Joe Biden; The Most Corrupt President in American History

"Promo code prager. Thank you, Dennis, and it's always a privilege. It never gets old, and it's never unappreciated. Dennis is unique, and there's no one else I'd rather fill in for. Many years ago, actually this house started many years ago Dennis said to me, you know, those are pretty big shoes for you to fill in for. Me, meaning his size. What does that Sean a size 12 size 13? What is this where? I don't even know. But he didn't mean his shoes were so big, right, he meant just, well, maybe he did because he told me I thought 12 or 13, I may be totally wrong. We've got to find that out. But big shoes they are because no one in the media is quite like him, including offering the inside he does in so many issues. So I just try to give you my perspective on life and issues and maybe one of these days my own podcast. You know, with all the teaching and everything else I do, it's been hard to get it going, but we will at some point. In this first hour I talked about whether we need a new Declaration of Independence to take back our country from the left. In this hour I want to talk about the specific charges against the king, because I said, right, the founders revolted rebelled against the king of England. As they seek to control our lives and make us into their left wing utopia. That's what they're doing. But if this is important, if you understand their ultimate goal, they're specific policy disasters, make more sense. You think they failed because they don't work. But they think they succeeded because they've created chaos and disorder. Just as with the policies of the king of England, so many years ago. But of course, Joe Biden is no king. He doesn't have a set of principles and he never did. Actually has one set of principle. That's the grow his principle. If you don't mind the pun. He might be the most corrupt president we've ever had. In any case, he's actually more of a placeholder for the left than anything else. And Kamala Harris, my God. Is she over her head? She must have always want to power to make up for her insecurities, of which there must be many. That's my guess. I'm no psychologist. Sean, do you remember the Peter principal? He's looking at me funny. He's just doesn't look that way. Of course. A quizzical look. It was the Peter principal said that you're doing your job well and then they promote you to the higher job and that's where you fail because you were very good at what you did before, but you're not so good in a promoted role. In my other field as a teacher, you wouldn't believe how many bad a system principles and principles there are. They might have been very good teachers. That's kind of what the Peter principal was. But she was an awful senator if you remember that. And an awful attorney general before that. I think Dennis even debated her once. But yes, you know what she was? A good friend of former speaker of the California assembly, Willie Brown. Actually, I don't know if she was a good friend, Willie Brown. You'd have to ask Willie Brown, right? We don't even know if she was Sean, why are your eyes going like cross eyed? You're not saying anything. Neither am I. But we never checked lily Brown about that. It's hard to believe, though, that these are the highest office holders in our country. They're an embarrassment to our country. But again, they're clearly being controlled by the left. Whether it's Obama, that's my guess, is people or other leftists. Do you remember the event weeks ago where Obama came back? I guess for the first time to visit The White House. And he comes back and everybody's around him and he's up mister terrific. And Joe Biden wandered around looking for someone to say hello to hip, just to say, now that was pathetic to watch. I almost felt sorry for him as bad as he is as corrupt as he is. But of course you have to ask this question. Why does Biden's wife and I kind of hinted at it in the first hour, she must be so obsessed with power to have ever cared about protecting her husband's dignity. What about his dignity? You can say, well, if your mean, you say you'd never had any. But in fact, that defines all of them seeking power to make up for their shortcomings as people. That's what I guess. They seek power to define themselves, especially power over other people. That's my best guess. Let me know what you think. One 8 prager 7 7 6. And it includes people on our side, too. Like Mitt Romney, if I had a guess, if you remember his father didn't do well running for president, I forgot the incident that happened on not going to say he cried or something that would have been, that was Mike dukakis, I think, of Massachusetts, but there was something, and all of a sudden he failed miserably in his quest for the presidency. So my guess is Mitt Romney's avenging for his father's undignified loss of the presidency. But, you know, I've apologized. Many times for being a delegate for it. He fooled me too for a while. But Dennis said he met with him and he didn't care about principles. Yeah, that makes sense. And Liz Cheney. Oh my God. Trying to preserve, I guess her father's legacy, whatever that was. If anything, she's tarnished what, with many of her pronouncements, she's tarnished what people thought about her dad, Dick Cheney. I suspect that all these people have deep personal problems, and I never feel that they care what is best first for our country. That they care best first, what's best for them. But they are part of the leftist cabal, whether they know it or not. What did the Russians call them useful idiots? So back to the charges. We had charges against the king and I mentioned in the first hour that's what the Declaration of Independence was about. So what are our charges begin with against this would be president. The stealing of the presidency. They never accepted Trump's victory, and they were willing to stop at nothing to make sure he lost. Including, as you know, the Russian hoax, what, two years impeachments, and the banning from social media. And now they have lawsuits against him and other enemies. Anybody who had anything to do with them. These people have no moral guard rails, except to win at all costs. That's it. And I said in the first hour, they're likely 20 anomalies over 20 that had to happen for Trump to lose. But they did win and Joe Biden and Kamala Harris are in office because of blatant fraud. As the movie 2000 mules demonstrates pretty well itself. So, mister king Biden, our first charge you never should have been declared king because you ascended to the throne illegally. How many of you, you can call me one of the prager 7 6 7 7 6? How many of you listeners like me still cringe when they call on President Biden? I still have trouble with that. It's like calling the person who stole your house, the homeowner. And to add insult to injury, the king had his Justice Department, as you know, throw innocent people into jail, summoned to solitary confinement, as I mentioned, because of January 6th, and they call it an insurrection. I love that. That was an insurrection. I don't think so. Riff raff and all kinds of people maybe, but insurrection, I don't think so. Of course, your edicts at the very beginning like ending our pipelines and drilling the ending of drilling for fossil fuels and discouraging just the scourge leases, just the other week I think it was. But it's part of your plan, see, that's what I said. You got to understand what they're up to. That's their plan to destroy capitalism and markets that we're working here. To this day, even in light of high gas prices, you continue this policy as part of the Green New Deal. And that's going to help destroy our country. So what do they do? They printed a lot of money to assuage the peasants doing my analogy with the king with your trillions of dollars in giveaways. It's a way to make them more dependent on your government. When you make people give them money then they start to depend on the government. It makes me think of a story when I first started teaching. I think it was a fourth grade kid. He's running around the school building wildly. It wasn't my student. And I finally caught up to him. I said, you know, what are you going to do with this? What are you going to do with your life? In fourth grade, he said to me, I'll go on welfare. His family must have been on welfare. He already knew that term. That was his dream, I guess, or that's what he had hoped. So that's what you do with the printing and money. And as you know, with inflation at a control, it won't be long before your Marie Antoinette, Kamala Harris, says let them eat cake. Sean, you do remember Marie Antoinette? In history, if nothing else, Dennis did not debate Marie Antoinette. You don't have to look that up. Debate between Dennis Murray. But of course, I'm confused in two different revolutions. But a revolution we have on the streets through your defunding of the police, you're just less department allowing the left to right and commit mayhem to scare, get this now, the masses into needing your protection. That's what's going on. And of course, we know that the DA's all across this country funded by George Soros of letting them out. I read a story the other day. They can't get police in many cities. Who would want to be a policeman these days? You lock sum it up. They're out in jail before you could even say boo. And just like Putin protesting his liberation of Nazis in the Ukraine, that was a justification. You come up with this phony white supremacy, as the number one problem in our country, and the reason for the crackdown of our civil liberties. I can see all these juxtapositions with what you're doing and with communism and dictatorship. A long, of course, with charges about America being a white supremacist country because you use race baiting at every chance because you have nothing else.

"marie antoinette" Discussed on The Past and the Curious

"No Austrian makeup, no Austrian dress, and no Austrian underwear. Her underwear and everything else would be French from this moment on. Hundreds of eyes watched as someone brought her French made replacements, and waited patiently as she put it all on. There was a chemise, a white linen dress undergarment. Then of corset, which tightened around her torso like a big boa constrictor. And inside the fabric of the corset were whalebones and when the laces were cinched, the contraption squeezed all of the air out of her, squishing her organs like sausage in a casing. She hated it. It didn't get any better with the giant forms beneath her skirt and panniers, which were giant cages that tied to her hips and protruded just off each side. The saying beauty is pain, might actually be an incomplete saying. The full thing could more accurately be. Beauty is pain. And never being able to get comfortable. And not even being able to fit easily through a doorway. A few days later, when she met her husband. Sparks were. Not flying. Marie didn't find the 15 year old boy particularly attractive, and he was pretty awkward in general. He wasn't terribly excited either. In his journal, the only thing he wrote about that fateful day was. Met the Dauphine today. Not a real charmer. To be fair, he was still practically a child like Marie. So the idea of having to get married, probably scared him out of his wits. On the morning of their wedding, Marie stood shivering in the cold draughty room that had most recently belonged to her husband's, now deceased mother. As the Dauphine, she had to show patience and kindness on her face. But her head was probably swimming with curse words that she wished she could hurl at the group of attending ladies, known as her ladies in waiting. Why were they called ladies in waiting? She probably wondered, Marie Antoinette was the one doing all of the waiting around. It took hours to get ready. They slowly piled her hair high on her head and powdered it like a big furry donut. And then they slathered her face and makeup and rouged her cheeks. Then, finally, they put some underwear on her, a shift that was tied with lace, as well as the rest of her understructure, that would seem to inflate her dress like one of those balloons from Thanksgiving Day parades. And then came the dress. Since her mother in law was dead, Marie would be the most important woman in French court. And despite being a stranger to France, she was to be queen. So all eyes were watching her. Her wedding dress had to be incredible. And it was. There was just one small problem, though. The dressmaker made it before Marie had arrived from Austria. She had never actually sat for a fitting. And as a result, it was a little too small. Despite her slender build and a team of women pulling in all directions, the back of her dress could not be closed. And this left a little bit of her underwear, peeking out. There were many catty courters and attendants who were eager to watch her embarrass herself, and poor Marie's exposed underwear. Couldn't have made them any happier. Years later, when Louis grandfather died, the inevitable happened. Louis never wanted to be king, and he hoped his father and two older brothers would wear The Crown instead. But they, like many other family members in this story, croaked before they could. Marie was okay with it. As the queen, she was a celebrity living a life of luxury, splendor, and fine fashion. The Palace of Versailles had 11 hundred rooms. This never ending maze of halls and walls did make it hard to find a restroom. As a result, many of those otherwise fancy rooms smelled really, really bad. See, if you couldn't find the restroom, it would not uncommon for people to just relieve themselves, and the most convenient place. Because of this and plenty of other reasons, she spent most of her time in her own separate private house on the land. Still, she hated waiting for the ladies in waiting to finish arguing about who got to wash her feet, and who got to tie her corset. In fact, she got sick of wearing corsets altogether. When she paraded with friends around the garden in her shift, which was basically a plain cotton underdress, people started talking. But when she wore that same underdress to an official court function, the talking grew louder. This wasn't just a rejection of customs. This was undignified. All those fancy noble heads underneath fancy hats, practically exploded over the queen. Basically wearing her underwear in public. Now to us today, it would look like a plane, white billowy dress, but to the people of her world, it was underwear. It was something to be worn between her perfume laden body and her fine branch, fabric dress. But Marie didn't care. In fact, she had a portrait painted of herself wearing the cotton shift. So now anyone and everyone could see it. Despite the uproar her underdressed painting caused, the attention it garnered helped inspire other women to dress more simply. She was a trendsetter after all, and maybe deep down other ladies hated wearing an entire closets worth of fabric every day too. So the feedback wasn't all bad. French women's fashion got simpler and easier for a period of time. But this wasn't really what the citizens of France were worried about. While Marie was complaining about waiting for her ladies to tend to her daily routine, and while the royal courtiers were just complaining about Marie. Citizens of France were complaining about real problems. They didn't have any food or money. Several harsh winters left the peasants with no crops. They didn't even have the basics to bake bread. Understandably, they got really angry when they thought about Marie and Louis and the rest of the courtiers living in extravagance. When the revolting peasants first stormed the palace, the mob just ransacked the place while the royal family was able to escape. Not long after, though, things got out of hand. The people behind the French Revolution wanted to end the rule of kings and give power to the citizens. Inspired by the American Revolution, which Marie's husband king Louis the 16th had ironically helped pay for, the French citizens wouldn't rest until they had a democracy. Part of not resting meant cutting off a bunch of heads, with a newfangled head chopper offer known as the guillotine. King Louis was a victim of this device. His head fell into a basket months before Marie would know her own fate. She languished in prison during that time, and was finally rolled to the gallows before a crowd, in her cotton underdress. It was much like the one she wore to scandalize the nobility. Royal heads come off just as easily as anyone else's. And Marie's was no different. The rebels threw her into an unmarked grave near her husband. And years later, after a man named Napoleon met his doom, the French monarchy returned, and Louise younger brother was crowned the king. The unmarked graves of his brother and sister in law, which sat amongst mere peasants and other less important, but headless nobles, bothered him greatly. So he had them dug up and reburied. It's rumored that the grave diggers were able to identify Marie Antoinette's body by the very specific stitching.

And that's why because that was the the profession then now that between doesn't take Between doesn't know what the problems of the the starving masses are And i think that's why the legend about the ship hairstyle has persisted because we think of her as somebody who would spend money on something silly. That's not how the story originally went at all But it's white for because it fits with what we know of her in hindsight but that she was perhaps not As as in tune with the common people she should've been yet and so the french revolution began with storming the best in july seventeen eighty nine and by the following month.

We know how long it would take to make anyone of these dresses. We talked about how they're all handmade. How hand woven. How long would it take to produce a court dress for queen. Marie-antoinette you it really. Depending on how much money you had. They can be turned around pretty quickly surprisingly quickly.

How did you go to the bathroom. You weren't allowed to sit down and court. That didn't matter but this was not supposed to make you look attractive or young It was supposed to make it look rich and it did that very effectively. Because huge canvases for embroidery and jewels and metallic trimmings. Were literally away of wearing your wealth. And that's what you wanted to do at court. You wanted to be and be seen to outshine everyone and also to honor the king. That's why court dress was So often brand new. Because you had to show your loyalty to the king by wearing something that you would not just for that occasion and there are actually very few surviving pieces of clothing and accessories known to have belonged marie-antoinette.

And there's a great quote from one of the queen's ladies in waiting that set of britan's specifically quote the admission of marchand mode into the queen's household had unfortunate consequences for her majesty the skill of the marchand mode received in the household despite the custom that excluded all persons of her class without exception afforded her the means of introducing each day some new fashion the queen until that moment had not developed more than a very plain taste in dress she began to make it her primary occupation and she was imitated by all women. So kimberly. can you talk about this culture fashion during this period on the rover tanta marie-antoinette played where they really having a daily influence on fashion. In fact there there are so many examples of how hashing was really speeding up the time period having fashion magazines were coming up not every month but every ten days and having the daily access to the latest fashions very important there other stories of women's of keeping a hairdresser on retainer so every day he had to provide a new hairdresser for a new hairstyle for thing for changing extremely fast and the queen was was encouraging that she was she was buying into that and she was part of that and that made the need life very expensive for women who wanted to keep up and it also though was of course in the economy and so it was. It was very hard to criticize some ways. It was also a very easy way to attack the queen who was unpopular over many reasons. That.

Insurrections and getting committee stood up your reaction to the fact that nancy or shall we call him. shall we called him. Marie-antoinette doesn't want to have any truth telling republicans on her committee so has she really made a mistake now congressman. Is it now not clear to everyone that the january the six quote unquote commission is just a political sham. It is a political sham. It's going to be bipartisan but without a disagreement at the start as to any aspect of it because she has managed to pick people who already agree with her at least she believes they do and Starting of course with liz cheney. She's got somebody who Has basically said that the republican party and anyone who said that there were irregularities in arizona or pennsylvania are inherently un-american and likens us to the people on the wrong side of the civil war The reality is our constitutional obligations were met. She chose to go and other way but nancy. Pelosi wants to turn all of that into a january six once in a millenium Sort of a claim And she's going to run that through with this sham commission.

Historical Costuming with Dr. Christine Millar of Sewstine

"Climb christine. I go on the internet as so steam. And i am a lot of things really. I am historical costumer who focuses on digital embroidery and extremely detailed trim. But i'm also a physician by trade. So i do work in a hospitals as anesthesiologist through this pandemic and i also do a god. I also have a youtube channel. Where i talk about how to create these things and really. I also focused on instagram. And so i just wanna take a moment and again. Thank you for being here. Because i do not know how you do all these things. You're also a mother of an adorable. I think he's too now toddler so i just want to thank you for taking the time to be here especially with everything you have going on. Oh my god. I can't believe. I forgot to mention the family. Yes mother and game. So i just want to kind of learn a little bit more about you. Do you have an earliest memory of clothing. That might have stuck with you over the years. Did you first realize the transformative power of clothing. I love to ask people this question. Oh my okay. So i was born in korea and i came to the united states when i was three and a half so i have a lot of memories of sitting in korea watching american disney movies like the little mermaid as well as There's an anime cult candy candy. I don't know if you've ever heard of it. But it's basically a yellow haired american girl who wears fluffy roughly dresses all over the place. And i was so obsessed with pink ruffled gowns especially after areas pink dress in little mermaid that my aunt actually got me a nine petty bridesmaid dress for like a little four year old girl and i was so big on me and i remember wearing it for the first time and it was the most happy moment of my childhood and from there on i think i just became obsessed with drawing in trying to capture addresses and the older i got i the more i realized what i really wanted to do was not just draw these dresses but actually had to wear these dresses. Yeah and i'd love to hear a little bit more about that. Because i think everyone probably has their own unique origin story about how they came to historical costuming. How did it all start for you. I believe you kind of started in caused play to if i'm not incorrect. That's exactly it. I initially started in. 'cause play. I noticed i was doing a lot of costuming for some of my favorite power. Females like the tana princess leia. you know Firefly characters and that's where i started end but the real one that i really want to make was katrina from sleepy hollow particularly that black and white striped dress that she works for about fifteen seconds in the end. I initially made it in college end to turn out right but you know i loved it enough that it. I just realized that my favorite movie costumes were all historically based and once. I realized that it was really easy to just kind of focus on that i kind of went. The steam punk route and did a lot of eighties bustle dresses. One of which. I got into the new york times style section when i was in college and that gave me the like the positive energy boost i needed to religious focus all my energies into historical. And that's not to say. I still don't do 'cause play in fact i'm working on a cost play right now for another power female a sister of battle for more than forty k which seems like a completely turnaround but to me. It's just you know more of the same like you know detailed female power stuff and i'm not cost player or historical costumer of but i come from a career as a costume supervisor in a costume designer i started in theater and then i got into film and tv but i have this just incredible appreciation and fascination with these communities both the 'cause play community and historical costuming community. They're not necessarily mutually exclusive as you attest to you. Know they are really quite intermingled. A lot of the times. Even though. I don't participate in these communities. I really really anxious. I just think it's so cool do so for those who may not know. Can you please tell us a little bit more about this worldwide historical costume community and cause play community and maybe just kind of start by defining those things. 'cause i don't think everyone may know the difference. That's a really good point. So i say cost play his costumer like everybody knows but so cost player. Is someone who makes costumes for movies. Tv shows games sort of like established Ip already out there. So you know someone who's a cost player making a princess leia costume versus on historical customer may take a museum piece or a picture from say like an old fashioned panel and try to recreate those so it's different goals so the cost player tends to try to make things as screen accurate as possible or take their own spin on a two degree while the historical customer is all about trying to get things to look historically accurate or correct the historical time period. But these are vague goals. You know everybody has their own specific goals when it comes to costuming which is really one of the most delicious parts of it. Yeah and i think just seeing how many all these people all around the world who have been introduced to through instagram. That's how i became familiar with you and a lot of your peers was just through instagram. And the para social media but admits so many wonderful people and so many people who have incredibly different approaches to as you mentioned these same historical or cause play approaches so just so cool so you yourself have built this incredible online presence for yourself you instagram and youtube as you mentioned at so steen is your handle. And you're really just showing all of these various historical dress projects that you've created at your in home studio which is just incredible. I love you can tell us a little bit about your selection process. What is your inspiration between starting these different projects so omen inspiration from everywhere and think. There's always about fifteen different projects night years going through my head at any point in time so a lot of times. What'll happen is i will learn something about or i will be able to actually procure a certain fabric. So for instance right now. I'm working on the dressed. That marie antoinette whereas in the two thousand and six the couple of film marie-antoinette in the chapel or the church which has the strawberries on it. This particular fabric is woven in italy. It's based off of seventeen eighties. Waistcoat in a museum collection. Somewhere in this particular fabric was actually used in about three different films including the original dangerous liaisons movie and it is so hard to get if you can even buy it. It usually runs about three hundred euros a meter so for me. That is like you know. I might be a doctor but i can't. I can't spend that much right on top of it. It wasn't even like procurable. Until very recently i was able to actually buy it because Not the original. But some other company on oetzi started making a knockoff of it. And i don't know how legal his is but on the other hand. It's based off of original waistcoat. And the you know the trademark on run out like two hundred fifty years ago so the fact is you know this. Other companies started offering. It was very similar. The colors are almost identical slightly. Different here and there but it was so close and the fact that they were able to offer it at a significant discount from the original price meant that it went from being pipedream in the back of my head to something. I could actually do now so a lot of times. It'll be that i finally find. The fabric actually comes available or in the case of the strawberry dress which i turn into which is strawberry regency dress. I always want to make address. But i really didn't like the roses on the original inventory. Not because i dislike roses. Or i think it's ugly. I've just digitized so many roses but then suddenly the strawberry gus went. I like i can just turn those roses and strawberries. And no one's gonna care or mind. So i was able to do that as well. So it's all about what becomes available to.

A Man of Wealth of Taste

"The quest for immortality the urge to escape the inevitability of death has long been a preoccupation for us as evidenced by the ancient sumerian poem the epic of gilgamesh the oldest example of written literature known today in the poem written sometime around eighteen hundred bc in mesopotamia. The titular gilgamesh part hero part. Arrogant demi-god undertakes nordic Mission to find the secret to immortality ought to being confronted by the inevitability of his own death though we might not be demigods like gilgamesh his desperate refusal to accept the inevitability of his fate is a deeply human one and something that many of us can sympathize with whether we elect to place our hopes in the promises of religious teachers or in the invention and imagination of our leading bio gerontologist those that studied the mechanics of aging throughout many of us. Who haven't contemplated the possibility of existing forever in one form or another however although some of those may want for it being mortal israeli portrayed as something desirable and at the very least. There's something that can only be achieved at a great cost from the burdens of connor macleod in his pursuit to become the only remaining highlander to the pitiful efforts of melmeth the wanderer to convince another soul to take on his pact with the devil in return for another one hundred fifty years of life. In fact we take great pains to dissuade ourselves from wanting it. Perhaps this is simply to provide some comfort in the face of such a futile desire. But it doesn't stop us trying back in october this year. A team led by tel aviv. University professor shy f ratty published the results of an extraordinary study in the journal aging study to determine the effect of pure oxygen on the aging process involved placing thirty five adults over the age of sixty four in a hyperbaric chamber and giving them pure oxygen for ninety minutes a day five days a week over the course of three months through this process of frats team found they were able to successfully limit the build-up of senescent cells in the body cells. The today's to the point where they can no longer replicate leaving the body. Susceptible to many age related diseases incredibly not only to this delay the aging process but actually reversed it.

"I realized I've been using the words envy and Jealousy interchangeably when there's actually a fine but stark difference between them. Jealousy. is about fear. Jealousy is anxiety about losing what you have that nervous feeling that someone is out for your spot. Envy on the other hand is about desire. Envy is wanting what you don't yet have its daydreaming and striving and keeping up with the Joneses. But. The primary difference I would say is that these are two radically different feelings. Jealousy. Is Corrosive and painful, and it drives you absolutely up the wall. Envy on the other hand is almost. Fun. I mean I feel like what my therapist would tell you that my obsession with comparison is like not good for my life. But I also feel like it's a strong part of unfortunately my personality for writer Evie Ebert envy is a byproduct of ambition I had kind of built my life around this idea that This version of me and the president is not the real me. The real me is this like Hologram of myself that I'm pursuing where things work out the way that I want them to and I'm better and I'm smarter and I'm more successful and I'm getting there. and. Then it was sort of like the pandemic HIV extremely harsh pause button on everyone's life and it was like, no the what you have right now is all that there is there's no forward movement we had to remind ourselves to be happy to be alive and lucky if we're in good health. Grateful for what we have right where we are. Blake. That's hard to sustain. Aspiration without opportunity ferments envy. Of course, I could be much worse off but I was like green with envy about people whose homes are larger were living in better climates maybe who had outdoor pools and I had a real inclination to kind of judge myself for becoming obsessed with. Who has a better basically and so I was like, no, this is part of my self care practice is allowing myself to be annoyed by people. But then every realized that other people were probably allowing themselves to be annoyed at her. He's essay in the cut is titled Do. You hate me for my lawn. She has a law and it feels extremely luxurious like being able to open the front door and signed my four year old out I feel like marie-antoinette basically for a while felt like everything and anything was a luxury showing off your sour dough bread meant you had groceries Zoom conferences meant you had a job complaining about your kids had human contact you can't win at this. I mean, some people are having A. Hard. Time but nobody's having fun and then in the midst of pointing our fingers at each other and tossing are envy around our immediate circle. We picked our ears up. We heard sound. Horrible sound. No has been the siren song of extremely wealthy celebrities. Huge We rose up and grabbed R N D, r proverbial pitchforks, and we marched to the photographs of Drake's weirdly empty hotel lobby of mansion. We swarmed to pick apart the celebrity bookshelves on zoom. We roundly mocked the rich and famous as insistence that all in this together it was so overtly tone-deaf. Are. Envy. was almost. Delicious I'm having this resentment and you're having to and it's it's something that we're kind of sharing. I feel like it's part of the shared pandemic experienced. It was suddenly like we were truly all in this together. Freud talks about this in civilization and its discontents that cohesive society unites around a common enemy an out group. There are lots of scary an unfortunate examples of the groups America has ostracized, but the rich and famous are not among them. Because, it's so much more complicated than pure animosity if they're so awful and they're so ridiculous in there. So repugnant why? Why does Kim Kardashian have like a Zillion instagram followers molly young is the literary critic for New York magazine and she was wondering why we want to keep looking at rich people for envy or fantasy or whatever we turn to them for I mean what's interesting about the quarantine is you started seeing a lot of people turn against celebrities right like Ellen complaining that quarantining in her gigantic house made her feel like she was imprisoned or whatever, and finally people are starting. To kind of examine the purpose that these celebrities are serving in our lives need to examine why we're interested in them in the first place

"Would just try to wrap up George Floyd's death at the hands of for Minnesota a Minneapolis Minnesota police officers what is looking like a gross misuse of force Democrats say it's racism I'm not seeing it I got a smack what seems to be a conservative out there for posting this on the internet I saw it I thought it was disgusting it was not helpful Colin Kaepernick was criticized for taking a knee taking a knee during the national anthem during the NFL and the point we were trying to make there is he's an employee of a business he's offending fans and we the fans are not happy with it and that we don't want politics in our in our football that was a controversy back then anyway people were different sides of it or whatever but this name I guess it's a meme all right that when they take things and put photos up on the internet this is all over the place he is making its rounds it's a picture of the cop taking a knee to George Floyd and it says this dot dot dot dot dot dot is why and there's a me being taken by Colin Capra Nick apparently there's this is making its way around and I find it repulsive Lou I find it repulsive there's no comparison here there's no comparison it's not a racial situation so stop making race about it I'm not happy with this photo I think it does not add to getting to a solution here and hold people accountable it just fans the flames of division here when we're not talking about race right now we don't have any evidence that this is racially motivated and stop bring race into it on either side it just cheapens it cheapens the death of the the unfortunate death of this man it cheapens the investigation it cheapens the justice that's going to be matted out going forward and it makes fools of everybody that just presuming it's always going to be race no matter what the other evidences yep let's so let's talk about small businesses so we've already established I think pretty clearly based on evidence based on experience of sweet in Georgia North Carolina Florida Texas Japan that the politicians over reacted to the corona virus and the over reaction started the the day after Easter April thirteenth we should have been done with our fifteen days to flatten it gave us some time to learn more about the disease to get a little bit more prepared and it did the trick but no we kept everyone locked down and now almost six seven weeks later we're still paying the price to small businesses some small businesses are gonna come back and those that do come back are going to be really struggling for a while the politicians don't seem to understand this that's why they kept us in lockdown that seem to care the blood CO of New York just you know sort of like a Marie Antoinette let them eat cake said this today about small businesses are you for I've talked a lot a lot of business leaders that specially the smallest businesses are very worried about the future is understandably but they also are hanging on and they know that could be a matter of months that'll be back in action actually a lot of pent up demand a lot of people who are gonna be buying local and as I talk to people as a medium and bigger businesses they fully intend to come back the waiting for the right safe environment the right guidelines and they're ready to go wait did you say months he said there did any it will be months before they come back wounded we can't stay locked down for months in people in New York like wait is he saying months we should be re opening now we should be getting back to work now well this was an over reaction you can't I mean and I think the Bosnia said they're basically saying we're calling how do I slowly get out of this so it doesn't look like I over reacted I can't go from gloom and doom I'm going to arrest you it to very next day saying okay you can go get a hair cut you go to the gym even even Newsome is traveling faster than the buzz you on this thing but back to the point so these businesses are coming back and can you imagine as tough as California was to make ends meet to run a business to set up a business and comply with regulations and pay your taxes and deal with the high cost of living the high cost of operating and the lawsuits in the shakedowns all the run around from bureaucrats can you imagine a small business then having to deal covered nineteen got many many noble even the hardiest of small business owners would say we're out of it and I I lost count Lou I've lost count of the number of business owners have told me they're not re opening or the date that they're leaving California this is it they're they're they're out they're gonna go to another state where entrepreneurship and small business job creation is actually welcomed and appreciated not stomped out at every turn and so in California these people should be talking right now our elected officials about cutting red tape about streamlining about making it easier about getting out of the way about being as supportive as possible but no no no no no no they're not doing that they're talking about mandates fines penalties and investigations right that this is the exact opposite direction that we should be going in in fact it's just the idea of talking about it it dampens the energy that the at the businesses need to have Carl that's open up we need to open up with an explosion I mean we need this spring just as you collapse at an umbrella we have collapse the economy you need to press that button and have that umbrella open up like a great big peacock tail we should be talking about fines and regulations right now we did it we know now based on the studies that Kobe nineteen does not get spread on surfaces but what are we requiring every single restaurant has to get rid of the the menu every restaurant has to get rid of the salt and pepper shaker every single I mean you think about it either all these things have an impact on the restaurant they have to implement new protocols there's no scientific basis for the party said you can't get it on services but what are we doing but we have to do that and so you look at this and you have to ask why are they implementing these new regulations because it makes us feel good well for every regulation that makes you feel good it costs someone some sort of money right when you add all that up I I talked to a hotel it's a it's a single hotel it's not like a change to single out and they said that they're spending a hundred thousand dollars unmasks a hundred thousand dollars on masks.

Nolan #3 - Insomnia / Blow the Man Down / True History of the Kelly Gang

"From Chicago. This is film spotting. I'm Adam Kanner and I'm Josh. Larsen can't be easy to keep working after three days. No sleep to keep focus. You're seeing things yet. Cause little flashes tricks alight that's Robin Williams with Al Pacino in Christopher Nolan's insomnia from two thousand and two as the follow up to his mind. Bending breakout hit. Memento insomnia struck some at the time as a frustratingly straightforward thriller. This week we continue our Nolan who've review with a fresh look plus we'll have thoughts on three new releases all available online more. Can I get up Pacino ahead? Unfilled SPOTTING Welcome to film spotting Josh. The theaters are closed. But the movies keep coming at least if you know where to look this week. We've got reviews of three new releases. Include ONE. That's definitely a golden brick. Were the debut. That's the cozy noir thriller. Blow the man down a feature debut set in Downey's main and the down under set the true history of the Kelly gang from director. Justin Kurt Sel and the high school set Sela and the spades one. You caught up with Josh Ross. Going to continue our Christopher Nolan who've review with two thousand? Two's insomnia the black sheep. Maybe of the Nolan filmography. We'll see if it does deserve that reputation later in the show first though let's talk some new movies for a change including that Australian import true history of the Kelly gang mother soldier pan. You cost me you. Can that back a child? It is already traveling. Full tilt toward the men are would become. That's from the trailer for True History of the Kelly gang which is available to rent ondemand this weekend. The director is Justin Kerr. Zal who previously made twenty eleven the snow town murders than in two thousand fifteen. He did Macbeth. Which starred Michael Faster and Marion Cotillard? All three of them re teamed for two thousand sixteen assassin's creed now. Kelly gang is set in colonial Australia. Where Kelly and his group of anarchists violently rebel against their British rulers nineteen. Seventeen George MCI plays Ned Kelly. The film also stars Russell. Crowe Nicholas Holt Thomasson. Mackenzie and Charlie Hunnam so strong. Cast their Adam. You're able to get an early look at this one before. It's on demand release. Did the cast live up to. Its Promise House the film in general some of it definitely did in terms of the cast. This is actually my first. Kerr Zal film. Haven't seen any of the other three that you mentioned despite the fact that Michael Fast Bender has been in those two that you mentioned and I'm always down for Good Shakespeare Adaptation. I can't compare obviously this film the Kelly Gang to his adaptation of Macbeth specifically but there is a lot of the Scottish play in his telling of Ned Kelly. Se Davis from our beloved. The Baba Duke plays his mother in this film and she is not someone to cross. She's domineering she's vengeful. It's born from years of oppression as a woman and as an Irish woman living under English rule in Australia. You hear her in the trailer. Seda a young Ned. You're a man. Now you go out and show the world. This isn't a gentle mother's encouragement. It's an order and like Macbeth himself. As ned gets closer to his fate the matter he gets and that unhinged hallucinatory spirit is. What colonel taps into visually think about the late nineteenth century? We get in. John Hill coats the proposition as a counterpoint. This is not that at all. This is realism clashing with fantasy to the point where there are times in certain sequences and shots. Josh especially a recurring motif of a man riding a horse. That feels more like more door than the Bush way outside Melbourne. And so I've dropped Macbeth. I've dropped Lord of the rings throw in the assassination of Jesse James by the Coward. Robert Ford and the pop aesthetic of Sofia Coppola's Marie Antoinette. Except with punk instead and you get some sense of what watching the true history of the Kelly. Gang is really like which may sound really amazing to you and other people. Yeah I'm I'm hooked so far. Yeah it's definitely a lot and honestly it was a little bit too much for me. Wants so much to be this fiery sneer. That doesn't conform do conventional biography and it's full of these big ideas about colonialism and storytelling and masculinity and challenging gender and sexual norms. The gang the Kelly gang actually wears dresses for me. It's just all too much of a performance of assault to really embrace and actually MCI is part of it. He's a really intriguing presence and has an unsettling physicality that he definitely brings to this role. A presence was kind of all he was in nineteen seventeen. That's kind of by the design of that film and I haven't read anything about his performance but I wouldn't be shocked to learn that he went really method here that he he went so deep. And as I said there's there's an intensity to it there's a real physicality to it but he's burrowed so deep into it. So deep into Ned Kelly psyche that he never emerges for me and I can appreciate the audacity of what Kerr's doing here and his. I our first shot of young. Ned actually is him peering through a slit in his makeshift home while his mother is engaged in a sex act with a paying customer. That's a British officer played by Hunnam and then later at the end it is big showdown with authorities. He's wearing iron over his head for protection. With the sliver is is that matches that exact same point of view so crucial knows what he's doing absolutely and he does have a really game cast Russell. Crowe shows up for a little bit in this movie. And there's a lot of fun as outlaw. Who Basically pays for? He buys a young Ned as an indentured servant to teach him the trade. And I really like Nicholas Holt. In this movie. He shows up maybe about midway through as a really charming despicable and entitled English constable. Who BEFRIENDS NED in the family? Until the family decides that they're not going to subjugate themselves to him like he expects everyone to do so some juicy fund performances here and crystals definitely doing allot as I said in terms of the filmmaking sounds like there might even be a little bit of animal kingdom in there too with the mother son Dynamic and of course the Australians setting so I. I'm intrigued by those comparisons. We'll we'll have to see if the catch up with if it works a little bit better for me. The True History of the Kelly gang is available to rent on demand right. Now the new one you caught up with Josh is called Sela and the spades the directing debut of Theresa Poh. It had its debut back in January at Sundance and it came to Amazon prime. This past weekend in your letterbox review you wrote any movie that mixes the DNA of mean girls. Brick and schooldays has my attention. We're all over the place with our references in this show so far. Tell me more. Yeah this this could be a lazy short and in some ways doing this exercise. But I think it's it is really helpful in this case because those are great films with distinct styles each trying to do something that maybe you hadn't quite seen before done in that way and mixing it all together is really exciting. That also puts a ton of pressure on a relatively small film like Sela and the spades and so I don't know if it's the sort of pressure this movie can entirely bare but I like that. All of these elements are in here that the basic scenario is selling. The speights takes place at an elite boarding school and we follow the illicit dealings and also the the relationships among various student factions there called and each of these factions. They're essentially like criminal gangs. So Sela played by Lovey Simone. She runs the drug-dealing spades. And you know there are maybe some Macbeth Lady Macbeth specifically comparisons to make here in her ambition and the way she holds grip on power. She does take an underclassmen under her wing. But as we come to learn you know it may not be the most altruistic reasons that underclassmen played by Celeste O'Connor now both of those performances are really strong by Simone and O'Connor There are some good supporting turns to. I could see this being one of those smaller. First films where two or three of the actors in them and this happened with mean girls as well right pop up in later films and you really see what what great talents.

Fashion History Now

"So this week April. I thought we were Kinda start talking about fashion wink. We're on the tail end of the month of quote Unquote Fashion Week. We are currently witnessing all the Paris runway shows and I thought this would actually be a great opportunity to suggest a instagram. Follow to our listeners. At Robin Given our OB. I N. G. I. V. H. A. N. She's a fashion critic for the Washington Post and pass dressed guest that absolutely. She came on the show and our very first season to talk to us about the battle over cy which happened in nineteen seventy three and it was basically like a fashion show face off between French. Katori as an American designers. Yes so that was an amazing episode but she is an incredible critic. She's very thoughtful and insightful about her coverage of fashion that I think a lot of our listeners will really appreciate for instance today. She's posting about the Balenciaga show. And she's saying that. The show is thoughtful but she says quote. Thoughtful just stressful. It's very ominous. I think it's kind of a commentary on climate change. I haven't read much else about it. But she also has been writing about kind of the feminist ideologies that Inspire Maria Grazia. Carey's creations for Dr. And how you know that. The fashions and the runway she presents don't really reflect those feminists beliefs. They still reflect this kind of feminine ideal of a woman which is a little counter intuitive or counter to feminism for all women representing all women. That's something that's I guess. Problematic throughout fashion she also has commenting about Virgil Oslo off-white collection. She just doesn't get it. I don't know if you've seen that yet. But he was sending like half Parkas and half tool dresses down the runway. Yes and not only that but one of those tool dresses was actually ripped off. I think it was from givenchy. I don't know if Jeevan she but she ought. There's definitely been comparisons to victor and Ross tool creations and kind of cut out creations. Like it's definitely something that's definitely probably been done before. But I thought the fashion writer Tony Glenville who you could also follow on instagram. How To really insightful? Commentary about some of the collections? That have hit the runway today and he wrote that it's time fashion. Stop treating US too. Don't care close. You know kind of these clothes that we can't really wear in real life. He says you know when you start thinking. The future and designing fashion aware in the real world think about fashion to keep and cherish and fashion to make women look strong and confident. It's not taking the fun out of fashion. It's actually thinking on the subject of fashion as Global Business. And he goes on. That fashion is a creative force. An employer of millions repository of tradition. And Crass let's think about how it can survive in the future and then I wanted to kind of talk to you about this April because he ends with costume belongs in museums. Fashion belongs in our lives and I was curious what your thoughts are on about that. Do you agree with him? Well I mean I think. That's some problematic terminology in terms of exactly how we as fashion historian. Use those words right because all fashion is costume but all costume isn't necessarily fashion. Does that make any sense? Yeah and I think. He's trying to distinguish between this idea of like fashion as as costume as kind of like this performance. Art as a something. That isn't really representative of what we would wear in every day and specifically he was talking about the mosquitoes down by Jeremy Scott. I'm recently which he literally had. It was very much a let them eat cake. Marie-antoinette moment with like tons of Pan Yeas and women in the you know those huge waves reflective of late eighteenth century fashion but they literally came down the runway dressed cakes and like references to eighteenth century panelled gown so a lot of people probably aren't going to wear those clothes. I guess the argument would be if we're just creating fashion for. I guess this like a federal shock value to send it down the runway. Is it still worth it? Should we be doing that or should we be more conscious of the environment and creating fashion? That isn't actually meant to be put on bodies. Well I that actually kind of leads me into the the follow that I want to talk about. Because you said WHO's GonNa wear these things? Well perhaps this next segment of the fashion buying public. Which are drag Queens? So I can definitely see some of those drag Queens on Rupaul drag race adoring that mosquito collection and I would like to recommend to. Our listeners is to follow an instagram account. Called at Drag Bombs D. R. A. G. B. O. M. B. S. and this instagram account is hysterical is actually run by the brother of a former dressed guests. Terrace ain't James. Who CAME ON SEASON? One and talk to us about the intersection in history a sustainability in the fashion industry but her brother. Jordan. He's hilarious. He is obsessed with repulsed dragway. And He's also obsessed with lush products. The cosmetics Carney and so what he does he finds pictures of drag queens and then pairs them up with the lush product that they're outfit and they are hysterical. Some of them are so dead on and so perfect. I showed it to a couple of my friends one time and I tell everybody to follow this all the time. And they're like oh no he has to be the designer of the products and the drag queens are his inspiration but no no no. No that is not the case. He's just really really good at this. So if you WANNA put a giggle in your day follow Jordan on drag vase and I promise you it's GonNa show Ganic smile at your face. I know and I just speaking of. I've never seen this account so I just went to it. And it's Jordan the Raven Claw Lachey. A master bather and he says no drag. Queens harmed in the making of this account. It is pretty incredible. How spot on a lot of these comparisons are. Wow okay well check that out dress listeners. Instagram accounts for you to follow and check out some other things for you to watch them suggestions of some films. I would like to suggest that I just watched. Actually this past week I came across. It's actually a couple years old but I had not seen it. It's a documentary called my generation. That's streaming on Amazon. Have you heard or seen of that? April I have not but you better bet I'm GONNA put it on my list now. I really really liked it Because it is almost entirely comprised of archival footage and photographs. So there's no there's no inter spicing with interviews of people in the modern day there. They just take those voices from those interviews. It's narrated by Michael Caine. It's kind of like has generation and his experience in the nineteen sixties and he interviews. People like famed photographer. David Bailey models penelope tree Mary. Quant twiggy Vidal Sassoon. People interviewed there so integral to this period. And this this documentary. That's really about in the nineteen sixties it just reveals how integral fashion was to the experience of the nineteen sixties by all these interviews. So I highly suggest checking that

'Fight or Flight' Nerves Make Mice Go Gray

"They say that Marie Antoinette's hair turned white the night before she lost her head to the guillotine but constraints really have such a dramatic effect on hair-color a new study in mice concludes at Ken and credits overactive.

Because changes in the stem cell population translates to try and justify hair color which very visible and easy to identify. Jacek sue the study senior author to start. She and her colleagues subjected mice to some rodent sized stressors like having their cage tilted their bedding dampened or their lights left on all night. So what did we find? We found stress indeed leads to premature hair grain in mice by took a long time for us to actually narrow down how occurs first they thought it could be the immune system attacking the millennia site stem cell population however mayes lack immune cells steel.

That's when they turn their attention to the sympathetic nervous system which or constraints the body's overall reaction to stress including the classic fight or flight. Response those nerves reach out to our muscles organs and yes even our hair the nerve terminals wrap around each follicle like a ribbon and sooner team cut. Those connections the stem cells were spared and the animals kept their shiny black coat even in the face of minor discomfort. The findings appear in the journal Nature. It's unclear whether the same sympathetic nerves make us gray as we age but the results provide hope that we may someday be able to fight to hold onto our natural hair color and avoid that monthly flight to the hairdresser.

"The problem was before the necklace us had been finished Louis. The fifteenth came down with smallpox and died. His mistress was politely dismissed and sent to a nunnery and the necklace had never been paid for Bom. Ba Sash were left with a debt of millions of dollars a massive diamond necklace and no one to sell it to the natural choice. Perhaps the only woman wealthy enough to buy the necklace was the new Queen Marie Antoinette. The young queen was already sending ripple waves through court for her extravagance when it came to her dresses and hair as you know her mother Maria Teresa wrote wrote. I have always been of the opinion. Fashions should be followed in moderation but should never be taken to extremes a beautiful young woman a graceful as for Queen has no need for such madness Marie Antoinette did not heed her mother's advice. If anyone was going to buy the massive of necklace it would be marie-antoinette so in seventeen seventy eight. The two jewelers came to die bearing the massive necklace hoping hoping to entice the queen. The King Louis. The sixteenth graciously offered to buy it for his wife but she turned it down. It's too expensive expensive. The young marie-antoinette said the money would be better spent on worships. That's what she said but whether or not you actually believed it is up for debate. marie-antoinette never did seem to be the type of person who would have trouble spending money on clothes or jewellery. What's more plausible? At least two you're humble narrator is that marie-antoinette didn't want to waltz around for cy in a massive attention grabbing necklace that had been designed designed for another woman and not just any woman a mistress and the despise Madame de Berry that but whether it was just her love of warships or hatred for Madame de Berry the Andrews out was the same. The jewelers were stuck with a multi-million dollar necklace that nobody wanted wanted. They tried other luxury markets all over Europe no dice in a desperate move. They came back to her cy three years later. Turn in seventeen eighty one the necklace still unsold and tried to sell it once again to Marie Antoinette. For her husband to gift her for the birth with of their son. Louis Joseph the King is said to have briefly considered a military defeat distracted him and tech an expensive purchase off the table at that point the jewelers admitted to themselves that there was no way Marie Antoinette was ever going to buy their necklace and they were right she never would would at least not the real marie-antoinette it's about now that I should introduce a woman named John on the mud in a tiny village in the region of Champagne zone the moat was born into poverty.

On This Day in History: The Hope Diamond Was Stolen

"Day was September. Eleven seventeen ninety two the hope diamond along with other other crown jewels was stolen when six men broke into the house where the tools were stored the history of the blue diamond dates back to the mid seventeenth century we when jean-baptiste to Varney was in possession of a diamond and that was about one hundred fifteen metric carat the diamond most likely came from a mine in India India and Taverny described its color as violent. The diamond was one of the many stones he still to King Louis the Fourteenth of France in sixteen sixty the eight it was re cut several years later and became known as the French blue. The diamond is blue because of the small amounts of Boron present it in seventeen forty nine. King Louis the fifteenth had the court jeweler reset the diamond and a piece of ceremonial jewelry decades later during the French Revolution King Louis the Sixteenth and Marie Antoinette attempted to flee France and the crown jewels were given to the government in September of seventeen ninety two while the King Marie Antoinette were imprisoned thieves broke into the royal storehouse and stole the French blue diamond during a a nearly week long looting of the crown jewels according to some historians one of the thieves took the diamond to Howrah thin to London where he tried to sell it the diamond's whereabouts for the next couple of decades are unclear but in eighteen twelve a large John was recorded as being in the possession of a London diamond diamond merchant named Daniel Eliason that demand was likely the modern hope diamond cut from the French Blue King George the fourth worth of the United Kingdom later acquired the stone and it was probably sold upon his death to pay off debt once the diamond came into possession the hope of banking family it became known as the hope diamond since then the stone has been sold several times reset and re cut the diamond made it to the US in nineteen eleven when Pierre Cartier sold it to American heiress Evelyn Walsh McLean in nineteen Kim fifty eight Harry Winston Inc donated the diamond to the Smithsonian institution it weighs forty five point fifty two carrots and the Smithsonian me an institution describes is color as fancy dark grayish blue the pinned it surrounding the diamond is made up sixteen white diamonds and it's necklace chain contains taints forty-five white diamonds. The hope diamond is now housed at the Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History. It has a reputation for being curse since it's associated with a bunch of unfortunate events.

The Secret History of the Future: Meat and Potatoes

"Can you tell us about the beyond me Burgers Burgers so basically the Hamburg is really amazing because taste like proper me is now meet my piece with Cabot until our oil okay. I'M GONNA try one of those. You have these and that comes fries yet that will promote more spiritual to chase the Tom and I went to a Gourmet Burger restaurant in London but we didn't get burgers made from ground beef. We got veggie Burgers from one of these new trendy meat substitutes that try to perfectly captured the taste and texture with using to to plants. We give all right. What do you think visually assess? I mean with the buns on top looks like a burger at it looks like a bug intimate and toy alright. Are you ready to take a bike and that's pretty good. It's pretty satisfying. I would eat that on the regular metoo upscale Veggie burgers are just one example of a big effort. That's going gas gas emissions. emissions. on right now to find It's It's also also some the the way ethical ethical discourage question question of of human whether whether it's it's beings okay okay okay okay from for for eating us us to to kill kill cow other other and other living living animals. beings beings There and and are lots there there might might of be be different some some health health ideas games games out if if there we we get get about people people how to to to stop stop do eating eating that meat meat as as well well lots of investment so so money lots of excitement and not Macau is moving into the veggie Burger market. We've been we'll be commercially viable. A whole bunch of reasons. Why getting rid of meat is an attractive idea idea? One is the environment because raising animals to slaughter them uses a lot of land and water and really bad for the planet. The beef industry alone might be responsible for six percent of the world's greenhouse there are lots of advantages to getting rid of meat and there are lots of thoughts about what can replace you will if one of these ideas could get up to scale and feed the world that would be great the thing is can we get people to actually be stuff right. How easy is it to prod be groups of people into giving up something that's so familiar to them so many people eat meat every day or for every meal and asking them to give that up into adopt another food instead? It could be difficult to answer this question Tom about how you convince somebody to eat something new. I actually don't want to focus on the veggie Burger. That's on one side of our played here. I actually want us to talk about the thing on the other half of our plate. which is these French fries or rather? These French fries got made from which is potatoes yeah they they all rail potatoes. I hope they're real potatoes. I guess we'll to find out when we take a bite. Good fries yeah from sleep. I'm so Stevenson from the economist. I'm Thomas added. Welcome to secret history of the future. quite quite common common in in Europe. Europe. <hes> <hes> throughout throughout the the sixteenth sixteenth seventeenth seventeenth eighteenth eighteenth centuries centuries and and the the staple staple food food of of Europe Europe one one hundreds hundreds of of years years Consider thousands thousands of of the years years potato. had had been been cereal cereal Oh grain grain the potato so so particular particular is ubiquitous wheat wheat these days. oats oats You've got French fries. Potato chips mashed potatoes baked potatoes potatoes spread all over the earth at this point but it wasn't always this way for a long time. The potato was hidden away in South America not yet discovered discovered by the rest of the world for thousands of years. Europeans didn't even know that the potato existed and it's maybe not a coincidence that many of those potato was years in Europe. Were very lean years. Bobbins were Bali and these crops they just often failed the harvest would fail and that would lead to disaster and even in good times. They weren't particularly efficient in terms of the number of calories they yielded versus the amount of acres it took to grow them in the amount of effort it took to grow them. Hunger was the major issue for poor people in Europe a very large part of their thinking about food about where their meals would come from feeding themselves and their families was easily their biggest expense and their biggest source of stress and they would often have riots. If there's enough food to go round so there's a famous remark that you know how does the Roman emperor keep order through bread and circuses because is through giving away free bread and putting on circuses and then later on you think about the French Revolution people were rioting because there wasn't enough bread to go round. Marie Antoinette Queen is supposed to have settled if they bred. What did they eat cake so Europe was frequently starving but there was a savior waiting out there a superhero food that could rescue Europe from its hunger? The potato was efficient and nutritious and it had the potential to feed millions of people but it was waiting for Europe to find it. Spanish explorers were the first Europeans to encounter the potato in South America in the fifteen thirty s when they were conquering the Inca Empire and potato seemed to have made it to the Canary Islands just off the west coast of Africa in the fifteen sixties. Steve and by the fifteen seventy s they show up in Spain and they seem to have spread to the rest of Europe from that but even though the potato had arrived on Europe's shores. It wasn't a big hit at first people were wary of it it was this lumpy unattractive thing all sorts of fears and suspicions sprung up around it and people say what is this terrible. Food is not fit for humans. It's gonNA give us leprosy. It's awful. It's disgusting. Nobody could like that. It's not appetizing. This is the Food Writer A. B.. Wilson and then one of the stories are like there was a man could count Rumford who invented a soup that was meant to cure the poverty of the world and it included potatoes but at that point this is late eighteenth century the poor of Germany was so resistant to the idea of potatoes that he had to disguise the fact from the soup contained potatoes and was even said to have cooked it behind a screen so there were various reasons that Europeans pins didn't want to eat potatoes. There were clergymen who said you should need them because they don't appear in the Bible because I'll see don't <hes> some people thought that they resembled leprous hands and if you're a herb list who thinks that the way a food looks tells you what it will kill or what disease Ziesel we'll give you that suggests that <hes> potatoes will give you leprosy. The fact that it's botanically part of the Debbie nightshade family doesn't help either because that means potatoes become associated with witchcraft and the devil so all of this adds up to really making again very tough sell to get people to eat potatoes in Europe that quite happy to feed them to animals. They just don't want to eat them themselves. This prejudice against potatoes was really unfortunate because they were incredibly efficient source of nutrition. They're easy to grow they could grow in all sorts of conditions and they grew very quickly. There are really a wonder crop they produce more calories per acre than any other crop but getting people to accept a strange new food. No matter what a good idea it would be can be a real challenge. Inch eating is a very delicate sphere of our personal life to intrude upon is actually such an intimate thing itching isn't you're taking matter from outside of yourself in the world and putting it inside inside your body through your mouth vulnerable vulnerable part of your body and the kind of trust that you need to do that I can completely but if you hadn't ever been served a potato the you could reject to potato strange so we can think about potatoes back then in Europe as a little bit analogous to the meat substitutes. We're seeing today in both cases. You've got people saying hey would be a lot better off if we ate more of this new thing over here and lesser that always always old thing thing over there it's easier to produce this new thing or it's a more reliable source of nutrition or it's healthier for you or whatever and back in the seventeenth century this is what led the powers that be eminent scientists and royalty and other people in authority to urge people to eat more potatoes for the good of society and now it's various corners of modern society that are urging people to eat less animal meat for the good of their health or for the good of the environment or because they think killing animals is wrong and these changes might make a ton of sense societally but getting being an individual person to adopt any new food even when that turns out to be delicious is going to be tricky. I mean tomatoes. I mean that's the one that just gives me for centuries. Italians had never seen tomatoes watches. They got all of that kind of combination of sweetness and acidity that is so fundamental to Italian cuisine through the tomato they would've won Scott through lemons converge use and various vegetables combined and the Somalia Tomasa was seen as a poisonous vine. People thought it was gonNA make embrace it. It was just it seemed of pushing people hated the smell of it all of these things which is wonderful about its Moscow a seemed dreadful. I mean if Italians were grossed out by tomatoes for hundreds of years. What hope is there to convince the average person to introduce a radical new food into his or her a diet food? Is something much much easier than the tomato and and okay. We're on the street in London. I'm quite day where the economist officers are outside. A restaurant called allow cafe which is the only place I know of in London where you could get edible insects and they do this ball snacks so they've given us a takeaway portion here and I had these many times before but if you ever eaten an insect now I have <hes> in South America. I tried some grubs. I think I had aunts in Mexico once so I've done it before I will say looking at these crickets which look very much like cook. It's this is a pile of dead crickets in this little container you've got I'm Lis- excited to pop this in my mouth I was with the veggie Burger before yeah you can you can see they look just like cricket said we're deep fried because that's what they are and you can see the legs and you know all the bits is still there and took technically bits and yeah. It's some I agree. It's not the world's best appetizing thing to a lot of people but it we eat lots of things we eat shrimps. We maybe a different anyway. Let's have a cricket grab. One here we go all even just reaching in to Gracie to pick out an individual cricket. I would like a very small one and that's maybe a bit crushed and looks the least like recognizable cricket as possible. I don't even want to go okay got it. Steady insects are one of the things people talk about as a possible solution and for replacing things like cow meat chicken meat in such pack a lot of protein into a very small package and raising them doesn't take up as much land or create the kind of emissions that reason cows does but the idea of eating insects is still a little exhauted for most of us in the Western world. Can we really convince be groups of people eat bugs. Oh that's not bad at all. It's nights and nutty taste. It's basically like ticket. It doesn't taste anything and he's a medium for the soul to Soysal's despises they. Put on that Oh yeah I think it's great. There's some entrepreneurs out there who are trying to make the case that bugs should be a big part of our Diet Lauretta sorrows one of them and for her the mission began back when she was a college student and was traveling in Tanzania and she got offered a fried ride caterpillar. She thought it was delicious. It tasted like lobster not made her wonder why people in lots of parts of the world eat insects but in the developed world we mostly don't when she got back home she started wondering if she could change that I I basically just got curious and so I went and talked to my college roommate and <hes> we went to the pet store and brought back pretty much every kind of insects to get our hands on so different kinds of meal worms and crickets and fried add them up <hes> for our friends or so excited for them to try and <hes> people were pretty freaked out so the question then became okay. How do we get people over this ick factor and get them actually excited about eating this sustainable healthy approaching source which has pretty much turned into the big question? We've actually been trying to answer the last five years. This quest turned into a company called chirps. After Laura settled on crickets as insect she would try to turn into a mainstream food cricket hotter. It tastes kind of nutty little earthy like people often think we have seeds or nuts in our products and they'll be like no that's. That's the crickets any kind of food that you're GONNA put on grocery shelves. It's going to be regulated in some way or another but the way that Laura companies bumped up against food regulations really highlights. Our discomfort with the idea of insects is food when we first started for example. We had a hard time with the Massachusetts State Health Department. They kept telling us our job. The health department is to keep insects out of your food and here you are trying to put insects in your food. Crickets get raised on a cricket firm which isn't like a regular farm. Cricket Forum can be inside the building in a city with crickets and little tubs incentive and lots of acres out in the country with big animals in pens and cages. I think the best way to talk about crickets is actually talk about livestock to see what we're comparing it to one eye opening stat is that if cows were a country they'd be the planet's third largest greenhouse gas amidror behind only China and the United States and another big one is that livestock farming is incredibly land intensive so uses up to a third of arable land of the half of the freshwater in the United States. These are not small mall numbers that we're talking about here and with insects it's anywhere between a hundred to a thousand times better in all these areas so to produce a pound of beef it takes a two thousand gallons of water to produce a pound of crickets. It takes about one gallon of water. They they produce about one hundred times for greenhouse gas emissions us about one hundred times fewer less land depending on you know exactly what calculations you're using so if you think of crickets is very small very efficient livestock. This sounds pretty good. It's a nutrient three in dense food. That's high in protein. It can be grown with less impact on the environment. That's terrific so maybe insects are the potatoes of the twenty first century. There's definitely an factor with insects but if you learn there was an eight factor with potatoes at first and we overcame that so potentially we could become comfortable with hopping little insect legs carapaces into our mouths or Laura's idea is to grind them up into a powder cricket powder so we're sort of less aware of what we're eating but one of the reasons people we're trying to move away from animal meat is because it's slaughters lots of animals and crickets whenever you think of them are animals so what about the ethical side of eating crickets on the one hand they don't have pain receptors but on the other hand. They're still living beings presumably. If you
