Was The Nashville Bomber A 'Domestic Terrorist?'

"Exact motive is still unknown in the Nashville bombing from Christmas Day. Some are questioning why the suspect has not been classified as a domestic terrorist. We get more from CBS is Amy Watson, investigators say when they assess an event for domestic terrorism. It has to be tied to an ideology. Investigators say they're still unsure of his beliefs. Metro Council member Bob Mendez tweeted the decision to blow up in our V in the middle of downtown was to make a point about something. Whatever it was, it fits the domestic terrorism definition of former lead. National security prosecutor says businesses and homeowners. May not have insurance to cover acts of terrorism and an act of terrorism or not. CBS's Eric Control telling us when the investigation wraps up people in Nashville, all ready to pitch in and help rebuild their beloved downtown area Community Resource Center has received calls and emails from people across the country. People who have had natural at parties and weddings here in music City wanting to help Nashville as much as we've just been knocked down, and every time we get back up on the community Resource center is also collecting things like a trash. Cans gloves because as soon as those investigators have done, don't work with public works and other organizations to get down there to clean up all that debris and officials suspect the man accused of detonating that bomb was more intent on causing destruction than actual fatalities.

Why Michael B. Jordan was chosen as People's Sexiest Man Alive

"Sexiest man alive. Two thousand twenty is another michael jordan and just an objectively correct choice for just off the bat. I have to say listen. I both went through stints where we were bills ascent. I currently am which meant that. We brought his guests in whenever he would have celebrity guests on his podcast. And i cannot remember a male guests that made as much of a flurry among the wringer women. When he came onto the lot as michael be there were people. I won't name names but jordan liggins was sitting outside. She was like casually working outside. One day i was like weird. We're choice people were stationed across the lot to see him when he came in. It was a bath. Y'all i can think of two instances where there's gonna be s podcast guests. I like made the rounds pass. Bills office just right. You know why. Advisory michael jordan was one of them. I actually was surprised. I'm shocked he has not been named as in the past. This suggests easy choice. Like it's easy in the best way like he is people sector the people's sexiest man. I cannot believe this hasn't happened yet. I agree i. This is my. I was surprised about this choice because it was just kind of seemed to obvious where he had he should have won it before. And i kinda thought if he hadn't done it before then like he just wasn't quite what they were looking for which is wrong and also i was like what is he done this year because usually when they pick these things. It's someone who has really been in the news who has had some huge project you know it was the rock. It was blake shelton when he was like the voice. You know it was john legend and it's usually like tied to someone who's just been in the news a ton and had a really big year so when it was michael jordan i was like what was he in this year. However twenty twenty three movies so through all that could be during his done with. Tsa in his profile is he's donated to charities. He has been at home as all the responsible celebrities have been doing and like sitting at home donated the charities and being hot. it's just like peak twenty twenty. So i apologize to michael jordan for thinking that it wouldn't be him because that's all you have to do is twenty twenty and that's great happy for him. Each year grows more and more embarrassing than blake. Shelton was named anyway. Okay so let's go to some of the people we thought we're to be named the sexiest man of twenty twenty. So gotta give a quick shot to our producer. Kinda you can jump in if you'd like but i say who thought it was going to be. Which is dr fauci or shawn. Mendez goes on. I just the spectrum of twenty twenty runs from dr fauci tucson mendez. I really thought. I would something dr fauci as you were. Yeah amanda the moment. He had a bigger year totally. I was thinking. Chris cuomo john king obviously big cnn. Gal i thought it was joey king for a second. I was like joey king. That'd be cool. Little switch up kissing booth three. I don't Also thought. Jason derulo oliver tiktok. I thought chance the rapper. Maybe patrick mahomes the athlete not to flex on my sports knowledge. I'm dan love you. Who was in shits creek. Big actress doctor and a lot of these people were in the issue so we actually had a lot of good guesses in terms of who would be included because like we said they have a lot of little sexy participation trophies to hand out My predictions for the cover. As you know. I'm just to online and sometimes i think that the people who are talked about online are the people that the rest of the world is also obsessed with. What's actually michael jordan's a peak internet boyfriend. So actually i do. I think i was on the right track. I thought it would be a chris evans and pine both had a shot. Because they obviously chris evans very politically active This year and then chris pine has wonder woman coming out and christmas. So i thought maybe he had a shot. Kiat was a long shot just because he would never agree to this. I don't think i think he's overdue. He won a long long time ago. Let's bring back. He was also included in the sexiest happily settled guy which was category so he did get a he got he got something in there and then i said robert pattinson who i don't know if you would be into this like seeing repents and twenty twenty people shoot just seems like a weird fit but maybe next year when he's batman. I thought i was like you know. Let's just give it to brad pitt. Again twenty twenty. It's kind of a throwaway year or so like just give it to him again. like church. sure he hasn't had it in like what. Ten years repeats list over time over the decades. Sure exactly. he's still

How Aimee Garcia Took Charge of Her Hollywood Career

"Amy thanks for doing this. Thank you for helping me. I want to start with Scrappy heart Productions because while I am sure that we have some listeners in our midst who are aspiring actors says I'm going to guess that more are trying to figure out how to go from worker to owner from performer to Creator. So take me back to the moment where you decided that you wanted to have your own production company. It kind of happened organically with glow so they asked my writing partner and I who's also bodiqua. She's Puerto Rican and wrote A New York Times bestseller called crazy is my superpower. We were talking. We love superheroes and we love comics and we never saw ourselves represented and they asked us to write glow the comic based on the Netflix series wage. And that was the first time that we thought let's highlight the Mexican character in there that we felt could have been more mature dived into during the series. What if we pitched that relationship between Yolanda's character and the Muslim character and we pitched it to Netflix and they loved it off and they got their own covers on the comics. And that was the first time I thought oh my goodness. This is so cool that I was able to with my writing partner highlight a Mexican carrier. And have her be the center of the story even though she's a peripheral character on the show. So I have been following your writing partner and now your production company. Mendez for years because she and I both grew up in Union City, New Jersey and so years ago when she was in the WWE. My mom was like my mom's always on the lookout for Union City kids. So she was like a Union City kid in the WWE and it's like oh and she's Latina like this is amazing. We're so you guys were writing Partners before you were producing Partners, correct? We were writing Partners, we wrote Globe which we love doing and then we started writing Dungeons and Dragons and she's like, hey, I found this article on this badass female viking who had a hero's burial and we were like, let's highlight her and she had like this huge scar on her face. And then we did this Disney writers program and they said you should start a production company because you guys have so many ideas and you guys run off. Dammit with comedy and drama and T and you guys should create your original material and then we were like, yeah, we we should do that and then the kicker was really the, Khan's that is when our fans I would go around for Lucifer and she would go around for WWE and they'd ask us what's next like what are you doing? Next? We love your character and we thought well, let's check them an answer. Let's say we're creating our own characters and making these peripheral diverse characters the centers of their own stories. And then we just did it. I think this was all the love in my life, which is I am genuinely surprised that it took that long for you to realize that you wanted and needed a production company. I know, you know what it is. I've been really lucky as an actor. I recorded Modoc while I was shooting Lucifer and I filmed El Chicano while I was shooting Lucifer and I've always worked as an actor. I've had a bunch of failed pilots and I've had success with Dexter and shows that were supposed to be big and only lasts a year like rush hour and Trauma and I just throw myself all in and I think I didn't have the bandwidth to think outside of that kind of singular horse race track. I wish I would have done this sooner. I write 8 hours a day. I just dedicated myself for the past three years to writing every day. I have off and any time I finish a take I'll just run to my computer and right. So what was the first thing you did once you in a j decided that you wanted to start a production company content content is King whether it's you getting the rights to an article or writing it yourself off. Of or putting together a pitch for an existing IP like a j did with crazy as my superpower IP is everything and if you can have original Ip, that's the most important thing. So I really think putting pen-to-paper is the first step whether it's an article a book a script. I mean a g and I both wrote Our Own scripts and then with my show I was looking for a showrunner to help me write this pilot for a family Latino comedy that I want to write. I just ended writing it myself life. That's why we call the scrappy heart cuz we when we got the job for glow we didn't even know how to write a comic book. We literally YouTube how to write a comic book and like DIY like we're total DIY.

With you. Thank you so much. I take care you too. And now the game we're really interesting people get asked about things that somehow failed to interest them until now it's called not my job a lot of people who work at the CIA say it's nothing like the movies no skulduggery sneaking around or disguises, but not Jonah. Mendez she actually did all that cool spy stuff and for many years. As chief of disguises Jonah, Mendez. Welcome to wait wait. Don't tell me. Here so I. First of all, when I found out that you existed, I also found out that the headache chief of disguise. Is, that was that actually your title a lot of people are amazed at that title. Yeah. We had quite an effort underway in the field of disguise and and there's a very famous story just to sort of start right off with your level of expertise that you went in to the oval. Office. With the first president, Bush disguised as somebody else and he couldn't tell yes. Yes. It was full face mask king with their. I looked great and and according to the story you asked him to guess what you were demonstrating. He couldn't do it in the new stood up and pulled off your face and. He had been chief of CIA I, remember that. So he kind of knew where the where the level of expertise was this mask I was showing him was just notching it up about four levels. I mean it was it was a huge leap in technology. and. I told him that I was gonNA showing the latest disguise stuff that we had and he's looking like, where's your stuff and I said I'm I'm wearing it but I'm gonNA take it off and show it to you and he said Oh don't don't take it off and he got up and he came and he looked and he walked around he said okay. So I I did that Tom Cruise feel. which should be called the Shawn Mendez fuel because I was looking. Ahead of Tom Cruise, getting. And I'm holding this thing up in the air and the White House photographer took a picture of it. Wow. So we have this moment captured in in all time. It took me ten years before they decided to send it to me really and they airbrushed the mask out of my hands what? What in my library you know in the wall where you put all your good enough I've got a picture of myself sitting in front of the desk of the president of the United States with my finger in the air it looks like lecturing him. So you got involved in the say a back in the sixties, right? Because you were dating somebody who are married to somebody who turned out to being the CIA. Is that right? Yeah. I left Wichita Kansas to go. In a friends wedding in Germany and I basically never went home right I stayed I got a job at Chase Manhattan Bank couldn't I've never worked in a bank I didn't speak German I couldn't do math what was the fourth thing I didn't have a work permit and they hired me I'm never turning down a wedding and Again that's how it can turn out when they found out that you got a job in Germany with no banking experience not speaking German completely. That when they realize, you would be an excellent spy. Anything Never asked me that question so you got into the. And did they immediately send you out on spy work like you know to Seduce Mary? And the things that we all seem in the movies? I was the secretary for the director of this office called Ot s was the cue or you've seen this before you compared what you did to the cube ranch and the James Bond movies. We made the the gear, the equipment, the toys that the case officers like the like the laser eyeglasses, the turned into submarines, that kind of thing. If you if you brought us a good idea and it was feasible and you really needed it, we would probably make you one but. We we were a little different than the movies because q would always handle weapons off and James would lose them. He would break them. He would you know sorry I just imagine you watching James Bond Movies and getting upset about what James Bond was doing with his tools like damage aims to put it back in the case. That's right. I WanNa know how are you allowed to tell us all this? This seems like the kind of information that we're only supposed to speculate about. But never actually know these things happen. They must really know the NPR audience. We've written enough books everything in those books is approved. What's your favorite disguise? You ever did that you can tell us about. How well? It would be one that my husband did but I I helped him with it. Before you go on I should clarify for the audience that your husband and assume you're talking about is Tony Mendez north no longer with us who was among many other things the character played by Ben Affleck in the movie argo that was him that was your husband. He's the man who told Ben Affleck that he wasn't good looking enough to play him. About time someone took Ben Affleck. down. Please proceed with the story. So Tony was showing our office director this new operational technique GONNA use it in Moscow tons of the end of the hall inability didn't use. He's wearing Ranko got a briefcase where suit starts walking down the hall yet forty five steps in forty five seconds to cover this ground and in that forty five steps he turned from Amanda Business Suit with a briefcase to an old lady and a pink scruffy thing with a shawl gray hair pushing grocery cart. Wait a minute. Hang it this lady out of here. She's a witch. She's not. She's a witch I did I did read were you said that you could make a man into a woman or woman to a man but something about the character of the CIA agents the men didn't WanNa have to become women now they didn't. Neither did US Marines. Really how often did you have to ask a marine to become a woman? Now and then. Wade professional or just a private interest of yours. I know if your child won the Halloween contest every year always really so Are you at all serious and if so can you tell us about some of the disguises or costumes that you helped her child create? What I remember one from cats where Just do we could do a great cat face I remember one that was unconcerned. Attached to each other, and then we discovered that no one could go to the bathroom all night because the whole patch ago. Wait a minute you child and his friend. He was a son were all pumpkins to each other's they'll walk around as a group actually that was Tony Me. You'd think to experience CIA agents would realize that if they're attached by the stem. Difficulty? We got into that stuff. Now, it's fun well Jonah, it is a pleasure to have you here but we haven't fact invited you here to play a game we're calling disguise sure.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu without bringing up a little baggage and today I'm not talking about human rights violations our next in parts of the West Bank either I'm talking about actual baggage in this case bags and suitcases full of literal dirty laundry. All foreign leaders are extended the courtesy of laundry services while they stay in America and iron shirt here a dry cleaned dress. They're reasonable requests. Any busy head of state might have but according to. Accounts from staff members across multiple administrations. The Netanyahu's like a college kid home from spring break bring actual suitcases of dirty laundry for us to clean. But America isn't the only country. Netanyahu seizes his own personal laundromat. The laundry issue first surfaced after reports that the prime minister and his wife took a whopping eleven suitcases on a one day trip to Portugal, in December, which raises a different set of questions entirely like how many dirty pairs of underwear can one despot actually generate? Benyamin Netanyahu prime. Minister of Israel always brings his dirty laundry with him when he visits so that his hosts can wash it. Your next story of a horrible house guest is from Dulcie say Sloan.

When asked to pay for damages as he was at the Wyndham Hotel in Rosemont Illinois in two, thousand, fourteen Mr Books responds that he is not responsible for the damages because Chris Gaines was staying in the room. The hotel has was never able to recover the funds to repair the room and is now called the Dracula sweet. It's booked on Halloween till twenty twenty-five.

How Have Hispanic Americans Helped Shape the U.S.?

"Brain Steph Lauryn Boban here. Here in the United States, it's Hispanic heritage month, which officially began as Hispanic Heritage Week in nineteen, sixty eight. Unlike many other campaigns that observe and honor the contributions of a particular group of Americans Hispanic heritage bump run throughout. September. But rather starts on September fifteenth and continues through mid. October. So, why does it start in the middle of the month? Well, a Costa Rica El Salvador Guatemala Honduras. Nicaragua. All celebrate their Independence Day on September fifteenth. Mexico's is on September Sixteenth Chili's is September eighteenth and believes independence. Day Is September twenty first. By, stretching into October, the holiday also includes de la Raza on October twelve, which is a kind of rejection of Columbus Day because of Christopher, Columbus's many crimes against humanity and see our episode on Columbus Day for more about that. De la Rosa instead celebrates the melding of Hispanic races or Raza, and cultures. In honor of Hispanic Heritage Month, let's talk about three times at Hispanic Americans have changed the course of history. Some three hundred years after Spanish, conquerors became the first non native Americans to view the Mississippi River and later the Grand Canyon one host. Jeff Marianne Hernandez helps smooth transfer of the territory of Florida into US rule Florida was still part of Spain when Hernandez was born in Saint Augustine in seventeen eighty four. But that changed when he was selected to serve in the House of Representatives and was sworn into duty in eighteen, twenty three as the first Hispanic person to serve in. Congress. In historical context Hernandez being a slave owner is a controversial figure. Still. He remains the first one, hundred twenty eight Hispanic people to serve in the. US Congress. Maybe of more relevance today is the first Hispanic senator elected to a full term in Congress. New Mexico's Dennis Shabas in nineteen thirty five. We spoke with Paul Orbits Historian at the University of Florida. He said in addition to being the first American born Hispanic senator. He's critical for the time we live in because he fought on behalf of all working class. Equally, he fought for higher wages legislation he fought for people to have the right to organize a union he fought for more progress and you as foreign policy for Latin America he organized N. Double ACP leaders against Jim Crow Segregation. Then, a Chevette as one of those people we can use Hispanic heritage month to talk about our connection other people's democratic struggles. Today's Congress. The one hundred sixteenth has forty seven members of Hispanic heritage. Hispanic Americans also helped turn the tide of the civil war. Some twenty thousand were involved in the conflict. While some in the southeast sided with the confederacy especially those who came from wealthy families with plantations or other businesses in Louisiana Alabama more supported the union. or it said a lot of Mexican American soldiers fought on the side of the Union army in the southwest and actually helped defeat the confederacy in the southwest. Hispanic people in the West back the Mexican government to and celebrated the country's defeat of the French at the battle of Puebla on May fifth of sixty two single Demayo in a victory that may have helped prevent the French from siding with the confederacy and thus ultimately helping the Union win. A bit more modern only about eight years before the US Supreme Court ruled in Brown versus the Board of Education, that segregation in public schools is unconstitutional as Spanish schoolgirl showed the way. Sylvia Mendez a Puerto Rican and Mexican heritage was just eight years old when she and her brothers were denied enrollment into the white only Westminster School district in Orange County in nineteen, forty three. At the time about eighty percent of California, school districts were segregated. Her Parents Gonzalo. Felicitas Mendez enlisted other parents to fight the decision and they took the school board to court. After appeals that were abandoned short of the US Supreme Court Mendez Versus Westminster became the first successful federal school desegregation case in the nation that was in nineteen, forty seven. The case was important arguing that segregation itself even if schools were separate but equal was harmful unconstitutional under the fourteenth amendment specifically, the clause, the calls for protection of the laws for all citizens. In appeals Sylvia's case was argued by Thurgood Marshall who went on to argue for the

Schumacher who represents one of millions struggling to cope every day I, wake up and wonder how I'm going to feed my children how I'm going to afford it if I get sick and are there any snakes outside? Even, worse, what if there are snakes inside? Then what am I going to have to quit my job and fight off AACSB fulltime? That's heartbreaking Marseille Ernie precautions we can take to avoid snakes like say standing on a chair in the center of the kitchen authorities are currently advising that anyone who sees a snake should be fully prepared to point and yell snake. That's all isn't there. Anything else we can do not really I mean if you want, you can take a picture with your phone to show everyone how gross it is a just when you thought twenty twenty couldn't get any worse I guess our only hope at this point is that they all accidentally get stepped on and that's right.

Why Is Plankton Our Tiniest Unsung Hero?

"One of Earth's unsung heroes is also among its tiniest plankton. A single celled algae. It's barely visible to the eye. But it contributes to some of the world's most important resources it's essential to the food chain. It's a main supplier of oxygen and it's the fuel that keeps our cars running and our homes heated these organisms. No bigger than a human hair float. The sunny upper parts of the Ocean. The two main types of plankton phytoplankton and zooplankton support one another phytoplankton and organism so small. The millions can fit in one drop of water produces its own energy through photosynthesis accounts for nearly half of all photosynthesis on the planet zooplankton which are tiny animals in. Crustaceans like Copa Pods. Along with other small fish and marine creatures eat phytoplankton. Then become food for bigger fish and so on up the food chain from seals dolphins virtually every creature in the Ocean. Each either plankton or an organism. That depends on plancton in a David versus Goliath. Battle filter feeding baleen whales like the humpback rely on tiny organisms. Such as plankton and Krill. A filter these whales take huge gulfs of water than use their tongues to push out liquid. So foods like Krill. Plankton remain right. Whales also swim up and mouthed through plankton filled waters. They trapped the plankton and third tongue. That pushes the organisms down their throat but plankton role in the food doesn't stop in the ocean polar bears and seabirds rely on Plankton. Fueled meals like seals and fish. Even humans. Count on fish and therefore plankton to survive Americans loan eat around fifteen and a half pounds or about seven kilos of fish and shellfish per person per year. That's a whole lot of plankton. Plankton itself is making. Its way toward dinner tables. It's not common in restaurants yet. But on Angelina and Nuno Mendez. Both shafts of Michelin starred restaurants in Britain added Plankton to a special event menu in two thousand thirteen. This included delicacies. Like a plankton cocktail and plankton risotto. Leon told the UK newspaper Metro. It's velvety dry. Before mixing it with liquid silky ones mixed oily an elegant pungent on the nose yet subtle and leaves a long finish in the mouth while it's still wearing restaurants. Plankton is slowly catching on. According to fine. Dining lovers plankton producers Spanish agriculture company Phytoplankton Marino are growing microalgae for human consumption and one chef even tried his hand at Phytoplankton bread. Plantains earthly contributions go beyond the food chain. Marine plants like FIDO PLANKTON KELP and the plankton. Pretty seventy percent of Earth's oxygen in fact pro chloro- caucus type of phytoplankton produces the oxygen for one out of every five breaths a human takes and IDA plankton superpowers. Don't stop there. Not ONLY DO THEY HELP. Produce Oxygen through photosynthesis phytoplankton take carbon from the atmosphere during the process of living and store it in the ocean. They die which ultimately helps curb climate. Change this is similar to the process. Trees used to store carbon in leaves since photosynthesis consumes carbon dioxide. The carbon is basically stored in each plankton. A one group of scientists found that FIDO plankton incorporate up to forty five to fifty billion tons of inorganic carbon into their cells and that petroleum. We used to fuel our cars. It's made reprocess. The dates back to ancient seas and also involves that tiny superhero of an organism plankton when plankton die they sink to the bottom of the oceans. Here debris settles on top of them and chemical reactions transform the materials into waxy kerogen and Bittermann a black tar. That's one of the main ingredients of petroleum the carriage and also undergoes further changes as it heats and it becomes what's known as crude oil or if temperatures are even hotter natural gas plankton may be essential but the small organism is also a little bit trixie scientists too long struggle to accurately predict fido plank to numbers and growth rates. But that changed in two thousand five thanks to Nasr's satellite observations and thus reported that scientists can figure out phytoplankton numbers based on how green water is when phytoplankton get stressed by cold water. They become less green phytoplankton. Rich waters become greener as conditions and growth rates improve. Oh and by night. Plankton filled water conglo through the organisms bioluminescence electric blue green red or orange researchers estimate phytoplankton makes one percent of all of Earth's biomass. That's the total mass of organisms. But that number is dwindling study published in the journal Nature in July of twenty ten showed that gradually warming ocean waters have destroyed some forty percent of earth's phytoplankton since nineteen fifty whether we know it or not all. Humans rely on this micro algae. That's why a forty percent decrease or more is worrisome.

It would've just been damaging to the country's morale like well if he's by maybe. This place is going to Helena handbasket. That kind of I think it's that kind of thing I think that's what it was. But he knew or he thought he knew he said. Thank you actually. He said some things that were really profane but they were just heat of the moment. No way in Hell GonNa leave the motherland. Wow I mean those guys have brass balls you all do honestly like it's really reading the book. You're like Oh gosh what's going to happen next. Please don't kill to He got killed. You know it's really upsetting in the risk level is so high even like you said before you don't even meet these agents for years and years and years because it's too dangerous to do. There was one situation in which I think the guy had done something with the wax of the ink and he had spilled a decoder Stefan it and it obscured the message. Would Have you destroy the coded message. What do you do? You have to explain in the next drop like hey sorry war hog seven. Hq spilled coffee over that thing. You just risked your life to give us. Can you just make another one and drop it off real quick? What can you even do? I think that was the Harry's moment in the book that was an operation that my husband was. He happened to be in station. When that happened. This message came in the message was the agent had prepared the message. Wrong hit used. It sounds ridiculous. He used the wrong kind of paper he used paper with it. Had A wax like butcherblock. What's your paper butcher? Might put some meat in it. So it's waterproof. That's not what you're supposed to do. He had written it in cursive instead of block. Letters cursive is harder to read. If you're doing secret writing hit just sent this message. And when they went to develop it Secret writing and it's not lemon juice in heat or is very sophisticated system but the developer had alcohol in it. So what you take the letter. And you basically floated in a tray of liquid that has alcohol in it that and only that will develop the message so the man that's developing it not my husband but another man he puts it in the tray. And you do it by inspection. You Watch it. And he's looking any. He sees the message he sees it. Come up it's just like developing photograph. So he can see the messages all in Russian. He can't read it but he can see it and he goes to pull it out of the liquid and the letters just float off the page and dissolve and it was a nightmare because this particular message was so.

"Everywhere around us but they weren't really after us. They were after the Russians that were working with us. They were after the people in their country that were committing treason. Were betraying their country. Working Press and if they could get to those people they would execute them and they did that so much pressure and I definitely want to discuss that later in the show because there are some very specific examples of people that just sound like they either had a tolerance for stress. That was well beyond just not even in the solar system is the level of trust that the rest of have or they were wired completely differently and I wonder what you think about that. But this is nineteen seventy-six Moscow. And what through eighty five? What time period are we talking about here runs up to about eighty nine and I think in the book I think the first case we talk about was really our first case there? That was in sixty three. That was at the beginning when we were unable to basically manage an espionage case in in Moscow that one only lasted eighteen months and they found him and they arrested him and they execute him was only been coffee. That's so terrifying looking back. Eighty nine not that long ago it is but it isn't and I was born in one thousand nine hundred. I'm not even forty right now so to have a country that's like this in one thousand nine hundred eighty nine so to tell. -Tarian is crazy. I've been to North Korea a few times and I would imagine it's kind of similar. North Korea seems I can't imagine anything more controlled than North Korea. But maybe it's possible. I'm not sure North Korea's almost in a category of its own. I haven't been to North Korea so I can't really comment but I've read a number of books about it about how it operates about how they control their citizenry and I mean. We've all seen little peek set. What happens if step out of line including if you're an American student over there who pulls a poster off wall you know incomes home basically brain dead so they yeah they know how to keep the lid on and how to keep their people marching in line. What's interesting about this? I think a lot of people will be like. Oh America's not free either. I always get those emails after I do shows like this but I think what people don't understand is the reason that they were able to keep such a tight grouping of you at a tight embrace on you is because they don't have any back then they had no semblance of freedom. They could lockdown anything. They wanted people had no right so they could just absolutely flood the city with state resources and monitor everything and everyone and that type of thing is just not possible in a free society. Would you agree with that people who speak that way? Probably haven't travelled very widely. You almost need to go take a look at the other possibilities places that you could have been but you weren't places that you could be living today but you're not. You're living in the United States to really appreciate the freedoms that we have. You know I I never WanNa talk about politics. When I'm talking about this book but it ebbs and it flows there are people who would like to tighten up security. There are people who are much more relaxed about security but even when security is tight back here doesn't even begin to approach. What some of these foreign countries but their citizens through I watch documentaries all the time and I saw recently in Belarus and there's a group of students that do these plays that are kind of like. Hey we should have more freedom and look. They're locking down or internet and they get busted beat up by cops and thrown in jail and they go missing. It's really crazy to have a country like that in Eastern Europe in two thousand twenty. You know there was a rock band in In Russia will be. They called Pussy Riot. Yes she was on the show. Actually really yeah sorry. I didn't hear that I'd like to hear one of them. Talk about it but it was a great opportunity for the government to make a statement to remind their citizens that this is not allowed. This is what will happen faith through her in prison for years and they had her making uniforms and they were beating up and salting are she's toughest nails. You'd have to be to be in that position. She's just one of the toughest people that I know. She's a true. Her international notoriety is an artist is for a good reason. What's strange is you know you think. Oh who's GONNA commit treason against their own country? They must hate Russia. They must hate the United States. She actually loves Russia in hates Vladimir Putin so she's very specific about that. I said why do you still live in Russia? And she said I would die without it I would suffocate without it. I'm Russian Vladimir Putin and his cronies we have to get rid of so she is just not afraid of anyone obviously a lot of Russians have that same visceral attachment to their country. They love their motherland. It's hard to separate them from it. We've exfiltrated some people we've had defectors come out from Russia. They come to this country they see all these choices. They have in a drugstore. You have to choose from like forty kinds of toothpaste. They have trouble coping with that and a lot of them. Get very very morose and depressed and discovered that they would like to go back. That's what Russia now of course capitalist more or less I mean yes. There's a lot of cronies stuff going on there. And that's a whole that's a whole different show. We talked about some of that with bill browder before foot having that kind of environment in communism like Old School. Stalinism or Leninism. I guess it would be called. Well I don't know I'm not up on that. It's either North Korea's certainly Stalinist having that kind of society with no choice and no free commerce to miss that is kind of like an alien notion to those of us who grew up in the United States or the Western world at all. That's right you know the mark that Stalin left on that society carries on today. If you sit down with a Russian couple and you say that your family history in your country. What part of Russia were they from? How did that go? You almost always hear the stories about the purges you'll hear stories about arrests and murders where their widows were orphans. There were just these tragedies on a scale that we can't imagine stolen was just he was just so brutal isn't even a big enough word for what he did and he left a mark that continues today. There are people in Russia who can't proceed further in their careers because say their grandfather worked with the Bolsheviks or the white Russians there's a mark there's mark in their personnel files somewhere that says they can't be trusted they can't be promoted beyond a certain level and that's one of the things that drives that citizenry into our arms. They hate that part of Russia. They that piece of Russia and that is a catalyst for them to work with us. I have a friend who I grew up with and went to college with him and lived with his father. Has I think too. And he worked for Dupont and had a pretty darn good career guy with two chemistry. Phd's I said. Why did you leave Russia? And they said well. I wasn't allowed to have a job because I'm Jewish and they said we have to. Phd's what a waste of human capital and needs to know why they're doing how they're doing compared to countries that don't deal with that kind of thing exactly. Yeah so going back to the Moscow rules. I think it was at a CIA official that quoted in the book. That said it would be easier to run agent on Mars that Dick Helms one of one of our legendary chief CIA. That was his comment. And it was right on the mark. There's something like fifty thousand KGB agents in Moscow to counter the CIA and other foreign intelligence agencies just thinking about that. I read that I wrote that down and going over my notes this morning. I thought I think the town I grew up in which was not that small had forty thousand people in it now. It was next to other towns so it seemed larger for that reason but fifty thousand people. There's you'd need multiple high schools. That's the size of the University of Michigan campus including all staff and faculty all the students from all the different university campuses in the area. That's still more people you know that number came from Oleg Kalugin and only was KGB officer. He didn't defect quality lives in the United States now. He transplanted himself he became he became disenchanted with KGB and he went into politics in Russia he was in the parliament for awhile and then he decided he'd start a new life over here they had already taught him as a spy in the KGB. Perfect English I mean only came and just fit right in these board member of the international spy museum. Now he's a Russian representative there He was the one that gave me the number. I hadn't seen that number until I interviewed him. I interviewed Jack. Barsky also on this show. Who Have you heard of him at all? Yes yeah that kind of story to know that that's happening is absolutely crazy. Because when I look at the people who let's say defect which is the wrong word but the people that go and they move over to Russia. It's like Steven Seagal where we're just kind of like all right. See you later. Nobody's going to miss you. You know. It's not some high level parliamentarian who decides to go start living in Washington DC or Manhattan. Because they're sick of it. It's somebody who's kind of generally not stupor beloved type of person and has maybe a rough or strange passed in actually prefers authoritarians over normal societies. And that's I think speaks a lot. I'M NOT ANTI RUSSIA BY ANY MEANS. I think the police fascinating and I think the people are brilliant. Two Cultures Amazing foods amazing. I pretty much like everything about that. Other than some of these major sort of little tags on the reputation of the way that they treat people. It's hard to say that as an American given our track record but it it is different and I wonder what you think about that. Because it's definitely there were kind of not really in the same league when it comes to health society functions. In my opinion you know in the thirties and the forties. There were a lot of Americans who were interested in that experiment going on in Russia. They kind of bought into that idea of this capitalist state where you worked as hard as you needed to and and you will get everything that you needed to carry on. It was interesting. A lot of people went that way for ideological reasons. You meant communist right. Yeah I'm sorry. Yeah and then that tapered off entirely and the ideological flow shifted and the people that they would come to us were looking for our society our freedoms our openness our our ability to live a life unencumbered by all of the restrictions that you find Moscow now the embassy in the Soviet Union. They discovered later head microphones in all the rooms to price. The price ceilings but even in the foundation during construction. I always wondered about this. I thought how come if we're building a embassy that's obviously going to be used for intelligence and diplomacy in a country that might be hostile to the United States. How on Earth can we build that? Where there's no spy gear placed into the actual fabric of the building? And that obviously happened. You know what I'm talking to a public audience like it was yesterday and we get to this point if it comes up first thing I say. How many is there anybody? Here who's worked for State Department? Usually there is not because then I talk about State Department in not best terms the seat we were given originally an old building. It was an apartment building and the United States embassy was in that building for many many years. It was a fire hazard. It was the electricity. Didn't work everything was wrong with it and it was sprinkled with bugs of course then we decided that we needed a new embassy and the Russians decided that they needed a new embassy in DC. It's always reciprocal. Whatever we do at one an embassy we can do to the other. They move forward together so they started building their embassy in. Dc WE started building our new embassy in Russia but State Department brokered the whole deal and stay department for all the wonderful things that they do. Security is not nearly as high on their list is it is at CIA show for starters they gave the Russians the highest piece of ground in Washington. Dc and that's where they built their new embassy which is allowed them to intercept all kinds of microwave. Signals I mean from that kind of point of view. It's an ideal location. They gave us the lowest point in Moscow. It's almost down in a little bit of swamp so we started out on the wrong foot. State Department decided that there was no reason that the pieces of our building couldn't be pre assembled by Russian citizens the pre cast concrete. Rebar the big pieces that go into making. A high-rise building was all put together in Moscow whereas the Soviets in Washington DC insisted on bringing all their workers and no American touched anything not a brick when they built the Soviet.
