"Season two of Emily in Paris. When Emily in Paris viewers last encountered the titular heroine, she was juggling a demanding boss, the challenges of navigating a new city and some very over the top fashion choices. The first season ended with the cheery American played by Lily Collins, getting entangled, somewhat by accident. In a love triangle involving her neighbor, hot chef Gabriel, Lucas bravo, and his ex-girlfriend, Emily's friend Camille, Camille razat. Season two, which dropped on Netflix on December 22nd, has plenty to offer in the way of this drama. But it also introduces a whole new character Alfie, a new friend turned love interest from Emily's French class, who promises to add some romantic twists. Like Emily, Alfie is an ex pat. He's a British banker has moved to Paris for his job, but unlike the wide eyed protagonist, Alfie is cynical and resistant to the charms of the city. For Lucien laviscount, the 29 year old actor who plays him, this character couldn't be further from reality. Laviscount, who previously appeared in scream queens and Riverdale spinoff Katy Keene, visited Paris for the first time to film Emily in Paris and immediately fell in love with the city. I was charmed the second I got off the plane, he says Paris has my heart. Ahead of season two of Emily in Paris, laviscount spoke to time about giving Gabriel some competition. The challenges of learning French and the part of his personal life that ended up in the show. Time how did you prepare for being a part of Emily in Paris? Lucian levis count. Honestly it happened so quickly, I really didn't have that much time to prepare. I was in New York working on some projects when I got a phone call from my manager saying Darren star wants you to read for Emily in Paris. I dropped everything and sent my audition back within an hour, and then was on Zoom with Darren and lily the next day and in Paris a few days later. As far as getting into character, Alfie's role is to capture the sense of being lonely in a city. When you feel like that, you can become quite bitter, which is why he puts up his guard by being defensive and sarcastic. Then he meets Emily, who he really doesn't take to straight away. He thinks she's just a puppet in her world. But he finds out quickly that she's a boss at her job and she's doing what she loves. Alfie looks at that and he is super impressed. Emily opens up his world and gives him this perspective on what life in Paris can be like, and that's where their friendship blossoms. Obviously, because of that background, Alfie's a little cynical when it comes to the romance of Paris. But by the end, he's fallen in love with both Emily and the city. What was it like for you living and filming in Paris? It was actually my first time in Paris. It was literally like Lucien in Paris. The city is like a huge museum with the roof taken off. Everything is a spectacle. It's got this mystery and culture and this energy that lifts through it. I was just blown away by being there. It sounds like you've adopted Emily's attitude about Paris in real life rather than Alfie's. I like to see the beauty and good in most things until something gives me a reason not to. That's where myself and Alfie differ. The most amazing thing about shooting Emily in Paris is the producers and the team find the most incredible locations. So as much exploring as I could have done, I could have never seen Paris the way the show showed me Paris. Alfie and Emily meet in French class, but she's a little more enthusiastic about learning to speak French than he is. How did you fare with the language during your time there? I really struggled, but I'm such a trier. People were so understanding and I got a lot of smiles and nods. Then everyone just spoke to me in English. Hopefully I'll be back someday. I actually started taking French classes online, so it's going to get better. Alfie is a huge English football enthusiast, and he even plays in a recreational league at one point with Gabriel. Are you a big fan in real life? Do you have a team? I grew up playing. My teams arsenal. They're not doing too great at the moment, but I'll stand by them until the end. Me and Lucas were always talking about football. And then we got told a month into it that they were putting in a scene of us playing. Our mics were live most of the time, so he had little bits and bobs and they manipulated that into stories. The writers were always on the ball, trying to make things as organic and as fresh as they could, so it's great that it fed into our lives a little bit. You're really giving Gabriel a run for his money as Emily's hot love interest this season. Are you ready to be everyone's new crush after the season drops? Really? I just hope I've done a good job more than anything. As for crushes, that'd be lovely. If not, I'll be fine. I'll survive I'll survive. Can we expect to see more of Alfie in Emily's future? That's up to mister Starr. I'm not looking too far ahead for myself. It would be an incredible honor to come back in season three, but if Alfie's journey is up, then I'm just really thankful to be a small part of Emily's journey and the show. I met some incredible friends and learned.

"I think it's really interesting. So i i enjoyed it a lot. Actually i I thought it was pretty funny. But i i think that's supposed to be like sort of wild written in tara's sort of like emo is a little bit more humorous side. Yeah i i really liked it and like that side of it made me a lot more k. More okay with human thrash. Even though it's still like we still have you boy thrasher whatever the fuck you wanna call him but then putting some bore context behind it made me more okay with that skin existing if that makes sense I think it's a really good capstone. Like lor sendoff for thrashes. Well like like he's still alive. He's not really like the fucking reaper of souls anywhere. But he's kinda like fox with like people and yes like sold their souls like do work for them and stuff. It's cool thrill idea cool and that takes us to the lucien dev blog So there there's a problem with lucian in lanes In this is their attempt to To to tone it down So they're lowering his his web base attack damage. I believe this'll be talked about in the future patch. And then adding a new passive where allies that empower him in some fashion Caused him to ottawa attack twice and do magic damage on. This autos makes his next to autos whether that be regular or leitzinger do bonus mattress image. So that as well okay. no no. it's just his next to again whether you have your your double shot up or just. Your standard auto into next auto has an extra passive now that allies gives extra power when he's with allies in the other change being that his damage shifted to scale with but has lower based emmett so once again. The idea behind this is that eighty harry's are more like a late game fantasy type role and lucian mid right now is a istat check and range check every mid later and beat them to the ground so therefore him having less ultimate damage early and more with likely game cribs hit me. He's going to be way less oppressive early game. Mid whereas eighty carries and still shine is a scaling eighty carey y- and they also lowered his base eighty two to push towards that and added a couple other things were like allies can proc his. W so it's advantageous to be near ally right. Allies could already proxies w. Yes but yeah. The movement speed aspect of it but allies can now proc is like new passive like and talk it through pretty anything that would proc airy which is like a huge thing. People talk about before. Is there like oh. This is lame. Because i have to play with the chanter and chanter is only like Allow me to proc minute vengeance passive but they pretty well gone to side like if you heart see see someone. If you like us jargon flag it will proc it like any pretty well. Everything in our anything will knock this new of passive for lucien. So it's just gonna be a huge benefit if you're playing with a support character but not your ash e your ash w will not your ash. Yeah it's nowhere ash support yucky but either the main thing that i really wanted to point out here is. I'm really happy with what they like. Wrote in this step blog i. It's just awesome that they were able to go into why these changes are happening though. Middling lucien isn't a high win rate character by any means even in pro player..

"Didn't really comprehend that she could do all of this and be gone so much and love you right and i feel so badly about this now. I just had no concept of this. As a child. I saw on all these other families with their mom who would go with them to school. I saw my mother once a month because she had to go live at this college campus and just to explain also how unusual this wires during the quarter of lucien in china education stopped my mother. The last grade that she went to before the courtroom dilution was the fifth grade and so she wasn't even supposed to be studying but because of her mother her mother my grandmother smuggled in books that they read by caroline at night and then my mother beat out many many people across the country to be in of the first classes to enter university. She hadn't gone to any any class before she entered university of so because it was such an honor to be able to do that. There was no other option. You just have to live on campus. Of course i understand that now. And i understand also in the. Us by mother was studying for team while also working multiple jobs then we moved to los angeles. She was earning a teaching certificate while working. Which of course. I never saw her but also presented her not being there and as a result of us just not knowing each other wellm. We fought a lot when we did spend time together and it wasn't until she got ill and started going with her to her. Chemotherapy appointments and going to a doctor's visits that we really got to know one another. I'm trying to think about the brothers point of view that she'd sacrifice so much for you and you were just so impatient and angry with her so often. that must've been really hard for her. Though it sounds like she wasn't exactly the huggy touchy feely type of mother. No and i. I mean i said so. Many terrible things to my mother. And i had blocked all out until i wrote this book right because who wants to think about the terrible things that you said your parents where you were young but i remember saying to a mother and i just i cannot believe this because this is so horrible and it's just such an it's i forever if there's listing somewhere. I hope shop. Forgive me for this. I remember saying to her mother. One day i want to be nothing like you and i have tears. Lot is saying this because it's so horrible. I cannot imagine what my mother must have been thinking when she heard this because she was trying to do her best as a working. Mom under very difficult circumstances was trying to keep our family together. I wish for nothing more than for her to somehow known that she has grandchildren. Who would have loved.

"Yeah so so. I think the the the sort of state of the art at the moment is trying to match trying to ask what structures what you know one of the attractions of string theory attempts to convert questions about particle physics into questions about geometry. Right so when i say. The spectrum of low energy particles is tied to the top logical characteristics sort of like immutable characteristics of the extra dimensions. And you know what particular geometry they have. You've you've also turned a question about you. Know how many different species of quarks are there. And how many different species of electrons neutrinos and how many gauge particles are there in the standard convert. Questions like that into questions about what is the geometry of the extra dimensions. So one of the tractions of string theory is this sort of deep interplay between particle physics and mathematics. And you you can say okay. If if if i'm ajami ter- talking about the geometry of six dimensional compact spaces and i wanted to engineer the standard model. You know you say okay. What are the geometrical ingredients. That i need to piece together in this complex face that make precisely the things that we see in in in particle physics to turn the question on its head from one of how do we verify string theory is like how do we use the ingredients of string theory too. We know the problem is the is one hundred thousand years so home save you. Never lucien day was set of intuitions that destroyed to be big company. Contract your enemies sink and so you know in some sense like you say you start. Mathematics aggie plagued explaining expediency in some some way. You have to almost assume. The mathematics is true because proving mathematics from what we conventionally hold us in division. Be probably gonna get anywhere within your well. I think humans are good at developing new intuitions. So you know one of the great revolutions. Physics was the quantum revolution of the nineteen.

"Kind of keeps people up to date on whether we're doing letter writing campaigns her petitions or or whatever in just becoming aware of the issues more and more to raise that awareness. Yeah no in this in this case that that is really a thing because everybody knows the narrative of repressed memories right. And that's also what makes it. So ludicrous this idea that you know. There's no leading in these sessions when people ask hours. Do you think there's anything in your past that may have contributed to this. And it's like we know where that's going right so you can't say that any of this isn't leading to begin with but Previously when the false memory syndrome foundation still existed in before the satanic temple existed There was a real reticence to confront you know the bizarre narratives of satanic ritual abuse alien abduction even on our side of the argument the skeptical side because they like to confront the scientific claims in. Leave the crazy shit out of it. You know in you know. I never went for that because i feel like lay. People can better understand that. These claims of satanic ritual abuse alien abduction. They're insane in there they can. They know without being you know. Phd's that if some fundamental theory of your therapy is leading you to these beliefs. There's something wrong with your theory right. So we do everything to kind of exploit that and show people like okay. If you're getting from eight to be To to say that there's a satanic conspiracy in the same way. You're getting from eight to be to say that that this person has d. Id there's something wrong there you know in you need to look at what's going on you know in the false absurdity. Yeah yeah the false memory syndrome. Foundation tactic was always. Like i said to do the journal articles and everything but at this point that scientists settled like. I said it's a cultural battle. Now it's just a battle of getting people to realize what organizations like the iss td are about to get people upset about that into demand that these licensing boards and other oversight agencies recognizes in. Stop it from happening okay. I have a few questions for you. Lucien that. I've never gotten to ask you but ross did you have anything else about great faction you wanna task. No no okay. Cool solar okay. Real quick things. I've never gotten to ask you. What safeguards have you put into t to make sure you don't go off the rails and become a cult leader big. Swear he's drinking coffee he's taking down. He's coffee he saw idea. That would be the thing in this conversation. That would get such a rise. Out of okay. So safeguards against being a colt. Well i mean. One of those safeguards is like i was saying about grief action like we don't allow we don't ask anybody to take anything upon authority exclusive to having evidence for. We don't ask people to sign on to you. Know the positions at gray faction takes or any others for that matter and we also you know never ask people to not affiliate with any other people right. We don't have kind of structure in place where it's like. You know you're not with us anymore and therefore nobody can talk to you. We've had people leave the satanic temple. Outrage still continue on with friendships with other people in the satanic temple in acrimonious is the relationships with other people might be or anything like that and just you know i think every bit of our philosophy runs against that kind of insular cult-like thanking you know we're very much about free inquiry and exploration and you know it's kind of written into your seven exactly. It's it's it's in the code right areas did you. i assume you at least co wrote those tenants. Are those your creation yet. Malcolm ni- co-authors those tenants correct account which can be found at the satanic temple dot com. Right and there's kind of there's been criticisms about their tenants about how they're kind of like to humanistic into two unobjectionable and it not obscure in in unique enough to be considered in satanic. But if we're to follow a philosophy. I think of free inquiry and using sciences and arbiter of truth claims to find the best way to order our ethics and and conceive of the common good. It is gonna come to be a convergence point right where there's going to be hopefully some kind of general consensus about what those ethics are. We shouldn't shy away from that. And that's another way. I think in which you know. The satanic temple can't become a call is that we do demand evidence for any of the things we put forward in in put forward as our ethics in written into our tenants is attendant that pretty much state set. The tenants are opened revision based upon based upon evidence. and someone. will you in in what way like. I'm like just knowing that. The human brain is so fallible. And i don't expect this to happen. But what if you wake up one morning and you're like no actually i take it back. I am god. Is there anybody who can say oop pseudo aleutians out to lunch. He's he's sidelined now. Well i think ultimately we would like to have some kind of board structure. That would do that in right now. We have a similar kind of bored structure but more. But if you look at the legal construct of the satanic temple. It's kind of an honor system because at the end of it you know malcolm and i own it. So we have ultimate veto power over anything but we also don't claim voting rights when we have a council that votes upon things that chapters. Cana can't do and things like that. Now's your choice to declare yourself. God right. So on our podcast. No so so. I guess that's the answer you know like ostensibly on paper where owners but we run it on the on this board structure but we have to account for the fact that we're going to pass on right in we don't.

"Satan is everywhere and he was fighting communists everywhere during his time in the fbi and was part of investigating martin. Luther king and stuff like that. So i feel like there's a real a real story that kind of cuts to the heart of conspiracy just american culture veto. It's amazing how the 'cause celeb- of one person can become a national obsession. Yeah but but before this digression gets to the point where people are like. What the hell does that have to do with anything he said it was before ted gunderson died i. I had felt he was a real cod man like that all he that his whole thing was just going around doing. Lectures talk about sickness. Getting paid for he would always have these ladies around him. Who were supposed to be mind control than there is kinda tales that he was trying to get sex from them or whatever and i it seemed like he was running his own. We're kind of like colty environments type thing. And and i called him. I spoke to him a couple of times before he died in twenty twelve or something like that so i had some discussions with him in the course of actually talking with him. You know he'd say these ludicrous things and looking into his pass. At the time. I got his f. b. i. File and he had also done some things. That were very counterproductive. I think to his ends if he didn't actually believe in them. But at the same time he was saying and doing things that he knew weren't true also and it was like kind of through ted gunderson that i kinda gave up in some cases on trying to parse out whether they're a con man or whether they're absolutely delusional. Because i think it's not always clear. I think there's an interplay between Just deception in self-deception you know and that people can really invest themselves in a deceptive narrative to the point where they engaged enough thought avoidance in cognitive dissonance justification. That they become a believer. You know in. They're willing to lie a lot of times. I think to support a greater truth. And i see that also with people who claim to have been abducted by aliens. I went to support groups for people who claim to have been abducted by aliens just to talk to them and understand where they're coming from and it was interesting to me to talk to some people and they would start describing standard sleep paralysis in it and i wouldn't push back too hard but i would tell them you know i'd say well you know if you talk to a skeptic they would tell you and then i start telling right now right right not necessarily right but i would start. I would start telling them these things and it was interesting to me to feel like they were giving me a true account of their experience at first but when there was pushback they were clearly willing to lie to to to avoid having to confront that cognitive dissonance and then i would start hearing stories about the better evidence you know like this one guy started telling after he described sleep paralysis and i started explaining this to him he then said well you know they left behind this kind of glowing slime on the surfaces in like. I can't speak about it because some secret group of scientists or whatever are still investigating this in like you know spoke about it. Yeah yeah that kind of thing. It's you know. And then i was thinking like okay. Well that's kind of full of shit. Isn't it in. Why wouldn't you lead with that one rather than drop some huge thing at the end there. Yeah so okay. So you've talked to a bunch of people who have gone through recovered memory therapy or went to a therapist to diagnose them with the id and now believes that they don't have it. Is it your impression that most of those people did come to believe. They had some other diagnosis. That better explain their experience or did they come into these therapeutic settings with sort of banal complaints and came out with much more severe complaints. Well distressingly enough to me. The re tractors who are willing to talk to me in that. I've talked to most of them. Went in with benign problems. To begin with. You know. I spoke to one who went to collin ross. Who's a real over the top quack and be in prison. I think he's got a body count behind him but he's also a past president of the iss td. They still take him seriously. He's always there annually. And i was speaking to round tractors. Yeah yeah yeah. She had originally gone to him because she was trying to extend her medical leave from work because she was working at a child and was going to school at the same time and she was under a lot of stress in she had something completely unrelated to some kind of psychiatric issue but she unfortunately got caught up with ross who diagnosed her with multiple personalities ended up grossly overmedicating. Hirsch became an impatient really damaged your family relationships in her overall life in. That's kind of common. I think for the retract stories. I hear the reason that's really disturbing to me. Is i think that people with more serious issues like say rapid cycling bipolar disorder and being taught that this is a byproduct of having been abused sexually as children in ways they never knew about but only know about now is horrific to me because it indicates me that you know i. I assume assume that's happening quite a bit but these people just might be less likely to ever be detractors to ever see the air in the therapy that they had suffered and i think that's just goes back to. I can't express it enough. How outrageous it is. This still goes on in that. It's still sanctioned by and then you're also notion yeah and then you're also never getting to the root of whatever the real complaint was. Because i have talked to people who were diagnosed with later came to a fines. A hope and therapeutic kelp in borderline diagnosis. Which is at least. You know a a more scientific diagnosis. And and so when they were presenting as alters. They were flooding. They were they were having these enormous emotional reactions. That were completely intolerable. And when handed this narrative will. You're becoming this other person that was in the moments a helpful way to avoid that pain and becomes one else but it still in their minds was still an avoidance technique and as we know from all of behavioral science avoidance deepens your problems and adds new problems to deal with instead of ever getting to the root and. Yeah so so do you think. Have you talked to anyone. Like i've talked to anyone who had borderline or bipolar. And now they're like on now. I understand where this was really coming from. I don't think so and that's okay. That's why i say it's really distressing. Because i feel like the who are more likely to realize that this was bullshit or people who went in for these benign problems and are probably more likely to recall that their problems were benign when they went in. You know once they get off the medication that whatever think of how convincing it can be if you have. Extreme fluctuating emotional states. When you have a therapist asking you to name those specific states and then you know every time you you revisit that. It's going to reaffirm for you right. But think of the notion for a moment that you have repressed memories of abuse that are sequestered to a certain part of your mind. That fracture often two different personalities. That's one thing but why would those different states. Even if they met just manifest themselves intermittently in have different kind of emotional characteristics. Why would they name themselves. Something different. From what the outside environment is referring to them. It's as though this these names are supposed to have some intrinsic meaning right like if i'm to pop into consciousness all of the sudden in everybody's calling me lucien. Why would i say no. I'm bill you know. Clearly this is being made up in the therapeutic environment in the therapeutic setting and this yet just another one of those basic things that you don't see covered in the literature from the perspective of those who advocate for the trauma model of dissociate of identity disorder along with like i said no real follow-up on these personalities especially you know somebody has hundreds of them whether they whether they're maintained or whatever else. You're just such a lack of any real thoughtful research. That would validate any of this. And now like i've said of course have just they feel that if they just assault the idea false memories enough in claim that it's part of an agenda to deny that abuse happens that they're in the clear so what can people do to change. All this people are listening in our like. Oh my god. This is a huge problem. I had no idea about. Is there anything they can do to support. Gray factions work. Just check out.

"To say because openly said it's because of you by name. Yeah yeah yeah no. I'm proud of that but it was because we've been reaching out to the boards at approve continuing education units and the one that had approved for continuing education units. Ask them to stop doing mind. Control lectures but Outrageously enough they just told their membership in their speakers that they needed to keep mind control out of the titles of the lectures but they could still talk about whatever they want. And when i see that kind of dishonesty i get really angry. But then you have guys like neo brick in the i s td. Who is a therapist in massachusetts. And he seems like he's legitimately deranged. This guy talks about how he recovered. Memories of being this illuminate super soldier and he and ellen lacter are really upset by the notion that the iss td would change the name of the ritual abuse mind-control special interest group. Because they feel like this is a real issue in that people need to be made aware of this conspiracy. And i feel like i disagree with everything they're saying but at least they seem to believe in it right at least they seem to think it's defensible. At least they seem to think that they have the evidence for this and that should be put out there. I really hate the guys who are like all right. Let's let's keep quiet about this but still do what we're doing because that feels a lot more to me like it's just a a failure to admit they're wrong when they know they are and keep their career kind of going forward regardless of who it hurts so Two of the people we've recently reported on our people. I think you're pretty familiar with bob. Larsen and jerry moon godsey. Have you run into them. I know you run into them with grave. Actions work what. What comes to your mind when you hear those two names. Well possession and possession. I think is not far off from the question of associated identity disorder and you will see people you know in the isis. Td camp there is a guy randy little knob noblet out of texas who was directly quoted saying that dissociate identity disorders. Just kind of the western culture name for possession states. And i think that's more accurate than they would care to admit and in fact the rise in popularity of the idea of multiple personality disorder is just what you know dissociate identity disorder used to be called in the courses satanic panic. They renamed it to kind of try to remove it from that that moral panic that kind of served a discredited for some time. It's kind of dangerous for them. I think to draw that association because you know people who claim to be possessed feel that they're possessed aren't aren't willing necessarily to say that they suffered a a series of abuses in their childhood that they had forgotten right and possession is one of those things also where. I don't think people who feel that they are possessed are lying about it either. you know. it's also something in the socio cognitive bottle where they have a framework a pre existing one. It's there is a good deal of role enactment On the unconscious level not to say acting not to say pretending but it's certainly a way in which people can express their malays based upon a certain map set forward for them by the culture that they're in right and i think understanding possession can help you understand better the notion of associated identity disorder. And i think there's more similarities between guys like bob larsen people in the isis t- than they realize i think that kind of grey area overlap would be mugabe is that how jerry mckenzie yeah godsey. Yeah because mcguachie. I think was actually part of the isis. Td you know dealing with both d right from them right right but he works But he works on both d. Id an possession in some some of them view these as distinct from one another in others view them as just kind of one in the same in overlapping for any for any of our listeners. Who may not remember the name. Jerry moon godsey. That was the therapist that we talked about. Who had us color in our brains as paper diagrams with crayons and then he diagnosed us based on the colors that we chose to fill in the maps of our brains. Now when he asked you to do this. We're you just in your own environment with your own. Cran's or oh. He brought us boxes of krantz in office. I would have been curious if the krantz were ordered in any color scheme in the button. That would okay. It was a big. Yeah they weren't. There was box. Certainly more colors were available when i would go searching for particular color sometimes i had to sift through a little bit but there were a lot of krantz. Okay i would think that possibly even the color of the room and other factors might have some kind of effect on what color you choose for for coloring the brain and i highly doubt he's explored any of those things. Oh my goodness. It's so uncontrolled solution in every way. He's even said in interviews. He's just admitted that green is the possession color and brown as the lesbian color. It's just like yeah. Anyone could just have listened to one of your interviews and then come into your office and use that color and you'd say clearly says bo or what i had. I had a lot of pink and some rain. Brain that one. He thought that i was gay. Because it's pretty clear. I had put a lot of rainbow like colors and pink in my brain. Oh and i filled out the shape of phallus. That's right that's important nationally. That out have you had any personal interaction with. Bob has has tried to confront you or is he made commentary about you. He has made commentary about us. I don't even quite remember what that commentary was. And i don't know to what degree i acknowledged it because you know in the satanic temple. There's differing feelings about what's funny. And what isn't when it comes to satanic panic material and some people have a lot of our affect fine line. There's a lot of people who have a lot more affection for bob larsen than i ever could. I do not think he was benign. I do not think he's funny. I do not have any sympathy for him idea man. Do you think he's sincere. I think he's i think that's always a difficult question for any of these guys because i referred earlier to the former. Fbi man who dug up the tunnels mcmartin and his name was ted gunderson and i think a some kind of biography of him needs to be done. I talked about writing one with a a friend. Journalist of mine lenny flatly. Maybe we'll get to that some time. Because i requested is f. b. i. File after he died. And there's quite a story there you know cool. Yeah yeah he he actually was was high ranking before he died. I wasn't sure i thought okay. This guy was probably mopping the floors in. You know in dc and it made a big conflicted it into something. It wasn't but no he had direct correspondence from hoover. All the way up to like webster. I think was a special agent charge and it really made. You wonder about the legitimacy of a lot of investigations. You know especially. He had us very much part of the red scare. You know checks interesting to contemplate maybe a continuity between that. Yeah china and it didn't seem like there was a turning point where he went insane like he was insane as soon as he left the fbi and migrated over to private investigation was fighting..

"Affection. It's very difficult because sometimes we don't know what else to do but let people know that this is happening so a lot of what we do is investigate. These things like issue reports about them. Try to make people aware of how insane those particular fringe segment particularly the isis. Td which. I mentioned the international society for the study of trauma and dissociation are. And we've been writing letters to licensing boards and other consumer commissions in different states trying to prevent the i s td from being allowed to give out continuing education units at their conferences. 'cause they They give out continuing education units when they're doing lectures talking about aluminum body mind control satanic ritual abuse. You attend this lecture as a nurse or practitioner therapist and now you've taken care of this important licensing requirement that you continue to educate yourself right and we've also gone to a lot of different licensing boards just reporting some of the insane ideas being propagated by some of the people there licensing because if you take a reading of some of the standards at The professionals have that we take they really. Don't have any rights to propagate conspiracy theories under the authority of their licensing So far we haven't had much luck in getting licensing boards to agree. And i think that's simply out of laziness They don't typically deal with this. They typically don't respond to complaints about therapists or clinical psychologists. Unless unless they're fucking client that seems to be the only thing they're interested in right now and i think what it will take is just getting enough outrage honestly getting more and more people recognize what's wrong with what's going on here in it becoming more and more clear that they can't simply ignore these complaints because people are paying attention and that's what we're working on so you haven't seen anybody actually lose their licence because of this malpractice or even because of this head. We had some bit of luck in canada. The united states has been terrible. I sent carry a whole report written up some years ago. About a woman named ellen lacked or who is a chair of the iss. Td's own ritual abuse. Mike control special interest group who had consulted with a woman who ultimately murdered her own eight year old autistic child because she felt that he wasn't autistic. That actually what appeared to be autism was a manifestation of the trauma. He had suffered at the hands of unseen satanists and she was very very delusional. Very deranged by her own admission. She had observed the satanists abusing this child and she had been with the child essentially his entire life but still. She claimed that at the time she was killing him that she was preserving him. From further abuse the hands of satanic cult and to us the outrage was is as she had sought the help of professionals and that one of those professionals was ellen. Lacter who openly propagates these notions of satanic ritual abuse and other really delusional on hinged ideas in our thinking was that perhaps if she had found competent professional help. Somebody might have tried to disabuse her illusions before she murdered her kid in that l. Actress should be called to account for that. Anyways we set. Seth is very well documented in detailed report it to california the california board of consumer affairs or whatever it is at that deals with these types of things outlining all the deranged ideas that ellen lack d'oeuvres advocates for that. She gives lectures about everything about nine months later they sent us an unsigned letter. That said They no rules were violated and we can essentially fuck off and that was about it but in canada. There's a woman named allison miller who was also these very bizarre ideas of satanic ritual abuse. I think also luminosity witchcraft in this. Various conspiracies mythologies really unhinged over the top and to their credit in canada. They said they're gonna open up an investigation. They're going to have some kind of hearing or whatever but instead of going through. That allison miller just abdicated her license and said yeah she was going to step down and step away all the while getting very angry and saying it had nothing to do with what we had done but that that pressure was integral to that outcome. So that's it seems. I looked as though that was all it was what caused her to give her license. I'm curious where do you go for scientific information to kind of feel the gray factions efforts. Do you work with any particular researchers or specialists there. There have been a lot of journal articles. There's a lot of discussion. The memory issue has been scientifically established for a long time. Now there's a false controversy surrounding it. This idea that the notion of false memories is very tenuous idea or that. It's impossible to create false memories of trauma which is shown to be absolutely false. You you can have those memories of trauma and like i've talked to people personally. I've done a lot of interviews with people who've been subject to this kind of therapy. Allowed them re tractors who came to realize. They held false memories of satanic abuse. It never happened. You know some people who still believe that. These things are taking place. When i when i was unknown in still able to go conferences for these people in talked about these things was very clear. You know that people who had false memories of being abducted by aliens you know they they they they could help with very traumatic memories of this and in fact. They did a study at harvard Richard mcnally in his his group. They they were testing. The psycho physiological responding in script driven imagery For people who had undergone real verifiable traumas like saying wartime trauma and people who had false memory traumas in these particularly were traumatic memories of alien abduction Now i mean the first thing we have to accept here. Is that the alien abduction. Trials are fake memories right. Yeah there wasn't like real investigation as to whether there was evidence that these people were kidnapped by aliens. But at least you have to pick your narrative you know either. Believe in aliens or they believe in this but you just starting out admitting that. I just believe that people weren't abducted by and right false memories for this conversation right. Yeah that's the given there. They were measuring electrical resistance and other physiological markers of trauma and finding that people who were reading these kinds of scripts that would talk about their wartime trauma. Whatever had identical psycho physiological responses to recalling that kind of trauma is people recalling these narratives veiling abduction. So if you have traumatic false memories it will act like a real trauma..

"Model that those who advocate for it put forward and we don't ask that people go through that level of research to become a satanist right so that's why gray faction is separate from the rest of the satanic temple. Because you know we so that there's mesa dwell where you don't necessarily sign onto. That is a great because it's a gray area or their other factions of other colors. No i saw some weird conspiracy theory at one point online where somebody was saying clearly called grey faction based on some some scientology thing and people have tried to make the argument. That great faction is is scientologist in the in the way that it's like anti psychiatry or whatever which is just clearly wrong yeah yeah but also the just started being called grey faction because earlier on there. Was this idea that we were just gonna make these different colored patches with our logo that would indicate different campaigns. You know so if you were working with the reproductive rights campaign or whatever there's like a purple patch or whatever in. We didn't have a name for what we were doing with the gray faction stuff but there was the question of what color should the patches be and i was just kinda like well. I guess these are brain issues. So why not. Why not great okay. Yeah so for lack of any other word we just naturally started calling it the gray faction and it just it stock probably a real letdown as far as the story to be called associated with maybe the gray matter of the brain.

"Whatsoever so. I knew that there was a lot of a lot of rough terrain to be to be traveled there. But i have to say after like eight years. This is played out. I think in a best case scenario fashion is to kind of in our as opposed to the pessimistic fatalistic view. I had going into it yet. It's not too often that we get to talk to a founder and discoverer of a religion and so it was a lot of startups. But they don't last very long exactly and it sounds like you know you did this. Conscientiously knowing satanism carries a lot of baggage especially with the religious said that even in conversations with people like us you'd have to do a lot of sort of explaining in defining of terms a you also mentioned another aspect which is safety. Is there anything that you have to do to protect yourself for your identity from a lot of people who probably hate you. Yeah from the very beginning. There were always people host and bizarre things online making really outrageous claims and claims of the type that if one were to take them seriously. I would fully be deserving getting shot or otherwise making out eating babies right. Yeah yeah right. Human sacrifice all that kind of thing and and really trying to undermine the entire fabric of civilization and having power to do so in some people's minds but the kind of outrage we get waxes and wanes depending on how much we're in the news in also depending on election cycles just before the presidential election or months before the presidential election. Actually there was one week. I'd have to look back and see which week it was but it was the week. I think where the pay trolls and everything else started. Really appearing online trying to put out formative false information about That would persuade the election. One way or the other in two thousand sixteen or twenty twenty twenty twenty twenty sixteen. I wasn't is aware of these things. I don't think anybody was aware of like the troll farms and things like that. And i even then didn't have as much of a feel for the kind of environment of my twitter feed. I think in twenty sixteen. You know random would pop on their whatever but at the gotten to the point by twenty twenty. Where you know. I have a consistent base of people comment on my things and everything. It's usually pretty peaceful you know every so often there's some asshole pop saad in size patrol or whatever but one week all of a sudden in my feeds. Were you know all these bizarre. Cue in on things popping up all these allegations after things i would say and talking heads of the conservative camp even some high profile ones. Who you know aren't just a just anonymous trolls or whatever started talking about our bathroom at monument which we had had offered to put alongside a ten commandments monument. I in oklahoma and then arkansas you see everything story. Nail satan documentary but to put it when the protests were were breaking out after the george floyd murder and this was part of the run up to the twenty twenty election it became real popular for conservative talking heads to say well if these icons to our american heritage in history meaning confederate memorials. Were to be torn down than you know. This bath monument should be torn down as well. They're usually pictures accompanying this you know. It'd be like to picture is a picture of the protesters tearing down confederate memorial than below at the. Show picture the bathroom at monument saying this should be torn down to it. That was kind of harrowing. Because our beth monument is not on public property right. Now it's private property it's in our headquarters in somebody savvy enough to look it up. Could figure out where it is but somebody stupid enough might not realize the the real difference there you know in. There's a real fear that somebody at least in that timeframe i mean anytime they could come but specially then. We really felt on high alert that somebody was bound to feel. They had the justification of some patriotic majority to come in. Burn our place down. And i was staying at the headquarters at the time locked down for the for the pandemic so many a night just watching the cameras so with the bathroom at statue that reminds me of something you said earlier in this conversation. You're you're saying that early in the development of the satanic temple. You i think you used the word pranks what were some of the things that felt more like pranks. Yeah at the beginning. Like i said. It was really harrowing to the very idea of being recognized publicly as a satanist. And i felt like in some ways as really throwing my life away like in the google universe. You know i'll never live without you. Know what else am i going to do for job. Or whatever i couldn't publicly out myself as satan is for like six months and move into normalcy there after you know is something that was going to follow me forever and we knew we had no idea how this would work out so in a way allowing some of our presentation to be prankster. Ish helped the kyw. In in a little way mitigate that you know like people wanted to look at it as a prank. It seemed a little less dangerous to so even though it's important that people know that we're not in that we have our own affirmative values and everything else in that harrowing time. It was easier to do things like advocate for governor rick in florida where you see the beginning of the hail satan documentary. We pulled this prankster ish type activism where we went to the capital of florida to honor. Rick scott who is an asshole these. He's a. he was a conservative asshole governor and he was pushing for this religious liberty bill to put prayer in schools. And we thought well you know satan can give invocations or do whatever satanic practice in school too. So you know in that was shirley unintended consequence of what rick scott was doing but we wanted to get everybody to realize that and we did that by claiming that we were honoring rick scott. We wouldn't do that anymore..

"I feel like this has been a longtime coming. Yeah you don't have to be over zoom. you're on the east coast but really great to meet you. Lucien nice to meet you. It has been a long time in coming. What is the history. How how do you know. Each other there were go. That's my first question accidents. We've known each other for over a week now. So i don't remember at all that's how far back your memory goes pretty much. Well all recover the memory of how we met all admit. I was one of those people who thought that the satanic temple was a group of sort of cheeky activists who used the cloak of religion in order to poke fun at religious exemption in the us. And while i think there's an element of that. I thought that was sort of the whole bag. Sort of a flying spaghetti monster group exactly so i went and saw the movie. Hail satan with my friend jude. Who very much grew up during the satanic panic and afterward she turned me and she said i can't believe it this whole time. I thought that satanists were evil. Like inter fifties and very very sweet and that really struck me. I was like oh. Wow i this. This is actually like a very effective technique that they've that they've used here and i had already sort of grown in my admiration for lucien through that movie so afterward i wrote to lucien i think on twitter and we just started talking mostly about repressed memory which we both had this this deep fascination with And so then. We ended up Texting and just you know becoming friends. And then he came to san diego which is not too far from us to record an album salsa musician and down there and hung out okay. Proper friends will. This is cool and we've already touched on some of these issues that i know we're going to have to descend big you it. I'm sure lucien you start every conversation this way but maybe you can sort of explain for our listeners who maybe think satanism is evil. What the differences between the satanic temple that you co-founded versus the church of satan and sort of win you got founded and what your may names are right. Well i think first and foremost people need to realize not the aesthetic religion. We don't espouse super naturalism. We don't venerate satan as a actual literal deity but as literary construct and icon of the ultimate rebel against tyranny. The differences between us and the church of satan are pretty extreme. Some people see us as being very similar core values in that. That could really be true. You know satanism. Both in the context of the church's satan. Amnesty tannock temple are considered left hand path religions where it's not about subjugating yourself to a higher power but improving yourself as an individual beyond that the differences are pretty severe in that The church of satan takes a very authoritarian autocratic perspective of that that's the dominant individual should lord over the unwashed uneducated masses. And do they aspire to to build a kind of police state. even though they say they're a political they have they're very political agendas very very explicitly laid out and they also still talked quite a bit about practicing magic in even though it's gone quite out of fashion at least in satan circles to speak about super naturalism. They will say that they do not believe in magic in a supernatural sense however magic can work some kind of super normal powers that are on yet explained by science. Intrusive just super naturalism by a different kind of cement work. Yes yeah so you say still so. The church of satan was founded in the sixties by anton. Levay they're still active. Do you ever interact with them. Skirmish with them. Oh yeah i mean. They're not active except for as a twitter account. Essentially you know. They still have a website where they'll charge people over two hundred dollars for a membership card. But they don't have a physical property dedicated to what they do they don't congregate. They don't involve themselves in anything and they also hold up their lack of activity as some kind of noble virtue because they don't get involved in politics because religion has no place in politics. You know they talk all about all the things they don't do in they get very upset when the satanic temple does do anything because it's not the proper place of sweetness to do anything at all. According to that that's i think is just more justification for why they aren't actually active than anything else so i think what what you're getting from me. A sense of them okay. I'm glad we could boil it down. So why starter. Religion why religion and not a philosophy or a club or political group or anything else. I had an affinity satanism of course well before the satanic temple. It wasn't one of those things where i was sitting around and thought well how how do we. How do we go about these church state issues in. Just come up with the idea of starting a religion then arbitrarily choosing which one the whole kind of non-theistic satanic thing was very much my thing for many years before founding the satanic temple but it was also not something. I was willing to put out publicly to kind of possibly destroy my public reputation and bring harmed myself on lesser some kind of greater purpose for that and at the point where we were starting the satanic temple that greater purpose was there you know. We were starting an organization for an organizational purpose for specific goals. So if it worked for that kind of political activism we felt was really necessary for an alternative religion to claim equal access in areas where christian nationalists were trying to beat down the doors to put up their monuments or their prescriptions. Or whatever else you know at that point then coming out publicly is sadness you know made sense. It was serving a greater purpose but it was also something that you know. I knew i had to be in for the long haul because i was aware of all the things that have happened during the satanic panic people look back at the prankster. Like things we did at the inception of the satanic temple and they were funny but they were also horrific to me. Because i didn't take any of it lightly you know. I didn't take it lightly at all that my image was on the news being associated with this inches knowing that whole history of people's lives being absolutely destroyed on mir allegations of satanism people who had no attachment to anything.

Yeah we've been wanting to talk to him for a long time and we're really excited to share this interview with you. We talk about a lot of things. Church-state seven relation issues that lucian is always intimately involved with but we also talk to him. Kind of following up with our bob larsen series and looking at issues of possession and also the science around recovered memory dissociate identity disorder yet so. Let this be a notification that these topics will come up during this interview. Yeah so he he gets into a whole bunch of stuff here and we couldn't fact check every possible thing though he's a he's a very reputable source but there are a few things that i just want to say. I don't know about at all those include like the church of satan. He mentions them as distinct from the satanic temple. I know nothing about the church of satan. Lucien is a super smart guy. He's got a fun attitude. Just know that maybe his way of expressing things wouldn't always be necessarily the way we do on onerous and kerry but that's his approach. He's got a good approach. Yeah one of the things i love about. Wishing he's obsessed with a lot of the same subjects. I'm obsessed with and is able to catalogue sources in his head in a way that blows me away like he can just name for you. The most recent study that's been pure reviewed on repressed memory. Just ask him he'll just no. It's pretty wild. So though those parts of the conversation we both know a little more about yeah so recovered memories than me. Because i really don't. I met you and i know more about that than about. Say the church of saint. Gotcha so those parts of the conversation were a little more informed on but yeah at lucien does take a different tone than we do one of the things i wrote down as i was listening to this again because we recorded this a couple of months ago a while ago and i was listening to the audio just like what did we talk about and when i did i wrote down that he said intellectually insulting supernatural beliefs a phrase when he was just talking about religion at large. So you know. That's a different tone than we would take but the point is if that's the kind of thing that you don't feel like doing today don't feel like listening to this. Saint your episode and again we talk about issues that we've gotten a lot of feedback from listeners about when it comes to repressed memory We understand these are tricky topics and we don't report to be speaking to any specific cases except when we do them right so at least let us acknowledge here that these are complicated topics best done with a qualified therapist and even within that world. There are some problems with licensor lucien. We'll get into that. Situation is really complex. And i'm not sure what. The solution is right now but the first step is obviously going to be to understand the problem. What the lucien the. Oh shit yeah yeah yeah like it so that's a difficult topic to traipse into. We totally understand if you wanna skip that. But we were very interested in hearing lucians a reaction to some of these issues because he has dealt with bob larsen and the satanic panic. You'll notice that we mentioned a lot. The mcmartin case. Yeah and we jump into that with quite a bit of familiarity. If you're not too familiar with it. There was a preschool. That was accused of just horrendous acts in the early one thousand nine hundred eighty s. They have been abusing children and the claims. Got carried away yeah. It was very far fetched claim so it was that they were abusing children sexually and otherwise in underground tunnels traveling them to other churches. Far away to participate in satanic rituals sacrificing animals yet taking kids up in airplanes with clown's. Yeah so all of this came down to see questioning. Can you just believe everything children are saying. Are they being coerced into saying things. Are they leading the witness in how they're prepping children for these testimonies so all of this is really tricky. Squishy stuff yet. As just know that we'll be referring to that case if you're looking for a dramatized version of the story just as a kind of a quick overview of the rough timeline in events. There's a movie called. Indictment the mcmartin trial with none other than james woods playing the the main lawyer in the case. Yeah i think that if there's one takeaway from these sorts of stories it's that you can't just ask yourself whether someone is lying. That's not the only question someone can remember can be completely sincere. Be feeling very strong. Emotional feelings about what they remember and still be wrong about what happens right and the child or adult in this comes up in the interview but we talk about how how difficult it can be to ascribe blame in such situations because oftentimes even the therapists may be is doing the wrong thing but not realizing is doing out of good motives So keep an open mind on that conversation and hopefully this gives you some good food for thought. We also mentioned new york magazine. Yes so i think this comes up a little void of context just to give folks the context. There was an article that came out of new york magazine and the cut. Which is its website. That was about the false memory syndrome foundation. Which is was an organization founded by parents who had been accused of abusing their children. Those parents claims that they hadn't and that their kids some of them adults. Some young had been manipulated consciously or unconsciously by therapists or other parents et cetera to have these memories slogan genuine memories of things. That didn't happen. That was the claim of the parents. Obviously you get into a sticky situation there right when you form an organization like that very likely. You're going to have things out for motivated reasoning. Sure but you're also probably going to get people who are innocent and people. Who aren't that's probably going to happen. That's also going to happen with nearly anything you could set up right like you're going to get people who are there for the for the wrong reasons to use a phrase when the bachelor and people who are guilty of abuse and other criminality they will try to use this as a tool to cast out on people who are trying to see them brought to justice. Yes that's a problem. Yeah that's a real fallout of a real problem because false memories also a reality so anyway that will come up here and the article in question. The new york magazine article was written by journalists named katie. Heaney and she really tore apart the false memory syndrome foundation really. I think tried to paint them. As a group of abusers who all had bad motives and also painted the people who founded it as abusers. It's such a more complex story than that. And so i wrote a letter to new york magazine saying like. Hey i don't think this was great journalistic work because at least let's hear you know more of the details of the story. It's at the very least complex. And they didn't print that story and then in the wake of that. I found out that there were a bunch of very well written well. Reasons letters many from experts or people who had been mentioned in the piece who wrote in and said what the heck happened here and then print those either so i ended up printing all of them in a medium piece so if anyone wants to do the deep dive that's out there as well which includes a piece by lucien greaves. Yeah he wrote a great letter. Okay well hopefully that set some context or this wide ranging discussion to come on. We're very happy to introduce you to lucien greaves ross. I'm so excited to introduce you finally to my friend lucian..

"lucien" Discussed on News Talk KOKC 1520

"To be work. And I really you know, my mentor guy named Lucien camps. Pollution has been passed away a long time now. Solution was full stories. He's one of these guys. When you say with him, he always had a story and his folks immigrated over from Ireland. Uh, Coney Island is where he lived and he would pass on. When my dad died 1975 my grandfather's same year. My I was eight years old. And, uh, my mother, too. I went with her to see illusion. Cause solution was the guy that everybody respected in town. For his knowledge on all filled mineral rights royalties. And Lucien was. This is a dead industry now, but he was a broom, Corn buyer and so Lindsay America Lindsay, Oklahoma. Was known in the forties fifties sixties that Lindsay swept the world. It was the broom corn capital of the world. And and that was Utah Valley. Very fertile ground for growing bream, corn and grain. Corn is literally what brooms were made out of. And the synthetic broom industry destroyed Lindsay as the broom corn capital world because brooms were now synthetic and not made from room corn. But Lucien was a broom corn buyer. And so guess what? He got to know which is the farmers and in the early days The farmers own land, and that was the only thing that was important to them. What was underneath that ground was not that important to them, because all and gas was not a thing. Demolition started his career He came over from from New York City to Lindsay America, Little bitty town and and went to work for a man that that had three brothers Scott Morris, who went to work for he. He brought broom corn to Lindsay. That man Andalucian work for him. And, uh, Lucien would give me stories that I use in my business every day in and a lot of those stories you know, are important for retirees. No, And that is The main thing about retirement that he told me he worked till the day he died and worked in a little bitty office and I said Lucian What's the secret? Being happy in retirement. He goes Mike, You have to have a reason to get up in the morning. You have to have something that and he's telling me this when he is, uh, late late eighties, maybe early nineties, and you have to have a reason to get up. And I thought about that often. That's great. Now. His reason Get up is he went in and sat in his office. It'd paperwork he didn't work for somebody. At that point, he looked at his investments in the oil and gas industry, mineral rights that he had bought and people come visit him and he had a purpose and a reason. And he treated it like a job and in people like my mom who brought me and introduced me to him because she had a question of mineral rights, and he became a lifelong mentor to me. He loved that. So I think about that I want I want my clients. And myself to have a reason to get up in retirement every morning, and so, uh, Just part of the you know, not everything is about dollars and cents with a with an investment advisor. If you if you're with one that really has your best interests at heart in your family. They're going to get to know you and I'm going to learn from you and you're gonna learn from me, Tony. That's that's part of Given intake, I think is very important because it allows you and I to bond and therefore you mean something to me. I want to see you succeed and in your retirement Yeah. Yeah, And I think that's really important because You have a report you can run. There's so many different filing strategies and you can leave so much money on the table. You've said you've seen situations where people it made a difference over their lifetime of over $100,000 absolutely and benefits because so many people think. Oh, I'm 62. I can think. Benefits, but that's might get social Security. But if you file then you get a greatly reduced amount. And you know if you're going to have a shorter lifespan, and you know it may be that makes sense. Or if you absolutely can't live without the money and you don't have an income or you're going to retire at 62. Otherwise, you're probably going to want to wait and I know you've talked about that in the past, but you ever report That will tell people based on their situation when the sweet spot for them would be to file right. Absolutely that you don't just give me a call at 40576. Oh, 5863 we can do Social Security maximization report for you and give you something in black and white that you can read and have and help you make that decision on wind to take the money and Tony know a lot of this. The other aspect of this is you kinda hinted on it is, uh, How long do you think you're gonna live? Well, you know, we're going to ask those tough, tough questions. How How are you? Do you have something that has The potential of short in your life. Did your folks die early? All that matters and wind to start taking your check. So we're going to help you do that? Yeah. And I want to jump ahead here a bit. I mean, obviously, there's a lot to cover, but based on time, I know another thing. If people are thinking about retirement, they also, you know, need to make sure That they have a a legacy plan or a state plan in place. They need a will, right. Do you know? Wills and trusts are very important. For that legacy, planning that that that is planning beyond the grave, and, um, we're going to help you with that. We're gonna recommend, uh Just give you some names of some attorneys maybe to talk to, um, we're going to. It's surprising to me when I first started my career, I thought that trust were only for the super rich..

Biden and Putin Agree to Extend Nuclear Treaty

Biden and Putin Agree to Extend Nuclear Treaty

"Biden had his first call with his Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin. Biden did not shy away from raising concerns over the poisoning of Russian opposition leader Alexei Navalny, cyber espionage and the bounties on American troops. That is a big contrast with the open admiration former president Trump expressed for Putin or joined now to talk about it by NPR's Lucy in Kim in Moscow. Hi there. Listen. Morning. So what exactly did Biden and Putin talk about in their first phone call? Well, The main thing they talked about was the new start treaty. This is the last nuclear arms control treaty between the United States and Russia, and it literally expires at the end of next week. The Trump Administration tried to add new conditions to the treaty in its negotiations with Russia that failed, and now there's not any time left and it looks like both sides are going for a straight five year extension as provided for in the treaty. As for the other things they talked about. The Kremlin emphasizes in its readout that they talked about cooperation in fighting the corona virus and bilateral trade. But the White House readout Aziz you mentioned brings up some of the more thorny issues like Alexei Navalny of Russian election interference. And the recent cyber attack on the U. S government. So the Kremlin was much more diplomatic and conciliatory and its tone while it seems the White House was much tougher, so some mixed messages, they're probably no surprise under the circumstances, though. And we know Lucien that Biden has met Putin before when Biden was vice president under Obama, But what do we know about the personal relationship between these two men? This is not an easy relationship. I don't think there's any love loss between Biden and Putin. But all the Russian experts I've talked to say Putin is also pragmatic and he's ready to do business. And in some sense, he's really desperate to get the attention of the United States. You know, Despite all of Trump's admiration for Putin, he left relations in a really bad place. The last time we know that there was a phone call between the Russian and American presidents was six months ago last summer. I didn't understand the U. S needs to deal with Russia and he's in a hurry to extend the new start treaty, but I think it's very telling how he made this phone call. He did it after Antony Blinken was confirmed as secretary of state. And as Blinken and the other foreign ministers of the G seven condemned Navalny's imprisonment. Besides that, quite symbolically. Biden also called the secretary general of NATO. Yesterday. This all sends a very clear message to Putin that the US is again working with its allies and will very loudly criticize the Kremlin. So as we've said new administration, very different approach to Russia and many other things. How should we expect US Russia relations to change under Biden? Well. Biden called Russia the biggest threat to U. S National Security and its allies during the election campaign, and the statement was heard in Moscow as well. Nobody I've talked to here expects and relations to get any better. So in the short term, it looks like both sides can agree that renewing new start is a win win situation. But in this phone call with Putin, Biden also alluded to a lot of the huge stumbling blocks that lie ahead. These are issues that won't go away and will dominate the bilateral agenda. NPR's Lucy and Kim, Thanks so much. Thank you.

How to Stand Out in a Fitness Revolution with Khalil Zahar

"Today we'll be talking about how to stand out in a fitness revolution because we are parts of a fitness revolution. I can tell you that right now. I mean i've got peleton in my gym right here on thinking about getting a mirror i mean. There's there's a lot of things that are going on. In this world it is a revolution so khalil. That leads me to my first question of why boxing like did you see a trend in the boxing space or is this more born from a passion for the sport. Yeah it's a great question. You know our story really tells that answer well so a lot of people know us for fight camp today but we actually originally started with a product called hicks so h. y. k. S which was like a terrible name But basically are. I started boxing in my life. Pretty late when it was about Twenty one years old and you know my background is actually more in soccer. But i really wanted yet. I fell in love with the sport. And i wanted to compete in studying competitive sport. The twenty one years old. It's it's you know you're kind of behind so at that point. I really wanted to shortcut my way to the east of lucien possible. That was very really adamant about you. Know having the best training regimen possible really tried to optimize single aspect of it and that led us know me to do you want to measure myself on a regular basis and there was not a lot of measuring out there for boxing specific stuff so we created this first version of the product. That's our punch trackers you with them on your race. The calculate the types of country throw measures the speed of every punch and you could recreate performance profile it and that went on to be a very successful product elite community you know. We had multiple olympic teams using it a lot of pro boxers in pro ufc fighters using it And then because boxing anime kickboxing Is a very special sports. Where ninety five percent of. It's not like ninety nine percent of the people that engage in it actually don't entering the ring and get hit but just do it for the fitness aspect of it so we can you know our initial products stuttered to spill two very different. You know typical customer and that kind of drought. It drew us into the fitness world. Fire nation. i really want you to just think that. Hey there's multiple ways to kind of make your start. make your splash. Is it because of a trend or is it because of a passion can it. Maybe be a combination of both. I mean that can kind of be where a zona fire lies. And they can really be a spark. And then of course lease to we can flag ration- and khalil for you. Since you started fight camp how have you seen the connected. Fitness industry evolve. How would just are connected to other people live or you know whether we've got stuff strapped on this. This is kind of connecting all of our stats. What we're doing here. I mean are people working from home. Instead of gyms is actually become the norm. Absolute thing it. It will be for portion of the majority of the portion of the fitness community. I think we're still you know like obviously with covid things have been accelerated loved. But you know we really believe that in the long run working out in a workout room makes a lot more sense to have in your home the same way. You actually have living room in the same way. You have a home theater in a big screen. Tv and a kitchen. We think it's going to be an extension part of our living spaces just because it's not something you you you're doing only once a month you know like a good fitness routine will engage in it at least at least three times a week so you know having to add friction every time that you have to do this with the commute and having to hit the class right on time where it starts. We just don't think it's aligned with the frequency in which you have to engage with it so that's one aspect. The second aspect is like home fitness. Home fitness is very popular today but it started a long time ago You know. And i'm sure some people remember jazzercise tai-bo that was really like the the beginning of the category but you know it led to a lot of like scan products especially specifically like in the late nineties. A lot of infomercial at the end of the night like black and white. And you don't train trying to target people that really wanted to buy a dream but now this silly inc a fitness and a healthy lifestyle and i can feel that this new generation of companies are lot more thin. -tic they're genuine. They're offering a better way and they're not targeting someone who's you know trying to press on the fact that you know you may not feel good about yourself. Look at all these people in shape. But they're they're targeting a healthy lifestyle. And i think they're building the products accordingly as well. I mean khalil. It's critical these days to stand up above the noise to be unique from your competition. I mean that just every industry a hundred percent across the board and let's be honest. Cop is fierce in the fitness space. So what specifically have you done to make fight camp standout. We're yet to see a serious competitor in boxing and kickboxing right. Like we. You know we. There's some concepts out there but you know when we started it was not about. You know trying to beat the competition. It was more. You know like there's a very unique opportunity here and being the first to bring a connected experience to boxing and kickboxing from home. And you know. We thought the power of teaching people how to do boxing. Well was also like you know a statement for you. Know the growth of boxing with a lot of franchise that were growing as well. You know like pre covid. Boxing gyms and kickboxing gyms. The nation were growing very very fast. It was becoming a very big fast-growing exercise that was gaining in popularity. But you know. Boxing is not easily. You know it's not easily accessible in terms of flake. There's a lot of technique you can just get a bag and hit it but it is not proper boxing. You actually have to develop the foundation you have to. You know work on your reflexes and then you have to know why you through a certain bunch and why you don't throw that certain bunch and how to move so we wanted to provide in the centric experience and at the same time naked interactive and. There was nobody else that was doing that at a time. Fire

Saudi women's rights activist sentenced to prison

"Used a BBC World Service. Let's turn now to reactions to the sentence, handed down to to one one of of Saudi Saudi Arabia Arabia is is best best known known women's women's rights rights activists. activists. She's She's the the Jane. Jane. I'll I'll have have flu. flu. Probably Probably activist activist who who campaign campaign for for women's women's rights rights to to drive drive has has been been sentenced sentenced to more than five years in prison by a special criminal court on that call was actually set up to try terrorism charges. It's an absolute was arrested in May, 2018 just before women were given the right to drive. Saudi authorities deny her arrest had anything to do with that issue. She was convicted of various charges, including trying to harm national security. In advance of foreign agenda all denied by her that speak now to her sister earlier. I'll have the welcome to news day earlier. Thank you so much for joining us. I mean, you had you and your family, of course for continuously Against this sentence against her imprisonment. So five years and eight months. What do you make of that? Hi. So first of all, it's five years and eight months. But if you do all the calculation because she spent already three years almost three years in prison on there for two years and a half she she voted Meteo stay in prison, eh? So it means that she can be freed by next March. 2021, however, Login T really was very, very sad when she heard the news that the sentence because for her, it means that the court consider her as terrorists. And that's why she's going on appeal. She will appeal. Um s O in order to obtain her innocents. Okay. And what do they based that on that charge on? What exactly are they saying that she's done to actually have this charge of terrorism leveled against her? So if you read the charges, it is. There are so many charges, for example, applying for the United Nations, Uh, tweeting on Twitter and using social media to advocate for women's right. There are everything related to her activities on also being in contact with international NGOs like A mysterious into a Miss Stanton on the international or Human Rights Watch, etcetera, but also contracting, for example, the UK Embassy and contacting that European Union representation in Saudi Arabia and they consider those two entities or was also Netherlands. Those three entities as terrorists of foreign entities. So it is a bit strange. They are allies and at the same time considered as a terrorist Indeed, yes, that's that's an argument that has got many contradictions in it hasn't it and also that the court dismissed planes that she had been tortured whilst She was held now you would dispute that. Exactly. So it was two other whole process and the acceleration off the trial started almost two weeks ago and into its ago. It was mainly about the charges against the grain. And when that don't say OK, bye. Next session, I will pronounce that the verdict. And she said Lujan said Okay, but you never investigate on the church. Er how? Come on. This is okay. We will start and the next day It was, um, a to the regular courts at trial regarding the church er and two days after they said Okay, we did the investigation and we are Conclude that there was no torture. So it was you say, and she says, And she says, What exactly happened to what your detail is quite horrific. It is extremely shocking. So it's impossible to imagine that such things could happen in prison. And especially, I mean When we say Saudi Arabia we know that the situation off women but also the women. We try toe over protect themselves. Sometimes it is impossible to imagine that men they do all these bad things to a single women on a so she was even sexually harassed, electrocuted. It's hard to eat. It'll, uh, getting very sick and yes, she was shaking a difficulty to breathe Exeter for a couple of months. And of course, she was incarcerated just shortly before women or her campaign to allow women were one of the things allow women to be able to drive in Saudi Arabia actually got the go ahead, so she hasn't experienced that. But she can Be released from jail as you say the release convey as early as as the spring next year, But I guess if she wants to carry on campaigning, that would be a problem for her. She may end up back in inside jail. So what is she communicated to you? She intends to do Who's she looking talk to to help her. Well, First of all the main, you know, you need to choose your battles, certain points. So the fight she's doing right now. She is T o to prove that she was tortured. So this is the first thing and also to get her innocents. So I guess, uh, doing those fights. It is her priority for the time being. We will see later on Okay. We're good to talk to you. And we will obviously be following that story very closely to find out what happens to Lucien. I'll have little on her release. That's a sister Talia. I'll have through. Thank you for talking to me today.

France takes careful vaccine approach to counter skepticism

"Happening. I in britain in america that simply because of the regulatory approval prices european medicals agency hadn't quite finished its testing. It wanted a bit more data onto the study studies little bit longer. And so the vaccination has been approved by the block and will be rolled out by the block in a unified effort. Yes what happened. Is that the eu father. European commission has set up a central purchasing arm which has bought roughly two billion doses. Vaccines from many different manufacturers. Among advantage of this system is that because of the enormous purchasing contracts the prices sometimes been a bit lower than in other places and having bought them as they become delivered they will be handed out to the european member states strictly in accordance with that population. And how about that sort of national level roll out how. How is that progressing. Already how do you see it. Progressing future well. The interesting thing will be with the benefit of hindsight to see what the best way of doing this. Every country is doing it in a slightly different way so for example in bulgaria. Medical workers got it first in germany and learns the very old. I in the czech republic. The prime minister andrei bobby. Scott i now he is himself ferry olden and somewhat overweight and probably did need to have the vaccine but he clearly jumped the here on the other hand. You could argue in countries. there's liable to be a bit suspicious of vaccines. It makes sense to have a high profile vaccination of a public figure because there's a fair bit of vaccines skepticism around this a great deal of vaccine skepticism around france according to the polls is one of the worst offenders here and they routinely i. I've seen number sang as high as forty percent of french. People say that they want to have this vaccine. And so all of this discussion is predicated on the biotech vaccine. But others are in the pipeline. I mean how do you see that playing into the dynamic here. Yes of course. The one that people are most interested in is the oxford astrazeneca. one because it's far cheaper than others typically costs about two two dollars rather than twenty dollars a day. Spur but patsy for more important it can be stored at normal temperatures. The fis vaccine have to be kept very cold temperatures indeed so it means the vaccinations can really only take place in hospitals or well-equipped centers. And it's much harder to get out into communities. There's a french well made by sun. Ofi which i'm sure will be pushing very hard to to get rolled out sued the other ones too including some wants from china and russia which some countries in europe a key to take because they're cheap and because they may be available but i don't think they will be very widely taken up and on that matter of availability. How is that unified distribution effort playing out eu solidarity over the purchase and distribution of vaccines is a bit of an issue. The european commission wanted this to be a great european project with everybody following the rules and the commission doing all the buying and selling the prices and having it out to everyone. And i think they sorts. I'm afraid to say as a great sort of propaganda coup if could pull it off and they more or less have pulled it off. But we've seen impatience in a number of countries germany in particular who say hungary actually one or two others. They're worried that the eu hasn't bought enough of the first one available. That's defies the vaccine said. They have bought their own supplies. That is very bad. In a way the whole reason why the eu went down the suit in the first place. Was i difficult to keep prices life but also to make sure that you didn't get into a situation where every country was bidding against each other by much more than it needed so there has unfortunately been a bit of that but on the whole the system seems to have worked pretty well. I think the biggest problems actually would. These drugs are log to be availability so much as ability to actually get the stuff out that and with that in mind then do you think that. This approach has increased european unity or just given more opportunity for divisions to arise. I think on the whole it's been a plus for the e you sort of as a central organizing principle that that seems to be pretty much the way the singers in brussels they see this as a bit of a triumph that they got everyone more or less to the start line more or less the same time. There's been a bit of teaching but not too much. The interesting thing will now be. Do they use this as a way to build up further. You wide healthcare competences. So will it be more of this coordinated by will be be more of this planning for pandemic preparedness and for instance declaring health emergencies on an e. You roll the leaving it to the national governments spaces. So yes i mean. The bureaucrats in brussels never miss an opportunity to build their empire fair enough. That's the business that they're in. And i think that if this goes well that will have helped that person long a bit and as opposed in in any case getting these things out and to the people throughout europe couldn't have come soon enough we all really at a very very bleak point in the even lucien of the pandemic in the second or even third wave. I've had three hundred fifty thousand people in the eu. Already dad's up. The death rates in germany are close to a thousand today that set the whole phenomenon of creating and manufacturing and distributing vaccine in under a year is pretty remarkable. We lose sight of that. But it's still been an awful awful tragedy.

Why Do We Seek Comfort in the Familiar?

No Stupid Questions

Why Do We Seek Comfort in the Familiar?

"The band's. I love the books and movies of already read and seen the poetry that i love etc i wonder if there is existing research that explains that is common and also whether the need to find comfort in the familiar increases with age and conversely whether the desired try out new things requires both a positive outlook on life and the physical energy to do so. So let's start there. Angie what say you to that query. This is such an interesting and deep question. There's actually a lot of research on the idea of finding comfort finding enjoyment in things that we've done before so one early finding that's relevant here is called the mere exposure effect. This is the idea that merely experiencing something was second third or fourth fifth sixth seventh and eighth time the more you're exposed to it the more you like it without anything really changing so even if it's something that prima facie you may not have thought you'd like or maybe even didn't like that exposure makes you like well. The original psychologist is robert science and he would show people in his studies in nonsense syllables. They didn't really have any meaning. And the first time you see a probably have more of a neutral response but then the eighth time the nighttime it's like you like it and you like it more and more with more exposure which is really remarkable. It is remarkable. It's interesting question to me too because in a way it's obvious why. Why do you think that is well. Because if you're feeling uncomfortable you would seek out the opposite which is comfort and the familiar is more comfortable almost by definition than the novel right. I guess i was connecting familiar and comfort in a way that maybe is an obvious but to me it felt obvious but on the other hand you could also imagine that during tough or unsettling times you'd want to stir things up to read or watch or explore new ideas that may help you get into a new frame and take your mind off what's distressing so i can see both sides but i have to say i totally identify with masha and i do the same. I'm curious if you do angela. Yeah i mean. I like most human beings in times of stress tend to seek the familiar and the comfortable and the lower risk. Love actually probably the greatest film that's ever been made and every time i see it and i can't even tell you how many times because it's been so many i feel comforted. It's like a warm cinematografica hug. Is it a romcom what you've never seen love. Actually i've heard of it. You've never seen love. actually. I don't see a lot of movies. Maybe that's why i'm so uncomfortable. The gist of love actually. It's like several intersecting love stories. You had me intersecting. Okay that says and each of them has aspect which is bittersweet and get a humorous. But the thing about this movie is you know what's going to happen. You know that you love what's going to happen and instead of that making it a diminished experience. It's almost better the team at the time. I don't know if this is just a pandemic coping mechanism. Actually i think there is good research that suggests that's pretty universal so somewhat argue that emotions like fear and also emotions like sadness. Get us to withdraw a little bit to that which we know is going to work and conversely happiness and safety and contentment tend to get us to be a little more venture. Som what's called broaden and build theory. This is work. Barbara frederickson and others. So i think we're all in a kind of state of uncertainty. That makes us want to retract a little bit. Even if you're right even sometimes trying something new might be exactly what we need. Can you tell me a little bit about this. Broaden and build theory which. I've never heard of yes so well. We know why we have fear like if we didn't have fear we'd get eaten by a tiger and we also know why we have the cousin of fear anxiety. Like oh i'm anxious about this test or i'm anxious about this thing is going to happen so i prepare for it more. All the negative emotions had been catalogued understood in terms of their evil lucien airy function for survival. So barbara. Frederickson is a psychologist who wondered. Well why is it across culture that we have certain positive. Emotions like happiness contentment surprise. Like aw and so forth. And that led to broaden and build theory which she's spent the rest of her long and storied career studying which is basically the idea that when we experience these positive emotions they are assigned a signal. That things are going well. And therefore now is the time to broaden and

Early Mammals Had Social Lives, Too

"Six million years ago a group of small mammals huddled in a borough in. What's now montana. They were good diggers most likely furry and petite. They could sit comfortably in the palm of your hand. I mean if you saw them running around today you probably think it looks like a small rodent of some sort like a chipmunk or or a a mouse or or something like that lucas. Weaver is a mammal paleobiologist at the university of washington. These little creatures didn't belong to any of the three main mammal groups on the planet today. Which are the placental. Mammals like us monitoring like the platypus and marsupials like koalas and kangaroos. Instead they belong to another now. Extinct group called the multi to berkowitz their teeth. Is what really distinguishes them from. From any other group of mammals they have these really bizarre molars with these multiple bumps on on the teeth which is where they get their name. Multi typically it just means many bumps. weaver in his colleagues have studied the fossilized skulls and skeletons of these animals dug up in montana. And they've given him a name. Philippe amis prime. Mavis friendly or neighborly mouse. The details are in the journal. Nature ecology and lucien. Weaver says drought or climate. Change may have killed the animals though. It's hard to be sure. But the critters were fossilized together in ways that suggest they sought out each other's company. That's a big deal because it's commonly thought that social behavior didn't arise in mammals until after the death of the dinosaurs. Ten million years after these smokers hung out together the narrative for decades his been that mammals that were living during the dinosaurs were mostly solitary rat like creatures that were kind of scuttling the night under the foot of dinosaurs. In so the fact that we're finding these multi berkeley mammals totally unrelated ancient group mammals. That's apparently exhibiting social behavior means that this was probably not uncommon among these early mesozoic mammals. And it kind of changes. The narrative of sociology is somehow unique to placental mammals. Even today social behavior is relatively rare among mammals but these findings suggest the need for company in some mammalian species is an ancient

What Does A Biden Presidency Mean To US Foreign Relations?

"Might Joe Biden's presidency mean for US foreign policy with us, now three of NPR's international correspondents in some of the regions that are most consequential to the United States? NPR's Emily Fang is in Beijing. Lucien Kim is in Moscow and Jane Arraf is in Erbil, Iraq. Hello to you all. Good morning. Morning. So, Emily, let's start with you. The relationship between the U. S and China right now is quite tense. How was news of of President Elect Biden's win received in Beijing. Well, there wasn't much news because two days after the election results were called noticeably Absent is any official reaction from China's leader, She Jingping, He's not put up a message. By contrast in 2016. She congratulated Trump hours after the race was called this year. Foreign Ministry has dodged every question we've had for comment on their views about the election, and the silence is not because China prefers bite in over Trump, Trump of replied, And it's more out of an over abundance of caution because Trump has not officially conceded. Seven China's view It does not want to take a side if you will, and until someone is definitively inaugurated, and Trump still has more than two months left in office so he could put significant pressure on China. Still, if he's provoked Okay, So China's taking a wait and see approach Lucy and there was all of this concern about Russian potential Russian interference in this election. We didn't see much of that. How is Moscow, reacting to the prospect of a Biden presidency? Well, it's interesting. It's very similar to the situation in Beijing here. The absence of any congratulations from President Vladimir Putin has been noticeable today. His spokesman told reporters that Putin will wait for official results because Trump has not conceded and wants to dispute the the count in the courts. One prominent Russian who did congratulate Biden, his opposition leader, Alexei Navalny. He's recovering from a poisoning that he blames on the Kremlin. The day after the U. S election. Navalny went on social media to say that the suspense about who Would eventually when the race was evidence that America's elections are real, but officially on state TV. The main message is that this election was marred by irregularities and fraud. So in a sense, not that different from Russian elections and the messier the transition of power is in the US, the better it is for the Kremlin because the US stops looking like a model democracy. Well, that's interesting. Jane, China and Russia both taking a wait and see approach did Iraqi leadership say anything this weekend? They did. They generally welcomed Biden's election. And, you know, there's not expected to be really a dramatic or immediate change in policy. One of the big issues here is withdrawal of US troops and Biden like Trump is in favor of those, But I gotta be honest Officials here are breathing a sigh of relief. You know, one of them put it. Will no longer be one tweet away from learning of major foreign policy decisions. And then there's the fact that Biden you Noah's head of a CZ, a member of the leading member, ranking member of the Of Senate Foreign Relations Committee and then the point man on Iraq. For then President Obama knows the leaders here and he knows them well, and that will make a difference. I spoke to one senior Iraqi official who said he's dealt with them in years for years. Sorry, and and the thing that stands out is Biden's essential decency, he says. Decency. OK, Lucien Joe Biden known for his decency, Yes, but unlike President Trump, he does not seem primed to like Vladimir Putin or to soft pedal things with Russia. How might his election change the U. S Russia relationship? All right. There is no expectation here at all that Biden will be easier on Russia. I spoke to one of Russia's leading foreign policy experts fielder Lukianoff about what he expects from a Biden presidency. They don't think that many people at Moscow believed that the U. S will be able to be back to the old good days of liberal order as it was in 90 Sorento Seldon's, But the rhetoric will be ah, muchmore like Obama or even Clinton spirit. So in other words, the expectation in Moscow is that Biden will bring up human rights and democracy and also take a greater interest in what happens in the former Soviet Union. There is no love for Biden in Moscow. He met with Putin when he was vice president and has been very critical of the Kremlin. But those negative feelings aside, there is also a certain trump fatigue in Moscow. There were really high hopes for years ago and today U. S. Russian relations are at their lowest point since the Cold War. So there is some hope in Moscow that Biden will be more predictable and be able to start a sober professional dialogue on pressing bilateral issues of the first one that comes to mind his arms control. More predictable. Emily might also be interesting or helpful to China, right because it's been four sort of madcap years of trade wars and overnight tweets. And yet Beijing's position in the world is different now than it was when President Trump took office, isn't it? Yes, it's gone from what was then A developing regional power, too, in the U. S has eyes and this is accurate. A global competitors and that growing more negative view has led the US over the last four years to sanction Chinese officials, major Chinese companies and to limit the number of Of Chinese people who study and work in the US, But within China, you have the inverse of this negativity. China's had this surgeon self confidence since 2016. It's controlled a corona virus pandemic. It's produced some truly global companies, and that gives Beijing a sense that this is China's time to shine. And right now we're at this hugely uncertain moment in the relationship trumps refusal to conceive means that there's even warn certainty because Beijing cannot decide what its next move is going to be right now. Okay. If China is under the impression that it is, it's time to shine economically makes a lot of sense. Does a president Biden change that in any way? He could. Biden is expected to continue to push China and human rights issues such as Hong Kong civil rights Xinjiang, where hundreds of thousands of people have been detained. Remember he called cheating Ping a thug during one of the last presidential debates. But many in trying to hope us under Biden will temper the relationship and cooperate on things like trade and climate change. But Biden could also have a much more multilateral approach and that could actually put pressure on China. And Jane. Lastly, I want to reach back into history. Joe Biden once suggested that Iraq would be better off his three separate autonomous regions Kurdish, Sunni and Shiite. How was that idea held up? Yeah, so he was suggesting autonomous regions, but still with the central government and here in the Kurdistan region of Iraq, they very much welcome that support for increase power to the regions, but in other places it was seen as fuelling Iraq's sectarian divide. And there's still a bit of concern about that idea. But a lot of it has moved on to concern about Iran. And on that one he's seen as not being quite a cz obsessed with isolating Iran. So even some militia leaders here have welcomed his election. Okay. NPR's Jane Arraf in Erbil, Iraq, Emily faIIing in Beijing and Lucien Kim in Moscow. Thanks, everyone.

"Let's get a look at the stimulus story in detail that doesn't mention their chances for a pre election agreement on fiscal relief appear to be in jeopardy now. Earlier, Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin pointed to political dynamics that would undermine the month long negotiations with Democrats. I'd say at this point getting something done before the election and executing on that would be difficult just given where we are in the level of details, but we're going to try to continue to work through these issues. Lucien was asked whether Democrats air holding back out of optimism on controlling the Senate after the election. This would allow them to speed through their own bill, which is higher than what's being discussed with the administration. Lucien said. Well, it's definitely part of the reality from the other side today, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and said that Democratic priorities would be cut in any deal based on the current White House offer.

"So I know you've been on the promotional tour, you've you've recounted the million times but if you don't mind, could you walk us through the event yourself? If you don't mind, you can reconstruct the work you were doing at the courthouse moment you trip the alarm to the authorities and the response when they arrived. To Take Gee. I suppose. So see. If. We're just going over that portion of it. We we actually arrived at. Eleven thirty ish if I if I recall correctly. Kinda to walk lock around the building when I say walk around typically when you go to building and you haven't been there before you walk around and you check out our walk around was we parked in the back and walk to the front. When. We got there the the sheriff's department actually right across the street from the courthouse. So it wasn't like wasn't surprised that we knew that the the police were close by Yeah. We walked up and Justin was trying the door at the same time I was trying a badge that we had taken from another building just to see if they had multi- building access inside I was beep than Justin Open. MIC there. was. No is just open I was like Oh. Okay. Just just just shut the door. Then we proceeded to bypass the bypass the door just to just to give them the bit of another doubt. In this. Scenario this engagement. Overall, there was overlying theme which was real easy access to everything. And so this was another one of those times where you just kind shook our heads said, okay. Let's give them the benefit of the doubt. Let's what would happen if there wasn't a mistake or what would happen if somebody did leave the door wide open somewhere else. which again was a recurring theme. So we shut the door and then and then just went from there. Was it just that the door had like not closed all the way or something like that. Yeah. That was that was old more right old oral, real super super old courthouse right They still have they literally still have the. The the original latch on the doors from. Hundred years ago probably. Of course, they've up. There's my dog. Thank you. They've they've upgraded thing on the show today. They've upgraded things In. Putting a crash bar in the back of the door itself but the the actual old school locking mechanism of the door is is still there. And I think that's actually what what interfered was the old locking mechanism of the of the old door handle that was there and then to latch wasn't able to. Branch if I remember right I wrong but so you heard the alarm going off and you're like, okay, we're just GONNA wait until they get here and we're going to explain ourselves and then they they arrived in they didn't want to hear an explanation. Kind of actually there's there's a little bit more to it than that. We as soon as we went to the door, there's alarm panel around the side in part of what we do is to make sure that people aren't using default codes. Because a lot of people set up their alarm and they never changed certain. Or something, and it's always the same depending on on what what what company are using, what companies installed. Okay arpels. So that's the first thing we did was try make sure they're not using default codes. Usually have twenty to thirty seconds depending on the alarm system to to punch in said Code After we did that after we went through the the codes that I could remember. We actually suffer arms ourselves. I just kept hitting the same number over and over and over again to see if it had a lockout on it and probably the third code I tried to. Go I tried orange and say the third entry of the bunk code I knew it wasn't going to work actually sent it off. So did Iguana, about ten seconds early. So as soon as the alarm actually went off in earnest. And started blaring. I turn to Justin. Justin was actually there for. kind of I don't want say Training Regiment because the guy is brilliant but it was like the next step in the Lucien is he was he was supposed to take over the physical aspect of of testing coal fire, and so part of the winning the lead of that is to teach others, and so that is basically what it was for is is that was supposed to be Justin's Justin's. Way You WANNA say certification in iterating or. Whatever whatever you WANNA call it where I came gave him the ominous dominance. You're good to go and you can go train train everybody and take over the physical world. This is what it was. So yeah, I was making him making him. I was letting him make all the calls right and so what do you WanNa? Do you WanNa? You WanNA bounce or do you want to stay here and against onto the training is to see which which he would do but I, you know I helped. Trained because I definitely didn't do that but I helped train justin on a lot of things I know he makes the right decisions because I helped to make a lot of those. So. But again, once again, his decision making was impeccable. And he's like we're not doing anything wrong GONNA get out of jail free card. We're here under the owner of the customer solace. Let's just right in see if. Law enforcement shows up. That's what we did I mean and to be honest, it's the right call. There's a lot of a lot of people in the industry that would've left. Ryan and there's a lot of people in coal fire that would have left and that's the wrong choice never get your. Your sort of saying you're you're you're telling a different story than you mean to be telling imagine. Because Perpetrators running yeah. There's yeah there's this and we've actually given. We've actually given talks on this is there's a lot of people out there who have this this pride welled up of never being caught. And it's it's if you've never really ever getting caught, you're never really pushing the boundaries of your writing testing every aspect of the customer that you should be testing. You're you're letting your pride get in the way of well, I've never been God never been. Like you're not testing right if you've ever been caught. Identified that threshold I will. There's one thing that went into that decision making process to you. This was kind of midway or almost towards the end of week on. Working on and every other facility we were in no alarms were set off no response. So this was kind of first time we're hanging around with like all right. We need to see if law enforcement shows out actually response to this situation and he Yeah. That's. That's something for the report. Right there is. If you know if an alarm goes off in, they're like, oh, now it's probably fine. Happen before. Yeah. Light. Same proximity to the police station, they're not wired up the dial out.
