The negative plays while. I'm looking at this. Read this five turnovers. Eleven to these four hundred and forty one yards and five sex all the negative things that you don't want to happen. They happen for the. Las vegas raiders. So as much as the falcons were able to raise their level. The las vegas raiders. Gifted the falcons win. Because they didn't play very well they didn't take care of the football. So here's a couple of things. Just on the falcons here. Can you mentioned at the raiders.

But for the falcons who have long been plagued by the pass rush right. They've been trying to find the pass rush. They've spent high draft capital on it in the past. Like wanna ask you like some of these names that you associate with the falcons attempts to pass right. You go back to beasley. You did it for a year.

So they looked into ways to make sure that he disappeared forever I considered using quick lime to dissolve his body. But after some tinkering, they realized that it would take far too long. So they turned their attention towards the more powerful sulfuric acid once the body was placed in an unmarked plot at the prison facility, the prison staff poured the acid into the coffin. The acid, it was said to have dissolved the body within twelve hours. Despite this gruesome act authorities weren't entirely sure. They'd successfully eradicated the Shawl Gosh problem. The government wanted to make sure that the assassin had acted alone. So they arrested Emma Goldman and held her in custody for a few weeks. But ultimately, there was no evidence that she had coordinated with Shaw Gosh and she was released in fact, no anarchists seemed to have any connection with Shaw Gosh some admitted that he approached them but insisted they turned him away. They said he was overeager and many believed he was a spy. In the end authorities had to settle on the fact that President Mckinley was killed by a lone wolf who only succeeded because.

NASA To Send A New Toilet To International Space Station
"Be challenging. Even simple tasks here on Earth are much more difficult in orbit like going to the bathroom. But that's about to get a little easier, especially for the growing number of women.

So it can be fixed easily in space because the agency plans to send this toilet not only to the international space station but to the moon. And one day maybe Mars. To do that Engineers have to shrink down the system, says NASA's Melissa McKinlay. The space capsules are very small and use of the toilet area takes up a lot of space on a spacecraft and we want to get this is usable is possible, but minimize it where we can going to the bathroom in space is not easy and space toilets are complex Number two right here, show you, but you see, it's pretty small astronauts, Sonny Williams demonstrated how to use one when she Is on the in 2012 in space.

David Archer previews the Atlanta Falcons
"The Atlanta Falcons will do so with a former Falcons quarterback. Now he is their longtime color analysts on the radio network for Atlanta. And that is David Archer. David Hope all is. Well. Thanks for doing this. When we look at the Falcons, they made a big offseason acquisition getting Todd Gurley We don't know where the health is of Todd Gurley. What do you expect at a Todd Gurley coming over from l. A to Atlanta for this upcoming season? Well, be honest with you. I think we're expecting a lot of early and mainly in the Red zone. If you look at Todd Gurley's numbers, even with with so called quote unquote down near Around 900 yards rushing, still had 12 touchdowns. All 12 of those touchdowns came in the red Zone, and I think that Atlanta if they could find a way to run the football down close Help three up the talented weapons that Ryan has on the perimeter. Now, listen, you have a little bit more of a potent attack a little bit more looking a little bit more like what? You looked like a 16 when Avante Freeman and Tevin Coleman. We're carrying the ball down there close and created that problem in the run game. Atlanta has not had that over the last couple of seasons. I think that's where they expect Todd Gurley to make his main hey is down there in the red Zone. With the way that you probably have to manage his reps as a running back the rest of the running back room. Is there something that jumps out to you? Yeah, I think it's a good group. Really Do I think that when you look at Brian, Ill in the way, Brian Gillis Kamani together that Hawkins drafted a couple of years ago, Brian Handsome solid moments a year ago. Quadri Allyson. Kid at Pittsburgh rookie from a year ago. Uh, kind of woke himself. A little bit of a roll is a short yardage guy. Â£225 Goal line Guy, four touchdowns. Hopefully, you know, Smith can come back. He was injured in the game a year ago. I believe against the Rams in which he was trying to pick up a Blitzer, which he shouldn't be here should be doing, but he is an outstanding receiver out of the backfield. And a good change of pace back at the back, So they get to three young guys that I think you could lean on. And like you said, Take some of that. Load off. Assad, Girl. Let's get to the next down. And when we do so, we take a look at Matt Ryan and Julio Jones. The two big names in that organization. Do you still believe that this team could be a play off team once again with Matt Ryan and Julio Jones? I do, but it's you know, obviously, it's about you know your supporting cast and you do some things on the other side of the ball, and I'm sure there's a question you've got to worry about the defense's side the football, But there there's a little area in the offensive line. The left guard has been a little bit leaky, right guard's been a little bit leaky because of some injuries and things that they could shore up that into your part of the offensive line. Ryan's Like most classic quarterbacks climb in the pocket. They got to be able to give him that opportunity. Do so if you get into your pressure and accurate from problems, one game will help in that regard, but Yeah. Julio Jones, 16 seconds, 1300 yard seasons. Matt Ryan, nine consecutive 4000 yard seasons. I don't see the one those guys backing off. When you talk about that offensive line to follow up on that I'm a big fan of Matt Hennessy. Being a temple grad, really smart football player puts in a lot of work. Is he going to make an immediate impact in your number one? Yeah, There's always a question that he's certainly in the mix to be the starting guard. There's no question about that. I think that there's ah lot excitement around when he brings the table and and obviously the heir apparent, Alex Mack, probably its center. So Alex back in a little bit longer to still have a good football any But I need to put some guys around him that Khun taken, it could be in there and we had German Brown and James Carpenter guys that could not stay on the field. There was some solid moments from those two big veteran players, but they did not stay on the field and consistency. In the interior specialist that left guard spotted Kennedy ultimately will probably win that job and be the starter that guard let's get to the next down. All right, David Archer. When they flip the switch here and go to the other side of the ball defensively, it was an up and down year for the defense, but it seemed like they did finish in a better spot than what they did earlier on in the season. You could probably say that for the entire team with the Atlanta Falcons this division. Is loaded with offensive talent. You know what the Saints are. Now you have Tom Brady and the division with Tampa Bay, and I'll be curious to see what Teddy Bridgewater does with the Panthers. What's your read on the Falcons defense entering 2020 Well, it's an uncertain situation obviously went on God. Dante Fowler, Dad's pressure off the edge contact. McKinley realized what they thought they had when they drafted him a couple of years and the number one spot picked up Charles Haley, who, ironically, was in the same draft. And raided a route the same attack McKinley are Charles Harris. I'm sorry. Charles. Charles Charles Haley. Right way. I'd like to have the guy that was rushing the pastor there for both the Cowboys in the 40 Niners. That would be great, but Harris. He does have some raw talent there. Can't he realize that I'm the Falcon Tutelage will have to wait and see Grady dear. It's an emerging star in the tackle position and Marlon Davidson, Vienna and an interesting ad, a guy that has the versatility to play inside. Maybe in past situations and also play the perimeter as a 34 defensive didn't run down situations. The answer at all Burn second round draft pick of the fact that they think they've upgraded their defensive line. It'll have to be upgraded because you get extremely young secondary. Probably gonna have a rookie a corner starting your nickels, a second year guy in your other corners of third year, guys, So there's a lot of young players on the perimeter need to get some pass rush speed up the thought process for the quarterback. Let's get to the final down. Alright. I'm surprised that Dan Quinn is Bacca's the head football coach for the Lancer Falcons. What does he have to do this year to keep his job and Is that seats the warm because, like I said, I was surprised that they brought him back for this year. It is warm. I think that it's fortunate they brought him back because of the current situation with the pandemic and the uncertainties, so some continuity certainly has played into Atlanta Falcons off season. I think they've had a solid offseason, much as you can, with the limitations. They're attached to this year, So I think that it was good in retrospect that, uh, Mr Black decided to keep Dan Quint on, but I think he's got there. They've got a bit pushed for a playoff spot. I think they've got to be. They can't come out of the box one in seven. It's got to be a team. It's in the hunt of the entire way. As you said, it's going to be outstanding division with outstanding quarterback play, but they have to be in the hunt to be a part of the postseason play. If they do that. And I think the fans will be a little bit of stab on the wound for the fans. But if you get out to a slow start, it would not surprise me. If if Mr Blank made some kind of decision mid season on coach Boy and I think, coach when is the right guy for the job Now it's put up or shut up. He scored a touchdown will go for two here Oscar. One more question This team was 11 5 We all know the deal they were in the Super Bowl blew the 28 23 lead. The next year, they did go 10 and six, the last two years. It's seven and nine. If you had to identify the biggest reason why this team has regressed, and I know they've had some injuries to but overall if it's not the health of the team, what's the biggest thing that you look at? Why this team wasn't able to recreate that magic from 2016 and 2017? I think their inconsistency ball on both sides of the football in conversion, down situations and in the red zone. I think Atlanta's done a great job of moving the ball from 20 to 20 But when they get in the red zone, they bogged down and settle for too many threes. And I think in turn the defense's side of the football. What about 22 23 scoring defense coming up 25 points a game. They've got to find a way to get more stops in the red zone. That's probably the answer that you could probably get from all teams struggled and not made the playoff teams, but I certainly think That that's identifiable with the Falcons over the last couple years, the inability down deep in the red Zone both on offensive defense, Julio Jones, he's Ah Hall of Fame player. We all know that one of the better wide receivers in the league He's only had one year of double digit touchdowns, going back to 2012 when he had 10 TUC maybe 10 touchdowns in his fortunes this year. Well, I think he's certainly capable of it. But you got an outstanding receiver on the other side of Calvin Ridley, who's realized his abilities down in the red Zone Pretty close. I think Aidan hearse is going to be a seamless transition from Austin Hooper tight end spot So there are a lot of weapons from that Ryan to get the football too. Don't forget Todd Gurley and how good he is at the back catching the football as well. So I I would say no, I think he's going to be 89 touchdowns. I don't think he goes double digits, but I think there's a lot of guys around him. They're going to score touchdowns. Look for guys somewhere between 13 14 guys catch touchdown passes issue. Say that we appreciate it. Thanks so much. You be well, my

The Teddy Bear!
"Early in the year of Nineteen O one. The manager of the Bronx Zoo in New York got a very unusual letter. The typewritten note was dated January. Second Gentleman I have a small named Jonathan Edwards and we find we do not have the accommodations to keep him so I should like to present him to the Bronx Zoological Gardens. Can you send someone out here to tend to his shipment then written by hand next to this is a further question? I think it says or shall I ship him myself but it's hard to read the messy scribbled handwriting in any case the letter is signed yours. Truly t roosevelt. Now as you might have guessed that T- Roosevelt is Theodore Roosevelt. A man who would soon unexpectedly find himself as the president of the United States. But that probably wasn't the first thing that jumped out to William Hornets manager of the Bronx Zoo. His thoughts were probably something like bear a bear a pet bear in New York. Of course you don't have any accommodations to keep them. Who Does he's a bear and wait. Did you say his name is Jonathan Edwards? Were kind of name. Is that for a bear name. A bear poo or growly or berry made even snuggles. If he's got the right personality but Jonathan Edwards Kinda Weirdo. Oh right teddy. Roosevelt Theodore you see Theodore. Roosevelt had just finished his duty. As governor of New York State that term ended on December thirty first and on that upcoming March fourth he would be sworn in as vice president of the United States in the time between governing and vice president and it seems teddy him. The idol was trying to take care of some personal matters which included but were not limited to a live bear rather than ask the million questions that were surely. On the zookeepers. Mind William Hornets. Just said yes. It was Teddy Roosevelt after all right right but Hornets did ask where on earth the bear came from soon to be vice president. Roosevelt had already moved on to other matters because his reply was short. And Sweet. My dear Mr Hornets. The back came from West Virginia. Very Truly Theodore Roosevelt's. Let's not a lot of information from a man who could be pretty verbose that means he talked a lot and he also wrote a lot dude wrote thirty five books in his lifetime over one hundred and fifty thousand letters to people so you'd think he could have offered a bit more explanation as to what he was doing with a bear at his house a few months prior he did elaborate a bit more in one of those one hundred and fifty thousand letters that he wrote to a friend. He told his pal that some supporters in West Virginia had presented the bear to him as a gift. And well. You can't say no to a gift especially a Harry. One was sharp teeth honestly. A pet bear wasn't entirely off the Charts the Roosevelt while Jonathan Edwards. The bear would eventually go to live in the Bronx Zoo. It might not have felt that much different. From the Roosevelt home to the creature he would have been more than us to being surrounded by a mess of animals. And I'm not talking about the six Roosevelt kids running around the home. I'm talking about all of their pets. The list of Roosevelt family pets goes on and on there was a lizard named bill and a pig named MoD a badger named Josefa and a blue macaw named Eli Gail Barron. Sprinkle was a hen and Peter was of course a rabbit. There are also a whole bunch of Guinea pigs with names. That don't disappoint. They were called Admiral. Dewey Dr Johnson Bishop Tone Fighting Bob Evans and Father O'Grady. As if that weren't enough there was also a one. Legged Rooster Hyena a pony and my favorite a Green Garter. Snake named Emily Spinach. As you can see the Roosevelt's took their pets and their pet names quite seriously. Animal hijinks and Shenanigans were very common among the six Roosevelt kids once when brother. Archie was sick in bed. His siblings hatched a scheme to cheer him up. They lead their pony up the stairs to his room to surprise him which it certainly did but the pony was more excited to see his reflection in a bedroom mirror so much so that he would not leave and then there was the time that Quinton burst into his father's office at the time. Teddy Theodore Right. Sorry Theodore was in the middle of an important closed-door meeting with senators and other politicians closed doors. Don't always mean much to a kid with animals in his pockets and Quinton didn't think twice about interrupting the meeting. The men kindly obliged pause the meeting while the boy threw his arms around his beloved father who Shirley laughed proudly and started to shoot the boy away but Quinton had a surprise. The boy pulled four snakes out of his pocket and place them on the table in the middle of the room. Apparently these men did not have a similar menagerie of animals in their own households because these powerful yet easily frightened men jumped up like popcorn scrambled to the edge of the room. Faster than Greece geese it was surely a funny moment for the Roosevelt's so as we've said Jonathan Edwards would live his days in the Bronx Zoo but he wasn't the only fateful bear in Teddy's life. Okay he wasn't the only fateful bear in Theodore's life no there was another. Roosevelt was sworn in as vice president and March of nineteen o one and six months later in September. He was president of the United States. It wasn't supposed to happen that way. But President William McKinley was assassinated while attending the world's bear in Buffalo New York. Theodore Roosevelt took his place and made history in many ways. Theatre was an extremely energetic. Man Some say he had a photographic memory because he could do things like perfectly recite poems that he had read and not seen again for decades. He read books nearly every day. Some people saw him read two or three pages a minute. He was very proud of his speed reading skills but it wasn't just learning that he engaged in Roosevelt loved the outdoors. In fact as a president he set aside two hundred thirty million acres of land to protect and save so that Americans for many generations could enjoy these forests parks and Animal Sanctuaries Theodore love to spend time in nature himself. He loved to horseback ride and he was also an avid hunter in November of Nineteen. O Two just after his first full year as president. He made a hunting trip to Mississippi on invitation. From the governor of the state there were several other people in the party and before long the president was the only one who had not shot a bear. This was embarrassing for the governor. How could they leave? Teddy out right right right with the feodor so anyway. In an effort to guarantee success for the president's bear hunting trip the guides devised an unfortunate and unkind plan that involved tying a bear to a tree for Roosevelt to shoot when he discovered the creature in such a state. Roosevelt was disgusted and refuse to shoot. What could have been forgotten moment soon? Captured the American imagination and then gave birth to one of the most common items found in kids rooms. All around the world still today. A cartoonist was inspired by the story and sketched an image of Roosevelt refusing to shoot the bear the cartoon ran in the Washington Post which was a major newspaper in it immediately connected Roosevelt to bears in the minds of Americans probably most of whom never even realized that he had a pet bear in New York for a while. One American who saw this was a candy shop owner from Brooklyn New York named Morris Victim. It began with two soft cuddly stuffed toy bears that he and his wife Rose had made. He stuck those bears in the window of his candy shop and called them Teddy bears before long he spent all of his time making those and even started a toy company that would live on for decades. So whether you knew it or not. That teddy bear in your bedroom is named after a president who didn't even like being called Teddy.

The Republican vote from McKinley was unanimous but with vice presidency up for grabs New York. Senator Thomas C Platt nominated the hero of the battle of San Juan Hill. But it was not out of love and respect for Theodore Roosevelt. Roosevelt had written his wave fame from Cuba to the governor's mansion of New York there. His progressive ideas worried. Many Republicans and Senator Platt Wanted Roosevelt out of New York politics by placing him in the vice presidential office. Plant believe Roosevelt would do the least damage to the party and the country mark. Hanna disagreed he said. Don't any of you realize there's only one life between this madman? The presidency. Hannah did not want Roosevelt to have the nomination and Roosevelt did not want either. He declared so openly and frequently and he said on multiple occasions that McKinley lacked backbone. He did not wish to sabotage his own political rise by SADDLING. A dead end job. Under the thumb of a man he viewed as spineless but senator plant proved to privately hate Roosevelt more than Roosevelt publicly hated the vice presidency determined to rid. New York of the governor. Flat began a newspaper campaign to promote Roosevelt's nomination. The public welcomed the idea of nominating a war hero and Roosevelt ultimately gave into the wishes of flat and the public. He agreed to accept the nomination. If the convention voted for him so behind the scenes plaque campaigned hard for his nation. Despite both Mark Hanna and Theodore Roosevelt's desires Roosevelt was unanimously nominated. Join McKinley ticket. Accepting was felt said he would serve the party as a dignified non entity for four years. The election of nineteen hundred became a rematch of eighteen. Ninety six William Jennings Bryan and William McKinley would face off again but this time. The election was riddled with third party. Challengers in eighteen ninety six. The populist party had abandoned nominating their own candidate toback Brian largely because of his pro silver posture. But this time the populace were split. Many again wanted to fuse with Democrats. Toback Brian but many other populace did not and those two factors elected to run businessman. Warren Barker other parties propped up their own candidates. The new anti-imperialist party also often toback the anti-imperialist Brian. The New Prohibition Party ran lawyer John G woolley other new parties included the National Party. The Union Reform Party the United Christian Party and the Social Democratic Party famous for being the first Socialist Party in American history. These socialist nominated union. Leader Eugene debs. Who in eighteen ninety four had been arrested during the pullman rail boycott but in November? None of the third party attempts ultimately received any electoral votes. It was still a fight between McKinley and Brian Justice with the election of eighteen. Ninety six Brian hit the campaign trail heart. He again gave a daunting six hundred speeches in twenty four states. He repeated his eighteen ninety six support for the free coinage of silver. He also railed against monopolies and trusts but the issue. Brian hit McKinley hardest on was imperialism. Brian preached that possessing lands and people without their consent betrayed the very idea of America. He called for a return to America's tradition of isolationism and. Brian was an eloquent speaker. Known for persuasively winning crowd. But this time William McKinley had a secret weapon his running mate who knew how to dangle. A carrot and hit with a big stick in the election of nineteen hundred feet or Roosevelt launched a stumping tour that rivaled. Brian's the tenacious Roosevelt made four hundred eighty stops in twenty three states. He painted Brian. As a feckless coward. Juxtaposing zone heroism with Brian's apologetic foreign policy when Brian attacked McKinley for denying the Filipinos freedom. Roosevelt's Slam Brian Hypocrisy. How could a man cry for freedom in the Philippines while turning a blind eye to violent suppression of blacks in the South on the economy? Mckinley and Roosevelt successfully dismantled. Each of the Democratic Party's planks the tariff debate which dominate much of the previous election became a non issue. Us exports now exceeded imports McKinley. Now campaigned making reciprocal trade agreements. Brian's pushed for silver which garnered support in eighteen ninety six now fell flat in eighteen. Ninety nine Congress had officially passed the Gold Standard Act and all but ended the debate over silver. Mckinley promised for years. More of the full. Dinner Pail a callback to his last election. Promise he had made America Prosper again and pledged to continue that prosperity for majority of Americans. Brian's bite no longer had any teeth in the end. It was America's booming economy in bold expansion that made voters favor McKinley. Military Victories had bolstered national pride and extended national borders. Brian try to cast the ongoing conflict in the Philippines as an unwinnable boondoggle but McKinley town of troop reductions and pledged an end to the fighting within sixty days and on the home shores people were working in. American innovation was on the rise in the election of nineteen hundred. Americans made their thanks known at the ballot box with fifty one point. Six percent of the popular vote and two hundred ninety two electoral votes. Mckinley won an even larger victory over Brian and in eighteen.

"By the time the ship was evacuated. The main had sunk low enough that the deck was almost level with the lifeboats as his custom. Captain Sixty was the last to leave as they rowed ashore. The captain surveyed the bodies of his men floating in the water. Two hundred sixty eight men over two thirds of his crew were dead the Bugler Newton who captain sixty had listened to just a half hour before was among them. Taps was the last song he ever played on March second. Eighteen ninety seven two days before his inauguration. Republican president-elect William McKinley had been invited to the White House by outgoing Democratic President Grover Cleveland. They're Cleveland warned McKinley about the expansionist agenda of many in Congress in his inaugural address. Mckinley had declared we want no wars of conquest. We must avoid the temptation of territorial aggression. War should never be entered upon until every agency of peace has failed but the sinking of the main would force a reluctant McKinley to wage. Exactly what? He cautioned against a war of conquest while. Mckinley hoped to avoid war. Many Americans have been chomping at the bit for conflict. European countries like England and France were aggressively expanding their empires in Africa and Asia the Dominant Naval Power in the Americas the Spanish empire had been on the decline smelling blood in the water American speculators salivating at the prospect of Spain abandoning its imperial conquests. Trade routes mineral deposits and fertile land. Were all up for grabs. If Spain retreated from the region many speculators had set their sights on the neighboring island of Cuba. The fertile island was perfect. For growing fruit sugarcane tobacco many had hoped that a Cuban revolution would free the country from the Spanish Empire but the revolution had not been going well. The Cubans had demanded independence. Spain aggressively countered the rebellion the Spanish crown launched a scorched earth campaign burning homes and crops and rounding up the freedom fighters in concentration camps. This inhumane treatment of the rebels allowed American speculators to voice moral rage an advocate for war. Then the pro war element of the American press gave voice to that outrage and the expansionists and Congress began to beat the drums of war yet. Outgoing president Cleveland and incoming President Mckinley and both been unwilling to get blood on their hands during the campaign of eighteen. Ninety six Theodore Roosevelt had set of McKinley. He is not a strong man. I should feel rather uneasy about him in a serious crisis. Do Hope he will take a strong stand about Cuba. Mckinley had not wished to start a war with Spain. He himself had seen more. Mckinley was the last veteran of the civil war to serve as president he had written to a friend. I've been through one more. I've seen the dead piled up. I do not WanNa see another. But despite mckinlay's wishes American tragedy dropped war directly in his lap on February Fifteenth. Eighteen ninety eight when the USS main exploded off the coast of Cuba. Two thirds of the three hundred fifty man crew were killed. An immediate investigation to the main explosion was launched by the US naval board of inquiry. They concluded that the cause of the explosion was a mind place beneath the ship. The result of the inquiry was playing. It was an act of war seventy five years later that inquiry would-be challenged in modern investigation. Determine that the blast most likely came from within the ship they would come to the conclusion that the cause of the main explosion was probably not a mind but simply an accident a spontaneous ignition of coal store next to the Reserve magazine but in Eighteen Ninety eight without modern investigative tools. The mind theory was widely embraced and in the heat of the moment. The mere accusation of a cowardly dastardly attacked by Spain. Calls public outrage. This outrage gave wore advocates justice. Excuse they crave for action. The sensationalist newspapers a William Randolph hearst and Joseph Pulitzer cried out retaliation known for their yellow journalism. These papers exaggerated story played on public fear. Headlines proclaimed Spanish treasury they claim destruction of the worship main was the work of an enemy William Harris even offered a reward. His New York Journal Fifty Thousand Dollars for information leading to the perpetrator of the main outrage. The press convinced Americans that the Spanish were responsible and sway public opinion towards war. Everyone rallied around the call. Remember the main to hell with Spain. Congress also clamored for retribution. Many wanted a declaration of war. The pressure on President McKinley was immense and yet. Mckinley resisted a close friend. Later told the story that in private the situation McKinley weep like a thirteen year. Old Boy. Mckinley told his friend. I have not slept over three hours a night for over two weeks. Congress is trying to drive us into war with Spain. The Spanish fleet is in Cuban waters. And we haven't enough ammunition on the Atlantic seacoast to fire salute before pro-war expansionist the sinking of the main had given them all the ammunition they needed. There is a popular joke. A President Mckinley at the time. Why is the president's mind like his bed because someone has to make it up for him before he can use it? The men of President Mckinley Cabinet certainly knew this to be true. They joined Congress in the call for war. And when McKinley resisted some took action to sway his opinion Kinley Secretary of war Russell Alder secretly approached the powerful Senator from Massachusetts Henry Cabot Lodge. Lodge was a vocal advocate for American imperialism. Secretary of War Alger begged the senator to pressure the president to declare war for Alger. The reasoning was purely political. The majority of public opinion was behind the war if the Republicans wanted to remain the dominant party. They must embrace the popular opinion secretary alter worn McKinley that if he did not declare war he was in danger of ruining himself and the Republican Party. By standing in the way of the People's wishes the cacophony of voices calling for war was deafening and finally the president gave in on April eleventh eighteen. Ninety Eight McKinley. Ask Congress for a declaration of war with Spain primary reason. He cited in helping Cuba. Was It's close. Proximity to the country keenly said it is especially our duty. Ford is right at our door. He publicly accepted the theory that the main had been sunk by a Spanish mine. He chastised the Spanish government for their failure as he put it to assure safety. And security to a vessel of the American navy in the harbor of Vana on a mission of peace on April Twenty first eighteen ninety eight the Republican controlled. Congress held vote on the declaration of war with Spain. The Senate voted forty two thirty five for the measure. The House overwhelmingly voted for war. Three hundred ten to six critics of the declaration claimed the war was solely conquest to answer these accusations. Congress also passed the teller amendment which limited the conflict to solely aiding Cuba and it's rebellion prohibited Cuba's annexation and once the conflict was over the. Us would leave. Congress also voted to give McKinley fifty million dollars to strengthen the US military volunteers enthusiastically lined up to enlist in June. Seventeen thousand troops landed in Cuba meeting little resistance the conflict with Spain which became known as the Splendid Little War would redefine. Us foreign policy would also create new battle lines which define the election fight of nineteen.

"On June sixteenth. Eighteen Ninety six the Republican National Convention was held in Saint Louis Missouri. The wealthy industrialist Marcus. Hanna served as chairman of the Republican National Committee under his command. The Republican Party was a powerful political machine with a well-developed platform. Republicans were largely pro expansion calling for the acquisition of Hawaii. They also supported a revolution in Cuba. That would rest the island away from Spain in order to take it for the US. Nativist and the party push the ban of all illiterate immigrants the key planks however were high tariffs and the gold standard united behind these central policies.

A political moderate hallmark might also placate any silver right Republicans who weren't enthused by McKinley. Sitting at the top of the ticket. Republicans called McKinley. The advance agent of prosperity the only candidate capable of saving the stalled economy and reversing the trend of rampant unemployment with the nomination in their pocket and the Party. United Behind McKinley. Hobart ticket Hanna and McKinley went to work. Meanwhile Democrats were not nearly as unified. The party was split over issues of gold and silver the role of the federal government. And how to move past the economic crisis where one plank in the democratic platform was not up for debate it read. We are opposed to the issuing of interest bearing bonds and condemn the trafficking with banking syndicates. President CLEVELAND'S DEAL WITH J. P. Morgan might have saved the economy but it cost him the nomination. Cleveland was out at the Democratic convention in the summer of Eighteen. Ninety six a little known Nebraska politician would use that occasion in his gift of words to sees his party's nomination and changed the face of the eighteen ninety six contests it's July ninth. Eighteen ninety six inside the Chicago Coliseum and the Democratic Party is at war with itself. The economic crisis has caused a tectonic shift in the political landscape. A faultline has split the party into Bourbon. Democrats with the northeast largely represent big business and the gold standard silver rights of the south and West largely represent farmers and labourers one by one men jockeying to be the next Democratic presidential nominee. Take to the podium by settling the debate over the standard. They helped the solve the debate over. Who will be the nominee? I is an avid white. Supremacist Congressman Benjamin Tillman of South Carolina when this convention disperses. I hope my fellow citizens will have a different opinion of the man with pitchfork from South Carolina. Tillman once called. Grover CLEVELAND. A bag of beef. He threatened to provide the president with pitch for lending him. The nickname pitchfork. Ben I am from South Carolina. Which was the homeless secession. Oh his if you like their only three things on earth which can his goose a serpent. A man with no knowledge whatsoever of South Carolina's Grand History. South Carolina demands the emancipation of the white slaves. Silvery Tillman likens the gold standard to slavery for the poor farmer though the crown mostly agrees with him on silver grown tired of Tillman's abrasive tirades and civil war references. Another speaker takes the podium. It's Bourbon Democrat Senator Hill of New York. I'm a Democrat. I'm not a revolutionist. My mission here. Today is to unite not divide. I therefore start out with this proposition that the Democratic Party stands in favour neither of silver standard nor of a gold standard. We should not attempt the experiment of the free and unlimited coinage of silver with the cooperation of other great nations hills. Lack of support for silver proofs is undoing many other. Democrats from the northeast degree with him. They are in the minority the majority of the crowd our civil rights and make their supportive. Silver no just then a freshman congressman from Nebraska takes to the podium. His name is William Jennings Bryan. The homeless citizen in all the land when clad in the armor of a righteous cause is stronger than all the hosts of air. I come to speak to you in defense. For 'cause as holy as the cause of liberty the cause of humanity William Jennings Bryan is only thirty six yet. He's already found his way onto the coveted ways and means committee there. He's proven himself a powerful order and he's used his gift to push for a very popular issue. Silver there are two ideas of government. There are those who believe that. If you will only legislate to make the well to do prosperous. Their prosperity will lead through to those below. The Democratic idea however has been that if you legislate to make the masses prosperous their prosperity will find way up through every class which rest upon them if Republicans dare to come out in the open field and defend the gold standard as a good thing we will fight them to the uppermost having behind the producing masses of this nation and the world supported by the commercial interest. The Laboring Interest Tyler's everywhere. We will answer their demand for gold standard by saying to them. You shall not press down upon the brow of Labor this crown of Thorns. You shall not crucify mankind upon a cross of gold..

"It's February fourth. Eighteen ninety five in a man has just arrived in Washington with a big idea. The economic situation across the country's dire over the past few months gold reserves have continued to plummet. This man has an idea to save the economy. These come to Washington. Dc to share it with the president. The man is escorted to the White House after the executive residence as he waits alone. The man takes a cigar from his pocket. Rolls it in his fingers. It will take one of the most powerful men in the country to fix the gold reserve crisis that is precisely why J. P. Morgan. The famous banker has come to Washington. Mr President Mr Morgan. I'm sure you know. Attorney General. Only Treasury Secretary Carlisle Gentlemen. Please speed what brings you to Washington? Mr Morgan gold in the Treasury's reserve president. Cleveland knows the reserve is running low. Whatever favored J. P. Morgan is asking for? He is not in a position to help while sir. If you wish to take any gold from the Treasury GONNA know Mr President. I wished to put gold in well. If you wish to buy some public bonds we will soon be issuing oeser. We do not have the time. The issue has already been decided. Mr Morgan the real issue. Mr President is that there is an investor in New York with a draft for ten million dollars in gold. I'm sure we can handle that amount. No Mr President. The Treasury only has nine million when that ten million draft is presented. You won't be able to meet it. The United States will be insolvent before the end of the day. The president knew the situation was bad but hearing the word insolvent drains the color from his face. When you suggest for Morgan we must act quickly. Sir I suggest a private sale of American bonds I will lead a syndicate of investors. Who will pay for the bonds in gold? That's no good. Mr Morgan. Congress will never allow a private sale. Mr President back in the civil war when I was in a mining village trading gold. I stopped at a saloon to play a game of Solitaire. There I heard tell of a statute that gave President Lincoln the authority to do exactly what I'm suggesting. This is news to Cleveland's ears even his attorney. General Richard Only unaware of the law only quickly stance and Fascism the book of revised statutes he flips through the pages and stares into belief only hands the book to Treasury Secretary Carlisle. He reads section thirty seven hundred allowed. The Secretary of the Treasury may purchase coin with any of the bonds or notes. The United States pond such terms as he may deem most advantageous to the public interest. This seems to suffice memorial. How much are you suggesting? One hundred million ought to do it. We'll put that much back into the Treasury in exchange for bonds. The president is apprehensive. Mr Morgan is there enough gold left on American shores to accomplish such a venture. My Syndicate will secure half of what's needed from abroad. And what have we that if we adopt this plan? The gold you deposit will not continue to be shipped abroad as it has been fired. Can you guarantee that this will not happen? Morgan raises an eyebrow with this request. President Cleveland is fundamentally asking Morgan to control the international gold markets during the life of the contract. It's a tall order but if anyone can do it. It's J. P. Morgan yes. Mr President until the contract has been concluded and the goal has been reached. You have my word. Cleveland offers. His hand Morgan takes it and with a single handshake. Economy.

American Railway Union President Eugene debs called the struggle with the pullman company a contest between the producing classes and the money power of the country but when the pullman strike began in the summer of eighteen ninety four President Cleveland did not come to the defense of Labor. He tried his best to stay out of IT TO CLEVELAND. The role of government was to act as an arbitrator. A neutral third party that settled disputes but didn't pick sides but the PULLMAN strike was getting wildly out of hand. It was the first ever national strike with all realize west of at a standstill president. Cleveland's Attorney General Richard. Only DESPISE STRIKES. In his opinion they were no different than insurgencies but for only the pullman strike which he called debs rebellion was also personal only had been the director of several railroads and he knew the industry. Well HE PRESSURED President Cleveland to act immediately to prevent the spread of lawlessness saying if the rights of the United States were vigorously asserted in Chicago. The origin of the demonstration. The result would be to make it a failure everywhere else and to prevent its spread over the entire country for only there was only one way to stamp out. Deb'S REBELLION BY But Cleveland was not willing to get involved so only hatched a plan. He claimed the strike had disrupted the US Postal Service making it. A federal issue only suggested that if the courts ruled the strike illegal it would put pressure on deb's to end it. The president in the meantime would be kept clean of the whole affair though. Aru's president Eugene. Debs denied only as assertion only strategy worked on President Cleveland. And though he didn't know it going along with his plan. Cleveland had sat himself on a collision course. With the American Rail Union and has Democratic Party Attorney General only won an injunction from the courts against the pullman boycott but Eugene debs ignored the injunction and continued the strike when small incidents of violence began breaking out. Only use the unrest as a pretext act. He cited a civil war statute intended for times of war which empowered the government to protect against domestic violence. Only use this obscure law the mail stoppage and DEB's defiance of the court order as fodder to press Cleveland to take executive action. The president finally agreed to end the boycott by using force. Cleveland SENT SIX THOUSAND TROOPS TO CHICAGO. Long with an army of deputies to make arrests saying if it takes the army and navy of the United States to deliver a postcard in Chicago. That card will be delivered. But dads warned of the tenuous nature of the situation telling a reporter. The first shots fired by the regular soldiers at the mob. Here will be the signal for a civil war. Bloodshed will follow and ninety percent of the people in the United States will be arrayed against the other ten percent and I would not care to be arrayed against the laboring people in the contest. Dams prediction came true at least in part on the evening of July fifth eighteen ninety four. The strike turned into a riot the presence of federal troops and cited a few groups of strikers to overturn and set fire to rail cars the next morning. United States. Deputy fired into a crowd of strikers killing innocent on our man from there. The simmering violence boiled over more fires. Were started the Chicago. Rail yards went up in flames. Ultimately federal troops led bannet charge against civilians though estimates vary somewhere between twelve and thirty were killed after the smoke cleared a are you. President Eugene. Debs was arrested. He would serve six months in prison. Only to emerge with even more radical views. He would continue the fight for Labor but not as head of the American Railway Union instead as a presidential candidate for the Socialist Party of America when Cleveland Repeal the Sherman Silver Act. Many Democrats had felt betrayed when he use federal force against the pullman boycott he irrevocably damaged his credibility with his base in the winter midterms of eighteen ninety four. Cleveland's decisions cost him. Severely many disaffected Democrats stayed away from the polls and the others cast their votes for third party which had already made gains the eighteen ninety two election. The People's Party also known as the populist party primarily a party of farmers and laborers the far left platform of the People's Party was critical of big business. Pro Silver Call for government. Ownership of the railroads became the perfect home for Democrats angry with President Cleveland. As a result the eighteen ninety two midterm elections were the biggest political swing. In the nation's history. Cleveland had begun his second term with his fellow. Democrats in control of both houses but in the midterms Democrats lost over one hundred seats in the house and four seats in the Senate. Twenty four states failed to elect a single Democrat with another six electing only one each this embarrassing loss seated complete control of Congress to Republicans making it the first midterm in history that a president's Party boss both houses. What in the wake of this political bloodbath grover. Cleveland would not do himself any favors. His subsequent actions would further Alienate Party. Cost him the Democratic nomination and set the stage for the Republicans.

But that's only a fraction of Alino story arlene the first American and all woman ascent of an opponent. One considered one of the world's most dangerous and difficult mountains. She Co lead the first women's team to climb. Denali completed the Great Himalayan traverse across the mountain ranges of Bhutan the Pollen India and height the length of the European Alps with her baby daughter on her back. She's the author of Ana Pana a woman's place which was named one of the top one hundred best adventure books of all time by National Geographic.

She was chosen by the Guardian as one of the world's one hundred most inspiring women. Dr Bloom is a fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science. And if that wasn't enough Eileen was elected to the whole of mountaineering. Excellent Hey uh keep me from getting. You remember the day where we're sitting right now. I mean we're sitting in Tilden Park on. Trail called seaview with a wonderful view of the bay. While flowers greenhills Gorgeous California. And why so many people on the trail today? Well it turns out that everyone has been ordered to stay home or go outdoors and everything's closed so there are a lot more people outdoors than usual. Which is a good thing and you walk every single day. Tell us about that routine and and how you got into it. Well I do pretty intense work and I work really hard because I have so many opportunities and I've discovered that if every day I take a walk with friends or colleagues or sometimes even the chemical industry executives with whom I do not see eye to eye. It's extremely good for my physical health. My mental health and my work. You have an incredible history of climbing of mountaineering. Have you always had a passion for climbing and mountaineering? How did that start? I was raised by incredibly cautious and conservative Orthodox Jewish grandparents in Chicago and was not allowed to do anything and I push push push to just be able to take swimming lessons and so I guess I started early with coming up with things I really wanted to do and then pushing to be able to do them. When I was a Grad student at Berkeley I heard about an expedition to Denali Mount McKinley. The Highest Mountain in North America. And I'd been climbing a lot with my friends from Reed College and had climbed higher than Denali in Peru and apply gone the trap and was told that women could go as far as base camp to help with the cooking. And when I called to say well I've climbed higher than Denali. They said. Yeah you were the only woman. You probably didn't do your share you know. Women really can't time high mountains. I wonder if a team of all women could climb high mountains and I found five other women and we went and kind to Nali ourselves. All women were the first all women's team and indeed not only. Did we climb it? But our leader had altitude sickness and became unconscious just below the summit and at that point. I was twenty five. I was the deputy leader because I'd organized and suddenly I was in charge of our Denali expedition with an unconscious person at twenty thousand feet and a big Arctic storm. Coming in and We actually made a stretcher dragged her down the mountain and it was really empowering to me. I mean I'd had a lot of negative messages in my childhood about what I couldn't couldn't do and I thought wow we got grace down from Denali Alive. We can do anything. We dream up so that was really inspiring for me to realize sick. We can all do things and we believe possible when we have to then. You just kept going though. That wasn't the end of your mountaineering. No I love being in the mountains. I love being outdoors. I love being here. I seem to like challenge. I was on a nineteen. Seventy six expedition climbed Everest. We were the second American expedition in those days. Hard to believe we have the whole mountain to ourselves and I climbed to nearly twenty five thousand feet and on the way back. I thought at that point all the world's highest mountains over eight thousand meters. That's kind of a magic height They all had been cleaned by men but no woman had ever climbed eight thousand meters and people were saying maybe women couldn't and I thought well we climbed. Denali got twenty four Everest. Let's give him a chance. So on my way back from I I applied for a permit for Anna Purna one and it was the first eight thousand meter peak ever climbed. It has the highest fatality rate. And it's now considered the hardest climb and we did not know that and so In nineteen seventy eight. I did organize an an all women's expedition and we were successful. We were the first women and indeed the first Americans to climb out of that reinforced my belief that we can all do seemingly impossible things and I'd say now is a good time for all of us to be doing seemingly impossible things because it's it's tough right now. Your experience shows me and the tough things that I've done in my life is that you can move past them that they're not insurmountable and even if they are to continue moving forward with with those challenges. I've never been above eight thousand meters. What what is it like? I mean the physicality of losing that oxygen. Do you get addicted to that. It feels like a very rarefied club of people that understand and know something that the rest of us don't well first of all it's the most beautiful place ever being above timberline with clouds on your feet the extreme beauty and peace and so it is so beautiful. But you know being here until the park is so beautiful to you. Don't have to be on top of Anna Perna and there's a huge amount of focus. You have a goal and you get a great team and everybody shares ICAL. But I'm always kind of looking for family and a climbing expedition is like a family but perhaps better family dynamics and some families have so you have a family of people all focused on a goal. And you're in a beautiful place using every bit of your physical energy but your mental energy problem solving. So it's it's super focused. Every since I became a mom didn't want to risk my life because if you know this but the chances of dying about one in ten climbing those mountains so it seriously dangerous so for me as a mom. I don't want to risk my life on the other hand what I'm doing now which is reducing harmful chemicals that are in our bodies and our products and our planet so it's got a very similar similar feeling of of getting a great team family of people who share a common goal and then persevering through avalanches and storms and Yetis. And what have you

How Do We Fall Asleep?
"On this podcast. You take questions from kids just like you all over the world and we find answers. We've heard from a lot of you who listen to podcast when you're winding down and getting ready for bed so it makes sense that a lot of you are inspired to send. Us questions about sleep. Flooded people toss and turn on the Risley when new getting into the deep sleep. You'll Buri somehow wakes you up but kicking and it feels like you're really hot. Why's that I don't want to get out of bed in the morning? And when it is nighttime I don't want to go. She read in this episode. We are answering your questions about sleep. Did you know there are doctors who focus specifically on helping kids sleep better? We found one of them at national Jewish health. That's a hospital in Colorado. My Name is Dr Lisa. Meltzer and I am a pediatric sleep psychologist. Which means I work with kids to help them sleep better. Do you feel like you sleep. Pretty well do you think. Oh Yea when the adults in your life tell you it's bedtime or do you struggle to get ready for bed and maybe even struggled to go to sleep or to stay asleep. Dr Meltzer says there are a few things that all of us can do to help us on the path to good sleep. Kids have a very consistent bedtime. Wake time so that means you go to bed about the same time every night. Wake up about the same time every morning. We recommend things like not having any screens in your bedroom. Having a bedroom. That's nice and cool and dark and a place that you like to sleep things like that that are very consistent. What we call sleep health. Let's jump right into some of our questions because we have a lot of kids who have sent us questions about sleep or we're going to start with the basics. Hi My name is and I live in South Orange New Jersey. I'm Steffan and my question is why do people need to sleep? Thank you I love your show similarly from Jordan in Vermont. Why do we really need to go to? Here's one from Maria and five years old and I come from Ottawa Ontario. And my question is why people need to sleep and we also got this from five year old aiden in McKinley Bill California. Why do have to sweep? 'cause I don't will you get and by the White Cornyn Swe We book. That sounds like a lovely way to fall asleep. Aiden so Dr Meltzer. Why do we need to sleep? These are great questions that scientists are spending a lot of time trying to better understand and we don't have one particular answer but we have a lot of different reasons that people think are important for why we sleep. The first one goes back to how humans have developed so there was a time when humans didn't live in houses but lived out in caves. Lived out in the wild and at night when they sleep they were inactive and that made them vulnerable so that predators. The big animals might come and attack them during the night. So you sleep to stay away from those animals that might come and harm in the middle of the night. In other words people were possibly safer tucked up in a cave or shelter sleeping through the night instead of being out and about in the dark when there were big animals with better eyesight also roaming around but being asleep doesn't mean your body shuts down completely. You can still be somewhat alert to danger when you're sleeping you do notice a little bit of the world around you. You can hear certain sounds and things like that and it same thing back in those times where you would want enough of a consciousness enough of awareness of what's going on around you to protect you from those Predator so we call that the evolution of why we sleep so another theory why we sleep is to conserve our energy. I mean we use a lot of energy during the day when you're running and you're playing when you sleep. These things changed the number of calories that you need reduce your temperature drops down your body is basically given a time to rest and relax. So that conserves your energy while you're sleeping and along those lines that allows your body to restore itself so again you're working your muscles all these types of things when you're awake and when you rest it allows them to heal sort of like when you get a cold at night it allows your immune system to fight off those bad germs to help you get better again really interesting one of the first things that happens when you fall asleep is growth hormone is released in growth hormone helps you grow so you literally grow in. Your sleep. So that's another reason. Why Sleep is important. I knew it. I knew I felt taller when I wake up in the morning. Okay maybe it doesn't work that way for adults but that's pretty cool isn't it? You grow while you're sleeping kind of make sleeps on more appealing more like something you might. WanNa do doesn't it? But it's not just your body that gets to rest and recover and rebuild from a busy day of running around. Your brain also need sleep to stay at peak performance. We know that children's brains develop in different ways as they get older so in very young children. The areas around language envision are the parts that are the most active during sleep. Because that's the part of you that's developing during the day and when you're in school aged the parts of your brain that start learning all the different things like math and reading those parts of your brain start to develop when you become a teenager the front part of your brain that helps you with decision making and keeping your mood. Nice calm. That's the part of your brain. That's most active during sleep. So your brain is also developing during sleep. Here's something else you might like to know. Sleep helps you remember what you've learned you take in information while you're awake but it sets in your brain while you're sleeping so if you're studying for say vocabulary test you. WanNa go to sleep after you've because it will help your brain remember. Those words in the morning same goes for all kinds of memories and other things. You might want to be able to repeat like that joke. Your friend told you that you can't wait to tell someone else. Hello My name is Shaun. I live in San Diego. My question is what is sleeping. Get rid of toxins in your brain. Why does sleeping get rid of toxins in the brain? It's a great question so again during the day. Our brain is really busy with everything that we have to do to help us get through the day but when we're sleeping our brain is less busy with all those activities so it has time basically to clean itself out and the toxins build up as we're active and doing all the things that we're doing so sleep gives a time for the brain to relax and sort of take care of itself. I like picturing little cleaners with brooms and stuff inside my brain going in and sweeping and scraping things off. That don't need to be there. That's perfect I mean. It really is a time. It's kind of like when you leave school overnight. They come in and they clean all the rooms and they get ready for the next day. It's the same kind of thing going on in your brain. We have some questions for you. Dr Meltzer about movement and Hello. My name is emily now from Brisbane Australia. Seven and my question is when you sleep. He'll but we're new getting into the deepest sleep your body somehow wakes you up but kicking in feels like you jump really hot what I want to know. So this is something called a hip nick jerk or asleep twitch hip nick jerk sleep twitch. I love that name. Do you ever have a hip. Nick Jerk happen to you. You're just falling asleep and then you feel like you're falling and your body twitches and it wakes you up if you watch babies. They do this all the time when they're falling asleep as you get older you tend to do it a little bit less and there's again multiple reasons why people think this happens. One of the reasons is that as you're falling asleep all of your muscles start to relax and your brain may think oh those muscles relaxing. They must be falling. And it kicks you awake and that causes you to jerk or jump high into the air. It could make maybe even scare you that feeling of

"mckinley" Discussed on First Class Fatherhood
"So we did that right off the bat, and he was four years old. But this is a kid that had a Davey cricket. It's made by the Henry rifle corporation, and the Henry family is actually my father's mother her maiden name is Henry, and we are part of the Henry gun family. So we've got the Henry gun family. And we've got the McKinley president side of the house that we've got a pretty interesting national history connection, but but I digress. So when he was six I would teach him how to assemble disassemble assemble and function check. Quite a few pistols that I had, you know, Stig's Asian ks glocks, and we worked our way up to rifles. And anytime I shot I would take him with me. And you know, I would shoot into a watermelon or shoot into a cantaloupe or and I'd say, hey, what do you think that would do to someone's head? And he's like the same thing, you know, exploded blood everywhere the whole deal. So he got an idea of what guns can do. But he also had the respect and the knowledge to to take them apart to reassemble them, clear them and make them safe because we've all heard at the par party or kids event were got some knucklehead kids together they're going through dad's closet, and they find a gun and one of the kids ends up shooting himself in the hut or suiting another kid having an accident and just tragedy. And I never wanted that to happen to my son. And so I felt if I if I taught him that responsibility, and the know how and gave him that experience he could avoid that. And so, you know, he's he's had a kid house, and he take away from a kid clear it and make it safe and hand it to an adult, and that's what I always wanted him to have even the young ages that ability, and you know, they say you got to. Childproof your guns. You got. That's great. But you better gun proof your children. And that's that's the way. I did it at the eagle disassembly reassembly shooting serving shooting cleaned clearing it making it say the whole gamut. Pretty much what I've done with him. I've given him that experience exposure, and responsibility and that. Yeah. Hey, man. You can look at a gun anytime you want just get me up. If you wanna go into the gun safe and check out a gun. I don't care if it's two thirty in the morning, just we can do it. You know, take the mystery out of it. Yeah. That's some great advice. Right air, Chris. And you mentioned that guns can help to sell t shirts and books, and they also help the sell movies. And it's kind of crazy how Hollywood is one of the biggest opponents of guns yet. They can't seem to make a single movie without bullets flying around the screen, even in the superhero movies that kids watch. So they are so against you having a gun. But then on the other side, they won't dare leave a nickel on the table by not including guns in their films. You're right, double standard, and it just they gross hypocrisy. It's amazing. I'm always one of things I harp on C moving. I see someone like smoking a cigarette in there that that bothers me too. Like, wow, you know, it's it's extol the virtue, but then they'll malign tobacco industry to. Yeah. Cigarettes in every you know, every movie so. Yeah. So I tried to get my kid experiences. I said the jump of the of the interview he's he's scuba dives. He's flown a plane numerous times he's good with pretty much any weapon you can hand to him. It's just a, you know, it really responsible kid roots and wings. That's what I say. You them roots and give them wings. Yeah. Very cool. And I see that you have a music career going on.

Chris please just a second here to hit my listeners, but a little bit about your background, and what you do. Okay. So I was in the navy for a little over ten years. The only job I ever had in the navy was a seal went from right from boot camp to buds or seal training, right? From buds. A seal team and. Fell you know, lock stock and barrel headfirst into it. I mean, it's not nothing that you can totally you just gotta jump headfirst into it. If you wanna be successful at it. So I did that for a little over ten years. And then I broke from that my wife became pregnant with my son, and I had to make a hardcore decision. Do I want to continue on these, you know, massive lengthy p- redeployment work us, and then do deployment and then come back and start the process all over again and the estranged from her and a strange from my from my son.

And before we talk about your character, u plus point out, you graduated the university of Michigan the same year this Tony award winning best musical debuted in twenty eight eleven you graduated that year. Did you ever think you'd be onstage here in Detroit seven years later? I had no idea. First of all, go blue. I'm really excited to be back. But no, I had I had no idea. It's been a nice full circle moment. I moved to New York, right? When this show is taking off the my first couple of months in the city auditioning for other shows every single day after I just think I would go, and I would try to do enter this ticket lottery at Eugene O'Neill theater on Broadway. And I never one for like fifty times. I finally saw the show, but that's. Tradition that I we still continue on the tour. So the tickets go quickly, but there's still a way to enter a lottery towards the front of the house that two hours before the performance. But having said that you have had some really nice roles. Comparatively speaking to me anyway. After graduating Cinderella 2013, the Broadway tour, the next year cats a bullets over Broadway. I mean, you would think it would take years for an actor just graduating a place like university of Michigan to get to those roles. I've had a lucky couple of years. Yeah. Something that towards the beginning of my time in New York. I I danced a lot in broadly on samba, and that's one of the reasons that I went through the university of Michigan or that. I've wanted to go there and was lucky enough to be able to that my my degree that I got it. Michigan is entirely. The reason I got in the door the the amount of Michigan grads. We're working on Broadway, performers and creatively. That network isn't isn't tirelessly wide that that success came away and I've worked hard, but it is really a family tries to take care of each other in the city now that you mentioned Andy didn't didn't a couple of the writers who did the music for LA La Land. Go to the university of Michigan. Yes. Ben pathogen and Justin Paul actually bench, and Justin they both graduated the year that I was deciding what school the go-to and the. Does then chair of the department the head of the department Brent Wagner has current students. Right to perspective students to say, hey, let me know if you have any questions about the program and just kind of extend a warm. Welcome to people who are considering Michigan and bench Pathak was one of the people who wrote to me my finger your high school. Wow. All right. So back to the book of Mormon it's earned over what five hundred million dollars since it opened and a total of nine Tony awards. The script the lyrics. The music written by the co creators of the animated TV series south park. What what are you figure has made it so popular over the years? It has been a huge hit. You're right. I think that. I've been asked this question a lot, and I've had to think about why. Yeah. Why has this been the success that it has been? I think that it is unbelievably funny. Unlike really any other musical. It is very much in the same vein as self park in that the comedy is not afraid to go way farther in way, cruder than you expected it to and somehow at the end of every south park episode and definitely at the end of our show. There's a big nugget of truth and a heart about the human condition. And I think that you laugh your butts off for two and a half hours, and you leave the theater considering your life and considering faith in humanity and religion, and definitely we poke fun at some parts of the Mormon faith. But the show is almost more about friendship and the need for Fe. I think that it is the combination of how much you laugh, and how much you end up reflecting about your own life while still escaping from some of the specifics of your life. It is the perfect two and a half hours really is. And I mentioned that das-. You're one of the stars. Andy Huntington Jones. It revolves around these two Mormon missionaries, price and Cunningham. Tell us about your your character elder McKinley. And what you do to help them with what they are doing that little that leads up to the first song that you sing turn it off. Yeah. So elder McKinley the character I play he is the head of these young Mormon missionaries in Uganda. And it's a huge plot point that they gotta you're gone, and it's not our respective community. Too. White Mormon trying to convert all of these African to religion, they're totally out of their element. They're not having a great success rate and elder McKinley. Tries to help these two new missionaries price and Cunningham deal with this disappointment with a smile and an overdose of positivity. And then we go into the song turn it off. If my favorite part of the show, turn it.
