Danielle D'Souza Gill Joins Her Dad to Talk About Abortion

"A big development in Kansas, which some people who have focused solely on the election primaries have not emphasized. But there was a referendum in Kansas, the point of the referendum was to modify a provision in the Kansas state constitution that would return the abortion issue to the legislature. And this was up before the people of Kansas and they voted the amendment down, which is to say they voted to keep the constitution as it is, and you might say, protect abortion rights, abortion rights, so called in Kansas. Now, Kansas is a moderately conservative state, and so the left is celebrating this. Wow, the abortion issue has so much political traction for us. It's going to help us to promote our promote Democrats in the midterms. So I kind of wanted to get your take on what's happened in Kansas and what is this a message to the pro life movement to gear up? It is because the left is going to stoop to any level to do any kind of disinformation campaign to really scare people into thinking that things are much worse than they are in reality, Kansas is a conservative state. There are solidly pro life state. And even in Kansas, there are only actually have in the whole state a couple abortion clinics. And of course, that is a couple too many clinics, but in reality that this state they're saying is becoming this Mecca of abortion now. People around another states can come to Kansas for abortion, but we're really talking about really just very few people who I think are these very radical pro abortion advocates. And they were the ones who turned up who really got other people to show up by, I think, scaring them. And they're thinking that perhaps the laws were different than they were. And I think the pro life side probably thought, oh, you know, roe V wade's overturned. So we're good to go now and we can just rely on the states to be conservative and pro life that they will pass the laws we want, but the other side really showed up and unfortunately our side didn't.

Who's Winning in the GOP? Devin Nunes Weighs In

"What is the correlation of forces? What is the balance of power between the old establishment, the old Republican rhino establishment that looked at president Trump as an anomaly, something that they can get beyond and get back to work, you know, with doing FTSE under the table with the Democrats. What is the relationship between the old establishment that doesn't care for maga? And the new maga America first center of gravity. Who's winning? Is it too early to say and what needs to happen next? Well, I think we're now ultra Mecca, right? Yes. Ultra magnet now. You're like the leader of ultra magnetic. We have it's the most popular item on our website, guys. As soon as they came up after 6 months of focus groups and million spent allegedly the old man in The White House came up with it, we said, okay, that's great. The ultra maga T-shirt with president Trump. So we understand that this is going to backfire just as badly as deplorables did. That wasn't an insult. That was wholeheartedly embraced by the movement. So yes, they don't get it. They don't understand the narrative of why we believe in America. But when it comes to our side of the aisle, what's the power play? Who's winning? Well, look, I don't think there's really nobody wins when we fight amongst ourselves. And if you look at it really, there's very few people that are out there that are against the so called maga maga movement or ultra maga. Or basically just kind of getting back to kind of normal conservative values. And I think you've seen a lot of those folks that were that way. They're retired or they're going to they're not going to win. They're going to lose. They're

Where did you grow up and how did you come to be the writer of many books? Well, I'm a night of Tennessee, and I grew up in the mountains. I'm a hillbilly. I tell people I grew up. Where God made the sunshine and we made the moonshine. And I was married. Out of college and my wife and I began pastoring in the mountains, Katrina and I, and then we moved to Nashville. And so I was a pastor there. For over 40 years. And I would write out manuscript my sermons and eventually they began, you know, Nashville is a Mecca for publishing companies. And so eventually they turned into books and my wife went to heaven a couple of years ago, but I just keep on writing, but now my ministry is primarily writing and speaking, I'm still connected with my church in Nashville. But as a caregiver, I had to step away from full-time pastoring. And she had my wife Katrina had multiple sclerosis. But that's the way that we got into it. I didn't really intend to be a writer, but preparing sermon sort of pave the way

Mecca the ca- the content creator guru on the podcast here with us today rice ball rate. I'd love it's welcomed is stranded on. Can't you gotta show up at the right time. Just bashing wish or does not backing twitch. We're analyzing numbers and yes failures of business and understanding what is happening exactly and it's important. It's not it's not a we want them to do better because if they don't we're all in trouble because we all love this platform just like you just came rated me from another twitch channel over to my channel like how do we get this better and so the thing. That sucks for me meccas. Like i'm not gilded. Flawless are very important to everyone. Slave ragnar solo in classic apparently waist now hydrogen. You slayed ragnar us.

Go there and then come back but like you'll come back but like you know to their quick. It's it's weird to me though when it comes to twitch comes to youtube but obviously people were jumping to all these different platforms for meets which i've made the most friends i've made in my deeming career. I've been gamers since. I was like twenty five years old. I'm thirty two. I think gain forever. And this is the most fun of ever had. And i don't i envy people who just do really well on twitch and only do well on twitch. I wanted that so badly. I just want to. I want to turn the camera on connection or do you want the community edge. You want people just to hang out with you. What is your motivation there. Because it sounds like there's some threads that should be pulled on because i wanted to live streaming content and in my mind the most successful way to rise very very very quickly facebook gaming But that doesn't mean. Those views are authentic. The role doesn't count as the scroll council byu but you know on what you are having consistent present viewers. Exactly it's not about. The numbers uh viewers. That are here. It's abundant community. That were built here. I everybody has a community on their. And i'm not saying that i'm saying this the network like last night i was playing crazy. Shot crazy. Thank you for for vita me to come play. We played last night and it was super fun. But i wouldn't have had that connection without twitch i wouldn't have been eight bone. I would be able to meet you like it's the actual general like i support your stream because i actually like your content so i will be there. You know and people who come to my stream to the same thing and that's that's not anywhere else. They even talked about the other day. I know i probably have twenty consecutive viewers consistently there. Because those are my people. Those are the friends that i've made over the past two years. Those the people. I know that will be there. No question throughout the stream. If it's four hours i'll probably get another ten of my other friends..

"Yes this lady. I in general. Yes yes so. I switched to because i'm kind of in it for the long like the youtube game is a very slow burn your climbing a mountain rate twitch you can get instant success very very rarely but you can if you get the right rate if you know the right people. All it's all about nepotism networking which is absolutely the two platforms. It's almost like a double edged sword to compare the two platforms because they are not one and the same. They're completely different things. They're completely different monsters but for myself and my lifestyle. The youtube game is is better for me. i see this satistics. I read a lot of data and one of the notes i made. So do you remember when she member when the ipod came out. This is two thousand twelve ten right. Bean after me. Master was made by the ipod. What a stupid idea that was. Nobody thinks it's gonna work and now it's in our all of our houses. It's in all of our workplaces. It's the thing that is super important. Right so i was sorry. I'm catching my breath. Targeted so fast. But the i've had is really really great example of a company taking something that's of weird and no one really likes it and evolving but it took about link eight years for everybody to agree that the ipad was a good idea and so the only other competitor that could challenge the youtube versus which game in my mind could be apple because of that. Exact example apple is not known for gaming products. It's not known for anything that they have the muscle of apple Right so so. I mean one is as i said one is not necessarily better than the other but it depends on what you want to do with your content like my youtube channel right now is all about. It's not it's not funny clips. It's not means it's not reaction videos which have their own market have their own opportunities for growth and making yourself not famous but monetize on youtube quickly but that's not the kind of product. I went out out products that stay with people force people to do some introspection and think about it but unfortunately the market that's on the internet isn't really a market..

Largo in april of two thousand and twenty. Well we all know how that turned out. We did not get there and again in two thousand and twenty one.

But i didn't wanna wait any longer to talk about key largo so here we go with your next dive where we travel to key largo florida. I think i've mentioned it before here on the podcast that my first is after getting a certification where with it's a dive located at the marriott hotel on the overland highway in key largo and it was fantastic. How about your first real dive being on a real historic wreck the city of washington a ship that was in havana harbor when the us main exploded and sank now. There are many reasons to choose key largo as your dive destination. Especially if you live in the eastern part of the united states first off. It's easy to get to. You can either fly into fort lauderdale. Which is my preferred airport. As i find it logistically navigate or miami which is a little closer to key Key largo you just hop in your rental car. That is if you can find one these days and head on down now. Let's talk a little bit about the dive. Operators in key largo as you can imagine being to dive. Mecca that it is. There are quite a number of operators to choose from it's a dive at the marriott is no longer operating but i will talk about two of the operators. I'm familiar with. They are horizon divers and rainbow reef now right after only a couple of months. After i did that first trip to key largo i returned and at that time. I drove with horizon divers back. Then they were located in marina at mile marker one hundred of the overseas highway and that was right next to the courtyard by marriott. Which at the time was a radison. It was very convenient to roll out of bed. Get a quick bite to eat and stroll over to the dive. Shot horizon has moved however and they are now located on the overseas highway at mile marker. One oh six. That's the dive shop in a retail store. Their boats are located about a half a mile up the road next to a place called shipwrecks oceanside now rainbow reef has taken over the old horizon diver facility at the mile marker one hundred marina additionally they also bought out ocean divers on the other side of the marina and have quite a large operation. Now the last time we were in key largo. We stayed at the courtyard and dove with horizon. We were going to go back to key. Largo in two thousand twenty and planned to die with rainbow reef. We didn't make it down there now. If you're looking to do more technical diving then. I think horizon divers maybe a better choice for the shallow reefs that i like rainbow reef might be a good option as they have those big forty six foot newton dive boats now. I have to admit that. I've never done the deeper wrecks down there like spiegel grove. Where the dwayne bid. But i love the shallow wrecks like the city of washington. The hanan bell. Also known as mike's wreck and especially the ben would. They are teeming with fish life and are great places to do fish identification and surveys. You can also experience of great dives on elbow reef molasses reef and french reef another great shallow dive through the book spurring grove. Karl is christ of the abyss. Dry rocks you can grit some great photo opportunities there. The water temperatures in key largo range from the mid seventies in the winter months to the mid eighties in the peak of the summer. When i dove in april of two thousand and nineteen. I was pretty comfortable on the shallow reefs with my three millimeter wetsuit. Only wanna do to morning dives. You can free up your afternoons for some topside adventures. A trip to reef headquarters Is interesting or you can take a tour of the coral restoration foundation and just down. The road is the history of diving museum in l. morada. I was really looking forward to getting to the museum last year and hope that i can make it down there next april. Talk about the dining. While if you're staying at the courtyard on the marina you don't have to get in your car and drive someplace you can just scroll stroll over skippers doc right on the marina. They have some great conch chowder. There and if you want a burger or some pub food than walk a little bit further down to dr sharpies shark bite grill. You'll probably run into some of the dive staff there hanging out now. Another great place to eat is the pilot house and that's located right near the coral restoration foundation very close by and and if you're in the mood for pizza then upper crust pizza at mile marker one zero one point six. Just make sure it's not. Wednesday is their closed. We made that mistake. So as i wrap up this segment. If you've been diving in key largo. I hope that you will agree that it is really a cool place to dive. And if you've never been there. I would encourage you to consider putting a trip there on your counter. I regret having taken fourteen years between visits. I'm not gonna make that mistake again.

I don't care. I blended it down to my nipples. We look like it is exactly it. Just go with it. Look at is really tricky. Good old carver times. Although i don't even think supermarkets ever had tested no it was more like priceline off. Did so there's a few options is a website called foundation dot com. It's a play on foundation and it matches your foundation shades to existing products. You already have so. You need to know your shade. And i think to existing foundations and then we'll tell you you're shading others so four also has an online diagnostics tool. I know we're talking. W and stuff like that.

"Berta. Volt from more than one. Hundred and fifty million years ago and then explosively diversified culminating in more than ten thousand species distributed worldwide. Today are human. Relationship to beds is complex to seen as spirit messengers of the gods and at the same time. We took the wild red jungle fowl. From india and selectively bred into domesticated chickens the now farmed in cages feathers have been used for thousands of years and indigenous headpieces and at the same time but has like parrots and parakeets a kept as pets bird poop called guana was used as the first fertilize of modern agriculture. And charles darwin study of galapagos finches was to the formulation of evolution. Buds are all around us. We are closer to bed than any other wild animals birds. I literally and figuratively are canaries in the coal mine. Their wellbeing is our wellbeing threats to buds range from habitat loss including logging climate change industrial farming with pesticides invasive species and even cats. These will had a devastating impact on the bird populations of the us and canada. Which in just the last fifty years have declined by. Three billion birds danton insane. Thirty percent of all birds gone. Three billion pez of wings have vanished ever across our continent from sea to shining sea. Luckily birds have strong allies in their corner. There an estimated sixty million active bird watches in the us alone and with the pandemic shutting down so much of our country. We have flocking to bird watching like never before everything from bird feeders. To binoculars have been in short supply and this year the birding app e bird collected more sightings in a single day the was admitted during the first two and a half years of the apps existence. I must admit coming late to the bird-watching pardee. But thanks to dr meredith williams. That's about to change. I'm lucky enough to work with meredith every day in her role. Running one of the most important and complex agencies in california governor. The department of toxic substance control. Dr williams received two undergraduate degree from yale and a doctorate in physics from north carolina. State university meredith then worked and silicon valley fortune. Five hundred companies in the technology consumer product and chemical sectors meredith left the private sector to follow her passion for wetlands and birds and led the san francisco estuary institute as we'll hear. Meredith journey is about so much more than her resume. Meredith nine meet apt get ready for my maiden watching invention merit so we're about to go hopefully bed watching what. What do we need to bring with us while like what. What's what's in the bird watching backpack almost nothing. Which is great binoculars. Of course are your starting point. So i hope you have some inaugurals. I know you were looking for some recently. You gave me some good advice. But i get any but we all kind of professional but what just like you would have an extra pair. Do thought so. It's in the office but we could stop on the way out of town. Not of that sound. No we should. We should yeah. You just kind of out now. Okay okay so you got the binoculars. How do you if you're starting out. It's surprising how good have gotten very affordable these days so i mean it's still a lot to invest but ask a bird watcher. They might have an extra pair. That's the first place you might wanna try like them. What do you well. first of. All there are lots of different kinds of birdwatchers in terms of some people. Want to count every burden get really long list. And they track every single birthday they see. It's about the numbers of the that very unique bird and they chase vagrant birds that fly in unusually and they're rushing off to see that bird so there those kind of bird watchers I'm a bird watcher. Just watch one bird for a long time. I liked bird behavior. just i'm just fascinated by them. And i think they're beautiful so i could just end up watching one bird for for quite a while you can just take it. In at whatever level you want in terms of the variety birds that you could see and how you would just experience them and enjoy them. So and i think the only way to find that out is to bert. Watch a little and see what grabs you What you do sounds really peaceful. The first thing that sounds the first thing sounds more. Like in england as a whole breed of people go train spotters and i always kind of identified them with bird watchers. Like it's really about. How many things. You've you've been able to capture and less about the bird the thing that you'll doing just sounds like being a peaceful will watching another animal even the people who are energized. That way unless they're doing a big day which would be a day when they map it out to see as many birds as they can. In a single day they're not necessarily rushing around even they are going to have moments of really enjoying a bird and even somebody like me chased around golden gate park looking for a rare warbler. That's very rarely in san francisco. There's an amiability amongst birdwatchers is really camaraderie. People are so nice. There's always somebody better in terms of being a better bird watcher. Meaning they either can identify birds better or you know they just have a lot of experience for the a little bit about. The ecology and people are so happy to share their information. That it's really wonderful. That's one of the things i like about it. And it tends to be every now and then you get into group and there'll be somebody who's a little loud but by and large the the folks are really kind of it's easy to get in a groove with with birdwatchers and settled and gopher along stroll and see some great birds. But what's there everywhere that it's a it's a big i mean like it huge movement and it's growing apparently it's one of the fastest growing outdoor activities. There is it's it is just kind of crazy places where i been going for ten years and cues to be just me and five or six friends maybe and now parking lot and i think the pandemic has made it even more so where a lot of people. That's how they wanna get outdoors or they've they've just kind of discovering it because they know it is one of the only ways to be outdoors so i think it's going to continue to grow which i think is great because then more people are connected to the natural world which obviously makes them care about it more. How did you get into meredith like what. What was your journey into bed watching. I mean i liked birds always in the yard growing up in ohio. You know the robbins and the blue jays. There was a hill in town. And i used to ride my bike up in the hill early in the morning and i would always see birdwatchers and i said when i'm old air quotes. I'm going to bird watch. And i kind of that seed was planted but i didn't really bird-watching until my three say in my thirties. I started volunteering for the san francisco. Bay national wildlife refuges. That you know are on the perimeter of the bay. You know them well getting restored a lot of them Back to title harsh. And i when i volunteered i would be doing everything from pulling out. Invasive plants to building shells but there are always birds around and i just became more and more and more fascinated with the birds invested in binoculars and just started creeping in. You join the audubon society and suddenly you're getting news about different outings and the next thing you know you're you're pretty far in foreign now. I'm foreign. I'm not pretty far and have taken a couple bird vacations. Which i think says that. I'm pretty far in. But what do those entail. The longest trip i took was to go to brazil to the pantanal. Which is a very large wetland like the mecca of bud watching their many mecca. It is a mecca over the course of two weeks. We just went out every morning. We get up before sunrise. Be moving by six o'clock at the latest. Usually more like five thirty and we went to a place that's called the parrot crater a giant sinkhole. And it's all a lot of parents live down in the sinkhole. And so you look down. A new parrots lying around in a simple it was tremendous and we ended up seen two hundred different species of birds there along with some giant giant eaters river otter is and it was quite a trip but the birds were spectacular.

Surstromming: The World's Smelliest Food

"There are many foods that are considered an acquired taste foods that might not be palatable the first time you try it or something that just doesn't sit right with most people. It could be something as simple as blue cheese or something like the filipino delicacy balut which is a boiled fertilized egg with the embryos still inside sweden has its own acquired tastes delicacy which has spawned hundreds of reaction videos and caused it to be banned by airlines. Learn more about sir strumming. The world smelly food on this episode of everything everywhere. Daily this episode is sponsored by audible dot com. My audiobook recommendation. Today is the almost nearly perfect people. Behind the myth of the scandinavian utopia by michael booth journalists. Michael booth has lived among the scandinavians for more than ten years and he has grown increasingly frustrated with the roast into view of this part of the world offered up by the western media in this timely audiobook. He leaves his adoptive home of denmark and embarks on a journey through all five of the nordic countries to discover who these curious tribes are the secrets of their success and most intriguing of all what they think of each other.

Why do all of them hate the swedes. you can get a free one-month trial to audible in two free audiobooks by going to audible trial dot com slash everything everywhere or by clicking on the link in the show notes the word sir strumming in swedish literally means sour fish and that is probably an understatement. More specifically sir strumming is canned fermented herring that in and of itself doesn't sound that bad. There are many fermented foods that we eat and we have no problem with them. Yogurt sauerkraut and kimchi are all fermented foods. And no-one freaks out at the idea of eating them from inflation is an ancient form of food preparation by the breakdown. Food via microorganisms like bacteria and yeast all well and good cover. There's another process of breakdown of food via micro organisms in that is called rotting serse roaming toes the line between fermentation and rotting the history of sir strumming goes back to at least the sixteenth century when we can find the first written mention of the food however the food might be very well older than that as from. It is a pretty old process. The legend of sir strumming holds that it was accidentally created by fishermen who didn't have enough salt to preserve their catch. They use less salt than normal and sold their fish to some locals and finland salt is used to inhibit microbial growth and to stop the fish from rotting. When the fishermen returned they thought the locals would be mad at them for selling them fish. That rotted instead. They love the product and wanted more of it. The fishermen tried the fish themselves and thus stroming was born today sir. Strumming is prepared. In purchasing a can while in the can the fermentation process continues fermentation results in the release of gases which means at the can will often be bulging due to high pressure inside the can the fermentation of the fish in the can result in the single most unique quality of sir strumming the smell in two thousand and two japanese study found it to be the worst smelling food in the world. The smell is so bad that it has become legendary. it's been described as rotten eggs. A dead body a dirty diaper and raw sewage but the truth is there are so few things you can really compare it to because nothing else smells quite so bad. The smell is what's made the product famous. And if it weren't for the smell it would be about as controversial as pickled herring children in sweden have been known to open a can of sir stroming school so they could get out of class. Airlines will not allow people to carry sir strumming on flights because of the high pressure in the can in the low pressure in the cabin the higher pressure differential can result in some cans rupturing spewing the smelly liquid onto the plane and. It isn't as if you can leave a plane while it's flying or open a window most famously in one thousand nine hundred one a landlord. Germany evicted attendant because they spilled a can of sir strumming in the building stairwell german laws. Make it very hard to evict people. When the eviction came to trial the landlords defense consisted of opening up a can in the courtroom. The judge have experienced the overwhelming odor ruled in favor of the landlord. If you search for sir strumming online you'll find dozens and dozens of reaction videos of people opening up the cans and trying to eat the contents. The videos mainly consists of gigging wrenching and sometimes vomiting the problem. According to the sir strumming experts is that they're eating at wrong for starters. You never want to open a canister stroming indoors for reasons which i think of established by now. Ideally you want to open the can when submerged in water that will prevent the liquid inside from spraying all over the place when it's opened alternatively you could open it while it's enclosed in a plastic bag once the liquid has been drain. You don't eat it straight from the can the herring which is put in the can. Hasn't been gutted or deboned. You need to do that. I then the traditional way of meaning it is with a swedish flat bread called tune broad along with potatoes onions and sour cream. It's usually eaten as sort of small sandwich. I've actually had the experience of trying some sir strumming and it really doesn't taste as bad as it smells ranted given that it's the worst smelling food in the world. That's a pretty low bar but it isn't bad so long as it prepared properly if you really want the full sir strumming experience. I'd have to suggest you visit the island of von in sweden's high coast. It is a center of herring fishing and it's considered. The mecca for strumming. August is considered the best season enforcers strumming. Because it's in the middle of the summer. It's also one of the best times to visit ov- on regardless the main day for eating it is the third thursday of august also known as sir strumming day. Which is the day which by royal decree you used to be able to start selling strumming. If you're there you might be able to meet ruben. Matteson who is the self proclaimed king of sir strumming. He was the person who actually served me my first serve strumming one. Is it von back in two thousand fourteen. He was involved in opening a twenty five year old. Ken of sir strumming which was found in an abandoned cabin in norway. Having been outside for a quarter century the can was quite rusted. And due to twenty five years of fermentation it was bulging a lot. The contents of the container were mostly liquid. What solid material. That did come out. Didn't really look anything.

So when when you when you download the app and you register, you are an avatar and you get to walk around Times Square go into the stores a go into live concerts at the one Times Square building you jump in the elevator and you go up, you know, the second floor of the third floor and watch these live concerts and and you get to also play games. There's three games in the virtual New Year's Eve app and then through Ultimate Gamer, you can play so you could come participate in some of our competition some more gaming competitions to win prizes from some of our partners are really cool prizes. Yeah a ton of big brands on this event as well. It's like you mentioned massive Impressions on the New Year's Eve event every single year this year looking a lot different people are still going to be really excited to ring. This year in particular but they're also going to be at home. Hopefully not partying. Please don't party under usually that should go without saying our audience is smart enough to know that out so long, uh, but it feels like something that people are going to be kind of at a loss for what to do on New Year's Eve, you know, I think about all the past ones. It's usually a party of some sort and this year I won't be home. I don't know. What I'm going to do on New Year's Eve. Are you expecting to see if even higher rate of Impressions on this night than we would see in the past because of how many people are just not wrong to have plants. Well, my first opens that people are going to you know, the app is absolutely free. So, you know, you lose Nothing by trying it out and experiences. I think everybody gamer a non-gamer will enjoy the experience and and a lot of the features at the app
