So what a way to start the fall? Oh, this is incredible. I'm glad to be a guest I am a fan of your work. In addition to just enjoying the book itself, I'm a fan of what you've been able to accomplish with well red black girl particularly in the way of used the platform of of a literary network to intentionally highlight narratives that are often ignored or ones that disappear from her collective consciousness as to African descended womanhood, the beauty and diversity of our voices experiences I enjoy speaking to people like yourself and I often wonder how is this person get here? What was their journey like? Why do they do what they do? So you ready to get into it? Yes, I am. Act One call to adventure. As a writer entrepreneur, of course, there are paths that we take and processes that we engage in to get us to where we are today, and sometimes we do that. Emotionally, we have spiritual processes, intellectual ones, and so on. How did you become interested in doing the work you do today? Well, it was a long and Berry unexpected journey and I think it really started for me at Howard University by alumni really supported me feel seen in loves and space where black women aren't always valued our university boosted lifted me up. So it was there that I countered Zora Neil hurston and Tony Morrison and my Angelo, all incredible authors that allowed me to see myself more clear in allowed needs to really start to think about who I wasn't the world in the work that I wanted to do, and originally I majored in journalism and I minored in geology and I was always surrounded by just incredible people that motivated me whether it's my professors my best friends I just always had a beautiful reflection to someone saving mealy you can do this and whether it was reading pursuing journalism, I, always find courage is supported and I think that's the main takeaway from my spirit's is becoming not. Yet or do serve the festival and so many other names. It's having a support system being passionate and being able to identify what your vision is. Jahns I've been able to say without a doubt that my purpose to really be of service to other black women and help uplift them in a leary space yawns I gained so much joy from that. I didn't know that was what I was going to be doing when I was a freshman in college, but it just organically happened as I started pursuing my career. Network in meeting other people it just services evolved this beautiful way. So years later, we well red black girl but I know that seed was planted on campus our university I, like fat because and maybe this is just my own personal perspective of going to a Pwi a predominantly white institution that it's not to say that you don't have professors that encourage and cultivate you your skills, your interest but I wonder if if it's something about going to an HP, see you that it's like Hashtag black excellence all around and then you. Just really entrenched in that moment of Oh, you dig Tony Morrison to, and it's not like we have one week where we covered Tony Morrison then that's it. No, it's extends like it's like the whole life cycle like I think back when I was a freshman I taught at a school that was called the Maya Angelou Public Charter school and I don't think I could have done that anywhere else but in DC as a student at Howard University and those moments gave me again the sense of purpose of helping. Other children and working in space with other black students and working with black professors just around we twenty four, seven that I didn't have I didn't have a chance to second-guessed took away. Any doubt I had when I was at a randomly whites all as a high school student and then when I graduated I, just have the sense of I mean in.

Pence Accepts GOP Nomination While Praising Trump, Slamming Biden

"Vice President Mike Pence's is turned to speak on the third night of the GOP convention as we talked about last night on the show law and order has been a central theme for the campaign pence hit that hard as expected, and also embraced the traditional vp duties of praising the boss and attacking the Challenger. The WSJ's John McCormack gives us the key takeaways big. Speaker of course was vice president pants I. Mean He really delivered pretty strong speech making the case that while president trump has been a colorful figure in an opinionated figure in the White House at, he's actually managed to get some things done and pence went through a long litany of what this administration views. Its accomplishments I've had the privilege to work closely with our present. I've seen him when the cameras are off. Americans see president trump in lots of different ways. But there's no. Doubt. How President Trump sees America. He sees America, for what it is. A nation that has done more good in this world than any other. A nation that deserves far more gratitude than grievance. And if you want a president. Who Falls silent when our heritage is demeaned or insulted he's not your man. He also tried to present Joe Biden as a real tool of the left calling Trojan horse at one point. That's a that's a phrase that the trump campaign is used extensively and they really want to try to present Biden somebody who? Hasn't fought back against what they call. The radical left is more liberal than. The Biden campaign would care to let on Joe Biden would double down on the very policies that are leading. To violence in America's cities. The hard truth is. You won't be safe in Joe. Biden's America. And under president trump. We will always stand with those who stand on the thin Blue Line and we're not going to de-fund police not now not ever. We also heard from outgoing presidential adviser, Kellyanne, Conway she and other female speakers from the White House defended the president's treatment of women arguing that he supported their careers tonight president trump will give his big speech. You can stream it live on wsj.com. Noticeably missing from this convention, some of the highest profile elected officials from past and present. It's a reflection of sweeping change in the Republican Party under president trump for more on the shifting identity of the GOP joined by White House reporter Alex Leary Alex, great to talk to You my pleasure. Alex the convention seems like a good place to start because symbolically, we're not seeing people like George W Bush or Mitt Romney give a speech how his president trump shape the party during his four years. Yes. This is one hundred percent trump's party. At the moment he is shaped at very much in his own mold. For example, on foreign policy on trade and other issues it is now the trump version of the GOP versus those past figures that you mentioned and from a message standpoint how has he changed the party identity and platform? It's a lot more populous. It's a lot more focused on the average person of spoke to Lindsey Graham for our story who said that the GOP and Mitt Romney, the twenty twelve nominee sort of resembled the country club set the swirling banker next door. President trump has made it much more of a working class focus with his populist policies. And how has he done that? Is it through his social media is it through his television appearances? How has he made that maneuver? He started through all that he's a very dominant interesting figure that has captured the imagination of people. Both critics and fans alike and president trump knows how to use the system to his advantage and to get his voice out there it all comes down to the base. The people who elected him That is the strength of of how you get elected and. People lawmakers, etc. No. That and if they wanted you know if they WANNA stay in office they're going to have to adhere to that message into to the party base. Let's look ahead to the future just a little bit. If we see a second term will the Republican Party stay status quo or is more chain evitable I think there will more change is Inevitable, the president trump will continue to put his stamp on things. For example, he is increasingly used a lot of executive order really stressing the the powers of his office, which is something that Republicans in the past had sort of been wary of. We'd see things like that. We probably see more protectionist prayed trade policies and maybe even more of a withdrawal. Of the US from the world stage on foreign policy art. Let's talk about another scenario. If the Democrats win the White House will this inevitably be a time of self reflection for the Republicans and who they are moving forward or will the trump legacy has some stained power? It'll have staying power because of the base that we mentioned that you know the. Voting the voting blocks or very trump centric, and that's not going to change overnight but there will be a debate within the party about some of the past policies such as foreign policy trade in which way to go perhaps some figures WANNA. Go back to the way they were So yes, the there will be a debate and it could get pretty ugly.

Unemployment benefits vary wildly in this country

"I'm sorry to report. It was more talk but no action again today in Washington has roughly thirty million began to face their economic futures out an additional six hundred dollars a week in federal unemployment benefits until and unless Congress, Hammer out a deal for more pandemic relief most jobless people will have to rely on state unemployment insurance and as marketplace's Kristen Schwab explains when it comes to state benefits geography just maybe destiny. If. You're unemployed in Mississippi. Your Life could start to feel a lot different than if you were unemployed in Massachusetts, the maximum benefit in Mississippi is around two hundred and thirty dollars a week in Massachusetts. It's over eight hundred dollars and the gap isn't just about cost of living big differences. The philosophy is unemployment something that supports labor market or is it a business cost be minimized? Chris leary with the Upjohn Institute for Employment Research. There is no federal standard for unemployment benefits. So states create their own rules around who qualifies how much they. Get and for how long Michelle Evermore is with the national employment. Law Project in some states like Florida north. Carolina. Only about ten percent of people who are unemployed or even able to get a benefit that impacts people's access to food and shelter during pandemic. It also dramatically increases their risk of getting sick because of monetary concerns they have to take an unsafe job and that's GonNa actually spread the virus in slow the recovery even further she says black and Latino workers may suffer most because with the smallest benefits have the biggest minority populations. And Sylvia Grow Labor economist at UC Berkley says differences it benefits can have direct effects on a states. Economic Health unemployment benefits have A. Really, important affect of propping up the greater economy well, that extra six hundred dollars meant a lot to workers who lost their jobs. It also meant a lot to all the businesses relying on people who were spending it.

Actually, maybe it might not have been then, but I believe I mean yeah, it's.

He looks like a guy who has been taking acid all the time. who had to put on a suit? He just a little crazy. He admitted to taking acid over three thousand times, and when asked to describe the effects of LSD. Quote you might say I was sitting there and I began to dissolve every cell in my body began to break down I was afraid I would become a puddle on the floor, then I saw a huge serpent coming up, and the serpent swallowed me I went into the serpent stomach, and later excreted, and I exploded and quote, so that's in front of a Senate panel.

I did a bunch of research on this, and there's tons of breakthroughs and these what you're seeing is a culture of people who want to expand their minds because they're. They're so bored by what the society off like. He doesn't say anything like that. He's like no for sure. You gotta be careful. You gotTA legislated it. You know like he's just not pushing back.

"The penis is hugged Well and it's partially. It's also partially that it's summer, so they're just there for the summers. They do have to go back to Harvard, right. At this bodies all over the place in some Mexico have created your own fake news or you may as well go to. Head over to am. It's also a hilarious thing to say. In with the current save I. Don't go ahead. So Harvard began to monitor Dick and Tim right so rumors of them recreationally taking the drugs with students started to swirl faculty heard the Tim like outside of the research faculty had heard that Tim had been telling some. Student assistance if they weren't willing to try the drug. Maybe they weren't open to doing this line of work. After all you know so well. He's he's way. Potentially, yes, but it's so early in the process that you know Harvard is like. Hey, don't force kids to take your pills, dude. I would say after the first time that he tricked. It is no longer early in the process. After after the bike ride say we're past that that was the that was the stargate. But. It's other stuff, too. Also complicating the situation was Dick's decision to take pills with an Undergrad, and which again was not allowed so on February twentieth nineteen, sixty two. The Harvard Crimson broke the story about all this. That kind of opened the debate on campus and then in in March they called. A meeting with Dick and and a bunch of the faculty, and the students were allowed to come. and. They just kept insisting that LSD. Was Pretty imperative that their work was justified and Tim's being charming. The whole time dick explain that. When he gave it to this Undergrad, he gave it to him as a friend, not as a teacher. For some reason that wasn't good enough. They didn't win crack. Look Man, this student is my. Rent. Copying no, it wasn't a cop. Then I was gay. Dude so so yes, so that excuse didn't fly. And the Crimson article accelerated the crisis, because local newspaper started writing about it and the New York Times picked up the article so now most people in America have not heard of anything like this. And now they're just reading about like kids. Taking a Lusa at at Harvard and no one was really sure what the Hell Tim leary was doing anymore. This Huxley succinctly put it by saying quote. I'm very fond of Tim, but while wide is he have to be such an ASS and. So, all the guys spread the party around everyone. Now now and now this one America is just a party. bummer where someone's having fun. And we got fuck it all up well good Lord I mean. If if we're party, bummer here, I mean. We've become Newark's.

"Yeah they would just what's going on what's going on with the guys making those drugs? What's going on in that lab? Well, what's the party like well? Okay, so so leery and Dick had learned of LSD's effect when it was given to them by this British researcher, but Tim was hesitant to try them at first now they already felt like they were kind of under pressure at the school because they're kind of watching them and they know they're Harvard's not happy plus LSD already had a bad reputation as it was used for the CIA and the CIA program the K. Ultra project, but that's another dollar for another day David. Tim Tried LSD for the first time. And after it, he didn't speak up. He didn't speak for five days. So, he takes. Doesn't speak for five days, but then as soon as he starts speaking, he gives it the green light and he's like. Yes, we should be using this. Now Acid David let's talk about asset. Okay, yes. A one lysergic acid diethylamide had been around for a while. Decade earlier in one, thousand, nine, hundred, thirty, six, a young lab tech named Albert. First synthesized LSD while he was working at Sandisk, there's that name again. So he works at Santos and what he's doing is he's studying a Ri-, fungus called air got which could cause convulsions, fever hallucinations kill thousands of people wiping out whole towns over history. There's tons of examples of it. We've actually we've actually disgusted previously on his podcast. What did we discuss it? In Reference Group, yes, so it came up during the last one. I had here to Norway. So a lot of the witches, of Norway were actually just people were poisoned by that, and then they started Jeb Reagan, talking crazy stuff that people like which and it's like. A person just had a little poison and it would it would vary it. When I was reading. It would vary like some people would have like really bad convulsions, but then other they would go to towns, and like people just be naked and dancing, and they'd be like Oh my God. Yes, it's one hundred percent all over the place. Sometimes you're Lindane. Anthony's fire. They say with us by air and all that stuff. So yeah, so so so he's working on that off of this right tripping stuff so naturally Albert made a few different compounds. And he made a few different lysergic acid compounds, and on his twenty fifth and final attempt he had made LSD twenty-five, but nobody cared, so it sat on a shelf for five years. Yeah, nobody gives a shit..

Iq Daniel has written extensively on the connections between human psychology science and contemplative practice and their practical applications in both leadership and in everyday life in this conversation. Daniel talks about his early years at Harvard where he earned his PhD in psychology and how encounters with great teachers such as Ramdas took Kunar remedy and many others would pave the way for his research on meditation and Non Western theories of mind unlike he studies in psychology which largely focused on the content of the mind. By-pass enough focused on the process. Which was tremendously exciting Daniel. He then discusses how mindfulness and meditation topics not will receive. Graduate advises have evolved within the United States and within American culture most profoundly. Daniel discusses his most recent work on climate change. He off is extraordinarily astute insights on how the human mind grapples with the difference between imminent verses symbolic threats and how these translates into the world of capital consumerism and personal responsibility he also shares his thoughts on how Donald Practitioners My contrbute to these calls. Especially I so much enjoyed this conversation and I hope you do too so I thought to start with awesome you so. You're a graduate student at Harvard and went to. India is that is that rushing seventy might travelling companions on the trip. Were someone known as Jeff. Cable? Who's called Krishna? Dos The devotional singer. Another friend was released for DOS. Who just lose writing books with Rhonda's because I had met Ramdas quite by accident cosmic what you would say tender auspicious coincidence or something but My Freshman Freshman Trish during graduate school. I was writing a paper suicide over the Christmas. Oh holiday and I get a knock on the door of my apartment in Cambridge in. It's a woman why never seen before. And she had run into a friend of mine who had been in a communal house in Berkeley. Who's going around the world? And he had sent a letter to me that she was the currier four and she had been in a monastery in Nepal where she met a an American. A guy named Bongolan not rundown. Yes and basically she. I have two things to do here. One is delivered this letter to you. The second is to visit this guy. The BAGUA DOS it. I really shouldn't need and the third was to go to my sister's wedding but she backed out and so that was why she came to America. So I said well I'll take you to meet this person you know. Your Christmas is writing on suicide. We ended up driving up to New Hampshire in there in this farm house. Luxuriance funhouse in a small room. Upstairs was this guy all white along there but no Julia was and he had all these weird pictures on the wall turned out to be Hindu deities and we watching remit and nobody said anything. I never been in a social situation where nobody said anything but I went along with it. And then after a while he spoke and it turned out he was Richard Alpert now. Rhonda's just come back from India and it turned out also that he had been fired from the program at Harvard that I was enrolled in a graduate student. Also I was on the graduates to school colloquium committee which meant I could invite him to come back and speak. Nice which I which was the first time he'd been back to Harvard since he was fired. And so you know he was on fire. He was really full of shocked as they say just back from India and he started. He came give a lecture started. Seven ended it too and to bribe janitor lettuce sticky two. Am to work. And I began to go to a kind of a summer camp that he was running his father's place in the Hampshire where I visited him. This was in the summer and after two rounds I found out that might fill ship to harbored included. A traveling challenge ship nice and I had a wonderful mentor at Harvard David McClellan who actually had hired fired leary and so what did he think about your little excursions to bomb. While he was a devout quaker and he was very interested in meditation so it seems glad that I was getting into this because none of it all is other graduate students. Were like all its study the need to achieve from the you know also you riding on suicide just WanNa go back to that in. What was was there any in that compelled you to write. Oh I had been at a teaching assistant in a course on death and dying talk. Guinan and I had gotten access to about several hundred suicide notes for Bailey Corner. Yeah and you know it's just a you know you study stuff in doubt. I mean I wasn't suicidal. But yet you had interesting death and dying or was that interested. Dr. Not like a personal interest but kind of academic academic India okay and so I should give it back on. My father was professor humanities and my mother was a social worker and I think I got a a kind of implicit value system. It was a very ecumenical. He taught a course called autobiography of civilization which was world literature so it a very lot instead of Sanskrit actually version Among other languages his best friend was the guy who founded the Asian Studies Department at Berkeley? No so I had this kind of view of the world which was larger than just Western yesterday so I was very interested in going to India but I found could In graduate school because Ron dos made me think oh I'd love to meet his guru yet girly Bob Him. You Know No. I'd never met anyone like him of the KARMAPA sixteenth city. Zuma Sitter Sixteenth Mama's yeah and They meant didn't see each other enough. Say met but Lama nor law whose retreat master for College Berries who was close to carmont stayed within croly Baba for two years and I think maybe he told them I never got the story of how he knew anything again. But anyway and Because this was nineteen seventy s very early. A lot of the wonderful lauman's the very shall we say far advanced llamas on the path from Tibet were still alive and Christopher Dawson and I met coup Air Fiche who is very humble. Wonderful being reviewed seem around dawn. You know mumbling all money. I when I saw going around the Stupa and people come and see him day and night and he was always happy to see. Whoever came which I contrasted with my professors at Harvard were world famous psychologist. You could see them like two to three on Tuesday office hours so anyway. Long Story Short coup. Who was wonderful and I didn't know till decades later with he was the teacher of the Dalai Lama on Compassion Chari out the time. You would certainly never say so. He had been offered the kind of the presidential suite with top sweet. And the monastery top floor didn't want he stayed in a very small room had little wooden bed. That was it was very simple. It beautiful way so I met him and kind of made it my business to look around I. I ended up studying the Pasta with Joseph Goldstein. Who was in residence of the Burmese? Mahara I think. Joseph was little horrified that other Westerners were showing up and Manindra had invited his friend going Kaji to give up his second course for Westerners and I went back and gave a talk at the conference on Yoga and Therapy Deli and told people there that there was going to be sub ten day retreat and when the people audience was named Sharon Salzberg cow and so she came to book Guy Learn how to meditate the rest is history was charged with Joseph of course so we go way way back to nineteen seventy really

Irish politics is about to change forever as old system collapses

"It is now two weeks. Since the elections in the Republic of Ireland created a seismic change in its politics with the end of a two party system which switch between finagle and final full and the emergence of a third powerful voice that of Shin Fain now Ireland's political parties are preparing for a week of talks to try to work out a deal on the formation of a new government. And as you would imagine it's hard work a little earlier I was joined by Namie. O'leary she's hosted the Irish passport podcast and Europe correspondent for the Irish Times. She began by explaining how much progress has been made since the elections. There's been an initial round of exploratory talks between the parties. We've had the first vote to try an attempt to pick T. Chuck and no one has been successful. So now it's moving onto the second stage This week they'll be more talks between the parties on the next time. We expect to have a vote in parliament On to try and elected Ishaq is march the fifth. Although it's not particularly expected that one will be a elected by that stage so the main thing that's changed since the election is that immediately after the election it appeared that fearful had opened the door to some kind of deal with Shit Sane. The left-wing Nationalist Party unexpectedly got the most number of first preference votes But last week they're quite acrimonious exchanges in the Dole between the leaders of those two parties. That made it quite clear that that wasn't an option that was on the table on this really leaves only one option left with the numbers that there are some sort of deal between the two traditionally dominant parties fearful fingernail. Chin Feng stay. They're still going to try and form a government to the left government of change and their plan to hold rallies around the country in in favor of that government But it's it's very unclear whether they have the numbers to do that so we are now in a situation. The way you've just described what I learned could be taken into absolutely different directions. Xinfei wanting one thing and the two old traditional party thinking if we get together we might be able to keep control in some way. Well it's very politically difficult situation for Phoenix. I'm fearful to manage because in a way there's no bod- option for champagne. So she would be delighted to get into government but equally if they can be the main opposition on they can cast the two old parties essentially two sides of the same coin. No difference between them and clubbing up to keep the might of power. That's also you know that's a good political narrative from their point of view note. That can help to kind of rally their base for next time on the other option of courses that we go to the polls again in another election. Although I don't think that's particularly likely on Xinfang could with hindsight run more candidates and perhaps do better than they did this time We we shouldn't expect any kind of resolution soon because the mats are quite complicated at this time given the result on if we look at the president of the last election it took seventy days time to to form a government and it could be even more complicated this time so we might not be looking at government until April. I'm just looking at the way things are going in. And the idea that shouldn't fain was approached and and now is being pushed out. How acceptable a situation will that be given as what you describe the popularity of Shin Fain in the elections and the changes it caused yes certainly Like I say it's a. It's a narrative that the party will say is them being excluded from power. They'll say that you know the old guard is coming up to preserve their hold on power and won't let them in But also from the point of view Finnegan and fina full they they. There are opposed. To should vein. I mean they. They don't want to simply hand them to keep the keys to government and also a lot of the same way so there's quite a lot of division particularly within fall about whether the right thing to do is to to do a deal with champagne or to exclude them. That that's a split that runs right down through the Party and in the end me home. Martin seems to have taken the attitude that the best option is to exclude them But it's a it's a tricky one for them. They're in a difficult political decision. How happy will voters be though? However if this seismic change isn't actually reflected in the way that the governments are made up. It's a tricky one. I think what Finnegan unfruitful are. Perhaps counting on is that as the weeks go by there will be more of a Desire for stability especially as the brexit negotiations become more pressing. Because that's going to become an issue this week. When the European Union is due to agree they're negotiating guidelines for the next stage of tokes which has massive implications for Arden. It can really make or break the Irish economy so the more in state unstable. Thanks get on the International Scene. I think On funeral are perhaps wondering whether overtime Irish voters might say. It might not be such a bad thing to have a stable experience government in place that was naming leary hosted the Irish passport podcast in Europe correspondent for the Irish time.

"And America the attic Kyrie Leary story but what about the lyrics we don't miss here and yet do not understand for instance I wrote a song with my fellow punch brothers called don't get married without me that goes like this your just go down and someone came up to me once at a festival and said Hey is a song about the Titanic because brother thinks it is and I need you to tell me it's not so I can tell him he's wrong no I confess but as the lyricist of that song I've never thought of it as being about the Titanic but rather about a similarly doomed relationship of mine however as I was about to express that to this person I realized that nothing in the lyric of don't get married without me specifically precludes it from being at least set on board the Titanic and who am I to aid in the killing of someone else's vibe human beings are to lyrics as yeast is to whine okay agents of fermentation if the song is yellow and your Blue the song's gonna look green if your brother is red it's gonna look orange so it is about the Titanic it's about perspective whatever I knew he was wrong there's always room for doubt between what we say and what someone here's a good thing to ponder as we hurtle towards Valentine's day which brings us to our brand spanking new song of the week circular mistake and if it sounds you like it might have been inspired by a conversation between two lovers that's totally cool with me it's really about the Titanic.

We'll be talking later about Lydia lunch launch and featured writer Darrell easily. But let's start with the main reason we've asked you'd to enter the world's back pages cover they tell. Tell us a little bit of wells February. This year is the fiftieth. I Love David. Mine cruisers loft passes you playing in New York at the fiftieth anniversary of the music. Yes yeah would it be fed cycling. The you are sort of Dave Matthews representative on. I think that's a few days few people I think one thing. That's very important to say about the Loft and David is is that he didn't think the party was even just about him And it's really about a sense of community. I am one of the caretakers Roy. And that's how he would speak. Speak to me about it and then meet considered himself a caretaker of the loft. I mean it was very much she said like the loft is a given name. I should back up because he I started doing parties in his own. Home at six forty seven Broadway picture phone. Google Street still fibrous building. Think he started throwing informal party in one thousand nine hundred sixty eight years that I was born and he didn't really make them into proper weekly party. He is with a contribution until February fourteenth nineteen seventy and he called it. A love saves the day but then the law was given name because it was a law. People are you're going. Hey going over there to that. Law became the name of the Party. Yeah well let's go. I will go by. When did you first when you start really getting the music? When did you start? DJ -ING Myself. One thousand nine hundred eighty two when I was fourteen. Wow I had A. I was quite lucky. I had a radio station in my high school. Alive is ten watts got basically to the edges of my town. My small suburban New England towns where I was the only one that played music. That wasn't top forty already and that wasn't classic rock. Although we did have one Christian music special not my show and I had a radio show for four years so the first year I was actually playing fifties and sixties speak. Because I was really into that. I was reading my uncle's record collection at the time and I had grown up. My parents didn't listen to a lot of music music at home but when we listen to music in the car and a Sunday drive we listen to people like Wolfman Jack still had a syndicated radio show and another one was already woo Ginsburg art show and she was all like the all those oldies and I just knew them inside and out and then my uncle lived if down the street from me and I used to raid his record collection. Because I I was given A. Ge Trim Line Record Player portable record player. Hand me down when I was about twelve. And that's when I really started getting properly into albums. The first one was Moody Blues Days of Future Past. That was my first obsession. Actually there's a proper album album. That's twelve the following year but my first year in high school freshman year. I had that old show the next year I started to more expensive. Expansive kind of new wave shows GALVEZ Castillo. Lot of Elena lavish fifty. Two's a little bit hard core stuff do that. It was kind of coming out really into black flag and the evanger all sorts of like the T. scene and then the following year. I had a show my friend. Mary crusoe called PUNK FUNK and junk. And that's where the name Cosmo was born because she became remix remix and I came cozma because there was a bound electro bound call nucleus and they had their. Dj was 'cause Moan. It's yell. Cosmo Gimme a beat. We we had sweatshirts that we may with our names on the back. We rock around arguing. Glenn High School you know no one else really was into that music and and then my final year. I had a show called strawberry alarm clock because I was still into sixty stuff. There was the whole kind of Paisley popping that was going on and I was working at a record shop. It was this chain store at that time called strawberries and because I had a show in the morning I worked at strawberries. Strawberry alarm clock and that was very eclectic. Six show pickup from a strawberry alarm clock to Chardonnay to black flag. To I mean it was just whatever my found was so yeah. I think I'll all ten listeners. Left at ease from the to some discussions Our B let's pick trajectory. I mean having said got my first GIG that I went to was the funk. FESTS and Providence Rhode Island's gap one way grandmaster Melle and bark as it was also going to few kind of Electrobi- clubs and Roxbury like my mom knows this mom. If you're listening to before center later I was into of course prince you know and slept out for tickets for the purple rain tour later. The cleaners tonight on Worcester Massachusetts so but luckily in Boston. Because I was outside Boston. We have great radio because we had college. Radio stations actually also brown station to Providence. Had a really good funk show and we had kissed one away with Sunny Joe White and so it was a commercial kind of I hate saying the word black music because I just don't think music has a color but I was going to do it for simplicity's sake right now and I used to listen to his show to. This is quite eclectic. I wouldn't say that wasn't the music. I was collecting and really it was quite a trajectory because I moved to New York Nine hundred eighty six eighty six okay and I went to Nyu and the reason I picked NYU's. I had to get out of Boston. It had the best college radio stations in the country. And I knew that's what I wanted and I knew that's where I wanted to be an somehow. We scrambled together loans and scholarships and got there. Because I was the first kid in my family to go to university. It wasn't expected to make sure and I went in the first week to. WNYC stations that high want to work work here and that they became my it was my family was my home intact and I ended up becoming program director and into the whole bunch of radio shows including the anchor show which was the new the afternoon. Show which is a three and a half hour drive time show where we played everything from like Nick Cave to the Belgian stuff. That was coming out of the cold ways stuff to you know to the four. AD cocteau twins Dunkin downs to everything so that was great. And then after that I produced syndicated radio shows I interviewed a lot of these bounds. Probably hundreds of pounds really that was syndicated to I think. Two hundred radio stations across country college radio stations. It was called Music View. And I even like you know a huge butthole surfers found at that time tall leary fifteen times and I. I mean Nick Cave loads of people I kind of and then all the Brit- British stuff too. Because I had always been an anglophile because growing up I was really into new order. J in addition in the Smith and seeing all these bounds of the cure fats down on stage. You want to dismiss legendary Gigs Boston so I was really and an anglophile as well. I was interviewing lows of bands like the verve and away Sis Anita all these bounds as well but I started going to save his. Party's we'll probably find Jim Sullivan's review of that show where she danced on the stage. And then I looked it up before because it was less. It's amazing one thing that's amazing. What the Internet is you can find? Old Settlers started listening to my first grateful dead show over and over last week. Some army onto a slight like March twenty second nine hundred eighty seven. The opening of the Spring Tour in Virginia Beach started listening to that. And you can find all track lists and I can find a photo the butthole surfers show the channel that I went. I mean it's amazing what you can find so. I did research and the smiths that that Smith's game was quite a big

It's a game show answer in the form of question staged the greatest of all time tournament and I think this is a case where the contestants really do live up up to that title. Brad Rutter the all time winningest contestant in jeopardy history Ken Jennings who blazed a trail of glory when they changed the rules to allow people to win for as long as they win and James Holes. How're all face off in an interestingly formatted and much harder version one of your favorite answer and question show joining me? Now are returning champions or a returning champion. Justin Peters who writes for slate he was well. I'll read you the headline of one of my favorite articles. He's ever written. I got a second chance on who wants to be a millionaire. Last year I became one of the biggest losers in gameshow history going back with terrifying. Justin knows gameshows. Hello Justin. It's me and Lizzie leary. Who is the host of of slates? podcast what next. TB An old friend of mine and a jeopardy contestant. Hello Lizzy Hello Mike. I'm jeopardy contestant into jeopardy real jeopardy honest to God civilian jeopardy tell me about your jeopardy nece I was on Washington power player jeopardy in two thousand twelve thing. I don't know if it's still living but it was a thing. It's like celebrity jeopardy but for politics and media people a- Ah so if Washington is like Hollywood for ugly people what's power play jeopardy jeopardy refer. I know you were on it. You're better looking than almost everyone else else. On jeopardy isn't on television aired on television. Yeah Yeah in twenty you play your opponents. I played against Chris. Matthews and Robert Gibbs now Chris Matthews doesn't like anyone else to get a word in edgewise. Did that affect gameplay. I mean I think it affected the banter with Alex and getting and Gibbs. He's a former White House. Press Secretary Presser because he's pretty smart smart smart guy. And how did your go. I want to be clear that going into final jeopardy. I was winning by a lot too. So I'm they're on the the measurements that matter. Yeah I was. I may not have the best bedding strategy. Fine did you get final jeopardy right we we all got it wrong. Oh Oh I had like a slightly more aggressive than Robert who liked bet very little dinky amount that might have been the best bedding strategy because you had to cover all in right and you just have to Eke past you. So in that case actually the person in second place will almost always have the advantage. I had to cover like what if he goes all in and gets to this point. Okay and just for like one real. I don't know horrible footnote. The answer her the question the question was who is Bill Cosby we all whiffed. Oh Wow yeah. What was the question? The you mean the answer. I don't know what this celebrity won an emmy. The Mark Twain Prize and the Spin Garn metal right updated today serving garden given by the end. Tapie we all look like a bunch of really clueless white people which we were well and if you updated for today and is now serving ten to thirty in Philadelphia Correctional Institution almost unfair. And just do you watch jeopardy all the time Yeah as much as I can that I'm a man who has not but yeah a little bit. Yeah you guys excited for this show so exciting. What about it is just such a good idea? I mean jeopardy occupies Very unique place in sort of Pantheon of game shows and it's champions more so than any other game show are sort of known. People know them James Wholesaler throughout the first pitch at Wrigley Field. Glass Year So it is just a cool idea to take the three quantifiably most most successful players in the show's history. Pit Him against each other. Yeah and also they do tournaments of champions at tournaments of all time champions and you could say it's like the rock band who keeps claiming claiming that there never touring again and then does but with Alex tra- back having pancreatic cancer. This is going to come to an end and sadly it's going to come to an end fairly early soon so when they say this is the greatest of all time champion. This is the greatest of all time. It is like they were all wearing purple. Ribbons is that for him. Yeah let's talk a little bit about Alex Trebek's I understand that he. I have critiqued him over the years. I think that especially in the QA in a sections. I mean let's unite. QNA's I mean he's a game show. Host is not an interviewer and he it comes across the he doesn't care with his to go to sentiments. which are good for you and I'm not going? There says that one a lot so yeah I understand like what he does is a skill skill and he's obviously good at it but the fact that he is battled cancer and came back from it. And there's this this whole outpouring of Love I. I think it's deserved. I can't I can't find fault in that jeopardy fans are loving and miss already missing al now not at all. I think it's okay. I'm good with

Martini celebrates the festive season with a limited-edition Negroni chocolate collection created by Paul A. Young

"The beloved Italian Coktail Negroni is one hundred years old this year and the Shuki pull a young has been asked by Martini to concoct brand new chocolate to mark the occasion. Well Uncles Ben. Ryland sat down with Paula. littler Elliot to talk about the creative and practical processes of marrying chocolate with such such a famous drink. Plus they enjoyed a little bit of tasting along the way I have the great privilege of being approached by fantastic brands And a half to love the brand and all I have to love the product that the brand of created and for me it has to be natural. Ashby pure and ask interesting. And I've known the Martini brand for for decades. I remember adverts in the nineteen eighties with a particular on roller skates. trae Martini and the any time any place. Any were to have a Martini so so it was. It was always a happy memory for me. So when they approach and said we've got these new reserve special and brought on Rubino for Moose my East pricked up because I'm not a beer drinker. Call volume alcohol drinker. Let one night champagne and spirits. But I like Negroni old-fashioned says bitter sweet flavors because you can have them over ice on their own stop blending them and for me. Obviously I have to blend into the chocolate. So the challenge for me was taking the two commutes on brought her which is a a number color and the Rabin which is this ruby color from youth and taste them dilute pair them with chocolate. Let's try and find a combination that celebrates negroni because the centenary celebration of Negroni without the chocolate distorting the flavors and characters in the botanical in the two Moose but also the vermouth are very complex. And they've got that distinct bitter sweetness to they can easily distort the chocolate as well so it was actually an opportunity for me to work with them on getting that balance. Absolutely right Let's take quite a long time. We always think about the delicacies Kasese that can go with a glass of wine for example. What it it's fairly common knowledge that certain foods should go with a glass of wine? Don't sit down to a lovely gloss of red wine and then and and then tuck into a box of chips not good idea that we often don't think about that same sort of methodology when it comes to pairing something something we chocolate. How do you know what goes well with chocolate? It's a really good question in two parts to it. When I when I first started in chocolate a quite few years I would be guilty? If you've ever analyzing and I think it it's the way some people take chocolate which is if you're doing it professionally or academically you do have to have a process of pinpointing and finding all of us delicate compounds flavors and tastes to the point where you're deciding whether this chocolate is fine. Quality with beans have been fermented well of picked well or and so on and so you really digging in Bolt for me when it comes down to it. I have to take it back to base level when I smell it smell texture to like the taste from beginning middle and end and Roy after the after taste does it work with ingredients and now you get people who will say what wine and chocolate hard to pair. I find it very easy to pair. That's because I've tasted a lot of chocolate and a lot of wine and I can think about those flavors starting out and you taste piece of chocolate. How would you know which one to pick their hundreds if not thousands of them on the shelf to boy Oy? It's really difficult and all I say is by and tastes and eat what you like. Try It if you think it doesn't work. You're probably right because you own your tongue on your taste spots. And if it pairs well great. An I have always with all my tastings and events set to people if you prefer eating or milk white or dark chocolate with a cup of tea fantastic few think it works for you. It probably does but when it comes down to do you like if you do great no matter what anybody else says because you a half to want to eat again and again and again I'm almost runner of the cadbury cream egg at with the woman dipping hurt chips into a cream egg. Yeah well salty and sweet is massive business. The chocolate industry tree lady is not as crazy as she looked. She has no But I I do have a box of beautiful chocolates in front of me and you just pulled me a gloss of the move which was very kind of you for this time of day. A little SIP exactly Tell me tell me first. What vermouth measuring? This has gone brought us. This is the amber colored very light fresh smell wise. I've got fruit and it has to me sympathy botanical. Medicinal that's not meant to be a negative Tiv- term. I remember as a child having buttercup Syrup as a medicine and Dundee Line serapis kind of things those botanical can pass over very successfully into a Moose yes and drinks and this has that element of bitter sweet to it which if you think about bittersweet flavor dark chocolate is bittersweet already got a really good foundation and having having having a taste It's light on the tongue but the aftertaste is really really long It's beautiful sweet as well. But not over not overpowering only switch cleverly made it very sweet not overly sweet at the beginning and then this kind of botanical bitter dryness comes in the end and the chocolate made with it is the blue and gold marbled finish which represents the best colors on the buttocks. It's a beautiful bottle. Ferry Italian design obviously and sticking with Martini brand absolutely. I think if you are familiar with the Martini a line of Vermouth e you probably would be impressed by this particular RESERVA SPATULA pull. Educate me on how I should be eating the chocolates with the truth. We've had a drink of Mussa. Still got the flavor. There have a bite of one of the chocolates list. It's the blue and gold when it has a very soft center of white chocolate. We've got some Bombay Sapphire Gin. We've the VERMOUTH in there. Got Some Madagascans chocolate. which is thought delicate fruity chocolate? And very little else the predominant ingredient in that is the vermouth because I wanted that flavor to to last on the tongue. And it's it's a gorgeous balance. The dark chocolate is just bitter sweet enough like the vermouth. Once you've had the first bite and it's melted and swallowed. I have a bit more. Vermouth just passed me. A A glass of Rabin now I suppose that means that well to be polite I would have to try some of this. You would have to try that one as well this array of full of flavor for me I get kind of a smell of time leaves and herb Leary is very very very smooth. A little a bit Rich in feeling flavor and that's represented in the chocolate as well. We've got that lovely Madagascar chocolate again. But they could nash the filling inside. I just heavier more full needs a bit more impact. Bit more strength to it. So it doesn't get lost in the Renault so now that we've had some of the redeem we should be tasting some of the chocolate or I'd have made the chocolates a half dome a very smooth surface and a dark chocolate can inside Very very different indeed this one. Yeah very dock inside and a much more pungent hit it take. It took a long time to find the right chocolates to work with the to the most because Kosta so complex for example. If you choose orange which I love chocolate and orange you instantly got. I honestly know which chocolate to put with it to get that nostalgic fail. I love chocolate orange. What this it was? Try again try again try again. It's absolutely fantastic. The opportunity to have something that is quite unusual all to work with both familiar. It's funny how I haven't had either the Vermouth to start with but the familiarity and some of the botanical in. I don't know where that's from. I'm from my many years past of tasting and eating but there is something in them and all my team who tried to. There's something in recognized but I don't know what it is. I think a lot of people might say I've I've never had vermouth on its own. I've had a Martini Shaken oster Martini or I've had it as a mix of had it in an aground. Have I had it with chocolate would would I tried it if it wasn't in the chocolate maybe not so my job and my responsibility is just to inspire people to try something different. Because that's what I've had the opportunity. It's due to create the chocolates. I think you've done very well. Thank you so much. That was really

Johnson's Suspension Of Parliament Was 'Unlawful,' U.K. Court Rules

"Support for NPR comes from James Madison University named for the man known as the father of the US constitution presenting the next Madison Vision Series Lecture on November fourth learn more at J. Dot Mu Slash Civic British Prime Minister Boris Johnson has lost big votes again and again in parliament and now he has suffered a huge defeat in court the UK Supreme Court has ruled against the prime minister. Let's remember Johnson suspended parliament for five weeks in what was seen seen as an effort to limit debate on Brexit. Will that is the act that the court has found to be illegal and let's bring. NPR's Frank Langfitt who is in the English seaside aside city of Brighton this morning frank. Hey Good Morning David. What exactly is the court saying here well if you remember. David Johnson argued that he needed this long extension so we could work on his legislative agenda but lady Brenda Hall. She was speaking for the eleven justices this morning and she said the suspension effectively prevented legislators from doing their job. This is the way that she put it. It had the effect of frustrating or preventing the ability of parliament want to carry out its constitutional functions without reasonable justification. Okay frank a big setback for the prime minister. I mean after a series as of setbacks in parliament now defeated in the courts date has not WanNa vote yet. So how is he is. He sounding still upbeat. Well it's interesting he is. He's going along with this. I don't think he has any choice. This was such a resounding verdict from the Supreme Court but he also says he's going to continue with this policy which the plan is we've been talking about is for Britain to leave the European Union on October thirty first one way or the other Johnson of course is in New York for the UN General Assembly meeting and a and here's what he had to say from New York. Obviously this is a but we will respect. We respect the judicial process. I have to say I strongly disagree with what the justices found I didn't think it's writes but we will go ahead and correspondent post-partum comeback. I think is a good case for getting with the Queen's speech anyway. We'll do that and David when he says the Queen's speech what he's talking talking about is he his legislative agenda which he is planned he's supposed to give on October fourteenth so he does plan to go through with that but House Speaker John Berko he he says that parliament will tomorrow and we'll see how they spend that time certainly we're gonNA probably hear a lot more criticism and scrutiny of Johnson's policies in in the days and weeks ahead and practically I mean what what does this mean for among other things specs it in this October thirty deadline politically this. This is yet another setback for Boris Johnson but I don't think you're going to see him back down at all. He's already said to his party. I'm going to do this do or die and he has. I don't think he has a lot of choice there. we are expecting a general election coming up in November or December and certainly Johnson knows that if he goes back on his word he could lose a lot of voters in his greatest fear. Most people who who followed his career his greatest fear would be actually not being able to stay as prime minister and and serving not a very long time well and that brings up the opposition the opposition leader Pro Labor Party and you're actually covering their convention right in in Britain I mean would they have had their own problems. As as this brexit process of been going they have had their own problems. David one thing is they've not been able to come up with a policy that is clear. They're kind of straddling the fence on this but I gotta say today this morning for Labor. This was a a big victory. They were euphoric very excited. Jeremy Corbyn the Labor leary came out on stage. He said this verdict showed that had contempt for democracy heat abused power and this. This is how corporate put it. I invite Boris Johnson in the historic words to consider his position. The become the shortest serving prime ministers have obeyed okay frank. Let's summarize British politics in turmoil and we have no idea what it happens in Brexit is that said about where we still are feels like. It's been that for more than eight years. David N._p._R.'s Frank Langfitt reporting this morning. Thanks so much have you David.

Your mind news the converse nuclear energy efficient material. I think that in the right hands scientific and disciplined co people in will bring about changes ages but for anyone to listen to broadcast to get any other message that I'm telling you stay away from them within the first base and ninety nine percent of the what's what's called the Israelis and ninety nine percent of the things said about totally lies fabrications and I don't think it's something to us now flatly maintenance David. You also said we'll pass that you're afraid of heroin ERLA personally. I don't like airman. Elliott downshifts escape trip and although I'm an escape artist to escape two nights not escaped from life I think that heroin addiction is like diabetes. Epilepsy certain people just physiologically and psychologically gladly. You're so wired up. They're going to be attracted to this escape and heroin addicts. There probably would be sixty era one hundred thousand if we'd kept the money thing could be handled by physical prescriptions by doctors. Just the way diabetes diabetics now use. If you passed a law against insulin immediately the price of insulin would go up there like the price of heroin and you'd have diabetics playing around robbing and stealing into that get their fix but for me. Her was not true. You're sitting here in prison on. What are you doing productively. What are you doing to keep yourself alert well. I have no trouble keeping myself alert. There's plenty to do here. Main thing I'm doing is taking advantage of this the opportunity to study society from this very interesting vantage point. I'm talking to prisoners listening to them. I'm doing some writing. I do about two hours of physical yoga every day. There's no problem this is this is what's happening as I said before microcosm and all the raw essence of Komo society here.

We're not going to get to bail and to keep you quiet now. I'm not complaining because I think I should have been shut up. I've been around the United States for ten years talking spreading my message and I think it's good in a public life to chance to lay back and the opposition to do as a matter of fact when I was arrested I was running for Governor in California publish position papers on how to gradually eliminate taxes out to eliminate crime out of eliminate the Drug Abuse Problem Serb-run laid back a couple years and see how will the the other side is going to do last January Afghanistan reckon government agents.

Do you think you've suffered any bring them in for forever. Am I. Insane because that's very tricky question answering I've lived through the thirties forties and the fifties and sixties anyone who's still erect after those years that had sanity tested checking two years old facing albums of dirty and getting older. I've been through my breath time few two years. My career's ruined took my credit card away at Harvard and I've been harassed by government pretty heavily I four persons without any crime I know solitary confinement for months and in addition to all of these he's pressures. I probably push my nervousness in as much as a human being I think on the strong it saves person around nothing any guarantees for the future but you know something ominous about this tendency to call anybody that you don't agree insane under years ago. They'd say we're possessed by the devil or you're inheriting go. They'd say communists now that really sophisticated titrate trait method now is to say that someone that is a dissenter against the society is insane in Russian up very smooth they take their two losses astor's poets and they don't put them inside anymore they put him out. Maybe it is insane to be against without being the United States today SINC- to try to have hope it can be done about it so that's insane. Count me in otherwise make up your own mind. I've been called irrepressible optimism now the opposite of an irrepressible oppressively after this is a repressive pessimist and I think that's running the country today. What do you think of your future. You think you're going to walk out of Prison Freeman women. I think my future is very interactive. Future this country. He just can't keep philosophers in prison. If I'm catching it's going to be a very bad asking for Freedom Union sitting during interview. I noticed the single on your shirt. What is that for a the interesting symbol for some of us. This is a replica of the remnants of living organism that was found in a meteorite. It came from the interstellar or extra planetary space. This is proof spit. Life exists somewhere off planet. Now we feel that this this is a first contact with higher intelligence or somewhere out there. There's there's another point of view and we've taken this as a symbol the new coq the last few that we're talking about sometime in the fall. We're going to see in the sky a meteorite. Have you heard about it. It was discovered by German airman. This bonhamer recall this light coming to our solar system. We see the day towns night. We call it star seeing and ties then with symbol that visitors on this earth. We're not going to be very long. We gotta get back in touch with a great picture and it's a symbol of unity unity. Hope I would like to replay a final comment. I think said pretty much what I say. A AH. We're going to keep broadcasting messages and be very glad to hear from anyone in the audience who liked to keep this dialogue going. My Joanna Larry's going to be going to college. Campuses and radio programs television programs two books that are published inside Vakil. You wanted back here. I think there aren't that many philosophies opponent freedom being broadcast so so let me try to shut me up you know the Hebrew broadcasts called from this country in the last few years many killed and it was a risky job but over anyway how was that for standing up to the man facing the possibility the of spending the rest of his life in prison leery still puts his finger in the establishment science says I'm here and I'm broadcasting well. This brings me to the next interview with Tim leary that I wanNA play for. You and this one took place nineteen years later sometime late nineteen ninety-two and well. It's my all time favorite interview with Dr Leary thought that playing it right after the one that we just heard would be interesting because it begins with the same question who is Timothy leary sorry but there's an added benefit with this interview over and above being able to see what changes may have taken place in leary's thinking over the intervening ears and that benefit is that the person conducting the interview is the one and only skippy low. He was a really well known television in personality in the L. A..

"leary" Discussed on Psychedelic Salon

"Greetings from Cyber Delic Space this is Lorenzo and I'm your host here in Psychedelic Salon and I'm going to begin today by passing along a little bad news and then some really good news the bad news. Is that my dear friend. Jacques Oliver had a serious heart attack last Friday night. The good news is survived and although he's in the hospital hospital he is recuperating and in good spirits while you may not recognize shocks name you should recognize his voice because well besides me breath jockettes. The only other person whose voice has been included in every podcast from here in the PSYCHEDELIC Salon you see Jock is the musician who has provided the theme song for the Salon and if you listen closely you can sometimes hear his voice ghosting over mine now some of jocks fringe may be hearing this here for the first time time and so I want to let you know that his heart attack also became a performance it happened at the imagine festival on Orcas island during the Friday night right set being performed by Jock and his band nature loves courage. I'll now pick up the rest of this story in Jackson words which I received yesterday okay in an email that he sent out from his hospital bed and I quote the final song of the set was Lazy by David Byrne. Final goes is like this hard man hard times hard keeping this all inside good times good. God so lazy. I almost stopped at which point my heart stopped causing me to collapse on the ground and quote in his email. Jacques describes what happened afterwards afterwards but the headlines are that trauma nurse came out of the audience and began giving him. CPR and within minutes the ORCAS fire rescue team were there with a defibrillator and after six jolts our dear friend Jacques came back to life within minutes he was in a helicopter and on his way to a hospital on the mainland and so my hat goes off to everyone involved in this excitement including Darren and the entire team of staff and volunteers who produce the festival estimable and we're prepared for emergencies like this well done all of you old so now that I can breathe a sigh of relief knowing that Jacques is Chinamen. Let's get on with today's program which I think you're going to find to be a lot of fun. If you've been with me here in the salon for a while you probably we remember that a few years back podcast somewhere around fifty or so recordings that were given to me by Timothy leary foundation and this was before his archive was placed place in the New York City Public Library well the other day. I was poking around in some of those old recordings the ones that I haven't played yet and I found to that I think you're going to enjoy and I'm GONNA play them back to back because well in a strange way they're connected the first recording was made in folsom prison back in nineteen in seventy three and that was after his previous escaped from prison and his adventures on the run a few months after this interview he was put in solitary confinement and and even house next to Charles Manson for a while he was serving a ninety year sentence but fortunately for him leary was released from prison in one thousand nine hundred ninety six six by Governor Jerry Brown of course at the time of the interview that we're about to listen to he assumed that he would be in prison for the rest of his life and yet as you'll hear he remained remarkably upbeat about life since we're going to be sitting here chatting paying for a little while I I think what I'd like to know. Is this man whereas the main Timothy Leary is Timothy leary as a person I'm a philosopher psychologist to has been studying nervous system for the last thirty years ears written ten books and hundreds of articles. I know as much more about this works. Galactic outpost awareness range of human experience and he signed his. You also have the perfect criminal well. Yes I'm in prison and that may see my philosopher prison but I have to say this about my profession. the best philosophers often end up in prison. If you're a good baseball player you end up in major league. You're really successful politician humid up watching those sorry to say if you're really a good philosophy coming out with new ideas about seven Greek destiny questions that are gonNA rattle the walls social institution most of the amend. I modeled myself after the lucky the got away just being imprisoned there as far as the general public's concerned and you probably best known for your views on drugs. When did you start working with them. Starting Doc nineteen sixty rule well for many years the for that as a psychologist and studying the nervous system knowing the nervous system is the key due to all human knowledge either looking for instruments to microscopes see how the mind works uh and in the nineteen sixties. I don't know very well. drugs came along as modes expanding like telescopes microscopes. The nervous system is a biochemical structure drugs fuels instant dislike tractors and jet engines expand vander muscles in our legs and that sort of thing to study in this system drugs act one of the major tooth. We're looking at it from a research you. Did you ever go away from that view every time that you worked with drugs. Were you looking at it. From Research. Well Lassiter is looking not just at the narrow research aspects aspects but for the implications great questions we come from where we going. We're on this planet Shiver Thousand Long Beach other how the US ends so that I've always been interested in finding ways using our nervous system as an instrument to answer the basic questions of life. I think any scientist really gets to the frontier of his science gets. The basic questions gets kind of mystical philosophic. It's inevitable and I've accepted that. I think we need at this time. A new philosophy run out of great navigational ideas are GonNa get the great ship moving in the right direction ten years ago. You have philosophy and hallucinogenic revolution. We really advocate it well. My main message is use your head specifically learn how to use your nervous system. It's for the last fifteen years. I've been studying nervous. I've gotten to use my nervous system the way low and hoke and the first man that got the microscope the Galileo. I guy that got the tell us it takes years to focus dial it in tune in. I know that the nervous system is a computer program in many different directions. it's like a series of motion picture or television cameras. We can focus it. Turn it around on different objects. It's like chronic electric and we can tune it there to be used and the challenge of the human race right now call up the neurological agents going into learn how to these are head. Are you headed your way. You haven't been accepted totally yet a head of es. I'm going to kind of time WARP UH definitely and the head of the question whether I may be off in the right direction and perhaps straight center movement of society following me these are the risks that the parasite is takes but I had the certain empirical experimental proof that I'm not entirely wrong because most everything that I said in nineteen sixty two music three my testimony before Senate committees about how we avoid driven this country in those days I was almost alone as a voice saying is going happen and wear don't let it happen and that was considered pretty. Radical saying marijuana should not be criminalized should be turned over to the government to be treated like fissionable fissionable material like an incessant years. Most of my prophecies have come true and then he very conservative organs like the American Medical Association Psychiatric Association the American Bar Says Even William Buckley the conservative writer and Television Star era. They're all coming around and positions that was considered radical espousing in the ninety six. I believe you said ten years ago. Go that you wanted to change the spiritual level of the United States and think of yourself as a as a drug Messiah back in those they started your own church. He doesn't ask me about drugs today. I wouldn't have brought up. I talked about the nervous system. I talk about how we can use. Our knowledge can make this country that have played. I talk about how to reduce crime that sort of thing I point out. You're the one question drugs now. I know I have to answer questions about drugs because I've been labelled as say in prison. That's my jacket but I really wanted to do with drugs and Einstein has to do with the bomb now now all the way through you never did ten years when I was lecturing you read my books less than ten percent. He broke. I've ever written and fifty percent of electricity is on drugs. Usually drug question came up in the question. The answer is absolutely now. Albert Einstein got that. They're going to have him or folsom prison. However is destiny let him and he began talking about the Equations Space Time and relativity theory. I know that there's a reporter or television. Nanfang Yeah Albert but what about the atomic bomb say yeah. It's true that there was a crazy mixed up. Kids Got Ahold of that atomic bomb base might theories blew up Nagasaki Hiroshima so I have to take the responsibility for both describes as being one part of the philosophy that I teach studying working. Are you seeing ten-year-old the news. Media just totally blew out of proportion what you're actually trying to achieve not advocate unless the and no. I never advocated drugs. I descended drugs. Uh Different drugs against unscientific charge of as soon as you start saying marijuana's not a killer drug become a an advocate uh in the people's mind yeah we as I look in the camera and realize that even going to be watching this program. I think it's safe to say that maybe a third or the audience Jimmy likes me. They think I'm a philosophy prison from ideas and they don't mean prison third. That really dislikes me. Thanks that I've led the young people stray. There's another third probably couldn't care less busy enough with your own lives my debate like this government. A concern years of almost everyone involved in the base. They don't really know what I'm saying. Very few people who are watching watching this program has written a book and we know how the media labels body labeled even like this. It's the great sensation game and it's very hard was laid line. The Way to win was various local government officials including crusher on because of the views of well. I I don't know how many Americans know this but I had the honour of the person started g Gordon Liddy on his media as much as anyone in this country. I put Midi hideout he was he was an assistant. Da A near Millbrook New York at a Scientific Center studying and Gordon was very ambitious now of course there are millions of people are going along on this trip and those days he was the first time that I was was harassed by the law on a Saturday night midnight I was in them bedroom with my wife and I was talking to my son and the door van Gogh and then came in g Gordon Liddy with twenty four armed and Buddhist sheriff's one was the I know marijuana. I was trying to out there. They did not have to skate the plant. We had an Peat Moss Draining Gordon ran for Congress on the basis that he had driven the county and from there he went to White House as a drug expert Outta Gordon Lydia drug experts because the Larry this she's been well-known testified to that was nineteen sixty six and since then I've been in continual. I know exactly how I system works posing bobbing at that. They tried it out of me before. Try Out and send him. I recall you recently filed suit with the help of some prisoners as a small business here were attempting to set up an education appropriate called probe they're Kinda get it authorized and they helped me a brief filed and written by GM Houseboat Nick we want to close the prisons because they set up conditioning of slavery involuntary servitude and the Grease spells out all we can deal with the prisoner problem without caging men in a way attitude of course very legally and with the cooperation of the prison guards ministration. Is something this for everybody one thing I see the United States and huma situation like nervous system. We're all in touch yeah. I think the problem has been that got to got to use technology to get into close communication so that everything we're doing here. Now is Negro. It's with the knowledge of the prison authorities. WanNa bring them in raise their salaries and give them happen sation adding to their problems. They're facing the crucial problem. Change Men's minds South Crohn's. We're not we're not against anyone certainly ten years ago. You were giving advice to people what advice to young people well. I've been off the air for here's an ad getting any fights yeah and letting people take over to see how good advice good the advice they could. That's my main advice for everyone is we've got to learn how to to use our heads got to realize that the nervous system can be used as an instrument to help. I understand why we're hearing where we're going. I think they've got to change. We like to see a United States moving into its third century with the same. Yesterday we had twenty years ago spirit novelty of something great imaginative free so that we have the pride Americans East appeal now assignment around since I've been back. I don't see that Nixon or the Democrats have a program is going to lead us into the third century with this bigger that we need win for crawler staggered..

"There's Something About Mary" Actor: W. Earl Brown Interview

"My next guest is one of the most talented diverse actors i've ever had on the show. Please welcome w earl brown to the show. He's one of the best actors on a plane. That's certainly one of my favorites earl house like treating it today. It's going pretty excellent. I'm gonna tell you right now. I'm gonna kiss your ass. We're here you have perhaps the funniest pin tweet i have ever read in my life and i'll for those of you that are listening. I will go through a really quick in my career. I've been killed twenty twenty eight times so far. I've killed over forty and i lost my baseball that pretty much sums it up. I mean i could not stop laughing that assist in half to say so. I'm reading some ear your tweets here before i get into your life a little bit one. I completely agree with your take on casting directors actors and how they should receive some type of recognition from the from the academy. I am so on board with you on that. That was the first thing i thought when i saw that david but rubin has been named president of the academy that that finally they should be able to get recognition because it's the only department in in all of l. making the only department head. There's a head of casting that there's no oscar recognition in the never has been <hes> and that that's that's wrong so hopefully it will okay so that's that's insane because i have to tell you earl the fact that i had jackie burch on the show. I want to see a year ago. I mean she was the backbone for those unbelievable unbelievable. John hughes movies early on. She's one of the best casting directors on the planet and people don't know that because they know that but there's no you're right. There's gotta be some type recognition for these people's great work. Yeah i'm on board and two more things before we get to your life. You're a huge kiss fan. Is that accurate well. I'm a huge music fan rights across the board. That's like a lot of live shows on but yes as as a kid one of the things that right around the time. I thought i technically cognizant thought that i want to be in movies. I was a ratted kiss fan. Yes <hes> um and then <hes> so <hes> yeah. I've i've gone through numerous times over. You must follow my tweets. I am i'm going on the kiss cruise. I've been invited in years past to go and i can finally do it. I finished production on the show. I'm working on right now. <hes> <hes> right about the time of the crew so that was like you know what i'm going to one of my one of my buddies musician buddies from nationals going with me because my wife has desire higher hispanic tomorrow night in charleston. South carolina is legitimate like crews career away for a couple of weeks. Is that how that work yet. It's a five day cruise. It's a music cruise. I've done it the outlaw country cruise which is x._m. Series <music> outlaw and they do it in conjunction with six men. Six men also produces. The kiss cruise routes on the same boat. It's the same everything that's how i've been invited it. 'cause i've gotten to know all those guys and they found that i was a kiss. Fan like me just spoke so i'm finally doing for me. The twenty five hundred trunking rolling all night darting in every day in the guest navy man gene gene gene simmons does not get enough credit. He's done some beautiful things with make a wish kids but that's another story for another time. Do some really sweet things that people don't know about but the last tweet that i wanted to just before we get into your life is your recognition of the show the boys on prime. How freaking greed is that show. I i love it. I still got to shoot episodes. I think left to go yeah saddam idiots. It's it's disturbing. I'm riveted to it <hes> with you know it's such a social satire commentary on the world. We live in business that worked and the political system that we're all living. It's it's really really good and when you think about it and i won't ruin it for you because you have to left but when you think about it though it's that's exactly how superheroes would be if they existed. They wouldn't be like the marvel crew. They would be exactly like this right. Okay so let's get into your mazing life man here so you're born in western kentucky so the acting buds bog in performance bug has got a bite you right that grandparents grandparents house right because they do a lot of i don't wanna see entertaining because that's a terrible war. They put a well. How would you phrase it was the fourth i peter peter i ever attended was my grandparents torch it. Was you know it was farming. Culture and on the weekends are on sundays usually sunday afternoons afternoons after church. That's where everyone would gather. Isn't that was the one day they wouldn't be working. <hes> the the first time i really thought that i i wanna do that. I mentioned earlier of freshman year in high school three movies that just blew me away that it was the summer seventy seven seventy eight <hes> star wars halloween animal house. Those are the ones youngest pre trees videotape rentals. You know if you saw movie you had to see skaters so the movies i went back to seek multiple times where those three and they were the ones that really planted the seed. I've told by a family friend. I do do not remember this but i can remember being the ham as a kid telling jokes that stuff but she swears when i was around five years old at my grandmother's house. She said what she goes. You look to being you said monday. I'm going to be an actor in movies. I don't i don't remember it but she he swears so i guess that seat was planted earlier animal house. You have to say one of the things that you have that is really difficult difficult to get either. You have it or you don't that's my opinion on. This is a sense of humor because i i always have those people who say well. I'm funny like if you have to tell somebody. You're funny earl. You're not not funny and i believe that you've got that about you. Thanks there is there is a thing of timing that is kind of an inherent thing that if people don't have it you can't learn it <hes> it is an innate thing that really goes to the any kind of skill in any creative pursuit <hes> but yes. I do think there's a lot of great stand up comics folks who were not good actors and there's a lotta great actors who can't do comedy. I always found myself drawn towards the uh the artists that kind of <hes> did everything and shell silverstein and kris kristofferson and you know musicians as in writers and painters actors don't really think it all comes from the same place is different skill sets crafts skills involved also but that that need to create live in the moment and we share that with that i think is universal. No that's really really well said and i was talking to aunt cusak who's in the boys and she brought up second city in chicago and she was talking about that and how how that how you mentioned timing right so she was really focused on the timing part of it so it's interesting to hear you say it that way. It's really really well federal and it's it's just a story from my resume in how you approach stuff i i was a rabid seinfeld fan and i ended up getting cast on seinfeld with guest star and i never really been around. Any of those got is in leary had just won the award for master of my domain which i think alongside vitamin d benjamin lucie is the best half hour of television comedy ever written a bomb. There's some norman lear stuff that i would probably put come in that pantheon but but anyway just line so i find myself on the show cont- they fired another star in the middle of that week. I hadn't seen larry the entire time and we're about to shoot and mine was a big theme at the top of the show that sets the a. n. B. storylines in into play too big seen on a on a bus with george jerry so we've we've been rehearsing on the set. We're going to pre-tape that on an actual bus so there is shows up for the rehearsals we we go through it and as they're pulling the boss on the sound stage he goes earl is comically this. This seems not working not that coming so we go down to the other during the stage and he says let's let's run it. I'll be jordan jerry u._b. L. let's let's let's run it so we do it two or three times and he had this annoying habit habit of shaking his head no ever so slightly as we're doing it because i tell you i tell you what let's switch out the audi al u._b. George and jerry gary. Let's switch so we do it a couple of times switching roles. It was all right. Let's switch back so we slipped back back started doing this thing. He starts shaking his damned head and you know i don't lose my cool hardly ever do i even get nervous but man by ask was clinton in that. I'm gonna get tired. I said all right but let's and as he shaking his head ahead no and when i see all right what's what's the intention at the top of the scene. I mean the beat when i think of in terms of of the beats intentions intentions as an actor. <hes> you know that you enter a scene you you have a purpose for entering seeing that in that whole purpose that arc leeches through the seeing you have beats that that changed through the course of things leading toward the purpose so that's the way i think of stuff and i said so. You'll oh my intention when i entered the scene i i don't know him from from this week and he's looking at me with this incredulous look on his face me like i said oh. I didn't say this but i thought it. She doesn't think black a playwright. He doesn't think what beatson intentions each strictly comic rhythms bets. Ah the rhythm and pace of the saying fuck do it again. Let's do it again. I go back to the top and basically impersonated canadian him doing the part. That's it that's it. That's it that's it. That's the thing so that you know that was a learning process because that's the way he approaches stuff <hes> and then of course when we got he put himself in the scene as the man in the cape running on the bus and we get on the bus. I was too tall for the lights. I had to squat so that my face would appear on camera. I had he was the most unnatural thing in the world on on on camera on the frame it will but i had to do was incredibly comfortable and then we start filming the damn seen i can see his ball all hit the corner of my eye checking when he says that you know the larry sanders show exaggerated. I buy per cell nice not exaggerating there <music> but that but that's a that's a great point you bring up because you kind of he just has a different approach of how to do things. I mean look at your. I mean when i said had you were a diverse actor. I wasn't kidding all your work. Your filmography filmography is amazing so you must have as an actor those little. Those are the little things you have to learn along along the way that that obviously make you the actor you are today right. It's those little moments right. Is that a good way of looking at it yes but but it looks like not every situation. Are you perfect for our baseball game on right now. Not every great player fits on every t- recruit them and and in that situation it was it was uncomfortable for me. It turns out. It's aren't you know i'm i'm fine in it. I'm in the same cell thing <hes> and then other times. There's situations where it's just like. You know it's a perfect perfect fit. You just immediately click in with everybody that you're working with. Deadwood was that was just a really rare her <hes> situation that we were all firing on all cylinders and and we knew that we have something unique and it created hit a bond that that still exists a jerry stone pot that still exists between all of us yeah.

Immigration and customs enforcement needs more space to house undocumented immigrants and increasingly the agency is finding it in rural regions and new analysis by n._p._r. Indicates a majority of detainees are held in rural areas but as n._p._r.'s yuki noguchi reports those detained in far flung places also have a much harder time finding lawyers and are far more likely to be deported. It took ten and a half months for you. L. alonzo to meet with a lawyer alonzo had turned himself over to immigration officials in laredo texas seeking asylum from cuba last october since then he's been detained in two rural facilities i in louisiana and now in adams tmz county mississippi about a two hour drive from baton rouge alonzo's wife. Madonna's rodriguez is a permanent u._s. resident. She lives in southern florida with their two children the n._b._a. N._b._a. leary very far from anything. She says too far to afford hiring. A private attorney. Lack of legal help is one of many challenges for undocumented undocumented immigrants and an even bigger problem for those detained in remote locations yet. Ice is adding detention facilities far from cities over half fifty. The two percent of detainees are held in rural areas according to n._p._r.'s analysis of ice data and that rate is increasing. Liz martinez is a board member of advocacy z. Group freedom for immigrants. It's very concerning trend that immigration detention is moving to rural areas remote areas where it makes it so much harder for a person in detention to get the support that they need detainees in urban areas or at least four times more likely to find attorneys to represent them. According to a two thousand fifteen university of pennsylvania ovadia law review study last year the southern poverty law center sudeiss and its parent agency the department of homeland security the civil rights group alleges the government is deliberately liberally detaining people in rural areas far from legal resources is which currently detains nearly fifty six thousand people declined comment on that case in in an emailed statement an ice spokesman says the agency looks at airports healthcare and legal resources when selecting facilities he also says detainees have access to phones and video teleconferencing and can meet with lawyers during visiting hours but many immigration attorneys complained rural facilities lack necessary resources there aren't enough. The phones are translators. Call connections are poor. Visiting hours are too restrictive and it's simply too far to travel. You'll alonzo's wife has been able to visit him. Only only once alonzo was recently diagnosed with lung cancer which makes the weight more excruciating. He eventually found a lawyer one of the rare detainees with free three representation but his wife says his asylum request and to request for parole have been denied grumpy what more could a wife with a sick husband one other seven to be with him at the very least i want to offer him my support and for my children's offer support one of the key reasons detainees are held in remote regions appears to be the money cheap labor cheap land. Lauren rich eisen is acting director of the brennan center justice program. She says many rural areas viewed prisons as job. Engines hundreds hundreds of new facilities were built in the nineteen ninety. S inmate population peaked then declined leaving lots of empty beds. Ice is now contracting with those rural prisons. It needs those beds as it continues to detain more immigrants. Just last week is arrested. Nearly seven hundred workers at food processing plants in mississippi loyola university law professor andrew armstrong says she sees that happening across louisiana win. The criminal justice reforms were enacted that left empty not beds that were ripe for contracting with ice. Those contracts can be lucrative. The state pays local sheriff's twenty four dollars and thirty nine cents a day to house an inmate eight by comparison ice pays five times that an average daily rate of more than one hundred twenty six dollars is confirmed it recently opened eight new detention and facilities seven of which are in louisiana all but one of them are in sparsely-populated areas. Lisa lehner is director of americans for immigrant justice. She represents detainees in glades county florida about one hundred miles from miami. Glades is the state's fourth least populated county surrounded by acres of sugarcane infield. I've never seen immigration attorney up there. You've never seen one never detainees there. She says are tweeted like hardened. Criminals glades aids has been the subject of a number of complaints and lawsuits they allege everything from misuse of pepper spray and solitary confinement to religious persecution later argues conditions are worse in rural facilities in part because fewer people can observe what's happening by contrast. She says when a brooklyn new york ice facility lost not for a week during a cold snap in january there was an outcry and if there's going in and out you would imagine that the people who are detaining immigrants are going to behave in a more careful way. It's not just that treatment might differ immigration courts in rural areas denied. Many more asylum cases sending detainees back back to their home countries. N._p._r.'s analysis of research from syracuse university found judges in rural immigration courts denied eighty seven percent of asylum cases compared to just over half an urban courts. Romi learner is associate director of the immigration clinic at the university of miami's law school. It is an issue because it means if you got a bad bucks.

"You know what yeah we're not giving him enough credit yeah. Then theory invented a much we wouldn't have the EMOJI movie for not Timothy Leary to blame for something else. Okay so then this thing <music> basically after you you know you're high you pound on all these buttons it prints out a little paper script that records what your trip was like <hes> some articles characterized the millbrook group in leary as actually not being as a kind of like psychedelic crazy he as you might think they were <hes> they were sometimes depicted as being east coast upper-class elitists and very exclusive now can Keesey in his merry pranksters came out there at one point <hes> and they were like Oh. This is great. Hey let's go meet these psychedelic pioneers and they're like Oh man. These guys are just total stiffs. They're boring <hes> so this is interesting interaction between these two worlds yeah 'cause you. You tend to think we'll leary would have just been able to move throughout the counterculture. All Trim <unk> embraced everywhere yeah but but not so so during this time with Millbrook leary was convicted on several charges. This is when a lot of the prison stuff happens. It's all related to drug use in possession. The millbrook house itself was raided and and leary was arrested by WHO G Gordon Liddy Guess at the time g Gordon Liddy was the he was part of the county sheriff's Department there in New York now later on he went to be part of the Watergate Burglary <hes> and he ends up teaming up with the Timothy leary down the way yeah. We'll get into that in a bit so yes this man. This is where things really started getting bonkers right mill millbrook and afterwards urges where things really let loose with leary yeah. This is definitely a period where on one level <hes> leary and his bunch they are being targeted. Yeah totally on the other hand you could also say well. They're kind of they're making themselves easy targets but eventually ended up in kind of gray area there when when you're saying well did he have it coming or not but now this is certainly a period of time where you can say that that leary and <hes> people in his circle were being targeted ticketed by the authorities on the other hand. You might charge while they were. They were kind of making themselves ideal targets for these for these forces as well yeah yeah I mean let's take this as an example okay so right. After this raid happened leary he goes down to New York in at the Manhattan Town Hall there. He gives a talk and he the air he says L._S._D.. It might actually be a problem and he says quote L._S._D.. May Be creating a new race of mutants. This is like the the kind of hyperbole that he's starting to use in his rhetoric. He said he was going to stop using L._S._d.. And he urged others to do so but he also advocated that L._S._d.. Would cure alcoholism accelerate learning and may be helpful in entreating all forms of mental illness while as we know from the last episode some of these things seem to be true we need to do more research on them but because of its harmful side effects leary advised using other methods to produce psychedelic effects so he says eating just simply do this with the right lights sounds and a stroboscopes so he's basically like the don't bother with the L._S._d.. Anymore just like getting the right mood man and will like put the right kind of colorful lights in a room and things like that. It's the same same experience with this. This is a really I found this to be a really interesting chapter in his life based on greenfields telling the biography and I do want to drive home like Greenfield is not leary apologist. If anything like his book could have been titled Timothy He leary Colon a mess right yeah but but he gives an interesting account of this so in this talk <hes> leary prophesized is an evolution in human consciousness that will allow humans to consult their own heightened cellular consciousness and live in harmony with nature so basically like the abandonment.
