"Anywhere from three to eight years. Kind it depends. Oh if you're growing it from seed it's definitely going to be longer. And i'm getting the sense that it's like eight to twelve. Honestly if you were to plant peach from seed you would also be waiting a while. Yeah yeah. I have two more listener questions. If that's okay yeah sure michelle dempsey vishay. Shaffer and heather ninette all kind of one or no that well. Their questions are similar but different so a read michelle dempsey's michelle dempsey says. I've seen articles suggesting chocolate. Has nifty qualities like containing. Antioxidants has blood pressure lowering abilities. What sort of nifty qualities does care. Pauvres and heather wants to know if it produces endorphins. Well because it doesn't have that stimulant prosper property. No it doesn't it doesn't produce endorphins like that. It does have its strong points just as chocolate also has some points what it doesn't have. The chocolate has lots of funding to study. What those because any group that sell something will usually fund scientists to find out. What can we say about our product. So there's a lot of funding like that. It's one of the things that i you know going back to. School has been super interesting to me. Because it's given me the ability to be a lot more critical about this sort of things you know and i had a good well. You know broad education before but just made me realize how much more critical we have to be when we read certain things. Especially if they're not linking directly to the study yes. I'm sure that there are things that chocolate does. Carib has a slightly different profile. It somewhat high in protein for a fruit it is high. I think tasks him to relative thing you know i. I don't know that. I'd put it up next to a banana and but you know it's slightly different nutrient profile as well but as far as there being a miracle cure for whatever that all remains to be seen. I'm not gonna say it doesn't exist you. You have to have the funding to go looking for that sort of thing. We had some first time question. Nascar's three of them had the same question. Tara tiger studio selene n louder and samantha ryan Samantha said so people tend to go all in for the latest food trends without considering the environmental impacts of our increased demand and samantha has seen a lot more care products in grocery stores in the last few years. Hey care bring it on. But samantha is curious as to how sustainable it is as a food source and nicholas mp also thinks that's a solid question. I think i mean. I think it's really rather sustainable because as i said it can be grown on lands. That are marginal for other sorts of crops. It can take a range of ph but you know it tends to grow and sort of like more alkaline rocky. It can grow even anywhere from adobe soil like we have in southern california is not ideal for it but you know there's these eighty one hundred year old trees there so i think like anything. It's kind of like what you how you decide to go about it. But i think one thing that you can say will keep it from being too. Destructive is the fact that it actually doesn't like a lot of water so if you plan it someplace that's really you know that shouldn't be getting arrogated. A whole heck of a lot care won't do well if you're arrogating it. A whole heck of a long that actually keeps it into it. Keeps it in its lane so to speak To know last patron question. But i thought you would appreciate that wealth. How had a question that what the heck even is a carib and why have i never learned that those dried brown snake bananas hanging in the trees or edible so well how's life is now changed. I like i like snake bananas very good band name snake bananas when i break off from my band do solo project right last questions. I always ask last two. What's the shittiest thing about carib. What sucks the most about the trees or the process or anything. Whatever gets your goat. While there's a lot of things i could come up with. I think i'll come up with that item. Which is that. they're so under appreciated. I think is what sucks for me and in their maltreated so like a lot of the stuff that people like to complain about about them. So cities will say oh. This is unsuitable for planning here. And it's like well you know if you don't hire people whose expertise is trees if you hire people whose expertise is being in a cherry picker in using a chainsaw. And they don't know about this the species they're dealing with and then you maltreat the species. Why are you blaming the species in all right right. So that's that's the worst thing i think is just knowing what an amazing cool plant. This is for mediterranean climates. And how you know really selflessly. It gives an how much credit takes i think is the worst thing and certainly in the process of doing. You know those the fieldwork where i was going from street a street tear. It really hurts. When you come back and you see a stump Oh i know i cry. Every time i read the giving tree every dang gambia. Yeah i tweeted out from my account today. A twenty sixteen story from the cider. La which was a photo of carib tree that was cut down in somebody had made a memorial to it and it had like on gold ink on a black background. Had this whole like sa but in big big letters was like why no one listening to this will walk by a dry brown snake banana. Same way you know. He'll say thank you and maybe if you don't mind i'll chew on one of you for a moment as i walked down the street now as a person who walks down the street. I am privileged in that sidewalk cracks. Don't derail my day or typically threaten my life like the would some folks especially those who use any mobility devices and one thing i love about. Megan is how great of an advocate. She has for all kinds of people and founded. Uc access now. This past rely on the thirtieth anniversary of the americans with disability act passing and she leaves something called a demand. Efecto calling for better design and inclusion inaccessibility. Not just for herself but for other university of california students with disabilities at every campus.

"Carib and. I don't think that it works out for him. Chocolate chocolate. Do you ever catch. Tv shows or movies carib getting hated on or have they ever used it on on like food network in a respectful way. I haven't seen it on places like food network or whatever. I wouldn't be surprised if it starts coming into that. Because as i told you when i first started looking for this stuff in two thousand thirteen there was a great deal less out there. In fact even the wikipedia entry was really really spars in the wikipedia entry as a good reasonably beefy entry. Now but just as there's a sort of local war movement other places and just as a lot of other places are trying to rediscover their indigenous regional cuisines. The mediterranean has been doing that as well and so cyprus and greece and italy and other places where carib has been an aspect. I think that is really important of this. Is like in in the us and the uk and places where they had these sort of health food movements disorder disingenuous stuff. With the reason. It wasn't respected in. Its its home area. Quite so much seems to be linked to the fact you know again like the giving tree. It's like it gave in. Its gave during like some of the worst times they had so they they had were one and then they had the the great depression and then there was the spanish civil war and then there was world war two and all through that period middle class and poorer people were surviving on care of because shipping shipping lanes and things were closed down during the war. Carib is a source of sugar from sugar. You can also make alcohol by the way It's like anything you know. You can like something but if you're eating at twenty four seven for weeks at a time you might get so that you don't wanna see so much of it anymore hence a lot of people just stabbing carib in the back slandering comparing it to something else entirely jonathan. Kaufman wrote a two thousand eighteen new yorker piece titled quote. How carib traumatized a generation. Now unlike the nutty pleasant flavor of carib opinions on carib are not mild. What else is a quote that says like is the devils raisin or something like that know something like that uncovered raising nicholas empathy for same question asker in western know. I've read that. The processing involves using an acid or roasting to remove the skin of the seed and has the same effect been achieved through fermentation essentially. How is it processed the factories that do this. If only recently started coming online. When i first started looking i knew that this kind of processing happened but i didn't i couldn't go. It wasn't like factories had websites. Even that lehman game. They're starting to now though. And i've seen progress photos of it being processed. You have to ask not. Just what's possible but given that we're talking. Capitalism here whatever's cheapest is. What's probably going to get done Okay so after you harvest a bunch of neglected overlooked cara pods. you can. Kitchen process them by washing them and boiling it and just enough water to cover it or steaming until tender and then you can cut open the pods. You remove the seeds and you cut the pods into small pieces and you. Dry them out. And then you put the pieces in a blender and grind into a powder and just process small amounts at a time. According to some directions. I found on permaculture dot org the seeds however get turned into locust bean gum but the really hard. So don't jump on them with your teeth place and i did read a few studies that commercially processed cara powder has fewer beneficial compounds than home processed. So another good reason to ask your neighbors if you can eat their lawn trash now. What if you want to grow your own lawn trash some patron folks including austin-based sutton taggart maria zhukov. Livers partner laura springer and catherine jordan all asked about this and we have a few people that one no no put their names in an aside if they can grow carib in their backyard. One person catherine jordan from saint paul minnesota. Can you do that or do you have to be in italy australia or california well in minnesota if you have a greenhouse that you can keep to non humid mediterranean conditions than. Yes you would be able to. I grow i. I don't own any land so mine are grown in pots. That's not at all the ideal for what you're supposed to do. But that's what i do and so it is certainly possible to grow in a pot. Once you get care of into a pot you you still going to have to water more often than you would normally have to water it but if you live if you live in a mediterranean climate or vary adjacent to it the way that arizona is then yeah you can grow it and i would highly recommend that people do so because it's a part of the way it's drought-resistant is that has lower water needs and it has lower water needs partly because it's got very leathery leaves that make sure that the water doesn't come out of it as easily but also partly because it's not growing as fast and so it isn't a bit of an investment is not gonna grow like a wheat. It'll take a little while before you see something that grows taller than you are. Patron radim markham wrote in and said that. There's a jewish folk tale about an old man being scorned for planting a treat because they supposedly take seventy years to fruit and he won't be around to enjoy it by that because he's already so old which i think sounds very mean but really to know. Is there any truth to that or does it. Just make a good cautionary story. Is it true that it takes seventy years to give you pods or is that flimflam. No that's as i said. I think that that came out of some sort of religious texter or story rather than the reality. I should emphasize because there's so little funding and because care does so much in his so good even as it is. There actually has been no breeding effort whatsoever. That i know of i what i came to grad school to do was to learn how to be a plant breeder and so it's kind of remarkable that it does so many things so well and this is just with very little improvement other than just going around the countryside and picking the best one you see and then clearly propagating matt clone only propagating means that instead of just rolling the dice and planting some seeds. Agriculture relies on things like grafting from parent tree to ensure that they get really good genetics. Good fruit and apples and bananas tons of crops are colonially propagated. Meghan explains when the mediterranean in australia. Or whatever what they do is they often will either plant the seed out in the field and then when the seat gets large enough to graph though they'll grafter but it And so the variety if you re grafting budding you can get carib in anywhere from three to eight years. Kind it depends. Oh if you're growing it from seed.

"Pod mouth and if you are dying to know yourself where your closest carib tree is you can go to a naturalist dot org and i did. I found some within two blocks of me. And now i wanna go say hi and hug them and see if i can nibble on their offerings. Sure they're in season during the late summer and early fall but meghan says if they're on the tree still and no one is fighting you for them pocket you can this seeds. What do you make. What the seats. Well have you ever picked up and looked at the ingredients of yogurt or cottage cheese or ice cream and seen an ingredient that says locust bean gum. No locust flam about to busted now of ealing. I know where this is going. Locust bean gum or care bean gum. That's made from the seat. Oh my god is there. A lot of like Fiber in them. Is it what what makes a gloomier stickier gummy There's a there's a substance in it called galactic man and and it's a long chain sugar and when you have these sort of long chain kinky sugars. I mean in terms of the shape of the molecule Then it means that they kind of lay on each other in a way that is not you know doesn't collapse very much right. So it thickens. Whatever it's in doesn't have a strong taste on. Its own so it makes it a perfect thing to put into something that you like perfectly well you want to taste the taste of that item but you also want that item to be thicker and easier to handle. I remember when yogurt release started becoming more popular in a mainstream way. When i was young in the seventies. They taught me that. I don't read labels enough. Play yogurt taste french culture and for some reason they just decided that we need to something thicker so so they pick it up and caribbean gummer. Locust bean gum as it's more commonly called. Lbj out locust bean gum. That's vegetarian. And i believe it's also you know as long as it goes through the right authority and gets approved. It's kosher so it makes it something you can use in a lot of different products. And what why locust. Bean gum does locus. They just love care of trees locust flimflam about to be busted another common name in english and also in german and other things for care is saint. John's bread so in the bible. There's a thing where you know. I think it's john the baptist rather than john the gospel writer but That he was out in the desert and he was living on locusts. And honey and the locus that they're referring to there are care pods h- oh he wasn't eating grasshoppers no. He wasn't a lot of protein though. Yeah exactly right. Yeah like from the locust problems they're having in east africa and other places right now. You know you. You definitely go well. Yeah it would be nice if we were all cooler about eating that because it is protein. Yeah it would sort of knocked two birds with one stone it without having to kill bird for more on eating bugs. Feel free to listen to the wonderful entomology anthropology episode back in january twenty nineteen but getting back to megan's research she started to gravitate to the scrappy hardy under loved tree. So i just thought okay There i know that care of street trees are. I can start looking around to see where other locations are in la area. That are close enough. That i can visit on reasonably frequent basis. And i just went out there literally with a clipboard and pencil and And just started writing down everything. I noticed about the plant And i think. I may even have done that before i looked up. Anything more about it So that i could keep you know. Initially keep very fresh in terms of one of my seeing here again but i did. Of course soon go to the web and this isn't twenty thirteen and there was a great deal less about care of on the web than there is now but both then and now. I was sort of astounded. That a species that i knew had been around for so long. It had been known for so long had been Semi domesticated for so long that there was a very little good authoritative information either in horticultural gardening kind of side of things or the horticultural science side of things. And that just was really odd to me. I mean how could you be around something all the time and like nobody's choosing to actually study it. I still can't really answer for you. Why that is. And that's why. Like when i do a presentation on it i mean you say it. It's it's like the rodney dangerfield of the world. If you don't it don't get no respect. No respect from anyone. I love rodney dangerfield. Yes somebody was using that Somebody using jeff of him the other day. And i'm like oh i gotta i gotta take that for my presentation. That's sort of tie tucking motion. You know yeah. Yeah so by looking online what i could find. Where a lot of myths that would get Promulgated about it. And what. I mean by that. Is that if you're saying that if caribou takes forty years to become mature right to be able to even bear its first fruit. Well then i wanna see your citation for that. I happen to know that was extremely unlikely to be true. But people repeat that because there is a sort of I don't think it's literally from the christian bible but it's it's it's from. I think of judea text that sort of like largely that old stuff was taken from her or or like the tales of some. Rabbi or something and it in that tail it says it took forty years but you know forty is also a name a number that we see crop up over and over again because it has forty days and forty nights forty forty years out in the desert or whatever you know so. It's more like a symbolic number. It really doesn't have to do with what the character does itself. Just that people repeat it so much that they don't even link to like where there's an authoritative source source. But you say. Oh well care care. Abc's always the same and so therefore the word that we use for carat in it was used for measurement and therefore twenty four carat. Karat comes from carol. Oh my gosh. that's what they say it. Actually they are very similar but they're not like you know you wouldn't wanna use that in any kind of modern it's not like a metrological stander gilligan's island or something and maybe yeah god so a lot of things like that and then the other thing that happened was that i kept coming across this name of this guy named dr j. elliott coit and i would notice that some of the few things i could find on that were informative were from the sky and i was lucky that even in two thousand thirteen the california avocado society or whatever. The successor organization was to that had put up. Pdf's of some of these old newsletters and things that they had and quite had written quite a few articles quite is super important in the development of avocados as a commercial product which was really centered in southern california in the early twentieth century. Oh so yes dr. J. elliott. Coit was the granddaddy of california avocados. There you go but he had a sweet spot for our friend carib also he had put together a cab demonstration orchard in san diego county starting in.

"Have their work double checked or focus on qualitative things and we heard this very thing. Actually from the excellent. Dr kelly swift of corporate thanatos and in that episode. She discusses her. Adhd and she has gone on to be a huge star in her field the fact that people were willing to admit yeah that star that stereotype you know we have people incites who are complete whizzes at it and that's great. It's really it's important for the type of work that demands that but it doesn't mean the other sides of science don't always need that all the time you're working in a team and everybody has their own strengths when it comes to botany and music. I'm sure that they fulfil different things for you. But is there anything that similar about them when you think about projects that you work on or anything that excites you about both kind of in the same way. Gosh i suppose for me when i'm singing or when i'm singing in front of an audience. I'm very much present in the moment. And when i'm doing field work working with plants or when i'm gardening or that is about the most you know i don't find tation easy. My brain talks to me a lot. so something gets me out of my own head is very much. You know doing that kind of observation of nature does that. That's a really beautiful thing. That's got to be such a great incentive to do field work to you yeah. I think it's also something that you know doing this work where. I chose for logistical reasons. Working on street trees. It brings me into contact with what those trees and what public trees mean to people and certainly there have been studies in terms of the mental health benefits of living someplace where there's plenty of greenery. It's clearly not just working for me. That sort of calming meditative aspect to being around a tree. That takes you out of yourself and you can just observe the wind going through the trees or you can hear you know like outside my door right now. There's a walnut tree and you can hear the sound of the squirrels eating and you said street trees in particular. How do you differentiate a tree industry. I call something a street tree if it is something that is planted usually by the city in in the little hell strip. That's in front of people's yards your if they're called the health strip or no. That's one of the things i mean. It's not the official name of it. But if something i sort of picked up for there's a blog called garden rant. I think i introduced in. It can be a heaven strip to people. it's a health. Meghan says it. Generally the city is responsible for the hell strip but sometimes the homeowner will just go out and plant something in there and you know nobody cares. Catches them maybe a business will prune. Some branches covered their sign edge or just chop down a tree without getting caught. And there's nonprofits like tree people who sometimes care for the street trees if the government is neglecting them but street trees are all over. Which makes them both familiar and intriguing but easy to get to. So i needed some aspect. That could study. That was nearby. That was inexpensive for me to study. And that's when. I remembered that there had been cared trees near my grammar school and that there were in our region A number of street trees that were curbs. And there's a there's a tree fruit that can study three hundred sixty five days a year so that was my initial approach to it and i perhaps you're biased. Perhaps you're not is carib. The best street tree. Well but i think i think for any species. The cliche thing is right. Plant for the right place So care is very good. And i would say it's an ideal tree to plant in coastal and some valley parts of california once you start getting north north where the winter temps get down below twenty It's not a good thing to plant. But what is care tree. It's a member of the boissier family. So that's the same family that you know the beans. We eat come from a very large family. Some of the family does what's called nitrogen fixing and the used to be called the la- league. No say so late. They're legumes and carib is in the genus tonia which only has two members so to one of two members of that genus. Wow that's tiny right. yeah it is. It's really an oddball. A lot of ways. By the way i heard the genus sarah tonia and wondered if it had any kind of shared history with serotonin the neuro that keeps us chipper. But sarah tonia is spelled with a c and it's actually closer to carrington coming from the root for horn in case you feel hoard up for analogy For more on saratoga. By the way which comes from the word for serum you can listen to the molecular neurobiology episode with dr brain aka crystal dorthe phd. But let's resume the legume chat on this. What is become a pod. It's an evergreen tree. It's native to the mediterranean which is one of the reasons does well in which has a mediterranean climate for the moment climate. Change is real. It's what's called diagnosis. Which means that it has sexes. It tends to fall broadly into male or female. Although there are some that are called hermaphrodites. And what they're referring to there really is the flower parts in the tree makes and The females in the hermaphrodites produce pods and the pods are very useful. You can use the whole pot and the seeds in various ways hole in it. Are you allowed to collect cara pods if it's a street tree can you harvest them. Yeah people do I mean honestly. Even though people homeowners tend to get very possessive of things that are in that hell strip but even if the if the homeowner planet it the hell strip is not their property in most places. So yeah you're within your rights. I would just say you know. Be polite don't leave him best. Don't climb on people's scores but yeah yeah no it does happen. And they're obviously edible because all of us know carib as chocolates weird less offensive cousin kind of right here of his call as a substitute correct. Well that's how we've come to use it but it's really rather recent development relatively speaking. Oh yeah oh yeah. It's very reason. I mean if you think about it what we think of as chocolate. That didn't even develop until the late nineteenth century. Oh i didn't know that. Yeah in the in the sense that we think of it in terms of like this bar that is that is processed and conked and it's made with cocoa butter. Cocoa butter in chocolate is from cacao. It's not from coconut. You know But it's just processed in this very smooth way where those things two things are put together. That's more of a mid to late nineteenth century development whereas prior to that you know if you get like mexican hot chocolate like he bought out or something and you have these cakes. That are together. That's much closer to what chocolate was for years. Ps must know which you must the etymology of coconut and cocoa. It's about to go from confusing and muddled to just adorable sorta so cocoa and chocolate and cocoa. Which is a highly processed form of rock akao. Those all stem from an indigenous mesoamerican word used to describe the cacao plant which does not have nuts. It has seeds and coconuts. Tropical coconuts are neither cocoa or nuts. They're actually something called a group. Which is like an apricot or a peach or cherry cocoa in the word coconut comes from the portuguese word for boogeyman or hobgoblins because of its three dots that looked like a creepy skull. So if you ever again order opinion. I just know that you're sipping the oily blood of a hob goblin droop. Tada so chocolate is from cow. Which is not coconut.

More reserved fashion to me, I it's refreshing given everything that we had covered up until that point public service is a privilege, and it is truly an honor to serve as Missouri's fifty seventh. Governor Mike pledge to all Missourians. To work hard each and every day to bring honor integrity, transparency the governor's office. We have an opportunity beginning today.

And so that came across the other aspirations came across in him. But governor parson is I almost want to say that he could be in line behind me at the grocery store. He's the guy who's going to hold not the air would not hold the door open for a woman. But governor parson reminds me of Papa. He is just the sweetest nicest guy, I've had conversations with him that aren't news news conversations. I've asked him to get involved in various efforts that I'm involved in. And he all the absolutely look at that. Now, maybe is that a politician talking any walks away and forgets what I said, I have no idea. But he knew I believe he knew coming in what he had to do that he had to restore confidence that he had to restore some sense of calm, and he had to bring. A sense of the state's values if you will whatever those are the people, but they're they're they're they do exist. He knew he had to do that.

"KOMO. X welcome back. I'm your host Ryan record joined from the camel X newsroom. Megan Lynch, what are some of your interview techniques? When when you go out, what are some of the things you hope to accomplish? When you're talking to someone. I usually have a rough list in my head of of what I wanna get. But it's really the basics. It's who what why where when how and just drilling down. And you know, I always tell people I just want to have a conversation, especially when I'm working on an in-depth piece. Some of my interviews are half hour long. I got a lot of tape to go through when I'm dying. But sometimes it takes that much to really get to the heart of the matter and really get someone comfortable and opening up to you, especially because a lot of those interviews are with people that are not necessarily people who you would consider newsmakers I loved the interview average people and get them to open up, and it's amazing the trust. They will put. In me to tell me sometimes some pretty intimate things about what's going on in their lives. That's how that's one of the weird things people. Some people are willing to open up, and sometimes you have to get to the point where they're willing to open up. I always liked the news stories where you can go to and maybe a breaking news story. And some of the neighbors are standing out because they're curious of what's going on two. And you talk to the neighbors, and they always have a story about. Oh, so and so or I saw this right? Saw that those seem like the best people to talk to in breaking news situation. Yeah. Do you have like you keep an eye out for certain people when you go where we're going out on the street. And would you say, oh, that's going to be a good person to talk to you. Were you always looking for someone to interview, you know, what's funny as people would usually come up to you? Yeah. You're there's usually that one guy or gal that they see. And they wanna they wanna get your ear and tell you what they think is going on. So you've won some awards over the years working at camel, and I've been very fortunate to have been recognized by my peers on numerous occasions. Let's talk about some of those recognitions. What can you tell me the first award? You won the first award. I won. And I think this is what really launched me into doing more of the series, which of course, my background was in public radio, and I had done some in depth pieces. But it was a story about a little boy who had a very rare form of cancer and his family was having a very difficult time getting their insurance to approve treatment that wasn't necessarily approved for use in a child that young basically, I just made phone calls. I put their story out there on the air. You know, made phone calls to the insurance and alternately kind of bridging that gap the insurance company agreed to revisit it, and they they paid for his treatment. And so that that was one of the first awards I one here at came away. Six probably I don't remember if that was a regional Murrow or misery broadcasters, probably one or the other or both, but that really launched me into the series work. Wow. That's remarkable. We're joined.
