from the starting line of the half marathon at a not so brisk shuffle feeling a little uncomfortable in the midst of so many people who appeared to be legit runners. You know who I'm talking about. They have the coordinating outfits the waist belts and the shirts with inspirational workout quotes on them. But we were surprised to find was that are shuffled. Pace actually served US pretty well. Many of the people around us who looked so impressive were walking less than a mile into the race. Which brings me to my point when it comes to accomplishing your goals. Much of your success is dependent on your mental endurance and the ability to pace yourself tools. Don't matter your mindset does during both are kayaking trip and are half marathon my wife and I kept a constant rhythm and pace. It really wasn't very fast but it was constant we kept moving. We kept going. It was completely mental. Were retired absolutely. Did my shoulders feel like they were going to fall off near the end? You Bet but that didn't stop moving. And that's what made the difference. It didn't have anything to do with our tools. It was all mental. So many people get hung up on having the fanciest equipment or the coordinated running outfit but often these things actually keep us from reaching our goals. We say well. I can't do this until I'm able to buy that our got more once. I get that gym membership or I'll save more money pay off my dad etc. Once they get a higher paying job but none of these things will help us reach success. In fact they're often just excuses that we use to keep us from taking action today just like kayaking forty miles or running a half marathon. Success in finance and life in general requires that we set a pace for ourselves and focus on the small wins. So stop thinking about the gear that you don't have or how small your paycheck is and start focusing on how you can best use your current resources to push your own limits mindset. Is what matters when it comes to money. Most people think that they just need the right job or the right college degree and then they could make more money or maybe if they could just get the perfect stock investment or find the right home that would go up in value then they would be set when it comes to making more money. Investing wisely saving a lot or paying down debt. Your mental stamina matters more than anything else. You've got to keep going. You can't focus on the tools you don't have that will never get you anywhere instead. Focus on the path forward. Focus on putting one leg in front of the other or in my case one paddle in front of the other managing money. Well and building wealth is much more about your mental toughness than it is about finding the right tools so stop focusing on the wrong thing just like buying a five hundred dollar driver will make you tiger woods focusing on the latest new. Budgeting APP won't make you rich. Keep these lessons in mind when it comes to your money. If you're not happy with your current situation making excuses for it and complaining about not having the right tools isn't going to change anything if you want a better job. You're going to have to work if you want better house. You're going to have to work if you want more money. You're going to have to work. There's no getting around it and making excuses just isn't going to get you there so stop focusing on the wrong things. Stop paying attention to the latest piece of fancy technology or hottest stock on the market and start focusing your mind on the long term goal. Then just keep going. You can do it you really can. All it takes is a little hard work.

How small coincidences can make seemingly impenetrable cities feel a little more welcoming
"Week. We find solace a stiff drink and an old acquaintance in Shibuya buoy yet. Tokio and learn how small coincidences can make seemingly impenetrable cities feel a little more welcoming his Monaco's Kiara Ramona specific. Look at people. independ- give you when you tell them. It's the first time you've ever been to take you. It's the visual equivalent to here. We go again the first time you see. Everyone is wide-eyed captivated by lights. The crowd the noise the constant jingles blaring out of stations. Buildings elevators escalators shops. Trains streets to a Gagen Asian. The Japanese term for foreign. The city feels enormous and mesmerizing. It feels like a brand new world where it's easy to disappear and so it was for for me walking through the neighborhood of Chablis on my maiden voyage waiting at a street lights of the area's famous crossing surrounded by hundreds of people. Ready to step onto the Tomek Doc. The assumption for the Newbie and who has never been to take you is that this is a fast moving city of skyscrapers and almost impassable modernity but it takes a little more than string of the Shibuya crossing for a couple of hundred meters to realize that really. This isn't the whole story. It was late evening when my trusted dinner companions and I finally left the sober restaurant we were at and ventured in search of a buffer Sunday night cap on meanderings didn't initially really yield results instead leading. US Old way back to that famous crossing and just a little beyond PAS- flyover tucked behind the railway tracks. A small low built alleyway adorned with London's appeared along it where a cluster of microscopic Baaz one of the other. Some were already closed even even take your gets it Sunday evenings after all but some were still open still finding the seat. Even at that time of night was far from easy.

If that's the case that's mainly because of the encounters and conversations that such a close setup inevitably leads needs to Shibuya is is not the only place of this kind in Tokyo or in the country. Similar streets hide and Shinjuku Ebisu. Shimbashi many have have their origins in the nineteen fifties when black markets for food popped up close to the city.

Travel to the Mississippi Gulf Coast
"Let's talk about Mississippi's Gulf coast. I I like to welcome the show Charles. McColl from McCall Travel Dot Com and Charles's come to talk to us about coastal Mississippi Charles. Welcome mm to the show. Hi Chris how are you today. I'm doing well and we're talking about the state of Mississippi. What is your connection with coastal Mississippi? As a travel writer. I have visited the coastal Mississippi a few times over the past two years and after going there three or four times. I decided that I loved that area and other parts of the US Gulf coast. So much that I developed a new brand called. US Golf coast which covers everything from key. West South Padre but we are talking only about coastal Mississippi debut today so as a travel writer I covered it several times. Excellent and why should someone go to coastal Mississippi. We'll we'll talk about many things but it is is unique. The unique destination the United States. It has the longest continuous beach in the United States. Which I think a lot of people don't know I love road road trips? I travel all over the world. Love driving and there's this sense of soul fulfillment I drive on the Mississippi Gulf coast. I where it's just different than anywhere else. You can drive for an hour and not see anything except for the sand in the water is unobstructed by condos and indulge and restaurants. And what have you so this this great peace and calm and different than anywhere else. Excellent and what kind of itinerary tenorio you're going to recommend for us. It's not a singular destination. There are many communities there. So I'm GonNa recommend some things to do in each of the communities go along the coastal Mississippi. It's all still call the Mississippi Gulf coast. So I'M GONNA use both terms interchangeably. I don't want you to drive fifty miles in one day for lunch and then go drive fifty miles back so I will concentrate on the various communities and say all right first day. You're going to be here second day. You're going to be here and so on and we can do a three four five seven ten very well. Let's get into it where you're GONNA start it. Let's start in Pascagoula. So Mississippi is between Alabama and Louisiana China so coastal Mississippi represents the entire Mississippi Gulf coast so over on the east side closest Alabama Alabama. If you're driving from mobile the first thing you're gonna hit is Pascagoula. The city is probably most famous. because it's where Jimmy Buffett was born. Okay I did not I know that. Yeah so that's going to set the expectations for what the coastal Mississippi areas. All about thank Jimmy Buffett was born there so we're already at our five o'clock somewhere attitude. Pascagoula is also a navy base. So there's a lot of military and also industry the street going on there but it's it's a seafaring community. It's laid-back relative to some of the other cities. We'll talk about. Well what are we going GonNa do in Pascagoula one of the things that happened in past the goal of that as I guess lesser known as that one of the biggest UFO abduction stories in in US history happened there. So back in the seventies the couple of people claim that they were abducted by UFO. And so they were never disproven even so. That's one of the most famous things that happened in Pascagoula. Okay but other than being abducted by aliens. What am I going to do in Pascagoula for won a narrow down here to the the oldest house in Mississippi isn't Pascagoula okay? It's called the lapointe Krebs House and museum now so I went. There are a couple of months ago and I was fascinated by Howell. They showed the construction of how house was done in the bleed was the seventeen. Twenty s house was built the How they use the for the the hair from animals as insulation in the house and things like that kind of interesting Seventeen fifty seven. Is there anything specific renovated the Krebs House. We're going to go to the Krebs House. You could probably spend a couple of hours there. It's a nice waterfront setting and you can get some history of the. The natives that lived in the area and then European settlers came in and saw a whole history of Mississippi but the main point there there's to see the the house and the oldest house in the Mississippi Delta region I think between Minnesota and the Gulf of Mexico. It's the oldest house that's still in the American frontier. I'm thinking New Orleans would be older than that but I mean the city might be but I'm not sure if there's a structure that's older than point good point. The city is older but I don't know if there are any of original houses. Okay Fair enough. But another thing that I really loved in Pascagoula. The Motto Bon Center. I believe the official is the best. Gula River Audubon Bond Center captain McCoy Relation on McColl. And there's a captain McCoy and he runs nature trips out of the Pascagoula River River Audubon Center and what I loved about. It is that I learn things. Obviously like you learn on most trips but the Pascagoula River is the longest. And I'm not going to get the the terminology right. It's the longest une damned river in the continental united in a at states. Yeah so I was fascinated by that and I was like well. What about this wherever they were like now? It was dammed at some point. So the Pascagoula River I believe is four four hundred and eighty miles. That is natural the way it's always been so it hasn't been dammed. It hasn't been obstructed by any kind of construction directions so you can see wildlife and nature the way that it was several hundred years ago. Something didn't expect expect to find in coastal Mississippi or anywhere else and you say wildlife. I'm picturing talking marshes birds alligators that sort of thing. Am I in the right right ballpark. You're right and one thing that that's dominant in this area or the Mississippi sandhill cranes which are relatively large bird. I'm sure there are in other parts that states but there is a sandhill crane refuge that none in Pascagoula but on the other side so I tend cuts through through the area so from mobile bill to New Orleans. You would drive high tech Postal Mississippi. I'm talking about everything. South of I ten okay. North of town the Pascagoula River would go up there. And that's where the sandhill crane. Refuges the birds. No birds don't recognize boundaries. They fly all over the place. So you can see that. I was on the riverboat tour. Okay the AUDUBON center is like most centers they want to promote the natural wildlife and the scenery. And that's so forth and it's a really hidden gem. I think that most people don't recognize will in because it has the name Audubon on it. I'm assuming calmly talking about birdlife predominantly. So yes okay. I don't know if everybody knows. I mean Audubon as a as a charity I think is well known but Google Audubon. You'll find what is James Audubon. Is that the a original one who did all the original drawings of birds in the early. US That's really neat. Watercolors this fascinating realistic catches does right. So I mentioned captain McCoy so you could take his crews out of the audubon center also wrench around Kayak and I did did that one time and going at your own pace around the marshes fascinating at least a dozen gainers and as close they would just scatter into the water. So I love love doing that at my own pace to excellent and John James Audubon. I got it almost John James. Okay when I said early. I didn't realize how early he was. He was born in seventeen eighty five and so he was basically drawing birds up until about the Mexican American war. You're in the US. And so as the frontiers were being filled in a he was out there with his sketch pad. MOM IN ESTA goal. There's obviously the Jimmy Buffett stuff to the native son. A I think he this family left when he was three and then he grew up in mobile but he has come back and he recognizes Pascagoula his birthplace so there is a beach and a bridge and his childhood home are all named for Jimmy Buffett. The parrot heads can go and pay pilgrimage to Jimmy Buffett and go visit some of those sites and one of my favorite places the Pascagoula is called bozos grocery. It's a very old school from the nineteen fifties place where you go in you place your order and you wait inside. been there two or three times. The last time I went kayaking at the river Audubon Center. In fact I got a takeout L. Poboy from Bozo's grocery and then took it on the Kayak. But it's this old school place where you go in and you place your order and you order order off the menu. You don't make up stuff and there was some guy in front of me. That was a visitor and he wasn't a local either and so he went on these. ZAC Oh can I make this substitution. Know what's on the bed. Yeah and I was like basically your choices are you. You get what you WANNA shrimp boat boy. You want poboy poboy being sandwich. A sub someplace else or a hoagie or a hero depending on where you're from but a pavilion in this region of the world. Okay and shrimp being the best known. One that I now. They're also known for their Fried Oysters. Poboy so okay. I got a half in half half. It's amazing I had a couple dozen po boys and along the Gulf coast and I it's one of the better ones side totally recommend going to Bozo groceries to get to take out to go kayaking or he.
Finding the Right Therapist
"The one thing that the research shows clearly in terms of the benefits benefits of therapy in other words. What is it about a given therapist that increases the probability that professional is going to be effective? Have good outcomes and most of the research shows that the thing the necessary ingredient that distinguishes someone who is effective versus. Not so much is deep. empathic atonement so no matter. What kind of therapies being used to have that empathic attuned other person in the room with you seems to be the sort of secret sauce? The magic ingredient that makes treatment Effective and that is categorically. been my experience so I'm not surprised by that. Found the finding now that still doesn't mean that Just empathy is all you need right. You need a certain kind of treatment and there are many treatments out there now. That are so called evidence based and so let's just talk About not just the treatment but also how to navigate the system generally speaking the way. No one whenever does this but the way it ought to be done. It should be done properly is you. I realize you're having symptoms If those symptoms are causing you difficulty the functioning which is sort of the threshold between you know just being miserable or having the blues and really. They're being medical problem. Trouble functioning and workers worker school relationships your cognitive functioning your legal functioning your work putting all those areas school functioning. Something's not going quite right. And you'd have some symptoms symptoms. That is a marker for medical treatment. I think you should always start with your primary caretaker and have a medical evaluation because I cannot tell you how how frequently psychiatric symptoms are the presenting manifestation of medical problems so the first thing is to rule out a medical problem. Then we'll have that ideally because again one of the problems with mental health services in this country has had. Who Do you go to how do you? How do you know what's not good? It's a pretty random process. I actually spoke about this at length yesterday. And a podcast called whiskey ginger with Andrew Santino. You like whiskey ginger. I love that show. You're a very a funny guy. He's very funny. He's a good interviewer too. So we get into some heavy stuff and so again you can hear more about that whiskey ginger and so then I I in my mind the way to do this properly as the primary caretaker refers you to a psychiatrist psychiatrists than does does a diagnostic. workup a medical psychiatric workup and comes up with a framework of diagnostic impressions. To help us understand what's going going on with you when you know. One of the things in medicine is if you don't have a diagnosis. You don't have a treatment. The treatments that we use are studied in the context of a particular diagnosis so up the treatments treatments are applied without the diagnosis. You're not likely to have a good outcome. So first and foremost does is. They're accurate. Diagnosis in is this an evidence based treatment for that diagnosis. Oh so proper diagnosis and treatment. Then that because the contrast are physicians they should make a decision as to whether or not pharmacotherapy. It'd be appropriate then. Ideally yeah that's a Kayak will refer you to the type of therapist you need. Cognitive behavioral therapies are very effective these days dialectical behavioral therapies for people that have personality analogy issues emotionally focused therapies for couples and people that serve longer term exploration difficulty accessing feelings regulating emotions. You may be referred specifically to Mutual Aid Society peer base things which are evidence based treatments and they are free. And they're on every corner things. I Dan twelve step that kind of thing. Then they're sort of many many other categories out there like if you say failure pharmacotherapy there might be trans cranial magnetic stimulation relation where these magnets to to raise the chemicals in the region of the brain associated with depression extremely effective therapies with almost no side effects. Or are you going to be said for mindfulness. RPM again a train. You at mindfulness or do you need physical Rehab and just get yourself mobile. They're all kinds of ideas about how to optimize mental health intervention. Do you need vocational rehabilitation. Should you be changing your work is there. Are there problems in a relationship where you need to have somebody come in and Brealey sort out. What's going on into personally or in the family dynamics so there's a lot of ways to approach these things and the professional should be making the decisions? The individual trying trying to navigate this. I'll be willing. It would be

Things to do in Krabi, Thailand
"We are talking about crabby Thailand. It has province in the southwest side of Thailand that has absolutely beautiful beaches says and cliff sides amazing food and more culture than you could possibly want stuffed the tiniest little spot. What is your connection with Krabi? So when my my husband and I sold everything to travel the world fulltime we didn't know much except for the fact that Thailand was cheap. We bought one way tickets to Bangkok Thailand because they were the cheapest for this tickets that we can get from home and we've really wanted something different well. After spending two weeks and Bangkok and realizing that the city life was way too much for us. If you've been to Bangkok you know the little intense in culture shocking. When you're first coming there from the Western world is like your first and traction with Asia so we had heard from some friends about this place? It's called crabby that it's really cool. There's some nice beaches and I grew up in Miami Florida so that was something that was very appealing to me right being right the ocean and seeing islands what we flew down there in what originally originally we thought was going to be just a three day trip and we ended up extending for three consecutive weeks. And now we've been back there four times the last two years ears and one of the places that I'm going to be talking about called railway between them back there seven times in the last two years Including to celebrate our honeymoon. So I'm excited. Yeah congratulations and why should somebody to copy. Somebody should go to crabby because it's so full of culture and it's small still well. It's one of those places that in a place like Thailand where you have places like Pu cut in Pattaya that are coastal and beautiful and rich of culture but stuff full of tourists crabby is almost undiscovered undiscovered enough. It still has people and they're still enough infrastructure to make it a comfortable place to go vacation but it's also a place where you can go and take a boat that it's ten minutes away to rally beach and have this beautiful cove of limestone cliffs and Gorgeous sunsets and feel like you have paradise almost to yourself especially especially when you're traveling there in low season which will talk about. What kind of ten are you gonNA recommend for us so today? I'm going to be talking about a seven day through crabby grabby. Most people only go there for a couple of days. So we're GONNA go really in depth about the beautiful places. We're going to go to some hikes we're going to take you through some islands. Lynne's and some coves that you can go visit and also some local gems that not a lot of people go to their about two hours away and also talking about an absolutely beautifully beautifully untouched national park in Thailand cool. Well let's get started where we're gonNA start going to land in the beautiful province of crabby Thailand and then had stray the onto railay beach for day one so we probably flew in through Bangkok. And we're catching a local Thailand airline to get down here. Yes and usually. They're very very very inexpensive. It'll be about route fifty bucks to fly into crabby and then a six dollar grab ride into the area which is where the main beaches are. There's there's a walking street there but for the first day we're going to go straight to the pier. Where for just three dollars? You can take a ten minute long tail boat to Railay beach. You'RE GONNA land on Railay Beach West us and immediately you are welcomed by these enormous one thousand foot limestone cliffs. That are just so dramatic and they hug the coastline. So the moment you come in. It's almost like the class are giving you a hug of welcome you land on the beach and it's crystal clear water you're walking through and you can already see all all of the traditional long tail boats and listen to time music and then as you're going through the really beach walking street on either side you're going to have vendors trying to serve you pad Thai or Tomko guy which are all really typical dishes of the south and it just overwhelms the census and I know time but I don't know the other one okay. So autom- Kakai is coconut soup dish. And it's made with lemon grass and tomatoes and mushrooms and you can have it with chicken but even just the vegetarian version. It's just the perfect blend of sweet and fresh. It's one of my favorite dishes in south Thailand dimmed that have not been further south than Bangkok. So Oh I don't know that interesting out there. I know I know I. I've been to Thailand. I don't know three or four times now but But have not been to the beaches so one other thing that I wanted to pause while while breaking word that you mentioned taking grabs a we want to have the grab APP on her phone when we get there. And that's the Thailand Thailand. But it's a like Uber absolutely and the Nice thing is and we'll talk about some negotiation skills later on in places where the grab is too far away in order to get to. We use grab as a negotiation strategy as well so we will put in the location. See how much the grab drivers are charging and then use that as a base price negotiate sheet with Tuk Tuk taxis and that works well especially if you're in a hurry or you need to catch a bowl or you have a tour planned out and you don't have time to wait and see if you're grab is going to show up. That's a great method ticket to get around in Thailand as well so we've made it to really of each. Were walking through the Railay beach walking street and then literally like I mentioned. You're just overwhelmed with the southern Thailand. Vibes lives the food. You have monkeys. They have dusky lingers in Thailand. I call him little thieves because they are these fuzzy black monkeys with white circles around their eyes. They almost like raccoons but they are just so sweet they hang and perch on all of the trees above the walking street so literally there may be like three feet above your head dropping leaves on view as their munching on them. And so you're able to walk through and they're called a little thieves so I'm guessing they're so sweet until they take your stuff so actually not those. I call them little thieves. They look like they're wearing a scheme but they do also have a long tail macaques which they call the Thailand Mafia. Those absolutely steal your stuff got got it so anyway when you get to relieve each we have a favorite resort that we stay at. That's called the Railway Putu one resort. It's unreal East which is a more quiet side railway west as we're all all of like the really absurdly expensive five-star hotels brush your teeth for you. If you were to ask on the railway puts a one is a leave. It's a four star hotel but it has an absolutely amazing view of the islands in Thailand like COPE EP and all of the area over there on the west coast. And when you talk about the silence these are these karst mountains fantastic things look like they're out of some sort of special effects for movie. Yes they look like. You're going through Avatar Avatar this world and also something that I didn't realize when it came to cliffs attract bats because you're silvery caves so at nighttime you're sitting on the balcony. You have an infinity pool that looks over the ocean. It's framed by these absurdly enormous limestone cliffs. You're watching the monkeys from your balcony. Play in the the trees and swing from vine to vine and it just doesn't even look real. I told my husband last time that we are on railway west I was like if I had to explain to God or the universe or whatever ever what my paradise would look like it would be railay beach at sunset it now. You talked about having the resort with the infinity pool and so people who haven't met a Thailand. They're thinking you're spending four or five hundred dollars per night or up from there. What are the rates for that kind of place in Thailand? Oh my gosh rush. I think we paid fifty dollars during the beginning of high season for a room with a beautiful view about Johnny and it was private and the bathroom author was gorgeous. It had a Batta that also had a window wall. But it's only one way so people from the pool champion. You could literally be taking a bath and be staring at this. The outside it's crazy all right them. That's what you're going to be doing in the first avenue. Beach checking into that hotel and then as far as things to do on rarely beach it really has something for everybody if you wanted to. Just sit on the beach on railway west which is the most popular one or my personal favorite. which has put on Numb beach? It's a little bit of a walk as maybe like fifteen minutes off of railway west but personally it's just there's less people there. There's an enormous cliffside that turns into okay that you can swim to from that beach and also so one of the more interesting bits about that. Beach is the fact that they have something called penon cave or princess gave. And it's actually a worshiping location Asian for the Princess God of fertility. I think it was Shiva. And fishermen would bring Phallic shape statues and put them in the cave before fishing thing because that was supposed to yield a fruitful fishing expedition. And so literally you walk into this giant cave just Pena statues everywhere. But it's it's all part of the religion and the culture so not meant to be an appropriate. Obviously also on. This is really common common for people to go rock climbing railay beach and that towns I area which is on the same bay is known for having some of the best free climbing cliffs in the world because they are so textured word and so it's a great place to learn. It costs about thirty dollars to go on one of the expeditions to go and try rock climbing for the first time. And you're trying it out on one of the most beautiful full and scenic tropical locations in the world. You mentioned a lot of boats are the boots that are on the beach just fishing boats or are there water sports career as well so not so much water sports if you're looking for things like parasailing and things like that or wake boarding you're not gonNA find that they're not even honestly. I haven't even seen a banana boat. A lot of people do Kayak however and You can rent a kayak for about six dollars an hour and that lets you go and see things like Coda and chicken island which are only about forty five minutes kayaking from the railway West Beach. When you've been about there are some people who are listening? Who are wondering what you're talking about so banana? An anti votes are those. They're literally in the shape of a banana but people kind of straddle them and it'll be like eight people on the back of a boat and it'll drag you and then throw you under the water. It goes really fast.

Suite executives business companies and talk insurance to them and understand what their concerns would be about a particular business model and have mitigating opportunities in the contract to make sure that they don't get earned by being able to do that I was helped to bring them onboard suit what was it they wanted what was it that they were afraid of back before you had any users use they're worried about this being only a price and when you build a price comparison website it's a meaningful concern for them but what's been great is we find out that consumers also care about the price L. scared by the brand prices important they're not going to spend the bows dollars more on something you know about it but we're able to allay those years how basically saying we're going to be the new brand year knocking to matter anymore your ads might be even drowned out by us how do you keep them from being worried about that they are it's a valid fear if they come to us that have coming to them it's a major concern and you will find out however there's tons there's three hundred auto insurance Johnny's in the US you probably shopped three so there's two hundred ninety seven of them that go how do I get on Andrews lists well one of the ways is if compared dot com get on their list I'll suddenly introduce potentially dozens of insurance companies into the equation without them having the time that's another important part of the equation is the carriers can participate on our panel at zero costs they only pay when somebody else's he says I want to purchase incomplete purchase so it's a lower cost avenue a certain costs avenue for them to artists and they still need to build in to your product how much was involved for that I have a friend who's WHO's fading banking product banking APP and asked him why am I suddenly seeing a lot of startups create bank related APP stock.

"I don't upon tune boat. I don't Travis and it was really nice and just being out there on the water made me realize like I like this. I like this. I think. Yeah. You remember when I first met you you had just returned from a fourth of July weekend in which you spent a fair amount of time on a lake. Yes. And you were real just about it. That was mostly raft based okay raft base activities. But yeah. So when I was trying to think of what I really like about being out on water on a boat. My first big reason is that it's not it's not the land, and that's kind of wild. It's like you're in another sort of realm of the earth that we live on. And really that realm is the biggest one it's. It's quite quite big than the land realm. You can't discount. The fact that you're sort of exploring you're experiencing the world on a completely different kind of surface. I think that's very good. Like, what's even out there on the water? I don't know because I don't go out there very often. I wish I came in here and you had a dry race board on the wall. And it just showed your thought process for putting together a wonderful topic. And I can see you writing down boat than an aero and then land and allying I've written I've written by and big capital letters circled. It. I'm just saying I look at it a swamp, and I'm like, I can't go out there. But then I get on a hovercraft. And I and I have been on hovercraft before my my took me out on one down in Florida. And we had ourselves. Great time did not like the loud noise at the hover by like being out there. It just makes you being out there on water makes you feel like anything's possible. Because now you're on water, and you shouldn't be okay. Number two. I don't usually get boat sick. But that may change on the cruise, hopefully, it doesn't. But I like the experience of just kind of being on a surface. That's not exactly steady. I think it's very soothing. I think that can be very nice. Yes. Does this thrill apply to plane usage for you? Oh god. Now because you're up in the air in an is different. If if while I was up in the air the plane, I only plane movement when I'm out I'm not like afraid to fly or anything like that. But like I don't enjoy turbulence if that's dressing. But if the turbulence was like. A gentle swaying back and forth Desailly baby in cradle. You think about it? That's kind of what being in the womb. But his like it was like being on a boat. I mean, I don't remember. But I can imagine I think that's a Jimmy Buffett lyric being something about a boat being like a womb. And yeah, have just a macro ready for questions like this. I mean, I could probably get him. It's number. It wasn't his boat either. I'm never gonna say what Jato was on. You'll have to you'll have the guess also if you're on the ocean, you don't only get that feel of the rocket in the row, and you get this Mel of the salt, and the feel the breeze and the sound of the it's a sensory explosion. It's so nice. I'm very excited to get out on that big boat. Number three being on a boat is also usually tied to some other fun activity. Whether it is jumping off the boat and swimming with all your friends having a good time, or you know, whitewater rafting, which I've done before and very much enjoy or, you know, having some Bruce with your buds as long as you have a designated boat driver because I don't fuck with that. And yeah, it's just nobody gets on a boat to do their taxes. You know, if you've ever driven about have driven a boat you're talking about about with like a motor on it. Yes. House. Would you try it? I was gonna say like I've driven a kayak. I've let's paddling dear as I have not. I think it'd be really good curious what it's like. You think they'll let me drive the cruise ship? I think they've probably will. If you ask very nicely like a little cruise pin on like a little miniature pilot..

'cause the people that around the places you get to go to the funny get to head there in the kind of lost yet.

Recipes out of the boot. So one of the coolest recipes in the book is the chick goulash. I'll tell you that story. 'cause I'm actually in Prague in Czech Republic right now, and that's one of my base buddies. We used to status parents house, and his mama was cooked. This recipe the cheek girlish, so we loved it and and it reminded us a lot of the good times when you're younger and year, but Moltke friend and just limited off as much as you can in Europe. So we put that in the air, put her recipe in the little story about him and his family because I was so good to us. And so each recipes cut a law that plus we have the pebble of New Zealand tradition and some fringe cripes we've go bowling is that an Italian friend we we used to during the rices have luck marketing rules, kind of stop coughs long before markets rose fat. The Italians generally cook, amazing food compete to the Kelly's and, hey, Hey, you you. contesting for twenty twenty talking guys. Yup. Yet we're in full swing now. So that's why I'm in Prague, which trying to on the cool wicked sit up and the means caught some Secaucus we set pedal to blades. We are program is based here for the next six weeks.

You have the obvious peddling skills, which she, she does too, but she has done a whole heap of other courses survival causes, for example. What other prep have you done apart from knowing hats, negotiated Olympia. Well, before before it went on one of much of Africa, I was just googling what to doing crooked tick. And that was an came up with this ingenious ways. You've got to get your hand down its mouth Varner so that the little bell that keeps the water out of its lungs. Opens, and that was kind of a joke plan if we go to ten. But to be honest, we valve, you go. Not used to not used to anything attacking us, you know, but I'm with plan. We'll have fist, I'd training. Generally take something like an enraged with me. So if it was case scenario you've got comes at least in in a helicopter could come pick you up. We do river riskiest courses will actually we not too much, but just by being on the revenue, you know a lot of skills around roadwork how to get you buddies out and and we've been doing this of us out of the spindles students almost twenty years Lynn, a couple of little things, but you still find yourself in situations. You have absolutely no idea what you should do. The section that series gonna be pedaling the the what would have sections called Mitch some fools on the now. And we ran that if he is that was that was full on, it's I five days urine, a really big national park that has very little exits in a hell of a lot of animals. We would pass thousand hippos in really dangerous in a bunch of crocs. And I also a guy we had a local, go on the rafts 'cause we appending and you take a rough support so you can get out in the flagpole. So the crooks count you in sit on the raft. What would happen if something went wrong in these, what you could walk to the road which is city case, but there's no way you guys would make it. Just on the wildlife. Did you see many snakes because Sarah scared the snakes clean writing for the hug. Did you see it? Well, you don't. You don't see snake say, 'cause I'm scared of snakes through. I've seen a few, but let freak me up nights and spot and one friend, this guy, Pete mirror through the absolute legion. When it comes to bet country Africa, he knows the ins and outs of everything how to get through any situation. And when the kids go a major away from the Reverend of the Bush because I'm freaking out about anything in there and he's just don't step on a pathetic. Pathetic is he's a snake that would just law on the path one move, but when you step on his body and and so you don't really see snakes. You see a lot of crocs a lot of hippos. You might see some wildlife kills on the other side of the river or something. But animals generally run a run away from me through far more than Sarah. She was just gonna have it On on the the head head with with the. a pedal. It's not that close. Is that close you. Screwed. You didn't. So when you win this whole studying, when you doing. So hitting down in October star, November, we're going to contain the fist. We went into let Ricky it in two thousand fifteen. I've been going on the river, but it was just me and one buddy had a hard time convincing a good team to come in. So we did what we could, but basically just laid the foundations to go back this year and we'll have we'll have five athletes on the water, which is good because you can get a safety. You can work much more teams get down the river. You can go onto the bigger gorgeous because you you can get yourself back out with two of you. You know, if you pedal to down, you might end up on a rock taking a gorge without any exit strategy with a big attainment just gives you more freedom to to do more outlay. So what does this diffent?.

"What do you mean? You help some local gods? What are you. Also, the cool thing was slalom, is that to be good at it? You have to go to the venue a lot. So say trek cycling or something. Basically every trek is pretty much the same. You kinda know what you're gonna get an futa as you figure out the track. Whereas slalom this song, many features on the course. You have to go and learn it combination because you don't know the coal Cigna sit so before Rio with if for I think the twelve weeks off and on the coast of the very every two, three weeks would flaw Theriault spin to exit training on the goals and fly out to recover from the chaos than what that means is we got like a much more sort of feel for the city, and we got to see a whole lot more going on. So we decided me a Brazilian God decided to make some food packages and gone. Drop them off around Rio Kazman Saint so many homeless people, and we also staying in the cheapest hotel. We could find which is right in the middle of the fella. So we had like a little. Out of a more exposure to that side of the city than perhaps staying in the Olympic village during the gangs we would have said as pretty cool, we got to make some people would probably never talk to never made a Hartley made the died in and gave them a little bit of a league out for a few days. But it was a lot of fun as well. All right. Now we're down another rabid. I'm sorry. Living in Favila made PayPal. Well, we we were living in the familiar, but Nick Stewart. But a lot of on I can do for villa, two or somebody will nine. That's where you bet. She's done some videos. We, we send our general manager Kris noble. And it was an amazing experience. He says, I think that comes through. How did you find. Did you think. Now, like we're pretty, we've been on so many with the expedition and you go to a lot of places that are kind of dangerous and you get into a lot of situations that you, you skied, self surreal felt pretty safe. But in saying that when we would the food drug, we will make you a little kind of film about to showcase and the other side of the the city outside of the games and and kinda showcases stories of the gods that wouldn't be up to buy the tickets and wouldn't be able to be part of the Olympic so much and may my buddy jumped on the chill. If that takes you up to del Castillo, which is kind of the central drug trafficking fella. And we ended up at the top of the villa standing on a corner, and then we've started hiding his. It was quite a lot going on, and then we started. So the filming a bit and in this lady came running out of nowhere. We like to get out of there would take good hour and a half of running through the villa. So we kinda skewed in. She's a yelling at us, Portuguese. Basically, we get the gist of unity get hit right now. So we, we jumped back into the chill run back up to the because they have the chill of so you can safely get in and out for the locals and jump back into the chill of than just just get. The other athletes doing. Oh, they were training. How did you go in the. Guys. Good.

You with our. Departure is almost always Lambert, in Saint Louis So Saint Louis is a very interesting case because Saint Louis used, to be a hub airport and now it's not because of you know first TWA went away and then American didn't see the need for the hub and so it puts Saint Louis into a more expensive situation terms of air travel At first but now it's lead to lower prices in Saint Louis. And like I'm looking at kayak explore right now and most, everywhere in the country Is. Very inexpensive from Saint Louis including there are places out of Saint Louis that are Turbo cheap where you can go at under a hundred dollars potentially round trip I'm looking at. Some places that are as little as, fifty eight dollars round trip out of Saint, Louis, so if you go to kayak explore, you can, see all, over the country say well I never really thought about going there but gosh like, today, San Francisco's one ninety eight.

"Enough about like sort of the power dynamics there whatever but it it seems like especially in something that's fundamentally just like such a fucked up gray market with all these ugly efficiency inefficiencies built into it because of how unjust fundamentally it is for lack of a better word like yeah having like an extra dominant team on top of all that other shit like really does make it a bomber the nfl it's just the fact that like the patriots are much better run and better coach and other teams and they got tom brady but i mean it's like it but so i don't think i don't think that helps and yet at the same time as somebody that is no longer like officially superduper aligned with any team in either the nfl or in college football it's like a handy shorthand for you know like me by the time you get to the super bowl or the national championship game you kinda know who your cheering for which is the team that doesn't feel like you know whatever like the grinding process of the world making everything should here like the other river that other one is is not like that so that's when you shower the new the new guys the upstarts i right the ira from georgia with a black and red colour scheme that somehow lines a frustrating you even though you barely care about them in this case i and also where to guide and i and i've said this before i i really do enjoy watching tom play play quarterback and also uh and we'll runs down a second but it's it's never a bad thing to have that team in the super bowl because they always play tight clothes super bowls in they have been involved basically in like six of the greatest lecture bull games of all time yes so even if they don't end the way you want they're all like those are the best football teams of most seasons which is not yet they're of super bowls that don't involving like it like even in recent memory the ones that they haven't been involved in these kind of like goofy fluffy blowouts.

"That like odell beckham to complete pay in the ass to deal with you and and and and so it it can go too far than the other direction where if sort of the the people you don't like are you know are dishing out takes about this guy you almost serve reflexively you know sort of swerve left to defend him but that oh that's that's the mistake i think right i mean it's the same thing that decorous talking about in terms of with i think politics and so if we are reacting to other people's reactions in the actual object of the thing like did you know at the core of all of it is kind of lost in it becomes this thing that you're doing to either on the libs or well but upset the pepys i don't know what the the thing that that goes right what did not have a foul on and curry was clearly you know the the way he does he he was clearly alluding to something bigger in society and of course that means is alluding a trump and that to me also that goes into what happened the golden globes and sunday night when uh of winfrey over win for gave a speech in your typical of her she was very eloquent an and just you know just magnetic incredibly charismatic just you know just it just the sort of thing where you watch it for eight minutes and you feel good that you that you heard that speech and i felt really good about yourself hearing it uh and then after that was like well she should be president and then there were reports plus two she definitely must be present noxious wanted president and there was this directly to not shed she's already oprah and i mean link except for the launchcode she's basically as powerful as the president would be at this point.

"Hard not to react to it but it is like i think that's 100 percent what it is and i know probably more interesting if i disagreed but it's one of those deals were like in the absence of actual appeal you can get he's still generates heat like wrestling why's he just like rice sucks and he's boring there's also uh the fact that i think he probably gets parent twitter up in arms does this nothing parents online love to do more than a judge apparent other girls helje so i think maybe that's you know as his these sort of the embodiment of every nightmare sports parent he just he just rolled with that and that made him somebody that was good to sort of yell about even if you do not enjoy uh you know absorbing information about him i think that's a it's a very weird dynamic it is i think that's like the the thing that's interesting about ball at live outlive arm number alonso's as interesting player but lake in the abstract it's that there's all these different ways of sort of reading him right as being like this hellish parent or there's like sort of a awoke leftaligned reading of him as somebody that is like revolutionizing the basketball economy by taking this agency with his kids and by starting his own sneaker brand and trying to brand his kids that way and all that stuff in like that's interesting as far as it goes intil you have to actually deal with of our ball himself who is black folks you know and so it's a you can defend it only to the point where you have to actually engaged it i i agree with that i think that x going too far the other where you now and i've actually i've had this problem sometimes in terms of nfl players dislike look like i will always defend odell beckham and boat takes and all that stuff but there's also you know the very very real possibility.

"We should we should talk about the balls because i know and i know we've talked about this before and there's only so much of our ball you wanna talk about but first of all uh i believe was lamella just took his first shot is a lithuanian pro and fuck in britain and then also uh as as it happens uh the var bitched about love uh luke walton and of course the media's piane and that made coaches who are not involved at all the lakers very salty steve curve the warriors and rick carlisle the mavericks are both very very kissed about just the the existence of love our ball so i've got a winning earned a different ways to which is interesting yet like the full spectrum of like vinegary type a nba coach personality that's right and so here's karlau he says those of us in the sport bleed nba vessels grace born the world when lat ignorant noise poses a threat to our great game we should all take a stand against it that's carlisle and then kerr uh and he says he went on a altair you went and i'm not i'm going to read the whole thing because it's just it's too long but he he tied it into the s p and layoffs and he said uh let's see people he had uh the ball hands for no apparent reason other this become he's become the car dashing of the nba that cells and that's what true politics entertainment and now in sports as marriage is any substance evolved in issue it's just can we make it really interesting for no apparent reason it's a societal issue it's been going on for many many years and i think it's invading the sports world now so he did the we should a gareau weeds sorta stuff do these guys have any legitimate complaint about a guy that they don't they're not even formally associated with i mean they do in the sense that link of our balls annoying and they both identified what's annoying about the fact that he's so president i think it's as i'm tony daly is where the distinction was from you i think that like carlisle the idea of it being like a an issue that needs to be addressed in the tone of life.
