Austin family were in my podcast compound is I deemed it last Tuesday on the show. I've got a bunch of deer heads hanging everywhere. I've got my Pearl bear neon clock spinning around like a rotisserie chicken. I actually have a few clocks in my wife says why are you putting that clock right in front of you? What was my answer? I like to look at neon when I recorded my podcasts. Clocks when I talk. Anyway, I'm trying to get this hang out a little bit. I got to work Matt underneath me. I've got furniture pads everywhere tried to block of sound. I got the door shut. You talk about the other items in here. Well, again, we're doing some remodeling. There's a bunch of damn mattress bed frames and stuff like that. It looks like shit, man. I've been telling everybody for the past. I don't know how many months because as much as time fanatic. I am on a minute to minute second second our to our basis of the day right now, it's eleven twenty five and a half spot cast. I can't remember what I told you guys. I was gonna finally dropped my robots go ranch Margarita recipe. I don't never dropped. It just goes shit. I was doing other things, and basically too lazy to do it and felt a little bad about maybe dropping that recipe because I got it from this place. Kristen and I go to all the time in marina del Rey. And I didn't just want to infringe your copy their gimmick or their recipe verbatim. And then give it out without giving him credit was I didn't invent it. But I don't want to name the place where we got it from to give them credit because I don't want anybody to know where we go you refer. Find the recipe. Well, that's what I'm getting. Because I did refined. It I'm gonna give you both recipes because mine might be a little too stout for you. But I'm gonna give you the one that I got from them verbatim. Try that one out or if you are drinker like me, try mine out. It was a great recipe. But the thing is with the Margarita you've got to take your time and make it, and I know you'll sit there a lot of people that are bartenders or drink aficionados going to listen to podcasts your full of shit. You can make a Margarita fifteen seconds. Yeah. You probably can. But the way I hand craft and slowly construct mind. There's a lot of intelligence research tried and true research, my liver can speak for it passion and just extreme science that goes into my recipe and the way I manufacture each one. And then. You know, I have my basic formula, but dependent after I take that. I I might modify just two frogs hair and put one or more ingredients back into it to add to it. So I'm going to give you a couple of different recipes to precisely. I think the second one is the best one that's going to be my go-to recipe. But anyway, and what's the name of your recipe is brokers? Go ranch Margarita. Okay. And we've been drinking knees. We start off drinking men Danner, south, Texas, and let me give you my history with the Marguerita. And what's that evolution? Well, not really have Lucien but just with alcohol in general when I was in high school. I basically never drank because I was so dedicated to my pursuit athletics football and track. I was always the guy that was pumping iron on concrete patio, outside our bedroom. I had this little plastic cement, you know, weight bench which will had back in the day. You know, the guys was under football and stuff and these days it's all steel plates. But back in the day was cement, and those plastic little gimmick things, and my younger brother, Kevin he'd invite all his buddies over and they'd be out to I raise inhale, drink and beer, obviously they were underage. He was a year behind me in high school, and they've been to raise hell I'd open a damn window because I was trying to get my beauty sleep. So I can grow some muscle tissue, fiber and get stronger and better NAT Lennox not say shutoff fuck up eight fuck off and they'd keep part in. But anyway, when I got to college, you know, well, started drinking a little bit more my senior year if you beers. Here and there my first endeavor with beer was when I was older brother, Scott somewhere and hand me a beer, I won't say the name of it. It was a regular bear wasn't a light beer. I thought it tasted like shit. Bear wasn't for me. Then I got an athletic scholarship to Warton gatty junior college. And I became a pretty good friend of beer, and I drink every day, I'm shit bear. There was from the cheapest stuff and world light beer to some of the regular beers and got into the Newcastle. Browns and stuff like that again is stuff from England. But in college and junior, college me, and my buddy, Robert Webb from college station. We really got a liking to that wild Turkey one. Oh one. And man, we drank each shit at that stuff. And I got another scholarship to North Texas state university in Denton, Texas. And then I was so involved in football. Maybe every now and then on weekends. I go get tangled up, and you know, Chit some whiskey here there, but it was mainly bear. Keg beer stuff. Like that. You know, when you go to somebody's place for part? And it was always kick beer, and then got the business pro wrestling. And that's when it was pretty much, a twelve pack or eighteen pack Olympic head eighteen fax back. Then you know, we after we worked at sport tore on Friday night. You know, everybody goes liquor store and jump on a bus veered. Your had we drive all night to Memphis, Tennessee to do TV in the morning. So that was a beer run. And then, you know, basically, my my first few years in the business was pretty much all beer, and then started getting into you know, because of all my hunting getting back into hunting started ranking crown Royal drink a lot of damn crown Royal and always loved the whiskey I'm starting to drink a little bit Jack Daniels now, but in the Jack Daniels got into Botka, and I was bringing a vodka when my wife was a fan I like Martini's lager martinis. So anyway, we've been. Linking him Dan martinis forever. And Kristen had house in Venice still has it. And we were sitting her backyard with the chimney. I go on a little bitty started logs in there, and we put a little bit of Ken Lynnwood in there to keep a fire going, and we'd have you know, two three four drinks. And I barely would have to what Chris she was working regular job. She was teaching every day. And so I kind of corrupted her to two hundred grease. She was already drinking. But once I moved in it kind of turned into a lot more frequent occasion. It's just we really enjoyed sitting outside looking at the stars. And sitting by the fireplace darts, listening to music. Yeah. Now that was our thing man, throwing darts, and it'd be cold, and you know, back in and got come back. Then it man we'd start about fire. Anyway, we're sitting on the fire drinking, those drinks. And then finally, you know years went by and that was when I decided after hunting in Mullen County Down here in south Texas is us out of Tilden. That's when I knew that I wanted to buy a ranch, and so we bought the broken skull ranch. You know, back in two thousand seven and Chris not have been drinking Margaritas before then obviously her on her own time me and mount I'm in a little bit together. When you go to Mexican restaurant, you get Marguerite. And everybody knows that Mexican food is my favorite food. So when you go in there, and you order Margarita, you get whatever kind of Margarita they serve now back in the day. And my formative years, you know, those Margaritas were just fine. But once it got down in south, Texas, you're in the middle of nowhere. You gotta make the Margaritas yourself. So we went and got the Jose Cuervo brand. It was Jose Cuervo Margarita mix not bad stuff. Lots of sugar, but in a Margarita in general, you're going to have that sugar. So it is what it is. So I ended up as I started the broken skull ranch Margarita Danner in south, Texas. That's the name I created, and I was basically using patrol, silver and Jose Cuervo. Margarita mix use salt on the edge of the glass. What else was I end to a mess? Pretty much. It was pretty much it. Yeah. You can make pretty damn good Margarita used in that. I know you'd add triple sec to a little bit of trouble sick here and there, but for the most part if you just had to ingredients, you could make Margarita and those were fine when you're in the middle of nowhere, and that's all you know, and for most people if you just go to a restaurant ever here, and there, and you just get the different style of Margarita, they serve that's what you know. And you the put up with it, or that's what you like once you find a really good Margarita from place at hand makes them because I don't believe in all the Margarita machines. There's a place we had over here. They make their Margaret as they come out of machine. It's just pre-measured bullshit as halfway like drink and just a lime Kool-Aid. Sometimes I don't even believe there's any tequila. And so those in my opinion, I've drank a million of them. And if it is what it is. It is what it is. But I prefer not to. So anyway, fast forward all those years me and Ted Falah three six one, and my wife would drink one many times right before we were getting a deer stand around three three thirty. We'd have Margarita. Our and I would make so's yeti tumblers. And these things were triples of not quadruple, not mine now of tequila neither along with them. She not cheers Ted is or hot. You could basically almost melt about him yet and tumble with them. Christians were not and also she was in a smaller tumbler. So we'd drink to those. We'll we've got deer stand and sit there and just got into enjoy the scenery watch the deer and do what we did. And then after we came back from cleaning deer or whatever we had to do. We'd fire up and started drinking beer turns out, my wife, and I moving together Raina del Rey. There's an all out of sequence. But we were living together, marina, del Rey, and a friend of mine turns us onto this place that he's a member of. So we decided, hey, man, this pretty cool place. We'll join up and become members. And so, you know, we go there and I'm in beer-drinking mode. This was a little bit before broken skull ranch up was created a loud myself, rob crocs, salt on the gang gonna burn company. And this is when I was still fine tuning my craft beer. Ear pallet. I went from ringing light beer for over thirty years and every state that ever worked at and how many rings and all of the United States and worldwide doing celebrations after the show after match or whatever what's I got through with all that shit. I just figured there's got to be a better level of beer. So I started drinking craft beers. And when we joined up at this place, they had four beers two of which were light the other two one was dark bear. And the other was just a regular like a pale ale. But it wasn't worth a flying. Fuck so I didn't drink it. So since I'm in beer mode, and now I've been through you know, vodka mode whiskey mode whine mode tequila mode. So since I'm in beer mode right now. But they ain't got a beer this shit. I need a drink and going back to my snobby days with the or left of my devices about the way people make drinks when you go to a club and. Want to tell that story about the casino? We went to Kristen about those those rings. Well, let's just listen tell us store right now because out here this will just follow the point. And I'm going to get to the bottom line and give you this handcrafted recipe. So Milan, I at the Broncos go two point, oh, we decide to go in town and get a steak. Well, I'm gonna get a steak my wife's vegetarian, so we go to this restaurant, and we walk in and the host texts. My wife to the table. I see the bartender. I go directly to the bar because I know that I'm going to order a Margarita because that's what I've been living on here in Nevada for the past year. And my wife's looking around like or the fuck Steve Martin over, you know, grill into bartender asking him. What is recipe is for Margarita and my wife rose arise because she gets mad or than hell at me. When I start grilling people about how they make their drinks. But that's how picky I am. We got pissed off at me. I was because it's like I'm not gonna go to the back until the chef how to. Pair your steak or how to prepare my spaghetti or whatever, you know. I know, but I just thought it'd help some, but you out anyway, you just have to let things go and you get to restaurant. It's not gonna I got into it is, but it's using machines. So you pretty much guy said is basically a machine kilos machine. And I said well, fuck it. I gave him my recipe in any kind of added a few of my ingredients to his already made Margarita mix and all of a sudden, my wife ordered a glass of red wine. I get my Margarita, and it ain't worth a flange yet. And because I've been Spalding myself drinking Mon drink it. Because he's watching you know, I I drank about shit. I drank maybe I drink it down maybe two inches. And I said man, this is ain't worth a fuck. I can't do it. So without further ado, here's the recipe for broken. Go ranch Margaritas. I'm gonna give you the original. And then I'm going to give you my version, but I. On. But as you know, that is the one and only Jimmy Buffett Margarita Ville, I'll never forget seeing on Monday night role Margarita Ville with the one and only the rock who would have figured that. It all my days. A pro wrestling that I would be singing with another man in the middle of a rain out right in the middle of a feud with not in a million years, nonetheless, I'm about to read off to you a list of ingredients that you will need to make the brokers go ranch Margarita. And I am referring to a pitcher that I will post on my Instagram account Steve Austin, Bs SR, here's ingredient list before we go into the specific recipe. You're going to need fresh lime. Do not use lime juice does a piss poor substitute fresh squeezed lamps. You're also gonna need one of those lamb squeezer. I will include a picture of one of those as well. It's like a pair of pliers. He put the damn lime halves inner. And you squeeze the shit out of the lambs and always squeeze my lime juice into a measuring Cup. That's just to capture it in. Obviously, you're going to need your favorite brand of tequila. There's many forms tequila out there, your NATO's rep Assad as he could Blanco's, blah, blah, whatever the fuck man, I go with patrol and silver. I like, silver tequila, clear, tequila and my go-to patrol silver. I'm not affiliated with them in any way, shape or form, but I use patrol and silver. You're also going to need triple sec. Triple sick is an orange liqueur some people will use orange juice when they make their Margaritas. I don't believe in orange juice. I don't like orange juice. I love orange juice when I'm drinking vodka and orange juice in the form of a screwdriver. But not in my Margaritas, you're going to need grandma. I think it's another derivative of kind of like an orange liqueur but grandma on. Yeah. Here's what you're going to need. Also, one of the things that a lot of people don't include into Margaritas is organic rawal blue gavee has like a syrup. As not hoodie. It's a Garvey. And I'll give you my secret to breaking that down as I hit it into my mix, and then obviously, you're going to need some Margarita salt. So that's you list of ingredients for the Margarito. Now, you're going to need something to mix it up in. Now, if you don't have one of those like metal shaker things with the stranger on end of it don't frit because that's my go-to mechanism that I liked to shake my drinks in because a Margarita should always be shaken not stirred not just pouring in the last. I was at a golf course the other day, and I asked for Margarita and the bartender proceeded to put some rocks in a Cup poor the ingredients in there. And then slid it down my way, I was horrified. I was petrified. I couldn't believe what I was seeing that was the total linked of detail that they went into making up Margarita, and it was a polish shit. So I believe. That a Margarita should be shake. And if you don't have one of those or gimmicks, here's some things that I've used I've got it yet. He tumbler with a screw on top. I've used that to shake those damn rocks. And all my ingredients up also on my Instagram posts, you'll see Steve Austin Bs are I've got a protein shake or with a it's a plastic protein shake with a screw on cap. I've used that to shake migrants before you don't have to have a metal tumbler you can use anything ill. You could put it in Tupperware if you have to shake the summit ship to get it all mixed up, but have something to shake it into don't go out necessarily by one of those metal contractions because it is it handy. Yeah. But is it necessary? No use anything that you can shake sum it up in. Now when it comes to glass, where if you go to a Mexican food restaurant a lot of the Margaritas man L serve those big ass, man. Twelve sixteen ounce twenty ounce twenty four ounce Margaritas there Cadillac. Margaritas. What they call it or whatever, and they'll serve it in a big bowl shaped glass, I've drank a Megan Margaritas out of those glasses. I don't like them. They don't do anything for me. All I want is the perfect combination of ingredients and a low balled less. Not a high ball glass, I wanna low bog lasts. I don't want just to shit pile of liquid volume and sugar that I got a swallow. I wanna predetermined measured rate of ingredients to taste like a million bucks. But it's not a shit pile to drink. So you'll see when we start adding up the answers and half ounces of this concoction that all you need is a low ball glass. And then the other thing is specified, man. Most times ten times or nine times out of ten I will use ice cubes made out of ice tray. They're big. They're chunky. They're solid. They're frozen. Really well, and they'll last longer than small rise cubes made out of an irregular ice maker. That's me being picky. Some of the nuclear physicists out there. The scientists will say, hey, Steve fuck, you ISIS is now man, this is my fucking recipe. This is how I like it to be made. So I'm telling you how I'll make my Margaritas hard ice cubes out of an ice tray. They will last longer. Keep it cold. I like, cold drinks. Okay. Here's a tip. You will find that you when you get these ingredients when I tell you to add in the gob as syrup the gob a syrup is a little bit on the thick side. So I will get a paper bowl, which I get from Costco, and the measurement for the guy syrup is just a little swirl of a guy they in a paper bowl, and you will see that pitcher Instagram account. I take this bowl. This is after I've got all my ingredients mixed this one the last things I add, and I will put the guy in the paper bowl in my microwave for ten seconds to thin it out, it'll it'll start bullying temporary, but it'll turn into complete liquid form. So that's what I do with the Gaba syrup. So here's what you're doing. When you get your your low ball glass, you won't have filled with rocks. You want even want us one of your former lambs squeezed out to get that edge of that glass went you'll dip it into your Margarita salt? That's how you salt the edge of your glass. If you throw you lambs away, just stick the glass in your mouth and rotated around while you're letting them with your damn tongue. I've done that a million times you just wanna make the damn glass wet. She can stick themselves to it. That's shoot. There's there's many ways to skin a cat. So you've got fresh rocks. Fresh rocks in your low ball glass, and you're mixing Tumba. Familar whether using a metal tumbler or a protein, shake or whatever you've got fresh rocks in there, plenty of them because you want this to be cold don't fill it all the way to the top. Because you gotta have the action of those rocks being able to go back and forth in the shaking process. So here's what you're going to do. Here is the first list of the ingredients for the Margarita that was given to me by the place that I go to here it is. Here's a recipe, and that I will give you my recipe one out of tequila. A half out of triple sec a half ounce of lime juice a drop of a vase syrup and then a half out of grandma. Now to make this drink. What you're going to do is you're gonna take your tequila. Triple sec, you're lime juice and after you put that avai syrup in a microwave for ten seconds. You don't have to this. You can just use your garbage or it's just a little thicker, and then you can put this in your shaker, and you're gonna shake that up. I shake it for ten to fifteen seconds. That's me. Then if you have a stranger you just Reiner or if your protein, shake or just open that little cap, pour that into your low ball glass, there, you have your basics for the Margarita then yard or you already have your rim salted then you're gonna pour your half ounce of grandma on Yale on top. When you do this. You have kind of like a clear kind of hazy mixture inside the glass, and it's because you've got to key triple second lime juice, which almost all is clear. But then when you float that half ounce of grandma jail on top is kind of orange or brownish in color. And it sits on top, and it just kind of trip trickles down to the bottom of the glass and just puts that different layer. And there it kind of gives it a little bit of textured flavor, in my opinion, and that is basically their recipe for Margarita. And that's what I based my experimentation on now when I went into this formulation of my own recipe. You know, I thought they were using a shot glass was an ounce and half turns out. It was an Ouch. I have this big ass shot glass, which is actually two ounces a measured it, and it was a shot glass. It was given to me by the three and twenty band when I was interviewing those guys down in Georgia Femina redneck on away back today. So that is the basic recipe right there. That's the basic recipe. I was given this is what I deviated to default to or concocted to become. My own. This is the ingredients for the brokers. Go ranch Margarita as I know it I'm using two ounces a patrol on tequila silver. I'm using about a half to three quarter ounces shade. Under three ounces of triple sec. I'm using a half ounce to three quarters of an ounce of lime juice. I'm using that squirt of a guy into a paper bowl, which I nuke for ten seconds. Put this all and a shaker full of ice. I've already got my glass ready with my rocks in it. Fresh rocks. We're not gonna use the same rocks that we shake in. I've always salted my rim. I shake the shit out some bench up on top of the fresh rocks. And then I use a half outs two maybe three quarters of an ounce of grandma which sprinkle in a circular fashion on top of that drink, then it trickles down and from there. Just let that summit sit there for. For second. And I realized that I have created the perfect broken skull ranch, Margarita and the way these ingredients shake out. I was making some down in Texas less time. I was down there visiting my folks, and I was telling my brother Kevin about this recipe. And he goes man, I've been looking for a good Margarita recipe, but I don't like mine too. Sweet. So I've got on Wikipedia I've gone onto the internet and put in Margarita recipes, and they're selling the just one of us, you know, like some lime juice to Quila, and maybe some triple sec or maybe some people just like every now, and then I'll just do, you know, tequila and lime juice. That's every now, and then, but when I went to full blown bad ass Margarita. This is exact Margarita that drink. You will find if this is too sweet for you. Try it first with the guy syrup if you don't like the guy they simply make another one any eliminate the guy. Avi. If you like the guy, but it's still too sweet eliminate the half ounce. Triple sec, I prefer all the agreements listed, but I'm just saying for some people they have kind of turned off by sweetness. And these things are not too sweet, especially when you got that two answers, tequila, I always have a shot up patrolling on the side, which I will start adding into the glasses. I drank this one. But that's me. You take about thirty minutes to make your Margarita fucking scientists. When it comes to this. I fucking around commandeer the entire kitchen. Oh, it's a mess, man. Because I've got I've got we got these big ass cutting boards that we used to have the brokers go Ryan someone custom-made force. It gave them to us. I can't remember who gave them to us, but they're bad ass. So I've got my whole setup. I've cut my lambs. I've got my line squeezer. I've got all the ingredients that I put my picture on Instagram. And then like I said I had a in that tumbler protein check or whatever use fresh rock. Important into your drink already have that that thing salted that glass, salted. And then float that grandma on. Yeah. On top. Now, make sure you look at my Instagram account. So you can see I'm gonna put both recipes up there. You'll see the BSO Margarita is my tweet version, and that's my Bill to drink. And I've bragged about this saying, I've talked about this thing for months and months and months, if you have a better recipe that you that you like try this when and if you like yours better stick with years. I can't tell you what you like, I can't tell you. And I am telling you what I like this is the exact formula that I use and as I've given you that half ounce to three quarter ounce. Liberty dial thing in yourself experiment. Right. This shit down. Once I get something to perfection as you'd like we did. We're broken skull PA. I didn't wanna fuck with that formula. I had this thing. So scientifically dialed in this. This is a Margarita there's made by me for me. I hope it fits your palate. I hope that you enjoy it. I'll hope that you never drink and go out driving. I would never ever recommend that if you in. Thing or anything if you're on a weight protocol like right now, he'll have an editor Inc. And in two days. It'll be four weeks getting in shape for project. I got coming up. So I wanted to actually make this Margarita suck at Goto, the motions and talk about it. But I'm not drinking right now. I'm not going to go make Margarita just so I can make a Margaret and tell you about it. My my point is if you're gonna drink Margaritas every single day or whiskey every single day or beer every single day. Those empty calories will pile up, and you will pay the price in the form of gaining weight. So if you're going to enjoy these Johm responsibly, don't drink them all day long every single day. Like I did. Because here's the thing. Kristen where we go down back. We used to have the bronchoscope ranch in south, Texas. I was always telling them, you know, we'd make those ones before we go hunting. And then at night, you know, before Brooklyn's, Goliath, PA was invented I drink a six pack of Sierra, Nevada. Torpedoes? I remember that those are two hundred twenty calories each I did that every single day for two months, and I'll never forget when a triple wide down there and the lighting was like you'd be like three quarters through deer season. Your thinking Thuc is much as I'm drinking immune teddy would go out there and try to slug through a workout. We're sweating bullets because we're so in. Tuck skated with alcohol. No, sleep skin endear ride around commode attractor, you know, Bush and everything, but that was our daily protocol and think man, I'm getting away with it. I'm getting away with us still pretty good. All of a sudden, Chris now would pack our shit up and either drive or fly back to Los Angeles. And I'd get back in front of my regular mirror with a regular lighting that I'm used to. And I'm like what the fuck. Did it every fucking year? But it's so fun. And it's weird to be up here in Vada because I just went on a four-day hunt. I was supposed to be on a five day hundred. I'll tell you about my just a second nothing happened. There was no animals killed during this hunt. So you can listen to the podcast if you hate hunting because nothing got killed. But Kristen remember those days, and and the thing about it is everybody knows that when I was doing broken skull challenge or redneck Allen to whatever my agents know that I take off November and December for deer hunting down in south, Texas, and it would took off the first two weeks of January as well. And then we'd get back to LA around the seventh of the tenth get everything put away and settled up get back in the business now out here, Nevada, everything has changed. But God damn those those are the good old days. But anyway, that's my that's my recipe for Broncos going ranch Margaritas. I won't just put that those ingredients head to head with anyone. I'll. But my manufacturing technique up against anyone's any day of the week anytime of the year. All you've got to do is give me a call or send me a quick send me an Email to question to Steve Austin, show dot com. And if you've got a better Margarita recipe, and you can make it better than mind, I'll kiss your fucking ice.

Any other aspects of my life. I finally got a chance to go on my mule deer hunt. And how was that? I've been waiting all year, but his trip, you know, for last for my whole life ever since I was seven or eight years old walking behind my father in the woods may Scott, Kevin. My dad always turned around with that perpetual, finger to his lips like six, which basically is the PG version of or the version of would you guys please shut the fuck up and stop stepping on every single stick. And I've been hunting my whole life. We've been hunting south, Texas, whitetail deer and hunted Texas, hold over ballgame not Nevada. So man, I went out to my last year's hunting trip in Nevada. When my brother-in-law Mitch from Nevada hunting services had five days to get the hunting down November. I v just like this year. And it turns out the first day. We went out there. I think it was the first day. Man. We haven't done a big ass book that ended up scoring one seventy five and I ended up taking that deer. And I've eaten every single out to that mate. And I'm thinking, you know, when we first started out they were sitting in chairs, and they were looking at through spotting scopes binoculars three to five miles out. It was unbelievable. I'd never say anything like it. And you know, we haven't across mind, you know, driving back to a spot that day, and I took it and I'm thinking, hey, this desert mule deer hunting. Pretty cool. That actually that hard. Fast forward this year, man, I'm all fired up like a motherfucker. I got my mule deer that I shot sitting right behind me got him shoulder mounted. I'm super proud of me. It was beautiful buck sound thinking that deer scored one seventy five I'm gonna go for something in that same category. I've been fortunate to to take some huge whitetail in my day from the Bronx go ranch, and then that south Texas area, and McMullen and LaSalle counties and now not for my second mule deer hunt. And you realize when you go out there and you build your hunting. And in retrospect after I got back, I started research into mule deer. I started reading about us behavior. It's patterns how likes to feed bad the travel corridors it likes. And when you're out there in northern Nevada and a unit we were at about eighty miles north, I guess north north east of win a Monka manual mountains. A lot of a lot of say. Brush canyons rocks mountains, and we're just riding around. I really don't know anything about the deer. So Mitch stop. And we were fortunate because we had you know, four guys on a hunt. I was the only guy hunting Mitch was guiding and looking it had two of his buddies case in Royce. Those guys are going to help spot deer. It is unbelievable. The eyesight on guys. We'll be right around at God. Damn buggy it Casey. He was probably the best Royce right there with him. His, hey, hang on there. Does a couple of of sad that Dan mount I'm looking. And the mountain is two thousand yards away the fucking. It's out Texas. You know, really, far she go see a deer on our place. You might see one all the way down to Sendero might be eight hundred yards. But most they're going to be inwards of three hundred yards were used to look in close. Even when everything green turns Brown winter. It's not that Brown and you're looking for horizontal lines. And you those dear are much easier to spot just because the biggest reason is I think they both blend into their environments to same way is just a fact is when you're used to look and within five hundred yards into one hundred it's a whole different light year away from looking you know, one two to three miles out. And then here's the thing. Kristen how patient ally not very? I have never been diagnosed by Dr with ADD, I notice myself with ADD, I fifty I'm always in a hurry. Even where I have nowhere to be and no particular time to get there. I've been hurry to get there. And I got don't you people when we had that RV we still got it. We just about to get it registered out here in Nevada recreational vehicle, that's next vehicle to me. But going back to just glassy you can park in an area, and we would park in an area. We'll get out that Dan buggy. And those guy was just start standing there. They leaned across the hood lean against something or go over to the edge of mountain and the big like a rock outcropping or something just to get you back against some just to sit there for a while. Or sometimes when we got over those ridges, sometimes wind was blowing sixty seventy miles an hour. Just something to break, the wind break your Atlanta up those guys sit out there at those damn, but. And I'd do a scan. I looked I nothing out there. And those guys gotta have it because they've been friends for so long and they'd been hunting together for so long with one of them spots, something that just go bingo. Of course, you know, it became usually big oh and in Mitch ago where and in case there there is almost like me speaking wrestling language. They're hunting language was like wrestling language. Okay. You see over net. I draw into this fucking canyon into that little whatever the words, they would use to describe the terrain, and of course. Oh, yeah. Matches. Like, oh, yeah. Yeah. They are rois got an bingo got another group over here. And it is step. They said there spotting scopes, and they're looking at the deer seeing if it's a buck. That's how far away these damn deer are still looking fifteen to twenty minutes later after they've been looking and I'm looking at where they're pointing their Benach ler. So I get the general vicinity, and I'm still looking at eight those mother motherfuckers yet. So finally, and I think case your ROY Mesa hate Steve you find him yet. And I was in barest, right? Fuck. Let me pull this patch. You off my left and right. I know I found a bit. It's so basically, no those I'm exaggerating, but almost grabbed my Benach lers in point my head and right fucking wrench after four days of that. Kristen that's when I finally settled in and started spotting the game and started recognizing the game. One time we were driving down the road the second last day of the hunt. Just I dunno miles and miles in front of us as you looked. It was just around the top of a mountain. But when you put your glasses up there is about one hundred two hundred pronghorns antelope out there all the way across the footage of them. I got some that are closer. But you put your glasses up, and all of a sudden everything would come to live. But if you just look with your bare, I you know, fuck you wouldn't see shit. So anyway, I day goes and we're riding around, and we're looking we've come across his dose last year when a shot my. Bucket was rut. So the bucks are all concerned about breeding. They're thinking about the, you know, the females, and so they get real stupid the mule deer can see like it's nobody's business. I think they can smell like a thousand times better than we could smell. They could smell us up to a over a half mile away. So their noses in play there as that's in play. And they're the masters of their habitat and then love to just lay and had. And basically, they'll go nocturnal. If you don't know what nocturnal manages that means they move at night. So you can't see their ass. And even if you did see their ass through your headlights as you were going home, you cannot shoot them because it's illegal to shoot at night. That's when that's that's when they move you can catch him. If you get out there early enough when when the sun's coming up, you can still catch them before they go to bed down right there before dark kind of catch him as a moving out to the field if they're gonna go grays of the net if they're just gonna make. Snake to a water source or something like that? That's why. Because or you'll just find find him huddled up on a he'll they'll be standing there. Sometimes, but those big mature savvy bucks are laid up in that brush. So now that I read that three days after my hunt is is completed. That's what the fuck you looking for in. There was a one time. I get to get in my phone store. Two minute. There was one time I separated from the the bunch went over set by myself, and I was glass glass and brush glass, and and Finally I just got really into with in south, Texas. You can pick up your Benach Lurs and just kind of do a scan. I mean, just just move from left to right and pretty quick fashion and you'll pick things up over there because of the distance you won't just pick things up. And because the ones that are laid down in that sagebrush and all that other stuff those limbs at they're hiding under you just don't pick out the shapes. You're looking for an antler the flash of an antler. Lord. The move of a head. In air the white on a, but maybe a little bit lighter hair on her chest you looking for any kind of giveaway three days. I guess it was spotted my first DOE bet it down in a brush, and I was like. Ding, ding, ding, ding, ding, bingo. Yeah. Hello, but fly this what the fuck you look at for. Now granted she was only about two hundred two hundred fifty yards away from me. But the fact I was able to make out the details and her she got up because I spooked her because I was standing there and she bounded off like those Mueller. It's really neat to watch that. But anyway on a segue story when you go out there to unit three or four there ain't no cell service when you use AT and T like I do. So last time last year, I never could get in touch with my wife. So when you go five days, and you can't talk to your wife. Well for me. That's not a good thing for many people who are married to the wrong. That's the case. Stay in touch. So every time we come back to the cab. I would eat Royce his phone who had rising so me and Kristin go down to the Verizon store before she headed back to LA, and I did her business, and I was gonna pack and get on my way to hunt got myself a variety and phone. What do you call it of Razek phone? Now, you call it a gimmick phone. Oh, it's a gimmick phone only gonna use it for the thirty days at a paid for you. Gotta be I think the phone. Hey, it was a pay as you go. And my wife made me go smartphone. I just wanted to the flip phone because the cell service out there were so shitty. I mean, you couldn't get anything. So anyway, you know, I was kind of out there before we got to the area where hunting the damn Baraza phone work, just fine work like gangbusters. So on a figured what hill, I'm a busy guy. I got a lot of business acquisitions coming in people looking employ or talk to a project to a global icon and an. Astral treasure fuck oneal voters button. You can push owner little green dot forward. Your calls, then you just type in a number. You want to call us four to two poached in a seven seven five giving phone number. Bet motherfucker did work for shit. I'm sitting there on the third day. It forwarded the calls it just didn't allow you to make calls. No, no, no. I never got one single phone call the other than the one I'm fixing to tell you this was that time, I called you because I would call by why it is so mission of recording would come on and say, you need to deposit more money using a credit card or this out of whatever. Motherfucker the deal was forty bucks a month. Two gigabytes of whatever unlimited calls, I couldn't make no calls. So anyway after not getting no calls nowhere. I was sitting on the side of the mountain. This is what I saw that dough I'll sitting there and watching that damn dough. And I got my gimmick phone in my pocket in case, we come into some service. I would text my wife whenever I got some service every now, and then it would like I was doing this every day or every minute of the day. Call me because I couldn't call her. And so she would call me, and I can answer the phone go all of a sudden. My phone starts ringing up sitting in Washington fucking mule deer the first mule deer I've spotted. It's no can't shoot it for a buck. My phone starts ringing on flabbergasted shot and bamboozled. How wise my phone ring and who's calling because I know you're not gonna Commodore in hunting hours. You'll send me text messages. I phone it's got name lady. From Walgreens, I go to prescription in. I'm like, well, I'm about three hundred miles away. But appreciate your call. It is good talking to you. And it's way to way a hung up the phone. My prescription was ready saw calm a wife. You were shocked that I was able to call you. Yeah. So I was like having a conversation with scared away in fucking near the county but through with that. No anyway. So anyway, my fucking gimmick phone worked. But you talked about I'm not running Verizon down. It was a disappointment. But it was it was a disappointing. You're buying yourself an insurance policy, but I called a dude. I mean, I was texting dude because I couldn't call him. I was texting to dude disown phone. He goes man, where are you in central Nevada is kind of northern Nevada, but central? Yeah. It was pretty much central. He goes manners. There's a hole in that area. And I'm ninety nine percent. Sure. You probably have a bad seven card. So we'll get that addressed the Slad. But literally the dude was trying to trouble shoot him. And that is just a real remote area. But the fact of the matter that I went to the trouble get a gotten a phone in case of an emergency this out of whatever contact. Yeah. So anyway, I loaded up my truck and this was the first dam trip. I've really gotten able to really put my Durham Maxx diesel to test, and it wasn't tested very much. I've been driving thing around here. Locally. I drove it back and forth to Los Angeles. And man at three quarter. Ton diesel truck, just ain't the vehicle we'll be driving in Los Angeles. You'll see here. Never because lots of people that work in Los Angeles used dis for four door wrong. Embed pickups, but you will find those pickups and underground parking you won't find him in Santa Monica on curb park, and we're just pull in diagonally because they're too goddamn long and too hard to turn around. And you can't really see like the pre answer the bird scooters around just because you're too high up. I'll tell you one thing we took thing out to Ohio the other day Lim Thompson, a co steals had a grand opening party for this new place. You got out there, and we took Durham max out there. Anyway, so McCollum, I can you a pro affects TM utility transport six by twelve when I pull that into trailer back from Texas and my oath threes, he seventy one which I still got that five three it would keep kicking down. I mean, that's I love that that pickup truck, and I'll never sell it. But it ain't for pull it hooked up that damn trailer put my mule owner, she hit that Dan Trump did him. No trailer was behind it enjoyed it. And these days technology on those days, they'll just so quiet and the wind in the. Sound deadening qualities of the cabinet pickup phenomenal. So you're basically writing and silence. And man, I was riding down the road listening country music. Like, I said that other podcast. I've been listened to David ball thanking problem CD that just download enough. I tunes I had a, but it is just emailed me and said David biologists came out with a new album. So I'm looking at download that I haven't seen it on itunes yet. But after the fourth day hunting, you know that first day we saw buck. The probably would have scored about one hundred and fifty which is a pretty damn good buck. But it wasn't a good. Buck is I shot last year. So I'm thinking, okay. I got day one. I got four more days to hunt. So Mitch I'm gonna pass on that book. And so I decided to pass we can't drive it around. We hiked we scouted. We looked we glassed we saw tons and tons of does and into bucks with them a little fork at horn bucks. There was an old old. Buck had just really spike horns at some trash on his right side. This wasn't worth the time of day. I wanted to go back and take him just for me. But would never found him again. So this would repeat itself our schedule would be I would get up at four AM because I don't sleep. I'd get up at four AM. I'd go in there and cook by by four meals for the day, take a protein shake, and they're not eat my breakfast here before I been left. Everybody else got up at five. I'd already drink coffee done all my she had had my ship backed up. And then we go from the Cape area. It's about an hour drive to the stage area. What you get to the staging area. Throw everything into the buggy off four guys loaded up. I'm the only guy with a rifle still dark. We're driving about fifteen miles into hunting territory. And once we get fifteen miles into the hunting territory, we might drive anywhere from forty to eighty more miles in our search that day. Day glass in different areas by the time, you usually got back to the staging area. It was give or take between six thirty and seven thirty get that our ride back to camp. You're usually back a Cam by eight you know, average at eight o'clock sorry way past dark. She you're going to have dinner everybody else's having a couple of drinks. Then you just repeat the process. I'd get back in. I'd get in bed Hughes about nine thirty because we're getting up so goddamn early in the thing about it is, you know, a lot of times the middle of the day everything stops moving. So you know in south Texas, would they stop moving? Well, we lived on a place right two thousand Eggers. So we just kind of go home, and you do work drive the tractor maintain everything all the work done. It. We need to get done. Well out there, you're there to hook. So you ain't gonna see nothing at camp. So you stay out there when the times, but it's kind of slow go and earn a. Daytime so many times we'd eat our lunch. Maybe does offer thirty minutes to an hour for nap. They would I would if I could go to sleep, but I can't sleep during the daytime. So I sit there with about my ass waiting to get ready to go again. So then, you know, once maybe, you know, kinda start glass, and again moving I mean, we hunter I asked off every single day. Looking looking looking tried busting our ass when you're out there all fucking day. And for some reason that win was just relentless it damn near ever died if we was in the low country, and we was protected it was still. But once we got up on top that first day, my wife called me because I could go her, and she goes you sound different. What's wrong? And I'm like fuck I've been at seventy mile an hour winds fucking day. I'm frazzled. I'd fucking beat. My got damn lips about to fall. I got sun. I got sun bird. I got wind bird. I got any kind of bird. You can has scratched up legs. Oh, oh, fuck man. Those guys made made fun of me. I would out that first day, and I always hunting shorts. I've been hunting and shorts and ever since we own a broken down in south, Texas headwear. Jeez. Went home dad because that was way back today, but left him own devices, you know, hill Ted founded damn near did the same thing. Halftime during December. It'd be ninety degrees visit into damn deer stand net. I was very cold. Now had on a couple of jackets. My cat. My ear protection stuff. Like that. Wasn't that go next day that co came in Mitch boys going to get cold tomorrow? And they're going to be at some bar. I'll I'll be hunting shorts. Well, I was out in shorts. But I had bought me some black loan loan John's you'll like an athletic kind. And it's it looks like it looks like tights, and I had on my camouflage shorts over the top of them. And I had a high tech magnum boots and my socks don't outside. So. I think my brother-in-law affectionately referred to me as Peter Pan. At one point those guys, they couldn't believe my outfits, but I I would not dare to give I don't like, gee, just goes, there's no fit my legs. Good. I hate where jeans every day of my life in Los Angeles. Or everyone is cold here at the ranch, I never ever wear jeans. But after that first day when you're riding up there in a Nelson that wind gets on your ass, a seventy miles an hour. You better have everything covered up because Mr. that fucking coal each you up. And so anyway, Mitch got big idea. Hey, Steve won't you Royce walk over that ridge glass over on the side sound like good idea logical. There could be near on sad, which we cannot see from here. So let's make a stoic autumn. God damn I walked through mosquito. We say rose heads it a kind of thorn Bush, you can think of in south, Texas. At every single years the same thing from my knees down and from my elbows to my hands. I was scratched up like I'd been enough thirty minute fight would FREDDY Krueger, and my wife said the same thing every single year. Why don't you put on some damn pants where lovely I'd wear my car heart. You know, when I was going to get a deer brush Malaysia, it's got scratched up. So anyway, I'm picking off fuck all that shit down here. In south, Texas. Roy said, hey, man, that's Said's rush. It's going to eat you up. I said have you ever seen the south Texas brush country? No, he hasn't. But to his point. He was right about the sagebrush. It is a different kind of animal. The mosquitoes stuff, the the we sat stuff of the rose hedges those like switchblades, they just kind of hit you. They stick you in as rip yet. They just cut you the sagebrush counter starts starts brushing on you. And it starts beating the fuck it it. It opens you up. It's like it's like a ground at bound. Whereas steps out Texas just opens. Yup. It takes a while. But after essays brush, you can look at my legs. Now. I mean, I got scabs and scars everywhere because essays breath. Maybe abstract art. It looks like I went to kindergarten and said, hey, y'all get a purple pit Andraos legs. That's what it looks like some lotion on my legs. Just try to help us scabs. He'll have been on beta way. So after walk do that brush, the things that I realized about hunting northern Nevada and walk in it, you know, after I started wearing those those leggings nowhere shorts out there that that country has to tough man, we went up to face of a mountain along these rocks, and I'm thinking, okay. The other side is going to slow down and get back on it road. Royce looks at me goes, well, I guess we'll we'll go down here. And here's the thing, man. When you come from south, Texas, when you come from sea level, you used to be in flat at regular altitude sea-level, and all of a sudden, you're up anywhere from five thousand eight thousand feet, and you're trying to walk up a steep ass mountain, and Royce he's been doing his his whole life. He's not a trained professional athlete. This is what he does he hikes. He hunts. He looks for era heads, but he's out there hoping it. So all of a sudden, my happy ask gets out there two hundred sixty pounds of flat-footed flatland, you know, that's my specialty to it up in fucking rocks. Every time we were going somewhere. He had a thirty to sixty yard lead. I'll be that. I wasn't going to close. So finally, stop and start glass. And and I'd be back taking a Brig. You know about the silliness, especially if I'm going to take a shot away. Oh, my hit nothing. I'm hoping to puff it too hard. Enter just something about, you know, something to be said for like a lot of those guys out there that are Chuck or hunting and stuff like that. They're so used to walk in those mountain ranges, it ain't nothing. But a thing to them it blew me the fuck up. He says, okay. We'll go down here. He goes is this going to be good with your knees? And I'm like, oh, yeah. I'm good shit. Did this look like a guy Dave said movie, what does Stallone to that movie? Skyscraper. Whatever it is a mountain climbing. Remember, he's hanging that see he's hanging for that damn mountain with one hand. I don't know what the fuck the movement was called. But it's like God. Dave, we're walking down this thing. I'm tripling down. Daddy, Fay's boulders. I got my gun on my back. I'm trying to hold it. I had my car heart, Jack and take McCall heart off. I'm overheat. They got a cap off fucking sunglasses off fuck it. My eyes were so God damn rid from so much dust wind blow shit. And I'm older. I'd be to walk it stick. I'm Deb your blind trying to follow Royce. Again. He's got about thirty sixty second headstart on me and down if my fucking legs their blood is pouring out of my and my calves. That's how much sagebrush beating the shit out of me. And yet that niece I got baddies on top of it. So anyway, low story short whenever sell another buck after that that was that was worth pursuing or old enough to take that would make a logical reason to take it. I did want to shoot a deer. Couldn't you know because that wasn't on the list of things to do and in because I was so busy trying to round up all my shit. Now, so organized from us moving into this new place like my south Texas setup where everything is like laid out. So that I just grab it under where everything's at go hunting. This was such an ordeal that I did get a chance to turn in that QNA podcast while I was here in town before went up to the hunting lodge. At the hunting lodge. They have a real real weak signal. You can't send shit off of it. I thought I would turn my phone into a hotspot which I've done before. And since stuff I'll that hook it up on my iphone through my computer. But we're so far in the middle of nowhere. You can't turn shit into a hot spot. So the last day I told Mitch I said man said this is going to be it. I gotta get back and turned in podcast because you know, I gotta I gotta make my deadline. I have never missed a deadline on a show of the two shows that I missed way back, but always turn my shit in from producer. So unless there's a place I can drive to go. Steve, you know, there's there's not only win a Monka, you know, what about because eighty eighty miles eighty miles back. And I think it'll help me on that. So I said well, fuck it. This will be our last day we spent that last and a location clashing. And it was the sun was going down. I said man guys. Let's call it. What about take away from this year's mule deer hunting trip was don't? Ever wear shorts out these woods again. The brush is just like south, Texas when you're out there in the elements. You got address for the elements. I gotta get props to my my hiking boots held up. I wouldn't wearing tennis shoes. This time high techs were also when I was dressing for the cold because I'm a weather Sissy being in south, Texas. I can stand the hottest temperatures co weather those off a little bit when they tell you to dress in layers dress in layers. I'd have a base layer on and then I had three shirts on top of that. I had a vest my Hooda jacket, and then my car hard on top of that. I had good gloves. I had about a cloud. Whatever you call. It was facemasks things only face sticks out of I'm trying to think what I said not in a muffler. But I we used to wear those. Head down your neck has got a hole cut out where you face comes through. I had one of those and had a wool cap on top of that and had sunglasses so dressing layers don't wear shorts have the proper footware if you hunting I was prepared to shoot out to six hundred yards. I was confident that now that I've done my research on a mule deer. Now that I had a chance to really get into glass. See the glass almost like what was that Bill Murray? Set in Caddyshack beat the ball. Get. That's golf term. He's talking about beatable Chevy. Chase whoever it was Chevy Chase. But you gotta you gotta you gotta be the glass you've got look through that glass and try to look for shapes and shit. You're not just scanning your fucking looking for detail. And then I think I would invest in a GPS device. Roy said one case had one those guys that all been hunting air for twenty or thirty years. So the no the place like the back of their hand, they didn't really need it. But for certain marker points ROY sat on his unit for certain guzzlers or water holes as they call them. They call them guzzlers. But that's what you need out there. And for what I've been reading the next time. I go I need to go out there and do some scouting. Because that was the only thing that I had done was get out there myself now that I've ridden that place so much with Mitch maybe next time I'll get a chance to get out there. And actually do some scouting he had been hunting at area pretty extensive lady nosing like the back of his hand. So we hit all the spots. Could've found some deer. But next time. I will probably take the first outstanding or really good derive see because the chances are you might not see another animal unless you do a lot of pre scouting. That is what you want had a great time. Thank Casey Royce for help. And be the is. Thank thanks to Mitch Nevada hunting services putting on a damn good hut. And I wanna thank kid, Don.

That's how picky I am with my Margarita recipe, and if no one can live up to my standards, I just assumed not drink one or drink the ones, I make it the house so be careful with this. Enjoy it. And let me tell you this. If you're gonna drink a bunch of Margaritas every single day, not workout you will put out some tonnage these things, regardless of how you make it more than someone selling US skinny Margarita mix or any of that other. She if you like it, that's fine. Go ahead and drink it. But I'm just saying anytime you start drinking a whole bunch of alcohol, and you're not working out. You're gonna gain weight until I would use these for special occasions once a week or whatever. But if you drink some bitches every single day. Like I've done during deer season your ass. We'll put on some weight. So to be forewarned is to be full armed, and that's coming from the man who's done. It all damn sheer myself at the broken skull ranch hanging out with Ted Fowler. Three six one on my own time. Mrs recipe as good as it is. If you ain't working out, we'll put weight on your so enjoy it. But don't go crazy with them. While I'm talking about alcohol.

Ep 322 - The Master and Margarita, by Mikhail Bulgakov

"This is a head gum podcast. While engine Craig believe the joy of discovery is crucial to enjoying any well told tale, they will not shy away from spoiling specific story beats when necessary. Plus, these are books you should have read by now. That look on your faces or something on your ceiling. Trying to remember how Margarita Ville goes. I refuse to let you make this into a master and Margarita Ville joke. I just don't. I think we're better than that. You think we're better than a master and Margarita Ville something, something loss, shaker, Saul. Toe Burr walking over to the podcast. The books even mean remind it was Craig. My name's Andrew. It's getting spooky and here again. Yeah, we're playing at songs hanging goes on the window like you do man. Yeah. All the all the houses around here starting to get like the big inflatable pumpkins and you got the spider webs and sometimes you got orange or purple like spooky. Christmas lights is saw. I keep walking by this house where there is a welcome mat that says, come in, we're thirsty and it's all like blood letters. Whoa. Yeah, you know what's going on in this like backward because usually it's like a vampire has to be by a vampire into your house. But when they are inviting you into their house kind of makes it makes a little bit easier. It does. It do their thing. So this weekend spook Tober I, I read a book me Craig. I am the one who read the book. These Buki. That's spooky fact. So I read the master and Margarita by Mikhail Bulgakov. And this was recommended to us by a couple of people including a patriot donor Julia. Thank you, Julia. In those of you who mentioned it as well? We have not really tackled the Russian literary canon on our show, and a lot of this came up a lot when folks were like, hey, you should read some Russian authors, maybe like we've done Nabokov. Right? We did. Yeah, we, I don't think we've done. Yeah, we haven't done any dust. I f ski. We haven't done any. What's the war Tolstoy Tolstoy like Pushkin all the. Yeah, and I'm like, vaguely goggle? Yeah. How's his name? Nikolai. Gogol Hugo. I'll talk about him a little later because I think he's relevant to this book, but he. It's a blind spot for us, but also I'm kind of intimidated by all of them because they're all. Scary serious and very big, yes. This one is not serious, nor is it too big, but it is on like a bunch of lists for one of the best novels ever or like best twentieth century novels, which just like set the bar real high guys. I know this there's this kind of would invalidate our entire book podcast existing, but like, what are we going to add to the conversation about war and peace. Really, I have ideas, but we'll. No, I actually do. Let's talk about though. I don't know anything about him. What do you know? You don't know anything about him way. Come prepared Lundy. I know some things peel. Save your baking again, back to curtain. I have some stuff, but I was trying to toss it to Andrew because I talked for a few minutes. Yeah. So he was born in eighteen ninety one in what was then the Russian empire? Yes, and is currently Ukraine, like modern day Ukraine, and then he died in nineteen forty in Moscow in the Soviet Union. He died from Nefer sclerosis, which is also called hypertensive kidney disease, like high blood pressure related thing, where having high blood pressure for a super long time ruins your kidney. Oh, my God. Yeah, so that's cool. Check your blood pressure, everybody, but it was something as his dad died from an to. It's genetic. It can be genetic. Yeah. So he prophesied this death for himself from fairly early on, which is pretty pretty rush to me. I don't know. And also like part of his. Career is be feeling credibly repressed by the state and whether or not any of his work will ever see the light of day. I imagine up my add to your blood pressure with your blood pressure disease. Mr. Boga Cobb, maybe maybe so maybe so. So he was originally doctor. He served as a medic on the front and World War One, which he was pretty seriously injured a couple of times and for a little while was leading pretty heavy on morphine to deal with the pain. But he did quit cold Turkey, like in in late twenties, right teen. And he wrote, he wrote a book in nineteen twenty six about being addicted to morphine is called morphine, whoa. Okay. Big surprise. Yes, he he, he was sick from that. He got a pretty bad bout of typhus that he almost died from. And then after that, like in the late teens and early twenties, he shifted to writing a little bit more. But he was he was interested in in writers and writing and theatre from pretty early age in school. He, his favor. Authors were Pushkin dickens and destroy us ski like a mix of English and Russian authors. Sure. And he also allegedly wrote plays for his six brothers and sisters to act out at home God. So he became a playwright and he had so you mentioned repression and censorship and stuff. He had kind of a weird relationship with Joseph Stalin who was the was the the leader of the Soviet Union at this time a little bit just like background, Russia, facts again? Yes. Soviet Union started in nineteen twenty two. This was a few years after the October Revolution in nineteen seventeen, which is when Vladimir Lenin like overthrew the provisional government. That sort of bridge that gap between the the pre czars czars and the Russian empire, and then the Soviet Union later. So solemn comes into power in the twenties and he, you know, he, he melds these ideas from Lenin and Marx with his own stuff. So they're like distinct branches of political thought that are Stalinism and then like Lyndon his and Marxism. And but but one of the big things that his, you know, his rule was also marked by was lot of censorship including most notably this thing called the great purge happened from mostly from nineteen thirty six to nineteen thirty eight where around a million people were killed for being, you know, critics of or enemies of or perceived enemies of the state that was fun. So bring this back around to our. Oy Boga. Cov are boil are boil Kokov no, no, no. Maybe maybe. Stalin personally seemed to really like his work. Yeah, he got he, he got him. Like you saw some of his plays like multiple times. Got a job in the Moscow art theatre. But the government still, nevertheless like banned a lot of his plays in eventually like stopped him from publishing entirely. Yes, stolen did personally ban a play of his called the run that was about like the horrors of civil war. And one point. So he had started Boga cov started this book as a draft in the late twenties thought it was garbage said to his wife. Now it deserves to be put in the commode under your linens, the commode and burned it, and wrote to Stalin in the nineteen thirty or other think it's thirty. Maybe early thirties, asking permission to leave Russia if he couldn't write stuff that wouldn't that like that would be published. And then was reposted at the Moscow art theatre by stolen phones like you don't really want to leave. You don't really well eve. Dealing with this. He was dealing with this censorship his entire life pretty much and. As you mentioned, he was working on the master and Margarita vill starting in nineteen twenty eight. Until his until his death. He read a version of allowed to friends in nineteen thirty nine like a little bit before he died and they all kind of freaked out when they learned that he intended to publish. Yeah, they did because it's pretty critical as I understand is pretty critical of the Soviet government. Sure. And it wasn't so wasn't actually published until nineteen sixty seven and a totally uncensored version of it because you know the they're the regime had long since changed by that point, but it was still, you know, the Soviet Union totally uncensored version did not appear until nineteen sixty nine nice. But since then it's, you know, it's been hailed as one of the most significant literary works of the twentieth century. So I'm curious to to hear a little bit more about you got any other fun book facts. Did you know? Did you know that bands such as Pearl, Jam Franz, Ferdinand, and the Rolling Stone. Have drawn inspiration from this book. I did see that. Yeah, Pearl Jam protein always bore relevant than you think they are here to say. And the interesting thing in the late sixties when the book with originally published in a magazine in like a censored version as you said, and then there was like us have been a big magazine. Yeah, I don't really understand how that works like a JC Penney catalog. I saw MS dot version, went around in the in sixty seven self published mostly complete uncensored version. And then yeah, it was published uncensored fully in France and sixty nine and then wasn't published until seventy three in Russia. And it's like final form. And there's a lot of debate that I found over translations and ask if it was if it was in Russia and originally because he did have interest in English authored knows my understanding. He wrote the whole thing in Russian. There was an original, the Ginsburg translation in nineteen sixty seven. I was hunting around for the Bergen and O'Connor version from ninety three because it had been well regarded, but the most common one and this is the penguin books edition is from Richard Pavane and LaRussa Vallejo Vallecano sqi who have kind of taken over as the the standard Russian translators. A lot of circles they've done Anna Karenina and brothers karamazov. They once like a prize for the for their translation of the idiot. They're like a team that is wrapped up in this whole business. So that's the version I read. If I think there were some turns of phrase that I was like, really. And then there are other turns of phrases that I found like charming and interesting really in a way that maybe it was just like complicated to convey the original intent or just wore like an oddly phrased. An oddly phrased bit of English of like, why didn't you use a contraction there? Or why did you structure the sentence that way kind of thing. But mostly I found it really easy to read and pretty clean. Yeah, that's all I got. Let's take a quick break and I'll tell you about this spooky masterpiece. All right. Talk about some spooky, but is that nothing spookier than an unsolved foot? You're right. So gross and like Alice's nails and fungus cover it up. Yeah. So we, we, you and I both have said that we were ever going to get rich, the one extravagance that we would allow ourselves that we would never wear a pair of sock twice. Yes. Let the socks that you won't mind wearing twice Craig. Tell me more about him. Yeah. So our sponsor this week is bumps socks. They make the most comfortable socks and history feet. They've totally re-engineered socks with comfort innovations that add up to one way more comfortable pair of socks. They've got like arch support, cushioned foot bed. Something called stay up technology where they've got like over one hundred tension levels that were tested to find the perfect tension that's comfortable. So the sock stays in place without leaving Mark pretty good and all the toes are all the toast. Yeah. All those in your socks are super soft. So you never wanna take them off plus Boma socks for every pair sold. They donate one because you can't. This is a big thing. I didn't realize you can't donate used socks, Andrew. I hope plan if I ever got rich, so I would wear socks once and then donate them. But bomas has beaten me to the punch. They ever donating one pair of socks for repair sold. I have a couple of pairs of Boma socks now. I like him a lot. I wear some of them for running. They've got some good athletic socks that also protect your heal from the back of your shoe. Got some dress socks. The dress socks to address socks. They're good socks because the problem I have with socks is that the soles of them wear out like within a few months usually. But these are thick without being to warm for the, you know, for the summer and fall and comfy, and they look really nice and I like them a lot. We like we'd like all of our sponsors here on overdue, but I say these are very good socks. What would you say these socks feel like Andrew. I'm supposed to use some fun colorful language. They feel like having your foot rubbed by. A stuffed animal. Yeah, they do. So if you want your foot rubbed by stuffed animal and you want twenty percent off your first order of Bumba socks. Gotta go to Bumba dot com. Slash overdue, that's b. o. m. b. a. s. dot com. And you'll get twenty percent off your first order. Bomas dot com. Slash overdo the code is overdue. So. Craig inter. Tell me what makes us book spooky because I've, we've gotten not a lot of feedback. A couple people have mentioned that it's not kind of a spooky, horror thrills and chills, and spills book like x. Andrew idol Yuki or that are repressive Thawra -tarian regime what spookier than an elite literary class. Having access to all the best housing in Moscow what spookier than a bunch of people Radan out their friends to get better apartments. Actually, what's really spooky is that there's a character whose literally the devil, he turns a lady into a witch and one of his friends as a giant cat Lai. I say to in response to your other questions like a skeleton. Sure. Like walking skeleton spiders as ambi-, zombie scall- student loans. Sure. That's getting back into the Monday, sorta abstract. Though when those bills come and you're not ready for them. So the devil comes down to Georgia, but not. But the Georgia next. Nailed it. So the book opens its Moscow in the nineteen thirties, and I had to keep a disavowing myself of the notion that because this book was published in the sixties, it somehow took place in the sixties. Now I'm myself. And we open in a park called if I recall patriarchs ponds, which is actually where around where Boga cov himself lived in Moscow. And we meet a dude named barely Ohs who shares a name with the famous opera composer who I Rana enough, composed Faust clever bulk cov, but is not that composer and his friend Yvonne Nicolay Avik Ponce off of. Russian name? Yes. Who has the coolest thing about the Americans probably is listening to them all like breeze through all their long. There's three or four name names. Arcadi is not a name I knew before the Americans, and there's a guy named Arcadian this book too. It's neat. Vanek lavish his pen name. I think in the Russian is best domini which translates to homeless. So he is often referred to just by the name homeless. That's his poet, pen name and barely and homeless are Chilin in the park talking about, you know how God doesn't exist in whatever. And they are members of a literary bureaucracy named mass Elit. And this is where you get the beginning of Bulga cov like critiquing the state and the idea that there would be some sort of artist, state-sponsored bureaucracy that would be that would be vulnerable to all the same corruption that your standard bureaucracy would that goes against art in in some key ways. So these guys are hanging on the park. And this professor woolen d- appears speaking in like a variety of accents. They don't know if he's German or Russian or American or fr. Ranch and he proclaimed, I think he declares himself a professor of black magic at one point and begins debating with them whether or not Jesus was a real person and we're or at least whether or not he is like grounded in any sort of historical fact, and woolens see your degree for your teaching certificate for your black magic papers a lot. And of course, this is a world where everyone is supposed to have their papers at all times. Like you're supposed to have your parents on you. Woolen does not have papers. He does not need papers because he is actually the devil, right? He tells them that he knows Jesus existed because he was there when pilots sentenced him to death, right? Which is a pretty bold claim. I might say they are in fact. Prized by. And he attempts to prove some of his like black magic nece and veracity to barely by predicting barely death that he will be killed by a Russian woman. He will be beheaded. And it will have something to do with another woman who doesn't know as well. And of course, this comes to pass after the devil tells them story about pilot when she relates us fact. And then barely Ohs is like leaving for a tram falls down into the train tunnel and his beheaded by tramcar driven by a woman turns out, he slipped on something that another woman spilt. That's how he died. So the devil, plastic classic women civilans stuff everywhere and driving trains. There's a lot of moments in this book that like bemoan tram-cars mostly the devil doesn't like tram cars. And I'm all about that public transportation. So. Speaking out against public transit, which I don't really. I can't really get behind it to maybe again, it goes back to like it's yet another state run agency that could be corrupted and let women drive train. I don't really know that that I'm saying. But I mentioned the. The pilot story because it introduces a one of the three main thrust of the book. So one part of the book is the Russian literary elite, the litter Audie. Another third of the book are these sections that take place like two thousand years ago in Jerusalem with pilot. Dealing with whether or not he's going to kill Jesus, the killing of Jesus in what he's going to do about afterwards in the book, Jesus is referred to as Yeshua. And it's, I think it's you similarly different spelling of Jerusalem with a y. I think that is reminded me of when we were talking about Salman Rushdie's Satanic Verses where stuff is changed just a little bit, not necessarily so that you think it's something different, but maybe for a little bit of plausible deniability on the part of the author like I didn't use Jesus actual name. You know, everybody knows this is about someone else, some other messiah about a different messiah whose name is sort of like Jesus and sort of like Joshua, just like gettys beezus. Favored. Devi character is beezus. So after this, like initial pilot story and the killing of barely Ohs the devil, two of his friends show up the giant black cat who at one point tries to pay for a ride on the train car, which freaks Mr. homeless out and a guys usually cats. Right free to well, he's also like as big as a hog and he walks around on his hind legs. Yes, he that. Okay. So the paying for stuff is weird, but if I were gonna like I'm surprised that you mentioned that he has money and not that he was like pigs sized and walk upright. Yeah, it's it's. Element of this book that is absurdist and a little magical realist where sometimes the definitions of things are a little fuzzy to let your imagination fill in the blanks or to allow the book to change them a little bit later, and it all still feeling okay to do so. So at times I feel like the sometimes the cat is a person. Sometimes it's a giant cat. Sometimes it shoots guns. Sometimes it tries to run on trains. Hats. Can't use guns. Thumbs. So this incident with barely is death drives Yvonne Nicolay which insane. And he starts running around Moscow trying to chase these guys down. He loses them in several crowds. He has like a series of almost like Larry, David esque Seinfeld in episodes of like, oh, he ran the wrong women's apartment and all of a sudden now he's carrying candles so he can ward off the devil. And then he thinks they jumped in the river. So he jumps in the river and comes back and someone stole all his clothes. So now he's running around the city with close and he runs back to his apartment where all of the Russian literati live and he's like, yo there, those dead and the devil killed him. In cat wrote a tram. We call the cops and they do call the cops on him and take them away to an asylum. And this is where I expected the book to stay because I wasn't really sure what the devil thing was going to be about. I thought it was going to be more of like a spooky state asylum story. Okay. Did not have any asylum? No, actually the book just leaves him to go there stuff. Got it. He does meet the titular master of of title who is a spurned. Literary author perhaps a bit of a Bulgakov stand in who is he attempted to writing novel about punches pilot, hey, that's the story that we were hearing, but it was so thoroughly rejected by critics that he burned the manuscript, much like the main group of the master, Margarita left his lover, Margarita and then was framed by one of his acquaintances who gave a false report to the authorities. So he sought refuge in this mental hospital. So this like artists has turned his back on creating art in society. And is like living in this mental hospital. So that's like the setup. I guess. And the big thrust of the book is the devil do in devil stuff to corrupt Russia, not corrupt as an adjective in that sense. So he is there to like, expose how corrupt in silly this whole system is after the dude barely owes dies. The devil and his friends move into barely department. They have like fabricated papers. Barely his roommate tries to like get them. Kicked out, or you know what is happening here and they literally teleport him to y'all too. To just get rid of him. Okay. Okay. Okay. They they get rid of what to do with this information. I didn't know either they get rid of another guy who is causing trouble for them by like plaint planting foreign currency on him. And then like having someone call the cops and then he's like taken away. There's a lot of disappearing of people which mostly it's the devils doing, but the devil is taking advantage of this like hyper paranoid like repressive repressive government society, and the devil is taking advantage of all of the incentives that individuals have to like claw their little way like into a better apartment or more whatever it might be. So let me like explain the devils retinue a little bit. I've talked about the big cat. His name is behemoth which is a reference to the monster. And also I think is like the Russian word for hippopotamus. He is described at one point as a black cat of uncanny size with a glass of vodka in one paw and a fork on which he had managed to spear a pickled mushroom in the other as kind of a goofy jerk. That is always like cracking jokes and causing trouble at one point. This is a good struck me funny. He is pouring himself a glass of water and everyone instead of screaming, they're watching this in horror, and one guy goes, that's class like the way that he is glass of water for himself. There's a guy who's always wearing a checkered suit and opponent is his name is great. What pinch nez? Yeah. What is that? I think it's like glasses that just hang on your nose. P. i. n. c. n. easy. Okay, I'm looking. Yeah. Okay. Yeah, they kinda perch on your nose yet. They pinch your nose. Paul snus like French. The think top image that comes up is just of teddy Roosevelt wearing these glasses. Popular in the nineteenth century. Sure. Okay. He is an ex always described as an ex choirmaster, which I think is a reference to him being a fallen member of the Djelic choir, and he is capable of creating allusions or get to that in a second. There's a dude named as Zillow. Who is named for the fallen angel Zeyzoun's or as his, oh, who I think is in one apocryphal book or one book of the bible or like a noncanonical book of the bible is described as being responsible for makeup like sin of makeup. Think about that for a second. And there's also a naked lady named Hella who's a suckiest. There's like a, there's just random naked ladies in this book and you just got to roll with it. I guess they're not really thought about very much had air as kinda Macram. But so as I said, the devil takes over Moscow. Starts punishing. These literary dudes, and I can see why the government would have gotten mad about this. Yeah. So the devils run like, what is this symbol for something like, what is the difference between the devil orchestrating this and like it just being citizens doing. It is a pariah like fuzzy line yet certainly reflects poorly on the government and certainly reflects poorly on like, oh, the we are the ones allowing these men to run a theatre and put on plays. And they're the ones who are like criminally corrupt and yada, yada, yada. So it culminates in the guy that they sent off to y'all to having like been hypnotized in securing a contract for the devil to perform at the theater as this black magic professor, which I is like the cat doing tricks while wool into stands there, and then caro- via comes out and starts doing some allusions where he invites a bunch of women up on stage and gives them a bunch of fancy clothes and everyone's, it reaches this fever pitch of materialism. That also seems really like bad for Russia, right? Then he summons money out of the sky and everyone like fights each other to get all the money, and they're riding, he rips the emcee of the theaters head off and ask the MC if he's gonna, keep putting on terrible shows. And with like with no head? No, his his head ripped off is like talking. Okay. And probably pretty hard to put on the show that way. And the audience is like, put his head back on freaking out. And so he does. And the guys like alive again. And while you're reading this, it's hard to know if this stuff is really happening. You know, these characters are like demons and the devil. But the ramifications are that then people leave the theater and they're all like naked. They're not wearing any clothes or they go to spend some money and all the people who get paid or complaining that the ruble's are actually like crumpled up like pieces of flyers and like not actual money. So maybe it was allusions who knows. So this, that's like the culmination of the devil interacting with this section of Russian society, making them look really bad, making them look, really greedy. Along the way we get at least one or two more jumps into the punches pilot track where the big scene is him deciding whether or not to pardon Jesus. So I don't know if you remember this. I certainly didn't. I don't really have a good sense of this tale. Outside of like in the biblical version is what? Okay, but like Jesus meets with pilot pilot, like your, what's your deal? You're causing a lot of trouble. And Jesus is like, hey, powers and allusion because God so like get your stuff in order because we're all going to the kingdom. You know, we, we don't need power where we're all going. What's what translation bible is that. That's the Craig Vipul. Okay. That's the Craig. Do you get it bible. And so they're, you know, they're going back and forth. They don't agree on the way the world is, but pilot seems to be enjoying time with Jesus and he's sentenced to death alongside three other like thieves. And there's this big public ceremony where one of them is going to be spared as just like part of the routine, right and pilot refuses, well, he does not stand up to his boss, Kaya fasts to spare Jesus. Instead, he spares one of the thieves and this is portrayed in the book as this like act of cowardice, where pilot is this like bureaucrat to tie it back to Soviet Russia, who is unwilling to rebuke the system, unwilling to push back against thority to do what he thinks might be the right thing. Right? So that gets at one of the famous quote from this book is cowardice, is the most terrible of vice. It is in this book attributed to Jesus while he's on the cross. Like you know, talking to the people who will typically cause his death and that is UC cowardice throughout the book. But that's like one of the pilots journey of like, did I do the right thing? No, I didn't. I'll be haunted by forever is how that is manifested. I don't know if I have other vices like the book says that cowardice is the is the root of all other vices writing. There's a vice that's worse than cowardice, Andrew. I mean mice pretty bad, right? Yes. Another one where people say it's lead while evil. Yeah, yeah. Those two like vaping is like vaping pretty low vaping, Stephanie a vice, but it's not. It's not even. It's not as bad as smoking. I don't think. No, I don't think it is arguably as far as we know, yes, so far, the data's still being analyzed on bad vaping is I suppose gambling's bad, but that goes back to like game, greed and whatnot is murder of ice. Emerged thing you shouldn't do. Well, what is the what is the vice, but a thing that you shouldn't do? It depends if you only murder someone once. I don't think it's a vice advice is bad habit. Right? But if you murder a lot of people, then it's definitely a vice. Yeah. Okay. Okay. So that's that's where that quote comes from in regards to this book back to the spooky stuff going back to the spooky stuff because it spooked Hct so spooked me man. The other, the third main threat of this book. As I said, it involves the master and his lover Margarita and we meet Margarita. She is in a love marriage to some dude. And one of the devils workers like approaches her. She was in a relationship with the master. He disappeared. She thinks he's dead. She saved some of his burned manuscript. And this devil man approaches her in quotes from this manuscript in a way that no one no one could unless he had supernatural powers. He invites her to join the devil at some sort of like spring ball, some annual ball, and she kind of Intuit's that maybe this will mean. Mean a chance to like meet my love again either, I guess in the afterlife or like get a favor from the devil. Like devil went down to Georgia style. So dude gives her some cream that she has to take all close off in rogue on her body, and then she becomes a witch. Like you do, right. You know which cream which cream of she bite at the Walgreen at the you can get the store brand version or the fancy name brand for hurt her hair Congo's crazy. Her eyebrows get all bushy like. Unlike made up or untrimmed, and she sort of looks younger by about ten years, and she's naked and a broom, like flies adder. And then she just starts flying around Russia naked on a broom. That's pretty spooky. It's pre spooky especially when her her maid. Natasha also uses some of the cream becomes a witch, puts it on Margaritas husband who then becomes a pig and then tasha starts flying around on the pig man rule the skies of Russia. The sounds weird. It's sounds like a weird one. And it's like sorta spooky because it's kinda horrifying to think if you were like a man who could talk, but now you were a pig who can also talk and you're being ridden bio a naked, witch woman, and you don't know if you're ever going to be a man again, but it's also like it's got a weird sense of humor. That pervades the book. All of this stuff feels absurd where in a way that you're supposed to be maybe chuckling at and then troubled by I mentioned Nikolai Gogol earlier, he has a short story that is called the knows where some Russian bureaucrats knows like jumps off his face and like takes on a life of its own. It feels of a piece with that also of a piece with Kafka in a way. So then this whole witch stuff. Leads Margarita to a naked but invisible flying through the skies of Russia goes to the apartment building where the critics who ruined the masters career live and like breaks all their windows and all this stuff. And then she goes in participates in the devils ball, which this is where the book gets its most like magic realist where she is like. Transported from place to place really easily in a in a in a magic sort of way. We're like she closes her eyes, and then all of a sudden she's in a forest and then all of a sudden she's in a bath house. And then all of a sudden all these tulips appear. It's kind of unclear why she agrees to just like all of a sudden, the devils Queen. I guess maybe you don't tell the devil? No, no, I guess not. I mean, if the devil came to you Andrew and said, be my Queen, would you say yes for like one night, be my Queen on on the night of my devil ball. I mean, if it was just for one night, you know, just just try it. Just give it a try, yellow. What's the worst thing that can happen? Well. Will you would think he makes her sit at the top of a whole bunch of stairs on the entry way to this party and all of the people from hell, like a parade of murderers and poisoners in whatever come out of a fireplace and like greet her, and she has to just sit there and greet them for like hours. And we see some people that we've met in other parts of the story. And she does this so that she can, you know, be ODA favor by the devil who does grant her like going back to her relationship with with the master. But I, I do wanna read like a little section that gets a sense of like. How transitions work in this book, especially when magic is involved. So in the party's winding down, the crowds of guests began to lose their shape. Tailcoat IRS women fell to dust decay. Invalid the room before Margaritas is simple. Supple Kroll, smell flowed over it. The columns fell apart. The fires went out, everything shrink. There were no more fountains, no camellias, no tulips. And there was simply this, the modest living room of the jewelers widow. And so it's like the devil could just like take you places. He can just make a room disappear. He can make a room appear. Lots of transitions in this book are dislike all of a sudden, whoops, you're somewhere else. Right? And that to me, feels of a piece with other magical realism that we've read as like it. What point though is a magical realism. And what point is it just magic. Yeah, magic it. That's true. That's certainly true. So the latter part of this book is like the devil dealing with the master and Margarita. He does like put them together. There's this line where he tells the master that manuscripts don't burn, which is another famous line from this book, which I guess is also a reference to Bulgakov being unable to turn this book like away from his life, and he puts them back together, but a a messenger from, yeah, from Jesus. From actual Jesus shows up and tells the actual Jesus or don't call him. Jesus for the book always calls him Yeshua, but he's definitely of an angel tells the devil that these two people, they don't get to go to heaven. They basically need to go to limbo. But before the devil takes them there, he literally takes them to meet punches pilot whose guest been a live on a mountain for two thousand years being sad about sending than Jesus to death. And you hear that part of the story. Oh, you really don't wear God. She's like, actually, you're gonna, you're gonna. Think about this for while you're gonna sit in a corner and thinking about what you did. He's like sitting on this balcony, staring at the moon with his giant dog, like feeling sad about himself and the master like tells him to be free, and then pilot walks into the moon and he's free like you, everyone knows that the moon is actually a door to the afterlife. That's how everyone knows. I forgot that part of the bible. Yeah, that's I guess the cowardice thing crops backup in the master, like turning his back on his art and not being willing to pursue it in spite of pressures from the state and whatnot. I don't know. Would you if the government told you Andrew that you couldn't podcast, would you podcast or if they'd hold you to do your podcast a certain way, would you do at different way. I can't imagine that the government would care enough to tell me what to do with my podcast, but I don't know. We could try some like deep web dark web secret book podcasting, what would be hard to like get the word out? Yeah, that is a crucial part of podcasting is spreading the word. Yeah, it's a really like while book that's sort of all over the place. I feel like I've conveyed the all over the place. You've definitely conveyed that. Yeah, but most. So why is this one of the most significant literary works of the twentieth century? Hope. Oy. Just like, what is a? I don't know what, what? What kind of stuff is it hailed for in particular because so far just sounds like a weird book where some people turn to witches and the devil is there sometimes. Yeah, the devil is there some time. So I think one reason it was probably hailed within Russia is the like critique of Soviet society in the thirties, and I read some essays about it. Also being like a reminder of like late eighties, Russia as well. There's a staleness to their society that the devil is there to point out to them which you know if you're Bulga cough, you're looking around and you're looking at corruption. You're looking at people being really petty over certain parts of the system and what if you dialed all of that up to eleven to the point where like people could actually be literally disappeared by maj. GIC and stuff. As consequence. The Margarita stuff is kind of interesting because it's this woman who is sort of stuck as a housewife and decides NAS, screw that I'm going to be a witch and work with the devil to get my man back. And that's kind of RAD. Like a naked lady flying through the sky is probably pretty racy for nineteen thirties, Russia in the first place, but also her like hobnobbing with zombies and working with evil cat that shoots people and set stuff on fire and then is helping her man like publish this sort of noncanonical version of Jesus in a society that's pretty anti religious sure seems important. And to top all of that off, the book is really be the all over the place of me talking about it, I think, is. A product of the fact that like it's which is tone pretty pretty loosely. It switches not necessarily like style like it doesn't dip in and out of different genres or or like structures or anything. But it does like to oscillate between this kind of absurdist high farce and like, no, this is like a real person facing a real situation and some actual horror in their life that they can't escape from. I don't know. That's the that's the fine line to walk. I think sometimes when you do stuff, that's kind of absurd. I can sometimes bounce off of it. I don't know if you feel the same way, like stuff that's like here. Okay. So in the devil's party that he throws, there's like at one point, the cat opens a bottle and the entire pool turns into cognac and everybody's drinking cognac and gets drunk, and there's. A jazz band. That's actually like a whole bunch of zoo animals and it's like, what is even happening and I in within it. I'm like, I don't know if I'm into this because it feels like a little bit much. Yeah. Sometimes on the weirdness just seems like weirdness verse own sake. But yes, yes. It's. It's good to have the context for what the like the environment. The book was produced in in in this case, I think because the contrast between the absurdity of the situation and also like the very real and huge nece awfulness of what he's actually writing about is that's the point, right? Yeah. And the stuff I've kind of underplayed I think the pilot, the punches pilot narrative. I think there's a lot there that was probably not the state's Cup of tea in terms of, as I said, like a pilot as bureaucrat, but also like you'll maybe maybe what if there's some truth to this story, even if it's not a like historically accurate story. Like, let's let's spend Russian literary time delving in. Into Jesus does not seem like thing. Stalin would truck with sure. So having a state official feel guilt over getting rid of Jesus and then playing a part in the death of Judas. And yet Jesus, forgiving, both of them seems pretty seems a little radical and maybe a little spooky maybe a little spooky. If you were Joseph's dull, spook, Joseph Stalin capitalism. The free market. I'm spooked could you design a haunted house? That's just the free market. Thank you. Could you could have sort of a little roller coaster that like emulated the highs and lows of the market? And you could have a little room where you know how in in like haunted house ride, there'll be skeletons at like, pop out at you and they play noise and this one would just be a, like a businessman with a Monaco holding money bags, and it would make a really loud Jing sound and yeah, or like a casino or sure. Can Alantic city casino or I guess, I think going into a modern grocery store would be horrible. He'd hate his because he'd be like. The what, half the free market rot. I came find where the regular Oreos are anymore among all the weird Oreos. Same for the Pringles. There was a, I forget if it was one of the grocery stores in Ohio or in Jersey City that we will go to. I think it might have been Ohio, but they had every weird kind of dole orange juice, like strawberry banana and whatever, whatever, but they didn't have orange juice. They just orange juice. They only had the weird kinds. I couldn't by plane Tyson chicken fingers the other day because all the whole section was Honey barbecue and bourbon something soars chicken party or whatever. Like you know, what was in that section. I couldn't just get the normal thing. 'cause capitalism. Yeah. So that would be kind of a capitalist Hong house experiences. Just make him walk up and down the aisles at the acme. Got the market sustained. So many choices. Could the market do this. Do the popular Oreo subsidize the failure. Oreos. The invisible hand of the free market only dunks double stuff. Oreos. And then I just want to give shadow as close to a couple turns of phrase in the Margaritas section that I think are pretty good and just kind of point out. Like I think some of the flights of fancy are why people really meant like remember this book and it really stands out like the stuff of Margarita flying around and the hog man and the and the cool cat. But there's also just little nuggets of fun little language. So one is talking about the love between the master in the Margherita says the master talking about it. He says, love leaped out in front of us, like a murderer in an alley, leaping out of nowhere and struck us both at once as lightning strikes as a Finnish knife strikes. She by the way insisted afterwards that it wasn't so that we had, of course loved each other for a long, long time without even knowing each other, which I think is I don't know what a Finnish knife is, but I get the point like a Finnish, like from. Finland? Yeah. Okay. Or who, what if it was like a Finnish knife? Sounds like if it was just a word finish, that sounds like a weapon from like a video game, the Finnish knife finish knife, and the other one is after bad translation for the final sword that you get. The other one is when Margarita turns into a witch, she leaves a note like you do for her husband that says, forgive me and forget me as soon as possible. I am leaving you forever, do not look for me. It is useless. I have become a witch from the grief and calamities that have struck me. It's time for me to go. Farewell. Which supreme good mic drop. Okay. I too have become a witch from the grief and calamities that have struck me same to say. Yeah. I think the imagery of the book is probably a big reason why people remember it and have a lot of fun with it. But I think there's a lot to chew on with the enemy of the state stuff and the interplay between art state and yell. The devils in there. And the devils here by an people is Queen making people's Queen term people, vampires term people a hog people spokes wild. Cool. Well, I'm. I could. I could. I wanted to be a little more spook than I am just a little bit more. I not scared by the book also. Sure. I think we could read this anytime and not Justin spook Tober. Yes, that's possibly true. There's some spooky elements, and it also helps to get some more Russian into our cannon like overdue cannon. So that's also true. That's.

The femme fatale

"Retro pod is sponsored by Tito's vodka drink responsibly. He history lovers. I'm Mike Rosen walled with retro pod a show about the past rediscovered Mata Hari for the past one hundred years she has been revered as the ultimate FEM Fidel the seductive glamorous exotic dancer who allegedly spied for the Germans during World War One she was even executed glamorously according to legend her final was to blow a kiss to her firings. Haris influence on pop culture was huge and fuelled by Greta Garbo's portrayal of her in one thousand nine thirty one film that film was repeatedly censored for its risk aceites. You'll come first before these four M yes. It so you can see where Mata Hari gets her reputation. In Reality Though Hari had a much less glamorous life a trove of documents from her trial and her personal letters that were recently found paint a new picture of the infamous by not the Mata Hari of Legend Mata Hari who is a mother who left an abusive marriage and a scapegoat for war-torn France looking to distract from heavy casualties the real life Mata Hari was born Margarita Gear Trudeau Zella to a prosperous family by the time she was fifteen her father had lost his fortune and left her mother died. She who sent away to live with relatives at Eighteen Margarita met in soon married Rudolph John Macleod in officer in the East indies army who was almost twice her age. The marriage was troubled at best in abusive at. I the couple also lost his son. In nearly lost daughter after both were widely rumored to have been poisoned by a nanny there. It's unclear whether that story is true. Margarita and McLeod eventually returned to Holland Linden separated but McLeod refused to pay alimony to help her raise their daughter. Margarita ultimately went to Paris and left her daughter with her ex husband choosing to go to France and build a career. It was in Paris that that she started dancing enacting took on the name that made her famous Mata Hari. Perhaps the most surprising part of Mata Hari is true. Story is the fact that she read the most famous German spies never actually gave much useful information to the Germans what made her a target for France was her lifestyle. Mata Hari became a successful courtesan. She could speak multiple. Language so she was able to seduce high ranking government officials from different countries France was worried that her relationships with those empower made her reliability. It also didn't help that she was known for spending time with not only French officers but German officers to dancing with them and more so Mata Hari was jailed tried and ultimately executed Oh and the legend about her blowing a kiss to executioners. That's probably not true either. She did however go to her execution wearing black stockings high heels in adult cloak lined at the bottom with for when she was given a white cloth off to us as a blindfold Mata Hari said quote Mustang that she died looking her firing squad steadfastly in the is.

Elevating Landscapes

"I think our city is really on the verge of being completely adapted to living with an on water. I don't think it's going to be a horrible thing but the city of Miami and the county are not the theory from the Harvard Graduate School of design. This is future the American city conversations. On how how we live where we live on Charles Waldheim Linda Spear and Margarita Blanco landscape escape architects whose work focused on the building of ecologically performance of public spaces. Laurindo and Margarita. Join us that. He discussed their work in elevating landscape. In and Miami Laurindo Margarita. Welcome thank you. So you're both architects and you're both architect. Sue made a decision early on to be committed. Hated doing work. In the public realm and appoint mid-career you might say decided to to retool to ratify landscape architects. Tell me about that. Tell me about at that choice and the decision to train as a landscape architect when you had already established careers as architects working in the public realm of some prominence. I mean for me I it just felt it was. There was something unconscionable about the way we were going about architecture ignoring the site entirely and even thinking to ourselves is not even necessary to see see the site at times and so at some point maybe more than fifteen years ago. I said it's just not the right way of doing this. And I thought you know to do it right. You'd have to be a landscape architect as well and because we had worked in China for forty years we were one of the first firms over there and we had to familiarize ourselves with funkaway and I thought you know. They have the right idea even though they're not calling it landscape architecture effectively. It's what it is and what you really should be doing doing an so cousin of mine is the functionally neck romance or Gio Answer. WHATEVER THEY CA- and I thought well I could do that or I could could just be landscape architect so then I got kind of excited and interested in doing it and it also seems really a feminine in a way pursuit because you think mother earth and and you know being involved in landscape seems the right thing to do for women in a way? I had this Glib idea that since I had already been an architect it was like super super easy to be a landscape architect. Oh I had to do is call de PBR. Whatever they call themselves department of Business and professional regulation and just announced that okay? Could you kindly give me a license and I tried that. It did not work at all zero so you cannot get a license that way at all and they said none. Oh no you have to go go back to school. We're not going to accept anything. No experience no nothing. I couldn't I be kind of grandfather and grandmother then no not possible so there wasn't really a choice. 'cause I don't think just digging around with drawing and saying Oh this is the landscape architecture really that is not at all. You need to go through the process so when I realized that after trying the shortcut route Eh Said No. We just had to rigorously goes through this thing and so somehow Margarita was in town and we both decided to go back to school together because we just had the same urge and so he cited to go to. Fau It's to your credit to make that commitment and We'll we'll return to that but I want to go back a little bit to the kind of the origin origin story. You were you know at the at the foundation of architectonic producing extraordinary work over the course of decades at a moment in time really that I also associate with the with the growth of Miami. I I remember you know myself just my experience as a student in college in the mid nineteen eighties. Seeing the Atlanta's building published and thinking of revelation. This is that one one could actually imagine that as a project and seeing the cultural impact that that one project had so I wanted I wanted to go back and ask you a little bit about that origin. So you studied architecture you. You were a yearly where I steady academic Columbia and he went to Undergrad at Brown and then I did did a stint of urban planning mit but Through all of that. I think when we first came to Miami I think we were kind of form makers this more than anything and we got connected with Andreessen lives because undress and visit Bernardo had been not in the exact same classes but around each other's classes At Princeton Undergrad and so we kind of all reconnected. Here and so the way you were the four of us and then we'd brought in Irvine Romney because he had the license at the time mm-hmm and so is five and so it was really three people from Yale me from Columbia which is an and Bernardo from Harvard. And I think we felt L.. Like pioneers in the desert. 'cause we looked around this and all the other architects. We're really good like Al Parker Charles. Poly they were Morris Lapidus. They were good. They were just not thinking the way we were there was really no when our age. Who was really doing what we were doing? How is it that you all came to choose? Miami as a venue to strike upon Burnett a moment here by default casillas offered a job at. Um and he was an in Peru at that. Time was under kind of dictatorship. It was really impossible to live there and Andreessen Liz. I think came here by default because they were just kind of floating and raises. Nearest foothold was Miami. Otherwise it'd be Spain where he grew up and his grandmother lived here and his his parents were moving here from Spain so his family was centering. In Miami He he being accused exile. Liz just followed Andreas. She was from Philadelphia and her father was an architect actually. Liz speaks Polish fluently. She's Polish jokes so she was bringing a whole other cultural element the old world Europe and then my family had been here since I guess my grandfather came here in Nineteen nineteen or nineteen twenty as the first doctor in Hollywood and so I don't know why these people people want to tell him here. I was really godforsaken. I can't even imagine mother my mother growing up here in the things she do to go to school drive for ever and you know. It's like a pioneer place so this early days in practice the four the five of you this would have been in the mid late seventies. I mean certainly. There was a very strong kind of modernist tradition in south Florida. Florida generally The kind of Rudolph Sarasota School. The Miami modern the Lapidus material and I'm struck on the one hand by how different you know your practice was immediately in how legible it was. You know not just for a local audience but for a national audience right. I mean it was in the opening credits to Miami vice and it was everywhere on every magazine cover and as a you know a student of architecture in Florida at that time it was unmistakable. So you work together as before five for a relatively short period of the I really short and then they spun off with seaside in Robert Davis and we just this kept going. With finishing the Atlanta's the palace and the imperial with three buildings on brickell and then from there and kind of moving moment moment in time when the idea of making that part of brickell of a kind of city was quite radical. No yeah because there are people living in house there at the time and even like mayor for a had his this house. They're still at the time so Margarita. Let let's talk a little bit about your origin story. So you say your conduct. Sure you've got your license and you also had a notable career doing quite prominent network. I don't think that note of old but here I am Well I studied architecture in Cornell actually with Laurindo Sister Allison Eid after that I went to Study Economics in London so when I finished that I just stayed in London working for the Colombian Embassy for the trade and Coffee Federation and after like eight years in London I decided to go back to Columbia and with the Coffee Federation said up. A architectural studio with Ricardo will feel this Spanish architect architect and created the year that Tura Day last America which is his studio but for the Americas to do big urban low cost housing projects. And I guess I can say that I grew up. You know in the country in a way in the countryside so so I had a special connection to nature all my life and I always loved it and I didn't discover that there was a thing called landscape architecture until you know I lived in London actually and I was upset because having gone to cornell you know I would have thought that the school of architecture actor would be connected to the school of landscape architecture. But they're not you didn't even know they existed. The landscape architects didn't know we exist. That we didn't they existed. Things have changed now. Then it was a mystery so then. This situation in Colombia changed radically at at the end of the nineties tire was in the capital word was in bullet. Dont`a yeah we did five huge urban design projects like thirty thousand housing units with amazing urban spaces. That were very Nova tive for the mentality untalented of social housing in Latin America. But the situation got out of hand and Bofill said that he didn't want to go back to Colombia. Because they were gonNA GONNA shoot him more kidnap him or something was going to happen and we had to dissolve the dire so then my husband like Laurindo said worked in the music business. He had a recording studio in Bogota. He was offered some consulting job in Miami and he said all you WanNa come with me and I said okay fine so we came and eventually stayed and I went to school with Lorenza and here we are last story. I guess for me. The symmetry here is committed as an architect but you also had a sense that something was absent. Something was missing. This was a little bit of my experience in school was I was trained. Essentially did not talk to the landscape architects both at the undergraduate level in Gainesville Florida and in Graduate Agit School In Philadelphia that they were another species altogether and I think that our generational experience might be similar in that sense of a kind of opposition in between design culture or kind of environmental commitment. No when that's something I sense in both of your backstories as you're not thinking just two buildings as buildings per se cultural the objects or even just as instruments of commerce but they were addressing societal and urbanistic needs and so in that sense. I'm interested to understand more about how. Oh you identified the professional turn. So you encounter landscape architecture in London You have a sense from your cultural background your experience in Latin America of its potential as a the medium. And you have some sense from what you said about the limitations of architecture as an instrument. Let's say and yet like Linda. You made this astonishing commitment commitment again at the at the middle of a flourishing career to go into a new field new set of tools a new license That must have been a choice that you thought about a long time. Well No. I don't think I thought about it. I just sort of dipped into it. You know I think it sort of was a natural thing that happened after after going through all the public housing and Columbia. I think you know the transformation there in those specific projects was really astonishing. How you know these tiny little rooms because that's what they used to build? As public housing or social housing had no urban space or no public space no parks no green areas nothing and then all of a sudden they are in the midst of all this Green Gene Greenery. So that to me. Was You know something that I thought. Just needed to pursue or implement in a grander or scale right. I didn't know how it was going to happen after that I had no idea was GONNA end up in Miami. Had No idea that I was going to go to school. Would Lorraine dot nothing. I'm struck by the first of all the diversity of the conversation right. So we've we've we don't have like seven schools of architecture and landscape architecture in the next week that six six national origins. We've got different like that. Diversity I mean it it does speak to my experience of Miami as being a place that is on the one hand global city. A you could say but it's also maybe more specifically a place where a lot of cultures mix so you made these choices in the early two thousands to go back to school. That's yeah it was two thousand and three more than four thousand four. We went back to school and so as you went back to school as you both went on this parallel path was was it clear that you would immediately launched this new firm. or how does the transition from studying wanting to seek the license wanting to be serious about it and then the idea of forming this practice what how does how does that happen okay. Laurindo decided to create a landscape firm independent from architectonic. Okay okay it was her decision and then one day we went to take a course to take our licensing exam in Orlando and remember weekend we went there and it was like three quarters right and one of the persons teaching. The course was this elderly gentleman landscape architect architect. Who was at the time seventy years old? Whose name is George Fog? And he was an expert in park design. He had written mm several books on parks for the park and recreation entity of the of the nation. So George was there and we sort of became friends. France was George then. Lorenzo decided to create this new firm and asked me if I would be interested in. You know joining her to do it and so I said yes. I'd love to and then we had to find somebody that was licensed because it was the same case as architectonic tectonic. Both of us. We hadn't finished school. We still had one more year and so we said Oh Georgia's perfect one. We went on. We spoke to George and George became like our mentor and the three of US started together. Fantastic so you're committed to forming practice the idea of doing it separate from MHM but somehow affiliated with architect Tonka architectonic at this point in. Oh four or five is quite prominent internationally offices in a lot of places. He's doing quite a lot of work. Certain kind and so the idea to situate that within as a kind of boutique or salon firm within the bigger firm. How how does that? Ed emerge we sort of to get some of their drafts in there. You know like bike riders too so we took the name although we always had a little bit of misgiving about that. We're kind of we don't want to be in their shadow. And I felt that it was really easy to get sidelined or even to get in the situation -tuation where they architectonic. It was just sending US sketches to draft them up because they feel like they're better landscape architects than we are anyway all of them every single one of these guys and so it was a tricky little tight roping situation to try to stay independent and to clarify what we do. Luckily the city city of Miami and actually Miami Dade County required even at the time landscape architecture drawings be submitted for any project so that we were commodity that was like readily available. They needed us very badly. And there was some logic to it. We could stay ground just because it was a required element of all building permits thankfully awfully prior to that. I'm not so certain it had been actually required so as you started and you took on all this work. What kind of work were you doing in the first years I mean? What kind of projects were you engaged in? I would say mixed use and residential but then we struck lock. Because we were commissioned by Hertzog DOC and demure iron to do the art museum in Miami and Thou was basically the first project that was not with architectonic. So you know it was really. I think a turning point in our practice and we decided that we wanted to continue to pursue client's on a portfolio from other architects and not just architectonic. We've managed to do that. I think that today forty maybe be thirty five percent of the practice for architects other firms other architectural firms. That have you know hired us at some point and always come back you know and I think I'd say twenty percent of our practice so we're up to sixty is developers who come back to us without even their architect. The developer just says we y you so don't worry about the architect full just Get this thing so I'd say only thirty to forty percent of our which is now Donovan. Yeah interesting I mean you. You mentioned a pen. The Perez Art Museum Here which is it's an extraordinary cultural institution first of all say that second second of all its architectural aspirations of time when Miami was opening itself too much wider horizon natural talent but both in public work but also in commercial commercial and mixed use. Were the idea that ability and prominent building on that site hurt second would be clad or sheathed almost entirely in your work. It's quite a project to launch written Norman and this was only after a couple of years in practice that was exactly three years or two and a half years into practice so this would have been oh seven awaits awaits school and it was a competition really. I mean you know. We had to compete with other landscape architects. I don't remember who no I just remember ember that we spend a lot of time doing our presentation for them. You know thinking what we wanted to say and show on how we would actually may come alive their vision for the building and in the end they selected us and you know we loved doing the project. It was a fantastic past experience. You know we learned a lot from it as well because a lot of these things that we implemented in that project were done for the first time the hanging columns had never been done before the gravel parking Surface had never been done before. So there's the issues that have come through the years with all these but we're working with them to resolve them. We're working with Herzog and De Museum to find better ways of doing it but we also had a hurricane. Two years ago on everything worked perfectly as designed the building and you know the water went right through it percolated through the gravel which was the whole point of doing the garage because the whole building is completely Lee Let's porous right so what we didn't want was water gets to the garage and then where does the water go right. So that's why we you propose doing this at the time. The Code in Miami didn't allow it so you know we had to fight for it undid all sorts of mock-ups the architects supported us and so did the client and then the city you know and that's why it was done and I think that that's why I it turned out to be such a great building in the end. It's an extraordinary piece of work going for people that haven't seen it. They should do among the things that I'm struck by First and foremost most you mentioned the idea of the permeable under story right. So the idea that the building that's fronting directly onto Biscayne Bay credible once in a lifetime urban site looking across this incredible ecosystem the art lifted above but underneath everything absorbing water and you can see this in every decision about the surface of the ground downplaying the design of all the materials and the idea that that it works. You know another notable feature you mention these hanging gardens you know the kind of visual aspect of this Building is among other things especially on its public facing facade onto the bays incredible hanging columns of plant material that again to to. Have you know architects of of that caliber doing a work of that type and not only in the infrastructure accommodating sea level rise storm of it but also in the image of the building so so after the success of Pam you continue it done quite a lot of other work working directly with Development Community working directly with architects. And in that sense I think Arctic Hannukah Kajiado even in its first ten or fifteen years of of existence has really mirrored the development in landscape architecture. More broadly I think in that same two decades it's landscape architects have aspired. Many of them to move from being subcontracted to architects right toward being their own prime contractors actors in a way and sort of Mo- moving up the food chain in terms of the solicitation of public work and this kinds of things but in working directly with the Development Community have if you had better success than working with thinking about that and muggy tonight just recently had a conversation about return on investment or developers because two UN capitalized aspect of their project. They don't notice and they're only now. Starting to notice is the landscape because that makes all the difference in their projects for example. Just one around here brickell city centre without the landscape. If I don't know if you've looked at it or gone up there it would just be a very start concrete huge huge project but the landscape really makes it a desirable place to go I think. And as developers start to realize that landscape gives gives them return on investment that they hadn't even heretofore thought about or even considered they're more interested in contracting with us and engaging with us this is you say directly and you know the architecture is one thing but landscape architecture is really important for them. At this point I have this recollection at. I think it happened. It might have been a dream being at brickell sort of halfway up a building near a pool with an olive grove. It was I think it was probably silver button. Woods oh Maybe not a tree guy very similar to three. Yes correct. Yeah all our all our palate for brickell city centre all native. You know we have almost. I think five or almost six acres of green roofs. You know and that was is also I have to say a big leap that we took in our practice when we did brickell city centre because it's such a huge project. It was the the biggest in the United States at the time in the midst of a recession and the only green roof we had done at the time was at fau which was the largest green roof in Florida. Nine Thousand Square feet and it was also extremely hard because the code didn't allow it at the time gay believe it or not and that's two thousand six or seven you know they thought it was gonna fly away in a hurricane. There were all these issues about the hurricane. Gene Code in the end it turned out well and we changed. You know we we did the green roof and you know. It hasn't flown away any hurricane. CAIN and they're doing pretty well on the brought back a lot of birds and founder and BS and you know it's not only about the thermal the last weeks of it but also the you know environmental aspects. I mean it does speak to landscapes role in curing those kinds of environments which is among the things that's on offer in this part of the world. It's not just that it's not just a condominium unit or it's not just an address or a parking garage it's also the set of environments armaments. You're being invited into the people aspired to and murder. You mentioned the performance of measures right. So that's another thing again that your practice I know has been quite focused on is how how do we evaluate the performance of these places. How much groundwater how much seawater how much storm event? How many species You you know like has your firm Bidden finding ways to enumerate into evaluate that material for your for your collaborators. I mean we've started doing that. What we revisit? Our projects often to see how they're doing. We find that I think are most difficult. Challenge is really the condominiums because once they're turned over to the CONDO associations. It's a group of people that decide what happens in those amenities right so most of them want flowers you know so. They don't want native planting so they rip off our landscape to replace replace it for invasive plants. And so it's a lot what Laurindo says it's educating people you know and I think it's GonNa take take a while but you know the last fifteen years I think there's been a big change in mentality with the architects. At least and you know the quantifying that that you're asking about in the book for some reason we've been asked to quantify our results so that some of these book people can get a better grasp of of what we're doing and so at the beginning I was. I'm not quantifying type of person who you know. It's interesting because making the tables and figuring it out is enlightening joining for us and so we now see that. There's a big benefit in doing that and the book. Maybe we'll be a little tiny Nanno step forward in in in a quantifying landscape so say more about the book. What's the book is called the elevated landscape and it's called the elevated landscape for two reasons and won because our practice has really I wouldn't say specialized but a lot of what we have done? Our elevated landscape landscapes tapes above the ground guide on deck so that really tortoise a lot in terms of the integration of landscape and architecture sure and thou with something that Lorena was always interested in and you know cheap pioneered that with the ballet building the parking garage in Washington Avenue and so thou was vertical elevated landscape. But you know we sort of fell into this type of landscapes that almost every single landscape that we have done throughout ears is elevated trying to elevate the conversation in writing about landscape to get us. You know the equal footing with the architects too so the elevated landscape the publication is going to feature Mo- mostly work from Miami mostly worked from only work from Miami interesting. Because it's for the Miami National. We took that decision at the beginning. We were GONNA show you know other products abroad but we decided that we would focus just on Miami. 'cause we didn't want the book to be this thing that it could be like a portfolio online of project after project. That's what we did not want so we WANNA really laser focused book with a little bit of a message with a little bit of inspiration. which was a jumping off point? I'm for others to see and figure out an keep going forward and so we kept it kind of a slim book so yeah works. Works on a couple of different levels. I I I want to ask you about. Parking garages particular. If you'll indulge me on the one hand you've been working to think about the parking garage as more of a vertical surface than just sta a hollow. Shell you've been interested. Certainly in in Pam you've been interested to think about the barrages as not just a kind of container but as a central infrastructure for saving the art from the storm by sacrificing the parking level. But I think that even before that when Laurindo designed the La La it was already green infrastructure. Even though people didn't see it like that the the green facade is a filter to absorb orb all the carbon from the cars and you know take it out in clean oxygen and so I think that that concept of the green the infrastructure has been carried out through our practice since we started so thank you for that migrated. That's clearly articulate what I was trying to get at which his Miami generally has an interesting in the garage. I can identify. Maybe a half dozen that I think architectonic Certainly interesting and worthy of study just at the level of architecture the without going too deep but in your practice city of twinning autumn ability carbon around the edges with with the green services of landscape. That's unique no I. Yeah I know very few practices that are engaged in that combination of things. And you might say well. A part of that is the culture or the context here the climate. Yes but there are a lot of landscape architects working here and I don't see many of them that are engaged in that same set of conversations between a adaptation practices is green infrastructure and the performance of parking garage. No I agree totally with you Charles because I mean most of our competitors don't Designed with that in mind they have unique aspects of their practice as well but very few look at green infrastructure. You know I mean the farthest they goal is native planting. Maybe an I always personally I mean this is just me and this is very controversial. I find native finding a very slippery slope Ano- because I didn't even know where you. Where do you pick native date and things are really changing Mike Right now in my own yard which is tiny like a postage stamp? I have a breadfruit tree growing which Dr Rangan from the National Tropical Botanical Garden says as they shouldn't grow in Miami are they couldn't grow in Miami because Haiti was the farthest north. They could ever grow and she gave me when it is going perfectly. Well so I find the the question question of native of a fascinating topic. First of all the the idea that there's an appropriate cultural response to a certain region in architecture has largely been debunked thankfully over the course of the last century or sexual thought and and yet in landscape thought and in the garden arts still is pervasive this idea but as climate change and as the climate zones move north and as as species begin to migrate of. Course that's up for grabs. I mean the other thing is interesting to me. Is the origin of Miami Beach in itself as a kind of plantation. As a kind of you know the growing of plant crops as a part of the origin of of the site itself Miami Beach is quite a lot of fascinating material. Not there and I think landscape architects were struggling with that as you are in your practice dealing with that on on a regular basis so over the past two decades of the past fifteen years as you've built architectonic Kajiado you built an extraordinary built work but landscapes here in a city that's maturing so in addition to being the local landscape architects. Doing the good work. You're also global. You also work elsewhere. So where else are you doing work just now in Panama in the city of Panama. We're doing in the United States. We have several well. That's not abroad. It's here but we have in San Francisco in Nashville Tennessee in New York and then abroad our products abroad. Right now. Lima Lima. We have one. Yeah I'd one point. Most of our projects were abroad. I now most of our projects are in Miami. So it's sort of fluctuates. I think so and I want to talk more with you about about Miami so oh you know. It has a series of challenges that many American cities share but somehow in extremity somehow in large relief. We know that it's very expensive to live here. We know that a lot of people have a very hard time. Either immigrating here. Those that do arrive have a very hard time. Many of them affording pay for housing when you combine the the cost of housing with the Times of and cost of commuting miami-dade Metro moves to one of the first or second worst conditions in North America Africa. Even though the housing costs here may be lower than in my hometown in Cambridge Messier were in the bay area or in New York. If you add commuting time to housing affordability ability. It's very difficult for the working class. And at the same moment the the wealth of the city the boom of the city both the public institutions. But also certainly the condominium development seemed to be addressing very different population and so. I wonder if you've thought about that. I mean clearly practices dealing with a range of those issues from Kgo streetscape and Winwood community driven city client based work to also working in the districts that are building amenity and destination environments but from from your experiences landscape architects. You have thoughts about that. So how does Miami deal with those challenges in your experience. One thing I always find the immigrant. Population is really essential to Miami. Amy and so everything that's happening right now. vis-a-vis that situation is anathema to our city. Really I don't know how can go on. But one thing that's interesting to me is a a lot of these amenity driven condos that are inaccessible to the so-called immigrant. Population are actually financed by the immigrant population. And also they're great incentives here that if you visit threshold of a half million dollars I at which point you can get a green card if you have that type type of investment so that many investors want to do investment here in Miami for that Green Card and so that not only is there. Nimick population is finding it hard to get housing but there's an immigrant population that's financing the Empire City for the incentive of being able to stay here anyway and so I don't know how to articulate articulated but it's very ill seems like those condos don't You know relate to anything but they very much relate to the immigrant but I think that this bloom of super high end condominiums is probably going to last very long because there there is a sort of movement of building you know lower type you know more rentals apartments than condos. Oh so we have several affordable housing projects that we're working on not in downtown Miami. But you know not far. Either I think the the biggest challenge that Miami has now is mobility and if they would resolve that issue than a lot of the problems would disappear because they're enough built low income housing around Miami there is you know is just far. Yeah and the problem is that there's no public transportation in in theory. There is but in practice there. Isn't you know so you know. No the the the highways every time they're more congested. Everybody needs a car. Everybody needs a parking garage to park the car. I mean it's it's really a problem. Do you think in your experience in the city that we could be optimistic about a generational change with people moving to the city and changing and changing in their mobility habits. Where we're based in coconut grove? Different stratification of let's say income is very like everybody's living really close to each other and there are several free transportation elements that pick up from the one line thing that we train got and when is called the Freebie which I'm sure are even countered and when is the trolley both free and people use those to get to work and everything else and they're just really kind of easy to use Musa's especially the Freebie if you have a phone and so I think there's going to be a whole other network of transportation probably free. That's going to beast springing up because it's really serviceable is a range of experiments going on in American cities just now about that last mile and among them the trolleys and the free free connectors. Are I think interesting. So so we'd be remiss Without really talking about sea-level rise in storm event among the reasons to be here in Miami is it's among the US cities that's in the most extreme vulnerable condition. We know that's limestone geology. Mitigates against a lot of the clay and river based solutions. We've seen in the Netherlands or in other parts of North America. Miami beach has so-called nuisance flooding on a regular basis. The city's itself adapting to by elevating streets and and installing backflow preventers pumps and a range of other infrastructure improvements as landscape architects working in the public realm. Here for some time I. How do you think about your adaptation reputation? The adaptation of the city of Miami both in your own work but also more broadly as the city adapts to living with water and with storm event moral I mean we have the perfect example instills Phil and. I'm not sure the city Miami's is just not prepared to allow any building on the water but that is really very a very serviceable and very right. But we've always done also to allow housing as in Holland on houseboats would be really wise in them. They're not quite there yet. Although there lots of live aboard 's from where I live you can see and where we are in cut the grove. The Bay is full of live aboard people just living on their boats and they go up and down tight apple and they row into work. I think I said he is really on the verge of being completely adapted to living with an on water. And I think it's GonNa be a horrible thing but the city of Miami and the county are not quite there yet so clearly. There's a lot of work. Both for the designing classes. Architects landscape escape architects but also for the political leadership. I mean if you look at Biscayne Bay and both edges. Both the kind of island there are many many projects that really point toward a progressive and adaptable future. At the same moment it strikes me that there are many contexts where as new development imagines a new level of the city of floor or to above many of these projects have already built into their pro. Forma the expectation of either you know getting into and out of their development before the big storm hits or even building in a new level for the public brummel altogether. But I think your practice. The things is providing leadership through the built work. You're showing examples of how to how to manage hold storm water on site how to build resilient and sponge based aced kind of site plans and and how to do it not waiting for some catastrophic event in the future and not waiting for the city itself to fund these things but working within the The economy that the city enjoys today in that regard are are the projects you have right now in the office that you think of as interesting pointing away forward toward an adaptation of the city that you think other might WanNa want to benefit from learned from probably the park in Miami Beach K.. Were doing a park at the entrance of Miami Beach while we call call it five hundred Alton because it's in the cross you know. Road of Alton and fifth and the whole park has been designed signed for stormwater management and connections connections. You know both north South and east West so it's been designed and you know with the aid of the community with the city of Miami beach and also with the enthusiasm that we put in our practice to deal with all these issues especially storm water management which is critical in Miami beach particular. The community was very very strong. And and they they they created the whole program completely. Yeah it's interesting because originally decide which is three blocks was was coded for up to. I think a height of seven floors so there was a whole project designed for that site full density seven seven floors no urban space. You know just packed and at one point. I don't know how that happened. The developer came to Architectonic Bernardo. Actually suggested that what they should do was a tower and leave the rest of the land as a park for the community okay so it was very bold proposal it took a lot of work with the city and then with the community but when the community saw what they could get in return everybody jumped on the ship a now when they look back they say well. We can't even imagine what this could have been instead head of the park that we're GonNa have now. Margarita Blanco lowering the spear. Thanks very much.

I'm pretty pretty miserable usually so it's nice to feel good this morning. Keeping the training. Yes I am I'm. Running cycling through a bit of beach weights that we used to call them. Men Are you an endorphin junkie? A. Yes I must be because I do feel much better for. The I just took off four days from training because I had problems with my stomach. And I felt miserable in those days I mean the stomach problems subsided after about a day had three days where I was just resting. Just making sure everything was in order before I went back out again. Felt absolutely. Horrible. I! Need to. Be. TRAINING TO BE HAPPY Like, I I've gone through phases all the way through life really of getting fed and getting out and get him fit and those fat stages. It's hard to get out of. smug managed to do it this year. For me when I was just lifting weights, the weight used just creep up. Slowly, over a year, you know be throughout the summer you'd be lean, and then in the winter months than it would just slowly creep up and it was horrible. It's very hard to keep it off the story in the new for those free you. Exactly because we are living in the forest and stuff like that nowadays. Everything's too easy and accessible as sorry. The good old Hanta gathered as we should be out hunting for food every day Adeleke, plus fit for sure. I don't live in those days that they.

I, was walking the dog and this guy was wearing those tee wreck suits where the legs it face legs dangle down like he's Kinda sat on a dinosaur. Walk in this. To. Randomly randomly super randomly. That's fantastic. You obviously take the double take just neither. Wasn't. Town, it was properly you know just. Random straight. Okay Day. So I thought he was drunk. Just, must about a new new delivery from Amazon and just thought try it on Our. Things generally cheaper in Wales usually. Really. What why? Because we since they closed the minds in the nineteen seventy S. Now is just the yeah. Things are cheaper usually like my local town if I went down to Jen tone. And I went on doubt I would probably spend pro almost half on the drinks. So you spend about five pound. Two. Hundred fifty. And if I went to my local village of the rugby club is still to something a pine. Okay. Does make a difference. Too. Yeah, I love how we always quantify the price of living and so on by the price of a pint. PINT for awhile. I asked the odd. Todd whiskey to watching. TV The end of the day. I I'm the same month. You know the last time I had a beer. No. Actually. I'm not going to say because I'm sick as saying this. India. Right that's being I'm. Not Saying. I think every single podcast we've had about four hits on the word India. Right. Yeah. No I was longtime ago since I had a beer. Can share. It is. And here in Switzerland they don't drink pints either they drink. cavs. I think actually is better because it keeps. It stays cooler It doesn't stay cooler your insurance you. In the Moncton so it's going to stay. Cool. Isn't that we're not all in the mountains playing are What are they called? What is what is Heidi play? Born, the L. Porn you lost me now. You know.

But I was massively let on if there wasn't a singer at the party because I then had to, you know improvised and and B. Singer and guitarist and I'm out the best singer unfortunately, and it always used to pay me. You'd be around the campfire everybody sing in combat my Lord or new praising you again, this guy's a legend. All the chicks flocking around. I've seen those jazz. Talents and. Bought Guitar for Themis and got the page to and so what the Hell isn't it It's it's amazing when you complain a song on one string, right? You are a God. I did play the violin and school no, you didn't I got I. Did two lessons an I didn't even get a boy at the plant myself when I thought Oh my God. Cycle. That that is very difficult instrument to play. It's fun to take. Off. To call singing instead. Love. Did you really know? I think I need a quiet because I was brought up a Catholic school. I did coy but two three times, and then again mom dad I'm not not ever again. You've been an ultra boy Yeah. I had to go with that. Ring a bell when when when they drink the wine, is it the priest? Who you had the good y'all. Mingming naming. For us I went to. Ole. Boys Catholic School On. You. Know we used to do. Mass service. So to be an ultra boy throughout the day and we could go into town, and on the way we could go and buy loads of sweets you know on our way to. Yeah that was the perks and we used to get orders from all of our classmates. You'd be going into the shops with a pocket full of money. It wasn't big money was all change for a few pennies sweets and Of One found something like that. Yeah, and you'd come back with bags full of pennies, sweets and give them out to your mets. Good days call. Yeah event that. Will. Give you a penny chew. Good Times moment. Good Times very uncomplicated simple times new owned. Yeah miserable, miserable, very not at all can mine. Miserable. That's why. You know try and try and look on the bright side of life all the time. Always look. it's But being side is also not problem either you know I can be pissed off as well. I've seen it. I've seen it first time in my every morning in India Because, you wouldn't make me a coffee. In, different rooms here. Thank God. Doesn't matter I mean the least you could have done his wake me up with a nice fresh cup of coffee every morning. CONCIERGE. Tau. Legend. What alleged? It's amazing. How little they they had when you think about it, but they had enough right. Happy. That's all you need. They were. They were totally happy. But the every single day when we went back to do you remember they were on their phones I mean if they didn't have their phones I, don't know what it will be doing. Let's say it's the same everywhere now isn't It is. Honestly like you know have you ever heard people like Mon like saying you know when you're on public transport or whatever, and you see people with their heads in their phones and that's all they do know it is. But if you look back to before the phones they they were, they had their heads stuck in a newspaper or Book I mean for me is I'm doing exactly that but just on my phone I'm reading the news I'm reading articles I'm reading all sorts sham. What most people do, but it's just the medium has changed. That's all. Yeah. So when we were in India, rubber took remote we're not talking about the. We're going to out do we get to? We're not talking about India now forget it. Okay. Go on you're allowed to use so. Who Do we have to chat to today Robert. You could say it a little bit more energetic. Who Do we have to talk to you today? We have mom no, we don't have several. Sorry let me write on her first name. Tricks. Margherita. Okay. So. Who's our guest today Robert? Well, I'm happy you asked then boy. Guest today is Margarita Mavra McAleese from Greece originally right? Awesome. Lust awesome. Margaritas also known as Tita, which is much easier to say. Absolutely that's why I say it and I did such an amazing job. and Margarita we actually met on our troubles in India we did. Lovely. Lady the very, very talented. Yes. She is very talented Discovering her work afterwards, right? Yes. Sure. Because mostly you say hello to someone. in the street, and then when you get see overseas the the same as some street photography. And then it gets you work on languages yeah amazing. And you know what's even more amazing I think. Is the fact that you can meet somebody for literally five minutes and you just know that they're going to be a nice person and it's they're going to be somebody that you're you're gonNA easily get home with and we both instantly got that from her. I. This is why we asked the issue be interested in speaking to us right. Yeah. Yeah. She's very passionate. Isn't she about her work? which is a Berlin because obviously we are to right indeed. Indeed. Shall we gotta run. Let's do it. To. Park cars. Seeking. Amongst the chaos. Massive welcome to Margarita. Margarita. Are you. Fine. Mary. Well, thank you. Thanks for having me. Thank you for coming along indeed. Thank you for coming along. Tell us a little bit about yourself Margarita. I'm Grea-. I come from Greek family have I have lived in many many countries around the world since my father was a diplomat. And I moved around feel four years ever since I was born. So my life has taken me too many beautiful and very exciting places I studied translation and interpreting. I became an interpreter many years ago, and that was probably a very boring. Can we chose? I'm sure it wasn't was in with language or languages. French, English, Greek, Spanish, and German. Cool. On The HALTON. Done. Also. It was probably you know I was good in languages since a young kid and it was probably for me the easiest thing to choose as a career. But I did not find it very fulfilling. It's one thing speaking language. It's another thing being the level where you have to translate. Professionally. Absolutely, it's a different ball game Anyway, photography was always in my life since a young age I had a dog from when I was a teenager. Developed, my own images and I always loved it but it was never a notion really to pursue it professionally because my parents it wasn't anything. That should be taken too seriously or you could rely on it to make a living. I. Mean They had a point in some ways I wanted to be a rugby player hung. Lau, never opened. Some ahead. Yeah Well, I played rugby. Didn't get paid enough but yeah. You you tell your parents I want to be a rugby player in the We'll woke yeah. Photography you. Here we are and about ten years ago when I lived in New York I decided that this was the time to really pursue what I love the most. And I was lucky enough to be. An I enrolled at the international center of Photography and that's when changed. Place the stuff I know I was really lucky and privileged, and I was towards by wonderful teachers. On Your Yoga now is the perfect place to photograph which do streets at least I went about ten years ago. But I wasn't into photography then definitely not street prerogative. But yeah looking back I need to go back. You know 'cause I just remember amazing the characters you just bump into. London. In the lines that yeah. So Lucky because it's only ninety minutes on the train for me so. On I. Did have plans and coming to meet you remember yes and I still hope will happen. For show. But I say meet you. We've already met we did and how wonderful it was in the most past exciting. So we've all met three three. On A. Regular Ganges the. House. The. Crystal. Clear war. Jeez I, WANNA play pay Vanessa very special. It is being travelling to India for seven eight years now and every year I. Go to Nazi. Long every single year, there's no act to India. Without Spending Kista week the. We can honestly we've been the one snow and we have to go back already to be fair. We haven't even scratched the surface basically went up and down the banks of the Ganges. I mean, that's where most of the action as if you're into street photography but in terms of discovering and exploring, Varanasi, we haven't. I've been best seven times and I still feel that I have barely scratched the surface. Was a massive culture shock I won't lie. But we were looked after in our hotel it was unbelievable. It was like we were of their family was a family run establishment and they just look after a so well, asking us in the morning like how you boys. Boys can we get boys and? They were lovely CONNAH's share visit. Patel. Italia. Yeah. We joked when evening and said, well, we will get an upper fighting for the blue on the Ganges. So we joke. We expect coffee at five am towel joking and he said yes. Yes. No potable program just give me a what's up years my waltz up. We'll exchange what's up and get up to make you coffee and you're like, no no, no don't joke. If. They couldn't do enough. So. Yeah. We met on the River Gandhi's. Yes through Vanita yes. That's right. They need has been a very good friend for many years. On I was lucky enough actually to meet him here in London on. Wasted good friends since. So for those who to NOVA NEAT is a Indian street photographer like our ambassador who's just insanely insanely on a lovely lovely I. Really. Yeah. So my recollection of Margarita was walking along Chattan to this lady for literally ten seconds and then I saw a cow. To the corner of my eye standing next to a building full of crosses literally I. Remember running off Margarita sorry. Back I'll be back run up. In Bromberg. Because at the same time, I was running away trying to make the sun kind of looked like it was shining out of the Bible. We set a strange plus the nation with down. must've thought, who are these two guys? And we're both country boys you know. Yeah. Yeah, go just great memories I'm we wish we could have stayed longer and oversee caught up a bit more with you during the trip unseen your instagram. Afterwards, you have a favorite image of. The young Gil stunned in the doorway. With the bicycle and the blue and the yellow. maybe a day or the day after I met you know in Varanasi. So was like, bucks. I love as backstreets. Yes. Beautiful. Whenever I, the as the Sun the light becomes too harsh. Midday I always the back streets than it's the back to a best time. You just get a little drips of light just hitting back and the light is so soft. The you know it's it's beautiful is an amazing image in a way I needed I'd like in my own home. Okay Oh yeah. As we mentioned the prince. Telling Rob I was telling rubbed day print swapping. A thing in street photography. But coming from a wedding photography background nobody wants to swap images of A. That idea I hadn't heard of it until I'm don mentioned it. Yeah. I was at obviously when I went to the land because I've only been doing street photography eighteen months I wish I could have done more of a wed. Ins is my main job. So Dot coms I I when I was at the London wedding street photography festival everybody was bringing Prince meet did I'm bringing prince swap with people they'd never met but I thought it was great. You know some people are asking me if he got any prints of. The only time I've printed, my images is actually for Veneto and he just destroyed them. He was was using them to. To show what could be better and and so on, and so he was full. Origami. Them and ripping them. But. Yeah, I also go back to prince swap in my went obviously via modern PA. He has a if you've been to the foundation in Bristol we've mentioned saying have not been I was intending to go but that fell through I've been in touch with him a few times. So I went to Tony Radio Event, did you buy the book? It's impossible to you. Go there you you see all of the images on the wall and he did a lot in New York City to an he did. Yeah, and also David Huynh was identified David. I guess yeah. Yeah. Yeah. So I think he was the one who initially started off prints. Yeah. To meet your heroes I guess. So who are your heroes? Are might taste the very classic I would say the likes of Henry Turkey Breast Brisson, on. Vivian Maier. Yes exactly. All he got cable. I saw is absolutely on. A Go, win a grand I love Elliott. Is. An all time. Favorite. That's nothing like them. My has such respect for them. I have a lot of respect for anyone who still shoots Phil to find that. You know they have such better photographers than we are or that I am at least the ones you've mentioned are predominantly black and white for obvious reasons who do it into for yourself then more with cholera by Moi. I. Think how because I own should Carla, the only black and white web that I create it and that's because I converted after in black and white was the refugees are documented the Russia J. crisis on the island lesbos from two thousand fourteen onwards are I was looking near the de. Point of entry of the refugees in Greece err on die focused on that island. But you know somehow college did not translate what I felt when I was. When I was shooting and somehow colored took that away. and it was a very traumatic experience and turning images into black and white really made sense me out. So, did you go and do that off your own all? These these are refugees coming from Syria. Afghanistan. Africa. And Twenty Eight fifteen there was a real a real. Influx at that point. Fifteen was the he and they were basically just trying to get into Europe right? and. The Greek island of less voss just off the coast of Turkey is one of the closest points of entry for them, right? Yeah. And then they get there and there. And Cams because you know officer few months six months later, the the Europe started causing the borders. So, they were literally stocks that at first you know they try to move to the mainland's but then there was an agreement between the EU on Turkey that said that any refugee that came into the country had to remain at the point of entry says it was stuck on the islands. And that was tragic because that's because if you look at the numbers sometimes more Reggie's than locals will. So the balance Israeli Vong along we were you there. Many many times I used to go every mangams second monkey become friends with these people. Most of them were really very sweet and they were so eager to be in touch and to to get this story across and I'm young friends on facebook with so many of them. it's always nice to catch off and see where they are and the progress they've made funny enough some of them have made it out. That's what I wanted to ask you. Did you meet people coming in initially and have subsequently met them elsewhere in a different country? I mean, what I'm trying to ask is if you manage to follow somebody's journey from that initial arrival. Followed journey, but I haven't managed to to meet with them. When in London? A year and a half ago. I had an exhibit with this work. On it was very touching because two three people came to the exhibit who were actually refugees and who had gone through lesbian stay warrants in my pictures I hadn't met them. But they were really very moved on. It was moving for me to to see their reactions when they were looking at the work on talking about their experiences. So you you want awards for this series. Committee for me the most important. Recognition that I got was that I was nominated for the city. Of Hope, which was in two thousand and nineteen on they have created a beautiful book. And I was included in the book. So that was really nice used to send me a link to. UNIFIL book published by ten noise because seen the some of the work on oversee online of Boston. Yeah. Very moving. So you've traveled traveled and traveled quite a few places by the sounds of things. Do you have a favorite? Don't say India. Because it's probably your favorite. Definitely but my favorite place out of all the countries that I've lived on have to tell you that the. Only place that I really really felt at home. was. New York. Because it's I know I like cows. The. Sort of you know makes you feel alive and it makes you keep moving and keep going. Never I don't know man and it's such a melting pot of people and the pace of the cities such that you know nobody makes you feel as if you don't belong there. Absolutely. True. Have you been. Maybe. Six seven times. All right. Caller Times on very familiar with New York. My wife works there quite often one year i. took the opportunity to spend a week there just dedicated to st photography. Fantastic and you know what? It's like we street photography you get to know a place intimately because you don't every single street and back alley you find. You look things through different perspectives than you always I walked downtown or anywhere without the photography side of it. When you with the street photography mind you just looking at all different perspective and just things just stand out and things you just wouldn't know dislike five years ago before I started. So yeah. If I if I walk on streets now with non photographer friends, they start looking at me while you're looking at. Doing I. Yeah my husband keeps telling me I'm so, weird. Whenever we're walking together. Can you stop you look like an hoke. So true though you do look such a Weirdo with a you know some of the places you do the angles you get into in just think if someone's watching me now, what are they thinking? So Tita, what's your approach to street photography then? You know I tend to nuptial spots that. I find interesting either because the light is nice at that particular time the moment. Because the background is beautiful. I pay a lot of attention to the backgrounds I. Think they crucial? And I stand there I can stand that for our was an wait until on whatever I've been expecting happens. Very patient very patient you have to be laid. Out of course, you know you always get also, you know those speed interesting lucky moments the moment that whenever you don't expect them. Yeah you know look is something we discussed with Vivey. What is your take on it? I think we definitely make our luck and with experience it becomes more obvious. but also I mean, I can't deny that. Some shots were pure luck. I did did not create them. Of course I was I had maybe an eye to see them. Thought, there is a lot of luck involved as well. Yeah I find the same with my You know when I do a wedding, you have in your mind or just taken a coup image when you get back and you go yeah, it's cool. But it's not what I thought. It might be then you scroll through and you find something you didn't even realize you took sometimes. Pure lack but you have to be there on you have to know what you're doing and yes sometimes you get you get lucky. For, me, I like to think I'm making my own look I. I don't believe in the look element of it. I, think our subconscious. Part of our brains we might not consciously no we but we're going deep on us now. Going to. I can't. equipment. To Use Margarita. ooh. I know I'm not one for it's about the equipment. Curious in I know my goes to, but I'm always reprimanded by most. Mentors and teachers that I'm using the wrong equipment but I am a Nikon Fan. And I have a big Nikon eight fifty. Two of the user weddings, our streets where. They make sense both streets maybe less right up until India I was shooting the street with the decent fifty. So. That's that's a better one though. flytrap and the AFC how'd you go about setting up the fifty fifth street I mean normally with a range finder, you normally have it set up. So it's hyper focusing its single shot. It's quiet blah blah blah. You set up the DA. For Your street work. Usually I shoot in shutter priority. which again is not usual. I. Like my shots to be mostly shots. So I like the I want to make sure that I'm out of fast shutter speed. To freeze the motion. On the I night player what's my? So I'm in during the day there's no issue with no is but at night, the fifty is not good. I'm not happy with the results. Now. The seven fifty is better for in the night and the Sony because I was using. So Nia seven three. Over in India and yeah, you can bump up Aso because fitting in the morning maybe we'll get an up I had to pump a write up on. Yeah you. It's pretty good for noisy pretty crazy when you did that actually. When you revealed the image afterwards is like what? So yes. Use My eight fifty then. Maybe maybe no. Big Crown Royal's and and yes they are visible. but I don't care so much I don't I don't mind people seeing me and after why people don't notice just you anymore when you stay long enough in a in a in a setting. Oblivious. Whole forget about you if. You almost less strange with the big camera because you're not. Even though you're trying to be sneaky. Being Street photographer if they do see your like us a big camera. They're not actually being sneaky. It's obvious. They're taking a photo whereas with range finders the so small that. Looks a bit strange sometimes. Yeah. For some reason that they believe that big cameras, you know you have your professional so. Way because they feel that you're making money out of them. It's also. Most looked completely the opposite thing because I've never had any. So lenses is Marguerite I use Twenty four twenty as an study five. Thirty five less than less I find it too confining and restricting When I go back to my images that mostly shot either and twenty, four or twenty eight. That's that's a brief focal length as well for street photography isn't it? I, don't know I don't I find thirty five cirrus strutting. Okay. That's it's really interesting. Yeah because. Yeah, I. Mainly, thirty five per I do have a rico. As well, which is a twenty eight. Year you get a little bit of leeway you can obviously get really close at I mean. If you're not comfortable in that situation then. Yeah. Laugh. You have. India was great for getting close and nobody you know people so friendly and didn't K- right where you approach them, right? Yeah. Absolutely. Absolutely. Wonderful. So fast. Friendly. Now. Let's go back. In the when you go on these trips teetered. Your your work at the end of it how would you categorize it? Would you categorize it more? In a street photography genre or a travel photography genre or you just don't care. Know I don't really care. I wasn't. I wasn't insys cry beds is travel I would may be used streets because I feel that I have to. DEFINE IT AND SOME WAY Know we have the tendency these days to put labels on everything. To categorize everything and I don truly agree with that because I feel that it again, it restricts us. Argue with I love I mean the girl that you've mentioned that I saw that image I mean if the whole truth it's a street portrait many people will tell you argue that this is not streak photography. Your own person. Right. Near what you WANNA do do what appeals to you and if you really feel you have to put a label on it then. But I tried to avoid. If you follow too many things and the way it should be you just going to be the same as those. Won't to be this. Is. Than don't sense. Some some countries lend themselves naturally more to street photography than others which ones would you say are you know like for myself and done? I WANNA going trouble a little bit more and do a little bit more street together. What countries would you recommend we go to? I mean just being to address India's number one on my list and I. Don't think I will ever stop traveling. At my next recommendation would be Cuba Cuba is opposite the. Tennis most one of the country's I was looking at which. On top list. Yeah. Being there just photograph of wedding wasn't doing street photography ban which was about five years ago. So Hala Quinn I went. And I looked to go to like Havana. Like in line no drive. So I didn't end up doing it now I I myself, but I definitely need to go back and this is one of the places which I was planning. To ascertain. The colors are beautiful. The architecture, the texture on on all the buildings I mean you think you are in a different era and the people are so wonderful and so friendly and warm, and there's music everywhere and everything happens out on the streets and nobody minds to be photographed. It's just skirt music everywhere people dancing saying I even take salsa. ME. Also Lessons Rob. Salsa lessons me new. Why not. to St Johns. But I give it a go you know especially when it's a drink or two? Always helps. Margarita. Photographs to wedding in. ESTEPONA Spain. Just over a year ago. So there's a couple from Tasmania came over to get married. She was originally from Holland. He's from Australia. They wanted to meet me because I've never met them. They invited me to the party the day before. And Yeah. I walked into the party. I'd been there five literally, not even five minutes. The South Sudan Sarah me up. In front of all these people who had never met S- and cartoon like that, and then you know something happening like that. I just got one of those faces. I think people pick on me. conference. But it's an ice breaker right? Yeah. Definitely need lessons. Yeah. Are there any questions you'd like to ask myself a RAV Margarita? Anything in any individually or collectively. Your photographic process. What's do you enjoy belief after you're done shooting? Probably calling for me even though. It's that intriguing part where you might find a jam. All you really looking forward to finding photo that you think you've captured. Can also be a little bit mundane as well. Going through the rest especially I guess for weddings where you take probably take more. So many of a day. Yeah, it's done. It's not a bad thing, but I procrastinate as well. You work rest for a while before you at it. Yeah I. DO I I just say I've just a blog post of when I went to. Hong. Kong when I literally I started street photography. I did a wet photograph to WED in Austria than as two day stopover in Hong Kong. So that was January two, thousand and nineteen. So I literally just added to those and then a blog post. So yeah, I do I do letting Jerry you know. Absolutely. I think if you look at them initially, you may go back a year later or two years later and see something completely different also obstinately, that's why I always recommend noxious AKAI's yeah. What I find the most difficult is. Getting your work out. That to me is the most challenging. You know finding the right outlets and getting it's seen by the right people. It's how you go about it. You know this so many. Options but so many wrong options. Of Time? Yeah. Yeah. For me. It's I find that very frustrating actually especially with whatever instagram bills nowadays I. Remember when I started sharing my street work I will be getting you know not not massive amounts of followings and likes and so on and shares, and but now I get no shares whatsoever you know like on these sites which are the reports that none of that and that's been well over a year. Now since I've had that whereas almost every image regardless of the quality was reposted somewhere. But Yeah I find that very frustrating though because where else do we get to share images? Exactly and and don't do it for the likes I do it. So I can share it. I'm going to see what I've done and insane ceramahs got another road with a spatially wants you to pay for advocates now. So especially when my wedding photography instagram. Thinking shows like sometimes not even ten percent of of my following you know. They, know a business they know. Like I'm getting free basically advertising really. So they want to buy the Cherry, right? Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. It's difficult to understand how it really works. You know with the Algorithm and they change because algorithm. So the time yeah it's a science right indeed and fight. For me that the thing I dislike the most is thinking that you've got maybe five images that you've absolutely nailed only to find afterwards that. There's something wrong with it or is not quite the image you thought it was when look at the camera you know that that for me is a real. flation and it is a little bit of deflation yet But when you when you get out deflation. Pushes you the next time I think you know we don't I? Think you seek in for the? For the ultimate foe to which I know I'm never going to get. To try and get it. Yeah. That is no such thing. Yeah. Yeah. People who think that it's easy. I could do my. It's definitely hard work and dedication which you know I look back when I first started on new just take a picture of you didn't even know what you taking a picture Rav. Now, you dissect every image. What did I do wrong they what should I have then? Yeah. But the the joy is you you go out and you never know what you're gonNA come back. What me entertained. That's the best. Of It. You enjoy I. Loved it. Absolutely. I wish we could get together I. Know we definitely have to make future plans. Yeah obviously when things back to normal I'm going to take a trip to London Raub we'll have to take a trip to the UK London Cheltenham Wales. You. From the West Coast of Ireland County Mayo. In a small village called Louis. But I have been living in Switzerland living and working in Switzerland for the last fourteen years now. Okay and you're happy they're. Absolutely it here in Geneva when I was young. That would make sense being your family or diplomatic engineer ver is definitely on that list wasn't in boarding school. Then I finished high school. So my my family wasn't there but. I really had a good time. I went over to visit rob in October and I stopped off in Geneva to do a little bit street photography before my plane. How was it? Yeah. Cool. Really Cool. On the weather again, we we had amazing weather, which was shockingly warm time year. So. Yeah. That's the thing with Switzerland. They did that the thing I love about it is they have seasons real. Change. Like I grew up, you know in in Mayo and it's just A. Very steady. Cool. Miserable drizzly temperature. Really beautiful like. A we need to own this talk of going places. It's just like Oh, I wanna go you guys could make it easy for me. You know and you come and visit here.

E4 | Baby Hope: The Girl in the White Dress

"Welcome to break in the case chew stories by on my PD detectives podcast series written and produced by the New York City. Police Police Department and supported by the New York City Police Foundation. I'm your host detective Kerry Riley. This is assode four of the baby hope case in the summer of Nineteen Ninety one. The body of a small child was found in a cooler on the side of a highway way. We thought we were going to solve a really quick but years passed without any real progress LE member having this meeting in the office and we all looked at each other and we says like what's left to deal with this and somebody said well let's bury her finally on the twenty first anniversary of finding the body a tip was called into crime. Stoppers I and he told me that maybe five years before a person in a laundromat told them that they saw their sister in a bag dead in a refrigerator. Our reporter is Edward Colin. A former -tective a warning the story contains disturbing urban content and may not be suitable for everyone. Please be advised episode. Four baby hope the girl in the white dress some cops move around a lot in their careers issue rise through the ranks. You're going to a new command with each promotion Russian but the way I see it more often than not detectives tend to look for a home. I wanted to know if Bobby dewhurst felt the same. She's talking a little bit about up. Would you like about cold-case we're Kinda like last stand last defensive of these forgotten cases you know when you talk to anyone in these families they. It's it's almost as if it had happened yesterday. It never goes away. I mean you can accept certain things to point like somebody gets into an accident and they die But when somebody intentionally take someone's life away parents had the what if what happened. What I do wrong? I survived the guilt by doing this type of work. You standing up for the dead. The difference with baby hope was that there was no grieving family. No mother and father to disappoint if the case stayed open. It seemed to me that nobody really cared about that. Little girl so it was like a victim without a family and I guess we were family but there it was a family. Maybe someone called crime stoppers with a second hand story about an awkward conversation in Bronx laundromat. That might have happened and five years before a woman had a childhood memory of seeing the dead body of her sister. The rest of the tip is a little complicated. The woman's aunt was was named Christina Custodio and she lived above the laundromat Christina's sister. The mother of the dead child was named Margarita. They didn't know where she she lived. It didn't seem like the most solid foundation to build on but it was far and away the best lead we'd had in decades at crime stoppers. Detective Elena Donell Donell couldn't wait to tell bobby dewhurst and he was thrilled to hear it. She was excited. Consider US was big. He drove directly to the LAUNDROMAT and had detect. It is from the bronx cold. Case Squad. Steve Berger and Mark Cuban's meet him there. The laundromat was on the ground floor of an apartment building. They couldn't go straight custodio apartment. The didn't aware it was and they couldn't ask around for Christina. They didn't know of. She still lived there if she ever did. They'd have to go door to door with a cover story to find out. We went with a ruse. It is a little weak at. They said that guy had been robbed and they were trying to get hold of his girlfriend. A friend who was opposed to live in the building. It's a little complicated even little boring. That was the point. They didn't want people to care about what they were asking about out. And they didn't want to be remembered I had to go to each and every apartment and knocked on each door and give this story so nobody it nobody knows anything but then I get that too actually. The last department in a man opens up. The door is name is. The man's name was not castio. This is all right. Do you have a daughter about twenty five years old on trying to find out if she's related to this man who got robbed and is no he says my oldest daughter and he pointed to toddler La La. That's maybe your son he points. I mean his sons. Everybody seventeen like all right. Bye Look past them and I see it as a woman wearing the background so I guess she's in the kitchen and she's on the phone I says what about her shot says. Oh that's my wife. Christina Christina Christina Custody Oh goes now I know I'm in right spot and You can't jump for joy but I gotta continue with the Ruse and I go. Hey what what's what's your date of birth you know what's your database was his data on what you know just making small talk and I said to him Says you know what listen kiss. My boss has asked me a question. They may be I missed. Can I get your phone number. Because I don't want to come back here and bother you. So gave me his phone number so we went back to the Bronx Office me. Mark and Steve so that was significant. There are a lot more dots to connect which I computer checks. Found somebody in Queens. But we weren't sure so we're about to go Latin Amok. TAVERNS was voice of reason. I wo- this big slowdown anyways right so we ended it there and the next morning I called up. Melissa mortgage sues did this attorney. who had been on the case May said Melissa? I want a subpoena for the telephone traffic. It took weeks for the phone phone records to come back. The next step was to send out another round of subpoenas for subscriber. ID's for every number calling in or out to that line. Uh It would have taken weeks again at least for those to come back instead. He did a few ordinary internet searches with the phone numbers and he managed to identify identify. Margarita Castillo in a couple of minutes. He found that she had a non driver. Id and requested her photo and so Babi. dewhurst went to Queen's with two other detectives from cold-case Wendell Stratford and Stephen Litwin Stratford at worked on the baby. Hope case for years that when was new to the squad it was August twenty second almost a month after the tip came in they had to do the same old rigmarole again hitting every apartment in the building so no one would think they were being targeted bigoted and Wendell hat on his I think it was a blackberry attack. He had a photo array on a photo array has six pictures a suspect in five fillers. Wendell had one from another case so this was just a random picture of some guy. I should mention that I've knocked on thousands of doors in my cop lifetime. It's it's called canvassing and you can for every major crime in some neighborhoods doors are knocked on routinely. Did you hear anything about three in the morning no gunshots and then it's on to the next door. The next floor citizens of New York City should assume that when a cop knocks to show you a picture. They're looking for that. God they are not there because an anonymous caller said something that led to the possibility that one of your neighbors might be a person of interest in a twenty twenty two year. Old Child murder. We go door to door door to door with this story and question. We always saw from the top. And of course we're looking for is on the bottom so the door opens opens up and and the chain was on the door. I seen half of a face and it was Margarita. I'm showing a picture trying to tell us something I get in on the end on the oblong place. I like okay. Okay okay I mean don't you and and I'll be back. The NYPD is about thirty percent Latino and we have over two thousand certified. Spanish translators But the Brooklyn Office of cold case was tiny. Then maybe five detectives and Dewhurst wanted someone. Good Stephen Linton adjust. Come to our command man. Stephen Saudi Atta own woman that he worked with Evelyn Gutierrez special victims so he got a hold of her. They went back to Brooklyn to meet Detective Gutierrez. At this time. I tweet the plan again. A single photo would be better than six dewhurst picked out someone who looked like an especially nasty character. I go back to that door. I gotTa Evelyn with me. And I get Stephen Whitney. I have an envelope and I have this picture and I knock on the door. And she's there and then I say we gotta talk to the. She's a little reluctant to lettuce. Him But Evans translating my questions in her answers so we get in the apartment and I saw talking to her as I'm looking for this guy and she turns around says that's not the picture you showed me so I was like all right all right. Look I wasn't Had Fast. I wasn't going to show you the picture of who I was looking for because you told them and tip the more but right now I'm taking a chance I wanNA know where this guy is. And she's like I don't know I don't know what I WANNA do. is they used to say when when I was like a on the covering the Celtics wanted to come out of sideways. They don't WanNa come direct. I'm not sure if she's seen the television that night of me asking for help. And if she did it would've been all done with dewhurst. Another officers had been all over the news a month before talking about baby. Hope I wasn't aware fact if she was responsible in any way or involved in any way with this with this crime of the girl being murdered. You never know what people know everything nothing. Let's step back for a second. Lots of people don't like talking to cops for a lot of reasons. Some have had bad experiences rance's with US and some are bad people with imigrants. There's another whole draft of concerns. Maybe the person answering the door is documented But other members of the household or not so far all we have is a tip and only the insignificant parts have been confirmed that a lady in the Bronx thanks name. Christina has a sister named Margarita but if Margarita really was baby hope's mother Dewhurst head to be very very careful. He came at her with this rooster. That photograph and show it there and I said WHO's this. He says he lives. WHO's this she's like? No no no is this your husband are now and then I calm it down. I'm like whose was children. Are these in this house. My daughter's was just one of their husbands. No no no no and then now sorry created a problem in create the proud to solve now so then I turn around I go you know what I I don't know. But maybe we gotta do is just Viana. I don't know the guy just riding on here on the paper. You don't know maybe you won't have to go to court because nobody wants to go to court right so she writes. I don't know something something really. I don't know who he is and I tell put on the envelope and then she does a ceiling and then signing name across it. Margarita Lick the envelope to seal it and handed back to Dewhurst now. He had what he needed. I got DNA. And then. When I left I said listen? I'M GONNA come back but I get the doors. Because they may know who this guy is and she rambled off a list of all her doors. She said she had eight eight kids or girls. dewhurst wrote down their names and ages. I took that invoice the envelope. I sent it to the lab and I came back out there. Would Stephen Evelyn again. But when I knocked on our door she wasn't at home. Margarita wasn't home but her daughters were she had twins from another marriage and and when I'm talking to them the same thing you know this guy or whatnot had them sealed envelope. Signed the slopes are wouldn't make some up and and they said you should talk to marabout down the block. Meribel was one of their sisters. The interesting thing was that Bobby Dewhurst hadn't heard her name before Margarita had included her on her list of kids. Honest mistake maybe one way to find out. Fortunately Meribel Arabella live nearby so I went down a few doors and knocked on the door and I seen rebel. She looked like the picture. It looked like the sketch of baby. Hope grown up and come to life. The envelopes went to the lab for DNA in a analysis in August is the beginning of October when dewhurst gets the news that detectives have been waiting to hear for twenty two years. I got the results assault. SPEC that Margarita Cossio is in fact the mother of maybe hope I. He called his bores James. O'Neill he was the chief of fugitive enforcement than these the police commissioner now but we did finally get the DNA head was actually driving. Arriving northbound on the FBI driving swung around and came back to work. It was great to say the look on Detective dewhurst Bobby's face here's detective Wendell Stratford. Commissioner National Neal was achieved at the time told US collateral stops to give you all the manpower unique guys from the task force and from violent felonies and just work every day. And you'll get it going. dewhurst couldn't wait to get back to Queens to talk to Margarita but there was a hitch again the same hitches before so now got a result and now I have nobody. In my office said speak Spanish. I'd been talking to my old partner. Sylvia on the phone Linda know what's going born on because she had a vested interest. She worked on it for several years so I called up. Melissa mortgage is aimless Melissa mortgages was the DA assigned to the case since Nineteen ninety-one. How would it be if I brought my retired partner along to do the interview and she says that'd be fine? That will look good. We'll be back after the break. So detective Sylvia Bony came out of retirement. So we go back and we knock on the door. She's little agitated Margarita. She's what are you doing. Why why did you come back? But I just got to talk to you one more time and and that'll be that'll be the end of it. She's a guy but I I can't talk to you now. I gotTa Talk. Take my grandchildren to school. As I all right so silly as gay let you know so we go get a cup of coffee. They're under a tremendous amount of pressure. But they still can't rush when Margarita came home. They went back to talk when we talked to people. This is not a Just a fax actress. Get to it and we're in and out you have to slowly move into it and get what get the information you trying to illicit so my approach is friendly. Says Okay Margarita. You said you had X.. Amount of kids went down. Went down the list Margaritas over by stall and she start in the cook and this children and the apartment or grandchildren that she's babysitting and she's starting to cook get up to the park and say what about the child that died and now she's getting nurse Bruce and she's she's moving the pots a little bit or frying pan and she's like no no you're mistaken. There's there's no child died Margarita. Did I I need to know about the child that died and I I guess sent to serious. 'cause I know everybody's out there waiting and some of them WanNa lock her up you know and I know how are these feel. She's not responsible in the actual debt. The reason for that was the evidence of sexual assault. So I walk over the stove I shut it off. If I take a bunch of hand I sat down moving. Close Mike Margarita. There are a number of people outside who want got to rescue. But I know you didn't kill that little girl I need to know what happy and she's crying and she's afraid and and And she's like I'll tell ya tie and right there and then Sylvia's what what was her name and And she said and Halacha Kostya they'd be hope is helical studio and Halacha. Castillejo is baby. Hope so now we have a name. Actually we have a case. They read Margarita her Miranda rights and she signed them. She was ready to talk. DOC somebody came to pick up the kids that were there. She said she didn't have the child at the time of her death. In fact she didn't know Alica was dead always. I tried to convince herself she wasn't. It's a long story. I'll give a shorter version. Margarita was from a little village in Puebla Mexico Sokoto called a cut level conde. LP noser touche pretty little place but poor. She was with a guy named Dasa from when she was thirteen he. It was a drinker abusive. She had three kids with them. She said she lived with her mother-in-law and when her mother in law died she took the kids and went back to her own family family and then she met a man by the name A Narrow Ramirez and they decided to come to mark narrow had relatives in New York City so she said they crossed the border and they made their way to New York City. They stay with her narrows family in Queens two nieces and a nephew a few Balbina F. A.. Hanya Khurana oh. There may be a decade apart. Bobby Anna is the oldest fifty or so single. No kids of her own Owners working if a Hanieh is in her late thirties married with a kid. Colorado is a dishwasher twenties single then Margarita Canario or there until they save up enough to get their own place. Margarita says she was able to obtain citizenship under the amnesty of eighty six. Their kids were born here. Three Kids Pretty Fast Lauren. Sita in eighty six and Halacha in eighty seven meribel eighty eight. I can only only soon. It was tough because yeah the immigrants in city They don't have very good jobs and it was tough because Harrow wasn't so different from I husband bed drinker bed to her and they eventually separated so the living apart. She was living at the Bronx time he was living in Queens. Needs an Iro goes back to live with his nieces Balbina. NFL HEGNA his nephew. Colorado may have moved out by then one day. He Calls Margarita Rita asking her to bring the girls over for a visit. They had a nice day and that as she was about to leave with the three girls. He said you're not taking the girls my the girls and pushed her out the door and she managed only to get out the door with Lawrence seat at the two younger girls. On Halacha Meribel were left behind. She said all right there with the father children the nieces are in there. They're adults she just went on with Lawrence seat But she comes back and and she knocked on the door and she's got like Pampas in this and So when she comes back she gets confronted by Bobbin Balbina delivers a message from Monaro. The little girls. They're not gonNA live with you. They're going to live with me. They're my children now She she didn't know what to do according to and she left the Pampers or whatever whatever it was she had She tried to come back again. They didn't live in that apartment anymore. They moved she later finds out that Haro the father of the children he he got thrown out of the apartment due to his drinking. So now the kids who were Bobbin. NFC Hangar in her family Gordon Harsh. She doesn't know where they are. So time goes on the time part. That's the hardest to figure out how old were on like a admira bell when they went to Queens. How long did they stay? Helical was murdered in July nineteen ninety. One I'm guessing here but the kids could have been there a year or more by then Margarita. said she went to look for. The girls. Made some cools. It was probably around nineteen ninety-five when a friend who knew both families called her with some news. News Valby had died. The friend also told Margarita where her children were living and she goes over there. She knocks on the door. There's no answer. And but she sees little kids shoes outside the door and all that she feels but eventually she gets a phone call from Colorado Colorado Isabel being NFL. If any has brother and he says why would you want why are you harass in my family. He's like I want my children back and he's basically well. You're even have to pay me all this money. And she didn't have this money. What did she have to pay the money he wanted Money back for food clothing I guess shelter for the children. It'd been five years at this point five six years. Yeah somewhere around that. And she was of little means. She's seamstress in factory. She didn't have that money I guess. She pleaded with them his best she could. Margarita hung up the phone. Eventually Conrado called back again. The time is hard to pin down but at this point were in nineteen ninety ninety seven or nine hundred ninety eight Colorado calls again. And he's like do you want your child. She says okay. I'm talking about two children. I want Mirabella. And he's like look do you want do you want him back and she's Garrett will meet me at this restaurant so they meet in a restaurant in Queens and Aw Margarita tells me. She took Lawrence to the restaurant when she gets it to rush on she sees Colorado. He's at the table Amerigo and she's I guess she's panicking and she's like hell can can Rondo is a guy I don't know. He said he was in Mexico for a while and when he got back about being told him that that on Halacha was dead. Margarita asked him how she died where she was buried. He said he didn't know and then he started getting frustrated. And he got to a point like do you want this kid of what an so. Margarita took meribel home as for unhealthy. She told me she felt What she knew of Colorado Arado that maybe he sold her? Maybe she didn't want to believe that she was that. Margarita finally had myrabell back back but she wasn't in good shape. I remember US trying to health department and trying to find medical records for them and there were none. Meribel was eight or nine years old and she'd never been to school. Margarita enrolled her but it didn't work out she. She took a door to back home to her her mother Mexico and she left her there for a few years to start with school and be around her own daughter's like the man and said it's a long story so now Margarita gave a full statement as to what she had known and why she didn't have children and dewhurst believed saved. What Margarita told him was true enough? But we're supposed to be at the stage where you don't hedger dodge or hide the parts that might make you look not so good the moment of truth you could say it bothered bobby that when Maurice told him about meeting Colorado with the restaurant she said that a role does son. An adult waited outside to keep her safe. WHO's this now? She hadn't mentioned him before. And this is the part that bothered me. She says she never wanted wanted to give up. The kids never stopped trying to find them. Remember that first confrontation scene with Balbina at the door. The little girls. You're not gonNA live with you. They're gonNA live. Put me in my children now. And she left the Pampers or whatever it was she had. She's there to fight to get her kids back. Why is she bringing supplies? But the most important thing. The only thing that matters was that Margarita had nothing to do with the murder of baby hope and she didn't know who did dewhurst was done talking to her for now then her family started showing up to pick up so meribel shows up and I call on our bell. We gotta gotTa talk so means Salvia talked about Amera. Bell didn't WanNa really talk to US marbles twenty five years old now and a mother herself but when the murder happened she was three and a half years. Old Memory is a tricky thing especially kids that young children can be considered considered. Swear -able able to testify at six or seven give or take depending but three and a half year olds can remember things even when they might not want to she starts a talk and you know it's emotional. She's crying and she did remember Alica in a way but she didn't know what was assistant. Camara Bell just thought on Halacha Angie. She called her was coming back. She was just another kid in the same bed places she was she also thought because in Halacha was smaller. I guess in stature that this was a younger girl. Angie was a year older but tiny three foot to thirty pounds pounds. If meribel thought Angie was a sister she was her baby sister. Bobby DOERR DIDN'T WANNA make go back there. But he had to talking talking to them. It's clear that his admiration for Meribel is pretty profound for awhile. Bobby just wanted to talk about how great Meribel was greater husband was how good they were doing and I had to push him to go back to the ugliest stuff the same way he had to push meribel. I mentioned name stores such as Bow Beena you mentioned and all she could tell me was one was good. One was bad as she elaborated about. The bad one said the bad warn would tie them to the legs of a table and that would feed her door scrap satyrs if she was an animal in a cage scraps food. They didn't have beds. They would sleep on the floor. And they're they're betting was like a plastic tablecloths. Were stuff to do not sexual but hateful and it was really terrible. And she's getting real emotional and she really wanna go too much deeper into all that let's say atrocities and while Meribel remembered one woman is music and the other is nice. It's harder to tell the two apart at this distance Marville said that one night she unhealthier were tied to the table on Halacha told her not to fall asleep she she eventually falls asleep. She has rustling plastic bags. She put her in Puerto Rican folder over and then she said she didn't see in Halacha again. Ever Merrill described her last memory of Angie. She remembers in Halacha Walking Away with a man Dan my commands holding her and arms. She's happy Meribel. Couldn't forget Angie but she did a lot with. The memory is kind of beautiful what she did the way she remembered the last time she saw. Angie she was happy her hair was brushed and she was in a white dress. A nice man was taking her away. Meribel remembers watching her through the window. When Angie wave goodbye all of that is hard to hear but the hardest for me is the part about the white dress and she did wear one but not then? She wore a white dress at her funeral. Detective Jerry George. Jonas and his family bought it for. I don't want to sound mystical. Put an historians hideous as this one you come across a moment of grace. You shouldn't and let it go anyway. After Angie's gone meribel still where she is with a nice one in the mean one years this past three or four maybe and then Balbuena dies months later or maybe years Conrado takes her to his apartment in in the Bronx from the Arab goes home to her mother and then she goes down to Mexico in time. Meribel opened up about what had happened. What she remembered about? Angie the sisters listened and they took care of her helped her get better. And that's the most strange and wonderful thing about how this case broke. Remember the crime stoppers tip to Elena donell. They saw their sister in a bag dead in a refrigerator in the box Again it was a decisive lead but every factual detail in that sentence is inaccurate. Nothing happened in the Bronx honks. I'd Bet the word cooler was mixed up with refrigerator. And it wasn't Meribel who talked to the woman in the LAUNDROMAT. Whoever it was who said that she remembered seeing her dead sister had never seen on Halacha Castio alive or dead but that tip every word of it wrong is what led to the discovery of the truth? We'll be right back after the break. So let's get back to it bobby. dewhurst has margaritas story he has Mara Bells the two main characters or the nieces bell being an F. A. Henia no matter which was the main in one. Neither was the main suspect since we have a sexual assault. We believe we don't know but we believe that the rape is not unrelated to the murder so we have a guy there. We need to find the guy. There's Conrado the nephew but if a HEGNA has a husband and there might have been a male guest or two do you would take some digging F. A.. Henna and Balbina were only nicknames. By the way the Spanish customers go by two last names the fathers mothers a cop or anyone else who took a report might get it wrong on paper on Halacha Castillo could have been an helical Ramirez or unhealthy Castillo Ramirez. They couldn't just run the names and getting address back in five seconds. It took days of street. Were computer work knocking on doors. It's is not as if the detectives needed any incentive to hustle but then they got one for twenty two years. They'd wanted all the media attention they could get for baby hope but if this was my case of lost when I saw this on TV there's been a break in a murder case that has stumped police for two decades. The victim victim was a young girl. But that's about all they knew about her until now. A tip came in after police posted flyers in the area this summer someone came forward saying they might know a relative and that led detectives to the child's mother her. DNA was a match for the time. Being police are not releasing baby. Hope's name nor the the name of the mother or father fearing it might compromise the investigation. This does not help. The news might in fact inspire appreciation with particular interest interest in the case to hop on a plane for parts unknown but do hers does get a lead on. FM and address an apartment in Queens Bobby and and Wendell Stratford race out there. This time they bring detective Carlos Vasquez as a translator. He was in the juvenile crime squad which also fell under O'Neill's command. They find her husband. Two sons not. Surprisingly the family is less than cooperative. This is Wendell Stratford. We had to do a lot of Little skulduggery just to get them to admit that they were the right people because they didn't want to admit it at first. I believe that someone had made a phone call. told him that the police have been knocking looking. You know for you guys. We're not getting straight answers. We're going around in circles around around this and Sam like I say you know what we're GONNA do. We're GONNA leave. We're GONNA we're going over to Brooklyn right now. We take them to Brooklyn Tomorrow Office in cokie squad. The family members were interviewed separately F. A. Hegna was the one that we're most interested in but since the murder was also a sex crime. The men weren't aren't wolf. The Hook that aspect of the case was another reason. They asked Devlin Gutierrez to help translate again. She'd helped with the first interview with Margarita in August when they got her. DNA from an envelope. Evelyn had been in special victims for years. Wendell Strat for talk to the father. He didn't think the guy had a clue Lou. There were two sons both boys said that Balbina was the cruel one were always beating the girls calling them. Names and EFI heinous. It was like voluntee- There was hard to get it at her but we didn't get much out of her. She was almost like argument of with her dead sister. She was like why would she take on this responsibility ability of those two girls. Why this is Evelyn Gutierrez? If a hidden was very special she wasn't really pleasant to speak to when I conduct interview. Try to humble myself down to that person. I felt that I had to come up to that person like I had to like. Maybe try to humble her down so then this way we can meet somewhere She was she was pretty aggressive. When speaking in this is Wendell Stratford? They were very like you know they bought these problems into my house and we have to feed feed these kids and then you know nobody was here to watch them. You know have my own family to take care of. They didn't belong here. You know it was just it was just kinda crazy to hear. Do people talk about you. Know two little children. Nobody wanted them. Nobody wanted the girls when Dole said that if any admitted that the children were often tied up up. She didn't untie them. Slept in like that said not responsibility and she didn't feed them not do it said. My sister took on responsibility that those hers. I have my own family. They were two girls in the house and then one day there was only one F. A. Hanya and you didn't have much to say about that either. Sure members she sleeping in her room and through the wall into the next room is where assist about about beaner with sleeping. She hears a loud noise. She's like what's that and she's like I'm going to the park. Tamar and Yang is saying what park. You don't worry about it. You don't like the park on an apartment at. She says they're talking through the wall. The Wall is so thin they can have a casual conversation conversation so she says the following morning they order cab and both her brother and assistant and Mayor Bell take this cooler out the the apartment and they they leave in a cat and that's it. She says the sister returns but she never never makes an explanation in about whereas in Halacha and if Hegna doesn't ask not the most credible story but she puts Conrado with the scene which was interesting. Her son say he's an alcoholic. He's drinking whenever he's not working. The manhunt for Colorado Water was on O'Neill was in charge of fugitive given forcement so we had a lot of cops to put into play cops who specialized in this twenty four hours later one of O'Neill's team's picked up Conrado at the Italian Alien Restaurant in the village where he worked. He's delivered to call case in Brooklyn no handcuffs. It's friendly as they can make. He wasn't under arrest arrest. Bobby dewhurst. Evan Gutierrez sit down with them read him his rights he signs the form agrees to talk to the Spanish interpretation. But I'm still an investigator. I immediately know like what the next question is going to be so involved in they asked to take a DNA sample. He agrees signs. Another form. Swab is cheek. This is it. They got the guy in the box once. I got that information from Margarita. Garrido who the child was where the child was in whom she was. Wet was eight days before I had the man responsible for her death so so we took eight days around the clockwork and in eight days. You sit in front of me two things I should explain here today every nypd detective active squad has an interview room. Set up for video in my old squad. You can even get close ups. There's a control panel in another room. Uh back then when you had a guy in the box and two thousand thirteen still back then you read. A Guy's rights talked to him for a while and if he had anything. Let's say you call the DA the DA brought the camera and an operator to record an official statement. The other thing the box. That's what we call would interview room for. Detectives how good you are in the box is how good you are at your job. Different approaches work with different people. You can go in like a therapist talking about feeling through like a used car salesman smiling while you try and close the deal. I'd bet the best interrogators or very good at poker ochre. You're calling bluffs. Looking for tells with Conrado Bobby dewhurst and Evelyn Gutierrez have to take their time. They need to get to to know him a little bit. They don't know what he knows. Create some sort of a timeline with them as when he came into the country who use with where he was living. And here's the short version came from Mexico when he was a teenager. Worked as a dishwasher still does live with his brother in the Bronx for awhile and then with his sister's in Queens Waffen kids now in the Bronx again. He'd gone back to Mexico a couple of times sometimes for years at a stretch. He doesn't ask why he's there now. They've talked for a while. They're not complete strangers anymore. It is very calm. dewhurst moves a little closer to the subject at hand. I'm looking for a man end by name. A Pro Ramirez. You know who he is says yeah I know but I don't like he's. My uncle. says his uncle had a wife Margarita. He says they had two children together. Two girls not three. So I kinda rephrase it I said are looking for may not be the same guy because he's got three doors But he does have a nieces name about being an NFL fan. You can Rodham agrees. Yeah those are sisters. So that's that's his uncle an Iro. They must be talking about the same guy it insane. Helga assess your son helicase. Oh Yeah Yeah. Yeah that's one. Colorado said that his mother was sick at the time and he went to Mexico to see her when he came back his sister Balbuena said the girl had died but she refused to tell him anything else whenever we would ask Belbin about being a wooden really wouldn't really say anything about it and she'd get angry and only say look she died. Let's let's just forget about that. And that's it. He said Delvina Dard without saying anything else about it never told him never told a Hanya either. He hadn't lived with his sisters for years. He said he was in in the Bronx with his wife. But back then he did stay over maybe one night a week. One of his dishwashing jobs was at a restaurant in Queens. It would have taken them. I'm three hours to get there by train from the Bronx. The girls loved him. He said called MANCO kissed him would lie in bed with him. I START I guess. zeroing zeroing in a little bit. More did Conrado know about baby. Hope had he seen the news on. TV In the past couple of days. Yes and yes CANARIO. New Angie was baby hope. She looked just like the sketch so now everybody knows what's going on here and everybody knows that everybody who knows. I'd say that the time playing games was over but apparently it wasn't one Like he really like he was trying to find out more from us than than than anything else he wanted to see what. We had doers tasks. If BALBINA had been tough on the girls no he said maybe she spanked them if they acted up but no Evelyn tells him she heard different. And then that's when I said your sister said a lot of bad things happened in that house. Conrado doesn't about-face Yeah bow tie them up. He said the girls were babies when they first arrived and they were big by the end so then I asked him are. Are you taking the secrets your grave. And he nodded. Some people never confess. Some people deny everything until they don't and then it's like flipping a switch. You can't shut them up running out of paper writing down other people give it up by bit. I wasn't there turns into. I was there ear but I didn't even see anything and then it's the other guy had the gun you go over it again and again and you get one new admission on each round truth on the installment plan. That's the way this one's going. I'm not sure if I'd have had the patience for this one not the patients nations but the stomach I never worked in. Sex crimes never wanted to especially crimes against children with Evelyn. had she gave a random example from one of her cases. How can afford your man? Tell me that his ten year old daughter is jumping on his lap and she's enticing him. Ten year olds. Don't do that so listening into people's Star has been on when I'm interviewing them and they're saying these things you have to guess he got kind of agree with them as a yes. Yes tell only more I I try to normalize it. I sympathize with them. I basically want to hear that story. I don't think you're a bad person. People do bad things. It's it's the best way to gain their confidence going with either. A mother approach. I really try not to go with the detective approach because I want them to open up to me I come from the heart. You know you can be the worst person sitting in front of me and I'm coming to you from the heart and she answered from the heart. When I asked about her? First impression of Conrado I I saw straight up pedophile. That's what I saw a straight a pedophile. All right. So it's time to push them a little more. They showed him a picture of the cooler. That's when his whole attitude changed. They see a little bit more slump on the chair. The line of questioning now becomes more intensified. Alright Conrado says. He admits to knowing a little bit about the cooler. He does about To help him bring this cool it to the park they bring it to the park. They leave the cooler and they walk away in version. He didn't know what was in the core at first quilt. So he's like we left the cooler and that was it so I get them right. Excitement statement this is Colorado statement translated by Evelyn Gutierrez. My sister asked me as a favor to accompany her to the park for us to take the icebox without me. Knowing what carried inside we took a cab toward to oh seven and there. She told me we would deposit the cooler I asked what was the reason for leaving there and she answered angrily that we should go back to catch the train or a taxi. I asked what was inside the cooler. She did not answer me. That's why I tell you friends. Don't ever do a favor for anyone as the saying goes if one one kills and the other is holding the leg both are criminals. That's the first part of the statement. I read it word for word. There isn't much more but I'll just give you the highlights. They were a nice family. I keep asking myself why she did it. The girls were beautiful. Why did this tragedy end up happening? After their mother handed them over she never visited them. She never asked about them either. And that's how things were. I was kind signed to them at no point. Did I ever abuse them. After he writes the statement and I was basically like come on what was in the cool all right. The kid was in the calling. The rest has to the story. He sticks to his home in the Bronx when bowel being 'cause he knows Angie's inside the cooler but he never opens. The Lid fell being never tells him what happened and he still has no idea. It's around three weeks before the bodies found and he knew in JI was baby. Hope from the beginning he'd known all alone. It was good to hear that but the admission didn't really get the detectives any closer to where they had to go. Evelyn has Conrado if he thinks Angie is resting in Peace Now yes he says it's just before midnight the take a break. Get Food Bobby Dewhurst. I asks Conrado if he knows what. DNA is could share. Explains that semen was found the body and that scientists could tell if it came came from him dewhurst holds up the DNA kit. I'm showing me and says there's GonNa be a problem and he's like no the thing is. DNA wasn't isn't a problem for Colorado back in ninety one. The evidence of sexual assault came from a chemical test. For prostate specific antigen it can establish published presence of seminal fluid but not who it came from. There was no DNA profile of the assailant. Gherardo didn't know that. At that point point bobby takes one of those hands and cuffs him to a chair he leaves and then Evelyn leaves as well. I know this from reading bobby. Do Hearst's extremely family meticulous eight-page single-spaced report of the interview. Carlos Vasquez was taking over as translator. He'd been watching outside it along with Wendell Stratford. James O'Neill and others bobby wanted to regroup before he went back in but there was also a little psychology at were. Were maybe a little theater. You're the handcuffs would remind Conrado who was in control. They had to keep pushing him. Maybe switch it up a little. Sometimes men will open up to a woman woman and sometimes there are things they can only talk about Guida Guy Yes. I know how that sounds now. Go back call US fast whereas my present partner and He translates and Wendell's traffic came into so I'm hey these guys weren't in the room from the beginning again. This is Wendell Stratford again again. I don't want to stereotype them but he was like one of those guys that that he just forgive you that look like why am I here what did I do. I don't know why you guys are bothering me. You know like you want to smack him in the back of the head and be like sit up and you know you know what time it is but he just you know arms on the table head down the record detective. Stratford did not smack. The suspect Chief O'Neill was watching and he'd arranged for representatives from the legal bureau to observe the interrogation. There were not going to be any mistakes. We're getting them to to open up more. You know. He was being cagey and about being dead. He was building up to blame his sister. Conrado said delbene. It would tie the girls up when she was in home and she was out working just about all the time will I would-i mean title. Like how he goes. They put the rope on their neck. I said running neck. He goes yes I said we'll show me so I had my I had a suit on that so I took my tie off. I made a loop and put it around my neck and I said show me and he told me to sit down on the floor so I sat down on the floor. And he took the the N. Y.. Tie entitled to the DOORKNOB and I said well what was the purpose of this and he goes because if she leaned forward it would choker and that way she'd have to sit up then she couldn't lay down so she'd have to sit up the whole time and that's how they would keep them in line He made some reference to you. Wanted to keep the kids out of the refrigerator from eating the food and stuff when they want around Colorado keeps insisting he wasn't there when Angie died he had worked that night and he going home and about being a called him to come help them help move something and we knew it was alive because we kind of pin them in a corner about the timeline for the subway ride. He said it took him hours to get to queens and then he acquiesced and and said Oh yea I must've I've been in the apartment I was there. He said the Kulu already packed. He didn't know how she died. She was just like that. He founded that way and in when back at them. The progress wasn't steady when Conrado admit something new. He denies something he just admitted but now he gives them this he gets. He's qualls from assist just about being a saying you gotta come. When he's at work? You gotta come here and get helped me out When he shows up he said helicopter was on the floor? I guess in the Hallway Alway on on a green talk you know the girl was dead and then he admitted to putting her in the cooler I said well. How'd you make effect in even showed us how he put her in? You know what he did to get the into. The cooler here is doing this with his hands and he folded the body over her feet. We're up overhead and a Shanzer in front of a face. You know tighter so she she would stay in a particular position so she was placed in a bag put in the cooler. F- put Soda Cans on top of covered it and put the top on. He sat back in like you know. Put his hands up in that hits it. What else do you want now? At that point he has a sister. Dead sister can blame. He still says that he doesn't know. Oh how she died correct. You don't have a case. Well we got a case because he put himself there he put himself there. And we're seventy five percent closer than we were twenty years ago. I feel a little bit listening to that. I'm telling Wendell what. Da's of told me over the years when I have hit an impasse in homicide investigation instigation. You don't have enough. He says what I've said to them. You know we got the right guy here but we both know that seventy me five percent is a number that doesn't matter you got them or you. Don't he's thinking and we we could see sitting he's thinking and we didn't even hit him with the sex abuse stuff yet. Yeah there's that the evidence kit with DNA. On the table they could've bluffed. They couldn't claim that would prove proved that he raped her legally. They were allowed to do that but they didn't. They brought it up. Let it drop for a while. It was time to get back to it. I figured I'd have to. I got to be his friend. I don't WanNa be accusatory. I don't WANNA be You know you did this and you better tell us that gets nothing you get nowhere With that so I had to find an angle. He would say how you know. They loved They'd come in. They'd lie down with them. They'd play with them in my mind he was just grooming indicates to get them ready because he's perf that's and that's what they do. It wasn't as if it was the most reliable source. But she told Wendell Dole this and that she had worn Ou- Beena to watch conrado around the girls because he does things with them that a grown man shouldn't do with little girls kissing them on the mouth of the detective suggested that maybe he had too much to drink and out of love for these kids. There was some kind of Accident Putting things that way could run could see something like that might have happened. And then he goes on to say that he was drunk and then when he got home and helicopter was coming out of the bathroom and that's when he brought her in the room and he said he had sex with. That's it though. He said just that once just that kid not meribel ever in certainly no one else. It was a a major breakthrough you could say. They went from seventy five percent to ninety five percent there. But that's still not there. He said the sex the sexual assault and the death had nothing to do with each other. It was days maybe weeks between the crimes. Conrado could not be charged urged with rape the statute of limitations had long passed. He denied killing her. No one believed him but a defense story could say truthfully in his client did not have a monopoly on child abuse in that house far from it. They take a break doc. It's time to call the DA and get what they have on video there so Klaus Navy. They'll get a little more when Melissa mortgages came same. Da as since the beginning. Evan Gutierrez Sees Conrado does offer a bit. That's good to see there's an old detective adage that only the guilty sleep deep when they set up a camera. It's Melissa Mortgages Bobby dewhurst Carlos Vasquez in the box. Now this is on video. I've seen it sits there. He's a small man big mustache. He has a white short sleeved shirt buttoned down his arms crossed As if he might be a little cold they start again at the beginning. Mr Ramirez My name is goosing mortgages motors. Work District Attorney's Office Conrado sits there arms folded. He grunts and nods at the questions looking back and forth between Carlos and the DA. You know how the rest of the Miranda warnings go. I'll I'll skip ahead getting this information about your rights. Are you to talk to me. Conrado looks down for a sex and then he shakes his head get. Ah It's a quick shake. Almost as if he's shivering Bobby Dewhurst must have really really hoped it was shiver because otherwise Conrado seems to be saying no. He doesn't WanNa talk more. That isn't clear how Carlos has to ask this. Now that you know your your rights. Do you want to talk no this time. The answer is clear next time break. In the case the final chapter of the baby hope story break in the case is produced by the New York City a police department and supported by the near see police foundation thanks to CBS News. Thank you for listening. I'm your host detective carry Riley until next time be safe.

Chestnutty rivers into Lake Lanier popular activities on the lake include boating fishing camping be with a ten or an RV additionally there golfing facilities world class, kayaking, water skiing, and swimming spots in location is another thing that Lake Lanier has going for the Lakers located forty five minutes north of Atlanta Gainesville and Buford are the two close closest cities to the lake and both offer dining shopping.

Georgia mountains are also a day-trip away with cities, Delana and Helen offering two distinct destination and Jimmy Buffett's Margarita Ville is now in charge of Popular Lake Lanier islands offering song inspired water parks, RV resort Marina, and more. We're fortunate today to have with the Stacey Dixon Stacy's president discover. Lake. Lanier Stacy's a native southerner raise in the southwestern Georgia town of Albany. stacy's worked in the tourism industry for over twenty five years now and includes stops the travel and leisure planner and past president and CEO of the Clayton County Convention visitors bureau in Metro Atlanta Stacy's worked in her current position since two thousand and six. She's a past president of both the Atlanta Metro Travel Association and the Northeast Georgia Mountains Travel Association also served on the Board of directors for the Georgia. Association of Convention and visitors. Bureau she and her husband Jeff and her son Noah make their home in flowery branch Georgia. Stacey. Welcome to the show. Hey, thanks for having me. Glad to be here. And we are glad to have you. So let's get right to it. We know that Lake Lanier has over ninety four State County and city parks along with six hundred, eighty, three, some odd miles of shoreline. With twenty three of those providing swim beaches can you just talk about some of the different ways that families that come to the area can engage with the lake as far as places to stay and then Sir Things to do absolutely. Well, it is. It is that thirty eight, thousand Acre Lake. So there's a lot of room to spread out and according to statistics. The latest count we had, which this year will probably have more We have about twelve million visitors to the lake a year and put that in perspective the Magic Kingdom at Disneyworld has fourteen million a year. So it's a lot of folks coming around this lake, but because it's so large, you can still have a very special and private experience. When you come to visit here, we kind of say that the lake has to sort of personalities the spring and summer it's you know the. Riviera of boats and Jet Skis and wave runners, and all the beaching and all the activities that you would expect to find at the lake, and then in the fall and winter, it's a little more chill laid back guided fishing for Trophy Bass geocaching hiking biking some paddle sports still happening throughout the year But more like the passive recreation. All kind of activity said, there's definitely a lot of choices and and also George the only George State Park on Lake Lanier. Don. Carter State Park. Is a kind of a jewel that we have that sometimes gets missed by all the noise from other things to see and do a great park. Yeah. It is and five bucks for a car load for the whole day. You can't beat the value you get there. So we know camping is a popular activity on Lake Lanier can you tell us some of the more popular camp site locations? Or sure and especially twenty twenty camping has like had a huge moment. With the social distancing of society it turns out that camping is one of the best things you can do. To get away literally from everyone. So the late does have a very wide variety of camping from primitive hike in carry everything on your back like you're going to go on the Appalachian trail kind of very rustic. No amenities camping to the luxury RV resort at Margarita Ville that is like the super cable TV. Internet fully paved sites with you know all the super duper amenities you'd expect for the giant fifty, five feet. Buck motorcoach style. RV's but? For the average everyday family camper the the most popular places that we find our Don Carter State Park, which I mentioned, which has phenomenal RV camping sites, and then river forks park is kind of a hidden gem. It's actually run by hall county it's on the lake. Is. One of the only places that are open for camping twelve months of the year as well. So they have beautiful beach they have an event pavilion they Docs courtesy docks for boating, and so you can camp their rent a boat, the Marino bring the boat to the park for you and things like that. So it's a really nice spot to go, and then of course, the core has lots of camping as well, but it's very seasonal. So we know Lake Lanier islands. Destination for a while. Margarita, they'll take over the property. It's it seems to be more and more popular. I know going over I I like the difference you know like the change there are some of the family friendly activities for families at the property and I know that is also going to change seasonally as well. Yes. Yes it will and Lanier on's resort is still operated by the Williams family and Lanier neons, management, Margarita Ville came in. Now it's been two years ago almost three years ago as a operational partner. So there in the resort kind of operating within the bubble of the islands running the beach and waterpark and they have the. Land Shark Bar, and grill that's open year round that serves all kinds of food and drink on the beach, and then they do the harbor with Marina C- CAN store your. They are one of the new exciting things they've done. They're they're adding a bunch of dry stock stack storage for boats. So if you have a boat and you want to start there and dry stack, you can do that very soon there finishing up a new dry stack facility than they have, of course, the marina on the water where they have slips available that are covered in a gas stock and all that, and you can rent boats there. But the the islands itself I mean. It's almost fifty years that that it's been operating as a a a place for people to get away with sort of Atlanta's Hamptons We're only about forty five minutes from downtown. Atlanta, and we certainly are that beach and boating nation But at the resort, there's a luxuries lodging at legacy lodge they have villas at lake houses, and of course, the camping and the RV resort mentioned championship golf they have twelve holes that are on the water is one of the. Most scenic golf. This is in America and certainly very challenging as well because you're chipping your ball across the water about six times. So that's really tough but they're focused on total wellness and they have a lot of hiking trails and bike rental, and then the boating and the spa of course, and they do stand up paddle board. You can do Paddle Board Yoga on the lake and things like that. So there were really excited that they're getting very, very close to announcing a new hotel property that. Proposed for a while, so I would keep my eyes open for a news from the resort on that Margarita Villes been phenomenal partner with the resort and they've brought in, of course, the parrot head aesthetic lifestyle with a land art landing in Paradise Beach and all the fun that's goes along with that. But what's new for them as a global billion dollar brand? Is this family component, and so that's been an interesting evolution to watch them grow their brand and to be more surprisingly family friendly. So one of the ways they've done that is with with the water the beach waterpark park I mean it's naturally going to attract kids. So they have Georgia's largest wave pool, which is why ways, and then of course, the Paradise Beach and funds on which is good for toddlers, but they really amped it up in the off season with their snow island. Program, this account of started the the resort had gotten a little bit into winter where they have a huge light show the magical nights of lights that you've probably heard of but they add is sort of some snow elements and tried some things out. But Margarita came in, they just turned the volume up to eleven on that and bill this giant apparent mountain. It's the fastest snow tubing right in. North America that's. Huge snow play areas, they have a holiday village carnival, and so that runs actually from November through February. So even after the Christmas break in the New Year still through February, on the weekends, you can come out and do snow tubing and have snow playtime and things like that and enjoy surprisingly have a fun experience at the lake in the winter. So that's been a really great boom for us and what was an off-season time sure you even when it his seventy degrees then January. James. One of the greatest things about being part of this huge brand is they spared no expense in the equipment they acquired. So the snow machines they have if we have a heatwave in, January, they still are able to pump out. Enough snow to fill that in giant. Parrot Mountain it's insane and maybe they can open up the the wave pool in January who knows In summertime but. I know in summertime my my brother and sister-in-law have a boat and we've pulled up the marina there and you eat at. The restaurant and you go over to the beach area and there's beach music Jimmy, Buffett, and obviously other artists playing on they've got a big screen up there that you can kind of watch while you're just kinda chilling in the lake it's nice and. We had gone to the winner. The winner part. Maybe two or three years ago. So it was right before Margarita. Took over and we did a lot of the I guess they converted the water slides into. Yeah winter activities, but it'll be interesting to see what it's like. Now, that Margarita taken over that lots more snow for share. A lot of fun. Talking about Margarita Ville while ago you mentioned another hotel potentially. We know their own record as saying, they're going to do further development by can you give us any ideas of other activities? Yeah I mean as far as from the Margarita Ville brand and we only thing they have on the books right now that is. Currently, in development is this huge Redo of the camping and the RV parks. So they've spent a lot of money and effort and they went in to the campground that was on the resort that was really in bad need of re have, and they just scraped it down to the dirt and started over. So now it's the only campground, the light that has full hookup. So they have sewage hookups for the RV's they have. Fifty five foot and larger fully paved pull through sites for the big rigs and all the amenities that folks that travel in those kind of RV's would expect to find and that took the camping up like ten notches and they've incorporated all of the brand into the experience from when you check in to the RV part to the transportation down to land shark if you WanNa have dinner and things like that so. that's just think an idea of what example if what they can do when they decide to. You know put their brand into action as far as the new hotel piece that's actually coming from the Lanier islands and Virgil Williams. Management Side. Of the House. And it's been a project that they're working on with the state of Georgia. To, develop a new convention conference center and in the old where if you've been old-timer around here where panel the pownall stover's Tana was located. It was torn down in two thousand seven. So there's been this revolving dream of always putting something back there, and now they finally have something that really has teeth and it's coming along very nicely and I would anticipate there will be some announcements and things coming soon just was on a call today where they showed a three d rendered video of light the approach as you're driving up to the new property and it was amazing. So we're very excited now it remains to be seen at what level or if Margarita Ville will. Be Part of that venture or not but as right now they're not. But who knows you know by the time they get things shovels in the dirt that that could possibly change but right now that peace is still on the inside of the House will that is interesting because Margarita Ville does operate hotels. That's why I thought it would be a natural. Yeah they do they do and certainly there's been a lot of interest in I think from the Brand Maine all the way up to the top levels of the brand they're very keen on this property because. What they what they found in other markets is they have either the audience and no land. Or, the land and no audience, and so Lanier islands presents this perfect storm of. Develop property within a reasonable distance to a very large MSA of one of their most. Popular markets in the country for the brand. So it's the perfect of things, but you know some. Things get in the way sometimes as we know with. The economy and Things happening that. They're having to pace themselves and do what they can sue operate at the level they want to operate to maintain their brand standards and then but always before thinking and they're still plenty of room to do things out there. So very optimistic with what they'll they'll bring to the table. STUPID COVA DIS- keeps getting in the way of everything. Just needs to go away. For. Revering. will go away eventually. Yeah. So you mentioned land. Shark and that's I've eaten there. That's delicious place to eat we this is an important part of the show for Nanak because we love talking about restaurants and places. Same thing what are some great places to eat around LAKE LINEAR? We know Buford in Gainesville or the two closest cities but what are some good places? Well, there's literally So I will sell shamelessly self PLA promote our website. The are discover Lake Lanier Dot com website has got a section called eats. And within that section, we've divided things out and kind of. curated these lists. So we have our all star shifts and so an example is like. Antebellum in flowery branch. A the top one hundred restaurant north, America for six years. Nobody would know that just driving down the street or people would come could come to the lake. They might have a boat that they more on the late and still don't know that they're literally just a few miles away from tot one hundred restaurant in the country. And so are all star chefs features that and then waterfront dining we have the top ten locations for dining. So most of marinas have have restaurants and then they all kind of have their own vibe. So like for Brunch skogen. Is the place the gains Marina. On the hill overlooking the lake. They're basically the only place that serves breakfast the kind of that time of day. So you can kind of get that early morning before the craziness erupts in the summer on the water time and enjoy like salmon eggs benedict. That's Gogi is like the peak breakfast experience on the water Then the later it gets in the day and depending on your mood. Then there's all kinds of different vibes across the Board of the TIKI HUT at. Fort Royale at Pelican Pete, you can literally pull your Jetski up to the Bar is. A really hot place to go to see people and be seen and get a great cocktail and that kind of thing where like fish tails is more quietly in the back in a hidden little cove and it's kind of you know everybody's like we don't want to. We don't want to give it away too much because we don't want you to crowded. But they definitely as far as all the message boards and stuff online have the the best food across across the board. So say them. and. Then they have a sister restaurant called pigtails. That's they do. All right. Yes. Then thankfully that recently when we had our, you probably saw on youtube when the the water spout or whatever it was high winds that came through with the storm right through there in holiday marina and and it came right through Auckland and trees were down everywhere. But thankfully, the restaurant did not get a major damage and they were able to continue operating. What's the roads were cleared? There were that was a pretty scary moment recently. That was a freaky storm didn't in some places you barely even knew it was raining and that's that part it was just yeah just came on really fast ever decide if it was a hurricane hurricane a tornado or not it wasn't they cut I can't think of that. Now the the name, the weather phenomenon name, they call that it wasn't straight line winds, but it had its in the straight line wind family. So it wasn't a tornado, but it was something else that had hail and and that up to ninety five miles per hour winds there for a little bit. So it was pretty scary. Yeah. Things? Okay. Yeah I mean there's some major damage at the marinas but thankfully that all of that is insured and there was no loss of life or anything. So we're thankful for that. Yeah. So I want to ask you about festivals and I just want to say you know holidays at Lake. Lanier islands. Amazing I've been there many times with girls and the family, but even that n beyond in under the current situation this fall and even in two thousand, twenty, one, what kinds of festivals can can we look forward to events around Lake Lanier well. On the lake itself and I'm just kind of trying that because there's so many things happening as you know across the the community I mean Mitchell. Eraser Road Atlanta we have you know all the huge racist there doesn't really have a lot to do with the late but this one hundred plus thousand people that come here for those. But magical nights of lights obviously our big holiday event. But during that timeframe, there's also an annual boat parade like a lighted boat parade that is a coordinated. Linear Association and that sort of a low key local fun event that you can either participate in with your own boat or rent a boat decorated or just go to one of the parks and watch the boats as they go by usually terminates in the cove at Margarita Ville. So if you went to Land Shark and had dinner, you could see all the light boats coming in on that evening answer. That's a lot of fun. Year round a little insider is Wednesday evenings. The lanier sailing club has a regatta every Wednesday. So it's kind of Nice to go out to a park or in like a rented pontoon boat and just anchor in the south part of the lake and just watch the sailboats and sailing kind of gets an underrated promotion on the late. But we have actually some some pretty large sailboats one of. Our sailing charter companies. A boat that was in the America's Cup that they all the yeah. They sell it regularly on Lake Lanier. So It's kind of interesting that sailing culture here is pretty big. I'd also recommend Lake Lanier Olympic Park if you're not familiar is one of the last remaining venues from the nineteen, ninety, six games that still actively and use, and they have concerts, they have international sporting competitions going on and they have a recurring series. That's a food truck. Friday. That starts kind of March April if the weather's permitting and runs through October. And they have all the food truck five music and they're even right now in the age of Covid. They're still able to do it because it's outdoors on their big plaza area so they have Preserved tables, you can go to their website or call the park and reserve your own family table So you can get your food and have a private table to sit at and everything's all spaced out and all that. So it's a very good and safe for everybody to enjoy that event and they have probably the best sunset on the lake is at Olympic? Park? So yeah that's a good spot. Out of the Olympic Park I got to work there in ninety six. I got to work there and did, yeah yeah, I was. Able to be a translator out there and when I was there guess last last summer I think there's still a stage out there if I'm not mistaken, right? Yeah. Okay. In the two, thousand, two, I, think it was two, thousand and two they hosted the world the rowing championships for the world and when the when that competition came, they built this plaza because during the Olympics may recall that the public was across the water on the other side of the channel where the race course was opposite the tower or those grandstands were temporary floating things that disappeared when the games were over. So on the parkside where the the judging tower and finish line officials are was all media and athletes only one, two, thousand and two and they had the world championships they built A. Kind of a a plaza area that to do the metals and everything that had docks that could be moved and then seating for twenty five hundred people. So they have this area with a giant Plaza at top that now, they do events, weddings, concerts, all kinds of things happen out there all the time. Is still in use Oh. Yeah. Very much a neath. We just hosted It's been a couple of years now, but we had the dragon boat world championships here. And that's the first time. It's ever been in North America and it came to Gainesville Georgia from Italy. So you know. We still can draw them in from across the globe. Thanks. that. Well and you've you've tucked away some of these insider information and some of the other things you talked about, but we do like to give our listeners. As much insider information as possible. So what's a locals? Only insider information? You might be able to pass along about Lake Lanier. Of things I would say is weekdays are the best for boating areas. So if you want to really enjoy the lake. Come out like on a Monday. It's worth the time to take off work or maybe you're working a a an alternate work schedule now and you suddenly find yourself with Wednesday's off. The Weekday voting is like heaven on earth here. So that's the thing locals are like don't take away our weekdays, but I'll tell you from from a person who's owned a boat on the lake is a completely different experience to be out on the main channel of the lake by yourself is just so peaceful and wonderful and well worth the trip and then any other time I would say locals, no, go north of browns bridge. To Bob in an have a very different experience everything snouts at what Kinda depends on what you WANNA. Do I guess but for a fun family experience where you can take the kids and anchor a and get out and swim and the things like that and not be looking over your shoulder constantly for someone you know driving a speedboat that's GonNa go buy your kids to close go north browns bridge. That's where the locals are unless they're wanting to go to like a bar then they're going south of south of the bridge. So walsum. For more information on planning a trip to lake lanier visit discover Lake Lanier DOT com. Thanks Stacy for being on the show. We appreciate your time my pleasure anytime guys take care. We'll rob that was an interesting interview but since you and I are really both from this area around Lake Lanier you, you're not both know that we really just barely hit the tip of the iceberg here. There's so much to do but what were your personal takeaways from? Well, you know there is there's literally so much to do on the lake I know we didn't really talk about the fact you can rent a houseboat one of my family memories I rented a house boat and I actually propose to my wife in the middle of Lake Lanier on that houseboat so That's cool. We need all. It was pretty funny because I tried to make it a surprise. I'd come up with this elaborate story that I can't still can't believe my wife believe but I wasn't supposed to be on the boat. They were She was going to take it out with my inlaws in my parents to see if maybe we want to have the rehearsal dinner on I, don't know it was. Crazy story but then. Ruthie. I guess five at the time. She was with Tracy and they got on the boat and Ruthie saw me I was trying to get out of the way. She saw me at the end of the boat and took off. And Yeah. So Tracy then new I was on and so then I had to quit cover Oh, I got off early and was able to make it and We still protected the surprise but that was that was pretty cool. But yeah, there's there's a ton of things to do on the lake and. I think Margarita Ville taking over Lakeland rounds is only up the ante as far as the quality of things you can do I know that we've done the Christmas thing like we talked about at Lake Lanier islands. That's always that's always fun to do and again Margarita those just kind of up the ante on that as well. and then places to eat She mentioned fish tails fished houses so. That is a good restaurant Antebellum I. I've never eaten there and I've i. that's the place that I guess I need to put on my list of places to go. Yeah. This is one of those restaurants where you think upscale a little bit and. They. I'm assuming they had their own personal chef there and all, but you know you've got some really top quality meals there. Yeah and of course, it's going to cost a little more than go into. You know chain restaurant that we know but is extremely good food. Yeah and Skoge she mentioned skokie he's the cool thing about some of these places that are on the lake. If you're on the boat, you can call ahead and they'll bring the food down to you. So that's pretty cool as well. Even have to get off the boat to To have this good food and I mean you talking about Fried Seafood, which you know in the south is A. Is, a? Staple? The Fried Shrimp at Scoggins, they've got they call it skoge sauce. It's it's kind of a raw milad sauce kind of thing. But it made it so good it's. Good I remember one time we own and I really. Love this about the lake you know she was she was talking about this, but I just want to reiterate that. How cool it was we were on the lake once and we just pull up to a restaurant you dock and you just walk right up the doc you're sitting outside in a restaurant and you just get back on your boat leave. It was really cool. Great Act. And there. There are quite a few of those places around the lake. So I mean it's definitely worth going to the website discover lake, Lanier, dot com, and check in on all the different places to eat. Yeah. There's the RV Park that she talked about Marguerite Deville I it's just been completed and I was looking at having been over to yet, but it's it's pretty amazing for Harvey Party I mean you know we've we've talked about the fact that I'm not an RV`er that's not really in my blood but that kind of Oregon. You can sign me up for that all all day. I mean that it's got every facility that you could possibly imagine it's right on the lake. It's close to all the stuff at Marguerite Deville there. So Lots of stuff. Yeah, we're going to be doing our episode follow up pretty soon. We getting a little inside information on that. So that'll be something to get forward to. Yep and in October we're also planning to do stuff on the Youtube channel the that you guys want to check out it's You know just some ways to kick up your your campfire meals and other stuff that's still kind of in the work again, announce yet, but it's GonNa be cool.

"Happy New Year. Welcome to twenty twenty and a whole new is asthma was ranked in case. You've forgotten over the holidays and what's on my mind. This week is actually beautiful words from a note that we received from gisu about the impact that the broadcast is having people. It's so lovely and my irishness. Russian almost preventing me reading this to you but he wrote the episodes are not only beautiful but real. It's what this broken world needs eight to know. We're all little bit broken but it doesn't make us less perfect hell. It's actually what makes us diamonds. Those cuts give us our heart exteriors. Yes thank you. I'm what a privilege to be able to facilitate conversations and to give people the space to demonstrate that we're all a little bit broken okay and well Rhode Island's this leads me perfectly to this week's episode during which I sat down with the mother and daughter. Do behind the Mazzoni Zoning Fashion House. Just talk about what motivates them and how they describe not only themselves but each other. I definitely felt like I had to grow Out of the race only family name. You feel entangled as a branch of a tree you know. It's like a big not of like like Fashion Massoni. The family the place where we grow up we all have a very deep sense of belonging deep roots roots in this place. It's the first time we've had a duo of guests sitting in front of us and asthma and well. It's a conversation that you really really do not want to miss. Are you ready. Let's go we are in a studio in Milan and sitting either side of me. I'm nestled between two extraordinary women and this is the first time on the a show that we will be in conversation with two people. There'd be three voices but these. Two women are incredible for so many reasons they have forged a pathway in a very patriarchal to me and they have changed fashion as we know it. I'm nestled between Angela Margarita. MAZZONE ONI incredible women who. I am so thrilled that you said yes. When this came about? Thank you so much for being here thank you think it's a pleasure. The first question I would love WBT ask is. How do you describe yourselves personally and professionally you go I I go I how do I describe cried myself? Very simply has a woman as mother as a doctor as a grandma and Um um as a designer but more of the designer today even has a manager. What about so you Margaret? I think of myself as a professional and inbetween creative and end managerial type of vision. I wouldn't have been. I have been at a pure artist. I'm really interested interested in all the dynamics of marketing and merchandising and product so it's hard to categorize right always as and put yourself especially into taggers so I think I'm in between Personally I'm a mother a wife a daughter granddaughter but I think a few years ago when I left me Sony for the first time right left because they chose to put my life quality as Main priority priority in life and I'm still carrying on so I've accepted this role when understood. I thought it would make life better and not worse too so I would say that private life is still priority number one. How do you describe your mom? She's very motherly in general so she naturally tends to take charge and and also to take care Both in her private life and in her professional life. Yeah what do you think of. Margarita Migrate Data His name which is name of a flower in Italian and she's in full bloom and she's full of ideas. She's always been very very creative and she was very very very good writer. I always I'm always sorry that she emily seller of keep dead on one side. One day it's GonNa be good for you but she is very talented and she has is also for me when they ask me. We turn my quality said I don't know but I got is I can and see this is a a new C.. Deal in she C- and she understanding she understood this business. I am more like I do love to fix the closed. I I do to make clothes. Also but she has more the sense of the state. She's always she's like my mother. I always say the two of them will always get out of the house. theri precisely to care of looks from the shoe from head to toes in every detail. For every event I'm a bit more of Even some even Sunday brunch even Sunday brand for great is and we travel. It's me and my grandmother. Had A you travel now that that's another story that goes on in the family also with my other daughter Theresa because my Grita has described. She traveled with Larry on trial now vary on and then also so there is an emmy. We have another kind of body we have another volume right so he said yes. Of course she put little little shorts into these shirts in she's okay. Hey No we have to carry more stuff. I should be like you. Margarita Harry small things but I'm very much like I have no you're earring appoint for me Oni. I would be like what was it like growing up. I for you Angela. I grew up knowing of Mazzone as this establishment and institution. But what intrigues me. Most is you were both born into this. Did you know what it was now. And then Actually very different from me than my Rita own kid. Because I I grew vile the company was growing. My behrens founded the started this business in one thousand nine hundred eighty three when they married. I was born nine hundred fifty eight so when they had their first show nine hundred sixty five I was there I was there and I remember every single detail of Only shows that I've seen of all the people that I've met of all the world that I the fashion were which was very small ward at the time but I think there are no people of my age that have seen a show in Palazzo. PT Dancer. But I. I was there because my parents would take around like not to leave me home alone so I grew an I grew with the name also which is a different thing. I was not Angela me stony. You're just Angela. I was Angela yes and I know I was always very curious. And this is what it made my fortune in my the job because they never go to the archives. I remember every single detail. I ask things from the archives on that I show. You were still school-age excavator. Was I was nine. Nine hundred seventy seven years old. What was the conversation that happened in your classroom? Your parents were putting on this enormous fashion show time. I don't think that the big shows that would be shows. It was more presentations show. It was handled in a theater which is called Seattle Girolamo. I Milano which is which I thought when I enter turn. I thought he was a scholar later on when I into La Scala. I said I've been here now. It's a tiny tiny bury me right data and maybe it has ninety places. Fashion Industry was not the fashion industry that today so they were journalists from Milan. A you you have to consider the like in books per Terry was started in ninety if ya so it really was much smaller deal. Yeah when did did you first become aware of the enormity and the importance of the Oh later on when my kids were born with the name. MM We're not born. You gave us the name and then they were anyway they were might cheer. Were recognize of being my children. They have two names right but they had the father's name my name but anyway they were recognised being my children and I remember the day when they hit me. That was a special thing. You know that their job was people are looking up to them and they were. It was actually. I was in the car driving the back seat and I was entering my grandma's house which is right next to the company the factory tree because we have a factory which is quite rare in fashion. Nowadays I was like wow. They're famous. It's like a big deal you know 'cause of course. I had a very special upbringing. Where because we lived right next to the factory and they worked a lot my mom and my grandma? We hung out a lot. There and fashion shouldn't factory offers a lot of fun children activities from callers to papers to hide and seek no the pieces of fabric and to me. That was just normal. You know it wasn't something special and I remember when it hit me that it's Lake AAC special. You know the people we'd meet all that was mice coolant. And what inference me. But you had a nap. Yeah Jews like gifting gifting me vintage children closed from the sixties. When I was six or seven that was normality which is not that he was fanzine away or like jet-set necessarily? It definitely was a lot of creative stimulation. And did you ever feel like you had to grow into the Mazzoni name. I definitely felt like I had to grow out of the rezoning family name growing up like that. It's quite you feel entangled as a branch of a tree you know it's like a big naught tov like fashion Miss Oni. The family the place where we grow up we all have a very deep sense of belonging the Republicans in this place which is great. And it's what also saved me later on in life during my New York. Here's you know what having a lots to lose at home but at the time when I was finished high school at eighteen the only thing I wanted was like going into city. We'd like city to lights and life and also to be away. I guess from that Anderson who I was an individual so I studied philosophy and then acting which was very therapeutical reportable but looking back it was all need of introspection in figuring out that I could exist on my own and I could only come back. Concern started working with my mom when I was finally comfortable. And what did you learn about yourself. I never had expectations from from her. She was always. The Montessori kind of mom freedom was an essential value and what she gave me but I had the pressure from from my grandmother. Although she didn't Minett I was the eldest and I was a very good kid. She could take me on trips with her. You know just to hire to go to flea markets as I would never complain. Never Askar. She was there next to you and she would. She would study the sports news. News whose Day To be prepared to keep the conversation grandma and GRANDPA. I wanted to be the best general and in their eyes. And she says when Deja No. It's not that I want you to be. The best is just that you're the best. You're happy being this all roses under understand very strange because this this didn't happen with US kids. We were brought up. She was busier. Harry free be easier and I. I never felt the pressure. None of us felt the pressure. Brothers fell the pressure of coming into work in the factory. Instead I had my father who would usually say you know you go into something else so we can close factory can go and Actually close you would say I would put the bomb on this factor. My father didn't want it to have responsibility. Not right in his character in general for Hillary Rodham gave it was needed to be free totally. And when did you decide that this is what you wanted to do. Did you ever want to do anything else. Yes I wanted to stay was not a good student but I would have loved to study psychology. Always maybe for the need of Interest Reaction Action. I have baby wanted to be veterinarian. But I had I wanted to become a mother this for me. I was fifteen and I was saying. At the time she was same age fifteen. She was saying I'm going to study New York along the way I was saying myself. I'M GONNA gene. I'm going to have children and my mom almost fainted. She got pregnant. Yeah by twenty eight. I had my three kids so I was working in the company but just to get pocket money. I was doing the sales assisting my mom but never with a big passion. I only was driven for maternity and then every child headed to Greeley. Take time to be home with my kids and I remember when Margarita was may be seven or eight months one day my mom said by by the way. When did you to come back to work? And then I said Mum I always hear you saying that the only regret that you have is that you didn't have enough time for us so I think I'm going to stay home a little bit more. Then she didn't say anything. Yeah of course and then in between tween my kids. They wanted to do other things. Are you gonNA kindergarten. Can the play ground. When she was born I started to do a project of an organic chicken farm mm-hmm when I was pregnant with my son Francesco and then when I was pregnant of days I had to kind of drawer I said No? I'm not going to because I was working in an outright then I said no no no no I went to my head I remember. I said I'M NOT GONNA work in this factory and more. This is not my job. I'm going to be any sit for would you like to do and I said I would like to design children close. This is of course everything go and then I said my design jewelry and then you he said you know if you have any project. Think about this company like An umbrella and you can have your project under this umbrella now. There's no need for for you to work with your mom every single day. Blink didn't head listening. No no no. She knows because it's not. It's not a purse. He and the student that I needed to take my own independence. Exactly responder and you you act towards your mom or your kid or your. Even if it's not a kid adult children very different way that you would react to the two other people that work with you. It's at the time that is sometimes challenging and difficult to deal with. It's this ability to have such a strong support network but also your patient shouldn't is often quite less with those most likely. So it's good when you're when you can structure the you trust each other. You know like doc I think taste wise inside wise. We really trust each other. We know we share and aesthetic but on the other hand you know give the responsibility separately. Yeah but then then was very curious. was that okay. So I started to do project and I started to follow licensee from Sony and I realized I knew that I knew the label I could do that Baton in fact that said yes but I would like to work fashion to do fashion in. I ask if the family agreed that it was doing my own project. The angelini Sony Line and we started to be solid sensing and they could see that. My mom was very impressed. By the way that I was handling everything from beginning to the end to the show to make whatever whatever I was following the full like if I knew if done it forever and then after two three season I started eating pattern here little pattern there and tonight the Ford show after the fourth my mom came the she said that you love the show and she said have you ever thought of doing the mainline and I said no because that was her job and she said I think you should. Because what you're doing. It's what I would like me to be today. I have many things they want to do. And basically she gave me her job she led her job in my hand. I took me like Three or four season. I I started to do the editing. For the show collection. I started taking care of the advertising and then after three or four season I was out on a catalog on my own and then my right then was always taking care of the pattern and my dad said to me. I'm at your service. You know what I'm good at. Just ask what you need. But I think it's amazing zing in many ways because nothing means more to me than sincere praise from my parents. They are so supportive but they are probably into of the few people in the world who will tell me what they really think and I think that idea of how did you feel in that moment when your mother said to you. This is what the future of this family family in this company number two. I didn't when I when I took charge a DNA me say because people would say to to me. Oh did I hit a lot of courage. And you'll have a discussion about courage. What courage means when you don't know exactly where you going easy to choice? So are you just unconscious. And you go in for listening but DNA infect regulator said. I take responsibility. I take charge. I take responsibility and do you think that's because your vision was to be a mother so early on that you already had many of those skills. I don't know I think that the fact of being a mother very young. Open me up to the world. I was introverted as a character. And since that I think that that's slow love that you can retain the end. It goes all ron it more after the break. I don't know about you but I love shoes and when I find a great pair of shoes I have to have them particularly when there were my size. That's why I'm so excited about my new find. rotties they are making looking stylish shoes for women and girls out of recycled plastic water bottles.

What have been the big changes that you have experienced my mom? She was showing something very shearing Lura. And all of a sudden she realized that the underway way off the girl was still sixty underwear very heavy white And then she said to the girl ticket update to go Bryan even not take off the Bra and then it was a huge scandal and then they said scandal at that so pt me sunny advantage. Threes yours but yeah but then but then two months later seller on presented the new-look. Yes moment in. Hey so and so. That's the story in an ensuing when they did the first show. Let's say the first Milan show. It's like if they open Milan fashion week. The crowd the crown. The I don't know maybe ninety people in that crowd you had old the top the booty you can stay American store all the president in the press that counted. Can you believe that Today with a thousand year lease there is not enough. No what been the changes that you've experienced since you've been part and now at the helm Definitely it was nought as viral and Present as that is today. It was much more niche. It was much more well. The shows were already big. When I was young it was less personal? Not Everybody should adhere almost everyone in those years so you just change rooms and different designer was there but it was for people who work in fashion and it was not broad. Now it's broad and it's through social media and through. Everyone has a little piece of fashion bits in them in their life. Not only close images and an opinion about it but what and I realized that's really changed. Why looking back at the archives for my new project is really? How fashion was the fun and light at the beginning of the day? The shows they were doing it was like why. Not You know so a show on inflatables boozing a swimming pool a show where the Fontana would your cat the warden modest amount and this is what I really realize realize that it's lacking. There's a lot of pretentiousness today when there is no need for it and doesn't add anything to the brand. So Oh that's really what I would like to try to go back to. I was at your show during Milan fashion week. And I think it's my third if not fourth mazzone show one of the things that I'm always really moved by is genuine and sincere and tangible tangible. Love that audience has not only for Zony the brand but Mazzoni the family. I've is sitting around some incredibly important. Horton an influential editors and everybody said you know there is just such a connection to you both people to your mum into your whole family y after sixty years over sixty years. Do you think that there is still such a love from his own. Why do you think it's still matters? Nice to people but I think when you have something when you communicate something that is actually real people really perceive that and that's when something it's successful from a communication point of view and we've been dissenter as well as a family of communication but it's true that's a Foxton. I think that's part of the sympathy and we've been independent for a long time and we've worked outside the city and I think that also put us a bit ebbing in the countryside. Put us a bit on the side of the fashion feuds and we never had any enemies or we're we're friends with all the other designers full. My parents were the first generation they were well old designer rations. There were like ready first first generation. That was that was my parents but Utah Mundell Volterra. Beanie was the point. Everybody else came later right. There's unusual butane shelter since last night about the beginning of support there. And there were feuds already on the first Albanian cleats. It's yeah and I think some of the reason why people have such a love for the brand is because there's a personal connection. We feel like we know you. We feel like we know. Oh your family but that ever a challenge. How many let me read you read common saying I want to be adopted? Well if you're submitting an taking applications lie I can give you the former before. Oh you leave you know. You never lied to give out everything. And that's the way it is and it's easy to portray because because it's real but on the other hand it's not intrusive and then plus they had the real respect for What my parents invented? They invented a style which is very rare infection and still so unique. Yeah and also that you find families. Emily's did the tragedy Sony Generation.

What do you both want your legacy to be to relieve the values of the family into live the value of the company for sure to the next generation? That's that's what I worked for two those years in the past years. I want it because they knew that. The third generation wanted really had a passionate and affection affection for this company which is more than a company. It's it's what the family and I wanted to leave them. This company for them to enjoy to work there or to be back in good health. So that's what I've done to try to fix. I'm a fixer. I`Ma Fixer. I try to fix things and make them better in my way for what I think. It's better of course I knew that I was the generation in between in the middle and I had this duty to believe them something In good health to this third and maybe generation two kids to feel totally free. You know when you it's it's always difficult to balance now when you have something like that. It's great but then you're never totally free all doing not. I'm doing my job.

Fall Cocktails, Winter Protection and Growing Fig Trees

"This is Plant Rama with Ellen Sako said myself Seattle for Nari. It's the podcast for everyone who has ever grown eating or wondered about plants plants. Today we're talking about fall cocktails winter protection and rowing fig trees. We're going to start yard out today with what's for dinner and it's really what's before dinner because we are starting out with the time no cocktail hour so Ellen Ellen. What is your favorite autumnal cocktail. I'm so glad you asked sale because this time of year the thing I liked to serve most is a frozen persimmon Margarita is it's got this glorious orange color which by the way if you're having in a Halloween party is a wonderful thing to serve because no one's going to know what it is and what you do is you make it with pureed frozen rose in persimmon flesh which is bright orange and it's thick so it's just like if you got a frozen. Margarita in a restaurant it would be that nice thick consistency consistency you do the same thing with the persimmon flesh and it is absolutely delicious. It brings some freeness to the to the Tequila and the lime juice in the Cointreau at just adds a whole layer of flavor and complexity and I just love it. Let me ask you this. Can you use any persimmon. I know that there are different MM types. There are different types of persimmon. My favorite is to use the native American persimmon. which is the one that that you don't ever pick off the tree because if you have to pick it it's it's not ripe enough? You wait until it. It falls off the tree and it looks like a gooky mess but that's when it's at its most delicious. There's two kinds of Asian persimmons that you'll often find a grocery. It's restore. There's Persimmons which are crisp and you bite into them like an apple and then there's the cocky that's k. k. i. Persimmons and those maybe a little bit firm in the grocery store but you want to wait and let them soften up on your counter until their consistency is similar color to that of like an overripe banana the cocky persimmons are the one that you would want to use in this cocktail because you're going to need to cut that in half scoop out the flesh lesch remove the seeds and then either puree that flesh in a food mill or a food processor or a blender. Put that in the freezer and that's what what you're gonNA use as the base of your Margarita and we can post a recipe and a photo on the show page if you like well. I think that that sounds Great Ellen and I am so glad that you didn't respond to your favorite. Fall cocktail had something to do with Pumpkin Spice now. We should remind people to that there. Are you know you could make a cocktail out of a lot of fruits and at this time of Year of course parts if you don't have access to persimmons perhaps people could do something with Apple's. What would you suggest in terms of an apple cocktail okay. Here's the thing I think I think it was Jack Daniels. Somebody stole my brilliant idea because a full cocktail I love has been for quite some time a bourbon urban and crab apple cocktail and they're some big whiskey company now that sells a whiskey that's flavored with apples and I can't blame them. It's a delicious combination Asian. So if you don't have crab apples at your house you can still make this cocktail with apples that you buy at the farmer's market but gopher the hardest apple's you can find what you're going to do is juice them and then make a syrup out of them and combine that with Bourbon and Bourbon has a natural sweetness to it that really balances the tart apples very nicely now. I'm not normally a bourbon drinker but that sounds like a great great combination and and and I remember when we had our last cocktail event you had a bourbon crab apple cocktail and I thought it was delicious so we'll put a recipe for the Apple Syrup on the show notes along with a picture of the persimmon cocktail right. Here's to fall aw Seattle for our insider information section. Today we're GONNA talk about out winter protection and whether wrapping a Shrub or a tree keeps it warm and really protects it over a cold winter and this is something that I get asked about wow all the time. I don't know if you do but I bet being on the Cape you do and if you don't get asked about it you probably drive a long road and see all sorts of trees wrapped in Burlap apper covered with signboards and all that kind of stuff so do you recommend to your clients that they give some kind of winter protection to their trees and shrubs well well it. It depends first of all in general. I feel like there are so many plants that we can put in the guard hard yes that don't need to be upholstered every fall in order to bring them to the winter that I certainly would rather plant plant those and not have to deal with rapping anything or I agree erecting windbreak so that's number one but there are some people who have a plant that is in perhaps an exposed location and they want to do something to protect it but but here's what I think is important for people to understand one type of winter protection is putting some steaks close close to a plant but not right next door on the plant and wrapping Berle Apple as a windbreak. That's one type of winter pretension. Okay A and I think it's can be marginally effective but if you have a plant that's really vulnerable. It's probably not going to make the difference between life and death. Another type of winter protection is erecting that same steak and Burlap to prevent road in salt well. That's what I was just going to ask you about. Would it be an effective bit because oftentimes you'll see people who have large RV right by the road as sort of a living fence and and they put up the burlap and I'm thinking that's to protect the foliage from getting burned by the salt that spread that's right that's right but it's far more effective to do it with steaks steaks and the the burlap a few inches away from the plant than it is to wrap the plant itself like a mummy yeah because because sometimes that contact of burlap in close contact with the foliage can actually dry foliage out so well. Can you be a wick for moisture away from the plant which you don't want and that's the problem. I have with a lot of the online instructions that you find for for wrapping the trees for winter protection. They did not say they did not caution. People not to let the cloth the burlap touched the greenery and I think that's it's an essential point. If you're going to try this for winter protection you cannot have that cloth touched the greenery because a if the salty solution Russian gets on the cloth while it's going right onto the greenery that's going to be not be a barrier at all and second be as you just mentioned any moisture in the leaves will wick out to the burlap and that causes a different kind of winterburn which is exactly what you're trying to prevent so if you if you are going to put up a burlap barrier as I mentioned mentioned make sure those steaks are a distance away from the tree so that that burlap is not touching the foliage. Here's the other thing about burlap versus other other cloth or other materials. I Have Seen Ellen people trying to use tarps as winter protection and they don't breathe leave now and I remember seeing one time a homeowner had a whole tarp put around a wooden uh-huh framework around a fairly large holly and when they took it off in March the Hollywood's dead because it had been because picture the winter sun in February gets warm and so if you have some sort of material that's not breathing. That's actually going to heat up up in there to be too hot and your plant is going to suffer for the opposite reason not too cold to hot so that's another thing got to remember now. Here's something that I want to mention Ellen. which is that covering? A plant with fabric of any sort art is not necessarily going to keep the plant warmer people often think that it's sort of like a down blanket you know that we wrap ourselves in down blanket and we stay warmer right but we are generating heat our bodies generate heat eight and so the down just traps our heat in those airspaces and that's why we stay warm most plants the majority orgy of plants are not generating heat and so people need to realize that that the protection is more about about stopping the wind or keeping a plant at a constant temperature not about keeping the plant warm there is one other kind of winter protection that I see people using and that is sometimes people will erect a wooden a frame signboard over a tree or shrub especially if that tree or Shrub is planted under an eve where snow might it slide off of a sharply pitched roof and sort of split that shrub open now I would say don't don't plant your tree or shrub there in the first place because that's just asking for trouble but if you moved into a house and there's a Nice shrub border someplace and and you find the snow falling off that what is a way to protect your shrub from splitting open by a large load of falling snow. I actually had on that Ellen I've done because because I have a variegated boxwood and it's in the exact right place and I love it there and it wouldn't be a problem if my husband didn't insist on shoveling that part of this roof every year so yeah and so he's shovels because this is kind of a flattish roof and he shoveled it off and where busy put the snow right on top of that variegated boxwood and so I said look if you're going to insist on putting the snow on top of this shrub you have to build a teepee apply. Would you know teepee to protect the darn thing so that it can still get some air movement and still get some light but be be protected from the snow that you're shoveling on top of it so that's what we do so how much space. I'm just trying to give people an idea of how much larger that wouldn't be should be you because you're mentioned of air circulation and light is important so obviously you don't. WanNa really tight over the shroud. That's right. It's got to be I would say at least the the signboard thing has it's got to be at least a foot taller then you're plant because the very top the peak of course where the two boards come together. It's a very narrow all part and to be able to be accommodated under that so yeah so just you know as a general rule. It's got to be a foot or more taller and we have ours up on kind of little feet so it gets air circulation underneath as well. That's a good idea basically just a physical barrier and I'll I'll see if I have a picture of it to put up on our show notes so basically think about a do really want to protect a plant is this plant so valuable that it requires jumping through hoops every year and if so that's fine but be sure that the type of protection that you are using allows for air circulation and airspace and that it isn't going to either smothered the plant or wick moisture took away and other than that. I'd say you know see how your plants do and those that make it wonderful and if the plant plant is vulnerable. Maybe that's not the right plant for that Location Ellen. At this time of Year I love picking fresh fix and we have a couple the different types of things but the most productive victory we have is a brown Turkey fig but it is not growing in the ground and so I I want to talk a little bit about how people no matter where they live can pick fresh figs in the late summer and the fall and so that's a good topic. I think most people love the idea of picking fresh figs so let's let's get into it. Yeah well I think in general Enron people think of fig trees as being plants for warmer areas maybe a USDA zone seven or eight but there's there's two ways to go about this aren't there you could plant a very hardy species like the Chicago fig. That's hard his own five. There's a problem here okay because a fake can be hardy in a location but not be hardy enough to produce figs and Chicago Hardy ready for me is one of those plants. I live in a warm zone six. I've planted in a very sheltered sunny spot Chicago hearty fig it made it reliably viably through every winter but every winter it would die to the ground and then come back from the ground and and because it I had to come back from the ground and grow about four feet tall before it started to make figs yes it would start to make figs but it only started started to make figs in October and so of course they weren't rarely large enough to be ripe by the time we had hard frost so are you you telling me that the Chicago figures only route hardy to zone five. It's not that I can only speak from my own experience and for my experience. That was true true. It never produced figs and after five years you know I said to my husband if it's not gonNa make fruit what's the point you know so we we. We dug it up and said goodbye. That's tough love Seattle but I agree with you and I don't know if I were listeners understand the difference between something being route hardy coming coming back from its roots every year and something that's not route hardy and I have just checked and in fact it is route hardy to twenty below zero but the stems are only hardy to ten him above zero so for somebody like you or somebody like me that is not going to be a choice. That's going to work unless you live someplace where they very long growing season so if you lived in zone six that had a growing season that extended through to maybe just after Thanksgiving you might get fruit but but for most of us that probably means we're going to not be able to grow the Chicago so don't be seduced by that zone five label but that doesn't mean that you can't grow fix now of course there's always somebody who brings up the fact that my Italian grandfather buried his fig every year. I have heard that story so many times I I have never actually met a living breathing human being who has every year dug a trench bent. The tree down buried it in the ground. I've never met anyone who's actually done that. I've heard the stories too but I haven't ever seen it done. I view it with a little grain of skepticism. I also know people though who build a cage around their fig tree every year and fill that cage with Straw or Hay and then put a tarp over the top to keep the rain out so that it doesn't stay too wet that is a tricky way to protect a fig because if if if you live in a very humid climate as I do maybe you could get away with that and Santa Fe but where I live it's very humid climate and these these are not humidity loving plants and they don't like to be wet around them all winter long and so you know I found that by building protection and leaving it outside I within faced with Rodney dieback in spring rather than protected steps so instead of doing that you have come up with another solution and now you're growing your fig in a container. That's right. We have figs in pots. We pull hold them into an unheated garage but the garage being an attached garage does not go much below say thirty nine forty degrees in the winter. It does not go below freezing in my garage in the winter. Even if it's below zero outside so those trees at that point are dormant. They have dropped their leaves. You've and they are just hang out in the garage all winter long. If the soil feels dry I water it but otherwise is I really don't keep it wet weight. I'm GONNA stop you. When when do you bring it in you. Let the leaves fall off while the FIG is still outside. Eve harvested your fruit. What do you bring it in right away or do you let the leaves fall off and then bring it in neither actually because what the key is you want to bring it in before hard hard frost okay so we leave it outside as long as possible when it gets to the point where the nighttime temperatures are going into the forties awardees. Sometimes the leaves are gone. Sometimes they're not if if they're not the leaves soon as the plant gets into the the dark garage the leaves all turn yellow and fall off all over the floor and the garage and the interesting thing about this fig ellen is the brown Turkey in particular is that in the I would say late winter late February. It senses that the days are getting longer and it starts to break dormancy in the garage not a problem. You just let it do that. Not only does it break dormancy but it starts producing fix wow that early out that adderley it produces two things one early and then one lane and the early crop gets like shrivels up and aborts and falls falls off and then it does the second crop sometimes it shrivels up and falls off. Sometimes we actually get ripe breaks out of it. It completely depends on the spring weather. Now you had said earlier that while the figures in your garage if the soil is dry you water it and my question is do you treat it like a house plant. You know you stick your finger. Anger down into the soil and if it's dry a couple inches down you water it. Do you water it thoroughly until water. Comes out the bottom or you giving just a little bit of water to tide it over. I I water. It probably a medium amount not so much. I don't really wrench it okay but I do give it enough water to tide it over. I I use both the look of the soil and the feel of the soil to guide me if the soil looks dry if it's pulled away from the edges of the pot then I will give enough water so that the water probably starts to come out of the bottom but I don't have a lot of water collecting in a saucer. You never want to leave these plants sitting adding in standing water when there are in their dormant period well as you mentioned earlier. These are not plants that require a lot of moisture a high humidity so yes and let's avoid it sitting in water for sure and then what I do in the spring is we then as it gets close to spring and we no longer have to have both cars the garage because it's snowing we will move those fig trees close to the garage doors and when there's a day that's above fifty degrees and sunny. We'll open the garage doors for a couple of hours and let the plants get some sun and then closed them after a couple of hours and by doing that over over the months of say April and May then by the time that it is warm enough to bring those victories outside the the leaves that have developed in the garage have had some experience with real sunlight and so they don't get sunburnt and not have been hardened off ah that's right now if you if somebody can't do that what they can do is just pull that tree outside the leaves will get sunburned. They'll fall off and then the plant will make a whole new set of leave so it will recover nicely even if you can't harden it off by introducing it to sunlight gradually well well if any of our listeners are wild for figs and think that this is something they might want to try. We have a friend and colleague who has written a book talk about this. Don't we yes. He calls himself a fig pig so stephen biggs is a fig pig. I'm not insulting him by calling him that because that's what he calls himself and he has written a book called grow figs where you think you can't and if anybody is an authority on growing figs for you can't grow them. It's him because he lives in Canada. Yes he does where it's much colder than either Cape Cod or Santa Fe New Mexico. That's right so he has a website. Stephen bigs dot what's a and you can go there and click on his books tab and find his book there and order it directly from him and I think you can find it. Other places online signed as well but stephen bigs grow figs where you think you can't. He's got all kinds of methods all kinds of instructions in there for all different types absorb fixed so do check that out if you are a fig pig to co when I drive down the road this time of year and I I look around almost every replace I look I see a beautiful yellow flower that is much maligned misunderstood and should be greatly appreciated do do you appreciate Goldenrod because I love that plant. I love Goldenrod. I love every form I even love the most weedy formed to take over my garden and and I let a patch of that weedy form stay I do try and keep it in bounds there are so many varieties goldenrod and some of them are are big and Puffy and bright golden yellow and some of them are thin and delicate and are just adding a little bit of fall fall excitement in on every roadside practically in the country so I do love Goldenrod but you're right. It's much maligned. People think that Goldenrod in Rod is ragweed and it's not it is not very very very few people are actually allergic to Goldenrod but it does flower are at the same time that ragweed flowers and so people blame it on the Goldenrod. It's not the golden rods fault right now. The botanic name name for Goldenrod is Sola Dago and this means to make coal or he'll yes but in fact goldenrod is sometimes names used to treat ragweed pollen allergies. It has a long history of many traditional medical uses and it's fun to kind of check that it out people make tea out of the flowers and as I say it's been used traditionally for a wide variety of medical reason so I I love the fact that here this poor plant who has a name which means to make whole trial is often blamed for making people miserable and that's too bad it it is it's just not fair to the poor goldenrod okay so this is. I know we were both saying Oh. This is so exciting. There's so many interesting things about Goldenrod. This is the thing that I had I had no idea about. I'm sure you know this now but Thomas Edison made tires for his model model t Ford that had been gifted to him by Henry Ford with rubber made from the Goldenrod plant. Now is that cool or what it is cool in fact. They bred a particular. Yes he sees of Goldenrod that was very high in in Milky Thick Sap uh-huh and he produced Edison produced a gigantic strain of the plant that grew twelve and could be harvested in a single season. He's had a what happened to this. Why is this disappeared well. I'll tell you what happened. Do you know what happened. No are you so the normal only certain species of goldenrod contain this robbery latex about seven percent and this giant plant that he hybridize had about twelve percent in addition to being twelve up twelve feet tall but the rubber was very tacky and sticky it never could really be hardened and they were working on it during World War Two during during the war when they didn't have as much access to the tropical latex and continue they continued working on it actually with Henry Ford and George George Washington carver working on this project together after the war but as promising as it was and as interesting as it is the rubber it never was actually highly usable and I don't think anybody's working on it today. What a great sustainable project that would be well no and I understand that their work at that time led to the development of the production of several other synthetic products so cool it was it was one of those great instances of people saying what Jeff going down the road without expectations about what was going to happen happen and they may not have gotten the effect that they wanted to that led to other thing the other thing that Goldenrod is traditionally been used for Ellen is the flowers have been used to make a yellow dye and what I love about Goldenrod. Is Let's use it to make any bouquet looked better today. Instead of answering a listener's question were going join to tell you about something do that. We have going on. I'm excited L. and I am too. I think this is GonNa be really fun and it's a great way for us to connect it with our listeners very directly. We have a new segment that we are planning actually not a segment of the regular podcast but we're going to release these as bonus episodes toads and they are plante nine one one. What is your emergency. This is going to be all about listener listener questions examples of when horticulture turns to horror culture somebody somebody said to US Ellen that Oh oh plant Rama is turning to plant trauma. Yes that's exactly what it's doing think the worst case scenario handbook but for your or garden what we want you to do is to send us your problems your questions as an MP three record them on your phone and send us the MP three and we will use that recording and answer your question with a short video podcast cost for all the world to share so we'll help you and any other listener that might have the same problem now. I think in order to make it even more appealing for people people descended an MP three because it's you know requires an extra step other than just sitting down and writing an email. Let's face it in order to make this a little more appealing. Were we're offering that anybody who sends in an MP THREE OF THEIR PLAN EMERGENCY TO PLANT RAMA AT G mail dot com between now at the end of September and November first. We're going to be entering everybody into a drawing and we will pick a name out of a hat on November. Remember I and that person will get a free copy of one of our box and Allen.

Find Friends who talk about money from John Hancock. Where ever you get your podcasts. To Fox Sports Radio To the lead is the Jamal Adams trade. It says a lot about the jets and the precious Sam Darnold. It says a lot about Seattle and a lot about the NFL itself. Yeah went down Saturday afternoon. It was a blockbuster Jamal Adams the all pro safety from the new. York jets. He gets dealt with a fourth round. Pick in twenty, twenty two to the Seattle Seahawks for two first round picks a third and safety Bradley McDougal, and here's the thing we start every story that we can. At least we mostly do. With, what is the Vegas reaction to the store? So Defensive Back yes so Seattle. Season Win number has gone up from nine point three season winds to nine point five Rj, but Oh, my employees and we've got a lot of points, so try to make that understandable for your dad. Let's say they should win. Just about two tenths more of from nine point three nine point five is to Tan's. Hold on. Let me see here. Yeah Yeah. I! Think you're right. Thank you for making it easy to understand. So. How many points does it take in a season to increase? Let's say by a half a game, so remember sixteen games in the NFL season. So, let's use an example an average team. You would expect to win eight right now. Dallas cowboys, that's an interesting team. How many are they expected to win? Then is the difference between a purely average team. By definition eight and the cowboys is to wins. Now point to but two so mathematically we typically look at the value players by how many points are worth per game, so let's a players were the half a point so typically if they'd be laying, let's say the team six. That player added six and a half a half a point. So how much do you think atoms is worth half a point so a half a point? Sixteen Times is eight points, so you're saying eight points is about point two wins. Yes, see now, thank God. You get to be fans. They don't have to be with all the time with this kind of thinking, but it's good. It's accurate so a half a point game. How many players in the NFL and there's different assessments of this but your? Assessment how many players in the NFL were point more? Hundred name Oh in right so about three about three per team three or so okay, so the theory is Seattle. Just added you know one of the hundred players in the NFL, so Jonas as a fan and we're straight OUT OF VEGAS JONAS IN LA. How good is the simple question? How do you think small Adams is? He's a top two or three players position. At safety okay. Let's talk about that. Oh, go ahead, and then no, no I just I think he's he's. He's a great player, but it to me it comes down to the value of safety overall in the NFL where it falls in the landscape of the League. Now that's interesting because there's certain positions that are just harder to fill, and usually that's correlated to the physical skills are very. Demanding whereas if if anyone can do it. It's just a matter of how good if anyone physically let's say can do it or the universe of people who potentially could do his vast. You'RE GONNA. Get surprises, left and right. But if you got something where you've got to be seven foot tall, let's use a extreme example. You'RE NOT GONNA. Have many surprises because you know what? All the people that's ever going to do are all going to be talked to. Someone walks in at five eleven, even trying to say your six and a quarter sound that it won't work even with the hair so. I believe those positions are quarterback. Where you know it's hard in all. You gotta ask yourself is. How often is there a good quarterback available? On by free agency, almost, never. How often is a good left? Tackle available sometimes but. How about a rush and not often right and. Safety. You see good safeties all the time. There was a what collins out of giants right was. Considered one of the best. It feels like that safety typically. Is a position. You can buy for reasonable price. Now. Here's the irony of this, and here's what makes it in my opinion. Not Great for Seattle. The irony is. that. I'm not sure. How great is? Now I know that a lot of people believe. Hey, he's one of the best at his position. Well, let's look at some stats, so if you look at the jets last year. which advanced metric? Their defense against the run was the second best in the NFL their defense against the past. Pass was eighteenth Bassa below average against the past. So now you might say well. What about Adam's? Adam's is maybe the best safety when it comes to defending the run. steelers used to play something called the big nickel so the big nickel. The idea is you've got to safety. Who effectively could be a linebacker? And and if you actually look at the number of plays that Adams lined up at safety either strong or free safety, and then look at the plays that he lined up at another position, which was either D. at rush, end or linebacker in his career, he's had more plays not at safety by just a Smidge as a forty nine percent at safety fifty-one, not at safety. Now, you might remember Arizona drafted a Guy Isaiah. Simmons the talk was Oh those two ways to look at it. He is super super flexible. He can play multiple positions. He's a hybrid. There's another word for that twitter. Twitter is they don't have a position they can't. Say to on the wire Omar once said to stringer. You're afraid you're not smart enough for them out there, but not hard enough for us in here. Kinda man without a country. He called it. There's a lot of athletes and the difference between a guy that can do everything. Quote Unquote and nothing. Is Small. And really all the twins that's ever been drafted. The theory was he can do both. or he can't do either. The question is we know right now. We know for a fact that atoms can play really well against the run. But, he only defended. How many passes Fez would you guess? He defended against whereas he stopped the patch. You know broke break-up. However, they define the NFL. How many would you guess Adams defended last year thirty. Seven passes the foul here. Now, just to give credit where credit's due is the leading safety in the league had only fifteen, so obviously the definition by the NFL was TA. You know it's a tough threshold. But when you're supposed to be one of the best. Your defense is below average against the pass. And you are less than half as many defended passes. As the best safety against the pass. Tells me. There might be an issue here and Mike Lombardi. He's been talking about this that. Against a team that schemes Kinda dumb that that doesn't see limitations Adams is going wreck havoc and you had a lot of big splash plays. which is you know the idea of you know interceptions strip sach, you know he's on the highlight reel lot. The question is Oh is exploitable because of his limitation against the past. And what does that do with age? As as a guy gets older. If you're already having a little trouble, defending would happen. Troy with the steelers Troy, as I call them literally went from being one of the best players in the NFL two out of the League, like in eighteen months at a certain because he was a big nickel to go down, he could tackle. We jump over line and he was amazing because when he was younger, he could defend to and get the strip sacks to solve it i. mean amazing. Yeah, so it strikes me that there's questions about Adams, but what makes me feel good if you're an addams guy. is very similar to what Seattle likes to Ryan, so if you think about p Carol, there's one safety over the top and then other safety's kind of a rover doing all the advanced things. Kam Chancellor Right was the guy that was there before, and he's been just Craven Carol. Another Kam Chancellor this might be the one spa. Adams can shine the most in. Obviously, that's something P. Cara believes because by all accounts. He paid more than you would expect if I would have said is. Atoms trade happened. If I would say. What do you think the terms are before you found out I'm guessing these terms exceeded I would yeah it no doubt about it. I would have said they would have gotten if they had gotten a first in. Say A fourth Okay? Yeah, that seems reasonable because most half of what they got. Four and because he was on the trade, there were discussions last year in one of the reports. The Dallas, cowboys called the jets, and they were offering a first and third, and so it didn't get done, and then he's been talking and talking and talking so from my vantage point I kept thinking that his value was going down because it was so obvious, we're going to have to trade him especially, after went out and ripped the head coach, and the G. M. in. In the most recent article in the New York Daily News and the fact that they turn that into two number ones and got a safety back in return. McDougal's a pretty good players. Well, too. He's he's not just some scrub that they just picked up off the waiver wire. The fact that they got all that in return I would feel good if I'm the jets. No doubt no doubt.

If they don't sign Adams when he wants to be signed. This is a terrible deal I think terrible Jonas thinking about this in a different way I cause me to pause and say you know if he was the type of guy that would grin and bear it. I could see what he San. You get three years one great year pricewise, if you're Seattle one not so great and one the the tag your. Wouldn't it be great, but you wouldn't have to make a long term commitment. Now I don't think that's what's going to happen, but it Kinda shows you something. WHO's making the decisions and what are their interests? My understanding is peak herald. The Guy Usually head coach isn't. would. You agree with that in Seattle? He's got strong voice in the room. Yeah, I would agree with that. Okay? How long's peak? Carol Gun coach? Had over under. If if you gave me and a half years. Under five. You'd say yeah. I'd say overrun us, three and a half, and I got a little extra on the onder. Just a SMIDGE. What what would you think? Sixty seven. I think he's older than that. He's a great great looking for his age. But Joan? My he just seems like A. He just seems like type almost lake. Is Sixty eight right now, but September fifteenth. He turns sixty nine. So I mean couple years three four, the mouse. You think you never know he is A. Young. But. He does seem like a high strays. GOT THAT RED FACE? Sometimes he seems high stress. If your horizon if you knew you were done in three years doesn't deal. Start making a lot more sense. Yeah Yeah. I had never even thought about Carol's because next year's number. One probably doesn't help you a year after that. You're after that's number one remember. This is a deal that the draft already happened, so it's like you know it's like almost eight months before the first draft Jones I they look at this and I'm wondering if if they're looking at this like a three year window more years has Russell Wilson have on. Contract, he's older than people think. And he's got what I think. Three years left on the deal that he signed so this could be their three year stretch where they're going to empty the chamber. Try and get as many great players as possible and go chase that super bowl. That second one that they couldn't win and it's hard to do that if you don't have A. It's going to be like when you have a gun a rookie deal, but still you can say we're going to defer the pain like with a credit card, right? We're going to defer the pain into the future, and it feels like this deal townhouses. That's what Seattle is doing. Because otherwise it's not a great deal for Seattle. And there was no reason they had to make that. Deal right this second right. There's a roster bonus coming up to the jets, I think it was five million was going to have to pay here in the next week or two, so Russell Wilson in November turns thirty two so in a couple months, Russell Wilson is GonNa be thirty two. and. Sixty nine years old for the coach. And Jonas makes a good point thirty two in this day and age. You got good six seven years. It's a mobile quarterback which they age worst typically. Short Mobile quarterback that got drafted in what the third round for a reason! Yeah! Short quarterbacks don't tend to do. He's been able to transcend that with his physical skills. Do they deteriorate quicker? Meaning those physical skills that weren't obvious to the scouts that little ability to just avoid. One step so many of those third down conversion said just are magical when you watch him, just have just enough craftiness and speed to get away from the rush going to be able to do that in two years, and they were also and they were also looking at Antonio Brown while to like. Why would you look at it? Antonio Brown. If you were trying to build a culture, you'll get Antonio Brown when you're trying to chase titles well, but remember. Seattle is one of those rare teams of feels like day. Impose their. Their culture on the people. The people don't impose it on them. Patriots have that and I think pe- care probably has that because I know there's been people disgruntled with the culture. They laughed, but it doesn't seem to affected Seattle all that much, and that's a great thing about having a great culture. You can take a flyer now again. I'm not saying Seattle's cultures gray, but it is strong whatever it is strong I'm RJ, both straight out of VEGAS LAUDI issues here. It's too easy to say you don't trade for Blah Blah Blah. Issues I think the one know when I've heard is P. Carols on short time, and maybe if he's out to during couple years, Russell Wilson's out the door to not just the age issue, but as Jones said three years left on his contract, and you think there might be more deals at Seattle might have. Remember when you look at the market move and to repeat that half point per game advantage for atoms, so that helps the team help Seattle we look at that over the course of a season as worth about a fifth of a win so point Two v? That's nice. But I think it. Also some of that move may be Abou- hey, Seattle's announcing with their actions. There in win now mode, which makes you more optimistic about them winning now they'll make decisions. It's like a credit card. If someone says hey leaving LAS, Vegas I'm drinking myself to death I've got thirty days. Nick Nick. How? You probably he can spend a lot of money because he's going to be paying those credit cards, or whatever in the end, so P, carroll is nick cage this analogy and he will retire, said drink himself, but he'll be gone when that bill comes back when you were a kid.

You've been avoided and get expert advice on how to start talking. Find Friends who talk about money from John Hancock wherever you get your podcast. It is time for day. One of the thirty two team straight. OUTTA VEGAS NFL preview and we start with thirty two. Yeah, we got the computers on it figuring. How do we line up with the start of the season? It took about a week, but we figured we start today every show except one for skipping I won't tell you which one start tomorrow and day before the season kicks off the number one says who is number thirty two also known as the worst that Jacksonville Jaguars okay now. WHAT IS THE VEGAS MARKET? Say About Jacksonville. So one of the things you can do is you can get the win totals. Stack them up and say Kansas, city's the best bubble. Where's Jacksonville last? Four and a half wins expected. Okay, so literally you in Vegas agree you. Being the only two time where in the context and Vegas be in Vegas Jacksonville is the worst. Now. Here's what we're going to do. We're going to save a lot of pain to the country Steve's been struggling with the word tanking, because he wants to use the word tanking so bad for Jacksonville. We don't let him say tanking, because he said it so much about Miami and was so wrong. It's a ban in away and justify when she say yes, and there is no such thing as tanking there isn't. It's just how you define. No one's trying to throw games. No one say missed. I feel goal. Hey, if we put this guy in, he's worse, but no one knows it, so we'll have a better chance to lose now. It's just not I mean unless against fixed I, mean literally would be illegal in a way to do that. People are betting on this stuff sure. But there is deferring your reward. Faz, let's say that because of your bad record against me, heads up. You needed to borrow fifty times. So you want fifty thousand. If I borrow, lend to you that say high risk. Fourteen percent intra team percents a two points a week. It would have been back in the day, so here's the question. Before you had the mansion, here's the question. Do I not like money? Because I all of a sudden is handing over money now right, but the theory is what over the long run you're making a good invest I'm GonNa. Make More I. Don't know about that, but I'm going to have more money coming back to me, yes. Jacksonville saying listen to win in the NFL. You gotTa have everything. Go right to be a champion. Remember. It wasn't that long ago. Jacksonville was leading new, England, in the AFC championship game in the second half. That's a fact. So they know what it takes to get there and they know how far they are from there now. So what happens, you make decisions that all of your money coming do. Is focused at a similar time in the future. Why get a little bit all along the way never having enough? Why not defer so? What do they do? They Trade Ramsey now. The Ra-. It's the opposite. It's the opposite of what. The you know in in a way to the jets doing it's the opposite of what Seattle's doing Seattle saying, we'll take some pain later because we think we can win now Jacksonville saying we'll take some pain now, 'cause. We think we can win later. Yes, that's not tanking. So let's agree Jacksonville though does have their I towards winning in the future. They're going to be making a bad decision to win now. What's the second big thing about this team? Well, if you look at Minhsiu and it's consistent with what we discussed meant you I feel is a poor quarterback. He's by number thirty quarterback. Maybe Jacksonville is higher on him to number thirty in the NFL. You'd think so one of the worst starting quarterback. Yes, and bottom line is he wasn't bad for. For the first half of the year, he was just a slightly below average quarterback, but then when he came back after full Scott hurt again, he was a poor quarterback in his last five games. I gotTA wonder the film. The League got some film on Him, and the stash was not good at the end of the year. In this is what we've seen with a lot of those accidental starters from last year. The guys at weren't expected start they started. They did very well. Then, the opponents either limitations and there we go, so if you had to make one play of all the different types, what would it be either over or under could be anything would is the best play pro or con Jacksonville under four and a half season winds are, but it's just a strong lean, and here's why a strong lean under I think Jacksonville is very much helped by. They're not being many fans in the stands this year because they have a horrible homefield advantage, this actually helps them not to have fans and their stadium, and when they go on, so the conclusion is the following Jacksonville has been so bad. Bad for so long, and their fans are so bad. See Physics, says the fact that won't be any fans there. It'll be just a normal Sunday for them. And thus that negative is not quite as negative for them in the Jacksonville, positive yes, the number thirty two team Jacksonville Fox sports radio has the best sports talk lineup in the nation.

Bladerunner original theatrical release was the best cut. Underneath he's just getting hammered from people with memes. Do. You think these are people that really believed these things they're saying or just trying to get a rise like like I was I think there's probably a mix of both but I believe Wesley McNealy. I don't think Wesley was trying to get arise I think because there were a few likes to you know some people, some people like that I got. One. That's the one that what has less voiceover nor is it more voiceover? Voiceover or voiceover the for the theatrical had voiceover. That's right. That's right. That's right. And that the theatrical one was it more ambiguous or less big curious or the ending. One is where they drove away together in in happiness into the country, right? Yeah which was. They stole the shots from the shining shining either way around. You're right. Shining would have been earlier. The winding country road chess or whatever the scenic. Highway shots were stolen from the shining. Yeah. Exactly now I'm just confused. Okay Chuck. All right. Here we go Megan Rosa Ball says I doubt this week controversial in this crowd I.

Andrew, ABS sheer says, Star Wars episodes seven through nine are not that bad star wars fans ruined star wars. And you know what? Andrews got a lot of people agreeing. Seventy I I still can't even process the numbering system. So seven through nine is like post original movies. It's like the prequels and such right starting with seven. Hold onto. You hear the idea.

I hate hate hate when Harry met Sally I, think it's just woody Allen for the masses total knockoff. I've never seen when Harry met Sally is that the one where she like does the? Come. Kind of thing dead at. Ono. Good Lord. What you call it to like and fakes an orgasm and not that come thing. Sorry. Hey, my Lord, it's ten fifty in the morning. Hello. Okay I guess I've found trigger word I don't say the word calm until after into PM. I spell it as God intended C. o. m. e. I fuck all this you know you business in the Trump thing. Well. You knew what I was talking about. Didn't you chuck? Funny I've never heard. Describe it and seeing that way. Boy that's great. Yes. That is that movie no. Okay. Good. Good. Good. So where do you think about this hot take? Enjoy the film do you find it knock off? No Man I loved when Harry met Sally One of the Great Great. Perfectly, written most well acted romantic comedies of all time in genre that doesn't have a ton of great movies. it stands out the Great Nora, Ephron? I. Mean masterful. How dare you? How dare you sir or Madam Jan Madame so mad at you Jan I'm not that mad? Jan Lives in Jersey City suggest got going on. Michael. Williams all wes. Anderson movies are garbage. That's a troll right there. Now maybe not I don't know man will definitely have opinions about things. It's hard to tell sometimes because he didn't way back in sort of defend it. So he may have just been throwing a little. Little Bait in the pond. I mean he's he's definitely got a thing. That he does wes Anderson you don't like that thing you might not be into it. Now. That's true. I wouldn't say he's not he's I mean this is gonNa Sound I. Don't know this is entirely accurate but I'm I'm I'm GonNa say for lack of a better way of describing it he's not the most versatile director like he is his he's Wes Anderson. You'RE GONNA. Get a Wes Anderson Movie. Some of them might be animated. Some of them you know might have a law massive cast some of them might be a little smaller but like they're all going to be very symmetrical, they're all going to have quirky. You know miscreant characters that are trying to find their way in life. It man I mean I think he's the best I i. think he's so great. Yeah but I get what you mean if you're not into that world and you're certainly not gonna to any of them because they're all derivative of themselves. And I like it and a little on the kind of elitist film snob tip that some people might just be totally disgusted by you know what I mean. I get that. One alternate offs. Austin Hammer says hot take Hudson Hawk is actually a very clever funny entertaining movie. and Julia Broadened Clayton Res both endorse that an agreed I never saw it. Got Such bad reviews I just didn't even try. But so where he's a cat burglar and he's like I think so yeah, it's Bruce. Willis is a cat burglar. I remember seeing it on VHS from blockbuster when I was a kid and it's sort of a heist kind of situation but I don't really remember anything about it but I don't know might be worth a another look. Check it out in. Lyon says the avengers movies are painfully. Dull. Each. And got some people agreeing to interesting that's coming from Chuck I mean I always found them to be shockingly. Not Dull for how long they are they how many fucking characters they're just feel like they move along really at a great clip and I'm very impressed by that ability for them to fit all these characters and give them all their moments and have it never feel like overstuffed I think it's pretty impressive. Alright. Agree I mean they're? You know me I'm on record I'm I'm down with the MC? Faruk Barkat. Says this. Not sure if this is a hot date, but rudy is an annoying movie and character. And the real life person seems like an asshole not inspirational at all. I love the word asshole it's so good to go to and Butthole but host fund. Asshole I say about people but yeah. But whole is what I use when I referred to the anus. I, just a funny word sometimes I call people but holes too. But that's more dislike me China talk like a like a sixth grader you know yeah. Sure. Be A butthole. Yeah. Don Lozano. Star. Wars is not a teeny tiny bit interesting to me. With you bud. Some people don't like star. Wars. You're not interested at all now. No I was I was adding a hot take to take. I enjoy the star. I. Just don't think they're. As incredible as people make them out to be a I, think the original ones are have a lot of heart and there was a lot of innovation which is really important but I it a lot of ways there a little schlocky and kind of Sopore in a little overacted That's just me. But I enjoy all of them. They're fun. But I'm just not obsessed like some people are I'm with you diner route says saint almost fire and the big chill or completely overrated and are both bad movies. And Old. Around. Movies are overrated. Did. You. See Cover Matthews response now. He said Noah Brown. Your mom isn't. Sure. She's a she's a popular lady, amy crowd. says. No Brown your faces overrated. I believe I'd doubled I responded to that one in the affirmative I have a face for radio. Yeah, he said truth. No no you're handsome man. Thanks. I. Appreciate that. Did you see Vanessa Lopez got a kitten named the kitten after my my movie crush nickname. Now. Vanessa. Lopez. Got A kitten named. Forgive me for not knowing the gender named the kitten old smokey velvets. Looking fantastic she she tagged me it made my day. I. Love That I. got to see that Kitty. Lopez. Semi pick it's on the page. Is it yeah it's hard. Well she she inside of find me totally. Andrea Hamid says, I've never liked terminator two that kid is annoying. Brian Banquets has parasite wouldn't have won best picture if it were an American film. I Poo Poo on that I. Don't get all the parasite. Hey, it's just sour grapes. I thought it was wonderful. It is David Barlow says nice out wasn't as great as everyone seems to think it was. In got some validation from. Margaritas Mago. Oh. Breaking my heart I love that movie. Right let's read a few more of these. George Farah says, the Dark Knight is not a good movie. The only good thing about it was heath ledgers performance. I will say it's a little over long and the plots a little convoluted but. Yeah. He makes it for sure I never liked Christian. Bale. As Batman. I found him very obnoxious as Batman with that voice does yeah. I mean, the voice was a little overdone but I enjoyed all those movies. So I thought they were all really good. That there are very, very good. and. Let's finish up with trying to find a real good one. Okay we'll go with our Brin Debbie Ranga dacas. hereditary wasn't scary and the witch sucked shit. AVAL. Yeah. There's a lot of people they'll fight fight you on that one bud. Man, know the which wasn't for everybody, but you gotta appreciate the craftsmanship of that film, the attention to detail the period accuracy house. Amazing. The subtle scares now it's more like cerebral and I know that can stand in for boring but it worked in it I. Always I felt like at the end of the of that movie I was I had witnessed something like that I shouldn't have been witness to you know what I mean like I was dropping on some real evil shit totally love love that director of course we talked about the lighthouse lighthouse has a similar vibe similar quality of seeing something play out in front of your eyes. That's like, yeah, just fully authentic. I gotta read this one too Erin Snell says holy grail and princess bride or not funny at all quite frankly not very good movies. Even though I appreciate their cult fandom. Emily. Airs Titanic is a piece of Shit. Boy I mean people are. Some people just need to vent I guess and. Titanic is you know it's trite as shit nude. I'll give you that I liked it. It's you watched it in recent years. On. The nate demanded this on the show. That's right. I remember them. You. Know I liked it. It was fine. It's certainly the script sucked in a lot of ways. I think. John Cameron I think James Camera James Cameron losing my mind. No. You, threw me with that come come talk broke your brain. Think James Cameron's weakest point is a filmmaker is his writing? I. Always have. or His specifically as dialogue because there's more movie writing the dialogue. All right. I think we'll. We'll leave the oil of course I'm leaving it up because this on the crushers page and I didn't do it. Do Samuel g bets is Hamilton Sucks. Given wash the yet have you checked now? Still haven't it's I'M GONNA have to watch it by myself because emily was having a hard time finding time for a three hour thing. Yeah I watched the first hour I think a lot of people who have had to watch it in a couple of sittings because it is quite ethically long. Yeah. Yeah I'm GonNa, do it soon. All right, Margarita. That's fantastic. and now we're going to move over to one more thing from the crusher spades. It just have to navigate this. Garbage face facebook page to try and find it. no. Mike smelling. Junior he's one of the great crushers and all. Yes search this group for Mike Snowing Junior. That's what I'm asking you. Come on F. B. R. here we got. We got this. Here's his post and all this could be kind of fun best movie kill. Any genre any style what your favorite movie kill. I've got a bunch. I. Reserve them for. You. Want to go ahead and look you say you're one of them now. Well, there's one that I know someone mentioned, but it's the wood chipper seen in Fargo is is is ethically great and and very satisfying as the listener wrote in the in the post There's so many good ones. I got a rack, my brain but that one came to mind cause I saw somebody posted that and I completely agree Yep I mean there's different ways you can go here. There's just a straight up sort of inventive kill. If you're into that Kinda thing in a movie and Mike Smelling actually posted from punisher war zone snaps the guy's arm and stabs him with his own fractured bones. Like that's Haven't seen that before So there's like creative kills like that or it can be dissatisfying because. The bad guy gets what they deserve. Kind of thing you know. There's two different. Ways of looking or more than two. A good movie kill. Agreed. Joined a wick says, hello, my name is in Montoya you killed my father prepared to die. Yeah, very satisfying kill. How does he added is running through? He just Kinda runs through name with the with the this little sword was yeah, I. Think so. Justin laycock says anytime, someone is sliced in half kingsman is an example. Yeah, that's always fun. There is a good one of those in that movie Johnny Mnemonic remember that with Keanu, reeves, I never saw that it was kind of a cyberpunk kind of thing I remember thinking it was based on William Gibson like esque type material maybe even actually give some book, but there is a character who is a concert Asan's this old Japanese man who had this weird long thumbnail that you could pull out in like a laser whip it was it was like an implant. Fake thumbnail it wasn't like he was pulling out his fingernails. Are Laser thing like a Gherat whatever you call those the piano wire you know but made a laser and he would just whip it at people and they all apart in cubes or allow lately cut in half. Yeah. It sounds fucking killer. It was good. It was good. Also, Henry rollins plays. Dr. In that movie, which is a little interesting really. Interesting. And we rollins you know it says a lot to say, no. You like him. He's a smart fellow and he's definitely been witnessed to a lot of amazing culture cultural history. I can't say that I'm a fan of like black flag or like his music. Really. It's just the not my flavor but I think he's a interesting dude I like hearing them tell stories. Yeah. Yeah I mean he made A. Full. Second career is an has is. What do you call that a? Public Speaker. I guess. Spoken word. I mean what he does is somewhere between like storytelling and kind of like beat poetry or something I'm not really sure. Yeah you're right. It is a little weird. Wesley McNealy Harold Friends says death by carelessly placed toxic waste and robocop. Yeah. That was great. JP Mendez the department's Elevator scene. And? You kidding. BECCA. Lou, one of our Powell says the Mace to the face braveheart is pretty bad ass. GotTa gotTa Get Mesa Vase Jerry Movie Cube Chuck Think we've talked about cube. Cube the firs-. Yeah. There's the good good death seeing the very first scene pre credits even the dude walks into the room and then he like lead others like a swish sound and then there's like he falls apart into little cube shaped meet pieces, and then you see this like grid of bloody wire kind of like reset into the wall. That's cool. That's cool. Kill. I gotta say the the over the top. Ness of the end of once upon a time in Hollywood was Kinda Fun Oh. Yeah. Yeah and it's all you know it's good to see the Manson family getting he. Rated in different ways their just deserts. Yeah. I think I think thirty. Some people had like an issue with the whole. Violence against women thing even though she was there murder a pregnant woman it's still little Simpson Family I. Know I know just being liberal snowflake here. Karen, Patrick says there's a scene in machete I need to see that I don't know I never saw that seen in machete that involves someone's swinging out of a window by their intestines if I recall correctly, we were laughing so hard. Did you see machete? No, that's with. Danny trae ho? Yeah. Man He's he's amazing. He's on top chef year. It was great. Like as a judge yeah like they bring guests you know that they're always guests that are fans of the show. Yeah, and he came in it was great. He has a chain of Tacori as in La Southern, California I. Think it was a Taco challenge in fact that he that he came in on from that mistaken. Let me see Alexander Sharp says John Wick One as he shoots the bad guy. He just. Hits with his car as a bad guy roles over the car's roof. Yeah. He was using car as weapon. In John Wick yes. Very creative. I love those movies so much I think we've talked about it I. Just think they're so satisfied and really good use of key honorees I I watched the devil's advocate last week on hurling, but it's fine. It's you know it's fun but Canada Reeves is so wouldn and weird in so many things but when he's used correctly. It makes sense you know what I mean like I would never say that he's a good actor but he gives it his all and especially with like the stunt work and all of that that he does and Matrix, and John Wick and all that like I mean he's Definitely. A team player I've grown to love him as a human being as well. He seems like a wonderful guy. Roman, Fuqua. He's not the Kinda guy that leaves you waiting for hours and hours on a movie set. No. Now I heard lovely story about how he was like went to see a movie and the person who is writing this. This account was like the ticket taker and like said, oh. My Gosh Let me let me put you on the like. Let me let you use my my. Pass to get a discount. I. Just need you to sign your name right here and then Kinda, was like well, but I'm not you that'd be weird. It's fine pay for the movie and then he A knock on the back of the ticket door and it's Kiana reeves and he's got like A. Like a Jujubes jujubes in his hand or something like that and a receipt, and he's re he's I, I kind of figured maybe one of my autographs. So I I wrote I did my autograph here on the back of this receipt and then he and then he proceeds to throw the candy in the trash making him realize he went and bought something just. So he could get the receipt to sign his autograph for this kid he showed us on the jujubes that would have been cooler. You're right I saw that other story where he was He went to the person who lived in the House knew that they drove him to set by her house and they put a in the front yard that said something about Hey Kiana or whatever, and he made the driver pullover sign the sign. He just seems like a great guy there plenty of stories online about Keanu Reeves doing wonderful things. We also lost his significant other really tragically longtime ago, and his never really you now had a long standing relationship sets. It looks like he's always been kind of a loner. Well he does now he does that's great. That's good. I'd love to hear that. Yeah he's been dating this woman but very low profile for for a bit. Now I think is recently kind of come a little more public got. She seems like a wonderful hours I want Canada to be happy he just seems like a sweetheart me to Romeo. FUQUA. Says, final destination movies have a bunch that log truck seen as messed up a lot of people for life I never saw that but I do know of that scene. And I've heard a lot of people say that like they can't even ride like drive near log truck ever again. Yeah the one that did it for me is whether the kids in the shower and he slips and falls on this piece of fishing line is hanging up to like dry socks and it just wraps around his neck like a bunch of times and you see like the the blood vessels in his eyeballs burst as advocates well, like clawing at his throat, you know for it's really upsetting. Totally upsetting, this is a good one, Jim Wine Press says Sam Jackson deeply. My younger teenage self was blown away. Yeah. That was pretty funny. Do you remember that Bart? Totally the shark just comes out and snags him. Those. Good. Isn't that actually the sharks dead to or we think the sharks sort of out of the picture. Then that's like the big return I think so. Unexpected because it was fairly early in the movie and. They were just I think he was ranting about like what do you forever and it was just of nowhere that's what made it so shocking. I guess everyone knows he's are spoiling everything Shirley right I would hope so chuck I would hope so can't talk about movie kills without spoiling some stuff no. This is kind of good. There was some this from Adam Smith though some movie with volcano I watched when I was younger that I can't remember the name of haven't been able to for years lava was like underground and there was these two guys stuck in some sort of car and one guy was. One Guy was disabled. So the other guy had to pick him up and jump over some lava while carrying the guy, but the guy only made it halfway with the other guy. While he was lava melting Magai had to throw the disabled guy the rest of the way before he finished melting. That is that is a real. Complicated scenario right then Josh Taco Tokyo says it's called Volcano. And Adamson said it really that's hysterical. What a weird fun thread that I was thinking about that was I think the movie you're thinking of is volcano. Yeah. That would have made it better if it was called Volcano Colon the movie. Pamela Eddin's Leyritz says gone girl when amy slits diseased throat so much blood I could watch it over and over. Why Sicko? Jeez. Oh. Here's a great one. All Jesse grains has bone Tomahawk, you know the scene. That's a cutting and Hafer. Show yeah. Watch that again, that was one of my favorite movies of that year. And definitely one of my favorite Westerns and that guy's real interesting he's done some other ones like dragged across concrete and something about a cell block something or other like a brawl and cellblock something forget the guy's name. But yeah, he seems really interesting Casey's Fan. Oh. Yeah Didn't surprise me. Our oldest different pointer says fast bender putting the coin through Bacon said X. Men First Class Yeah remember that. I don't think I'd do. Is it like if I remember? Something it was like, Oh, I. Think it was very slow if I remember correctly. The coin just goes very slowly into his brain and through his head. Oh Wow. Kevin, Bacon. Gosh the BACON ATER I don't even remember him being in that movie. Was He he was a bad guy soon as the a bad like FBI agent or something I just I really don't remember much about X. Men First Class trying to remember I think he was a Nazi. Was a Nazi No. I think flashback. Trying to remember it's been awhile. That's all ringing your bell. Nikki Taylor Snyder of course, has the memo of Hans Gruber falling off of Nakagomi Plaza. Pretty satisfying kill. Cheryl creech signer says when Vincent vague accidentally shoots Marvin in Jules his car gets me every time I see it. Yeah that was pretty classic. Classic votes for Kill Bill just overall. Air Kacem says like everything in it, but especially, the five point five Finger Death Punch ads get one. Trying to find this coin seem this is very intriguing to me but I'm. Having our time and. It's just a long clip. Just, take your time. No. fucking ear. Oh. Come now. Could talking about coming. All right. Let's do a couple more and get out of here. The Accountant, this from Christine Cope. With John Lithgow Character I. Didn't see that movie. I think those Ben Affleck thing right The accountant is, is it assassin movie for some reason? It strikes me as so I think he was assassin. I did not see it and we'll finish up here withdrew Thomas with the Wichita Fargo still the best. And got a lot of applause for that. Great. Great Kill in that movie. My favorite part of that sequences win Fran mcdormand. Points to her badge on her hat. Because the wood chipper so loud actor hands up freeze police freeze police. Then he looks over and she just points at her hat. That's fantastic. So Cute I love love love. Framework Dormant. She's great. All right that at my friend family. It is pretty wow. Slow motion. Yeah. Big Time very slowly was ads just coming at him in baking and as he he's he looks he looks pretty nausea. Yeah. All right. A NASTY NAASI confirmed. All right good one was. Always a pleasure. Yeah. Dude I. always good to see you and I guess I don't know for our next week or not I guess we'll have to see but Appreciate your time and efforts and. Your handsome face. Thanks.

Fallbrook Fun

"Welcome to things to do in San Diego. I'm your host Suri Manelli and today I'm really excited about fallbrook and our guest is Jamie purring. Tin The owner of hide off magazine and hike it off clothing. She's an avid hiker and she told us about some of the most amazing places to hike the Santa Margarita River which is incredibly beautiful and incredibly diverse verse with a three hundred year old canopy so whereas fallbrook in relation to San Diego. It's the north most city in San Diego. cownie money on the fifteen before you hit temecula and it's on the backside of oceanside so it's not exactly coastal but it's not east county either and and what's really fascinating about fallbrook is it's got several wineries. It's really small friendly town. A lot of artists is there. So you're gonNA find a lot of those little tiny shops galleries teacups antics. Things like that There's a little bit of history there. There used to be a train. There's no longer train but they're used to train. The goes went through there in the eighteen hundreds and so there's a lot of history about that and there's also a gem and the mineral museum which is really fascinating. There's some other unique things but we'll wait to let Jamie tell us about that in the interview one more thing to know about the show. Is that neither my guest nor I get compensated in any way for any of the places that we talk about on the podcast. And that's so important to me because I want it to remain authentic as if you were talking to a friend. Who's in that town and they're telling you all the really cool places to go? The the way I do get compensated is if you go to things to do in San Diego Dot. US You can find a link for Patriot on. And I always appreciate it when people send me need those Patriot donations that helps inspire me to keep going with the show and I might on occasion also put some affiliate links in the show notes. But just know anytime I do that. Not only are they clearly labeled but I'm only putting in affiliate links that I think are appropriate and that would help you like if it was for booking hotels or concert tickets or or whatnot anyway. My purpose for the show is for you to have the best day ever in in San Diego and so here we go with Jamie talking about fallbrook. What's tall famous for farmers for Avocado cottage? So we're actually known as the avocado capital of the world. I don't know how true that is but I love to think that it is true So we have lots of farms to very rural community. Lots of Avocados. And we're getting a lot of grape growing as well for wine grapes so it's a pretty rural part of the county I and it's really beautiful. and the weather's just awesome involve break. There's a few festivals what what are the festivals that they're known for them while our biggest festival that were known for Awards Avocado Festival and that takes place every year. In April we have about one hundred twenty thousand people that come out for the day and it's it's just a lot of fun. There's a log avocado stuff so there's guacamole contest. There's dressing avocado contest. There's you can buy all kinds of avocado type hype things whether they're edible. Avocado Shakes Fried Avocados or things made out of avocado itself. So Avocado would bulls all that. So it's really just away from town to get together and invite hundred twenty thousand of our closest friends and celebrate avocado everything that we can use them for and and then there's another. I think you mentioned that there was also a second kind of festival there. Third with what other festivals are there similar to our local festivals. We have a what is called wine in a bite and that is where local businesses in the downtown area pair up with restaurants and wineries and it's a walking type festival. Will you walk from business to business where you'll get a little piece of food and it's paired with wine from a local winery. The chamnber handles that also just launched a new one that is populism bruce so seem similar concept instead of wine in food it's beer and in different various forms of potatoes. So let's talk a little little bit more to give our listeners an idea of whether or not they want to come to fallbrook to stay or just make it a day trip. So can you tell people about outlined the transportation safety and then we'll go into where they would stay since fall workers rule those not the a lot of public transportation and the downtown area is very walkable so you can walk in shop. All the shops down there and get to quite a few of the restaurants but as far as accommodations. I always recommend when I have friends visiting. If they're not staying with me to look at AIRBNB so there's a ton of really cute little airbnb that are available. While some are on avocado farms. Some are on ranches. So you're really looking for a place to get away. That's rule and kind of quiet and slow definitely definitely check out Work if they wanted to go downtown. How far would it take Helen's it take you to get to downtown from Fallbrook Dunton Gun Ted Kennedy. It's about well with a traffic so without traffic. It's about forty five minutes with traffic Republican. We got an hour and a half. Yeah it's way up there. I mean it's Kinda surprising that it still San Diego County yet and we don't have traffic in Faubourg so you can escape the traffic and come forward. There's traffic it might be because there's like a flock of wild peacocks. Crossing the road or something. They have to wait for but That's about it. And then what else is fall were close to. I know it's close to Basel. which is another rural town? Yeah so farmers really close the bonds will it's close to the backside of oceanside and it's also close to Temecula so fabric is a good place to come and stay at your planning on Wayne Teaching as well as you can kind of experience both both the rural aspect of fallbrook and then wine tasting getting into Macula. Let's start with the museums. There's the gem and Mineral Society that event to with the kids. Yeah the Gem Mineral Society is really fun. If you're into you know crystals or any kind of rocks it's really great for kids So you can go in there and learn a lot about that sort of thing but they also have a glow on the dark room so there's minerals that glow in the dark so it's really fun to kind of go check that out and see them under black light in an experience that definitely a good kids place my kids just they think they spent like an hour in their shopping at things. Yeah Great Place and the General Society also hosts their own little festivals. A couple times a year as well which you can get that information on our website and it's waving kinda go buy buy stuff from that and people come with all their different rocks walks in minerals and gems is your second museum there or is there something else that was interesting. Wasn't there something. We have the historical society the former Kostoric society is basically geared geared toward the history of Albert put fabric was a big train depot. Back in the day so so it was built that attribute depots bill eighteen eighty two Basically was a stop on the way from San Diego. That train shot continued tenure up the Santa Margarita River which is river valley that we have here in fallbrook and out into Temecula the tracks themselves have been washed out a couple of times and and repaired and so because of that because of the train coming through here is really a big reason of why Farkas even here it has to do with a lot the history. The train was finally closed in nineteen eighty one and the train depot itself was torn down. That's where our sheriff station is now but the Warehouse House next to the Sheriff's Station is art center. And that is one of the original buildings. Supposedly the historical society talks all about that. There's historical artifacts in Nair with train. Stop and tons of photos is just a really neat place to go. If you're a trained buff the historical society also has installed An old caboose right in on Main Street in downtown and so it's really cool with your kids will not I love it. I've taken my picture in front of a million sometimes but It's just a fun little quirky thing just like how Faubourg is you know funding quirky but eventually that is going to be the future railroad wrote Heritage Park. So that's part of it in the works so I want to point out the irony. So it's a real root tumble. You cannot get there by train not anymore. Ah Make sure that that I can totally see somebody. Misunderstanding us in like trying to figure out how to get the train. Yeah I know so. The train was shut down in one thousand nine hundred eighty in. What was the last train to come through fall break okay? Although there is a legend that you can still hear the train's Horn in town And have you heard it. I have not okay enough to downtown to Europe. There's a lot of locals that's where that that they can still hear it. That's interesting Hebrew coffee places because it seems like some of these rural towns have like a more of those mom and POPs so we have two that are privately owned. They're both equally adorable in equally. Have great copy Brick town is right on main street. And it's just great to go. There's Cubal charity consider up front. It's really cozy inside and it's actually connected to a wine bar now so it's in the morning and get your copy in the evening Lots lots of local wine and then we also have former coffee company which is just off main street and it's really cute little cottage and it just feels when you walk. It just feels like a cute little coffee place in there will really cozy okay. Let's talk about restaurants. There's not too many but I know that you've got if you favorites. She said yard so I have two of my favorites and their pull equally awesome. So I'm not going to see which one is my favorite but once you stop in west West and small town They're both family owned and the food is incredible. Small town of specially focuses a lot on local goal food. I know that's been popular for a long time. But they really live by so they have these mushroom tacos that are unseen and I went in a couple weeks. They didn't have them only because they couldn't get the mushrooms locally so they didn't just go buy them from somewhere else in the tacos It forced me to try something else which was great because everything. There's just amazingly good and the owners of the type that you walk in. And they give you cog in there. Thank you for coming back. So it's it's just an awesome locally to go eat beat my husband. I usually go there on Friday night. Date night they do serve local wines and local beers and they do some events as well so I know they're doing a really Nice Valentine's Day dinner that's a four five course. Wine paired dinner dot com stuff and then once you seven is also locally owned. The food is incredible he they also serve local wines and beers there. They have a really nice bar area so when my husband go in there on usually alternate date night week we love to sit at the bar. The bartenders are all super friendly. It's just a great place to go. You feel comfortable everyone we go. It just feels like your homage just really comfortable when people are so friendly. Faubourg is actually known as the friendly village. And it's true. You know everyone locally it you go from the restaurant to even our little local grocery store major market you go in there and the people that are helping to bring us up you know ask over go hiking today. It's just that kind of place where you just feel at home. No matter where you go is really cool are there. wineries breeze spars ars any any other places to talk about. Yeah so we have our has quite a few wineries and a couple tap. Room's one of my favorite wineries. His which is also an AIRBNB is a state echo belly. And it's up on a mountain above Pala Mesa resort and it's a small little winery it but it's just really cool because their view is just gorgeous. You can sit on the patio. have some wine taken the view and if you WanNa see the whole week in there you can actually rent out. The House has a swimming pool in summertime. It's it's just a really nice little space. We have a local wine club. It's called ladies Wine Club Faubourg in the winery hosted us for a day and we had so much fun. I did not sleep. I wanted to just move in there. We also have a tap room. Mm That is prohibition Berry so the actual brewery is in Vista but they did open at taproom in Fabric Series To to get prohibition and Beers there and that is right on main street. So it's really fun. If you're hanging out in your shopping and you wanted to stop it and have a beer. We also have a local restaurant called Cuban brew and they they have an awesome little bar. They do tap takeovers every other Friday and they they hope they have a ton of local beers and wines available as well. It's just a cool. Who'll little place it's it's in the original firehouse? So there's a lot of Fire historical memorabilia in there and it's just a fun little does seems to go detonates. Your food to they do they do serve food. So it's all barbecued some. It's barbecue in beer recently. And they are going to local lines. It's okay There were some other wineries that you had told me about before. Yes two thirds the vineyard one to four which is really awesome at Christmas mistimed. They open up for. I WANNA see about a month and a half or so. They still Christmas trees. And then you can also go. They do bonfires every night. We'll have live music. Dick you can have glasses of wine will have food trucks. So it's really kind of an event to get your Christmas tree and the place is just like so adorable. They saw you saying vineyard. One twenty four is only open for those six weeks or whatever so generally asked only open for six weeks. I did notice that they do other events as well. I just started falling among these book to find out when they when they're going to open the winery but when it is open. It's so much fun to go but Christmas time is really fun. My husband and I always go at least a couple times a year. We get bottled pulled up. Hang out by the The bonfire with our friends. We have Myrtle creek. We have the toasted oak. We Have Beach House and then we have FARC winery in which is actually probably the largest winery in fallback and they are in distribution. So you can actually buy their widens locally at places like Albertson's and then we also have constitutionists awesomeness which is owned by a lovely couple making Susan and they open up their home for their winery. You join the wine club you can go up there. It's actually up above up fallbrook in kind of like the Rocky Mountain area. So it's really rural gorgeous. Home that overlooks this big canyon with their vineyards and their wine China's great to about a bar or any other bars that you still there if you're into dive bars. We have the best device are it's called the red eye and it. It is religious up to its name. I think every time I've been there we have stayed in closes in with. Oh Gosh has has got of your own to you. But it's just you're straight up. They don't take credit cards. You ought to have cash law of locals hang out there. There's a lot of retired tired marines and military the hang out there. They have really good bands on the weekend denouncing. Dj Kariuki all the things that dive barbed should have. Oh Okay Salon hiking. I imagined you know this is pretty rural. It's definitely not by the ocean. I'm you know how long it takes you to the ocean about a half hour but our okay. I think you're an avid hiker imagined with a hiking nagazine that you might take a little bit So what do you think about the hiking places to go so in my husband and I moved from Ocean side we were. We were hikers in surfers. And we live by the beach so that we can start off and it was always my dream to move to Falkirk since there's little kid 'cause I just love Rothfield but what really pushed over the edge to move. There was the Santa Margarita River trail. which is if you do the whole trail? You've been actually win eleven mile loop and it runs along the Santa Margarita River which is a role river it flows year round. It is obsolete beautiful all your hiking through three hundred year old oak canopies. There are deer down. There are beavers in the river. There are a bunch of endangered fish. There are a blue herons. There are tons of Hawks in all kinds of birds. There's a severe SUV. You're obviously but I'm getting out of your into wildlife. There's a ton of a ton of wildlife down others hotel in bobcats mountain lions. It's just stunning. So so we would drive from oceanside once once once a week ish and we would hike the river and so my husband being a really big server said if I could find a house that we can walk to you that we could buy three walk to the trails that he would consider it so I did and we bought it and we moved to fallbrook. It's been about ten years now dot trail At least once a week it's dog friendliest. You can bring your dogs in the summertime. It's really nice because he bought the water in the trees as a little bit cooler. We also have Mountain which is it's a very. It's a pretty short hike. The whole loop is only about five miles but you're going up about twelve hundred feet in violent hap- since really steep so it's a great hike for training so if you WANNA get in shape that's a really good one to do. Once a week. We have a couple preserves ars that are managed by fabric land conservancy and there are a little bit shorter. Hikes are also equally beautiful with lots of oak trees and Sycamore Trees. And they're those preserved our great for kids so you can do short little milder and get out into nature and still experience at all. All the trails are dog friendly. uh-huh in fallbrook on a leash. They're just all stunning. They're all beautiful. Where would you start if I wanted to come out and go on that trail by the river where I start? How do I get there so to get to the childhood for the Santa Margarita River you would take deludes road which is right off of mission road and you're going to head north and there's GonNa be a wine you're gonNA stay to the right and that just takes you right to the dry so it's probably only never actually gauged it? How how far town? But it's it's it's not that far I would say maybe two miles out of town to get to the the chill had and are there signs and directions could easy to find. It's easy to find. There's nobody there no signs but if you just google it it's easy you can or you could probably they just put it right into your navigation. It'll take you there. It's a real popular trail There's so many wonderful things I mean. It sounds like just a ton of history. I mean Avocados data. Of course. That's fun in those festivals and some little quaint shops. Are there little antique shops. Or something down to. Yeah Faubourg downtown. There's quite a few the anti shops that have really fun. Unique a things for sale in them a lot of the residents a lot of people that moved to fall volver artists because artists. One that that rule fueling the quietness and they end up opening shops downtown to be able to eh display their superfund lines so there there's there's all kinds of antique shops in the community is centered around artists to you like why earlier we have the our wine bite. That's the walk. We have lots of little art studios downtown onto you where you can see. Local People's paintings and different kinds of exhibitions in that kind of thing. So I can't wait to explore Default work a few times ever. It's been a long time so this is really exciting. So yeah and the Chamber of Commerce has really good out helping visitors visitor down there too so you can only stop in the chamber. It's Ri- on Main Street She's amazing she. She knows everything there is to know about fabric and she loves it. Probably more than I do Possible yeah she's great so before we end this podcast. I need to point out that there's been one big change group town. Coffee Coffee has new ownership and now it's called coffee. corks and cuisine. Of course this only happened a few days after we recorded this episode assode but it does remind me to tell you about the show notes that are posted on things to do in San Diego Dot. US I take the time to link every place that we talk about to the web page or to some information so that you can easily find the hours and location etc and they actually do this for myself as well because a lot of times. I'm so inspired by these guests that I'm going to these locations and I sometimes forget all the places that were mentioned so I look up the show notes and try and figure out where I want to go based on the show notes.

The Ultimate "Pay It Forward"

"We are so grateful to our launch partners, founding partner PNG and Bank of America. Together, we're bringing you something good every day and it wouldn't be possible without their support. Welcome to this episode of here's something good a production of the Seneca Women podcast work and iheartradio. Each day we aspire to bring you the good news, the silver lining the glass half full because there is good happening in the world everywhere every day we just need to look for in share it. Here's something good for today. The. Pandemic has been tough on everyone and navigating the healthcare system at this time has been particularly challenging. We wonder if we can get the proper tests if we should enter waiting rooms if they'll be enough medical staff. Now consider the extra words if you're a person living in poverty or an immigrant with limited access to resources. That's why local community health centers that treat underserved communities are real lifelines particularly during the Kobe Crisis Twenty eight, million people in the US, use them. Clients are predominantly low income people and people of color groups. The pandemic has hit especially hard. One of the most impressive of these centers is in the Los Angeles area the Venice Family Clinic it has twelve facilities in different locations and serves almost twenty eight, thousand low income men, women, and children. Now, there are probably a million stories you could tell about the vet clinic, it's dedicated doctors and medical teams, its clients and supporters. One of the most remarkable is a story that gives new meaning to the term pay it forward. Today we're speaking with Dr Margarita Louisa, the daughter of hardworking immigrant parents she grew up in a household that never had much money as a child she lived in tremendous pain due to a congenital hip condition but the Venice family clinic treated her helped her walk and open the door to an active life. As a child Margarita vowed to give back and that's exactly what she did. Here's what she had to say. Thanks so much for joining me today. Thank you for having me. So tell us a little bit about the Venice family. Clinic the people at Serbs and in what you do there. So I'm a family medicine doctor at the Venice, family clinic I have been working there since two thousand one prior to that I was a patient with along with my two brothers and two sisters, my mom and Dad. and. I've been I've pretty much have grown up at the clinic. I've either been patient there with my last physical exam right before college or a volunteer during College during my pre medical years or. You know after residency I went to volunteer and then I was hired I've been working there since two thousand and one and I'm a family medicine doctor in I see patients I do primary care I also go to Santa Monica High School in I have base team clinic. Wow and so did the clinic inspire you in your decision to become a doctor? The clinic was always the ideal for me. I didn't inspire me I I remember when I would go for my well child exams or to see the doctor I remember being fascinated in excited and I wanted to learn more and they would ask me what I wanted to be when I grow up, I wanna be a doctor in it. So excited it was a a really I remember we have a holiday movie every year where we give we take to the movies and we give them toys and I remember going to a holiday movie and I remember getting a Barbie doll I mean I have really good memories of the clinic. Varna. That's incredible. Now you're there and you're working I understand very hard especially in this moment, what are you focused on right now and how is everyone reacting to Kobe? I'm one of many people that are working really hard at the clinic. There's a lot of really great doctors. Physician assistants and we're working I'm working specifically on telemedicine and Telehealth, and how to bring it to people who live in poverty and how to do telephone visits and video visits with patients and how to take what we used to do in a face to face is it and Kinda. You know do it virtually how we took our classrooms from face to face to zoom meeting, and so we're trying to kind of expand the clinic and we don't need to physically be in the building provide medical care. So I'm trying to see how we can leverage the phone. Our video visits and how we can do to reach out to more patients, and you know still continue to give care during this time. Well, it's clearly a very difficult time and I'm sure you're kind of handling incredible amounts of stress and seeing very difficult circumstances. How are you? How are you finding working in this environment? It's challenging every day there's a new challenge and I have the deepest respect for the people that work at the clinic because I know every day they come they might be a little bit afraid or apprehensive but I think that it's always heartwarming. Hear about people restaurants will send us food or sent people will mail US handmade mass people will donate p and people will thank us over the phone. So it's just all that in watching everybody show up to work in keeping the clinic open has been very inspiring me. and. What should listeners know? About how they can support the clinic I think that a way to support the clinic. If you have a chance, you know we can always use donations we were in a have a big donation campaign to Syracuse. It's our fiftieth anniversary celebrating fifty years. We had a lot of things plan but. Those things are not happening anymore and we need to keep our doors open because we take care of the most vulnerable patients at those patients are serving you food working in the grocery store. Delivering your food and cleaning the restaurants clinics, hospitals you attended, and so by giving to us as trying to keep essential workers health healthy, it keeps us all healthy. So our clinic is really important too many many lives and our patients are people's Nannies People's restaurant workers. They're doing. Really. Chops that can't be done from home and they're suffering a lot phys they don't have. You know they do telework they don't have sick days. You may not have workers comp so it's Really, important to keep US Open. But we are so grateful for everything you do every day and for the clinic. And thank you so much for joining us on the show. Thank you. Dr Luas story is so inspiring and it shows how one good act can inspire many more positive deeds grading a ripple of good that can move us all forward. So, here's something good for today. Dr Louisa and the Venice Family Clinic are reminder of how much we owe the essential workers who have kept our society going during the pandemic. They're often unsung often low income, but they need and deserve medical care to. and Dr Lewitt's story shows how one life moved by sense of purpose can affect. So many more. And if you want to support the Venice family clinic, go to Venice Family Clinic Dot Org have a great day. Thank you for listening and please share today's something good with others in your life.

Hello the Internet and welcome to this episode of they'll tell the story of desite Little Hamilton reverence. Which? Pick nailed it I'm Jack. Fat Smiles All oh. Yeah. O'Brien gray respect. Let's tell the people what's trending. We. We've been talking about. One Bari Weiss all day our pounds yeah Berry Bari the Indian writer whose opinion I've never respected. Stink. I mean it's a Lotta. Weird. Both sides that a lot of her opinion. Pieces are, and she has a lot of bad faith. Arguments on you know apartheid state, Zionism and things like that and. this resignation. According to her letter about like I mean it's just. The the market free ideas completely gone in that place in democracies died in that editorial. It's not progressive like it's our talking like we'll. Certainly regressive is not good either because. The society we were all about improving things, not arguing on behalf of our ideologies, but. Go off, yeah she. She in her resignation, letter said they have called me and Nazi and racist. I have learned brushoff comments about how I'm quote writing about the Jews again so. She's claiming that the people who call her a Nazi racist for being racist in her writing, and also being very. You know militantly Zionist and pro. Apartheid? State are also antisemitic in their legs, just like such A. Bad. Faith argument or like she's taking to quotes from clearly two separate sides, and being like the I, mean these are criticisms of me. And therefore a fuck progressives, and it's all part of canceled culture. Yeah I. Mean it's. It's weird for someone who like works with a reporter like Nicole Hannah Jones. You know when like a Pulitzer. For her sixteen nineteen work, and the shit that she would get for people, and not you know not no not taking her back on anything like that when there's like real people who are facing this kind of stuff, and still continuing to act like you are in this like oppressive. Environment. I mean by definition. If you are spitting like weird conservative bullshit that is you know not inclusive and exclusionary and Xena phobic and any other thing. Yeah maybe that does feel hassle when you're full. People who don't agree with that because it's objectively A. It's not a winning hand. Yeah, it's. Also, just morally wrong and tolerating is morally wrong. It's not the not the right thing to do. and she has been complaining that there's a civil war between forty something white liberals, and the younger walks as she calls them. Yeah, which is basically a derogatory term for people who believe progressive values. Thing she even got into spat with Nicole, Hannah Jones over like this article about how? There's like this about like. There's this piece that vanity. Fair was describing Jordan Petersen's a gateway drug to like the outright and going on Blah Blah Blah and she and Brad Stevens was also like in this. You know conservative, visionary Brad Stevens was also. They're like in this article, but byways like she quote tweeted this a few years ago, it was like the gateway drug to those flirting with the outright are actually pieces like this? That was mentioning that. This is a tightrope that they're doing and then Nicole Hannah. Jones is like quote. Tweet at her. I remember like this. He said, according to New York Times style. All right is to be described as a racist far right fringe group. So you're saying pieces like this are the gateway to white people becoming white supremacists. That's your hot take and she's like. Hi there. What I'm saying. Is that draw distinctions between people like Sam. Harris and people like Richard Spencer Strips the designation all right of its power in meaning that has two main effects as I see it first, and then it just based. When People Start Cape being like further word or brown all right, that's okay. My antenna's gone up. Nine, ten gone, yeah, and Jia Tolentino in trick. Mirror writes about like. Canceled culture as she deals with it, a go tolentino, which is like she's an online writer she has been. Criticized and shouted down for things she's written before, and rather than just being a defensive and ignoring the perspectives of the people who. Criticize her. She just listens to them and has a conversation and eventually. Figures out were adjusts her stance and has learned every time. That something like that has happened. Is actually a very a great writer and a smart person and Barry Weiss. It seems like her responses to just. Get defensive and. Equivocate and fight anybody who who wants to criticize her and her career. Long like the one thing that you can count on is that she is going to complain about people criticizing her, which seems to be? A strong strong tendency on the right. So. I feel like I've been negligent in not opening vershow the fuck Barry Weiss but you know the secretary scepter down, although on a twenty fifth I remember when like George, Floyd was killed there. She had like a piece I was like Joe Rogan as the new mainstream media and she was like in like she was like in the studio. And in a way on my yeah, he definitely has a large. You know audience that definitely listen to him, but like the whole pieces like Oh. Come on Bari. Yeah. The La Times is trending They came out and said it's time to find. A new national anthem canceled. The Star spangled banner. The best tweet you know I'm about to cancel my subscription to the La Times then that was going to happen when me WANNA cancel the top reading the news. Even know who Francis Scott key was. Did you know how wealthy his family was from slavery? Do you know how tidy was with Andrew? Jackson? Do you know? Do you really okay? Now guy was cool and maybe the lyrics. We had to change a couple of things around, but it's still I mean I don't know what? I I'm trying to think of places. Other sporting events only in the Olympics, do is my. Does do I have like a thing. Where like okay. I think there's a national anthem there for like international tournaments. We're like you're representing your country against another nation in competition, y'all see that like a rugby or for purposes of identification. Yeah, but the in the like you know you don't go to Japanese baseball game and they don't have Kiyo like playing like over the loudspeaker before you start the game off or anything like that, very. The, I don't know. Yeah I I think the only my only like my first thing is like Oh. Can you do that, but I'm almost? That's only because I'm like I've been thirty five years on this planet. Just knowing that that's just like my Pavlovian response like. I'm at sport event because I've heard. Bob Aw bone. Like, that was. Sucks. SOX! NOx ducks Bro just. What should we replace it with like what's what's good song that gets at what's great about this. Country I'm taking submissions on Twitter A. But should be. Being covered a lot I guess right. Yeah I mean is almost like. Do we have to sing, you know? Just. Can we just do international players anthem? yeah that that would be good. That will kind of get you. You know even though that one goes for a little bit of time runs a minute time investment. Also I'll stick around for that just because when he gets going. Then you're a guy you're you have your energy up and it's a little sentimental, and then you're like wait. Why are we here again? Oh, that's right. Play Ball here in a stadium full of Nascar Fan. Sing along to a youtube. And people be like. Hey, take your damn hat off man. Weird. Anyway. Did you hear that that? Every girl that he'd CC round town. God Damn is there's so many like beautifully perfect corny lines in Andres verse on that Oh. Yeah, the spacious. Don't come review Mir's. Yes, they say yeah. windings please personally blinded eight people in a single day at George, Floyd protests This is that behavior hasn't been explained hasn't been really addressed. Still continuing, but the those videos that we've seen of police just straight up. shooting at people shooting at a local news casters who are just staying there. With like full intent like you can see them just. To. Head. Yeah, that has been explained to way there. The police just feel like they. You know the fact that we even get to question them. Is That's a crime actually? Yeah, that's a crime and it's not our right and they've just. That's why an independent little babies when you look at those like any kind of police interaction that goes south. It's always when this typically weak willed man has been didn't like his authority has been denied by someone. And that's when it will like what dude I'm a cop. It's really just sort of like what dude I'm a kid. Nobody listened to for their entire life. Then I got into this Gig. Where if you fuck oh? Yeah, fucking say you're not gonNA. Listen to me because I can turn it up real quick. Have that on my side, and like that's the energy of of these people you see when especially when people know their rights. It's like even doubly infuriating to like some of these officers like okay as your Lord. It's You know we got. We have to really think about how we deal with crime and define crime. I feel like I say this all the time, but. There's so many quote unquote crimes being committed, which is really just our failure to take care of our neighbors in our community. It's because people are desperate. Some because there's there's this evil thing. Going round called crime said we're leaving people behind and like that's how some some people have to survive in ways that we've deemed illegal. Man I got such a visceral like flashback to just like those bullying S. kids who I grew up with when we doing that like what you're not gonNA listen me. Like I I have to look those people. I moved around a lot, so I lost track of like. With. Trauma. See, How many of them became cops. Wouldn't you know what they're all? They're all kinds by the way. Speaking of bad cops. Have you seen the show unbelievable on that flicks about unbelievable, the serial rapist but it's got. It's got some really good performances. One of the girls from book smart, isn't it and is great? To see that book smarts really funny, it's because I don't want it to unseat Cock blockers in my mind for teen comedy movies that share just seacock blockers so. Proud. Hot blockers and all see books. Deal. So Funny Her Majesty's lows a movie to that. There's this one friend of ours who as a bit always center the DVD of blockers? She loves it, so we've got three fucking. DVD's in this house. Thing that should. That's funny. And then finally, the Donner Party is trending. Be Seen this story about the donner. Party yeah. History. Waving the. The trail going westward, yes, a rush, limbaugh, one of their a honorary fuckers from the beginning of every day's show. Just broke out the metaphor that America needs to start to adapt. Just like the Donner party adapted and a surge eating people wait, did he? Was He aware enough to be able to talk like? Did he mention that that we need to eat each other, or he would just a nuance. He completely missed because that's what most people think of what the what happened with the Donald No I think he was saying like. Hey, times are tough, we. You know we got, we got to start making some tough decisions late. Let me read the direct quote. It looks like the corona virus is being weaponized as yet another element to bring down Donald Trump now. I want to tell you the truth about the coronavirus. The coronavirus is a comical. Okay. Now that was earlier, and then he said Americans should adapt to corona virus like pioneers who had to turn to cannibalism so he didn't even mention Donner Party I guess he just said that. We need to adapt like pioneers who turn to cannibalism. which as I mean? It's actually a really good metaphor. As former guests I think she's been on. Maggie fish really funny, talented performer, but she pointed out Russ limbaugh seems to not know that the only reason the Donner party happened was because they followed a liar who made terrible decisions and wasting key time windows that would have prevented the entire disaster, and also by the end it was mostly kids eating old people which is all true and hell yeah. Let's. Do what the Donner Party did seriously. Alright. The those are four things. What's trending today? That's GonNa do it for this Tuesday. We hope you guys are well Stay safe. Stay inside wash your hands. be kind to each other. Be Kind to yourself. Don't do nothing about white supremacy will be back tomorrow with a whole asset the. Together. I go by.

"At Tropical smoothie cafe. They want you to get away every day. Unwind with their watermelon. Mo- HITO and new Guava Margarita. SMOOTHIES pair one with their delicious new barbecue pork case a dea for a mini summer vacation this summer. Tropical smoothie cafe is bursting with flavor made to order with fresh quality rock ingredients with sixty Washington DC area locations.

Own. This is Ed McMahon and now he is Armstrong and getty. From, Studio C. Season your you know what it is dimly lit room deep within the bowels of the Armstrong and Getty Communications compound. Everybody kicked off a brand new week, happiness or under the tutelage of our general manager. No. I. Don't know happiness. Is Happiness. Show we have. Some sarcasm there. This is the post happy world. We live. Out Post. Wow. That's the sort of idiotic slogan sound experiment that it can be big. Paper jobs. We live in a post happy world. have. Let's not sophisticated. Enough opposed joy. I don't believe will ever have joy. I'm looking at a headline on the TD. Down! Man That that woman blasted right height as a drum right. They're nice job banned some looking at their wichita. Kansas emerging is new virus hotspot well I have a relatives in that town and My niece, who was sent home from work a couple of weeks ago because somebody tested positive at the restaurant she works at. And so she got test and she came back negative. But. She's been really sick the last three days which she doesn't happen often near eighteen. You know you don't get really sick for three days when you're eighteen like hardly ever and so they're wanting to get another test in taking a couple of days before they're going to be able to get that accomplished before to get a test, because it ain't that easy to get a test and then might take five six seven eight days to get the results depending on the kind of test you get Ryan. It's meanwhile you've been shedding virus like son of a gun if you got the VIBE A me. Read you one paragraph. This is from I. Believe The Wall Street Journal. They did a long article about the coronavirus numbers from the weekend which will get into later and all that sort of stuff you know our goal has got to be as always to try to bring some clarity to a bunch of the stories that happened over the weekend. Because it's it's, it's so hard, and everybody is so deep down. The road of advocacy gotta I have to go like three or four newspapers to try to come up with a conclusion of what happened right if there's a story, but anyway. There's summarizing paragraph about the Kobe was the upshot more than five months after the first confirmed corona virus descend the United States, so we're five months in since the first death feels like five years. Go on, yeah, the virus is spreading throughout the country more quickly than ever, and some experts think the country has little to show for the hard work in economic costs incurred during the broader lockdown in the spring. Did. We get much for our nine trillion dollars that we spent. Might? Not Be much might not be anything. It turns out in the long run. The. It's hard to say. We flattened the curve whether the curve would have been flat enough anyway. We don't know where it's getting unflattering. We would have just gotten there sooner without spending nine trillion dollars, although remember the realism, the perfectly reasonable realism at the beginning was. We can't overwhelm the hospitals. That evolved into. We've got to prevent every case. We got to prevent every illness. which you know is noble as far as it goes, but it's just wildly unrealistic. I think and now maybe we're back to look. It's too brutal and costly to try to prevent every illness. We have to go back to flattening the curve. a philosophies a motivator. Seven state set death records last week, not cases but deaths okay seven states. Now you got my attention. Yeah, the case stuff. I don't even listen to the fact that the the media hits you. Those headlines is just what the frequent. What you. What are you up to? What he? Wants to give me some information. It's like setting citing rather A. Voluntary Click Internet poll. Do you think the president's doing a great job? Yes or no? You might as well it's not randomized does not statistically valid yet wildly varied levels attesting. It's just idiotic, right? And yet, and yet to point that out as we have is is a revolutionary. You know the thing to do know what he's talking about that. Nobody wants to admit that it has been summarized and testing, but that doesn't explain that we okay. You've all heard this before. It's just frustrating like you say you've got to do so much homework. Even get a realistic idea. What's going on well? The big headline over the weekend was that Florida broke the single a record for the number of cases out there broke New York's record well yet got to point out that the percentage of people coming back tested positive. Is Way lower than it was in new. York at the time, so it's it's not. It's not as close to the kind of crisis that it wasn't New York. They've got that many more tests. You just you have to look another Intel me this as as a human being who doesn't want to be dead and I think there's a fairly large coalition of us. Learn of my family members well right? Certainly not I would like to know okay of those cases in Florida. What is the age distribution? How severe to the cases seem to be, are they seventy five percent thirty years old, and under folks who seem to be fine and were surprised. They've got the vid this white. Why can't we get a little more data? A much more clear picture I mean it's just so blurry. So you're fourteen day rolling average, remember a week or so ago where we're talking about how cases were up ninety percent, but deaths were down twenty percent What gives well? Here's your fourteen day rolling average now cases are up fifty percent, but they are up twenty five percent, so the deaths are starting to climb. are are they gonNA start matching those cases here in the next week or so well, it's the directions going right now and again seven states said death records last week, which is not good. Yeah. That's interesting because I'm looking at the national statistics and we're still way way down. We are were probably at something, a little under seven hundred when the peak was twenty, three hundred. The Rolling Average is up twenty five percent when it was down even a week ago, so we'll see where we end up, but It Ain't good it definitely and good and I sure hope it is not true that five months and nine trillion dollars in. We've not accomplished much. It's worse than it's ever been. that's not true. Well, what what's frustrating to me? I hate to go on the record saying anything, because at some point and I pray it six months, but it might be a year or five years or ten years. We will look back and it will be clear you know fairly clear. What should happen could happen. You know what was inevitable. What wasn't we just have no clue now, so you really risk sounding like an idiot. In the midst of this and I have a fair amount of sympathy for our fathers and mothers in the halls of power. Because they they have to be at least partially feeling at least partially blind to they don't know what to what to do or what to expect. Everybody's guessing. Anyway it will bring up to speed a much different things. Trump's big pardon. What's going on with China CETERA ET CETERA? Oh, back to the whole. Oh, we got introduced money squad. Come on priorities. Of It will still be here. Unfortunately ten minutes God will be here in ten months I. Don't know I was asking a buddy over the weekend all right. When we ought to have a pool on the show. Give me the date of the next time in the United States. There is a sports game played with more than ten thousand people in the stands. Give me. That date will be April one twenty twenty one opening day baseball. Will Be Golf Tournament in July, will it be the year twenty twenty-nine? I. I remember March April whenever it was. Somebody canceled something for the rest of twenty. I thought really premature. Crazy. Yeah, canceling for the rest of the year will now seems. The are we gonNA, have schools open and I didn't I didn't think it was a question that my kids going to school next year for the next year to completely a question. Anyway, let's introduce everybody and get going. There's our board operator Michelangelo. Pressing buttons flipping toggles pulling levers sorry this morning. Life pretty good I guess the Washington redskins are going to change their name today. They're gonNA. Have some big announcement. Oh, they name! Yeah, but I haven't heard yet so. Well, it's kind of exciting. Yeah, just well. The trying to get off Cova trying to. Back to back to race relations. Run, that's relaxing hate. Each other based on the Gulliver skin man. Was! I I do like the worn out old joke that the name The Washington Redskins, it obviously contains a word that fills people with horror and disgust, and so they're changing the name to the Virginia Redskins. Aw good one sir, and are a whole bunch of a p people and things getting canceled over the weekend more those crazy stories of forgiveness say they're just amazing. Anyway. There's positive. Sean who smile lights up the room. How are you sean doing very well? was a great weekend for movies. There were two movies that dropped the this past week. And both of them originals of the streaming platform. They they run. Run on both of these movies were absolutely the sort of thing that I would have gone out to the theater to see you know in the back when that was the thing, I one on Netflix's called the old guard, the stars Charlene's there on this is both of these movies are rated R. Not for the young ones. This is an action movie. A covert team of immortal mercenaries stop I'm all in. Mercenaries. We've for adults need to finish reading. It's rated. Art Is for adult show. And the other one palm, springs is a comedy starring Ambi Sandberg, and I feel the the less you know about this movie going in the better there you go, but it is, it is wonderful. I loved new, platforms. On Hulu Sorry Hulu I don't have the Hulu. I. Don't think I had it up until recently, but I wasn't using it enough, so I canceled the but. canceled. Culture I think that's something. Different. I had too many things to many subscription so I had to cancel some of them Oh. Yeah, that reminds me. I don't know if I should do this on air off foot. I got a little email from the good folks at Apple. Shout out to Apple Beautiful Cupertino California or the state is still the most. Valuable Company on Earth goes day to day with Amazon but maybe next week we'll see But I saw a charge for five ninety nine, a monthly charge for such and such a plus service and I thought. I've never signed up for that. Ask Judy she hadn't texted all the kids. Nobody had any idea what I was talking about. But we're getting hit six bucks a month and trust me I. Don't want to name it for reasons that will mel. I just don't want to name it But Trust me, I would know if I signed up for this. Very strange. How come you don't want to name it? Maybe. We work for them. All right. I don't I. Don't want I. Don't want to raise any dust. We don't work for porn hub. Kings plus. A little weekend work with them. Consulting on their audio. I'm Jack Armstrong. He's Joe Getty on this. How did it already get to be Monday July, thirteenth the year two thousand twenty, where Armstrong and getting? We approve this program you know what I ought to do. There's no need for it anymore. Because there's plenty but writing music for portions that be a satisfying is their music in pornography now. I. Don't know thought about it. Why was there ever I I don't know that either help sets the mood. Let's be sure yeah, same reason. There's a music any cinema. Right Moot Center all right, let's begin the show officially now. According to FCC rules regulations here we go at mark the week before that you tweeted in all caps. Seriously people stop buying masks. You said they were not effective. Do you regret saying that? Well it's important for people to understand that once upon a time, we prescribe cigarettes for as. And leeches and cocaine and heroin for people at medical treatments. When we learn better, we do better. I thought that was quite an answer. From the wizards in general surgeon general. Yeah, man, he does not inspire counties leeches. Wait. Wait wait a minute. That's one of the most extraordinary things I've ever heard. That's what I thought. That was on face the nation what? was a few months leeches. Important for people to understand that once upon a time, we prescribe the cigarettes for as mathematics and Leeches and cocaine and heroin for people of Medical Treatments. When we learn better, we do better okay. Moving out from Leeches, moving on from not masks demasked right? It doesn't sound at all like a guy who's just absolutely caught. In the end. You know policies. Oh that's great. How does mail bag look how it's crap? Crap like everything else is crap. No, I think it's okay. We've lost the ability to print so I. got it all laid out. I think we're ready to go, and it's the end of joy. Is that what we've? been living in a post joy. Armstrong and Getty The Charles Barkley takes on the NBA for their idea putting. Political messages on the back of their jerseys. And get into that a little bit later on the whole sports front okay. Start here in a couple of weeks, right chuck always has an independent. And thoughtful take. And often hilarious mailbag. There's not a lot of hilarity. We're living in a post. Hilarity World Jack. Host Feminine World. That is funny, oddly enough Ian from Tijuana. Sending along a great freedom-loving quote of the day I was gonNA. Continue longer series with. Thomas. Sowell but we'll do that tomorrow. I love this bill. Vaughan said this. Is a writer. If there's anything the nonconformist hates more than a conformist. It's another nonconformist doesn't conform the prevailing standard nonconformity. So true so true. Another frequent correspondents Turlock Hall. I believe that to be a nom. De Bloom. he has a bunch of stuff to say. Hey, let's get onto the truth grenade. You guys are throwing around. Returning it, did he? You're turning to using the term puritanical. You like that visit revisit horrifying past puritanical. And how this leads to gruesome NECE, keep hammering blasphemy laws. We're talking about if you say the wrong thing these days, no matter your intent, no matter your feelings, no matter your character, no matter your history as a human being. If you blaspheme, you will be ruined at least were not stoning people to death yet in the United States. Although one gal was beaten to death by a mob the other day, the the media's not talking about it, but perhaps we will keep hammering the fact that in the Soviet Union. North Korea China etc. There's only one party and how? The idea to have just one party is very popular these days, and and maybe it's my party. Maybe Cheer Party, but yeah people are comfortable with that idea, which is which is terrible Let's see well, I suppose that's enough. He has has a lot to say. yeah, okay. That's enough of that. And moving along again I apologize. wasn't able to print. This is a great editorial. I don't have time to read it. It's about two kids from the same neighborhood. one of whom grows up to be an NFL star, another kid, not so fast, not so big, not so strong enlists in the army in their different lives in their different attitudes, and then the whole kneeling during the anthem to attitudes about it, and it's a very good. We'll posted at Armstrong and getty DOT COM, moving powerful, Armstrong and getty. At Tropical, smoothie cafe. They want you to get away every day. Unwind with their watermelon Mojo.

The Armstrong and getty show. Seen? CONC-. Always thought David French and Charles Barkley should get to hang out more often than talk politics. That's a former hall of fame basketball player, noise, current hall of fame, former basketball player. There you go. Charles Barkley then Anna. Perhaps you don't know him. right wing, ish conservative Christian thinker who said the same things over the weekend about all the energy from the whole. We need to reform the police. We've got a problem with racial justice stuff. All the energy now is going into nonsense, non-sensitive, virtual, sick, virtual signaling, or nitpicking stupid little things. I've got so many examples I can bring you for instance the lyric LE-. Let me just throw this in or gigantic policy proposals that have nothing to do with policing racism. I've got so many examples I can hit you with people having to step down from their their boards or businesses, being attacked, or whatever or this sort of thing, macdowell colony drops the word colony I'd never heard of the artist's retreat called macdowell colony, but it's been around since nineteen o seven in some of the the greatest writers thinkers in American history have gone to this like in the woods retreat. You ever heard of artist colony or a nudist colony. Or colony gets used in a lot of things. It's got nothing to do with oppression just outposts. Well the act, the actual dictionary definitions got to do with a group of people getting together Blah Blah Blah but whatever right. It's got nothing. Colony dropped the word. Is. Under great pressure from artists who said they would no longer retreat there? Is Irs thing. But. See this sort of. Stupid Direction for energy isn't accomplishing anything I know. I. I'm Kinda like. And Charles Barkley. The basketball player talked a little bit about that with the NBA, which is starting here in a couple of weeks. where I think what's happening now this we turn it into a circus You know we spend all our time instead of talking about racial equality and racial justice economic justice. We spend all our time. What about WHO's near Lincoln? WHO's building What what things are being said on buses What's being said on jerseys. I think we're missing the point. We need a police reform. We need prison reform, and we'd be adults at number, two one and two things. We need to focus on Go where we need to constantly need to grit cops out there. Police in the bad cops like I say we need opposite. We need police reform and prison reform, but the media you know you. We all got a job to do, and they're gonNA. Spend all their time on West on somebody's Jersey and West on the busters, and who's kneeling, and who's not nearly and GonNa Defeat. The purpose of my concern is this. Thing a circuit instead of trying to do some good stuff. Last week the NBA announced players playing in the Orlando bubble will be allowed to wear preapproved social justice related messages in place of their last names on their jerseys and I'm out phrases like black lives. Matter I can't breathe. Inequality are some examples. Charles Berkeley went on to say sports used to be a place for fans could go and get away from reality. People just lost their jobs. In the last thing they want to do is turn on their television to hear arguments about stuff all the time. It's going to be very interesting to see how the public reacts. Well I can tell you how a lot of the public's GonNa React Oh. Yeah, yeah, well, you know when it comes down to this, editorialize talking about it's an essay in advocating a boycott of the NFL in in the long short of it is contrast. The two boys who grew. Grew up in the same neighborhood. One Who is big strong and fast became football star, the other enlisted in the army, and their differing feelings about the flag and kneeling and the rest of it, but it ends up with saying essentially You know we admire you guys we. We buy the tickets we watch on TV. We were the jerseys. We marvel at your skill. We love to watch you play and you have the absolute right to express yourself, but we have the absolute right Sinatra. If. You're going to make this political in divisive an uncomfortable. and to me it's the difference. Between Your an NFL player, you absolutely have the right to advocate whatever you want. Say whatever you want, but not at work on Sunday. I just don't think you do any more than you all made him. should be making strenuous political statements to our coworkers all the time. Or to our customers, can you imagine that you're a paint store? Guy Walks in. He needs five gallons. I say only if you're down with trump. I fired then. They grabbed me by the scrub the neck and hurl me out the front door. That stuff is supposed to not be in the workplace. For good or ill? Yeah, either way so does this is. And it's not the point of this was not about sports, although I'm excited about the The NBA come back in a couple of weeks, but it's just one of many places that I think the The the the the conversation is going to be all around. Half the board of the National Book Critics Circle. Award stepped down last week because they put out a statement in support of black lives matter, but some of the people thought it didn't go far enough, and then started claiming that this board has always been a white supremacist organization. All boy, a whole bunch of the board said whatever I'm out so I don't need this need this. So sue from NBA basketball to to poetry foundations to writers colonies to whatever you can come up with, I'm not sure these little particular things are doing anybody any good whatsoever in fact, I'm pretty sure they're not I and probably doing the opposite right. I mean all those people who stepped down from that board I suppose some did it out of misplaced white guilt, or whatever but a lot of them are thinking okay. I don't i. don't need this headache. And they became less engaged in any reasonable and useful conversation, but if someone, that's you know, I've often. Often said I said to my children. We've talked about religion and and people will bring up. Do you think there's a god or Blah Blah Blah? And then they'll they'll talk about the Catholic Church, for instance, the Child, rape, and Buckman whatever or the hypocrisy of this group, or the fundamentalism of this, and I've always said human beings can screw up anything. You put Homo Sapiens in the middle of anything, and they will mess it up including the relationship between man and God, so that's just not good evidence to me, and so you have a handful of psychopaths. In an uncertain number, racist cops and everybody decides. We gotta do something about this. It's not. It's not fair. It's not American GIF psychopaths kneeling on people's necks, wearing the badge of our town or our city, or whenever we all agree gung, Ho and three later, it's just completely screwed up. Nobody knows you got Marxists. Getting millions of dollars from giant corporations were just a quick check of black lives. Matter. We gotTA look like we're down with people, and so it's just become completely insane. Jamie Lee courtesy actress tweeted over the weekend. Sure, this'll via elevating in case you thought two thousand twenty couldn't get any worse. Marian Webster just officially recognized irregardless is a word. Wait a minute. That pleases me. That's pretty funny. Did you hear I'm just going through my notes because I got a lot of from the weekend, the bombshell that came out of the Johnny Depp Emma heard trials on Friday s about the what was found in the bed. This is what finally ended their marriage. I'm happy to say I miss the story of the weekend. He said what D- The son in London wrote a story saying. Saying he's a wife Beater. Because of the way, their lives with laws, work and everything he's suing them. And now they're having a big giant court case in which he's there testifying every day and his ex wife is too, and it's just gotten crazy, but anyway the last Straw. Apparently when he decided, we gotta get a divorce when she out of anger, he claims pooped their own boy. Oh, by now that's a gesture. Now I saw the headline that he gave her. A amber heard a nickname because of this. Oh no and I. Help the relationship. No, no, no rhymes with her last name. Though oh Ambert oh. My answer, those poor kids. They can patch it up. Make it work. What chance do the rest of? This was allegedly a protest on her parts. That's what he's claiming that she was mad and so she went and I've never been that left him a gift in bed. Good. Matt but I've not been that man. BED POOP! I can't someone up that kind of. On, command anyway, well I'll show you. Yes, this will. This will make my point and and help our relationship. I think I will exactly. I think you'll truly understand my feelings about this issue when I defecate in our bed. That's extraordinary again. Drug crazed Hollywood. Stars can't make it. Who Can San? Diego Mercury News with the headline Johnny, Depp Amber heard fought over pu left in bed. Thank you. And the headline twenty twenty was missing well. It's hard to agree on the pool left in bed. You're GONNA have different points of view. That's true. That's. She sang in ever happened one one ambivalent. That seems exactly exactly enough on that. She says it never happened the tall incorrect. No evidence. I don't know all right. Yeah! Okay moving along Boeing that clawson moving along. Boy We'll get into some of the numbers on covert across the country coming up some of them that are exaggerate. Some of them that probably aren't. And The frig knows where this is going. Oh another example of how insane our college campuses are coming up at some point. I'm going to have to work my way up to that I just. I don't know so much craziness. So Donald Trump pardoned roger stone on Friday. Commuted his sentence in lotteries, formally speaking and a lot of people went wh- mad. over about it went wild and the Wall Street Journal point out a couple of things in their editorial. The editorial board that I thought was really good. I'm curious to hear that a lot of conservatives are pretty uncomfortable with the meeting of the Senate. Wish he hadn't, but they'd to point out a couple of things about the history of presidents and commuting and pardons. No this totally unprecedented as being I heard that on MSNBC. Anything like this in the history of the world or the universe. As far as we know, that's not not not accurate. I realize you're using sarcastic tone of was. Picked right up on that. Leave a message in your bed. Is your insensitive Louis, but now okay? Clarify that story somewhat among others coming up. Artist. The Armstrong and getty show. This Guy Roger Stone Old Guy He was going to go to jail for three and a half years prison, and he's got a giant Nixon Tattoo on his back, right. Back that's quirky. He's been doing untoward things in politics for decades and decades and decades, and he's rat flanker. He got caught on line under oath number of things and Favorite description of him I believe it was John. Oliver described his fashion sense as business scoundrel. I'd say it's a good phrase. Is Funny Yeah? And so trump commuted his sentence on Friday now. The guy's not gonNA. You're supposed to show up to prison tomorrow now. He's GonNa. Not show up to prison tall her way, which is You know exciting if you're him. Mitt Romney. Among. A small number of people. Who At least out loud or unhappy about this in the Republican ranks Mitt Romney tweeted unprecedented historic corruption. An American president can meet the sentence of a convicted by a jury of lying to shield that very president. That's a pretty strong tweet, but I saw these headlines. Republicans are upset to make use them at Romney Tweeden say. Well, let's kind of it, but. Mitt Romney who hates trump right? And he's trying to set himself up as the never trump of powerbroker slash leader, but I thought this was worth pointing out since if he took any news over the weekend, it was never ending on the left and anti Pelosi went on about it, being corruption at the highest level in this man, Adam, schiff, and the usual players in the whole Russian saga of pardons in presidents, this is from the editorial board of the Wall Street Journal. Say This for President Trump's commutation of Roger Stone's forty month prison sentence late Friday. At least it did it during an election campaign, so voters can add this to the ledger of character issues. They take into the voting booth. Skip point. Else about his presidency at scandals, real and imagined are public. It is an excellent point actually because a number of more. Mentioned here are done it late at night. Right before noon January twentieth when nobody's paying any attention or can say a word about it, and you can't be held to account in. That was my question was. How normal is it to do these things not on your last day of off. These are not normal at all or even the day after the election. Election Right? There's an urgency to it. Yeah, just you know. Let's not do this until after the vote, but going on as cries of corruption and cronyism joined the Presidential Club Mr. trump views the world in terms of political friends and enemies, and the commutation rewarded a friend that is a an abuse of pardon power in our view, says the Wall Street Journal. I'm not having that it. either. I'd rather, he didn't, but they go on to say, but we recall Bill Clinton's last minute January two thousand one pardon of Susan, McDougal, who went to jail for contempt rather than tell prosecutors what she knew about. Mr Clinton's Whitewater transactions worse. Mr Clinton made public comments in the autumn of ninety-six. That suggested Ms.. Mcdougal could expect the pardon she received that history is now whitewashed away by a press corps that talks is if the pardon power was a sacred trust. Before Mr, trump took office. Sure yeah, it's all nasty, so if you're hearing the stories that. Yeah he stone had made it clear that if he doesn't he prison time, he's GonNa release. Some nasty stuff for trump and trump commuted his sentence well. That's exactly what Bill Clinton did with Susan McDougal McDougal and a bunch of his legal problem. doesn't make it good, or and it was decried by Republicans at the time, but don't act. Never happen well. Don't state over and over. Over again unequivocally that it's never happened like they're doing on the alphabet the wall. Street Journal goes on Mr. Trump, has also scored for not following Justice Department Protocol on pardons, but that's precisely what Mr Clinton didn't pardoning Marc rich in two thousand one. Does anyone recall that Barack Obama commuted the sentence of an unrepentant Puerto Rican terrorist, who had become a cause celeb- on the political. Political left and of Chelsea manning leaks jeopardized American troops and Afghan translators, fighting the Taliban Nancy Pelosi claims to be so upset by the stone commutation that she's considering legislation to restrict the presence pardon power. She surely knows that no speaker of the House is above the law, which means article of US Constitution that makes the pardon power as close to categorical as anything in the great. Great document means she can't touch it, but for some reason she never introduced such a bill when democratic presidents were pardoning their friends right right? It's flaming hypocrisy and listen I'm not proud of this. Because Roger Stone I'm sure would fill me with disgust and loathing were I to deal with them. I just don't like that kind of guy on the other hand. I've become so cynical. So Roger. Stone lied to Adam Shifts Committee, did he? Oh, I'm just heartbroken. Over that that festival of lies and dishonesty and deceit and Adam Schiff hinting not hinting stating darkly over and over I've seen classified evidence that makes it infinitely clear that the trump campaign colluded with Russia and he lied the whole time so the. Tennis Neck I've ever seen. Him with his pencil neck the fact that. Democrats on the committee could lie like rugs for months and months. I'm sorry I just can't get outrage that Roger Stone said. no-nobody called me from Wikipedia Wicca would never heard of them now. We competed wikileaks. Never forget about it, but as Wall Street. Journal points out just to reiterate. They believe what trump did on. Friday isn't abuse of the pardon power. They say let's Pur- not pretend that it doesn't get done on a regular basis. Right by Republicans and Democrats right so there are serious. Well Yeah ooh! Principles are like jackets. They take them off. They put him on. Depends if they need something to do it. One hundred days before a presidential election though. Oh, yeah, supposed to wait and see gravelly ballsy well. It's partly because the old Raj stone is about to go to prison. Tomorrow. Yeah, he's an old man and ABC about the vid right? Yeah, I'll bet he is. I wonder if trump said him look do six months. I'll party in November. I guess that wouldn't even be six months and Rogers no no Mr President Sir. Destruct. Just not give a damn I. Don't think he thinks as much as you just did about it. Okay I think that's where I am currently I. Don't know. So listen, this is disappointing news chain topic here, not surprising but disappointing. There are already fake covid contract tracers scamming people. We haven't even gone that contact tracing up and running. Really you know. Could all in for that I could have fallen for that? Yeah, if you if you give me. An email or a phone call. Yeah, we'll tell you what they're saying and what? The scam is in a little bit Earth Cleveland it started now there are people are scampers. Were we believe you are in contact with Johnson? Who was at the shelves? Oh Boy, Shell station I've got a story about what happened at the gas station. The other day Corey I came as close as I've ever been to being in a hell of a fight. Oh boy! Oh ugly! Wow, is it because you're escorting gas all over the place to cleanse it before you, Gasa and it ends with the owner of the store yelling.

This is Tom. Click hosted the citizenship podcast throughout Kobe our restaurant community has been struggling especially black owned restaurants. That's why discover is giving five million dollars to support black owned restaurants. One of my favorite restaurants is field trip by chef Jay Johnson. It's in Harlem. New York and I gotta say the food is amazing, and he is a huge part of the community there. Check out. DISCOVER DOT COM to learn more. Me Fox sports radio. This is straight out of AENGUS. With the Voice of big your host Rj. Aw. The Pre game show America has always wanted. From the Vegas Strip. EARS RJ. Heard it I'm RJ live from LAS? Vegas live on a Tuesday live on two hundred twenty five FSR stations across his great great nation sports batters listen for the money sports. Fans listen to no more than their bodies. I'm a pro. I can't lie Jonas is not. He's Joe in L.. A. Jones knocks always good to be here. Are John Yes on a Dan which we've got concern in major league baseball. NFL players reporting to training camp. WHAT IS THE VEGAS? Lead here on this Tuesday? When you win six superbowls, and a bunch of people decide not to play by choice. It's gotta be the lead. Yeah, several NFL players have decided to opt out for the twenty twenty season due to their corona virus concerns, including six New England patriots most notably starting linebacker, dont`a hightower multiple super bowl winner with the Patriots and also starting safety Patrick. Chung. Has Multiple Super Bowl. Fair now. Right so first off. I think amongst the national host I am certainly in the core tau of not being player. I'd say kiss, but okay you know I'm a little harder probably on the players. I in this case, I'm not hard on them at all. I think it's very fair. If you're going to have the proper ramification meaning financially. They're going to suffer for it industrial making a decision. and to me, that is the American way. That's the human way, right? You got a freedom. Make your decision. The fact that there's life you know in a way, you could say life and death. though obviously how I think is probably the better way to say at potentially at stake I think it's hard to say Oh, you're not a team guy, or it's hard to say you know you're not dedicated I I think in general. Everyone's got their own situation and every player has their own. Perspective neuroses to be honest, right? I mean think about Howard. Hughes Guide. You know bill a lot of the Modern Vegas, obviously a famous fellow for his pack billows of not wanting ever mean anyone for. Twenty years is him in seclusion at the Desert Inn. That guy became a billionaire before that, so it's like all. Oh, if you're an idiot, you've got neuroses. A lot of people have them and my you know. Hey. Some people might be particularly sensitive about their health and meaning. Everyone should care about their health, but some people you know Jonas I I don't WanNa, say it, but like use hand sanitizers nonstop obsessively I mean so you. You're sympathetic to those kind of concerns. Right obviously listen. I was living this life long ago. Welcome to my world, everybody. Now have you gotten worse with it now I, just really no difference so. At the exact same way about germs in the middle of a pandemic as you did any other day. Yeah, the only difference is I. Wear a mask I'll wear masks by never wore mass before, but yeah, everything's the same rather than that. Do you think that there's a correlation between how good looking someone is and their inclination to wear a mask I would probably think so especially out. La I would think so. It's great. You deadpan yet. I think so because. Jason Whitlock was on Clay Travis I think it was yesterday. I was listening to the PODCAST, and he was talking about swinging by Vegas and he goes. I'm not real excited about it. He goes GONNA. Be Masks on, so I can't really see all the pretty girls. I, mean listen. The guy does I mean he's telling what's in his heart, right? Let's give him credit there I'm RJ, both straight out of Vegas, but that is fascinating. Right because at the beach. If someone has a six pack their shirts off. Not only at the beach is off at the Kager of. Walking around the gym. Drinking drinking the the Jews but then to do with the pot belly, you know he's got the tank top on at the at the beach. So to me, the seems correllated. Yeah, but the reality is in my. And my opinion. We can talk and I think we need to talk about wh. Why the Patriots were have a disproportionate number, but I think in general Kudos to the NFL that they made this A. Paint as painless is reasonable with the what one hundred thousand dollars stipend The contract doesn't run, so they seem to really say if you feel this, you should do it, and I think the players. They should get credit for doing what they feel is right. What do you think yeah I? Agree I think this is one of those situations to where everybody's got a choice to make a decision to make certain people have fears and legitimate fears with all. All this, and so you have to just understand. It's a weird time. It's a strange time for a lot of people, and not everybody is dealing with the realities of having a loved one who is sick or compromise that they're looking after taking care of, and that should always be the first concern over playing an NFL game. No matter what is a sports show. We haven't gotten into this topic, but I think it bears mentioning is the idea that. A lot of people were very disturbed by the isolation and especially considering you know, imagine now. Obviously, there was a lot of husbands and wives that would disturb being locked up like that a lot of kids I mean imagine I can't imagine being sixteen or seventeen. Can you know I mean Oh my Gosh I'm? Doing it drive through. Yeah! Weird, which that's a shame for the key. But I'm saying if you were. Let's say a year or two younger and like it's easy. Just want nothing more than be out of that house you know. Normal thing when you're you know especially. If you're a boy, I think I think both if you're fifteen, sixteen got that license and now it's like you can't leave. Yeah, so rough, but let's be candid. Everyone handles things differently. I I'm the type that likes to I'm married, but I like to read. I like to do research and I don't I'm not know to me when I'm out I'm out, right. It's like you know I'm going to the Strip. I'm playing poker. I'm doing my thing or you know like some people every night. Want you know my best Buddy Lee? Is in Dallas now. He's a tight that he could go out twenty straight nights. Not The party, but go have dinner now. Go to a movie, and some people are much more social, I think I mean in general. You Pie fall on the social side of the equation. Right not so much. I'm like Yeah I. Don't you know there's nothing I'm not going? Jim was causing connection fit. I actually I've learned just different exercises things to do at home, so I just realized all right. That's not an option so instead of sitting around and complaining about it. Figure it out how you going to remedy the situation until I just looked into alternative ways to work out and things like that, and and I just adjust to do it and wasting time complaining. Complaining about it I've just never been a fan of that and I feel like a lot of people took that approach to where they comp- complained. threw a fit and it's like look. They're not GONNA adjust the entire pandemic outlook on things, just because you need to go to your bicep curls, Tuesdays and Thursdays, I mean you gotta figure it out so I Was, my approach. This is no nonsense Jonas. De Straight out of Vegas now to me, though let's just accept the fact that different people responded differently this and who knows that you might think Oh, a rich player. He's fine, maybe not right. Maybe some of these players get a little discombobulated. And now they wanted to catch your breath either way. This is not A. Once a year thing. This is hopefully not a once a decade thing. This is a once a century thing at least historically. Knock on wood, so I'm not going to overcharge and again I pride myself on saying this about the players they should be how a standard similar to a conventional civilian a normal guy normal gal. Not Better, not worse right, so I'm going to say your professional athlete. You should be doing that. No, this isn't about that. Plane with pain may be. Is You know those things you can say? Go with being a professional athlete I? Don't think this is one of them so I. Complete Freedom of choice in my opinion with no criticism also NFL. Let's give him a thumbs. The NFL, for whatever reason I don't know if it's Jonas are perceived to be the most conservative in the media, obviously isn't but the amount of criticism that they seem to get perpetually about like the owners just want money it's what do you think they want? It's a business, but again it feels like the owners here were very accommodating. Wouldn't you agree about people making this decision? I totally agree. I think this is i. think that's what was maybe surprising to a lot of people. And maybe it's because they saw what happened in major league. Baseball and sort of the back and forth and the fighting, and they've seen the NFL in recent years and players speak out against you know the CBA. They had going for him and players speaking out against players who? Who didn't vote for for the latest CBA which caused it to pass? And some players and veteran players are upset with it, and yet here we are in the middle of everything, and it seemed like in a matter of seventy two hours any issue they had was resolved, and they had a season in a schedule and testing setup, which was impressive like Bruno San Martino said it's going to happen the easy way or the hard way. NFL is the WW at the time. He W AFC champion and The more money there is at stake, the easier these things are now. That seems counter intuitive. But usually the big fights happen when they're scraps. When there's not as much to fight over when there's so much to fight over in a way, no one wants to risk too much right so the NFL is accommodating or the owners commenting accommodating, and then they become hardcore. It's a beautiful I mean to me. It's the best negotiation you can do. because. At least the other person knows your genuine if you give up on. On this, and that not important fine, but when you care about something, and that's something you do at the beginning. I think a lot of people love negotiation, tips or business tips get great feedback on I. I don't Overdo it but persuasions one of my strong suits and what I would say is this is if you have to business with the party again, right? It's not just transaction like buying a car. It's not only. How how you split the money up, or however you turn out on the transaction. It's also what happens. What's the aftermath and so by being straight and come in and saying these are things I, really care about other stuff you know I wanNA I. WanNa be generous with the other side's GonNa probably do the same thing, and if they don't you know, you might not have the right partner so I think the NFL and the players get a ton of credit. I'm Rj both straight OUTTA VEGAS now the big. Hood He'd elephant in the room. Is Why so many patriots where you think. I just think that may be without Tom. Brady there. It feels like it's just different and the motivation WanNa come back and play without Brady. Maybe isn't there for some guys, but wouldn't you say that it's super reasonable to say that? Cam Newton in two thousand twenty is probably a comparable quarterback to see Tom Brady. Two Thousand and nineteen the I I would agree with that I just think Brady's impact on that team outside of just on the field I. IT seems a little odd that so many patriots are choosing to do this unless they all had a zoom. Colin just said Hey, man. Mike concerns are just like your concerns, but you know conspiracy to me makes me wonder if there's. There's something about Tom Brady. Not being there that makes them less willing to want to go through the grind this year will let's do this up next. We'll finish that topic. We'll talk about the baseball outbreak and we got something on the clippers man. We know the clippers don't seem to be overly concerned about the basketball games. The odds have adjusted drastically.

The fan coming up here in just a couple of moments we will continue to take a closer look at the players opting out of this season in the NFL, and within a couple minutes it will be may be the strongest Colin his crazy. You get the alliteration they're calling is crazy. I've ever had. We've had about ten of them. This is the big one. So I'm a little worried, it's going to be I got tell the truth great day to join us. This is the fastest growing show on Fox sports radio. Our audience is doubled in the last year. We thank you so much for that. And we promised best football season yet, and by the way we continue bottom of the hour with the previews. We did number thirty two in the NFL yesterday number thirty one today, and guess what number thirty tomorrow and we got a lot of tape from FAZ on number thirty one coming up in just a few minutes, you can listen to us on the iheartradio APP right now in Las Vegas excessive heat, warning one hundred and seven degrees. degrees. The neon is coursing so RJ discussing last segment here on Fox sports radio the players in the NFL that are opting out of the twenty twenty season, due to their concerns with the Kuroda virus, including six of them, members of the New England patriots, so the whole Tom Brady. Thing is fascinating because I. Remember Steven Jackson, former spur, being on the heard maybe a year and a half ago, and he said the following the Popovich that seems to be the coach now who? Pretty much ran one of the best players in the NBA not random out of town, but somehow was 'cause it seems. Of qui- leaving town. It versus the guy that was unequivocally the best coach. I mean five years ago, said best coach in the NBA. I, think that answer was as quick as ballot. Check in the NFL. Would you say to offer rich? Totally not like that now. would. He said was that Tim. Duncan was the locker room sheriff the theory, being that Duncan had been there a long long time. Lot of chips so well respected so new guy comes in. He looks around and let's be honest. Popovich isn't there changing in the locker room and Guy grouse guy starts to you know, and Dunkin's. No, no, no, you know and he's the sheriff obviously not. Imposing himself too much, but it's like he he the representative of the coach in the locker room, and as soon as he wasn't there. Trouble with the players escalated greatly, and it strikes me. Why would trouble escalate while 'cause Popovich is hard knows he's a tough coach and I think I'll check could fall into that category, so maybe the element of looking over and seeing Brady's and he's putting up with it I should. That absence maybe is the biggest absence of all. Yeah, that's the one that I'm thinking about it and again this could just be. Looking to deepen do it, and maybe this is just. Do Yeah I know, and and maybe it's one of those things to where it's just you know guys have concerns and. Wives are pregnant, or they just had a child, and they want to be as safe as possible. Statistically, the hardest knows coach in the League. Having the most dropouts feels meaningful right now speaking of that. I mean listen. It's well known in the business you and calling each other, and I don't have problem with that because I just want you to be you Jonas, for the fact of the matter. Is that this? I want you to be honest about this, right? How crazy this was so. He says Yep. Players now. Bella checks not trying to win this year. And it was like what. What was the biggest you said? What was the biggest one move? The team made that was like. Wow, this team is going maybe a little against character. They're taking a flyer I mean signing cam is at the top of any list of team saying we want to win. Even if was a cultural risk football culture, etc. wouldn't you agree that New England would get high marks for that? Totally agree I don't believe in tanking or not trying to win the NFL. It exists and I think it's what we talked about yesterday with Faz. There is deferred compensation meaning. If I'm a team. That probably isn't a playoff team this year and you give me a choice. I can have a number three pick in this draft or number two pick in the next draft, right? It's like maybe around if you wait a year, I'm GONNA take it in the next draft. Because my theory is I'm not going to win now. Anyway so to me. That's not tanking. That's saying you can't win. Always just like with credit cards. Sometimes you spend it now, and you feel the pain later. Sometimes you lend money now and then you get the benefit later. I think there's a lot of that. I don't I mean look at Seattle, no rationale to why Seattle would've made the atoms straight unless they feel like now in the next couple of years is the most important, and they're willing to pay the price down the road. I don't think. What's May New England so amazing is they've never had to do that. They've just one and one and one and to me. Belch I can't imagine you know Mike. Lombardi's a friend of the show, and he's wonderful with the insights into ballot. Jackie worked for years, and he's like I text him after. What I was thinking about the bat I was thinking about Hoyer and the different. That's the quarterbacks for the PATS, and I said Hey. Do you think you know he's going to do this or do that? And he said listen the one thing you can know for sure is. He's always trying to win as hard as he can and to me if you hear about the way he works I. Mean if you see a guy out work in everyone with with I mean what? What's he got? Ten, super bowls right because multiple ones with the giants our. Maybe maybe it's not is a because. He had to the giants for some reason I. Guess The page Oh okay when it was with patriots against Green Bay in parcells was there. They lie okay. Yeah Desmond Howard okay. I remember now. That punt return, but the reality is that. Eight Super Bowl rings. I don't know where they fit and he's out working. Everyone I just can't imagine how the response is going to be I think we're probably not caring about winning too much as year right, yeah I, just I. Don't buy it for a second. If you want to say that. Lebron gave up on last season when he walked into a game drinking a couple of wine, then that's fair because that's clear. Evidence of that guy was. was you know he had other things going on? And that's one thing, but I don't see bill belichick especially at this point in his career, just given up on seasons when we don't know how much longer he's. GonNa Coach Plus I. If anything that goes against the whole narrative of these years are going to be referendums on brady versus ballot check. Yeah, right so and plus tell me the year Br. The ballot check hasn't tried to win with always might. I mean think about it. When Brady went down after an imagine having undefeated season. Except you know, so, you're eighteen and all. The Super Bowl you will go down in history as the greatest team of all time, it would be the combination of anti career. You lose that game in a coin flip, and then we'll was it the second game or the first game I. can't I think it was the first camera I is? So literally within. Twenty minutes of game time. That's five minutes of the superbowl in the first. Fifteen minutes I think it was first quarter I fifteen minutes of the opening game. You went from potentially being the greatest of all time to have in castle as your quarterback up. They've won eleven, Games and eleven games. They didn't make the playoffs, but they won eleven games. I I don't see present ever a time to take a breath. It would have been then. It doesn't seem like they. They do it and we talked about it last year. I mean look The steelers is being a recent example. Ben Rothlisberger goes down with the injury. They're starting. You know a backup or third string court. At one point they were starting some guy named duck at owner back, and not only did they not give up on the season they went out and traded a first round pick. Motivation. I mean. It was like right there too when they did that. Yeah, I, mean right. There should should tell you teams don't. They're not gonNA just tank. especially great teams that are well run. They're not just going to give up on seasons because they're thinking about the future. The steelers gave up on the future thinking about that season. That's Jenna. Songs Rj Bell is the steelers fan I would say. The following is I gained a lot of respect for Tomlin in that and I'm not a huge Tomlin guy though it's one of those is, what's the alternative, but? To me if you look at his record when the steelers are below five hundred and his ten tenure, it's unbelievable how good they are! He's a motivator. Now I think Pittsburgh's been complacent at times when they've had great teams, and those years are gone and bans. You know not what he was in. When's the next Super Bowl? Right so it's been ten. You know it's been twelve years since. Since Day One and you're thinking Oh. Woe is me, but when you got big band and you're the steelers. Yeah, you know I I don't think the over under would have been. You know what probably would have been a half after they won. The won say you're either GonNa win zero one, but you were thought to. The VIG was going to be on the over, so in general. Steel has got closing thought or but not so much Tomlin. Guy Again respect last year's record closing thought in a weird way ballot check always wanting to win. Is probably would explains. These players sit now that as much as they're wired. As much as any player may be to be a grinder Bella checks, different breed, a grinder, and if you're thinking, Hey, it's gonna be hard to win you know like win at all. which is the standard in New England and there is a risk here and I don't feel great. It kind of makes sense that the teams that work the hardest are the. Zimmer had the other big absence. Right, Triton, Minnesota and. Ironically sends. Zimmer became head coach of Minnesota. If all you did was look at the Vegas record against the spread, the number one team in the NFL Minnesota. Number to team New England, so maybe the two hardest workers, but let's call it two of the top five for sure Minnesota New England. They win, but it's not coincidental I think that when there's an option to sit. That's the teams that get people sitting because it's not a vacation when you're on the field, I'm not sure that's the case, but it's logical to me. We've got preview number thirty one and I'm going to tell you. It's The Washington.

He's the Voice Vegas Rj Bell Jonas how when they're certain guys that have a guy that carries her bag and they walk in. They got their hands free there hands then when it's time to pull out the paperwork they get handed i. feel on this show with your amazing regions. I get a little drink of water may stretch out a little bit, and then I'm ready to go, so. I'm saying that I envisioned. That's a fantasy, but I'm still in business I. mean fantasies not bad sometimes all right so what we're doing every thirty. Or for the next thirty one days count today show days. One day were missing. I'M NOT GONNA. Tell you which day that is. Not Today though it's Washington. This is the thirty first best team in phases rankings. So the worst team yesterday Jacksonville Washington. The second worse. That's both. And Vegas if you look at the Vegas. Stack rank of win totals. Does that feel right to you? Yeah. Yeah, this seems right and I mean Fez yesterday was the Jacksonville Jaguars a lot of a lot of shade. Gardner MINHSIU I mean you know? You're looking. He, he's got something that gets mentioned. That's for sure I mean Menchu's I. got a name like the stash you're not. Necessarily, right. guys the stash. No, no, so here's the numbers on Washington football team. Super Bowl odds one eighty five to one. Season Win total five wins, so think about that they go five in alive and say who who we met expectations. Four and eleven, we've Oh short six. I guess for and twelve and six and ten break out. The celebration prince is going to be on. Yeah, so low expectations division odds just to win the division thirteen to one. Just to make the playoffs five and a half to one so this is a league worst to first is no problem at all. It happens all the time. And it doesn't look like it's going to happen to Washington so. This is what I asked Fazio. I and we're going to do. This is the first thing with every team. Would is the big question. If you can have any question, adding question answered. What would it be? Let's listen. How is quarterback Haskins going to respond to the Brand New coaching staff? That's being brought in when you look at Haskins. Here's a guy really struggled last year to put it all together I seven games. He was bad, but how bad was he? In five of those seven games, he had a Qbr rated below twenty to put that in perspective, an average rating is above fifty. That's almost. Almost unheard of for quarterback to get seven starts and have five of the seven. Be that atrocious, but he turned it around at the end of the year he had to really solid games, especially the game against the giants in the final game of the year. So how long is it? GonNa take for Haskins to respond to the brand new coaching staff and bring his game up. Laura Indigo. Oh, so here's the irony that we're going to have in a minute. Our second clip is going to be. He's actually got a prop. He's actually going to prop up that he's GonNa give us a pick on. And then he's given us a force pick on Washington over or under now. To me on Haskins. It's almost. Almost ironic that the fact that he has a reputation to not be a guy crack in the midnight oil when it comes to study in the playbook. Let's say it nicely like that. In a way, that's good news, because imagine that you had the results, the performance that Haskins delivered and you had two choices. If you're Washington one, is he? Did everything right now is the best anyone could have done and that's him. The other option is he was not studying. He hardly knew the playbook. Whatever if anything, those rumors are true, it actually a good thing for Washington, because at least a chance that he would learn the playbook, or whatever for this year does that make sense? Yeah, it'd be like if all right, give me your give me your best and the fastballs in the mid eighties. To hope I'm home on the back. I'd be a static in the mid eighties to no doubt that's soon, dogs I'm RJ bell now. Let's actually do. Let's get the prop back. We're GONNA. Have to bats. We'll give one before the break and went after I very generous like that. This is one of the things we're going to do. And he's actually forced to make ten bats of the thirty two teams because that's the way I. Am I force them. This is one of them. Let's less. maclaurin go over one thousand and fifty past reception yards. He was a rookie last year. Really standout year little over nine hundred yards receiving I. Expect that he will continue to improve upon that especially, because RJ, the Washington skill position players, the wide receivers are so weak, maclaurin, arguably the only guy that should be starting in the NFL, and because of that he's going to get all kinds of targets. Okay, there's a nice profit pig there if you actually look at the. Numbers and all that literally. Seventy, being a borderline starter, not one of the. playmakers. was. Even seventy so these are like not even not even one average NFL start seventy-five except for. McLaren and The pig is air and you might say wow. They're going to get the attention and all that. But when you're the only guy you, usually it's, it's about volume inactivating. You gotTA keep in mind with these props. Some of it's about efficiency. Some of it is about how many chances you're going to get I think. In this case, it's about the chances last break coming up when we come back. Fezzan I actually disagreed strongly about something and I gave him a little heat. I can't lie. That's coming up next teeth. Rj Bell I'm Jonas stocks and it's the pre-game show.

Beverage Company Boston Massachusetts please drink responsibly I'm RJ bell. We are straight out of a Jonas knocks voice of you the fan so RJ. We're doing the countdown from thirty two all the way to one the Vegas rankings here on straight OUTTA VEGAS OF THE NFL teams, heading into the twenty twenty season number, thirty two yesterday was the Jacksonville Jaguars and number thirty one today is the Washington football team. And what were the odds that we would literally end this countdown the day before the season kicked off. I would have butchered the math. I'm glad you guys did it and listen. This might not be politically correct, but what are the odds that Lou Garrick would lou GEHRIG's disease. Yeah I, don't know. That's the Sopranos. Joke. I can't lie all right. You. Don't think that was all that bad rose it. I don't even. Say. I don't know Geez. It's a joke. It's called a joke all right speaking of that Washington now. Here's the question and we got fascist force pig in a second. How much and I'm asking. As a sports fan as the media guy. How much does all the time out the name? The sexual harassment accusations all the firing so obviously it feels like there was some truth to the accusation. Why did you fire? People otherwise be. My thought was still say allegedly. Does that affect this team. I that it affects them, but I almost wonder if in this off season it's better to have. It happened in this offseason where everything is thrown for a loop all over the league than it would be in another offseason where everybody's continuing as normal, and it's The Washington team. That's gotTa deal with this distraction, but couldn't you say this is compounding? It's not like these distractions. Distractions take away from the normal Cova distractions for Washington. Yeah, and and I would also say that if you are a skeptic of Dwayne, Haskins the fact that in an off season when he's really tried to prove that he's the guy, and now not only does he have to deal with a quarterback. They traded for from Carolina but then the return of Alex Smith. Who? is going to be rooting for and Ron Rivera came out today and said Alex Smith is going to compete for a starting quarterback job so I. I don't think if any first round pick is worried about flipper. Alan with his head in his hands are tiny. I don't think in listen I think if anything they went with flipper island, not to have someone breathing down Haskins back because the reality is, you gotta get the quarterback right I mean if you think about the teams that have done it in a way that showed how much they cared. Let's put Arizona Front and center. This is a team that that had what the tenth pick on a quarterback within A. A year a lot of people could the coach wasn't great. They fired him after one year. Lot of people could have said Oh the line was horrendous, which it, what? No, they said he has chance. And then they went with the number. One pick in got it right. You know who else did the or seem, so you? Who did that Seattle remember when Russell Wilson was drafted? They had like a big. Money Free Agent and Aveline off the Green Bay. Right to me is I feel like the give Haskins is chance, and then they hopefully move i. mean you know if you are in Washington hopefully? Move on if he doesn't do well. I don't think flipper Allen's the issue and by all accounts, and you can tell me if you've heard otherwise, and let's give some legitimate applause Alex. Smith making progress has but this year be actually seen. The field seems very unlikely. Unlikely it seems unlikely as well, too, but him. Even being at this point to get cleared for full football activity contact everything no restrictions, no name that seemed unlikely so I I don't know what to make of it. If if you saw the ESPN documentary, they did on it where they showed yeah, just what was left of the leg after all the the scarring and taking away of the stuff that was infected a leg that he. Could have lost, or he could have lost his life the fact that he's gotten this far as crazy. No doubt in no way wanted diminish that. You know I think on the field. The odds are this year at least not much of an impact I, actually my little different. A little different here, let's do this. Let's get phases. Take. I, because we had a force bat. Let's listen. Lean, Washington football team over five wins minus a dollar twenty. It's all about that. Washington defense now everyone knows Washington has a strong defensive line, a lot of young talent there even if they hadn't picked up chase young, that would've been a real position of strength for Washington, and I think that oftentimes when you get a position that so loaded which they should have with chase young. That's going to turn that defense from being a below average defense to being a middle of the road defense, and if you have a middle of the road defense, my goodness five-game seems like an awful low hurdle. Lean Washington over five hold on a second. You're saying awfully low, and then you say name. Nain explain I just can't trust Haskins I know he had to really good games at the end of the year, but those seven games beforehand rj. New Coaching staff leap faith at Haskins is going to be an NFL quarterback news on. Can hippie all right well, not enough trust for. All right not enough now. Here's what I would say I like it a little more over. But I'll put a quick caveat on the reason I do because I believe that Rivera coming in there. He is getting so much power that it's kind of us against the front office against everyone else I think he'll do a good job leading the team, but here's my advice looked to play Carolina from game, five or six on because with covert and all that and all the changes. It's GONNA be a tough transition for them to make like any team with a new coach. Now you've got a quarterback. Who Doesn't love the film room? I think they start slow lot of.

Episode 30: Building a Vision

"Hello Lee in front of we Kinda poke cast here with Joe and Brian is always we this goes it's good annoys susser always geared generic yes I'm okay but it's not busy right now you can continue listening you can close down the player and you can go into wherever you were of the list these strange very well basically abuse all right thank you if you're still with us into this nonsense we really from the bottom of arts the voice exciting while I was in a car crashes never guy but it was it was Mina instead of life we are we literally going on right now okay exactly in the moment and monetize society puzzled segments where I have at least at this hour things how do we bring things and start to have control of things we want we can't have control data and actually let things you can't control which would predispo- costs so to do that a five star review you can close it down you can do right now if you like what you're hearing the more then you keep the more people can listen to us we appreciate every single person who's done that so far and we secure and things like that I want to be attitude things experiences how we get to that place how do we start especially the best tallies that he built a vision for wants to achieve when we talk about John Touchstones have that started vision that helping people biking people up Obama from here on in most of us from stats are listening to us on apple devices right now or in on a mobile android device on either one we've been digging deeper we everyone listeners learn something from this journey we've been on just lie so seriously thank you run fully saying we are across all platforms can be how does this work from me how do I get better and what what is it that impact was he just going to be secured right so step Terry Vision let it go this time comes out listen to listen to you I enjoy his Jane coaching tech is seeing the worst time in well dry now to ask you to support and promote asper pretty pleased in that because he will get and now we just division about alloy flight advancing come out you know in this world and stopping plan for me so much I got to get these things I'll just keep of why vision up fully everyday pity happened that we can continue to do so so joe what foist content combat this week concentrates building vision so can around the biggest effect that's the hard thing that vision that should be big as should be Harry as should be scary I should just be the hugest thing you can think of and mutations we put them on ourselves we look at the world if he wants to drive around do for the jets who have that so that sort of success where you would have what could be learned stuff that goes bouncing off stuff and just as he talks about a full we don't we don't get this done conditions or how do we fix shut Komo Thumb Roy I asked the question that haunts the question is nothing I'm boring let's let's just go with we came out because we prepared to deal with that but also still continue to build on my vision but how often have we sat down and actually written that detach of our life so now she goes point be uncomfortable mega jobs the different question do you know we've been up twenty saltine this we goings of an assault just doing or costs the motors vehicle let's go again take to inspiration nation hello Lee kept here for another week and a podcast Jo and Ryan how we doing I think I was a must've been very late twenties maybe even before I started to control my life awesome dre as possible it's not all you some fancy stuff we're trying to just as the excuse for the second emotional emotional mastery then you built and you got a vision for it because when you had a vision for it zip before often react to it something to that point whilst I learn things and strong work ethic and all this stuff I was kind of if you if you if you have no restrictions not in money no problem at all over any all the resources you had compact enough to be conscious about I wanted to build that everything undoing leaning towards where I wanted to have the best chance accredit name she's going through life as reaction to what was happening and I want to do a lot of extra to do if you know is excellent really enjoyed that sounded so faucher spall this way you say you're in this position let's on we're on the thing that I want to know everything about course it doesn't just life loss GonNa throw things at me I would be prepared possible Nikam pet and in Massachusetts and the only way I think you can do this people division and he was what downsides of Tom I saw my life to be like this people had influenced these things happen to actually started to take control when sought to make things happen actually have go drove out the incumbent that sort of stuff I think are really felt locker doing and they took thousands cars I wouldn't say that this is about I know you said people you'll learn things that create limitations and only without always limited it's she's unaware so it wasn't a toll couldn't have these things don't always aware how he did it saw as this will be riding around in private jets and you could put that in because you hang on Harry scary and that's what it's about often you can do something but it was about what I do day in and day out not despair retailers within the luxury another one reduced this kind of reaction since that makes sense talking of so refugees white caught in Utah wasn't envisions your overall thrust were you'll hear was doing a thing you giving up Jay election so the only catch doc contractor the whole thing would be to realize that we all these we're not we're not born with the goal of the benefits of flow one from reaching you does that make sense unless I don't think he was still quite Reggie speaking however uh Sean I saw mcclatchy within now starting now Einstein's of what extra paragraphs around Halloween this start up visualizing comfortable this is going to be the stall of crazy something intentional crime something that you can solve it feels yes now we decided to go inside it's really interesting as well I was shot I live my life the way they use it feels adopt control more punches. I'm reactive rather than proactive in my life he's had that moment any earlier because audio that Tom my hat and what happened and how one Lofton and how things were yeah well Joe once you have that visual check your house built that how does it work for me and for some of this thing so it will act as creativity sweetie what would you lost if I were to then take control of in the happened try to that would be me that essentially may have been to myself the I'm ready to wanted to be and how everyday unconstrained although this one achieve loved every almost every set can lose die conscious about it rather than you say reacting to it so when you become yardstick which will more conscious about is taking frustration reactivated where the outcome being financially stable having whatever call I've been a house whatever was was actually the way I look now is they know it gets you to the place where you Arinda Jack and you've gotTa love that saying is that get you in the chair and the jetsons deploy velvet and I do think we've done that I'm now like all noise how to to think combat and starts tight control it starts to shake things and stuff to do things so I don't think before teaching Barry so the actions that you take every day almost H. E. goals these big vision that big piece of vision and now we've talked about goes a long term short me long no sign you all but if you're frustrated you more conscious because you have the vision happy with my life at the moment this love doing and keep doing this but if this trained uh-huh and he's always use a few times that the private jet analogy where's to me that's not pitching for life that's now comes off this Earlier I still wish I know anything but I think he had to eventually but that's where it isn't that not everything but really he wasn't the best in the world but he's struggling so he could have gone grabby for Apple now actually worrisome I'm still trying to Clem to every the you can get before raft ready grow up I don't think I'm not say Paul Very Markham regret but you'll love this sight mentality is at holy leave you fifty he went down to between few allies feeling to me that so what would you say in your head I have more energy and I do this I need to get more that rather than some happy on the continent epic Saga Days Whatever you Sir Oh no no laws around is about how is intentional belt that intention to about three episodes of being tension about the individual side I don't want your question for question and this isn't dodging the question but what is your vision someone troll my life enjoy it for what it is if that makes sense is doing and I say that because I look I don't authentic there's a part of me that we say you're seeing twenty four yeah that salvage always years of being in a different space let's enter Magin you've now goes right now right here back in a lot an overall vision is to what you want to be what is it won't beans your life it might be funny more this great you can have took bring value to the to the world white to wake the world up me to be healthy you know to have well in not just not just so that's my vision crane is hoping on the website was to create that vision terp unleash the potential of people and bat and get more of that just moving intention about incredible there's no rules around it is about what you said you shouldn't be what I'm happy with that that's quite the purpose because for me I wasn't living a life of purpose and I have to go through that journey so one to find it and I think actions outweighs about not meet the intention about let's leave as my life is a youth do next that's been was like the vision for a family that's probably where he got out balance in contrast such things back to his personal relationship supper because you now have that you've been exposed to it which is amazing because I didn't have to rely on Joe whenever I want but then subconsciously implanted in which case a month avoided the pain went through the in not health wise not just knowledge was everything everything moneywise all those types of things coming off but being intentional about it you have the best life possible with my family so we're not my attention a lot he's like a dusting is All my vision too there's no rules about whatever you want it to be is being intentional about it being detail about it it's your personal thing there's not another Roy for me my mother had had that awareness vision or probably wouldn't go through that but the weed thing as being over everything it's quite vicious about about being an adult was about is is it for you is it the thing that is as low as trajectory which is really strange I think about that now so that's really what it is that's why my intentions white people mighty off that and maybe that's what he would have been successful who knows but maybe to construct a best of both who knows the chronic tension around the things that you do you recognize you can't have more of that love move this Akeso guys go out and do more of that because whatever the thing you love is energy because let me say this point so now let's move on misuse the all things I've done and how can bring this to myself to help others during off becoming coaching will want to become on the happens through at sixty dollars and zippy my fam- with as well involve them in it swell in his how eunice not the is not another year and how we should be very wasting the world for nothing could come back and told me I mean gone backing said what someone said this to me now when people lost their jobs correctly has businesses might be if they're lies but that's probably where St Joe's my dad went wrong business was amazing boom it's all over as you know these multiple but other mines while I love doing it's not a problem with that vision is not going she's not a won't basil mice about what does that Beijing meaning trying now you'll enjoy being in training you'll find yourself roy this comes on read this hell Hole Punch these things have not been the roof structure lot Roy some allies because you you talk a lot about it being and everything is to have from me head attorney's well we're on this journey how can we what we can do we can bring these three lives like three to say well happen especially talk about people Danny and you kind of parallel that against me being struck kids go look at you and I look at you get in our and I wouldn't get up and stuff down at that and we didn't have the discipline routines you have and did today he's told you before some great ladies Opportunity And in vision is a case where do we move on from here on growth some grind for all the things that happened to me lease it ungrateful happens there but big weeks for the two weeks field deteriorating ended up along with how the messages yeah I think but it's still guy but I think the vision should be silent big that you put in Connecticut but you you because that gives you giral advocate few and more from now you could be from now wanted to be more visible the same is sorts of things I'm talking about Ashley can we think about what we got because we said about the wall how he gives us frustrations helping prepare the vision prepares you for those things because you're in the kind of big influence in my life right now who really boys into party graduate things also the mindfulness things so I've been trying to do a lot more mindfulness when lasker hitting the ball back everyone to do this that must be some wage a lot of gratitude this driver for some grateful for up and that's what could happen but still more levels visu age you think you all we've thought and vision read some Saxon stuff for us but it was like I've had that in my hate for weeks and weeks and weeks are going to do it but it was nowhere else wasn't on a plan sleeping in a moment type stuff and I think of progressive curve that with a realize because I'm struggling with my patient being a fourteen thing if he likes I've got the list down and having the routine actually all I feel like moisture hate fuzzy and yours very structured realities are very different than in charge of the dying Lawrence if you love you live because that's the outcomes let's say because I'm not alone but this is quite is quite organic is more feeling yeah well if anything hades and then when I need it so down to show you is what I did have and that necessity thing I talked about the so don't feel that money's structured and again hey around me your voice fame king because actually the thing I've been really challenging myself on a basically started in his podcast but also someone who so you could bought a vision on him and he said why is that going to be that could probably change the course of you'll I'm an actually saying almost go the plan in my hades but I'm also I've lost couple of months a lot more living in the moment within Oh cal got real fishing for where I think we can go with all this stuff and how it works and that think oh I've got a plan on those it up here but I wouldn't be here but we're listening where Robbie had that were previously so I will probably was thinking that what you talk you I'm GonNa tell you this because I am I think and I think Craig referencing back to las where you could construct engine moves forward facing long time what else done exactly the clean house thing and yeah of well to be putting some rain out Ross pool that have are now shifty reality because thought Pinot you mean you gotta work and some money mitral payment force tables because at that point I wasn't really ready for that beats and stuff at work and nothing actually was that bad really have a balance in my life like say do site night if you live in the future anxiety if you knew the policy depressions hoping about living but also having that quick what works and what was it doing this as I could do my whole life is doom and gloom and we wrote about planned in financing those things out and I think uh-huh visions or goals I think where Mike on of life plan in the mid it is different to other sites more reactive and my hate working on Netflix loss of go that balance of everything and all of those polls got known goals it's the same thing I oughta visualize it visualize two percent a day or two percent a week or whatever I visualize it as it's a Komo broke it down Robin was sowing the facts on you're going to do it yet you still get this isn't it moves around it figured that were official goal I want to reach Joe Future things ought to the behind of go offs of kids stuff with my family stopped refrains and undoing a bit of all of them quite comfortable of all good balance between tossed the after plate that is a challenge I set myself at that time and so they re tend to eat on gates it to a long period of time you said that the lease mentioned the it's more that's not to send a whole go that's as small go that helps me reach the big ago our specialty just ask because he was actually think about that that's when you create your vision that says division so if you wanna-be Obsession about game there on focusing on giving one hundred percents of the plan right now that might be in doing small things to keep me progressing in my career and then eventually when something becomes up though I wanna get whether that's my first house or brand new car then that's something that I can that long-term pace up she's shifts essentially just an there's nothing that suggests I'm doing audited with the one in so we did that that's so cute spoke to you about that so yes that's version of it sleet he's where we will create our own reality and we tell us how we all people might look again as against everyone else sees a love that but the thing about that is just sitting there nothing with my career why life yeah the bumped Renault who had colds or no they are read even training myself to stop and snow with roaches and and and again arrested a lot but it's obviously really stopped me have exactly the conversations we've joe this is great `lustration stay where he does head over to coaching tech and drop message right so one of the things that fascinates myself finished short-term meeting long Disney so the mindset sounds like you've got the shortcomings median is that longtime pace isn't it another plan is now which is brilliant because he's that that is sufficient I don't want to these
