What Do You Know About the Galapagos Islands?
"Do you know about the galapagos islands. Probably that it's a remote island in the pacific ocean but it played a hand in the works of charles. Darwin the theory of evolution. But that's not all that makes the island unique it's the backdrop for one of the most bizarre murder mysteries which includes poly-amorous fake teeth. Giant tortoises and murder. Today we're gonna talk about the galapagos affair so the human history of the glucose islands doesn't begin with charles darwin really though his visit in eighteen. Thirty five definitely. Put the islands on the map will literally put it on the map. Us whalers and pirates were already. they're hunting giant galapagos tortoises. These tortoises were actually very humongous. Very slow think like thousands of pounds and could live for years in the hold of a ship providing fresh meat on long. Voyages flurry an island in the galapagos. Has the most human activity and it's the only island with a fresh water supply in eighteen twenty. All the giant tortoises were killed on the island. When crew members of the ill fading whaling vessel essex torched it for no apparent reason after the essex left a sperm whale sunk their ship. So there you go for months. The sailors drifted helplessly in lifeboats sunburn. Starving before turning to cannibalism to survive. They drew straws to see who became food for the rest and then they do another straw to decide who would kill that person of the twenty crew. Only eight survived. They were found off the coast of south america. Insane and knowing that human bones their story inspired herman melville's novel moby dick. You may have heard of it all this to say that there is a what is thought of as an island curse the curse of the giant tortoise a creature that back when they were still around could according to those who interacted with it.

I'm telling you, like New Jersey is, the father said, I think I've ever been outside of training. The first time you travel overseas to a country that's not necessarily a friendly and I think we flew a C five a over there, and there's these massive cargo doors and lower. I'm telling you, I want to be dramatic, but it was like something out of a movie. The cargo doors are dropping or because we fly with all the president's cars and everything you know it's a free ride. Just jump on the plane. It's going down at lands and, you know, the guy comes on board the lead advance agent He's like, you know, Welcome to Russia was seriously was out of salt Look like something out of the movies or I'm a young kid, you know, in my twenties. You know, being overseas where the rules don't matter like they do here. There's no real rule of law in Russia. Whatever works for Vladimir Putin works me. Wasn't Putin back then? But you get the point. When you fly back to the United States, you land and J B a joint base. Andrews used to be Andrews Air Force Base. And you see that flag man? Stars and Stripes.

A Conversation with Whitney Johnson
"Whitney. Welcome to the show andy. I am delighted to be here. I'm excited to to talk to you. Because i liked your book a lot. So you know some and we didn't write for sales audience per se but as a lot of very sales specific stuff in there. I thought at least maybe the lens. I read it so i can't wait to chat with you about it but one thing i wanted to ask sign. Hopefully you're well. Were recording this in the midst of the the lockdown sidano omit the formalities. But we are well for asking. I mean it's one of those questions that it used to be just a nice city but it's now a real question is a real question right. What's good and you're joining us from where we live in lexington virginia so my my husband is a professor at southern virginia university which is also near virginia military institute and washington and lee. So we're about three hours driving south west of washington dc. So is that out neuronal them. Yes yes that's our closest airport is about fifty miles away. Wow okay so having lived in big cities or served doing a little more not so rural but smaller city living. It's definitely rural. We completely disrupted ourselves. I mean why give you look outside of our window in the morning we can see deer and there are cows next door to us in fact when we very first moved here. Because we've lived in boston in manhattan in large cities when we first moved here. I remember waking up one morning. And i like hitting hitting but like you know pulling my honey honey. Turn off your phone. Because it was buzzing buzzing any turnover. And he's like those. Are the cows unbend an adjustment for us. I find one. I'm away from manhattan anywhere. I go but like my visit. My sister in wisconsin. And both my wife and i get woken up by the quiet. It's like it's too quiet and it's like wait. Why are we going every week. And you're accustomed to having the noise outside all the time that are. Do you know at some level that that it's too quiet attack keeps me up. I love that looking at by the quiet. So i was gonna ask you. Are you follow soccer fan. Because you wrote that you are going to produce a reality. Tv show about sauerland america and listeners. To show that. I'm a avid soccer fan. Oh i wish. I could say that i am. I got really excited. So this This is actually almost fifteen years ago. Now where i. I was a huge american idol. Fan in a huge. So you think you can dance fan. And and i was doing a lot of work in latin america was equity analyst. And so you know. I've been to mexico fifty times to spend a lot of my doing work a lot. American one of our companies that we followed on as equity analyst was televisa which time was basically abc cbs nbc and fox combined and again this is fifteen years ago and so we thought wait. We have an opportunity here to basically do you know. Soccer meets american idol and just got so excited about the stories of that could have produced on so while. I'm not a soccer fan per se. I am a cinderella story fan and i just thought that that could have been an amazing august show to have produced. I wanna watch for sure. So the regular listeners. Get accustomed going off on soccer stuff here. Tangents everything relates to soccer. Soccer explains the world. There was a book that wrote that. So about that so I think i read that book. Actually it was a good book. Yeah yeah so Pet the author on the show. So so we're talking about transformation personal transformation you. I've really enjoyed your book. Which you've just updated and re released disrupt yourself masterless change and speed up your learning curve. So what was the original impetus. Write the book you know. That's one of those questions that its you can answer many different ways on. But let me see. If i can streamline so that we're not here all day on you know as i just mentioned i was equity analyst. Were keep merrill lynch In a focusing on stocks in latin america like televisa so like america melville and this is back in two thousand three two thousand four. I read the book. The innovators dilemma by christian at harvard. Business school and i remember reading that book and it just was in many a transformative experience. If you will. Because i was looking at wireless at the time in every single quarter america. Mobile was beating my numbers like just every time and and telmex numbers weren't so that was the wireline company. In american mobile was the wireless i read. I read innovators dilemma. I said oh. That's what's going on. Is that wireless is disrupting wireline. And i was just fascinated. That there was a s- theory that could explain to me the world and help me understand what was happening And the more. I read that book it more i started. I think maybe just because of my own personal bent started thinking. Well how does this apply to me. Like i understand. It's explained products and services in companies in countries. But i also remember having this moment in just two thousand four. And i had just had this conversation with Someone in management saying you know what really liked to try something else. I'd like to do something else attorney. I'd like to go into management kind of laughed at me. Kind of snickered. Like ov- outs nice. That's never going to happen. And i remember coming back to that book and being you know what if i wanna do whatever it is. I think i'm meant to do which i had a very vague notion. I think many of us do I'm going to have to disrupt myself. I'm gonna have to leave wall street and go do something else.

"melville" Discussed on The Projection Booth Podcast
"Brian email agents to see if they're interested in talking about this film and nobody really go back to me. This was in early twenty sixteen and then because i live in edinburgh in scotland. We have a film festival and two thousand sixteen was the thirtieth anniversary. Highlander and kneel dropped into my inbox. As i mentioned the book that they were going gonna celebrate islander on they were inviting you. Bring it over to to celebrate thirty years or so. I just I thought well if i can get 'cause clancy brian Hoshino but him and highlander has did not really go onto well over the years. He could have distanced himself from the world of highlander so to get him for any time. Talking about that film was going to be a bit mccoo. so so basically Shortish bears i suppose to say. He almost landed on my doorstep on. He would've should've been the most difficult person to get into the us. And i go ahead. And i and so i thought well. This is exciting thing. So i carried on from there and i think what i started emailing people to say. Can i speak to. You have already spoken to clancy brian. It starts with a chain reaction and people think. Oh well clancy's doing it then. Maybe i should do it. And so it kind of builds up from there and just one other things I love highlander. I couldn't do these things that i didn't enjoy writing about. So i in nineteen ninety four. I think it was and it stuck with me since then. So combination of really enjoying film on yet clancy. Brian just slumming edinburgh for for a surprise visit highland or have a special place for you or for the people of scotland since it is set partially in scotland. I think so. I try and address that little. Bits and introduction to the book where i mentioned that scotland as a very small country and we don't have a film industry or on. Tv industry here family produced some films tv shows but really shouldn't try and get a job in that industry. Here on succeeds provide law so anytime a film is made. Here are a set here. I would say we at or certainly i. I think a few other people as well. I think we can take our hearts a little bit and think. Oh well somebody else's tried to make a film gear so let's try supports it and Islanders just one of those combs that has so many different things going for. Sean connery ecorse. Who is probably skull was famous actor nikolay difficult to argument and even though he has been retype too many years. I think he's probably still the most famous. So maybe you mcgregor is catching up with these days. Or or even general butler a difference there but to the shown and of course santon islands and so. Yeah so i think there's a special place. I think we can laugh ourselves as well once again when people make films if they're not from scotland and the guys who made islanders scottish american producers although it was mainly partition crew when they try and they get an actor or actress to Accents we kind of laugh at them a little bit and Judge the military As well but in a in a in a fun way. I think of course you go mel gibson's scottish accent which is actually not that bad so no i think there is definitely a little thing where we can see. Yeah that's that's our film. In the as made by american producers. I know down in new zealand do hobbit tourists. Do they do highlander. Tourists and scotland Tourism a thing. I mean visit. Scotland are tourist boards Does appreciate it set jetting. I think it's cold as a big thing and people come here to see where things are films. But you have to kill yourself. I mean some of the locations visited while writing the book one of the which is the famous speech. That's in the scene. Where sean connery and christopher lambert run the beach that beach is very difficult to find in the fox. I went to. I go the first time when i thought. Because there's no there's nothing to tell you you're there. I based all memory and thinking this luke salat like the beach and it turned on one so no. I think we could do a lot. Better with with having highlander tours. Are james volunteers. James bones being filmed here a few times now. Need to better that. I think i think i just smelled a brand new industry for you. Yeah i've been. I've done a few remember few years ago. I did a when brave was coming pixar. I think he's a patient disney movies disney and that came out and bizarrely. Someone did ask me to go on the rave tour. Even though it's an animated film but they producers in the director the director did come over unskilled sculpture and so you can actually go and see where locations were based based on. but no i've been refunded not be a fun job to just go around scotland as a tour guide you manage to get the hardest interview out of the way i who were some of the other people that you said. I really have to talk to these folks. Well i really wanted. of course. christopher lambert thought go to have him russell. And i think when i was. I can't quite remember when your episodes about highlander mites. But i remember hearing it and thinking. I'm jealous because i think i don't think i'd go. Russell points You got gregory widen on. I thought i'd love to speak to gregory as well. So you'll those are the kind of key people. Of course roxanne. Hart beat the edney so the main guys i wanted and i did admittedly thankfully it would be easier to get than they wear. Russell is difficult guy. Depend on lovely guy. I'm really happy to talk about the film. But he's still got a career he's still directing things which is brilliant but it's not brilliant when you're trying to track people died as shoe. You know very well to russell. I think i spoke to russell. The first time he was in a car in sight africa. I think in the back of a car on zone mobile phone. And he's going to the airports and i said to him. You know love to speak to you about highlander. And he said oh yeah you know i think it took another year maybe to get him again on the phone. The christopher's well. I almost interviewed him in two thousand sixteen as well as clancy the we after the edinburgh screening in the into i did with him in edinburgh and it was going to be a screening in london and christopher was there and so i did go into china into christopher but sadly the nameless in his family and so he had to go off and speak to someone on the phone for a few hours. So that again. That was summer twenty sixteen on. I think it took until christmas Seventeen speak to him on the phone. So yeah. I was in it for the long below hall with will these guys. I also wanted to speak to the rights as well as well. As gregory widen wanted to speak.
How Author Emily M Danforth Discovered Openly Bisexual Early 20th Century Writer Mary Maclane
"School. And i'm like i know but like i am just trying to. I try to tell you quickly. When did you get your hands on. Mary mclean and her memoir. And what made you think oh would make a great noble. I didn't. I didn't think that i was just just reminded of this. Because i was trying to figure out exactly what it is. I've been talking about the book. And i've been saying is in my late twenty s. It was sometime in grad school and my office maze My second year of grad school told me recently. She's like i know when you got it because you wouldn't shut up about that book and she didn't like me particularly which i didn't know the time we're good friends now. She was kind of annoyed to be. My office may learning all kinds of things right so already. She didn't like me. Apparently i wouldn't shut up about mclean's memoir so it was. It was roughly around. Like two thousand eight and i had read about her. I was doing research about diana where she lived when she wrote the memoir this mining town and i thought i was going to set a story. There's sort of colorful place at the turn of the twentieth century Read about her and then filed that away and looked her up and became really fascinated but became fascinated with her because a new the legend of her right before i read the memoir itself and so he knew that cocktails had been named after her and she blazoned her licensed her image to a cigar manufacturers are and that she was openly bisexual rights in nineteen too many new these sort of like interesting facts about our that. Our book sold eighty thousand copies in the first month. But i did not know how much i was gonna love the book. And that's i think the thing that really sort of seeded itself. So i was like oh she seems fascinating and then i got the book. Like spoke is so funny. This book feels like something that i would sort of think right now. Right sheets Writing yeah absolutely. I was reading and i was like i feel intensely like this would have been may as well right and you look. How were you thinking these things and they miss. You wanted to title it. Wait the doubles coming. Which is like the best memoir of all time so it was once. I read the book that i really serves a new that like some new. Do something with it. But i was well into writing a different version of plan bad heroines. That really was only gonna tell the present-day story of the of the making of the sort of curse horror film. Before i kinda figured out that mary were play a role. You know what i mean. So it's not like this perfect light. Oh i found her more than i said. It didn't work that way for like. I have to find thing like this is probably looks familiar to you and i think a lot of creative people like i have to find a thing. Like let it marinate for a long time before figure. Oh yeah so i mean. I can't say enough about her book. I think one of the funny things about doing press for this book is just the number of people that one thing. I made her up even like go look at her wikipedia page. And i'm like murray mclean would not like this. I feel like. She's turning over in her grave reducing. I'll be thrilled to think that like you know You know it just shows you. How many people still don't know about her like unreal to me right. How of there have been scholar since the seventies kind of trying to lake collector work. In and a number of scholarly books published really of writings about mary mclean and a couple of good memoirs in melville house reissued the book under its original title but but even still like an alarming number of people. Don't know anything about awesome. Yeah i where we decree history. And i never had a pet until we got an email from your publicist saying. Hey do an episode about this. And look at emily's your. I was like ooh this looks gay. It's so it's so. That's the thing is like i mean. Now you've read the book right like she's so explicit in her longing in her desire right and she's like trying to find the language of the day to say like. I want to sleep with my former teacher right. Like it's just it's yeah and so even when i heard about like hurt like you might see like bisexual or sort of some sort of coating coated thing. I was not prepared for just how gay the book would be when i write him right. Like how many entries would be devoted to these. You know this this this real. She had on her former teacher. I mean it's you know it's it's it throughout the book. She's talking about her. An anemone lady so yup became sort of know. I think like. I became kind of haunted by not mary mclean. That wouldn't be the right way to put it. But but certainly
Elliot Seguin: Test Pilot
"Did you get an aviation? grew up in a flying family My Dad had assessment semi to for most of my childhood than than I guess when I was pretty young for remember you bought a swift and we had swift grown up in that timeframe when you start getting into get into cars, 'cause you WanNa get into girls He's hot rod out at swift. He put a big motor in it and set some records with and. It was the perfect sendoff to will not playing with Clark's. Their place instead. That is awesome and you've had a great career after a growing up aviation as an engineer being a part of a lot of special programs aviation. How did you progress into a professional aviation career? yes. So The big thing was me and you he he was a pilot but just for So it was a big thing in the family that for me to even think about making money with aviation I didn't really have a good model for that. So establishing that model really came down to two guys. One was my uncle Berle who was a mechanic and the other was a guy named Dave Grohl who restored A spearman's and t six is just down the road from the airport where I learned to ride my bicycle. So between those two guys, they sort of established that model for how you could. Use Airplanes to to make your money rather than just spend it, and that's that the sugar trajectory that led to the rest of it. That is awesome. So l. it you have a really cool company name was Sabi flight test was Sabi erasing how did that name come about? Yeah. So we're enough we were eating Sushi right No, but So we we did come up with the name eating Sushi. We were looking for a name for the for the race plane are we had bought our cast it project that happened to be green and I was looking for a name that would tie the the color of the airplane to the branding and would also fit well on the side of the airplane. Right there's like that aspect ratio between the. Pilot's seat back bulkhead in the front of the Horizontal Stab, you WanNa kind of that space efficiently as possible So between that and you know having a lot of. It was going to be fun for fun to say this is a really engineering response. Sorry about that. But that was where we came up with with Sabi unfortunately now, we're stuck with it so. So tell us a little bit that company. Yeah. So I think you Kinda Kinda. Talk about Michael Brawl in in Dave right back in. Michigan. Right and so you sort of like I'm GonNa make money with aviation like what does that look like you're trying to figure out like how to set those sites right sort of doing bookwork get engineering degree like how's it all add up to what end up in in Muhabi at scaled right so quickly that that Idea becoming an engineer on aviation engineer on airplanes to like like, can you fly like what it's like test like that's like a really exponential curve right? We go from like WHOA can I make money with airplane to like oh? Wow. Like Mike Millville is like a high school trained like NPR slash astronaut that is the coolest thing ever, and how do you like do that right? Well. It turns out like other people coming up with that same thing at the same time. So there was like a handful of us at scale and really at the Mojave airport that we're all sort of competing for like you know who was GonNa the the visualization was that. Somebody was going to have to sit in the right seat of those spaceship flights somewhere between like yeah. Melville was going to get the first flight you know Pete or whatever but it was gonna be some flights before customers were in the right seat in the back seat and that Steve was gonna you know some get bored and they were going to put someone there and you would have a chance to be an astronaut supersonic all reversible controls rocket engine like everything flying the world's greatest Hondo. So, creating a path to make yourself competitive for that in this environment like mojave work for spaceship one before they should wonder but voyageur Mohammed was desolate. There was nobody really after spatial won the place got like flooded with talent. So. There's all these guys that are buying for my spot. I want that spot, right so I go to work as hard as I can all day but the other day there's slow there's time left the end of the day. What am I gonNA, do with it, and that's where we saw became came down to right. So whether it was with air racing or helping a friend developed with a platform whatever I can subsidize my flight test activities with a full time job, and then ideally I don't have to. Be With the Siren headed like design the airplane builder my wife working you know basically two fulltime jobs to get things done as you move to where you're doing that more and more professionally like just not happening to build the airplane is such a huge benefit independent of whether or not I get paid or not right. So if you can use that full-time job to subsidize the back end, that's where it was Sabi allows me to build that resume that hopefully makes me competitive remember you know the the sort of the end of the the civilian test pilot dream scale was when they started bringing in More and more military trust train test pilots, right military test pilot right and it's two million bucks to make him a fighter pilot. Then you drop another million to two million to make him a test pilot that's what you're competing with as a civilian, right so high, you get that experience. So I have to like give away my time at least I didn't have to build all those airplanes to get the experience and that's what the the basis of Assab years. Right. I have to make a silly youtube video or do some engineering build an airplane whatever it is to the flight test experienced resume because that's First of all sort of unforgettable experience in second ball. That's what we're passionate about. So so that's You're
Moby Dick Chapter Eight
"Welcome back to another episode of Church history. Last week we were talking about the pulpit that Latin Word Putnam, and that object that appears in so many churches. Well, we also find the pulpit, appearing in of all places that great American novel by Herman, Melville none other than moby. Dick Moby Dick has one hundred and thirty five chapters. They have fascinating names like the shark massacre and interesting names, two of the chapters in particular come early in the book that have great names chapter nine is entitled the sermon. Sermon, Chapter Eight is entitled The pulpit so this is Melville's description of a pulpit of a fabled new. England church, it's sort of a conglomerate picture that Melville is putting together. And of course they are about to go out to sea questing after the great white whale, and before they go, all the sailors will show up that. Sunday in church to hear that sermon before they're sent off to see, and they might not come back again well. This is chapter eight on the pulpit. Let's read Melville's description. He tells us how he's sitting there. In the Pew of the Church and Father Maple comes in, and then he starts walking towards the pulpit. Melville says like most old fashioned pulpits. It was a very lofty one and since. Our stairs to such a height would by its long angle with the floor seriously constrict the already small area of the chapel, the architect it seemed had acted upon the hint of Father Maple, and finish the pulpit without a stairs, substituting a perpendicular that is straight up and down side ladder like those used in mounting ship from a boat at sea. The wife of a whaling captain had provided the chapel with a handsome pair of red ropes for this latter. Halting for an instant at the foot of the ladder, and with both hands, grasping the ornamental knobs of those red ropes, Father Maple cast a look upwards, and then with a truly sailor, like, but still reverential dexterity hand over hand, mounted the steps as if ascending the main top of his vessel. Melville continues, nor was the pulpit itself without a trace of the same seat taste that had achieved the latter. It's paneled front was in the likeness of shifts, bluff bows and the holy. Bible rested on a projecting piece of scroll work fashioned after a ship's fiddle headed beak. What could be full of more meaning Melville asks. For the pulpit. Is Ever this Earth's foremost part? All the rest comes in its rear. The pulpit leads the world from thence. It is the storm of God's quick. Wrath is first descried, and the bow must bear the earliest brunt. From thence it is the god of breezes. Fair or foul is I invoked for favourable winds. Yes, yes, the world's a ship on its passage out not a voyage complete, and the pulpit is its prow.

Stephen Wright on 'Processed Cheese'
"Is the show most excited about. I've been excited in anticipation of it for a long time. The author Steven Wright has been on bookworm twice a four. I love his work and it takes him the Gourd zone time to complete it. I've been waiting for his newest novel which is called processed cheese and which is published by Little Brown. Oh for around seven years and as I read it I wanted it to never be over. I wanted to be reading it forever. I think like Stevens other books. It's made out of sentences and a feeling about the world that's completely his own knowing. No the title processed cheese. Stephen has been with you for a while. I've been wanting to write a book with that title since I can remember so. I finally did the title game before the Book Way. Back when I was sixteen. One of the things my father did was to make cheese board sees pieces of wood which cheese was attached under plastic at first when it started out like most American things they were real genuine supreme vintage cheeses but as things had to be less and less expensive to be made. These cheeses were replaced by process cheeses and the expensive store. The same bloomingdale's that sold the cheese board was replaced by five and ten where you could get. The junk is on the junk board in the junk rapper. And that was what growing up in. America was light during that period that was UAE. May Be we needed the sixties so when. I saw your tunnel processed cheese. It meant so much to me about the end of quality and the beginning of junk in my child he read it exactly the right way. That's terrific now. Tell me this is a book about as one of the first chapter says money money money money money money money. It's about the replacement of everything by the need for money. And more money and under funded coppell find that the husband has been hit by a bad. Were walking down a street. The bag is filled with hundred dollar bills. Which are wrapped in plastic packets? He suddenly got more money than he or his wife. Ambience know what to do with his name is graveyard. Her name is Ambien. Stephen Word of these names come from. I wish I knew they just. I don't know where they came from. The thing is that when they occurred to me it just seemed absolutely right that these were the right names for these people so they stock all of the names of the people in this book are based on industrial processes or Johnke. The city's the places are named things like random Burg this is the world that's died down and been replaced by the equivalent of processed cheese. John Exact has replaced everything. Yeah that is the theme of the book. Yes now the book is so funny. I mean you'll pardon me laugh out loud funny I laugh out loud myself sometimes thinking about phrase or line yes so that's pretty pleasing when he can laugh at your own stuff even years after you wrote it. It's a hung aureus book but a book. That's hilarious about a tragedy of life. That life does not feel like life anymore that life feels like its own version of processed cheese. Yeah exactly how do you live while riding such a book? It's Day by day. You just get through the day like everybody else. You know you get through each day as best you can but. I need to tell my listeners that Steven Wright our guest is the author of five books the first one was called Meditations in Green. It was the first major who Gustav Nation of Vietnam. The second book M Thirty One was a family romance. I pointed out when reading it that it seemed to be based on the nightmare. Gatherings in Faulkner's novel sanctuary. But you don't have to know that it's a Family of people who believe in Outer Space Aliens going native was a book. Oh Stephen I really was barely out of my twenties. I was given this show to do and I asked someone. I think it was an beady. Who SHOULD I meet in New York publishing? Who would help me to know how to go about doing books on my show and she sent me to the man who turns out to have been your life long friend and editor Michael Pietsch. Yes he gave means three chapters of the then unpublished looney tunes novel going native. I say gooney tunes novel because it has on its original edition a big looney tunes series of circles you expect bugs to be poking his head through And I then spoke to Stephen when going native came out the amalgamation Polka imagined that southern scientists were able to change the color of the skin of the people that they wanted to amalgamate. It's a bizarre disturbing novel. That reminds me of Herman. Melville's peer or the ambiguities. Steven Wright did me the favour of teaching me. What the word in that. Some title Pierre or the ambiguities means. Tell US Stephen. The subtitle is Pierre or the ambiguities and it turns out that in the nineteenth century. That was a phrase that was used for someone who lost their mind. He's got the ambiguities. Isn't that amazing? I did not know that 'til I was done with the book. If I had known that I would put it in

Bathsheba Demuth: Environmental Historian
"This episode of is on Conservation I spoke with author and environmental historian Bethsheba. Demuth Demuth is an assistant professor at Brown University who specializes in the intersection between humans. Ecosystems ideas in history the work that I do as an environmental historian is broadly focused on the North American and Russian Arctic and particularly the relationships between people and animals and people in Ecosystems. More broadly over the past two hundred years or so. We talked over. Skype demuth was in fairbanks as the professor was performing research for her new book. Her first book is titled Floating Coast and Environmental History of the Bering Straits. Npr called it. A quote deeply studied deeply felt book that lays out a devastating complex history of change notes. What faces us now and dares us to imagine better in quote as we proceed and get into this interview. I will note that I spoke with Professor Demuth while she was at the university library so it can be a little loud in the background at times. It's a busy place. I can promise you however that this will be one of the most compelling and interesting accounts of the history of whaling that you had ever you look so cold yes. It's a little chilly up here. What's the what's the weather like right? Now it's actually a pretty Balmy day today. It's about twenty degrees. It was about fifty degrees colder here last week. You've you've draw the line pretty much anything around ten. Just can't do it for me of all the things that makes this whole conversation. That much more interesting demuth was actually drawn to the Arctic in her young adult life and even lived in the Yukon for two years. And yes doing all the things that you're imagining right now tracking bears hunting. Caribou FISHING SALMON. And yes even. Husky Mushin Dog sledding and no. I'm not making that up. She's that for real your your first journeys out there. If I understand right was your running dog sled yes so when I was eighteen I decided to take a gap year as we. Now call them although they weren't really called then And went to a little community north of the Arctic Circle in the Yukon territory to be a dog handler which is basically an apprentice to somebody who has a dog team and I knew nothing about sled dogs. When I moved up there I was eighteen so I thought I knew something about things but I really didn't. And that was my first introduction to the Arctic. Okay and how long you said you do that for two years. Yes do you. Do you still remember how to do it? I mean I. It's kind of like riding a bicycle except in this particular case. You're working with dogs so you can remember how to do the physical pieces of it but you also need to have a relationship with animals. You're working with so. I'm sure that if I had a team and I spent a lot of time with them would would all come back because I would be making that relationship with dogs but I'd like a bicycle. You can't just grab one and go right right. Yeah that makes sense You don't have to get to know your bike. I right I probably ended up working appear because my dad read me too much Jack London when I was a kid. So there's definitely a literary connection in there now. I could do a really poor job of basically giving it a synopsis of the Book. Or I'm sure it would be much more articulate coming from you Tell us a little bit more about the Soviet whaling And more specifically what you found so fascinating a about that topic. Yes the book that I published. Just this past fall called floating coast looks at basically the the past two hundred years or so along the Bering Strait both the Russian Arctic and in the US Arctic. It's a it's a two country history but because it's an environmental history in some ways it's a history of no country because it's looking at processes an an animals that don't really matched onto nation state borders and the the the project is kind book ended no Pun intended by could have two episodes of large scale whaling the first one being in the nineteenth century for market whalers capitalist wailers most of them coming from New England in fact some of them from where I now live in Providence. Who were coming up to kill bowhead. Whales for oil for lamp oil mostly and then the book closes with a couple of chapters about Soviet whaling in the twentieth century. Which in many ways is just the socialist analog to the to the capitalist wailing in that it is Quite excessive it kills whales far outside their capacity to to reproduce. And keep keep up with the demand and those kind of frames of the book in some ways. Show the things that I found really interesting about this part of the world as a historian. Who's interested in the ways that people's ideas influence the environments? They live in and vice versa. Which is that. It's a it's a place that has a very similar ecology on both sides of the Bering Strait. If you drop down on the peninsula or the seward Peninsula Chukchi Peninsulas in Russia and the seward Peninsula's in Alaska. He can't really tell one from the other right. And let's you know the place extremely well. Because the the flora and the fauna in geology are really comparable but of course in the twentieth century. It gets split by these two big economic ideologies that imagine each other in opposition. Which is you know. Capitalism and socialism. So it's kind of a natural experiment to see how these two ways of managing environments in some sense that the Soviet Union the United States brought with them interact with Arctic species and in the case of Wales they do it very similarly which is more or less trying to kill everywhere they possibly can ya. It's like it's kind of shocking especially when you talk about like as a concern of how many whales are being impacted or what that's doing to the ecosystem comes up that the answer kind of always came back to will. Don't worry. Technology will save us from. That will deliver a positive outcome. Okay can you elaborate on that? Yes this was one of the really interesting commonalities I found between two groups of whalers who were operating hundred years apart from each other or more and in two extremely different cultural and economic contexts is at the end of nineteenth century moby. Dick STYLE TALL SHIP. Whalers call me. Ishmael an ordinary seaman before the mast on the good ship check. What found out a man on Christmas Day of the year? Eighteen forty four on a thousand days. Voight very aware that when they entered a new population of Wales and a piece of the ocean that they hadn't been hunting in before that they would they called. Wailing it out or fishing it out that they would kill off an enormous number of the animals that were that were available locally and that they were doing this and getting further and further from home. So they're aware and using the word extinction by the end of the nineteenth century but at the same time as they're talking about extinction they're basically saying well if we put in place some technological Improvements if our ships get faster. If we're more able to navigate around the sea ice will be able to still catch these whales and there was this kind of belief that because Wales were really intelligent. And all of the whalers nudists and talk about this in detail that there were more whales. They were just shy or had gotten smart and were hiding in new places. So there's actually a couple of lines in Moby Dick Melville talks about you know the whales are just hiding behind the Arctic Sea ice and then after the Second World War the Soviet Union sort of follows the same pattern in that they have very sophisticated marine biology by that point in many ways the the research that so the marine biologist or doing is ahead of what's happening in the United States particularly when it comes to studying ways that whales are social animals and able to communicate vocally with each other They're they're way ahead of what's happening in English. Speaking Countries but at the same time as an aware that that the populations of wheels are dropping but at the same time.

Says Bill de Blasio don't ask. Me what's going on the. City hall that's the post headline don't ask me what's going on in the city this is interesting though so he's trying to. Avoid, a, deposition he doesn't want to sit for this deposition on a. Legal case involving civil rights so he claims he doesn't micromanage he says his mayor I said broad goals and, objectives but while I, sometimes? Get, briefed on specific decisions I typically do not have unique knowledge on. The. Subject This is the mayor the mayor I dunno. Stuff I got briefed on stuff. And I really know it on the treadmill says I base my, approval or disagreement of the agency's. Decision on the. Information the basis decision, on the information is provided to them? So but the. Headline, is, don't ask me what's going on but in his defense here is no. No no he claims that the suit dates, back more, than twenty five, years before we took office he says just one of many that long? Predate his administration so that. Would, be an, excuse not, to want to sit for a deposition it's twenty five. Year old case but. I just. Think it's funny that the. Whole premise, is well I don't know what's going on don't ask me I'm. Only the mayor how. Would he know what's going on he's never hear. Oh boy he's always, off giving a speech somewhere or he's.
