Musk predicts full autonomy from 2021
"All right so getting into the must interview. This was earlier today. Yulon was accepting the axel award the fifth person to win this award so we sat down for about a thirty minute. Chat or so with axel springer's see up overall. I thought it was a really good interview. I'll put the link in the show notes. A lot of stuff that we have heard before of course but some interesting new insights as well from you on. I think the biggest headline will probably be comments around. Autonomous driving axles springer. Ceo asked quote win. Is thomas driving really really going to happen. And quote and john said quote. I'm extremely confident of achieving full autonomy and releasing it to the tesla customer base next year. And so of course. We've heard comments like this from the past. And we also have this sort of convolution going on between full autonomy and tesla's full self-driving option as oftentimes ilan will talk with that as a frame of reference and talk about win. That option will be feature complete which is not necessarily full autonomy so the actual springer co did a great job here of clarifying that point saying level five relief full autonomy and eline replied. Yes yes and quote so just to clarify what that means that five is defined as the vehicle being incomplete control and it can handle all circumstances conditions that a human driver could reasonably handle so essentially full autonomy. If we step down the levels level four is basically the same except it is only in certain locations or in certain circumstances so you can think of something that is geo fenced or maybe only works during the daytime or when. It's not raining something like that. But if all those conditions are met it can be fully autonomous. It doesn't even need deva pedal or steering wheel and again. The vehicle has full control and responsibility stepping down to level three. This is the middle ground. Where under certain conditions within the drive the car may be able to take over but when those conditions are no longer the case. The car needs to alert the driver to be ready to take over with a reasonable warning period. So good example there is. Maybe it's highway only where you don't really need to pay attention. There's no nag but as your your exit. Maybe the cartels you. Hey and ten seconds you need to be ready to take over control so to go from level to where the driver is info control but has sort of assistance features to go to level. Three is really a big significant step and even with the full. Self-driving beta test tesla has not taken that step quite yet but of course. That's what they hope to be able to collect data four to be able to prove that eventually the system can go ahead and confidently have control needing that driver monitoring if that happens on some portions of the drive. Tesla ben is able to step up to level three. If tesla's confident that that can happen for all portions of some drives that step to four and if it can take over every drive all the time that's level five so ilan feel confident that they can eventually get to level. Five yuan here is saying that that will happen next year again. That would be quite a step up. From where tesla is today as for regulations allowing something like this. You llamas competent that at least some jurisdictions will allow that next year and from my limited research on this. I'm pretty sure many states already do think florida is a great example where fully autonomous vehicles are already permitted and ready to go where nothing would need to change in the regulations to allow a level five operation of course many other areas could be more strict and the regulation. And it'll sort of get phased in. I think over time if this is able to be achieved
Lana Del Rey criticized for wearing mesh mask to poetry reading
"Celebrities don't seem to give. Teresa. Judas posted a video for her daughter's birthday party without a single mass insight and Lana del Rey recently were Mesh facemask while meeting fans at her book signing show a Ha. What do we think about this? If I'm wearing a mask? Place. I go and getting lipstick everywhere I think these bitches can wear a mask I have to say, okay I'm concerned about both but I'm more concerned about llamas because she's doing a book signing. So there's. Influx of people that are coming in and out. Into a building, and she doesn't know who they are. They're not fam- family or friends. These are just regular people who are coming in and out is just completely irresponsible if out the seeing that transparent mass though I would have been out of the air told her is a little something about ourselves. We're living in a time where obviously we all know the risks. Now on that note though that is a great mask of all the masks I've ever seen that is the coolest one. I was laughing and then I stopped. I. Pass that comet by hundred. But I will say llamas people just for their part did say that she tested negative, which is why she wore the Mesh math and that she was staying six feet away from fans look at some of these fan pictures that was not a six feet distance like she was very close to some of these people that were alarmed closer than six feet I mean that's extremes me. Even inches even she. TESTED NEGATIVE Everyone, they're tested negative it's just it's this is why you're waiting rounds. We are waiting for saying that they're testing negative and that we find out later the next day they test positive and. Spreading, it's everybody around him who's been around them so you can't that.
Mahmudr in the Geluk and Kagy Traditions
"Maybe we'll start with. Way Your interest in Mahamoud. Way Did that how did that come about? When was that? So since by had? I probably I got interested in Mahamoud per se early in Grad school or perhaps a little bit before that might regional interest in Buddhism back in high school days early in college was mostly in San and I always expected that would be the form of Buddhism than I ended up practicing but the as says avid my then girlfriend now wife and I ended up traveling overland India in one, thousand, nine, hundred, seventy, three into nineteen, seventy four, and then ended up at coupon monastery just outside. Katmandu where we studied where Rama Tipton yesterday in London Lumberton. And those famous co concourses which are still ongoing by merrily introductions allom Rim to the stages of the path of course. Llamas, OBA has a particular particularly in those days maybe a little. So I don't know He had a particular teaching style wary if you're at a month course, you could pretty much be sure that half the time was going to be spent in the lower rounds. So he did delight in. Those and Mama yesterday would, of course come in and remind us that we all had put a nature. So it was kind of A. Tough. Cop Nice cop routine and away. And you know he was he was a it was kind of overwhelming for me despite my interest. But as despite my having majored in religion in college and so forth. But. All the complication you know both the details of rim, how Karma works all the different realms, the scholastic arguments back and forth about beginning less mind an emptiness and so forth all of it was incredibly impressive. They were particularly impressive as practitioners as people who lived out what they had studied on what they were teaching but I I also began in in the few the few hours that were that I had hadn't disposal to to read. I think it was probably some poems by Miller wrap up where Branson book by John Blow Fouls, which just had a little bit of discussion. Mahmoud. and. The way the way I took it brightly. At times this reminds me a lot of ZAP it a bid, it short circuits all the detail, all the ritual, all the scholasticism. All those kinds of things that just tells you to realize the nature of your mind. So it appealed to me. Even that? Sort of a a hidden card. Yuba. Lurking inside this is fledgling gay look back. And I kept that in mind when. Year or so you're a half later I ended up graduate school at the University of Wisconsin, studying under shapes up SOPA. who was the first as far as I know the first Betton tenure at American University, certainly the first Tibetan guess. Who was tenured at American University and again to to study with guesses OPA both in the context of the graduate program that Wisconsin and at the deer park would a center as it's now called. Founded. In the mid seventies was too steep yourself in again are a great deal of the the complexity, the ritual, the richness, certainly of of the gaylord actual tradition and once again. The. Reading Mamo drawn decide what kind of balanced helped balance things out for me. So the number of the papers I wrote at Grad School, you know we're on the Mosit- as of India or or soccer punditocracy critiques of Mahamoud, draw various topics like that. So I, you know even in Grad school I I had this interest You know it sometimes said about Chinese practitioners. They're confusions during the day and Taoists. At Night I. Think a part of me that's was during the day and At night. Of course went when I began to discover that was that there was a whole Gaelic tradition of Mambo. I'd been vaguely aware of because it was a little translation that had come out at the library of Tibetan works in archives and. I read through that and So you know after I got Grad school sort of begun by my teaching career. I. Along with rank, of course, bring my dissertation into book form of pretty much everybody wants to do at some point are almost everybody wants to. Buy began to again sort of on the side begin to begin to investigate Gaylord Mabul dress, and so that's at least in terms of the genesis of this I. Guess That's That's how I would I would explain it. In a this dungeon have any. Teachers. Teaching. Mahmoud to you know you know during we went and saw on trump shays league. Once in Chicago he was notoriously late. He was typically drinking soccer when he was typically brilliant. So you know everything we had heard was true. And I think later in the seventies and into the eighties I began to to go occasionally to cognitive teacher but no, I did not have a regular. Teacher and I. I guess it's fair to say that I really never had a sort of regular teacher although in more recent years I've studied some weakening. European. Fortunately for us has his world had ordered in Minneapolis just. Just a few miles from where we live. So now, my my interest I mean I was interested in cognitive because if you're interested in mom will address even from the Gaylord stand going you clearly have to begin researching. Kogyo because. Even, some texts presents the. Is Fine Llamas. Book with. Alex. burs. The gala argue slash kagyu tradition of Mahamoud address. Implies that it's a kind of a sing credit tradition or a synthetic traditional might be a slightly better word So you and it's very clear that the first Panchen Lama who was one of the tutors of style on one of the truly great figures Gael history. He clearly was familiar with cargill literature and and it would seem with some Kogyo practices so. In my in the process of beginning to research, Ma Gala Mambo. Dry Inevitably had to begin reading at least a lot in In the calculator corresponded with scholars argue. Of various sorts Michael. Roy. David Jackson others. Of course the way these things work you you've you dig into you want your insulin gay look initially you dig into the cog you and then you get into the cockpit realize Oh God. All this comes from India and you've got to go back and look again at Sada. High and the other message you gotta look at the time. TRAS. Very, clearly, the textual a kind of sources for Mahmoud to discourse and behind that. Then of course, always these claims that there's a Sutra Mabul dry and so you begin digging around in sutures that may mention the word or may talk about ideas that are similar and so. I ended up going down this kind of rabbit, hole. That led me deeper and deeper back into Indian tradition and it started out as really odd. I'll do a few little translations and right any production suddenly was this Gargantuan projects that threatened to be about just about everything in. Indian. In Tibetan. Buddhism. Because in a weird way Mamo Dra, it was said, could be found everywhere in India, wants about bottles.

Understanding the Buddhas Teachings for Ourselves
"To the huge whether I'm traveling in an aeroplane among place, so cancel the airplanes cost, but I'm still doing the teaching artists three feet into the computer, so it's quite handy, and it's been very nice. It's been very good I mean pulled in Oregon some very kind of giving their apartment, not very much cheaper, and sometimes they're an I'm sitting here doing my job. This very good I'm quite content and how you finding teaching over the Internet. Yeah, I mean really released prized by. Having the people on the screen you know because you can get twenty five people so first of all. Because it's people, the welcome coming, he would never go to a teaching considering Timbuktu somewhere. They can join so it's been very moving against experienced. I was really surprised by that having people's faith and win of course, a President I mean twenty five people on the computer screen, and then you fix, patient pays and see who's there and those who don't won't faced on habits. Once you start asking questions. They come up strong, and it's been very moving and people to said that, but it's really quite preston quite direct and quite intense. Intense, so I, really really really enjoying it I have to say it's kind of a an odd thing to say straight. Curious. Yeah, do you think you'll do more of it? When you can travel you get back on the planes and travel around the world I think eventually when I'm very very old. When I'm very old now my probably do that, but I don't mind driving around and don't have a home right now, so I can't keep in the other. People's. I mean this is a flash. Some sleep around is okay very well. Traveling on airplanes, sweeping around seats means gave up running the prison. Project is based in California. State, sort of fully since ninety, four, ninety, five, ninety, five, ninety, four, then rush out of the prison. We started the prison project about ninety six, and then again that up. Two thousand nine so since I've been teaching full time. So I'll go knowle's cinches. You know people invite me not Dubai schedule go so the last ten years I haven't had a hundred. I had one small bag. One St of robes, companies, a shoes by a few things ultra. Six me really I must have been. What do you call one of those nine really suit. My nature I have to say that I really does and I always think. Lewis people that go your houses when I die. Nothing no to team. Up because. You've got an easy exit. One of the things one of the questions I. wanted to ask you is that you know you travel around? The World Teaching Dhamma around the world I'm wondering what it is that you find about the Dhamma that resonates with people. What is what are some of the things that you go to? You know no matter where you land was gonNA engage able. Well, you know this is where. I mean it just seems to me clearly, we want to summarize what Buddha is a bad. It's not a joke starting to be a clever, he has issued. Say you need to learn to be around Serapis? I think we're really do on pack. We get beyond the. Indian amazing culture for centuries enough and the frame welcome to mention framework of things and like. Really with it, you start to get to the essence, and clearly the essence has to be the mind, so you're not putting Greek for God's sake, but it is not a psychologist on anything. That's exactly I mean. Everything comes down to the mind, even the fuel. It's it's amazing. Sufficient. Brilliant worldview of the Buddha's is observed to be true. That is a law natural law that runs a unit us. And what does it run is law within which minds and lives of sentient beings run, so there's Buddhist psychology which is a how the mind works and that trump's from is genius. Indians are with. His Holiness. He says it was amazing Indians more than three thousand years ago. Who wants to begin the investigation tonight? Yourself I mean we clip Judeo Christian. European SORTA was Mr Freud didn't do. It was arrogance so physical Buddha commanders incredible system. What do they do? They met the mind they met. The mind to yield is four thousand distinct mental illnesses, which summarize into three is an incredibly sophisticated map of the mind I mean they only mapping them on now. You know the Brian. What does match the on the cognitive process? So it's not all about the mind, then. What else is Buddhism so you get right down to? The big sort of Llamas Alpacas issues, doors. Lama from the very beginning I could see ask entities teachings that he he was lucky his born Hippie, he just knew how to talk to in the sixties and seventies, so he it down to this fundamental way where Ron fine, because we're so full of resolve, his overwhelming lethal of dissatisfaction in culture and which. Could see were willing. These soap piteous hippies full of misery. He stopped trying to tell us about Amman. Potential so to me. This is the the bottom line almost like a fraud I was talking about the same thing. The Whitewater presents mind and this incredible potential. We've got this. Is everybody no matter whether the communist with people psychologist with university students meet outside the Buddhist Woods in super amazing way to see the mind understand, everybody recognizes everybody can recognize though I told you know want us his terminology. This distinction between delusions virtues. This is a radical idea for the wasting recognizes is just start moving to me. You can never tired of the more you can let your mind. This is what gives people. Courage is what gives us optimism, and we don't have that in our culture I mean. Where is there in? In any psychology on Euroscience, dare suggest that you can read the multiple. The rubbish grow the goodness, which is the meaning of the word Buddha only. Buddhas that's very stock terms. Is

Movie date here. Well we were watching star wars movie last week. Actually for a May the fourth be with you. Yes I mean. Everyone wants to start saying I just heard there. There really isn't a new one. I forget the forget. The woman's name is GonNa help write it but it seems promising either way it does break my heart a little bit. Though that when my kids think of Star Wars they think of the you know the. The newer movies is more than the ones that we are up with. I'm not sure I know if my kids know what star wars is it was. It was a happy meal toy for a little while when the movie was added December. Yeah they got. They got the toys. These little stupid star wars looks like a little longer thing but it's not really a Hologram is dumb. But they're still a bit young yeah. It was an awkward conversation. You know when Antigen kind of goes on his rage and kills like the whole village and everything he. He's the bad guy it's weird. Yeah it's definitely I mean. People talk about the right order to watch star wars and all that when you show it to your kids but I don't know you just never replicate how how we came just hours. Not even I mean even necessarily. It's it's so old. I watched all the star wars before I came out on ninety nine but I was seventeen when when episode one came out so like I knew. All the twists stopped but not it wasn't like ingrained the same way it was like you grew up. Watch if you're a teenager. We saw star Wars Serb return. Whatever yeah so for my parents they got to see it in the movie theater for the first time and I just kind of watched it on video. Yeah you Kinda delegates you. I don't know if I don't I don't remember. I was young. Probably younger than maybe. What the target you had you got and see the movie but like the elevators father. I don't know if that hits the same way. Twenty years later as does what did you know in the graphics of the silly laser. That's it to like. It was space fights and his lightsaber stuff. That was like ingrained culture by the time he saw it and now kids like the stuff is but what does that. Yeah like. My daughter was asking watching this movie and she was like wait. A minute is good or bad guy. And it's like well just star. Just keep watching and you'll see you know it's not going to have to have the same effect for her because she is starting out with a an thinking of him as a good guy you know whereas we came from the opposite and love okay. Darth vader was definitely the bad guy. And then okay. Let's watch the the PREQUELS and like oh. He used to be a good guy. It's a completely different experience. Yes we isn't it. I always like stuff like that when you come to. I mean I wish the movies were better than the first three really star wars. Isn't that great? A movie from a cinematic like sinophile. Kyp- story Oh critic is interesting. How the stories come out differently the way you watch them and it's always neat when you can watch something different watering a different experience and learn more I was so but specifically joints. You'll have joins now right. You have a little helper. Droid running around. I mean we do have like NBA's and this thing but rt to is going to be probably one of the most beloved star wars characters. Maybe the only put a number one.

The Superposition Principle
"Hi It's Eric with some thoughts for this week's audio say on the topic of Super Position. Now to those of you in the know. Superposition is an odd word in that it is the scientific concept we reach for when trying to describe the paradox of Schroeder's cat in the theory and philosophy of quantum measurement. We don't yet know how to say that. The cat is both dead and alive at the same time. Rigorously so we fudge whatever is going on with this unfortunate feline and say that the cat and the quantum system which it's life depends are a mixture of two distinct states that are somehow co-mingled in a way that has defied a satisfying explanation for about a century. Now I'm usually loath to appeal to such quantum concepts in everyday life as there is a veritable industry of people making bad quantum analogies for example whenever you have a non quantum system that is altered by its observation that really has nothing to do with the Heisenberg uncertainty principle. Jane Goodall Chimpanzees are almost certainly altered in their behavior due to her presence. But there is likely no competent. Quantum theorist who would analogize chimps two electrons and goodall to her mission observable executing a quantum observation. Heisenberg adds nothing other than physics. Envy to the discussion of an entirely classical situation. Such as this whoever I have changed my mind in the case of superposition if I would like to explain to begin with superposition isn't a quantum phenomena for example. Imagine that you'd come from Europe to Australia. And that you had both euros and Swiss francs in your pockets. You might then be said to be in a super position because you have pocket change in both euros and francs rather than a pure state of only one currency or the other the analog of a physical observable in this situation would be something like a multiple choice question found on the landing card about the contents of your pockets. Here it is easy to see the danger of the setup assuming you have three times as much value in euros as you do in francs what happens when you get a question. That doesn't include your situation as an answer. What if the landing card asked is all of your change in a euros or be Swiss francs with no other options available? Well this as stated is a completely classical superposition problem having nothing to do with quantum theory. We're you to have such classical question asked of you like this. There would have been no way for you to answer however if the answer. We're on the multiple choice menu. There would be no problem at all and you would give a clear answer determined by the state of your pockets so if the state in question isn't on the multiple choice menu. The classical world is forced to go. Mute is there is no answer determined by the system whereas if it is found on the list of allowable choices the answers then completely determined by the system state at the time that the question was asked. Oddly the quantum world is in a way exactly as deterministic as the classical one just described despite what you may have heard to the contrary in order to understand this. We'll have to introduce a bit of jargon so long as the system now called the Hilbert Space State is on the list of answers technically called the system of eigen vectors corresponding to the question now called a quantum observable the question will return a completely deterministic answer technically called the eigen value corresponding to the State. Iconductor. These are in a sense. Good questions in quantum theory because the answer corresponding to the state of the system actually appears as one of the multiple choice options so if that is completely deterministic while then what happened to the famous quantum probability theory and the indeterminately that we hear so much about what I told you that it. We're one hundred percent confined to the situation. Which classical theory couldn't handle either? That is quantum probability theory only becomes relevant when you ask bad quantum questions where the state of the system isn't on the list of multiple choice answers when the landing card asked if all your changed completely in euros or only francs. The classical system couldn't answer because three times the value of your Swiss francs were held in Euros. So no answer could be determined but if your pocket change were somehow quantum while then you might find that seventy five percent of the time your pocket coins would bizarrely turn into pure euros and would be wilder only turn into pure francs twenty five percent of the time just by virtue of your being asked for measurement by the landing cart in the quantum theory. This is due to the multiple choice. Answers of the so-called observable represented by the landing card question not being well suited to the mix state of your pockets in a super position between euros and francs in other words quantum theory gets probabilistic. Only where classical theory went mute. All of the indeterminately appears to come from asking bad multiple choice questions in both the classical an quantum regimes in which the state of the system doesn't fit any given answer quite honestly. I've never heard a physicist rework the issue of quantum probabilities in just this way so as to highlight that the probabilistic weirdness comes only from the quantum being overly solicitous in accommodating really bad questions for some reason. They don't like the idea of Kalyan observable that doesn't have the state of the system as an allowable answer a bad question but that is precisely why I do like it points out that the quantum is deterministic. Where the classical theory is deterministic and only probabilistic where the classical theory is mute. This is because it is really willing to answer questions that are in a sense that can be made precise bad questions to begin with. That doesn't get rid of the mystery but it recasts it so it doesn't sound quite so weird. The new question is why would a quantum system over compensate for the lousy questions being posed when the classical system seems to know not to answer? So why bring any of this up well? The first reasons that I couldn't resist sneaking personal reformulation of the quantum measurement problem that most people will have never considered but the second reason is that I've come to believe that we are wasting our political lives unjust such superposition questions for example. Let's see if we can solve the abortion debate problem right now in this podcast using superposition as it is much easier than the abortion problem itself. The abortion debate problem is that everyone agrees that before fertilization. There's no human life to worry about. And that after a baby is born. There is no question that it has a right to live yet. Pro Choice and pro life. Activists insist on telling us that the developing embryo is either a mere bundle of cells suddenly becoming a life only when born or a full-fledged baby the moment the sperm enters the egg you can guess my answer here. The question of is it. A baby's life or a woman's choice is agreed upon by everyone before fertilization or following birth because the observable in question has the system as one of the two multiple choice answers in those two cases however during the process of embryonic development something miraculous is taking place that we simply don't understand scientifically somehow a nonsense blast ula becomes a baby by a process utterly opaque to science which has yet has no mature theory of consciousness. The system in Utero isn't changing and progressing superposition tilted heavily towards not being a baby at the beginning and tilted towards being one at the end of the pregnancy. But the problem here is that we have allowed the activists rather than the umbrella gist and developmental biologist to hand us the life versus choice observable with it's too terrible multiple choice options if we'd let the embryologist set the multiple choice question there would be at least twenty three carnegie stages for the embryo before you even get to fetal development but instead of going forward from what we both know and don't know with high confidence about the system. We are instead permanently. Deranged by being stuck with Schrodinger embryo by the activists who insist on working backwards from their political objectives. So does the somehow solve the abortion issue? Of course not all it does is get us to see how ridiculously transparent we are in our politics that would allow our society to be led by those activists. Who would shoehorn the central scientific miracle of human development into a nutty political binary of convenience? We don't even think to ask. Who are these people who've left us? At each other's throats debating an inappropriate multiple choice question that can never be answered well in the spirit of the portal we are always looking for a way out of our perennial problems to try to find an exit and I think that the technique here of teaching oneself to spot superposition problems in stalemated political systems brings a great deal of relief to those of us who find the perspective of naive activism fairly impoverished worldview the activist mindset is always trying to remove nuance elections. That might better match our world's needs from among the multiple choice answers until it finds a comical binary. Do you support the war on drugs? Yes or no. Are you for or against immigration? Should men and women be treated? Equally should embrace capitalism or chew socialism racism systemic problem or convenient. Excuse is China trading partner or a strategic rival has technology stagnated or. Is it in fact racing ahead at breakneck speed. Has Feminism gone too far or not far enough? In all of these cases there's an entire industry built around writing articles that involve replacing conversations that might progress towards answers in agreement with simple multiple choice. Political options that foreclose all hope in general we can surmise when this occurred because activism generally leaves a distinct signature where the true state of a system is best represented as a superposition of the last two remaining choices that bitterly divided us. Handed us by activists so I will leave you with the following thought. The principle of superposition is not limited to quantum weirdness and it may be governing your life at a level. You have never considered think about where you were. Most divided from your loved ones politically. Then ask yourself when I listened to the debates at my dinner table. Am I hearing set of multiple choice answers that sound like? They were developed by scholars interested in understanding or by activists who are pushing for an outcome if the ladder thing about whether you couldn't make more progress with those you love by recognizing that the truth is usually in some kind of a superposition of the last remaining answers pushed by the activists. But you don't have to accept these middle brow binary dilemmas and try llamas instead. Trask a new question if my loved ones and I trust the terms of debate foisted upon us by strangers activists in the news media. Could we together fashionable list of multiple choice answers that we might agree? Contain an answer. We all could live with and that better describes the true state of the system. I mean do you really want open or closed borders? Do you really WanNa talk about Scylla Simon in heroin in the same breath. Do you really want to claim that there is no systemic oppression or that governs every aspect of our lives before long. It is my hope that you will develop an intuition. That many long running stalemated discussions are really about having our lives shoehorned by others into inappropriate binary that can only represent. The state of our world is a superposition of inappropriate and simplistic answers. That you never would have chosen for

"Watching and then falls on his back in the middle of this room and there's just this deafening echo that goes throughout the coast throughout the elevator. You know the stretching room and everyone's just silent for like three seconds and then we all just move forward and my family is very different. We did not check if he was okay. We were laughing hysterically and then asked him what happened. And he says I thought it was falling down an empty elevator shaft and that was it and we laughed for like twenty minutes after that. We didn't even didn't even experience the right. We had to go on it again because we were laughing so hard in the reason we were laughing so hard because if that happened to any one of us would never have let us forget it and not let them forget it. That's solid that is so funny if I would be scared if that happened to me because I probably would not say very many family for words to leave. It's shocking that my dad managed to keep his. I think he was he. He got up immediately. Like a you know like a wounded deer he just jumped up and it was like okay. you know. I'm fine and I don't think he wanted to draw attention to himself. That's good those are two. I liked that. Both of those are so funny. Yeah yeah that's what we like all right so last question that we have to ask you and we ask all of our guest is if you have one piece of party guidance that you can give to someone who they want to jump into this community either as a content creator. Maybe they won't open up a shop. Whatever it might be. What would be your advice to that person I think for me. It's be honest with yourself and beyond with the consumers of your content. You know one thing. That's really important to me when I'm planning a Disney trip and I'm like listening to podcasts with that in mind is there's people I know I can trust about their opinions and especially when it comes to Disneyworld. There's so much to do and it's so alien to me and there's so many options that I wanna make sure I'm doing things that are quality and there's just people that I that I can trust to the opinion they're giving me is their opinion and I think that it's important that the consumers of your content associate that with you and that's something we always have tried to do on. Our show is be honest about how we feel about things and and let people sort of decide from there but also being honest with yourself and making sure that you are Doing all the things that are right for you like we said earlier. Not overextending yourself. It's really good. I would save on top of that. Which all of that agree with. Yes Eh ambitious and courageous in what you do you can. You can take risks in what you're doing. Yeah the content specifically branching out. Just take a chance and it's okay to fail if it fails and be humble and willing to adapt and grow because you're not going to get it right the very first time in it may take a little while to settle into a groove where you know exactly what you're doing and I mean you can just take that from anything you've you've learned in life and gotten good at you. You weren't good at the beginning but you you learn and you got better so you just have to be patient in humble at the same time courageous in and try new things. I love both of those. And I think there's kind of a common thread between their of finding your voice and embracing your voice as well. Kinda hit to both of those points that autism what medium. You're going to like the most in what's going to really drive that passion out of you once you find it being able to push yourself and be more of yourself. I think many content creators have to go through that process of your kind of just showing little parts of you along the way with the quicker that you can get to embracing your opinions and your feelings and in your voice I think the better it works out so I think that is excellent advice to both of you gave. Yeah it's IT'S. It's been a journey for us but we. WanNa make sure that we are. We do things that we like and we think that if if we're honest and we do things that we enjoy other people enjoy that too and the people that enjoy will be people that we can keep listening because you know you can only pretend to be something. You're not for so long for sure. That's very true. Yeah well good deal.

"We became friends in band and then I moved a couple towns over and we stayed in touch kind of vaguely. We're both busy with high school. But then when college came we sort of rekindle everything in a speech and debate class we actually had so we own opposing sides. You know a debate I I might have been inaccurate and saying debate class. I think it was just a question. Just speech yeah. Robert took it as debate. He was challenging. People in the class is probably well. That makes sense so take us to the moment that the talking Llamas podcast was born. What sparked the idea what conversations took place to get it off the ground and kind of what were the early steps that you took to start getting it into production. We'll let me let me just start real quick with. I was kind of listen to podcasts. A lot in my later high school years and then I had a job early on out of high school whereas driving a truck so I. I listen to podcasts a lot and so I always kind of wanted to get into podcasting. Somehow I didn't really have an idea of how I wanted to do that. But then I I really got into Disney and I sort of having conversations with people about Disney a lot and I'd have conversations with Thomas but everyone else I had conversations between like not interested at all and interested to a point where they just petered out the conversations with Peter out and I actually went to a family event and one of my my close family members was like. Hey you know you spent the entire time talking about Disney. I'm not sure everyone was interested. Like someone actually pulled me aside and told me to chill out so you know I started listening to Disney podcast because of that and the imaginary podcast is one that Kinda got me into it with with with Matt. I listen to you guys. Listen to a few others and that got me into the idea of just creating an instagram where I just posted Disney just talked about Disney. And so I would post Disney pictures and that sort of thing and I also started blogging in. That's that sort of thing and I said you know. Maybe I'll do a podcast eventually but I wrote down all these kind of funny now. I wrote down all these things. These benchmarks I need to reach that. We're like okay. I need to have this done. And this mini blog post and this many photos uploaded or whatever but then eventually I think that just went to. Thomas said we should just do. This like can stop talking about it. I don't really want to wait anymore. And that's when we started it Thomasson kind of pick up there with. That was like for him for me was. I was almost caught off guard with the podcasts part. I knew he had the instagram account. Which was interesting to me. Having at that time zero social media but when he came in with the podcast idea. I've been listening to podcasts as well many different kinds and so I always thought it'd be fun to try it out no matter what the topic really was it. Didn't it didn't matter. I thought it'd be fun but Disney is something that like Roberts said we would discuss normally very frequently so it was easy to really jump on the idea that he presented of having the podcast and yes from there was just a matter of what are the the logistics of getting it started and. I think Robert did most of that work and then picking out the name and all that so Robert when you like. I thought about okay. Podcasting is something. I don't WANNA get too. Was it always that you wanted to bring on a partner? Was it just naturally that since you in? Thomas talked about Disney so much that it just kind of made sense or did you think about venturing out on your own. At first originally it was sort of a thing where I would always be on. I would bring other people in family friends. But Thomas Night I can have conversations with Thomas no matter what. Even if we didn't have a topic for that week we turn on the Mike Cynthia out. Something so became pretty clear. Pretty quickly that Thomas and I were going to do it together permanently and he helps a lot with the technical side to he. Does all the you know the editing in post all that sort of thing and I take on more of the social media sometimes coming up with ideas for the show is so it's a relationship where we're feeding off each other and each one of us has sort of responsibility for the production of the show so doing it alone if it became pretty clear pretty quickly. That wasn't going to be what we were going to do. So one thing that we definitely need that we wanted to talk about. Today was the name and he talked about. You had to come up with a name. Where did it come from coming up with a name for anything? We found out this quickly to is sort of a nightmare. Like it's like you don't first of all. There's a ton of Disney podcasts. Out there and there's a ton of names and we didn't really WANNA use Disney and the name just you know. We want to attach ourselves in that way to Disney. We wanted it to be separate but also uniquely Disney. So we've bounced a bunch of ideas off each other for a couple of days. D- A bunch of bad names a bunch of names that were okay but the reasons why they weren't perfect and then Thomas eventually came up with the name that we have now so you I mean you can tell them what inspired you well. Yeah we August ban just a second but we did start out with a couple of of names were really good but they had Disney and the title. I kind of want to save them so I'm not going to reveal them here. You never know when it's GONNA come back around for use it as a segment name or something who knows but yet so I was scrambling in my mind to figure out what could be a good name. I actually think it's kind of fun to think of a unique name or something to title for something that you've created So eventually I got to this point where one night. I just went upstairs into my room. And then it hit me talking law. The phrase talking Lama from the movie emperor's new groove just came into my mind and then I was playing with a we call ourselves the talking llamas in. We both love. That movie probably I think it's in both of our top three maybe just in terms of our favorites and so then. I ran it by Robert Eventually. We got to an agreement that that was going to be our name. That's solid I mean. It's it's always interesting to think about the naming process. I mean we've talked about it on our show. I came up with detour. Dan Ireland way before we even thought about podcasting. Can I grab the domain name? Not knowing what I would ever do that but I just liked the idea and what it meant to us so I think that's so interesting is also a step that many people get stuck on. I feel like yellow. Could Happen to us for sure. We felt that way at times and I think it is interesting to that. It's it has a Disney origin. But it doesn't is not like your face Disney. It is very clever. I appreciate that. Yeah we get a lot of questions about it like why don't you call yourself that and then we we explained to some people. I think people get it. But there's a sort of loud minority of people who are caught off guard by but yeah we we like it now. I mean that's what matters most really all it is is just a way to search for EU domain to look at you four but the content is what really matters so. I want to talk about the content. And how did you map that out? Is that something that you actively discussed to say? Okay here the types of things that we'd like to cover or did you let that kind of naturally carve itself out where you say. Okay we do a little bit of news. We do movie reviews. We do special topics and things like that for me. It started out as a lot of games. I I would ask Thomas. He's like really bizarre questions on our way to Disney trips or like driving down there. If we are in line for a ride I would say something like some came to you. If like anybody came to you and said a Disney ride is going to be demolished. You don't know which win it's going to be but you can protect one ride. Which FRY would it be? I would just say bizarre. Things like that randomly so it started out this sort of. I want to play games I want to do. We do this thing on our show where we do graphs were. We'll draft something. We have to sort of team. I guess you could say and which you know it'd be Disney movies Disney Disney soundtracks or something and at the end of the game. We've each drafted a team of Disney soundtracks. And that was kind of where it started for me and then as we started going. Anniversaries would come up for our favorite rides or a favorite movies. And we say you should talk about this on the show. We should talk about this movie or this ride and go into history. And that's when we started looking into you know will read books or we did a haunted mansion episode which I still think is one of our better ones. Who did it really early on? But there's a lot of reading involved there in that was fun and that gives us a new appreciation for the ride so it sort of evolved over time into US. Doing history movie reviews. Wow also playing the games that I kinda originally intended the podcast before. Yeah I think that's solid and I think that is a great approach for sure and I can say just from consuming it that nothing feels forced and I don't know if it ever feels that way on your end. I mean I can speak to us. Sometimes we record an episode in the end like that was a little forced. We weren't into it as much as we anticipated that we would be so. How does that process look of deciding? What's going to be the topic for each week? You mentioned that you can just turn on the mics and you'll find something to talk about. Sometimes but do you ever get stopped on a week or you know have to resort to anything else to to make sure that you're getting something that you're interested in..

"Welcome back to detour to Neverland. Today is episode number. One hundred and seventy five. We're almost to two hundred. Which is really crazy. It's super exciting. To be at one seventy five I do feel like it's a it's a milestone for us it is a milestone it's been a blur. I don't feel like we've created that many episodes but here we are here we are. It's exciting yes. We thank you guys for joining us on that journey for sure and before we share our interview for today which we're really excited about. We wanted to just share some kind of housekeeping things just to remind you on Wednesday. We are dropping more new episodes. And Right now we've been doing what we call our storytelling series where we look at the storytelling behind some of our favorite Disney attractions in. It's been a lot of fen for us to research in just discuss with each other this Wednesday. Our storytelling episode is all about the radiator springs. Racers in DC. So that'll be fun. It should be a Lotta Fun. I really enjoy putting those together. Angry the other thing that we have going on is we anticipated that we would be able to sign up for the virtual run series. Four run Disney for this summer. Obviously that has been put on hold for now but we did go ahead and create virtual run club and it's still been a lot of fun without having virtual runs to lean on. We've had people going on runs sharing their route sharing their training things that have come across and also keeping up to date on win. Those virtual runs might become available. So would love to have you join us over there. The link to join our that. Facebook group is in the show notes below or you can search for the. Neverland outcast virtual run club to mouthful. It is but they get thing is even. If you're not a runner you can join. Maybe you just like to walk Something that's really fun in our neighborhood. I know this has not a lot to do with the run club. But there's just like a walking club going on so if you're not a runner but you just want to get outside you could walk and just share that with us. Maybe tell us something that you saw or something that he thought about or whatever. It'll it's just a nice way to connect. Yeah for sure so. Today's episode is one that we are so excited about. It's with our friends Robert and Thomas from the talking Llamas podcast. One of the best names of a podcast that I've ever heard so they have that going for them. We talk a lot about. How Do you develop your style? How do you get something off the ground from idea to conception so just so many nuggets of value that I think will be helpful for you guys as you learn more about the talking llamas podcast so without further ado we'll go ahead and play that episode or that interview of course as always they will start by telling you a random fact that you may not know about them from social media so hope you enjoy hope you tune in on Wednesday okay? Well My name is Robert Komo Z. I am going to Disney for a really long time. You know started out with the sort of normal every three to five years going on a trip with family and that sort of thing my disney. The love I have for Disney really started to evolve in middle school and Thomas Night both experienced this. We joined the middle school band and a- large reason why I joined. It is because our band in Middle School. March down main street Every year and we would play several songs. I believe it was the Mickey Mouse March Super Calo fraudulous expeditious and it's a small world so from there you know that will be our guest as well. Oh We'd be our guest. Yeah so We would play those songs down on Main Street. And then we'd have three days in the parks just to ourselves and you know we had to check in with a apparent Or or a chaperone than we deal with a group of of friends but it was. The first time I had really experienced is Nina. Way And in later years I got an annual pass. I went with one of my good friends. Dan and then Thomas and I kind of You know we were going to the same college at the time and I told her I said you know. I have an annual pass. We could just head on down there. I can go anytime so when our school ended that semester. We went down to Disney. And we you know we did. The purchase Qian is adult. Some I think we're eighteen at the time and then since then my my daughter's been born and she's six now and she's gone she's gone to Disney park at Disneyland or Disney world. I think it's twelve times now And she's just turned seven actually a couple of weeks ago so she's been quite a few times and that's changed my Disney experience to and that's because when you have a kid you know this is just a general rule for having children but you know they see things through different eyes and so it's allowed me to see Disney through different eyes which has been great. Okay and for me. Yeah we've had very parallel Disney stories. But I think you mentioned a random fact about an ascend for me that would that would be. It's not crazy but it is something that I think. A lot of people don't like and that is. I actually enjoy public transportation or long flights or commuting because in this time to Disney. I can actually listen to music or podcasts like I. I tried to embrace those kinds of situations and in terms of Disney. That's one way that my interest Disney has evolved over time you know. Obviously you start with parks and movies for me. It's it's transitioned into really liking the music for the music but also the history for the history and so. That's where you can really take advantage of some downtime like that when you're traveling somewhere to go do something and one part of Disney stories. Long as we're on that subject is having begun years back in two thousand sixteen volunteering at the Walt Disney Family Museum in San Francisco. And we live about maybe forty five minutes away or so. Maybe an hour with public transportation. So that that's one of those ways that I really came to know that actually like having the opportunity on public transportation or commuting to listen to music podcasts. Whatever seems like a really great like meditation. Time where you can really dive into those things that it's not an active activity like driving where. I listen to podcasts. When I'm driving but you can't like jump around. That is one thing where we live in Nashville are. Public transportation is so bad. I took the train on this thing. I took the train one day and never again like to tell them why. You never read the train again. Well there's multiple reasons one is. I took it to avoid traffic. It dropped me off in downtown national and I worked in just one of the little neighborhoods and the bus to get over. There was the same traffic that I sat in his car. That was pointless and then coming back I had a coworker offered a drop me off at the train station. And then he proceeded. Drop me off at the wrong train station. Yeah well that's traumatic experience for sure. He had to walk like two miles to get the real train station House Laureus Anyway. That is a great groundwork and the band walking through mainstream and being able to reform that as a child or young adult. I feel like we've had that mentioned multiple times on the show that people really connect with that. Was it just the allure of walking down main street or was at the opportunity to see backstage areas and see how our production has put on from their standpoint. You know it's funny it's now it's I look back on it and they say wow. What a great opportunity. That was and what a great thing we got to do. But if I'm being honest when I was twelve I just wanted to go to the parks like I want an extra trip and I. I just wanted to be able to go. My parents weren't always willing to go so Back then it was for that but now when I look back on and I was thinking about this last night. That was a great experience and something that you can't really recreate an opportunity. That only comes once in a lifetime and I was really lucky to have it so at the time just a trip but now the ability to walk down main street and performed something that I really cherish that memory. That's right yeah there was. It's interesting because for us. It was more of a social thing rather than the performance aspect. You know you get to go with your friends down to Disneyland on a few day trip me Miss School in the you get to perform as well but you really mostly in the parks apart from that. What few hours that? You have to leave aside for the performance for me you know. One of our favorite ride's together as wash mountain with my friends on that trip I was able to go on for the first time because prior to that I was scared of the drop. And so things like that hard. The the The memories that stick with me and make it a more meaningful experience overall and it was cool though because we get too. What about behind toon town? Well we did it twice and I think we entered through different areas each time but one of them is through through two talented through frontier land. We went through like backstage area. Very cool yeah. I feel like if I was in middle school. That would definitely be motivation to learn to plan instrument. I was definitely not motivated to do anything like that. Color Guard. Oh yeah that's yeah that's maybe more my speed while I mean. I don't remember the instrument I learned to be clear so it's not like I it's not like I had motivation to continue through. So you guys have a long history together. Have you been friends since middle school or did you just kind of like pick up in college again? Yeah so he We lived literally like around the corner from each other entire lives from the from the day. We were born three days apart board as apart. And then you know we've lived close to each other ever since then basically and then we went to the same elementary school which was really close and we were in the same grades and all of that. We didn't have any classes together until Really until band but we knew of each other.

Daniel Goleman: The Mind and Meditation
"I have the pleasure of speaking with Daniel Goldman to claim psychologist and author of several books including the international bestseller emotional intelligence. Why Can Madam Molden? 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
"llamas" Discussed on But Why: A Podcast for Curious Kids
"The other questions we often get about llamas are whether or not they spit. This is very common. That people often think that llamas are mean and spitting animals but in fact they're similar to dogs. How dogs bite when they are afraid. Or when they're upset is the same reason why llamas might fit because they are uncertain about you so just as you should ask an owner of a Dog. Whether it's okay for you to pet them you should always ask an owner of Allama if you can pet there lama because some lamas love to be touched and are very social and very friendly but some lamas prefer their personal boundaries face and these are the ones that tend to spit on us. Thank you so much for such a fun question about Llamas. Thanks Shannon up next a question about Jellyfish Mitch. I'm a half and I laugh at Brooklyn you can get a first grade and my question is why are Jellyfish Jelly or RDBMS Jelly? Why did he have bigger? I WanNa talk yet. I love all the places. Your mind went in that one question. Jellyfish are not made of Jelly. Well at least not the kind. You might eat on toast or in a sandwich. Jellyfish are actually ninety five percent water. That's what allows them to float around in the water. Currents the National Ocean Service says jellyfish are made out of three layers an outer layer called the epidermis which is the same name as our outer layer our skin by the way the middle layer is where most of the stuff that looks like Jelly is. It's called the mess. Oh Glee Yeah. And it's actually a thick elastic jelly. Like tissue not really jelly. The inside layer is called the gastro durmus. And that's where digestion happens. They have Stinger so they can catch and paralyze their prey. The things they eat so while you might want to touch them and they might look nice and soft and squishy and slimy. It's really not a good idea. Those stings can actually be quite painful or even dangerous. I was actually stung by jellyfish. Lots of them. When I was snorkeling in the Galapagos Islands off the coast of Ecuador wants and I can attest though stings really hurt and now a question about much bigger land animals and they're very small frenemies. Hi My name is Lucas. I'm sixty years old from candidate. Vodka Georgia and my question is why are elephant. Afraid OF MICE. Hi My name is cree nine five. I read in Westwood California and I want to know why elephants scared of mice. Are Elephants afraid of mice? Our answer comes from Peter Rig. He works with the elephant listening project. That's a group based at the Cornell Lab of ornithology in New York state elephants afraid of mice only in the cartoons. Elephants aren't afraid of very much except humans and with good reason. Humans are one of the biggest threats to elephants and their habitat now. It's time to tackle this question from emily. I'm nine years old and I'm from Riverdale New York and my question is why when we're tired we on my name is. Maya. I'm twelve years old. I am from California. Why is contagious? And here's olive who six years old and lives in Seattle Washington and she joins Maya in wondering I. It can pay. Our answer. Comes from pediatrician Dr Lori Racia- even talking about yawning up to fifty percent of people will yon just hearing that someone's talking about yawning so it's really really interesting so this question is actually one of the harder questions that I was asked because there's much that's not understood about yawning and there's several different ideas of why people yawn and so I'm going to share those with you but I hope you're not disappointed if I can't give you. This is why for sure So one thought is that there's some belief that even the very earliest human so even before there was like a a real communication system of language that Early humans would yawn in that maybe was a way for them to signal to each other. That maybe Their level of alertness that they weren't going to be able to watch out for the big Predator animals or something like that or to signal that Maybe it was then time for everyone to go to sleep. Maybe it was the way in early. Humans of coordinating some of their sleep activity. One theory also says that it may just be simply mimicking behavior. And so I don't know if any of you have noticed that if you are you see someone and they are smiling that you are likely to smile back right. And so that's just a simple mimicking behavior. I don't think we're telling ourselves. Oh I really. This is one of those times. I must smile but just seeing the human face with a smile often causes us to smile back. And that's a very good reason for all of us to smile as much as we can. Because I think it's important for all of us to do our part to try to keep people feeling positive and happy. Another factor is that your age plays a role so even though babies soon as they're born they can yawn. They don't have contagious yawn. So it doesn't seem that humans become contagious. Yonkers until we're about age four. The other interesting thing to to know is that humans and other social mammals so animals that kind of work together or have some kind of communication with each other are the only living things that we know of that. Have contagious yawns. So it does seem to be something important to our social structure or how we are with other people. But I can't tell you exactly why that happens. The last thought that I wanted to share with you that some researchers feel that yawning may have a role in helping to keep the brains temperature down so that sounds kind of funny how that could happen. But if you think about it. Our bodies are about ninety eight. Ninety eight and a half degrees Fahrenheit and are outside world is usually cooler than that so when we yawn we bring in a lot of cool air into our mouth above our mouth. Is the Pallet but above that is the sinuses and actually then the base of the brain. So when you're bringing in cold air you may be Having a little bit of a cooling effect on the brain now when I have a fever. I don't feel like a yawn more but I. I don't know if I've really thought about that. But that's another interesting interesting. Thought about what yawning could do. I find it amazing that just thinking about someone else. Yawning can make you. Yon Sometimes my dog yawns and I've noticed that ion right back. I put on my mum gluts and headed out to the Barnyard to answer one last question. Today's episode formula. I am full and from the question. Me Mina say your question. How do you pick? Who sometimes you guys ask questions that surprise even your parents. But it's a good question lineup. Pigs poop the same way we do and for the same reasons. Pigs eat a lot of different things and as their bodies process all the good stuff the vitamins and nutrients they need to function. There's also some stuff that's not absorbed by the body it's basically garbage and your body needs to take out the trash so after you or your favorite poor seen. That means pig friend. Chew your food. It goes down into your stomach where some acid helps break it up into even smaller pieces. And then the food travels through the intestines. The intestines are like a long skinny tube. That twists and turns inside your body as the food goes through your intestines. Those good nutrients are getting sucked. Out and the time the food gets pushed through the end of the intestines. What's left is poop so just like you. The pig gets a sensation that it needs to go to the bathroom and outcomes the poop. One big difference though pigs don't bother finding a toilet. They just go wherever they please. That's it for this episode. We really wish by the way that we had the time and resources to answer all of your questions. Do you have any idea how many you've sent us? What's your guess? You all have sent us more than six cows questions since this podcast started. Oh and you know what melody and I just realized it's our birthday. This show launched four years ago this week.

'Do Skunks Like How They Smell?' And Other Silly Questions
"We'll start out with a question from Lilly she asks. Why do pickles and cactuses like each other? I will admit lily. I've never thought about the fact that pickles kind of resemble some CACTI but now that you mention it they do and if you've ever picked a cucumber straight from the garden you might know that some varieties of cucumber have little spikes on them just like a cactus. If you're wondering. Pickles are cucumbers that have been pickled in vinegar brine. You can make other kinds of pickled vegetables too but let's just keep it simple and assume lillies talking about pickled cucumbers to make things even more confusing. There's actually a cactus called cucumber. Cactus and I think that cactus looks less like a cucumber than some other kinds of cactus but back to the question cucumber and CACTUS are both plants. But they're in different plant families. They're not very closely related. Cucumbers are in the Gourd family related to things like pumpkins squash and watermelon CACTI. That's the plural of CACTUS. Cacti are succulents plants that store water not all succulents are CACTI. But that's the family there in so I guess the fact that both of these plants look of alike is random but there are actually in nature a lot of reasons that things that aren't related lookalike. Sometimes it's because there are patterns that repeat through nature and we see them in all kinds of objects. Another reason is something called convergent evolution. We're different organisms like plants or animals develop similar traits similar. Looks or ways of doing things even though they're not related often it's because they have had to adapt to similar environments and they both did it in the most effective and efficient way even though they were doing it separately. I don't know if that's what's happening with pickles. Cacti but I think it could be. I'm GONNA keep thinking about this and maybe we can circle back around to it in a future episode. If we find out anything interesting at any rate really good observation lily. Hi My name is Jesse. I live in Charlottesville Vermont Annoying Sheldon I would like to know what our googlers made out of you declan. Don't tell anyone but I actually don't think your question is all that gross. It's always good to know what's in your body right. Put simply buggers are just dried or congealed snot. So what's not? Snot is more politely and scientifically known as Mucus Producing Mucus. Is One of the ways. Your body stays healthy. Your body produces a leader of mucus every day in your nose your sinuses and your digestive tract mucus sticky and it helps to keep all the dirt dust and pollen out of your lungs so the mucus in your nose likes to hang around and stick to the little hairs on the inside of each nostril. That's how it can catch some of that dust and dirt that you're breathing in so you don't get it deeper into your body and sometimes that Mucus Kinda dries up there and it forms boogers. Mostly it's okay to just leave the boogers alone. You know but if you need to get rid of them user tissue. Here's a question from Bennett. Employers now eleven San Carlos Santana California in my question is. How do you fish C. Underwater without goggles? Our answer comes from Joe Blasi of the New England aquarium in Boston so animals have. Is that our builds in a way that is best for their environment. So your eyes designed to see an air. And that's the way that they work best so with you. Swim underwater with no goggles. Your is can't see really well so what happens when you put on goggles. There's a little teeny tiny bit of air. That's trapped in the goggles with your eyes so you can still see underwater. Now Fish. Don't need goggles. Because there is designed to work under water they still have the same parts that you do. There's a cornea an iris and pupil The way that the light gets in and bounces around. And then transmits a signal to their brain so they can see things. I'm and some fish can actually see really well considering the refresh But there is designed to work much better in a water environment rather than an Air Environment. One of the reasons that humans blink is to keep our eyes wet so do fish need to blink at all. They don't fish. Don't have eyelids blinking necessary. Whoa fish don't have eyelids cool now onto skunks hi. My name is enchanted. Seven years old. I live in Melbourne California. My question is like the smell of themselves. That's a good question and we found just the right person to answer it. Mary Holland is a naturalist and she was actually the very first guest on. But why more than three years ago discounts like the smell themselves as often as I've encountered skunks and even been spray by one. It has never occurred to me to wonder how the smell affects the skunk. I've always been more concerned with how it affects me. According to Dr Jerry. Tegu an expert on skunks and head of the Dragoon Institute for the betterment of skunks and skunk reputations skunks. Do not enjoy the smell of their own spray or the spray of other skunks. Skunks rarely spray each other or other animals. They only have a certain amount of spray inside them and once it's all used up. They must go several days without it while their body manufacturers more during this time they are defenceless so they only spray another animal. If they are seriously threatened. So if you don't WANNA get sprayed. Mary says it's best not to scare a skunk. They don't want to spray you. Prior to spraying a skunk will give ample warning to its enemy by stamping his front feet. If this is ignored then skunk will spray as a last defense when Scott Spray. They rarely get any on themselves though. They can tolerate their own smell. They do not appreciate getting it in the face and is from another skunk. A Scott. Sense of smell is even stronger than humans so if anything the skunk suffers more than anyone who has had the misfortune of being sprayed if a skunk does encounter counter the spray of another skunk. It will rub its face in the dirt sneeze or try to groom itself to get rid of the sprays odor

It's nuanced atom. No it's not you know doesn't have to be an exact fit but you say yeah. Yeah it's a great. It's a great piece of simple sample dialogue fallen.

I discovered a one man play on Netflix featuring the late Leonard. Nimoy as the van Gogh Circa Nineteen eighty-one. I was surprised to cheated the name. Bonnie Burns as the producer. A suppressive named Bonnie Burns's producer. I am surprised right now. Do in fact I thought I may have a faint and slightly distracting crackling noise during being the monologue. I just had to write to ask if this is the very same Bonnie Burns. That is now Paula's manager Bonnie were you a in in one word order less. Were you a producer of that particular movie and I directed that was cut. Yeah he said and I directed it so you directed dominant Vincent so many times they had they. Had you know Leonard Nimoy would be AH talking about his painting in the potato people and all and then he would just go bunny shut the fuck up. Yeah and the famously STOIC. Leonard Nimoy Spock distraction by an animated film narrated by Leonard Nimoy. He was on stage as van. Ango it was a theater pressure. Oh a one man play okay at the Guthrie okay fantastic. It was a one man play and Bonnie Bonnie directed the whole cast really. I heard she had a falling out with one of them. Boy The cast party. It was so exciting. Yeah he's seven that one cast member that would not speak to Bonnie Apple. Yeah later new boy was there. I don't think I knew that I didn't you. You have fans out there luke. Thomas wrote to say.

Thanks Okay and Jean embry wrote I love when he got to talk more. Bonnie are we serious. You know what what are you. Nobody's doing with your time. Apparently it I think you have to find work closer to home. I seriously seriously do. Apparently Bonnie rights to our facebook page under pseudonym nineteen facebook. Yes Kevin from San Francisco also came to Bonnie's defense. He wrote quote quote. You read an email from Norma who expressed her displeasure with captain crinkle story of uploading all his new hit single to itunes. That was one of my favorite episodes to date and I listen to that particular segment over and over again hilarious and I always love and captain crinkle comes to the microphone seat. Because and we've been talking to you because Bonnie loves it too she does. She'll wander over near the microphone and we have to take out a spray bottle. AH WE'RE USING TO KEEP pod but from tune through the wires and here's another one. This message was directed to me. Dear Adam Adam. I haven't read this dear out of an episode featuring Grammarian Julia Callaghan. I was thrilled to hear Paula. Bring up her high school English teacher. Judy plot pollen I both went to Lincoln Sudbury regional high school. Although not at the same time and I also had mrs plot as an English teacher therefore you can imagine my dismay and dare. I say disgust Gust when you suggested that judy plot was a subpar English teacher kind of down it while I confess that there are many moments when you are the voice of reason on this podcast this absolutely not one of them. I am writing to offer a full throated defense of this brilliant educator as spent the better part of a half hour writing and rewriting praises of this brilliant woman wearing. I wasn't quite doing her justice however I know you like to get to the point so I'll keep it brief late for that. Judy Vodka is hands down one of the best teachers I've ever had my entire life both in and out of the classroom full stop. I am sorry to inform you that you grab the wrong end of the stick on this one. I forgive. Give you for your ignorance but now you know sincerely Kristen Laurie. LS Alum and comma enthusiast. I think of that is her way of saying Adam Talbert Bear Oh. She didn't resort to such via language policy. That's that's really offensive. Yeah sorry sorry dare you. Well I apologize and you you know what Kristen your letter is very well written so I would say that Clearly MS plots teaching took a hold with you and maybe the problem was as policy that she didn't go to class very often she probably. Yeah Yeah was my mistake. Yeah I'm not going to class although I love it that she says both in and out of the classroom. I don't know what that meant. I'm not going to suggest that immediately popped into my head because then I get another letter from Kristen. Laurie you've come down on the Ron said of Clinton of course Larry Physical mental history on this one. Yeah you know Judy. Plot was great teacher. Okay Okay Great. I love it that she calls her. Mrs Because in my day in the late seventies we call their teachers by their first name. Really yeah boy. They shut that door. Yeah they did yeah. My kids have reverted their teachers. Your Majesty but now I I'm talking about in high school in Elementary School. It's always Your Majesty. It was yeah it was Mrs Mrs Mrs Miss White and organises bump and Miss Carter. I had missed. Mrs Bump was the best teacher. Her kindergarten teacher. Hey mycerinus she broke my finger you had come. I got a request for political candidates. His name is Cohen Wilhelm and he wrote a Hi guys. My Name Is Colin William and I'm a huge fan of the show. I've always loved Paula. And I think it's great that Adams on every show to for cuts. I am launching Twenty Twenty Colorado State House campaign as Democrat here in Western Colorado. I I personally love song. Not butterfinger and agree with the song on many levels. I think it would make an excellent walk on Song for some campaign events so my ask is would probably it'd be willing to let me use the song and a few campaign events would you. I think I'd be flattered. Okay absolutely right into it for you or everybody Colin when you can download the not. My butterfinger song on Itunes or wherever you get your music. It's called not my butterfinger by Paula poundstone yeah. Yeah it's on it's on I tunes and and good luck in your campaign calling. Although I don't know why you have to pick up that same calumny that everybody launches about Adam felber on every episode Kalemie Candy Adams. Welcome this is called. Who have not spoken to you for a while? And what are the things I've noticed. Oh you and Mike Boom boom have become. So you're really you out of your mic and all that would separate but lockstep with one another. I what is happening such a friendship unfold. It's not a French. Why arguing with a hand puppet over an imaginary caller what I said? Why am my arguing with a hand puppet about an imaginary damnable calumny culpepper? Don't have anywhere to beat tonight. Sure your husband Mrs You. Ah Nobody. Listens Bala poundstone waiting for Tom. Hanks to show up at Tom. Hanks as we learned from Paula is not going to show up. He says he's asked in order to appear on. Nobody was isn't pounds or Tom. Hanks wonderful wonderful actor has has insisted listed Ruby settee dress. He has requested that you were an odd sweater vest and then we have pedals available to him. That seems like a reasonable request to me. It's it's I don't talk to Tom. Hanks all right then. Well then you don't have to be there that night. You could spend a a quiet evening at home with captain culpepper. I'll spend a quiet.

Yeah exactly actually there f word whereas whereas racist motherfuckers fine. Okay but fair. Who boy opprobrium you'll be steeped it'll be over and you'll be gone you? Should you use do Eskimos really have. And they're not asking US do anyway. Really have five different words for snow. That's one of the things. The more extreme form of that claim is usually something like that they have one hundred workers always like this has been debunked. Yes it's it's thoroughly has been debunked. Yeah there's a lot that's been written about this and this is something that somehow got into the popular imagination and the media and but no this is is because it makes intuitive sense. Here's how they live. Among a lot of snow. They had inuit snow naming contest. I think the way we've had a contest. Yeah no they they. Did it live in a town hall and guys nice to students staged going snow. Yeah so yeah and then finally frozen I. Hey we have A. We have ten entrance. We have a ten way. There's just no I heard it was like fifty fifty different words for snow because they saw so much of it there to think of different ways of describing different kinds of using. That's absolutely a myth that's been debunked a WHO debunked it that I would have to check the article. Wasn't you know linguist was linguistics. You know if they would. It's been a little bit more fucking time. Yeah we wouldn't be mainly schoolyard rumors instead of chasing a ridiculous theory like that They should have been going after those seven thousand languages before they're all gone precisely. Yes I think while we've been here today. Oh three languages must they are languages. These are disappearing really quickly. Aren't they are disappearing very very quickly now is that because of the cultural assimilation going. On or yeah you have. The rise is of enormous global languages. Like if you think of the spread of English like English is trailing everywhere everywhere. Yeah it's the Lingua Franca of the world. Yes exactly and so if you think about. Before before. Europeans arrived in the Americas. There was tons huns of linguistic diversity here but now these communities have really been reduced in size and there there are now attempts to revitalize American language some native American languages so there is an effort to buck the trend but yeah most people are switching to dominant languages for various reasons. Would you say that Mynah birds and parrots. We're not as entertaining before humans could talk. You got that's an interesting question. I guess. Could I'd come back with his tainting. The WHO've everybody loves to hear Parrot. There's no everybody around. Yeah well there could have been people. But they didn't talk uh-huh were pre-verbal people with pre-verbal man less entertained by parents wow imitating if it wasn't language then car alarms. Yeah actually. I think we've solved this one without our linguists man. Jesus so your the professor yes. What time do you go in in the morning? About eight thirty. After I dropped my daughter off at school I usually get into the office about eight thirty and you drop her off at a time just before eight just before eight and then is your long thirty minute drive to your job from there. I take the bus the bus Russia and because you were going to. I just think that there's time for you to work in a okay all right well. Thank you Dr Goals and all I can say is word up Paula. What advice based on this can you give our listeners about words in linguistics long you can? I have some wordy music to underscore this summary. There are an estimated seven foul languages but many not been described their only seven thousand linguists presumably busy. They're probably probably commuting farther than they need to when they watch youtube. They never skip the ads. A lot of the must be disorganized house. They spend a lot of time looking for the keys. They don't alphabetize. They lose socks easily. Play a lot of monopoly on those wear glasses. Rarely early realized there on the top of their head. I learned so much from David Goldstein. For example the sounds of vowels can change over time which means that in the course of my lifetime. I can go from being to being who wrote being hot wing to being hate in and ended up being really Dr. David Goldstein is associate professor of linguistics at UCLA. Okay David thank you so much for coming by Greg Facet gumming up. We opened up the listener. Mail bag and hear from you. The nobody's out in the world.

"So basically people have sort of set of sounds stored in their brains like you know the sounds of English the same way Adam does and you also have can think of it as like a set of operations on those sounds that make them pronounced in very particular accuser ways and humans are very good at picking up very subtle distinctions in language. That can maybe suggest where a person in his from or from from Wisconsin. Exactly exactly yes. Yes and so- accents and everybody has an accent. This is some people think that only certain groups certain people have accents that is decidedly not true. Everybody nobody has an accent. And it's just the particular inventory of sounds that we have in our heads and how we produce them and over time these exchange and so for instance. The way we speak English now was not the way that Shakespeare spoke and the way that Shakespeare spoke was not the way that chaucer spoke. And that you could think of that is a change in accent. I mean linguists tend to use the word phonology and phonetics to talk about. How sounds change over my house so they don't you have linguists over all the time you know and the minute I hear phonology? I'm like you take that right outside this house. That is not who we are. Who have over there you you know? I try to be a nice hostess but there comes a point. There does if you know what I mean. When I was in high school I was asked to memorize the beginning of chaucer's what did he write that? The thing the Canterbury Tales by teacher or just a dare from what if their kid and I ended up. Both sprinting my tongue and and getting stuck to a fireball. I've I tried to. I tried to read the Canterbury Tales. It just did nothing for me in it's original form it's almost Illegible and I had to memorize it in old English. How did my English teacher? Mr Pierre Caskey no the pronunciation in the first place. Oh that's a great question because I had to remember something like one in a pillow with shirts Ceuta. Yeah was the first is line. Yeah so much have to the root something like some kind of course. Yeah of course. Yeah that sound right to you. Absolutely Mr Pierpont EXP- Hausky. Yeah expected that of every student Mr Cokie he did. You know who can do the Canterbury Tales. Great Mike Michael Mike Boom. I'm pretty sure you can get the phone. Adam really get it. Hello Mike Mike. Yeah Mike. What's your last name Nice? I thought we were friends. Mike Mike Boom. Hey remember that teacher we add. What's his name? Mr Pierre Hausky. What an asshole that got but he did make as memorize the Canterbury Tales? I reverse the year before you still know it. You did Mike First of all. I don't remember you at all for Mister Huskies. Classes were Miss Jones Swansea. I didn't have Ms Tuten Swan you know my i. I don't think we know each other all so go ahead. Recite the Canterbury Tales from me my stuff on my mind so what did you call about. It I'd say goodbye. I say good talking to you again. No you won't okay goodbye. Hi David how did Mr Caskey no so. We use a variety of methods so sometimes we can tell from the way. Words are written how they may have been pronounced. Sometimes for instance we can tell from rhyming patterns like if certain vowels rhyme at some point but not later on which is how we know that in Canterbury Tales and the example I gave sweet rhymes with route in their old pronunciation. That could be. I think I I'm not sure I'm falling. Explain that again. So the sounds of vowels change over time and so to take Adams example sweet and route those does do not Ryan do not rhyme. You are absolutely right about that but it could be the case that at one point in the past they did rhyme but this would be an example of how sounds could diverge over time so they once rhyme so they were once the same more or less and then over time they could have diverged. I would have to sit and think about this particular example dredging from Three D. I could be totally wrong about it. Yeah there's a possibility awesome -bility there. Let me ask you this are there. Does every language curse words so there are about set. We've guess we estimate that there are about seven thousand languages in the world spoken right now. And we haven't documented them all and also about half of them Eh documented them all that means there are languages out there that linguists are still working on. Your child was all all this focus on Syntax and semantics of the archaic should be a European languages in particular Latin and Greek sense Anatolian languages. There's only seven thousand languages. I mean in the scope of things. That's not that many. How many linguists are there? You got me. That's a great question. Listen I would say everybody just took one language we could have this thing knocked off honestly. I show to help language dot the cause of language documentation. Didn't you all work like really short hours. Yeah I feel like you guys are kind of slacking. Yeah I mean some of them. We've already found like. Is there some asshole that just keeps going. I found French. I've found friends. We already know about French shit and I spent all that time three days later. I found French. Yeah exactly no we already know about French. Go speaking England. So let's go back to our actual question which is about the curse harsh words. Yeah so so. We don't know about every language that's out there but we have China. Don't many of you done how many of you have been described. How many languages seven thousand languages out of those? How many have have been described? That's actually what she's asking. I would say somewhere in the thousands but the the problem would hope about half of them. So we're living being in an age where linguistic diversity is rapidly dying out so I think it's your ass is I think one of the few just waiting it out you're like what willing to subcontinent alone for another ten years. Exactly that's GonNa Knock six hundred languages right now. It's just going to parties like beach volleyball media counter. Ticking Down John is a language dies floor of the stock market. It's got one more speaker and he's very sick. Yeah Thirsty some number that was astronomical and who could possibly lawsuit even grasp that but seven thousand and just have longer out. What would you saying? I'm frankly wondering.

"Know. Oh all right so so back to the the issue of these calls are starting to really get to Paulie guy. You're popular guy. Carry that phone with you. It's going to ring. Yeah all right so I have a song and you're right. My skills are limited and so we asked our listeners. You you know. Why don't you take all our vocabulary? Put Him in a song. The will you've been doing with their themes and submit them to play on the show. It'll be a little bit like like our theme song contest and nobody has anything and partly because it is challenging very hard thing to do. There's a bigger reason though. We have to know what the former of vocabulary words where exactly we. We didn't give them that. Yeah so basically. We were asking do us a favor. Listen to all existing sixty one episodes of nobody listened to Paula. poundstone pull the vocabulary word out of each. If we were doing vocabulary words that point and then write a song and I feel like that was too high a bar even a listener has to make some effort Adam. Yeah no I think. I think they've done quite enough for us to be honest with you and all they're getting return. A bar of fresh signed hotel soap. Yeah by the way. We sent a bar of fresh hotel soap to listeners covering citizen Tony Anita Hill is usually does everything right. She's fantastic but she actually came posted to any paid for it and since then. He has been our benefactor. He has not paid for everything he really wanted. You know the Blumenthal who that come from. I'm guessing Tonio Daddy. Daddy bet you'll get the receipt. Johnny Johnny War Scott came from. Yeah I want to thank you so much see. Francis don't want to argue about that what I want to tell our listeners is that we have done you a service rather Tony Anita Hall has and if you were to look on our facebook page right now. Yeah we'll see the whole it's a whole list of vocabulary words. You don't have to use them on the song but we've just made it easier for you so what I've been doing since I began writing the vocabulary words songs every week. I just add on the the new word and it goes something like this. This week's word is program meaning disgrace. A reproach arising from conduct considered urge shameful. Last week's word was clack when I think back to noun meaning individual group hired to applaud performance as in Theater the week before that the word which horror loge. It's timepiece a clock watcher hourglass the week before that the word was probably did he a noun meaning moral excellence integrity. The week before that we had new Qatari. It's an adjective that means inconsequential worthless. Sludge having no force in operative Adam didn't think it was the right word to describe. The incorrectly prescribed antibiotic for my bladder infection action. But I did I did. I did stake you take very much. That's a smattering. I was GONNA ask laundry in the next few the up on that. I bet that really sealed. I want to introduce a new word Amorphous Amorphous. There is simply no shape or recognizable repeatable melody tonight. Watch this. This week's Word is opprobrium. Yeah that's about as far as you know and then the end I that kids. That's the only replicable part of your song. No that's not true to after my song is when I had a conversation with a captain. Critical my manager Buddy Burns. Yes she suggested that I I try something more reggae with it. I was on that conversation. I thought your answer was great. Remember your answer was no what did I say you said. I do not have the desire or ability to do that. Funding and so it will not be doing that under that. Stop her own. Oh No no if we were to bring it into Mike Right now and don't even think about getting up. Bonnie she would say I think it would be a pretty good idea.

Yea Is it's called the skyrocket bloom doll they start out looking like a potted plant and kids use a little. Cute watering can to make the doll spring out out of the dirt. And because we're such a visually oriented audio podcasts. We're going to do that right. Yeah we're GONNA make the right pink plastic pot. Yeah pull off the top of it right Adams Adams pulling off the top of it. It's like a foil thing that would be on the top of it. Looks like there's another thing I guess I have to pull this off to write. I don't know why I'm flipping it up. Because what was it something now. I'm going to water it this lap. I take this adorable. Watering can all right so now. There's little pink plastic water and Ken that Tony Anita Hill's does hull has filled with water. Adam is watering the top of what appears to be a plastic thing. Is it not it does so there is in growing my God. Oh my God the miracle of life. It's a pink doll. I guess I watched my two kids be born in. It's not doc totally unlike that it broke its way through. I'm not convinced this is all right. Now we're now. We're putting our putting our putting water on it I think. That's a breached thing to reach. Berg preached all right so it it looks a little bit like a pink version of the of the weird sculpture that this star of of close encounters of the third kind kept making yes it is still blooming. Let's let it bloom. It looks like pink. Plato has come up through this. Well the hair clad. That's the hair of the slow rise foam and when you water the plant. It looks as if you're doll is blooming from the pot. They cost less than ten dollars. Well I can't see why. How much to Deposi pillows cost twelve now? There are twenty two different bloom dolls and as we know an infinite number of possible pussy pillows and once you collect a couple you can take the foam hair off and change it out with your other boom dolls after toy blooms you could open up the pot and find a little mini friend and some stickers to decorate with. Oh thank goodness you can see a child having hours of fun with such a thing. Yeah well it's going to. I assume it's GONNA keep blooming during the course of this. Show it because if this is a terrible toy. We're going to let Tony Ten doll while we continue to talk Tony you could make that suck less boy. Yeah seems it seems like keep it away from the Llama. Seems like Oh my God. Anthony Brought Allama all right. That's just weird. What is it with him and has become nice guy in the world but apparently feels the need to? He's brings in. We don't even know where he gets to be fair. Usually they're wild animals. The Knicks I believe lamas domesticated animals. So that's a step forward at least spent because it just spit on me or is that what's going on ten should should Adama. That'd be eating the Foam Blumenthal Erie come come. Should the draw shouldn't eat the doll foam. Well no no animals should ever eat plastic foam now. It's too darn zt. Well this one would be a free roaming Lama not in the studio.

This one's he he's had a pretty good life pretty good for him. But to answer your question and they eat primarily like grass lichens and shrubs native shrubs from where they're good to their domesticated animal. They're not anthony.

Thank you Paula. And thank you to tonight's house band returning champion Fiddle Blair Longo Ju- thank you so much razor. Have you so Paula. How is your line of poundstone pussy pillows go the first night that we sold them? They flew off the shelf because there is no show. They flew Off The table because on one side. There's a cat joke that I have hand written previously. And then on the other side I can autograph it custom custom autograph at People's cats. Okay and either cabinet filled pillows. Yes and they have gromit on them so that you could tell you you could a string to it and tug it around. Are you calling them councils pussy pillows at the concerts I haven't yet. I can't see that I mind me and Tony Anita Hall that's become I'm the de facto name of it our social media presence full of it and I did an interview this morning with. NPR Station. In Florida I think it was the lady asked me something again. I mentioned that cat toys and That I said my partner Adam. Call Adam felber. WHO's on every show? I said Calls them poundstone. Don't Pussy pillows and we talked for a while. And then she said I'm going to have to get permission from an that's weird because people call cats pussies they do yeah or pussycats. I don't see why I don't see why either I just loved that. Some sort of tongue in cheek offhand. During the first time talked about this on the podcasts couple of weeks ago is now becoming more or less semi official name of that product. Yeah well you know when I first met at a lot of listeners. Don't know this but my name was Clara Clara budget budget memory and Adam referred to me. Is Paula poundstone did people's puzzle to what and that's how I would happen. So they flew off that and Bonnie Kevin Argue about this sort of thing all the time because she tends to take a small amount of data points and draw a lot of conclusions. That is an understatement. Almost I would say she takes x one data point. Yeah answers everything. Well and I tried to do that here because we sold out. We had twenty on the first night. I forget what tone but I sold out of them. Blake before I was done with that Knights meet and greet where I so so based on that data point Bonnie went ahead and not just one point point five million dollars in the house. Bill me I was like yeah this is it does it podcast no more I got. Yeah I'm hooking my at the subsequent gigs as well. It's still slow down a little bit. Well I don't think we really advertising advertising. We'll on the show last week. We're talking about him up top now. I'm sure you're next. Show there's GonNa they're gonNA fly off and I just want to point out to people. People have been writing in and asking where they can get one at the moment. It's only available at live Paula poundstone events on the website. We're GONNA sell through the website. We are going to come to the day day now. Part of the problem with that is my assistant Wendell who wonder works for me. But he doesn't really know that and so he held the oldest. Is Wendell. A cat behavior does sound kind of feeling when windows by beloved assistant and he's Great. He's done a wonderful to love. But woody will just put the Kabosh on things. Subtypes right is like we're not shown those over the web sites. He doesn't get to say that does he knows he doesn't but what he does. So what I decided is that I would maybe at a little bit of time. Go by before I broach the subject again because he in fairness this doesn't sound like good businesswoman in practices right here No. I'm not very good worried that I'll offend my assistant so I'm not going to ask him to make more of the product could and you don't want to shove him over the but in fairness to Wani's worked a lot at the design. Okay okay like for example. I made the original design. They're really rectangle shape. But what we didn't know in the beginning is is just along the outside just one cm or did you turn it. So He's knowing these suckers close. He's he's sewing them. We have a factory. Henry Ford is set up something in my son's bedroom tonight and poor window. He's tried to trying to get the time. It takes to make each one down because because otherwise you got to charge like fifty bucks pussy pillow in order to make a profit right so if they had a tag pounds Pussy Bilas they'd sell even faster. Yeah I wouldn't connect Wendell. We'll see if he can do that. Yeah Yeah I'll put it a call to so all right. So one of the things. Is he figured out that if you saw the seams in it right and you get get to now. You need to put the catnip in but you don't want to take it off the sewing machine because it's too hard to put it back on so he's trying to figure out. Got a way to get the CATNIP in there without taking the thing off conveyor belt of some sort of like a plastic tube. Yeah and he's got like black long and stuff he's having a hard nipple. Yeah I said nip long and then and then he came up with another a highly which is so I come home yesterday. And he's working on it and he's taken a thing of stick deodorant he's taken the deodorant out and then scrubbed it with baking soda because Deodorant has a smell in this early into it precisely so Danny puts catnip inside the Empty Not Stick Deodorant Dispenser. Okay because there's a bar at the bottom that's slides up and pushes you put it up. And so he's using got and then he decided it's not long enough so now he he well he has. Tony Need Hall to go to Walmart and get a twenty five percent more continuing. Yeah but this is a sort of and then he's a really sounds super scattershot scattershot at all best guy. No I know handle handle. It really sounds like he's just sort of like I. I'm sure there's a long history of people stuff and she had into toys and sewing them close but I'm not looking into that. I'm going to go buy some deodorant. Odorant no he's. He's a chip flower. They may he's breaking his own trail. The Not always what you want business. We have thirteen catch so the other thing is. He's put down these demo models on the living room floor and he's concerned that the CATNIP is GonNa get stale until he's like we're not selling if the cat nip get stale. We're just not doing it. And so he doesn't particularly like cats. Does he know he loves cats. So we put we put these. He's still on the floor and then he every time he walks. Thanks to your living room because they're not rubbing on it. There's not they're not rubbing you gotta tell the cats once they had like ten minutes of NIP. They're done for a while yeah for like hours. Yeah well he really wants to create addicts and I love. I love that. What has happened at all? This has happened because the executive producer of wait. Wait don't tell me Doug Berman. Thought it'd be an awesome idea to send you a garage full of CATNIP thirty five pounds of Katrina's a gift and yeah and then I was like what am I going to do. Thirty five pounds and that's when poundstone industries went into production of council busy building guys. Christmas is coming out or is think about it although don't go to our website 'cause we don't know.
