New York Post Miranda Devine Reports That Joe Biden Knew About Hunter's Overseas Business
"Back in 2015 with Hunter and his dad Joe, with two Mexican billionaires, one of them being Carlos Slim, who at one point was the world Richest man and didn't hear it. Doesn't he own part of the New York Times as I require my wrong, But exactly, he bailed out The New York Times. Exactly. So maybe that's one clue why there's no coverage of this. Who knows why there is the Praetorian God as you say, But you know these We're Hunter Biden's business associates. There were people that Hunter Biden either was making money from always hoping to make money from was trying to get involved with or was involved with. And you know, we have already just recently ran another story in another photograph.

C. And we know that Joe Biden popped in there and Now we have this evidence of a breakfast meeting and November 1920 15 in the living room of the residents of Vice presidents, residents with four hunters, business partners. So, um, I just don't understand how the White House Is not addressing this. At some point. They're going to have to confront the evidence that the president was involved in the hunter Biden's overseas business dealings and at some point, Joe Biden is going to have to admit that he lied when he told The world several times during the election campaign that he knew nothing about Hunter Biden's business dealings
What are Frontier Markets?
"As i was doing the research. I was fascinated by the sheer size of frontier markets in terms of population. Two point two billion people. A third of the world's population yet the economic impact at this point is still small only about three and a half percent of the world's gross domestic product the monetary value of goods and services produced a third of the world's population produces less than five percent of economic output. This size of the stock market's even smaller frontier markets. Make up less than one percent of global stock market capitalization that's the size of the equity market as determined by the price of a particular company times the shares outstanding less than one percent. And there aren't even that many stocks there are three thousand stocks that comprise the msi all country world index which is both developed and emerging markets. There are fourteen hundred emerging market stocks yet in the mci frontiers market and xers only eighty one stocks the countries that comprise that in. And i'll just go through the list. Because i think it's helpful and instructive to know what's there is croatia estonia iceland lithuania kazakhstan romania serbia's slovenia other countries include kenya morocco. Area bahrain jordan oman bangladesh lanka vietnam the largest country within the index as measured by market capitalization or sizes vietnam. It comprises thirty percent of the frontier market index. Morocco is twelve percent. Iceland's eight percent. Kenya seven percent. Kazakhstan is seven percent in looking at ways to invest the primary. Etf i found for us based investors is the i shares mci frontier and select emerging market. Etf i'm not sure exactly when i shares renamed it but the largest wait in that. Etf is kuwait at nineteen percent. And as i mentioned kuwait was upgraded from my frontier market to an emerging market.

The Denisovans Expand Their Range Into China
"Like modern humans than neanderthals roamed widely throughout europe. We know this because they left behind. Extensive evidence usually bones or tools but their cousins. The denisovans our more mysterious until recently they were conclusively linked only to a single cave in southern siberia called denisova cave which lies between kazakhstan and mongolia in that cave. Scientists had found a finger bone three teeth and piece of skull which tip them off to the existence of a whole new lineage of ancient human now scientists have uncovered more of the range for the denisovans says de endo mossy lonnie of the max planck institute in germany. His team turned up evidence. The ancient humans occupied a high mountain cave on the tibetan plateau. Called by shia cave belongs to monks and -mongst things that it's a very holy place in fact among found a piece of jawbone there in nineteen eighty which has been tenuously linked to the denisovans salani and his team have now unearthed more conclusive evidence by sifting through cave sediments and sequencing the genetic evidence. The denisovans left behind. Buddy decay of people chests. Gabbing down the side like bleeding. There are coping ping could left their dna. The dna appears in layers suggesting the denisovans inhabited the cave as far back as one hundred thousand years ago as well as at sixty thousand years ago and perhaps even as recently as forty five thousand years ago meaning. The denisovans might overlapped in this region with modern humans. The results appear in the journal. Science mossy lonnie says. This method could enable more denise in detective work to this like so many caves when we have evidence of human activity but we don't have opening remain so if he can exploit to sediment can actually start to track down in segment. The denisova dini denise evans live on today in the genomes of some modern day humans from the south pacific further. Genetic work like this might give scientists more clues where early homo sapiens. I met and mixed with the elusive denisovans.

The Other Big Apple
"Well i was kind of. I guess in inadvertent midwife that we at the at the fellowship that we did back in what year was two thousand thirteen although we agree time has ceased to have any meaning. And that is michael pollen of michael palin fame. He is indeed the advert midwife of guest or pod. Because nikki and i were together at uc berkeley that year in two thousand thirteen out of fellowship. Run by michael. That's how we met. And you discovered your shared love of science slash food. yeah it's one of the happier offspring of that fellowship. Obviously if you're into the stories behind food and farming as we both are michael's writing is pretty much at the top of your list. We've wanted to have him on the show for ever and this episode was the perfect excuse to revisit one of our favourite of his books. The botany of desire in the botany of desire michael traces the stories of four plants and their intimate relationships with humans. One of those plans is the apple tree. And i don't know about you. But when i think of apple trees the first person is of is johnny appleseed. This is a very american thing to think of. I'd never heard of until. I moved here so for our non american listeners. This is what americans are thinking of when they think of johnny appleseed well they would probably have the walt disney image johnny appleseed which is of this you know barefoot guy on the frontier bringing goodwill sweetness to people when people hear johnny appleseed. It's it's very wholesome. It's very Uncontroversial he's a disney character right very soft. But actually the the real. Johnny appleseed and i use that word advisedly because there's so much we don't know about him is much more interesting in his book. Michael traces janis path planting apples across the us. And we're going to do the same here but i. There weren't actually apple's growing here. Before europeans arrived there crab apples that were here in the sixteen hundreds but native people did not have sweet apples. This is amy traverse. Oh she's the author of the apple lovers cookbook and senior editor at yankee magazine. So apple's are we think of apples as this american fruit and american as apple pie and we identify closely with apples americans but it turns out. They're not they're from kazakhstan around town called alma mata which means father of the apple. I'ma autism now called amati and it's the largest city in kazakhstan. I've never been there but if you go. Apparently you will see whole forests of apple's fifty foot tall apple trees. Apple's coming up in the cracks of the sidewalks. It's like a weed there and these apple's most of them look nothing like our image of the apple. I mean there's some the size of there's there's big brown ones there's just this incredible range and they're apple trees that are kind of prostrate and grow along the ground and ones that grow vertically ones that have canopies. I mean it's just incredible diversity but a lot of apples weren't particularly sweet or delicious. At least not to humans. They were dry and hard so did survive the drop to the ground and often the flesh was kind of bitter acidic and tannock because these chemicals were preservatives that would also help to fight up worms and insects and that was all useful because the apples needed to be eaten by bears to spread their seeds. And if you would like to hear what the delight of a group of bear cubs that has just come across the pile of fallen apples. Sounds like which of course you would you need to be on our special supporters mailing list gastropod dot com slash support bears. Yes there are a lot of bears and kazahstan. They love apples but like humans they also prefer sweeter ones and larger ones and even retro ones. These big red sweet apples sometimes appeared in all the different ones that grew wild and bears chose those and help spread their seeds and so the bears hopes for just the kind of apple's that we wanted the large sweet red ones and so then people who tasted these bear approved. Apple's turned into apple fans to and not just the locals because that area of kazakhstan was right in the middle of the silk road. An incredibly important trading route that stretched all the way from china to europe magin stumbling across. I mean you're living in a world with no sugar ray or at least it's a very rare. That kind of sweetness is extremely rare and very fleeting and you stumble across a forest where you find these fruits that are sweet and that actually keep well. I mean not a lot of fruits that you might find in that same forest like apricots will rot very quickly whereas an apple would last for weeks or maybe months and so people would pocket them and bring them to the next trading ports or the next trading town and they really spread that way and they flourished wherever they spread. because apple's have a couple of botanical superpowers. Apples are unique in that they easily enter. Breed with the native crab will species of whatever region. They end up in. And so those crab apples within s- place in the genes that allowed to survive in their climate. So that's super useful. Those local crab apples had jeans. That would be perfectly suited to the local environment.
Kazakhstan uses Borat's "very nice" catchphrase in tourism ad
"Kazahstan never been thrilled with four ad because makes them look like some backwards Third World Nation but they have finally embraced it putting Baratz catchphrase very nice in their doors. Are.

"I guys. Yes. Couple of Baratz here to talk to Amanda and I about one of the one of the movie moments of the year really in in a way and I'm fascinated to talk to you both about it because you guys on your show regularly cover the intersection of culture and politics. That's something that Borat is very focused on. I'm just going to read the full title of this film for the listeners out there. In case they didn't get a chance to check it out. It's called Borat subsequent movie film delivery of prodigious bribe to American regime for make. Benefit. For make benefit once glorious nation of Kazakhstan, I could hardly get through that I wanted to ask you both to start when you saw that Sasha Baron Cohen was returning as. Borat in a in a film, a movie film had, what did you think? Did you think we needed this Brian? Why don't you start us off Of course we need it. Of course, we need it because. The people that Borat likes to have Mary Fun with are now running the country. As opposed to fifteen years ago where they were having a little meeting often some holiday inn somewhere in America. So. We need it more than ever I. Think. David, what about you? Well. I mean to take from O'Brien. Said I mean a lot of people may have made the argument that they're sort of like no comedy in the age of trump right? That like that we that reality is pushed has gone too far and and you know comedies we know it is impossible I mean. I don't think it was an accident that trump was literally a Sasha Baron Cohen character in this movie because trump is metaphorically as Barron coin character from fifteen years ago right? It almost. I I will say when you read the title. Chuckled and there's a point about like halfway through the subtitle. The laugh actually kicks in at first. You're kind of like over here again, and then you're like, okay, they're just GONNA like they're gonNA. Wear me down and I think there was a lot to the movie to me. That I don't like it warm down but it was like I I was skeptical of it at first because I felt like already knew the joke and but but it was comfortable and it was really funny at times there were times where it sort of fell flat but but going back to what I said the. The beginning of this ramble. On when it fell flat, seem like that's when it was like it was like inversely making its own point that there's no joke to tell. You know it was it was a very surreal viewing experience. Amanda do you think that we needed Borat to did you need to? That's the question is it isn't it who needs it and who is receiving it because I grew Brian like we need it in the sense that we are living in the joke now, and we are maybe not living in what Borat Rot. Borat kind of pointed out, and then in a way gave power to and obviously the the media nature of of Borat and the figures who are inborn add is something that Brian and David can speak about at length, but it's really turned on itself and inverted. So many times from two, thousand, six to two, thousand, six correct to two, thousand and twenty that. You can't tell which way is up and that's really interesting, but there's A. It's a bummer to talk about like intention in comedy and effectiveness comedy but I think the way this was framed and when this was released, we're going to have to talk about it a bit and I don't know whether it sticks the landing that it's trying to.
